34. Christian Belser 6 was born between 1752 and 1753 in Baden-Baden, Baden-Würtemberg, Germany, 11 died on 3 Apr 1812,about age 60, and was buried in Charleston, South Carolina.

Notes and Events:

• Immigration: to America from Würtemberg, Germany, Before 1755.

• Note: "Apparently came to this country prior to 1775. Family tradition says that he came from the Duchy of Wurtemberg, though no definite information is in hand on this point."

Owned land in Goose Creek, South Carolina.

Member St. John's Lutheran Church on the corner of Archdale Street and Clifford Street (formerly Dutch Church Alley).

One of the founding members of the German Fusiliers, organized in 1755. In 1779 this military company served gallantly at the siege of Savannah.

The 'German Friendly Society', a charitable and social organization, was organized in 1766 by Michael Kalteisen, a member of the Board of Vestry of St. John's, and its original membership came from St. John's Lutheran Church. Christian Belser served as president of the society in 1792.

• Info: Information from Freeman Belser to Howard Delwin Moore, Jr. The sand hills refer to the "High Hills of Santee," which is in Sumter
County, South Carolina. I think that there are a couple of books written on
it. According to their descendants, they were some of the most prominant
families in South Carolina - Mannings, Richardsons, Bakers. If you look at a
map of South Carolina, the High Hills refer to the elevated land east of the
Wateree River. The hills looked out over the valley.

Christian Belser was the first Belser to arrive in South Carolina. His son,
Jacob, moved the family to the High Hills after his father's death. Jacob
Belser's old plantation is now Poinsett State Park.

• American Revolution Note: Christian Belser appears on the rolls as one of the original one hundred and thirty-seven Germans organized under the name of the German Fusiliers in 1774. During the years of 1776 and 1777 the Fusiliers were constantly in active service in and around Charleston. In 1979, they were called upon at the Siege and Battle of Savannah, where Christian appears on the muster roll as one of the four Sergeants.

• Headstone: (a brick vault about one and a half feet high, covered with a marble slab about eight feet by three feet). SACRED TO THE MEMORY
OF
MR. CHRISTIAN BELSER
Who departed this life
April 3rd, 1812, aged 59 years
Through the vicissitudes of a long life,
he manifested an unalterable
attachment to the Christian charactor.
He was a man of most benevolent humanity,
just and upright in all his transactions.
Of soul sincere, of honour unstained,
in his manners unaffected, he lived beloved,
and died deservedly regretted.

Christian married Anna Maria "Mary" Bromiller on 27 Jan 1778 in St John's Lutheran Church, Charleston, SC.

Marriage Notes and Events:

• Marriage Note: from the records of Howard Delwin Moore, Jr:According to material in the Latter Day Saints library, Christian Belser and
Maria Muller were married in St John's Lutheran Church in Charleston, SC on
January 27, 1778. Evidently she used the name Muller/Miller when she
followed Christian Belser to America. It's odd that they were married during
the Rev. War. She must have immigrated just prior to 1776, since the British
mounted an unsuccessful attact on Charleston in 1776 and it was probably
blockaded after that date.

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Louisa Belser (born before 1800 in South Carolina - died in South Carolina)

         ii.   Harriet C. Belser

        iii.   Elizabeth Ann Belser

         iv.   Christian "Jacob" Belser, Sr. (born on 23 Nov 1781 in Charleston, South Carolina - died on 26 Mar 1833, buried in Bloom Hill Cemetery, Sumter Co., SC)

        vii.   Andrew Belser (born on 27 Oct 1792 in South Carolina - died on 22 Sep 1806 in South Carolina)

       viii.   Frederick S. Belser (born about 1800)


35. Anna Maria "Mary" Bromiller 6 was born from 1760 to 1761 in Würtemberg, Germany,died on 21 Jun 1842,at age 82, and was buried in St. John's Lutheran Church Cemetery, Charleston, SC.

Notes and Events:

• Note: Said to have been first cousin of her husband.

According to material in the Latter Day Saints library, Christian Belser and
Maria Muller were married in St John's Lutheran Church in Charleston, SC on
January 27, 1778. Evidently she used the name Muller/Miller when she
followed Christian Belser to America.

In the early 1800's, Maria Miller applied for a revolutionary war pension
citing the service record of her husband, Christian Belser, as being at the
siege of Savanna and also the siege of Charleston when it fell to the
British. He was 4th Sergeant of the Charleston German Fusileers. According
to reports this unit fought bravely at Savannah, although the city fell to
the British due to some American blunders. The pension record shows her name
as Bromiller or Miller.

• Burial Notes: South-central part of St. John's Lutheran Church cemetery, on Archdale and Clifford Streets, Charleston, South Carolina. This churchyard abuts the churchyard of an adjacent church and the Belsers are buried near the division line. Gravestone indicates death at age 82.

• Headstone: TO THE MEMORY
OF
MRS. MARY BELSER
Widow of Christian Belser, who died
on the 21st of June, 1842, age 82 years

Anna married Christian Belser on 27 Jan 1778 in St John's Lutheran Church, Charleston, SC.

• Military: Revelutionary War, 1775-1778. He served for three years in the Continental Line, 1775-1778. His was one of the cases of Revolutionary Claims rejected by the Congressional Committee on claims in 1842, with the statement that, "His name is not on any roll now to be found, nor was he paid, by Va., or the U. S. for any service. It is altogether impossible he could have performed a service of these years, though his heirs were allowed the bounty of 4000 acres for that service, Sep. 1, 1838." (Rep. 1063, 27 Cong., 2 Sess., Aug. 2, 1842, p. 27.)
To this report the Cong. Committe on Public Lands replied; (Rep. 457, 28 Cong., 1 Sess., May 2, 1844, p. 139.)
"In the case of Capt. Francis Conway, he was proved to have been in the minute service in Sept., 1775, and for more than three years thereafter. A reference to the executive journal of Sept. 10, 1776, showed him to have been commissioned Lieutenant on that day in the regular service."
Commissioned 1st Lieut. of the four companies of Minute Men from the Caroline District Sept. 12, 1776
Commissioned Captain in Oct. 1776

• Note: 1784, King George Co., VA.

