39613 William made his money operating a grist mill and a distillery. The profits were used to expand his land holdings and to purchase slaves (he owned 47 by 1830). In the late 1820s he built an immense estate which he also called Brook Hall. The 8,800 square foot home consisted of 26 rooms, including a ballroom. There were several unique features including a suite of rooms built for the colonel's daughters that could only be accessed through a hidden stairway. The house sat 3 stories tall and included a basement. Byars, William M. (I13379)

William Madison Moore born Sparta, White Co. TN, 25 March 1835. Married about 1858 in Sparta, White Co.TN to Marian (Martha) Meeks, born 17 Nov. 1840 in Sparta to Charles Meeks and wife Nancy. I have copy of page in marriage book where license was issued, was not later filed for recording.1

Following service and capture and being in several prisons he was traded at the end of the war after promising service to the State of the Union, and returned to Sparta, White Co. TN.2 Another child, Charles Meeks Moore was born 4 Feb. 1866 in TN. Some hard feelings caused family upset and as a result W.M. and family left for the south-west arriving in Coryell County in the late 1860's. At first the family settled in the southern part of the county, land which was later taken over by Ft. Hood. Some time in the 70's they relocated to an area of the county known at that time as Waldo, Coryell Co.3 No trace of Waldo remains and after moving across the nearby McLennan Co. line, they settled on some of the best farm land in the country4.

39615 William married Isabel STAVELEY, Of Bignell [1334], daughter of William STAVELEY [231] and Alice FRANCIS [235], in 1488 in Staindrop, Durham, England. (Isabel STAVELEY, Of Bignell [1334] was born in 1460 in Bignell, Oxford, England, christened on 16 Jul 1492 of Bignell, Buckingham, England and died in 1545 in , Buckingham, England.) Family F13678
39616 William married twice, but produced no surviving male progeny:

Firstly in September 1214, aged 24, William married Alice de Bethune (d. pre-1215), daughter of his father's ally Baldwin of Bethune. She was murdered while pregnant with her son. No surviving male progeny resulted, as her son died as she did.[2] There are no existing sources to prove this, they simply state she died nine months after the marriage. Shortly before her death she was involved in a land dispute, leading to theories she was murdered. [3]

Secondly in 1224 William married Eleanor of Leicester, youngest daughter of King John by Isabella of Angoulãeme, thereby strengthening the Marshal family's connection with the Plantagenets. No surviving progeny resulted.

Classification: Query
Surnames: Edwards, Logue, Marrs

Seeking info on where the Marrs names fits into my tree. William Marrs Logue was born in 1777 in VA to William Logue (b. 1760 MD, yes this makes him 17 when he had W. Marrs, so correct me if you know something I don't) & Martha Jane Edwards (b. 1757 Scotland). Assuming the Marrs comes from Marthas side but I hit a wall at William Logue Sr. & Martha, so it could come from either side. Any info is appreciated.

39618 William Marshal, 1st Earl of Pembroke (1146 or 1147 - 14 May 1219), also called William the Marshal (Norman French: Williame le Mareschal), was an Anglo-Norman soldier and statesman.[1] He served five English kings – The "Young King" Henry, Henry II, Richard I, John, and Henry III.

Knighted in 1166, he spent his younger years as a knight errant and a successful tournament fighter; Stephen Langton eulogized him as the "best knight that ever lived."[2] In 1189, he received the title of Earl of Pembroke through marriage during the second creation of the Pembroke Earldom. In 1216, he was appointed protector for the nine-year-old Henry III, and regent of the kingdom.

Before him, his father's family held an hereditary title of Marshal to the king, which by his father's time had become recognized as a chief or master Marshalcy, involving management over other Marshals and functionaries. William became known as 'the Marshal', although by his time much of the function was actually delegated to more specialized representatives (as happened with other functions in the King's household). Because he was an Earl, and also known as the Marshal, the term "Earl Marshal" was commonly used and this later became an established hereditary title in the English Peerage.

Early life

Tomb effigy of William Marshal in Temple Church, London
William's father, John Marshal, supported King Stephen when he took the throne in 1135, but in about 1139 he changed sides to back the Empress Matilda in the civil war of succession between her and Stephen which led to the collapse of England into "the Anarchy".[4]

When King Stephen besieged Newbury Castle in 1152, according to William's biographer, he used the young William as a hostage to ensure that John kept his promise to surrender the castle. John, however, used the time allotted to reinforce the castle and alert Matilda's forces. When Stephen ordered John to surrender immediately or William would be hanged, John replied that he should go ahead saying, "I still have the hammer and the anvil with which to forge still more and better sons!" Subsequently there was a bluff made to launch William from a pierriáere, a type of trebuchet towards the castle. Fortunately for the child, Stephen could not bring himself to harm young William.[5] William remained a crown hostage for many months, only being released following the peace that resulted from the terms agreed at Winchester on 6 November 1153 that ended the civil war.


As a younger son of a minor nobleman, William had no lands or fortune to inherit, and had to make his own way in life. Around the age of twelve, when his father's career was faltering, he was sent to Normandy to be brought up in the household of William de Tancarville, a great magnate and cousin of young William's mother. Here he began his training as a knight. This would have included basic biblical stories and prayers written in Latin, as well as exposure to French romances, which conferred the basic precepts of chivalry to the budding knight.[6] In addition, while in Tancarville’s household, it is likely that Marshal also learned important and lasting practical lessons concerning the politics of courtly life. According to his thirteenth-century biography, L'Histoire de Guillaume le Marechal, Marshal had a number of adversaries in court who machinated to his disadvantage—these individuals likely would have been threatened by the boy’s close relationship with the magnate.[7] He was knighted in 1166 on campaign in Upper Normandy, then being invaded from Flanders. His first experience in battle came with mixed reviews. According to L'Histoire, everyone who witnessed the young knight in action agreed that he had acquitted himself well in combat. However, as medieval historian David Crouch explains, “War in the twelfth century was not fought wholly for honour. Profit was there to be made…”[8] On this front, Marshal was not so successful, as he was unable to parlay his combat victories into profit from either ransom or seized booty. As described in L'Histoire, the Earl of Essex, who was expecting the customary tribute from his valorous knight following battle, jokingly remarked: “Oh? But Marshal, what are you saying? You had forty or sixty of them — yet you refuse me so small a thing!”[9] In 1167 he was taken by William de Tancarville to his first tournament where he found his true mâetier. Quitting the Tancarville household he then served in the household of his mother's brother, Patrick, Earl of Salisbury. In 1168 his uncle was killed in an ambush by Guy de Lusignan. William was injured and captured in the same skirmish. It is known that William received a wound to his thigh and that someone in his captor's household took pity on the young knight. He received a loaf of bread in which were concealed several lengths of clean linen bandages with which he could dress his wounds. This act of kindness by an unknown person perhaps saved Marshal's life as infection setting into the wound could have killed him. After a period of time, he was ransomed by Eleanor of Aquitaine, who was apparently impressed by tales of his bravery.

