||Wenceslaus succeeded his father in both roles: Charles IV had been elected Holy Roman King and, in the course of things, crowned Holy Roman Emperor under the auspices of Avignon Pope Innocent VI; however, Wenceslaus never received the imperial coronation, but was deposed; the Bohemian title came to Wenceslaus by inheritance as Charles's son.|
Accusing Wenceslaus of devoting far more attention to his Bohemian than to his German duties, and of weakness in agreeing with Charles VI of France to end their support of rival Popes, the princes of the German states deposed him as King in August 1400 in favour of Rupert III, Count palatine of the Rhine, though Wenceslaus refused to acknowledge this successor's decade-long reign.
As King Wenceslaus IV of Bohemia, until his death in 1419, he came into repeated conflict with the Bohemian nobility, and sought to protect the religious reformer Jan Hus and his followers against the demands of the Roman Catholic Church for their suppression as heretics. This caused many Germans to leave the University of Prague, and set up their own University at Leipzig. Hus was executed in Konstanz in 1415, and the rest of Wenceslaus's reign in Bohemia featured precursors of the Hussite Wars that would follow his death.
He was the one who had "Saint" John of Nepomuk(Actually named Jan z Pomuka - John of Pomuk) tortured and put to death, allegedly because he was not willing to reveal the confessional secrets learned from king's wife Sofia of Bavaria as the popular Roman Catholic legend goes. In reality John of Pomuk was an notary in the consistory of Archbishop of Prague John of Jen?tejn, and was killed as a result of the property dispute and long personality conflict between the king and the fanatical archbishop.

||When a boy of twelve he walked from his father's home at Round Hills to Boston to ship for a voyage at sea. For many years he engaged in the West Indies trade, and sailed from Boston and New Bedford in command of merchant vessels. He was managing owner of a number of sloops, some of which were commanded by his younger brother, Captain John H. Howland. Old ship's papers show that on Dec 31, 1795, his sloop, the Goodintent, sailded from New Bedford with the following cargo: "36 boxes spermiciti candles, 50 barrels flour, 3 barrels rye flour, 45 bushels potatoes, 50 turkeys, 13 barrels ship bread, 4 boxes tallow candles, 60 barrels whale oil, 4 earth closets, wine, and 607 lbs. cheese."|
Captain John H. Howland was master of the Goodintent, and his accounting states that the net proceeds of the sale of the whale oil were eight hundred ninety-one pounds, eight shillings, seven pence. In 1799 Captain Joseph sent out his brother in command of sloop Franklin with a cargo of flour for Kingston, Jamaica, to be sold at two dollars a barrel, and giving him orders to return with a shipment of sugar. During the War of 1812, the Rainbow, of which Captain Joseph was master and part owner, was captured by a French privateer. He told his crew to go below, and took the wheel himself, but was forced to surrender. With all on board he was made a prisoner, being subsequently released. Captain Howland estimated his loss at about $3000. Nearly a century afterward, through the Court of French Spoliation Claims, his heirs were partially reimbursed by a payment slightly in excess of one-tenth of that amount. Some of them received shares of only eight dollars and twelve cents each.
Captain Howland lived for a number of years after the death of his father on the old Round Hills farm.

||When a small child, her father, leaving his wife and three small children, cheerfully answered the call of his country, and took up arms against the encroachments of the king of England and in defence of his inalienable rights. His father-in-law, meantime, took his little family into his own home and care. On his return from war his pecuniary circumstances were such as to require him to find homes for some of his children, where they could earn their support. Sally, together with her brother John, who was just three years older than she, were put out with a mr. John Edwards of Southbury, Ct., to live until of age. Here she remained until eighteen years old, and according to their terms of her parents' agreement, she returned to Ridgefield, where, at her parents' home, married her cousin Jesse Bouton, jr.|
They settled first in Ridgefield, and subsequently removed to Poundridge, where he died Feb. 22, 1822. Soon after his death she spent some time in the family of her brother, Thaddeus Boughton, in Washington, Dutchess Co., New York, where with her youngest son, Enoch Bouton, she remained a few months and then returned to Ridgefield, Ct., where, Oct. 19, 1828, she married, second, Enoch Holly, of Ridgefield, where they lived until June 1837, when he died. She then went to live with her daughter, Eliza Gilbert, three miles east of Ridgefield village. She was a member of the M.E. Church, a devoted Christian, a kind and sympathizing neighbor, and a most affectionate mother. She died July 2, 1858. at Ridgefield, where she was buried.

