Descendants, rate of reproduction

I've done google search after google search (usually on reproductive speeds and genealogical charts), but nothing I've found has been helpful, so I turn to you.

If a man alive during the reign of Pharaoh Khufu (2589–2566 BC), married with two children (fraternal twins, a boy and a girl), found himself flung through time and fetched up around 2285 AD, how many descendants would he have (presuming normal birth and infant mortality rates), and how many generations would be between him and them?

Edit: Answered, thank you!
