41011 Upholland is a civil parish and village in West Lancashire, England, approximately 3 miles east of Skelmersdale and 4 miles west of Wigan. The population of the civil parish at the 2011 census was 7,376.


The locality was referred to as Holland in 1086 in the Domesday Book.[3] The name Upholland differentiates it from another place locally called Downholland, 10 miles to the west (on the other side of Ormskirk). Both derive their names from the manor of Holland, a possession of the Holland family until 1534.

41077 Van Triplett Bivans

Van Triplett Bivans, 68, passed away peacefully on Oct. 12, 2017, with his wife, Pam, and his family at his side, while traveling in Texas as part of their long dreamed of retirement plan of touring the country in their RV.

Van, born on March 23, 1949, in Newton, Mass., was the son of Ernest Bivans and Nan Burns as the middle child of three.
In his youth,he was active in local theater, including plays at Santa Barbara Jr. High and at the Park Theater. He attended Santa Barbara High School, where he also performed in theater and choirs with a wonderful singing voice, and was a DJ at KIST radio.

His college years were spent at New Mexico State University at Las Cruces, NM.

After college, he joined the Air Force and was stationed first at Vandenberg AFB, then transferred to Iraklion AFB in Crete for three years where he enjoyed diving and earned a private pilot’s license. He then spent a year traveling Europe in a VW van.

On returning to Santa Barbara, he was hired in 1978 as the manager of the Hollister Inn, now the Super 8 Motel, where he worked for 31 years.

He married Cindy Cofiell in 1979. They had met at a singles square dance in Santa Barbara. They loved to dance and competed in swing dance competitions. They had two loving daughters, Monica in 1981 and Crystal in 1983.

In 1989, he married Pam Pickens whom he also met at a square dance. They continued their love of square dancing, round dancing and swing, traveling around the state in their RV to dance conventions.

Van and Pam were very involved in the Lompoc Foursquare Church. He and Pam hosted youth and community events such as post-game high school gatherings, Special Olympics car shows, Halloween parties, Flower Festival events; Van even babysat in the nursery.

Orchid growing became a passion for Van. His yard was full of the most unusual varieties. He joined the local orchid club, and they often entered their club’s display at the annual Santa Barbara Orchid show, bringing home trophies.

Like his Dad, he was an accomplished carpenter, building wine racks, remodeling his kitchen, building his orchid house in the back yard, and making crosses for the church.

Van enthusiastically pursued sports — surfing as a young man, then archery competitions, skiing with family in Colorado and California, fishing, rollerblading, windsurfing, kayaking and river rafting.

In 2010, Van was hired at All American Trailers North where he excelled with his management and sales skills. With his love of all things trailers and camping, the job was perfect for him.

He retired in 2015, looking forward to his long-held dream of traveling the country and camp hosting in their new 38-foot fifth-wheel RV.

They enjoyed this dream for a year, starting in Oregon, returning to Bakersfield for the birth of his third grandchild, then on to Colorado, then, sadly, ending in Texas.

Van leaves behind his beloved wife, Pam; his adored daughters, Monica Hennessee (Andrew), Crystal Bivans and Crystal Fielding; three grandchildren, Scarlett Hennessee, 3, Everett Hennessee, 7 months, and Blake Gagosian, 13, (son of Crystal); brother Bruce Bivans (Leslie Brueckner) and sister Patricia Dixon (Howard Smith).

A celebration of life will be held at Lompoc Foursquare Church at a later date when Pam is able to return home.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Lompoc Foursquare Church, 137 No. “C” St., Lompoc, CA 93436.

41091 Verney is the name of an English family that traces back around eight centuries. It first settled at Fleetmarston in Buckinghamshire, then at Pendley in Hertfordshire, and finally at Middle Claydon which the family purchased in the 1460s in Buckinghamshire and where descendants still live in Claydon House.

Early History

The Verney's family's pedigree goes back to Ralph de Verney (fl. 1216–1223), but the fortunes of the family were made by Sir Ralph Verney (c. 1410-1478). After settling in Buckinghamshire in the 13th century, the family had purchased Middle Claydon by the 1460s and it was during this period that Sir Ralph Verney became Lord Mayor of London in 1465 and M.P. for the city in 1472.[1] Sir Ralph Verney's eldest son, Sir John Verney, married Margaret, heiress of Sir Robert Whittingham of Pendley. In 1525, Sir Ralph Verney's fourth son, of the same name, married Elizabeth, one of the six co-heiresses of John, Lord Braye.

Involvement in the English Civil War

Sir Edmund Verney of Pendley (died 1600) left two sons, half-brothers, Sir Francis Verney (1584–1615), who became a soldier of fortune and a buccaneer, converted to Islam and died at Messina in hospital in extreme poverty, and Sir Edmund Verney (1590–1642) of Middle Claydon. Sir Edmund accompanied Prince Charles and Buckingham on the abortive mission to Madrid in 1623, and was knight-marshal to King Charles I. When the English Civil War broke out the royal standard was entrusted to him at Nottingham, and while defending it he was slain at Edgehill in 1642. His eldest son, Sir Ralph Verney (1613–1696), 1st baronet, sat for Aylesbury in both the Short and the Long Parliaments. He took the side of the parliament at the outset of the Civil War, but went abroad in 1643 rather than sign the Covenant, and his estates were sequestrated in 1646. He returned to England in 1653, and, though he refused to act against Oliver Cromwell, was subsequently reconciled to the Restoration government. His brother, Sir Edmund (1616-–1649), had taken the king's side, and commanded the troops of the Royalist infantry at the Siege of Drogheda and was slain during the final assault.

