Towneley-Townley



First Generation



1. Richard (Ricardus) de Towneley was born about 1216 in Burnley, Lancashire County, England and died in 1295 in England about age 79.

General Notes: In the year 1200, King John granted the land "Towneley" (meaning, Field belong to the Tuni) to Roger de Lacy, Norman landowner and Constable of Charter. In 1200 Roger de Lacy gave the "Tunleiu" to Geoffrey, Dean of Whalley, who had married the daughter of Roger de Lacy. Then in 1236 Richard (son of Geoffrey, Dean of Whalley) inherited Towneley Estate. He combined Towneley and Cecilia de Thunlaig estates when he married Cecilia.

History of Whalley, History of Burnley, Visitations, Pedigree, British Archives, and Manuscripts of Christopher Towneley.

According to Whitaker, the earliest known ancestor of the Towneleys of Burnley, Lancashire, England, was a Saxon named Spartlingus, the first Dean of Whalley upon record, who was living in 896 during the reign of King Alfred of England (d.899). As dean, he managed property of the church at the monastery of Whalley, collected the tithes and other revenues, and nominated the priests who served the church. All the early church records of Christian countries were in Latin which explains the spelling of the names of the deans. The coming of the Normans invaders in 1066 made little change in the operation of the church, but they did choose the Dean and set aside large areas of forest for the king and his friends to hunt deer and wild boar. The church collected the profits from large tracts of land as the parish of Whalley covered almost a third of Lancashire, but it was the Norman Lord living at the castle at Clitheroe who held all of Lancashire. Following the conquest, William I granted Clitheroe to Roger of Poitou, but later it passed into the hands of the de Lacy family.

Whitaker claimed that after the death of Spartlingus, the position of Dean passed from father to son down to Henricus 2nd, but since he based this solely on the writings of Abbot Lyndelay, it has not been accepted by the College of Arms. When Henricus 2nd died without heirs, his authority passed to his brother.
1st Dean: Spartlingus
2nd Dean: Liwolphus Cutwolphe, who supposedly acquired his name after cutting off the tail of a wolf while hunting in Rossendale.
3rd Dean: Cutwolphus
4th Dean: Henrius
5th Dean: Roburtus, who had five children, Henricus 2nd, Wilhielmus,
Galfridus, George, and Thomas. George and Thomas were witnesses to a charter of their brother Galfridus.
6th Dean: Henricus 2nd, Dean post Robertus.
7th Dean: Wilhielmus, Dean post his brother Henricus.
8th Dean: John, Dean post his father Wilhielmus; when John died without heirs, the honor of Dean of Whalley passed to his uncle Galfridus.
(according to the Towneley Pedigree at the Hall, the honor went directly from Wilhielmus to his brother Galfridus)
9th Dean: Galfridus, uncle of John, m. Alice, dau. of Roger de Lacy.
10th Dean: Galfridus 2nd (Geoffrey), after his father, alive in 1223.
11th Dean: Roger, son of Geoffrey, the last Dean of Whalley for in 1215 the church at Rome had banned priests from marrying.

By the 13th century, the Honor of Clitheroe had been divided up into five manors. About this time, Galfridus married Alice de Lacy, daughter of the Norman Lord Roger de Lacy of Clitheroe and Pontefract, the Constable of Chester. Lord de Lacy gave part of the village of Burnley, in the Manor of Ightenhill of the Honour of Clitheroe, to Dean Galfridus, namely "two oxgangs of land in Tunleia (the field belonging to the town) with their appurtenances and permission to build his home there when he pleased and the right to pasture cattle on Burnley Commons." The word "oxgang" and the right of common pasture shows there were villeins living in a hamlet which formed part of the village of Burnley, so Galfridus had the right to demand services from tenants. These tenants scraped a living from vegetables in their gardens, crops grown in a town field, and cattle kept on common land. When they built their wood huts at the end of their lots in a group with the land they leased fanning out around them, the huts created a hamlet. Close by in the village of Burnley were several other hamlets, named Westgate, Coal Clough, Fulledge, Burnley Wood and Healey.

