RICHARD TAYLOR JR.
Located Trinidad and Tobago Registry. In search of Richard who died on the island.

So we must begin a

BADGER, BANKS, BJARNASON, DOWD, GREEN, LAPHAM, MERRYMAN, NOBLE, PRATT, RATHBUN, SAYER, and WATT

The purpose of this page to to hold "research" regarding the Taylor family. Isabella Slimmons [seen Slemen in census] married William and a source.
It is the process of Roy doing a genealogy search trying to go beyond current family members.
Following gets boring so feel free to pass onto more exotic finds within christopherson.net. There is no "Update Date" which is on many other pages at this site.
Rather, all of the following text will be revised on-the-fly or added to at any time.

KNOWN FACTS
Richard Taylor, JohnTaylor's father is the last known family member [see update] above Caroline 'Taylor' Christopherson.
Richard was born 02 May 1787, Bristol England and was raised in Bristol, England, and in Barbados. [Birthdate based on Hearn story of Bowman Leslie]
[Update: George Taylor, Richard's father according to Mary's research, no citations or sources on George]
Richard was NOT born in Bristol, Massachusetts, USA. He was born in Bristol England.
Residence: West Bromwich, Staffordshire, England in 1861 [1]. Have not found multiple sources to verify this.
Death: Kingston, , Ontario, Canada.
The Taylor name shows on four Barbados plantations "prior" to Richards birth. Being fairly common, possible relatives or distant cousins, real distant.
Two are near bridgetown, and two in the North. See maps 3/4 way done this page.
More details about Richard's sons are here, John Taylor , and William Stewart Taylor .

Roy went through family tree in the east coast and to President Taylor, who to this date is NOT related. Roy believes the family was in England, then Barbadoes, Canada - New Iceland,
then Michigan and Milwakee.
Not Virgina, where most original settlers of Barbados left for Virginia Colony.

Marriage to Eliza Mehitabel Jones. According to Mary, Richard Taylor married Eliza or Elizabeth whose father was Jones, and mother was a Leslie.
[12/2013 - Her name was Eliza Mehitabel Jones, never Elizabeth]

NOTES FOR: Elizabeth;
This site

Listed Richard married to a Jane Jones which Roy believes is wrong.

Mary Hearn
P.O. Box 306
Clinton, ON N0M 1L0
Canada

William Hearn was born in London England in 1830. He emigrated to Canada in the 1850's. According to his wedding certificate, he was married
in 1859 in Kingston Upper Canada to Jane Taylor who was born in the Barbados in 1828. She was the daughter of Richard Taylor and
Elizabeth Mehetabel Jones, who raised their family in the Barbados and emigrated to Kingston, Upper Canada in the 1840's
From the 1861 and 71 Census Jane and William lived in Ottawa where William was a chemist.
We are looking for information about William's parents, William and Ann Hearn, who lived in London England in 1859

Mary Hearn, if you are out there, please email Roy.

for example: John and Elizabeth Taylor’s household in the village of Gimli included their teenage nieces Caroline (Carrie), Jane, and Susannah (Susie). The girls’ father, William Stewart Taylor, along with their stepmother (his second wife,) and three half siblings, settled on a homestead called “Foresthome” south of Gimli." [Roy doubts John Taylor lived in Gilmi. They lived by Red River southwest of the lake [see Husavik page].

Roy found this off of keywords in this document:
Humble Petition of John Taylor
Interesting
http://hri.shef.ac.uk/san/pl/SM/PS/LMSMPS50510/LMSMPS505100101.jpg
Roy just read this and made out about 65% of the words. One part mentions a poor mother, another that he paid a sum of money and signed papers for discharge
as a SOLDIER. To Roy´s knowledge, John Taylor never was in the military. Roy believes this is NOT our John Taylor. As a past Calligrapher, albeit, not the best,
he does admire the penmanship of this Petition.

16 acre plantation called Enmore...Hmm, wonder if the same. During the Great Hurricane, it is said the Taylor Plantation was leveled and the family left.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enmore,_Somerset

UPDATE: June 29, 2012:
Roy believes the above document, “The Humble Petition of John Taylor of the Island of Barbados, to the Secretary of State for these Colonies,” is NOT submitted by our John Taylor here.
Reason 1.
A. It is a fact that there were Taylors on the Island of Barbados prior to this period. Read Roy's Taylor and Barbados.
B. Source: Sources [ The attached list of persons connected with Barbados in the West Indies

Hmm, Our Richard was born in 1787. [Deleted link to a Board Game on a Fictitous character 'Admiral Taylor"]

Here we have a Vice-Admiral Taylor. Could he be related?