Thereafter he found he could make a good living out of winning tournaments, dangerous, often deadly, staged battles in which money and valuable prizes could be won by capturing and ransoming opponents, their horses and armour. His record is legendary: on his deathbed he recalled besting 500 knights during his tourneying career.[10]

Royal favour

13th-century depiction by Matthew Paris of the Earl of Pembroke's coat of arms[11]
Upon his return during the course of 1185 William rejoined the court of King Henry II, and now served the father as a loyal captain through the many difficulties of his final years. The returns of royal favour were almost immediate. The king gave William the large royal estate of Cartmel in Cumbria, and the keeping of Heloise, the heiress of the northern barony of Lancaster. It may be that the king expected him to take the opportunity to marry her and become a northern baron, but William seems to have had grander ambitions for his marriage. In 1188 faced with an attempt by Philip II to seize the disputed region of Berry, Henry II summoned the Marshal to his side. The letter by which he did this survives, and makes some sarcastic comments about William's complaints that he had not been properly rewarded to date for his service to the king. Henry therefore promised him the marriage and lands of Dionisia, lady of Chãateauroux in Berry. In the resulting campaign, the king fell out with his heir Richard, count of Poitou, who consequently allied with Philip II against his father. In 1189, while covering the flight of Henry II from Le Mans to Chinon, William unhorsed the undutiful Richard in a skirmish. William could have killed the prince but killed his horse instead, to make that point clear. He is said to have been the only man ever to unhorse Richard. Nonetheless after Henry's death, Marshal was welcomed at court by his former adversary, now King Richard I, who was wise to include a man whose legendary loyalty and military accomplishments were too useful to ignore, especially in a king who was intending to go on Crusade.[1]

During the old king's last days he had promised the Marshal the hand and estates of Isabel de Clare (c.1172–1220), but had not completed the arrangements. King Richard however, confirmed the offer and so in August 1189, at the age of 43, the Marshal married the 17-year-old daughter of Richard de Clare (Strongbow). Her father had been Earl of Pembroke, and Marshal acquired large estates and claims in England, Wales, Normandy and Ireland. Some estates however were excluded from the deal. Marshal did not obtain Pembroke and the title of earl, which his father-in-law had enjoyed, until 1199, as it had been taken into the king's hand in 1154. However, the marriage transformed the landless knight from a minor family into one of the richest men in the kingdom, a sign of his power and prestige at court. They had five sons and five daughters, and have numerous descendants.[1] William made numerous improvements to his wife's lands, including extensive additions to Pembroke Castle and Chepstow Castle.[citation needed]

William was included in the council of regency which the King appointed on his departure for the Third Crusade in 1190. He took the side of John, the king's brother, when the latter expelled the justiciar, William Longchamp, from the kingdom, but he soon discovered that the interests of John were different from those of Richard. Hence in 1193 he joined with the loyalists in making war upon him. In spring 1194, during the course of the hostilities in England and before King Richard's return, William Marshal's elder brother John Marshal (who was serving as seneschal) was killed while defending Marlborough for the king's brother John. Richard allowed Marshal to succeed his brother in the hereditary marshalship, and his paternal honour of Hamstead Marshall. The Marshal served the king in his wars in Normandy against Philip II. On Richard's death-bed the king designated Marshal as custodian of Rouen and of the royal treasure during the interregnum.[1]

King John and Magna Carta

A 13th-century depiction of the Second Battle of Lincoln, which occurred at Lincoln Castle on 20 May 1217; the illustration shows the death of Thomas du Perche, the Comte de la Perche

William supported King John when he became king in 1199, arguing against those who maintained the claims of Arthur of Brittany, the teenage son of John's elder brother Geoffrey Plantagenet. William was heavily engaged with the defence of Normandy against the growing pressure of the Capetian armies between 1200 and 1203. He sailed with King John when he abandoned the duchy in December 1203. He and the king had a falling out in the aftermath of the loss of the duchy, when he was sent with the earl of Leicester as ambassadors to negotiate a truce with King Philip II of France in 1204. The Marshal took the opportunity to negotiate the continued possession of his Norman lands.

Before commencing negotiations with King Philip, William had been generously permitted to do homage to the King of France by King John so he might keep his possessions in Normandy; land which must have been of sentimental value due to the time spent there in his youth and adolescence. However, once official negotiations began, Philip demanded that such homage be paid exclusively to him, which King John had not consented to.[12] When William paid homage to King Philip, John took offence and there was a major row at court which led to cool relations between the two men. This became outright hostility in 1207 when John began to move against several major Irish magnates, including William. Though he left for Leinster in 1207 William was recalled and humiliated at court in the autumn of 1208, while John's justiciar in Ireland Meilyr fitz Henry invaded his lands, burning the town of New Ross.

Meilyr's defeat by Countess Isabel led to her husband's return to Leinster. He was once again in conflict with King John in his war with the Braose and Lacy families in 1210, but managed to survive. He stayed in Ireland until 1213, during which time he had Carlow Castle erected[13] and restructured his honour of Leinster. Taken back into favour in 1212, he was summoned in 1213 to return to the English court. Despite their differences, William remained loyal throughout the hostilities between John and his barons which culminated on 15 June 1215 at Runnymede with the sealing of Magna Carta. William was one of the few English earls to remain loyal to the king through the First Barons' War. It was William whom King John trusted on his deathbed to make sure John's nine-year-old son Henry would get the throne. It was William who took responsibility for the king's funeral and burial at Worcester Cathedral.[1]

On 11 November 1216 at Gloucester, upon the death of King John, William Marshal was named by the king's council (the chief barons who had remained loyal to King John in the First Barons' War) to serve as protector of the nine-year-old King Henry III, and regent of the kingdom. In spite of his advanced age (around 70) he prosecuted the war against Prince Louis and the rebel barons with remarkable energy. In the battle of Lincoln he charged and fought at the head of the young King's army, leading them to victory. He was preparing to besiege Louis in London when the war was terminated by the naval victory of Hubert de Burgh in the straits of Dover. [1]

William was criticised for the generosity of the terms he accorded to Louis and the rebels in September 1217; but his desire for an expeditious settlement was dictated by sound statesmanship. Self-restraint and compromise were the keynote of Marshal's policy, hoping to secure peace and stability for his young liege. Both before and after the peace of 1217 he reissued Magna Carta, in which he is a signatory as one of the witnessing barons.

Death and legacy

William Marshal was interred in Temple Church, London
Marshal's health finally failed him early in 1219. In March 1219 he realised that he was dying, so he summoned his eldest son, also William, and his household knights, and left the Tower of London for his estate at Caversham in Berkshire, near Reading, where he called a meeting of the barons, Henry III, the Papal legate Pandulf Verraccio, the royal justiciar (Hubert de Burgh), and Peter des Roches (Bishop of Winchester and the young King's guardian). William rejected the Bishop's claim to the regency and entrusted the regency to the care of the papal legate; he apparently did not trust the Bishop or any of the other magnates that he had gathered to this meeting. Fulfilling the vow he had made while on crusade, he was invested into the order of the Knights Templar on his deathbed. He died on 14 May 1219 at Caversham, and was buried in the Temple Church in London, where his tomb can still be seen.[1]

The fate of the Marshal family

During the civil wars in Ireland, William had taken two manors that the Bishop of Ferns claimed but could not get back. Some years after William's death, that bishop is said[14] to have laid a curse on the family that William's sons would have no children, and the great Marshal estates would be scattered. Each of William's sons did become earl of Pembroke and marshal of England, and each died without legitimate issue. William's vast holdings were then divided among the husbands of his five daughters. The title of "Marshal" went to the husband of the oldest daughter, Hugh Bigod, 3rd Earl of Norfolk, and later passed to the Mowbray dukes of Norfolk and then to the Howard dukes of Norfolk, becoming "Earl Marshal" along the way. The title of "Earl of Pembroke" passed to William of Valence, the husband of Joan Marshal's daughter, Joan de Munchensi; he became the first of the de Valence line of earls of Pembroke.

Through his daughter Isabel, William is ancestor to the both the Bruce and Stewart kings of Scots. Through his granddaughter Maud de Braose, William is ancestor to the last Plantagenet kings, Edward IV through Richard III, and all English monarchs from Henry VIII and afterward.

39619 William Maudit (or Mauduit), 8th Earl of Warwick (c. 1220 – 8 January 1267) was an English nobleman and participant in the Barons' War.

He was the son of Alice de Beaumont (daughter of the 4th Earl) and William de Maudit, and so was the grandson of Waleran de Beaumont, 4th Earl of Warwick. His father was the Lord of Hanslope and hereditary Chamberlain of the Exchequer, a title that went back to another William Maudit who held that office for Henry I.

He adhered to Henry III in the wars with the barons. He was surprised in his own castle, Warwick Castle by John Giffard, the governor of Kenilworth Castle. The walls of the castle were destroyed and the countess taken prisoner to Kenilworth, and only released on payment of a ransom nineteen hundred marks.

