Notes


Genealogical and Personal History of Fayette County Pennsylvania, Vol I
Fayette County
McCormick
The emigrant ancestor of the McCormicks , of Fayette county, Pennsylvania, herein recorded, was Dr. John McCormick , who emigrated from Ireland to Virginia between the years 1730 and 1740.


In the Orange county, Virginia , records there is a deed, under date of May 21, 1740 , from Just Hite to "John McCormick , of Orange county ," for three hundred and ninety-five acres of land. Later he took up other grants adjoining this property, which was located in that part of Orange county that later became Jefferson county, West Virginia . It was on this estate near Summit Point that in 1840 he built "The White House," which was still standing in 1903 .


He was a graduate in medicine of the University of Dublin, and brought to this country with him a large and valuable medical library, which at his death was sold to Dr. Cramer , then the leading physician of Charlestown .


He died in 1768, leaving a wife and eight children. In his will, made May 8, 1768 , and recorded February 8, 1769, he mentions wife Anne and sons James, John , Francis, William, George, Andrew, daughter "Mary Tate, wife to Magnus Tate," and "Jean Bryen, wife to James Bryen." His wife and son James were executors of his estate.


It is indicated that he was married before coming to this country, but the maiden name of his wife cannot be found, The descendants of his eight children are scattered throughout many states. It is said of the early members of the family that they were singularly unobtrusive people, content in happiness derived from their own family relations, being extremely clannish; both the men and women were strictly honorable, affectionate, domestic and courteous; one of their marked characteristics was a strict regard for the truth.


One of the heirlooms of the family was an old English prayer book which descended from Dr. John McCormick to his son Francis, and was given by him to his son Thomas at his marriage, but was unfortunately destroyed during the civil war. In it was the family tree on parchment; on another page, Dr. John McCormick in a blue broadcloth suit with brass buttons; another, the marriage scene; and yet another, Anne McCormick with a blue bodice and yellow silk or satin skirt, with a branch in her hand and a bud; another, a death scene, coffin, etc., and a notice of dates, births and death beneath. The dates were all in the year 1700 . Francis, one of the sons of Dr. John McCormick , was born April 17, 1734; one of his two wives was a Miss Province, after whom his son Province was named. Province McCormick served in the war of 1812 with the rank of colonel. The name Province was also perpetuated in the family of William McCormick , but spelled Provance.

Notes


"the youngest, Richard, became the 1st Lord Scrope of Bolton. Richard le Scrope, 1st Baron Scrope of Bolton was born in 1328 and at the age of seventeen succeeded his brother William in their father's estates. Richard was probably the finest and most capable of all the medieval Scropes. He spent much of his early days in the saddle fighting for his King and was later appointed Chancellor of England. The earliest notice of him is at the Battle of Crecy on 20 August 1346, fighting with Edward III. After Crecy, he returned to England and is remarkably mentioned again at the Battle of Neville's Cross on the 17 October 1346. It was here that he was knighted while in the service of the Lord Percy.


He returned to France almost immediately and joined Edward III and the Black Prince at the siege of Calais in 1346-47. While at the siege his right to bear the family crest of a crab issuing from a ducal coronet was first challenged. Robert de Ufford, earl of Suffolk came to defend Scrope's honour by stating that this was his right as Scrope was descended from an ancient family and had every right to bear arms. Over the next forty years there was hardly a campaign in the Hundred Years War in which Richard le Scrope didn't take part.


In 1350 he is found again with the King and the Black Prince fighting in the earl of Warwick's retinue at the Battle of Winchelsea. This sea battle was really no more than a grand pirate raid against some Spanish ships loaded with treasure heading out of the then great French sea port of Sluys. The sea battle is mentioned in some detail by Jean Froissart in his chronicles. He tells of Edward's Queen and other spectators watching the battle from the sea cliffs at Fairlight in Sussex, near to Winchelsea. In November 1355 he is again back in France with William de Bohun and by Dec/Jan 1356 he is found back in the North of England taking repossession of Berwick-upon-Tweed with the King. On 20 January 1356 he is at the surrender of Edward Balliol at Rokesburgh to King Edward III.


Three years later in October 1359 he is back in France with John of Gaunt. On this occasion he was accompanied by five other members of the Scrope family: Sir Henry, Sir Geoffrey and Sir William along with Stephen and Henry le Scrope, both esquires. The following year in May 1360 he was present at the signing of the Treaty of Bretigny where Edward III renounced his claim to the Crown of France whilst retaining Aquitaine, Calais and other important provinces. He was also in Bordeaux with John of Gaunt in 1366 and fought with his two cousins, William and Stephen le Scrope at the Battle of Najara in 1367 when Edward, Black Prince of Wales tried to restore Don Pedro to the Spanish throne.


By 1371 he was summoned to Parliament as a Baron of the Realm and the same year he was appointed treasurer, an office he held until 1375. In 1378, under Richard II, he was appointed Chancellor of England and held the post for two years before being re-appointed in 1381. It was while he was Chancellor that he was given licence to castellate the manor of Bolton and work began on the building of Bolton Castle.


Over the next couple of years he was constantly in the saddle in his capacity as Warden of the Northern Marches. It was while he was on these duties in 1385 that the infamous challenge was issued by Scrope to Sir Robert Grosvenor over his right to bear the arms, Azure a bend d'or. This famous hearing reads like a Who's Who in the world of chivalry of the 14th century with some of the leading figures of the age appearing in support of Scrope. The hearing was to last a full four years with John of Gaunt, Henry Bolingbroke, Henry 'Hotspur' Percy, Owen Glendower and Geoffrey Chaucer all backing Scrope. Judgement was eventually given in the favour of Richard le Scrope at Westminster Hall in 1389, with the two men being publicly reconciled before the King in Parliament. The full texts of this dispute are available and make remarkable reading, going into heraldry and the wars of Edward III in quite some detail. The study of these texts by some literary academics have led them to come to the conclusion that Chaucer's Knight and some of his other works were written and based on the life of Richard le Scrope and the families of Bolton and Masham."
