He married Deliverance Malavery, Nov. 17, 1648, whom he obtained in the following manner: Having occasion to go to Boston, then the nearest place of trade to purchase groceries, he passed on his way a boiling spring, near a cottage, and being very dry, applied at the house for some water; a young woman came out with a pitcher, like Rebecca of old, and gave him to drink. Returning home, he happened to be again dry at the same place, called, and was supplied. Thus acquaintance thus providentially commenced, ripened into marriage some year or two afterwards."[matt3.FTW]

3 Excerpt from "Royalty for Commoners": Abraham (Abram) b. Ur of the Chaldeans; res. Caanan; d. in Caanan and bur in the cave of Machpelah near Mamre in the field of Ephrom, son of Zahar the Hittite, in a field Abraham bought from Hittites; md Sarah (Serai) who was b. in Ur of the Chaldeans and d. at Kiriath, Arba, in Hebron, Caanan; bur with her husband. Abraham was a wealthy livestock owner.

1 Chronicles 1:20-27

The sons of Joktan:
Almodad, Sheleph, Hazarmaveth,
Jerah, Hadoram, Uzal, Diklah,
Ebal, Abima-el, Sheba, Ophir,
Havilah, and Jobab.
So the son of Shem was Arpachshad,
the son of Arpachshad was Shelah,
The son of Shelah was Eber,
The son of Eber was Peleg,
The son of Peleg was Reu,
The son of Reu was Serug,
The son of Serug was Nahor,
The son of Nahor was Terah,
The son of Terah was Abram (later known as Abraham).

Genesis 23: 1-20

When Sarah was 127 years old, she died in Hebron in the land of Canaan; there Abraham mourned and wept for her. Then, standing beside her body, he said to the men of Heth; "Here I am, a visitor in a foreign land, with no place to bury my wife. Please sell me a piece of ground for this purpose."
"Certainly," the men replied, "for you are an honored prince of God among us; it will be a privilege to have you choose the finest of our sepulchres, so that you can bury her there."
Then Abraham bowed low before them and said, "Since this is your feeling in the matter, be so kind as to ask Ephron, Zohar's son, to sell me the cave of Mach-pelah, down at the end of his field. I will of course pay the full price for it, whatever is publicly agreed upon, and it will become a permanent cemetery for my family."
Ephron was sitting there among the others, and now he spoke up, answering Abraham as the others listened, speaking publicly before all the citizens of the town: "Sir," he said to Abraham, "please listen to me. I will give you the cave and the field without any charge. Here in the presence of my people, I give it to you free. Go and bury your dead."
Abraham bowed again to the men of Heth, and replied to Ephron, as all listened: "No, let me buy it from you. Let me pay the full price of the field, and then I will bury my dead."
"Well, the land is worth 400 pieces of silver," Ephron said, "but what is that between friends? Go ahead and bury your dead."
So Abraham paid Ephron the price he had suggested - 400 pieces of silver, as publicly agreed. This is the land he bought: Ephron's field at Mach-pelah, near Mamre, and the cave at the end of the field, and all the trees in the field. They became his permanent possession, by agreement in the presence of the men of Heth at the city gate.
So Abraham buried Sarah there, in the field and cave deeded to him by the men of Heth as a burial plot.

Genesis 25:7-10

Then Abraham died, at the ripe old age of 175, and his sons Isaac and Ishmael buried him in the cave of Mach-pelah near Mamre, in the field Abraham had purchased from Ephron the son of Zohar, the Hethite, where Sarah, Abraham's wife was buried.

6 Adelaide was born around 1015 and was the daughter of Odalrico Manfredo II, Margrave of Turin and Susa, and his wife Bertha of Este. Odalrico died while Adelaide was still a young, unmarried woman, and she inherited most of his vast domains in northern Italy.

Adelaide was a beautiful woman with the soul of a lion. She had learned martial arts as a girl and bore her own arms and armor. she had masculine courage and energy and knew how to rule her inheritance. More than once she waged war on rebels in her own territories, burning Asti, Lodi, and other towns that had risen against her.

