Welcome to our site

Hello this is David George DeLancey this site is of anything to do with the term Anciently and DeLancey. My interests are Art Economics History in that order. I was born 12-27-1961 at Dorchester, Massachusetts. My mother's maiden name is Clotilde Corvello unfortunately she and my father Arnold Holbert DeLancey Jr. have passed on. I also have a brother who passed who was a year younger than me, born 11-29-1962. I have three sisters and six other brother's. My year older brother born 11-13-1960 has a son. My other five brothers are half my age younger. My two brothers and I were born in the sixties, we would have been all in the same month though unfortunetly I was born in the tenth month of my mothers pregnancy; which is ok by me I like December. My mothers side of the family are residing in Massachusetts, Arizona, and Florida. She has three other living sisters alltogether there were five sisters and two brothers, my two uncles live in Arizona and Florida. They all were born in the United States, her parents were born in Portugal. My Dad's > modified-8:06 A.M. < father's side of the family came here from Nova Scotia then from New York then from France in the Sixteen Hundreds. This side of the family will have a mixed breed throughout Europe. There are posible ties with  DeLancey members circulating the Americas, especially the area in which became New England, before Etienne (Stephen) DeLancey came in 1663. In fact it would'nt surprise me that some of the French connection actually went out of France during the Epict of Nantes or any other kind of experience and while assuring prominence in places like Holland, minipulated the name DeLancey to such forms of DeLanoy and then we have the DeLavall with an extra 'l' which may be the same family who in heritance of that place name kept it. I mention DeLanoy of Holland in the sence that they were probably there for some time and those that went there from France may have inquired of  another to seek vacancy elsewhere. When you lose your status in one place there just may be another elsewhere whom may still have ordinance. Holland is a place of high trade and mercantilism. The inquireries of France stated in the 17th century that the name and family were civily dead. This may be the cause in some of this inventory stating "had no issue" my relavent search for that information will be conducted through research. This was added 12-16-2010 now 8:17 A.M. E.S.T. <> This site was created on 9-14-2010 at aprox 8:30 P.M. IT IS NOW 8:41 P.M. E.S.T. This site was first  published to the web 12-5-2010 within the 7th hour P.M. E.S.T. This site will be periodically updated with more information and corrections in my writing, such as spelling, commas and the sort  that define creative and good writing. Thank You, Yours Truely,  Your Humble Servant, In The Most Regards, Till Next Time and whatever else may come at the end of my Paragraphical Ventures,  as usual just the date and time, I think that's important. There are going to be multiple pages here and alot of information. I am also currently putting together a site at www.AncientlyDeLancey.GoogleSites.com Here at Yola.com I have besides this site, www.DavidGeorgeDeLancey.yolasite.com  and www.DavidGeorgeDeLanceyWorldWideWisdom.com These other two will be published perhaps sometime next year or maybe within this last month of 2010.

 8:21 P.M. E.S.T. 12-7-2010 History of DeLancey from France continued. Charles II succeeded in 1535 as Fifth Vicompte his wife was Isabbeau Branche, daughter of Furie Branche, Ecuyer, Sieur deBrean, whom married 15th April 1534. This is my 10th  Grand Father. In the book by D.A. Story The DeLancey's "A Romance of a Great Family" it starts with my 14th grandfather Guy deLancey being alive in 1432. (continuing) They had three sons, Charles III Jacques and Claude, and one daughter, Barbe. Charles III sixth Vicompte married; 1st, on July 21, 1569, Madeleine LeBrun; and 2nd on the 15th January, 1593, Claude de May. He was present at the Battle of Ivry in 1590. By his first wife he had  Charles IV Seigneur de Cocquebine, created by the King a Counsellor of State in 1652, who died in 1667, leaving by his first wife, Francoise deCrochart, a son Charles VIII, Seigneur de Charlemont, who died unmarried, when this line of the whole blood of the eldest branch became extinct in the males; and two daughters, Marie, died unmarried in 1674 and Anne, wife of Antoine le Parmentier, Ecuyer, Sieur de Cauroi. By his second wife, Dame Marthe de Resnel he had no issue. Charles III by his second wife Claude de May had Charles deLancey, Sieur de Suine et ne Neville, Councellor of the King in 1654, Antoine, a Canon of the Cathedral of Laon, and, of course unmarried, and Claude, Charles Sieur de Suine et Neville, married 25th June 1653, Jeanne de Ysore, and died 23rd November, 1689, aged 78 years. He had one son Charles Ambrose DeLancey, Ecuyer, Seigneur de Neville et du Coudai, who was confirmed in the possession of his nobility by an 'arret' or decree of the King in Council, of November 30th, 1697, in consequence of the proof of the descent then made; which declared that 'la Maison deLancey' was maintained in its 'noblesse' and its members recognized as 'nobles d' ancienne extraction'; and as much of right enjoyed, and were entitled to all the privileges belonging to the "noblesse" of France. This Charles Ambroise married, 9th January 1702, the Demoisselle Marie Madeleine Labbe', and had only one child, a son, Pierre Charles deLancey Ecuyer, Seigneur deNeville et deBlarus, born 5th June, 1707, who died without issue in 1750, when this line of the half blood of the eldest branch became extinct. "Jacques 1st 2nd son of Charles II the father of Jacques of Caen whose son Etienne, born 1663 came to New York in 1686 was the ancester of the Huguenot, or second line of the elder branch. His descendents, as Protestants, being civily dead and  not appear in the French genealogies subsequent to the beginning of the seventeenth century. "Claude 1st, the 3rd son of Charles II Seigneur deCharles, married the 5th Febuary 1577, Marguerite deBrisset and had two sons John 3rd and Charles 6th John married in 1625, Madeleine Martin and their son Charles 9th married in 1653, Elizabeth Saubinet and their son Louis deLancey, Seigneur de Bois-Carbonet, and a Chevalier of St. Louis, died in 1736 having served in the armies of Louis XIV and Louis XV forty-seven years. He left a widow, Marie Catherine Therese daughter of Francois Poschet, Seigneur deNahant, whom he married 1st April 1723 and four children, three sons, Louis Charles, Nicholas Charles, Gabriel and one daughter Francoise. These sons left no decendents. Charles 6th the second son of Claude the third son of Charles II married Elizabeth Marcigny and dying in 1643 left her a widow with young children, names not given, who did not survive.'?' Thus the third line of the eldest branch became extinct.? "Christophe the 2nd son of Charles I Ecuyer, Vicompte de Laval et de Nouvain, above named, the first of the youngest branch in France, was created Baron de Raray (sometimes spelt Raret, Rare and Rarai) a dependency of Dravegny, in the Duchy of Valois, one of the four "barronies vassales" of the Bishopric of Senlis. He married 1st Barbe de Louen on the 10th December, 1539 who died without issue,  and 2nd, Francoise Lami daughter of Pierre Lami, Seigneur de la Morliere, on the 19th January, 1553, and dying in 1584 left, by his sencond wife, a son, Nicholas second Baron who was Treasurer-General to Gaston, first Duke of Orleans and left by his wife "Lucrece de Lancise a lady of Florence, four children:-Henry deLancey third Baron, in whose favor the territory of Nery in the Valois was erected into the Marquisate of Raray in 1654 the letters of creation being registered on the 17th January of that year. 2: Francoise deLancey Seigneur d'Aramont, known as the Chevalier de Raray who died unmarried, being killed in the trenches at the siege of Conde' on the 17th of August, 1674. 3: Charles deLancey 7th, Seigneur de Ribecourt et Pimpre', who married Madeleine , widow of Philippe d'Aguesseau, but died in 1675 without issue.  4:Madeleine deLancey married 11th November, 1619, to Charles deMarnay, Seigneur de Montchevreuil Henry, his son; Gaston and his brother Charles were maternal cousin of the famous madame de Sevigne', and as such signed the contract of marriage of her daughter with the Compte de Grigman, and were present at the ceremony. "Henry deLancey third baron and first Marquis de Raray married Catherine d'Angennes January 20th, 1633 and had issue- Gaston Jean Baptiste second Marquis, Charles deLancey-Raray killed at the siege of Lille in 1667, unmarried, and a daughter Marie Charlotte who married Louis des Acres, Marquis de L'Argle and died at Paris on the 27th August 1724, aged 82 years. "Gaston Jean Baptiste deLancey fourth Baron and second Marquis  de Raray married the 4th of May, 1660, Marie Luce Aubery daughter of Robert, Marquis de Valan and  had two sons: 1.Charles Henri  deLancey third Marquis, made a page to the King, Louis XIV, in  1679, who died unmarried. 2.Gaston Jean Baptiste deLancey-Rary fourth Marquis, who likewise died unmarried. Both of these brothers died in 1680, and with their death the youngest branch became extinct in the males.9:46 p.m. 12-7-10

 12-16-2010 3:38 P.M. "DELANCEY BOOK" Continuing from above 12-7-10 They had five sisters: Henriette, married to the Marquis de Crevecoeur, and died without issue: Catherine married the Seingneur de la Billarderie and died without issue: Francoise 2nd and Annette who both died unmarried; and Marie Luce deLancey-Raray who married on the 26th February, 1696, Jean Francois, Compte de Nonant. With her as the last of her family he also took the name of  Raray, and uniting it with his own became Compte  de Nonant-Raray. He died 24th March, 1740, aged seventy-five; and she the 16th March, 1743, aged eighty; their descendant in the fifth degree is the present (1879) Compte de Nonant-Raray. "Thus of all the branches of the family the Huguenot one alone exists at this day, and the name of deLancey, for more than a century (and a half) extinct in France, is a familiar one in America, to which it was borne simply and solely for fidelity to religious principle nearly two centries ago. (Now 1926, 240 years ago) by D.A. Story (Now 2010, 324 years ago) reviewed and noted by David George DeLancey. "The law of 1789 removed all legal disabilities from the descendants of the Huguenots, and gave them the right to recover their rank titles and estates of which they were deprived by the different edicts of Louis XIV, and their very names forbidden to be registered, as being "civily dead" unless they adjured Protestantism; but few  of them, to their credit,  have ever taken advantage of it." "The details and genealogy above stated are condensed correctly it is believed, from the official M. S. 'deLancey' genealogies in the 'Armorial General de la France', 2nd Register 2nd Volume, in the National Library at Paris, and from the M.S.S. in the archives of the Department of the Aisne, from which a genealogy from Guy to Charles III, is given in the 'Dictionnaire Historique du Department de L'Aisne', by M. Melleville, published in two volumes, 8 vo. in 1865; also from the 'Tablettes Genealogiques des Maisons Nobles de France' under 'Lacy-Raray', 'Nonant', and 'Aubery de Valan' in the Annuaire de la Noblesse for 1885 by M. Borel d'Hauterive: from the Dictionnaire de la Noblesse de France', Vol. VIII, by M. de la Chenaye-Derbois, Paris, 1874, under Lancy, from the 'Le Palais de l'honneur' by le Frere Anselme, Paris, 1674, under 'd'Angennes' and from 'Le Nobiliare de Picardie', Paris, 1693, under 'Lance'. "The Roman numerals above prefixed to the same Christian name in different generations, are so given in the first authorities above named, and are commonly used in French genealogical works, especially in the older ones. "The M.S.S. refered to were in perfect state of preservation in 1868. They were first printed in  1738-68 by order of Louis XV.

_____THE ARMS OF THE DELANCEYS_____ "The arms of the deLanceys are thus blazoned in the 'Armorial General de la France.' "Arms, d'or a l'aigle eployee  de sable, chargee sur l'estomac d'un ecusson d'azur, a haut," which translate into English heraldic idiom is "Arms; or, an eagle displayed sable, charged on the breast with a shield* argent, bearing three tilting lances proper, in pale, points upwards." Over the main shield they carried the seignorial coronet of Vicompte. These arms, originating before crests  were introdused in heraldry, were modified like his name, by Etienne deLancey, on becoming a British subject, to make them more like English arms, most of which have crests. However, they were never registered in the English college of arms and do not, therefore, appear in its publications. As used by him, his son, Governor James deLancey, and family up to the close of the revolution they were, Arms, Azure; a tilting lance proper, point upward with  a pennon argent, bearing a cross gules fringed or floating to the right debruised of a fess or, crest, a sinister arm in armour, embowed, the hand grasping a tilting lance, pennon attached both proper. ___-Motto: "Certum Voto Pete Finem."___ The motto means .Name-which is "Corse"  motto <> which is "Aim at a sure End" <> <> *The shield or escutcheon argent on the breast of the eagle indicates that they were originally Knights of the Holy Roman Empire,++part of p. 6, all of 7,8,9,10,11++  ~-----------"DeLanceys " A  Romance of A Great Family~ attached 12-16-2010 4:38 P.M.

