Dear Will,

The Genealogics database (I miss Leo) has much of Jack Brooksbank's ancestry, in addition to the 2nd Earl of Leicester, whose ancestry you researched and linked to above:
http://www.genealogics.org/pedigree.php?personID=I00695045&tree=LEO&parentset=0&display=standard&generations=7

One line that Genealogics is missing is a Henry VII one for Jack's Brooksbank paternal line. Here it is:

** Leo has Margaret Graham in his database, with no parents or ancestry, here:
http://www.genealogics.org/getperson.php?personID=I00695049&tree=LEO
Margaret was the daughter of William Graham of Burntshields, Renfrewshire (1786-1854) & his 1st wife Katherine Swanston (d. 1836), and Margaret's ancestry can be traced through the Graham article in 'Burke's Family Records' (1897), pp. 267-271. With a quick glance, I don't immediately notice any Edward I lines, but further research may unveil some.
https://archive.org/details/familyrecords01burk/page/n555

Other yet-to-be-researched lines of Jack Brooksbank's ancestry from the Genealogies database should reveal further royal descents. For example, Leo has Thomas Charlton Meyrick, an ancestor of Jack's mother Nicola Newton, here:
http://www.genealogics.org/getperson.php?personID=I00695060&tree=LEO
Per a March 2018 post (#62) to the The Royal Forums, Sir Thomas Charlton (later Meyrick), 1st Baronet, descends not only from Charles II, but from the Calvert Lords Baltimore, and so from Lady Mary Carey, the Other Boleyn Girl:

I haven't had time to verify the line of descent, but hope to soon.

In the ancestry of Anne Amelia Keppel, the wife of Dr. Matthew Combe of Winchester, was Hannah Oglander, daughter of Sir John Oglander, Bt., also of royal descent.
Susanna Oglander (b. 1678; d. Chernocke House, St Thomas Street, Winchester, bur. 17 July 1758 Winchester Cathedral), wife of Dr. Matthew Combe of Winchester (b. 20 Nov. 1662; d. 23 Feb. 1749, bur. 1 Mar. 1749 Winchester Cathedral), has several lines of descent from Edward I. Here's one from John Howard, 1st Duke of Norfolk:

1) John Howard, 1st Duke of Norfolk (d. 1485, descended from Edward I) had
2) Lady Isabel Howard (c.1445-1506) m. Sir Robert Mortimer (1442-1485), and had

I see that Jack Brooksbank has a descent from the Baker-Cresswell family, a line I’m very familiar with. Through a Gordon-Cumming marriage there are five descents from Henry VII via James V of Scots; by my last count, there are some 320 paths from Edward III down to Mary Emma Baker-Cresswell, great-great-grandmother of Jack Brooksbank.

I'll be looking forward to your post on Thomas Meyrick. I can see royal descents behind Meyricks a couple of generations in front of Thomas Meyrick, but I haven't been able to identify the last couple of generations before Thomas. Meyrick of Bush is a hard family to trace...

Hi Brad,
I'm passing along some of the sources I used when researching Jack's descent from Charles II via the Meyrick-Willis-Calvert families.
1) Charles II & Barbara Villiers
2) Lady Charlotte Fitzroy (1664-1718) m. Sir Edward Lee, 1st Earl of Lichfield
3) Lady Charlotte Lee (1678-1723) m. (1) Benedict Leonard Calvert, 4th Baron Baltimore
4) Jane Calvert (1702-1778) m. 1720 Col. John Hyde
5) Catherine Hyde (1745-1823) m. 1774 Rev. Thomas Willis
6) Jane Caroline Willis (1777-1802) m. 1796 Thomas Meyrick
7) Jane Sophia Meyrick (1801-1837) m. 1820 St. John Chiverton Charlton
8) Sir Thomas Charlton Meyrick (born Charlton) (1837-1921), 1st Baronet K.C.B., m. 1860 Mary Rhoda Hill
9) Brig. Gen. Sir Frederick Charlton Meyrick (1862-1932), 2nd Baronet C.B., m. 1897 Mary Emma Baker Cresswell O.B.E
10) Mary Cicely Meyrick (1899-1972) m. 1921 Giles Fendall Newton
11) Capt. Michael Anthony Fendall Newton (1923-2006) m. 1949 Joanna Katherine Holland

13) Jack Christopher Stamp Brooksbank (b. 1986)

Dear Gawin,

Your detailed sources on Generations 4 to 7 above are much appreciated. What a wonderful line to have worked out. The 'Calvert-Baron Baltimore' article in 'Burke's Dormant & Extinct Peerages' states only that the 4th Lord Baltimore's younger daughter was "Jane, m. -- Hyde, of Bucks, and d. July, 1778." The Meyrick article in the most recent 'Burke's Peerage' (2003) states only that, "THOMAS MEYRICK, of Bush, had an only dau: JANE SOPHIA Meyrick; m 7 Sept 1820 St John Chiverton CHARLTON, of Apley Castle."

That you were able to fill in the details and compile the information on the intervening generations, using primary sources and without an already existing pedigree - I'm impressed with your research!

I'll second John Higgins's comment - I'm looking forward to your post on the ancestry for Thomas Meyrick of Bush Hall. As you are no doubt already aware, the 'Burke's Peerage' Meyrick article is of no real use on this line.

Thanks again for sharing your research.

Cheers, ----Brad

Brad,

Thank you for your kind words. I would like to take credit for discovering this line but I can't. The Wikipedia entry for Jane Caroline (Willis) Meyrick's brother John Willis Fleming states he was a great-grandson of Benedict Calvert 4th Baron Baltimore and Charlotte Lee. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Willis_Fleming

So all I had to do was find primary sources proving the relationship.

Now for Thomas Meyrick's royal descent from Edward III. Rather than post the many different lines, I'm only posting his descent from Walter Devereux 1st Earl of Essex & Lettice Knollys, as their royal lines are already well-known and documented. Lines 1-6 are taken from Ruvigny's The Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal, Isabel of Essex Volume, pp. 9 (Table VIII), 10 (Table IX), 104, and finally 105 (for Lucy Edwardes and her marriage to Essex Meyrick).

1) Walter Devereux 1st Earl of Essex K.G. (1541-1576) m. Lettice Knollys
2) Lady Penelope Devereux (d. 1607) m. (1) Robert Rich 1st Earl of Warwick
3) Henry Rich 1st Earl of Holland K. B. (1590-1649) m. Isabel Cope
4) Robert Rich 5th Earl of Warwick & 2nd Earl of Holland (c1620-1675) m. (2) Lady Anne Montague (#5 below)
5) Lady Elizabeth Rich (d. 1725) m. Francis Edwardes of Haverfordwest, M. P.
6) Lucy Edwardes (d. 1760) m. Essex Meyrick, of Bush, Pembrokeshire (continued below)

````
2) Lady Penelope Devereux (d. 1607) m. (1) Robert Rich 1st Earl of Warwick
3) Robert Rich 2nd Earl of Warwick K. B. (1587-1658) m. 1605 Frances Hatton
4) Lady Anne Rich (d. 1641) m. Edward Montague 2nd Earl of Manchester
5) Lady Anne Montague (d. 1689) m. Robert Rich 5th Earl of Warwick (#4 above)

````
6) Lucy Edwardes (d. 1760) m. 1732 Essex Marychurch Meyrick, of Bush, Pembrokeshire

As Matthew Connolly noted in an earlier post, Mary Emma Baker Cresswell, wife of the 2nd Meyrick Baronet, had several royal lines. So did Mary Rhoda Hill, wife of the 1st Baronet, St. John Chiverton Charlton (husband of Jane Sophia Meyrick), and Jack Brooksbank's great-grandfather Giles Newton, husband of Mary Cicely Meyrick. I'll try to post the Newton lines next week.

