Continuation from July 9 research
For a Fact we know the following:
Richard Taylor, son of George Taylor, m. Elizabeth Mehetabel Jones, whose mothers name was X Leslie. See next paragraph, "maiden name I believe was "Jones"
this would be maiden name = ' a woman's surname before marriage '

Excerpt: p.1 The Tale of Bowman Leslie: "...He married a woman whose maiden name I believe was "Jones" -- she is said to have been a cousin of the then Duke of Norfolk
[Maybe 1807 if she was born abt. 1787]
but was more or less disinherited [excomunicated - this orig text "disinherited" was struck out) because she had given up the Roman Catholic faith and
married a Protestant.
I believe she had an uncle or some close relations living on the island by the name of Leslie, they were all apparently wealthy. "Aunt Fanny" [?] is said to
tell the story of a certain "Bowman Leslie"...

Roy: If you study the history of that time, one did not just marry into another Religion.
John Taylor was a Baptist Lay Preacher, according to Susie Briem.

In The Tale of Bowman Leslie, could this John Bowman Leslie be a relation and the one in the story? Which has it's own page here - The Tale of Bowman Leslie .

Excerpt: p.2 The Tale of Bowman Leslie: ...We have peculiar and beautiful man's gold ring with white enamel on which is engraved "Henry Leslie ob 12 June 1753 7M." which no doubt means
Henry Leslie died June 12th 1753 aged 7 months.
MRS. TAYLOR -- her name may have been Jane ---
is said to have been a big hthe youngest was Wm. Taylor, my Grandfather. He is said to have been born in Arundel Castle, the home of the Duke of Norfolk,
where Mrs. Taylor [Jane] had gone on account of her health and not climate. .. .

This would make her name married name Elizabeth Mehetabel x and her mother's name x

This is directly from an obituary published abt. 1938, she died 1937
" Richard´s mother-in-law was of noble birth, belonging to the Catholic family of the Duke of Norfolk, when she married out of her faith she was disinherited.
After a few years her family reconciled and she visited the ancestral home at Arendale Castle where she gave birth to her youngest son: William Stewart Taylor,
the father of Susie.
[excerpt from Susie Briem Obituary]

Doing a search such as Taylor, Jones, Leslie and Barbados, have not found any matches.

Now let us do a search on
"Duke of Norfolk" and "Arendale Castle" and "Jane Jones"
A search on Arendale goes nowhere. I suspect now that is just a newspaper typo about 1937, and it is Arundel Castle, as mentioned everywhere else

An interesting result from this search "x" found Taylors connected to Enmore Castle in Somerset here. Margaret married Rev. Dr. Rowland TAYLOR, son of John TAYLOR and Susan ROWLAND this leads to Roger LE BIGOD (note this name above 3 paragraphs above.
Researched this URL again on July 2013, see no connection to Enmore. Rowland was born in Gloucester. Also executed on 5 Feb 1554-55 in Suffolk, England
It is also possibly his last name is not even Taylor. Leave here only to rule out relation to a rowland taylor.

The Goal here is to locate Richard Taylor In-Laws full names. To date, Roy has not found any cousin connection between the Leslies and Duke of Norfolk.

Births, deaths, and marriages from the "Barbados

Barbados has twenty-two castles and forts in 1736, and twenty-six batteries mounted with 436 guns. [2] Napoleon Bonaparte's reign was 18 May 1804 – 11 April 1814 and 20 March 1815 – 22 June 1815.
Both France and Britain had become tired of war and signed the Treaty of Amiens in October 1801 and March 1802. Britain declared war in 1803.
At Milan Cathedral on 26 May 1805, Napoleon was crowned King of Italy with the Iron Crown of Lombardy. By 1805, Britain had convinced Austria and Russia to join a Third Coalition against France.
The French Navy would escape from the British blockades of Toulon and Brest and threaten to attack the West Indies (i.e. Barbados)
Napoleon spent the last six years of his life in confinement by the British on the island of Saint Helena in the Atlantic Ocean, 1,870 km from the west coast of Africa..Bonaparte decided France's naval power
was not yet strong enough to confront the Royal Navy in the English Channel and proposed a military expedition to seize Egypt and thereby undermine Britain's access to its trade interests in India.[3]
Roy mentions Napoleon here having seen image of a printing of a Taylor and Bonaparte, and to show other events in the world taking place during this time. Also see June 24, 2012

Admiral Taylor and Napoleon
Napoleon and Admiral Taylor. No relationship to us. ?
Update: Roy now believes this is nothing more than a print, from a photo, of a slide, of artwork, done for Stanley Kubreck (sp) (Space Odessy 2001)
planned for a movie on Napoleon that was never made. In other words, Taylor is a character in a movie plot. More research into this will be required.

100 Pages of Letters - Carol Jarvie Collection
While searching Caribbeana, Roy takes time out to go back to a 100 page collection from Carol Jarvie of retyped letters from the family. A couple pages is a more detailed retyping of Sigurdur Christopherson's Diary. Another is page 85 1/3 on William Taylor. It states" 1848- Uncle John Taylor makes necessary arrangements or preparations." Settled at Kingston C.W. [Canada West] where grandfather worked at his trade [probably William] as a cabinet maker bring lattinly engaged on Parliament buildings at Kingston,..."
"A Walnut writing desk or case with its many compartments is at Grund."
Goes into story of having it repaired and Will buying it back.
"Very little is known of my mothers forebearers [probably written by Veiga about Caroline Taylor] the Taylors except that they belonged to what we have recognized as the British Aristocracy. My Great Grandfather Richard Taylor was a commissioned officer in British Army in Barbados, W.I. [West Indies] and he had a fine home and plantation and many slaves who were freed before the abolition of slaves was compulsory.