It is proposed that Louis VII (1137-1180) created the French system of peers. Peerage was attached to a specific territorial juristiction, either on episcopal see for episcopal peerage or a fief for secular. Peerage attached to fiefs were transmissable or inherited with the fief, and these fiefs are often designated as pairie-duche (for duchies), and pairie-comte (for counties). By 1216 there were nine peers. Archbishop of Reims who had the distinction of crowning the king. Bishop of Langres. Bishop of Beavais. Bishop of Chalons. Bishop of Noyon. Duke of Normandy. Duke of Burgundy. Duke of Aquitaine also called Duke of Guyenne. Count of Champagne. The presence of Normandy - held by the English crown by Angevin heritage - was theoretical, since in French eyes it had been forfeited to the crown in 1202. A few years later and before 1228 three peers were added to make the total of twelve peers: Bishop of Laon. Count of Flanders. Count of Toulose. These twelve peerages are known as the ancient peerage or Prairie Ancienne and the number twelve is  sometimes said to have been chosen to mirror the 12 Paladins of Charlemagne in the chanson de geste which pledges the knight's fealty to Charlemagne. The elite of the Imperial Army and Charlemagne's closet advisors were called *"The Twelve Peers"*. In the Oxford edition The Song of Roland the peers are, Roland, Olivier, Geren, Gerier, Anseis, and Gerard  de Roussillan chanson de Roland. Parallels may also be seen with mythical Knights of the Round Table under King Arthur. So popular was the notion, that for a long time people thought peerage had originated in the reign of Charlemagne and he was also a perfect example  of a shining king for knighthood and nobility.

The twelve original peers were divided in two classes, six clerical peers hierarchically above six lay peers, which were themselves divided in two, three dukes above three counts.

In 1204 the Duchy of Normandy was absorbed by the French crown, and later in the 13th century two  more of the lay peerages were absorbed by the  crown Toulouse 1271, Champagne 1284, so in 1297 three new peerages were created the County of Artois, the Duchy of Anjou and the Duchy of Brittany to compensate for the three that had disappeared. 

Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Reims.~ The archdiocese comprises the arrondissement of Reims and the department of Ardemes while the Province comprises the region of Champagne-Ardenne. The suffragen diocesses within Reims are Amiens, Beauvais-Noyon-Senlis, Chalons, Langres, Soissons-Laon-Saint-Quentin, and  Troyes. The Archepiscopal see is located in the Cathedral of Notre-Dame de reims, where the Kings of France were traditionally crowned.

Franks: The Franks employed dukes as the governors of Roman provinces, though they also led military expeditions far from their duchies. The dukes were the highest ranking officials in the realm, typically Frankish (whereas the counts were often Gallo-Roman), and formed the class from which the king's generals were chosen in times of war. The dukes  met with the king every May to discuss policy for the upcoming year, the so-called Mayfield. taken from Duchess information (Knightly. Keira.

From as early as the 13th century The Knights Templar,  Hospitallers, and Teutonic Knights purchased or were given many castles, by nobility of its time from the crusader states, this was in cause because of the low effort no account affording to garrison and maintaining them. The Templars held fourteen fortifications and two other properties in the Iberian Peninsula during the 12th and 13th centries. The Templars held five fortresses and fourteen other properties in eastern Europe.

A good sourse of work by__ Evelyn Lord __ "The Knights Templar in Britain" describes how they built their own churches but in old style and used on the spot local help to do it. P.158  If a Templar church was going up it was built in the local style, anywhere the Templars were, the local cultural style was the style of the church  built.

I'm thinking a Church is like a Temple, almost like a Palace. A church is a place where many are, as where a house or home is of a certain unit of a family. Such as a castle you'll never hear of the Kings home being a certain part of the castle, although you will  hear that the king or queen live in the castle and sometimes they'll live in different parts of it.         

12:11 P.M. 12-14-2010 notes taking at 10:44 A.M.  from History of the city of New York. search was started with www.ancientlydelancey.com go to www.toquod.lib.umich.edu  go  to page 243 for Van Cortlandt. Here is something on DeLanoy and DeLavall. Peter DeLanoy, Mayor of New York in 1688-9, was a merchant who came to the city from Holland, about the year 1651. He was an active adherent of Leisler, and was elected Mayor by the popular suffrage, being the first person chosen to that office by the people. Thomas DeLavall, Mayor in 1666-71-78, became first known as a resident here after the capture by the English in 1664. He was then a captain in the English service, and held a command under Colonel Nichols; but it would seem that he had been before that time in America, as we find some transactions of his which took place prior to the year 1664. Captain DeLavall immediately after  the surrender of the place to the English, took a prominent part in the administration of public affairs. He purchased a farm at  Harlem, and also a residence in the city on the present southeast corner of Broad street and Exchange place, his premises imbracing an orchard and large garden. Captain DeLavall visited England in  the late mid 1600's where he had a conference with the Duke of York, who sent by him to the mayor and aldermen a mace of the Mayorality office, and gowns for the Alderman. He died in this city  in the year 1682, leaving a considerable estate. His son John DeLavall and several daughters (married to eminent merchants of the city), succeeded to his property. William Dervall, Mayor in 1675, was originally a Boston Merchant, who had been somewhat interested in the trade with New Amsterdam and about the year 1667, engaged in that trade. His brother accompanied him, and  they set up a store, principally of dry goods. William married a daughter of Thomas DeLavall, (a wealthy citizen who had been Mayor of New York) and occupied a fine residence near the present corner of Whitehall and State streets.

Abram DeLanoy one of the inhabitants who offered loans for  erecting the city Palisades in 1653, also in part with the tax and contibution list, raised in 1653, to defrey the debt for constructing the city defences. He was at the highest bracket to this cause.

In 1775 he lived at Greenwhich, Long Island. His estate produced between 3,000 and 4,000 Pounds per annum, had 531 tenants and but for troubles (i.e. political troubles) would have been worth 10,000 Pounds per annum to him. Held bonds in Connecticut for 21,000 Pounds, had 23 slaves. Loss by fire in New York 23,591 Pounds. Furniture burnt in house belonging to Colonel Cruger valued at 973/16/7 Pounds. house burned at Kingston 400 Pounds. Stock  275 Pounds. Brother's picture_________. Account for forage given to the Treasurer 1,126/16/0 Pounds. The expences of patenting Lands in New York Province was 25 Pounds per 1,000 acres. Mr. deLancey had half pay as colonel. Confiscation is proved, but no proof of sale. Mrs. DeLancey has an allowance of 200 Pounds per annum, Miss DeLancey an allowance of 100 Pounds per annum. John Smythe, Esq., Perth Amboy, states "General deLancey had the 1/2 of 2/24 A 24th share, if nothing done upon it, was worth a thousand (pounds) currency. Did not think General delancey had 40,000 acres. He gave half of one 24th share to his son just before the trouble, thinks General deLancey's land was worth 25 shillings per acre one with another." General Robertson: "Has know General DeLancey many years before the rebellion. His was one of the first fortunes in the Province. It is difficult to estimate American estates. He bought a great deal of land in New Jersey. He believes his house was burnt  out of enmity. He was held a man of great integrity and honor. He kept a good table and lived in great splendour.

General Stirling states: "He knew his house at Bloomingdale. He thinks it was worth 1,600 or 1,800 Pounds, with the furniture 2,000 Pounds or near that. General deLancey had large property rights in New Jersey. He purchased from one, Duckora, more than 2/24th of the whole province. These rights were granted by Charles II to the Duke of York and by him to the two first proprietors, Lord Berkeley and Lord Cartant. Known also to have had 1,060 acres at "Wreck-a-bank" which in a division came to Deckere. Thinks it worth '-' 5 Pounds per acre. " NOTE: It is worthy of note that in the acts of Attainder 280-290 were aimed at the friends of the deLancey's all Episcopalians.

___________BANNERET__________p.77   Banneret. a higher grade of Knighthood conferred by the sovereign for some heroic act performed on the field. The first Banneret in England is said by Froissart to have been made by King Edward I, and the last by King Charles I after the battle of Edgehill. The ceremony must have been impressive. The King or General at the head of his army, drawn up  in order of battle after victory, under the Royal Standard displaye, and attended by all the nobility and officers of the court, received the Banneret-elect, who was not necessarily a Knight previously. He was led by two Knights of note, or other men famous in arms; he carried his pennon in his hands. The heralds walking before him and proclaiming his valiant Banneret and to be allowed to display his banner on the field. The King or General said to him "advance Banneret". He then caused his pennon to be torn off (thus making it a banner). The new Knight with the trumpets sounding before him and the nobility and officers bearing him company, was sent back to his tent, where a noble entertainment was provided by the King. In the British order of precedence, a banneret made under the Royal Banner in open war, the Sovereign and the Prince of Wales both being present, rank above the younger sons of Viscounts and barons, and Bannerets not made by the Sovereign in person rank next below Baronets and above Knights Grand Cross of the Bath. 2:12 P.M. 12-14-2010

He was made an honorary Doctor of Civil Laws in 1829, and succeeded his father as British Consul-General in New York in 1830, which office he held until his death in 1877. He was knighted for his services to his country JANE DELANCEY the fifth daughter and 10th child of Peter and Elizabeth (Colden) DeLancey married Oct. 2nd, 1775, John Watt, Jr. son of the Hon. John Watt of DeLancey and Watt, and his wife Ann (DeLancey) Watt, and was the mother of, among others, Susan Watt, who married Philip Kearny, and Mary Justine Watt, the youngest daughter, who maried Frederick de Peyster. WARREN DELANCEY the 1st, the eleventh child of Peter and Elizabeth (Colden) DeLancey, born about 1758, was accidentally drowned in early childhood and before the birth of his brother of the same name. WARREN DELANCEY  the 2nd who was the twelfth child, was born at West Farms, N.Y., in 1761. He joined the British Army  at the time of the revolution, although then very young. At the engagement of Chattertons Hill, Westchester Co. in 1776, when as the British were advancing up the hill a shot killed one of the standard bearers, deLancey instantly seized the colours and, rushed forward. He was one of the first to gain the summit, where he planted the colours in the ground. For this act of bravery he afterwards (1st Aug., 1780) received a cornetcy in the 17th  Dragoons commanded by Oliver deLancey the younger, from Sir Wm. Howe. He appears to have left the army before the close of the  war, although some of the family recoreds refer to him as colonel. Appleton gives the date of his death at Madison, New York, as 1855, but this must be an error, as his cousin-in-law, James Fennimore Cooper, in a letter dated March 11th, 1848, states that "he died in the State of New York near me a year or two since, leaving issue." He was living in New York until 1837. He married three times and left six grown children: 1st Mary Lawrence, who died Sept. 23rd, 1788, with her infant son; 2nd Ann Taylor, who left issue; 3rd Rebecca Lawrence,d.s.p._____________ -SUSANNAH DELANCEY 1ST, THE ELDEST DAUGHTER OF STEPHEN DELANCEY 1ST, AND HER CHILDREN.

 12-19-2010 4:23 P.M. ~~~ ROBERT DE WAUCHOPE 1296 ~~ WAUGH Wauchope, a surname derived from the lands of Wauchopedale, parish of Langholm, Dumfries-shire .

The ancient family Wauchope of Wauchope were originally settled  in the district of Liberton, Mid Lathian, and are the oldest family in that country. They were land proprietors in Culter, Aberdeenshire,  in the North of Scotland. Robert de Wauchop of Culter, with other barons of Scotland, swore fealty to Edward I in 1296. It may appear (and my research continues) that the name place Wauchope may have came after the the first part of its name, and the first part of the name being described as Walh or Walhs. The first being singular and or male and the second being plural and or female, although  i've seen both genders using a name of the same degree. This  ancient Germanic name meaning "foreigner" or "stranger" (welsh) or "roman". Germanic=welsch.

