Shakespeare to Reverend Wilson

Here is the line from  Abigail Shakespeare Webb to Reverend Wilson. Our literary fame surpasses our artistic fame. Royal Rosamond is amazed by this lineage from Writer’s Heaven. The muses have been good to us. We are Boston Bluebloods. This line is spliced to Rosamond Clifford and the Culpepers.

Date of birth has also been erroneously reported to be December 24, 1534.

Date of death has also been erroneously reported to be 1573.

NOTA BIEN: It has been alleged that this Sir Henry was a baronet, but the Baronetage of England was not formed until May 22, 1611.

It was said that Sir Henry Alexander Webb (1510-1544) established the family for all future time, since to him “for valiant deeds of his father”, Sir John Alexander Webb, of Oldstock, “who was an officer under Kings Henry VII and VIII”, the present generally accepted emblem, or coat of arms, was granted. This heraldic ensigna of rank in the New Nobility, that of the thegus, owe their origin in personal service to the prince then reigning. The New Nobility was accordingly one of office due to meritorious service. The device of hereditary coat of armour, a growth of the twelfth century, did much to define and mark out the noble class throughout Europe. When once acquired by grant of the Sovereign, it went on from generation to generation. They who possessed the right of coat of armour formed the class of nobility or gentry.

Sir Henry Alexander Webb married Grace Arden, sister of Robert Arden. Mary Webb (Shakespeare’s grandmother) married Robert Arden, brother of Grace.

He was “of Wellsbourne, Lincolnshire, gentleman, who was buried in Saint George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle, where he presumably was some sort of official, although there is no record of more than his burial there.”
“William Wilson apparently moved from Welbourn to Windsor in Berkshire where he held a position of sufficient importance that he was called gentleman and was buried in the Chapel of Saint George by Windsor Castle.”
He was “‘late of Wellsbourne, Lincolnshire, gent., ‘ who is buried in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.”

Hi Greg. Do you have a copy of my paper, “The Royal Plantagenets and the Toneys”. If you will send me your email address, I will send you a copy. All the best.


Just as he uses true historical figures as characters in his story “Young Goodman Brown,” Nathaniel Hawthorne writes into his narrative of “The Scarlet Letter” the “stern divine” John Wilson, a minister who came to America in 1630. A strong figure of Puritan intolerance he appears in Chapter III in the first scaffold scene. However, Hawthorne describes him in such a way as to suggest his Puritanical ineffectiveness and punitive nature:

withal a man of kind and genial spirit….an attribute [that] was…a matter of shame than self-congratulation with him….There he stood, with a border of grizzled locks beneath his skull-cap; while his gray eyes, accustomed to the shaded light of his study , were winking, like those of Hester’s infant, in the unadulterated sunshine. He looked like the darkly engraved portraits which we see prefixed to old volumes of sermons; and no more right than of those portraits would have to step forth, as he now did and meddle with a question of human guilt, passion, and anguish.

Alluding to the judges of the witchcraft trials, Hawthorne suggests the Puritanical sanctimony in the Reverend Wilson who admits that he overrides the concern of Mr. Dimmesdale that it is a wrongdoing to question her in “such broad daylight, and in the presence of so great a multitude.” But, Mr. Wilson, continues, he has explained to Dimmesdale that the wrongdoing is in the “commission of the sin, and not in the showing of it forth.” He, then, bids the Reverend Dimmesdale to step forward and question Hester. But, despite his pleas, Hester refuses. Mr. Wilson cries “more harshly than before,”

Woman, transgress not beyond the limits of Heaven’s mercy!

The Reverend Mr. Wilson appears again at the mansion of Governor Bellingham and questions Hester about her right to raise the little girl. When he asks Pearl who “made thee,” Pearl astonishes him by replying that she was plucked from the wild rose bush by the prison. After this response, the Reverend Wilson feels the child should be taken from Hester, believing the mother wishes to “make a mountain bank of this child.”

When Roger Chillingworth suggests that they guess the father of the child, the “good Mr. Wilson” suggests that it would be “sinful” to pursue the matter; better to “pray and fast upon it.” Mr. Wilson does not appear again until the second scaffold scene in Chapter XII, and then he does perceive Mr. Dimmesdale through the darkness even though Dimmesdale barely restrains himself from speaking:

The venerable Father Wilson continued to step slowly onward, looking carefully at the muddy parthway before his feet.