Adelaide had three husbands. the first was Hermann, Duke of Swabia, whom she married in January 1037 and who died of plague in 1038. Her second was Henry of Montferrat, whom she married in 1041 and who died in 1045. Her third husband was Otto of Savoy, whom she married in 1046 and who died about twelve years later. It was through her children with Otto that Adelaide became one of the founders of the house of Savoy.

Adelaide's involvement in politics did not stop at her own borders. In the struggle between the German emperors and the papacy, she strongly supported the imperial side. In the quarrel between her son-in-law Emperor Henry IV and pope Gregory VII her advice to Henry saved his crown for him. When Henry went to Canossa to seek forgiveness from Pope, Adelaide went with him.

In her old age, Adelaide brooded over her three marriages. No one today knows what was troubling her. She did decide to seek God's forgiveness by doing works of charity, and she began to give generously to religious institutions.

8 Agnes was more than ordinary woman; she had a large and notable posterity by both of her husbands. Her granddaughter Deborah Joy married Captain Andrew Ward and had nine children. Among their many distinguished descendants was Henry Ward Beecher, so that she is the ancestress of the two most notable divines in American Edwards and Beecher, who with William Ellery Channing are the only preachers and theologians admitted to the "Hall of Fame." Agnes ?

States the following regarding Elinor:

Arrived on Arbella with Edmund and Robert, as did Nicholas Knapp. She may have previously been married to a "Disbrow."
The Genealogy of Nicholas Knapp by Dr. A.A. Knapp says that Elinor is the daughter of Edmund Lockwood, sister to Robert and Edmund. The Knapp genealogies also list Elinor as daughter of Edmund, sister to Robert and Edmund.

Another Knapp says:
From Frederick Harry Knapp on January 5, 1999: "ELINOR, CALLED 'LOCKWOOD', 'DISBROW', & 'WATERBURY'

"Elinor, first wife of Nicholas Knapp of Watertown, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts and Stamford, Fairfield Co., Connecticut, has been called "Lockwood', "Disbrow" and at times, "Waterbury", in older genealogies. No known record supports such claims!

EXTANT RECORDS IDENTIFY HER AS 'ELINOR' ONLY, AND ANCESTRY UNKNOWN. Her origin and ancestry remain unknown, though no doubt her origin was England. Many early publications state she was born at Combs, Co. Suffolk, England, though do so without benefit of supporting evidence. At best we can say 'she was (of) England."

Please see LOCKWOOD website for more arguments on the known last name of Elinor. As of this writing 2012, I am leaving the last name of Elinor as UNKNOWN.
Elinor ?

14 Elizabeth may have been the daughter of Thomas Champion. Elizabeth ?
15 I originally had Isaac married to Elizabeth Hempstead. But it has been brought to my attention by the following comment that was posted on my tree dtated 08-02-2010:

"No New London Hempstead woman of the early Colonial era was ever married to a Lamb....simply check the historical documentation which provides abundant evidence. Elizabeth Hempstead married John Plumbe 13 Feb 1689, according to a huge body of historical and genealogical record. When Elizabeth Hempstead Plumbe died in 1733, her brother Joshua wrote the following in his Diary: "I set up last night with sister Eliz Plumb, She was all night a Dying. She Dyed this morn about 7 o'clock; 60 year old Last Christmas Eve." Thanks, Chuck Plumb"

So for this reason, I am just putting the name as Elizabeth with last name as unknown until further research is done to determine her last name. 
Elizabeth ?

18 Note: Last name could possible be Whitehead Mary ?
19 Notion: The name of Mary Wentworth has been proposed for the wife of William Brewster. "The American Genealogist", " The Mayflower Descendant: A Quarterly Magazine of Pilgrim History and Genealogy" and the" New England Historical and Genealogical Register", all confirm that additional research must be done before accepting this surname as fact. In addition, a privately published pamphlet by John G. Hunt, "Of Mary Brewster, Wife of William Brewster of the Mayflower, from Plymouth, England to New Plymouth, New England" (1985) suggests that William Brewster's wife was named Mary Wyrall of Loversall, near Doncaster. This has yet to be proved. ( This taken from William Brewster of the Mayflower and His Descendants for 4 Generations by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.

