William S. Davis was born in Georgia, moved from Heard Co., GA (1850) to Carroll Co., GA (1865) to Randolph Co., AL (1870) and then Cass Co., TX. His final home was in Naples, TX where he moved about 1887. He was a farmer. He was a Confederate soldier for nine months according to his pension application [seven months according to records], which was approved in 1900 in Naples, Morris, TX. He served in Mabry's Company "E", 19th Georgia Regiment. He was buried in Naples, just a couple of miles from his son Timothy's home site near Dalton, Cass Co.

In a letter which Murry T. Davis wrote to his nephew Arthur Lee Barber and his wife Annie Lou in 1970, "Most of the dates you need happened when this country was very thinly settled, and there was hardly any towns, just mostly communities, where there was just a store, church, and a small school. Most incidents happened close to what is (still) Maud, Texas.... I know that they didn't keep any records at the time of grandfather's birth, for he was born back in the hills in the farmlands of Georgia.... The Davis forefathers came across in wagons and riverboat from Georgia and settled in Texas when it was still wild. You can still see the mounds where a big Indian Village was located. The mounds were built up around the wigwam (tents) to keep out the water when it rains, and the mounds are still plain to see."

William S. Davis and son William W. Davis joined the efforts of the Confederacy in Haralson Co., GA, created in 1856, and on the western border of Georgia adjacent to (and created from) Carroll Co. (and Polk Co.).

Davis, William T.- private July 13, 1861. Discharged at Lynchburg, Va. February 9,1862. [during a measles epidemic] in Company E.

19th Regiment Volunteer Infantry:

Originally known as the Second Regiment, Fourth Brigade, Georgia State Troops, the Nineteenth Georgia Infantry mustered into Confederate service in August 1861. W.W. Boyd was the regiment's first colonel. Sent to Lynchburg, Virginia, the unit suffered through a measles epidemic at that location which lowered its efficiency. The regiment was then transferred to Manassas Junction, where it remained until March 1862.

In the spring of 1862 the Nineteenth was sent to Yorktown, Virginia. It fought at West Point, Seven Pines, Mechanicsville, Gaines' Mill, Frazier's Farm, and Malvern Hill. Lieutenant Colonel Thomas C. Johnson, acting regimental commander, fell at Mechanicsville.

In August the regiment lost heavily at Cedar Mountain and Second Manassas, and the following month at Antietam it suffered casualties of more than 50%. At Fredericksburg in December 1862 the Nineteenth lost nearly 200 additional men. The unit was transferred in early 1863 from Archer's to Colquitt's Brigade, joining the other Georgia regiments in the latter unit. After Chancellorsville the Nineteenth went with the rest of the Brigade to North Carolina and then to Charleston.

In February 1864 the Nineteenth, now commanded by Colonel John H. Neal, was sent to defend Florida against the Union advance. At Olustee ninety-six more Georgians fell killed (6) or wounded (88). The regiment claimed to have "captured three (Union) guns and cassions early in the battle."

By May 1864 the well-travelled regiment found itself back in Virginia, fighting at Drewry's Bluff and Cold Harbor, before defending Petersburg during the rest of 1864-1865. The Nineteenth was ordered to North Carolina near the close of the war, where it surrendered.

Notes for Jonathan Granberry:

The Granberrys probably first met the Travises in Pitt County, NC, where Simeon Travis and his wife Mary Ann Stafford were residing temporarily. Both families moved on to Warren County, GA, and stayed theree for a number of years, then moved across Indian territory (Alabama) to Mississippi Territory. They settled for a time in Amite County, Mississippi, then moved up to Hinds County when it opened for settlement.

The part of the Granberry Family that went to Mississippi was the children of Moses and Susannah and Elizabeth. All three sons of Moses and Susannah Dykes Granberry moved together into Hinds County, MS, and their descendants in that county and Copiah County are numerous. They settled on land that had been owned by the Collins Family before they moved on to Jasper County, then to Louisiana and Texas.

Several of the children of Moses Granberry and Elizabeth Dulaney went to Mississippi with the Travis parents from Georgia. Jonathan and his sister Martha Jane each married Travis children, and moved into Hinds County and settled where the town of Learned is now located. Within a few years, they moved to Forrest County, MS near the Bowie River. Simeon Travis and Mary Ann Stafford stayed there and are buried in an old cemetery on the banks of the Bowie. Jonathan Granberry and his wife stayed with them, and the Granberry descendants in that part of Mississippi are numerous. His sister Martha and husband Ezekiel Travis moved on to Jasper County when it was opened for settlement in 1833, and remained there the rest of their lives.

One record says he died after 1850 in Forrest County, MS, while another gives an exact date in 1844 in Hinds County.

Simeon and Mary are buried near the Bowie River, about six miles west of Hattiesburg, Mississippi. One record says he died 10 Jan 1849. A US Land grant was issued to him on 1 Jan 1830 in Hinds Co.

Notes for Elizabeth Travis:

Elizabeth is shown in one report as the wife of Daniel M. Carter, who may have been born in 1824, but this is unlikely.

60. William Fielding Willoughby, born Bef. 1771 in England. He married 61. Margurite Bougouis Abt. 1791.

61. Margurite Bougouis, born Bef. 1777.

Notes for William Fielding Willoughby:

William Fielding Willoughby, born in England, was supposed to have been on his father's ship as a 17 yr. old stowaway that sailed from England & when they landed William jumped ship & ran away. He later married. Their son Rudolphus Willoughby was born ca 1790 in Maryland or Canada. He married in 1825 in Marion County, Mississippi.

One story, relayed by Deb Dillon Dillon8330@aol.com goes "William F's father owned a shipping fleet in England and that William F was the youngest of 5 or 6 sons. WF wanted to captain his own ship, but his mother threw a fit - she did not want all of her sons on the water, so he stowed away on one of his brother's ships. Supposedly the brother tried to "jail" him, but he hid in a barrel and was taken ashore somewhere around Boston. He escaped and hid from them, but never got to captain his ship, either!"

Memo: 4 generations

Notes for Margurite Bougouis:

or Marguerite Bougouis or Margureite Bougouis. Was she the widow Walker? The info below is not conclusive that this is the same couple.

Margureite Walker, a widow, married a William Willoughby in Dorchester Co., Maryland, in 1775. Could it be this couple? (thanks to Deb Dillon) One Willoughby family had been in Dorchester Co. for several generations.

Abstracts of the Balance Books of the Prerogative Court of Maryland

pg 74: William Walker, Dorchester Co., 9 Aug 1775 - Sureties: Nathan HARVEY, Richard HARVEY; Legatees: Peggy (youngest dau); Adm'x: Margaret Willoughby, wife of Mr. William Willoughby of Caroline Co.

Was Margaret Willoughby possibly widow of William Harvey (above) or perhaps his dau Margaret who was Walker's widow and who had remarried by this settlement?

63. Abigail Bobo, born Abt. 1771 in Union Dist., SC; died Abt. 1806 in Union Co., SC. She was the daughter of 126. Capt. Lewis Bobo and 127. Sarah Solomon.

Notes for John Cooper:

http://www2.arkansas.net/~bcooper2k/Family%20Tree's.htm

"JOHN COOPER was born about 1763 in Granville County, NC, and sometime after the American Revolution, moved with his family to Union District, SC. Some researchers have reported that John Cooper's brother, Elijah Harrison Cooper, moved to Union District at an earlier date along with his Uncle John Harrison and his family. John Cooper married about 1791 in Union District, SC, to Abigail Bobo, the daughter of Lewis Bobo and Sarah Solomon. In 1796, Lewis & Sarah Bobo conveyed a 100 acre tract to John Cooper for the consideration of 50 pounds Sterling. One of the witnesses to the deed was a Samuel Simpson. [Union Dist., SC Deed Book G, pages 287-289] Probably, shortly after that transaction, John Cooper, along with other families from Union District, moved to Kentucky.* John Cooper appears on the 1806, 1807 & 1808 Tax Lists for Livingston County, KY. John Cooper's daughter, Mary Rhodes Cooper, reported that she was married by James Hatters, a Minister of the Gospel, at Eddyville on April 23, 1808, to Benjamin Hammond. (Bounty Land Claim No. 263.434, dated September 15, 1856). Benjamin Hammond is also shown on the 1806, 1807 & 1808 Tax Lists for Livingston County. The original town of Eddyville, KY, was on the bank of the Cumberland River.

"In about 1810, John Cooper and his family moved to Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, where both he and Benjamin Hammond established land claims near the Louisiana-Mississippi border. In 1812, John Cooper established a 589 61/100 acre land claim in Section 65, T1S-R1E. The north line of Section 65 is on the southern boundary line of Wilkinson County, MS. Section 65 is also adjacent to Section 72, which was claimed by Benjamin Hammond in 1810. John Cooper's daughter, Sarah D. Cooper, married Samuel Simpson on March 15, 1814, in Wilkinson County, MS. While residing in Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, both Warren H. Cooper, son of John & Abigail Cooper, and Benjamin Hammond joined with the local militia and fought in the Battle of New Orleans.

"Sometime in 1815, the John Cooper family moved to Marion County, MS and settled near the present day town of Columbia, MS. On September 1, 1815, John Cooper and son, Warren Cooper, signed a Petition to Congress along with other inhabitants of the Mississippi Territory East of the Pearl River. On September 12, 1821, John Cooper acquired a claim of 230 25/100 acres of land in fractional Section 24, T4N-R13E, on the bank of the Pearl River, where he apparently lived for several years. The Benjamin Hammond family also moved to Marion County. Many of the descendants of the Hammond family still live in Marion County, MS.

"The last information available for Abigail Bobo Cooper was in 1824, when she appeared as a witness in the divorce of her daughter, Catherine Cooper Oliver, from Charles B. Oliver. On January 24, 1831, John Cooper made a gift of various household goods and livestock to his daughter, Catherine Cooper Willoughby, wife of Rudolphus Willoughby. [Marion County, MS, Deed Book B, Page 369] He may have been living with the Willoughby family at that time. In 1840, John Cooper probably was living with the Benjamin Hammond family. [1840 Census, Marion County, MS] In 1850, John Cooper, age 87, was living with his son, William D. Cooper. [1850 Census, Marion County, MS page 189 (B)] No information on John Cooper has been reported after that date.

"*The path of the Cooper family may have been similar to that of the George Gordon family detailed in the publication, The Gordon's of the Deep South, Ermine Northcutt Marshall, (1961), wherein at page 45 it is stated that the Gordon family departed from Union County, SC, in 1796 for Kentucky where George Gordon received two (2) land grants in Christian County. The part of Christian County where the Gordon's settled later became Livingston Co. Sometime before 1813, the George Gordon family moved from Kentucky to St. Helena Parish, LA."

Notes for William Brookshire II:

In some family trees this is William Brookshire I son of James Brookshire II.

Notes for Honour Burk:

William Burk lists son-in-law William Brookshire as his son-in-law. Honora / Honour is a family name.

Children of William Brookshire and Honour Burk are:

i. Mary 'Polly' Brookshire, born 07 Aug 1751; married William Gunter 1765; born 1751 in Edgecombe Co., NC.

96. Jonathon Cudd, born Bet. 1725 - 1730 in Prob. VA.

Notes for Jonathon Cudd:

Perhaps the common ancestor of the groups that resided in Union Co., SC and had Carter for first names.

Jonathan went to South Carolina from Virginia about 1752 and settled on Fanning Creek. He bought part of Abel Kendrick's grant. He sold his land in 1797 and went to kentucky.

Two (or more) families are attributed to this man. There were evidentally several Jonathan Cudds born during this century. It is very possible there are two men of different generations being improperly merged. The common ancestor may not have moved to Kentucky.

Children of Jonathon Cudd are:

i. Jonathan Carter Cudd, born 1748; died 1837 in Union Co., SC; married Mary Goodloe; born Aft. 1748; died 1840 in Union Co., SC.

Notes for Jonathan Carter Cudd:

Jonathon Cudd came to S.C. from virginia about 1752 and settled on Fanning Creek. He bought part of Abel Kendrick's grant. His children are Jonathon Carter, John, and Zachariah that are in the 1790 census. He sold his land in 1797 and went to Kentucky.

100. <Unknown> Ison, born Bef. 1750. He was the son of 200. James Ison and 201. Jane Harrison.

Notes for <Unknown> Ison:

One of the sons of James Ison may be the father of Jacob & Frederick, as each was in Union Co., SC.

Possibly a descendant of Gideon Ison, whose descendants were also in Union Co., SC:

Descendants of Sir Gideon Ison

1 .....Gideon Ison b: Bet. 1635 - 1650 Shropshire, England d: 24 Dec 1701

There was one Gidea Idson buried at Worthen, Shropshire on 24 Dec 1701. He had not been knighted and there are evidently no good records to confirm his relationship to the American Isons. For more, see the genforum.com message board.

105. Rachel Ratcliff, born Abt. 1725 in Anderbies Creek, Talbot, MD; died in SC. She was the daughter of 210. Samuel Ratcliff and 211. Rachel Warner.

Notes for James Goodson:

James Goodson is sometimes identified as the son of William Goodson of Isle of Wight Co., VA, but the evidence to support this has not been identified.

Two descendants on different lines, born in the mid-late 1800's, are named James Elbert Goodson. That coincidence seems to indicate either (a) a prominent ancestor anmes James Elbert, (b) a politician or minister with that name, or (c) one of these men's names are shown wrong, or (d) their ancestries are closer than indicated here.

Notes for Rachel Ratcliff:

See: http://www.gate.net/~sigmar/ratcliff/sam.html (April, 2002)

SAMUEL RATCLIFF SR., SAMUEL RATCLIFF JR., JAMES RATCLIFF and RICHARD RATCLIFF are all documented in early Craven County, South Carolina before 1769. They lived on the west side of Lynches Creek in that area which was later Sumter County and cut into the formation of present day Lee County, SC. Research also indicates that SAMUEL RATCLIFF SR. had at least two daughters. The first daughter, who had passed away by c1756, had married Jethro Butler. The second daughter RACHEL RATCLIFF had first married James? Goodson, and after his death she married her deceased sister's widower Jethro Butler. RACHEL RATCLIFF GOODSON had land on Lynches Creek next door to her father SAMUEL RATCLIFF SR. in South Carolina. Many old family letters also confirm the relationships.

26 July 1998: Rachel Ratcliff was named as administrator of estate of her second husband, Jethro Butler who died 1761, shortly after they were married in 1759, as proved by Duplin County, NC Estate Records. The Will of Jethro Butler is no longer extant. Her Mark was listed as the number [ 6 ] as it appears on the estate inventory, dated 10 August 1761.

Children of James Goodson and Rachel Ratcliff are:

i. William Goodson, born Aft. 1750; died 04 Dec 1834 in Raymond, Hinds Co., MS; married (1) <Unknown> Abt. 1788 in Charleston Dist., SC; married (2) Elizabeth Noble 21 Apr 1825 in Lawrence Co., MS; born Aft. 1790.

Notes for William Goodson:

The right age to have been the William Goodson, soldier in the War of 1812. He and his brothers may have been born in either Duplin Co., NC or on Lynches Creek, Craven Co., SC.

ii. Benjamin Goodson, born Abt. 1750 in Poss. Lincoln Co., NC; died 26 May 1851 in Homer, Claiborne, LA; married (1) Elizabeth <Unknown> Bet. 1785 - 1786 in near Four Hole Swamp, Charleston Dist., SC; born Abt. 1764 in Charleston Dist., SC; died Aft. 20 Dec 1806 in Wilkinson Co., GA; married (2) Emily Dorothy Mills 21 Mar 1809 in Wilkinson Co., GA; born 24 Dec 1785 in SC.

Notes for Benjamin Goodson:

From a Ratliff site:

Benjamin Goodson, in his application for a pension, stated that "I was born in 1750 or 1752 on Big Lynches Creek 30 miles below Campden." (Camden, in South Carolina) This was the location of the Ratcliff and Goodson land grants. John Ratcliff signed an affidavit in Mississippi affirming that Benjamin Goodson had served in the Revolutionary War. This document found in the Rev. War Pension papers of Benj. Goodson.

He was a Methodist minister for over 60 years, and also farmed.

A Bible record for Benjamin has this info:

The record shows: Elizabeth Goodson b:1789, Rhoda Goodson b:1790, ____? b:1792, ____? b:1795, ____? b:1797, then Mary b:1804, Rebecca b:1810, William Wesley b:1812, Joshua b:1813, Caleb b:1816, Gabriel b:1818, Matilda b:1820, Rachel b:1822, Joseph b:1825, John b:1826, Cascandra? b:1830. that David m: Elizabeth Bell, and Rhode m: John Slaughter. Aaron, Moses and a Benjamin Jr. have those ?dates.

Taken from "Historic Claiborne "69" page 7 & 8, provided by Bruce Stewart, a Goodson descendant. " Benjamine Goodson, Revolutionary War soldier was born 1750 about 30 miles

below Compden (Camden?) on Lynches Creek, S.C.

He first served in the war as a substitute for Jesse Merun and was captured when Charleston, South Carolina fell to the British. He was placed in prison and when released, joined the Army under Gen Francis Marion (The Swamp Fox) with whom he served to the end of the war. He was engaged in the Battle against the Tories on Little Pee Dee River near Smith's Mill, against the British on the Big Santee

River in south Carolina and in most all the expeditions and marches by General Marion from the time he entered the Army until discharged.

Soon after the close of of the war Benjamine Goodson went to the state of Georgia for a few years, then removed to Franklin Co., Miss. He was married March 21, 1809 to Dorothy ? (her last name and location not found).

John Ratcliff, James Cain, and John Hughes, a clergyman, swore to a character reference for Benjamine Goodson , a minister, when he applied for a soldier's pension in 1831. The pension was granted in the amount of $60.00 per year and paid by the United States agencies at Natchez and Jackson, Mississippi.

About 1835 Benjamine Goodson and his family came to Claiborne Parish and entered land in Township 21, Range 6. He died May 26, 1851 being a little over one hundred years old, survived by his wife Dorothy and possibly descendants. In 1854, Dorothy Goodson applied for Bounty Land in Claiborne Parish due her as the widow of a Revolutionary War soldier."

113. Mary Manning, born Abt. 1722 in prob. Norfolk Co., VA; died Abt. 1764 in prob. Norfolk Co., VA. She was the daughter of 226. Thomas Manning and 227. Sarah Taylor.

Notes for James Granberry:

James Granberry was the oldest child of Moses and Elizabeth. The name Loammi appears in grandchildren, including a son of George, and grandchildren of Moses. Among the possibilities are that the latter were named for the former, or that this is a family name in the Manning family.

Children of James Granberry and Mary Manning are:

i. George Granberry, born Bef. 1752 in Norfolk Co., VA; died 1805 in Jefferson Co., GA; married Sarah Jackson.

Notes for George Granberry:

George Granberry and one son, Loammi, moved to Hinds County, MS and settled in the same area as his brother's children. George later moved to Copiah County, MS.

George married twice, and the first wife's name is not known. Was she the mother of any of the children? Mose of George and Sarah's children moved into Mississippi later than his brother Moses's children did; there is no record of George's descendants prior to 1830. Also, mosts of them later moved on to Texas, after living in Madison, Rankin, Hinds or Covington Counties at different times during their migration. At least one of George's children stayed in North Carolina, and at least one of them stayed in Georgia.

Notes for William Mills Travis:

He has not been proven to be the son of Dr. Edward Travis of Bath Co., NC, who may have emigrated from Ireland. Still, many identify his birthplace as Bath, Beaufort Co., NC. He may have been born in Ireland or Maryland. He may have been Edward's grandson, the son of Thomas Travis, who died in 1766 in Pitt Co., NC. Thomas's wife was Sarah Pylant.

William Travis received land grants in NC and in GA. He held several official positions in NC from 1755-1758, and did Colonial service at the Battle of Alamance serving in Capt. William Burney's Company in Gov. Tryon's campaign against the insurgents.

He and his brother were on the 1762 tax list of Pitt Co., NC.

Travis, Thomas | | 1 male 16+ ; 3 slaves | 1762 Pitt tax list

Travis, William | | 1 male 16+ | 1762 Pitt tax list

He was on the Committee to raise funds for the Patriots of Boston on 3 Nov 1774. On 1 Jul 1775 he was third on the list of signers of the declaration pledging support of Congress against Great Britain. He was a member of the Committee of Safety in 1774-75, and was Justice of the Peace for Pitt Co., NC in 1776.

He was captured by the British in service for the new country on 29 July 1781. He received a voucher on 3 Aug 1784, now filed in Raleigh.

In 1784, William Travis moved his family to Richmond Co., GA where he was appointed Justice of the Peace. He later moved to Warren Co., GA and bought land. A bronze tablet at the courthouse of Warrenton, GA commemorates his service in the Revolutionary War.

Thanks to Travis - Savannah GA.

"William Stafford died sometime after 1780 and his widow beyond a doubt married Jacob Huffman/ Hoffman. In an 1808 deed between Henry Zouk and Frederick Buntz, it is mentioned that part of the land being sold was 200 acres conveyed by Jacob Huffman and Ann Mary, his wife, to Abraham Stafford. In this and other deeds, Abraham’s wife is shown to be Elizabeth. Earlier, in 1801, Jacob Hoffman sold 400 acres to Abraham Stafford, Ann Mary Hoffman, witnessed this transaction and part of the land was bounded by Felix Geiger’s land. It’s interesting to note that in that same year, Thomas Peter Stafford and his wife, Marie, sold land he had inherited from his father, John, to Felix Geiger. From this we know that the Stafford, Hoffman and Geiger families were neighbors.

"In 1812, Jacob Huffman/Hoffman died. Simeon Travis was granted citation for letter of administration on the estate. The widow was listed as "Mary Huffman".

"In 1815, Felix Geiger, Abraham Geiger, Mary Hoffman and Cornelius Geiger, heirs of Ulrick Kegar (or Geiger) sold to their bother, John Geiger, also an heir of Ulrick Kegar 1/5 of 60 acres granted to their father in 1767. On the same day, the four children of Ulrich Geiger who still held title to their father’s land as tenants-in-common sold their 4/5 interest to Christopher Frederick Bunce. Obviously John wanted to keep his portion of their father’s land.

"It is interesting to note that these transactions took place in 1815 and Jacob Hoffman died in 1812. All of the children, except John Geiger and Mary Hoffman, who sold land to Bunce had a spouse who signed also. Even though this was her father’s land, her husband would have had to have signed the deed with her. Thus, we can safely say that she was a widow and very likely the widow of Jacob Hoffman."

Notes for William Cooper:

http://www2.arkansas.net/~bcooper2k/Family%20Tree's.htm

"The first appearance for William Cooper, husband of Mary Harrison, in Granville County, NC, was the acquisition of a tract of land on Nutbush Creek in 1765. William Cooper owned property on Nutbush Creek from October 19, 1765 until January 17, 1775. [Granville County Deed Records] William reported that "when Daniel Boone was exploring Kentucky he was with him...when the Kentucky lines were marked out, he was one of the number, though his name is spelt Cook." [J. W. Cooper letter of August 14, 1856, to son (William King Cooper)] Some historical publications identify a William Cook or a William Coole with Daniel Boone in 1769, when D. Boone made his first trip to KY with John Findley and others. William Cooper, husband of Mary Harrison, probably was the William Cooper who planted the first corn crop in the Cloverbottom on Otter Creek, near Fort Boonesboro, KY, in 1775 or 1776. In 1780 and 1781, that William Cooper was granted title to three (3) tracts totaling 2,400 acres on the left hand fork of Otter Creek. Otter Creek is a tributary of the Kentucky River and lies in present day Madison County, KY, near the town of Richmond. William Cooper claimed he fought at the battle of Guilford Courthouse, March 15, 1781 and in other revolutionary war battles. [Letter of Aug. 14, 1856] One researcher has reported that when the James Harrison family moved to SC after the Revolutionary War, William Cooper and Mary 'Polly' Harrison Cooper moved with them to the Harrison plantation at Fairforest and continued to live there until Harrison sold the plantation in 1790."

His ancestry appears speculative.

Children of William Cooper and Mary Harrison are:

62 i. John Cooper, born Abt. 1763 in Granville Co., NC; died 1850 in MS; married Abigail Bobo 1791 in Union Dist., SC.

ii. Rev. William King Cooper, born 1756; died 25 Jun 1830 in Mitchell Township, St. Francis, AR.

Lewis' land in Union County, granted to him in 1772, was bounded by the Tyger River on the North and encompassed 300 acres. In 1795 he gave his son Kindred a parcel on the South end of this property as a wedding present. On this land Kindred built his home which is still standing today (1999) It is now known as the Murphy - Bobo House and has been recently renovated (1980-1990) and identifies the approximate Southern boundary of Lewis' original homestead. About 100 yards North of the Murphy - Bobo House is what remains of a burial ground of considerable age. The stones are mostly field stones but at least one could be identified as a man made stone. and all were covered by decades of dead leaves, dirt and debris. In 1994 several Bobo cousins visited the area and, after some digging, came to the conclusion that this was indeed a cemetery and determined that there were about 20 burial plots. It is presumed that Lewis is buried here as well as some of his kin. (from the original records for the house in the possesion of Richard Campbell)

166. William Sumpter, born Abt. 1700. He married 167. Elizabeth <Unknown> 18 Jun 1728 in Hanover Co., VA.

167. Elizabeth <Unknown>, died in VA.

Notes for William Sumpter:

Harold E. Sumpter, Sumpter, A Branch of the Family Tree (Turney, Mo.), 1, "Our ancestor, William Thomas Sumpter, born in 1692 in Histon, Cambridge County, England, came to America and the Colony of Virginia in the early 1700s. Soon after arriving in this country, he became acquainted with a widow, Elizabeth Patience Iveson. They fell in love and later married on the 18th of June, 1728 in Hanover County, Virginia."

However, Elizabeth and her husband William died in Cambridge, likely having never come to America. Another William and Elizabeth may have been the parents of the General and his siblings. It makes one wonder if the marriage date & place are reliable.

Memo: 4 generations

Notes for Elizabeth <Unknown>:

Elizabeth is said to have died at age 111 in Virginia. Not to be confused with Elizabeth, widow of Iveson, who died in Histon, Cambridge, England shortly after her husband, William Sumpter.

'Patience was a homemaker and lived in Albemarle County, Virginia. She was married first to John Franklin. By her marriage to John, Patience had four children. By her second marriage to James Sudderth she had five children. James Suddarth mentions his wife Patience in his will. Patience served as a mid-wife among the settlers as did her mother.

ii. Capt. William Sumpter, born 29 Oct 1731 in VA; died 1819 in NC; married Judith Randall 1754 in Albemarle Co., VA; died Aft. 1788.

Notes for Capt. William Sumpter:

From the book "Sumpter - A Branch of the Family Tree" by Harold E. Sumpter

'William was married to Judith Randall and became a farmer and land owner in Virginia. He made several land purchases after his father's death. After a period of time his land holdings were in the hundreds of acres. Deciding to go south he sold his land holdings in Virginia and moved to Burke County, North Carolina, in 1779. They lived near the Catawba River. Today the city of Morgantown is the county seat of Burke County and is located on the river. During the American Revolution William served as captain in the army fighting out of the state of North Carolina. He commanded a company of troops in Burke County under Colonel James Richards.

William and his wife, Judith Randall, had nine children, all born in Albemarle County, Virginia. William died in 1819.'

iii. John Sumpter, born Abt. 1733 in Hanover Co., VA; died Abt. 1787 in Caldwell Co., NC; married Catherine Van Pelt 1762 in VA; born Abt. 1737 in VA; died Aft. 1809 in Burke Co., NC.

Notes for John Sumpter:

From the book "Sumpter - A Branch of the Family Tree" by Harold E. Sumpter

'John ... was also a farmer and lived in Albemarle County, Virginia. There has been considerable controversy as to the birth of John. Some believe that Gen. Thomas was older but I am led to believe that John was older. According to the will of William, his sons William and John were the only children old enough to be named in William's will. Evidently the other children were not of age to be named in the will.'

'A short time after his father's death John purchased 250 acres on September 10, 1775. (Deed Book 3, p. 673). In 1777 John purchased 101 acres in Albemarle County near Miney Mountain from his brother, William and wife, Judith. In 1780 John Sumpter and wife Catherine, sold their properties and followed William to Burke County, North Carolina.

In 1762 John's land grants in Albemarle County, Virginia exceeded a thousand acres. They moved to Halifax County, Virginia, and then to Burke County, NC. According to records documented in the D. A. R.s John SUmpter served in the war of the Revolution. He was a private in the Halifax County Militia in Virginia. After his move to North Carolina, he was appointed rank of Captain in the Burke County Militia. (Proof of service: 1780 Index of Revolution Soldiers of Virginia Service, 9th Virginia Regement Halifax County Militia).

John and Catherine had a family of nine children. Since John was not listed in the Burke County census after 1780, it is believed he died about 1787-1788 in Burke County.'

iv. Gen. Thomas Sumter, born 14 Aug 1734 in Hanover Co., VA; died 01 Jun 1832 in Bradford Springs, SC; married Mary Cantey Jameson Bet. 1765 - 1767; born Aft. 1735.

Notes for Gen. Thomas Sumter:

http://www.webkeeper.com/cato/UShis.html is the source of this:

The following account of Major General Thomas Sumter, is abridged from a memoir written by William Gilmore Sims, Esq.:

Thomas Sumter, after whom this division of the State was named, was born in Virginia, in the year 1734. When a boy, he went as a volunteer against the French and Indians, in the "old French war." Not long after Braddock's defeat he came to South Carolina, where he was engaged in active service against the Indians. Known to be a warm friend to the principles of those who were opposed to the usurpations of Great Britain, as early as March, 1776, he was appointed by the Provisional Congress, Lieutenant Colonel of the 2d regiment of riflemen, and was engaged in watching the outbreaks of the disaffected on the frontier, and the hostile red men. After the fall of Charleston, Sumter retired to the swamps of the Santee; but he soon emerged from his hiding place, went to North Carolina to obtain recruits, and stopped at a place known as the "Gillespie Settlement." Of the Gillespie family were numerous brothers, all of whom were famous cock-fighters. They were content with the conflicts of the barn-yard, having in their possession, amongst other famous fighting birds, a blue hen of the game species, whose progeny were particularly distinguished for their martial qualities. Of one of these chickens, called Tuck, there is quite a biography. His reputation was extended far and wide, from mountain to mountain. He was never known to refuse a fight, or to lose a battle. At one time Sumter suddenly appeared at the cockpit and surprised the Gillespies at their usual occupation, and in abrupt language called upon them to leave the cockpit, and go with him, where he would teach them how to fight with men. They took him at his word. "Tuck for ever," was the cry of the Gillespies. "He is one of the Blue Hen's chickens." The sobriquet stuck to him always after; and the eagerness with which he sought his enemies on all occasions amply justified in the opinion of his followers the name of the Game Cock. In raising recruits our hero was successful, and on the 12th of July, 1780, he gave the Gillespies the amusement he had promised them, by suddenly attacking a body of Tories, and completely defeating them. After this affair Sumter had the pleasure of receiving from Governor Rutledge, a commission as a Brigadier in the service of the State, and was ordered to recover a certain portion of the country from the power of the enemy. On the 30th of July, 1780, he advanced upon the British post at Rocky Mount; but for want of artillery, he was compelled to abandon the attack. Hanging Rock next attracted the notice of Sumter. This was garrisoned by a force of 500 men; and although in the battle fought here he could not be said to have obtained a complete victory, yet it is acknowledged by the enemy, that they got the worst of the battle. About August of the same year, he surprised the British near Carey's fort. Having taken the fort; stores and troops, he commenced a retreat; but Tarlton overtook him two days after, at Fishing creek. Burdened with his baggage and his prisoners, 300 in number, his movements were necessarily slower than those of the light armed troops which Tarlton commanded. The camp of Sumter was surprised; his troops were dispersed, the prisoners recaptured, and Sumter again a fugitive. Again he made his way into North Carolina, and after raising a force, he took the field and occupied a post at the Fish Dam ford. Here he was attacked by Col. Wemyss; but so gallantly did Sumter defend his position, that the British fled, leaving their commander in the hands of the Americans. Col. Wemyss had rendered himself very obnoxious to the Americans by his cruelties. In addition to many offences of the same character, a memorandum of the houses and estates he was yet to destroy was found upon his person. This was shown to Sumter, but he, with the magnanimity becoming a hero, threw the paper into the fire, and would permit no injury to be inflicted upon the British officer. After this action, he crossed Broad river, and being joined by an additional force, he prepared to attempt the British post at Ninety-Six; but hearing of the approach of Tarlton, he changed his movements, and took up his position at the house of Blackstock, where he was attacked by the British; but a well directed fire from the Americans forced him to give up the assault. In this engagement 192 of the enemy were left on the field, of whom 92 were slain, and the rest wounded. The loss of the americans was almost nominal. General Sumter received a ball through the breast near the shoulder, which for a long time rendered him unfit for service. Congress acknowledged his services by a vote of thanks.