• Obituary: Fredericksburg Virginia Herald, 11 Mar 1790. "On Friday last died, of a short illness, Mrs. Eliza (sic) Fitzhugh, of Stafford County, in the 61st year of her age. She was the mother of thirteen children, all of them bred up and settled out in that regular decent manner as to the patterns of sobriety, industry, and good behaviour to all around them; these, with their children, amount in the number of 54. And what is very remarkable, that amisdt all the cares, troubles and difficulties, of so laborious a task, and the additonal misfortune of her husband being blind for near twenty years, she lived with him in so constant a tenor of conjugal affection, that not a harsh word or untoward expression ever passed between them; such are the comforts of the matrimonial state when rightly conducted. Her loss is much deplored by her acquaintances and affectionate children. but it is and must be peculiarly distressing to her surviving husband, who has now no one left to live with him to cheer the melancholy residue of his days of darkness"

He was a member of the Church of England, and one of the organizers of St. Ann's, afterwards.

• Geographical Note: Eckington, Derbyshire, England.

Death Notes: Source: Willard Heiss, Quaker Biographical Sketches, (c1972).

Notes and Events:

• of: Hambridge, Somerset, England.

• Note: Marmaduke first proposed his intention to marry Anne Pole in his MM in Somerset Co., Eng on the 28th day 11 month of 1697/8. His 2nd proposal as Quaker custom dictated was announced at his monthly meeting on the 24th day, 12th month 1697/8. He was listed as Marmaduke Coate of Hambridge, Parish of Curry Rivel at the time. The meeting cleared his way to proceed with the marriage in Ann Pole's monthly meeting at that time. Note that he married Anne in his 40's much like his uncle John did. (Park)

Marmaduke Coate came to America in the spring of 1713 with his wife, Ann, and children: Mary, William, Edith, and possibly Marmaduke, ranging in age from 6 to 12 years. In made inquiries of the Kingsbury Episcopi Monthly Meeting in England concerning this move starting on the 30th day 2 mo 1713. On July 27, 1714, he purchased land from John Garwood in Springfield Twp., Burlington Co., New Jersey. In 1723 this land became part of the newly formed New Hanover Township. He also came to own 500 acres near Philadelphia called "White Marsh". He purchased 300 more acres of land in Springfield Twp. which remained in that township after border changes. It was bequeathed to daughter Edith Newbold in his will and in reality turned out to be 400 acres of land.

Marmaduke and his wife apparently traveled to England multiple times. They were received on certificates from South Sutton MM, Somerset Co., England on 3/25/1715 and on 4/2/1718. He again traveled to England on certificate dated 8/7/1723 and returned to New Jersey on certificate dated Nov. 3, 1725. He likely died in Burlington Co., NJ and was buried there on Dec. 15, 1729. Quaker records show him to be a well respected, rather wealthy member of the community. One Boston Transcript record dated May 28, 1923 states that he was the secretary to William Penn. It's validity is not certain, but a Coate, brother to a Hall in Hilliard, Oh supposedly has one of Marmaduke's book of notes from when he was a secretary to Penn. (C-351, 536)

Note that son, Marmaduke, was not mentioned in his father or mother's will. No record of him occurs in any quaker records except for his birth in the Bristol and Somerset quarterly meeting. Because his parents, Marmaduke and Ann Pole Coate, had four more children who died in infancy whose deaths were recorded in the Bristol and Somerset records, it is likely that son Marmaduke did take the trip to America with his parents, but died enroute or shortly after their arrival in the colonies.

