Ancestors of Restora Loyd Fauquier

 

Generation No. 1

1. Restora Loyd Fauquier, born 09 Feb 1909 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA; died 10 Dec 1988 in Shreveport, Caddo, LA. He was the son of 2. Joseph Walker Fauquier and 3. Elizabeth Harriet 'Lizzie' Farrell. He married (1) Ruth Catherine Junker 16 Nov 1932 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA. She was born 31 Oct 1898 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA, and died 03 Jan 1987 in Shreveport, Caddo, LA. She was the daughter of Adam Junker and Margaret Deuchert.

Notes for Restora Loyd Fauquier:

Loyd: Early in life a private detective, a soldier, later a career government employee. A prison guard in Oklahoma, and a Treasury agent ("revenoor") who carried a gun, but "never had to use it." A Mason, 33rd Degree, President of the Caddo Lodge. He was a Presbyterian deacon and elder, and he was a singer.

He was an agent for the alcohol and tobacco tax division of the Treasury Department. He was appointed investigator for the alcohol tax unit in New Orleans after prohibition was repealed on July 1, 1933. He had also worked for the Treasury Department a year before the repeal. He was assigned to the Shreveport district on Sept. 15, 1941, with 16 North Louisiana parishes in his jurisdiction. During his service, he was sent on special assignments to Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Alabama, Florida, and Mississippi. He also worked for the department on regular duty at McComb, Miss., and Baton Rouge and Jennings. (from a newspaper article of his retirement). He described his job as "busting stills."

He joined the army and was preparing to serve overseas as a photographer on reconnaissance missions, when World War II ended in 1945. He was quite a photographer, and did his own development and colorizing (hand painting) of portraits.

Notes for Ruth Catherine Junker:

Her godmother was Miss Katie Kolman, and her godfather was Mr. L. Herman.

As a young girl, she was raised in an Evangelical church, as her parents were descendants of German immigrants. She was nine years older than her husband, and had been working at her father's store in Carrollton, now part of New Orleans, for several years after her schooling was completed. She never learned to drive. She regularly played the piano, accompanying her husband as he sang on numerous occasions.

Generation No. 2

2. Joseph Walker Fauquier, born 18 Mar 1872 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA; died 22 Oct 1918 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA. He was the son of 4. Restora Mealer Fauquier and 5. Mary Ann Walker. He married 3. Elizabeth Harriet 'Lizzie' Farrell 28 Mar 1899 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA.

3. Elizabeth Harriet 'Lizzie' Farrell, born 04 Nov 1877 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA; died 02 Feb 1961 in Jackson, East Feliciana, LA. She was the daughter of 6. Daniel O'Connor O'Farrell and 7. Sophia Haybrecht Habrecht.

Notes for Joseph Walker Fauquier:

A conductor of streetcars in New Orleans. Listed as "carman" on death certificate. Was a "good provider" before he was blinded by glaucoma. He died at age 45, of pneumonia.

He was born at Mr. J. B. McAllister's, corner of Julia and Carondolet. He was baptized on 16th day by Rev. W. B. Tudor, pastor Carondolet St. Church. (Presbyterian) The family was probably Lutheran (Evangelical), as was mentioned in his wife's records. It appears that the family moved from the eastern end of the garden district, not far from downtown, to an area in or near Carrollton some time after Joseph's death. His son Restora Loyd was married to an Evangelical woman.

Notes for Elizabeth Harriet 'Lizzie' Farrell:

Lizzie Farrell went to school until the fourth grade. As a consequence, she was said to be "backward, especially in grammar." She was a "Lutheran" and "belongs to the Evangelical Church." She lived with her father and did some housework for a neighbor while going to school, and after leaving school continued to do this kind of work until she was married at 20. Her husband, Joseph Walker Fauquier, was a street car conductor, and a "good provider." He went blind from glaucoma, making it necesary for Lizzie to obtain employment to support the family. Her daughter helped until her marriage two years later, at which time the middle children pitched in. She cleaned cars for the Pullman Palace Car Co. at the I.C. Depot, making from $1.40 to $2.90 a day. After that she cleaned curtains at home, making $200 a season, and was helped by the children. "With this help she has always managed to get along without serious difficulty financially." Her husband died in 1918, about eight years before she lost her youngest son, at age ten, of an accident involving a toy pistol, which caused tetanus. The next day, she was admitted to a mental hospital in New Orleans, and after a few releases and readmissions, she lived out her life in East Louisiana State Hospital, Jackson, LA suffering from mental illness.

Her records indicate several things of genealogical value: She had four brothers and four sisters, living in good health at the time of her admission (1926-7). Her father lived to age 70 (dying prior to 1928) and died in an auto accident. Her father's mother died of TB when over 70 years of age, and her mother's mother died of a lightning strike (age unknown). Her mother died of chronic dyspepsia and floating kidney, and predeceased her father. Her children, in 1926, were described "Her first child is 27, a girl, who is married and in good health, and the mother of two children of her own. The second is 23, married, in good health, and has one child. The third is 18, and is a pressman in a printing office [my grandfather Restora Loyd Fauquier]." At least two of her sisters were "deaf and dumb." Her daughter, Mary (Fauquier) Broker, corresponded with her until her death, and selected correspondence with the hospital administrators elicits other medical and personal details about Lizzie, that she "worked in the kitchen" and was most often pleasant to be around.

Children of Joseph Fauquier and Elizabeth Farrell are:

Generation No. 3

4. Restora Mealer Fauquier, born 10 Dec 1843 in Donaldsonville, Ascension, LA; died 19 Aug 1901 in Jersey City, Hudson, NJ. He was the son of 8. William Henry Fauquier and 9. Anthem Marie Hardwick. He married 5. Mary Ann Walker 23 Feb 1869 in New Orleans, LA.

5. Mary Ann Walker, born 01 Nov 1848 in Madison Co., MS; died 21 Mar 1888 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA. She was the daughter of 10. Joseph Burch Walker and 11. Rebecca Jane Ridley.

Notes for Restora Mealer Fauquier:

Restorer Mealer Fauquier

An only child of a carpenter with property and slaves, curiously not mentioned on census of 1850 with parents (at school, with relatives?). Variously claimed to be French, one census lists him as from "Maine", another "Alabama", although family lived in Donaldsonville, LA, and he was at least fourth generation American. His children were raised by their aunt in Mississippi, and his wife died young. He left his wife and after she died he married his second cousin's widow in New Jersey.

Married in Carondolet St. Church, New Orleans by father of the bride, pastor Joseph Burch Walker.

Restora lived at 307 Coliseum and was a clerk in 1868. He was a property clerk living at 266 6th in 1870. His address in 1871 was 293 Carondelet. He was a cotton clerk at Richardson & May, living on Melpomene at Magazine in 1873. He lived at 493 S. Rampart in 1874. He lived at 120 Philip, with the Rev. JB Walker, his father-in-law, in 1876. He was a bookkepper for AW Hyatt in 1877, and moved to 562 1/2 Camp in 1878. He was a clerk for the C. St. L. & N. O. RR, living at 489 Baronne in 1879. His wife died in 1888.

Other than in New Jersey as a Quaker name, I have only found a similar name on one other individual, coincidentally from that area of SC from which the Hardwick family was, and not known to be related:

Key Restored Mobley born 11 Mar 1878. I am convinced that in the Fauquier & Mealer families, this name is a patriotic name and not a Quaker name.

Notes for Mary Ann Walker:

Suffered illness as a child, during epidemics of New Orleans. Tin-type photograph exists.

Ann died March 21, 1888, of exhaustive shock, at her home at 223 Delachaise in New Orleans. She was buried in Ocean City, MS (near Gulfport) in the Walker family plot. Her children were raised by an uncle and aunt, Mr. M.A. and Mrs. Sally B. Walker McClaugherty of Pecan Grove dairy, near Mississippi City, MS. (now Gulfport, within site of the intersection of two major highways). Mary Ann's brother was William W. Walker, in his day a well-known author and one-time school-teacher (1870) and (as mentioned in his father Rev. Dr. Joseph Burch Walker's obituary) a contributor to the New Orleans Picayune.

Notes for Sophia Haybrecht Habrecht:

Sophia Haybrecht

Her name is spelled several ways on several documents, including: Sophie Haybrick and Sophia Haybrecht and Sophia Haybreck and Sophia Haybreak and Sophie Haybrecht. Perhaps Sophia Habrecht. A famous maker of German scientific instruments was named Isaac Habrecht of Strasbourg (1544-1620 and son by same name 1589-1633), and a Habrecht family was in Ohio before 1901.

This name was written (script) on the marriage license of daughter Lizzie Farrell. Her family may have come from Quincy, Illinois. The family had 4 sons and 4 daughters.

Sophie Farrell: "On Friday April 29, 1892, at 6:00 am, Sophie Haybrake beloved wife of Daniel a resident of this city 35 years, at 41 years 1 month and 24 days, a native of Louisiana."

9. Anthem Marie Hardwick, born Abt. 1820 in Franklin Co., AL; died 21 Sep 1878 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA. She was the daughter of 18. James Hardwick and 19. Nancy Mealer.

Notes for William Henry Fauquier:

The family Bible indicates that William was born 2 Sep 1802. Census records indicate he claimed to be born around 1810, and his obituary indicates he was born around 1812.

A local history The Flight Of A Century by Sidney Albert Marchand (1936) lists an 1848 civic recognition by the town elders of Donaldsonville to heroes of the war with Mexico. W. H. Fauquier is listed as one of the committee honoring young soldiers.

He is said to have been the mayor of Donaldsonville in 1861-62, but exited Donaldsonville during 1862 after New Orleans fell in April & Donaldsonville in August.

William Henry Fauquier died of consumption on January 28, 1864. The following obituary was published in the New Orleans Daily Picayune on February 4, 1864.

New Orleans, Thursday Morning Feb 4, 1864, Daily Picayune:

"Died, of consumption at 9:o'clock on Thursday morning, January 28, William H. Fauquier, in the 52d year of his age, native of Norfolk, Va., but for the last thirty five years a resident of this state.

"He is gone! No more will his smile brighten the home he has left desolate. No more will the sound of his tottering steps be hears. His great patience, his resignation to the will of God, his love for the Saviour, and, indeed, his whole life, have graven deep lines on the tablet of memory, which affection will often trace with emotions of ??? pleasure. A mournful void now rests where ??? he administered confort, but let us not mourn for him whose brightest anticipations have become delightful realities. His sould has purified itself for an ascent far above and beyond those painful vicissitudes and depressive casualties which so checker the life of man.

"May He who tempereth the wind to the shorn lamb soften the severity of this dispensation to the disconsolate widow and only surviving son.

"Thou art gone to the grave, and its mansion forsaking,

Perchance thy weak spirit in fear lingr'd long

And the sound which thou didst hear was the seraphim's song."

*end of obituary*

Note: "There is a Providence that tempers the wind to the shorn lamb--so says that great divine, Shakspeare" - quote which indicates the probable original source for the idea.

and a more complete writing, unattributed, of the poem mentioned just above:

"Thou art gone to the grave; we no longer behold thee,

Nor tread the rough paths of the world by thy hand;

But the wide arms of mercy are spread to enfold thee.

And we’ll meet thee again in the heavenly land.

Thou art gone to the grave; and its mansions forsaking,

Perchance thy weak spirit in doubt lingered long;

But the sunshine of heaven beamed bright on thy waking,

And the sound thou didst hear was the Seraphim’s song.

Thou art gone to the grave; but ’twere wrong to deplore thee,

When God was thy trust, thy guardian and guide;

He gave thee, He took thee, and soon will restore thee.

In the blest Lodge above, where the faithful abide."

Notes for Anthem Marie Hardwick:

Anthem may have had brother Restora or Restorer Hardwick, who witnessed her wedding. She was a minor at the time of her wedding.

Ann Marie Hardwick Fauquier lived at 307 Coliseum in New Orleans in 1868, with her son Restora. Property records from Ascension Parish show that she and Restora sold lots in Donaldsonville about this time. She was listed as a music teacher, living at 579 St. Charles in 1871. She taught at a private school, living at 285 Chestnut in 1872. She lived on Harmony between Chestnut and Coliseum in 1874. She lived on 9th between Chestnut and Coliseum in 1877. She died of ulceration of the intestines at that address September 21, 1878, aged 57 years.

Child of William Fauquier and Anthem Hardwick is:

4 i. Restora Mealer Fauquier, born 10 Dec 1843 in Donaldsonville, Ascension, LA; died 19 Aug 1901 in Jersey City, Hudson, NJ; married (1) Mary Ann Walker 23 Feb 1869 in New Orleans, LA; married (2) Julia Bleeker Mallaby 04 Jun 1890 in Nutley, Essex, NJ.

 

10. Joseph Burch Walker, born 02 Jan 1817 in Washington, DC; died 26 Feb 1897 in Mississippi City, now Gulfport, MS. He was the son of 20. Joseph Culbertson Walker and 21. Bartella Powell. He married 11. Rebecca Jane Ridley 26 Nov 1844 in Madison Co, MS.

11. Rebecca Jane Ridley, born 02 Feb 1827 in Williamson Co., TN; died 30 Apr 1902 in Ocean Springs, Harrison, MS. She was the daughter of 22. Robert Ridley and 23. Sarah Houston.

Notes for Joseph Burch Walker:

A document from Montgomery Co., TN (dated 05 Mar 1849) shows J. B. Walker of Madison Co., MS giving Power of Attorney to Wm. B. Walker of the town of Dover, Stuart Co., TN in order to purchase 600 acres. This land was the same property where his father, Joseph Walker, was residing at the time of his death.

He was a prominent Methodist minister, and he wrote his autobiography which has been typed and is available covering the early years of his life through 1863. He was a "Circuit rider" and "itinerant" preacher, as was his brother, William Brent Walker. He served in Carondolet St. and other New Orleans churches, and received a Doctorate of Divinity.

Buried Ocean Springs, Harrison, MS.

The following is from the New Orleans Daily Picayune's front page obituary on February 17, 1897:

"A Venerable Leader of the Southern Methodist Church Passes Away After a Life of Four Score Years, During Which Time He Did Much Good for Mankind, And Modestly Bore Many Honors Bestowed by Those Who Knew Well His Worth.

News came to the city yesterday of the death in Mississippi City of Dr. Joseph Burch Walker, one of the best known and most popular Methodist divines of the south.

It is possible that the death of no one would be freighted with more regret and tender, loving recollections than that of this reverend leader, who has devoted his long, earnest life to living and preaching righteousness.

It is now more than a year that he has been compelled to give up active work in the pulpit by direction of his physician, Dr. E. D. Beach, of this city, but during that time his restless mind and energy could not be imprisoned, and his pen continued to labor after his oratory had been enjoined, and even this last mentioned luxury was on the point of being cut off by his friend and physician, when the news that the patient had gone 'where, according to man's best belief, eternity stretches its measureless peace and contentment to such beautiful lives as that of this eminent divine.

The doctor's death must have been somewhat sudden according to Dr. Beach. It was only yesterday that he received a letter from the family in Mississippi City saying that he was doing well. Said Dr. Beach last night: "It was simply the wearing out of the physical frame, which could no longer support the enormous activity of the mine. I enjoined my beloved friend something over a year ago from preaching, because he could no longer stand it. He had grown to old to endure the strain. But, as he himself said, the severest punishment that could be inflicted upon him was to keep him idle and inactive, and of late he has been writing considerably and contributing frequently to the Christian Advocate of this city. I had written him only a few days ago that he should give up this exertion and devote himself to rest.

Dr. Joseph Burch Walker was born in the city of Washington, D.C. Jan. 2, 1817. It is thus seen that he was in his 80th year. His father was a native of Pennsylvania, and his mother was Miss. Bertella Powell, a native of Virginia. The two families combined English, Scotch, Welsh and Irish blood.

Owing to his father's affairs, Dr. Walker's boyhood was divided between several different homes in several different states, and up to the time he had attained his 14th year he was never long in one locality. He was consequently sent to various schools, from his 4th to his 18th year.

The doctor had attained the age of 9, according to his own statement, before he learned to read, and he regarded it as a fortunate matter, for to it he attributed the fact that he had never suffered headache or delirium in fever. From that time, however, the doctor made up for lost time, for he was an indomitable reader, and books were one of the great delights of his active life. He used to regard a good book as a benediction.

The doctor was but 19 years of age when he was licensed to preach. That was Oct. 4, 1836. At that time he became a member of the Tennessee annual conference of the Methodist church. In that conference he continued ten years, filling two circuits and eight stations successively.

On Nov. 26, 1844, he married Miss R. J. Ridley of Madison county, Miss., and in December of 1846 he was transferred to the Louisiana conference and stationed at the McGee church, then at the corner of Poydras and Carondelet streets, which was burned at the same time as the destruction of the first St. Charles Hotel, igniting from sparks sent out by the shingles of that building. In those primitive days, there were no steam engines and fires were exterminated with hand engines. The telephone exchange to-day stands where the church then stood, and with the insurance of the destroyed house of God, pledged out with other funds, the later Carondelet Street Methodist church was built. The doctor occupied the McGee church on his first reaching this city, and among the first friends he formed here was Dr. Beach, who was his physician all through life. It was in that church that the doctor preached his first New Orleans sermon, and it was that church congregation which first learned to love the man for his munificent endowment of noble qualities. At the end of four years the doctor was transferred to the Felicity street church for two years, and was then made the presiding elder of the New Orleans district.

A year later he was again stationed at the Carondelet Street church, at which post he continued until the federal forces captured New Orleans. He and Dr. Palmer left the Crescent city together to avoid falling into the hands of Ben Butler. The remainder of the was period he spent a refugee in Mississippi, the greater portion of the time supplying the pulpit in Port Gibson, though nominally the pastor to the Carondelet street church.

He returned to New Orleans in July, 1865, and preached in the Unitarian church, whose pulpit was at the time vacant. He preached in this church for a period of four months, when President Johnson compelled the northern Methodists to vacate and restore the churches belonging to the southern Methodists. Dr. Walker once again occupied the church in which he had begun his labors in the Crescent city.

He was repeatedly appointed to succeed himself in the Carondelet street church until 1871, when he was transferred to the Texas conference and stationed in Galveston as the pastor of St. John's church. He occupied this pulpit for four years, when he was brought back to the Louisiana conference and stationed at the Felicity street church for four years. For two of these years he was also presiding elder. He was then stationed at the same church for two more years, when, finding that the labor was becoming too onerous for his endurance, he asked to be relieved, and was again appointed presiding elder. This position he had held only a year, however, when he was stationed at the St. Catles street church. Twelve months later he was again on the district work, in which he continued for four years. He later filled the Louisiana avenue church pulpit for four years, and was transferred to the Moreau Street Methodist church, where he labored four years. He was then transferred in Algiers, when his career in the pulpit was brought to a close December a year ago by the encroaching infirmities of age and the order of his physician.

Dr. Walker was one of the oldest and most eminent ministers of the church. In his solid, earnest, untiring career, he had been entrusted with the most important charges of the church and had been uniformly popular, beloved and successful. he commanded the devoted admiration of all with whom he was brought in contact. To the vast membership which has at one time or another been of his flock, to his innumerable friends, his name was a synonym of greatness of heart and loyalty to high purposes and aims. As a worker he was tireless, and his heart appeared to be filled with all the keen instinct which makes a man appreciative of and appreciated by his fellow-men. As a preacher he was a true follower of the gentle Philosopher, bringing ever by word and act and precept the sunshine of love for fellow mortals. His lofty idealism adapted itself to all the conditions and circumstances of life, and made his own full of native splendor, unobtrusive, and so the grander.

As a pulpit orator, he was always forceful. His rhetoric seemed to find its deepest source of inspiration and felicity from his earnestness. he used to begin his sermons in slow, earnest speech, as if weighing his speech with his thought. As he progressed, and his subject warmed his thought, his earnestness increased until at times his eloquence became an impassioned prayer in its intensity.

Hundreds upon hundreds of people will to-day recall the many things in the past which make Dr. Walker at once one of their brightest and sweetest memories, as friend, counsellor, beloved associate.

His wife survives him, and one of the pleasant recollections of the Carolndelet street flock is the golden jubilee tendered their beloved pastor and his wife on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of his wedding, on Nov. 26, 1891. Of the three children born to this union, a son and a daughter survive. one is Wm. W. Walker, of Brandon, Miss., one of the most gifted and graceful writers of English in the south, for years on the staff of the Picayune, in this city, and now a constant contributor to the Sunday Picayune. The oldest daughter is dead. She married a Mr. Fauquier, and to this union three children were born. The other daughter (Sally B) married M. A. McClaugherty of Pecan Grove dairy, near Mississippi City.

A great number of New Orleans friends will leave to-day for Mississippi City, where the remains will be taken on board the train, and go thence to Ocean Springs, where the interment will be. Among those will be Bishop Keener, who will officiate at the last sad rites, Dr. E. D. Beach, Mrs. W. W. Carre, Mrs. B. H. Moss and J. C. McAllister."

Note: Mrs. Carre purchased the beautiful pink marble marker which adorns the grave.

14. <Unknown> Habrecht He was the son of 28. <Unknown> Haybrecht. He married 15. Charlotte <Unknown>.

15. Charlotte <Unknown>

Notes for <Unknown> Habrecht:

The surname may be Habrecht, a famous German name which occurs in Ohio and Wisconsin and other midwestern states. In German, "having right." Another similar spelling is Haberecht

Census records indicate a Phil Habrecht was born 1852 and later resided as head-of-household in St. Louis, MO. His parents were born in Germany.

The IGI indicates other families in Prussia and Germany.

Note for future reference: Isaac Habrecht (°1544 Schaffhouse +1620 Strasbourg) Horloger de l'horloge astronomique de Strasbourg - Straßburg - a watchmaker and clockmaker. His son: German astronomer, mathematician, and physician. Isaac Habrecht II made globes of the skies, and named a constellation in the southern sky, "Rhombus" (a type of parallelogram). It was later re-named Reticulum. Isaac had a brother : frères Isaac et Josias Habrecht ; Gebrüder Isaac und Josias Habrecht aus Schaffhausen

An article about Shakespeare and Richard Field includes "Habrecht is an important figure in our ongoing discussion of international Rosicrucian cross-currents. A physician and mathematician, he died in 1633. Like the main author of the Rosicrucian manifestos, J.V. Andreae, he became vehemently anti-Rosicrucian, conducting attacks under the sobriquet of Hisiam sub Cruce Atheniensem. But his Eines Newen ungewohnlichen Sterns, oder Cometen… in 1618, one of a flood of works on the significance of comets, suggests to me that we should qualify our general impression of his attitude. The tract refers to the cometary observations of John Dee and Thomas Digges in 1572 and to the fall of the Earl of Somerset in the Overbury affair; it also includes three references to the Brotherhood of the Rosy Cross, including a comment on their interpretation of cometary phenomena of 1600 and 1604.8 The neutral tone of these suggests to me that Habrecht at the time of writing had not quite given up on the Rosicrucians. It was he who, in VIII Miraculum Artis, claimed that Robert Fludd was the model for the brother in the Fama who had cured a Duke of Norfolk of leprosy.

"On the 24th June 1623 Matthias Bernegger, a member of Andreae's Societas Christiana in 1620, who, like Habrecht, worked in Strasbourg, informed Zincgref that Habrecht had obtained the poems of Georg Rudolff Weckherlin.9 Weckherlin's diary of the 1630's suggests that he may have been a Rosicrucian. An Anglophile, he spent three consecutive years in England between 1607 and 1614, probably in the service of the Wurtemberg ambassador. In 1616 he again visited England, marrying an English bride; in 1624 he became an under-secretary of state at Whitehall. Even if Habrecht had never visited England, it is conceivable that Weckherlin may have acted as his intermediary."

