O Gentlest Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with buring love for the poor captive souls in Pergatory, have mercy on the soul of Thy servant, bring her far from the shadow of exile to the bright home of Heaven, where, we trust, Thou and Thy Blessed Mother, have woven for her a crown of unending bliss. Amen.

Following is my transcription of the biography of Joan Antrobus taken from pages 67 to 69 of The Great Migration – Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, Vol I.

Antrobus, Joan; The Great Migration Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635; Vol I; A to B (1)
Biography of Joan Antrobus – The Great Migration – Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, Vol I., page 67. 

JOAN ANTROBUS

ORIGIN: St Albans, Hertfordshire
MIGRATION: 1635
FIRST RESIDENCE: Unknown

ESTATE: On 16 May 1614, administration on the estate of Walter Antrobus of St Albans was granted to “]ane Antrobus, his widow”
[Archdeaconry of St Albans, Diocese of London, Admon Act Book, 1574-1638].

Biography of Joan Antrobus – The Great Migration – Immigrants to New England, 1634-1635, Vol I., page 68.

68

The Great Migration

BIRTH: About 1567 based on date of marriage.
DEATH: 1635 or later, perhaps in New England.
MARRIAGE: Joan Arnold married at St Albans 8 February 1586/7 Walter Antrobus [St Albans PR 135]. He was buried at St Albans 5 April 1614 [St Albans PR 2.04].

CHILDREN (all baptized St Albans, Hertfordshire):

i WILLIAM, bp. 2.5 June 1587 [St Albans PR 25]; m. St Albans 6 July 1607 Alice Denton [St Albans PR 140].

ii WALTER, bp. 1 June 1589 [St Albans PR 28]; no further record.

iii ROBERT, bp. 21 February 1590/1 [St Albans PR 29]; no further record.

iv JOAN, bp. 2.5 June 1592 [St Albans PR 30]; In. (1) St Albans 23 October 1609 Thomas Lawrence [St Albans PR 141]; m. (2.) by 1628 JOHN TUTTLE [TAG 51: 173].

v ELIZABETH, bp. 6 August 1598 [St Albans PR 35]; presumably she who m. St Albans 5 May 1617 John Cowley [St Aibans PR 144].

vi HENRY, bp. 25 April 1600 [St Albans PR 36]; bur. St Albans 14 June 1602 [St Albans 196].

ASSOCIATIONS: Through her daughter, Joan (Antrobus) (Lawrence) Tuttle, this immigrant was ancestress of several members of the Tuttle, Lawrence and Giddings families (see sketches of JOHN TUTTLE, GEORGE GIDDINGS, JOHN LAWRENCE, THOMAS LAWRENCE and WILLIAM LAWRENCE).

In his will of 27 January 1664[/5], “William Antrobus of London Esq.” bequeathed to “William Antrobus in New England the sum of forty shillings for a legacy and that is all he shall have out of my estate” [PCC 11 Hyde]. Sir Reginald Antrobus suggests that this may be the William Antrobus baptized at St Albans 7 April 1611, son of William Antrobus [St Albans PR 46; Antrobus Pedigrees 34, 108], and therefore nephew of Joan (Arnold) Antrobus [Antrobus Pedigrees 12-13, 96]. But the testator of 1665 and the William baptized in 1611 were third cousins once-removed, so the legatee may be another William more closely related to the testator.

COMMENTS: On 2. April 1635, “Joan Antrobuss,” aged 65, was enrolled at London, with a certificate of conformity “from the minister of St Albans, Hertfordshire,” as a passenger for New England on the Planter [Hotten 45]. No record of Joan Antrobus has been found in New England. She may have chosen at the last minute not to make the trip, or she may have died

aboard ship. It she did make the passage to New England, she probably resided in Ipswich with her daughter and son-in-law.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTE: In 1929 Sir Reginald L. Antrobus published extensive information on the Antrobus families of England, including data relating to the branch of interest to us here [Sir Reginald L. Antrobus, /introbus Pedigrees: The Story of a Cheshire Family (London 192.9), 12-13, 96-9’7 (cited above as Antrobus Pedigrees)]. In 1941 Mary Walton Ferris published a brief account of ]oan Antrobus [Dawes-Gates 1:64-65].

Obituary for Mary Foulke (nee Underwood)
Obituary for Mary Foulke (nee Underwood) – Noblesville Daily Ledger – Mon 3 June 1935, page 2.

Mrs. Mary Frances Foulke, widow of George Foulke, passed away at an early hour Sunday morning in the home of her daughter, Mrs. Grace Robbins, seven miles east of Arcadia. Mrs. Foulke has been in poor health for several years and her death was not unexpected. The body was taken to the Shaffer funeral home at Arcadia, where it will lie in state until Tuesday afternoon. Funeral services will be held in the Shaffer parlors and burial will take place in the cemetery near Sheridan.