||When Aethelred died in 1016 there were two claimants to the throne - his son, Edmund Ironside, and Sweyn's son, Canute. After several battles, the two agreed to divide the country between them. However, Edmund soon died and Canute became King. After Canute's death in 1035, the throne passed to his two sons - Harold and Harthacanute - and then in 1042, to Edward the Confessor, who reigned until 1066.|
Ruler of England, Denmark, and Norway from 1016 to 1035, Canute brought much-needed stability to the affairs of England during his reign. Although a Viking, he treated Dane and Saxon alike and wisely appointed Englishmen to positions of importance in the church and at court. His modernization of the country's laws bear this out and he may be fairly described a one of the bet kings England has ever had. After his death in 1035, Canute was mourned by both Saxon and Dane.

Col. James Williams, Brig. Gen. Godfrey's (Bristol Co.) brigade; service 3 days; company marched from Taunton to Tiverton, R.I., on the alarm of Aug. 1, 1780.
Soon after the war he went to southern Vermont. "The first inhabitants of Woodford to take the freeman's oath were --Caleb More, Obed Eddy, Zadok Pierce, etc., a;so; the first representive chosen was Obed Eddy who utterly refused to serve, in consequence of which no suffrages were given for Governor", etc. (Hemingway's Gazetteer of Vermont History in Vol. I, p. 248).
When the census of 1790 was taken Obadiah Edee was in Bennington, Vt., with a household consisting of three males over 16, five under 16, and a male over 45, one girl under 10, and a female over 45. When his estate was settled Oct. 5, 1825, Phebe, "daughter and heir of Obadiah, late of Woodford, Vt., was made administrator with Joseph Hollister as surety." Ebenezer Temple and John Knapp were the appraisers (Bennington, Vt. Probate Rec.).

||When James ascended the English throne in 1603, he had already been king of Scotland for 36 years. There, he had ruled by the Divine Right of Kings - whereby kings were appointed by God and so were not answerable to men. This style of government was unacceptable inEngland, so he ruled for long periods without Parliament. He thus squandered the legacy of strong government left to him by Elizabeth I.|
The two principal favourites of James I were, in succession, Robert Ker and George Villiers. Ker, Earl of Somerset, was entrusted with the King's most intimate business. He angered the nation by encouraging the King to make an alliance with Spain, and by helping to raise dubious taxes. By 1616 the King had taken to Villiers, who became Earl of Buckingham.
The Gunpowder Plot was hatched by conspirators disgruntled with the King's failure to grant toleration of Catholics. they planned to blow up the House of Lords when the King came for the opening of Parliament on 5 November 1605. they dug a tunnel under the House of Lords and filled a cellar with barrels of gunpowder. However, he plot was foiled when one of the conspirators, Guy Fawkes, was discovered in the cellar with the gunpowder. the conspirators were arrested, tried, and executed.
Although well educated, James appeared foolish, and was known as the 'wisest fool in Christendom'.

||When sixteen years old he removed with his father from Colchester to Ellington, Ct., and March 11, 1754, his father deeded him a house and farm there. In 1767, he removed to Ludlow, Mass., then a part of Springfield, where he was one of the pioneers and a leading man in church and public affairs, and a public official in various capacities.