Take care!

Gawin, thanks for this very useful information on the Meyrick family. I had seen a mention of a marriage between Lucy Edwardes and Essex Meyrick, but I hadn't been able to connect him to the earlier Meyricks. I assume that Essex Marychurch Meyrick (d. 1762) was the man of the same name who was sheriff of Pembrokeshire in 1754. And I'm also assuming, but haven't yet firmly established, that Essex was the son of the John Meyrick who was MP for Pembrokeshire and later Cardiganshire. Among other evidence, the middle name Marychurch seems to indicate this because the wife of the MP John Meyrick was the daughter of a woman whose surname was St. Marychurch.
https://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1690-1715/member/meyrick-john-1673-1735

If this parentage for Essex Marychurch Meyrick is correct, there are almost certainly royal lines behind him. I believe I've found a line to King John via his [proposed] mother, and I suspect there are other lines as well. I'm still digging...

Thanks also for the information on Michael McGarvie's book on the Meyricks of Bush. It's a hard book to find - only one US library has a copy, and only a handful in the UK. But I may be able to get a copy via inter-library loan.

I'll be looking forward to your subsequent posts. I was aware of the royal descents behind Mary Rhoda Hill and Giles Newton, but I haven't had a chance yet to look into the Baker-Cresswell ancestry.