Mrs. Foulke was the daughter of Lewis and Sarah (Statton) Underwood and was born Dec. 4, 1853, on the old homestead west of Arcadia, where she resided until less than a year ago when the daughter and family moved to east of Arcadia and she went to live with them. The husband has been dead for several years. Just a year ago, June 6th, the tragic death of her son, Arthur Foulke, of Arcadia, was a great shock to her.

She leaves besides the daughter at whose home she died, two other daughters, Mrs. Alice Phillips, of west of Arcadia, and Mrs. Sarah Ross, residing on road 31, and stepson Alvin Foulke, west of Cicero. She also leaves several grandchildren.

The following is a transcription of the biographical data and ancestry of John P. Keefer from the Biographical Annals of Franklin County.

BIOGRAPHICAL ANNALS OF FRANKLIN COUNTY.

Biography of John P. Keefer
Biography of John P. Keefer

JOHN P. KEEFER. Few men of Franklin county have been more actively identified with the mercantile interests of Chambersburg than Mr. John P. Keefer, a leading dry goods merchant of this city, born in Guilford township, Sept. 7, 1833, a son of John (II) and Hannah (Price) Keefer, deceased, and grandson of Jacob Keefer (I).

  1.   JACOB KEEFER (who was among the very early settlers of Franklin county, was of German ancestry, and had the following family:1.   JACOB.
  1. CHRISTIAN.
  2. DANIEL.
  3. JOHN (II).
  4. CATHERINE married John Snively.
  5. NANCY married John Stauffer.

The old Keefer family was brought up in the faith of the German Baptist Brethren Church.

2.    JOHN KEEFER, father of John P. Keefer, was born ih Guilford township, in 1800, and spent his life farming in his native township. In 1827, he married Hannah Price, who was born, reared and educated at Waynesboro, and they became the parents of four children:

  1. ELIZABETH, deceased, married Franklin Reed.
  2. HENRY married Elizabeth Strickler, and both are deceased.
  3. JOHN P. (III).
  4. DANIEL, deceased.

3.    JOHN P. KEEFER was reared on his father’s homestead and attended the public schools until he was fifteen years of age, when he came to Chambersburg and entered the academy of this city, remaining one year. He then became clerk in a general merchandise store, owned by H. H. Hutz, and so continued until he was twenty-

185

one years of age. He was then made a partner, and the firm continued until after the war, when Mr. Keefer embarked in business for himself, since which time he has steadily grown in public favor, until he ranks among the leading merchants of Chambersburg. He enjoys the distinction of having been in business for forty-eight years, the longest term of any merchant here.

Mr. Keefer married Miss Rebecca Seibert of Chambersburg, daughter of Samuel and Agnes (Grove) Seibert, old settlers of Franklin county. Mr. and Mrs. Keefer became the parents of the following children:

  1. GEORGE G., of York, Pa., married Bertha Mumper, of York county, and they have three children: John, Samuel and Paul.
  2. ALICE married Dr. H. B. Creitzman, of Welsh Run, Pa., and they have one daughter: Mildred.
  3. CHARLES W. is assistant manager of his father’s dry goods business at Chambers-“bur g.
  4. MAURICE W., of Steelton, Pa., married Rose Stewart, and has one son: Stewart.
  5. ANNIE is at home.
  6. FLORENCE is at home.

In politics, Mr. Keefer is a sound Republican, and always supports the platform and candidates of his party, but has been too much occupied with his business affairs, to seek public office, although he is so popular in the city, that there is no doubt but that he could obtain almost any office within the gift of his fellow townsmen. In religious affiliations he is an earnest member of the Lutheran Church of Chambersburg, of which he has been deacon and trustee for many years. His fraternal associations have been of the most pleasant, he being an honored member of the I.O.O.F., and one of the most active supporters of that lodge.

Beginning many years ago, when commercial conditions were so essentially different from those of today, Mr. Keefer built up a business of which any man might well be proud; established a credit for his house that could not be shaken, and has gradually changed his policy to meet changed circumstances. Upon his books can be found names which were written there at the start, for once he gains a customer, it is seldom he loses him. Although he is somewhat advanced in years, Mr. Keefer is as energetic as ever, and superintends every detail of his large business, and ensures the same honorable treatment of all, which has been one of the leading characteristics of the house since its inception.

The following is my transcription of the Dictionary of National Biography entry for Baron Hugh de Lacy, Lord of Meath, died 1186.

