This column begins a series that will treat well-known descendants
of immigrants of royal ancestry who left a large progeny – especially a
sizable number of notables. I begin with Thomas Dudley (1576-1653),
governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony, whose descendants for five
generations have been recently treated by my friend Marston Watson in Royal
Families: Americans of Royal and Noble Ancestry, Volume One:
Governor Thomas Dudley and Descendants through Five Generations
(GPC, 2002). Marston missed Mrs. John Smibert, the Alleynes of Barbados,
and several children of “Signer” William Ellery, Jr., but his coverage
of New Hampshire descendants of Rev. Samuel Dudley, of the Connecticut
progeny of Mercy (Dudley) Woodbridge, and of the Boston “Brahmin”
descendants of Gov. Joseph Dudley is quite good, and I commend the book
to all genealogical libraries and everyone with Dudley ancestry.
Gov. Thomas Dudley is also the subject of a new hypothesized
patrilineal descent developed by David Humiston Kelley and Marshall K.
Kirk. Both the 1996 and 1999 editions of Plantagenet Ancestry of
Seventeenth-Century Colonists by David Faris, plus my own 1995 Ancestors
of American Presidents (hereafter AAP), pp. 200-1, and Notable
Kin, Volume One (1998, hereafter NK1), pp. 43-44, present
the major conclusion of Messrs. Kelley and Kirk, that Capt. Roger
Dudley, the governor’s father, was very likely the son of Sir Henry
Dudley and ____, daughter of Christopher Ashton. Sir Henry was in turn
the son of John Dudley, 3rd Baron Dudley (known as “Lord
Quondam [has-been]”), who bankrupted himself and his family, and Cecily
Grey, daughter (by Cecily Bonville) of Thomas Grey, 1st
Marquess of Dorset, son of Sir John Grey and Elizabeth Woodville, later
Queen of Edward IV, mother-in-law of Henry VII, and grandmother of Henry
VIII. The Roman Orsini line – and Medici and Farnese kinsmen – of
Elizabeth Woodville, and thus probably of Dudley, are covered in the
above NK1, pp. 34-44. “Lord Quondam” was the son of Edward
Dudley, 2nd Baron Dudley (and Cecily Willoughby), son of Sir
Edmund Sutton or Dudley (and Joyce Tiptoft), son of John Sutton, 1st
Baron Dudley (and Elizabeth Berkeley), son of Sir John Sutton and
Constance Blount. Constance was the daughter of Sir Walter Blount (d.
1403) by his Spanish wife, Sancha de Ayala, daughter of an alcalde
mayor of Toledo and sister of a great-grandfather of Juana
Henríquez, wife of Juan II, King of Aragon, and mother of Ferdinand V of
Aragon. Sometimes considered the first king of united Spain. Ferdinand
was the husband of Isabella of Castile, a sponsor of Columbus, and
ancestor of the Spanish and Austrian Habsburgs, kings of England,
France, Prussia, etc. See AAP, pp. 365-68 and Register 152
The royal descent of Dudley’s mother, Susanna Thorne, is outlined in
my 1993 compendium, The Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants
(reprinted, with addenda, in 2001 and 2002), pp. 251-52, and in F.L.
Weis, W.L. Sheppard, Jr. and David Faris, Ancestral Roots of Certain
American Colonists Who Came to America Before 1700, 7th
ed. (1992), lines 50, 30, 219, 218 (etc.). The “best” descent, fully
proved, for Susanna Thorne and Governor Dudley is from King John of
Magna Carta fame (d. 1216) through an illegitimate son, Reginald Fitz
Roy, and the Marmion, Grey of Rotherfield, Harcourt, Bessiles,
Fettiplace, and Purefoy families. I listed post-1960 articles on
Dudley’s ancestry in Register 141(1987):101. Since that time
Philadelphia scholar F. N. Craig has continued his survey of Susanna
Thorne’s ancestry in Register 142 (1988): 227-44, 150 (1996):
315-24, TAG 62 (1987): 43-46, 71 (1996): 200-5, 77 (2002): 57-65.