Regarding Richard Field's 1617 book: "Isaac Habrecht lets on in his 1629 preface that he himself had contributed sections to the 1617 London version. ... Janua Linguarum Quadrilinguis. Or a Messe of Tongues, which his friend Matthew Lownes printed in 1617."

Several of the articles below were partially and faultily translated from German or French, but come close to the meaning:

Born 1544 - Swiss ( died 11 Nov 1620 Strasbourg. Son of Joachim. Married 1) 1566 Anna Rueger, 2) 1586 Margarete Beck. 1570 Habrecht and his brother Josias went to Strasbourg, where they participated in the creation of the Muenster cathedral : Tobias Stimmer provided for the artistic equipment, Konrad Dasypodius and David Wolkenstein supplied the computations and the brothers Habrecht the clock technology.

(the constellation) Reticulum was named by Abbé Nicolas Louis de Lacaille during his stay at the Cape of Good Hope between 1751 and 1752. It was originally named Rhombus by Isaak Habrecht of Strasbourg, but Lacaille renamed it the Reticle, which is the name for the crosshairs in a telescope's eyepiece. This constellation is also referred to as the Net.

Abraham II Habrecht was established by 1643, coming from Strasbourg, into Regensburg.

German craftsman Abraham III Habrecht (1654–1758) also made clocks.

Johachim Habrecht de Schaffhouse

Haabrecht / Habrecht: Famous German family. Many works from their workshops are today in museums. Joachim was the founder of the family. He lived in the first half of the 16th Century. They originated from Disssenhofen and became clock-makers. They were assigned 1545 to finish an unfinished clock at the time bell tower of Solothurn. Many of his 13 children became likewise famous clockmakers. Isaac I Haabrecht was born in as a seventh child of Joachim. He became intrigued by the Strassburger cathedral clock, which he finished with its brother Josias in the years 1573 to 1574. They reconditioned also the Ulmer city hall clock in 1581 and built the beautiful city hall clock in Heilbronn. He held the office of the Strassburger Muensteruhrmachers.

http://www.worldtempus.com/wt/1/1425/

The archaeologists are certain to regard the Tower of l'horloge of Soleure (Zeitglockenturm) as one of the oldest buildings of this city. Some say it was constructed in the 12th or 13th century. As for the automaton clock, it dates to 1452 and one text indicates that "the man which strikes the hours" all with the top of the tower, was then connected to the mechanism. Repaired in 1518 by von Steiner, it was replaced by another in 1545, was built by Lorenz Liechti of Winterthur and Johachim Habrecht de Schaffhouse. This last was the father of the famous clock and watch makers, Isaac and Josias Habrecht, which in collaboration with Dasypodius, built the first astronomical clock of the cathedral of Strasbourg.

Generation No. 5

16. George Fauquier, born 25 Aug 1765 in Poss. NJ; died 18 Oct 1832 in Union Co., KY. He was the son of 32. William Fauquier and 33. Rebekah May. He married 17. Flora Hayman 07 Feb 1788 in Currituck Co., NC.

17. Flora Hayman, born Bet. 1763 - 23 May 1765 in prob. Currituck Co., NC; died 05 Feb 1853. She was the daughter of 34. Joseph Hayman and 35. Flora Roberts.

Notes for George Fauquier:

In 1783 George Fauquier had a sawmill (tax list) in New Jersey.

This George Fauquier was likely in Norfolk, VA around 178?-97/1803 (Edenton Dist., Currituck Co., 1790 VA census) and in Kentucky from around 1797/1803-1832. Currituck Co., NC is the most northeast county in North Carolina, bordering Norfolk, VA. One indication that he moved to Fleming Co., KY in 1802; he sold land in Currituck in 1803 (or received cash then). He purchased 102 acres of farm land in 1804 in Fleming County located "on the waters of Johnstons fork of the Licking." Fleming Co. today is in northeastern Kentucy, with the County seat at Flemingsburg. Some of George and Flora's children were born there. George and Flora were later in Union Co., KY, where George died and Flora was mentioned on a later census. Union Co., KY is in northwestern Kentucky, on the Ohio river. The county seat is Morganfield.

George was listed as a blacksmith in some deed records:

This indenture made this 20th day of Nov. in the year of our Lord one-thousand-seven-hundred and ninety-seven between George Forker of the County of Currituck and state of North Carolina Black Smith of the one part and Mary Ballance widow of the other part witnesseth that the said George Forker for and in consideration of the sum of 200 Dollars to him in hand paid by the said Mary Ballance the receipt where of the George Forker and Flora Forker his wife doth hereby acknowledge and themselves there with to be fully satisfied contented and paid he the said George Forker hath bargained and so to conveyed and confirmed and by these presents doth grant Bargain and sell convey and confirm unto the said Mary Ballance her heirs and assigns forever one certain tract or parcel of land situated lying and being in County of Currituck near the great Swamp Bridge beginning at a Beach standing on the East side of the Road in a line which divides said land from that of John Towers thence with the said line on Easterly course to a piece of land called the Light swamp that formerly belonged to Thomas Hayman thence with said line to Henry Wilsons line thence with said line to the road leading from the Great Swamp Bridge to Virginia thence with Road the various courses there of to the first Station containing one hundred acres more or less together with all privileges and appertenences to the same belonging or in any wise appertaining to have and to hold the afsd premises with all the appertuntnances unto the said Mary Ballance her heirs and assigns forever and the said George Forker and Flora his wife will forever up in warrant and forever Defend the afore mentioned premises unto the said Mary Ballance her hris and assigns as their council Learned in the Law shall be reasonably devised or required in Witness of where the said George Forker and Flora his wife have here unto set their hands and seals the day and year above written sealed signed and delivered in the presence of

(witnesses Tho's Mason and James X Forker his mark)

One Matthias Forquier was in the index ; no more known.

"Lawyers and Lawmakers of Kentucky" compiled by H. Lewis, 1897 indicates that George Fauquier "was a son of Thomas Fauquier, who removed from Virginia to North Carolina in the eighteenth century." A Bible record and the will of his grandfather George May link George as a son of William Fauquier and Rebekah (unknown). The information about Virginia alludes to the Fauquier County which is named for (probable) cousin Francis Fauquier, but since the Governor's family and this family were living at the same time, any link will likely come a generation earlier in England. Naming conventions, including Thomas, William and Henry, however common, are consistent in the family which emigrated from England to Canada as well as in this family.

George witnessed a ded in Currituck styled "Nov. Term 1802" fo Uzziah McPharson to Edward Garrett (Deed Bk 3. p.331) and his name was listed "Geor Forker"

In a Currituck deed (book 3, pp. 441-2) Jesse Ives & wife, Marian (Cherry) Ives to Edward Garrett: " ... eastward along John Powers line thence running a north easterly course to George Forkers line thence along the sd. Forkers line northwesterly to Samuel Powers line thence ..."

19. Nancy Mealer, born Bef. 1780 in Poss. VA; died Aft. 1840.

Notes for James Hardwick:

Thanks to: Twylla Teer, for the first four paragraphs below:

"JAMES HARDWICK sold part of his land in Chester Co., SC in 1804. Deed Book R, page 209, signed 4 April 1804 and recorded in 1816: JAMES HARDWICK and dower by NANCY his wife of Chester. A land deed to: Cuthbert Price of Chester $__?__ 146 Ac. bounding John Pratt, Joseph Timms, dec'd, lands of Joseph Price John Hopkins, HAZEL PETRIE.

"By 1810 JAMES HARDWICK is in Warren County, Tennessee. Note this deed has no dower, and it was customary to have the dower sign.

"Deed Book P page 2O, signed 25 August 1810. JAMES HARDWICK and no dower of Warren Co., Tenn. ELI CORNWELL of Chester Co., S. C. ... $160 ...144 Ac. on Sandy River. Bounding lands now belonging to Joseph Timms which formerly belonged to HAZEL PETREE and the lands of JOHN PRATT Esq.

Edward Haulsey (x)

Hazel Hardwick

"With the signing of this deed JAMES HARDWICK disappears from the Chester records. Further research in Warren Co., Tenn. records might uncover data concerning him, and might also uncover the answer as to whether HAZEL HARDWICK, Sr. and MARY his wife died here in Chester and are buried here or whether they accompanied JAMES to Tennessee. It must be remembered that the older HAZEL was at least 75 years old in 1804-18O5, which for that time was a very advanced age. On the other hand, those who survived to that age were usually very hardy and rugged in health, and it could be that HAZEL Sr. survived to make the trip. Those were adventurous days and the pioneers who settled the new lands were possessed of courageous spirits."

James resided in Warren Co., TN, probably Hickman Co., TN, and Franklin Co., AL (where he is thought to have died). He was in Morgan Co., IL for the 1830 census, as were Liberty and Rice Hardwick and George Hardwick and Willis Hardwick. Rice may be Restorer. Willis may be old enough to be the father of some of these other Hardwicks. One Rice Hardwick was in Green Co., AR by 1834 (tax list) and 1840 (census).

Descendants of Roney Hardwick of Franklin Co., AL often use the first name of "Energy" including Energy Vinson (4 or more times).

Amity Hardwick is shown here as a presumed child, though many researchers list her one generation before (and as the mother-in-law of Roney Hardwick instead of the sister). A descendant of Nancy Hardwick (Bourland) is named Amity.

Restora Hardwick or Restorer Hardwick signed James' and Nancy's daughter Anthem Marie Hardwick's marriage certificate as a witness. Was he a brother, uncle, grandfather? Robert "Restore" Vinson is a grandson of this man. Restora Fauquier is a grandson of this man. William Restoria Hardwick is a descendant of Liberty Hardwick. I expect to find Restora Mealer as the name of a close relative of Nancy Mealer, and a son to be Restora Hardwick.

I believe Liberty P. Hardwick, who was b 1795 in Camden Dist., SC to be a child of this marriage. That family named a son Energy, and the family of Roney has a descendant named Liberty. According to Dr. Milton Warren Hardwick, MD of Angleton, Texas, the family of Hazel Hardwick, Jr. is the presumed father, who also named a son Energy. Hazel's brother, this James, is not shown with a spouse or descendants in his book. Liberty Hardwick married Loucinda Vincent or Lucinda Vinson, and one record said Franklin Co., AL - the Vinson name is extremely common in Franklin Co., AL where many descendants resided for decades, including the unusual spelling of Loucinda.

Land Records - 1818, Nw 1/4 Section 21, Franklin Co., AL (also resided Warren Co., TN); Abner Vinson received Franklin Co., AL land the same year.

Land Record: 1820 St. Clair Co., AL (definitely a different James Hardwick)

Another James Hardwick was in Warren Co., NC in 1789, when he sold a Negro slave to John Shearin. One James Mealer was also a creditor of James Egerton of Warren Co., NC in 1794. It is not obvious if these relate closely to this immediate family. That particular James Mealer married Nancy Harris and had a daughter, Nancy Mealer, who married Burwell Harris and died in Warren County, NC. That James Mealer also signed the petition to create Warren Co. from Bute in 1779.

http://www.rootsweb.com/~ncwarren/misc/petition.htm

Later info: That James Hardwick appears to be the son of an Aaron Hardwick of Westmoreland Co.; he likely had a brother named Aaron and male descendants of that line were later in Horry Co., SC.

Batte Cocke Lacy was residing in Rockingham County, NC 23 May 1787 when he deeded 400 acres in Halifax County, VA to one James Hardwick and 300 acres to George Wood.

Notes for Nancy Mealer:

or Nancy Milar or Nancy Miller.

The family of Mealer was in Hickman Co., TN, where one daughter said she was born, long after 1820, according to cemetery records. A Miller family, immigrated from Germany, was also in the county near the time of the first settlers.

Nicholas Mealer was head-of-household in 1785 in Halifax Co., VA as was a James Hardwick. Several Mealer descendants were later found in Mecklenburg Co., VA. Nicholas's father, also Nicholas Mealer, died in 1762, and had a brother, William Mealer, and first cousins Robert Mealer and Phillip Mealer. I think Robert may be the elusive ancestor. "Meeler and other Patronymics" by John W. Meeler, 1993 contains a lot of info on this family.

(Was Restore Mealer a son of one of these men? Surely one was a revolutionary veteran to have descendants named Liberty, Amity, Anthem, Restorer).

Could she have Vinson ancestry? Ronea / Roney / Rhoney may be a Vinson name.

Could she be of the Pennsylvania Melear family, which also included a Hardwick marriage?

Notes for Liberty P. Hardwick:

The book "Roots Branches Leaves" by Milton Warren Hardwick, MD indicates that strong circumstantial evidence places Liberty P. Hardwick as the son of Hazel Hardwick and his cousin, Margaret Hardwick, who is said to descend from the Hardwick line including Henrietta Garland.

A child named Energy Hardwick appears in the family of Liberty, and of his presumed father or uncle Hazel Hardwick. The name of Energy also follows in descendants of the Franklin Co., MS family which also includes the unusual names of Amity Hardwick and Restorer Hardwick or Restoria Hardwick or Restore Hardwick and Anthem Hardwick. In the other family, Anthem is used twice, Restorer twice, and Energy at least four times.

Liberty P. Hardwick resided in Morgan Co., IL for the 1830 census. In 1840 he was in Gibson Co., TN and in 1850 was in Tishomingo Co., MS. He married his second wife in Corinth, MS.

(note: could this be the uncle, or Energy Hardwick Vinson?)

Birthdates of most children: From 1850 census.

Notes for Loucinda Vinson:

or Lucinda Vinson

Vinson, derived from Vincent, is a common name in Franklin Co., AL, and Loucinda is a common first name in the county. Other Hardwick descendants continue to live in Franklin Co., AL in 1999. She may be a daughter or granddaughter of Abner Vinson, who received land in 1818 in Franklin Co., AL as did James Hardwick. Her birthdate is much later than presumed siblings, so not too likely to be a full-sister of Littleberry Vinson.

ii. Rhoney Hardwick, born Abt. 1801 in poss. Camden Dist., SC; died 17 Sep 1869 in Franklin Co., AL; married Edwin Sherrie Vinson 1820 in Franklin Co., AL; born 1802 in NC; died 20 Sep 1874 in Cedar Creek, Tuscambia, Franklin, AL.

Notes for Rhoney Hardwick:

or Roney Hardwick or Ronie Hardwick. The 1860 census indicates her birthplace as South Carolina. Her photo can be seen at http://hardwick.wetpaint.com/page/photo%27s

Descendants of Roney Hardwick provide by Joyce Ann Amberson Rogers - Flying60@aol.com April, 1999. Additional info from WFT 4-1286 an WFT 10-4282. Additional info from Billye Vinson Burnet of Stockton, CA.

One record says she died Sep 1867; the second marriage of her husband indicates she may have died earlier.

Notes for Edwin Sherrie Vinson:

or Edwin Sherrod Vinson. Thanks to WFT 8-1184 and WT 20-2350. His mother according to one record was Amity Hardwick. Others say she was his sister-in-law, which the dates support.

He likely lived in Giles Co., TN prior to Franklin Co., AL.

Coatney Vinson b 1847 and Richard Vinson b 1849 (both Franklin Co.) are said by some to be children of Rhoney Hardwick and Edwin Vinson.

Related to Energy Hardwick / Amity's father is shown in some records as Energy Hardwick. I have not found one in that generation.

Notes for Littleberry Vinson:

Littleberry Vinson or Berry Vinson is said by some to be the brother of Edwin Vinson, and by others is shown as his father. According to Mack Vinson (mackvin@aol.com) April 1999, they are thought to be the sons of Abner Vinson of Northampton Co., NC.

Marcus L. Vinson and James Vinson are said by some to be children of this family. James Vinson may have married the widow of Energy Vinson, Malinda Martin, in 29 Mar 1859 in Tishomingo Co., MS.

Loose Records - Williamson Co.

August 1831 - Robert Ridley on the 21st. day 1831 with force and arms assaulted, beat and bruised, did knock, pull ahd gouge out the eye of William (Martin). The bill for the curing of wounds, sickness, soreness, lameness and blindness caused by Ridley assessed by Martin was $400. William A. Baugh, a material witness, has left the county and believed to now resided in Giles County.

Deposition of Baugh: conversation took place between Baugh and Gen. Martin since the fight and Martin said he knew when his eye was put out in the fight, it was when Ridley was down and at the tie when Ridley threw up his hand and struck the sight of his eye with his finger and thumb nail. The fight took place during the late election. Ridley was excited by intoxication.

Deposition of WIlliam Martin - There was an exhibition of animals in the neighborhood where he resided on 21 May last and a meeting of the candidates. He had been engaged part of the day at labor, the little boys where he resided wanted to go and see the animals and he went with them that evening. When he got to Nolensville, he saw Ridley sitting in the house. He decided not to speak to him because he knew what sort of man he was. He heard a man named Sturdivant say "you had no business to have tore my bill," talking about betting on the election. A senator from Rutherford and Williamson County, Russwurm, one of the candidates came forward and handed Sturdivant a $5 bill to replace the one Ridley had torn, to make peace between them. Ridley said Jetton could not be elected. Ridley told Russwurm he could whip him or any of his friends. Ridley proceeded to turn and jump on Martin. Martin threw Ridley down and was on him when his eye was put out. Ridley was at Champ's Grocery in Nolensville. Both men were gouging at the others eyes.

Deposition of James C. Irvin. He said he heard a man named Waggoner, who had only one eye, ask Ridley why he had treated Martin so. Ridley replied that it had been an old grudge. Martin had treated George badly in the Seminolean War. Martin said not to part them until Ridley was whipped. Martin was a good deal the strongest man.

Deposition of Mr. Waggoner - He was Margin have Ridley down and gouging him. Ridley pushed Marstin's head back and had his finger in his eye. Blood was running out of Martin's eye and dripping on Ridley's chest. He saw the water fly out of Martin's eye. They were separated then. There was an old grudge between Martin and Ridley. No one "huzzed" for Ridley but Buck Whattamere.

Dep. Mr. Green - Ridley was drinking.

Dep. Dr. Webb - accident on Saturday evening, had no hope of Martin ever regaining sight in his eye.

Depo. John C. Neely - after the fight Martin asked him if he heard Ridley speaking ill of him. That was the reason that he called Ridley out. That he had heard Ridley say he would yet pay Gen. Martin for his conduct to his brother, George.

Dep. by Griggs and Alston - said both were gouging badly.

Depo. by Gray, Perkins and Buchanan who said Ridley was "gentlemanly drunk."

Dep. by Street - said Martin's friends were opposed to parting the fighters.

Depo. by Jacob Page - Martin was Ridley's officre in the Seminole War.

24. Daniel O'Farrell, born Abt. 1799 in Co. Cork, Ireland; died 01 Nov 1889 in New Orleans, Orleans, LA. He married 25. <Unknown> O'Connor.

25. <Unknown> O'Connor, born Aft. 1799 in Ireland.

Notes for Daniel O'Farrell:

Did Daniel have another son Michael Farrell who married Ella Davenport? She was his widow when she married Peter Laborde 19 Apr 1855.

A blight of the potato crops resulted in the Irish Famine of 1846 to 1850. One million Irish are thought to have died during this period. The combined forces of famine, disease and emigration depopulated the island; Ireland's population dropped from 8 million before the Famine to 5 million years after. This famine was the subject of much debate in the British parliament, including the creation of laws which dispossessed most small tenant farmers. In order to obtain relief (food) from the government, owners of 1/4 acre or more of property must give up their land. Also, when landlords could not collect the rates (taxes) from their tenants and forward them to the government, it became an economic decision to evict the tenants, and it was cheaper to put them on a ship to America than it was to pay the rates for the current year. Over 1.5 million of the Irish emigrated to America. Many went through New York or Boston, and others went to New Orleans and Quebec.

O'Farrell was an extremely common name in Ireland. It is only speculation at this time that the family of Daniel O'Farrell arrived in New Orleans due to the famine.

http://www.people.Virginia.EDU/~eas5e/Irish/Famine.html

The Cork Examiner and other newspapers covered the famine, and their articles are kept for posterity at:

The Oldest Farrell family ancestors were quite prominent in Irish history and are included in this file, with no proven link to this branch.

Generation No. 6

32. William Fauquier, born Bef. 1743; died Abt. 1788. He was the son of 64. <Unknown> Fauquier. He married 33. Rebekah May Abt. 25 Jul 1763 in Egg Harbor, Gloucester Co., NJ.

33. Rebekah May, born Bef. 1748. She was the daughter of 66. George May.

Notes for William Fauquier:

Could this be William Henry Fauquier, son of William Fauquier and Grace Warner of London? He was born about the right time, and a grandson shares the same name.

Or William Farquhar or William Forquer or William Faulkner (see Currituck Co., NC will of father-in-law George May dated 29 Sep 1784) George, William, Henry, James and John sons of William Farquhar by my daughter Rebecca.

Some land records and tax lists spell Faulkner and Fowler.

His marriage in Gloucester Co., NJ described as follows:

"FHLC 0888703; Vol. F:

#103; John FARQUOR (FORKER) and John DOE and Richard ROE (only "DOE" and "ROE" in the signatures - no given names or abbreviations)... [bound to]... William FRANKLIN, Governor... 500 pounds... 25 July 1763.

... William FARQUEKER / FORQUER... obtained license of marriage for himself and for Elizabeth MAY of the County of Gloster*... [w] Gab'l BLOND [consent] July 20, 1763, Eggharbour*... they are safe in granting of a liesanc for William FORKER to marry my daughter Rebecka MAY for it with my consent... [signed] George MAY" [Note: Gabriel Blond is noted in Burlington, NJ in 1739, where another Farquhar / Forker family is known to have resided during this period. Gabriel witnessed the will of Robert Sutton in Burlington, NJ in 1766]. Gabriel's name is often abbreviated Gab Blond and he witnessed a number of marriages in Burlington.

NJ tax lists:

One the same film that includes George May's land info: 1774 William Faulkner owned 5 acres improved (value 100 pounds), 5 uninmproved. In 1783 1 saw mill. William Sr., also 1783, Also 300 improved acres, 2 horses, 7 cattle 1 tavern. Son George had a sawmill in 1783.

A family Bible indicates this was the father of George Fauquier that married Flora Haymon, probably in Currituck Co., NC. WFT Disk 4, Tree 696 indicates that William May Fauquier, b 9 Jan 1773, was a child of William and Rebecca, and that William was the son of John Francis Fauquier from France & England. However, the death date of John Francis Fauquier (1728) likely pre-dates the birth date of this William. Interestingly, both men died in presumably the same year, though on different continents.

A Jane Forker or Jane Farquehr or Jane Forquer of Jessamine Co., KY married John McComsey. This family has not been linked to that Jane yet.

William was paid for being in the Service of Gideon Lamb during the Revolution, paid cash for repairing guns, listed as Wm. Focker. Recorded after 12 Nov 1775, he was paid one pound.

 

Notes for Rebekah May:

Also called Elizabeth May.

A family legend says she was "the daughter of an Irish sea captain in New Jersey" who in about 1780 moved with her husband William Fauquier to Currituck Co., NC.

Children of William Fauquier and Rebekah May are:

16 i. George Fauquier, born 25 Aug 1765 in Poss. NJ; died 18 Oct 1832 in Union Co., KY; married Flora Hayman 07 Feb 1788 in Currituck Co., NC.

ii. Henry Fauquier, born Abt. 1770 in Poss. NJ.

iii. John Fauquier, born Abt. 1770 in Poss. NJ.

iv. James F. Fauquher, born Abt. 28 Jul 1772 in Poss. NJ; died 11 Jun 1841 in Vanderburgh Co., IN; married (1) <Unknown> Bef. 1793 in prob. NC; married (2) Elizabeth Tully 15 Nov 1807 in Fleming Co., KY; born Bef. 1792 in Oyster Bay, NY; died 06 Sep 1868 in Vanderburgh Co., IN.

