42707 Worth investigating:

Notes on the Capshaw family of Warren & Dekalb Co, Tennessee

James Emory’s second wife Hester or Esther was probably a Capshaw by birth
(born in Rutherford County, North Carolina) but she could just be a daughter in
law of the Capshaws. The estate or will of Josiah Capshaw should be helpful in
settling this. She could even be an “extra” daughter fathered by a Cherokee girl
or a servant. Or a niece.

The pioneer, Josiah Capshaw, was a Revolutionary War soldier from Delaware
who settled on the North Carolina frontier (Rutherford County). His son Josiah
came to White or Warren County, Tennessee, during the War of 1812. On 16
June 1814 Josiah and wife Elizabeth Capshaw sold interest in land in Rutherford
County (NC) to John Moore (recorded 3 Nov 1815 White Co, TN). On 25 Jan
1822 William Franks and his two brothers were tried for the assault & battery of
Josiah Capshaw in White County. In 1836 Josiah and William Capshaw were on
the tax list for Warren County in that part that later became Dekalb County. The
Capshaw family became numerous in Dekalb County and fielded Confederate
and Union soldiers from that county.

Because Hester (Esther) Emory is shown as a Capshaw in the 1850 census it is
possible that she was an Emory (Hembree) by birth who married a Capshaw then
when she was widowed she (and some of her children) reverted back to the
Emory surname. This is possible because the Emory (Hembree) family was in
Rutherford County, NC when she was reaching marriage age (1830). The Esther
name runs in the Abraham Hembree family. This possibility should be further
investigated. I found no Capshaw in the 1830 or 1840 census that plots to Esther
and her children as well as the census for James Emery in Sevier County does.
She and her children match the James Emery family but if a Capshaw family is
discovered that provides a fit, it should be examined. Because the CARROLL
family can be found alongside the CAPSHAW family in Rutherford Co, NC,
it is more than likely that she was a Capshaw who married James Emery in
Rutherford County soon after the death of his first wife. This would be the
source for the Carroll David (David Carroll?) name of one of the sons.

42715 Writes Linda Faye Hennessee Taylor, his granddaughter;

"My grandfather James Robert Hennessee owned good farm land in White County. Tenant farmers and other people worked it for him. He was active in local government; serving as deputy sheriff, then sheriff and later serving two terms county trustee. He concluded his career serving as postmaster from 1933-45.

Early in the 1900's, when he was a deputy sheriff, a black man was in jail for murder. The negro watched as men began to build a scaffold. He asked Deputy Hennessee if the scaffold was being built to hang him.

Hennessee told him, "Yes, it is." The black man sorrowfully replied, "I don't thnk I can stand that."

The sheriff called Jim Hennessee in to tell him he had a job for him to do. Hennessee said, "You want me to hang 'Tom' don't you."

The high sheriff replied, "Yes."

Hennessee said, "I can't do that. I don't hang nigras." (The implication being that it would like hanging a child.)

Fortunately, Jim Hennessee did not have to disobey his boss because the Negro's former owner intervened and saved the man from execution.

My step-grandmother told this story to me several times."

BP1934 reports that "this family was originally named de Verdon, and they are doubtless a younger branch of the baronial house of Verdon of Alton, whose arms they originally bore." We have no reason to doubt this but note that, for this to be true and noting the dates involved, the following Ralph brother of Walter, "the first Norman abbot of Evesham" must have been son or brother of Bertram de Verdun of Farnham Royal, apparently the first to be named de Verdun or Verdon.

42755 Yaropolk I Sviatoslavich (c. 958–960 – 11 June? 980) (East Slavic: ??????? I ???????????, sometimes transliterated as Iaropolk) was a young and rather enigmatic ruler of Kiev between 972 and 980. He was the oldest son of Svyatoslav. His royal title is traditionally translated as "Prince".

Yaropolk was given Kiev by his father Sviatoslav I, who left on a military campaign against the Danube Bulgars. Soon after Svyatoslav's death, however, civil war began between Yaropolk and his brothers. According to one chronicle, Yaropolk's brother Oleg killed Lyut, the son of Yaropolk's chief adviser and military commander Sveneld. In an act of revenge and at the insistence of Sveneld, Yaropolk went to war against his brother and killed him. Then, Yaropolk sent his men to Novgorod, from which his other brother Vladimir had fled on receiving the news about Oleg's death. Yaropolk became the sole ruler of Rus'.