Hi Brad,
I'm passing along some of the sources I used when researching Jack's descent from Charles II via the Meyrick-Willis-Calvert families.
1) Charles II & Barbara Villiers
2) Lady Charlotte Fitzroy (1664-1718) m. Sir Edward Lee, 1st Earl of Lichfield
3) Lady Charlotte Lee (1678-1723) m. (1) Benedict Leonard Calvert, 4th Baron Baltimore
4) Jane Calvert (1702-1778) m. 1720 Col. John Hyde
5) Catherine Hyde (1745-1823) m. 1774 Rev. Thomas Willis
6) Jane Caroline Willis (1777-1802) m. 1796 Thomas Meyrick
7) Jane Sophia Meyrick (1801-1837) m. 1820 St. John Chiverton Charlton
8) Sir Thomas Charlton Meyrick (born Charlton) (1837-1921), 1st Baronet K.C.B., m. 1860 Mary Rhoda Hill
9) Brig. Gen. Sir Frederick Charlton Meyrick (1862-1932), 2nd Baronet C.B., m. 1897 Mary Emma Baker Cresswell O.B.E
10) Mary Cicely Meyrick (1899-1972) m. 1921 Giles Fendall Newton
11) Capt. Michael Anthony Fendall Newton (1923-2006) m. 1949 Joanna Katherine Holland
12) Nicola Joanna Newton (b. 1953) m. 1985 George Edward Hugh Brooksbank
13) Jack Christopher Stamp Brooksbank (b. 1986)
Thomas Meyrick also had a royal descent. I'll try to post it tomorrow.
Dear Gawin,
Your detailed sources on Generations 4 to 7 above are much appreciated. What a wonderful line to have worked out. The 'Calvert-Baron Baltimore' article in 'Burke's Dormant & Extinct Peerages' states only that the 4th Lord Baltimore's younger daughter was "Jane, m. -- Hyde, of Bucks, and d. July, 1778." The Meyrick article in the most recent 'Burke's Peerage' (2003) states only that, "THOMAS MEYRICK, of Bush, had an only dau: JANE SOPHIA Meyrick; m 7 Sept 1820 St John Chiverton CHARLTON, of Apley Castle."
That you were able to fill in the details and compile the information on the intervening generations, using primary sources and without an already existing pedigree - I'm impressed with your research!
I'll second John Higgins's comment - I'm looking forward to your post on the ancestry for Thomas Meyrick of Bush Hall. As you are no doubt already aware, the 'Burke's Peerage' Meyrick article is of no real use on this line.
Thanks again for sharing your research.
Cheers, ----Brad
Brad,
Thank you for your kind words. I would like to take credit for discovering this line but I can't. The Wikipedia entry for Jane Caroline (Willis) Meyrick's brother John Willis Fleming states he was a great-grandson of Benedict Calvert 4th Baron Baltimore and Charlotte Lee. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Willis_Fleming
So all I had to do was find primary sources proving the relationship.
Now for Thomas Meyrick's royal descent from Edward III. Rather than post the many different lines, I'm only posting his descent from Walter Devereux 1st Earl of Essex & Lettice Knollys, as their royal lines are already well-known and documented. Lines 1-6 are taken from Ruvigny's The Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal, Isabel of Essex Volume, pp. 9 (Table VIII), 10 (Table IX), 104, and finally 105 (for Lucy Edwardes and her marriage to Essex Meyrick).
1) Walter Devereux 1st Earl of Essex K.G. (1541-1576) m. Lettice Knollys
2) Lady Penelope Devereux (d. 1607) m. (1) Robert Rich 1st Earl of Warwick
3) Henry Rich 1st Earl of Holland K. B. (1590-1649) m. Isabel Cope
4) Robert Rich 5th Earl of Warwick & 2nd Earl of Holland (c1620-1675) m. (2) Lady Anne Montague (#5 below)
5) Lady Elizabeth Rich (d. 1725) m. Francis Edwardes of Haverfordwest, M. P.
6) Lucy Edwardes (d. 1760) m. Essex Meyrick, of Bush, Pembrokeshire (continued below)
````
2) Lady Penelope Devereux (d. 1607) m. (1) Robert Rich 1st Earl of Warwick
3) Robert Rich 2nd Earl of Warwick K. B. (1587-1658) m. 1605 Frances Hatton
4) Lady Anne Rich (d. 1641) m. Edward Montague 2nd Earl of Manchester
5) Lady Anne Montague (d. 1689) m. Robert Rich 5th Earl of Warwick (#4 above)

For a complete account of the Meyricks see Michael McGarvie's 132-page book, The Meyricks of Bush: The Story of a Pembrokeshire Family (1988), written with the cooperation of the Meyrick family who placed their family papers at Mr. McGarvie's disposal.
As Matthew Connolly noted in an earlier post, Mary Emma Baker Cresswell, wife of the 2nd Meyrick Baronet, had several royal lines. So did Mary Rhoda Hill, wife of the 1st Baronet, St. John Chiverton Charlton (husband of Jane Sophia Meyrick), and Jack Brooksbank's great-grandfather Giles Newton, husband of Mary Cicely Meyrick. I'll try to post the Newton lines next week.
Take care!
Gawin
Gawin, thanks for this very useful information on the Meyrick family. I had seen a mention of a marriage between Lucy Edwardes and Essex Meyrick, but I hadn't been able to connect him to the earlier Meyricks. I assume that Essex Marychurch Meyrick (d. 1762) was the man of the same name who was sheriff of Pembrokeshire in 1754. And I'm also assuming, but haven't yet firmly established, that Essex was the son of the John Meyrick who was MP for Pembrokeshire and later Cardiganshire. Among other evidence, the middle name Marychurch seems to indicate this because the wife of the MP John Meyrick was the daughter of a woman whose surname was St. Marychurch.
https://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1690-1715/member/meyrick-john-1673-1735
If this parentage for Essex Marychurch Meyrick is correct, there are almost certainly royal lines behind him. I believe I've found a line to King John via his [proposed] mother, and I suspect there are other lines as well. I'm still digging...
Thanks also for the information on Michael McGarvie's book on the Meyricks of Bush. It's a hard book to find - only one US library has a copy, and only a handful in the UK. But I may be able to get a copy via inter-library loan.
I'll be looking forward to your subsequent posts. I was aware of the royal descents behind Mary Rhoda Hill and Giles Newton, but I haven't had a chance yet to look into the Baker-Cresswell ancestry.
Yes, you are correct. Essex Meyrick was sheriff of Pembrokeshire in 1754. His son John Francis was sheriff in 1765. And you are also correct in assuming that Essex was the son of John Meyrick M.P and his wife Mary the daughter and coheir of John Williams of Norchard by his first wife Mary Marychurch. McGarvie calls her “the heir of the Marychurchs of Norchard in the parish of Manobier, an ancient family which had been connected with Tenby and Scotsborough since the 15th century (pp. 36-37).

Here is the complete Meyrick line down to Essex Marychurch Meyrick, as provided by McGarvie:

1) Einion Sais, sixth in descent from Cadafael Ynfyd, Lord of Cydewain, Montgomeryshire (now in Powys) in the 13th century. Einion m. Eva , dau. & heir of Meredydd ap Cadwgna, lord of Bodorgan.

2) Heylin ap Einion Sais (alive 1465), m. Angharad, dau. of William ap Evan (per pedigree chart between pp. 84-85) or Gwilynn ap Grufydd ap Daffyd, descendent of Owen Gwynedd, Prince of North Wales (p. 9).

3) Meruig ap Llewellyn, Yeoman of the Guard (d. c1537), m. Margaret, dau. of Rowland ap Howell of Carreg Ceiliog, Rector of Aberffraw.

4) Rowland Meyrick, Bishop of Bangor (c1505-1566), m. 1554 Katherine Barret (d. 1598), daughter of Owen Barret of Gelliswick & Hasguard, Pembrokeshire.

5) Sir Francis Meyrick, of Fleet (d. 1603), m. Anne Laugharne (living 1625), daughter of Francis Laugharne of St. Brides, Esquire, and Ienett Phillips, his wife.

6) Sir John Meyrick, of Monkton (d. 1655), m. (1) Alice Fitton, daughter of Sir Edward Fitton of Gawsworth, Cheshire; m. (2) Jane Meredith (d. 1660), widow of Sir Peter Wyche Ambassador to the Sultan of Turkey, daughter of William Meredith of Wrexham, Denbighshire.

7) [by Alice Fitton] Essex Meyrick, established the Meyrick family at Bush (d. 1712), m. before 1670/1 Jane (or Elizabeth) Corbet, daughter of Robert Corbet of Ynesymaengwyn, Merionethsire.

