Edward married (although the exact status of the union is uncertain) Ecgwynn around 893 , and they became the parents of Athelstan and a daughter who married Sihtric, King of Dublin and York, but Ecgwynn was considered too lowly. Nothing is known about Ecgwynn other than her name, which was not even recorded until after the Conquest.

When he became king in 899 , Edward set Ecgwynn aside and married Aelffaed, a daughter of Æthelhelm, the ealdorman of Wiltshire.

Reigned 1199-1216. Signed Magna Carta in 1215 at Runnymede. His reign saw renewal of war with Phillip II Augustus of France to whom he lost several continental possesions including Normandy by 1205. He came into conflict with his Barons and was forced to Sign the Magna Carta. His later repudiation of the charter led to the first barons war 1215-17 during which John died.

Burke says he was born in 1160. John 'Lackland' King Of England was known as one of England's worst kings; however, modern analysis notes he was actually much better than his infamous reputation allows. His barons forced him to grant the famous charter of liberties, Magna Carta, in 1215. He was often cruel, but he showed both administrative and military ability. John succeeded his brother Richard the Lion-Hearted as king of England and duke of Normandy in 1199. His rule began badly. By inept politics and the murder of his nephew Arthur, he lost the allegiance of many of his French barons. King Philip Augustus of France then declared war. In 1205 John was beaten, and lost all the English holdings in France except Aquitaine. John persued a policy in England that brought him into conflict with Pope Innocent III. In 1208 the pope placed England under an interdict, which banned church services. The following year John was excommunicated. The king then showed his capacity for strong rule. He forced Scotland into a subordinate position, kept the Welsh princes in check, and held a firm grip on Ireland. But his foreign favorites, professional troops, and autocratic financial policy stirred up discontent among the English barons. When John failed to reconquer the lost French territories in 1214, most of the barons and many of the clergy revolted. On June 15, 1215, the king was forced to approve the Magna Carta at Runnymede meadow beside the River Thames. A few months later, John fought the barons. They were aided by Prince Louis of France, heir to Philip Augustus, and appeared certain to win. But John penned his enemies in London and the adjacent counties. He died suddenly in 1216, but his throne was saved for his son, Henry III. Buried in Worcester Cathedral Concubine at Kings Manor House, Oxford, Oxfordshire, England Divorced Isabel Fitzrobert 29 August 1189.

Source: "Falls the Shadow" Sharon Kay Penman: William the Conqueror requested a large number of Jews to move to England after his conquest. They spoke Norman & did well under his reign. They continued to thrive under William's grandson Henry II. When Richard was coronated, he did so "in a bath of Jewish blood." John merely taxed them very heavily, "bled them white".

Source: British Monarchy Official Website: Richard's success (at retrieving all of his French possessions taken by Philip Augustus) was short lived. In 1199 his brother, John, became king and Philip successfully invaded Normandy. By 1203 John had retreated to England, losing his French lands of Normandy and Anjou by 1205. John (reigned 1199-1216) was an able administrator interested in law and government but he neither trusted others, nor was trusted by them. Heavy taxation, disputes with the Church (John was excommunicated by the Pope in 1209) and unsuccessful attempts to recover his French possessions made him unpopular. Many of his barons rebelled and in June 1215 they forced the King to sign a peace treaty accepting their reforms. This treaty, later known as Magna Carta, limited royal powers, defined feudal obligations between the king and the barons, and guaranteed a number of rights. The most influential clauses concerned the freedom of the Church; the redress of grievances of owners and tenants of land; the need to consult the Great Council of the Realm so as to prevent unjust taxation; mercantile and trading relationships; regulation of the machinery of justice so that justice be denied to no one; and the requirement to control the behaviour of royal officials. The most important clauses established the basis of habeas corpus ('you have the body'), i.e. that no one shall beimprisoned except by due process of law, and that 'to no one will we sell, to no one will we refuse or delay right or justice'. The Charter also established a council of barons who were to ensure that the sovereign observed the Charter, with the right to wage war on him if he did not. Magna Carta was the first formal document insisting that the sovereign was as much under the rule of law as his people; and that the rights of individuals were to be upheld even against the wishes of the sovereign. As a source of fundamental constitutional principles, Magna Carta came to be seen as an important definition of aspects of English law, and in later centuries as the basis of the liberties of the English people. As a peace treaty Magna Carta was a failure and the rebels invited Louis of France to become their king. When John died in 1216 England was in the grip of civil war.

