Stowe and Related Families

My Direct Line

Updated July 18, 2002

As you go through this list of names in my direct ancestry remember that I use the Ahnentafel Numbering system.  That system is very simple - on my ancestral chart, I (Molly Stowe) would be number one (1) father would be number two (2) mother would be number three (3)...each ancestor after that is a multiple of two - for instance, my father's father (my paternal grandfather) would be number four (4), his wife (my paternal grandmother) would be number five (5), my maternal grandfather would be number six (6), my maternal grandmother would be number seven (7), and so on.

I have withheld personal information on those relatives born after 1930, unless they have crossed over.   If you feel that you need this information, please contact me by email for discussion.

Family researchers may use the information they find here freely for their personal use only.  These pages, and the information they provide may NOT be copied or linked to for commercial use of any kind by a company
or an individual.

My grandmother was a high-school English teacher, and my grandfather was the county 4-H agent.  My grandmother was a very elegant lady.  She cooked like an angel, but that wasn't all.  She arranged the food so perfectly.  The table was always set beautifully with fine china and a creative centerpiece.  She died when I was seven, but I have many wonderful memories of her.

    Notes:  Samuel (Sammy) and Nancy (Nannie) belonged to the Church of Christ in
     Borden Springs, Alabama.  Sammy owned a lot of property at one time.  They lived
     in the old "Lorren" house (burned).  During his lifetime, Sammy was a member of
     the Masonic Lodge (and at least one of his daughters, Aunt Dandy [I believe], was
     a member of the Eastern Star).  He obtained the highest level of the Order.
     Samuel was diagnosed with a rare form of eye cancer that eventually spread
     throughout his body.  He made several trips to the Mayo Clinic (note: my mother's
     aunt Sue also had this form of eye cancer and was treated for it in Houston, Texas
     ...her's was benign) for treatment.   Unfortunately, Sammy's cancer spread through-
     out his body.  My mother's aunt Sue relates that the last time she remembers seeing
     her grandfather was the last time that Sammy returned home from the Mayo Clinic.
     Sue's family went with her grandmother Nancy to meet Sammy at the old Borden
     Springs (Alabama) train depot.  They lifted Sammy off the train on a stretcher.
     His eyes and head were swathed in bandages and he was in tremendous pain.
     Later, as an adult, she learned that the doctors at the Mayo Clinic had sent
     Sammy home to die.  "Doc" HAMILTON (killed in a car wreck in the '50s) was the
     Lorren family doctor and had been for many years.  He treated Sammy with heavy
     doeses of morphine until Sammy's passing on November 12, 1940.

"Warren was born in Suffield, Connecticut in 1755, about 20 years before the first shots of the Revolutionary War were fired.  However, it may never be known exactly which descendants of John Stowe of Boston were his parents, though it is almost certain he is descended from that line.  The Suffield record books are described by H.S. Sheldon in "History of Suffield", published in 1869, as "The town books for recording marriages, births, and deaths are the next in point of interest.  The first is a small folio bearing the date of 1702.  Entries indicate that it was in use from the time of the town's organization in 1682 to 1740.  It also contains records of intentions of marriage, estrays, and ear-marks for cattle, sheep, etc.  It is sadly battered by the wear of two centuries, and more than thirty pages are lost.  A second book, containing the records from 1740 to 1762, is not found.  In December, 1799, the town ordered the town clerk to collect and transcribe all marriages into one book.  This book is styles "Suffield, Records, Births, Marriages, and Deaths, Vol. I".  Later some records of intentions of marriage from 1740 to 1762 were found, and are included in "Suffield Land Records Vol. II."  This explains why the names of Warren's parents and the exact date of his birth have never been found.  Apparently, this information would have been found in the missing second book of records.  We know, from comments made by Warren and family Bible records that he descends from the emigrant JOHN STOWE of Boston, who arrived from England in 1634, and from observation and research, it is most probable that he is a great-grandson of John's son, THOMAS STOWE of Middletown, Connecticut.  While Warren's name is different from those of his ancestors, the name Thomas has been carried down through this family from the beginning.  And, since the surname was lost from Thomas' brother Samuel's line on the death of his only grandson at the age of 19, and considering that the descendants of Thomas' other brother, Nathaniel of Concord's, descendants stayed in Massachusetts for a few generations, it is a fairly safe assumption that Warren connects through Thomas.