HC Deb 28 March 1938 vol 333 c1628
54. Vice-Admiral Taylor 

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what is the position of a married officer who has exercised his option to draw marriage allowance and children's allowance afloat if he receives a shore appointment where service quarters are provided for him?

Colonel Llewellin 

If employed on shore in an appointment in which for service reasons he cannot live with his family an officer will continue to receive marriage and children's allowances if quarters are provided for him. If provided with quarters in which he can live with his family he will receive children's allowance only, but if married and childless he will doubtless exercise his option of serving under present conditions until his next promotion. It may make the position clear if I add that the rules for allocation of quarters are being revised so that single quarters will not be allocated to a married officer unless:—(a) his presence is required for service reasons, or (b) his appointment is temporary, or (c) he wishes for single quarters and some are vacant.

Vice-Admiral Taylor 

While thanking my hon. and gallant Friend for that answer, will he tell me whether I am right in assuming that married officers receive marriage allowance for the simple and sole reason that they are married, and if that be so, why is it that they do not receive such marriage allowance when they are on half-pay?

Colonel Llewellin 

That is quite a different question from the one on the Order Paper.

Vice-Admiral Taylor 

If I put that specific question on the Order Paper, will my hon. and gallant Friend give me a reply?

While there are mentions in the family lore that Richard Taylor was an Officer, none suggest Admiral. This excerpt does mention a son, an event and a lost arm, no references to our Taylor. NO RELATIONSHIP to our knowledge!

Cousin Bruce passed along some links to research
*The Bruce* - prove link to Norfolks and you've probably proven the link to him, but there is a catch; timing of the crossing of lines. These 'nobles' are known for redacted - marrying cousins].
The Norfolks - aka The Howards, their proper family name (Norfolk being a dukedom, not a proper name) intermarried with the Fitzalans back in the 1700's. SO, they are now known as Fitzalan-Howard, as they were in the early 1800's when our kin so alledgedly got the boot from their .. maw. The precise nature of their alinement still needs to be ascertained, but here are some sources:
       http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FitzAlan_(surname
       <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FitzAlan_%28surname
       <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FitzAlan_%28surname
       <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FitzAlan_%28surname Excerpt: "The family originated in Brittany
       <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany>, in France, and shares common ancestry with the Scottish Stewarts
       <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/House_of_Stuart> as descendants of the eponymous Alan fitz Flaad
       <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alan_fitz_Flaad> grandson of the Seneschal of the Bishop of Dol
       <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bishop_of_Dol

It depends at what point the link began. Bruce lived in the early 1300's and his line subsequently mingled with the Fitzalan. The Dukes began having the surname
"Fitzalan-Howard" applied somewhere around 1815 to 1860, though there may have been kinship earlier.
       http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duke_of_Norfolk

JUNE 24-25, 2012- Duke of Norfolk
Roy found a quote from an old newsclipping of an interview of John Taylor by his daughter Susan. Now who would no better about her
EXCERPT from here. ..." Note how Kommi mentions a Mother-In-Law
"...Richard´s mother-in-law was of noble birth, belonging to the Catholic family of the Duke of Norfolk..."
While Roy's family notes state this it is Richard's wife, not Mother-In-Law, it does reaffirm the families handed down stories.
Roy has been searching for confirmation on this for years! Now we just need a name....}

Roy is moving the Hearn Bio to it's own page here...pending
Notes on this document state
Commission officer.
M.H.S., also state Richard Taylor was a "the son of a commissariat officer of the British government" Source. This is not mentioned ANYWHERE else. Their source is "The Pioneers and Early Citizens of Manitoba", They could be wrong.
On pg 236 same book, mentions a Taylor, James Wickes, 1819-1893 (not related), in 1871 sucessful in preventing a Fenian raid on Manitoba, ontained bonding regulations, facilitating movements of immigrants of Manitoba. Later, 1885, he recommended American patrol Canadian-American boundry (not border) preventing aid to reach insurgents under Louis Riel.
John Slimmons/Sleaman is not listed. Page 238 has paragraph on John Taylor. M.H.S. page is a word for word copy of the book. The Manitoba Library Association formed a commietee to select "a comprehensive source of names of early pioneers and early citizens of MB" about 1964, with outlines prepared by Mr. Hartwell Bowsfild, former Archivist, Mr. John Bovey, Archivist, Archivist, and Mr. Barry Hyman, Assistant Archivist.
UPDATE: The Hearn Family Story states that the father of Isabella was William Slimmons [Roy now belives it to be Slemins, if Dr. Percival Hearn's birth cert. is correct.]