8) John Meyrick, M. P. (c1674-1733), m. Mary Williams,daughter and coheir of John Williams of Norchard by his first wife Mary Marychurch.

9) Essex Marychurch Meyrick (c1705-1762), m. 1732 Lucy Edwardes (d. 1760)

As Matthew Connolly noted in an earlier post, Mary Emma Baker Cresswell, wife of the 2nd Meyrick Baronet, had several royal lines. So did Mary Rhoda Hill, wife of the 1st Baronet, St. John Chiverton Charlton (husband of Jane Sophia Meyrick), and Jack Brooksbank's great-grandfather Giles Newton, husband of Mary Cicely Meyrick. I'll try to post the Newton lines next week.
Take care!
Gawin
Gawin, thanks for this very useful information on the Meyrick family. I had seen a mention of a marriage between Lucy Edwardes and Essex Meyrick, but I hadn't been able to connect him to the earlier Meyricks. I assume that Essex Marychurch Meyrick (d. 1762) was the man of the same name who was sheriff of Pembrokeshire in 1754. And I'm also assuming, but haven't yet firmly established, that Essex was the son of the John Meyrick who was MP for Pembrokeshire and later Cardiganshire. Among other evidence, the middle name Marychurch seems to indicate this because the wife of the MP John Meyrick was the daughter of a woman whose surname was St. Marychurch.
https://www.historyofparliamentonline.org/volume/1690-1715/member/meyrick-john-1673-1735
If this parentage for Essex Marychurch Meyrick is correct, there are almost certainly royal lines behind him. I believe I've found a line to King John via his [proposed] mother, and I suspect there are other lines as well. I'm still digging...
Thanks also for the information on Michael McGarvie's book on the Meyricks of Bush. It's a hard book to find - only one US library has a copy, and only a handful in the UK. But I may be able to get a copy via inter-library loan.
I'll be looking forward to your subsequent posts. I was aware of the royal descents behind Mary Rhoda Hill and Giles Newton, but I haven't had a chance yet to look into the Baker-Cresswell ancestry.
Yes, you are correct. Essex Meyrick was sheriff of Pembrokeshire in 1754. His son John Francis was sheriff in 1765. And you are also correct in assuming that Essex was the son of John Meyrick M.P and his wife Mary the daughter and coheir of John Williams of Norchard by his first wife Mary Marychurch. McGarvie calls her “the heir of the Marychurchs of Norchard in the parish of Manobier, an ancient family which had been connected with Tenby and Scotsborough since the 15th century (pp. 36-37).
1) Einion Sais, sixth in descent from Cadafael Ynfyd, Lord of Cydewain, Montgomeryshire (now in Powys) in the 13th century. Einion m. Eva , dau. & heir of Meredydd ap Cadwgna, lord of Bodorgan.
2) Heylin ap Einion Sais (alive 1465), m. Angharad, dau. of William ap Evan (per pedigree chart between pp. 84-85) or Gwilynn ap Grufydd ap Daffyd, descendent of Owen Gwynedd, Prince of North Wales (p. 9).
3) Meruig ap Llewellyn, Yeoman of the Guard (d. c1537), m. Margaret, dau. of Rowland ap Howell of Carreg Ceiliog, Rector of Aberffraw.
4) Rowland Meyrick, Bishop of Bangor (c1505-1566), m. 1554 Katherine Barret (d. 1598), daughter of Owen Barret of Gelliswick & Hasguard, Pembrokeshire.
5) Sir Francis Meyrick, of Fleet (d. 1603), m. Anne Laugharne (living 1625), daughter of Francis Laugharne of St. Brides, Esquire, and Ienett Phillips, his wife.
6) Sir John Meyrick, of Monkton (d. 1655), m. (1) Alice Fitton, daughter of Sir Edward Fitton of Gawsworth, Cheshire; m. (2) Jane Meredith (d. 1660), widow of Sir Peter Wyche Ambassador to the Sultan of Turkey, daughter of William Meredith of Wrexham, Denbighshire.
7) [by Alice Fitton] Essex Meyrick, established the Meyrick family at Bush (d. 1712), m. before 1670/1 Jane (or Elizabeth) Corbet, daughter of Robert Corbet of Ynesymaengwyn, Merionethsire.
8) John Meyrick, M. P. (c1674-1733), m. Mary Williams,daughter and coheir of John Williams of Norchard by his first wife Mary Marychurch.
9) Essex Marychurch Meyrick (c1705-1762), m. 1732 Lucy Edwardes (d. 1760)
Yes, this agrees entirely with what I have as the Meyrick line of descent. Thank you!

Hi Brad,
I'm passing along some of the sources I used when researching Jack's descent from Charles II via the Meyrick-Willis-Calvert families.
1) Charles II & Barbara Villiers
2) Lady Charlotte Fitzroy (1664-1718) m. Sir Edward Lee, 1st Earl of Lichfield
3) Lady Charlotte Lee (1678-1723) m. (1) Benedict Leonard Calvert, 4th Baron Baltimore
4) Jane Calvert (1702-1778) m. 1720 Col. John Hyde
5) Catherine Hyde (1745-1823) m. 1774 Rev. Thomas Willis
6) Jane Caroline Willis (1777-1802) m. 1796 Thomas Meyrick
7) Jane Sophia Meyrick (1801-1837) m. 1820 St. John Chiverton Charlton
8) Sir Thomas Charlton Meyrick (born Charlton) (1837-1921), 1st Baronet K.C.B., m. 1860 Mary Rhoda Hill
9) Brig. Gen. Sir Frederick Charlton Meyrick (1862-1932), 2nd Baronet C.B., m. 1897 Mary Emma Baker Cresswell O.B.E
10) Mary Cicely Meyrick (1899-1972) m. 1921 Giles Fendall Newton
11) Capt. Michael Anthony Fendall Newton (1923-2006) m. 1949 Joanna Katherine Holland
12) Nicola Joanna Newton (b. 1953) m. 1985 George Edward Hugh Brooksbank
13) Jack Christopher Stamp Brooksbank (b. 1986)
Thomas Meyrick also had a royal descent. I'll try to post it tomorrow.
Dear Gawin,
Your detailed sources on Generations 4 to 7 above are much appreciated. What a wonderful line to have worked out. The 'Calvert-Baron Baltimore' article in 'Burke's Dormant & Extinct Peerages' states only that the 4th Lord Baltimore's younger daughter was "Jane, m. -- Hyde, of Bucks, and d. July, 1778." The Meyrick article in the most recent 'Burke's Peerage' (2003) states only that, "THOMAS MEYRICK, of Bush, had an only dau: JANE SOPHIA Meyrick; m 7 Sept 1820 St John Chiverton CHARLTON, of Apley Castle."
That you were able to fill in the details and compile the information on the intervening generations, using primary sources and without an already existing pedigree - I'm impressed with your research!
I'll second John Higgins's comment - I'm looking forward to your post on the ancestry for Thomas Meyrick of Bush Hall. As you are no doubt already aware, the 'Burke's Peerage' Meyrick article is of no real use on this line.
Thanks again for sharing your research.
Cheers, ----Brad
Brad,
Thank you for your kind words. I would like to take credit for discovering this line but I can't. The Wikipedia entry for Jane Caroline (Willis) Meyrick's brother John Willis Fleming states he was a great-grandson of Benedict Calvert 4th Baron Baltimore and Charlotte Lee. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Willis_Fleming
So all I had to do was find primary sources proving the relationship.
Now for Thomas Meyrick's royal descent from Edward III. Rather than post the many different lines, I'm only posting his descent from Walter Devereux 1st Earl of Essex & Lettice Knollys, as their royal lines are already well-known and documented. Lines 1-6 are taken from Ruvigny's The Plantagenet Roll of the Blood Royal, Isabel of Essex Volume, pp. 9 (Table VIII), 10 (Table IX), 104, and finally 105 (for Lucy Edwardes and her marriage to Essex Meyrick).
1) Walter Devereux 1st Earl of Essex K.G. (1541-1576) m. Lettice Knollys
2) Lady Penelope Devereux (d. 1607) m. (1) Robert Rich 1st Earl of Warwick
3) Henry Rich 1st Earl of Holland K. B. (1590-1649) m. Isabel Cope
4) Robert Rich 5th Earl of Warwick & 2nd Earl of Holland (c1620-1675) m. (2) Lady Anne Montague (#5 below)
5) Lady Elizabeth Rich (d. 1725) m. Francis Edwardes of Haverfordwest, M. P.
6) Lucy Edwardes (d. 1760) m. Essex Meyrick, of Bush, Pembrokeshire (continued below)
````
2) Lady Penelope Devereux (d. 1607) m. (1) Robert Rich 1st Earl of Warwick
3) Robert Rich 2nd Earl of Warwick K. B. (1587-1658) m. 1605 Frances Hatton
4) Lady Anne Rich (d. 1641) m. Edward Montague 2nd Earl of Manchester
5) Lady Anne Montague (d. 1689) m. Robert Rich 5th Earl of Warwick (#4 above)

