11 "At the opening of the great Welsh uprising in 1136, she led an attack on the Norman fortress of Kidwelly, in her husband's absence, and was killed fighting outside the town, at a spot still known as Maes Gwenllian."

12 "David I was driven by a clear and consistent vision, pious and authoritarian, of what his kingdom should be: Catholic, in the sense of conforming to the doctrines and observances of the western church; feudal, in the sense that a lord–vassal relationship, involving knight-service, should form the basis of government; and open, in the sense that external (especially continental) influences of all kinds, religious, military, and economic, were encouraged and exploited to strengthen the Scottish kingdom. Alongside his eclecticism, David's strong sense of the autonomy of his realm and of his own position within it must be acknowledged. The surviving numbers of his charters, compared with those of his predecessors, surely point to an increase in the sophistication, and probably also in the activity, of government. During David's reign the administration of royal justice became more firmly established and was organized more effectively. Those who enjoyed their own courts were told that the king would intervene if they failed to provide justice. The addresses of royal charters and writs (Scottish 'brieves') show that from c.1140 justiciars were appointed. Although none is known by name, these officers were clearly the predecessors of the named justiciars of succeeding reigns." [Oxford Dictionary of National BiographyDavid I King of Scotland (I6369)
 
13 "Katherine's husband's second marriage, to Anne Hyde of Urmston, took place at Stockport on 5 August 1602, though the union was less characterized by puritan self-discipline than might be expected. Their son, Nehemiah, was renowned for his drunkenness and fought on the royalist side in the civil war." [Oxford Dictionary of National BiographyBrettergh, William (I15975)
 
14 "'Alexander Carpenter of Wrington' was on 16 December 1600 witness at the Amsterdam marriage of 'Antoine Fetcher' and 'Jenneken Richeman'. He was at Leiden by 1611. In a letter of 19 August 1644 or 1646 to Mary Carpenter of Wrington, sister of his wife Alice (Carpenter) (Southworth) Bradford, William Bradford noted that the mother of the Carpenter sisters had recently died, and invited Mary to join them in Plymouth, which she soon did." [Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration Begins, citation details below, p. 314]

Note that Mary Lovering Holman's 1919 Scott Genealogy, which Anderson cites as the best treatment of Alexander Carpenter, misdates William Bradford's aforementioned letter to Mary Carpenter, and thus implicitly Mary Carpenter's emigration, saying that Bradford's letter was written and sent in 1664, which would be seven years after Bradford's death. This error probably came from a too-hasty reading of the original article in which Bradford's letter was published, Frederic Kidder's "Letter of Mary Carpenter", The New England Historical and Genealogical Register 14:195, July 1860. Kidder was working from a copy of Bradford's letter made "a long time previous", and transcribes the letter's date as "August 19, 1664", but in a footnote he says "This is so in the copy, but it must be an error; probably the original read 1644 or 1646, as there is internal evidence that the letter was written around that time."

Also note that William Bradford's letter of 1644 or 1646 says that, Mary Carpenter's mother having recently died, Mary is "in a solitary condition." From which it seems evident that Alexander Carpenter had died earlier.

17 "...[T]here is no proved descent from any member of the Merovingian dynasty to any later medieval or modern person. They were subjected to the triple historical indignities of usurpation by the Carolingian Pippin, damnatio memoriae in the Carolingian accounts of that usurpation (such as Einhard's Vita Karoli magni), and finally the broad early-medieval problem of the scarcity of written records. The result is that a large and many-branched family appears to peter out in the historical record. The most accessible careful prosopography of this family is Christian Settipani's book, La préhistoire des Capétiens, Nouvelle histoire généalogique de l'auguste maison de France, gen. ed. Patrick Van Kerrebrouck, vol. 1 part 1 (Villeneuve d'Asq: Patrick Van Kerrebrouck, 1993). With detailed and thorough citations to both primary sources and the interpretive secondary literature, Settipani summarizes each (if not all) of the commonly claimed gateways from the Merovingian dynasty. The assertion that Bertrada, founder of the abbey of Prüm, was of Merovingian royal blood, is not implausible but it was a suggestion, first made by Maurice Chaume, based essentially on onomastics (the fact that members of her family appear to have used names also found in the royal dynasty)."

18 "1310. Feb 28. Westminster. License to John de Merkyngfeld, king's clerk, to crenellate his dwelling house at Merkyngfekd, co. York." [Calendar of the Patent Rolls 1307-1313]

"Sir John was a dignitary of the Church, and also the holder of a high office under the Crown, being Prebendary of Wartill and Studley, in the church of Ripon, as well as rector of Escrick. He was the most distinguished of the name of Markenfield. About the year 1310 he obtained from King Edward II licence to crenelate his house at Markenfield, and the present mansion dates from that time. He was also appointed by the same King, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and was much employed in affairs of State. He was executor of William de Hamilton, Dean of York and Lord Chancellor of England, with whom he had a long and intimate friendship. Toward the close of his life he got into trouble, and was excommunicated on account of mal-administration of the trusts of the above-mentioned will." [Yorkshire Anecdotes, citation details below.]

Pardon to Thomas, son of Thomas de Merkyngfeld, knight, imprisoned in the gaol of the late queen Anne's castle of Richmond, for the death of Peter Fraunke of Eryom, as it appears by the record of John Woderove and the other justices of gaol-delivery that he killed him in self-defence."

21 "Aulay (a name which is very variously spelt), named in 1217, who had grants of the lands of Faslane, and of Roseneath, Gleufruin, and others on the Gareloch, from his brother Earl Maldouen, confirmed by King Alexander II. 31 May 1226. He made liberal grants to the Abbey of Paisley, especially a large range of net fishing in the Gareloch, reserving to himself every fourth salmon taken.

23 "COCKING was held of Edward the Confessor by Azor, and in 1086 it was held of Earl Roger by Robert (son of Tetbald), as 12 hides, of which ½ hide was held by Turald. There were 5 mills, and there was one haw in Chichester attached to the manor. Robert's estates constituted the honor of Petworth, later acquired by the family of Percy, and Cocking was held of that honor. In 1187 when the honors of Arundel and Petworth were in the king's hands, Cocking was tallaged among other royal demesnes at 2 marks. In 1195, shortly after Henry de Percy had recovered the honor of Petworth, Brian fitz Ralph disputed his right to the honor, which he himself claimed in right of his wife Gunnor, who was great-granddaughter of Aveline, heiress and probably granddaughter of Robert son of Tetbald. Eventually Brian and Gunnor remitted to Henry de Percy their rights in the honor but retained the whole of the vill of Cocking (except 2 virgates which Henry de Hesset held as appurtenant to ½ knight's fee in Heyshott), with Linchmere and 2 1/20 fees in Selham (and Minstead). It was arranged that these fees should be held of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who should hold of Percy, and this arrangement still held good in 1314."

29 "The Visitation of the North dated c. 1480-1490 identifies Christian, second wife of Sir William de Plumpton, as 'filia Mowbray,' that is, 'daughter of Mowbray,' but does not record the given name of her father [see Harvey et. al. Vis. of the North 3 (Surtees Soc. 144) (1930): 82-84 (Plumpton ped.)]. Supporting contemporary evidence of Christian's family name is provided by an entry in the Close Rolls dated 12 Dec. 1333 which indicates that Chistian, then widow of Richard de Emelden, appointed John de Moubray "her brother" and Henry de Haydok, clerk, to set her dower [see C.C.R. 1333-1337 (1898): 185, citation courtesy of Paul M.

Sources differ over whether he died in exile. He appears to have been among the Parisian experts consulted in 1292 by a representative of Edward I on the question of the Scottish succession.

58 "A. E. Packe finds considerable variation in engraving and workmanship of the coins of the first three Norman kings, and suggests that the good coins were made with dies sent out from London and that some good and many bad coins came from dies made in the local mints. Die engraving was part of the 'mystery' of the goldsmiths. Packe finds a German influence in English die engraving and thinks that Otto was of German extraction. He notes that the moneyers were a distinct class from the die engravers. [...] In 1086, as recorded in Domesday Book, Otto the goldsmith (aurifaber) held the manor of Gestingthorpe in Essex in chief of the king. [...] After the death of William the Conqueror at Rouen on 9 Sept. 1087, his body was buried at Caen in the church of St. Stephen. William Rufus instructed Otto to erect a tomb over his father as a splendid memorial. Otto obeyed the king's orders and completed a tomb shining with gold and silver and precious style. The memorial survived without molestation until 1522, when the tomb was opened on instructions from Rome, and the body, after examination, was reinterred. But in 1562, the tomb was completely destroyed by the Calvinists, and the remains, except for one thigh bone, were scattered and lost." [F. N. Craig, "Descent from a Domesday Goldsmith."

60 "Abiah's identity has long puzzled researchers. Mrs. Barclay eliminated many possible Abiahs from surrounding towns and concluded, after reading deeds and court records of the Ford family, their associates and relatives, that she was probably Abia Pierce, daughter of Capt. Michael Pierce of Hingham and Scituate and his first wife Persis Eames. In the families associated with the Fords the only 'Abia' was in the Pierce family. There is no proof of what became of Abia Pierce, who was living at the time of her father's will, 15 Jan. 1675, and was of the right age to have been the wife of Andrew Ford. She is mentioned twice in the Plymouth records, first in the will of a neighbor, Esther Woodfield, 27 May 1672, secondly in her father's will when she was still unmarried. Andrew Ford's daughter Abia, who married James Bearse, named a son Miall, possibly after her grandfather, Capt. Michael Pierce."

64 "Abraham Shaw, a clothier, came from Northowram, Halifax, Yorkshire, Eng., in the Anne, 1636, to Watertown, Mass. In Oct. 1636, his house and all his goods were burned and he removed to Dedham, where he had twelve acres and was called a planter. In Feb. 1637, he was granted 60 acres and the right to build a corn mill, and was one of the men appointed to govern the town. Freeman, 1637; constable, 1638. He married in Halifax, Eng., June 24, 1616, Bridget Best, who was bapt. Ovenden, Halifax, Eng., Apr. 9, 1592, daughter of Henry Best. Names of their children are from the church records of Halifax, Eng. He probably died in 1638, as his will was proved late in that year. It mentions his oldest son Joseph, dau. Mary, and calls John and Martha infants. His wife had died earlier." [Bassett-Preston Ancestors, citation details below]

H. Minot Pitman's article "Abraham Shaw of Dedham," in the New England Historical and Genealogical Register, 106:50, January 1952, set forth evidence that this Abraham Shaw was the Abraham Shaw born out of wedlock to Abraham Dobson and Jenet Shaw. But M. L. Bierbrier's "The Origin of Abraham Shaw of Dedham" in The American Genealogist 57:85, 1981, documents an entirely different and much more plausible Halifax origin for the husband of Bridget Best, a man who clearly owned land (and at least one coal mine!) in Halifax and elsewhere. It may be that the union discussed in Pitman's article produced the different Abraham Shaw who was alive in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1641.

Bierbrier's model is further proved in Russell Franklin Shaw's article "The English Ancestry of Abraham Shaw of Dedham, Massachusetts, 1590-1638", which appeared in The Genealogist 10:86, Spring 1989 (actually published 1994). Russell Franklin Shaw brings to bear a mass of evidence viewed in situ in Halifax, Yorkshire, much of it from registers and legal documents that have yet to be transcribed and made public.

66 "According to the Candler Manuscript in the British Museum, George Moody was 'famous for his housekeeping & honest & plain dealing.' By his will of 5 Aug. 1607, he left Fryettes to his eldest son, George, with 'sixscore acres of arable land.' He made his son-in-law, Thomas Kilborne, residuary legatee and executor, and gave him in trust for eleven years (with remainder to testator's son George) various lands and tenements. Out of the profits of the eleven years, Kilbourne was to pay £200 to Moody's son Samuel, £200 to his son John, £100 to his eldest daughter Elizabeth, and 100 marks each to his other daughters, Sara, Margaret, Anne, and Mary.

From the memoir of Chrisman Harrison Parker:

"I have heard my grandfather tell how the Torys came and robed his mother while that war was going on; - They come one day; and robed the house; - taking the bedding; emtying the feather-beds or ticks over the ground. The feathers come of them rising above the tops of the trees. They then went into the feild and striped the harness off the horse granfather was plowing, and led Him away. - By this time they had gathered the sheep and cattle; - and horses and drove them away. Lleving my great grandmother and her children destitute - undaunted she geathered leaves to sleep on; living as best she could. Clothed her children and cotten and Flaxe, garments of her own make; - The next morning after the robery; she geathered her children and all the hoes and went into the feild. Those who had hoes howed those who had none pulled weeds and grass: - at last the war ceased, and great grandfather come home, and settled down to honest toil. Where he lived and died.

"My granfather grew up in in North Carolina, and maired there, and when my father was three years olde mooved to Tennsee: where he raised his family. In the War of 1812. Granfather Parker, entered the servis of his country and was at Battle of New Orleans when Pakenham was killed.

"My mother, - Celety - Harrison, Parker lost two brothers in the War of 1812. I have heard my mother say grandmother Harrison kept the clothing of her two lost sons as long as she lived; and once a year would look them over; and weep as she folded them up and laid them carfully away."

73 "Admitted an inhabitant of Newport" 1638.

From Wikipedia:

George Gardiner, sometimes spelled Gardner, was an early inhabitant of Newport in the Colony of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations, and one of the original settlers of Aquidneck Island. He held some minor offices within the colony in the early 1640s, shortly after which he began a common-law marriage with Herodias (Long) Hicks, who came to live with him after separating from her first husband. This relationship lasted for nearly 20 years, after which Herodias petitioned the court to have Gardiner leave her alone, and she left Newport to go west of the Narragansett Bay and live with John Porter, a land-rich settler who was one of the original purchasers of the Pettaquamscutt lands (later South Kingstown, Rhode Island).

Gardiner apparently had seven children with Herodias, and after her departure, five more with subsequent wife Lydia Ballou. His family produced a large number of descendants. A grandson, John Gardner served as Deputy Governor of the Rhode Island colony.

He held a minor town office in 1648 and 1649. After his removal to Northampton he was granted land there until he finally owned a considerable acreage. In 1658 he contributed toward the settling of the Rev. Mr. Mather, as the minister. With three others he built a gristmill in 1659 but sold his share in 1661, and in that same year he signed the church covenant. He also owned part of a lead mine. He lent his financial aid to Harvard College in 1672-3. In 1690 a fatal fever prevailed in the River towns, and eleven of the original settlers were its victims and among them was Alexander Edwards."

77 "Alexios Charon was a Byzantine official in southern Italy and the maternal grandfather of Emperor Alexios I Komnenos (reigned 1081–1118), the founder of the Komnenian dynasty. Very little is known about his life. His is only recorded in the history of Nikephoros Bryennios the Younger, who married his great-granddaughter Anna Komnene. Bryennios reports that 'Charon' was a sobriquet given to him for his bravery, referring to the ferryman of the underworld in Greek mythology, but the name is attested as an actual surname as well. On Alexios' career, Bryennios only reports that he 'handled the emperor's affairs' in the Byzantine provinces of southern Italy (the Catepanate of Italy) some time in the first half of the 11th century. The exact office that Alexios held is unknown; it has been suggested that he may have been the governor (catepan) of Italy, but his name appears in no other source."

Inheriting a collapsing empire and faced with constant warfare during his reign against both the Seljuq Turks in Asia Minor and the Normans in the western Balkans, Alexios was able to halt the Byzantine decline and begin the military, financial, and territorial recovery known as the Komnenian restoration. The basis for this recovery were various reforms initiated by Alexios. His appeals to Western Europe for help against the Turks were also the catalyst that likely contributed to the convoking of the Crusades."

83 "Although she is usually called Matilda, she was born with the name Eadgyth (Edith), as Orderic Vitalis notes." [The Henry Project]

From the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

Reared at Romsey Abbey in Hampshire but never having taken religious vows, Matilda was the orphaned daughter of Malcolm III (Canmore), king of Scots (d. 1093), and his celebrated queen, the saintly Margaret (d. 1093), and, through Margaret, a direct descendant of Edmund Ironside and the West Saxon kings. Matilda's marriage to Henry would thus have pleased both Scots and Anglo-Saxons. More importantly, however, it reinforced Henry's claim to the throne by providing his children with a direct hereditary link to the old English royal line. The blood of both Alfred and William the Conqueror would flow through them. By an odd chain of circumstances, Matilda was also the god-daughter of Henry's brother, Duke Robert Curthose. [...]

She became a widely admired queen, presiding competently as regent over England during Henry's frequent sojourns in Normandy and, through her patronage, making the English royal court a centre for writers and musicians. She commissioned the writing of a history of England by the monks of Malmesbury Abbey, for example, and thus became a benefactor of the great historian William of Malmesbury. She may also have given her patronage to the unknown writer who produced the first major poem to be written in Anglo-Norman French, the Voyage of St Brendan. Moreover, as a spiritual disciple of Anselm, Matilda used her close relationships with both the archbishop and her royal husband to intervene with some effect in the complex negotiations over lay investiture. The impression conveyed by her letters is that while her love of Anselm was deep and genuine, it was exceeded by her devotion to her husband and his policies.

"He went to Gascony during the campaigns of 1295-6, during which time he committed his lands to the custody of his great uncle, Oliver de Sutton, Bishop of Lincoln. [...] In 1308 he released to the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln the services they owed him from lands in Allerton (in Edwinstow), Nottinghamshire, out of regard for Oliver Sutton, late Bishop of London, of blessed memory, of whose consanguinity he is, and to Oliver de Sutton, uncle of the same Richard, both canons of Lincoln." [Royal Ancestry -- in other words, Mirror in Parchment is in slight error; the bishop was his great-uncle, not his uncle.

