----------
From DeWayne B. Johnson on 15 Jun 2010:

I think my nickname "Doc" dates back at least 75 years, perhaps to 1935. I was 15 years old. My older brother Clifford and I worked on my uncle's (George M. Talbot Dairy) dairy ranch in Burbank. Neither of us milked cows but we did almost everything else -- washing bottles, pasteurizing and bottling milk, churning of buttermilk, pitching hay, mucking out the muck, and much more. Clifford called me "Doc" and I called him "Joe." Uncle George had a hay ranch out east (?) of Lancaster and pasture land down near Irvine. I rode mules and horses in the course of my work. Fell off more than once, brushed off by low-hanging branches. Otherwise, I am no horseman!

Clifford's nickname never stuck, but mine remained with me even up to today! I earned a real doctorate at UCLA in mass communications and education in 1955. Throughout my professional career as a journalist and professor of journalism, my colleagues and students have hailed me as "Doc." They still do. It feels good to be one of them and not an outsider!

I run the risk of bragging a bit -- two Pulitzer Prizes with a select few on the LATimes editorial staff, and twice honored by the California Publishers Association as THE outstanding professor of journalism in the state of California. (Oh, I am shameless!) So I may be something of a legend, my ego says, but that truly remains to be seen.

• Moved: Moved to Long Beach from Burbank, 1941, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States.

2. Alexander L Johnson,2 3 4 5 son of John Jacob Johnson 3 15 16 17 and Bodil Marie Jensen,3 18 19 was born on 28 Sep 1885 in Seward, Nebraska, United States, died on 30 May 1930 in North Platte, Lincoln, Nebraska, United States at age 44, and was buried on 3 Jun 1930 in Hope Cemetery, Newman Grove, Madison, Nebraska, United States. The cause of his death was Heart attack resulting from ptomaine poisoning. Other names for Alexander were Alex Johnson and Alexander Johnson.

Death Notes: From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska, newspaper: "The community was shocked and saddened Friday morning by the news of the sudden death of Alex Johnson while he was visiting relatives at North Platte. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and family left here on Saturday, May 24 for a visit with her sister and her family at North Platte. On Thursday Mr. Johnson was taken very sick with ptomanine [sic] poisoning. A physician was called and he began to improve. Friday morning he was able to be up, but complained of a headache and was lying down. Mrs. Johnson had gone to another room to get some medicine for his headache and was gone only a very short time but when she returned he had passed away. Physicians were called, but could do nothing, death being due to a sudden heart attack."

General Notes: Occupation: Carpenter. From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska newspaper: "...They established their home in Newman Grove [in 1912] and have resided her continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken."

From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

"(The 'L' in my father's name was not an initial because that was the 'name' and hence takes no period.)...

"Today the mini-park near downtown [Newman Grove] includes the bandstand where my father played oboe in the town band...

"That is the man I tagged along with to his woodshop down near the granary. From that woodshop I still smell the gragrant homemade glues in their heating pots, I see the wood grains from rare specimens that went into carefully crafted table tops, bowls, cabinetry, and hear the scrabbling of tiny rodent feet fleeing for cover when the doors we opened.

"I tagged along as he walked the streets in town, greeted heartily by everyone he met. I know now that as a carpenter he built many of the buildings, homes, in town and surrounding vicinities."

DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of him on 8/17/1986:

"His hands were heavily wrinkled, tanned, scarred; his fingernails were ragged and never seemed quite rid of the residue of the day's labors. The brown, blood-clot areas under the nails were evidence of the beating the hands took as he hammered, pried, used his sinewy strength to build homes, schools, churches, and his artistic touch on fine cabinetry, delicate inlaid wooden trays, a variety of carved or lathe-turned items that would today be labeled 'examples of wood artisans, Early American Primitive to Post-World War I.'

"This carpenter's hands were gentle. To a small boy's hands they were tremendous, warm and snug retreats during proud walks on the streets of Newman Grove, Nebraska, where Alexander L Johnson was known far and wide as 'Alex.' (The 'L' had no period' it stood for nothing. To those who insisted it had to stand for 'something,' a concession was made: Lloyd, or possibly Loyd. One 'L' or two, it made no difference because truly it stood for nothing.

"I remember those hands as he warmly shook hands of others during those prized walks: Alex was clearly loved, respected by everyone, those townfolks with the funny foreign-sounding names...

"It flits through my mind to recall his hands, the dancing fingers as he played the oboe in the town band during its summertime concerts in the park band shell. And the strong, mascuiline right hand and the convincingly feminine left hand as 'Alex' costumed himself half male and half female for some annual celebration and parade down Main Street.

"Alex and his skills were in great demand; it is likely that some of the rural schools he built -- some of them single-handedly -- still stand today in some corners of Nebraska where Alex Johnson has long been forgotten. And Alex Johnson's houses absolutely remain, with their fashionable gingerbread of the time, and the curved staircases with their fancy railings, the hardwood floors, the weighted window sashes, and the trademark cabinetry.

"Alex had a hand in building the brick schools of Newman Grove, primary grads and high school For a short period he even taught wood shop at the high school (probably as a substitute teacher)...

"The lights went out for a 10-year-old boy on a spring day in 1930 when his father died in a farm house at North Platte, Nebraska.

"The bewilderment remains to this day -- one day so much alive, so much enjoying the fishing, the catching, the eating, and the next day quiet whispers, somber tip-toeing so as not to disturb. (The doctor surmised the death was caused by ingesting spoiled fish.) The return to Newman Grove on a bright Sunday morning, the church bells ringing, and still the 10-year-old could not understand."

Research Notes: Middle initial L does not stand for anything. It is simply L without a period. It may not be on his birth certificate.

Excerpts from obituary in Newman Grove weekly newspaper, fully quoted in a letter to daughter Janine Johnson 8/17/1986, p. 4:

Alexander L. Johnson was born in Seward county, Nebraska September 28, 1885 and and passed away at the home of relatives at North Platte May 30, 1930 at the age of 44 years and 8 months.

On february 12, 1912 [actually Feb. 14, Valentine's Day] he was married at Grand Island to Lulu [Lula Mae] Talbot of Polk. They established their home in Newman Grove [occupying the house recently vacated by Conrad Erickson and known forever as 'the Erickson House'] and have resided here continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough, conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken.

General Notes: From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

"I remember her heating gladirons in the oven and ironing clothing and linens by the light of kerosene lanterns. That same oven turned out freshly baked bread unlike any found in the markets of today...

"My mother played the piano for pleasure--hers and the family's. I can also hear the tinkling notes of 'Angel Voices Ever Near'--and weep at the memory.

"She died in 1942 at age 49 in Long Beach, Calif. She should be remembered for many things (pecan pies!), but a couple of memories stand out.

"There were the Saturday night family baths in that big galvanized tub in the kitchen, filled with hot water from the top of the wood stove. My turn came late and the water was fairly well saturated with [grime] of the weeke when my turn arrived. I never saw my parents as they bathed spared major destruction."
---------
Son DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of his mother, Lula Mae, on 8/17/1986:

"The 12 years of widowhood -- it seems a short time now but a long time then in the context of a boy growing through the teens -- for my mother were mostly years spent scraping to stay alive, taking in boarders, working on my uncle's [George M. Talbot's] dairy ranch, slaving at Jergen's soap factory. She even worked for a time as cook and housekeeper for the movie stars Frances Dee and Joel McCrea.

"Very soon after Alex's death the 37-year-old widow, three children, cousin Owen Mulholland made their way across country in the Model A Ford open touring car to California, Burbank. We came at the invitation of Uncle George M. Talbot, owner of the Talbot Dairy.

"Of that trip, the rust-orange dust accumulated while crossing Arizona evokes the strongest memory. There were flat tires, how many I have no way of recalling...

"Lula and Aunt Fannie Talbot belonged to the Bon Ami social club, primarily devoted to bridge. (The tagalong youngsters popped popcorn and played street games: tag, run sheep run, hide and seek, totally inocuous by today's standards.) Most of the Bon Ami members were married couples. It was that group that constituted the bulk of Lula's contacts, leading to the job at Jergens soap and to acquaintanceship with widower Frank Joanis, a Burbank grocer.

"Their dating continued for several years until Joanis quite suddenly married another woman whom he had recently met.

"The move to Long Beach was occasioned by supposed house maid opportunities that never materialized...

"My mother died at 49, the victim of a fad starvation diet that was supposed to reduce the size of a goiter, more imaginary than real (Real enough but of no consequence.)

"She was a loving mother, ill-equipped to help a young man, Clifford, and a growing boy, DeWayne, to understand the changes in their male bodies...

"To put things a bit into historical perspective, World War II was well along when Lula died. The Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor had occurred six months previous, Dec. 7, 1941. Lorna and I were married on Aug. 22, 1942, soon after her death in June."

Noted events in her life were:

• Census: 12 Jun 1900, Pleasant Home Precinct, Polk, Nebraska, United States. 26

• Moved: Moved to Newman Grove, Nebraska, Abt 1912, Newman Grove, Madison, Nebraska, United States.

• Census: U.S., 9 Jan 1920, Newman Grove, Madison, Nebraska, United States. 21 (Household Member)

• Moved: Moved to Long Beach, California, 1941, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States.

• Moved: Moved to Burbank, California from Nebraska, Fall 1930, Burbank, Los Angeles, California, United States.

• Residence: 2415 E. 11th St., 1942, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States.

Alexander was born on 28 Sep 1885 in Seward, Nebraska, United States, died on 30 May 1930 in North Platte, Lincoln, Nebraska, United States at age 44, and was buried on 3 Jun 1930 in Hope Cemetery, Newman Grove, Madison, Nebraska, United States.

4. John Jacob Johnson,3 15 16 17 son of Lauritz Jørgensen 27 and Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen,3 was born on 15 Aug 1854 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark, was christened on 27 Aug 1854 in Bov (Bau), Schlesvig, Denmark, died on 29 Sep 1929 in Fort Dodge, Webster, Iowa, United States28 at age 75, and was buried in Union Cemetery, Humboldt, Humboldt, Iowa, United States.29 Other names for John were George J. Johnson, J. J. Johnson, and Jorgen Jacob Jorgensen.

Birth Notes: 1900 Census has John J Johnson and his parents born in Germany. Mary reported born in Denmark. Census has born August 1844, which differs from the obituary. His obituary has his birthdate as 15 August 1854. Mark Johnson has a source with 27 August 1854. It is my guess that 27 August 1854 was the date of his christening.

Obituary says "Bau, Denmark," but there is no such place. However, "Bau" is the German for Bov in Sonderjylland (South Jutland) county on the Jutland peninsula in south Denmark. The main town is Padborg. Since Bau/Bov was held by Germany from 1864 to 1920, that explains the discrepancy. Bov was Danish at the time John Jacob was born.

The city of Bov (German Bau) in the area of Flensborg in Denmark was the site of the Battle of Bov, which began the First Schleswig War on 9 April 1848. Schleswig-Holstein was trying to separate from Denmark. Danish troops defeated a combined force of German, Austrian and Prussian troops. The First Schleswig War lasted from 1848 through 1851, resulting in a Danish victory. The Second Schleswig War erupted on 1 February 1864, when Prussian forces crossed the border into Schleswig. That war ended on 30 October 1864, when Denmark ceded the duchies of Schleswig, Holstein and Saxe-Lauenburg to Prussia and Austria. The Schleswig Plebiscites in 1919 and 1920 resulted in the return of the Aabenraa district to Denmark.

Death Notes: Died in St Marys Hospital in Fort Dodge. His residence was in Paton, Iowa. He was a retired farmer at the time of his death. The handwritten notes on his death certificate are difficult to decipher. The best guess is that he was in the hospital from 25 Sept 1929 to 29 Sept 1929, with death about 8:50 p.m. Exploratory surgery had been conducted on 28 Sept 1929. The immediate cause of death was shock due to surgery after attempting relief from an obstruction having to do with his liver (?). A contributory cause was "carcinonotisis."

His death certificate gives his parents' names as Lauretz Johnson (b. Denmark) and Carloine Casperson (b. Germany). The informant was Wm. J. Johnson [his son] of Plover, Ia.

Burial Notes: From FindAGrave.com:
John immigrated in 1881 from Germany or Denmark. He married Mary in 1884 probably in Illinois where Lena was born. In 1900 they were the parents of 7 children, all living: Lena, Alexander, Hannah, William, Charlie, Minnie, and Mary.

General Notes: Grandson DeWayne B. Johnson wrote about his grandfather Johnson thus on 8/17/1986:

"I have a darker image of my father's father [than his memory of his Talbot grandparents], both dark and dim. He died when I was 9 [in 1929] but I truly can't say I remember him remotely well. Grandmother Johnson was a sterner figure, in my memory, than Grandmother Talbot. I feel now that what I did as a boy often seemed to displease her. I know I was supposed to care for her but I am not at all sure that I did.

"As with Grandparents Talbot, we also visited those grandparents but I cannot conjure up a good image of their home except for a romanticized notion of Tiffany-type lamps; etched-glass front, side and back doors; screened porch for summertime sleeping and that's about it."

Research Notes: Eldest son of Laurtiz and Caroline Johnson.

The Iowa marriage record for Minnie Johnson and Daniel Urquhart at FamilySearch.org gives Minnie's father as George Johnson (mother Mary Johnson). Although J. J. Johnson's obituary gives his name as J. J. Johnson, and family records have John Jacob Johnson, other sources indicate that he was also known as George J. Johnson. His obituary has John J. Johnson. He appeared as John J. Johnson in the 1910 Census.

Mark Johnson's research has found his name as Jorgen Jacob Jorgensen (Possiblly after Lauritz's and Caroline's fathers). Birth records list J.J.'s father as Lauritz Jorgensen, born Denmark. Mother listed as Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen, born Denmark.

Obituary of John J. Johnson

John Jacob Johnson was the eldest son of Lauritz and Caroline Johnson and was born in Bau, Denmark on August 15, 1854, and passed away at the Mercy hospital in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Sept. 29, 1929, at the age of 75 years, 1 month and 15 days.

He was ill at his home in Paton for six weeks when his condition became such that it was necessary to take him to the hospital for special treatment, but little could be done to relieve him.

The funeral services were held at Humboldt last Thursday afternoon. Many from West Bend and Rodman were in attendance.

He was confirmed in the Danish Luthern faith at 16 years of age. In 1881 he came to America with his parents, who settled near Gilmore City, Ill. The following year he became a citizen of the United States.

At the age of thirty years he was married to Mary Johnson on Dec. 22, 1883. To this union ten children were born, all living with the exception of two who passed away in infancy.

He farmed for a number of years in Nebraska and in 1897 came to Iowa where he farmed at West Bend and Rodman. In 1912 he retired and moved to Rodman, later moving to California. Five years ago Mr. and Mrs. Johnson came to Paton, Iowa, where they have since made their home with their daughter, Mrs. O. E. Pearson. He was devoted to his family always thinking of their welfare. He was temperate in his habits and a good example to his family and to those about him. There remains to mour his loss his loving wife and eight devoted children; also six brothers and four sisters and thirteen grandchildren. The children are: John C. Johnson, Chas. J. Johnson, Mrs. Hannah Shriner, all of Long Beach, Cal.; Alex L. Johnson, Newman Grove, Nebr.; Caroline K. Klinge, Curlew, Iowa; Mrs. Minnie Urquhart, Rodman; Wm. J. Johnson, Plover; and Mrs. Mary Pearson, Paton, Iowa.

And now the time has come when hosts of friends far and near have been called upon to part with an esteemed friend and a loving husband and father.

Although the parting has come he has left us with an assurance that he has faith in us in whom he has believed and trusted that we will carry on to successful completion the work he has been forced to leave unfinished. The thought of him watching us from the ramparts of heaven should be an inspiration to us as friends and relatives to carry on reverently and sincerely and to make the outstanding characteristics of his life, which were faith in all things good, honesty and punctuality in all his walks of life and then his benediction will be: "All things whatsoever you would that men should do unto you do ye even so to them."

Medical Notes: From Obituary in newspaper: "He was ill at his home in Paton for six weeks when his condition became such that it was necessary to take him to the hospital for special treatment, but little could be done to relieve him."

Noted events in his life were:

• Religion: Lutheran.

General Notes: Grandson DeWayne B. Johnson wrote about his grandmother Mary B. Jensen Johnson thus on 8/17/1986:

"I have a darker image of my father's father [than his memory of his Talbot grandparents], both dark and dim. He died when I was 9 but I truly can't say I remember him remotely well. Grandmother Johnson was a sterner figure, in my memory, than Grandmother Talbot. I feel now that what I did as a boy often seemed to displease her. I know I was supposed to care for her but I am not at all sure that I did.

"As with Grandparents Talbot, we also visited those grandparents but I cannot conjure up a good image of their home except for a romanticized notion of Tiffany=-type lamps; etched-glass front, side and back doors; screened porch for summertime sleeping and that's about it."

Noted events in her life were:

Burial Notes: Talbot, Margaret B., b11-8-1857; d12-10-1935

General Notes: Note from DeWayne B. Johnson on family tree from around 1998:
"(DBJ's sister, Dorothy Peters, was under the impression that Margaret was a cousin of Samuel Clemens' [Mark Twain's mother or one of his sisters.]

---------
Grandson DeWayne B. Johnson wrote about Grandmother Talbot (Margaret Burrows Talbot) thus on 8/17/1986:

"My vague recollection, substantiated by I know not what, is that on one occasion when my family was visiting the ranch [in North Platte, Nebraska] Grandmother Talbot and I got mired in quick sand and she held me aloft as we sank into the gooey substance. needless to say, we were rescued, or I wouldn't be able to write this way to you today.

"Folklore has it also that she was gifted by remarkable superhuman strength on an occasion when a wagon collapsed on one of her sons and she lifted the entire load by the wagon axle until he could be pulled free. An impossible task under ordinary circumstances.

"I remember the smells of her farm kitchen and helping with the churning of butter. We trimmed the wicks of the kerosene lanterns. A small kitchen garden seemed always to be producing some good things to eat. I don't remember her passing."
---------

Research Notes: From FamilySearch.org
1880 U.S. census, born in Illinois; parents born in Ireland.

Based on that 1880 information, she is probably the 12-year-old Margaret Burrows who is in the 1870 census in Duncan, Mercer, Illinois with her parents and siblings. If that is the case, her parents were John and Martha Burrows, both born in Ireland.

Noted events in her life were:

• Census: 7 Jun 1870, Duncan, Mercer, Illinois, United States.

• Census: 1880, Duncan, Mercer, Illinois, United States.

• Census: 12 Jun 1900, Pleasant Home Precinct, Polk, Nebraska, United States.

Margaret married Absolom Owen Talbot Jr. 3 23 24 on 4 Jul 1875.

8. Lauritz Jørgensen,27 son of Jørgen Christensen 55 and Helene Nissen,56 57 was born about Jun 1831, was christened on 26 Jun 1831,58 and died bef <1900>. Other names for Lauritz were Lauretz Johnson, Lauritz Johnson, and59 Louis Johnson.

Research Notes: Name Lauritz Johnson from published obituary of John J. Johnson d. 1929. First and last name may not have been Lauritz Johnson originally. Some family oral traditions hold that the name was originally Jorgensen. The death certificate of his son J. J. Johnson gives his name, probably provided by his grandson William J. Johnson, as "Lauretz Johnson."

Mark Johnson (May 2012) has a good amount of information about the family of a Lauritz and Caroline Johnson, who lived in Gibson City, Illinois after immigrating to the United States in 1880. It is likely that those persons are this same family. That family was from Schleswig-Holstein, which makes sense, as there is some confusion about Denmark vs. Germany, and the town of Bov (Bau) in which John J. Johnson was born is in Schleswig, which changed hands over the years. The 1910 U.S. census shows J. J. Johnson immigrating in 1881.

U.S. Census records indicate that Lauritz and Caroline had 12 children.
--
Parents of a Lauritz Jorgensen baptized on 26 Jun 1831 in Svenstrup were Jorgen Christensen and Helene Nissen.

---------
Denmark Burials, 1640-1917 (FamilySearch.org) yields another, yet less likely, possibility:
Lauritz Johann Johannsen
b.
d. 7 Jan 1870 in Ketting, Sonderborg, Denmark
Buried 13 Jan 1870
Father Gustav Johann Johannsen
Mother Anne Larsdatter/Larsdotter

Noted events in his life were:

• Emigrated: from Denmark to the United States, 1881, <Illinois>, United States.

Lauritz married Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen 3 on 28 May 1854 in Bov, Åbenrå, Sønderjylland, Denmark.60 Anna was born <Jul 1835> in <Holstein>, Germany <Denmark>, was christened on 9 Aug 1835 in Bov (Bau), Schlesvig, Denmark,61 and died aft <1910> in <Humboldt, Iowa>, United States. Other names for Anna were Caroline <Casper>, Caroline Casperson, Caroline Caspison, Caroline Cosparsen, Caroline Kasperson, and Caroline Kepperson.

Marriage Notes: Mark Johnson has found evidence that Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen, born July 1835, christened 9 Aug 1835 in Bov, Flensborg, Schlesvig, Denmark, married Lauritz Jorgensen, b. 1831, on 28 May 1854 in Bov, Schlesvig, Denmark. We are making the assumption that this is the same couple.

Children from this marriage were:

4         i.  John Jacob Johnson (born on 15 Aug 1854 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark - died on 29 Sep 1929 in Fort Dodge, Webster, Iowa, United States)

         ii.  Caroline W. Johnson was born <1857> and died on 28 Jul 1940 in Illinois, United States at age 83.

        iii.  Wilhelm Lauritz Jorgensen was born in <Denmark> and died on 13 Jan 1866 in Tonder, Denmark.

         iv.  John Johnson was born on 22 Oct 1862 in <Denmark>, died on 12 Apr 1933 in Drummer, Ford, Illinois, United States at age 70, and was buried in Gibson City, Ford, Illinois, United States. Another name for John was Johon Johnson.

          v.  Anna Maria Helena Jorgensen

         vi.  Cherst Johnson was born in 1867 in Denmark.

        vii.  Andrew C. Johnson was born <1870> in Denmark.

       viii.  Matilda C. Johnson was born on 21 Apr 1871 in <Taglesbraw>, Denmark, died on 31 Aug 1938 in Gibson City, Ford, Illinois, United States at age 67, and was buried in Gibson City, Ford, Illinois, United States. Another name for Matilda was Matilda Jensen.

         ix.  Lena Margaret Johnson was born on 12 Apr 1874 in Denmark, died on 2 Nov 1934 in <Corvallis>, Benton, Oregon, United States62 at age 60, and was buried on 5 Nov 1934 in Odd Fellows Cemetery, <Corvallis>, Benton, Oregon, United States.

          x.  Louis L. Johnson was born on 12 Sep 1875 in Schlesvig, Denmark, was christened <12 Oct 1875>, and died on 14 Oct 1958 in New Jersey, United States at age 83.


9. Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen,3 daughter of Johann Jacob Caspersen 60 63 and Carolina Wilhelmine Beck,60 64 was born <Jul 1835> in <Holstein>, Germany <Denmark>, was christened on 9 Aug 1835 in Bov (Bau), Schlesvig, Denmark,61 and died aft <1910> in <Humboldt, Iowa>, United States. Other names for Anna were Caroline <Casper>, Caroline Casperson, Caroline Caspison, Caroline Cosparsen, Caroline Kasperson, and Caroline Kepperson.

Death Notes: A Caroline Johnson was living with her daughter Lena (Johnson) Hanson in Humboldt, Iowa, in 1910. That is quite likely this Caroline.

Research Notes: Family records of DeWayne B. Johnson have only the name Caroline, with her birthplace as Germany.

Mark Johnson (May 2012) has a good amount of information about the family of Lauritz and Caroline Johnson, who lived in Gibson City, Illinois after immigrating to the United States in 1880. It is likely that those persons are this same family. That family was from Schleswig-Holstein.Census records indicate that they had 12 children.

Noted events in her life were:

• Emigrated: from Denmark to the United States, 1881, <Illinois>, United States. (Witness)

• Census: U.S., 1910, Humboldt, Iowa, United States. 66

Anna married Lauritz Jørgensen 27 on 28 May 1854 in Bov, Åbenrå, Sønderjylland, Denmark.60 Lauritz was born about Jun 1831, was christened on 26 Jun 1831,58 and died bef <1900>. Other names for Lauritz were Lauretz Johnson, Lauritz Johnson, and59 Louis Johnson.


10. Jens Christian Jensen,3 16 38 39 son of Jens Jensen Fjeldrad and Johanne Marie Christensdatter,67 was born on 11 Apr 1822 in Ørsø, Dronninglund Sogn (Brønderslev), Nordjylland, Denmark,68 was christened on 12 Apr 1822 in Ørsø, Dronninglund Sogn (Brønderslev), Nordjylland, Denmark,69 died on 21 Feb 1876 in <Hov>, Hals Sogn, (Aalborg), Nordjylland, Denmark70 at age 53, and was buried on 29 Feb 1876 in <Hals Kirkegaard, Hals>, (Aalborg), Nordjylland, Denmark. Another name for Jens was Jens Christian Jensen Ørsøe.

Christening Notes: Jens Chr. born the 11 apr., 1822, baptized at home the 12 Apr., son of Jens Jensen Fjelrad ejer (owner) of Kobber Vandmølle (Water-mill) and wife Johanne Marie Christensdatter, Ørsøe - Godfathers and - mothers: Anne Christensdatter Tveddegaard, Johanne Marie Poulsdatter, Ørsøe, Christen Mikkelsen, Store Fælden, Jens Christian Mikkelsens datter, Ørsøe og Knud Christensen, Ørsøe Mølle.

Death Notes: A translation of the death notice from his widow Ane Cathrine published in the Aalborg Stiftstidende on 24 and 25 February 1876:
Announcement
That my dear, loved husband, my 11 children loved father (the loved father of my 11 children), Dannebrogsmand Jens Christian Jensen, is passed away the 21 Feb. Announced herewith of his deep bereaved widow and children. - The funeral will take place from the home Tuesday the 29 Feb. at 1o'clock.
Hou Skov (Wood), the 22 Feb. 1876
Ane Cathrine Jensen,
Born Hansen

Burial Notes: It is the opinion of Finn H. Thomsen that Jens Christian was buried in the Hals Church cemetery.

Research Notes: From Donald M. Johnson's letter 23 July 1972 to his sister Alice (Johnson) Hickerson:
Dronninglund Church (old castle church) records for 1851 contain: "Married on June 20, 1851, at three o'clock, the bachelor Jens Christian Jensen of Dorf, 29 years, and the girl, Ane Cathrine Hansdatter of Asaa, 21 years. Sponsors: Lars Sorensen and Lars Peter Nielsen of Asaa." Records exist showing that family bought a house (No. 4 f of Hou) at Hou, Hals Parish, Kjaer District, on June 11, 1866. Hou and Hov are the same place.
---
Note: In 2011, the current researcher inadvertently misidentified Jens Christian Jensen as the man of the same name born on 21 Oct 1821 in Bolle, christened on 28 Oct 1821. That Jens Christian's parents were Jens Hansen Smed and Christiane Jensdatter. Please do not make that same mistake.

Subsequently, in 2017, Mr. Thomsen mistakenly identified his parents as Jens Jensen and Mette Nielsdatter, with a birthdate and place for Jens Christian of 23 Dec 1821 in Asaa. A rough translation of notes provided by Finn H. Thomsen on 24 Sep 2017:
"1821 - Born the 23 Dec. in Asaae Bye [Asaa town], Dronninglund parish, baptized the same day 23 Dec., son of lodger Jens Jensen and Mette Nielsdatter. Godparents: Anna Larsdatter from the farm "Knirren" in West Melholt, Johanne Marie Pousdatter, Ørsøe, Hans Rasmussen, Godiks Pedersen from Ørsøe and Mads Jensen from Skrydsholt." Mr. Thomsen obtained this information from the Dunninglund church records for 1813-1829, bulletin 105. This, however, is also a different person.

Mr. Thomsen's further research in 2017 revealed that our family's Jen Christian Jensen, Dannesbrogsmand (see the death announcement by his widow), was born 11 Apr 1822 in Ørsø, as is presented here. The deciding element was the fact that Jens Christian was living in Dorf at the time of his marriage. Only one of the three candidates was in Dorf in 1851. In addition, that same man was honored with the title Dannesbrogsmand after his service in the war against Germany. His widow gave him that title in her published announcement of his death.

Noted events in his life were:

• Census: Denmark, 18 Feb 1834, Dronninglund Sogn, (Hjørring), Nordjylland, Denmark. (Household Member)

• Census: Denmark, 1840.

• Enlisted: Danish army, 11th Battalion, 1 Jun 1844, Denmark. 71

Jens married Ane Cathrine Hansdatter 3 40 on 20 Jun 1851 in Dronninglund Kirke, Dronninglund, (Hjørring), Nordjylland, Denmark.76 Ane was born on 7 Jul 1831 in Høllet, Hals Sogn, Læso, Nordjylland, Denmark.77 Another name for Ane was Ane Cathrine Hansen.

Marriage Notes: Dronninglund Church (old castle church) records for 1851 contain: "Married on June 20, 1851, at three o'clock, the bachelor Jens Christian Jensen of Dorf, 29 years, and the girl, Ane Cathrine Hansdatter of Asaa, 21 years. Groomsmen: Lars Sorensen and Lars Peter Nielsen of Asaa." This record was found by Finn H. Thomsen (24 Sep 2017) and Donald M. Johnson (1972).

Research Notes: From FindaGrave.com:
"From the 1870 census John Burrows was born about 1829 in Ireland and emigrated to the United States at age 19. A family letter indicates he was born in Scotland. After emigrating, John Burrows found employment as a farm hand with the Weyerhauser lumber people in Pennsylvania. It is there that he met his future wife, Martha Downey, who was working as a house maid for the same company. John and Martha were married in Philadelphia in 1854. They came west to Mercer County, Illinois while their son, Samuel, was just a babe.

Unto this union seven children were born: Samuel Frank; Margaret born about 1858; Martha about 1862; Jean or Jane about 1864; Andrew about 1868; Sophrenia born May 1870; and Leah Rebecca born December 16, 1872."

16. Jørgen Christensen,55 son of Christen Pedersen, was born <1800>. Other names for Jørgen were Jorgen Sorensen and Jorgen Christensen Sorensen.

Research Notes: Two children of Jorgen Christensen and Helene Nissen were born before their marriage date of 1830. There may have been two couples with the same names at the same approximate time and place.

His last name appear as either Christensen or Sorenson or both.

There is a baptism record for Anna Helena Jorgensen, 2 March 1828 in Svenstrup, Åbenrå-Sonderborg, Denmark with father Jorgen Chrestensen Sorensen and mother Helena Nissen, one for Maria Jorgensen 28 March 1834, same place, same parents, and another for Maren Jorgensen 12 Nov 1837, same place and parents. The dates and place appear to tie to Lauritz Jorgensen/Johnson, whose marriage record gives his father's name as "Jorgen Christensen Or Sorensen" with mother's name Helena.

A transcribed marriage record for Jørgen Christensen and Ellen Cathrine Nissen lists his father (Christen Pedersen) and has his age as 30.

Jørgen married Helene Nissen 56 57 on 27 Jun 1830 in Marstal, Svendborg, Denmark.57 Helene was born <1803>. Another name for Helene was Ellen Cathrine Nissen.

Marriage Notes: Marriage date may have been 20 June 1830

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Anna Maria Jorgensen was born <1820>.

         ii.  Jorgen Jorgensen was christened on 26 Jan 1823 in Svenstrup, Åbenrå (Åbenrå-Sonderborg), Denmark.

        iii.  Matthis Christensen was christened on 25 Sep 1825 in Svenstrup, Åbenrå (Åbenrå-Sonderborg), Denmark.

         iv.  Anna Helena Jorgensen was christened on 2 Mar 1828 in Svenstrup, Åbenrå (Åbenrå-Sonderborg), Denmark.

8         v.  Lauritz Jørgensen (born about Jun 1831 - died bef <1900>)

         vi.  Maria Jorgensen was christened on 28 Mar 1834 in Svenstrup, Åbenrå (Åbenrå-Sonderborg), Denmark.

        vii.  Maren Jorgensen was christened on 12 Nov 1837 in Svenstrup, Åbenrå (Åbenrå-Sonderborg), Denmark. Another name for Maren was Maren Sorensen.


17. Helene Nissen,56 57 daughter of Nis < > and < > < >, was born <1803>. Another name for Helene was Ellen Cathrine Nissen.

Helene married Jørgen Christensen 55 on 27 Jun 1830 in Marstal, Svendborg, Denmark.57 Jørgen was born <1800>. Other names for Jørgen were Jorgen Sorensen and Jorgen Christensen Sorensen.

