My British travel mate and I discussed ‘Hands Across The Water’. Rena was our Ambassador of Love, as well as our Aries Goddess of War. Rena Victoria Easton is a Shield Maiden. She is the Keeper of the Eternal Flame who embraces two shores.
Irene Victoria will be my model for Fair Rosamond Clifford. I am kin to Winston Churchill who founded the Royal College of Defense Studies that Sir Ian Easton headed. The Legend of Fair Rosamond is at the core of Woodstock and Blenheim Palace where Churchill and the Spenser family were raised. To discover the looms in Salem, is profound. The clue of the red-thread leads to the Holy Grail that was destined to serve two Nations, weave them together as one to make one flag – The Flag of the Holy Grail. Will William Windsor and Kate bring a beautiful girl into the world? She will be a Rose of the World, if so.
Here is another thread that ties my kindred to the Royal Family via the Hart Sisters, one who married my great, great, great grandfather, Sir Isaac Hull, the Captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise and Constitution. ‘Hands Across the Universe’. Make it so!
It is time to form a more perfect Cultural Bond between two nations, not based upon greed and deregulation, but based upon the dreams of the Woodstock Nations.
Irene means ‘serene’. Rena is our Peaceful Victory who went overseas to bring home a flame – that she holds high. She is our United Liberty who has lost her husband and daughter, but, not her Dream.
The Tomb of our Sorrows is about to open, and We will know Joy again!
The great grandmother of John Witherspoon Owen Breckenridge, is the Ann Witherspoon, the daughter of Signer, John Witherspoon. His great grandfather, was John Breckenridge, Attorney General of the United States in the Cabinet of President Thomas Jefferson. I lived with Dottie Witherspoon in Boston, and met many Witherspoons in South Carolina who are kin to the actress, Reese Witherspoon.
On Sunday the fourteenth of August, I discovered that the Preston family married into the House of Stewart, and thus my family are kin to this royal family that includes Princess Diana and her two sons, William and Harry Windsor. Now I know why the Queen stayed at Blair House, and why John Breckenridge fled to England after he lost the Civil War – that the House of Stewart may have backed! This is huge!
Mary Stewart. She was the daughter of William Stewart, 1st Viscount Mountjoy and Hon. Mary Coote.1,2 From 1692, her married name became Preston.2 From 1709, her married name became Forbes. As a result of her marriage, Hon. Mary Stewart was styled as Countess of Granard on 24 August 1734.

In her book that was shown me at the Portland Historic Society ‘A Year Of American Travel’ by Jessie Benton’ I read the following;
“At the Astor hotel where we were staying, we found a party of our relatives, my cousin, General William Preston, and his family assemble to welcome back from Europe a member who had been away for years.”
Through the brilliant marriage of my later sister, Christine Rosamond Benton, I and my stepson, Hollis Lee Williams, are kin to William and Harry, and their late mother, Princess Diana.
My daughter and my sister, who formed a secret bond behind my back, and betrayed me as family trustees, shall have not part in this Family Tree, and are hereby bannished from the family.
In 1922 a cabinet committee under Winston Churchill, then Secretary of State for the Colonies, recommended the formation of the College. The college was founded in 1927 as the Imperial Defence College and was located at 9 Buckingham Gate until 1939. Its objective at that time was the defence of the Empire. In 1946, following the end of World War II, the college reopened at Seaford House, Belgrave Square and members of the United States forces started attending courses. It was renamed the Royal College of Defence Studies in 1970 and in 2007 the Queen and Prince Philip visited the college.
The Spencers later joined the Churchills upon the marriage of Charles Spencer, 3rd Earl of Sunderland and Lady Anne Churchill, daughter of the most celebrated Duke of Marlborough. From them descends the current line of the Spencer family which was divided into two branches. The senior line are currently the ducal line of the Spencer family who holds the Dukedom of Marlborough. The 5th Duke of Marlborough later changed their surname to Spencer-Churchill to emphasize their descent from the first duke. The junior line are currently the comital branch of the family who holds the title Earl Spencer.
The comital branch of the Spencer family can trace their ancestry to most of Britain’s nobility as well as to most of Europe’s royal houses. The Spencers are direct descendants albeit illegitimate of the House of Stuart, with the family boasting at-least five line of direct descendancy from the Stuarts, and from them, the Spencers can trace their ancestry to other royal houses such as the Bourbons, the Medicis, the Wittelsbachs, the Hanovers, the Sforzas, and the Habsburgs. More-so, the Spencers are one of the very few British noble families to be the heirs body of a once sovereign family, being the senior female-line descendants of John Churchill, the once sovereign Prince of Mindelheim.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

William Stewart, 1st Earl of Blessington (7 April 1709 – 14 August 1769) was an Anglo-Irish peer and member of the House of Lords, styled The Honourable until 1728 and known as William Stewart, 3rd Viscount Mountjoy from 1728 to 1745.
Sir William Stewart was born on 7 April 1709, the son of William Stewart, 2nd Viscount Mountjoy (1675-1727) and Anne Boyle. He married Eleanor Fitzgerald, daughter of Robert Fitzgerald on 10 January 1733. They had two children, William Stewart and Lionel Robert, both of whom died before their father.
