isaacspenceI just found another line to Princess Diana via the aunt of Ann Hart Hull, Anna/Nancy McCurdy, who married Nathan Strong. The Sarah who is buried alongside Jeannette Hart, may be her sister, Sarah, who was digraced when she divorced Samuel F. Jarvis. This would make the plot the resting place of a divorced woman, a woman who had an abortion, a woman who converted to Catholicism. These naughty girls, who sailed the seven sea with Captain Isaac Hull of the Enterprise, defied convention. They were surrounded by men who were Deacons of the Church, and came over to Plymouth. Of course any ligitimate, or illigitimate children of Hull would be esponged from gnenealogies, because he gave Ann and Jeannette, shelter from the storm.

Can one conclude that Diana Spencer got her rebeillious nature from the American Strong/Hart line? Did Queen Eizabeth look to the American grandparents of William and Harry as the source of ‘The Problem’?

Deacon Stephen Hart1,2
M, b. circa 1605, d. March 1682
•Anecdote*: He emigrated from England to Massachusetts Bay about 1632, locating for a while at Newtown (Cambridge) MA. 14 May 1634 he was admitted a freeman in Cambridge. He married, but was widowered, then married again. With Mr. Hooker’s company he moved in 1635 to Hartford, and his house lot was on the west side of what was later Front St, near where Morgan St crossed it. There is a tradition that the town is named for a ford he discovered and used to cross the Connecticut River, changing from Hart’s Ford to Hartford. Another tradition has it that on a hunting trip on Talcott Mountain, he and others discovered the Farmington River Valley, then occupied by the Tunxis. Probably as soon as 1640 a bargain was made with the Indians, and the whites settled among them with their cattle. They continued a connection with the Hartford settlement, attending worship there, and possibly wintering there until about 1645, when the town was incorporated as Farmington. About that time Roger Newton, a theology student with Rev Thomas Hooker, began to preach for them, and in 1652 was ordained their pastor. Stephen was one of the seven pillars of the church, and was chosen as the first deacon (the six others were Rev Roger Newton, John Cole (Cowles), John Bronson, Robert Porter, Thomas Judd, and Thomas Thompson). He and his wife were constituent members of the church in Farmington (organized Nov 1652), with Rev. Roger Newton pastor. Stephen had been deacon of Rev. Thomas Hooker’s church at Cambridge MA and then Hartford CT. He was one of 54 settlers at Cambridge MA, was a proprietor at Hartford in 1639, and one of 84 proprietors of Farmington in 1672. In 1647 he was a deputy of the General Court of CT at their May session. In 1653 he was made a Commissioner by the General Court for the town of Farmington, to aid the constable in impressing men into the army then being raised. He took the lead in settling Farmington, buying a large tract on the border of the present town of Avon, known since as Hart’s Farm. He was one of the first representatives in 1647 and with once exception, continued for 15 sessions until 1655, and once in 1660. His house lot was 405 times larger than any others, and was on the west side of Main St, in the village, opposite the meeting house. It had 15 acres, extending from Mill Lane to the stone store south. The lot was granted to him as an inducement to erect and continue a mill onthe premises. The mill was originally erected by the Bronsoms, to whom was granted a tract of 80 acres on the Pequabuk River, later know as the “Eighty Acre”. The south part of the Hart hosue lot went to his son John, adn the north to his son Thomas.2

Rev. Nathan Strong D.D. was born on 5 October 1748.1 He was the son of Rev. Nathan Strong and Esther Meacham.1 Rev. Nathan Strong D.D. married Anne Smith, daughter of Dr. Solomon Smith and Ann Talcott, on 20 November 1777.1 Rev. Nathan Strong D.D. married Anna McCurdy.1 Rev. Nathan Strong D.D. died on 25 December 1816 at age 68.1

Nathan graduated at Yale in 1769, ordained pastor of the First church in Hartford, Ct., January 5, 1774, chaplain in the army of the Revolution. He was a tutor at Yale (1772-3). He was settled on a salary of but £130, which was so poorly paid (as poor salaries usually are), that in a few years his people were in debt to him to the amount of £600. He invested a portion of the estate left him by his father in 1795, in a mercantile establishment which came to a disastrous end, and thus suffered much in a pecuniary way for many years. He was an earnest revival preacher, and was several times blessed with large ingatherings into his church. He published several sermons separately from time to time and two volumes of sermons (the first in 1798, and the second in 1800), designed to give aid and direction in revival efforts. He projected and sustained “The Connecticut Evangelical Magazine” continued through 15 years, a work highly prized. He was the chief founder also of “The Conn. Mss. society,” and was its principal manager for several years (1798-1806). In 1796, he published a theological work entitled “The Doctrine of Eternal Misery consistent with the Infinite Benevolence of God.”

