Bio and Links
Bio Photo My grandmother Luetta Crenshaw captured my imagination with stories of her Anglo-Catholic ancestry, and I've since discovered her mother Miami Deitchman's great-grandfather John Abraham Rhodes (1794-1861) was a descendant of Charles Calvert, 3rd Lord Baltimore (1637-1715), Proprietor of Maryland, Henry Knyvett (d. 1603) of Fleet Street, London, and Dr. Stephen Goffe (1605-1681), royalist agent during the Wars of the Three Kingdoms and chaplain to King Charles I and Queen Henrietta Maria. Stephen Goffe, elder brother of the regicide William Goffe, plays a large part in the plot twist of Cornelia Mitchell Parsons's 'For Conscience Sake' which was published in a serialized format in 1914 and 1915 in Americana; American Historical Magazine, vols. 9 & 10. In this historical novella Parsons described Stephen Goffe's abandoned wife Penelope [who left Holland and returned to England, where she remarried Robert Whalley, younger brother of the regicide Edward Whalley] as a granddaughter of the Elizabethan courtier Lady Penelope Devereux (1563-1607).

My cousin Crolian William Edelen also helped cultivate this interest in our mutual Anglo-Catholic ancestry, and went so far as to sponsor my membership with the National Society of Descendants of Lords of the Maryland Manors. Another relative that intrigued me was my 4th-great-grandmother Louisa Edelen Rhodes's cousin, the Catholic antiquarian Benedict Joseph Webb (1814-1897), prominent opponent of the Know-Nothing Party and the author of The Centenary of Catholicity in Kentucky (Louisville, 1884).

Hebburn Chapel, Northumberland
Todd, I'm have difficulty locating the Hebburn Chapel. Nothing listed in Find-A-Grave. I've worn out Google looking for it and the graves of Deodatus Threlkeld, b. abt 1657, d. 02-26-1732, wife Margaret, a few children & their spouses, buried there. My idea is the chapel was/is in the area of Bothal, Northumberland. In "A history of Northumberland, in three parts, Part 2, Volume 2", Hebburn Chapel, p. 130-131, the author writes of the cemetery:

"Here lyeth the body of James Ogle of Cawsey Parke Esquire, sonne and heir of William second sonne of Ralphe the 3 Lord Ogle. He lefte 5 sonnes. Close adjoining to the stone of the Ogles, is also one of the family of Threlkeld, thus inscribed: The burial place of Mr. Deodatus Threlkeld of Tritlington and Margaret his wife, by whom he had issue 3 children, viz. John, Thomas and Elizabeth. He departed this life the 26th Feb. 1732, aged 75."

Do you know the location of Hebburn Chapel or its graveyard? Or, graves of any Threlkelds? Or, someone who might be familiar with it?
Thanks, Paul Bartley, Contributor #48491784

RE: Richard Berkeley, #119283512
Thank you for your prompt reply. I purchased several source books on Westbury-on-Trym and will see what I can find. Richard was my 14 great grandfather; my recent visit to England focused on the Berkeleys, a line I've been researching for several years now. The lack of records for a layman like me can be frustrating at times! Again, thank you.

Edward & Katherine Barber

Have uploaded photos for the above, however, I think their names are BABER not Barber. BABER is a well known name in the area and the death dates tie in with the dates you supplied.

It is a very large moment with two effigies also details of other Baber family members. If you let me have your email address I can send you the additional photos if you are interested.

Still working on the John St. Lo(e) photo - tricky as inscriptions are in Latin and also there is another large effigy whose inscription I cannot locate who may be John, will keep trying

RE: John Mylwater
Hi Todd thank you so much for this. Ill take a look. John is also mentioned in David Baldwin's book about Richard III, (the one with the added chapter on the recovery of Richard's body).

I am in touch with Larry Mildwater in Australia and the family who are decendants of John. He has sent me quite a lot of information so I will ask him if I can pass it on to you.

As I said Glenn Foard is now in the process of acquiring funding to carry out an archaelogical dig on the Battle of Barnet. It would be interesting to know how John died. I believe he was supporting Richard. I am also in touch with a descendant of Richard Neville.

How did John come to be buried at Greyfriars and was anyone else from that Battle buried there.

John Mylwater
Hi I am the London SE Representative of the Battlefield Trust and we are submitting a plan to the Heritage Lottery fund spearheaded by Glenn Foard to carry out an archaelogical dig in relation to the Battle of Barnet. In my research I have come across the relatives of John Mylwater who was Edward IV's exchequour and fought for him at Towton, Mortimer Cross and was killed at Barent. Your website has turned up a John Mylwater died in 1471 buried at Greyfriars and I would like to know more about his death and burial. If you have any information that might help it would be appreciated as I am in touch with his family members now living in Australia.

Hello Tod, I have a tombstone photo and index listing for Robert W Glass, MD on the same stone as David Glass, however there are no dates. Do you know if he is buried here?

Are you related to Michael Brand (Sr.)? I was intrigued by the photo you had, I had never seen one of him, just for his son who also named Michael Brand. I am a descendent of Michael's brother Joseph, but I know at least one direct descendent of Michael who would also be interested.