And, finally, in the third scaffold scene, “the venerable John Wison,…stepped forward hastily to offer his support” to Reverend Dimmesdale, but the young minister “repelled the old man’s arm.”

Symbolic of Puritanism and its ineffectiveness in assuaging the soul, the Reverend Mr. Wilson is part of the tableaux that present the punitive character of Puritanism and its ineffectiveness.

Enter – The Clifford Dragon

I have every intention of dethroning George Martin, grabbing his Emmy from his hand, melting it down to make a sword, and drive it into to cold green heart of his fictional dragon: For, he dips his pin into the Rosy Book and Blood of my ancestors, and makes money on our struggles  and sorrows.

The Clifford family bonded with the Greystokes, who appear to vanish into thin air, giving rise to the legend of Tarzan. Consider Miriam Starfish.

As a spirit, I will enter Skipton Castle and haunt this place where my ancestors did tread. If I were my daughter, I would put an end to her, and everyone’s Cat and Mouse Game, and take all that lured this minor child away form her father – to court! Too many mouse holes does a dull daughter, make. Be the Dragon Born, or the Dragon Gates will be closed to you……..forever!

Grasp the little meese by their tails, and put them outside the gate, and the rosy world will be yours.

John de Clifford, 9th Baron Clifford (1435?-1461)

JOHN DE CLIFFORD, 9TH BARON CLIFFORD, son of Thomas, eighth baron Clifford, was born in 1435 or 1436.1

He makes his first appearance in February 1458, when, together with Somerset and the Earl of Northumberland, he is found ‘with a grete power’ lodged without ‘the walls of London aboute Temple barre and Westmynstre,’ clamouring for compensation for the death of his father at St. Albans. On this occasion the king [Henry VI] and his council intervened, and ordered the Duke of York and the Earls of Salisbury and Warwick to establish masses for the souls of the slain nobles and to pay their representatives ‘a notable sum of money.’2

Clifford seems now to have been perfectly reconciled with his former enemies, and his name is found as one of the lords attainted with York, Warwick, and Salisbury, after the battle of Blore Heath, at the parliament of Coventry in November 1459.3  About the same time (38 Henry VI) he was made commissary-general of the Scotch marches,4  and a conservator of the truce with Scotland.5  In July 1460 he was summoned to parliament.6

The Head of Richard of York, with a paper crownHe was one of the Lancastrian leaders at the battle of Wakefield7  in December 1460, where he is reported to have slain the Earl of Rutland, the young son of the Duke of York, with his own hands.8  For his acts of cruelty he is said to have received the by-name of ‘the Butcher’.9  In the same battle he is charged with having cut off the head of the dead Duke of York and presented it decked with a paper crown to Queen Margaret.10

Two months later he was present at the second battle of St. Albans (February 1461), but was slain within six weeks at Ferrybridge, on the eve of the battle of Towton.11  The same year he was attainted by act of parliament12  His barony of Skipton went to Sir William Stanley, that of Westmoreland to Richard of Gloucester.

He left three children, of whom the eldest, Henry (d.1523), is the hero of one of Wordsworth’s happiest poems.

Dragon Born Elijah

I was born October 8, 1946 at 6:02 P.M. just as the sun set in Oakland California. Though the Draconid star shower did not peak till the next day, the nurses were bidding Rosemary to come to the window and look in amazement. She was too spent.

Two men who invaded Wales took the name Drago, which means ‘dragon’. King Henry 1  took Nest Rhys as his mistress. I am looking at Rosamond Clifford being the daughter of Rhys royalty, she exchanged with her brother in a peace treaty King Henry 11 made with the King of Wales.

I suspect Elijah conducted a battle of magic with the prophets of Baal. There were balls of fire over Los Angeles.

The Muslims claim they discovered America before Columbus. The Welsh ruler Madoc got here first. Did members of the Rhys family come with? Were any beautiful women on board. ISIS treats women very badly. Need I say I take the Muslim claim, and cast it down. Erdogen, the Muslim leader of Turkey, claims a Muslim sailor got here in 1178. Sorry Charlie! Madoc and my Welsh kindred got here in 1170.

Madog was fleeing the strife in Wales. His father fought King Henry 11 whose mistress was Rosamond Clifford, the granddaughter of Drago.