Notes for James F. Fauquher:

Or James F. Fauquher. Biography of his granddaughter's husband indicates that his wife was "Margaret" in 1814 when Lydia was born. Did Elizabeth Tully go by Margaret?

Resided in Fleming Co., KY until 1820, then moved to Vanderburg Co., IN., just across the river from Union Co., KY. James Fauquhar. hyard@sigecom.net Michael Hillyard descends from this line (May, 2002)

Did he have a daughter by an unknown first wife in NC (the daughter is named Mary), who married Joseph Elston 9 Mar 1809 in Henry Co., KY?

About 1820 and 1821 John and Morrison Fitzgerald, James F. Fauquhar, Nickolas Long, and the Judkins family, became a part of this settlement. (identified as a few cabins raised in a cluster in sections 5 and 6, German Twp.) They did not come together, but each family, some of them having been for some time in neighboring localities, drifted in singly, and took their places in the small and slowly increasing community. James Fauquhar was always upright, and was tolerably "well fixed" financially for his day. He was one of the very few old settlers who in this township bought his land from the government and passed it on to his children. William Farquhar, a son of James, the pioneer, and probably the oldest native born citizen of the township, though only sixty-four years of age, still resides on the land entered by his father. John Fauquhar, now a resident of Evansville, and Mrs. Lydia Saunders, of Union Township, are the only other surviving descendants of James Fauquhar.

It is not proven that she is linked to the right parents.

 

34. Joseph Hayman, born Bet. 1710 - 1720 in Pasquotank Prec., Albemarle, NC; died Bet. 27 Feb - Jul 1763 in Currituck Co., NC. He was the son of 68. Thomas Hayman and 69. Sarah <Unknown>. He married 35. Flora Roberts.

35. Flora Roberts, born Abt. 1725. She was the daughter of 70. Henry Roberts and 71. Blanche Creedle.

Notes for Joseph Hayman:

By 1727 Joseph Hayman moved on to Currituck County and sold his father's plantation to his uncle Henry Hayman.

"Joseph Hayman acquired property near the Virginia border as is evidenced in a 1763 deed from Truman Garrott to Joseph Hayman which describes ..."

Joseph Haman's will was dated 27 Feb 1763 and was recorded July 1763. Will Book 1, Currituck Co., NC. Wife: Flora, Sons: Thomas, John, Joseph. [No daughters mentioned] Exrs: Wife and James Burnham. Wit: Duke Cox, Freeman Garrett, David Booth. [Truman Garrett]

James Garrett, whose will was dated 22 Jan 1760 and died July 1761 was brother of Freeman Garrett. His will was witnessed by Joseph Haman, Robert Rowland and James Burnham. He left property to brother Freeman Garrett's son John, brother John Garrett's son James.

Flora Hayman is shown to be too young to be the daughter of Flora Roberts and Joseph Hayman, but may be the daughter of one of their listed sons (or could have been born earlier than the date listed in the Bible). Daniel Hayman is listed adjacent to George Forker (Fauquier) in 1790 and may be father or brother to Flora. Of course, Flora (Roberts) Hayman could have had a child a couple of years after the death of her husband. "Marriages, births and baptisms happend on 'the banks' when an itinerant minister visited."

Some of the Haymans salvaged ships that ran aground on the Banks.

" ... 10 acres "along Coxes line" (near the Virginia line) and the "dividing line between the afordesaid Joseph Haman and Truman Garret". He is also listed in the 1755 Currituck County Tax list as "Joseph Hamond". Joseph's wife was Flora Roberts of Norfolk County, Virginia. Her father, Henry Roberts' will dated November 24, 1749, includes "my son in law Joseph Hammond my Gun". The will was witnessed by "Jos: Hamon." At his death in February 1763, Joseph had three sons, Thomas, Joseph and John.

In the name of God Amen I Joseph Haman this twenty seventh Day of February one thousand seven hundred & sixty and three being sick & weak of Body but of sound & disposing mind and memory thanks be to a mighty God for it and Calling to rememberance the uncertain Estate of this transitory Life and that everyman must yield unto death when it shall please the almighty God to call him I therefore Commend my Soul unto the Hands of Almighty God that gave it and my body to be Buried in such Christian manner as my Executor shall think proper and touching and concerning What Earthly or worldly Estate it hath pleased the almighty God to Bless me with I give Bequeath as follows Viz.

All three sons received land from the will near the head of Moyock Creek in Currituck County, on the edge of the Great Dismal Swamp.

"Apparently, some members of the Joseph Hayman branch moved to Norfolk County, Virginia between 1810 and 1820. The 1820 census of the Borough of Norfolk includes a "Mrs Hayman" and one son, born between 1810 and 1820. There is also a Mrs. Hayman in the 1830 census and a Harvey Hayman in Norfolk in 1840. In the 1850's and 1860s, the only Hayman family in Norfolk was that of Rosetta Hayman, a widow, born in Virginia in 1790. She had at least one daughter, Christina Elizabeth Hayman, who married John Wood on 3 Jan 1850, and one son, John C. Hayman. John C. was born in Norfolk Co. in 1824, and married Elizabeth Ann McCauley or McCoy on 1 May 1849. She died young, and John remarried to Clorinda F. Peed before 1860..."

Notes for Flora Roberts:

Flora Hayman or Flora Haymon. Her husband listed in her father's will as Jospeh Hammond.

Children of Joseph Hayman and Flora Roberts are:

i. Thomas Hayman, born Bef. 1750; died Bet. 14 Mar - 10 Jul 1788 in Currituck Co., NC; married Isabell <Unknown>.

Notes for Thomas Hayman:

Thomas was the eldest son. He was quite prominent in the Moyock area. From 1782 through 1787 he participated in seven deeds involving hundres of acres along the North Carolina - Virginia border. Some of the boundary markers were the "Light Swamp", "Woof Pitt Bridge near the Great Swamp", and "Juniper Swamp on the Virginia Border." His assessment for the 1779 Currituck County tax list was 11/7/3 which indicates moderate to large property holdings. He served as a Justice in Currituck Court during two terms in 1778 and signed a petition for a road through the Great Dismal Swamp in the same year with his brother John and Gideon Lamb.

Thomas Hayman's will was dated 14 Mar 1788 and was recorded 10 Jul 1788. His executors were Maj. William Ferebee and John Simmons, Esq. His witnesses: Duke Cox, Joseph May, Edward Doughty, Sr.

I Thomas Hayman of the County of Currituck & State of North Carolina being weak in body but of perfect mind & memory make this my last will & testament First I desire to be buried in a decint & Christian like manner. My estate & effects I bequeath & dispose of in manner form following. First to my son Gideon Lamb Hayman I give & bequeath the land & plantation whereon I now live.

Thomas Hayman (Seal)

Wit: Duke Cox, Joseph May, Edward Doughty, Sr.

Joseph and Isabell Hayman lived next to his brother Thomas. "Joseph Hayman's corner" is mentioned in several deeds to Thomas Hayman. Joseph appears to be the only member of the entire North Carolina Hayman family to have served with the patriots during the Revolutionary War. In December 1778 he was listed as a Private in the 6th Regiment of the North Carolina Continental Line. In 1785 Joseph sold his property and moved to Norfolk County, Virginia. In August 1789 "Joseph Hayman & wife Esebell of County of Noroflk, Virginia" sold 60 acres near the Great Swamp Bridge to John Northern.

Notes for Isabell <Unknown>:

Was she Isabell Lamb? Probably the daughter of Gideon Lamb.

ii. John Hayman, born Abt. 1755; died Bet. 20 Dec 1791 - 1795 in Currituck Co., NC; married Elizabeth Bright.

iii. Joseph Hayman, Jr., born Abt. 1750 in Currituck Co., NC; died Bef. 1800; married Isabell <Unknown>.

Notes for Joseph Hayman, Jr.:

Am Rev. patriot; moved to Norfolk, VA.

Notes for Isabell <Unknown>:

Probably Isabell Powers, daughter of William Powers of Currituck Co. who mentioned a daughter named Isabell Haymen in his 1795 will.

17 iv. Flora Hayman, born Bet. 1763 - 23 May 1765 in prob. Currituck Co., NC; died 05 Feb 1853; married George Fauquier 07 Feb 1788 in Currituck Co., NC.

 

36. Hasel Hardwick, born Bef. 1727 in poss. Stafford Co., VA; died Aft. Feb 1801 in Chester Co., SC. He was the son of 72. Joseph Hardwick and 73. Ann <Unknown>. He married 37. Mary Northcut Bet. 18 Feb 1749/50 - 25 Dec 1750 in Stafford Co., VA.

37. Mary Northcut, born Abt. 1730 in Overwharton Par., Stafford, VA; died Aft. 06 Jun 1800 in Chester Co., SC.

Notes for Hasel Hardwick:

Also Hasel Hardidge or Hasel Hardige; commonly spelled or suggested as Haswell Hardwick or Hazel Hardwick or Hazewell Hardwick. He may have been born / baptized at Cople Par., Westmoreland, VA. Their identified children were Ann, William, and Elizabeth were born in Stafford Co., VA according to parish records. Hasel sold his inherited land in Sept 1748 to Gerrard Hutt (See below). He patented 407 acres in Frederick Co., VA in 1753 and sold it in 1763. He then moved to SC by 1769 and is reported to have died in Chester Co., SC. Some childrens' birth or baptism dates from "The Register of the Episcopal Church of Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co, VA", 1723-1758, compiled by Geo. Harrison Sanford, 1961 [Library of VA]. Thanks to APVID@aol.com Amelia Vidrick for this and the will extracts shown for the Hardwick family.

The remainder of the notes for Hasel were provided from one researcher and cites the work of others:

HASEL HARDWICK, SR. c. 1725 -1800 - by Amelia Vidrick [1999] APVID@aol.com

"Overwharton Parish in Stafford Co. was created in 1680 or earlier. Two-thirds of Stafford Co. VA, deed and will books prior to 1860 have been lost and records are limited for this county during this period.

"The first three children are found in The Register of the Episcopal Church of Overwharton Parish, Stafford Co, VA, 1723-1758. Portions of the Parish register are not extant and the listing is probably incomplete. Hasel, Jr, James, Mary, and Susannah are found in court records of South Carolina. [Report from Twylla Teer via Internet does not show Susannah in a court record.]

"Library of VA, Westmoreland Microfilm Reel #10, DEEDS & WILLS Liber S, 1747-1753, pg. 18-19:

A lengthy handwritten document dated 23 Sept. 1748: Hasel Hardwick of Stafford Co, VA, planter sold to Gerrard Hutt of Cople Parish, Westmoreland Co, for L15 current money, 35 Acres land lying in Cople Parish, being part of the land JOSEPH HARDWICK, FATHER of said Hasel, willed to him. The deed is signed as 'Hafel Hardwich'. [The 'f' is Old English and was used within the body of a word as 's' is today.] No wife signs. In 1749 Hasel Hardwick married Mary Northcutt.

"In January 1753, Hasel receives 407 acres by deed in Frederick Co, VA and in May 1763 he leases the same land to Andrew Beard and John Tate. In May 1764, said land is sold to these two men.

"In Oct. 1758, Hasel, who was in Capt. Calemus's Militia company, was fined 10sh by court martial in Frederick Co. because he was absent from one General Muster during the previous twelve months. The following Court records pertaining to Hasel Hardwick, Sr, indicate that he knew how to write, but his wife, Mary, did not as she made her mark [M] on various records.

"Hasel still held land in Virginia as late as 1771 and the assumption has been made that he did not go to South Carolina until after that date. If so, most of his children would have been born in Virginia. However, HASEL and MARY, his wife, seem to have gone to South Carolina before 1769, as the South Carolina Archives has a record of a land grant of 200 Ac. made to Hazel Hardwick on 12 October 1769. The land was situated in Craven County, which at that time was a Colonial County, but is now known as Chester County.

[A series of earlier deeds have since been abstracted: Did Hazel buy the land before he moved? Or did he sell after he moved?

"The Hardwicks definitely had migrated south by 1790 as that census for South Carolina lists 9 Hardwick families with various spellings. The families are: R. Hardick, Moses Hardrige, James Hardage, and Hazle Hardrich in Camden District; Thomas Hardick and Wm. Harwick, 96th District. In Georgetown District, Prince George Parish, we find John Hardwick, Aaron Hardwick, and Samuel Hardwick.

"Since families tended to cluster together, we might think that Hazel, James, Moses, and R. Hardick, [all in Chester County, Camden Dist.] had a kinship to each other. A Robert Haswell is also living in Camden District and a Thomas Hasell in Georgetown District in 1790. [I might note here that there were, also, 6 Elledge families in the 96th District. We will find the Elledge and Hardwick families intermarried in later years.

"The following files were sent from Twylla Teer via Donna Autrey by Internet.

"A number of land grants were made to HASEL HARDWICK after the Revolution, as anyone could apply for land that was vacant if he paid for the surveying expense. HASEL HARDWICK was a large landowner for this area. The 1790 Census of Chester Co. SC lists HASEL HARDWICK living between Hezekiah West and Stephen Siddle. HASEL HARDWICK at that time had 3 males over 16 and 5 females listed in his household.

"The lands of HAZEL PETREE, it will be noted, are all on Sandy River. "SOUTH CAROLINA BAPTIST 1690-1910" by Leah Townsend states there was once a flourishing Baptist Church situated on Sandy River. It is possible that this was the church to which the HARDWICKS belonged and that they were buried in the churchyard there or in a family burying ground which has not been located. This area now largely belongs to the pulpwood companies and is overgrown with pines. " Amelia Vidrick, 1999.

http://www.northcuttfamily.com/pjanotes.htm

P. J. Achramiwicz suggests the following is a POSSIBLE lineage for Mary, based on land and immigration records.

her father may have been:

John Northcutt or John Norcutt b c 1669 m Sara <Unknown> - the comment "Brent lease" is used.

whose father may have been:

Thomas Northcutt or Thomas Norcutt and Ann Etheridge, daughter of Thomas Etheridge and Christian Yates (or Christina Yates) of Norfolk Co., VA. The most recent Thomas Norcutt listed was probably born bef 1650 in Norfolk Co., VA and died 26 Feb 1709/10 (certainly a will date or probate date) in Norfolk Co., VA.

Quit Rents of Norfolk Co. Virginia, in 1704 list four Thomas Etherdge(s), three Edward(s), Charles, Wm, Wm Jun, and Marmaduke Etherdge.

Children of Hasel Hardwick and Mary Northcut are:

i. Ann Hardwick, born 04 Jan 1751/52 in Overwharton Par., Stafford, VA; married Samuel Walker Abt. 1766 in VA; born Abt. 1738; died Bef. 11 Jul 1807 in Granville Co., NC.

Notes for Ann Hardwick:

Was she known as Nancy Hardwick Taylor in Garland Hardwick's will?

Notes for Samuel Walker:

Not certain that the same Samuel Walker that married Ann Hardwick also married Elizabeth (?) McCoy.

ii. William L. Hardwick, born 05 Sep 1753 in Overwharton Par., Stafford, VA; died 08 Aug 1784 in Overwharton Par., Stafford, VA.

Notes for William L. Hardwick:

from the Leonardo Andrea Files, South Caroliniana Library, University of SC.

Hardwick File,p.7

Andrea obtains this info from Revolutionary file AA-3317,SC State Archives:

"William Hardwick...Lt and Captain.

He served 275 days and was dead before 12 August 1784.

His service was certified by Capt Patrick McGriff and Col. Edward Lacey...

On 12 Aug 1784 his father Hasel or Hazel Hardwick places a claim for money owed to his son now deceased. The indent was issued 23 Aug.1785 to Hassel Hardwick administrator of estate.

This was likely a young man for note on p.2 in 1769 when Hazel Hardwick took his land grant that William was not yet 16. The file also has the surname spelled Hardige."

Andrea notes elsewhere that William died without issue because Hasel was administrator of estate and the indent was issued to him, not a widow or children.

iii. Elizabeth Hardwick, born 08 Sep 1755 in Overwharton Par., Stafford, VA; died Bef. 1800 in Chester Co., SC.

iv. Mary Hardwick, born Bet. 1756 - 1758 in Overwharton Par., Stafford, VA; died Aft. 1800 in Chester Co., SC.

v. Susannah Hardwick, born Bet. 1762 - 1764 in Prince George Co., VA; died Bet. 1790 - 1800 in Chester Co., SC; married Peter Petrie Abt. 1783 in Chester Dist., SC; born Bet. 1754 - 1760 in Orkney Isles, Scotland; died 26 Oct 1841 in Todd Co., KY.

The reported birthdates for their children are too close together.

S/ Peter Petree

Wit: Hazel Hardwick, James Stewart proved 18 Jan. 1786

The Petree family name was most often spelled without the "ie" that was reported on immigrant Peter's records.

vi. Garland Hardwick, born Aft. 1762.

vii. Jemima Hardwick, born Abt. 1765; married John Colvin; born Abt. 1765.

Notes for Jemima Hardwick:

Jemima is shown as a child due to circumstantial evidence; the Colvin family married other descendants of Hasel Hardwick and families ended up in Greene Co., AL. She may not even be a Hardwick, and no records have been found to link her to her presumed father.

viii. Mina Hardwick, born Abt. 1765; married James Stuart; born Bef. 1765 in Chester Co., SC.

Notes for Mina Hardwick:

It is not obvious that Mina was a Hardwick. She could be mis-placed.

43. Sarah Brent, born 22 Jan 1774 in VA. She was the daughter of 86. George Brent and 87. Johanna Wale.

Notes for Capt. William Powell:

One report says that William Powell IV married Elizabeth Kirkpatrick. It is not certain that this is the same man that married Sarah Brent.

Resided Hamshire Co., Va near Romney.

Another Powell family was of Hampshire Co., VA; James Leith Powell m Mary Buzzard 15 May 1824 Hampshire Co., VA. One of his sons was named Alfred H. Powell. Separately, Leven Powell who married Sarah Harrison had a son Alfred Harrison Powell.

The autobiography of Rev. Joseph Burch Walker includes this recollection:

"I also visited my grandfather Capt. William Powell in Hampshire Co. near Romney. These journeys took me across several rivers and over mountains. I thought in my childish mind, because I had been told grandfather lived in the country, that all "the country" was grandfathers. When leaving the City for the first time I was wonderfully struck with the largeness of the "lots," which I called the broad fields, and the great length and crookedness of the "streets" at grandfathers’, as I called the roads. Meeting some females in the rough mountain country who were shoeless in the summer weather, never having seen the like before, I exclaimed, "Oh mother, do the ladies go bare footed at grandfather’s?" My grandfather Powell was fond of singing and I learned from him several tunes, and after a lapse of sixty-five years remember and sing them still. My Grandfather came to his death from severe injuries from the fall of a tree. Two or three days terminated his sufferings. He died singing the hymn, "Oh for a closer walk with God."

Notes for Sarah Brent:

In 1818, resided near Leesburg, VA. These children are from the Bible of Allen Smith Wrenn, which originally belonged to Thomas Brent of Middletown, OH.

A daughter Amey Currell has the same name of a family from Lancaster Co. and Loudoun Co. and may bear more research for a maternal surname. Isaac Currell b c 1739.

From "Descendants of Hugh Brent" by Chester Horton Brent:

"Sarah Brent evidently married a son or grandson of Eleanor Peyton and William Powell, Jr. William Powell, Jr. names a daugter and granddaughter "Sarah Powell" in his well, 1787.

45. Annie Williams, born 18 Dec 1766; died 30 May 1825 in Williamson Co., TN. She was the daughter of 90. <Unknown> Williams.

Notes for Beverly Ridley:

"In September, 1787, Captains Rains and Shannon were ordered to range the country in the direction of Duck and Elk rivers. Captain Shannon's company, being in advance, passed near a recently abandoned Indian camp without discovering it; but when Captain Rains came up he saw a large number of buzzards flying around, and from trained habits of observation he surmised that they must have been attracted by some carcass left by an Indian hunting party. He encamped near by and found, as he had suspected, the remains of a deer recently killed. Next morning he struck the Indians' trail, and before night one of the spies discovered and fired upon one of the warriors. The scouts dashed forward at the report of the gun. Rains saw and pursued an Indian who was running up a ridge. When he got in range he ordered him to stop. The Indian turned for an instant, then renewed his flight, when Rains fired, wounding him in the hand. Reuben Parks and Beverly Ridley now joined in the chase. The Indian fired at Ridley, but the ball passed over his head; they then closed in on him, knocked him down, and Ridley finally dispatched him with his knife. John Rains, Jr., and Robert Evans outran and captured an Indian boy about nineteen years of age, who was, a year or two later, released and permitted to return to his nation."

A silversmith of Nashville, Tenn.

"John Elliston, a native of Kentucky, came to Tennessee when a young man and with his uncle opened the first silversmith store in Nashville. The Ellistons were noted as business men in early Tennessee. Grandfather Elliston manufactured probably the greater part of the jewelry which was sold from his store, and much of the tableware which was used by early families in Nashville and vicinity came from his establishment, and he also made many of the old tall clocks which stood in the corners of some of the old homes."

vi. George Washington Ridley, born 07 Jul 1797 in Nashville, Davidson, TN; died 03 Oct 1873 in Franklin, Williamson, TN.

Notes for George Washington Ridley:

"Married and had issue several children ... He was a specimen of rare genius; a native type of indomitable self-will; a man of great boldness and a stranger to all earthly fear. He enlisted under Capt. Tapley B. Andrews and Col. Thomas Williamson in the Second Tennessee Mounted Gun-men, commanded by Gen. Andrew Jackson, against the Seminole Indians. At the battle of Missisook, east Florida, April 1, 1818, he was wounded five times at one firing ; once on the foot, once on the upper lip, and three times in the lower part of the abdomen, the bullets passing directly through him. He was mustered out as wounded, for a furlough, June 30, 1818, placed on board a vessel at Fort S. Mark, conveyed to New Orleans, and thence up the Cumberland River to Nashville. One of his legs was contracted an inch and a half in consequence of his wounds; and he was ever afterwards subject to fits, so that he could only perform the lighter kinds of labor. In the presidential campaign between Andrew Jackson and John Q. Adams in 1824-5, he was warmly and actively in favor of the former; and after the election of Mr. Adams by the House of Representatives, his disappointment was so great that he burned his pension certificate, with a decided refusal to draw his annuity under the administration of President Adams; but after the election of General Jackson in 1828-9, he obtained a new certificate and had his pension continued. He was a corporal in the expedition of 1818. His residence in 1866 was in Franklin, Williamson County, Tenn. During the late Rebellion he remained loyal to the Union. He died Oct. 3, 1873, leaving descendants who resemble him."

"David and Hannah (Reagan) Houston, natives of Ireland, came to Lauderdale County in 1813 and settled on their plantation about 13 miles west of Florence on the Waterloo Road, near Gravelly Springs, and adjoining the old Natchez Trace. They had lived in Tennessee until they moved here with their thirteen children. Their home was a large, three-story brick structure built along the typical ante-bellum lines. A huge water tank, located on the roof, caught rain water and furnished the household with running water. This home burned sometime before 1900.

"The Houston cemetery, some signs of the old brick foundations of the mansion, and remains of the once elegant garden house are the only signs today of the old home, the boyhood home of the onetime Governor and U.S. Senator, George S. Houston, one of the thirteen children.

