Subject: [APPLETON] Appleton Royal Ancestry, reposting #1
Date: Mon, 28 Apr 2003 11:45:10 +0200

Due to technical problems, I will repost this 39-generation ahnentafel for
Samuel Appleton who married Hannah Paine, the progenitor of many Appleton's
in America. All generations are referenced; references in brackets follow
the fact stated. The bibliography is found at the end of the file, which
will be included with the last posting of this ancestry. I will post 4-6
generations each day, beginning from the most recent and working back in

For those not used to medieval naming conventions, the surnames beginning
with "DE" or "D'" are Latin for "OF". Many surnames were derived from
localities, with the DE being dropped as time went on. I have followed
Welch conventions of patronymics: AB denotes "son of", FERCH denotes
"daughter of". You may have encountered alternative spellings of many names
mentioned here, and I have used the "Alias" field in my program to account
for most of the ones I've seen. Where you see in a reference something such
as "line 45-20" it is from the F.L. Weis books (in case anyone is not
familiar with them). It is set up by family lines in sequence, hence the
format. For many of the generations shown here I have additional
descendants, but the ahnentafel format does not permit this. If anyone
would like this information in one file, please let me know.

by annual election continued in that rank to the time of overthrow of the
charter government 1686. In 1675 he had command of all the MA forces on CT
river and late in the season, when succeeded by Major Savage in that
quarter, was transfered to the expedition against Narranganset for the
bloody and decisive action of 19 Dec. Resolute in support of the liberty of
the people against the unlawful taxation in 1687, he was imprisoned by
Andros, and hardly released. See Hutch. I. 365. In the new Charter of
William and Mary, 1691, he was made one of the council, though by the

for himself in the city of London without first serving an apprenticeship of
at least 7 years to a freeman of one of the livery companies (or mercantile
guilds), and large premiums were paid for placing apprentices who were
usually indentured when about 15 years of age. Accordingly, John Everard
was apprenticed as a goldsmith in 1560, and in 1567 at the age of 22 years,
became a freeman of the city of London. At the same time he succeeded to
his father's lands in Great Canfield, and also received by his father's will
100, a handsome legacy for those times, and equal to 3000 at the present
day [1926]. With this patrimony he was able to establish himself in
