Family 1 : EMMA GUSE PLANTAGENET of Normandy

Notes


aka: Dafydd Of Gwynedd.
Child 1: Gwenllian (Angharad)
Child 2: ap Dafydd, Owain


Also on the scene were his half brothers from Owains marriage to Cristen ferch Goronwy ab Owain, Christen was Owains 1st cousin and was also the reason he was excommunicated. Her two sons Dafydd and Rhodri came to blows with Hywel at Pentraeth in Anglesey, which left Hywel dead. Gwynedd was then divided up between Dafydd & Rhodri. Within a few years Dafydd showed further ambition turning on another half brother Maelgwn who had some sway over Angelsey. After being driven out of Angelsey to be exiled in Ireland Maelgwn returned only to be defeated and imprisoned by Dafydd. Another of Dafydd's half brothers Cynan held Meirionydd, Eifionydd and Ardudwy.


Cynan dies in 1174 and the lands were left to his two sons Gruffudd & Maredudd. In 1174 Dafydd expelled them from their lands along with his full brother Rhodri who held some lands within Gwynedd at this time. Rhodri returned for his lands in 1174 only to be imprissioned by Dafydd. Dafydd then turned to cement his relations with Henry II asking permission to marry Emma of Anjou Henry's illigitimate half sister. The marriage took place also before the end of 1174. At which Rhodri had escaped from prison and had managed to raise enough force to turn the tables on Daffyd driving him out of Angelsey and all lands west of the River Conwy."

William MCGEHEE (MACKGHYE) "the Immigrant"

ABT 1618 - ABT 1675

ID Number: I40733

  • RESIDENCE: SCT and VA
  • BIRTH: ABT 1618, Scotland
  • DEATH: ABT 1675, Virginia
  • RESOURCES: See: LDS (AFN: RM8V-RG) [S1489] [S2958] [S2959]
Father: Patrick MACGREGOR (MACKGAHYE)
Mother: Marian MACDONALD


Family 1 :
  1. +William MCGEHEE (MACKGHYE)
  2. +Thomas McGEHEE (MACGREGOR)

Notes


LDS: William MACGAHAYE (AFN: RM8V-RG) Born bef 1633 SCT, died bef 1727. Spouse unknown.


"William MackGahye was possibly James MacGregor, the son of Patrick MacGregor and Marian MacDonald, who escaped Scotland for America sometime after the Montrose Rebellion of 1645. This has not been verified by any definitive means, but circumstantial evidence tends to be somewhat supportive. This William MackGayhe was granted a headright of 1000 acres in York Co., VA in William Hoccaday's grant on 14 Apr. 1653. He is believed to have been the father of William and Thomas MackGehee (who declared himself to be formerly James MacGregor) although this has not been supported by anything other than circumstantial evidence.


Other researchers have tried to connect Thomas MackGehee directly with clan chief Patrick MacGregor, but this does not seem possible. Since Patrick's son James is believed to have fought with Montrose in 1645, he would have to have been close to 100 years of age in 1724 when his will was proved and at that time had three minor children.


The name of William MackGayhe's wife has not been ascertained at this time. It is also not clear whether his two supposed children William and Thomas were born in Scotland or Virginia. According to Sir Iain Moncreiff in "The Highland Clans", in the mid-17th century "one brother of the then chieftain of the Children of the Mist emigrated to America where he was scalped by Indians". It is fairly certain that the clan chieftain at that time was Patrick's son and heir John MacGregor who adopted the name John Murray. It is therefore possible that William MackGayhe was John's brother James who is known to have come to America.


Over the years, there has been considerable confusion concerning the relationships of the early MackGehee families in America. Although many researchers have attempted to make the connection in order to establish a claim to a Royal Stuart family (and Magna Charta) heritage, it seems quite clear that Thomas MackGehee of St. John's and St. Peter's Parishes, King William Co., VA could have been James MacGregor, son of MacGregor clan chieftain Patrick MacGregor who fought with Montrose in the Scottish/English Civil War in 1645. This Thomas most probably lived his entire life in King William Co., VA on the Pamunkey River where his neighbors included families of Butler, Lipscomb, Ellitte, King and Slaughter. On 25 Apr. 1679, Thomas MackGehee (who had purchased 150 acres of land from George Smith) was among several who were given consideration for outright grants of land in Pamunkey Neck on the south side of Blackwater Swamp previously leased from the Pamunkey Indians.


It is believed that Thomas MackGehee was married previously prior to marrying Ann Baytop (daughter of Thomas Baytop of Staplehurst, Kent Co., England) about 1867 ??? in New Kent Co., VA. He may have had as many as four wives with Mary Mumford probably being his first wife. Thomas' first child was William who was baptized on 10 Oct. 1689 in St. Peter's Par., King William Co., VA. There has been some speculation that this William may have been born about 10 years earlier (in attempts to establish him as the Quaker William MackGehee), but this seems unlikely since a parish church was established by 1684 in which baptisms in that region would have been performed. Thomas MackGehee was appointed as land processioner on behalf of St. Peter's Parish, New Kent and James City counties, in 1689. In June 1699, the eventual ownership of the Pamunkey Indian lands was still under discussion and among the 28 separate grants listed was one in which Thomas MackGehee had leased 100 acres to Daniell Grant. From the Land Patent Book No. 9 (#483), located in the Register of the Land Office, Richmond, VA, the following is abstracted:


"Thomas MackGehee, 256 acres, King William County, in Pamunkey Neck; on west side of Nicaty Wance Swamp; adjacent to lands of Holway, Andrews and Parker and along Andrewes Creek, to Mrs. Pine's path. On 28 Oct. 1702, part of the land laid out according to the Articles of Peace for the Pamunkey Indians, who at a general court held 22 Oct. 1701, relinquished their right and pretensions thereto".


On 10 Mar. 1702, James Johnson granted Power of Attorney to friend Thomas Mack Gehee and witnesses were Edward Huckstep, William Lacy and John Williams. On 7 June 1706, Thomas MackGehee, Samuel Norment and William Lacy were sworn before Daniel Miles as appraisers of the estate of Alexander Autrey and met at the house of Capt. John Fox to assess the estate. On 10 Nov. 1713, Thomas MackGehee was one of several persons who appeared before the Governor in council to argue for their right to the Pamunkey Indian land. Thomas MackGehee's will was written on 27 July 1724 and was recorded and probated shortly thereafter. It must be presumed that he died in July-August of 1724.


Because of all the uncertainty concerning the relationships in these MackGehee families, the debate over all of the possible connections will no doubt continue. The most likely scenario is that William MackGayhe was actually James MacGregor and that he escaped to America sometime after 1645 to avoid the almost certain prosecution and death he was facing in Scotland for supporting the Montrose uprising. If this is correct, then William MackGayhe was the son of Patrick MacGregor (the last great MacGregor clan chief) and Marian MacDonald.


One disturbing point is that William MackGayhe would have been fathering children in his 50's. While this is certainly not impossible, it is unusual. It is quite possible that he had a previous wife and children in Scotland and may even have had other children in America. Alas, these things will probably never be known with any certainty."