A lengthy account of this Marmaduke is in Quaker records and was published in 1972 by Heiss. It is copied verbatum from Charlotte Coats Siercks site from http://www.rootsquest.com/~coatsfar/articles.html. Quaker Biographical Sketches of Ministers & Elders and other Concerned members of the Yearly Meeting of Philadelphia 1682-1800 by Willard Heiss, 1972 page 111: Marmaduke Coate Marmaduke Coate, the son of Marmaduke and Edith Coate, of Hambridge, in the county of Somerset, England, was born in the year 1652. Whilst yet young, his parents were convinced of the Truth as held by the people called Quakers, and he was evidently brought up “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” His parents suffered much in support of the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ, being fined and imprisoned. The suffering of his father, at least as respects bodily confinement, was unusual, even in that day. For tithes his imprisonments were long, and the spoiling of his goods not small, but through all he continued faithful, bearing an honest testimony by his walking in truth, and cheerfully suffering for it, and leaving a seed behind him, to bear similar sufferings in the same blessed cause. In the Fourth month, 1670, Thomas Whitehead and Jane his wife, being at Yeovil, held a meeting at the house of Henry Lavor, in that place. A magistrate named Helliar, with his officers and some soldiers, came where Friends were assembled, and although it appears that nothing had been said, yet he turned the Friends out of the house, and conducted them prisoners to a neighbouring inn. As they passed along the street, Thomas Whitehead exhorted those about them “to repent and fear God.” His wife also made some similar remarks. For this they were each fined L20, and the money was collected off the Friends, who had assembled at the meeting. Marmaduke Coate, the elder, was there, and being a man of substance, his portion of the fine was L20. In the Eighth month, the same year, Marmaduke was sued for tithes, for which, as he could not conscientiously pay the demand, he was cast into prison at Ilchester, where he was found, in the Fourth month, 1678, by John Whiting, who was committed to that place. Henry Walrond, whom John Whiting “characterises” as the greatest persecutor in the county of Somerset, was particularly severe on Marmaduke Coate, because being a man of property, he could the more easily make unrighteous gain off of him than his poorer neighbours. During Marmaduke’s long imprisonment for tithes, on one occasion having a little temporary liberty allowed him, perhaps by the jailer, to go and look after his affairs at home, Walrond committed him again, although already a prisoner in the eye of the law. Many were the distraints he made on the goods of this innocent prisoner, until on one occasion meeting with a check, he confessed to Marmaduke that nothing prospered with him, and promised that he would persecute no more. This fit of repentance was soon over, and afterwards he was even more bitter than before, particularly towards Marmaduke. He had been a man of property, with a fair estate, and a fine noble personal But when he put his hands to the work of enriching himself, by spoiling his honest neighbours, everything went against him, He became so poor at last, that no one would trust him for a sixpenny loaf, and he had to spin to make a pitiful subsistence before he died. Whiting quotes concerning him, an old saying, “Such a thrifty trade is persecution, that it leaves men never a friend in heaven or on earth”. After stating that Walrond “died miserably poor, as well as miserable otherwise,” he gives a saying of Walter Raleigh, - “These are the men that sought the misery of others, and misery found them out. In the year 1682, being still in prison, Marmaduke Coate, John Coate, probably an elder brother, and a number of others prepared the following address: - “To the Judges of Assize, in the County of Somerset. “The representation of the people of God, called Quakers, in humility, “Sheweth, “That we profess faith in one only God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we worship in his Spirit, according to the Holy Scriptures, and in the leadings of the same, are taught to love God above all, and our neighbours as ourselves, and to lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty; and do own Charles the Second to be chief magistrate of this kingdom, and other his dominions, as being eminently preserved and brought into the government thereof, by the immediate hand of God; and do still resolve to be subject to him, and those in authority under him for conscience’ sake, as good Protestant subjects, truly desiring to answer the just end of government, which is for the subduing of sin and vice, and encouragement of righteousness and virtue. “Yet notwithstanding we have been, and many of us are still exposed to such perils and sufferings as must inevitably bring many peaceable and industrious families, who desire the good of the king and kingdom, to utter ruin and destruction, and that only for their pure conscience toward God, (before whom we must all appear, and give an account, and receive a reward according to the deeds done in the body,) and that by laws made against papists, or meetings to plot and contrive insurrections, under pretense of religious worship, and seditious conventicles, which principles and practices we utterly deny and detest, as our peaceable deportment under many great sufferings, by those formerly in power, and since also, may sufficiently manifest. Some few particulars of our late sufferings annexed, are presented to your consideration, for this end, that as Providence orders your coming this circuit to do justice, you may not be altogether unacquainted with our sufferings, but may use your authority to relieve the oppressed, and put a stop to the cruel proceedings of our oppressors; at least discountenance such unmerciful practices. That so ye may appear to be such as are a terror to evil-doers, and a praise to them that do well, which is truly acceptable to the Lord. Therein his peace and blessing will be with you, which is the earnest desire and prayer of the innocent suffering people aforesaid.
John Coate, Joseph Lye, Marmaduke Coate, &c.” Marmaduke Coate, the younger, the subject of this memoir, on the 11th of the Ninth month, 1684, was taken at a meeting at Gregory Stoke, by Walrond, and sent to Ilchester prison, where his father still was. On the twenty-sixth of the same month, Edith Coate, a daughter of Marmaduke, the elder, being with others at a meeting in Ilminster, to worship God in spirit and in truth, as they had for many years regularly done, Henry Walrond came with his troop, arrested a number of whom Edith was one, and the next day committed them to prison. At the Sessions, in the Eleventh month, eighty-three of the Friends, in the Somerset prison, were liberated by court, and in the following month, thirty-two more were released by the jailer. Among these last appears to have been Marmaduke Coate, the elder. He was, however, through the instrumentality of his persecutors, in again for tithes before the month had expired. Whilst a prisoner for tithes, he was indicted for absence from the parish place of worship, and fined for a breach of law, which he could not have prevented. In the Sessions held in the Fifth month, 1684, at Bridgewater, in Somerset, the prisoners again addressed the justices, who discharged several of those then recently committed. Again, in the Sixty month, they addressed the justices appointed to hold the assizes at Wells. Still Marmaduke was kept a prisoner. In this summer his beloved daughter Edith was taken sick and deceased. We know not whether the privilege was granted him to take a last farewell of her or not, but we know that he who pitieth those that fear him, is a God of comfort, and able to consider his faithful children under every trial that can come upon them. Walrond fined many of the neightours, who attended her burial. King Charles the Second dying, his brother James came to the throne, and being inclined to favour the Catholics, he was willing to favour all who, for dissent from the Church of England, were in prison. He put forth a proclamation for a general pardon on the 10th of the First month, 1686, and as the executive part thereof was committed to the justices, Friends in the Somerset prisons prepared a statement and address to be laid before the Quarter Sessions held at Wells, on the 30th of the same month. Their address ran thus: “To Chief Justice Herbert and Judge Wright, assigned to hold assized and gaol delivery, for the Western Circuit at Wells, for the county of Somerset, the thirtieth of the month called March, 1686. “Several of the people called Quakers, now prisoners in the gaol at Ivelchester, in the county of Somerset, on behalf of themselves and many others of the same people, in humility, show, “That since the Wise Disposer of all things, hath ordered your employment in this honourable service, to relieve the oppressed, and deliver the captives; and since king James II, that now is, hath committed part of his clemency to your custody, to distribute the same, according as the Lord hath inclined his heart; and having taken particular notice of our sufferings, and signified his will and pleasure, that we, the people commonly called Quakers, should receive the full benefit of his general pardon, with all possible ease; which grace and favour we, with all thankfulness, acknowledge to God as the Chief Author, who hath the hearts of king’s at his disposal; and to the king, as being ready herein to mind that which the Lord inclined his heart unto, and not without hope, to find the like opportunity to render to you our hearty thanks, for the full accomplishment of that which our God allows, and the king so readily grants us; and also hearing the report of your nobility and moderation, in managing this weighty trust committed to you, we are emboldened thus to address ourselves, though in plainness of speech, yet in sincerity of heart, to lay before you, that we have for several years been prisoners in the goal aforesaid, not for any plotting against the king or government, or harm done to his subjects. Our peaceable lives have manifested our fidelity to the kings, and love to our neighbors; it being contrary to our principles to do otherwise, but only for conscience’ sake, because in obedience to Christ Jesus, we dare not swear at all, or forbear to worship ‘God, as he hath ordained, nor conform to those worships which we have no faith in; which, to omit the one, or practice the other, we should thereby sin, and so would our consciences, and break our peace with God; and what good then should our lives do us, if we might enjoy never so much of the world’s favour and friendship. “Our humble request, therefore, to you is to consider and compassionate our suffering condition, and improve the power and authority that God and the king hath entrusted you withal, for our relief and liberty; we still resolving and hoping, through God’s assistance for the future, to manifest our fear to God, honour to the king, and honesty to all his subjects, by our godly, humble and peaceable conversation. The particular causes of our imprisonments are herewith attested, under our keeper’s hand. And we further pray, that mercenary informers and envious prosecutors against us only for conscience’ sake, may, according to your wisdom and prudence, be discouraged from prosecuting such actions, by which many industrious and conscientious families and persons are in danger of being ruined; and we encouraged in our diligence, in our respective callings, and may enjoy the benefit of our industry; and so shall we be the better enabled to perform with cheerfulness the duties we owe to God, the king, and all men. The Lord guide you in judgment, and more and more incline your hearts to love mercy, and do justice, and grant you the reward thereof; which is truly our desire and prayer.” The names of the prisoners, the cause, with the period of their confinement, are then given. Marmaduke Coate’s imprisonment for tithes is notices as fifteen years and five months. The prisoners were released, but Marmaduke Coate did not long survive his liberation. In the year 1689, when the demand for tithes against his estate was made, his widow, Edith Coate, and his son Marmaduke were prosecuted, and committed to prison. The period of their confinement, we know not. About the beginning of 1700, Marmaduke Coate was married to Ann Pole, a daughter of Edward and Mary Pole, of Bustlehay, in Somersetshire. At what period they removed to America, I have not been able to discover, but they settled in Burlington county, New Jersey. They both became useful members of that meeting, and were both members of the meeting of ministers and elders. He was an elder, and she either stood in that capacity, or in that of a minister. Of their son, William, we shall have further to note. Marmaduke Coate, having lived honoured and respected, deceased the 15th day of the Twelfth month, 1729. (Pages 111-113)