18. Johann Jacob Caspersen,60 63 son of Peter Caspersen 100 101 and Hedewig Petersen,100 101 was born in 1798 and died <3 May 1869> in <Bylderup, Tønder, Denmark>100 at age 71. Another name for Johann was Jorgen Jacob Caspersen.

Death Notes: Death date in doubt. There is a death record for Johann Jacob Caspersen at age 71 on 3 May 1869 in Bylderup, Tønder, Denmark, but his wife's name is given as Caroline Hedewig Beck. Other records have "our" Johann Jacob's wife as Caroline Wilhelmine Beck.

Research Notes: The transcribed death record gives his parents as Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. The only thing that throws this in doubt is Johann's wife's name, which is recorded as Caroline Hedewig Beck. Knowing how naming went in those days, however, it is possible that Caroline/Carolina had both Wilhelmine and Hedewig as middle names.

Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: goldmith(?).

Johann married Carolina Wilhelmine Beck 60 64 <18 Oct 1829> in <Bov (Bau), Åbenrå, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark>.64

Marriage Notes: A marriage record for 18 Oct 1829 in Bov gives the bride's name simply as Caroline Beck. It also lists the grooms parents as Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. Those are the same parents who appear in the death record for a Johann Jacob Casperson on 3 May 1869. The death record give's Johann's wife's name as Caroline Hedewig Beck. That was certainly the wife from 18 Oct 1829 in Bov. Caroline/Carolina's middle name(s) then are in doubt. Did she have both Wilhelmine and Hedewig? Or was this Johann's wife an entirely different person?

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Marie Hedewig Caspersen was christened on 30 Dec 1829 in Tonder, Tonder, Denmark.102

         ii.  Andreas Anton Caspersen was born <1831>.

        iii.  Vilhelm Sivert Jacob Caspersen was born <1833>. Another name for Vilhelm was Vilhelm Sivert Jacob Casspersen.

9        iv.  Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen (born <Jul 1835> in <Holstein>, Germany <Denmark> - died aft <1910> in <Humboldt, Iowa>, United States)

          v.  Hans Ferdinand Caspersen was christened on 8 Apr 1838 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark.

         vi.  Amalia Wilhelmine Caspersen was christened on 11 Apr 1841 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark.


19. Carolina Wilhelmine Beck,60 64 daughter of Andreas Beck 64 and Gerthro Johannsen,.101

Research Notes: There is a death record for a Johann Jacob Caspersen on 3 May 1869 in Bylderup, Tønder, Denmark, but his wife's name is given as Caroline Hedewig Beck. He may have been a different person from Carolina's husband. However, if the name Hedewig can be verified, Johann's parents were Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. Caroline's name could have had both Wilhelmine and Hedewig in the middle. Were there two separate women?

If these Caroline/Carolina persons are verified as one and the same, then the marriage on 18 Oct 1829 in Bov and her parents Andreas Beck and Gerthro Johannsen are also verified.

Carolina married Johann Jacob Caspersen 60 63 <18 Oct 1829> in <Bov (Bau), Åbenrå, Sønderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark>.64 Johann was born in 1798 and died <3 May 1869> in <Bylderup, Tønder, Denmark>100 at age 71. Another name for Johann was Jorgen Jacob Caspersen.

20. Jens Jensen Fjeldrad died before 1850.

• Occupation: miller, 1822, Ørsø, Dronninglund Sogn (Brønderslev), Nordjylland, Denmark. 67

Jens married Johanne Marie Christensdatter.67 Johanne was born about 1798.

Children from this marriage were:

10        i.  Jens Christian Jensen (born on 11 Apr 1822 in Ørsø, Dronninglund Sogn (Brønderslev), Nordjylland, Denmark - died on 21 Feb 1876 in <Hov>, Hals Sogn, (Aalborg), Nordjylland, Denmark)

The child from this marriage was:

          i.  Karen Marie Christiansdatter was born about 1834.


22. Hans Pedersen 3 was born in 1760 in <Laeso>, Denmark. Other names for Hans were Hans Pedersen Hollet and Hans Pedersen.

General Notes: From a letter by Donald Johnson (son of Marine Johnson) to Ardis Johnson Bynum on 5 June 1979:

"My great grandfather, Hans Pedersen Hollet, apparently was, for those times, a well-to-do man on the island of Laeso. He was 32 years older than my great grandmother Mette Kirstine Christensdatter, who was born about 1792. So my guess is that when Mette Kirstine died, her daughter's (Ane Cathrine) share of the estate was enough to enable her to buy the holdings at Hov. In 1866 Mette K. would have been 74 years old, and it may have taken a year or more to settle the estate, as there were five children born of this marriage. This is just a guess, but it does make sense that grandpa Jens Christian Jensen didn't get rich farming and fishing; or, at least, as readily as the Hollets could with their milling and timbering business."

Research Notes: Hans Pedersen and Mette Cathrine Christensdatter are recorded as parents of Ane Cathrine Hansdatter in the Dronninglund Church record for Ane Cathrine's marriage to Jens Christen on 20 Jun 1851.

Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: farmer, Laesø, Denmark. 74

Hans married Mette Kirstine Christensdatter.3 Mette was born in 1792 in Læsø, Nordjylland, Denmark and died about 1866 about age 74. Another name for Mette was Mette Cathrine Christensdatter.

        iii.  Hans Hansen was born in 1832.

         iv.  Dorthe Kirstine Hansdatter was born in 1833.

          v.  Christen Hansen was born in 1836.

Mette married Hans Pedersen.3 Hans was born in 1760 in <Laeso>, Denmark. Other names for Hans were Hans Pedersen Hollet and Hans Pedersen.

Richard Talbott 104 105 and Temperance Wells,106 107 was born on 28 Sep 1791 in Washington, Pennsylvania, United States, died on 22 Oct 1874 in Ironton, Lawrence, Ohio, United States at age 83, and was buried in Woodland Cemetery, Ironton, Lawrence, Ohio, United States.108 109

Hauntings at Woodlawn Cemetery (from http://www.forgottenoh.com/Counties/Lawrence/woodland.html ) :

"Woodland Cemetery in Ironton is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young woman whose abusive husband killed her by throwing her down a flight of stairs. A life-sized statue of her stands above her grave, and a handprint appears on its cheek even after the cheek has been sandblasted. The statue is supposed to be warm all the time, even in the coldest months.

"Woodlawn is also said to be home to the ghost of a Russian ballerina, who is entombed in one of the family mausoleums. Her likeness is carved into the mausoleum. On nights with full moons, it is said, you can see her dancing outside her final resting place.

"Dr. Joseph W. Lowry also haunts Woodland, seeking vengeance for his murder and mutilation. Dr. Lowry is often seen with his mother, who died from a broken neck when she was thrown from her carriage by a spooked horse. They walk together toward the cemetery gates but never make it past the highway bridge. "

Research Notes: Eliza Smith McMunn's lineage is dependent upon data obtained from Rod Blackman via www.familysearch.org 8/26/06. Appears to be well researched.

Charles Wells (1745-1815)

Charles Wells, born 06 Apr 1745 son of Benjamin Wells and Temperance Butler, married 27 Dec 1764 Michal Owings who died on 17 May 1783, two months after the birth of her 10th child. He then married 24 Jul 1784 Elizabeth Prather, daughter of Charles Prather and Ruth Tannehill. They had 12 children making a total of 22 for Charles. The 20th was named "Twenty Wells" b: 23 Nov 1798 and was described in her father's will. (also mentioned below) as "a helpless child". His 3rd child, Temperance Wells b: 01 Sep 1769 m: 1) Nathaniel Wells (b: 01 Apr 1762) and thus formed one of the Big Wells-Little Wells family bonds. Nathaniel Wells was a son of Alexander Wells and Leah Owings.

Sistersville [West Virginia]
"Charles Wells also had his ties with a town called Sistersville. The exact year that Charles Wells, the first settler of prominence, arrived in the area which is now called Sistersville, is not known. In 1800, he had surveyed a tract of 200 acres on the Ohio River. Charles Wells was a man of prominence, who was involved with the Virginia State Legislature between 1789 and 1810. Sometime around 1802, Wells left Wellsburg in a flatboat and floated down the Ohio River to settle one mile below where Sistersville now exists. In his cargo was the machinery for a horse mill which he established. He built a log cabin just south of where the Sistersville Golf Course is today.

"On May 9, 1813, he acquired four hundred acres of land on which Sistersville and close residential area is located. Soon after the first court of Tyler county was held in his home, Charles Wells died in 1815. His grave has this inscription: "Charles Wells, born April 6, 1745; died April 6, 1815: aged 70 yrs. and ten days; a native of Baltimore County Maryland; immigrated to Ohio County, Virginia, 1776. He was a practical farmer and the father of twenty-two children, two wives, ten by the first and twelve by the second."

"His will provided for each living member of his family. In 1815, the Wells sisters, (Sarah and Delilah Wells Grier) laid out the town on the land which they had inherited. Sistersville hence got its name from the seventeenth and eighteenth children of Charles Wells. The town was incorporated Feb. 2, 1839, under the name Sistersville and in 1845, the municipal government was established.

"Charles died April 16,1815 in Baltimore County, MD."

"JOPPA COURTHOUSE PETITION OF 1768

"The petitions for and against the removal of the county seat of Baltimore County from Joppa to Baltimore Town in 1768 are discussed at length in the Archives of Maryland, Vol. 61 (Appendix). Notices were posted in January, 1768 at the door of the courthouse in Joppa, at the church door of St. Paul's Parish, at the church door of St. Thomas' Parish, at the church door of St. John's Parish, at the church door of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. George's Parish, at the door of the chapel of St. John's Parish, and at the house called St. Thomas' Chapel in St. Thomas' Parish, by Absalom Butler and sworn to before the Honorable Benjamin Rogers. Notices were printed in English and German. Tabulations indicate that 2,271 voted for the removal of the courthouse, and 901 voted against it. (It should be noted that some signatures are missing due to the disintegration of the paper, and there also appears to be some who signed more than once.) Five years later, Harford County separated from Baltimore County and set up its court house at Bush (Harford Town) in 1774 and at Bel Air in 1782.

From Maryland Historical Magazine, vol. XVI, Baltimore, 1921, p. 238:

"Between various fords on the Main Falls of Patapsco River and fords on the lower reaches of Gwinn's Falls there existed in the eighteenth century three main roads, which, because their origin is mysterious and not explained by any known records, may possibly have been survivors of earlier military roads or even of Indian paths.

"In November 1733, the court appointed Charles Wells overseer of the road 'from the lower wadeing place of the main falls of Potapsco to the second wadeing place of Gwinns Falls' and of the road 'from the lower fording place of Gwinns Falls to Moales Point.' The lowest ford on the Main Falls of Patapsco River was situated in the immediate neighborhood of Relay or Avalon, near the site of the old Hockley Forge."

[The site of the Hockley Forge is on Levering Avenue in Halethorpe.]

Noted events in his life were:

• Appointed: overseer of certain roads along the Patapsco River, Nov 1733, Baltimore, Maryland, United States.

396. Captain Richard Owings "the Settler",163 164 165 son of Owen Humphrey of Llwyn du 208 209 and Margaret Vaughan,25 210 was born on 7 Mar 1659 in <Llwyn du>, Llanllugan, Montgomeryshire, Wales and died on 14 Nov 1716 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States) at age 57. Other names for Richard were Captain Richard Owen and Richard Owens.

Birth Notes: Most sources give Richard's birth date as 1660, but it may have been 7 Mar 1658/59 and in Wales.

Death Notes: Died intestate.

Research Notes: This researcher's note from 5 July 2014:

I find it likely that Richard Owings had two wives, both named Rachel. If I am right, it might be thus:
1) Racheal Roberts, m. abt 1682 in England or Wales. She was daughter of Robert Pugh (aka Pugh Roberts/Robert Pugh/Robert ap Hugh)
2) Rachel Beale/Beall, m. 4 Apr 1698 in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

This scenario would make Racheal Roberts the mother of the first set of children (Rachel Owings, Catherine Owings and possibly Richard Owings (Jr.), depending upon the latter's birthdate). Rachel Beale would be the mother of all the others.

As far as I can determine, other researchers are not in agreement about which Rachel was Richard Owings' wife. Most assume that there was only one woman named Rachel. I am taking a more creative approach, as yet not disproven, and am proposing that there were two women who happened to have the same first name. It makes a better story. If it was so, all that is in question is the timing of marriages & births.

Source http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:a41513&id=I0192 lists two wives:
1) Rachel Roberts m. 1682
2) Rachel Beale b. 1662, England, m. 1690 in Maryland

------------
Several sources mention that Richard Owen was named after Richard Davies of Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, who was a famous Quaker minister. Richard Davies visited Owen Humphrey (Richard's father), along with Owen's brothers Samuel and John, in Llwyngril in 1662 and attests to their faithfulness and that of others in the Quaker community there.

Excerpt from http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html - M.J.P. Grundy, 26 Jul 2008:

"Our Richard Owen1 identified himself as a carpenter, first of Anne Arundel County, then of Baltimore County. One source says he was born in Virginia and died before 11 February 1726/7. He was married to Rachel (__) by 1701/2.[1]

"As with most of our colonial Maryland ancestors, we find traces of them in legal records of various kinds. For example, Richard had borrowed considerable money from Christopher RANDALL , that was listed in the latter's estate inventory 20 Mar. 1684/5. I don't know if the loans were in order to purchase real estate, or for some other reason. Richard made several real estate transactions. On 12 September 1685 he bought the tract "Range" from Thomas LIGHTFOOT and his wife Rebecca. It was in Anne Arundel County about a mile from the head of the Anne Arundel River, by the line of Richard WARFIELD's land, by a tract called the "Marsh". The next fall Richard sold 384 acres to Jabez PIERPONT, a planter of Baltimore County, for 4,500 pounds of tobacco. Richard's wife released her dower right in it. On 10 October 1694 Richard had surveyed for him 450 acres on the west side of the Patapasco, north side of Col. TAYLOR's land. On 13 March (or August) 1704 Richard conveyed 225 acres out of the total 450 acre "Owen's Adventure" to Col. Edward DORSEY for £40. The tract had originally been patented 10 November 1695. On 1 June 1708 Richard sold another 100 acres from "Owings Adventure" [notice the spelling variations as officially recorded] to Richard ACTON, planter. This tract had been granted to Richard by Lord Baltimore 3 April 1700. Richard's wife, Rachel, gave her consent. On 1 June 1708 Richard owens of Baltimore County, carpenter, conveyed 100 acres, which was part of a larger tract, with Rachel's consent, to Richard ACTON, planter. Another land grant was made to Capt. Richard Owings on 10 September 1725 consisting of 480 acres in Baltimore County named "Owens Outland Plains".[2]


On 16 October 1697 the Assembly passed an "Act appointing Rangers for the defence of this Province". It decreed that fifteen men be raised "to strengthen the Garrison and frontiers at Potomak". They were to be raised proportionately from Anne Arundel, Calvert, St. Mary's, and Charles Counties. The colonels were to "impress them, but if Volunteers can be afterwards procured" the draftees could be released. Richard Owen of Anne Arundel County was made Captain over the new recruits, with Giles HILL of St. Mary's County, the Lieutenant. Two weeks later Richard signed a receipt for arms and equipment received from the Governor: 1 brass "lanthorne", 2 carbines and belts, 2 bayonettes and belts, 2 pair of pistols, 1 brass compass, 1 "prospective" glass, 30 flints, 2 Bibles, 1 Whole Duty of Man, 5 "Catuch boxes" and belts, and $1.00.[3]

"That was not the extent of Richard's military career. He also appeared on a list of soldiers under the command of Col. Ninian BEALE from 6 February 1699 to 6 May 1700. For this he was paid at 3/4d per day, for a total of £15.03.04.[4]


"The only other fact about Richard of which we can be sure, is that he and Rachel were the parents of Samuel, because Samuel had this information entered in the St. Thomas parish register, Garrison Forest, Baltimore County. St. Paul's was the first parish in Baltimore County, and there are four Owings marriages in the St. Paul's Parish register, that let us infer they are all siblings: Robert, Samuel, Joshua, and Ruth. Later, St. Thomas was set off from St. Paul. The web site of "First Families of Anne Arundel County" lists additional children. Some may be conflated from other families.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:2492193&id=I2555:

Captain Richard Owings, The Settler

Richard Owings, was born Richard Owen, or perhaps Richard ab Owain, at about the time of the restoration of the Stewarts. The place of his birth was probably in the parish of Llanllugan, in the central part of County Montgomery, North Wales. For it is here we find that Cwn Owain or Valley of Owen whose name he was to give to one of his plantations. It lies in the southwestern portion of the parish among the upper waters of the southern branch of the Rhiw.

Of Richard Owings' parents we no nothing, but we may infer that they were yeomen or small gentlefolk, a class then numerous in Wales, and he himself was bred to the trade of carpenter. The origins of his wife, Rachel, are likewise uncertain, but one may suppose that they were married about 1682, for their eldest surviving child, a daughter, was born in the following year. In 1684 they removed to Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and there settled in Middle Neck Hundred, between the Severn and the South Rivers. They may have had relatives in this vicinity, or they may have been attracted to it by the familiar name of its principal river.

Richard Owings probably began in his new home by practicing his trade, but he seems later to have turned more and more to planting. On 12 September 1685, he purchased of Thomas Lightfoot "The Range," 384 acres, which on 9 November 1686 he sold to Jabez Pierpont. On 15 February 1688/9 he surveyed a second tract, near or contiguous to the former, called "Owings' Range" and embracing 162 acres, which he sold on 5 August 1690 to Ambrose Nelson. Both plantations were in Middle Neck Hundred a little to the west of the present Crownsville. Very probably he continued to occupy one or the other until his removal to Baltimore County in 1701-2. Meantime he had surveyed a third tract of land, 10 May 1688, called "Locust Thicket," 384 acres, which lay up south of the Patapsco, on Elk Ridge, in Broad Neck Hundred of Anne Arundel County, near what is now Shipley Station. This he sold, prior to April 1698, to Col. William Holland.

From 18 October 1697 until their disbandment in May 1701 Richard Owings served with the rank of Captain as commander of the mounted rangers enforced at the Little Falls of the Potomac. This was in New Scotland Hundred of Prince George's County, but it is now within the limits of Georgetown, District of Columbia. He and his men were to range the woods in this frontier area, looking out for possibly hostile "foreign Indians." They were to keep liaison with another Maryland garrison, north of the Patapsco, and with a Virginia garrison across the Potomac.

On his retirement Captain Owings settled, prior to Midsummer, 1702, in the Upper Part, North Patapsco Hundred, Baltimore County, where he had previously surveyed, on 10 October 1694, two neighboring plantations. These were "Long Acre", 225 acres, on the north bank of the Patapsco, halfway between Elk Ridge Landing and the present Ellicott City, and "Owings' Adventure," 450 acres, directly back in the woods and at or near the southeast corner of what is now Catonsville. On the former tract he built a small frame dwelling with brick chimneys at either end, a separate kitchen house, several tobacco barns, and other structures. Of the latter tract, he sold the northwest half to Col. Edward Dorsey, 13 August 1704.

After May 1727 this area was a part of Anne Arundel County. Captain Owings died, shortly before 14 November 1716, seized of all "Long Acre," 125 acres of "Owings' Adventure," and all of "The Valley of Owen." His widow occupied the dwelling plantation until her own death a little before 27 May 1729.

Richard Owings, Sr. served as Captain of the Rangers on the Potomac River from October 18, 1697 to May 16, 1701 when the Rangers were disbanded. He was known the rest of his life as Captain Richard Owings.

Marsha Barnes wrote in GenForum on 25 Oct 2006:
"There is some confusion on who Captain Richard was married to. Richard was married to Rachel ROBERTS in Llwyn-Dedwydd, Wales. Abt 1665. She died in Baltimore, Co. MD Bef. 27 May, 1729. They had a daughter named Rachel born 1683 she was the first of 10 children they had. Captain Richard Owings father was Owen Humprey Owings of Llwyngwril, Merioneth, Wales born 1629, and his mother was Margaret Vaughn of Llangelynin, Montgomeryshire Wales. Born 1630 I could go on if you want more info."

Very likely the first wife of Richard Owings, if Richard remarried after this Rachel died. If so, his second wife may have been Rachel Beale. It is important to know Rachel Roberts' death date, as well as the birthdates of her (?) children.

Birth: Dec. 10, 1680

Maryland, USA
Capt. Cockey, Sr., was the son of William Cockey, the Immigrant.

John married Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker (c.1685 - 5 Aug 1780) on 2 Apr 1726. She was the daughter of William Slade, Jr.

The earliest segment of "Oakdene" at 12025 Greenspring Valley Road in Brooklandville, Baltimore County, Maryland, was built at the beginning of the 18th century by Capt. John Cockey.

John and Elizabeth were the original owners of the estate now known as Brooklandwood in the Green Spring Valley, which later was acquired by Charles Carroll, the Signer. The Brooklandwood Mansion built by Charles Carroll for his daughter, Mary (Carroll) Caton, in 1798 overlooks the Green Spring Valley, and is now part of St. Paul's School for Boys.

Capt. John Cockey wrote his will on 22 May 1740 in Baltimore County, Maryland.

Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker [2nd] married Rev. Charles Baker on 9 Jan 1748. He was the Rector of St. John's Parish, Baltimore County, Maryland.

Capt. John Cockey and Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker, were originally buried in a Cockey family cemetery in the Green Spring Valley at the top of a slight hill about 300 yards from Falls Road.

Their gravemarkers, and two others, were moved to St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, Owings Mills, and are resting against a wall in Lot 123 of the Church Yard.

"In Memory of John Cockey, son of William the immigrant, aged 66 years. Died Aug. 15th 1746."

"Elizabeth Baker, wife of Rev. Charles Baker, and formerly wife of John Cockey, aged 95, died Aug. 5th, 1780."

"W. Cockey, son of John and Elizabeth, born 1718, died ____ 1756."

"Wm. Cockey, aged 9 years, 1782.

In writing of this old burial ground in 1855, Dr. John Paul Cockey states, among other things, that the brick wall which his grandfather, Capt. John Cockey, placed around it has been almost entirely removed by repeated robbery of its materials, notwithstanding the reservation of the burial ground, with its privileges, when Capt. John Cockey sold the adjacent lands. The robbery has been continued until there is no trace that there ever was a brick in the vicinity, and some of the stone foundation has also been taken away. The gravestones, too, have been taken up and thrown under an ash tree growing upon the lot and some of them are broken; two only remained standing in 1898. It is not probable that the number of graves here was ever large.

Richard Owens was originally buried in this Cockey family cemetery, but is currently buried in Lot 181 of the Church Yard of St. Thomas' Episcopal Church.

"Richard Owens aged 17 months and 20 days, Oct 12, 1787."

Research Notes: Richard Talbott may have emigrated to Maryland from Virginia in 1649, along with many Puritan families, or he may have come to Maryland directly from England.

Not to be confused with Sir Richard Talbot, Duke of Tyrconnell, who died at Limerick on 14 August 1691.

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland by J. D. Warfield (Baltimore, 1905), p. 530:
"West River was the abode of Richard Talbott in 1649; he was a Quaker. His wife was Elizabeth, oldest daughter of Major Richard Ewen, who that same year brought his wife, Sophia, five children and three servants at his own charges, for which he demanded and received, in 1650, a patent for 1,000 acres. The issue of Richard and Elizabeth were Richard, Edward, John and Elizabeth, wife of Benjamin Lawrence. 'Poplar Knawle' was left by his will of 1663 to Richard; 'Talbotts Ridge' to his sons, Edward and John, jointly; to Elizabeth his personalty. Richard Galloway was a witness."

Ibid., p. 13:
"Semuel Chew laid out Herrington.

"Thomas Marsh took up lands on the west side of Herring Creek, beginning at Parker's Branch, and running to Selby's Cove; he also held a thousand acres adjoining Richard Bennett, running up the bay... [Edward Selby] adjoined Thomas Meeres on the west side of South River, next to John Watkins; in all some 1000 acres.

Birth Notes: I am not sure what source has <Accomack, Virginia> as Elizabeth Ewen's birthplace. Possibly FamilySearch or RootsWeb. The birthplace needs research & verification.

Another source has birthplace as Brownton (West River), Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States), but this is unlikely as her parents would have still been in Virginia at the time.

May have been born in England (see http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mrmarsha&id=I34631)

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/ewen/messages/180.html :
I have received information on Elizabeth Ewen Talbott and her father Major Richard Ewen through the Genealogical society of Rockingham & Stokes County, North Carolina where my line through William Richardson & Elizabeth settled generations later. William Richardson was a prominent Quaker and had a home in West River Maryland with Elizabeth. The article was written by Wm L. (Butch Johnson)

Elizabeth Ewen Talbott was the widow of Richard Talbott and the daughter of Major Richard Ewen. No marriage date has been found for Elizabeth and her first husband, but proof can be found that " Major Richard Ewen assigneth the right of 50 acres to his son-in-law Richard Talbott under the date of August 2, 1659. He bequeaths to his wife, whose name is not given, his eldest son Richard, next son Edward, youngest son John, and his daughter Elizabeth.

The Ewen family settled in Maryland in 1649 and it appears that Elizabeth Ewen was possibly married at that time, which would indicate that Richard Talbott was her second husband. In 1650 May 17th, Richard Ewen demandeth One Thousand Acres of land for transporting himself and nine persons into this province the last year Vizt. Sophia his wife Eliza Davy, Richard Ewen Jr., John Ewen, Suzanna Ewen, Ann Ewen, William Davies, John King and James Brown at his own Charges. Tester James Cox.

-------
From Side-Lights on Maryland History, Vol. 2, p. 426:
"Among the earliest settlers of importance came the Richardsons, of England, and received thousands of acres of land for bringing colonists into the Province. The Land Warrants at Annapolis bear record that between the years 1636 and 1695, patents for many thousand acres of land were issued from that office to the various Richardsons who arrived between those years.

:The fact that they not only came independently, but also paid the transporation of hundreds of less fortunate settlers, proved them to have been men of wealth and enterprise. They have left evidence of their coats-of-arms, establishing their gentle origin and ancient lineage. They at once held offices of importance, both civil and military..."


Ibid, p. 427:
"William Richardson married Elizabeth Ewen, the daughter of Major Richard Ewen, one of the commissioners to govern Maryland under Oliver Cromwell. She was the widow of Richard Talbot, of Anne Arundel County. Major Richard Ewen, father-in-law of William Richardson, was one of the Council of War after the battle of the Severn, which condemned Governor Stone and others to die."


Ibid., pp. 428-429:
"William Richardson was a prominent Quaker, and Proud, in his History of Pennsylvania, tells of a visit to him by William Penn, The Lord and Lady Baltimore, who, with their retinue, visited William Richardson in his home at West River, from whence they went across the Bay to attend a Yearly Meeting at Tred Haven, Talbot County. Proud took his facts from the Journal of John Richardson, printed at London in 1700.

"The lands of William Richardson, of Anne Arundel County, amounted to over 4000 acres, and his household goods, his silver and seals, engraved with the family crest, which have descended in the family, all attest the elegance in which he lived.

"His will, dated December 21, 1691, was proved May 28, 1698 (Annapolis Wills, No. 7, page 388). In this he bequeaths 'to sons Daniel and Joseph' equally, six hundred acres called 'Hickory Hills' and 'Franklin's Enlargement.' To wife Elizabeth, 'Watkin's Hope,' 'to son William at twenty-one years of age, part of 'Watkin's Hope' adjoining plantation of William Cole,' which testator gave him and his heirs. To 'daughter Sophia, 'Diligent Search,' at sixteen," young son Joseph, grandson William Richardson, Margaret wife of William Richardson, Jr., all received personalty, as did also 'John and Sarah Talbot and their daughter Elizabeth and the three children of Edward Talbot' (the children of his wife by her marriage to Richard Talbot). The executors were, 'wife Elizabeth, and son William'; overseers, 'Richard Jones, Richard Harrison, John Talbot, William Coleson."

From Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 174-175:

A friend of William Penn, he came to Virginia in the "Paul," of London, in 1634. He removed to Maryland in 1666, and became a member of the Lower House of the Assembly from 1676 to 1683. He was frequently the bearer of messages to the Upper House with instructions form Parliament.

During his service, he was upon the Committee of Security and Defense of the Province, and of the Committee upon Laws for the Province. With Henry Ridgely, Edward Darcy, Nicholas Gassaway and others, he was, in 1683, also, upon a committee to erect a building for the Courts and Assembly, and for keeping the records of the Secretary's office in this Province.

On December 19th, 1682, William Penn met Lord Baltimore at West River, and after an interview upon their divisional line, Penn set out, the Lord Baltimore accompanying him several miles, to the house of William Richardson, and from thence two miles further to a religious meeting of his friends, the Quakers, at the house of Thomas Hooper.

William Richardson married Elizabeth Talbot, widow of Richard... She brought to him "Talbott's Ridge" adjoining "His Lordship's Manor," surveyed in 1662.

From http://richardsonfamily.homestead.com/Reedrichardson.html :

Information from Quaker records as published in the book "Quakers in The Founding of Anne Arundel County, Maryland" by J. Reaney Kelley (FHC Bk. No. 975.255 F2k, US/Can) indicates as follows: Page 14 - "While there is no proof that Richard Ewen became a Friend, it is known that in 1657 he refused to take an oath and declared it unlawful to do so. His daughter, Elizabeth, married, first, Richard Talbott, and, second, William Richardson both well-known and ardent Friends." Page 37 - "William Richardson was the first signer of this Testimony. Prior to 1680 he acquired a tract of land in the West River Hundred named 'Watkins Hope.' A part of this land is now known as 'Woodstock, and is located between Owensville and the Old Quaker Burying Ground. An historic roadside marker, indicating the general location of his house, calls attention to a visit by William Penn to Richardson in 1682, after the memorable conference between the former and Charles, Third Lord Baltimore, 'at the house of Col. Thomas Tailler,' where the two had discussed the boundaries of Maryland and Pennsylvania. Colonel Taillor's home was only a few miles away, just below South River. The tract now known as 'Etowah Farm', on State Route 2, includes a part of the Taillor plantation. From Richardson's house Penn traveled a short distance to attend a Meeting at the house of Thomas Hooker, Sr., near West River Landing, and from there he embarked for the Eastern Shore. Quaker Meetings were held at the house of William Richardson, who was a Quaker minister, until his death in 1697." Additional information shows - "Soon after 1663, William Richardson, Sr., married Elizabeth, widow of Richard Talbott of 'Poplar Knowle,' now 'Tulip Hill,' and daughter of Richard Ewen of nearby 'Ewen Upon Ewenton,' today known as 'Cedar Park.' He was fined for not taking an oath on November 10, 1662, but later held an important position in Lord Baltimore's government,' serving as a member of the Lower House of the General Assembly in 1678. In 1683, at a meeting of the General Assembly at John Larkin's house, now 'Larkins Hills,' in the area called The Ridge, Richardson argued in favor of making West River Landing a port of entry for that area, a development not accomplished until the next year. Richardson was appointed as one of the commissioners to survey and manage the building of a courthouse at Londontowne on South River, another instance of a Quaker holding a position in the Maryland government. He died in 1698, and his will, dated December 21, 1691, was probated on April 2, 1698. He left a substantial estate of which his wife, Elizabeth, was given the home plantation 'Watkins Hope,' and he remembered his beloved Quaker Church."

From Baltimore: Its History and Its People, p. 795.:

"Edward Talbott, second son of Richard and Elizabeth (Ewen) Talbott, was born at 'Poplar Knowle', November 6, 1658, died there in January, 1689. He married Elizabeth, who died in 1725, widow of William Coale, and daughter of Philip and Sarah Thomas, who were immigrants from England. Philip Thomas was a noted man of his time, the owner of a large estate, and held a variety of positions under the government of the colony."
-----------------
From The Thomas Book, pp. 27-34:

PHILIP THOMAS, of the mercantile house of Thomas & Devonshire, at Bristol, England, son of Evan Thomas of Swansea, Glamorganshire, Wales, is the earliest ancestor of this family of whom we have legal and documentary proof, although I have little doubt that the descent given in this genealogy is accurately taken from Sir Rhys ap Thomas, K.G., and will be confirmed by further investigations… The coat of arms (ar., a chevron checquy of or and sa., between three ravens, close, of the last) borne by Philip Thomas upon his gold-headed cane and service of silver, served to point out the true affiliation when I came across the arms of Sir Rhys ap Thomas of Carew, in an old copy of Guillim's "Display of Heraldry" (viz., Ar. a chevron sa. between three ravens, close, of the last). ..