This name is of the sothern Scotish boarder origins and the northern English origin boarders. Note: The "ish" after a countries station, is the description of that stationary subject. Before such place was given a name, the area still of existing had yet another formating blend to its cultural naming and meaning, and in some area's a meander was the opening of an oldish waterway. These area's were habitated long ago based on the moisture and capabilities of the meadow type field. This in some cases provided shelter and protection, and was seemingly a clean strand of land in laters years it would become even more suitable through culture. Research will find these area's to be yet occupied by tribal issues. Much of these were adopted by Roman and then in Legion. The accountability of ancestry files were yet to be in action more over. With new administration canvassing the aera's law and kind ' would be thence now affected. Commonly found on both sides of the Scotish boarders and northern English origin. It is an ethnic name meaning  "foreignor" derived from Old English pre 7th Century (Anglian) word "Walh' foreign, used by the Anglins of the Strathclyde Celts, the Britons who survived as a seperate group in Scotland "research for when Scotland became its name is of significance) well into the Middle Ages. The name "Wallace" is from the same source, the word name and or meaning of "Waleis' and was used to denote Scotsmen, Welshmen, and Britens". The recorded name of England is that of 'William Wahh' in the Poll tax records of Yorkshire, 1379.

In Scotland the Waughs of Heap in Roxburghshire held these lands from the 13th Century to the 17th Century. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Robert Walgh, which dated 1296. Documents relating to Scotland, Public Records Office, during the reign of John Balliol, King of Scotland, 1292-1296

Search Waugh name these findings ~ and may have a similar  spelling, reasoning for this is in the old times with the Poll Tax where individuals had to pay some would be of the exact naming. Cousins, brothers and fathers having the same name. So the spelling started to change. And it now appears that during this period the  last names were becoming more stable, that of if the father held  the name of a sort then the children held and bore that same name, though in certain circumstance a family member may be onwards to better prestige then would still be observed as the family member although would carry a different name. Through time this is how certain legalities became separated, the names that is. This is why research through historical data is very beneficial. Some records  such as " The Hearth Rolls", The Inquisito Rolls, The Ragman Rools " The Domseday Book-Great and Little"  . . The Exchequer Rolls of Scotland, and parish cartularies, baptismals, and tax rolls. The first record found of Waugh is of Dumfriesshire where as in Wauchopdale  were seated of the year 1249.

The family name Waugh is so far as historical research has provided with the association of the Strathclyde Britons. This ~ancient~ founding race of the north were a mixture of Gaelic/Celts whose original territories ranged from Lancashire in the south, and northward to the North Bank of the "River Clyde" in Scotland.

Waugh has been found through development in Ancient Lanarkshire David Waugh of Lanarkshire, and Robert Waugh of Heap being a separate branch of the clan by abbreviation rendered homage to  King Edward I of England on his brief conquest of Scotland in 1286. The Waughs of Heap or in another tongue Hope in Wilton, and of in Roxburgshire, held their lands from the 13th to the 17th centuries. Both branches from this border clan had significant rolls in border life. _____Search Marches or March (territory) we'll find there to be some gentlemen refered in this site as holding that title, Marquess, Marquise which renders a county but as to the afford as the boarder and territories in such a length. This Marquess is of French origin  and is described somewhere on this page. 5:32 P.M. 12-19-2010

12-17-2010 2:19 P.M. This entry is from History of the city of New York Valentine, David Thomas 1801-1869 go to www.toquod.lib.umich.edu The information here consists of parts from pages 253 through 262  Edward Hyde, commonly called Lord Cornbury, a son of the Earl of Claredon. He arrived in N.Y. city  1702. His countenance was at once given to the anti-Leislerian Party. He was not liked and owed much to the city by which some residents even set loans to him which he neglected to pay. It got the government of England's attention and he was superseded in 1708. John, Lord Lovelace, Baron of Hurley was appointed to the government in spring 1708 but did not arrive until December 18. His administration was not destined to long continuance, as in May, the next year (1709 he died of a disorder contracted in crossing the ferry, at his first arrival in New York. In June 1710, Brigadier Hunter arrived in N.Y. with a commission as governor of the Province. He was a native of Scotland. He led an expedition to where Canada  now is to be in an incrouchment with the French. It did not go well and they did not contact the French in this time of war, and headed home. The result of the expedition now leaving New York in a much worse debt then previous. The next Governor was William Burnet Esq. who arrived in 1720, September. Governor Hunter remained in N.Y. until 1719 when his state of health and family affairs called  him to England. The new governor was a son to Bishop Burnet who was well celebrated. He married Miss Van Horn. The trade traffic was part of the first settelment, which the community was connected to the Indian Traffic in the Country. We will find that even though the foreign European's entering and accumilating a  mass population that the Indians found the wilderness of yet still an abundance of fur and game. This found them yet with materials for a worthy trade with the Europeans. The French occupying north of the American Colinization were well connected to this operation, and their settlements were more remote then those of N.Y. It was the practice ofcourse for the French to purchase their goods in N.Y. By custom all goods of Indian trade came from England through New York, and the only "advantage to be desired was that of a monopoly of the direct trade with the Indians instead of a Partially intermediate one through the French. It was evident that by  refusing to sell English goods to French trading the latter would be greatly crippled in their operations, and many of the Indians would be deverted from inter course with them. p.257 and pages up to 261 describe N.Y.'s youth to go out from N.Y. to trade with the Indians, canoe's were used alot. After much trading through the wilderness staying out for a season, ripend the mind and changed the appearance, the very charecter of the countenance of these demi--savages, for such as they were seen of their returning, sedate, lofty, collected and seemed as masters of themselves and independent of others. The policy of Governor Burnet in excluding the French trade, drew upon him the apposition of several of the New York merchants, (led by Mr. DeLancey) whose trade was directly affected by the measure, and who endeavered, by various schemes, to induce the government in England to direct the appeal of the act. They were unsuccessful at the time, but being a powerful interest in the city, they led an opposition to Governor Burnet, which finally succeded in procuring a majority in the assembly; and so far harrassed his government that, at his wish, he was relieved from the charge of  the province, and transferred to Massachusetts in 1728. In the year 1729 the act prohibiting the French trade was repealed; but the wisdom of Governor Burnet's policy was afterward admitted, when its results were better appreciated. P.262, which starts with  Chapter XIX describes Public Affairs from the year 1728-1750. The Governor is John Montgomerie and here is where my 7th great uncle comes in. James DeLancey (1703-1760) most of the DeLancey family or that of that name seem very quiet through colonial administration, I suppose having the ultimate power will proceed to this factor, although there are some DeLancey's and their associates who have in a very different charge and notice of public affairs, especially when things are'nt going as planed. 3:26 P.M.

It had been well represented, also, in its military forces, and in the judicial, legislative and executive positions in the colony of New York. 

During the troublous times immediately preceding it, many of its members were active in public affairs, and were aware of the duplicity, and deliberate breaches of faith on part of the representatives of some of the colonies in their dealings with the mother country, and the bigotry and inherent disloyalty of the Puritan element, which constituted one of the greatest difficulties  in the way of a peaceful settlement of the questions at issue.

They were, however, in sympathy with many of the demands of the Colonists as a whole, and not only joined, but led them, in some instances, in their protests against such Acts of the London parliament as seemed to them to be either oppressive or unjust, and on the other hand, endeavoured to secure a reasonably honest adherence, on the part of the Colonists, to the oaths of allegiance which they had taken, either individually, or through their representatives, as a _p.2_ condition of the granting of the charters to each Colony, by the Crown.

The deLanceys fully appreciated too, the resourcefulness and fighting qualities of the colonists, a large proportion of whom were as much at home with a rifle as with a plow, for they had led them successfully against both the French and Indians, and realized how much the nature of the country would favour them in the event of the struggle, which seemed imminent. Yet when the Revolution broke out, they, with but one notable exception, through not of British, but largely of French and Dutch descent, remained loyal to the oaths they had taken to that Crown, under which, nearly a century earlier, their ancestor, the first American representative of the family, had sought and found refuge from religious persecution.

During the war they took an active part on the side of the Crown, made great sacrifices in its behalf, and were valiant in the field. As a consquence they suffered much through wilful destruction of property, and were subjected to great indignities and inhuman treatment at the hands of the rebels.

After its close they, and a number of adherents of the Royal cause, especially those who were their close friends or relatives by marriage, were mercilessly persecuted by those in authority, an Act of Attainder was passed against them, and their property confiscated. This action, while allegedly taken in the interest of the new government, was, in reality, largely to satisfy the envy and rapacity of those whose birth, social standing circumstances were less fortunate than their own.

Even Sabine, in his attempt to defend their banishment, and incidentally, the confiscation of their property, (an act unparalled in the history of civilized nations, and one that has left an indelible stain on the early history of what is now a great country) pays  respect to their reputations when he says:

"If they remained at Liberty, their characters and modesty rendered their council of vast service to their own, and of course vast harm to the opposite party, amid the doubts and fears which prevailed, and had a direct tendency to porlong and embitter the contest. It  became necessary to secure them either by imprisonment or exile."

Of these matters much has been written in the histories of the war and its time, in those of the counties in the State of New York in which their princely homes were situated, and in those of the Province of Nova Scotia to which some members of the family came. Also in many other publications including the magazines and newspapers of the period, and of later years in both countries.

But the attachment of the family to the British Crown did not end with the cessation of hostilities, nor the signing of the Treaty of Peace. On the contray the British military files exhibit a record of subsequent service in its armies, ending only with great European War of 1914-1918, that those of few others can equal, and without which, the family history, remarkable as it otherwise is, would be robbed of much of the lustre to which it is entitled, yet I cannot find this record has been more than lightly touched upon, and then only in a desultory way, or in connection  with some individual  biography.

One of the purposes of this sketch is, therefore, by incorporating it with such other family history as I have been able to gather, to  make some slight amends for this neglect.

It is most fitting that this should be undertaken by some Nova Scotian, and dedicated to the memory of those particular members of the family who selected this province for their new homes, and who remained in it regardless of the privations they had to suffer and hardships they had to endure; and, moreover, took for many years after their arrival, an active and prominent place in its  affairs.

Some few of their descendents, it should be pointed out, are still living within its borders. D.A. Story "A Romance of a Great Family"

Author Lacey Baldwin Smith////'.'\\\\The Duke of Buckingham fed two Hundred guest in his great hall on Christmas day; Sir Edward Montague, a mere social upstart, dispenced food to 1,200 who begged at his door; and the Duchess of Norfolk customarily sat down to a table set for twenty and served as her  first course two boiled capons, a breast of mutton, a piece of beef, seven chevins, a swan, a pig, a quantity of veal, two roast capons, and a custard. The bounty of the rich man's kitchen was an  economic necessity, for everybody from the household staff to the beggars in the street ate the crumbs from his table. The land was rich and the fields were "fat, friutful and full of profitable things", and though the methods of distribution were unjust by modern standards, no one in England starved.

Catherine of Aragon her nephew as the most powerful sovereign in Europe he controlled the silver mines of Peru, the markets of the Netherlands the military might of Spain and the destinies of Italy. Henry VIII wanted a divorce from Catherine to marry the Anne Boleyn, but it may appear getting permission from the Pope was of yet to be anticipated. Henry VIII recieved his answer as the pope refused Cardinal Wolsey the grant and authority to decide the divorce case in England, but he did send Cardinal Compeggio to  open hearings. By late spring, however, Clement VII had decided to "live and die an Imperialist," and he dispatched  secret orders to Campeggio to "decide nothing, for the Emperor is victorious and we cannot afford to provoke him." In July he commanded Henry's case  to rome, and the court's ultimate decision was a foregone conclusion when in August France and Spain signed the Treaty of Cambrai, leaving Italy to Charles, and Wolsey to face his outraged master. Henry's reactions were ruthless and immediate. Cambrai was signed on August 3, 1529; the Cardinal was jettisone on October 9; and by November Henry had taken the first hesitant steps toward sundering the ancient and constitutional ties with Rome and establishing an independent Church of England.

Barrack-Master General from 20th August, 1799, to his death. His record followed John DeLancey the reputed natural son of Barrack-Master General Oliver DeLancey is supposed to have been born in New York in 1776. He was however educated in England and entered the British Army  as ensign in the 20th regiment 16th April 1795, transferred to the 17th Dragoons as Cornet, 10th February, 1796, lieutenant 28th December of same year, captain 17th Leicester 14th May, 1801, captain, 20th Jamaica Dragoons, 25th June, 1803, major 25th same date, and died in Egypt in 1807. He appears to have acted as Assistant Barrack-Master General to his father at various times between 1799 and 1807.

Phila DeLancey the third daughter of Brigadier-General Oliver and Phila (Franks) DeLancey. Married 29th December 1774, the Hon. Stephen P. Gallway but died without issue, and the baronetcy passed to the Payne's, through the marriage of Margaret Gallway to Ralph Payne, 3rd Baronet as Payne-Gallway. The Hon. Stephen P. Gallway was at the time of his marriage one of His Majesty's council for the Island of Antigua.

