When a young John Constantine learned of Harry, he dug him up in a bid to learn more about his ancestory before burying the hapless creature and leaving him to rot for another twenty years.
John returned to Harry's grave a more mature man and, at the creature's request, killed him.

 

 There is no account of descendants of Harry Constantine until George and Harriet.

 

Lord George Constantine

Died: c. 1775-1778

Sandman #29 Neil Gaiman, Stan Woch, Dick Giordano

Mentioned by Robespierre in his account of Johanna's family

(also mentions that Sir Francis Dashwood is rumoured to be her father which implicates the Hell Fire club - although it was not known as such at the time.)

c.1775: Johanna Constantine's parents are hanged for treason. "When (Johanna) was barely old enough to bleed". LC#2

 

Lady Harriet Constantine

Died c. 1775-1778

Sandman #29 Neil Gaiman, Stan Woch, Dick Giordano

Lady Constantine #1-4 Andy Diggle, Goran Sudzuka

Adventuress; Johanna Constantine died of old age on the 25th of October 1859, having lived for ninety-nine long years. SM#49

Obtained title 1785-6 LC#4

Met Morpheus in tavern 1789 SM#13

June 8th 1794 engaged by Morpheus to find the head of his son Orpheus. SM#29

Robespierre says she is 32 - one year out ?

She reportedly stole papers from the Russian imperial court in 1786 and was involved in a slave scandal in Lousiana in 1791.

Given that her parents were hanged for treason, I wonder if Johanna was involved in The Madness of King George III ? It began shortly after she regained her title !

 

Un-named female

Born & died: 1760

Sandman #29 Neil Gaiman, Stan Woch, Dick Giordano

Johanna's twin sister. Mentioned by Robespierre in his account of Johanna's family

 

"Mouse"

Born: c. 1780

Lady Constantine #1-4 Andy Diggle, Goran Sudzuka

Johanna's daughter as revealed in Lady Constantine #4.

If people think Mouse is Johanna's sister perhaps she was born before the parents died ? I suspect not long after.

 

James Constantine

Late 18th century

Hellblazer #105 Paul Jenkins, Sean Phillips

drug supplier to Samuel Taylor Coleridge (c1797)

http://www.incompetech.com/authors/coleridge http://www.robertfulford.com/porlock.html

Lived in Porlock, near Exmoor. Described by Coleridge as the Person from Porlock who interrupted his work on Kubla Khan Given the above date, he must be closely related to Johanna - although Robespierre believed she had no siblings. A son ?

Appears to be same age as Coleridge in 105 he's an apothecary

 

"Dark Conrad" Constantine

Early 19th century.

Swamp Thing #114 & 115 Nancy Collins, Tom Mandrake

Caribbean pirate; contemporary of Jean Lafitte (1780?Ė1826?)

I have a suspicion this may have been a close relative of Johanna. She had been in Louisiana previously. SM#29

Was a member of "The Brimstone Circle". A Baronet stripped of his title. Escaped Lafitte when he fled to Hell having done a deal with Older (Lovecraftian) Gods.

 

Aloysius Quinn

 Born: c.1815?

Died: late 19th century

Hellblazer #179 Mike Carey, Marcelo Frusin

The connection to the Red Sepulchre rests on John's mother's side of the family tree, the Quinns. He was in India in 1840, probably making him mid-twenties at that time.

 

NOTE to prospective Hellblazer writers and people who would use John Constantine in a story. There is no Constantine from the years when Jack the Ripper was doing his business. This is as it should be.

Do not make me have to come round there and sort you out.

 

Lance Corporal William Constantine

Died at the Somme, 7/1/16

Hellblazer #69 Garth Ennis, Steve Dillon

John's grandfather.
On the first of July, nineteen sixteen, William found himself standing alone amidst the butchered remains of his comrades on the battlefield of the Somme. Refers to Alice & little Tommy

Johnís father, murdered by the Family Man, currently in Hell;
Thomas was killed by The Family Man, a serial killer who was hunting John, but his story didn't end with his death. Back when he was a child, after a particularly nasty argument with his father, John cast a spell that ensured his father would suffer a slow death - the result of this was that Thomas was forced to live a life after death as a ghost. When John realised this was happening, he broke the spell and, unknowingly, doomed his fathers soul to Hell.

Hellblazer #39 & 40 Jamie Delano, Dave McKean

Johnís more magically adept twin died at birth in 1953.
A twin brother, who died along with Mary Constantine as she gave birth to John. It's possible that John may even have killed his brother in his mothers womb, strangling him with his umbilical cord, but John's father was also implicated