Warren began his Revolutionary War service at about the age of 21.  He served from approximately 1 year after the beginning of the War until its end, a total of about 6 years.  In his attempts to obtain a pension for this service in later years, he made depositions in court detailing his movements during the War, so we have a fairly comprehensive look at his military service.  The first declaration is dated 20 Jan 1823 and reads as follows:

Georgia, Franklin County of Inferior Court sitting for ordinary purposes in Session on the 20 day of January Eighteen hunded & Twenty-three.  Personally appeared in open Court being a court of Record Specially Constituted by the Laws of this State for the Country aforesaid.  WARREN STOE aged Sixty Eight years who being Duly Sworn according to Law Doth on his oath make the following Declaration in order to obtain the provision made by the acts of Congress of the 18th March 1818 & the act May 1820 that he the said Warren Stoe enlisted enlisted for the Term of Twelve months in the first Twelve months Men that were raised after the Expiration of the time of the 8 months men that were raised in the State of Connecticut in the company Commanded by Capt Phillips in the Regiment Commanded by Col. being the first Regiment in the line of the State of Connecticut on the old Continental Establishment that he continued to Serve in said Corps until the expiration of the said Term when he was discharged from said service in the State of Connecticut that he enlisted three other serveral three months Towers & that he continued in the Several Services until they Severally expired & was duly discharged from each Several Service that he then enlisted during the War in the year Seventeen hundred & Seventy-Six or Seven in the State of Connecticut in the Company Commanded by Capt.

Apparently, because of his destitute situation at this time, he appeared in the Franklin County Court of Ordinary on Sept 6, 1824 and was excused from paying his poll tax.  He then appeared in Court once again in another attempt to obtain a pension for his Revolutionary War service.  This second declaration gives more detailed information about his service, and is dated Sept. 3, 1832.  It says:
State of Georgia, County of Franklin.  On this third day of September in the year Eighteen Hundred & thirty two personally appeared before the Inferior Court of said State & County now sitting for ordinary purposes WARREN STOW, a resident of the Capt. Catlets District in the County & Sate aforesaid, aged about Eighty years, who being first duly sworn according to Law, doth on this oath make the following Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832.  That he entered for Twelve months in the Connecticut State Troops in the Tower of Suffield, under Lieutenant Samuel Grainger & Capt. Noah Phelps, does not recollect the date, but it was about one year after the commencement of the War.  From Suffield was marched to Hartford & from thence aboard ship to New York City where marched to the white plains in New York State, from thence to West Chester, from thence to the Fish Kilns, from thence crossed the Hudson river & marched to join Genl.

Flowers (he thinks, James Flowers for the Regular Continental Army for during the War, was marched to Peekskill New York and was under command of Col. Sumner & General Washington was detached from the army to join Gel. Green in the South & was marched to near the Heigh hill, of Santee in South Carolina where he joined Genl. Green & lay some time at the Pond Ponds where he was discharged at the Close of the War.  When he joined General Green he was placed under the Command of Col. Dixon, thinks it was the 3d, or 4 Regiment but does not recollect any names of other officers.  Served altogether about six years - does not know of any person now if life that could testify to his service.

There is one other existing piece of evidence of Warren's service, apparently the only written proof.  It is a pay record from the state of North Carolina, a voucher or certificate of written promise to be paid a certain amount in hard cash at some time in the future, as was normal during the Revolution:
Statement of the Accounts of the Non Commisioned Officers and privates of the North Carolina Line, in the late Army of the United States, as passed upon by the Commissioner of Army Accounts:

WARREN STOE, Pvt; amount charged 51 dollars, 7 1/2 /90ths; balance paid & charged by the state; 51 dollars, 7/90ths; balance actually found  due; 46 dollars, 60/90ths; disallow'd Interest Charges 7 mo. in 81.