William Mauduit made the inner ward in the northwestern corner of Portchester Castle (Portus Adurni) for an unknown reason. This was made in 1090 and is a Norman Castle and had palisades on each side of the castle.

William Maudit married to Alice de Segrave and had no issue[1]. When he died, his estates passed to his sister, Isabel de Maudit, who had married William de Beauchamp. She died shortly after Warwick's death and the title passed to their son William Beauchamp, as the 9th Earl of Warwick.

39622 William Montagu, alias de Montacute, 1st Earl of Salisbury, 3rd Baron Montagu, King of Mann (1301 – 30 January 1344) was an English nobleman and loyal servant of King Edward III.

The son of William Montagu, 2nd Baron Montagu, he entered the royal household at an early age and became a close companion of the young Prince Edward. The relationship continued after Edward was crowned king following the deposition of Edward II in 1327. In 1330, Montagu was one of Edward's main accomplices in the coup against Roger Mortimer, who up until then had been acting as the king's protector.

In the following years Montagu served the king in various capacities, primarily in the Scottish Wars. He was richly rewarded, and among other things received the lordship of the Isle of Man. In 1337, he was created Earl of Salisbury, and given an annual income of 1000 marks to go with the title. He served on the Continent in the early years of the Hundred Years' War, but in 1340 he was captured by the French, and in return for his freedom had to promise never to fight in France again. Salisbury died of wounds suffered at a tournament early in 1344.

Legend has it that Montagu's wife Catherine was raped by Edward III, but this story is almost certainly French propaganda. William and Catherine had six children, most of whom married into the nobility. Modern historians have called William Montague Edward's "most intimate personal friend"[3] and "the chief influence behind the throne from Mortimer's downfall in 1330 until his own death in 1344."[4]

Family background

William Montagu, born at Cassington, Oxfordshire in 1301, was the second but eldest surviving son of William Montagu, 2nd Baron Montagu, and Elizabeth de Montfort, daughter of Sir Peter Montfort of Beaudesert, Warwickshire.[5] by Matilda/Maud de la Mare daughter and heiress of Henry de la Mare of Ashtead, Surrey, Royal Justice, Seneschal of William Longspree II Earl of Salisbury.[6] The Montagu family, a West Country family with roots going back to the Conquest, held extensive lands in Somerset, Dorset and Devon.[7] The father, William Montagu, distinguished himself in the Scottish Wars during the reign of Edward I, and served as steward of Edward II's household. Some members of the nobility, including Thomas of Lancaster, viewed Montagu with suspicion, as a member of a court party with undue influence on the king.[8] For this reason he was sent to Aquitaine, to serve as seneschal. Here he died on 18 October 1319.[8] Even though he sat in parliament as a baron, the second lord Montagu never rose above a level of purely regional importance.[9]

Early service

The younger William was still a minor at the time of his father's death, and entered the royal household as a ward of the king in 1320.[10] On 21 February 1323 he was granted his father's lands and title.[5] His service to Edward II took him abroad to the Continent in both 1320 and 1325.[5] In 1326 he was knighted.[9] After the deposition of Edward II in 1327, Montagu continued in the service of Edward's son Edward III. He helped the new king in repelling the Scottish invasion of 1327, and was created knight banneret in 1328.[5]

Montagu enjoyed a close relationship with Edward III, and accompanied him abroad on a diplomatic mission in 1329. That same year he was sent on an embassy to negotiate a marriage alliance with King Philip VI of France.[5] His most important task, however, came in connection with a mission to the Papacy in Avignon. The young king—along with his government—was under the dominance of his mother Isabella and her lover Roger Mortimer, who had been responsible for the deposition of the king's father.[11] Montagu explained the king's situation, and Pope John XXII asked for a special signal that assure him that he was dealing with the king in person. After Montagu's return, Richard Bury, Keeper of the Privy Seal, wrote to inform the pope that only letters containing the words pater sancte (holy father), in Edward's own handwriting, were indeed from the king. Only Edward, Bury and Montagu were party to the scheme.[12]

Coup against Mortimer

When Mortimer discovered the conspiracy against him, Montagu was brought in for interrogation – along with the king – but gave nothing away.[10] Afterward he supposedly advised Edward to move against his protector, because "It was better that they should eat the dog than that the dog should eat them".[5] On 19 October 1330, while Mortimer and Isabella were entrenched in Nottingham Castle, the constable of the castle showed Montagu a secret entrance through an underground tunnel.[13] Along with Edward de Bohun, Robert Ufford, and John Neville and others, he entered the castle, where he met up with the king.[5] A short brawl followed before Mortimer was captured. The queen stormed into the chamber shouting "Good son, have pity on noble Mortimer".[14] Edward did not obey his mother's wishes, and a few weeks later Mortimer was executed for treason in London.[15] As a reward for his part in the coup, Montagu was given lands worth ¹1000, including the Welsh lordship of Denbigh that had belonged to Mortimer.[16] His family also benefited; his brother Simon Montacute became Bishop of Worcester and later of Ely.[17] Another brother, Edward Montagu, 1st Baron Montagu, married Alice of Norfolk, a co-heir of Thomas of Brotherton, 1st Earl of Norfolk.[18]

Service under Edward III

Edward III founded the Order of the Garter in 1348, and included Salisbury's son among the founding members.
In the years to come, Montagu acted as Edward's closest companion.[3] In April 1331, the two went on a secret expedition to France, disguised as merchants so they would not be recognised. In September of the same year, Montagu held a tournament at Cheapside, where he and the king were costumed as Tartars.[5] From 1333 onwards, Montagu was deeply engaged in the Scottish Wars, and distinguished himself at the Siege of Berwick and the Battle of Halidon Hill. It was after this event that his lordship over the Isle of Man was recognised, a right he held from his grandfather.[5] The lordship was at the moment of a purely theoretical nature, however, since the island was still under Scottish control.

In February 1334 Montagu was sent on a commission to Edinburgh, to demand Edward Balliol's homage to Edward. In the great summer campaign of 1335, it was Montagu who provided the largest English contingent, with 180 men-at-arms and 136 archers.[5] He was well rewarded for his contributions: after the Scots had been forced to cede the Lowlands, Montagu was granted the county of Peeblesshire. He was also allowed to buy the wardship of Roger Mortimer's son Roger for 1000 marks, a deal that turned out to be very lucrative for Montagu.[19] At this point, however, the fortunes were turning for the English in Scotland. Montagu campaigned in the north again in 1337, but the siege of Dunbar met with failure.[20] Following the abortive attempt in Scotland, Edward III turned his attention to the continent.

The Hundred Years' War

Montagu was created Earl of Salisbury on 16 March 1337. This was one of six comital promotions Edward III made that day, in preparation for what was to become the Hundred Years' War.[21] To allow Montagu to support his new status, the king granted him land and rent of a value of 1000 marks a year. The money was provided from the royal stannaries of Cornwall.[22] A contemporary poem tells of a vow made by the earl on the eve of the wars – he would not open one of his eyes while fighting in France. The story is probably a satire; the truth was that Montagu had already lost the use of one of his eyes in a tournament.[23]

In April 1337, Montagu was appointed to a diplomatic commission to Valenciennes, to establish alliances with Flanders and the German princes.[24] In July 1338, he accompanied the king on another mission to the continent, again providing the greatest number of soldiers, with 123 men-at-arms and 50 archers.[5] In September of that year he was made Marshal of England. After the death of Thomas of Brotherton, Earl of Norfolk, this office had come into the hands of Norfolk's daughter Margaret. The king did not trust the office with her husband, so he decided instead to bestow it on his trusted companion, Montagu.[25] Edward's policy of building alliances put him in great debt, and when he left the Low Countries to return to England late in 1338, Salisbury had to stay behind as surety to the king's debtors, along with the king's family and the Earl of Derby.[26] The earl had earlier voiced concerns about the costly alliances, but he nevertheless remained loyal to the king's strategy.[27]