Charlotte DeLancey* the fourth daughter married after the death of her father. Sir David Dundas, K.B. Commander-in-Chief of the  British Army. (18th March, 1809 to 26th May, 1800) and Privy Councellor of Great Britain. He was considered the greatest military tactician of his age, and his record, one of the most interesting and romantic of the British Army. They had no children. Jones in his "History of New York during the Revolutionary War states that when Charlotte DeLancey took flight from "Bloomingdale" on the night  that residence was burned by the rebels, she carried with her her brother's child, an infant in arms, and held it safely to her lap the whole time. This could have been none other than he who afterwards became Sir William Howe DeLancey, although the date  of his birth is given as 1778, that is unless the year given for the birth of his sister 1780, is wrong and she was the elder child. Authorities differ as to the age of Sir. William Howe DeLancey at  the time of his death.

Maria DeLancey daughter to Oliver & Phila. Married Robert Dickson  a United Empire Loyalist who after his arrival in Nova Scotia became High Sheriff of Annapolis County.

The side of my Fathers Family came here from France in 1686 about the same time King James the 2nd created New England as the Dominion of New England. Etienne DeLancey arived in New York and began his lucrative mercantile business. He married into the Courtlandt Family and as a wedding gift was given some property at 54 Pearl Street New York. In 1700 Etienne (Stephen) built a home on the site with yellow bricks from Holland, it was considered a large house for its time probably according to neighbors. Etienne was also a money lender around this period. He built ships and it is probable that Captain William Kidd Vesseled some of them. Back then when two had married the dowery of the female was intended to be half the worth of the husbandry. Along the years Etienne became know in English as Stephen DeLancey. When Etienne left the France estates he reached Rotterdam, and from thence crossed over to England. There he took the oath of allegiance on March 11th 1686, and obtain an "Act of Denization" from  King James II. Soon afterwards he sailed for the English  colonies in America, and landed in New York on the 7th June, 1686. He took out letters of denization in New York, also,  under Governor Dongan's hand and seal, on 7th July 1686, and on 7th September 1687, took the oath of alligiance under the Colonial Act of 1683. Denization is an obsolete process in English Common Law, dating from the 13th century, by which a foreigner- (notice the similarity in Seignuer), -became a  denize- (notice the similarity in citizen), -gaining some privileges of a British subject, including the right to hold  English Land, through Letters Patent. Denization fell into  disuse when Statutory Mechanisms for Naturalisation developed. Letter Patent: They are a type of Legal Instrument in the form of an open letter issued by a Monarch or Government, granting an office, rights, monopoly, title, or status to a person or to some entity such as a  corporation. He became very wealthy  and was considered the wealthiest man in America through  land and monies. The DeLancey Property of land consisted of 339 acres of lower Manhatan there may be some considerations concerning ventures with others accumilating land as well. This emenced to form the 1st street grid in America which had been the 339 acre farm. This Denization and Letter Patent in issue and use by DeLancey may have resulted in their obtaining land in Nova Scotia. During the close of the Revolutionary War.  There may be description of the use and legal status of it as the departure or as in another term evacuation. Reviewing the standards of the Letters Patent by Denization it would be essential to head northwards to Nova Scotia. They were in deed in the pursuit of agian government standards. Now to be finally unionized in some degrees as the United States their property in New York City and perhaps other places such as Upstate New York was left to the Government as where other confiscations were sold at auction to the well whatever bidder came around.

The first of the name whom there is authentic record was Guy deLancey (1) Ecuyer Vicompte de Laval et de Nouvian (or Nouvion), whom in 1432 held of the Prince Bishop of Laon the fiefs of Laval and Nouvion, villages and territories a few miles south of the city. His wife was Anne deMarcelly (2). He had a son John (3), who succeeded in 1436; he, a son also named  John (4), who succeeded in 1470, who was a deputy to the States General of Tours in 1484 and present at the battles of Fornoue and Revenna, he a son Charles I (5), who succeeded in 1525 and a daughter, Isabeau, (5a), who married the Seigneur deBarenton. I'll have to research and find other brothers and sisters and of course that will show the children. I will also seek the wives names of the two John's and those whom are not yet mentioned. This Charles I gave, on the 16th of May, 1525, to Louis Bourbon, Bishop and Duke of Laon, his acknowledgment  of the feudal tenure of the fief entitled 'le four bonier de Laval' a dependency of the Duchy of Laon. He married/twice: 1st to Nicola St. Pere (6), by whom he had one child (8) a daughter, married to Antoine Pioche (9) of Laon. 2nd to Marie deVilliers (7) by whom he had two sons, Charles II (10), and Christophe (13), created Baron deRaray. I derive from this Charles the second which goes Jacques and Pierre and his son Jacques of Caen then to Etienne _ English version _> Stephen. p.6 of The DeLancey Book "A Romance Of A Great Family" 9:51 P.M.

 12-7-2010_My connection is of Etienne's son Peter then to his son Lieutenant-Colonel James DeLancey "The Outlaw of the Bronx" and  Sheriff of Westchester County his father was also High Sheriff of Westchester County as well as Stephen DeLancey Peter's first son. This position was held before the  Revolutionary War outbreak. My next grandfather the son of James is Peter 3rd his son is stated as Oliver 7th his son is George his son is Arnold Holbert DeLancey and after my fathers birth of the same name they became Sr. and Jr. My Middle  name George derives from the husband of my mother's sister.  My dad also wanted me to have the middle name George, I guess there was a compromise it may be after all as one recieves another's name in most cases as far as the middle  name that person becomes the Godfather, it may be that my father's recommendation was of my great-grand-father who as we know by now would if anything be a Godfather in Heaven  all is well for years to pass for then they both would be  amongst the religion. My father claimed to be a Protestant my mother was a Catholic. I am just religious and being so carry a large format of cabability. We may see this through this site on some particular writings as I describe certain religions. I am a firm beleiver of God and understand the writing in which describes God is authentic and catergorized as a form of  history, which is called a Bible. Before the Bible there were writings as well and perhaps came from different parts of the world. Long ago many would travel in search of their ancesters who would for many years leave their founded places in charge of to seek another place. We then see that many carried on through names of as whom others had the same. We also seem to reflect alot of what has been done (in theory and thinking that is) we will always do this and describe our talents through writings as to achieve circulation of another and the balance of mention. God my estimation of the term God may be derived from a gathered abundence of people whom at one time before passing had described many things. These things could be of culture, the making of something that would carry on. For  these many years it is perhaps so that the ancesters would have the same name and set forth on the same project as the previous. When now the multitude being about will have to be the description and lesson of those that were. In all matter and perhaps tribe or family the relation would be called as is,  names were provided. And then through these teachings and obediances were the making of new things again, now perhaps in the form of writing. We may see things as Law and or Order; my calculation so far may be that since the description of  names and perhaps character were in abundance it was time  for a balance in lesson. Thus to describe all in the matter of time and aquaintance the name God was suited to the life of existance. Then we have our Squire or network of distance relation who would culture their naming as Reason Expresses Leadership Inviting Greatness In Our Need < "Religion". That is so far my theory of God and Religion. I also think that Nothing Is The Most Important Thing In The World. As Is. While another is doing nothing when something is explained the one thing of the others importance is respect. Something will allways come from nothing. It is expected as to why I also feel in business an asset is one of the most important things and in a society if run as a business we are in fact in usher of being an asset. I just thought it would be something to be considered. 9:47 A.M.

Etienne (Stephen) DeLancey and Ann Van Cortlandt married January 23rd, 1700. They had ten children they resided in New York at the corner of Broadway and 54 Pearl Street. It was built by Stephen my seventh grandfather in 1700, New York City. The land on which this house was built was given to his wife as a bridal present by her father, (which he himself may have had a house there as well). Etienne brought in from Holland yellow bricks for its construction. It is the oldest house still standing (1926) in the City and is used as a Museum. It was occupied by Stephen deLancey until he built a larger mansion on Broadway, just above Trinity Church. This was removed in 1792 to build the City Hotel and the site is now occupied by the Boreil Building. (and is noted as the decade of the 1920's) This information is taken from a book by D.A. Story. The DeLancey's.... "A Romance of a Great Family" from  p. 15 --  and continuing., The first mentioned house came into possession, after Stephen removed from it, of his youngest son, Oliver deLancey, about 1757. It was then occupied by Colonel Joseph Robinson, who was one of the firm of DeLancey, Robinson and Co. Later it became the store, and probably, to some extent, the warehouse of the firm. In 1762, the house  was sold at auction to Samuel Francis or Fraunces and was opened at "The Queen's Head" or Queen Charlotte Tavern", named after the Queen of England, and was, for a long time, one of the most popular in town. The New York Chamber of Commerce was organized in it in 1768, and John Cruger, whose son, John Harris Cruger, married one of Oliver de Lancey's daughters, was its first president. In 1844 the New York Yacht Club was organized in one of its rooms. It is now owned by one of the patriotic societies and carefully looked after. This 54 Pearl st also placed other governmental offices such as the ones held by that government of America then to be the United States. One of the most important offices was held there from time to time was transfered to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania then to, the District of Columbia, Washington D.C. I shall note here at another time what offices were originally held at 54 Pearl Street New York.

During the 1800's these families were into building homes as much as I am told, my research continues. It is to interest that a DeLancey family who used the de and De in their name most of the time are from  Provenctown Cape Cod and were an esentric family. It is also interesting and I will seek acknowledgement of these relations, and we have Philipe DeLano of Massachusetts who arived 1621 aboard the Fortune. It seems I have seen the name of Peter DeLancey during the sixteen hundreds in New York although maybe this person was in travel or it could of been sir name DeLanoy. At the time of finding, I made a print out, I did not have a flashdrive to hold data at the time and since then I lost the material, it was kind of fuggie looking anyway and is perhaps why I could'nt tell the last part of the name as -noy- or -cey-. I will perhaps end up upon it again it was from a list of persons doing something concerning either trade of merchantilism or with land. So there was definetly movement. .10:21 A.M. ADDITION 12-7-2010

"The family belongs to the; Isle of France" or Isle-de-France, France. The old French province of which Paris is the capital, and to that part of it adjoining Picardy, anciently, and sometimes still, termed the ''Laonnois'' from the chief city of Laon, for centuries the city of the Prince-Bishopric or Duchy of Laon, and to-day the capital of the Department of the 'Aisne'.

He inherited the Laval title through his marriage on 22 January 1404 to Anne de Laval. As daughter  and sole heir to Guy XII de Laval. Anne was "dame de Laval", and one of the contitions of the marriage was that any children born to it would bear the name and arms of Laval. (The same condition had already been applied to the marriage of Emma  de Laval with Mathieu II de Montmorency.) Jean de Monfort renounced the name and title he had been born with to take up the name of Guy XIII de laval, better to associate himself with his wife Anne's power.

I shall go to Providence Rhode Island and seek Genealogy from the L.D.S. Church a Division of the biggest Genealogy Building in the World, at Salt Lake City Utah.

12-7-2010 9:01 A.M. E.S.T. I researched the name Guy from House of Names. Guy is a name that came to England in the 11th century, lived in Gloucestershire. There the name, however refers to the district of Guise in France. (Allow me to say one of the names here came first either the place name or the personage name) my search continues as well, as yours we may find it here on this site Anciently DeLancey. The name may include variations as Gyse, Guise, Guys, Guy, Gysse, Gyss, Gise, Guyse, and many more. There are probably female settings as well. Guy first found in Gloucestershire as Lord of The Manor of Elmore, and descended from Sir William Gyse. It is believed  that Sir William first held the Manor of Highman from Gloucester Abbey but by the marriage of Anselm Gyse to Magotta de Burgh (Burke) daughter of the Earl of Kent he acquired the Lordship of both Hingman and Elmore in Gloucestershire.

 12-10-10 6:02 P.M. E.S.T. Claude, Duke of Guise was the first Duke of Guise 1528 he was born as Claude de Larraine, duc de Guise (20 October 1496, Chateau de Conde-sur-Moselle died 12 April 1550, Chateau de Joinville was a French aristocrat and General.

