PREFACE 

In presenting the history and genealogy as contained in the 
following pages the author does not for one moment claim to 
have included the issue of each line or of each marriage, nor of 
all those descended from each family, but rather to carry out th- 
descent of the direct line of the family to the first American l - 
cestor, from whence those descended can arrive to that positic i 
where they can conveniently trace their lineage from the frs 
ancestor arriving in America. 

In the forthcoming pages many who have no record or w 
have not become members of any patriotic bodies or who hs 
failed to avail themselves at a critical period of the requisite 
information, will find much aid in being enabled to trace t 
some ancestor their lineage as contained herein. .. 

It may be very difficult in time to trace the lineage of the _^ 
who, living in a country filled with an admixture of varioi , 
races, to prove their pure blood from American ancestors who 
settled in this country, unless we keep a true record. 

Although there are many references to the distinguished 
Bayard family, there appears to be no connected line of de- 
scent from the three brothers, Balthazer, Petrus and Colonel 
Nicholas Bayard, the sons of Samuel Bayard and Ann S yvf s- 
ant, which can be found together in one book. The »r 

does not pretend to give all the lines and issues of the c^.> at 
branches, nor of all the children of each marriage, nor is any 
claim made that perfection of the genealogy of this family has 
been attained. Those descended from Nicholas Bayard id 
Catherine Livingston will find by consultation of the Hous? of 
Alexander that they have a Royal lineage. 

The history and genealogy of the Houstoun family is trac »d 
from the first ancestor as given in Crawford's History of the 
Shire of Renfrew, to the family who settled in Georgia and he 
Royal lineage of the line from Sir Patrick Houstoun is pro ^n 
by his marriage to the daughter of Lord Bargany who in- rn 
married a daughter af the first Marquis of Douglas of le 
Angus family. 

The family of Boiton of Georgia has been already v/ritten and 
prmted by Rev. Robert Bolton, Reginald Bolton and Dr. IL Car- 



rington Bolton, and the lines of the families are to be found in 
che Hal ersham and other Southern Families and the Lineage 
Book uf the Order of Washington. Therefore to avoid a long 
repetition of names we simply trace the family to Robert Bol- 
ton of Philadelphia, Pa., and his children, several of whom re- 
mqV^d to Georgia and Maryland, and some of their descendants 
to New York and Virginia. The point in the Bolton Lineage is to 
shpw.th^ descent from the ancient families of Assheton, Hulton 
of Hulton Park, and the Royal Lineage through the families of 
Byrgn, Barnake, Dryby and de Tateshall to Mabel Albini, daugh- 
ter ^of tlu Carl of Arundel, and hence to Charlemagne. As also 
TheHul : A-Pilkinton marriage to the Earls of Warren, to which 
line th'-i>aah the Queen Bee of the Hive, Elizabeth the daugh- 
ter of Hugh the Great Count of Vermandois, carries us back to 
the Houses of Capet and Charlemagne. Although not men- 
tioHed in ttiis work, a branch of the Adams family of Georgia 
is doubly descended from the one of Byron through the Dolton 
as has beeri stated, the other from Reade of Virginia by a 
inj. iage < f Robert Reade to Mildred, daughter of Sir Francis 
Windebanke and Lady Windebanke, daughter of Sir Edward 
Dymoke and Ann Talboys. 

Fro I the Houstoun family we find branches of the following 
lines ojs'^ended, such as Johnston, Mcintosh, Clinch, Sadler, 
Cole^^fioilock, Anderson of Georgia, Waring, Molyneux, Hopkins, 
Deme/e. Sullivan, Chisholm and others. 

From the Bolton line, branches of the families of Habersham, 
MaxWell, Milledge, Lesesne, Colquitt, Demer4 Adams, Elliott, 
McBryde, Newell, Turner, Bulloch and others.

site information from them, and takes this means of thanking

Arms : ^ Azure, a chevron between three escallops, or. 
Crest: A demi-horse, argent. 
Motto: Amor honor et justitia. 

rhis ancient, noble' and very prominent family of New York, 
New Jersey, Delaware, Pennsylvania and Georgia took its rise in 
France, but the persecutions of the Huguenots appear to have 
driven them to Holland, where we find at an early day Rev. 
Nicholas Bayard', D. D., pastor of a French Church in Antwerp, 
and a professor in a College prior to 1599, who had a son. Rev. 
Lazare Bayard. 

Among the prominent members of the family we find Colonel 
Nicholas Bayard, an Alderman of the City of New Amsterdam 
or New York, who in the days of the early history of the Colony 

'The above arms, borne by Samuel Bayard 1638 (Holland). The dif- 
ference in those borne by Petrus Bayard of New York is only in Crest, a 
demi-uniconi. argent; and Motto, Honor et justitia. 

* All families on the Continent of Europe who bear coat armor are con- 
sidered noble, as were also the ancient feudal barons in England and 
Scotland. 

' General James Grant Wilson had despaired of finding the ancestor of 
Bayard, when later on he found Rev. Nicholas Bayard, a pastor in a 
Church in H«)lland. 



d. mSTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BAYARD FAMILY 

was one of its foremost citizens ; as also Petrus Bayard, Alder-w 
man ; Samuel Bayard, Colonel John Bubenheim' Bayard a most 
distinguished citizen who occupied many positions of promi- 
nence; the Delaware Bayards, five of whom became United, 
States Senators; Dr. Nicholas Serl Bayard, who removed to 
Georgia and was one of the founders of the Georgia Medical 
Society in 1805 ; and his son, Nicholas James, a banker ; as also 
Rev. George Livingston Bayard, Chaplain in U. S. Navy. 

In New York the family descended from or was allied to the 
foremost families, among whom were the Stuyvesants, Van 
Cortlandts, Livingstons, Van Rensselaers, Schuylers, Cuylers, Van 
Brughs and others ; in Pennsylvania and Delaware, such fam- 
ilies as Asheton, Bassett and Hodge ; and in Georgia descended 
from or related to the Glens, Kings, Mclntoshes, Bullochs, Seays 
and others. 

Among a large number of Huguenot refugees who were driven 
from France by the edict of October 25, 1685, were many who 
fled to Holland, among whom were the Bayards. 

In May of the year 1647, Mrs. Samuel Bayard, who was Ann 
Stuyvesant, sister of Governor Peter Stuyvesant, left the Old 
World, having lost her husband who died in Holland prior to 
that date, and accompanied by her four children, Balthazar, 
Petrus, Nicholas and Catharine, arrived in New Amsterdam, 
now New York. Judith, the sister of Samuel Bayard, had mar- 
ried the Director General, Peter Stuyvesant, and thus there was 
a double relationship between the families of Bayard and Stuy- 
vesant. 

We will now proceed to give the genealogy of this ancient 
family, which in every way became one of the foremost in 
America.' 

This line ^as heretofore accepte(f|begin3 with Rev. Nicholas 
Bayard, a pastor in Holland in 1590. who it is stated married 
Blandina Cond6 and had Lazare Bayard, who married 1607, 
Judith de Vos and had Samuel Bayard, who married Ann 

• He dropped the name of Bubenheim and is known only as Colonel 
John Bayard.

EXCURSUS GLEN. 

This ancient family of Glen, of Linlithgow, Scotland, unQue3tionably 
descended from the family of Bar, as proved by the similarity of arms and 
by the assertion of several authors. In Linlithgow they were most promi- 
nent holding at different times the position of Provost and being mem- 
bers of the Scotch Parliament. The line from which the Georgia branch 
derives its descent is apparently the following, as it is asserted that Wii- 
Jiam Glen, of Charleston, S, G, was son of John Glen, of Linlithgow, and 
the arms of the Georgia family are those borne by the Linlithgow line. 
James Glen the elder, 1650-51, was Bailie and Provost of the Burgh. He 
had. besides others, John Glen, baptized Jan. 31, 1630, married Helen 
Roberson and had William Glen, baptized Dec 14, 1656, married Helen 
Henderson and had: John Glen, baptized Sept. 15, 1677, who in point of 
time must have been the father of William Glen, born 1701, who seems to 
have gone to Philadelphia and met there Ann Alricks, daughter of Wes- 
sells .-Vlricks, son of Hon, Peter Alricks, of Delav/are, a very prominent citi- 
zen of that Colony or Province. Besides others, William Glen and Ann 
Alricks had : John Glen. Chief Justice of Georgia, 1776-78, who married 
Sarah, the daughter of Dr. Noble Wymberley Jones and Sarah, daughter 
of John Davis, Esq. Dr. N. W. Jones was son of Hon. Noble Jones and 
Miss Wymberley-. Judge John Glen and Sarah Jones had, besides others : 
Noble V/ymberley Glen, City Marshal of Savannah, Ga., who had : Sarah 
Glen, married Nicholas James Bayard and had those already stated. 

^ Named for his ancestors on his father's side. General Osgard and 
General Vase. 

* So considered by Captain Douglas Wimberley. 



10 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BAYARD FAMILY 

Note.— As the object of this short account of the Glens is merely to 
show the direct line of several in this book, we have omitted dates and 
other matters which will be fully set forth when the history of the Glen 
family, now nearly finished, is ready for publication. The history and 
genealogy of the families of Alricks and Wessells has been already pub- 
lished by Drs. Adams and Bulloch, as has the family of Noble Jones, of 
Georgia. It is proper here to state that William Glen removed to Charles- 
ton, S. C.. at an early date and died there ; his other son, John Glen, re- 
moving to Savannah, Ga.

