Mrs. Alice Freeman Thompson Parke, ur-mother through her two
younger daughters of Stonington, Connecticut, and surrounding towns, is,
as I have previously written, both an ancestor of the late Princess of
Wales and Princes William and Harry, and a descendant herself of
Ethelred II “the Unready,” King of England (d. 1016). Mrs. Parke
probably migrated from Roxbury, Massachusetts to Wethersfield, New
London, and Stonington, Connecticut with her second husband, Robert
Parke (as the widow of John Thompson of Little Preston,
Northamptonshire, who died in England, she married Robert Parke shortly
after May 30, 1644). She is almost certainly the royally-descended
immigrant to Connecticut who left the largest known notable progeny. I treat Alice Freeman briefly in American Ancestors and Cousins
of The Princess of Wales (1984, with William Addams Reitwiesner;
hereafter AACPW), pp. 32, 143-44. In The Genealogist 4
(1983): 184, note #25, Neil D. Thompson calls to our attention an
article by Geoffrey W.S. Barrow in The Scottish Genealogist 25
(1978): 98, which disclaims any connection between Maldred, Lord of
Carlisle and Allerdale, to the royal house of Scotland. In addition, the
Capetian line via, among other families, Wake and Duston, first posited
by George Andrews Moriarty, Jr., and dependent on a stained-glass
window inscription, is no longer tenable. A new Carolingian line, via
Throckmorton, Spinney, Durvassal, de Camville, counts of Réthel and
Namur and dukes of Lower Lorraine, to Louis IV, King of France (d. 954),
is mentioned in the 2002 reprint, with addenda, of my 1993 compendium, The
Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants(hereafter RD500), pp.
657-58. An ancestor table of Alice (Freeman) (Thompson) Parke for 32
generations appears in Henry James Young, The Blackmans of Knight’s
Creek: Ancestors and Descendants of George and Maria (Smith) Blackman,
rev. ed (1980), which includes, however, the discarded Scottish and
Capetian lines. Alice (Freeman) (Thompson) Parke also appears in the 7th
(and earlier) editions of Ancestral Roots of Certain American
Colonists [Sixty Colonists](1992), lines 29A, 41-43, 34. Her
Giffard descent was first developed in TAG 13 (1936-37): 1-8,
14:(1937-38): 145-46, 29 (1953): 215-18 (articles by Clarence Almon
Torrey and Robert L. Steenrod). The ancestry Alice shares with Rev.
William Sargent of Malden, Mass. was developed by G. A. Moriarty, Jr.,
in volumes 75 and 79 of the Register.
Alice (Freeman) (Thompson) Parke, by her first husband John Thompson,
left three daughters who came to New England – Mary, wife of Joseph
Wise of Roxbury, Massachusetts. Bridget, first wife of Capt. George
Denison of Stonington; and Dorothy, wife of Thomas Parke of Stonington.
Mary was an ancestor of a sizeable number of Boston Brahmins, especially
through her daughter Sarah, wife of Stephen Williams. The immediate
progeny of Bridget and Dorothy is a maze of early Stonington/Preston
families (who are mostly very well covered in printed sources) –
Denison, Stanton, Chesebrough, Wheeler, Morgan, Gallup, Lay, Minor,
Palmer, Copp, Avery, Benjamin, Williams, Coit, Perkins, Witter,
Mary (Thompson) Wise left two daughters and three daughters’
daughters through whom various of the notables below are derived.
Bridget (Thompson) Denison left only two daughters (no sons), and seven
daughters’ daughters through whom, likewise, many of the notables below
are descended. Dorothy (Thompson) Parke left three daughters (in
addition to four sons) and nine daughters’ daughters through whom the
following descend. The first five or more generations of this progeny
are heavily matrilineal or “mostly maternal” (through more women than
men). The matrilineal descendants of Alice Freeman’s own mother’s
mother’s mother – Jane Bond, wife of Richard Coles – are being traced
(the form is called a “matrilineage”) by Julie Helen Otto of NEHGS.