In the early part of 1781, he again took the field, and made a rapid movement towards Fort Granby, and succeeded in destroying its magazines, and the very next day he surprised an escort convoying wagons of stores from Charleston to Camden, slew thirteen of the escort, and made sixty-six prisoners. Not long after this he was attacked by Major Fraser, near Camden; but that officer got the worst in the conflict, making off with the loss of twenty men. Receiving a letter from General Greene, requesting him to do all in his power towards breaking up the British communication, Sumter was already in the field, sweeping the county lying between the Broad, Saluda, and Wateree rivers. On the 10 th of May, he took the British post, at Orangeburgh, with its garrison, consisting of 100 men, and all its stores. About this time Gen. Sumter, embroiled in a dispute with Col. Lee, sent his commission to Gen. Greene, whom he thought improperly partial to Lee. This was returned with many expressions of kindness and compliment on the part of Gen. Greene; and Sumter, cheerfully yielding his private grievances to his sense of patriotism, resumed his responsibilities; but in a short time, fatigue and wounds demanded that he should have a respite from toils, and accordingly he repaired to the mountains, for the purpose of recruiting his health; and when he was able to resume the field, the war was at an end. He survived long after the independence of his country was established. For many years he was a member of Congress, first as a Representative, and afterwards as a Senator. He lived to a mature old age, honoured to the last, and died on the 1st of June, 1832, at his residence, near Bradford Springs, South Carolina, in the ninety-eighth year of his age.

In the name of God Amen, James Burk in the County of Surry and the State of North Carolina, Planter, being in a low state of health and weak of body, but of good, perfect and sound mind and memory, knowing the mortality of my body and it is appointed for all to died.

And as touching such Wordly Goods wherewith God has been pleased to bless me with in my life time, I will and dispose in the following manner and form.

Inprimis: I give, leave and bequeath unto my beloved wife Lucretia Burk the whole and sole management, possession , rights and profits of all my estate both real and personal to be and remain in her care during her life at the end of which all remaining, after paying such legacies as I shall hereafter give, to be all and every Article sold at Auction and equally divided amongst all my children Viz. Between Mary Murphew, Sarah Wilson, Joseph Burk, Neomi Pepper.

They resided in the Salem-Stauton area of Virginia. Burke Garden in Tazewell County, VA is named for James Burk.

(Thanks to: The Quaker Yeoman Vol. 24 Num 1 Page 2; author Helen Ryerson of Tuscaloosa, AL.)

"When Limerick native James Burk first found his garden in 1748, it had been without inhabitants for at least 50 years - perhaps as much as 250 years. The Indians who had previously inhabited the garden were gone; the most popular theory is that disease had killed them. Burk had followed a wounded elk into the garden. At the time, he lived in the area of Wytheville, Va. He returned to live in the Garden from 1752-56. ... Burk's family came to Philadelphia; there are records to show that he married his first wife, Mary 'Polly' Bane, in Chester County, Pa. in 1730. Burk's trip from Limerick, in the absence of any sizeable Irish migration at the time, can probably be explained by religion :..., Burk was a Quaker. ... He remarried, ... a widow in Wytheville - Lucretia Rees Griffith. Burk died in 1783 after moving on down the Appalachian chain to North Carolina."

Children of James Burk and Mary Bane are:

i. Mary Burk, born 1732 in Fincastle, Botetourt, VA; married Joseph Morphew 09 Oct 1749 in Montgomery Co., VA; born 1718 in Suffolk, England; died 1788 in Surry Co., NC.

ii. James Burk, Jr., born Abt. 1733; died 28 Oct 1783 in In Battle; married Amey <Unknown> Abt. 1752; born in of Surry Co., VA.

Notes for James Burk, Jr.:

"James Burk, Jr. was killed in battle in 1776. He was in N. Car. militia and a Patriot, which may be why he was [practically disinherited] by his father. James Jr.'s son John, age 16, was with his father at battlefield death. John later joined the Continental Army & fought at Eutaw Springs according to his pension papers."

Mrs. Frank Ryerson of Tuscaloosa, AL, descendant of this line.

James Burk, Jr. was killed while serving in the Wilkes County NC militia in Aug 1776 according to his son John's Rev War 1832 soldier's pension application in Wayne County, Indiana. James had enlisted himself and John (then 15) in the militia for a 3 month tour beginning in Mar 1776. James was an ensign under Capt. Jesse Walton. James gave John a discharge after the 3 months, but appears to have continued his service and died in Aug 1776. John remained with his family until they moved to "the West" (Washington County NC, which became Washington County TN). John then rejoined the militia, serving for 3-4 tours of duty of 10-30 each, served a 3 month tour in SC and was at the Battle of Eutaw Springs under General Green, married in 1781 to Alcy Robinson Sebastian, was drafted for a short tour a little later, then hired a substitute when he was drafted for an 18 month tour. His mother Alcy was the executor of her first husband's estate and is named in Rowan County NC documents, presumbably because they had property there even though James and John had joined the militia while residing in Wilkes County NC. James Burk's widow Amey married Samuel Tate between 1777 and 1779 and Samuel Tate is named in Rowan County NC court filings on James Burk Jr's estate in 1786 as "executor in right of his wife".

Notes for Amey <Unknown>:

Amey married 2nd Samuel Tate.

iii. Sarah Rebecca Burke, born Bet. 1734 - 1735 in Ireland; married Capt. Samuel Wilson 1753 in Bedford Co., VA; born 1733 in VA; died 10 Oct 1774 in Battle of Point Pleasant, Mason Co., VA.

209. Mary <Unknown>

Notes for William Goodson:

Children of William Goodson and Mary <Unknown> are:

i. <Unknown> Goodson, born Bet. 1720 - 1738.

Notes for <Unknown> Goodson:

Several men named James Goodson and Arthur Goodson in SC may come from the same Isle of Wight Co., VA family, though no link beyond common first names has been found.

ii. <Unknown> Goodson, born Bet. 1726 - 1745.

Notes for <Unknown> Goodson:

This speculative link has not been the subject of enough research. Another James Goodson and a Thomas Goodson whose descendants intermarried with descendants of James Jr. are likely very closely related.

Notes for Dr. Edward Travis:

Dr. Edward Travis was a physician residing in Bathtown, Beaufort Co., NC, then the capitol of the state. He owned a lot of land around this area. His will was dated 30 Dec 1739 and was probated Dec. 1740 in the Court Parish of St. Thomas - and is reported in Grimes "Abstract of North Carolina Wills."

"Dr. Edward was very likely the son of Daniel and Susannah Travis" though few records exist and none support that statement. Geography is the only common link. Thanks to John H. Smallwood, Jr.

He is thought by some to have been born in Ireland. His ancestry is still speculative, based on circumstantial evidence.

The link claimed by Gen. William Barrett Travis is not accurate, but is likely a close family member.

Thought by some to be the common ancestor of William Barrett Travis, who died at the Alamo on 6 Mar 1836, and our branch [though I have detached him and have him on a separate line, which also emigrated from Ireland]. Two different families claim to be from "John the brother of William Mills Travis" and one is William Barrett Travis's.

Children of Edward Travis and Mary Mills are:

116 i. William Mills Travis, born 01 Apr 1728; died 26 Apr 1805 in Warren Co., GA; married Abigail Denmark 27 May 1752 in Hyde Co., NC.

ii. Thomas Travis, born in NC.

Notes for Thomas Travis:

Pitt County, NC records show that Thomas Travis died there in 1766. His widow was Sarah (nee' Pylant) and later his son, Edward, sold his land to another son, Thomas. Thomas Sr. died intestate and the law of primogeniture was in effect. Edward, his eldest son, inherited the land. He then sold some to the next son, Thomas.

iii. Mary Travis, born in NC.

 

234. William Batchelor Denmark, born 1708 in prob. VA; died 1752 in Hyde Co., NC. He was the son of 468. Francis Denmark. He married 235. Mourning <Unknown> 1730 in Bathtown, Hyde, NC.

235. Mourning <Unknown>, born Abt. 1710 in Hyde Co., NC; died 1751 in Hyde Co., NC.

Notes for William Batchelor Denmark:

Hyde Co., NC is now known as Beaufort Co., NC. He was blacksmith between 1734 and 1750 in Woodstock. He was involved in a land sale which includes the only mention of his wife Mourning in 1750 in Woodstock. One LDS submitter suggests that his father was John Denmark, born England.

Children of William Denmark and Mourning <Unknown> are:

117 i. Abigail Denmark, born 29 Sep 1731 in Hyde Co., NC; died 22 Oct 1812 in Warren Co., GA; married William Mills Travis 27 May 1752 in Hyde Co., NC.

237. Martha <Unknown>, born Bef. 1729; died in Screven Co., GA.

Notes for Joshua Stafford:

Revolutionary Soldier moved his family to Effingham county, GA from Barnwell, SC in 1790, the latter being cut into Screven county when that county was formed in 1793. Thanks to Jamie Oldham.

"It appears that a generation is missing" according to her source materials.

From "Pioneers of Wiregrass Georgia", vol. 8 - 1988:

"Joshua Stafford was born about 1725 in Beaufort County, North Carolina, a son of John Stafford and his wife, Ann Wyatt (dau. of John Wyatt of Virginia). He was married twice, but all of the children were born by his first wife, Martha (maiden name unknown). She died in 1793 in Screven County, Georgia, and on August 2, 1794 in Screven County, he married Mrs. Mary Lane, widow of Thomas Lane of that county. The known children of Joshua and Martha Stafford were:

(lists Joshua Jr. who married Margaret Ironmonger, but he was a nephew)

Information about the Geiger family extracted from:

http://www.websitewiz.com/genealogy/bibles/zgieger.htm

"Zachariah Gieger Bible, 1756-1871, of Georgia and Southern Mississippi, with Family Information

The Bible was originally owned by Zachariah Gieger of Collins, Covington Co., MS, and was published in 1854. A copy of the Bible record was given to the Mississippi Genealogical Society in 1955. At that time the Bible was owned by Nell Welch Vignes, great-granddaughter of Zachariah Gieger.

The Bible record appeared in the Mississippi Genealogical Society's publication, Cemetery and Bible Records, Vol. II., p.77-8."

"Geiger," "Gieger," and "Gyger" were used interchangeably, and the German/Swiss pronunciation is "GEE-ger."

This family descends from the Lutheran Geigers who arrived in Charleston, SC in 1737 on The Prince of Wales. The Geigers lived in St. Gallen canton, which was an autonomous state of the Holy Roman Empire until 1803. This area is now Switzerland. The Geigers settled in Saxa-Gotha Township, SC. In 1742, when a group petitioned the Lutheran Church in Zurich, Switzerland for gifts of Bibles, prayer books and church song books, six South Carolina Geigers signed the petition: Herman, Henry, Abraham, Jacob, John, and John Jacob Gieger. This line descends from Abraham Geiger.

The Gieger family moved from Bryan Co., and Effingham Co., Georgia to Mississippi and lived near Collins, MS. Zachariah was the s/o Jesse Geiger and Tabitha Martin Geiger (see below). Jesse Geiger was the s/o Abraham Geiger (b 1761 GA) and March _____ (possibly Martin) Geiger and grandson of Ulrich Geiger (b 1730/40) who married Appolina _____. "

Hans Ulrich Geiger received 300 acres of land in St. Philip Parish, granted to Ulrick Kegar on 2 Jun 1767. Grant Book F, Page 270. It was bounded on the northeast by the Great Ogeechee River, southeast by Frederick Resta, and on every other side by vacant land. From "English Crown Grants in St. Philip Parish, Georgia 1755-1775"

From the 1 Jul 1766 Colonial GA Council Journal at Savannah:

"Read a petition of Ulric Kegar setting forth that he was at present an Inhabitant of South Carolina but proposed immediately to remove into this Province with his family being a Wife, four children and one Negrao in order to settle and cultivate land..."

Thanks to John Hysler for the following:

" The son of Abraham and Catharina, Hans Ulrich Geiger, was born in 1730. Ulrich was married to Apolina, though we do not know her family name. In 1737, the Geiger family arrived in South Carolina. The South Carolina Gazette, in an article dated Feb. 5, 1737, notes the arrival of twelve ships, among them "Capt. Dunbarr from Rotterdam with above 200 Switzers out of the Canton of Tockenburgh, who are come to settle a township on the Savanna River called New Windsor. A diary by one John Tobler from Appenzall, Switzerland, notes that Abraham, Hans Jacob and Herman Geiger were passengers. It records a dispute between Tobler and the Geigers. Tobler wished to settle in New Windsor, the Geigers wished to go elsewhere. On Feb. 19, 1737, the Geigers left for Fredericksburg on the Wateree River; John Tobler left for New Windsor. The Geigers all received grants in the Saxe Gotha area of South Carolina, receiving grants on the south side of the Congaree River in 1742.

While in South Carolina, the Geigers were apparently caught up in the "Weber Heresy." Around 1760, Jacob Weber, a Swiss immigrant then living near the Saluda River, claimed to be God the Father. His closest followers included his wife, Hannah (the Virgin Mary), Jacob Burghart and John Geiger, Ulrich's brother. Webees two followers became the Holy Ghost and Christ. Another individual (called in various accounts Peter Schmidt or George Smithpeter) became Satan. Satan was cruelly murdered by the other members of the sect. Weber, his wife, Hannah, John Geiger and Jacob Burghart were convicted of the murder and sentenced to be executed. Only Jacob Weber was actually executed. John Geiger was banished.

John moved to Georgia. Whether Abraham and Ulrich were banished as well, whether they decided to accompany John in his banishment or whether they were simply dissatisfied with South Carolina, they moved to Georgia along with John, where they resided in Bryan County. The move seems to have taken place in 1767. Records in the Colonial Georgia Council Journal at Savannah for July 1, 1766: "read a petition of Ulric Kegar setting forth that he was presently an Inhabitant of South Carolina but proposed immediately to remove into this Province with his family being a wife, four children and one negro in order to settle and cultivate land." He received a grant of 300 acres on the Great Ogechee River in St. Philip's parish in June 2, 1767. Abraham died in 1777. Herman remained in Saxe Gotha, where he became well known as an Indian trader prior to his death in 1751.

Ulrich Geiger's Revolutionary War Military Service:

Huxford and Gnann indicate that Ulrich was a revolutionary war soldier. Huxford states the fact simply that he "was a Revolutionary soldier." These references are probably incorrect interpretations of a somewhat cryptic reference found elsewhere. A monograph by one Chubb Geiger entitled, The Inlanders.- Geiger contains the following brief reference: " Part of an old family talke...'Ulrich died of wounds received while fighting.' The year 1777 could mean he served in Indian foreys [sic] or the Revolution." The Geiger monograph has proved erroneous in a number of other respects, however, and this reference is not documented. At any rate, primary documentation of Ulrich's service, if any, has not been obtained as of this time. It is probable that, if Ulrich fought in the Revolutionary War at all, he was a loyalist, fighting on the side of the British. Many of the recent immigrants, having been granted land and, indeed, a new life by the King of England, were loyalists in gratitude. Records show that many other Geigers, close relatives to Ulrich, were loyalists. For example, in 1779, Abraham Geiger was a Corporal in Captain Martin Livingston's Company, S.C. Royalists, in Savannah. John Jacob Geiger was an Ensign in Colonel John Fisher's Regiment in 1781; Jacob Geiger was a private in Capt. John Bond Randall's Georgia Loyalists. In 1782 Abraham, John and Felix were fined for their participation as Loyalists, then restored to citizenship. No reference to Ulrich himself, either as a loyalist or a patriot, has been found. "

Notes for Ann Mary Magdelene <Unknown>:

Mary Stafford, widow, gave personal belongings to her mother, Anne Mary Magdalene Geiger.

Her name is sometimes shown as Appolinia Seckinger, but that has been discredited since the Seckinger family was in Georgia; Appolinia was married in South Carolina. Apollonia is the proper Swiss spelling; Apolina is a common spelling. There was an Andrew Seckinger at Ebenezer Church, but no evidence has been shown to tie Appolinia to his family.

His wife's name was Rebecca. Not for certain, but it reasons that she was a Bennett, related to William Bennett who married Mary Sheffield. They were from Robeson County and Duplin County, North Carolina, and moved down to Georgia. in 1820 Census, William and John Bennett were in Bryan County, Ga., and the Sheffields were in Bulloch County. Some think they were Jewish. Two of William Bennett's children were John and Lucy. She was born in 1794 and was the first wife of David Geiger, Abraham's son. John Bennett married Frances Harris from North Carolina. In 1820 her brother Hampton lived in Bryan County and her brother Thompson was in the northwest corner of Georgia in Indian Territory (Gwinnett County). After John died , Frances married Asa Geiger, son of Cornelius. Asa and David were first cousins.

Cornelus mustered into Capt. James Bird's Co., 2nd Regt. (Prays) Georgia Militia Infantry and was discharged April 15, 1815, at Bryan County Courthouse, agreeable to regimental orders.

251. Sarah Daniel, born Bef. 1725; died Aft. 1762. She was the daughter of 502. John Daniel IV and 503. Ann Williams.

Notes for John Harrison:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~harrisonrep/Harrison/d0021/g0000018.html

"Handwriten lineage from a Harrison Farley, great grandson of Harriet (she a great grandau of this John): John Harrison (b. 1712) came to VA from England m. Sarah Daniel. Children: James, Andrew, John (we have no record of his children if married), Col. Richard, Mary, Elizabeth, Anna, Martha, Isham.

"John and Sarah must have moved to Goochland shortly after they were married where they lived at the confluence of the James and Rivanna rivers. Upon the division of Goochland in 1748, they found they now lived in Cumberland Co though they hadn't moved. Sarah's aunt and uncle, Samuel and Elizabeth (Williams) Henderson, also lived in Cumberland then and among their other neighbors were Francis Luck, John Chisum, Jr of Caroline and Andrew Harrison, possibly John's uncle.

"John Chisum and John Harrison were close friends. In 1754 the Hendersons moved to the Nut Bush community in Granville Co., NC and sometime before 1760 both John Chisum, Jr and Francis Luck moved from Cumberland to Halifax Co, VA (present Pittsylvania). John Harrison and his family also moved to Halifax but the date is uncertain. Harrison is named among 30 of he earliest and most prominent citizens of Halifax who owned land and slaves. Neighbors in Halifax were Pigg, Dillard, Hurt, Collins, and Ecchols families all of whom originated in the Reedy-Polecat Creek area of St. Margaret's parish in Caroline Co.

"Upon the death of John, Sarah rented the Halifax plantation to tenants and took her children to live with her parents at Daniel's Mill in Caroline Co. Sometime before June 1761, the Daniel family and Sarah moved to the Nut Bush community in NC to join their Williams, Daniel and Henderson relatives. Sarah's brothers James and John Williams Daniel had gone there from VA in 1760.John Harrison bought 696 acres on Straitstone Creek in Halifax "where I now live" from Francis Luck on 17 Jan. 1761. The land was granted to Luck six months earlier and was in two parcels on both sides of the creek. One tract, adjoining Echols' corner, contained 296 acres "with houses, orchard, garden, woods, water courses, and other appurtenances," and was the plantation on which the Harrison's resided. The other, Harrison's upper survey, consisted of 400 acres adjoining Collins' corner. On the same day that Harrison bought the Straitstone Creek plantation, he made his will - "being sick and weak in body but of perfect mind and memory." He signed his name, and it was witnessed by Joseph Collins, Francis Luck, and Thomas Greenwood. The will was probated on 16 July 1761 at a Halifax court. He "lent" to his wife Sarah for her lifetime the house "where I now dwell" with 130 adjoining acres, to pass to "my eldest son James" at her death, except household goods which were to be divided among my four daughters, Mary, Anne, Martha, and Elizabeth." Sarah also received the chattels (slaves) and money from any debts owed him. lie left the remainder of the homestead tract (166 acres) to sons John, Jr. and Andrew, and the upper survey (400 acres) to Richard and Isham. He named as executors with his wife "my friend John Chisum and my wife's brother John Williams Daniel."~ 8 James Harrison was 13 years old when his father died. It is believed that Mrs. Sarah (Daniel) Harrison rented the Halifax plantation to tenants and took her children to live with her parents at Daniel's Mill in Caroline County. By March I 761,James and his brother Andrew were enrolled in the famous school of Donald Robertson in upper King and Queen County, Va., not far from Daniel's Mill. They paid tuition "to Christmas," as recorded by the headmaster in his account book.~9 Robertson's Academy was one of the finest in Virginia prior to the Revolution, and among the boys' classmates were Edmund Pendleton and James Madison."

"The Will of John Harrison names his children James, Mary, Anne, Martha, Elizabeth, John, Andrew, Richard and Isom. Executors were John William Daniel, John Chism and Sarah Daniel Harrison. Witnesses to the Will were Thomas Greenwood, Joseph Collins and Francis Luck.

Notes for Sarah Daniel:

Harrison Repository:

"Sarah (Patsy) Daniel, was the daughter of John Daniel IV and his wife, Anne Williams, of Caroline County, Va. They were second cousins, and both were descended from the immigrants John Daniel I and John Williams I, who settled on Queen's Creek in York County, Va. in 1645. Their families intermarried and became connected with the Keeling, Fleming, and Henderson families of York and New Kent whose ancestry has been traced back to Magna Carta Sureties and the Roll of Battle Abbey through the Fleming line. As prominent members of their communities, they served on vestries and in various govt. offices. John Williams II built Studley on the Pamunkey River in New Kent County which later was sold and became the birthplace of Patrick Henry. John Daniel III of York County died in 1722 and left a plantation with slaves in Hanover County to his son, John Daniel IV, who had married Anne Williams, daughter or John Williams Ill and his wife, Mary Keeling, of York. John IV and Anne (Williams) Daniel were living on the Hanover plantation at the time of his father's death, and their daughter, Sarah (Patsy), probably was born in Hanover about 1725. Brothers and sisters were John Williams, Martha, Elizabeth, and James Daniel. John Daniel IV sold the Hanover plantation in 1732 and moved to Goochland County where he became involved in a court case two years later with his wife's nephew, John Williams. He lost the case and in disgust moved to Caroline County to join his brother, Williams Daniel, the owner of a mill on Beverley Run. John IV took over operation of the mill, leaving Williams free to delve into politics. A tobacco rolling road was built from Daniel's Mill to the warehouse on the Rappahannock River, and traffic became so heavy there was need for a tavern (hotel) on the route. In 1741 John Sneed was issued a license to operate a tavern at Daniel's Mill, and this brought many young men to its premises. Sarah Daniel's sister, Elizabeth, married Christopher Dudley of Caroline in 1742, and about 1743 Sarah married John Harrison."

"John Daniel IV died at Nutt Bush in August 1762 and Mrs. Daniel's brother-in-law, Samuel Henderson, became a surrogate grandfather-guardian to the Harrison's boys. The Henderson lived in a large home on Nut Bush Creek near present Williamsboro. A believer in cultural education, Henderson had established a school for his 11 children and then employed a second tutor to teach them French. A dancing master also was frequently in residence at the Henderson home. Nut Bush communicants attended St. John's Episcopal Church (still extant at Williamsboro) near the home of Judge John Williams, nephew of Mrs. Henderson and law partner of the Henderson's eldest son, Richard. (Both John Williams and Richard Henderson became justices of the North Carolina Supreme Court.)John Daniel IV died at Nutt Bush in August 1762 and Mrs. Daniel's brother-in-law, Samuel Henderson, became a surrogate grandfather-guardian to the Harrison's boys.

Notes for Isham Harrison:

Isham Harrison (son of John Harrison and Sarah Daniel) apparently had the following residences: VA; Granville County, NC; Franklin County, IL; and Madison County, MO. His Revolutionary War Pension Papers state: "...he was born in the state of VA and raised in Granville County, NC." Isham and his family lived in Virginia until about 1796, when they moved to South Carolina. They lived in South Carolina until about 1814, when they moved to Southern Illinois.

Isham served as a lieutenant in NC militia during the Rev. In 1788 they moved to Spartanburg Co. SC, which he represented in the SC Senate, 1797-98, and the SC House, 1800-02. He was sheriff of Spartanburg, 1802-06, and a county judge. In 1810 he took his slaves and moved to southern Illinois with his sons, Andrew and Lemuel, who settled on adjacent farms. The town of Christopher, Ill. was erected on the site. Isham was a member of the convention that adopted the state Constitution in 1818. When Illinois became a free state, he took his slaves and moved to Missouri about 1818 and died in 1835 at age 75.

Harriet Harrison Swain oral family history of her grandfather Isham: "He later was a representative from Franklin county to the constitutional convention and assisted in drafting the first constitution of the State of Illinois. It is a matter of pride to the family that though he was a slave holder, and came from a long line of men who knew no other life, he voted against slavery being legalized in the new state."

There is reason to doubt that the same Edward Goodson that is mentioned below is the one who fathered children after the age of 60, in 1702 and beyond. One or two generations could be missing, and other Goodsons were in Virginia at the same time.

One Edward Goodson arrived in America from England, 28 Nov, 1656, sponsored by Wiliam Blackey. Blackey recieved 1000 acres in New Kent Co, VA as headrights for transport of 20 people, among them Edward Goodson. (Cavaliers and Pioneers, Nugent, p. 342)

One Edward Goodson received 50 acres in Isle of Wight Co, VA (abstracts of Va land Patents and Grants, 1623-1666, by Cozier). Later received 475 acres in Isle of Wight, 1714. [could have been a son of the same name?]

Thomas Goodson; Thomas Goodson, Jr. ; William Goodson ; George Goodson ; Eliza Goodson and others resided in Isle of Wight VA about the same time - it is not certain which is the patricarch of most Goodson families.

449. Sarah Montgomery, born Bef. 1658 in prob. Nansemond Co., VA. She was the daughter of 898. James Montgomery.

Notes for William Granberry, Jr.:

His son was of age in March 1694/5, indicating he was married by 1673. He was a witness to the Belson-Crew quaker marriage at Chuckatuck on "13th day of 10th mo" (December, not October) 1684, though not, himself, a Quaker.

He was on the Rent Roll of 1704 for 300 acres "held of her majestie" and must therefore have had a grant of such land, but no record of any patent covering it has been found and it must be presumed that it was among the records known to have been lost. From the topography, surveys of adjoining grants and of modern surveys as laste as 1916 and 1944, it appears that it was the tract "on the South side of the main at Bennetts Creek" leased to Thomas Minton on 27 Sep 1770, but there is nothing to confirm this.

It could not have been "the plantation Samuel Granbery lives on" on 17 Nov 1749, for that was leased to Mr. Stockdale, and then, to the fourth William Granbery. It may, however, have been the same 300 acres owned by another William Granbery, the son of John and Abigail, in 1782, since quit rents had then been abolished and the land was held in fee simple. "The plantation Samuel Granbery lives on" was that bequeathed by Richard Bennett "unto the parish where I now live all that parcel of land Being 300 acres more or less whith Thos. Bolton holdeth by lease" as quoted in his letter of 19 Jun 1749 by Richard Bennett, grandson of the testator, from the latter's will. This William Granbery died in 1710.

Notes for Abraham Geiger:

Special thanks to Stanley DeWayne Rogers, Sr. for the following and for much of the info on the Geiger family. He cites "The Gieger Family" - from Orangeburgh German-Swiss Genealogical Society and Percy L. Geiger's "The Geigers of South Carolina."

"Abraham Geiger was born in 1687 in the small village of Hassioch, Switzerland, in the province of St. Gallen, Hassloch was a small village near the somewhat larger town of Berneck -- located about three kilomerters from the Austrian boarder, and lies just South of Lake Constance (Bodensee). Abrahams's father was Hans Geiger, and his mother was Anna Feer. He was christened on March 19, 1687 in the Evangelisch-Reformierte (Lutheran) church in Bemeck, Switzerland." Quote from Gerald T. Bennett.

 

He and other family members arrived and settled in his Majesty's Township of Saxe-Gotha by 1737, and received his Majesty's most gracious bounty of provisions and warrants for lands there, and was granted one hundred acres of land against the Santee River, opposite Saxe-Gotha by 1744, which he had already begun to clear, and on which he had built his house.

"Abraham Geiger was banished from SC as a result of involvement in the Weberite Heresy (difficult to prove). A John Geiger was found guilty (SC Gazette 25 Apr 1761). Four of Abraham's sons could have been called John."

"The Weberite Heresy (as recorded by Clayton B. Kleckley):

"A very strange sect known as the Weberites arose among the German speaking people in Saxe-Gotha and lower Dutch Fork, South Carolina in 1756-1761. This cult originated along the Saluda River, in the neighborhood of Younginer's Ferry. Its area of local influence extended from about Little Mountain to the confluence of Broad and Saluda Rivers.

"The sect originated with Jacob Waber (Weber), who was born in Switzerland and was raised and educated in the Reformed Church. He came to South Carolina at the age of 14 with a brother. Weber prospered early in life as a local planter. But the death of his brother caused him to brood about religion and the state of his own soul. In May 1756, inner excitement reached a climax in his soul-searching experiences. Weber shared his religious enthusiasm with his neighbors by inviting them in for Sunday hymn and singings and readings from sermon books. He was encouraged by the response he received and those meetings seemed to be beneficial. Gradually the participants began to admire the reader, which in turn caused him to admire himself. The more recognition he received, the more esteem he had for his talents.

"During the peaceful years of 1758 and 1759, this bizarre sect caused no trouble in the settlements. It became evident that the Cherokee War had made deep impressions and caused strain among the followers of Jacob Weber. Saxe Gotha and the Dutch Fork did not escape the Indian raids. Cherokee parties penetrated their forests and emerged to scalp, murder and burn. The grave dislocations and terror of the Cherokee War deluded these early settlers. The ravages of Indian Warfare hung over the German and Swiss settlements of Saxe Gotha and Dutch Fork by spring of 1760. The people in this locality were without schools. While this caused little concern prior to the Cherokee War, the lack of instruction was sorely felt as the population increased. The spiritual condition of the settlers was most deplorable as the self-appointed ministers usually wandered into the settlements every four to twelve weeks. A pastor visited their isolated community hardly twice a year. The Church of England was the official church at the time, but it was not accepted by the German speaking inhabitants in the area.

"After a season of depression and the ending of the Cherokee War, Jacob Weber became obsessed with the idea that he was the Deity. He began to put aside the teachings of the Bible and preach out of his own spirit. Jacob Weber won over two co-workers who desired to be no less important in the meetings of the cult. They too professed most extraordinary revelations and helped to promote the sect. Meanwhile, the three leaders adjusted their differences by agreeing that Jacob Weber should represent and act as God the Father, Schmidt Peter the Son, and a third person, Mr. Dauber, a godless black preacher, the Holy Spirit. These three leaders of the sect claimed to be the Holy Trinity. It has been said that Schmidt Peter (Peter Schmidt) was a co-founder of the sect. Jacob Weber's wife, Hanna, was declared the Virgin Mary. Facts reveal that she was Anna Shrymerin before marring Weber (Weaver). She originally received a grant for 50 acres in 1754 on the South side of the Saluda River below the 12-mile Creek.

