Henry I (c. 1068/1069 - 1 December 1135) was the fourth son of William I the Conqueror, the first King of England after the Norman Conquest of 1066. He succeeded his elder brother William II as King of England in 1100 and defeated his eldest brother, Robert Curthose, to become Duke of Normandy in 1106. He was called Beauclerc for his scholarly interests and Lion of Justice for refinements which he brought about in the rudimentary administrative and legislative machinery of the time.

Henry's reign is noted for its political opportunism. His succession was confirmed while his brother Robert was away on the First Crusade and the beginning of his reign was occupied by wars with Robert for control of England and Normandy. He successfully reunited the two realms again after their separation on his father's death in 1087. Upon his succession he granted the baronage a Charter of Liberties, which formed a basis for subsequent challenges to rights of kings and presaged Magna Carta, which subjected the King to law.

The rest of Henry's reign was filled with judicial and financial reforms. He established the biannual Exchequer to reform the treasury. He used itinerant officials to curb abuses of power at the local and regional level, garnering the praise of the people. The differences between the English and Norman populations began to break down during his reign and he himself married a daughter of the old English royal house. He made peace with the church after the disputes of his brother's reign, but he could not smooth out his succession after the disastrous loss of his eldest son William in the wreck of the White Ship. His will stipulated that he was to be succeeded by his daughter, the Empress Matilda, but his stern rule was followed by a period of civil war known as the Anarchy.

 

William the Conqueror

France

Also known as William of Normandy and William the Bastard, King William I of England was the illegitimate son of Duke Robert of Normandy, France. Though his blood claim to the throne of England was slim, he set his sights on the land once governed by his cousin, Edward the Confessor, and claimed the old king had named him his heir. In October of 1066, William the Conqueror successfully invaded England and defeated Harold Godwinson to win the crown.

As King of England William initiated or oversaw numerous changes, including an extensive plan of castle-building and a more rigidly structured system of feudal government than England had previously known. The Anglo-Saxon population was ruled primarily by William's Norman comrades, resulting in a gulf between two classes that took centuries to shrink.

One of King William's most significant acts was to comission the Domesday Survey, which catalogued the population of England and to this day serves as useful data for the historian. William also ordered the building of the Tower of London and Battle Abbey.

Robert Bruce d.1295:

The increasing landed wealth of the Bruces by the end of the thirteenth century came about through good marriages; particularly significant is the marriage of Robert (d1230), fourth Lord of Annandale to Isabel, second daughter of David Earl of Huntington. This brought the Bruces of Annandale, through inheritance, lands in the eastern Midlands of England and important lands of Garioch in Aberdeenshire. This marriage also provided the Bruces with an important link with the Scottish royal family, as David Earl of Huntington was the grandson of David I of Scotland. Further land was gained through the marriage of this Robert's son, Robert Bruce (d1295), the future King's grandfather, to Isabel, daughter of Gilbert de Clare, Earl of Gloucester and Hereford in1240, and in 1280 his marriage to his second wife Christine, daughter of William de Ireby of Cumberland.

Notes for ROBERT I BRUCE "THE BRUCE" KINGS OF SCOTLAND:

Robert Bruce

Robert Bruce (1274-1329), liberator, and, as Robert I, king of Scotland (1306-1329). He was originally named Robert de Bruce, and to distinguish him from his father and grandfather, who had the same name, he is often referred to as Robert de Bruce VIII. He is also called Robert the Bruce. As earl of Carrick he paid homage to King Edward I of England, who, in 1296, defeated King John de Baliol and thereafter refused to acknowledge another king of Scotland. Bruce later abandoned Edward's cause and joined other Scottish leaders in taking up arms for the independence of his country. In 1299, the year after the Scottish patriot Sir William Wallace was defeated by Edward at Falkirk, Bruce, then still in favor with Edward, was made one of the four regents who ruled the kingdom in the name of Baliol. In 1305 he was one of those consulted in the decision to make Scotland a province of England. In 1306 he met an old enemy, the Scottish patriot John Comyn, who was the nephew of Baliol; a quarrel occurred, and Bruce stabbed Comyn. Bruce proclaimed his right to the throne, and on March 27, 1306, he was crowned king at Scone.