||When the Mayflower set sail for the new world in 120, one of the passengers was a thirteen-year-old teenager, Elizabeth Tilley. The daughter of John and Joan (Hurst) (Rogers) Tilley, Elizabeth was baptized at Henlow, Bedfordshire, England, on 30 August 1607. She died at Swansea, Massachusetts 22 December 1687, at the age of 80. Throughout the seasons of her life, Elizabeth tilley was a first person witness and participant in the settlement of what came to become known as New England and the United States of America...|
Sadly Elizabeth Tilley's parents did not survive the first winter. Historians believe that she subsequently went to live with John Carver and his wife, and it is with this family that John Howland was employed as a servant. However, John Carver died the first spring and his wife, Katherine, died the first summer and so this apparently left John Howland in charge of the Carver household. the Carvers' children died in Leiden and "Howland may have inherited at least a portion of Carver's estate. In 1624 he was considered the head of what was once the Carver household when he was granted an acre for each member of the household including himself, Elizabeth Tilley, Desire Minter and a boy named William Latham."
The exact marriage date of Elizabeth Tilley to John Howland is unknown. However, the Pilgrim John Howland Society states that,"...in the Division of Cattle in 1627 they were married with two children, Desire and John. If Desire was born in 1624 or 1625 it seems John and Elizabeth were married in March 1623 when Elizabeth was almost 16." John Howland was approximately 15 years her senior based on his date of death at age 80. Their ten children included six daughters and four sons: Desire, John, Jabez, Hope, Elizabeth, Lydia, Ruth, Hannah, Joseph and Isaac. Using an estimated marriage date of 1623, John Howland cared and provided for his then "teenage wife" for approximately 49 years.
With so little written about Elizabeth Tilley, a review of John Howland's record adds to what can be surmised about her --Elizabeth was John's able partner for life. He took an active role in Plymouth's affairs and became a prominent society member. Also, John Howland was one of the "Undertakers" who assumed the debt of the colony and was in charge of the Plymouth Colony trading post at Cushnoc on the Kennebec River, and he also served as Assistant to the Governor and participated in the founding of the First Parish Church in Plymouth.
The first house of Elizabeth and John Howland was located on the north side of Leiden Street in Plymouth. A reproduction of this first dwelling can be found at Plimoth Plantation....
The place that was to become their home for many years was the farm known as Rocky Nook. "This place" (now in the village of Kingston) 'we had a great liking to plant in, but it was so far from our fishing our principal profit and so encompassed with woods that we should be in much danger of the savages, and our number being so little and so much ground to clear,' that they wisely decided to settle on the high cleared lands of the present town of Plymouth, 'so near the sea, so well provided with fresh water, and so fortunately protected against Indian attacks.'" In 1637/8 John Howland acquired three acres of land, a house, barn, out buildings and five acres of adjoining meadow, Rocky Nook Farm. It appears that three of their ten children were born there...
Information varies with regard to the widow Elizabeth Howland leaving Rocky Nook. However, it is known that she never remarried and went on to live with two of her children. It appears she was in residence with her son, Jabez Howland, in Plymouth from 1674 until his house was sold in 1680. It was then that Elizabeth went to Swansea to live with her daughter, Lydia (Howland) Brown. Sadly the Howlands beloved Rocky Nook Homestead was burned in 1675 during the King Philip's War.....
While it isn't known how Elizabeth Tilley Howland occupied herself following the death of her husband, there are several interesting articles on the website of the Pilgrim John Howland Society. One article indicates that she kept busy with her numerous grandchildren. Elizabeth's admonition to her children in her Last Will and testament reveals her love of God and family: "I give & commit my soule unto Almighty God my Savior & Redeemer....It is my Will & Charge to all my Children that they walke in ye Feare of ye Lord, and in Love and peace toward each other."

||When they came to Boston Purchase, they settled first in a bark-covered shanty, the roof of which slid off one night during a heavy rain, leaving them exposed to the weather. He then built a log-house in which now stands the Congregational Church, in Newark Valley, New York. He also, built the first framed house in the village of Newark Valley.|
"Whitney Genealogy": They moved, with his parents, to newark Valley, New York, arriving there 4 March 1793. He built a log-house on the spot now occupied by the conference-room of the Congregational Church. He was the first postmaster of Newark Valley, and built the first framed house in that village, which is yet standing as a part of the old tavern. They died in Newark Valley (he, 2 June 1838; she, 12 Feb. 1853), and were buried in Hope Cemetery. She and her husband's mother were the first women in newark Valley; and for the first six moths of their residence there, they did not see another woman.