Donald McKenzie. the ancestor of the Atwood family of Georgia, appears 
to have been one of the Highland Clan who accompanied John More Mc- 
intosh , the Highland Chieftain, to Georgia. He had granted to him by 
King George III a tract of land called " Oak Hill," near Darien, Ga. He 
married Mary Merriman, daughter it is said of an English officer, and it is 
stated that she came to Georgia in the family of General Oglethorpe. 
Among the early settlers in the Colony we find the name of Merriman. 
John Cooper, connected with the Jones family of Georgia, married a Miss 
Merriraan. 

Dcnald McKenzie and Mary Merriman had a daughter, Ann McKenzie, 
who lived all of her life of 101 years at "Cedar Point," a tract of land 
granted to William Johnston. She was born about 1733 and died in 1834. 
She married John Mcintosh^ and they had a son, John Lachlan Mcintosh, 
who married Margaret McCullough and had a daughter, Ann Margaret 
Mcintosh, who married Henry Skelton Atwood and had : 

I. James Alfred Atwood, married Ann Livingston Bayard. 

II. Ruth Ann Atwood, married Dr. William Elliott Dunwody. 

III. William Henry Atwood, married first. Miss Butts ; second, Louise 
Butts. 

' Marjory Mcintosh, daughter of Col. William Mcintosh, married James 
Spalding, of the family of Ashantilly, and had among others Elizabeth 

Spalding, who married WylJy, from which marriage descended 

Ludwig M. Schmidt, who married Ann Rosalie Atwood. 

'Among the Mclntoshes who arrived in Georgia was a scion of the old 
Mclriiosh of Holme, Cadets of Mcintosh of Mcintosh, as also the Mcln- 
toshes of Mala or Mallow. 

^ The family of John Mcintosh lived at Cedar Point, which was granted 
to William Johnston. Among the other settlers of the Darien Colony we 
find the M .CuUochs, Cuthberts, &c. (See History of Georgia.)

LIVINGSTON. 

This ancient and noble line extends back to a remote period, and in 
New York we find the family occupying many positions of prominence. 

We will, however, begin the genealogy with Sir Andrew de Livingston, 
Sheriff of Lanark, 1296, whose grandson. Sir William Livingston, of Callen- 
dar and subsequently of Kilsyth, married Christian, daughter of Sir Pat- 
rick Callendar, and had : Sir John Livingston, who married, first, a daugh- 
ter of Menteith of Kerse; and second, a daughter of Sir James Douglas, of 
Dalkeith, from whom descended the family of Kilsyth. Sir John fell in 
battle 1402 at Homildon Hill, leaving by the daughter of Menteith of Kerse : 
Sir Alexander Livingston, who had : 

L Sir James Livingston, a Lord of Parliament, 1458, barony of 
Callendar. 

II. Alexander Livingston, ancestor of Dunipace line. 

Sir James, Lord Livingston, had a son James, second Lord, who was 
succeeded as third Lord by James Livingston who is considered to be the 
son of Alexander, supposed to be the second son of James, the first Lord. 

James Livingston, third Lord Livingston, married Agnes, daughter of 
Sir John Houstoun of that ilk, and had : William Livingston, fourth Lord 
of Callendar, who married Agnes, daughter of Alexander Hepburn of Whit- 
some, and had: 

T. Alexander Livingston, fifth Lord. 

II. James Livingston, died prior to October 13, 1547; fell at the bat- 
_tle of Pinkie. . , : ^ 

VJames Livingston,' son of the fifth Lord, had) Rev. Alexander Livings- 
ton, Rector of Monyabroch, 1561, during the reign of Mary Queen of Scots. 
His son. Rev. William Livingston, minister of Monyabroch, had the noted 
Rev. Jofin Livingston, of Ancrum (born 1603, died 1672); married Janet 
Fleming (born 1613, died 1693-4). Besides other issue there was Robert 
Livingston, born Dee. 13, 1654, at Ancrum, Roxburgshire, who went to the 
Colony of New York, where he had the grant of a tract of land called Liv- 
ingston Manor, and hence was first Lord of the Manor. He married Alida 
Schuyler (born 1656, died 1729), and had, besides others, Philip Livings- 
ton, who had: Peter Van Brugh Livingston (baptized Nov. 3, 1710, died 
1793). He married Mary Alexander (born Oct. 16, 1721, gdied Sept. 27, 
1769). She was daughter of James Alexander^, who went to New Jersey

Livingstons of Livingston Manor by Edwin Brockholdst Livingston. Do 
not pretend to give all issue.

and became Surveyor General of New Jersey, and in 1720 member of 
Governor Burnett's Council. James Alexander (died 1756), married Mary, 
daughter of John Spratt, of Wigton, Scotland, who came to America. These 
Alexanders were of Royal lineage, tracing from Alister or Alexander, son 
of John, who married a daughter of Robert III. Peter Van Brugh Liv- 
ingston and Mary Alexander had : Catharine Livingston, baptized Oct. 2, 
1743 ; married April 20, 1763, Nicholas Bayard ; died Nov. 2, 1775. 

The direct line of Livingston of Callendar, from whom descends the 
Earls of Linlithgow, is as follows, as given in The Scot's Peerage : 

Sir William Livingston married Christian Callendar and had:* Sir Wil- 
liam Livingston who had : Sir John Livingston, who married first a daugh- 
ter of Menteith of Kerse. He married second, Agnes, daughter of Sir James 
Douglas of Dalkeith and was ancestor of Livingston of Kilsyth. 

Sir John Livington, by a daughter of Menteith of Kerse, had : Sir Alex- 
ander of Callendar, who married a daughter of family of Dundas of Dundas 
and had : James Livingston, first Lord, who by Marion had : James Liv- 
ingston, second Lord, and probably Alexander whose son. Sir James, 
bacame third Lord, who married before 9 June, 1491 (died 1504), Agnes, 
daughter of Sir John Houstoun of that ilk and had : William, fourth Lord' 
who married Agnes, daughter of Hepburn of Whitsome, and had: 
L Alexander Livingston. 
♦ II. Mr. James Livingston. 

III. William Livingston. 

IV. Margaret Livingston. 

In the Addenda and Corridenda of Scot's Peerage it is stated that Mr. ^ 
"* James Livingston may have married and have been the father of Rev. ' 
Alexander Livingston of Monyabroch, ancestor of the Livingstons of New 
J\X^ York.^ Se^glsoWeduction by Mr. Edwin Brockholst Livingston in his work. ^- />J3 
^ In same Peerage the Livingstons of Kilsyth line are given as follows : 
Sir John Livingston of Callendar married Agnes Douglas. 
Edward Livingston, son of above by Agnes Douglas, had : William Liv- 
ingston, who married Elizabeth Graham of the House of Montrose and 
had : William Livingston, married 1504 Janet, daughter of Sir Robert Bruce 
of Airth and had, among others: 

Elizabeth Livingston, married Gabriel Cunningham of Craigends. 
As has been shown, Gabriel Cunningham and Elizabeth Livingston 
had, among others, Janet, who married Sir Patrick Houstoun. 

MENTEITH OF CARSE OR KERSE. 

Maurice Menteith, of the ancient line of Earls of Menteith, left two 
daughters : 

I. Isabel Menteith. 

II. Mary Menteith. 

Mary, Countess of Menteith, married Walter, third son of Walter, third 
High Steward of Scotland, and thus became fifth Earl of Menteith. Tlie 
issue of this marriage were: 

* May have been brother of Sir John following. 



18 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BAYARD FAMILY 

I. Alexander Menteith. 

II. Sir John Menteith, who married and had, besides others : Sir 
Walter Menteith, ancestor of Menteith of Rusky and Kerse^ or Carse. 

This Walter Menteith of Rusky'^ had, besides others : 

I, John Stewart, 1352, who married Marjory Sterling, daughter of 
Sir John Sterling of Carse and Alva^ son of Sir John Sterling, Knight, of 
Carse and Alva, Sheriff of Sterling 1244-1270, of Ochiltree, son of Sir Alex- 
ander Sterling of Cawdor, 1180-1245. 

Sir John Stewart, or Menteith, and Marjory SterUng had, besides others, 
a daughter who married Sir John Livingston (his first wife) of Callendar 
and had issue (see Livingston). 

Sir John Livingston married second, Agnes*, daughter of Sir James 
Douglas of Dalkeith, and thus became the progenitor of the Livingstons 
of Kilsyth. 

Royal Lineag-e of Living-ston of Callendar and New York 
from Dundas of Dundas. 

According to Douglas^, the family of Dundas of Dundas has, in the 
opinion of the historians, descended from the noble and illustrious line of 
Dunbar. Earls of March, who also trace their descent from the Saxon kings 
of England through the Earls of Northumberland, 

Cospatrick. 5th Earl of March, died 1139, had issue : 
I. Cospatrick. 

n. Uchtred, first of the line of Dundas. who obtained from Waldene 
his uncle the lands of Dundas. Uchtred had Helias who obtained hy 
charter the estate and assumed the name of Dundas. He was succeeded 
by Serl de Dundas. 1170-1249. and thus the line runs down through many 
generations, to where its two branches of Dundas and Fingask® separate. 

According to Scot's Peerage, and to Douglas. Sir Alexander Livingston 
of Callendar married a daughter of James Dundas of Dundas', and had 
James Livingston, first Lord of Callendar. who was the progenitor of the 
family of the Lords of Callendar and Earls of Linlithgow. We thus see that 
the Livingstons of Callendar are of royal lineage. 