An "Apostle Spoon" given to Marmaduke Coate by his godfather when he was baptised with his initials on it was still in existence in 1894 according to a letter by Mrs. W. R. Newbold to a Miss Mortoin. (C-536) 8 9

576. Edwin Conway, II was born about 1610 in England and died in 1675 in Lancaster, Lancaster Co., VA at age 65. Another name for Edwin was Edwyn Conaway.

Research Notes: EDWIN CONWAY (1610-1675)
Came to America in about 1640. He apparently left his wife Martha (Eltonhead) in England; she didn't arrive until about 1652. He came from the county of Worcester in England. He was the third Clerk of Northampton County, Virginia.
Ancestors: Conway's ancestry goes back at least six generations to Sir Henry Conway who was knighted during the reign of Richard II. Edwin's father was Sir Edward Conway, knighted by Robert Earl of Essex and March, at the sacking of Cadiz in Spain in 1596 where he commanded a Regiment of Foot (reign of Queen Elizabeth I); he was advanced to the title of Lord Conway of Ragley and held various positions including Secretary of State, Lord President of His Majesty's Privy Council, and Embassador Extraordinary to Germany. Edwin's ancestry also includes Edward who served as Gentleman Usher to the Chamber of King Henry VIII.
Descendants: Edwin's great granddaughter Eleanor Rose married James Madison, Sr. and was the mother of James Madison, Jr., 4th President of the United States. James Jr.'s sister Nelly married Isaac Hite, Jr. of Belle Grove, near Middletown, Virginia. Portraits of Eleanor Rose Conway Madison and James Madison, Sr. are in the house at the Belle Grove Historic Site.

• Note: From VIRGINIA GENEALOGIES. A GENEALOGY OF THE GLASSELL FAMILY. Feb. 5, 1657, 1600 a. Lanc'r Co. to "Mr. Edwin Conaway" and Hannah Mountney, widow. (IV., 200.) In 1657 2500 acres Lanc'r Co. to "Edwin Conaway, Gentleman," of which 1250 was due by patent of 1654, and 1250 for 25 persons. (IV., 255.) Sep. 26, 1678, 1650 a. were granted to "Edwin Conway, son & heir of Mr. Edwin Conaway, dec'd," who had patented it in 1659. Also same day 400 a. in Essex Co. to Edwin Conway. In 1681, 1200 a. in Old Rappahannock Co. to Edwin Conway; also to same, 1681, 200 a. in Middlesex Co. In the will of this last Edwin he devises to his wife all the residue of his "Estate real and personal in Virginia, England and elsewhere."