96 "Another family resident near Nottingham, the Pierpoints, present a similar picture of stagnation. They came originally from Pierrepont, near Grandcourt in Picardy, and settled at Hurstpierpoint in Sussex soon after the Conquest; but it was not until the marriage, in the second half of the thirteenth century, of Sir Henry Pierpoint (steward of the castle of Knaresborough which belonged to Edmund of Almaine (d. 1300), earl of Cornwall) to Annora, daughter and eventual heiress of Sir Michael Manvers (d. 1255) of Holme Pierrepont, that a branch of the family became major Nottinghamshire landholders. In addition to the valuable manor of Holme (subsequently known as Holme Pierrepont), she brought to Sir Henry the south Yorkshire manor of Anston, and the couple also made several purchases: from Sir Ralph Salvayn, the manor of Holbeck Woodhouse in north-west Nottinghamshire; from Sir Richard Weston, the manor of Weston near Tuxford; and from Sir Robert Tibetot, the manor of Sneinton near Nottingham. They made further acquisitions at Ashover in Derbyshire and Langford near Newark. Their son, Sir Robert (d. 1334), a notable soldier and keeper of Newark Castle, added a manor at Rolleston, also near Newark, granted to him by his father-in-law, Sir John Heriz (d. 1299), in free marriage. Thereafter, it was not until c. 1469, when Sir Henry Pierpoint (d. 1499) finally acquired the manors of Gonalston, Widmerpool, and Tibshelf, once of Sir John Heriz and over which Sir Henry's grandfather, Sir Henry (d. 1452), had been in dispute with Ralph (d. 1456), Lord Cromwell, that any significant addition was made to the very considerable estates the family held at the end of the thirteenth century, and it was not until the marriage in 1601 of Robert Pierpoint (1584 - 1643), later first earl of Kingston-upon-Hull, that the family again married an heiress."

111 "Barbara Phelps (later Allen) arrived in Mesa in 1879 and a 16-month-old infant. At age 12, she received an accordion for Christmas. She then earned money by playing with her father, Hyrum Phelps, for dances in Lehi, especially at Christmas. In later life, she organized the Granny Band, which performed at events around town."

A memoir by Barbara Ann Phelps Allen:

My parents were Hyrum Smith Phelps and Mary Elizabeth Bingham Phelps. I was born August 26, 1877 at Montpelier, Bear Lake County, Idaho. I was just sixteen months old when the family reached Mesa. The first house Father built was on the east side of Hibbert Street between 1st and 2nd Avenues.

Among my first recollections of this place was the first Sunday School I attended, It was held in the school house, a one-room adobe. Hannah Peterson (Miller) was the teacher. We recited the alphabet from cards. We were seated on a low bench in front of the room. I attended my first Primary with my sister Lucy. We were very devoted to each other. One never went without the other. Each week we listened anxiously while the secretary read the program for the following week, but we were never on it.

When I was nine years old, the school put on a program and every child in the room was given a part but me, I felt disgraced, and I never even told my mother. I always remembered the feeling I had and in the sixteen years I presided over the Primary I always favored the backward child and never slighted anyone to my knowledge.

Father built a long room on the back of the house to accommodate the growing family. Grandma Bingham lived with us awhile before moving into a house on Broadway just east of Mesa Drive. We children were staying with her after Father was taken to Yuma to the penitentiary. The officers came there one night looking for Mother; they had a warrant, and Grandma wouldn't take it, so they threw it on the floor. I thought she wasn't very polite.

When I was twelve years old, Mother gave me an accordion for Christmas. I soon learned to play it. A few years later, she and Lucy gave me a larger one which I kept until after I was married.

One time Father went to Tempe and bought a bolt of cloth called Zephyr gingham; it was a beautiful plaid. As I remember, five of us girls had dresses alike. Lucy and I always dressed alike. Most people thought we were twins. The first M.I.A. I attended had only one class for everyone. Pres. Charles I. Robson told the story of Joseph Smith's first prayer. That was the first time I had heard it, and I have never forgotten how it impressed me.

Soon after this Lucy and I were asked to sing at one of the meetings. We sang, "Write Me a Letter from Home.' After that I think we were asked to sing at every public entertainment held in Mesa until after I was married. Lucy and Grandma Phelps bought us an organ which I learned to play by ear. Father and I played for the dances at Lehi a few times. I earned $2.50 over the Christmas holidays playing out there. I left my organ there during that time so I wouldn't have to carry it back and forth. Lucy and I joined the choir when I was sixteen, and I sang with them for twenty years. I memorized 200 hymns besides the anthems we sang.

I well remember the first dress I made; it was a real pretty blue and I wore a blue ribbon around my waist. Mother's sister, Anner LeSueur sent me the ribbon because they told her I looked so much like her. In the summer of about 1891 there was a conference held at Pinetop, and Mother and Aunt Clarinda in company with quite a large group of saints, attended. Brother William took them. It took six weeks to make the round trip. Amy was about four years old. While they were gone, I made Amy a dress. I made it a plain tight waist with a full skirt that came nearly to her ankles, and it was so tight I could hardly fasten it. She had it on when mother came and when mother saw her she began to cry, and she said Amy looked like we had starved her. One night at a dance, John S. Allen, known as Seymour, came into our lives. He rushed across the floor, came up to me and said, "Come on , Caddie, let's dance." Then he saw his mistake, and after an apology, asked me to dance. From then on he never failed to dance with Lucy and me. Later on he began making regular visits to our home, but we did not know which of us he was most interested in. We had a lot of good times together. One night he asked if he could take me home. Up to this time he had never taken us any place. He had a lady friend and we were just side issues, but after this night we knew which was his favorite.

John S. and I kept company for about nine months and were married on Oct. 2, 1895. We had a quiet wedding at our home on the corner of Hibbert and East First Avenue. Only close relatives were invited. The ceremony was performed by Bishop James Malen Home. We stood at the head of the table, and the guests were seated around it, ready to partake as soon as the ceremony ended. Mother and Lucy had cooked a very fine dinner. When we went through the kitchen to be married, Mother and Lucy were standing by the stove. Mother was crying and Lucy looked sad, but I couldn't see anything to feel sad about. One week after we were married, we started in company with Eli and Medora Openshaw for the St. George Temple. It took six weeks to make the round trip.

When we returned home we started housekeeping in a two-rooms of the house built for Warner and Fannie Allen. It was here our first child, Charles Ashael, was born July 31, 1896. At this time the monthly fast meeting was held on the first Thursday of the month, and he was blessed by Grandpa [Charles H.] Allen.

We moved into a 2-room lumber house with a lean-to on the back that Father had built on 20 acres Grandpa Allen had given Seymour at the corner of Broadway and Stapley. On Feb. 15, 1898, Blanche was born. When she was four months old, J. S. was called on a mission to the Southern States. He left in June and I milked eight to ten cows while he was gone. Esther stayed with me and cared for the babies all the time. Mother was very good to me. I used to wonder how I could get along without her. I did all the sewing for the six girls, Lucy, Hattie, Amy, Esther, Clara, and Gertrude. At this time Lucy was working in Johnson's store and did a lot to help the family.

I was blessed while J. S. was gone. We all enjoyed good health. When it was time for him to be released, I went to Utah in company with my parents, Father Allen and his wife, Annie. Uncle Perry Bingham met us at Price, Utah and took us to Vernal where I stayed until I heard from John S., then I went on to meet him in Cove, Utah. After we returned home, Seymour and Warner went into partners and bought eighty acres on Baseline. Hyrum Loren was born Oct. 7, 1901 and Barbara Oct. 5, 1903.

John R. was born Oct. 29, 1905 and was just a few months old when Seymour sold the 20 acres and bought 60 acres two miles east of Mesa on the Apache Trail from Mr. Lamb. This was where Gove Liahona was born July 26, 1907. Then John Seymour was called on another mission, this time to the Eastern States. President Ben Rich was his mission president both times. I was left this time with more work and more responsibilities. Ashael was a big help to me. One of my sisters stayed with me most of the time and helped.

J. S. came off his mission June 1909, and Mary was born Sept. 1,1910. On March 27, 1912, Eldred Phelps was born, but lived only six weeks. This was the first real sorrow to come to us. July 8, 1914 Russell Hoopes was born. In the Summer of 1915, we moved to a 320 acre ranch four miles south of Gilbert.

Seymour had gone into partners with his older brother Warner and acquired a 320-acre farm four miles south of Gilbert. This was entirely alfalfa at the time but was later planted to cotton.

December 2, 1915 Ashael left for a mission to the Southern States and June 5, 1916 Ben Rich Allen was born, and November 5, 1917, Joseph Seymour was born. Two babies were born while Ashael was away.

When Joe was about eight months old, I took a little motherless baby, Robert Southers, four months old, to raise. I kept him nine months, then his aunt, Mrs. Ellingbow, wanted him so badly that J. S. told me I shouldn't be selfish and keep him, so I let her have him.

After several years the depression came on and we decided J. S.'s brother, Benjamin, should live with us for a couple of years. J. S. sent him on a mission. Chancy, Seymour's older brother, lived with us a lot. October 11, 1920, Della, our twelfth and last child was born three days after Loren had left for a mission. He labored in Louisiana.

We struggled along for several years. The depression came on and we decided to rent. The boys wanted to finish school. As J. S. couldn't run the ranch alone, he decided to rent it out. We bought us a home in Mesa at 48 West Second Street and lived there for a year or more.

J. S. and his brother Jim took a job building a fence along the railroad. It was at this time that the next great sorrow came when Della died of mastoid infection Nov. 21, 1925.

We sent Gove on a mission to the Eastern States and in February 1935 we sent Russell to the Samoan Island to fill his mission. Before he returned home, we sent Ben in March 1938 to Argentina. All our family have very fine companions. We are very proud to have them to associate with. In all our family gatherings, they are with us one hundred percent. We are very proud of our family and their families, and always pray for their success in righteousness.

October 29, 1945, we held our Golden Wedding Anniversary, the first time all the family had been together for a long time. For the reception, Ashael came from the Spanish American Mission, Ida from Los Angeles, Russell from Kirtland, New Mexico, and Mary from Vallejo, California. We had a dinner at the ranch home. All ten of the family and twenty-seven of the grandchildren were present. We all had a lovely time. After this gathering Ida was called to labor with Ashael in the mission, taking George with them.

My mother was very strict about us attending our duties and being punctual. Because of this, the Sunday School Superintendent called me to be a substitute teacher when I was quite young. When I was seventeen I attended Conference and they reorganized the Stake Y.L.M.I.A. and I was surprised when they sustained me as secretary. I served in that capacity for twelve years underfive presidents, Ann Eliza Leavitt, Jannett Johnson, Lulu Macdonald, Fannie Dana and Mary Hibbert. Soon after I was released, I was chosen stake secretary for the Relief Society. I held that position for about six years. I was released to be president of the Mesa First Ward Relief Society. I served about a year and we moved to Gilbert. There was no Gilbert Ward then, and we were in the Chandler Ward. After this I served about sixteen years as president of the Primary for Chandler, Gilbert, and Mesa Wards. I was superintendent of Religion Class in Gilbert the same time I was President of the Primary. At this time John R. was attending high school in Gilbert and he assisted me with religion class.

We rented our ranch and bought us a home in Mesa, but stayed only a year or so. At this time I was president of the Primary in Gilbert and Bishop Haymore asked me to preside there until Barbara came home from vacation, and before she came I was made president of the Mesa First Ward Primary. I presided over both of them for about six weeks. I have been president of the Gilbert Relief Society two different times, second counselor to Grace Nielson and then president in the Mesa First Ward Relief Society, second counselor to Adelaide Peterson in the Stake Primary, and I held several other positions. Now at the age of seventy-four, I am a Relief Society district teacher and a Guide teacher of four boys in the Primary of the Mesa Ninth Ward. I am very thankful for the many opportunities I have had to serve.

March 1942 was the Centennial celebration of the Relief Society, and the General Board requested that pioneer stories be brought before the public as much as possible. I was president of the Gilbert Relief Society at that time. I read several good stories and decided to put them into a pageant. I had fine cooperation, and it turned out to be a success. We played it in six different wards. I also wrote two other pageants which were very successful, an Easter pageant and one on the restoration of the Aaronic Priesthood. In doing this work I received some of the greatest joy of my life. Another thing that I enjoyed a lot was putting on entertainments with the Primary children. I found a lot of work doing these things, but when it was all over, there was unspeakable joy that came to us seeing the happiness that came to the children.

The Lord has been good to me for which I am grateful. We have been relieved of pain through prayer and being administered to many times. My first relief came when I was first married. I had an ulcerated tooth which was so severe I didn't think I could stand it any longer. John S. administered to me and relief came instantly. Another time when I was alone on the ranch with the little children, I became very sick. My head pained so badly at times I wasn't conscious. John was nine years old. He went off by himself and prayed for me. All at once a quivering feeling went through my body and with it went the pain. I couldn't account for it until he told me he had prayed for me. John had been instantly relieved twice when his father administered to him when he had gathered ears.

One time when we had been helping the Chandler Ward top maize to pay off on their piano, we came home after dark and found Loren crying with pain. As he drove the cows around the haystack, they loosened the derrick fork and it swung around before he knew it, striking him on the leg and puncturing the bone. The pain was so severe he couldn't stand to have us walk across the floor. He immediately called for his father to administer to him, which he did, and the pain left as he took his hands off, and it never returned. For these and many more blessings too numerous to mention, I am grateful.

"It is interesting to note that each of her sons, Robert, Jr., Joseph, and Benjamin, named a son Benjamin. In the case of Joseph and Benjamin, at least, it would appear that they each named their first born son, Benjamin. Various naming conventions were used by different cultures in the South, but in Virginia, first born sons were most often named after a grandfather. (See Albion's Seed, Four British Folkways in America, by David Hackett Fischer.) So perhaps the father of Robert's wife was named Benjamin." [Culpepper Connections, (citation details below)]

114 "Basset, Alan (d. 1232), administrator, was one of the three sons (probably the youngest) of Thomas Basset (d. c. 1182). He founded the Bassets of Wycombe, and was a noted servant of Richard I, John, and Henry III. In 1197 Richard I sent him on a diplomatic mission with William (I) Marshal to the counts of Flanders and Boulogne to detach them from their allegiance to King Philip of France, and shortly afterwards, with his elder brother Thomas, he attested as surety for Richard in France concerning the king's treaty with the count of Flanders against Philip. Between 1197 and 1199 he witnessed six more of Richard's documents in France. Following Richard's death, he was soon in attendance upon John; Alan, Thomas, and Gilbert Basset were all described as barons when they witnessed the homage of the king of Scots to John at Lincoln on 22 November 1200. In 1202 and 1203 Alan witnessed ten of John's charters in France, and, between 1200 and 1215, twenty-five royal charters in England. Remaining loyal to John, he is often recorded in that king's service, and received such rewards as numerous quittances of scutage. In 1215 he was named in Magna Carta as one of the 'noblemen' whose counsel the king relied upon, and he was among the royalist barons who attended John at Runnymede. He appears to have accompanied John on his expedition to the north of England in the winter of 1215 - 16. He was in Henry III's service by 14 December 1216. In 1217 he fought at the battle of Lincoln, and helped to pacify the kingdom afterwards, and in 1220 he was one of three ambassadors sent to France to arrange a four-year truce. He was still in royal service in 1228, but died late in 1232." [Oxford Dictionary of National BiographyBasset, Alan (I6694)
 
115 "Basset, Thomas (d. c. 1182), justice, belonged to a distinguished family of royal servants which began with Ralph Basset (d. 1127?), the brother of Thomas's father, Gilbert (d. in or before 1154). Thomas Basset had entered Henry II's service by 1163. His first known post in the royal administration was as sheriff of Oxfordshire (1163 - 4). A baron of the exchequer from 1169 to c. 1181, he was an itinerant justice in the south and west in 1175, and again in 1179; in December 1180 he joined the justiciar Ranulf de Glanville and other royal justices at Lincoln in approving a final concord. He was custodian of the honour of Wallingford for the king from 1172 to 1179. He witnessed royal documents in England fourteen times between 1174 and 1179, and he was with the king in Normandy, c. 1181, attesting at Barfleur. He died shortly afterwards, perhaps in 1182."

118 "Benjamin D., son of Benjamin and Celia (Buffington) Wheeler, was born in Massachusetts, April 10, 1789, died September 30, 1818. He removed from his native state to New York state, settling in East Bloomfield, where he was a prominent citizen, advancing the interests of the community in which he resided. He married Deborah Reed, and they were the parents of five children, two sons and three daughters, Hannah R., Deborah, Celia B., Benjamin T., and Simeon R." [A History of Ontario County, New York, and Its People, citation details below.]

Albert Gallatin Wheeler's Genealogical and Encyclopedic History of the Wheeler Family in America gives Benjamin Daggett Wheeler as a son of Barnard Wheeler and Anna Goff. This is clearly a mistake:

* Benjamin Daggett Wheeler's tombstone clearly reads "son of Benjamin and Celia Wheeler."

* The mother of the Benjamin Wheeler who married Celia Buffington was named Hopestill Daggett.

* The first son named in the will, made 23 Jul 1832, of the Benjamin Wheeler who married Celia Buffington, is "Benjamin D."

119 "Benjamin Wheeler, progenitor of the branch of the family now under consideration, was a native of Massachusetts, his birth occurring February 7, 1764. In early manhood, in 1800, accompanied by his wife and children, he removed to New York state, settling on the farm now owned by his grandson, Simeon R. Wheeler, in East Bloomfield, Ontario county, and he also erected the first grist mill in South Bloomfield. He was active and public-spirited, served in the Revolutionary war, and in all ways performed his part faithfully and conscientiously. He married, July 28, 1782, Celia Buffington, born in Massachusetts, August 26, 1762, who bore him six sons and four daughters. Benjamin Wheeler died February 6, 1836." [A History of Ontario County, New York, and Its People, citation details below.]

His tombstone describes him as "PVT, Continental Line, Rev War".

"Benjamin Wheeler applied 1 September 1832 for a Revolutionary War pension and included in his application the family Bible record sheets which listed the names of his ten children with birth dates. Eight of these have been verified in the vital records of Rehoboth and Dighton, Massachusetts; the last two are unrecorded elsewhere. His pension was granted and later his widow, Celia, drew her allotment. He deposed that in the spring of 1777, age 13, he entered the service of his country as a substitute for his brother, Simeon. His first assignment was as a waiter in Capt. Simeon Cole's Co. of Rehoboth. Re-enlisting nine times, with terms of duty ranging from three to five months, he had attained the rank of fourth sergeant by the spring of 1781. His experiences included hospital service at New Windsor, Connecticut and Yorktown, Virginia; he was with the army at Yorktown and saw the capture of General Cornwallis (19 Oct. 1781); he saw General George Washington at Providence, West Point, and Yorktown. Mr. Elihu Morse and James Gladding, both of the town of Bristol, N. Y. attested to the truth of these statements." [Harriette M.

