My Rosamond kin were members of a Swiss Guild. Hans in John. There is a father and son named John de Rougemont.
“This James (or Jacob, for these names were once interchangeable) was the son of Hans Ulrich Rosemond, born 1623, a weaver; who was a son of Hans, a weaver, born 1581; who was a son of Fred Rosemond, born 1552, a weaver, member of town council and a local captain; who was the son of another Hans whose date of birth is not known, but he too, was a weaver and became a citizen of Basle in 1534. His father was Erhart de Rougemont who bought in 1495 ¡°the house called Rebleuten-Zunft in Basle in the Freistrasse”
“After John the Apostle the Holy Grail Lineage passed down a lineage of Masters all of who assumed the title of “John,” which was not a name but a title meaning “He of Gnostic Power and Wisdom.”
Mega-corporations are sucking trillions of dollars out of the pockets of the little people, and storing our national wealth in offshore banks where We the People can not get to it in form of Taxation. To make sure We never pass a law to stop these traitors, they back the evangelical lunacy invented by John Darby in Ireland around 1840 so as to form a voting block in our churches. This is a fake religion formed around the ranting of a fifteen year old girl with a fever that became the Rapture End Time. self-fulfilling prophecy is at work here, where our Democracy is being brought to its knees to prove these deluded ones have the right stuff. They do not!
It is my goal to establish a Guild that will take back our money via a Creative Information Guild, and recycle it – from the ground up here in America. I will paint a rainbow with our pot of gold at the end of it. Many authors and charlatans claim the Knights Templars were bankers who fled to Switzerland. They claim Jesus was imparting a secret Gnostic teaching to his disciples. This is not true. When you keep secrets up in your ivory tower, and put pawns around it to guard the lie, you serve only yourself.
From high atop their ivory lighthouse, Ian Sinclair and Mark Pinkham claim the Templars carry down a Johannite lineage. John is a name, and means Gift of God. The Rosamond family were members of the Swiss Guild, Rebleuten- Zunft. The coat of arms for this guild depicts a wolf holding a vine dresser’s knife. The patron saint of this guild is St. Urban who holds a bunch of grapes.
My Grandfather, Royal Rosamond, married Mary Magdalene Wieneke. The Wieneke coat of arms depicts a bunch of grapes. The Rosesmont/Rosamond coat of arms depicts a wolf. The coins struck by Bar Kokbha `the Messiah’ shows a bunch of grapes. Some of the Roesmonts moved to Rougemont Switzerland. The Rougemont bankers have their roots there. My sister, the artist, Rosamond, married into the Benton family who are kin to famous bankers. After my sister died in 1994 I fought against the selling of my families Artistic Legacy to outsiders led by Lawrence Chazen who was a partner in the Getty families PlumpJack winery. He was the No.1 Creditor in my sister’s Bankruptcy and Probate.
I have a Grand Cross in my Astrological Chart. I was born several minutes after the sunset 6:05 P.M. on October 8, 1946 in Oakland Calfornia. When darkness fell, an amazing star-shower became visible. My mother Rosemary told me she was too exhausted to go to the window and join the nurses in the maternity ward who were oohing and ahhing. She told me she had visions during labor and kept telling herself she must remember them. She could not.
When my Astrologer began her five hour (recorded) reading of my chart, she began with these words; “Jon, I have never seen a chart like yours, never knew it was possible. It begins where all charts in theory begin on the exact cusp of Pisces and Aries.. For this reason I had to move up the time of your birth ten minutes, or in theory you were not born. As it is now, you barely escaped becoming a veritable prisoner in this lifetime, that is, all the information you came here to share.”
“The Knights’ involvement in banking grew over time into a new basis for money, as Templars became increasingly involved in banking activities. One indication of their powerful political connections is that the Templars’ involvement in usury did not lead to more controversy within the Order and the church at large.”
“When the Knights Templars were formed in the Holy Land the ruling “John” was the Grand Master Theoclete. The Templars became part of this lineage when Theoclete eventually made Hughes de Payen, the first Templar Grand Master, the Grand Master of the Holy Grail Lineage. After that, the power and wisdom of the lineage was passed down among the Grand Master Templars. Even with the absorption of Templars into other Orders, there are still questions as to what became of all of the tens of thousands of Templars across Europe. There had been 15,000 “Templar Houses”, and an entire fleet of ships. Even in France where hundreds of Templars had been rounded up and arrested, this was only a small percentage of the estimated 3,000 Templars in the entire country. Also, the extensive archive of the Templars, with detailed records of all of their business holdings and financial transactions, was never found. By papal bull it was to have been transferred to the Hospitallers, whose library was destroyed in the 16th century by Turkish invaders. Some scholars believe that some of the Templars fled into the Swiss Alps, as there are records of Swiss villagers around that time suddenly becoming very skilled military tacticians. An attack was led by Leopold I of Austria, who was attempting to take control of the St. Gotthard Pass with a force of 5,000 knights. His force was ambushed and destroyed by a group of about 1,500 Swiss peasants. Up until that point, the Swiss really had no military experience, but after that battle, the Swiss became renowned as seasoned fighters. Some folk tales from the period describe how there were “armed white knights” who came to help them in their battles. The future research of the IOGT certainly involves uncovering the Gnostic rites and practices that the original Knights Templar were involved in. Such investigation could involve a study of the Middle Eastern Gnostic sects that were in existence during the time of the Templars, such as the Sufis and Johannites, and exactly what the Knights learned from them. Another area of research includes an in depth investigation of and the gathering of conclusive evidence regarding the existence of the Holy Grail or Johannite lineage that the Templars were initiated into in the Holy Land. This area of research couls ultimately prove that: ”
Give me a hundred million dollars and a thousand dedicated people, and I will guarantee to generate such a wave of democratic unrest among the masses–yes, even among the soldiers–of Stalin’s own empire, that all his problems for a long period of time to come will be internal. I can find the people. Sidney Hook, 1949 It was the goddess worship of the Sufis, expressed in the form of love poetry dedicated to ladies, and a deference towards women, which became known in Europe as the art of chivalry. As de Rougemont indicates, many of the troubadours were Cathars, a fractious group of Christians of Southern France, that resurrected the Gnostic tradition. Through them, the tradition transpired to the Templars, and to the Legends of the Grail.”