• Note: The relationship of Edward Conway, 1st Viscount of Ragley, to Edwin Conway (a1610-1674) of Virginia is not clear. Edwin Conway appears in many genealogist's records as son of Edward Conway, 1st Viscount of Ragley, a single paragraph in the book by Rev Horace Edwin Hayden, "A Genealogy of the Glassell Family", discounts this as only a possibility, NOT fact. The paragraph reads:
"Collins in his Baronetage (I., 332), shows that Edward Conway, who m. Anne, dau. and heiress of Richard Burdet, of Bramcote, Co. Warwick, from whom the Lords Conway descended, held estates in Worcestershire, whence Edwin Conway of Va. came. In 1531 and 1533 Thomas Burdet sued Edward Conway and his wife Anne for part of the lands of which they were seized as heirs of Richard B. The arbitrators in the suits decided that Conway should have, among other property, "the Manors of Belne, Hoblench, Clodshall, Upton-Warryn, Upton upon Severn, with Breley and Elmbrigge in Co. Wigorn." Probably examination of Conway wills and deeds in Worcestershire would show the connexion of the Ragley and the Va. lines. A tradition told by Mr. Conway Nutt states that two brothers named Conway, related to the Marquis of Hertford, were exiled to America for political reasons and came to Va. Sir Edward Conway and Captain Thomas Conway were members Va. Co. of London, 1609-1620. (v. Brown's Genesis of the U. S.)"

Sadly, Burke, in his "Extinct Peerage," article "Conway," gives only the eldest succeeding son of each generation, omitting mention of younger sons, so the relationship may be difficult to ever prove.

As giddy as this possible ancestry seems to make some descendants, I prefer to wait until the pudding has been proofed. I too, have much information published on the Conway family, but only for information purposes. As yet, there is NO proven link!

• Note: John Catlett emigrated from Sitingbourne , England to Virginia. "He was born before 1626, probably about 1622, and doubtless married in England before coming over, and had two sons, Thomas and Nicholas." (Stubbs, p. 13) "John Catlett (1622-1670), a native of Sittingbourne, Kent, England, came to Virginia in 1650, settling in Rappahannock County, on the south side of the river at the mouth of Golden Vale Creek.
Colonel John Catlett was a Justice of the Rappahannock County court, and was an explorer. He and German immigrant John Lederer were among the first settlers to lead an expedition to the top of the Blue Ridge Mountains in 1670. From Avant's book, p. 174 "The first party to explore and reach the summit of the Blue Ridge Mountains was led by Colonel John Catlett, of Rappahannock County, as gleaned from 'An account of Virginia,' communicated to the Royal Society in 1676 by Mr. Thomas Glover, an ingenious Chirugion that hath lived some years in that country." [Blackwell's Reprint, Oxford, 1904] "Mr. Glover's account states further that 'There was a Colonel Catlett that was a good Mathematician, who with some other gentlemen took a Journey to make some further discoveries of the Country to the Westwards and arriving at the foot of the Mountains early in the morning they left their horses and endeavored to gain the tops of the mountains which they accomplished about four o'clock in the afternoon, and then looking further forward they discovered other mountains, whereof they took the altitude and judged them inaccessible; which discouraged them from any further attempts, their design being chiefly to discover whether there were any rivers that ran into the South-Ocean . . .' etc.
(Avant, p. 174) "Land Office Patent Book 2, p. 224 "23 May 1650 - A patent for 400 acres of land is granted to John Catlett and Ralph Rousey. . . on the south side of Rappahannock River for the transportation of eight persons into this colony. . . . Included and listed in the names are: Ralph Rousey, John Catlett, Nicholas Catlett." (Avant, p. 175) Land Office Patent Book 3, p. 114 "7 June 1652 - John Catlett and Ralph Rouzee were granted 300 acres of land adjoining their first patent and among their headrights they listed: Sarah Rouzee, Edward Rouzee and Martha Rouzee." (Avant, p. 175) "Land Office Patent Book 3, p. 360 '1 July 1655 - A patent for 1,542 acres of land in Lancaster County granted to John Catlett and Ralph Rouzee . . . etc.'" (Avant, p. 175) "
John Catlett received several other large patents in that section which was Lancaster County and which later became Rappahannock County. These patents were in co-partnership with Ralph Rouzee and with Thomas Lucas, Senior as well as to himself alone." (Avant, p. 175).
John was also granted 450 acres called "Green Hill" on the south side of the Rappahannock river, between the Golden Vale and Cedar Creek. This was his home place and long continued in his family.
"Col. Catlett was killed by the Indians while defending the fort at Port Royal in 1670. Port Royal is on the Rappahannock river, in Caroline County, VA, opposite Port Conway." (Stubbs, p. 15)

Notes and Events:

• Note: He settled in York County, Virginia, as early as 1647 and held lands in Gloucester County in 1655. Robert Taliaferro, the Immigrant, is normally described in the literature by that designation, probably to distinguish him from his son Robert. He and all his sons were protestants, and in the York County records, where the name first appears about 1645, the spelling is sometimes "Toliver," showing that the pronunciation was then very much as it is now.

         ii.   William Thornton, III

        iii.   Rowland Thornton

William next married Elisha Belling . Elisha was born about 1620 and died about 1646 at age 26.

Notes and Events:

• Note: It is believed, although no proof exists, that William Thornton married, first Elisa Belling, about 1640/42, a daughter of Luke Belling (Bellington?) and Elisa Russell in Linenburg Parish, Richmond County, Virginia. (13) He married second Elizabeth Rowland, March 27, 1648 in Gloucester County, Virginia. (See also deed, Rappahannock Co., Deed Book 6, Page 83 which lists wife "Elizabeth") .

After doing lots of research I [Marcine E. Lohman] have concluded that William THORNTON could NOT have married Eliza BILLINGTON, the daughter of Luke BILLINGTON as is currently believed.