Commissioned officers [in current times, not 1700 or 1800 in England]
Because a "commission" is a designation by Congress on the advice of the President, commissioned officers comprise the highest ranks in the military. These positions carry supervisory, managerial, and administrative responsibilities. Commissioned officers outrank all enlisted personnel and warrant officers. Enlisted personnel and warrant officers must salute all commissioned officers, and commissioned officers must salute superior commissioned officers.
Possible Richard was an Officer, not just some supplies clerk. From what little Roy knows, to obtain a high position in the Royal Navy, required a great deal of serving, and going up the ranks. Any battles could elevate one quicker as opposed to peacetime.

Roy moved the Leslie Bowman Story to it's own page. See above.

When he took his ducal seat in the Lords at the age of 59, he did so in the robes worn by his ancestor, the 12th duke, the first Catholic peer after emancipation in 1829. He was briefly headlined as "the reluctant duke who cleans his own shoes".

Based on knowledge from Bruce Costello, might be possible this part of the family of the Duke should be looked at. Elizabeth Stuart, 2nd Countess of Moray. Notice the use of two names as middel names for Richard and Elizabeth's children...Stuart, Henrietta. We now know "...Richard´s mother-in-law was of noble birth, belonging to the Catholic family of the Duke of Norfolk..."

Elizabeth Jones, Lady Kildare. Strike this from future searches, No children

Looking up Richard Taylor and marriage, find this
Richard TAYLOR. Parents: James TAYLOR and Mary. Spouse: Elizabeth. Richard TAYLOR and Elizabeth were married in 1807.

James TAYLOR was born about 1770. Spouse: Mary. Children were: James TAYLOR, Daniel TAYLOR, Richard TAYLOR.

If true the following would suggest there was another John Taylor almost 100 years before ours.
"1735 -Robert Henderson of St. Giles, Cripplegate, London, age 22, indentured July 15 1735 for 4 years, to John Taylor of Barbados.
Source "570 SECOND PERIOD OF QUAKERISM chap. John Taylor, of Barbados, a man of energy, settled in York as a sugar-refiner in 1676 ; and at the end of the following year the Quarterly Meeting decided to raise a stock for prisoners " whereby they might be employed in sorhe labour to their subsistence ; and this will be a refreshment to them and a good savour to Truth." ^ A sum of £160 was collected throughout the county and placed in the charge of Taylor and two other Friends"
There were a lot of Taylors on Barbados and this fellow would not have been in Texas in 1836.

Again as evidence that this Captain is not our John, this story mentions "John McGaffey's Gold", the year 1836, An Englishman, Captain John Taylor, had sailed the brig 'Elizabeth,' laden with slaves purchased in Barbados. NOTE it states Purchased in Barbados. Unless incorrect, John would of already owned them, not puchased in Barbados.

Ironically, here is a small figure of a Captain John Taylor based on 1805 one here.

Here we have another Captain John Taylor, except he was about 100 years earlier most likely staying in Panama. http://www.vleonica.com/j_taylor.htm Lots of Pirates listed.

As seen on the Hearn RnD page, we now know that Richards wife Eliza (Elizabeth) was related to the Leslie family of Barbados.

July 26, 2012 Taylor Gravesite
MAJOR BREAK-THROUGH!!!
A HIT!!! hit
Ms. Cadue with Cataraqui Cemetery, A National Historic Site of Canada, 927 Purdy's Mill Road, Kingston, ON, K7M 3N1
Website: www.cataraquicemetery.ca
was kind enough to spend time and CONFIRM the burial locations of Richard and Elizabeth Mehetabel JONES Taylor!
Roy was on a home vacation and found William Rouse Hearn, which started the ball rolling when Mr. McGillivray confirmed Roy had the right William. Roy really wanted to connect to both William 'Bill' and his wife, Mary.
Vern Austman emailed 6 pages of The Hearn Family Story to Roy which had this information from Mr. and Mrs. Stranks. Now we have so much more. Roy has taken out the slash separations to simulate the grave markers. The new facts are fantastic!