During Simon de Montfort's barons war, March 31, 1264 Londoners riot (London was very pro de Montfort), burn townhouses of the hated William de Lusignan, also prominent Royalist Lord Philip Basset, also Richard of Cornwall's Westminster manor, & his beloved Isleworth manor 7 miles away. Richard overnight goes from trying to mediate a solution to, like Edward, ardently desiring a battlefield confrontation. Richard was not popular with his brother Henry III's subjects as he was intelligent, pragmatic, had business acumen, & a lack of rancor; these qualities were disdained in favor of reckless courage, battlefield prowess, & open-handed generosity, which was expected of Lords. Richard's courage was never suspect; but he was not an innovative nor brilliant military commander. At Battle of Lewes on 14 May 1264, Richard commanded the left flank of the Royalist forces. After Prince Edward left the battle to pursue with unwholesome savagery the rebel Londoner flank of Montfort's forces, Montfort, keeping a reserve force (a tactic unheard of) came in & attacked Henry & obliterated his force; Henry fleed to the priory. Gilbert de Clare's center column forces met Richard's & took the day. Richard with his son Edmund fled into a windmill. When de Clare's forces captured the, they jeered "come out king of the millers". John Giffard's squire was the one who officially accepted Richard's royal surrender, adding to Richard's discomposure (that he had surrendered to a squire rather than a knight). Upon his presentation to Simon de Montfort, Simon made the lad, John Befs of Tewkesbury, a knight.

General Notes: Source: British Monarchy Official Website:

Henry III (reigned 1216-1272), John's son, was only nine when he became king. By 1227, when he assumed power from his regent, order had been restored based on his acceptance of Magna Carta. However, the king's failed campaigns in France, his choice of foreigners as friends and advisers, together with the cost of his scheme to make one of his younger sons king of Sicily and help the Pope against the Holy Roman Emperor, led to further disputes with the barons and united opposition in Church and State. The Provisions of Oxford (1258) and the Provisions of Westminster (1259 were attempts by the nobles to curb the king's power, control appointments and set up an aristocratic council. Henry renounced the Provisions in 1264 and war broke out. The barons under their leader, Simon de Montfort, were initially successful, but Henry and his son, Edward, finally defeated and killed de Montfort at the Battle of Evesham in 1265. Royal authority was restored by the Statute of Marlborough (1267), in which the king also promised to uphold Magna Carta and some of the Provisions of Westminster.

Source: Sharon Kay Penman "Falls the Shadow":

In April 1258, Henry's brother Richard of Cornwall sent 50 ships of grain from Germany (where Richard was chasing the elusive crown of Germany) to London to help alleviate the famine, Henry siezed the ships & tried to sell them at inflated prices. This enraged the general populace of London, Henry backed down but they remained bitter. After Henry reconciled with Prince Edward through the mediation of Richard of Cornwall (Henry thought Edward was plotting with Simon de Montfort), Henry attempted to try de Montfort on charges of perjery & "lesse-majeste". The Barons on the King's Council baulked & Louis IX was dismayed by Henry's bad faith, & sent the Archbishop of Rouen to defend de Montfort, Henry backed off. In June 1261 Henry borrows from his father John's tricks & gets the Pope to annul the Oxford Provisions, even as John did with the Magna Charta. The Barons nearly revolt over this, with even Richard de Clare, Earl of Gloucester, siding with de Montfort. Later, de Clare defects from de Montfort & comes to a "private understanding" with Henry & de Montofrt's "common enterprise" unravels. Simon withdraws to France. In July 1262, Henry follows de Montfort into France & tries to have him arraigned before the French King, Louis IX, but the attempt fails. Simon returns to England April 1263, which most felt meant a precursor to war. May 1263 the de Montfort supporters meet & vow all are enemies who do not support the Provisions save the King & his family. Henry held fast, the barons' discontent flared into violence & Simon's supporter the Earl of Derby sacked the town of Worcester & burned the Jewry. May 1263 the young Earl of Gloucester led an Army west & captured the Bishop of Hereford, the most hated of the foreign advisors to Henry III then left after the expulsion of the de Lusignans. He threw the Bishop into prison, laid siege to the royal castle at Gloucester, where de Montfort assumed command. The army then went north to Bridgenorth, where they coordinated their attack with Llywelyn ap Gruffydd; the twon & castle surrendered. de Montfort then headed south for London, where a panicked Henry took refuge in the Tower. In June 1263 Prince Edward's foreign Flemish troops burned Bristol; the populace rose up & besieged him & his army in the castle. The Bishop of Worcester placated the townsfolk by taking Edward's pladge to make peace with de Montfort & the barons (which Edward had no intention of honoring his pledge). In October 1263 Richard Duke of Cornwall (Henry's brother) son Henry defected to Montfort. Simon received a triumphal entry into London July 1263 & Henry capitulated at the Tower of London on July 13, 1263.

