From DeWayne B. Johnson on 15 Jun 2010:

I think my nickname "Doc" dates back at least 75 years, perhaps to 1935. I was 15 years old. My older brother Clifford and I worked on my uncle's (George M. Talbot Dairy) dairy ranch in Burbank. Neither of us milked cows but we did almost everything else -- washing bottles, pasteurizing and bottling milk, churning of buttermilk, pitching hay, mucking out the muck, and much more. Clifford called me "Doc" and I called him "Joe." Uncle George had a hay ranch out east (?) of Lancaster and pasture land down near Irvine. I rode mules and horses in the course of my work. Fell off more than once, brushed off by low-hanging branches. Otherwise, I am no horseman!

Clifford's nickname never stuck, but mine remained with me even up to today! I earned a real doctorate at UCLA in mass communications and education in 1955. Throughout my professional career as a journalist and professor of journalism, my colleagues and students have hailed me as "Doc." They still do. It feels good to be one of them and not an outsider!

I run the risk of bragging a bit -- two Pulitzer Prizes with a select few on the LATimes editorial staff, and twice honored by the California Publishers Association as THE outstanding professor of journalism in the state of California. (Oh, I am shameless!) So I may be something of a legend, my ego says, but that truly remains to be seen.

Noted events in his life were:

• Moved: Moved to Burbank, California from Nebraska, 1930, Burbank, Los Angeles, California, United States.

• Moved: Moved to Long Beach from Burbank, 1941, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States.

12. Alexander L Johnson,3 4 5 6 son of John Jacob Johnson 4 14 15 16 and Mary B. Jensen,4 17 was born on 28 Sep 1885 in Seward, Nebraska, United States, died on 30 May 1930 in North Platte, Lincoln, Nebraska, United States at age 44, and was buried on 3 Jun 1930 in Hope Cemetery, Newman Grove, Madison, Nebraska, United States. The cause of his death was Heart attack resulting from ptomaine poisoning. Other names for Alexander were Alex Johnson and Alexander Johnson.

Death Notes: From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska, newspaper: "The community was shocked and saddened Friday morning by the news of the sudden death of Alex Johnson while he was visiting relatives at North Platte. Mr. and Mrs. Johnson and family left here on Saturday, May 24 for a visit with her sister and her family at North Platte. On Thursday Mr. Johnson was taken very sick with ptomanine [sic] poisoning. A physician was called and he began to improve. Friday morning he was able to be up, but complained of a headache and was lying down. Mrs. Johnson had gone to another room to get some medicine for his headache and was gone only a very short time but when she returned he had passed away. Physicians were called, but could do nothing, death being due to a sudden heart attack."

General Notes: Occupation: Carpenter. From obituary in Newman Grove, Nebraska newspaper: "...They established their home in Newman Grove [in 1912] and have resided her continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken."

From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

"(The 'L' in my father's name was not an initial because that was the 'name' and hence takes no period.)...

"Today the mini-park near downtown [Newman Grove] includes the bandstand where my father played oboe in the town band...

"That is the man I tagged along with to his woodshop down near the granary. From that woodshop I still smell the gragrant homemade glues in their heating pots, I see the wood grains from rare specimens that went into carefully crafted table tops, bowls, cabinetry, and hear the scrabbling of tiny rodent feet fleeing for cover when the doors we opened.

"I tagged along as he walked the streets in town, greeted heartily by everyone he met. I know now that as a carpenter he built many of the buildings, homes, in town and surrounding vicinities."

DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of him on 8/17/1986:

"His hands were heavily wrinkled, tanned, scarred; his fingernails were ragged and never seemed quite rid of the residue of the day's labors. The brown, blood-clot areas under the nails were evidence of the beating the hands took as he hammered, pried, used his sinewy strength to build homes, schools, churches, and his artistic touch on fine cabinetry, delicate inlaid wooden trays, a variety of carved or lathe-turned items that would today be labeled 'examples of wood artisans, Early American Primitive to Post-World War I.'

"This carpenter's hands were gentle. To a small boy's hands they were tremendous, warm and snug retreats during proud walks on the streets of Newman Grove, Nebraska, where Alexander L Johnson was known far and wide as 'Alex.' (The 'L' had no period' it stood for nothing. To those who insisted it had to stand for 'something,' a concession was made: Lloyd, or possibly Loyd. One 'L' or two, it made no difference because truly it stood for nothing.

"I remember those hands as he warmly shook hands of others during those prized walks: Alex was clearly loved, respected by everyone, those townfolks with the funny foreign-sounding names...

"It flits through my mind to recall his hands, the dancing fingers as he played the oboe in the town band during its summertime concerts in the park band shell. And the strong, mascuiline right hand and the convincingly feminine left hand as 'Alex' costumed himself half male and half female for some annual celebration and parade down Main Street.

"Alex and his skills were in great demand; it is likely that some of the rural schools he built -- some of them single-handedly -- still stand today in some corners of Nebraska where Alex Johnson has long been forgotten. And Alex Johnson's houses absolutely remain, with their fashionable gingerbread of the time, and the curved staircases with their fancy railings, the hardwood floors, the weighted window sashes, and the trademark cabinetry.

"Alex had a hand in building the brick schools of Newman Grove, primary grads and high school For a short period he even taught wood shop at the high school (probably as a substitute teacher)...

"The lights went out for a 10-year-old boy on a spring day in 1930 when his father died in a farm house at North Platte, Nebraska.

"The bewilderment remains to this day -- one day so much alive, so much enjoying the fishing, the catching, the eating, and the next day quiet whispers, somber tip-toeing so as not to disturb. (The doctor surmised the death was caused by ingesting spoiled fish.) The return to Newman Grove on a bright Sunday morning, the church bells ringing, and still the 10-year-old could not understand."

Research Notes: Middle initial L does not stand for anything. It is simply L without a period. It may not be on his birth certificate.

Excerpts from obituary in Newman Grove weekly newspaper, fully quoted in a letter to daughter Janine Johnson 8/17/1986, p. 4:

Alexander L. Johnson was born in Seward county, Nebraska September 28, 1885 and and passed away at the home of relatives at North Platte May 30, 1930 at the age of 44 years and 8 months.

They established their home in Newman Grove [occupying the house recently vacated by Conrad Erickson and known forever as 'the Erickson House'] and have resided here continuously ever since. During these years he has built many of the buildings in both the town and vicinity and was considered a thorough, conscientious workman, of pleasant and kindly disposition of whom only good was spoken.

General Notes: From DeWayne B. Johnson's book "I Have Met a Lot of Generals," 2007:

"I remember her heating gladirons in the oven and ironing clothing and linens by the light of kerosene lanterns. That same oven turned out freshly baked bread unlike any found in the markets of today...

"My mother played the piano for pleasure--hers and the family's. I can also hear the tinkling notes of 'Angel Voices Ever Near'--and weep at the memory.

"She died in 1942 at age 49 in Long Beach, Calif. She should be remembered for many things (pecan pies!), but a couple of memories stand out.

"There were the Saturday night family baths in that big galvanized tub in the kitchen, filled with hot water from the top of the wood stove. My turn came late and the water was fairly well saturated with [grime] of the weeke when my turn arrived. I never saw my parents as they bathed spared major destruction."
---------
Son DeWayne B. Johnson wrote of his mother, Lula Mae, on 8/17/1986:

"The 12 years of widowhood -- it seems a short time now but a long time then in the context of a boy growing through the teens -- for my mother were mostly years spent scraping to stay alive, taking in boarders, working on my uncle's [George M. Talbot's] dairy ranch, slaving at Jergen's soap factory. She even worked for a time as cook and housekeeper for the movie stars Frances Dee and Joel McCrea.

"Very soon after Alex's death the 37-year-old widow, three children, cousin Owen Mulholland made their way across country in the Model A Ford open touring car to California, Burbank. We came at the invitation of Uncle George M. Talbot, owner of the Talbot Dairy.

"Of that trip, the rust-orange dust accumulated while crossing Arizona evokes the strongest memory. There were flat tires, how many I have no way of recalling...

"Lula and Aunt Fannie Talbot belonged to the Bon Ami social club, primarily devoted to bridge. (The tagalong youngsters popped popcorn and played street games: tag, run sheep run, hide and seek, totally inocuous by today's standards.) Most of the Bon Ami members were married couples. It was that group that constituted the bulk of Lula's contacts, leading to the job at Jergens soap and to acquaintanceship with widower Frank Joanis, a Burbank grocer.

"Their dating continued for several years until Joanis quite suddenly married another woman whom he had recently met.

"The move to Long Beach was occasioned by supposed house maid opportunities that never materialized...

"My mother died at 49, the victim of a fad starvation diet that was supposed to reduce the size of a goiter, more imaginary than real (Real enough but of no consequence.)

"She was a loving mother, ill-equipped to help a young man, Clifford, and a growing boy, DeWayne, to understand the changes in their male bodies...

"To put things a bit into historical perspective, World War II was well along when Lula died. The Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor had occurred six months previous, Dec. 7, 1941. Lorna and I were married on Aug. 22, 1942, soon after her death in June."

Noted events in her life were:

• Census: 12 Jun 1900, Pleasant Home Precinct, Polk, Nebraska, United States. 21

• Moved: Moved to Newman Grove, Nebraska, Abt 1912, Newman Grove, Madison, Nebraska, United States.

• Moved: Moved to Burbank, California from Nebraska, Fall 1930, Burbank, Los Angeles, California, United States.

• Moved: Moved to Long Beach, California, 1941, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States.

• Residence: 2415 E. 11th St., 1942, Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States.

Excerpts from short autobiography by Edward H. Wallace dated 4 May 1920:

"Born in a log house on a rented farm, near Ponsonby, P.O., Pilkington Tp., Wellington Co., Ontario, Canada, April 16, 1872. Children preceding, Maud, now wife of Dr. H. H. Healy, Grand Forks, North Dakota; William Havelock, executive secretary Y.M.C.A., Los Angeles. Following, Ernest Hazlewood, Attorney, New Orleans, Lewis Herbert, President First National Bank, Newport Beach, California; Charles Horace, Cashier same bank at time of death, February, 1914. In 1879 family removed to Elora [Wellington Tp, Wellington Co., Ontario, Canada], five miles distant. November 1880 to Lincoln, Nebraska residing on a farm ten miles distant until February , 1881 when removed to Drayton, North Dakota, the family exchequer consisting of $2.40. Father filed on pre-emption one mile from town to which family removed in April and mother died the next month. Three years later father returned to Canada and married Mary Larter, mother's particular friend. To this union came Gertrude, who died at the age of two years Ella Irene, in 1887 and Maxwell Raymond, 1890.

"The railroad came to Drayton in 1887. In September, 1887 went with older brother [William H. Wallace] to Hamline University, St. Paul [Minnesota], where brother had been a short time the previous year. In December father sold his land and other property at Drayton to go to Pasadena, California and go into business with his brothers Albert and Frank who had preceded him. Will and Ed joined the party in Minneapolis. Father, after arriving, decided otherwise, bought other farms at Drayton and returned in March, 1888. Will and Ed helped with the farm work and returned to Hamline in the fall. Thus they continued until they finished the preparatory course, Ed working for the Nebraska Telephone Company in Lincoln, Nebraska, for fifteen months. Both returned to Hamline and were graduated together in 1895. Both worked hard throughout the course supplementing the assistance their father could give them. The summer of [18]93 Will was conductor on street-car line in St. Paul and Ed sold papers and collected and distributed laundry at the race-track of the State Fair Grounds. In December 1895 Ed took an office position with the Amenia and Sharon Land Co. at Amenia, North Dakota, setting about diligently to learn the grain business. In 1898 he enlisted in the North Dakota regiment for Philippine service but was disqualified because of physical defect and returned to his work at Amenia. That summer he went to Prescott, Wisconsin to ask Eleanor Dill to marry him. When they were in college together he thought he loved her but went out to get started in business and learn for sure. When they found that love was mutual, things took the usual course. They became engaged July 28th and were married the following July 27th. Eleanor's Uncle, M. T. Dill, had grown old in the grain business at Prescott and, to be relieved of some of the burden, invited Wallace to join with him and two of his old-time Employees in the M. T. Dill Grain Company. This partnership was effected August 1, 1900 and continued for eight years. Here four children were born to the couple-Jean, July 10, 1900;' John Donald, July 8, 1903; Marjorie, March 23, 1905 and William Dill January 5, 1907...

"To Long Beach, California the family removed in July, 1908 where he took a position in the Exchange National Bank which had been organized by his brother Will. He was soon made Assistant Cashier and Director. From this position he went to the Marine Commercial and Savings Bank as Vice President in January, 1916. This bank was then about two years old, had deposits of $300,000, and was paying no dividends. Now it has deposits of two and a half millions, is paying ten percent and earning much more.

"Another child, Eleanor Thompson, was born into this family January 16, 1914."

Birth Notes: From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lunenburg_District%2C_Ontario):
Eastern District was one of four districts of Upper Canada created in 1788 . It comprised the St. Lawrence-Quebec border area, now eastern Ontario. It was originally named Lunenburg District, likely for the Brunswick-Lόneburg , but was renamed in 1792. It was abolished in 1849.
The district was originally bounded to the west by a line running north from the mouth of the Gananoque River and to the east by Lower Canada . The district town was New Johnstown, later renamed Cornwall . In 1798, the district was reorganized to consist of the counties of:
Dundas
Glengarry
Ontario (abolished in 1800)
Prescott
Russell
Stormont
In 1849, the district was replaced by the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry .

Christening Notes: May have been baptized in the Free Presbyterian Church, Lunenburg (same as the Church of Scotland?).

Death Notes: Death date from "Decree Establishing Death of Joint Tenant" dated 15 Aug 1944.

General Notes: Wallace family nickname "Monie."

Research Notes: Written evidence in Lorna Doone Wallace (Johnson) collection does not show Poapst spelled "Paupst." However, a postcard from Edith to her motherdated 19 February 1907, addresses her as "Mrs. Helen Poaps." Later family records and photographs consistently have "Poapst."

24. John Jacob Johnson,4 14 15 16 son of Lauritz Jorgensen 57 and Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen,4 was born on 15 Aug 1854 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sψnderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark, was christened on 27 Aug 1854 in Bov (Bau), Schlesvig, Denmark, died on 29 Sep 1929 in Fort Dodge, Webster, Iowa, United States at age 75, and was buried in Humboldt, Humboldt, Iowa, United States. Other names for John were George J. Johnson, George Othmar Johnson, and Jorgen Jacob Jorgensen.

Birth Notes: 1900 Census has John J Johnson and his parents born in Germany. Mary reported born in Denmark. Census has born August 1844, which differs from the obituary. His obituary has his birthdate as 15 August 1854. Mark Johnson has a source with 27 August 1854. It is my guess that 27 August 1854 was the date of his christening.

Obituary says "Bau, Denmark," but there is no such place. However, "Bau" is the German for Bov in Sonderjylland (South Jutland) county on the Jutland peninsula in south Denmark. The main town is Padborg. Since Bau/Bov was held by Germany from 1864 to 1920, that explains the discrepancy. Bov was Danish at the time John Jacob was born.

The city of Bov (German Bau) in the area of Flensborg in Denmark was the site of the Battle of Bov, which began the First Schleswig War on 9 April 1848. Schleswig-Holstein was trying to separate from Denmark. Danish troops defeated a combined force of German, Austrian and Prussian troops. The First Schleswig War lasted from 1848 through 1851, resulting in a Danish victory. The Second Schleswig War erupted on 1 February 1864, when Prussian forces crossed the border into Schleswig. That war ended on 30 October 1864, when Denmark ceded the duchies of Schleswig, Holstein and Saxe-Lauenburg to Prussia and Austria. The Schleswig Plebiscites in 1919 and 1920 resulted in the return of the Aabenraa district to Denmark.

General Notes: Grandson DeWayne B. Johnson wrote about his grandfather Johnson thus on 8/17/1986:

"I have a darker image of my father's father [than his memory of his Talbot grandparents], both dark and dim. He died when I was 9 [in 1929] but I truly can't say I remember him remotely well. Grandmother Johnson was a sterner figure, in my memory, than Grandmother Talbot. I feel now that what I did as a boy often seemed to displease her. I know I was supposed to care for her but I am not at all sure that I did.

Research Notes: Eldest son of Laurtiz and Caroline Johnson.

The Iowa marriage record for Minnie Johnson and Daniel Urquhart at FamilySearch.org gives Minnie's father as George Johnson (mother Mary Johnson). Although J. J. Johnson's obituary gives his name as J. J. Johnson, and family records have John Jacob Johnson, other sources indicate that he was also known as George J. Johnson. His obituary has John J. Johnson. He appeared as John J. Johnson in the 1910 Census.

Mark Johnson's research has found his name as Jorgen Jacob Jorgensen (Possiblly after Lauritz's and Caroline's fathers). Birth records list J.J.'s father as Lauritz Jorgensen, born Denmark. Mother listed as Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen, born Denmark.

Obituary of John J. Johnson

John Jacob Johnson was the eldest son of Lauritz and Caroline Johnson and was born in Bau, Denmark on August 15, 1854, and passed away at the Mercy hospital in Fort Dodge, Iowa, on Sept. 29, 1929, at the age of 75 years, 1 month and 15 days.

He was ill at his home in Paton for six weeks when his condition became such that it was necessary to take him to the hospital for special treatment, but little could be done to relieve him.

The funeral services were held at Humboldt last Thursday afternoon. Many from West Bend and Rodman were in attendance.

He was confirmed in the Danish Luthern faith at 16 years of age. In 1881 he came to America with his parents, who settled near Gilmore City, Ill. The following year he became a citizen of the United States.

At the age of thirty years he was married to Mary Johnson on Dec. 22, 1883. To this union ten children were born, all living with the exception of two who passed away in infancy.

He farmed for a number of years in Nebraska and in 1897 came to Iowa where he farmed at West Bend and Rodman. In 1912 he retired and moved to Rodman, later moving to California. Five years ago Mr. and Mrs. Johnson came to Paton, Iowa, where they have since made their home with their daughter, Mrs. O. E. Pearson. He was devoted to his family always thinking of their welfare. He was temperate in his habits and a good example to his family and to those about him. There remains to mour his loss his loving wife and eight devoted children; also six brothers and four sisters and thirteen grandchildren. The children are: John C. Johnson, Chas. J. Johnson, Mrs. Hannah Shriner, all of Long Beach, Cal.; Alex L. Johnson, Newman Grove, Nebr.; Caroline K. Klinge, Curlew, Iowa; Mrs. Minnie Urquhart, Rodman; Wm. J. Johnson, Plover; and Mrs. Mary Pearson, Paton, Iowa.

And now the time has come when hosts of friends far and near have been called upon to part with an esteemed friend and a loving husband and father.

Although the parting has come he has left us with an assurance that he has faith in us in whom he has believed and trusted that we will carry on to successful completion the work he has been forced to leave unfinished. The thought of him watching us from the ramparts of heaven should be an inspiration to us as friends and relatives to carry on reverently and sincerely and to make the outstanding characteristics of his life, which were faith in all things good, honesty and punctuality in all his walks of life and then his benediction will be: "All things whatsoever you would that men should do unto you do ye even so to them."

"I have a darker image of my father's father [than his memory of his Talbot grandparents], both dark and dim. He died when I was 9 but I truly can't say I remember him remotely well. Grandmother Johnson was a sterner figure, in my memory, than Grandmother Talbot. I feel now that what I did as a boy often seemed to displease her. I know I was supposed to care for her but I am not at all sure that I did.

"As with Grandparents Talbot, we also visited those grandparents but I cannot conjure up a good image of their home except for a romanticized notion of Tiffany=-type lamps; etched-glass front, side and back doors; screened porch for summertime sleeping and that's about it."

Grandson DeWayne B. Johnson wrote about Grandmother Talbot (Margaret Burrows Talbot) thus on 8/17/1986:

"My vague recollection, substantiated by I know not what, is that on one occasion when my family was visiting the ranch [in North Platte, Nebraska] Grandmother Talbot and I got mired in quick sand and she held me aloft as we sank into the gooey substance. needless to say, we were rescued, or I wouldn't be able to write this way to you today.

"Folklore has it also that she was gifted by remarkable superhuman strength on an occasion when a wagon collapsed on one of her sons and she lifted the entire load by the wagon axle until he could be pulled free. An impossible task under ordinary circumstances.

"I remember the smells of her farm kitchen and helping with the churning of butter. We trimmed the wicks of the kerosene lanterns. A small kitchen garden seemed always to be producing some good things to eat. I don't remember her passing."

Based on that 1880 information, she is probably the 12-year-old Margaret Burrows who is in the 1870 census in Duncan, Mercer, Illinois with her parents and siblings. If that is the case, her parents were John and Martha Burrows, both born in Ireland.

Research Notes: From The Record, March, 1897, Vol. 2, No. 9, p. 1:

"Hon. John D. Wallace, representative from Pembina county was among half a dozen of the best members of the house judged from every possible standpoint. He was true, active, earnest, voting with the best element of his party, voting for the best interests of the state, as he saw those interests, under all circumstances. He was in no combinations to defeat good legislation, in none to promote bad, but was honest, earnest, practical and effective in support of everything that was good and in opposition to everything that was bad. Mr. Wallace was born in Ponsonby, Wellington county, Onatio, Feb. 24, 1845, of Anglo-Scotch parentage, and was educated in the Canadian common schools. He came to the United States in 1880, and located at Drayton, Pembina county, in 1881, where he has since been engaged in farming and stock growing. He has a farm of 800 acres, mostly devoted to wheat and feeds live stock on a small scale. He was elected county commissioner in 1884 and held two successive terms, and was a member of the state board of equalization in 1895. He was elected to the legislature in 1896. His committee assignments appear elsewhere."

From History of Long Island: From Its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time, 1903, vol. III, p. 114 :
"George Wallace is descended from a Scotch family which has contributed members to every honorable and useful walk of life. His father, Donald Wallace, a native of Scotland, born in 1816, recently died in California, in the eighty-seventh year of his age. He reared a family of nine children, all but one of whom are living and occupying excellent business and social positions. The youngest son, a member of Roosevelt's 'Rough Riders' regiment, lost his life in the Spanish-American war. The eldest, John D., has long been a prominent business man and a leader in Republican councils in North Dakota, and is now the county judge of Pembina county; Charles L. is editor of the leading Republican newspaper in Nassau county, at Rockville Center, also a prominent operator in real estate. Albert J. and Frank S., as the firm of Wallace Bros., are at the head of large business enterprises at Los Angeles, Pasadena and elsewhere in California. Lavinia M. is the wife of R. H. Young, editor of the 'Methodist Herald,' of Minneapolis, Minnesota; Matilda H. is the wife of the Rev. James Healy, a Methodist Episcopal clergyman filling a pastorate in Southern California; and Mary A. is wife of S. Frank Johnson, a banker at Pasadena, California."

John D. Wallace
John D. Wallace died this morning at the Long Beach hospital, after over a week's sickness following a severe surgical operation. He was sixty-two years of age.

He was strong of body and stout of heart, and yet with an unfailing gentle disposition. It was his pride to give his children a good start in life, seven of whom have been assisted in gaining an acedemic [sic] education, five having graduated from Hamline University, St. Paul. There are left to mourn his loss, his wife, Ella and Max, the younger members of the family still at home; W. H. Wallace, cashier of the Exchange National bank of this city; L. H.

From "Bethany History" (http://www.bethanyuc.org/Sub/bethany_history_1.htm):

Our first record of Bethany Church, then Methodist, was for the purchase of the lot for the Cemetery at Ponsonby. This was bought on October 3, 1843 from Oliver and Mary Lasby for 2 pounds and was three-quarters of an acre. The church trustees at that time were Hugh and Donald Wallace, Samuel Cunningham, Robert Fasken and Thomas Moore. On the tombstones in this cemetery we find names of some of the pioneer families. These include John Allen - died 1875; Joseph Hall - d 1861 aged 41 years; Thomas Howse - d 1874; Mary Peckover (Howse) - d 1855; Ann Howse (sister of Thomas) - d 1881 at 93 years,Levi Patmore-d 1872; Mary, wife of Joseph Lasby --d 1876; Joseph Lasby -d 1876, and many others. This cemetery was used until about 1888.

At that time, the Bethany Church belonged to the Elora Circuit and services were held in a log school house that was situated on the farm now owned by Stanley Steen, Lot 9, Con. 2, Pilkington Township.

The first church was built of stone and was situated on Lot 9, Con. 2 Pilkington Township on the farm now owned by Kenneth Barton (Alvin Skerritt). This property was seventy feet square and was bought from Joseph Lasby on the 13th day of February 1863 for twenty dollars. The trustees at this time were Donald and Hugh Wallace, Joseph Lasby, Thomas and Edmund Hall, Gilgian Bettchen and William Bye. The minister was Rev. R. Forman.

Owing to the nature of the land, a good foundation had not been built under this church and a new site soon had to be chosen. On the 9th of December, 1875, three-eights of an acre of land was purchased for Fifty Dollars from William Thacker and his mother Catherine, widow of John Thacker. The present church was built of red brick in 1876 with Rev. Thomas Cobb as minister and the trustees were Gilgian and Joseph Bettchen, Hugh and John D. Wallace, Donald McKay, William Bye, Charles Nicklin, William Martin, Edward and Henry Patmore Benjamin Fyfe, Henry Hall and Joseph Lasby. The corner stone of the new church was laid by Col. Charles Clarke, member of the Provincial Legislature.

Noted events in her life were:

• Census: 1861, Elora, Nichol Twp, Wellington, Canada West (Ontario), Canada. 103

Hannah married John Donald Wallace 22 23 73 74 before 1869.

30. Curtis Poapst,4 9 51 son of John Frederick Poapst 4 104 105 106 107 and Margaret Wood,4 108 109 110 was born on 21 Jul 1843 in Lunenburg, Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada, died on 28 Feb 1885 in Osnabruck Centre, Osnabruck Twp (South Stormont), Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada at age 41, and was buried in Poapst Homestead (Willis United Cemetery), Lunenburg, Osnabruck, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada.111 Other names for Curtis were Paupst Curtis and Popps Curtis.

Birth Notes: FamilySearch has his birthdate as 21 July 1848. However, the 1871 census gives his age as 27. It seems likely that he was born in 1843 instead (a misreading of the gravestone?).

The entry for Curtis in the Curtis Poapst family Bible is not entirely clear. It could be 1843 or 1848. I'm interpreting it as 1843. The "3" looks the same as in Edith Pearl Poapst's birth date in the same hand.

Lorna Wallace family tree has b. July, 1848 in Lunenburg, Ontario, Canada, but I think she erred. Other sources (e.g., Rosemary Benson) have 1843. Rosemary Benson did a great deal of research and may be right.

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~poaps/Notices.htm, etc. has tombstone inscription from Poapst homestead, [Osnabruck Twp., Stormont Co.,] Ontario.

See also http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3047155&id=I582489045, seems authoritative. Has b. 21 Jul 1843. Another RootsWeb source has 1848.

My guess is that the headstone is no longer legible.

Death Notes: Source http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~poaps/Notices.htm has d. 28 February 1885.

Burial Notes: Gravestone reads:
Mary Poapst - d. Jan. 17, 1849 - AE 22 yrs. - daughter of John F. & Margaret Poapst
Curtis Poapst - b. July 21, 1843 - d. Feb. 28, 1885
John F. Poapst - died Oct 2, 1887 - AE 72 yrs
his wife
Margaret - died April 18, 1853 - AE 59 yrs

The stone was originally in the back of the Poapst family homestead, where the bodies remain. The stone was brought to Willis United Cemetery at some time before April 2002.

Research Notes: Source: Family records of Lorna (Wallace) Johnson.

The surname is usually spelled "Poapst" in subsequent family records. However, there are postcards addressed to Helen (Mrs. Curtis) and Edith (daughter) with other spellings such as:
Popps
Paupst

Lorna Wallace family tree has name as Helen Lind Studley b. 26 Nov 1850, Cedar Creek, Washington Co., Wisconsin.

More info found in FamilySearch.org.

Daughter Edith Poapst spelled her mother's married name "Poaps" on a postcard dated 19 February 1907. Later family records and photographs consistently have "Poapst." A postcard from another person has "Popps." These variations occur in other Canadian and American branches of the family.

Research Notes: Name Lauritz Johnson from published obituary of John J. Johnson d. 1929.
First and last name may not have been Lauritz Johnson originally. Some family oral traditions hold that the name was originally Jorgensen.

Mark Johnson (May 2012) has a good amount of information about the family of a Lauritz and Caroline Johnson, who lived in Gibson City, Illinois after immigrating to the United States in 1880. It is likely that those persons are this same family. That family was from Schleswig-Holstein, which makes sense, as there is some confusion about Denmark vs. Germany, and the town of Bov (Bau) in which John J. Johnson was born is in Schleswig.

U.S. Census records indicate that Lauritz and Caroline had 12 children.
--
Parents of a Lauritz Jorgensen baptized on 26 Jun 1831 in Svenstrup were Jorgen Christensen and Helene Nissen.

---------
Denmark Burials, 1640-1917 (FamilySearch.org) yields another, yet less likely, possibility:
Lauritz Johann Johannsen
b.
d. 7 Jan 1870 in Ketting, Sonderborg, Denmark
Buried 13 Jan 1870
Father Gustav Johann Johannsen
Mother Anne Larsdatter/Larsdotter

Noted events in his life were:

• Emigrated: from Denmark to the United States, 1881, <Illinois>, United States.

Lauritz married Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen 4 on 28 May 1854 in Bov, Εbenrε, Sψnderjylland, Denmark.123 Anna was born <Jul 1835> in <Holstein>, Germany <Denmark>, was christened on 9 Aug 1835 in Bov (Bau), Schlesvig, Denmark,124 and died aft <1910> in <Humboldt, Iowa>, United States. Other names for Anna were Caroline <Casper>, Caroline Caspison, Caroline Cosparsen, Caroline Kasperson, and Caroline Kepperson.

Marriage Notes: Mark Johnson has found evidence that Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen, born July 1835, christened 9 Aug 1835 in Bov, Flensborg, Schlesvig, Denmark, married Lauritz Jorgensen, b. 1831, on 28 May 1854 in Bov, Schlesvig, Denmark. We are making the assumption that this is the same couple.

Children from this marriage were:

24        i.  John Jacob Johnson (born on 15 Aug 1854 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sψnderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark - died on 29 Sep 1929 in Fort Dodge, Webster, Iowa, United States)

          x.  Louis L. Johnson (born on 12 Sep 1875 in Schlesvig, Denmark - died on 14 Oct 1958 in New Jersey, United States)


49. Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen,4 daughter of Johann Jacob Caspersen 123 125 and Carolina Wilhelmine Beck,123 126 was born <Jul 1835> in <Holstein>, Germany <Denmark>, was christened on 9 Aug 1835 in Bov (Bau), Schlesvig, Denmark,124 and died aft <1910> in <Humboldt, Iowa>, United States. Other names for Anna were Caroline <Casper>, Caroline Caspison, Caroline Cosparsen, Caroline Kasperson, and Caroline Kepperson.

