    Notes:

    One of JTS's eleven proven "gateway ancestors."

    She was a brave woman. "At Boston, 16 Sept. 1658 the hangman cut off the right ear of Katherine Scott's future son-in-law Christopher Holder (who came from England two years before) for the crime of being a Quaker. Remonstrating against this barbarity, she was thrown into prison and later publicly flogged 'ten cruel stripes with a three-fold corded knotted whip.'" [Collected Papers: Armorial, Genealogical, Historical, citation details below.]

    She appears to have returned very briefly to England in 1659-60.

    Katherine married Richard Scott on 7 Jun 1632 in Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, England. Richard (son of Edward Scott and Sarah Carter) was born before 9 Sep 1605 in Glemsford, Suffolk, England; died between 1679 and 1680 in Providence, Rhode Island. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    From "The Well-Beloved Mother-in-law of Robert Marbury" by F. N. Craig, citation details below:

    In the funeral of Henry VII in 1509, [Robert Marbury] was a yeoman to the King's Grandame (that is, Henry VII's grandmother, Lady Margaret Beaufort, wife successively of Edmund Tudor, Earl of Richmond; Sir Henry Stafford; and Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby). In 1510, as yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, he had a grant to be feodary [i.e., one who holds land of an overlord on condition of homage] of the duchy of Exeter within county Devon, during [the king's] pleasure. In 1513, as Robert Marbury Jr. he was a feofee, along with Robert Marbury Sr. [his uncle], John Lenton [father of his son's future wife] and John Marbury, clerk. In 1514, his cousin William Blount, Lord Mountjoy, was the Queen's Chamberlain. In the same year, Robert Marbury, yeoman usher of the Queen's Chamber, was feodary noted above, for life. In 1517, he was appointed to be serjeant at arms, with 12d. a day in consideration of his services to Queen Catherine. In 1526, his yearly wage as serjeant at arms in the Royal Household was £18 5s, i.e., still 12d. a day.

    In the Lincolnshire Rebellion of October 1536, Robert Marbury appears as follows: In the examination of Sir Edward Madeson before the King's Council, Madeson, with his brother John Madeson and both his sons, then went up into Castrefeld to see the number of rebellious and there met Sir Wm. Askew and Marbery the serjeant and one Bonctcene of the Exchequer. The rebels took them all except Boneteync and Marbury. (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:225-26, no. 568.)

    In a letter from Sir Robert Kyrkham to Richard Cromwell:

    "Yesterday night late" he was at Stanforde with Sir William Parre and others when Marbery and Madyson, the King's servants came in, having escaped from the rebels who they say are 20,000... (Let. & Pap. Hen. VIII, 11:248, no. 619).

    Robert married Katherine Williamson. Katherine (daughter of John Williamson and Jane Angevine) was born about 1508; died on 11 Aug 1525. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 9.  Katherine Williamson was born about 1508 (daughter of John Williamson and Jane Angevine); died on 11 Aug 1525.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate death: 17 Aug 1525

    Children:

  3. 10.  John Lenton was born in in of Aldwinkle, Northamptonshire, England.

    Notes:

    Notwithstanding the claim made in several online sources, the John Lenton who was father to William Marbury's wife Agnes was not the John Lenton who married Elizabeth Shepherd. That latter marriage, as shown by Walter Goodwin Davis in "Shepherd of Littlecote" (New England Historical and Genealogical Register 118:251, Oct 1964), took place on 18 May 1585, making it obvious it was a later John Lenton that married this Elizabeth.

  4. 12.  David Dryden was born in in of Staffle Hill, Walton, Cumberland, England (son of William Dryden); died after 1540.