Yes, this agrees entirely with what I have as the Meyrick line of descent. Thank you!
FYI - I took a closer look at my copy of Michael McGarvie's book. Not only did he have the family's cooperation, he's also a member of the family as his wife Penelope is the daughter of Sir Thomas Frederick Meyrick 3rd Baronet.

Here’s an Edward III line for Jack Brooksbank’s maternal grandmother Joanna (Holland) Newton. Pulling it all together was a lot easier once I discovered Brad Verity had already posted the early generations on 5/25/07. Brad’s post covered the royal ancestry of Thomas Adams (1655-1722), Recorder of York, who just happened to be the brother of Mrs. Newton’s ancestor Elizabeth Adams, wife of Thomas Dawnay.

Rather than repeat Brad’s post, I’ll begin with Thomas Dawnay who was his wife’s 2nd cousin once removed and shared some of her royal lines. Most of my sources are secondary but I kept to the reliable ones.

Here’s an Edward III line for Jack Brooksbank’s maternal grandmother Joanna (Holland) Newton. Pulling it all together was a lot easier once I discovered Brad Verity had already posted the early generations on 5/25/07. Brad’s post covered the royal ancestry of Thomas Adams (1655-1722), Recorder of York, who just happened to be the brother of Mrs. Newton’s ancestor Elizabeth Adams, wife of Thomas Dawnay.
[snip]

Gavin, this is great - thank you very much for sharing this line. I'm glad that my post helped you with it. So now, all four of Jack Brooksbank's grandparents have lines of descent from Edward III. I'm going to be very busy over the next week or so, entering into my database all of these lines of descent that you've shared!

If you still have time to post the paternal & maternal (Harrison) lines of descent for Giles Newton that you've worked out, I would appreciate seeing them.

Thanks again, and Cheers, ----Brad

Thank you, Gawin, for sharing all of the research you've done on the Meyrick of Bush Hall line - it's of great use.

It confirms that both of Jack Brooksbank's parents descends from Charles II. And thus three of his grandparents descend from Henry VII - rather interesting considering that only one of Jack's great-grandparents was titled. The fourth grandparent - his maternal grandmother Johanna (nee Holland) Newton - the one who has lived to see him marry a princess - have you researched her ancestry at all? The Genealogics database has her four grandparents, plus the parentage of three of them, but hasn't traced her ancestry back any further.

Thanks again, and Cheers, -----Brad

According to a secondary source Joanna (Holland) Newton descends from Edward III but I've not sat down to confirm it.

Her father-in-law Giles Newton (Jack's great-grandfather) also descended from Edward III, through both parents (William Newton & Violet Harrison). His father's line was published in The Plantagenent Roll but I worked out his mother's line on my own.

I'll try to post these additional lines next week.

Here’s an Edward III line for Jack Brooksbank’s maternal grandmother Joanna (Holland) Newton. Pulling it all together was a lot easier once I discovered Brad Verity had already posted the early generations on 5/25/07. Brad’s post covered the royal ancestry of Thomas Adams (1655-1722), Recorder of York, who just happens to be the brother of Mrs. Newton’s ancestor Elizabeth Adams, who married Thomas Dawnay.

https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/soc.genealogy.medieval/%22thomas$20adams%22%7Csort:date/soc.genealogy.medieval/O01OKL2HmcI/5rP8feQli2EJ

Rather than repeat Brad’s post, I’ll begin with Thomas Dawnay who was his wife’s 2nd cousin once removed and shared some of her royal lines.
Most of my sources are secondary but I kept to the reliable ones.

1) Sir John Dawnay of Sessay, co. York, m. Elizabeth Tunstall (A8 in Brad Verity’s post).
2) Marmaduke Dawnay of Sutton Coldfield, co. Warwickshire (d. 1629), m. Anne, widow of Simon Perrot of Sutton Coldfield & dau of William Gardner of Bermondsey (d. 1639)

I guess there could be another royal descent through Jacks's great-great-grandfather Henry Brockholes Thomas (1842-1901).

I wonder whether he was related to the Brockholes family, of Claughton.

Henry Brockholes Thomas was baptised on 19 August 1842, as son of Griffith Thomas and Martha.

I could find a marriage between Griffith Thomas and Martha Woolley, on 11 Jan. 1840, at Brighton, Sussex, but I am not sure if they were his parents.

On Esoteric Curiosa, his parents are listed as Griffith Thomas and Martha Brockholes.

http://theesotericcuriosa.blogspot.com/2018/01/family-affair-shaking-family-tree-of_84.html

I have also found a Griffth Thomas, born on 24 April 1808, and baptised on 18 May 1808, in London, as son of Griffith Thomas and Sarah.

As far as I could find, Griffith Thomas and Sarah had 9 children, who were baptised in St. Botolph Aldgate, London (they could be Griffith Thomas and Sarah Jones, who married on 14 April 1799, in Shoreditch):

- Griffith Thomas (1808-bef 1891), who was probably father of Henry Brockholes Thomas (1842-1901)
- Ann Thomas (1809-?)
- Sarah Thomas (1811-?)
- Robert Brockholes Thomas (1813-1814)
- Henry Brockholes Thomas (1814-?)
- Robert Brockholes Thomas (1816-1817)
- William Lynall Thomas (1818-)
- Robert Brockholes Thomas (1823-?)
- Catherine Elizabeth Thomas (1825-?)

This could be the right family, taking into account that Henry Brockholes Thomas had a daughter named Hazel Lynall Thomas (1883-1968).

You have the right family. Henry Brockholes Thomas was the son of Griffith Thomas (1808-1888) and Martha Woolley (1809-1891) and the grandson of Griffith Thomas (1777-1844) and Sarah Brockholes (1779-after 1851).

Sarah Brockholes was the daughter of Robert Brockholes (1748-1823) and Sarah Lynall who lived in the Minories, London & Chigwell, Essex. Robert was the son of another Robert Brockholes of the Parish of Aldgate, co. Middlesex (1715-1789). Based on FamilySearch baptismal entries it appears this Robert was the son of Henry Brockholes.

Certainly the right family (but I don't think the right Griffith/Sarah marriage). In 1861 at Kensington, Thomas Griffith (sic), solicitor, father of Henry, gives his birthplace as Aldgate, City of London, and his age puts the birth in 1808/9. 1871 (Kensington) Griffith Thomas, solicitor, simply is given as b. London (same age). In 1881 at Egham, Surrey, Grifith Thomas, solicitor, says St Botolph, Aldgate, and again a birth 1808/9.

The correct marriage is certainly 22 Sep. 1804, St. Dunstan, Stepney, of Griffith Thomas of St. Botolph, bachelor, to Sarah Brockhols of St. Dunstan, witnessed by Robert and Ann Brockhols. There was a Sarah Brockhole bap 22 February 1778, St. Botolph Aldgate, daughter of Jacob and Jane, but I would like more than just the coincidence of name before drawing the connection.

The father seems likely the Griffith, son of Griffith and Eleanor (sic), b. 1808 in The Minories, granted liberty of the city by patrimony in the Company of Glovers in 1833, his father having been admitted as Freeman in 1801. (It may seem odd for a solicitor to be a member of the Glover's Company, but membership in the livery companies had become an important social distinction, divorced of actual occupation, and indeed the elder Griffith was a woollendraper living at 11 The Minories in directories from the mid-1800s to at least 1830.) In turn, he is certainly the Griffith, son of Griffith late of The Minories who for 1p apprenticed himself to William Griffith, Citizen and Glover (who was a woollendraper) , in 1792 (his brother William Griffith was apprenticed 1791 to John Young, Citizen & Carpenter). If you ballpark this apprentice's age at about 14, that makes him the Griffith Thomas bap 3 Aug 1777, St. Botolph, son of Griffith & Catherine. They would be the Griffith Thomas ae 21+, surgeon of Trinity Minories, London, and Catherine Coleman, age 21+, who received licence from the Diocese of London to marry at Trinity 12 Nov 1771. "Griffith Thomas, A Man" was bur. St. Botolph Aldgate 23 Jan 1780, inwhose PCC will dated 21 December 1771 and probated in February 1780, he is surgeon of the Osterley, an EIC ship, and names wife Catherine, living with her father David Coleman in the Minories, and names his brother William Thomas, woollendraper, and wife's brother David Coleman as executors.

