one has happened in our family since I wrote last viz. the death of my
Brother Sir John Fenn in 1794 which is a great loss to us all, for his ex-
cellent understanding & true friendship for us so tender & so tried we
cannot hope or expect to find in another. My sister has been in very
great dejection of mind but her health is rather better than formerly,
and her spirits are not a little recovered. She is now at Malvern Wells,
in Worcestershire where she was so kind as to take my youngest Daughter
Susan for a complaint of slight swelling in the glands of her neck — which
the use of the waters has nearly removed.

I have now only my youngest son remaining at school, the fourth
and fifth are students at Trinity Coll. Cambridge, the sixth a Lieut,
in the Royal Artillery commanded by Marquiss Comwallis.

Naming Cambridge reminds me of telling you or rather Mr. Baylor
that we visited Mr. Bond last Summer at his new built house at Wheat-
ame in which he seems most comfortably settled and had a few months
ago the satisfaction of having the title of Father added to that of hus-
band. Mr. Frere answers for his little son. I hope it will live and be
very good

The old master at Caius Coll. Cambridge is lately dead, and Mr.
Fisher who Mr. Baylor remembers, elected in his room. His name is
changed to Belnard. I mentioned to you my eldest daughter's* mar-
riage to Sir John Orde once Governor of Dominica — then capt. in the


Navy, he has lately been promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral of the
White. Sir Robert Laurie is now a General & has lately sailed to Ger-
many to take command there & will I hope return safe with honour as
he did from a former campaign through a French sabre had nearly pre-
vented the first by a cut in the temple though regarded not.

Lady Lauriet lives still at Dover.

We have news of victory obtained by Admiral Hotham in the
Mediterranean, but as yet no particulars. We want some counterbal-
ance to the defeat of the Emigrants at Quiberon Bay.

Mr. Frere joins me in kind respects to Mr. Baylor yourself and
Family & Mr. Geo and Daniel Norton with my dear Cousin

Your very affectionate cousin
J. Frere.
Addressed to

Mrs Baylor.

*-Died in 1829 leaving issue, the present Baronet being her son
From Burke's Landed Gentry.

f-There are at New-Market several letters from Lady Laurie
who married Sir Robert Laurie of Maxwelton, head of an old and prom-
inent Scotch family.

Abstract From an Old Manuscript that Records the History of The

Townes Family of Virginia. In possession of Miss

Claudia K. Townes of Greenville, South Carolina.

There were six Townes brothers who were Englishmen. James,
John, Thomas, Henry, William and Samuel. Of these James, Samuel
and John came over to Virginia and settled in Henrico Co.

William, youngest son of James Townes, settled in Amelia Co. on
the Appomatox River. He died in June 1774, aged 63, in possession of
21 negroes and a fine tract of land on Roanoak. He had six sons. The
eldest William, Thomas, Henry, John, Joseph and Halcut. William
settled in Cumberland Co. and served sometime during the Revolution-
ary War. He married Obedience, daughter of Samuel Allen.

Thomas enlisted in the army in his 24th year in 1776, served two
years regularly and occasionally afterwards amounting in all to five
years. The first two years under Washington and six months imder
Gates. Was engaged in the seige of Gwynns Island against Dimmore
under Lewis. Was at the seige of Norfolk when it was burned, and with
Wayne at Stony Point. Was then first Lieutenent and wounded in this
battle, and also a small skirmish at Portsmouth. He was at the seige
of York and saw Comwallis give up his sword. Returned home and
settled in Charlotte Co. but moved to South Carolina In 1793.

John enteres the army at an early age. Went to the North, was
engaged in several battles. Returned South, was taken prisoner at
Charlestown exchanged and returned to Philadelphia. Married and be-
come clerk of the board of war.

Joseph married in Halifax and died in Mecklinburg.

Halcut settled first in Halifax, moved to Danville. He married a
Coleman at the age of 25. Was a lawyer of considerable eminence but
died at the early age of 35. Was twice married.

Henry married and reared a large family. He moved to Ken-
tucky and lived to an advanced age. Henry and Halcut were both at
the battle of Guilford.


The four sisters were Molly who married William Pride. Nancy,
married Charies Jones, Lucretia, married Frank Robinson and Elis-
abeth who married Blackman Ligon.

Samuel Allen Townes, son of William, married Rachel Stokes of
Fredericksbury, in 1799, and moved to Greenville, S. C.

Some Virginians Educated in Great Britain.

