Notes


"The Family of Hamilton"; 1897 "Genealogies and Reminisences"; Henrietta Hamilton McCormick; 1897: "Roger de Bellomont, Lord of Pont Audemer, who gave name to the town of Beaumont in Normandy, He accompanied William the Conqueror on his successful expedition into England in 1066 and had a comand in the army sent against Malcolm the Third, King of Scotland. The Abbey of Preaux in Normandy, the foundation of which had been laid by his father, he finished and endowed. Roger de Bellomont became a monk in the Abbey of Preaux, where he died and was buried. He married Adelina, only daughter of Walleran, Earl of Mellent, getting with her the Earldom of Mellent." McCormick-Hamilton-Lord-Day Ancestral Lines",1957 by Elizabeth Day McCormick & Robert Hall McCormick; pg45


Information furnished by Don Wyatt (wyatt@zeus.worldramp.net) "He gave name to the town Beaumont Le Roger in Normandy. He persuaded the Norman Duke to invade England, and in fact accompanied him on that expedition.


Siegneur of Beaumont, Pontaudemer, Brionne and Vatteville, Normandy


"Roger de Beaumont, Sire de Pont Audemer, succeeded to the family estates in Normandy, as Sire du Pont Audemer, Seigneur de Veulles, Preaux, Torville, and du Pnteaitorf, and Seigneur de Beaumont (or Bellomont), by which last name he came to be generally described. By his marriage he greatly increased the possessions and prestige of the family, and he rose to be one of the most powerful feudal noblemen of his age in Normandy. When William the Conqueror invaded England in 1066, Roger de Beaumont furnished sixty armed vessels for the fleet and was left in charge of the government of Normandy when the Conqueror started on the expedition. He munificently endowed the Abbey of Preaux, of which late in life he became a monk; and dying in 1094 at advanced age, he was buried in this monastery at Pont Audemer. He married about 1040 Adeline de Meullant, daughter and eventually sole heiress of Waleran, Comte de Meullant, a great feudal nobleman of France. She died in 1081." ----- J Gardner Bartlett, "Newberry Genealogy", Boston, 1914, p.4-5


"Roger de Beaumont was born about 1010 in "of" Pont Audemer, Normandy, France. IGI has abt 1022. So does Roderick W. Stuart, "Royalty for Commoners", 2nd edition, 1992, p 161 (line 220). He died in 1094. Or Roger de Bellomont - The same tihing is true of Beaumont (i.e., the name "may well be Norman or at least French in origin". There was a Roger de Beaumont recorded in the Domesday book as holding Sturminster Marshal in Dorset, and this Roger certainly took his name from Beaumont in Normandy. From Roger descended the Counts of Meulan, the old Earls of Leicester, and the old Earls of Warwick" ---- Leslie Gilbert Pine, "They Came with the Conqueror, A study of the modern descendants of the Normans", London (Evans Brothers, LTD) 1954, p.106-107


".................... was succeeded by his son Roger, soon to be styled 'of Beaumont', who first brought the family to greatness. For a time, however, its fortunes were precarious, since during the minority of Duke William a fierce struggle took place between Beaumont and Tosny in which not only Roger II of Tosny but also Robert the brother of Roger of Beaumont perished. Never the less, Roger of Beaumont himself prospered. Leaving Vieilles, he extablished himself on the neighbouring hill of Beaumont, where he built a famous castle, and there he remained in power throughout William the Conqueror's lifetime. He did not take part in the campaign at Hastings, but was represented at that battle by his eldest son, Robert. His own interests, in fact, remained in Normandy, though in 1086 he is recorded as possessing some estates in Dorset and Gloucestershire. But his two sons, Robert and Henry became great landowners in England and in due course respectively Earls of Leicestershire and Warwick. Thus it was that a man who had been active in Norman politics in the time of Duke Robert I survived until after the time of Domesday Book, and having established the fortunes of a great Norman family, left behind him two sons who were to acquire English earldoms. The rise of Beaumont can in truth be described as both rapid and spectacular." "William the Conqueror;The Norman Impact Upon England" by David C. Douglas: 1964; University of California Press, pg 86, 87


"Between 1066 and 1087 William the Conqueror spent more time in France than in England, and it is a measure of his prestige that he could trust others to carry on the highly individual policy he inaugurated. As hs been seen in 1066 he confidently entrusted the government of Normandy to Matilda, Roger of Montgomery and Roger of Beaumont..................." "William the Conqueror;The Norman Impact Upon England" by David C. Douglas: 1964; University of California Press, pg 316


"Of Roger, Count de Beaumont, it is unanimously recorded that he was the noblest, the wealthiest, and the most valiant seigneur of Normandy, and the greatest and most trusted friend of the Danish family. Son of Humphrey de Vielles, and grandson of Thorold de Pontaudemer, a descendant of the Kings of Denmark, through Bernard the Dane, a companion of the first Norman Conqueror, Duke Rollo, illustrious as was such as origin in the eyes of his countrymen, he considered his alliance with Adelina, Countess of Meulent, sufficiently honorable and important to induce him to adopt the title of her family in preference to that of his own.


We have already heard of his first great exploit, when, as a young man, in the early years of Duke William, he defeated the turbulent Roger de Toeni, who with his two sons were slain in that sanguinary conflict (vide p. 19, ante). Towards the invading fleet he contributed, according to Taylor's List, sixty vessels, and being at that time advanced in years, and selected to superintend the affairs of the duchy sent his young son Robert to win his spurs at Senlac." The Conqueror and His Companions; J.R. Planche, Somerset Herald.London; Tinsley Brothers, 1874."


Roger de Beaumont; Seigneur (feudal Lord) of Beaumont, Pontaudemer, Brionne and Vatteville, Normandy; married Adeline, sister of Hugh Count of Meulan and daughter by his 1st wife of Waleran Count of Meulan. [Burke's Peerage]


The well-known Roger de Beaumont held Sturminster Marshal, Dorset, in 1086; it descended to the counts of Meulan through Roger's eldest son, Robert count of Meulan. That Roger took his name from Beaumont is a part of the general history of Normandy. It follows that Roger's descendants, the counts of Meulan, the Earls of Leicester, and the Earls of Warwick, all derive from Beaumont-le-Roger. [The Origins of Some Anglo-Norman Families]

Notes


"will was written in Lancaster county 30 Nov 1659 and proved 25 Jan 1659/60. Obert, of Dutch extraction, also left a wife Anne, sons Bartram and Chichley, a daughter Agatha Obert who married Christopher Robinson of Hewick, and a daughter Elizabeth Obert who married James Curtis. This means that Elizabeth Obert was the sister-in-law of John2 Vause (the term "sister" was often used in the old records to mean sister-in-law).


Obert was in Virginia by 1642 when he patented 650 acres on Poropotank Creek (which now forms the boundary between Gloucester and King and Queen Counties) on 10 Oct 1642, near land of Mr. Vaus. (C&P I:135). This land was due for the transportation of 13 persons including Bertram Hobert, himself twice and his wife Sarah. The reference to Mr. Vaus appears to be to Robert Vaus or Vau(l)x, who as Robert Vaus, merchant, was granted 1,200 acres on 10 in Poropotancke Creek on 10 Aug 1642, near land of Captain Wormeley, for transporting 24 persons (C&P I:132). This suggests that Obert was likely acquainted with Robert Vaus(e) or Vau(l)x by this date."
