201 Died aged 11 months. Johnson, Phillip Hugh (I0583)
202 Died aged 42, of Gringley on the Hill, Nottinghamshire (FMG, Vol 4, p1229)

Given he married in 1726 he was probably born around 1700-1705. As he died aged 42 he must have died sometime between 1742 and 1747.

There are four burials in Gringley during this period, one in 1742, one in 1743, one in 1744 and one in 1746

  1. Bishop's Transcript: Buried 5 Mar 1742, son of Roger & Sarah Fretwell [suggests this may have been a child]
  2. Nottinghamshire Burial Index: Buried 4 Mary 1743, at SS Peter & Paul, son of Roger & Sarah [same as above?]
  3. Bishop's Transcript: Buried 15 Sep 1744, at SS Peter & Paul, noted as Robert junior
  4. Bishop's Transcript: Buried 14 Jun 1746, at SS Peter & Paul

The most likely seems to be the last one

208 Died very young.

Confusingly, there's a Findagrave entry ( which includes a document showing that Elizabeth was buried on the 27th of May 1779, which contradicts the other burial record from FamilySearch.

217 Edward went out to work with his uncle Edward Mayne in Lisbon where his father James also had business. Edward had 3 sons & 2 daughters who survived to adulthood but none had children. His daughter Martha married Sir John Skinner, Chief Baron of the Exchequer, in 1777.  Burn, Edward (I1343)
218 Eldest daughter of John Stewart, first Earl of Lennox (Stewart line) Stewart, Elisabeth (I1849)
219 Eldest daughter. Keith, Agnes (I1840)
220 Eldest son of Sir James Stewart (Lord Doune, created 1581). Known in posterity as the "bonnie Earl", perhaps because he was both tall and handsome. He assumed the Earldom of Moray on marriage to Elizabeth Stewart (2nd Countess of Moray), having "obtained a gift from King James VI of the ward and marriage of the two daughters of the Regent Moray"1, 2nd source.

Started a family feud with the 6th Earl (later 1st Marquess) of Huntly, George Gordon, around the end of 1590, by whom he was murdered on the 7th of February 1591/2, when he was alone in the house bar a few servants and Dnbar, Sheriff of Moray. Per [1]:
The house was set on fire, and Dunbar in rushing out was instantly killed. Moray himself succeeded in reaching the seashore, and might have escaped had not a silken tassel on his cap caught fire and betrayed him to the enemy. He was slaughtered under circumstances of extreme barbarity, and the news which reached Edinburgh next day excited the utmost popular indignation. The tale of the murder has often been told, and its memory is enshrined in a ballad which is still one of the best known of its class. He was under twenty-five years of age at the time of his death.

The ballad is "The Bonnie Earl of Moray".

If he was indeed under 25, then his year of birth must have been 1567.

Stewart, James (2nd Lord Doune) (I1790)
221 Emilia's marriage record describes her as the daughter of Archibald Stewart, brother to the Earl of Murray [Moray].
The History of Antigua1 says "dau. of Archibald, son of James, 3rd Earl of Moray, a descendent of James, King of Scotland". Misc Gen2 refers to her father as "Hon. Archibald Stuart of Dunearn, son of James, 4th Earl of Moray".

It is through Emilia that a lot of links open up back to Scottish and English royalty. Through the Stewart line (Earls of Moray and Lords Doune) you get to King James V of Scotland and ultimately to Henry VII of England. Though Emilia's mother Anna Henderson you get to Robert II of Scotland and many old Baronial families. And lots of intermarriage.

I've been unable to find a birth record, nor a death record, for Emilia. Her birth was most likely between 1673 and 1680 (to make her younger than her husband but still at least 21 at time of marriage). Her death was likely between 1712 (birth of her youngest son with a recorded date of birth, Robert) and 1760ish.

226 Findagrave gives his death as the 15th, but the Probate Register gives the 16th which is what I'm taking as the truth.