Reigned 1216-1272. A minor when he took the throne he did not take the reigns of Government himself until 1234. Baronian discontent simmered, boiling over in 1258 when Henry facing financial disaster attempted to raise large sums from his magnates. Reforms were agreed upon but then renouced by Henry. Simon de Montford lead a rebellion against the King (the Barons Wars) which was defeated after initial success, thereafter Hnery ceeded much of his power to his son. Henry III ran afoul of his barons (again) when he requested a large amount of money to aid him in putting down Gaston de Béarn's 2nd rebellion in Gascony, saying that de Béarn's ally St. Ferdinand III King of Castile was going to invade Gascony, but just as he said this, Simon de Montfort returned to England & told the barons that Henry was actually negotiating with the St. Ferdinand III to marry his daughter Eleanor to Henry's son Crown Prince Edward "Longshanks" (de Montfort's commetns were true). At this point, with Henry's many debacles, his lack of resolve & constancy, the reforms were going to be made with or without his participation.

Source: "Falls the Shadow" Sharon Kay Penman: William the Conqueror requested a large number of Jews to move to England after his conquest. They spoke Norman & did well under his reign. They continued to thrive under William's grandson Henry II. When Richard was coronated, he did so "in a bath of Jewish blood." John merely taxed them very heavily, "bled them white". The Jews did the worst of all under the pious Henry III as during his reign the church felt threatened by violence, war, schism & heresy. The church encouraged Jewish pogroms & spread rumors of grisly rituals & murders committed by Jews. Henry, as a faithful son of the church, did nothing to restrain it.

General Notes: Source: British Monarchy Official Website:

Edward I (1272-1307), who succeeded his father, was an able administrator and law maker. He re-established royal power, investigating many of the abuses resulting from weak royal government and issuing new laws. Edward was an effective soldier, gaining experience from going on crusade to Egypt and Syria before he became king. In 1276 Edward invaded Wales where Llewelyn ap Gruffydd, Prince of Wales, had built up considerable power. In a series of campaigns Edward gained control of Wales, building strong castles to secure his conquests. Llewelyn was killed and in 1284, the Statute of Wales brought Wales under Edward's rule. In 1301, he created his eldest son, Edward, the first English Prince of Wales. Wanting to unite the country behind him and to raise money for all these campaigns, in 1295 the king called what became known as the 'Model Parliament'. To this he summoned not only the aristocracy and the prelates, but also the knights of the shires, burgesses from the towns and junior clergy, thus creating a Parliament in approximately its modern form. From this date onwards, this system of representation became the norm. In 1296 Edward invaded Scotland, successfully seizing the king of Scots and the Stone of Scone. However, a guerrilla war broke out and William Wallace, the Scottish leader, defeated the English at Stirling Bridge. Wallace was finally captured and executed in 1305. Edward died in 1307, when he was about to start another campaign against the Scots. In 1314 Robert the Bruce, who had become king of Scots in 1306, defeated the English at the Battle of Bannockburn.

