{55} Edward III Descents for William David Coleridge Smith (1883-1963)

Rev. Peter Smith (1651-1725) was rector of Winfrith in Dorset from 1679 to his death. He was admitted to Oxford University on charity, and his father was one Richard Smith of Leintwardine, in Herefordshire. Rev. Smith married very well, taking to wife Dorothy Bowman (d. 1733), the daughter of well-connected lawyer and M.P., Seymour Bowman of Harnham, Wiltshire (c.1621-1704, descended from Edward I), and Rev. Smith took the Bowman arms for himself and his descendants.  His grandson John Smith of Bucklersbury, London (1720-1791), was a member of Worshipful Company of Ironmongers, as was his eldest son John Paul Smith (1747-1804). John Paul married Grace Lodington (1755-1835) in 1780, and so began the close association between the two families. Grace's first cousin, Rev. Joseph Lodington, rector of Southwick in Northamptonshire, stood as godfather in 1784 to the couple's third child, then married John Paul's younger sister Joanna Maria Smith three years later in 1787. See Frederick Arthur Crisp's 1906 transcription of Bible entries from this 'Smith Family', in the 12th volume of his Fragmenta Genealogica series.

Rev. Joseph Lodington was, through his mother Anne Broade, descended from the gentry family of Hereford, seated at Sufton Court in Herefordshire. In 1823 his daughter Caroline Grace Lodington married her first cousin, Edward William Smith, who styled himself "esquire" and listed his occupation as "Fund Holder" in the 1851 UK Census, bringing to her descendants the line back to Edward III. It was Edward and Caroline Smith who first introduced the name 'Coleridge' into the family when in 1839 they made it the second given name of their fourth son Sidney, in honour of the late poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834), whose birthplace Ottery St Mary in Devon, was where the Smiths were residing when their fourth son was born. Sidney Coleridge Smith used his full name throughout his interesting life. He went to sea in 1859 at age 20 as a Second Mate on a Merchant Marine vessel, and continued for nine years, eventually rising to the rank of First Officer. When he left that career in 1868, he enrolled in Gloucester Theological College, and was ordained in 1870. Rev. Smith held the curacies of Long Ashton and Pitcombe, both in Somersetshire, and ended his clerical career as Rector of Rodney Stoke in Somersetshire. Apparently fond of his second name Coleridge, he gave it as a middle given name to two of his children: his fourth daughter Evelyn Mary Coleridge Smith (1878-1961), and to his second son and youngest child William David Coleridge Smith.

Born in 1883 while his father was curate of Pitcombe, William David Coleridge Smith, as his father had before him, chose the sea as a career, qualifying as a Second Mate in 1904 at age 21, then as a First Mate in 1909. Meanwhile, Rev. Richard Valpy French had retired to Mendip Lodge in Axbridge, Somersetshire, where he died in 1907. Axbridge is just five-and-a-half miles from Rodney Stoke, and the two clerics, Rev. Smith and Rev. French, both the same age, must have become acquainted. Rev. French was 67 years old when he died, having five years previous taken a much younger wife, Winifred Kekewich, 38 years his junior. Left widowed and childless at age 29, Winifred came to know the neighbouring Rev. Smith's merchant mariner younger son, six years younger than herself. The two married in 1913, William qualified as Master in the Merchant Service in 1915, and served in the Merchant Marines throughout the Great War. He moved into Mendip Lodge with Winifred, and it was there that their three children were born, and where they both passed away. Perhaps as a way to distinguish themselves from the countless families with the surname of Smith, William and his elder brother Arthur Lodington Smith gave to each of their children their own additional given names, so Arthur's children all became Lodington Smith, and William's children all Coleridge Smith, and today William's descendants use both Coleridge and Smith as their surname, often hyphenated.

