Found via a DNA test. There is a link to the Boone family. Richard Bennett was the Governor of Virginia where there is a county called the Isle of Wight because many settlers came from there. Richard gave Maryland to the Catholics and was a Puritan who became a Quaker.

Bennett’s descendants include Richard Bland II,[13] John Randolph of Roanoke,[14] Henry Lee III,[14] Robert E. Lee,[14] and Roger Atkinson Pryor.[13]

William Randolph I (bapt. 7 November 1650 – 11 April 1711) was an American colonist, landowner, planter, merchant, and politician who played an important role in the history and government of the English colony of Virginia. He moved to Virginia sometime between 1669 and 1673, and married Mary Isham (ca. 1659 – 29 December 1735) a few years later.[1][2] His descendants include many prominent individuals including Thomas Jefferson, John Marshall, Paschal Beverly Randolph, Robert E. Lee,[3] Peyton Randolph, Edmund Randolph, John Randolph of Roanoke, George W. Randolph, and Edmund Ruffin. Genealogists have taken an interest in him for his progeny’s many marital alliances, referring to him and Mary Isham as “the Adam and Eve of Virginia

  • Mention of the ‘Bennett, ‘Molyns/Moliens’ and Bromley family heads, and specifically several ancestors, Sir Thomas Bennett, his wife Ann Moleyns Bennett, their son, Richard, Thomas Bromley, and Micheal Moleyns.

From: The borough of Wallingford: Churches and Charities | British History Online ‘The Liberty of Clapcot, Manors….

This Edmund Rede was making settlements of the manor of Rush Court in 1448 and 1451, and had to bring an action against Walter Mountell, a trustee to his use who refused to reconvey the property. Mountell apparently claimed that he held the estate by grant of Thomas Rothwell, who had been enfeoffed by Robert James, but he evidently failed to prove his claim, as Edmund Rede recovered possession. On the death of Edmund in June 1489 the manor of Rush was valued at £10. His property in Clapcot included the manor-house, known as Anastyes, evidently from the name of its 14th-century owner. This property passed to Edmund Rede’s grandson William, the son of William Rede. In 1490 Edmund’s widow Katherine was assigned dower from her late husband’s lands. Sir William Rede died in 1527, the manor of Rush then being in the hands of trustees, who were to raise from it £600 due to John Heron. Sir William’s son and heir Leonard Rede made various settlements of the manor of Rush and his lands in Clapcot in 1531, and soon afterwards leased them to Thomas Bennett for a term of years which expired at Lady Day, 1550. In May 1547, however, Rede leased the property, after the expiration of Bennett’s term, to Thomas Dynham for fifty years. Thomas Dynham shortly afterwards, in 1550, demised his interest to Agnes Bennett (widow of Thomas Bennett, who died in 1547) for forty-one years with remainder to Oliver Dynham, the brother of Thomas. Agnes then conveyed her interest to her son Richard Bennett, and owing to these complications of interest Oliver Dynham applied to the Court of Chancery for an order that Richard Bennett should put the deeds in safe keeping. In all these proceedings the property is described as the manors of Clapcot and Rush Court, though it does not appear that any considerable addition had been made to the estate formerly known as ‘the manor of Rushcourt with lands in Clapcot,’ and henceforward the names of both manors are always used to denote the property. Thomas Dynham was described as tenant for life in 1550, and Oliver Dynham seems to have been acknowledged as owner of the reversion after the expiration of Bennett’s lease, at his death before 1563, but the title of his nephew John Dynham, to whom the reversion apparently descended, and the title of the lessee Richard Bennett, were disputed by George Rede, son and heir of Leonard Rede. The proceedings evidently resulted in favour of the Dynham family, and in 1571 John Dynham conveyed the property to Thomas Bromley, then solicitor-general, by whom it was sold five years later to Michael Moleyns. He represented the borough of Wallingford in Parliament in 1558–9, was sheriff of the county in 1583 and knighted in 1592. He died on 14 May 1615, the manors of Clapcot and Rush Court passing to his son Sir Barentine Moleyns, who was dealing with them by fine in 1617 and 1627. Before 1631 he had been followed by his son Michael Moleyns, who took the king’s side in the Civil War, and suffered severely in fortune, his house at Wallingford being burnt down. In addition he had to mortgage the manors of Clapcot and Rush in 1635 to Sir Nathaniel Brent, as security for a loan of £2,000, but when the mortgagee attempted to foreclose in 1640 Michael Moleyns refused to give up the property, and an action in Chancery followed. Brent was successful, but Moleyns refused to obey the Chancery decree, and, protected by the governor of the castle, for a time defied the law. At the Restoration a payment of £4,000 was ordered to be made to Michael Moleyns in part compensation for his losses during the Civil War, but he was unable to clear off the mortgage on his manors of Clapcot and Rush, which passed to Basil Brent. Brent was holding in 1660, in which year he conveyed the manors to Edward Sedgwick. The latter’s son or successor Thomas Sedgwick was holding in 1666, when he seems to have alienated them to Sir John Lockhart. Basil Brent seems still to have retained some interest in the property, for, when the manors were sold to Henry Barker in 1675, Basil Brent was one of the parties to the conveyance. The manors remained in the Barker family for nearly 150 years. In 1749 they were held by Henry Barker, and from him they passed to Henry Thomas Barker, who held the estate in 1813. It was purchased soon afterwards from ‘the Rev. Mr. Barker’ by Mr. Charles Greenwood, who left it to his nephew Mr. William Reginald Lybbe Powys-Lybbe. The last-named sold the property in 1886 to Mr. Charles Fuller, of whom it was purchased in 1900 by Mr. George Denison Faber, C.B., M.P.