He was on fairly friendly & respectful terms with his uncle, Simon de Montfort, and even initially supported Simon's calls for honoring the Oxford Provisions. But, after Richard of Cornwall's mediation in the dispute between Edward & his father Henry, Simon had his final break with de Montort in April 1260. In late June 1260, Edward, attempting to alleviate Henry's money crisis, by subterfuge under cover of darkness requested admittance into the New Temple of the Knights Templar in London & robbed the treasuries of the city guilds. In June 1263 Prince Edward's foreign Flemish troops burned Bristol; the populace rose up & besieged him & his army in the castle. The Bishop of Worcester, Walter de Cantelou placated the townsfolk by taking Edward's pladge to make peace with de Montfort & the barons (Edward had no intention of honoring his pledge). March 1264 Simon's sons Henry & Bran de Montfort trap Prince Edward at Gloucester Castle, but Edward solemnly avows to Henry (they were extremely close, growing up together) that if Henry grants him a truce he will work with King Henry & Richard of Cornwall to arrange a truce & avoid war. Henry de Montfort was in command, & believed him. Edward was lying through his teeth. As soon as Henry & Bran de Montfort's army were out of sight, Edward siezed the town & imposed harsh fines & penalties. On April 5 1264 the defeat at Northampton by Edward of Simon's forces (de MOntfort was in London) crippled rebel forces. Northampton defenses had been allowed to decay in the years previous to de Montfort's occupation there, plus the battle was lost due to the treachery of the Prior at St. Andrew's. After the defeat, Edward allowed his army to have their sport on the town, culminating in utter destruction, rapine, murder, etc. of its inhabitants. Some 80 barons & knights were taken prisoner & the rebel army was gutted. The defeat touched off a riot in London (since Londoners were very favorable to Simon) on Apr 9, 1264 in which hundreds, mainly Jews, were slain. In May 1264 Edward looted lands of Robert de Ferrers, the Earl of Derby, & after Derby lost Tutbury Castle, he defected from Simon's support. King Henry meanwhile took Leicester & Nottingham. Simon & Gilbert de Clare attacked Rochester Castle (which surrendered) & besieged the town when Edward approached London so Simon went back to defend it. King Henry & Edward were practicing fierce cruelty by chopping off the nads & feet of all common soldiers captured from de Montfort's army. The Cinque Ports & Dover Castle held fast for Simon, & did not obey Henry & Edward's command for a naval force to attack London. Thwarted, Edward takes Gilbert de Clare's Tonbridge Castle. Simon continued to hold London, but was surrounded by Edward & Henry. In May 1264, the Bishop of Chichester tried to convince Henry III to negotiate, but he refused. The Bishops of London & Worcester (Walter de Cantelou) try to do the same on the eve of the Battle of Lewes; again Henry refuses. At Lewes, Montfort was outnumbered 2:1; Royalist forces numbered some 10,000. Montfort introduced a new strategy to warfare; he established a reserve command to be commanded by himself, plus he intoduced the concept of the night march. He was thought to be miles away by the Royalist forces on the eve of the battle, but he & his army undertook a night march to focre the battle on May 14, 1264. Henry was utterly taken by surprise, & his garrison lodged at the Priory were in some confusion; however, Edward, who garrisoned his men at Lewes Castle, was able to meet the rebel left flank of greenhorn & untrained Londoners under the command of Nicholas de Segrave. Edward routed them with no care for the "rules" of war in that he & his knights undertook a pursuit miles away from the battle only to slay every man they could find. This was thought caused by the Londoner's steadfast support for Monfort and their animosity toward Henry & especially Edward's mother Queen Eleanor (including the London mob's attack on her barge July 1263). From these beginnings Edward had a lifelong hatred for Londoners. On the eve of the Battle of Lewes, 14 May 1264, after Henry had refused the entreaty of the Bishops of London & Worcester (Walter de Cantelou) to negotiate, Simon formally renounced all allegiance to Henry, & was followed by his men. including Gilbert de Clare, Hugh le Despenser, Humfrey de Bohun VI "the Younger", John Giffard, Sir John FitzJohn, Nicholas de Segrave, & Robert de Vere. Clare & Vere had the most to lose of any rebel supporters. At the battle itself, the left flank of green & hastily trained but no battle-experience Londoners was under the command of Nicholas de Segrave with 2nd an inexperienced John Giffard; the right flank was commanded by Simon's sons Henry & Guy de Montfort (Bran still being held in captivity at Windsor Castle by Henry) with 2nd Humphrey de Bohun VI "the Younger", the center column was commanded by Gilbert de Clare, 2nded by Sir John FitzJohn, with Simon himself commanding the new reserve force 2nded by Hugh le Despenser. For the Royalists, Henry commanded the center column, Richard of Cornwall commanded the left flank, & Edward commanded the vanguard. Royalist forces outnumbered the rebels by some 2:1 with some 10,000 men. Henry's force was augmented by a Scots force sent by his son in law Alexander III the Glorious, King of Scotland. With Edward were Dafydd ap Gruffydd, Hugh le Bigod, Henry Plantagenet of Almaine, Richard of Cornwall's son (& Edward's cousin & Simon's nephew), & John de Warenne. At the time of the battle, Simon was thought to be miles away, & still unable to ride a horse due to his broken leg. After Edward had absented himself from the field so long (carrying out his vengeance on the Londoners) Simon attacked & obliterated King Henry's force. Henry fled to the Priory. Richard of Cornwall was captured by Gilbert de Clare. When Edward & his men found out, Edward was urged to flee to Pevensey Castle & from there toward France. Edward refused to abandon his father, but the de Lusignans fled the battle, as did John de Warenne, Hugh le Bigod, Dafydd ap Gruddydd & over 300 knights. Only Edward's cousin Henry of Almaine (Richard of Cornwall's son) & Edwards household knights remained with him. Edward got through John FitzJohn's surrounding encampment to his father in the priory, Simon then offered a 12 hour truce & accepted their surrender the following morning. Lewes resulted in 2700 known dead (one of every five men). Under the Mise of Lewes, the Oxford Provisions were again reinstated as the law of the land, with an arbitration commission. Under no circumstances could Henry appoint aliens onto his council. Henry's extravagent spending was also to be brought under control & he to live within his means & pay off his enormous debts. A full amnesty was proclaimed for all rebels. No ransoms were to be paid for men captured at Lewes nor earlier at Northampton. Edward & Henry of Almaine surrendered themselves as hostages for their fathers' good faith. Edward was confined at Wallingford Castle with Richard of Cornwall. King Henry was lodged securely at the palace of the Bishop of London, In June 1264, Simon called a Parliament, one that included knights & town officials. The effect of Lewes that while Henry was still King, Simon had command of the realm. He also called for the terms of the Chivalric code to cover not only knights, but also commoners & Jews. In October 1264, the Pope (who hated Simon & the English Lords who had refused to succor his (the Pope's) abortive plans for Sicily) formally excommunicated Simon, his sons Henry, Bran & Guy, Gilbert de Clare, Hugh le Despenser, the Mayor of London Thomas FitzThomas, & many of their supporters. The Bishops of Worcester, London & Winchester refused to publish the sentence of anathema; the Pope laid England under Interdict Oct 21 1264, but the English clergy continued to support Simon & services & rites of the Church continued to be performed. After the great victory, Simon's problems with governing began to mount. He wielded the King's authority without the right, & many began to question his motives for power. Also, an economic crises mounted as the sailors of the Cinque Ports had siezed all shipping in the Channel. In November 1264, kinsmen of the Earl of Hereford, Humphrey de Bohun V (Humphrey de Bohun VI was a staunch Montfort supporter) waged an attack on Wallingford Castle to free Edward. Guy de Montfort, Edward's cousin & Simon's son, cooly told Edward to have the besiegers call off the attack or he (Guy) would order Edward hurled at them in the Castle mangonel. Such was the bad blood between them that Edward did as ordered. At the Battle of Kenilworth, Edward borrowed from Simon's never before heard of tactics & underwent & forced night march of 30 miles & surprised Bran de Montfort outside Kenilworth Castle (Bran had foolishly encamped outside, rather than in, the castle). Bran had a large army & cache of supplies gathered for the relief of Simon, who had been trapped in Wales for a month; however, Bran had been lax in speedily coming to his father's rescue & in enforcing military discipline. Edward's forces completely overwhelmed Bran's army; Edward captured so many horses he was able to mount every man in his army. At Evesham (4 Aug 1265) Edward flew false colors of Robert de Vere of Oxford (captured at Kenilworth) & of Bran and entrapped Simon there. It was less a battle than a slaughter; Edward allowed his men to mutilate the dead, etc.