Louis the Pious and the Debonaire was King of Aquitaine from 781, he was the 3rd son of Charlemagne and Hildgard. Ruler of the Franks.` search Louis the Pious at wikipedia. When I do ancestry research and other history I usually get 'information' from that site and its free. His sons are Lathair I, Pepin of Aquitaine, Louis the German and Charles the Bald. He had two wifes Emengarde of Hesbaye and Judith of Bavaria. His 2nd son Pepin I was his successor as King of Aquitaine. Charlemagne  also called Charles I was King of the Franks as Predecessor to  his son who was King of Aquitaine and that being in some case as Guyanne. We can learn that the connections of these place names and personage are of close relation. Meaning Guyanne came first, Aquitaine, then the ruling of the Franks. Charlemagne means Charles the Great, aproximate birth  around 742-or-724 January 814 he was also Emperor of the Romans from 800 to his death 814 he conquered Italy and was crowned 25 December 800. He is the son of Pepin the Short and Bertrada of Laon a frankish Queen. ~ Pepin the Short or the Younger, rarely the Great was the first King of the Franks 752-68 of the Carolingion dynasty. His father is Charles Martel. His brother is Carolman. Bertrada of Laon is daughter to Charibert who is son to Pepin II brother of Martin of Laon. Pepin II is  Pepin of Herstal is the grandson and namesake of Pepin I the Elder by marriage of Pepin I's daughter Begga and Ansegisel,  son of Arnulf of Metz. Pepin of Herstal also called Pepin II and Pepin the Middle. ~ Begga was the daughter of Pepin of  Landen,  Mayor of the Palace of Austrasia.

I found Pepin may resemble the terming king, I will try and  find where that was and confirm it. (attached 12-12-2010 4:30 P.M. Eastern Standard Time

Loire Valley is known as the Garden of France and the craddle of the French Language: This info- is taken from Wikipedia. It  is also noteworthy for its architectural heritage, in its historic towns such as, Amboise, Angers, Blois, Chimon, Nantes, Orleans, Saumur, and Tours, but in particular for its castles, such as the Chateaux d'Amboise, Chateau de Chambord, Chateau d'Usse, Chateau de Villandry and Chenonceau and more, particular its many cultural monuments, which illustrate to an exception degree the ideals of the Renaissance and the age of the Enlightenment on western European thought and design.

The Templars as Bankers: As bankers they could vary from making loans and looking after valuables to running the royal treasury, as in France. The Templars held a treasury though were not actually considered as a bank. They moved money and or valuables "more" than anything. Money held by them was not invested nor was it pooled, but remained in its owners strong box within the orders treasury, and could not be accessed without the owner's permission.

All religious orders were used by lay people as a safe deposit  for valuables, and were asked to lend money when lay people needed cash. The word Lay derives from Anglo-French Lai  (from Late, Latin, Laicus, from the Greek Aaikoc, laikos of the people from Aaoc, laos, the people at large this comes from laity and comprises all persons not in the clergy. A person who  is a member of a religious order who is not ordained legitimate clergy is considered as a member of the laity. Layman is a person who is a non-expert in any given field of knowledge this over the years shifted definition from Laity. Also both terms in which have the same origin refering to "Common People" I  found in wikipedia the free incylopedia on the internet "common" meaning "unholy" " unclean" and similar). The related verb laikoo meant "to make commom", "to desecrate". So Lay People are all the above and would at first of origin be  common people. By law one would not try to change law or desecrate it because that was up to the way a law was  changed. From there we have status and knowledge. It is affordable to say through Art Economics History that a Common Layman Person would be involved in making part of law by adding a new to the well being of the people, perhaps an idea or invention.

Kings were using the order as almoners, treasurers, and money carriers. The order would travel quite a bit so they developed ways of storage, transfer and collection services in order to meet the ownerships recommendations. This was also a form of security as where one might get robbed. Castles were prown to being sacked, through money transfers this made the realm appear to have ordinance and pleasantness throughout itself. But only time would tell. Early in history a traveler would carry their belongings with them, these people could be of any range of prosperity and would usually land in particulr places for conduction. This order has been true to the sence of travel by order. A king or king's priority would travel with a certain abundance and be acompanied by one to several of personage, may have likely been in order of a situation excepting council under reasoning its tendency yeilded, or just security. completed research a file taking at 1:53 p.m. 12-4-2010 it is now 6:50 P.M.

 12-16-2010 6:38 P.M. E.S.T.  The siblings of my direct line: Peter and Elizabeth (Colden) DeLancey. This next entry is of Peter's older brother JAMES DELANCEY 4TH, THE ELDEST SON  OF STEPHEN DELANCEY, AND HIS DESCENDANTS. Born in New York City Nov. 27th, 1703. He was educated in England, and in Law at the Inner Temple, London. "he was a member of the New York Council 1729-31, Judge of the Supreme Court 1731-44.  and Chief Justice* 1744-60 " In 1730 he drew up the 'Montgomery Charter' for the City of New York, and for his work received the Freedom of the City, and it appears to have been  a metal to that distiction and was the first person to be so honored of it. "He was appointed Lieutenant-Governor, Oct. 27th, 1747, but Governor Clinton, some of whose acts he had criticized, withheld the King's commission until 1753. "James DeLancey presided at the first Colonial Congress that year, granted the charter to King's (now Columbia) College, but held it out of deference to the opposition of a section of the community, until May, 1755. "In that year (1755) Governor Sir Charles Hardy arrived, and DeLancey resumed his place on the bench. On Hardy's departure for Louisbourg DeLancey resumed the Lieutenant-Governorship, which he held until his death on July 30th, 1760. *Appleton state 1733-1760. I am only for now going to put his wife and children. I will add the childrens family members on the next page titled -dynasties-of-art-economics-history- Below this the next entry will be of Oliver DeLancey ~ Peter's younger brother. There is alot of  information of Oliver to the left you will find his sum up of properties to the English Government. Now with James. "He married Anne Heathcote eldest daughter of Caleb Heathcote, Lord of the Manor of Scarsdale Mayor of New York, and member of the Council, and had four sons and  four daughters, all of whom were prominent in the social and business life of the city." He was buried in the centre aisle of Trinity Church, New York. /#1. James 5th, 1732-1800 who married and had issue. /#2. Stephen 4th, 1734-6 May, it says here 1975, hym i'm thinking 1775? married to Hannah Saskett d.s.p /#3.  Heathcote, died young and before his father. /#4. Susannah 2nd. b. 18 Nov. 1737, d. 1815 unm. /#5. Maria 2nd. b. 1767 married Sir William Walton 3rd, and had 5 children (see note)  d. 18th Aug., 1796. /#6 Anne 4th, 1745-Dec. 1st, 1817 married Hon. Thos Jones d.s.p. /#7. Martha 1st, 1751-1769, d.s.p. /#8. John Peter 1st, July 15th, 1753-Jan 30th, 1828 married Elizabeth Floyd and had issue. Right here amongst the Floyds and Jones and one marriage of the Jones to the Floyds the elder of the Floyd and father to the daughter to be married to a  Jones insisted that since the Jone's were marrying all of his daughters that this time and any time later also it was a garantee that the names 'sir name' and to go on to it, would be thus as Floyd-Jones combined. The DeLancey's married into the Watts, Floyds and Jones in the 17th,18th, century in America just based on the information I have as of now for all I know their probably still hooking up. A DeLancey Floyd-Jones was born of that marriage in the 19th century the connect will be found through this site. The Kennedy's are also related, this is through the Family of Watt. This marriage is of Peter's branch. John Watt Jr. married Jane DeLancey Oct. 2nd 1775 deLancey now becoming a Watt their daughter married the son of Archabald Kennedy bearing the same name. The Kennedy's  being Earls and having Royal blood brought even more status to the new world.  For at least 3-4 centuries England, Scotland  and Ireland new of the Kennedy name. History has been a subject of research for me since 2005 only because of accessability and or availability of the computer system. I've allways been interested though its for sure happening now. Since right from the get go that is mid summer 2005 I knew of the Kennedy and DeLancey relationship. My connection to this family in record of France, New York, Nova Scotia, Massachusetts was found mid summer of 2005. The year is unclear but it appears in the 14th century a John Kennedy of Dunure and Cassillis married the heiress of the Carrick Earls. This Kennedy clan originated by branch of Celtic Lords of Galloway and if we go down on this column we'll find Waugh  my Grandmothers relationship deriving around the same area, low Scotland Northern England they were Border people, perhaps another term of Marcher Lords. Besides that posible connect we'll find out anyway that we DeLancey's and Kennedy's were already related. I dug deep and within this site I'll take 'note of the names & connection, it will be on some of the next pages. I got this information from Kennedy Earl of Carrick go to Clan Kennedy --- The Earl of Cassillis is also good. I had this information in 2005 and 2006 which in that year kept up on the facts, though not knowing then of my connect to the 17th & 18th century French Connect to New York to Nova Scotia to Massachusetts and of course some of the family went to  England as noted. There could of been some wandering somewhere around the world finding family or other connections, homesteading was surely a part of the previous years. We had a Chief-Justice of the Bahamas and there's a DeLancey Town there, resident are bearing the name as of  now. The wife of the DeLancey Governor of the Island stayed living in Nova Scotia and from time to time she traveled as he did to see each other and confirm on business as well. *8:41 P.M. 12-16-2010

 12-16-10 9:04 P.M.  OLIVER DELANCEY 1ST, THE THIRD AND YOUNGEST SURVIVING SON OF STEPHEN DELANCEY 1ST AND HIS DESCENDANTS. A Banneret of Quebec of the United Empire, he was born in New York City, Sept. 16th, 1718. He was brought  up in his father's counting-room and became a noted New York merchant. He had remarkable decision of character and  enjoyed great popularity. He served in the Assembly* 1756-60; was active in the prosecution of the war against the French and Indians, and raised a regiment in Connecticut for service in New York State, for which he received the thanks of the New York Assembly. In 1758 he was appointed to the command of the  New York contingment of 5,000 men, as colonel-in-chief, and joined the expedition against Crown Point under Abercrombie; supported Lord Howe in his attack on Fort Ticonderoga, July 8th, 1758; and received, for the second time, the thanks of the New York Assembly, on this occasion "for his great services and singular care of the troops of the Colony while under his command". *On 31st March, 1756, he with Beverley Robinson and John Cruger were commissioned Paymasters and Commissioners to the forces in the pay of the Province of New York. (Bulletin N. Y. Historical Society, July, 1926) He was a member of the Colonial Council 1766-1783, Receiver-General 1773-1776, and colonel-in-chief of the Southern Military  District of the Province. He joined Earl Howe, on his landing with the British troops on Staten Island, and in September of that year (1776), raised and equipped, at his own expence, three regiments of Loyalists, each 500 strong. This force became known as DeLancey's Battalions. These were originally intended for the defence of Long Island and their colonels and lieutenant-colonels were: 1st Battalion, Colonel Oliver DeLancey 2nd. Lieutenant-Colonel John Harris Cruger 2nd Battalion, Colonel George Brewerton. Lieutenant-Colonel Stephen DeLancey 3rd Battalion, Colonel Gabriel G. Ludlow. Lieutenant-Colonel Richard Hewlett. (Col. Brewerton died during the war, Colonel Ludlow and Lieutenant-Colonel  Hewlett were ordered to be apprehended and secured for  voting against sending delegates to the Provincial Convention.* Colonel Ludlow was afterward the first Mayor of Saint John, New Brunswick; he had been one of the first Vestrymen of Trinity Church, New York). During the first winter (1776-1777) they were at Oyster Bay, Huntingdon and Brookhaven, all points on Long Island, but in 1779 the first and second battalions defended Savannah Georgia and won laurels in the defence of Fort 96, near Camden, New Jersey, against General Green. In 1783 the three battalions were re-formed into two, the second under Colonel Ludlow, and the ship "Martha" with a detachment of it and a corps of Maryland Loyalists, 174 all told, aboard,  was wrecked near Yarmouth, N.S., and 99 lives were lost. The losses of the brigade during 1779-1781 are said to have been about fifty percent, and there were only a few over 100 of all ranks to embark for Nova Scotia. He was made senior Briadier-General in the Loyalist service, and during the war, was in command of the defences on Long Island. He was attained and all his property confiscated. He went to England in 1782, and after a brief sojourn with his family in London went to  Beverley, Yorkshire, about 9 miles from Hull, where he resided until his death, which occured in his own house in that town on the 27th October (Jones says Nov.) 1785. He was buried in one of the Choir aisles of the magnificent Cathedral of Beverley, a slab in the pavement marking his grave. Edward Floyd DeLancey, in the New York Genealogical Record of October 1784, states that he visited at Beverley, some years before  that, three granddaughters of Brigadier-General DeLancey, the then surviving children of his eldest son, Stephen, Chief-Justice of the Bahamas and who died Governor of Tobag and its dependencies, and sisters of Sir William H. DeLancey, who was killed at Waterloo. 9:55 P.M. 12-16-2010