"With this organization, the sect grew stronger and stronger and practiced the most atrocious blasphemies. The sect has some similarity with Knipperodolling and Jan Van Leiden. This religious disorder swept through the German and Swiss settlements. The sect gained such momentum that neighbors joined it because they feared for safety of their lives. Jacob Weber was determined that unconverted members must be healed through his stripes. Groups of both sects went about unclothed and naked, and practiced the most abominable, wanton atrocities. In their religious rites they often fell into trances. They sanctioned nudity and marital confusion.

"Finally, the three leaders began quarreling among themselves. Jacob Weber and Schmidt Peter had a disagreement with the third man, Mr. Dauber, who represented himself as the Holy Spirit. Jacob Weber and Schmidt Peter agreed that Dauber was not properly exercising the office of the Spirit, and that he was neither hot or cold, but only lukewarm. They placed a mattress on the bottom of the pit, threw Dauber in and piled more mattresses and pillows on him. Members of the sect leaped in upon Dauber and trampled him until he suffocated. The corpse was then taken out of bed and thrown into a burning pile of wood, to be consumed to ashes.

"Soon afterwards, Weber quarreled with Schmidt Peter, "the son." He declared Schmidt Peter to be Satin in disguise and ordered him chained to a tree. The band surrounded Schmidt Peter, struck him with their fists, and beat him until he fell to the ground. Finally, they danced around him and trampled upon his throat until he was dead.

"These atrocious murders were committed on February 23 and 24, 1761.

"Charlestown authorities learned of these murders by the Weberites, and soon the whole province was shocked by these shocking crimes. After another murder in Feburary, 1761, the leading members of the sect were brought to Charlestown for trial. Jacob Weber, his wife, Hanna Weber, John Geiger and Jacob Burghart were tried in Charlestown and condemned to death. Jacob Weber was convicted and hung in April 1761, but the others were pardoned by Lieutenant Governor William Bull."

Interpreted from the SC Gazette April 25, 1761 by Stanley D. Roers, Sr.

On the 5th ult. Some unhappy wretches, who, in a fit of religious (?) and enthusiasim, had in a most barbarous manner, murdered one Michael Hass (?) and Capt. John George Smith Bader(?), on the 23rd and 24th of Febrary last, at Congaree, were brought down from thence, and committed to jail. Their delusion was so great that they acknowledged the murders, and for some days attempted to justify themselves; but at March sessions they were too well convinced of their error, that seven of them were indicted and tried and four convicted. Jacob Weber, John Geiger, Jacob Burghart, and Hannah Weber; who all received sentence of death on the 3(?) and on the 17th (?) Jacob Weber was hanged persuant to his sentence, behaving a very becoming manner and dying a true penitent: The other three are reprieved till May."

Sankt Gallen is the most important city of Eastern Switzerland, with a trading area that extends from Lake Constance (Bodensee) on the north to the Säntis Alps region. The city was founded in 612 A.D., when the Irish monk Gallus and a companion built a hut (reportedly with the help of a bear) in the forests of the Steinbach Valley. The hut evolved into a Benedictine monastery that became one of the great intellectual centers of Europe during the 8th and 9th Centuries. A town was founded around the abbey, and eventually the town--named St. Gallen, after the abbey's founding monk--grew into a major producer of linen and embroidered cotton fabric. The city remains Switzerland's textile center, and you can shop for quality embroidered goods at a handful of Broderie shops: most notably Saphir and Sturzenegger, both of which are retail outlets of local factories.

The abbey was secularized in 1805, nearly 300 years after the Reformation drove the Catholic Church from this part of Switzerland. The old monastery buildings now serve various civic functions, but the most important of them--the Stiftsbiblithek, or Abbey Library--continues to attract scholars with its 100,000 volumes and nearly 2,000 illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages. The library is also St. Gallen's premiere tourist attraction, and every year thousands of visitors don felt slippers and shuffle around the 18th Century library with its inlaid flooring, Rococo decorations, and display cases filled with ancient books.

Notes for Barbara Zänger:

Barbara Zanger

She arrived with her parents in Charlestown in Jul 1735 on the ship Samuel, and they settled in Orangeburgh Township. Her mother died almost immediately, and Simon Zänger second-married Anna Barbara Straumann on 3 Nov 1737. Simon Zänger died before 14 Feb 1746/7, when Barbara Straumann Zänger second-married Melchior Ott, around the same time that her stepdaughter Barbara Zänger married John Geiger of Saxegotha Township. In 1759, John and Barbara Zänger Geiger sold the 150 acres she'd inherited from her father to two of her Ott step-step-brothers. Their sons were John Geiger II, Abraham Geiger and Tobias Geiger. They had at least 3 daughters, two of whom lived with widow Barbara Geiger (near her sons and the Senn households) in the Dutch Fork, Lexington Co SC, at the time of the 1790 census. This couple never went to GA, nor did their children.

Notes for Sir Gideon Ison:

Note; Some speculate that there was no such person as Gideon Ison, while others share the following:

 

About 1700, as a reward for Gideon's faithfulness and loyalty in the fight for his crown, King William III of England, bestowed knighthood upon him. When Gideon's son John wanted to marry a commoner, Gideon forbid it. In spite of this, John's love for his comely lass led him to rebel against his father's wishes and he married her anyway. They soon ran away to America.

This particular line of Isons in America began with John and Martha Elizabeth Huff. In spite of Gideon's displeasure with them they named their first-born child after Gideon.

Notes for James Ratcliff:

"James Radcliff/Ratcliff ... was an early Quaker minister and was persecuted persistently in Lancashire from 1675-1684. He was frequently imprisoned and it has been suggested that this may have contributed to his early death at age 45. James and his wife, Mary were imprisoned at Manchester, England for attending Quaker meetings. On February 19, 1684, he was accused of preaching at Quaker meetings he had not attended. He was fined severely, losing personal property, livestock, and grain. He was also put in prison again. James deeded his 9 acres at Chapel Hill to the Society of Friends for a burial ground on April 17, 1685. The Society of Friends (Quakers) still own this ground to this day. On May 21, 1685, James and Mary declared their intent to removing to America.

James, his wife, Mary, and his four children boarded the "Rebecca of Liverpool" and arrived at Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on November 11, 1685. They had previously transferred their Quaker membership to the Middletown MM, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania on June 29, 1685.

James purchased 200 acres of land near Wrightstown, Buck Co., Pennsylvania on February 21, 1690, (Deed Book 1, page 334). He and Nicholas Walne made a tour of Maryland, preaching at Friends Meeting Houses and reported this on September 3, 1689. James' youngest brother Richard Radcliffe joined him in Philadelphia briefly before settling in Talbot Co., Maryland.

847. Clare <Unknown>

Notes for Stephen Gary:

Thanks to Bob Taylor, 2005: Rdtaylor4texas@aol.com

He was christened Steephen Gerry 2 May 1624 at Talland, Cornwall County, England, the son of John and Elizabeth Gerry (Gary). (Talland parish records, LDS film #0916986)) He and John Withers were first granted 1000 acres of land in Westmoreland County, VA ;on October 6, 1654, the land bounded on the N.E. by land of Capt. Brent and S.W. with a branch of the Petomeck Creek, for the transportation of 20 persons, including a Cleare Browne. (VA Land Patent Book 3, p. 373; also "Cavaliers and Pioneers," Vol. 1, p. 315).

Cleare Browne could well be Stephen's future wife, Clare. Patent Book 5 records that on March 18, 1662, Col. Vallentine Peyton was granted 500 acres on the N. side of the branch of the Petomecke Creek and on the N.E. side of the land of Capt. Brent; and 150 acres upon the head of a branch of said Petomecke Cr. and E. upon land of Capt. Brent; 500 acres being the moiety of 1000 acres granted to Withers and Garey.

Clare (Browne??) Gary, wife of Stephen, immigrated in 1653 (Liber Q, Folio 204) Stephen Gary immigrated in 1650, was referred to as "Gent." with commission to survey 1500 acres on the Eastern Shore (Maryland) (Liber 7, Folio 581).

Stephen Gary and Arthur Wright were appraisers of the estate of Thomas Skinner, Henry Beckwith, bondsman, 10 Feb 1675.

Stephen Gary and William Stevens and others were appointed to keep the peace in Dorchester County in 1669. (History of Dorchester County, MD, p. 31)

On June 14, 1674, Stephen Gary and William Stevens and others were appointed Justices of the county, and on August 9, 1676, Stephen was appointed one of the justices. (Hist. of Dorchester Co., pp. 38, 39)

On October 28, 1678, Stephen Gary was paid 85 pounds of tobacco for serving in the campaign or aiding the troops against the Nanticoke Indians. (HIst. of Dorchester Co., p. 40, 41)

At a Colonial Council in 1681, a petition was presented by James Peterkin against Stephen Gary, Sheriff of Dorchester County, that Gary and others had combined to defraud and deceive him of his just rights and property; that they illegally proceeded in the execution of a warrant; for summoning a jury to lay out the bounds of Capt. Anthony Dawson's land in Transquaking River, by compelling jurors excepted by Peterkin, and that damage had almost ruined him. An investigation was ordered. (Hist. Of Dorchester Co,, p. 43.)

 

27 Oct 1675 From will of Stephen Gary- to my grandchild Mary Warner Refuse Neck, 50 acres adjoining my plantation.

Dorchester County is one of the original counties of Maryland, formed before April 13, 1669. Before its formation, the area was already surveyed and home to early settlers such as Anthony LeCompte, William Chaplin, Richard Bentley, Thomas Stone, Thomas Stillington, John Gary and Stephen Gary, Francis Armstrong, Peter Sharpe, John Felton, William Stevens, Thomas Powell, John Hudson, and others. Nearly 500 settlers lived in the area by the time of the county's formation. The area was also home to Nanticoke and Abacos indians.

"For George M. Radcliffe of Cambridge, Md., farming goes beyond simple dollars and cents. It's a way of life, seeped in family history. Radcliffe traces his connection to the farm more than 300 years - back to ancestor Stephen Gary, one of Dorchester County's first "gentlemen justices" who in 1662 made claim to what is now Radcliffe's land and about 1,250 surrounding acres."

From the College of Journalism, Capitol News Service on, Friday, February 24, 1995.

Spocott Windmill - In 1663 Stephen Gary of Cornwall, England, secured a patent from Lord Baltimore for approximately 250 acres of land named Spocott on the Little Choptank River. After his death, a descendent, John Anthony LeCompte Radcliffe, built a self-contained community consisting of saw mills, blacksmith shops, shipyards, etc. One project was the erection of a post mill in 1850, at approximately the same site as an earlier windmill. The mill continued to operate until it was blown down in March of 1888. Both the millstones and the original set of interior stairs from the mill were saved as well as certain of the timbers. In 1971 a windmill was reconstructed on Gary's Creek about 100 feet from the site of the original Spocott Windmill.

Notes for Clare <Unknown>:

Possibly Clare Browne or Cleare Browne.

Cleare Browne could well be Stephen's future wife, Clare.

897. Anne <Unknown>, born Bef. 1637; died Aft. 1704.

Notes for William Granbery:

From "John Granbery : Virginia" by Julian Hastings Granbery (paraphrased and quoted)

William and his brother John are thought to have emigrated to Virginia in 1650 and settled in Nansemond County. No record has been discovered of his actual emigration, neither can any statement be made as to what vessel they sailed on or from what port, nor under what names. They, in common with the greater part of Devonshire families, were Stuart adherents and thus exposed to the persecution of Cromwell's forces during the Civil War. The destruction of parish registers, rectors homes and the wanton mutilation of all sorts of property as well as incediarism and outrage througout Devonshire at that time fix the date so definitely that there cannot be any question but that they emigrated in 1650 to Virginia. Once in Virginia, as loyal to the Stuarts as their own Devonshire, they continued to use their own name and to spell it Granbery in every authentic sgnature identified as theirs; just as it was spelled in 1545.

William Granbery was a planter, and married soon after arriving as son William was born in 1752. He, with his brother John, bought 240 acres (one half of the Fitch patent of 1652) on Simon's Creek in Lower Norfolk County, now Norfolk County, on 7 Feb 1656, which they sold on 14 Apr 1667 to Thomas Ellis, giving bond in the amount of 20,000 lb. of tobacco and cask. Ellis's son sold, on 16 Nov 1694, a neck of land taken out of this "on the South side of the Westerne branch" to Thomas Wakefield.

He was granted 85 acres of land on Bennetts Creek by Sir Henry Chichiley, Deputy Governor, on 30 Apr 1679, which grant was afterwards the subject of an action brought by James Lockheart who; losing his case in the County Court; appealed to the General Court at James City (Jamestown) which ordered new surveys to be made and gave its verdict in favor of William, upholding the decision of the lower court. The case dragged on for two years. Lockheart being held "in Safe Custody without Bayl or mainprize" until he satisfied the writ of the General Court on 16 Mar 1693 by the payment of 1700 lb. of tobacco and costs. William, 79 years old when he signed acknowledgement of the execution of the writ, did not long survive and died later in the same year or early in 1694.

His widow, Anne, was on the Rent Roll for 75 acres in 1704, and, since the re-survey of 1691 modified the acreage of the original grant, it can be assumed that it was the same land. It is certain that his son had it later on. Quit Rents, as given in the Rent Rolls, were due "on the day of St. Michael the Archangel" (Sept. 29).

The two brothers, John and William Granbery, had at least four surviving sons. Except for William Jr., it is not easy to place the others. The others were Samuel Granbery, John Granbery and Peter Granbery.

905. Lydia Richardson, born Abt. 1617; died Abt. 1700 in Norfolk, VA.

Notes for John Manning:

In 1635 John Manning, age 20, came to Virginia on the GLOBE from the Port of London. In the same year, Thomas Manning, age 16, came on the Primrose.

A Norfolk County deed shows that a Thomas Manning was in Nansemond in 1655 but records of that county were burned.

In 1669 John and Lydia Manning lived on the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River in Norfolk County. Their children were Mary Hodges, Margaret Taylor, Thomas and John.

In 1694 John Watford willed to Soloman, "youngest son of my father-in-law Thomas Manning", to sister Sarah Manning, and brother Thomas Manning, and to brother John Manning. Thomas Manning lived on the Western Branch of the Elizabeth River.

In 1702 John Manning of the Western Branch bought land from Eastwood and in 1716 he deeded it to Joseph Watford. He signed his name while the numerous Johns on the Eastern Branch made their marks.

In 1740 a John and Mary Manning sold land that had been patented to Nicholas Manning in 1711 - land on the Western Branch of the Elizabeth River ... The wife of Nicholas Manning was Elizabeth, daughter of Martin and Judith Joyce. (The will of Martin Joyce is abstrated by McIntosh in NORFOLK WILLS, p. 71.)

In 1738 George Rowse willed to his sister Mary Manning all the land on the Western Branch and left personal property to his nephews George and Benjamin Manning. He made his brother-in-law John Manning executor of the will. James Bruce, who was a witness on the 1740 deed mentioned above, was also a testator to this will. (In 1755 in Bertie Co., NC, Mary and John Manning deeded the land whereon their son George did live to their son Benjamin).

In 1713 John, evidently son of John and Lydia (because he used the same mark), had sons Joseph, John, William and Thomas. William and Thomas signed their names, but Joseph and John made marks. The wife of this John was Sarah.

In 1760, sons of Soloman Manning and wife Ann were William, Thomas and Soloman.

In 1762, Thomas, son of Soloman, solf land he had inherited on the Western Branch.

John, son of the John of 1713 will, moved into Bertie Co., NC also, and has many descendants there. (He made his mark).

Children of John Manning and Lydia Richardson are:

i. Mary Manning, born Abt. 1637; married Roger Hodges in VA; died Abt. 1708 in Norfolk Co., VA.

ii. Margaret Manning, born Abt. 1644; married Richard Taylor 1666 in Julian Creek, Norfolk, VA; born 05 Nov 1641 in Julian Creek, Norfolk, VA; died Aug 1679 in Julian Creek, Norfolk, VA.

iii. Thomas Manning, born Abt. 1641 in Norfolk, VA; married Sarah <Widow> Wafford 1664 in VA.

Notes for Sarah <Widow> Wafford:

She was married 1st to John Wafford.

452 iv. John Manning, born Abt. 1643 in Lower Norfolk, VA; died Abt. 1716; married Sarah Wafford.

 

906. John Wafford, born Bef. 1630.

Child of John Wafford is:

453 i. Sarah Wafford, born Abt. 1650; died Abt. 1694 in Pitt Co., NC; married John Manning.

 

928. William Travis, born Abt. 1630 in Bandon Bridge, County Cork, Munster, Ireland; died Abt. 1680 in Lancaster Co., NC. He was the son of 1856. William Travis and 1857. Rebecca Booth. He married 929. Sarah West Abt. 1666 in Providence, RI.

929. Sarah West, born Abt. 1640.

Notes for William Travis:

William Travers moved from VA across the line to NC and proved his rights of settlement in Edenton, once capitol of the state. He had a commission to employ Indians in defense of the Colony in 1673.

In 1677 one William Travis was a Burgess from Lancaster Co., VA. There is an indication that he died in 1678, and this William of NC is a different man.

One researcher believes that his grandson was Dr. Edward Travis, an ancestor of William Barrett Travis. I believe for that to be so, it would have to be from a child of a first (unknown) spouse.

Notes for Sarah West:

She is shown by some to be the daughter of Robert West and Martha Cullen, who were in a later generation. Martha Cullen's descendants are well known and do not include Travis.

Children of William Travis and Sarah West are:

i. Margory Travis, born 1667 in VA.

464 ii. Daniel Travis, born 1669 in RI or VA; died Abt. 1696 in Upper Chowan - Perquimins Co., NC; married Susannah King in Albemarle Co., NC.

The earliest Denmark ancestor for this family was a John Denmark who was an immigrant from England. It is believed he brought his family with him, but no document has verified the fact. John Denmark was living on a Plantation near the site where Jamestown, VA., is now located, near the Eastern shore of Virginia. The earliest date found for him, is February 16, 1623, though he must have arrived a bit sooner.

Child of John Denmarke is:

Notes for John Stafford:

will signed 5-15-1733, probated March 1735.

"John Stafford was born in York County Virginia around 1669, the son of William Stafford II and his wife, name unknown. He married around 1669 Ann Wyatt. The first three of their children were born in York Co. Virginia and the last three in Bath Co. North Carolina. By 1700 the family had moved to North Carolina, first to Bath Precinct later to become Beaufort County, NC. In the Colonial and State Records of NC is the statement of the President of the Proprietors of NC complaining that William Stafford was talking to the men who had been enlisted to fight the Indians and that most of them subsequently had resigned from his army. A little later is found a letter from the President to the Governor of Virginia asking him to extradite William Stafford, brother of John, who had fled to Virginia to avoid execution because of these subversive acts. He later returned to NC and was a farmer. In John Stafford's will executed in Beaufort County NC in 1733 he leaves to each of his five sons a plantation of at least 100 acres and to his daughter Dinah a box of irons and heaters. He also said the remainder of the estate was to be sold and proceeds equally divided between his children, except the oldest William was not mentioned in the cash distribution. His children were William b. 1693, John b 1695, Joshua 1697, all in Virginia. Edward b 1701, Thomas b 1703, Dinah b 1705 in North Carolina."

http://www.lamartin.com/genealogy/stafford.htm

The name of Diana Batters is sometimes shown as another spouse of John Stafford; was she a wife of this same man?

Notes for Ann Wyatt:

"Ann Wyatt was born about 1677 in York County Virginia, the daughter of John Wyatt. She married about 1692 John Stafford, son of William Stafford. In 1715 Ann and John were living in Beaufort county North Carolina as shown by the following: Book 1 page 268 Beaufort county NC " Granted John Stafford and Ann his wife, Daughter of John Wyat, William Cording as intermarrying the widow of the said Wyat deceased 14.8.3 appearing due for the said Ann's part, and ordered to be paid the same out of the Estate of Deceased. and on the same page "Received of William Cording, Executer of the estate of John Wyat, the sum of fourteen pounds, eight shillings, and three pence, being the full sum due to the daughter Ann of the said John Wyat in Virginia as her part of the appraisement, and by order of Court, (which said Ann Wyat is now my wife) we say received by us this 5th day of August 1715. It is signed by the mark of John Stafford and Ann Wyatt Stafford. Ann was not mentioned in her husband's will of 1733, so evidently she had died before then."

Children of John Stafford and Ann Wyatt are:

i. William Stafford, born 1693 in VA; died Jul 1742 in Bathtown, Bath Co., NC; married Frances <Unknown>.

The date of the marriage has not been found but their son Thomas Peter Stafford was born about 1718. In 1741 John Stafford and his wife Mary sold 100 acres which his father John Stafford had willed to him, this is shown in Deed Book 1 page 133. In Anson County Deed Bok A page 99 in 1749 John Stafford of Anson County NC sold 213 acres on the Pee Dee River. Later in 1754 he bought 128 acres on the Pee Dee and a 50 acre tract adjoining. In 1760 he received from King George a grant of 600 acres in the newly opened land of the Creek Cession along the northern border of Georgia. The grant was in St. Phillips Parish in the part which was later cut off as Franklin County and still later as Bullock County. He later moved to Georgia as on Page 305 of Book 1 of Georgia Land Surveys John has had surveyed 150 acres on the north side of the Ogeechee River for Joshua Stafford, his brother, in 1768.

1010. Thomas Spencer, born Bef. 1652.

Notes for Thomas Spencer:

Not certain if the biography below is for this man or a close relative. Thanks to Barbara Beall:

Thomas Spencer of King & Queen had 3 marriages instead of two. His first marriage was to Susannah Perry (see my website); his second marriage was to Elizabeth Whelling or Wheeling, whom he married in 1693, per parish records. She must not have lived very long because his third marriage (and the one for which he is known) was in 1694/5 to Anne Woodward, daughter of William Woodward.

A William Spencer married Ann Woodward, a patentee in 1664 in New Kent County. (No doubt these people are in some way related to the Spencers and Woodwards who followed them). According to "Old New Kent County Some Accounts of the Planters, Plantations & Places in King william County St. John Parish Vols. I & II (compiled by Malcolm Hart Harris MD, 1977), Spencers Ferry crossing the Pamunkey River originally belonged to Thomas Spencer (p. 192). Spencer's Plantation on the SW corner of the road leading toward the York River was the site of the early Spencer home (p. 392). An Edward Spencer resided there in 1782; in 1800 a John Spencer resided there. (p. 273). Whem William Woodward died in September 1695, a surveyor by the name of James Minge (he was the surveyor for King & Queen), partitioned the property as follows: The upper part of Woodward divident lay along Duck creek (Montague Creek- 1,350 acres of land bet. Capt. Thos. Spencer and Ann Woodward his wife, who were alloted the upper part of the plantation on which the Spencers were living. the remainder was given to Martha Woodward and her second husband Capt. Nathaniel West (p. 741). Martha West deeded to Capt. Thomas Spencer 350 acres 30 July 1708 (p. 747)

Child of Thomas Spencer is:

505 i. Elizabeth Spencer, born Abt. 1672 in King & Queen Co., VA; married (1) James White Bef. 1700; married (2) Gabriel Baubau Aft. Feb 1702/03 in St. Mark's Par., Orange, VA.

Notes for John Gerry:

"The Visitation of the County of Cornwall in the Year 1620" that lists one "Stephen Gere" as a member of a Town Council (Thanks to Carroll Collins ccollins@jnt.com May 2002). Is it a close relative of this family?

1793. Dorothy <Unknown>, died 1630 in Exeter, Devonshire, England.

Notes for Leonard Crambury:

A Gentleman (also spelled Cranburye and Cranberrye). It is believed that Leaonard Granbery served as Sword Bearer of the City of Exeter from 1613 to 1618, but no record that he performed such service is known to exist. An ancient letter, preserved in the Strong Room of the City Library in Exeter, requesting his appointment states "there is not a more personable man to be found." He appears to have been born about 1580 but it may have been earlier or even two years later for it is perfectly definite that his father William married Pastoe before 1584. Two children of Leonard and Dorothy were young boys in 1623 and the dates of their births correspond quite closely with the original records in England as well as their activities in Virginia.

John Granbery : Virginia

Compiled and Edited by Julian Hastings Granbery

Privately Published by Alice Granbery Walter, 1964

Children of Leonard Crambury and Dorothy <Unknown> are:

896 i. William Granbery, born Abt. 1614 in Exeter, Devonshire, England; died 1694 in Nansemond Co., VA; married Anne <Unknown>.

ii. John Granbery, born Abt. 1616 in Exeter, Devonshire, England; died 1689 in Nansemond Co., VA; married (1) Avis Allen 06 Jun 1644; died Abt. 1648; married (2) Elizabeth <Unknown> Abt. 1655 in Nansemond Co., VA.

Notes for John Granbery:

John and his brother William are thought to have emigrated to Virginia in 1650. No record has been discovered of his actual emigration, neither can any statement be made as to what vessel they sailed on or from what port, nor under what names. They, in common with the greater part of Devonshire families, were Stuart adherents and thus exposed to the persecution of Cromwell's forces during the Civil War. The destruction of parish registers, rectors homes and the wanton mutilation of all sorts of property as well as incediarism and outrage througout Devonshire at that time fix the date so definitely that there cannot be any question but that they emigrated in 1650 to Virginia. Once in Virginia, as loyal to the Stuarts as their own Devonshire, they continued to use their own name and to spell it Granbery in every authentic sgnature identified as theirs; just as it was spelled in 1545.

Notes for John Wyatt II:

"John Wyatt II of Virginia, the father of Ann Wyatt Stafford was born around 1655, the son of John Wyatt II and Jane Osborne. Since his father was born in England he was known as John Wyatt of Virginia. John married about 1675 to Anne whose maiden name is unknown. John Wyatt died in the early 1700's. There are records in 1715 which indicate that his widow Anne later married William Cording. In Book 1 page268 Beaufort county, North Carolina the following is stated: " Granted John Stafford and Ann his wife, Daughter of John Wyat, William Cording as intermarrying the widow of the said Wyat deceased 14.8.3 appearing due for the said Ann's part, and ordered to be paid the same out of the Est. of deceased." Later on the same page is the receipt of same is acknowledged in court: "Received of William Cording, Executor of the estate of John Wyat, the sum of fourteen pounds, eight shillings, and three pence, being the full sum due to the daughter Ann of the said John Wyat in Virginia as her part by the appraisement, and by order of Court, (which said Ann Wyat is now my wife) we say received by us this 5th day of August 1715. It was signed by the mark of John Stafford and Ann Wyatt Stafford."

Notes for William Stafford:

Often identified as a grandson of William Stafford and Dorothy Stafford or Dorothea Stafford ; their descendants are well documented and he cannot be eaily placed among them.

William may have been an indentured servant. Thanks to Janis Bunten: [I omit certain data which is in dispute]

http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/b/u/n/Janis-U-Bunten

"Came to Jamestown VA at 16 as a ward or servant of Francis Mason on the ship Furtherance. (Hotten: Arrivals in VA of Persons of Quality), confirming the evidence with nothing to refute it, that he was the son of William Stafford of Grafton,England, being 5 or 6 when his father died in 1612, making his date of birth about 1606. He made his home at Elizabeth City ... " Va records state that the planter William Stafford was granted 100 acres on Keith's Creek on 8-23-1634, and 300 acres on 11-12-1635. He seemed to die suddenly in 1644, and there is a will and inventory of his estate dated 3March1644. His inventory was appraised at 30,681 lbs of tobacco and 8 negroes."

Thanks to Natalie Whiteman at genforum: [I omit certain data which is in dispute]

" William Johnston Of Isle Of Wight County, Va. and his descendants" William Stafford came to Virginia at the age of 14 aboard the Furtherance in 1622. ... [he] ... had a son William Jr. This William also had a son William III who was married to Jean Brown. They lived in Currituck Precinct, N.C. They also had a son William IV- he was married to a woman named Elizabeth and lived in New Hanover County, N.C. They had a daughter Mary Stafford who was born in 1717 and died 1823 (106 years of age) She is buried at Old Bostick Cemetary in Garnett, S.C. She was married twice that I know of, her first husband was John May of New Hanover County and her second husband was a Mr. Mullet. I don't know if there were siblings. It also states for a complete account of the Stafford Family see the House of Stafford in Annie Elizabeth Miller's Our Family Circle at page 503-505. Just in case anyone was wondering why the Staffords would be in a Johnston book--Mary Stafford May's daughter Elizabeth May married a Johnston.

William Stafford was born around 1608 in England. He is found in America in the official "Muster of Francis Mason," of Elizabeth City, Virginia in 1624. It lists under servants: "William Stafford, aged 16, in the "Futherance," 1622 . The next record is February 11, 1634, John Harvey, Lieutenant Governor granted to William Stafford, a planter of Kolher Creek, in the county of Norwicke River, 100 acres of land on the west side of Kolher Creek. Stafford was to pay each year at the Feast of St. Thomas a rental in Indian Corn. William Stafford married Ann Mason around 1640. They had a son William Stafford born around 1641. William and Ann moved to York Co. Virginia where he died and the inventory of his estate was presented to the court in March 3, 1644.

"The only piece of recorded evidence regarding the wife of William Stafford is in the Virginia Colonial Records, dated November 12, 1635, which grants 50 acres of land for the personal advantage of his wife, Rebecca Stafford. The acreage was located in the Kethes Creek area."

"William Stafford of Virginia", a book on CD published jointly by Richard J. Saunders saundrj@verizon.net and Jean Robinson phatmom@snet.net and shared with me in 2003. (Quotes below are also from this book).

This book also includes "Discussion of One William Stafford vs. Two" in which a[nother?] William Stafford is listed in the same [January 1624] muster as a member of Captain Niccolas Martue / Martian's household. This listing shows him to be age 17. Records indicate that one of the two went to York Co. at about the same time as Nicholas Martian, while the other likely went to Hampton.

"William Stafford was cited in two entries concerning land of his neighbors:

"William Wells was granted 50 acres in the county of Elizabeth City at the head of the Hampton River, adjoining the lands of William Stafford and John Place. ... March 1636 ...

"John Hayward, 150 acs. James City Co., Sept 23, 1639, page 673. S. upon Kethes Cr., unpon W. side of William Stafford, the land called by the name of the Rich Necke. ..."

When William Stafford died "his estate inventory was presented to the court in York County (known also as Chiskiak or Cheesekiacke -- pronounced "Cheesecake") March 3, 1644/5. William's estate inventory included 8 negroes and 2 bibles valued at 60 pounds of tobacco. The total value of the estate was appraised at 30,681 pounds of tobacco. The inventory was signed by Fr. Morgan, Row Burnham. The Jurant was Coram Hugh Gwin.

"The inventory was in the possessoin of John Cluverius. This might be interpreted that the Reverend John Cluverius was, at that point, the owner of said property and was just tidying up the legalities. The fact that John CLuverius' name appears on the court document has led to an often repeated assumption that Ann married for the second time, (date unknown) the Rev. John Cluverius.

"What appears odd is that the estate inventory does not mention Ann Mason Stafford, her son, the reputed William Stafford II, or Rebecca Stafford. If John Cluverius had married Ann Mason Stafford or Rebecca Stafford after the death of William Stafford I, the normal procedure would be for the widow's name of the deceased to be mentioned in some document (such as this inventory) in a similar way ...

"Also, as William Stafford II would have been a three year old child at the time of this Inventory, he should have been provided a Guardian to protect his inheritance in the goods and chattels of WIlliam Stafford I. Granted this process could have been handled in other papers filed in York County, VA; but, to date, such papers have not been located."

Notes for Anne Mason:

Written tradition, undocumented, indicates Anne Mason, daughter of Francis Mason, was his wife.

Some say that William Stafford married first Frances Mason, but that person never existed. Anne Mason had a brother Francis Mason, but not a sister, Frances Mason.

"Ann Mason was born in England about 1610 to Lieutenant Francis Mason and his wife Mary. The family came to America in 1613 on the ship "John and Francis" which landed in Jamestown,Virginia in 1613. Ann probably went back to England for schooling as she is not shown in her father's household in the census taken for 1624. She is shown returning on the ship "Merchants Hope"in 1634. She married William Stafford who had come to America as an indentured servant and lived in her father's home. They married in 1640 and stayed in Elizabeth City for a short while then moved over to York County. They had one son William Stafford II. William Stafford died and his estate inventory was presented to the court in York County on March 3, 1644. Ann married for the second time Rev. John Cluverius."