Death Notes: A Caroline Johnson was living with her daughter Lena (Johnson) Hanson in Humboldt, Iowa, in 1910. That is quite likely this Caroline.

Research Notes: Family records of DeWayne B. Johnson have only the name Caroline, with her birthplace as Germany.

Mark Johnson (May 2012) has a good amount of information about the family of Lauritz and Caroline Johnson, who lived in Gibson City, Illinois after immigrating to the United States in 1880. It is likely that those persons are this same family. That family was from Schleswig-Holstein.Census records indicate that they had 12 children.

Noted events in her life were:

• Census: U.S., 1910, Humboldt, Iowa, United States. 128

Anna married Lauritz Jorgensen 57 on 28 May 1854 in Bov, Εbenrε, Sψnderjylland, Denmark.123 Lauritz was born <1831>, was christened on 26 Jun 1831,121 and died bef <1900>. Other names for Lauritz were Lauritz Johnson and122 Louis Johnson.

Research Notes: From Donald Johnson's letter 23 July 1972 (?):
Dronninglund Church (old castle church) records for 1851 contain: "Married on June 20, 1851, at three o'clock, the bachelor Jens Christian Jensen of Dorf, 29 years, and the girl, Ane Cathrine Hansdatter of Asaa, 21 years.

Birth Notes: FamilySearch.org (Rod Blackman) gives b. 17 Feb 1820, Ohio. A Rootsweb source gives 24 Feb 1818.

Place is from D.B. Johnson family archive (obituary of Jr.?), without birthdate, corroborated by 1850 Census.

Death Notes: Date from familysearch.org (Rod Blackman submitter), not corroberated by birthplace. Birthplace is from D.B. Johnson family archive (obituary of Jr.?), without birthdate or death date.

Research Notes: Absalom Sr.'s lineage is dependent upon data obtained from Rod Blackman via www.familysearch.org. If Rod's Absalom Owen Talbott is not this person, all that is from our own archives is that he was born in Ohio, nothing else. In addition, before Rod Blackman's data were added, we had no name for Talbot Sr.'s wife, just that she was born in Virginia.

From History of Long Island, vol. III, p. 114 :

"George Wallace is descended from a Scotch family which has contributed members to every honorable and useful walk of life. His father, Donald Wallace, a native of Scotland, born in 1816, recently died in California, in the eighty-seventh year of his age. He reared a family of nine children, all but one of whom are living and occupying excellent business and social positions. The youngest son, a member of Roosevelt's 'Rough Riders' regiment, lost his life in the Spanish-American war. The eldest, John D., has long been a prominent business man and a leader in Republican councils in North Dakota, and is now the county judge of Pembina county; Charles L. is editor of the leading Republican newspaper in Nassau county, at Rockville Center, also a promient operator in real estate. Albert J. and Frank S., as the firm of Wallace Bros., are at the head of large business enterprises at Los Angeles, Pasadena and elsewhere in California. Lavinia M. is the wife of R. H. Young, editor of the 'Methodist Herald,' of Minneapolis, Minnesota; Matilda H. is the wife of the Rev. James Healy, a Methodist Episcopal clergyman filling a pastorate in Southern California; and Mary A. is wife of S. Frank Johnson, a banker at Pasadena, California."

From History of Long Island, vol. III, pp. 95-96:

"Charles L. Wallace, editor of the 'South Side Observer' of Rockville Center, Long Island, was born in Ponsonby, Ontario, December 13, 1855, a son of Donald and Harriet (Lasby) Wallace. His paternal grandparents were George and Margaret Wallace, who were natives of Scotland, and his maternal grandparents were Charles and Mary Lasby, natives of England. Donald Wallace, father of Charles L. Wallace, was born in Ross-shire, Scotland, February 14, 1816, from whence he emigrated to Caracas, South America, and thence to Ontario, and he subsequently removed to Pasadena, California.

From "Bethany History" (http://www.bethanyuc.org/Sub/bethany_history_1.htm):

Our first record of Bethany Church, then Methodist, was for the purchase of the lot for the Cemetery at Ponsonby. This was bought on October 3, 1843 from Oliver and Mary Lasby for 2 pounds and was three-quarters of an acre. The church trustees at that time were Hugh and Donald Wallace, Samuel Cunningham, Robert Fasken and Thomas Moore. On the tombstones in this cemetery we find names of some of the pioneer families. These include John Allen - died 1875; Joseph Hall - d 1861 aged 41 years; Thomas Howse - d 1874; Mary Peckover (Howse) - d 1855; Ann Howse (sister of Thomas) - d 1881 at 93 years,Levi Patmore-d 1872; Mary, wife of Joseph Lasby --d 1876; Joseph Lasby -d 1876, and many others. This cemetery was used until about 1888.
At that time, the Bethany Church belonged to the Elora Circuit and services were held in a log school house that was situated on the farm now owned by Stanley Steen, Lot 9, Con. 2, Pilkington Township.
The first church was built of stone and was situated on Lot 9, Con. 2 Pilkington Township on the farm now owned by Kenneth Barton (Alvin Skerritt). This property was seventy feet square and was bought from Joseph Lasby on the 13th day of February 1863 for twenty dollars. The trustees at this time were Donald and Hugh Wallace, Joseph Lasby, Thomas and Edmund Hall, Gilgian Bettchen and William Bye. The minister was Rev. R. Forman.

Owing to the nature of the land, a good foundation had not been built under this church and a new site soon had to be chosen. On the 9th of December, 1875, three-eights of an acre of land was purchased for Fifty Dollars from William Thacker and his mother Catherine, widow of John Thacker. The present church was built of red brick in 1876 with Rev. Thomas Cobb as minister and the trustees were Gilgian and Joseph Bettchen, Hugh and John D. Wallace, Donald McKay, William Bye, Charles Nicklin, William Martin, Edward and Henry Patmore Benjamin Fyfe, Henry Hall and Joseph Lasby. The corner stone of the new church was laid by Col. Charles Clarke, member of the Provincial Legislature.

Birth Notes: May have been born about 1794 or earlier. Rosemary Benson has b. 1797. Her gravestone reads "AE 59 yrs."

Poss. b. Cornwall, Ontario or Gananoque (Leeds and Grenville Co.), Ontario.

Death Notes: My interpretation of the date on her gravestone is d. 18 Apr 1858. kjf 10/26/11

Site http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~poaps/Notices.htm has
"Margaret, wife of John F. Poapst d. 18 Apr 1853, age 59 years
Buried at Poapst Homestead. (Taken from a gravestone)" The year 1853 is probably incorrect.

Burial Notes: Gravestone reads:
Mary Poapst - d. Jan. 17, 1849 - AE 22 yrs. - daughter of John F. & Margaret Poapst
Curtis Poapst - b. July 21, 1843 - d. Feb. 28, 1885

The stone was originally in the back of the Poapst family homestead, where the bodies remain. The stone was brought to Willis United Cemetery at some time before April 2002.

General Notes: Note: The family tree created by Lorna Wallace Johnson around 1950 has only the name "Margaret Wood" and ", Canada." Lorna did not know Margaret's parents' names.

Research Notes: Margaret's parents were definitely:
Lt. Col.Roger Wood (Ul.E.L.) (1767-1862) + Margaret Drew (1767-1864)
NOT
John Wood (U.E.L.) (abt 1764-1852) + Abigail Drew (1766-?)

Note: John & Abigail's daughter Margaret married Alexander Ross.

Margaret married John Frederick Poapst 4 104 105 106 107 on 14 Jan 1819 in Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada. John was born on 8 Nov 1795 in Northfield Station, Cornwall Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada, was christened on 25 Dec 1795,162 died on 2 Oct 1867 in Lunenburg, Osnabruck Twp (South Stormont), Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada163 164 at age 71, and was buried in Poapst Homestead (Willis United Cemetery), Lunenburg, Osnabruck (South Stormont), Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada.111 Other names for John were John Frederick Papst, Johannes Frederick Poapst, and John T. Poapst.

62. Sterling <Russell> Studley,4 son of < > Studley and Alurie < >, was born about 1817 in New York, United States and died after 1850. Other names for Sterling were Sterling R. Steadley, Sterling (Russell?) Studley, and L. B. Studly.

Research Notes: Marriage 27 Oct 1849 recorded as:
Sterling R. Studley
Barbara Lensez

Lorna Wallace's family tree has "Sterling (Russell?) Studley," with the last name spelled "Studley," but his mother/sister (?), Mary Catherine, may have spelled her last name "Steadley." Mary Catherine inscribed the inside front cover of her copy of The Mental Friend, and Rational Companion <1831?> in pencil, now very faint, and it seems to read "Mary Catherine Steadley, Cedar Creek, Polk, Wis." I don't know what Mary Catherine's relationship was.

Handwritten Wallace family tree from around 1935 has his name as simply "Sterling Studley, Wisconsin."

According to The Town of Polk website (http://www.tn.polk.wi.gov/), the town of Polk, Wisconsin had its boundaries established by the U.S. government around 1830. The town's Cedar Creek flows out of Cedar Lake and is a tributary of the Milwaukee River. "By 1846, 14 families lived in Cedar Creek." Russell and Barbara (?) Studley were probably one of those 14 families.

Noted events in his life were:

• Census: U.S., 3 Sep 1850, Polk, Washington, Wisconsin, United States. 176 177

Sterling married Ann Barbara Lintzen 4 114 on 27 Oct 1849 in Polk, Washington, Wisconsin, United States.178 Ann was born about 1830 in <Baden-Baden>, Germany and died after 1903. Other names for Ann were Barbara Lensen, Barbara Lensez, Barbara Lenzen, Ann B. Lincing, Barbara Lincing, and Barbara Linsin.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Josephine Studley (born about 1846 in Wisconsin, United States)

31       ii.  Helen Lind Studley (born on 26 Nov 1850 in Cedar Creek, Washington, Wisconsin, United States - died on 11 Jul 1921 in Long Beach, Los Angeles, California, United States)

        iii.  Alice Studley (born about 1851 in <Wisconsin, United States> - died after 1935)




63. Ann Barbara Lintzen,4 114 daughter of < > Lintzen 82 and Barbara < >,82 was born about 1830 in <Baden-Baden>, Germany and died after 1903. Other names for Ann were Barbara Lensen, Barbara Lensez, Barbara Lenzen, Ann B. Lincing, Barbara Lincing, and Barbara Linsin.

General Notes: Handwritten Wallace family tree from around 1935 gives her name as "Barbara Linsin."

Research Notes: Ambiguous information from handwritten note by Lorna Wallace to Danielle Fowler:
"My great grandmother on my mother's side... came to Canada from Baden-Baden, Germany*." [Footnote: "Ask [Lorna's brother] Stan if I'm right about this."]. Lorna's family tree has "Barbara Linsin" as Sterling Studley's wife (i.e., Lorna's great grandmother).

According to the marriage record, her name was "Barbara Lensez." This may be a transcription error. "Lenzen" or"Lensen" would more closely match the oral history.

In 1850, the S. R. Studley household consisted of S.R., age 33, Ann B., age 20 (his wife), born in Germany, Josephine, age 4, born Wisconsin, and Barbara Lincing, age 50, born in Germany (probably Ann B.'s mother).

Noted events in her life were:

• Census: 3 Sep 1850, Polk, Washington, Wisconsin, United States.

Ann married Sterling <Russell> Studley 4 on 27 Oct 1849 in Polk, Washington, Wisconsin, United States.178 Sterling was born about 1817 in New York, United States and died after 1850. Other names for Sterling were Sterling R. Steadley, Sterling (Russell?) Studley, and L. B. Studly.

96. Jψrgen Christensen,118 son of Christen Pedersen, was born <1800>. Other names for Jψrgen were Jorgen Sorensen and Jorgen Christensen Sorensen.

Research Notes: Two children of Jorgen Christensen and Helene Nissen were born before their marriage date of 1830. There may have been two couples with the same names at the same approximate time and place.

His last name appear as either Christensen or Sorenson or both.

There is a baptism record for Anna Helena Jorgensen, 2 March 1828 in Svenstrup, Εbenrε-Sonderborg, Denmark with father Jorgen Chrestensen Sorensen and mother Helena Nissen, one for Maria Jorgensen 28 March 1834, same place, same parents, and another for Maren Jorgensen 12 Nov 1837, same place and parents. The dates and place appear to tie to Lauritz Jorgensen/Johnson, whose marriage record gives his father's name as "Jorgen Christensen Or Sorensen" with mother's name Helena.

A transcribed marriage record for Jψrgen Christensen and Ellen Cathrine Nissen lists his father (Christen Pedersen) and has his age as 30.

Jψrgen married Helene Nissen 119 120 on 27 Jun 1830 in Marstal, Svendborg, Denmark.120 Helene was born <1803>. Another name for Helene was Ellen Cathrine Nissen.

Marriage Notes: Marriage date may have been 20 June 1830

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Anna Maria Jorgensen (born <1820>)

         ii.  Jorgen Jorgensen (christened on 26 Jan 1823 in Svenstrup, Εbenrε (Εbenrε-Sonderborg), Denmark)

97. Helene Nissen,119 120 daughter of Nis < > and < > < >, was born <1803>. Another name for Helene was Ellen Cathrine Nissen.

Helene married Jψrgen Christensen 118 on 27 Jun 1830 in Marstal, Svendborg, Denmark.120 Jψrgen was born <1800>. Other names for Jψrgen were Jorgen Sorensen and Jorgen Christensen Sorensen.

98. Johann Jacob Caspersen,123 125 son of Peter Caspersen 179 180 and Hedewig Petersen,179 180 was born in 1798 and died <3 May 1869> in <Bylderup, Tψnder, Denmark>179 at age 71. Another name for Johann was Jorgen Jacob Caspersen.

Death Notes: Death date in doubt. There is a death record for Johann Jacob Caspersen at age 71 on 3 May 1869 in Bylderup, Tψnder, Denmark, but his wife's name is given as Caroline Hedewig Beck. Other records have "our" Johann Jacob's wife as Caroline Wilhelmine Beck.

Research Notes: The transcribed death record gives his parents as Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. The only thing that throws this in doubt is Johann's wife's name, which is recorded as Caroline Hedewig Beck. Knowing how naming went in those days, however, it is possible that Caroline/Carolina had both Wilhelmine and Hedewig as middle names.

Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: goldmith(?).

Johann married Carolina Wilhelmine Beck 123 126 <18 Oct 1829> in <Bov (Bau), Εbenrε, Sψnderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark>.126

Marriage Notes: A marriage record for 18 Oct 1829 in Bov gives the bride's name simply as Caroline Beck. It also lists the grooms parents as Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. Those are the same parents who appear in the death record for a Johann Jacob Casperson on 3 May 1869. The death record give's Johann's wife's name as Caroline Hedewig Beck. That was certainly the wife from 18 Oct 1829 in Bov. Caroline/Carolina's middle name(s) then are in doubt. Did she have both Wilhelmine and Hedewig? Or was this Johann's wife an entirely different person?

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Marie Hedewig Caspersen (christened on 30 Dec 1829 in Tonder, Tonder, Denmark)

         ii.  Andreas Anton Caspersen (born <1831>)

        iii.  Vilhelm Sivert Jacob Caspersen (born <1833>)

49       iv.  Anna Dorothea Caroline Caspersen (born <Jul 1835> in <Holstein>, Germany <Denmark> - died aft <1910> in <Humboldt, Iowa>, United States)

          v.  Hans Ferdinand Caspersen (christened on 8 Apr 1838 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sψnderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark)

         vi.  Amalia Wilhelmine Caspersen (christened on 11 Apr 1841 in Bov (Bau), Aabenraa, Sψnderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark)


99. Carolina Wilhelmine Beck,123 126 daughter of Andreas Beck 126 and Gerthro Johannsen,.180

Research Notes: There is a death record for a Johann Jacob Caspersen on 3 May 1869 in Bylderup, Tψnder, Denmark, but his wife's name is given as Caroline Hedewig Beck. He may have been a different person from Carolina's husband. However, if the name Hedewig can be verified, Johann's parents were Peter Caspersen and Hedewig Petersen. Caroline's name could have had both Wilhelmine and Hedewig in the middle. Were there two separate women?

If these Caroline/Carolina persons are verified as one and the same, then the marriage on 18 Oct 1829 in Bov and her parents Andreas Beck and Gerthro Johannsen are also verified.

Carolina married Johann Jacob Caspersen 123 125 <18 Oct 1829> in <Bov (Bau), Εbenrε, Sψnderjylland (Schleswig-Holstein), Denmark>.126 Johann was born in 1798 and died <3 May 1869> in <Bylderup, Tψnder, Denmark>179 at age 71. Another name for Johann was Jorgen Jacob Caspersen.

100. Jens Hansen Smed,129 son of <Hans>, was born about 1763 in <Bolleskov, > Dronninglund, Nordjylland, Denmark and was buried on 20 May 1827 in Dronninglund, Nordjylland, Denmark. Another name for Jens was Jens Hansen Smed.

Jens married Christiane Jensdatter.129 Christiane was born in 1779-1780 and was buried in Dronninglund, Denmark.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Johannes Jensen (born about 1812)

         ii.  Karen Margrethe Jensdatter (born about 1815)

        iii.  Marie Jensdatter (born about 1818)

         iv.  Maren Margrethe Jensdatter (born in 1819)

50        v.  Jens Christian Jensen (born on 21 Oct 1821 in Bolle, Broenderslev-Dronninglund, Nordjylland, Denmark)


101. Christiane Jensdatter,129 daughter of <Jens>, was born in 1779-1780 and was buried in Dronninglund, Denmark.

Christiane married Jens Hansen Smed.129 Jens was born about 1763 in <Bolleskov, > Dronninglund, Nordjylland, Denmark and was buried on 20 May 1827 in Dronninglund, Nordjylland, Denmark. Another name for Jens was Jens Hansen Smed.

102. Hans Pedersen Hollet 4 was born in 1760 in <Laeso>, Denmark. Other names for Hans were Hans Pedersen Hollet and Hans Pedersen.

General Notes: From a letter by Donald Johnson (son of Marine Johnson) to Ardis Johnson Bynum on 5 June 1979:

"My great grandfather, Hans Pedersen Hollet, apparently was, for those times, a well-to-do man on the island of Laeso. He was 32 years older than my great grandmother Mette Kirstine Christensdatter, who was born about 1792. So my guess is that when Mette Kirstine died, her daughter's (Ane Cathrine) share of the estate was enough to enable her to buy the holdings at Hov. In 1866 Mette K. would have been 74 years old, and it may have taken a year or more to settle the estate, as there were five children born of this marriage. This is just a guess, but it does make sense that grandpa Jens Christian Jensen didn't get rich farming and fishing; or, at least, as readily as the Hollets could with their milling and timbering business."

Hans married Mette Kirstine Christensdatter.4 Mette was born in 1792 in Laeso, Denmark and died about 1866 about age 74.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Birgette Marie Hansdatter (born in 1829)

51       ii.  Ane Cathrine Hansdatter (born about 1830 in <Hoellet>, Nordjyllands, Denmark)

        iii.  Hans Hansen (born in 1832)

         iv.  Dorthe Kirstine Hansdatter (born in 1833)

          v.  Christen Hansen (born in 1836)


103. Mette Kirstine Christensdatter,4 daughter of <Christen>, was born in 1792 in Laeso, Denmark and died about 1866 about age 74.

Mette married Hans Pedersen Hollet.4 Hans was born in 1760 in <Laeso>, Denmark. Other names for Hans were Hans Pedersen Hollet and Hans Pedersen.

104. Reverend Charles Wells Wesley Talbot, son of Lt. Richard Talbott 181 182 and Temperance Wells, was born on 28 Sep 1791 in Washington, Pennsylvania, United States, died on 22 Oct 1874 in Ironton, Lawrence, Ohio, United States at age 83, and was buried in Woodland Cemetery, Ironton, Lawrence, Ohio, United States.183 184

Hauntings at Woodlawn Cemetery (from http://www.forgottenoh.com/Counties/Lawrence/woodland.html ) :

"Woodland Cemetery in Ironton is said to be haunted by the ghost of a young woman whose abusive husband killed her by throwing her down a flight of stairs. A life-sized statue of her stands above her grave, and a handprint appears on its cheek even after the cheek has been sandblasted. The statue is supposed to be warm all the time, even in the coldest months.

"Woodlawn is also said to be home to the ghost of a Russian ballerina, who is entombed in one of the family mausoleums. Her likeness is carved into the mausoleum. On nights with full moons, it is said, you can see her dancing outside her final resting place.

"Dr. Joseph W. Lowry also haunts Woodland, seeking vengeance for his murder and mutilation. Dr. Lowry is often seen with his mother, who died from a broken neck when she was thrown from her carriage by a spooked horse. They walk together toward the cemetery gates but never make it past the highway bridge. "

Research Notes: Eliza Smith McMunn's lineage is dependent upon data obtained from Rod Blackman via www.familysearch.org 8/26/06. Appears to be well researched.

From Jeanine Wallace (email 12 Jan 2010): "George and Barbara have their own headstone. Originally George was buried downtown Guelph, he was the second person to be buried in that cemetary. The cemetary has since been moved to the Woodlawn cemetary were most of the family is buried now. When George passed away he and the family were living in the Scotch Block just outside of Guelph, now a little intersection called Marden. Grandpa says that he heard that Barbara and her sons were quite a burden on the neighbours after George died because they certainly didn't have much."

From "Bethany History" (http://www.bethanyuc.org/Sub/bethany_history_1.htm):
"Another early settler was Mrs. George Wallace who with her husband and four sons, John, Alexander, Donald and Hugh, in the year 1825, left Scotland on the sailing vessel "Planet" for South America where they landed at Carracus, Venezuela. Eighteen months later they arrived in Guelph known as the LaGuayra settlers. George Wallace died August 18, 1828 and was the second body buried in the old cemetery behind Chalmers Church which is now a city parking lot. Mrs. Wallace and her four sons then settled in Pilkington where the sixth generation is still residing."


General Notes: Donald Wallace (1816-1902) letter to Ed H. Wallace dated 4 Jun 1896 has b. 9 Jan 1775:

"His [Alexander's] oldest son, Lachlin, was my great-grandfather; his son John was my grandfather; one of his sons, George, was my father. He [George] was born January 9th, 1775. He married Barbara Munro, 6th March, 1806. He was a factor for Culrain, a wealthy man, then he went as overseer for a gentleman. On the 7th Oct 1825, he and wife and 4 sons left Scotland for South America. There he tried farming, but he did not like it. He left his [son] John there. He and family went to Canada West. He arrived at Guelph 26 September 1827. He settled on a farm there. On the 19th of next August he died. His wife [Barbara] was born in Ross[-s]hire 18 Aug 1737 [sic]. She died at Woolwich, Feb. 4, 1844 He had four sons--John, Donald, Hugh, Alexander. John was born at Ross[-s]hire, 13th of April 1813. He died in South America 11th of March, 1848. Donald was born 14th of February 1845. Hugh was born in Sutherland, 8th July, 1819. Died. Alexander was born in Sutherland on the 3rd of February, 1822. Barbara Wallace and her three sons removed from near Guelph to Woolwich 20th April, 1833. On a genealogical tree of the family of Wallaces in Ross[-s]hire, by a cousin of mine, I saw 88. Some more might be added since. One of them, Lachlin, had 10 children. One of them was John, my grandfather."

Narrative by Don Wallace (Donald C. Wallace, III) on 1 July 2010, in email to Karen (Johnson) Fish:

Wallace origins in Scotland with immigration story to Canada via Colombia ca. 1815-20. It's a doozy: the entire clan worked under the Earl of Cromartie up on the Northeast coast for about 200+ years. The head Wallace was The Grange, or clan leader, and in the custom of the time that meant full employment and housing for the rest of the family.

All was going well when [George] Wallace married Barbara Munro, whose brother was a notorious cattle rustler, aka The Black Drover. Barbara got her husband to temporarily borrow the entire year's budget for the estate, about 300 pounds sterling, to finance buying (rustling, probably) cattle on the English border for sale elsewhere in Northern England. Instead, the Black Drover kept the money and said he'd been ripped off. This made [George] W an embezzler, and he and the family were forced to leave the estate.

He took them to the far north to start a Gaelic school--a revolutionary act at the time of the Enclosures, which were forcing crofters off the Highlands down into the textile mills of England or overseas as immigrants. The school failed. He petitioned the church to resettle the family, about 17 people, and they took what was offered: a missionary settlement in the highlands of Colombia, which was a vast ungoverned breakaway country, including Venezuela and Panama. The idea of introducing Protestantism in an overwhelming Catholic country didn't go over well. After a neighbor led a stray cow up to their front porch and plunged a knife into its heart, [George] petitioned the church again for resettlement. They were sent to Canada, landed in Guelph, Ontario, around 1822. And [George], totally burnt out by then, up and died [in 1828].

I gathered all of this from a box of letters handed down, the oldest dating from the 1640s. I found the box while spending the night in grandfather Don Wallace's house the night after his death. I spent a few hours reading everything and made my father open a safe deposit box to safeguard it. And then--it's so sad as to be unbelievable--at some point the deposit was closed and the box just thrown out. It just about broke my heart then, and does now, telling you. (And that's why I'm telling you. Those of us who care are few and far between.)

The family [of John D. Wallace] followed the Red River south into the Dakota territories, founding Drayton, and maybe another town or two. We still have the homestead from the 1870s--on the "bad" side of the Red River--though there is only one person left alive who has seen it, we lease it to a hay farmer. The reason all of the Wallaces headed West (or East, one brother helping to incorporate Suffolk County in New York State) was the land was in such poor condition. If we'd picked land on the other side of the river, where the sediment was, we'd probably still be there...

One final thought for today: all of the family left Colombia except for the eldest son, Alexander [John?], aged 16, who stayed, and later ended up in Costa Rica, where it is said he married a princess. I thought this story was a fable until my mother and father began reminiscing about visits from a very snotty Costa Rican lady when they were young, who insisted she was a royal. This would probably have been a Bourbon dynasty line of descent, if it wasn't a case of putting on airs.

Research Notes: Lorna Wallace family tree has "George (John?) Wallace." Was John his middle name? His brother? Father? Also has b. 8 Jan 1775. Transcription of Donald Wallace letter of 4 June 1896 to Ed Wallace has 9 Jan 1775, but his gravestone and the family Bible say 8 January 1775 in Culrain.

http://worldconnect.rootsweb.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=tincanman&id=I110374
Has b. 1775 in Cromarty, Scotland.

Cromarty is very near to Rosskeen.

See also George's brother John, whose second marriage was to Catherine Munro. Barbara's sister? Is this John the reason for confusion about his name?
----------------
According to Jeannine Wallace 10/18/10, "George, husband to Barbara came to Canada with a wooden chest, I think I've mentioned this before. That chest has George's name on it with the middle initial 'A'."

Re: Looking for George Wallace-1775 and Barbara Munro-1789 of Rosshire
1 Mar 2009
pachinkoisforlovers

I am related to George Wallace and Barbara Munro through their son Donald.

here is the information that i have:
George Wallace, his Wife and their four sons left the port in Cromarty, Scotland and sailed on the vessel "Planet" in 7 Oct 1825 for South America. they went on the promise of land and other concessions that were never realized. In Carracas (LaGuayra), Venezuela and 18 mo. (1827)later arrived in Guelph Tp. CAN and were alloted land on the Elora Road (Scotch Block)and became known as the LaGuayra settlers. George dies Aug. 18 1828 and was the second body to be buried in the old cemetary behind Chalmers church.

From what i can find i believe that George, Barbara and three of their sone (George, Alexander and Hugh) went to Canada. I have mixed reports but have come to believe that their son John stayed in Carracas where he died some years later.

Hugh Wallace (b. 1819 Scotland-5 Sept 1881 Wellington co. ON) married Margaret Metcalf. they had 9 children.

I have your relative Alexander Wallace (b. 28 Feb 1822 Scotland - 29 Sept 1892 ON) marrying Mary Ann Elizabeth Cunningham. they had 11 children.

My G-G Grandfather Donald Wallace (b.14 Feb 1816 Scotland- d.1902 Pasadena, CA) married Harriet Lasby in 1838. they had 9 children.

General Notes: Letter from Catherine Ross (by then married to Young) about the death of her brother John

To: John Wallace
Sun Office 112 Strand London
Jan 29 1827
My dear Uncle,
I fully intended to have written to you two months ago, in the first place I was waiting to hear more satisfactory accounts from Colombia and since I received the melancholy intelligence of my poor brother's death I felt little disposed for writing.
Mr Young has sent you a paper with an account of him in it written by Mr Young which he has copied into all the newspapers here.

I saw a gentleman yesterday that has just arrived from Lagunyea who gives a most dismal account of the people's distress, but I suppose you have heard from George all the particulars. Their chief wish is to come home, or to be sent to North America, but the Association will do nothing for them. It has proved a most unfortunate course and has brought impossible misfortune on our poor family. Mrs Ross and her family are left quite destitute. She has three children, two boys and a girl. The mother and the youngest have gone to live with her father in Edinburgh and we have taken the other two. It would be rather hard that his poor children would be left friendless after what he had done for his father's family. With all his failings he had a most affectionate warm heart.

All the accounts we have had of his illness and death are in the Sun. It is strange that we should have been so long without hearing of is the heard from the consol at Philadelphia who sent an inventory of all John's things. We have written to him to get all the particulars he can relate to his illness and of course you have heard that he paid Walter a visit in Demerara. He was just after parting with him a fortnight when he died. He was very unlucky in all his undertakings but in my opinion the Association have behaved most infamously.

I had a letter from Walter am Saturday dated 1st November the poor fellow did not then hear of his loss. He will feel it the more on account of so recently having seen him. Indeed I dread the consequence upon his health. He says he expects to hear from you shortly. I saw a gentleman who came from Charles last summer. He was in the enjoyment of very excellent health but has so of riches. But we must hope for the best. I must now conclude for I do not feel disposed to enter into long particulars of my own affairs at present.

The Sun is doing wonders I believe I wrote to you time the birth of my youngest daughter who was born 9th of last October and is a fine little girl called Catherine after her mother.
Give my compliments to all my relations and friends. Mr Young writes with me in fondest regards to you and Mrs Wallace and I remain, my dear uncle, your affectionate niece
Catharine Young

I shall be glad to hear from you as soon as possible as I am going to write to Charles and he will feel interest in all the Roshkeen news. Write fully and if George says anything of John let me know. C.Y.

I shall expect your answer in a fortnight.