The Dundas of Dundas and the Livingstons of Kilsyth who married into 
family of Dalkeith are both of royal descent, the latter being ancestor of 
Houstoun of Georgia.

ALEXANDER. 

In the history of The House of Alexander, Volume I, we find an ac- 
count of the Alexanders of New Jersey, and have deduced therefrom ap- 
parently correctly the descent of the family, for which see page 80 of that 
ilume. This ancient line descends from Somerled, Prince of Argyle in 
1140, who married Elfrica, daughter of Olave the Red, King of Man. From 
this marriage descended Raneld, who had sons Donald and Roderick Mc- 
Donald. Donald McDonald had three sons : 
I. Roderick McDonald. 
n. Angus McDonald. 
III. Alexander McDonald. 
The grandson of Angus was John McDonald, Lord of the Isles, who 
married Princess Margaret Stewart, daughter of King Robert III, of Scot- 
land. By this marriage they had, among others, Alister or Alexander, 
progenitor of the McAlexanders or Alexander family. 

Prior to 1505 a descendant of AUster or Alexander, younger son of the 
Lord of Lochaber, obtained from the House of Argyle a portion of the 
lands of Menstry. 

. ">k. Thomas Alexander de Menstry had a son, Andrew Alexander, who in 1526 
had the Ufe rent of the lands. He married Katharine Graham and had: 
V I. Alexander Alexander, 
n. Andrew Alexander. 
V Alexander Alexander married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Robert Doug- 
las of Lochleven, and had : 

^ I. Andrew Alexander of Menstry. 

n. William Alexander. 
A^^lrew Alexander had two sons : 

I. Alexander Alexander, married Elizabeth Forbes, by whom he had : 

1. William Alexander, who had a son, William Alexander. 

2. James Alexander.

tosh and Ann, daughter of Sir Patrick Houstoun. 

4. Catharine A. Bayard, married Robert Charles Johnson, of 
New York. 

In Scot's Peerage, written by different authors under Sir J. Balfour Paul, 
there is a discrepancy between the account stated and that given by the 
author of the House of Alexander, and it would appear that the former 
is in error. 

In the first place the author seems to deny the descent of the Alexan- 
der line from the Lord of the Isles, thus contradicting the account given 
by historians ; and in the second place denies that in several things, for 
instance that there was only one Andrew Alexander of Menstry, whereas 
although there were Andrews who though they may not have been styled 
as of Menstry, still may have considered themselves of Menstry, as indeed 
they were of that descent. The article seems prejudical against General 
William Alexander, who it would appear did have a right to the title of 
Earl of Sterling. 

The following is the account given by The Scot's Peerage, as stated by 
the claim of General Alexander, which is very much the same as has been 
deduced by the author, taken from The House of Alexander, which see : 

Andrew Alexander of Menstrie, 1526, had : 

I. John Alexander in Gogar. 

II. Alexander Alexander. 

John in Gogar had : Alexander in Milnab who had: David in Muthill 
who had: James Alexander who went to New Jersey and had, among 
others: William Alexander (died about June 12, 1795); married 1748, 
Sarah, daughter of Philip Livingston, of Livingston Manor. 

The Peerage makes John in Gogar the son of Andrew first. The " House 
of Alexander" makes the descent of John in Gogar or Pitgogar the son of 
Andrew who was great-great-grandson of first Andrew Alexander, but 
seems to think tha^ William Alexander, American claimant, may have 

'Genfei;pl Wilnam Alexander, Lord Sterling, was awarded the Earldom

HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BAYARD FAMILY 21 

descended from John Alexander, the great-great-grandson of the first An- 
drew ; therefore the deduction of the Alexanders of America seems to be 
correct. 

Now according to The Scot's Peerage the line of the Alexanders would 
be as follows : 

Thomas Alexander of Menstrie 1505 had: Andrew Alexander 1526 who 
married Catharine Graham and had : 

I. Alexander Alexander, married second, Elizabeth Forbes. 

II. Andrew Alexander, the Presbyter. 
in. William Alexander. 

Alexander Alexander and Elizabeth Forbes had : 

I. Andrew Alexander. 

II. William Alexander, married Elizabeth Coutts and had : I. Alex- 
ander, first Earl of Sterling, who had : I. William. H. Anthony. III. Henry. 

WilHam had William, grandson of Earl of Sterling, who succeeded as 
second Earl. The line becoming extinct, Henry, the third son, became 
third Earl, who was succeeded by his son Henry, fourth Earl, succeeded by 
his son Henry, fifth Earl. The title becoming extinct, fell into abeyance, 
and was claimed by William Alexander of America. 

Descent of Family of McDonald. 

Godfried, surnamed Godfried of Crovan, King of Man', son of Harold 
the Black, of Royal family of Norway, King of Man, had Olave the Red, 
who had Godred the Black, whose daughter was Ragnhildis or Rachel or 
Elfrica, 1140. She married Somerled, Prince or Lord of Argyle, and had : 

Reginald, who married Formia, sister of Thomas Randolph, Earl of 
Moray, or as the Scot's Peerage says, " Or may have married a daughter 
of Ranulph, son of Dugall, ancestor of the famous Earl." 

Reginald had : Donald De Isla, ancestor of the McDonalds, who married 
a daughter of Walter the High Steward, and had, among others: "Alexan- 
der McDonald, ancestor of the McAllisters of Loup, and of Alexander of 
Menstrie, Earl of Sterling." 

Stephanus Bayard'', son of Samuel Bayard and Margarita Van 
Cortiandt, married March 12, 1725, Alida Vetch, daughter of Col. 
Samuel Vetch and Margaret Livingston, and had : 

I. Samuel Bayard. 

II. Nicholas Bayard. 

III. William Bayard, baptized June 15, 1729. 

Note. — Douglas" Peerage gives a much fairer account of case of General 
William Alexander, as also a more lucid descent of his line.

This ancient and noble family is so well known in history that it would 
be useless to go into a long account of the " Lordly Line of High St. Clair." 
The genealogy of Major General Arthur St. Clair is also so well known that

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF COL. UOHN BAYARD. 

Colonel John Bubenheim Bayard (he dropped the name Bu- 
benheim) was bora in the Great House, Bohemia Manor, Cecil 
Co., Maryland, on August 11, 1738, and died in New Brunswick, 
N. J., on January 7, 1807. He was one of the most distinguished 
members of this ancient family, holding many positions of im- 
portance. 

He signed the non-importation agreement Oct. 25, 1765 ; was 
delegate to Provincial Convention, July 15. 1774 ; on Committee 
of Safety and Council of Safety. He had also quite a military 
career and was a gallant officer. In 1775 he was a Major of 
the Second Battalion and then Colonel of Associators and served 
during a period of two years. He was in the battle of Princeton 
and was personally thanked by General Washington for services 
rendered. He was also in the battles of Germantown, Brandy- 
wine and Valley Forge. He appears to have served in a mili- 
tary capacity and as a member of the State Board of War until 
after Dec. 4, 1777. 

He had a seat on the Supreme Executive Council, Oct. 31, 
1781 ; was Judge of High Court of Appeals, March 15. 1783 ; 
member of Continental Congress 1785; removed from Philadel- 
phia, Pa., to New Brunswick, N. J., and became Mayor of that 
town in 1790, and Judge of Court of Common Pleas. We thus 
see what a distinguished gentleman he was : Patriot, soldier, 
and statesman.

many positions of importance. 

Many are the families descended from this noble line, and we

Waring, Kollock, Woodruff, Clinch, Molyneux and others who 
descended from this sept, and inherit Royal and noble lineage, 
through Sir Patrick Houstoun', first Baronet, who married a 
daughter of Sir John Hamilton, first Lord Bargany. who mar- 
ried a daughter of the Marquis of Douglas, descended from 
Robert III., of Scotland.

26 mSTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HOUSTOUN FAMILY 

In the reign of Malcolm IV. of Scotland, 1153-65, the grant 
of a Barony was made to Hugo De Padvinan, and the name of 
the Baron was changed to Hugh's-town ; afterward, v/hen sur- 
names came in vogue, the name was eventually corrupted 
to Houstoun., .Several descendants of this Hugo' received 
Knighthood, and in 1668 the representative of the family was 
created a Baronet by King Charles II. of England. When Gen- 
eral Oglethrope went to Georgia, the fifth Baronet, Sir Patrick 
Houstoun, accompanied him, and founded this ancient and il- 
lustrious family of Georgia, who helped lay the foundations of the 
commonwealth. We find at an early day Dr. William Houstoun,

proud of her Johnstons, for James Johnston v/as the publisher of the 
Georgia Gazette, without which many facts of history would have been 
forever lost, and his brother. Dr. Lewis Johnston, of Edinburgh, practiced 
medicine with Dr. John Irvine in Georgia, the latter having married (hij

CUNNINGHAM OF CRAIGENDS. 

This ancient and noble family, a Cadet line of Cunningham, Earl of 
Glencairn, descends from Sir Robert Cunningham, who married Anne, 
daughter of Su- John Montgomery of Ardrossan, who married Agnes of the 
Isles ; son of Sir John Montgomery by Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of 
Sir Hugh Eglington by Egida Stewart, half sister of Robert II. and widow 
of Sir James Lindsay of Crawford. 