121 "Bess of Hardwick," later Countess of Shrewsbury.

From Wikipedia:

[A] notable figure of Elizabethan English society. By a series of well-made marriages, she rose to the highest levels of English nobility and became enormously wealthy. Bess was a shrewd business woman, increasing her assets with business interests including mines and glass making workshops.

She was married four times, firstly to Robert Barlow, who died aged about 14 or 15 on 24 December 1544; secondly to the courtier Sir William Cavendish; thirdly to Sir William St Loe; and lastly to George Talbot, 6th Earl of Shrewsbury, sometime keeper to the captive Mary, Queen of Scots. An accomplished needlewoman, Bess joined her husband's captive charge at Chatsworth House for extended periods in 1569, 1570, and 1571, during which time they worked together on the Oxburgh Hangings.

In 1601, Bess ordered an inventory of the household furnishings including textiles at her three properties at Chatsworth, Hardwick and Chelsea, which survives, and in her will she bequeathed these items to her heirs to be preserved in perpetuity. The 400-year-old collection, now known as the Hardwick Hall textiles, is the largest collection of tapestry, embroidery, canvaswork, and other textiles to have been preserved by a single private family. Bess is also well known for her building projects, the most famous of which are: Chatsworth, now the seat of the Dukes of Devonshire (whose family name is Cavendish as they descend from the children of her second marriage), and Hardwick Hall.

123 "Born in Mason County, KY, Richard was a young boy when his parents crossed the Ohio River into the Scioto Valley, where they would settle in what would be Pike County. Richard served in the War of 1812 from Ohio. He married in Pike County, at the age of 31, Elizabeth C. 'Betsy' Smith. She was 16, the daughter of Edward Smith and Nancy Waller Horsey. They would have 7 known sons. No daughters have been attributed to this family. It is thought that Richard and Betsy moved with the rest of the family to Tippecanoe Co., IN about 1835, but unlike the rest of the family they quickly moved on to Grundy Co., MO, for they are found there in the 1840 Census. Betsy's Smith family also moved to this same area. The first five sons were born in Ohio, and the last two in Indiana. Richard and Betsy lived in Grundy County for the rest of their lives. He died in 1857 at the age of 67, and Betsy in 1879 at the age of 74. Richard is buried in the Gee's Creek cemetery in Jefferson Township, Grundy Co., MO.

In 1140 Cadwaladr joined with his brother in complaining to Bishop Bernard of St David's about the election of Meurig to the see of Bangor, but by the beginning of the following year Cadwaladr had allied himself, quite possibly to strengthen his hand against Owain, with Ranulf (II), earl of Chester (d. 1153), leading a contingent of Welsh troops alongside the latter at the battle of Lincoln against King Stephen on 2 February 1141. Cadwaladr greatly angered Owain in 1143 on account of his apparent complicity in the murder of Anarawd ap Gruffudd ap Rhys, to whom Owain had planned to give his daughter in marriage, and as a result he was driven out of northern Ceredigion by Hywel ab Owain and also, apparently, from Anglesey, until restored after threatening Owain with a military force hired in Ireland. However, Cadwaladr's position in Gwynedd remained precarious. In 1147 he was driven out of Meirionydd by his nephews, Hywel and Cynan; in 1149 he transferred his portion of Ceredigion to his son, Cadfan, and in the following year Cadfan was seized, together with his land and castle of Llanrhystud, by Hywel ab Owain; and in 1152 he was expelled from his only remaining territory of Anglesey. Meanwhile the alliance with Ranulf continued, as is shown by charters of the late 1140s and early 1150s in which Cadwaladr witnesses as king of Wales ((rege Waliarum)) and king of north Wales ((rege Nortwaliarum)). These styles suggest that Ranulf encouraged his ally's regal ambitions in Gwynedd so as to make trouble for Owain, whose expansion into Tegeingl and Ystrad Alun by 1150 posed a threat to the earl's authority. By 1153 Cadwaladr had married Aliz de Clare, quite possibly to be identified with Adeliza, widow of Richard de Clare (d. 1136), the former Norman lord of Ceredigion, and thus Ranulf's sister; the marriage may have been intended to strengthen Cadwaladr's claims to Ceredigion, control of which passed to the sons of Gruffudd ap Rhys of Deheubarth by 1153. This was not his first marriage, however, for his son Cadfan was already an adult by 1149; indeed, the late medieval genealogical tract referred to above states that Cadwaladr had children with four women in all. The support given by Cadwaladr to the Angevin cause in Stephen's reign stood him in good stead after his expulsion from Gwynedd in 1152, for by 1155 or 1156 he had been granted the estate of Ness in Shropshire by Henry II, who ensured that he was restored to his lands in north Wales following the campaign of 1157 (in which Cadwaladr fought on Henry's side). These Angevin connections probably explain why Cadwaladr patronized the Augustinian abbey of Haughmond in Shropshire, to which, as early as the 1140s, he granted the church of Nefyn in Ll?n, for Haughmond (situated only 10 miles away from Ness) received benefactions from Ranulf of Chester and other Angevin supporters. After 1157 Cadwaladr remained loyal to Owain Gwynedd for the rest of the latter's reign. Together with his nephews Hywel and Cynan he took part in Reginald fitz Henry's expedition against Rhys ap Gruffudd in 1159, he participated in the campaign against Henry II in 1165, and he fought alongside his brother in the campaigns which led to the occupation of Tegeingl in 1167. Famed, according to Gerald of Wales, for his outstanding generosity, Cadwaladr outlived Owain by about fifteen months, and was buried beside his brother in Bangor Cathedral in 1172."

The Harmon's had endeavored to procure a grant for a new town. They were great hunters and trappers, as the number of beaver skins and other furs sold to Major Pynchon indicate, and were probably more familiar with the topography of the town, which was a dense wilderness, than any other white men.

During a long period of active life, he bore a conspicuous part in the civil transactions of Sherborn, and was eminently serviceable during the great conflicts for our liberties and the maintenance of the constitution against the rebellion of '87. Then it was, that his appeals, from the moderator's chair, were wont to rouse his townsmen to enthusiasm in their country's cause; so that no town of its size in this patriotic commonwealth, went before Sherborn in the number of volunteers for the public service, or in promptness in furnishing supplies. To him Pomologists owe the discovery and first cultivation of the incomparable Porter apple. He inherited the ancient Sanger house, kept a small store and tavern, and once entertained Gen. Washington. As a landlord he did much to discourage idleness and excess. No man dared roll at his ninepins between one holiday and another. Gross offenders against decency and good order would hide from his presence, and feel more terror at his rebuke, than at any fulminations from the Sherborn pulpit. On the sabbath his bar was locked, and a key of gold could not open it; yet his rooms were open and fires free during the interim of divine service, while a solemnity befitting the day, reigned throughout the house, and no discourse was entered upon which could interrupt him in his uniform practice of reading the Bible."

Hollick remarks: "This is a wonderful example of a colonial deed for life support that also acts as a quasi-will.

144 "Clues to the identity of Martha, the wife of Gideon Mead (Enos, Jonathan, John, John), may be found in the journal of her grandson, Reuben McBride, now available in the L.D.S. Library in Salt Lake City; leading to the conclusion that Martha was a daughter of Jonathan and Abigail (Mead) Fiske of Greenwich, Connecticut. Among the relatives listed in Reuben McBride's journal are his great-uncles and great-aunts, i.e. brothers and sisters, with their spouses, of his four grandparents: Samuel and Margaret McBride, who emigrated from Ireland before 1766 to Saratoga County, New York, and Gideon and Martha Mead. By tradition, Margaret's maiden name was Brown, leaving only Martha's surname in question. Two of the great-uncles were Jonathan and David Fisk, which suggests that they were related by blood rather than by marriage, and just might be brothers of Martha. Gideon Mead, born about 1744, belonged to the Greenwich, Connecticut, family, and finding a Fisk family of the same period and area, with children named Jonathan, David and Martha, was not difficult. They were among the six minor children named in the will of Jonathan Fiske who died in Greenwich in 1756, their mother being Abigail Mead, a daughter of David and Abigail (Leosee) Mead. Although there is no birth record or marriage record for Martha, she was a minor in 1756 and apparently of legal age when she sold her inheritance in 1767, signing the documents with her mark. With the sale of her property, Martha Fiske disappears from the genealogical scene, but three years later, Martha, wife of Gideon Mead, gave birth to her second child Abigail in Nine Partners, Dutchess County, New York. Logically, the sale of Martha's property might well have coincided with her marriage to Gideon Mead and their removal to a new home in Nine Partners."

Called a "fisherman" when his daughter Lottie was baptized in 1888. He and his wife, with their son Alwyn, emigrated on the Royal Edward, which departed from Avonmouth (near Bristol) and arrived at Montreal on 25 Oct 1911. On the passenger list, he's described as a "gardener."

(Built by Fairfield Shipbuilding & Engineering Co., Glasgow, Scotland, the Royal Edward was placed in Avonmouth-Quebec-Montreal service in May 1910. Converted to a troopship in 1914, it was torpedoed and sunk near Kamadeliusa, Aegean Sea, August 1915, with the loss of 935 lives.)

He was baptized a Methodist, as was his daughter Lottie Couch. His mother was Elizabeth Uren, daughter of John Uren (1781-1862), son of Philip Uren, "tinner," who marred Anne Odgers, "sojourner," in 1777. A History of the Parishes of St. Ives, Lelant, Towednack and Zennor in the County of Cornwall (by John Hobson Matthews; London: Elliot Stock, 1892) notes that in St. Ives, "in Street-an-Garrow, are the ruined remains of an old house where Wesley stayed during his later visits to Saint Ives, when the house was the home of the Uren family." The Wesley in question being John Wesley, the founder of Methodism. This is confirmed in Wesley's own journals, published in seven volumes in the late 19th and early 20th century. On 27 Aug 1789 Wesley reports that he preached first at Truro (near St. Ives) and then at Port Isaac (a few miles further up the north coast). "I preached in the evening, in an open part of town, to almost all the inhabitants of it. How changed since the time when he that invited me durst not take me in, for fear his house should be pulled down!" A editor's footnote to this passage states that "During his later visits to St. Ives he was the guest of the Uren family in the house adjoining that of John Nance, his earliest host."

Wesley wasn't kidding about the threats of violence during his earlier visits. His entry for 4 April 1744, on the occasion of his first visit to St. Ives forty-five years earlier, notes that "I was a little surprised at entering John Nance's house, being received by many, who were waiting for me there, with a loud (though not bitter) cry. But they soon recovered; and we poured out our souls together in praises and thanksgiving. As soon as we went out we were saluted, as usual, with a huzza and a few stones and pieces of dirt." An editor's footnote notes that John Nance's house "stood at the top of the Street-an-Garrow (the rough street)", thus further confirming the accuracy of John Hobson Matthews's report. Street-an-Garrow exists today and can be viewed on Google Street View, which shows it to be one of those impossibly narrow English streets that would be terrifying to drive a car on. Its upper reach is capped by a U-shaped street now called Wesley Place.

In the next day's entry, 5 April 1744, Wesley writes "I took a view of the house which the mob had pulled down a little before, for joy that Admiral Matthews had beat the Spaniards. Such is the Cornish method of thanksgiving. I suppose, if Admiral Lestock had fought too, they would have knocked all the Methodists on the head." The house the mob had "pulled down" was that of a Methodist named James Roberts, who, like our ancestor Philip Uren, was a "tinner." In other words, Wesley's hosts and associates, both at the beginning of his long career as a travelling preacher, and at its end, were frequently working people just like the Urens, most of whom lived in what we would consider the rough part of town.

158 "Created first Lord Drummond 1487/8, seneschal and coroner of Strathearn, ambassador to England, supported the marriage of the Earl of Angus to Queen Margaret." [The Ancestry of Charles II, citation details below]

From the 1885-1900 Dictionary of National Biography:

He sat in parliament 6 May 1471, under the designation of dominus de Stobhall. On 20 March 1473–4 he had a charter of the offices of seneschal and coroner of the earldom of Strathearn, in which he was confirmed in the succeeding reign. In 1483 he was one of the ambassadors to treat with the English, to whom a safe-conduct was granted 29 Nov. of that year; again, on 6 Aug. 1484, to treat of the marriage of James, prince of Scotland, and Anne de la Pole, niece of Richard III. He was a commissioner for settling border differences nominated by the treaty of Nottingham, 22 Sept. 1484; his safe-conduct into England being dated on the ensuing 29 Nov. He was raised to the peerage by the title of Lord Drummond, 29 Jan. 1487–8. Soon after he joined the party against James III, and sat in the first parliament of James IV, 6 Oct. 1488. In this same year he was appointed a privy councillor and justiciary of Scotland, and was afterwards constable of the castle of Stirling. In 1489 the so-called Earl of Lennox rose in revolt against the king. He had encamped at Gartalunane, on the south bank of the Forth, in the parish of Aberfoyle, but during the darkness of the night of 11 Oct. was surprised and utterly routed by Drummond. As one of the commissioners to redress border and other grievances, Drummond had a safe-conduct into England 22 May 1495, 26 July 1511, 24 Jan. 1512–13, and 20 April 1514. In 1514 Drummond gave great offence to many of the lords by promoting the marriage of his grandson, Archibald Douglas, sixth earl of Angus, with the queen-dowager Margaret. Lyon king-at-arms (Sir William Comyn) was despatched to summon Angus before the council, when Drummond, thinking that he had approached the earl with more boldness than respect, struck him on the breast. In 1515 John, duke of Albany, was chosen regent, but because Drummond did not favour the election he committed him (16 July) a close prisoner to Blackness Castle, upon an allegation that he had used violence towards the herald. He was tried capitally, found guilty, and his estates forfeited. However, he was not long in coming to terms with Albany. With other lords he signed the answer of refusal to Henry VIII, who had advised the removal of Albany, to which his seal is affixed, 4 July 1516, and in October he announced his final separation from the queen's party. He was in consequence released from prison and freed from his forfeiture, 22 Nov. 1516.

In 1616, Gookin and his family removed to Carrigaline in Munster, Ireland and by the 1620s became a transporter of Irish cattle, goats, and human passengers to the Colony of Virginia and started a small settlement on land he held a patent to there from the Virginia Company. In 1622, he became a shareholder in the New England Company. After the collapse of his Virginia enterprise, he petitioned the king for a patent to land on the Island of Saint Brandan, a land to be yet discovered, and for free exportation of live cattle in early 1631."

162 "Daniel Gookin, military and governmental supervisor of the Indians, was born in England or Ireland in 1612, the son of Daniel Gookin, Sr. He travelled to Virginia with his younger brother to look after his father's land in the colony. He first appears in the colonial Virginia records in 1630 at the age of thirty. He received his own land of 2,500 acres in 1634-35. After his wife died in 1639, he returned to London and remarried Mary Dolling. They both sailed back to Virginia in 1641, where Gookin served as a representative from Upper Norfolk County in the Assembly and was appointed captain of the local militia. Gookin was sympathetic to the puritan cause during the British civil wars and carried the Nansemond Petition to Boston in the fall of 1642 asking that puritan ministers be sent to Virginia to establish three new parishes. Gov. William Berkeley ejected the ministers and Gookin moved to New England, where he became a member of the First Church in Boston and freeman in May 1644. While attending the Boston church, he settled in Roxbury but soon moved to Cambridge, where he became a member of Thomas Shepard's church. He was appointed captain of the Cambridge company militia (1648-87), elected representative from Cambridge to the Massachusetts General Court (1649 and 1651), chosen speaker of the House (1651), and elected assistant (1652-75, 1677-87). During the Cromwellian Protectorate, he travelled between England and New England. At the restoration, he returned on the same ship as the regicides Edward Whalley and William Goffe and entertained them at his Cambridge home before they moved into the colony of Connecticut. Gookin had assisted John Eliot with establishing praying Indian towns and was appointed superintendent of the Christian Indians in 1657. Because he had been busy on the island of Jamaica for most of 1656 and 1657 as an agent of the Cromwellian government, Humphrey Atherton took his place and it was only in 1661 that Gookin turned his full attention to the job of superintendent of Christian Indians. Gookin believed that Indians had to adopt European ways. When King Philip's War broke out in 1675, Gookin and Eliot moved many of the 'praying Indians' from Natick to Deer Island in Boston harbor to protect them, first, from hostile puritan settlers in the Boston area and, second, from Metacom's warriors. This did not make him popular and he was not elected assistant in 1676. He soon resumed his public office and was re-elected assistant the following year and appointed major general of the colony's militia. He died at his home in Cambridge on March 19, 1687. Gookin wrote two works on New England Indians (unpublished during the colonial period): Historical Collections of the Indians in New England (ms. 1674) and An Historical Account of the Doings and Sufferings of the Christian Indians of New England in 1675, 1676 and 1677 (ms. 1677)."

164 "Daniel McBride married Abigail Mead, who was born in 1770 in Dutchess County, New York. She descended from the Quaker Mead and Fiske families of Fairfield County, Connecticut. Abigail joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1833, almost 10 years after Daniel's death, as did most of their 9 children, and, after living in Kirtland, Ohio and Nauvoo, Illinois, emigrated to Utah in 1847, one of the oldest persons to cross the plains to Utah in that first settlement year." [Our Crandall and Beckstead Ancestors]

It's notable that Abigail Mead was descended from Meads on both sides -- her father was a Mead, and her mother's mother was one as well.

Out of all of TNH's Mormon pioneer ancestors, she may or may not have been the first to be baptised into the church, but born in 1770, she was certainly the oldest. She was born before the Revolution and lived to see the Salt Lake Valley.

From Our Crandall and Beckstead Ancestors:

About 1829, Abigail heard of the mysterious visions of the Prophet Joseph Smith, and wholly believed in them. She was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on June 25, 1833. The entire family also joined the church.

In the spring of 1835, they sold their farms at great sacrifices and traveled to Kirtland, Ohio to be with the rest of the Saints. The trip was made by stagecoach and canal boat, which took about six days.

They donated liberally to the building of the city of Kirtland and to the temple. With six of her children, Abigail enjoyed the heavenly manifestations given at the dedication of the Kirtland Temple on March 27, 1836. Her son, Reuben, became the custodian of the Kirtland Temple.