Birth Notes: The transcription of Donald Wallace's letter has 18 August 1737, which is probably a misreading of 18 August 1787 or 1789. According to Jeanine Wallace, the family Bible of George & Barbara has b. at Arshrop, Parish of Ross-shire, Scotland on August 18, 1789. This is born out by her gravestone (b. August 18, 1789 and d. February 4, 1849).

In the 1851 census, there were many Munros in Rosskeen and several place names containing "Ardross." One was a castle, a couple were farms. A lot of individuals were born in Creich. Most of those folks were labourers or lodgers. See http://listsearches.rootsweb.com/th/read/SCT-SUTHERLAND/2002-02/1014013271

Death Notes: Donald Wallace (letter of 4 June 1896) gives death date as 4 February 1844. Jeanine Wallace (email 2 Jan 2010) says her headstone has 4 February 1849.

Excerpts from....The Lasby Story
by Bill Lasby, Toronto, Canada.. June 18, 1969
(original is 9 typed pages)

at http://www.angelfire.com/in3/vanbrink/lasby.html:

In 1824, Charles Lasby and his wife, Margaret Challenor, and their family arrived in Pilkington from Stafforshire. Their arrival is recorded in John Connon's book as follows:

Charles Lasby and Margaret Challenor, his wife, were from Staffordshire, England. The date of their arrival is uncertain but it was not later than 1828. The farm on which they settled was on the south side of Cox's Creek at Ponsonby, and is now called "Fife" farm. The reason for selecting this was that the timber was thin along the banks of the stream while the beaver meadow there was heavy growth of wild grass with which to feed their oxen. Their house was on the side side leading to Bethany Church and the aged parents were buried on the Edgerton Fife farm.

They had a famliy of twelve of whom Joseph Lasby was one. He lived on that corner farm northeast of the Bethany Church. In 1837 he married Matilda Crowther and it is from this family that all in this locality by the name of Lasby are descended. Of their family of one girl and eight boys, the only ones now living are Mrs. John Seaton, of Altona, Michigan and Mr. Walter Lasby of Northfield, Minnesota. Joseph Lasby died in January, 1878 and Mrs. Lasby died in June of 1854. [the above book excerpt was published in 1930]

Bill Lasby continues...

In my search for details on the family I have developed information, some of which supplements Mr. Connon's information and some that differs from his.

I have established that the family arrived in 1824 and that Charles Lasby died in 1870. He is not buried on the Fife farm as recorded but his headstone is in the old Ponsonby cemetary. In my search I have located information on only five children of Charles Lasby and Margaret Challenor, and I have some questions as to whether or not there were twelve children as recorded by Connon.

My sister, Emily, who also has a keen interest in the family, spoke to the late Thomas Bye many years ago concerning the elder members of the Lasby family. He recalled Charles Lasby as an elderly man. At that time, Mr. Bye was a young boy and had been sent by his mother for a bucket of coals to light their fire. He recalls Mr. Lasby, who was working in the garden, as a very kindly short man with a sandy beard.

From http://www.waynecook.com/rose.html - the Ponsonby Pioneer Cemetery Rose Garden webpage:

following email was sent in by Jim Bellamy:
Some of the individuals listed are ancestors of mine. The family info I have collected suggests that several changes would make the info a little more accurate.
4. Joseph Labby D. Jan. 25th, 1878, 67 yrs.
5. Matilda wife of the above D. June 3rd., 1854, 36 yrs. old.
8. Also his daughter Mary wife of Daniel Peckover, D. Feb. 17th, 1855, 32 yrs. old.
10. Mary wife of Joseph Labby D. Dec. 31st, 1876, 28 yrs., 8 mos., 25 days.
14. Charles Labby D. June 10th, 1870, 89 yrs. old a native of Staffordshire.
The info I have and suggestions are as follows:
Charles Lasby (listed as 14. Charles Labby) was born circa 1781 in Milwich, Staffordshire, England. He married Margaret CHALLENNOR on 29 Jan 1807 in Milwich, Staffordshire, England. Margaret was born on 19 Sept 1784 in Milwich, Staffordshire, England. They emigrated to Canada circa 1828. Margaret died in 1856 in Ponsonby, Wellington, Canada West. (She should be listed in that cemetary.) Charles Lasby died 10 June 1870 in Elora, Ontario.
Joseph Lasby (listed as 4. Joseph Labby) was one of the sons of Charles Lasby and Margaret. Joseph Lasby was born 9 Dec 1810 in Milwich, Staffordshire, England. He married (date ?) Matilda Crowther (listed as 5. Matilda), born 12 June 1818 in London, Upper Canada. Matilda (Crowther) Lasby died 3 June 1854. Joseph Lasby died on 25 Jan 1878.
The name "Peckover" perhaps should be "Peskover". Not entirely sure but another ancestor Oliver Lasby married a Lydia Peskover in 1872 inElora, Ontario.

-----------
From The Early History of Elora, Ontario and Vicinity, pp. 28-29:

"Charles Lasby and Margaret Challener, his wife, were from Staffordshire, England. The date of their arrival in Pilkington is uncertain, but it was not later than 1828. The farm upon which they settled was on the south side of Cox's Creek, at Ponsonby, and is now called the 'Fife' farm. Their reason for selecting this was that the timber was thin along the banks of the stream, while on the beaver meadow there was a heavy growth of wild grass with which to feed their oxen. Their house was on the side road leading to Bethany Church, and the aged parents were buried on the 'Egerton Fife' farm. They had a family of twelve, of whom Joseph Lasby was one. He lived on that corner farm northeast of the Bethany Church. In 1837 he married Matilda Crowther, and it is from their family that all in this locality by the name of Lasby are descended."

Noted events in his life were:

• Religion: a Methodist.

• Emigrated: from England to Canada, 1824.

• Settled: on south side of Cox's Creek, 1828, Ponsonby, Nichol Twp, (Wellington), Upper Canada (Ontario), (Canada).

Birth Notes: Sources on the Internet have her born on 19 September 1784 in Milwich with a death date of 1856 in Ponsonby.

Research Notes: Lorna Wallace family tree has "Mary (Taylor)." However, further reearch has determined that Mary Taylor was on a different branch of the Wallace family tree (see Mary Flewelling, mother of Elizabeth Bastedo).

Source: History of Long Island: From Its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time, vol. III

Birth Notes: May have been born about 1810 in Ontario.

Research Notes: First husband of Mary Flewelling.

From Commemorative Biographical Record of the County of York, Ontario, p. 37:
"John, of Nelson, married Mary Flewelling and had issue: Maurice, William, Jacob, Gilbert, Elizabeth and Catherine;"
---------
According to David Schachow in Genforum posting 4 Aug 2002 (Bastedo Family Genealogy Forum), John's middle name was Albert. Another researcher, Thomas A. Murray, has the middle initial C. A transcribed Census record has a John Bastedo with middle initial T, born about 1810, and probably a different person.

Noted events in his life were:

• Residence: 1815, Nelson Twp, Halton, Upper Canada (Ontario), (Canada).

• Census: 1871, Ontario, Canada.

• Census: Canada, 1881, Ontario, Canada.

John married Mary Flewelling in 1815 in <Nelson Twp, Halton>, Ontario, Canada. Mary was born on 24 Jan 1793 and died on 26 Feb 1883 at age 90. Another name for Mary was Mary Taylor.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Maurice Bastedo (born in 1816 in Halton, Upper Canada (Ontario), Canada - died <1855>)

119. Mary Flewelling, daughter of John Flewelling 201 and Mary Watts,201 was born on 24 Jan 1793 and died on 26 Feb 1883 at age 90. Another name for Mary was Mary Taylor.

Birth Notes: The birth and death dates I have provided are based upon the obituary of Mrs. Mary Taylor (aka Great-Grandma Taylor to Will Wallace), which would make her dates 24 Jan 1793 to 26 Feb 1883.

Research Notes: The Wallace family tree constructed by Lorna (Wallace) Johnson in the 1940's has "Mary (Taylor)" as the mother of Harriet Lasby. That was probably an error.
----------
From Karen (Johnson) Fish 17 June 2010:

I am in possession of an obituary, torn from an 1883 newpaper, for Mrs. Mary Taylor, who I believe is this same person. The clipping was tucked inside a folded note written by William H. Wallace in 1880 (when he was 10 years old) or soon thereafter. The year "1883" is written in ink on the obituary.

William H. Wallace's note reads:
My Great-Grandma Taylor's son, had this knife thirty years, and, when he died, he gave it to her, and she had it twenty years, and then she gave it to me in the year 1880, and I am going to see how long I can keep it. W.H.W.

Who was the son who originally acquired the knife, around 1830?

Her obituary reads:
"Died.
On Monday afternoon, Feb. 26th [1883] at the residence of Mr. Thomas Crebbin. Mrs. Mary Taylor, aged ninety years, one month and two days. Funeral to take place from the house on Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m."

Thomas Crebbin was the second husband of Mary's daughter Elizabeth (Bastedo) Patmore.
---------

Mary married John <Albert> Bastedo 153 in 1815 in <Nelson Twp, Halton>, Ontario, Canada. John was born in 1792 in Stamford, Lincoln (Niagara Region), Eastern District, Upper Canada (Ontario), (Canada)201 and died after 1881.

Mary next married < > Taylor after 1881.

Research Notes: Second husband of Mary Flewelling.




120. Daniel Frederick "Frederick" Papst,158 159 160 son of Johan Adam Papst (U.E.L.) 20 203 204 and Eva Marie Ham,114 was born on 23 Jun 1768 in Albany (Schoharie), New York, (United States), was christened on 17 May 1771 in Schenectady Reformed Church, Schenectady, New York, (United States), died on 28 Mar 1848 in Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada at age 79, and was buried in Papst Family Farm, Lunenburg Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada.205 Other names for Daniel were Daniel Fridrich Papst, Frederick Papst, Daniel Frederick Poapst, Frederick Poapst, and Frederick Popps.

---------
George Cloakey's email of 21 December 2009 includes the following information from Sam Poaps:

Ron Poapst's list of Daniel Frederick's children, obtained from his grandmother Velma McEwan, taken from the "Gideon Adams Bible," consists of 9 individuals:
John F Poapst (b 1795)
Mary Poapst (b 1798)
Elizabeth Popps (b 1800)
Peter Popps (b 1802)
George Popps (b 1804)
Catherine Popps (b 1807)
Ann(e) Popps (b 1810)
Margaret Popps (b 1813)
Jacob F Popps (b 1818)

Not listed in that family Bible are:
Frederick (b 1798) - Possibly the same person as John Frederick?
Susannah (b 1799)

There is a record of John applying to add an "F" to his name, which indicates that he did not have a middle initial prior to that time. Would he do this if he had a younger brother named Frederick? Is it possible he added "Frederick" in remembrance of a younger brother who died in childhood?

Noted events in his life were:

• Occupation: Yeoman.

• Owned: Lot 22 in concession 9 in Winchester, 1803, Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada.

• Owned: land in Osnabruck, H 404 P76, 22 Jan 1811, Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada.

Marriage Notes: May have been married on 24 April 1793 in Cornwall, Ontario.

Children from this marriage were:

60        i.  John Frederick Poapst (born on 8 Nov 1795 in Northfield Station, Cornwall Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada - died on 2 Oct 1867 in Lunenburg, Osnabruck Twp (South Stormont), Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada)

121. Mary Werely,160 161 daughter of Peter Wereley (U.E.L.) 207 208 and Maria Schmitt,208 was born on 23 May 1776 in Schoharie, Albany (Schoharie), New York, United States,206 died in 1858 in Cornwall, Ontario, Canada at age 82, and was buried in Papst Family Farm, Lunenburg Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada.206 Other names for Mary were Mary Wardle, Maria Werley, Mary Werley, and Mary Whereley.

Birth Notes: Birthdate may have been 13 Dec 1776. FindaGrave.com has 23 May 1776.

Research Notes: Several variations of her surname appear in records, including Mary Wardle or Mary Werely (Wereley), although some variant of Werely is most common. John Poaps stated 3 Aug 2002 that the name was Wardle "in the family bible of the Poapst family in Cornwall, Ontario." It is "Whereley" in a handwritten transcription by Vella (Velma) McEwan from the "Gideon Adams" Bible. It is spelled both "Whereley" and "Wereley" in another Poapst family Bible. All are in different hands.

Was Daniel Papst her second husband perhaps?

From http://archiver.rootsweb.com/th/read/ont-stormont-dundas-glengarry/2004-02/1076776417:

"...Alonzo Wereley's grandfather, Peter Wereley, together with a brother George Wereley and two sisters, Mary Wereley, who afterwards became Mrs. Frederick Poapst, and Margaret Wereley, who married a Mr. Coons, all came from New York State as [United Empire] Loyalists. Peter was born in 1789 and at the age of 17 he and his brother and sisters were among the first settlers on Crown Lands in Osnabruck's 4th concession. He died in 1871 at the age of 82 years and Alonzo Wereley is carrying on the family tradition as to age very well.

"'I often heard my grandfather tell of the depredations of wolves in those early days,' said Mr. Wereley. 'Wolves were very plentiful and one day one of his cows came home with her face all scratched and bleeding after fighting to keep the wolves away from her calf.'

"Peter and George Wereley settled on adjoining farms, each having 100 acres and Peter often carried feed in a sack on his back across the length of one farm to the other."

From "St. Lawrence Valley Cemetery" website (http://stlawrencevalleycemetery.ca/history.html) :

Wood Monument

The Wood Monument is of great historical interest. It is situated at the south side of the cemetery, overlooking Lake St. Lawrence and visible from all areas. It was originally located in St. David's Anglican Church Cemetery, Wales, a small hamlet just south of the present site. The memorial is unique in design. It is made from metal manufactured at an iron foundry owned by Col. John R. Wood whose memory it commemorates. The foundry was located on the Wood Farm, a short distance west of the Village of Lunenburg, about two and a half miles north of the cemetery. The Wood Monument is surrounded in the cemetery by a number of monuments bearing the Wood name, all descendants of Jonas Wood, U.E.L. Tribute is paid to the memory of Col. John R. Wood in the Historical Atlas of Ontario-Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry-1879. The descendants of Jonas Wood, (grandfather of John R. Wood) and his wife Sarah Osborne are many. The eight children of Jonas and Sarah all married and had large families and for the last two hundred years these have multiplied and spread out over Eastern Ontario and many other parts of Canada and the United States.

Noted events in his life were:

• Served: in the King's Royal Regiment of New York (K.R.R.N.Y.) during the Revolutionary War, until Spring 1784. 215

EXTRACTS OF MANUSCRIPT BY JOHN WALLACE (the younger)

My father, John Wallace, had the farms of Culrain and Gushack for 13 years from 1779-1792 at a rent of 140 bolls part barley part meal and duties of money, peats and hens. At that time he had no coup carts nor pick and spade. For driving the manure to the land he had a kind of cart and a basket of wicker work. The wheels of the cart were constructed of three sticks 6" in diameter which were crossed and fixed in the centre by an axle that turned with the wheels on tum'lers as they were called. Stones as well as manure were carried in these carts and they would carry a heavy load. The wicker basket cost a shilling and would last for two years. For carrying home peats and leading corn he made a very simple cart of two long shafts with cross sticks in the bottom and standing rungs with top rails. As soon as the crop was put in the carts were taken off the tum'lers and put in some shed until the peats were ready for carrying home. All the carriage of corn, meal and potatoes was done in bags on horseback. Going to the mill seven or eight horses would be tied in a row, the one to the other with halters made of horse hair. A boy had the first horse while two men were employed to keep the bags from falling. My father had three ploughs and six oxen to each plough. The ploughs were made by himself almost entirely of wood, all the iron used being a strong culter, a sock and a large hook fired at the point of the beam with a staple and a few nails which were required to fix the mouldboard of deals.. Then the oxen were strong, the ploughs would work as well as any made for years after. The harrows were made of birch, with five rungs across through the bills. He had no graips only two large forks, and in place of a mattock he had a croman or half mattock. For a spade he had a large wooden shovel mounted with iron at the point and up both sides. The thing was allowed to lie in the byres for a week and then it was carted to the midden on the wheelbarrow, or sometimes on a two handed barrow such as was used by the masons. Women took part in all the farm, except ploughing, threshing and carrying bags. Neither clover or turnips were grown, but there would be about sixteen bolls potatoes. The work in summer after sowing the barley about the 20th May was to cut the peats, and then to make middens for next year's barley. These middens were made of soil from outlying land mixed with the manure of horses and cattle. Horses and cattle got very little corn, but when any of the cattle were weak in spring they got sheaves of oats in the morning. At that time there were very few large farms. On the farm of Millcraig, (Mr. Wallace occupied Millcraig and Nonikiln till 1851) about 1760 there were eight tenants and ten ploughs with 60 animals, three ploughs are now sufficient. In my young days the large farm of Newmore was occupied by Alexander Rossor MacFinlay and his two sons, the rent being £80 and 80 bolls of grain. He and his sons were altogether of the old school. He had eight horses to carry home his peats using the rung carts with the tumblers. There was not so much as a pin of iron about the harness of the eight horses. For shoulder chains and hames birch wands were used instead of iron. I remember well seeing a pair of horses passing Nonikiln from Strathcarron to Inverness with furniture and there was not a single link or pin of iron about the horses or cart. The traces were made of deer skin and were tough and strong. The collars were made of ropes of straw twined threefold. These would last about a year but when made of loch rushes 4 ft. in length would last two years. The farmers made the harness themselves; in short they made everything. There was no need for saddlers, but weavers were numerous, and they got plenty of work to do. There was only one merchant in the parish of Rosskeen and it was from him my father bought his first spade. I wondered much at it, as it was the first spade I had ever seen.

MARRIED MEN SERVANTS WAGES

Married men for twelve months got £4, six bolls of meal, two days to cut peats, straw for a stirk, land for potatoes for their own manure land for sowing two pints of linseed. Shearers got (corn?) eighteen pecks of oatmeal by measure.

DIET OF SERVANTS

At breakfast "brochan" and pease meal bread; at dinner in Summer whey and bread; at supper sowens or "brochan". There was cabbage for dinner once a week and next day porridge made of what remained of the cabbage was taken with butter at breakfast. My father always fed a cow to be killed in winter, and as long as it lasted the servants got broth and sometimes beef. During winter and spring there was always plenty of home made ale and the servants occasionally got ale, butter and curds, but porridge was seldom seen. The servants got three feasts in the year, one on Old New Years Day, another when the barley was sown and another when the shearing was finished.

CLOTHING AND SOCIAL CUSTOMS

The clothing was very simple and plain. The men wore black knee breeches and bright blue coats made by their wives. The young men generally wore similar attire but some had kilts. Even the larger farmers wore broad blue bonnets and no hats were to be seen. About 1792 some favourite sons began to get trousers, and by 1850 breeches had almost disappeared. In my father's time no farmers' wives had prints or cotton gowns. Their gowns were of their own making, chiefly wincey. The wives wore a small tartan shoulder plaid, and it was considered decent for a farmer's wife to have a clean white towel on her head above the mutch or cap. No young ladies covered their head until married. Their hair was their pride. It was all combed down their shoulders and when at work was tied at their back with tape. At the marriage ceremony, the bride was always covered with a scarlet plaid, and if she had not one of her own got the loan of one. The gatherings at marriages were usually very large, and there was music and. dancing on four nights, on Thursday night at the feet washing; on Friday night after the marriage; on Saturday evening and part of the day and again on Tuesday at what was called the home wedding.

MEMORABLE YEARS:

Under this heading Mr. Wallace refers to the remarkably wet year of 1782 which was called the Black Year. There was scarcely a dry day during the whole Spring, while summer and autumn were also very wet. The crop was late and miserably poor, in fact the greater portion of it never ripened at all. Mr. Calder, the minister in Roskeen, was paid in grain and all he got in that year was 16 bolls of barley from my father and these 16 bolls scarcely made 8 bolls of meal. Many cattle died in the spring but none of the inhabitants succumbed to the hardships of the famine. I was told, however, that many deaths would have occurred had it not been that cargoes of white pease which had been intended for the troops engaged in the American War, but which on the announce-ment of peace, were sent North and came to Ross-shire and the pease distributed among the more needful. My father was present at the distribution. The following year was as singularly dry as 1782 was exceptionally wet. The crop was very early, some of it being stored by the end of August, but owing to the inferior quality of much of the seed of the crop of 1782, the general yield was very poor. Many farmers fell in arrears and some of them never got over it. The year 1792 was quite as remarkable in Ross-shire. A few years before this sheep farming was begun in the County of Ross and the natives believing that this innovation would compromise their comforts and privileges begun about this year to display formidable opposition to the movement. The native farmers, tradesmen and labourers resolved to gather the whole stock of sheep in Sutherland and Ross and drive them over the southern borders into Inverness-shire. Accordingly arrangements for the outrage against sheep farmers was made by proclamation at the Church doors. A mob of people met and having collected above 10,000 sheep, they were proceeding with their flock along the heights of the parish of Alness, when they learned that Colonel Sir Hector Munro of Novar was on his way from Fort George with a company of the 42nd Highlanders to suppress their depredations. The sheep gatherers dispersed immediately, but a good many were apprehended and tried in the Circuit Court at Inverness. Two were transported but the others got off with imprisonment, The commencement of this affair was as follows:

Captain Allan Cameron and his brother Alexander Cameron took the farms of Fyrish and Culcraggie along with the grazings of Gildermorrie on the heights of Alness. The Ardross tenants had previously grazed their cattle all summer on Gildermorrie, and having wandered back to their old pastures, the Camerons pounded them and enclosed them in a large fank which they had built for the purpose. That day the Ardross tenants were hearty at a wedding in Strathrushdale, but on hearing what had happened to their cattle, they proceeded in a body to Gildermorrie where an ugly fight took place between them and the Camerons. The year 1800 was a very dry year scarcely a drop of rain fell during the Summer. The crop was not half average in bulk. I got 50 shillings for barley, 48 shillings for oatmeal and 40 shillings for potatoes. The year 1811 was very wet and the greater portion of the crop dreadfully damaged. I got 54 shillings for barley that year. The crops of 1816 and 1817 were also bad while in 1836 the whole crop would scarcely pay my rent.

Death Notes: http://www.ponderroses.com/SteveJohnsonFamily/wc02/wc02_062.htm has b. 1743, d. 1829 in Stamford, Ontario, age 86.

http://bousfield.itgo.com/bastedooutline.htm has d. 1808, Halton, Ontario.

Research Notes: From http://bousfield.itgo.com/bastedoname.htm, quoting information compiled by Edward C. Russell, Ottawa, Ontario. January 1983:

"In 1628, the story goes, the progenitor of the Bastedo's in North America, having embraced the reformed faith in this contentious Reformation period, was soon in trouble with the Roman Catholic hierarchy and the church court, the Inquisition. These Bastedo's fled from Spain and headed for the Netherlands, the historic refuge for religious dissenters and Protestant heretics. But within the year, it is said, the Bastedo's crossed to England, another hospitable land and a jump-off place for a new life in the New World. They landed eventually in the colony of New York.

"At this point the story becomes a bit puzzling. In 1628, where New York now stands, was called New Amsterdam and was certainly in the hands of the Dutch. The English were not in firm control of the colony until late in the 17th century. Indeed, that control just preceded the arrival of the Dutchman, William of Orange, on the throne of England.

"One account states that several of these American Bastedos lie buried beneath stones still extant in Little Trinity Church-yard on Broadway near Wall Street in New York City. So, when this trans-Atlantic migration was made, is not at all clear. However, it is known that Bastedos eventually settled in what was then called Albany County and owned a large tract of land which they developed as farmland, where the city of Schenactady now stands. Jacob Bastedo the progenitor of all the Canadian Bastedos, was born there in 1743.

"Jacob Bastedo of Schenectady was born in that place, probably on the family farm, in 1743. So far, we do not know the identity of his parents nor the number of siblings. In 1767, he married a girl of Dutch descent, Clarissa Jean vanSlyke, One source says that Clarissa was a great grand daughter of Cornelious vanSlyke 'The Trader,' who in turn was a grandson of Cornelious Antonissen vanSlyke, a Hollander, and the first patentee of the Katskill (1746). The vanSlykes are said to have come to North America about the same time as the Bastedos (1628)... Much of the vanSlyke land came from OchToch and her son, Jacques, although Cornelious himself had land grants."
-----------

From Commemorative Biographical Record of the County of York, Ontario, p. 37:

The Bastedos trace their descent from the important Spanish family of De La Bastido, of whom the chief is the Marquis De La Bastida, member of the Chamber of Deputies for the Balearic Islands. Another is Don Guillermo De La Bastida, treasurer of the Province of Badajoz. The progenitor of the Bastedo family, having embraced the faith of the Reformed Church, was forced to leave Spain and take refuge in Holland, whence about 1778 he or one of his descendants emigrated to America, ultimately settling at Schenectady, New York. Of this branch of the family was Jacob Basted, as the name became Anglicized, who, abandoning a valuable estate in Schenectady, came to Canada as a United Empire Loyalist, and settled first at Cataraqui (Kingston), where he had a grant of 800 acres, but removed to Stamford, County of Welland, Ont. He married Clarissa Jean Van Slyke, whose sister married a Van Buren, and their son, Martin Van Buren, was President of the United States from 1837 to 1841. Another sister was married to Major Tice, a Royalist officer. The children of Jacob and Clarissa Bastedo were: (1) Abraham; (2) Lewis; (3) David; (4) Joseph, killed at the battle of Chippewa; (5) Gilbert Tice; (6) John, of Nelson, married Mary Flewelling and had issue... (7) Cornelius, killed in the war of 1812."

Birth Notes: May have been born about 1734.

Research Notes: Some disagreement whether last name was Pabst or Papst, but Papst is most likely. The German word Papst means "Pope." The individual who wrote his will for him spelled his name "Adam Papst," but Adam signed his name on that will as "Adam Babst."
---------
Some online sources show Adam's parents as Johann Paul Pabst and Maria Dorothea Weiss. This may be incorrect.

From http://www.papst-family.canadianwebs.com/custom2.html :
"Johan 'Adam' Pabst ( aka Papst; embarked at the Bay of Philadelphia, Pennasylvania about 1750, died in Osnabruck Township, Storemont County around 1803-1807) married Eva Maria Hamm b. 1736 married in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania"

From George Cloakey email 21 Dec 2009:
"Adam served in the Revolutionary War as a member of the 84th Regiment, the King's Royal Regiment of New York. In this regiment he served with Butler's Rangers, and was awarded land in the eastern part of Upper Canada. Arrived in America on the ship Two Brothers captained by Thomas Arnot. Docked in Philadelphia on or about September 28, 1753. Spelled Papts on roll of Butler's Rangers. Signed his will as Adam Babst."

Cloakey quotes Vernon Buckley from 10 Sep 2000:
"The information I have from a old German Bible. Adam Papstt arrived in Philadelphia November the 8th, 1752. John Papstt arrived in Philadelphia September 28, 1753. The letter says that there were five other brothers. Where they went or if they stayed in Germany --here is nothing on them."

Cloakey quotes Sheri LeQuia:
"I just received from Annette K. Burgert, the author and researcher of emigrants from Germany to North America, a book titled Master Index to the Emigrants Documented in the Published Works of Annette K. Burgert F.A.S.G., F.G.S.P. Included in this index is an immigration of Johan Adam Probst which I think is one alternate spelling of Pabst- I have seen this spelling used on Pabst families I have researched. This immigration date is given as 1752. That is a match for your man isn't it?!!! The Source Volume listed is Northern Kraichgau. If I understand this correctly- it refers to the book Eighteenth Centruy Emigrants from German Speaking Lands to North America. (note that this could included Canada) Vol I: The Northern Kraichgau. Breinigsville, PA (1983) The Pennsylvania German Society (1982 Annual Volume #16) Out of Print."

Cloakey quotes Bill Hayes:
"Genevieve M. Templeton was the next to the last child of thirteen children born to Frederick W. Templeton and Elizabeth J. Papst, with my grandfather ( Rudolph Papst Templeton) being the thirteenth. Genevieve wrote a letter in May of 1966, I believe to my father. In this letter she gave some family history. I will copy a few paragraphs from the last page, as it pertains to the Papst family.

"'I haven't much on the Papst side of the family, only family tales. One was the original Papst was an officer in the German army, and he fell in love with a serving maid, and as is the custom in then German army an officer can not marry beneath their rank, so the tale goes. He had her sent over to England and resigned his office in the German army and married the gal, and brought her to U.S. Landing in Pennsylvania at Phila.'"

Cloakey quotes Bill Hayes:
"Written by Lt/Col Ervan Amidon was the following. In 1991 he obtained a copy of a letter written in 1971 by Anna Alicia Papst, (died 1983) daughter of Capt. Rudolph Papst (b. 1858). Col. Amidon said he had done a certain amount of editing of the letter. Col. Amidon wrote:

'Rudolph Papst was born in 1750 or 1752 in Germantown, part of Philadelphia. His father was Adam Pabstt who left Bonn (1749 or 1751) in the Archbishopric of Cologne. Adam Pabstt fled to Hamburg where he hid on a British ship. His girl friend and her family were emigrating from the Palatinate on the Rhine, to Philadelphia. I don't know her name. (***Col. Amidon is convinced this was Eva Maria Hamm).

'Adam Pabst's father was a wealthy merchant who became Burgomaster of Bonn and had hoped to marry his son Adam, to an impoverished baroness. However, the son Adam gave his father the slip and was hidden in a barrel on the ship until the ship sailed from Hamburg. Then Adam Pabstt married the girl aboard ship. The ship sailed from Hamburg to Philadelphia.

'Adam Pabstt was a Roman Catholic and she was a Lutheran. They compromised and both went into the Church of England. Rudolph Papst, their oldest son, was a great church man.'"

From George Cloakey:
"Johan Adam who fought with Butler's Rangers was given his land, 300 acres in Winchester."

Cloakey quotes Bill Hayes from 15 Sep 2003:
Written below is a claim by Johan Adam Papst for the monetary loss of items due to his loyalty to the British government during the Revolutionary War. John Poaps sent this to Bill Hayes Sept 15, 2003.

So they got into Toronto, and I understand that is where they the Papst Hessians got their 160 acres on Young Street in Toronto, and which grandfather John Papst sold when he went to California. The story goes that Old Granny Papst had when she fled the colonial army was baby on one arm and a black cooking pot on the other. I have often heard my mother say "old Granny Papst couldn't speak English, so she must have lived a long time. There was an old Dutch Bible with family record in it.

from Harold Miller who did the research on Berne, NY area, stated the following in March 2008:
"Continuing my research to answer your questions, I find that Johan Adam Papst, father of Maria Papst, served in Butler's Rangers and was awarded land in the eastern part of Upper Canada according to George Cloakey.. John Papst, b. 1777, youngest brother of Maria Papst, died in 1869 in Osnabruck, Ontario. Maria's sister Elisabeth, married Gotlieb Otto, a distant cousin of mine, and they too moved to Osnabrouck (spelling?). Another brother, Rudoph Papst moved to Upper Canada. "
------------
From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~poaps/Biographies.htm:
Among the papers of Albert Wilson Otto (1856-1937) of Cut Knife, Sask., held by his descendants, is an account he recorded 1930 of an incident involving John Poapst. I know of no reason it would be passed down in the Otto family if it weren't related to the family of Johan Adam Papst.