237 From F_Unknown_SophiaLonsdale_Reminiscences:

Our cousin Bollands [i.e. the children of Elizabeth Joanna Bolland] were somewhat similarly treated with us and lived at a house near Eton called Willowbrook. We generally spent our half holidays together acting plays with nurse and governess, and the boys went to the school where I believe my brother Jem helped them with their verses.
The Bolland brothers, Henry, William and John were handsome and very agreeable but not I suppose really scholarly. I think all Bollands talked above their abilities. John and I were great friends. When I was quite a little girl I remember the charwoman, who came to the Wharf, and to Willowbrook, stopping in her scrubbing to say, “Master Jonny Bolland told me to say, will you marry him when you are ninety-nine, and he is a hundred?”. Poor John Bolland! He did not live to be nearly half a hundred, but died in the desert.
These Bollands were the children of my mother’s sister, who married after an eleven year’s engagement, her cousin, another grandchild of the Masham shopkeeper. He became a judge, and I remember my Uncle Baron Bolland, a handsome old gentleman, predicting the ruin of England owing to the first Reform Bill.
Bolland, Elizabeth Joanna (I1559)
238 From F_Unknown_SophiaLonsdale_Reminiscences:
My Mother’s sister, Fanny, who came between the three eldest (Mrs Field, Lady Bolland and Mrs Oakeley), was married to Colonel, afterwards General, Fyers. She was neither so beautiful, nor so clever as her sisters, but was a kindly affectionate, honest woman. She knew her husband was not rich. After her marriage she found he had debts, and she stinted and pinched till the debts were paid. Perhaps out of her virtue was left a little drag of overthought of money. And then she was not clever like the others, who never let anyone detect a lack of education in them, although I have heard my mother, when she lived among my father’s literary and learned friends, say she wished a thousand pounds of her fortune had been spent on her education. There was a story that my Aunt Fyers, when taken on board a sailing vessel, asked the Captain if he sailed all night. Perhaps the story was made up.

She had two sons Henry and William, both Colonels, and she had one daughter still alive. She was devoted to Henry, and he to her, but her fondness interfered with this profession, which at last he gave up to please her. She mollycoddled him. Once he had to march with his men in comfortable England. She drove to meet him with sandwiches on the way. I believe he was one of the best of men, the sort of man who would take the blanket off his bed for a poor person. He must have been very handsome before he got the small pox from visiting his men in hospital but indeed he had a beautiful face with a beautiful countenance in his old age. Gentle as he was I am sorry to say I once made him angry by repeating what I had heard that the volunteers, of whom he was Colonel, had had a bad effect upon the inhabitants of Chester. He said indignantly, “Chester is a wicked place, and it had a bad effect upon my men”.

William who was knighted towards the end of his life, was doubtless as brave as brave could be, but in smaller matters than danger to life he was a bit selfish, unlike his brother Henry who thought of anyone’s comfort rather than his own. William went to the Crimean War with a Doctor’s certificate that he was to have meat three times a day. He was sitting quite unconsciously on a high gate with shots going on all round him, too indolent to move. It was one of his troubles that he had never been wounded. I believe he was one of the first men to enter the Redan. He had a nice kind wife and left two sons. Good Henry was never married. He said “Once can’t help being born, and one can’t help dying, but there’s no need to do the middle thing”.

Bolland, Frances (I1560)
239 From F_Unknown_SophiaLonsdale_Reminiscences:
One of my mother’s eldest sisters married a Shropshire Squire and Parson, Mr or Dr Oakeley of Oakeley near Bishopscastle. There was a family living. She had ten children most of them handsome and most of them more or less wild. My mother said she spoilt them in proportion to their beauty, and certainly some of the handsomest of the six sons turned out black sheep, and a plain one turned out respectable. The eldest daughter Kate, and the youngest Sophy (Toto) were beautiful women. My mother took Kate driving with her in London, she got out at a shop leaving Kate in the carriage. When she returned she found a little crowd around it, and wondered till she saw Kate smile as accustomed to draw a crowd. She married an elderly Squire, Mr Barton of Longnor. I believe her son, or grandson, is now the Squire and married to a daughter of Toto’s.