Lord de Lacy's also gave Galfridus the right to hunt deer and wild boar "beyond his domains." He had the power to make this grant for he was responsible for the forests reserved for only the king and his supporters. Since Galfridus was dean of Whalley, he lived in the ancestral home at Whalley, but it is believed that he built a hunting lodge on Castle Hill, near the junction of Todmorden Road and the Bacup Road. Dr. Whitaker wrote in 1800 that there were obscure remains of trenches on the east side of the hill. The hunting grounds de Lacy provided for Galfidus adjoining Hapton extended from the head of Thursden on the east to Bradley Brook [Hapton] on the west, and from Saxifield Dyke on the north to Crombrok [Redwater Clough, Cliviger] on the south. Dean Galfidus and his wife Alice had three children: Geoffrey (Galfidus 2nd), Henry Gedling, and Robert of the church at Alvetham and later at Rochdale. When Dean Galfridus died, his namesake Geoffrey inherited his father's position as dean and the settlement from his mother's father. In 1224, Geoffrey left his estate including Tunleia, Snodesworth and Coldcoats (Caldecotes), part way between Whalley and Clitheroe, to his son Roger, the next dean. But since Roger was not allowed to marry, he gave these lands to his brother Richard about 1236. Roger died without issue in 1249. The names in italics in the remainder of the history have been recorded by the Royal College of Arms.

About 1250 Richard built the first house at Tunleia and adopted the name Towneley. This was not uncommon. (See the de Wolffs of Swabia) Even his uncle Henry Gedling, who was living in 1259, adopted the new surname, which indicates that he was living at Towneley. During Richard's lifetime the village of Burnley began to develop. In 1290 a corn-mill was built, and in 1294, Henry de Lacy obtained a charter from Edward I granting the right to have a weekly market on Tuesday in their manor of Burnley and a three day fair every year on the eve, day and morrow of the Feast of the Apostles Peter and Paul. However, it was not until the year after Richard's death that the a fulling-mill, where woolen cloth was finished, was built on the banks of the Brun not far from the church.

The children of Richard and his wife Cecelia were: Nicholas, Alicia, Agnes, and Cecelia. When Richard Towneley died in 1295, Nicholas inherited Snodesworth, Caldecotes, and two thirds of Tunleia, while the widow Cecelia "Thunlay," received one third of "Thunlay," and land at Worsthorne, Brunshaw [Bronshay], and Altoft, which she had brought to her marriage. As a settlement for her daughter Cecelia, the widow gave her holding at Worsthorne and Towneley to her new son-in-law, John de la Leigh, a landless gentleman living at the abbey. When Nicholas Towneley died without any heirs, his estate was divided between his sister Alicia, wife of Robert Hopkinson, and his sister Agnes, wife of John de Hargreaves. Since Alicia survived her husband and had no children, at her death her third of Towneley passed to her sister Cecelia 2nd, which she held in her own right as John de la Leigh had already been provided with her marriage settlement.

Richard (Ricardus) married Cecelia de Thunlaig about 1253 in England. Cecelia was born about 1230 in England and died in England.

Children from this marriage were:

   2 M    i. Nicholas de Towneley was born about 1254 in England and died in England.

General Notes: No heirs.

   3 F    ii. Alicia de Towneley was born about 1260 and died in England.

General Notes: No Children.

Alicia married Robert Hopkinson. Robert was born about 1258 in England and died in England.

General Notes: They had no children.

+ 4 F    iii. Agnes de Towneley was born about 1265 in England and died in 1323 in England about age 58.

+ 5 F    iv. Cecelia de Towneley was born about 1275 in England and died in 1323 in England about age 48.

Second Generation


4. Agnes de Towneley (Richard (Ricardus)1) was born about 1265 in England and died in 1323 in England about age 58.

Agnes married John de Hargreaves. John was born about 1263 in England and died in 1338 in England about age 75.