This list of natives of Virginia who attended schools or colleges in
England and Scotland prior to 1800 is certainly very incomplete; but
is as full as the sources accessible in Richmond would allow. Foster's
Alumni Oxonienses, of course, gives full information for Oxford, but when
the matriculation lists of the Cambridge Colleges, of the great schools
like Harrow and Winchester (Mr. Austen-Leigh has given much infor-
mation in regard to Eton), the London schools, the various grammar-
schools throughout England, and Scotch schools and universities (other
than the medical school at Edinburgh), and admissions to the various
Inns of Court, have been carefully examined by some properly equipped
person, there is no doubt that this list can be largely increased. In ad-
dition to these institutions many Virginia boys were certainly sent to
private schools in England, which were of note at the time, but whose
records must now be lost.

The list of names follows. The Virginia residence is given,
and at least one year, preferably the first year, of the students residence
in the school or college.

Sir John Zouch

In Volume XII, pages 87 and 88, July, 1904, you gave an abstract
of the Will, dated 30 August, 1636, and proved 4 December, 1639, of Sir
John Zouch, and in a note you made him to be the same Sir John who was
knighted at Belvoir Castle 23 April, 1603, and who in 1605 made the
agreement with Captain George Weymouth for the settlement of Virginia,
a project which was disconcerted by the grant of the Virginia Company's
Charter; and also the same (and so he was), who came to Virginia in 1634
and made a futile attempt to plant iron works at Falling Creek, below
Richmond, and was mixed up in the dissension between Governor Harvey
and his opponents in the Council. And in the same Volume, page 429,
you published a commtmication from me, in which with other matter, I
expressed a belief that the Sir John who visited Virginia in 1634 and
made the Will of 1636-9 was not the same, but the son of the Sir John
Zouch who came near, perhaps, to being the foimder of Virginia in 1605.

I have since found a confirmation of my belief in "The Berkeley
Manuscripts — Lives of the Berkeleys," by John Smyth, Steward of
Berkeley Hundred, England. Smyth, who was himself an arms bearing
gentleman, wrote his manuscript history, which is of the highest au-
thority, in and before 1624, although it was not published tmtil 1883, and
he was well acquainted with the persons and events of the period in which
he was writing. In Volume II, page 402, he gives an account of the mar-
riage of Mary, eldest daughter of his patron, Henry, Lord Berkeley, by
his 1st wife, Lady Katherine Howard (3rd daughter of the poet, Henry
Howard, Earl of Surrey,) on 14 February, 1584, to John Zouch, Esquire,
"after knight," son and heir apparent of Sir John Zouch of Codnor Castle,
Derbyshire, which Sir John — the father — "dyed shortly thereafter,"
and he states that this second Sir John Zouch, who married Lady Mary
Berkeley, died in the 8th year of King James the First (1611), leaving
a son John, "now knight, of Codnor Castle, "who married Isabel Lowe,
of Denby, Derbyshire, "by whom hee hath issue John, Katharine, Isable
and Elizabeth, anno 1624." He gives further details, but the above is

There were three successive Sir John Zouches of Codnor,, the first
of whom married Elizabeth, or Eleanor, Whalley — of the family to which
the regicide afterwards belonged — and who died in 1586 (Will) ; the second
married Lady Mary Berkeley, was knighted at Belvoir Castle in 1603,
was the projector of the Virginia colony in 1605, and died in 1611; and the
third marfied Isabel Lowe in 1607, was a member of the Virginia Com-
pany as "Mr. John Zouch" and "John Zouch, Esquire," in 1621-1623, and,
being knighted thereafter, visited Virginia in 1634 as Sir John Zouch,
attempted to plant iron works and was otherwise concerned with the
Colony's affairs, and died in 1639, leaving the Will which was abstracted
for the Magazine.


Everything relating to the settlement of Virginia has an interest,
and it is interesting to note that the first Sir John Zouch was a com-
panion in arms of Sir Walter Raleigh in Ireland in 1581-2 (Lives of Sir
Walter Raleigh, Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters, .where the name
appears as "Siuitsi", &c.). and that Raleigh was a prisoner in the Tower
in 1605, but receiving visitors and with his mind constantly turned to the
American Continent; and so it may well be that the settlement project
of Sir John Zouch, the son of his old companion, was suggested by this
ardent colonizer, or had his counsel.

Codnor Castle is now a ruin, and a much pillaged one for stone,
but what is left of it is still shown to visitors, as it was to another Amer-
ican descendent of the Sir John Zouches a few years ago.