After the death of his second wife he remained for the rest of his live (27 years) a widower. He was a man of very original powers of mind, great self-command, unbounded industry, wide erudition and retentive memory, a man of the first class in all respects. While a man of such superior intellect he was also full of fervor both in his pulpit and in his pastoral work. His sermons were short, but clear and pithy, and he had great facility in extemporizing. He was tall and straight, a man of dark complexion with an impressive eye and striking features, and was full of humor and all but uncontrollable wit at times. Work was but pastime to him. He died in the 43rd year of his ministry.2

Frances Ellen Work (October 27, 1857 – January 26, 1947) was an American heiress and socialite. She was a great-grandmother of Diana, Princess of Wales, and her great-great-grandchildren include the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry, and the American actor Oliver Platt.

[edit] BiographyBorn in New York City, she was a daughter of Franklin H. Work (1819–1911), a well-known stockbroker and protégé of Cornelius Vanderbilt, and his wife, Ellen Wood (1831–1877).[1]

On September 22, 1880, at Christ Church, New York City, Frances Work married the Hon. James Boothby Burke Roche, who would later become the 3rd Baron Fermoy. They had four children: two daughters Cynthia Roche and Eileen, and twin sons Francis and Edmund. Edmund later became the 4th Baron Fermoy, and was the maternal grandfather of Diana, Princess of Wales. Frances divorced Roche for desertion in 1891, before he had succeeded to the barony. Her lawyer was Thomas F. Bayard, former United States Secretary of State.[2]

Frances Ellen Work was born in 1857. She was the daughter of Frank M. Work and Ellen Wood.2 She married James Boothby Burke Roche, 3rd Baron Fermoy, son of Edmund Burke Roche, 1st Baron Fermoy and Elizabeth Caroline Boothby, on 22 September 1880.1 She and James Boothby Burke Roche, 3rd Baron Fermoy were divorced in 1891.1 She died circa January 1947 at New York, U.S.A..1
Her married name became Roche. As a result of her marriage, Frances Ellen Work was styled as Baroness Fermoy on 1 September 1920.

On August 4, 1905, the Hon. Mrs. Burke Roche married Aurel de Batonyi, a Hungarian-born riding instructor and society horseman. When he had immigrated to the United States on the Majestic in 1891, Batonyi claimed he was a count.[3] It was also suggested that his real name was Arthur Cohn.[4] Frances sued de Batonyi for divorce two years after their marriage, allegedly because her father threatened to disinherit her if she continued to live with her husband.[4]

She was a prominent figure in the New York City and Newport, Rhode Island, social sets, and was friends with Mrs Reginald Vanderbilt. Her sister, Lucy Bond Work married Peter Cooper Hewitt, a son of New York City Mayor Abram Stevens Hewitt.

She died in the city of her birth at the age of 89.[1]

James Boothby Burke Roche, 3rd Baron Fermoy (28 July 1852 – 30 October 1920) was an Irish peer and a Member of Parliament (MP) in the United Kingdom House of Commons. He was the great-grandfather of Diana, Princess of Wales.

[edit] BiographyHe was born at Twyford Abbey, Middlesex in 1852, the son of Edmond Burke Roche, and his wife Eliza Caroline née Boothby.[1] He was educated at Trinity College, Cambridge.[2]

He visited the United States where he met and married the heiress Frances Ellen Work on 22 September 1880 at Christ Church, New York City. The marriage was not a success and they separated in December 1886. She was granted a divorce on the grounds of desertion on 3 March 1891 at Wilmington, Delaware.[3]

They had four children, twin sons and two daughters:

Eileen (b. and d. 1882).
Cynthia (10 April 1884 − 8 December 1966), who married firstly Arthur Scott Burden (d. June 1921) in 1906 and secondly Guy Fairfax Cary (d. 1950) in 1922. She is the matrilineal great-grandmother of American actor Oliver Platt.
Edmund Maurice Burke (15 May 1885 – 8 July 1955), who was the grandfather of Diana, Princess of Wales.
Francis George Burke (15 May 1885 – 30 October 1958), who died unmarried.[4]
In 1896 he stood as an Anti-Parnellite Nationalist candidate in the Kerry East by-election for a seat in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. The Nationalists had split into two factions after the party leader, Charles Stewart Parnell was named as co-respondent in a divorce. Roche was supported initially by both the Parnellites and the Anti-Parnellites, until it was revealed that he was himself divorced. During the campaign, Roche denied publicly that he knew of the divorce or that he had deserted his wife and children.[5] Although he went on to win the seat, the opposing Unionist candidate gained the highest vote ever recorded for a Unionist candidate in Kerry East.[6] He served one term and did not stand in the following general election in 1900.