Sir Robert Cunningham and Anne Montgomery had : Alexander Cun- 
ningham, created a Lord of Parliament as Lord Kilmauers and later first 
Earl of Glencairn, who married a daughter of Sir Adam Hepburn of Hailes, 
second Lord Hailes, who married Elyne or Helen Home, daughter of Sir 
Alexander Home, 1426, who married Mariota, daughter of John, son of Sir 
Robert Lawder^ of the Bass by Agnes Fallow of Fallow. 

^ History of Family of Lawder. 

*It is here proper to state that the accounts of descent of the later Era- 
sers vary so much as between Scot's Peerage and others that it becomes 
difficult to state the exact lineage of the lines as given between McKenzie 
and Scot's Peerage. 



40 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HOUSTOUN FAMILY 

Sir Robert Lawder of the Bass was son of Sir Alan Lawder who married 
Alicia Campbell, daughter of Sir Colin Campbell* of Lochawe, grandson of 
Sir Colin, son of Sir Neil Campbell by Mary Bruce, sister of King Robert 
Bruce and daughter of Robert Bruce, Earl of Carrick, of Royal lineage, by- 
Donald, Earl of Mar, and Helen, daughter of Lewellin, Prince of North 
Wales. 

Sir Alexander Home, first Lord Home, 1426, was son of Alexander Home 
of Home and Dunglass by Jean Hay, daughter of Sir William Hay of 
Locharworth. 

It has been shown that the Earl of Glencairn married Margaret, daugh- 
ter of Sir Adam Hepburn, second Lord Hailes. He was the son of Sir 
Patrick Hepburn,' first Lord Hailes, who married twice; his second wife 
at time of his death was Elene Wallace. Sir Patrick was son of Sir Adam 
HepbiuTi of Hailes, son of Patrick Hepburn by a daughter of the family of 
Vaux or de Vallibus of Dirleton ; son of Sir Patrick Hepburn and Agnes. 
(See Scot's Peerage for these lines. ) 

Having shown the illustrious descent of Cunningham of Glencairn. we 
will now proceed to state the descent of the Craigends hues. 

Alexander Cnnningham, first Earl of Glencairn,^ married as has been 
stated a daughter of Sir Adam Hepburn, second Lord Hailes. By this 
marriage, besides others, there was: 

L William Cunningham of Craigends\ who married first, Elizabeth, 
daughter of Sir Walter Stewart of Arthurly, by whom there was : 

1, William Cunningham, who married Giles, daughter of Sir John 
Campbell of Loudon and had : Gabriel Cunningham ( slain at battle of 
Pinkie, 1547), who married Elizabeth Livingston, daughter of William Liv- 
ingston by Janet, daughter of Robert Bruce of Airth^; son of William Liv- 
ingston, descended in direct line from Sir John Livingston of Callendar (who 
fell at the battle of Homildon Hill) by his second marriage, to Agnes, 
daughter of Sir James Douglas of Dalkeith, who married Agnes Dunbar, 
daughter of Sir Patrick Dunbar by Isabella, daughter of Thomas Randolph, 
Earl of Moray, and Isobel Stewart; son of Sir Thomas Randolph and 
Lady Isobel Bruce*, daughter of Robert Bruce, Earl of Carrick. 

' Sir Patrick, first Lord, had a son, Alexander of Whitsome. 

* Scot's Peerage.

^ See Balfour Pauls Peerage, wherein the author seems to contradict 
the accepted pedigree as to Thomas Randolph having married the sister 
of Robert Bruce. However he appears to admit that there is some close 
relationship of the Randolphs to Robert Bruce. This in no wise affects the 
Dunbar descent from the line stated. 

* Sir Colin Campbell married Mariota or Margaret, daughter of John, 
son of Dougal, son of Sir Neil by the Princess Mary 



HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HOUSTOUN FAMILY 41 

Before proceeding with the further pedigree of Dunbar, it is of interest 
to note that two famiUes in this work descend from the Livingstons of 
Callendar : the Livinilstons of New York and the Houstouns of Georgia. 

Sir Andrew de Livingston, Sheriff of Lanark 1296, had a grandson, Sir 
William de Livingston, who married Christian, daughter of Sir Patrick 
Call'indar, and had: Sir John de Livingston, who fell at the battle of 
Homildon Hill, 1402. He married first, a daughter of Menteith of Kerse, 
from whom the Livingstons of Livingston Manor of New York descend. 

Sir John de Livingston married second, Agnes Douglas, daughter of 
Sir James Douglas of Dalkeith by Agnes Dunbar, and this branch was 
styled Livingstons of Kilsyth which followed in direct line, as has been 
shown, descends to Elizabeth Livingston, daughter of William Livingston 
and Janet Bruce, carries us to the marriage of Gabriel Cunningham of 
Craigends. who parried Elizabeth Livingston and had : 

L Janet Cunningham who married Sir Patrick Houstoun of that ilk, 
and had : I. Sir John Houstoun who married Mary, daughter of Sir James 
Sterling of Keir, and had: Sir Ludovick Houstoun who married Mary, 
daughter of Maxwell of Newmarch, and had: Patrick (died 1652), who had: 
Sir Patrick Houstoun, first Baronet, who married Ann, daughter of Sir 
John Hamilton, Lord Bargany, by a daughter of William Douglas, first 
Marquis of Douglas, and had, among others, a second son, Sir Patrick Hous- 
toun, who went to Georgia and by failure of heirs male of elder lines. 
became the fifth Baronet. 

To proceed further with the Douglas descent, would say that Sir James 
Douglas was the progenitor of the Earls of Morton. He, as has been stated, 
married Agnes Dunbar, daughter of Sir Patrick Dunbar and Isabella, a 
daughter of Thomas Randolph, Earl of Moray, 1312, and Isobel Stewart; 
son of Sir Thomas Randolph by Lady Isobel Bruce, daughter of Robert 
Bruce. Earl of Carrick, of Royal lineage. 

Sir Patrick Dunbar was son of Sir Alexander, son of Patrick Dunbar, 
seventh Ear! of Dunbar and March ; son of Patrick Dunbar, sixth Earl and 
Euphemia, daughter of Walter, third High Steward of Scotland. Patrick, 
sixth Earl, was a son of Patrick, fifth Earl, by Ada, daughter of King V/il- 
liam L, "The Lion" ; and Patrick, the fifth Earl of Dunbar, descended from 
Gospatrick, Earl of Dunbar and March, son of Maldred or Malduin by Eald" 
gith or Algitha, daughter of Uchtred, Earl of Northumberland, by his wife 
Elgiva, daughter of Athel II., King of England: and Malduin was the son 
of Crinan the Thane, Seneschal of the Isles 1005, by Bethoc or Beatrice, 
daughter of Malcolm II.. King of Scotland. 

Thus we ascertain the illustrious descent of the old family of Houstoun 
of Georgia from the ancient families of Scotland. 

Note.— This entire article is based largely on The Scot's Peerage, by 
Sir James Balfour Paul. 



42 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HOUSTOUN FAMILY 

STERLING OF KEIR. 
Lukes of Strevelyn had : Sir William of Keir, 1420, who married first, 
Margaret Cunningham and had: Sir William, 1471-1503, who married (as 
his second wife) before 1495, Margaret, daughter of James Chrichton of 
Ruthvendenny, and had: Sir John 1503, who married Margaret Forrester, 
daughter of Sir Walter Forrester of Torwood, and had : Sir James Sterling, 
1539-1588, who married, as his second wife, Jean Chisholm of that ancient 
line and had: Margaret Sterling, who married Sir John liouatoun of that 
ilk.' (Thay had a charter of Houstoun 1G09). 

Royal Linsagfo of Mcintosh of Mcintosh and Borlum. 
Shaw, 1179, stated to be descended from McDurf, Thane of Fife, mar- 
ried Egidia Montgomery, daughter of Hugh Montgomery, Chief of his name, 
and had: Shaw 1210, married Mary Sandilands and had a second son, 
William Macintosh, who married Beatrice Lermouth of Fife and had : Shaw, 
who married a daughter of Thane of Calder and had : Ferquhard Macin- 
tosh, who married Mora, daughter of Angus or Eaneas Og McDonald of the 
Isles, and had : Angus^or Eaneas Mcintosh, who married Evaj only daughter 
of Gilpatrick Macdougal Vic Gillichattan, Chief of Clan Chattan, and had : 
William Mcintosh who married second, Margaret McLeod, daughter of 
Roderick Mor McLeod of Lewis by Margaret, daughter of John McDonald, 
Lord of the Isles, and had :'^ Malco lm Beg Mcintosh, who married Mora Mc- 
Ranald, d^fughter of Ranald McRanald, first of Moidart, and had, among 
others : I. Lachlan Mcintosh of Mcintosh, and also a third son, Allan Mc- 
intosh of Holme, whose descendant, John Mcintosh of Holme, went to 
Georgia. 

^ Lachla n Mcintosh of Mcintosh married Catherine, daughter of Sir Dun- 
can Grant, Chief of the Grants and first of Freuchie, and had •} L achla n 
Beg Mcltosh who marr ied Jean or Jan et Gordon, daughter of Sir Alex- 
ander Gordon of Lochinvar, who married Jean Kennedy, daughter of John, 
second Lord Kennedy, by Elizabeth, daughter of Alexander Gordon, Earl 
of Huntly, and Ehzabeth, daughter of William, Lord Chrichton. 