I have long felt that Gov. Dudley was not only an ur-father of
the Boston “Brahmins”; he was also, among immigrants of royal descent,
the colonial sire with the largest number of notable descendants. Listed
below, firstly, are those I treated in Notable Kin, Volumes One and
Two (1998, 1999), mostly as descendants of the poet Anne
(Dudley) Bradstreet through the mid-nineteenth century; of Rev. Samuel
Dudley, a frequent ancestor in northern New England; or of both Dudley
and Rhode Island founder Anne Marbury Hutchinson through (1) Denison,
Rogers, and Parkman, (2) Bradstreet, Cotton, Gookin, Tracy, and Jackson,
or (3) Atkins, Eliot, Morison, Tyng, and Marquand. In New England
Ancestors 1 (2000), 2:38-41, I treated the notable progeny of Gov.
Dudley and his second wife, the Lygon-descended Mrs. Katherine Deighton
Hackburne (also ancestress of the Atkins-Marquand group just mentioned)
through a granddaughter, Anne Dudley, daughter of Gov. Joseph, who
married John Winthrop, a great-grandson of Dudley’s rival. Lastly, I
treated Elizabeth Marion Ashton, wife of diplomat and historian James
Bryce, 1st Viscount Bryce, a Dudley-Deighton desendant via
Wade, Wyer, and Shed, among English figures of Lygon descent (NEXUS
16 : 200-1), and I covered President Seymour of Yale and the
wives of Presidents John Rogers, John Leverett, Jr., and Edward Holyoke
in columns on Yale and Harvard presidents (New England Ancestors 1
and Internet column #54).
The total number of notable Dudley descendants I have thus already
treated is sixty-six. Below are an additional thirty-four, who belong in
several groups. Boston “Brahmins” include Wendell Phillips, Mrs. Henry
Adams, Mrs, Bainbridge Colby, the Bundys, the second Mrs. Arthur M.
Schlesinger, Jr., Henry Lee Higginson, Ellery Sedgwick, Mrs. Archibald
Cox, Jr., and Elliott Lee Richardson. Political or intellectual figures
of Connecticut descent include President Ashbel Green of the College of
New Jersey, John Brown of Harper’s Ferry, Mrs. E. E. Hale, President D.
C. Gilman of Johns Hopkins, Mrs. E. A. MacDowell and U.S. senator Lowell
P. Weicker, Jr. Associated with New York (including belles-lettres, the
theater, and “society”) were Mrs. Hobart, Robert Sherwood, Lady Mendl,
Irene Castle, Mrs. Norman Mailer, and among tycoon families Mrs. L. C.
Tiffany and the Doubledays. Midwesterners of New England ancestry
include Benjamin Franklin Wade of Ohio and his niece, Mrs. Schuyler
Colfax, Jr., Mormons include one of the sixteen wives by whom Brigham
Young left descendants (among them a section of the Marriott hotel clan)
and British figures include wives of Lord Beaverbrook, the press baron,
and Labor foreign secretary Anthony Crosland. In column 14 of this
series, and at greater length in the forthcoming Holiday 2002 issue of New
England Ancestors, I treat the Dudley descent, via Woodbridge and
Alleynes of Barbados, of Viscountess Linley, daughter-in-law of the late
Governor Dudley’s living progeny probably exceeds ten million
Americans, mostly descendants of Rev. Samuel, poet Anne Bradstreet, or
Woodbridges. Following the link below to the list of sixty-six figures
already treated, my coverage of the additional thirty-four, in the usual
“Notable Kin” format, includes all of each figure’s lines from other
immigrants of royal descent, especially Samuel and Judith (Everard)
Appleton, the several Bulkeleys (including Mrs. Elizabeth St. John
Whiting), Mrs. Mabel Harlakenden Haynes [Eaton] and Gov. William Leete
of Connecticut, and William Goddard. The Appletons and Mrs. Goddard will
be subjects of future columns.