"Mayflower Quarterly:vol. 75, No. 4 - December 2009": Mary Brewster - Mother to Millions of Americans
Written by Kathleen M. (Kathy) Myers -13th generation descendant of Mary and William Brewster, through their son, Love Brewster.

Throughtout North America the early settlers planted lilacs. A Hardy plant, lilacs provided beauty in the lives of those who cleared the land, built homestead, tilled the soil, and raised families. Toda, lilacs are still found growing in the places where these early people planted them, some hiding the foundation of byildings that vanished long ago. Such a location is one-acre plot of land in Duxbury, Massachusetts, where there is a "...huge lilac bush covering the cellar hold of the last house t this location. The acre plot, now owned by tghe Duxbur Rural and Historical Society, is practically the same one-acre that Elder William Brewster bought from Francis Eaton in 1631... on which he built his house." "Tradition holds that either the Elder or his son Jonathan ordered the lilacs from Holland, for the flower is not native to North America. I like to think they were planted in memory of Mary Brewster.

Not a lot is known about Mary Brewster's early life, not even her maiden name. She may have been a Yorkshire or Nottinghamshire girl. the year of her bith, 1569, is based on an affidavit she filed in Leiden, Holland in 1609 where her age was listed as 40.
Elizabeth I of England had been on the throne just a year when mary was born. I can only speculate whether mary brewster received an education beyond the wifely skills her mother would have taught. In Tudor England,"...the education of girls was for the privileged and the rish. Its aim was to produce wives schooled in godly and moral precepts....Most girls were taught the wifely arts, how to manage a household, neddlework, herbs and wild plants that oculd be used in healing, meal preparation, and their duty to their futher husband. But foremost was their strong religious training."
To the Pilgrims, "...marriage was a civil affair...a contract, mutually agreed upon by a man and a woman. Marriage was created by God for the benefit of man's natual and spiritual life. Marriages were considered important for two main reasons: Procreation of children to increast Christ's flock; and to avoid the sin of adultery. Paster John robinson taught that the important characteristics to find in a spouse are (1) godliness, and (2) similarity - in age, beliefts, estate, disposition, inclinations, and affections. In marriage, "the wife is specially required a reverend subjection in all lawful things to her husband,' and the husband is 'to give honor to the wife,' as the Lord requires 'the love of the hsband to his wife must be like Christ's to His church.'
William Brewster found in Mary a spouse that was close in age, shared his beliefs, and may have shared his estate in life, meaning they were of the same social class. The record does not reveal whether or not theirs was an arranged marriage as many were in those times. In Tudor England educating women to read was considered a waste of time but often educated men, such as William Brewster was, taught their spouses and daughters to read. Compatibility and affection was key to a marriage contract that lasted until her death 35 years later. Brewster never remarried, living 17 years beyond her.
As a typical 16th Century wife, Mary Brewster was responsible for the household. She was assigned the tasks of baking bread, brewing beer (drinking water was not fit to drink), curing and salting meats, cooking vegetables, preserving fruits and making pickles and jams. While candles and soap may have been purchased, country women made their own. They spun wool and linen for use in the household and for clothing. Mary, along with the assistance of her older children, would have milked the cows, gathered the eggs, and grown and tended the garden.
Life with William Brewster was filled with joy and anxiety. The early years at Scrooby Manor were joyful. Her first two children, Jonahtn (b.1593) and Patience (b.1600) were born there. By 1602 William Brewster had become more involved in the Separatist movement, and Scrooby Manor became a meeting place for the dissenters. mary Brewster would have found friends among this group of people. by 1606 the dissenters had formed the Separatist Church of Scrooby and the authorities were pressuring the. 1606 was the same year that Mary gave birth to their daughter who they named Fear. Just over a year later, the family fled to Holland.