Other researchers state that John married twice - (1) Mary Sharp (Sharppe) and
(2) Sarah Winfield listing Benjamin's mother as Sarah and not Mary.  I have chosen to use (without documentation) Mary as my ancestor based on a letter to Patricia Smith from Joan Sellers states, "The Will of John Parks was dated 7 Feb 1787 and probated Jan. 1793 in Wilkes County, NC records.  From land records, John and wife "Mary" (emphasis mine) executed their last transaction on 3 Oct 1768 and then moved to NC."  This would mean that John and Mary were married in 1746 when Benjamin was born.   John mentions his children in his Will but a wife is not mentioned which makes one suppose that both Mary and Sarah predeceased John.  You may wish to contact Patricia Smith at [email protected] for more information regarding the Parks line.

Whether Thomas married Sarah "Miller" or Sarah "Linchfield is open to question. Apparently
this is a problem several researchers have had and some have worked around it by omitting the wife.  There appears to be no documentation beyond this point for the wife's family regardless of the surname.  It is possible that Sara Linchfield and Sarah Miller is the same person and a weak support of this is that a grandson is named "Linchfield" Parks.  I welcome any  documentation for Sarah.

                 774.  John KINCHELOE, Jr.

John Kincheloe, Sr. inherited the Richmond County land from his father, Cornelius.  John sold
10 acres to William Smyth (Smith) on April 21, 1722, and he sold the remaining 90 acres to
Robert Smyth (Smith on June 2, 1724, for 6,000 pounds of "good and weighty tobacco" packed
in casks.  John then acquired hundreds of acres of land in Stafford County.  This land became
part of Prince William County, just west of what is now Washington, D.C.  The land was on both
sides of Bull Run, along Occuquan Creek and Nebasco Creek in Hamilton Parish.  In 1737, he
bought land on Powell's Run and more land on Bull Run and in Hamilton Parish. John was born around 1700 in North Farnham Parish and served as warden of Truro Perish, Prince William
County, 1732-1736 and Vestryman (A committee of members elected to administer the
temporal affairs of a parish) in his church from 1736-1746.  John signed his will on March 16,
1746 and died later that month in Prince William County.  He was married to Elizabeth (maiden
name unknown) and they had eleven children.  According to the book Kincheloe McPherson
and Related Families by McPherson, 1951, John was married to Elizabeth CANTERBURY.
However, John W. Kincheloe, III, in his book  "This Is Where He Walked...."
Kincheloe, 1995,  states  that he could find no Richmond County documents to support the
Canterbury-Kincheloe connection stating:

Given Kincheloe family traditions regarding the name "Canterbury", ....So, to quote Geoffrey Chaucer, "Here beginneth the Book of the Tales of Canterbury...."

Investigation to confirm a Kincheloe connection with the Canterbury family revealed to this researcher a surprising fact.  In every Richmond County document offered in McPherson's book as evidence for linking the two families, the name "John Kincheloe" was substituted for another name appearing in the actual document.  The true name appearing in these records is "John Canterbury."  This man, whose surname is clearly written in these documents as "Canterbury," appears in no way to have been related to the Kincheloe family.  His mother was Ruth Canterbury.  His wife Elizabeth was the daughter of William Smith (see Richmond County Deed Book 8, p. 284, and Richmond County Wills, for Joan Frith Williams Wills L(l)oyd dated 8 Jan. 1703/2 Feb. 1703/4).  It is something of a puzzle how this error was made.