The child from this marriage was:

   6 M    i. William de Hargreaves was born about 1285 in England and died in England.

General Notes: In 1338, William de Hargreaves "granted to Richard de Towneley, son of John de la Leigh, the land and tenements which he had from his father in Towneley and the reversion of those of his mother and of Alice, the widow of Robert Hopkinson." In law, a reversion is the return of an estate to the grantor. Richard accepted the two for one trade because William's third included the manor of Towneley. William was probably well paid for his two shares of Towneley by Gilbert de la Leigh who wanted additional land near his Hapton property.

5. Cecelia de Towneley (Richard (Ricardus)1) was born about 1275 in England and died in 1323 in England about age 48.

Cecelia married John de La Leigh, son of Gilbert de La Legh and Alice, in England. John was born about 1275 in England and died in 1343 in England about age 68.

General Notes: About 1295 John de la Leigh inherited Townley Estate. A part of the abbey possessions in Cliviger, used as a grange, was alienated in 15 Edward I. (1287), being restored by the monks to the chief lord. Seven years afterwards, Henry de Lacy, Earl of Lincoln, had a charter for free warren in Clivacher (Rot. Chart, 22 Richard I., p. 1, n.23.); and in 30 Edward I. (1302) he granted this property to the De la Leghs, of whom John, marrying the heiress of Towneley, became progenitor of the Towneleys.

John de la Leigh lived at "The Old House," also called the White House, an ancient farmstead at the foot of Castle Hill in Cliviger. Cecelia died before 1323, and her one-third of Towneley was inherited by her husband. Since Gilbert de la Ley gave Hapton to his grandson Gilbert de la Leigh as a marriage settlement in 1336, John de la Leigh gave his wife's third and his own third of Towneley to his second son, Richard, who then assumed the surname de Towneley. After the death of John de Hargreaves, the husband of Cecelia's other sister, the third share of Towneley passed to his son William. In 1338, William del Hargreaves "granted to Richard de Towneley, son of John de la Leigh, the land and tenements which he had from his father in Towneley and the reversion of those of his mother and of Alice, the widow of Robert Hopkinson." In law, a reversion is the return of an estate to the grantor. Richard accepted the two for one trade because William's third included the manor of Towneley. William was probably well paid for his two shares of Towneley by Gilbert de la Leigh who wanted additional land near his Hapton property. In 1340, John de la Leigh received a new grant of corody from the Abbot and Convent of Whalley and moved back to the monastery. "He died in his father's lifetime."


Children from this marriage were:

+ 7 M    i. Gilbert de La Legh was born about 1308 in England and died in 1385 in England about age 77.

+ 8 M    ii. Sir Richard de Towneley was born about 1313 in England and died on 16 April 1381 in England about age 68.

   9 M    iii. Laurence de La Legh was born about 1318 in England and died in England.

Third Generation


7. Gilbert de La Legh (Cecelia de Towneley2, Richard (Ricardus)1) was born about 1308 in England and died in 1385 in England about age 77.

General Notes: Gilbert took his mothers maiden name of Towneley.

In 1336, Gilbert de la Ley gave Hapton to his grandson, Gilbert de la Leigh, as a settlement when he married Katherine, the daughter of Richard de Balderstone. Gilbert de la Leigh lived at Hapton and conducted his estate as a manor with a demesne farm (Castle Hill) and other farms rented by tenants. When Katherine died, Gilbert married Alice Vernon of Warforth, Cheshire, in 1344. He died during the reign of Richard. (6Rich2) His widow held his estate, including two thirds of Towneley, until she died in 1388. The Inquisition of her estate took place that same year.

Gilbert married Katherine Balderstone, daughter of Richard de Balderstone and Unknown,. Katherine was born about 1318.

Gilbert next married Alice Vernon in 1344 in England. Alice was born about 1318 in Warforth, Cheshire, England and died in 1388 in England about age 70.

The child from this marriage was:

   10 M    i. John de Legh was born about 1345 in England and died in England.

John married Claria Fenton, daughter of Thomas Fenton and Unknown,. Claria was born about 1345 in England and died in England.

