42133 We do not know who Mary Cave's father was but we presume he was one of a few men named Cave in early Virginia. The most likely candidate is John Cave [1678] who twice applied for a land patent with John Echols. Mary was said to be born about 1650 and died after 1712 Cave, Mary (I20052)

Rollin Gold

5 Aug 2012

I sent Rollin a slate of William's antecedents that I found on the web. Here is his reply and an opinion with which I totally agree;

"As far as William Hansard's ancestors....I only feel comfortable going back to his grandparents, Richard Hansard and Bathsheba Archer. There is just so much "junk" on the web to confuse and mislead a person, it isn't even funny.
I am trying to track down the source of a birthday for Martha Christian. When I contact a person who has it in their records, I get the same response....."I'm not sure where it came from."
That's part of my problem with the WWW, everybody thinks they are a genealogist...but they don't do any research."

Hansard, William (I32758)
 
42137 We know Raleigh and Lazarus are still in the Virginia/NC area in May of 1777 when they signed the following oath of Allegiance in Pittsylvania County, which borders Halifax Co., Va. and Caswell Co., NC:

"I do swear or affirm that I renounce and refuse all allegiance to George the Third, King of Great Britain, his heirs and successors and that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to the commonwealth of Virginia as a free and independent state and that I will not at any time do or cause to be done any matter or thing that will be prejudicial or injurious to the freedom and independence thereof as declared by congress and also that I will discover and make known to some one justice of the peace for the said state all treasons or traitorous conspiracies which I now or hereafter shall know to be formed against this or any of the United States of America."

After Raleigh had left Caswell County, NC, the name of Rawley Dodson shows up there once again in the records in matters pertaining to the estate of John Moore, Jr (1786-1791).

A list of accounts included the name of Rawley Dodson in Caswell Co., Will Book C in June court 1792.

The marriage records of both Halifax County, Virginia and Caswell County, North Carolina, respectively, are intact and neither holds a record for Lazarus Dodson’s marriage to Jane whose surname is unknown. Lazarus likely married her after his move to the frontier of then North Carolina, now Tennessee.

42139 We may not know where Nicholas was born, or when, but we know when and where he died, because his will called for him to be buried in the churchyard of "Saynt Leonard in the parisshe of Deale." Estes, Nicholas (I37309)
 
42140 We now have a change of surname because their son, George, 5th Duke of Marlborough, took the additional name of Churchill by royal license in 1817. The Churchill surname is interesting in its origin and could perhaps be the subject of another article. Burke’s Peerage gives the family origin as coming from Gitto de Leon whose son was Wandril de Leon, Lord of Courcil. The name then changed from "de Courcil" to "de Chirchil" and ultimately "Churchill". But I digress.

42143 We, Terry DeBencik and Laurie Hensley, began our successful collaboration in 1984, providing association management for the Old Sacramento Historic District.

In that role, DeBencik & Hensley produced literally hundreds of events, including the annual 3rd of July Fireworks and parade, the Collectors' Fairs, Jazz in the Park concerts, Mardi Gras, the Waterfront Art Fest, and the Tomato Festival. Soon we added events for other organizations, including the Pacific Rim Street Fest and the Festival de la Familia.

Moving beyond the streets of Old Sacramento, we added such events as the California International Marathon, the Santa Parade, the Sacramento Zoo Zoom, the Garlic Gala, and Sacramento Reads.

42145 WEBB, DYER
I am looking for information on a William DYER who was married to Margaret ROBB WEBB, a widow from SC. I believe William DYER was a widower but do not know that wife's name. William and Margaret married between 1813 and 1830. William was born in Lincoln Co. NC and moved to White Co. TN <1813>.William's father's name was Samuel and two of his brothers were John and Samuel. I believe William was deceased by 1830. Of course he could have moved I guess but his brothers John and Samuel were still in White Co. TN after 1830. Their history together shows that they had always lived in close proximity to each other. Margaret WEBB DYER had 4 or 5 children from her first marriage to James WEBB in York Co. SC. The children's names were Sarah, James, Joseph, Theodorick and possibly one named Mary. Unknown whether or not William and Margaret had any children together.
If anyone has any information at all about these people I would appreciate very much hearing from you.

"Possible Lead for Thomas Hale"

One must read the entire message string

Message Boards - Ancestry.com

Do you have any other information about William Joseph Hale? The fact that he named a son "Willis" may be significant. There were two Hale men, both descendants of John Hale of Bent Mountain, who lived in Mercer County, KY and who had wives named Willis.

David:

According to this the original surname may have been Heald and they may have originated in Cheshire [adjacent to Wales]. I will follow this thread and notify you as to my findings.