Bruce was deposed, however, in 1307 by Edward's army and forced to flee to the highlands and then to the little island of Rathlin on the coast of Antrim (now in Northern Ireland). In his absence all his estates were confiscated, and he and his followers were excommunicated. He continued to recruit followers, however, and in less than two years he wrested nearly all of Scotland from the English. Bruce again defeated the English in 1314 in the Battle of Bannockburn (see Bannockburn, Battle of), twice invaded England, and in 1323 concluded with King Edward II of England a truce for 13 years. After the accession of King Edward III in 1327, war again broke out, and the Scots won again. In 1328 they secured a treaty recognizing the independence of Scotland and the right of Bruce to the throne.

In his later years Bruce was stricken with what is believed to have been leprosy and lived in seclusion at Cardross Castle, on the northern shore of the Firth of Clyde, where he died. He was succeeded by his son, David II. Bruce's grandson, Robert II, who succeeded David, was the first king of the Stuart house of English and Scottish royalty.

Notes for CULTBERT CUNNINGHAM:

n 1220 Malcolm, son of Fergus de Cunninghame, founds Cunningham branch of Ranfurly. Richard de Cunningham's son Harvey distinguishes himself against the Norwegians in 1263 at the Battle of Largs near Ayrshire's coast. In 1264 Richard is granted Kilmaurs by Alexander III. Edward Cunningham, father of Reginald Cunningham, founder of the Cunningham branch of Glengarnock dies in 1290. In 1295 Robert Cunningham fights along with Robert the Bruce against John Balliol, and becomes the founder of the Cunninghams of Polmaise. Robert Cunningham, the nephew of Edward Cunningham, is beheaded by the English, his head placed atop the tower of Lochmaban Castle in 1299.

1306-1398

In 1306 Robert the Bruce proclaims himself King of Scots; a Robert Cunningham declares for Bruce. In 1314 Edward II is defeated at Bannockburn. James Cunningham, son of Gilbert, is granted Hassendean in Roxburghshire by Robert the Bruce in 1318. Two years later Robert Cunningham is granted lands in Cunninghame, Lambruchtan and Grugar by Bruce.

 

Sir William Cunningham (I), son of Hugh de Cunninghame, sits in the Scottish Parliament in 1344. Two years later the Scottish King David II is captured by English at the Battle of Neville's Cross; Robert, grandson of Hugh de Cunninghame, gives himself as ransom for the king. Robert's brother, Thomas, becomes ancestor of the Cunninghams of Caprington, Enterkine, and Bedland.

 

In 1366, Sir William Cunningham (I) is made Earl of Carrick. Eight years later he is made Sheriff of Ayr but dies sometime between 1396 and 1399. His son, Sir William Cunningham (II), is knighted in 1384. One year later Sir William Cunningham (II) helps defeat the army of the Duke of Lancaster.

 

Hugh de Cunninghame, son of Robert Cunningham, is granted Polquhairn in 1388. His son, Alexander, ancestor of the Cunninghams of Drumquhassil, Ballindaloch, Balbougie, and Banton, dies. Sir William Cunningham (II) obtains Danielston, Kilmarnock, Finlaystone and Glencairn in 1390 and eight years later is granted the Barony of Redhall by Robert III.

1409-1499

Sir William Cunningham (II) is made Sheriff of Ayr in 1409. Margaret, the wife of Sir William Cunningham (II) dies, and he marries Margory Mary Stewart, daughter of King Robert III. In September of 1413, Sir William Cunningham (II) dies.

 

Between 1418-26, William Cunningham (III), second son of Sir William Cunningham (II), becomes perpetual Vicar of Dundonald and Canon of Glasgow. He is the ancestor of the Cunninghams of Cunninghamhead. In 1421 Henry Cunningham, third son of Sir William Cunningham (II), fights in the Battle of Beauge. Three years later Sir Robert Cunningham, 1st son of Sir William Cunningham (II), gives himself as ransom for King James I. On May 21st, 1424, Sir Robert is knighted by King James I.

 

The next year Sir Robert Cunningham serves on the jury of Murdock Stewart Duke of Albany, regent during James I's captivity, who made little effort to get the king released. Sir Robert's son, Archibald Cunningham, receives Waterton. In August 1430, Sir Robert Cunningham shares a joint commission with his wife's brother, Sir Alexander Montgomery, to govern and defend Kintyre and Knapdale.

 

In 1448 Sir Alexander Montgomery, Sir Robert Cunningham's brother-in-law, is made Bailie of Cunninghame, a title which belonged to Sir Robert Cunningham. This event sparked the bloody Montgomery-Cunningham feud. In the years 1452 to 1455 Sir Alexander Cunningham, son of Sir Robert Cunningham, helps King James II defeat the Douglas' and is granted the Barony of Kilmaurs, and the lands of Kilmarnock, Hilton, Finlaystone and Glencairn. His 2nd son, William Cunningham becomes ancestor of the Cunninghams of Craigends, Robertland, Cairncurin, Bedlaw, Auchinharvie and Auchenyards. For his service to the king, Sir Alexander Cunningham is made Bailie of Cunninghame in 1458, frustrating the Montgomerys.

