Inmans of Nidderdale - 5th Generation


http://inman.surnameweb.org/documents/nidderdale3.htm
"From Capt. Anthony Beckwith and Grace (Inman), his wife, sprang a race of soldiers, commencing with Lieut.-Col. Beckwith, their grandson, down to their military descendants of the 19th c.; see the pedigree in Foster. It seems that the latter was unaware of their Nidderdale descent, for a commencement is made with the said Lieut.-Colonel; the genealogy of Beckwith, late of Bewerley, compiled by Thos. Beckwith, F.A.S., in the 18th c., clearly shews that Lieut.-Col. Beckwith was the son of John Beckwith, of the par. of Ripon and of Mary (Fairfax), his wife; the said father, of Bewerley, died in a. 1696, and his Will, of the same date, exhibits, ni fallor, the arms of Beckwith. The question arises as to his right to bear these arms John Beckwith, of Bewerley, was the son of Captain Anthony, who was the son of John Beckwith of Kirkby Malzeard. The latter's Will dates a. 1656, and, in it, he names his 'loving friends and coozens, Mr. Matthew Beckwith and Mr. William Beckwith'; these were the sons of Roger Beckwith, and a relationship to the Aldbrough family is apparent. but how the latter was connected with that of Beckwith of Clint I do not know.

Castles with Ghosts

"Featherstone Castle, Northumberland
The castle is associated with a ghostly bridal party. Baron Featherstonehaugh had arranged for his daughter to marry a relative of his choice, even though the daughter was in love with someone else. The wedding party left for the "traditional hunt" after the wedding, leaving the baron behind to make arrangements for the banquet. When the party failed to return by midnight, the baron began to fear the worst. Sitting alone at the table, he heard horses crossing the drawbridge. The door opened and the party entered. But, they made no sound and passed through furniture.
The wedding party had been ambushed and killed. On the anniversary of the wedding, the party can still be seen heading towards the castle. "

Where's My Damn Castle?William Beckwith at Jamestown
Romano-British farmstead
Roman West Yorkshire - Before the Romans

The Brigantes
Before the arrival of the Romans, West Yorkshire and much of the Pennine uplands were occupied by a loose association of tribes known as the Brigantes. The name seems to mean ‘the high one’, which is a suitable epithet for a group of people living in the more mountainous regions of Britain. In East Yorkshire, their neighbours were another tribe called the Parisii, who appear to have had connections with the Seine valley. This accounts for the similarity of their name to that of the capital of modern France.

Historians know little about the Brigantes before the arrival of the Romans. Presumably their ruler at the time was one of those who surrendered to Claudius at Colchester in AD 43, but they are not mentioned by name. By the early 50s AD they were being ruled by Queen Cartimandua. She lost her control of the tribe in AD 69, following an uprising led by her ex-husband Venutius. The Romans put down the rebellion and then went on to conquer the rest of northern Britain.

It seems probable that the tribal centre of the Brigantes was at Stanwick in North Yorkshire, but when the Romans set up an administrative centre to run their newly conquered province they chose Aldborough, also in North Yorkshire. The town is situated not far from the principal Roman road to the north, the line of which is still followed in many places by the modern A1, but its location may have been chosen for development because it was on or near one of the principal tribal centres.

Heaven, earth and men, for one thing do contend,
Each one doth Fowler challenge as his own;

To us the trophies of his wit he gave.

From Land Records of Allegany County, Maryland, Book D., page 437, 25 October 1805: "Samuel Osman of Allegany County, having lost his original deed to a tract of land in Allegany County known as "Linns Purchase," asks a commission consisting of Orvil McCracken, William Sherecliff, James Tidball, Jennings Beckwith, and John Devilbliss of Allegany County to cause a resurvey on said land with sworn wittness to testify as to boundary lines. The witnesses were: John Weatherington of Hampshire County, Va. (W. Va.), who swore that as a hired man to William Lynn, former owner of "Linn's Purchase," he could point out a boundary. Ignatius Bevins of Allegany County, Maryland, swore that about 18 years ago he was at the house of Charles Hettrick with Thomas Darnel and at that time was shown a boundary. Thomas Flora of Hampshire County, Va. (W.Va.), aged about 69 years, swore that about 34 years ago one See (Lee?) employed him and one John McDonald to carry the chain for a survey and that he could point out a boundary. Advertisements were placed on the door of the Allegany Court House and at Joseph Clarkes, Basil Bevins and Samuel Osmans announcing the meeting for marking the boundary of "Linn's Purchase."

was called "Methodist Episcopal, South" on the old deed to the property.
The church is located approximately 6 miles east of Graham off NC 54 on
Brucewood Road, at the intersection of Brucewood Road and Phillips
Chapel Road. Tradition asserts that graves were on the property prior to

In 1657, George Beckwith, Gent., became involved in administration of the estate and married the young heiress. Mr. Beckwith rebuilt the small house into a grand English manor which is said to have survived for over 200 years.

George Beckwith is thought to be of the Beckwith family originating in Yorkshire, England. He emigrated to Maryland in 1648 as an apprentice to Thomas Hatton, Secretary of State for Maryland. He was a Protestant. He served his apprenticeship and then went back to England for a short time. By 1657 he returned to Maryland, bringing with him several transportees. He was married by October 3, 1657 to Frances Hervey, orphan and heiress of Nicholas Hervey and thereby gained rights to St. Joseph manor.

George Beckwith maintained an inn and a ferry at St. Joseph's. He served in some minor public capacities, such as coroner and overseer of the public roads.

Beckwith died at London, England, before his wife, Frances (Hervey) Beckwith, who died April 19, 1676. The estate was administered in Maryland by John Halls and later by Cuthbert Fenwick, Esq. and still later by Thomas Banks. The plantation was considered to be among the wealthiest in America at the time of the appraisal.
