Research Notes: Child - Sir William Troutbeck of Pyrns Castle in Worrill, Lord of Dunham

First husband of Margaret Stanley.

From Welsh Settlement of Pennsylvania, p. 286: "Sir William Troutbeck, lord of Prynes Castle, Cheshire, who was slain in the battle of Bloreheath". What is the correct spelling of the castle?
----
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. VI., had granted to Johi Comiti Arondel, Johi Beamond, Vicund de Beamond, John Sutton dno de Dudley, Thomas Stanley, Thome Parre, Rico Turnstall, Thome de Convey, Militibz, Petro de Ardern Justic dni Regis de coi Banco, Gilbto Parre, Johi Pulesdon, Rico Pulesdon, Mag'ro Andree Holes, Clico, Hugoni Pembton, Rico Asshawe, Thome Bellamond, Clico, and others)--the manors of Brinstath, Dunham, Troghford, and Budworth, cum pert. with lands in Carnesdale, Barneston, Oxton, Tranmore, Upton, Raby, L. Newton, Hergreave, Newton in Wirrill, Chester, Handbridge, Woodchurch, Christelton, Ledsham, Pickmere, Moberley, Newton Juxta le Midelwich, and the avowson (of the Church) of Moberley for use for life. 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. Also the manors and advowsons of Moberley, the manors of Brunstath, Raby and Budworth, half of L. Neston, and one-fifth of Hargreave; (the manors of Elton and Oxton, and a moiety of the ville of Pykmere;) with lands in Hargreave, Barneston, Carnesdale, Ledsham, Woodchurch, Eccleston, Chester Hulme, Kinderton, Bereton, Newton, Cogshull, Xtlton, Tattenhall, Bridge Troughford, Elton, Oxton, Pickmere, Thingwall, Tranmere, Upton, and Wirswall. William Troutbek, son and heir, (aet. 15 ann. et maritatus Johanne filie Johis. Botiller Militis, and ward of the latter by grant of the King, 8 Jan. 2 Edw. IV).'

"For evidences of the marriage of Sir William Troutbeck and Margaret Stanley, see Dougdale, vol. II., page 248, (et E. Stemmate) wherein he states that Sir Thomas, Lord Stanley, left 'issue" three sons, Thomas, William and John; and two daughters, Margaret, married to Sir William Troutbeck, Knight, and Elizabeth to Sir Richard Molineux, Knight' See also Collins' Peerage of England, vol. III., page 40, etc. Edition 1779, London, Pedigree of Troutbeck of Dunham, by Robert Glover, Somerset Herald, for William Flower, Nortry King-at-arms; visitations of Cheshire, 1580 (Harl. MS. 1424, fo. 1287). Printed Edition, London, 1882, by John Paul Rylands, F.S.A.--Also, Harl. MS. 1424, fo. 136b, Pedigree of Troutbeck of Dunham, by William Beaumont, Esq. of Oxford Hall (see Hist. Cheshire, by George Ormerod, Revised Edition). Also visitations of Wales by Lewis Dwnn, Penrhyn Pedigree. The best evidence, however, is the Dispensation, dated 23 January, 1459 (O. S.) (or 1460, N.S.) to Margaret, widow of William Troutbeck and daughter of Thomas Lord Stanley, deceased, to marry Sir John Botler, Knight, which marriage took place in 1460, and the said Sir John, dying 26 February, 1463, the said Margaret married, thirdly, 2 October, 1465, Lord Grey, of Codnor.

"It should be remembered that the month of January, 1459, is four months after September, and not prior to it, the year not beginning then until March.

"The children of Sir William Troutbeck and the Lady Margaret were:
1. William Troutbeck 'aet. 15 years, 4 Edw. IV., ward of Sir John Botler, alias Butler, by grant of the King, 8 January, 2 Edw. IV.,' married to Johannes, daughter of the said Sir John. No issue.
2. Adam Troutbeck; his heiress married John Talbot, ancestor of the Earls of Shrewsbury.
3. Thomas Troutbeck.
4. Alice Troutbeck.
5. Jane Troutbeck, married 1st, Sir William Botler, of Bewsey, Knight, and 2ndly, Sir William Griffith, of Penrhyn, Knight; of whom presently.
6. Elizabeth Troutbeck, married Sir Alexander Houghton, Knight."