In the Barons war 1264-67 he defeated the Barons at Evesham (1265) as King he is noted for encouraging Parliamentary institutions at the expence of feaudalism and for subdueing Wales on which he imposed the English system of administration. This was after his first campaign in Wales when he was still prince. He & his father Henry III were led an army into Gwynedd & were defeated at Deganwy Castle August 1257 leaving all of Wales (and all of Prince Edward's Welsh lands) in the control of Llywelyn ap Gruffydd. Edward & Henry's forces were defeated by Llywelyn in less than a month. He later tried to assert his authority over Scotland and died while on his way to fight Robert Bruce.

Coat of Arms
With the introduction of armor in the 12th century, identification of the warriors became more difficult as much of the body and face was covered.

By necessity an emblem or insignia was required for identification of knights in battles or tournaments. The markings on the fighter's shield became known as the shield of arms. The knight often carried another distinguishing mark on top of his helmet, known as the crest, which did not necessarily relate to any feature on his shield of arms.

From the 14th century onward, it became fashionable for social purposes to join with the personal arms the arms of other families connected by marriage. The personal arms alone, however, appeared on a knight's defensive shield, and it is those which continued as the nominal arms of the family.

Heraldry is the science of Coats of Arms. The College of Arms in London was established in 1484 and is responsible for regulating and approving Coats of Arms. John Wingfield was York Herald of the College of Arms from 1663-1674.

The Wingfield shield is described as Argent (silver), on a bend Gules (red) Cotised (narrow band on each side of, and parallel with) Sable (black), three sets of wings conjoined in lure Argent (silver).

The crest is the design above the shield. This can vary with family branch. Shown here is the high bonnet with wings situated on a torse or wreath (cord of six twists of alternate colors).

There is no record of explanation for the drops of blood on the bonnet and wing of the crest. It is assumed that the blood drops are in honor of Wingfield family members that died in service to their King.

Underneath is the motto on a banner "Posse Nolle Nobile", Latin for "To have the power without the wish is noble."

The bonnet and motto on this Coat of Arms is from the Tickencote branch. The shield is always the same for other branches.

The shield of arms accompanied by the crest, torse, motto and other supports is called an Achievement.

