Research Notes: Husband - Sir William Herbert First Earl of Pembroke

From Wikipedia - William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (1423-1469) :

William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (c. 1423-1469), known as "Black William", was the grandson of Dafydd Gam , an adherent of King Henry V of England .

Herbert supported the Yorkist faction during the Wars of the Roses , as had his father, William ap Thomas . Herbert was rewarded by King Edward IV with the title Lord Herbert of Raglan in 1461, having assumed an English-style surname in place of the Welsh patronymic . In 1468 he was promoted to Earl of Pembroke . He obtained custody of the young Henry, Earl of Richmond , whom he planned to marry to his own daughter. However, he soon fell out with his great rival, Warwick "the Kingmaker" , who turned against the king. Herbert was executed by the Lancastrians , now led by Warwick, after the Battle of Edgecote Moor , near Banbury.

Herbert was succeeded by his legitimate son, William, but the earldom was surrendered in 1479. It was later revived for a grandson, another William Herbert , the son of Black William's illegitimate son, Sir Richard Herbert of Ewyas .

Marriage and children

He married Anne Devereux, daughter of Walter Devereux , Lord Chancellor of Ireland and Elizabeth Merbury. They had at least ten children:
William Herbert, 2nd Earl of Pembroke (5 March 1451 - 16 July 1491 ).
Sir Walter Herbert.
Sir George Herbert of St. Julians.
Philip Herbert of Lanyhangel.
Cecilie Herbert.

Anne Herbert. Married John Grey, 2nd Lord of Powis .
Isabel Herbert. Married Sir Thomas Cokesey.
Margaret Herbert. Married first Thomas Talbot, 2nd Viscount Lisle and secondly Sir Henry Bodringham.

William had two illegitimate children but the identity of their mother or mothers are uncertain:
Sir Richard Herbert of Ewyas. Father of William Herbert, 1st Earl of Pembroke (1551 creation) .
Sir George Herbert of Swansea. Married Elizabeth Berkeley,

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631846437 :

Thomas Claggett, a captain in the navy of Charles II, inherited landed estates in England but in the fall of 1670 he resigned his commission, left his inheritance and immigrated to American. He arrived early in 1671 and settled on St. Leonard's Creek, near St. Leonard's Town, in Calvert County, MD. After coming to America he changed the spelling of his name to Clagett, and it has been generally so spelled by his descendants ever since, except for those in the line of Bishop Thomas John Claggett, great grandson of Captain Thomas Clagett through his son Richard, and Richard's son, Rev. Samuel Clagett.

He was apparently possessed of considerable means as he at once purchased and received by royal grant a number of large tracts of land...p. 119, Effie Gwynn Bowie, Across the Years in Prince George's Co.

Edward served as Justice of the Peace, Judge of the County Court, and was the first Vestryman of Christ Church Parish. He was Commissioner of Calvert County in 1680; Coroner and Captian of the Calvert County Militia in 1683.

The estates owned were Godlington Manor (1000 acres) on the Eastern shore (MD); Weston (800 acres) near Upper Marlboro, MD; Greenland in Prince Georges County and large tracts near St. Leonard Township.

Research Notes: Husband - Sir Thomas Adams Jr., Knight

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631846492 :

Thomas Adams, 1st Baronet, citizen and Lord Mayor of London, was a man highly esteemed for his prudence and piety, his loyalty and sufferings, and his acts of munificence. He was born in 1586, at Wem, in Shropshire, educated in the University of Cambridge, and raised a draper in London. In 1609, he was chosen sheriff, when he gave a striking proof of his public spirit, by immediately giving up his business, and applying himself wholly to public affairs. He made himself complete master of the customs and usages, rights and privileges of the city of London, and succeeded to every honour his fellow-citizens had in their power to bestow. He was chosen master of the drapers' company, alderman, and president of St. Thomas's hospital, which institution he probably saved from ruin, by discovering the frauds of a dishonest steward. He was often returned member of parliament; but the violent politics of the times would not permit him to sit there.

In 1645, he was elected lord mayor of London, in which office he showed disinterestedness, by declining the advantages usually made by the sale of places which become vacant. His loyalty to Charles I was so well known, that his house was searched by the republican party, to find the king there; and he was the next year committed to the Tower by the same party, and detained there some time. However, at length he became the oldest alderman upon the bench, and was consequently dignified with the honourable title of father of the city. His affection for his prince was so great, that during the exile of Charles II, he remitted him 10,000l.

When the restoration of the king was agreed on, Mr. Adams, then 74 years of age, was deputed by the city to accompany General Monk to Breda in the Netherlands, to congratulate and accompany the king home. For his signal services the king knighted him at the Hague; and soon after the restoration advanced him to the dignity of a baronet, on the June 13, 1661.

His merit, as a benefactor to the public, is highly conspicuous: he gave the house of his nativity, at Wem, as a free-school to the town, and liberally endowed it; he founded an Arabic professorship at Cambridge; both which took place before his death. By desire of his friend, Mr. Wheelock, fellow of Clare-hall, he was at the expense of printing the gospels in Persian, and sending them into the east. He was equally benevolent in private as in public life; and, although he suffered great losses in his estate, he gave liberally in legacies to the poor of many parishes, to hospitals, and ministers' widows. He was particularly distinguished for his patience and fortitude in adversity.