Email from Ms. Cadue on July 26, 2012 at 11:49 AM
"... Please find attached 2 photos of the monuments for Richard & Elizabeth Taylor. The monuments are lying flat under some trees and it was a sunny day when the photos were taken, thus the funny shadows. The inscription is hard to see completely but the monuments and markers in Cataraqui Cemetery were transcribed years ago so the transcription record reads as follows: " (see below)

There is not a marker or monument marking Isabella's gravesite unfortunately. I know this could have helped clarify the spelling of her maiden name.
I checked out the Taylor RnD page with the update and need to correct your map of Cataraqui Cemetery showing the area where they are buried. I have attached a pdf file of our map with the gravesite marked with a black-outlined red circle.

More details below. Many thanks to Alison for all her help!

The term "Cataraqui", from the original native name for Kingston, today refers to an area around the intersection of Princess Street and Sydenham Road where a village that later took the name was located. Cataraqui is also the name of a municipal electoral district. Source Origins, Settlements, Growth
"...The inscription is hard to see completely but the monuments and markers in Cataraqui Cemetery

Sacred
to the memory of
Richard Taylor
born in Bristol, England
8th May 1786
Served in the Commissariat
Department at Barbados W.I. [West Indies]
for nearly 35 years.
Died at Kingston C.W.
1 May 1859
Aged 73 years.
Also of his wife
Elizth [Elizabeth or Eliza] Mehetabel [Jones]
who was born Barbados
31 Mar 1797
was the beloved mother of a large family of sons
and daughters.
Died near Kingston C.W.
on her 63rd birthday.
They were united for 52 years and
after life's pilgrimage they rest
together according to their desire
until the Lord shall bid them rise.

The smaller stone for the babies clearly reads:
Little Martha and Richard's grave 1863


"Cemetery records state that Richard died 1 May 1859 in Kingston of Old Age. He was born in England and was married at the time of his death at age 73. Minister was Rev. R.V. Rogers (Anglican denomination.)
Elizabeth M. Taylor died 3 Apr 1860 (the monument states she died on her 63rd birthday which would put her
death date at 31 Mar 1860, perhaps the date from the records is her burial date as there is no burial date noted. No cause of death noted either.) She was born in Barbados, W.I. [West Indies] and died in Ernestown Township, (this is just west of Kingston.)

The children: Martha Taylor was born and died in Kingston at age 5 of Scarlet Fever on 6 Mar 1863 and Richard Taylor was born and died in Kingston, also at age 5 on 6 July 1863, no cause of death noted.

Also buried in this lot but not memorialized is:
Isabella Taylor, born in N.Y. State, died in Kingston on 12 Jun 1865 at age 30 of Consumption. She was married.

The plot is known as Lot 1 in Section C (now known as Old C as there is also a New C). Your reference to N 1C I believe is from the old recording of the plot as No. 1C."


To celebrate this break-through, Roy has created a page on Richard Taylor here.

A recent discovery is the burial of John & William's parents above. Below is condensed version
FATHER: Richard Taylor, born in Bristol, England, 8th May 1786 Served in the Commissariat, Department at Barbados W.I. for nearly 35 years. Died at Kingston C.W., 1 May 1859
Mother: Elizabeth or Eliza] Mehetabel Jones, born 31 Mar 1797 born Barbados, died 31 Mar 1860 Ernestown Township. This record might also refer to her, as only one matching cemetery: County/District Frontenac County Township City of Kingston, Cemetery Name Cataraqui Cemetery. Source
Mother of Elizabeth: If married 20 years before the birth of Elizabeth, her mother (Jane Jones?) would have been born abt. 1777. Found an Elizabeth Jones except her birth was 1707.

UPDATE: Sometimes one could have a person pointing at something and still miss seeing it!
Look above. Roy completely missed the fact that his Great Great Grandmother Isabella SLIMMONS? Taylor, wife of William Stewart Taylor was buried with her In-Laws, Richard and Elizabeth. We now have a death date and location and age.