General Notes: I have taken the following information from J Craig Canada's Family Tree

We first find Thomas Keene living on Kent Island. This island, which lies just off the coast of Maryland in Chesapeake Bay, was first colonized in 1631 when Col. William Clayborne of Virginia led a band of about 100 colonists there and established a trading post. In 1632 the colonists sent a representative to the Virginia Assembly at Jamestown. However, Lord Baltimore had been granted a claim which overlapped that of Virginia and on February 27, 1634, after a long and stormy voyage, 300 of his colonists reached Maryland. A conflict then arose between the Kent Islanders, who wished to belong to Virginia and the Marylanders who claimed the island for their colony. This dispute lasted for fifteen years.

In Dec 1636 Capt George Evelin appeared on Kent Island and put himself in the good graces of the inhabitants by seeming to favor their claims to Virginia allegiance. Early in 1637, however, he changed sides and by trickery and double-dealing managed to supplant Col. Clayborne as leader of the colony. He was given the title of Commander of Kent Island by Gov. Calvert of Maryland and became a virtual dictator over the inhabitants. Streeter says 'John Struman, Sr. and Thomas Keyme, coopers,' were directed to devote their time to making pipe-staves, assisted by seven servants. April 30, 1638, we find this record: 'Entered by Capt. George Evelin for the Manor of Evelinton in the Baronie of St. Maries:' Following this were the names of 23 men among them Thomas Keane, William Medcalf, Matthew Roadham and Thomas Orley, all of whom later moved to Northumberland County, VA, just across the Potomac River from St. Marys County, Md. This might mean that Capt Evelin was responsible for bringing these colonists to Kent Island form England or merely that he took them form Kent Island to St. Marys. Many of the names listed were mentioned by Streeter as having been on Kent Island.

Thomas Keene may have been one of the original settlers of Kent Island who went there from Virginia with Col. Clayborne in 1631. If he did live for a while on St. Marys, he later returned to Kent Island, where on Nov 9, 1640, he patented 100 acres of land in Hog Pen Creek and Chesapeake Bay on the West. We know that his eldest son was born on Kent in 1642. The Proceedings of the Council of Maryland, 1633-47, give an assessment by Lieut. Grall and Council for levying 2000 pounds of tobacco to the account of the last expedition-'levies upon the county of Kent after the rates following.' Among those levied upon was Thomas Keyne.

In 1644, Col. Clayborne moved to Virginia, taking 100 men, for each of which he received 50 acres of land on the south side of the York River. Thomas Keene was claimed as one of these headrights, though this claim was not recorded until 1653. The land grant states that William Clayborne 'came up the Pamunkey River in the narrows abutting on the mouth of a creek called Tankes, parting same land from the land of Captain John West's running west to a point of land whereon said Col. Clayborne landed his army under his command, in 1644.' Thomas Keene may have served for a time with Col. Clayborne near West Point, Virginia. However, in 1648 he was in St. Marys County, Maryland, where he made the deposition stating his age.

Thomas Keene had moved to Cherry Point, Northumberland County, Virginia by December 9, 1650, on which date he and Willam Presley appraised an estate. (North. R.B. 1650-52. p.48) April 13, 1652, an oath of allegiance to England was taken by a number of Northumberland colonists as follows: 'Those names here subscribed do promise and engage ourselves to be bound and faithful to the Commonwealth of England as it is now without King or House of Lords.' Among other signers were Thomas Keene, Henry Rayner and Thomas Broughton, successive husbands of the same wife. (North. O.B. 1, p. 72) Sept 20, 1652, Thomas Keene was paid 625 pounds of tobacco out of the estate of Henry Barnes. (North. O.B. 2, p.289) Oct 13, 1653, we find recorded: 'Now Know we that I the said Richard Bennett Esq. Governor give and grant unto Thomas Keene five hundred twenty seven Acres of Land Scituate laying and being in the County of Northumberland and abutting Northwest upon the Severall Lands of Ralph Horsly and Edward Coppedge South and South East upon Claughtons Creeke and North East upon Cherry poynt the said Land due unto the said Thomas Keene by and for the transportation of Eleven persons into this Colony to have and to hold...' (L. Gr. B. 3, p.61) Headrights mentioned were Thomas Orley (twice), Archibald Read, Thomas Watson, Margaret Browne, John Earle and wife, Thomas Keene, Mary Keene and William Keene. This was recorded after the death of Thomas and the patent was renewed March 18, 1662.