8. Sir Richard de Towneley (Cecelia de Towneley2, Richard (Ricardus)1) was born about 1313 in England and died on 16 April 1381 in England about age 68.

General Notes: Esceator in 1371 and from 1375-1379 House of Commons and Sheriff of the county of Lancaster.

The first of the de la Leighs to use the Towneley name was Richard who was Sheriff of the county of Lancaster when he died in 1381 but it was his son John de Towneley (1350-1399) who acquired all the old Towneley land and sealed the settlement of his estates with the arms of three mullets and a fesse. It is believed that the earliest hunting lodge at Towneley was on Castle Hill and it was probably Richard or John who established the first house on the site of what is now Towneley Hall.
Meanwhile, Richard de Towneley had acquired the manor of Towneley in 1338. His wife Elena was mentioned in 1345 in a deed of Alice, the widow of Ralph de Stirzaker. They had four children: John, Robert, Henry and Alice.

Richard became a member of Parliament for the shire in 1361; his stay lasted 51 days and his pay was 19/12/00. In 1369, Richard was appointed a Commissioner to enforce certain statutes, including the Statue of Weights and Measures and the Statute of Labor, which fixed wages of manual laborers in Lancaster. He was not a staid politician; he was once accused of riotous behavior at Whalley Abbey. To pay debts, he borrowed money on his third of Towneley from his uncle, Thomas de la Leigh, who then held the right to collect the rents. In 1372 his uncle executed a deed of rents which forgave all debts of the manor of Towneley and other premises held in trust jointly with Robert Holden, the son of Adam Holden, which they had by grant of Elias de Briddetwisle, Rector of Warrington, and Robert de Boulton, chaplain. Robert Holden lost a lot of money, and his descendants still refer to Thomas as a swindler. (It was a descendant of these Holdens who years later arranged the emigration of James Maginnis of Whitehaven.) In 1375, 1376, and 1377, John of Gaunt appointed Richard as Sheriff of Lancaster, and in 1377 he was re-elected as a member of Parliament. Richard was still the Sheriff when he died in 1381. The Inquisition of his estate was held in 1381.

Richard married Elena in England. Elena was born about 1317 in England and died in England.

Fourth Generation


13. John de Towneley (Sir Richard de Towneley3, Cecelia de Towneley2, Richard (Ricardus)1) was born in 1350 in England and died on 8 September 1399 in England at age 49.

General Notes: An inquisition post mortem was held on his estate in 1410. The Towneley MSS contain a protection from King Richard II for the estate and effects of John while he went to Guines with Sir John Talbot (later earl of Shrewsbury).

John was reported as 31 years of age at the Inquisition of his father's estate in 1381. In 1382 he signed a marriage contract with Isabella, the daughter and heiress of William Rixton. They had two children, a son Richard and a daughter Matilda. John was sent by King Richard II on a special mission to Calais, but forfeited the protection of the king for staying in Kent on his own business from 1385 to 1389. While he was in Kent his aunt died, and at the age of 38, he inherited all her lands. In addition to Hapton, he now held all of Towneley. He sealed the settlement of his estates with "three mullets and a fesse" which was the seal used formerly by the de la Leighs. When Isabella died, he remarried, and in 1397 he became one of the coroners for the County of Lancaster. In 1399 he was "granted 6/13/4d. a year to stay with the King." He died that same year; at the time, his son was only 12 years of age. His widow Elizabeth remarried William Rigmayden, Esq., but she died Mar. 27, 1401. On Apr. 7, 1401, Richard was made the ward of William Rigmayden. However since Elizabeth had died, Richard and his sister Matilda later became the wards of Sir Thomas Fleming, the Baron of Wrath, the grandfather of Matilda's future husband William Fleming, the son and heir of Sir John Fleming, son and heir of Sir Thomas, and administration of the estate was given to Roger of Banastre. A Lancaster Inquest said Roger made a waste of the property.