WILLIAM DAVID COLERIDGE SMITH of Mendip Lodge, b. 17 Sept. 1883 Pitcombe, Somersetshire; d. 8 May 1963 Mendip Lodge, Axbridge, Somersetshire, yr son of Rev. Sidney Coleridge Smith of Rodney Stoke (1839-1926, descended from Edward III - see Generation A19 below) and Alice Stroud Barber (1846-1930); m. June 1913 Somersetshire, WINIFRED JOAN (KEKEWICH) FRENCH, b. 29 Sept. 1877 Notting Hill, London, bap. 24 Jan. 1878 St John Church, Notting Hill; d. 31 Dec. 1963 Mendip Lodge, widow of Rev. Richard Valpy French (1839-1907), and 2nd dau. of Sir George William Kekewich (1841-1921, descended from Edward IV) and his 1st wife Hannah Lovegrove (1838-1890), and had issue, one son and two daughters.

The following lines of descent from Edward III were first brought to my attention by British genealogist James R. Yeowell, a Lodington descendant, and it was his March 2014 post to the SocGenMed newsgroup which allowed me to work out William David Coleridge Smith's two lines of descent from that monarch.

Hereford Cathedral

B13) MARGERY HEREFORD, bap. 28 Feb. 1637 St Martin Church, Hereford; bur. Hereford Cathedral [*1]; m. 13 Apr. 1665 Holy Rood Church, Mordiford, Rev. THOMAS BROADE of Hereford, d. 1709, bur.

[*1] Per their M.I. in Hereford Cathedral (the inscription has been worn away, with only a few words decipherable in 1881): " .....Broade, ...and wife.....Vicar Choral," Rev. Thomas Broade and his wife Margery were both buried there, and it's very likely their son Rev. Francis Broade and his wife Anne were as well. The burials for Hereford Cathedral in this time period have not been published, or indexed in online databases. Luckliy, the Cathedral Library holds Bishop's Transcripts for this time period, which hopefully one day will make it online. In the meantime, researchers are welcome to comb through the bishop's transcripts in the Cathedral Library. I only had an hour to spare at the Library this past summer. I found the staff friendly and helpful, and the Cathedral itself is beautiful and well worth a visit.

[*2] James Yeowell has done extensive investigation into the Broades of Hereford Cathedral, and I thank him for sharing his findings with me. Rev. Thomas Broade's father Rev. William Broade was M.A., vicar of Westbury (previously vicar of Holmer), died circa 1660 -- he was also Vicar Choral of Hereford Cathedral (1633).

In my next blogpost I'll return to the Moores of Appleby Hall, and specifically to the Charles II descent for Rachel Esme Newton, wife of (Lancelot) Geoffrey Moore.

{54} Ruvigny Continuation: Issue of Louisa (née Buck) Kekewich (1811-1880)

Samuel Trehawke Kekewich
(1796-1873)
Louisa Buck, her husband Samuel Trehawke Kekewich, and their four children appear on p. 483 of Ruvigny's 1911 Mortimer-Percy volume. He clearly did not have contact with the family, as his account contains very little detail, and omits all but one of the six children of their son Sir George William Kekewich. William Fowler Carter (1856-1942) provides detailed evidence of the family's origins in his 1910 article 'The Kekewich Family' in volume 26 of The Genealogist. They derived their name from the Cheshire village of Kekwick, and their arms from those of the Wynnesbury family, with whom they married in the 15th-century, when they were settled in the Shropshire manor of Linley. Marriages to two consecutive heiresses in the early 16th-century brought them the manors of Catchfrench, in the parish of St Germans, Cornwall, and Bardfield Hall in Margaretting, Essex. The first of the family to be returned to Parliament was George Kekewich of Catchfrench (1530-1582), and he was also the first to marry into the Edward I bloodline, when he took to wife Katherine Courtenay, from the Cornish branch of that family seated at Wotton House, in the parish of Landrake. The senior line of the Kekewich family at Catchfrench died out at the end of the 17th-century, but a junior branch of the family, descended from Edward Kekewich of Trehawke (1561-1621), a younger son of George Kekewich the M.P. and Katherine Courtenay, flourished as merchants in London in the 17th and 18th centuries. Samuel Kekewich (1765-1822), a barrister from this branch of the family, bought Peamore House in the parish of Exminster, Devon, in 1810, and it was his son Samuel Trehawke Kekewich, who served in the House Commons 1826-30 and 1858-73.
Lewis William Buck (1784-1858)

