The First Records of FANCHER ?

FANSHAWE GATE, HOLMESFIELD, Co. DERBY
By Basil Fanshawe
Pg 353
 

The name of the place was variously spelt Faunchall, FAUNCHER, ffaunchelle, etc. until finally it was spelt ffanshawe. The spelling of the family name varied in like manner, which would point either to the family having taken its name from the place or the place from the family.....

From these Court Rolls it would appear that from about 1260, successive John ffaunchalls and FAUNCHERS, from father to son, were admitted to Fanshawe Gate and resided there and farmed the land, together with other land rented from the Manor, until the time of John ffanshawe (b. 1504 d. 1578)

A brief history of the spellings of FANSHAW
Journal of the Derbyshire Archaeological and Natural History Society Vol XXX February 1908
 "Court Rolls Of The Manor of Holmesfield" (Dronsfield) By H.C. Fanshawe (Documenting the dates and spellings of the earliest FANSHAW

records in the Court Rolls from the translation and abstract by Rev Charles Kerry, and notes on the re-examination and correction of same
by Mr. H. I. Jeayes of the British Museum)

Pg 173
The first point to be noticed is a footnote by Mr. Kerry at page 84 of the Journal, indicating that a certain entry of July 1543, was the first relating to the family of FANSHAWE, of Fanshawe Gate in Holmesfield. On looking through the transcript, however, it was clear to me that various entries under the spelling of FANCHALL, FAUNCHALL, FOWNCHALL, etc. related to this family and a reference to the editor of the transcript confirmed this conjecture. Mr. Kerry felt sure that his copy of the spelling of the above names was correct, and that the second syllable of the name appeared in the original roll with a "ll".

Pg 174
...re-examination of the roll... Mr. Jeayes (of the British Museum) was able to confirm Mr. Kerry's reading of the final syllable of the name, which appears in the roll with a "ll" down to 1516. From that year there is a break in the record down to 1540 where the name is spelt FFANTSHAWE and 1543 where it is spelt FFANSHAW, as in its present form.

Pg 175

In the Court of 13 Nov. 17 Hen. VII the name is spelt FFAUNCHALL and not FFOUNCHALL as in the printed transcript, and in the Court of the Monday before St. Andrew, 14 Hen. VII it is spelt FFAWNCHER, not FFAUNCHALL.

Court Rolls of the Manor of Holmesfield
Pg 69

In the Court of Thursday next before the feast of St. James, 18 Hen. VII, the Jury presented Henry FANCHALL for occupying a way called Grenegate which he was forbidden to use under pain of 40 pence. 

In the roll of the Court of 22 Nov., 18 Hen. VII, the name is entered Henricus FFANTCHARD.

VIRGINIA COLONY CENSUS

NEWCE, George VA VIRGINIA COLONY VIRGINIA 1607
NEWCE, HENRY VA VIRGINIA COLONY VIRGINIA 1607
*Sir Henry FANSHAW VA VIRGINIA COLONY VIRGINIA 1607

The pedigree of this family in the "Visitation" of 1634, begins with Clement Newce of London, Mercer, whose great grandson, William Newce of Much Hadham, married Mary, * daughter of Sir John Fanshawe*, and had issue; 1. Thomas, councillor of Virginia; 2. William, councillor of Virginia; 3. Henry; 4. Clement. At a meeting of the Virginia Company, May 17, 1620, Mr. Treasurer signified to the court the company's former resolve for the entertainment of two new officers by them, namely, deputies to govern two parts of the public land in Virginia." Mr. George Thorpe had already been chosen for one of these places, and the treasurer now anounced that the other was to be filled by a gentleman of the same worth, now present, called Mr. Thomas Newce, touching whom it was agreed that he should take charge of the company's land and tenants in Virginia whatsoever, and that they for his entertainment have ordered that he and such as shall succeed him shall have 1200 acres belonging to that office, 600 at Kiquotan, now called Elizabeth City, 400 at Charles City, 100 at Henrico, and 100 at James City; and, for the managing of this land, (they) have further agreed that he shall have forty tenants to be placed thereon, whereof twenty (are) to be sent presently, and the other twenty in the spring ensuing, all which now being put to the question received a general approbation." On June 28, 1620, Newce was further honored by appointment to the Virginia council, and he arrived in the colony the following winter. On April 30, 1621, the company adopted a resolution "concerning Capt. Thos. Newce, the company's deputy in Virginia, as well in the discharge of a former promise made unto him, to the end that his reward might be no less than of others whose persons and deserts they doubted not but he could equal, they therefore agreed to add ten persons more when the company shall be able to make the former number 50." Newce's name appears signed to several letters from the governor and council in Virginia, but he did not live long in the land of his adoption. The governor and council, writing to the Earl of Southampton April 3, 1623, mention "Captain" Newce as "lately dead," and George Sandys wrote of him on April 8, that he died "very poor" and that an allowance had been made for his wife and child.