During their time in Holland, Mary gave birth to three more children, sons Love and Wrestling and a child who died. It was in Holland that Mary Brewster was first introduced to the lialac bush. "The lilac is native to Eastern Europe and grows wild in the forests of Hungary and Romania." Popular on the continent, the lilac did not make its way to England until "....sometime before 1629 when the first record of its existence appears in wirting."
While the crossing began with good winds and good weather, many of the passengers were sea-sick at first. They had to contend with a crew of 30, some of who danced on the deck, and made fun of their seasickness, some who used profanities. About half way through the voyage, the "Mayflower" ran into strong storms which caused water to leak into the ship, dripping and falling on the 102 passengers squeezed in the deck below, a space seventy-five feet long and not quite five feet high. It was the space between the upper deck and the hold which contained their provisions.
As the wife of the appointed Elder of the group and as one of the oldest women on the voyage, Mary was a respected member of the community. She mothered the younger women and children with her strong religious faith and moral influence. As women in that era depended on other women or mid-wives to deliver their babies, she may have been called upon to assist with the birth of Oceanus Hopkins aboard the "Mayflower" as it crossed the Atlantic, and again with the birth of Perigrine White, the son of Susanna and William White, while the ship was anchored off of Cape Cod.
Shortly after the arrival of the "Mayflower", Dorothy Bradford, wife of William Bradford, fell off the ship and drowned. Mary (Norris) Allerton gave birth to a stillborn son. Soon, what has been called "the dying time" began. When it was over Mary Brewster was one of just five adult women to survive the first winter. By the first Thanksgiving, only four adult women survived. Mary Brewster, Eleanor Billington, Elizabeth Hopkins and Susanna White Winslow. With so few remaining, the skills Mary Brewster learned at her mother's knee were vital to the survivors.
I reflect on the courage of mary Brewster and the other women of the "Mayflower". I believe it was their great love of God and gtrust in His promises that carried them through. How many of us today have that kind of courage? To endure religious persecution; to cross the Atlantic Ocean in a small ship; to be deposited on a hostile shore during a New England winter; to lose half of the company in a few short months; to wather the "Mayflower" sail away to England leaving them with no means to return; to be self-relient and self-sufficient.
Mary Brewster died in 1627 and never lived in the house built by her husband on the one acre of land in Dusbury where the lilacs still gro."...With him came his sons, Love and Wrestly, and Richard ore, the little boy who grew up in the Brewster household. to his father's house Love brought his bride, Sarah Collier, and here were born their children, William, Nathaniel, Wrestling and Sarah. Nearby, on the west side of the creek, the Elder's oldest son, Jonathan, lived in a house he had built on his father's land. The Elder William Brewster died in 1643 and his estate was divided between his two sons, Love getting all east of the creek, and onathan west of the creek. How long the Brewster house stood is not known, but by 1648 both Jonathan and Love had left the Nook and the Brewster lands had been sold out of the family."
These were the people who tended the plants and watched the lilacs grow - her loving children and grandchildren whose descendants today number in the millins. The Brewster lilacs, planted in moemory of Mary Brewster.

22 NEHG Reg 2009, Oct Vol. 163: Basted on Ruth's first name and age at death, perhaps she was Ruth Stanborough, born at Southampton, 4 January 1668, daughter of Peregrine and Sarah (James) Stanborough, and widow of John Greenvill. Ruth ?
23 Sarah's maiden name is unknown. In her will, she refers to her brother George Graves, but she was not his sister. He had a sister Sarah who married a Mr. Deming. George Graves was a deacon, and in those days a deacon was usually referred to as "brother." If he was her brother-in-law, her maiden name would have been Ventris. In her will she refers to Priscilla Brackett (alias Reynolds) and Sarah Brackett (alias Shaw), as cousins, but the word cousins was more loosely used then than it is now. They may have been nieces ad, if such was the case, she might have been a sister of Peter Brackett, the father of these two "cousins," or a sister of one of his wives. There is no record that he had a sister Sarah Brackett and he is not mentioned in Sarah Lord's will. The connection between Sarah Lord and the two "cousins" is not apparent. Sarah ?

