Disputed Parentage

Beginning in 1595, it was claimed that Henry Spencer was the son of Thomas Despencer. This claim was demolished, together with a number of other false pedigrees, by Horace Round in his 1901 Studies in Peerage and Family History. Round describes the Spencer pedigree as “a typical case of the Heralds' College providing a family, when it has acquired wealth, with arms to which it is not entitled on the strength of a pedigree concocted for the purpose”.[1]

The Complete Peerage, citing Round, dismissed the false Spencer pedigree as "an elaborate imposture" which was "incapable of deceiving the most credulous."[2]

The November 1902 edition of The Ancestor had some fun with the Spencer family's fake pedigree, describing them as "that pushful house of shepherd kings" -- referring to the well-known origin of the family's wealth.[3]

Sounding a more gentle tone, the March 1996 edition of Soul Search noted sadly that the pedigree forgery "obscures the real achievement of the Spencers of Althorpe. Alone, perhaps among the English nobility, the Spencers owed their riches and their rise not to the favour of a king or to the spoils of monasteries, nor even to a fortune made in trade, but to successful farming."[4]


Ancestral Note

At this point with Henry, the "De" was omitted from the Spencer line. This statement may not be correct, as the connection between the DeSpencer line and the Spencer was disproven by John Horace Round in his book Peerage Studies and Allied Families. In order to show that I will present here some excerpts of his book and other sources.

Thomas, the eldest son and heir of Nicholas, was father (g) of HENRY SPENCER, of Badby in com. Northampton, Esq. as appears by a (h) receipt (i), dated 13 Henry VI, for subsidies then paid to the King.

The history of the SPENCERS' begins in this book on page 706 with Sir John Spencer of Snittenfield, later of Wormleighton and Hodell and Althorp. He died in 1522. The lineage in this volume descends down to Henry Spencer, Third Lord Spencer, and first Earl of Sunderland. He succeeded his father, Sir Robert Spencer, first Lord Spencer, who died at Wormleighton in 1627. Sir Henry succeeded his father in 1637 and he died in 1643 athe the Battle of Newbury.

In this disertation, Mr. Round proceeds to disprove the connection of the Le De Spencer line and the Spencer line. He mentions where: " The family of Spencer of Wormleighton and Althorpe recorded in its pedigree at the Hearlds Vistionation of the County of Northampton in 1564 (H.IV in Coll.Arms) beginning with Sir John Spencer of Hodnell, in the County of Warwick Kt who died in 1521. At that time no pretension was made to a descent from the Despencers or of any relationship to the Earls of Winchester and Gloucester, nor was there the least similitude in the arms. Clarencieux Lee in 1595 made a pedigree for the then Sir John Spencer of Wormleighton and Althorpe, in which he drew the descednt nearly in the manner in which Dugdale has given it; he professes to have complied it from divers records, registers, wills, and other good sufficient proofs which he had diligently and carefully perused, and in his character of Clarencieux King of Arms he confims and allows it officially. Whatever the proofs which he saw and examined, I confess that I cannot give implicit credit to his work".

On pps 325 and 326 we find: " One must repeat that Lee's deeds and persons may be genuine, but that he connected and combined them at his own sweet will (compare my article on "The Origin of the Thynnes" in Genealogist (N.S.) XI, 193. It is, for instance, quite possible that he found a HENRY SPENCER obtaining a lease of tithes at Badby in 20 Hen. VI. (1441-1442), and that his wife's name was Isabel; for, although it has been supposed that there is now no evidence for this Henry, I have found Henry Spencer of Badby", with Isabel (Lincoln) his wife, occuring in 1468.

(My notes: There again is the only mention of Henry and Isabel Spencer in his volume.

Source: The Spencers and Their Name, by B.F. Spencer, 1914, he begins the line with John Le Spencer of Southampton, 1273, Henry Le Spencer of Cambridge about the same time, Thomas and Agnes Spencer of Yorkshire in 1379, to John Spencer of Bedfordshire! There is much lacking in this lineage!

And so with this, we must wonder, where did Henry Spencer come from? How do we make the connection between him and John Spencer of Bedfordshire? Is this all speculation, or can it be proven? Is anyone pursuing this? I myself am trying via various Bulletin Board Systems and the Internet to make the connection, and hopefully in the near future will succeed in doing so. But I do believe we can put to "rest" the connection between the le Despencer line and our Spencer line, and concentrate on finding Henry's whereabouts and his ancestors.

The Spencer lineage I give is from "SPENCER-HUXLEY: From the files of Stephen M. Lawson" (http://kinnexions.com/smlawson/spencer.htm). "The following lineage is generally accurate. However, some differences are reported in other sources. A series begun January 1983 in le Despencer, Newsletter of the Spencer Family Association, by Flora Spencer Clark, includes the final 3 English generations as proved. This series continues with the American Spencers. Identification of Henry SPENCER and Isabella LINCOLN as parents of Sir John SPENCER is from Ancestors of American Presidents, by Gary Boyd Roberts (Santa Clarita, CA, 1995)."

Henry SPENCER (d. 1477/8) of Badby, Northants., married Isabella LINCOLN. Son William married Elizabeth EMPSON and became ancestor of Pres. F. D. ROOSEVELT, Sir Winston SPENCER-CHURCHILL, Lady Diana (SPENCER), Princess of Wales, and her sons Prince William and Prince Harry. Son Thomas married Margaret SMITH became ancestor of Pres. WASHINGTON and Pres. F. D. ROOSEVELT. Son John, as noted below, became ancestor of Pres. COOLIDGE and Pres. BUSH.

Please note the date for Henry Spencer who married Isabel Linclon has been proven now to be very close to 1418-1420 as new info from Gary Boyd Roberts, this old 1392 date is so inaccurate. Henry Spencer. b. abt. 1418 Eton Socun, Beds. d. 1476 , = Isabel Lincoln

Henry obtained a lease of tithes at Badby in 20 Hen. VI. (1441-1442), so this suggests he was from Bedfordshire,then removed to Badby. and had his children there, therefore likely son of Thomas Spencer- Gent. of the 1433 Visitation of Bedfordshire.

From whom proceeded four sons, John, Thomas, William and Nicholas; and died about (k) 16 Edward IV, his last will and testament bearing date 1476, wherein he appoints his sons, John and Thomas, executors, and Isabel his wife overseer.

Reason for confusion: His Uncle Thomas Spencer removed from Badby to Eton Socon or old name: Cum-Eton Soc (Eaton Socon) and for and for a brief time, the manor there was also called Eaton. hense the confusion, there were 2 Thomas Spencer's So anyone with the Margaret Wold name in ancesters for the 4 Spencer Brothers is in Error and proved here, please correct.