The noted descendants of Alice Freeman are much like the New England
kinsmen generally of the late Princess of Wales – “a fair sample of the
Yankee and especially Connecticut contribution to American history.”
Involved in the Revolution, the Federalist mercantile elite of Salem and
Boston, “the flowering of New England,” the New York-centered tycoon
culture (with a base also in the Midwest), “400” society and an “eastern
establishment,” and the growth of the suburban middle class dominating
the Sun Belt and Far West. Migration itself was often to western
Massachusetts; Vermont; perhaps Nova Scotia; upstate New York; Ohio,
Illinois, Michigan, and Wisconsin; Mormon Utah; western mining, etc.
states, and the South and Southwest after World War II.
Among tycoon families below are Firestones, Fords, McCormicks, Mrs.
Paul Mellon, Rockefellers, Tiffanys, Mrs. W. C. Whitney, and Pierpont
Morgans. Political figures or their wives include President Warren
Gamaliel Harding and the wives of Vice Presidents Charles Warren
Fairbanks, Levi Parsons Morton, Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller and James
Schoolcraft Sherman, plus Malcolm Wallop, Mrs. Malcolm Baldrige, William
F. Weld, J. H. Choate, C. J. Bonaparte, Mrs. C. E. Hughes, T. E. Dewey,
Mrs. H. L. Stimpson, Robert Lansing, Seth Lowe, Mrs. C. R. Vance, R. S.
Baker, Mrs. McGeorge Bundy, G. F. Kennan, and Mrs. William McChesney
Martin, Jr. Military figures include Mrs. G. S. Patton, G. B. McClellan,
both wives of “Billy” Mitchell, and Admiral George Dewey. Major
intellectual or artistic figures (or their wives) include Mrs. J. H.
O’Hara, Mrs. Philip Rahv, Mrs. F. J. Turner, L. S. Auchincloss, Mrs. A.
B. and Louisa May Alcott, B. G. Goodhue, C. D. Gibson II, E. R.
Burroughs, Mrs. Jacques Barzun, Mrs. Edward R. Murrow, Mrs. E. E. Hale,
Mrs. E. A. MacDowell, Mrs. L. C. Tiffany, Archibald MacLeish, Mrs. Louis
Bromfield, Thomas Pynchon, Clarence Day, J. L. Motley, Mrs. Enrico
Caruso, Mrs. J. W. Root, L. F. Baum, G. H. Gallup, S. P. Langley, Mrs.
S. F. B. Morse, Mrs. S. E. Morison, Martha Graham, and Sir Thomas
Beecham, 2nd Bt. (his second wife). Hollywood or
entertainment figures are Katharine Hepburn, Julia Child, Lee Remick,
Mrs. John Barrymore and Mrs. Eddie Duchin, Humphrey Bogart, Mrs. Rudolph
Valentino, and Mrs. “Gene” Tunney. College presidents include Seymour
and Brewster of Yale, and Kirkland of Harvard.
I have outlined elsewhere the descent from Alice Freeman to all of
the figures below. The first 57 are outlined and referenced in Notable
Kin, Volumes Oneor Two(NK1, NK2),
in New England Ancestors (NEA), or in Internet columns 53,
C. J. Bonaparte and the late Princess of Wales appear in RD500,
pp. 436-37, 469. The Alice Freeman lines of #s 58-100 are outlined, but
not referenced, in AACPW, so I have taken this opportunity to
reference them below. I hope many readers who are Alice Freeman
descendants will consult the various volumes I have mentioned, and enjoy
seeing this list in one place. Despite my listing 100 notable
descendants for her, I do not think that Alice Freeman has quite as many
lesser-notable descendants as Gov. Thomas Dudley, and thus a smaller
noted progeny overall. Alice’s is certainly, however, the premier
royally-descended progeny in Connecticut.