On 1 September 1920 he succeeded his brother as Baron Fermoy. Just two months later he died at Artillery Mansions, Westminster, London. He was buried at St Marylebone Cemetery, Finchley on 3 November 1920.[7

Elder John Strong1,2,3,4,5

Elder John Strong was born circa 1605 at Chard, Somerset, England. He married Marjorie Dean. Elder John Strong married Abigail Ford, daughter of Thomas Ford and Elizabeth Charde, circa 1636. Elder John Strong died on 14 April 1699 at Northampton, MA.

John Strong was born in Taunton, England, in 1605, whence he removed to London and afterwards to Plymouth. Having strong Puritan sympathies he sailed from Plymouth for the new world, March 20, 1630, in company with 140 persons, and among them Rev. Messrs. John Warham and John Maverick and Messrs. John Mason and Roger Clapp, in the ship Mary and John (Capt. Squeb) and arrived at Nantasket, Mass. (Hull), about twelve miles southeast from Boston, after a passage of more than seventy days in length, on Sunday, May 30, 1630.

The original destination of the vessel was Charles River; but an unfortunate misunderstanding which arose between the captain and the passengers, resulted in their being put summarily ashore by him at Nantasket. After searching for a few days, for a good place in which to settle and make homes for themselves, they decided upon the spot, which they called Dorchester, in memory of the endeared home in England which many of them had left, and especially of its revered pastor, Rev. John White, “the great patron of New England emigration,” who had especially encouraged them to come hither. 3

Though John has been said to have come on the 1630 voyage of the Mary and John, there is no proof of it, all passenger lists for that voyage being hypothetical.

Robert Charles Anderson in NEHGR, April 1993, addressed the many different lists of passengers on the Mary and John. He went about objectively establishing specific criteria for determining the likelihood that a specific individual was on the ship. By the criteria he established, which seem reasonable, Mr. Anderson concluded that Elder John Strong is not likely to have come on the Mary and John in 1630. Those that Mr. Anderson concluded had a solid basis for being considered passengers were: Roger Clap, George Ludlow, Roger Ludlow, John Maverick, Richard Southcott, Thomas Southcott, and John Warham. Additional passengers, based on other criteria were: Aaron Cooke, George Dyer, Thomas Ford, William Gaylord, John Holman, Thomas Lombard, Richard Louge, William Phelps, William Rockwell, Henry Smith, Thomas Stoughton, Stephen Terry, Nicholas Upsall, and Henry Wolcott. Another group of families, with less reliable connection to the Mary and John were John Benham, Bygod Eggleston, Christopher Gibson, Matthew Grant, John Greenway, John Hoskins, William Hulbird, Davy Johnson, George Phillips, John Phillips, John Pierce, and Roger Williams. Mr. Anderson assigns five other families that do not meet his criteria, but may, for other reasons, have been on the Mary and John: John Drake, John Gallop, Johathan Gillet, Nathan Gillet, and Henry Way. Mr. Anderson does not mention Elder John Strong anywhere in his discussion. However, he does leave room for three or four families that would be unaccounted for if the total number of passengers was 140. The information here, whether it describes John’s voyage specifically or not, does describe the similar circumstances which brought him to Dorchester.

In 1635, after having assisted in founding and developing the town of Dorchester, John Strong removed to Hingham, Mass., and on March 9, 1636, took the freeman’s oath at Boston. His stay at Hingham was short, as on Dec 4, 1638, he is found to have been an inhabitant and proprietor of Taunton, Mass., and to have been made in that year a freeman of Plymouth Colony. He remained at Taunton, as late at any rate as 1645, as he was a deputy thence to the General court in Plymouth, in 1641, 1643, and 1644. From Taunton he removed to Windsor, CT, where he was appointed with four others, Capt. John Mason, Roger Ludlow, Israel Stoughton, and Henry Wolcott, all very leading men in the infant colony, “to superintend and bring forward the settlement of that place,” which had been settled a few years before (1636) by a portion of the same colony that with him had founded Dorchester. Windsor was in fact called at first, and for several years (1636-1650), Dorchester. 3

In 1659 he removed from Windsor to Northampton, Mass., of which he was one of the first and most active founders, as he had been previously of Dorchester, Hingham, Taunton, and Windsor. In Northampton he lived for forty years, and was a leading man in the affairs of the town and of the church. He was a tanner and very prosperous in his business. His tannery was located on what is now the southwest corner of Market and Main streets near the rail road depot. He owned at different times, as appears by records in the county clerk’s office, some two hundred acres of land in and around Northampton. 3

Thomas was a trooper in 1658, at Windsor, under Major Mason (recorded March 11, 1657-8). He removed to Northampton with his father in 1659. When Thomas died, his second wife Rachel married Nathan Bradley and took the younger Strong children into southern Connecticut.

