In Rena Easton’s letter to me, where she come out of the darkness where she lurk, she hardly says a word about me. She apologizes for being a “abusive girl”, and she bids me to be civil towards “Red-Necks”, a name she misspells because she doesn’t know what a Redneck is. I correct her. Is this what really piss-off the Monster of the Id?
Rena asked me to be respectful of her Red-Neck husband, but, I wondered why she isn’t using his surname – if they are married! Hmmmm! Maybe sheriff Dan Mayland should start asking some real questions.
What was really missing in Rena’s letter was any account of our time together, and, she never speaks of me being her Knight in Shining Armor – who rescued her.
Above are images of Saint George slaying the Dragon – The Beast! It looks like I am kin the Rougemonts who founded the Noble Order of Saint George, that has ties to the House of Orange and William of Orange. If Rena became a British subject when she married Sir Ian Easton, then Saint George is her Patron Saint.
Above is a photo of Bennett Rosamond who was a grandmaster of the Orange Order in Canada. The Rosamond family represents the Lodge in America. I believe many of the readers of this blog are members of the Orange Lodge, because I post revelations pretainting to the Ulster-Scots.
Here is another candidate for what made Rena really frightened.
The other source you have to consider for Rena’s fear – is meth!
In 1925 William Sam Rosamond did a relatively complete genealogy. His research indicated that we were descended from a Huguenot born in France sometime in the mid to late 1600s. He discovered that his earliest traceable ancestor was a “Sergeant” Rosamond who left France following the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes on 22nd October 1685. He found that Sergeant Rosamond supposedly travelled to Holland where he joined the army of William III, went to England, and from there went with William’s army to Ireland. He fought in the Battle of the Boyne on 1st July 1690 (by the old calendar – 12th July by the new calendar) and then remained in County Leitrim, Ireland. (There is still a family of Rosamonds in County Leitrim.) He had three sons, two of whom went to the American colonies and settled in the mid-Atlantic region. One of the sons’ names was either John or Thomas Rosamond. Current researchers have not been able to confirm this connection. It appears probable that the American branch of the family are descended from John “The Highwayman” Rosamond who arrived in Annapolis, Maryland in 1725. He was sentenced to be transported into 14 years servitude for robbery from the Oxford Assizes. This John could be the son of Sergeant William Rosamond, and the mix up in names likely stems from the fact that his father-in-law’s name was Thomas Wilson.
2. Mary Jane Loya of California, whose mother was born in County Leitrim, Ireland, still has cousins living in England, some of whom are also researching the family history. Her family there has the same story of Sergeant Rosamond except that they show his name as James, and say that he took part in the Battle of the Boyne on 1st July 1690. He distinguished himself during the battle and William III, following the battle, knighted him. The family in England, specifically her cousin Jane, has a Coat of Arms for the family name, which is supposed to date back to that date.
The origins of this term are Scottish and refer to supporters of the National Covenant and The Solemn League and Covenant, or Covenanters, largely Lowland Presbyterians, many of whom would flee Scotland for Ulster (Northern Ireland) during persecutions by the British Crown. The Covenanters of 1638 and 1641 signed the documents that stated that Scotland desired the Presbyterian form of church government and would not accept the Church of England as its official state church.
Many Covenanters signed in their own blood and wore red pieces of cloth around their necks as distinctive insignia; hence the term Red neck, which became slang for a Scottish dissenter. One Scottish immigrant, interviewed by the author, remembered a Presbyterian minister, one Dr. Coulter, in Glasgow in the 1940’s wearing a red clerical collar – is this symbolic of the rednecks? Since many Ulster-Scottish settlers in America (especially in the South) were Presbyterian, the term was applied to them, and then, later, their Southern descendants. One of the earliest examples of its use comes from 1830, when an author noted that red-neck was a name bestowed upon the Presbyterians. It makes one wonder if the originators of the ever-present redneck jokes are aware of the term’s origins?