The marriage of Griffith Thomas, son of Griffith to Martha Woolley, daughter of John at St. Nicholas, Brighton, 11 Jan 1840, is certainly the correct one. They had 4 children bapt at St. George, Camberwell. Martha's birthplace is reported as Walworth, Surrey (1861 & 1871 - none given in 1881) in or about 1818/9.

Enough for now.

This Griffith Thomas sailed repeatedly with EIC ships, and may have been friend of (eventually Captain) John Coxon, with whom he appears repeatedly:

Pacific, 499 tons, 1st voyage, to 'Coast and Bay'
sailed Portsmouth 14 April 1765
arrived Downs 17 December 1766
Captain Charles Barklay
Surgeon Griffith Thomas
Purser John Coxon

Pacific, 499 tons, 2nd voyage, to 'Coast and China'
sailed Downs 2 January 1768
arrived Downs 16 June 1769
Captain Charles Barklay
Surgeon Griffith Thomas

Bridgewater, 499 tons, 1st voyage, to 'Coast and China'
sailed Portsmouth 11 January 1770
arrived Downs 20 August 1771
Captain Nicholas Skottowe
Surgeon Griffith Thomas

Osterley, 499 tons, 1st voyage, to 'Bencoolen and China'
sailed Downs 29 December 1771
arrived Downs 26 May 1773
Captain Francis Fortescue
Surgeon Griffith Thomas

Grosvenor, 729 tons, 2nd voyage, to 'Coast and China'
sailed Downs 18 January 1775
arrived Downs 18 August 1776
Captain David Saunders
1st Mate John Coxen
Surgeon Griffith Thomas

Grosvenor, 729 tons, 3rd voyage, to 'Coast and Bay'
sailed Plymouth 9 February 1778
arrived Downs 16 November 1779
Captain John Coxen
Surgeon Griffith Thomas

Note that in 1771, he arrived back in August, married in November, wrote his will in December, and then was off again days later.

Children of Griffith and Catherine (Coleman) Thomas bap. at St. Botolph without Aldgate:
William, bap. 8 May 1774 (of 'Minories')
Catherine, bap. 9 April 1775 (of 'Minories')
Griffith, bap. 3 August 1777 (of 'Minories')
*Elizabeth b. 24 March 1780, bap. 16 April 1780 (of 'Minories')

Note on the last: Griffith must have had a bit of a surprise when he returned in November 1779 from a 21 month voyage to find his wife 5-months pregnant. He died 2 months later, perhaps of mortification.

Catherine is probably the "Catherine Thomas a Wom^n" of Minories bur. 7 August 1785.

Had Griffith lived beyond January 1780, it might not have been for long. On its next voyage under John Coxon, leaving in June 1780, the Grosvenor ran head-long into the African coast, broke up and sank. 2/3 of the crew and almost all the passengers made it ashore, only to have all but 18 crew die (1/8 of the original complement, with none of the passengers surviving) during a 400-mile trek from the wreck site to the Dutch settlements at the Cape.

Sarah (Brockholes) Thomas was not the daughter of Jacob and Jane. She was the daughter of Robert Brockholes who left a legacy to his daughter "Sarah Thomas wife of Griffith Thomas" in his will (Robert Brockholes of Chigwell Row, Chigwell, Essex, PROB 11/1678/277, dated 7 April 1819, codicils 20 November 1822 and 13 October 1823, proved 24 December 1823).

The death of Robert Brockholes of Chigwell on 3 December 1823 in the Minories was announced in The Gentleman's Magazine < https://books.google.com/books?id=HaVJAAAAYAAJ&pg=PA645 >.

Robert Brockholes of the Minories, age 75, was buried 13 December 1823 at St Botolph Without Aldgate.

Robert Brockholes also mentioned a son Robert in his will. In his own will Robert Jr. names his sister "Sarah Thomas wife of Griffith Thomas" (PCC 11/1738, proved 29 April 1828). Robert Jr. was also buried at St. Botolph, on 9 April 1828, age 47.

Both wills also mention Ann, wife of John Bullin, daughter of Robert Sr. and sister of Robert Jr.

St. Botolph parish records record the baptisms of Sarah (December 1779) and Robert (March 1781), and Ann (October 1783) to Robert & Sarah Brockholes.

Robert and Sarah Brockholes, parents of Sarah (Brockholes) Thomas, were probably the Robert Brockholes and Sarah Lynall who were married 3 December 1778 at St. Botolph Aldgate.

The will of Thomas Lynall of Mile End Road,parish of Saint Dunstan Stepney, co. Middlesex, Gentleman (late of Rosemary Lane, co. Middlesex, Salesman), mentions his wife Sarah (appointed executor), niece & nephews Mary, Thomas, George, Benjamin, and Joseph Jolland and [no relationship stated] "Sarah the wife of Griffith Thomas of the Minories London woolen draper late Sarah Brockholes Spinster," Robert Brockholes the younger, and Mary Brockholes, all "children of Robert Brockholes the Elder of Chigwell Row in the County of Sussex Gentleman." (PROB 11/1565, 11 Feb 1814 proved 14 Feb 1815).

The will of Sarah Lynall of Assembly Row Mile and Road, parish of Saint Dunstan Stepney, co. Middlesex, widow, mentions (a) her late husband Thomas (b) nephew Robert Brockholes the younger of Chigwell Row, co. Essex [appointed a co-executor] (c) Robert Brockholes the elder of Chigwell [co-executor] (d) Griffith Thomas of the Minories, London, Woollen Draper [co-executor] (e) niece Sarah "wife of the said Griffith Thomas" (f) niece Ann the wife of John Bullin late of Bishopsgate Street London silversmith. After the deaths of the two Robert Brockholes she appointed three new executors including "Griffith Thomas the younger son of Griffith Thomas." (PROB 11/1750, 24 March 1823, codicils 6 October 1823, 23 June 1825, 9 December 1825, 21 April 1828, 19 August 1828, and 14 December 1828, proved 12 January 1829.

She also asked to be buried with her husband Thomas in the parish church of Little Ilford, co. Essex. Thomas Lynall was buried there 6 February 1815, age 70, and Sarah Lynall 2 January 1828, age 78.

This places Thomas's birth around 1745. He *may* have been the Thomas Lynall bap. 1 September 1745 at St. Botolph, son of Thomas and Alice.

Thomas and Alice Lynall had other children bap. at St. Botolph including Sarah, 30 November 1742, who *may* have been Sarah (Lynall) Brockholes, although she would have been 36 years at her marriage in 1778, somewhat old.

They had 4 children bapt at St. George, Camberwell. Martha's birthplace is reported as Walworth, Surrey (1861 & 1871 - none given in 1881) in or about 1818/9.
Enough for now.
taf
According to her 1891 death announcement Martha (Woolley) Thomas died age at the age of 83, placing her birth in 1808 not 1818. See The Daily News [London] October 15, 1891, p. 1, col. 1, digital image in Findmypast. “10th Oct., at Park House, Englefield-green, Surrey, Martha, the widow of Griffith Thomas, Esq., aged 83.” According to the National Probate Calendar (available in Ancestry) administration of her estate was granted to Henry Brockholes Thomas on 17 November 1891.

