LEONARD DIGGES of Wooten Court

ABT 1520 - ABT 1559

ID Number: I42032

  • OCCUPATION: Magna Carta Surety descent & desc. of Charlemagne
  • RESIDENCE: Kent & London, ENG
  • BIRTH: ABT 1520, Digges Court, near Canterbury, Kent
  • DEATH: ABT 1559, England [203818]
  • RESOURCES: See: Notes [S1531]
Father: JAMES DIGGES
Mother: PHILIPPA ENGHAM


Family 1 : BRIDGET WILFORD
  1. +THOMAS DIGGES Esq. of Wooten

Notes


"Digges was born prior to 1530-1, when he was listed in a visitation of Kent. He was admitted to Lincoln's Inn in 1537. Died: England, c.1559 Dateinfo: Both Dates Uncertain. May have attended a University, but no real evidence and certainly no proof. Biographia britannica says University College, Oxford, and Wood says he was at Oxford but the college is not known. It seems fairly certain that he took no degree if indeed he did attend a university.


5. Religion Affiliation: Anglican


Leonard Digges participated in Wyatt's rebellion against Mary. From what little I know of it, the rebellion was as much against Spanish interference as against Catholicism, and I have found no statement whatever about Digges' motivation.


6. Scientific Disciplines - Primary: Mathematics, Crt Secondary: Opt, Astronomy
Subordinate: It Is Difficult To Establish Digges'S Scientific Productions precisely because it was mostly published by his son, Thomas Digges, with his own work mixed in. However, Tectonicon, 1556, a surveying manual emphasizing practical mathematics, was all his.


Thomas Digges published Pantometria (surveying and cartography), 1571, and Stratioticos (military engineering), 1579, both as essentially his father's work. In Pantometria, Thomas Digges described his father's skill in optics.


Digges' Prognostication, first published in 1553, apparently to earn money after his estate was attainted for treason, and then reprinted frequently until 1605, was an almanac with, among other things, astronomical information, for example on how to determine the hour at night from the stars, and information about instruments for observation.


7. Means of Support - Primary: Personal Means; Secondary: Publishing


Inherited wealth from his ancient and considerable family, enough to give him ample means and leisure.
He was attainted for treason as a result of Wyatt's rebellion, lost his estate, and in the last years of his life apparently tried to support himself partly through publication. Digges dedicated Prognostication of Right Good Effect, 1555, to Lord Clinton, later the Earl of Lincoln, who apparently saved Digges from execution for his participation in Wyatt's rebellion under Mary.


9. Technological Involvement Types: Cartography, Navigation, Military Engineering, Instruments, Architecture. Applied mathematics to surveying, navigation and gunnery. He was known as an architect and as a master of fortification. He invented the instrument now called the theodolite.
Informal Connections: Friendship with Dee, and influence on his son, Thomas Digges.

John MCFARLAND

1708 - 1784

ID Number: I75861

  • RESIDENCE: IRE and Lancaster Co. PA and Bedford Co. VA
  • BIRTH: 1708, Ireland
  • DEATH: 1784, Bedford Co. Virginia
  • RESOURCES: See: [S2898]
Father: Robert MCFARLAND "the Immigrant"


Family 1 : Mary MONTGOMERY
  1. +John MCFARLAND

Notes


"There is a lot of misinformation out there about Sir John, or Old Scotland John. It has been most clearly written about in the article by James A. McFarland of Tulsa, OK and more recently in the Clan McFarland newsletter, The Lantern. In this article the genealogy editor explains that Sir or Old Scotland John wasn't really knighted or from Scotland.


His father Robert who m Jennet were from Northern Ireland and migrated into Lancaster PA. Samuel Evans, the noted historian of PA writes in Notes and Queries, 3rd seried, Vol 2 by Wm Henry Egle, "Robert McFarland settled along Little Chickies creek, in Donegal township, Lancaster county, about one mile south of Mt. Joy borough, in the year 1720". This is where I believe that the misunderstanding occurs. He was in Donegal PA, not Scotland. In Charles K. Bolton's book, Scotch Irish Pioneers in Ulster and America he states, "The Scotch Irish migration of Presbyterians to Chester County began in 1719 and thus came long after the English-Irish migration of Quakers which had begun in 1682. These Presbyterians became of sufficient influence in Chester County in 1722 to obtain the name Donegal for their township. Chief among them at this time were. James Galbraith, etc., etc", and the list goes on down to "
Robert McFarland and his sons Robert and James."
****Above note from Mary Haines...maryhaines@juno.com*******


--Following notes provided by Robert B. Neil, Warrensburg, TN--
Sir John Mc Farland, of Arroguah, Scotland, was born in the highlands of Scotland in 1708. He was the last of the chieftans for his clan. In 1728 he married Mary Montgomery who was born in 1712. After the battle of Culloden, about 1746, Sir John fled to America from Argyleshire. He was the first of his family to come to America. The Duke of Argyle seized his estate in Scotland but it is still in the possession of his descendants.


He settled in the Shenandoah valley of VA and also lived in Bedford and Augusta counties, VA. Sir John was an elder in the Presbyterian Church, the old stone church in Bedford County he attended is still standing. William Callaway's List of Loyal Americans gives the name of Sir John Mc Farland taking the oath of Allegiance to the state of VA, September 1777, as follows:


"I do swear that I renounce and refuse all allegiance to George III, King of Great Britain, and that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the Commonwealth of VA as a free and independent state, that I will discover and make known to some to some one... all treasons or traitorious conspiracies which I know or shall hereafter know to be formed against this or any of the United States of America. So help me God.".


Sir John was too old for military service, but was an ardent patriot and had several sons who fought for America's freedom, and one son, James McFarland, was killed by the Indians. Sir John Mc Farland died in Bedford County VA around 1784."


"327 acres on Sally Run in Montgomery County, VA to John Finley, November 1773
(DB 1:142). There is also a sale from John McFarland, Sr. of Russell Parish, Bedford County to John McFarland, Jr., of Montgomery County, 367 acres on Reedy Creek (Montgomery DB A:234). In addition, a Robert McFarland received 166 acres on Reed Creek, 16 December 1773 (VA State Library, Record of Plotts, reel 33, Book A, p. 79).


Appeared in 1749 as a petitioner to open a road from Zachariah Calhouns, on Reed Creek to Buffalo Lick and then to Woods River below mouth of Little River, towards forks of Meadow Creek between Woods River and South fork of Roanoke. (Chalkley, vol. 1:434). On 23 May 1750, he was named a surveyor for this project along with Joseph Crockett; tithables named included John McFarland, John Downing, Wm. Sayers, Robert McFarlin (Chalkley vol. 1:40; Augusta County OB 2:371).


In 1750, Jno. McFarland, Constable, appeared on list of delinquents (Chalkley vol. 2:415).


On 4 May 1763, John McFarland and Mary, of Bedford County sold 106 acres, patent on branch of Reed Creek to Hugh Montgomery for 52.10 pounds (Chalkley vol. 3:401; Augusta County DB 11:329).


On 29 October 1767, John and Mary of Bedford sold 98 acres on a branch of Reed Creek to James Holles for 40 pounds (Chalkley vol. 3:461; Augusta County DB 14:88)."