"John Poapst was shot in the War of Independence with a charge of buckshot and was badly wounded. He managed to get away and his in a mow of hay in a barn. The enemy saw him and came into the barn looking for him. One of them came into the hay to look for him, and it was said by some of the old people that once it passed down through the hair of his head, but he laid quiet as he could and was not discovered by them. His wound was very painful and he was nearly starved with nothing to eat, but was afraid to venture out of his hiding place.

"When night came an old darkey and his wife came into the barn to do up some evening chores and he heard her saying, "I wonder where that poor man is? If I knew I would get him something to eat. John thought that this was only a ruse to lure him out to capture him, so he did not let them know that he heard them.

"The next evening he again hear her saying the same thing, but was still afraid that it only was a ruse to make him come out, so he lay still. His wound was now so painful and he was so hungry that he saw that he would die anyway. He made up his mind that if he heard her saying that again that he would venture out, which he did and nearly scared them into to fits for they were very superstitious and they thought he was a ghost.

"The old lady went to their cabin and brought him something to eat and then they hid him again until after night and the old darkey paddled him across the river to the British lines. After many narrow escapes, John at last reached the British lines in safety."

Other names for Eva were Eva Maria Hamm, Eva Marie Hamm, Eva Marie Hamm, and Eve Mary Hamm.

Marriage Notes: The source at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~poaps/FamilyTree.htm and an E-mail from George Cloakey 21 Dec 2009 have their marriage in 1756 in Philadelphia.

However, they may actually have been married on the ship from Hamburg to Philadelphia, which docked on or about 28 September 1753. This would place the year of their marriage in 1753.

According to Ronald Poapst (10/29/11), they were married by the ship's captain on the boat that carried them down the Rhine River when Johan Adam ran away from home. That would have been around 1752.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.  Rudolph Papst (born about 1759 in <(Schoharie)>, New York, (United States) - died on 29 Jul 1829 in Toronto, York, Upper Canada (Ontario), Canada)

         ii.  Anna Maria Papst (born about 1761 in Albany (Schoharie), New York, (United States) - died on 17 Feb 1848)

        iii.  Maria Barbara Papst (born on 7 Nov 1762 in Schoharie Twp, Albany (Schoharie), New York, (United States) - died in 1798 in Wisconsin, United States)

         iv.  Anna Hannah Papst (born about 1763 in <Schoharie>, Albany (Schoharie), New York, United States - died in 1798 in New York, United States)

          v.  Elisabeth Papst (born about 1765 in New York, (United States) - died about 1787 in Osnabruck Twp, Lunenburg (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Quebec (Ontario), Canada)

         vi.  Margretha Papst (born on 8 Aug 1767 in Palatine, (Montgomery), New York, (United States))

120     vii.  Daniel Frederick "Frederick" Papst (born on 23 Jun 1768 in Albany (Schoharie), New York, (United States) - died on 28 Mar 1848 in Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada)

       viii.  Catharina Papst (born on 30 Jul 1773 in <Schoharie>, Albany (Schoharie), New York, (United States))

         ix.  Johannes Papst (born on 12 Jul 1777 in Brunswick, (Rensselaer), New York, United States - died on 20 Jan 1869 in <Osnabruck Centre>, Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada)


241. Eva Marie Ham 114 was born about 1736 in <Baden-Baden, Germany>, was christened on 17 May 1771 in Schenectady Reformed Church, Schenectady, New York, (United States), died after 1807 in Upper Canada (Ontario), (Canada),162 and was buried in Papst Family Farm, Lunenburg Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada. Other names for Eva were Eva Maria Hamm, Eva Marie Hamm, Eva Marie Hamm, and Eve Mary Hamm.

Birth Notes: Lorna Wallace, daughter of Edith Poapst, believed Eva Maria Hamm was born in Baden-Baden. Other sources have Ontario, Canada.

Research Notes: Ambiguous information from handwritten note by Lorna (Wallace) to Danielle Fowler:
"My great grandmother on my mother's side... came to Canada from Baden-Baden, Germany*." [Footnote: "Ask [Lorna's brother] Stan if I'm right about this."]
----------
There are thus far no definitive answers about Eva's parentage or where and when she and Johan were married.

From George Cloakey 23 Dec 2009:

..."[Y]ou will see from the data that there are a lot of different opinions for some things--like where Adam and Mary were married. Since Mary was not on the Two Brother's ships list, it is hard to prove that they were married prior to arriving in Philadelphia [abt 28 September 1753].

There was a Friederich Hamm on the Two Brothers, and it has been assumed by many that he was Mary's father. However, Amidon (the Papst research guru) points toward Mary being born in New York Colony to Casper Ham. Casper and his wife Ann Leych had a daughter Maria born 3 Aug 1732. But neither side appears to have proof. If it was Casper's daughter, then the passed down stories of how Adam and Mary met would have no basis in fact. But then which of the many stories does one "hang their hat on?"
Here is what I have in my file on Friederich:

Believed to be the father of Eva Maria as he was on the same ship as Adam Papst--but far from proven.

The following is a possibility
Baptism Records of the Gallatin Reformed Church: Gallatinville Gallatin Reformed Church 1748-1899
Baptism Date: 12 Nov 1786
Father: Friedrich Stickel
Mother: Elizabeth Hamel
Item #: 934
Child: Friedrich
Sponsor: Friedrich Ham; Maritje Schmit
Birth Date: 01 Nov 1786

It is also very possible that Maritje Schmit was the wife of Friederich and the mother of Eva Maria. Johan Adam Schmit was also on the same ship and he could well be Maritje's father. It is also possible that this is a different Friederich."

Eva married Johan Adam Papst (U.E.L.) 20 203 204 in 1753 in <Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, (United States)>. Johan was born about 1732 in Bonn, Westphalia, Germany,159 was christened on 17 May 1771 in Schenectady Reformed Church, Schenectady, New York, (United States), died between 1803 and 1807 in <Osnabruck Centre>, Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada, and was buried in Papst Family Farm, Lunenburg Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada. Other names for Johan were Adam Paaps, Adam Pabst, Johan Adam Pabst, John Adam Papst, Johan Adam Poapst, and John Poapst.

Research Notes: Dutch

Probably the same person as Peter Wearly, p.401 of Lunenburgh, or the Old Eastern District by J.F. Pringle, 1890. If so, he was in the R.R.N.Y. [King's Royal Regiment of New York (Sir John Johnson's corps.)] who settled in the eastern part of Upper Canada, having fought on the side of the Crown.

May not be the same person as Peter Wardle. It is fairly certain that he was the father of Mary Werley/Wardle, wife of Daniel Frederick Papst (Frederick Papst).

Noted events in his life were:

• Residence: 1754, Stone Arabia, Albany (Montgomery), New York, (United States).

• Served: in the King's Royal Regiment of New York (K.R.R.N.Y.). 255

• Census: 1790.

• Settled: 1805, Lunenburg, Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Eastern District (Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry), Ontario, Canada.

• Occupation: Farmer, 1879.

• Probably owned: 50 acres in Lot A of 5th concession, 1879, Osnabruck, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada.

• Probably owned: 195 acres of Lot 2 in 5th Concession, 1879, Osnabruck Twp, Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry, Ontario, Canada.

"John Wood, born c1764, my great great grandfather, is said to be buried in Spring Hill Cemetery. He was the 4th son of Jonas Wood b 1737 and his wife , Sarah Osborne b; 1735. Jonas lived at Kakkiat N.Y. but moved to the east branch of the Delaware, N.Y. where they established a farm and 8 children were born: Jonas 1760, Benjamin 1761: William 1762: John 1764: Roger 1766: Nathaniel 1770: Sarah 1772. Jonas came to Canada in 1780 because of the part he played in the American Revolution. In his Claim for losses dated at Montreal, 28 Feb 1788, Jonas says he always took an active part in favour of Great Britain and was taken prisoner by the Rebels in 1778 for assisting British Scouts. He was tried for his life at Esopus for murder. He broke gaol and escaped to Canada after being four weeks in distress in the woods. He never served in any corps. He had 4 sons in the army and resides in New Johnstown. He had 50 acres of improved land on the Delaware. He had built himself a house and a barn and stable, all burnt and destroyed by the rebels. He drove his cattle to Col. Butler. He lost 9 horses, 30 sheep, 2 calves, 12 hogs and furniture and farming utensils and a loom and crops in the barn. Jonas Jr. and Ben were in the Butler's Rangers; William, John, and Roger were listed in the Kings Royal Regiment of New York. The 2 youngest- Nathan and Steve were naturally too young to fight. The mother Sarah after a hazardous journey reunited with her husband and sons on the Isle of Jeus in the St. Lawarence."

This was written by Jessie E. Robertson, a Wood relative who lived in Vernon, Ontario. Unknown date.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=cornwalls&id=I49 :

"After first settling in Warwick, Orange Co., New York, Jonas and Sarah found fifty acres of property about 40 miles northwest of Warwick in a newly opened section of New York, known as the Great Hardenburgh Patent. They were able to procure this at a nominal rent of five pounds a year. Leaving Jonas' parents and his brother in Warwick in 1775, the family moved to their new home. The property was located on the south bank of the East Branch of the Delaware River (Ulster County) about half way between the present villages of Margaretville and Downsville. Twenty-six other families settled near them, forming the village of Pepacton. During the Revolutionary War, Jonas and his sons were loyal to the Crown of England. They were Tory's and Jonas sacrificed his cattle, driving them through the forest to Colonel John Butler* to help feed the British troops. Jonas stayed home and kept on farming.

"In 1777 the Patriot settlers, because of the burning and plundering of their Patriot settlements on the Hudson by the Tory Volunteers, attached the Pepacton settlement and destroyed everything but a few known Patriots. Jonas Wood's buildings were burned and his livestock and crops stolen. He and his family escape into the forest. The next time Brant went down the trail, Jonas Wood went with him.

"In 1778 he was seized for assisting the British scouts and tried at Esopus (Kingston) for murder and was confined at Sussex, Goshen and Esopus for 2 years and 4 months. In July 1780, the night before he was to be executed, he escaped to Niagara and reached Canada where he settled at New Johnstown with his wife and family. (New Johnstown was settled in 1784 and renamed Cornwall in 1787.)

"Because of the part he played in the American Revolution, Jonas filed a claim for losses in Montreal, dated February 28, 1788. He said he always took an active part in favor of Great Briton and was taken prisoner by the rebels in 1788 for assisting British scouts. He was tried for his life at Esapus (Kingston) for murder. He broke jail and escaped to Canada after being four weeks in distress in the woods. He never served in any corps but four of his sons served in the army and resided in New Johnstown. Jonas claimed he had fifty acres of improved land on the Delaware with a house, barn and stable, which were all burnt and destroyed by the Rebels. He lost nine horses, 30 sheep, two calves, twelve hogs, furniture, farming utensils and a loom and crops in the barn. His sons, Jonas Jr. and Benjamin were in Butler's Rangers and William, John and Roger were listed as being in the King's Royal Regiment of New York. The two youngest, Nathan and Steve were to young to fight. After a hazardous journey, Sarah was reunited with her husband and sons on the Isle of Jesus in the St. Lawrence."

From Biographical Sketches of Loyalists of the American Revolution by Gregory Paulmer, 1984 (as quoted in the above source):
"Wood, Jonas of N.Y. was a native of America. He lived on the Delaware River in Ulster County, where he leased 100 acres, fifty cleared. He was seized in 1778 for assisting British Scouts and tried at Esopus [Kingston] for murder, but escaped and reached Canada, where he settled at Johnstown. Wood had eight children in 1788. Four of his sons had served in the British Army--three in the Royal Regiment of New York and one in Butler's Rangers. Wood estimated his loss at 150# sterling and received 106# sterling."

Wood Monument

The Wood Monument is of great historical interest. It is situated at the south side of the cemetery, overlooking Lake St. Lawrence and visible from all areas. It was originally located in St. David's Anglican Church Cemetery, Wales, a small hamlet just south of the present site. The memorial is unique in design. It is made from metal manufactured at an iron foundry owned by Col. John R. Wood whose memory it commemorates. The foundry was located on the Wood Farm, a short distance west of the Village of Lunenburg, about two and a half miles north of the cemetery. The Wood Monument is surrounded in the cemetery by a number of monuments bearing the Wood name, all descendants of Jonas Wood, U.E.L. Tribute is paid to the memory of Col. John R. Wood in the Historical Atlas of Ontario-Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry-1879. The descendants of Jonas Wood, (grandfather of John R. Wood) and his wife Sarah Osborne are many. The eight children of Jonas and Sarah all married and had large families and for the last two hundred years these have multiplied and spread out over Eastern Ontario and many other parts of Canada and the United States.

Gord Adams - Nov 6, 2011
Because Paul Drew is my GGGGGGrandfather I did a lot of of looking over 20 years for the genealogy of Paul Drew. His Will gives a lot of insight as to who is who. More importantly it puts to rest a lot of misinformation that has been floating around on the net.

See Will transcription by Michelle Lockhart Jones 2007.

Here is some more correspondence...
John Drew wrote on 17 May 2004

This is what I have on Paul Drew:
He was born in 1729, when he came to America he went to the Mohawk River Valley to farm. He was a loyal British subject. It is unknown when he moved to Willington Vermont, it is beleived that it was some tiime before 1786. He was imprisoned at least 6 times by the American Goverment. In March 1786 Paul was living in New Johnstown in the District of Montreal, in the Province of Qucbec, Canada,. (which is now known as Cornwell, Ontriao, Canada,.) I have found that Paul Drew is listed in Upper Canada Militia Rolls of Colonel James Gary's Company on February, 1789. It listed :
Paul Drew, 60 years of age, marital status not indicated, no concession or not shown, no years of service shown, country of orgin not shown, and no remarks nor regiment notes. So if he was of rank of Captain Colonel Gray would have stated it. With this same paper all the enlisted and officers are list even if retired.

If anyone has any info that is different or has proof of a rank I do want to see it, other wise it will stand that he was a common settler.!!!!


Paul Drew (First) was born abt 1735 and died in 1814 according to the Will and probate. He was married to Margaret Unknown abt 1757

Cpl John Bradshaw's daughter Nancy Posted by: Linda McDonald
Date: July 06, 2001 at 09:48:50 In Reply to: Cpl John Bradshaw UEL Born abt 1761 by Gord Adams

Gord,
Can't help you much with John Bradshaw, but his daughter Nancy was one of my husband's ancestors. She was said to be from "Asnabruck." Her first husband David McWilliams died and she married again. McWilliams "had been downed while on a horse back journey to look after his UEL land." She married David Brown of Mouontain township of Dundas Co., Ontario, Canada. David's first wife, Margaret Guernsey, died there in 1806. David Brown was also a UEL loyalist and was from Vermont. From thier second marriage, Nancy & David Brown had 9 children.
The only source I have besides family tradition, is what I found in "Loyalist Lineages of Canada," Vol II, Part 1, p. 116, where there is a list of John Bradshaw's seven childen, which included Nancy and her husband David McWilliams. It said John was in the King's Royal Regiment of New York.
Thanks.

Linda

From RootsWeb.com, William Akin, 7/25/2006 :

Charles Wells (1745-1815)

Charles Wells, born 06 Apr 1745 son of Benjamin Wells and Temperance Butler, married 27 Dec 1764 Michal Owings who died on 17 May 1783, two months after the birth of her 10th child. He then married 24 Jul 1784 Elizabeth Prather, daughter of Charles Prather and Ruth Tannehill. They had 12 children making a total of 22 for Charles. The 20th was named "Twenty Wells" b: 23 Nov 1798 and was described in her father's will. (also mentioned below) as "a helpless child". His 3rd child, Temperance Wells b: 01 Sep 1769 m: 1) Nathaniel Wells (b: 01 Apr 1762) and thus formed one of the Big Wells-Little Wells family bonds. Nathaniel Wells was a son of Alexander Wells and Leah Owings.

Sistersville [West Virginia]
"Charles Wells also had his ties with a town called Sistersville. The exact year that Charles Wells, the first settler of prominence, arrived in the area which is now called Sistersville, is not known. In 1800, he had surveyed a tract of 200 acres on the Ohio River. Charles Wells was a man of prominence, who was involved with the Virginia State Legislature between 1789 and 1810. Sometime around 1802, Wells left Wellsburg in a flatboat and floated down the Ohio River to settle one mile below where Sistersville now exists. In his cargo was the machinery for a horse mill which he established. He built a log cabin just south of where the Sistersville Golf Course is today.

"On May 9, 1813, he acquired four hundred acres of land on which Sistersville and close residential area is located. Soon after the first court of Tyler county was held in his home, Charles Wells died in 1815. His grave has this inscription: "Charles Wells, born April 6, 1745; died April 6, 1815: aged 70 yrs. and ten days; a native of Baltimore County Maryland; immigrated to Ohio County, Virginia, 1776. He was a practical farmer and the father of twenty-two children, two wives, ten by the first and twelve by the second."

"His will provided for each living member of his family. In 1815, the Wells sisters, (Sarah and Delilah Wells Grier) laid out the town on the land which they had inherited. Sistersville hence got its name from the seventeenth and eighteenth children of Charles Wells. The town was incorporated Feb. 2, 1839, under the name Sistersville and in 1845, the municipal government was established.

"Charles died April 16,1815 in Baltimore County, MD."

"This list of taxables is recorded in Reverend Ethan Allen's book entitled Historical Sketches of St. Paul's Parish in Baltimore County, Maryland which he compiled in 1855. A copy is available in the Maryland Historical Society Library in Baltimore. Each person named therein is followed by a number which represents the number of taxables in his house. This list, in 1774, ony gives the household head by name. The list also contains names of persons in Rev.

General Notes: Two sons, three daughters.

Donald Wallace (1816-?) letter to Ed H. Wallace dated 4 Jun 1896 has b. 1701; d. 1756. "Tradition says the first Wallace came to Ross[-s]hire as a manager to George McKinrie [Mackenzie (1630-1714), Earl of Cromerty [Cromarty], and that I am the ninth generation, him my great-great-grandfather, was Alex. Wallace. He was born about 1660; he died about 1740. He was twice married, and had 21 children. He was a very brave man. Lachlin [Lachlan?], my great-grandfather, was his son. It was from him that most of the Wallaces in Ross-shire sprung. He [Lachlin] was born 1701, died 1756. He had two sons, three daughters. His youngest son, John, was my grandfather. He [John?] left large offspring. Since the year 1838 he [John?] had 5 sons and 4 daughters. He [John?] died in 1849.

Research Notes: Dutch.

From http://www.edenstree.com/:

In speculative view, the roots of our branch of the Wereley family extend back to the Palatine Migrations from Germany. Some Palatine immigrants came directly from the Palatinate through Rotterdam; others journeyed farther through Holland and England, then on to the Colonies. They moved to avoid heavy taxation and harsh conditions in their homeland, and by 1750, an estimated 70-80,000 Germans had emigrated. Most sought land grants promised by William Penn and entered the Colonies through the port of Philadelphia. However, land grants were limited in number, and soon ran out, causing many immigrants to move on to the upstate NY area for farmland. Others entered through the ports of New England and New Amsterdam, traveling to the upper Hudson River Valley area to work in the Naval Stores Project, producing pitch for the Royal Naval Fleet, but they were less well documented. Only Philadelphia kept good records of immigrants and ships' passenger lists; other ports kept sparse records if any at all. It was not until 1820 that ports were required to keep records, making non-Philadelphia immigration before that time difficult to track. With the coming of the Revolution, many Palatines who fought against the rebels split off and traveled to Canada, principally to Stormont and surrounding counties in then Canada West, now called Ontario, and pledged loyalty to the Crown. This entitled many to UE land patents from the Crown in return for their support. The history of the Palatine migration is well documented, and visiting the links at the left will provide an evening's worth of good reading for the history buffs among us. Our purpose here is not necessarily to study the movements of the people geographically - but to examine their movements genetically.
Several principal male lines of the Wereley family and their probable progenitor are of particular interest: Hans Jerg Wehrli and his wife Barbara are recorded in 1754 in the Albany NY area with new-born daughter Eva Gertraut and son Pieter, born in 1753 according to KRRNY records. Pieter married Maria Schmitt (Smith) about 1773. Their son Peter begat the The Peter (Psalter) Werley line. Son George Werley Sr. sired George G. Werely Jr. b. 1808, and likely Jacob b. 1811 and Martin Wereley, b. 1815, each of whom founded long lines. Pieter and Maria also apparently begat John Wereley, b. 1778, who established the Schoharie line which stayed in the Schoharie region when the others emigrated to Canada. The John "Hansie" Werely, b. Abt. 1800 line through a branch yet to be discovered.. "Hansie" appears to have moved to Canada and wed Barbara Ann Werley - Peter "Psalter" Werley's daughter. The "Hansie" line later merged with the Martin Wereley line with the union of Hansie's son, Harvey and Martin's daughter, Henrietta Wereley. The various spellings are not typo's - the name began as Wehrli but mutated and was listed in official and anecdotal records variously as Werley, Wereley, Werely, Werlee, Werlie, Wearly, Warely, Warly, and on, often within the same family - same generation. To further stir the witch's brew, genealogists over the ages have innocently and understandably homogenized the name into one or two spellings. John (Schoharie) Wereley's will spells the name multiple ways in the same document! His own daughter likewise waffles between spellings.

Noted events in his life were:

• Residence: 1754, Stone Arabia, Albany (Montgomery), New York, (United States).

Hans married Barbara.

Children from this marriage were:

242       i.  Peter Wereley (U.E.L.) (born in 1753 - died after 1789)

         ii.  Eva Gertraut Wehrli (born on 15 Mar 1754 in <Stone Arabia>, Albany (Montgomery), New York, (United States))

Death Notes: Donald Wallace gives his death year as "about 1740." Another source has 1735.

General Notes: Twice married, 21 children.

Donald Wallace (1816-?) letter to Ed H. Wallace dated 4 Jun 1896 has b. about 1660; d. about 1740. From that letter:

"Tradition says the first Wallace came to Ross[-s]hire as a manager to George McKinrie [Mackenzie (1630-1714), Earl of Cromerty [Cromarty], and that I am the ninth generation, him my great-great-grandfather, was Alex. Wallace. He was born about 1660; he died about 1740. He was twice married, and had 21 children. He was a very brave man. Lachlin, my great-grandfather, was his son. It was from him that most of the Wallaces in Ross-shire sprung. He [Lachlin] was born 1701, died 1756. He had two sons, three daughters. His youngest son, John, was my grandfather. He [John?] left large offspring. Since the year 1838 he [John?] had 5 sons and 4 daughters. He [John?] died in 1849. His [Alexander's] oldest son, Lachlin, was my great-grandfather; his son John was my grandfather; one of his sons, George, was my father."

Research Notes: Even though other sources give different approximate birthdates, I'm using the "around 1660" from the letter by Donald Wallace to Ed Wallace. Since the death date was also approximate in the letter, I'm using 1735 from the RootsWeb sources.

From Maryland Historical Magazine, vol. XVI, Baltimore, 1921, p. 238:

"Between various fords on the Main Falls of Patapsco River and fords on the lower reaches of Gwinn's Falls there existed in the eighteenth century three main roads, which, because their origin is mysterious and not explained by any known records, may possibly have been survivors of earlier military roads or even of Indian paths.

"In November 1733, the court appointed Charles Wells overseer of the road 'from the lower wadeing place of the main falls of Potapsco to the second wadeing place of Gwinns Falls' and of the road 'from the lower fording place of Gwinns Falls to Moales Point.' The lowest ford on the Main Falls of Patapsco River was situated in the immediate neighborhood of Relay or Avalon, near the site of the old Hockley Forge."

[The site of the Hockley Forge is on Levering Avenue in Halethorpe.]

Noted events in his life were:

• Appointed: overseer of certain roads along the Patapsco River, Nov 1733, Baltimore, Maryland, United States.

Charles married Sarah Wright 310 311 on 3 Jun 1726 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States).366 Sarah was born about 1686 in Baltimore, Maryland, United States, was christened in 1706 in St. Anne's, Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States), and died about 1792 about age 106. Other names for Sarah were Sarah Arnold and Sarah Wright Arnold.

Marriage Notes: Source: http://homepages.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~digging/index.html has m. 3 Jun 1726. This date does not make sense if Sarah Arnold was the mother of Benjamin and Charles Wells, as listed in the same source, unless they were born out of wedlock. When did Sarah's first husband, John Arnold, die?

Wells-L Archives (Orin R. Wells, 12 Nov 1998) has marriage year of 1722.

Children from this marriage were:

1676. Captain Richard Owings "the Settler",312 313 314 son of Owen Humphrey of Llwyn du 369 370 and Margaret Vaughan,20 371 was born on 7 Mar 1659 in <Llwyn du>, Llanllugan, Montgomeryshire, Wales and died on 14 Nov 1716 in Baltimore Co., Maryland, (United States) at age 57. Other names for Richard were Captain Richard Owen and Richard Owens.

Birth Notes: Most sources give Richard's birth date as 1660, but it may have been 7 Mar 1658/59 and in Wales.

Death Notes: Died intestate.

Research Notes: This researcher's note from 5 July 2014:

I find it likely that Richard Owings had two wives, both named Rachel. If I am right, it might be thus:
1) Racheal Roberts, m. abt 1682 in England or Wales. She was daughter of Robert Pugh (aka Pugh Roberts/Robert Pugh/Robert ap Hugh)
2) Rachel Beale/Beall, m. 4 Apr 1698 in Dorchester, Massachusetts.

This scenario would make Racheal Roberts the mother of the first set of children (Rachel Owings, Catherine Owings and possibly Richard Owings (Jr.), depending upon the latter's birthdate). Rachel Beale would be the mother of all the others.

As far as I can determine, other researchers are not in agreement about which Rachel was Richard Owings' wife. Most assume that there was only one woman named Rachel. I am taking a more creative approach, as yet not disproven, and am proposing that there were two women who happened to have the same first name. It makes a better story. If it was so, all that is in question is the timing of marriages & births.

Source http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:a41513&id=I0192 lists two wives:
1) Rachel Roberts m. 1682
2) Rachel Beale b. 1662, England, m. 1690 in Maryland

Several sources mention that Richard Owen was named after Richard Davies of Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, who was a famous Quaker minister. Richard Davies visited Owen Humphrey (Richard's father), along with Owen's brothers Samuel and John, in Llwyngril in 1662 and attests to their faithfulness and that of others in the Quaker community there.

Excerpt from http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/owings.html - M.J.P. Grundy, 26 Jul 2008:

"Our Richard Owen1 identified himself as a carpenter, first of Anne Arundel County, then of Baltimore County. One source says he was born in Virginia and died before 11 February 1726/7. He was married to Rachel (__) by 1701/2.[1]

"As with most of our colonial Maryland ancestors, we find traces of them in legal records of various kinds. For example, Richard had borrowed considerable money from Christopher RANDALL , that was listed in the latter's estate inventory 20 Mar. 1684/5. I don't know if the loans were in order to purchase real estate, or for some other reason. Richard made several real estate transactions. On 12 September 1685 he bought the tract "Range" from Thomas LIGHTFOOT and his wife Rebecca. It was in Anne Arundel County about a mile from the head of the Anne Arundel River, by the line of Richard WARFIELD's land, by a tract called the "Marsh". The next fall Richard sold 384 acres to Jabez PIERPONT, a planter of Baltimore County, for 4,500 pounds of tobacco. Richard's wife released her dower right in it. On 10 October 1694 Richard had surveyed for him 450 acres on the west side of the Patapasco, north side of Col. TAYLOR's land. On 13 March (or August) 1704 Richard conveyed 225 acres out of the total 450 acre "Owen's Adventure" to Col. Edward DORSEY for £40. The tract had originally been patented 10 November 1695. On 1 June 1708 Richard sold another 100 acres from "Owings Adventure" [notice the spelling variations as officially recorded] to Richard ACTON, planter. This tract had been granted to Richard by Lord Baltimore 3 April 1700. Richard's wife, Rachel, gave her consent. On 1 June 1708 Richard owens of Baltimore County, carpenter, conveyed 100 acres, which was part of a larger tract, with Rachel's consent, to Richard ACTON, planter. Another land grant was made to Capt. Richard Owings on 10 September 1725 consisting of 480 acres in Baltimore County named "Owens Outland Plains".[2]


On 16 October 1697 the Assembly passed an "Act appointing Rangers for the defence of this Province". It decreed that fifteen men be raised "to strengthen the Garrison and frontiers at Potomak". They were to be raised proportionately from Anne Arundel, Calvert, St. Mary's, and Charles Counties. The colonels were to "impress them, but if Volunteers can be afterwards procured" the draftees could be released. Richard Owen of Anne Arundel County was made Captain over the new recruits, with Giles HILL of St. Mary's County, the Lieutenant. Two weeks later Richard signed a receipt for arms and equipment received from the Governor: 1 brass "lanthorne", 2 carbines and belts, 2 bayonettes and belts, 2 pair of pistols, 1 brass compass, 1 "prospective" glass, 30 flints, 2 Bibles, 1 Whole Duty of Man, 5 "Catuch boxes" and belts, and $1.00.[3]


"That was not the extent of Richard's military career. He also appeared on a list of soldiers under the command of Col. Ninian BEALE from 6 February 1699 to 6 May 1700. For this he was paid at 3/4d per day, for a total of £15.03.04.[4]


"The only other fact about Richard of which we can be sure, is that he and Rachel were the parents of Samuel, because Samuel had this information entered in the St. Thomas parish register, Garrison Forest, Baltimore County. St. Paul's was the first parish in Baltimore County, and there are four Owings marriages in the St. Paul's Parish register, that let us infer they are all siblings: Robert, Samuel, Joshua, and Ruth. Later, St. Thomas was set off from St. Paul. The web site of "First Families of Anne Arundel County" lists additional children. Some may be conflated from other families.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:2492193&id=I2555:

Captain Richard Owings, The Settler

Richard Owings, was born Richard Owen, or perhaps Richard ab Owain, at about the time of the restoration of the Stewarts. The place of his birth was probably in the parish of Llanllugan, in the central part of County Montgomery, North Wales. For it is here we find that Cwn Owain or Valley of Owen whose name he was to give to one of his plantations. It lies in the southwestern portion of the parish among the upper waters of the southern branch of the Rhiw.

Of Richard Owings' parents we no nothing, but we may infer that they were yeomen or small gentlefolk, a class then numerous in Wales, and he himself was bred to the trade of carpenter. The origins of his wife, Rachel, are likewise uncertain, but one may suppose that they were married about 1682, for their eldest surviving child, a daughter, was born in the following year. In 1684 they removed to Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and there settled in Middle Neck Hundred, between the Severn and the South Rivers. They may have had relatives in this vicinity, or they may have been attracted to it by the familiar name of its principal river.