She received her patriarchal blessing from Joseph Smith, Sr. on June 8, 1836. The following is the body of the blessing:

"My aged sister, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of the world, and by the power and authority of the Priesthood, I lay my hands on thy head; and on the heads of thy posterity, confer a blessing. Thou hast had sorrow and affliction out of which the Lord is delivering thee. He has established thy faith. Thou has obeyed the Gospel of the Savior. Thy name is been written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Thou art of the lineage of Abraham. If thou holdest on thy way, the time will come when thou, like Job, shall see God, in the flesh, standing upon the earth. Thou shalt see angels and receive the communication of the Holy Ghost. Thy children shall stand in the covenant, by the power of God, thou shalt go to Zion, and be in good health. Thy mind shall be strong and rejoice in thy God. Thou shalt not want for the things of this life. Give up thyself to God and thou shalt see they redeemer, who thou desirest to know. Thou shalt be a member of the Celestial World. I seal these blessings upon thy head. I seal these things up to eternal life. Amen and amen."

Abigail endured the persecutions attending the twelve thousand members of the church in their migration to Nauvoo, Illinois. [...]

Abigail assembled with the huge crowd when Joseph led his famous Nauvoo Legion, in their elegant uniforms with their plumed hats, through the streets of Nauvoo for the last time. She heard his famous farewell address, with unsheathed sword, pointing heavenward in defense of his followers, from the top of an unfinished building.

Shortly after the Prophet was martyred, with deepest sorrow, she was able to view his remains, along with thousands of tear-stained companions. [...]

Abigail was present on August 8, 1844, when the mantle of Joseph Smith fell upon Brigham Young. She heard Brigham Young's declaration that he was the rightful leader of the Saints and would lead them safely to the tops of the Rocky Mountains, as predicted by the martyred Prophet.

Abigail was endowed on January 28, 1846, in the Nauvoo Temple. She was among the Saints expelled from Nauvoo, who made their homes in tents, covered wagons, and hurriedly erected log cabins across the Mississippi River.

She joined the first emigrant company to follow Brigham Young, leaving Elk Horn on June 17, 1847. She endured the inconveniences of the long trek in this huge company of fifteen hundred men, women, and children, who were in five hundred sixty wagons, with five thousand head of stock. They traveled between four to eleven miles a day, taking turns by the hundreds in leading the caravan.

On September 4, 1847, they rejoiced in meeting Brigham Young and his party, who had come to lead them into the Salt Lake Valley. Three days later, a great feast was arranged, concluding with a dance; an Indian attack followed. It was the latter part of September when they arrived in the Salt Lake Valley.

Abigail was described as a short, rather stout, fine old lady with a square face and a fair complexion.

165 "Daniel Wing, Senior, of Sandwich, had a daughter Lydia who was a most remarkable rebel against the conventional lifestyle in her family and town. [Following the death of her first husband, Thomas Hambleton,] she returned to Sandwich about 1677 at age 30 with two small sons born in Rhode Island, and lived with these boys in a primitive hovel previously used by Indian women tending to summer crops on open planting fields. This was unheard-of, and furthermore, the land had not been granted to her or to anyone. (This field where she settled is now the park around the Military Museum at Heritage Plantation of Sandwich.) Her living here was a matter of deep embarrassment to her father and to the Quaker community, who gave her gifts of shoes, com, wool and cash, and would have found her a proper house, but she refused to move. Her story continues to her death at about 57, a rebel to the end." [From Sandwich: A Cape Cod Town by R. A. Lovell, Jr. Sandwich, Massachusetts: Town of Sandwich, 2015.

King's Lieutenant of Ireland, 8 June 1413-6 Jan 1414." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntz, citation details below.]

From Wikipedia:

Stanley's father was Master-Forester of the Forest of Wirral, notorious for his repressive activities. Both Stanley and his older brother, William (who succeeded their father as Master-Forester), were involved in criminal cases which charged them with a forced entry in 1369 and in the murder of Thomas Clotton in 1376.

Conviction for the murder of Clotton resulted in Stanley being declared an outlaw. However, he was already distinguishing himself in military service in the French wars, and he was pardoned in 1378 at the insistence of his commander, Sir Thomas Trivet.

In 1385 he married Isabel Lathom, heir to the extensive lands of Sir Thomas Lathom (great-great-grandson of Humphrey VI de Bohun, 3rd Earl of Hereford) in south-west Lancashire. The marriage took place despite the opposition of John of Gaunt and gave Stanley the sort of wealth and financial security he could never have hoped to have had as the younger son in his own family.[1] Stanley had four sons, John, Henry, Thomas and Ralph as well as two daughters.

The year 1386 saw his first appointment in Ireland as deputy to Robert de Vere, Duke of Ireland. This occurred because of the insurrection created by the friction between Sir Philip de Courtenay, the then English Lieutenant of Ireland, and his appointed governor James Butler, 3rd Earl of Ormond. Stanley led an expedition to Ireland on behalf of de Vere and King Richard II to quell it. He was accompanied by Bishop Alexander de Balscot of Meath and Sir Robert Crull. Butler joined them upon their arrival in Ireland. Because of the success of the expedition, Stanley was appointed to the position of Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Alexander to chancellor, Crull to treasurer, and Butler to his old position as governor. In 1389, Richard II appointed him justiciar of Ireland, a post he held until 1391. He was heavily involved in Richard's first expedition to Ireland in 1394–1395.

Throughout the 1390s he was involved in placating possible rebellion in Cheshire. Between 1396 and 1398 he served as captain of Roxburgh. Stanley took part in Richard II's expedition to Ireland in 1399. However, on his return to England, Stanley, who had long proved adept at political manoeuvring, turned his back on Richard and submitted to Henry IV of England.

Stanley's fortunes were equally good under the Lancastrians. He was granted lordships in the Welsh marches, and served a term as lieutenant of Ireland. In 1403 he was made steward of the household of Henry, Prince of Wales (later Henry V). Unlike many of the Cheshire gentry, he took the side of the king in the rebellion of the Percys. He was wounded in the throat at the Battle of Shrewsbury.

In 1405 he was granted the tenure of the Isle of Man, which had been confiscated from the rebellious Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland. In this period he also became steward of the king's household, and was elected a Knight of the Garter. In 1413 King Henry V of England sent him to serve once more as lieutenant of Ireland. He died at Ardee, County Louth, in 1414, after being satirised by the O'Higgins of Meath for despoiling the lands and raiding the cows of Niall O'Higgins. He lasted but five weeks, according to the Four Masters, before succumbing "to the virulence of the lampoons". His body was returned to Lathom and buried at Burscough Priory near Ormskirk. This was the second such Poet's Miracle performed by the O'Higgins.

183 "DONALD, sixth Earl of Lennox, succeeded his father in 1333. Very little is recorded regarding him. He adhered to the cause of King David Bruce, and some of his lands in Lothian, including Easter Glencorse and others, were forfeited. His name, however, chiefly occurs in connection with charters granted by him, but these need not be specially enumerated, the rather as they are all without date. One charter may be noted, the granting to Maurice Buchanan the lands of Buchanan and Sallechy, giving him jurisdiction over life and limb on these lands, provided those condemned were put to death on the Earl's own gallows at the Cathir. The reddendo of the lands was one cheese from each house where cheese was made, to be furnished to the King's common army when occasion required, and also six pennies of silver in name of blench farm, if asked, at Whitsunday and Martinmas. The Earl also had a charter from King David II, of date 2 May 1361, confirming the extensive grant of free forestry made by Alexander III.

Payn was, however, aged only 13 or 14 in 1258 and d. s.p. or s.p.s. before 20 September 1279, when his brother Patrick was his heir.

In a ped. of Tybotot in Thoroton's Notts, Vol. i. pp. 203-04, Robert's wife is called Eve, daughter of P . . . de Chaworth. In the Visitation of Notts, Harl.

He laboured in his native Yorkshire with such zeal and sacrifice, that his strength failed. Arthur Webster, an apostate, took advantage of his illness to betray him, and he was committed to the York Kidcot by the Council of the North. In his weakness he consented to be present at the heretical service but he refused to repeat the act and remained a prisoner. After confinement for about six months, he was again brought before the Council and sentenced to banishment. On 23 Aug., 1585, he was transferred to the Castle of Kingston-upon-Hull, and within a week shipped beyond the seas. He made his way to Rome, where he was entertained at the English College for nine days from 15 April, 1586, his purpose being to atone for his lapse by the pilgrimage, and he also entertained some thoughts of entering religion. There he understood that it was God's will that he should return to the English mission, and reaching Reims on 10 June, he left again for England on 16. After about six months he was betrayed by his brother, to whose house in Wath he had resorted, and was sent a close prisoner to York Castle by the Council. He was arraigned at the Lent Assizes, condemned as a traitor on the score of his priesthood, and on 23 March, 1586-7 was drawn on the hurdle from the castle yard to York Tyburn, where he suffered the death penalty."

This special tenure, known as that of 'Wyrion Eden,' is prominent in the 14th century in the lordship of Denbigh amongst the collateral branches of the family, Ednyfed's own descendants in the same period are found in the townships of Trecastell, Penmynydd, Erddreiniog, Clorach, Gwredog, Trysglwyn, and Tregarnedd in Anglesey, and in Crewyrion, Creuddyn, Gloddaeth, Dinorwig, and Cwmllannerch in Caernarfonshire. They are also found in Llansadwrn in Carmarthenshire and at Llechwedd-llwyfan, Cellan, and Rhyd-onnen in Cardiganshire. Even before the conquest of 1282, therefore, Ednyfed's immediate descendants formed a 'ministerial aristocracy' of considerable wealth, and their widespread possessions, combined with the favourable terms on which they were held, made them the forerunners of that class of Welsh squires whose emergence is characteristic of the post-conquest period."

203 "Elder Joseph Crandall, son of Elder John, married (first) Deborah Burdick and was of Newport, Westerly, and Kingstown respectively. Mr. Crandall became a very useful man, and filled the desk in the church at Newport to the great satisfaction of its members for many years. He was called to the office of Elder there, and ordained May 8, 1715. During his administration the church was at the height of its prosperity, many of the most wealthy and influential citizens being among its members." [Representative Men and Old Families of Rhode Island, Volume III, Chicago: J. H. Beers & Co., 1908.]

From The Seventh-Day Baptist Memorial, 1852 (citation details below):

Joseph Crandall was the third pastor of the Seventh-day Baptist Church in Newport, R.I. He was a member of that church as early as the year 1692, at which period the earliest existing records of the church commence. He was probably a son of Eld. John Crandall, of Westerly, but at what time he was born, or when he was baptized, we have no present means of ascertaining. He appears to have been an active member, frequently serving the church as messenger to brethren residing in different parts of the Colonies, and generally being appointed to perform the most difficult duties in the disciplinary measures of the church; and in July, 1703, he was selected to accompany the pastor, Elder Hiscox, on a journey to Pennsylvania, as counsel to the brethren there, in a matter requiring the best judgment of the congregation. He also acted as treasurer of the church for a long time, and continued in the performance of this trust after the Westerly church was set off, he being a member of that branch, after the separation in 1708. He resided in Westerly, yet the church of Newport often requiring the services of an elder to assist their pastor, or serve in his absence, made such service a condition of the final arrangement of separation. From the following extract of the minutes of the church in Westerly, we discover that he was already a deacon, empowered to administer the ordinance of baptism, such power being often conferred upon the deacon by that church, at that as well as at subsequent periods.

Westerly, 9th of the 10th month, 1708: "The church met by appointment at the house of Brother John Maxson, Jr. to hear and consider the letter received from the church at Rhode Island, bearing the date ye 27th of ye 9th month, 1708, in which they say: If Brother Joseph Crandall may at the least for the present perform the administration of baptism to both them and us, they can and do consent, that we may be henceforward two distinct churches in association. The church taking into consideration, and the said Mr. Crandall manifesting himself to be willing to grant their desire, the church do consent that he may administer baptism among them, and that our result in the same be drawn up in a letter to them, and signed in behalf of the church, which was done the same day."

It will be seen, among the resolutions of both churches at the period of their separation, that full consent was not at first given to divide and organize at Westerly. There was a provision requiring those not present at Westerly, from Newport, to give their consent in writing, which it seems they were willing to do, upon the above-named condition; thus securing the services of a most useful man, whom thay had formerly relied upon to serve them, as occasion might require. It was like the parting of old friends, when the brethren at Newport came to strike from their roll the names of so many well-tried soldiers of the cross of Christ, especially considering that they had struggled together nearly forty years to build up the cause of the Sabbath in New England. Therefore they seized upon the present contingency to secure a link of visible connection, that their loneliness might be somewhat abated.

The records of the church do not inform us particularly of the number and standing of Mr. Crandall's children. There were several members of his name, and a daughter is mentioned as having been baptized on the 9th of February, 1709, at Westerly, who was the wife on Nathaniel Wells.

The doctrine of imposition of hands was generally entertained by the Seventh-day Baptist Churches, though it was not universally practiced, and the exceptions sometimes grew out of the fact, that persons were baptized by the deacons in the absence of the pastor, and not being authorized to perform the laying on of hands, the individuals would become members in full communion without receiving the token of that ordinance. Mr. Crandall being anxious to have a greater uniformity in this respect, took occasion, at a church meeting held on the 3d of July, 1709, to submit a proposition on the subject, which was as follows:

"Whereas, I have been formerly chosen and ordained to the place of deacon in this congregation, and appointed to administer baptism, now therefore should the pastor or elder not be present, and the person baptized should request me to administer the ordinance of laying on of hands, ought it not to be performed by the free voice of the congregation?"

After debating the question, the congregation not being unanimous, it was deferred for consideration.

Mr. Crandall was however proposed for an eldership on the 16th of the same month by the church, but after conversation with him upon the subject, and he not being inclined, the subject was deferred.

There is no further expression of the church recorded, in relation to his proposition, yet he was suffered to administer the ordinance of laying on of hands, and did so the next month at New London, Jonathan Rogers and Mrs. Newbury being admitted by him, as were several others afterward.

In 1710, the church at Westerly called upon six of the brethren to "improve their gifts" with the pastor alternately: Joseph Crandall being one of them, began to preach. He however removed to Kings Town (now South Kingstown) in 1712, and not approving of the liberty given by the church to one of the gifted brethren, refused to meet with the church for some time, though urged to do so repeatedly. The next year, however, the breach was healed, and Mr. Crandall entered with his customary zeal upon the duties of his station, and a letter was given to William Davis, the obnoxious brother, to one of the churches in England, whither he desired to go.

On the 8th of May, 1715, Mr. Crandall, in compliance with the call of the church at Newport, was ordained an elder of that church. The charge was given by the venerable Pastor, Eld. William Gibson, according to the 1st Epistle of Peter, 5th chapter -- "The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away."

He continued in the service of the church in Newport, as colleague of Eld. Gibson, until the death of that eminent servant of God, in 1717, when he was invested with the office of pastor.

The society of Newport was generally well informed; but during the period of his administration there was a constellation of intelligent and literary characters there, never before equaled in New England. Among them were John Callender, Dean Berkley, Richard Ward, Henry Collins, and Thomas Ward, some of them members of his congregation. The meeting-house now standing in Newport, on Barney-st., was built in his time, and was then one of the finest public buildings in the place.

Mr. Crandall was an unpretending but industrious man. He had not the learning of his venerable predecessor, but was a sound and faithful preacher of the gospel; strict in his discipline, yet courteous to all. Having a large and expensive family, he was poor, yet the liberality of the members of the congregation was sufficiently manifest for his comfort; all their contributions for his support were, by a vote of the church, to pass through the hands of the deacons, and they were charged to visit him as often as necessary, to see that all his wants were supplied. He died on the 12th of Sept. 1737.

From the Wikipedia article about Joseph Parsons, Jr.:

"Joseph Parsons, Jr. (1647-1729) was an early settler and prominent colonial leader in Northampton, Massachusetts. [...]

"Parsons, Jr. was involved in several business enterprises in and around Northampton, including grist mills, sawmills, and iron. He later became active in politics; in 1696, he was commissioned as one of the four judges on the Hampshire County Court of Common Pleas, which at the time included all of Western Massachusetts. He served in this capacity until 1719. Parsons, Jr. also served as a representative in the Massachusetts General Court; he represented Springfield in 1706 and 1708, and Northampton from 1711-1715, 1717, 1721, and 1724. In addition, he held several other minor offices; in 1700, he was appointed as the first town moderator in Northampton history, and he also served as justice of the peace for a number of years.

"Throughout most of Parson, Jr.'s life in Northampton, Solomon Stoddard was the pastor of the church. However, by 1725 Stoddard was 82 years old and unable to fulfill all of his pastoral duties alone. So, the town voted seven members onto a committee to find a suitable candidate to assist, and upon Stoddard's death, replace him as pastor. Joseph Parsons, Jr. was one of the members of this pastoral search committee, which ultimately chose Jonathan Edwards, whose tenure as pastor would lead to the Great Awakening."

It's not mentioned in the Wikipedia article, but Joseph Parsons and Elizabeth Strong were also ancestors of early Caltech rocket scientist, JPL co-founder, and Aleister Crowley disciple Marvel Whiteside "Jack" Parsons (1914-1952), famous for having (1) welcomed the pre-Scientology L. Ron Hubbard into his life, (2) having his wife, yacht, and savings stolen by Hubbard, and (3) later dying as the result of a chemical explosion in his garage.