In his latter years he was much afflicted with the stone, which hastened his end. The stone was taken from the body, and was of such extraordinary magnitude as to weigh 25 ounces (1.5 lbs, or 0.7 kg), and is preserved in the laboratory at Cambridge. He felt no reluctance at the approach of his dissolution, and seemed perfectly prepared for death, often saying "Solum mihi superest sepulchrum,"\emdash All my business is to fit me for the grave. His funeral sermon was preached by Dr. Hardy, at St. Catharine Cree Church, before his children and many of his relations. His descendants enjoyed the title down to the late Sir Thomas Adams, who died a captain in the Royal Navy.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631846505 :

Information on this branch of the family is sketchy and it is questionable as to whether the Thomas Adams, Sr. that everyone has listed as the father of our Sir Knight Thomas Adams is the correct father. Our Sir Thomas Adams was a man of great wealth and position, and a staunt Royalist, but the Thomas Adams, Sr. he has been connected with was a simple tanner who would have had puritan loyalties. The family did not have wealth or position.

While it is not impossible for one of his son's to have achieved knighthood and to have obtained power and position, it seems questionable. In those days wealth was generally built up over several generations being handed down from father to eldest son and so on. Power was gained through strategic marriages, or noteworthy service in the name of the King which resulted in land and/or titles being given. And true position came only through inheritance of titles, which had to be conferred on by the King or high ranking Dukes or Barons.

All of the above said, I have found a book that published the genealogys taken by Sir Henry St. George, the Herald of Richmond, between 1633 and 1635. The book is entitled 'Visitations of London, 1633-1635'. Our Adams family is listed in it, with their family crest and clearly gives Thomas' parents as Thomas Adams and Margaret Erpe.

With that evidence, being taken back during the lifetime of the subject children, I believe that the lineage given in this family is probably correct.

Research Notes: Child - Sir Thomas Adams Jr., Knight

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631846492 :

Thomas Adams, 1st Baronet, citizen and Lord Mayor of London, was a man highly esteemed for his prudence and piety, his loyalty and sufferings, and his acts of munificence. He was born in 1586, at Wem, in Shropshire, educated in the University of Cambridge, and raised a draper in London. In 1609, he was chosen sheriff, when he gave a striking proof of his public spirit, by immediately giving up his business, and applying himself wholly to public affairs. He made himself complete master of the customs and usages, rights and privileges of the city of London, and succeeded to every honour his fellow-citizens had in their power to bestow. He was chosen master of the drapers' company, alderman, and president of St. Thomas's hospital, which institution he probably saved from ruin, by discovering the frauds of a dishonest steward. He was often returned member of parliament; but the violent politics of the times would not permit him to sit there.

In 1645, he was elected lord mayor of London, in which office he showed disinterestedness, by declining the advantages usually made by the sale of places which become vacant. His loyalty to Charles I was so well known, that his house was searched by the republican party, to find the king there; and he was the next year committed to the Tower by the same party, and detained there some time. However, at length he became the oldest alderman upon the bench, and was consequently dignified with the honourable title of father of the city. His affection for his prince was so great, that during the exile of Charles II, he remitted him 10,000l.

When the restoration of the king was agreed on, Mr. Adams, then 74 years of age, was deputed by the city to accompany General Monk to Breda in the Netherlands, to congratulate and accompany the king home. For his signal services the king knighted him at the Hague; and soon after the restoration advanced him to the dignity of a baronet, on the June 13, 1661.

His merit, as a benefactor to the public, is highly conspicuous: he gave the house of his nativity, at Wem, as a free-school to the town, and liberally endowed it; he founded an Arabic professorship at Cambridge; both which took place before his death. By desire of his friend, Mr. Wheelock, fellow of Clare-hall, he was at the expense of printing the gospels in Persian, and sending them into the east. He was equally benevolent in private as in public life; and, although he suffered great losses in his estate, he gave liberally in legacies to the poor of many parishes, to hospitals, and ministers' widows. He was particularly distinguished for his patience and fortitude in adversity.

In his latter years he was much afflicted with the stone, which hastened his end. The stone was taken from the body, and was of such extraordinary magnitude as to weigh 25 ounces (1.5 lbs, or 0.7 kg), and is preserved in the laboratory at Cambridge. He felt no reluctance at the approach of his dissolution, and seemed perfectly prepared for death, often saying "Solum mihi superest sepulchrum,"\emdash All my business is to fit me for the grave. His funeral sermon was preached by Dr. Hardy, at St. Catharine Cree Church, before his children and many of his relations. His descendants enjoyed the title down to the late Sir Thomas Adams, who died a captain in the Royal Navy.

Research Notes: Child - William Adams Sr.

From http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=:3143362&id=I631846512 :

William Adams, Sr. was one of the first settlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, he came to America in the spring of 1628. He was of Cambridge in the Massachusetts Bay Colony on 22 May 1639, when he was made a freeman. He was a commoner of Ipswich, Massachusetts on 31 Jan. 1642. He frequently served as a juryman, almost on a continual basis until 1659. William Adams received a grant of twelve acres on 27 Feb 1644. He later purchased an additional nine acres from William Payne on 19 Jul 1654. He was discharged from compulsory military service of the Colony on 28 Oct 1647, due to his age.