John married Isabella de Rixton, daughter of William de Rixton and Unknown, in 1382 in England. Isabella was born about 1365 in England and died on 27 March 1401 in England about age 36.

General Notes: Ward of the Duke of Lancaster. Legally inherited estate in 1410. Fought with King Henry V at the Battle of Agincourt in October 1415.

In 1410 Richard got legal control of Towneley. That same year, a royal writ was issued ordering Richard and three others to be arrested and taken to Westminister for "trespass on the lands of Thomas Talbot of Hapton and taking away his cattle." (Towneley MSS) But it seems another Towneley was forgiven by a king who needed his services. Richard served in France under Henry V and took with him two footmen and three archers, all five being Towneley men from the estate. (V.C.H. VI, p. 456) In October 1415, they fought at the Battle of Agincourt. Richard's son John was born that same year; he and his wife Alice later had a son Richard. Sir Towneley restored good management to his estate and acquired new lands at Dutton and Clayton. Richard began building the main hall of Towneley in the early 15th century. Later two wings would be added and the property enclosed. He died about 1454, survived by his wife Alice. At the Inquisition of his estate in 1455, the manor at Towneley was worth ten pounds a year, for which Richard had paid a part of a knight's fee and a rent of 12/9d. Hapton and Bradley were worth 11 pounds a year, and Cliviger was worth ten pounds a year. The remaining estates were worth two pounds a year. His son John was his heir to the Towneley estate.

He carried out extended meteorological measurements and improved the micrometer (for use in astronomical observations). He introduced Flamsteed to the micrometer. As an astronomer he perpetuated the tradition of observation established in that region earlier by Horrocks, Crabtree and Gascoigne. He also investigated capillary phenomena and the use of the barometer to measure altitudes.

Towneley was also the first person to make systematic measurements of rainfall, using his own gauge design that he described in great detail in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. He collected rain in a tunnel twelve inches long, and fixed it to the roof of Towneley Hall. Rather than make separate measurements each day, he continually topped up a cylinder to give a running total, and so avoid multiplying small errors of measurement.

He began this experiment in 1677, recording up to three times a day for 26 years, while also recording temperature, wind and pressure. His measurements were the first systematic records to be kept, since when records have been taken almost continuously.

Francis Townley, Esquire of an honourable family in Lancashire, was Colonel of the Manchester Regiment, and one of the nine English gentlemen that suffered first upon Kennington Common, July 30th, 1746.
He behaved with conspicious zeal in the defence of Carlisle as a Colonel of the Manchester Regiment. There can be no doubt that had he been the governor the place would have held out to the very last, for when acquainted with the term of capitulation he "flew into a great passion with Colonel Hamilton, declaring that it would be better to die by the sword than fall into the hands of the damn Hanoverians." He had acquired great military experience while in the French army, a circumstance used to his disadvantage when he claimed to be a French officer under commission. His execution (by being hung, drawn and quartered) took place on Kennington Common on 30 July 1746. Towneley was one of the last persons to suffer that barbaric practice. It was ultimately abolished in England as a form of public punishment.
He met his unpleasant fate with courage and dignity, wearing a new black velvet suit which he had specially made for the occasion by a tailor in Southwark.

General Notes: From Landmarks of Tompkins County: "Townley, Richard, was one of the pioneers of Lansing, having come from New Jersey and settled in the town in 1793, and is remembered as having been among the foremost of the pioneers of the county."