The Rougemonts The Premiere Shroud Family
by Jon Presco Copyright 2003
Bernard de Tramelay/Dramelay was a Grand Master of the Knight Templars who is said to have died just after he and forty Knight Templars breached the walls of Ascalon during the Crusades. Information on Bernard is very scarce, it suggested his greed got him and the forty Templars killed, as the first to conquer a city got the lion’s share of the spoils. There is a suggestion there was a falling out between the Templars and the Christian forces who did not follow Bernard into the breach. When the Muslim defenders saw this, they closed on Bernard who I suspect was trying to capture the Ark of the Covenant that Joseph Flavius said was in Ascalon. The Templars were very keen to own the Ark, and when they first arrived at the temple grounds they began to dig extensively, especially atop the Mount of Olives where they built a substantial fortress. Did they suspect what I have put forth, that the Ark was either the Oracle of Delphi, or kin to this object and the process which allowed great men and women to see their fate? I suspect Absalom was an Oracle, the angel Ariel/Uriel.
For two years now I have been looking at the name Fromond de Dramelay who married a “dame de Rougemont”. He is shown in many genealogies (including a Rougemont chart) to be the son of Amedee, the Archbishop of Besancon, which is located fifty miles or so from Rougemont in the Franche-Comte where it is said Bernard was born. His father was named Humbert. All the Humbert names I have found on the net belong to the Ferrette/Rougemont family. Several Rougemonts were the Archbishops of Besancon. The Templars were also in possession of the Shroud of Turin that was given to Amedee by Othen de la Roche (of the small rock). It has been concluded that Bernard de Tramelay is the related to Amedee.
The de la Roche family is kin to the Rougemont and Dramelay family. j. Jean de Montreaux (Montrose) married Marguerite de Rougemont. Jean is a Ferrette who built Montreux castle that is fifty miles from Rougemont. Their daughter Alix married Fromond of Saint-Loup where the Templars are said to have brought their treasure. The Marquis d’Auxelles came to live in the rebuilt castle of Rougemont. Chambrun d’Uxeloup de Rougemont bought Arginy castle and began to look for the lost Templar treasure. The name Uxeloup come from Saint-Loup and Auxelles a castle that was built by the Ferrette family who dwelt in Rougemont castle. Members of the ‘Arginy Renaissance’ are said to be descendants from Knight Templars, even a Grand Master in regards to Guillaume de Beajeau, but, I suspect this group knew who Bernard Tramelay was…..and what he captured at Ascalon?
Marguerite de Saint Loup d’Auxelles married Thibaut 4 of Rougemont. Richard d’Auxelles married Thibaut’s daughter, Helvuis, whose grandfather was Humbert. This Humbert appears to be the Archbishop of Besancon, a name that means “house of light”. Here is a quote about the Rougemonts and Counts of Champagne who commisioned some of the Grail legends; “By skillful policy, “always acquiring never alienating” the family formed matrimonial alliances with the great families, Montbeliard, Commercy, Chatteauvillian, Geroldseck, Chalon- Auxere, Montague, Ray, Rougemont, Joinville, and Grandson.”
Shround of Turin and Knights of Saint-George The Knights of Saint-George met at Rougemont Castle and had a room in a tower in Besancon. The Archbishop of Besancon resided over a ritual there that involved ceratin relics. Was the Shroud of Turnin one of them? “A room in the tower of Montmartin was granted to him by a treaty with the town of Besancon, as well as the exemption of the housing of people of war for the knights residing in Besancon. The knights of Saint-George were besides only noble city of Besancon has to profit from this inappreciable privilege.
“These portraits like that of the prince of COP, special guard of the brotherhood decorated the superb room with the Large Carmelite friars of Besancon, unfortunately destroyed at the time of the Revolution. The plank of the woodworks of the room was decorated series of the blasonnés ecus of the alive knights, with their confined inscriptions of their four districts, which one descended at the time of their death to be carried in ceremony with the church, then suspended with their row in the nave where one saw a great number of it which had decorated a long time the vault with Rougemont.” Archbishops of Besancon 1180-1190 : Thierry II de Montfaucon 1191-1193 : Etienne de Vienne 1993-1220 : Amédée de Tramelay 1221-1225 : Gérard de Rougemont