While Edward was away, Salisbury was captured by the French at Lille in April 1340, and imprisoned in Paris.[5] Reportedly, King Philip VI of France wanted to execute Salisbury and Robert Ufford, Earl of Suffolk, who was captured with him. Philip was, however, dissuaded by John of Bohemia, who argued that the earls could come in handy in an exchange, should any French noblemen be captured.[28] Though released on parole in September, it was not until May 1342 that he reached a final settlement with the French. Salisbury was freed in a prisoner exchange, but only on the condition that he never fight in France again.[5]

Final years

Salisbury's residence of Bisham Manor in Berkshire.
Salisbury had long been frustrated by the failure of the government in England to provide sufficient funds for the war effort.[29] On his return, however, he played little part in the conflict of 1341 between King Edward and Chancellor John Stratford. In May that year he was appointed to a committee to hear the king's charges against Stratford, but little came from this.[30] In 1342–43 he fought with Robert of Artois in the Breton War of Succession, and in 1343 helped negotiate the Truce of Malestroit.[5] It was probably sometime after this he made good his claim on the Isle of Man, by conquering the island which was until then held by the Scots.[5]

His final international commission took place late in 1343, when he accompanied Henry of Grosmont, Earl of Derby, on a diplomatic mission to Castile.[5] Early in 1344 he was back in England, where he took part in a great tournament at Windsor. It was during this tournament, according to the chronicler Adam Murimuth, that he received wounds that would prove fatal.[5] Salisbury died on 30 January 1344. He was buried at Bisham Priory in Berkshire, adjoining his home, Bisham Manor. He had founded the priory himself in 1337, on his elevation to the earldom.[31] King Edward's financial obligations were never paid in full during the earl's lifetime, and at Salisbury' death the king owed him ¹11,720. Of this, some ¹6374 were written off by his executors in 1346.


In or before 1327 Salisbury married Catherine, daughter of William de Grandison, 1st Baron Grandison. Two anecdotal stories revolve around Catherine Montagu; in one she is identified as the "Countess of Salisbury" from whose dropped garter Edward III named the Order of the Garter.[5] In the other, Edward III falls in love with the countess, and arranges to be alone with her so he can rape her. Neither story is supported by contemporary evidence, and the latter almost certainly is a product of French propaganda.[32]

William and Catherine had six children, most of whom made highly fortunate matches with other members of the nobility.[18] The first Earl of Salisbury made enormous additions to the family fortune; at the time of his father's death, the lands had been valued at just over ¹300. In 1344, only the annual income of the lands has been estimated to more than ¹2,300,[18] equivalent to about ¹1.82 million in present day terms.[33] Edward was also free with granting franchises to Salisbury, including the return of writs, which gave the earl authority in his lands normally held by the royally appointed sheriff.[34] Salisbury's oldest son William succeeded his father in July 1349, while still a minor, as William Montagu, 2nd Earl of Salisbury.[35] The younger William was one of the founding members of the Order of the Garter, but he never enjoyed the same favour with the king as his father had.[9]

The children of William and Catherine were as follows:[36]

[F7490]. William MOULTON.
Born about 1617 at Ormsby, Norfolkshire, England. Ormsby lies “near Great Yarmouth and not far from Norwich, in County Norfolk.”

William came to New England with the family of Robert PAGE [F7614] in 1637, when he was 20 years old. William MOULTON and John MOULTON , both of Ormsby and later Newbury in Massachusetts, were both “examined” on the same day, on 11 APR 1637, before leaving England. John was born about 1599 in Ormsby, and was probably a brother to William; though with the age difference, he could have been his father. Thomas MOULTON was probably another brother. He also lived in Newbury, Massachusetts and Hampton, New Hampshire; but he finally settled in York, Maine.

Two ships apparently sailed together, and these brothers came on one or the other of them. One was the ship John and Dorethy of Ipswich, with William Andrews the master. The other ship was the Rose, commanded by the son of William Andrews.

They probably landed at Boston, and then they went to Newbury, Massachusetts. They remained there a little over a year.

They then joined a new settlement at Winnacunnett, now Hampton, Rockingham County, New Hampshire in (1639-S?). There William MOULTON “took up his permanent abode” near Thomas MOULTON and John MOULTON.

He married Margaret PAGE [7491] about 1651, and they settled for a short time near her parents. William and Margaret moved to Hampton, New Hampshire in (1639-S?)(in 1651-S?).

His will was dated 8 MAR 1663. (Essex County, Mass., Probate Records, Vol. 2, ppg 9-11). In it he declares himself to be “sick and weak of body.” He died 18 APR 1664. He left a large estate, a double mansion in one of the best locations in the new township, with orchards, tillable land, meadows, and marshes, as well as considerable personal estate.

39626 William of Salisbury, 2nd Earl of Salisbury (died 1196) was an Anglo-Norman peer. Though he is generally known as such, his proper title was Earl of Wiltshire, which title was conferred on his father by the Empress Maud around 1143. He was also called William FitzPatrick. (No relation to the Irish medieval dynasts who bore the surname "Fitzpatrick", which itself is a later anglicization of the Irish "Mac Giolla Phâadraig".)

He was the son and heir of Patrick of Salisbury, Earl of Wiltshire, styled Earl of Salisbury, and of Ela Talvas.[1]


He married Elâeonore, daughter of Robert III de Vitrâe of Tilliers. He died without male issue in 1196. Their only daughter and heiress, was Ela of Salisbury, 3rd Countess of Salisbury who married William Longespâee, 3rd Earl of Salisbury, who was half-brother to the king.

Service to Richard

William bore the golden sceptre at the coronation of King Richard I, but the next year when the king became a prisoner in Almaine, he was one of those who adhered to the then Count of Mortain, who later became King John of England. In 1194 he served as High Sheriff of Somerset and Dorset. In 1195, William was back with King Richard in the expedition into Normandy and upon his return to England was one of Richard's great council assembled at Nottingham. The Earl of Salisbury was one of the four earls who supported the canopy of state at the second coronation of Richard that same year [2]

39629 William Paston (1378 - 13 August 1444), the only son of Clement Paston and Beatrice Somerton, had a distinguished career as a lawyer and Justice of the Common Pleas. He acquired considerable property, and is considered "the real founder of the Paston family fortunes".[1][2]


William Paston was the only son of Clement Paston (d.1419) and Beatrice Somerton (d.1409). Two decades after William Paston's death it was alleged that the Paston family had descended from serfs.[2] However during the reign of Edward IV the Pastons were granted a declaration that they were "gentlemen discended lineally of worship blood sithen the conquest hither".[2]


By 1406 William Paston was an attorney in the Court of Common Pleas, and in the ensuing years occupied various legal posts in East Anglia, acting in 1411 as counsel to the city of Norwich and the cathedral priory, and as chief steward to Bishop Richard Courtenay (d.1415), chief steward of Bromholm Priory, and chief steward of Bishop's Lynn. In 1418 he was appointed a Justice of the Peace for Norfolk, and in 1420 was acting as counsel for the Duchy of Lancaster and for the Earl Marshal, John de Mowbray, 2nd Duke of Norfolk. He was executor and feoffee for several gentlemen in East Anglia, and was appointed to numerous Norfolk commissions.[2][3]

He became serjeant-at-law about 1418, and on 15 October 1429 was appointed a Justice of the Common Pleas, a position in which he served until shortly before his death.[2][4]

During his lifetime Paston "put together an imposing estate from the proceeds of office, carrying his family into the front rank of Norfolk landed families".[2] He purchased the manor of Snailwell in Cambridgeshire, but otherwise confined his property acquisitions to Norfolk. Before 1426 he had purchased the manor of Cromer, and in 1427 he purchased the manor of Gresham from Thomas Chaucer.[2][4] In 1418, he and his wife, Agnes, provided funds for the rebuilding of the parish church at Therfield, where they were formerly commemorated by an inscription in the east window of the north aisle.[5]