To come to this conclusion, I [Marcine E. Lohman] first searched for information on the Wills of Luke Billington and his wife Barbara, of Rappahannock Co., Va. which were proved in 1672 and 1674. This listed their children: Luke, Elitia, Elizabeth, Jane, Barbara and Mary. (6) (12)

Several sources have shown that Elizabeth is the one who went by Eliza and that Elitia was also known as Alicia. I [Marcine E. Lohman] also found that Eliza Billington married Dennis McCarty and had at least one child by 1679 as is shown in the quote below. (7) (12)

"Captain Daniel McCarty, of Cople Parish, Westmoreland County, the son of Dennis and Eliza (Billington) McCarty of Northumberland County, was born in 1679, and died May 4, 1724." (12)

Since it is believed that Luke and Edward Thornton were born circa 1642-1646, you could assume that their mother was 18 when Luke was born - but this would make Eliza 55 years old when her son Daniel was born by Dennis McCarty. Something which is quite unlikely. I [Marcine E. Lohman] therefore decided that Luke, Jr. must have had a daughter named Eliza and that this is the one who married Dennis McCarty. However, I've discovered that Luke, Jr. died without issue. (8)

I [Marcine E. Lohman] also checked on Alicia/Elitia in case I had the wrong daughter and found that Alicia married John Russell on September 11, 1673. (9)

"RUSSELL, JOHN married Alicia Billington, 11 September 1673. NFPR, p.161 (North Farnham Parish Register) (The bride was the daughter of Luke and Barbara Billington. Sweeny, p.16-17, 29.)" (9)

By his first wife, William had the following issue: Luke, named for his maternal grandfather; b. 1642 in Linenburg Parish, Richmond County, Virginia; Edward, second son, b. ca. 1646. [No document proof of this information].

Children from this marriage were:

          i.   Luke Thornton (born in 1642 - died in 1725)

         ii.   Edward Thornton (born in 1646)

        iii.   Esther Thornton (born about 1650)


601. Elizabeth Rowland was born in 1627.

Elizabeth married William "The Hills" Thornton, II on 27 Mar 1648 in York Co., VA.

602. Capt. Anthony Savage, son of Anthony Savage and Elizabeth Hall , was born in 1605 in Broadway, Worcester, England and died on 5 Jun 1695 in Jamestown, VA at age 90.

624. Michael Newbold, son of Thomas Newbold and Jane or Joanna Syms , was born about 1 Jul 1623 and died on 19 May 1692 in Burlington County, NJ 25 at age 68.

Notes and Events:

• of: Handsworth-Woodhouse, Yorkshire, England. Handsworth and Woodhouse are seperate townships about one mile apart, north and south. It is assumed the repetitive reference by seperate sources ,utilizing both names, implies that there was an obvious family community and church between the two townships.

The Newbold family's English roots, and that of the Newbold spouses, hail from an area four to five miles southeast of Sheffield in Yorkshire. The boundary deviding counties Yorkshire and Derbyshire meanders through the area, with some villages being in Yorkshire and other villages, some just a few hundred yards away, being in Derbyshire. The two county names are often used interchangeably along the boundary. View the location of all the townships on the area map which is linked from the home page.

• Note: from "History of Bucks County" page 110, 1678. "...Michael Newbold, of Sheffield Park, Yorkshire, England, who in 1678 purchased one eighth of three nintieth parts of the province of West Jersey, and settled in Springfield township, Burlington county where he died in 1693, leaving a large number of children and grandchildren, some of whomwere still in England..."

[Some of the original land barons purchased lands sight unseen while still in England and traveled to America later to stake their claims]

• Note: from "Genealogies of Pennsylvania Families II" page 520, 1680. immigrated from Sheffield Park, Yorkshire, England to Springfield Township, Burlington County, New Jersey in 1680

• Note: from "Early Philadelpia Families" page 207:, 1681. "...Michael Newbold, who in 1681 had come from Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, and had bought a large tract of land in Burlington County, West Jersey. He was the ancestor of the Newbold family of Philadelphia."

• Historical Note: Michael Newbold and his issue were, quite literally, in the middle of the founding of a great nation in history. In 1678 Michael Newbold of England, purchased one eighth of three ninetieth parts of the province of West Jersey. He traveled across the great ocean to claim and settle his purchase.

Both secular and religious motives are evident in the founding of Pennsylvania. Proprietor William Penn was a "landed gentleman" having inherited estates in England and Ireland from his father, Admiral Sir William Penn. Like others of his class, he was caught in an inflationary squeeze. Income from his tenants was fixed by custom, while the cost of living was rising. Penn (and others) saw expansion of their land holdings as a solution to this problem. Nevertheless, Penn was more than a real estate promoter; he was a visionary who dreamed of a colony where people could live together harmoniously. This seemed to him impossible in the Europe of the 1600s with its frequent wars and almost constant religious discrimination and at times intense persecution.

Essential to Penn was freedom of worship. He had become a member of the Religious Society of the Friends of God, commonly called Quakers. They did not attend services in their parish churches. In private homes and plain meeting houses they worshiped in silence unless a Friend were inspired by the Holy Spirit to speak. They permitted women to address their meetings. They refused to swear oaths and were pacifists. As a result, the English magistrates physically abused, fined, and imprisoned them. Penn himself was confined in the Tower of London at times.

Consequently, on June 24, 1680, Penn asked King Charles II (1660-1685) for a charter for land in America. The only available tract in eastern North America lay west of New Jersey, north of Maryland, and south of New York, an area that England had conquered from the Dutch in 1664 and which the King had given to his brother James, the Duke of York. After appropriate discussions the King granted Penn's request on March 4, 1681.

Subsequently, the lands heretofore known as part of the west Jersey province were divided along the Delaware River with the lands west of the river becoming Penn's province.

Across the river to the east, the court in Burlington was established in the Province of West Jersey in 1681; the boundary between Burlington and Gloucester counties was first set up in 1692. This boundary lay due east across the river from the north edge of Philadelphia City.