At least two additional pieces of evidence have been offered in support of a Canterbury family connection with the Kincheloes, but in the absence of any supporting Richmond County documents, neither is strong evidence for a definite Canterbury family link.  Here is that evidence, however:

1) According to McPherson (p. 321), a South Carolina record from 1810 exists which mentions "John and Elizabeth C. Kincheloe. "Several facts leave the present author skeptical that this is a strong argument for a link to the Canterbury family.  First of all, the presence of the letter "C" is not sufficient evidence, by itself, to argue for a Canterbury family connection.  Secondly, the record cited is a power-of-attorney document signed by the husband of John and Elizabeth Kincheloe's eight child, Nancy Ann.  This document was created when Nancy Ann was at the least in her 75th year.  She did not sign the document.  (Elizabeth, her mother, the one whose name is in question, had been dead for 35 years.  Nancy's husband, born in 1734, was 76 years of age at the time the document was put to paper.  Since the document regards power-of-attorney, matters of competency may have been involved.  We cannot know.  Acknowledging all of this, however, the validity of the evidence in this South Carolina document created for an in-law, involving no immediate Kincheloe kin directly, and entered into record nearly a hundred years after Elizabeth left behind her maiden name, may be questioned.  But the greatest problem with this evidence is that in the early 1700's the only records of an "Elizabeth Canterbury" in Richmond County plainly show that she was the wife of John Canterbury, and this was the case at the same time John Kincheloe and his own wife Elizabeth were having children!  It appears that somewhere along the line, an early family researcher confused these two John's and Elizabeth's.

2)  The remaining piece of evidence to support the claim of a Kincheloe-
Canterbury connection comes from the fact that Daniel Kincheloe, the third child of John and Elizabeth Kincheloe, named his homestead "Canterbury."  While this indicates honor for the name "Canterbury," it does not necessarily imply a family connection.  This evidence, standing alone as indeed it does, appears simply and most obviously to make the grown son of John Kincheloe a pious church member.  Canterbury Cathedral was and is, of course, one of the most important religious centers for the Church of England.  During the years we are considering, the Church of England was the Church of Virginia.  That John Kincheloe was a Vestryman in his church from 1736 until he died in 1746, is a fact to be noted in this connection.

To conclude, proof for a longstanding Canterbury-Kincheloe kinship may exist, but as of this writing it is the author's opinion that a strong case has not been made.... The primary argument against a Canterbury link is a simple one: contrary to what certain researchers have claimed, there are no Richmond County documents whatsoever which support this claim."

                  1548.  John KINCHELOE, Sr.

John Kincheloe III states that the earliest ancestor of the Kincheloe Family in America
is "Cornelius" Kincheloe.  Oral history passed down indicates that Cornelius came from
Scotland, but the original location of his line is Hy Kinsella, Ireland.  Kincheloes were one of the rugged frontier families that settled the U.S. wilderness of Virginia, North Carolina, early Kentucky and Tennessee, and later the frontiers of Texas, and on to the California "Gold Rush."  Cornelius and his family settled on Kincheloe Spring Branch, at the headwaters of a creek called Oatspekety, then Horse Bridge Swamp, then Bryers, and now Jugs Creek, just west of Totuskey Creek, North Farnham Parish, Richmond County, "Old" Rappahannock County, Virginia.  Cornelius took deed to 100 acres of the Richmond County land in 1695.

The earliest appearance of what later came to be the conventional spelling of Cornelius' and
John's family name ~~ "Kincheloe" ~~ came in 1718 in the deed for Nathaniel Thrift's property,
which mentions "the lines of the land of William Smyth (Smith) and  John Kincheloe."  It is
interesting to discover that when Thrift subsequently deeded his land to his son William in
1723, the boundaries are recited just as in the 1718 deed, but John's name is spelled

         #2 Mary LISSON
                  3100. David WICKLIFFE III

          Note:  David was the first Protestant child born in the Maryland Colony. He
                      was also the 4th husband of Mary Lisson, who had a total of 5 husbands.
          Note:  Mary was the sister of Daniel LISSON, interpreter for the Indians.
                     Prior Marriages:  Some researchers claim she was married to
                    John WATTS in 1665; A.L. Kennedy believes her first husband was
                    Nathaniel POPE.  Her second husband was believed to be ? BRIDGES.
                    Her third husband was Lewis NICHOLAS.