John, second Lord Kennedy, was son of Gilbert Kennedy, first Lord, by 
Katharine, daughter of Herbert Maxwell, first Lord Maxwell ; and Gilbert, 
first Lord Kennedy, was son of James Kennedy by the Princess Mary, 
daughter of Robert III.; son of Sir Gilbert Kennedy by Agnes Maxweli, 
daughter of Sir John Maxwell of Pollock by his wife Isobel Lindsay, 
daughter of Sir John Lindsay and Egidia, half sister of Robert II. Thus 
we see that the Mcln toshes are of several lin^ of Royal descent. 
^'* La chla n Mcintosh and Jean Gordon had : Wi lliam Mcintosh, who mar- 
ried Margaret daughter of Alexander Ogilvie of Cardell and Deskford, first

first Earl of AthoU, was son of Sir James Stewart, the Black Knight of Lorn, 
by Joanna, widow of King James I. and daughter of John,;Earl of Somerset, 
son of John.Duke of Lancaster, son of Edward IIL of England. Thus again 
we see the Mcintosh of Royal lineage. ^v^ 

^3 Lachlan_MoL-McIntosh and Agnes McKenzie had: Wil liam M cintosh,

markie, of Royal descent, and had:'Lachlan Mcintosh, who married 1636, 
Helen Gordon and had : ^Xvilliam Mcintosh, who married Mary, daughter

der Gordon of Lochinvaf "Fy Jean Kennedy, daughter of John, second Lord wx. » "^"^^ 
Kennedy; son of Gilbert, first Lord; son of James Kennedy by Princess "T^ i yj^ 
Mary, daughter of King Robert III. Thus through the Baillies of Dunain r ' 

and the Munros do the Mclntoshes again descend from the Royal line of 
Scotland. ^\ 

^^WiUiam Mcintosh and Mary Baillie had : Lachla n Mcintosh of Knock- 
nagael, who married Mary Lockhart, daughter of John Lockhart, Bailie of 
Inverness, and besides others had :^^Jo hn More Mc intosh who went to 
Georgia and lived and died there, leaving issue. (See " Baillie of Dunain.") 

John Mcintosh, third son, styled "of Lynvilulg," had : Donald, Lachlan, 
and John Mcintosh who also went to Georgia and had : William and Angus 
Mcintosh, and possibly others. 

MCINTOSH OF HOLME. 

Allan Mcintosh, third son of Malcolm Beg Mcintosh and his wife. Mora 
McDonald, married Janet Eraser, daughter of Hugh, third Lord Eraser ; son 
of Hugh Eraser who married Janet, daughter of Thomas Dunbar, Earl of 
Moray', descended from the Dunbars, Earls of Dunbar and March, of Royal 
lineage, as Thomas Randolph, Earl of Moray, whose daughter Isabella mar- 
ried Sir Patrick Dunbar, descended from Patrick, fifth Earl, by Ada, daugh- 
ter of King William I., " The Lion." 

Allan Mcintosh and Janet Eraser had : William Mor Mcintosh, who 
had Donald Mcintosh who married Katherine Rose and had : William 
Mcintosh, who had : Alexander Mcintosh of Holme who had Angus Mcin- 
tosh of Holme 1671, married Elizabeth Baillie and whose apparent descend- 
ant, John Mcintosh of Holme, 1724, married Janet Baillie. In Georgia we 
find John Mcintosh of Holme in 1735 as one of signers of Creek Treaty as 
a witness. 

The Mclntoshes of Holme have several other lines of Royal lineage, as 
follows : 

John McDonald, first Lord of the Isles, married Anne, heiress of the 
McRuaries, and had : Reginald or Ranald, first Chief,- descended from Prince 
Somerled who married a daughter of Walter Stewart, brother of King Rob- 

' Scot's Peerage thinks the marriage doubtful, but other authorities give 
it. Both Anderson, page 71, and McKenzie, page t58, in the Erasers, give 
Janet as having married Allan Mcintosh. 

*0f Clan Ranald and Glengarry. 



44 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HOUSTOUN FAMILY 

ert II. By this marriage there was: Mora McDonald (or McRanald), who 
married Malcolm Beg Mcintosh and had, among others : 
I. Lachlan Mcintosh of Mcintosh. 

UI. Allan Mcintosh, ancestor of Mcintosh of Holme, who married 
Janet Fraser and had : William Mor Mcintosh. 

Lachlan Mcintosh and Allan Mcintosh were grandsons of William Mcin- 
tosh by his second marriage, to Margaret, daughter of Roderick Mor McLeod 
of Lewis by Margaret McDonald, daughter of John, Lord of the Isles. (See 
McLeod History by McKenzie), 

William Mor Mcintosh had Donald Mcintosh, who married Katherine 
Rose, of Royal lineage, and thus as has been stated the line goes down to 
John Mcintosh of Holme, who went to Georgia. Through the Baillies these 
Mclntoshes would also be of Royal Lineage, as apparently Elizabeth and 
Jean were of the family of Baillie of Dunain. Through the McLeods, 
Mcintosh of Holme descended from Olave the Black, King of Man. At 
least four persons, branches of Mcintosh of Mcintosh, went to Georgia : 

1. Mcintosh of Borlum, whose line in America is Chief of Borlum. 

2. Mcintosh of Lynvilulg. 

3. Mcintosh of Holme. 

4. Mcintosh of Mala or Mallow. 

Note. — Besides several military officers, we find the following positions 
were held by the Johnstons during the Colonial period of Georgia : 

Hon. Lewis Johnston, Member of His Majesty's Council, March, 1779. 

Lewis Johnston, Chief Justice, Treasurer. 

Lewis Johnston, Jr., Provost Marshal, Dec. 27, 1781 ; and Postmaster, 
Savannah, Jan. 17, 1782. 

Errata. — On page 27, " n. George Houston, first of Johnstone" should 
be : II. George Houstoun, first of Johnstone. 

In footnotes, same page, " Burk's" should be : Burke's. 

Note. — ^There is a sUght discrepancy between the version of the family 
of Houstoun as given by Crawfurd and that stated on a chart furnished 
by James M. Johnston, Esq. In Crawfurd, Sir Patrick Houstoun is stated 
to have by Janet Cunningham of Craigends a son John who married a 
daughter of Sterling of Keir. In the Johnston chart it is stated that Sir 
Patrick of Colt married a daughter of Sterhng of Keir, who had a son John, 
father of Sir Ludovick ; whereas Crawfurd states that John who married 
daughter of Sterhng of Keir was the father of Sir Ludovick Houstoun. The 
only discrepancy then is that Sir Patrick of Colt, according to Crawfurd, 
was a brother of John instead of the father. Again, between Sir Ludo- 
vick and Sir Patrick, first Baronet, there is a son Patrick, died 1662 (Craw- 
furd), father of Sir Patrick, first Baronet, which would make the first Bar- 
onet a grandson of Sir Ludovick instead of son as stated in Johnston chart. 
The discrepancy is so slight as to be of very little moment and it is other- 
wise correct except that in first part of chart Sir Patrick, not Sir John his 
son, married Agnes Campbell, whose son John married Maria Calquohon. 
The descent from Cunningham of Craigends is not however aff"ected.

HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BOLTON FAMILY 45 



BOLTON 




BOLTON OF BOLTON. 

This ancient family, according to Dugdale, descended from 
the Saxon Earls of Mercia, who descended from the Saxon 
Kings. We finds the Boltons settled at the Brookhouse, Black- 
burn, Lancashire, where, says Fuller, the family had continued 
in good repute. 

The following is the direct line of Bolton\ the whole having

According to Dugdale and Bolton, &c., the Boltons descend 
from the Saxon Kings, through the Earls of Mercia, were Lords 
of Bolton and prominent citizens and Governors of Blackburn 
School. In America, they were citizens of prominence and con-

were early settlers in Pennsylvania and Georgia ; in the latter 
State prominent citizens, &.c. 

ASSHETON 

This ancient and prominent family had as its ancestor, Orme 
Fitz Edward, who married Emma, daughter of Albert de Cres- 
ley. Baron of Manchester, and had : 

I. Sir Thomas. 

II. Roger Fitz Orme, who had : 1 .Sir Thomas, Lord of Asshe-

John Byron and widow of Sir Edward Talbot. Besides Gilbert 
he had an elder son, Sir Robert Assheton, Vice Chamberlain to

ton, Knight of the Shire of Lancaster, 1385, who married Marga- 
ret, daughter of Perkyn de Legh of Lyme, and had : Sir John de 
Assheton who was drowned at Norham. He married a daugh- 
ter of Sir Robert Standish of Standish. There is n o record to . / 
show who this Sir Robert of Standish was the son of, but in 
taking a survey of the line we find that in 1384 there was a 
Robert de Standish, Sheriff of the same County, whose daughter 
\in point of time^must^haye been the one who married Sir John 
de Assheton. The hne of Standish as we find it would then be 
as follows : Thurston de Standish, 1221, married Marjorie, daugh- 
ter and co-heiress of Robert de Hulton, and had : Ralph de Stand- 
ish who had: Jardon de Standish, 1271, (married Margaret), 
grandfather of John de Standish, Lord of Standish 1332, who 
had: 

L William de Standish.

