Notes


"Proof that the president's great-great-grandfather, Andrew Monroe/Munro of St. Mary's Co., Md. 1642-47, & later of Westmoreland Co., Va., was not the younger "Mr." Andrew Munro, second son of David Munro of Katewell & Agnes Munro of Durness, & rector of St. Luke's Church, Newport Parish, Isle of Wight Co., Va., who died intestate in 1719, is found in Clan Munro Magazine, No. 6 (1959-60), 14-18 ("An Unsolved Problem: President James Monroe's Scottish Ancestry" by George H.S. King, author also of the WM & TAG articles cited above). Andrew Monroe/Munro of St. Mary's Co. is of unknown origin although some affiliation with the Munros of Foulis was believed by the president & seems likely.

"10/15/1792--James Monroe and Eliza, his wife, and John Taliaferro Brooke to Robert Mercer, Lot 127 in Fredericksburg for 435 pounds. Witnesses: James Madison, Jr.; John Minor, Jr. Joseph Jones (her bro.)". Other proof of this relationship include:
1. Several sources state that Joseph Jones had significant influence on his nephew, James Monroe, including Joseph's US Congress biographical sketch found on Thomas Internet site and in other books.
2. It is a known published fact that Joseph Jones wrote letters about the early days of the "free government" experiment to Thomas Jefferson (whom James Monroe studied law under), James Monroe and George Washington (1889 U.S. State Department publication of Joseph Jones' letters).
3. The naming of children in both the James Monroe and Joseph Jones families represent a cross-polination in that children in both family lines carried names found in the other family line. As an example, Joseph Jones Monroe, brother of President James Monroe, and two of James Monroe's children were named for his parents Spence and Elizabeth through James Spence and Maria Hester (Elizabeth Jones' mother's name) Monroe. And, a child of John
Lawrence Jones and Lucy Taliaferro was named Madison Monroe Jones".


"Oak Hill Plantation, Loudoun County
(http://www.people.virginia.edu/~ccf4f/Highland/Ashlawn5.html)
Monroe purchased the land on which Oak Hill was located jointly with his uncle Judge Joseph Jones of Fredericksburg, in 1794. The property consisted of approximately 4,400 acres, which they had purchased from Colonel Charles Carter of Loudoun County. Monroe inherited all interests in this land when his uncle died in 1805 with no heirs. Jones' will indicated that Monroe held the land in a moiety share. Jones' son, Joseph Jones, Jr., had lived on the property until his death, predeasing his father (Gawalt 1993: 255, 257; Hellman 1997: 17).


In 1826, Monroe was forced to sell off most of his holdings in Albemarle County, including his home at the Highlands, to pay off his debts to the United States Bank. He had first attempted to sell the Oak Hill plantation, but was unable to obtain a selling price he found acceptable (Ammon 1971: 553; Hellman 1997: 19).


The Monroes visited and stayed at Oak Hill often before 1826, and began construction of a new main house, built of brick with a large portico, in 1822. The house was built by James Hoban, using design suggestions by Thomas Jefferson. It has remained in private hands and still stands today (Hellman 1997: 18). Monroe treated Oak Hill as a primary residence from 1823 until his death on July 4, 1831. He died in New York City, while staying at his youngest daughter's residence. His wife, Elizabeth Monroe, had died at Oak Hill in 1830"."


"James Monroe served 1817-1825 as the fifth President of the United States. He was born the son of a modest planter. Entered William and Mary College in July 1774, but, caught up by the fervor of the revolutionary times, enlisted in the Third Virginia Regiment in the spring of 1776 as lieutenant and saw action in the battles of New York and New Jersey. He was seriously injured at Trenton and then served two years as an aide with the rank of Colonel to
General William Alexander (Lord Stirling). He served at Valley Forge during the winter of 1777-1778 and participated in the Battle of Monmouth.


He left the service in 1780 to study law after it became clear he could not get a field command. He studied law under Thomas Jefferson who became a lifelong friend and mentor. Monroe was elected to the Virginia House of Delegates in 1782 and was elected to the Confederation Congress 1783-1786 where he organized the opposition to the Jay-Gardoqui proposals under which the U.S. would have yielded to Spain its claim of free navigation of the
Mississippi River. He also helped lay the groundwork for territorial government through the Northwest Ordinance of 1787.


In 1789, he and his wife Elizabeth, settled in Albemarle County and lived close to T. Jefferson. James Monroe was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1790. In 1794, he was named Minister to France. From 1799-1802, he was elected Governor of Virginia where he won praise for suppressing a slave uprising (Gabriel's Insurrection in 1800).


With Thomas Jefferson's Presidency now underway, James Monroe again (1803) was sent to France as a special envoy to assist Minister Robert R. Livingston in a purchasing a port on the Mississippi River that became known as the Louisiana Purchase. He was minister to Britain 1803-1807. In 1808, he ran unsuccessfully for President against James Madison.


About 1810, he returned to the Virginia Assembly and was elected Governor again in 1811. President Madison named him Secretary of State 1811-1817 to appease a Federalist resurgence and divisions within the Republican Party.
He assumed his second cabinet post 1814-1816 after the British invaded Washington, DC.
In 1816, the Republican congressional caucus chose James Madison Monroe over William H. Crawford as its candidate for President. He easily defeated Federalist nominee Sen. Rufus King (NY) 183 to 34 in the Electoral College.