Paston died at London on 13 August 1444, and was buried at Norwich, in the Lady Chapel of Norwich Cathedral.[2][4] His widow, who was about twenty years of age at the time of her marriage, survived him by thirty-five years, but never remarried. She died on 18 August 1479, and was buried at the Whitefriars, Norwich, with her parents, grandparents, and youngest son, Clement, who had predeceased her.[2][6]

Marriage and issue

In 1420, at the age of forty-two, Paston married Agnes Barry or Berry (d. 18 August 1479), the daughter and coheir of Sir Edmund Barry (d.1433) of Horwellbury, near Therfield and Royston, Hertfordshire,[7] by whom he had four sons and one daughter:[8][2][9][5]

John Paston (10 October 1421 – 21 or 22 May 1466), who married Margaret Mautby (d.1484), daughter of John Mautby of Mautby,[10] and has issue including two sons both called John, one born in 1442 and one born in 1444.
Edmund Paston (1425 – c. 21 March 1449), who died without issue.[11]
William Paston (1436 – September 1496), who married, before 1470, Anne Beaufort, third daughter of Edmund Beaufort, 2nd Duke of Somerset, by whom he had at least four daughters, one of whom died in childhood. He is credited with having compiled, about 1450, part of the manuscript known as The Paston Book of Arms (NRO, MS Rye 38).[12][13]
Clement Paston (1442 – c. August 1479), who died without issue.[14]
Elizabeth Paston (1 July 1429 – 1 February 1488), who married firstly Sir Robert Poynings, slain at the Second Battle of St Albans on 17 February 1461, by whom she had an only son, Sir Edward Poynings, and secondly Sir George Browne of Betchworth Castle (beheaded on Tower Hill 4 December 1483), by whom she had two sons, Sir Matthew and George, and a daughter, Mary.[2][9][15][16]


Many letters written by William Paston's family and their circle have survived, making the Paston Letters an exceptionally valuable collection of historical documents; the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography has called them "the richest source there is for every aspect of the lives of gentlemen and gentlewomen of the English middle ages".[1]

39633 William R. E. Bethell

William R. E. Bethell was born in 1837 in Tennessee. His parents were Lemuel Hall Bethell (1810-1888) and Elizabeth Buchanan (1815-1892). He was living in District 5, Davidson, Tennessee in 1850.

"From E. L. Collette* of Fort Smith, Arkansas, (WRE) Graduated from the University of Tennessee in 1856. One of the signers of the diploma was L.M. Bethell. Letter from Tommy Webb (23 Sep 1992), William R.C. Bethell (on page 143 of 1976 book) was apparently a son of Lemuel Hall Bethell (1810-1888), a Baptist preacher who lived his last years in Woodbury, Tennessee. For documentary proof of William R.C. being son of L.H. Bethell, they are listed in the 1850 census of Davidson Co., Tennessee, with L.H. Bethell 39, Wm R.E. 13. Observation: the L.M. Bethell listed as one of the signers of William R.C. Bethell's diploma could easily have been misread from L.H. Bethell."**

He married Sarah "Sallie" N. Buford (1839-1864) on 2 Feb 1858 in Wilson Co., Tennessee. They had two children: Avondale (Avie) (1859-1932) and Walter T. (1861 - unk).

WRE served in the Civil War for 3 years and 9 months. He enlisted on 7 Sep 1861 and served in the 28th (Second Tennessee Mountain) Infantry as a private. He was in Camp Zollicoffer and was appointed Ordnance Sergeant on 28 Sep 1861. Later records show that WRE served in the 8th Regiment Tennessee Cavalry (Smith's) as a 3rd Sergeant and that he had a sorrel horse worth $500.

Sallie died in 1864. WRE was in the War at the time of her death. WRE surrendered in Charlotte, NC on 3 May 1865 and signed an Oath of Allegiance on 15 Jun 1865 before Capt. Charles D. Coleman, Assistant Provost Marshal at Nashville, TN. The Oath of Allegiance shows that he was living in Wilson Co., TN. His physical characteristics were:

Complexion: Fair
Hair: Dark
Eyes: Blue
Height: 5 ft. 10 in.

He married Angeline Pauline Fitzhugh on 28 Jan 1866 in Nashville, Tennessee. They had seven children: Lemuel Hall (1867-1904), Sarah "Sallie" Buford (1869-1919), Mary Inez (1873-1933), John Fitzhugh (1875-1929), Jonathan Rodman Wolsey (1877-1938), Elmo (1879-1917) and Infant (unk-before 1900).

The 1870 Census shows that WRE and Angie were living in Nashville, Davidson, Tennessee along with Avie, Walter, Hall and Sarah.

The 1880 Census shows Avie and Walter living with Sallie's Mother, Emily Buford in District 18, Davidson, Tennessee.

Based on the information in an application for Civil War Pension dated 4 Aug 1899, WRE and Angie moved to Ellis County, Texas in 1873. This information is disputed by the Texas County Tax Rolls 1846-1910 which shows WRE in Cooke County, Texas from 1874-1878. He appears on the Ellis County tax rolls in 1881 - 1988.

WRE died on 11 Jan 1897 in Ellis County, Texas.

The 1900 Census shows Angie as being widowed living in Ellis Co., Texas with Wolsey and Elmo. The 1900 Census also states that Angie had 7 children with 6 living.

* WRE's granddaughter, Ollie Bethell's second husband was E. L. Collette.

39635 William Randolph (bapt. 7 November 1650 - 11 April 1711) was a colonist and land owner who played an important role in the history and government of the English colony of Virginia. He moved to Virginia sometime between 1669 and 1673, and married Mary Isham (ca. 1659 - 29 December 1735) a few years later.

His descendants include many prominent individuals including Thomas Jefferson, John Marshall, Robert E. Lee, Peyton Randolph, Edmund Randolph, John Randolph of Roanoke, George W. Randolph and Edmund Ruffin. Genealogists have taken an interest in him for his progeny's many marital alliances, referring to him and Mary Isham as "the Adam and Eve of Virginia".

In Martin Gardner's 1760 Bertie Co., NC will, he bequeathed his land to his 3 daughters, Anna, Ann, and Jane, and the Bertie Co. deeds show these 3 tracts of land, each "1/3 part of land which Martin Gardner gave his 3 daughters," in the possession of the Gardner girls' husbands (William Sparkman, Jonathan Standley, and James Purvis, respectively) after 1760. When Ann (Gardner) Standley wrote her will, she mentioned her sister, Anna (Gardner) Sparkman.

39642 William Stone, 3rd Proprietary Governor of Maryland (c. 1603 - c. 1660) was an English pioneer and an early settler in Maryland. He was governor of the colony of Maryland from 1649 to 1655.

Early life

Stone was born in Northamptonshire, England.[1]

On 15 Sept 1619 William Stone set sail for Virginia on the Margaret of Bristol, and was one of the people being sent to Berkeley Hundred to work under Captain John Woodlief's supervision. William was supposed to serve the Society of Berkeley Hundred's investors for six years in exchange for 30 acres of land. Sometime prior to 9 February 1629, he received a tobacco bill from Richard Wheeler. By 4 June 1635, William had patented 1,800 acres in Accomack. Local court records reveal that he was the brother to Andrew Stone and Captain John Stone, who had been trading on the Eastern Shore since 1626. By 1634 William Stone had become a commissioner of the county court. Some time prior to February 1636, he married Verlinda, the daughter of Captain Thomas Graves. William went on to become sheriff and vestryman. In 1645 he was residing on the Eastern Shore, in what had become Northampton County. By 1648 he had become the third proprietary governor of Maryland.[2] Stone came to America in 1628 with a group of Puritans who settled in the Eastern shore of Chesapeake Bay in Virginia. Their settlement thrived, but eventually came into conflict with Virginia's established Episcopal Church.

In 1648, Stone reached an agreement with Cecilius Calvert, the 2nd Lord Baltimore to resettle the group in central Maryland.