*The reference to Mary being dau. of Sir John FANSHAW is in error. S/B Sir Henry.

Mary FANSHAW was THE DAUGHTER of Sir Henry FANSHAW (of the 2nd VA Charter 1609) who is enumerated on the VA Colony census in 1607 and 1611.

Sir Henry FANSHAW, Knt of Fanshaw Gate, Ware Park, etc. Third Remembrancer
of the Exchequer; bapt 13 Aug 1569, d. 10 March 1616. Married after May 1593, Elizabeth, youngest daughter of Thomas SMYTHE (SMITH) of Ostenhanger: Elizabeth b. 1577 bur. 3 June 1631


Sir THOMAS SMITH, sonne of THOMAS SMITH of OSTENHANGER, KENT, ENG. was one of the greatest merchants of his day and a leader in exploration and the extension of E. commerce. He was born about 1558, was an incorporator of the Turkey Co. in 1681, "a principal member of the RUSSIA Co." 1587, one of Raleigh's assignees of his Virginia interests in 1580, also an incorporator and first governor of the East India Company, ambassador to Russia, 1604, M. P. 1604-1611. For over ten years he was the head as treasurer of the Virginia Co.

Alexander Brown in his book, "Genesis of the United States," II, 1012-1018:

The numerous charitable bequests contained in the will are still administered by the "Skinners Company." Many persons named in his will were associated and lived in Virginia. Capt. Nathaniel Butler, who excited so much indignation in Virginia, by his accounts of the colony, was a half-brother of Sir Oliver Butler. Sir Thomas Smith's sister Ursula, who married Simon Harding, must have married again and became the mother of Sir Oliver and the step-mother of Nathaniel. This connection with the Smith party in the Company is worth nothing. Sir Arthur Harris, another nephew named, was a member of the Virginia Company. Thomas Fanshaw, and his father, Sir Henry Fanshaw (Smith's brother-in-law), were members of the Company. Lady Kathrine Hayward was wife of Sir Royland Hayward, Lord Mayor of London. Her daughter, Mary, married Sir Warham St. Leger, of Ulcombe, Kent, and was the mother of Ursula St. Leger who married Rev. Daniel Horsmanden. She has many descendants in Virginia. Sir Humphrey Hanford or Hansford was a member of the Company, also Sir Thomas Roe, John Woodhall, Sir John Merrick, Sir William Russell, Sir Francis Fofton, Richard Edwards, Nathaniel Rich, Alderman Johnson, and others named in the will. "Smith's Hundred," a tract of 100,000 acres near the Chickahominy River (in the present Charles City County), was named for Sir Thomas Smith, but later in 1620 was changed to "Southampton Hundred," in honor of the Earl of Southampton.--See the Virginia Magazine, Volume XXVI--No. 3, page 271.

7 June 1591 Will of Thomas "The Customer" SMYTHE

(This is the father of the Sir Thomas SMYTHE (below) who named some FANSHAWEs
in his Will with confusing references to Lady Fanshawe, Lady Joanne Fanshawe, etc.)

Mr. Thomas Smythe, by his wife Dame Alice, the daughter of Sir Andrew Judde before mentioned, had (besides Andrew, who died when an infant) six sons and six daughters. First, John; then Thomas, Henry, Richard, Robert, and Symon. His daughters were Elizabeth, unmarried at the time of his death; Mary, the wife of Robert Davy; Joan, the wife of Thomas Fanshaw; Katherine, who was married at the age of sixteen to Sir Rowland Hayward, a clothworker, Lord Mayor in 1571; Alice, the wife of William Harris; and Ursula, the wife of William Butler. His will,50 dated the 22nd day of May in the 33rd year of the reign of Elizabeth, was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury by his executors Sir Rowland Hayward, Knt., John Smythe, Thomas Fanshaw, and Mr. Thomas Aldowsey.

To Thomas, Katherine, and William, the children of his daughter Joan, wife of Thomas Fanshaw, and of his late wife Mary, the sum of 500 to be equally divided.

His widow, the daughter of Sir Andrew Judde, Knt., before mentioned, survived him, living at her late husband's house in London, until her decease in 1593. Her will was proved 11 May 1598 in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury.