Assuming office in 1817, Monroe became known for diplomacy and statesmanship bringing about "the Era of Good Feelings" and held together the "free" government concept during a tumultuous time. His greatest achievements came in foreign affairs where he was able to acquire Florida from Spain. In 1822, European countries were aggressive in South and Latin America putting pressure of more intervention in the U.S. Monroe issued the Monroe Doctrine
in December 1823 which declared the United States would regard any interference in its internal affairs of American states as an unfriendly act".


" PRESIDENT OF THE USA HON. JAMES MONROE: James Monroe was the 5th president of the United States of America from 1817 to 1831. His eight years in the White House are recalled as the "era of good feelings" -- a period almost free from political strife. Before taking the office as president, he was Ambassador to France. He made a good enough record in Madison's Administration as Secretary of State, later also managing to carry out the duties of Secretary of War.
The Monroes went to considerable expense to redecorate the White House -- badly needed after the British raid of 1814. They entertained ambitiously. But Elizabeth Kortright Monroe suffered increasingly from migraines and depression. There was plenty in the Washington scene to give headaches to the White House.


Monroe had served his country or his state almost continuously ever since his enlistment in the Continental Army at the age of eighteen. He had been a member of the Continental Congress, a leader of the U.S. Senate, and twice Governor of Virginia. He was an experienced diplomat. Perhaps most important of all, he had been closely connected with Jefferson ever since 1780. A comment is that he was a thoroughly deserving public figure, untouched by scandal, who was given his due reward -- the ultimate, highest office in the land.

Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography, Volume II, I--Fathers of the Revolution: James Monroe son of Spence and Eliza (Jones) Monroe, and a descendant of Andrew Monroe, a ship captain, who first settled in Maryland and afterwards came to Westmoreland county, Virginia, was born in that county, April 20, 1758. At the outbreak of the revolutionary war he was one of the twenty-five students who left William and Mary College to enter the army, he enlisting at Washington's headquarters in New York City. He was appointed lieutenant in the Third Virginia Regiment, under General Hugh Mercer, took part in the battle of Harlem, where he was severely wounded in the shoulder while leading the advance; he was also present at the battles of White Plains and Trenton; served as a volunteer aide with the rank of major, on the staff of the Earl of Stirling, and took part in the battles of Brandywine, Germantown and Monmouth. He was diverted from further field service by appointment by Governor Jefferson as lieutenant-colonel and military commissioner to inspect the condition of the army of the South. In 1782 he was elected to the state assembly, and soon called to the executive council. He sat in the Congress of 1783-86, in New York, and there presented his bill for the temporary government of the new northwest territory, and which culminated in the ordinance of 1787. He was appointed one of the judges to decide the New York and Massachusetts boundary question, but as both states were opposed to his views as to the right of free navigation of the Mississippi, he resigned. After leaving Congress, he practiced law in Fredericksburg. He was elected to the state assembly, and also to the state convention of 1788, called to consider the ratification of the United States constitution. Fearing the result of a highly centralized power, he cast his vote against the ratification, but was reconciled by the adoption later of the first ten amendments. In 1790 he became United States senator to fill an unexpired term (Grayson, deceased), serving until 1795, when President Washington appointed him minister to France. An aggressive anti-Federalist, while in the senate he had antagonized some of the views of the president and several of his appointments, and his appointment to the French mission was a great surprise to the nation. He was severely criticized for his friendliness to France, and the apprehension that the British ministry might be offended, led to his recall, and on his returning home he wrote an exhaustive vindication. He was elected governor of Virginia and served from 1799 to 1802. On the election of Jefferson to the presidency, Monroe was again sent to France as an additional plenopotentiary. and with Robert R. Livingston procured the cession of the Louisiana territory. He subsequently filled diplomatic appointments to Spain, where he negotiated for the purchase of Florida, but failed; and to Great Britain, where with William Pinkney he concluded a treaty. The instrument failed to protect American seamen from impressment or to secure indemnity for American goods seized, and the president would not send it to the senate, whereupon Monroe returned and gave out a defense of his conduct. He was a third time elected to the state assembly, and in 1811 was again elected governor, but left the office after a few months to take the post of secretary of state under President Madison. He also acted as secretary of war, 1814-15. In 1816 he was elected president, and his conduct of the office and the peaceful condition of the country led to his re-election, with practically no opposition--a unique instance in the history of American politics. In his message to Congress in 1823, in reference to a possible attempt by Spain to regain Florida, he laid down the principles known as "The Monroe Doctrine," using these words: "We should consider any attempt on their part (a foreign power) to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere, as dangerous to our peace and safety." and again: "The American continents by the free and independent condition which they have assumed and maintained, are henceforth not to be considered as subjects for future colonization by any European powers." He subsequently effected a treaty with Spain and concluded the purchase of the Floridas. Although favoring internal improvements, he vetoed the Cumberland Road bill, holding that Congress had no authority to make appropriations for internal uses unless of national importance. During his administration, the Marquis de Laiayette was entertained as the nation's guest. On retiring from the presidency, Mr. Monroe retired to his country seat at "Oak Hill," Loudoun county, Virginia, but in 1829-30 he was a member of the state convention. Subsequently he went to live with his son-in-law, Samuel L. Gouverneur, then postmaster at New York. He was financially embarrassed, and sought to enter upon the practice of law, but his years and impaired health forbade success, and he lived a very quiet and uneventful life, until his death, July 4, 1831. He was married, in 1786, to Elizabeth, daughter of Lawrence Kortright, of New York.
