EDWARD STEPHENS, Esq., lord of the manor of Eastington, acquired the manors of Eastington and Alkerton, co. Gloucester,1 1573. The estate of Eastington had been held during the Middle Ages by the De Molends and the De Balurns, and it is recorded that Henry de Newmarch had it in succession to Thurston Fitz Rolf. It passed into possession of the celebrated Edward de Stafford, Duke of Buckingham, and his wife the granddaughter of Prince George Plantaganet, Duke of Clarence, niece of Edward IV, and Richard III; and through Lord Stafford to Edward Stephens in the fifteenth year of the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Edward Stephens erected a manor house there of the Elizabethan style.2 Of this house only a rude drawing of a portion of the front remains, the building having been destroyed by fire in 1778, at which time perished the oldest archives of this family, which had been there deposited. Eastington manor includes the village of that name. The parish church has been restored in modern times.1 In the churchyard Whitefield when curate did his first open-air preaching, the sacred edifice being incapable of holding his hearers. The most notable feature of the interior of the church is the altar tomb2 with recumbent effigies of Edward Stephens, and his wife Joan, and showing sculptured the family coat of arms. Edward Stephens in 1557 built Chavenage Hall in his manor of Horsley, near Tetbury, Gloucestershire not far distant from Eastington.3 The date and his initials and those of his wife are carved over the entrance doorway. The house, whose front is in the form of the letter E in honor of Queen Elizabeth, stretches back in a series of buildings partly erected since his time. A demi eagle, the crest of the family, forms a finial over the porch, and over one of the west gables. In the great hall, at the left of the entrance, is paneling of the Elizabethan period. The windows have coats of arms in the stained glass, and the walls were in his day hung with armor. A chimney piece shows carvings of the Stephens arms; and these arms and the arms of Fowler are elsewhere displayed in the house. The covered ceiling of the minstrel gallery is finely paneled. The original dining room has paneling of the date 1627. In the bed rooms is some good tapestry. The bed room used by Sir Philip Sidney has another ancient chimney piece. The chapel was built of materials from the ruins of Horsley Priory near by. Edward Stephens married Joan, daughter of Richard Fowler, Gent., of Stonehouse, co. Gloucester, who died August 5, 1587. His will dated August 13, was proved November 27, 1587, by his brother-in-law, William Fowler, Gent., and his son Richard. He died October 22, 1587, aged sixty-four, and was buried in Eastington church, where his tomb, already referred to, exists to this day, in fair preservation.

Lord Delaware was the first governor of colonial Virginia. He arrived there
in 1610 to find Jamestown on the verge of extinction as a result of the harsh
winter--the "starving time" of 1610-11. He revived the settlement before
returning (1618) to England. The Delaware River and State of Delaware take
their names from him.

14992. Theodore Argrippa (DABNEY) D'AUBIGNE was born on 8 Feb 1550/1551 in Pons, Saintogne, France . He died on 29 Apr 1630 in Geneva, Switzerland. He married Suzanne LEZAY. [Parents]

Theodore Agrippa d'Aubigne, Seigneur de Lander et la Chaillon, was a fearless Huguenot leader in France, 1550-1630. He was a soldier under Conde', and warlord of Henry of Navarre. He refused to recant his faith and fled to Geneva, where he spent the remainder of his life writing his Historie Universell depuis 1550 jus' qua l'an 1601. His line of descent come from Geoffrey, sire d'Aubigne, Chevalier, Lord of Aubigne, near Saumur, who lived during the reign of Louis VII (1137-1180). The name still flourishes in France. Theodore Agrippa was the grandfather of Madame de Maintenon, pious favorite and wife of Louis XIV of France. Sources: "Dabney's of Virginia" by W.H. Dabney; Descendents of John d'Aubigne, prior 1670; Genealogy of Virginia Families, Vol II, Genealogy Pub. Balt. 1981 In France the old Huguenot name and family of d'Aubigne still lives. They form a small colony in their native land, never having increased much. All the branches of this family in America claim a common ancestry. They have the same armorial bearings - an elephant's head, three footless martins, and the fleur de lis of France - the same traditions, and the same motto, which they hold in three languages. In France they have the motto in the Latin, "Fidelis et Gratus" One of the American branches has it in French, "Fidele et Reconnaissant" while most of the name in the United States have it in English, "Faithful and Grateful." The name has changed many times since the American branch left France, 200 years ago. It is written in different ways, as Daubeny; Daubney; Bigny; D'audbinay; Dabnee; and Dabney. The traditions all say that they descended from that fearless Huguenot leader, Agrippa d'Aubigne, who flourished from 1550-1630. Agrippa was not the first of his name known at the French court. According to tradition in the family, a d'Aubigne was at the court of Louis XII. He commanded a company of Swiss guards. Agrippa d'Aubigne wrote a very interesting history of the fearless times in which he lived - one of the best that has come down to us. The name of d'Aubigne can be found among the rolls of Battle Abbey, amidst the list of knights who fell at Hastings. Some survived the conquest and are mentioned in Hume's History as champions of Magna Carta. A branch of the d'Aubigne family left France, after the revocation of the Edict of Nantes, by King Louis XIV, on October 28, 1685, because they were no longer allowed to worship God with freedom of conscience. They first went to Wales between 1715 and 1717 and sailed for America.

14993. Suzanne LEZAY was born about 1550 in France. She died in 1596.