Murder of Yaropolk

In 980, Vladimir returned with the Varangian mercenaries and attacked Yaropolk (Varangian defined: On his way to Kiev, Vladimir seized Polotsk because Rogneda, daughter of the Polotsk prince Rogvolod, had chosen Yaropolk over him. Vladimir forced Rogneda to marry him. Then, Vladimir seized Kiev with the assistance from a boyar Blud, who had become Yaropolk's chief adviser upon the death of Sveneld. Blud betrayed Yaropolk by advising him to flee from Kiev and go into retreat in the town of Rodnya at the mouth of the Ros' River. Vladimir besieged Rodnya and starved Yaropolk into negotiations. Yaropolk trusted Blud and his brother's promises of peace and left for Vladimir's headquarters, where he would be killed in an ambush by two Varangians.

Purported baptism
As for contemporary foreign sources, Lambert of Hersfeld records that, on the Easter of 973, the Holy Roman Emperor was visited by envoys from Rus' (legati gentium Ruscorum). In later centuries it was said that Yaropolk also exchanged ambassadors with the Pope. The Chronicon of Adâemar de Chabannes and the life of St. Romuald (by Pietro Damiani) document how St. Bruno of Querfurt was sent to Rus' (Latin: Russia) and succeeded in converting a local king (one of three brothers who ruled the land) to Christianity. As both texts are rife with anachronisms, Vladimir Parkhomenko reasons that Bruno's deeds were conflated with those of his predecessors, Adalbert of Prague and several anonymous missionaries active in Eastern Europe during Otto II's reign.[1]

Following this line of thought, Alexander Nazarenko suggests that Yaropolk went through some preliminary rites of baptism, but was murdered by his pagan half-brother (whose own rights to the throne were questionable) before he could be formally received in the Christian faith. Any information on Yaropolk's baptism according to the Latin rite would be suppressed by later Orthodox chroniclers, zealous to keep Vladimir's image of the Russian Apostle untarnished for succeeding generations.[2] It is known that Vladimir's son Yaroslav had Yaropolk's bones exhumed, christened and interred in the Church of the Tithes.[3]

Marriage and issues
It is known that Yaropolk was married to a Greek nun. They had a son:

42757 Yaroslav I, Grand Prince of Rus', known as Yaroslav the Wise or Iaroslav the Wise (Old East Slavic: ???????? ?????????????? ??????; Russian: ??????´? ??´????, translit. Jaroslav Mudryj [j?r?'slaf 'mudr?j]; Ukrainian: ??????´? ??´????, translit. Jaroslav Mudryj [j?ro'sl?u?

Yaroslav's Christian name was George (Yuri) after Saint George (Old East Slavic: ?????i, Gjurigái).

A son of Vladimir the Great, the first Christian Prince of Novgorod, Yaroslav acted as vice-regent of Novgorod at the time of his father's death in 1015. Subsequently, his eldest surviving brother, Sviatopolk I of Kiev, killed three of his other brothers and seized power in Kiev. Yaroslav, with the active support of the Novgorodians and the help of Varangian mercenaries, (Varangian defined: defeated Svyatopolk and became the Grand Prince of Kiev in 1019. Under Yaroslav the codification of legal customs and princely enactments was begun, and this work served as the basis for a law code called the Russkaya Pravda ("Rus Truth [Law]"). During his lengthy reign, Kievan Rus' reached the zenith of its cultural flowering and military power.[2]

Rise to the throne

The only contemporary image of Yaroslav I the Wise, on his seal.
Main article: Boleslaw I's intervention in the Kievan succession crisis
The early years of Yaroslav's life are shrouded in mystery. He was one of the numerous sons of Vladimir the Great, presumably his second by Rogneda of Polotsk,[3] although his actual age (as stated in the Primary Chronicle and corroborated by the examination of his skeleton in the 1930s) would place him among the youngest children of Vladimir. It has been suggested that he was a child begotten out of wedlock after Vladimir's divorce from Rogneda and marriage to Anna Porphyrogenita, or even that he was a child of Anna Porphyrogenita herself. Yaroslav figures prominently in the Norse sagas under the name Jarisleif the Lame; his legendary lameness (probably resulting from an arrow wound) was corroborated by the scientists who examined his remains.[citation needed]

