Nathaniel, bap. 6/8/1691: commissioned 6th. July 1721 into Colonel Kirke's Regiment (later the 2nd. Foot) as Ensign to Lt. Colonel John Arnot, and perhaps accompanied him when this officer was made Adjutant-General in Scotland in 1726. His commission was renewed in 1727. When he signed his will, 19/10/1733, he was an Ensign in Brigadier Edmund Fielding's Regiment of Invalides. He had left the army as a Lieutenant by 1740.

5) Francis Phillip, bapt.10/5/61 (St.Katherine Coleman):bapt.again in Florida, 15/1/96. Susan L'Engle says he was born in Vevey 25/4/1760 but his re-baptism entry describes him as a native of London. In 1779 he joined the 4th. Bn. 60th Foot as Ensign and was promoted Lieutenant 1/2/1782. He went on half-pay when the battalion was disbanded in 1784, briefly returned to the Regiment in 1786, then exchanged into the 9th.Foot as Lieutenant 3/5/1786.He fought through the War of Independence, later serving in Scotland and Ireland, and finally left the army in 1790 to take over active management of the Florida Estates from his ageing father.

i) Juana Maria Cross (b. New York) who was in the Guardianship of his father at the time;they had two children, Francis and Sophia.
ii) Marie Thereza la Maigre,a wealthy heiress; they had several children.
According to LAW Francois and Marie Fatio had three other children who died in infancy.
Career. His father had intended him for a career in the Law, for which he received an education In Geneva; but forming a distaste for this, he instead entered the Swiss Guards, which were then in the service of France, as a Lieutenant. He fought in the War of the Austrian Succession, at the end of which (1748) while he was serving in Italy, he met and married his wife, whom her parents had intended for a convent; they were married in Roquebilliere, near Nice, where he purchased (probably in 1754) an estate which he never relinquished and in 1792 passed on to his eldest son Louis. According to Susan L'Engle he remained there only two years and then returned to Switzerland, but c.1757 he removed his family to London at the suggestion of his brother Michael (who in fact returned to Switzerland soon afterwards).At least two other families of Fatios were living there at the same time. One source gives his address as French Ordinary Court. In 1771 he moved the entire surviving family to Florida, since 1763 a British Colony (it would return to the Spanish in 1783 and eventually joined the USA in 1812). An entire vessel was needed to transport their moveables to Florida, where he remained for the rest of his life and is considered one of the Founding Fathers of the State. On arrival he purchased (as a member of a syndicate, whose other members he later bought out) three plantations on the St. John's River of which the largest, the 10,000 acre tract called New Switzerland, became the family seat.He cultivated indigo, turpentine, oranges and sheep,and sent trading vessels to the Old World. During the War of Independence he was Deputy Commissary General for the English Army of the South,but was apparently unaffected when Britain had to surrender the Colony to Spain after losing the War, though this is the period when the three children - all adults - still living with him were re-baptised as Catholics. 'Fatio lived like a feudal baron and commanded the respect of all about him, it being said that his influence was little less than that of the governor. He died in 1811 and his body still rests in the earth at New Switzerland that he so dearly loved.' The fact remains, however, that he had asked to be buried next to his wife in the Catholic cemetery in St. Augustine; but the Church authorities refused to allow this as he was a Protestant. Portraits of him and his son are extant.

The Plantagenet Descent of John Hallowes.
EDWARD III, KING OF ENGLAND (1312-1377) married PHILLIPA OF HAINAULT (1309-1369) daughter of the Count of Hainault.
their fourth son
EDMUND OF LANGELEY, DUKE OF YORK (1341-1402) married ISABEL OF CASTILE (1355-1394) daughter of Pedro I, “
The Cruel”, King of Castile and Leon, and his mistress Maria de Padilla. Maria had Moorish blood and is said by some to be descended from the Prophet Mohammed. (Isabel's sister Constance became the second wife of John of Gaunt.)
their second son
RICHARD, EARL OF CAMBRIDGE (1375-1415) married LADY ANNE MORTIMER (b.1411) who descended from Lionel Duke of Clarence and was his first cousin twice removed. He was executed for plotting against Henry V just before the start of the Agincourt Campaign.
their only son
RICHARD,THIRD DUKE OF YORK (1412-1460) married LADY CECILY NEVILL, daughter of the Earl of Westmorland (this is the Hallowes family's nearest common ancestor with the House of Windsor). His sons were Edward IV, the Duke of Clarence and King Richard III.
their fourth child and elder daughter
ANNE OF EXETER (1439-1476) married after being divorced from the Earl of Exeter her first husband: SIR THOMAS ST. LEGER who was beheaded in 1483.
their only child and daughter
ANNE ST. LEGER (d.1526) married SIR GEORGE MANNERS 12TH. BARON RHOS (d.1513); both are buried in St. George's Chapel Windsor.
their eldest son
THOMAS MANNERS FIRST EARL OF RUTLAND (d.1543) married ELEANOR PASTON (d.1551), daughter of SIR WILLIAM PASTON of Paston,Norfolk.
their second son
SIR JOHN MANNERS (d.1611) married DOROTHY VERNON of Haddon: after, according to the stories, a romantic elopement.
SIR GEORGE MANNERS (d.1623) married GRACE PIERREPONT, second daughter of SIR HENRY PIERREPONT of Holme Pierrepont.
JOHN MANNERS EIGHTH EARL OF RUTLAND married The Hon. FRANCES MONTAGU (d.1671), second Daughter of EDWARD, 1st.LORD MONTAGU OF BROUGHTON.

