    • Baptised: 30 Dec 1602, St. Edmund's, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England

    Notes:

    One of TWK's eleven "gateway ancestors."

    "Because in all probability no other seventeenth-century English emigrant to America had so many close kinsmen of high rank as Anne possessed, they are partially listed here, at the risk of repetition. Through her great-aunt Bridget Baynton, Anne was the second cousin of the Countess of Suffolk, the Countess of Lincoln and the Countess of Rutland, and the second cousin, once removed, of the Duchess of Buckingham. Through her great-grandfather Sir William Cavendish, she was a great-niece of the Earl of Devonshire, the Countess of Shrewsbury and the Countess of Lennox, and the first cousin, once removed, of Lady Arabella Stuart, the Duke of Newcastle and the Earl of Kingston-upon-Hull. This constitutes an outstanding example of the fluidity of English society, a fluidity which would have been almost impossible in the caste systems of the European continent." [Walter Goodwin Davis, citation details below.]

    Davis is probably right that "no other seventeenth-century English emigrant to America had so many close kinsmen of high rank as Anne possessed", although Mary Launce (ancestor of AP) was probably competitive. Meanwhile, gateway ancestor Elizabeth St. John (ancestor of JTS) was probably the emigrant most closely related to contemporary English royalty, being a half fifth cousin once removed to Charles I. Anne Baynton was a sixth cousin once removed to that particular monarch, through common ancestors Richard Wydevill and Joan Bittlesgate.

    "In 1664 [...] Anne, wrote Lord Clarendon in England requesting help restoring a wine license formerly granted to her father." [Royal Ancestry, citation details below]
