As for the Tudors, Charles II had a natural daughter named Lady Mary Tudor who married Edward Radcliffe (Earl of Derwentwater). Lady Mary was b. 16 Oct. 1697 and d. 5 Nov. 1756.Her mother was Moll Davies, an actress b. abt. 1648 and d. unknown.So Mary was a Stuart.She married William Petre in 1721. Mary divorced at least once or twice.
There was at least one other Tudor connection but I have forgotten it.
I wonder if someone on the Wilson genforum can tell us who Jane Wilson d. 1792 actually was?I may post a query there tonight.Imagine how busy that forum must be...Wilson!
The William Radcliffe who rec'd a pension for Rev'y War service began his pension 10 years after William Radcliff, son of Daniel Stephen died in Wood Co., VA (now WV). That is the man whose pension records I have somewhere.I haven't received any photos from you as yet unless they are waiting to be opened.My pedigree:
Daniel Stephen b. England 1714 d. unknown Hampshire Co., VA David b. abt. 1757 Hampshire Co., VA d. unk. Jackson, Ohio. Joseph b. 1817 Jackson, OH d. d. 1874 Jackson, OH. Vincent Cole b. 1839 Jackson, OH d. 1916 Columbus, OH. John Q.A. Radcliffe b. 1873 Jackson, OH d. 1941 Canton, Stark, OH. Kenneth Charles b. 1913 Columbus, OH d. Port St. Lucie, FL 1992.
If you ever find Nell Nugent's volumes of Northern Neck land grants / purchases it might be of value.I can't locate copies but a number of Radcliffs of various spellings purchased the lands of Lord Fairfax.One was spelled RATCLEPH.
I'll try to find more on Sarah Jordan Bates but please don't hold your breath.I think there may be a little controversy there but we will see.We'll talk about the controversy privately.