To her daughter Joan (Mrs. Fanshaw), her best chain, a tablecloth of damask of the Story of Susanna, of five yards, a double towel, a cupboard cloth, two dozen napkins, and 200 in money

Then follow bequests of 20 each to her sons-in-law, Sir Rowland Hayward, Thomas Fanshaw,  William Butler, and to William Harris...

Sister of Sir Thomas SMITHE, Lady Joanna FANSHAW had sons WILLIAM, and
THOMAS . In last paragraph reference is not clear as to if there are one or two
sisters that are Lady FANSHAWEs named in Will of Sir Thomas SMYTH
: From the following information, and the language in the Will, it appears there must be two
sisters who married a FANSHAW, but another SMYTHE-FANSHAW marriage has
not been located. So no information on this RICHARD FANSHAW mentioned.
(He would have been born ca 1585-1610 if approx the same age as William and Thomas.)

Joan, the third daughter of Thomas SMYTHE of Ostenhanger. Co. Kent, was the second wife (m ca 1579) of Thomas FANSHAW (b. 1533) of Fanshaw Gate, etc. - Thomas Fanshaw was the father of Sir Henry, by his first wife Mary BOURCHIER. So this Joan SMYTHE was Sir Henry’s step-mother.

FANSHAW lineage shows Joan’s sons by Thomas FANSHAW as *William (Of Parsloes Co Essex and the Manor of Great Singleton Co Lane), Thomas (Sir Thomas of Jenkins and the Manor of Barking. Co Essex). Phillip b. 1593 died young, and daughters Alice, Katherine and Margaret. (Margaret married AYLOFFE, a name connected to Virginia)

*William’s wife was Katherine, 2nd dau of Sir John WOLSTENHOLME, oF Nostell Prior Co York. The WOLSTENHOLMEs had very early connections to the Virginia Colony.

Mary's siblings (children of Sir Henry FANSHAW and Elizabeth SMYTHE) were:

1. Sir THOMAS, Viscount FANSHAW of Dromore Ulster in Peerage of Ireland. m. (1) Ann ALINGTON      (2)Elizabeth COCKAYNE

Research Note: Headrights

For the purpose of stimulating immigration and settlement, the London Co. ordained that any person who paid his own way to Virginia should be assigned 50 acres of land for "his owne personal adventure". And if he transported or imported "at his owne cost" one or more persons, he should be paid for each person 50 acres of land. Among the headrights are found persons of all classes, nobility and gentry, yeomantry, indentured servants (some of good family and connection in England) and negroes.

Nor is it to be assumed that the headright is necessarily an immigrant. Even men of prominence in the Colony, through a voyage or repeated voyages to England and return, appear as headrights of friends or relatives, who acquitted the cost of the passage in order to obtain the consequent land.

Sea captains were especially active in the acquisition of land through transportation of settlers ands they not infrequently acted conjointly with London Merchants. (Note: some FANSHAWs were "shippers" in London.) William BARKER, in assoc. w/Richard QUINEY and John SADLER patented great tracts at Brandon and MERCHANT’s HOPE, held by them and their heirs for nearly a century. Does this tract called Merchant’s Hope have anything to do with the ship of the same name on which Richard Fanshawe arrived in 1635?

Location and Research Note: In 1636 New Norfolk was formed from Elizabeth City County, one of the original shires of Virginia. In 1637 New Norfolk was divided into Lower Norfolk County and Upper Norfolk County, encompasses what is now the cities of Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Virginia Beach. Chesapeake is the most direct descendant of Lower Norfolk County. The records housed in care of the Chesapeake’s Clark of the Circuit Court are the oldest records held by any of the four cities that were once Lower Norfolk County, they date back to 1637 and the first court held in the jurisdiction.


JOHN FANSHAW - Before 1699 - Virginia Connection??????

Will of Edmund Waller of Beaconsfield, County Bucks, dated 30 Aug 1699 and proved 18 July 1700. It pays an annuity of 50lb/year to John Fanshaw among others. It also lists John Fanshaw of Inner Temple of London as one of the executors.

Waller’s Will is part of the Virginia Colonial Records collection, so he must have had some connection to the Virginia Colony.

Research Note: Northwest River Area

The Northwest River flows south into Currituck Co., NC from the Chesapeake area of Virginia, and crosses the VA/NC border at a point that is roughly northeast of the little town of Moyock in Currituck Co. The river continues generally southeast into Tulls Bay which opens into the North Landing River, which opens into Currituck Sound. (In 1779 petition signed by MOSES FANSHAW is regarding Tull Creek, which empties into Tull Bay)

(The Colonial Records of NC, Vol. V, p. 239 ) Mention of a court case in which Joseph BOWRING and Robert TUCKER are accused of the murder of John FANSHAW, all of Currituck.  John FANSHAW was beaten on Jan. 20, 1720 and died on Jan. 23, 1720 in Currituck.