32 Erma Agazzi Chuk
A long time resident of Joliet, Erma died after a brief illness at the Joliet Area Community Hospice Home, Monday, November 6, 2006. She was born in Numa, Iowa on January 2, 1914 to parents Mary (Canalle) and Chedian Agazzi.

Erma is survived by her sisters, Geneva Ridgeway, Ruth Sebben, and Louise Webster; numerous nieces and nephews; her family at the YMCA and the Ingalls Park Methodist Church; and many dear friends.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Theodore Chuk; both of her parents; siblings, George Agazzi, Fred Agazzi, Madeline Goodwin, Robert Agazzi, and Jack Agazzi.

Erma graduated from Joliet Township High School in 1931 and completed her education at the Metropolitan Business College of Joliet. She worked for Richard Vance Investment Co. and Illinois Clay Products. In 1963, Erma became a small business owner when she purchased Electrolysis by Erma, which she operated until retirement.

The Joliet area has benefited greatly from Erma's involvement in numerous organizations and activities. She was active in the Richards Street Methodist Church, serving as a Board member and continued her work with the Ingalls Park Methodist Church. She also served as President of the Business and Professional Woman's Club, founded the Toastmistress Club and was involved with numerous community fundraising efforts.

Equal to her love of church and community is her participation in the YMCA. Joining in 1938, she was in the first group of women allowed membership and became the first woman to be elected to an executive post. Erma helped found the Women's Division which was instrumental in building a facility allowing women to attend the YMCA. She enjoyed creating and participating in programs that helped thousands of children in Joliet. She was also a founding member of the Y-Invest investment club for women to help educate members about finance which operated for 50 years. She was committed to advancing women in both business and community all of her life.

In 1967 Erma married the love of her life Ted Chuk and upon retirement traveled to five continents and became well known as an antiques dealer regionally. She has contributed greatly to community history through her many presentations and also donations to the Joliet Historical Museum becoming an expert on the Gerlach Barklow Calendar Company and Miss America Lois Delander of Joliet.

Erma will be greatly missed by her many family members and friends. Special thanks to her caregivers Ann and Carol at the Inn at Willow Falls and the Joliet Area Community Hospice.

35 It is believed that Alice had 4 children. The first two were named in the will of Thomas Wells: all mentioned (but not named) in wills of their uncles in 1637 and 1638; surname LOWE: John, Sarah, Child and child. Alice ALBRIGHT
36 Anne's death date is unknown. However, she was living, apparently unmarried, March 6, 1638 when her brother's inventory was taken. This included a debt to her of 10.10 pounds, perhaps an inheritance he was holding for her until her marriage. Anne ALBRIGHT
37 Frances came to New England with her second husband, Thomas Coleman. Frances ALBRIGHT
38 John was named overseer in the 1637 will of his brother-in-law, Thomas Wells of Evesham, and executor in the 1638 will of his brother, Richard Albright of Alderminster, Worcestershire, John ALBRIGHT
39 Richard married about 1592 to a woman whose name has not been learned. Following their marriage, richard and his wife lived in the parishes of Welford-on-Avon, Gloucestershire, and Alcester, Warwickshire.