This matches census records. In 1841 she was 30, born Surrey; 1851 she was 42, born Surrey; 1861 age 52 born Walworth, Surrey; 1881 age 72 no birthplace stated; and in 1891 age 83, born Walworth, Middlesex. The 1871 census incorrectly states she was age 52 but agrees with Walworth, Surrey as her birthplace.

It is known she was the daughter of John and Grace (Maude) Woolley of Beckenham Lodge, Kent (see her marriage record and John Woolley's will).

Putting all this together, she was likely the Martha, daughter of John & Grace Woolley, who was born 28 May 1808 and bap 19 July at St. Mary, Newington, Southwark, Surrey.

No need to use Ancestry for this, now that the probate details are available online on a government site:

The father seems likely the Griffith, son of Griffith and Eleanor (sic), b. 1808 in The Minories, granted liberty of the city by patrimony in the Company of Glovers in 1833, his father having been admitted as Freeman in 1801. (It may seem odd for a solicitor to be a member of the Glover's Company, but membership in the livery companies had become an important social distinction, divorced of actual occupation, and indeed the elder Griffith was a woollendraper living at 11 The Minories in directories from the mid-1800s to at least 1830.) In turn, he is certainly the Griffith, son of Griffith late of The Minories who for 1p apprenticed himself to William Griffith, Citizen and Glover (who was a woollendraper) , in 1792 (his brother William Griffith was apprenticed 1791 to John Young, Citizen & Carpenter). If you ballpark this apprentice's age at about 14, that makes him the Griffith Thomas bap 3 Aug 1777, St. Botolph, son of Griffith & Catherine. They would be the Griffith Thomas ae 21+, surgeon of Trinity Minories, London, and Catherine Coleman, age 21+, who received licence from the Diocese of London to marry at Trinity 12 Nov 1771. "Griffith Thomas, A Man" was bur. St. Botolph Aldgate 23 Jan 1780, inwhose PCC will dated 21 December 1771 and probated in February 1780, he is surgeon of the Osterley, an EIC ship, and names wife Catherine, living with her father David Coleman in the Minories, and names his brother William Thomas, woollendraper, and wife's brother David Coleman as executors.
I can go back another generation.

William Griffith, woollendraper, of the Minories, died testate in 1799. His will names: nephew, William Parry of Taymaisar (?), near Llangwillog (Llangwyllog), Anglesey; nieces and nephew, Catherine Thomas, Elizabeth Thomas, and William Thomas, who were living with him; and nephew Griffith Thomas, who was living with Mr.s Coleman and Weldon in Watling St. He names George Coleman of Watling St., warehouseman, executor and it was witnessed by Mary Coleman and Thomas Coleman.

The Anglesey connection is useful because there were two different Williams who became freemen from the Drapers company.

*William Thomas, son of William late of Wapping, victualler, 1760
*William Thomas, son of William of Monachdu in Anglesey, North Wales, 1766

The Anglesey connection in the will favors the latter. Monachdu is Mynachdy farm, Llanfair-yng-Nghornwy. FamilySearch has 'Llanfairynghornwy' records, but they are copied over from findmypast, hiding the father's name. There is what seems to be a single Thomas family during this period, with sons including Griffith (bap. 1737) and William (bap. 1739).


Catherine Coleman is likely the daughter of David and Elizabeth b. 8 Oct., bap. 2 Nov. 1747, St. Leonard Shoreditch.

The father's name was William (see digital images of the parish records in Findmypast).

Catherine Coleman is likely the daughter of David and Elizabeth b. 8 Oct., bap. 2 Nov. 1747, St. Leonard Shoreditch.
If the Old Bailey records are any indication, her father David Coleman of The Minories might politely be called a 'trader in second hand goods', or less charitably, a fence. The parents of the 1747 Catherine (perhaps the same as Griffith's wife), may be the David Coleman and Elizabeth Blaydon (of St. James, Westminster) married 9 Mar 1745 Saint George's chapel, Mayfair, but it is on the other side of the city.

Over the weekend I checked out the Peerage News newsgroup to find out what, if anything, was posted on his topic there.

The first page in this link takes you here:

I wonder if Olivier posted this?

A link below #31 leads to the next two generations further back.

Post by Royal Ancestry
- Griffith Thomas (1808-?), who was probably father of Henry Brockholes Thomas (1842-1901)
- Ann Thomas (1809-?)
- Sarah Thomas (1811-?)
- Robert Brockholes Thomas (1813-1814)
- Henry Brockholes Thomas (1814-?)
- Robert Brockholes Thomas (1816-1817)
- William Lynall Thomas (1819-)
- Robert Brockholes Thomas (1823-?)
- Catherine Elizabeth Thomas (1825-?)
This could be the right family, taking into account that Henry Brockholes Thomas had a daughter named Hazel Lynall Thomas (1883-1968).
Certainly the right family (but I don't think the right Griffith/Sarah marriage). In 1861 at Kensington, Thomas Griffith (sic), solicitor, father of Henry, gives his birthplace as Aldgate, City of London, and his age puts the birth in 1808/9. 1871 (Kensington) Griffith Thomas, solicitor, simply is given as b. London (same age). In 1881 at Egham, Surrey, Grifith Thomas, solicitor, says St Botolph, Aldgate, and again a birth 1808/9.
The correct marriage is certainly 22 Sep. 1804, St. Dunstan, Stepney, of Griffith Thomas of St. Botolph, bachelor, to Sarah Brockhols of St. Dunstan, witnessed by Robert and Ann Brockhols. There was a Sarah Brockhole bap 22 February 1778, St. Botolph Aldgate, daughter of Jacob and Jane, but I would like more than just the coincidence of name before drawing the connection.
The father seems likely the Griffith, son of Griffith and Eleanor (sic), b. 1808 in The Minories, granted liberty of the city by patrimony in the Company of Glovers in 1833, his father having been admitted as Freeman in 1801. (It may seem odd for a solicitor to be a member of the Glover's Company, but membership in the livery companies had become an important social distinction, divorced of actual occupation, and indeed the elder Griffith was a woollendraper living at 11 The Minories in directories from the mid-1800s to at least 1830.) In turn, he is certainly the Griffith, son of Griffith late of The Minories who for 1p apprenticed himself to William Griffith, Citizen and Glover (who was a woollendraper) , in 1792 (his brother William Griffith was apprenticed 1791 to John Young, Citizen & Carpenter). If you ballpark this apprentice's age at about 14, that makes him the Griffith Thomas bap 3 Aug 1777, St. Botolph, son of Griffith & Catherine. They would be the Griffith Thomas ae 21+, surgeon of Trinity Minories, London, and Catherine Coleman, age 21+, who received licence from the Diocese of London to marry at Trinity 12 Nov 1771. "Griffith Thomas, A Man" was bur. St. Botolph Aldgate 23 Jan 1780, inwhose PCC will dated 21 December 1771 and probated in February 1780, he is surgeon of the Osterley, an EIC ship, and names wife Catherine, living with her father David Coleman in the Minories, and names his brother William Thomas, woollendraper, and wife's brother David Coleman as executors.
The marriage of Griffith Thomas, son of Griffith to Martha Woolley, daughter of John at St. Nicholas, Brighton, 11 Jan 1840, is certainly the correct one. They had 4 children bapt at St. George, Camberwell. Martha's birthplace is reported as Walworth, Surrey (1861 & 1871 - none given in 1881) in or about 1818/9.
Enough for now.
taf
Griffith Thomas, father of Henry Brockholes Thomas, was probably the Griffith Thomas, son of Griffith and Sarah of the Minories, who was born 24 April 1828 and bap 18 May at St. Botolph Aldgate.