Notes for Capt. Alexander Fleming:

"There is no evidence whatsoever which identifies Capt. Alexander Fleming of Virginia as being the same person as Alexander, the second son of John Fleming, Earl of Wigtown."

Capt. Alexander died by 13 Mar 1668 when his will was probated in Old Rappahannock County (the will does not survive). He did leave many records but there is never any mention of a son.

He may be an ancestor of Dolly Payne, wife of President James Madison.

The LDS Ancestral File [compiled by the Medieval Families Unit] states that John's father is (Capt.) Alexander FLEMING (b. abt 1612 in Cumbarnauld, Lanarkshire, Scotland - d. 30 Dec 1668 - 13 Mar 1668/9 in Rappahanock Co. VA), merchant, Burgess and Guild Brother of Glasgow, admitted 2 Apr 1646 [who could possibly be a son of "Sir Thomas" or the brother of John, sixth Earl -- see below.] Archibald F. Bennett [in "Finding your Forefathers in America", Salt Lake City, Utah: Bookcraft Company, 1957, pp. 122-130] quotes some earlier family admissions from Volume 56, The Scottish Record Society, Records of the Burgesses and Guild Brethren of Glasgow, 1573-1730: "On 10 April 1629 the following were admitted as Burgesses and Freeman, gratis: John FLEMING lord (This would be the later 3rd Earl.); Alexander FLEMING his brother; William FLEMING, also his brother; Alexander FLEMING, their uncle; Patrick FLEMING, in Balloch; Malcolm FLEMING, servitor to John, Earl of Wigtown; Robert FLEMING, servitor to John, Earl of Wigtown (son of Malcolm FLEMING of Woodelie); John FLEMING, servitor to Earl of Wigtown."

Captain Alexander FLEMING married to Elsbeth (or Elizabeth) ANDERSON (b. abt. 1614 of Glasgow, Scotland - 6 Oct 1656 - 5 Jul 1658 in Rappahannock Co. VA), a daughter of William ANDERSON, probably the Marion BELL and William ANDERSON (b. 1588), who registered a testament in Glasgow 10 Nov 1623. After his wife's death, he married secondly (1659) Ursula, widow of John BROWN of Accomac Co., and thirdly Joyce (Jones) HOSKINS (b. 1613), the rich and attractive widow of Anthony HOSKINS of Accomac Co. and the daughter of Capt. William JONES. On 4 Sep 1667, Capt. Alexander bought 560 acres in the freshes of Rappahannock Co. He left his estate "Westphalia" to his wife Joyce FLEMING, Executrix, and other properties to his daughters Alexia and Elizabeth. The title "Captain" is clearly a VA one, probably related to the militia, but perhaps like KY Col., a matter of recognition, property and deference.

Captain Alexander(1)Fleming was born about 1612, Larnock, Scotland. He is said to come to Virginia 1649-1650. Alexander Fleming patented 5790 acres between 1658-1667 on both sides of the Rappahannock River. He married, first in Scotland about 1631, Elizabeth (Elspet) Anderson, daughter of William Anderson. "Alexander Fleming died between 30, December, 1668 and 13 March, 1668-9 in Rappahannock County, Virginia." Captain Alexander W (1) Fleming was the second son of John Fleming (second Earl of Wigtownin Scotland, Seventh Lord Fleming) and Lady Margaret Livingston (daughter of Alexander Livingston) ( The Scots Peerage, Edited by Sir James Balfour Paul, Vol 8 p548-550 published by David Douglas, Edinburgh, Scotland; Finding Your Forefathers in America, A.F.Bennett 1957 Chapter 11, pp 123,126,128.)

Notes for Lieut. Francis Mason:

Lt. Francis Mason came to America, with his wife, Mary, in 1613. They were married in England and had one child when they came.

Francis Mason and Alice Mason were identified among settlers living at "Elizabeth Cittie" in Virginia, February 7, 1624/5

Mason, Francis . . . . . . . . . 40 Arrived on the John and Francis in 1613

Mason, Alice . . . . . . . . . . 26 Arrived on the Margett and John in 1622

Mason, Francis . . . . . . . . . -- Born in Virginia

Another report indicates arrived c 1623 with wife, Mary, and Daughter, Anne, but there is no evidence to support this (see below).

muster of inhabitance of Basse Choice in VA on 2-4-1624 inc Francis Mason aged 40 who came in the John and Francis in 1613, Alice Mason, aged 26 came in the Margaret and John in 1622 and Francis Mason, Jr. b in VA (son of Mason 1st wife).

The Lower Norfolk Masons. [Notes with respect to the Early Representatives.] The following is copied from the Baltimore Sun of April 9, 1905: Two depositions, from Lieut. Francis Mason, are quoted. Concerning his age, the statement that he was 42 in 1637 and, therefore, born in 1595, is generally accepted. [Note he would have been married at age 11 in England.] Another that he was 40 in 1628, or seven years older.

Holten is on record that the emigrant came over on the "John and Francis," with his wife, Mary, and daughter, Ann, in 1613. The first date would have made him 18; the latter, therefore, seems the more probable. A son, Francis, was born in Virginia, but Mr. Ellis, in the "Virginia Historical Magazine," Volume II, was of the opinion that both his son and daughter died in early infancy, thus finding no relationship between the Surry and Norfolk families. In the year 1623, ten years after emigration, Lieut. Francis Mason's wife was Alice, the mother of a son and daughter, Lemuel and Elizabeth, and when he died, in 1648, his wife, Alice, and son, Lemuel, administered on his estate.

He was magistrate, justice and vestryman of Lower Norfolk. His second wife came to Virginia in 1622, in the "Margaret and John." She was born 1626 (1626) (Dep.). There are other accounts, which affirm that an early Francis and James were half brothers of Colonel Lemuel Mason. The destruction of carly records must ever render allsuch investigation well-nigh hopeless. And just here, it may be remarked that James Mason was as prominent in Surry as was Lemuel in Lower Norfolk. He held large grants there, as well as in lsle of Wight, and in 1652 was a member of the Council.

"It has been published in the past that William Stafford married a Frances Mason ... this is erroneous ... it is also much accepted that William Stafford married Ann Mason, the daughter of Lt. Francis Mason who accompanied he and his wife to Virginia in 1613. There is no evidence to show that this is indeed a fact." William Stafford of Virginia, a book on CD published jointly by Richard J. Saunders saundrj@verizon.net and Jean Robinson phatmom@snet.net and shared with me in 2003.

They continue ; extracts, verbatim unless otherwise indicated using brackets [ ] :

"There may have been ... documents in early Virginia records that showed the existence of children ... none of these documents are known to exist today."

"Some time before 1626, Francis Mason was assigned 50 acres of land in Charles City, but he never settled this. After a trip to England, for which he was granted passage on October 1626, he returned to Virginia and settled in that part of Elizabeth City which, in 1636, became New Norfolk County, where his land is of record 1635, in a patent to Thomas Willoughby, and in 1636 in one to William Julian. An act of Assembly, Jan. 6, 1639/40 named him as a tobacco viewer for the Western Branch to Elizabeth River."

"His plantation may be identified through the patent issued Aug. 31, 1642 to Lieut. Francis (1) Mason for 1,250 acres at "Hogpen Point," near land of Capt. Thomas Willoughby. His headrights included Francis Mason, Mary Mason his first wife, Ann Mason his daughter, and Alice Gany his second wife ..."

[As of 1642, therefore, a daughter Ann was either single, or this record was carried forward from a time when she was single.]

"from Lower Norfolk County Records, WIlls and Deeds C, December 15th 1651:

"Recorded 15 Jan 1651/1. Dated 7 Nov 1648. Agreement betw Alice Mason, widow and relict of Mr. Francis Mason, dec'd and Mr. Lemuell Mason of the one part and Mr. James Thelaball of the other part.

"From Virginia, Prominent Families, Volume II, Chapter XVII, The Mason Family -- The Lower Norfolk Masons, written by Fanny B. Hunter. Hunter includes a citing of Mr. Ellis, which first appeared in the "Virginia Historical Magazine" Volume II. Mr. Ellis was of the opinion that two of Lieutenant Francis Mason's children, Ann Mason and Francis Mason, died before reaching the age of 18."

7561. Anne Cox, born Bef. 1605 in Boxley, Kent; died 29 Feb 1631/32 in Kent. She was the daughter of 15122. John Cox and 15123. Anne Lee.

Notes for Rev. Haute Wiatt:

"Rev. Haute Wyatt, was born 1696 in Boxley, Kent County, England. He matriculated at Queens College, Oxford, Oct 25, 1611 and was a student at Grays Inn. He was later ordained a priest in the Church of England. At a Court held in London for Virginia, July 16, 1621 "Sir Francis Wyatt's brother was entertained as minister,"and was mentioned as a good divine and Master of Arts, and very willing to go with him on the present voyage to Virginia. He went to Virginia where his brother Sir Francis Wyatt was appointed Governor. Haute Wyatt and Francis Wyatt arrived Oct 1621 at the James River with a fleet of 9 ships. They remained until 1625 when they were called home on the death of their father. Haute did not return. Haute Wyatt married February 6, 1818 to Barbara Elizbeth Mitford by which he had two sons, George and Edward. It appears that the family did not go to Virginia with him as they do not appear on the census of 1623. He returned to England and another son Thomas was born in 1626 and died in April 1627 at Boxley. Barbara Elizabeth died Oct 31, 1626 a few weeks after the birth of her son. Haute then married Anne, whose surname was said to be Cocke,(Cox) by one source, another source says it was Lee. A son John born in 1630 and a daughter Anne was born before her death in February. 1631. Rev. Haute became minister of Marston Chapel in 1629 and became Vicar of Boxley in 1632 where he served until his death on July 31, 1638. he was buried in the Chancel of Boxley Church. His mother Lady Jane Finch Wyatt was living with him and caring for his children. He left no will and she appeared in the Archdeaconry Court of Canterbury, Oct. 26, 1638 and petitioned for administration of the estate of her son, "Mr. Haute Wyatt, late Vicar of Boxley in Kent." In the reports of administration filed by Lady Jane, rent due to Sir Francis Wyatt of Boxley was listed and also money paid out in behalf of Haute Waytt's children namely, "George, age 19; Edward, age 17; John, age 10; and Anne age 7." In the church at Boxley there is a memorial erected by Edwin Wyatt who died in1714 to the memory of several members of his family. The epitaph names Rev. Hawte Wyatt and states that he had issue now living in Virginia.

The following is from "PLANTAGENET ANCESTRY OF 17TH CENTURY COLONISTS", by David Faris, 1996., p. 289.

"Rev. Hawte Wyatt, born 1596, matriculated Queen's College, Oxford, 25 Oct. 1611, aged seventeen, accompanied his brother on the GEORGIA arriving 18 Nov. 1621, served as minister of Jamestown from

Haute, died vicar of Boxley Parish, Kent Co., England, and had issue living in Virginia."

"Knight and Governor; of England and Virginia, b. 1575 at Allington Castle; d. Aug. 1644 at the same place; was appointed Governor of the Virginia Colony, and arrived on the Georgia Nov. 18, 1621; he was the first Governor under the new ordinance and constitution enacted by the London Company. Upon his arrival in the Colony, he organized the first Legislative body, known as the "General Assembly of Virginia." By the disloyalty in the Colony, the London Co. depposed Sir Francis Wyatt, but King Charles I took the government of the Colony into his own hands, an at once reappointed Sir Francis Wyatt, who retained the office of Governor. It was during his administration that the terrible Indian Massacre occurred, in 1622, and in 1623, he fought a battle with the Indians, commanding the Virginians in person; the battle took place on the York and Pamnukey Rivers; he served as Governor from 1621 to 1627, when he returned to England to settle up his father's estate, and upon his return to the Colony in 1639 he was again appointed Governor, and served until 1641. He was also an influential member of the King's Council, and was a supporter of the Established Church. He was the first to change the spelling from Wiatt to Wyatt; he m.

Notes for Thomas Wyatt II:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Wyatt_the_younger

"The Rebel" ; He was beheaded for taking in leading the rebellion against Mary dau. of Henry VIII for marrying the Spanish Prince, who was Roman Catholic.

SIR THOMAS WYATT, also spelled Wyat (b. c. 1521 - - d. April 22, 1554, London), an English soldier and conspirator who led an unsuccessful rebellion against Queen Mary, probably the most formidable uprising ever faced by a Tudor Monarch.

Thomas Wyatt, as a young man he acquitted a reputation for recklessness, and in 1543 he was briefly imprisoned for taking part in a London street riot. from 1543 to 1549 or 1550, he served in the army abroad - - especially in France - - achieving recognition as a skillful and daring officer.

Wyatt then returned to England and in 1551 served as sheriff in Kent, where he formed his own rudimentary military organization. On King Edward VI's death (July 1553) he supported the accession of Mary, a Roman Catholic, but by the end of the year he turned against the Queen, considering her proposed marriage to the future king Philip 11 of Spain to be an affront to England's national honor. He accordingly joined several others, including Lady Jane Grey's father, the Duke of Suffolk, in a conspiracy against the crown. The plot was revealed to mary's lord chancellor, Stephen Gardiner, by the Earl of Devon, one of the conspirators, at the end of January 1554, with the result that of the conspirators only Wyatt succeeded in raising an army. At first the government offered to negotiate with him, but it soon decided to suppress the insurgents. A force under the command of Thomas Howard, the aged duke of Norfolk, was sent to put down the rebellion, largely defected to Wyatt.

On February 3, 1554, Wyatt entered the outskirts of London with some 3,000 men. He advanced swiftly to the center of the city, but his troops became disheartened when the populace did not join their cause. Confronted by the royal forces, Mary's partisans made strenuous but unsuccessful efforts to persuade him to implicate Princess (afterward Queen) Elizabeth in the conspiracy. After his death he and his followers were widely regarded as patriots and martyrs by a populace that was becoming increasingly repelled by Mary's persecution of Protestants.

Notes for John Graham:

3rd Earl of Montrose " ... was one of the most powerful noblemen in Scotland in his own day, and was deeply involved in the plots and intrigues of the early part of the reign of James VI. He assisted the profligate Earl of Arran in bringing the Regent Morton to the block, which led to a feud between him and the Douglases. He twice held the office of High Treasurer of Scotland, and was appointed Lord Chancellor in 1599. After the accession of James to the throne of England, the Earl was nominated Lord High Commissioner to the Parliament which met at Edinburgh, 10th April, 1604. On resigning the office of Chancellor, a patent was granted to him by the King, in December of the year, appointing him Viceroy of Scotland for life, with a pension of L2,000 Scots. He presided at the meeting of the Estates at Perth, 9th July, 1606, which passed the ecclesastical enactments termed the Five Articles of Perth, so obnoxious to the Presbyterian party. At his death in 1608, the King thought fit to order that the Earl, in consequence of his high position, should be buried with peculiar pomp and splendour, and promised to give forty thousand merks to cover the expense. But the promises of James in regard to pecuniary matters were not often performed. The money was never paid, and the costly funereal ceremonial imposed a heavy burden on the Earl's son."

The Great Historical Families of Scotland, James TaylorThird Earl of Montrose

Children of John Graham and Jean Drummond are:

i. John Graham, born 1573 in Kincardine, Blackford, Perthshire; died 14 Nov 1626 in of Montrose; married Margaret Ruthven 12 Dec 1593; born Aft. 1573 in of Gowrie.

Notes for John Graham:

4th Earl of Montrose (1608-1626); Chancellor of Scotland

" ... showed, by an incident mentioned in Birrel's Diary, that in his youth the hot blood of the Grahams ran in his veins, though in his mature years he was quite, peaceful, and prudent in his conduct. '1595, the 19th of January, the young Earle of Montroes [at this time he was only Lord Graham] fought ane combate with Sir James Sandilands at the Salt Trone of Edinburgh, thinking to have revengit the slauchter of his cousine, Mr. Johne Graham.' This Earl lived the retired life of a country gentleman, and seems to have been very domestic in all his havits. It appears from the family accounts that he amused himself with archery and golfing, and indulged a good deal in the use of tobacco. He was appointed President of the Council in July, 1626, and died 14th November of the same year, in the prime of his life. But his burial was not 'accompleissit' until the 3rd of January, 'and the haill friends remainet in Kincardin thereafter, sateling his Lordship's affairs, till Soinday, the 7th of January.' An account-book which has been preserved shows the enormous expense that was incurred in 'accompleissing' the burial, and in entertaining for eight weeks the array of kinsmen who had congregated in the family mansion to do honour to the obsequies of the deceased nobleman. They feasted upon 'Venison, Beif, Muttoune, Lamb, Veill, Geis, Caponis,' and other poultry; and of game and wildfowl 'Capercailzies, Black Cokis, and Ethe henis, Termaganis, Muir foulls, Wodcoks, Peitrecks [partridges], Plewvers, and Birsall foulls,' in great abundance. Of liquors there were consumed one puncheon of 'claret wyn' and one puncheon of 'quhyt wyn,' besides nine gallons of 'Ester aill.' This protracted hospitality and costly mode of performing funerals may account for the sumptuary laws frequently enacted by the Scottish Estates, for the purpose of limiting the ruinous expenses incurred on such occasions. No less than three years' rental of the estate of the deceased has sometimes been spent in 'accompleissing' his burial."

ii. Francis Hay, born Abt. 1564; died 16 Jul 1631; married Elizabeth Douglas Abt. 1590; born Abt. 1566.

Notes for Francis Hay:

8th Earl of Erroll

" ... Francis, eighth Earl, was one of the leaders of the Popish faction during the early years of James VI, and along with the Earls of Huntly, Crawford, Angus, and Bothwell, took up arms against his sovereign for the purpose of promoting the interests of the Romish party in Scotland. Errol and his fellow-conspirators repeatedly entered into a treasonable correspondence with Philip of Spain and the Duke of Parma, with a view to the invasion of the country, and they even levied a powerful force, with which they defeated, at Glenlivet, 15th October, 1594, the royal army, commanded by the Earl of Argyll. Errol fled to the Continent, and was forfeited by the Parliament and excommunicated by the Church. He was ultimately allowed to return home, was relieved from his civil and political disabilities, reconciled to the Court, and received into favour by James VI. He seems to have been always liked by the King, and he was one of the commissoiners nominated by the Parliament, in 1604, to treat of a union between Scotland and England. 'He was,' says Sir Robert Douglas, 'a truly noble man, of a great and courageous spirit, who had great troubles in his time, which he stoutly and honourably carried; and now in favour, died in peace with God and man, and a loyal subject to the King, to the great grief of his friends.' The Earl died at his ancestral castle of Slains, 16th July, 1631, and on his deathbed gave directions that, instead of the costly funeral usual at that day in the case of great nobles, he should be buried privately in the church of that place, and that the calculated expense of a showy 'earthing up' be distributed among the poor on his estate, which was accordingly done. The Earl was three times married, but left issue only by his third wife, a daughter of the Earl of Morton, who bore to him three sons and eight daughters."

Notes for Sir Thomas Wyatt:

Also see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Wyatt_%28poet%29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allington_Castle

SIR THOMAS WYATT also spelled Wyat (b. 1503, Allington, near Maidstone, Kent England - - d. Oct. 6, 1542, Sherborne, Dorset), poet who introduced the Italian sonnet and terza rima verse form and the French rondeau into English literature.

Wyatt was educated at St. John's, Cambridge, and became a member of the court circle of Henry VIII, where he seems to have been popular and admired for his attractive appearance and skill in music, languages, and arms. During his career, he served a number of diplomatic missions and was knighted in 1537, but his fame rests on his poetic achievement, particularly his songs. His poems are unusual for their time in carrying a strong sense of individuality. They consist of "Certayne Psalmes" . . . drawen into Englysghe meter" (1557); and songs identified as manuscript, published in the 19th- and 20th-century editions.

From: "Colonial Families of the Southern States of America" by Stella Pickett Hardy:

"Sir Thomas Wiatt, of Allington Castle, Kent Co., England, b. about 1503; d. Oct. 11, 1542 at Sherbourne; entered St. John's College, Cambridge, in 1515, received his B.A. in 1518, and M. A. in 1520; officiated for his father, as Ewerer at the Coronation of Ann Boleyn, in 1533, and in consequence fell into temporary disgrace with the King on her account. He was High Sheriff of Kent Co. in 1537, and the same year he was sent as Minister to Spain; was charged with treasonable correspondence with Cardinal Pole, and was placed under arrest in 1540 or 1541. Of this charge he was soon acquitted and restored to high favor with Henry VIII, who bestowed upon him Allington Castle, in Allington on the Medway, Cadnor Castle, Abbosts Court, Coome Manor, the Manor of Hoo, all in Kent Co. and broad lands and estates in Maidstone, Kent and other counties. He was a distinguished poet, his works which consisted of love elegies and odes have been greatly admired, and were first publisshed with those of Lord Surrey."

Undoubtedly the leader and the acknowledged master of ' the company of courtly makers,' who, in the reign of Henry VIII, under Italian influence, transformed the character of English poetry. He took bachelor's degree at Cambridge at 15; was knighted in 1536, and was twice sent as ambassador to the Emperor (Charles V), a strong proof of his repute as a statesman and diplomatist" (Encyclopedia Britt.).

Notes for Sir Malcolm Fleming:

3rd Lord Fleming

Tracing backward, the FLEMING Lords in Scotland were STUART courtiers, and suffered their ups and downs with the Stuarts. Malcolm, the third Lord FLEMING, was a well known retainer who did not live long. He accompanied King James V in his matrimonial expedition to France in Aug 1537, was made prisoner at the rout of Solway in Nov 1542, was released after paying a ransom of 1000 merks [sic] sterling on 1 Jul 1543, but died at the Battle of Pinkie Clough, 10 Sep 1547. However, Lady Janet had quite a colorful career as a widow of the blood royal. Adjudged a suitable governess, she accompanied the six-year-old Mary Queen of Scots to France in 1548 for her betrothal to the Dauphin. In the train were "four Marys": her daughter, Mary FLEMING and three other girls of the same age, all named Mary. At the French court Lady Janet caught the eye of King Henry II, father of the Dauphin, and in due course of time they had an illegitimate son named Henry [Harry de Valois]. This indiscretion aroused the enmity of Henry II's wife, Catherine de Medici and, perhaps more importantly, of his mistress Diane de Poitiers, who brooked no interlopers. Lady Janet was sent packing back to Scotland. "The four Marys" remained attached to the ill-fated Queen of Scots throughout her life, and the name of Mary FLEMING is said to have been perpetuated in the family from that time forward....

Notes for Margaret Fleming:

Daughter of 3rd Lord Fleming. Married 1st Robert Graham, 2nd Thomas Erskine, 3rd Sir John Stewart, the 4th Earl Atholl.

Margaret was reputed to have magical powers, and was said to have cast the pains of childbirth from the Queen of James VI STUART upon Margaret BEATON, daughter of John BEATON of Creich, the wife of Arthur FORBES of Rires.

Scottish witches "claimed to be able to cause and to prevent pregnancy, to cause and prevent easy delivery, and to cast the labour-pains on an animal or a human being" (often on the husband, which may account for some of their unpopularity). Margaret FLEMING was thus probably a member of the Dianist cult which was considered by James VI to be one of the most dangerous menaces to his personal safety and his throne.

Notes for David Drummond:

"On the 5th of January, 1535, King James V entered into an obligation to infeft David, Second Lord Drummond, in all the lands which had belonged to his great-grandfather, John, the first lord, and which were in the King's hands by reason of escheat and forfeiture, through the accusation brought against John, Lord Drummond, for the treasonable and violent putting of hands on the King's officer then called Lyon King-of-Arms. Certain specified lands, however, were excepted -- viz., Innerpeffrey, Foirdow, Aucterarder, Dalquhenzie and Glencoyth, with the patronage of the provostry and chaplaincy of Innerpeffrey, which were to be given by the King to John Drummond of Innerpeffrey, and to the King's sister, Margaret, Lady Gordon, his spouse. It was stipulated in the obligation that David, Lord Drummond, was to marry Margaret Stewart, daughter of Margaret, Lady Gordon. The instrument of infeftment, dated 1st and 2nd November, 1542, affords the most positive proof of the distinction between the old and new possessions of Drummond in Stirlingshire and Drommane in Strathern, and the two were for the first time, by a charter dated 25th October, 1542, 'united, erected, and incorporated into a free barony, to be called in all tymes to cum the Barony of Drummen.' It is evident, then, that 'whatever lands in the Lennox the earlier members of the house of Drummond might have held, such certainly did not comprehend the lands bearing their own name.' The lands of Drummond were sold by the Earl of Perth, in 1631, to William, Earl of Strathern and Menteith. The eighth and last Earl entailed them upon James, Marquis of Montrose, and they have ever since formed part of the Montrose estates."

" [John, first Lord Drummond's son and grandson pre-deceasing him, ] ... and in consequence the first Lord Drummond was succeeded by his great-grandson David, who became second Lord Drummond. He was a zealous adherent of Queen Mary. His second son, James, Lord Maderty, was ancestor of the Viscounts Strathallan.

Children of David Drummond and Lilias Ruthven are:

i. Patrick Drummond, born 1550; died 1602; married Lady Elizabeth Lindsay 21 Oct 1572; born Aft. 1550; died May 1585.

Notes for Patrick Drummond:

3rd Lord Drummond

" ... embraced the Protestant religion."

The great beauty, ability, and virtues of his daughter, the Countess of Roxburgh, were celebrated in glowing strains by the poet Daniel, and she was held in such high estimation by James VI that he made choice of her to be the governess of his daughters. The Drummonds were a courtly family, and throughout their whole career were conspicuous for their attachment to the throne. They fought gallantly on the royal side, under Montrose, in the Great Civil War, and suffered severely for their loyalty. More fortunate, however, than most of the Royalist nobles, they were liberally rewarded at the Resotation for their fidelity to the crown."

ii. James Drummond, born Aft. 1540 in Stobhall; died Sep 1623; married Jane Chisholme; born Aft. 1558 in Cromlix, Dunblane, Perthsire, Scotland; died Nov 1589.

Notes for James Drummond:

1st Baron Maderty

"[David's] second son, James, Lord Maderty, was ancestor of the Viscounts Strathallan."

"The Drummonds of Strathallan are descended from James Drummond, second son of David, second Lord Drummond. He was educated along with James VI, with whom he seems to have been a favourite through life, and was appointed one of the Gentlemen of the Royal Bedchamber in 1585. He was present with James at Perth, 5th August, 1600, when the Earl of Gowrie and his brother lost their lives in their attempt to obtain possession of the King's person. He obtained the office of commendator of the Abbey of Inchaffray, which was founded A.D. 1200 by Gilbert, Earl of Strathern, and his Countess, Matilda. Maurice, abbot of this religious house, was present at the Battle of Bannockburn, and, before the conflict commenced, he passes bareheaded, and barefooted, through the ranks of the Scottish army, and, holding aloft a crucific, in a few forcible words exhorted them to fight bravely for their rights and liberties. The Abbey shared the fate of the other monastic establishments of Scotland, and its lands were formed into a temporal barony in favour of James Drummond, wh owas raised to the peerage 31st January, 1609, by the title of Lord Madderty, the name of teh parish in which Inchaffray is situated. He obtained the lands of Inverpeffray also, by his mafrriage with the heiress -- a daughter of Sir James Chisholme of Cromlix -- which descended to her through her mother from Sir James Drummond."

Notes for Sir John Murray:

v. Anne Drummond, born Abt. 1560; married John Erskine; born Abt. 1556; died 14 Dec 1634.

Notes for John Erskine:

2nd/23rd Earl of Mar

"The family attained its highest lustre under the Regen'ts son, John, second Earl of Mar of the name of Erskine, the famous 'Jock o' the Schlaits' (slates), a name given him by James VI, his playfellow and a pupil along with him and his cousins, sons of Erskine of Gogar, of the learned and severe pedagogue, George Buchanan, under the superintendence of the Countess of Mar. He was one of the nobles who took part in the Raid of Ruthven in 1582, and was, in consequence, deprived of his office of Governor of Stirling Castle -- which was conferred on the royal favourite Arran -- and was obliged to take refuge in Ireland. An unsuccessful attempt to regain his position in 1584 made it necessary for the Earl to retire into England; but in November of the following year, he and the other banished lords re-entered Scotland and, at the head of eight thousand men, took possession of Stirling Castle and the person of the King, and expelled Arran from the Court.

"From this time forward the Earl of Mar was one of the King's most trusty counsellors and intimate friends, down to the end of his career. In July, 1595, he was formally entrusted by James with the custody and education of Prince Henry, by a warrent under the King's own hand, being the fifth of the heirs to the throne who had been committed to the charge of an Erskine. He was sent ambassador to England in 1601, and by his dexterous management contributed not a little to facilitate the peaceable accession of James to the English throne. A quarrel took place between the Earl and Queen Anne respecting the custody of Prince Henry, but James firmly maintained the claim of his friend in opposition to the angry demand of his wife, who never forgave the Earl for resisting her wishes. Mar, in return, steadily supported the policy of the King in his quarrels with the Scottish clergy, and voted for the 'Five Articles of Perth,' though he was well aware how obnoxious they were to the people of Scotland. In 1616 the Earl was apointed to the office of Lord High Treasurer, which he held till 1620, and became the most powerful man in the kingdom.

"After the death of his first wife, Anne, daughter of David, Lord Drummond, the Earl fell ardently in love with Lady Mary Stewart, the daughter of the Duke of Lennox, the ill-fated royal favourite and cousin of the king. As he was older than this French beauty, and had already a son and heir, she at first positively refused to marry him, remarking that 'Anne Drummond's bairn would be Earl of Mar, but that hers would just be Maister Erskine.' 'Being of a hawtie spirit,' says Lord Somerville, 'she disdained that the children begotten upon her should be any ways inferior, either as to honour or estate, to the children of the first marriage. She leaves nae means unessayed to advance their fortunes.'

"The Earl took her rejection of his suit so much to heart as to become seriously ill; but the King strove to comfort him, and, in his homely style of speech said, 'By my saul, Jock, ye sanna dee for ony lass in a' the land.' He was awre that the main cause of the lady's refusal to marry his friend was her knowledge of the fact that the Earl's son by his first wife would inherit his titles as well as his estates, and he informed her that if she married Mar, and bore him a son, he should also be made a peer. The inducement thus held out by his Majesty removed Lady Mary's scruples, and James was as good as his word. He created the Earl Lord Cardross, bestowing upon him at the same time the barony of that name, with the unusual privilege of authority to assign both the barony and the title to any of his sons whom he might choose. The Earl was the father of three peers, and the father-in-law of four powerful earls. Lady Mary Stewart bore him five sons and four daughters."

"The Earl died at Stirling Castle, 14th December, 1634, at the age of seventy-seven, and was interred at Alloa. Soctt of Scotstarvit says of his death, 'His chief delight was in hunting; and he procured by Act of Parliament that none should hunt within divers miles of the King's house. Yet often that which is most pleasant to a man is his overthrow; for, walking in his own hall, a dog cast him off his feet and lamed his leg, of which he died: and, at his burial, a hare having run through the company, his special chamberlain, Alexander Stirling, fell off his horse and broke his neck.'

"It is said that there are some of the descendants of the Lord Treasurer who, on account of this casualty, are to this day chary of meeting an accidental hare."

Notes for Knight Henry Wiat:

From: "Colonial Families of the Southern States of America" by Stella Pickett Hardy:

"Sir Henry Wiatt of Kent Co., England, who for his friendship to Henry VII underwent at the hand of Richard III severe improsinment, and who was saved from starvation by a cat which brought him food. The monumental inscription in Boxley Church to the Wiatt family states this fact, and so does one of the "Wiat Mss." in possession of Lord Romney, the present representative of the Wiatt family in England. The latter says "He was imprisoned often; once in a cold and narrow Tower, where he had neither bed to lie on, nor clothes sufficient to warm him, nor meat for his mouth; he had starved there had not god -- sent -- a cat to feed and warm him. It was his own relation from whom I had it. A cat came one day down into the dungeon unto him, and as it were, offered herself to him; he was glad of her, laid her in his bosom, to warm him, and by making much of her won her love. After this she would come every day unto him diverse times; and when she could get one bring him a pigeon -- the keeper -- dressed for him time to time such pigeons as his Acater, the cat, provided for him; Sir Henry in his prosperity would ever make much of a cat, and you will not find a picture of him anywhere, but like Sir Christopher Hatton with his dog, with his cat beside him." After the usurper Richard fell on Bosworth field, Sir Henry Wiatt was raised to the highest honors Knight of Bart, Knight of Banneret, Privy Councilor, etc; and he was executor of King Henry VII."

