    Notes:

    Many sources, including the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, have her as a daughter of Philip Champernoun, but Brice Claggett (citation details below) and Neil P. Thompson argued convincingly that he has to have been, instead, her first husband, after whom she married John Astley.

    As "Kat" Champernoun she was governess to the young Lady Elizabeth and, in the words of Brice Clagett (citation details below), "is credited with providing her with the foundation of her excellent education. On Elizabeth's accession in 1558 Kat, now Mrs. Astley, became chief gentlewoman of the privy chamber, and was one of the Queen's closest confidantes until her death in 1565."

    Notes:

    "She […] had a position in the households of queens Anne of Cleves and Katherine Parr, while her sister-in-law Lady Berkeley was governess to Princess Elizabeth. A committed protestant, with her sister Katherine Raleigh she is reported to have protected the persecuted reformers in Devon. In the summer of 1546 Lady Denny (and by extension her husband) was one of the court protestants whom religious conservatives tried to incriminate through accusations wrung from Anne Askew, a distant relative of Joan's uncle Sir Gawain Carew; Anne would admit only that Lady Denny's servant had brought her money, and Sir Anthony survived as a leading figure among Seymour's associates at the close of the reign." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, citation details below]

    Joan married Anthony Denny about 4 Feb 1538. Anthony (son of Edmund Denny and Mary Coke) was born on 16 Jan 1501 in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England; died on 10 Sep 1549 in Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England; was buried in St. Mary's, Cheshunt, Hertfordshire, England.

    Notes:

    One of AP's two gateway ancestors.

    Cotton Mather, in Magnalia Christi Americana, called Mary Launce, second wife of the Rev. John Sherman, a "young gentlewoman [...] a Person of good Education, and Reputation, and honorably descended," whose mother was "daughter to the Lord Darcy, who was Earl of Rivers." She certainly was not, and in his pioneering 1860-64 Genealogical Dictionary of the First Settlers of New England, James Savage took delight at exercising his well-known animus against Mather, who "tells of this wife calling her mother daughter of Darcy, Earl Rivers, one of the Popish Counsellors of Charles I who had no daughter that married a Launce." Savage continues: "If [Mary Launce Sherman] did give [her husband] these myths of her noble descent [...] either she was insane, which he had not sanity enough to discover, or she was irreverently playing on his bottomless credulity." It was left to the great Donald Lines Jacobus, founder of the twentieth-century "Jacobus School" of skeptical, fact-based genealogy, to point out, in a 1944 article, "The Family of Rev. John Sherman" (citation details below), that Mary Launce's mother really was a Darcy, albeit one of the Darcy family of Kent. Isabella Darcy of London, daughter of Sir Edward Darcy, a confidant and ally of Elizabeth I, first married John Launce of Cornwall and, secondly, the Rev. Sydrach Simpson, master of Pembroke Hall at Cambridge University. Her 1668 will names, with others, her sons James Launce and Darcy Launce, and her daughter Mary Sherman. In a subsequent article, "The Darcy Ancestry of Mrs. John Sherman" (citation details below), Jacobus put forth further proofs of Mary Launce's parentage, calling it a "perfect chain of evidence" and remarking that "Few English lines of early colonists are so thoroughly proved."

    Descendants of the Rev. John Sherman and Mary Launce include Norman Rockwell, Declaration of Independence signer Robert Treat Paine, and the 68th governor of Massachusetts, William Weld.

    Regarding the date of her death, the Early New England Families Study Project (citation details below) states only that she "[d]ied probably at Watertown between 15 October 1705 and 24 December 1712. She was living on 20 October 1704, when she acknowledged a deed." But Watertown records (citation details below) clearly state "ms Mary Sherman (widow of mr. John Sherman Late: Rd: pastor of the church in watertown) deceast march : 9 : 1709/10".

    Mary married Rev. John Sherman about 1647. John (son of Edmund Sherman and Grace Makin) was born on 26 Dec 1613 in Dedham, Essex, England; died on 8 Aug 1685 in Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts; was buried in East Watertown, Middlesex, Massachusetts. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    History of Medina County and Ohio (citation details below), naming her as a daughter of Elisha Branch and Sallie Thompson of Hampshire County, Massachusetts, calls her "Mrs. Albert Mead, in Michigan".

    From Edythe Alma (Pearsall) Palmer (citation details below):

    Sarah Branch Mead moved from a New York county to the Lansing area with her brood of six, lived in a log cabin and taught her children (plus the neighbors') how to read from newspapers on the walls, before she was able to add a real book to her copy of the Bible and one by Charles Dickens. I have a photo (circa 1903) of her at least 90, wearing her black bombazine highnecked shirtwaist, wearing her gold wedding ring, and reading the Bible. (I don't believe that many women could read at all at that time.) Of course, it paid off. Grandpa Mead became a proofreader for the Detroit Free Press, a Shakespeare scholar and a "reader" in the Christian Science church! He loved to laugh and tell funny stories. I remember the one about the witches in Macbeth.

    Sarah married Albert Cyrus Mead on 7 Jan 1847. Albert was born about 1825 in Cayuga County, New York. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    According to his obituary in the Detroit Free Press, he was a compositor for them (1880-1890), not a proofreader as reported in his granddaughter Edythe Alma (Pearsall) Palmer's undated letter quoted in our entry on his mother. From 1890 until his retirement in 1926, he was a customs officer in Detroit. According to Edythe Alma (Pearsall) Palmer, he was also an amateur Shakespeare scholar. He must have been well-liked; obituary notices appeared for him in newspapers in Detroit, Lansing, and Battle Creek.

    Edwin married Carolyn Green on 22 Jan 1873 in Lansing, Ingham, Michigan. Carolyn (daughter of Capt. John Green) was born on 22 Jan 1852 in Lansing, Ingham, Michigan; died on 22 Jun 1932 in Albion, Calhoun, Michigan. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
