Note: The Will of Thomas Keene of Northumberland was dated November 22, 1652, and names wife Mary (Will 1662), Thomas, William, Matthew and daughter Susanna.
His son, William Keene, born March 10, 1642, died February 8, 1684; married Elizabeth, the daughter of John Rogers, Gent., and Ellin, his wife, of Northumberland County, in Virginia, on "Cypress Farm," at the head of Garner's Creek.
Near the site of the early Keene residence two heavy slabs are to be seen. On one is the following: "Here lyeth the body of William Keene, the eldest son of Thomas and Mary Keene, born in Kent, in Maryland, the 10th day of March, Anno Dom. 1642, who married Eliza, the daughter of John Rogers, Gent., and Eliza, his wife, of Northumberland County, in Virginia, by whom he had two sons and four daughters and dyed ye 8 day of Feb., 1684, in ye two and fortieth year of his age."

On "Cypress Farm" at the head of Garner’s creek, near the site of the early Keene residence, two heavy slabs are to be seen, one of them partly overgrown by a large persimmon tree. One of them has this inscription:
Here lyeth the body of William Keene, the eldest Son of Thomas and Mary Keene Born in Kent in Maryland the 10th day of march anno Dom. 1642, Who marryed Eliza, the Daughter of John Rogers Gent. and Ellin his Wife of Northumberland Co. in Virginia by Whome he had two Sons and four daughters
And dyed ye 8 day of Feb. 1684 in ye two and Fortieth year of his Age.
The other tomb, lying near by the above, shows lettering remarkably clear and distinct, as follows:
HERE LYETH THE BODY
OF THOMAS BANKS GENT. THE ONLY SON OF THOMAS BANKS
GENT AND DORATHY (sic!) HIS WIFE
WAS BORN AT WOODSTOCK WILTSHIRE ON ST. GILEIS
DAY. ANNO DOM, 1642 AND SERVED Seven Yeares an Apprentice to Mr. Wallistone Mercht in Southampton. And after came into Verginia, where he married three Wives, the last of which he tooke to Wife Eliza (1) the Relict of William Keene, dec’d, daughter of John Rogers Gent, and Ellin his Wife of Northumberland County in Verginia, Was marryed the 8 day of december 1687 and dyed the 20 of September. Anno Dom.
1697 In the 56 Year of his age as also these two Versers. As I in Sorrow for thee have been distrest.
If god Permit me Lye by the to rest.
(1) Mrs. Elizabeth Banks, after enduring two widowhoods, died in 1722 (will probated March 15, 1722). Her sons by Wm. Keene were William and John. Her daughter Hannah married Col. John Bushrod, of Bushfield, in Westmoreland, Elizabeth married ----- Lee. Another daughter married Samuel Samford, and the fourth daughter married John Woodbridge. Her father, Major John Rogers, was an early settler in Northumberland, and long served as one of the justices. A small creek tributary to hull’s creek is still known by the name of Rogers, the plantation and home of the early justice having been on its banks. It seems very probably that Elizabeth Keene was the wife of Charles Lee, youngest son of the immigrant Richard Lee.

     Gerard and Elizabeth had at least two sons, Adam & Gerard. The attribution of these children to them rests partly on elimination. We have seen Dr. William Banks, had no children and that Adam had but one son. Further the land on which Adam and his son lived must have been bought prior to 1721, since no deed in King George records for its purchase. Since Adam must have been barely grown then, and since this land seems to correspond with that purchased in 1674 by Adam Banks from William Heaberd, we posit that Gerard Banks had two sons, Adam the elder, who inherited his father's land, and Gerard. There is also a third son Richard Banks who died at age 23. Richard is buried at Green Banks, Stafford County, VA."1