Research Notes: Husband - Ellis ap Rees of Bryn Mawr, Dôlgelly

From Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry, p. 31:

"The title papers to this property [Tythyn Bryn Mawr in Merionethshire] are now in possession of Edward Griffith, Esq., of Springfield, near Dôlgelly, a descendant of Ann, eldest daughter of Rowland Ellis by his first wife. Amongst these old documents is the original marriage contract and settlement made upon the marriage of Ellis Price [Ellis ap Rees] and Anne Humphrey, the parents of Rowland Ellis, in 1649. The parties to this settlement were: Humphrey (Humffrey) ap Hugh, of Llwyngwril, gentleman, father of Anne Humphrey, Rees Lewis ap John Griffith, of Dyffrydan, gentleman, father of Ellis Price, who was his second son, and Richard Nanney, of Llwyngwril, and David Ellis, of Gwanas, gentlemen, who were to act as trustees. Richard Nanney was cousin to Anne, his father, the Rector of Llangelynin having married one of the daughters of Hugh Gwyn, of Peniarth. David Ellis was brother-in-law to Rees Lewis, the latter having married his sister Catherine.

"The witnesses to this document were: John ap William ap Humffrey, David John Hugh, Griffith ap Rees Lewis, Edward Vaughn and John ap Hugh. Rowland Ellis, born in 1650, was the only child of Ellis Price (alias ap Rees) and Anne Humphrey, and therefore inherited Bryn Mawr under this settlement and continued to live there until his permanent removal to Pennsylvania in 1696; when he sold the place to Lewis Owen, of Tyddyn y Garreg, his kinsman, to whom he was indebted."

This book contains a facsimile "Pedigree of Rowland Ellis, in his own handwriting. Original in possession of one of his descendants."

Also from Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry:
"A memorial of Rowland Ellis says:

'Rowland Ellis was a man of note in the neighborhood in which he resided and had a competent estate. In the year 1686, the subject of a removal to Pennsylvania pressing on his mind, he concluded to visit the province and make such arrangements as might be best for the accommodation of his family when the time should fully come for transporting them there.' He sailed from Milford Haven 16th of 8th month, 1686, bringing with him his eldest son, Rowland. The ship was twenty-four weeks reaching Philadelphia, arriving, after a great deal of suffering, about the beginning of the second month, 1687. He remained about nine months, when he returned to Wales, leaving his son with his nephew, John Humphrey. He did not return to Pennsylvania until 1697, when he brought his entire family, except Ann, who had married Re. Johnson, Rector of Dôlgelly. He settled at Bryn Mawr, but, having sold that plantation, removed to Plymouth, and died at the house of his son-in-law, John Evans, of Gwynedd, 7th month, 1731. He was a member of Assembly 1700, and was a Justice of the Peace. Rowland Ellis married, first, Margaret, daughter and heiress of Ellis Morris, of Golgun; and secondly, Margaret, daughter of Robert ap Owen ap Lewis, of Dyffryddan, his cousin, who died 1730."

From Wikipedia - Dolgellau :

"After a visit by George Fox in 1657, many inhabitants of Dolgellau converted to Quakerism . Persecution led a large number of them to emigrate to Pennsylvania in 1686, under the leadership of Rowland Ellis , a local gentleman-famer. The Pennsylvanian town of Bryn Mawr , home to an Ivy-League women's liberal arts college , is named after Ellis's farm near Dolgellau."

Research Notes: Husband - John Humphrey of Llanwddyn

From Welsh Settlement of Pennsylvania, p. 287:
"JOHN HUMPHREY, WHO m. his cousin, Jane [Joan] Humphrey (sister to Richard Humphrey, who was a Haverford [Pennsylvania] land owner), and bought land in Haverford, and removed to it."

From Welsh Settlement of Pensylvania, pp. 150-152:

Two brothers, JOHN HUMPHREY, of Llanwddyn, and SAMUEL HUMPHREY, were Haverford [Pennsylvania] land owners, and their cousin RICHARD HUMPHREY, a purchaser from "Richard Davis Co. No. 7." John and Richard, came over in the "Morning Star," with Hugh Roberts, in 1683, as mentioned.

John and Samuel were sons of Humphrey ap Hugh, of Llwyngrill (1662), and "late of Llwyn du," in Merioneth, d. about 1664-5, by his wife, Elizabeth Powel, daughter of John ap Howel (or Powel, who was buried in the parish church of Llanwddyn, in Montgomeryshire, 24 July, 1636), and his wife, Sibill v. Hugh Gwyn, of Penarth.

They were uncles of Rowland Ellis, of "Bryn Mawr," Merion [Pennsylvania], (whose land adjoined Benjamin Humphrey's land), and also of Robert Owen's wife, Rebecca, (whose farm lay to the eastward on both sides of Montgomery avenue, between Ardmore and Wynnewood), and of John Owen and Josehua Owen, of Merion (1683), (whose property adjoined that of Humphrey), and of Elizabeth, wife of "John Roberts, of the Mill," and "of Wayn Mill," who came from Pen y Chyd, in Denbighshire (whose estate was northward of Humphrey). They were brothers to Owen Humphrey, of Llwyn du, 1625-1695, a J. P. in Merioneth, and a prominent Friend, who was the father of Rebecca, wife of Robert Owen, of Merion, and Elizabeth, wife of John Roberts, aforesaid.