"The Houston land supposedly exended from Gravelly Springs to the Tennessee River where they had a boat landing."

Notes for Hannah Pugh Reagan:

Welsh, Quaker. " ... a connection of the Pugh family of Ohio." May have been born in Frederick Co., VA. "She was a remarkable woman for her day and the advantages which she enjoyed."

Her reported birthdate is after the marriage of her presumed mother to Thomas Reagan. However, her mother is also reported to have had a daughter, Hannah Reagan, in 1795, resulting in bewilderment for those who rarely hear of two surviving children with the same Christian name. The stories recounting that her father was Reason Reagan may be in error, but it seems likely that she is of the same Pugh and Reagan families that were in Newberry Co., SC at the same time, so the identity of her grandparents is probably not in dispute.

Children of David Houston and Hannah Reagan are:

i. Jane Houston, born Abt. 1797; died Abt. 1873; married Gen. Phillip Jacob Irion 14 Aug 1838 in Lauderdale Co., AL; born 25 Nov 1796 in NC; died 25 Mar 1879 in Gravelly Springs, Lauderdale, AL.

Notes for Dr. John Pugh Houston:

"Dr. Houston graduated from the College of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia which is the oldest medical school in the United States and at that time was the most out-standing.

Russell Houston was educated in Georgetown College, Kentucky, studied law under the direction of James Clark, in Nashville, Tennessee, and entered on the practice in 1835, at Columbia, Tennessee. He took an active part in the Indian war in Florida, and after returning therefrom in 1847, settled in Nashville, where he was associated in the active practice with Colonel Cahal, Judge A. O. P. Nicholson, Judge Nathaniel Baxter and Neil S. Brown, all distinguished members of that bar. He was without political ambition and filled but one office, that of representative in the Tennessee legislature in 1851-2

In the establishment of the law department as a separate branch of the railroad service he was tendered and accepted the position of chief counsel, which he held until his death.

Mr. Houston was singularly vigorous in mind and body, was a dose observer of men and possessed a retentive memory and a genial temperament. He was a Unionist throughout the war and a stanch friend of Andrew Johnson in the administration of the affairs of his native state in the re-adjustment during the war. By the appointment of Mr. Johnson while governor of Tennessee, Mr. Houston filled a place on the bench of the supreme court d that state for a time, helping to bring order out of chaos. He refused to accept any salary for the time he served, his labors being freely given for the good of the commonwealth He held a commanding position at the bar and had the respect and confidence of the people.

"Memorial History of Louisville", pp. 356-358:

RUSSELL HOUSTON, eminent as a member of the Kentucky bar for more than twenty-five years, and for twenty-five years before that one of the leading members of the bar of Tennessee, was born in Williamson County, Tennessee January 20, 1810 and died in Louisville, full of years and honors October 1, 1895. His father, David Houston-who was a son of John Houston of South Carolina as a planter, and married Hannah Reagan, of that State, in 1795. Shortly after his marriage he moved to Tennessee, where he resided until the subject of this sketch was eight years of age at which time having purchased a large tract of land in Alabama, he moved his family, and settled in that State. As soon as they were settled in their new home, a teacher was engaged and his sons were there prepared for college. Russell Houston first attended college at Georgetown, Kentucky, but subsequently entered the University of Nashville, from which he graduated.

He studied law with Mr. James Clark, a lawyer of high standing at the Nashville bar, and began the practice of his profession in 1835 at Columbia, Tennessee. Among his first friends and clients in his new home was ex-President James K. Polk, whose friendship and kindness to him on the threshold of his professional career was a recollection that he ever delighted to recall. The Florida Indian War breaking out shortly after he commenced the practice of his profession, he was one of the first volunteers from his State, enlisting in Colonel Cahal's regiment Colonel Cahal was so impressed by young Houston's character and mind during the months passed together in Florida that at the close of the war he tendered him a partnership, which was accepted.

In 1844 he married Grizelda Polk, daughter of Dr. William J. Polk, who was a brother of Bishop Leonidas Polk, and in 1847 he moved to Nashville, where his reputation had preceded him. He soon took high rank at the bar, which at the time numbered among its members some of the ablest lawyers of the country. Besides Colonel Cahal, he had associated with him as partner in his practice in Tennessee Judge A. O. P. Nicholson, of Columbia, Governor Neil S. Brown and Judge Nathaniel Baxter, of Nashville, all of whom were lawyers of distinguished abilities. Judge Houston was wholly without political ambition and never offered for office but once. He took great interest in the development of his State, and to promote its development by assisting in securing liberal legislation, he was induced to offer for the Legislature, to which he was elected, serving in the sessions of 1851 and 1852. When the Louisville & Nashville Railroad was projected, he look an active interest in it, and contributed much toward achieving its successful consummation, taking a leading part in obtaining such legislation in Tennessee as was necessary to enable the Kentucky corporation to extend the line of its road into Nashville. He was one of the first directors of the company in the State of Tennessee, and was continuously connected with the corporation in different capacities from that time to the day of his death.

In 1864 Judge Houston moved to the city of Louisville, and at the earnest solicitation of the Hon. James Guthrie--who was president of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad-accepted the vice-presidency of the company, which he held until Mr. Guthrie's death, whom he succeeded as president, filling out the former's term. Soon after this, the law department of the company was established, and Judge Houston was tendered and accepted the position of chief counsel, which he held continuously to the day of his death.

In politics, Judge Houston affiliated with the Whig party as long as that party was in existence, and after the war with the Democratic party. When the dominant political issue became union or disunion he took a firm stand for the Union, a strong love and pride of country being one of his striking characteristics. His commanding position at the bar and his high character as a man gave him weight and influence with the military authorities in Nashville, which he exerted in behalf of his Southern friends, saving many from hardships and trials they would otherwise have been subjected to. When the Supreme Court of Tennessee was reorganized under the administration of Governor Andrew Johnson, he appointed Mr. Houston to a position on that bench, which the latter accepted at the urgent request of the governor consenting to serve only long enough to get the judicial machinery into satisfactory operation. When he had accomplished this he resigned the office and refused to accept any salary for his services. Johnson had the highest opinion of his ability as a lawyer and jurist, and after the former became President, he again manifested his high appreciation of Judge Houston by declaring it to be his purpose to tender him a position in the Supreme Court of the United States, should a vacancy on that bench occur during his administration.

Vigorous physically and mentally far beyond the age at which most men succumb to the weight of years, he was a strikingly interesting man during the latter years of his life. Acute in his observations, rich in experiences and reminiscences, he was singularly attractive to the younger men of his profession, who entertained for him almost a filial regard.

The esteem in which he was held by his fellow citizens was evidenced at the time of his death by the feeling tributes of respect paid his memory by the entire press of the city, and in an eloquent memorial by the bar.

Judge Houston left surviving him a family consisting of Mrs. Houston and their four children, Mr. Allen P. Houston and Mrs. Lytle Buchanan of Louisville, Mrs. George H. Hull of New York, and Mrs. Joseph L. Ferrell of Philadelphia.

Dictionary of Alabama Biography:

Houston, George Smith, lawyer, representative in congress, governor of Alabama, U.S. senator, was born January 17, 1811 in Williamson Co., Tenn., and died December 31, 1879 in Athens; son of David and Hannah Pugh (Reagan) Houston, natives of South Carolina, who moved to Lauderdale County from Williamson County, Tenn. about 1831 and engaged in agriculture; grandson of John and Mary (Ross) Houston, who in 1760 emigrated from County Tyrone, Ireland, and settled in Newberry District. SC. His maternal grandmother was of Welsh ancestry, a member of the family of Pughs, noted for their promotion of education. He received an elementary education in an academy in Lauderdale County; read law in the office of Judge George Coalter in Florence, and completed his studies in Judge Boyle's law school at Harrodsburg, Ky. He was admitted to the bar in 1831, and was elected to the State legislature from Lauderdale County, in 1832. He was appointed district solicitor by Gov. Gayle to fill a vacancy in 1834, but in the winter following was defeated for the position by Hon. William Richardson. He moved to Limestone COunty in that year and continued his law practice. In 1837, he was elected solicitor over Mr. Richardson, and held the office until 1841, when he was elected to congress on the general ticket over Gen. John M. Lewis of Franklin County. He was re-elected in 1843, defeating Robert Armstrong of Lauderdale; in 1845 over John A. Nooe of Franklin; in 1847 over Hon. David Hubbard of Lawrence; and voluntarily retired in 1849, resuming his profession in partnership with Col. Egbert Jones. He was again elected to congress over Mr. Hubbard in 1851; was unopposed in 1853 and 1855, defeated Mr. Hubbard for the third time in 1857, and Hon. William A. Hewlett of Walker COunty, 1859. He retired from congress in January, 1861, with ihs colleagues when the state seceded. During his eighteen years in congress, he was recognized as one of the leaders of the house, was a member of many important committees, and was chairman of the committees on military affairs, ways and means, and the judiciary. He was opposed to secession and probably made the last Douglas speech ever made in Alabama. While in congress and secession seemed almost a certainty, he advocated and became a member of the committee of thirty-three to devise means to save the union; but when Alabama seceded, he drafted and presented to the speaker the formal withdrawal of the Alabama delegation from the Federal congress. He retired to his home, and though not in active service, refused repeatedly to take the oath of allegiance demanded by the Federal authority, and was thoroughly in sympathy with the Confederacy and contributed to its support.

"At the close of the war he was elected to the U.S. senate, defeating Hon. John Forsyth, of Mobile, and Hon. A. B. Cooper of Wilcox, but was not allowed a seat as his state was denied representation. He was a delegate to the National Union Convention at Philadelphia in 1866; was defeated for the U.S. senate by ex-Gov. Winston that same year; and resumed the practice of law at Athens, in partnership with Hon. Lake Pryor. In 1873 he was a candidate for the Federal senate but withdrew his name before the election. In 1874, when the radical party was in control of the state, Mr. Houston was elected governor over David P. Lewis in the first Democratic victory after the enforcement of the reconstruction measures. As governor, he advocated a policy which converted the penitentiary, that had previously been a considerable charge to the state, into a source of state revenue, and urged economy in every department of the state, setting the example by saving more than ten thousand dollars of the fifteen thousand set aside for contingent expenses. The most important measure before the legislature during his administration was the State debt. In a message to the legislature, Gov. Houston recommended the appointment of a committee to investigate and make some adjustment of it. The committee was composed of T. B. Bethea, Levi W. Lawless, and George S. Houston, chairman. Under the management of that committee, the bonded debt of thirty million dollars was reduced within a period of five years to a figure which was easily handled by the state, and under Gov. Houston's administration the state was restored to a condition which brought it into agreement with the Union. At the expiration of his term, he was re-elected, and shortly afterward was balloted for in the caucus for U.S. senator. He withdrew his name in order to serve his second term as governor, and at the expiration of that ..."

In 1878 he resigned his executive position to take the seat in the United States Senate to which he had been elected by the state legislature. He died in office one year later.

The following two abstracts likely refer to the "other" Capt. George May of Egg Harbour:

Abstracts from PA Gazette 1748-1755:

page 184 yr 1752 Servants imported in the ship SAMPSON Capt. May, from Bristol, to be sold by Pole and Howell (2 Jul 1752)

page 302 yr 1754 George Hamilton, scotch servant, runaway from George May, who lives at Egg-Harbour, Gloucester Co (29 Aug 1754)

1779 List of Taxables, Currituck Co., NC: paid 11 pounds, 9 shillings, 0 pence.

George was from Gloucester Co., NJ where his daughter was married in 1763. Is he related to this man?:

"George May settled in Mays Landing in the early eighteenth century [note: between 1749 and 1760]. Thus, Mays Landing was named for George May." The first settlement in Atlantic County was in Somers Point. In 1693, John Somers, a member of the Quaker Society of Friends, was appointed by the Cape May County Court as supervisor of roads and constable of Great Egg Harbor. The following year, Egg Harbor was made a part of the Old Gloucester County. http://commlink.atlantic.county.lib.nj.us/history.htm

Atlantic County History

[Note: Though the similarities are too many to dismiss, I have a genealogy of some descendants of this George May which indicate a son, John May with a wife Phebe Seull; John died by 16 Apr 1772, as an Inventory of his Estate was made on that date. My ancestor George May had a son John May who had a wife Hester, and who died in Currituck Co., NC. My ancestor could be this man's father, but dates make that unlikely and a cousin or uncle / nephew relationship seems more likely.]

Egg Harbor and Mays Landing are about 5 miles apart in present day Atlantic County, NJ, about 20 miles west of Atlantic City. Egg Harbor is on an inlet, The Great Egg Harbor River. (George May was a ship's captain or mariner). The town was named after explorer and local dock maker, George May. That George May also lived and owned a lot of property and resided at Great Egg Harbor.

Children of George May are:

33 i. Rebekah May, born Bef. 1748; married William Fauquier Abt. 25 Jul 1763 in Egg Harbor, Gloucester Co., NJ.

ii. Joseph May, died Bef. 07 Jul 1795 in Currituck Co., NC; married Frances <Unknown>.

Much of the information on descenants of George Ridley was provided by Janie Ridley Bice, who has published the book "Ridley Roots", which is sold out.

A recent book was published about Thompson's Station, Tennessee in Williamson County. Some of the descendents of George Ridley lived there for generations. There is a section in the book on the family based on information from John B. Ridley, IV in Franklin, Tennessee.

In 1789 George Ridley, Sr. sold land in Sullivan Co., TN.

"Ridleys of Rutherford County, Tennessee.

Capt. George Ridley descended from an old and respectable family that came from England to Virginia in 1635; he was born ... in 1727 or 1738, and died Nov. 29, 1835. He claimed to be ninety-seven years old at the time of his death ; but his widow and children said he lost the count of eleven years during a severe illness, and that he was one hundred and eight years of age when he deceased. ... He emigrated from Virginia when young, and settled in east Tennessee, then a part of North Carolina, on the Holston River, and followed the occupation of a "cowboy," or, to use polite parlance, a "herdsman." About the year 1790, he purchased a large tract of land in middle Tennessee, and removing, settled within one mile of where the city of Nashville now stands. Captain Ridley transported his family, household goods, and farm implements down the Holston River in large flat-boats; thence down the Tennessee River over the "mussel-shoals," and with the aid of his elder sons and eight negro-men brought his boats into the Mississippi River; thence by hard pulling and pushing with oars and poles up the Cumberland River to the present site of Nashville, where he came to anchor in the middle of the stream, and kept guard to protect himself and family from the hostile Indians then passing up and down in their canoes. Being one of the first settlers in middle Tennessee, he immediately erected a strong timber block-house, surrounded by stockades some ten feet in height, as a shelter and protection from the Indians. Here he cleared a large farm and became extensively engaged in agriculture and the raising of stock. The life of this man was attended with all the adventures and dangers incident to the pioneer of those days, and an interesting volume could be written on his experience. He was particularly qualified to act his part in leading the van of civilization into the wilderness, by the possession of remarkable courage, energy, fortitude, and physical endurance. Captain Ridley was a man possessed of a high sense of honor, and proverbially regarded as one in whom truth stood above all virtues. He was fond of prayer and the Holy Scriptures, and in sentiment a Missionary Baptist; this sentiment he practically exemplified in his relations with his fellow-men. With a force of will unyielding, whatever idea he embraced was held with a tenacity peculiarly his own; his traits of character were prominent and clearly defined; uncompromising and persistent, he would not allow any thing to stand in the way of his plans, and would drive straight on and execute where others failed. His characteristics were transmitted to his posterity, and typical representatives of the old pioneer may now be found in every branch of the Ridley family. I have not learned how the title "captain" came to the subject of this notice, but presume to say he was leader of some company during the Indian wars."

Notes for Sarah Ridley:

The Heroine of Buchanan Station. A great journal of this battle has been preserved.

"... was born in eastern Tennessee ... and had thirteen children, many of whom were distinguished. She was a woman of remarkable courage and fortitude; cool and self-commanding, and being united to a husband who was a celebrated pioneer and Indian-fighter, her associations were calculated to develop those traits of character so necessary in women of the frontier settlements. Her husband had implicit confidence in his wife's judgement, and confided to her all his plans and undertakings, many of which were carefully overlooked by her, and of which she in person promptly executed during the memorable battle at his fort, on the 30th of September, 1792, when the Indians, -- about nine hundred warriors from the combined Cherokees, Chickasaws, and Creeks, -- made an attack at midnight, but were badly defeated by only twenty-one men in the fort. In this fierce conflice of battle, the intrepidity of Mrs. Buchanan's courage, and fearless deeds performed by her, crowned her through life as a model Indian-fighter of the West. Her son, in a letter to the author, says of his mother: "Her many virtues vie with proud fame of Tennessee's greatness; her posterity from five generations is as numerous as the leaves on some forest tree, and, although she died in 1832, she lives in remembrance and affection among hosts of Tennessee's citizenship." She is said to have been the third white woman born in her State."

Children of John Houston and Mary Ross are:

i. John Houston, Jr., born Abt. 1751 in Co. Tyrone, Ireland.

Notes for John Houston, Jr.:

According to one account, he was the first-born and never married. "By right of primogeniture, he was entitled to an estate valued at $50,000; but it was never obtained, in consequence of neglect or unskillful management. The family records were in his possession when they left Ireland. Where he made his home is not now (1877) known." Biographical Skectches, Etc. of the Houston Family, p. 287. by Rutherford 1882.

A John Houston is often called "Jr." and has a Revolutionary war record, was married, and left numerous descendants. Some descendants of that line believe he is this man.

ii. Margaret Houston, born Aft. 1752 in Co. Tyrone, Ireland; married James McCracken; born 1750; died 1802 in Mecklenburg Co., NC.

Notes for James Houston:

"James Hewston, Sr. left Newberry County, South Carolina in 1798 to move to Greene County, Georgia. There are three reasons why we know he left South Carolina around 1798. First, he sold his land in Newberry County to James Wright August 7, 1798. Next , during the late 1700s and early 1800s county roads are maintained by teams of land owners who live within 10 miles of a road. The country court would choose prominent citizens in the area to supervise or oversee the maintenance of the road. The county court is similar to todays county commissioners. James Hewston is chosen with Hugh Boyd to oversee a road that passes from Newberry to Kings Creek to Enoree River to the Tyger river. They must of made a good team because they are repeatedly chosen from the October term of 1795 till July term of 1798. Boyd is again chosen in 1798 but someone replaces James Hewston. Finally, James Hewston does not appear on the 1800 census of Newberry County or of South Carolina. David, Samuel and John Jamess brothers however do appear on the 1800 Newberry census.

"The Georgia Tax Digest for Greene County in the year 1801 lists a James Hughston on page 42. From land records in Greene County, we know that he settled in an area of the county along Fishing Creek called Greshamville. No record of its incorporation as a town or village can be found. It derived its name from the many Greshams who settled in the area. Many Gresham went held important posts in Greene Countys government. The Postmasters office was held by two generations of Greshams. Coincidental they were named Young Gresham. Also Young Gresham, Sr. is mentioned as being a Physician. One can find Greshamville marked on some current maps.

"By 1805 Jamess brothers have joined him in Georgia. On the 1805 Tax Digest for Georgia, Samuel and David have joined James in Greene County. John and his son Alexander are in nearby Clarke County. Nephews John Jr. and Benjamin Hughson have joined the family in Greene county by 1810. In 1806, James Hewston buys over 200 acres across the Oconee River in the new Morgan County. In the deed to his new land, James lists his children as the future beneficiaries of the purchase. This land is on the Cherokee Indian frontier having just been ceded to the settlers. The new Indian border was within a couple of miles of Hewstons land. As late as 1813 a massacre of settlers by Indians occurred within a few miles of the Hewston farm. There were several deaths along with the kidnapping of two females. Living this close to danger it was important to have family nearby in times of need. In 1817 John Y. Hughston, James Hewstons oldest son has bought his own farm and has settled within a couple of miles of his father.

"By the 1820s, James brother John has moved his family to nearby Jasper (then called Irwin) County. In the 1826 Georgia Land Lottery, John won large tracks of land in Fayette, Troup and Coweta County. He moves his family of grown sons John Jr., Hugh, Samuel, and Oliver to the area to manage his farms. This is a fine example of the Hewstons clannish nature.

"A similar situation happened with Jamess family. In the 1826 Georgia Land Lottery, James Jr., David Ross, Young Gresham and James Sr. enter the lottery together. James Jr. is the only winner. He remains in Morgan County and sells his land in Troup County. James Sr's son-in-laws John Hargrove, Julius Skinner and Posey Johnston also won land in previous lotteries but they remain in Morgan County till after the death of their father-in-law, James in 1837.

"From the will of James Hewston we know his children were: Polly, David, Prudy, Peggy, Nicy, Luicinda, James, John and Young Gresham. Mary Polly Houston marries Isaac Culberson. David Ross Huston marries Ann F. A. Ellington and Mary O Kelly. Prudence Prudy Hewston marries Posey Johnson. Margaret Peggy Hewston marries Benjamin Auberry. Eunice Nicy Houston marries John R. Hargroves. Lucinda Houston marries Julius Skinner. Young Gresham Houston marries Harriet Amend Haynes. It is unclear who James Hewston, Jr. and John Y. Houston marry.

"Listed in the will of John Hewston, father of our James Hewston we find the names of his brothers and sisters. John, David, Ross, William and Samuel are his brothers. His sisters are listed as Mary Hopper (Harper) wife of John Hopper and Elizabeth (Peggy) McCrackin wife of James McCrackin Jr. John Hewston died in 1808. Most of the clan has moved to Georgia except for Mary Hewston the widow, Mary Hoppers, Peggy McCrackins, Rosss and Williams families. A rift develops in the administration of the

will. By 23 February 1811 a full blown civil case has arisen. John and James are fighting with Ross and William over the dispersion of the proceeds of the estate. The interesting point is that the Georgia part of the family has aligned itself against the South Carolina family.

"When William leaves South Carolina to move west in the late 1820s he skips Georgia and goes straight to Alabama. Evidently the animosity ran deep. Before William Hewston leaves South Carolina, he serves a stint as Postmaster of a station called Houstons Store in 1827. The store is left to be administered by a nephew Andrew Turner when William leaves the state. Andrews mother is Mary Hewston which is not the aunt married to John Hopper but another aunt. The name of the station changes to McMorries Store and later to Popular Grove before being discontinued after the Civil War.

"James and Samuel Hewston must have been pig farmers before they left South Carolina. They are in court in the 1790s charging someone with rustling pigs. After a year at trial the court rules it was only a case of mistakenly branding the wrong pigs. A cash settlement was made. James stayed busy because he was involved in owning a tavern with the Goodman family. Something ran a foul because James winds up suing the Goodmans for a cash settlement. There was a criminal case pending against James right before he left for Georgia that was eventually dismissed.

"Religion must have been very important to the Hewston Family. The closest Presbyterian church was in Newberry eight to ten miles away. The Reverend Robert McClintock, a local circuit rider, had been preaching in the area before the war, but he must flee South Carolina when the Revolutionary War starts. He was stuck in Ireland till after the war. After The Revolution War, James Hewstons father wants a church nearby. He donates one acre of land to the Reverend McClintock to build a church and cemetery. The church was named Guilders Creek Presbyterian Church. It was also known as Kings Creek and Indian Creek Presbyterian. The church had a strong following with some of the family being buried there. Ross A. Houston preaches there on occasion before becoming a circuit rider. He serves as a circuit rider in Georgia, South Carolina and retires to preach in Alabama. His name appears on on many marriage certificates, especially in Greene County, Georgia.