Sir Henry Wyatt, of Allington Castle, Kent, England, "was a prominent figure at the Court of Henry VIII (1495-1509), and accompanied him to the Field of the Cloth of Gold" (Encyclopedia Britt.

Children of Henry Wiat and Anne Skinner are:

60480 i. Sir Thomas Wyatt, born 1503 in Allington Castle, near Maidstone, Kent; died 11 Oct 1542 in Sherborne, Dorset; married Elizabeth Brooke.

ii. Margaret Wyatt, born Abt. 1506 in Allington Castle, Kent; died Abt. 1543; married Sir Anthony Lee Abt. 1533 in Allington Castle, Kent; born Bef. 1506 in Burston, Buckinghamshire; died Abt. 1550 in Quarendon, Buckinghamshire.

Notes for Margaret Wyatt:

Favourite of Queen Anne Boleyn

Margaret was one of Anne's chief ladies-in-waiting, and accompanied her to Calais, France in 1532, where it is presumed Anne and Henry VIII made secret plans to marry in the immediate future. It is known that Anne had a lady-in-waiting who "she loves as a sister," and it has been suggested that this lady was Margaret. She was certainly part of the queen's circle of favorites. As Mistress of the Queen's Wardrobe, she would presumably have played a leading part in the decadent social life at court in the mid-1530s, which was fueled by the extravagance of Henry and Anne.

Lady Margaret was sent to attend her royal mistress in the Tower of London in May 1536 when the Queen was arrested on false charges of adultery, treason, and incest. Margaret also attended Anne on the scaffold on May 19, and even received the last gift of a prayer book from her. After Anne was beheaded, Margaret acted as chief mourner at her small funeral. Anne had written a short farewell to Margaret inside the prayer book:

"Remember me when you do pray,

that hope doth lead from day to day."

Notes for John Fleming:

2nd Lord, Chamberlain of Scotland http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Pointe/3043/blkshp.html

Thanks to: kimis@bellsouth.net Kati Smith.

John Fleming (living 1493), Lord Fleming quardian of the king. (As alleged by Queen Margaret) "The Lord Fleming for evil will that he had to his wife, caused to poison three sisters and one of them was his wife and this is known of truth in all Scotland." (I read in another place that he poisoned them at tea. One count said the wife had an affair with the king, the other said it was her sister Margaret.) He was later assassinated.

John Fleming was served heir to his brother Sir David Fleming in the lands of Dunbulls on May 2, 1482, and in the lands of Auchtermony March 30, 1490 . He was one of the nobles who opposed James III, Seized the young prince and proclaimed him King in 1488. He married first, before May 5, 1496, Eupheme Drummond, fifth daughter of David, Lord Drummond. She was poisoned with her two sisters after April 1502. John Fleming, second Lord Fleming, was appointed by Parliament one of three nobles to abide with the king, each for three months. He was assassinated while hawking on November 1, 1524 by John Tweedie, James Tweedie, his son and others. He was the son of Sir Malcolm Fleming and Eupheme Livingston. ( The Scots Peerage, Edited by Sir James Balfour Paul, Vol 8, pp534-537)

John, second Lord Fleming, who when hawking in Glenholm was assassinated by John Tweedie of Drumelzier (1524).

John, second Lord Fleming, claimed the superiority of Fruid and the ward and marriage of Katherine Fraser, who not only held Fruid, but also Mossfennan and lands in Glenholm. His design was that she should marry his son Malcolm and it has been said that this marriage actually took place. But that is unlikely.

John Tweedie of Drumelzier cherished the same design for his nephew James, and this was quite natural, for the two families were friendly, and in 1521 Elizabeth Douglas, the widow of William Fraser, Katherine's grand-father, had disponed to Tweedie the rents of Fruid and Mossfennan during the nonage of her bairns. On 1st November, 1524, Lord Fleming, with his eldest son and heir Malcolm, and a small retinue, was hawking in Glenholm, about two or three miles from Drumelzier. There he was met or waylaid by John Tweedie and his relatives and friends to the number of about fifty. Words passed and then blows, and Lord Fleming was killed, and Malcolm, his eldest son, was captured. This Malcolm obtained his liberty by consenting to the marriage of Katherine with James Tweedie; and his brother Malcolm, along with Robert Stewart, younger of Minto, and William Fleming of Boghall, were imprisoned in the 'Place of Drumelzier' as pledges for the fulfilment of the contract. Katherine, with the writs of her lands, was handed over, and she was promptly married to James Tweedie. Then the law came into operation, and the Tweedies attempted to pacify the angry Flemings. At first they were so far successful that an 'assythment' was arranged on 23rd November under which the Laird of Drumelzier and his accomplices went to the Cross of Peebles in their shirts - 'sark alane' - offered their naked swords to Lord Fleming and his kin, and bound themselves to be his servants. But that was not an end of the matter. The Privy Council took it up, and Tweedie was ordained to found a chaplainry in the church of Biggar, with a yearly stipend of £40 from his lands, for prayers for the soul of the dead Lord Fleming. James Tweedie, the heir, and other persons guilty of the slaughter, were banished for three years. But still the feud went on, On 8th August, 1525, Malcolm, Lord Fleming, apprised for 8000 merks the greater part of Tweedie's lands: (1) Easter Drumelzier, with the Place of Tinnies, Hopkailzie, half of Halmyre, and Deanshouses, extending in whole to 210 merks of yearly value; (2) Wester Drumelzier with its Place, extending to £40 yearly, which belonged to Tweedie's son James; and (3) Glenbreck and Glenumford in Peeblesshire, and Clifton in Roxburghshire, extending to 100 merks yearly. Notwithstanding this, John Tweedie did not give up his home, and on 27th September, 1526, Lord Fleming obtained a decree of delivery of the lands and fortalice of Drumelzier. On 6th June of the following year a respite for the crime for nineteen years was granted to Tweedie and thirteen others, and a settlement was finally reached in 1531, when Katherine, the Lady of Fruid, handed over to Lord Fleming all her possessions in the county, with the exception of Fruid itself, and the processes and apprisings against the Tweedies were then withdrawn.

128963. Agnes Stewart, born Abt. 1485; died Feb 1556/57. She was the daughter of 257926. Sir James Stewart and 257927. Margaret Gray.

Notes for James IV King of Scotland:

A Spanish visitor to Scotland described the king as "of noble stature, neither tall nor short, and as handsome in complexion and shape as a man can be. He speaks the following languages: Latin, very well; French, German, Flemish, Italian and Spanish. He is courageous, even more so than a king should be".

In 1488 when James IV became king, he was an adult and for the first time in several generations no regent was required to rule Scotland. Because of his fore-knowledge of the treachery causing his father's death, as penance James IV wore an iron chain around his waist. James IV tried to centralize the administration of his government and, in 1493, he subdued the last Lord of the Isles. He reformed the army and the navy and pursued an active foreign policy. At first, relations with England were strained as he supported the pretender, Perkin Warbeck, and allowed border raids even when a truce was signed.

In 1495 James IV gave legal recognition to the Clan Cameron over their lands and Kings College of Aberdeen University is established. In 1496 he decreed that all Scottish Barons and Free Holders of competent estates shall send their sons to school at the age of eight and keep them there until they learn Latin, then a further three years learning Art and Law.

Margaret Drummond had been his mistress and he had already fathered a daughter by her. However, when it was rumoured that he was going to marry her, she was poisoned together with several other members of her family. James IV was now unencumbered and, with the peace treaty of 1502, agreed to marry Margaret Tudor, daughter of King Henry VII of England.

For a while this brought peace between the two countries but this was shattered when, in 1512, Margaret's brother King Henry VIII joined the Holy Alliance against France. As an ally of France, James IV invaded northern England. His army was much larger than England's, yet at Flodden the Scots were decimated. James IV, together with the flower of all Scottish nobility, met his death, again leaving Scotland a minor for king requiring a regency.

Notes for Patrick Ruthven:

3rd Lord Ruthven

" ... has acquired an unenviable historical notoriety as a principal actor in the murder of Rizzio. He was not, however, as has been commonly supposed, a savage barbarian, but a man of literary tastes and accomplishments, who had received a learned education at the University of St. Andrews, and could use his pen as readily as his sword. Like his father, he was a zealous supporter of the Protestant cause, and was one of the leaders of the Congregation in their contest with Mary of Guise, Queen-Regent. Along with the Earl of Argyll, Lord James Stewart (afterwards Regent Moray) and other prominent Reformers, he took part in the capture of Perth, the siege of Leith, the deposition of the Regent, and other proceedings of the Protestant party, and was one of the most active and courageous in the efforts made by them to drive the French troops out of the country. His last public appearance was on the memorable night of Rizzio's murder, 9th March, 1566. He had for some months been confined to bed by an incurable disease; but at the urgent and reiterated request of Darnley, whose great-uncle he was, he agreed to assist that foolish profligate to make away with 'the villain Davie.' The most shocking and memorable feature of that tragic scene is the appearance of Turhven, 'scarcely able,' as he himself says, 'to walk twice the length of his chamber,' clad in a coat of mail covered by a loose gown, and brandishing a drawn sword in his hand; his form attenuated by wasting disease, his pale and haggard countenance showing under the helmet like that of a corpse tenanted by a demon; his vindictive purpose lurking out at his flashing eyes; his hollow, sepulchral voice; his whole appearance more like that of a friend than a man, suddenly appearing in the Queen's closet and coolly superintending the bloody deed. The savage reproaches which he heaped upon the poor Queen, after th eperpetration of t he murder, added not a little to the horror which the scene was fitted to inspire, and account for the vindictive reply of Mary, 'I trust that God, who beholdeth this from the high heavens, will avenge my wrongs, and make that which shall be born of me to root out you and your treacherous posterity.' -- a denunciationwhich was strikingly fulfulled in the total ruin of the house of Ruthven in the reign of Mary's son.

"On the escape of the Queen to Dunbar, the assassins fled in all directions. Lord Ruthven escaped to England, and died there 13th June, 1566, at the age of forty-six, just three months after the murder, having, however, before his death written a history of the affair, in which there is not one expression of regret or symptom of compunction for the crime. 'He made a Christian end,' says Calderwood, 'thanking God for the leisure granted to him to call for mercy;' but it is evident that he regarded the 'slaughter of Signior Davie' not as a crime requiring pardon, but as a meritorious deed deserving commendation."

There are also three subordinate manors, or manor-farms, in the parish of Ealing, held under the Bishop. The most ancient of these is Gunnersbury, called in old records Gonyldesbury, or Gunnyldsbury. It is not improbable that it was the residence of Gunyld, or Gunnilda, niece of King Canute, who was benished from England in the year 1044 (fn. 4) . This manor, in the reign of Edward III. was held for life by John Bray, under a grant of John de Chepham, who, in 1365, (38 Edw. III.) gave the reversion to Geossrey Schrop and his heirs (fn. 5) . In the 47th year of the same king's reign, William Gresle, clerk, and others, granted the manor of Gonyldsbury, which had formerly belonged to John de Northwych, goldsmith of London, to John Bernes and others (fn. 6) , as trustees, perhaps, for the celebrated Alice Perrers, or Pierce, whose property it appears to have been at the time of her banishment, when it was seized by the crown (fn. 7) . She afterwards procured a reversion of her sentence, and married Sir William Wyndesor, to whom this manor was granted, with other property which she had enjoyed before her attainder (fn. 8) . In the next century it belonged to Sir Thomas Frowick, Alderman of London, who died in 1485, and was buried at Ealing. His

Notes for Sir John Drummond:

created 1st Lord of Drummond.

"James IV, after his accession to the throne, granted a lease for five years, on 6th June, 1489, infavour of John, Lord Drummond, of the Crown lands of Drummond, in the shire of Stirling. On the expiry of the lease, the King made a perpetual grant of the lands to him by a charter under the Great Seal, dated 31st January, 1495, bearing that the grant was made for the good and faithful services rendered by Lord Drummond, and for the love and favour which thhe King had for him. After the death of James IV, Lord Drummond exerted all his influence to promote the marriage between his grandson, the Earl of Angus, and the widowed Queen Margaret. 'This marriage begot such jealousy,' says Lord Strathallan, 'in the rulers of the State, that the Earl of Angus was cited to appear before the Council, and Sir William Cummin of Inneralochy, Knight, Lyon King-at-Armes, appeared to deliver the charge; in doing whereof he seemed to the Lord Drummond to have approached the Earl with more boldness than discretion, for which he gave the Lyon a box on the ear; whereof he complained to John, the Governor, to give ane example of his justice at his first entry to his new office, caused imprison the Lord Drummond's person in the Castle of Blackness, and forfault his estate to the Crown for his rashness. Bot the Duke, considering, after information, what a fyne man the lord was, and how strongly allyed with most of the great families of the nation, was well pleased that the Queen-mother and Three Estates of Parliament should interceed for him, as he was soone restored to his libertie and fortune.' It would have been well for Lord Drummond if he had remembered, on this occasion, the motto of his family, 'Gang warily,' and his own maxim, in his paper of 'Constituted Advice,' 'In all our doings discretion is to be observed, otherwise nothing can be done aright.' "

"Sir John Drummond, the head of the family in the reign of James IV, held the great office of Justiciar of Scotland, was Constable of the castle of Stirling, took a prominent part in public affairs, and was created a peer 29th January, 1487-8, by the title of Lord Drummond. Although this honour, as we have seen, was conferred upon him by James III, Lord Drummond joined the party of disaffected nobles, who took up arms against their sovereign, with the Prince at their head, and was rewarded for his service after the death of the King at Sauchieburn by a lease, subsequently converted into a grant, of the Crown lands of Drummond in the county of Stirling.

"The Drummonds were not only a brave and energetic race, but they were conspicuous for their handsome persons and gallant bearing. Good looks ran in their blood, and the ladies of the family were famous for their personal beauty, which no doubt led to the great marriages made for them, generation after generation, with the Douglases, Gordons, Grahams, Crawfords, Kers, and other powerful families, which greatly increased the influence and possessions of their house."

"John, first Lord Drummond, died in 1519, upwards of eighty years of age."

Notes for Sir William Drummond:

" ... William, Master of Drummond, his second son, was unfortunately implicated in a tragic affair which brought him to the scaffold. There was a feud of long standing between the Drummonds and the Murrays, and in 1490 the Master of Drummond, having learned that a party of Murrays were levying teinds on his father's estates for George Murray, Abbot of Inchaffray, hastened to oppose them at the head of a large body of follwers, accompanied by Campbell of Dunstaffnage. The Murrays took refuge in the church of Monievaird, and the Master and his party were retiring, when a shot from the church killed one of the Dunstaffnage men. The Highlanders, in revenge for this murder, set fire to the church, and nineteen of the Murrays were burnt to death. James determined to punish the ringleaders of this shocking outrage with death, and the Master of Drummond was apprehended, tried, convicted, and executed, in spite of the earnest entreaties of his mother and sister in his behalf.

"He left a son, who predeceased his grandfather."

Notes for Margaret Drummond:

" [The Drummond family] had nearly given another royal consort to share the throne of James IV, who was devotedly attached to Margaret, eldest daughter of the first Lord Drummond, a lady of great beauty. But that king's purpose to marry her was frustrated by her death, in consequence of poison administered by some of the nobles, who were envious of the honour which was a third time about to be conferred on her family. Her two younger sisters, who accidentally partook of the poisoned dish, shared her fate. The historian of the Drummonds states that James was 'affianced to Lady Margaret, and meant to make her his queen without consulting the council. He was opposed by those nobles who wished him to wed Margaret Tudor. His clergy likewise protested against his marriage as within the prohibited degrees. Before the King could receive the dispensation, his wife (the Lady Margaret) was poisoned at breakfast at Drummond Castle, with her two sisters. Suspicion fell on the Kennedys -- a rival house, a member of which, Lady Janet Kennedy, daughter of John, Lord Kennedy, had borne a son to the King.' A slightly different account is given in 'Moerris's Dictionary,' on the authority of a manuscript history of the family of Drummond, composed in 1689. It is there stated that Lady Margaret, daughter of the first Lord Drummond, 'was so much beloved by James IV that he wished to marry her, but as they were connected by blood, and a dispensation from the Pope was required, the impatient monarch concluded a private marriage, from which clandestine union sprang a daughter, who became the wife of the Earl of Huntly. The dispensation having arrived, the King determined to celebrate his nupitals publicly; but the jealousy of some of the nobles against the house of Drummond suggested to them the cruel project of taking off Margaret by poison, in order that her family might not enjoy the glory of giving two queens to Scotland.' The three young ladies thus 'foully done to death' were buried in a vault, covered iwth three blue marble stones, in the choir of the cathedral of Dunblane."

The Great Historic Families of Scotland, James Taylor

Notes for James IV King of Scotland:

A Spanish visitor to Scotland described the king as "of noble stature, neither tall nor short, and as handsome in complexion and shape as a man can be. He speaks the following languages: Latin, very well; French, German, Flemish, Italian and Spanish. He is courageous, even more so than a king should be".

In 1488 when James IV became king, he was an adult and for the first time in several generations no regent was required to rule Scotland. Because of his fore-knowledge of the treachery causing his father's death, as penance James IV wore an iron chain around his waist. James IV tried to centralize the administration of his government and, in 1493, he subdued the last Lord of the Isles. He reformed the army and the navy and pursued an active foreign policy. At first, relations with England were strained as he supported the pretender, Perkin Warbeck, and allowed border raids even when a truce was signed.

In 1495 James IV gave legal recognition to the Clan Cameron over their lands and Kings College of Aberdeen University is established. In 1496 he decreed that all Scottish Barons and Free Holders of competent estates shall send their sons to school at the age of eight and keep them there until they learn Latin, then a further three years learning Art and Law.

Margaret Drummond had been his mistress and he had already fathered a daughter by her. However, when it was rumoured that he was going to marry her, she was poisoned together with several other members of her family. James IV was now unencumbered and, with the peace treaty of 1502, agreed to marry Margaret Tudor, daughter of King Henry VII of England.

For a while this brought peace between the two countries but this was shattered when, in 1512, Margaret's brother King Henry VIII joined the Holy Alliance against France. As an ally of France, James IV invaded northern England. His army was much larger than England's, yet at Flodden the Scots were decimated. James IV, together with the flower of all Scottish nobility, met his death, again leaving Scotland a minor for king requiring a regency.

Notes for James Hamilton:

2nd Lord Hamilton; created Earl of Arran

" ... was created Earl of Arran, in 1503, by his cousin, James IV, and obtained at the same time a grant of the island which still forms a part of the extensive estates of the family. He was also created a privy councillor, and was one of the nobles employed to negotiate a marriage between the King and Princess Margaret of England. In the following year he was appointed to the command of the auxiliary force of ten thousand men, which James sent to assist the King of Denmark in his hostilities with the Norwegians and Swedes. He was subsequently sent as ambassador to France, and was also placed at the head of the force despatched to the assistance of Louis XII of Frnace, who, in return for the valuable aid thus rendered him, settled a pension on the Earl for life. After the death of the Scottish King on the fatal field of Flodden, Arran was an unsuccessful candidate for the office of regent, which was conferred upon the Duke of Albany, and he revenged himself for his disappointment by thwarting the Government at every turn, and fomenting dissensions among the nobles. On the departure of the Regent for Frnace, in 1517, and again in 1524, after Albany's final retirement to the Continent, Arran was apopinted Lieutenant-General of the kingdom, and had the chief direction of public affairs. But he was utterly destitute of the energy and wisdom of his father, and proved himself a weak, facile and factious ruler. He was constantly at feud with the Douglases, now represented by the Earl of Angus, the second husband of Queen Margaret; and in the famouse skirmish of 'Clear the Causeway,' which took place in the High Street of Edinburgh, in 1520, the Hamiltons, who provoked the contest, were completely defeated. Several of their chiefs and seventy of their men were killed, and Arran himself, along with his natural son, Sir James Hamilton of Finnart, the principal instigator of the quarrel, with difficulty made their escape through the North Loch on a coal-horse from which they threw its load.

"Arran's facile character was productive of great injury both to his family and his country, and his legitimate offspring all bore their father's image. But his natural son, James Hamilton of Finnart, was a person of remarkable energy ..."

257924. James III King of Scotland, born 10 Jul 1451 in Stirlingshire, Scotland; died 11 Jun 1488 in killed at Sauchieburn, Stirlingshire, Scotland. He was the son of 515848. James II King of Scotland and 515849. Marie van Egmond. He married 257925. Margarethe Oldenburg of Denmark 13 Jul 1469 in Holyrood, Edinburgh, Scotland.

257925. Margarethe Oldenburg of Denmark, born 23 Jun 1456; died 14 Jul 1486 in Stirling. She was the daughter of 515850. Christian I Oldenburg King of Denmark and 515851. Dorothea von Hohenzollern.

Notes for James III King of Scotland:

His father's early death in 1460 made a long regency necessary. His first regent was his mother, Marie of Egmond; when she died three years later, her place was taken by Bishop Kennedy. However, the Bishop lasted only two years and several nobles then tried to control the country. At this time the English King Edward IV, wanting to have Lancastrian exiles removed from Scotland, went so far as to suggest that the nobles divide Scotland.

However, in 1469, James III gained control of government but was confronted with many problems. He accused his brothers of treason and, when Alexander, Duke of Albany fled to England, Edward IV supported him with the hope of causing even more confusion and trouble in the affairs of Scotland. Also in 1469, he married Margaret of Denmark and, as a dowry, her father promised money with the Orkney and Shetland Islands as securities. By 1472 it became obvious that the Danish King was unable to pay and, as a result, the Orkney and Shetland Islands were annexed by Scotland.

Encouraging intellectuals and artists, he alienated himself from the nobles which brought Scotland to the brink of civil war. He imprisoned his own brothers, the Earl of Mar in Craigmillar Castle and the Duke of Albany in Edinburgh Castle. When the Earl of Mar died in prison, James III was accused of killing him. In 1479 the Duke of Albany escaped from Edinburgh Castle by killing his jailers and escaping down the huge rock cliff on a rope. Afterwards, a peace treaty was signed by the two brothers and the Duke of Albany was given back his lands, but again James III forced his brother out of Scotland and this time it was to be for good.

In 1488 nobles secured the support of the crown prince and, with his knowledge, captured the king at Sauchieburn near Stirling. The crown prince may have approved of the capture of his father but not of the murder that followed. James III was buried at Cambuskenneth Abbey.

High Chamberlain of Scotland. Ambassador to France.

THE STEWARTS OF TRAQUAIR

"The estate of Traquair was originally a royal domain, and was conferred by Robert Bruce on his warm friend and devoted adherent, Lord James Douglas. After passing through various hands, it came into possession of an ancestor of the Murrays of Elibank, and was forfeited by William Murray in 1464. It was given to William Douglas of Cluny, but was almost immediately thereafter assigned to the Boyds. On the forfeiture of Robert, Lord Boyd, the head of this powerful family, in 1469, the estate was resumed by the Crown, but was shortly after conferred upon Dr. William Rogers, an eminent musician, and one of the favourites of the ill-starred James III. After holding the lands for upwards of nine years, Dr. Rogers sold them for an insignificant sum, in 1478, to James Stewart, Earl of Buchan, the second son of Sir James Stewart, called the Black Knight of Lorn, by Lady Jane Beaufort, widow of James I. The Earl conferred Traquair, in 1491, on his natural son, James Stewart, the founder of the Traquair family."

The Great Historic Families of Scotland, James Taylor

"The Title [earl of Buchan] remained dormant for forty-one years, but in 1466 it was bestowed on James Stewart, surnamed 'Hearty James,' the second son of James Stewart, the Black Knight of Lorn, by Lady Jane Beaufort, widow of James I. The new Earl was consequently uterine brother to James II. He was appointed High Chamberlain of Scotland in 1471, and two years later he was sent on an embassy to France. His son and grandson were successively Earls of Buchan."

She married 1st William Murray and became mistress to Sir James Stewart, Earl of Buchan.

Most reports indicate this was Margaret Murray, daughter of Patrick Murray, and the dates support this possibility better than the link I have indicated.

Children of James Stewart and Margaret Gray are:

Notes for James Stewart:

1st Baron of Traquair - was legitimized by his father in 1489 and became the ancestor of the Earls of Traquair.

"The Earl conferred Traquair, in 1491, on his natural son, James Stewart, the founder of the Traquair family. He obtained letters of legitimation, and married the heiress of the Rutherfords, with whom he received the estates of Rutherford and Wells in Roxburghshire. Like the great body of the chivalry of Tweeddale, and the 'Flowers of the Forest,' he fell along with his sovereign on the fatal field of Flodden in 1513."

The Great Historic Families of Scotland, James Taylor

Notes for Katherine Rutherford:

Katherine was made a ward of the King and forfieted her initial claim to the estate of Philip Rutherford in 1/27/1502/3. She had married James Stewart too quickly and without prior dispensation. She was closely related to James Stewart [3rd degree of consanguineity]. She was described as, "away ganging and trespassing with James ye Stewart of Traquair, committand hir person to him in fornication". This opened the way for Katherine's sister Helen and her husband Sir John Forman to inherit Sir Richard's estate. Sir Richard Rutherford's estate was now divided and in the hands of in-laws. Helen Rutherford married four times and without heir.

Notes for Sir William Drummond:

" ... William, Master of Drummond, his second son, was unfortunately implicated in a tragic affair which brought him to the scaffold. There was a feud of long standing between the Drummonds and the Murrays, and in 1490 the Master of Drummond, having learned that a party of Murrays were levying teinds on his father's estates for George Murray, Abbot of Inchaffray, hastened to oppose them at the head of a large body of follwers, accompanied by Campbell of Dunstaffnage. The Murrays took refuge in the church of Monievaird, and the Master and his party were retiring, when a shot from the church killed one of the Dunstaffnage men. The Highlanders, in revenge for this murder, set fire to the church, and nineteen of the Murrays were burnt to death. James determined to punish the ringleaders of this shocking outrage with death, and the Master of Drummond was apprehended, tried, convicted, and executed, in spite of the earnest entreaties of his mother and sister in his behalf.

"He left a son, who predeceased his grandfather."

Notes for George Home:

4th Lord Home

"The forfeited title and estates of Lord [Alexander] Home, who left no male issue, were restored, in 1522, to his brother George, who became fourth Lord. Like his predecessors, he appears to have possesssed the fickleness and instability of character which the family probably inherited from their versatile ancestors, the Earls of March. He deserted the party of the Earl of Angus -- Queen Margaret's second husband -- whom the Homes had hitherto supported, and became for a time a strenous partisan of Albany, probably in return for the restitution of the family estates and honours. But two or three years later he was found fighting on the side of Angus at the battle of Melrose, where Sir Walter Scott of Buccleuch made an unsuccessful attempt to rescue the young King, James V, from the hands of the Douglases. Shortly after, he assisted the Earl of Argyll in driving Angus across the Border and compelling him to take refuge in England. It is due to Lord Home, however, to state that, though thus inconstant in his adherence to the cause of his brother nobles, the remark which Sir James Melvil made repecting his son is equally applicable to him, that 'he was so true a Scotsman that he was unwinnable to England to do any thing prejudicial to his country.' There were very few Scottish nobles of that day of whom this could with truth be said. In August, 1542, Lord Home, along with the Earl of Huntly, defeated, at Haddon-Rig, a few miles to the east of Kelso, a body of three thousand horsemen, who were laying waste the country under the command of Sir Robert Bowes, the English Warden, the banished Earl of Angus, and Sir George Douglas. The encounter was fierce and protracted and was decided in favour of the Scots by the timely arrival of Lord Home with four hundred lances. The English were completely defeated, and left six hundred prisoners in the hands of the victors, among whom were the Warden himself, his brother, and other persons of note. A few months later, in conjunction with Huntly and Seton, Home did good service by harassing a formidable army which invaded Scotland under the Duke of Norfolk, and compelling him in little more than a week to retire to Berwick and disbnad his forces. In a skirmish with the English horsemen, on the 9th of September, 1547, the day before the battle of Pinkie, Lord Home, who commanded the Scottish cavalry, was thrown from his horse and severely injured, and his son, the Master of Home, was taken prisoner. His lordship was carried to the castle of Edinburgh, where he died. His wife, a co-heiress of the old family of the Halyburtons of Dirleton, stoutly defended Home Castle against the Protector Somerset, but was ultimately obliged to surrender, and it was garrisoned by a detachment of English troops. Lord Home left two sons and a daughter."

He was one of the leaders of the Confederate Lords who rebelled against King James III and he led the van against the royal array at the battle of Sauchieburn on 14th June 1488. Robert Birrel (1532-1605), writing in his diary which was printed in Dalyell’s "Fragments of Scottish History", seems to have believed that he was one of those responsible for the murder of King James after that battle. Under the new reign he rose to great power and held many offices. He became Master of the King’s Household, custodian of Edinburgh castle and Sheriff-Principal of Edinburgh and Haddington. He was appointed Great Admiral of the kingdom, for life, on the 10th September, 1488. On 17th October 1488 he was belted Earl of Bothwell, in full Parliament, following the forfeiture of John Ramsay.

iv. Agnes Stewart, born Abt. 1501; married Sir William Edmonstone; born Bef. 1493; died Abt. 1580 in of Duntreath.

Notes for Sir William Edmonstone:

5th of Duntreath

An instrument of sasine of the Barony of Duntreath to Sir William Edmonstone, 5th of Duntreath, as heir to his father, is dated May 2nd, 1516. In the same year he and his brother, Archibald of Rednock, were appointed to succeed their father as joint keepers of Doune Castle and Stewards of Monteith and Strathgartney.

James V died in December 1542 and his widow Mary of Lorraine, then became entitled to the dower lands which included the castle of Doune. Sir William Edmonstone, it seems, was again appointed custodian for among the family papers is a discharge with the sign-manual of the Queen Dowager Mary of Lorraine, to Sir William Edmonstone of Duntreath, Chamberlain Depute of Monteith for the rents of the years 1542-1545, discharging William Earl of Montrose, and all others concerned. It is dated Edinburgh, April 25th, 1549.

Obviously the Stewarts resisted, to what point we do not know, and says the historian Crauford, "it brought the feud to a point. The resentment of the Edmonstones of the House of Duntreath... broke into an open flame. The Laird of Duntreath himself, Archibald and James (of Newton), his brothers, their friends and retainers, happened to encounter Sir James Stewart in the High Street of Dunblane, upon which a sharp and brisk scuffle ensued, in which much blood was shed, and many slain on both sides. The Stewarts' party were worsted, and he himself slain on the spot. This incident fell out on Whitsunday 1543, for which this gentleman, the Laird of Duntreath, found means three years thereafter to procure a remission from the Duke of Chatelherault, Earl of Arran, the Governor, under the Great Seal."

The feud between the Edmonstones and the Stewarts continued for thirty years, until eventually it was settled when Sir William Edmonstone agreed to a bond of manrent (a pledge of support in all quarrels) with the son of Sir James Stewart.

Sir William married firstly, in 1522, the Lady Agnes Stewart, youngest daughter of Matthew, second Earl of Lennox of the Stewart line. Her dower appears to have been "the ten pound land of old extent of Balloch on the Leven, the ancient seat of the older Earls of Lennox.

475152. John Preston

Notes for John Preston:

He was a Catholic priest, who received from Henry V a grant of the church of Sandal from the priory of St. Pancras. The second son Richard Preston, became his heir, and a daughter, who married Thomas de Ros, the owner of Kendal Castle, from whom was descended Queen Catherine Parr, the last wife of King Henry VIII.

