Magna Carta Project

Magna Carta ancestry
Katherine (Marbury) Scott is a Gateway Ancestor documented by Douglas Richardson in a trail to the Bigods (Hugh and Roger), Magna Carta Surety Barons.
Douglas Richardson. Magna Carta Ancestry: A Study in Colonial and Medieval Families, 4 vols, ed. Kimball G. Everingham, 2nd edition (Salt Lake City: the author, 2011), volume I, pages 433-437 CHESELDINE.
Base Camp shows that trails from Katherine to surety barons Saher de Quincy, Robert de Vere, and the Clares ( Gilbert de Clare and Richard de Clare) were reviewed/approved - "badged" - for the Magna Carta Project in 2014. In 2015, a trail through Katherine's ancestor Maud de Lacy, daughter of surety baron John de Lacy, was badged.
In June 2019, D Theberge joined the Magna Carta Project as Gateway Guardian for this profile. (See details about the role of Gateway Guardians and Trail Tenders here.)
Magna Carta Project maintenance categories:
  • Needs Re-review: The trail for Katherine was developed for the project in 2014. A lot has changed since then and profiles should be reviewed against the current [[Space:|project checklist]] to bring them up to date. ~ Noland-165 17:14, 27 July 2019 (UTC)
  • Needs Source Check: Information from/citations to Richardson's works need to be verified and updated.

I've corrected the marriage date in the text. I also unchecked the box that hid her marriage to Richard (kept it from displaying on the profile).

just checked Royal Ancestry (Vol II, p 147) - same.

Anne baptized (at Alford, Lincolnshire) 20 July 1591 & married William Hutchinson, Gent. on 9 August 1612.

Katherine married 7 June 1632 Richards Scott (still no birth info for Richard).

Richardson's Magna Carta Ancestry (Vol 1, p 436) shows Katherine, daughter of Rev. Francis & Bridget (Dryden) Marbury as married "at Berkhampstead, Hertfordshire 7 June 1632 Richard Scott". Scott's birth/parents not mentioned. Richard died "Providence, Rhode Island in 1679/80. His widow, Katherine, died at Newport, Rhode Island 2 May 1687."

An entry on the same page for her sister Anne notes that Anne was baptized 20 July 1591. Perhaps a misreading of Richardson resulted in Katherine's marriage date being Anne's baptism date?

Then who is the Richard Scott that married in 1591 or is that just an error?

(Expletives entered here)

There are two Richard Scotts? One b. 1605 and one 1607, both in Berkhamstead. And from what I see here Anderson may have them conflated.

Katherine died 1687 age 70 (RI Vital Records) her birth should be changed to about 1617 not 1610.

????? This profile says they were married 1591 according to Richardson. A typo I hope. Can someone check Richardson. Anderson says marriage 7 June 1632