Further research satisfied me that the descent was to be taken directly from Sir Rhys through one of his sons by Gwenllian (q.v.), sister of his friend and counsellor, Robert ap Gwylim Harry ap Jevan Gwyn of Mydhifinych, Abbot of Talley. Referring then to the genealogy of Sir Rhys ap Thomas for its earlier history, we begin the present family with this THOMAS AP RHYS, b. after 1478, whose son Philip ap Thomas m. Sybell, dau. of Philip and Joan (Warnecombe) Scudamore, and dying before 1585 left a son and heir, John Philip Thomas, who appears to have inherited from his mother the demesne lands of Grosmount Manor, Monmouthshire, and a grist-mill near by, before 1585, when he held them "in right of Philip Skudamore," and in 1591 was Queen's lessee of mills at Kentchurch in the same shire. He m. Gwenllian, fourth dau. of Walter Herbert, Esq (q.v.), of Skenfrith, Sheriff of Monmouthshire in 1552, and had issue: Evan Thomas, b. 1580, whose name begins the pedigree compiled by the late Philip E. Thomas, Esq., of Baltimore… His wife's name is unknown. Philip, his son, was b. about 1600…

Philip Thomas, the emigrant, before 1650, formed a business partnership with one Devonshire at Bristol, and some time in the year 1651, only seventeen years after Leonard Calvert and Lord Baltimore's first colonists landed at St. Mary's, removed to the province of Maryland. The earliest land patent in his name, dated February 19, 1651-2, conveys to him 500 acres of land called "Beakely" or "Beckley" on the west side of Chesapeake Bay , "in consideration that he hath in the year 1651 transported himself, Sarah, his wife, Philip, Sarah, and Elizabeth his children, into this our province."

He would appear to have come directly from Bristol to Maryland. An examination of the land records of the colony of Virginia, made by the well-known genealogist, R. A. Brock, Esq., of Richmond, fails to show any grant to a Philip Thomas in the seventeenth century, and there would seem to be no reason to suppose that he was in America before coming to Maryland…

Between 1658 and 1661 Philip Thomas had patented to him 100 acres called "Thomas Towne;" in 1665 a patent of 120 acres called "Fuller's Poynt;" in 1668, of 300 acres called "The Planes;" in 1672, of 200 acres called "Phillip's Addicion," and numerous other patents of unnamed tracts. This land lay mostly in Anne Arundel County, near what is now known as West River. "Fuller's Poynt," between the Severn and South Rivers, is now called Thomas Point, and is the site of a light-house. A man of character and resolution, the emigrant soon acquired influence amongst his neighbours, and, affiliating himself with the Puritan party, he became one of its leaders in the conflict with Lord Baltimore, the Proprietary, and his representatives in the province. When Cromwell and the Parliamentary party were supreme in England, their sympathizers in Maryland broke out in open rebellion under Colonel Richard Bennett, and Philip Thomas, holding a military commission as lieutenant, was of their muster in Anne Arundel County, Md. Governor Stone immediately summoned the militia of the province, and with a little army of 250 men, after seizing a magazine of arms collected by the Puritans, set out for Providence on the Severn, the head-quarters of Bennett's partisans. Part of his men were transported in small vessels, and part marched along the Bay shore. As they drew near Providence, Stone sent forward a messenger to the enemy, summoning them to surrender; but the messenger did not return; and on the evening of the same day, March 24, 1654-5, the Governor's little fleet, with all his army now on board, made its appearance in the Severn.

Captain Fuller, the commander at Providence, put some men on board a ship lying in the harbour, who fired on Stone's boats as he landed his forces, but did no damage. On the next morning, which was Sunday, Governor Stone and his force came marching up to the attack, under the black and yellow flag of the colony, while over Fuller's men, 107 in number, drawn up in order of battle, floated the blue cross on a crimson field, the standard of the Commonwealth of England. The battle was short, but sharp; about fifty of the Governor's men were killed or wounded, and Stone himself, with nearly all his force, compelled to surrender, under a promise that their lives should be spared.

The Puritan annalist writes: "After the battle our men were so tired with watching and anxiety (before the attack) that the guards set over the prisoners fell asleep at their posts; yet the Catholics were so disheartened by their defeat, that no one of them attempted to escape." "Hammond against Heamans," a contemporary pamphlet by one of the Governor's party, notes that "three days after the battle Captain Fuller, Wm. Burgees, Richard Evans, Leo Strong, Wm. Durand, Roger Heamans, John Brown, John Cuts, Richard Smith, one Thomas (Philip Thomas), one Bestone, Sampson Warren, Thomas Meares, and one Crouch, sat as a Council of War, condemned a number of the prisoners to die, and executed four of them."

March 20, 1656-7, Lieutenant Philip Thomas was appointed one of the six High Commissioners of the Provincial Court, the father of his son-in-law, John Mears, being another. When Oliver Cromwell ordered the revolutionists to return the province to the Proprietary he was one of the commissioners to make the surrender, which was effected on March 24, 1658-9, when the articles of surrender were signed, sealed, and delivered. After this he does not seem to have taken an active part in the political affairs of the province, the notices of his name upon the colonial records having to do with transfers of land, etc., the number of which were considerable.

From a petition to the Colonial Assembly, dated April 16, 1666, we learn that he had returned from a voyage to England in the preceding month. Tuesday, October 17, 1671, the Upper House of Assembly consents to a bill for ferries, among them being one "over Potapsco River, from Philip Thomas point in Anne Arundel Co. to Kent Co."

In April, 1672, George Fox, the founder of the Society of Friends or Quakers, arrived in Maryland, landing at the Patuxent just in time to reach a "general meeting for all the Friends in the Province of Maryland," which had been appointed by John Burnyeat to be held at West River. He describes it as a "very large meeting," and held four days, "to which, besides Friends, came many other people divers of whom were of considerable quality in the world's account." Immediately after this meeting Fox appears to have continued his labours by preaching his doctrines and establishing meetings for discipline at various places in the province. He remained in America until after the "general meeting" at West River, which commenced on the 17th of 3d month (May), 1673, and lasted four days. The next day, being the 21st, he set sail for England. In describing his meeting he says, "divers of considerable account in the government and many others were present, who were generally satisfied, and many of them reached, for it was a wonderful glorious meeting." It is possible, from the language of his will, that Philip Thomas himself was one of those "reached" by George Fox, and there can be no doubt that during his missionary tour his preaching brought a number of the family under the influence of Quakerism, as we find their names enrolled upon the early records of the Society immediately afterward. In point of fact, an examination of those records shows that, for the generation then living and their children, in Maryland at least, George Fox, John Burnyeat, Samuel Bownas, and the other preachers of Quakerism, did very much the same work as was done a century later by John Wesley and the Methodists. Such religion as they had was formal and lifeless; many, indeed, had cast off all restraint, and were living in utter neglect of the ordinances of religion and common morality. The Quaker missionaries coming amongst them with their fervid zeal, and speaking, as they thought, messages direct from heaven, aroused the slumbering souls of their hearers, and reaped a large harvest of converts to what was in fact the first presentation of a spiritual religion they had known.

As a result of this, the Quaker Registers of the end of the seventeenth century are a veritable Libro d'oro in Maryland, containing as they do the names of so many of the leading families of the province. Whether Philip Thomas became a Quaker or not, his widow certainly was one, and probably a preacher of the sect. September 9, 1674, he made his will, which was proved August 10, 1675. A copy, apparently made by one of his sons-in-law, is still preserved at the family seat, "Lebanon," West River, Md. From this he appears to have disposed of much of the land granted him, only mentioning "Beckley," "Fuller's Poynt," and the "Playns," and his two houses in Bristol, England. The clause in the will making "the body of Quakers" a final Court of Appeal in the event of any dispute arising under its provisions, was a common one amongst the Society of Friends, and in this case recourse was had to it. After the death of his widow, Sarah Thomas, his son Samuel claimed all her estates by virtue of a verbal will which he alleged she had made in his favour. This claim was resisted by is brother-in-law, Edward Talbot, and the West River Meeting of Friends was appealed to, to decide the question. The Meeting decided that although she had expressed a wish that Samuel Thomas should be her sole heir, she had not given legal effect to it, and that the state should be equally divided between her several heirs. The two houses in Bristol were sold before September 13, 1690, when John Talbot claimed an interest in the proceeds of the sale in right of his wife, the granddaughter of Philip Thomas, to the extent of and as her share of the whole landed estate."

-----------------

For a historical context, excerpted from The Cousins' Wars, p. 58:
"The principal fighting in English North America was between Catholics and Puritans in Maryland. In 1645, Captain Richard Ingle, a Parliamentarian, seized the Catholic capital at St. Mary's on Chesapeake Bay, and two Jesuit priests were sent to England in chains. Disgruntled Puritans from Virginia had begun emigrating to Maryland in 1644-45, and in 1649 established a settlement at Providence (now Annapolis), which became the center of Parliamentary strength. St. Mary's was recaptured by the Calvert faction in 1646. Maryland Puritans defeated the Calvert forces again a decade later in the 'Battle of the Severn' in 1655, but the Calverts came back to full power in 1660 with the Restoration."

From Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 46-47:

"With his wife Sarah Harrison and three children, Philip, Sarah and Elizabeth, Philip Thomas came from Bristol, England, in 1651. He was granted five hundred acres, 'Beckley,' on the west of the Chesapeake.

"To this he added 'Thomas Towne,' 'The Plains' and 'Phillip's Addition.' On this he erected his homestead, 'Lebanon,' a view of which is still preserved. On his lands stands Thomas Point Lighthouse.

"His neighbor was Captain Wm. Fuller, the provincial leader. With him, Edward Lloyd, Richard Preston, Samuel Withers went to St. Leonards, and delivered up the captured records [from 1657] With this act he gave up political adventures and joined the Society of Friends, under George Fox. The Quaker Society was made the final court to settle his estate.

"This estate was claimed by his son, Samuel Thomas, through a verbal will which Edward Talbott, his brother-in-law resisted. The question was finally decided by the Society in favor of all the heirs."

--------

From Side-Lights on Maryland History, Vol. 2, pp. 87-91:

"Hockley-in-the-Hole, originally taken up by Edward Darcy, was in 1664 patented to his sons Edward, Joshua and John, the original patent bearing date August 20, 1664, being still in the possession of the present owner of Hockley, Miss Anne Elizabeth Dorsey, lineal descendant of all three of the original patentees. In the year 1681 'Edward Dorsey, Gent. of Ann Arundell County, Son and heir of Edward Dorsey late of said County deceased' assigned his right to his brother John. The parchment document granting Hockley to the three Dorsey brothers bears the autograph of Charles, third Lord Baltimore, and was given under the Great Seal of the Province.

"[Major Edward Dorsey's] house on Prince George's Street, Annapolis, was probably built when he disposed of his interest in Hockley to his youngest brother the 'Honorable John Dorsey.'

"... the Honorable John Dorsey, captain of the Baltimore County militia in later years, took possession of Hockley, three miles from Annapolis, over which his wife, Madam Pleasance Ely, presided, of whom it has been noted--perhaps as a warning to her descendants, that her name was in no sense suggestive of her disposition."
-------

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland, p. 56:

"The following record is taken from 'Our Early Settlers.'--A list of our early arrivels [sic] up to 1680.

"'Robert Bullen demands lands for bringing over a number of passengers, amongst whom was Edward Dorsey, in 1661.'

"The same record adds, 'Aug. 25th [20th], 1664, patented to him, John and Joshua Dorsey, a plantation called "Hockley-in-the-Hole," four hundred acres.'

"In 1683, this land was resurveyed for John Dorsey, and found to contain 843 acres. 400 acres first surveyed being old rents remaining new, whole now in the possession of Caleb Dorsey.

"Such is the record of 'Hockley' upon our Rent Rolls, at Annapolis."

Ibid., p. 30:
"In 1664, the three sons of Edward Dorsey, the immigrant of 1650--relatives of the Howards--took up and patented their father's survey of 'Hockley-in-the-Hole.' They were Colonel Edward Dorsey, Joshua and Hon. John Dorsey, prominent leaders in political movements and representatives in legislative measures."

Ibid., pp. 61-62:

"HON. JOHN DORSEY, OF 'HOCKLEY.'

"Coming into possession of 'Hockley,' in 1683, Hon. John Dorsey married Plesance Ely, who later took up a tract of land on Elk Ridge, which she named 'The Isle of Ely.' In 1694, Hon. John Dorsey, was a commissioner for the development of Annapolis. He was upon many important committees during his service in the Lower House of the Assembly. In 1711, he was advanced to the Upper House, and there remained until his death in 1714. During his life-time he was a surveyor of a vast estate of valuable lands. He left an exceedingly intelligent will of entail, which gives a summary of his large estate. It reads: 'My wife, Plesance, is to have one-third of my estate, and also the choice of my estate on South River, or my now dwelling place on Elk Ridge [Troy]. To my grandson, John Dorsey, son of my son, Edward Dorsey, deceased, my Patuxent plantation and lands thereunto adjoining called 'Dorsey's Search,' lying in Baltimore County. If no issue, to go to the three youngest grandchildren of my daughter, Deborah

'I give to my grandson, Edward Dorsey, son of my son, Edward Dorsey, de ceased, "Dorsey's Adventure" and "Whitaker's Purchase" adjoining it. If he leave no issue, then to John, of Edward, and if he leave none, then as above, to Deborah's youngest three children. To my grandsons, Charles and William Ridgely, of Deborah, my tract called "White Wine and Claret," south side of the middle branch of the Patuxent. If they leave no issue, to go to Martha, Elinor and Edward Clagett.

'I give to my two grandsons, Samuel and Richard, of Caleb, my son, my plantation on South River, called "South River Quarter," it being the remainder of a tract given to my son, Caleb. In case of no issue, the same to go to granddaughters, Achsah and Sophia of Caleb.

'To grandson, Basil, of Caleb, my plantation on Elk Ridge, called "Troy." If no issue, to my grandsons, John and Caleb, of Caleb. My son, Caleb, to be my administrator.--JOHN DORSEY. (Seal.'

"Mrs. Plesance Dorsey became Mrs Robert Wainwright. Her tract, 'The Isle of Ely,' was sold by her grandson, 'Patuxent John Dorsey,' to Basil Dorsey, of Caleb, whose homestead, 'Troy Hill,' was the former residence of Hon. John Dorsey."

Notes for Captain John Dorsey:
[Ancestors of Abednego Baker by Muriel Schulz.ged]

From Anne Arundel Gentry, p. 10:
Edward Dorsey II before 1683 assigned to his brother, John, his portion of 400 acres for 24,000 lbs. Tobacco. Joshua, the second son, had conveyed his portion of "Hockley" for 8,000 lbs. Tobacco. In 1685 Caleb Dorsey, son of John, had the plantation resurveyed and found that it contained 843 acres instead of the original 400.

[Page 10]: 1681 - Deed from Edward Dorsey II, to John Dorsey:
Edward Dorsey of the County of Anne Arundel Gent son and heir of Edward Dorsey late of the County of Anne Arundel . . . deceased. . . whereas the Rt. Honorable Cecillius Lord Baron of Baltimore by his pattent bearing date the twentieth day of August one thousand six hundred and sixty four for ye Consideration therein mentioned Grant unto the said Edward Dorsey, Joshua Dorsey and John Dorsey my brothers a parcell of land Called Hockley in ye Hole lying in Anne Arundel County aforesaid on ye South side Seaverne River in ye Woods beginning at a marke Oake being a bound tree of the land of Cornelius and Samuell Howard . . . . the said four hundred Acres of land unto the said Edward Dorsey, John Dorsey and Joshua Dorsey . . . .

The indenture was witnessed by Richard Hill and Nicholas Greenbury. Ref. A.A. Co. Deeds, Liber IH:, No. 3, folio 62-63, Hall of Records, Annapolis.


The inventory of his personal estate was taken on April 25, 1715 and filed by his son and executor, Caleb Dorsey. At the home-plantation there were 11 slaves and in "ye new Roome" were books and a pair of spectacles. His quarters at Elk Ridge had five slaves, the Patuxent Quarters four slaves, but none was listed at the South River Quarters. The entire estate was appraised at 1440/3/9 with credit due from merchants in London. Richard Clagett and John Dorsey approved as the next of kin.

He apparently had a state funeral and certainly one in which the mourners and friends enjoyed traditional Maryland hospitality. At an account filed on April 11, 1716, 10 gallons of rum and 30 gallons of cider were consumed as well as cakes costing 2 lbs. The Rev. Williams Tebbs who preached the funeral sermon was given 2 lbs. At that time the widow was allotted her third, that is 321/8/3 plus 4/154 lbs. tobacco.

------------

From http://www.eskimo.com/~bgudgel/gudgarc1 :

Sometime around 1658 Edward Dorsey took up a tract of land containing 400 acres, lying in Anne Arundel County on the south side of the Severn River and or a branch of Broad Creek. This tract was later patented by his three sons. See Patents 7, f.378. In the year 1664 there was granted to Edward, Joshua and John Dorsey, 2,000 acres of land lying on the Severn River, not far from where the city of Annapolis now stands. A part of this, called "Hockley-in-ye-Hole" (hole meaning valley) which remained interminably in the hands of the descendants of John Dorsey to the present time. In 1681, Major Edward Dorsey transferred his interest in Hockley-in-the-Hole to his brother John. The transfer reads: "To all Christian People To Whom This Writing Shall Come, be Heard or Seen: I, Edward Dorsey, of the county of Anne Arundel, son and heir of the late Edward Dorsey, gentleman, deceased, for the consideration of 24,000 pounds of good merchantable tobacco, transfer my right in a tract of land called "Hockley-in-the- Hole" granted to Edward, Joshua and John Dorsey in 1664 to my brother, John Dorsey; and I further covenant to guarantee his right to said land against any demand that may descend from my said Father, Edward Dorsey, for or by reason of any right due to him in his lifetime or by reason of any survey by him made, or warrant returned, or for any other reason or any other matter." "Hockley" in the valley had pleasant environments. To the east, toward Annapolis, was the Carroll estates; to the north was the home of Gen. John Hammond; to the northwest were the lands of Cornelius, Samuel and John Howard; to the southwest was "Todd's Gap" through which the road to Lancelot Todd's led, and to the south the ancient Dorsey "God's Acre" which has since been abandoned for the family burial spot within the charming gardens of "Hockley" itself.

John Dorsey2, was born ca. 1645 in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, the son of Edward and his wife Ann, and died in 1715 in Maryland. He emigrated with his family in 1649 to Anne Arundel County, Maryland. John married in 1684 Pleasance ELY . One source identifies her as the step-daughter of Thomas WAINWRIGHT (d. 1729), while another states Thomas was her second husband. John is usually referred to in the records as "Hon." or Captain, a rank he held from 1695 until his death in 1714/5. Although raised as a Friend, he was later identified as Protestant, meaning neither Quaker or Anglican.[19]

"In 1663 John was living with his brothers at "Hockley in the Hole", Anne Arundel County, because it was surveyed for them on 27 January that year. This 400 acre plot had been taken up by their father sometime before 1658, on the south side of the Severn "and or a branch of Broad Creek". In 1681 John bought out his brothers' rights to it. He paid Edward 24,000 pounds of tobacco for it and additional land Edward had bought, and paid 8,000 pounds to Joshua. When it was resurveyed in 1683 (or 1685) it was found to contain 842 (or 843) acres (or resurveyed in 1685 and contained 1,842 acres).[20] The secondary accounts of the original records are a little hard to interpret in large part because they don't always differentiate among the multiplicity of bureaucratic steps necessary to secure title to a tract of land. The original patent was in the possession of a descendent, Anne Elizabeth Dorsey, who was still living in the old homestead in 1913. A photo of that date shows a relatively small house with two dormers on the roof, one chimney at the left end of the photo, and a narrow porch with a roof two storeys high suported on thin columns. The house was nearly obscured with shrubbery.[21] When we went to find it in April 2004, there was a white historical marker on the road, but the two houses that might conceivably have been a remnant of the old homestead both looked twentieth century, to me.

"John purchased significant amounts of land during his life. A list of them, by their names, includes:[22]

"Howard's Heirship" (150 acres) purchased from Cornelius and Elizabeth HOWARD on 4 August 1679; they were the brother and sister-in-law of our John Howard ;
"Hockley in the Hole", purchased Edward's and Joshua's rights in 1681; resurveyed in 1683 and found to contain 842 acres (see above);
"Orphan's Addition", near "Hockley in the Hole", on 10 March 1697, which he gave to his son Caleb on 6 August 1702;
"Dorsey's Adventure" (400 acres on Elk Ridge between the Patuxent and Patapsco) on 30 Feb [sic: perhaps April?] 1688; this tract with the next one were called "Patuxent Plantation", and were bequeathed to John's grandson, John Dorsey;
"Dorsey's Search" (479 acres) purchased on 6 December 1694 from James BAYLEY;
"Troy" (763 acres) on 12 October 1694;
"White Wine and Claret" (1,400 acres) on 6 January 1702;
"Whitaker's Purchase" (79 acres) in 1704;
"Roper's Increase" (100 acres) obtained on 14 February 1705 from Cornelius and Mary HOWARD;
"Mt. Gilboa" (245 acres) in 1706, which he conveyed the next year to Richard COLEGATE.

"On 12 June 1688 John and his brother Edward acquired land in what was then Baltimore County (now Howard County). Edward settled on his "Major's Choice", but John did not build on his "Dorsey's Adventure". Instead John commissioned surveyors to "go beyond Richard Warfield" in upper Anne Arundel County. There on 10 November 1695 he patented "Troy", 736 acres, between the present towns of Elkridge and Guilford, where he built his home. He also patented "Isle of Ely", named for his wife's family, and "Dorsey's Search". Another source says that Pleasance herself took up the tract after John's death, which she named "The Isle of Ely". The tax return of 1695 recorded, "John Dawsey's Quarter, on Elke Ridge, etc.", so John had a house there by that year. This makes "Troy" the oldest remaining house in Howard County, although it has been greatly altered. Originally "Troy" was a one-storey house with a front porch devoid of any ornamentation other than a simple ballustrade. Other floors were added later. The interior and exterior walls were about two feet thick. The old family burial ground was on one side of the house. The front porch now overlooks Meadowridge Cemetery (once part of the Dorsey estate) and route I-95. The entrance is from route 1 north of Dorsey Road.[23]

"John, like his brothers, probably opposed the Revolution of 1689. He gained his first appointed office from Governor Francis NICHOLSON who was sympathetic to the proprietor. From then on John had an active public career. He was appointed Justice of the Peace in Anne Arundel County in 1694 and 1696. In 1694 he was appointed to a commission charged with laying out the town and port of Anne Arundel in the County of the same name. On 17 May 1695 he petitioned the Assembly for a boat to carry the Burgesses of Anne Arundel County to St. Mary's. He was Captain in the Baltimore County militia in 1696. John served on a commission to oversee and direct construction of a Provincial prison in Annapolis. He was named to another commission to report on repairs to a house (purchased from his cousin Major Edward Dorsey) for the storage of public arms.[24]

"In 1692, after the consolidation of the reign of William and Mary in England, a new government was elected in Maryland that was very unsympathetic to Friends. They required an oath of allegiance in order to sit in the Assembly, and four Friends were immediately dismissed. The lower house tried to substitute an affirmation, but Governor Lionel COPLEY insisted on conforming to English practice. That year the Church of England was established, with a compulsary poll tax of forty pounds of tobacco. There were renewed efforts to force Friends to serve in the militia. The following year Friends were not permitted to give evidence in court unless they gave an oath. John Dorsey served as a member of the lower House of Assembly in 1692-93, and again in 1701-04 when a modified bill, rewritten by the Privy Council to meet some of the objections of Friends, was passed. It retained the 40 lb. tax to support the established church, and Friends continued up until the Revolution to suffer distraint of goods for refusing to pay it. In 1704 a bill was passed stipulating again that all office-holders must swear an oath.[25] I do not know how John felt about these attacks on his family's faith.

"John sat in the Lower House for Anne Arundel County in 1692-93 and 1701-04. He was appointed to the Provincial Council where he served from 1710/1 to 1714/5. On 18 January 1714 he described himself as "being lame and indisposed" and asked to be excused from the Council meeting. The following year the Council was said to consist of twelve "of the most able and discreet gentlemen" of the Province, including "John Dorsey, Esq., lately deceased."[26]

"John was a planter and merchant, somewhat more prosperous and less controversial than his older brother Edward. At the time of his first election, in 1692, John owned 1,242 acres. By 1696 he owned 2,484. In 1699 he was listed among the taxables on the South side of Patapsco, owning five slaves. Shortly thereafter he moved his family to "Troy", 763 acres at Elk Ridge, Baltimore County, which had been surveyed 12 October 1694. He took up 1,400 acres called "White Wine and Claret" between the present towns of Simpsonville and Clarksville in Howard County on 6 January 1702. The story goes that he sent out the surveyors with an ample supply of those liquid refreshments; when they returned with crooked lines, John figured that was the cause, and kept the name. The tax lists for Baltimore County sometimes indicate the number of slaves he owned at various plantations. In 1699 he had five on South Side Patapsco; in 1702 four, and in 1703 ten at Elk Ridge.[27]

"A few Friends were exercised about the institution of slavery, citing Jesus' injunction to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. But nothing was done at this time to rid the Society of Friends of this blemish. A few Friends were also exercised about the excessive use of tobacco. Hardshaw Monthly Meeting in Lancashire, Old England, minuted this advice 14 Fourth Month [June] 1691:

'It being considered that the too frequent use of smoking Tobacco is inconsistent with friends holy profession, it is desired that such as have occasion to make use thereof take it privately, neither too publicly in their own houses, nor by the highways, streets, or in alehouses or elsewhere, tending to the abetting the common excess.[27a]'

"Most Maryland Friends were oblivious of these movements that would impact so heavily on their economic and social well being.

"John signed his will in Baltimore County on 26 November 1714; it was witnessed by six men, one of whom signed with a mark. It was probated 22 March 1714/5. He left one third of his real and personal estate, after the payment of his debts, to his wife Pleasance as full payment of her dower. She was to be given her choice of either the plantation on South River or "my own dwelling plantation" on Elk Ridge. Her share of the estate included four human beings: Jacob and his wife Jenny, and two other Negro men, Lyman and Sambo. John's extensive real estate holdings and the remaining slaves were carefully apportioned to his grandchildren, with instructions for their further disposal if a given grandchild died with no heirs. His daughter Deborah was to be given £50, doled out at the rate of £8 per year "for her support", but no real estate. Her children were the third back-up to inherit if other grandchildren died without heirs. The residue went to his son Caleb, who was named executor. Nathaniell and Thomasin STINCHCOMB owed money to him.[28]

"An inventory of John's property was taken on 25 April 1715 by Thomas HAMMOND and John ISRAEL. The only values given in the Dorsey Family's copy were for the seventeen enslaved people. An odd assortment of items were listed "At the Home Plantation", "In the New Room", and "in the Kitchen". They included one silver tankard and one silver spoon; a dozen old leather chairs, six new leather chairs, and 4 "Turkey workt" chairs; an old sealskin trunk; a gun and 1/4 lb. of gunpowder; a small looking glass; one feather bed with canvas tick[ing], rug blanket, sheets, bedstead, and pillows; another feather bed and furniture, curtains and "vallens" [valence]; one pair Taylors Shears; a pair of money scales and weights; one parcel of new books; a pair of spectacles and case; 8 small brushes, 3 old combs, 3 pair sissors; 1 parcel of spice. There were lots of shoes, indicating the kind of merchandize with which John dealt: 2 dozen and 10 pair men's shoes, 3 pair women's shoes, 21 pair men's shoes. To go with them, 13 pair "large wove" stockings, 1 pair motheaten stockings, 20 pair of 4-thread hose, 5 pair women's thread stockings, 8 pair men's worsted hose, 1 pair large wove stockings. Then there was thread: 6.5 lbs. colored, 3 lbs. "Whited brown, coarse", 2 lbs. finer, 1 lb. brown, 1.5 lb. White and Brown, .5 lb. fine white, and about 1 lb. silk. John also had 6 gross Coat buttons and 6.5 gross Vest buttons, and about 5 gross fine thread [buttons?]. The only food mentioned was 1,692 lbs. of bacon. Negroes were listed "in the Kitchen": 2-year-old girl Beck; 6-year-old boy Sambo; 4-year-old boy Roger; 10-year-old girl Sarah, "much hurt by fire"; a "dropsical man" Jack; men named Jack and Tom, and one without a name; a woman, Beck, and young (unnamed) girl with child. The total value of these ten people was a mere £163 and 10d. At the Elk Ridge House there was ten lbs. of old pewter, a punch bowl, and more enslaved people: men named Simon, Sambo, Jack, and Toby; a woman named Jenny, a one-year old girl named Hagar and another girl (age not listed) named Juno. They were valued at £157. Other, unspecified items were at "Pattuxant Quarter", at South River, and at the "New Design". He probably owned about 5,000 acres; his estate was valued at £2,752.11.1.[29]

"Pleasance, "of austere memory" was described in family records: "between her name and her disposition there was no similarity." She married a second time, on 30 November 1722, Thomas WAINWRIGHT. With this marriage, "Troy" passed to her grandson Basil Dorsey, son of Caleb. Thomas died in 1729, leaving Pleasance the greater part of his estate. Pleasance apparently used her wealth to invest in land. A warrant was made out for her 17 December 1717 for 200 acres called "Isle of Ely" adjacent to "Troy". That year she also bought 100 acre "Oldman's Folly". In 1720 she bought 200 acre "Roper's Increase" (perhaps part of the original of which her husband had bought 79 acres in 1705), 50 acre "Howard's Addition", and 120 acre "Poplar Spring Garden" in Baltimore County at the head of the Patapsco River, adjacent to "Howard's Ridge".[30]

"Pleasance died in 1734. Her estate was appraised 14 August 1734, by Benjamin HOWARD and John HAMMOND, son of Charles. Her possessions included some items that had been in her first husband's inventory. Pleasance had wearing apparel, a silver tankard and cups, a silver spoon, thimble, and buckles, 3 silk handkerchiefs, taylor's shears, 2 small punch bowls, 4 ivory handled knives and forks, a pepper box, 1 caster, 1 tin baster, 1 flesh fork, 1 cutting knife and 1 pen knife, 2 chests, a pair of spectacles, 2 "Turkey-workt" chairs, 6 old books (unspecified), furniture and kitchen utensils, stock and feed, one old Negro man named Tom, one old Negro woman named Beck, and one Negro lad named George.[31]

From Side-Lights on Maryland History, vol. 2, pp. 212-213:

"This Charles Ridgely married Deborah Dorsey, the daughter of Honorable John Dorsey and Pleasance Ely. Of this lady the family records say between her name and her disposition there was no similarity."

Ibid., pp. 87-91:

"...It was at the house on Prince George's Street that Major Edward Dorsey lived during the lifetime of his first wife, Sarah Wyatt, while the Honorable John Dorsey, captain of the Baltimore County militia in later years, took possession of Hockley, three miles from Annapolis, over which his wife, Madam Pleasance Ely, presided, of whom it has been noted--perhaps as a warning to her descendants, that her name was in no sense suggestive of her disposition.

"Certain it is that the amiable Sarah, wife of Major Edward Dorsey, died, after bearing six sons and two daughters to her liege lord, while 'Pleasance,' of austere memory, buried the 'Honorable John,' and was led a second time to the altar by Thomas Wainwright."

It reads: 'My wife, Plesance, is to have one-third of my estate, and also the choice of my estate on South River, or my now dwelling place on Elk Ridge...

"Mrs. Plesance Dorsey became Mrs Robert Wainwright. Her tract, 'The Isle of Ely,' was sold by her grandson, 'Patuxent John Dorsey,' to Basil Dorsey, of Caleb, whose homestead, 'Troy Hill,' was the former residence of Hon. John Dorsey."