We did not see much of any of the Oakeley cousins except this Toto, who was my mother’s godchild. I should think the family at Oakeley must have been of the sort of uncultured country-bumpkin squirearchy who are quizzed by the London fashionables in the old plays. Shropshire may have been a generation behindhand. They would not be much in my mother’s time. She told me how she sat with her nephews (I suppose nearly as old as herself) and found nothing to talk about, when after a long silence, one burst out with “To be sure I’m vastly fond o’ killing o’ rats”. But my mother had Toto, who was a great deal younger to stay with us often.
Bolland, Catharina (I1650)
240 From F_Unknown_SophiaLonsdale_Reminiscences:
She married an elderly Squire, Mr Barton of Longnor. I believe her son [Robert Lingen Burton], or grandson, is now the Squire and married to a daughter of Toto’s [her sister Sophia's daughter Catherine Sophia Cleaveland].

241 From Hereford Journal, 7th February 1798, page 3:
"On Monday se'nnight died, suddenly, whilst eating his dinner, Mr Lawrence Stephens of Cotmore, near Kington, in this county. He was a gentleman of so great respectability in his neighbourhood, and of such strict integrity in all his dealings, that his loss will be long deplored by his family and acquaintance. His Estate, called the Heath, in the parish of Lyonshall, it is said, goes to the Rev. Jon Powell, of Cabalva, Radnorshire, by virtue of the will of the late Mrs Elizabeth Dale, formerly of the Heath."
Stephens, Lawrence (I1641)
242 From History of Parliament Online:
Bolland, described as being of St. Lawrence Poultney, London at his marriage, was a hop merchant, listed at 106 Upper Thames Street in 1791 and later at Mark Lane. In 1796 he acted as London agent for his wife’s uncle George Gipps* in the Canterbury election. He was a subscriber to the loyalty loan for 1797. He himself did not come into Parliament until he was 72. He was a paying guest of William Kenrick, who had offered the vacancy to the prime minister; but Bolland was not Lord Liverpool’s choice and his conduct suggests that he made his own bargain, unless it was influenced by his patron’s sale of the borough or by the post-war crisis.

Though a silent Member, he opposed agricultural protection, 27 Feb., 1 and 3 Mar., and the East India Company pension to Lord Melville, 24 May 1815. He voted for retrenchment, 11 and 18 Mar., and after pairing for it on 20 Mar., again on 3 and 25 Apr. 1816. He was in the civil list minorities, 6 and 24 May. Though absent on 12 June, he authorized The Times to state that he would have voted with the opposition majority on the Rochester writ,3 and he was in the minorities of 14 and 20 June on public revenue questions. He was in the minorities on the composition of the finance committee, 7 Feb. and Admiralty retrenchment, 17 and 25 Feb., and against the salt duties, 25 Apr. 1817. He voted against Catholic relief, 9 May. He paired with ministers for the suspension of habeas corpus, 23 June 1817, and voted against censure of their use of informers against sedition, 5 Mar. 1818; but on 15 Apr. he was in the opposition majority on the ducal marriage grant and he opposed the continued restriction of cash payments by the Bank, 18 May. He voted for inquiry into popular education on Brougham’s motion, 3 June.

Bolland did not seek re-election in 1818. That year he presented his son to the living of Fetcham, Surrey, the advowson of which he had purchased. He retired from business about 1825 and died at Clapham 7 June 1829, aged 87.

They had six daughters and one son.

Col Anthony Gylby was the first lessee [of Sunk Island] from 1668, he was Lieutenant of Hull Fort and an ardent Cavalier who died under something of a cloud accused of misappropriation of the fort's materials for use on his solitary island mansion.

From History of Parliament Online (

Gilby, descended from a minor Lincolnshire gentry family, acquired a modest leasehold estate in Nottinghamshire by marrying an heiress. An active Royalist, he served under Lord Belasyse in the Newark garrison and signed the articles of surrender in 1646. In the second Civil War he was again in arms in the garrison of Pontefract, compounding on a nominal fine of £25 in 1650. Described by the local major-general as ‘a dangerous enemy’, he was imprisoned for complicity in the projected rising of 1655. By January 1660 he was in London, attempting to enlist Presbyterian support for the Restoration.

