The story of our English ancestry is not complete without including the ancestries of at least three of our English "great" grandmothers.

These are: Alice Smythe, wife of Sir William Harris of Creeksea and the mother of our
immigrant ancestor, John Harris; Dorothy Waldegrave, wife of Arthur Harris who died in
1597 and the mother of Sir William Harris of Creeksea; and Johanna Percy, wife of Arthur Harris, who was born about 1476 and the great-grandmother of Sir William Harris of Creeksea.

The two latter "great-grandmothers" have family ties into the Norman Kings of Englan­d. For the purpose of constructing a proper foundation for those ties, we will begin that part by showing such lineages from their earlier roots.

Will begin with the ancestry of Lady Alice Smythe Harris. This writer is especially grateful to a friend and kinsman for his assistance in this part. The re­search for the ancestry of Lady Alice Smythe Harris was done by Luther Pryor Harris (d125/5176/13) of Seminole, Florida.

The Ancestry of Lady Alice Smythe Harris

 

1.   Sir Andrew Judd; b. 1490-92; d. 1558.

Andrew was born at Tonbridge (about 40 miles from London) in Kent County, England. He was the son of Margaret Chichle of Canterbury and John Judd (also spelled Judde). Andrew, at the age of 17 years, moved to London and worked in the fur trade. He served an eight year apprenticeship and worked as a stapler, skinner and merchant in London and in Calais (Calais, on the continent, was then a part of England).

Andrew was quite successful in the London business arena and in public service. He served as; Mayor of the Staple, Master of the Skinners Company, Sheriff of London and Alderman of London. He made his home in the Bishopsgate community of London.

Andrew served as Lord Mayor of London in the years 1550-51. After serving as Mayor, Andrew was knighted by King Edward VI, (son of King Henry VIII).

Sir Andrew Judd aspired to build a free grammar school for the youth of his hometown, Tonbridge. He secured a charter from King Edward VI for that purpose in 1553. The school which he built in Tonbridge is still in existence serving the young people of England.

Andrew married Mary Matthews. After Mary's death, Andrew married a second time, and, also, a third time. Andrew is buried at St. Helens Church, Bishopsgate, in London.

      Children of Mary Matthews and Sir Andrew Judd:

A.           Martha Judd; b. c. 1522; d. c. 1578. Martha married Robert Golding.

B.            Alice Judd; b. c. 1525.

Alice married Thomas Smythe (b. 1520; d. 1591).

Thomas was best known as Mr. Customer Smythe of Ostenhanger (now Westenhanger), Kent. His parents were Joan Brounckner, a daughter of Robert Brounckner of Melkshan, and her husband, John Smythe, Esquire (d. 1538), of Corsham, County Wiltshire.

Thomas was appointed by Queen Elizabeth I to be her "Collector of the Queen's Majesties Subsidy for tonnage and poundage, and farmer for the Custome and Subsidy inwards". From this office, he received his nickname, "Customer".

Thomas Smythe constructed the central part of Corsham Court, in Wiltshire, in 1582. This edifice, which exists today, was sold by Thomas' son, Henry Smythe, on June 21, 1602 to the Methuen family.

The Smythes are interred at St. Marys Church at Ashford, England. Some of their tombs are ornated by statues of them.

Sir Thomas Smythe; b. 1558; d. September 4, 1625.

Thomas was the brother of Lady Alice Smythe Harris and the brother in law of Sir William Harris of Creeksea Place. Thomas was born in Ostenhanger (now Westenhanger) in Kent. Thomas was skilled as an English entrepreneur and statesman. He accumulated a considerable fortune from commerce.

Thomas was a key participant in the establishment and maintenance of the Virginia Colony in North America. Thomas led in numerous trade ventures and voyages of exploration during the early part of the seventeenth century. He financed the search for a northwest sea route from North America to the Orient.

Thomas was an active member of the London Haberdashers and Skinners Companies. He was an organizer in 1600, and, except for the period 1606-07, served as governor of the East India Company until 1621. He served as governor of the Muscovy and French Companies. He was special Ambassador for King James to the Tsar of Russia in 1604-05. Thomas was knighted in 1603 by King James I.

Sir Thomas obtained the Charter of the Virginia Company (of London) in 1609 and was Treasurer until 1618 when charges of embezzlement, later proved to be false, forced his resignation. His labor, perseverance and money were largely responsible for the success of the Virginia Colony.

As governor of the Somers Islands (Bermuda) Company, organized in 1615, Thomas devel­oped the Bermuda Islands with close economic and political ties to Virginia. He was also a major promoter of voyages to find a Northwest Passage to the Orient. Smith Sound (between Ellesmere Island and Greenland) was named in his honor, by its dis­coverer, William Baffin, in 1616.

The picture of Sir Thomas Smythe is included herein.

This writer is especially grateful to a friend and kinswoman, Mrs. Franceine Perry Rees (d121/3411/1111/1) of Greenville, North Carolina, for sharing with the writer her research into the lineage of Dorothy Waldegrave, wife of Arthur Harris (d. June 18, 1597) and mother of Sir William Harris of Creeksea.

He was born on May 20, 1364, the son of Sir Henry Percy, the First Earl of Northumbria (at that time called Northumberland). Northumbria, in the north of England, was on the border of Scotland.

The Percy family had enormous prestige and influence in England. They were closely related to several other families with close ties to the royal family.

A great deal of confusion as to whom should be King of England came after the long reign of King Edward, III. As long as John of Gaunt (son of King Edward, III) lived, there was stability in the country. After John's death, the country was divided into competing camps. John had been the Duke of Lancaster. His brother, Edmund of Langley, had been the Duke of York. After their deaths, their families were arrayed against each other in competition for the throne. The Percy family as well as some other families were caught in the middle of this struggle. Many Percy family lives were lost as results of this struggle. This struggle, known as the War of Roses, lasted for 85 years.

For example, Henry Bolinbroke, the son of John of Gaunt, insisted that the Percys assist him in his efforts to depose King Richard II and become King himself. They did assist him. They raised an army and removed Richard from the throne. Bolinbroke became Henry IV. He rewarded the Percys for their help.

After a time, Henry failed to keep his commitments. The Percys agreed to help others depose Henry IV, They, again, raised an army. Henry, however, learned of the effort and engaged them with his own forces. Sir Henry Percy (Hotspur) was killed in the battle on July 21, 1403. His father escaped and continued the fight. The elder Percy was captured in due time. As a lesson to others, Henry IV had the elder Percy killed. His head was hung on the London Bridge. His body was cut into chunks and delivered in parcels to the other Earls in England.

William Shakespeare used some of these activities for his plays, such as RICHARD II, HENRY IV, ROMEO AND JULIET and others.

Sir Henry Percy (Hotspur) was a character in some of the plays.

24.         Sir Henry Percy; b. February 3, 1392; d. May 22, 1455. He was Earl of Northum­bria. He was killed at the first battle of St. Albans. He married Eleanor Ne­ville, daughter of Sir Ralph Neville. Eleanor's mother was Joan Plantagenet, alias Beaufort, daughter of John of Gaunt.