||When William of Orange was invited over to Britain to replace James II, it was arranged that he should rule jointly with his wife Mary, daughter of James. This unique arrangement lasted until the death of Mary in 1694, after which date William ruled by himself until his death in 1702. ||ORANGE, William Of (I90706)
||Where he came from and who his parents were, is not definitely known but he and all his brothers and a sister shared in the estate of "Thomas Gilbert" and it seems likely he was their father. In January, 1654, the town allowed him to "sett up a waire-house: att the common Landing Place," and in 1658 he was one of the "Troopers" under Maj. John Mason; was townsman several times from 1659 to 1679, inclusive; Marshall of the colony; Deputy to the General Court, and collector of Customs at Hartford. In May, 1662, the General Court granted liberty "to ye Marshall, Jonathan Gilbert to keep an Ordinary at his house at Cold spring for releiueing of Travellers", etc. His most important services were rendered in dealing with the Indians, whose language he was well acquainted with, and he served constantly as intermediary between them and the English Government. In 1661, the General Court granted him 300 acres of upland and 50 acres of meadow, doubtless for such services. It was to him, as Marshal of the Colony, that was addressed the Royal Search Warrant of Charles II for the apprehension of the regicides, Goffe and Whalley. He was a man of the most resolute bravery and was generally called upon to lead in time of danger. He was also a man of business capacity, respectable and enterprising; he was engaged in trade and in the coasting business and acquired what was the thought great wealth. He had large tracts of land in the different settlements. Savage says of him---"He was a man of distinction and kept an inn." ||GILBERT, Jonathan (I24989)
||Where we came from:|
Joseph George Crapo was born 7 November 1806 in the fishing town of New Bedford, Bristol Co, Massachusetts. Joseph was lost at sea when his boat capsized while he was working his oyster beds. he was picked up by a passing ship, bound for France, but his family believed him to have drowned. It took him over a year to earn his passage back to the United States, where he was reunited with his family. Converts to the Morman faith in Massachusetts, Joseph George Crapo and his wife Mary Hicks Collins Crapo, of Fall River, Bristol, Massachusetts, immigrated to Utah in 1853 with the Miller and Cooley Company. He and Mary were in the first group of settlers at Avon, Utah in 1860. Joseph George died just two months shy of 82 in Paradise, Cache, Utah.

||While Eliakim was on a visit to his brother James in Amenia he bought of Isaac Delamater, for "nine hundred and thirteen pounds of good and lawfull money of the Province of New York," a farm of two hundred acres. He then returned to Norwalk and sold his farm of forty acres which he owned there, and moved to the new field in 1773, where he soon afterward purchased about forty acres more.|
In the settlement of his estate after Eliakim's death this farm was purchased by his son Ezra, the price being as follows: 160 acres at $30. per acre, and seventy-five acres at $22.50 per acre; $6,487.50. After Ezra's death his son, Newton Reed purchased the farm for ten thousand dollars. After Newton's death, his son, HenryVan Dyck Reed, the present occupant, purchased the farm at nine thousand dollars, and on it have been born the ninth generation of reeds in America.

||While in Antwerp John met Tyndal under whose influence he abandoned the Roman Catholic faith and married an Antwerp lady. On the accession of Mary, Rogers preached at Paul's Cross against "pestilent Popery, idolatry, and superstitution." Ten days later, August 15, 1553, he was summoned before the Council and told to stay within his own house. On January 1554 he was sent to Newgate where he spent a year. On January 29, 1555 he was sentenced to death for denying the Christian character of the Church of Rome. On February 4, 1555, he was burned to death at Smithfield while his wife and children watched.|
Excerpt from NEHG Register 1851, Vol 6: After his sentence and condemnation on the 29th of January, before the Council, Mr. Rogers says in the account of his examination: "Well, my Lor," quoth I, "here I stand before God and you, and all this honorable audience, and take him to witness, that I never wittingly or wilfully taught any false doctrine, and therefore have I a good conscience before God and all good men. I am sure that you and I shall come before a Judge that is righteous, befoer whom I shall be as good a man as you; and I nothing doubt, but that I shall be found there a true member of the true Catholic Church of Christ, and everlastingly saved. And as for your false church, ye need not to excommunicate me further of it, I have not been in it these twenty years, the Lord be thanked therefor. But now ye have done what ye can, my Lord I pray you yet to grant me one thing."
"What is that?" quoth he.
"That my poor wife, being a stranger, may come and speak with me, so long as I live, for she hath 'ten children' that are hers and mine, and somewhat I would counsel her what it were best for her to do."
"No." quoth he, "She is not thy wife!"
"Yes my Lord, quoth I, "and hath been these eighteen years."
"Should I grant her to be thy wife?" quoth he.
"Choose ye," quoth I, "whether ye will or not, she shall be so nevertheless!"
"She shall not come at thee!" quoth he.
"Then I have tired out all your charity," said I.
On the 4th of February, A.D. 1555, being Monday, in the morning, he was warned suddenly by the keeper's wife of Newgate, to prepare himself for the fire; being sound asleep, with much shaking he could scarce be awakened, at length being raised and waked and bid to make hast, "Then," said he, "if it be so, I need not tie my points," and so was handed down to Bonner to be degraded. That done, he craved of Bonner but one petition, and was asked what that should be, "nothing" said he, "baut that I might talk a few words with my wife before my burning;" but this could not be obtained; then said he, "you declare your charity what it is;" and so was brought into Smithfield, by Chester and Woodroofe, Sheriffs of London, to be burnt, not being permitted to use many words, only exhorting the people to remain the confirmation thereof, was not only content patiently to suffer and bear all the bitterness and cruelty heaped upon him, but also most gladly to resign his life, and give his flesh to the consuming fire, a testimony of the same.
Woodroofe asked him, if he would revoke his abominable doctrine and evil opinion of the sacrament of the altar? He answered, "That which I have preached, will I seal with my blood!" then quoth Woodroofe, "thou art a heretic!" "That shall be known at the day of judgment!" replied he, "Well," quoth Woodroofe, "I will never pray for thee," "But I will pray for you," said Rogers; so he carried to Smithfield, saying the Psalm "Miserere" by the way; immense crowds collecting to see him pass, rejoicing and giving thanks to God for his constancy; among them, his wife and ten small children, one an infant at the breast, they too, joined in the acclamations to strengthen his courage, "comforting him in such a manner as if led to a wedding.
A little before burning at the stake, a pardon was offered, if he would recant, but utterly refused. There, in the presence of Rochester, Comptroller of the Queen's household, Sir Richard Southwell, both the Sheriffs, and a great concourse of people, the fire was put to him; and when it had taken hold of his legs and shoulders, like one feeling no smart, he washed his hands in the flame, as in cold water, and lifting them toward heaven, until entirely consumed by the devouring fire, most mildly this happy martyr yeilded his spirit in the hands of his Heavenly Father.
He was the first of all that blessed company with suffered in Queen Mary's time, and styled the Proto-Martyr.