 12-17-2010 9:18 A.M. The following is the inscription on the mural tablet to Brigadier-General DeLancey in one of the transepts of the Cathedral at Beverley, Yorkshire: "To the memory of "Brigadier-General DeLancey" "A native of the  Colony of New York, who possessed one of the most extensive and truly valuable estates in North America, which, from his loyalty and attachment to his King and Country, he readily sacrificed at the commencement of the late rebellion. He had formerly served against the French and was wounded at Ticonderoga. As soon as the hostilities commenced in America he raised a Brigade consisting of three regiments and continued in the command thereof till the conclusion of the war when, with his family, he was compelled to seek an asylum in Great Britain and resided to this Town". He was severely critized by Sabine for alleged ill-treatment of General Nathaniel  Woodhall, or Woodhull, whom with a part of his forces, he had captured. Sabine made a grudging and unsatisfactory partial withdrawal of the charge when his statements were refuted, but Appleton not only absolutely discredits the statement, but shows clearly, to an unprejudiced mind, that on the contrary,  he saved him from ill-treatment being meted out to him by the soldiers who had caught him trying to escape. The historian Jones, says of him, "In 1776 he (General Oliver DeLancey joined General Howe on Staten Island and had that officer profited by his honest advice the American War, I am bold enough to say, would have ended in a very different manner to what it did."  His widow died at Chelsea, England, in 1811, aged 90 years.  His residence, *Bloomingdale, was burned by the rebels in November, 1777, and his wife and family spent the night in the woods, now Central Park, in their night-clothes. The evidence taken before the Commission appointed, by the British Government in July, 1783, to inquire into the losses sustained, and the services rendered by persons who had suffered in their rights, properties and professions during the American revolution, in consequence of their loyalty to His Majesty and attachment  to the British Government, reported that "Brigadier-General DeLancey's property, which was confiscated, was estimated as worth 100,000 pounds." He married in 1742 Phila, daughter of *Jacob Frank of Philadelphia, and had seven children, two sons and five daughters, viz.:

*The property, known as "Bloomingdale" was later in the possession of Charles Ward Apthorp, who died there in 1797. +He is called Hon. Mr. Frank in a letter from James DeLancey  to his sister Mrs. Harris dated Crooked Island, Bahamas, 14th March 1803. NOTE: At the "Mischianza" held in Philadelphia in 1778 on the occasion of the departure of Lord Howe after being superseded, a tournament was held, and six Knights of the Blended Rose--The Hon. Capt. Cathart, chief, threw down the gauntlet proclaiming Miss White, and others, to excel in wit, beauty, and every accomplishment, those of the whole world, while those of the Burning Mountain, with Capt. Watson as Chief, claimed those attributes for Miss Frank and the ladies of the Burning Mountain, their motto being. "Love and Glory". This "Mischianza" is referred to as the "Meschianza" in the "Wagoner of the Alleghanies" by T. Buchanan Read p. 57. The Knights of the Blended Rose were dressed in Scarlet and White and those  of the Burning Mountain orange and black.

The  title will be called The DeLancey's "A Romance of a Great Family" by D.A. Story The nieces and nephews of Peter and Elizabeth (Colden) DeLancey. 10:26 A.M. This entry of 12-17-2010 of The DeLancey Book  Pages 72, 73 and 74

From p. 78 & 79 DeLancey Book Oliver's children Anne DeLancey 6th the eldest child of General Oliver 1st, and Phila (Franks) DeLancey, then the wife of lieutenant-colonel John Harris Cruger 1738-1807, was in her father's residence "Bloomingdale" when it was set on fire by the rebels, and burnt in November 1777, and with her mother and others of the family and Miss Elizabeth Floyd afterwards the wife of John Peter DeLancey, had to spend the night in the woods, now Central Park, in their night clothes although the weather was very cold.

Lieutenant-Colonel Cruger was a member of one of the oldest families in New York. He was born there in 1738 and succeeded his father as a member of the Council of the Colony, and at the beginning of the revolution held besides, the office of Chamberlain of the city. He had a brilliant military record in the war. She Anne (deLancey) Cruger shared with Lieutenant-Colonel Cruger the perils of war at Fort 96. Later she was rescued from a sinking British ship by a French man-of-war under Compte d'Estaign and was well treated. She was on board when the Fleet bombarded Savannah, S.C. where her husband was in command.

D'Estaign landed her on the Coast after the Fleet and the Rebel Army were defeated.

She married Lieutenant-Colonel Cruger in 1777 and died at Chelsea in 1822 aged 78, having been born in 1744.

Susan DeLancey 4th the second daughter of Brigadier-General Oliver and Phila (Franks) deLancey married in New York, October 23rd, 1770, Lieutenant-General Sir William Draper K.B. and Governor of Minorca, a distinguished soldier and writer,  and by him had one daughter who married John Gore, 17th March 1790 and died, a widow at Hot Wells in July 1793,  having no issue.

Drapers military record is an exceptionally fine and interesting one, and it can hardly be considered out of place.

Stephen DeLancey 6th the elder son of Phila and Oliver. Born in New York City in 1748, was educated in Europe and practiced law in New York. He joined his father's battalions as  Lieutenant-Colonel of the second, and served with distinction throughout the war. At its close, the full fury of the revolution was directed against him. His property was confiscated, and he was forced to leave New York. He was one of the number of Loyalists the came to Annapolis Royal, Nova Scotia, in 1783.

He married Cornelia Barclay ( that is stephen) daughter of Re. Henry Barclay, rector of Trinity Church. New York, and sister of Mayor Thomas Barclay who married Susanna deLancey seven children are said to have been born to this marriage but I have only (D.A. Story 1923-30) been able to find trace of six 1. William Howe deLancey (afterwards Sir William), b. 1781, d. 1815 - Magdalen Hall No Issue.

He was elected a member of the House of Assembly in 1784.  He took his seat and was sworn in, 16th November of that year, and his name is recorded one of the divisions that took place,  as Colonel de Lancey. In November 1785 he was in York, England, in connection with the estate of his father who had died intestate. He is shown on the lists as a member of the House of Assembly, until March 6th, 1789 when it was recorded as vacated "as he had obtained an office in the Bahamas." I cannot find (D.A. Story ) his name mentioned in any Journals of the House, either as taking part in the debates or the divisions during the years 1786, 1787, or later. Apparently, he was absent from the Province preliminary to his final departure for the Bahamas, of which he was appointed Chief Justice although another authority dates that appointment as early as 1782. In 1796 he was appointed Governor of Tabago and its dependencies.

It is only after persual of such works as the "Official Despatches of the Duke of Wellington", by Lieutenant-Colonel Gurwood or "Reminiscences of a Staff Officer", by Lieutenant-Colonel Basil Jackson, however that the estimation in which his services during, the Peninsular War were held by the "Iron Duke" and his insistance on having him as Chief-of-Staff during the Waterloo campaign, can be appreciated.

Musketeers in Britain ~ Red Coat : American Revolution. In the United States, "Redcoat's associated with British soldiers who fought against the colonists during the American Revolution. It does not appear to have been a contemporary expression-accounts of the time usually refer to "Regulars" or "The Kings Men" abusive nicknames included "bloody backs" (in a reference to both the colour of their coats and the use of flogging as a means of punishment for military offenses) and "lobsters" (most notably in Boston around the time of the Boston Massacre). It is not until the 1880's that the term "redcoat" as a common vernacular expression for the British soldier appears in literary sources, such as Kipling's poem "Tommy", indicating some degree of popular usage in Britain itself. From the modern perspective, the retention of a highly conspicuous colour such  as red for active service appears inexplicable, regardless of  how striking it may have looked on the parade ground. It  should be noted, however, that in the days of the musket (a weapon of limited range and accuracy) and black powder, battle field visibility was quickly obscured by clouds of smoke. Bright  colours enhanced  morale and provided a means of distinguishing friend from foe without significantly adding risk. The vegetable dyes used as far as the 19th century would fade over time to a pink or ruddy-brown, so on a long campaign in hot climate the colour was less conspicuous that the modern scarlet shade. The Redcoat by no means was exclusive to the British Army. The entire Danish Army wore red coats up to 1848 and particular units in the German, French, Austro-Hungarian, Russian, Bulgarian and Romanian armies retained red uniforms until 1914 or later. 9:18 p.m.

The dynasty's rule in the Holy Roman Empire was interrupted by the Wittelsbach twice. With the death of Emperor Sigismund, the dynasty died out and was succeeded by the Habsburgs. Cognatically the house was a branch of the Ardennes-Verdun dynasty ~ And this dynasty is used as a label on the dynasty centered on Verdun who dominated Lotharingia in the 11th century. The founder of the dynasty was Godfrey, known as the Captive. He was a son of Count Gozlin, brother of bishop Adalbero of Metz, and Uda, a daughter of Gerard, Count of Metz, and Uda of Saxony. Godfrey was the brother of Adalbero, Archbishop of Reims. Count Gozlin's parents were Wigeric, Count Palatine of Lotharingia, and Cunigunde, the Ardennes-Verdun dynasty was closely tied  to the houses of Ardennes-Bar, Salm and Ardennes-Luxembourg.

Duchies of Upper and Lower Lorraine ~ List of rulers of Lorraine ~ These rulers held different posts under different governments over different regions. The first rulers of the region were kings of the Franks whose kingdom was called Lotharingia. The Latin construction"Lotharingia" evolved overtime into "Lorraine" in French, "Lotharingen" in Dutch and "Lotharingen" in German. After the Carolingian kingdom was absorbed into its neighbouring realms in the late ninth century, dukes were appointed over the territory. In the mid tenth century, the duchy was divided into Lower Lorraine and Upper Lorraine, the first evolving into the historical Low Countries, the second became known as the Duchy of Lorraine and existed well into the modern era.

Baldwin I, Count of Flanders b. 830's died 879. Married Judith  of Charles the Bald and Ementrude, daughter of Odo I, Count of Orleans, in 842. She died in 888. Charles married Richilde of Provence, who was descended from a noble family of Lorraine.

There are four servi, and a mill of two shillings (solidi); a wood a mile (leurra) i long and half wide. It was worth six pounds, now a hundred shillings (solidi)". Of Turchil, the Saxon Lord, had five manors, in Herefordshire, and Lasne succeeded him in all. There may have been some blood relationship between them. Lasne at the same approximate date claimed the lordship of Radnor then held by the king, declaring to the Commissioners that when William  fitz Osbern, Earl of Hereford, gave him the lands of Turchil,  Ids-ancestor (antecessor), he also gave him Raddrenove. The name of the Norman lord of Brockworth should be written Hugh I'Asne, or Hu<di the ass. "Whether it was a nick name to himself, or had been inherited from an ancestor, there is nothing to  shew-show. Its derrivation is certain that he  appears in the survey as Hugo Asinus, as well as in other documents. He had obtained four manors in this county;  perhaps Gloucestershire, and twenty in Herefordshire as well as others elsewhere.

In 1477 The Holly Roman Emperor Maximillian I married Mary, the last Valois Duches of Burgundy, 19 years later their son Philip the Handsome married Joanna of Castile, daughter of King Ferdinand II of Aragon and Queen Isabella I of Castile. Joanne (also known as Juanna the Mad) was sister to Katherine (of Aragon), the first wife of Henry VIII of England. Following the death of her brother and two sisters, Joanna became heiress to the Spanish Throne. Joanna and Philip's son (Maximillian's grandson) Charles united these possessions, when he became King of Spain (as Charles I) in 1516 and Holy Roman Emperor in 1519 (as Charles V). He ruled over a vast Empire. Now France had the Hasburgs on three sides as its neighbors, Spain to the south, the County of Flanders to the north, and Franche-Comte to  the east.

Guy DeLaval:~ Laval, or Laval Guion, is a town of some importance  in the south of the Province of Maine. At the time of the Conquest  the Seigneur de la Val was Guy II, who, in 1066, when considerally stricken in years, confined certain grants made to the Abbey of Marmoutier by a son named Jean who at the age of three and twenty perhaps 23 had assumed the manastic habit in that establishment. Haman his son, was at that date the father of Guy, afterwards the third of that name called the young perhaps Guy the young and the Bald perhaps yet again another Guy the bald, and both of them  joined along with Hamon the forces raised by William Duke of Normandy for the invasion of England.

Haman received for his services lands, which were inherited by his descendents down to the reign of John, and his son Guy was  rewarded by the Conquer in 1078, with the hand of his niece Denise, daughter of Robert, Earl of Mortain and Cornwall.

