Magna Carta Project Notes on Immigrants

The goal of the Magna Carta Project is to develop and approve within WikiTree a trail for each Richardson-documented Gateway Ancestor to a Magna Carta Surety Baron. A subproject created in 2015 to help sort through the chaos that then existed for pre-1500 profiles in WikiTree, Questionable Gateway Ancestors (for immigrants not documented by Richardson), has been discontinued in light of improved controls for both pre-1700 and pre-1500 profiles and the creation of an Affiliate-level for project membership.

The table on this page lists Richardson-documented Gateway Ancestors. See also
  • the list of Gateway Ancestors here
  • the tables at Base Camp for Gateways in a trail identified by the Magna Carta Project
  • this table, that lists Gateways with a guardian (primary point of contact for that Gateway Ancestor).
Our Gateway Ancestors are the American colonists with Magna Carta ancestry whose well-documented ancestral lines are treated in Royal Ancestry: a Study of Colonial & Medieval Families by Douglas Richardson (2013), Volumes I-V, and in Magna Carta Ancestry: a Study of Colonial & Medieval Families], also by Douglas Richardson (2011), Volumes I-IV. [1]
Of the twenty-five barons who signed a vow to enforce Magna Carta in 1215, only seventeen have known descendants past the fourth generation.

Notes on Gateways

This section is for profiles included by the Magna Carta Project under Category:Gateway Ancestors that are not among the 240 listed by Richardson in the front matter of Magna Carta Ancestry, as well as those included in that list who did not immigrate.

This section is a work in progress. Contact: Liz Shifflett

Documented by Richardson

Two main types of "Richardson-documented, but not listed" profiles might be categorized as Gateway Ancestors by the Magna Carta Project:
  1. those children of Gateways whom Richardson includes in either Magna Carta Ancestry or Royal Ancestry - they are not listed below, and they are not actively sought out by the project for inclusion in the category, nor part of a trail review, but these profiles can be "badged" with the same Gateway project box as their parents if the profile is reviewed and approved by the project (review would need to be requested - either at the time the trail is posted as ready for review or after the fact).
  2. profiles of people who fit the project's definition of a Gateway Ancestor (descendant of a Surety Baron who immigrated to America before 1700) and who are documented by Richardson in either Magna Carta Ancestry or Royal Ancestry.
  • Lightfoot brothers:
    • Philip Lightfoot (Lightfoot-255), born c1646 and immigrated before 1671. See [[[Lightfoot-255#Magna_Carta_Project|this section]]] of his profile for details.
    • John Lightfoot (Lightfoot-92), born c1627 and immigrated before 1700. See [[[Lightfoot-92#Magna_Carta_Project|this section]]] of his profile for details.
  • I'm sure they're others. I need to go through the profiles in Category:Gateway Ancestors (on my to-do list for September/October). ~ Noland-165, 16 July 2018

Non-immigrant Gateways

Richardson includes in his list of 240 Gateways some who never immigrated. They are noted as a "non-immigrant" on this project page:
  • John Stratton, Gent. (Stratton-15), is the "non-immigrant husband of Anne Derehaugh" - his widow Anne immigrated, as did his son, also "John Stratton, Gent." (Stratton-2574, part of the PGM Project, citing Anderson).

Not Documented by Richardson

  • Robert Rose (see his profile for details). Note that this was an exception to the project's definition of a Gateway Ancestor (immigrated by 1700).

  1. Both Royal Ancestry (RA) and Magna Carta Ancestry (MCA) are available from [http:www.royalancestry.net his website], Amazon (RA, MCA), and elsewhere.

Questionable Gateway Ancestors

The following research notes were moved from Category:Questionable Gateway Ancestors, as that subproject has been discontinued. ~ Noland-165 14:57, 24 June 2018 (UTC)


RESEARCH NOTES entered Feb. 2, 2018 by John Schmeeckle

Henry Acton-11 at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Acton-11

He seems to be the proper social status for aristocratic ancestry, but a quick internet search didn't come up with any good secondary sources (let alone a baptism record) for his parentage. The marriage of his alleged maternal grandparents is mentioned in the Corbet genealogy, p. 203, athttps://archive.org/stream/familyofcorbetit02corb#page/n69/mode/2up

Michael Bacon-563 at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bacon-563

A quick look through his family tree doesn't show any obvious weak links, and he seems to be from the proper social class to be a prospective gateway ancestor. The alleged lineage goes straight up the Bacon line for several generations.
This lineage also shows up in the ancestry of John Lakin-12 (his mother was a Bacon) at https://www.wikitree.com/genealogy/Lakin-Family-Tree-12

James Bane at [1]

Conceivable but totally unsourced; I left "intent to detach" messages on both his and his father's profiles. Update Mar. 17: sent message to profile manager -- is there any evidence for this?

Elizabeth (Best) Shaw at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Best-10

There seems to be some legitimate ancestry on her mother's side. Her father's side seems to be idle speculation going up a few generations.

Ursula (Bish/Bysshe) Thompson at http://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/bish/376/

There is a rather recent genealogy of the Bysshe family, extending back to medieval times, per http://www.genealogy.com/forum/surnames/topics/bish/376/
Maybe there is a valid Magna Carta ancestry back there somewhere.

Anne (Bluet) Jones at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bluet-16

Definitely the right social class to have many Magna Carta lineages. However, there is a question whether the correct Anne Bluet has been identified as the wife of Cadwallader Jones. See this SGM thread: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/soc.genealogy.medieval/9qrMRU5tVZ8

Robert Thomas Bolling at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Bolling-34

I marked the parents of his father John Bolling "uncertain," per info on the profile.
His mother's parents appear to be a fabrication, but didn't look too closely.

Gov. Robert Brooke at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Brooke-97

His Magna Carta connection depends on the ancestry of his mother's ancestor Joan Elmedon. There is a G2G question about that here: https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/219366/is-joan-de-elmeden-a-descendant-of-a-magna-charta-baron-
Per a message from Joe Cochoit on that thread, Robert Brooke's descent from Joan Elmedon seems to have been broken.

Nicholas Brown at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Brown-45093

Update Mar. 17: There is a source showing that his mother Jane was indeed the daughter of a Thomas Lide/Leids of Inkberrow, co. Worcester. More research needed.

John Butler at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Butler-1412.

I left an intent-to-detach message on the profile of his maternal grandfather Richard Baker at

https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Baker-3575

I also left a "should his parents be detached?" message on the profile of his father Nicholas Butler at https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Butler-1870

Later Notes

Category removed from Webb-113, whose existence is questioned in [this G2G post]. Discussion appears to support his existence, but not with support that he was a surety baron's descendant. ~ Noland-165 13:14, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