223 "FITZGERALD, MAURICE (d. 1176), one of the conquerors of Ireland; son of Gerald de Windsor, chief follower of Arnulf Montgomery and castellan of Pembroke Castle (1093-post 1116), by his wife Nest (q.v.), daughter of Rhys ap Tewdwr. Maurice and WILLIAM, two of the sons of Gerald and Nest, and lords respectively of Llanstephan and Emlyn, came into prominence as leaders of the Anglo-Norman settlers in West Wales against the great revolt of the native princes in 1136. In 1146 they were at the head of the unsuccessful attempt to recover Llanstephan Castle from the Welsh. Later in his career Maurice Fitzgerald took part, with his half-brother Robert Fitzstephen (q.v.), in the conquest of Ireland. In 1169 he landed in Wexford with his followers and led the English contingent against Dublin. He finally settled in the cantref of Kildare which earl Richard granted to him for his services. It is said that his wife (living in 1171) was Alice, granddaughter of Roger de Montgomery. Maurice, who was a brave and modest man of few words, d. at Wexford c. 1 Sept. 1176. [William d. 1174.]" [Dictionary of Welsh Biography]

"His brother, Bishop David, granted him the Stewardship of St. Davids hereditarily. Under Stephen [between 1136 and 1146] the sons of Gerald were hard pressed by the Welsh in their effort to dislodge the Norman interlopers from the lands they had seized. The occasion of Maurice's going to Ireland, where he and his descendants were to flourish so exceedingly, was the promise, in 1167, of Dermot MacMurrough, the dispossessed King of Leinster, to give Wexford to him and to his half-brother, Robert FitzStephen, if they would help him to regain the kingdom -- a promise which he duly honoured. Preceded by FitzStephen, and accompanied by his nephew Raymond, Maurice landed at Wexford in 1169 with two ships of armed followers, and with the aid of his Norman allies Dermot recovered Dublin. The coming over of Henry II, and the political dispositions which he made, fettered the progress of the Geraldines; although at his departure [Easter 1172] the King left Maurice one of the three keepers of Dublin. After spending some time in Wales, Maurice returned to Ireland, where the Keeper, Earl Richard, Strongbow, was consolidating the Normans in the face of the Irish by making them grants of land in fee, and by arranging marriages between members of the factious families. There is no record of his marriage. He d. 1 Sep 1176, at Wexford." [Complete Peerage X:11-12]

It might also be that Thomas's uncle Henry Axtell had bequeathed a good legacy to Thomas and father William found it unnecessary to add to it.

226 "For the entire forty years of his residence in New England, Simon Willard performed more public service, both civil and military, than all but a few of his contemporaries." [Robert Charles Anderson]

From Wikipedia, accessed 3 May 2020:

Simon Willard was an early Massachusetts fur trader, colonial militia leader, legislator, and judge.

Willard was born in Horsmonden, Kent, England and baptized on April 7, 1605. He emigrated to Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1634 with his first wife Mary Sharp and their daughters Mary and Elizabeth. He was a founder of Concord, Massachusetts, served it as clerk from 1635 to 1653, and helped negotiate its purchase from the Native American owners. Willard represented Concord in the Massachusetts General Court from 1636 to 1654, and was assistant and councillor from 1654 to 1676.

Willard served as an advisor to the Nashaway Company which founded Lancaster, Massachusetts in the 1640s and 1650s, and he settled in Lancaster by 1660. In 1651 Willard laid out 1,000 acres for settlement along the Assabet River which may have included parts of what is now Maynard, Massachusetts when a Native American leader, Tantamous (Old Jethro), defaulted on a mortgage for a debt due to Concord gunsmith, Herman Garrett, for an unpaid debt. In 1654/55, Willard led an expedition against Ninigret in southern New England, and removed Ninigret's Pequot wards and placed them with Niantic Sachem Harman Garrett in what is now Westerly, Rhode Island. In Massachusetts Willard served as an advisor to the Nashaway Indians and provided guns to them by order of the Massachusetts General Court. He served as a major of militia in King Philip's War in 1676 at age 70, and he was the Chief Military Officer of Middlesex County, Massachusetts and repelled a Nipmuc force that was besieging Brookfield. He became a magistrate and died aged 71 on April 24, 1676 in Charlestown, Massachusetts while holding court.

The Willard Elementary School in Concord, Massachusetts is named after Willard. The Liberty ship 0743 Simon Willard was also named after him.

Nevertheless [...] it is probable that Fulcois was the paternal grandfather of Rotrou, and thus father of Geoffroy. Fulcois is given the title of count by his grandson, but there is no direct evidence of the region over which he was count. However, since Rotrou was count of Mortagne, it has been supposed that Fulcois was also a count of Mortagne, a reasonable presumption.

244 "FULTON, Ky., July 7 — Mrs. Kate Workman, former resident of Fulton and an aunt of Mrs. Mary Owens of Fulton, died Saturday morning in Detroit. Surviving are two daughters, Mrs. Mildred Hayden and Miss Neville Workman of Detroit, two grandchildren and several great-greandchildren. Funeral services and burial were held in Detroit today." [Paducah (Kentucky) Sun, 7 Jul 1964, p. 17]

Her father Monroe Marshall Jacobs died when she was about five years old. Then when she was nearly eight, her mother married Uriah Jasper Hammonds.

When she was sixteen, she herself married William Richard Workman, her stepfather's nephew, twelve years older than her. (William's mother Narcissa was Uriah Hammonds's sister.)

Sometime in the late 1920s, when she was about forty and her younger daughter Mildred was still in her teens, she bundled up both daughters and left for Michigan (legend says, in the middle of the night), never to see her husband again.

According to PNH's father, Neville stayed in occasional touch with her father, but Kate and Mildred had nothing further to do with him.

We've always wondered if she was pressured into marrying her stepfather's nephew while she was still in her teens, and if the marriage ultimately worked out as well as such an arrangement might have been expected to. The abruptness of her departure does suggest some kind of sudden and unpleasant discovery or event. (Alternately, her mother's death in 1926 might have been what finally set events in motion.)

One of the witnesses to the record of William Workman posting marriage bond was a "J. T. Hammonds". Possibly William Workman's cousin James Thomas Hammonds (1863-1914), son of Younger Hammonds -- or possibly William's cousin Thomas James Hammonds (b. 1865), son of Kate's stepfather Uriah Jasper Hammonds by his previous wife Mary Elizabeth Bobbitt. At any rate, it does seem like Kate Jacobs spent a lot of her early life overwhelmingly surrounded by Hammondses.

245 "Garcia Sanchez I appears as king about 929, and is sole king from 931, although his mother Toda served as regent until he overthrew her control with the help of her kinsman, Abd ar Rahman III. He then continued to rule, largely under the thumb of Abd ar Rahman until the latter's death in 961, and on to 970. [...The nickname] 'the Trembler' is more in line with the life of Garcia I, who after expelling his mother spent his entire reign trembling under the thumb of Cordoba without putting up any resistance, and not to Garcia II, who though unsuccessful, stood up to Cordoba and tried to escape from their yoke." [Todd A. Farmerie, citation details below.]

From Leo van de Pas's site:

Garcia was born about 919, the son of Sancho I Garcés, king of Navarre, and Toda Aznárez. He was the king of Pamplona from the death of his uncle Jimeno Garcés. As he was just six years old at the time of his father's death, his uncle succeeded, and it was only in 930, the last year of the latter's reign, that Garcia appears with the royal title, though this was probably just a courtesy. On Jimeno's death in 931 the 12-year old Garcia succeeded, with his mother Toda serving as regent. This regency ended in 934, when his first cousin Caliph Abd-ar-Rahman III intervened on his behalf, and Garcia began to rule as sole king.

This office had the responsibility of the actual fabric of the Guild Hall as well as the collection of sums due to the guild merchants for admissions, and so on. Two men usually served together. A century later, they were called Borough Treasurers. The office of Hallwarden dates back to at least 1361. [...] On 6 October 1515, George Parkhurst was named bailiff.

Approved men were associates of the Mayor, entry being restricted to those who had served as bailiff. There are many more entries in the borough records for his appointment as Hallwarden and he was on the list of Approved Men year after year for the rest of his life. On 15 January 1514/15, he and Henry Cowper were sworn in as Flesh and Fish Tasters. In 1522, George Parkhurst was elected Mayor and Coroner of Guildford, being sworn in 6 October.

253 "Gilbert, according to the then custom, shared with his brother the lordship of Galloway and the lands. They attended William the Lion in his invasion of Northumberland in 1174, when that monarch was taken prisoner. Galloway then broke into rebellion, many subjects of Scotland were murdered, the King's officers expelled, and the castles which had but recently been built to protect them thrown down. The brothers then quarrelled as to their respective jurisdictions, and Gilbert, by the agency of his son Malcolm, perhaps illegitimate, slew his brother Uchtred, who adhered to the Scottish King, 22 September 1174, with peculiar circumstances of savage brutality. Gilbert offered to pay the English King a yearly tribute of 2000 merks silver, 500 cows and 500 swine, but Henry II., on account of the murder of Uchtred, refused both homage and tribute. In 1175, William of Scotland being restored to liberty, marched an army into Galloway to chastise Gilbert, but instead of executing justice, contented himself with exacting a pecuniary satisfaction. In 1176, Gilbert came to York with William, and was received by Henry. There he left his son Duncan as hostage for his friendship, and in 1180 he was charged in the English Exchequer with the then enormous sum of £919, 9s. In 1184, he is found under the protection of England, making devastating raids into Scotland and rejecting terms of accommodation offered to him." [The Scots Peerage, citation details below.]

What the Scots Peerage means by "peculiar circumstances of savage brutality" is that Gilbert, in order, mutilated, blinded, castrated, and then killed his brother Uchtred, and did the same to Uchtred's son Duncan.

In Everett Hall Pendleton's 1956 volume Early New England Pendletons, With Some Account of the Three Groups who Took the Name Pembleton, and Notices of Other Pendletons of Later Origin in the United States, we read about the aftermath of that expedition: "While [Pendleton] seems to have had something substantial out of this adventure, his spiritual advisor, the Rev. James Noyes, of Stonington, was not so fortunate. Six months later he sent a long and rambling letter of complaint to John Allyn, the colony's secretary at Hartford, alleging that although he had been engaged 'three times in the warr service' he had received no compensation whatever, either in money or in prisoners. And he seemed particularly annoyed that some captive girl of fourteen years had not been sent him as requested, such a prize, no doubt, commanding a premium in the slave market."

Also from http://www.werelate.org/wiki/Person:James_Noyes_%282%29:

The First Congregational Church (later called the Old Road Church) of Stonington, Connecticut was established, 3 June 1674, with nine members: Rev.

Thomas Miner was the first deacon.

The pier slab that for over a century has been over the grave of Rev. James Noyes of the old Wetequequock burying ground, Stonington, Conn., was relettered at Doty's marble works in the 1890s. The following is the inscription on it

That body, overreaching itself, ordered that the church settle Mr. Bailey and pay him £60 a year, but this decision was ignored and Bailey retired in 1679. From 1682 to about 1691 he preached at Killingworth, Conn., going to Roxbury in the latter year and practising as a physician. He died after a very distressing illness Jan. 20, 1706/7.

He was at the siege of Carlaverock, July 1300; joined in the Barons' letter to the Pope, 12 February 1300/1; was granted free warren in his demesne lands, 28 January 1301/2; served again in Scotland, 1303-04 and 1310; was summoned to attend the Coronation of Edward II, 18 January 1307/8; a Commr. de walliis et fossatis, co. Lincoln, 18 July 1310." [Complete Peerage V:439-40.]

"He went abroad with Hugh Despenser on a royal embassy to Germany in 1294. The date of his entry into the royal household is not known, but he was listed as a banneret of the king's household from 1297 to 1306. In 1297 he was among those appointed to receive fines from those clergy who wished to re-enter the king's protection during Edward I's dispute with Archbishop Winchelsey. It seems certain that he continued to support the king during the developing political crisis in that year; he participated in the fruitless royal expedition in Flanders in the autumn with a retinue of one knight and twelve squires. Two of the latter were knighted in the course of the campaign. Welles fought with Edward at the battle of Falkirk in 1298. In 1299 he was given custody of Rockingham Castle and was made keeper of the royal forests between Oxford and Stamford, a clear sign of royal favour. In the same year he was summoned to parliament as a baron. In 1300 he was present on the Caerlaverock campaign in Scotland, serving with a contingent of three knights and nine squires. He served in Scotland again in 1301 and in 1303–4. His involvement in the Scottish wars continued under Edward II, with service in the campaign of 1309–10. He was also summoned regularly to parliament." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography

H., and trustee of Dartmouth College, from which institution he received the degree of D.D., in 1800." [History and Genealogy of the Pomeroy Family, citation details below.]

From John P. Peters's "Preface" to Diary of David McClure, citation details below:

Dr. McClure's grandfather, Samuel, and his brother David, with others, came from the neighborhood of Londonderry to Boston about 1728, and established a Presbyterian church in that city, later known as the Federal Street Church. Samuel McClure was the first Deacon of this church, and was succeeded in that office by his son John and his grandson Thomas. The latter resigned his office and left the church when it turned Unitarian under Dr. Channing.

David, the writer of this diary, was the son of John, the son of Samuel McClure, and of Rachel, daughter of William McClintock, one of the original immigrants. He was born in Newport, R. I., Nov. 18, 1748, but most of his early life was spent in Boston, where his father kept a retail grocery. His early training was obtained in Lovell's Latin School. At the age of fifteen, after a brief experience in a shop, he was sent to Dr. Wheelock's school at Lebanon, Conn., to prepare to become a missionary to the Indians. In 1765 he entered Yale College, and graduated in 1769, in the same class with the elder President Dwight. The late Rev. E. H. Gillett, D.D., in an article in Hours at Home, Feb., 1870, entitled "Yale College One Hundred Years Ago," gives a few extracts from letters of McClure and his schoolmate, David Avery. The former, under date of Oct. 30, 1765, writes to Dr. Wheelock of the dreadful way in which Freshmen are handled by the upper-class men. "Freshmen," says he, "have attained almost the happiness of slaves." Oct. 30, 1767, he writes "Jonne [John Wheelock, later President of Dartmouth College, then a Freshman at Yale] has been ordered up once or twice into the long garret with the rest of his class, and I think twice alone. It gives me great grief to see such practices held up in this seat of learning, and so little religious manners prevalent." In another letter, written after his experience among the Oneida Indians, he says "Mr. Johnson and I rarely converse in any other language [than Indian]. I hope not to lose what little I have already attained." As his diary also shows, his intention to be a missionary to the Indians was always before his mind. Later in his college course he writes about Dr. Daggett as follows "The Rev. President and tutors are universally loved in College, and have a tender concern for our future as well as present welfare and happiness."

After graduation, McClure took charge of Moor's Charity School at Lebanon, Conn. In 1770 he moved with the school to Hanover, N. H., where he was head of the school and tutor in Dartmouth College. In May, 1772, he and Frisbie were ordained to go as missionaries to the Delaware Indians on the Muskingum River, in Ohio, the expenses of the mission being supplied by asociety in Scotland. Owing to the unsettled conditions in that region preceding the outbreak of the Revolution, the mission proved a failure, and in 1773 McClure returned to New Hampshire, where he was installed pastor of the church at North Hampton in 1776. Dec. 10, 1780, he married Hannah Pomeroy, daughter of Rev. Dr. Benjamin Pomeroy, of Hebron, Conn., and niece of President Wheelock. She died in 1814, and in 1816 he married Mrs. Betsy Martin, of Providence, R. I., who survived him. In 1786 he was installed as pastor at East Windsor, Conn., where he also established a school. In 1798 his voice failed. After this he preached only occasionally, and finally, in 1807, resigned his salary, and in 1809 his pastorate, but continued to teach school almost if not quite to the time of his death. He was always deeply interested in Dartmouth College, and personally in its first President, his old teacher, Rev. Eleazer Wheelock, D. D. In 1777 he became a trustee of the college, and in 1800 it conferred upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of Divinity. In 1795 he published a volume of Sermons on the Decalogue (Beach & Jones, Hartford). In 1811, in conjunction with Dr. Parish, he wrote Memoirs of Rev. Eleazer Wheelock. In 1818 appeared a second volume of his sermons, entitled Sermons on the Moral Law (printed and published by Wm. S. Marsh, Hartford). He also wrote a History of East Windsor.

In Sprague's Annals of the American Pulpit, Dr. McClure is described as a small man, well formed, and with very attractive manners, a man of culture and scholarship. He was a good preacher, and his sermons, contrary to the tendencies of his day, were moral and practical, not theological.

This confirmation is undated, but, from the names of the witnesses, appears to have been granted between 1272 and 1295. Willielmus de Haya of Locherworth also witnesses a charter of Donald, Earl of Mar, to Sir Nicol Hay of Erroll about 1290. William de Haya de Lochorvire had a payment of twenty marks in fee from the Royal chamber at Martinmas 1288 and Pentecost following, under a writ from the Guardians of the Kingdom 29 April 1289, and he gave a receipt for his fee of ten marks sterling for the past year at Scone 8 May following. He was present as a Baron at the Parliament held at Brigham 14 March 1289-90 to ratify the Treaty of Salisbury for the marriage of Queen Margaret to Prince Edward of England," he, then designed as 'Guillaume de la Haye,' and William Sinclair of Rosslyn being the only two representatives of the county of Edinburgh to appear. Sir William de la Haye swore fealty to King Edward I at Dunfermline 17 July 1291 and in the precept issued by the English King 18 August 1291, to Simon Fraser, Keeper of the Forest of Selkirk relating to the grant of stags to the Scottish magnates, he is to receive four. He was one of those nominated by the elder Robert Bruce to represent his claim to the Crown in the assembly summoned to meet at Norham by Edward I 10 May 1291. Under the designation of William de la Haye 'de Loukorue' he was summoned to appear before Edward 22 November 1293. Though originally an adherent of Bruce, he appears to have accepted the decision in favour of Baliol (17 November 1292), and supported that King in his endeavour to assert the independence of Scotland. He was, however, taken prisoner by the English at the capture of Dunbar 28 April 1296, and committed to Berkhampsted Castle 16 May. He again swore fealty to Edward at Berwick 28 August that same year, and had his lands of Locherworth restored by the English 10 September following, but remained in custody until 28 August 1297, when, by letters dated at Winchelsea 22 August, he was released on his undertaking to accompany Edward to Flanders, John, Earl of Atholl, being one of the sureties for him.

From The Scots Peerage, citation details below:

MALCOLM, fifth Earl of Lennox, who, as stated, appears to have succeeded his father some little time before 1305, perhaps in 1303. It was probably he who, on 11 March 1303-4, received from King Edward I a summons to attend Parliament, being required at the same time to guard the fords of the river Forth. Shortly afterwards, on 1 April 1304, he was ordered to forbid his people going or carrying provisions to the garrison of Stirling Castle. In or about the following year he made the application already cited as to the sum paid for relief of his lands. The King replied by postponing an answer until an 'extent' or valuation of the Earl's lands had been made, a fact which corroborates the view that he had not long succeeded to the earldom.