"Moses Waddell is a Presbyterian minister from Willington South Carolina. He preaches on a circuit which takes him to Newberry South Carolina. He later preaches in Greene County, Georgia. The Goshen Presbyterian Church is very close to Greshamville where he occasionally preaches. He soon begins preaching in Greensboro, Georgia. He becomes instrumental in starting a college in Greensboro. Later, he is chosen to be The University of Georgias first president at Athens in Clarke County.

"This is the same time that Young Houston should be appearing on the tax digest in Morgan County. It is unclear exactly when Young was born but he appears on the deed in 1806, which means he should be 18 years old by 1824. Georgia Law said that all males 18 or older should appear on the county's tax digest. There is a Houston studying at the University at the time but it is unclear if he is related . Could Young Houston have gone to college. He does hold the position of plantation overseer in later life. His first three sons, William H., James D., and John Scott could read and write according to the census reports. James Decatur lists his occupation as a teacher in 1860 census. Living with a wealthy landlord in town, William H. Houston and his cousin William Haynes lists their occupations as clerks in 1860 census. Could he had been a law clerk studying law? John Scott Houston is listed as a plantation overseer for his grandmother Elizabeth Haynes and uncle Malcolm Haynes.

"The pioneers on the frontier of South Carolina took politics very seriously in 1776. Living on the Indian frontier protection from the Indians was very important as well as protection from the Spanish in Florida. Many of the cash crops grown in South Carolina were sold in Great Britain. The issue of taxation without representation was at the heart of a major uprising that had occurred when The Stamp Act was implemented in nearby Savannah. The Hewstons were of Scot-Irish descent arriving from County Tyronne Ireland after 1760. Immigrants were required by British law to take an oath of allegiance to Britain before land grants were given. John Hewston had received a land grant in 1771. Perhaps this is why his son John served in the Continental Army in his fathers place. John served several tours enlisting in 1776 and serving till 1782 as a private. He applies for a pension in Coweta County, Georgia in 1835. James Hewston and his other brothers served in the South Carolina Militia. The militia members would work their vocations till a need to fight arose. The 96 District of South Carolina which included Newberry County was the scene of many skirmishes between Whigs and Tories. The politics of Newberry County were dividing families down the middle between Whigs and Tories. The Turner family, which Mary Hewston becomes part of by marriage, has brothers-in-law fighting as Tories and Whigs. One of the brothers is killed while fighting as a Tory, forcing another Tory brother and his family to move to Florida after the war. On a visit back to South Carolina an assassin wounds him. He is smuggled back to Florida in a coffin playing dead.

"(It should be noted that the Houston name had two distinct pronunciations during this time. An early Governor of Georgia James Houstoun pronounced his name HOUSE ton. One finds several spellings of our ancestors named HUGH ston such as: Hewston, Huston, Hueston Huson Hughston or Heuston. It seems that the HOUSE-ton pronunciation was more frequently connected to English nobility or very affluent British families. The rise in Sam Houston's popularity after the war of Texas Independence, probably did the most to standardize the pronunciation.)"

There was one James Houston in 1785 who was living on the Oconee River in Greene Co., Ga. (DB2 p.339-340)? Smith (above) states that James was on the 1801 Greene Co. tax list and bought over 200 acres across the Oconee River in 1806 in the new county of Morgan Co., Ga.

Notes for Mary Hughey:

Is Mary Hughey the sister of James Hughey of Rowan Co., who was born c 1777?

James and Joseph Hughey are enumerated in the 1820 Morgan Co GA census, Leonard's Militia District, which is where the Awbrey and Johnston families were lurking.

v. Samuel Houston, born Abt. 1759 in Co. Tyrone, Ireland; died Abt. 1789; married Lydia or Mary Reagan; born 1768 in "of Rowan Co., NC"; died 1849.

Notes for Lydia or Mary Reagan:

It is not certain that this is a Reagan / Ragan spouse to Samuel Houston.

vi. Ross Houston, born Abt. 1764 in SC; died Bef. 26 Jan 1850 in Lauderdale Co., AL; married Mary Ann McCracken Abt. 1813 in Newberry Dist., SC; born 1785 in SC; died Aft. 26 Jan 1850.

vii. William Houston, born Abt. 1768 in Newberry Dist., SC; married Mary 'Polly' Smith Bef. 1820.

46 viii. David Ross Houston, born Abt. 1774 in Charleston District, SC; died 24 Sep 1836 in Lauderdale Co., AL; married Hannah Pugh Reagan Bef. 1796 in Newberry Dist., SC.

 

94. Reason Reagan, born Bef. 1756 in possibly Frederick Co., VA. He was the son of 188. <Uncertain> <Which> Ragan. He married 95. Hannah Pugh Abt. 1773.

95. Hannah Pugh, born 21 Nov 1754 in Frederick Co., VA; died 25 Jul 1838 in Kirklin, Clinton, IN. She was the daughter of 190. <Uncertain> <Which> Pugh.

Notes for Reason Reagan:

It seems extremely likely to the compiler of this file that Rezen Ragan / Reason Reagan is descended from Timothy Ragan / Mary Lary who are also in this file, who have at least three other Reason / Rezen / Rezin grandsons. However, most of the possible candidates have been studied, and they are shown with spouses other than the known spouse of my ancestor. Thomas Reagan married Hannah, the widow of a Mr. Reagan - and this now is my best bet for the right ancestor, the deceased first husband of Hannah Pugh.

Though biographies of Gov. George Smith Houston are consistent on the father of Hannah Pugh Reagan being Reason Ragan or Rezin Ragan, it is possible that they are wrong and this refers to the grandfather, and the father of Thomas Ragain.

Notes for Hannah Pugh:

This may be Hannah Pugh, as she was listed as Mrs. Hannah Reagan, presumably a widow, in the marriage records. Hannah Pugh is known to have married a Reason Reagan, though which one has not been confirmed. It is common to name a first male child after a deceased first husband, as well.Hannah Pugh's family likely moved to Ohio from South Carolina. Originally Welsh. Evidence and proximity lead me to believe she is of the family of Azariah Pugh, and she is likely his niece or cousin once removed. WFT 14 indicates that Azariah Pugh, Sr.'s daughter Hannah Pugh married James Coppock. Their first child together was born when she was 29 years old. She may have married Reason Reagan first, and he may have died young.

Another theory is that a different Hannah Pugh was the first wife of Reason Reagan that married Connell, and that she died young.

It seems most likely that Reason Reagan died early after the marriage, after the birth of the first or second child, and that she remarried to Thomas Reagan in Newberry Co., SC. His marriage record indiates that he married Mrs. Hannah Reagan, born 1754.

Separately, a James Ragan married a Catherine in Newberry, and his parents have not been found.

Child of Reason Reagan and Hannah Pugh is:

47 i. Hannah Pugh Reagan, born Bet. 1773 - 03 Nov 1776 in SC; died 01 Dec 1847 in Lauderdale Co., AL; married David Ross Houston Bef. 1796 in Newberry Dist., SC.

 

Generation No. 8

132. <Unknown> May, born Abt. 1700.

Notes for <Unknown> May:

Could this be Capt. George May of Mays Landing, New Jersey? Once in Gloucester County, it is now in Atlantic County. [note: there were two men named George Mays in Egg Harbor, adjacent to Mays Landing; each had a son named John with different families who died in different decades and in different states.]

Note: An early marriage in Gloucester Co., NJ was to William May, Jr. and Mary Jane Edwards on 19 Jul 1731. This is likely after either George May was born.

Mr. Christian May was in Burlington Co., NJ in the years before both George Mays were born. The family seems to have owned taverns in Burlington and, later, in Egg Harbour. It is not known if the two George Mays were related, or if so, how closely (uncle & nephew, first cousins, father-son, etc.).

Notes for William Powell II:

According to several sources, Frances Powell who married William Elliott, son of John Elliott and Eleanor, is the daughter of this William Powell and Eleanor Peyton. Other sources that indicate Eleanor died young and William married twice more are rebutted by his 1787 will naming his wife, Eleanor Powell, as a co-executor of his will.

William Powell was born at Greenfields, came to Dunfries in Prince William Co., VA ca 1734/5, and died in Prince William Co., VA. His will was dated 24 Feb 1787. He patented a large tract of land in Loudoun Co., in White Plains area, includin the site of future Middleburg. One indication is that he died in Prince William Co., VA.

"William Powell was a young Marylander of good family and property who had but recently settled in the now forgotten metropolis of Dumphries on the Potomac, whence he had married in 1736, Eleanor, the only daughter of Valentine Peyton, born at 'Stony Hill' on Acquia, in old Stafford, Bugess and Colonel of County Militia of old Prince William...." ["William and Mary College Quarterly Historical Magazine", Vol. 19--Series 2, 1939, p. 131, "Lt. Col. Leven Powell", Address of James D.

Leven Powell and Sarah Harrison Powell, his wife, in the Episcopal Church in Middleburg, Va. on the occasion of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of their births.]

Was another John Powell a son of this William Powell? John Powell b c 1745 d c 1807, a surgeon in the Revolution, married Elizabeth Digges, daughter of Edward Digges and Anne Harrison (who descended from Sir Dudley Digges).

His will:

"I give and bequeath unto son Leven Powell twenty shillings sterling only ... unto my daughter Frances Elliot twenty shillings only ... unto my daughter Margaret Bristoe twenty shillings sterling only ... unto my son William Powell fifty acres of land adjoining the land I before gave him deed for to be laid off as follows ... unto my son Peyton Powell the plantation he now has under lease from me ... also one thousand acres of land and marsh lying on the Delaware bay being bound by the bay and the sea ... unto my daughter Sarah Powell eighty acres of land to be laid out ... also a cow and a half bedroom furniture ... two pewter basons two dishes ... ...

Notes for Margaret Powell:

Patrick Co., VA Deed Book 1, page286.

22 April 1795, Margaret Bristow sold to Richard Massey for 50 pounds 100 acres in Patrick Co., "on the waters of Goblintown Creek"

If Margaret was married to William, he likely would have had to have been dead by Feb. 1794, because she could not have bought sold land as a married woman.

Notes for William Bristow:

He may have died before Dec. 1794 (see his wife's record).

A Benjamin Bristow had conveyed land to his son William in Henry Co. before the area became Patrick Co. in 1785. There is definitely a connection. It is likely that William was their father, but several Bristow researchers, since the 1940's have studied the deeds and powers of attorney without being positive. Mrs. Emma Dunn Mastin of Daviess Co. and M. E. Bristow of Richmond, Va, who wrote articles in Tyler's Mag. on the Bristows, exchanged numerous letters on the subject.

The name's of Jasper and his siblings are listed in the following powers-of-attorney:

Bristow Power of Attorney

"Know ye that we Thomas Bristow Peyton Bristow Henry Bristow and James Atwood of the County of Preble and State of Ohio and Jasper Bristow of Shelby County and Sary Bristow widow of Benj. Bristow Deceased and her children James Bristow, Joseph Lewis John Harres (signed as Harris) Sarah Bristow Jun and Samuel Bristow heirs of Benjamin Bristow Do all being Legal heirs of William Bristow Deceased have made Constituted Ordained and appointed Jeames (sic) Bristow our true and Lawfull attorney for us and in our names to sell make Deed, of Conveyance to all Lands in which we have any claim lying in Patrick County and State of Virginia . . ."

They sold their share of this land and also their share of Margaret's land. This was made in 1815, certified in Preble Co 1815, Shelby Co. KY in 1817. Another power of attorney from Nathan Culver Wm Bristow Leven Bristow and Nancy Bristow of Cumberland Co. KY to James Bristow had already been given in 1814.

Patrick Co., VA Deed Bok 1, 6 Feb. 1794 Joseph Street to Margaret Bristow 50 acres. Witnesses included James Bristow and Thos. Bristow.

Later James sold their shares of that land, but Sarah, widow of Benjamin, and her children were not listed on the deed.

[Patrick Co., VA, Deed Book 5, pages 159-160 "Indenture...eighth day of September... [1817 in words] between Wm Bristow Thos. Bristow Jas. Bristow Peyton Bristow Leven Bristow Henry Bristow Jasper Bristow Nathan Culver Jas.

273. Ellinor Smith, born Bef. 1646; died Aft. 23 Aug 1688 in Somerset Co., MD.

Notes for Henry Hayman:

From "George Bailey of Maryland and Some of His Descendants" by Margaret Gerhart Woolf 1992

"The first of the American Hayman family was Henry Hayman who was born in Devonshire, England about 1634. The available evidence suggests that he came from the vicinity of the village of Netherex in the Hundred of Highridge in South Devon. Parish records list the death of a Henry Hayman as a resident in the Parish. There was a Henry Hayman living in nearby Silferton as early as 1569. In addition, no where else in Devon are the names of Henry Hayman's five sons (Henry, James, WIlliam Charles and Arthur) repeated in local records with such regularity over several generations.

"Henry Hayman arrived in the Colony of Virginia in 1650 as a labor indentured to William Morgan of Gloucester (now Mathews) County. On October 26, 1650, William Morgan (Morgaine) was granted 300 acres in Gloucester County on Mockjack (or Mobjack) Bay in payment for transporting Henry Hayman (Hamond) and others.

"Henry remained in Gloucester County after the indenture ended and he married there to a woman named Ellinor. On August 16, 1663, their first child, Henry Hayman, was born in Gloucester County.

"The family moved from Gloucester to Maryland prior to May 1664, where Henry patented 200 acres on Great Monie Creek in Somerset County. The property was called "Second Choice." On April 5, 1666, he patented an additional 200 acres of land and named it "Hayman's Hill." ...

"According to Somerset County records, Henry Hayman was a planter relying primarily on tobacco as a cash crop. "

His father may have been Isaac Hayman or Isaac Haymon.

From "Old Somerset of the Eastern Shore" p 473-474:

The following persons were entitled to 50 acres of land each for coming into Maryland to settle. In some instances they assigned their "right" to the 50 acres to others, who received a grant thereof. In other instances the parties were transported by others who therefore received the "right" of 50 acres of land. Those whom we can prove to have been actual settlers in the Somerset area are marked with an asterisk. The names of these "rights" have been obtained from the Land Patent books, Hall of Records, Annapolis, which books contain records of surveys as made on warrants issued and names of those proving "rights" as well as the patents issued. The references given: e. g. (5:209-211) refer to volume and page of Land Patent books.

p 478

August 10, 1666--George Johnson and Jno. Wynder enter Henry Hayman,* Elinor Hayman,* Henry Hayman, Jr.* (10:190).

p281-282

,..., from Gloucester, in Virginia, came Henry Hayman, ...,

,..., Henry Hayman, ..., were of English "origins."

p 463

Henry Hayman and Cornelius Johnson appraised the household goods of the Williams family. This family had been murdered by (an) Indian(s) of the Nanticoke tribe:

,...,Cornelius Johnson and Henry Hayman were the appraisers. (EB 14, pp. 236-7.)

286. William Ballance, born Bef. 1635; died 1700 in Norfolk Co., VA. He married 287. Mary Any <Unknown>.

287. Mary Any <Unknown>, born Aft. 1640.

Notes for William Ballance:

Paraphrased and quoted extensively from Mrs. Ernestine Liverman's article in Currituck Co. History: William Ballance came over from England in 1656, one of 24 passengers whose passage was paid by William Justice. The captain of the ship, Capt. John Frame, was granted 1198 acres of land in (now) Charles City Co., VA on 26 Apr 1656 and "due said Justice as marriage the daughter and heir of said Frame" as also for the transport of 24 persons.

Rebecca Frame was listed as a passenger on the ship.

In later years William Ballance made it possible for others to come over by paying their passage and he received land grants.

After his arrival in 1656, he made his way to (now) Currituck Co., NC. According to the history of the county, this area was not settled until around 1670, although by 1663 John Harvey had received 600 acres as a land grant and a few settlers had begun coming down from Virgini during the late 1660's. Inhabitants at that time were mostly Indians, who gave the area the name Currituck, 'Land of the Wild Goose.'

The Ballance family settled around the area, but the state line was not well known, and some did not know whether they resided in Virginia or North Carolina.

In 1728 Gov. Everard of NC appointed 4 commissioners, Edward Moseley (chairman), Christopher Glae, William Little and John Lovick, to work with representatives of the VA government, including William Byrd II, who helped "run the line" and wrote the classic "History of the Dividing Line Betwixt Virginia and North Carolina."

The commissioners met at Currituck Inlet 5 Mar 1728 and joined the surveyors and ran ____ (lines?) cutting several plantations. They encamped on Robert Ballance's plantation a little way southward of North West River Bridge.

When the boundary line was finally finished Virginia was surprised to learn that they lost much land that they believed to be their own. Most of the land that belonged to the Ballance families was found to be in North Carolina, although at least one Ballance plantation was in Virginia. The dispute and debate that had gone on for so long was finally at an end.

William Ballance, first of the ancestors to arrive in America, and his wife, Mary Any, had 6 children.

In the early 1700s, some of the Ballances moved over to Churches Island, which was surrounded by marsh lands and canals and transportation was strictly by water. Today Churches Island is accesible by motor and is only a short distance off a main highway.

WILL OF JOSEPH HARDWICK of Nomony in the parish of Cople in the county of Westmoreland, being very sick and weak in body, dated 22 June 1698. 'Unto Sarah Clark my house keeper 20,000 pounds of tobacco, 5000 pounds to be paid this fall and the other the next ensuing year, the tobacco to remain in the hands of Benjamin Blanchflower my executor, and Mr. Robert Sanford Senr., and to be drawn out from thence at the pleasure of Sarah Clarke. . . unto my cozins James and Thomas Hardwick equally to be divided all the residue and remainder of the land not hereby disposed of which I bought of Richard Sturman' . . .

Did he have another son, Valentine?

Notes for Frances Linton:

Moses Linton's will, dated April 1729 and proved June 1729, left grandson Henry Peyton 500 acres (part of the Broad Run patent).

Many have reported (including me) that Frances Harrison was the wife of Valentine Peyton, perpetuating a supposition from years ago that has been proved wrong.

(1) Book, "Implied Marriages of Fairfax Co., Va.", Hiatt and Scott, Athens, GA: Iberian Pub. Co,, 1994: "PEYTON, Valentine & Frances, daughter of Moses Linton" [Pr. Wm. DB P:299]

Notes for Robert Peyton:

"The connection is tenative," based on family stories.

The author says "This Robert was probably the Lieut. of Va. Troops, Continental Line, killed at battle of Brandywine 11 Sep 1777."

another ref. says "was killed by the Indians in Sumner Co, TN"

"Lieut. Robert Peyton rec'd 2666 2/3 acres land fom Va. Sep 10, 1784 for 3 years service." (land was probably issued to heirs).

376. Timothy Ragan, born Abt. 1678 in Anne Arundel Co., MD; died 14 Mar 1743/44 in Anne Arundel Co., MD. He married 377. Mary Lary 24 Nov 1703 in Anne Arundel Co., MD.

377. Mary Lary, born Abt. 1686 in probably Ireland; died 23 Jan 1765 in Anne Arundel Co., MD.

Notes for Timothy Ragan:

Some consideration should be given to a Zachariah Reagan / Ragan who may be a missing brother, son, our cousin of Timothy Ragan. Timothy has a documented great-grandson named Zachariah, and the parts of Pennsylvania and Virginia where both families resided are adjacent, and may even have been parts of Virginia which were ceded to Pennsylvania (did the family actually move?).

One or more of the listed children of Timothy Ragan and Mary Lary may be children of this Zachariah, and if so, this may prove the source of the elusive Reason / Rezin Reagan that I descend from!

The father of Timothy Ragan, or at least an ancestor, may be another Cornelius Ragan who was already in the area before Timothy Ragan began leaving a trail.

Notes for Mary Lary:

Anne Arundel County Church Records of the 17th & 18th centuriesby F. Edward Wright Family Line Publications- Westminster, Md. #1420 page 129 gives proof of date and place of marriage of Timothy Ragan and Mary Lary.

Family Line Publication, Westminster,Md. 1992 lists Timothy and Mary's children. One problem is that the will says Regin Ragan insteadb of Reason Ragan.

Mary Lary's will:

The child(ren) of this couple are suspect; researchers are not convinced that this family can be documented.

Notes for Jesse Pugh:

From Frederick County, Virginia: "Settlement and Some First Families of Back Creek Valley by Wilmer L. Kerns, Ph.D. "Many Quakers moved to the Carolinas during that difficult period" of the French - Indian War in the 1740 and did not return to Frederick County, VA. Jesse Pugh advice was given to numerious Quakers emigrants as to where to stake out new land and how to apply for land grants. He was instramental in establishing the Back Creek Meeting near his residence and on his land. The first ordinary (inn) established in northern and westenr Frederick County was located in Jesse Pugh's house. George Washington and various military units stayed at Pugh's Ordinary enroute to Cumberland."

http://www.familytreemaker.com/users/s/e/a/Lynna-K-Search--kohlbecker/

On 29 July 1741 Jesse and his wife Alice requested a transfer of Certificate of Membership from the Gwynedd Monthly Meeting in Montgomery Co., PA to Hopewell Monthly Meeting in Orange (Frederick) Co., VA following their move there.

Jesse purchased 400 acres from Thomas Aeeds / Eads, probably by 1741. Aeeds had three pieces of land on Back Creek and Hogue Creek which had been surveyed by James Wood in 1735 or 1736. He sold the other two to William Hoge. Aeeds moved to Cacapon River, three miles above the mouth, near the Potomac River; he and his family were taken by the Indians during the French-Indian War and were presumed dead.

On 30 May 1751, Pugh received a Fairfax grant for the 400 acres where he lived; his house was drawn on the plat. On 8 December 1762, eh also received another grant for 150 acres, adjacent east of the 400 acres; both were located on Back Creek.

On 1 June 1763, Jesse sold 4 1/2 acres of the 150 acre trace to William Pickering for five pounds.. On 20 June 1763, he sold 150 acres to George Ruble for 20 pounds. Stating that he was moving, Jesse Pugh Sr. sold part of his 400 acres on 2 June 1789.

Notes for Azariah Pugh:

Th Hannah Pugh that married Reason Reagan may have been the daughter of Azariah Pugh. Both were in Newberry Co., NC at the right time, and both families of Pugh and Reagan migrated to Ohio. Records of descendants in a diary indicate that she was of the 'Pugh family of Ohio.' This Azariah has a daughter Hannah, and records indicate she married James Coppock. Did she have an earlier spouse? Or was she 31 when she married.

His will is dated 9 April 1793 and probated 20 Oct 1794 in Newberry Co, 96th SC. He bequeathed his plantation of 143 acres to son Thomas Pugh; 143 acres of land to son Azariah Pugh where he lived; with the rest of the estate divided equally among his other children.

Notes for Richard Creedle:

There are likely missing generations here.

Richard Creedle I died 25 July 1646 Margaret widow - York Record Book 2 page 151. Colonial Records of Glouster Co. Richard Creedle (II) 220 A. land became part of Mathews Co. due by patent to said Creedle's father page 22 (from Book 7 page 1, 5 Sept. 1679). Rent Roll 1704 Kingston which became Mathews Co.

He bought 150 acres in Charles River County (later York County), VA from Katherine Powell, widow.

He purchased 250 A. in Charles River Co. 30 April 1636 ; later in York County, VA; later Princes Ann Co., VA.

In October 1642 Richard Credle (I or II ?) is mentioned when Abraham Turner purchased 200 acres on Mock Jack Bay on Ne side of Ware River adjoining Richard Creedle (I or II ?) and others. On 8 June 1643 Richard Creedle listed 220 acres in Gloucester County, VA on North River which was granted to his father (Richard Creedle (I) ?). A Richard Creedle died 23 Nov 1646 in Charles River County, VA (later York County) leaving widow Margaret. A Richard Creedle was married to Margaret Loosemore 4 Sept 1643 in Somerset England. Is he one of the two Richards early in VA? ellenwms@beachlink.com

Notes for Margaret Land:

Her surname is not proven. Possibly of the family of Curtis Land of Charles River Co., VA (his sister?).