[Editor's note: From a deed dtd 4 May 1764 I found that Margaret was born Margaret BRUCE, the daughter of Charles Bruce and Elizabeth Pannell. Elizabeth was the daughter of William Pannell. Elizabeth later married John Grant. Margaret's sisters were: Mary (wife of Thomas James), Frances (wife of Mr. Banks), Susannah (wife of Mr. Ficklin), and Elizabeth (wife of Mr. Bronough). Pretty good deed!]
     "For many years, there hung on the walls of " Green Bank," in Stafford county, the home of Mrs. Frances Bruce Banks, the daughter of James Bruce, the emigrant, the oil portrait of a remarkably handsome man. It was stated by the granddaughter of Mrs. Frances Banks, who lived for many years at " Green Bank," then owned by her father, George Banks, that this portrait, which had been there for nearly a century, had always been understood in the family to be that of Mrs. Frances Banks' father, James Bruce, the emigrant. This portrait has a curious history. The widow of George Banks removed to Mississippi in 1837, and took it with her. At her death, it passed to her daughter. From this daughter, it passed to Mrs. Wm. H. Richards, of Knoxville, Tenn., another descendant of Frances (Bruce) Banks, who now owns it. A copy is in the possession of Mr. Charles U. Williams, the well known lawyer of Richmond, Va. The portrait is a work of extraordinary merit, and was quite probably painted before James Bruce came to Virginia.
     "Frances Bruce, daughter of the emigrant, married Gerard Banks, Jr., clerk of Stafford county, who resided at " Green Bank," near Fredericksburg. The Banks family were among the earliest and most permanent settlers of the Northern Neck (see Fitzhugh Letters, Virginia Magazine of History; also the " Stuart, Banks, &c., families," Wm. & Mary Hist. Quarterly.)
     "The children of Gerard and Frances' (Bruce) Banks were (1) John, an officer in the South, under General Greene, died unmarried; (2) Henry, a lawyer and merchant of Richmond city, a part of the city once called Banktown was named after him; he removed to Kentucky; died unmarried; (3) Gerard, removed to Mississippi; (4) William Bruce, for twenty-five years attorney for the Commonwealth in Charlotte, Halifax, Mecklenburg, Pittsylvania, Henry, Franklin and Patrick counties, Va; (5) George, who lived at " Green Bank." His descendants removed to Mississippi. Of the daughters, one married Samuel Slaughter, another married a Spotswood, a third married Hening, compiler of the Virginia Statutes. (See " Stuart and Banks families, William and Mary Hist. Quarterly; also this Magazine.)
     "Charles Bruce, the son of the emigrant, was probably born sometime before 1740, as his eldest son James born in 1763. He was twice married: (1) to Diana Banks, of the " Green Bank " family; (2) to Frances, daughter of Colonel George Stubblefield, of the Revolutionary army. The second wife must have been much younger than her husband, as she survived to 1833, after nearly forty-one years of widowhood.
The children of Charles and Diana (Banks) Bruce were: James, b. March, 1763; Henry, b. December 4, 1764; Charles, b. September, 1768.
     "The children of Charles and Mary (Stubblefield) Bruce were: Thomas, b. February , 1773; William, b. November 7, 1774; Elizabeth, b. February 4, 1777. (Family Bible, " Berry Hill," Va.)
     "Frances Bruce's husband was Gerard Banks, Jr. It was her daughter who married Hening, the compiler of the Statutes, and it was her granddaughter, Mrs. Schermerhorn, who wrote the famous lines on old Blandford Church, so long attributed to Tyrone Power, the Irish actor. William Bruce Banks, her son, was educated at the College of William and Mary, and, during many years, served as the attorney for the Commonwealth in the Superior Court for the Halifax district, which embraced seven counties of the Southside.

In Gust. Skordas' "Early Immigrants to Maryland", 1912, "Robert Holt, immigrated 1646 with wife and 4 children" (2, fol, 229, 550)
Robert Holt was issued a land warrant to lay out 400 acres "in any place within this province southward of Patuxtent River". (Patents ABH.32) Edward (Edmund) Hudson was associated with Robert Holt and was living in the same household.
Edward defaulted on a bond in 1650 and the court allowed Robert Holt to "attach his estate" for the cost. (p. 135)
     "In the Maryland Archives continued (10-109/112): November 6, 1651: The St. Marys court heard depositions concerning domestic problems between Robert Holt and his wife, Dorothy Heywood Holt. Robert reported that Dorothy threatened to murder Him. A witness reported that he saw Dorothy and Edward Hudson "goe to bed together as if they were man and wife", with other witnesses stating the same thing. One witness stated that Dorothy "hoped her husband might rott limb from limbe" and that her "heart was soe hardened against him she would never darken his door again." She held resentment toward her son, Richard, stating that she hoped he would end his days on the gallows. As punishment, Edward Hudson was to be whipped and to live a least 30 miles from the Holts. Dorothy was to be whipped and live at least five miles from Robert, not with Edward Hudson.
     "In "Crime and Punishment in Early Maryland", by R. Semmes, p. 184. This book recounts the above. It states further: "After hearing all the evidence, the court found Dorothy and Edward Hudson guilty of adultery. Hudson was sentenced to receive thirty lashes, while Dorothy was to be given fifty stripes. In order to prevent Edward from having further adultery with Dorothy , he was to leave St. Marys. If he returned without the permission of the Governor, he would receive another whipping. Dorothy was told that she must live at least five miles away from her husband's house, and if in the future she soiled his reputation by loose living, she would be severely whipped. After this sentence was pronounced, the court reversed itself. The judge told them if they made a humble submission, acknowledged their offense, asked for pardon and promised amendment, then the Governor might be willing to remit the punishment which the court had ordered. Dorothy and Robert would be allowed to live together as man and wife if they came to an agreement