Henry de Standish,' the second son, had by his wife Joan 
issue, from whom descended Ralph de Standish, High Sheriff, 
who had an elder son Lawrence de Standish, who married in 
1398, Lora, daughter of Sir Roger de Pilkington, and had: Sir 
Alexander de Standish who was living in 1422, whose son. Sir 
Alexander de Standish, married Constance, daughter of John 
Gerard Bryn, and had : 

1. Ralph de Standish.

Margaret, daughter of Sir John Byron of Clayton, knighted by

48 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE ASSHETON FAMILY 

Henry VII. atBosworth, died 1448, and had: Sir Ralph Assheton, 
second son, first called of Middleton, paid homage to King 
Henry VL, was Knight Marshal of England, and in 1482 created 
a Knight Baronet. {^S v. •.x.-.^.^^^.-v t ^. 

He married Margaret, heiress of Middleton, daughter of John 
Barton of Middleton, and had : Sir Ralph Assheton, his second 
son, who married Margaret, heiress of Great Lever, daughter of 
Adam Lever of Great Lever, and had : Ralph Assheton of Great 
Lever, who married Eleanor Hulton, daughter of Adam Hulton 
of Hulton Park, of an ancient family, and had among others : 
Ralph Assheton, who married Margaret Orrell and had : Eleanor 
Assheton', who married William Bolton of Little Bolton and 
Blackburn, who died in 1553 ; Son of Robert Boulton of Boulton 
1487, who married Ann Rushton, daughter of Nicholas Rushton. 

We thus see that the ancient family of Bolton is descended 
from the distinguished family of Assheton and from the Stand- 
ishes who are connected to so many ancient lines, and from 
the Buckleys, Byrons, Hultons and others. 

Wilham BDlton and Eleanor Assheton* had: Adam Bolton of 
Blackburn 1539, whose son, Richard Bolton of Brookhouse 1543, 
had: Adam Bolton of the Brookhouse, died 1593, and had:

and had John Bolton, Parish Clerk, born 1615, died 1688, and 
had: John Bolton of Wales, Yorkshire, born 1658, died 1714, 
whose v/ife wns Ann, died circa 1714, and had : Robert Bolton, 
born 1688, died 1742, emigrated to Phildadelphia, Pa., 1718; 
married Ann Curtis, born 1690, married 1720, died 1747 ; widow 
of Robert Clay and daughter of Winlock Curtis and Ann 
Bowers, daughter of Benanuel Bowers and Elizabeth Dunster, 
cousin of Henry Dunster, first President of Harvard College.

IV. Mary Bolton, married Governor James Habersham. 

V. Rebecca Bolton, d. s. p. 
We thusjee the Bolton family descends from the families of 

ssheton, Byron, Lever, Hulton and many others, and of twice 
Royal lineage through the family of Barnake who married James 
Byron, and through the Hulton-Pilkington line. 

According to the "Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies," by 
Burke, Sir John Assheton married second, a daughter of Sir / 
John Byron named Mary — others call her Margaret, which 
Margaret is stated by " Stemmata Robertson et Durbin" to have 
ma rrie d twice : First Sir William Atherton ; second, Sir Maurice c 
Berkeley. She may have married a third time. Now Foster, ih 
his "Families of Lancashire," states that in order to correct cer- 
tain errors he has compiled these tables of Lancashire families, 
and he distinctly shows that Sir John Assheton miarried a 
,^^^1^ « second time^ daughter of John Byron of Clayton. 

^^^^.^^'''''^Sir John Assheton by his second m.arriage to Mary or Marga- 
ret Byron had, besides others : Sir Ralph Assheton, who married 
Margaret, daughter of John Barton of Middieton, and had : Ralph 
Assheton, his second son, who married Margaret, daughter of 
Adam Lever of Great Lever, and had : Ralph Assheton of Great 
Lever, who married Eleanor Hulton, daughter of Adam Hulton 
of Hulton Park, of an ancient family, and had : Ralph Assheton 
who married Margaret, daughter of William Orrell ' of Turton 
Tower, and had, besides others : Eleanor Assheton (Foster's 
History of Families of Lancashire). Now according to the Har- 
leian MSS., referred to in the Memoirs of the Bolton Family, page 
104, it is stated that Eleanor Assheton was the daughter of Ralph, 
son of Richard, which is a mistake, as Ralph Assheton was the 
brother of Richard and these were sons of Ralph Assheton, Lord 
of Great Lever. Now Ejeanor Assheton was unquestiqnabl^y the 
daug hter of one of the Ralph Asshetons descended of the Byron 
marriage, and although Foster does not give the marriage the au- 
thor of this art icle has assigned to Eleanor Assheton, the daugh- 
:er of Ralph' Assheton and Margaret Orrell, as the Eleanor who 
married William Bolton, which 'jn point of dates Would be the 
Eleanor Assheton referred to in Harleian MSS. There may have 

Foster's Charts of Lancashire Families.

52 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE ASSHETON FAMILY 

been an Eleanor prior to this one, but the main point to be con- 
sidered is that an Eleanor Assheton descended from Ralph 
Assheton (and Margaret Lever), son of Sir Ralph Assheton (and 
Margaret Barton), son of Sir John Assheton by second marriage 
to Mary or Margaret Byron, daughter of John Byron, Esq., of 
Clayton, County Lancaster, England. Thus then do we see that 
the Bolton family who went first to Philadelphia, Pa., and then 
to Georgia and Maryland, was of Royal hneage. Many are the 
descendants of this ancient family whose lines from Bolton can 
be easily deduced. 

Note. — ' Foster mentions an Eleanor Assheton, daughter of Ralph 
Assheton and Margaret Orrell, but not her marriage ; but The Karleian 
MSS. states that an Eleanor Assheton married William Bolton and proves 
descent from Adam de Lever of Great Lever. See Foster's Genealogical 
Charts of Lancashire Families, Burke's Commoners, Memoirs of Bolton 
Family by Reginald and H. Carrington Bolton, Burke's Extinct Baronage, 
for Tateshall, Robertson et Durbin families, and records of Dr. J. McL. 
McBryde. 

In Foster's account of Hulton family there is a marriage of a Hulton 
to Elizabeth Pilkington, undoubtedly descended from the Earl of Warren 
of Royal lineage. 

Note.— The Bolton Book, by Dr. H. Carrington Bolton and Reginald 
Bolton, quotes from the Harleian Manuscript, see page 104, the marriage 
of Wiliam Bolton to Eleanor Assheton. These gentlemen, after the pub- 
lication of the Memoirs of Bolton by Rev. Robert Bolton, decided to 
look further into the records and republish the work on Bolton. " The 
Stemmata Robertson et Durbin," in the Library of Congress, is a wonderful 
record and gives many families who are of Royal lineage, among v/hom 
we find the family of de Tateshall, descended from the Albini family, hence 
from Charlemagne. This chart shows the marriage of a daughter of de 
Tateshall to Dryby, and thence to Barnake or Bernack to a daughter of 
the latter to Sir James Byron and also states the Byron lineage. See slso 
Sharpe's Peerage and McBryde Chart, Burke's Commoners, Extinct Baron- 
age, Peerage, &c., Habersham and Other Southern Families by Bulloch, 
and charts of the families of Assheton, Hulton of Hulton Park, and others 
in Charts of the Counties of Lancashire and Yorkshire by Foster. 

It is here proper to state that Burke, under Assheton, states that Sir 
Thomas Assheton, eldest son of Sir John Assheton by his first marriage, 
married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Byron, and that Sir John Asshe- 
ton married a second time a daughter of Sir John Byron of Clayton, and 
continues the junior line from this marriage ; and also that Foster states 
in his preface that he desires to correct certain errors and does so in bis 



HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BYRON FAMILY 53 

history or charts of Larcashire. He also gives Sir Thomas Assheton as 
having married Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John Byron of Clayton, and 
says also that Sir John Assheton married second a daughter of John By- 
ron, Esq., of Clayton, County Lancashire. Stemmata Robertson et Durbin 
only gives the marriage of Sir Thomas Assheton to Elizabeth, daughter of 
Sir John Byron of Clayton, and does not give the marriage of Sir John 
Assheton to a daughter of Sir John Byron. Other authorities settle this 
point and show a positive descent. See further back. 



BYRON 

The ancestor' of this ancient line was Ralph du Burura, Burun, 
Biron, or Byron, of Horstan Castle, Uving in 1086, who was the 
possessor of several Lordships, and from whom Lord Byron, the 
famous poet, descends. His son Hugh du Burun, Lord of Hors- 
tan Castle, County Derby, had a son Hugh du Burun, Lord of 
Horstan Castle, temp. Henry IL, and he had a son, Sir Roger or 
Ralph de Burun, living 1216, who married Nicola de Verdon, 
daughter of Roland de Verdon, and had Robert de Byron (the 
name appears to have at this time been changed to Byron), who 
married Cecelia Clayton, an heiress, daughter of Theirass, son of 
Richard Clayton of Clayton, County Lancaster. By this mar- 
riage Robert de Byron had : Robert de Byron, Lord of Clayton, 
living 1189, who married Maud, living 1292, and had: John de 
Byron, Lord of Clayton, Governor of York, who obtained Roch- 
dale by marriage. He was living 1295 ; married Jean or Joan, 
living 1300, heiress of Rochdale, stated to be the widow of Sir 
Robert Holland and daughter of Sir Baldwin Thias or Sir Bald- 
win Teutonicus or de Tyas, and had Sir John de Byron, Lord of 
Clayton, living 1318, who married Alice Banastre, cousin and 
heiress of Robert Banastre of Hyndelay, County Lancaster, and 
had : Sir Richard de Byron, M. P., Lord of Clayton and Codenay,

HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HULTON FAMILY 55 



HULTON OF HUl-TON PARK 

This ancient family' of the County of Lancashire, England, is 
found at an early date and may be considered one of the best 
of the old landed gentry of England, embracing amongst its 
alliances many families of standing, such as the Blackburns, 
Radclyffes of Radclyffe Tower, Levers, Leghs, Harringtons, Pilk- 
ingtons and others. The interest in the family centers in the 
fact of its connection with the family of Assheton, through 
which descends the family of Bolton of Georgia and through 
which descend branches of the families of Habersham, King, 
Colquitt, Bulloch, Adams, McBryde, Newell, Turner and others. 