Landmarks of Tompkins County - Lansing Richard and Charles TOWNLEY, brothers, originally from New Jersey, reached this town in December, 1792, coming by way of Ithaca, and built a log cabin which they occupied first on Christmas day. Once settled in their cabin, Charles left his brother and family and returned to the Susquehanna, not far from Wilkesbarre, where they had lived four years after leaving New Jersey. Richard TOWNLEY was a man of superior native talents, and though not well educated, was an intelligent reader, closely observant, and became remarkably well informed. He learned surveying and practiced it throughout the county, was supervisor of Milton in 1802; justice of the peace in 1804; associate judge of Cayuga county; member of assembly ten years from 1804. As school commissioner he divided the town into districts and sold the public school lots. He was a presidential elector in 1816, and delegate to the State Constitutional Convention in 1821. He left a family of ten children at his death, which occurred in 1840. His descendants have been prominent in the town. Gravestone in East Lansing Cemetery gives death as 1/1/1840, "aged 75 years and 11 months"Birth year from "History by Mrs. C.W. Conger" coincides with gravestone dates. From "History by Mrs. C.W. Conger": "Richard and Charles Townley [brother] married sisters, Polly and Betty Lewis and together they left Newark reaching Wyoming Valley in the Spring of 1788. Here they remained cultivating the rich flat land in the summer, and hunting, fishing and trapping in the winter for three years. When a company of French immigrants offered high prices in gold for all the valley lands, the brothers sold out, loaded Richard's family into the ox cart that had borne them on their first removal, yoked the cattle that were steers then, now grown into fine oxen, before it, and started in the early fall to cut their way through the woods to the lake country. Reaching Ithaca [New York] they embarked in a punt and landed near Ladoga Park, Lansing on Cayuga Lake, December 18, 1792, The brothers had bought a land warrant covering the lot of which the Townley homestead is a part but as there were no improvements on the land, they took possession of a roofless log house, a mile to the west of it until a better shelter could be provided. The men spared no haste in building a house and the family moved into their new home on the 25th, eating their Christmas dinner at home. Charles returned to Wyoming in the spring for his family. James came later. Richard had three months schooling and for books he had a desk full of old letters which would be worth much to the family historian now. With these advantages he acquired an education of considerable importance in the rapidly growing country in a manner to be remembered with filial pride by his descendants. He was a member of the legislature, he was associate judge, he was nearly always town supervisor and was always the cultured liberal Christian gentleman, the trusted friend and the advisor of his fellow townspeople. He taught himself mathematics and was state surveyor for many years, an office which was both lucrative and honorable in those times. Attached to the soldiers warrant by virtue of which the Townley homestead is held is the signature of George Washington and then of Dewitt Clinton, the originator of the idea of the Erie Canal, and Daniel D. Tompkins the great financier of his day written opposite to the great state seal upon credentials issued to him to attest the confidence reposed in the intelligence and propriety of this ancestor of ours."

General Notes: This letter was written to John Mann Townley by his father John Townley of Lynchburg Virginia on April 27th., 1835.
"Dear Son,
This is the first time I ever wrote to you. I have nothing of importance to write except constant sickness. I have never seen one well day for 2 years. Also my broken leg has never been well since it was broke. Your mother is in a very feeble state of health. also Sally is in the same situation. Nancy went the 1st. Dec. last to see Alvah and stayed until 3 weeks ago. Left all well but in low circumstances owing to a great deal of sickness.
Harriet has been very much subject to tooth and jaw ake for the last 2 or 3 months. Eliza was married 3rd of this month 2 year to a Yankee man named Willis Bradley, a blacksmith by trade, a very industrious and sturdy man, never gambles nor drinks. He is a poor man. They have one child, a daughter Mary Elizabeth, 14 months old. Martha was married last Christmas to Samuel Bailey a nephew of James Bailey of Lynchburg. He is a carpenter by trade. He is very industrious and a steady man but poor.
Melecue was married 8th of October last to Edna Taylor a daughter of Wm. Taylor of Amherst. He is living at Greenbrier Court House carrying on the taning business. How he is making out I cannot tell. Kelita's health is something better. He has 2 children living, one dead. Rebecca is teaching shool in Lynchburg at this time and for the last 2 or 3 years she taught in Buckingham County. Last winter was very cold and great many deaths. My being so infirmed I had to break up housekeeping every since last Christmas and since we have been living with our children, first one and then the other.
My dear Son, I want you to help me to about $25.00 or 30 more or less if you can spair it and send it on by the stage if you cannot make no private conveyance. You will please answer this letter as soon as you get it, as I am very anxoius to hear how you make out in your practive, also about your union as I am told you are married. With respect, your Father
John Townley"