     "Robert mentioned his sons David and Richard in this deed, it cannot be read; however, a month previous he had given one half of the 100 acres called Randalls Point to David. He is the only child who remained in Maryland. A court-ordered inventory of the goods of Robert Holt was returned December 9, 1662. It showed substantial holdings in livestock, farm implements, tools, and household furniture. Except for his land patent of 1649, records of his landholdings have been lost in the destruction of St. Mary's County deed records. From all evidence, Robert existed and achieved some degree of success during his time in Maryland. of his four children, David died in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1678 or 79. Richard will be discussed later in this research. He died in Essex County, Virginia in 1693. Dorothy, Jr. received the bequest of land in Maryland but went with her mother to Virginia where in 1665 she bound herself to Henry Aubrey, to serve him for five years, to do household work but not "working the ground." She subsequently married and disappeared from record. Elizabeth also received land from her father in Maryland but was in Virginia in 1672 when Edward Hudson left her a cow. No further records have been found.

His 1st wife; her 1st husband.2 Dorothy Heywood and Robert Holt were divorced on 4 December 1654;
From "Early Colonial Settlers...":
     "On December 4, 1654, Robert and Dorothy divorced by clerk William Wilkinson, the clerk later denying that the divorce was granted.
On January 28, 1657, Robert was married to Christian Bonnefield by William Wilkinson, clerk.
On October 6, 1658, a jury heard charges of bigamy against Robert Holt, hearing that he married Christian Bonnefield "his owne wife Dorothy being then & yett living". Clerk Wilkinson testified as to the marriage but denied granting a divorce from his wife, Dorothy. The jury convicted him of bigamy, but Holt appealed and asked for a Protestant jury.

     "From: Bruce Jackson, County Archivist, Lancashire England. Ref:-A1/A-S.B
In Gust. Skordas' "Early Immigrants to Maryland", 1912, "Robert Holt, immigrated 1646 with wife and 4 children" (2, fol, 229, 550)
Robert Holt was issued a land warrant to lay out 400 acres "in any place within this province southward of Patuxtent River". (Patents ABH.32) Edward (Edmund) Hudson was associated with Robert Holt and was living in the same household.
Edward defaulted on a bond in 1650 and the court allowed Robert Holt to "attach his estate" for the cost. (p. 135)
In the Maryland Archives continued (10-109/112): November 6, 1651: The St. Marys court heard depositions concerning domestic problems between Robert Holt and his wife, Dorothy Heywood Holt. Robert reported that Dorothy threatened to murder Him. A witness reported that he saw Dorothy and Edward Hudson "goe to bed together as if they were man and wife", with other witnesses stating the same thing. One witness stated that Dorothy "hoped her husband might rott limb from limbe" and that her "heart was soe hardened against him she would never darken his door again." She held resentment toward her son, Richard, stating that she hoped he would end his days on the gallows. As punishment, Edward Hudson was to be whipped and to live a least 30 miles from the Holts. Dorothy was to be whipped and live at least five miles from Robert, not with Edward Hudson.
     "In "Crime and Punishment in Early Maryland", by R. Semmes, p. 184. This book recounts the above. It states further: "After hearing all the evidence, the court found Dorothy and Edward Hudson guilty of adultery. Hudson was sentenced to receive thirty lashes, while Dorothy was to be given fifty stripes. In order to prevent Edward from having further adultery with Dorothy , he was to leave St. Marys. If he returned without the permission of the Governor, he would receive another whipping. Dorothy was told that she must live at least five miles away from her husband's house, and if in the future she soiled his reputation by loose living, she would be severely whipped. After this sentence was pronounced, the court reversed itself. The judge told them if they made a humble submission, acknowledged their offense, asked for pardon and promised amendment, then the Governor might be willing to remit the punishment which the court had ordered. Dorothy and Robert would be allowed to live together as man and wife if they came to an agreement.

Robert mentioned his sons David and Richard in this deed, it cannot be read; however, a month previous he had given one half of the 100 acres called Randalls Point to David. He is the only child who remained in Maryland. A court-ordered inventory of the goods of Robert Holt was returned December 9, 1662. It showed substantial holdings in livestock, farm implements, tools, and household furniture. Except for his land patent of 1649, records of his landholdings have been lost in the destruction of St. Mary's County deed records. From all evidence, Robert existed and achieved some degree of success during his time in Maryland. of his four children, David died in St. Mary's County, Maryland in 1678 or 79. Richard will be discussed later in this research. He died in Essex County, Virginia in 1693. Dorothy, Jr. received the bequest of land in Maryland but went with her mother to Virginia where in 1665 she bound herself to Henry Aubrey, to serve him for five years, to do household work but not "working the ground." She subsequently married and disappeared from record. Elizabeth also received land from her father in Maryland but was in Virginia in 1672 when Edward Hudson left her a cow.