He succeeded his father as Viscount Mountjoy on 10 January 1727. He was Grand Master of the Freemasons (in Ireland) between 1738 and 1740. He was created Earl of Blessington on 7 December 1745, his mother having been sister and sole heiress of Charles, 2nd and last Viscount Blesington. He was made Governor of County Tyrone and in 1748, was sworn of the Privy Council of Ireland.
On his death in London on 14 August 1769 he was buried at Silchester in Hampshire. His peerages became extinct, but his baronetcy was inherited by a distant cousin, Sir Annesley Stewart
The House of Stewart (also known as the House of Stuart) is a European royal house. Founded by Robert II of Scotland, the Stewarts first became monarchs of the Kingdom of Scotland during the late 14th century, and subsequently held the position of the Kings of Great Britain and Ireland. Their direct ancestors (from Brittany) had held the title High Steward of Scotland since the 12th century, after arriving by way of Norman England. The dynasty inherited further territory by the 17th century which covered the entire British Isles, including the Kingdom of England and Kingdom of Ireland, also upholding a claim to the Kingdom of France.
In total, nine Stewart monarchs ruled just Scotland from 1371 until 1603. After this there was a Union of the Crowns under James VI & I who had become the senior genealogical claimant to all of the holdings of the extinct House of Tudor. Thus there were six Stuart monarchs who ruled both England and Scotland as well as Ireland (although the Stuart era was interrupted by an interregnum lasting from 1649–1660, as a result of the English Civil War). Additionally at the foundation of the Kingdom of Great Britain after the Acts of Union, which politically united England and Scotland, the first monarch was Anne of Great Britain. After her death, all the holdings passed to the House of Hanover, under the terms of the Act of Settlement 1701.
I 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’?

Notes and summaries
Papers collected by Rev. Samuel F. Jarvis of Middletown, Connecticut. Includes correspondence to Rev. Jarvis, as well as papers for the estates of Anna McCurdy (Hart) Hull, her husband Commodore Isaac Hull, and her father, Elisha Hart. Sarah McCurdy Hart, Anna Hull’s sister and Elisha Hart’s eldest daughter, was married to Samuel F. Jarvis. The marriage ended in a divorce that was scandalous at the time. Some letters are written in French. A circular from Funchal, Madeira, is in Portuguese. Includes a broadside (folded) advertising an auction of the items of Anna Hull’s estate.

Sarah in Hebrew means “princess” or “queen”. If Simon Bolivar had married Jeannette Hart, one of the most beautiful women in America, then she would have been the Queen of the Americas. Instead, her remains lie forgotten and disgraced in a grave that is shrouded in mystery. I suspect, because Jeannette converted to Catholicism, her Puritancial kindred (who were famous Reverends) would not let her be buried anywhere near her Protestant cousins whose bones were everywhere.
It is alleged Jeannette bought her own plot to bury her negro slave, Sarah, next to her, but, I suspect this is her stillborn child who may have been aborted when this American Princess beheld the love of her life in a victory parade with his mistress. Bolivar tried to get the remains of this child buried in his homeland, believing it was his child. Simon was a Liberator. I am reminded of the fight over the Heirs of my late sister, the world famous artist ‘Rosamond’.
There is another grave that is un-marked. I suspect Ann Hart Hull is buried here, she too a convert to Catholicism. Did Ann adhore the ostracism her sister suffered, and took her side completely, even after being threatened with excommunication from her famous relatives who in the end – did not have a heart? Jessie Benton, the daughter of Thomas Hart Benton, was ostracised when whe delcred she was an Abolitionist.
Did Ann have a child, or, children by Commodor Isaac Hull, who under great family pressure, turned their back on their mother, their father, and their aunt, who lived together? Jeannette, never married. How tragic. Her great beauty had gone to waste – until now!
To think what could have been! Here is your Sleeping Beauty kingdom. Here is the equal to the legends of Fair Rosamond, who could have been a queen. That Jeannette is kin to Princess Diana, and her two sons who are Princess’ of the realm – who may rule as Kings someday – is astounding. The seven Hart sisters, their beautiful constellation, is in the Windsor family tree! At home, they are seven liberated stars found in a field of blue.
Then there is the legend of Sarah, alleged daughter of Jesus and Mary Magdalene, who founded a sleeping kingdom, that in our time has awoken – if you believe!
This morning, I have been looking at the Hart family DNA project so I can turn a Rosamond Family Legend into real genealogical and royal history, for Royal Rosamond’s claim that he descends from Ann and Isaac Hull was made before the Harts formed blood ties to the Spencer and Windsor family. Did I not promise my grandson, Tyler Hunt, a kingdom? Now, add the lineage of Thomas Hart Betnon to the Hart family of Cambridge, and one has to ask who is directing this coming together of two Hart lines formed when Christine Rosamond Presco, married Paul Garfield Benton?
From this union was born Drew Benton, who has been living with her aunt, Vicki Presco, for seven months. Drew in kin to two Signers of the Constitution, John Hart, and John Witherspoon, and counless politicians and statesmen who made this Democracy great. If there was American Royalt, then Drew is a Princess.