The following obituary appeared in "The Lynchburg Virginian" on Aug 29, 1844. Four days after John Townleys death. The paper was owned by his son Kelita Ball Townley.
"Died at the resident of his son K. B. (my note, Kelita Ball) Townley on Sunday the 25 inst. Mr. Townley , aged 78 years 2 months and 26 days. About a year ago he professed a change of heart, but declined attaching himself to any branch of the Christian Church on account of his bodily infirmities being so great, as to prohibit him from attending to its duties, or enjoying the privileges. He had long expressed not only a willingness but a desire to die and when his hour came he met death with calmness and died without a struggle or a groan. As a husband and a father he would not have been more affectionate or kind. He had left an aged widow and a numerous family of children and grandchildren to mourn his departure as his kindness and amicability of disposition had so endeared him to his family as to render it painful in the extreme to part with him, not withstanding his affliction and old age."

"Died on the 4th. inst. at the residence of her son K. B. (my note Kelita Ball) Townley. Mrs. Elizabeth Townley, consort of the late Mr. John Townley of this place, aged 70 years. She professed religion at an early age and attached herself to the Baptist Church in which faith she continued firm until her death. Her affliction which was tedious and painful was bourne with patience and resignation and she assured her children and friends and she had no fear of death, no doubt of her acceptance with God. She had left 8 children and many grandchildren to mourn her departure, but they rejoyced to know their loss is her gain.

Hence, it was no wonder that the young man entered the service of his country when the War of 1812 broke out.

Later on in life he moved into the vicinity of Bellona, having married Miss Elizabeth Townley. For a while they lived on the farm just east of Mount Pleasant Cemetery about four miles southeast of Bellona. Then, for a while, they lived in the village of Bellona. Their family consisted of four boys and a daughter. One of the sons, Luther, purchased a home for himself about half a mile east of our village where his son and daughter now live, Mr. William and Miss Mary Meeker. The grandfather, Luther Meeker, the veteran of the war of 1812, dying, was buried in the Bellona Cemetery."

General Notes: Anglican Bishop. The third Bishop of Virginia, he was a founder of the Virginia Theological Seminary and later served as Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church in the Confederate States of America. Born to a distinguished family, he was raised in what was then a wilderness area of Virginia, graduated as valedictorian of his class at Princeton University (then, Nassau Hall) in 1808, then read theology with the Reverend Walter Addison of Maryland. Ordained to the Diaconate at Williamsburg's historic Bruton Parish in 1811, he was ordained a Priest in 1814. While serving as rector of a number of parishes, including Christ Church, Alexandria, he was part of the 1823 founding of the Virginia Theological Seminary where he to be president for a time.

Though Meade had freed his own slaves and was personally opposed to the peculiar institution he did not view the practice as sin from a Biblical perspective and tried to chart a middle course, being active in the American Colonization Society from 1818 on and encouraging masters to treat their subjects well and provide for their religious education. Meade received a Doctor of Divinity degree from the College of William and Mary in 1827 then in 1829 was Consecrated Bishop and named as auxilliary to Bishop Richard Channing Moore. Continuing his preaching and Seminary teaching he also authored several texts and was a central figure in the fight against the Oxford Movement, a 19th. century attempt to move the Anglican Church closer to the Roman Catholic Church. Promoted to Bishop of Virginia upon Dr. Moore's death in 1841 he was active evangelization efforts as well as in a number of major church discipline cases against Priests and Bishops. With the steadily worsening sectional strife of the 1850s Meade stood firmly against both secession and war but reluctantly followed when Virginia left the Union. When northern troops invaded his state, however, he changed his views, becoming a full supporter of the Confederate Army and of a separate Southern Church. After a period of steadily declining health he died while in Richmond for the Consecration of Bishop Richard Hooker Wilmer of Alabama. Bishop Meade gave his final blessing to General Robert E.