Thomas Keene, the immigrant ancestor of this family, came first to Virginia and then for some reason went to Kent Island, Maryland, where his eldest child, William Keene was born in 1642. This fact is recorded on the elaborate epitaph on the tombstone of his son William Keene. This tombstone recites a full family history; 'William Keene, son of Thomas and Mary Keene, his wife, was born on Kent Island, Maryland and brought to Virginia where he married etc...' Thomas Keene took the oath of allegiance to the Commonwealth of England on April 13, 1652 in Northumberland County, Virginia. The name is spelled Kane, Cane, on the early records and from this spelling as well as a later spelling it is sure that the name was pronounced as though it were spelled Cayne. The spelling even occurs in a few instances as Keyne. Thomas Keene died about 1659 leaving four very young children to the care of his widow Mary. Mary lost no time in making a second marriage to an Englishman names Thomas Broughton by whom she had no issue nor did Thomas Broughton leave issue by any other wife. He pre-deceased the said Mary and left his estate to her children by her first husband. Thomas Keene, orphan, of the above Thomas Keene was allowed 'one steer for two years schooling, October 10, 1659.'

In the division of the cattle belonging to the orphans of Thomas Keene, deceased, the names of the orphans were given as: William, Thomas, Susanna, and Matthew Keene.

A record dated 30 Apr 1638 shows that Thomas was one of 23 men who were transported to St. Mary's County, MD, by Capt. George Evelin to seat the manor of Evelinton. By 9 Dec 1650 Thomas and his family had relocated to Northumberland Co., VA. Thomas left descendants in Northumberland, Stafford, and Westmoreland County in Virginia.

Research Notes: "Garner-Keene Families of Northern Neck Virginia " by Ruth Ritchie and Sudie Rucker Wood, 1952, pg. 187-193

"He may have been the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Gosnold) Keene of Suffolk, England. That couple did have a son Thomas Keene, named as a grandson in the will of Robert Gosnold of Earleshall, County Suffolk, Esq., 1615. That son also had a cousin, Anthony Gosnold, in Virginia in 1615. But absolute proof that the the son of Thomas and Elizabeth (Gosnold) Keene is the same person as the Thomas Keene of Kent Island, Maryland has not, to the best of my knowledge, yet been established conclusively.

"He lived on Kent Island, Maryland, from probably 1631 until probably 1644. It is possible he was among a group of inhabitants who moved to St. Mary's county, Maryland in 1638, but if so, he returned to Kent Island by 9 Nov 1640. He was probably with a group of islanders led by Col. Clayborne that moved to Northumberland Co., Virginia in 1644, but in 1648 he was resident in St. Marys County, Maryland (just across the Potomac). He resided at Cherry Point, Northumberland Co., Va by 9 Dec 1650 where he died in 1652.

"He was a cooper and possibly merchant by trade, as well as a planter, and directed the making of "pipe staves" while on Kent Island". 216

Elizabeth "Betsy" Withers Winn 1769-1855, in 1796 , daughter of notable Minor Winn Jr. 1730-1813, and Elizabeth Withers 1732-1794, was descended from four Mayflower pilgrims.
                           Betsy, born into southern aristocracy, was raised on the Winn family tobacco plantation named "Eden", east of  Upperville, in Fauquier County, Virginia.
                           Her mother Elizabeth Withers, was grandmother to General Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson, and a cousin to President Andrew Jackson.
   Minor Winn    1797-1877  married Elizabeth Pendleton Shackelford.  He was a well known, highly respected Lawyer and a first Cousin to General Stonewall Jackson. (Ref.)  (Ref.)
   Alcinda Keene  1800-1829 d. young, married the  Hon.  Richard Walker Barton of Winchester,  He raised two children, Daughter Julia Gramme and son Rev. Richard Thomas Barton.
   Isaac Sinclair    1803-1822 d. young, married Miss Poynton of Alexandria, Virginia in 1822 and drowned shortly after his marriage.  With no children, she remarried shortly after his death.
   Moses Lewis    1805-1826 d. young,  was killed by a runaway horse on his twenty first birthday and never married.    Sadly,  Moses and Betsy had to bury three of their children.

                                                  [William or "Bill" (never Billy), was raised by his mother Otey, our neighbor and family friend in Wytheville, VA, whom we vacationed with many times. 
                                                  Growing up without a father, quiet and reserved, he attended school and played  with cousin Tommy Gibson, who introduced him to electronics and science.
                                                  Living in southwestern, VA in the 1950's was an experience.  William's writings of his youth in Wytheville are very accurate.   Ask me about it sometime?]
    Betsy Withers Winn, descended from the aristocratic families of William Withers, William Claiborne, Thomas KeeneRobert Gosnold and their noble ancestors.
    Lord Robert Gosnold was the principle financial  backers of the failed Roanoke Colony in North Carolina, where he sent his cousin, Sir Walter Raleigh in 1586.
    He also financed the founding of the Jamestown Colony and sent his grandson, Capt. Bartholomew Gosnold to lead the first party of explorers and establish the colony.  
    Along with many others, Bartholomew died shortly after arriving in Virginia and the leadership of the colony passed to the arrogant and boastful Captain James Smith.
    Captain Smith rarely mentioned Bartholomew in his 1650 imaginative writings on the founding of Jamestown and claimed credit for the colonial establishment himself.
    Specifically, his incredibly embellished stories of Pocahontas and saving the colony of Jamestown from savages have been passed on as fact for more than 350 years.
    Bartholomew Gosnold is considered by the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities (APVA) to be "The prime mover of the colonization of Virginia".
    He led the first European expedition to
Cape Cod, on May 15, 1602, and established
Martha's Vineyard, one of the earliest English settlements on the continent.
    