Governor of the Maryland colony

On August 8, 1648, Lord Baltimore named Stone the Governor of his colony. He was the first Protestant Governor. The Assembly sought a confirmation of their religious liberty and in 1649 Governor Stone signed the Religious Toleration Act, which permitted liberty to all Christian denominations.

In 1649, Stone and Puritan exiles from Virginia founded the town of Providence on the north shore of the Severn River and across from what is today the Maryland state capital of Annapolis.

In 1654, after the Third English Civil War (1649–51), Parliamentary forces assumed control of Maryland and Stone went into exile in Virginia. Per orders from Lord Baltimore, Stone returned the following spring at the head of a Cavalier force. But, in what is known as the Battle of the Severn (March 25, 1655), Stone was defeated and taken prisoner.

Stone was replaced as Governor by Josias Fendall (1628–87), and took no further part in public affairs.

William Stone wrote his will on 3 Dec 1659, and it was proved in Charles Co. Maryland on 21 Dec 1660. Verlinda Graves Stone wrote her will on 3 March 1674-5, and the will was proved on 13 July 1675 in Charles Co., MD.[3]

Restoration and land grant

In 1660, the monarchy in England and the proprietor's government in Maryland were restored. Lord Baltimore granted Stone as much land as he could ride around in a day, as a reward for Stone's faithful service. Stone concentrated on developing his plantation at Poynton Manor in what is now Charles County, Maryland, where he died in about 1660.[1]


Stone's great-grandson, David (born 1709), greatly expanded the value of the estate at Poynton and returned the family to prominence.[4] William Stone's great-great-grandsons made major contributions to the foundation of Maryland as an American state: Thomas Stone signed the Declaration of Independence, Michael Jenifer Stone represented Maryland in the First United States Congress, John Hoskins Stone was Governor of Maryland 1794–97, and William Murray Stone was the Episcopal Bishop of Baltimore. A great-great-great grandson, Barton W. Stone, was a prominent early leader of the Restoration Movement.[5]

39643 William Sumpter was born Abt. 1692 in England, and died 07 Jul 1752 in Virginia691. He married Elizabeth.

Notes for William Sumpter:


(From materials received from John Alexander Sumpter, 1952/1932, in the form of notes in long hand by Lois Sumpter)

"The first Sumpters that came to North America were three brothers sent for back in England to do some fine mechanical work for the colonies or English Government. They were Father's Great Great Uncles (brothers of George Sumpter (1)). They fought in the Revolutionary War. One was quite a commandeer in that war. Our grandfather (George Washington Sumpter) was in Washington's Army. Father (Alexander Sumpter) was carried there in his mother's arms to see his Grandfather or our Great Great Grandfather (Henry Sumpter)**
Alexander Sumpter, Sr went to the Black Hawk Indian War in 1832 and was one of a chosen party of 22 to cross the Mississippi River and follow a small band of Indians that succeeded in crossing. He was in the last battle fought in the war.

He was in St. Louis when there were but a few houses in it and no good ones mostly Dobies and rock huts.

His Uncle John Sumpter served 3 terms in Washington's Army in the Revolutionary War. Uncle John Sumpter's son Buckhanan Sumpter was also Captain of a cannon in the Revolutionary War under Washington. Captain Buck Sumpter disobeyed orders and won a battle. He was ordered to spike his cannon, but his judgment told him victory was near and he continued firing and when the smoke cleared away the enemy was running, but not until the Americans had burned some of their property.
Our Great Grand Father was Henry Sumpter and his wife was Agness Dillon. They came from Virginia. They were tailors. They were "First Families of Virginia".
Our grand Father, George Washington Sumpter and his wife, Nancy Powers, came from East Tennessee.

John Sumpter married and lived in Souther Illinois. His children were: Ben Sumpter, Buck Sumpter, John Sumpter, Danial Sumpter. Uncle John became a very wealthy man.

He (John Sumpter) served three terms in Revolutionary War.
His son Buck Sumpter was commanding officer in that war.
Danial Sumpter was with his father in the BlackHawk war.
Polly sumptere married Robert Chopin
Sally Sumpter married Absalem Adams
Their son Jessie Adams lived at Marion Station, Marion County, Oregon

Our Uncles and Aunts
Father's (Alexander, Jr) Half-brothers:
John sumpter
Henry Sumpter
Abraham Sumpter

John Sumpter married twice.
His first wife was Nancy Caldwell

**Think this is misinterpretation of notes. George was born in 1776, so more likely that Henry was in Washington's Army, and George was carried there as a baby, not George's son.
"First Families of Virginia" states that Henry was a tailor and well-to-do, with fine property

This generation is based only on hypotheses.

As written by Jane Sumpter Malone-George on 28 Januray 1998:

"Thanks to Jim Landrum and his research, we have George Sumpter coming to America as an indentured servant 20 June 1721. Also, Jim found records showing a George Sumpter was christened to William and Elizabeth Sumpter 9 Feb 1699 in St. Brides Parish Fleet Street, London. The same parish from which George leaves for America. I had found the item about George the Immigrant in a book, Emigrants from England to America, 1718-1759 by Jack and Marian Kaminkow.

The Kaminkows listed James Gerald as the English Agent who signed George to the indenture. It is my understanding that the Agents then sold the indentures to men in the colonies which could account for not finding any record of a James Gerald in early Virginia.

The notebook written by Alexander Sumpter, Sr., of Missouri and later of Washington, stated that "Gr.Gr. Grandfather was a George Sumpter, an Englishman, a tailor by trade, a brother of Sumpters
sent to America as carpenters by the English Government to perform a fine piece of mechanical work."

I would like some comments on this: could William Sumpter, the father of General Sumter and family, Richard Sumpter of Manikintowne, and George, the immigrant, all be brothers who came
to America during the early 1700s?

As Jim Landrum wrote, Henry Sumpter who married Agnes Dillon did not name known children Richard. But John of Chesterfield did have a son Richard according to Curtis Sumpter's papers. George who married Elizabeth Gross and lived in Floyd Co,VA, did name a son Richard.

The father of the General did not have a known son named Richard. I wonder if we can begin to organize these very early Sumpters and their ancestors by such a simple method as the names they gave their children? Of course, this is not proof but it could give us clues for further search.

Please, let's have some thoughts about this.

Thanks Jane Sumpter Malone-George.

39649 William the Lion (Mediaeval Gaelic: Uilliam mac Eanric; Modern Gaelic: Uilleam mac Eanraig), sometimes styled William I, also known by the nickname Garbh, "the Rough",[1] (c. 1143 – 4 December 1214) reigned as King of the Scots from 1165 to 1214. He had the second-longest reign in Scottish history before the Act of Union with England in 1707. James VI (reigned 1567–1625) would have the longest.


He became king following his brother Malcolm IV's death on 9 December 1165 and was crowned on 24 December 1165.

In contrast to his deeply religious, frail brother, William was powerfully built, redheaded, and headstrong. He was an effective monarch whose reign was marred by his ill-fated attempts to regain control of Northumbria from the Normans.

Traditionally, William is credited with founding Arbroath Abbey, the site of the later Declaration of Arbroath.

He was not known as "The Lion" during his own lifetime, and the title did not relate to his tenacious character or his military prowess. It was attached to him because of his flag or standard, a red lion rampant with a forked tail (queue fourchâee) on a yellow background. This (with the substitution of a 'double tressure fleury counter-fleury' border instead of an orle) went on to become the Royal standard of Scotland, still used today but quartered with those of England and of Ireland. It became attached to him because the chronicler John of Fordun called him the "Lion of Justice".

William was grandson of David I of Scotland. He also inherited the title of Earl of Northumbria in 1152 from his father, Henry of Scotland. However he had to give up this title to King Henry II of England in 1157. This caused trouble after William became king, since he spent a lot of effort trying to regain Northumbria.

