Anne (Hutchinson) Dyer

Royal and Noble Lines of Anne (Hutchinson) Dyer, born 1643


Anne (Hutchinson) Dyer (1643-1716) was the 7th g-grandmother of my father, Tor Martin Hylbom (1939-2009) and a grandaughter of the famous Anne (Marbury) Hutchinson (my 10th g-grandmother) who was banished from Boston for her active opposition to the Puritan clergy and ultimately was murdered in an Indian massacre. Anne (Hutchinson) Dyer married Samuel Dyer, son of William Dyer and Mary (Barrett) Dyer (my 9th g-grandmother), the Quaker martyr who was hanged in Boston in 1660.


Samuel died early, however, and on 22 Sep 1679, at the age of thirty-four, Anne married a second time to Daniel Vernon and she was not heard from again.  She was buried in Newport, Rhode Island with her second husband.  While otherwise not historically notable, Anne is unique in that she is the convergence of four authenticated royal ancestral lines for Tor Martin Hylbom plus one noble line.  One royal line comes from Edward I, King of England (to Sir Edward Raleigh), another from John, King of England (to Anne Chamberlayne) another from Henry I, King of England (to John Booth and Anne Thimbleby) and the last from Henry II, King of England (to William Marbury).  The noble line is from Sir William de Huntingfield, one of the Magna Charta Sureties (to Anne Chamberlayne).


The next section will present each of these royal and noble lines.  They have been researched and authenticated by two of the most respected genealogists in America, Gary Boyd Roberts and Frederick Lewis Weis:


Royal Line One — (Passes through Sir Edward Raleigh)

From: Gary Boyd Roberts[1], The Royal Descents of 500 Immigrants to the American Colonies or the United States (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Co., originally published 1993; 2nd and 3rd printings, with addenda 2001–2002).

Royal Line Two — (Passes through Anne Chamberlayne)

The following is Bridget Raleigh’s royal descent through her mother Anne Chamberlayne. From: Frederick L. Weis (with additions and corrections by Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr., assisted by David Faris).  Ancestral Roots of Certain American Colonists Who came to America before 1700: Lineages from Alfred the Great, Charlemagne, Malcolm of Scotland, Robert the Strong, and Some of Their Descendants  (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Company) 7th edition, 1992.

(1) John, King of England, (1199-1216) married a daughter of the Earl of Warenne & (perhaps) Hamelin Plantagenet. [King John’s ancestry continues back through several Kings of England to Cerdic, King of the West Saxons, 519-534, where it ends. (2) Richard Fitz Roy, natural son of King John married Rohese (?-1264/5), daughter of Fulbert of Dover. (3) Lorette de Dover married Sir William Marmon. (4) Sir John Marmion married Isabel.

(9) Robert de Umfreville, 2nd Earl of Angus married Lucy de Kyme. (10) Elizabeth de Umfreville married Gilbert de Boroughdon. (11) Eleanor de Boroughdon, Baroness Kyme married Henry Talboys.


[The line now splits & re-joins when John Booth marries Anne Thimbleby because the same line was inherited by John from his father William as it was by Anne from her father Richard. She is also a generation younger than John.]


(12a) Walter Talboys (1352-1418), Sheriff of Lincoln & Baron Kyme married Margaret ? (13a) Sir John Talboys married Agnes Cokefield. (14a) John Talboys married Katherine Gibthorpe. (15a) Margaret Talboys married John Ayscough. (16a) Elizabeth Ayscough married William Booth. (17a) John Booth married (16b) Anne Thimbleby.


(12b) Joan Talboys married Andrew Luttrell, Baron Luttrell. (13b) Hawise Luttrell, Baroness Luttrell married Sir Godfrey Hilton. (14b) Godfrey Hilton, Baron Luttrell married Margery [Willoughby]. (15b) Elizabeth Hilton married Richard Thimbleby

The above line is corroborated in Frederick L. Weis (cited above).


Royal Line Four — (Passes through Sir Thomas Blount)

From: From: Gary Boyd Roberts (cited above).  (Note: Generations 1 thru 7 were developed by Frederick L. Weis (cited above).  Roberts continued the line through generations 8 thru 15.

(1) Henry II, King of England (1154-1189) married Eleanor of Aquitaine (1123-1204). (2) (illegitimate by Ida, later wife of Roger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk ) [see Note below] William Longespee, Earl of Salisbury (ca 1176- 1226) married Ela, Countess of Salisbury. (3) Stephen Longespee married Emmeline de Riddleford. (4) Ela Longespee married Sir Roger la Zouche. (5) Alan la Zouche, 1st Baron Zouche of Ashby married Eleanor de Segrave.

(9) Sir Nicholas Gresley married Thomasine Wasteneys. (10) Sir Thomas Gresley married Margaret Walsh. (11) Margaret Gresley married Sir Thomas Blount. (12) Sir Thomas Blount married Agnes Hawley. (13) Anne Blount married William Marbury. (14) Robert Marbury married Katherine Williamson. (15) William Marbury married Agnes Lenton. (16) Francis Marbury married Bridget Dryden, parents of noted Anne (Marbury) Hutchinson of Rhode Island. [Note: Line 2 above is the exact text of the genealogist. It is a bit confusing to read but what it means is that Ida [a countess] was of the first generation and was the actual mother of William Longespee, not Eleanor of Aquitaine who was King Henry’s legal wife.]


Noble Line One — (Passes through Anne Chamberlayne)

From: Frederick L. Weis (with additions and corrections by Walter Lee Sheppard, Jr., assisted by David Faris).  The Magna Charta Sureties, 1215  (Baltimore, Maryland: Genealogical Publishing Company) 1997.

(1) Roger de Huntingfield, (?-1204) married Alice de Senlis; (2) Sir William de Huntingfield, (abt.1165-bef.1220/21), Magna Carta Surety, 1215 married Isabel Fitz-Roger; (3) Sir Roger de Huntingfield, (?-bef.1258) married Joan de Hobrugg; (4) Sir William de Huntingfield, (1237-bef.1290) married Emma de Grey; (5) Sir Roger de Huntingfield, (?-bef.1302) married (1) Joyce d’Engaine or [prob.] (2) Joan de Greinville; (6) Joan de Huntingfield married Sir Richard Basset (abt.1273-bef.1315); (7) Ralph Basset (1300-1341) married Joan of Winterbourne, Gloucestershire; (8) Alianore Basset married Sir John Knyvet, Chief Justice of the Kings Bench, Lord Chancellor of England.John Knyvet, Esq.

Note: At the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215, twenty-five men, representing the barons, signed as sureties of the baronial performance, in effect pledging the barons to fulfill their obligations to the Crown in accordance with the terms of the Great Charter. Of these twenty- five sureties only seventeen have identified descendants. Each of the seventeen is fully traced in the celebrated work Magna Charta Sureties by Frederick Lewis Weis (cited above). Their work traces the connections of the sureties descendants, line by line and generation by generation, to approximately 160 American colonists.


And here we are.  296 years after the birth of Anne (Hutchinson) Dyer we find Tor Martin Hylbom (1939-2009), who would never have walked this earth were it not for King Henry II’s little tryst with Countess Ida in 1151 (or thereabouts)!