Then there is my recent discovery of a book that installs the Arthurian Legends in a family that will go un-named for now, but, this real Grail Legend includes Fair Rosamond, and Princess Diana Spencer. This blog that is a genelogical story of the Rosamonds in American, and the world, has come across the waters to Britain and its royal people, who I need not prove are my kindred to own this story, but need only ask;
“What is in a name?” and “Where does my heart lie?”
Rene D’Anjou Duke of Bar set out to retrieve his heart that was stolen in the dead of night. The Captain of the Enterpise was like the Knight Cueur to the seven Hart sisters, this dashing Captian taking them on cruises aboard the U.S.S. Constitution, because, there’s a great big widw world out there! Unfortunately, much of it is captured in the little minds of bigotted people, who hate beauty, and go out of their way to destroy it.
Need I point out the importance of Sarah being Jeannette’s black slave, this slave buried in the land of American Blue Bloods and Patriots – the alleged Lovers of Freedom! But, only one Hart……was true! Only one Hart soars with the wings of Eagles!
I am going to take a month off from blogging so I can finish my book and get it published. I will be contacting the History Channel, and Histories Mysteries to see if they want to see if there are two beautiful Hart sister buried side by side – waiting to be forgiven, and reborn. Or, if the Hart and Hull family were abolitionists when it came to equal rights in the eyes of God, when we all take that last voyage, and venture to hither side.
There exist a solution to every problem if one searches long and hard enough. In hindsight, my late sister should have founded a monthly magazine that would have her latest image of a beautiful woman on the cover. Inside the cover is an order form so a collector can purchase a serigraph. Why Pierrot and Belford did not see the light, is because they are not creative people, nor was Vic Presco, or is Vicki Presco, who were partners of Christine. Their attempt to sell Rosamond Women through American Express, was a lead duck in water.
Royal Rosamond published his own magazine ‘Bright Stories’. My grandfather was the president of Gem Publishing. Royal Rosamond Press republished Rosamond’s ‘At Martha Healy’s Grave’ in 1998. Thanks to my extensive genealogical study, I discovered my niece, Drew Benton, is kin to the artist Philip Boileau the son of Susan Benton, sister of Jessie Benton who married John Fremont ‘The Trailblazer’. Boileu did covers for Post.
Royal published his stories and poems in several magazines, ‘Out West’ being one of them. His friend, Dashel Hammett, published five stories in Redbook one of them being ‘The Thin Man’. Royal would have done well if her hired an artist to paint his beautiful wife, Mary Magdalene Rosamond, and put her on the cover of his new magazine aimed at a female audience.
I am now seeking investors in our families traditional magazine market.
I have been exchanging e-mails with a member of the Sharon family about revising the Sharon Family reunion at the Palace Hotel in San Francisco. I was invited to go to Europe with a member of the Hesketh-Fermor family, who are kin to my niece, Drew Benton, and thus the Prescos. We are all kin to Lloyd Tevis the President of Welles Fargo Bank.
I have put on pause my homework of family relations. I do know some of the California Sharons and I am familiar with the reunion that use to take place in San Francisco, but I have been swamped. I would love to refresh the reunion for our family. I am not familiar with the names on your email yet. I don’t know if you sent email to Philip or had misplaced my name. I will start more family connections with the Sharon clan soon.
Hi Jon- Get ready- much info coming now- please go ASAP to tatler.com- June issue page 102- big article on the new owner of Easton Neston- Leon Max- I’m headed there with James Baring and Bob and Joanne Fermor tomorrow.
Witherspoon Owen Breckenridge married Louise Tevis Breckenridge Sharon, the daughter of Lloyd Tevis, president of Wells Fargo and one of the richest men in California. When he became president of Wells Fargo, it was an express coach company. When he retired, it was a bank as we know it today. Tevis was assessed by the state of California as having a fortune worth $1,590,000.00 in 1880
John Witherspoon Breckenridge, son of Congressman, Senator, Vice President, Presidential Candidate and Confederate General John C. Breckenridge, c. 1878 and lived in San Rafael, CA. Their marriage ended in divorce and she married secondly Frederick W. Sharon.
Frederick Sharon was the son of Senator William Sharon (right), one of California’s very richest men. Sharon arrived in San Francisco in 1849, first investing in real estate, then also in mining and banking. By 1880, the state of California assessed his personal fortune at $4,470,000.002 and he was the largest single taxpayer in the state. Louise and Frederick were married at Sharon’s 55,360 square foot palatial estate ‘Belmont’ in 1884 (below).
The information found here comes from The Prestons of Smithfield and Greenfield in Virginia by John Frederick Dorman who is one of the preeminent authorities of Virginia genealogy. The descendants of John Preston and Elizabeth Patton are remarkable for the number of outstanding individuals spread over several generations. There are literally dozens of politicians, military men (including generals on both sides of the Civil War), preachers, doctors and authors. This is only a sampling of people who caught my attention. I strongly recommend anyone interested in this family to find The Prestons of Smithfield and Greenfield in Virginia.