577. Alice <Unknown>, born Abt. 1600.

Notes for Thomas Hardwick I:

Thomas Hardwick was said to have a monopoly in trade with the West Indies and Virginia. In the records of Bristol this Thomas was referred to as Yeoman which indicates he was a landowner.

The link to his presumed ancestors is considered a stretch.

Children of Thomas Hardwick and Alice <Unknown> are:

288 i. Thomas Hardwick II, born 12 Nov 1617 in Westbury, Somerset, England; died Bet. 08 Sep 1680 - 28 Jun 1681 in Westbury, Somerset, England; married Abt. 1640.

Notes for William Hardwick Hardidge:

The names Hardwick and Hardidge were interchangeable.

Which spouse is the mother of Elizabeth, and whether there was one or two Williams is a matter of speculation. In any event, the son William that married Frances Gerard is much younger than she according to Gerard family info.

640. Robert Walker, born Abt. 1650 in Scotland.

Notes for Robert Walker:

Raised near Glasgow, Scotland. Migrated to Ireland, signed allegiance to King William at the siege of Londonderry, 1688-9.

"We believe that our ancestor was a Robert Walker who lived in Scotland, Torbolton, Ayrshire before 1665, when he was arrested for selling 'lining cloth' prohibited by newly enforced regulations promulgated by the Restored Monarchy. In 1689 he and his son, James are on the rolls of inhabitants of Londonderry, then under siege, by forces under James II and Lord Tyrconel. In 1718 two Roberts a William and a James Walker are among those living in N. Ireland who petitioned Gov. Schute of Mass. for permission to emigrate to the colonies, which request was subsequently granted, with six of James Walker's sons taking advantage beginning after 1730, three, James Henry and Andrew locating east of the Susquehanna, and three others Samuel, Robert and William on the western side. Estates are in court records for those east, but there are none for the three western Walkers." James Opfell

The information on the descendants of Robert Walker was provided by James Opfell, W. E. McClelland of Fallbrook, CA and William Reese Walker of Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, who compiled information provided by several sources over many years. Information I generated and personally researched is from the descendants of Joseph Burch Walker and Rebecca Jane Ridley. Other researchers continue to add information, and I will attempt to update this page when appropriate.

673. Margaret Beers, born Aft. 1630; died 24 Nov 1679.

Notes for Walter Powell:

"There was a Walter Powell who lived in Virginia and removed to Somerset County, Maryland, in 1668. He was born 1645 and died in 1695. He married Margaret Beere or Berry, they had one child."

History and Genealogies of the Powells in America

Many researchers claim that this Walter Powell is the son of Capt. William Powell of Jamestown, VA. There does not seem to be evidence one way or the other. This Walter Powell seems to have arrived in VA in 1643 with Capt. Samuel Mathews, a Quaker. Walter was among fourscore persons transported to VA by Capt. Samuell Mathews abt Aug 1643. After birth of first child in AccomacCo, VA, he and his family were transported to SomersetCo, MD by Jeffrey Menshall to whom Walter deeded the 150 a. he had received from Lord Baltimore as immigration land-rights, per deed dated 9 July 1671.

A brother of Capt. William Powell, Thomas Powell of England, brought suit against Capt. Samuel Matthews, for the heir's of Capt. William Powell. Capt. Samuel Matthews held land next to Capt. William's 200 acres. [thanks to Kbwhelihan@aol.com Kathleen Whelihan]

Louise Hassell LSHassell@compuserve.com made substantial corrections and additions to my information August 1998.

From:

Old Somerset of the Eastern Shore of Maryland

Walter Powell lived at "Greenfield," bequeathing this plantation, at his death in 1696/7, to his son, William Powell. William Powell likewise made his home at "Greenfield" and, dying in 1715, devised the plantation to his son, John Powell. Walter Powell directed by his will, dated March 27, 1695, probated February 4, 1696/7, that his body "be buried in the Quaker burying ground." William Powell's will, dated April 15, 1715, probated June 22, 1715, requests "to be buried according to the direction of the Quakers."

(footnote) Somerset Court, Liber DT, No. 7, pp. 41-3, deed, July, 1670, from Thomas Walker to Walter Powell for the three tracts of land, "Greenfield," "Middle," and "Exchange"; see wills of Walter and William Powell in Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. II, p. 102, and Vol. IV, p. 76. Walter Powell was evidently not a Quaker when he came into Somerset County to reside in 1669 or 1670. We find that John Powell, son of Walter and Margaret Powell, was born at Pocomoke [Pocomoke Hundred], September 27, 1674, "and baptized ye 25 day of October next following" (Somerset Court, Liber IKL, p. 209), and that Elizabeth Powell (who was daughter of Walter Powell) was married December 22, 1683, to Hugh Tingle, "by William Traile, minister" (Ibid.). William Traile was a Presbyterian minister. Now we know that Quakers did not submit their children to "baptism," nor were they married by ordained ministers. Evidently Walter Powell and his household became "convinced" later than 1674, when his infant son, John, was baptized. The date of his "conviction" and becoming a "Friend" is not known. That his daughter, Elizabeth, was married to Hugh Tingle by a Presbyterian minister is not evidence that Walter Powell may not have become a "Friend" before that date. Parents who are "Friends" cannot be held accountable for the acts of their children any more than parents who are "non-Friends." Ladies in marrying--even gentle Quaker ladies--sometimes make choice "out of meeting"!

Will dated November 20, 1695 and proved February 4, 1695/96.

"To my son, William Powell, the plantation I now live on called 'Granfield' and 50 acres called 'Powell's Addition' with 100 acres of land joining the marsh of the tract of land called 'Winter Quarter'

called 'Powell's Addition'.

"To my son, John Powell, my land called 'Winter Quarter' on the seaside.

"To my daughters, Elizabeth Tingle and Mary Evans, one tract of land called 'Hilliars Discovery' and one tract called 'Powell's Mill Pond,'

250 acres, the said two tracts containing 390 acres to be equally divided between them.

"To my daughter, Margaret Schoolfield, land called 'Olivins Portion' lying at the seaside, containing 150 acres.

"To my daughter, Catherine Powell, land called 'Friends Gift', 150 acres, lying at the seaboard side in Somerset County.

"To all my grandchildren, one cow each. All the rest of my movable estate to be divided among my six children, viz: William, John, Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret and Catherine, and my daughter Sarah, to be

equally divided.

"My three sons, viz: William Powell, John Powell and Henry Schoolfield, my sole execs."

Witnesses John Comish, Peter Dent, Alex. Maddux, Henry Ayers, Archibald Holmes.

Sons William and John Powell, daughter Elizabeth, and daughter Mary Evans. On March 28, 1695/6 Margaret Schoolfield, Catharine, Sarah; reference to "Quaker burying ground."

According to Hester Richardson, in the book 'Sidelights on Maryland History', Volume II, she says "Walter Powell became a citizen of Somerset County, Maryland prior to the year 1671. He was a gentleman of substance and social position, and was affilliated in religion with the peaceful people called Quakers, his reason for leaving Virginia and seeking a home in the "Land of Scnctuary" being not hard to find, for the conditions were especially rigorous for his co-religionists in the Colony of Virginia. In the year 1671 he disposed of his immigration land-rights, received for bringing himself and family into Maryland: 'Know all men by these presents that I, Walter Powell, of Somerset County, in the Province of Maryland, planter, for valuable consideration do assign and set over unto Jeffry Minshall, of the same County and Province, planter, all my rights, title, interest, claims and demand of and to one hundred and fifty acres of land dued to me for transporting myself, Margaret, my wife, and Elizabeth Powell, my child, out of Virginia and into this Province. To have and to hold the same etc. July 12, 1671. Walter Powell.'" (Annapolis Land Record, Liber 16, page 304).

"Walter Powell's home plantation was on the Pocomoke River. Here six of his children were born, viz: William, John, Margaret, Catherine and Sarah, their births being registered in Liber I,K,L of the Land Records of Somerset County. On page 210 of the same record the death of Margaret, the faithful wife of Walter Powell, is recorded as died and buried at his plantation in Pocomoke November 26, 1679."

"That Walter Powell was a man of importance both in a material and social sense is evidenced by his extensive land holdings and the intermarriages of his children with some of the best families in Maryland and Virginia. His lands entered in the Land Records at Annapolis were:

"Powell's Inclusion", 256 acres, surveyed May 1686, for Walter Powell, back from the Seabord Side. 128 acres possessed by Hugh Ingle in his wife's right. The residue by Walter Evans, who intermarried with Powell's daughter (Lord Baltimore's Rent Rolls for Somerset County, Liber No. 1, page 142).

"Powell's Lott," 443 acres, surveyed May 2, 1687, for Walter Powell, lying on the Seaboard side. 343 acres in possession of Charles Townsend for John Powell in Accomack, Virginia; 100 acres claimed by William Powell John Powell sold this land to William Holland, who owned it in 1727 (Lord Baltimore's Rolls for Somerset County, Annapolis Records, Liber No. 1, page 142).

"Winter Quarter," 200 acres, surveyed August 6, 1679, for John Godin, Assigned to Walter Powell, on the North Side of St. Martin's (river) south side of Herring Creek. Possessed by Charles Townsend in the right of John Powell of Accomack. (Rent Rolls for Somerset County, Liber No. 1, Page 75). The Peninsula of Virginia east of the Chesapeake Bay was generally designated in the old records as first as Acchomacke and later as Accomack and Accomac. The term covered territorially the present counties of Northampton and Accomac. The tract of land called Winter Quarter on St. Martin's River was on the Seaboard side near the present town of Berlin. This explanation is necessary since there were several other tracts of land of the same name located in different parts of Somerset County.

"Powell's Recovery," 112 acres, surveyed May 27, 1695, for Walter Powell upon the Seaboard side. "Powell's Addition", 50 acres surveyed April 2, 1683 for William Stevens on the north side of Pokomoke River. Assigned to Walter Powell, Posession of William Powell (Somerset County Rent Rolls, Annapolis, Liber No. 1, pages 2, 187 and 232).

Notes for Charles Brent:

Lucy Jane Brent Palmer, in 'Virginia Genalogies':

"Charles Brent of Stafford County, Virginia who married Hannah Innes, daughter of James Innes of Richmond County, Virginia, is supposed to be a grandson of Hugh Brent the immigrant who came to Lancaster County in 1644, but I have not been able to establish his ancestry.

"There is on record a will of George Brent of Lancaster, who mentions son Charles, but speaks of him not being yet of age in 1740. It has been recorded by various members of the family in their Brent genealogies that this George Brent of Lancaster was the father of Charles Brent of Stafford County who married Hannah Innes, but this statement has been proved untrue, because Charles Brent mentioned in his father's will as being under age in 1740, was too young to have been Charles of Stafford County, who had children as early as 1727. Therefore the supposition is now that Charles Brent and George were brothers, and were the sons of a Hugh Brent who died intestate in Lancaster in 1713, the said Hugh being the son of Hugh Brent, the emigrant, mentioned in his father's will.

"Another supposition is that Charles Brent of Stafford County, Va., may have come directly from England, as there is a record of a grant of land to him in 1728; and also we have record of Chancery Proceedings in Court in London before 1714, and also in 1726, of a suit mentioning Charles Brent if St. Giles-in-the-fields, Gent., against Thomas Morgan, Mary Brent (plaintiff's mother) and Francis Brent (plaintiff's elder brother).

"This Charles Brent could have been the Charles Brent of Stafford County, Va., as the date of this suit, 1726, would correspond with his age at that date. The birth of his son, Innes, is recorded in the Overwharton Parish register in 1727, but it is surmised that the two daughters, Ann and Catherine, mentioned in his will, were born before he came to Stafford County, Virginia, because we do not find a record of their births there. One of these daughters, Anna, called Nancy, married Hugh Atwell of London."

"In the list of Oxford graduates from 1659 to 1850, we fine one Charles Brent who was graduated May 4, 1705. This Charles might have been Charles of Stafford who was married, as we suppose, about 1720, and died 1756...."

More information including land records is presented in that account.

His will:

"In the name of God Amen, I, Charles Brent, Gent. in the Parish of Overwharton in the County of Stafford, being mindful of the frailty and uncertainty of human nature and that it is appointed for all men once to die, but considering the uncertainty of the time thereof, being of sound mind, memory and judgment do therefore make this my last will and testament in manner and form following, that is to say First and principally I commit my Soul to Almighty God, my body to the Earth there to be decently buried according to the discretion of my Executors undernamed.

"All my debts lawfully contracted I desire may first be honestly paid and then what worldly estate it hath pleased God to bless me with I dispose of as follows.

Imprimis. I give and bequeath to my loving son Charles Brent two negroes named Ned and Beck and their future increase, and one equal part of all my household goods and stock to him and his heirs forever.

Item. I give and bequeath to my loving sons William and George Brent six negroes named Sam, Ben, Jenny, Dinah, Lucy and Grace and the future increase to be divided to them when they come to age, and an equal part of of all my household goods and stock each of them and their heirs forever.

Item. I give and bequeath to my loving daughter Catherine Wren, three negroes named Mall, Sarah and Hannah and their future increase and one equal part of all my household goods and stock to her and her heirs forever.

Item. I give and bequeath to my loving daughter Mary Brent two negroes, named George and Winny and their increase and one equal part of all my household goods and stock to her and her heirs forever.

Item. I give and bequeath to my loving daughter Ann Brent two negroes named James and Phillis and their increase and one equal part of all my household goods and stock to her and her heirs forever.

Item. I lend to my dear and loving wife Hannah Brent, six negroes named Tom, Forrester, Dick, Betty, Judah and Sonnah during her life or widowhood and then to be divided between my four children Hugh Brent, William Brent, George Brent and Ann Brent except any of Charles Brent's or Mary Brent's negroes should die before my wife's death or the division then what negroes are wanting to them if it shall so happen shall be made up to them out of those I lent my wife, and the remainder only shall be divided between the above mentioned persons. I also give unto my said wife one equal part of my household goods and stock.

Item. I desire that all my horses or mares I have given to any of my children before this day be reckoned as their part of the Est. and not appraised as part of mine. Also that the crop of corn and tobacco now growing may not be appraised and that my wife and family may have the benefit of it.

It is my will and desire that all my children shall be paid of their fortunes when they arrive at the age of twenty one, or at their marriage if it is previous to that said age.

Item. If either of my children should die before age or marriage as aforesaid, my will is that their respective share or shares shall be equally divided amoung the survivors of them. Lastly I nominate my said dear and loving wife Hannah Brent and appoint her Exectr. of this my last will and testament, and guardian if she remains a widow, and I also appoint my two sons Charles Brent & Hugh Brent to be joined with her when they shall come of age. But should it please God that my saidd wife should die before my said sons shall come of age, or if she shall marry before that time, I nominate my friend and neighbor Mr. Peter Daniel Exer. and guardian to my children in her stead, confiding in his friendship to advise and assist her - and them to the best of his power, and I hereby revoke and disanull all former wills by me made, and declare this writing contained in this and the foregoing page only to be my last will and testament. In Witness thereof I have hereunto set my hand and affixed my seal this 26th day of Aug. in the year of our Lord 1755.

Notes for Tobias Purcell:

or Tobias Pursell.

It is not certain that Tobias is the son of Tobias, but it is probable that he is in this "extended family" and descends from the same Pearsalls of the previous generation.

A Tobias Purcell b 23 Dec 1691 Richmond Co., VA d Feb 1761 Richmond Co. VA married in 1751 Mary Ann Murrow, b 22 Apr 1730 Richmond Co., VA d 1766 (m #2 1761 Richard Shackleford). Obviously a different guy since this man apparently died in 1710. His father was Tobias Purcell b 1760/1 Richmond Co., VA who m 6 Jan 1784 Richmond Co., VA Rebecca Redman, b c 1770 and died bef 1840, before her husband.

Tobias Purcel had a will inventoried in Lancaster Co., VA in 1710. He had a daughter Judith, as shown below, though is is not proven to be the same Judith that married George Brent.

Notes for Benjamin Doggett II:

Thanks to:

http://www.doggettfam.org./index.htm

The order of the children of Benjamin Doggett, shown below, is estimated from the best information available. The only thing that can be stated with some certainty is that, based on the order in which they are named in Benjamin's will, the sons and daughters, respectively, are in the proper chronological order. The name of Benjamin, shown as the eldest child, is inferred. As discussed below, it is clear that a son predeceased the subject, and the obvious missing given name is Benjamin. However, this is only speculation and no proof has been seen.

Benjamin Doggett was the eldest child of the Rev. Benjamin and his wife Jane, and the only child born in England to emigrate to Virginia and survive. His christening is recorded in the parish register of Hadleigh, Suffolk, as occurring 9 Jun 1665, and we can presume therefore that he was born in late May or early June of that year. The Rev. Benjamin was curate of the Hadleigh church, but whether he presided at the baptism of his first child is not indicated in the register.

At the death of Rev. Benjamin in 1682, Benjamin, as the eldest son, received the largest portion, 150 acres, of the 350 acre plantation belonging to his father. The devise was subject to the condition that he not marry until he reached the age of 22 years. We can assume therefore that he did not marry until after June 1687. The 150 acres was the portion of the plantation upon which the dwelling house and other improvements was located, and Benjamin lived on that land until his death in 1723. Benjamin was mentioned in two other instances in his father's will. First, he did not receive any share of proceeds of sale of any cattle belonging to the estate, because "he hath a good stock of his own." At age 16, he had begun to accumulate livestock for his future life as a farmer. Second, he is charged with providing "accomodation" on the plantation for his mother until she remarried, and for his brothers and sister "till they are capable to live on their own." Rev. Benjamin had provided in his will for the land devised to his two younger sons to be "seated" or improved with dwelling houses, and for indentured servants to be purchased to work the land. However, as the children were only about 10, 8, and 6 years of age, it would be some time before they would be able to live on their own. We do not know whether the children did in fact live with Benjamin, or whether they lived with their mother and her husband John Boatman.

Benjamin was married twice. The surname of his first wife is not known, but it would appear that her first name was Betty. In 1694, Benjamin and Betty Doggett were named as devisees in the nuncupative will of Thomas Thompson. Thompson resided on the plantation adjoining that of Benjamin. As there is no other Betty Doggett of the proper age, we must assume that Betty was the first wife of Benjamin. Benjamin and Betty had four sons and five daughters. Two of the daughters, Margaret and Jane, do not appear further in the records.

It is not known when Betty died, as she does not appear further in the records, but he married again, in late 1711, to Mrs. Mary Threlkeld, widow of Christopher Threlkeld of Northumberland County. Northumberland County records contain a court order dated 16 Jan 1711/12, showing that Mary Doggett, executrix of the will of Christopher Threllkell, and her husband Benjamin Doggett appeared in court and presented Threlkeld's will for probate. There are a number of variant spellings of "Threlkeld," including "Thrailkill." Benjamin and Mary had four children, two sons and two daughters. No information about the two daughters has been seen, except that which is contained in Benjamin's will.

Benjamin died in 1723. His will, dated 18 Sep 1723, was recorded in Lancaster County records on 13 Nov 1723, when it was presented for probate by the widow, Mary Doggett. His son John was named as co-executor but does not seem to have been involved in the proate proceedings.The will directed that the estate not be appraised, but an inventory of the personal property was filed with the court on December 3. The estate consisted of those things which would be expected to be owned by a middle class planter of the time. In addition to the expected household goods, harvested crops, and livestock, Benjamin was the owner of one female negro slave named Criss. Criss was bequeathed to the widow for her lifetime and on her death to the four children of Benjamin and Mary.The balance of the personal estate was left to the widow, except for nominal bequests of one shilling given to the children of Benjamin's first marriage and to his grandson James Doggett.

James Doggett, named as grandson of the testator, is the only grandson named in the will and is named first in the list of legatees given a shilling "in full of all claims whatsoever." It is clear from this language that James was the eldest child of a predeceased son (who we have speculated was named "Benjamin,"), as otherwise he would not have had any claim to part of the testator's estate.

Earlier in 1723, the year of his death, Benjamin made a gift to his son Thomas of a negro boy named "Mingo," and a gift to his daughter Elizabeth Frond of a negro boy named "Tom." These two gifts appear to be the only recorded transfers of slaves or other property to the children, and why these two children were singled out does not appear in the county records.

Commencing in the year 1686, Lancaster County records reflect a series of civil actions involving Benjamin, concerning the 350 acres of land owned by the Rev. Benjamin and devised to his three sons by his will. In December 1686, not long after reaching age 21, Benjamin petitioned the court for possession of his part of the land. In June 1687, John Boatman, as husband of the widow, Jane, sued Benjamin for the widow's one-third dower rights in the land. The court rendered a Solomon-like decision and ordered that Benjamin divide the land and that Boatman should then select one of the dividends as his wife's dower. In fact, the land was divided by Mr. George Heale, the County Surveyor, as is indicated by a later proceeding brought in November 1687 by Benjamin against Boatman, in which suit Benjamin asserted that Boatman was attempting to usurp his rights to the land and had made false statments to the court in that regard. The court found that the property had been divided by the Surveyor and that Boatman had made a fair selection of a portion as his wife's dower. The court affirmed Jane's lifetime dower interest in the part selected by her husband, and confirmed his possession of the selection in which the three sons of Rev. Benjamin had a residuary interest. Boatman was ordered to pay one-third of the charges of the Surveyor

Benjamin' differences with John Boatman were not limited to rights under his father's will. In February 1687/8, Benjamin brought an action against Boatman on behalf of his fifteen year old brother Richard for a share of corn and tobacco produced by Richard's labor in the fields, according to an agreement with Boatman. The court agreed with Benjamin and ordered Boatman to deliver the share of crops to Benjamin to provide Richard with clothing "in his present necessity."

Lancaster County records contain a few other references to Benjamin.He was a witness to wills in 1709 and 1717, served on several juries, and was listed in tax rolls beginning in 1688. One further item of interest is the appointment of Benjamin as Constable of Christ Church parish in 1710. Constables were appointed by the county court for each parish in the county to assist the sheriff in enforcing the laws and orders of the court and keeping the peace in the parish.

Mary Doggett, widow of Benjamin, died in 1737/8. Her will, dated 24 Jun 1735, was recorded in Lancaster County records on 10 Mar 1737/8. Named in the will were her three sons by her first marriage: William, Christopher, and James Thrailkill; and her daughter Elizabeth, wife of John Pinckard. Also named were her children by her marrige to Benjamin: Thomas, Reuben and Winifret Doggett. No mention is made of her daughter Mary Doggett, so we can assume that she died some time between 1723 and 1735. Her sons Thomas and Reuben were named as executors. Her stepgrandson, James Doggett, and his wife Charity acted as witnesses to her will.

The Pughs sailed from Milford Haven, Wales on the "Amity" on 16 Oct 1686. A storm blew them off course and they landed on Barbados. In April of 1687 they made it to Philadelphia, PA. Ellis wrote the first book written in Welsh and published in America. It was published by Andrew Bradford, father-in-law of Benjamin Franklin. Evan Pugh (a direct descendant) was Penn State's first President.