42177 Well, you (unnamed correspondant) are mostly accurate concerning the Girlington name and the info on Thurland, but not quite.

The original name was Gyrlyngton and S L O W L Y became Girlington and finally after the 1800 US census, Gillentine.The name Gyrlyngton was, according to The Yorkshire Place Name Society has identified the Gyrlyngton family to have derived it's name from the "tun" or "town" of Gyrla, a Saxon settlement of early Yorkshire prior to the Norman invasion. This was also a period of time before surnames were used. The first recorded Gyrlyngton was Waleran De Gyrlyngton b: abt. 1058 . Waleran was Lord of Gyrlyngton-juxta-Wycliffe near Richmondshire during the reigns of Henry I and Stephen (1100-1154).Waleran may well have been a descendant of one of William the Conqueror's invading Normans, most of whom were given land for their support.

As for Thurland Castle:

Sir John Girlington, b: 1560, was Lord of Hackforth and Hutton Longvillers in Richmondshire. He exchanged the manor of Hutton Longvillers with Francis Tunstall of Wycliffe in Lancashire for the castle and manor of Thurland and the manor and advows on of the Church of Tunstall in 1605. He died in Thurland Castle on 28 Feb.1613. Before his death, he conveyed the Manor of Hackforth to his brother Thomas.

Sir John Girlington (son of Nicholas)b: July 19, 1613 at Kirkby, Malham, Yorkshire, d: March 1645 in Melton Mobray, England +Katherine Girlington (his 5th cousin - daughter of William Girlington) b: 1617 in Southcave, Yorkshire. Made knight, major general, and sheriff of Lancshire by Charles I on the 6th of June, 1642. Killed in the King's Service at Melton Mowbray (may have actually died a few weeks later due to gange green from a musket ball in his foot). He became heir to the family fortunes after the death of his brother Josias in youth. Like all his predecessors, he was a Roman Catholic; therefore a staunch supporter of Charles I during the English Civil War. After a seven week siege on the castle, he surrendered Thurland Castle to the Protestant Parlimentary forces who backed the Cromwell lead Civil War / Revolt - approximately in 1644.

Sir John's son was the last Girlington to actually inhabit the castle or the castle grounds.John Girlington b: July 9, 1634d: 1706 m: abt 1674 +Margaret Duckett b: abt 1638, Westmoreland, England.Apparently allowed to reside in Thurland Castle for some time after the war ended.However, most likely lost nobility title and ownership of the castle and lands.Margaret was pledged to Sir John Girlington's male heir as part of an alliance between the Bellingham/Duckett families and the Girlington families.Bellingham was strategically located near the Scottish border to the north. (Margaret was John's 1st wife and Nicholas was the only child. She most likely died in childbirth or from complications shortly thereafter.2d wife Margaret Curven produced 5 daughters)Ironically, Margaret Duckett was a descendant of the Tunstall and Bellingham families.The Tunstalls were the original owners of Thurland Castle, as well as the original grant of 1004 acres around the castle.What's more ironic, after the leases to the castle paid of the fines on Margaret and John Girlington for being "Jacobites" (supporters of James II and the Stewart line), John was allowed to live on the grounds but not in the castle ... the Tunstall family was eventually granted back the castle.John Girlington died almost penniless.The only recognition remaining today of the Girlington family and Thurland castle is a small gold plaque that the friars placed in the small church on the Thurland grounds .. it merely bares his name, birth in 1634, Lord of Thurland Castle, and that he died in 1706.

So as castles go, the Girlington family actually lived in Thurland for a relatively short period ... 1605 to sometime before 1706.

Yes, Nicholas did have a drawing of the remaining wing. Since he was born some years after the siege destroyed the rest of the castle, that wing is all he knew.It was the billiard room, what we would call a den, dining hall, smaller ante rooms, and a kitchen on the first floor.The upstairs area of that wing was merely sleeping quarters.I have a reprint of that drawing (first floor only).

Today, the castle has been rennovated into apartments.The apartments are 3 and 4 bedroom settings.The price range is between $500,000 and $1,000,000 US.The first person to purchase a 4 bedroom unit will be declared Lord of the Manor.

Oh, the sources for the information:

Ruth Harrison Hennessee Interview | 5 Mar 2011 | 580.353.0934. She is amazing - still "sharp as a tack" and remembers so much of her Hennessee & Harrison families. What a wealth of information...will continue my interviews with her.

Ruth was friends with Helen, daughter of his 2nd marriage, and tells me that Jim Peck was mean and abusive - understatement as he later murdered Faye and Howard Reynolds in the Lee Street residence.

Faye's children were adopted - still searching for any of these descendants...DAH
