Subject: Sneyd ancestors of Lichfield
Date: Sat, 04 Jun 2011 23:34:03 -0400
One ancestor of the present Earl of Lichfield (a Cecil descent for him)
is William Sneyd of Keele who married Elizabeth Audley
Leo here shows this couple
no parents for William
William Sneyd was the second son of his father Ralph Sneyd of Keele esq
William was "aged 50" at the Vis taken and dated Apr 1663
His father Ralph was buried at Wolstanton 7 Apr 1643 "aged 78"
Ralph's wife, William's mother was Felicia Archbold
The fourth son of Ralph and Felicia was that Richard Sneyd who married Grace Fenwick the widow of that Thomas Venables who was heir apparent of his own father Peter Venables Baron Kinderton, but this Thomas d.v.p. sometime between 1640 and 1656.
I don't know if Thomas and Grace had any children, but he was "11 years old" in 1634, and by Richard, Grace had at least one child Felicia Sneyd who was "aet 6 years" Apr 1663
To give Felicia a bit of limitation on her chronology, she and Ralph's first son Ralph was "aet 2" in 1614