In his youth, Yaroslav was sent by his father to rule the northern lands around Rostov but was transferred to Veliky Novgorod,[4] as befitted a senior heir to the throne, in 1010. While living there, he founded the town of Yaroslavl (literally, "Yaroslav's") on the Volga River. His relations with his father were apparently strained,[4] and grew only worse on the news that Vladimir bequeathed the Kievan throne to his younger son, Boris. In 1014 Yaroslav refused to pay tribute to Kiev and only Vladimir's death, in July 1015, prevented a war.[4]

During the next four years Yaroslav waged a complicated and bloody war for Kiev against his half-brother Sviatopolk I of Kiev, who was supported by his father-in-law, Duke Boleslaw I Chrobry of Poland.[5] During the course of this struggle, several other brothers (Boris, Gleb, and Svyatoslav) were brutally murdered.[5] The Primary Chronicle accused Svyatopolk of planning those murders,[5] while the saga Eymundar ¤âattr hrings is often interpreted as recounting the story of Boris' assassination by the Varangians in the service of Yaroslav. However, the victim's name is given there as Burizaf, which is also a name of Boleslaus I in the Scandinavian sources. It is thus possible that the Saga tells the story of Yaroslav's struggle against Svyatopolk (whose troops were commanded by the Polish duke), and not against Boris.[citation needed]

Yaroslav defeated Svyatopolk in their first battle, in 1016, and Svyatopolk fled to Poland.[5] But Svyatopolk returned in 1018 with Polish troops furnished by his father-in-law, seized Kiev[5] and pushed Yaroslav back into Novgorod. Yaroslav at last prevailed over Svyatopolk, and in 1019 firmly established his rule over Kiev.[6] One of his first actions as a grand prince was to confer on the loyal Novgorodians (who had helped him to gain the Kievan throne), numerous freedoms and privileges. Thus, the foundation of the Novgorod Republic was laid. For their part, the Novgorodians respected Yaroslav more than they did other Kievan princes; and the princely residence in their city, next to the marketplace (and where the veche often convened) was named Yaroslav's Court after him. It probably was during this period that Yaroslav promulgated the first code of laws in the lands of the East Slavs, the Russkaya Pravda.


Coins of Yaroslav and his descendants represent the trident.

Depiction of Yaroslav the Wise from Granovitaya Palata.
Power struggles between siblings
Leaving aside the legitimacy of Yaroslav's claims to the Kievan throne and his postulated guilt in the murder of his brothers, Nestor the Chronicler and later Russian historians often presented him as a model of virtue, styling him "the Wise". A less appealing side of his personality is revealed by his having imprisoned his youngest brother Sudislav for life. Yet another brother, Mstislav of Chernigov, whose distant realm bordered the North Caucasus and the Black Sea, hastened to Kiev and, despite reinforcements led by Yaroslav's brother-in-law King Anund Jacob of Sweden (as Jakun - "blind and dressed in a gold suit"),[7] inflicted a heavy defeat on Yaroslav in 1024. Yaroslav and Mstislav then divided Kievan Rus' between them: the area stretching left from the Dnieper River, with the capital at Chernihiv, was ceded to Mstislav until his death in 1036.

Scandinavian allies
In his foreign policy, Yaroslav relied on the Scandinavian alliance and attempted to weaken the Byzantine influence on Kiev. In 1030, he reconquered Red Ruthenia from the Poles and concluded an alliance with King Casimir I the Restorer, sealed by the latter's marriage to Yaroslav's sister, Maria. In another successful military raid the same year, he captured Tartu, Estonia and renamed it Yuryev[8] (named after Yury, Yaroslav's patron saint) and forced the surrounding province of Ugaunnia to pay annual tribute.