The first of this ancient name was Blethyn de Hulton, County 
Lancaster, temp. Henry II., who had Jarvith or Yarwrit, who 
had Richard, whose son was David de Hulton, senior Lord of 
Hulton, who married Agnes de Blackburn, daughter of Adam, 
son of Henry de Blackburn, and had : 

I. Richard de Hulton of Hulton Park, temp. Edward I.; 
married Margeria, daughter of Robert de Radclyffe of Radclyffe 
Tower, son of Adam de Radclyffe by a daughter of Alan Cul- 
wen Vel Curwen of Camerton ; son of Wilham de Radclyffe of 
Radclyffe Tower by Ceceha de Montbegon, Lady of Kirkland. 

II. John de Hulton, who married Joan, daughter of Richard 
de Mancester. 

We will subsequently show that these two lines come together 
several times, and will proceed to give the elder line first. 

Richard de Hulton and Margeria de Radclyffe had : 

1. Adam de Hulton, who married Avicia, daughter of 

Alicia de Eccles, and had : 

1. Roger de Hulton, who married Alyne, daughter of 

Adam de Lever of Great Lever, who had married 

Agnes Hulton, daughter of Henry de Hulton by 

Agnes, daughter of Thomas Bowden of Bowden. 

'We only give the lines which affect the descent of these families which 
descend from the line, as there were many other children of the family.

of the house, his mother, Agnes Legh, having married second, 
William Venables, the second son of Sir William Venables, Baron 
of Kinderton. Agnes Legh was the daughter of Richard de 
Legh, descendant of William de Legh of Westhall, son of Hamon, 
Lord of Mediety or Medieiy.

dois, daughter of Hugh the Great, Count of Vermandois. From 
Sir Thomas Pilkington descended Sir Thomas, who had Sir 
James. As this is the only family of Pilkington, Elizabeth

The Family of Legh or Leigh of Adlington and Lyme. 

Hamon, Lord of the Mediety of High Leigh,' temp Henry II., 
was fatherof William de Legh of West Hall in High Lee, who had 
Richard de Legh, whose daughter Alice by a second marriage to 
WilUam Venables of Bradweii, second son of Sir William Ven- 
ables of Bradweii, Baron of Kinderton, had John, who assumed 
the name of Legh and was proprietor of Xnutsford Booth. John 
Legh by a first marriage had a son. Sir John Legh. John Legh 
of Knutsford married, second, Ellen, daughter of Robert Dent of 
Cheshire ; but according to The History of the Commoners he 
married a daughter of Thomas De Corona, by whom he had : Robert 
De Leigh of Adlington, who married, according to one author- 
ity, Sibil, daughter of Henry Hanford of Hanford ; but according 
to The History of the Commoners by Burke, he married Matilda, 
daughter of Adam De Norlay, and had : 

I. Sir Robert Leigh of Adlington. 

II. Sir Peter Leigh, of Maxfield and Lyme. 

Sir Robert Leigh of Adhngton married Matilda, daughter of 
Sir John De Ardern of Alford and Alvody, and had a son, Rob- 
ert Leigh of Adlington. 

Sir Peter Leigh of Lyme married Margaret, widow of Sir John 
Savage of Clifton, Knight, and daughter of Sir Thomas Danvers, 

' See pages under Legh and Leigh, vols. 2 and 3, Burke's Commoners 
and Extinct Peerages. 



60 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HULTON FAMILY 

Knight of Bradlej', and had: Sir Peter Leigh, Knight Banneret, 
who married Joan, daughter of Sir Giidert Haydock, Knight, and 
had : Sir Peter Legh, Knight, who married Margaret, daughter 
of Sir Richard Moiyneux. 

As there was a marriage of Assheton to a daughter of Parkyn 
De Leigh of Lyme mentioiied by Foster, and as tiiere was a 
marriage of a Hulton to a Legh of Adhngt04i by same author, 
but as neither he nor Burke gives the parentage of either, nor 
the marriages, we consider the descent of Assheton from one 
of the three lines of Lyme, and the descent of the Hulton-Leigh 
marriage from either the first or third Robert Leigh of Adiington. 



THE ROYAL LINEAGE 

of branches of th© families of Bolton, Adams, Habersham, 

l^inor, Bulloch, Colquitt, Newell and others, from 

Charlemag-no the Great, throug-h the fanniiles 

of Byron, Hulton, Barnake or BerxA^ake, 

Dryby, and de Tateshali. 

Charlemagne or Charles the Great married Heldegrade of Sua- 
bia and had: Louis the Pious, who married Judith of Altorp 
and had : Charles the Bold, who married Hermentrude of Or- 
leans and had : Louis III Baldus, who married Adeheia and had : 
Charles IV. of France, who married Edgiva of England and had : 
Louis IV., who married Gerberga of Germany and had : Charles, 

Duke of Lorraine, who married and had : Gerberga, 

heiress of the House of Charlemagne, who married Lambert, 
Duke of Brabant, and had : Lambert II., Duke of Brabant, who 
married Oda of Lorraine, daughter of Gothello, Duke of Lor- 
raine, by Urica, daughter of Brengius, King of Italy. 

From this marriage we find Henry IL, Duke of Brabant, who 
married Adela of Thuringia and had : Godfrey Barbatus, Duke 
of Brabant, who married Ida de Namur and had : I. Adelysa, who 
married, first, Henry L, King of England, without issue. She 
married second, William de Albini, Earl of Arundel and in right 
of wife Earl of Sussex ; son of WiUiam de Albini and Maud 

Bigod ; son of Roger de Albini by Mowbray, sister of 

De Mowbray, Earl of Northumberland. 



HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HULTON FAMILY 61 

William de Albini and Adelysa of Lorraine had : William de 
Albini, second Ead of Arundel, who married Ales, daughter of 
Alexander L, King of Scotland, and had: William de Albini, 
third Earl of Arundel, who married Maud, daiighier of James 
de St. Hilary. She married second, Roger de Clare, Earl of Pem- 
broke. William, de Albini, third Earl of Arundel, and Maud de 
St. Hilary had : 

I. Mabel de Albini, who married Sir Robert de Tateshall 
and had : I. Sir Robert de Tateshall, who had : Jane de Tate- 
shall,' who married Sir Robert Dryby and had : Ales Dryby, who 
married Sir William Earnake or Bernake and had : I. Elizabeth 
Bernake, who married Sir James Byron and had a son. Sir 
Richard Byron, who married Joan de Colewick, daughter of Wil- 
liam de Colewick, and had: Sir John Byron of Clayton, who 
married Margaret Booth and had, besides others : Elizabeth By- 
ron, who married Sir Thomas Assheton, son of Sir John Asshe- 
ton by his first marriage to Jane Seville, and thus carried on 
the eldest line of Assheton. 

According to the "Extinct and Dormant Baronetcies," by 
Burke, Sir John Assheton married second, a daughter of Sir 
John Byron named Mary — others call her Margaret, which Mar- 
garet is stated by " Stemmata Robertson et Durbin" to have 
married twice : first, Sir William Atherton ; second, Sir Maurice 
Berkley. She may have married a third time. Now Foster, in 
his " Families of Lancashire,^ states tliat m order to correct cer- 
tain errors he has compiled these tables of Lancashire families. 
and he distinctly shows that Sir John Assheton married a 
second time a daughter of John Byron of Clayton. 

Sir John Assheton by his second marriage to Mary or Marga- 
ret Byron had, besides others : Sir Ralph Assheton, who married 
Margaret, daughter of John Barton of Middieton, and had : Ralph 
Assheton, his second son, who married Margaret, daughter of 
Adam Lever of Great Lever, and had : Ralph Assheton of Great 
Lever, who married Eleanor Hulton, daughter of Adam Hulton 
of Hulton Park, of an ancient family, and had; Ralph Assheton, 
who married Margaret, daughter of William Orrell' of Turton 

^ See Stemmata Robertson et Durbin, and Burke's Extinct Baronages.

62 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE HLiLTON FAMILY 

Tower, and had, besides others: Eleanor Assheton (Foster's 
History of Families of Lancashire). Now according to the Har- 
leian MSS. referred to in the Memoirs of the Bolton Family, page 
104, it is stated that Eleanor Assheton was the daughter of Ralph, 
son of Richard, which is a mistake, as Ralph Assheton was the 
brother of Richard and these were sons of Ralph Assheton, Lord 
of Great Lever. TNow Eleanor Assheton was unquestionably the 
daughter of one of the ^Tph Asshetons descended of the Byron 
marriage, and although Foster does not give the marriage ^the au- 
thor of this article has assigned to Eleanor Assheton, the daugh- 
ter of Ralph' Assheton and Margaret Orreli as the Eleanor who 
married William Bolton, which in point of dates would be the 
Eleanor Assheton referred to in Harleian MSS. There may have 
been an Eleanor prior to this one, but the main point to be con- 
sidered is that an Eleanor Assheton descended from Ralph 
Assheton (and Margaret Lever), son of Sir Ralph Assheton (and 
Margaret Barton), son of Sir John Assheton by second marriage 
to Mary or Margaret Byron, daughter of John Byron, Esq., of 
Clayton, County Lancaster, England. Thus then do we see that 
the Bolton family who went first to Philadelphia, Pa., and then 
to Georgia and Maryland, was of Royal lineage. Many are the 
descendants of this ancient family whose lines from Bolton can 
be easily deduced.