According to the NEHG Register: the surname Albright is extremely rare in New England. Richard probable descended from the Albright family seated in the parishes of Mickleton and Ebrington, Gloucestershire. These adjacent parishes lie 3-6 miles south of Welford-on-Avon, Gloucestershire. 
40 Richard was "sicke and weake in body," when he made his undated will. After the usual religious preamble, and a request to be buried in the churchyard of Alderminster, he appointed his brother John Albright sole executor. Richard ALBRIGHT
41 From "Mayflower Increasings": eath NOtice in the Boston News-Letter, issue of 17 June 1717: "Little Compton, May 31. This morning died here Mrs. Elizabeth Paybody late wife of Mr. william Paybody in the 93rd year of her age. She was the daughter of John Alden, Esq: and Priscilla his Wife Daughter of Mr. William Mullins. This John Alden and Priscilla Mullins were Married at Plymouth in New-England where their Daughter Elizabeth was born. She was Exemplarily Vertuous and Pious and her Memory is blessed: Has left a very numerous Posterity: Her Granddaughter Bradford is a Grand-mother." Elizabeth ALDEN
42 Excerpt from "Mayflower Increasings": Capt. John Alden was a distinguished and respected citizen, having lived in Boston for over 30 years. He was an experienced mariner and had served as a naval commander. As a military officer he had served in the French and Indian wars and as late as 1690 served as commissioner in conducting negotiations with the natives. Imagine his amazement to find himself before the Salem magistrates, 31 May 1692, "upon the accusation of a company of poor distracted or possessed creatures or witches" on a charge of witchcraft! He was interrogated for many hours, during which time his sword was taken from him (he was accused of using it to afflict his accusers) and he was further degraded by one accuser who states, "he sells powder and shot to the Indians and French, and lies with the Indian squaws, and has Indian papooses". The evidence against him? During the interrogation he was said to pinch his accusers, strike them down with his look, and heal them with his touch. Capt. Alden was taken to Boston jail where he was held in custody for fifteen weeks and, in his own words,"....and then, observing the manner of trials, and evidence then taken, was at length prevailed with to make his escape". He made his escape about the middle of September and it was probable just in time as soon after this nine of the accused were executed. Alden probably made his way to Duxbury where relatives and friends hid him, but his experience was not yet over. In April 1693 when it appeared the witchcraft hysteria was over and people were coming to their senses, Alden turned himself in and was bound over to the Superior Court at Boston the last Tuesday of Apr. 1693. When no one came forward to prosecute, he and 150 others were released. The judicial proceedings were finally over, at the expense of 20 innocent lives. John ALDEN
43 Excerpt from Connecticut, 1600s-1800s Local Families and Histories: "John Alden, immigrant ancestor, was born in England in 1599. He joined the Pilgrims on the "Mayflower" at Southampton as the ship was on its way to America. When the ship stopped there for supplies, he was hired as cooper. He had not been with them at Leyden, and was probably not a member of the independent church, but soon joined. He cast his fortunes with the Pilgrims, after enduring the hardships of that first terrible winter at Plymouth, when so many died. He was doubtless influenced in this decision by his love for Priscilla Mullens, th story of which, with some embellishments, is told in the " Courtship of Miles Standish." She was the daughter of William Mullens, who came on the "Mayflower" with his family. John an Priscella were married in the spring of 1621. When the common property of the cololy was divided in 1627, Alden went with Captain Standish, Elder Brewster, John Howland, Francis Eaton and Peter Brown, to Mattakeeset, the Indian name of the territory now included in Duxbury, Marshfield, Pembroke, Hanson and Bridgewater, Massachusetts. For several years they were obliged to return to Plymouth during the winer season to combine all their forces against the possible Indian attacks. The residence at Plymouth in the winter also gave them an opportunity to attend worship, and the records show a written agreement of Alden and others in 1632 to remove their families to Plymouth in the winter. In 1633 Alden was appiointed assistant to the governor, an office which he held for nearly the whole of the remainder of his life, serving with Edward Winslow, Josiah Winslow, Bradford, Prince and Thomas Hinckley. From 1666 until his death, he held the office of first assistant, was often called the deputy governor, and was many times acting governor in the absence of the governor. From 1640 to 1650 he was also deputy to the colonial council from Duxbury...... He was one of the council of war, many times an arbitrator, a surveyor of lands for the government as well as for individuals, and on several important occasions was authorized to act as agent or attorney for the colony. He was possessed of a sound judgment and of talents which, though not brilliant, were by no means ordinary........ John ALDEN
44 Note: Might be daughter of Arnulf, Count of West Friesland and Ghent, d. 993, and Luitgarde of Luxemburg. Until further research is done, I am not connecting them. ALEIDA
45 He had two illegitimate children:
Peter (d. 1424, Battle of Verneuil), Lord of Gallandon
Marguerite, married Jean de St-Aubin, Lord of Preaux 
John I Duke Of ALENCON
46 John II of Alen┴on (March 2, 1409, Chéteau d'Argentan ? 1476, Paris) was the son of John I of Alen┴on and Marie of Brittany. He succeeded his father as Duke of Alen┴on and Count of Perche as a minor in 1415, after the latter's death at the Battle of Agincourt.