Bucks county (on the west side of the river) was one of the three original counties created by William Penn in November 1682. Bucks is named for Buckinghamshire in England, where the Penn's had lived for generations. Doylestown replaced Newtown as the county seat in 1812 and was incorporated as a borough on April 16, 1838. It was named for William Doyle, an innkeeper. The county was re-formed by the union of the first and second Tenths of West Jersey on 17 May 1694. Portions of the original Burlington County became Hunterdon (1714) and Mercer (1838) counties. Most original settlers were Quakers, and William Penn’s estate was at Pennsbury Manor. Michael Newbold had lands established in Bucks county and was one of it's original founders, though he established his families homestead across the river in the Springfield township.

Bordering to the south of Bucks county, Philadelphia was also one of the three original counties created by William Penn in November 1682. Its name to him signified “brotherly love,” although the original Philadelphia in Asia Minor was actually “the city of Philadelphus.” Philadelphia was laid out in 1682 as the county seat and the capital of the Province; it was chartered as a city on October 25, 1701, and rechartered on March 11, 1789. On February 2, 1854, all municipalities within the county were consolidated with the city. It is in this city that Thomas Howard and his wife, Grace, settled in the early 1700's and became progenitors to a line of descendants which would, in future generations, conjoin with the Newbold's and create a lineage rich in history.

The third of the three original counties formed by William Penn in November 1682 was Chester. It did not become an inland county until 1789 when the eastern portion was established as Delaware county. Its name derives from Cheshire (i.e., Chester-shire), England, from which many of its early settlers came.

Proved before Isaac Secour Surrogate on the 9th day of April 1720, and probate sealed last of May 1720.

Thomas married Mary Barnard on 30 Oct 1668 in Devonshire House, Westbury Street Friends' Meeting, Bishopsgate street, London, England.

Marriage Notes: (A)-The Bull and Mouth was lost in the Great Fire of 1666. Before it was rebuilt Friends took a lease on a house on Bishopsgate owned by the Earl of Devonshire.

After extensions in 1794, Devonshire House was used for the Yearly Meeting, previously held mostly at Gracechurch Street; also for the executive body, called Meeting for Sufferings because it arose from a system of reporting anti-Quaker persecution. The Recording Clerk recorded the Sufferings, and became the general administrator of the Society.

Devonshire House came to house the Recording Clerk's office, and also the Library, set up in 1673 when it was decided to collect two copies of everything written by Quakers, and one copy of everything written against them.

The Devonshire House premises came to be increasingly cramped and dismal, until the offices moved to the newly built Friends House in 1926, opposite Euston Station. Devonshire House was demolished, but is still part of the name of the local Monthly Meeting to which Bunhill and Stoke Newington belong.

Notes and Events:

• Alt. Death: Note by James L. Stokes, 1699. The Genealogy of the Stokes Family indicates that Mary Bernard died in 1699 but "Genealogical Records of John Wills", (National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Vol. 42 #2, 1954) shows that Mary was buried on the 18th of the 3rd month (May), 1697. She probably died a day or two before her burial, based on those cases where both a date of death and a date of burial are given in the article.

Mary married Thomas Stokes on 30 Oct 1668 in Devonshire House, Westbury Street Friends' Meeting, Bishopsgate street, London, England.

• Occupation: Fuller. The first fuller in Oyster Bay may have been Isaac Horner who in 1677-8 and again in 1684-5 was granted "ye privilege of ye Stream at ye Beaver Swamp by ye Sho ... to set up a Fulling Mill." [G.W. Cocks, Old Matinecock ] A mill privilege was the right to dam running water for power even though it might back up on land not owned by the operator. Against Horner's primacy is Merle-Smith's comment that "As early as 1668 a fulling mill was established at Mosquito Cove."

Isaac married Lydia Wright on 17 Mar 1683 in Oyster Bay, Nassau Co., Long Island, NY.

She was tried and prosecuted, with three other women, for her Quaker beliefs by the New England Court on 4 August 1677 in Boston, Massachusetts. Her concluding words were "I believe thou speakest truth, for if you worshipped that God which we worship, you would not persecute his people, for we worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and the same God that Daniel worshipped.'' The clerk read their sentence as follows:

"Margaret Brewster, you are to have your clothes stript off to the middle, and to be tied to a cart's-tail at the South meeting-house, and to be drawn through the town, and to receive twenty stripes upon your naked body."

"Lydia Wright and Mary Miles, you are to be tied to the cart's-tail also. Barbara Bowers you are to be tied also."

She endured this disgraceful sentence with Margaret Brewster, two martyr-friends, on 9 August 1677 in Boston, Massachusetts. They then shook the dust of Boston streets from their feet, and travelled back to Sandwich. They went thence to Rhode Island, that little State in the "corner" of New-England, where the Quaker was looked upon with more toleration, where there was no persecution for conscience' sake, and where Religious Freedom found a safe retreat. She was given a certificate to pass the winter with the Quaker settlement in the West Indies on 30 December 1682 in 10th month, the Quarterly Meeting, Flushing, Long Island, New York.

She married Isaac Horner Sr., son of Bartholomew Horner Sr. and Bridget (?), on 17 March 1683 in the Meeting House, Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York. She and Isaac Horner Sr. resettled in October 1685 in New Jersey. She and her sister Mary, with their families, sold out their possessions in Oyster Bay and migrated to New Jersey.

1168. Francis Taliaferro, son of Bartholomew Tallafer and Joane Lane , was born from 17 Jan 1589 to 1590,was christened from 25 Jan 1589 to 1590 in St. Olave's, Hart Street, London, England,and was buried on 19 Aug 1647 in Stepney, Middlesex, England.