Richard Owings probably began in his new home by practicing his trade, but he seems later to have turned more and more to planting. On 12 September 1685, he purchased of Thomas Lightfoot "The Range," 384 acres, which on 9 November 1686 he sold to Jabez Pierpont. On 15 February 1688/9 he surveyed a second tract, near or contiguous to the former, called "Owings' Range" and embracing 162 acres, which he sold on 5 August 1690 to Ambrose Nelson. Both plantations were in Middle Neck Hundred a little to the west of the present Crownsville. Very probably he continued to occupy one or the other until his removal to Baltimore County in 1701-2. Meantime he had surveyed a third tract of land, 10 May 1688, called "Locust Thicket," 384 acres, which lay up south of the Patapsco, on Elk Ridge, in Broad Neck Hundred of Anne Arundel County, near what is now Shipley Station. This he sold, prior to April 1698, to Col. William Holland.

From 18 October 1697 until their disbandment in May 1701 Richard Owings served with the rank of Captain as commander of the mounted rangers enforced at the Little Falls of the Potomac. This was in New Scotland Hundred of Prince George's County, but it is now within the limits of Georgetown, District of Columbia. He and his men were to range the woods in this frontier area, looking out for possibly hostile "foreign Indians." They were to keep liaison with another Maryland garrison, north of the Patapsco, and with a Virginia garrison across the Potomac.

On his retirement Captain Owings settled, prior to Midsummer, 1702, in the Upper Part, North Patapsco Hundred, Baltimore County, where he had previously surveyed, on 10 October 1694, two neighboring plantations. These were "Long Acre", 225 acres, on the north bank of the Patapsco, halfway between Elk Ridge Landing and the present Ellicott City, and "Owings' Adventure," 450 acres, directly back in the woods and at or near the southeast corner of what is now Catonsville. On the former tract he built a small frame dwelling with brick chimneys at either end, a separate kitchen house, several tobacco barns, and other structures. Of the latter tract, he sold the northwest half to Col. Edward Dorsey, 13 August 1704.

After May 1727 this area was a part of Anne Arundel County. Captain Owings died, shortly before 14 November 1716, seized of all "Long Acre," 125 acres of "Owings' Adventure," and all of "The Valley of Owen." His widow occupied the dwelling plantation until her own death a little before 27 May 1729.

Richard Owings, Sr. served as Captain of the Rangers on the Potomac River from October 18, 1697 to May 16, 1701 when the Rangers were disbanded. He was known the rest of his life as Captain Richard Owings.

Marsha Barnes wrote in GenForum on 25 Oct 2006:
"There is some confusion on who Captain Richard was married to. Richard was married to Rachel ROBERTS in Llwyn-Dedwydd, Wales. Abt 1665. She died in Baltimore, Co. MD Bef. 27 May, 1729. They had a daughter named Rachel born 1683 she was the first of 10 children they had. Captain Richard Owings father was Owen Humprey Owings of Llwyngwril, Merioneth, Wales born 1629, and his mother was Margaret Vaughn of Llangelynin, Montgomeryshire Wales. Born 1630 I could go on if you want more info."

Very likely the first wife of Richard Owings, if Richard remarried after this Rachel died. If so, his second wife may have been Rachel Beale. It is important to know Rachel Roberts' death date, as well as the birthdates of her (?) children.

"The original burying ground of the Cockey family is located on land owned in 1728 by John Cockey, son of William, the immigrant, and now belonging [in 1908] to the Browns of Brooklynwood. It is in the third district, lying and bounding on the road running up the north side of Green Spring valley, from the Falls road at Cockey's old tavern. The cemetery is on the top of a slight hill in a meadow-like field about three hundred yards from the Falls road and about the same distance from the farm buildings of George Brown.
"John Cockey, one of the Justices of Baltimore county, and also one of the Commissioners appointed in 1732, to lay off ten acres east of the falls as an addition to Baltimore city, is buried here. His tomb is inscribed:

Capt. Cockey, Sr., was the son of William Cockey, the Immigrant.

John married Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker (c.1685 - 5 Aug 1780) on 2 Apr 1726. She was the daughter of William Slade, Jr.

The earliest segment of "Oakdene" at 12025 Greenspring Valley Road in Brooklandville, Baltimore County, Maryland, was built at the beginning of the 18th century by Capt. John Cockey.

John and Elizabeth were the original owners of the estate now known as Brooklandwood in the Green Spring Valley, which later was acquired by Charles Carroll, the Signer. The Brooklandwood Mansion built by Charles Carroll for his daughter, Mary (Carroll) Caton, in 1798 overlooks the Green Spring Valley, and is now part of St. Paul's School for Boys.

Capt. John Cockey wrote his will on 22 May 1740 in Baltimore County, Maryland.

Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker [2nd] married Rev. Charles Baker on 9 Jan 1748. He was the Rector of St. John's Parish, Baltimore County, Maryland.

Capt. John Cockey and Elizabeth (Slade) Cockey Baker, were originally buried in a Cockey family cemetery in the Green Spring Valley at the top of a slight hill about 300 yards from Falls Road.

Their gravemarkers, and two others, were moved to St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, Owings Mills, and are resting against a wall in Lot 123 of the Church Yard.

"In Memory of John Cockey, son of William the immigrant, aged 66 years. Died Aug. 15th 1746."

"Elizabeth Baker, wife of Rev. Charles Baker, and formerly wife of John Cockey, aged 95, died Aug. 5th, 1780."

"W. Cockey, son of John and Elizabeth, born 1718, died ____ 1756."

"Wm. Cockey, aged 9 years, 1782.

In writing of this old burial ground in 1855, Dr. John Paul Cockey states, among other things, that the brick wall which his grandfather, Capt. John Cockey, placed around it has been almost entirely removed by repeated robbery of its materials, notwithstanding the reservation of the burial ground, with its privileges, when Capt. John Cockey sold the adjacent lands. The robbery has been continued until there is no trace that there ever was a brick in the vicinity, and some of the stone foundation has also been taken away. The gravestones, too, have been taken up and thrown under an ash tree growing upon the lot and some of them are broken; two only remained standing in 1898. It is not probable that the number of graves here was ever large.

Richard Owens was originally buried in this Cockey family cemetery, but is currently buried in Lot 181 of the Church Yard of St. Thomas' Episcopal Church.

"Richard Owens aged 17 months and 20 days, Oct 12, 1787."

"West River was the abode of Richard Talbott in 1649; he was a Quaker. His wife was Elizabeth, oldest daughter of Major Richard Ewen, who that same year brought his wife, Sophia, five children and three servants at his own charges, for which he demanded and received, in 1650, a patent for 1,000 acres. The issue of Richard and Elizabeth were Richard, Edward, John and Elizabeth, wife of Benjamin Lawrence. 'Poplar Knawle' was left by his will of 1663 to Richard; 'Talbotts Ridge' to his sons, Edward and John, jointly; to Elizabeth his personalty. Richard Galloway was a witness."

Birth Notes: I am not sure what source has <Accomack, Virginia> as Elizabeth Ewen's birthplace. Possibly FamilySearch or RootsWeb. The birthplace needs research & verification.

Another source has birthplace as Brownton (West River), Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States), but this is unlikely as her parents would have still been in Virginia at the time.

May have been born in England (see http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mrmarsha&id=I34631)

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/ewen/messages/180.html :
I have received information on Elizabeth Ewen Talbott and her father Major Richard Ewen through the Genealogical society of Rockingham & Stokes County, North Carolina where my line through William Richardson & Elizabeth settled generations later. William Richardson was a prominent Quaker and had a home in West River Maryland with Elizabeth. The article was written by Wm L. (Butch Johnson)

Elizabeth Ewen Talbott was the widow of Richard Talbott and the daughter of Major Richard Ewen. No marriage date has been found for Elizabeth and her first husband, but proof can be found that " Major Richard Ewen assigneth the right of 50 acres to his son-in-law Richard Talbott under the date of August 2, 1659. He bequeaths to his wife, whose name is not given, his eldest son Richard, next son Edward, youngest son John, and his daughter Elizabeth.

The Ewen family settled in Maryland in 1649 and it appears that Elizabeth Ewen was possibly married at that time, which would indicate that Richard Talbott was her second husband. In 1650 May 17th, Richard Ewen demandeth One Thousand Acres of land for transporting himself and nine persons into this province the last year Vizt. Sophia his wife Eliza Davy, Richard Ewen Jr., John Ewen, Suzanna Ewen, Ann Ewen, William Davies, John King and James Brown at his own Charges. Tester James Cox.

-------
From Side-Lights on Maryland History, Vol. 2, p. 426:
"Among the earliest settlers of importance came the Richardsons, of England, and received thousands of acres of land for bringing colonists into the Province. The Land Warrants at Annapolis bear record that between the years 1636 and 1695, patents for many thousand acres of land were issued from that office to the various Richardsons who arrived between those years.

:The fact that they not only came independently, but also paid the transporation of hundreds of less fortunate settlers, proved them to have been men of wealth and enterprise. They have left evidence of their coats-of-arms, establishing their gentle origin and ancient lineage. They at once held offices of importance, both civil and military..."


Ibid, p. 427:
"William Richardson married Elizabeth Ewen, the daughter of Major Richard Ewen, one of the commissioners to govern Maryland under Oliver Cromwell. She was the widow of Richard Talbot, of Anne Arundel County. Major Richard Ewen, father-in-law of William Richardson, was one of the Council of War after the battle of the Severn, which condemned Governor Stone and others to die."


Ibid., pp. 428-429:
"William Richardson was a prominent Quaker, and Proud, in his History of Pennsylvania, tells of a visit to him by William Penn, The Lord and Lady Baltimore, who, with their retinue, visited William Richardson in his home at West River, from whence they went across the Bay to attend a Yearly Meeting at Tred Haven, Talbot County. Proud took his facts from the Journal of John Richardson, printed at London in 1700.

"The lands of William Richardson, of Anne Arundel County, amounted to over 4000 acres, and his household goods, his silver and seals, engraved with the family crest, which have descended in the family, all attest the elegance in which he lived.

"His will, dated December 21, 1691, was proved May 28, 1698 (Annapolis Wills, No. 7, page 388). In this he bequeaths 'to sons Daniel and Joseph' equally, six hundred acres called 'Hickory Hills' and 'Franklin's Enlargement.' To wife Elizabeth, 'Watkin's Hope,' 'to son William at twenty-one years of age, part of 'Watkin's Hope' adjoining plantation of William Cole,' which testator gave him and his heirs. To 'daughter Sophia, 'Diligent Search,' at sixteen," young son Joseph, grandson William Richardson, Margaret wife of William Richardson, Jr., all received personalty, as did also 'John and Sarah Talbot and their daughter Elizabeth and the three children of Edward Talbot' (the children of his wife by her marriage to Richard Talbot). The executors were, 'wife Elizabeth, and son William'; overseers, 'Richard Jones, Richard Harrison, John Talbot, William Coleson."

From Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 174-175:

A friend of William Penn, he came to Virginia in the "Paul," of London, in 1634. He removed to Maryland in 1666, and became a member of the Lower House of the Assembly from 1676 to 1683. He was frequently the bearer of messages to the Upper House with instructions form Parliament.

During his service, he was upon the Committee of Security and Defense of the Province, and of the Committee upon Laws for the Province. With Henry Ridgely, Edward Darcy, Nicholas Gassaway and others, he was, in 1683, also, upon a committee to erect a building for the Courts and Assembly, and for keeping the records of the Secretary's office in this Province.

On December 19th, 1682, William Penn met Lord Baltimore at West River, and after an interview upon their divisional line, Penn set out, the Lord Baltimore accompanying him several miles, to the house of William Richardson, and from thence two miles further to a religious meeting of his friends, the Quakers, at the house of Thomas Hooper.

William Richardson married Elizabeth Talbot, widow of Richard... She brought to him "Talbott's Ridge" adjoining "His Lordship's Manor," surveyed in 1662.

From http://richardsonfamily.homestead.com/Reedrichardson.html :

Information from Quaker records as published in the book "Quakers in The Founding of Anne Arundel County, Maryland" by J. Reaney Kelley (FHC Bk. No. 975.255 F2k, US/Can) indicates as follows: Page 14 - "While there is no proof that Richard Ewen became a Friend, it is known that in 1657 he refused to take an oath and declared it unlawful to do so. His daughter, Elizabeth, married, first, Richard Talbott, and, second, William Richardson both well-known and ardent Friends." Page 37 - "William Richardson was the first signer of this Testimony. Prior to 1680 he acquired a tract of land in the West River Hundred named 'Watkins Hope.' A part of this land is now known as 'Woodstock, and is located between Owensville and the Old Quaker Burying Ground. An historic roadside marker, indicating the general location of his house, calls attention to a visit by William Penn to Richardson in 1682, after the memorable conference between the former and Charles, Third Lord Baltimore, 'at the house of Col. Thomas Tailler,' where the two had discussed the boundaries of Maryland and Pennsylvania. Colonel Taillor's home was only a few miles away, just below South River. The tract now known as 'Etowah Farm', on State Route 2, includes a part of the Taillor plantation. From Richardson's house Penn traveled a short distance to attend a Meeting at the house of Thomas Hooker, Sr., near West River Landing, and from there he embarked for the Eastern Shore. Quaker Meetings were held at the house of William Richardson, who was a Quaker minister, until his death in 1697." Additional information shows - "Soon after 1663, William Richardson, Sr., married Elizabeth, widow of Richard Talbott of 'Poplar Knowle,' now 'Tulip Hill,' and daughter of Richard Ewen of nearby 'Ewen Upon Ewenton,' today known as 'Cedar Park.' He was fined for not taking an oath on November 10, 1662, but later held an important position in Lord Baltimore's government,' serving as a member of the Lower House of the General Assembly in 1678. In 1683, at a meeting of the General Assembly at John Larkin's house, now 'Larkins Hills,' in the area called The Ridge, Richardson argued in favor of making West River Landing a port of entry for that area, a development not accomplished until the next year. Richardson was appointed as one of the commissioners to survey and manage the building of a courthouse at Londontowne on South River, another instance of a Quaker holding a position in the Maryland government. He died in 1698, and his will, dated December 21, 1691, was probated on April 2, 1698. He left a substantial estate of which his wife, Elizabeth, was given the home plantation 'Watkins Hope,' and he remembered his beloved Quaker Church."

From Baltimore: Its History and Its People, p. 795.:

"Edward Talbott, second son of Richard and Elizabeth (Ewen) Talbott, was born at 'Poplar Knowle', November 6, 1658, died there in January, 1689. He married Elizabeth, who died in 1725, widow of William Coale, and daughter of Philip and Sarah Thomas, who were immigrants from England. Philip Thomas was a noted man of his time, the owner of a large estate, and held a variety of positions under the government of the colony."
-----------------
From The Thomas Book, pp. 27-34:

PHILIP THOMAS, of the mercantile house of Thomas & Devonshire, at Bristol, England, son of Evan Thomas of Swansea, Glamorganshire, Wales, is the earliest ancestor of this family of whom we have legal and documentary proof, although I have little doubt that the descent given in this genealogy is accurately taken from Sir Rhys ap Thomas, K.G., and will be confirmed by further investigations… The coat of arms (ar., a chevron checquy of or and sa., between three ravens, close, of the last) borne by Philip Thomas upon his gold-headed cane and service of silver, served to point out the true affiliation when I came across the arms of Sir Rhys ap Thomas of Carew, in an old copy of Guillim's "Display of Heraldry" (viz., Ar. a chevron sa. between three ravens, close, of the last). ..

Further research satisfied me that the descent was to be taken directly from Sir Rhys through one of his sons by Gwenllian (q.v.), sister of his friend and counsellor, Robert ap Gwylim Harry ap Jevan Gwyn of Mydhifinych, Abbot of Talley. Referring then to the genealogy of Sir Rhys ap Thomas for its earlier history, we begin the present family with this THOMAS AP RHYS, b. after 1478, whose son Philip ap Thomas m. Sybell, dau. of Philip and Joan (Warnecombe) Scudamore, and dying before 1585 left a son and heir, John Philip Thomas, who appears to have inherited from his mother the demesne lands of Grosmount Manor, Monmouthshire, and a grist-mill near by, before 1585, when he held them "in right of Philip Skudamore," and in 1591 was Queen's lessee of mills at Kentchurch in the same shire. He m. Gwenllian, fourth dau. of Walter Herbert, Esq (q.v.), of Skenfrith, Sheriff of Monmouthshire in 1552, and had issue: Evan Thomas, b. 1580, whose name begins the pedigree compiled by the late Philip E. Thomas, Esq., of Baltimore… His wife's name is unknown. Philip, his son, was b. about 1600…

Philip Thomas, the emigrant, before 1650, formed a business partnership with one Devonshire at Bristol, and some time in the year 1651, only seventeen years after Leonard Calvert and Lord Baltimore's first colonists landed at St. Mary's, removed to the province of Maryland. The earliest land patent in his name, dated February 19, 1651-2, conveys to him 500 acres of land called "Beakely" or "Beckley" on the west side of Chesapeake Bay , "in consideration that he hath in the year 1651 transported himself, Sarah, his wife, Philip, Sarah, and Elizabeth his children, into this our province."

He would appear to have come directly from Bristol to Maryland. An examination of the land records of the colony of Virginia, made by the well-known genealogist, R. A. Brock, Esq., of Richmond, fails to show any grant to a Philip Thomas in the seventeenth century, and there would seem to be no reason to suppose that he was in America before coming to Maryland…

Between 1658 and 1661 Philip Thomas had patented to him 100 acres called "Thomas Towne;" in 1665 a patent of 120 acres called "Fuller's Poynt;" in 1668, of 300 acres called "The Planes;" in 1672, of 200 acres called "Phillip's Addicion," and numerous other patents of unnamed tracts. This land lay mostly in Anne Arundel County, near what is now known as West River. "Fuller's Poynt," between the Severn and South Rivers, is now called Thomas Point, and is the site of a light-house. A man of character and resolution, the emigrant soon acquired influence amongst his neighbours, and, affiliating himself with the Puritan party, he became one of its leaders in the conflict with Lord Baltimore, the Proprietary, and his representatives in the province. When Cromwell and the Parliamentary party were supreme in England, their sympathizers in Maryland broke out in open rebellion under Colonel Richard Bennett, and Philip Thomas, holding a military commission as lieutenant, was of their muster in Anne Arundel County, Md. Governor Stone immediately summoned the militia of the province, and with a little army of 250 men, after seizing a magazine of arms collected by the Puritans, set out for Providence on the Severn, the head-quarters of Bennett's partisans. Part of his men were transported in small vessels, and part marched along the Bay shore. As they drew near Providence, Stone sent forward a messenger to the enemy, summoning them to surrender; but the messenger did not return; and on the evening of the same day, March 24, 1654-5, the Governor's little fleet, with all his army now on board, made its appearance in the Severn.

Captain Fuller, the commander at Providence, put some men on board a ship lying in the harbour, who fired on Stone's boats as he landed his forces, but did no damage. On the next morning, which was Sunday, Governor Stone and his force came marching up to the attack, under the black and yellow flag of the colony, while over Fuller's men, 107 in number, drawn up in order of battle, floated the blue cross on a crimson field, the standard of the Commonwealth of England. The battle was short, but sharp; about fifty of the Governor's men were killed or wounded, and Stone himself, with nearly all his force, compelled to surrender, under a promise that their lives should be spared.

The Puritan annalist writes: "After the battle our men were so tired with watching and anxiety (before the attack) that the guards set over the prisoners fell asleep at their posts; yet the Catholics were so disheartened by their defeat, that no one of them attempted to escape." "Hammond against Heamans," a contemporary pamphlet by one of the Governor's party, notes that "three days after the battle Captain Fuller, Wm. Burgees, Richard Evans, Leo Strong, Wm. Durand, Roger Heamans, John Brown, John Cuts, Richard Smith, one Thomas (Philip Thomas), one Bestone, Sampson Warren, Thomas Meares, and one Crouch, sat as a Council of War, condemned a number of the prisoners to die, and executed four of them."

March 20, 1656-7, Lieutenant Philip Thomas was appointed one of the six High Commissioners of the Provincial Court, the father of his son-in-law, John Mears, being another. When Oliver Cromwell ordered the revolutionists to return the province to the Proprietary he was one of the commissioners to make the surrender, which was effected on March 24, 1658-9, when the articles of surrender were signed, sealed, and delivered. After this he does not seem to have taken an active part in the political affairs of the province, the notices of his name upon the colonial records having to do with transfers of land, etc., the number of which were considerable.

From a petition to the Colonial Assembly, dated April 16, 1666, we learn that he had returned from a voyage to England in the preceding month. Tuesday, October 17, 1671, the Upper House of Assembly consents to a bill for ferries, among them being one "over Potapsco River, from Philip Thomas point in Anne Arundel Co. to Kent Co."

In April, 1672, George Fox, the founder of the Society of Friends or Quakers, arrived in Maryland, landing at the Patuxent just in time to reach a "general meeting for all the Friends in the Province of Maryland," which had been appointed by John Burnyeat to be held at West River. He describes it as a "very large meeting," and held four days, "to which, besides Friends, came many other people divers of whom were of considerable quality in the world's account." Immediately after this meeting Fox appears to have continued his labours by preaching his doctrines and establishing meetings for discipline at various places in the province. He remained in America until after the "general meeting" at West River, which commenced on the 17th of 3d month (May), 1673, and lasted four days. The next day, being the 21st, he set sail for England. In describing his meeting he says, "divers of considerable account in the government and many others were present, who were generally satisfied, and many of them reached, for it was a wonderful glorious meeting." It is possible, from the language of his will, that Philip Thomas himself was one of those "reached" by George Fox, and there can be no doubt that during his missionary tour his preaching brought a number of the family under the influence of Quakerism, as we find their names enrolled upon the early records of the Society immediately afterward. In point of fact, an examination of those records shows that, for the generation then living and their children, in Maryland at least, George Fox, John Burnyeat, Samuel Bownas, and the other preachers of Quakerism, did very much the same work as was done a century later by John Wesley and the Methodists. Such religion as they had was formal and lifeless; many, indeed, had cast off all restraint, and were living in utter neglect of the ordinances of religion and common morality. The Quaker missionaries coming amongst them with their fervid zeal, and speaking, as they thought, messages direct from heaven, aroused the slumbering souls of their hearers, and reaped a large harvest of converts to what was in fact the first presentation of a spiritual religion they had known.

As a result of this, the Quaker Registers of the end of the seventeenth century are a veritable Libro d'oro in Maryland, containing as they do the names of so many of the leading families of the province. Whether Philip Thomas became a Quaker or not, his widow certainly was one, and probably a preacher of the sect. September 9, 1674, he made his will, which was proved August 10, 1675. A copy, apparently made by one of his sons-in-law, is still preserved at the family seat, "Lebanon," West River, Md. From this he appears to have disposed of much of the land granted him, only mentioning "Beckley," "Fuller's Poynt," and the "Playns," and his two houses in Bristol, England. The clause in the will making "the body of Quakers" a final Court of Appeal in the event of any dispute arising under its provisions, was a common one amongst the Society of Friends, and in this case recourse was had to it. After the death of his widow, Sarah Thomas, his son Samuel claimed all her estates by virtue of a verbal will which he alleged she had made in his favour. This claim was resisted by is brother-in-law, Edward Talbot, and the West River Meeting of Friends was appealed to, to decide the question. The Meeting decided that although she had expressed a wish that Samuel Thomas should be her sole heir, she had not given legal effect to it, and that the state should be equally divided between her several heirs. The two houses in Bristol were sold before September 13, 1690, when John Talbot claimed an interest in the proceeds of the sale in right of his wife, the granddaughter of Philip Thomas, to the extent of and as her share of the whole landed estate."

For a historical context, excerpted from The Cousins' Wars, p. 58:
"The principal fighting in English North America was between Catholics and Puritans in Maryland. In 1645, Captain Richard Ingle, a Parliamentarian, seized the Catholic capital at St. Mary's on Chesapeake Bay, and two Jesuit priests were sent to England in chains. Disgruntled Puritans from Virginia had begun emigrating to Maryland in 1644-45, and in 1649 established a settlement at Providence (now Annapolis), which became the center of Parliamentary strength. St. Mary's was recaptured by the Calvert faction in 1646. Maryland Puritans defeated the Calvert forces again a decade later in the 'Battle of the Severn' in 1655, but the Calverts came back to full power in 1660 with the Restoration."

From Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 46-47:

"With his wife Sarah Harrison and three children, Philip, Sarah and Elizabeth, Philip Thomas came from Bristol, England, in 1651. He was granted five hundred acres, 'Beckley,' on the west of the Chesapeake.

"To this he added 'Thomas Towne,' 'The Plains' and 'Phillip's Addition.' On this he erected his homestead, 'Lebanon,' a view of which is still preserved. On his lands stands Thomas Point Lighthouse.

"His neighbor was Captain Wm. Fuller, the provincial leader. With him, Edward Lloyd, Richard Preston, Samuel Withers went to St. Leonards, and delivered up the captured records [from 1657] With this act he gave up political adventures and joined the Society of Friends, under George Fox. The Quaker Society was made the final court to settle his estate.

"This estate was claimed by his son, Samuel Thomas, through a verbal will which Edward Talbott, his brother-in-law resisted. The question was finally decided by the Society in favor of all the heirs."

From Side-Lights on Maryland History, Vol. 2, pp. 87-91:

"Hockley-in-the-Hole, originally taken up by Edward Darcy, was in 1664 patented to his sons Edward, Joshua and John, the original patent bearing date August 20, 1664, being still in the possession of the present owner of Hockley, Miss Anne Elizabeth Dorsey, lineal descendant of all three of the original patentees. In the year 1681 'Edward Dorsey, Gent. of Ann Arundell County, Son and heir of Edward Dorsey late of said County deceased' assigned his right to his brother John. The parchment document granting Hockley to the three Dorsey brothers bears the autograph of Charles, third Lord Baltimore, and was given under the Great Seal of the Province.

"[Major Edward Dorsey's] house on Prince George's Street, Annapolis, was probably built when he disposed of his interest in Hockley to his youngest brother the 'Honorable John Dorsey.'

"... the Honorable John Dorsey, captain of the Baltimore County militia in later years, took possession of Hockley, three miles from Annapolis, over which his wife, Madam Pleasance Ely, presided, of whom it has been noted--perhaps as a warning to her descendants, that her name was in no sense suggestive of her disposition."

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland, p. 56:

"The following record is taken from 'Our Early Settlers.'--A list of our early arrivels [sic] up to 1680.

"'Robert Bullen demands lands for bringing over a number of passengers, amongst whom was Edward Dorsey, in 1661.'

"The same record adds, 'Aug. 25th [20th], 1664, patented to him, John and Joshua Dorsey, a plantation called "Hockley-in-the-Hole," four hundred acres.'

"In 1683, this land was resurveyed for John Dorsey, and found to contain 843 acres. 400 acres first surveyed being old rents remaining new, whole now in the possession of Caleb Dorsey.

"Such is the record of 'Hockley' upon our Rent Rolls, at Annapolis."

Ibid., p. 30:
"In 1664, the three sons of Edward Dorsey, the immigrant of 1650--relatives of the Howards--took up and patented their father's survey of 'Hockley-in-the-Hole.' They were Colonel Edward Dorsey, Joshua and Hon. John Dorsey, prominent leaders in political movements and representatives in legislative measures."

Ibid., pp. 61-62:

"HON. JOHN DORSEY, OF 'HOCKLEY.'

"Coming into possession of 'Hockley,' in 1683, Hon. John Dorsey married Plesance Ely, who later took up a tract of land on Elk Ridge, which she named 'The Isle of Ely.' In 1694, Hon. John Dorsey, was a commissioner for the development of Annapolis. He was upon many important committees during his service in the Lower House of the Assembly. In 1711, he was advanced to the Upper House, and there remained until his death in 1714. During his life-time he was a surveyor of a vast estate of valuable lands. He left an exceedingly intelligent will of entail, which gives a summary of his large estate. It reads: 'My wife, Plesance, is to have one-third of my estate, and also the choice of my estate on South River, or my now dwelling place on Elk Ridge [Troy]. To my grandson, John Dorsey, son of my son, Edward Dorsey, deceased, my Patuxent plantation and lands thereunto adjoining called 'Dorsey's Search,' lying in Baltimore County. If no issue, to go to the three youngest grandchildren of my daughter, Deborah

'I give to my grandson, Edward Dorsey, son of my son, Edward Dorsey, de ceased, "Dorsey's Adventure" and "Whitaker's Purchase" adjoining it. If he leave no issue, then to John, of Edward, and if he leave none, then as above, to Deborah's youngest three children. To my grandsons, Charles and William Ridgely, of Deborah, my tract called "White Wine and Claret," south side of the middle branch of the Patuxent. If they leave no issue, to go to Martha, Elinor and Edward Clagett.

'I give to my two grandsons, Samuel and Richard, of Caleb, my son, my plantation on South River, called "South River Quarter," it being the remainder of a tract given to my son, Caleb. In case of no issue, the same to go to granddaughters, Achsah and Sophia of Caleb.

'To grandson, Basil, of Caleb, my plantation on Elk Ridge, called "Troy." If no issue, to my grandsons, John and Caleb, of Caleb. My son, Caleb, to be my administrator.--JOHN DORSEY. (Seal.'

"Mrs. Plesance Dorsey became Mrs Robert Wainwright. Her tract, 'The Isle of Ely,' was sold by her grandson, 'Patuxent John Dorsey,' to Basil Dorsey, of Caleb, whose homestead, 'Troy Hill,' was the former residence of Hon. John Dorsey."

Notes for Captain John Dorsey:
[Ancestors of Abednego Baker by Muriel Schulz.ged]

From Anne Arundel Gentry, p. 10:
Edward Dorsey II before 1683 assigned to his brother, John, his portion of 400 acres for 24,000 lbs. Tobacco. Joshua, the second son, had conveyed his portion of "Hockley" for 8,000 lbs. Tobacco. In 1685 Caleb Dorsey, son of John, had the plantation resurveyed and found that it contained 843 acres instead of the original 400.

[Page 10]: 1681 - Deed from Edward Dorsey II, to John Dorsey:
Edward Dorsey of the County of Anne Arundel Gent son and heir of Edward Dorsey late of the County of Anne Arundel . . . deceased. . . whereas the Rt. Honorable Cecillius Lord Baron of Baltimore by his pattent bearing date the twentieth day of August one thousand six hundred and sixty four for ye Consideration therein mentioned Grant unto the said Edward Dorsey, Joshua Dorsey and John Dorsey my brothers a parcell of land Called Hockley in ye Hole lying in Anne Arundel County aforesaid on ye South side Seaverne River in ye Woods beginning at a marke Oake being a bound tree of the land of Cornelius and Samuell Howard . . . . the said four hundred Acres of land unto the said Edward Dorsey, John Dorsey and Joshua Dorsey . . . .