The origin of this American nickname for mountain folk in the Ozarks and in Appalachia comes from Ulster. Ulster-Scottish (The often incorrectly labeled “Scots-Irish”) settlers in the hill-country of Appalachia brought their traditional music with them to the new world, and many of their songs and ballads dealt with William, Prince of Orange, who defeated the Catholic King James II of the Stuart family at the Battle of the Boyne, Ireland in 1690.
Supporters of King William were known as Orangemen and Billy Boys and their North American counterparts were soon referred to as hill-billies. It is interesting to note that a traditional song of the Glasgow Rangers football club today begins with the line, ‘Hurrah! Hurrah! We are the Billy Boys!’ and shares its tune with the famous American Civil War song, Marching Through Georgia.
Origin (1390)The noble Brotherhood of Saint Georgewas created in 1390 by two gentlemen of Franche-Comté to honor the relics of the megalomartyr that had been brought back from the Holy Land. Philibert de Mollans, squire to the Duke of Burgundy, was its main driving force. His second-in-command, Jehan d’Andelot, was the son of Sir Jean of Andelot-les-Sallins, and of Marie of Usier, Lady of Vaudrey and Rougemont, where lived the precursors and was held the annual chapter.
I, John Gregory Presco, send an invitation to, Irene Victoria Easton, to come with me to Bellevaux for a reunion. I have a Trust that will pay for transportation, but not for food and lodging. If you accept, I will contact the History Channel to see if they will film, even fund our adventure. Our Quest to find the tombs of the Knight Templars who owned the Shroud of Turin, will be seen by millions.
Let us leave in October, mon beau voyageur, and bring our capes. Let us leave our tracks in the snow as we gaze upon the beautiful mountains and valley. We are Romantics. We must put on another play ma belle muse who taught me there is life after beauty, and I could have a beautiful life. Bellevaux means ‘Beautiful Valley’.
I just found the Abbey Bellevaux where the Lords of Rougemont, and the Bishops of Besançon are buried. The Rougemonts were Knights Templar and owners of the Shroud of Turin as were the Lords of La Roche. Pons La Roche was the founder of Bellevaux where very possibley my Rougemont ancestors are buried. Pons is close kindred of the De Bar and Habsburg family. Why would the Habsburg keep their connection to the Knights Templar and Shroud of Turin a secret? The Habsburgs were ‘defenders of the Catholic faith’.
“In 1825, in the village of Fenagh in county Leitrim in Ireland, a
gang of Catholic youths attacked the Rosamond home. The Rosamonds were
staunch Protestants. James, aged 20 (born 1805) and his brother Edward, aged
15, attempted to protect their mother. A shot was fired by Edward and a
youth was dead. The boys fled to Canada. James went to Merrickville where he
worked for James Merrick as a weaver. Edward, still fearing arrest, worked
his way eventually to Memphis, Tennessee.”
“On August 24, 2011, I posted the idea that my mother’s parents came together to repair a split in the church. Royal’s kindred were Orangemen, and Mary’s kindred were Catholics, priests and nuns of the Order of Saint Francis that had to flee Germany. I have long wondered if this caused their split. To discover that Jeannette and Ann Hart, our ancestors, were ex-communicated by their family of Patriots because they converted to Catholicism, is profound.”
The Orange Institution (more commonly known as the Orange Order, the Orange Lodge or the Orangemen) is a Protestant fraternal organisation based at Schomberg House, Belfast, Northern Ireland. Founded in 1796 near the village of Loughgall in County Armagh, its name is a tribute to the Dutch-born Protestant King William of Orange, who defeated the army of the Catholic king James II at the Battle of the Boyne in 1690. Although based in Northern Ireland, the Institution also has a significant presence in lowland Scotland and lodges throughout the Commonwealth and United States.
Politically, the Orange Order is strongly linked to unionism. The Order sees itself as defending Protestant civil and religious liberties, whilst critics have accused the Order of being sectarian, triumphalist and supremacist. As a Protestant society, non-Protestants cannot become members unless they agree to adhere to the principles of Orangeism and convert.
