WILLIAM MARKHAM Lord of East Markham

ABT 1200 - ____

ID Number: I27562

  • RESIDENCE: Markham, England
  • BIRTH: ABT 1200
  • RESOURCES: See: [S1021]

Family 1 : CECILIA LEXINGTON

Notes


"Sir Alexander, Lord of East Markham, who was appointed Castellan of Nottingham Castle by Henry II. His descendant, Francis Markham, in his 'Book of Honour', says that the office was accompanied by _ 'letters patent of great trust and fidelity, as may be seen by divers precedents at this time extant; and for mine own part I myself have seen one granted to an ancestor of mine own, by the name and style of Sir Alexander Markham Knight, Castellan of Nottingham Castle, the tenour or purport of which commission or grant was in effect and substance almost the very same which at this day is granted to the lords lieutenants of counties'.


Mr. Hartshorne, in his account of Rockingham Castle, says that the privilege of holding a royal castle as its constable was considered so honourable that it was only confided to men of high military renown, or of ascertained courage and attachment to the crown. The Heralds begin the Markham Pedigree with Sir Alexander.


William, Lord of East Markham, inherited the estates of his father, Sir Alexander. He greatly increased his paternal inheritance by his marriage with Cecilia de Lexington, one of the six children of Richard de Lexington and his wife, Matilda de Cauz. By his wife, Cecilia Lexington, William Markham had four sons:


Richard, who died without issue. He granted the monks of Blithe 20s. per annum for the moiety of the mill at Murihild bridge.
Robert.
William.
John.


In the time of Edward I the Markhams, after the Lexington marriage, appear to have borne the Lexington cross, charged with 5 escallops. The lion issuant dates from the time of Edward III. In 1408 Sir John Markham bore, parted per fess or and azure, a lion issuant gules; soon afterwards the coat was azure, on a chief or, a lion issuant gules."

Notes


"Benjamin was one of the pioneers who blazed the trail to California in 1841. A savage Indian fighter, he was said to have returned from one battle with a basket full of enemy heads. Later, however, as an Indian agent, he became a strong advocate for protecting Indian rights. Don Benito, as he was called, gained great wealth through his marriage to the daughter of a prominent Mexican. A highly respected man, he established the orange industry in California. Mt. Wilson is named after him." This Note was authored by Larry Overmire, Please credit if reproduced elsewhere.


Ancestry.com Description: Indian agents were an important part of the lives of many Native Americans in California after the Mexican-American War. This database is a report filed by one of these agents in the southern part of the territory. Written in 1851 by the mayor of Los Angeles, it outlines the major problems the white settlers were experiencing with the Indians who lived around the local missions. Researchers will find information regarding the lifestyles of these men and women, from the perspective of a politician and rancher. For those wishing to understand the views of many white settlers toward the natives, this can be an interesting database.


Extended Description: Benjamin Davis Wilson (1811-1878) of Tennessee came to California in 1841, married into the prominent Yorba family, and acquired a vast property, including a ranch that encompassed the site of modern Riverside. He was elected mayor of Los Angeles in 1851 and was named sub-agent for Indian Affairs for Southern California not long after. The Indians of southern California in 1852 (1952) reprints a report Wilson prepared in collaboration with Benjamin Hayes after being named a federal Indian agent. The document identifies two major problems: the security of ranches and settlements from Indian raids and the plight of the mission Indians. He recommends a reservation system as the solution to both. John Walton Caughey's introduction provides useful background, supplemented by his appendix of "Contemporary Comment."

Benjamin D. Wilson, Report on California Indians, 1852: BIOGRAPHICAL DATA on Benjamin Davis Wilson are contained in the collected correspondence of many of his contemporaries, but particularly in the Wilson Papers in the Huntington Library. For his early career the basic document is his "Observations on Early Days in California and New Mexico," a dictation for Hubert Howe Bancroft in 1877, MS, Bancroft Library, and available in Robert G. Cleland, Pathfinders (Los Angeles, 1929), 371-416, and, with annotations by Arthur Woodward, in Historical Society of Southern California, Annual Publication for 1934, pp. 74-150. A review and appraisal of his career may be found in John Walton Caughey, "Don Benito Wilson, an Average Southern Californian," Huntington Library Quarterly, II (1939), 285-300. See also Melbourne F. Aitken, "Benjamin D. Wilson, Southern California Pioneer" (M. A. thesis, U.C.L.A., 1948). many other sources cited.


"On January 20 Los Angeles was captured by Castro and Alvarado after a fight in which several men were actually killed. The “silvertongued” Don Juan Bautista then spent a week in winning the people to his side by reminding them of the rascalities committed upon them by Micheltorena's soldiery, of the governor's own treachery in employing foreigners and Indians against the Californians, of the dangerous power that would be wielded by Sutter in case of success, and other irresistible arguments. “When it was known that a revolution had broken out against Micheltorena and his rabble,” writes Benjamin Davis Wilson, pioneer of 1841, “all classes joined with the greatest alacrity to get the country rid of the scourge, and to prevent Micheltorena and his scum from entering Los Angeles.” A band of about fifty foreigners, headed by Wilson and William Workman, joined Alvarado, and on February 21 Castro left Los Angeles at the head of the rebels and marched to meet the enemy."