Of his ancestors and their estates:

http://www.fortunecity.com/millenium/quarrybank/194/england1.htm

"The derivation of the name of PRESTON is a matter of doubt. Some say it is derived from "praestone", meaning "excellent", others say it is assumed by the family from their landed estates in Mid. Lothian, Scotland. Also there are indications that the estates were named from the circumstances that the owner somewhere along the line was a priest; thus Priest-town, or Preston. The City of Preston was originally settled by a group of monks, and it is almost certain that the name was derived from Priest. This is also borne out by the description of the earliest known family crest that is described as follows:

"This crest bore the conceit of a castle, from whose high tower rose an eagle plunged for higher flight, with the pious aspiration at its base "SI DIEU VEULT", which freely rendered means, "Leaving the towers of earth we sore D. V. to heaven."

"It must also be remembered that up to about the year 900 or 1000 AD, there were no permanent names among European peoples. A person had a name that applied to him individually and the name passed away at the person's death. In fact, a mans name might be changed during the course of his life. People generally lived and died in the community where they were born, and of course they were well known in that community.

"Whatever the origin of the name of Preston, it was borne by the family as early as the time of Malcolm I of Scotland, who reigned from 944 to 953 AD.

"The first name on record was LEOLPHUS DE PRESTON. He lived in the time of William, surnamed the Lion, who reigned in Scotland from 1165-1214. There is no record of his son and heir, but his grandson was William de Preston. William was one of the Scottish nobles chosen by Edward I of England, at the death of Margaret, "The Maid of Norway", to arbitrate between Baliol and Bruce, the main disputants for the crown of Scotland.

"The fourth generation, Nicol De Preston, of which nothing more is known. Titles of estates in those days were considered "indivisible inheritances", and except in the case of failure to have male issue, all that was of consequence in the family genealogy was to know the one person to whom the title and estates descended. (This is great if you are in line with the one person, usually the first born male, if however, there were ten other male members of the family, unless they did something outstanding, their names and descendents are almost impossible to trace.)

"The fifth generation, Lawrence De Preston.

"The sixth generation, Richard de Preston, owned vast estates in the north of England. His estates of which there are two, were called PRESTON RICHARD and PRESTON PATRICK, and were located in the County of Westmoreland.

"The seventh generation, Sir Richard de Preston, whose name appears on several conveyances of land in Lancashire by Sir William de Furness along with Sir John de Fleming and others, as a witness to the transfer. He was also a witness to a grant and conveyance of lands in Preston, Holme and Hutton, by William de Lancaster the third, to Patrick, grandson of Gospatrick.

"The eighth generation, Richard de Preston, was named as one of the jurors in the postmortem inquisition of William de Lindsay.

"The ninth generation, Sir Richard de Preston, one of the jurors called to settle a dispute between the King of England and the Abbot of St. Mary's Convent, Yorkshire, as to whose right it was to make appointments to the two churches of Appleby. It was in this period that the struggles between the successions of William the Conqueror and the adherents of the Pope of Rome were in progress.

"The tenth generation, Richard de Preston, was named as a witness, 1333 AD, to a conveyance of land at Old Hutton. He married Annabella who survived him and by whom he had issue.

"The eleventh generation, Sir Richard de Preston, who represented his county, Westmoreland, in the English Parliament. This was in the time of Edward III when chivalry was at its height. His son succeeded him in the Preston estates and also in Parliament as Knight of the Shire for Westmoreland,

"The twelfth generation, Sir Richard de Preston, who in the year 1368, obtained from the King a license to a tract of land containing five hundred acres.

"The thirteenth generation, Sir John de Preston was the last of the Prestons to hold the two estates, Preston Patrick and Preston Richard. He also was a member of the Parliament in the time of Edward III. He had two sons, Sir Richard de Preston and Sir John de Preston.

"The fourteenth generation, Sir Richard de Preston, left only daughters upon his decease. Margaret Preston married Alan Pennington. Through this marriage, the manor of Richard Preston was removed from the Preston family. Preston Patrick however, passed to his brother, Sir John de Preston.

"Sir John de Preston was a judge of the Court of Commons Pleas under two monarchs, Henry IV and Henry V, from which position he was obliged to retire in 1427, because of infirmities of old age. He was the last of the 'de' Prestons and left issue."

Notes for Hamon Belknap:

As son and heir of Sir Robert Belknap, kt., in 1401 Hamon petitioned the Commons in Parliament for the restoration of the forfeited lands and tenements and to recall his father's attainter, as other exiled persons had had their possessions restored by then. (SC 8/23/1136). Another appeal by him to the King at Westminster for the reversion of Knelle and other manors dates from 1425/6, where he pleads that John Holt's and William Burgh's lands had been restored, whereas he was a minor in 1401 and could not protest.. (SC 8/25/1206). According to VCH he died seized of Knelle manor and Orpington in Kent in 1429. He had been in the retinue of the Duke of Bedford in 1420, mentioned as captain in the battle of Agincourt where John Oxenbridge of Sedlescombe and John Fenys served under him. (Sussex men at Agincourt).

From 'Chronique du Mont St. Michel': John, regent of France, Duke of Bedford informs Hamon de Belknapp that he has been made treasurer and general financial governor. Before that he had ordered the abbot of St. Michel, Hamon and Raoul le Sage to come to Normandy - On 28 April 1418 Hamo de Belknap and others had been appointed commisioners of array in Kent. (CPR Henry V, Vol. 2, p. 199). In 1414 we hear of him as member of a commission of 'walliis et fossatis' in Kent and Sussex, together with William Cheyney, Robert Oxenbregg, William Marchaund and others. - Hamon is buried in the chapel of our Lady in Beckley which funeral cost 8 d. In 1415 Thomas Stonor granted to Hamon and others lands etc. in Aylesbury, Stone, Stoke Mandeville and Stoke Halling in Buckingham. Thomas Stonor would have been the son of the earl of Ormond from his first marriage).

From 'Les Etats de Normandy', Appendice pp. 138: Hamon Belknap, Esq. was first Treasurer and master of the Exchequer in the 'Hôtel du Régent' and later was named Treasurer and General Governor of the French finances in the Duchy of Normandy by letter patent of 2 Jan. 1423. - Joan his wife was received by the Regent on 13 Nov. 1423 and received 600 lbs in consideration of the grand and notably constant services she had rendered to the Duchess of Bedford, wife of the Regent, as maid of honour - By a royal grant his eldest son John received possession of fiefs in the bailiwick of Rouen which had belonged to John Malherbe.

Hamon died in the first days of January 1429. On 22 Jan. a writ of 'clausit extremum' for Hamon Bealknap, esq., Kent, Sussex, Essex was issued. Thomas Broun and William Burgh received a commitment of the keeping of the manor of Crokeseston, Southampton, which had been forfeited by Robert Belknap on 7 Feb. - Ralph Botiler, kt., John Montgomery, kt. and Joan late the wife of Hamon Belknap were to keep all the lands late of Hamon for the service of one half of a kinght's fee to hold until the full age of John his son and heir. (CFR V. 10- 15).

Notes for James II King of Scotland:

Due to his prominent birthmark, he was known as "of the fiery face". As a child he had been spared when his father was murdered. His minority was exploited by the self-interest of the nobles, all trying to control the king and the kingdom.

He was able to free himself of these restricting controls by marrying Marie of Egmond, daughter of the Duke of Geldre and niece of the Duke of Burgundy. He tried to control the nobles but the Douglas clan remained difficult until, in 1452, James II summoned the Earl of Douglas to have supper with him at Stirling Castle. He asked the Earl to break off his alliance with the Earl of Crawford; but when this was refused, the King stabbed him with a dagger and the king's aides completed the killing. The Earl of Douglas's brother, together with 600 clansmen, rode to Stirling Castle to avenge the murder, only to find that the King had fled. In 1455, in a battle at Arkinholm, the whole Black Douglas Clan was defeated by the King's army under command of the Earl of Angus, chief of the Red Douglas Clan.

About 1457 James II tried to outlaw the game of golf, as too many clansmen were missing archery practice. Aggressively he pursued his nobles as well as the King of Norway and tried to pillage an England already divided by the War of the Roses. He obtained cannons to strengthen his army but was killed at Roxburgh when too near an exploding cannon.

Notes for Mary Stewart:

This unfortunate princess had been happily married to Thomas, Master of Boyd, "the most courteous, gentlest, wisest, kindest, most bounteous knight" and "fairest archer, devoutest, most perfect, and truest to his lady". The King made him Earl of Arran, giving them the island of Arran for her dowry. But his father, the Regent Boyd, suddenly fell from power in 1469 and the family fled into exile in Burgundy.

After her beloved husband's death, the princess returned to Scotland where the king gave her hand in marriage to Lord Hamilton, then an elderly widower. In 1484, after the murder by the Montgomeries of the young 2nd Lord Boyd, her son by her first marriage, her heir became James, 2nd Lord Hamilton, the son on her second marriage. This was of immense importance to Scottish history, as throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the Hamilton chiefs were often the nearest heirs presumptive to the throne.

Notes for James Hamilton:

created Lord Hamilton ; 6th of Cadzow, 1st Lord Hamilton, so created by royal charter 28 June 1445; at first joined the Douglas revolt of 1455 against James II, later went over to the King's side and helped suppress it, Sheriff Lanarkshire 1 July 1455, had a new charter of all his lands and baronies 23 Oct 1455...[Burke's Peerage]

"The heads of the Hamilton family continued faithful in their adherence tot he heir of Robert Bruce and the Stewarts. The immediate successors of Walter fought at the disastrous battles of Hlidon Hill and Durham, and took some part, though by no means a very prominent one, in the affairs of the kingdom and court. The member of the family to whom their greatness is mainly owing was Sir James Hamilton, the fifth knight and first baron, who was raised to the peerage in 1445 under the title of Lord Hamilton and Cadzow (pronounced Cadyow). He was noted both for his energy and his sagacity, which gave great weight to his opinion in the national council and among his brother barons. The vicinity of his estates to the principal seat of teh Douglases, as well as kinsmanship with that family, probably led him at first to enrol himself in the ranks of their followers. He accompanied the Earl of Douglas in his celebrated visit to Rome in 1450; and, in the following year, went with him on a pilgramage to the tomb of Thomas a Becket at Canterbury. As might have been expected, Hamilton joined the confederacy which Douglas formed with the Earls of Crawford and Ross against the Crown, and narrowly escaped the fate of the formidable chief of the league when he was assassinated by the King (James II) in Stirling Castle. When Sir James Douglas, the successor of the murdered baron and the last of the old stock, took the field against his sovereign at the hea of forty thousand men, Lord Hamilton was one of his most powerful and trusted supporters. The insurgents encamped on the south bank of the Carron, about three miles from the Torwood, so famous in the history of Sir William Wallace. James, who was well aware of his danger, advanced from Stirling to meet this formidable array with an army considerably inferior in numbers, but with 'the King's name as a tower of strength, which they upon the adverse faction lacked.' A battle seemed imminent, which should decide whether the house of Stewart or of Douglas was henceforth to reign in Scotland. But at this critical juncture, art did more than arms for the royal cause. Acting under the advice of the patriotic and sagacious Bishop Kennedy, James made overtures to Lord Hamilton and other allies of the Earl of Douglas, representing the danger which threatened not only the independence of the Crown, but the welfare of the country and their own interests, from the ambition and overgrown power of the Douglas family, and making liberal promises if, in this hour of extremity, they would abandon the cause of the insurgent baron. These representations produced a deep impression on the mind of Lord Hamilton, and taking advantage of the contemptuous reply made by the Earl to his remonstrances against the proposal to postpone till the next day an attack on the royal army -- 'If you are afraid or tired, you may depart when you please' -- the politic noble took Douglas at his word, and that very night passed over to the King with all his retainers. The other insurgent leaders, who had a high opinion of Lord Hamilton's prudence and sagacity, so generally followed his example that, before morning, the rebel camp was almost deserted. The complete overthrow of the formidable house of Douglas speedily followed: their vast estates were distributed among the supporters of the Royal cuase; and Lord Hamilton, whose timely desertion of the 'Black Douglases' had mainly contributed to their destruction, was rewarded with a large share of their forfeited possessions. He became thenceforth one of the most trusted councillors of his grateful sovereign, was frequently employed by him on important embassies in England, and, in 1474, he obtained the hand of Princess Mary, the King's sister, through whom his descendants became next heirs to the crown after the Stewarts. Besides his legitimate offspring, Sir James Hamilton, of Kincavel, became the father of Patrick Hamilton, the promartyr of the Scottish Protestant Church, who was himself killed at the celebrated fight between the Douglases and the Hamiltons in the High Street of Edinburgh, in 1520.

Notes for Joan de Beaufort Queen of Scotland:

Queen of Scotland

"..the Queen (Joan de Beaufort) was wounded in her efforts to save her husband, and it might have been better for Graham had he killed her too since he had gone this far. This freshest and fairest flower of the King's youth became a tigress in revenge. Atholl and Robert Stewart, Graham and his hired cut throats were soon taken. They suffered long and appalling torture until the Queen's grief was satisfied and they were sent to the merciful headsman."

Notes for George Gordon:

Earl of Huntly 2nd Earl of Huntly

"George, second Earl of Huntly, was apopinted, with the Earl of Crawford, joint justiciary of the country beyond the Forth. He was a member of the Privy Council of James III. Though he was an accomplice of Bell-the-Cat and other disaffected barons in the murder of the royal favourites at Lauder, in the final struggle between them and James, Huntly supported the cause of that unfortunate sovereign, and, along with the Earl of Athole, commanded the vanguard of the royal army in the battle of Sauchieburn, where the King lost his life. James IV, however, seems to have entertained no hostile feelings towards the Earl, for in 1491 he nominated him his lieutenant in the northern parts of Scotland beyond the North Esk river; and, in 1498, he appointed Huntly High Chancellor of Scotland. He resigned this office in 1502, and died soon after. The Earl was twice married. His first wife, Annabella, daughter of James I, bore to him six daughters and five sons. His eldest son became third Earl. His second son, Adam, married Elizabeth, Countess of Sutherland, and became Earl of Sutherland in her right. William, third son, was the ancestor of the Gordons of Gight, from whom Lord Byron was descended. James Gordon of Letterfourie, the fourth, was admiral of the fleet in 1513. Lady Catherine, the eldest daughter of Lord Huntly, who was regarded as the most beautiful and accomplished woman in Scotland, was given in marriage by the King to Perkin Wabeck, whose claims to the English throne he warmly supported. She accompanied that adventurer to England; after his execution King Henry granted her a pension, and assigned her a post of honour at the English court, where she was known by the name of the White Rose of Scotland. Lady Catherine afterwards married Sir Matthew Craddock, an ancestor of the Pembroke family. The Earl had no issue by his second wife, daughter of the first Earl of Errol."

Notes for Alexander Gordon:

3rd Earl of Huntly

"Alexander, third Earl of Huntly, according to Holinshed, was held in the highest reputation of all the Scottish nobility for his valour, joined with wisdom and policy. He contributed greatly to the suppression of a rebellion in the Isles in 1505, and in the following year he stormed the castle of Stornoway, in Lewis, the stronghold of Torquil Macleod, the leader of the insurgents. The Earl, along with Lord Home, commanded the left wing of the Scottish army at the battle of Flodden, 9th September, 1513, and overpowered and threw into disorder the division commanded by Sir Edward Howard. The Earl and his brother, the Earl of Sutherland, were among the few Scottish nobles who returned in safety from that fatal field, but Sir William Gordon of Gight was among the slain, as was the Alexander Gordon, heir-apparent of Lochinvar. When the Queen-Dowager was appointed Regent of the kingdom, the Parliament resolved that she should be guided by the counsels of Huntly, along with Angus and the Archbishop of Glasgow. During the minority of James V Huntly's authority was predominant in the north. When the Duke of Albany left the country in 1517, the Earl was nominated one of the Council of Regency, and, in the following year, he was appointed the royal lieutenant over all Scotland, except the West Highlands. He died at Paris, 16th January, 1524. By his first wife, a daughter of John, Earl of Athole, uterine brother of James IV, the Earl had four sons and two daughters. By his second wife, a daughter of Lord Gray, he had no issue. His eldest son, George, died young. John, his second son, also predeceased him, leaving two sons by his wife Margaret, an illegitimate daughter of James IV. Alexander, his third son, was an ancestor of the Gordons of Cluny; and the fourth, William, was Bishop of Aberdeen from 1547 to his death in 1577."

He was one of the Conservators of a truce with England, 20th September 1484. He was one of the leaders of the Confederate Lords who rebelled against King James III and he led the van against the royal array at the battle of Sauchieburn on 14th June 1488. Robert Birrel (1532-1605), writing in his diary which was printed in Dalyell’s "Fragments of Scottish History", seems to have believed that he was one of those responsible for the murder of King James after that battle. Under the new reign he rose to great power and held many offices. He became Master of the King’s Household, custodian of Edinburgh castle and Sheriff-Principal of Edinburgh and Haddington. He was appointed Great Admiral of the kingdom, for life, on the 10th September, 1488. On 17th October 1488 he was belted Earl of Bothwell, in full Parliament, following the forfeiture of John Ramsay. Other appointments abound and it is not necessary to list them all here.

He was one of the plenipotentiaries sent to conclude the treaty for the marriage of King James IV with Princess Margaret Tudor of England in October 1501 and he stood proxy for the King at the ceremony of betrothal on 25th January 1502.

Notes for Colin Campbell:

2nd Lord Campbell; created Earl of Argyll

"Colin, the grandson of Lord Campbell, was created earl of Argyll by James II in 1457. By his marriage to the eldest of the three daughters and co-heriresses of John [Stewart], Lord Lorne (all three married Campbells), the young Earl put an end to the feuds which for upwards of two hundred and fifty years had raged between the families of Lochaw and Lorne, and obtained the undisputed chieftainship of the county of Argyll. He acquired, in consequence of this connection, the lordship and title of Lorne from Walter Stewart, Lord Lorne and Invermeath, heir male of that lordship, in exchange for the estates of Kildoning, Bladoning, and other lands in the shires of Perth, Fife, Kinross, and Aberdeen. The galley -- the ancient badge of the family of Lorne -- was, in consequence of this acquisition, assumed into the Earl's hereditary coat-of-arms. 'The acquisition of Lorne,' says Dr. Fraser, 'was a favourable arrangement from the family of Argyll, as it lay adjacent to their other lands, while the Lowland possessions surrendered as an equivalent were scattered over various counties and far distant from their more important territories.' The Earl acquired extensive estatesbesides in Perthshire and Fifeshire, and the lordship of Campbell, with its celebrated castle near Dollar, where John Knox visited Archibald, fourth Earl of Argyll, and preached to him and his relatives. It continued to be a frequent residence of the family until 1644, when it was burned by the Macleans in the army of the Marquis of Montrose. At a later period he obtained a large share of the forfeited possessions of the Lord of the Isles. The most important offices at Court and in the kingdom were conferred upon him. He was frequently sent as ambassador to the English Court, and also to France. He was Master of the Royal Household, Grand Justiciary of Scotland, and eventually became Lord High Chancellor -- an office which he held for a long period. This dignity, along with the lands of 'Mekell and Lettel Pincartoun,' in the barony of Dunbar, was probably bestowed upon the Earl in 1483, as a reward for his loyal adherence to James III at the time of the conspiracy of Archibald Bell-the-Cat and other nobles, which led to the murder of the royal favourites at Lauder, in 1482. Argyll was in England at the time of the defeat and death of that unfortunate monarch at Sauchieburn, in 1488. On his return to Scotland he was at once reappointed Chancellor by James IV, who also conferred upon him the lands of Roseneath, Dumbartonshire (January 9th, 1489) which are still in the possession of the family. The mansion is one of the principal seats of the Duke of Argyll. This powerful and prsperous nobleman died in 1493. The Lord of the Isles, the mightiest of all the ancient Highland chieftains, had long possessed unquestioned supremacy in the Hebrides and throughout the mountain country of Argyllshire and Inverness-shire. But from this period their power began to wane before the rising influence of the Campbells. As late as the fifteenth century these haughty and turbulent island chieftains even disputed the authority of the kings of Scotland; but their successive rebellions were punished by successive forfeitures both of their ancient dignities and their possessions, and now that the house of Argyll had become sufficiently powerful to enforce the decrees of the King and Parliament, and had a strong interest in carrying these decrees into effect, the extensive territories which for many generations had belonged to the Lordship of the Isles were finally wrested from their ancient possessors and conferred upon the loyal clans, and especially upon the Campbells, who would now meet in the field the combined forces of all other Western septs."

Children of Colin Campbell and Isobel Stewart are:

i. Archibald Campbell, born Bef. 1458; died 09 Sep 1513 in Flodden Field; married Elisabeth Stewart Abt. 1478; born Abt. 1461.

Notes for Archibald Campbell:

2nd Earl of Argyll

"Archibald .. steadily pursused what may now be termed the family policy. In his father's lifetime he obtained a grant of the lans of Auchintorlie and Dunnerbok in Dumbartonshire, and of Duchall, in the county of Renfrew, forfeited by Robert, Lord Lyle. He succeeded to the great offices held by his father of Lord Chancellor of Scotland, Lord Chamberlain, and Master of the Household. He was also appointed Lord Lieutenant of the Borders, and Warden of the Marches, and largely increased the possessions of his clan at the expense of the island chiefs. Sir John Campbell, his third son, married Muriel, daughter and heiress of Sir John Calder of Calder, or Cawdor, near Nairn, and became the founder of the branch of the clan now represented by the Earl of Cawdor.

"The second Earl of Argyll commanded, with his brother-in-law, the Earl of Lennox, the right wing of the Scottish army at the sanguinary battle of Flodden, September 9th, 1513, and both Earls were left dead on the field."

Notes for Margaret Campbell:

or Marion Campbell, daughter of the first Earl of Argyll

Notes for George Seton:

2nd Lord Seton

" ... endowed the collegiate church of Seton (20th June, 1493), for the support of a provost, six prebendaries, two singing boys, and a clerk. This fine building is of great antiquity, though the precise date of its erection is unknown. It was long allowed to remain in a dilapidated condition, but a few years ago it was put into a tolerably satisfactory state of repair, and has been converted into a place of burial for the family of the Earl of Wemyss, to whom it now belongs. Lord George is described by the historian of the family as 'meikle given to leichery (medicine), and as cunning in divers sciences as in music, theology, and astronomy. He was so given to learning that, after he was married, he went to St. Andrews and studied there lang, and then went to Paris for the same purpose. He was, on a voyage to France, taken by some Dunkirkers and plundered. To be revenged of them, he bought a great ship called the Eagle, and harassed the Flemings. The keeping of that ship was so expensive that he was compelled to wadset (mortgage) and dispose of several lands.' His taste for splendid buildings may have contributed to his embarrassments. It was he who erected the original house of Wintoun, which appears to have been destroyed in Lord Hertford's inroad. The historian of the family says, 'the second lord built the haill place of Wintoun, with the yard and gardens thereof,' and he describes quaintly its ornamented gardens, the flower-pots of which were surrounded by a hundred wooden towers or temples, surmounted by bells over-gilt with gold. His eldest son, by a daughter of the first Earl of Argyll -- " succeeded him.

Notes for Adam Hepburn:

Adam Hepburne, Master of Hailes, afterwards styled of Dunsyre [in Lanarkshire], was not of an age to marry in 1448.

He atached himself to the party of the Boyds, and was concerned in the seizure of King James II at Linlithgow on 9th July 1466, for which he obtained a remission from Parliament dated 13th October in the same year. He was Sheriff of Berwick on 7th April 1467. He died in or before 1479, before his father.

"... the second Lord, who married the eldest daughter of the first Lord Home, was by no means a pattern of loyalty and obedience to the law; and, in alliance with ihs kinsmen, the Homes, took his share in the broils and feuds which disturbed the peace of the country in the unfortunate reign of James III. The minor branches of teh Hepburn family had by this time spread themselves through East Lothian and Berwickshire, and some of them, such as the Hepburns of Waughton and Whitsome, had become powerful."

"The fifth son, James, was first rector of Dalry and Parton, then, in 1515, he was elected Abbot of Dunfermline. In the same year he was appointed Lord High Treasurer, and, in 1516, he was elected Bishop of Moray. The fact that so many important offices were conferred upon [Patrick's] his younger sons is conclusive evidence of the great influence to which the head of the Hepburn family had now attained."

Notes for James I Stewart King of Scotland:

Black Knight of Lorne - assassinated in Perth, Scotland. Took the throne in 1424.

"James I, whose 'depth of sagacity and firmness of mine' contributed not a little to the good government of the kingdom."

To secure his safety, his father Robert III sent him to France, but his ship was intercepted and he found himself imprisoned in England. There he remained from 1406 until 1424. However, even though a prisoner, he received a very good education and became an important Scottish poet.

At last---in 1424 with an English wife, Joan Beaufort, at his side---he was allowed to return to Scotland. A ransom of 40,000 pounds had to be paid. James I was out for revenge; the family of Regent Albany, who had been responsible for his lengthy imprisonment, was destroyed and their possessions confiscated. He pursued those rivals descended from Robert II and several were executed. Once, at a banquet, one noble struck another across the face. James had the offending noble seized, the hand that had delivered the blow laid on the table, and the other noble was ordered to chop it off with his sword. Also, Paul Craw, a learned doctor, preaching against the Church of Rome, was arrested, tried and burnt to death at the stake.

In 1426 James I commanded that every Baron should kill all the wolf whelps they could find, and four times a year he commanded that a wolf hunt be kept; any tenant of the Baron's not attending was to pay a fine of one sheep. Also, every landlord was commanded to kill every young crow. If a crow was found in a tree, the tree was to be taken away from him, or he himself could fell the tree and pay a fine of five shillings to the king.

In about 1427 he decreed that no Scotsman was allowed to buy cloth or other goods from an Englishman, and no Englishman was allowed to sell any goods in Scotland unless he had special permission. No one was allowed to send gold or silver out of Scotland nor allowed to sell a horse to a foreigh country unless it was more than three years old. No one in Scotland was allowed to wear silk, furs or pearls unless they were a Lord of a Knight; and farmers were not allowed to wear coloured clothes but only plain ones made at home.

In 1428 every man or boy in Scotland was to be fined fourpence every time they played football and, to improve his people's aim, but to no avail, every man or boy over 12 years of age was required to shoot three arrows at a target every public holiday. In 1431 rebels supporting the Lord of The Isles defeated James I's soldiers and then attacked and ravaged the lands of Clan Cameron. Two years later, in 1433, Clan Mackay and Clan Sutherland engaged in a great battle near Longue, each clan had about 1,500 men but the Mackays almost wiped out the Sutherlands.

He tried to improve the kingdom's finances, even to extorting money from a protesting church. Slowly he restored peace by stopping abuses and showing concern for the Scottish people. However, nobles were still stirring up problems and, in 1437, a group of these under the Earl of Atholl murdered James I. Late at night they forced an entry and stabbed James to death in a vault beneath his bedchamber where the Queen had tried to hide him. It was a violent end for a man opposed to violence and a mismanaged plot which killed the king yet spared his six-year-old son, James II.

James I (Stewart), King of Scotland (1394-1437) and his wife, Joan Beaufort, is quite a romantic story: James was being sent to France for his education (and to protect him from his evil uncle, the Duke of Albany, who would inherit the throne if something happened to James), but was shipwrecked in England, and spent the next ten years as a 'guest' of the English Kings Henry IV and Henry V. Although he was a prisoner, he wasn't locked away in a tower, but took part in the life of the court. He received a good education, and passed his time writing poetry, notably a long poem called The King's Quair, which is all about how he saw Joan Beaufort walking in a garden and fell in love with her at first sight, etc. Eventually, he returned to Scotland, where he made the vow; "If God grant me but the life of a dog, I will make the key to keep the castle, and the bracken-bush the cow". This didn't suit the Scottish nobility, who burst in when he was in bed with his queen and murdered him. They had arranged for the beam that barred the door to be missing. One of the queen's ladies, noticing this, tried to bar the door by putting her own arm through the staple, but the conspirators smashed the door , and her arm. She was called 'Kate Bar-Lass' after that. Joan Beaufort became Regent for her young son, James II, and managed to track down and execute all the men who had killed her husband.

Notes for Joan de Beaufort Queen of Scotland:

Queen of Scotland

"..the Queen (Joan de Beaufort) was wounded in her efforts to save her husband, and it might have been better for Graham had he killed her too since he had gone this far. This freshest and fairest flower of the King's youth became a tigress in revenge. Atholl and Robert Stewart, Graham and his hired cut throats were soon taken. They suffered long and appalling torture until the Queen's grief was satisfied and they were sent to the merciful headsman."

Notes for James II King of Scotland:

Due to his prominent birthmark, he was known as "of the fiery face". As a child he had been spared when his father was murdered. His minority was exploited by the self-interest of the nobles, all trying to control the king and the kingdom.

He was able to free himself of these restricting controls by marrying Marie of Egmond, daughter of the Duke of Geldre and niece of the Duke of Burgundy. He tried to control the nobles but the Douglas clan remained difficult until, in 1452, James II summoned the Earl of Douglas to have supper with him at Stirling Castle. He asked the Earl to break off his alliance with the Earl of Crawford; but when this was refused, the King stabbed him with a dagger and the king's aides completed the killing. The Earl of Douglas's brother, together with 600 clansmen, rode to Stirling Castle to avenge the murder, only to find that the King had fled. In 1455, in a battle at Arkinholm, the whole Black Douglas Clan was defeated by the King's army under command of the Earl of Angus, chief of the Red Douglas Clan.

About 1457 James II tried to outlaw the game of golf, as too many clansmen were missing archery practice. Aggressively he pursued his nobles as well as the King of Norway and tried to pillage an England already divided by the War of the Roses. He obtained cannons to strengthen his army but was killed at Roxburgh when too near an exploding cannon.

Notes for George Gordon:

Earl of Huntly 2nd Earl of Huntly

"George, second Earl of Huntly, was apopinted, with the Earl of Crawford, joint justiciary of the country beyond the Forth. He was a member of the Privy Council of James III. Though he was an accomplice of Bell-the-Cat and other disaffected barons in the murder of the royal favourites at Lauder, in the final struggle between them and James, Huntly supported the cause of that unfortunate sovereign, and, along with the Earl of Athole, commanded the vanguard of the royal army in the battle of Sauchieburn, where the King lost his life. James IV, however, seems to have entertained no hostile feelings towards the Earl, for in 1491 he nominated him his lieutenant in the northern parts of Scotland beyond the North Esk river; and, in 1498, he appointed Huntly High Chancellor of Scotland. He resigned this office in 1502, and died soon after. The Earl was twice married. His first wife, Annabella, daughter of James I, bore to him six daughters and five sons. His eldest son became third Earl. His second son, Adam, married Elizabeth, Countess of Sutherland, and became Earl of Sutherland in her right. William, third son, was the ancestor of the Gordons of Gight, from whom Lord Byron was descended. James Gordon of Letterfourie, the fourth, was admiral of the fleet in 1513. Lady Catherine, the eldest daughter of Lord Huntly, who was regarded as the most beautiful and accomplished woman in Scotland, was given in marriage by the King to Perkin Wabeck, whose claims to the English throne he warmly supported. She accompanied that adventurer to England; after his execution King Henry granted her a pension, and assigned her a post of honour at the English court, where she was known by the name of the White Rose of Scotland. Lady Catherine afterwards married Sir Matthew Craddock, an ancestor of the Pembroke family. The Earl had no issue by his second wife, daughter of the first Earl of Errol."

Notes for William Hay:

created 1st Earl of Erroll

"About the middle of the fourteenth century, William de la Haya, the representative of the house, a zealous supporter of James II in his struggle with the Douglases, as a reward for his services was raised to the peerage by the title of Earl of Errol, and received various grants of land in 1446 and 1450. During the rebellion of that powerful house, which placed the throne of James II in imminent peril, the Earl of Errol, in order to conciliate the people, and to induce them to rally round their sovereign, resigned his constable fees, which were levied on everything brought to market while the Estates were sitting, and were the source of large emoluments to the High Constable. An indemnification was promised him for this great sacrifice, but was never given.

"The successors of Earl William continued for two centuries to take a prominent part in the wars, and treaties, and other public affairs connected with the history of the country."