After the death of his first wife in 1836, Kekewich was left a widower with seven young children, and  naturally he looked to marry again to help him raise his family. His second wife was the daughter of his fellow Devon M.P. in the Commons, Lewis William Buck. The Bucks were a mercantile family from Bideford who also were the lineal representatives of the Stucleys, a Devon family seated at Affeton Castle for centuries. After the death of Lewis William Buck in 1858, his eldest son George Stucley Buck assumed the surname of Stucley in lieu of Buck, and was created a baronet. The most comprehensive pedigree of the family is the 1887 'Kekewich of Catchfrench and Trehawke' one by John Lambert Vivian in his Visitations of Cornwall volume. Vivian names the four children of Samuel Trehawke Kekewich and Louisa Buck, but does not trace their descendants. The most recent account of the family is the 1969 'Kekewich formerly of Peamore' pedigree in the second volume of the 18th edition of Burke's Landed Gentry. It is much more helpful when it comes to the children of Samuel Trehawke Kekewich's second marriage and their descendants, but it also contains gaps. So my account below elaborates on and continues not only the account of the family by Ruvigny in 1911, but also that of BLG in 1969.
Moreton House, Bideford, Devon
LOUISA BUCKb. 25 Feb. 1811 Moreton House, Bideford, Devon, bap. 14 Mar. 1811 St Mary Church, Bideford; d. 11 Apr. 1880 Park Lane, London, bur. 17 Apr. 1880 St Martin Church, Exminster, Devon, dau. of Lewis William Buck (1784-1858, descended from Edward IV) and Ann Robbins (1790-1879); m. 9 June 1840 St David Church, Exeter, Devon, as his 2nd wife, SAMUEL TREHAWKE KEKEWICH of Peamore House, b. 31 Oct. 1796 Bowden House, Ashprington, Devon; d. 1 June 1873 Peamore House, bur. 7 June 1873 St Martin Church, Exminster, son of Samuel Kekewich of Bowden House (1765-1822, descended from Edward I) and Salome Sweet (1773-1844, descended from Edward I), and had one son and three daughters.

4) ANNE MAUDE KEKEWICH, b. 12 Aug. 1852 Peamore House; d. unm. 21 Dec. 1911 Sidmouth, Devon.

[*1] The only child of George Ormond Kekewich was Stanley Buck Kekewich of Deal, Kent, "inspector of taxes", b. 2 Oct. 1889 Bundeberg, Queensland, Australia, d. 8 Sept. 1964 Deal; m. 2 Sept. 1924 York, Amy Irene Lewis (1898-1990), dau. of Martin William Lewis of York, architect (1857-1945) and Amy Chapman (1867-1939), and had an only child, Fay Maureen Kekewich, b. 6 Mar. 1930 Lancashire, m. 1978 York, as his 2nd wife, Maurice Gordon Eagle (1925-2006), son of Cuthbert Gordon Eagle (1887-1970) and Eileen Miller. Fay Eagle, still living at age 85, is the last surviving descendant of Louisa (née Buck) Kekewich, to have been born a Kekewich.

[*2] Louisa is not included in the 1969 BLG Kekewich pedigree. She is not listed with the children of George William and Hannah Kekewich in the 1881 Census, so presumably had died by then, though I cannot locate an entry for her in the England Deaths Index 1837-1915.
Peamore House, Exminster, Devon
Peamore House was inherited by the eldest son (by his first wife) of Samuel Trehawke Kekewich, and remained the seat of his descendants until it was sold in 1948. It was interesting to trace these descendants of his second marriage, as they clearly can be considered of the upper middle class, rather than the gentry. After the passing of Fay (née Kekewich) Eagle (see footnote *1 above), the only living descendants of Louisa (née Buck) Kekewich, will be those of her granddaughter Winifred (née Kekewich) Coleridge Smith and those of her grandson Capt. (Lancelot) Geoffrey Moore.

Before I leave the Kekewiches and return to the Moores of Appleby Hall, I will cover the Edward III descents for Winifred Kekewich's second husband William David Coleridge Smith in my next post.