 

In 1460, Sir Alexander is accused of collaborating with a traitor, but is acquitted when King James III comes to his defense. Sir Alexander is recognized as Lord Kilmaurs by King James III in 1462 and sits in Parliament from 1464 to 1488. In 1484, Sir Alexander, son of Sir Robert Cunningham, officially moves the seat of Clan Cunningham to Finlaystone. In May of 1488, Sir Alexander Cunningham is made 1st Earl of Glencairn by royal charter, and receives Drummond and Duchray in Lennox for helping to defeat the rebels at Blackness. In June, Sir Alexander Cunningham and his king, James III, are killed at the Battle of Sauchieburn. In October, King James IV revokes all titles given by his father. Sir Alexander Cunningham's son and heir, Robert Cunningham, is stripped of his title of 2nd Earl of Glencairn, but retains the earlier title of 2nd Lord Kilmaurs. The Montgomerys burn down the Cunningham's Kerelaw Castle.

Robert Cunningham, 2nd Earl of Glencairn, sits in Parliament in 1489, but dies three years later. His son, Cuthbert, becomes 3rd Lord Kilmaurs. Hugh of Eglinton, Lord Montgomery, is made Bailie of Cunninghame in 1498, and in 1499 Cuthbert Cunningham, leads the Clan in an attack on Irvine.

3. Cuthbert Cunningham, 3rd Earl of Glencairn; married (contract dated 24 June 1492) to Lady Mariot or Marion Douglas (died after Jul 1511), eldest daughter of Archibald, 5th Earl of Angus and Elizabeth Boyd. Cuthbert died between 23 May 1540 and May 1541.

The Dictionary of National Biography wrongly calls Cuthbert Robert. He had a number of charters as Lord Kilmaurs but had regained his grandfather's earldom by 1503. He tried unsuccessfully to rescue King James V from the control of the Douglas family, but was defeated at Linlithgow on 4 September 1526.

He was born 1716 in Lagan Valley, Donegal , Ireland, and died July 17, 1763 in Kerr Creek, Augusta Co Va.

 

Notes for REBECCA CUNNINGHAM:

The family Cunningham take their name from the district of Cunningham in Northern Ayrshire. The land of Kilmaurs of that area was granted by Hugo De Moreville, Constable of Scotland to a vassel named Warnebald in the 12 th century and it is from his descendants that the Cunningham family originate.

 

Cunningham is a Scottish place name that described the man from the location near Kilarmock and first recorded in 1153 as Cunegan, a word with Breton origins. The spelling with -ham added it earliest know mention in 1180. When of Irish origin, Cunningham is the Anglicized form of O'Cuinneagain meaning descendant of Cuinneagan, a form of Conn meaning leader, chief.

 

Notes for CHARLES DAUGHERTY:

born ca 1716, Lagan Valley, Donegal, married Rebecca Cunningham(?), and was killed by Indians 17 Jul 1763, on Kerr Creek, Augusta Co., in a raid by Cornstalk's braves, on a Sunday morning when most of the inhabitants were away at church, in what became Rockbridge Co. Charles moved to Augusta Co. with his father from Chester Co., PA, by 1738, and by 1745 settled on Kerr Creek.

In 1763, William's wife Elizabeth was a heroine in the terrible raid by Cornstalk; the Shawnees were seen from Fort Young on Jackson River and an express was sent to William Dougherty's, but he was away from home, so Elizabeth mounted and raced up the Cowpasture valley warning settlers, who fled to the mountains before the Indians arrived. The settlers of Kerr Creek were less fortunate and Charles Dougherty, among others, was killed.

 

From - Annals of Augusta County, Virginia from 1726 to 1871 by Jos. A Waddell

"The smaller band of Indians made their descent upon Kerr's creek on the 17th of July (1763). Their number was twenty-seven, Robert Irvin having counted them from a bluff near the road at the head of the creek. Some weeks before, two boys, named Telford, reported that when returning from school they had seen a naked man near the path. This report was not much thought of till the massacre, when it was supposed that the man seen by the boys was an Indian spy sent out to reconnoiter....