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 101-103:

THE BEALE FAMILY

A Scottish family, with a ringing bell as its coat of arms, was early represented in our province.
The leader was a famous officer, Colonel Ninian Beale, born in Fifeshire, or near Edinburgh, about 1625. Having fought, in 1650, against Cromwell at Dunbar, he was captured and transported to Calvert County, Maryland.
This same immigrant was called the "Covenanter," whose zeal caused him in some way, to be mixed up with the killing of a Bishop Montgomery, in an effort to keep Episcopacy out of Scotland.
He came, in 1655, and located in Calvert County. Intelligent and of a strong character, he at once became a leader in the contests of that period.
He was with Colonel Coursey and Colonel William Stephens, "When they sent Captain Beale before them to find Captain Brandt." Information being delivered into his lordship's hands by Captain Ninian Beale, it was ordered to be entered in the Council book; and by his lordship's special command, power be given to Captain Ninian Beale, of Calvert County, to press man and horse anytime, upon urgent occasion, to give his lordship intelligence." ordered, also, at the same time, "that six men in arms, under Captain Ninian Beale, be commanded out to continue ranging between the head of the Patuxent, up to the Susquehanna, forth for discovery of the Indian enemy." Captain Beale, in 1689, signed the Declaration of Remonstrance, in which it was declared, that "All rumors of an Indian invasion, supported by Catholics, were found to be false."
For Captain Beale's services he was granted an estate that extended over several counties. He surveyed near the National Capitol, and upon one of his surveys, a number of Presbyterian families were induced to settle. One of his tracts was the "Rock of Dumbarton." Geoirgetown stands upon this survey. There was another one at Bennings, and still another at Collington, Prince George County. Here was located Ninian Beale, Jr., the testator of 1710, who named only two children, Mary and Samuel. His sister, Jane, daughter of colonel Ninian and Ruth Moore, married Colonel Archibald Edmonson, whose daughter, Ruth Edmondson, married Rev. John Orme, who married Elizabeth Johns, whose daughter, Charlotte Orme, becaue Mrs. Daniel Douglass. Colonel Ninian died, 1717, age ninety-three years.

Noted events in his life were:

• Fought: against Cromwell at Dunbar, 1625.

• Transported to: Calvert County, Maryland, 1655.

• Signed: Declaration of Remonstrance, 1689.

Ninian married Ruth Polly Moore in 1668 in Calvert, Maryland, (United States). Ruth was born between 1648 and 1652 in St. Mary's, Calvert, Maryland, (United States) and died in 1707 in Prince George's Co., Maryland, (United States).

         ii.  Ninian Beale Jr. died after 1709.

        iii.  Jane Beale

         iv.  Colonel George Beale was born in 1695 in Upper Marlborough, Maryland, (United States), died on 15 Mar 1780 in Georgetown, Maryland (District of Columbia), (United States) at age 85, and was buried in Presbyterian Cemetery (Oakhill), Georgetown, Maryland (District of Columbia), (United States).253

Death Notes: Died intestate.

According to one source, he died about 1658 in the West River Hundred, Anne Arundel County. That may have been a different person.

Research Notes: I have been unable thus far to find reliable information on the parents of Major Richard Ewen. kjf 4/6/2010.
----------

Was an immediate neighbor of Edward Lloyd on the Magothy on the north side of the Severn, in the neck, just opposite Annapolis, Maryland. He also held a good amount of property in other Maryland locations.

-----------

From Helene Stone (helenestone@yahoo.com) 21 Sep 2009:
"My records show that Richard Ewen patented land in Virginia in 1638 and came to Maryland in 1649."

------------

I verified that this information is correct. As yet undetermined, however, is whether Major Richard Ewen is the same individual as Richard Owens, who was one of the "non-conformists" (Puritans) who settled in Virginia in the 1630's and 1640's. The laws of the Virginia province required that its landholders adhere to the Church of England. Persons who did not do so were banished from the colony. This situation came to a head in 1648, when the Puritans had until October 1648 to conform to the Church. Instead of doing so, the majority of the Virginia settlers, invited by the Protestant governor of Maryland, William Stone, relocated to Maryland, where they were given patents for undeveloped land. A good description of these events can be found in Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 5-10.

As evidence that there were likely two individuals of similar names (Richard Owens and Richard Ewen) in the same places and times, both men are mentioned in Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, in successive and different contexts. Richard Owens was among the Puritan landholders in Virginia who relocated to Maryland in 1648 or 1649. From that book, page 8:

"[John Hammond, the historian,] declares, 'Maryland was considered by the Puritans as a refuge. The lord proprietor [Calvert, Lord Baltimore] and his governor [William Stone] solicited, and several addresses made for their admittance and entertainment into that province, under the conditions that they should have convenient portions of land assigned, the liberty of conscience and privilege to choose their own officers.'

"'After their arrival,' continues Hammond, 'an assembly was called throughout the whole county, consisting as well of themselves as the rest, and because there were some few papists that first inhabited, these themselves, and others, being different judgements, an act was passed that all professing Jesus Christ should have equal justice.' And, 'At the request of the Virginia Puritans,' the oath of fidelity was overhauled and this clause added to it: 'Provided it infringe not the liberty of conscience.'

"This was confirmed in 1650.

"In confirmation of Hammond's statement, our 'Rent Rolls' show that Edward Lloyd, in 1649, was granted a permit to lay out one thousand acres on the western side of the Chesapeake Bay to the northward of the Patuxent River, and a small creek, about the middle of 'The Cliffs,' adjoining the lands of Richard Owens, there and to the northward of the Patuxent, not formally taken up yet.'"

The above is the Richard Owens whose land adjoined Edward Lloyd's north of the Patuxent, in the vicinity of "The Cliffs." Those tracts were a great distance south of the Magothy River (see below).

References to Richard Ewen by that name follow here. (Remember, Richard Owens and Richard Ewen were probably different individuals):

Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, p. 10:

"[In 1650 the house of Edward Lloyd, newly-made commander of Providence (Anne Arundel County) by Governor Stone's appointment] was the Council Chamber. His immediate neighbors were William Crouch, on the Severn; Richard Young, on the Magothy; Ralph Hawkins, of the Magothy; Richard Ewen, of the Magothy; William Hopkins, Thomas Browne, John Browne, Henry Catlyn, John Clarke were all near the Commander upon North Severn."

Ibid., p. 13:

"HERRING CREEK HUNDRED"

"Samuel Chew laid out Herrington.

"[In 1649 and 1650] Thomas Marsh took up lands on the west side of Herring Creek, beginning at Parker's Branch, and running to Selby's Cove; he also held a thousand acres adjoining Richard Bennett, running up the bay... [Edward Selby] adjoined Thomas Meeres on the west side of South River, next to John Watkins; in all some 1000 acres. William Parker adjoined Thomas Marsh on Herring Creek, and also, Richard Bennett, Sampson Warring, and Thomas Davis on the bay, holding 1200 acres. William Durand adjoined Edward Selby, running down the bay; John Covell adjoined William Durand; Thomas Emerson adjoined William Parker; Captain Edward Carter, near Herring Creek, adjoined William Ayers, whose lands were assigned him by Thomas Marsh. Richard Ewen adjoined Richard Bennett and Richard Talbott, on Herring Creek. Richard Wells, Chirurgeon, was on the west side of Herring Bay, adjoining Stockett's Creek, holding 600 acres. The three Stockett brothers were on Stockett's Run; they did not come from Virginia... Richard Bennett held thousands of acres at Herring Creek, and later as many more upon the Eastern Shore."

Ibid., pp. 27-29:
"[After the 'Battle of the Severn' on 25 March 1655] In 1657, Captain [William] Fuller called an Assembly to meet at the home of Colonel Richard Preston, on the Patuxent. The lower house consisted of ten members, with Colonel Richard Ewen speaker. There were present, besides the speaker, Captain Robert Sley, Captain Joseph Weeks, Mr. Robert Taylor, Captain Thomas Besson, Mr. Peter Sharp, Captain Phil Morgan, Mr. Richard Brooks and Mr. James Johnson. They confirmed the 'Act of Recognition.' On the 30th of November, 1657, Lord Baltimore and Richard Bennett completed their compromise. In substance it was an agreement by Lord Baltimore to overlook the disturbance of the Severn; to grant patents of land to all the Puritan settlers who could claim them, by taking an altered oath of fidelity,--whilst the law granting freedom of religion should stand as proclaimed in 1649. Bennett and Matthews signed the agreement with Lord Baltimore. Governor Fendall, who had been called to England for further instructions, returned to the province in 1658. He called his council together at St. Mary's, and sent letters [to those composing the government at Providence], desiring them to give him and his secretary, Captain Thomas Corwallis, a meeting at Leonard's Creek, in Patuxent River, upon March 18th, following...

"On account of the stormy season, the delegates of Anne Arundel did not arrive until the 20th. They were Captain Wm. Fuller, Mr. Richard Preston, Mr. Edward Lloyd, Mr. Thomas Meeres, Mr. Philip Thomas, and Mr. Samuel Withers...

"After the lapse of six years, his Lordship's dominion was again restored, yet the settlers were still independent. Governor Fendall and his secretary had, in 1657, at a meeting on the Severn, taken up the settlement of Anne Arundel and ordered, 'That Wm. Burgess, Thomas Meeres, Robert Burle, Thomas Todde, Roger Grosse, Thomas Howell, Richard Wells, Richard Ewen, John Brewer, Anthony Salway and Richard Woolman, gentlemen, should be commissioners for said county, to appear by summons of the sheriff, at the house of Edward Lloyd, to take oath of Commissioners and Justices of the Peace, and that the 23rd instant should be the first court day.--(By order of the Governor and Secretary, Mr. Nathaniel Utie, at Anne Arundel, July 12th, 1657).'

"The warrant was issued by Captain John Norwood, Sheriff. Wm. Burgess, Thomas Meeres and Richard Ewen refused to take the oath of Commissioners of Justice, alleging, as an excuse, that it was not lawful to swear.

"Their pleas were refused and Captain Thomas Besson, Captain Howell and Thomas Taylor were appointed in their stead.

"Then was taken up the establishment of militia force. It was resolved that the forces be divided into two regiments. One for the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers, commanded by the governor himself; the other, from the coves up to the Severn, and including the Isle of Kent, to be commanded by Nathaniel Utie, assisted by Captain John Cumber, Major Richard Ewen and Captain Thomas Howell, on South River, up to the head of it."

Ibid., p. 29:
"A writ was issued in 1657, to Captain John Norwood, to choose burgesses for an assembly to be held at St. Leonard's, in the County of Calvert. The assembly met at St. Leonard's in 1658. It was there enacted, 'That the oath of fidelity shall not be pressed upon the people of the province, but instead, a promise to submit to the authority of the Right Honorable Cecilius Lord Baltimore, and his heirs within the province, and that none should be disarmed.'

"This was agreed to by Captain Josias Fendall and Philip Calvert, principal secretary. It was also assented to by the Upper and Lower House of Burgesses."

----------
From Baltimore: Its History and Its People, Vol. III pp. 794-5:

"Major Richard Ewen, who came to Maryland in 1649, demanded and received from the government a grant of one thousand acres of land for transporting himself, his family, and three other persons to the colony 'at his own expense'. He was a prominent man, having been appointed and served on several commissions, was for many years a member of the House of Burgesses, during a part of which time he acted as its speaker. He married Sophia ___________, who survived him and married (second) Colonel William Burgess, also a prominent man in the community. They had one child, Susanna, who married Major Nicholas, son of Hon. Henry and Jane (Lowe) Sewall, of Mathapany, on the Pautuxent. Jane (Lowe) Sewall married (second) Charles, third Lord Baltimore. Dr. Christopher Johnson was a descendant of Major Nicholas and Susanna (Ewen) Sewall."

From Side-Lights on Maryland History, Vol. 2, p. 427:

"...Major Richard Ewen, one of the commissioners to govern Maryland under Oliver Cromwell. .. Major Richard Ewen, father-in-law of William Richardson, was one of the Council of War after the battle of the Severn, which condemned Governor Stone and others to die."

----------

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=jhmjr&id=I15021, which quotes Craycrofts of Maryland and Kentucky Kin, p. 15:

"... Major Richard Ewen was one of ten commissioners appointed 22 July 1654, by Bennett and Claiborne, to direct the affairs of Maryland under Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England. The Puritans called a General Assembly at Patuxent in 1654, barring Catholics and those who bore arms against Parliament, and passed The Act of Recognition 20 October 1654 enacting laws for the governing of the Province.

Ewen served twice as speaker of the Lower House. He served as speaker in the session of the General Assembly called 24 September 1657, during Cromwell's rule in England. He was a burgess from Anne Arundel County in the session of the Assembly called at Lord Baltimore's direction 28 February 1660, and served as speaker of the Lower House for the second time. It was during this session and under Ewen's leadership as speaker that it was resolved that the Assembly should continue as a bicameral legislative body.

Capt. Richard Ewen was one of the commissioners present at a Provincial Court 13 August 1655. He subsequently was commissioned as a major of the militia 12 July 1658. On 22 July 1658 be was asked to take an oath of office but Major Ewen desired to be excused because of his military appointment, and his excuse was allowed. Another commissioner was appointed in his stead.

Richard Ewen immigrated to Virginia and transported Nicholas Ewen and Christopher Roades. He received a patent for 150 acres of land in Norfolk Co., Virginia, 14 August 1638 for his own personal adventure and the transportation of two persons. He assigned his right to this tract of land to John Wright in July 1643.

He entered Maryland in 1649 and was granted 1,000 acres of land in Herring Creek Hundred on West River. He received a grant of 350 acres of land south of Patapsco River 19 November 1652, and a grant of 600 acres of land on the Severn River 26 November 1652.

During the Cromwellian regime in England, Gov. William Stone was displaced from his authority in Maryland. He attempted to reestablish himself as governor and entered the northern stronghold by boat. In the ensuing battle of the Severn, Capt. Richard Ewen commanded one of the "Trayn Bands of Patuxent," a company of militia. Three days following the defeat and capture of Stone and fifty of his men, Ewen was one of the eight members of the council of war who condemned Stone and eight other men to death, four of whom were executed." [Note, one of the four was Thomas Hatton, the uncle of Elizabeth Hatton who married Luke Gardiner]

Maj. Richard Ewen died intestate. He named five of his children, Elizabeth, Richard, John, Susanna, and Ann, in his demand for 1,000 acres of land in 1650."

From Some Prominent Virginia Families, p. 340:

"[Richardsons] came with the Chews, Coles, Thomases, Ewens, Sparrows, Hutchens and Pierponts. Some of [Elizabeth Richardson's] immediate ancestors were prominent men in the early history of the Colony. Among them was William Richardson, a leading citizen of Anne Arundel Co., for many years a member of the General Assembly. He came to Maryland with Maj. Richard Ewen, before 1650. He was a Major in the forces of the Colony; Speaker of the Assembly several times; member of the Council, and one of the 'High Commissioners,' to govern Maryland under Protector Cromwell. Maj. Ewen was one of the first to take up land on the Patapsco River. On November 19, 20, 21, and 22, 1655, Lord Baltimore, Surveyor General, laid out tracts of land on the Patapsco River for several persons, including Maj. Ewen and Thomas Sparrow, also an ancestor of Elizabeth Richardson. The land taken up by Thomas Sparrow has since been known as 'Sparrow's Point.' John Chew and his son, Samuel Chew, were also members of the General Assembly and among the most prominent men in the Colony. Both left large estates for their day."

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/ewen/messages/180.html :
I have received information on Elizabeth Ewen Talbott and her father Major Richard Ewen through the Genealogical society of Rockingham & Stokes County, North Carolina where my line through William Richardson & Elizabeth settled generations later. William Richardson was a prominent Quaker and had a home in West River Maryland with Elizabeth. The article was written by Wm L. (Butch Johnson)

The Ewen family settled in Maryland in 1649 and it appears that Elizabeth Ewen was possibly married at that time, which would indicate that Richard Talbott was her second husband. In 1650 May 17th, Richard Ewen demandeth One Thousand Acres of land for transporting himself and nine persons into this province the last year Vizt. Sophia his wife Eliza Davy, Richard Ewen Jr., John Ewen, Suzanna Ewen, Ann Ewen, William Davies, John King and James Brown at his own Charges. Tester James Cox. John Hall Warrt. to lay out One Thousand Acres of Land for Richard Ewen at Parson's Neck upon Kent County or in any part of that or Anne Arundel County rct by Michas next.

The origin of the Ewen family is not known with any certainty. One Richard Ewen immigrated to Virginia where he received 150 acres of land in the Upper County of New Norfolk "Due for his personal adventure & transportation of two persons: Nicholas Ewen and Christopher Roades." A possible clue to Richards Ewen's origins prior to coming to Virginia is to be found in the naming of his 600 acre grant of land on the Chesapeake Bay near the Severn River on November 26, 1652, which he called "Scotland."

Richard Ewen was active in the affairs of Maryland for about ten years. ...during 4 years nearly, he served as a member of the board of commissioners which (after Gov. Stone's submission) controlled the affairs of the Colony; at nearly every General Assembly he was one of the representatives of his county, and twice (or oftener) was speaker of the house of Burgesses: he was sheriff of the county,1664 and 1665;his duties as an officer of the militia, during about five years, were at times so exacting that he was obliged to decline (after the restoration of Lord Baltimore's government in 1658) the position of a commisioner of Anne Arundel Co.He was, perhaps, a member of the Governor's council at the time of his death.

2. Sophia Ewell SCARBOROUGH * was born in 1613 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. She lived in Plantation Ewengton, Maryland. She died in Annapolis, Anne Arundel, Maryland. She was a 6th g grandmother to Althea Current. She a 2nd great grandmother of Charles F. Carroll of Carrollton Manor. She was a 2nd great grandmother to Margaret Richardson.

Sophia Ewell SCARBOROUGH * and Maj. Richard EWEN * were married about 1625 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. Maj. Richard EWEN * (son of John EWEN and Ann (EWEN)) was born about 1605 in England. He died on 16 Apr 1669 in Annapolis, Anne Arundel, Maryland. He was a 6th g grandfather to Althea Current.

Ida Shirk states in her book "Descendants of Richard and Elizabeth (Ewen) Talbott of West River, Anne Arundel County, Maryland", that the Ewen family settled in Maryland in 1649 and is shown by a land warrant recorded in a book A. B. & H., page 40, Land Office , Annapolis, that on the 17th of May 1650 Major Richard Ewen demanded one thousand acres of land for transporting himself and nine person into this province....He then names these 9 people.

It is not known from where the Ewen's emigrated. There were Ewen's in Scotland and parts of England, and Ewen's were among the earliest settlers of Virginia.

No record of Major Richard Ewen's will, or inventory or administration of his estate has been found. His ten years in Maryland were active and eventful years. During four years he served as a member of the board of commissioners which controlled the affairs of the Colony; at nearly every General Assembly he was one of the representatives of his county, and twice or oftener was speaker of the House of Burgesses: he was sheriff of the county, 1664 and 1665; his duties as an officer of the militia during about five years were at times so exacting that he was obliged to decline the position of a commissioner of Anne Arundel Co. He was survived by a widow and children, the last being Elizabeth, the only one born in Maryland.

Richard married Sophia Scarborough 230 232 233 about 1625 in <England>. Sophia was born about 1613 in <England> and died before 1685 in Maryland, (United States). Other names for Sophia were Sophia Ewell Scarborough and230 Suffa Scarborough.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  John Ewen was born before 1630 in <England> and died in 1669 in <Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States)>.

769      ii.  Elizabeth E. Ewen (born on 6 Jun 1630 in <Accomack, Virginia, (United States) or England> - died on 1 Jan 1704 in "Poplar Knowle", West River, Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States))

        iii.  Richard Ewen of Ewenton was born in 1640 in <Upper New Norfolk, Virginia, (United States)> and died in 1675 in <Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States)> at age 35.

         iv.  Susanna Ewen was born in 1641 in <Upper New Norfolk, Virginia, (United States)> and died about Jan 1664 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States) about age 23. Other names for Susanna were Susannah Ewen and Suzanna Ewen.

1539. Sophia Scarborough 230 232 233 was born about 1613 in <England> and died before 1685 in Maryland, (United States). Other names for Sophia were Sophia Ewell Scarborough and230 Suffa Scarborough.

Birth Notes: Some sources say she was born in Maryland, but it is more likely that she was born in England, possibly also married there. Anne Arundel County was not founded until around 1649/1650.

Research Notes: A small handful of sources show Sophia Scarborough's father as Mathias or Mathew Scarborough. As I have been unable to find corroborating evidence, this name does not appear in my genealogy. A generation later, there was a Mathias Scarborough who was prominent in Maryland and well documented, but unrelated as far as I can determine.

The reliability of the following is also in question since Anne Arundel County was not founded until the mid-17th century.

From http://thecityobserver.org/scarborough/b27402.htm#P27402 :

2. Sophia Ewell SCARBOROUGH * was born in 1613 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. She lived in Plantation Ewengton, Maryland. She died in Annapolis, Anne Arundel, Maryland. She was a 6th g grandmother to Althea Current. She a 2nd great grandmother of Charles F. Carroll of Carrollton Manor. She was a 2nd great grandmother to Margaret Richardson.

Noted events in her life were:

• Lived: on Plantation Ewengton, Maryland.

Sophia next married Colonel William Burgess 259 260 261 between 1658 and 1660 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States). William was born about 1622 in Marlborough, Wiltshire, England, died on 24 Jan 1686 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States) about age 64, and was buried in "Mt. Stewart", Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States).

Burial Notes: From Historic Graves of Maryland, p. 12:
The inscription on Colonel Burgess' tomb is:
Here lyeth ye body of Wm. Burgess Esq who departed this life on ye 24 day of Janu Anno Domini 1686 Aged about 65 yrs. Leaving his dear beloved wife Ursuhla & Eleven children viz: seven sons and four daughters and 8 grandchildren.

His loving wife Ursulah hid Execut. in testimony of her true responce and due regard to the worthy desserts of her dear departed husband,m hath erected this memorial.

Research Notes: 2nd husband of Sophia Scarborough Ewen.

From Historic Graves of Maryland, p. 11:
"Another interesting cluster of graves is to be found on a farm belonging to the late General Steuart. It retains the name of Mt. Stewart, differently spelled, being after that of a former owner, Anthony Stewart, whom we shall have occasion to mention later. Here remain in a fairly good state of preservation the Burgess tombs. Col. William Burgess, who lived here in the seventeenth century, took an active part in the life of the period, holding among other offices, that of councillor, and having also served as deputy governor and as general of the military forces of the Province.

"As he married three times, he left a number of descendants, some of whom are interested in having these tombs removed from the field where heretofore they have been carefully protected to the more certain shelter of St. Anne's at Annapolis. Colonel Burgess married, first, Miss Elizabeth Robins, daughter of Edward Robins of Accomac county, Va., secondly, Mrs. Sophia Ewen, widow of Maj. Richard Ewen of Anne Arundel county, who left children, and, thirdly, Ursula, who survived him and becamse the wife of Mordacai Moore. Madame Ursula Moore died December 12, 1700, and was buried by the side of her first husband.

"Among the old Maryland wills, two testators mention the children of Col. William Burgesss: George Puddington makes George, William, Susanna and Edward legatees, while Nicholas Painter leaves property to Charles, William, Benjamin, Joseph, Elizabeth and Anne."

From http://www.pa-roots.org/data/read.php?1108,410563,410563 :

He died January 24, 1686, aged sixty-four years, and willed several thousand acres of land; among the tracts were, 'Betty's Choice,' 'Morley's Lott,' 'Bednall's Green,' 'Benjamin's Choice,' 'Benjamin's Addition,' 'West Puddington' 'Beard's Habitation,' 'Bessington,' and 'Burgess Choice,' 'and 1800 acres on one part whereof is a Town appointed called London,' and his message land to five of his seven sons, as sons, Edward and George, had been provided for before his will. His wife, Ursula, received the rest of his estate here and in England. His four daughters received money, plate and other personals. His seal-ring of gold was willed to his daughter, Susannah, wife of Major Nicholas Sewall, who was the daughter of Colonel Burgess, by his wife, the former Mrs. Richard Ewen. Colonel Burgess was of Wilts, England, coming in 1650 to South River, and had reached Virginia previously. Colonel Burgess bore arms, as the existing impression of his seal reveals, of a family of Truro, in Cornwall, but was akin to the Burgesses of Marlborough, Wilts County. His son Captain Burgess' wife, Sarah, was the daughter of Colonel Samuel and Ann (Ayres) Chew, the Quakeress, only daughter and heiress of William Ayres, of Nansemond County, Virginia, mentioned there in 1635.

COLONEL WILLIAM BURGESS (1622-1686), settled first in Northampton County, Va., but followed Governor William Stone to Maryland, and settled on South River, bringing there a company of one hundred and fifty "adventurers." In 1661, he was in command of the South River Rangers; in 1664, he was High Sheriff of Anne Arundel County, and in 1665 he was Commander-in-chief of all the forces of the five western shore counties. He was a member of the Council of the State of Maryland, a Justice of the Provincial Court, and a Deputy-Governor from 1678 to 1683.2 He married Elizabeth, the daughter of Edward Robins, who was born in England 1602, and came to Virginia 1615, in the bark Thomas; he lived in Northampton and Accomac Counties, and built "Newport House," now Eyreville.

EDWARD BURGESS (1651-1703), went to Maryland with his father, Colonel William, and was a Justice of the Provincial Court of Anne Arundel County, and one of the Quorum 1685; also "Captain of the Foote." He married Sarah, the daughter of Samuel and Anne (Ayres) Chew. Their daughter, Sarah, married Benjamin Gaither.

Historic Graves of Maryland and the District of Columbia By Helen West Ridgely, National Society of the Colonial Dames of America;

On the other side of Annapolis, across the Severn river and on the road to "Whitehall," lies "Bellefield," ... Another interesting cluster of graves is to be found on a farm belonging to the late General Steuart. It retains the name of Mt. Stewart, differently spelled, being after that of a former owner, Anthony Stewart, whom we shall have occasion to mention later. Here remain in a fairly good state of preservation the Burgess tombs. Col. William Burgess, who lived here in the seventeenth century, took an active part in the life of the period, holding among other offices, that of councillor, and having also served as deputy governor and as general of the military forces of the Province. As he married three times, he left a number of descendants, some of whom are interested in having these tombs removed from the field where heretofore they have been carefully protected to the more certain shelter of St. Anne's at Annapolis. Colonel Burgess married, first, Miss Elizabeth Robins, daughter of Edward Robins of Accomac county, Va., secondly, Mrs. Sophia Ewen, widow of Maj. Richard Ewen of Anne Arundel county, who left children, and, thirdly, Ursula, who survived him and became the wife of Mordacai Moore. Madame Ursula Moore died December 12, 1700, and was buried by the side of her first husband. Among the old Maryland wills, two testators mention the children of Col. William Burgess: George Puddington makes George, William, Susanna and Edward legatees, while Nicholas Painter leaves property to Charles, William, Benjamin, Joseph, Elizabeth and Anne.
Susanna is also mentioned by Susan Billingsly in her will made December 7, 1663. As this lady, the widow of James Billingsly, alludes also to her brothers Richard and John
Ewen, the sequence of names would lead one to suppose that family loyalty had gone so far as to cause the widow Ewen to name her daughter by her Burgess marriage after her
first husband's sister. The inscription on Colonel Burgess' tomb is :
Here lyeth ye body of Wm. Burgess Esq who departed this life on ye
24 day of Janu Anno Domini 1686 Aged about 64 yrs. Leaving his dear beloved wife Ursuhla & Eleven children viz: seven sons and four daughters and 8 grandchildren. In his life time he was a member of His Lordships Counsel of Estate, One of his Lordships deputy Governours a Justice of ye High Provincial Court Collon of a Regiment of the trained Guards and sometime Generall of all the Military forces of this Province. His loving wife Ursulah his Execut. in testimony of her true respect and due regard to the worthy deserts of her dear departed husband, hath erected this Memorial.
On the tombs of his son, William, and his daughter, Anne,
are the following inscriptions :
Here lyeth the Body of William Burgess the eldest son that coll. William Burgess had by his Dear and Loveing wife Ursella, he departed this life the 28th Day of June in the . . . year of his age, Anno Domini 1698.
Here lyeth Interred ye Body of Anne the wife of Thomas Sparrow daughter of William Burgess and Ursulla his wife, who was born on Thursday the 7th of Oct. 1680 Married on Tuesday ye 8th June 1697 Sickened the 25th day of ye same month and dyed on Sunday ye 25 of July 1697. This stone is erected as a Lasting Memorial of the person above Mentioned, by her surviving husband Mr. Thomas Sparrow.

Noted events in his life were:

• Relocated: from Virginia to Maryland, 1650.

• Commander-in-chief: of all forces raised by St. Maries, Kent, Charles Calvert and Anne Arundel counties, 1665.

Other names for Edward were Edward D'Arcy and Edward Dorsey.

Birth Notes: Some sources have b. abt 1619

Christening Notes: Some source has him christened in 1619 in Queen Caroline Parish-Elk Ridge, Anne Arundel, but this is unlikely for two reasons:
1) He was not yet in North America in 1619
2) Queen Caroline Parish did not exist until 1728

Death Notes: Supposed to have drowned with several other people in a shipwreck off the Isle of Kent in the Chesapeake Bay on 2 August 1659. However, some researchers have argued that either a different Edward Darcy drowned or this Edward survived the shipwreck, as land transactions and other documents seem to indicate that he was living until at least 1667, but was deceased in November 1670.

From http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rawl/corneliuslloyd.html:
He [Edward Dorsey] died on 2 Aug 1659 in Chesapeake Bay. Edward Dorsey drowned in Chesapeake Bay, off the Isle of Kent, Maryland.

A petition in the Court records from Prov. Ct. Rec. S.I. f.282 the following: "At a Court holden in Anarundel County on Tuesday August 2nd, 1659: Whereas Thomas Hinson hath petitioned this Court, Showing the hee having taken up the Boate wherein Edward Doarcy and some others drowned, near the Isle of Kent, being desyred by the said Darcy's Overseer to take up the same, which he did, delivering the same Boate to the chiefe in Authority taking a discharge upon the Anarundell and now by his Petition craving for his paynes taken therein, as the Court now sitting shall adjudge him. It is ordered that the said Thomas Hinson have one hundred pounds of Tobacco payd him for the said paynes and Care, by those (Whoever they be) that possesse and enjoy the sd Boate."

Research Notes: The pedigree of Edward Darcy, the colonist, is uncertain. Recent DNA evidence points to an Irish, rather than Norman, heritage. The ancestors given here are those found in "traditional" sources, prior to any DNA research.

From Genealogical and Memorial Encyclopedia of the State of Maryland, pp. 610-611:

"The name Dorsey, was pronounced as if spelt 'Dossy,' and in fact it appears, at times, so recorded. It was also written 'Darcy,' from which circumstance a French origin has been claimed for the family; but there is evidence to indicate that the Maryland Dorseys had been located for a time, at least, in Ireland, prior to their arrival in America. That the family bore arms is proved by the seal to the original will (dated January 7, 1742), of Caleb Dorsey, of Anne Arundel county, which displays: 'on a fess between three wolf heads, a lion passant, guardant.'

"Edward Dorsey, also called 'Edward Darcy, Gentleman,' received in 1650 a warrant for two hundred acres of land in Anne Arundel county, Maryland, and a grant was issued to him on February 23, 1651, for two hundred acres additional... Edward Dorsey died prior to 1681, for on December 6th of that year, Edward Dorsey of Anne Arundel county, Gent., son of Edward Dorsey, late of said county, deceased, conveys his interest in 'Hockley-in-the-Hole' to his brother John Dorsey..."

http://www.rootsweb.com/~mdannear/firstfam/dorsey/index.htm has d. 1659 in Chesapeake Bay, off Kent Island MD. According to the above, that would mean that his son, Edward Jr., arrived in 1661after the original Edward Darcy was deceased. This source states that Edward Darcy was born in England.

