Coney, John Confederate Cavalry 8th Regiment, Kentucky Cavalry:


8th Cavalry Regiment was formed during the late summer of 1862 and mustered into Confederate service in September. The unit fought in Kentucky, then rode with J.H. Morgan. Most of the men were captured at Buffington Island on July 19 and a remnant at New Lisbon on July 26, 1863. The 8th was not reorganized. Its commanders were Colonel R.S. Cluke, Lieutenant Colonel Cicero Coleman, and Major Robert S. Bullock.

Notes


William deeded 2,000 acres of land in Rappahannock Co. VA on 16 Jul 1675, to his sons, William, Francis and Rowland, and also mentions a daughter Esther. (Deed Book 6, p. 83, Rappahannock Co VA. William Thornton was in York Co., VA by 11 May 1646, when he obliged himself by a paper recorded in that county which included Gloucester, to care for the cattle of John Liptrot until the latter came of age.

CONFLICT: "He was from Royalty", coming from Yorkshire, England no later than 1646, and settled in Stafford County, VA. His plantation was called Fall Hill, located in Stafford Co., VA., where he was buried. Not Proven line to Royalty. "The Thorntons were originally fair-haired Norwegian Vikings. The family has been traced back to Firgot, about 13 generations before Rolla. The Norse spelled Thornton as Thurston. William, The Conqueror, from Normandy, was the great-grandson of Rolla. William, the Conqueror, was crowned King of England in 1066."


From: irxp500@iupui.edu Date: Fri, 15 Oct 1999 To: gen-medieval-l@rootsweb.com.
The THORNTON family of East Newton, Yorkshire, are also claimed as the ancestors of William THORNTON (d. 1708, Stafford Co., VA), founder of a prominent Tidewater clan that includes, among others, James Madison, Meriwether Lewis, and Zachary Taylor. It is in regards to this Virginia family that claims were made regarding the descent of Agnes ALDERBOROUGH/ALDBROUGH from Edward I and Isabel de GRAY from King Stephen. As far as I can tell, both claims first appeared in a book by George K. Mckenzie titled *Colonial Families of the US.*


There are, however, a number of problems with all of these claims. As far as I know, no one has ever really been able to prove (i.e. document) that the immigrant William THORNTON (d. 1708, Stafford Co., VA) really belonged to this family, or if he was a member of this family where he connects to the family. Also, the claim of a descent from Edward I through Agnes ALDERBOROUGH needs to be researched carefully -- it's been a long time since I looked into it, but my recollection is that the claim is made through the PLUMPTON, STAPELTON, GODARD, and NEVILLE families and that there are several chronological problems at the very least. The claims made for Isabel de GRAY are not known to me.


If anyone has any particular interest in this THORNTON family and the unsubtantiated claims for a connection to the East Newton family, I'll be happy to dig through my files and see if I can help -- just e-mail me directly rather than posting to the entire list.

"William came to Virginia from Yorkshire, England around 1640 (not later than 1646). Termed by genealogists as "The Immigrant." On May 11, 1646, William Thornton was in possession of a paper recorded in York County (including Gloucester) to care for the cattle of John Liptrot until the latter came of age. On February 16, 1665/66 as "Mr. William Thornton" he had a grant of 164 acres of land in Petworth Parish, Gloucester, adjoining the land where he lived and that of Richard Barnard. He was vestryman of Petsworth Parish in 1677.


On record in Essex is a power of attorney, dated September 1673, from William Thornton of Gloucester, to James Kay of Rappahannock County concerning 2,000 acres of land in the freshes, a track of land which he had bought from Mott. There is also recorded in Essex in 1701, a deed dated July 16, 1675, from William Thornton of Gloucester, gentleman, to Francis and Rowland, two of his sons, "conveying 2,000 acres in Rappahannock County, formerly Gloucester, but now of Stafford, authorizing the confirmation of said deed." In 1649 he received a land grant of 164 acres in Gloucester County, the grant being awarded for the transfer of 4 persons from England, this being one of the first patents in Virginia (Virginia Land Patent Book 5, Page 573.) He traded in shipping on Mobjack Bay, which is across from the present city of Norfolk, near "Weromoco," stomping ground of Chief Powhatan, John Smith and Pocohontas fame. He operated the ship "Mary Jane" in shipping to Barbados, West Indies.


He died in 1708 at the home of his son, Col. Francis Thornton, in Stafford County, and it is stated that his tombstone bears his Coat of Arms, (See Crozier's "General Armory," 1904 edition, page 126, Burke's "General Armory," 1878 edition, page 1010.) Crozier, best considered of all of the plublished American heraldic authorities, records the above described coat and crest as authentic for descendants of William Thornton, of "The Hills", Yorkshire, England who came to America and settled in York County, Virginia, in the year 1646. Burke, British authority, records the same as authentic for the family of Thornton, of Scarborough, Yorkshire, which was the center of residence of this family. Kirkland Hall, in Lancaster, was the seat of one line. This line bore the lion's head of red. A line owning the estate of Birkin, in Yorkshire, England, bore the lion's head of purple, and placed the cornoet around the nect of hte lion rahter than under it. A Yorkshire line with branchess in Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, England, bore the same armsw, but changed the crest to a dragon's head nad wings of silver issuing from the ducal coronet of gold. O'Hart, in the 1923 edition of his "Irish Pedigrees," Volume 2, states that the Thorntons of England were among the twelve families among whom Queen Elizabeth divided 111,000 acres in the County of Limerick, in Ireland, which she had taken from the FitzGeralds, Earls of Desmond. This accounts for the branches of the family which settled in Ireland."


"An article written by Adelle Bartlett Harper published in the "Georgia Magazine, Dec 1967-Jan 1968" says a list made in 1675 shows Wm. to be 55; his eldest son Luke 33; Edward, 29; Wm. Jr, 26, Francis, 24; and Rowland, 21."