"JOHN HUMPHREY, of Llanwddyn, gent," purchased 312-1/2 acres of the Lloyd & Davies land [in Pennsylvania], by deed dated 24 April, 1683, and witnessed by Thomas Lloyd, Richard Davies, Richard Owen, Amos Davies, Rowland Ellis, David Davies, and Solomon Jones. By deed dated 1. 7mo. 1697, John conveyed 100 acres of this tract to his nephew, Joshua Owen, and by will bequeathed the balance to his nephew, Benjamin Humphrey. He married his cousin, Jane Humphrey (sister to Richard Humphrey, aforesaid).

In 1698-9, John Humphrey was one of the attorneys for Richard Davies, one of the purchasers of Welsh Tract land. His will, signed 22. 7mo. 1699, witnessed by John Rob erts and David Llewellyn, was proved at Philadelphia 31 Aug. 1700. He named as executors his nephew, Benjamin Humphrey, his wife Mary, and son John; named friends Rowland Ellis , Sr., and his daughter Jane, Joshua Owen, John Owen, John Robert's children, Robert Owen's son John; cousin Tabitha, Ann, and Joseph Humphrey.

He said, "I give and bequeathe Ł10 towards putting in the Press the Testimony of the Twelve Patriarchs, in the Welsh tongue, if conveniences can be had for the same in these America pts." Otherwise, he desired this oney should be used for the charities of the Haverford Monthly Meeting. This English work, which was to be a reprint in Welsh, was probably never so printed...

John Humphrey, "of Llwundu," and his wife, Joan, brought their certificate, filed with the Haverford, or Radnor Monthly Meeting, from the Quarterly Heeting at Dolyserrey, dated 27. 5mo. 1683, signed by Robert Humphrey and Richard Owen, Griffith and Owen Lewis, John Evans, Hugh Reese, Amos Davies, William Thomas, William, Evan and Rowland Ellis, Ellis Morris, Evan Harry, and Evan Rees.

Research Notes: Child - Captain Richard Owings "the Settler"

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 Ł40. 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 Ł15.03.04.[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.

OWINGS
Richard Owings, born c 1662 in Wales, died intestate 1716 in Baltimore County., is placed as the 4th son of Owen ap Humphrey of Llwyn-du Co., Merionethshire, Wales. He marrried 1682 Rachel ap Robert, daughter of Robert ap Pugh of Llywn-dedwydd. They settled first in the Welsh Tract in Pennsylvania and before 1688 in Anne Arundel County. His widow Rachel Owings died testate 1729 in Baltimore County. From "Maryland Genealogies, A Consolidation of Articles from the Maryland Historical Magazine", page 133.

John and Samuel were sons of Humphrey ap Hugh, of Llwyngrill (1662), and "late of Llwyn du," in Merioneth, d. about 1664-5, by his wife, Elizabeth Powel, daughter of John ap Howel (or Powel, who was buried in the parish church of Llanwddyn, in Montgomeryshire, 24 July, 1636), and his wife, Sibill v. Hugh Gwyn, of Penarth.

They were uncles of Rowland Ellis, of "Bryn Mawr," Merion [Pennsylvania], (whose land adjoined Benjamin Humphrey's land), and also of Robert Owen's wife, Rebecca, (whose farm lay to the eastward on both sides of Montgomery avenue, between Ardmore and Wynnewood), and of John Owen and Josehua Owen, of Merion (1683), (whose property adjoined that of Humphrey), and of Elizabeth, wife of "John Roberts, of the Mill," and "of Wayn Mill," who came from Pen y Chyd, in Denbighshire (whose estate was northward of Humphrey). They were brothers to Owen Humphrey, of Llwyn du, 1625-1695, a J. P. in Merioneth, and a prominent Friend, who was the father of Rebecca, wife of Robert Owen, of Merion, and Elizabeth, wife of John Roberts, aforesaid.

SAMUEL HUMPHREY,... died in Wales. He was married to Elizabeth Rees, on 20. 2mo. 1658, by Morris Wynne and Robert Owen, both justices of the peace, by Friends' ceremony, and it is believed that this was the first marriage of this kind. They had 8 children. His relict and children removed to Haverford.

From the book Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry, Edited by Thomas Allen Glenn at the request of Howard Reifsnyder, privately printed, Philadelphia, 1902, provided by http://books.google.com

Footnote 4, p. 48:
"Samuel Humphrey, a celebrated Quaker, died in Merionethshire, but his widow, Elizabeth, daughter of Rees Hugh, with their children, removed to Pennsylvania, 1683. The children of Samuel Humphrey took the surname of 'Humphreys,' which they have since retained. From Samuel Humphrey descended Joshua Humphreys, Naval Constructor, called the Father of the American Navy, and the late General Humphreys, of Pennsylvania, distinguished in the War of the Rebellion, and whose son is now an officer in the United States Army."