From http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mdannear/firstfam/dorsey/index.htm:

"Descendants of Edward DORSEY,
boatwright of Lower Norfolk Co. VA and Anne Arundel Co., MD

"Edward Dorsey was among the first settlers of Anne Arundel Co. in 1649, coming from Lower Norfolk Co.,VA with other Puritans and Independents. His ancestry has been the subject of much debate over the last 80 years. Some of this debate can be read in the 1997 issues of the Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin. There are several genealogies on the family of Edward Dorsey. Among these are The Dorsey Family by Dorsey, Dorsey & Ball; Anne Arundel Gentry (first Edition), by Harry C. Newman, Anne Arundel Gentry Volume 2 by Harry C. Newman. Information on the family is also in The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties Maryland by J. D. Warfield (1905). I also believe there is a book about the Georgia desendants of Edward Dorsey. A couple of articles on Edward Dorsey's family have also appeared over the years in the Maryland Historical Magazine. There have also been some Dorsey newsletters including Dorsey Dreams which was published by Mrs. Lois Colette Bennington, and The Dorsey Project that was published quarterly by Mr. Donavon Dorsey of Benton City, Wash. I would recommend that people interested in this family to obtain copies of the above listed books for much in-depth material on the families.>/P>

"While, there is much controversy over the ancestry of Edward Dorsey, recent DNA testing seems to rule out claimed relations to the family of Thomas, Lord D-Arcy. However there are a few facts that should be considered with the history of the time and places. Edward Dorsey was in Lower Norfolk Co VA by 1642, when Cornelius Lloyd claimed land for transporting him to the colony. (The 1642 date is the claim for head rights to receive land for transporation of persons into Virginia, and not necessarily the date the person arrived in Virginia.) Edward Dorsey bought 200 acres in Elizabeth River Parish; in 1642 he bought cattle there (3 head of cattle from John Browne of the Elizabeth River District of Lower Norfolk Co., In the Cort Records B book of Lower Norfolk Co.; 15 April 1648: Henry Nichxxx appointed constable for the head of Eastern Branch beginning at Edward DORSEYS and so Upwards on both sides of said River including Richard Woodman's Plantation. On 20 Oct 1649 Robert Taylor sold Edward DORSEY 200 acres. This land is described by a deed dated 19 October 1647 recorded 31 Oct 1649: William Julian selling 200 acres of land to Robert Taylor of Elizabeth River, Planter, which is part of a patent of 500 Acres as being a Neck of land upon the south turning of ye Said River, East upon a creeke and South upon upon a creek north into ye woods as is bounded in the patent bearing date 22 July 1634, witnesss: Abraham Weekes and William Hancock. He witnessed by Edward E.D Dorsey. quit-claim deed Oct 1649 to Virginia land executed by Thomas Tod (Todd). This deed he signed Edward E D Dorsey

"Edward Darcy granted in November 1650 a warrant for 200 acres of land. & another 200 acres in 1651, half of a warrant for 400 acres he shared with John Norwood (Patents 11/folio 98)

"A little history of Virginia shows that Cornelius Lloyd and his brother Edward Lloyd were involved with Richard Bennet who was a puritan and advocate of the independent church, and endevored to establish a purtian settlement on the south shore of the James River in the late 1630s and early 1640s. It was among these Puritans or memeber of the Independent church with which Edward Dorsey associated. Given that we find Edward buying cattle in 1642, it is doubtful if he was an indentured servant. Rather, I suspect he was among young men and families (including college graduates) that were recruited for the Puritan settlement on the south shore of the James River. At this time England was in the early stages of the English Civil War, with King Charles I taking a hardline stance against the Indendent/Putitan and other sects that were not outside the Church of England.

"The provinical court records tell us of Edward Dorsey's death. 'Att a Court hoden in Anarundel County on tuesday August 2nd 1659: Whereas Thomas Hinson hath petitioned this Court, Showing that hee hauing taken up the Boate wherein Edward Doarcy & some others drowned, neare the Isle of Kent, being desyred by the sd Darcys overseer to take up the same, wch he did, delivering the same Boate to the chiefe in Authority taking a discharge upon the Anarundell & now by his Petn craving for his paynes taking therein, as the Court now sitting shall adjudege him. It is ordered that the sd. Thomas Hinson have one hundd pounds of Tob. payd him for the sd paynes and Care, by those (Whoever they bee) that possesse & enjoy the sd Boate.'

"In addition to the information on this site, I know of several people who have created their own web sites with Dorsey Genealogical Information. On the Internet there is a Dorsey Genealogy mailing list at rootsweb.com. The information on this website has been extensively updated in Feb 2009 . It presents material on 8 generations of Dorsey descendants including data from church records, census, graveyards, marriage licenses, and genealogies. The data is not complete. There are Dorseys that seem to belong to this family that have not been connected to Edward Dorsey's lineage. It is also noted that there is another early Dorsey family in Maryland which settled mostly in Calvert Co. and the Eastern Shore, at times this family used the spelling of Dossey as well as Dorsey. This family's progenitors were James, Ralph, and John D-arcy or Dorsey, kinsmen of Richard Preston of the Clifts in Calvert Co. MD. "

From Side-Lights on Maryland History, Vol. 2, pp. 87-91:

"Dorseys of Hockley

"Of all the distinguished officials whose presence with their families and retainers lent luster to the ancient capital [of Baltimore], none are more indelibly impressed upon the history of the Province than the early Dorsey brothers, sons of Edward Darcy who received his first warrant for land from the Lord Proprietary in the year 1650.

"In that year Edward Darcy, the original progenitor of the Hockley branch of the Dorseys of Maryland, received another grant for land adjoining his original warrant, the latter patented in connection with Captain John Norwood.

"These lands were in the year 1667 assigned to George Yate, Edward Darcy having in 1661 been granted a valuable estate in that part of St. Mary's County which in 1663 became a part of the newly erected County of Calvert. This was Teobush Manning patented to Edward Darcy and Thomas Manning, as shown in the Land Warrants, but incorrectly entered in Lord Baltimore's Rent Rolls for Calvert County, as belonging to 'Edward Darby.'

"Hockley-in-the-Hole, originally taken up by Edward Darcy, was in 1664 patented to his sons Edward, Joshua and John, the original patent bearing date August 20, 1664, being still in the possession of the present owner of Hockley, Miss Anne Elizabeth Dorsey, lineal descendant of all three of the original patentees. In the year 1681 'Edward Dorsey, Gent. of Ann Arundell County, Son and heir of Edward Dorsey late of said County deceased' assigned his right to his brother John. The parchment document granting Hockley to the three Dorsey brothers bears the autograph of Charles, third Lord Baltimore, and was given under the Great Seal of the Province."

------------

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland, p. 30:

"South-side Severn settlements were increased in 1662. Matthew Howard, who had come up from Lower Norfolk, Virginia, in 1650, with his neighbor and relative, Edward Lloyd, had died before 1659, but his five sons now came. They were Captain Cornelius Howard, of 'Howard's Heirship and Chance'; Samuel Howard, of 'Howard's Hope'; John Howard, of 'Howard's Interest'' all adjoining near Round Bay. Philip and Matthew were on North Severn. In 1664, the three sons of Edward Dorsey, the immigrant of 1650--relatives of the Howards--took up and patented their father's survey of 'Hockley-in-the-Hole.' They were Colonel Edward Dorsey, Joshua and Hon. John Dorsey, prominent leaders in political movements and representatives in legislative measures."

Ibid., pp. 55-56:

"In the Land Office of Annapolis, may be seen the following warrant, which explains itself:

"'Warrant MDCL, granted to Edward Dorsey, of Anne Arundel Co., for 200 acres of land, which he assigns as followeth; as also 200 acres more, part of a warrant for 400 acres, granted John Norwood and the said Dorsey, dated XXIII of Feb., MDCLI. Know all men by these presents that I, Edward Dorsey, of the County of Anne Arundel, boatwright, have granted, bargained and sold, for a valuable consideration, already received, all my right, title, interest of and in a warrant for 200 acres, bearing date 1650, and also 200 acres more, being half of a warrant of 400 acres--the one half belonging to Captain Norwood, bearing date, 1651, both of which assigned to George Yate.--Edward Dorsey, Sealed.'

"Signed in the presence of Cornelius Howard, John Howard, Oct. 22nd, MDCLXVII, (1667).

"That same year the same Edward Dorsey assigned to Cornelius Howard, his right for land for transporting seven persons into the province. Edward Dorsey and Thomas Manning held a certificate from Thomas Marsh, for 600 acres adjoining Captain Norwood. 'Norwood's Fancy,' held by Captain Norwood, was near Round Bay. 'Dorsey,' held by Edward Dorsey, gave the name to 'Dorsey's Creek,' upon which was located Thomas Gates, whose will of 1659, reads: 'I give to Michael Bellott and John Holloway my plantation. I desire that they give to Edward Dorsey's children free outlet to the woods and spring as formally I have given them.'"

Ibid., p. 56:

"The following record is taken from 'Our Early Settlers.'--A list of our early arrivels up to 1680.

"'Robert Bullen demands lands for bringing over a number of passengers, amongst whom was Edward Dorsey, in 1661.'

"The same record adds, 'Aug. 25th, 1664, patented to him, John and Joshua Dorsey, a plantation called "Hockley-in-the-Hole," four hundred acres.'

"In 1683, this land was resurveyed for John Dorsey, and found to contain 843 acres. 400 acres first surveyed being old rents remaining new, whole now in the possession of Caleb Dorsey.

"Such is the record of 'Hockley' upon our Rent Rolls, at Annapolis."

----

Ibid., p. 11:
[Around 1650] Nicholas Wyatt surveyed 'Wyatt's Harbor' and 'Wyatt's Hills,' upon which 'Belvoir' now stands, just south of, and in sight of Round Bay. Adjoining it was Thomas Gates, upon 'Dorsey's Creek,' near 'Dorsey,' taken up by the first Edward Dorsey, in partnership with Captain John Norwood."

From Lee Garlock:

Edward DORSEY/D'ARCY died in 1659 in Chesapeake Bay, off Kent Island MD. He was born in England. Was in Lower Norfolk Co VA by 1642, when Cornelius Lloyd claimed land for transporting him to the colony.

From Anne Arundel Gentry:
1642 - He bought 200 acres in Elizabeth River Parish; bought cattle there (3 head of cattle from John Browne of the Elizabeth River District of Lower Norfolk Co. [Lower Norfolk County Recrds, Book A, part III, page 36, source cited in Maryland Genealogies.]

From Maryland Genealogies, p. 387: Cites proof that Cornelius Lloyd used Edward Dorsey's headright as early as December 15, 1642.

Anne Arundel Gentry:
October 1649 - Witnessed by mark E.D. a quit-claim deed to Virginia land executed by Thomas Tod (Todd) in favor of James Allard, Abraham Parrott and Alexander Hall.. This deed he signed Edward E D Dorsey [Lower Norfolk County Records, Book B, page 134, source cited in Maryland Genealogies . All this suggests that Edward Dorsey was in Virginia for the seven years between the 1642 purchase from Browne and the 1649 quit claim.]

November 1650 - Edward Darcy granted a warrant for 200 acres of land and another 200 acres in 1651, half of a warrant for 400 acres he shared with John Norwood (Patents 11/folio 98)

1658 - Robert Clarkson, a Quaker convert, states in a letter of Ann Dorsey and her husband, both Converts (to Quakerism), Ann had abundant grace, but he doubted that her husband would stick to the faith. According to Newman, a letter of Thomas Hart dated 28 of the 2nd inst 1658 London, in which is embodied a letter of Robert Clarkson dtd. 14 of ye 11 mo. 1657 (which would be February) "..& likewise Ann Dorsey in a more larger measure, hir husband I hope abideth faithfull in his measure.."

1659 - Edward drowned off Kent Island. In Anne Arundel Court on 2 Aug. 1659, one
Thomas Hinson petitioned "for compensation for having taken up the boate wherein Edward Darcy and some otheres were drowned neare the Isle of Kent, being desyred by the said Darcy Overseer to take up the same which he did deliuery the same Boate to the chiefe in Authority. . . ."

36. Edward DORSEY24 was born before 1620 in England.20 He is believed to have been the son of Thomas D'Arcy. He immigrated in 1642 to State of Virginia.25 Edward Darcy/Dorsey lived several years in Virginia. On December 15, 1642, Cornelius Lloyd received a grant of land for bringing 60 persons into the colony of Virginia. Among those named was Edw: _orsey, the first letter of the last name is obliterated. (Minute Book, f 160) (New Eng Hist Gen Vol 47, f 63). On October 7, 1646, Thomas Brown was given 240 acres in Lower Norfolk County due by assignment of the right of 5 persons transported by Cornelius Lloyd, among them Edward Dorsey. (Patents 2, State of Virginia f. 113). He died on Aug 2 1659 in Chesapeake Bay.20 Edward Dorsey drowned in Chesapeake Bay, off the Isle of Kent, Maryland. A petition in the Court records from Prov. Ct. Rec. S.I. f.282 the following: "At a Court holden in Anarundel County on Tuesday August 2nd, 1659: Whereas Thomas Hinson hath petitioned this Court, Showing the hee having taken up the Boate wherein Edward Doarcy and some others drowned, near the Isle of Kent, being desyred by the said Darcy's Overseer to take up the same, which he did, delivering the same Boate to the chiefe in Authority taking a discharge upon the Anarundell and now by his Petition craving for his paynes taken therein, as the Court now sitting shall adjudge him. It is ordered that the said Thomas Hinson have one hundred pounds of Tobacco payd him for the said paynes and Care, by those (Whoever they be) that possesse and enjoy the sd Boate." Edward Dorsey, the immigrant, was gentleman and settler, first in Virginia and later in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. At a County Court held on November 3, 1645, at the home of William Shipp, it was recorded tat John Browne of Elizabeth River in the County of Lower Norfolk, VA, planter, had on the 11th of February, 1642 sold unto Edward Darsey of the county aforesaid, planter, three head of Cattle (Vixt) one Cowe aged about seaven yeares of a brinded coulor and marked with a cropp on the right eare and the left eare whole, and a steare of a color as aforesaid aged about one yeare and a halfe and marked with a cropp on the left eare and the right eare slitt allsoe, one heifar calfe brinded as aforesaid aged about three quarters of a yeare and marked with a cropp on both eares and a slitt in one and doe by these presents give graunt, bargaine and sell unto the said Edward Darsey his heirs and ecut(rs) administrator and assignes for ever for a valuable consideration pt in hand paid. Dated the 11th of February, 1642. (Minute Book A.f. 293, Lower Norfolk Co., Portsmouth, VA.) By 1650 Edward Darcy was in Anne Arundel County, Maryland where he was granted a warrent for 200 acres of land and another 200 acres in 1651, half warrent for 400 acres he purchased in partnership with John Norwood. (Patents 11; folio 98). In April 1657 Edward Darcy, (he refers to himself in this document as a "boatwright of Anne Arundel County"), sold to George Yate 200 acres granted to him in November of 1650 and half a warrent of 40 acres granted to himself and Capt. Norwood in February, 1651. In August 1668, Yates re-assigned to Edward Dorsey (son of Edward) 68 acres of above tract and later in the year assigned 60 additional acres called "Darsy." Edward bought 300 acres of land in 1655 from Thomas Marsh or March. By 1658 Edward Dorsey had land in the Province of Maryland. On February 27, 1658, Ensign Thomas Gates, who transported himself into the Province in 1649 was granted a parcell of land called "Gatenby" lying on the west side of the Chesapeake Bay, on the south side of the Severn River and north side of Darcy's Creek. In the will of Thomas Gates made May 2, 1659 he indicates that the Dorsey family was living on a nearby tract of land and desired and willed that his heirs "shall give to Edward Darcey's children a free outlet to the woods and also to the spring an inlet for their cattle as formerly they had in my time (Wills 1, f.105). Due to failure to obtain patents, carelessness of clerks and fire which destoyed early records at Annapolis, it has become virtually impossible to locate the land of Edward Darcy/Dorsey. (Arch of Md, 111, f 250) Descriptions of surveys which were recorded after the fire of 1706, however, show that Thomas Todd was located on the south side of the Severn River between Todd's Creek (later Spa Creek) and Deep Cove Creek which was known as Darcy's Creek in the 1658 surveys. The name of the creek was later changed to Sprigg's Creek, then to Graveyard Creek and finally to College Creek. Information regarding the names of these creeks was furnished by Mr. Trader of the Land Commissioner's Office, Annapolis, Md. To the west and north across Darcy's Creek, which no doubt bears the name of the immigrant, were the tracts taken up by Edward Dorsey and Capt. John Norwood, with the land of Nicholas Wyatt lying between them. Farther up the Severn River near Marshes Creek, later called Hockley Creek, was the land taken up by Matthew Howard. Adjoining this land on the south was the tract called "Wyatt", laid out for Nicholas Wyatt. Nearby was Hockley-in-ye-Hole, taken up by Edward Dorsey and later patented by his three sons, Edward, Joshua, and John Dorsey. The date of the original grant for "Hockley" in ye Hole" (Hole being Old English for Valley) was 1664 and wassigned and sealed by Charles, third Lord Baltimore. That grant was in possession of a descendant having been handed down with the land to the eighth generation. He was married to Ann ---- before 1648.20,26 In 1658 the Quakers came into Maryland spreading their religion among the settlers, claiming as converts, Nicholas Wyatt, Edward Dorsey and Ann, his wife and many others. A letter written by Robert Clarkson, a Quaker convert, to Elizabeth Harris, then in England shows that the Dorseys did embrace the faith. He writes that Ann Dorsey had abundant grace, but he seemed doubtful that her husband would stick to the faith. (MD Hist Mag XXXII, 47). "Quakers in the Founding of Anne Arundel County, Maryland" states that, "Ann and Edward Dorsey, mentioned by Clarkson as 'convinced Quakers' were founders of the Dorsey family of Maryland. Their sons were Edward, Joshua, and John. Edward Dorsey's land, 'Dorsey' was on Dorsey, now College, Creek. He surveyed 'Hockley in Ye Hole,' which was granted to his three sons on January 27, 1663 (Patents, Liber 7 f.378) after his death by drowning. (Dorsey Book)" The list of those convinced of the truth of Quakerism includes, "founding settlers and leading citizens of the county, and some were of armorial families. The list constitutes a high tribute to the labors of Elizabeth Harris, Maryland's first Publisher of Truth." There was an apparent attempt to restrict the activities of Friends in the Province of Maryland. Sometime around 1658 Edward Dorsey took up a tract of land containing 400 acres, lying in Anne Arundel County on the south side of the Severn River and or a branch of Broad Creek. This tract was later patented by his three sons. See Patents 7, f.378.

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/dorsey.html:

"Most of the older Dorsey genealogies assume that our immigrant Edward is descended from the Norman D'Arcy family. I must confess to jumping on that bandwagon myself. But new genetic research tosses this out the window. A Dorsey family DNA project that started in 2002 has resulted in an excellent web page <http://www.contexo.info/DorseyDNA/LineageI.htm> that points strongly to an Irish branch of the family that has had no "paper trail" documenting a link to our Maryland emigrant, Edward Dorsey. The Irish cousins date from the nineteenth century, so there must be an older common ancestor from the early seventeenth century, or still farther back. The Anglo-Norman D'Arcy/Dorsey men who have participated in a DNA project are clearly of a quite different genetic stock from Edward and the Irish cousins. My thanks to Rick Saunders, who brought this to my attention. As he explains, "If you go to the Results page <http://www.contexo.info/DorseyDNA/Results800.htm> you can compare the lines of Edward DORSEY, and the French-Norman DARCY line more readily. Not only are the results not close, but their haplotypes (R1b and E3b) are different."[1]

"Of the seven references in sixteenth and seventeenth century British records to Edward Dorsey (with nearly as many spellings), the only one that is at all likely to be our ancestor is No. 16 in the Exchequer Record of the King's Remembrancer: "Edward Darcie -- lycensed April 18th 1632, aged thirteen, to go with his master Richard Gips to Berghen." Translated, this means the young teenager had permission to leave England with Richard Gips, or GIBBS, either as an apprentice, servant, or ward, probably to Bergen op Zoom in the Netherlands. It was easier to get a license to go to Europe than to the new world. It would be relatively easy to travel from the Netherlands to Virginia, perhaps by way of Barbados.[2] However, there is as yet no proof that this is our man. I am unaware of any research of Irish records of the period, looking for an Edward Dorsey.

"One way or another, Edward Dorsey1 managed to emigrate from the British Isles (exactly where, Ireland or England, is unclear) to Virginia. Perhaps he came via by a circuitous route through The Netherlands, or more possibly, he was transported by Cornelius LLOYD (see below). So far I have found no record of when he married his wife, Ann. A common assumption is that she was Ann BACHE, since Ann Do?y was mentioned in the 1662 will of her brother Humphrey Bache, a Londoner who became a Quaker. Humphrey's daughter Elizabeth married William HARRIS in 1649 in St. Mary's Abchurch.[3] Elizabeth Harris became a well-travelled and well-known Friends minister. However, a direct descendant named Edward Dorsey has examined the probate record of Humphrey Bache. He concludes: "The reference to his sister Anne lists her last name as Do?y where the "?" could be a "u" or "n" (quill pens were not reliable) -- but, comparing the letter to others in the document, I can't see how it could be much else."[3a] While misspellings and mis-translations were not uncommon in probate records it seems a bit of stretch to get Dorsey from Douy or Dony.

"In May 1638 another pair of our ancestors, Matthew HOWARD <../southern/howard.html> and his wife Ann, were granted land in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, on the western branch of the Elizabeth River, south of Broad Creek. In the immediate vacinity were grants to Robert TAYLOR, Edward LLOYD, Richard OWEN, and Cornelius LLOYD. The year before, Matthew Howard had with him "two persons unnamed", one of whom might have been 17- or 18-year old Edward Dorsey. Although a male could own land at the age of 16, obviously Edward did not. In fact, throughout his life he seemed to be curiously careless about registering his land. This may have been because an oath was required, and he may have early felt a scruple against swearing that would eventually find full fruition in the Quaker testimony. It is suggested that young Edward was in Virginia by 1636, or even as early as 1635, and he stayed near Richard Owen and John Howard.[4] For three generations these families stayed together and intermarried.

"There is a 1642 contract for Edward's purchase of three cattle (a cow, steer, and calf), with descriptions of each animal, indicating that he had some disposable wealth and was not indentured. When the County Court met 15 December 1645, at the house of William SHIPP, it ordered Thomas TOD to pay Edward "Darcy" and Thomas HALL forty pounds of tobacco apiece "for theire tyme and charge in attendance of the Court for two days." On 10 December 1649 Edward witnessed a quit-claim deed executed by Thomas Tod; his signature reads "E D: Dorsy".[5]

"References to Edward Dorsey, with a variety of spellings, are found in the land records of Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, between 1642 and 1648. On 7 October 1646 Thomas BROWN was given 240 acres in Lower Norfolk County due by assignment of the rights of five persons transported by Cornelius LLOYD, including Edward Dorsey. On 15 December 1642 Cornelius Lloyd received a grant of land for bringing sixty people to the colony, including "Edw:_orsey" -- the first letter is illegible. Edward bought 200 acres in Lower Norfolk County on "a neck of land upon the south turning" of the Elizabeth River. The boundaries were further delimited: going "east upon a creek, and south upon a creek, and north into the woods". Dorsey's tract was on the point of land at the foot of present day Chestnut Street, and on it in the 1930s were the ruins of an old Marine Hospital. The land lies on Ferry Point and was once offered to the fledgling United States as a site for its capital. Dorsey styled himself a "boatwright" (i.e. involved in naval stores, perhaps, rather than actually building ships) and was probably in business with and for his near neighbor, Thomas TOD.[6]

"Apparently a number of settlers in Lower Norfolk County were not members of the established church, but were a variety of dissenters or nonconformists; some were Puritans. A ten-year controversy had raged between Governor BERKELEY and the more vocal Puritans that was both political and religious. When a few Roman Catholics immigrated into the colony in 1642 Berkeley saw his chance. The colony decreed that no "popish recusants" could hold any office. It also decreed that anyone holding office and refusing to take the "oath of allegiance and supremacy" should be dismissed from office and fined 1,000 pounds of tobacco. The following year it was enacted that all ministers must be conformed to the Church of England, and any nonconformists should be compelled to leave the colony.[7]

"Meanwhile farther up the Chesapeake Bay in 1637, Maryland forces had taken over Kent Island, which had originally been an outpost of Virginia. Lord Baltimore gave the settlers full civil and religious rights. In 1648 he specifically invited disgruntled dissenters to move from Virginia to his colony. He appointed the Virginia Protestant, William STONE, (apparently no relation to our William Stone) as his governor. Baltimore patronized the newly settled Protestants, who quickly moved into important political posts in both local and provincial government.[8]


"The lack of freedom of religion in Virginia, coupled with an invitation to move north, led between 400 and 600 settlers to migrate to Maryland, mostly to Anne Arundel and Calvert Counties. The larger group of immigrants, whose religious affiliations are not known, included Edward Dorsey, John NORWOOD <../southern/norwood.html>, Matthew HOWARD <../southern/howard.html>, Thomas TODD, and Nicholas WYATT and their families who settled in and around Annapolis. They had owned land near each other in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, and soon acquired tracts near each other along the Severn River in Maryland; their children and grandchildren intermarried. However, 15 November 1652 Edward and four others returned to Virginia where Francis FLEETWOOD got a grant of land for their transportation.[9] They soon returned to Maryland.

"In November 1650 Edward Dorsey was granted a warrant for 200 acres in Maryland, and in 1651 for another 200 acres. Lord Baltimore had instituted the English practice of granting and patenting tracts of land under proper names. Acreages named "Norwood", "Howard", "Todd", and "Wyatt" were laid out for other members of the group, with their locations specified in the records. Unfortunately, the location of Dorsey's land was not specified. Before 1655 Edward Dorsey, together with Thomas MANNING bought 600 acre "Theobush Manning" on the west side of Chesapeake Bay, south of Norwood's, north of the Bay. Perhaps because it was incorrectly entered on Lord Baltimore's Rent Rolls as belonging to Edward "Darby", the patent was not issued until 1661. Whenever he acquired it, eventually Edward Dorsey owned land that is now occupied by part of the Naval Academy and Bloomsbury Square in Annapolis.[10]

"In 1655 or 1556 Elizabeth (Bache) HARRIS, a British Friend, came to Maryland and found a receptive audience among the community of dissenters settled along the Severn and Patuxent Rivers, and among the unchurched folks on Kent Island. Many who heard her and worshipped with her were convicted inwardly and convinced of the Truth Friends proclaimed. She was followed in 1657-1658 by Josiah COALE from Bristol, Thomas THURSTON from Gloucestershire, and Thomas CHAPMAN. Among the new Friends in Maryland were Thomas MEARS, Nicholas WYATT, Edward and Ann DORSEY, Robert CLARKSON and his wife, John BALDWIN, Henry CAPLIN, Charles BALYE, Elizabeth BEASLEY, William FULLER, William DURAND, Thomas and William COLE, Henry WOOLCHURCH, and others.[11]

"A letter from Robert CLARKSON, member of the House of Burgesses from Anne Arundel County, to Elizabeth HARRIS, back in England, summarized Elizabeth's work and reported on the condition of local Friends:[12]

'Elizabeth Harris, Dear Heart, I salute thee in the tender love of the Father, which moved thee toward us and I do own thee to have been a minister by the will of God to bear the outward testimony to the inward word of truth in me and others. Of which word of life God hath made my wife a partaker with me and hath established our hearts in His fear, and likewise Ann Dorsey in a more large measure; her husband I hope abides faithful . . .

'We have disposed of the most part of the books which were sent, so that all parts where there are Friends are furnished and every one that desires may have benefit of them; at Herring Creek, Rhoad River, South River, all about Severn, the Brand Neck, and thereabouts the Seven Mountains and Kent. . . . '

"Echoing the political events in England, there had been a coup in Maryland against Lord Baltimore in 1654. But many dissenters, especially in Anne Arundel and Calvert Counties, and on Kent Island, were more loyal to Baltimore than to the new Puritan regime. William FULLER, acting governor after 1654, was convinced upon hearing Elizabeth HARRIS, and became a Friend. By 1658 definitely five, and perhaps as many as eleven of the 24 commissioners had become Quakers. Others had close ties with Friends.[13]

"Then Edward Dorsey was drowned with several other people off the Isle of Kent. On 2 August 1659 the Court paid Thomas HINSON 100 pounds of tobacco for raising the boat in which they had drowned, as desired by Dorsey's overseer. But was this our ancestor? Although the Dorsey family historians assume it was, genealogist Caroline BULKLEY thinks it was some other person with the same name. She discovered a 1667 deed referring to Edward Dorsey, boatwright, a designation never used by his son. Descendant Ed Dorsey, who examined the bill of sale, notes that "the seller declares himself to BE Edward Dorsey but did not use the word 'said' that was typically used when repeating a previous reference (to the purchaser). So we have to conclude that it really was the immigrant OR it was his son (after all they really were both Edward Dorsey). He does not specify that he is heir which he did with later documents. So either the immigrant was the seller OR, more likely, his son impersonated him." Another "curious case was the sale, again by the son, in 1664 of other property owned by his father which he just didn't get around to recording until November of 1670 (six years?). He then calls himself heir of the 'late' Edward Dorsey. So it appears to me that the immigrant was alive in 1667 but had died by November 1670."[13a] More conclusive, perhaps, was a reference by Edward Jr. to land "my father Edward Dorsey [had] from Thomas MARSH in 1661". Edward Jr. stated that his father was living in 1667, but by the time Edward Jr. transferred "Hockley-in-the-Hole" to his brother John in 1681, their father was dead. Edward Dorsey, either father or son, appraised the estate of Thomas TODD 12 May 1677.[14] Thomas was the old companion from Virginia with whom the elder Dorsey had worked on ships.

"The Dorsey family chroniclers found no further records of Ann Dorsey. They assumed she returned to Virginia. I assume she remained in Maryland near her children. Unfortunately the West River Friends minutes do not begin until 1671. Family historian Ed Dorsey thinks she went back to England with the immigrant Edward Dorsey.[15]

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=adgedge&id=I41174:

(1) Some researchers have attributed a daughter to Edward DORSEY a daughter Ann who married Nicholas GREENBERRY. There is no evidence that Edward DORSEY had a daughter named Ann. While Nicholas GREENBERRY's wife was named Ann, she could not have been a daughter of Edward DORSEY. Nicholas GREENBERRY did not emigrate from England to Maryland until 1674, at which time he arrived with his wife and two children. (Maryland Patent Liber 18 (Vol. 21):160 FHL microfilm 0,013,071.) Land was claimed in 1674 for Nicholas GREENBERRY, wife, and two children (not named) who were on the ship "Constant Friendship." His wife could not have been the daughter of Edward DORSEY, who had been living in the colonies for over 25 years.

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/norwood/messages/1247.html:

April 1667 - Edward Darcy, of the County of Anne Arundell, boatwright, sold to George Yate 200 acres granted to Darcy in Nov 1650 and half a warrant of four hundred acres granted to him and Capt. Norwood in Feb. 1651. In Aug 1668, Yates reassigned to Dorsey 68 acres of above tract and later in the year assigned 60 more acres called "Darsy." Edward bought 300 acres of land in 1655 from Thomas Marsh/March. His son Edward sold this tract Nov 6, 1670 to Thomas Manniage of the Cliffs.

A question arises as to whether the Edward Darcy who signed the paper in 1667 was the Edward Darcy who bought and sold land in the 1650s. Caroline Kemper assumes that it is the same person and that a different, unrelated Edward Dorsey died in a boating accident in 1659. Other historians think that Edward Dorsey one bought and sold the property in the 1650s but that his son signed the papers in the 1670s.

From Maryland Genealogies, "The Identity of Edward Dorsey I," by Caroline Kemper Bulkley, 1938, pp. 398-399:

The record in the Land Office (Liber II, [Margin Liber G G] (98)) reads: '(125) Edward Dorsey assigns to George Yate 400 acres: Warrant XI November M.D.C.L. (1650); to Edward Dorsey for 200 acres of land the which he assigned away as followeth; as also 200 acres more part of a warrant for 400 acres granted John Norwood and Edward Dorsey dated xxiiij February MDCLi (1651); said Dorsey of County of Ann [sic] Arundell, Boatwright, consideration already received, all my right, title, interest, claim and demand of an--in a warrant for 200 acres of land bearing date sixteen hundred and fifty [so written out] and also to 200 acres more being the one half of a warrant for 400 acres, the one half belong to Capt. Norwood bearing date one thousand six hundred fifty one unto George Yate, etc.'"

The date of this assignment, duly signed and sealed, is April 23, 1667, and the witness is John Howard, eldest son of the Virginia Matthew and Ann Howard. A year later (August 24, 1668) there is a deed filed from Yate to Dorsey for sixty-eight acres of the above "Dorsey" tract. In the same year one James Connoway assigned back the "right for 1000 acres" to George Yate, who transfers sixty acres to "Darsy." . . . .

It is contended that the Edward Dorsey who signed the records of 1667-1668 may have been the son Edward. This is highly improbable, since Edward Dorsey the younger could not have had land in his own rights from warrants cited of 1650 and 1651, nor did he ever name himself as "boatwright" in the documents known to bear his signature.

Those who deny that the record quoted was signed by Edward Dorsey, Senior, argue from the story many times repeated that he was drowned in 1659. No evidence has ever been produced to prove this: there is an authentic record of an Edward Dorsey who was drowned, but who the person was, or whether the name may be mistakenly recorded cannot be determined.

It is clear that the signer of the 1667-1668 deeds was the father Edward Dorsey, and as further testimony that he was alive after 1659 is a document assigning land--the Bush-Manning tract-- bought by "My father Edward Dorsey from Thomas Marsh in 1661." This same land is later confirmed to Manning in a warrant and power of attorney to Sheriff Stockett from Colonel Edward Dorsey, the son, giving these facts.