their fifth son
COLONEL JOHN HALLOWES (1729-1817) married MARTHA LOUISA FATIO (1763-1846) daughter of FRANCIS FATIO of St. Augustine, Florida.
A sixth-generation descendant of John Hallowes might typically have been born c. 1975. Such a descendant would therefore be in the nineteenth generation of descent from King Edward III. He or she is also sixteenth in descent from Richard, 3rd. Duke of York, from whom Queen Elizabeth II is eighteenth. Their relationship to The Queen is therefore that of fifteenth cousin, twice removed.
EDWARD III was in the following generations of descent:
2nd. from Philip IV (The Fair) of France:
4th. from St. Louis IX:
8th. from William The Conqueror:
10th. from Hugh Capet, first King of France.
15th. from Alfred The Great, King of Wessex.
18th. from Charlemagne, First of the Holy Roman Emperors; and hence 20th. from his grandfather Charles Martel who defeated the Saracens at the Battle of Tours, 732 AD.
31st. from Cerdic, first King of the West Saxons after the Romans left, and ancestor of all the other Anglo-Saxon Royal Houses.
And, according to Anglo-S axon bards and myth-tellers:
40th. from Woden, King of the Gods.
A major on-line database delineating the entire descent of William the Conqueror and his Queen, Matilda of Flanders, is being compiled by Alan Freer, of Byfleet, Surrey..

Other Hallowes Families.
The Hallows Family of Youlgreave.
Humphrey Hallowes or Hallows, son of Richard Hallowes from whom John Hallowes was in the sixth generation of descent, remained in Youlgreave after his brother Thomas moved to Derby and there married Clemens Wate or Coate, 14th. October l571. They had at least five children. This family continues to the present day, using the "Hallows" spelling of the name, and is being actively researched by, among others, Keith Hallows, e-mail email@example.com and Jean Durbin,
The Rochdale Family.
ed Hallowes Family in southern Lancashire, particularly in the Rochdale area. This family, most of whose members also use the "Hallows" form of the surname, is being researched by Maxine Taylor; messages for her can be left with Ancestry.co.uk - Account Nr. ST176: or through the Compiler.
The Benington Family.
This was the family of Daniel Hallowes or Hallows, son of Nathaniel Hallowes (1582-1661) M.P. for Derby in the Long nd Short Pariaments, brother to Susanna, Thomas, and Samuel.
who was baptised at St. Werbergh's, Derby, 25/09/1636. He and his descendants seem always to have used the shorter form of their surname.
He married in Benington, Herts. on 25 Feb 1663 Anna (1646-?) the daughter of the Rev Nathaniel Dod (1600-1682), Rector of St Peter's, Benington.
Their children Their children were Nathaniel(1668-1668), Daniel (1671-1740) and Anna (1671-?), all baptised in Benington, Herts.
His second son Daniel was for forty years the rector of All Hallows & St John, Hertford, from 1701 until his death.
He married on 24 July 1702 in Newnham, Herts, Ann Barly (1685-1777) the daughter of one Robert Barly.
They had at least seven children, of whom John Hallows (?-1757) took an apprenticeship in London and there met and married clandestinely in 1739 (?) one Letitia Sell (1715-1781) of Saffron Walden.
John and Letitia Hallows lived in Shoreditch, where their four (?) children, among them Elizabeth Hallows (?-1814) were born.
Elizabeth married Robert Blackman (1735-1776) on 7 Aug 1762 at St Leonard's, Shoreditch. Robert Blackman was a native of Henley-on-Thames, from a long line of brewers and pub-owners in that town.
There were at least ten children of this marriage, including one Hallows Blackman (1776-?). Elizabeth Blackman (nee Hallows) died in Linton, Cambs., where she was probably living with her son John Blackman (1770-1834),
whose children were born there and where he died. One of the children is Hallows William Blackman (1801=?)
This family is being researched by Andrew Cumine (E-mail:
firstname.lastname@example.org). whose direct ancestor from the London line is Sarah Blackman (1774-1809), a daughter of Robert Blackman of Henley and Elizabeth Hallows.
The Bakewell Family.
Three generations of a Hallowes family from Bakewell, Derbyshire, have been traced during the late 19th. and 20th. Centuries. This family seems to be very small.
Research into these families is continuing. Two lines of descent in the female line from Hallowes ancestors must be mentioned:
1) John Hallowes of Westmoreland County, Virginia.
He was born in 1615, the son of Henry and Elizabeth Hallowes of Rochdale, and went out to America as an indentured servant in 1634. Having served out his time by 1638, he went on to become very wealthy and a leading citizen of Westmoreland County; he was also a Major in the local militia. He died in 1657; descendants of his daughter Restitute (Manley), his only child to survive him, are still living in the United States.

2) Anne Hallowes of St. Werbergh's Parish, Derby.
In 1628 she married William Taberer, and their son Thomas, born c. 1630, went out to Virginia. Their eleventh-generation descendant is Mrs. Betty Clay, e-mail