In 1674, influenced by the preaching of John ap John, Elis became a Quaker. He was a stone mason by trade. Aprox. 1680 he became a Friends minister. On 16 Oct 1686, Ellis, his wife Sinah and their three young children decided to emigrate to America. Ellis and family left Wales with the Rowland Ellis company, which consisted of about 100 Neighbors of Rowland Ellis. They left Milford Haven, South Wales in a Bristol ship (Amity), arrived in Barbados in March 1687 and continued to Philadelphia arriving the middle of May 1687. They and their children settled in Radnor Township, Chester Co., PA. One source gives Merion, PA as being where Ellis settled first. There were possibly more than one Ellis Pugh to come to America from Wales. Ellis returned once to Wales from 1706 to 1708 to preach. Upon his return to PA, he settled near Gwynedd Meeting House, Philadelphia County. Shortly after his return from Wales 3 of his children died from a disease, which tested and strengthened his faith.

Shortly before his death Ellis wrote a book, "Annerch ir Cymru, op, cit.," which was published in 1721 by Andrew Bradford. In 1732, it was translated into English by Rowland Ellis.

"Notwithstanding, he was not one of the wise of this world, nor had human learning, yet he was made a profitabe instrument to turn divers from vanity, and to exhort and strengthen many in their spiritual journey, in his native land and also in this country...His conduct in his family, in his neighborhood and in the church, was meek loving and peaceable, and to edification; and his conversation innocent, chaste a good report amoung all people generally..." The preceding was from the preface of the book that Ellis Pugh wrote called "Annerch ir Cymru.." ) A salutaion to the Britains to call them from the many things, to the one thing needful.._ published in Philadelphia in 1721. This book was translated by his friend, Rowland Ellis and revised by David Lloyd of Philadelphia. The English version was printed in 1727 by S. Keimer. It is a small octave volume of two hundred twenty-two pages and is very rare.

At this same time Benjamin Franklin worked for S. Keimer as a typesetter. Here are the notes concerning this work in his journals:

Benjamin Franklin notes: may have printed the following undated imprint in 1727: 1. Ellis Pugh. A Salutation to the Britains (Philadelphia: S. Keimer for W. Davies, Bookbinder, 1727). Campbell X71; Evans 2950. http://www.english.udel.edu/lemay/franklin/1727.html

His will was recorded at Philadelphia, signed 29 Nov 1718 and proved 16 Mar 1719. The will mentions his wife Sinah. Sons: Thomas, Job and Ellis. Daughter, Ellin Davies. Son-in-law: Ellis Roberts. Grandaughters: Catharine and Mary Meredith and Sinah Pugh. Executor named was his son Job. Overseers: Sons-in-law Meredith David, David Meredith, John Moore and Robert Jones. Witnesses: John Moore, William Griffith, Cadwalader Jones, Robert Jones.

Joseph Crukshank, A Collection of Memorials concerning Divers deceased, Ministers and others of the People called Quakers, (Philadelphia, MDCCLXXXVII, 1787), 48 - 52.

"An account of Ellis Pugh extracted from testimony of Gwynedd Monthly Meeting concerning him, and also from a short summary of his life, both of which are prefixed to a book he wrote, called A salutation to the Britains, etc.

Ellis Pugh was born in the parish of Dolgelly in the county of Merioneth and dominion of Wales in the Sixth month 1656 (This is old style and would be noted today as August, 1656.) His parents were religious people; but his father died before he was born, and his mother a few days after. In the

days of his youth, when going with the multitude into folly, it pleased God by his judgment, to stand in his way, and caused him to consider the things that belonged to his soul's everlasting peace. And in the eighteenth year of his age the Lord visited him more eminently, kindling a zeal in him to serve his Creator more diligently having been also reached by the testimony of John ap John, one of the people called Quakers.

God who promised to be a father to the fatherless, took care of him; and about the year 1680, gave him part in the ministry of the gospel of Christ, (notwithstanding he was not one of the wise of this world, not had human learning) yet he was made a profitable instrument to tune divers from vanity and to exhort and strengthen many in their spiritual journey, in his native land and in this country where he finished his strife." Page 48 and 49

This work goes on to say that "In the year 1706 he was engaged to visit the inhabitants of his native country, according to what the Lord reveled unto him before he came from thence; which service he performed to the benefit and acceptance of many, and returned to his family in 1708. After he came

home, three of his children, in the flower of their age, who from their youth walked orderly and were hopeful, died within one month; in the time of which trial the Lord was near unto him; he mourned not as one without hope. Strength was given him to bear his affliction." Page 50

What this work says about him as a man is: "He was of meek and quiet spirit, considerate and solid in his judgment, of few words, honest and careful in his calling; and several were induced to speak of the benefit they received by his chaste conversation, and his loving and comfortable expressions while

he was amongst them in their families. He was honourable among his friends and of good report among all people generally, therefore his memory will not soon wear out." Page 50

It continues to say that "Being patient in his tedious indisposition, and contented to wait the Lord's time; he slept with his fathers on the 3rd day of the tenth month 1718." This is old style and would be noted today as 3rd of December 1718." Page 52

1377. Mary Acherson

Notes for Hugh Brent:

Arrived in Virginia, Isle of Wight Co., 20 Jun 1642. One of the headrights of Francis England, settled on land adjoining Capt. William Peirce.

Many have looked for his immediate ancestors without success; there is a high probability that he was closely related to Giles Brent, whose family also resided at Aquia.

Did he have a sister, Elizabeth Brent that married (as his second wife) John Coane by 1663?

Much of the early information on this family is from the book "The Descendants of Hugh Brent" by Chester Horton Brent, 1936. It is supplemented by "Virginia Genealogies" "Charles Brent of Stafford County, Virginia, And Some of His Descendants", compiled by Lucy Jane Brent Palmer.

"Hugh Brent the first came from England in 1644, settled in Lancaster County.

"In the Virginia Land Office at Richmond, there is on record in Book 19, page 628 the following:

"May 6, 1664. 200 acres lying upon Haddamon's Creek and Cantoman Creek in Fleets Bay to Hugh Brent

Page 633 of the same book records:

"Hugh Brent, May 18, 1664 - 200 acres on Fleets Bay butting south on Haddamons Creek."

There is also mention of a grant of land given Hugh Brent for bringing four persons into the Colony.

There is on record in Lancaster the will of said Hugh Brent probated March 13, 1671, in which he names daughters Jean, Elizabeth, Martha and son Hough.

In the name of God Amen this eight day of Jany., 1671: I Hugh Brent of ye Parish of Christ Church in ye County of Lancaster, being sick of body but of sound and perfect memory God be praised therefor, do make constitute and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following viz: imprimis:

Notes for Rev. Benjamin (Rev.) Doggett:

Most of the information on the Doggett Family was compiled by: jim@agenda.net and is located at:

http://www.doggettfam.org/

http://www.doggettfam.org/revben.htm

This is the Rev. Benjamin Doggett that is highlighted in the book:

Descendants of Rev. Benjamin Doggett of Virginia by Blanche Doggett Helin, Redding, CA 1984.

The following is Thanks to: http://www.doggettfam.org./index.htm and http://www.doggettfam.org./revben.htm jim@agenda.net 1998

The baptism of Benjamin Doggett is recorded in the Register of St. Mary-le-Tower Church in Ipswich, Suffolk, as follows: "Beniamine, sonne of William Doggett was Baptised the 28th of October 1636." Benjamin was the youngest of six children of William and Anne Doggett whose baptisms are recorded in the Register, and his father William signed the Register as churchwarden in the year of Benjamin’s birth.

Benjamin’s father was a merchant in Ipswich, Suffolk, engaged in the selling of woolen and other common fabrics, and his mother was the daughter of Geoffrey Langley, a grocer and alderman of Colchester, Essex, a city not far from Ipswich, and his wife, Ann Carter, of Walton-on-the Naze, a nearby Essex seacoast town.

From records of St. John’s College and the University of Cambridge, we know that Benjamin attended a private school in Westminster (now a part of London) with a Mr. Crouch as headmaster. He was admitted to St. John’s College, University of Cambridge, on 27 Jan 1654/5, and matriculated at the University in April 1655. His name is recorded as "Benj. Dodggett" which may indicate the pronunciation of the Doggett surname used by him, although later documents use the spelling "Doggett" or "Dogget," except in one instance where the name is spelled "Daggott." He was admitted to the college as a sizar, which meant that he did not pay tuition for his education, but, in addition to receiving a small stipend from the college, a sizar paid his way by serving as a servant to an upperclassman who, in turn, acted as tutor and surety for the behavior of the sizar. Benjamin’s tutor was William Twyne, son of Anthony Twyne of Walton, Surrey, who was a candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Divinity, which he received in 1660. Rev. Twyne undoubtedly played an important part in the early education of Benjamin as an Anglican minister.

At the end of his first two years of undergraduate study, Benjamin was admitted to membership in St. John's College Corporation as a "scholar." There were three types of members: The head of the college; "Fellows." who were usually graduate students, and "Scholars," who were usually upperclassmen. Benjamin was one of two Scholars admitted from Suffolk at that time. Admission as a Scholar was based on merit and not on financial need. However, all expenses of Scholars and Fellows were paid by the College, and other fringe benefits were frequently provided, such as clothing and choice of living quarters. It is even possible that Benjamin might have had a Sizar assigned to do houskeeping and other menial tasks for him, although we have no evidence that this was the case.

In December 1658, Benjamin received the degree of Bachelor of Arts from the University. Benjamin continued his studies for the ministry at St. John’s and received the degree of Master of Arts on 16 Mar 1661/62. Benjamin affixed his signature to the oath required by the University, which may be the only actual signature of Benjamin presently in existence. This signature clearly spells his surname as "Doggett." The Registers of Seniority recorded in University records show that Benjamin was an average student, ranking slightly below the middle of the graduates for both the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts degrees. Benjamin’s uncles, Thomas and Richard, had attended St. John’s and Emmanuel Colleges, respectively, as pensioners (full tuition payers) and his cousin William, son of Thomas Doggett, had attended Queen’s College at Cambridge as sizar, but it does not appear that his father or any of his brothers attended college, but rather pursued careers as merchants. Benjamin’s mother’s brother, Geoffrey Langley, had received his Master of Arts degree at Christ’s College at Cambridge in 1623, and was rector of the church of Stoke St. Mary, in Ipswich, from 1623 to 1626.

Following receipt of his Master of Arts degree, Benjamin was ordained as an Anglican minister, and was appointed as curate of a church in the small village of Stoke-by-Clare in west Suffolk. There was some question whether the "Stoke, Suffolk" noted in some printed sources, referred to Stoke-by-Clare or to Stoke-by-Nayland, a much larger church. However, the records of St. John's College show that it was Stoke-by-Clare. Benjamin’s cousin, William Doggett, had been appointed as vicar of that church in 1661, and was therefore entitled to receive the "living" from the parish, but apparently did not desire to act as the resident minister. When Benjamin was ordained in 1662, William then apparently arranged for Benjamin to act as curate in his stead. Benjamin did not stay long in Stoke-by-Clare, and by 1664 was acting as curate and schoomaster of the much larger church in Hadleigh, Suffolk, where he continued as minister until emigrating to Virginia in 1669.

On 21 Sep 1664, the Rev. Benjamin was married in Hadleigh to a young widow, Jane Garrard. The identity of Jane’s first husband and parents are uncertain, although the death of a Charles Garrard is recorded in the Hadleigh parish register as occurring 10 Apr 1664. Benjamin’s first child, his son Benjamin, was born in Hadleigh the following year, in 1665. Three more children were born in Hadleigh, according to entries in the parish register. These were his daughter Jane, born in 1667, his son William, baptised 19 Nov 1668, and his son John, baptised 3 Mar 1669/70. Of these four children, William died as an infant, as his burial is recorded in the parish register on 24 Nov 1668.

Sometime before January 1669/70, Benjamin left Hadleigh and emigrated to the colony of Virginia. He had received the appointment of the Bishop of London to be the minister of Trinity parish in Lancaster County. We do not know the reason for his decision to emigrate, but things were not easy for the clergy in England at that time, following the rule of Cromwell and the restoration of the monarchy. Benjamin did not have permanent tenure at Hadleigh, but was only a curate for the Dean of Bocking, who had the living as rector of the parish.

From a power of attorney recorded in Lancaster County records, we know that Benjamin’s brother, Richard, an Ipswich merchant, traded with Lancaster County merchants, and had perhaps learned from Col. William Ball, Col. John Carter, or others, that there was an opening for a minister in that county, and made Benjamin aware of the opportunity. In any event, the decision was made. It appears that Benjamin’s wife Jane did not accompany him to America, but came later, as she was expecting son John who was born in England in March 1669/70. We do know from Benjamin’s will that for reasons unknown his daughter Jane was left behind in England, perhaps for medical reasons. Although his son John predeceased the Rev. Benjamin, it seems probable that he died in Virginia, as his death is not recorded in the Hadleigh parish register. We are certain only that his wife and son Benjamin emigrated to Virginia.

Soon after his arrival in Lancaster County and commencement of his ministry at Christ Church, the Rev. Benjamin founded a second church in the western part of the county which was named St. Mary’s White Chapel Church, and he served as minister of both churches. We assume that he preached in the two churches on alternate weeks and that vestrymen acted as lay readers in his absence. Because the churches in Virginia were under the jurisdiction of the Bishop of London, the episcopal authority was not as strong as in England, and the vestries exercised more power and control over the clergy. As a minister only obtained permanent tenure by recommendation of the vestry and appointment of the governor, the vestry could retain control by failing to present the minister for appointment. However, Benjamin apparently made a good impression on the vestry and the congregations, as in 1670 he was presented to the governor of the colony for appointment as minister of the two churches of Trinity Parish. Soon thereafter the parish was divided into two separate parishes of Christ Church and St. Mary’s Whitechapel, with Benjamin as minister of both parishes. Some time after Benjamin’s death, the two original wooden churches were torn down and new brick churches were erected. Much of the cost of the new Christ Church building was contributed by the very wealthy Carter family, and the Ball family, including George Washington’s grandfather, were the leading members of the St. Mary’s Whitechapel congregation.

Three more children were born to Benjamin and Jane in Virginia. The parish register of Christ Church has been lost, so we do not know the exact dates of the births of the children. We believe that their son Richard was born about 1672 and that their daughter Anne was born about 1674. The youngest child, William, was born about 1676. As mentioned, the son John, born in England, predeceased Benjamin, but as his death is not recorded in the Hadleigh parish register, he may have accompanied his parents to Virginia and died there.

In 1680, Benjamin purchased a 350 acre plantation from George Flowers, with a mortgage to Robert Griggs. In addition to his income, paid in tobacco, from the two parishes, Benjamin farmed this land and other land in Christ Church parish, using hired or indentured servants, raising tobacco and corn, along with cattle and pigs.

Benjamin died in Lancaster County in 1682 or 1683, leaving a will of record dated 14 Mar 1681/2. The will was probated in Lancaster County in January 1682/3. The will divides the 350 acre plantation between his three sons, Benjamin, Richard and William, with Benjamin receiving 150 acres and the two younger sons receiving 100 acres each. His wife Jane was given the use of the land until remarriage. His daughter Anne was given personal property, to be given in two equal annual installments, provided she did not marry before reaching age 18. As she had to be nearly 18 at the time the will was drawn, this would not seem to have been a serious problem for her.

The reference in the will to Benjamin’s daughter Jane is intriguing. "I give unto my daughter Jane Doggett in England twenty shillings and no more because she hath been detained from me and is surely provided for." We can speculate from this that Benjamin was not happy with the fact that Jane had not come to America with the family. Perhaps she had physical or mental infirmities that made it unwise for her to attempt to make the arduous trip to America, and she may have been kept by Benjamin’s wife’s family or may have been institutionalized.

Benjamin also provided in his will for payment of his debts to George Flowers and to Robert Griggs, primarily out of tobacco, but also out of the sale of planks sawed out of timber on the plantation, and of the sale of pipe staves. Pipe staves were used to make pipes or casks of wood in which tobacco was shipped to England, and may have been hewn from timber on Benjamin’s plantation.

Benjamin had accumulated a library for use in performing his ministerial duties, and otherwise. Apparently there was not a good market for these books in Virginia, and Benjamin directed that the books be appraised, that a "great chest" be bought, and the books be packed up and sent to England to be sold. The money realized from the sale was to be used to help pay the debt to Robert Griggs, and if there was any surplus, the money was to be used by his widow to buy a mourning ring with the inscription "Follow Me." The purchase of mourning rings bearing memorial inscriptions was a popular custom at the time, and the rings could be quite valuable. The two executors were given 20 shillings to purchase mourning rings also.

Benjamin directed that he be buried beneath the chancel in St. Mary’s Whitechapel church. As it is believed that the present church was built a hundred yards or so from the original location, we do not know whether his remains were reinterred when the new church was built, but we would hope that this was the case.

An inventory and appraisal of the Rev. Benjamin’s estate was made the following September and recorded in Lancaster County records. It is interesting that the appraisal was not made by the appraisers named in the will but by four neighbors and substantial citizens: Nicholas George, Stephen Chilton, Thomas Tomson, and John Davis. The inventory of the personal property had an appraised value of 11,610 pounds of tobacco (not including the cattle, which for some unexplained reason were not appraised), and consisted primarily of household goods of little value. The most valuable items listed were "one Trunck of Bookes," appraised at 2000 pounds of tobacco, and three horses, appraised at 2700 pounds of tobacco. The inventory does not reflect ownership of any slaves, but does include two indentured servants, a man having 27 days to serve and a woman having two months to serve.

County records of Lancaster County and adjoining Northumberland County contain numerous documents pertaining to the Rev. Benjamin. The earliest document, a power of attorney witnessed by Benjamin, is dated 28 Jan 1669/70 and was recorded in Lancaster County on 1 February. This document places Benjamin's emigration to Virginia at some time prior to 28 January. Many of the other recorded documents involve suits on notes, usually payable in tobacco, on behalf of or against Benjamin. Some of the suits were decided in favor of him and some against him. One suit raises an interesting question for which we do not have an answer. In November 1677, an action was commenced by Capt. Richard Taylor, attorney of Richard Doggett, against Benjamin Doggett. We must assume that the Richard Doggett in question was the brother of Benjamin in England. We do not know whether this was a "friendly" suit or whether real differences existed between the brothers.

In many of the documents of record, Benjamin is referred to by the honorific title of "Mr." The use of that title was restricted to members of the gentry who did not use their military ranks, who were not members of the knighthood, or who were entitled to bear coats of arms and used the designation "Esq." or "Armiger." It was essentially equivalent to the designation "gentleman." Free citizens of somewhat lesser social standing were usually referred to by their occupations, such as "planter," "merchant," "carpenter," and the like. Although Benjamin's very modest economic circumstances would not place him in the gentry class, his profession and education entitled him to be called "Mr. Doggett." The use of that honorific title was not used by the person himself, but by third persons. In doucments executed by Benjamin, such as his will, he refers to himself simply as "minister."

One type of offense which frequently came to the attention of the justices of the County Court, acting in their capacities as criminal magistrates, was the matter of verbal or physical abuse of a citizen, and particularly abuse of a member of the gentry by a person of lesser social standing. Rev. Benjamin was the victim in three cases of record in Lancaster County. The first, in September 1672, is somewhat unusual. In that case, a man named William Hughs, who seems to have been an indentured servant of Mr. Edward Carter, took a "servant maid" belonging to Benjamin from Benjamin's house. It does not appear that the lady involved objected to being "taken," and it would seem that she became part of Carter's household, probably as the wife of Hughs. In any event, Benjamin sued Hughs and, perhaps as the result of a settlement with Carter, he was awarded judgment for 2800 lbs. of tobacco, to be paid by Carter and Hughs. This would indicate that Carter probably took over the indenture for the "servant maid" and paid Benjamin the value of the contract. In the same proceeding, Hughs was found guilty of abusing Benjamin "by words." According to the court order, Hughes apologized to Benjamin and asked his forgiveness. Benjamin accepted the apology and withdrew his complaint but Hughes was ordered to pay costs.

The second case was in September 1684, when the court found that one Stephen Wills "did abuse Benjamin Doggett, minister." Wills was sentenced to be placed in the stocks until he was sober and then to receive 30 lashes.

The third case, in 1682, involved one Thomas Herbert, an indentured servant of Benjamin. Herbert was convicted of "lifting up his hande against his saide Master," and was ordered "for his contempt forthwith to receive twenty Lashes on his bare backe well laide on, the Sheriff to see the same executed." Offenses by indentured servants against their gentlemen masters were not tolerated and were punished severely by the justices. Whether Herbert was the "manservant having 27 days to serve" listed in the inventory of Benjamin's probate estate is uncertain, but it may well be the case.

Lancaster County records also include two petitions by Benjamin, one in 1672/3 and the other in 1680, for permission to bring an Indian into his household. Permission was granted in each case, on condition that a bond be posted guaranteeing the behavior of the native. We do not know the circumstances involved, but we can assume that furnishing labor for the plantation was involved, and perhaps the Rev. Benjamin had found natives interested in being taught the Christian faith.

Soon after the death of the Rev. Benjamin, his widow, Jane, married for the third time. Her new husband was John Boatman. John was apparently not popular with his stepchildren, and when young Benjamin became of age he sued Boatman in county court for taking advantage of Richard by putting him to work in the fields and not providing adequate support for him. The court ordered an accounting to be made by Boatman and restitution to be made to him. We can imagine that relations continued to be strained, as county court records reflect a series of lawsuits between Boatman and the children over the land devised to the three sons.

1447. Ursula <Widow> Browne, died Abt. 1660 in Westmoreland Co., VA.

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 Henry Peyton I:

The Peyton Family / Virginia Genealogies is the source of much of this information.

The identified father of this Henry Peyton is speculative - and the dates of the most commonly shown couple are too far apart, unless wildly wrong dates are used. This Henry Peyton "is known to be of the Peytons of Iselham"

From: The Peytons of Virginia

"Henry Peyton was a very interesting person, for he made his way to considerable eminence from a modest start entirely on his own ability. He came up to London from Gloucester early in the reign of James I as a "servant" or clerk to Sir Thomas Overbury, a gentleman who had a rapid rise and a rapid fall at the Court of King James. Henry Peyton was admitted to Lincoln's Inn and then became a clerk and finally an Examiner of the High Court of Chancery. In 1633 he asked Sir Edward Peyton of Isleham, who was then the head of the family, for authorization to bear the Peyton Arms, as one "branched out from his family" (see below). By the time of his death in 1656, Henry had amassed a considerable fortune and had a fine residence in Chancery Lane in London. He and his sons sided with the Royalists in the Civil War [10, pp.14-15]

"Four of Henry's sons, Valentine, Lawrence, Henry, and John, came to Virginia as young men and held land in Westmoreland County. Possibly a fifth son Charles was also in Stafford County, Virginia for a time. After the English Restoration, Charles returned to England.