18th century

Sir Ralph Verney's estates and honours descended to his son, Sir John (c. 1640-1717), who was created Viscount Fermanagh in the Irish peerage in 1703 and was father of Sir Ralph Verney, created Earl Verney in 1743. Earl Verney's sister, Lady Margaret Verney, by her marriage with Sir Sir Thomas Cave, 3rd Baronet, linked the Verney family a second time with the barony of Braye, and the present (as of 1911) Lord Braye's surname is Verney-Cave. Earl Verney's eldest son, John Verney, Viscount Fermanagh, predeceased him in 1737, leaving a posthumous daughter, Lady Mary Verney (1737-–1810), who was created Baroness Fermanagh in 1792. His second son, Ralph, 2nd Earl Verney (c. 1712-–1791), was a friend of Edmund Burke, who entered parliament as Verney's nominee for Wendover. Earl Verney was an ardent supporter of the Whig interest, but received no reward from the party leaders. He rebuilt Claydon House with great splendour from the plans of John Adam, but, with his financial ventures, this brought him to bankruptcy. He died with no children of his own.

Verney Papers: Notes of Proceedings in the Long Parliament by Sir Ralph Verney, printed by the Camden Society.
The present Verney family, of Claydon Hall, Buckinghamshire, is descended in the male line from Felix Calvert (1596-–1674) of Little Hadham, Hertfordshire. The Right Hon. Sir Harry Verney, 2nd baronet (1801–-1894), was the son of General Sir Harry Calvert, G.C.B., created a baronet in 1818. He assumed the name of Verney in compliance with the will of Mary Verney, 1st Baroness Fermanagh, mentioned above. This lady died unmarried, leaving the paternal estates and the Verney portraits to her half-sister, Catherine Calvert (Mrs Wright), known thenceforward as Mrs Verney, on whose death in 1827 they came into the possession of her cousin, Sir Harry Calvert (Verney). Sir Harry Verney entered the British House of Commons for Buckingham in 1832, and remained a member of the House with two short intervals for fifty-two years. He married in 1835 Eliza, daughter of Admiral Sir George Johnstone Hope, K.C.B., M.P., and secondly Frances Parthenope Nightingale, sister of Florence Nightingale. Frances, Lady Verney, collected from the mass of papers preserved at Claydon House the Memoirs of the Verney Family during the Seventeenth Century, which contain a charming picture of the life and manners of the country gentlemen of that day. A second edition, abridged and corrected by Margaret Verney, appeared in 2 vols. in 1904. See also the Verney Papers edited for the Camden Society in 1853-–1854. An all-girls grammar school was named after her in the 1960s, the Lady Verney High School in High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire.

The Verneys who hold the barony of Willoughby de Broke descend from Richard Verney (1683–1711), who was granted the title 11th Baron Willoughby de Broke by the House of Lords in 1696. These Verneys had inherited the Verney estates at Compton Verney in Warwickshire through the marriage of Sir Richard Verney (died 1630) to Margaret Greville (died 1631), sister and heiress of Fulke Greville, 1st Baron Brooke. The male line was interrupted in 1853 when Robert John Barnard (1809–1862), nephew of the 16th baron, inherited the title. Robert took the title 17th Baron Willoughby de Broke, adopted the surname Verney and was the grandfather of Richard Greville Verney who sat in the House of Commons from 1895 to 1900 for SE Warwickshire and succeeded to the title in 1902. The family had left Compton Verney House by 1887 and it was finally sold in 1921.

John Cunningham II (1792-1858) was known during the early 19th Century in White and Warren Counties, TN as a Christian, Husband, Father, Pioneer, Patriot, Farmer, Tanner, Carpenter, Blacksmith, Distiller, Democrat and Grandfather.

There are a number of newspaper accounts, family trees, etc. which speculate that John Cunningham II (Captain in War of 1812) of Rock Island, Warren, TN is a son of another John Cunningham (Rev. War Soldier) of Viola, Warren, TN. Yet, the two communities, Rock Island and Viola, are at opposite ends of Warren county. Regretfully, the speculations appear incorrect due to the lack of "original source" documents and "first person" accounts.

The two John Cunninghams, in their individual migration to opposite ends of Warren County, TN, apparently used two different routes, separated by over a decade of time. (John II of Rock Island migrated from VA about 1804-1810 yet John of Viola moved with his second wife and family from NC about 1822). Some people believe that John II of Rock Island is perhaps one of the sons of John of Viola first marriage in Virginia. However, John of Viola's Last Will and Testament lists all his children by name (in Virginia and Tennessee- including one deceased) from both marriages and John Cunningham II of Rock Island is not listed.

As of October 2009, there are no known original source genealogy documentation (e.g. wills, land transfers, Family Bible, court records, etc.) nor genetic DNA test results which connect John Cunningham of Rock Island (Haplogroup I2b1) with John Cunningham of Viola.

In summary, the "overwhelming preponderance of evidence" indicates there is no direct family connection between the two John Cunninghams. However, the on-going search for the parents of John Cunningham II of Rock Island, Warren, TN continues with renewed energy and determination.

There are four historical-based "leads" requiring additional research:

(1) 1812 Tax List for Warren County
(2) The Blanche Bently papers as recorded in McMinnville at a Milestone, by Walter Womack, lists a JOHN CUNNINGHAM at Rock Island as an early settler ca 1797 in Rock Island, Warren County, TN.
(3) Goodspeeds History of Tennessee - Warren County, Highlights a {First name unknown}, CUNNINGHAM from VA who served in the Rev. War, father of John Cunningham II of Rock Island, Warren, TN (Captain in the War of 1812).
(4) page 211 includes an example of early court records in White County, TN listing JOHN CUNNINGHAM and others by name involved in land proceedings.