Researcher's Note:  A. L. Kennedy wrote the following about Mary LISSON.  Note
other researcher's have put her name as SISSON, SESSIONS or variations.  I left her surname off this list until I received Ms. Kennedy's information that states,

Mary LISSON (not SISSON) was the second wife of David WICKLIFFE.  The problem was the way the L's were written at the time, if you look at texts on graphology.  I've seen the Westmoreland Co. records, on a trip to VA in abt 1993.  The following will send you to the approprite records, which I did check firsthand:
1665-1677, PART THREE, compiled by John F. Dornan:

"20 Feb. 1675/6.  Elizabeth WHITLIFFE, aged 25 years or thereabouts, sayeth that about five yeares since your deponent's husband David WHITLIFFE did buy a servant woman of Mr. Patricke SPENCE who asked David...

Eliza: Whettley"

It should be noted that it is not unusual for the surname WHETTLEY to be used in referring to the WICKLIFFE family.  In at least two other court records, David WICKLIFFE is referred to as both David WHITLEY and David WHITLIFFE (or other variant) in the same entry.  Note also the correct usage of the name in the record narrative - such variations in spelling are common in records of the period.  Therefore, it must be concluded that David was married prior to his marriage to Mary LISSON.

1665-1677, Part Four, Abstracted and compiled by John Frederick Dorman,
published by John Frederick Dorman, Washington, DC, 1975.

"25 July 1677.  Mary NICHOLAS, widdow, hath by three severall deeds of gife made over to her chilldren Nath: Pope alias Bridges and Lewis Nicholas severall goods and chattles.  Mary hath invested me David WHITLIFE, doe bind me that the children shall be brought up soe fare at schoole as to writt and reade.  It shall be lawful for Marry at her owne plasure to remove the children to the care of whome shee pleaseth.
    There is intention of marradge between Mary and myself.
        David (W) WHITLIFE
    Wit:  John WASHINGTON, Danniell LISSON, Anthony BRIDGES.
    20 Sept. 1677.  Recorded."
(Pg 6)

If you check the records far back enough, you find that Mary LISSON was the sister of Daniel LISSON.  She was never the wife of any Robert LISSON or SISSON.  The confusion may come in the reading of Daniel LISSON'S probate records, as he died without issue, and his relatives from Bristol,
England had to settle his estate.  One of them was named Robert, and had a wife named Mary, but this was after David WICKLIFFE married Mary LISSON.

Mary LISSON was not a SISSON by either marriage or birth.  She was b. Mary LISSON, as per the following:

Westmoreland Co. Deeds, Patents, etc.
20 July 1677, Mary NICHOLAS, widow, to my loving son Lewis NICHOLS (here listed property).  In case it shall please the Almighty to take to himselfe my sonne Lewis NICHOLAS...then all the aforesaid estate to my loveing sonne and his brother-in-law (meaning stepbrother) Nath: Pope alias BRIDGES (because he was the stepson of a man named BRIDGES),...If my sonnes should depart this life before the age aforesaid and myself be deceased alsoe, then the whole estate both of Nath: and Lewis to be equally divided between the surviving children of my brother and sister Mr. Danill LISSON and Jane LISSON.
There is a similar entry on the same date regarding her son Nathaniel's estate.  This establishes her maiden name as LISSON.

She was married to Nathaniel POPE, by whom she had a son Nathaniel. She then married someone named BRIDGES, and then Lewis NICHOLAS.
There are many court records to support this, but this one contains
three husband's names in one record:

8 June 1675
Mary BRIDGES of Westmoreland Co. unto my loving sonne Nathaniel POPE alias BRIDGES. (The term alias was used frequently in the colonial records, sometimes to identify a woman by both her maiden name and married name simultaneously, as when the first Nathaniel POPE transferred property to his then married daughter as "Ann POPE alias WASHINGTON", or because a stepson was sometimes identified by his stepfather's name)...For natural affection.  One mare...Below the entry is added on 25 August 1675. Acknowledged by Lewis NICHOLAS who married Mary POPE alias BRIDGES after his marriadge.
After Lewis NICHOLAS died she married David WICKLIFFE:
"25 July 1677.  Marry NICHOLAS, widdow, hath by three severall deeds of gife made over to her chilldren Nath: POPE alias BRIDGES and Lewis NICHOLAS severall goods and chattles.
    Mary hath invested me David WHITLIFE with the care and tuition of Nathaniell and Lewis and allsoe with there estate.  I, David WHITLIFE, doe bind me that the children shall be brought up soe fare at schoole as to writt and reade.  It shall be lawfull for Marry at her owne plasure to remove the children to the care of whome shee pleaseth.
    There is intention of marradge between Marry and myself.
        David (W) WHITLIFE

Note 1: Wycliffe ancestry as based on the "Kincheloe, McPherson and Related Families - their genealogies and biographies" by Lewin Dwinell McPherson, A.B., A.M.
(researcher's note - this book while containing errors that have been corrected after its publication is still invaluable for the accurate information it does contain)

" to Kincheloe ancestry and descent generally, and as to Wickliffe ancestry and descent specially, Judge William Arrington Wickliffe, deceased of Greenville, Muhlenberg Co., Ky and Charles Wicliffe Throckmorton, who contributed their verifications and corrections of an earlier genealogical chart of European Wickliffe ancestors of colonial immigrant, David Wickliffe, compiled, published or distributed back to Roger de Wyckliffe, Lor of Wyckliffe in Richmondshire, England, b. A.D. 1110, or for 840 years WITHOUT A MISSING GENERATION.  Its details beginning on this page, are copied from immigrant, David Wickliffe, to said Roger.  Judge Wickliffe, a wealthy coal mine owner, at advanced age, made long research visits to Va. in preparation for publishing a comprehensive genealogical book of descendants of his immigrant ancestor, David Wickliffe, and of David's ancestry abroad, but d[ied] suddenly before he could get ready to publish.  Compiler here acknowleges obligation to Clement Rose Jones for arrangement of the full Euroean chart of Wickliffe ancestry as copied following: '"Able students of the English ancestry of David Wickliffe (de Wyckliffe) and wife, Jane, who d. in Va. in 1682 recognize the greater probability to be that David was son of Anthony, who was living in A.D. 1610, and who, with brothers, Thomas, John, and Francis Wyckliffe, suffered recovery of the estate of their oldest brother, William Wyckliffe, Esq. Lor of Wyckliffe and Ulvington upon his death without heirs, which broke the entailment to him under the English laws of primogeniture.
    The students of English ancestry of American Wyckliffe family construct a line of their descent through the Lords of Wyckliffe, wich adds Lord of Ulvington in intervening generations, to William Wyckliffe, husband of Dorothy Place, parents of Francis Wyckliffe above.
    Whether the dates are meant for all persons as their birth and death dates instead of the beginning and end of the reign of the English king under whom they lived, has not been verified by compiler:
  1.  Roger de Wyckliffe in Richmondshire, Henry I (1110-1135).
  2.  Robert de Wyckliffe,. Henry II (1154-1189)
  3.  Roger de Wyckliffe and wife, Margaret de Multon, dau. of Thomas.  King John
  4.  Robert de Wyckliffe, wife, Matilda de Mumby, dau of Eudo and Matilda, his wife.
Henry III (1216-1272)
  5.  Sir Robert de Wyckliffe, Knight, and wife, Matilda de Belise, dau. and heir of Roger,
son of and heir of William, son of Arnold, by which Sir Robert de Wyckliffe became also
Lord of Ulvington, Edward I (1272-1307)
  6.  Robert de Wyckliffe and wife, Johanna de Ellerton in Swaledale, dau. and heir of
William, son of Galfred, King Edward, I, II and III (1307-1376),
  7.  Roger de Wyckliffe m[arried] Katherine - had 3 sons. Reign of Edward III (1327-1376)
  8.  Sir Roger de Wyckliffe, Knight, fought in battle of Crecy, 1346 and at Polotiers, Sept. 19, 1356.
     (a) Sir Roger de Wyckliffe, payson of the church of Wyckliffe, second son of No. 7 above.
     (b) John Wyckliffe "The Morning Star of THE REFORMATION in England" theologian,
who translated into English nearly all of the HOLY BIBLE in his stupendous labors.
  9.  Roger de Wyckliffe.  Henry IV (1329-1413)
10.  John de Wyckliffe.  Henry VI (1416-1422) m[arried] Anne Rokeby, dau. of Sir Thomas, Knight, Lord of Rokeby and Mortham.
11.  Robert Wyckliffe.  Edward VII. (1485-1509) m[arried] Margaret Conyers, dau of Christopher [sister of Margery] of Hornby Castle, County York, England, whose second son....
12.  Ralph Wyckliffe, 12th. Lord of Wyckliffe had no sons, and by reason of the entail, the lordship passed to this brother, John.
13.  John Wyckliffe m[arried] Katherine Surtees, dau. and heir of Thomas of Dinsdale.  John and Katherine had son,
14.  William Wyckliffe, who succeeded as male heir to his uncle, Ralph, as Lord of Wyckliffe and Ulvington and m[arried] Dorothy Place, as first hereof, who became parents of Francis,
15.  Francis Wyckliffe, Esq., Lord of Wyckliffe and Ulvington m[arried] Jane Rokeby, dau. of Thomas of Morthan and had sons, William, Thomas, John, Anthony and Francis.  Thomas, Anthony and Francis Wyckliffe are recorded as living in A.D. 1610.