From this point they had a full view of the peaceful valley of Kerr's creek. Hastening down the mountain, they began the work of indiscriminate slaughter. Coming first to the house of Charles Daugherty, he and his whole family were murdered. They next came to the house of Jacob Cunningham, who was gone from home, but his wife was killed, and his daughter, about ten years of age, scalped and left for dead. She revived, was carried off as prisoner in the second invasion, was redeemed, and lived for forty years afterwards, but finally died from the effects of the scalping. The Indians then proceeded to the house of Thomas Gilmore, and he was and his wife were killed, the other members of the family escaping at that time. The house of Robert Hamilton came next. This family consisted of ten persons, and one-half of them were slain. By this time the alarm had spread through the neighborhood, and the inhabitants were flying in every direction. For some reason the main body of the Indians went no farther..... The people on Kerr's creek had repaired the losses...basically Indians attacked again, only there were more of them. the wife of Thomas Gilmore, standing with her three children over the body of her husband, fought with desperation the Indian who scalped him. She and her son, John, and two daughters, were made prisoners....

An entire family of Daughertys, five Hamiltons, and three Gilmores were slain....Mrs. Gilmore struck up, with plaintive voice, the 127th Psalm of Rouse's version....The Indians then separated into several parties, dividing the prisoners among themselves. Mrs. Gilmore and her son, John, fell to one party and her two daughters to another. The last she ever heard of the latter was their cries as they were torn from her.....the mother and son were also parted, she being sold to French traders and the boy retained by the Shawnees. Finally he was redeemed and brought back by Jacob Warwick to Jackson's river where he remained till his mother's return."

 

Long before any white man had explored the entire Kentucky area, it was claimed by Virginia as part of her Augusta County. Daniel Boone brought his family to Kentucky in 1773; established the first permanent settlement in Kentucky at Harrodsburg in 1774, and a year later founded Boonesboro. That same year, 1775, John Daugherty, the first of the family in Kentucky, came to the area a few miles from Boonesboro which would become Lincoln County.

Our part of the Daugherty migration to Kentucky was the second wave, descendants of Charles Daugherty and wife Rebecca in the 1780s, ten years after his brother Michael Daugherty II's sons. After Charles was killed by Indians in Augusta Co., VA in 1763, his widow and children remained there about ten years before some moved west into Kentucky.

Charles and Rebecca's son Cornelius, born ca 1729 probably in Pennsylvania, was a weaver who immigrated with his father and grandfather to Augusta Co. from Chester Co., PA in 1738. Cornelius served in Capt. George Robinson's company of militia in 1742. From 1742-49 Cornelius and his wife (1) Mary Hill lived on Cedar Creek on the North fork of the Roanoke in Augusta Co. They had, according to one book, six sons and six daughters, but not all their names are known; only George H., Noble, Ann, William, Isabel, Christopher, Abraham, Robert, Alexander, and Thomas Daugherty. Mary Hill died and Cornelius married about 1770 (2) Agnes _____. They had William, James Hill, John, and Cornelius R., Jr.

 

Charles Daugherty had, besides Cornelius, William, Thomas, and David, a son Daniel who in 1779 operated an iron works on Irish Creek of South River, Augusta Co., VA, not far from brother David's Mill Creek farm. Other brothers were Anthony, who died in 1792, Rockbridge Co., VA, and James who acted as Anthony's executor. The first tax list of the new Rockbridge Co. (taken out of Augusta) in 1778 listed James, William, and George Daugherty. In 1782 James, Anthony, William and Thomas were on the list. James started an iron works in Wythe Co., VA 1783-90, and is said to have died there in 1799.

 

Between 1755 and 1756, CHARLES served in the Augusta Co. militia during the French and Indian war. In Jul 1763, CHARLES was killed by Indians in a raid by Cornstalk's braves on Kerr Creek, on a Sunday morning when most of the

She married DAVID TRIMBLE 1746 in Augusta County, Virginia, son of ROBERT TRIMBLE and HANNAH UNKNOWN. He was born 1720 in Scotland, and died 1799 in Bourdon Co, KY.

 

Notes for MARY HOUSTON:

Elizabeth, in which she said her Mother was a Houston. Also Gen. Sam Houston studied Law under James Trimble, a great-nephew of David., from Nashville, TN. Gen. Houston described James as a "Kinsman". The Houston's and Trimble's lived on neighboring plantations in VA, the birthplace of Gen. Sam Houston.