Campaign against Byzantium
In 1043, Yaroslav staged a naval raid against Constantinople led by his son Vladimir of Novgorod and general Vyshata. Although his navy was defeated in the Rus'–Byzantine War (1043), Yaroslav managed to conclude the war with a favourable treaty and prestigious marriage of his son Vsevolod I of Kiev to the emperor's daughter. It has been suggested that the peace was so advantageous because the Kievans had succeeded in taking a key Byzantine possession in Crimea, Chersonesus.

Protecting the inhabitants of the Dniper from the Pechenegs
To defend his state from the Pechenegs and other nomadic tribes threatening it from the south he constructed a line of forts, composed of Yuriev, Bohuslav, Kaniv, Korsun-Shevchenkivskyi, and Pereiaslav-Khmelnytskyi. To celebrate his decisive victory over the Pechenegs in 1036 (who thereupon never were a threat to Kiev) he sponsored the construction of the Saint Sophia Cathedral in 1037. That same year there were built monasteries of Saint George and Saint Irene. Some mentioned and other celebrated monuments of his reign such as the Golden Gate of Kiev perished during the Mongol invasion of Rus', but later restored.

Establishment of law
Yaroslav was a notable patron of book culture and learning. In 1051, he had a Slavic monk, Hilarion of Kiev, proclaimed the metropolitan bishop of Kiev, thus challenging the Byzantine tradition of placing Greeks on the episcopal sees. Hilarion's discourse on Yaroslav and his father Vladimir is frequently cited as the first work of Old East Slavic literature.

Family life and posterity

Eleventh-century fresco of Saint Sophia's Cathedral, Kiev, representing the daughters of Yaroslav I, with Anne probably being the youngest. Other daughters were Anastasia, wife of Andrew I of Hungary; Elizabeth, wife of Harald Harºrâaºi; and possibly Agatha, wife of Edward the Exile.
In 1019, Yaroslav married Ingegerd Olofsdotter, daughter of the king of Sweden,[9] and gave Staraya Ladoga to her as a marriage gift.

Saint Sophia's Cathedral in Kiev houses a fresco representing the whole family: Yaroslav, Irene (as Ingegerd was known in Rus), their four daughters and six sons.[10] Yaroslav had three of his daughters married to foreign princes who lived in exile at his court:

Elisiv of Kiev to Harald Harºrâaºi[9] (who attained her hand by his military exploits in the Byzantine Empire);
Anastasia of Kiev to the future Andrew I of Hungary;[9]
Anne of Kiev married Henry I of France[9] and was the regent of France during their son's minority; (she was Yaroslav the Wise's most beloved daughter).
(possibly) Agatha, wife of Edward the Exile, of the royal family of England, the mother of Edgar the ¥theling and Saint Margaret of Scotland.

Anne of Kiev.
Yaroslav had one son from the first marriage (his Christian name being Ilya (?-1020)), and six sons from the second marriage. Apprehending the danger that could ensue from divisions between brothers, he exhorted them to live in peace with each other. The eldest of these, Vladimir of Novgorod, best remembered for building the Cathedral of St. Sophia, Novgorod, predeceased his father. Three other sons—Iziaslav I, Sviatoslav II, and Vsevolod I—reigned in Kiev one after another. The youngest children of Yaroslav were Igor Yaroslavich (1036–1060) of Volhynia and Vyacheslav Yaroslavich (1036–1057) of the Principality of Smolensk. About Vyacheslav, there is almost no information. Some documents point out the fact of him having a son, Boris Vyacheslavich, who challenged Vsevolod I sometime in 1077-1078.


Sarcophagus of Yaroslav the Wise.
Following his death, the body of Yaroslav the Wise was entombed in a white marble sarcophagus within Saint Sophia's Cathedral. In 1936, the sarcophagus was opened and found to contain the skeletal remains of two individuals, one male and one female. The male was determined to be Yaroslav, however the identity of the female was never established. The sarcophagus was again opened in 1939 and the remains removed for research, not being documented as returned until 1964. Then, in 2009, the sarcophagus was opened and surprisingly found to contain only one skeleton, that of a female. It seems the documents detailing the 1964 reinterment of the remains were falsified to hide the fact that Yaroslav's remains had been lost. Subsequent questioning of individuals involved in the research and reinterment of the remains seems to point to the idea that Yaroslav's remains were purposely hidden prior to the German occupation of Ukraine and then either lost completely or stolen and transported to the United States where many ancient religious artifacts were placed to avoid "mistreatment" by the communists.[11]