Hamon succeeded his father Guy II, in the lordship of Laval, the year after the Conquest, and died in 1080, when his son Guy became Sire de la Val, and susequently losing his wife Denise, remarried with a lady named Cecile supposed to have been a kinswomen of the Counts of Mayenne. He died in 1095, and was buried at Marmoutier beside his wife.

The fact that neither the name Drago de Brevere or De la Val, father or son, is to be found on the Roll of Battle Abbey is tolerable evidence of the dependence to be placed upon it. 9:14 P.M. 12-6-2010 Roll of Battle Abbey is what it was called, search 'Roll of Battle Abbey' added 12-12-2010  4:58 p.m. e.s.t.

 2:13 P.M. E.S.T. 12-14-2010 DeLancey Book p.46 STEPHEN DELANCEY 5th (113), the eldest son of Peter (85) and Elizabeth (Colden) DeLancey 2nd son of Etienne and Anne, was born at West Farms, N.Y., December 10th, 1738. He married Esther Rynderst  (114) of Albany, N.Y., and died at Annapolis, Nova Scotia, May 20th, 1809. He was a lawyer by profession, was commissioned Clerk of the City and County of Albany, which then comprised all the Province west of the Hudson River and north of Ulster County, and later was Recorder of that City. He was a member of the New York Committee of Safety in 1775.* Appleton states that on the 4th June 1776, the King's birthday, he was dining with the Mayor and a number of Loyalists, when he and others were seized and thrown into prison. A few days later they were taken to Hartford, Connecticut where they remained in confinement on a charge of disaffection, until liberated on December 26th by order of Governor Trumbull. It is claimed by  Savary that he did not take up arms, but remained in New York until 1783, when he moved to Annapolis, Nova Scotia. On the other hand, Adj. General Stryke in his "New Jersey Volunteers (Loyalists)" says of Stephen DeLancey (Peter's son), "he was of the illustrious family of that name in New York. It does not appear why he accepted a commission in a New Jersey regiment as lieutenant-colonel of the First Battalion, but he was commissioned as such September 5th, 1776, while he was a prisoner. On the evening of June 4th, 1776, he was celebrating the birthday of George III, and being loud in his expression of loyalty he and his party were arrested by the patriotic citizens of Albany, and given into the safe keeping of Governor Trumbull of Connecticut, who seems to have taken charge during the war of such Tories. After his release he was again commissioned lieutenant-colonel of the First Battalion New Jersey Volunteers (Dec. 21st, 1781) and so continued until the close of the war. After peace was declared he removed to Nova Scotia." His wife, (Esther Rynerts) was born in Albany, N.Y., in January (8th?) 1741. and died at Annapolis, N.S., May 6th 1806. There were at least three children born of this marriage as shown by the will of their grandmother, Elizabeth (Colden) DeLancey, viz., Peter, Elizabeth and  Cadwallader. D.A. Story  has no definite trace of either of the sons,* but Elizabeth (203) only daughter of Stephen DeLancey (113). She died Nov. 15th, 1858. Nothing really definite can be said of his life after his arrival  at Annapolis, due partly to the fact that his cousin, Colonel Stephen DeLancey, also a lawyer by profession, reached  there at the same time and remained for some years, and it is, perhaps, impossible to tell whether the Stephen DeLancey shown as one of the grantees of crownlands for settlement, or for public purposes, or as one of the church warden of St. Luke's Church, is he or his cousin, though it was frequently said the latter is given his military title when mentioned.  There has been much confusion in regard to them for which Sabine appears to have been, at least, partly responsible.

JOHN DELANCEY 5th (115) the second son of Peter 1st (84) and Elizabeth (Colden) DeLancey (85), was born at West Farms, Westchester Co., N.Y., in 1741. he was High Sheriff of Westchester Co. and succeeded his father as a member of the House of Assembly in 1769, was one of the committee of fifty, 1st to 19th May 1774, to correspond with the other colonies respecting the imposing of duties on entry articles this by him in creation was called the Declaration of Dependence consisting of fifty-one signatures. On May 1st 1775, one of the Committee of One Hundred (100) after the Battle of Lexington, and same day one of the deputies to the Provincial Congress in 1776, and was an addressor of Lord Howe. The British Army List shows a John DeLancey as cornet in the 17th Dragoons 10th March, 1776, Lieutenant 28th December 1776, and Captain 4th May, 1801, and as he was the only one of the name, old enough at the time to bear arms and whose record is obscure, it appears to have been he. He died in 1820. He married Dorothy daughter of Parker Wickham and had one daughter. Elizabeth Ann deLancey who was married to Governor Joseph C, Yates and had two daughters.

ANNE DELANCEY, 1743-1818 married John Cox 1728-1750

PETER DELANCEY 2nd (117), the third son of Peter(84) and Elizabeth(85), was born at West Frams, N.Y., and served, on the British side, throughout the Revolutionary War, and after the disbandment of the troops in 1794, appears to have gone to Cataraqui, Ontario, where, however, there is only to be found a record of his arrival with a number of others. He was a lawyer by profession and unquestionably held a commission in one of the Loyalist regiments, but beyond this no further information is available. Subsequently, however, he went to Charleston, South Carolina, and practiced Law there. he is said to have been killed in a dual.

ALICE DELANCEY, (121) the second daughter and fifth child of Peter(84) and Elizabeth(85) married Ralph Izard (122) who was born near Charleston, South Carolina, in 1742, and died near there 30th May 1804. He was educated in England and, after graduating at Cambridge, settled in London in 1771 after his marriage to Miss DeLancey, but took the side of the Colonies during the War. In 1777 he was Commissioner to Tuscany, and later became a Senator for his native state. Some children were born of this marriage. There was a son Henry and a daughter Sarah, who married, in 1773, Lord William Ampbell, son of the 4th duke of Argyle, who was then a captain in the Royal Navy, but later became Governor of Nova Scotia, 1766-1773, and of South Carolina 1776-, to the close of the war, and had issue.///4:02 P.M. 12-14-2010

ELIZABETH DELANCEY 1st, 1750-1775 died unmarried

JAMES DELANCEY 6th, fourth son of Peter and Elizabeth. This is my 6th Grandfather and Grandmother Martha Tippett who died in 1827, aged 73 years and had ten children. My 6th grandfather died May  2nd, 1804. They had six sons two, at least, of whom served in the British Army, and four daughters. He was the colonel of the celebrated mounted corps of 50 men, selected from the elite of the country in Colonel Hewlett's militia regiment, which was gradually expanded into a small battalion and was nicknamed by the rebels the "Colonel of the Cowboys" the "Outlaw of the Bronx" and the :Colonel of the Refugees" .He was born at West Farms, New York, Sept. 6th, 1747, and held the office of High Sheriff of Westchester County, N.Y., at the outbreak of the war, having succeeded his elder brother John in that position in 1769. This position had also been held by his father before him. He was elected a member of the House of Assembly in that year, also in succession to his father and brother.  He came to Nova Scotia in 1783, was elected to the House of Assembly for Annapolis County and took his seat January 26th, 1790, was made a member of H.M. Council in 1794 and resigned June 20th, 1801,  owing to ill health. At one time, when the rebel troops had their quarters in the vicinity, he took refuge in a old pine tree and  for two weeks, each evening after nightfall, his sweetheart, Martha Tippett whom  he afterward married, took provisions to him and eventually helped him to escape. After the war they were married and came to Nova Scotia and settled near Roundhill. His ill health may have been the resulting of poison administered to him by a female slave, whom he had foolishly told that he had provided in his will that she would be freed at his death, and who took this means  of hurrying the longed-for event. Mrs. Chas. Starratt of Upper Clements has in her  possession a very interesting souvenir of the Colonel. It is in the  shape of a silver mathematical instrument case, of a design that must now be very rare. It bears the following inscriptions, exquisitly engraved: Obverse: "Elizabeth De Lancey" Ob. Sept. 23, 1784 Aged 64" Reverse: "This memorial was bequested by the best of mothers to her son, James DeLancey: And on the bottom: "When you receive this the parent who gave it to you will no longer be on earth. May you  live on earth so that we may meet in Heaven" The old pine tree referred to above is still standing in the Bronx Park", writes concerning this tree: "Where gentle Bronx clear winding flows The shadowy banks between, Where blossomed bell and  wilding rose Adorns the  brightest green, Memorial of the fallen  great The rich and honored line,  Stands high in solitary state De Lancey's ancient pine" ........ This next  poem is by me David George Delancey and if  I may add that when I got this DeLancey Book "A Romance of A Great Family it was after I wrote my Poem, it was created between December 27th 2007 and January 27th 2008 I got this DeLancey Book from a Micro film at the Salt Lake City Utah Genealogy Building summer of 2010.

~>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>A Visit From Long Ago<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<~ ~~<<<<<<<<<<<<<This is by David George DeLancey>>>>>>>>>>>>>~~ In memory of a person whom represented New York in many way's, the time period was 1703-1760 his name is James DeLancey the  Chief Justice and Governor and Lieutenant Governor also Presiding Judge and a poem in his matter. Here I set afloat about the waves Though the caves are of mean the bank is clean and bring the  straight in us in what we seen Though the straight is of courage like the flow of our homage A pole we may be for a flag is of thee For  the attachment about it may there be a prancement to clout it As of the stars like above in a gentle way may we stay to play in meant of day As of like the course of heaven may we quethin For if it's above may it be like a glove Though the formation of a nation to inherit is about us the ocean in its motion Of course we share and bearous the crevice in which we serround The bounderies in our founderies are like the endless of our stay The bank to the right is of the square to bear May it be above as to love when declare If I leave to see what is about in the right without spite may I return of spite to be of right The stars so close a toll may it be as the pole The straight of the want may it be of staunt For a flag we have in right of flight is of  the night with nothing so bright

Now for James DeLancey's conclusion by D.A. Story found in The DeLancey's "A Romance of a Great Family" p.52 When he and his wife came to Annapolis in 1783 they had only one child, born in New York in April of the Year. The rest of the ten children were born in Nova Scotia, on the old homestead property near Roundhill. The Annapolis river, a beautiful stream which flows through the Valley between the two ranges of mountains, skirts the estate. The Rev. T. Watson  Smith in his "The Slave in Canada" states that in 1784 he (the  colonel) had six slaves, and this is confirmed, as according to the returns from Clements and Moose River, Annapolis County, N.S., Lieutenant-Colonel James DeLancey, of the disbanded 1st Battalion New Jersey Volunteers,? brought with him to Nova Scotia six slaves, and records of St. Luke's Church, Annapolis, show--three Blacks---Peggy, Frances and Mary, to have been baptised there in July, 1793, and they are recorded as belonging to Colonel DeLancey. At the September term (1801) of the Supreme Court at Halifax was heard  an action against John Umlah of Saint Margaret's Bay, in connection with the loss of a slave, one "Jack", who had run away after a brief service with Umlah at St. Margaret's Bay, had gone to Halifax, where he found employment with William Woodin. Colonel deLancey evidently did not regain posession, for according to the inventory of his personal effects after his death there remained (June, 1804) "a negro woman , at present disordered in mind, valued at 40,30,25  and 20 respectively, and a boy at 18.

The earliest names of it ' the King's book' and 'the great book of Winchester' kept in the royal treasurey. In the twelfth century it was by English and displade for their Norman Lords requested by deferential account. The survey was commissioned at Christmas  1085, when William the Conquerer held court at Gloucester. It appears that someone else other than King William had advised the book to be taken in account. My search for this continues.

