ANNE CHARLTON, born about 1480. She married about 1500 RANDALL GROSVENOR, Esq., of Bellaport (in Muckleston), Shropshire, son of Randall Grosvenor, Esq., of Bellaport (in Mudkleston), Shropshire, by Margaret, daughter of Randall Mainwaring, of Caringham. He was born about 1482 (aged 40 in 1522).

VIII. Anne Charlton, born around 1480, married in 1500 Randall Grosvenor of Bellaport, Shropshira, born around 1480, died in 1359/60. The paper by Alice Maud Peel touching the Charltons of Apley, published in part two of the 1950 Transactions of the Shropshire Archaeological Society, contains several serious errors. It ignores the above cited Visitation and fails to prove marriages through contemporary record evidence. For example, it claims that Richard Charlton was succeeded by his brother William, called "Stout William," who had a daughter Cicely, married to Randall Grosvenor of Bellaport. However, we know from record evidence (inquisitions post mortem on the estate of this Randall Grosvenor's father which call the son's wife daughter of Richard Charlton and cite the 1500 indenture given by the latter at the marriage settlement of his daughter Anne), adduced by Mr. Jacobus at pages 9 and 10 of his Bulkeley Genealogy, that Randall Grosvenor s wife was indeed the daughter of Richard Charlton of Apley.

Capt. Henry LOTT [Parents] 1-2646 was born 2 in 1707 in of Newton, L.I., New York, United States. He died 3 on 21 Dec 1784 in Moreland, Bucks, Pennsylvania, United States. Henry married (MRIN:1408) Catherine KROESON-2258 after 25 Nov 1747.

Other marriages:
, Mercy

It is believed that Henry Lott, married a second time, a Catharine (Kroesen) Jones, widow, through the courtesy of Mr. Orville Corson, Middletown, Ohio, we give the following letter to him, from Mr. Frank K. Swain, Fonthill, Doylestown, Pa. : -

"you ask would it have been possible that Henry Lott's first wife was a Kroesen? I cannot answer this - Mercy is not a Krewson name. Ac­cording to your book Mercy died Nov. 25, 1747, and I found Benjamin Jones died Dec. ?, 1748.

“This left Henry Lott, widower and Catharine Kroeson Jones, widow, free to marry, which they did, because in a petition of the Jones heirs, in Feb. 26, 1785, speaking of their father's estate, say: 'And whereas the said Catherine Jones, widow of the Testator having again intermarried with a certain Henry Lott, afterwards died without making any last will and testament. ' etc.

“They were asking to have the farm disposed of and the money divided among the Jones children. This could not have been done before the death of Catharine Krewson Jones Lott. Several of her Jones children were already dead and I feel sure the petition was made directly after her death say about Jan. 1785, so as to settle this long drawn out estate (77 years) which she had the use of as long as she lived.

“If she married again she had the right to choose one of Benjamin Jones' farms as her own. As no mention is made of the 250 acres she received from her father Derrick, she must have chosen that tract and disposed of it soon after her marriage with Henry Lott, as her niece Elizabeth Kroeson and husband John Vanartsdalen owned it as early as 1756. Henry Lott was a witness to several Kroeson wills and deeds. If Catharine Jones Lott died say 1785, and Henry Lott died Dec. 21, 1784, the whole thing knits together. Why he did not mention her in his will I cannot see. She was rich herself and that may be the reason, or she could have died first of course.”

(Signed) Frank K. Swain

Capt. Henry Lott, was a Captain of “Associated Companies, Bucks County, 1756,” also served as Captain of the Fourth Associated Company, Northampton twp., Bucks county, Pa., in the Revolutionary War. His will reads as follows:- 1784. Dec. 1. (Just 20 days before his death, he made his will, proved Jan. 10, 1785, and recorded in the Will Book I:16, Norristown, Montgomery county, Pa.) His residence is given as Moorland (meaning Moreland). Five shillings were conveyed to each of the children of his son Peter and his daughter Mary. The remainder was divided equally among his other children: Stephen, Henry, Zepheniah, Leonard, and Letitia Carter. Daughter Letitia's share was to be held in trust, she to receive the interest and after her death her share was to be given to her daughter Prudy, wife of Daniel Courson. The Executors were: Zephaniah Lott, Stephen Lott, and Daniel Corsen.