"In his will, Henry of Lincoln's Inn refers to his brother "Master William", and to two children of his brother Edmund; he makes provision for those of his children for whom he had not otherwise, and even for his wife's sister. He gives no further identity to his family connections. Attention has been called to his recognition by his kinsman, Sir Edward Peyton, Bart., and of his grant of the right to use the Peyton arms, "with a difference," and of the confirmation of this right by "Sir John Borough, Garter". Hayden first expresses the speculation that this Henry Peyton was likewise a descendant of Rev. Thomas Peyton, son of Thomas Peyton, son of Christopher Peyton, son of Francis Peyton, who was the son of Sir Thomas Peyton and his second wife, Margaret Francis (Carney). Rev. Thomas Peyton went to County Mayo, Ireland prior to 1623 and became the progenitor of the Peytons of Driney House and Leheen, County Letrim, Ireland. Later Hayden indicates that Henry may have been a nephew of Sir Edward Peyton; but he seems to have been born too early to have been Sir Edward's nephew. Dates, however, fit in with being a descendant of Sir John Peyton, son of Sir Robert Peyton and Elizabeth Clere, who became the progenitor of the Peytons of Knowlton and Doddington. That Sir John married Dorothy Tyndall, daughter of Sir Robert Tyndall; this became a arge and prominent branch of the Peyton family. The Virginia family genealogical charts attempt to identify Henry Peyton of "Lincoln's Inn" as Henry Peyton, son of Christopher Peyton, son of Francis Peyton, who was the son of Sir Thomas Peyton and his second wife, Margaret Francis (Carney). The known records do not show that this Henry Peyton had either brothers or sons named Henry, Edmund, or William. Nor can he be identified with Sir Henry Peyton, a member of the Virginia Company of London in 1610, son of Thomas Peyton, who was a brother of above, because aside from a disparity of dates Sir Henry Peyton died without issue. Hence the nearest known connection of Henry Peyton of "Lincoln's Inn" is as a near kinsman of the direct line of Sir Edward Peyton. [5, p.13]

Notes for Katherine Clifton:

Often reported as Katherine Bateman; that is an error - her sister married a Bateman.

Henry Peyton married Katherine Clifton, dau of William Clifton of Newlands, Surrey. Their marriage record is recorded in All Hallows the Less Church, and several of their children were christened there. The others were christened at St. Dunstan's in the West.

Henry Peyton probated his father in law's will, and William Clifiton names Henry as his son in law, husband of his dau Katherine.

Notes for Ann <Unknown>:

Ann married 1st Martin Scarlett

King George County, Virginia Deed Book 2 ; page 17-20

George Mason of Stafford County by deeds 28 Mar 1692 and by said Mason sold unto Martin Scarlett by deed 1 May 1694 and said Martin Scarlet devised by his last will bearing date 5 Jan 1705/6 unto William SMITH son of Edward SMITH and Lettice SMITH and in case said William SMITH before he attained twenty one years of age to the heirs of Lettice SMITH' s for ever, who is the Scarlett Hancock land bounded upon the riever side .. corner tree of Richard Shipway into woods on west side a path leading to Parson Waughs land of John Fossaker

Martin Scarlett: In his will, which has survived among the Tayloe Papers at the Virginia Historical Society, he devises his land to his wife, Ann Scarlett, for life and then to Capt. Thomas Ousley. At the time, William Harris furnished a deposition to the court in support of the sale of her land to Thomas Owsley. It would appear the deed was not recorded until three years later based upon the following court entry of 15 March 1699/1700: "The Deposition of William Harris aged 64 or thereabouts sworn & examined saith that he saw Mrs. Ann Scarlet some time since come into Court with a deed of Sale in her hand and delivered the same to the Court & Capt. Thomas Awsley acknowledged the same to her as his Act & deed within the space of half an hour or thereabouts after she delivered the last will of Capt. Scarlet into Court which was read and probate thereof was granted her this Deponent testifies being at Court to witness the will and further saith not." (Stafford Co. Record Book, 1699-1709, p. 13)

2752. [Unknown 2] Brent He was the son of 5504. [Unknown 1] Brent.

Notes for [Unknown 2] Brent:

Two generations of "missing" ancestors are inserted to indicate the family from England which is also ancestor to Giles Brent and which has a close relationship to the Pearshall / Purcell family, which later intermarried with descendants of Hugh Brent. While not proven to be a great-grandson Richard Brent and Mary Huggerford, Giles Brent was their grandson and this approximate placement allows connection to some of the ancient ancestors from England.

Child of [Unknown 2] Brent is:

1376 i. Hugh Brent, born Abt. 1630 in England; died 1671 in Lancaster Co., VA; married Mary Acherson Abt. 1656 in Lancaster Co., VA.

 

2760. Samuel Pearsall Purcell, born Abt. 1620 in London, Middlesex, England; died 1643 in Isle of Wight Co., VA. He was the son of 5520. Thomas Pearsall and 5521. Mary Brent.

Notes for Samuel Pearsall Purcell:

Samuel Purcell is likely an ancestor of TWO of my lines, one maternal, one paternal. This is the closest known probable common ancestor of my parents.

http://www.teleport.com/~grafe/Pearsalls/Tobacco.html

"Samuel Pearsall came to Maryland in 1635 with Margaret Brent and her brothers. In 1639, the other brothers left for Long, Island, New Netherlands to remove the tobacco trade in the Virginia and Maryland sites to the new location. The founding of the Swedish colony on the Delaware peninsula revived the trade at the remaining site on Kent Island and the tobacco trade with Sweden became profitable for Thomas Pearsall the elder and his youngest son Samuel and Brents at Kent Island."

Children of Samuel Pearsall Purcell are:

i. John Pearsall, born Abt. 1638; married Mary Stevens Bef. 15 Jul 1660 in Talbot County, MD.

ii. Arthur Purcell, born Abt. 1640; died Bef. 27 May 1729 in Isle of Wight Co., VA; married (1) Mary Joyner Abt. 1670; born Bef. 1655; married (2) Anne Cooke Aft. 1685.

Notes for Arthur Purcell:

Thanks to Gayle Erickson:

On August 9, 1694, Arthur Purcell (along with William Godwin) was instructed to inventory the estate of Thomas Joyner. In December of that same year, a suit filed by Lt. Col. Samuel Bridger, administrator of the Joseph Woory estate, for non-payment of debt against Arthur Purcell was dismissed. Two months later, Lt. Col. Bridger and Arthur Purcell were again tied up in litigation. Bridger sued Arthur for 1415 pounds of tobacco. Arthur counter-sued for 1200 pounds of tobacco, claiming that Bridger had not paid him for building a house. The case was tied up for quite some time.

In April of 1699, Arthur Purcell bought 1,400 acres on Blackwater Swamp from Thomas Joyner's estate. In his will, Arthur gave his son, Arthur, the land on Blackwater Swamp, and to his son, Thomas, the land bought from the Joyner estate. The will also named his daughter, Isabella, and his "loving wife", Mary. His estate was not appraised until August of 1729.

Arthur Pearsall was born about 1640. He married about 1670 Mary who was probably a daughter of Thomas Joyner. Arthur's property and Thomas Joyner's adjoined. Arthur Pursell one of the appraisers of Thomas Joyner's estate (Blanche Adams Chapman, Wills and Administrations of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, 1647-1800, published 1938, p. 6, Deed Book 1, p. 176. Joyner, Thomas: Appraisers of estate, Arthur Pursell, Will Goodwin, Alek Matthews, Will Bradshaw. October 6, 1695.) Thomas Joyner left a numcupative will in 1695; however efforts to secure copy have not been successful. Arthur Pursell named his second son, Thomas.

Notes for George Wale:

George's brother Edward Wale made oath to the inventory of George's will, recorded 9 Sep 1674.

Note: George Wale of Lancaster Co., VA, born before 1730, is presumed to be a descendant of this man, but how is not known. What is known is that the Brent and Lawson family are both related to both men.

Radwinter, Essex, England is listed as a possible birth place. Was his father Thomas Wale?

"Friendship. [a property] Patented on 3 July 1665 to George Wale for 100 acres in Dublin, Election district 4. [Somerset Co., MD] 16 October 1671 George Wale conveyed to brother Edward Wale his lands. 8 Dec 1678 Edward Wale and wife Elizabeth Wale sold to Thomas Newbold 100 acres." "100 a. on the north side Pocomoke at Acquintica.

Torrence in Somerset on The Eastern Shore of Maryland states that Edward Wale was from Accomack County, Virginia and arrived in Maryland ca 1668. In Cavaliers and Pioneers, patent Book No. 4 there is an Edward Wale transported by an Edward Williams on the 5 June 1658 who received 500 acres in Potomeck freshes above Puscatoway adj. his own land for trans. of 10 persons. In patent Book No. 5 Edward Whally was transported 22 June 1664 ( p.183) to Accomack Co., by Col Edmund Scarburgh who received 3000 acres on this date for transportation of threescore persons. On 10 Sept. 1664, Scarburgh received another 200 acres for tranportation of 40 persons, among them being Lewis Whaly. Torrence states that this is the name of the wife of George Wale who sold or gave land to Edward Wale in Somerset County later. There are several records where a George Whale is transported in Cavaliers and Pioneers.

In Lancaster County, Virginia there is a record of a deed from Ffrancys Morryson, Esg to Mr. George Wale for 1400 acres bounding upon land of Gerayse Dodson, dated at James City Co.10 Oct. 1662. Dodson had previously sold for 40 lbs. sterling to be paid in London by Mr. Geo Wale or his assigne to Coll. Will Clayborn, according to tenor of three bills of exchange signed by Mr. Willm. Strachey and directed to Mr. Nicholas Trott at Vine Court in Bishops Gate Street as also the value of 10 lbs sterling, etc. Refers to the said Gervayse Dodson of Northumberland County , and dated 20 Dec. 1658. Dodson again assigns to Mr. George Wale a survey of 500 acres which joins a seat of 600 acres " due me by patent & by patent by me sold to the sd Mr. George Wale lying in Lancaster Co. on the s. side of Corotoman Creek near Wiccocomoco Indian Town which survey of 500 acres is entered with rights in the office with Mr. Tho. Brerton". Dated 20 Dec. 1658 and again in May of 1659 Dodson and wife, Isbell, sold Wale 600 more acreage dated 25 May 1658 and again in July 1659 500 more acres.

After he bought the land from Ffrancys Morrysons ,Geo Wale sold part of it to Tho. Hains in deed which says" that Lewys my wife, " consents to sale which was dated 11 Jan. 1664/5 signed by Geo Wale, Lewys Wale wit: Robt Jones, Hen Houghton, Recorded 1st June 1665.

Haines signed Geo Wale, Lewys Wale. Wit: Thos Jenner, Rob Huff (HULL?) and recorded 10 May 1665.( All of the above from Beverly Fleet, Genealogical. Pub. Co.

There was a George Wale, Jr. who chose Thos. Haines as guardian.

Abstracts Vol. I, Lancaster County, Record Book No. 2 1627-1640.) There are also records in this reference that state that George Wale married Mary Jones, the daughter of Robert Jones, by 1678. There are many Wale, Whaley descendants in Lancaster County, Virginia records later including one William who served in the Revolution, but who died and estate records are in Lancaster County, Va.

Sometime after 1630 he took up permanent residence in Isle of Wight, Virginia, acquiring land there and in Maryland (St. Michael's Hundred, St. Mary's.) He died in Virginia in 1642, and Mark Pheypo became administrator of his estate in Maryland.

Thomas Pearsall married circa 1607 in London Mary Brent, daughter of William Brent, of Gloucestershire and London, England.

"In 1638, the last tobacco monopoly (the Dutch West Indies Company) was abolished. Open trade commenced and the Dutch-Englishmen left Virginia for Long Island. Thomas Pearsall kept his Virginia Home. His son Samuel took charge of the Kent Island business. Thomas Pearsall the younger, Nicholas, Henry and George moved to Long Island. (Pearsall p.983) The Pearsall brothers in Long Island were aided by their former Jailer (under Governor Wouter Van Twiller) and by the son of the former Governor Jorrison who was a family friend.

"Thomas Pearsall, Sr. Settled in St. Michael's Hundred, Maryland in 1642. He paid twenty three ponds of tobacco as property tax that year. (Archives of Maryland, page 146) The capitol of Maryland at this time was St. Mary's which was also located in St. Michael's Hundred. Thomas Pearsall died there in 1642." (Pearsalls 985)

5568. <Unknown> Wale

Notes for <Unknown> Wale:

Old Somerset of the Eastern Shore of Maryland

Wale (also Whale and, later, Whaley). Edward Wale was in the Pocomoke section when Somerset was created August, 1666. He first owned and lived on lands ("Aquintica" and "Springfield") on Pocomoke River which had been conveyed to him by George Wale and Lewis, his wife. These lands Edward Wale sold to Thomas Newbold and removed about 1678 to the Sinepuxent section on the seaboard side. Edward Wale (d. 1718), m. January 29, 1668/9, Elizabeth Ratcliff (sister of Charles Ratcliff, of Somerset County), and had issue: (1) John, 1669; (2) Sarah, 1671; (3) Charles, 1673; (4) George, 1678; (5) Elizabeth, 1677; m. William Turvile (or Turvill); (6) Bridget, 1681; m. Ebenezer Franklin; (7) William, 1683; (8) Nathaniel, 1686; (9) Rachel, 1688; (10) Elias, 1690-1720) (IKL; O 5, p. 358; O 18, p. 18; Md. Cal. Wills, IV, p. 165, and V, p. 44). The Wale, or Whaley, family, of Somerset County, for many years made claim (traditionally) to descent from the celebrated Edward Whalley, "the Regicide," but finally abandoned the claim. In Penna. Mag. of Hist. and Biog., IV, p. 258, appears a letter by Dr. Robert P. Robins, May 24, 1880, in which the evidence against this claim is well summed up.

Note: Thomas Wale of Dutton-Bassett, Leicestershire, England and/or Chelmsford, Essex, England, born abt 1529 and the father of Joanna Wale who married Thomas Almy of St. David, Barton, Somersetshire, England is also the ancestor of this file's compiler, and may be related to this Wale family.

With the decline of fuedalism, the family became active in commerce and finance.

He also held the King's Patent granting a monopoly of the tobacco trade in Virginia to him and his associates. With his family and friends, Edmond became a heavy contributor to the second Virginia Company in 1609. "The General Historie of Virginia, New England and the Summer Isles" by Captain John Smith, published in 1634, contains a list of names "Of the Adventurers for Virginia." This list includes the names Edmond Pearsall and Timothy Bathurst, a member of his wife's family. Ironically, the record reports that Edmond Pearsall died in a debtor's proson.

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."

21645. Margaret Dixon, born Abt. 1497.

Notes for William Sandys:

He supported Henry VIII in his policy toward the religious orders and was made Receiver General for the Liberties of Furnace. He lived in the parish of Hawkshead, Furnace Fells, on the edge of Esthwaite Water in the celebrated Lake District of England, where he owned among other estates, Esthwaite Hall, his principal residence, and Graythwaite Hall. Major George Owen Sandys, the owner of Graythwaite Hall (1920), a lineal descendant of Anthony Sandys, a younger brother of the Archbishop, indicated that Graythwaite Hall was built in the reign of Edward IV (1461-1483), and has since then been continuously occupied by the Sandys family. The house is now Elizabethan in style but has been twice partly rebuilt and refaced.

His death date is supported by a suit filed in the Duchy Court of Lancaster at the Easter term, 1549, against William and Christopher Sandys, sons of William Sandys, deceased, in regard to certain iron smithies in Furnace Fells, granted 15 November 1537, by Henry VIII, jointly to William Sandys, the father, and a certain William Sawrey (Lancashire and Cheshire Record Society, xi; p. 88). As William Sandys's will is dated 23 April, 1546, his death therefore took place between this date and Easter 1549. The date 1438 carved over the entrance to the Sandys Choir or Chapel in Hawkshead Church doubtless refers to the year of his death. The date of death of his wife Margaret who was living when he made his will is not known.

William Sandys and his wife Margaret "lie entombed in the Sandys Choir in the church of St. Michael's, at Hawkshead, under a table monument upon which is expressed in alto relievo the effigies in full proportion of the said William and Margaret, with their hands raised in a praying position. At the head and on the side are the Sandys arms between the initials E. S. showing a crescent for distinction." The letters "E. S." are the initials of the Archbishop, by whom the monument was erected.

The will of William Sandys is not now to be found on record either in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, or in the local Archdeaconry Probate Court of Richmond, Yorkshire. West, however, quotes extensively from a copy examined by him and then (about 1774) preserved by the Sandys family of Graythwaite Hall. It was dated 23 April, 1546, but the date of probate is not given. He leaves his "capital messuage Esthwaite Water" (Esthwaite Hall) to his son William; and Graythwaite (Hall) to his son Christopher, with reversion in case of the latter's death to his son Myles. He leaves no land to his son Edwin, whom he refers to as being then Vicar of Haversham, and after speaking of him most affectionately requests "that he will do the best he can to see my last will and testament fulfilled, and good rule and loving order be had among his mother, brethren, and sisters". He also names his other children Anthony and Ane, and his grandson Roger, son of his son George, then deceased.

Notes for Archbishop Edwin Sandys:

The Most Reverend Edwin Sandys Archbishop of York(114) (336) was born about 1516 in probably Hawkshead, Furness Fells, Lancashire. He died in 1588. The Most Reverend Edwin Sandys, Archbishop of York, was probably educated at Furness Abbey, where the martyr John Bland is said to have been one of his teachers. He afterwards went to St. John's College at Cambridge, receiving an A.B. in 1539, and M.A. in 1541, a B.D. in 1547, and a D.D. in 1549.

He held a number of minor ecclesiastical offices, becoming canon of Peterborough in 1549. He also served as Master of Catherine Hall from 1547. In 1553 he was Vice Chancellor of Cambridge University and when the Duke of Northumberland came to Cambridge to gain support for denying the throne to the Catholic Mary Tudor, Sandys preached a sermon before him, upholding the claims of Lady Jane Grey to the throne. The movement quickly collapsed, and Northumberland ordered Sandys to proclaim Queen Mary, which he did in the marketplace. (At the same time, he made the safe prophecy that Northumberland would not go unpunished; he didn't: he was beheaded.)

Sandys resigned as vice chancellor and was brought to London, where he was imprisoned in the Tower and later Marshalsea prison, from which he managed with the help of Sir Thomas Holcraft to escape and make his way to the continent. He lived abroad, until the end of Queen Mary's reign in 1558, and his first wife and his son died in that exile.

Edwin Sandys returned to England shortly after Queen Elizabeth I came to the throne and quickly received preferment. He was named to several commissions dealing with the liturgy and other ecclesiastical matters. On an ecclesiastical visitation of the North of England, he preached a sermon on Queen Elizabeth that was highly flattering and he was offered the see of Carlisle. He refused it, however, and was rewarded with Worcester instead.

Sandys was a quarrelsome man, often involved in squabbles both high and low, and one contemporary author described his "Germanical nature." The Dictionary of National Biography describes him as "an obstinate and conscientious puritan."

His learning, however, was not in doubt. In 1567 he was one of the translators of the so-called Bishop's Bible. In 1570 he was transferred to the See of London. In 1572 he helped in another translation of the Bible and was responsible for the Books of Hosea, Joel, and Amos through Malachi.

On Mar 8 1576, Sandys was translated to the Archbishopric of York. There, again, his quarrels were many in a time of gathering religious disputes. He died on Jul 10 1588 and was buried in Southwell Minster, where his tomb is still to be found. He endowed a grammar school in his native Hawkswood.

His biography is in the Dictionary of National Biography. He was married to Cecily Wilford in 1560.

The will of Edwin Sandys, archbishop of York, from which the following abstract is taken, was dated; 1 August 1587, and was probated, 27 May 1590, in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury (Drury,30). It will be noted that the testator signs himself "Sandes."

The will of Edwyne Sandes, minister of God's Holy Word, Archbishop of York, dated 1st August 1587.

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....

Malcolm Fleming was born about 1494. Malcolm was served heir to his father in the lands of Castlerakine and others, February 21, 1524-25. On January 16, 1545, he founded the Collegiate Church of Biggar - for the safety of the souls of King James V , the Cardinal Legate and his own soul and Joan Stewart his wife, sister to the King. He had married January 27, 1524, Janet Stewart, natural daughter of King James IV by Isabel Stewart, Countess of Bothwell, daughter of James, third Earl of Buchan. Malcolm died September 10, 1547. Janet died after 1560 and before 1564. Malcolm third Lord Fleming, was the son of John Fleming, second Lord Fleming and Eupheme Drummond.

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.

He died in Paris, France, on 15 Dec 1558 following a food poisoning in Dieppe on 28 Nov, which killed three in a party of royal deputies that same night. They had refused to allow the Dauphin to be crowned in Scottish Regalia, leaving the suspicion that the deaths were deliberate.

23143. Lilias Ruthven, born Abt. 1520; died 1579. She was the daughter of 46286. William Ruthven and 46287. Janet Haliburton.

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."

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."

Following a review of records, Noel Currer-Briggs tenatively assigned Thomas as a son of Francis Peyton and Elizabeth Brooke. Based on succeeding wills and baptismal records ...(William Kennedy Rutherford and Anna Clay Zimmerman Rutherford) ... are of the opinion that the connecting link was the Thomas Peyton who died testate in 1555. This is further substantiated by the ... confirmation of Sir Edward Peyton, Knt. (1578-1657), who in 1633 allowed his "kinsman who had branched out of his family [Isleham] his arms with a difference in the bordure."

Notes for John Fleming:

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

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.

46275. Agnes Stewart, born Abt. 1485; died Feb 1556/57. She was the daughter of 92550. Sir James Stewart and 92551. 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."

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."

v. Margaret Drummond, born Abt. 1460; died Apr 1502; met James IV King of Scotland Bef. 1497; born 17 May 1473 in Stirling Castle, Scotland; died 09 Sep 1513 in Battle of Flodden Field, Northumbria, England.

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 ..."

92548. 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 185096. James II King of Scotland and 185097. Marie van Egmond. He married 92549. Margarethe Oldenburg of Denmark 13 Jul 1469 in Holyrood, Edinburgh, Scotland.

92549. Margarethe Oldenburg of Denmark, born 23 Jun 1456; died 14 Jul 1486 in Stirling. She was the daughter of 185098. Christian I Oldenburg King of Denmark and 185099. 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."

Notes for Margaret Gray:

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."

Notes for Earl Patrick Hepburn:

3rd Lord Hailes; 1st Earl of Bothwell; September 10, 1488, appointed Great Admiral of Scotland

Patrick Hepburne, of Dunsyre, knight, was Sheriff of Berwick on 15th June 1480. He succeeded his grandfather as 2nd Lord Hailes shortly after December 1482. 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.

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.

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)

On the forfeiture of the notorious Earl of Bothwell, Crichton fell to the Crown and was granted to Francis Stewart, Earl of Bothwell, who was a thorn in the side of his kinsman, King James VI. It has since passed through the hands of several proprietors."

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.

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."

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 is believed to have intrigued with the widowed Queen Marie of Gueldres, a young and beautiful woman. 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."

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.

Source: Leo van de Pas

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.

Count of Geneva

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."

185211. 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 185096. James II King of Scotland and 185097. 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.

The Great Historic Families of Scotland, James Taylor.

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 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 Elizabeth Lindsay:

Said to be "Elizabeth Lyndsay, daughter of Alexander, first Earl of Crawford." She was the brother of an Alexander and the son of David, third Earl.

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."

Children of William Douglas and Margaret Hay are:

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."

Notes for James Forbes:

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."

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.

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.

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.

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

 

740356. 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 1480712. James Douglas and 1480713. <Concubines>. He married 740357. Joan of Strathearn Bef. 1362 in Scotland.

740357. Joan of Strathearn, born Bef. 1347; died Bet. 1408 - Aug 1409 in of Hermiston, Roxburghshire, Scotland. She was the daughter of 1480714. Malise of Strathearn and 1480715. 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"

 

740358. Henry St. Clair, born Abt. 1369 in Rosslyn, Scotland; died 01 Feb 1420/21. He was the son of 1480716. Henry St. Clair and 1480717. Jean Haliburton. He married 740359. Egidia 'Jill' Douglas Bet. 1404 - 17 Nov 1407.

740359. Egidia 'Jill' Douglas, born Aft. 1387 in of Nithsdale; died Aft. 1438. She was the daughter of 1480718. Sir William Douglas and 1480719. 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.

740370. 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."