Yaroslav the Wise's consolidation of Kiev and Novgorod as depicted at Zoloti Vorota mosaics
Four different towns in four different countries were founded by and named after Yaroslav: Yaroslavl (in today's Russia), Yuryev (now Tartu, Estonia) and another Yuryev (now Bila Tserkva, Ukraine), and Jaroslaw in Poland. Following the Russian custom of naming military objects such as tanks and planes after historical figures, the helmet worn by many Russian soldiers during the Crimean War was called the "Helmet of Yaroslav the Wise". It was the first pointed helmet to be used by any army, even before German troops wore pointed helmets.

In 2008 Yaroslav was placed first (with 40% of the votes) in their ranking of "our greatest compatriots" by the viewers of the TV show Velyki Ukraèintsi.[12] Afterwards one of the producers of The Greatest Ukrainians claimed that Yaroslav had only won because of vote manipulation and that (if that had been prevented) the real first place would have been awarded to Stepan Bandera.[13]

Iron Lord was a 2010 film based on his early life as a regional prince on the frontier.

42759 Yes. It is consistent with the interpretation that all three of you (you, Joseph Morrissey, and James Dixon) all share common Dodson ancestry. For you and James Dixon, the most recent common Dodson ancestor would be Thomas Dodson, Sr. (1681-1740). We may never know who the most recent common Dodson ancestor is among the 3 of you (because of the cold paper trail for Isiah Dodson), but I think the DNA evidence, along with the extensive Dodson paper trail you've compiled, almost certainly indicates that you 3 share a common Dodson ancestor. Maybe the most recent common Dodson ancestor is Thomas Dodson, Sr. for all three of you, or maybe it is further back than that (although the amount of shared DNA among you 3 would PROBABLY favor that it is not further back . . . meaning that Thomas Dodson, Sr. is PROBABLY the most recent common Dodson ancestor among you 3).

Thanks, David. Yes, he is a possible NPE. If so, though, he still managed to have a Dodson surname and would have to be descended from someone in that family in order to have a descendant (my wife's Uncle Joseph) that is an autosomal DNA match with you. Joseph is also an autosomal DNA match to another person in the FTNDA database with Dodson ancestry (James Alvis Dixon). James Dixon is descended from Eleanor Dodson (1743 - 1782), who is also in your Hennessee database. Furthermore, James Dixon is descended from Thomas Dodson, Sr. (1681 - 1740), who is also one of your Dodson ancestors. You, Joseph Morrissey, and James Dixon all share the same DNA region(s) on the long arm of chromosome 19. So, although we may never figure out exactly how Isiah Dodson is related to the others, thanks to DNA, we do know that he is a member of that Dodson family, and that he is descended, somehow, from Thomas Dodson, Sr. (1681-1740), who was born in colonial Virginia, and who's father, Charles Dodson (1649-1704/1705) was also born in colonial Virginia.

You are a fairly close match to my wife's uncle (Joseph Morrissey), estimated to be a 2nd-4th cousin. I feel pretty sure that this must through the Dodson family from TN. Isaiah Dodson (1809-1866) was Joseph's great-great grandfather. We don't know who Isaiah's parents were, but given the DNA match between you and Jospeh, it would seem likely that your great-great grandmother, Maxa Dodson, may have been a close relative to Isaiah (possibly a sister or a first cousin).

42783 Zachariah and his brothers fought in the war 1812 in the Battle of New Orleans with Major General Andrew Jackson. He was an Ensign (Junior, Officer, Company Grade). Jones, Ensign Zachariah (I48589)
42784 Zachariah Magness was probably born about 1759 in Prince George’s County, Maryland, and appears to be the son of Peregrine Magness and wife Mary.

More research needs to be done on Zachariah, but the records of Morgan District Superior Court of North Carolina reveals quite a bit. In 1789 Zachariah was convicted of raping Arabella Twity Magness, wife of his brother Joseph; She also accused Joseph of aiding and abetting the act. The papers of Morgan District Superior Court (in Bucked County?) show that on March 12, 1789, the sheriff of Rutherford County was commanded to seize 54 pounds and 9 shillings from the property of Zachariah Magness for debts and costs in the Morgan Superior Court of Law and Equity in that case expended whereof the said Zachariah Magmess is convicted and liable of record.