The indenture was witnessed by Richard Hill and Nicholas Greenbury. Ref. A.A. Co. Deeds, Liber IH:, No. 3, folio 62-63, Hall of Records, Annapolis.


The inventory of his personal estate was taken on April 25, 1715 and filed by his son and executor, Caleb Dorsey. At the home-plantation there were 11 slaves and in "ye new Roome" were books and a pair of spectacles. His quarters at Elk Ridge had five slaves, the Patuxent Quarters four slaves, but none was listed at the South River Quarters. The entire estate was appraised at 1440/3/9 with credit due from merchants in London. Richard Clagett and John Dorsey approved as the next of kin.

He apparently had a state funeral and certainly one in which the mourners and friends enjoyed traditional Maryland hospitality. At an account filed on April 11, 1716, 10 gallons of rum and 30 gallons of cider were consumed as well as cakes costing 2 lbs. The Rev. Williams Tebbs who preached the funeral sermon was given 2 lbs. At that time the widow was allotted her third, that is 321/8/3 plus 4/154 lbs. tobacco.

From http://www.eskimo.com/~bgudgel/gudgarc1 :

Sometime around 1658 Edward Dorsey took up a tract of land containing 400 acres, lying in Anne Arundel County on the south side of the Severn River and or a branch of Broad Creek. This tract was later patented by his three sons. See Patents 7, f.378. In the year 1664 there was granted to Edward, Joshua and John Dorsey, 2,000 acres of land lying on the Severn River, not far from where the city of Annapolis now stands. A part of this, called "Hockley-in-ye-Hole" (hole meaning valley) which remained interminably in the hands of the descendants of John Dorsey to the present time. In 1681, Major Edward Dorsey transferred his interest in Hockley-in-the-Hole to his brother John. The transfer reads: "To all Christian People To Whom This Writing Shall Come, be Heard or Seen: I, Edward Dorsey, of the county of Anne Arundel, son and heir of the late Edward Dorsey, gentleman, deceased, for the consideration of 24,000 pounds of good merchantable tobacco, transfer my right in a tract of land called "Hockley-in-the- Hole" granted to Edward, Joshua and John Dorsey in 1664 to my brother, John Dorsey; and I further covenant to guarantee his right to said land against any demand that may descend from my said Father, Edward Dorsey, for or by reason of any right due to him in his lifetime or by reason of any survey by him made, or warrant returned, or for any other reason or any other matter." "Hockley" in the valley had pleasant environments. To the east, toward Annapolis, was the Carroll estates; to the north was the home of Gen. John Hammond; to the northwest were the lands of Cornelius, Samuel and John Howard; to the southwest was "Todd's Gap" through which the road to Lancelot Todd's led, and to the south the ancient Dorsey "God's Acre" which has since been abandoned for the family burial spot within the charming gardens of "Hockley" itself.

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/dorsey.html:

John Dorsey2, was born ca. 1645 in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, the son of Edward and his wife Ann, and died in 1715 in Maryland. He emigrated with his family in 1649 to Anne Arundel County, Maryland. John married in 1684 Pleasance ELY . One source identifies her as the step-daughter of Thomas WAINWRIGHT (d. 1729), while another states Thomas was her second husband. John is usually referred to in the records as "Hon." or Captain, a rank he held from 1695 until his death in 1714/5. Although raised as a Friend, he was later identified as Protestant, meaning neither Quaker or Anglican.[19]

"In 1663 John was living with his brothers at "Hockley in the Hole", Anne Arundel County, because it was surveyed for them on 27 January that year. This 400 acre plot had been taken up by their father sometime before 1658, on the south side of the Severn "and or a branch of Broad Creek". In 1681 John bought out his brothers' rights to it. He paid Edward 24,000 pounds of tobacco for it and additional land Edward had bought, and paid 8,000 pounds to Joshua. When it was resurveyed in 1683 (or 1685) it was found to contain 842 (or 843) acres (or resurveyed in 1685 and contained 1,842 acres).[20] The secondary accounts of the original records are a little hard to interpret in large part because they don't always differentiate among the multiplicity of bureaucratic steps necessary to secure title to a tract of land. The original patent was in the possession of a descendent, Anne Elizabeth Dorsey, who was still living in the old homestead in 1913. A photo of that date shows a relatively small house with two dormers on the roof, one chimney at the left end of the photo, and a narrow porch with a roof two storeys high suported on thin columns. The house was nearly obscured with shrubbery.[21] When we went to find it in April 2004, there was a white historical marker on the road, but the two houses that might conceivably have been a remnant of the old homestead both looked twentieth century, to me.

"John purchased significant amounts of land during his life. A list of them, by their names, includes:[22]

"Howard's Heirship" (150 acres) purchased from Cornelius and Elizabeth HOWARD on 4 August 1679; they were the brother and sister-in-law of our John Howard ;
"Hockley in the Hole", purchased Edward's and Joshua's rights in 1681; resurveyed in 1683 and found to contain 842 acres (see above);
"Orphan's Addition", near "Hockley in the Hole", on 10 March 1697, which he gave to his son Caleb on 6 August 1702;
"Dorsey's Adventure" (400 acres on Elk Ridge between the Patuxent and Patapsco) on 30 Feb [sic: perhaps April?] 1688; this tract with the next one were called "Patuxent Plantation", and were bequeathed to John's grandson, John Dorsey;
"Dorsey's Search" (479 acres) purchased on 6 December 1694 from James BAYLEY;
"Troy" (763 acres) on 12 October 1694;
"White Wine and Claret" (1,400 acres) on 6 January 1702;
"Whitaker's Purchase" (79 acres) in 1704;
"Roper's Increase" (100 acres) obtained on 14 February 1705 from Cornelius and Mary HOWARD;
"Mt. Gilboa" (245 acres) in 1706, which he conveyed the next year to Richard COLEGATE.

"On 12 June 1688 John and his brother Edward acquired land in what was then Baltimore County (now Howard County). Edward settled on his "Major's Choice", but John did not build on his "Dorsey's Adventure". Instead John commissioned surveyors to "go beyond Richard Warfield" in upper Anne Arundel County. There on 10 November 1695 he patented "Troy", 736 acres, between the present towns of Elkridge and Guilford, where he built his home. He also patented "Isle of Ely", named for his wife's family, and "Dorsey's Search". Another source says that Pleasance herself took up the tract after John's death, which she named "The Isle of Ely". The tax return of 1695 recorded, "John Dawsey's Quarter, on Elke Ridge, etc.", so John had a house there by that year. This makes "Troy" the oldest remaining house in Howard County, although it has been greatly altered. Originally "Troy" was a one-storey house with a front porch devoid of any ornamentation other than a simple ballustrade. Other floors were added later. The interior and exterior walls were about two feet thick. The old family burial ground was on one side of the house. The front porch now overlooks Meadowridge Cemetery (once part of the Dorsey estate) and route I-95. The entrance is from route 1 north of Dorsey Road.[23]

"John, like his brothers, probably opposed the Revolution of 1689. He gained his first appointed office from Governor Francis NICHOLSON who was sympathetic to the proprietor. From then on John had an active public career. He was appointed Justice of the Peace in Anne Arundel County in 1694 and 1696. In 1694 he was appointed to a commission charged with laying out the town and port of Anne Arundel in the County of the same name. On 17 May 1695 he petitioned the Assembly for a boat to carry the Burgesses of Anne Arundel County to St. Mary's. He was Captain in the Baltimore County militia in 1696. John served on a commission to oversee and direct construction of a Provincial prison in Annapolis. He was named to another commission to report on repairs to a house (purchased from his cousin Major Edward Dorsey) for the storage of public arms.[24]

"In 1692, after the consolidation of the reign of William and Mary in England, a new government was elected in Maryland that was very unsympathetic to Friends. They required an oath of allegiance in order to sit in the Assembly, and four Friends were immediately dismissed. The lower house tried to substitute an affirmation, but Governor Lionel COPLEY insisted on conforming to English practice. That year the Church of England was established, with a compulsary poll tax of forty pounds of tobacco. There were renewed efforts to force Friends to serve in the militia. The following year Friends were not permitted to give evidence in court unless they gave an oath. John Dorsey served as a member of the lower House of Assembly in 1692-93, and again in 1701-04 when a modified bill, rewritten by the Privy Council to meet some of the objections of Friends, was passed. It retained the 40 lb. tax to support the established church, and Friends continued up until the Revolution to suffer distraint of goods for refusing to pay it. In 1704 a bill was passed stipulating again that all office-holders must swear an oath.[25] I do not know how John felt about these attacks on his family's faith.

"John sat in the Lower House for Anne Arundel County in 1692-93 and 1701-04. He was appointed to the Provincial Council where he served from 1710/1 to 1714/5. On 18 January 1714 he described himself as "being lame and indisposed" and asked to be excused from the Council meeting. The following year the Council was said to consist of twelve "of the most able and discreet gentlemen" of the Province, including "John Dorsey, Esq., lately deceased."[26]

"John was a planter and merchant, somewhat more prosperous and less controversial than his older brother Edward. At the time of his first election, in 1692, John owned 1,242 acres. By 1696 he owned 2,484. In 1699 he was listed among the taxables on the South side of Patapsco, owning five slaves. Shortly thereafter he moved his family to "Troy", 763 acres at Elk Ridge, Baltimore County, which had been surveyed 12 October 1694. He took up 1,400 acres called "White Wine and Claret" between the present towns of Simpsonville and Clarksville in Howard County on 6 January 1702. The story goes that he sent out the surveyors with an ample supply of those liquid refreshments; when they returned with crooked lines, John figured that was the cause, and kept the name. The tax lists for Baltimore County sometimes indicate the number of slaves he owned at various plantations. In 1699 he had five on South Side Patapsco; in 1702 four, and in 1703 ten at Elk Ridge.[27]

"A few Friends were exercised about the institution of slavery, citing Jesus' injunction to do unto others as you would have them do unto you. But nothing was done at this time to rid the Society of Friends of this blemish. A few Friends were also exercised about the excessive use of tobacco. Hardshaw Monthly Meeting in Lancashire, Old England, minuted this advice 14 Fourth Month [June] 1691:

'It being considered that the too frequent use of smoking Tobacco is inconsistent with friends holy profession, it is desired that such as have occasion to make use thereof take it privately, neither too publicly in their own houses, nor by the highways, streets, or in alehouses or elsewhere, tending to the abetting the common excess.[27a]'

"Most Maryland Friends were oblivious of these movements that would impact so heavily on their economic and social well being.

"John signed his will in Baltimore County on 26 November 1714; it was witnessed by six men, one of whom signed with a mark. It was probated 22 March 1714/5. He left one third of his real and personal estate, after the payment of his debts, to his wife Pleasance as full payment of her dower. She was to be given her choice of either the plantation on South River or "my own dwelling plantation" on Elk Ridge. Her share of the estate included four human beings: Jacob and his wife Jenny, and two other Negro men, Lyman and Sambo. John's extensive real estate holdings and the remaining slaves were carefully apportioned to his grandchildren, with instructions for their further disposal if a given grandchild died with no heirs. His daughter Deborah was to be given £50, doled out at the rate of £8 per year "for her support", but no real estate. Her children were the third back-up to inherit if other grandchildren died without heirs. The residue went to his son Caleb, who was named executor. Nathaniell and Thomasin STINCHCOMB owed money to him.[28]

"An inventory of John's property was taken on 25 April 1715 by Thomas HAMMOND and John ISRAEL. The only values given in the Dorsey Family's copy were for the seventeen enslaved people. An odd assortment of items were listed "At the Home Plantation", "In the New Room", and "in the Kitchen". They included one silver tankard and one silver spoon; a dozen old leather chairs, six new leather chairs, and 4 "Turkey workt" chairs; an old sealskin trunk; a gun and 1/4 lb. of gunpowder; a small looking glass; one feather bed with canvas tick[ing], rug blanket, sheets, bedstead, and pillows; another feather bed and furniture, curtains and "vallens" [valence]; one pair Taylors Shears; a pair of money scales and weights; one parcel of new books; a pair of spectacles and case; 8 small brushes, 3 old combs, 3 pair sissors; 1 parcel of spice. There were lots of shoes, indicating the kind of merchandize with which John dealt: 2 dozen and 10 pair men's shoes, 3 pair women's shoes, 21 pair men's shoes. To go with them, 13 pair "large wove" stockings, 1 pair motheaten stockings, 20 pair of 4-thread hose, 5 pair women's thread stockings, 8 pair men's worsted hose, 1 pair large wove stockings. Then there was thread: 6.5 lbs. colored, 3 lbs. "Whited brown, coarse", 2 lbs. finer, 1 lb. brown, 1.5 lb. White and Brown, .5 lb. fine white, and about 1 lb. silk. John also had 6 gross Coat buttons and 6.5 gross Vest buttons, and about 5 gross fine thread [buttons?]. The only food mentioned was 1,692 lbs. of bacon. Negroes were listed "in the Kitchen": 2-year-old girl Beck; 6-year-old boy Sambo; 4-year-old boy Roger; 10-year-old girl Sarah, "much hurt by fire"; a "dropsical man" Jack; men named Jack and Tom, and one without a name; a woman, Beck, and young (unnamed) girl with child. The total value of these ten people was a mere £163 and 10d. At the Elk Ridge House there was ten lbs. of old pewter, a punch bowl, and more enslaved people: men named Simon, Sambo, Jack, and Toby; a woman named Jenny, a one-year old girl named Hagar and another girl (age not listed) named Juno. They were valued at £157. Other, unspecified items were at "Pattuxant Quarter", at South River, and at the "New Design". He probably owned about 5,000 acres; his estate was valued at £2,752.11.1.[29]

"Pleasance, "of austere memory" was described in family records: "between her name and her disposition there was no similarity." She married a second time, on 30 November 1722, Thomas WAINWRIGHT. With this marriage, "Troy" passed to her grandson Basil Dorsey, son of Caleb. Thomas died in 1729, leaving Pleasance the greater part of his estate. Pleasance apparently used her wealth to invest in land. A warrant was made out for her 17 December 1717 for 200 acres called "Isle of Ely" adjacent to "Troy". That year she also bought 100 acre "Oldman's Folly". In 1720 she bought 200 acre "Roper's Increase" (perhaps part of the original of which her husband had bought 79 acres in 1705), 50 acre "Howard's Addition", and 120 acre "Poplar Spring Garden" in Baltimore County at the head of the Patapsco River, adjacent to "Howard's Ridge".[30]

"Pleasance died in 1734. Her estate was appraised 14 August 1734, by Benjamin HOWARD and John HAMMOND, son of Charles. Her possessions included some items that had been in her first husband's inventory. Pleasance had wearing apparel, a silver tankard and cups, a silver spoon, thimble, and buckles, 3 silk handkerchiefs, taylor's shears, 2 small punch bowls, 4 ivory handled knives and forks, a pepper box, 1 caster, 1 tin baster, 1 flesh fork, 1 cutting knife and 1 pen knife, 2 chests, a pair of spectacles, 2 "Turkey-workt" chairs, 6 old books (unspecified), furniture and kitchen utensils, stock and feed, one old Negro man named Tom, one old Negro woman named Beck, and one Negro lad named George.[31]

From Side-Lights on Maryland History, vol. 2, pp. 212-213:

"This Charles Ridgely married Deborah Dorsey, the daughter of Honorable John Dorsey and Pleasance Ely. Of this lady the family records say between her name and her disposition there was no similarity."

Ibid., pp. 87-91:

"...It was at the house on Prince George's Street that Major Edward Dorsey lived during the lifetime of his first wife, Sarah Wyatt, while the Honorable John Dorsey, captain of the Baltimore County militia in later years, took possession of Hockley, three miles from Annapolis, over which his wife, Madam Pleasance Ely, presided, of whom it has been noted--perhaps as a warning to her descendants, that her name was in no sense suggestive of her disposition.

"Certain it is that the amiable Sarah, wife of Major Edward Dorsey, died, after bearing six sons and two daughters to her liege lord, while 'Pleasance,' of austere memory, buried the 'Honorable John,' and was led a second time to the altar by Thomas Wainwright."

He left an exceedingly intelligent will of entail, which gives a summary of his large estate. It reads: 'My wife, Plesance, is to have one-third of my estate, and also the choice of my estate on South River, or my now dwelling place on Elk Ridge...

"Mrs. Plesance Dorsey became Mrs Robert Wainwright. Her tract, 'The Isle of Ely,' was sold by her grandson, 'Patuxent John Dorsey,' to Basil Dorsey, of Caleb, whose homestead, 'Troy Hill,' was the former residence of Hon. John Dorsey."

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 101-103:

THE BEALE FAMILY

A Scottish family, with a ringing bell as its coat of arms, was early represented in our province.
The leader was a famous officer, Colonel Ninian Beale, born in Fifeshire, or near Edinburgh, about 1625. Having fought, in 1650, against Cromwell at Dunbar, he was captured and transported to Calvert County, Maryland.
This same immigrant was called the "Covenanter," whose zeal caused him in some way, to be mixed up with the killing of a Bishop Montgomery, in an effort to keep Episcopacy out of Scotland.
He came, in 1655, and located in Calvert County. Intelligent and of a strong character, he at once became a leader in the contests of that period.
He was with Colonel Coursey and Colonel William Stephens, "When they sent Captain Beale before them to find Captain Brandt." Information being delivered into his lordship's hands by Captain Ninian Beale, it was ordered to be entered in the Council book; and by his lordship's special command, power be given to Captain Ninian Beale, of Calvert County, to press man and horse anytime, upon urgent occasion, to give his lordship intelligence." ordered, also, at the same time, "that six men in arms, under Captain Ninian Beale, be commanded out to continue ranging between the head of the Patuxent, up to the Susquehanna, forth for discovery of the Indian enemy." Captain Beale, in 1689, signed the Declaration of Remonstrance, in which it was declared, that "All rumors of an Indian invasion, supported by Catholics, were found to be false."
For Captain Beale's services he was granted an estate that extended over several counties. He surveyed near the National Capitol, and upon one of his surveys, a number of Presbyterian families were induced to settle. One of his tracts was the "Rock of Dumbarton." Geoirgetown stands upon this survey. There was another one at Bennings, and still another at Collington, Prince George County. Here was located Ninian Beale, Jr., the testator of 1710, who named only two children, Mary and Samuel. His sister, Jane, daughter of colonel Ninian and Ruth Moore, married Colonel Archibald Edmonson, whose daughter, Ruth Edmondson, married Rev. John Orme, who married Elizabeth Johns, whose daughter, Charlotte Orme, becaue Mrs. Daniel Douglass. Colonel Ninian died, 1717, age ninety-three years.

Noted events in his life were:

• Fought: against Cromwell at Dunbar, 1625.

• Transported to: Calvert County, Maryland, 1655.

• Signed: Declaration of Remonstrance, 1689.

Ninian married Ruth Polly Moore in 1668 in Calvert, Maryland, (United States). Ruth was born between 1648 and 1652 in St. Mary's, Calvert, Maryland, (United States) and died in 1707 in Prince George's Co., Maryland, (United States).

         ii.  Ninian Beale Jr. (died after 1709)

        iii.  Jane Beale

         iv.  Colonel George Beale (born in 1695 in Upper Marlborough, Maryland, (United States) - died on 15 Mar 1780 in Georgetown, Maryland (District of Columbia), (United States))

"Thomas Hyatt, of Stamford, Ct

"This name does not occur in the list of the list of the first 28 or 30 settlers at Stamford, in the spring and summer of 1641; but at a town meeting, Dec. 7, 1641, to 'Tho. Hyoute' and others were granted, 'besides house lotts as oth' men haue,' 'every of them twoe acres [house-lot?] and 3 acres wood land in the feiled now to be inclosed.' 'Thomas hiout' was a witness in Stamford, Feb. 26, 1647. On the S. records, in boundaries of land, the name of 'Thomas Hiout' occurs several times in 1649 and 1650, also, 'Thomas hout,' the same years, and 'goodman hout,' 'Thomas hyout,' and 'Thomas hiat,' in 1650. 'Thomas hiout' bought 7-1/2 acres of upland in 'Rocky necke,' April 3, 1650. The S. records state that 'Tho:hyat died 9 Sept., 1656,' and give an inventory of the estate of 'Thomas hiat,' amounting to 132£. 2s. 3d., 'presented in the cort at Stamford, June, 1662.' After taking out the widow's thirds there remained 'in ye hands of Cornelius Joans ye sume of 88£-1s-6d, as portions to be divided amongst the six children according to lawe.' The published records of New Haven Colony also mention this inventory of the est. of 'Thomas Hyatt late of Stamford,' presented at S., June 16, 1662. Cornelius Jones married the widow, Elizabeth Hyat, Oct 6, 1657; and in 1669 and 1674 three of the children signed receipts to their father-in-law, Cornelius Jones, for their share in the est. of their father, Thomas Hiat. These receipts are copied on the same pages with those of the children of Simon Hoyt; but thery were evidently written later, with different ink, in vacant spaces left at the bottom of the pages. This name of Thomas Hyatt is printed Hoyt in the 'List of Pioneers,' History of Stamford, but it is not so written on the records, andw e find no descendants of Thomas who bear any other name but Hyatt, and its various modifications, Hiat, Hyet, etc., except in one or two entries, where Hoit is plainly an error for Hyatt."

From Helene Stone (helenestone@yahoo.com) 21 Sep 2009:
"My records show that Richard Ewen patented land in Virginia in 1638 and came to Maryland in 1649."

------------

I verified that this information is correct. As yet undetermined, however, is whether Major Richard Ewen is the same individual as Richard Owens, who was one of the "non-conformists" (Puritans) who settled in Virginia in the 1630's and 1640's. The laws of the Virginia province required that its landholders adhere to the Church of England. Persons who did not do so were banished from the colony. This situation came to a head in 1648, when the Puritans had until October 1648 to conform to the Church. Instead of doing so, the majority of the Virginia settlers, invited by the Protestant governor of Maryland, William Stone, relocated to Maryland, where they were given patents for undeveloped land. A good description of these events can be found in Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, pp. 5-10.

As evidence that there were likely two individuals of similar names (Richard Owens and Richard Ewen) in the same places and times, both men are mentioned in Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, in successive and different contexts. Richard Owens was among the Puritan landholders in Virginia who relocated to Maryland in 1648 or 1649. From that book, page 8:

"[John Hammond, the historian,] declares, 'Maryland was considered by the Puritans as a refuge. The lord proprietor [Calvert, Lord Baltimore] and his governor [William Stone] solicited, and several addresses made for their admittance and entertainment into that province, under the conditions that they should have convenient portions of land assigned, the liberty of conscience and privilege to choose their own officers.'

"'After their arrival,' continues Hammond, 'an assembly was called throughout the whole county, consisting as well of themselves as the rest, and because there were some few papists that first inhabited, these themselves, and others, being different judgements, an act was passed that all professing Jesus Christ should have equal justice.' And, 'At the request of the Virginia Puritans,' the oath of fidelity was overhauled and this clause added to it: 'Provided it infringe not the liberty of conscience.'

"This was confirmed in 1650.

"In confirmation of Hammond's statement, our 'Rent Rolls' show that Edward Lloyd, in 1649, was granted a permit to lay out one thousand acres on the western side of the Chesapeake Bay to the northward of the Patuxent River, and a small creek, about the middle of 'The Cliffs,' adjoining the lands of Richard Owens, there and to the northward of the Patuxent, not formally taken up yet.'"

The above is the Richard Owens whose land adjoined Edward Lloyd's north of the Patuxent, in the vicinity of "The Cliffs." Those tracts were a great distance south of the Magothy River (see below).

References to Richard Ewen by that name follow here. (Remember, Richard Owens and Richard Ewen were probably different individuals):

Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, p. 10:

"[In 1650 the house of Edward Lloyd, newly-made commander of Providence (Anne Arundel County) by Governor Stone's appointment] was the Council Chamber. His immediate neighbors were William Crouch, on the Severn; Richard Young, on the Magothy; Ralph Hawkins, of the Magothy; Richard Ewen, of the Magothy; William Hopkins, Thomas Browne, John Browne, Henry Catlyn, John Clarke were all near the Commander upon North Severn."

Ibid., p. 13:

"HERRING CREEK HUNDRED"

"Samuel Chew laid out Herrington.

"[In 1649 and 1650] Thomas Marsh took up lands on the west side of Herring Creek, beginning at Parker's Branch, and running to Selby's Cove; he also held a thousand acres adjoining Richard Bennett, running up the bay... [Edward Selby] adjoined Thomas Meeres on the west side of South River, next to John Watkins; in all some 1000 acres. William Parker adjoined Thomas Marsh on Herring Creek, and also, Richard Bennett, Sampson Warring, and Thomas Davis on the bay, holding 1200 acres. William Durand adjoined Edward Selby, running down the bay; John Covell adjoined William Durand; Thomas Emerson adjoined William Parker; Captain Edward Carter, near Herring Creek, adjoined William Ayers, whose lands were assigned him by Thomas Marsh. Richard Ewen adjoined Richard Bennett and Richard Talbott, on Herring Creek. Richard Wells, Chirurgeon, was on the west side of Herring Bay, adjoining Stockett's Creek, holding 600 acres. The three Stockett brothers were on Stockett's Run; they did not come from Virginia... Richard Bennett held thousands of acres at Herring Creek, and later as many more upon the Eastern Shore."

Ibid., pp. 27-29:
"[After the 'Battle of the Severn' on 25 March 1655] In 1657, Captain [William] Fuller called an Assembly to meet at the home of Colonel Richard Preston, on the Patuxent. The lower house consisted of ten members, with Colonel Richard Ewen speaker. There were present, besides the speaker, Captain Robert Sley, Captain Joseph Weeks, Mr. Robert Taylor, Captain Thomas Besson, Mr. Peter Sharp, Captain Phil Morgan, Mr. Richard Brooks and Mr. James Johnson. They confirmed the 'Act of Recognition.' On the 30th of November, 1657, Lord Baltimore and Richard Bennett completed their compromise. In substance it was an agreement by Lord Baltimore to overlook the disturbance of the Severn; to grant patents of land to all the Puritan settlers who could claim them, by taking an altered oath of fidelity,--whilst the law granting freedom of religion should stand as proclaimed in 1649. Bennett and Matthews signed the agreement with Lord Baltimore. Governor Fendall, who had been called to England for further instructions, returned to the province in 1658. He called his council together at St. Mary's, and sent letters [to those composing the government at Providence], desiring them to give him and his secretary, Captain Thomas Corwallis, a meeting at Leonard's Creek, in Patuxent River, upon March 18th, following...

"On account of the stormy season, the delegates of Anne Arundel did not arrive until the 20th. They were Captain Wm. Fuller, Mr. Richard Preston, Mr. Edward Lloyd, Mr. Thomas Meeres, Mr. Philip Thomas, and Mr. Samuel Withers...

"After the lapse of six years, his Lordship's dominion was again restored, yet the settlers were still independent. Governor Fendall and his secretary had, in 1657, at a meeting on the Severn, taken up the settlement of Anne Arundel and ordered, 'That Wm. Burgess, Thomas Meeres, Robert Burle, Thomas Todde, Roger Grosse, Thomas Howell, Richard Wells, Richard Ewen, John Brewer, Anthony Salway and Richard Woolman, gentlemen, should be commissioners for said county, to appear by summons of the sheriff, at the house of Edward Lloyd, to take oath of Commissioners and Justices of the Peace, and that the 23rd instant should be the first court day.--(By order of the Governor and Secretary, Mr. Nathaniel Utie, at Anne Arundel, July 12th, 1657).'

"The warrant was issued by Captain John Norwood, Sheriff. Wm. Burgess, Thomas Meeres and Richard Ewen refused to take the oath of Commissioners of Justice, alleging, as an excuse, that it was not lawful to swear.

"Their pleas were refused and Captain Thomas Besson, Captain Howell and Thomas Taylor were appointed in their stead.

"Then was taken up the establishment of militia force. It was resolved that the forces be divided into two regiments. One for the Potomac and Patuxent Rivers, commanded by the governor himself; the other, from the coves up to the Severn, and including the Isle of Kent, to be commanded by Nathaniel Utie, assisted by Captain John Cumber, Major Richard Ewen and Captain Thomas Howell, on South River, up to the head of it."

Ibid., p. 29:
"A writ was issued in 1657, to Captain John Norwood, to choose burgesses for an assembly to be held at St. Leonard's, in the County of Calvert. The assembly met at St. Leonard's in 1658. It was there enacted, 'That the oath of fidelity shall not be pressed upon the people of the province, but instead, a promise to submit to the authority of the Right Honorable Cecilius Lord Baltimore, and his heirs within the province, and that none should be disarmed.'

"This was agreed to by Captain Josias Fendall and Philip Calvert, principal secretary. It was also assented to by the Upper and Lower House of Burgesses."

From Baltimore: Its History and Its People, Vol. III pp. 794-5:

"Major Richard Ewen, who came to Maryland in 1649, demanded and received from the government a grant of one thousand acres of land for transporting himself, his family, and three other persons to the colony 'at his own expense'. He was a prominent man, having been appointed and served on several commissions, was for many years a member of the House of Burgesses, during a part of which time he acted as its speaker. He married Sophia ___________, who survived him and married (second) Colonel William Burgess, also a prominent man in the community. They had one child, Susanna, who married Major Nicholas, son of Hon. Henry and Jane (Lowe) Sewall, of Mathapany, on the Pautuxent. Jane (Lowe) Sewall married (second) Charles, third Lord Baltimore. Dr. Christopher Johnson was a descendant of Major Nicholas and Susanna (Ewen) Sewall."

"...Major Richard Ewen, one of the commissioners to govern Maryland under Oliver Cromwell. .. Major Richard Ewen, father-in-law of William Richardson, was one of the Council of War after the battle of the Severn, which condemned Governor Stone and others to die."

----------

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=jhmjr&id=I15021, which quotes Craycrofts of Maryland and Kentucky Kin, p. 15:

"... Major Richard Ewen was one of ten commissioners appointed 22 July 1654, by Bennett and Claiborne, to direct the affairs of Maryland under Oliver Cromwell, Lord Protector of England. The Puritans called a General Assembly at Patuxent in 1654, barring Catholics and those who bore arms against Parliament, and passed The Act of Recognition 20 October 1654 enacting laws for the governing of the Province.

Ewen served twice as speaker of the Lower House. He served as speaker in the session of the General Assembly called 24 September 1657, during Cromwell's rule in England. He was a burgess from Anne Arundel County in the session of the Assembly called at Lord Baltimore's direction 28 February 1660, and served as speaker of the Lower House for the second time. It was during this session and under Ewen's leadership as speaker that it was resolved that the Assembly should continue as a bicameral legislative body.