Noted events in his life were:

• Transported: to Virginia by Cornelius Lloyd, Bef 15 Dec 1642. 265

Some researchers have inaccurately listed her as Ann, daughter of Matthew HOWARD. While Matthew HOWARD did have a daughter named Ann, there is record of her husband being James GRENEFFE, who mentions wife Ann, "brother John HOWARD" and "brother Samuel HOWARD" in his will. (1c) She may have been the daughter of Humphrey BACHE of London, and the aunt of Elizabeth HARRIS, of Quaker fame. (2) Bef. 1646. England.

Ann ---- was Quaker in 1658 in State of Virginia.27 A letter from 1658 "for Elizabeth Harris signifieing, a good fruite of hir labours there for the Lord, wch heare ensueth:" Elizabeth Harris, Deare hearte; I salute thee in ye tender love of the father wch mooved in thee towards ye goode of god in us wch had longe leynn hid and bin made a pray upon by the dragon (who) first made ware with ye lambes and by his subteleties overcame but when ye apoynted time of the father was come he fulfiled the good word of his grace wch he spake by his sperit concereining his sonn, yt he would not leave his soule in grave nor suffer his holy one to see corruption it being impossible yet he could be houlden under of deth but by the powre of his resurreccion in mee, hee hath brocken those bonds and hath manifested that blessed life in his son whome hee hath raysed from the ded, wherein the second deth has no powre..." The writer of the letter goes on ..."God hath made my wife partakers with mee and haith established our heartes in his feare, & likewise Ann Dorsey in a more larger measure, hir husband I hope abideth faithfull in his measure likewise." [P15] An (Ann) Dorcey had apparently been requested to "visett An James." [P16] "We read every particuler, thy letter & the rest of the letters from the others of our friends therein att ye reading where of the measures of God in us who were together then present who were Edward Dorcy & his wife..." Ann Dorsey, wife of Edward is thought to have outlived her husband, and to have returned to their former home in Virginia, for no further record is found of her in Maryland.

From Snowdonia National Park (http://www.eryri-npa.co.uk/page/index.php?nav1=enjoying&nav2=9&nav3=22&lang=eng&view=graphic&contrast=1) :

"In 1645 during the Civil War, Rowland Vaughan, a famous poet and royalist lived in Caer-gai, approximately a mile from this spot. One day, some of the local inhabitants saw Oliver Cromwell's knights on their way to Caer-gai, and in an attempt to stop them they gathered some yew leaves, which is very poisonous to horses, and threw them in the stream knowing that the knights would stop there so the horses could drink. That is exactly what happened and the horses became ill, and since then the stream is known as Nant Gwenwyn Meirch (stream of horses' poison). Despite the effort of the inhabitants, the knights made it to Caer-gai and the mansion was burnt to the ground. A large farmhouse was built in its place which still stands today."

Welsh Biography Online ( http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s-VAUG-ROW-1590.html ) :

VAUGHAN, ROWLAND (c. 1590-1667), of Caer-gai , Merioneth , poet, translator, and Royalist; the eldest son of John Vaughan and his wife Ellen, daughter of Hugh Nanney of Nannau, Merioneth ; was b. about 1590. He was a descendant (see J. E. Griffith , Pedigrees, 3) of the Vaughan family of Llwydiarth in Montgomeryshire (q.v.) , and it appears that it was his grandfather, of the same name as himself, who was the first of the family to live at Caer-gai (B.M. Harl. MS. 1973). He spent some time at Oxford, although there is no record that he graduated there. He m. Jane, daughter of Edward Price, Tref Prysg, Llanuwchllyn, and according to Hugh Cadwaladr 's elegy (N.L.W. MS. 9), he was survived by three sons and three daughters: JOHN, who matriculated from Hart Hall (now Hertford College), Oxford, in 1635, aged 18, m. Catherine, daughter of William Wynne of Glyn, Merioneth , and became sheriff of Merioneth in 1669-70; EDWARD, who matriculated from All Souls College, Oxford, in 1634, aged 16, graduated B.A. there in 1637/8, and M.A. from Jesus College in 1640, and became vicar of Upchurch, Kent (1642), and Llanynys, Denbs. (1647), and rector of Llangar (1662), Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog (1662), and Mallwyd (1664); WILLIAM; ELLEN; ELSBETH; and MARGARET. Harleian MS. 1973, however, and later sources give the names of his sons as John, Edward, Arthur, and Gabriel, and in addition to the three daughters named above a fourth daughter, Mary, is included, who m. Peter Price, Cynllwyd, fourth son of Thomas Prys (q.v.), Plas Iolyn, Denbs.

In accordance with family tradition Rowland Vaughan played a prominent part in the public life of the county and, like his father, who was sheriff of Merioneth in 1613/4 and 1620/1, he was appointed sheriff in 1642/3. He was a staunch Royalist and it is said that he fought as a captain at the battle of Naseby. Englynion by William Phylip show that he certainly took some active part in the Civil War (Pen. MS. 115) and Caer-gai was burnt down by Cromwell's soldiers on their way from Montgomeryshire in 1645. Vaughan himself was imprisoned at Chester by the Cromwellians in 1650 and his estate given to a kinsman, but after the end of the Civil War and after some years of litigation he recovered his estate and rebuilt Caer-gai.

Many of his englynion and other poems contain references to his political beliefs and to his sufferings at the hand of the Cromwellian party and many of them relate to the topics of the day. He also wrote a number of carols and other poems of a religious nature and translated several hymns from English and Latin into Welsh. The Welsh versions of the hymns in the Book of Common Prayer are generally attributed to him (see Thickens , Emynau a'u Hawduriaid and Llyfr Gweddi Gyffredin, 1664). He also wrote several elegies on the death of eminent Merioneth men. Some of his poems were published in Carolau a Dyriau Duwiol, 1729, Blodeu-Gerdd Cymru, 1759, and other anthologies, and many of them are to be found in contemporary manuscripts, some of them being in his autograph (for an example of his autograph, see illustration between 142 and 143 in N.L.W. Jnl., i).

Rowland Vaughan is better remembered, however, as a translator of religious works, in particular of works supporting the Established Church. The first and most important of these to be published was Yr Ymarfer o Dduwioldeb, a translation which appeared in 1630 of Lewis Bayly (q.v.) , The Practice of Piety. Several later editions of this translation appeared within the following century. This first translation was followed in 1658 by Yr Arfer o Weddi yr Arglwydd (John Despagne), Pregeth yn erbyn Schism (Jasper Mayne), Prifannau Sanctaidd, together with Ymddiffyniad Rhag Pla o Schism (William Brough), and Prifannau Crefydd Gristnogawl, together with Y Llwybraidd-Fodd Byrr (James Ussher). His last published translated work, Evchologia (John Prideaux), appeared in 1660. The translations show not only the meticulous care with which he worked but also his masterly command of an extensive vocabulary and a fluid style of writing. His introductions and dedicatory letters to these works contain numerous allusions to contemporary historical events as well as his own fortunes and family.

Vaughan also translated one other important work, although his translation was never published. Among the Brogyntyn manuscripts deposited in the National Library of Wales some years ago by lord Harlech was found a hitherto unknown portion of Vaughan's translation of Eikon Basilike or The King's Book, together with his dedication addressed to lord Harlech 's ancestor, colonel Sir John Owen (q.v.) ; for this, see N.L.W. Jnl., i, 141-4.

Rowland Vaughan d. 18 Sept. 1667 and the Caer-gai estate passed to his eldest son, John, whose great-granddaughter, Mary Elizabeth (b. 1709), wife of the Rev. Henry Mainwaring, rector of Etwall, sold it, together with Tref Prysg, to Sir Watkin Williams Wynn , about 1740.

The above article on Rowland Vaughan deals with the most notable member of this family and refers to some of his forbears and descendants. The object of the present note is to draw attention to some literary and historical references to the family, and particularly to Rowland Vaughan, in the poems of 'Phylipiaid Ardudwy' (qq.v.) . Rhisiart Phylip , who was 'family bard' at Nannau , near Dolgelley, for a period, wrote an elegy on the death of Annes, daughter of Rhys Fychan, Nannau - she was the wife of Hugh Nanney and grandmother of Rowland Vaughan, who also wrote englynion to her and to his grandfather on the occasion. When Ellen Nanney, Rowland Vaughan's mother, d. in 1617, Rhisiart Phylip wrote an elegy in her memory. Amongst englynion by Rhisiart Phylip is one written in 'reply' to one by Rowland Vaughan; he also wrote two englynion when the news came that Vaughan had received judgement in his favour in respect of Caer-gai in 1637. There are also three englynion by Rhisiart Phylip in 'reply' to three by Vaughan in regard to a poem by the former respecting Rhiwedog, near Bala . Rhisiart Phylip composed two cywyddau gofyn ('request poems') of Caer-gai interest: one to Rowland Vaughan, requesting an exchange of greyhounds, whilst in the other the bard asks John Vaughan to give a greyhound to Lewis Gwyn, Dolau-gwyn , near Towyn. Six englynion praising the translator, and written by Gruffydd Phylip , nephew of Rhisiart Phylip , are printed at the beginning of Yr Ymarfer o Dduwioldeb, 1630, Rowland Vaughan's translation of Lewis Bayly 's well-known work, The Practice of Piety. In the article on 'Phylipiaid Ardudwy' in Cymm., xlii, is quoted the account given by Walter Davies (Gwallter Mechain, q.v.) in the introduction to Eos Ceiriog (1823) of the friendship in the time of the Civil War between Rowland Vaughan and William Phylip , who lived at Hendre Fechan, Ardudwy. When Griffith Vaughan, brother of Rowland Vaughan, d. 1638, William Phylip wrote two elegies upon the occasion. Besides others which he wrote are two referring to the burning of Caer-gai and Ynysmaengwyn in 1645. Later, John Vaughan, the heir of Caer-gai (the son of Rowland Vaughan), wrote a 'cywydd yr adar,' to which William Phylip replied (in Cardiff MS. 64).

"Thomas de Hornby was the chief tenant [of Hornby Castle, North Riding, Yorkshire] in 1316 (fn. 21) and Robert de Hornby in 1327. (fn. 22) Four years later mills and tenements in Hornby were settled on Robert and his wife Christina and their issue, with contingent remainder to Thomas St. Quintin and his heirs. (fn. 23) In 1332 Christina, widow of Robert, and Thomas St. Quintin were holding jointly. (fn. 24) At her death the manor came into the sole possession of the family of St. Quintin, a younger branch of the St. Quintins of Harpham. (fn. 25)

Thomas was succeeded by his nephew William, who had a son and heir John. (fn. 26) Anthony son of John died at the end of the 14th century, and left a daughter and heir Margaret, whose wardship and marriage belonged to Richard Lord Scrope. (fn. 27) He married Margaret St. Quintin to John Conyers, 'a servant of his own,' (fn. 28) who became the ancestor of the Conyers of Hornby.

He was succeeded by a son and heir Christopher, who purchased more lands in Hornby.

John Conyers, 3rd Baron Conyers (born before 1538-13 June 1557 ) was a British aristocrat, and the son of Christopher Conyers, 2nd Baron Conyers .

Personal life
Conyers married Lady Maud Clifford, daughter of the Earl of Cumberland and had one child - Elizabeth Conyers; later The Hon. Elizabeth Conyers.

Titles
Conyers inherited the title of Baron Conyers upon his father's death in 1538. His wife thus became Lady Conyers and his daughter The Hon. Elizabeth Conyers.[1]. However, since Lord Conyers did not produce a male heir, the title Baron Conyers fell into abeyance upon his death in 1557. It was brought out of abeyance by his grandson, Conyers Darcy , some time between 1641 and 1644.
This grandson is the son of his daughter, Elizabeth , and her husband, Thomas Darcy.

It is situated within a short distance of the S. coast. The village, which is small, is wholly agricultural. The principal residences are Bodowen, an ancient seat of the Owens, and Bodorgan, the seat of F. O. Meyrick, Esq., which at one period was celebrated for possessing the finest gardens in Wales. The living is a rectory* in the diocese of Bangor, value £245, in the patronage of the lord chancellor. The church, dedicated to St. Cadwaladr, stands on the site of one built in the 7th century, and was formerly a sanctuary. Over the S. doorway is a very ancient inscribed stone, which has been thus deciphered: "Catamanus Rex sapientissimus opinatissimus omnium regum;" and in the church is a punning monument to Owen Wood. Adjoining the church are the Owen and Meyrick chapels, with an E. window of stained glass. A full account of this window, which has been restored by Wilmeshurst, is given by Browne Willis, in his History of Bangor Cathedral. The parochial charities produce about £16 per annum.

In the same manner Humphrey is often written Humffrey, etc. Note that Rowland Ellis in his pedigree of 1697, calls Catherine daughter of "Sion ap Rhydderch," i.e., John ap Rhydderch, which, however, is clearly a clerical error, as Sion ap Rhydderch was her brother."

The Sir William whose monument we are now viewing was married twice, had nineteen children, and died in 1587. His first wife was Jane, the daughter of Sir Thomas Stradling of St Donats Castle in Glamorganshire; the second was Jane, the daughter of John Puleston, Esqr., Chamberlain of North Wales. By his numerous children the family became connected with the Stanleys of Hooton, the Bulkeley family, with the Phillips of Picton Castle, with the Mostyns, with the Myttons and the Thelwalls, besides numerous other families."

From Welsh Biography Online (http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s1-GRIF-PEN-1300.html) :

"His son, WILLIAM GRIFFITH (c. 1480-1531), does not appear in office until 1508 when he was described as 'King's Servant' and 'squire for the body,' and appointed chamberlain of North Wales; he continued to hold the office until his death, with the exception of a short break in 1509 when he made way for Charles Brandon, later duke of Suffolk. (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1494-1509, 569; Davies, Conway and Menai Ferries, 57; L. and P. Henry VIII, vol. I, part i, 257, 78, and vol. IV, part i, 1941; D.N.B., vi, 218.) There is some evidence of personal links between the two men. Both were squires of the body at the same time, and in 1516 Brandon appointed Griffith as one of his deputy justices of North Wales, describing him in the instrument of appointment as his 'blood relation.' (Penrhyn MSS. 48.) Griffith served under Brandon in the French campaign of 1513; he was at the siege of Thérouanne, the battle of the Spurs, and the siege of Tournai in Aug. 1513, and was knighted at Tournai 25 Sept. 1513. (L. and P. Henry VIII, vol. I, part i, 1176, 1496, part ii, 2301, 2480, 2575.) Poems by Lewis Môn , Huw Llwyd ap Dafydd , Tudur Aled , and Gruffydd ap Tudur ap Hywel (qq.v.) refer to his part in the campaign. (Mostyn MSS. 148, 233, 520, 523, 537, 585; Cardiff MSS. 2, 103; Gwaith Tudur Aled, ed. T. Gwynn Jones , i, 146.) He appears also to have maintained close relationships with Sir Rhys ap Thomas of Dynevor (q.v.) . His first wife was Jane, daughter of Sir Thomas Stradling of S. Donats, Glam. , and his wife, Joan, daughter of Thomas Mathew of Radyr, Glam. Sir Thomas Stradling d., 1480, and his widow m. shortly after Sir Rhys ap Thomas , as his second wife. Poems to William Griffith by Lewis Môn emphasize the links between him and Sir Rhys , whose son, Griffith ap Rhys (b. c. 1480 - see under Rice ) was a contemporary of William Griffith at Court. A Griffith of Penrhyn (almost certainly William Griffith) was present at the tournament held by Sir Rhys at Carew in 1507 (see articles Stradling and Mathew ; Mostyn MSS. 148, 470, 581; Cambrian Register, 1795, 49-144). His second wife was Jane, daughter of John Puleston 'Hen' (the Old) of Bersham (see article Puleston family ); William, his eldest son by this marriage, founded the family of Griffith of Trefarthen (Griffith , Pedigrees, 125, 185, and article Griffith, John, 16th cent. ). Apart from those named, the following poets (qq.v.) wrote to him: Mathew Brwmffild , Dafydd Pennant , Ifan Dylyniwr , Dafydd Trefor , Ifan ap Madog , Lewis Daron , and Tudur Aled . (Mostyn MSS. 148, 529, 532, 556, 559, 562, 566, 569, 572, 575; Cynfeirdd Lleyn, ed. Myrddin Fardd , 195; Gwaith Tudur Aled, ed. T. Gwynn Jones , i, 145.) He was one of three squires who were concerned with the Caerwys eisteddfod in 1523. (Llên Cymru, ii, 130.)"

Noted events in his life were:

• Knighted: 25 Dec 1513, Touraine, France.

• Made: Chamberlain of North Wales, 1520.

From: http://www.rootsweb.com/~wlsccaer/hall.html

"...I return to what is undoubtedly the glory of the church, the alabaster monument of Sir William Griffith and his lady. The tomb upon which the figures are recumbent as large as life is raised about three feet above the two steps, or rather plinths, upon which it stands. They lie on a mat of very good execution, one end of which is rolled up in several convolutions to serve as pillows for the lady and the knight. The same is done, with some variety of shape, at the latter's feet, which rest upon it, while those of the former repose against a lion couchant. At the west end of the tomb three compartments are distinguished, divided by pilasters, and have a sort of architrave about. Five groups of figures facing each other and in the attitude of prayer are seen with much blazonry, among which, as might be expected in the Griffith family, are the Saxons' heads and the heads of stags caboshed. A cross, a crescent and a spear's head were, however, new to me in their combinations with the other bearings. I venture to suppose them the arms of Sir William's first wife, a South Walian. On the north of the tomb are three groups of females praying, all facing towards the east, and these are again separated from each other by the three lions passant and the three eagles in fess, each being twice and in alternate order exhibited upon the pilasters. On the south side we have three compartments separated by four coats on as many pilasters. The 1st compartment shows a warrior armed and one in the weeds of peace, the second a warrior and a lady, the 3d a priest and, I think, two females. All these figures, which are in tolerable preservation and execution, are in prayer and looking towards the east. the arms are' in the following order: 1, Saxons' heads; 2, stags' heads caboshed; 3, three mullets; and 4, stags' heads caboshed with a chevron between. the knight is fully armed, except that he is bare headed and has his hand clasped upon his breast; but these have been broken off. Upon the whole, however, we may feel obliged to the barbarism of the country (some few degrees less, it must be confessed, than that of the English) for having left us so much of this most precious remain without doubt (at least in my opinion) within the country.

"This Sir William Griffith was, I think, the third in succession in the office of Chamberlain of North Wales from the appointment to it of his grandfather, Sir William Griffith, a gentleman whose name has become famous in the history of the country for his contentions with John ap Meredydd of Istumcegid, chief of the descendants of Owen Gwynedd.

25376. John ab Howel Vychan of Llwydiarth, son of Howel Vychan ab Gruffydd ab Jenkin.

Research Notes: From The History of the Princes, the Lords Marcher, and the Ancient Nobility of Powys Fadog, Vol. 6, by J. Y. W. Lloyd, London, 1887, pp. 113:

"John ab Howel Vychan of Llwydiarth ab Howel ab Gruffydd ab Jenkin ab Llewelyn ab Einion ab Celynin, who killed the Mayor of Caermarthen. Celynin bore sable, a he-goat argent, armed, bearded, and unguled or; and became possessed of Llwydiarth by his marriage with Gwladys, daughter and heiress of Rhirid ab Cynwrig Evell (ag a gavas Llwydiarth Ymhowys). Her mother was Arddun, daughter of Itel Goch, son of Meredydd ab Bleddyn, Prince of Powys. Celynin was the son of Rhirid ab Cynddelw ab Iorwerth ab Gwrgeneu ab Uchtryd ab Aleth, King of Dyved. Azure, three cocks argent, created, wattled, and armed or."

The above is from Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277. The author continues with the following lengthy footnote:

"But it must be remarked that this is not accordant with the Llwydiarth pedigree as given in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294. There 'Gwellian, the daughter of Meredith ap Rhydderch ap Tewdwr Mawr' (? Mawr) is stated to be the wife of Celynin, and 'Gwladys, daughter of Richard, Lord of Dinas Certhin', to be his mother. It is said, however, that in the Salisbury MSS. at Wynnstay, that Gwladys, the daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell, is stated to be the mother of Celynin, and not the wife, as mentioned in Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277. This would account for the acquisition by Celynin, either by heirship or marriage, of Llwydiarth, assuming that it was part of the territory of Cynwrig Evell.

Celynin was living in the time of Edward II or Edward III (130740), and an experienced genealogist throws a doubt as to the possibility of Celynin, or his father, being contemporaneous with a grand-daughter of Cynwrig Evell.

"We cannot venture to pronounce which of these discordant statements is correct, or how they are to be reconciled; but looking at the main circumstances of the case, we should certainly infer that Llwydiarth was acquired by Celynin, by marriage, rather than descent."

Research Notes: From Wikipedia - William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (1423-1469) :

William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (c. 1423-1469), known as "Black William", was the grandson of Dafydd Gam , an adherent of King Henry V of England .

Herbert supported the Yorkist faction during the Wars of the Roses , as had his father, William ap Thomas . Herbert was rewarded by King Edward IV with the title Lord Herbert of Raglan in 1461, having assumed an English-style surname in place of the Welsh patronymic . In 1468 he was promoted to Earl of Pembroke . He obtained custody of the young Henry, Earl of Richmond , whom he planned to marry to his own daughter. However, he soon fell out with his great rival, Warwick "the Kingmaker" , who turned against the king. Herbert was executed by the Lancastrians , now led by Warwick, after the Battle of Edgecote Moor , near Banbury.

Herbert was succeeded by his legitimate son, William, but the earldom was surrendered in 1479. It was later revived for a grandson, another William Herbert , the son of Black William's illegitimate son, Sir Richard Herbert of Ewyas .

From Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry, p. 57-58:

"VII. LADY JANE TROUTBECK, daughter of Sir William Troutbeck, married Sir William Griffith, Knight, of Penrhyn, in the county of Caernarvon, as appear of record in the Visitations of Lewis Dwnn, II, 154-5, Harl. MSS. No. 1424, fo. 135b., also MS. of the celebrated antiquary, Robert Vaughan, of Hengwrt, Known as the Hengwrt MS. 96, p. 603 (vide Montgomeryshire Collections, by the Powysland Club), vol XXV., page 98. The translation of this MS. is as follows:

'Wm. Vaughan (Vychan) Chamberlain of No. Wales (son of Gwilym ab Gruffydd ab Gwilym ab Gruffydd ab Heilen, by his 2d wife Sioned (Jonet) D. of Sir W. Stanley of Hooton, Chamberlain of No. Wales and Chester), and had all the land of his father, and the lands also of Paris, (from whom Paris Mountain), by his mother's influence, and in the 18th year of Henry VI. (1440) he got himself made a denizen of England, under covenant that he should not marry any Welsh woman, so he married Alice, dau. and heir of Sir Richard Dalton, kt., by a daughter of Lord Clifford, his wife. Their son, Sir william Griffith, Hael (the Liberal), m. Jane, dau. of Sir Wm. Troutbeck, Kt., by his wife, a sister to Sir Thomas Stanley.'

"Sir William Griffith must, therefore, have been born subsequent to the year 1440, and succeeded his father as Chamberlain of North Wales, some time after 10th of August , 1466, for his said father was alive upon the last mentioned day.

"He was created a Knight of the Bath 1489. The record therefore being as follows:

'These XXI. followinge were made Knightes of the Bathe at the Creation of Prince Arthur and of his Bayne on St. Andrew's Eve in anno quinto of the king'

"Sir William Griffith was living 12 Henry VIII., 1520, and was then Chamberlain of North Wales. He survived, however, for many years, or until about 1539-40; he is mentioned in the Welsh records as Captain or Constable of Caernarvon Castle, and he is remembered by antiquarians on account of the pains he took to collect and preserve the official archives and records and manuscripts relating to Wales. There are some fine verses extant addressed to him by the leading Bards of his day.

"The Griffiths of Penrhyn were the owners of immense estates in Caernarvonshire, and had their seat at Penrhyn Castle, which then was, and continues to be, one of the finest seates in the Principality. At the time of Henry VII., and Henry VIII., they reached a height of splendor and power second only, perhaps, in Wales, to the family of Sir Rhys ap Thomas, of Dynevor.

"Their entertainments at Penrhyn were magnificent, especially at those times when the King tarried there; their retainers, a small army, and their tenants, bound by feudal tenure, placed an armed force at their command, at all times ready for instant service in the field. He had Issue:

"VIII. SIR WILLIAM GRIFFITH..."

From Welsh Biography Online (http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s1-GRIF-PEN-1300.html):

"His son and heir by the first marriage, WILLIAM GRIFFITH (c. 1445-1505/6), is not always easy to distinguish from his father. He m. (1) Joan Troutbeck, widow of Sir William Butler of Bewsey, Ches.; her mother was Margaret, daughter of Sir Thomas Stanley (c. 1406-1459), first baron Stanley; William Griffith was therefore nephew by marriage to Thomas, first earl of Derby (1435-1504) - another confirmation of the Stanley connection (Dwnn, Visitations, ii, 167; Penrhyn MSS. 12; D.N.B., liv., 76; Ormerod, Cheshire, ii, 42). In 1476 he is described as 'king's servant' and 'marshall of the King's Hall' (an office held by his father) in a grant to him by Edward IV of an annuity of £18 5s.; the annuity was renewed by Richard III in March 1484 (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1476-85, 18, 418). At Michaelmas 1483 he was appointed chamberlain of North Wales by Richard III; the appointment was confirmed by Henry VII within a month of Bosworth (Davies, Conway and Menai Ferries, 48; Owen , Manuscripts rel. to Wales in the Brit. Mus., ii, 147; Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1485-94, 5). His record suggests that he followed very closely the lead of his kinsman, the time-serving earl of Derby, and a poem by Lewis Môn (q.v.) proves that immediately before Bosworth he shared with lord Strange, Derby's heir, his perilous imprisonment at Nottingham as hostage for his father's all-too-uncertain loyalty; presumably, he shared, too, the same narrow escape from death on the eve of the battle. Tudur Aled (q.v.) also refers, more obscurely, to this crisis in William Griffith's career. (Gairdner, Richard III, ed. 1898, 227-38; Mostyn MSS. 148, 467; Gwaith Tudur Aled, ed. T. Gwynn Jones , i, 143.) His influential connections were not confined to the Stanleys.

"He appears to have m., as his second wife, Elizabeth Grey, grand-daughter of Reginald, 3rd baron Grey of Ruthin (the enemy of Owain Glyndwr ) and first cousin to John Grey, lord Ferrers of Groby (1432-1461) who was the first husband of Elizabeth Woodville, later queen of Edward IV. (D.N.B., xxiii, 193, 197; Williams , Observations on the Snowdon Mountains, 1802, 174.) The marriage must have brought him into personal contact with the powerful Greys and Woodvilles and it would explain the presence of a William Griffith as member of Edward IV's council on 8 Aug. 1482. (Gairdner, op. cit., 338-9.)

"Under Henry VII he continued to hold the chamberlainship of North Wales until 1490 when he was replaced by Sir Richard Pole (Davies, Conway and Menai Ferries, 48, 68.) He was knighted when Arthur was created prince of Wales in 1489 and he continued to serve on a number of North Wales commissions. (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1485-94, 86, 354.) He d. 1505/6. (Penrhyn MSS. 44-5.) Among poets (qq.v.) who sang to him are Tudur Penllyn , Dafydd Pennant , Dafydd Llwyd ap Llywelyn , Lewis Môn , and Tudur Aled . (Mostyn MSS. 148, 467, 504, 532, 535; Gwaith Tudur Aled, ed. T. Gwynn Jones , i, 142.)"

Marriage Notes: Second wife of Sir William Griffith (1445-1539)

Research Notes: From Welsh Biography Online (http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s1-GRIF-PEN-1300.html) :

"[Sir William Griffith] appears to have m., as his second wife, Elizabeth Grey, grand-daughter of Reginald, 3rd baron Grey of Ruthin (the enemy of Owain Glyndwr ) and first cousin to John Grey, lord Ferrers of Groby (1432-1461) who was the first husband of Elizabeth Woodville, later queen of Edward IV. (D.N.B., xxiii, 193, 197; Williams , Observations on the Snowdon Mountains, 1802, 174.) The marriage must have brought him into personal contact with the powerful Greys and Woodvilles and it would explain the presence of a William Griffith as member of Edward IV's council on 8 Aug. 1482. (Gairdner, op. cit., 338-9.)"

Birth Notes: Sources differ in approximate birthdate. Some have abt 1449, others abt 1462, etc. This source: http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=youngwolf&id=I778 has abt 1462. If his father died about 1461, however, a birth date of 1462 seems questionable.

Death Notes: Per Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry d. abt 1544. Another source says aft. 1519. The earlier year (1519) may have been his father.

Research Notes: From The Dictionary of Welsh Biography Online - http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s-PULE-EST-1283.html :

Before the middle of the 15th cent. a branch of the family had settled at Berse, near Wrexham, and by the end of that century Hafod-y-wern, in the same area, had come into possession of the Pulestons through the marriage of JOHN PULESTON of Plas-y-mers, a grandson of the Robert and Lowry, previously mentioned, and Alswn, daughter and heiress of Hywel ap Ieuan ap Gruffydd of Hafod-y-wern.

JOHN PULESTON ('HEN'), of Hafod-y-wern, the eldest son of this John Puleston, fought at Bosworth, and for his services on that occasion received a grant for life from Henry VII of an annuity of twenty marks out of the tithes of the lordship of Denbigh (6th Report Royal Commission on Historical MSS., 421), and was appointed a gentleman usher of the king's chamber. In 1502 he was made deputy-lieutenant to the chief steward of Bromfield and Yale (ibid.), and seven years later, in 1509, Henry VIII granted him the receivership of the town of Ruthin and the lordship of Dyffryn Clwyd (Cal. L. & P. Henry VIII, i, 1, 67), and in 1519 that of the lordship of Denbigh and Denbighland (ibid., iii, 1, 146). Like his kinsman, Sir Roger Puleston, he served in the French campaign of 1513, as also did his two sons, both named John, the one by his first, and the other by his second marriage.

JOHN PULESTON, of Hafod-y-wern ('John Puleston of Tir Môn,' as he is sometimes described), son of John Puleston ('Hen') by his second wife, Alice, daughter of Hugh Lewis of Presaddfed, was sheriff of Denbighshire, 1543-4. During the latter years of Elizabeth I, two of these Pulestons were presented for recusancy at the Denbighshire Great Sessions: EDWARD PULESTON, of Hafod-y-wern, in 1585, 1588, and 1592, and Anne, wife of JOHN PULESTON, of Berse, in 1587. The last of the Hafod-y-wern family was Frances, daughter of PHILIP PULESTON (d. 1776); she m., in 1786, Bryan Cooke, of Ouston, Yorks (see Davies-Cooke, Gwysaney ).

"It is true that in the Puleston pedigree at Gwysaney, compiled in 1665, John Puleston, the grandson of Madoc Puleston, is described as of Hafod y wern, but I have almost invariably found this John Puleston's son (also called John Puleston), described as of Tir Môn, and his grandson, Piers Puleston, as of Burras. There is no doubt, however, that Piers Puleston's son and successor, John Puleston, not merely owned Hafod y wern, but lived there. And as to John Puleston Tir Môn himself, he is described in the marriage settlement, dated October 31st, 1541/2, of his daughter Jane, as 'John Puleston, the elder, esquire, of Wrexham.'..."

"[The death of William Griffith in 1540] precipitated a long dispute between RHYS GRIFFITH his younger brother, who claimed the estates as heir male, and John Puleston, Edward Griffith's father-in-law, acting for his daughter and her three children (Jane, Catherine, and Ellen). Puleston asked Cromwell for the wardship of the children, and offered him £40 for his good offices; Rhys Griffith complained that during his absence in Ireland 'on the king's service,' his sister-in-law and her father had ransacked Penrhyn, leaving 'nothing but the bare walls.' The lord chancellor and the master of the court of wards made an arbitration in 1542, but the problems involved were still unsettled in 1559. Even after the death of Rhys Griffith in 1580, Sir Edward Bagnall, who had m. one of Edward Griffith's daughters, was still pursuing his wife's claims in the court of wards.

98592. Sir William ap Thomas of Ragland Castle, Monmouthshire 325 326 died in 1445.

Research Notes: Second husband of Gwladys verch Davy Gam.

From Wikipedia - William ap Thomas :
William ap Thomas (died 1445) was a member of a minor Welsh gentry family and was responsible for beginning the construction of Raglan Castle one of the finest late medieval Welsh castles .

Marriage
He obtained Raglan through his marriage to Elizabeth Bloet , widow of Sir James Berkeley shortly after 1406. When Elizabeth died in 1420, ap Thomas retained Raglan as a tenant of his stepson James Berkeley, 1st Baron Berkeley , and in 1425 Lord Berkeley agreed that he could continue to hold Raglan for the duration of his life.