 12-19-2010 9:17 A.M. "GREAT DOMESDAY BOOK" The entries here are people associated with the King's Realm and England. Above are the name places also filed in the Great Domesday Book. There is also a Little Domesday Book which continues in the order written of the first book. Here are some definitions concerning the time of this great and ancient period. VILL -The unit of local administration as it lowest level; Geld for instance was levied on the SHIRE, HUNDRED and vill, in that descending order. Not necessarily a village in the modern sense; a vill represents an area of land rather than the site of a specific settlement, and may contain more than one settlement. Occasionally used of urban sites noted in the Domesday Book which were not fully-fledged BOROUGHS. 'PENNY-, PENCE' The only actual coin in circulation in the eleventh century, 240 pence were struck from one pound of silver. DENARIUS-se penny. DOMESDAY MONACHORUM- A survey collected within an existing manuscript (now in Canterbury Cathedral library) compiled from Domesday Book or from the 'original returns' for the use of the  Archbishop and monks of Christ Church, Canterbury. BLANCH, BLANCH FARM -see Farm. FARM -Never an agricultural unit, as in modern usage. A render, originally in kind, but by the eleventh century frequently commuted to money, NIGHT'S FARM: the amount of produce which would support the king and his retinue for one 24-hour period, paid by certain groups of royal estates. BLANCH FARM:(Latin blanca, white) royal dues paid in money ASSAYED for its purity ('white silver','white pennies') and usually reckoned as 21 shillings to the pound of silver instead of 20. Land or office held AT FARM: in effect, leased at a specific rent in return for which the tenant, known as the 'farmer', received the profits of the estate or office. FEALTY ( from Latin fides, oath, fidelitas, loyalty). The oath sworn by a VASSAL to his LORD in the ceremony of VASSALAGE: usually sworn on holy relics or on the Gospels. The duty owed by a  Vassal to his Lord including tributary service, aid and counsel. LORD  (Latin Old English hlaford.lord: literally 'loaf-maker'). The lord is the holder of the HOMAGE of his VASSALS, to whom he gives protection and land in return for support. The lady (Old English hlafdige.'loaf-maker') is the lord's wife. LORDSHIP: In Domesday Book, dominium (Latin). Territory or personnel under the direct authority of a LORD DEMESNE: (Latin dominum: Old French adj. demeigne, owned). Land 'in LORDSHIP' whose produce is devoted to the LORD rather than his tenants: MANORS held in the LORD'S personal possession as opposed  to those granted to his men; that part of an individual estate exploited directly for the LORD'S 'home-farm'. Also expressed as INLAND (Old English). as opposed to WARLAND. ~~BOOKLAND (Old English bocland). Land to which the title is a royal charter; the essential factor in bookland tenure is freedom to dispose of the land as the holder wishes. WARLAND:(see wara). land which owes service (as opposed to the exempt DEMENSNE or INLAND): thus land held by peasants and tenants as opposed to their LORD. WASTE~~In  Domesday Book ,wasta (Latin; poss. Old English waest, uninhabited, deolate; Old French wast). Land which does not RENDER dues either because  it has been physically devastated, or because the dues have been attached to some other MANOR, or because they have been withheld. Some manors described as 'waste' are nevertheless credited with values and with population or other appurtenances in Domesday  Book. Land on which GELD was not paid is also sometimes described as 'waste' MINSTER (Latin monasterium, monastery, church). The mother-church of an area, often in origin a small monastery. The territories assigned to minsters were usually larger than modern parishes. ~RAPE~~(derviation uncertain). One of five (later six) subdivisions of Sussex, each with its LORD and CASTLE. Similar to  the Kentish LATHE. REVELAND:~ (from Old English gerefa, REEVE). Meaning uncertain: perhaps land set aside for the use of a REEVE. REEVE+~_ In Domesday Book. praepositus (Latin; Old English gerefa). An administrative officer: used for the king's officials in charge of royal estates, manorial officials of other LORDS in charge of estates: village representatives who oversaw the performance of manorial duties. COUNT- (Latin comes, companion). A continental title, denoting a man in authority over a specific area (county) with ad-ministr-a'tive  and jud-i'cial po'w'-er,s used to translated the English EARL. COURT~ (Latin curia). Apart from its judicial use, the word also denotes the residence of the LORD (see HALL and MANOR) to which dues were paid.

 7:52 P.M. Making note of end letters ~ ster ~ er ~ ( ric - previously in the middle ), Old, ~ and there are several y's, and again with the 'a' added to agne. "in" is used somewhat effortly, and ham, I noticed William d'Ecouis has the last four letters as Louis, ugh is also used in Waugh and the "u" and "g" maybe fitting letters as of "L" being silent somewhat. To look at older "L's" at the begining of words, and with along the usage of it considered in names, for instence de - in French represents ~of~ or ~the~ as in same cases so would L, but perhaps stronger as where ~to and or from~ as of ~to go there~ or ~from there~. Try and say DeLancey by putting the tip of the tongue at the upper outer portion of the mouth and pernounce the "a" as ~~yarn~~, and it may be some folk pernounced the ~~cey~~ as as a couple of ways such as with a long ~c~ like she or sh e y  could be an 'i'  involved there, or even try a sneeze with the tongue going back up. Another forming letter I found at the end of some of these names above in the Domesday Book is "win'.

The importance of Charlemagne or Charles the Great to the  European nobility and Emperor of the Western Holy Roman Empire and as King of the Franks, Charlemagne, amongst other achievements, stemmed the flow of Muslim expansion into Europe. He did this by campaigning in Spain and establishing a military zone or frontier between Muslim Spain and Frankish Gaul. In time a reconquest was undertaken spreading south from Leon and Castile into Al-Andalus. The retaking of the Iberian peninsula was not achieved until 1492, this event and the marriage of Philip and Isabella completely over shadowed another event. Christopher Columbus's discovery of America, which because it did not show immediate lucrative rewards was dismissed as a rather interesting distraction.

The town of DeLancey, New York. Formely Lansingville. It was given its present name DeLancey in 1872 because New York State already had another Post Office of Lansingville. The name is taken from that of James DeLancey Verplanck, who owned the land in the vicinity. The History of Delaware County.

Territory: Latin territorium, from terra the earth. Noun_(plural territories) 1. a large "extent" or -tract- of land; a ~region~; a county; a (district). 2. A geographic (area) under control of a single ~(governing)~ "entity" such as {state} or municipality; an area _whose_ borders are determined by the scope of political power rather than solely by natural features such as rivers and ridges.

In a capability of junction between a colony set up and a pre-existing societal environment; A territory is the area between point A and point B. Point A could represent an acquisition. Point B could represent a Border. The existing party is the aquisition in notice or agreement of a colonial border. Search Aquisition and Border to find an ultimate reasoning. When in America a tribal area can become an aquisition in a settlement within a border. Territory may lay  between the two. This will give transaction to both parties. This example can be realized when a colonial party ventures an Island. The tribal matter or existing occupancy will seek trade through the territorial area. This will be in agreement that one ventured party may arive and set up store or in affiliation (a fort) to be recognized as a capability to supply necessities. In this agreement a fort may be considered as a mobile fort. Through this administration, a foreign can be applied. A good search for an example Admiralty would be 'Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, the fishing industries'. This is where the Admiralty came to be as the supportive governor when that title approuched land. In the event the authority of that northern area  was lapsing and thence how this title was given. We now have the colors of the Admiralty which in standard are represented on ship as rear and so on, I beleive there were of three White, Blue and Red  the  first two of higher importance. Try these two centuries 15th and 16th. This will be the forming of Admiralty of that area, perhaps more of Newfoundland. Europe was there in the 14th century as  well.

Territory can be seen within an oceans boundery. This is why for instence England considered different tacticts to tax, when other countries were trading within the territorial bounderies and  excluding the trade within England. At points of time not only a country's flag was flown aboard a ship, other self merchants traveled the waterways for trade. Ten miles or so within one's boardered territory can cause a great deal of loss in trade and 'commission'.

Search: Colonial Office The Lords of the Committee of Privy Council  ` appointed for the consideration of all matters relating to Trade  and Foreign Plantations. Added to that search can be DeLancey one  of them was associated with it in the 18th century. You may want to just investigate the term Plantations and how the term came to be.  It does in fact represent a colonized establishing. Lets see Plan-t-a-tion. Plow is a good one Pl-ow Pl-ant-ta-tion. Maybe not. Although in old literature the"A' has been used from its original meaning. By adding an -a- before a suffix{tion} will continue with a plural that will  allow a _denotation_ or a denote, something or someone of a better or more prestigious quality or status. "a" by itself frequently denotes.

Plantation as of Plan can be or is formal or informal. I would suspect mostly formal. So perhaps anything entering a formal condition "can" be called informal. As of a Forest where Robin Hood resided. He would steal from the rich to give to the poor. The King new of it; Robin Hood would mainly steal the King's tax's. The King informaly would have knowledge, that eventually the monies would be transacted and perhaps then the set formed tax would be paid, and some cases not. Nevertheless the money was like in bank holding, unless it was hidden or buried. Who would do such a thing. Interesting to know people have been burying money for years way before Robin Hood was to take control of the forest. Funny thing is when two people get together and aquire the funds it could be imagined as; since the money was out of sight then no-one knows of its existence. Thus would lead to tax evasion. Perfect definition of tax evasion, an informal sector, economic activity beyond the preview of government.

John (nickname Lackland or Softsword) was King of England from 6 April 1199 until his death. He may have disliked Robin Hood or portrayed himself as an ~enemy~.

Calender of Ancient Correspondence

Chateau de Comper: This castle located in Paimpont forset (former know as Broceliande), three kilometers to the east of the village of Concoret in the department of Morbihon in the region of Brittany, France. Conluence has derived its meaning as Comper, as like Quimper perhaps from the Breton word Kemper. Quimper was originally settled during Roman times A.D. 495, it had become a bishopric. It became the capital of the counts of Cornouailles. In the 11th century, the town suffered considerable ruin. In 1364, the  duchy passed to the House of Monfort. It is located on the edge of France; region Brittany; department Finistere in the north west part of the country. Countenances, Lassy, Avranches, Bayeux, Cherboug are just east of the Islands of Guernsey and Jersey. All of these named are nearest to the ocean except Lassy. The Chateau de Comper is about the same distance inland as Lassy.

Auch: Is a very ancient town. Auch derives from the tribe of Ausci. In Latin it is pernounced Awski, singular Auscus. Its language is of Basque. More information of Auch and the Roman conquest can be found at www.wikipedia.com/auch And as you will notice it also sits inland almost centered by the west and esat coasts of France in the southern part and is north from the boarder of Spain. This type of location may be a defence remedy to secure lands and lands end, and or the capability of land. land can be recognized as an invention. So to new comers it is very vulnerable.

Here is something that if you were around during black and white T.V. you may remember the Lone Ranger. I think he and his faithful companion were Kimosabe and Tonto. Back then the Indians used to put their ear to the ground to hear who was coming in the distance. Kimosabe is coming along and asks Tonto; whats going on today Tonto? gewiss man with big black horse women with big bell dress with one board buggy. Kimosabe asks now wait a minute how can  you tell all that by listening to the ground. No they just run me over.

 7-11-2011 Courtland ~ / Orioff Van Cortlandt / Stephen / Philip / Stephanus. Orioff, a Dutchman, arrived in New Amsterdam in 1638 and founded a dynasty which at one time owned 200 square miles of land. This land, formerly a Mohegan Indian hunting and planting ground, was purchased for a small sum from the British settlers. Van Cortlandt's were traders, merchants and shipbuilders, and they married into such families as the Schuylers, Phillippes, Livingstons, thus doubling their wealth and influence.

Orioff's son Stephenus, was appointed mayor in 1677, the first  native-born American to hold the post. He purchased a large parcel  of land from the Indians for Wampum that included six tobacco-boxes, six earthen jugs, one small coat, nine blankets and 14  kettles. Part of this sale included the Van Cortlandt Park consisting  of 1146 acres.

In 1748, Orioff's son Frederick, built the family mansion, which still stands near the high school. The family farmed the land and lived in the house until 1889 when they donated the property to the City of New York for use as a public park.

The Van Cortlandt mansion served briefly as a police station until 1896 when it was placed in the custody of the National Society of Colonial Dames which now maintains it as a museum. The flats were used as a camping grounds during the Revolutionary War and George Washington used the Van Cortlandt estates as headquarters at  various times. In 1917-18, the site was used as a combat training area, when doughboys dug and hiked through the woods, preparing for war in France.

Beverly Robinson's House. A wealthy colonist from New York, was a son of the Hon. John Robinson of Virginia, who was the President of that Colony. he is mostly remembered as the commander of the  Loyal American Regiment, a loyalist regiment in the American Revolution and for his work with the British secret service during the war.

Beverly married Susanna, daughter of Frederick Philipse, who owned an immense landed estate on the Hudson River. It is generally supposed that Susanna had been courted by George Washington as well. On the 23rd of September, 1780 Andre was captured and on  the 26th was conveyed a prisoner to Colonel Robinson's own house, which, with the lands adjacent, had been confiscated by the state, which Arnold had occupied as his headquarters, and of which Washington was then a temporary occupant. Both Robinson and Benedict Arnold were closely acquainted before, and also as of the knowledge to Sir Henry Clinton as of Arnold being a traitor. And it appears in a letter from Arnold to Robinson, the idea of going over  to the other side. Robinson was in character of witness to a possible innocence of John Andre after conviction. Sir Henry Clinton sent  three commissioners, in hope of producing a change in the determination of Washington.