He was convicted, but his sentence has not been found at this time. In 1789, long prison terms were seldom given; the usual sentences were whipping, branding, or hanging.

Was Zachariah executed? or did he receive other punishment and move away? His name has not been found further in the North Carolina records.

No claim was made on the estate of his brother William Magness who died in 1816, so we assume that Zachariah had died without heirs by that time.

Zula was born in the Green Valley School District where she treasured her friends so much. She accepted Christ during revival at Coon Creek Church in 1940.

Zula was united in marriage to Jewell Craig on October 14, 1940. To this union one daughter was born. They made their home in the Hartville and Mansfield areas. In 1958, Jewell was called into the ministry, where she enjoyed the friends they had in churches they pastored until poor health came her way. She liked to read the bible until her eye sight failed. She loved all her family and enjoyed visiting with friends on the telephone.

She was preceded in death by her parents and four brothers.

Left to mourn her departure is her husband of sixty-seven years, Jewell, of Mansfield, Missouri; her daughter, Carol Giffin, of Lebanon, Missouri; two grandchildren, Mark Giffin and his wife, Lorrie, of Hartville, Missouri, and Michelle Underwood and her husband, Richard, of Granbury, Texas; five great-grandchildren, Leanne Brown and her husband, Lance, of Lebanon, Missouri, Kyra Giffin, of Hartville, Missouri, Josh, Samantha and Alex See, all of Granbury, Texas; one great-great-grandson, Caleb Brown, of Lebanon, Missouri; and many more relatives and friends.

In her short stay at the Hartville Care Center, she mentioned the good friends she had. She will be greatly missed, but our loss is heaven's gain.

Zula was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, and was a caring neighbor and friend. We celebrate her life and accomplishments and will cherish the wonderful memories she has created for her family and many dear friends.

Services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday, November 18, 2007, in the Holman-Howe Funeral Home, Hartville. Burial will be in Coon Creek Cemetery. Visitation will be held Saturday evening from 7 - 8:30 p.m. under the direction of Holman-Howe Funeral Home of Hartville, Missouri.

3rd son

Nicholas Gyrlyngton was the son of William Gyrlyngton and Joanna.

Nicholas Girlington of Dighton-juxta-Escrik, son of William, the Lord Mayor of York, was also known as Nicholas Gyrlyngton of York, gentleman.

Nicholas was the executor of the will of his father, William, who died in the 22nd year of Henry VI (1444). His wife was the executrix of his estate. His mother's will was dated 19 Jul 1457.

He is shown on Visitation pedigrees as being one of 3 sons, but the only one survining at the time of his father's death.

According to the Visitation of Yorkshire of 1563/1564, Nycolas was listed as the 3rd brother and was noted to be of Hackforth, Yorkshire, England and descended from the "howsse of Gyrlyngton Hall in Rychmondshyre." He and his family were then noted as Gyrlyngton of Hackforth, Yorkshire.

He married Elizabeth, daughter of Caterycke of Stanwick.

Nicholas and his wife Elizabeth were mentioned in the will of his mother in 1457. Nicholas was bequeathed "a silver cup guilt in the shape of a nut". Elizabeth was bequeathed "a salt of silver, covered and parcel guilt." He and Elizabeth together were bequeathed "a great pair of iron andirons".

Nicholas Girlington, purchaser of Great Hutton, alias Hutton Longvillers, ancestor of the Girlingtons of Hackworth. Nicholas Girlington = ... dau. of .... Catterick of Stanwick.'