{53} Edward IV Descent for Louisa (née Kekewich) Moore (1846-1921)

Kekewich of Peamore Coat of Arms
When he inherited Appleby Hall in 1871, George John Moore was 28 years old and not yet married. The 4500-acre estate was generating an income of about £8400. This was a respectable estate, and the new squire of Appleby would go on to serve as Justice of the Peace and Deputy Lieutenant for Leicestershire, as his father and grandfather before him had. Three years after inheriting, he chose a bride from a family far more prominent on the national level.

"Proud and extravagant" is how Louisa Kekewich was described by Aubrey Moore, her husband's nephew who grew up at the neighbouring Appleby Rectory, in his 1982 memoir A Son of the Rectory. Though born at her father's county seat, Peamore House in the Devon parish of Exminster, Louisa was very much a city girl, like her own mother, Louisa (née Buck) Kekewich, who seems to have inherited the London residence in Park Lane of her parents, Lewis William and Ann (née Robbins) Buck. When thinking back to a ball held at Appleby Hall in 1910 or 1911, Aubrey Moore recalled, "The catering would for sure be done by Harrods or the Army and Navy Stores. Louisa Moore could do nothing without one or other of these stores." Louisa also insisted that her four children be born in the city: "They could not be born among the common herd of their own home but a house had to be taken in London, with doctors and nurses in attendance," he caustically observed.
Peamore House, Exminster, Devon, in 1742
Louisa had cause for some pride. Comparing the Kekewiches of Peamore House to the Moores of Appleby Hall in 1874, purely on lineage, they come up rather equal. Both families rose from the merchant class in the 17th-century to become one of the leading gentry families within their home counties (Devon and Leicestershire, respectively) by the mid-19th-century. But the Moores were eclipsed by Louisa's family when it came to prominence on a more national level: her father Samuel Trehawke Kekewich served in the House of Commons for 25 years, up to his death in 1873, the year before Louisa's marriage. Her maternal grandfather Lewis William Buck, who had died when Louisa was age 12, served as a Member of Parliament for the same amount of time. Her full brother George William Kekewich (1841-1921) had a distinguished career as a civil servant, would go on to be returned to the House of Commons, and received a knighthood, as did their half-brother, the judge Arthur Kekewich (1832-1907). It's possible, through his new wife's family connections, that George John Moore envisioned a career for himself that moved beyond the county level. But he was burdened with financial difficulties, due in part to Louisa either wilfully or unknowingly insisting on maintaining a lifestyle that was beyond his means. In about 1880 he rented a smaller place, Witchingham Hall in Norfolk, and attempted (unsuccessfully) to sell the Appleby Hall estate in 1885. Afterwards the couple returned to Appleby Hall to live, and remained there until George Moore's death in 1916.
George John Moore of Appleby Hall (1842-1916)

"Were it not for your mother's fortune I would not live here [at Appleby Hall] and you will recollect that I always told you that you would not be able to do so unless you acquired some money in some way," George John Moore wrote to his eldest son and heir Charles in the summer of 1914. At that point, Louisa's own fortune was about £70,000, but the squire informed his son in the same letter (transcribed in A Son of the Rectory) that Louisa's fortune was designated for their only daughter Elsie, and recommended that Charles sell the Appleby Hall estate when he inherited it. With her husband showing little desire to maintain the ancestral home of his family, it's not surprising that Louisa had even less motivation towards doing so. In their final years at Appleby Hall, the couple began to strip away whatever was of value contained in it. In his will, George John Moore left his wife all his own watches, jewellery, and gave Louisa carte blanche to select from Appleby Hall whatever she wanted of its contents within three calendar months of his death. Three months after inheriting Appleby Hall, Charles Moore wrote to his cousin, "I regret to inform you that never as long as I have Appleby will she [his mother Louisa] set foot in it or on it again. I have given orders to this effect and if she does, some lawyers will take measures to prevent her doing so." Appleby Hall was in a deplorable state, and it seemed to Charles that his parents had attempted to just let it fall down. "The whole matter is very sad, but it is not my fault and I might add that I should have thought that my Parents might have had more pride in the family than to have treated and left the property in such a state." In 1919, after the farm tenants refused his proposal to increase the rents, Charles Moore followed his late father's advice and sold Appleby Hall, ending 320 years of ownership by the Moore family. The new owner sold the lead off the roof of the Hall and allowed it to become ruinous. It was eventually demolished in 1937.