2nd Marriage
William married for a second time, and chose another heiress, Gwladus , described by a Welsh poet as 'The Star of Abergavenny' for her beauty. She was the daughter of Sir Dafydd Gam and the widow of Sir Roger Vaughan . Both these men had been part of the Welsh contingent that fought with King Henry V of England in France, and both were at the battle of Agincourt , where William ap Thomas had also fought.

The Blue Knight of Gwent
In 1426, ap Thomas was knighted by King Henry VI , becoming known to his compatriots as "Y marchog glas o Went" (the blue knight of Gwent). Gradually he began to establish himself as a person of consequence in south Wales .

Important Offices In Wales
As early as 1421 William held the important position of Steward of the Lordship of Abergavenny , and later became Chief Steward of the Duke of York's estates in Wales, 1442-1443. Other positions held by Sir William included that of Sheriff of Cardiganshire and Carmarthenshire , to which he was appointed in 1435, and his position as Sheriff of Glamorgan followed in 1440. Although he became one of the followers of Richard, Duke of York , and a member of the Duke's military council, Sir William's sphere of influence was largely confined to south Wales.

Raglan Castle
By 1432 William was in a position to purchase the manor of Raglan from the Berkeleys for about L667 and it was probably from this time that he began to build the castle as we know it. His building programme eventually swept away most of the original structures. The principal buildings surviving from this time are the Great Tower (left) a self-contained fortress in its own right, together with the south gate, both equipped with gunloops. He also raised the hall, though later largely rebuilt, and part of the service range beyond. Two sources indicate that William ap Thomas was the builder of the keep. One of which is a contemporary poem praising ap Thomas, mentioning the tower at Raglan Castle which "stands above all other buildings." There is also a reference to Sir William Thomas' tower from a family chronicle written by Sir Thomas Herbert of Tintern .

Death & Burial
William ap Thomas died in London in 1445, and his body was brought back to Wales to be buried in the Benedictine Priory Church of St Mary, Abergavenny [1] . His wife Gwladus, died in 1454 and her tomb and effigy can also be seen in Abergavenny in the Priory Church of St Mary. William was succeeded by his eldest son, William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (1423-1469) who took the surname Herbert.

William married Gwladys verch Dafydd Gam.327 Other names for Gwladys were Gwladys "the Star of Abergavenny" verch Dafydd Gam and Gwladys verch Davy Gam.

Children from this marriage were:

49296        i.  Sir William Herbert First Earl of Pembroke (born about 1423 - died on 27 Jul 1469 in Northampton, Northamptonshire, England)

Other names for Meurig were Meirig ap Llywelyn of Bodorgan and Meyrick Ap Llywelyn of Bodorgan.

Research Notes: Archives Network Wales - Bodorgan Manuscripts (University of Wales Bangor GB0222 BOD):

"The Meyricks are descended from Cadfael, lord of Cedewain in Powys, but it was in the Tudor period that they first came into prominence. Llywelyn ap Heilyn fought under Henry Tudor [1457-1509; later King Henry VII] at the battle of Bosworth [22 Aug 1485]; his son Meyrick [ap Llywelyn] served under Henry VIII [1491-1547], was promoted to be captain of the bodyguard, and was given the Crown Lease of the manor of Aberffraw. In the late sixteenth century trouble erupted between Richard Meyrick II (d. 1596) and Hugh Owen of Bodeon concerning part of the Aberffraw manor lands. The Bodorgan estate was crushed by the cost of the litigation, and by 1590 a substantial portion had been sold to discharge Meyrick's debts. Richard Meyrick III (d. 1644) was the first of the family to be appointed sheriff of Anglesey. It was Owen Meyrick (1682-1760) who was the real founder of the later fortunes of the family. He was the second son of William Meyrick (1644-1717), and grandson of Richard Meyrick IV (d.1669). He was a keen supervisor of his estates and set it on a strong foundation. He looked after it ceaselessly and carefully, and considerably enlarged its boundaries. In the parliamentary election of 1708 for the county of Anglesey, he very seriously and almost successfully challenged the supremacy of the Bulkeleys and, although unsuccessful on this occasion, effectively challenged the Bulkeley supremacy on the island. For some years he did represent the county in Parliament (1715-1722). He was also High Sheriff in 1706, and Custos Rotulorum of Anglesey from 1715 till his death in 1759. Interestingly, he also commissioned Lewis Morris, the most famous of the three Morris brothers, to make a survey of the Bodorgan lands. Owen Meyrick was succeeded by his son Owen Meyrick (1705-1770), who married a wealthy heiress, the daughter of John Putland of London. His grandson, Owen Putland Meyrick (1752-1825) was also equally fortunate in his marriage to Clara, daughter and heiress to Richard Garth of Morden, Surrrey. The estate acquired additional wealth through the marriage of the latter's daughter and co-heiress, Clara, to Augustus Elliot Fuller of Ashdowne House, Sussex. Their son Owen Augustus Fuller (1804-1876) adopted the name Meyrick when he inherited the Bodorgan estate on the death of his grandfather.

In the course of time three other branches of the family were established at Gwyddelwern, Merioneth, at Cefn Coch, Llanfechell, co. Anglesey and at Monkton in Pembrokeshire. The strongest of these was the last, of which the founder was Rowland Meyrick (1505-1566), second son of Meurig ap Llywelyn and brother of Richard Meyrick I.

"VII. LADY JANE TROUTBECK, daughter of Sir William Troutbeck, married Sir William Griffith, Knight, of Penrhyn, in the county of Caernarvon, as appear of record in the Visitations of Lewis Dwnn, II, 154-5, Harl. MSS. No. 1424, fo. 135b., also MS. of the celebrated antiquary, Robert Vaughan, of Hengwrt, Known as the Hengwrt MS. 96, p. 603 (vide Montgomeryshire Collections, by the Powysland Club), vol XXV., page 98. The translation of this MS. is as follows:

'Wm. Vaughan (Vychan) Chamberlain of No. Wales (son of Gwilym ab Gruffydd ab Gullym ab Gruffydd ab Heilen, by his 2d wife Sioned (Jonet) D. of Sir W. Stanley of Hooton, Chamberlain of No. Wales and Chester), and had all the land of his father, and the lands also of Paris, (from whom Paris Mountain), by his mother's influence, and in the 18th year of Henry VI.

Their son, Sir william Griffith, Hael (the Liberal), m. Jane, dau. of Sir Wm. Troutbeck, Kt., by his wife, a sister to Sir Thomas Stanley.'

"Sir William Griffith must, therefore, have been born subsequent to the year 1440, and succeeded his father as Chamberlain of North Wales, some time after 10th of August , 1466, for his said father was alive upon the last mentioned day."

"Some time after 1405 he m. Joan, daughter of Sir William Stanley of Hooton, Ches., thus beginning a long and profitable connexion with the rising star of that family. His son by his first wife inherited only his mother's property at Penmynydd, and he was the ancestor of the later Theodores of that place (see Tudor family, of Penmynydd ). Gwilym ap Griffith d. in 1431, leaving his great possessions in Anglesey and Caernarvonshire to his son by the second marriage. (Penrhyn manuscripts, passim; Trans. Angl. Antiq. Soc., 1951, 34-72; J. R. Jones, 'The development of the Penrhyn estate to 1431', University of Wales M.A. thesis, unpublished.)

"From 1431 to 1531 the son, grandson, and great-grandson of Gwilym ap Griffith (each named Gwilym) held the estate and added to it. (During the 15th cent. the surname 'Griffith' became established and 'Gwilym' became 'William' in non-Welsh records.) All three showed outstanding skill in steering a safe and profitable course through the dangerous waters of 15th cent. politics; in particular, they allied themselves with prominent English houses, especially the pliant Stanleys - a process which began with the marriage of Gwilym ap Griffith to Joan Stanley of Hooton. The son of that marriage, GWILYM FYCHAN (c. 1420-1483), was under the tutelage of his Stanley kinsmen until he came of age (Penrhyn MSS. 17-18). In 1440 he received letters of denization, freeing him from the operation of the penal laws passed against Welshmen during the Glynd revolt, on condition that he did not marry a Welsh-woman or hold office; the ban on holding office was raised in 1443 on the ground that his mother was a Stanley (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1436-41 (416), 1441-6 (164). He m., before 1447, Ales, daughter and heiress of Sir Richard Dalton of Apthorp, Northants.; the marriage almost certainly reflects the Stanley connection, for Ales Dalton was grand-daughter by her second marriage of Isabel de Pilkington whose daughter by Thomas de Lathom, her first husband, brought Lathom and Knowsley to the Stanleys. (Dwnn, Visitations, ii, 155; Penrhyn MSS. 1-4, 7-9, 13; G.E.C., Complete Peerage, iv, 205 n. c.; D.N.B., liv., 75.) He m.

See Griffith , Pedigrees, 47, 56, 57, and articles Griffith of Carreg-lwyd and Griffith, George, 1601-1666 . In 1451 he was member of a commission appointed to examine the reasons why the revenues of Merioneth were in arrear (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1446-52, 480) and between 1457 and 1463 he was deputy to various chamberlains of North Wales (Davies, Conway and Menai Ferries, 47; P.R.O. Min. Acc., 1154/3, 1180/3). He does not appear to have held the office of chamberlain. He was probably the William Griffith who, as 'marshall of the King's Hall,' received grants from Edward IV in 1462 and 1464, and he served on a number of North Wales commissions during Edward's reign (Cal. Pat. Rolls, 1461-7 (117, 293, 329), 1467-77 (54, 490), 1476-85 (121)). He was d. by 13 Sept. 1483 (Penrhyn MSS. 38-9).

From Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry, pp. 53-56:

"VI. LADY MARGARET STANLEY, eldest daughter of Thomas, Lord Stanley, married Sir William Troutbeck, of Pryns Castle in Worrill, Cheshire, Lord of Dunham. Sir William Troutbeck, Knight, was son and heir of Sir John Troutbeck, Knight, of Dunham, Chamberlain of Chester, and was aged 23 years in 37 Henry VI. (1458), and was therefore born 1434-5. The following Inq. P. M. is proof of his birth and age:

'Inq. P. M. (37, not) 38, H. VI. John Troutbek held (no lands of the King or Prince on his decease) in demesne, as of fee (but by his charter of 22 Feby., 35 Hen.

Ob. die Sabbi px post festum Sci Bartholomei Apli ultimo, Wills Troutbeck filius & heres, aet. 23, ann. in festo Sce Margarete Virginis ultimo).'

Sir William Troutbeck was married in the year 1449, when aged only about fourteen years, to the Lady Margaret Stanley, and was slain at the battle of Blore-Heath on the 23d September, 1459, fighting under the command of Lord Auderley, in the Lancasterian cause. He was buried in the Troutbeck Chapel in St. Mary's, Chester. A tomb was erected there to his memory, and is thus described: 'It was a faire tombe of one of the Troutbecks. The man all in riche armour, with a riche border of pearles, and stones, about his head, on the helmet. On the front of the helmet, over his forehead, was graven Jeshu Nazarenus Rex. All the plates and edges of his armour curiously wrought, as it were imbracery, with a collar of S.S. about his neck, of gold, one gauntlet in his hand, and his wife's hand in the other. Under his feet a lion couchant; under his head, a helmet mantled, having on it a wreath of trouts and a moores head. She hath her head richly attired, with a veil over her head, with a blue gown, and a short surcoat of black. At her feet a lamb, and two angels supporting the cushions under her head.'

"The Troutbeck Aisle or Chapel, which was built in the reign of Henry VI., by William Troutbeck, fell down not many years after the pulication of the 'Vale Royal,' by King, and destroyed the tombs. The third Randal Holmes says, that for the fineness of the work, the monuments of the Troutbecks were thought to exceed anything of that kind in England. (Harl. MS. 2151, fo. 16b.)

"The battle of Blore-Heath was fought on St. Tecla's Day, 23 September, 1459, was fatal to the men of Cheshire. Among those left dead upon the field were Sir Thomas Button, Sir John Done, Sir Hugh Venables, Sir Richard Monineux, Sir William Troutbeck, Sir John Leigh, and Sir John Egerton. (Records Corporation of Macclesfield.)

"The following is proof of the death of the said William Troutbeck, and as it gives the age of his eldest son, fixes the date of his marriage:

'Inq. M. (b. de mand.) 4 Edw. Iv. Sir William Troutbek, knight, held the manors of Great Troughford, Dunham, and Hole from Henry, late King of France, "et non de jure Rege Angliae sexto,' with lands therein, valued at XL marks per annum.

"(2) Before the middle of the 15th cent. a branch of the family had settled at Berse, near Wrexham, and by the end of that century Hafod-y-wern, in the same area, had come into possession of the Pulestons through the marriage of JOHN PULESTON of Plas-ym-mers, a grandson of the Robert and Lowry, previously mentioned, and Alswn, daughter and heiress of Hywel ap Ieuan ap Gruffydd of Hafod-y-wern. JOHN PULESTON ('HEN'), of Hafod-y-wern, the eldest son of this John Puleston, fought at Bosworth, and for his services on that occasion received a grant for life from Henry VII of an annuity of twenty marks out of the tithes of the lordship of Denbigh (6th Report Royal Commission on Historical MSS., 421), and was appointed a gentleman usher of the king's chamber. In 1502 he was made deputy-lieutenant to the chief steward of Bromfield and Yale (ibid.), and seven years later, in 1509, Henry VIII granted him the receivership of the town of Ruthin and the lordship of Dyffryn Clwyd (Cal. L. & P. Henry VIII, i, 1, 67), and in 1519 that of the lordship of Denbigh and Denbighland (ibid., iii, 1, 146). Like his kinsman, Sir Roger Puleston, he served in the French campaign of 1513, as also did his two sons, both named John, the one by his first, and the other by his second marriage. JOHN PULESTON, of Hafod-y-wern ('John Puleston of Tir Môn,' as he is sometimes described), son of John Puleston ('Hen') by his second wife, Alice, daughter of Hugh Lewis of Presaddfed, was sheriff of Denbighshire, 1543-4. During the latter years of Elizabeth I, two of these Pulestons were presented for recusancy at the Denbighshire Great Sessions: EDWARD PULESTON, of Hafod-y-wern, in 1585, 1588, and 1592, and Anne, wife of JOHN PULESTON, of Berse, in 1587. The last of the Hafod-y-wern family was Frances, daughter of PHILIP PULESTON (d. 1776); she m., in 1786, Bryan Cooke, of Ouston, Yorks (see Davies-Cooke, Gwysaney ). "

Caer-gai, a Roman fort near Llanuwchllyn, was traditionally known as the home of Cei , the character in the Arthurian legend known in English as Sir Kay.[3] Poets of the 15th century recorded a story, ultimately deriving from the Prose Merlin included in the Lancelot-Grail and the Post-Vulgate Cycle , that King Arthur and Cei were raised at Caer-gai as foster brothers.

197186. Dafydd Gam ap Llewelyn ap Hywel 325 354 was born about 1380 in <Breconshire>, Wales and died on 25 Oct 1415 in Azincourt, (Pas-de-Calais), France about age 35. Another name for Dafydd was Davy Gam.

Death Notes: Died in Battle of Agincourt fighting for Henry V.

Research Notes: From Wikipedia - Dafydd Gam :

Dafydd ap Llewelyn ap Hywel (c. 1380 - October 25 , 1415 ), better known as Dafydd Gam or Davy Gam, was a Welsh medieval nobleman , a prominent opponent of Owain Glyndwr , who died at the Battle of Agincourt fighting for Henry V . The name "Gam" is taken from a Welsh word for "lame/deformed" and stories that concern him give him a characteristic squint which may have led to his nickname 'gam' (from which derivation 'gammy' comes, as in 'gammy leg'). It is possible that he may have lost an eye. Regarded as a traitor, (Crooked David), by some Welshmen, he is regarded as a hero by others, his reputation has waxed and waned with his enemy Glynd and his ally King Henry V.

Biography
Dafydd Gam was a member of one of the most prominent Welsh families in Breconshire . His recent pedigree was 'Dafydd Gam ap Llywelyn ap Hywel Fychan ap Hywel ap Einion Sais', but beyond that the family claimed an ancient Welsh lineage going back to the Kings of Brycheiniog . Dafydd Gam was the grandson of Hywel Fychan, who held the manor of Parc Llettis near Llanover in Monmouthshire near Abergavenny , and fourth in descent from Einion Sais who held a castle at Pen Pont on the River Usk near Brecon and who had served at both the Battle of Crecy and the Battle of Poitiers . Their power base had developed mainly as consistently loyal supporters of the de Bohun family who were both earls of Hereford and Lords of Brecon from the thirteenth century onwards. Dafydd Gam's father, Llywelyn ap Hywel , purchased the estate of Penywaun near Brecon and Dafydd is thought to have been born there. His family was described as "a striking example of a native family that flourished under the rule of an English aristocratic family."[1] Under Llywelyn ap Hywel, the family's traditional loyalty was transferred to the new Lord of Brecon, Henry Bolingbroke , who had married Mary de Bohun in the 1380s. Some say Dafydd was previously in service to Henry's father John of Gaunt and, having killed a rival in Brecon High Street, had to leave Wales temporarily.[2] Dafydd Gam was certainly being paid the substantial annuity of 40 marks by Henry's estate in 1399, even before Bolingbroke became King, and later he and his brothers were described as King's esquires.[1] It seems likely they were prominent partisans of Henry in South East Wales as he gathered support for his overthrow of Richard II around 1399.

When the Owain Glyndwr rebellion broke out in 1400, the family's traditional loyalty to their liege lord remained unshaken and they played a leading role in opposition to the rebellion in the area. Their lands in and around Brecon became a target for Glynd attacks, and were extensively damaged as early as 1402-1403. The Scottish chronicler Walter Bower names Dafydd as a leader in the crushing defeat of Glynd men at the Battle of Pwll Melyn near Usk on 5 May 1405 .[1] After the battle, 300 of Glynd men were executed and his son, Gruffudd ab Owain Glyndwr , was captured. Gam's local knowledge might well have played a part in the Crown's victory here and in other battles like that at Grosmont around the same time, and may have won over local Welshmen to fight against Glyndwr. The family's loyalty was rewarded with the gift of some of the rebels' estates in Cardiganshire . In 1412 Dafydd Gam was captured by Glyndwr's men and estimates of the amount paid as his ransom recorded at the time, range from 200 to 700 marks, a large amount. That it was paid directly and speedily from the King's estates in Wales indicates the esteem in which Gam was held by Henry.[1] Glyndwr had made Gam swear an oath to never bear arms against him again or oppose him in any other way. On his release Gam told King Henry of Glyndwr's whereabouts and attacked Glyndwr's men. Glyndwr had Gam's Brecon estates attacked and burned in retaliation and his Brecon house was razed.

Agincourt
Given King Henry V 's leadership in the campaign against Glyndwr, Dafydd would have known the new King crowned in 1413 personally, and perhaps even fought alongside him. Records show that Dafydd Gam served with three foot archers in the Battle of Agincourt campaign. His death in the battle was a fact noted in several contemporary chronicles.[1] There is much controversy about whether Gam was knighted at the battle. His example shows that Welshmen continued to fight in the English army, even after the Glyndwr rebellion.

Stories of Gam's exploits at Battle of Agincourt in which he saved Henry V's life, and that he was knighted either posthumously or as he was dying on the field of victory at Agincourt by King Henry V as a result, are not vouched for in contemporary sources and have thus been discounted by many historians.[1][3] According to the legend the intervention occurred during the counter-charge of John I, Duke of Alençon , which certainly is historical, leading to the wounding of Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester , and Henry fighting hand-to-hand in the late stage of the battle. The King was hard pressed and the Duke of Alençon supposedly cut an ornament from Henry's crown with a sword blow. Then a group of Welsh knights in the King's bodyguard led by Dafydd Gam intervened to save Henry's life, only for some to be killed in doing so, including Dafydd himself, and his son in law Sir Roger Vaughan. One of those supposedly involved in this exploit was Sir William ap Thomas who survived the battle. Some accounts claim Dafydd slew the Duke of Alencon himself. This story was being frequently told by the Tudor period in histories of the campaign and by the descendants of those involved and was widely accepted as the truth at that time. Although both Gam and Vaughan did die in the battle. the exact circumstances of their death are unknown. Gam's reputation was still very much alive in nineteenth-century Wales. George Borrow said of him: "where he achieved that glory which will for ever bloom, dying, covered with wounds, on the field of Agincourt after saving the life of the king, to whom in the dreadest and most critical moment of the fight he stuck closer than a brother."[4] Juliet Baker, while not accepting the rest of the legend, states in her authoritative history of Agincourt that "Llewelyn was knighted on the field, only to fall in the battle." She says Dafydd's Welsh comrade, and posthumous son-in-law, Sir William ap Thomas may have been knighted at Agincourt.[5]

Descendants
Some of Dafydd's descendants, who adopted the surname 'Games' to mark their connection to him, remained one of the most powerful families in the Breconshire area till Stuart times.[6] They were noted for their support for Welsh bards. His beautiful daughter Gwladys ferch Dafydd Gam , the 'Star of Abergavenny', made two good marriages, the first to Sir Roger Vaughan , who also died at Agincourt. Her second was to Sir William ap Thomas of Raglan Castle who survived the battle. Her son became the extremely powerful William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (1423-1469) and took the surname Herbert, later to become one of the most well known names in the nobility. All these noble connections ensured Dafydd Gam's name remained a celebrated one.

Legacy
Like his opponent Glynd Gam has gained a sheen of legend and many stories about him are late oral traditions, folklore and family legends which may be unreliable. Chief amongst them is the tale that he tried to assassinate Glynd at his parliament at Machynlleth in 1404. The still standing Royal House in that town is where, according to local lore, he was imprisoned when the attempt failed. The legends differ on his fate after the attempt failed some state Owain in a generous gesture let Gam go soon after the Parliament, despite Gam's refusal to submit, a decision he was later to regret. Others claim he was imprisoned for years, but given Gam's seeming participation in the Battle of Pwll Melyn in 1405 they certainly cannot be true. The stories concering his rivalry with Glynd include satirical englyn in Welsh supposedly composed by Glyndywr himself on his rival after burning his house to the ground. These stories also contain descriptions of Gam recorded by George Borrow : "He was small of stature and deformed in person, though possessed of great strength. He was very sensitive of injury, though quite as alive to kindness; a thorough-going enemy and a thorough-going friend."[2] Whatever the truth of these tales there seems no doubt that Glynd and his men, and popular tradition, regarded Dafydd as one of the chief enemies of the rebellion. Gam is a key character in John Cowper Powys 's novel Owen Glendower.

The stories certainly testify to Dafydd Gam's position as typifying the loyal and valiant Welshman by the Tudor period. He is better known in England as "Davy Gam," by which name he is mentioned briefly in Shakespeare's Henry V (4.8.102) as the last name in the short list of the fallen read out to King Henry. He may have made an even larger contribution to the play for as the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states Dafydd: "may indeed, as has been suggested, be the model for Shakespeare's Fluellen , the archetypal Welshman."[1] This theory making Dafydd Gam one of the sources for the play has long been discussed, as early as 1812 it was said "There can be little doubt but that Shakspeare, in his burlesque character of Fluellen, intended David Gam."[7][8][5]

Fluellen: "If your Majesty is remembered of it, the Welshmen did good service in a garden where leeks did grow, wearing leeks in their Monmouth caps, which your Majesty knows, to this hour is an honourable badge of the service, and I do believe, your Majesty takes no scorn to wear the leek upon Saint Tavy's day". King Henry: "I wear it for a memorable honour; for I am Welsh, you know, good countryman".

Shakespeare captures the local Monmouthshire dialect (still readily to be heard in the town of Monmouth and the hill villages of Trellech and Catbrook ) with its glottal sounds.

Monmouthshire Traditions
According to local legend one of Gam's homes was a moated manor house [1] at Llantilio Crossenny , near Abergavenny in Monmouthshire (where just the moat remains today [2] , at Hen Gwrt near the modern-day village). There is a legend or story that persists in this part of Monmouthshire that Davy Gam, and all his children had a turn in their eye making them cross-eyed and that if they all linked hands they could reach from the church door to Hen Gwrt. Dafydd Gam is commemorated in a stained glass window , of unknown date, at Llantilio Crossenny church, in the north wall. The inscription is in Latin and the transcription reads 'David Gam, golden haired knight, Lord of the manor of Llantilio Crossenny, killed on the field of Agincourt 1415'.

"IV. EDNYFED AP ARON, of the parish of Llangelynin, Talybont, became heir to a considerable portion of the lands formerly held by his ancestors in the above-named parish.

"He was one of the Bailiffs for the Comôt (or Hundred) of Talybont, and is mentioned 21 Richard II (1397) in a suit growing out of the unsettled conditions then existing in Wales.

"It has been stated that Ednyfed was in sympathy with Owen Glendower, and that, during a reverse in the fortunes of that Chieftain, he secretly entertained him in a cave on the seacoast near his own house, in the parish of Llangelynin. This was in the year 1405. The cave is sitll called 'Ogof Owain,' and is not far distant from the mansion of Llwyndu. There is, however, nothing to indicate that he openly joined the revolt, and his lands were certainly not forfeited. He was one of the heirs to the Wele Wyrion Llewelyn ap Tudor, i.e., the domicile of the grandchildren of Llewelyn ap Tudor (see supra), but it is doubtful if he was alive at the time the extent of 7 Henry V was made, and it seems certain that his children had, at that time (1419), acquired possession of his lands.

"He married Llowry, daughter of Ievan Lloyd Fychan ap Ievan ap Llewelyn ap Ievan Lloyd Fychan, of Pwll Dyfach, in Pembrokeshire, descended from Cadifor ap Dyfnwall, Lord of Castle Howell, in Caermarthenshire.

"Issue:

2. Griffith, ap Ednyfed, of Llanfedigald, in the parish of Llangelynin, Raglor of the Comôt of Talybont, 32 Henry VI (1453-4); he is also named as a Juror in several Inquisitions held in and for the County of Merioneth temp. Henry VI.
3. Llewelyn ap Ednyfed ap Aron, woodwarden for the Comôt of Estimaner, and living 31 Henry VI (1452-3); he is also named as a Juror in several Inquisitions held in and for the County of Merioneth, especially those held at Hartlech, 31 Henry VI.

Research Notes: Source: The History of the Princes, the Lords Marcher, and the Ancient Nobility of Powys Fadog, Vol. 6, by J. Y. W. Lloyd, London, 1887, p. 113, gives his pedigree from Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277, as follows:

"...ab Einion ab Celynin, who killed the Mayor of Caermarthen. Celynin bore sable, a he-goat argent, armed, bearded, and unguled or; and became possessed of Llwydiarth by his marriage with Gwladys, daughter and heiress of Rhirid ab Cynwrig Evell (ag a gavas Llwydiarth Ymhowys). Her mother was Arddun, daughter of Itel Goch, son of Meredydd ab Bleddyn, Prince of Powys. Celynin was the son of Rhirid ab Cynddelw ab Iorwerth ab Gwrgeneu ab Uchtryd ab Aleth, King of Dyved. Azure, three cocks argent, created, wattled, and armed or."

Then the author writes in an extensive footnote:

"But it must be remarked that this is not accordant with the Llwydiarth pedigree as given in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294. There 'Gwellian, the daughter of Meredith ap Rhydderch ap Tewdwr Mawr' (? Mawr) is stated to be the wife of Celynin, and 'Gwladys, daughter of Richard, Lord of Dinas Certhin', to be his mother. It is said, however, that in the Salisbury MSS. at Wynnstay, that Gwladys, the daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell, is stated to be the mother of Celynin, and not the wife, as mentioned in Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277. This would account for the acquisition by Celynin, either by heirship or marriage, of Llwydiarth, assuming that it was part of the territory of Cynwrig Evell.

Celynin was living in the time of Edward II or Edward III (130740), and an experienced genealogist throws a doubt as to the possibility of Celynin, or his father, being contemporaneous with a grand-daughter of Cynwrig Evell.

We cannot venture to pronounce which of these discordant statements is correct, or how they are to be reconciled; but looking at the main circumstances of the case, we should certainly infer that Llwydiarth was acquired by Celynin, by marriage, rather than descent.

"He was a South Wallian by birth and family, and upon committing a homicide,--'killing the Mayor of Caermarthen,'--under what circumstances, and whether justifiably or not, it does not appear, he fled from the scene of his crime--which it is natural to conclude was Caermarthen--to Powys-land.

"According to the Llwydiarth Pedigree in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294, his wife Gwellian, and his mother, Gwladys, as well as the rest of his female ancestresses up to the sixth degree in lineal ascent, were of South Wallian families.

"It is not probable that Llwydiarth could be derived from any of them.

"The statement in the Salisbury MSS., of his mother being the daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell, is most improbable. How should his father, Ririd ap Cynddelw, form an alliance with a family of Powys-land, with which district his family seemed to have no connection until Celynin fled into Powys-land?

"The probabilities of the case all seem to point to Celynin himself being the medium by which this important accretion of territory came to his family.

"He was the first of his family connected with Powys-land.

"The statement in Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277, is distinct and circumstantial, that he married Gwladys, daughter and heiress of Ririd ab Cynwrig Evell, 'ag a gavas Llwydiarth ymhowys' (and obtained Llweydiarth in Powys).

"To reconcile this with the Llwydiarth pedigree in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294, the only theory that occurs to us is, that Celynin must have been married twice: first, before he left his native country, South Wales, to Gwellian, daughter of Meredith ap Rhydderch ap Tewdwr Mawr; and secondly, after he fled from Caermarthen and arrived in Powys-land, to Gwladys, daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell.

"If this theory would hold water, Celynin's son Einion, the first of the family styled 'of Llwydiarth', would inherit that estate from his mother, Gwladys, the second wife, and not Gwenllian, the first wife.

"The direct statement of Lewys Dwnn, who is almost invariably trustworthy, coupled with the strong probability of its truth, seems to us to deserve respect and creidt. Until otherwise advised, therefore, we shall assume, on the authority of this celebrated herald, that Llwydiarth was derived by Celynin through his marriage with its heiress, after he settled in Powys-land.--M. C. J."

From Welsh Biography Online (http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s1-GRIF-PEN-1300.html) :

"(3) The eldest son of Griffith and Generys, GWILYM AP GRIFFITH (d. 1431), m. (c. 1390) his kinswoman, Morfydd, daughter of Goronwy ap Tudur (ob. 1382) of Penmynydd (see under Ednyfed Fychan ). Gwilym thereby gained a further share in 'Gafael Goronwy ab Ednyfed' (Penrhyn) as well as lands in Anglesey. In 1389, Gwilym and his younger brother, ROBIN AP GRIFFITH, were granted by their father his lands in Caernarvonshire and Anglesey and it was probably this step which led to their firm establishment in the area. Lands in Bodfeio were given to Robin, who was the ancestor of the family of Williams of Cochwillan (q.v. in App.) . Gwilym was the real founder of the Penrhyn family, but his precise place of residence before 1400 is not known. His wife's dowry had strengthened his hold on 'Gafael Goronwy ab Ednyfed' (Penrhyn) but his main possessions were in the commotes of Menai and Dindaethwy in Anglesey. His wife's mother (Myfanwy) and brother (Tudur ap Goronwy) were alive in 1397 and might be expected to have lived at Penmynydd; nevertheless, Gwilym ap Griffith is described as 'of Penmynydd' in 1400 and 1403, and his will, dated 1430, was signed there. From 1391 to 1397 he held various crown offices in Anglesey, being sheriff in 1396-7.

"His wife's uncles (Rhys, Gwilym, and Maredudd ap Tudur) gave full support to their cousin, Owain Glyndwr (q.v. , and see under Ednyfed Fychan ); Gwilym himself was more cautious, but he was forced by family and other circumstances to throw in his lot with the rebels about 1402. (As has been said, his father and uncle died in Glyndwr 's service.) His brother, Robin of Cochwillan, was also in rebellion but abandoned Glyndwr before 1408, when he appears as a crown official in Caernarvonshire. Gwilym also made his peace with the king before Nov. 1407, when he was restored to his forfeited possessions and was granted, in addition, the lands of twenty-seven Anglesey adherents of Glyndwr who had probably died in rebellion. By 1410 he had been granted the forfeited lands of his wife's uncles, Rhys and Gwilym ap Tudur, both of whom adhered to Glyndwr to the last. His will, dated 1430, also refers to lands which he had obtained from his Tudor kinsmen; his brother-in-law, Tudur ap Goronwy, appears to have d. c. 1400 and his share of the Tudor possessions undoubtedly came into Gwilym's hands. In all, Gwilym ap Griffith appears to have succeeded, through his father's marriage, his own, and the effects of the Glynd rebellion, in gaining control of most of the patrimony of the Tudors; not the least important of the probable consequences was the departure of Owain Tudor (q.v.) to seek his fortunes at the court of Henry V.