He saw action as a young man at the Battle of Verneuil on August 17, 1424, and was captured by the English. He was held prisoner until 1429, when he was released after payment of a large ransom, which left him impoverished, and the English in control of his duchy. Before his capture at Verneuil, he had married in 1424, at Blois, Jeanne of Orleans, daughter of Charles, duc d'Orl╚ans, but she died in 1432.

Shortly after his release, he met Joan of Arc and joined her in the fighting through the Loire Valley, becoming her most prominent supporter among the princes of the blood. He left to fight elsewhere after the end of the campaign in September 1429, preferring to attack the English around his own domains in Normandy. On April 30, 1437, at the Chateau L'Isle-Jourdain, he married Marie of Armagnac (c. 1420 ? July 25, 1473, Cloister Mortagne-au-Perche), daughter of John IV of Armagnac.

John was discontented with the Treaty of Arras, having hoped to make good his poverty through the spoliation of the Burgundians. He fell out with Charles VII, and took part in a revolt in 1439?40, (the Praguerie) but was forgiven. He took part in the invasion of Normandy in 1449, but he had unwisely entered into correspondence with the English since 1440. (He had also accepted the Order of the Golden Fleece at this time.) Shortly after testifying at the "rehabilitation trial" of Joan of Arc in 1456, he was arrested by Jean de Dunois and imprisoned at Aigues-Mortes. In 1458, he was convicted of l╦se-majest╚ and sentenced to death, but the sentence was commuted and he was imprisoned at Loches. He was released by Louis XI upon terms at his accession in 1461, but he refused to keep them and was imprisoned again. He was tried a second time before the Parlement of Paris and sentenced to death again on July 18, 1474, and his Duchy was confiscated. However, the sentence was not carried out, and he died in prison in the Louvre in 1476.

John has several illegitimate children:
Jeanne (d. aft. Dec 4, 1481), Countess of Beaumont-le-Roger, married in 1470 Guy de Maulmont
Madeleine, married Henri de Breuil 
47  Affonso I Henriquez King Of Portugal & ALGARVES
48 I originally had this Anna Allen being the daughter of Ebenezer Allen and Mary Wing. But I have come across "The Allen Memorial" by Orrin Peer Allen. It states that Anna Allen, daughter of Ebenezer and Mary Allen is married to Reuben Clasby.

Right now, I do not have any other information on the Anna Allen who married Thomas Howland. 
49 In a deed dated May 7, 1738, Edward and Ann Allen gave their son, Ebenezer, one-half their dwelling house, barn, and other buildings, with the half of the house lot on which they lived, also so much right in the commons as would keep 59 1/2 sheep, with the house lot meadow, also a fourth part of the stock and other property. (See Nantucket Book of Deeds, vol. 4, p.178)

The tradition is preserved in the family that Edmund Heath, the father of Ebenezer's wife, belonged to a title and wealthy family in England, and being the youngest, was sent to this country in charge of Capt. Richard Coffin; in the same vessel was Catherine Sylvan, a pretty French girl whom the captain had found in France, and hired as a servant. The acquaintance thus formed on shipboard between the young people ripened into love and in due time after landing at Nantucket they were married. Many years afterward a letter was received by the family asking for heirs to the Heath estate in England, but the matter was never followed up, so the family never profited by the information, and doubtless lost a large property.