Students of Wyckliffe ancestry have tentatively concluded that Thomas is father of David Wyckliffe, who went to MARYLAND in A.D. 1635, based apparently on the marriage of both this Thomas Wyckliffe and Robert Evelyn into the YONG family and that the association of David Wyckliffe with the Evelyns indicated relationship.
    The National Society of Magna Charter Dames are reported to have recorded and accepted the ancestry of David Wickliffe as in the foregoing list and to Robert Fitzwalter, a surety for Magna Charter, as follows:
    David Wyckliffe, son of Anthony, son of Francis, Esq., Lord of Wyckliffe and Ulvington, and wife, Jane Rokeby, dau. of Thomas of Mortham.
    This Francis Wyckliffe was oldest son of William, Esq., Lord of Wyckliffe and Ulvington, who succeeded his uncle as male heir in A.D. 1561 and d[ied] Aug 5, 1584 and his first wife, Dorothy Place, dau. of John, Esq., of Halmby, dau. of John Place and wife, Catherine, son of Roland and Margery (Conyers), Surteys, dau. of John Conyers, K.C. and Elizabeth (Grey) dau. og Robert de Grey and wife, Lorma St. Quineten, son of John de Grey, II, K.C. and Alice (Marmion), son of John and Margaret (Odingsells) dau. of William and Ella (Fitzwalter), dau. of  Robert and Ida (Longespree), son of Robert, first herein, surety for Magna Charter, a bill of rights, the "Great Charter", which laid a foundation for security of English political and personal liberty.
    The English barons forced King John to grant it, the king signing at Runnymede July 15, A.D., 1215.

Note2: A kind thank you to John Kincheloe III for allowing me to use excerpts from his books,
"Kincheloe Origins" Spirit Lines Press, 1997 and "This is Where He Walked...." Spirit Lines Press, 1995. I have his books on the Kincheloe family and recommend that anyone
researching the Kincheloe surname and family contact John at [email protected].
John has a lot of information on his web-site and in his books.  Unfortunately, he is in the middle of changing webservers. His old web site is archived and if you want to know all about our
Kincheloe ancestry, and until John's new site is up, this is the site to visit.  John has a lot of
research behind him and much to offer those who are researching their Kincheloe origins.  John is also restoring the first Kincheloe homestead for the benefit of all Kincheloe descendants.
