William Fauntleroy

1Robert H. Fauntleroy, Fauntleroy Family, The, Microfilm published: Washington, 1952, FHL 1318331 Item 3. "lived at Fauntleroy's Marsh which he inherited from his father, and died in 1607. He married first Mary Hurd, in the chapel in the courtyard at Fauntleroys Marsh, in 1602. He married secondly Nazer ----, by whom he had no issue."

2Rev. Arnold Harris Hord, Hord family of Virginia. A supplement to the Genealogy of the Hord Family., 1915, Pg 8. "     The fact that the Hord and Fauntleroy families in England were related, that the mother of William Faunt­leroy, head of the Fauntleroy family at the time of Colonel Moore Fauntleroy's emigration, was Mary Hord, would indicate that Alan Hord, who came with Colonel Moore Fauntleroy to Virginia, was a relative of Mary (Hord) Fauntleroy and of William Hord, Lord of the Manor of Lillington. "The Virginia settlers," writes Dr. Lyon G. Tyler, president of William and Mary College, "came over in families or groups of connections " (" William and Mary Quarterly," Vol. XXIII, page 177).
    The name of Alan Hord as it is written in a copy of the patent of Colonel Moore Fauntleroy, now in the Vir­ginia Land Office, is "Aolan Hoord." The late Mr. Loth rop Withington of London who had many years experi­ence in reading ancient manuscripts, after examining the Fauntleroy patent, stated that this name was undoubtedly Allen Hord. " The books of the Land Office," he wrote were copied from earlier records some time between 1683-1690." Image.

2Rev. Arnold Harris Hord, Hord family of Virginia. A supplement to the Genealogy of the Hord Family., 1915, Pg 4. "At the time of Colonel Moore Fauntleroy's emigration to Virginia, the head of the Fauntleroy family and the possessor of "Fauntleroy's Marsh," the ancient seat of the family in the County of Dorset, was William Fauntleroy, son of William Fauntleroy (died 1607) and Mary Hord, his wife (Hutchins' " History and Antiquities of Dorset­shire," Vol. 2, p. 354). William Fauntleroy, husband of Mary Hord, was son of Henry Fauntleroy, of Hampshire, whose will was dated June 18, 1578, in which he names as Overseer " Cousin William Fauntleroy of Crondall," Hampshire, who was grandfather of Colonel Moore Fauntleroy of Virginia. The father of this Henry Faunt­leroy and the father of William Fauntleroy of Crondall were brothers (sons of Tristram Fauntleroy), as shown by the pedigree of this family in " Fragmenta Genealogica," Vol. VII, pp. 44, 47. Both these branches of the Fauntleroy family resided in the County of Hampshire until the main line of the family in the County of Dorset became ex­tinct, when William Fauntleroy, husband of Mary Hord, succeeded to the family estates in Dorsetshire. William Fauntleroy and his wife, Mary Hord, had two children, namely, William Fauntleroy and Mary Fauntleroy who married William Ridout. The names of their descendants are given in Hutchins' " History and Antiquities of Dor­set," Vol. 2, page 354. One of their male descendants was James Fauntleroy, who died 1695 in the Island of Barbadoes.
    Mary Hord, wife of William Fauntleroy, was a rela­tive (probably sister or aunt) of William Hord who sold the Manor of Lillington, 1619, as shown by the following records
    April 13, 1631, "William Fauntleroy next of kin to William Hourde of Folke, deceased" appointed administrator of the estate of William Hord (Dorset Administrations in "Somerset and Dorset Notes and Queries," Vol. 3, p. 169).
    This William Fauntleroy was son of William Faunt­leroy and Mary Hord, his wife, and died in 1675.
    In 1619, William Hord sold the Manor of Lifflington, and at the time of his death was a resident of Folke, an adjoining parish." Image.


Moore Fauntleroy the elder

1Robert H. Fauntleroy, Fauntleroy Family, The, Microfilm published: Washington, 1952, P 7, FHL 1318331 Item 3. "At the death of his mother in 1629 he inherited the property left to her by her foster father, Nicholas Moore."

2Robert H. Fauntleroy, Fauntleroy Family, The, P 10. "We do not know the exact date of birth of Col. Moore Fauntleroy, as it is not to be found in the Parish Register at Crondell with the record of his brothers and sisters. All that we can be sure of is that he was born between 1610 and 1617. He was the son of John Fauntleroy and Phoebe Wilkinson. It is evident from the record that he had an older brother named Moore, whether they were twins or not we cannot tell. The elder Moore inherited the property which was left by will to his mother, Phoebe Wilkinson, by her foster father, Nicholas Moore. The elder Moore is mentioned in his brother Henry's will in 1676, whereas Col. Moore Fauntleroy who came to Virginia had died in 1663."

2Rev. Arnold Harris Hord, Hord family of Virginia. A supplement to the Genealogy of the Hord Family., 1915. "John FauntIeroy. esq, who died 1698 without issue, gave his estate by will to Mr. George Cooper; but it was claimed, and the validity of the will contested by the heirs of Mary, daughter of William Fauntleroy, esq. who married William Ridout, and by the heirs of James, fifth son of William Fauntleroy, esq. who died in Barbadoes, 1695, and left, a son and two daughters. After several years contro­versy this suit was given up; but the estate was sold 1707 to John Conyers, esq. the trustee for Thomas viscount Weymouth, to whose heir it now belongs.
     Of the family of the Fauntleroys seems to have been William Faunderoy, of New College, Oxford; admitted D.D. 1506, and comissary or vicechancellor of that university, from 1506 to 1514. He was brother of Elizabeth abbess of Ambresbury, and probably rector of Lidlinch in this county from 1527 to 1537. One of the same name and degree was warden of Higham-Ferrers c. Northampton.
    Here was the ancient seat of the Fauntleroys, a pretty large, low, and very grotesque piece of build­ing, entirely of stone, and perhaps one of the most ancient houses in this county." Image.