515963. Mary Stewart, born Bef. 16 May 1452 in Stirling Castle, Stirlingshire, Scotland; died May 1488 in Hamilton, Clydesdale, Larnarkshire, Scotland. She was the daughter of 515848. James II King of Scotland and 515849. Marie van Egmond.

Notes for James Hamilton:

created Lord Hamilton ; 6th of Cadzow, 1st Lord Hamilton, so created by royal charter 28 June 1445; at first joined the Douglas revolt of 1455 against James II, later went over to the King's side and helped suppress it, Sheriff Lanarkshire 1 July 1455, had a new charter of all his lands and baronies 23 Oct 1455...[Burke's Peerage]

"The heads of the Hamilton family continued faithful in their adherence tot he heir of Robert Bruce and the Stewarts. The immediate successors of Walter fought at the disastrous battles of Hlidon Hill and Durham, and took some part, though by no means a very prominent one, in the affairs of the kingdom and court. The member of the family to whom their greatness is mainly owing was Sir James Hamilton, the fifth knight and first baron, who was raised to the peerage in 1445 under the title of Lord Hamilton and Cadzow (pronounced Cadyow). He was noted both for his energy and his sagacity, which gave great weight to his opinion in the national council and among his brother barons. The vicinity of his estates to the principal seat of teh Douglases, as well as kinsmanship with that family, probably led him at first to enrol himself in the ranks of their followers. He accompanied the Earl of Douglas in his celebrated visit to Rome in 1450; and, in the following year, went with him on a pilgramage to the tomb of Thomas a Becket at Canterbury. As might have been expected, Hamilton joined the confederacy which Douglas formed with the Earls of Crawford and Ross against the Crown, and narrowly escaped the fate of the formidable chief of the league when he was assassinated by the King (James II) in Stirling Castle. When Sir James Douglas, the successor of the murdered baron and the last of the old stock, took the field against his sovereign at the hea of forty thousand men, Lord Hamilton was one of his most powerful and trusted supporters. The insurgents encamped on the south bank of the Carron, about three miles from the Torwood, so famous in the history of Sir William Wallace. James, who was well aware of his danger, advanced from Stirling to meet this formidable array with an army considerably inferior in numbers, but with 'the King's name as a tower of strength, which they upon the adverse faction lacked.' A battle seemed imminent, which should decide whether the house of Stewart or of Douglas was henceforth to reign in Scotland. But at this critical juncture, art did more than arms for the royal cause. Acting under the advice of the patriotic and sagacious Bishop Kennedy, James made overtures to Lord Hamilton and other allies of the Earl of Douglas, representing the danger which threatened not only the independence of the Crown, but the welfare of the country and their own interests, from the ambition and overgrown power of the Douglas family, and making liberal promises if, in this hour of extremity, they would abandon the cause of the insurgent baron. These representations produced a deep impression on the mind of Lord Hamilton, and taking advantage of the contemptuous reply made by the Earl to his remonstrances against the proposal to postpone till the next day an attack on the royal army -- 'If you are afraid or tired, you may depart when you please' -- the politic noble took Douglas at his word, and that very night passed over to the King with all his retainers. The other insurgent leaders, who had a high opinion of Lord Hamilton's prudence and sagacity, so generally followed his example that, before morning, the rebel camp was almost deserted. The complete overthrow of the formidable house of Douglas speedily followed: their vast estates were distributed among the supporters of the Royal cuase; and Lord Hamilton, whose timely desertion of the 'Black Douglases' had mainly contributed to their destruction, was rewarded with a large share of their forfeited possessions. He became thenceforth one of the most trusted councillors of his grateful sovereign, was frequently employed by him on important embassies in England, and, in 1474, he obtained the hand of Princess Mary, the King's sister, through whom his descendants became next heirs to the crown after the Stewarts. Besides his legitimate offspring, Sir James Hamilton, of Kincavel, became the father of Patrick Hamilton, the promartyr of the Scottish Protestant Church, who was himself killed at the celebrated fight between the Douglases and the Hamiltons in the High Street of Edinburgh, in 1520.

Notes for Mary Stewart:

This unfortunate princess had been happily married to Thomas, Master of Boyd, "the most courteous, gentlest, wisest, kindest, most bounteous knight" and "fairest archer, devoutest, most perfect, and truest to his lady". The King made him Earl of Arran, giving them the island of Arran for her dowry. But his father, the Regent Boyd, suddenly fell from power in 1469 and the family fled into exile in Burgundy.

After her beloved husband's death, the princess returned to Scotland where the king gave her hand in marriage to Lord Hamilton, then an elderly widower. In 1484, after the murder by the Montgomeries of the young 2nd Lord Boyd, her son by her first marriage, her heir became James, 2nd Lord Hamilton, the son on her second marriage. This was of immense importance to Scottish history, as throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries the Hamilton chiefs were often the nearest heirs presumptive to the throne.

Notes for James Hamilton:

2nd Lord Hamilton; created Earl of Arran

" ... was created Earl of Arran, in 1503, by his cousin, James IV, and obtained at the same time a grant of the island which still forms a part of the extensive estates of the family. He was also created a privy councillor, and was one of the nobles employed to negotiate a marriage between the King and Princess Margaret of England. In the following year he was appointed to the command of the auxiliary force of ten thousand men, which James sent to assist the King of Denmark in his hostilities with the Norwegians and Swedes. He was subsequently sent as ambassador to France, and was also placed at the head of the force despatched to the assistance of Louis XII of Frnace, who, in return for the valuable aid thus rendered him, settled a pension on the Earl for life. After the death of the Scottish King on the fatal field of Flodden, Arran was an unsuccessful candidate for the office of regent, which was conferred upon the Duke of Albany, and he revenged himself for his disappointment by thwarting the Government at every turn, and fomenting dissensions among the nobles. On the departure of the Regent for Frnace, in 1517, and again in 1524, after Albany's final retirement to the Continent, Arran was apopinted Lieutenant-General of the kingdom, and had the chief direction of public affairs. But he was utterly destitute of the energy and wisdom of his father, and proved himself a weak, facile and factious ruler. He was constantly at feud with the Douglases, now represented by the Earl of Angus, the second husband of Queen Margaret; and in the famouse skirmish of 'Clear the Causeway,' which took place in the High Street of Edinburgh, in 1520, the Hamiltons, who provoked the contest, were completely defeated. Several of their chiefs and seventy of their men were killed, and Arran himself, along with his natural son, Sir James Hamilton of Finnart, the principal instigator of the quarrel, with difficulty made their escape through the North Loch on a coal-horse from which they threw its load.

"Arran's facile character was productive of great injury both to his family and his country, and his legitimate offspring all bore their father's image. But his natural son, James Hamilton of Finnart, was a person of remarkable energy ..."

Notes for Richard de Neville:

Knight of the Garter. 1st Earl of Salisbury. Executed at Pontefract Castle.

Richard Neville, Earl of Salisbury, played a leading part in the Wars of the Roses and was one of the main supporters of Richard, Duke of York (Richard III).

The Nevilles were the most powerful family in England in the 1460's and Richard Neville's son, another Richard Neville (the "King-Maker") was their greatest member.

On 24 August 1453 a quarrel between the Nevilles and thePercies developed into open warfare when a 700-strong force of men-at-arms in the Percy livery fell upon a party of Nevilles, including the Earl of Salisbury, his wife and sons, returning from a wedding between Thomas Neville, Salisbury's second son, and Matilda, niece and heiress of Ralph, Lord Cromwell. The wedding party was armed (another indication of the state of affairs) and a battle raged across the Yorkshire Moors for several hours, with a number of people being killed and many wounded, while the Neville ladies rode for shelter at the manor of Sheriff Hutton. (Source: "The Wars of the Roses", by Robin Neillands)

In December 1460 Salisbury was captured in the field at the battle of Wakefield and taken to Pontefract Castle, where he was beheaded the next day, his head mounted over the Micklebar gate of the city of York.

967753. Juliane 'Joan' <Unknown>, died 1415.

Notes for Sir Robert Belknap:

Robert de Belknap; Robert de Bealknap

Robert son of Robert married Juliane, (d. 1415), and they had a son Hamon, a daughter Jane or Joanna, a daughter Juliana (SC 8/95/4704). There were two younger sons: Thomas and John. Juliane's surname was probably Dorset or Darsett, derived from a manor which was owned later by her descendants.

Who was Robert de Belknap?

During 25 years he was bailiff of the Liberty of the Archbishop of Canterbury. But mainly he acted as a justice of whom traces can be found in Cal. Pat. Rolls from 1362 and assize rolls between 1373-1387 covering almost all of the southern English counties. On June 26, 1377 he was appointed chief justice of the Common Bench by King Richard II (C.P.R.)

Sir Robert Belknap was sentenced for treason to death in the Parliament of Feb. 1st 1388. But the sentence was finally commuted to banishment to Ireland. He forfeited his lands which lay in Kent, Essex, Hertfordshire. Hampshire and Sussex. The forfeiture of Robert's lands caused an avalanche of petitions for justice to be done of persons who had been wronged by this decision due to earlier enfeoffments etc..- "Accused by the Commons, condemned to be fined and imprisoned at the will of the King. Lords Appellants accused several lords and commoners, whom the Commons it seems had a mind to impeach; ..... The Commons then impeach Robert Belknap, Lord Chief Justice, Sir John Cary, Chief Baron, and other judges, who were condemned by the same Parliament." (House of Lords Journal Vol. 14, 30 Oct. 1690 - A 10).

Shortly after 1384 Robert Belknap had got hold of the manors of La More in Sandon and Rushden. After Robert's forfeiture Rushden was granted to his wife Juliane for his and their children support. His son Hamon sold it in 1419. (VCH Hertfordshire, Vol. 3).

Robert Belknap was allowed to return to England in 1397 (Dict. of Nat. Biography) but his attainter was not lifted. Therefore he addresses the King requesting the restoration of his lands in the king's hands, some of which being held by Dalingerugge, Echingham, Lady Engaine and Parker. (SC 8/249/12417). On 21 May 1398 a mandate was issued to deliver certain lands to him, (Cat. of Manuscripts Library of the Soc. of the Inner Temple), for example the lands which were farmed by Thomas Woodstock, Duke of Gloucester. From VCH Kent, Vol. 4: "The king considered him as a martyr to his interest, granted him several of his estates again among others his moiety of Lidsing which he then gave to the Priory of St. Andrew in Rochester for one monk to celebrate mass in the Cathedral for ever for the souls of himself, his predessors and successors".

Chief justice of the Court of Common Pleas, 10th Oct. 1375.

18 Ric. II, no. 39. According to an inquisition taken in 1430 or 1431 Sir Robert Belknap forfeited the manor and advowson of Penton Mewsey in 1388 (ibid. 9 Hen. VI, no. 61). Sir Ralph Stonor married Joan daughter of Sir Robert Belknap, who presumably had the premises in trust. In 1391 Ralph Stonor granted the manor and advowson to William Sutton and others (Close, 14 Ric. II, m. 38 d.).

Notes for Juliane 'Joan' <Unknown>:

1390 - Juliana, wife of Robert de Beleknapp addresses King and Council stating that her husband has lost all his possessions, has been banished, leaving her and f i v e children in England and that only 40 pounds out of his former lands have been granted him yearly. But most of those lands were sold meantime so that she cannot pay that sum any more. She also pleads that certain lands are entailed to Robert's heirs and others held jointly with him. She also requests 10 pounds rent out of tenements of her inheritance. - (SC 8/95/4704)

In 1407 Richard Coble and John Westan with Alice his wife sued John de Burg and Joan his wife for a messuage in Seynt Mary Craye, and they sued John Marchall and Joan (Juliand), formerly the wife of Robert Belknap, kt. and Thomas de Dyngeley for lands in St. Mary Craye, Paulys Craye, Orpyngton, Farmbergh and Chellefeld claiming that those lands being held in gavelkind. Obviously, they lost the plea (De Banco Roll).

Juliana Belknap after many difficulties was able to hold Knelle manor until her death on 22 July 1414 (VCH). - In the Subsidy Roll of 1411-2 she appears holding the manor of Knell, worth 20 lbs yearly. - Belknap, Julia who was the wife of Richard, kt, Kent, 1415. (Inq. p. m.) Whether Richard should read Robert or whether she married after her husband's death again, remains a question.

Joan (Juliane) late the wife of Robert Bealknap, kt. held on the day of her death for the term of her life the manors of Seyntlynge in the towns of Orpington, Seyntmariecray, Paulynescraye, Chiselhurst, Chellefeld and Sevynton with appurtenances in Kent with remainder to Thomas, son of the said Robert and Juliane, remainder to John, brother of Thomas, of the gift of Nicholas Bond which he had made to Robert Belknap and Juliane .

Children of Robert Belknap and Juliane <Unknown> are:

i. Joan Belknap, born Aft. 1366; married (1) Edmund de Hampden Aft. 1403; born Bef. 1366 in of Great Hampden, Buckinghamshire; died Bet. 1419 - 1420; married (2) Sir Ralph Stonor Bef. 1393; born 1366 in Stonor, Oxfordshire; died 1394.

Notes for Joan Belknap:

Joan was widowed and married 2nd Edmund Hampden.

John Burke’s "A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Commoners of Great Britain and Ireland" relates that Sir Ralph de Stonor, kt. married secondly Jane, daughter of Sir Robert Belknapp, kt. who was constituted chief justice of the Court of Common Pleas, 10th Oct. 1375. (See also SC 8/24/1167). His first wife had been a daughter of James Butler, second earl of Ormond (d. 1359). Jane's first husband had been Edmund de Hampden from Buckinghamshire. From both marriages she had descendancy. Her son with Ralph Stonor was Gilbert who d. 1397.

Notes for Sir Ralph Stonor:

Sir Ralph de Stonore

"A chart that comes from a privately published history of the Catholic family Stonor from Stonor in Oxfordshire, showing Sir Ralph de Stonore marrying Joan Belknap and having two sons one being Thomas who married Alice Kirkby. That is also the information in Burke's Peerage."

A Sir Ralph Stonor with a son Thomas is mentioned in Parliament and Politics in Late Medieval England By John Smith Roskell.

From the 12th century, at least, this Pishill manor was held by under-tenants. The Venables who gave the manor its name left no other trace of their tenure, but it is likely that they were a Lanchashire or Cheshire family connected with the overlords or with the later under-tenants who also held land in Cheshire. (fn. 58) It is significant that a Roger Venables witnessed a grant in Cheshire (fn. 59) to Adam de Dutton of Warburton Dutton (Ches.), a tenant of the constables of Chester, (fn. 60) and who seems to have been an under-tenant of the manor. The Duttons certainly held Pishill under the Grelles in 1279. It is not clear when this under-tenancy was created, but it seems likely that it was in existence at the end of the 12th century when Adam de Dutton married a daughter of Roger Fitz Alured of Cumbray, from whom he obtained Warburton. (fn. 61) Fitz Alured (fl. 1163), the 12th-century tenant of Shirburn, (fn. 62) was demesne tenant of Pishill and was also a dependent of the constables of Chester. (fn. 63) His son Ralph Fitz Roger held Pishill property and granted dower there to his mother Maud de Frodsham in 1204, but reserved his demesne land. (fn. 64) The property, however, both in Pishill and Shirburn descended to his sister's heirs, the Duttons. (fn. 65) Adam de Dutton, who became seneschal of the constable, died towards the end of John's reign and was followed by his son Geoffrey (d. 1248) and his grandson Geoffrey. (fn. 66) The younger Geoffrey was still alive in 1275, (fn. 67) but dead by 1279 when 1 fee in Pishill was held of his heirs by Thomas Salley, (fn. 68) who also held in 1282. (fn. 69) Dutton's heir was his son, Sir Peter de Dutton, with whom the alternative family name of Warburton first came into use. (fn. 70) He granted the manor to John Stonor of Stonor, the Lord Chief Justice, at a yearly rent of 40s. some time before 1315, when Stonor was granted free warren there. (fn. 71) In 1335 his son Geoffrey (III) renounced all claims to the rent. (fn. 72) The descent of Pishill Venables, therefore, has followed the descent of Stonor up to the present day (1960). (fn. 73) It was among the lands put in trust by Ralph Stonor in 1390 and received back by him in 1393. (fn. 74) From 1420 to 1422 the manor was leased out, (fn. 75) but in general the Stonors kept the manor in demesne and after 1474 Pishill Napper as well. In the 16th century the Pishills were among the lands disputed by Sir Adrian Fortescue. (fn. 76) Both were part of the dowry of Lady Cecily Stonor in 1566, (fn. 77) and in all late Stonor deeds the two Pishills invariably appear together. The family continued to hold the lordship: in 1960 Major the Hon. Sherman Stonor, the son of Lord Camoys, was lord of the manor. (fn. 78)

From: 'Parishes: Pishill', A History of the County of Oxford: Volume 8: Lewknor and Pyrton hundreds (1964), pp. 131-138. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=63822. Date accessed: 19 July 2008.

Sir John Stonor, the notable judge, evidently purchased the tenancy of this manor in 1313 for 10 marks from two sisters, Alice and Maud, wife of William of the Chamber, who were perhaps the daughters of William and Maud de la Ho. (fn. 172) In 1315 Sir John was granted free warren in his demesne lands in Watcombe. (fn. 173) Later he settled the manor on himself and his wife, and in 1346 he seems to have bought the manor from the overlord, Préaux Abbey, for he was released from payment of the old rent and henceforth paid a nominal rent of 2s. (fn. 174) On his death in 1354 he held Watcombe manor of the Abbot of Préaux for 2s. a year, as well as a messuage and carucate of Watlington manor for 10s. a year. (fn. 175) The Black Prince's steward tried to treat Watcombe as part of Wallingford honor, but Sir John (II) Stonor, the judge's son, successfully maintained his claim that it was held of Préaux at fee farm. (fn. 176) When Stonor died in 1361 he held a messuage and 80 acres of Préaux Abbey for 2s. yearly with 5 acres of meadow, a ruined horse-mill, pasture at Watcombe and in Watlington for 2 horses, 6 oxen, and 100 sheep, 62s. rent of free tenants, and pleas of court worth 2s. yearly. (fn. 177) Like other Stonor property, Watcombe manor was held in custody during the minority of the heir, Edmund Stonor, by Isabella, the king's daughter, but in 1363, although still a minor, Edmund was allowed to hold it and the other manors at farm. (fn. 178) On Sir Edmund Stonor's death in 1382 the heir was another minor and Sir Robert Belknap had his custody and held courts for both Watcombe and Watlington lands. (fn. 179) Watcombe was not mentioned among the properties held on the death of Sir John Stonor in 1390, (fn. 180) nor among those of his brother Sir Ralph Stonor in 1394. Sir Ralph, however, had made a settlement of it in 1393, (fn. 181) and so Watcombe may have been included in 'Hoo' manor, another Stonor property in Watlington, and like 'Hoo' have been held by his widow Joan and her second husband Edmund Hampden, who received rents from 'Hoo' and Watcombe from 1396 to about 1407. (fn. 182) Watcombe must then have reverted to the Stonors, for in 1417 Thomas Stonor's receiver accounted for similar rents and for a clerical tenth paid to the king for 'La Hoo', which must in fact have been for Préaux Abbey's property in Watcombe. (fn. 183) Watcombe or Watcombe fee manor, as it was sometimes called, followed the descent of Stonor manor until the execution of Sir Adrian Fortescue in 1539, when it descended to his daughter Margaret, wife of Thomas, Lord Wentworth (d. 1551), as her share of her mother's inheritance. (fn. 184)

Notes for Sir Alexander Livingstone:

"Sir Alexander Livingston of Callendar, a man of transcendent ability and far-reaching ambition, left his mark deeply on the Scottish history of his time. He was the favourite counsellor of James I (of Scotland), after whose death he acted as guardian to the young King James II during his minority, and, in that capacity was for some time the virtual ruler of Scotland.

"Even in the turbulent age in which he lived, Sir Alexander Livingston was distinguished by his uncommon boldness and decision. These qualities are apparent in everything he did, but are nowhere more strikingly shown than in his high-handed interference with the re-marriage of the Queen Mother, Joan Beaufort grand-daughter of John of Gaunt and widow of James I. This singular affair and other violent passages in the life of Sir Alexander are very well described by Mr. E. B. Livingston in his Livingstons of Callendar, pp. 38-49.

"During his eventual career Sir Alexander Livingston filled various offices of the highest dignity and importance, including those of Justiciary of Scotland and Ambassador to England. He died in 1451. By his wife, a daughter of James Dundas of Dundas he had, among other children, two sons, of whom the younger, Alexander Livingston of Feldes, Constable of Stirling Castle, was the ancestor of the Livingstons of Dunipace (extinct 1678)."

Notes for Thomas Maule:

" ... .Connected with this marriage [to Lindsay] and the subsequent repudication of the lady by her husband, Commissary Maule relates an incident which throws great light on the morals of that period. It appears that Sir David Guthrie, who had married the sister of Sir Thomas Maule, after she had borne him a number of children, desired to get rid of his wife, and sued for a divorce before the Consistory Court of St. Andrews, on the plea that she was related to him within the prohibited degrees -- a common pretext at that time for the dissolution of the marriages of ill-matched couples. The ecclesiastical court readily lent their sanction to this device, and Sir David Guthrie was allowed to put away his wife. The Earl of Crawford, it appears, had assisted Sir David in procuring this divorce, and 'thearfor Sir Thomas Maule did tak sic indignatione at the Earle that he did repudiat his wyf, albeit ane innocent woman, and to quhome no man could reproche any notoure fault, Sche liveit long after him.' Sir Thomas took for his secondwife Catherine Cramond, daughter of the Lord of Aldbar. After his marriage Sir Thomas, when 'rydand at the huntes heir to the Green Lawe of Brechin, suddanlie became blind and lost his sight, quharfor he was called the blind knight.'

Notes for Sir William Douglas:

2nd Earl of Angus ; Lord of Liddesdale

http://www.maybole.org/history/castles/northberwick.htm

includes some biographical info - note that William was only about 7 or 8 years old during the 1406 action.

"In 1389, Drummond's failure to become keeper of Tantallon, resulted in him seeking English help in pursuing his own land claims to the Douglas estates. However, as he led his English army into Scotland, he was ambushed by Archibald the 'Grim' 3rd Earl of Douglas. With his forces destroyed, Drummond is thought to have fled to France as his body was never recovered from the battlefield. The 'Red' Douglas then became 1st Earl of Angus, when his mother resigned her title to give him the status required to hold Tantallon in his own right. The Stewarts then agreed to his continued occupation of Tantallon.

"These double dealings were not only confined to the nobility but extended to the Royal Stewart household. In 1402 Prince David was 'arrested' by his Uncle the Duke of Albany and his brother-in-law Archibald 4th Earl of Douglas to keep the peace. But as the Prince was 'long guarded' at Falkland castle he died of starvation. Since King Robert III of Scots (1390-1406) was a sick, weak willed man his brother Albany escaped punishment for this crime and continued to plot the King's overthrow and the murder of young Prince James (later King James I of Scots 1406-1437).

"In February 1406,Sir David Fleming with Robert Lauder and a 'strond band' of the 'leading men of Lothian' accompanied by Prince James as a symbol of Royal authority marched on Tantallon castle. It appeared King Robert or rather his lackeys were re-asserting the Stewart claim to Tantallon made and abandoned in 1388. As plots were afoot to kill the Prince, Tantallon was an ideal coastal stronghold to hide him until he could be shipped to France. The Sinclairs of Herdmanston acting as protectors of young William the 'Red' Douglas 2nd Earl of Angus refused the Royal party entry. The violent verbal barrage between the gatekeeper and Fleming exploded into actual violence which 'shocked' the Royal army into a quick flight to Robert Lauder's North Berwick castle. Expecting an assault by the Tantallon garrison the Prince was rowed out to the even safer Bass Rock castle to await a ship to France. Fleming and the Royal escort appeared trapped. To the east was Tantallon, to the south Herdmanston castle and Byres castle both held by garrisons loyal to the 'Red' Douglas faction. To the west was Dirleton castle held by the Halyburtons whoses loyalties were doubtful. Beyond that lay Edinburgh castle held by Archibald Douglas's brother James the 'Gross' Douglas who as an ally of the Duke of Albany wanted Prince James dead so Albany could become King.

"With great haste, the Royal army raced passed Dirleton, flying the Royal banner implying the Prince was present. The army was shadowed by the Halyburtons and the Sinclairs who had already sent riders to Edinburgh castle which drew out the 'Black' Douglas army from there. After a lengthy pursuit, the Royal force was 'overtaken' at the battle of Long Hermiston Moor and after 'a terrible fight' routed with their leader David Fleming killed.

"No doubt the rebel army was sent by the Duke of Albany as Prince James was the only stumbling block to his goal of seizing the Scots throne. The rebel army marched on 'Castle Hill' to check the location of the Prince, though there is no written record of a siege of North Berwick or of the Bass castle as the rebels were unwilling, or unable, to assault the Bass, which was said to be a 'fortress'. It may have been the case that the 'Red' Douglases sacked 'Castle Hill' because the Lauders had betrayed their trust. Later Prince James boarded a ship the 'Maryenknecht',to France but was intercepted off Flamborough Head by the English and held captive for 18 years. On hearing of his son's plight, heartbroken King Robert died. His brother Albany then took control of the Kingdom as 'Governor'." (leaving out some info here)

"Today in North Berwick only the name 'Castle Hill' hints at where King James I as a boy sought sanctuary from the Stewarts of Albany in 1406 which led to such bloody reprisals when he became an adult."

Notes for Margaret Hay:

http://www.maybole.org/history/castles/yester.htm

"In 1409 Margaret, daughter of William Hay married William the 'Red' Douglas 2nd Earl of Angus in an attempt to bring the 'Red' Douglases back into the fold of the 'Black' Douglas camp. With the death of William Hay in 1420 his son Thomas took over as Lord of Yester and started a dispute with the Borthwicks of Borthwick castle, Mid Lothian also 'Black' Douglas vassals. Which led to local Lothian violence with the 'Red' Douglases delighted to help the Hays in their attacks, because they were protecting their 'in laws' . This minor civil war continued until Prince James, now King James I (1406-1437) returned to Scotland in 1424. In 1478 John Hay was created Baron Yester of Yester."

Notes for George Douglas:

4th Earl of Angus, Lord of Liddesdale

"On the death of James, the third Earl, without issue, the title and estates devolved upon -- George Douglas, second son of the second Earl, who filled several important offices, and commanded the Royal forces in the contest with the Earl of Douglas, whose lands and lordship of Douglas he obtained on the forfeiture of that formidable and turbulent noble. The Earl, who had a high military reputation, held the office of Lieutenant-General of the Kingdom after the death of James II. He died in 1462. He performed a brilliant exploit during the Wars of the Roses, in bringing off the French garrison from Alnwick under the eyes of the Yorkists."

He declined to join with Earl Douglas against King James II in 1451. Earl Douglas was killed by the King in Stirling on 7 February 1452. John and son William participated in the battle of Brechin on 18 May 1452 with the King against the Earl of Crawford (principal confidant of the Douglasses). Success of the battle was credited in no small part to the Forbesses and their associates.

A knight in 1444, before he ascended, he obtained a charter of the lands of Corsindae from Alexander Seton of Gordon, and subscribed a bond of manrent to him in October 1444.

James may have accompaned Earl Douglas to Rome in 1450 to celebrate the Jubilee.

Notes for Alexander Seton Gordon:

Created Earl of Huntly

Alexander Seton aka Gordon

"Alexander, the eldest, was created Earl of Huntly in 1449. He was a good deal employed in embassies and negotiations at the English court. During the rebellion of the Douglases Huntly was appointed by James II (who placed great confidence in his integrity and judgment) lieutenant-general of the kingdom, and was intrusted with the difficult task of suppressing the rebellion of the Earls of Crawford and Ross, who had entered into a treasonable association with the Earl of Douglas. Marching northward with a powerful army under the royal standard, he encountered Crawford, at the head of his retainers and vassals, on a moor about two miles north-east of Brechin. The battle was fiercely contested, and for a considerable time the issue was very doubtful; but it was decided against the Tiger Earl, as Crawford was called, by the desertion in the heat of the fight of one of his most trusted vassals, Collace of Balnamoon, at the head of three hundred men. Huntly lost two of his brothers, and Gordon of Methlic, ancestor of the Earl of Aberdeen, in this sanguinary conflict. A brother of Crawford, and sixty other lords and gentlemen who fought on his side, were among the slain. The Earl and his discomfited followers fled to Finhaven Castle. On alighting from his horse, the savage Earl called for a cup of wine, and declared with an oath that 'he wad be content to hang seven years in hell by the breers o' the e'en [eyelashes] to gain such a victory as had that day fallen to Huntly.'

"The Earl of Moray, one of the brothers of the Earl of Douglas, in revenge for Crawford's defeat, burned Huntly's castle of Strathbogie and ravaged his estates, and he shortly after surprised and defeated a body of the Gordons in a morass called Dunkinty. This repulse is commemorated in a jeering song which runs thus: --

'Where did you leave your men,

Thou Gordon so gay?

In the bog of Dunkinty,

Mowing the hay.'

"Lord Huntly died 15th July, 1470, and was buried at Elgin. He was three times married. His first wife, daughter of Robert de Keith, grandson of the Great Marischal of Scotland, brought him a fine estate but no children. His second wife, who was daughter and heiress of Sir John Hay of Tullibody, bore to him a son, Sir Alexander Seton, who inherited his mother's estate, and was ancestor of the Setons of Touch. The Earl's third wife, a daughter of Lord Crichton, High Chancellor of Scotland, bore to him three sons and three daughters. The title and estates were settled by charter on the issue of this third marriage, and the eldest son succeeded his father in 1470."

1031823. Annabella <Unknown>

Notes for Sir Robert Lauder:

http://www.scotclans.org/webclans/htol/lauder8.htm

Sir Robert Lawedre of Bass who was alive before 1364 and, in 1370, witnessed a charter granted by his father Sir Alan. By 1384 he is mentioned in a charter as Lord Justice of Scotland, and Froissart mentions him as "a renowned hero" being present at the battle of Otterburn on the 19th August 1388. He received payments from the customs of North Berwick in 1413-15 and 1420. This Sir Robert also took part in the battle of Nesbit Moor in 1402 where he was taken prisoner by the English. He does not appear to have had that status for long as he had a charter confirmed to him in May 1411 and on 15th June that year he had a safe-conduct from King Henry IV to pass into England. In 1406 King Robert III sent his young prince, later James 1st, with the Duke of Albany to the safety of Sir Robert Lauder’s castle on the Bass from where that prince later left for France, only to be captured by English pirates. In 1424 Sir Robert had a safe-conduct as a hostage for James 1st at Durham and upon James' return to Scotland the King consigned his traitorous cousin Murdoc, eldest son of the Duke of Albany, to the Castle of the Bass, payments for his keep being made to Sir Robert Lawedre. Tytler states that Sir Robert was a firm friend of the King and that he was one of the few people whom James 1st admitted to his confidence. It is thought that the Lauder of Bass arms, which differ in colour from the original Lauder arms, and which also carry a double tressure, possibly being granted because of his friendship with the King, commenced with this Sir Robert. He died before December 1425 leaving by his wife Annabella.

Children of Robert Lauder and Annabella <Unknown> are:

i. James Lauder, born Abt. 1400; died Aft. 1460.

Notes for Sir Robert Lauder:

http://www.scotclans.org/webclans/htol/lauder8.htm

Sir Robert Lawedre of Edringtoun and Bass (d.c 1495) who, as Sir Robert of Edringtoun, is also recorded in May 1423 as one of those ambassadors sent to treat with the English for the liberation of James 1st. On 19th August that year he was an envoy with that King’s ransom. In 1425 he received his father’s estates and was made Justiciar of Scotland. Sir Robert was also an Auditor of Exchequer and in 1426 was Chamberlain to King James 1st. Between 1425 and 1433 he was Governor of Edinburgh castle. He appears to have lived a very long life as his name appears in several charters after that, notably 1470, and 1471 when he gives to his eldest son his lands of Edringtoun, with its castle, in Berwickshire. He was in parliament in 1471, 1478, 1481 and 1483; on an azzize in Edinburgh on 15th June 1480 and on a committee of parliament in 1488. He was served part-heir to his son Oliver Lauder of that Ilk in 1489 and signed a mortification charter for the Church of St.Andrew in North Berwick in 1491. His first wife, Jonet, was still alive in 1471. Upon her death the aged Sir Robert married Agnes Fallow, of Fallow Hall in Cheshire, widow of William Carreboris, a Burgess of Edinburgh. Sir Robert had issue only by his first wife.