Of his 15 children, nine of whom were under 15 years of age, all but one were living at his death, after which one more also was born. He died intestate. His estate was inventoried at £379 14s. The estate of his son Hewett was £28, and divided equally between his three brothers and sister, children of mary Hewett. John, brother of hewett d. insolvent. Thomas Strong was a farmer.

By the will of thomas Strong his eldest son Thomas had “half the house and homestead forever; hoping he will come and live there and so be a help to his mother-in-law.” The mother had ‘the whole of the rest of the estate for five years to bring up the children; then the estate to be divided according to law, Thomas to have a double portion — he to pay if half of the whole is too much.”

(Rev. Ephraim Hewett had been a minister in Wraxall, Warwickshire, Eng., and being proceeded against by Archbishop Laud, in 1638, for neglecting ceremonies, came to this country in 1639. “he was,” says Allen, “a man of superior talents and eminent usefulness.” He was settled in 1639 as colleague with Rev. John Warham in Windsor. He died Sept. 4, 1644. His wife’s name was Isabel.

Deacon William Holton was one of the first settlers of Hartford, Ct., and one of the eight original petitioners for liberty to plant and settle at Nonotuck (Northampton), whither he went in 1653. When the first board of magistrates was appointed in 1665 by the General court, it consisted of William Holton, Thomas Bascom and Edward Elmore. he was the first deacon of the church of Northampton (ordained June 13, 1663), and a representative to the General court (1667-69). He died Aug. 12, 1691, at age about 80. His widow mary died Nov 16, 1691. His daughter Sarah married Nov 18, 1656, Capt. John King of Northampton, whose grand-daughter, Experience King (daughter of Lt. John King, Jr., of Northampton, and Mehitable Pomeroy) married Col. Timothy Dwight of Northampton, grandfather of President Timothy Dwight of Yale College. His second daughter Mary married November 18, 1656, David Burt, whose daughter, Mary Burt, married Dr. Thomas Hastings of Hadley , Mass., the ancestor of Thomas Hastings, Esq., Musical Doctor and Composer in New York. His remaining daughter Ruth married Feb 5, 1663, Joseph Baker and afterwards for her 2nd husband Thomas Lyman (son of Richard Lyman the settler). They were the parents of Noah Lyman father of the celebrated Gen. Phinehas Lyman of Suffield, Ct., and of Ebenezer Lyman his brother, whose granddaughter, Esther Lyman, was the mother of Rev. Dr. Lyman Beecher.).

He married Freedom Woodward, daughter of Henry Woodward and Elizabeth (?), on 18 November 1662 at Northampton, MA.6,5,7 Jedediah Strong married Abigail Bartlett on 19 December 1681.6,7,5 Jedediah Strong married Mary Hart, daughter of Stephen Hart, on 5 January 1691/92 at Northampton, MA.5,7 Jedediah Strong died on 22 May 1733 at Coventry, Tolland Co., CT, at age 96.5

“He was a a farmer at Northampton until 1709, when at the age of 70 years and upwards he removed with his family to Coventry, Ct., where 24 years afterwards he died. During the years 1677-8 & 9, he was paid 18 shillings a year for blowing the trumpet on Sunday to summon the people to church. He lived with his first wife 19 years, with his second 7, and with his third wife 9, and notwithstanding his three marriages spent 33 years as a widower, and 61 unmarried.

“Mary died from the injury which she received the day previous, by the fall of the horse on which she was riding (on a pillion behind her husband), when just started well upon their way to Coventry, together, to visit their children. the record reads thus at Northampton: “Oct. 9, 1710, Jedediah Strong and wife set out early in the morning to visit their children, at Coventry; but when they came against the Falls (at S. Hadley) among the broad smooth stones, the horse’s feet slipped up and he fell flat on the off side and by the fall killed the woman: though she was not quite dead then, but had life in her until the next day — yet never spoke a word.” — Benjamin Dwight

There are apparently many misconceptions about the identities of Jedediah’s three wives. Kathleen Fenton discusses their identities at length in The Connecticut Nutmegger of September 2000.