William was a key player in the Revolt of 1173–1174 against Henry II. In 1174, at the Battle of Alnwick, during a raid in support of the revolt, William recklessly charged the English troops himself, shouting, "Now we shall see which of us are good knights!" He was unhorsed and captured by Henry's troops led by Ranulf de Glanvill and taken in chains to Newcastle, then Northampton, and then transferred to Falaise in Normandy. Henry then sent an army to Scotland and occupied it. As ransom and to regain his kingdom, William had to acknowledge Henry as his feudal superior and agree to pay for the cost of the English army's occupation of Scotland by taxing the Scots. The church of Scotland was also subjected to that of England. This he did by signing the Treaty of Falaise. He was then allowed to return to Scotland. In 1175 he swore fealty to Henry II at York Castle.

The humiliation of the Treaty of Falaise triggered a revolt in Galloway which lasted until 1186, and prompted construction of a castle at Dumfries. In 1179, meanwhile, William and his brother David personally led a force northwards into Easter Ross, establishing two further castles, and aiming to discourage the Norse Earls of Orkney from expanding beyond Caithness.

A further rising in 1181 involved Donald Meic Uilleim, descendant of King Duncan II. Donald briefly took over Ross; not until his death (1187) was William able to reclaim Donald's stronghold of Inverness. Further royal expeditions were required in 1197 and 1202 to fully neutralise the Orcadian threat.

The Treaty of Falaise remained in force for the next fifteen years. Then the English king Richard the Lionheart, needing money to take part in the Third Crusade, agreed to terminate it in return for 10,000 silver marks, on 5 December 1189.

William attempted to purchase Northumbria from Richard in 1194, as he had a strong claim over it. However, his offer of 15,000 marks was rejected due to wanting the castles within the lands, which Richard was not willing to give.[2]

Despite the Scots regaining their independence, Anglo-Scottish relations remained tense during the first decade of the 13th century. In August 1209 King John decided to flex the English muscles by marching a large army to Norham (near Berwick), in order to exploit the flagging leadership of the ageing Scottish monarch. As well as promising a large sum of money, the ailing William agreed to his elder daughters marrying English nobles and, when the treaty was renewed in 1212, John apparently gained the hand of William's only surviving legitimate son, and heir, Alexander, for his eldest daughter, Joan.

Despite continued dependence on English goodwill, William's reign showed much achievement. He threw himself into government with energy and diligently followed the lines laid down by his grandfather, David I. Anglo-French settlements and feudalization were extended, new burghs founded, criminal law clarified, the responsibilities of justices and sheriffs widened, and trade grew. Arbroath Abbey was founded (1178), and the bishopric of Argyll established (c.1192) in the same year as papal confirmation of the Scottish church by Pope Celestine III.

According to legend, "William is recorded in 1206 as curing a case of scrofula by his touching and blessing a child with the ailment whilst at York.[3] William died in Stirling in 1214 and lies buried in Arbroath Abbey. His son, Alexander II, succeeded him as king, reigning from 1214 to 1249.

Marriage and issue

Due to the terms of the Treaty of Falaise, Henry II had the right to choose William's bride. As a result, William married Ermengarde de Beaumont, a great-granddaughter of King Henry I of England, at Woodstock Palace in 1186. Edinburgh Castle was her dowry. The marriage was not very successful, and it was many years before she bore him an heir. William and Ermengarde's children were:

Margaret (1193–1259), married Hubert de Burgh, 1st Earl of Kent.
Isabel (1195–1253), married Roger Bigod, 4th Earl of Norfolk and Robert "of Fur Fan" De Ros, Sir Knight and had issue.
Alexander II of Scotland (1198–1249).
Marjorie (1200 – 17 November 1244),[4] married Gilbert Marshal, 4th Earl of Pembroke.
Out of wedlock, William I had numerous children, their descendants being among those who would lay claim to the Scottish crown.

By an unnamed daughter of Adam de Hythus:

Margaret, married Eustace de Vesci, Lord of Alnwick.[5]

By Isabel d'Avenel:

Robert de London[6]
Henry de Galightly, father of Patrick Galightly one of the competitors to the crown in 1291[7]

39652 William Thorne Jr., son of the patentee and himself a Remonstrance signer married Winifred ------- and had three sons, William (The third of that name), John and Richard. The baptismal records of the Dutch Church identify him as "Wilt Toorn". This branch of the family migrated to Madnan's Neck (Great Neck) and is readily distinguishable from the families of the other three sons of the patentee, John, Joseph and Samuel who all remained in Flushing or a longer period.

William Jr. (the signer) is listed among the inhabitants of Hempstead in 1673, as a freeholder in 1685 and had already acquired substantial land there in 1683 as evidenced by a deed from Edmund Titus to "Will Thorne of Madnan's Neck" (Queens County Deeds Liber A, page 143). His three sons continued to add to the family's property at Great Neck. Their father, possibly in contemplation of death, deeded to his son Richard on February 24, 1698 "all and every parcel of land I have on said Great Neck together with all the housing (as above Liber A, page 165). Richard Thorne during the previous year had bought other property at Great Neck from Daniel Whitehead of Jamaica and Samuel Moore of Newtown (supra Liber B, page 77).

39657 WILLIAM was born circa 1709. William died circa 1785. He married SARAH ALLEN circa 1730 (or Goochland Co., VA). Sarah was born after 1699/0.

Cumberland Co. VA was formed from Goochland Co., VA in 1749 so William did not move.

One VERY curious note about William and his wife, Sarah Allen. They named one of their children Shadrach. Where did this name come from, as it was not found in ancestors of William Woodson's family, but is found in the MIMS family. Robert Woodson, brother of William, had a daughter, Elizabeth who married Shadrack Mims as his 2nd wife. Elizabeth was the great grandmother of Jesse and Frank James. (The following spelled and written as in original form)

Will of William Woodson : "To son Jesse Woodson by Deed such a part of my estate as I intended for him; remainder of my estate now in possession of Jessee Woodson to be equally divided between my grandson Drury Woodson the son of Drury and my grandson William the son of Shadrack. To Drury and William 125 acres part of tract that I give Shadrack Woodson. Drury Woodson executor One of the witnesses was Mary Woodson - The Valentine Papers list the will as Proved 27 June 1785 and dated 24 July 1784. ** GENEALOGICAL RECORDS OF BUCKINGHAM COUNTY, VIRGINIA, by Edythe R. Whitley, pub. 1984, p. 114:

William Woodson, late of Buckingham County, now of Cumberland County, owned in fee simple 200 acres of land on the branches of Randolph's Creek in said Buckingham County. The land is now in the possession of John Bagby. Drury Woodson, son of William, claimed the land was his by reason of a gift, Jesse Woodson, another son of William, claimed his father had promised his 100 acres on the occasion of his (Jesse's) marriage. An agreement was reached between William, Drury, and Jesse. Also mentioned was Shadrach Woodson, another son of William. The agreement was signed by William Woodson on 17 March 1783.

39660 William was the son of John le Boteler and Alice Plumpton.

Sir William married Elizabeth Standish, daughter of Sir Robert Standish of Standish, knight on April 4, 1404.

William was one of the forty- six knights made a knight of bath at the coronation of Henry IV on 12 Oct 1399. Among these knights was also Sir John Ashton of Ashton-under-Lyne and Richard Beauchamp, then only 19 years of age. In 1407, he was elected and served as a knight of the shire for Lancashire.

Sir William Boteler joined the king, August 1415, with his retinue of nine men-at-arms in his campaign in France. At a siege of Harflete in France, the English camp, sitting in the marshes, was struck with a disease killing about five thousand men. Among those who died were Sir William le Boteler, as well as Thomas earl of Arundel, Michael de la Pole, earl of Suffolk, the lords Morris and Brunel, Richard Courtenay bishop of Norwich, Sir Roger Trumpington, Sir John Southworth and Sir Hugh Standish.