"The date of death of Gwilym's first wife is not known. Some time after 1405 he m. Joan, daughter of Sir William Stanley of Hooton, Ches., thus beginning a long and profitable connexion with the rising star of that family. His son by his first wife inherited only his mother's property at Penmynydd, and he was the ancestor of the later Theodores of that place (see Tudor family, of Penmynydd ). Gwilym ap Griffith d. in 1431, leaving his great possessions in Anglesey and Caernarvonshire to his son by the second marriage. (Penrhyn manuscripts, passim; Trans. Angl. Antiq. Soc., 1951, 34-72; J. R. Jones, 'The development of the Penrhyn estate to 1431', University of Wales M.A. thesis, unpublished.)"

Gwilym married Morfydd verch Goronwy ap Tudur of Penmynydd 299 399 about 1390. Morfydd died before 1405. Another name for Morfydd was Morvyn verch Grono ap Tudor.

The child from this marriage was:

Gwilym next married Jonet Stanley of Hooton 296 367 368 369 370 371 372 after 1405. Jonet was born about 1380 in Hooton, Eastham, Wirral, Cheshire, England and died in 1466 about age 86. Other names for Jonet were Jane Stanley, Jane De Stanley, Janet Stanley, Janet de Stanley, Joan Stanley of Hooton, and Sioned Stanley.

2nd wife of Gwilym ap Gruffydd

From Welsh Biography Online (http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s1-GRIF-PEN-1300.html) :

"Some time after 1405 [Gwilym ap Griffith] m. Joan, daughter of Sir William Stanley of Hooton, Ches., thus beginning a long and profitable connexion with the rising star of that family. His son by his first wife inherited only his mother's property at Penmynydd, and he was the ancestor of the later Theodores of that place (see Tudor family, of Penmynydd ).

---------

The History of the Princes, the Lords Marcher, and the Ancient Nobility of Powys Fadog, and the Ancient Lords of Arwystli, Cedewen, and Meirionydd, Vol. IV, p. 342 shows her as

"Janet, d. of Sir William Stanley of Hooton, co. Chester, Knt., ab Sir William Stanley, Knt., ab Sir William Stanley, Knt." In other words her father was the 3rd Sir William Stanley in a row, the one designated as "of Hooton." By that line of reasoning, she would have been the daughter of Sir William Stanley (1368-1428), making her birth year of abt 1362 impossible.

According to http://www.penrose.org/getperson.php?personID=I40748&tree=penrose,
Jonet is the daughter of William Stanley (abt 1348-bef 1428) and Margery de Hooton (abt 1352-1430). She had 2 brothers, William and John. She had 3 husbands: Robert Paris, Judge (m. abt 1397), Gwilym ap Gryffydd (m. abt 1400) and John Pikine.

FamilySearch.org Compact Disc #94 Pin #316911 (submitted by Samuel Taylor "Sam" Geer) has b. abt 1400, but that would make her marriage to Judge Robert Paris abt 1397 impossible. The year 1400 is most likely the date of her marriage to Gwilym.

A couple of Rootsweb WorldConnect sources have b. abt 1350, father William Stanley b. abt 1328 of Hooten, Cheshire, England. They were probably all copying from the same source.

Another has her as the daughter of William de Stanley (1319-abt 1388) and Alice Massey (1329- ) of Timperley. The source http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mjr6387&id=I45150 has her b. 1360 in Hooten, Eastham, Cheshire, England.

Much confusion about her birthdate. There may have been 2 women with the same name in succeeding generations.

Scenario #1:
Father = William De Stanley the Elder
Mother = Margery De Hooten or ?
Husband 1 = Judge Robert Paris
Husband 2 = Gwilym Ap Gruffydd

Glenda Turcks http://wc.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=DESC&db=nanatea&id=I33919 gives mother as Alice Massey (wife of earlier William Stanley, b. abt 1319).

Other sources have other dates and even have her the daughter of Sir William Stanley (abt 1319-aft 1362) who was married to Alice de Massy.

Janet is not listed by "The Stanley Family of Hooton, Cheshire" as a daughter of William de Stanley (1378-abt 1428). (www.fintco.demon.co.uk/stanley/ches-hooton.htm). That is the William who married (1) Margery de Hooten, (2) Agnes Beckington, (3) Matilda.

405760. Celynin ab Rhirid ab Cynddelw, son of Rhirid ab Cynddelw ab Iorwerth.

Research Notes: Source: The History of the Princes, the Lords Marcher, and the Ancient Nobility of Powys Fadog, Vol. 6, by J. Y. W. Lloyd, London, 1887, p. 113, gives his pedigree from Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277, as follows:

"...ab Llewelyn ab Einion ab Celynin, who killed the Mayor of Caermarthen. Celynin bore sable, a he-goat argent, armed, bearded, and unguled or; and became possessed of Llwydiarth by his marriage with Gwladys, daughter and heiress of Rhirid ab Cynwrig Evell (ag a gavas Llwydiarth Ymhowys). Her mother was Arddun, daughter of Itel Goch, son of Meredydd ab Bleddyn, Prince of Powys. Celynin was the son of Rhirid ab Cynddelw ab Iorwerth ab Gwrgeneu ab Uchtryd ab Aleth, King of Dyved. Azure, three cocks argent, created, wattled, and armed or."

Then the author writes in an extensive footnote:

"But it must be remarked that this is not accordant with the Llwydiarth pedigree as given in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294. There 'Gwellian, the daughter of Meredith ap Rhydderch ap Tewdwr Mawr' (? Mawr) is stated to be the wife of Celynin, and 'Gwladys, daughter of Richard, Lord of Dinas Certhin', to be his mother. It is said, however, that in the Salisbury MSS. at Wynnstay, that Gwladys, the daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell, is stated to be the mother of Celynin, and not the wife, as mentioned in Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277. This would account for the acquisition by Celynin, either by heirship or marriage, of Llwydiarth, assuming that it was part of the territory of Cynwrig Evell.

Celynin was living in the time of Edward II or Edward III (130740), and an experienced genealogist throws a doubt as to the possibility of Celynin, or his father, being contemporaneous with a grand-daughter of Cynwrig Evell.

We cannot venture to pronounce which of these discordant statements is correct, or how they are to be reconciled; but looking at the main circumstances of the case, we should certainly infer that Llwydiarth was acquired by Celynin, by marriage, rather than descent.

"He was a South Wallian by birth and family, and upon committing a homicide,--'killing the Mayor of Caermarthen,'--under what circumstances, and whether justifiably or not, it does not appear, he fled from the scene of his crime--which it is natural to conclude was Caermarthen--to Powys-land.

"According to the Llwydiarth Pedigree in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294, his wife Gwellian, and his mother, Gwladys, as well as the rest of his female ancestresses up to the sixth degree in lineal ascent, were of South Wallian families.

"It is not probable that Llwydiarth could be derived from any of them.

"The statement in the Salisbury MSS., of his mother being the daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell, is most improbable. How should his father, Ririd ap Cynddelw, form an alliance with a family of Powys-land, with which district his family seemed to have no connection until Celynin fled into Powys-land?

"The probabilities of the case all seem to point to Celynin himself being the medium by which this important accretion of territory came to his family.

"He was the first of his family connected with Powys-land.

"The statement in Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277, is distinct and circumstantial, that he married Gwladys, daughter and heiress of Ririd ab Cynwrig Evell, 'ag a gavas Llwydiarth ymhowys' (and obtained Llweydiarth in Powys).

"To reconcile this with the Llwydiarth pedigree in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294, the only theory that occurs to us is, that Celynin must have been married twice: first, before he left his native country, South Wales, to Gwellian, daughter of Meredith ap Rhydderch ap Tewdwr Mawr; and secondly, after he fled from Caermarthen and arrived in Powys-land, to Gwladys, daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell.

"If this theory would hold water, Celynin's son Einion, the first of the family styled 'of Llwydiarth', would inherit that estate from his mother, Gwladys, the second wife, and not Gwenllian, the first wife.

"The direct statement of Lewys Dwnn, who is almost invariably trustworthy, coupled with the strong probability of its truth, seems to us to deserve respect and creidt. Until otherwise advised, therefore, we shall assume, on the authority of this celebrated herald, that Llwydiarth was derived by Celynin through his marriage with its heiress, after he settled in Powys-land.--M. C. J."

Research Notes: Note: The present researcher has been unable as yet to find an authoritative source that would definitively answer questions about William de Stanleigh's wives, children, birth/death dates, parentage of Jonet Stanley, etc. The reader is advised not to rely on this site as its sole source.

For example, Website http://cybergata.com/roots/8444.htm has Margery de Hooton (Margaret de Houghton) married to Sir William de Stanley (1368-1428). In my opinion, that William is her son, and Margery de Hooton was married to an elder William de Stanley (c. 1337-1398). kjf 27 Jun 2013.

That same source (http://cybergata.com/roots/484.htm) does, however, contain the following useful information:
~Cokayne's Complete Peerage, (Stanley), 247. calls him Forester of Wirral Forest, which he successfully claimed in 1361/2. In 1355 he was accused of participating in an attack on the Abbey of Burton-upon-Trent.

http://stanleyroots.co.uk/thenorthwest.htm "The Stanleys of Storeton in Chester":

William de Stanleigh 'The Elder' (1337-1398) probably built Storeton Hall near Bebington (still standing, SJ3084) as his main residence, around 1360, after the death of his father.

In 1376 William de Stanleigh complained to King Edward III about the deforestation of the Wirral, which was blamed on the Black Prince (the late son of the king). The king agreed that William (as hereditary forester) should continue to receive the profits from the forest, and in 1397 he was granted 20 marks a year by the crown in compensation (Patent Rolls). He seems to have been on military service in Ireland shortly before his death (Patent Rolls). When William 'the Elder' died in 1398, it seems his second wife and widow Matilda was not maintained by her step-son Sir William de Stanley, so in 1400 Henry IV granted Matilda "who has come to such poverty that she cannot keep her estate" 2d a day for life.

From The Baronetage of England, vol. 2, p. 206 :
"William, his son, lord of Stanley, &c. living 26 Edw. III, married Alicia, daughter of Hugh Massey, de Timperly, sister to Sir Hamond Massey, Knt. and had issue by her William de Stanley, lord of Stanley, &c. living 10 Rich. II. Henry, Matildes, and John. Which last William, the son and heir, married Margaret, daughter and sole heir of William de Hooton, lord of Hooton, in Wirehall in Cheshire, where that family have since continued to this day."

From The History of the House of Stanley from the Conquest to the Death of the Right Honourable Edward, Late Earl of Derby, in 1776, pp. 14-15 :

From "GOUSHILL FITZ-ALAN TOMB AT HOVERINGHAM
" (http://sites.google.com/site/goushilltomb/goushill-tomb/) :

SIR ROBERT GOUSHILL: Sir Robet Goushill was knighted by King Henry IV at the battle of Shrewsbury on July 21,1403. At the Battle of Shrewsbury the loyalist forces of Henry IV were opposed by the rebel army of Henry Percy (Hotspur). The army of King Henry IV won the day with the killing of Hotspur during the conflict. Casulties on both sides were high with estimates of 3000 killed or wounded on each side. Sir Robert Goushill was knighted the day of the battle for his gallantry, but was badly wounded in the side. Found lying wounded by his servant on the eve of the battle, Goushill asked that his armor be removed and a note sent to his wife Elizabeth in case of his death. The servant then stabbed and murdered Sir Robert Goushill and made off with his purse and ring. Another wounded man lying nearby recognized the servant, and he was later caught and hanged for the crime. The arms of Sir Robert Goushill would be placed in the Shrewsbury Battlefield Church erected as a memorial by King Henry IV.
Robert Goushill was the son and heir of Sir Nicholas Goushill of Hoveringham. The date of his birth is unknown, but can be estimated to be circa 1360-1365. Likewise, the name of his mother also remains unknown. The Goushill family had held extensive lands in Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire since the 13th century. Walter Goushill, an early ancestor in the direct line, gained a number of these considerable holdings for the Goushills through his marriage to Maud (Matilda) Hathersage, the co-heiress of Mathew Hathersage in Derbyshire. (The early pedigree of the Goushill family of Hoveringham can be found in the History of Nottinghamshire by Dr. Robert Thoroton). In the calendar of patent rolls of Richard II on March 12, 1386, the King orders the arrest of Sir Nicholas Goushill the elder and his son Robert Goushill to answer the suit brought by William Birkes accusing the Goushills of threatning him with the loss of life and limb that he dare go about his business. On July 16, 1385, Sir Nicholas Goushill received the King's pardon. During 1387, Nicholas Goushill knight of Hoveringham and his son Robert Goushill are found in the chancery records to owe a debt of 22 pounds to Robert Wells of London. The next mention of Robert Goushill occurs in 1390 when he receives the King's pardon for alleged outlawry and other felonies through the supplication of Thomas Mowbray. Thomas Mowbray was at that time Earl of Nottingham and later would become the Duke of Norfolk. This evidences that Robert Goushill was already a supporter of Thomas Mowbray of whom he would be an employee of for the next decade. It is interesting to note that Elizabeth Fitz-Alan, the future wife of Robert Goushill, had been the wife of Mowbray since 1384.
During the 1390's, Robert Goushill would be in the retinue of Thomas Mowbray, Earl of Nottingham, Marshal of England, and Duke of Norfolk, serving as Mowbray's esquire and attorney. When Thomas Mowbray received his ducal elevation in 1397, he gave to his esquire Robert Goushill a 20 pound annuity for life from his manor at Willington. This grant was confirmed by Henry IV in November of 1399. In 1398, after the Duke of Norfolk was banished by Richard II, Robert Goushill was appointed one of the attorneys for Mowbray. At the coronation of King Edward IV on October 13, 1399, Robert Goushill would make a plea for the return of the banished Duke of Norfolk as Earl Marshall, not knowing Mowbray had already died of the plague in Venice, Italy on September 22, 1399. In the mid 1390's, Robert Goushill had married as a first wife Joan Bracebrugge, who was the widow of Sir Ralph Bracebrugge of Kingsbury, Warwickshire. Joan (maiden name unknown) had married Ralph Bracebrugge in 1380 and his death occured in August, 1395. The marriage of Robert Goushill and Joan Bracebrugge likely was in 1396, and Joan would die early in the year 1400. (IPM Henry IV, 1-6). In 1397 Richard II appointed Sir William Bagot and Robert Goushill to seize into his hands the goods and chattels of Thomas the late Earl of Warwick. (Goushill served as Warwickshire sheriff in 1396/97). After Richard II was deposed, the new King Henry IV made a grant on Feb. 23, 1400 to his kinswoman Elizabeth, the wife of the late Duke of Norfolk, of the remaining goods of the late Duke as well as clearing the debts that the Duke had owed to the deposed Richard II. Others stated to share in the remaining goods of the deceased Duke of Norfolk included Robert Goushill.
Robert Goushill would marry the widowed Elizabeth Fitz-Alan, Duchess of Norfolk, in the latter part of 1400 or early 1401 without license. On August 19, 1401, King Henry IV seized the lands of Elizabeth, late widow of Thomas Mowbray, for marrying Robert Goushill without license. On September 28, 1401, Henry IV would pardon Robert Goushill esquire and Elizabeth, late wife of Thomas, duke of Norfolk, for their trespass for inter-marrying without license and that they shall have restitution of all lands assigned to her in dower with the issues from the time of their marriage. Joan Goushill, the 1st daughter of Robert and Elizabeth, would be born in 1401, and a 2nd daughter Elizabeth Goushill would be born in 1402. Many present day descendants of these two daughters trace their ancestry to the Plantagenet Kings of England through Joan Goushill who married Sir Thomas Stanley, 1st Baron Stanley, and Elizabeth Goushill who married Sir Robert Wingfield of Letheringham, Suffolk. (My own descent is through the Goushill-Wingfield marriage). A 3rd daughter named Joyce is now credited to Robert and Elizabeth. She was found in a 1407 lawsuit being named after older daughters Joan and Elizabeth. As she is not named in Robert Goushill's Inq. Post Mortum of 1403, she would certainly seem to have been born after Robert Goushill's death. No futher trace of Joyce Goushill has been found. After the tragic death of Sir Robert Goushill at the battle of Shrewsbury on July 21, 1403, his Inquisition Post Mortum was held August 6, 1403. His heirs are given as his daughters Joan and Elizabeth, aged two years and one year respectively. A final thought regarding the pedigree of the Goushill family of Hoveringham as given by Thoroton: the pedigree lists the Sir Nicholas Goushill dying in 1393 as the grandfather of Robert Goushill and Robert's father as another Nicholas Goushill. This 2nd Nicholas Goushill listed in the pedigree was very likely confused with the Sir Nicholas Goushill of Barlborough, Derbyshire who was also at the battle of Shrewsbury. He was certainly a relative and contemporary of Robert Goushill and either brother or first cousin, but not his father. The first 1380's records that mention Robert Goushill appear with Sir Nicholas Goushill the ELDER given as the father of Robert Goushill. I believe the evidence stongly suggests that the father of Robert Goushill was the Sir Nicholas Goushill who died in 1393 and was buried at St. Michael's church at Hoveringham.

From Wikipedia - Hoveringham :

Hoveringham is a small village in Nottinghamshire about 10 miles (16 km) northeast of Nottingham and on the west side of the River Trent , just off the A612 trunk road to Southwell . The adjacent area has extensive sand and gravel deposits which have been quarried there for many years.

Historical
Hoveringham "is a pleasant village and parish near the Trent , between Nottingham and Newark , five miles (8 km) south by west of Southwell . Its parish comprises 361 inhabitants and 850 acres (3.4 km2) of land. Near the village there was once a ferry across the Trent to Kneeton . In the reign on Henry III it was possessed by Hugh de Hoveringham , and afterwards passed to the Goushill family, by whom a great part of the estate was given to Thurgarton Priory, from which it passed to Trinity College, Cambridge , which has since received other lands in lieu of the tithes. This parish was tithe free for upwards of 70 years until 1851, when four shillings per acre was laid on as tithe, but it is the opinion of all the freeholders that it is not legal. In 1795, many old writings and documents which were deposited in the church were destroyed by the great flood. It is supposed that the writings belonging to the land which was set apart in lieu of the tithes were amongst them. Sir Richard Sutton, Bart., is lessee of the manorial rights, and of 647 acres (2.62 km2) of college land, which was held by the Cooper family, from the time of the Reformation till 1830. There are about 20 freeholders in the parish.The church is a small, ancient structure, dedicated to St. Michael , and is in the patronage of the same college. It is a perpetual curacy, was valued at £60, and is annexed to that of Thurgarton ."[2]

• Sheriff of Warwickshire: 1397.

Marriage Notes: Married without license. On August 19, 1401, King Henry IV seized the lands of Elizabeth, late widow of Thomas Mowbray, for marrying Robert Goushill without license. On September 28, 1401, Henry IV would pardon Robert Goushill esquire and Elizabeth, late wife of Thomas, duke of Norfolk, for their trespass for inter-marrying without license and that they shall have restitution of all lands assigned to her in dower with the issues from the time of their marriage.

From "GOUSHILL FITZ-ALAN TOMB AT HOVERINGHAM
" (http://sites.google.com/site/goushilltomb/goushill-tomb/) :

ELIZABETH FITZ-ALAN: Elizabeth was the eldest daughter of Richard Fitz-Alan the 11th Earl of Arundel and his wife Elizabeth de Bohun. Both the Fitz-Alan and Bohun family lines were among the highest in the peerage of medieval England. Elizabeth Fitz-Alan had a double line of direct descent from the Plantagenet Kings of England. Through her mother's Bohun line she was a direct descendant of King Edward I and Eleanor of Castile, and through her Fitz-Alan ancestry a direct descendant of King Henry III and Eleanor of Provence. She was also related by cousinship to both King Henry IV and to his first wife Mary Bohun. Elizabeth was born before 1372, (in 1415 she was given as aged 40 or more), and a best estimate would be closer to 1367. By December of 1378 she would be married to her first husband William de Montagu, son of the Earl of Salisbury. This marriage for Elizabeth would certainly have been in her childhood. William de Montagu was killed in a tilting match at Windsor in 1382. Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would marry as her 2nd husband Thomas Mowbray, the Earl of Nottingham and later the Duke of Norfolk, in July of 1384. This marriage would last for 15 years until Thomas Mowbray's death in Venice on September 22, 1399. Elizabeth would have 2 sons and 2 daughters during her marriage with Thomas Mowbray. The sons were Thomas Mowbray 1385-1405 and John Mowbray 1390-1432, (both of these sons would assume the title Earl of Nottingham), the 2 daughters were Margaret who married Sir Robert Howard, and Isabel who married Henry Ferrers. In 1397 Thomas Mowbray was among those who accused and condemed Elizabeth's father Richard Fitz-Alan, the Earl of Arundel. Richard Fitz-Alan was found guilty of treason and be-headed at Cheapside on September 21, 1397. One apocryphal rumor even had Thomas Mowbray as the actual executioner of his father-in-law Richard Fitz-Alan. The now twice widowed Duchess of Norfolk would next marry Sir Robert Goushill as previously discussed in length. After the death of Sir Robert Goushill at Shrewsbury in 1403, she would marry Sir Gerald Usflete of Yorkshire as her fourth husband before April 18, 1411. Sir Gerald Usflete was the steward of the Duchy of Lancaster in Lincolnshire. Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would become a co-heiress of her brother Thomas, Earl of Arundel and Surrey, in 1415. (Thomas had died sans progeny on October 13, 1415, and his sisters had become his heirs). Sir Gerald Usflete died by Feb. 1420/21, having written his will on September 13, 1420. No children were born to Elizabeth Fitz-Alan and Gerald Usflete.

Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would live on after the death of her fourth husband Gerald Usflete until her own death on July 8, 1425. It is believed that she returned to Hoveringham in her final years. Born in the reign of King Edward III, she would live through the reigns of Richard II, Henry IV, Henry V, and into the reign of Henry VI. Through blood and marriage, Elizabeth Fitz-Alan would be closely touched by nearly all of the events in this period of turbulence, violence, and political turmoil in English history.

From Archæologia Cambrensis, Vol. VII, 6th Series, 1907, pp. 16-17:

"...As Thomas Earl of Arundel died without heirs male surviving, his estates were divided, subject to the aforesaid dower, among his three sisters, or among their children or grandchildren in right of them. These sisters were Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk; Joan, wife of William Beauchamp, Lord Abergavenny; and Margaret, wife of Sir Roland Lenthall, knight, all of whom were still living on the 20th July, 1416. The inheritors of the three portions after the death of the Countess Beatrix [25 October 1447] were (1) John Mowbray, son of Thomas Mowbray, Duke of Norfolk; (2) Elizabeth, wife of Sir Edward Neville, and daughter of Richard, Earl of Worcester, who was the son of Joan, Lady Abergavenny; and (3) Edmund, son of Sir Roland and Margaret Lenthall."

Noted events in her life were:

• Granted: the remaining goods of the late Duke of Norfolk by King Henry IV, 23 Feb 1400.

Elizabeth married Sir William de Montacute.,450 451 452 son of William Montacute 2nd Earl of Salisbury. William was born about 1360 and died on 6 Aug 1383 about age 23. Another name for William was John Montague.

Elizabeth next married Sir Thomas de Mowbray 6th Lord Mowbray, 1st Duke of Norfolk,453 454 son of John de Mowbray 4th Lord Mowbray and Elizabeth de Segrave 5th Baroness Segrave, in Jul 1384. Thomas was born on 22 Mar 1366 and died on 22 Sep 1399 in Venice, Italy at age 33.

Death Notes: Died from the Plague

Research Notes: From Wikipedia - Thomas de Mowbray, 1st Duke of Norfolk

Thomas de Mowbray, 1st Duke of Norfolk (22 March 1366 - 22 September 1399 ) was an English nobleman.

On 10 February 1382 , he succeeded his brother John as 6th Baron Mowbray and 7th Baron Segrave, and soon afterwards was created Earl of Nottingham, a title that had also been created for his elder brother. Three years later he was appointed Earl Marshal of England , and in that capacity he fought against the Scots and then against the French .

Lord Nottingham was one of the Lords Appellant to King Richard II who deposed some of King Richard's court favorites in 1387 . The King's uncle, Thomas of Woodstock, 1st Duke of Gloucester , was imprisoned at Calais, where Nottingham was Captain. When Gloucester was killed in 1397 , it was probably at the King's orders and probably with Nottingham's involvement. A few weeks later he was created Duke of Norfolk . His aged grandmother, the Countess of Norfolk, was still alive; she was created Duchess of Norfolk for life. When she died the next year he also became 3rd Earl of Norfolk.

Later, in 1398 , Norfolk quarrelled with Henry of Bolingbroke, 1st Duke of Hereford (later King Henry IV), apparently due to mutual suspicions stemming from their roles in the conspiracy against the Duke of Gloucester. The King banished them both. After Hereford returned and usurped the throne, Norfolk was stripped of the Dukedom of Norfolk, though he retained his other titles. He died of the plague in Venice , on 22 September 1399 .[citation needed ]

The matter of Norfolk's quarrel and subsequent banishment is depicted at the beginning of Shakespeare 's Richard II .

Norfolk had no children by his first wife, Elizabeth le Strange, suo jure 3rd Baroness Strange , daughter and heiress of John le Strange, 2nd Baron Strange . He had two sons by his second wife, Lady Elizabeth FitzAlan , daughter of Richard FitzAlan, 11th Earl of Arundel : Thomas , later 4th Earl of Norfolk; and John , later 5th Earl of Norfolk, later restored as 2nd Duke of Norfolk.

Family
Mowbray was the son of John de Mowbray, 4th Baron Mowbray (died 1368 ), and Elizabeth Segrave, Baroness Mowbray and suo jure 5th Baroness Segrave (died 1375 ). His mother was the eldest daughter of John de Segrave, 4th Baron Segrave and Margaret Plantagenet, Duchess of Norfolk , who was the eldest daughter of Thomas of Brotherton, 1st Earl of Norfolk , a son of Edward I of England and his second Queen consort Marguerite of France . Thus Mowbray was a great-great-grandson of King Edward I.

Noted events in his life were:

• 1st Duke of Norfolk: 1397.

• Banished: by King Richard II, 1398.

Children from this marriage were:

             i.  Thomas de Mowbray 4th Earl of Norfolk was born in 1385 and died on 8 Jun 1405 at age 20.

            ii.  John de Mowbray Duke of Norfolk was born in 1392 and died on 19 Oct 1432 in Epworth at age 40.

           iii.  Margaret de Mowbray

Elizabeth next married Sir Robert Goushill of Hoveringham, Lord of Hault Hucknall Manor 414 415 416 417 418 before 19 Aug 1401. Robert was born about 1363 in <Hoveringham, Nottinghamshire, England> and died before 1414 in <Hoveringham, Nottinghamshire, England>. Another name for Robert was Sir Robert Gousell.

Elizabeth next married Sir Gerard Usflete 415 455 before 3 Jul 1414. Another name for Gerard was Sir Gerard Ufflete of Wigmore.

From Wikipedia - Robert Puleston :
Robert Puleston was a brother-in-law and supporter of Owain Glyndwr , at the time of his rebellion against King Henry IV of England in the early 1400s and afterwards.

Lineage
He was from a well established Welsh Marcher family [1]. Pulestons had settled during the reign of King Henry III in Newport, Shropshire initially, in Pilston village and manor, from where they derive their surname.
A Sir Roger de Puleston (died 1294) established himself at Emral in Maelor Saesneg , and was appointed the first Sheriff of Anglesey by King Edward I in 1293. His first task there was to impose the new English taxes (one fifteenth of all moveables) that unsurprisingly led to the revolt of Madog ap Llywelyn , at the height of which the Welsh mob seized the Sheriff and hanged him following a raid on Caernarvon borough.

Another Puleston, Richard de Puleston, was at this time King Edward's Sheriff in Caernarvonshire and had been appointed the same date as Sir Roger, so is very likely to have been a close relation, probably a brother.

Career
Robert Puleston was son of Richard Puleston. He was a witness in the Scrope v. Grosvenor Trial at Chester in 1386, alongside another witness Owain Glynd trial was to settle a dispute between Sir Richard le Scrope of Bolton and Sir Robert Grosvenor of Hulme concerning ownership of a coat of arms. During King Richard II 's military campaign in Scotland in 1385 three knights had borne the same coat of arms. Also involved was Carminow of Cornwall .

The Court was presided over by the Duke of Gloucester as Constable of England who also adjudicated on the eveidence presented by each party and their many witnesses. The trial was to run for five years.
Glynd gave evidence on behalf of Grosvenor saying he had seen Grosvenor bear the arms and that in the counties of Flintshire , Chester and Denbighshire they were accepted as being his rightfully. Glynd younger brother Tudur also testified to this, as did Puleston. However, eventually Scrope won.

Puleston later took part in Glynd rebellion and his extensive lands in the county of Chester , in Shropshire and Flintshire were declared forfeit before 1401. However as part of the programme of Royal Pardons meted out by the new King Henry V he received his old lands back, restored to him after the rebellion had petered out around 1415.

Marriage and issue
Robert Puleston married Owain Glynd's younger sister, Lowry. They had a son called John Puleston, whose will was proved in 1444. He married Angharad, a daughter of Griffith Hanmer, of the same family as Owain Glynd wife, Margaret Hanmer . Angharad was a granddaughter of Gronw ap Tudor of Anglesey . Another son, Roger Puleston (died 1469), who was a staunch ally of Jasper Tudor , Earl of Pembroke holding Denbigh Castle as Deputy Constable to Jasper Tudor in 1460 and 1461.

From Welsh Biography Online - http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s-PULE-EST-1283.html :

PULESTON family, of Emral , Plas-ym-mers , Hafod-y-wern , Llwynycnotiau , Caernarvon , etc.

(1) The Pulestons derived their name from the vill or manor of Pilston or Puleston, near Newport, Salop, where they were settled in the reign of Henry III, and continued to hold land at least until 1433. Sir ROGER DE PULESTON (d. 1294) is believed to have been the first to establish himself at Emral in Maelor Saesneg; he is described as 'de Embers-hall' in 1283; and the following year 'foresta domini Rogeri de Pyvylston' occurs as a boundary in a deed of sale of lands in Gwillington (Arch. Camb., 1888, 32, 293). On 20 March 1293/4 he was appointed by Edward I the first sheriff of Anglesey (Cal. Welsh Rolls, 283), and as such was responsible for levying the odious tax of a fifteenth on moveables which precipitated the revolt led by Madog ap Llywelyn (q.v.) in the autumn of 1294. At the height of the rising the hated sheriff was seized and hanged by the Anglesey Welshmen during a sudden raid on the borough of Caernarvon. In all probability Master Richard de Puleston, who was sheriff of Caernarvonshire, 1284-95 (he was appointed on the same day as Sir Roger), was of the same family, although the pedigrees do not help to establish his exact identity. ROBERT PULESTON, son of Richard Puleston of Emral (alive 1382/3 - B. M. Harley MS. 1971), was a witness in the celebrated Scrope-Grosvenor trial of [1386], together with Owain Glyn Dwr (q.v.) , whose sister Lowry he married. For his part in the rebellion Robert's estates in the counties of Chester, Salop, and Flint were forfeited (Cal. Pat. Rolls, Henry IV, 1399-1401, 370), but were later restored. Robert's grandson, ROGER PULESTON (d. 1469), whose father, JOHN PULESTON (will proved 17 April 1444), had m. Angharad, daughter of Griffith Hanmer and grand-daughter of Tudur ap Gronwy of Anglesey, was a staunch Lancastrian and held Denbigh castle as deputy-constable to his kinsman, Jasper, earl of Pembroke during the campaign of 1460-1.

"...and as to the Hywel ap Goronwy, whose name ends [the pedigree], there is in existence a 'marwnad' or 'elegy' on his death, composed by Lewis Glyn Cothi, whose period of political activity belongs, roughly speaking, to the middle of the 15th century. In this elegy occurs the line 'Mae Gwrecsam am wr o'm iaith,' that is 'Wrexham is [the town] for a man of my language,' showing how thoroughly Welsh at that time Wrexham was. The Hywel ap Goronwy just named was the last inheritor of Hafod y wern in the direct male line of the old Welsh family of that place. He left two daughters, of whom Alswn (the Welsh form of Alice) had Hafod y wern for her portion, and married Hywel ap Ieuan ap Gruffydd, of Bersham (living in 1467), by whom she had one daughter, Alswn, sole heiress of Hafod y wern, who married John Puleston, Esq., of Bers (Plas ym Mhers, now called 'Upper Berse'), eldest son of Madoc Puleston, Esq.