Capt. Richard Ewen was one of the commissioners present at a Provincial Court 13 August 1655. He subsequently was commissioned as a major of the militia 12 July 1658. On 22 July 1658 be was asked to take an oath of office but Major Ewen desired to be excused because of his military appointment, and his excuse was allowed. Another commissioner was appointed in his stead.

Richard Ewen immigrated to Virginia and transported Nicholas Ewen and Christopher Roades. He received a patent for 150 acres of land in Norfolk Co., Virginia, 14 August 1638 for his own personal adventure and the transportation of two persons. He assigned his right to this tract of land to John Wright in July 1643.

He entered Maryland in 1649 and was granted 1,000 acres of land in Herring Creek Hundred on West River. He received a grant of 350 acres of land south of Patapsco River 19 November 1652, and a grant of 600 acres of land on the Severn River 26 November 1652.

During the Cromwellian regime in England, Gov. William Stone was displaced from his authority in Maryland. He attempted to reestablish himself as governor and entered the northern stronghold by boat. In the ensuing battle of the Severn, Capt. Richard Ewen commanded one of the "Trayn Bands of Patuxent," a company of militia. Three days following the defeat and capture of Stone and fifty of his men, Ewen was one of the eight members of the council of war who condemned Stone and eight other men to death, four of whom were executed." [Note, one of the four was Thomas Hatton, the uncle of Elizabeth Hatton who married Luke Gardiner]

Maj. Richard Ewen died intestate. He named five of his children, Elizabeth, Richard, John, Susanna, and Ann, in his demand for 1,000 acres of land in 1650."

From Some Prominent Virginia Families, p. 340:

"[Richardsons] came with the Chews, Coles, Thomases, Ewens, Sparrows, Hutchens and Pierponts. Some of [Elizabeth Richardson's] immediate ancestors were prominent men in the early history of the Colony. Among them was William Richardson, a leading citizen of Anne Arundel Co., for many years a member of the General Assembly. He came to Maryland with Maj. Richard Ewen, before 1650. He was a Major in the forces of the Colony; Speaker of the Assembly several times; member of the Council, and one of the 'High Commissioners,' to govern Maryland under Protector Cromwell. Maj. Ewen was one of the first to take up land on the Patapsco River. On November 19, 20, 21, and 22, 1655, Lord Baltimore, Surveyor General, laid out tracts of land on the Patapsco River for several persons, including Maj. Ewen and Thomas Sparrow, also an ancestor of Elizabeth Richardson. The land taken up by Thomas Sparrow has since been known as 'Sparrow's Point.' John Chew and his son, Samuel Chew, were also members of the General Assembly and among the most prominent men in the Colony. Both left large estates for their day."

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/ewen/messages/180.html :
I have received information on Elizabeth Ewen Talbott and her father Major Richard Ewen through the Genealogical society of Rockingham & Stokes County, North Carolina where my line through William Richardson & Elizabeth settled generations later. William Richardson was a prominent Quaker and had a home in West River Maryland with Elizabeth. The article was written by Wm L. (Butch Johnson)

The Ewen family settled in Maryland in 1649 and it appears that Elizabeth Ewen was possibly married at that time, which would indicate that Richard Talbott was her second husband. In 1650 May 17th, Richard Ewen demandeth One Thousand Acres of land for transporting himself and nine persons into this province the last year Vizt. Sophia his wife Eliza Davy, Richard Ewen Jr., John Ewen, Suzanna Ewen, Ann Ewen, William Davies, John King and James Brown at his own Charges. Tester James Cox. John Hall Warrt. to lay out One Thousand Acres of Land for Richard Ewen at Parson's Neck upon Kent County or in any part of that or Anne Arundel County rct by Michas next.

The origin of the Ewen family is not known with any certainty. One Richard Ewen immigrated to Virginia where he received 150 acres of land in the Upper County of New Norfolk "Due for his personal adventure & transportation of two persons: Nicholas Ewen and Christopher Roades." A possible clue to Richards Ewen's origins prior to coming to Virginia is to be found in the naming of his 600 acre grant of land on the Chesapeake Bay near the Severn River on November 26, 1652, which he called "Scotland."

Richard Ewen was active in the affairs of Maryland for about ten years. ...during 4 years nearly, he served as a member of the board of commissioners which (after Gov. Stone's submission) controlled the affairs of the Colony; at nearly every General Assembly he was one of the representatives of his county, and twice (or oftener) was speaker of the house of Burgesses: he was sheriff of the county,1664 and 1665;his duties as an officer of the militia, during about five years, were at times so exacting that he was obliged to decline (after the restoration of Lord Baltimore's government in 1658) the position of a commisioner of Anne Arundel Co.He was, perhaps, a member of the Governor's council at the time of his death.

2. Sophia Ewell SCARBOROUGH * was born in 1613 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. She lived in Plantation Ewengton, Maryland. She died in Annapolis, Anne Arundel, Maryland. She was a 6th g grandmother to Althea Current. She a 2nd great grandmother of Charles F. Carroll of Carrollton Manor. She was a 2nd great grandmother to Margaret Richardson.

Sophia Ewell SCARBOROUGH * and Maj. Richard EWEN * were married about 1625 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. Maj. Richard EWEN * (son of John EWEN and Ann (EWEN)) was born about 1605 in England. He died on 16 Apr 1669 in Annapolis, Anne Arundel, Maryland. He was a 6th g grandfather to Althea Current.

Ida Shirk states in her book "Descendants of Richard and Elizabeth (Ewen) Talbott of West River, Anne Arundel County, Maryland", that the Ewen family settled in Maryland in 1649 and is shown by a land warrant recorded in a book A. B. & H., page 40, Land Office , Annapolis, that on the 17th of May 1650 Major Richard Ewen demanded one thousand acres of land for transporting himself and nine person into this province....He then names these 9 people.

It is not known from where the Ewen's emigrated. There were Ewen's in Scotland and parts of England, and Ewen's were among the earliest settlers of Virginia.

No record of Major Richard Ewen's will, or inventory or administration of his estate has been found. His ten years in Maryland were active and eventful years. During four years he served as a member of the board of commissioners which controlled the affairs of the Colony; at nearly every General Assembly he was one of the representatives of his county, and twice or oftener was speaker of the House of Burgesses: he was sheriff of the county, 1664 and 1665; his duties as an officer of the militia during about five years were at times so exacting that he was obliged to decline the position of a commissioner of Anne Arundel Co. He was survived by a widow and children, the last being Elizabeth, the only one born in Maryland.

          i.  John Ewen (born before 1630 in <England> - died in 1669 in <Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States)>)

3329      ii.  Elizabeth E. Ewen (born on 6 Jun 1630 in <Accomack, Virginia, (United States) or England> - died on 1 Jan 1704 in "Poplar Knowle", West River, Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States))

        iii.  Richard Ewen of Ewenton (born in 1640 in <Upper New Norfolk, Virginia, (United States)> - died in 1675 in <Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States)>)

         iv.  Susanna Ewen (born in 1641 in <Upper New Norfolk, Virginia, (United States)> - died about Jan 1664 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States))

          v.  Anne Ewen (born in 1645 in <Upper New Norfolk, Virginia, (United States)>)

         vi.  Sophia Ewen (born in 1649 in <Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States)> - died in 1674)




6659. Sophia Scarborough 400 402 403 was born about 1613 in <England> and died before 1685 in Maryland, (United States). Other names for Sophia were Sophia Ewell Scarborough and400 Suffa Scarborough.

Birth Notes: Some sources say she was born in Maryland, but it is more likely that she was born in England, possibly also married there. Anne Arundel County was not founded until around 1649/1650.

Research Notes: A small handful of sources show Sophia Scarborough's father as Mathias or Mathew Scarborough. As I have been unable to find corroborating evidence, this name does not appear in my genealogy. A generation later, there was a Mathias Scarborough who was prominent in Maryland and well documented, but unrelated as far as I can determine.

The reliability of the following is also in question since Anne Arundel County was not founded until the mid-17th century.

From http://thecityobserver.org/scarborough/b27402.htm#P27402 :

2. Sophia Ewell SCARBOROUGH * was born in 1613 in Anne Arundel, Maryland. She lived in Plantation Ewengton, Maryland. She died in Annapolis, Anne Arundel, Maryland. She was a 6th g grandmother to Althea Current. She a 2nd great grandmother of Charles F. Carroll of Carrollton Manor. She was a 2nd great grandmother to Margaret Richardson.

Sophia next married Colonel William Burgess 444 445 446 between 1658 and 1660 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States). William was born about 1622 in Marlborough, Wiltshire, England, died on 24 Jan 1686 in Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States) about age 64, and was buried in "Mt. Stewart", Anne Arundel, Maryland, (United States).

Burial Notes: From Historic Graves of Maryland, p. 12:
The inscription on Colonel Burgess' tomb is:

His loving wife Ursulah hid Execut. in testimony of her true responce and due regard to the worthy desserts of her dear departed husband,m hath erected this memorial.

Research Notes: 2nd husband of Sophia Scarborough Ewen.

From Historic Graves of Maryland, p. 11:
"Another interesting cluster of graves is to be found on a farm belonging to the late General Steuart. It retains the name of Mt. Stewart, differently spelled, being after that of a former owner, Anthony Stewart, whom we shall have occasion to mention later. Here remain in a fairly good state of preservation the Burgess tombs. Col. William Burgess, who lived here in the seventeenth century, took an active part in the life of the period, holding among other offices, that of councillor, and having also served as deputy governor and as general of the military forces of the Province.

"As he married three times, he left a number of descendants, some of whom are interested in having these tombs removed from the field where heretofore they have been carefully protected to the more certain shelter of St. Anne's at Annapolis. Colonel Burgess married, first, Miss Elizabeth Robins, daughter of Edward Robins of Accomac county, Va., secondly, Mrs. Sophia Ewen, widow of Maj. Richard Ewen of Anne Arundel county, who left children, and, thirdly, Ursula, who survived him and becamse the wife of Mordacai Moore. Madame Ursula Moore died December 12, 1700, and was buried by the side of her first husband.

"Among the old Maryland wills, two testators mention the children of Col. William Burgesss: George Puddington makes George, William, Susanna and Edward legatees, while Nicholas Painter leaves property to Charles, William, Benjamin, Joseph, Elizabeth and Anne."

From http://www.pa-roots.org/data/read.php?1108,410563,410563 :

He died January 24, 1686, aged sixty-four years, and willed several thousand acres of land; among the tracts were, 'Betty's Choice,' 'Morley's Lott,' 'Bednall's Green,' 'Benjamin's Choice,' 'Benjamin's Addition,' 'West Puddington' 'Beard's Habitation,' 'Bessington,' and 'Burgess Choice,' 'and 1800 acres on one part whereof is a Town appointed called London,' and his message land to five of his seven sons, as sons, Edward and George, had been provided for before his will. His wife, Ursula, received the rest of his estate here and in England. His four daughters received money, plate and other personals. His seal-ring of gold was willed to his daughter, Susannah, wife of Major Nicholas Sewall, who was the daughter of Colonel Burgess, by his wife, the former Mrs. Richard Ewen. Colonel Burgess was of Wilts, England, coming in 1650 to South River, and had reached Virginia previously. Colonel Burgess bore arms, as the existing impression of his seal reveals, of a family of Truro, in Cornwall, but was akin to the Burgesses of Marlborough, Wilts County. His son Captain Burgess' wife, Sarah, was the daughter of Colonel Samuel and Ann (Ayres) Chew, the Quakeress, only daughter and heiress of William Ayres, of Nansemond County, Virginia, mentioned there in 1635.

COLONEL WILLIAM BURGESS (1622-1686), settled first in Northampton County, Va., but followed Governor William Stone to Maryland, and settled on South River, bringing there a company of one hundred and fifty "adventurers." In 1661, he was in command of the South River Rangers; in 1664, he was High Sheriff of Anne Arundel County, and in 1665 he was Commander-in-chief of all the forces of the five western shore counties. He was a member of the Council of the State of Maryland, a Justice of the Provincial Court, and a Deputy-Governor from 1678 to 1683.2 He married Elizabeth, the daughter of Edward Robins, who was born in England 1602, and came to Virginia 1615, in the bark Thomas; he lived in Northampton and Accomac Counties, and built "Newport House," now Eyreville.

EDWARD BURGESS (1651-1703), went to Maryland with his father, Colonel William, and was a Justice of the Provincial Court of Anne Arundel County, and one of the Quorum 1685; also "Captain of the Foote." He married Sarah, the daughter of Samuel and Anne (Ayres) Chew. Their daughter, Sarah, married Benjamin Gaither.

Historic Graves of Maryland and the District of Columbia By Helen West Ridgely, National Society of the Colonial Dames of America;

On the other side of Annapolis, across the Severn river and on the road to "Whitehall," lies "Bellefield," ... Another interesting cluster of graves is to be found on a farm belonging to the late General Steuart. It retains the name of Mt. Stewart, differently spelled, being after that of a former owner, Anthony Stewart, whom we shall have occasion to mention later. Here remain in a fairly good state of preservation the Burgess tombs. Col. William Burgess, who lived here in the seventeenth century, took an active part in the life of the period, holding among other offices, that of councillor, and having also served as deputy governor and as general of the military forces of the Province. As he married three times, he left a number of descendants, some of whom are interested in having these tombs removed from the field where heretofore they have been carefully protected to the more certain shelter of St. Anne's at Annapolis. Colonel Burgess married, first, Miss Elizabeth Robins, daughter of Edward Robins of Accomac county, Va., secondly, Mrs. Sophia Ewen, widow of Maj. Richard Ewen of Anne Arundel county, who left children, and, thirdly, Ursula, who survived him and became the wife of Mordacai Moore. Madame Ursula Moore died December 12, 1700, and was buried by the side of her first husband. Among the old Maryland wills, two testators mention the children of Col. William Burgess: George Puddington makes George, William, Susanna and Edward legatees, while Nicholas Painter leaves property to Charles, William, Benjamin, Joseph, Elizabeth and Anne.
Susanna is also mentioned by Susan Billingsly in her will made December 7, 1663. As this lady, the widow of James Billingsly, alludes also to her brothers Richard and John
Ewen, the sequence of names would lead one to suppose that family loyalty had gone so far as to cause the widow Ewen to name her daughter by her Burgess marriage after her
first husband's sister. The inscription on Colonel Burgess' tomb is :
Here lyeth ye body of Wm. Burgess Esq who departed this life on ye
24 day of Janu Anno Domini 1686 Aged about 64 yrs. Leaving his dear beloved wife Ursuhla & Eleven children viz: seven sons and four daughters and 8 grandchildren. In his life time he was a member of His Lordships Counsel of Estate, One of his Lordships deputy Governours a Justice of ye High Provincial Court Collon of a Regiment of the trained Guards and sometime Generall of all the Military forces of this Province. His loving wife Ursulah his Execut. in testimony of her true respect and due regard to the worthy deserts of her dear departed husband, hath erected this Memorial.
On the tombs of his son, William, and his daughter, Anne,
are the following inscriptions :
Here lyeth the Body of William Burgess the eldest son that coll. William Burgess had by his Dear and Loveing wife Ursella, he departed this life the 28th Day of June in the . . . year of his age, Anno Domini 1698.
Here lyeth Interred ye Body of Anne the wife of Thomas Sparrow daughter of William Burgess and Ursulla his wife, who was born on Thursday the 7th of Oct. 1680 Married on Tuesday ye 8th June 1697 Sickened the 25th day of ye same month and dyed on Sunday ye 25 of July 1697. This stone is erected as a Lasting Memorial of the person above Mentioned, by her surviving husband Mr. Thomas Sparrow.

6672. Edward Darcy "the Colonist",,355 358 361 411 412 413 414 415 son of Edward Darcy [uncertain] was born about 1615 in <Hockley, Middlesex, England>, was christened in 1619 in <England>,449 died before Nov 1670 in <Maryland>, (United States), and was buried in Virginia, (United States). Other names for Edward were Edward D'Arcy and Edward Dorsey.

Birth Notes: Some sources have b. abt 1619

Christening Notes: Some source has him christened in 1619 in Queen Caroline Parish-Elk Ridge, Anne Arundel, but this is unlikely for two reasons:
1) He was not yet in North America in 1619
2) Queen Caroline Parish did not exist until 1728

Death Notes: Supposed to have drowned with several other people in a shipwreck off the Isle of Kent in the Chesapeake Bay on 2 August 1659. However, some researchers have argued that either a different Edward Darcy drowned or this Edward survived the shipwreck, as land transactions and other documents seem to indicate that he was living until at least 1667, but was deceased in November 1670.

From http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~rawl/corneliuslloyd.html:
He [Edward Dorsey] died on 2 Aug 1659 in Chesapeake Bay. Edward Dorsey drowned in Chesapeake Bay, off the Isle of Kent, Maryland.

A petition in the Court records from Prov. Ct. Rec. S.I. f.282 the following: "At a Court holden in Anarundel County on Tuesday August 2nd, 1659: Whereas Thomas Hinson hath petitioned this Court, Showing the hee having taken up the Boate wherein Edward Doarcy and some others drowned, near the Isle of Kent, being desyred by the said Darcy's Overseer to take up the same, which he did, delivering the same Boate to the chiefe in Authority taking a discharge upon the Anarundell and now by his Petition craving for his paynes taken therein, as the Court now sitting shall adjudge him. It is ordered that the said Thomas Hinson have one hundred pounds of Tobacco payd him for the said paynes and Care, by those (Whoever they be) that possesse and enjoy the sd Boate."

Research Notes: The pedigree of Edward Darcy, the colonist, is uncertain. Recent DNA evidence points to an Irish, rather than Norman, heritage. The ancestors given here are those found in "traditional" sources, prior to any DNA research.

-----------

From Genealogical and Memorial Encyclopedia of the State of Maryland, pp. 610-611:

"The name Dorsey, was pronounced as if spelt 'Dossy,' and in fact it appears, at times, so recorded. It was also written 'Darcy,' from which circumstance a French origin has been claimed for the family; but there is evidence to indicate that the Maryland Dorseys had been located for a time, at least, in Ireland, prior to their arrival in America. That the family bore arms is proved by the seal to the original will (dated January 7, 1742), of Caleb Dorsey, of Anne Arundel county, which displays: 'on a fess between three wolf heads, a lion passant, guardant.'

"Edward Dorsey, also called 'Edward Darcy, Gentleman,' received in 1650 a warrant for two hundred acres of land in Anne Arundel county, Maryland, and a grant was issued to him on February 23, 1651, for two hundred acres additional... Edward Dorsey died prior to 1681, for on December 6th of that year, Edward Dorsey of Anne Arundel county, Gent., son of Edward Dorsey, late of said county, deceased, conveys his interest in 'Hockley-in-the-Hole' to his brother John Dorsey..."

"Descendants of Edward DORSEY,
boatwright of Lower Norfolk Co. VA and Anne Arundel Co., MD

"Edward Dorsey was among the first settlers of Anne Arundel Co. in 1649, coming from Lower Norfolk Co.,VA with other Puritans and Independents. His ancestry has been the subject of much debate over the last 80 years. Some of this debate can be read in the 1997 issues of the Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin. There are several genealogies on the family of Edward Dorsey. Among these are The Dorsey Family by Dorsey, Dorsey & Ball; Anne Arundel Gentry (first Edition), by Harry C. Newman, Anne Arundel Gentry Volume 2 by Harry C. Newman. Information on the family is also in The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties Maryland by J. D. Warfield (1905). I also believe there is a book about the Georgia desendants of Edward Dorsey. A couple of articles on Edward Dorsey's family have also appeared over the years in the Maryland Historical Magazine. There have also been some Dorsey newsletters including Dorsey Dreams which was published by Mrs. Lois Colette Bennington, and The Dorsey Project that was published quarterly by Mr. Donavon Dorsey of Benton City, Wash. I would recommend that people interested in this family to obtain copies of the above listed books for much in-depth material on the families.>/P>

"While, there is much controversy over the ancestry of Edward Dorsey, recent DNA testing seems to rule out claimed relations to the family of Thomas, Lord D-Arcy. However there are a few facts that should be considered with the history of the time and places. Edward Dorsey was in Lower Norfolk Co VA by 1642, when Cornelius Lloyd claimed land for transporting him to the colony. (The 1642 date is the claim for head rights to receive land for transporation of persons into Virginia, and not necessarily the date the person arrived in Virginia.) Edward Dorsey bought 200 acres in Elizabeth River Parish; in 1642 he bought cattle there (3 head of cattle from John Browne of the Elizabeth River District of Lower Norfolk Co., In the Cort Records B book of Lower Norfolk Co.; 15 April 1648: Henry Nichxxx appointed constable for the head of Eastern Branch beginning at Edward DORSEYS and so Upwards on both sides of said River including Richard Woodman's Plantation. On 20 Oct 1649 Robert Taylor sold Edward DORSEY 200 acres. This land is described by a deed dated 19 October 1647 recorded 31 Oct 1649: William Julian selling 200 acres of land to Robert Taylor of Elizabeth River, Planter, which is part of a patent of 500 Acres as being a Neck of land upon the south turning of ye Said River, East upon a creeke and South upon upon a creek north into ye woods as is bounded in the patent bearing date 22 July 1634, witnesss: Abraham Weekes and William Hancock. He witnessed by Edward E.D Dorsey. quit-claim deed Oct 1649 to Virginia land executed by Thomas Tod (Todd). This deed he signed Edward E D Dorsey

"Edward Darcy granted in November 1650 a warrant for 200 acres of land. & another 200 acres in 1651, half of a warrant for 400 acres he shared with John Norwood (Patents 11/folio 98)

"A little history of Virginia shows that Cornelius Lloyd and his brother Edward Lloyd were involved with Richard Bennet who was a puritan and advocate of the independent church, and endevored to establish a purtian settlement on the south shore of the James River in the late 1630s and early 1640s. It was among these Puritans or memeber of the Independent church with which Edward Dorsey associated. Given that we find Edward buying cattle in 1642, it is doubtful if he was an indentured servant. Rather, I suspect he was among young men and families (including college graduates) that were recruited for the Puritan settlement on the south shore of the James River. At this time England was in the early stages of the English Civil War, with King Charles I taking a hardline stance against the Indendent/Putitan and other sects that were not outside the Church of England.

"The provinical court records tell us of Edward Dorsey's death. 'Att a Court hoden in Anarundel County on tuesday August 2nd 1659: Whereas Thomas Hinson hath petitioned this Court, Showing that hee hauing taken up the Boate wherein Edward Doarcy & some others drowned, neare the Isle of Kent, being desyred by the sd Darcys overseer to take up the same, wch he did, delivering the same Boate to the chiefe in Authority taking a discharge upon the Anarundell & now by his Petn craving for his paynes taking therein, as the Court now sitting shall adjudege him. It is ordered that the sd. Thomas Hinson have one hundd pounds of Tob. payd him for the sd paynes and Care, by those (Whoever they bee) that possesse & enjoy the sd Boate.'

"In addition to the information on this site, I know of several people who have created their own web sites with Dorsey Genealogical Information. On the Internet there is a Dorsey Genealogy mailing list at rootsweb.com. The information on this website has been extensively updated in Feb 2009 . It presents material on 8 generations of Dorsey descendants including data from church records, census, graveyards, marriage licenses, and genealogies. The data is not complete. There are Dorseys that seem to belong to this family that have not been connected to Edward Dorsey's lineage. It is also noted that there is another early Dorsey family in Maryland which settled mostly in Calvert Co. and the Eastern Shore, at times this family used the spelling of Dossey as well as Dorsey. This family's progenitors were James, Ralph, and John D-arcy or Dorsey, kinsmen of Richard Preston of the Clifts in Calvert Co. MD. "

From Side-Lights on Maryland History, Vol. 2, pp. 87-91:

"Dorseys of Hockley

"Of all the distinguished officials whose presence with their families and retainers lent luster to the ancient capital [of Baltimore], none are more indelibly impressed upon the history of the Province than the early Dorsey brothers, sons of Edward Darcy who received his first warrant for land from the Lord Proprietary in the year 1650.

"In that year Edward Darcy, the original progenitor of the Hockley branch of the Dorseys of Maryland, received another grant for land adjoining his original warrant, the latter patented in connection with Captain John Norwood.

"These lands were in the year 1667 assigned to George Yate, Edward Darcy having in 1661 been granted a valuable estate in that part of St. Mary's County which in 1663 became a part of the newly erected County of Calvert. This was Teobush Manning patented to Edward Darcy and Thomas Manning, as shown in the Land Warrants, but incorrectly entered in Lord Baltimore's Rent Rolls for Calvert County, as belonging to 'Edward Darby.'

"Hockley-in-the-Hole, originally taken up by Edward Darcy, was in 1664 patented to his sons Edward, Joshua and John, the original patent bearing date August 20, 1664, being still in the possession of the present owner of Hockley, Miss Anne Elizabeth Dorsey, lineal descendant of all three of the original patentees. In the year 1681 'Edward Dorsey, Gent. of Ann Arundell County, Son and heir of Edward Dorsey late of said County deceased' assigned his right to his brother John. The parchment document granting Hockley to the three Dorsey brothers bears the autograph of Charles, third Lord Baltimore, and was given under the Great Seal of the Province."

From The Founders of Anne Arundel and Howard Counties, Maryland, p. 30:

"South-side Severn settlements were increased in 1662. Matthew Howard, who had come up from Lower Norfolk, Virginia, in 1650, with his neighbor and relative, Edward Lloyd, had died before 1659, but his five sons now came. They were Captain Cornelius Howard, of 'Howard's Heirship and Chance'; Samuel Howard, of 'Howard's Hope'; John Howard, of 'Howard's Interest'' all adjoining near Round Bay. Philip and Matthew were on North Severn. In 1664, the three sons of Edward Dorsey, the immigrant of 1650--relatives of the Howards--took up and patented their father's survey of 'Hockley-in-the-Hole.' They were Colonel Edward Dorsey, Joshua and Hon. John Dorsey, prominent leaders in political movements and representatives in legislative measures."

Ibid., pp. 55-56:

"In the Land Office of Annapolis, may be seen the following warrant, which explains itself:

"'Warrant MDCL, granted to Edward Dorsey, of Anne Arundel Co., for 200 acres of land, which he assigns as followeth; as also 200 acres more, part of a warrant for 400 acres, granted John Norwood and the said Dorsey, dated XXIII of Feb., MDCLI. Know all men by these presents that I, Edward Dorsey, of the County of Anne Arundel, boatwright, have granted, bargained and sold, for a valuable consideration, already received, all my right, title, interest of and in a warrant for 200 acres, bearing date 1650, and also 200 acres more, being half of a warrant of 400 acres--the one half belonging to Captain Norwood, bearing date, 1651, both of which assigned to George Yate.--Edward Dorsey, Sealed.'

"Signed in the presence of Cornelius Howard, John Howard, Oct. 22nd, MDCLXVII, (1667).

"That same year the same Edward Dorsey assigned to Cornelius Howard, his right for land for transporting seven persons into the province. Edward Dorsey and Thomas Manning held a certificate from Thomas Marsh, for 600 acres adjoining Captain Norwood. 'Norwood's Fancy,' held by Captain Norwood, was near Round Bay. 'Dorsey,' held by Edward Dorsey, gave the name to 'Dorsey's Creek,' upon which was located Thomas Gates, whose will of 1659, reads: 'I give to Michael Bellott and John Holloway my plantation. I desire that they give to Edward Dorsey's children free outlet to the woods and spring as formally I have given them.'"

"The following record is taken from 'Our Early Settlers.'--A list of our early arrivels up to 1680.

"'Robert Bullen demands lands for bringing over a number of passengers, amongst whom was Edward Dorsey, in 1661.'

"The same record adds, 'Aug. 25th, 1664, patented to him, John and Joshua Dorsey, a plantation called "Hockley-in-the-Hole," four hundred acres.'

"In 1683, this land was resurveyed for John Dorsey, and found to contain 843 acres. 400 acres first surveyed being old rents remaining new, whole now in the possession of Caleb Dorsey.

"Such is the record of 'Hockley' upon our Rent Rolls, at Annapolis."