I believe you are correct in identifying Griffith Sr. as the Griffith Thomas bap 3 Aug 1777, St. Botolph, son of Griffith & Catherine. Griffith Sr. was buried at Maker, Cornwall on 20 August 1844 as Griffith Thomas of Anderton, age 67. According to a transcription of his M.I. he died 14 August 1844 age 67. Both records result in a 1777 birth year.

FYI - I identified Griffith Thomas of Anderton, Maker, Cornwall as Griffith Sr. based on his daughter Ann's death notice, The Times (London) November 28, 1882, p. 1, col. 2: “On the 25th inst., at Park House, Englefield-green, Surrey, the residence of her brother, Griffith Thomas, ANN THOMAS, of Anderton, Maker, Cornwall, eldest daughter of Griffith Thomas, late of the same place, in her 74th year."

Ann was listed with the Griffith Thomas Jr. family in 1841 and she was also called his sister in an 1839 criminal case:
https://books.google.com/books?id=yq4DAAAAQAAJ&pg=PA562

According to the National Probate Calender her will was proved 10 February 1883 by Sarah Thomas and Catherine Elizabeth Thomas, both of Anderton House, her sisters.

St. Botolph parish records record the baptisms of Ann (1809), Sarah (1811), and Catherine Elizabeth (1825), all daughters of Griffith & Sarah Thomas of the Minories.

I should also add that in 1851 eight-year old Henry B. [Brockholes] Thomas (whose ancestry we are discussing) was enumerated in the household of Ann & Sarah Thomas at Higher Anderton, Parish of Maker, Cornwall. According to the census he was their nephew.

I have wondered, but haven't checked. Is this the Lamplugh Brooksbank family?

The Lamplugh of Lamplugh Hall in Lamplugh were an old knightly Cumbrian family where the resident male line died out in the eighteenth century. The Lordship of the Manor of Lamplugh & Arlecdon passed to the Brooksbanks, which I think they sold in 2000.

Here's another Edward III line I worked out for Jack Brooksbank's great-grandfather Giles Newton. I hit a brick wall when I reached Jane (Mattenley) Harrison (#13). To make a long story short I eventually identified her as the illegitimate daughter of John Lane of Kings Bromley, Staffordshire & Melissa Mattenley but had no proof. I emailed the Kings Bromley Historians, whose website I had found on the internet, and received a reply from Dr. Allan Howard. He has researched the Lane family and confirmed that John Lane had an illegitimate daughter named Jane Mattenley/Mattingley. But he didn't know her mother's identity or what became of her, so he had one piece of the puzzle and I had the other.

Generations 1-12 are taken from The Plantagenet Roll, Anne of York Volume, digital images in Ancestry. See Tables I, II, XXVII, XXII, XXXIV, and p. 434. I've listed my sources for Generations 13-17.

Interestingly enough (at least for Americans like me), Giles Newton was born in Windom, Cottonwood County, Minnesota, USA, where his parents belonged to a small English colony. According to local newspaper articles they recreated their lives in England: played polo, went foxhunting, attended the local Episcopal Church (part of the Anglican Communion). The family returned to England in 1893 where Giles's father accepted a position as Inspector for the Board of Agriculture (now the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries).

Thanks for posting this. I didn't have any information on Philip Cornish other than his father's name.

I believe that an Edward III descent for William Gore of Woodford, 2nd husband of Frances Jane Gorges Gore (A15 above) has not yet been mentioned in this thread. Here it is:

1. Edward III, King of England; m. Philippa of Hainault
2. Thomas of Woodstock, Duke of Gloucester; m. Eleanor de Bohun
3. Anne [Plantagenet]; m. (3) William Bourchier, Count of Eu
4. Henry Bourchier, Earl of Essex, Count of Eu
5. William Bourchier, 1st Lord Fitzwarine; m. (1) Thomasine Hankeford
6. Fulke Bourchier, 2nd Lord Fitzwarine, m. Elizabeth Dinham
7. John Bourchier, 3rd Lord Fitzwarine, 1st Earl of Bath; m. (1) Cecilia Daubeney
8. Elizabeth Bourchier; m. Edward Chichester
9. Sir John Chichester; m. Gertrude Courtenay [of Powderham]
10. Sir Edward Chichester, 1st Viscount Chichester; m. (1) Anne Coplestone
11. Col. John Chichester of Dungannon; m. Mary Jones
12. Elizabeth Chichester; m. Sir John Cole, 1st Baronet, of Newland (d. before 5.X.1691)
13. Catherine Cole; m. Thomas Brooke of Colebrooke (bur. 23.II.1696)
14. Henry Brooke of Colebrooke (bur 17.VII.1761); m. 29.III.1711 Lettice Burton (d. 1763)
15. Lettice Brooke; m. 18.V.1740 Robert Gore of Woodford
16. William Gore of Woodford (11.VIII.1744-2.IV.1815); m. 10.II.1778 Frances Jane Gorges Gore

Details on almost all of the individuals in this descent can be found in the Genealogics database. The few connections not shown in Genealogics can be easily verified via the peerages (i.e., Burke's).

I have wondered, but haven't checked. Is this the Lamplugh Brooksbank family?
The Lamplugh of Lamplugh Hall in Lamplugh were an old knightly Cumbrian family where the resident male line died out in the eighteenth century. The Lordship of the Manor of Lamplugh & Arlecdon passed to the Brooksbanks, which I think they sold in 2000.

Hello Gawin

Thank you for that. It is indeed the same family - the account made for a fascinating read.

When I was in Lamplugh in 1999, my cousin and hostess Pam Dickinson was very grateful for the assistance of the Brooksbank family in restoring the old gateway to Lamplugh Hall (that had collapsed in a gale). Pic here:

Here's a link to the Brooksbank entry from Burke's Peerage, 1949 ed.:

Thank you.

I've never really followed Lamplugh/Raper/Brooksbank genealogy, though my family started as stewards for Lamplugh Hall in the early seventeenth century, or possibly a touch earlier. My interest has been in the yeoman families, like mine, that surrounded them.

The Yorkshire connection to Lamplugh seems to be shrouded in mystery - not just at this gentry level.