October Court 1748. Son Michael O'NEAL, daughters Thomazin TAYLOR, Sarah FANSHAW, son John STEVENS, daughter Mary STEVENS, all my children. Thomas and John STEVENS Executors. Test. Thomas TAYLOR, Gilbert PORTWOOD, James MERCY. 

Sarah STEVENS was probably the wife of Moses 3? FANSHAW.  In Moses’ Will, besides naming wife Sarah, the executors are his son Moses and Michael O'NEAL. Stephen STEVENS' Will names his daughter Sarah FANSHAW, and "son" Michael O'NEAL.  Maybe Michael O'NEAL had been married to one of Sarah STEVENS' sisters and the sister had died? Micheal O'NEAL is listed on the 1755 Currituck Tithables. On 1779 Tax List is: Oneel Michael  2870. Both lists are alphabetical, not by location. There are several later references to O'NEAL (O'NEEL) in deeds, etc. that are after 1800. A few reference POYNER and JARVIS who in area related tax records appear consistently in immediate proximity to the FANSHAWs. Some other deed references to Michael O'NEEL's line, or O'NEELS line.

CAPT. FANSHAW - GEORGIA REFERENCE 1766

1766 Georgia royal governor James Wright wrote the British Board of Trade about the continuing problems caused by the Stamp Act:

"On the Second instant His Majesties Ship Speedwell arrived at a very Seasonable time, as by Capt. Fanshaw's taking the [stamped] Papers on Board the King's Ship I was Enabled to order up the Officers & Rangers from Fort George, and then Muster'd 70 Officers & Men here. Capt. Fanshawe also brought his Ship up, and Promised me the Assistance of 20 Men, and Several Gentlemen & others also Promised to Join me if the Villains Should come to Town. For Notwithstanding I had been able to disperse a great Number, yet two hundred & forty of them were then within 3 Miles, and being much Exasperated against me for Sending the Papers away, had agreed to Come to me & demand that I Should Order Order the Papers back, to be delivered up to them, and if I did not, they were to Shoot me. This was avowedly declared by Some of them, and on Tuesday the 4th instant they actually had the Insolence to appear near the Town Common with their Arms & Colours, but finding I had near 100 Men that I Could Command & depend upon, & being told that Many would Join me as Volunteers, after Staying there about 3 Hours, I was Informed they differed amonst themselves & begun to disperse, and I have now the great Satisfaction to Acquaint your Lordships that they are all dispersed. But my Lords Some of them declared they were offered assistance from Carolina to the amount of from 4 to 500, & if they came Would be ready to return again. If none come from thence I hope to Remain quiet. Possibly your Lordships may be Surprized that I have not mentioned Calling out the Militia, but I have too much Reason to think I Should have armed more against me than for me, & that Volunteers were the only People I Could have any Confidence in or dependance upon. . . ."

CAPT. FANSHAW - GEORGIA REFERENCE 1766
1766 Georgia royal governor James Wright wrote the British Board of Trade about the continuing problems caused by the Stamp Act:

"On the Second instant His Majesties Ship Speedwell arrived at a very Seasonable time, as by Capt. Fanshaw's taking the [stamped] Papers on Board the King's Ship I was Enabled to order up the Officers & Rangers from Fort George, and then Muster'd 70 Officers & Men here. Capt. Fanshawe also brought his Ship up, and Promised me the Assistance of 20 Men, and Several Gentlemen & others also Promised to Join me if the Villains Should come to Town. For Notwithstanding I had been able to disperse a great Number, yet two hundred & forty of them were then within 3 Miles, and being much Exasperated against me for Sending the Papers away, had agreed to Come to me & demand that I Should Order Order the Papers back, to be delivered up to them, and if I did not, they were to Shoot me. This was avowedly declared by Some of them, and on Tuesday the 4th instant they actually had the Insolence to appear near the Town Common with their Arms & Colours, but finding I had near 100 Men that I Could Command & depend upon, & being told that Many would Join me as Volunteers, after Staying there about 3 Hours, I was Informed they differed amonst themselves & begun to disperse, and I have now the great Satisfaction to Acquaint your Lordships that they are all dispersed. But my Lords Some of them declared they were offered assistance from Carolina to the amount of from 4 to 500, & if they came Would be ready to return again. If none come from thence I hope to Remain quiet. Possibly your Lordships may be Surprized that I have not mentioned Calling out the Militia, but I have too much Reason to think I Should have armed more against me than for me, & that Volunteers were the only People I Could have any Confidence in or dependance upon. . . ."