Gilby was returned in 1661 for Hull, where he was deputy to Belasyse, the governor. Although inactive in debate, and only once a teller, he was appointed to 170 committees, and, with his colleague Andrew Marvell, kept his constituents regularly informed of developments in the House. He served on the committee of 26 Nov. 1661 on the bill for the execution of those under attainder. In 1663 he helped to consider a petition from the loyal and indigent officers, and a bill to hinder the growth of Popery. He was listed as a court dependant in 1664. During the second Dutch war he took effective measures against conventicles in Hull by placing spies in every street, and suggested to Joseph Williamson that his presence was more important in the garrison ‘whilst the enemy is upon the coast’ than at Westminster. Sir Thomas Osborne listed him as a court dependant in 1669, when he was appointed to the committee to continue the earlier act against conventicles. He was one of the Members in debt to the crown in 1670, though only as surety for William Broxholme. He had no qualms about the harsh measures taken against Roman Catholics, telling his constituents that ‘they may thank themselves for it’, and evidently supported the bill to exclude them from Parliament ‘that now our laws will be made by those of our own religion’. He received the government whip in 1675, and was listed as an official. He served on the committees for the recall of British officers from the French service (10 Nov. 1675) and the Protestant education of the royal children (27 Mar. 1677). He was marked ‘thrice vile’ by Shaftesbury, and his name appeared on both lists of the court party in 1678, though in one of them it has been read as ‘Gibbs’. His name was mentioned by the informer Bedloe, once Belasyse’s servant, in his evidence to the House on the Popish Plot, and in his only recorded speech (assigned by Anchitell Grey to ‘Col. Rigby’) he demanded ‘a particular examination, that honest men may be vindicated, and others punished’.6

After the dissolution Gilby applied by letter to the corporation of Hull offering his services in the coming Parliament, but was turned down. The ordnance commissioners discovered that he had embezzled £650 Worth of lead and 12,000 bricks belonging to the Hull garrison. He was dismissed from his posts, but not otherwise proceeded against, ‘in consideration of his loyal and eminent services’. He was buried at Everton on 27 Apr. 1682, the only Member of his family to sit in Parliament.

He was offered a peerage at the accession of King George I but declined. He held the office of Member of Parliament (M.P.) for Dungannon, County Tyrone. He was appointed Privy Counsellor (P.C.). He purchased land in Dungannon, County Tyrone in 1692. He was recognised by Lord Lyon King of Arms as as male representative of the Knoxes of Ranfurley, and matriculated his arms at the Lyons Court as male representative of the Knoxes of Ranfurley on 15 July 1693.1

247 Gabriel Wayne, late of Aldbury but now of Mangotsfield in the county of Gloucester, who at this time am indisposed of body bot of sound and disposing sound mind, memory and understanding, I will and direct that all my just debts be paid and discharged and I charge all my real and personal Estates with the payment thereof.

My daughter Elizabeth now the wife of William Hayward Winstone Esq being sufficiently provided for I do not for this reason give unto her any part of my real and personal estate. My blessing and good wishes be ever attendant on her, her husband and children [?].

I most ardently wish and desire my daughter Catharina, now the wife of Charles Coke, being entitled to a Legacy given by her grandfather Gilbert Fleming Esq and shares on an Estate or plantation in the Island of Tortola which, when sold, is intended to be settled, is the reason I do not give unto her any part of my real and personal Estate.

Therefore, as my son Gabriel Winstone Wayne is the least provided for it is my design to make the best provision for him. I ran the said Estate in the Island of Tortola having been given to my said son and his heirs and assigns for ever by his grandfather, charged and chargeable with the payment of £1500 to each of his grand-daughters the said Elizabeth and Catharine after a debt due to me from the said Gilbert Fleming was paid. And it now appearing that such Estate will only fetch £1500 whereby no benefit or advantage can arise to my said son, but as the said Charles Coke and Sir[?] Winstone with my said son have agreed that whatever be the produce of the said Estate in case I would give up my debt due to me on the said Estate they would divide the same equally between them. Now in case the said Sir Winstone and Charles Coke shall carry the said agreement with my said son into execution, I do extinguish, disdain and give up all the remainder of my debt due and owing to me and now chargeable on the said Estate, but unless they do agree then I give unto my said son Gabriel Winstone Wayne all such my debt now chargeable on the said Estate subject to my debts as aforesaid, to hold to my said son Gabriel Winstone Wayne…

I give…to my said son Gabriel Winstone Wayne all my real and personal estates wheresoever the same be…I constitute and appoint my said son Gabriel Winstone Wayne sole Executor of this my last will and testament