[Final Concords of the County of Lancaster, Great Britain Public Record Office, page 171]

Evidently, Nicholas had been wrongfully imprisoned and died while in prison. To date, have been unable to document the reason for the imprisonment, or the precise location. However, from the following, the crown made restitution to his widow,

From the "Calendar of the Patent Rolls Preserved in the Public Record Office" - Page 381

Conflicting sources on the given name of Nicholas' wife. His will was administered by "his wyfe Elisabeth". However, the marriage license issued in Howdenshire listed the names of Edward Saltmarshe and Agnes. License issued 06 Sep 1471
(Howden Parish Archives)

Majority of sources state the Agnes on the license was a mistake as they all concur her name was Elizabeth - Burke, Maddison, Stirnet

It appears William followed his uncle Stephen to York. His uncle died in York in 1394

William was a citizen and draper of York. He was Sheriff of the City of York in 1427, Lord Mayor of York in 1441, Member of Parliament for the city of York in 1442. His wife Johanna was executrix to his will in the 32nd year of Henry VI (1454). William also owned lands in Gaynsford in Sedbergh, Durham County.

He is mentioned as William "the elder" (de antiquo) in the Inventroy of Henry Bowet, Archbishop of York. This would indicate one of William and Johanna's son's was also named William. However, this younger William had died prior to the date of William's will.

Nicholas Girlington was the son of Nicholas Girlington and Elizabeth Hansard. He became legal heir to the family holdings at Hackforth following the death of his brother Christopher sometime before 1550. Nicholas, IV was identified as Lord of Hackforth and was living in 1585. Nicholas died intestate in the 38th year of Elizabeth I (1597).

Hornby Parish records show his date of burial as 28 May 1597 and his estate Inventroy appraisal proved on 18 Nov 1599

1568 - Mentioned in his brother-in-law's will (Sampson Wyvill)

The Gyrlyngtons of Hackforth recorded their pedigree in 1584

Nicholas purchased lands from his borther-in-law, Geroge Pudsey, in 1585. George was the second husband of Faith Gyrlyngton. George died about 1590 and Faith in 1617.

In 1590 it was noted that Nicholas Girlington, the last but one of the Hackforth pedigree, was living at Sandhall, in the parish of Howden. This estate is in the township of Skelton and lies near, and is almost enclosed by, the banks of the Ouse river; and is opposite the port of Goole. In Johnstons MSS, relating to the county of York, it is stated that the widow of Sir John Girlington (fourth son and successor of Nicholas) sold Sandhall to Mr Walter Blakiston of York.

Howden parish records show Nicholas was buried on 28 May 1597. The parish records only record the burial date, not the location of burial. He had died intestate (without a will) so there is no written record as to where he had requested to be buried.

Notes from :

A considerable amount is known about John Hoton Esq., and is excellently described by W. E. Hampton in John Hoton of Hunwick and Tudhoe, County Durham, The Ricardian, VII (1985), pp. 2-17.

John lived during the Wars of the Roses, which were fought between the Plantagenet houses of York and Lancaster, and was firmly aligned with the Yorkists. In 1480, there was a large Scots raid, and King Edward IV appointed his brother Richard, Duke of Gloucester, as Lieutenant-General of the North to combat the threat. The Duke issued Commissions of Array for the northern counties, and John Hoton was one of the Commissioners for Durham. John Hoton was to serve under Gloucester for the rest of his life.

When Edward IV died in 1483, Gloucester was appointed protector of the 13-year-old Edward V, but chose instead to declare himself King, as Richard III, and imprison Edward and his younger brother in the Tower. These were the ... Princes in the Tower ..., supposedly murdered by Richard. Gloucester surrounded himself with northerners: when he set out towards London after Edward's death in 1483, it was with ... a competent number of gentlemen of the North, all clad in black .... John Hoton was among them, and was with Gloucester throughout the brief but turbulent period of his Protectorate. John Hoton also played a prominent part in suppressing the rebellions in the south that followed Richard's coronation. By December 1483, Hoton had been appointed Esquire for the Body to Richard III, and was granted several manors in Hampshire previously held by Sir William Berkeley, who had been one of the rebels. Although Hoton retained his lands in the North, much of his subsequent work was in the south: for example, he was Commissioner of Array for Hampshire in 1484 and 1485 (as was Richard Hansard of Walworth). Hoton was also constable of Christchurch Castle, near Poole.

John Hoton probably died at the Battle of Bosworth Field, near Leicester, in August 1485, where Richard III was defeated by Henry Tudor, who then became King Henry VII. Richard himself died in the battle. John Hoton was buried in the chapel of Trinity College, Oxford (formerly Durham College). Unfortunately, his brass is no longer there.