Note.— This information was furnished the author by Mrs. Bayard 
Stockton, of Morven, Pi-inceton, New Jersey, a descendant of the Bayard 
family. The Stocktons of Princeton, N. J., besides also this honorable 
descent, descend from the Potter family, and through it from Fuller and 
Drayton of South Carolina, See Family of Fuller in Family of Cuthbert of 
Castle Hill, by the author. See Bulloch Family for descent of branch oi 
Potter from Glen, NoWe Jones and Grimes. See also Family of Stockton..

DE VE AUX— FOULKE 

Andr^ De Veaux\ the Huguenot, is found in South Carolina as early 
as 1714, and it is said that he came of a family resident in Brittany. In 
1754 he made his will as Andr^ De Veaux, gentleman, leaving to his 
sons, Andrew, James and John De Veaux, and grandson Jacob, son of 
Israel De Veaux, &c. 

From Honorable Colonel James De Veaux the Bulloch family of 
Georgia descend, as also a branch of Roosevelt through Bulloch, from 
whom the late ex-President, Col. Theodore Roosevelt descended. From 
Andrew De Veaux, son of Andr6, the families of Fouike and others of 
Philadelphia, Pa., descend, 

Andrew De Veaux, second, married Hannah, daughter of the gallant 
Col. John Palmer, who was on the Oglethorpe expedition in 1740 against 
the Spaniards. He married Elizabeth Bellinger, daughter of Edmund 
Bellinger, first landgrave of the name in South Carolina. 

Andrew De Veaux and Hannah Palmer had : Andrew De Veaux, 
third, who married Catharine Barnwell, daughter of John, son of Col, 
John Barnwell, who was a very prominent citizen of South Carolina, Sec- 
retary of the Province 1702 and Member of the Council, and commander 
of the expedition against the Tuscaroras in 1712. His wife was Ann 
Berners. 

Andrew De Veaux and Catharine Barnwell had : 
I. Col. Andrew De Veaux, who married Ann Maria Verplanck and 
had:

HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BAYARD FAMILY 71 

1. Julia De Veaux, married Col. John Hare-Powel. 

2. Augusta De Veaux, married Philip Verplanck. 

Col. John Hare Powel, of Powelton (now part of Philadelphia, Pa.), 
assumed the name of Powel by act of the Legislature. He was the son of 
Robert and Margaret (Willing) Hare, of Philadelphia, Pa., and grandson 
of Richard and Martha Harford Hare, of Limehouse (now a part of Lon- 
don. England), and also maternally grandson of Charles and Ann (Ship- 
pen) Willing, of Philadelphia, Pa. 

Col. John Hare Powel and Julia De Veaux had, among others: Juha 
De Veaux Powel, who married WiUiam Parker Foulke and had, among 
others, George Rhyfedd Foulke, who married Jean Du Val Leiper Kane 
and had issue. 

DU PONT 

As a branch of the family of Foulke descends from the Bayard fam- 
ily.and as a branch of the ancient family of du Pont of Delaware descends 
from Bayard, Foulke and De Veaux, we have inserted in its appropriate 
place the descent of those lines. 

As the du Fonts of South Carolina belong to one of the various lines 
of du Pont, we herewith insert a short account of the South Carolina 
family, as given the author by Coleman du Pont, Esq., of Wilmington. 
Delaware, but arranged in different form, 

Jean du Pont, born in France in 1631, a\id died 1710; married, Sep- 
tember 17, 1656, Marie du Bosc, who was born June 6, 1632, and died 
March 5, 1676. Their son, Abraham du Pont', was born atRouen, France, 
December 3, 1658, and went to London 1681, where he became natural- 
ized as a British subject April 15, 1693. He emigrated to America about 
1694, and went to South Carolina about 1695-6, and died in St. James 
Parish, Goose Creek, about 1720. 

He married, June 3, 1697, at Charleston, S. C. Ann Faucheraud. born 
at Port des Barques, France, in 1678. She was the daughter of Charles 
Faucheraud and Ann Vignaud. 

Abraham du Pont and Ann Faucheraud had : 
I. Anne du Pont, born in St. James Parish, Goose Creek, in 1709 ; 
married Daniel Deane. 

DUNWODY 
Dr. James Dunwody went to Georgia about 1770 and was one of 
the first physicians to practice medicine in Liberty County, Ga.. then St. 
Johns Parish. He became a member of the first Executive Council of 
Georgia during the time of the Revolutionary War. He married Mrs. Es- 
ther Splatt, nee Deane, daughter of Abraham Deane*, born 1704, and 
Ann du Pont, and had : 

^ Information of Coleman du Pont. 

"^ See pages 153 and 154, Habersham Book, in which he is called Abra- 
ham Deane ; and Daniel Daane by the du Pont Chart. 



72 HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BAYARD FAMILY 

I. Col. James Dunwody, married Elizabeth West Smith and had 

issue. 

II. John Dunwody, married, June 7, 1808, Jane Bulloch and had 

issue. 

III. Esther Dunwody, married Senator John Elliott and had : 

I. Hester A. Elliott, married Major James Stephen Bulloch, his 
first wife. 



2^TOTES. 

Pages 12 and 23- It has now been definitely determined that the 
descent of the Balthazer Bayard who married Mary Bowdoin is as follows : 

Balthazer Bayard, who married Mary Lockermans, had, among others: 
Jacobus Bayard, who married Hillegond de Kay and had : Balthazer 
Bayard, who married Mary, daughter of Pierre Bowdoin, and was the an- 
cestor of the St. Clairs and others. 

We have been unable to get the line of Richard Henry Bayard, who 
married a Miss Carroll, of Maryland ; but among the grandchildren we 
find Richard Henry Bayard and Ellen Howard Bayard, of Baltimore, 
Maryland, whose mother was Ellen Howard, who as we see descended 
from the Carroll and Howard families, and others mentioned in this work. 

The Royal descent of Alexander as given on page 21 is more in con- 
formity with the descent of Alexander from McDonald than that on page 
19. Omit on page 19 lines 11 aud 12 from the top and consider that 
Alexander, number III, son of Donald McDonald, as the progenitor of 
Alexander of Menstry. 

According to one version of the descent of Bayard, as furnished by a 
member of the family, the line would be as follows from the Rev. Nicholas 
Bayard : Lazare Bayard married Judith Beyers and had : Samuel Bayard, 
born 1610; married, 1638. Ann Stuyvesant and had the issue as given. 
Lazare Bayard is also stated to have married Judith de Vos. H« may 
have married her as second wife, although it is also stated that Rev. 
Balthazer Bayard married Judith de Vos. It therefore appears most 
probable that the line of descent as given on page 2 is the correct one ; 
and that the name of Balthazer came into the family through Rev. Bal- 
thazer Stuyvesant, whose daughter Ann married Samuel Bayard. Hence 
we deduce the descent of the line as follows : 

Rev. Nicholas Bayard, a pastor of a church in Holland, had : Lazare 
Bayard, married Judith Beyers, whose son (possibly grandson) Samuel 
married Ann. daughter of Rev. Balthazer Stuyvesant, and had those 
already stated. 

It is interesting to note that a branch of Foulke and du Pont descended 
not only from the Bayard and the Kane families, but through the Hare- 



HISTORY AND GENEALOGY OF THE BAYARD FAMILY 73 

Powels from Col. Andrew De Veaux, son of Andrew De Veaux and Cath- 
arine Barnwell ; son of Andrew De Veaux and Hannah Palmer, daughter 
of Col. John Palmer and Elizabeth, daughter of Landgrave Edmund Bel- 
linger, one of the Colonial nobility of South Carolina. The last Andrew 
De Veaux was son of Andr6 De Veaux, the Huguenot, who was in South 
Carolina in 1714, 

It is also pleasant to note that Doctor James Dunwody, who was one 
of the earliest practitioners in Georgia, and of the first Executive Council 
in 1775-6, married Esther Splatt, widow, daughter of Abraham or Daniel 
Deane, born 1704, who married Ann Dupont. There was a Gideon Du- 
pont who was church warden of St. James, Goose Creek, 1746. As the 
South Carolina Du Ponts were remotely related to the Delaware line, they 
both came evidently from the noble line of du Pont. The late distin- 
guished James Dunwody Bulloch, C. S. Agent abroad, descended from 
the Elliotts, Dunwodys and Duponts. 

Windebanke, in St. Martins in the Fields. Sir Thomas Windebanke 
married Frances, daughter of Sir Edward Dymoke, and had. among others : 
Mildred, who married Robert Reade of Faccomb (page 123. Middlesex 
Pedigrees, Harleian Publications). See in Preface, article in relation to 
Reade. 

The author takes the pleasure of thanking Thomas F. Bayard, of 
Wilmington, Del. ; Miss Constance Bayard, of Dauphin. Pa.; Miss Florence 
Bayard Kane. John Kent Kane, Mrs. LaFarge and others for aid furnished 
in getting up the later records of this distinguished line of Bayard of 
Pennsylvania and Delaware.