Featured image: Trim Castle, stronghold of Hugh de Lacy, 1st Lord Meath.

Baron Hugh de Lacy, Lord of Meath (d. 1186) was 25th great grandfather to my children.

Lacy, Hugh de, fifth Baron Lacy by tenure, and first Lord of Meath (d. 1186), one of the conquerors of Ireland, was no doubt the son, and not, as has sometimes been stated, a younger brother, of Gilbert de Lacy (cf. Dugdale, Mon. Ang. vi. 135).

Gilbert de Lacy (fl. 1150), fourth baron Lacy, was son of Emma, daughter of , first baron Walter de Lacy [q.v.] His father’s name is not known. After the death of his uncle, Hugh de Lacy, the family estates were taken into the royal hands, but Gilbert assumed the name of Lacy. In the reign of Stephen he at first supported the Empress Matilda, in whose behalf he attempted to capture Bath in 1138 (Gesta Stephans, iii. 38, Rolls Series). But by 1146 he had gone over to the king, perhaps because the empress kept Joce de Dinan in possession of Ludlow Castle. So far as there is any truth in the early part of the ‘Romance

of Fulk Fitzwarine,’Gilbert, and not his grandson Walter, must be the hero. That Joce and Gilbert were opponents is an historical fact. Gilbert appears to have obtained the favour of Henry II, and recovered his uncle’s lands ; in 1158 he was excused the domain to the king. A ittle later he joined the knights of the Temple, and went to the Holy Land. There he became preceptor of his order in the county of Trioli, in which capacity he engaged in Geoffrey of Angoulême’s successful expedition against Noureddin in 1163 (William of Tyre, xix, 8). He gave the templars’twelve hides of land, and one virgate in Guttinges, and also five burgages in Winchcombe. He is described as a prudent man and skilful soldier.

Hugh de Lacy is said to have had a dispute with Joce de Dinan as to certain lands in Herefordshire in 1154 (Weight, Hist of Ludlow, p. 54). He was in possession of his father’s lands before 1163, and in 1165-6 held fifty-eight and three-quarters knight’s fees, and had nine tenants without knight service (Eton, Shropshire, v. 253). In October 1171 he went over to Ireland with Henry II, and early in 1172 was sent to receive the submission of Roderic, king of Connaught. Before Henry’s departure about the end of March Lacy was granted Meath by the service of fifty knights and with almost royal authority; he was also put in charge of Dublin Castle. Later in the year Lacy arranged a meeting with Tiernan O’Rourke to take place at Tlachtgha, now called the Hill of Ward, near Athboy in Meath. The meeting ended in a quarrel, which both parties attributed to the treachery of the other; Tiernan was slain, and Hugh only escaped with difficulty. Lacy seems to have left Dublin in charge of Earl Richard de Clare by the king’s orders, and to have commenced securing Meath by the erection of castles. Among these was the castle of Trim, which was put in charge of Hugh Tyrel. After this Lacy went back to England (Regan, ll. 3152-3238). On 29 Dec. 1172 he was at Canterbury, where, according to a story preserved by Giraldus, he reproved Archbishop Richard for his boastful langmacge (Opera, vii. 69). Next year he was fighting for Henry in France, and held Verneuil against Louis VII for a month; but at the end of that time the town was forced to capitulate. Hugh de Lacy is mentioned as one of those who were sent by the king with his treasure to Jerusalem in May 1177 (Gesta Henrici, ii. 159). Another version names Henry de Lacy, and in any case it cannot be our Hugh, who was at the same time sent over to Ireland as procurator-general, Richard de Clare having died shortly before. The grant of Meath was now confirmed, with the addition of Offelans, Offaly, Kildare, and Wicklow (ib. ii. 161, 163-4 ; Geraldus, v. 347).