||While residing at Cape Ann, he enlisted, May 1775, for twelve months in Capt. nathaniel Collins' Co., marched to Cambridge, and arrived on the day of the battle of Bunker Hill; joined Col. Moses Little's regiment and a few days after left for Prospect Hill, where he was employed in throwing up breastworks during the day and standing guard at night. he also served in Joseph Robey's Company.

He was in a privateer fitted out at Machias,Me.; was taken by a British man-of-war; was prisoner on board the British ship Jersey in New York harbor, with Andrew, his brother, but escaped; and sailed in a privateer from Cape Ann, capturing several prizes.
In his younger days John Newcomb followed the sea; was several times cast away, but managed to escaped in a "miraculous manner." He settled at Amesbury, 1777; afterwards removed to Newburyport, Machias, Me., and in 1792 to Eastport, Me., where he resided until his death. In 1802 he was granted land in Township 8, Lubec, Me.

||While Siegebert was still childless, Grimoald, his mayor of the palace, had persuaded him to adopt Grimoald's son Childeric as his own son After the adoption Dagobert was born. When Siegbert then died in 656, Grimoald had the four-year-old Dagobert carried off to a monastery in Ireland and kept there while Childeric was named king. It was not until Childeric was murdered about twenty years later in 675 that Dagobert was brought back from Ireland and proclaimed king of Austrasia.|
Dagobert was a good king, but his reign was short. Ebroin was his mayor of the palace, and it was henchmen of Ebroin that murdered Dagobert near Verdun on 23 December 678 while he was out hunting.
While he was in exile, Dagobert had married Mechtilde, and they became the parents of St. Adela of Austrasia. During his short reign, Dagobert founded religious establishments and the circumstances of his death caused him to be remembered as a martyr. His relics are at Stenay-sur-Meuse.

||While still a youth he emigrated fromLondon to Connecticut and settled in the town of Branford, probably at its founding, for his name appears several times on the first page of the town records, dated July 7, 1646.|
He seems to have looked around among the colonies for an advantageous place in which to settle, and the records show that he owned lands in Branford, and that in 1659 he purchased land in Hartford, from Jasper Gunn. But in that same year he moved to Farmington, which is a few miles westward from Hartford, though he did not sell his land in the latter place until 1664. He joined the church at Farmington in October 1661, and resided there until his death, which occurred November 5, 1709. he was one of the eighty-four proprietors in the first division of lands in Farmington.