General Notes: Francis TALIAFERRO, the son of Bartholomew TALIAFERRO and wife Joane LANE was baptied at the age of eight days on January 25, 1589/90 at St. Olave's, Hart Street, London. He married Bennett HAIE by license February 3, 1613/14 at St. Savior's, Southwark, County Surrey. After the death of his first wife, sometime between late 1626 and 1647, he married secondly a woman whose given name was Miriam. He and his wife died within a week of each other; he was buried August 19, 1647, at Stepney, County Middlesex, where she had been buried on August 16. By his first wife Bennett HAIE, Francis had two children mentioned in his will. The daughter was Anne who was not married at his death. In an unusual move, in that he had a living son Robert, he named his daughter the executrix of his will. It is possible that this move may be explained by his son's having already emigrated to the colony of Virginia. [from Barbara Breedlove Rollins' Family Files]

Research Notes: The following is from "Barbara Breedlove Rollins' Family Files":
The justification for naming this as the family line of Robert TALIAFERRO, The Immigrant, is set out by WAGNER and ANDRUS as follows:
Speculation on the origin of Robert TALAFERO or TOLLIVER who settled in Virginia by 1647 has ranged from Scotland where the forms TAILLEFER, TALFER, TELFER, and others are found from the thirteenth century onwards, through England where the forms include TOLVER and TULLIVER, through France to Italy where TALIAFERRA and TALIAFERRO are not uncommon. This meant that the surname in itself, being so widespread was of little use as a clue, and it was, therefore, with relief and gratitude for our good furtune that we found in the London area, the likeliest immediate place of origin for an early Virginia settler, references to members of a family of the name which appeared to fit the Virginia data perfectly.

From these, as will be seen, the conclusion has now been reached that Robert the settler was the grandson of Bartholomew TALIAFERRO, a subject of the Duke of Venice, who settled in London and was made denizen in March 1562.

Important points in favour of the identification were that this particular family of TALIAFERRO was the only one found mentioned in the probate records of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury and of London, and that after 1647 the name entirely disappeared from these probate records. Furthermore, letters of administration of the estate of Francis TALAFERO were granted on the 20th of August 1647 to his daughter Anne, not to his son Robert, as we might have expected had he been in England at the time. Robert was then aged twenty years and nine months.

Finally, the emigrant called one of his sons Francis.

Notes and Events:

• Occupation: "Yeoman." Records indicate Francis was a Yeoman in England. Though some genealogist have interpreted this record as meaning farmer (or one calling him a sailor), an old map of London leads me to conclude his vocation may have been one of two more probable definitions. His residency was known as Stepney, County of Middlesex, which is adjacent to Westminster. Additionally, he was Baptized/Christened 4 blocks from the Tower of London. Thus, one logical possibility is the yeoman definition: "an attendant or manservant in a royal or noble household / Officer in the (ceremonial) bodyguard of the British monarch". There are, and have been, many Royals living within the Tower of London, the surrounding neighborhoods, and the adjacent Westminster. Within this definition is the possibilty he was actually a Yeoman warder. Yeoman Warders (often called 'Beefeaters') have been at the Tower of London since the 14th century. Today they combine their traditional ceremonial role with that of tourist guide. Their role as interpreters of the Tower's history to the public has grown beyond their famous tours. They have also been keepers of the Royal Crown Jewels for centuries.

From "Looking at Family History research using Heraldic Visitations to trace back families to the medieval period" (6th edition, January 2002), comes the second possible definition: "...a yeoman or a minor-gentleman (designated in the records as 'Mr') in the 17th Century. It is more than likely that he would have owned some land, unlike most of the husbandman class."

I doubt the 'farmer or landworker' theories for two reasons: 1) A County Middlesex geologist article stating "...besides the Thames, the air is healthy; but the soil, in general being a lean gravel, is not suitable for the planting of crops or pastures. It does, however, provide a firm base for structures." 2) The area of Stepney, has been mostly urban for the past 800 years.

Remember, these are my own conjectures and thus open for debate. In the meantime, we will keep searching for hard evidence. [Erle Gordon Bush, direct descendant]

Francis married Bennett Haie on 3 Feb 1613-1614 in St. Savior's, Southwark, County Surrey, England.

Marriage Notes and Events:

• Marriage Note: The information I have about Francis' first wife, Bennett Haie, comes from a source who tells me somebody else told her. I'm tendering it to you as information you may verify on your own, as a starting place rather than something held out as true. She was baptised in the old St. Margaret, Moses Parish Church, a church destroyed in the London fire of 1666. Its baptismal records from 1558 to 1812 are in the Guild Library in London. The date of baptism is given as October 18, 1587, her father listed as John Haie. She died November 14, 1626, but I don't have parish or other indication of the records for this date. However, assuming she was the mother of Robert Taliaferro, since he was baptized November 19, 1626, at Stepney, County Middlesex, England, it would appear she died in childbirth and the records should be in that church. [from Barbara Breedlove Rollins' Family Files]

Notes and Events:

• Birthplace Note: Manor Tyndall vs The Manor of Tindalls, East Laxham, Norfolk, England. The name "Manor Tyndall " is found repeatedly throughout genealogy family trees, mainly for Sir John Wright. Yet, I can find no such place, or even singularly Tyndall, as a township in all of Great Britain. Also, I cannot find any reference to it OTHER than in family trees. A further search has uncovered the fact that Sir Johns father, Sir Thomas Wright, had "seized of the manors of Tindalls and Rowses, in East Laxham, Norfolk, in the 32d year of the reign of Henry VIII". A logical conclusion is that the constant use of "Manor Tyndall, Norfolk" was originally meant to be the "Manor of Tindalls, East Laxham, Norfolk, England"

• Will: dated 16 Aug 1540 and proved at Canterbury 4 April 1541.