39665 William Willoughby, 5th Baron Willoughby de Eresby KG (c.1370 - 4 December 1409) was an English baron.


William Willoughby was the son of Robert Willoughby, 4th Baron Willoughby de Eresby, by his first wife,[1] Margery la Zouche, the daughter of William la Zouche, 2nd Baron Zouche of Harringworth, by Elizabeth de Roos, daughter of William de Roos, 2nd Baron de Roos of Hemsley, and Margery de Badlesmere (130-–1363), eldest sister and co-heir of Giles de Badlesmere, 2nd Baron Badlesmere. He had four brothers: Robert, Sir Thomas (died c. 20 August 1417), John and Brian.[2]

After the death of Margery la Zouche, his father the 4th Baron married, before 9 October 1381, Elizabeth le Latimer (d. 5 November 1395), suo jure 5th Baroness Latimer, daughter of William Latimer, 4th Baron Latimer, and widow of John Neville, 3rd Baron Neville de Raby, by whom the 4th Baron had a daughter, Margaret Willoughby, who died unmarried. By her first marriage Elizabeth Latimer had a son, John Neville, 6th Baron Latimer (c.1382 – 10 December 1430), and a daughter, Elizabeth Neville, who married her step-brother, Sir Thomas Willoughby (died c. 20 August 1417).[3]


The 4th Baron died on 9 August 1396, and Willoughby inherited the title as 5th Baron, and was given seisin of his lands on 27 September.[4]

Hicks notes that the Willoughby family had a tradition of military service, but that the 5th Baron 'lived during an intermission in foreign war and served principally against the Welsh and northern rebels of Henry IV'.[5] Willoughby joined Bolingbroke, the future King Henry IV, soon after his landing at Ravenspur, was present at the abdication of Richard II in the Tower on 29 September 1399, and was one of the peers who consented to King Richard's imprisonment. In the following year he is said to taken part in Henry IV's expedition to Scotland.[6]

In 1401 he was admitted to the Order of the Garter, and on 13 October 1402 was among those appointed to negotiate with the Welsh rebel, Owain Glyndwr. When Henry IV's former allies, the Percys, rebelled in 1403, Willoughby remained loyal to the King, and in July of that year was granted lands that had been in the custody of Henry Percy (Hotspur), who was killed at the Battle of Shrewsbury on 21 July 1403. Willoughby was appointed to the King's council in March 1404. On 21 February 1404 he was among the commissioners appointed to expel aliens from England.[7]

In 1405 Hotspur's father, Henry Percy, 1st Earl of Northumberland, again took up arms against the King, joined by Lord Bardolf, and on 27 May Archbishop Scrope, perhaps in conjunction with Northumberland's rebellion, assembled a force of some 8000 men on Shipton Moor. Scrope was tricked into disbanding his army on 29 May, and he and his allies were arrested. Henry IV denied them trial by their peers, and Willoughby was among the commissioners[8] who sat in judgment on Scrope in his own hall at his manor of Bishopthorpe, some three miles south of York. The Chief Justice, Sir William Gascoigne, refused to participate in such irregular proceedings and to pronounce judgment on a prelate, and it was thus left to the lawyer Sir William Fulthorpe to condemn Scrope to death for treason. Scrope was beheaded under the walls of York before a great crowd on 8 June 1405, 'the first English prelate to suffer judicial execution'.[9] On 12 July 1405 Willoughby was granted lands forfeited by the rebel Earl of Northumberland.[10]

In 1406 Willoughby was again appointed to the Council. On 7 June and 22 December of that year he was among the lords who sealed the settlement of the crown.[11]

Marriages and issue

Willoughby married twice:

Firstly, soon after 3 January 1383, Lucy le Strange, daughter of Roger le Strange, 5th Baron Strange of Knockin, by Aline, daughter of Edmund FitzAlan, 9th Earl of Arundel, by whom he had two sons and three daughters:[12]

Robert Willoughby, 6th Baron Willoughby de Eresby, who married firstly, Elizabeth Montagu, and secondly, Maud Stanhope.

Sir Thomas Willoughby, who married Joan Arundel, daughter and co-heiress of Sir Richard Arundel by his wife, Alice. Their descendants, who include Catherine Willoughby, Duchess of Suffolk, inherited the Barony. Catherine became the 12th Baroness and the title descended through her children by her second husband, Richard Bertie.

Elizabeth Willoughby, who married Henry Beaumont, 5th Baron Beaumont (d.1413).

Margery Willoughby, who married William FitzHugh, 4th Baron FitzHugh. Their son, the 5th Baron, would marry Lady Alice Neville, sister of Warwick, the Kingmaker. Alice was a grandniece of Willoughby's second wife, Lady Joan Holland. The 5th Baron and his wife Alice were great-grandparents to queen consort Catherine Parr.

Margaret Willoughby, who married Sir Thomas Skipwith.

Secondly to Lady Joan Holland (d. 12 April 1434), widow of Edmund of Langley, 1st Duke of York, and daughter of Thomas Holland, 2nd Earl of Kent, by Lady Alice FitzAlan, daughter of Richard FitzAlan, 10th Earl of Arundel, by whom he had no issue.[13] After Willoughby's death his widow married thirdly Henry Scrope, 3rd Baron Scrope of Masham, who was beheaded on 5 August 1415 after the discovery of the Southampton Plot on the eve of King Henry V's invasion of France. She married fourthly, Henry Bromflete, Lord Vescy (d. 16 January 1469).[14]

39667 William's fourth wife...Lois Kochanski Estes, Wilmouth (I4914)
39668 William's obituary in portion reads as such:

"On the Saturday preceding his death, whilst returning from Church he received a stroke of appoplexy, and fell suddenly from his horse, from whence he was conveyed to his own house and survived in much pain until the following Thursday." His obituary described him in glowing terms as a beloved member of the community, endeared as a father and friend, and "he is gone to reap the reward of a well spent life, and the tears of his friends and the regrets of a bereaved community attended him to his grave."

William and Lydia did have 7 children:
John Calvin Mynatt b/ 31 July 1780
Richard Mynatt b/ 4 May 1782
Joseph Mynatt b/ 17 Mar. 1784
William C. Mynatt b/ ca 1786-88
Annie Mynatt b/ 5 Jan. 1790
Susan Mynatt b/ 17 Jan. 1792
Lydia Mynatt b/ 25 Nov. 1794; d/ 20 Dec. 1800

IMO, it appears that William C., son of Richard came directly to the area of what is now Knox County, TN, and at that time may have included some of what is now a portion Union and/or Grainger Counties. There are Mynatts all over Eastern Tennessee (as well as all over the world), most of them with a straight line back to Richard Mynatt, the first Mynatt in the Americas, through his son William C. Mynatt. In my line of the famiily, even the given names are repeated from those first generations in America: John, Calvin, Harry, Joseph, William, Bill . . . just to name a few. All of us have a family heritage to be proud of. We come from a long line of hard-working, loving and caring family. It is a trait that seems to carry over in our Mynatt genes. I'll have to say I've never met a Mynatt I didn't like.

Can any one out there do two will lookups for me? I would love to know what's in the will of Joseph Clark, 1834, Will Book 1, Page 83 and Elizabeth Clarke's will, 1837, Will Book 1, page 202, both in Warren County, TN.

I live in Springfield, MO and am searching for parents of my gr. gr. grandfather, James Clark. James' siblings were William, Samuel, Thomas, Stewart, John, Benjamin, Alexander, Deborah and Sarah (Sally). James lived in Warren Co., TN before moving to Madison Co., AR ca 1831 where he and his wife, Agnes Henderson Clark, both passed away.

Any help appreciated.

39689 Windsor Castle is a royal residence at Windsor in the English county of Berkshire. It is notable for its long association with the English and later British royal family and for its architecture. The original castle was built in the 11th century after the Norman invasion of England by William the Conqueror. Since the time of Henry I, it has been used by all monarchs, and is the longest-occupied palace in Europe. The castle's lavish early 19th-century State Apartments were described by the art historian Hugh Roberts as "a superb and unrivalled sequence of rooms widely regarded as the finest and most complete expression of later Georgian taste".[1] Inside the castle walls is the 15th-century St George's Chapel, considered by the historian John Martin Robinson to be "one of the supreme achievements of English Perpendicular Gothic" design.