 

Notes for DAVID TRIMBLE:

DAVID2 TRIMBLE (ROBERT1) (Source: (1) AUGUSTA COUNTY, VA, Chalkley's Chronicles - 20th Nov 1764, for David Trimble, Page 364., (2) AUGUSTA COUNTY, VA, Chalkley's Chronicles; Vol 3: David Trimble, PP 270-279., (3) Chalkley's Chronicles Vol 2, Note: David Trimble.) was born Abt. 1720 in Scotland, and died 1799 in Bourbon County, KY. He married MARY HOUSTON 1746 in Augusta County, Va, daughter of JOHN HOUSTON II. She was born Abt. 1725 in Augusta County, Va, and died Bef. 1799.

 

Notes for DAVID TRIMBLE:

1. David Trimble immigrated to America Abt. 1730 from Armagh County, Ireland.

2. David TRIMBLE, born Abt. 1720 in Scotland; died 1799 in Bourbon Co., KY. He was the son of John TRIMBLE. He married Mary HOUSTON 1746 in Augusta Co., VA. Mary HOUSTON, born Abt. 1725 in Augusta Co., VA; died Bef. 1799.

3. He was one of five brothers coming to America from Scotland by way of Armagh County, Ireland in the early 1730's. Settled first in New Castle, PA. David's wife was a Houston. We can find no court records of his marriage, but there was an old letter, written by his eldest daughter, Elizabeth, in which she said her Mother was a Houston. Also Gen. Sam Houston studied Law under James Trimble, a great-nephew of David., from Nashville, TN. Gen. Houston described James as a "Kinsman". The Houston's and Trimble's lived on neighboring plantations in VA, the birthplace of Gen. Sam Houston. MacLysaght says TRIMBLE is an English surname found as early as 1659 in Ulster.

4. David and his brother Moses are reported by Martha (Grigsby) Trimble in her letter of 1845 to have "moved westward and settled in KY or Tennessee."

5. David lived on waters of Middle River in Augusta County, VA; died in 1799 in Bourbon County, Ky, where his will dated September 6, 1798 was recorded June 1799.

6. The first time David was mentioned in the Augusta County, VA records was when he was named as a tithable for road duty along with Walter, James and John Trimble.

7. He witnessed a deed in Augusta County in 1745 and was a land owner in 1746. On August 2, 1747 his son James was baptized by Rev. Craig. A David Trimble, possibly this David Trimble is mentioned in the Augusta County records as follows:

March 1757 (B)

Henderson vs. Calvin.--James Calvin, James Trimble, William Trimble, David Trimble, all of New Castle, Province of Pennsylvania. Bond to Valentine Henderson of Belfast, County of Antrim. Dated 27th September, 1740. Henderson died during the progress of the suit. In deeds recorded in 1788 in Augusta County, VA, John Trimble and wife Margaret and David Trimble sold land on Middle River. This was apparently their place of residence. David moved to Kentucky in 1797.

8. Like his brother James, David was a surveyor and was appointed on May 18, 1773, as deputy surveyor of Augusta Co., VA. He was a large landowner in the Valley of Virginia, both at the Forks-of-James, east of Lexington, VA and on Middle River, this being his home plantation. Just after the Rev. War, when his sons migrated to Kentucky around the Montgomery County area, David made the move with them. At this time John, James and Moses were already deceased, also David's wife. This probably accounted for his decision to move from his home in VA to the Kentucky area. His will is recorded at the Bourbon County, Kentucky, Courthouse. It appears that David and James were the closer of the Five Trimble Brothers as their names appear together frequently on documents recorded in the Virginia valley. This close tie could have been due to them having the same profession of surveying.

9. 31 Oct. 1765 - received 300 acres in Augusta Co. at the fork of the James River.

16 March 1771 - additional 140 acres adjoining his own land.

1 Feb. 1781 - additional 110 acres adjoining his land.

 

10. The Will of David Trimble is recorded in Bourbon County, KY and is shown below:

Notes for FERGUS GRAHAM:

 

Two of William Alkire's brothers, John & George Alkire as well as Fergus Graham were at the Cane Ridge Protracted Meeting in 1801, held under the auspices of Barton Warren Stone. Later the three mentioned

were Christian, sometimes called "New Light" Preachers. George Alkire invited his good friend Stone up to OH to begin the church at the Deer Creek settlement. George & Fergus, neighbors, held an annual protracted meeting, and Fergus always donated a beef critter roasted on a spit, to help feed the multitudes. Certainly Fergus' descendants were active in the Christian Church, and as Humphries, in his Lives of Deceased Christian Ministers says, "Pity the poor Trinitarian who wandered into their camp!" (I believe that would include the Anglicans)! These men were part of the backbone of the restoration movement.