The Earl must have joined the party of Bruce at an early date, as on 1 June 1306, even before the battle of Methven, King Edward I commanded to enter in the roll of grants the earldom of Lennox for Sir John Menteith, who had already, in 1305, or before it, been appointed Sheriff, and on 15 June he directed the Chamberlain and Chancellor of Scotland to grant charter and give sasine of the earldom to Sir John, with the custody of the Castle of Dumbarton. On 14 December 1307 Sir John Menteith is addressed by King Edward II as Earl of Lennox, showing that he was then still in possession. These dates cover the period of the adventures of King Robert Bruce in the Lennox country in the company of the Earl and other adherents, and corroborate the narrative of Barbour that the Earl also was a fugitive at that date. He was, however, again taking part in affairs on 16 March 1308-9, when he joined with other nobles and barons in the letter from the Scots Estates to Philip of France. Record is silent concerning him for some years later, but on 18 March 1314-15 King Robert bestowed upon the church of Luss, in the Earl's domains, the privilege of girth of sanctuary for three miles on every side, both on land and water. On 27 October same year the King confirmed the Earl's grants to the monks of Paisley. King Robert also, on 14 July 1321, renewed the former grants of the earldom of Lennox, with the gift of free forestry already cited, and further, for the Earl's good deeds and services, restored to his keeping the Castle of Dumbarton, with the office of Sheriffship of the county. A special clause provided that if the Castle was reclaimed by the Crown from the Earl or his heirs against their will, a sum of five hundred merks sterling should be paid yearly to the Earl until he and his heirs again obtained possession.

Earl Malcolm was one of those who affixed their seals to the letter of 6 April 1320, directed to Pope John XXII, affirming the independence of Scotland. From that time till after the death of King Robert little or nothing is recorded of him, but like other patriotic Scotsmen he resented the domination by England which followed on Edward Baliol's victory at Dupplin. With the men of Lennox he followed Sir Archibald Douglas to the relief of the garrison of Berwick, and fell at the battle of Halidon Hill on 19 July 1333. The name of Earl Malcolm's wife has not been ascertained.

309 "He married, secondly, before 13 April 1370, Janet Keith or Barclay, widow of Sir David Barclay of Brechin. It was on her account he protested in 1390-91, regarding the earldom of Mar, that one-half of the earldom of Mar and of the lordship of Garioch pertained to his wife in right of heritage. She is therefore the most important link between the ancient and the modern Earls of Mar, and it may be well again to examine on what her claim rests. She is said to have been the daughter of Sir Edward Keith of Sinton and of Christian Menteith, daughter of Sir John Menteith (the second), Lord of Arran, Strathgartney, and Knapdale, by Ellen of Mar, daughter of Gratney, Earl of Mar. There is good evidence of the relationship of Ellen of Mar to Earl Gratney, and of her marriage to Sir John Menteith. There is also evidence that Christian Menteith, wife, first, of Sir Edward Keith, and, secondly, of Sir Robert Erskine, was the daughter of Sir John Menteith and Ellen of Mar. There is very positive proof that Sir Thomas Erskine married Janet, widow of Sir David Barclay (the second) of Brechin. But the proof that her name was Keith or that she was the daughter of Sir Edward Keith and Christian Menteith is very meagre, a fact of which no notice was taken in stating the evidence for the Mar Restitution Bill of 1885. The pedigree compiled in 1709 by Mr. George Erskine, bailie of Alloa, asserts that such was Janet's parentage, and it has been taken for granted that he was right. But there are only two or at most three facts on record which support the statement. The first is the evidence of Andrew Keith of Inverugy, who with Ingram Wintoun of Andat gave evidence in 1447 as to the then Sir Robert Erskine's relationship to the Earls of Mar. He was a man of eighty, born therefore about 1367, and must have known Sir Thomas Erskine's wife. He states that her name was Janet, and that she was the daughter of Sir Edward Keith, but says nothing about her mother. A second fact in favour of Janet Keith's descent is that she and her husband had possession of the lands of Pirchock and Ludquhairn, which had been granted by Sir John Menteith to Christian, his daughter, and Sir Edward Keith. A third fact referred to in the evidence for the Mar Restitution Bill is that an annuity of £100 from the Customs of Aberdeen paid to Sir Thomas Erskine from 1389 to 1403, was after his death paid to his widow as if in her own right, and in the later entries, when the sum was paid to her son after her death, the money is said to be payable in exchange for Arran which had belonged to Sir John Menteith. This was laid much stress on before the House of Lords, but the argument loses force from the fact that the same sum was paid to Sir Robert Erskine for many years before it passed to Sir Thomas, and in Sir Robert's case the payment coincides with his resignation of Ednam, as stated on page 594. It may be, however, that the payments to Dame Janet Barclay were held to relate to Arran. But though the evidence on the point is not strong, the family belief on the subject so constantly and consistently asserted may be accepted as being not only probable, but the simplest and most direct way by which Janet Erskine or her heirs could claim any interest in the earldom of Mar."

311 "He may have reigned alongside his supposed father Barisone I between about 1064/1065 and 1073 or so. He was probably the father (alternatively, uncle or brother) of his probable successor, Marianus I." [Wikipedia] Tanca, Andrew Giudice of Logudoro (I765)
 
312 "He migrated with his family in May, 1758 to the town of Western, now Warren, Worcester County, Mass. Their unexpected arrival was the cause of a 'Warning' that was thereupon set by the town of Western to that of Palmer whence this alarming tribe had come. But Isaac evidently quieted the fears of his prospective neighbors at Western for the records show that he remained there with a growing family for many years." [James W. Greene, citation details below.] Meacham, Isaac (I25883)
 
313 "He opposed Bruce in the War of Independence, deserting the national party, perhaps, as Lord Saltoun suggests, on account of the enmity of many of the Scottish nobles which his father's crime had provoked. He became liegeman to Edward I, by whom he was favoured and trusted, and to whose interests, and those of his son, Edward II, he steadfastly adhered during his life. When Robert the Bruce succeeded in establishing his authority as Scottish King, the possessions of Sir Alexander Abernethy were declared to be forfeited, and he became to all intents an Englishman. He was afterwards largely employed by the English King in his diplomatic service he was on several occasions sent as ambassador to France, and in 1313 visited the Papal Court in the same capacity. His death probably took place shortly after 1315, in which year he witnessed a charter granted by the Countess of Atholl, and before 1317. His wife's name is unknown."

314 "He opposed King John in 1216 and was one of the knights forced to surrender Belvoir Castle to the King upon the latter's threat to starve to death its owner and his prisoner, William d'Aubigny. As a result, Ralph's lands were forfeited, but returned in 1217. A collector of subsidies in Bedfordshire in 1242, he occasionally served as justice on special assizes in Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire."

316 "He prospered as steward of certain manors, probably in the service of William, Lord Vaux of Harrowden, & invested in lands; at the same time, for social reasons, he entered his 4 sons in a London guild, the Skinners Company." [The Blackmans of Knight's Creek, citation details below.]

317 "He reached a high position at Court and this may account for the reference in Shakespeare's King John to a de Burgh as the King's Chamberlain." [A Guide to the Parish Church of Saint Augustine of Canterbury, citation details below.]

According to Wikipedia on Walton Hall, West Yorkshire, the Thomas de Burgh who married Sara Neville was "the Steward of the Countess of Brittany, Duchess of Richmond." Early Yorkshire Families (citation details below) calls him "steward of the honour [of Richmond] under duchess Constance." 
de Burgh, Thomas (I2676)
 
318 "He rem. to Virginia prior to 1794, res. Prince Edwards Co. a few yrs; rem. to Richmond to engage in mercantile pursuits; later res. New Glasgow, Va., raised tobacco; killed on a trip to Richmond, 1823." [Record of the Descendants of John Bishop, citation details below.] Bishop, James (I18026)
 
319 "He removed to Westchester County but eventually returned to Southold. [...] Nathaniel Moore had his home at the head of the branch of Town Creek. He was first a shipwright then became an active master of vessels. In 1684 he was at Boston in the sloop Mayflower, and carried cargo to Lloyds Neck. He owned land in Westchester County. In 1691 he was tax collector for Southold." [Ancestors of Welding Ring, citation details below.] Moore, Nathaniel (I22543)
 
320 "He served as a churchwarden of Great Bromley in 1552 (a mark of local distinction)." [Don Stone, "Our Patrilineal Heritage".] Stone, Simon (I5819)
 
321 "He served at the siege of Bitham Castle in 1221, in the Welsh campaign of 1228, and in Brittany in 1230. He was certainly a knight when he took part in a tournament in July 1245." [The Ancestry of Dorothea Poyntzde Tateshale, Robert (I16603)

324 "He settled early in the Town of Bedford in the Province of New York, and was one of the resident proprietors of Bedford in 1692. On the eighth day of April, 1704, a Royal Patent, from the Governor-General of New York, was granted for the Town of Bedford, in which David Mead was mentioned as one of the original grantees."

325 "He settled with his family in Little Compton in 1743, and his first three children were baptized there. He had a slave who was a hatter, who would go to Providence and work there at his trade. The slave helped to support his owner in his old age." [Little Compton Families, citation details below.]

The entry for him in Little Compton Families, which calls him "Ephraim William Richmond", calls him a son rather than a grandson of Sylvester Williams and Elizabeth Rogers. But the entry for Judge William Richmond and his wife Anna Gray, including the passages quoted from William Richmond's will, makes it clear that Ephraim was their son, not Sylvester's.

Unreconciled is the fact that Little Compton Families says that Ephraim Richmond was born 5 May 1723 and that his father William Richmond and his mother Anna Gray married on 8 Jul 1724.

He joined the Barons against the King, and on 23 July 1264.had the custody of the Castle of Winchester, which he was ordered to surrender 3 June 1265.

"The [Vavasour] family, of which there were several branches, descended from Malger, who at the Domesday survey held land at Hazelwood, par. Tadcaster, Edlington and elsewhere of William de Percy, and who witnessed a charter of Alan de Percy to Whitby, 1100-c. 1115. William le Vavasour, king's justice, held 2 knights' fees of the old feoffment of William de Percy II in 1166, and half a knights' fee also of the old feoffment of the honour of Skipton, the Percy lands having been considerably extended and the Skipton lands in Craven having been acquired. In a charter to Bolton priory, 1175-90, with the consent of Robert and Malger his sons, he confirmed land in Yeadon of the gift of Robert son of Malger his uncle (avunculus). It can be deduced that William was a grandson of Malger the Domeday tenant, but it is uncertain whether this was by maternal or paternal descent. The balance of evidence, including Dodsworth's statement that William's father was named Malger, suggests that Malger of the Survey had two sons Robert and Malger, William being the heir of Robert who presumably died without issue."

Josiah Closson - Mary Williamson

Josiah Closson was born about 1655 probably in New England. Various family traditions indicate another generation in America before Josiah. The names of Alfred and Eleazeer and another brother who came from England have been mentioned. It has been supposed that his parents were Daniel Closson, who died, 2 July 1702, and his wife Elizabeth Closson, who died, 6 Dec. 1705. However, according to the Tiverton, Rhode Island records, the name, Daniel, does not appear again in the early generations of the family. [Note: Surname is a variant of Close, a topographic name for someone who lived by an enclosure of some sort, such as a courtyard in town or a farmyard in the country, originally from Late Latin clausum, past participle of claudere (to close, shut).]

The first record of Josiah Closson is found in the records of the town of Woburn, Massachusetts, 24 Jun 1676, and the journal of John Hull, Treasurer of War for the colony. (The name was spelled Clarson, Clopson, or Cloyson). He was a soldier in King Philip's war from the town of Woburn serving under Capt. Joseph Syll and garrisoned at Chelmsford, however he was not a citizen of the town when was enlisted. This means that he was probably a servant or hired laborer at the time.

It was the custom of the times for the towns to assess the payment of their own soldiers to the families left at home. Josiah was about 21 years old at the time and not married, so the question arises: In whose interest did Josiah "Clarson" assign his wages to in the town of Woburn?

There were 140 male citizens in Woburn when the war began. In Dec. 1675, 13 soldiers were impressed from Woburn and three more on 22 Mar. 1676. Later Woburn furnished 45 others. Of the 61 persons enlisted from Worburn 14 (Peter and John Bateman, Chamberlain, Clopson, Coddington, Crisp, Fletcher, Hood, the 2 Parkers, Roberts, Simpson, Wallis and Wilkinson) were probably not citizens of Woburn when the War began but were servants or hired laborers who were persuaded to enlist for the town. Of these, Clopson, Roberts, Wallis and Wilkinson returned and were taxed in Woburn after the War had ended.

Josiah did not stay in Woburn long as the Marshfield, Massachusetts records show that he married Mary Williamson there on 10 Mar 1678/1679. She was born 7 Jul 1654, the daughter of Timothy Williamson and Mary Howland. We do not know why Josiah went to Marshfield unless he met Capt. Timothy Williamson during the war. A daughter was born to Josiah and Mary, 1 Dec 1679 and their son, Timothy, 5 Jan 1680/1.

Col. Benjamin Church, the leader of the Plymouth forces in King Philip's War, owned land and had started to build a home in Little Compton before the War broke out. After the War Col. Church returned to Little Compton and continued the settlement. His associates were residents of Marshfield and Duxbury and it was natural that Josiah should follow his famous leader there. Thus, we find that

Josiah had moved to Little Compton about 1682 when the town was incorporated and opened for settlers. His second son, Nehemiah, was born there, 1 Feb. 1682/3. The "Grate Lots" or the main part of the town were given to the incorporators so he purchased several of the "15 acre lots" of which each of the proprietors drew one. He lived in the Quicksand Ponds area in the southeast part of Little Compton.

In 1682 a decree was issued to the elders of the colony churches to take turns and visit Seaconett (Little Compton) for the preaching of the word of God. The next year the Plymouth Court directed the town to raise £15. For the support of the Minister. The people held a town meeting and sent word to the Court that they would not raise the money. In Oct. 1685 the Court issued a peremptory order, thus: "To the Constable of Little Compton. Whereas the Town of Little Compton has – manifest their refusal of obedience not only in neglect but contempt – You are then in his Majesty's name required to summon the inhabitants of your town personally to appear at his Majesty's Court at Plymouth March next then and there to appear to answer the Contempt aforesaid." Josiah Closson was serving as constable at this time. The town was fined £20. for neglect and contempt. The fine was paid.

Deeds recorded at Taunton, Bristol Co. Mass.:

23 Nov 1694 – Matthew Howard of Little Compton for £6. New England money sells to Josiah Clauson of Little Compton land there east of Cole Brook Line, 1/2 part of a share formerly belonging to Josiah Cooke of Eastham.

31 Dec 1694 – Peter Taylor of Newport, Rhode Island, Cordwainer, for £7. 6s sells to Josiah Clauson of Little Compton, husbandman, 1/4 of a whole part or share in Little Compton lying east to the Cole Brook Line.

23 Dec. 1695 – William Southworth of Little Compton, Yeoman, for £23. New England money, sells to Josiah Clauson lot No. 19 (10A) among the Ten Acre Lots at Coxet River and 1/2 meadow lot at Coxet River in Little Compton.

All of the above deeds recorded 10 Jan. 1699/1700.

Josiah died intestate, 13 Feb. 1698/9, at 44 years of age. The Court appointed his widow Mary Clawson Administrix.

Inventory of the Estate dated 6 Mar. 1698/9 – £77. 15s 00d.

Debts owed by the deceased exibited 10 July 1700. – £10. 01s 05d.

Land as follows:

1 whole meadow lot on Barkere Neck No. 16 2 1/2 acres

1 whole 10 acre lot No. 1910 acres

1/2 of 15 acre lot No. 32 7 1/2 acres

1/2 of 10 acre lot No. 34 5 acres

1/2 of 20 acre lot No. 14 10acres

1/2 of 4 acre lot No. 13 2 acres

Total 37 acres

Under the law of inheritance all children are in one degree but the eldest son has an acknowledgment for his seniority of birth, which generally amounted to a double portion. The homestead appears to have remained intact for the widowed mother's use until after her death between 1721 and 1726 when distribution was made. Josiah Closson had 8 children, all were miners at the time of his death. As there is no further record of the first daughter or of his youngest son, Josiah Jr., it is believed they died before Josiah's death or at least before the distribution was made after their mother's death. As his estate seems to have been divided into seven parts, two for Timothy and one each for the other five children.

342 "He was a soldier in King Philip's War, and removed from Watertown to Sherborn before 1681, settling in the northern part of the town. [...] He was town clerk for five years and a selectman of Sherborn for ten years." ["The Early New England Coolidges," citation details below.] Coolidge, John (I23044)
 
343 "He was a wealthy yeoman whose will, dated 1506 and probated 1510/11, specified that his body should be buried 'in the chirche of moche Brymley.'" [Don Stone, "Our Patrilineal Heritage".] Stone, Simon (I5325)
 
344 "He was admitted pensioner at Emmanuel College, Cambridge 4 June 1613, and obtained a B.A. degree in 1616-7, and a M.A. degree in 1620. He was ordained a deacon 3 May 1621, and a priest 4 May 1621. He served as chaplain to Roger Townsend, Bart., and to Nathaniel Bacon, Knt. He served as Rector of Skirbeck, Lincolnshire, 1625-36. They immigrated to New England in 1636, where he became pastor at Lynn, Massachusetts." [Royal Ancestry]

"In early April 1636 he set sail for Massachusetts (Cotton Mather's Magnalia, 1853 ed., p. 505) with his second wife Elizabeth, his three year old son Samuel, and his daughter Dorothy. Samuel found the voyage so bad that he wrote of it, 'I would much rather have undergone six weeks' imprisonment for a good cause than six weeks of such terrible seasickness.' He landed at Boston on May 26th, and soon became pastor of Saugus, which was later re-named Lynn in his honor, for that was the name of the place in co. Norfolk, England where he spent several happy years as a young man." [John Roger Scott Whiting, citation details below]

On his decision to emigrate to New England, he "made the break complete by sacrificing his property in England and refusing to retain any part of his landed estates from which he would have received an annual income. 'I am going into the wilderness to sacrifice unto the Lord, & I will not leave a hoof behind me.'" [John Roger Scott Whiting, citation details below]

He appears to have been a genuine moderate among the Puritans, a believer in true religious liberty, and uncowed by the authoritarianism that pervaded the governance of the Bay Colony. He condemned those who wished to prohibit Episcopalians from celebrating Christmas, and also those who drove Ann Hutchinson and John Wheelwright out of Massachusetts. He refused, despite a order from Governor Endicott, to preach against the moral menace posed by (wait for it) men choosing to wear long hair. He engaged in a long legal wrangle with the county court of Ipswich over that court's declaration that "no cause is so purely ecclesiastical but the civil power may, in its way deal therein," a principle that Whiting flatly rejected. Even though his son John (d. 1689) returned to England to become an Anglican priest, joining the church hierarchy from which his father had been cast out, Samuel maintained his love and support for his son. Finally, the Rev. Samuel Whiting spoke in opposition to the early stirrings of Massachusetts witch mania.