Charles Moore had married Lilian Gostling, the daughter of a cement merchant from the Surrey suburbs of London. Lilian was the governess at Appleby Hall to Louisa's two youngest children, and the lady never overcame her disappointment in this marriage of love made by her eldest son. In 1913 her second son Gerald married Gwendoline Hersee, a 35-year-old woman whose late father had been a secretary in a brokerage firm. It's clear from census details that Gerald's wife was from a respectable, albeit unremarkable, middle class family, just as his elder brother's wife was. Louisa "bitterly disapproved" this match as well, and so found no consolation in her last years in her two eldest sons. Her only daughter Elsie was regarded within the family "as rather a simple soul" and efforts to marry her off, both before and after the Great War, came to naught. Louisa did live long enough to see her youngest son Geoffrey, a decorated Army officer, marry into the gentry class, and provide her a grandchild in 1920.

Louisa was living in London when she wrote to her eldest son in January 1919, the coast of her home county of Devon was calling to her in her final years: "I think I shall go to the Victoria Hotel, Sidmouth, for the Spring ... I am not well nor strong." She died in Sidmouth two years later in 1921, aged 75, and is buried next to her husband in Appleby Magna Church, ironically enough resting for eternity in the village which she never much respected in life.

[*1] I cannot locate a marriage for Charles L.G. Moore and Lilian Gostling in the 1837-1915 England Marriage Index. Per Peter Moore's account in A Son of the Rectory, the couple was definitely married prior to World War I. Given the circumstances, it's very likely they eloped and married outside of England. The couple tried their hand at ranching in British Columbia(!!) the first few years of their marriage.

[*2] This is the most unusual occupation I've come across so far in the censuses. I picture John Samuel Thompson, pick-axe in hand, prospecting in the Klondike, though I'm sure the phrase must represent something completely different than my image.

{52} Ruvigny Elaboration: Henry VII Descent for George Moore of Appleby Hall (1811-1871)

George Moore of Appleby Hall 
(1811-1871)
The Moore family seated at Appleby Hall in the 19th century is thought to have sprung from the Mores of More Hall and Bank Hall in Lancashire, and Sir John Moore (1620-1702), Lord Mayor of London 1681-82, assumed the coat of arms of the Lancashire Mores when he was knighted. But the line can only be traced today to a Charles Moore of Stretton in Derbyshire (grandfather of the Lord Mayor), who purchased the manor of Appleby Parva in 1599. A very comprehensive online account of the Moores of Appleby is that of historian Richard Dunmore, which can be found on the Appleby Magna website. For the next 320 or so years, the Moores continued as owners of the manor of Appleby, and made its manor house Appleby Hall their home.

By the mid-18th-century, the Moores were well established in the upper levels of Leicestershire society, and began serving terms as High Sheriff of the county. But it wasn't until the early 19th-century that a member of the family married into the Edward I bloodline: and, rather unusually, the first marriage of the Moores into that bloodline was to a descendant of Henry VII. How, in 1810, old George Moore, squire of Appleby Hall, was able to secure the granddaughter of an earl as a bride for his 31-year-old son and heir, requires a bit of explanation. The key to such a noteworthy marriage was the bride's father, John Drummond, the fifth of his family to be Laird of Megginch Castle in Perthshire. His family had strong ties to Quebec, the province of Lower Canada that Drummond's father lived in from 1764 till his death in 1776. Drummond himself succeeded his father as a member of the Quebec council and deputy commissary and paymaster to the British forces in Canada until 1782, when he seems to have returned to Britain. Four years later in 1786, he succeeded his uncle Adam Drummond to Megginch Castle and the Lennoch estate in Perthshire, as well as to his uncle's Shaftesbury seat in Parliament. Being the new head of the family brought Drummond some social cachet, but he was in constant financial difficulties. He sold the Lennoch estate shortly after inheriting it, and so probably had sufficient cash on hand when he married Lady Susan Fane, the half-sister of the 10th Earl of Westmorland. It was a prestigious match for Drummond, not so much for the Fanes. Lady Susan's father had died some years before, and she was raised by her mother and stepfather Col. John Woodford, which helps to explain why she and her two younger sisters married outside of the peerage. John Drummond only enjoyed four-and-a-half years of marriage to his well-connected wife before she died as a result of giving birth to their second child and only daughter in 1793. Two years later, Drummond made over Megginch Castle to his younger brother Robert, and by 1802 had purchased Snarestone Lodge in Leicestershire from Col. Samuel Madden, an Irish officer prone to heavy gambling, the widower of one of the two co-heiresses to the property.