Edrington House, & Lands of Edrington & Nether Mordington

By 1425, the lands of Edrington had been granted to Sir Robert Lauder of the Bass [i.e. the Bass Rock at North Berwick], lord justice or justiciary of Scotland south of the Forth. He received a confirmation of the lands in December 1425 from James I. The lands remained in the possession of the Lauders of Bass through the rest of the 15th & 16th centuries.

It looks as it there can be two generations listed here, but with so many records, this man may have simply lived a marvelously long and useful life.

Notes for Archibald Douglas:

4th Earl of Douglas, 1st Duke of Touraine.

" ... immortalised both by Shakespeare and Sir Walter Scott. He was called Tineman (Loseman), in consequence of his having lost almost all the battles that he fought. 'It is true,' says Godscroft, 'that no man was less fortunate, and it is no less true that no man was more valorous.' He married Margaret, daughter of Robert III, and was even more famous and powerful than his father had been in the government of the kingdom. He was accused of having been accessory, along with the Duke of Albany, to the death of the Duke of Rothesay, his brother-in-law, against whom his resentment was said to have been roused by the neglect with which the unfortunate prince treated his wife, the Earl's sister.From his youth upwards Douglas showed great promptitude and activity in defending Scotland against the inroads of the English. In the year 1400 he gained a victory at East Linton over Hotspour and the Earl of March, who had renounced his allegiance to the Scottish king in consequence of the unjust treatment which he had received in the affair of his daughter's affiance to the Duke of Rothesay. The Earl also successfully defended the Castle of Edinburgh against the assault of Henry IV on his invasion of Scotland, the last conducted by an English monarch in person. In September, 1402, however, Douglas was defeated and taken prisoner by Percy at Homildon Hill, near Wooler, where he displayed great courage, but was guilty of very grave errors as a general. He was wounded in four places and lost an eye in this battle, which was gained entirely by the skill of the English archers and the mismanagement of the Scottish leaders, many of whom were left on this fatal field."

Notes for John 'of Gaunt' Plantagenet King of England:

Earl of Richmond 20.9.1343, Duke of Lancaster, Duke of Aquitaine, titular King of Castile

Beaufort was the name of a prominent 15th-century English family that was descended from John of Gaunt and his mistress Catherine Swynford. Although legitimized in 1396, they were barred from succession to the throne, which from 1399 to 1461 was occupied by their cousins of the house of Lancaster. Henry Beaufort, c.1377-1447, bishop of Winchester from 1404 and cardinal from 1426, was a dominant political figure during the reign of Henry Vl. His nephew, Edmund Beaufort, c.1407-1455, and the latter's son Henry, 1436-64, both dukes of Somerset, were the leaders of the Lancastrian party during the Wars of the Roses. The last of the line was Edmund's niece, Margaret Beaufort, 1443-1509, whose second marriage (1455) was to Edmund Tudor, earl of Richmond and half-brother to Henry Vl. Their son became king as Henry Vll after overthrowing Richard III in 1485.

2063361. Isabel Strathecin, born Abt. 1347; died in of Monycabock. She was the daughter of 4126722. Donald Strathecin.

Notes for Sir David Fleming:

An ancestor of President George Herbert Walker Bush.

Sir David Fleming who fought at Otterburn (d. 1405-6), of whom Wyntoun records:

'Schire Davy Flemyng of Cumbirnald,

Lord, a Knight stout and bald,

Trowit and luvit wel with the King:

This ilke gud and gentyl Knycht

That was baith manful, lele and wycht.'

In February 1406, Sir David Fleming with Robert Lauder and a 'strong band' of the 'leading men of Lothian' accompanied by Prince James as a symbol of Royal authority marched on Tantallon castle. It appeared King Robert or rather his lackeys were re-asserting the Stewart claim to Tantallon made and abandoned in 1388. As plots were afoot to kill the Prince, Tantallon was an ideal coastal stronghold to hide the him until he could be shipped to France. The Sinclairs of Herdmanston acting as protectors of young William the 'Red' Douglas 2nd Earl of Angus refused the Royal party entry. The violent verbal barrage between the gatekeeper and Fleming exploded into actual violence which 'shocked' the Royal army into a quick flight to Robert Lauder's North Berwick castle. Expecting an assault by the Tantallon garrison the Prince was rowed out to the even safer Bass Rock castle to await a ship to France. Fleming and the Royal escort appeared trapped. To the east was Tantallon, to the south Herdmanston castle and Byres castle both held by garrisons loyal to the 'Red' Douglas faction. To the west was Dirleton castle held by the Halyburtons whose loyalties were doubtful. Beyond that lay Edinburgh castle held by Archibald Douglas's brother James the 'Gross' Douglas who as an ally of the Duke of Albany wanted Prince James dead so Albany could become King.

With great haste, the Royal army raced passed Dirleton, flying the Royal banner implying the Prince was present. The army was shadowed by the Halyburtons and the Sinclairs who had already sent riders to Edinburgh castle which drew out the 'Black' Douglas army from there. After a lengthy pursuit, the Royal force was 'overtaken' at the battle of Long Hermiston Moor and after 'a terrible fight' routed with their leader David Fleming killed.

2063362. Sir Robert Stewart, born 1339; died 03 Sep 1419. He was the son of 2063656. Robert II Stewart King of Scotland and 2063657. Elizabeth Mure. He married 2063363. Muriella de Keith Aft. 1380.

2063363. Muriella de Keith, born Abt. 1351 in Argyllshire, Scotland; died Bet. 01 Jan 1447/48 - 1449 in Scotland. She was the daughter of 4126726. William Keith and 4126727. Margaret Fraser.

Notes for Sir Robert Stewart:

Duke of Albany; Earl of Fife

When Robert II died, he was succeeded by his 53-year-old son John, who took the name Robert III (as his given name John brought back defeatist memories of John Balliol). Robert suffered other disadvantages: he was born illegitimate (made legitimate in 1347), and he had been disabled in 1388 by a horse's kick, so that he had been regarded as unfit to govern for his father. He was dominated by his younger brother, the Duke of Albany, and when he tried to rule for himself, 'he who was strong oppressed the weak and the whole kingdom was one den of thieves', according to one of the chroniclers. In 1399, the Scottish Parliament condemned his misrule and appointed his elder son David, Duke of Rothesay to govern for him. Albany, however, imprisoned his nephew and David died in mysterious circumstances in 1402 at Falkland.

Apparently fearing for his own life, Robert III retired to the greater safety of Rothesay Castle on the Isle of Bute and in 1406 arranged to send his younger son James to France. He died soon after hearing that the 11-year-old prince had been captured at sea by English pirates. Painfully aware of his own deficiencies, he had exclaimed, 'Bury me in a midden and write, "Here lies the worst of kings and the most wretched of men".'

"By virtue of his marriage to Lady Margaret Graham (her fourth marriage) he was created Earl of Menteith on 26 Mar 1371, the day on which ihs father was crowned. On the 30th of that month, Lady Isabella, Countess of Fife, recognised the Earl as her true and lawaful heir-apparent in virtue of the entail made by her father, Sir Duncan, Earl of Fife, in facour of Alan, Earl of Menteith, grandfather of Earl Robert's wife, and of the entail made by Lady Isabella herself and her late husband, elder brother of Sir Robert, in his favour. A meeting of Parliament, held at Scone in April, 1373, ordained that, failing the eldest son ofthe King and his heirs, the succession to the Crown should devolve on the Earl of Fife and Menteith, who was to take precedence of the younger sons of the sovereign. He received numerous grants of land from his father, with whom he seems to have been a favourite, and he was appointed in 1382 to the office of High Chamberlain, left vacant by the death of Sir John Lyon of Glammis.

In consequence of the advanced age of his father, Robert II, and the physical infirmity of his brother, the Earl of Carrick, aftewards Robert III, the Estates deemed it necessary in 1388 to appoint the Earl of Fife and Menteith Guardian of the Kingdom, and he was virtually its ruler thenceforth until the end of his life. In the year 1398 he was created Duke of Albany, at the same time that the King's eldest son, the Earl of Carrick and Athole, was made Duke of Rothesay. Albany was crafty and ambitious, but he was possessed of great administrative ability, and his pacific policy secured for Scotland under his sway a happy exemption from those wars which for many years had exhausted the resources of the country and retarded all social improvement"

Notes for Marjory Stewart:

Marjory (Marcelline) Stewart. She was listed as the daughter of Muriella Keith in some ancestries.

Notes for Sir Duncan 'Chief' nan Ahi Campbell:

Duncan (Na-Adh) Campbell

"For several successive generations, though nothing worthy of special notice occurred, the chiefs of the Campbell clan continued steadily to extend their territorial possessions and to augment their power. Kilmun -- the last resting-place of the family -- the barony of Milport, and extensive estates in Cowal, Knapdale, and Arran fell into their hands in the early part of the fourteenth century. The first of the family who received the title of Argyll was Sir Duncan, the great-grandson of Sir Colin and nephew of Annabella Drummond, the Queen of Robert III. He was accounted one of the wealthies barons in Scotland, and in 1424 was one of the hostages for the payment of the expense of the maintenance of James I during his long imprisonment in England. At this date Sir Duncan's annual revenue was set down as 1,500 merks -- a larger income than that of any of the other hostages, except Lord Douglas of Dalkeith, whose estates were valued at the same amount. He was made a Lord of Parliament in 1445, under the title of Lord Campbell. He was the founder of the collegiate church of Kilmun, where he was buried in 1453. His first wife was Marjory or Mariotta Stewart, daughter of Robert, Duke of Albany, brother of King Robert III, and Regent of the kingdom during the imprisonment of his nephew, James I, in England. This was the second intermarriage of the House of Argyll with the royal family of Scotland. Lord Campbell's youngest son by this royal lady is the ancestor of the Campbells of Breadalbane."

v. Sir John Stewart, born Abt. 1381; died 1424 in killed in Battle at Verneuil, France; married Elizabeth Douglas; born Bef. 1392; died Aft. 1451.

Notes for Sir John Stewart:

1st Earl of Buchan, constable of France

"At the death of [Sir Alexander Stewart, the Wolf of Badenoch, Earl of Buchan] ... in 1394, the earldom devolved upon his brothe [this man's father], Robert, Duke of Albany ; but in 1408, as Regent, he conferred the title upon Sir John Stewart, his second son. In 1419, with consent of the Estates, the Earl was sent with an army of seven thousand men to the assistance of the French king in his contest with England for his crown. These auxiliaries won great renown under the leadership of Buchan, and rendered important services to the French in their struggle for independence. On the 22nd of March, 1421, they defeated, at Beauge, a large English force, under the Duke of Clarence, brother of Henry V. Fourteen hundred men, along with the Earl of Kent and Lords Gray and Ross, fell in this encounter. Clarence himself was unhorsed and wounded by Sir William Swinton, and, as he strove to regain his steed, he was felled to the earth and killed by the mace of the Earl of Buchan. As a reward for this signal victory the Dauphin conferred upon Buchan the high office of Constable of France. Three years later, however, the Scottish auxiliaries were almost annihilated at the fatal battle of Verneuil, and their commander, the Earl of Buchan, was among the slain."

"... had an only daughter ... The earldom of Buchan devolved upon his brother, Murdoch, duke of Albany, at whose execution, in 1425, it was forfeited to the Crown."

Notes for Elizabeth Douglas:

daughter of Archibald 4th Earl of Douglas

 

2063364. Archibald Douglas, born Abt. 1325 in of Hermiston, Roxburghshire, Scotland; died Bef. 09 Feb 1399/00 in of Hermiston, Roxburghshire, Scotland. He was the son of 4126728. James Douglas and 4126729. <Concubines>. He married 2063365. Joan of Strathearn Bef. 1362 in Scotland.

2063365. Joan of Strathearn, born Bef. 1347; died Bet. 1408 - Aug 1409 in of Hermiston, Roxburghshire, Scotland. She was the daughter of 4126730. Malise of Strathearn and 4126731. Joanna Menteith.

Notes for Archibald Douglas:

Archibald 'The Grim', 3rd Earl of Douglas ; Archibald is listed as an illegitimate child of James Lord of Douglas who was killed in 1330.

" .. surnamed the 'Grim,' from his swart complexion and stern expression of countenance. Before he succeeded to the earldom he fought with great gallantry in the wars of both France and England. In 1356 he accompanied William, Earl of Douglas, to France, and was taken prisoner at the battle of Poitiers (13th September), but made his escape through a dexterous strategem of Sir William Ramsay of Colluthie. In 1378 he inflicted a signal defeat, near Melrose, of a body of English spearmen and archers under Sir Thomas Musgrave. Before the battle he knighted on the field two of the King's sons, who were under his banner, along with his own son. The conflict was keenly contested, but was quickly decided. Douglas, according to his general custom, as Froissart mentions, when he found the fight becoming hot, dismounted, and wielding a large two-handled sword, made such havoc among the enemy that they gave way on all sides. Great numbers were slain, and Musgrave and his son, with many other knights and squires, were taken prisoners. After the Earl became the head of the family, he was regarded as the most powerful subject in the kingdom He was noted for his courage, firmness, and sagacity, and not less for his pride. Hume of Godscroft says, 'He was a man nothing inferior to any of his predecessors in any kind of virtue. In piety he was singular through his whole life, and most religious according to those times! He founded the Collegiate Church of Bothwell, a part of which still remains to attest its former magnificence. Godscroft affirms that the Earl had a mind free from all ambition, but his conduct in regard to the marriage of his daughter Marjory to Daivd, Duke of Rothesay, the heir-apparent to the throne, shows that he was scarcely entitled to that eulogium. The Prince was affianced to the daughter of the Earl of March; but Douglas, jealous of the aggrandisement of a rival noble, by the offer of a much more splendid dowry prevailed upon Albany, the King's brother, to get that contract set aside, on the plea that the sanction of the Estates had not been given to it, and to wed Rothesay to Marjory Douglas. The result of this dishonourable transaction was highly injurious to the happiness of the Prince, and the peace of the country. Notwithstanding, the influence of the Earl was on the whole beneficial during the feeble reign of Robert III; and when he and the Queen-mother, Anabella Drummond, and the venerable Bishop Traill of St. Andrews, all died, A.D. 1400, within a short time of each other, according to Fordun it was commonly said throughout the kingdom that the glory and honesty of Scotland was buried with these three noble persons."

The Great Historic Families of Scotland, James Taylor

Notes for Joan of Strathearn:

Joan married 1st Thomas Moray, Lord of Bothwell, and was widowed. One date of death of bef. 23 Jul 1362 leads to the question - did Archibald Douglas marry twice?

Joanna Murray, Lady of Bothwell.

Children of Archibald Douglas and Joan of Strathearn are:

i. Sir William Douglas, born Aft. 1362; died 1391 in killed at Dantzic, Prussia; married Egidia 'Jill' Stewart; born Abt. 1362.

Notes for Sir William Douglas:

Lord of Nithsdale ; "Natural son of Sir Archibald Douglas" ; King Robert, along with the hand of his daughter, bestowed upon Douglas the lordship of Nithsdale, and also appointed him Warden of the West Border, and Sheriff of Dumfries.

"After a truce was made with England, he joined the Teutonic knights in their crusade against the Pagans in Prussia and Lithuania, and was appointed admiral of their fleet. He is said to have been created Duke of Prussia and Prince of Dantzic for his services in raising the siege of that town and expelling the Pagans from the district. His countrymen were also thenceforth made freemen of Dantzic. He was murdered at Dantzic, about the year 1392, by a band of assassins hired by an Englishman, whom Fordun terms Lord Clifford, who had fastened a quarrel on him."

ii. Archibald Douglas, born Abt. 1370; died 17 Aug 1424 in Battle of Verneuil, France; married Margaret Stewart Bef. 1390; born Aft. 1370; died Bef. Sep 1465.

Notes for Archibald Douglas:

4th Earl of Douglas, 1st Duke of Touraine.

" ... immortalised both by Shakespeare and Sir Walter Scott. He was called Tineman (Loseman), in consequence of his having lost almost all the battles that he fought. 'It is true,' says Godscroft, 'that no man was less fortunate, and it is no less true that no man was more valorous.' He married Margaret, daughter of Robert III, and was even more famous and powerful than his father had been in the government of the kingdom. He was accused of having been accessory, along with the Duke of Albany, to the death of the Duke of Rothesay, his brother-in-law, against whom his resentment was said to have been roused by the neglect with which the unfortunate prince treated his wife, the Earl's sister.From his youth upwards Douglas showed great promptitude and activity in defending Scotland against the inroads of the English. In the year 1400 he gained a victory at East Linton over Hotspour and the Earl of March, who had renounced his allegiance to the Scottish king in consequence of the unjust treatment which he had received in the affair of his daughter's affiance to the Duke of Rothesay. The Earl also successfully defended the Castle of Edinburgh against the assault of Henry IV on his invasion of Scotland, the last conducted by an English monarch in person. In September, 1402, however, Douglas was defeated and taken prisoner by Percy at Homildon Hill, near Wooler, where he displayed great courage, but was guilty of very grave errors as a general. He was wounded in four places and lost an eye in this battle, which was gained entirely by the skill of the English archers and the mismanagement of the Scottish leaders, many of whom were left on this fatal field."

Notes for Jean Douglas:

Jean Douglas is an unproven daughter of Archibald the Grim

Notes for Richard Rutherfurd:

"Sir Richard de Ruthirfurde of that ilk, in possession of all the estates and dignities of the family, was a person of great interest and activity on the Bordres around 1390, and was a mighty favorite of King Robert III of Scotland." From book "Genealogical History of the Rutherford Family", vol.1, 1969, p.10, from "The Genealogical and Heraldric History of the Landed Gentry of Great Britian and Ireland" Vol. 2, 1882, page 1594.

"The Rutherford castles are called Edgerston, Hunthill, Hundalee, Fairnington and Fairnilee - among others. Rutherford is a location on the Tweed River in present day Maxton Parish. There may have been a bastil-house there, but never a castle. Sir Richard Rutherford was styled 'Sir Richard Rutherford of that ilk' meaning he lived at Rutherford on the Tweed not further up stream in Peebles-shire"

 

2063366. Henry St. Clair, born Abt. 1369 in Rosslyn, Scotland; died 01 Feb 1420/21. He was the son of 4126732. Henry St. Clair and 4126733. Jean Haliburton. He married 2063367. Egidia 'Jill' Douglas Bet. 1404 - 17 Nov 1407.

2063367. Egidia 'Jill' Douglas, born Aft. 1387 in of Nithsdale; died Aft. 1438. She was the daughter of 4126734. Sir William Douglas and 4126735. Egidia 'Jill' Stewart.

Notes for Henry St. Clair:

11th Barron of Rosslyn; 2nd Earl of Orkney, Lord High Admiral of Scotland, Chief Justice of Scotland, and Chief Attendant of Prince James and James I. Earl 1400-1420.

Henry had a no less eventful life than his father, if somewhat less productive. His date of birth is not known but he was probably into his thirties when his father was murdered. It is not known whether Henry accompanied his father on his North American adventure, but as Henry inherited his father's position as Admiral of the Seas, he was amost certainly a sailor and navigator of equal competence. He was possibly less able as a soldier. He was captured at the battle of Homildon Hill in September 1402 and remained a prisoner for some while. Soon after his release he was charged with escorting the young prince James (James I) to France for safekeeping until April 1406. James, who was only elevn, was unused to sea journeys and requested that they land. The ship and occupants were captured and Henry spent several more years in prison. Henry was released several times under safe conduct and eventually returned to Scotland helping in defence of the lands against the English onslaught. Henry also fought in France, on the side of the French, and was present at their defeat at Agincourt (1415). There is little doubt that Henry saw his allegiance first to the Scottish crown and did little to renew his loyalties to the Norwegian crown, even though he held his title as a vassal to that authority. Henry died of the plague in 1420, probably aged about fifty. He was succeeded by his son.

Children of Henry St. Clair and Egidia Douglas are:

i. Sir William Sinclair, born Abt. 1404; died Bet. 1480 - 1484; married Elizabeth Douglas Bef. 1440; born Bef. 1392; died Aft. 1451.

Notes for Sir William Sinclair:

3rd earl of Orkney, 1434-71.

William was only sixteen when his father died and thus not of an age to succeed to the earldom. King Erik of Norway used this as an opportunity to re-exert his authority in the Orkneys, and he appointed several governors to the islands from amongst the Sinclair family (as they now began to spell their name). It was not until 1434 that Erik vested William with the full title, though it was evident that William saw his loyalties first to the Scottish kings James I and James II. He was made Chancellor of Scotland and was the Scottish ambassador to France on several occasions. He was rewarded with the reinstatement of the earldom of Caithness in 1455 and established large estates throughout northern Scotland. The best was at his ancestral hom at Roslin in Midlothian, where he undertook extensive rebuilding works from 1446 on. Sir William became the guardian of the Holy Relics of Scotland. In 1468 the marriage of James III with Margaret of Denmark brought Orkney and Shetland to Scotland as part of the dowry. In 1471 William was asked to resign the earldom of Orkney and was given lands in Fife in compensation. William was more than content with this arrangement as the bulk of his revenues came from lands outside Orkney, and his main home was at Roslin. He settled there for the remaining nine years of his life, expending most of his resources on the completion of the castle.

2063378. William Ruthven, born Bef. 1360.

Notes for William Ruthven:

"The Ruthvens derive their descent from a Norwegian baron named Thor, who, in the reign of King Edgar, founded the Church of Edinham, or Ednam, on the banks of the Tweed, the birthplace, five centuries later, of Thomson, the poet of the 'Seasons.' The charter which Thor granted to this religious establishment is a model for its brevity and clearness, and may serve to illustrate the process by which the waste places of the country were peopled and the inhabitants civilised. 'To the sons of Holy Mother Church,' ran this interesting document, 'Thor the Long, greeting in the Lord: be it known that Aedgar my lord, King of Scots, gave to me Aednaham, a desert; that, with his help and my own money I peopled it, and have built a church in honour of St. Cuthbert, which church, with a ploughgate of land, I have given to God and to St. Cuthbert and his monks to be possessed by them for ever.'

"Suconus, the son of this Thor, who fourished in the reign of William the Lion, obtained a grant in the manors of Ruthven, Tippermuir, and other lands in Perthshire, and was also superior of the territory of Crawford, in the Upper Ward of Lanarkshire, which the progenitors of the great family of the Lindsays held as vassals under him.

"The descendants of Suconus assumed the surname of Ruthven from one of their Perthshire estates, and no fewer than three great barons of this designation are mentioned in the Ragman Roll among those who swore fealty to Edward I in 1296.

"Sir William de Ruthven, the seventh in descent from Suconus, obtained from Robert III (b 1337 d 1406) the office of sheriff of Perth, or St. Johnston, as it was then called, which became hereditary in the family."

He was celebrated by Andrew de Wyntoun as one of four Scottish knights to mimic battle with the English knights and win, gaining for himself great commendation from this event.

He was given charter to the lands of Edinbancory and Craiglogy on 8 November 1402 by Isabel Douglas, Countess of Mar, and confirmed by King Robert III, on 23 June 1405. These lands had also been chartered in 1364 to Sir Alexander's great-grandfather.

Alexander fought in the Battle of Harlaw in 1411 with such success that General Alexander Stuart, Earl of Mar, befriended him. He followed the Earl to Flanders where they engaged in battle under the Duke of Burgandy. He was also given a safe conduct in Dover on 9 June 1421 for entry to and from England, and another in October 1421 permitting him to pass with 40 men at arms and attendants to 100 persons, and to visit King James in France under the control of King Henry V.

He received charter for the lands of Fodderbirse in Aboyne from John, Earl of Buchan. He was granted the lands of Alford by Alexander, Earl of Mar in 1423; granted a new charter for the lands and Barony of Forbes on 16 October 1423 by Regent, Murdoch of Albany; granted the lands of Meikle Fintray in December 1423 by John, Earl of Buchan, Elizabeth's first cousin once removed; granted the lands of Easter Cluny in 1425 by William, Earl of Angus, Elizabeth's brother; granted the lands of Alford and Edinbanchory, the lands and Barony of Forbes, the lands of Kearn and others in the Earldom of Mar, on 6 October 1431; and granted the lands of Ballindurno and half of Balshangy with the mill of Torquhonochy in 1431 by Elizabeth Keith, heiress of the barony of Aboyne in consideration for his help in establishing her right to her inheritance.

2063494. William Hay, born Abt. 1380 in Lochorwart Castle, Gorebridge, Midlothian, Scotland; died Bef. Aug 1421 in Of Locherworth and Yester, Scotland. He was the son of 4126988. Sir Thomas de Haya and 4126989. Christian Wardlaw. He married 2063495. Joanna Gifford.

2063495. Joanna Gifford, born Aft. 1380. She was the daughter of 4126990. Sir Hugh Gifford.

Notes for William Hay:

Laird of Yester ; Sheriff of Peeblesshire or Tweeddale. Commissioner appointed to treat with the English. April 27, 1409, Given safe-conduct to England on 5 occasions. 1420, Founded the Collegiate Church of Yester.

" .. was Sheriff of Peeblesshire. He married Jean or Joanna, eldest daughter of Sir Hugh Gifford of Yester, the head of an old family which settled in Scotland in the reign of David I, and obtained from that monarch lands in East Lothian. William the Lion conferred upon him the barony of Yester. In the course of time the parish which bore that name came to be popularly called Gifford. His grandson, Hugh Gifford, was one of the guardians of Alexander III and his queen. He was regarded as a skillful magician, and several anecdotes are told of his magical art, and his control over demons and the powers of nature. Fordun mentions that in Gifford's castle there was a capacious cavern, said to have been formed by magical art, and called in the country, 'Bo-Hall,' that is, Hobgoblin Hall. Sir David Dalrymple, in his 'Annals,' says, 'A stair of twenty-four steps led down to this apartment, which is a large and spacious hall, with an arched roof; and though it has stood for many centuries, and been exposed to the external air for a period of fifty or sixty years, it is still as firm and entire as if it had only stood a few years. From the floor of this hall another stair of thirty-six steps leads down to a pit, which hath a communication with Hope's Water.' This ancient and strong castle, which stands on an elevated peninsula, near the junction of two streams, has long been in ruins, though the Goblin Hall was tenanted by the Marquis of Tweeddale's falconer so late as 1737. Sir Hugh's appearance and dress are vividly described by Sir Walter Scott in the third canto of 'Marmion;' and of the hall he says --

" 'Of lofty roof and ample size,

Beneath the castle deep it lies;

To hew the living rock profound,

The floor to pave, the arch to round,

There never toiled a mortal arm;

It all was wrought by word and charm.'

"Sir Hugh Gifford's heiress brought the barony of Yester into the Tweeddale family, and they quartered the arms of Gifford with their own.

"The Church of Yester, of which Sir William obtained the patronage along with the estate, was originally called St. Bathan's. It was converted by him into a cllegiate establishment for a provost, six prebendaries, and two choristers; and in this state it continued until the Reformation.

"Though the Hays were henceforth designated as of Yester, they still continued to reside at Neidpath Castle, on the banks of the Tweed, near Peebles. In all probability the newer part of that castle was built by Sir William in the early part of the fifteenth century. For the sake of security the walls of the new structure were made enormously thick and strong; but a serious mistake was committed in a military point of view, in allowing teh old castle to remain, for its walls were greatly inferior in strength and thickness to those of the new part of the fortress, and the old part consequently formed its vulnerable part as soon as artillery came into use.

"Sir William took for his second wife, Alice, daughter of Sir Thomas Hay, of Errol, and had issue by both wives. The first bore to him three sons and three daughters, the second a son and a daughter. The eldest son, William, predeceased him; the second son, Thomas, was one of the hostages for James I in 1423, when his income was estimated at six hundred marks yearly. He survived his father only four years, and died unmarried in 1432. He was succeeded by his brother, David ..."

"In may 1400 William Hay of Yester accompanied George the 'Red' Douglas Earl of Angus of Tantallon castle to a meeting at Bothwell castle with Archibald the 'Grim' 3rd Earl of Douglas, to defuse an ongoing feud between the 'Red' Douglas and James Douglas of Dalkeith (Archibald's ally) over possession of the lands of Liddesdale. The 'Red' Douglas and his allies had burnt the lands around Dalkeith castle and other estates throughout Scotland "To recover from James Douglas all mails and rents of Liddesdale which he wrongfully occupies." Eventually an agreement was made where the 'Red' Douglas faction would end their attacks in exchange for some of the Liddesdale lands.

"In 1402 William Hay of Yester marched on Newcastle with the Scots army under the command of Archibald 4th Earl of Douglas. After retiring from Northumberland the Scots carrying much booty were intercepted and routed by 'Hotspur' Percy and his expert Welsh archers at the battle of Homildon Hill, near Wooler. William Hay along with the Earl of Douglas was among the many nobles unhorsed and captured during the battle. By 1403 Hay of Yester was back in Scotland signing land charters for the still captive Earl of Douglas. At this time a dispute arose between the Percies and King Henry IV of England over who could claim the ransom money for the many Scots nobles taken at Homildon. This led to open rebellion where 'Hotspur' Percy led Welsh and English rebels against King Henry at the battle of Shrewsbury. During the battle 'Hotspur' was killed and the rebels defeated.

In 1406 a form of rebellion was also brewing in Scotland. The Stewart of Albany the ambitious brother of the weak willed King Robert III of Scots (1390 -1406) who had been responsible for the death of Prince David at Falkland Palace was plotting to kill Robert's remaining son Prince James. So rushed plans were made to send the Prince abroad. For some strange reason David Flemming with Prince James and the 'leading men of Lothian' tried to seize Tantallon castle from the young 'Red' Douglas who's father had died after Homildon Hill possibly in an effort to use this as a safe stronghold to house the Prince before his evacuation to France. However the 'Red' Douglas's grandmother, a fiery individual and her kin the Sinclairs of Herdmanston were in no mood for political games and their verbal rebuke broke out into actual violence with Flemming and his 'strong band' fleeing with the Prince to the nearby North Berwick castle. From here the Prince was taken to the even safer Bass Rock Island castle opposite Tantallon in the Firth of Forth, to await a ship to France. Meanwhile the decoy royal army led by Flemming raced from North Berwick back up the coast drawing a rebel army out from Edinburgh castle led by James the 'Gross' Douglas (an ally of Albany). The royal army was 'overtaken' and routed at the battle of long Hermiston Moor and Flemming killed. Unfortunately all this sacrifice was for nothing for the Prince en route to France was captured by the English and held captive for 18years.

"In 1407 the Earl of Douglas appointed 'his very dear squire' William Hay as Sheriff of Peebles. Later he also gave Hay lands in Galloway. By 1418 Douglas ordered his men to 'impose distress' on the people of Galloway for refusing to pay their rent to their new Master William Hay. Showing that he like his father Archibald the 'Grim' ruled by fear and force of arms."

Notes for Sir David Hay:

Laird of Locherworth and Yester; Ancestor of the Hays headed by the Marquess of Tweeddale.

"David married the sister of the first Earl of Angus, and relict of the first Lord Forbes. He obtained with her the lands of Gliswell and Torbirus.

"Father Hay states that there was a double marriage, on the authority of a document at Hermistoun, dated 4th December, 1409, and of a bond, dated 12th December, 1410, given by the Countess of Mar for one hundred pounds Scots to Sir William Hay of Locharward, 'because William, Earle of Angus, her sone, married Margaret Hay, his daughter.' It thus appears that the sister of the first Earl of Angus married Sir William Hay's son, and the daughter of Sir William married the Earl of Angus.

"Sir David Hay had by his wife two sons and a daughter."