As governor of Ireland Lacy secured Leinster and Meath by building numerous castles, while he maintained peace and good order by making it his first care to preserve the native Irish in possession of their lands. by his liveral and just conduct he won the hearts of the Irish; but his friendly relations with the native chiefs soon led to an accusation that he intended to seize the sovereignty of the island for himself (ib. v. 352-358, 356(. The author of the ‘Gesta Henrich’ however, says that Lacy lost his favour with Henry in consequence of complaints of his injustice by the Irish (ii. 221). In 1181, he was recalled from his government for having married the daughter of Roderic, king of Connaught, without leave (ib ii. 270). But in the following winter Hugh was sent back, though with a condjutor in the person of one of the royal clerks, Robert of Shrewsbury. When, early in 1185, Henry sent his son John over to Ireland, the young earl complained to his father that Hugh would not permit the Irish to pay tribute. This led to fresh disgrace, but Hugh remained in Ireland, and occupied himself as before with castle-building. He had erected a castle at Durrow, in what is now King’s County, and on 25 July 1186 had gone out to view it, when ‘one of the men of Teffia, a yought named Gilla-gan-inathar O’Meyey, approached him, and with an axe severed his head from his body’ (Four Masters, iii. 73). The murderer was a foster-son of Sinnach O’Caharny, or ‘the Fox,’ chief of Teffia, by whose instigation he is said to have done the deed. A later story described him as one of the labourers on the castle, but there does not appear to be any authority for this older than Holinshed (ib. iii. 73-5 n.) William of Newburgh says that Henry was very glad at Hugh’s death, and repeats the story that he had aspired to obtain the crown of Ireland for himself (Chron. Stephen, Henry II, &c. i. 239-40, Rolls Ser.). Certainly Lacy had made himself formidable to the royal authority, and Earl John was promptly sent over to Ireland to take possession of his lands (Gesta Henrici, ii. 350).

Lacy was buried at Durrow, but in 1195 his body was removed to the abbey of Bective in Meath, and his head to St Thomas’s Church at Dublin. Afterwards a controversy arose between the canons of St Thomas and the monks of Bective, with ended in 1205 in the removal of the body to Dublin, where it was interred, together with the head, in

the tomb of De Lacy’s first wife (Rag. St. Thomas, Dublin, pp. 848-50).
Giraldus describes Lacy as a swarth man, with small black sunken eyes, a flat nose, and an ugly scar on his check; muscular in body, but small and ill-made. he was a man of resolute character; for temperance a very Frenchman, careful in private affairs, and vigilant in public business. Despite his experience in military matters he sustained many reverses in his campaigns. He was lax in his morality, and avarisious, but eager beyond measure for honour and renown (Opera, v. 34). Hugh was a benefactor of Lanthony Abbey, and also of many churches in Ireland, including the abbey of Trim.
Hugh’s first wife was Rose or Roysya de Monemne (Monmouth); by her he had two sons, Walter (d. 1241) and Hugh, both of whom are noticed separately, and also a daughter, Elayne, who married Richard de Beaufo. By the daughter of Roderic O’Connor whose name is also given as Rose, he had a son William (called Gorm or ‘Blue’), who acted in close connection with his half-borthers. William de Lacy took a prominent part in the resistance to William Marshal in 1224, and was killed fighting against Cathal O’Reilly in 1233 (Four Masters, iii. 269 ; Hennessey Book of Fenagh, pp 72-7). He married a daughter of Llewelyn, prince of North Wales. Pierce Oge Lacy, the famous rebel of Elizabeth’s time, was eighteenth in descent from him, and from him also descend the Lynches of Galway Four Masters, iii. 75 n. ; Reg. St. Thos. Dublin, pp. 7, 419-20 ; Shirley, Royal and Historical Letters, i. 223-4, 499, 500-2, Rolls Ser.). Hugh had another son, Gilbert, who was alive in 1222 (Cal. Rot. Claus. i. 527 b), and two daughters, one married ot Geoffrey de Marisco [q.v.] Matt. Paris, ii. 277), and the other to William FitzAlan (Eyton, v. 240), but by which wife is not clear. The daughter of the king of Connaught was alive in 1224; whe had at least two other sons, Thomas and Henry, whose surname is given as Blund. Since William de Lacy is also sometimes called LeBlund, they may have been brothers of the whole blood (Shirley, u.s. i. 502).

Thirdly, I do hereby constitute and appoint by this testament my brother William Royall guardian to my said son Joseph Albert and do vest him with full and ample powers over that part of my estate that I have divised unto my son Joseph Albert, so that he may sell or exchange any part thereof that he may think will be conducive to the interest of my said son, as I myself might or could do were I living, also it is my will that in case my wife should die before my said son arrives to the age of twenty one years or marries, that in case of such an event that my said brother William have as guardian the same control over that part of my estate that I have lent to my wife during her life as I have given him over the part devised to my said son And having implicit confidence in my said brother William it is my desire that security be not required of him as guardian of my son, and do require and expect of him that he will have my son well & virtuously educated and that he will have him qualified for such profession as his education and talents may fit him for.

Fourthly, it is my will that the whole of my estate be kept together untill my just debts are paid.

Fifthly, it is my desire that my estate be not appraised & that my executors hereafter named be not required to give security for the execution of this my last will.

Lastly I do appoint my brother William Royall & my worthy friend William Archer Cocke executors of this my last will and testament hereby revoking all wills heretofore by me made. As Witness my hand & Seal this twelfth day of January one thousand eight hundred & three.