36. Edward DORSEY24 was born before 1620 in England.20 He is believed to have been the son of Thomas D'Arcy. He immigrated in 1642 to State of Virginia.25 Edward Darcy/Dorsey lived several years in Virginia. On December 15, 1642, Cornelius Lloyd received a grant of land for bringing 60 persons into the colony of Virginia. Among those named was Edw: _orsey, the first letter of the last name is obliterated. (Minute Book, f 160) (New Eng Hist Gen Vol 47, f 63). On October 7, 1646, Thomas Brown was given 240 acres in Lower Norfolk County due by assignment of the right of 5 persons transported by Cornelius Lloyd, among them Edward Dorsey. (Patents 2, State of Virginia f. 113). He died on Aug 2 1659 in Chesapeake Bay.20 Edward Dorsey drowned in Chesapeake Bay, off the Isle of Kent, Maryland. A petition in the Court records from Prov. Ct. Rec. S.I. f.282 the following: "At a Court holden in Anarundel County on Tuesday August 2nd, 1659: Whereas Thomas Hinson hath petitioned this Court, Showing the hee having taken up the Boate wherein Edward Doarcy and some others drowned, near the Isle of Kent, being desyred by the said Darcy's Overseer to take up the same, which he did, delivering the same Boate to the chiefe in Authority taking a discharge upon the Anarundell and now by his Petition craving for his paynes taken therein, as the Court now sitting shall adjudge him. It is ordered that the said Thomas Hinson have one hundred pounds of Tobacco payd him for the said paynes and Care, by those (Whoever they be) that possesse and enjoy the sd Boate." Edward Dorsey, the immigrant, was gentleman and settler, first in Virginia and later in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. At a County Court held on November 3, 1645, at the home of William Shipp, it was recorded tat John Browne of Elizabeth River in the County of Lower Norfolk, VA, planter, had on the 11th of February, 1642 sold unto Edward Darsey of the county aforesaid, planter, three head of Cattle (Vixt) one Cowe aged about seaven yeares of a brinded coulor and marked with a cropp on the right eare and the left eare whole, and a steare of a color as aforesaid aged about one yeare and a halfe and marked with a cropp on the left eare and the right eare slitt allsoe, one heifar calfe brinded as aforesaid aged about three quarters of a yeare and marked with a cropp on both eares and a slitt in one and doe by these presents give graunt, bargaine and sell unto the said Edward Darsey his heirs and ecut(rs) administrator and assignes for ever for a valuable consideration pt in hand paid. Dated the 11th of February, 1642. (Minute Book A.f. 293, Lower Norfolk Co., Portsmouth, VA.) By 1650 Edward Darcy was in Anne Arundel County, Maryland where he was granted a warrent for 200 acres of land and another 200 acres in 1651, half warrent for 400 acres he purchased in partnership with John Norwood. (Patents 11; folio 98). In April 1657 Edward Darcy, (he refers to himself in this document as a "boatwright of Anne Arundel County"), sold to George Yate 200 acres granted to him in November of 1650 and half a warrent of 40 acres granted to himself and Capt. Norwood in February, 1651. In August 1668, Yates re-assigned to Edward Dorsey (son of Edward) 68 acres of above tract and later in the year assigned 60 additional acres called "Darsy." Edward bought 300 acres of land in 1655 from Thomas Marsh or March. By 1658 Edward Dorsey had land in the Province of Maryland. On February 27, 1658, Ensign Thomas Gates, who transported himself into the Province in 1649 was granted a parcell of land called "Gatenby" lying on the west side of the Chesapeake Bay, on the south side of the Severn River and north side of Darcy's Creek. In the will of Thomas Gates made May 2, 1659 he indicates that the Dorsey family was living on a nearby tract of land and desired and willed that his heirs "shall give to Edward Darcey's children a free outlet to the woods and also to the spring an inlet for their cattle as formerly they had in my time (Wills 1, f.105). Due to failure to obtain patents, carelessness of clerks and fire which destoyed early records at Annapolis, it has become virtually impossible to locate the land of Edward Darcy/Dorsey. (Arch of Md, 111, f 250) Descriptions of surveys which were recorded after the fire of 1706, however, show that Thomas Todd was located on the south side of the Severn River between Todd's Creek (later Spa Creek) and Deep Cove Creek which was known as Darcy's Creek in the 1658 surveys. The name of the creek was later changed to Sprigg's Creek, then to Graveyard Creek and finally to College Creek. Information regarding the names of these creeks was furnished by Mr. Trader of the Land Commissioner's Office, Annapolis, Md. To the west and north across Darcy's Creek, which no doubt bears the name of the immigrant, were the tracts taken up by Edward Dorsey and Capt. John Norwood, with the land of Nicholas Wyatt lying between them. Farther up the Severn River near Marshes Creek, later called Hockley Creek, was the land taken up by Matthew Howard. Adjoining this land on the south was the tract called "Wyatt", laid out for Nicholas Wyatt. Nearby was Hockley-in-ye-Hole, taken up by Edward Dorsey and later patented by his three sons, Edward, Joshua, and John Dorsey. The date of the original grant for "Hockley" in ye Hole" (Hole being Old English for Valley) was 1664 and wassigned and sealed by Charles, third Lord Baltimore. That grant was in possession of a descendant having been handed down with the land to the eighth generation. He was married to Ann ---- before 1648.20,26 In 1658 the Quakers came into Maryland spreading their religion among the settlers, claiming as converts, Nicholas Wyatt, Edward Dorsey and Ann, his wife and many others. A letter written by Robert Clarkson, a Quaker convert, to Elizabeth Harris, then in England shows that the Dorseys did embrace the faith. He writes that Ann Dorsey had abundant grace, but he seemed doubtful that her husband would stick to the faith. (MD Hist Mag XXXII, 47). "Quakers in the Founding of Anne Arundel County, Maryland" states that, "Ann and Edward Dorsey, mentioned by Clarkson as 'convinced Quakers' were founders of the Dorsey family of Maryland. Their sons were Edward, Joshua, and John. Edward Dorsey's land, 'Dorsey' was on Dorsey, now College, Creek. He surveyed 'Hockley in Ye Hole,' which was granted to his three sons on January 27, 1663 (Patents, Liber 7 f.378) after his death by drowning. (Dorsey Book)" The list of those convinced of the truth of Quakerism includes, "founding settlers and leading citizens of the county, and some were of armorial families. The list constitutes a high tribute to the labors of Elizabeth Harris, Maryland's first Publisher of Truth." There was an apparent attempt to restrict the activities of Friends in the Province of Maryland. Sometime around 1658 Edward Dorsey took up a tract of land containing 400 acres, lying in Anne Arundel County on the south side of the Severn River and or a branch of Broad Creek. This tract was later patented by his three sons. See Patents 7, f.378.

From http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~paxson/southern/dorsey.html:

"Most of the older Dorsey genealogies assume that our immigrant Edward is descended from the Norman D'Arcy family. I must confess to jumping on that bandwagon myself. But new genetic research tosses this out the window. A Dorsey family DNA project that started in 2002 has resulted in an excellent web page <http://www.contexo.info/DorseyDNA/LineageI.htm> that points strongly to an Irish branch of the family that has had no "paper trail" documenting a link to our Maryland emigrant, Edward Dorsey. The Irish cousins date from the nineteenth century, so there must be an older common ancestor from the early seventeenth century, or still farther back. The Anglo-Norman D'Arcy/Dorsey men who have participated in a DNA project are clearly of a quite different genetic stock from Edward and the Irish cousins. My thanks to Rick Saunders, who brought this to my attention. As he explains, "If you go to the Results page <http://www.contexo.info/DorseyDNA/Results800.htm> you can compare the lines of Edward DORSEY, and the French-Norman DARCY line more readily. Not only are the results not close, but their haplotypes (R1b and E3b) are different."[1]

"Of the seven references in sixteenth and seventeenth century British records to Edward Dorsey (with nearly as many spellings), the only one that is at all likely to be our ancestor is No. 16 in the Exchequer Record of the King's Remembrancer: "Edward Darcie -- lycensed April 18th 1632, aged thirteen, to go with his master Richard Gips to Berghen." Translated, this means the young teenager had permission to leave England with Richard Gips, or GIBBS, either as an apprentice, servant, or ward, probably to Bergen op Zoom in the Netherlands. It was easier to get a license to go to Europe than to the new world. It would be relatively easy to travel from the Netherlands to Virginia, perhaps by way of Barbados.[2] However, there is as yet no proof that this is our man. I am unaware of any research of Irish records of the period, looking for an Edward Dorsey.

"One way or another, Edward Dorsey1 managed to emigrate from the British Isles (exactly where, Ireland or England, is unclear) to Virginia. Perhaps he came via by a circuitous route through The Netherlands, or more possibly, he was transported by Cornelius LLOYD (see below). So far I have found no record of when he married his wife, Ann. A common assumption is that she was Ann BACHE, since Ann Do?y was mentioned in the 1662 will of her brother Humphrey Bache, a Londoner who became a Quaker. Humphrey's daughter Elizabeth married William HARRIS in 1649 in St. Mary's Abchurch.[3] Elizabeth Harris became a well-travelled and well-known Friends minister. However, a direct descendant named Edward Dorsey has examined the probate record of Humphrey Bache. He concludes: "The reference to his sister Anne lists her last name as Do?y where the "?" could be a "u" or "n" (quill pens were not reliable) -- but, comparing the letter to others in the document, I can't see how it could be much else."[3a] While misspellings and mis-translations were not uncommon in probate records it seems a bit of stretch to get Dorsey from Douy or Dony.

"In May 1638 another pair of our ancestors, Matthew HOWARD <../southern/howard.html> and his wife Ann, were granted land in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, on the western branch of the Elizabeth River, south of Broad Creek. In the immediate vacinity were grants to Robert TAYLOR, Edward LLOYD, Richard OWEN, and Cornelius LLOYD. The year before, Matthew Howard had with him "two persons unnamed", one of whom might have been 17- or 18-year old Edward Dorsey. Although a male could own land at the age of 16, obviously Edward did not. In fact, throughout his life he seemed to be curiously careless about registering his land. This may have been because an oath was required, and he may have early felt a scruple against swearing that would eventually find full fruition in the Quaker testimony. It is suggested that young Edward was in Virginia by 1636, or even as early as 1635, and he stayed near Richard Owen and John Howard.[4] For three generations these families stayed together and intermarried.

"There is a 1642 contract for Edward's purchase of three cattle (a cow, steer, and calf), with descriptions of each animal, indicating that he had some disposable wealth and was not indentured. When the County Court met 15 December 1645, at the house of William SHIPP, it ordered Thomas TOD to pay Edward "Darcy" and Thomas HALL forty pounds of tobacco apiece "for theire tyme and charge in attendance of the Court for two days." On 10 December 1649 Edward witnessed a quit-claim deed executed by Thomas Tod; his signature reads "E D: Dorsy".[5]

"References to Edward Dorsey, with a variety of spellings, are found in the land records of Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, between 1642 and 1648. On 7 October 1646 Thomas BROWN was given 240 acres in Lower Norfolk County due by assignment of the rights of five persons transported by Cornelius LLOYD, including Edward Dorsey. On 15 December 1642 Cornelius Lloyd received a grant of land for bringing sixty people to the colony, including "Edw:_orsey" -- the first letter is illegible. Edward bought 200 acres in Lower Norfolk County on "a neck of land upon the south turning" of the Elizabeth River. The boundaries were further delimited: going "east upon a creek, and south upon a creek, and north into the woods". Dorsey's tract was on the point of land at the foot of present day Chestnut Street, and on it in the 1930s were the ruins of an old Marine Hospital. The land lies on Ferry Point and was once offered to the fledgling United States as a site for its capital. Dorsey styled himself a "boatwright" (i.e. involved in naval stores, perhaps, rather than actually building ships) and was probably in business with and for his near neighbor, Thomas TOD.[6]

"Apparently a number of settlers in Lower Norfolk County were not members of the established church, but were a variety of dissenters or nonconformists; some were Puritans. A ten-year controversy had raged between Governor BERKELEY and the more vocal Puritans that was both political and religious. When a few Roman Catholics immigrated into the colony in 1642 Berkeley saw his chance. The colony decreed that no "popish recusants" could hold any office. It also decreed that anyone holding office and refusing to take the "oath of allegiance and supremacy" should be dismissed from office and fined 1,000 pounds of tobacco. The following year it was enacted that all ministers must be conformed to the Church of England, and any nonconformists should be compelled to leave the colony.[7]

"Meanwhile farther up the Chesapeake Bay in 1637, Maryland forces had taken over Kent Island, which had originally been an outpost of Virginia. Lord Baltimore gave the settlers full civil and religious rights. In 1648 he specifically invited disgruntled dissenters to move from Virginia to his colony. He appointed the Virginia Protestant, William STONE, (apparently no relation to our William Stone) as his governor. Baltimore patronized the newly settled Protestants, who quickly moved into important political posts in both local and provincial government.[8]


"The lack of freedom of religion in Virginia, coupled with an invitation to move north, led between 400 and 600 settlers to migrate to Maryland, mostly to Anne Arundel and Calvert Counties. The larger group of immigrants, whose religious affiliations are not known, included Edward Dorsey, John NORWOOD <../southern/norwood.html>, Matthew HOWARD <../southern/howard.html>, Thomas TODD, and Nicholas WYATT and their families who settled in and around Annapolis. They had owned land near each other in Lower Norfolk County, Virginia, and soon acquired tracts near each other along the Severn River in Maryland; their children and grandchildren intermarried. However, 15 November 1652 Edward and four others returned to Virginia where Francis FLEETWOOD got a grant of land for their transportation.[9] They soon returned to Maryland.

"In November 1650 Edward Dorsey was granted a warrant for 200 acres in Maryland, and in 1651 for another 200 acres. Lord Baltimore had instituted the English practice of granting and patenting tracts of land under proper names. Acreages named "Norwood", "Howard", "Todd", and "Wyatt" were laid out for other members of the group, with their locations specified in the records. Unfortunately, the location of Dorsey's land was not specified. Before 1655 Edward Dorsey, together with Thomas MANNING bought 600 acre "Theobush Manning" on the west side of Chesapeake Bay, south of Norwood's, north of the Bay. Perhaps because it was incorrectly entered on Lord Baltimore's Rent Rolls as belonging to Edward "Darby", the patent was not issued until 1661. Whenever he acquired it, eventually Edward Dorsey owned land that is now occupied by part of the Naval Academy and Bloomsbury Square in Annapolis.[10]

"In 1655 or 1556 Elizabeth (Bache) HARRIS, a British Friend, came to Maryland and found a receptive audience among the community of dissenters settled along the Severn and Patuxent Rivers, and among the unchurched folks on Kent Island. Many who heard her and worshipped with her were convicted inwardly and convinced of the Truth Friends proclaimed. She was followed in 1657-1658 by Josiah COALE from Bristol, Thomas THURSTON from Gloucestershire, and Thomas CHAPMAN. Among the new Friends in Maryland were Thomas MEARS, Nicholas WYATT, Edward and Ann DORSEY, Robert CLARKSON and his wife, John BALDWIN, Henry CAPLIN, Charles BALYE, Elizabeth BEASLEY, William FULLER, William DURAND, Thomas and William COLE, Henry WOOLCHURCH, and others.[11]

"A letter from Robert CLARKSON, member of the House of Burgesses from Anne Arundel County, to Elizabeth HARRIS, back in England, summarized Elizabeth's work and reported on the condition of local Friends:[12]

'Elizabeth Harris, Dear Heart, I salute thee in the tender love of the Father, which moved thee toward us and I do own thee to have been a minister by the will of God to bear the outward testimony to the inward word of truth in me and others. Of which word of life God hath made my wife a partaker with me and hath established our hearts in His fear, and likewise Ann Dorsey in a more large measure; her husband I hope abides faithful . . .

'We have disposed of the most part of the books which were sent, so that all parts where there are Friends are furnished and every one that desires may have benefit of them; at Herring Creek, Rhoad River, South River, all about Severn, the Brand Neck, and thereabouts the Seven Mountains and Kent. . . . '

"Echoing the political events in England, there had been a coup in Maryland against Lord Baltimore in 1654. But many dissenters, especially in Anne Arundel and Calvert Counties, and on Kent Island, were more loyal to Baltimore than to the new Puritan regime. William FULLER, acting governor after 1654, was convinced upon hearing Elizabeth HARRIS, and became a Friend. By 1658 definitely five, and perhaps as many as eleven of the 24 commissioners had become Quakers. Others had close ties with Friends.[13]

"Then Edward Dorsey was drowned with several other people off the Isle of Kent. On 2 August 1659 the Court paid Thomas HINSON 100 pounds of tobacco for raising the boat in which they had drowned, as desired by Dorsey's overseer. But was this our ancestor? Although the Dorsey family historians assume it was, genealogist Caroline BULKLEY thinks it was some other person with the same name. She discovered a 1667 deed referring to Edward Dorsey, boatwright, a designation never used by his son. Descendant Ed Dorsey, who examined the bill of sale, notes that "the seller declares himself to BE Edward Dorsey but did not use the word 'said' that was typically used when repeating a previous reference (to the purchaser). So we have to conclude that it really was the immigrant OR it was his son (after all they really were both Edward Dorsey). He does not specify that he is heir which he did with later documents. So either the immigrant was the seller OR, more likely, his son impersonated him." Another "curious case was the sale, again by the son, in 1664 of other property owned by his father which he just didn't get around to recording until November of 1670 (six years?). He then calls himself heir of the 'late' Edward Dorsey. So it appears to me that the immigrant was alive in 1667 but had died by November 1670."[13a] More conclusive, perhaps, was a reference by Edward Jr. to land "my father Edward Dorsey [had] from Thomas MARSH in 1661". Edward Jr. stated that his father was living in 1667, but by the time Edward Jr. transferred "Hockley-in-the-Hole" to his brother John in 1681, their father was dead. Edward Dorsey, either father or son, appraised the estate of Thomas TODD 12 May 1677.[14] Thomas was the old companion from Virginia with whom the elder Dorsey had worked on ships.

"The Dorsey family chroniclers found no further records of Ann Dorsey. They assumed she returned to Virginia. I assume she remained in Maryland near her children. Unfortunately the West River Friends minutes do not begin until 1671. Family historian Ed Dorsey thinks she went back to England with the immigrant Edward Dorsey.[15]

(1) Some researchers have attributed a daughter to Edward DORSEY a daughter Ann who married Nicholas GREENBERRY. There is no evidence that Edward DORSEY had a daughter named Ann. While Nicholas GREENBERRY's wife was named Ann, she could not have been a daughter of Edward DORSEY. Nicholas GREENBERRY did not emigrate from England to Maryland until 1674, at which time he arrived with his wife and two children. (Maryland Patent Liber 18 (Vol. 21):160 FHL microfilm 0,013,071.) Land was claimed in 1674 for Nicholas GREENBERRY, wife, and two children (not named) who were on the ship "Constant Friendship." His wife could not have been the daughter of Edward DORSEY, who had been living in the colonies for over 25 years.

From http://genforum.genealogy.com/norwood/messages/1247.html:

April 1667 - Edward Darcy, of the County of Anne Arundell, boatwright, sold to George Yate 200 acres granted to Darcy in Nov 1650 and half a warrant of four hundred acres granted to him and Capt. Norwood in Feb. 1651. In Aug 1668, Yates reassigned to Dorsey 68 acres of above tract and later in the year assigned 60 more acres called "Darsy." Edward bought 300 acres of land in 1655 from Thomas Marsh/March. His son Edward sold this tract Nov 6, 1670 to Thomas Manniage of the Cliffs.

A question arises as to whether the Edward Darcy who signed the paper in 1667 was the Edward Darcy who bought and sold land in the 1650s. Caroline Kemper assumes that it is the same person and that a different, unrelated Edward Dorsey died in a boating accident in 1659. Other historians think that Edward Dorsey one bought and sold the property in the 1650s but that his son signed the papers in the 1670s.

From Maryland Genealogies, "The Identity of Edward Dorsey I," by Caroline Kemper Bulkley, 1938, pp. 398-399:

The record in the Land Office (Liber II, [Margin Liber G G] (98)) reads: '(125) Edward Dorsey assigns to George Yate 400 acres: Warrant XI November M.D.C.L. (1650); to Edward Dorsey for 200 acres of land the which he assigned away as followeth; as also 200 acres more part of a warrant for 400 acres granted John Norwood and Edward Dorsey dated xxiiij February MDCLi (1651); said Dorsey of County of Ann [sic] Arundell, Boatwright, consideration already received, all my right, title, interest, claim and demand of an--in a warrant for 200 acres of land bearing date sixteen hundred and fifty [so written out] and also to 200 acres more being the one half of a warrant for 400 acres, the one half belong to Capt. Norwood bearing date one thousand six hundred fifty one unto George Yate, etc.'"

The date of this assignment, duly signed and sealed, is April 23, 1667, and the witness is John Howard, eldest son of the Virginia Matthew and Ann Howard. A year later (August 24, 1668) there is a deed filed from Yate to Dorsey for sixty-eight acres of the above "Dorsey" tract. In the same year one James Connoway assigned back the "right for 1000 acres" to George Yate, who transfers sixty acres to "Darsy." . . . .

It is contended that the Edward Dorsey who signed the records of 1667-1668 may have been the son Edward. This is highly improbable, since Edward Dorsey the younger could not have had land in his own rights from warrants cited of 1650 and 1651, nor did he ever name himself as "boatwright" in the documents known to bear his signature.

Those who deny that the record quoted was signed by Edward Dorsey, Senior, argue from the story many times repeated that he was drowned in 1659. No evidence has ever been produced to prove this: there is an authentic record of an Edward Dorsey who was drowned, but who the person was, or whether the name may be mistakenly recorded cannot be determined.

It is clear that the signer of the 1667-1668 deeds was the father Edward Dorsey, and as further testimony that he was alive after 1659 is a document assigning land--the Bush-Manning tract-- bought by "My father Edward Dorsey from Thomas Marsh in 1661." This same land is later confirmed to Manning in a warrant and power of attorney to Sheriff Stockett from Colonel Edward Dorsey, the son, giving these facts.

Noted events in his life were:

• Transported: to Virginia by Cornelius Lloyd, Bef 15 Dec 1642. 450

Some researchers have inaccurately listed her as Ann, daughter of Matthew HOWARD. While Matthew HOWARD did have a daughter named Ann, there is record of her husband being James GRENEFFE, who mentions wife Ann, "brother John HOWARD" and "brother Samuel HOWARD" in his will.

"XI. HUMPHREY AP HUGH, of LLwyn du, in the township of Llwyngwrill, parish of Llangelynin, Talybont, Merionethshire, was born circa 1600-1603. He is named as a party to the deed of marriage settlement made at the time of the marriage of his daughter Anne to Ellis Rees, and dated 1 January 1649, wherein he is described as: 'Humffrey ap Hugh of Llwyngwril in the sayd Com. of Merioneth, gentleman.'

From Snowdonia National Park (http://www.eryri-npa.co.uk/page/index.php?nav1=enjoying&nav2=9&nav3=22&lang=eng&view=graphic&contrast=1) :

"In 1645 during the Civil War, Rowland Vaughan, a famous poet and royalist lived in Caer-gai, approximately a mile from this spot. One day, some of the local inhabitants saw Oliver Cromwell's knights on their way to Caer-gai, and in an attempt to stop them they gathered some yew leaves, which is very poisonous to horses, and threw them in the stream knowing that the knights would stop there so the horses could drink. That is exactly what happened and the horses became ill, and since then the stream is known as Nant Gwenwyn Meirch (stream of horses' poison). Despite the effort of the inhabitants, the knights made it to Caer-gai and the mansion was burnt to the ground. A large farmhouse was built in its place which still stands today."

VAUGHAN, ROWLAND (c. 1590-1667), of Caer-gai , Merioneth , poet, translator, and Royalist; the eldest son of John Vaughan and his wife Ellen, daughter of Hugh Nanney of Nannau, Merioneth ; was b. about 1590. He was a descendant (see J. E. Griffith , Pedigrees, 3) of the Vaughan family of Llwydiarth in Montgomeryshire (q.v.) , and it appears that it was his grandfather, of the same name as himself, who was the first of the family to live at Caer-gai (B.M. Harl. MS. 1973). He spent some time at Oxford, although there is no record that he graduated there. He m. Jane, daughter of Edward Price, Tref Prysg, Llanuwchllyn, and according to Hugh Cadwaladr 's elegy (N.L.W. MS. 9), he was survived by three sons and three daughters: JOHN, who matriculated from Hart Hall (now Hertford College), Oxford, in 1635, aged 18, m. Catherine, daughter of William Wynne of Glyn, Merioneth , and became sheriff of Merioneth in 1669-70; EDWARD, who matriculated from All Souls College, Oxford, in 1634, aged 16, graduated B.A. there in 1637/8, and M.A. from Jesus College in 1640, and became vicar of Upchurch, Kent (1642), and Llanynys, Denbs. (1647), and rector of Llangar (1662), Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog (1662), and Mallwyd (1664); WILLIAM; ELLEN; ELSBETH; and MARGARET. Harleian MS. 1973, however, and later sources give the names of his sons as John, Edward, Arthur, and Gabriel, and in addition to the three daughters named above a fourth daughter, Mary, is included, who m. Peter Price, Cynllwyd, fourth son of Thomas Prys (q.v.), Plas Iolyn, Denbs.

In accordance with family tradition Rowland Vaughan played a prominent part in the public life of the county and, like his father, who was sheriff of Merioneth in 1613/4 and 1620/1, he was appointed sheriff in 1642/3. He was a staunch Royalist and it is said that he fought as a captain at the battle of Naseby. Englynion by William Phylip show that he certainly took some active part in the Civil War (Pen. MS. 115) and Caer-gai was burnt down by Cromwell's soldiers on their way from Montgomeryshire in 1645. Vaughan himself was imprisoned at Chester by the Cromwellians in 1650 and his estate given to a kinsman, but after the end of the Civil War and after some years of litigation he recovered his estate and rebuilt Caer-gai.

Many of his englynion and other poems contain references to his political beliefs and to his sufferings at the hand of the Cromwellian party and many of them relate to the topics of the day. He also wrote a number of carols and other poems of a religious nature and translated several hymns from English and Latin into Welsh. The Welsh versions of the hymns in the Book of Common Prayer are generally attributed to him (see Thickens , Emynau a'u Hawduriaid and Llyfr Gweddi Gyffredin, 1664). He also wrote several elegies on the death of eminent Merioneth men. Some of his poems were published in Carolau a Dyriau Duwiol, 1729, Blodeu-Gerdd Cymru, 1759, and other anthologies, and many of them are to be found in contemporary manuscripts, some of them being in his autograph (for an example of his autograph, see illustration between 142 and 143 in N.L.W. Jnl., i).

Rowland Vaughan is better remembered, however, as a translator of religious works, in particular of works supporting the Established Church. The first and most important of these to be published was Yr Ymarfer o Dduwioldeb, a translation which appeared in 1630 of Lewis Bayly (q.v.) , The Practice of Piety. Several later editions of this translation appeared within the following century. This first translation was followed in 1658 by Yr Arfer o Weddi yr Arglwydd (John Despagne), Pregeth yn erbyn Schism (Jasper Mayne), Prifannau Sanctaidd, together with Ymddiffyniad Rhag Pla o Schism (William Brough), and Prifannau Crefydd Gristnogawl, together with Y Llwybraidd-Fodd Byrr (James Ussher). His last published translated work, Evchologia (John Prideaux), appeared in 1660. The translations show not only the meticulous care with which he worked but also his masterly command of an extensive vocabulary and a fluid style of writing. His introductions and dedicatory letters to these works contain numerous allusions to contemporary historical events as well as his own fortunes and family.

Vaughan also translated one other important work, although his translation was never published. Among the Brogyntyn manuscripts deposited in the National Library of Wales some years ago by lord Harlech was found a hitherto unknown portion of Vaughan's translation of Eikon Basilike or The King's Book, together with his dedication addressed to lord Harlech 's ancestor, colonel Sir John Owen (q.v.) ; for this, see N.L.W. Jnl., i, 141-4.

Rowland Vaughan d. 18 Sept. 1667 and the Caer-gai estate passed to his eldest son, John, whose great-granddaughter, Mary Elizabeth (b. 1709), wife of the Rev. Henry Mainwaring, rector of Etwall, sold it, together with Tref Prysg, to Sir Watkin Williams Wynn , about 1740.

The above article on Rowland Vaughan deals with the most notable member of this family and refers to some of his forbears and descendants. The object of the present note is to draw attention to some literary and historical references to the family, and particularly to Rowland Vaughan, in the poems of 'Phylipiaid Ardudwy' (qq.v.) . Rhisiart Phylip , who was 'family bard' at Nannau , near Dolgelley, for a period, wrote an elegy on the death of Annes, daughter of Rhys Fychan, Nannau - she was the wife of Hugh Nanney and grandmother of Rowland Vaughan, who also wrote englynion to her and to his grandfather on the occasion. When Ellen Nanney, Rowland Vaughan's mother, d. in 1617, Rhisiart Phylip wrote an elegy in her memory. Amongst englynion by Rhisiart Phylip is one written in 'reply' to one by Rowland Vaughan; he also wrote two englynion when the news came that Vaughan had received judgement in his favour in respect of Caer-gai in 1637. There are also three englynion by Rhisiart Phylip in 'reply' to three by Vaughan in regard to a poem by the former respecting Rhiwedog, near Bala . Rhisiart Phylip composed two cywyddau gofyn ('request poems') of Caer-gai interest: one to Rowland Vaughan, requesting an exchange of greyhounds, whilst in the other the bard asks John Vaughan to give a greyhound to Lewis Gwyn, Dolau-gwyn , near Towyn. Six englynion praising the translator, and written by Gruffydd Phylip , nephew of Rhisiart Phylip , are printed at the beginning of Yr Ymarfer o Dduwioldeb, 1630, Rowland Vaughan's translation of Lewis Bayly 's well-known work, The Practice of Piety. In the article on 'Phylipiaid Ardudwy' in Cymm., xlii, is quoted the account given by Walter Davies (Gwallter Mechain, q.v.) in the introduction to Eos Ceiriog (1823) of the friendship in the time of the Civil War between Rowland Vaughan and William Phylip , who lived at Hendre Fechan, Ardudwy. When Griffith Vaughan, brother of Rowland Vaughan, d. 1638, William Phylip wrote two elegies upon the occasion. Besides others which he wrote are two referring to the burning of Caer-gai and Ynysmaengwyn in 1645. Later, John Vaughan, the heir of Caer-gai (the son of Rowland Vaughan), wrote a 'cywydd yr adar,' to which William Phylip replied (in Cardiff MS. 64).

Research Notes: From A History of the County of York North Riding: Volume 1 (British History Online):

"Thomas de Hornby was the chief tenant [of Hornby Castle, North Riding, Yorkshire] in 1316 (fn. 21) and Robert de Hornby in 1327. (fn. 22) Four years later mills and tenements in Hornby were settled on Robert and his wife Christina and their issue, with contingent remainder to Thomas St. Quintin and his heirs. (fn. 23) In 1332 Christina, widow of Robert, and Thomas St. Quintin were holding jointly. (fn. 24) At her death the manor came into the sole possession of the family of St. Quintin, a younger branch of the St. Quintins of Harpham. (fn. 25)

Thomas was succeeded by his nephew William, who had a son and heir John. (fn. 26) Anthony son of John died at the end of the 14th century, and left a daughter and heir Margaret, whose wardship and marriage belonged to Richard Lord Scrope. (fn. 27) He married Margaret St. Quintin to John Conyers, 'a servant of his own,' (fn. 28) who became the ancestor of the Conyers of Hornby.

He was succeeded by a son and heir Christopher, who purchased more lands in Hornby. (fn. 29) Christopher was alive in 1459, (fn. 30) and was succeeded by his son John, (fn. 31) who became Sheriff of Yorkshire 'at the king's special request,' but received none of the accustomed issues and profits. As a reward he had a pardon of all offences committed by him and all accounts due to the king. (fn. 32)

His son Sir John Conyers, (fn. 33) who married Alice the daughter and co-heir of William Lord Fauconberg, predeceased him, (fn. 34) and on his death in 1490 he was succeeded by his grandson and heir William, (fn. 35) created Lord Conyers in 1506 or 1507. (fn. 36) He married Anne daughter of Ralph Nevill Earl of Westmorland, and had a son and heir Christopher. (fn. 37)

John Lord Conyers, son and heir of Christopher, died in 1556, and his property was inherited by his four surviving daughters, Margaret, who died unmarried in 1560, (fn. 38) Anne the wife of Anthony Kempe, Elizabeth, who married Thomas Darcy, and Katherine, afterwards wife of John Atherton. (fn. 39)

The heirs of Thomas Darcy and his wife, in whom the barony of Conyers became vested by the failure of heirs to the other two surviving sisters, (fn. 40) acquired by purchase their two-thirds of Hornby. John Atherton, son of Katherine, and his wife Anne quitclaimed their third of the manor to Conyers Darcy, son of Thomas, in 1611, (fn. 41) and their daughter Anne and her husband, Sir William Pennyman, did the same in 1630. (fn. 42) "

Caer-gai, a Roman fort near Llanuwchllyn, was traditionally known as the home of Cei , the character in the Arthurian legend known in English as Sir Kay.[3] Poets of the 15th century recorded a story, ultimately deriving from the Prose Merlin included in the Lancelot-Grail and the Post-Vulgate Cycle , that King Arthur and Cei were raised at Caer-gai as foster brothers.