Bartholomew Gosnold's grave was recently discovered at the Jamestown Colony Please don't skip this incredible story.

Rev. Isaac Gibson
 b.1828-1906 Born on the family plantation "Bowling Green" in Flint Hill, Rappahannock County, Va, highly respected Clergyman. (Ref.)
  m. Anna Sophie Wingerd,1831-1895 on Feb 28, 1853. Isaac and Anna raised four children during the U.S. Civil War.          

Isaac and Anna moved around avoiding the War and Reconstruction, before settling down in Norristown, Pennsylvania. 
  Rev. Isaac Gibson was an author and well known Clergyman,  and served as Rector of the Old Fork Church in Hanover Co, VA; 1866:
  Assistant Rector of Zion Church in Charlestown, WV; 1866-1868: Rector of St. Martin's Parish, VA; 1868-70:  
  Danville, KY;1870-71:  Calvary Church, Louisville, KY; 1871-72:  briefly at Trinity Church in Covington, KY;
  and finally appointed Priest and
Rector at St. John's Episcopal Church, Norristown, Pennsylvania from 1872 until his death in 1906.
  He is listed in the Norristown City Directory 1888-1893, residing at 27 E. Airy and later 17 E. Elm St in Norristown, PA.
  The Southern Churchman said in his obituary he authored several works on the Higher Criticism,  
  the latest,"Reasons for the Higher Criticism" written in 1900, being well-known.   He also wrote:
  "Leading Higher Critics on the Origin of the Levitical Law"in 1894; 
  "The Pentateuch and Joshua" in 1895; and the "Reasons for the Higher Criticisms of the Hexateuch" written in 1897.

   I have copies of some of these books,  they all can be found in the library of St. John's Episcopal Church in Norristown, Pennsylvania.]
      John Shackelford b. 23 Dec1853  d. 4 Dec 1912  m. Ilicia Wheeler Davis daughter of Dr. James Marvin Davis.  John was a genealogist and an Episcopal Clergyman like his father.

      Muscoe Minor  b. 1859 - 1932  m. Amy Bower Whitton, the daughter of  Mary Cooke Cushman and Joseph Morris Bower Whitton.  Both Mary and Joseph had amazing pedigrees of nobility.

                                         With their young children, they witnessed the destruction and burning of the family plantations in Upperville, on June 21, 1863.
                                         John Shackleford's memories, as a nine year old writing of the destruction and burning of his home, are especially poignant.
                                                       [Although the Gibson family records indicated plantation destruction by the Union Army, they were probably  destroyed by the fleeing Confederate Army,
                                                       or even by family members and neighbors, to prevent the capture of  assets and valuable property by the approaching Yankee forces.]
                                         
Almost 100 Gibson men served in the Civil War, some fighting against brothers and cousins.  Many were killed and never returned home to their families.  
                                                       A significant number of Gibson children were raised without a father after the war ended. and the age of  the "Planter Aristocracy of the South" was abolished forever.
                                         The old Gibson family Hillsborough Plantation property, now a successful winery, still uses the Hillsborough name.

  m.Amy Bower Whitton 1870-1917,  Jan 1896,  raised in High Society Philadelphia, was the daughter of Mary Cooke Cushman and Joseph Morris Bower Whitton.
                                                  Through her mother, she was a direct descendant of King Edward III, and cousin to presidents Jackson, Coolidge and both Roosevelts.
                                                  Her mother, Mary Cooke Cushman,1839-1876, was a direct descendant of nine Mayflower Pilgrims, and her father descended from four.
                                                  She was also a direct descendant of the Putnam and Hutchinson families of Salem, MAGeneral Israel Putnam also descended from this family.

                                                  that resulted in the ex
ecution or imprisonment of almost 200 member of the community. Well worth further investigation,
                                                  
it is one of the most significant, emotional and tragic events in American history. Coincidently, our family home has seven gables.