Once settled into Snarestone Lodge, it wasn't long before Drummond and his daughter came to the notice of the Moores at Appleby Hall, a mere two miles away. Since the Moores had evolved into one of the leading gentry families in Leicestershire, Drummond was assured they would provide his daughter a lifestyle similar in rank and grander in scale than what he had been able to give her. And so in 1810, Drummond's 17-year-old daughter Susan was married to George Moore, the 31-year-old heir to the Appleby Hall estate. History tragically repeated itself when the young Mrs. Moore, whose own birth had resulted in the early death of her mother, herself died at age 20 as a result of giving birth to her second child, a daughter who survived and was named Susan Drummond in honour of her just-departed mother.

Burke's Landed Gentry stopped tracking the pedigree of the Moores of Appleby Hall at the end of the 19th century. The family's last appearance in that series was in the 9th Edition of 1898. The most comprehensive pedigree of the Moores remains the 1909 Moore of Appleby Hall pedigree in Volume 16 of the Visitation of England and Wales series. Thankfully, historian Richard Dunmore, with the aid of George Moore descendant Peter Moore, have provided a detailed account of the family on the Appleby Magna website, linked to above, which allows us to trace the family down to the present day. My goal is to elaborate on and continue the descent of the family begun by Ruvigny in his 1903 Tudor volume, p. 485.

{51} Edward III Descents for Sir Walter Wrottesley, 3rd Bt (1659-1712)

Wrottesley Coat of Arms
The Wrottesley family, which can trace its line back to the Domesday Book, was seated at Wrottesley Hall, in the parish of Tettenhall, Staffordshire, for over 700 years, from the time of William de Verdon (d. 1242), who was the first to assume the surname Wrottesley, until 1963, when Wrottesley Hall was sold by the the 5th Baron Wrottesley (1918-1977).

The family first married into the Edward I bloodline in the late 15th-century, when Sir Walter Wrottesley (c.1430-1473), a confirmed Yorkist, and one of the leading administrators in the retinue of Richard Neville, Earl of Warwick 'the Kingmaker', arranged the marriage of his eldest son and heir Richard Wrottesley to Dorothy, the second daughter of Sir Edmund Sutton of Aston Le Walls, heir to the barony of Dudley, and his first child from his second marriage to the widowed Dame Maud (née Clifford) Harrington of Hornby Castle. The marriage brought the Wrottesleys no lands, but much prestige, for the Suttons of Dudley Castle were one of the most families in Staffordshire, and Richard Wrottesley's father-in-law Sir Edmund was high in favour at the court of King Edward IV, and served as deputy lieutenant of Ireland under his brother-in-law John Tiptoft, 1st Earl of Worcester (Sir Edmund's first wife had been Worcester's sister).
Wrottesley Hall, Tettenhall, Staffordshire
Baronets since 1641, and Barons since 1838, the family is widely covered in the peerage works, but the most comprehensive account to-date remains Major-General Hon. George Wrottesley's 1903 book History of the Family of Wrottesley of Wrottesley, co. Stafford. With the marriage of Sir Hugh Wrottesley, great-grandson of Richard and Dorothy (Dudley) Wrottesley, to Margaret Devereux, the family fell under the scope of Ruvigny's Plantagenet Roll series, and he covers them in Table XXX (p. 32) of his 1908 Essex volume (see Line A below for the descent).

Below are the nine lines of descent for Sir Walter Wrottesley, 3rd Baronet, born 1659, died at Somerford Hall, Brewood, Staffordshire, buried 4 April 1712 St Mary & St Chad Church, Brewood.
