English pedigrees

The Keyte family of Gloucestershire, Warwickshire and surrounds. The Keytes of Ebrington were among the nobility, but I'm descended from a related line, which ended up in Ilmington, Warwickshire. My gt gt gt grandmother Mary Keyte (1772 - 1852) married Edward Gibbs. This descendancy chart shows the earliest Keytes I have found.

This second Keyte family descendancy chart shows my direct line from Jonathan Keyte through to Mary Keyte as well as their relatives.

The descendants of Edward Gibbs (b.c. 1730 - 1770) and Alice Dipple (my 4 x gt grandparents) are shown on this chart, showing the relationship to the Davenport, Rice and Holtom families.

Descendants (5 generations) from John Cadd (1720 - 1800) and Catherine Mason (1718 - 1799) are shown. This 8 page descendancy chart shows many major relationships. My ancestors are shown on page 3, with the relationship to the Walkers and Sievers. The earlier generations have been verified from the Hillesden, Bucks parish register. This picked up a common mistake that included one Sarah Eagdon or Eaydon (really Caydon if you look at it) from the IGI. On some charts, she is shown as mother of Martha Cadd who married William Walker. This is not the case, and Martha Cadd's brother married Sarah Caydon. I have carefully verified this from the relevant parish registers.

There's also a 5 generation descendant chart for Giles Speakman (b. c. 1721), the earliest of that surname to be found in the Hollinfare Chapel parish register, and showing my gt grandfather William Linney in the final generation. For more on the Linneys and Saxons, see the separate menu item. Here's an extra pedigree chart for my gt grandmother Sarah Jane Saxon showing some newer additions, and her ancestor Thomas Potter with even newer additions.

Joseph Spencer (1790 - 1855) was a "chymist and druggist" in 38 Lamb's Conduit Street, London. He married a Scots lady called Anne Weir (c.1799 - 1864), daughter of John Weir (c.1755 - 1833), a coal merchant from Buckie in Banffshire who moved to London. This Weir family were associated with the textile mill in Gollachie. John's first wife was probably Margaret Morison, who was likely the mother of Anne Weir. Later he married Sarah Hall. Joseph and Anne's daughter Anne Elizabeth Spencer (1828-1891) married Henry Lambert, whose origins are on the Irish pedigrees page. You can see this side of the family on the George Lambert pedigree.

Joseph Spencer's parents were William George Spencer (b. 1754) and Elizabeth Mary Anderton (b. 1759) who married in London in 1779. William's parents were William Spencer and Christian Buffin. Christian's parents were William Buffin and Christian Luelling.

Elizabeth's were John and Elizabeth Anderton, and John Anderton's parents were another John Anderton, a watchmaker, and his wife Susan, though it's possible Susan might have been a second marriage and the children are from an unknown first wife. Both the Spencers and Andertons were Catholics. In the Catholica Miscellanea Vol. 11, there is reference to John Anderton sheltering the priest Father "Pacificus" Baker.