"Samuel was appointed overseer of Harvard College in 1654, a post given to the most learned scholars in the colony. His interest in popular education was strong. He not only gave a college training to all his sons, and classical instruction to his daughters, but taught the catechism to the youth of his parish on Sundays at his house and gave gratuitous instruction in languages on week-days to all the children of the town who wanted to learn. It was his belief, which he acted upon, that the general spread of useful knowledge was essential for the making of good citizens and good Christians. Thus he made his contribution to the New England system of common schools." [John Roger Scott Whiting, citation details below]

William Whiting's Memoir of Rev. Samuel Whiting, D.D., and of His Wife, Elizabeth St. John (second edition, Boston: Rand, Avery, & Company, 1873) is a notably unreliable source. It draws heavily on the supposed diary of a certain Obadiah Turner, said to have been a parishioner of the Rev. Whiting; as noted by John Roger Scott Whiting (citation details below), this diary was in all likelihood a forgery concocted by James Robinson Newhall for an 1862 work about early Lynn, Massachusetts entitled Lin: or Jewels of the Third Plantation. Other defects of William Whiting's work include a badly flawed pedigree for the Rev. Samuel Whiting's wife, Elizabeth St. John.

347 "He was an adherent of the King in the Barons' War. In 1267 he was one of the keepers of the Isle of Wight. On 2 March 1267/8 he had a grant of a weekly market and yearly fair at his manor of King's Carswell, co. Devon. In 1277 he took part in the Welsh campaign, and was one of the barons of West Wales guaranteeing the peace with Rhys ap Meredith. The castle and honour of Lampadervaur, with all the King's lands in co. Cardigan, were committed to him in March 1277/8. In 1282 he was again in the Welsh wars. On 6 October 1283 he obtained a pardon for the arrears in his account when he was bailiff in Wales, and in January 1284/5 he had a protection on going beyond the seas. He was appointed on various commissions. In 1293 he was keeper of the forest of Braden. The following year he was appointed marshal of the army sent against the Welsh, for that expedition, during pleasure." [Complete Peerage IX: 4-5.] de Moels, Roger (I8158)
 
348 "He was an original proprietor of Hartford, Connecticut, though he seems not to have gone there with the first settlers. He was, however, a member of the Hartford contingent which took part in the Pequot War, 1637, and received a lot there in Soldiers' Field in recognition of his services." [Hale, House and Related Families]

"[He] was a Patentee of Connecticut Colony named in the Royal Charter of 1662." [Hale, House and Related Families, entry on his son-in-law William Pratt]

In The Great Migration Begins (citation details below), Robert Charles Anderson points out that, despite many assertions by others, no solid evidence establishes that the John Clark who arrived at Cambridge in 1633 is the same man as the John Clark who died at Milford in 1674. It's clear that the emigrant of 1633 removed to Hartford sometime after the spring of 1636 (as Anderson observes, "almost the entire population of Cambridge moved to Hartford in 1635 and 1636"). And it's clear that the man who later died in Milford first appears at Hartford in about 1637. But that they were the same person is not clear.

He removed to Saybrook by 1647, where he held many public offices between then and the mid-1660s. He appears to have been at Norwich for a short time; in 1665 he was admitted to the church at Milford, recorded as being dismissed from Norwich. There is no evidence that he was related to the already-present Milford family of Clark.

His will mentions his daughter Elizabeth Pratt, husband of William Pratt.

His daughters all left issue; and one of them, Susanna, left descendants, now living in Lexington, by the name of Chandler, who still preserve some relics of their ancestor.

After the Restoration of Charles II in 1661, many who had benefited from the Commonwealth and who were likely to be punished by the reinstated Bishop Wren sought greater economic opportunity in the American colonies. According to a handwritten note on the back of a portrait of Thomas Leggett (1755-1843), painted in 1843, Gabriel arrived in New York [New Amsterdam, until 1664] in 1661."

From Archaeological/Historical Sensitivity Evaluation: Proposed Fish Market Relocation, Hunts Point, Bronx, New York by William I. Roberts and Paula M. Crowley, prepared for Urbitran, 71 West 23rd St, New York NY 10010, February 2000:

[Gabriel Leggett's father-in-law John] Richardson died leaving his property to his wife Martha to use during her lifetime and dispose of as she saw fit. Martha received all housing and the orchard, all moveables within and without, all livestock, all land, all the meadow on the planting neck and all the Long Neck running southward from Thomas Hunt's new house to the Sound. His son-in-law, Thomas Hadley received a pasture of three acres and a divided meadow above the planting neck. His three daughters each received 200 acres of land apiece. On October 17, 1687 Hadley conveyed to Thomas Williams, eight acres given to him by Richardson.

Martha [(Mead)] Richardson, around July 1683 married Captain [Thomas] Williams. Gabriel Leggett had married [Martha Mead and John] Richardson's daughter, Elizabeth. Richardson had built a grist mill and a saw mill on the Bronx River in 1671, and Leggett helped him run the saw mill. Williams had no use for a step-son-in-Iaw, and Leggett had no use for the new step-father-in-law. Leggett attempted to evict Williams from the Richardson house, and failed. Owning a mill was an important economic, social and political position during colonial times. As a result of owning one of two mills in southern Westchester County, Williams became a member of Lieutenant Governor Leisler's Council. When the French and the Indians attacked Schenectady in February 1690, Richard Ponton and Williams called upon the Westchester militia company for volunteers. Leggett spoke against this, Ponton told Leggett to shut up, and Leggett called Williams "the father of rogues". Leggett went further and stole a hog of Williams, and then later, when drunk, told Williams he was a thief, murderer, and a liar. Williams obtained a warrant against Leggett, and Leggett was hauled into court. Martha Richardson/Williams [Martha Mead] prevailed upon her husband and son-in-law to shake hands and settle the problem. Leggett did so, returning the hog, paying court costs and apologizing.

At this point in time, the Leisler Rebellion occurred, and was put down by the new English governor. In April 1691 the grand jury indicted Thomas Williams, along with others, for high treason. The grand jury found "that he had no property to their knowledge that could be confiscated", and sentenced him to be drawn and quartered. Leisler and his son-in-law were executed, while the new governor held off on the others. A new Assembly pardoned most of Leisler's people, excepting 30 individuals, including Williams. In April 1692, the Queen agreed to pardon Williams and his associates, if they asked for it. By September 1692, Williams was still in jail, refusing to petition. In 1693 King William ordered their release and a royal pardon was finally issued in March 1694, after the governor petitioned.

Gabriel Leggett did not sit still during those four years. In May 1691 Leggett sued Thomas Stratham, the sheriff who arrested him for the hog incident, for £200 for assault and false imprisonment. The Westchester Court decided that Stratham should pay Leggett £25. Ponton, of the militia, agreed to post bond. In October of 1692, Leggett still was not paid, and the Court of Sessions had to intervene in the quarrel between Leggett, Stratham and Ponton. Leggett went to the New York City Supreme Court, suing Ponton for £25. Ponton never showed at court and the court ordered Ponton to pay Leggett £50. Richard Ponton, in turn, sued Thomas Stratham in the Court of Common Pleas in Westchester County in order to pay Leggett. In December 1692, the court ordered Stratham to pay Ponton £40. Since Statham could not pay, he was jailed with the new sheriff to seize his land for sale. In 1695, Ponton still had not paid the debt, and Leggett sold Ponton's debt to Thomas White, who went the colony's Supreme Court, which ordered Ponton to pay in October 1695.

Thomas Williams, upon his release, forgot the handshake, and pressed criminal charges against Leggett. In December 1693, in Westchester court, Leggett freely admitted he stole the hog, but that the Legislature's act of May 1691, pardoning all New Yorkers for crimes committed during Leisler's Rebellion covered his act. The court respectfully disagreed, observing the hog incident occurred before Leisler's Rebellion. Leggett was sentenced to pay court charges, pay a year's security for his good behavior or go to jail. Leggett, irrepressible as usual, appealed to the New York colony's Supreme Court, insisting that there were errors in the trial. Since this august body had sentenced Williams to death in the first place, they ruled in Leggett's favor in October 1696.

From Early Settlers of West Farms, Westchester County, N.Y. (citation details below):

Old Gabriel had with his boldness evidently a violent spirit, certainly so according to the testimony of Capt. Williams in his petition to the Governor, which I will in place transcribe; but we may remember Capt. Williams was angry when he wrote it, and was himself no doubt extravagant in his allegations. The trouble between these two men arose partly from personal causes, but was chiefly on account of political differences.

After the death of her husband, Martha Richardson married Capt. Thos. Williams. Williams was by no means an inferior person, but was rather a prominent man in the community and in the Province. He was born in 1631; married Martha Richardson about 1784; died intestate and without living issue, 1798. Martha Richardson Williams died about 1694.

By John Richardson's will the bulk of his property was left to his wife during life without other conditions. She was a rich widow, and her marriage to Captain Williams was apparently a great trial to the heirs; but what seemed to exasperate Gabriel the most was that Capt. Williams would not vacate the house after Martha's death; as appears by his petition to Gov. Fletcher.

The chief cause of trouble was political however. The Province was rent, communities, families, nearest friends divided as Leislerians and anti-Leislerians. After the dethronement of James II, and before the official notice in the Province of the Proclama tion of William and Mary as Sovereigns had been received, Capt. Jacob Leisler seized the Government of the Province of New York and was appointed Commander-in-Chief by the Committee of Safety. There is no occasion to repeat this chapter of Colonial history, enough that on the arrival of Sloughter, duly commissioned Governor, the anti-Leislerians found their revenge by securing Leisler's sentence to death, and he was executed in New York, May 16, 1691.

Gabriel Leggett was a strong opponent of Leisler's claims and was by his nature, no doubt, an extreme partisan. When, therefore, Leisler called for volunteers to go to Canada against the French, he resisted the call, as appears by the following records of the Court: "June 6 & 7, 1693. The court orders that the Sherrife shall give notice to Capt. Ponton, Thos. Statham, and Gabriel Leggett, with what witnesses they have, to appear at the Courthouse at two o'clock to Indeavor to put a period to wht differences is amongst them." One witness testifies "after scurrelous words used by Gabriel Leggett to Capt. Williams, calling him a liar &c. Mrs. Williams spoke to him to interceed with her husband to pas by or putt up the difference between them for her daughter's sake &c." Williams himself, aged about 62 years, testifies : "The first ocation of this difference was a hogg took violently from me." Afterward Capt. Leisler sent an order to Capt. Ponton "to send him some men to goe to Albany for their assistance against the French, also the said Williams to assist in taking and sending the men, upon which the Town's Company was called together, and Capt. Ponton asked them who was willing to go volunteers for said expedition, and Gabriel Leggett answered they was fools if any of them did go, upon which Capt. Ponton commanded him to hold his peace, but he still continued abusing the deponent and said: 'here comes the father of rogues,' and many other scurrulous words, upon which I gott a warrent against him &c."

Edward Collier testified: "He writt ye warr" and Capt. Richard Ponton signed it, and Capt. Williams was the complaynant, and Thos. Stathem was the Sheriffe and served it; and after this at a court held at Thos. Baxter's house in the month of March, 1689, there was Gabriel Leggett and his wife, and Capt. Williams and his wife, and they were talking about making up the difference as I suppose, but what their agreement was I could not tell, nor upon what terms, but I heard yt Gabriel was to pay the fees, & that deponent turned his fees over to Thos. Statham, but never received any, neither do I know whether Statham reed any of Leggett; soe after Col. Sloughter was come over Governor in May following, the sd Gabriel took out a writt against Thos. Statham for an assault and false imprisonment to answer him at the next court of Sessions in June, and Capt. Ponton was Statham's baile, and some time afterwards William Chadderton came to my house and desired me to goe with him to Mr. Barnes to write a bond for his brother Stathem, for his brother Stathem and Gabriel were agreed, and Thos. Statham was to pay to Gabriel Leggatt £25, soe I went to Mr. Barnes with him, and writt part of one bond, and Gabriel made scruple about it, and would not take his own bond without further security, soe I writt another, and Capt. Ponton and Mr. Chadderton was bound with him jointly and severally, and they signed, sealed and delivered it." Samuel Hitchcock testifies "that Capt. Williams and Mrs. Williams was together, and Gabriel Leggett, and Mrs. Williams desired him to interceed with Mr. Williams to forgive and pass by the fault of Gabriel for her daughter and children's sake, upon wh deponent spoke to Capt. Williams, and also Mrs. Williams said, 'Good Gabriel, doe not goe to law,' and I said the same, and Gabriel seemed willing, and said he was sorry for it, and they let the action fall." Thos. Baxter, aged 39, testifies "when they came to the court they were talking about an agreement, and Mrs. Williams spoke to him to persuade her husband he should not take advantage of the law against Gabriel. I fetched a gallon of cider to drink with them, and to forward the agreement, and Gabriel Leggett did acknowledge he was sorry he had abused him in such words, as he said, for he did not know any such thing of him, and they did drink friends together in burnt wine and other drink, and the said Gabriel was to pay the clerk and sheriff their feese. Capt. Williams and he shook hands with one another, and did promise to live peaceably."

"Capt. Barnes upon his oath as a Justice of the peace saith that Capt. Williams and Gabriel Leggett being at his house was drinking together and he thinks Gabriel was a little overtaken in drink, but he called Capt. Williams thief, murderer & lyer, & he would prove it, and repeated over many times, upon which Williams being provoked got out a writt against him, and arrested Leggett, and several persuaded Leggett to get security, but he would not, soe went to prison, and there he remained till the next morning. Some time after I asked Leggett how he came on with Capt. Williams, and he told me they were agreed."

All this seems very small, as very bad, but Gabriel Leggett was not "tight" enough, nor such a fool as not to know what he was doing. He knew Leisler was ruling without authority; he believed that soon his rule would come to a disastrous end, that then all his acts, and those of his subordinates, would be declared illegal. He would not accept bail when illegally arrested and imprisoned for he was shrewd enough to know that bye and bye he could make his personal and political enemies "whistle for it" and that he did by heavy penalties for false imprisonment, as will presently appear by their petitions to Gov. Fletcher from in prison.

Meanwhile Capt. Williams in small revenge takes action by that matter of "a hogg took violently from me" as above mentioned. Later in the same year (1693) he has Gabriel Leggett indicted for taking "a barrow hogg." For reasons which will appear he would not deny the charge, and the court found the fact acknowledged was done and acted in the time "yt Sir Edmond Andros was Govr of the Province and before ye time of ye late disorders" (all offenses before these disorders had by general act been pardoned) therefore finds "that ye sd Gabriel Leggett for ye above offense shall pay ye charges of this court ocationed by the above indictment, and also before two of their Majties Justices of ye peace of this county give in sufficient security for his good behavior for one whole yeare and untill ye above costs be paid and security given as above ye sd Gabriel Leggett to remain a prisoner within Sheriff's custody."

Let there be no astonishment at these proceedings. The court records are full of them. As said, such constituted almost the only amusement and entertainment to be found, but Gabriel had a revengeful purpose, it is feared, in pleading to an offense he had not committed, for from the proceedings of Supreme Court, April 6, 1695, was "granted a writ of error in the case of Gabriel Leggett who was erroneously indicted for stealing a barrow hogg from Thos. Williams." It does not appear what use Gabriel Leggett made of this finding, but of his false imprisonment the use will soon be made evident. I must first, however, write out a very singular petition which I find on record addressed by Thos. Williams to Gov. Fletcher. Its representations of Gabriel Leggett are very unlovely, but we may remember that they were made by an angry adversary, and were no doubt intended to counteract influences in operation against himself, and arrest action the culmination of which will appear in the appeal following this.

"To his excellency Benjamin ffletcher Capt. Genl and Gov of the Province of New York, &c. The humbell pittn of Capt. Thos. Williams of the Town of Westchester &c. To the Excellency Showeth the Gov Pettr's wife be lately by God's Providence taken from him by which means he is left in a sad condition, and his trouble further ogmented by one Gabriel Legatt that liveth by him who dayle abuseth yr Pettr by his coming to his house in a violent manner cursing, and swearing, and with other exorable threatening to hold him out of his house he is now quietly possessed of both in right of his late wife deceased relict of John Richardson deceased and the State by will and due administration thereof settled.

This remarkable paper is inscribed "Oct. 31, 1695, The within petition is referred to the Judge & Justices of the County of Westchester p. order David Jamison, Jr."

Note: — Thos. Williams, with others, was condemned at a court of Oyer and Terminer, for treasonable and felonious crimes in establishing a recruiting office under Leisler, against which, as we have seen, Gabriel Leggett protested, and for which he was arrested, etc. His petition to Gov. Fletcher after 17 months imprisonment is contained in Doc. Hist., Vol. II, p. 413. I do find the petition of Thos. Statham, which is as follows: "To his Excellency, &c., &c. The humble petition of Thos. Statham of the Co. of Westchester. Showeth unto your Excellency that in the time of the late disorder by the importunity of Richd Ponton of Westr and others, your petitioner did take a commission under Jacob Leisler as Sheriff of sd county, not knowing otherwise but that the said Jacob Leisler had received letters patent from their Majesties, King William & Queen Mary, authorizing the said Jacob to do the same as by those which were conversant with him did report for undoubted truths. Whereupon the 24th day of Feb. in the 2d year of their Majs' reign, one Gabriel Legatt of sd County did abuse one Thomas Williams pretended councellor to the sd Jacob Leisler in a very gross manner whereby the sd Richd Ponton one of the Justices then made by the sd Leisler in sd county of Westchester took upon himself (upon the complaint of the sd Thomas Williams) to issue out a warrant of commitment directed to your poor petitioner, and commanding him as he would answer the contrary at his peril to Take the said Gabriel Legat into safe custody, which was done by yr Excellency's poor Petitioner, not knowing better. And the said Gabriel was under confinement about tenn hours, and then let out by order of the Justices. Whereupon a court of Sessions held at Westchester in March the next following the sd Gabriel Legatt appeared and did acknowledge his fault, and all was past by and forgiven. Yet nevertheless the said Gabriel Legatt in May after the arrival of Coll. Sloughter commenced an action against yr poor Petitioner for a Assault and false imprisonment done to him about the occasion aforesaid to the value of Two hundred pounds, which was executed by Benjamin Collier high Sheriff whereby he was in undoubted fear of being utterly undone, and being a prisoner, and having no friend to councell withall, did sign to an obligation to pay him twenty five pounds which was the demand of the sd Gabriel. Afterwards the sd Richard Ponton by his refractory language against the Government was by a special Warrent carried down to New York and there put under confinement in ye Citty Hall and there did remain some time after your Excellency's arrival, and then was released, upon which the said Gabriel commenced an action against the said Rd, by reason the sd Richard was bound with your pettitioner jointly and severally to sd Gabriel (wasn't he far seeing and sharp, if not benevolent?) for the payment of the aforesd sum of twenty five pounds. Whereupon the sd Gabriel obtained judgment against sd Richard for fifty pounds by default at the Supreme Court held at New York on October last past and execution thereupon the sd Richards estate. There upon the sd Richard commenced an action against your poor petitioner and obtained a judgment against him for forty pounds and costs at a court of common pleas held at Westchester on the 8th and 9th days of Dec. and still doth remain in Sheriff's custody and do expect daylie execution to be issued out against him. Therefore without remedy by order of the common law to the utter undoing of your poor petitioner, his wife and children, unless your Excel's gracious favour be to him shewed in this behalf to consider pemises, and accordingly to grant your petr such relief herein as to your Excellency may seem most agreeable to justice and equity. And your Petitioner as in duty he is bound will ever pray."

He was present when John Baliol swore fealty to Edward I at Newcastle-on-Tyne 20 November 1292. From King Edward I he had a grant of the annual value of 100 merks, and on 29 June 1294 was summoned with other Scottish nobles to assist England against the French, but instead, at a Parliament held at Scone, they resolved to enter into an alliance with France against Edward. On the outbreak of the War of Independence he was one of the garrison who defended the Castle of Dunbar in 1296 against Edward I, and on its surrender, on 25 March 1296, was sent a prisoner to the Tower of Loudon.

Pardoned in 1313, along with his son Eudes, for their involvement in the death of Piers Gaveston.

"His opposition to Edward II's government included involvement in the summary execution of Piers Gaveston in 1312, for which his proposed pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in 1317 may have been intended as an act of atonement. William's talents, however, were expressed mainly through military exploits. From 1301 he saw frequent service against the Scots. He also campaigned in Ireland and Gascony and had, too, experience in the law. In May 1330 he was justice in eyre in Derbyshire but had to be replaced before the end of the month because of ill health. Although his disease was believed to be incurable, he did recover, and continued to play a role in local administration and on the king's council (1337)." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography

The King took his homage and he had livery of his grandfather's lands, 7 Feb. 1326/7, being then aged 26 and more. He did homage and fealty to the Archbishop of York for his lands in Burnby, 11 Feb. 1326/7. On 20 Feb. 1327/8, after the death of Joan, wife of Hamon de Mascy, he obtained possession of the messuage, &c., in Elmton, above mentioned, as the right heir of Edmund Deincourt, his grandfather. He was sum. for Military Service against the Scots from 5 Apr. (1327) 1 Edw. III to 23 Dec. (1355) 29 Edw. III, to Councils from 24 Aug. (1336) 10 Edw. III to 20 June (1358) 32 Edw.

A commander at the battle of Neville's Cross, 17 Oct. 1346, being one of those who were thanked, 20 Oct. following, for their services. On 14 May 1347 he was sum. to join the King before Calais. He was the principal warder of the King of France when that monarch was a prisoner in England, 29 July 1359 to 24 May 1360, at Somerton Castle, co. Lincoln(c), and afterwards at Berkhamstead Castle, the King being removed to the latter place in Mar. 1359/60, by order of the Council, there being a scare of a French invasion. He m, before 26 Mar. 1326, Milicent, 1st da. of Sir William La Zouche, of Harringworth, Northants [Lord Zouche], by Maud, da. of Sir John Lovel, of Titchmarsh, Northants, and Minster Lovell, Oxon [Lord Lovel]. He d. 2 June 1364. His widow's dower was ordered to be assigned, July I364. She d. 11 June 1379.

(c) King John's removal to Somerton was preceded by a deplorable incident. For certain evil-doers broke into the Castle, tapped the casks of wine which had been placed there for the King's use, drew off (extraxerunt) most of the wine, and left the taps running (fausetta aperta), so that the rest of the wine was lost, in nostri contemptum et grave dampnum ac contra pacem nostram.

[Complete Peerage V:639-44]

[footnote in CP to the above:] Maud Lungespee notified the King that John Giffard had abducted her from her manor of Canford, Dorset, and taken her against her will to his castle of Brimpsfield, and there detained her. John appeared before the King, and professed himself ready to prove that he did not abduct her against her will, and offered a fine of 300 marks for the marriage already contracted, as it was said, between them, provided she made no further complaint against him. On 10 March 1270/1 the King ordained that if she were not content, the said fine should be void,and John should stand his trial at a month from Easter. And as she was too unwell to appear before the King, commissioners were sent to inquire into the truth of the matter, and to certify the King thereof. John and Maud, and her Ist husband, William Lungespee, were all descended from Richard fitz Ponce. Why John Giffard should have referred to himself as being of the race of Le Lungespee as in the proof of age mentioned above he is said to have done--is not explicable; unless, indeed, the sobriquet was derived from the family of Clifford.

386 "He [John Lestrange] is said to have married Lucy, daughter of Robert Tregoz." [Complete Peerage XII/1:350-1]

CP uses the "is said to have married" formulation, above. Richardson's Royal Ancestry, in the entry TREGOZ 3 (Sir Robert de Tregoz m. Juliane de Cantelowe), says "they had one son, John, Knt. [Lord Tregoz], and allegedly one daughter, Lucy (said to be wife of John le Strange, of Knockin, Shropshire." But having her be the daughter of that particular Robert de Tregoz doesn't work chronologically at all; this alleged Tregoz descent is only plausible if we make her the daughter of his father, Robert de Tregoz who m.

Martha testified that she did not know the father of the child because she 'had bine abused in [a] fainting fitt.'

400 "Her name Ol'ga derives from Old Scandinavian Helga, and she is called Helga in Byzantine sources. Her christening name was Helen. She was the first of the princely family to accept Christianity and much later she was made a saint as 'precursor' of the faith in Rus. As the widow of Igor, she served as regent during the minority of her son Svyatoslav. Her official visit to Constantinople circa 955 is related in the Primary Chronicle and also by the Emperor Constantine, the differences between the two sources illustrating nicely the folk character of the early Rus annals.

407 "His father died at a young age, and Demetrios' oldest brother Georgios became head of the family. Georgios corresponded with Eirene, daughter of Anna Komnene (discussed above) and Nikephoros Bryennios, and arranged for Demetrios to be raised in Eirene's household as a companion for one of Eirene's sons and as a family servant. Anna was probably then spending much time at the Kecharitomene Convent, founded by her mother, but not yet permanently living there. 'The convent Kecharitomene, overlooking the Golden Horn, gave our historian the serenity she probably never enjoyed in the imperial palace.' According to her eulogy by Georgios Tornikes, she gathered about her there 'a philosophic circle whose work she inspired and directed.' Anna's daughter Eirene, widowed at a fairly early age, collaborated with her mother. Thus Demetrios Tornikes, raised in Eirene's household, was near the center of Anna Komnene's intellectual orbit. Demetrios no doubt also absorbed much about etiquette and protocol as a child.

The feudal importance of the family was increased by a grant from Henry I of some of the fees of Godric dapifer. The donor of Edwardstone church became a monk at Abingdon, and married certainly twice, 1stly, possibly an heiress of Godric; later, Muriel, widow of the father of William de Bachetone, and daughter of Piers de Valoignes, sheriff of Essex and Herts in 1086, by Aubrey, sister of Eudo dapifer."

420 "Hugh de Mortimer attested a charter by Gerold, Abbot of St. Lucien at Beauvais [1100-28], in the time of Stephen, Count of Aumale. When King Stephen, circa 1140, granted to the Earl of Leicester the town and castle of Hereford et lotum comitatum Herefordisc., the fees of Hugh de Mortimer were with others excepted. In 1144 he initiated the reconquest of the Marches after the revolt of the Welsh on the death of Henry I, by successfully reoccupying the cantreds of Maelienydd and Elfael, and repairing the castles of Cwmaron and Colwen. In 1145 he captured and imprisoned the Welsh prince Rhys ap Howel, and in 1146 he slew Meredith, son of Madog ap Idnerth, late chieftain of Elfael and Maelienydd. In 1148 he blinded his prisoner Rhys ap Howel." [Complete Peerage]

"The two Hughs are not always easily distinguishable in the sources, but it seems clear that the elder Hugh was involved in local Herefordshire feuds arising from the contest between Stephen and Matilda. That he was on the whole a supporter of Stephen may be deduced from that king's exception of Mortimer's lands in Herefordshire from the grant of that shire to Robert, earl of Leicester, probably made in 1144. He was also involved, and with some success, in episodes in the long struggle between the marcher lords and the Welsh for the cantrefs of Maelienydd and Elfael in Powys.

429 "In 1130 Humphrey (II) de Bohun still owed relief for his father's land, plus 400 marks for the purchase of a royal stewardship. As steward he witnessed charters of Henry I towards the end of his reign, and also King Stephen's Oxford charter of liberties in 1136. However, he deserted to the Empress Matilda on her arrival in England in 1139 and successfully defended his castle at Trowbridge against the king. In 1144 he received from the empress confirmation of his lands and of his 'stewardship in England and Normandy', with a grant of other estates. He was loyal to the Angevins in the civil war, witnessing as steward both for the empress in the 1140s and for Henry II, before and after his accession as king, between 1153 and 1157. However, during the year 1158 he was deprived of former royal demesne which he was holding in Wiltshire. None of the royal charters he attested can with certainty be dated to 1158 or later, and it may be that he fell out of the king's favour. On the other hand he was present at the promulgation of the constitutions of Clarendon in January 1164. He was dead by Michaelmas 1165, when his son Humphrey (III) de Bohun owed 300 marks as relief."

In 1189 he left on crusade (probably with Philippe, count of Flanders) to recapture Jerusalem, which had been taken by Saladin after the Battle of Hattin in 1187. He fought between Jaffa and Ascalon on 6 November 1291 and was helped by Richard the Lionheart himself. In April 1192 he was appointed, with Henri II, comte de Champagne and Guillaume Cayeux, to offer the crown of Jerusalem to Conrad, marchese de Monferrato. However Conrad was assassinated on 26 April, and on 5 May Otton attended the wedding of Conrad's widow Isabella d'Anjou, queen of Jerusalem, and Henri II, comte de Champagne, who became king of Jerusalem by right of his wife.

440 "In 1277 he acknowledged that the service of one knight's fee was due from the barony of Shipton Montagu, to be rendered by himself and a serjeant, in the expedition against Llewelyn. In 1280 he was in prison for a forest offence. He was engaged in the Welsh wars in 1282 and later, and in July 1287 was thanked by the King for his service in West Wales, being ordered in Dec. to go thither again instead of to North Wales. On 28 June 1283 he was summoned to attend the assembly at Shrewsbury. In. 1290 he made a settlement of his estates by surrendering them to the King, and receiving a re-grant with remainders to his sons William and Simon. In June 1294 he was summoned to attend the King on urgent affairs concerning Gascony, whither he was sent immediately, and where he apparently stayed till the beginning of 1297. While on this service, in 1296, when the English were besieged in Bourg-sur-Mer, he took a relief ship through the line of French, vessels and brought about the raising of the siege. In November 1298 inquiry was ordered into the crimes of men alleging themselves to be in his service, to his scandal and loss. In 1299 and in many later years he was summoned for service against the Scots; in September of that year he was appointed custodian of Corfe Castle, being replaced in February 1300/1 by Henry (de Lacy), Earl of Lincoln. He was summoned to Parliament from 29 December 1299 to 16 October 1315, by writs directed Simoni de Monte Acuto, whereby he is held to have become Lord Montagu. In July 1300 he took part in the siege of Carlaverock, where he brought up the rear of the third division, and after the capture of the castle was sent to Ireland, probably for provisions. On 12 February 1300/1 he joined in the Barons' letter to the Pope, as Simon, lord of Montagu. In October 1302 he went again to Gascony with John de Hastinges, and was still there in 1303. At Thurlbear, in June 1304, Aufrica de Connoght, heiress of the Isle of Man, quitclaimed all her rights therein to Simon de Montagu, knight. On 30 January 1306/7 he was made captain and governor of the fleet, against the Scots, and was in Scotland, with his son William, in February, being consequently excused attendance in Parliament. He was summoned to attend the Coronation of Edward II, 25 February 1307/8. He appears to have been in favour with the new King, for in 1309 he was made custodian of Beaumaris Castle. In August 1310 he was again admiral of the fleet against the Scots. He had licence to crenellate his house at Yardlington, Somerset, in 1313. In August 1315 he was ordered to remain in the North during the winter campaign. In these later years he was appointed on various commissions--of the peace, oyer and terminer, &c."

Both had letters of protection going abroad in July 1287 and June 1288. In 1294 he served in the short campaign in Gascony; in 1295 was again under the Earl of Gloucester, with his brother Thomas; and in 1296 was marshal of the army in Scotland. In 1297 he was active in public service. He was summoned to Parliament from 6 February 1290 to 26 August 1307, by writs directed Johanni Lovel and later Johanni Lovel de Tichmershe, whereby he is held to have become Lord Lovel. He was summoned to the campaign in Scotland in 1298, in which Edward defeated Wallace at Falkirk, but did not serve; summonses to serve in person were continued till his death. In 1301, as lord of Docking, he joined in the Barons' letter to the Pope. From March 1302/3 he was again in Scotland on the King's service, and his wife with him. In July 1304 it was 'the nobleman, Sir John Lovel, knight,' to whom Sir William Oliphant surrendered the keys of Stirling Castle after the fierce three months' siege. In November following he had licence to crenellate his mansion of Titchmarsh. In 1306 he was lieutenant of the Earl Marshal of England. He was summoned to attend the Coronation of Edward II in February 1307/8, and in 1309 to a Council at Westminster, in which year he joined in the letter to the Pope.

If this is so, it suggests that the younger John Wentworth was born in approximately 1415-1420, thus about ten or fifteen years old when his wardship and marriage were sold in 1430 and 1431. This would also suggest that the elder John Wentworth died in same range, 1415-1420.

With his connections in high places (in his will the Earl of Dunfermline and Lord Abercorn were asked to be patrons 'of his poor wife and bairns and to see them not oppressed or wronged') John Lockhart had ambitions to be more than a minor Ayrshire laird. For centuries his kinsmen the Lockharts of Bar had been a powerful family at Galston but in 1609 their fortunes had declined, the last laird, George Lockhart and his wife living in rented rooms in Ayr and unable to pay the thirteen merks owing to the schoolmaster for teaching their two sons and daughter in 1606.

469 "In the published Winthrop Papers we can trace the course of an early (and somewhat comical) cattle drive which took place in 1648, starting at the 'ranch' of John Winthrop Junior at Pequot (later New London), moving through Rhode Island and on to Roxbury. The correspondence includes two letters penned by Joseph Wise which show that he was literate, although not university educated. Before the cattle could be delivered to Wise for slaughter and sale, John Winthrop Senior, John Winthrop Junior and Roger Williams were all involved (Winthrop Papers 5:240, 242, 264 f., 270, 280, 341 f., 375; three unpublished letters from Joseph Wise to John Winthrop Junior, dated 19 March 1650/1. 12 Aug. 1654 and 1 Nov. 1654, are in the Winthrop Papers at the Massachusetts Historical Society, Boston).

Moreover, that, by this stroke being much wounded, he cryed out so loud, that his Friends in the House arose; and finding him extreamly tormented with the pain of his wound, advised him to confess himself to a Priest, and vow to restore them to their former possession. Furthermore, that having so done, his pain ceased; and that, in accomplishment of his vow (accompanied with Sir Walter de Somervile, and the rest) he forthwith rode to Oldbury; and craving pardon of the Nuns for the injury done, brought them back to Polesworth; desiring, That himself and his friend Sir Walter de Somervile, might be reputed their Patrons; and have burial for themselves and their heirs, in the Abby, viz.

483 "It was part of the traditional lore of the Welsh bards that Gruffudd ap Cynan had made certain regulations to govern their craft, and his name was used to give authority to the 'statute' drawn up in connection with the Caerwys eisteddfod of 1523. There is nothing to substantiate this tradition, but it is not unreasonable to suggest that Gruffudd may have brought bards and musicians with him from Ireland and that these may have had some influence on the craft of poetry and music in Wales. He may also have made some formal changes in the bardic organization. It is clear that a genuine and persistent tradition to this effect existed in the 16th century. It is perhaps worth noting that the History mentions the death in battle of Gellan, Gruffudd's harpist, in 1094."

At least one generation is here omitted. The Elis living in 1221 was son and heir of Elis III, by Maud, daughter of Morice fitz Robert fitz Hardinge, of Berkeley: which Elis III owed 100 marks 'pro fine terre sue' in 1166 and died before Michaelmas 1190, when William le Mareschal owed 140 marks for the custody of the lands of Elis Giffard. Elis III was son and heir of Elis II (who became a monk in Gloucester Abbey), by Berta (living 1167), sister of Walter de Clifford, of Clifford and Glasbury, and daughter of Richard fitz Ponce. In 1130 Elis II rendered account of 100 marks of silver for the relief of his father's lands, being son and heir of Elis I, by Ala, his wife.