He suffered severe financial losses in a great hurricane in 1833 where plantation was ruined and buildings wrecked."

Writer refers to Jane, Henrietta, and Frances, Mary dying young woman, and William's brother, Richard was being educated for the ministry but died when at college. Another brother of William was Henry. They state ARMY when most stories state NAVY.
They use Slimmons. Isabella Slimmons , daughter of John Slimmons of C.W.. She had a brother who was in the foundry business and wealthy and he had a son John. Only son on that part of the family that Caroline remembered playing with. Slimmons was a very uncommon name.

Uncle John came to rescue the five girls upon death of Isabella moving to Peterborough, Ontario. John Taylor's wife is referred to as "Aunt Lizzie". William moved to Michigan. This whole story is probably already posted, so Roy is just listing certain parts of this. Aunt Lizzie (This would have to be John and William's sister Elizabeth) at early age married George [George?] Lapham. A search on George goes nowhere except one census in Cornwall.

On November 10th, 2012, Roy discovers that a Post Card was sent to William Stewart Taylor Care Of George Lapham at Lansing Michigan. This is a historic card since NOWHERE is William mentioned regarding New Iceland.
It is proof beyond a shadow of a doubt regarding his involvement.

Roy has completely read these100 pages of private letters on December 27, 2012. While there are a variety of authors, Veiga's almost weekly letters to her mother, Caroline Christopherson are so well written, one could envision her life while possibly at Caspaco BC or on Smith Island, near Prince Ruppert, DeHonsey, Cassiar. One reference "In front of us is a sort of Lagoon or slough which connect two arms of Skeena and separate us from DeHonsey Island" which would be in Britich Columbia, Canada. The collection is considered Private and unable to publish. If you know where this schoolhouse was in 1918, please let this webmaster know.

Descendants of Forster W. Clarke

Generation No. 1

1. Forster W.4 Clarke (George3, George2, William?1) was born
1776 in Barbados, W.I., and died 2 Jan 1840. He married Hannah Prescod
Grasett, daughter of Elliott Grasett and Mary Williams. She was born
Abt. Nov 1786 in St. Philip, Barbados, W.I..

BIOGRAPHY: The "Barbadian" Newspaper 1835: "June 20. Sailed Per "Steadfast". Forster Clarke Esq., Mrs. Clarke, and three children, Mrs.
C. Pile, Misses P & R. Pile, Mrs. George N Taylor [Not related?] and daughter, Dr. Grant Thomas, Mrs. Thomas & child. Wm Bovell Esq., Miss Bovell, Miss
Marshall, Mr. Fox, and four servants".

The "Barbadian" Newspaper. 1836: "October 5: ... To Let, "The Garden", the property of Forster Clarke Esq. Enquire of the undersigned at the "Belle" Estate". Thomas Marshall."

We have an instance in the great hurricane which commenced on the 10th of August 1831 in Barbados, and was felt as a dreadful gale at New Orleans on the 17th and 18th of August. The distance between Barbados and New Orleans is about 2100 nautical miles, which would give for its progress an average of about fourteen miles an hour. Colonel Reid observes in his excellent work, that, violent as these storms are, their rate of pregress, on examining the dates, will be found to be no more than the rate of the ordinary atmospheric currents, which is stated to be at from seven to fifteen miles an hour...." Page 47

A sever one was 1675 and 1780, which included the loss of human life at 4,326 souls. Captain Thomas Taylor, lying in Carlisle Bay, Barbados of the H.M.S. Albemarle recorded events in the log. Page 48

Page 55 talks about the 1831 hurricane and states he has difficulty finding detailed accounts 15 years later, yet here he gives details of the event. Does he list Richard and family. He starts with Bryan T. Young. The weather did not give expectation of a hurricane, except redness in the sky on the 10th of October. Possibly the 1833 hurricane was in fact in 1831. ''The writer'' lost portion of the mansion at 3 am, lifted off his feet and carried some two hundred yards. Scent of something like Sulphur in the air. Hurricane lasted from midnight to 8 AM.
PAGE 56 ''Some houses were actually levelled to the earth.'' Page 58 ''Barracks almost to the ground''

, and numbers buried in the ruins. I next proceeded to Bishop's Court; here too was ruin and devastation---not a wall standing except the New hall ; the Bishop, Mrs. Coleridge, and...Cavan's house levelled to the ground ; ...the King's House and Commissary quartes are standing...No St. Mark's Chapel, not a stone to tell where it stood..
For the last two days the living have been employed in burying the dead, this is a most distressing sight...
some coffins with two persons.
Page 60 "August 15th. Everything still looks dreadful." "...even the soil which produced them is washed away, or rendered unfit to produce a crop."
Page 61 "Four years only had passed since Barbados was devastated, when the appearances, on the 3rd of Steptember 1835, threatened anew the poor inhabitants with a storm." A severe storm, then another in 1837. See page 62. This is probably why the Taylors sold Enmore and moved to Kingston.
This would prove the Hurricame of 1833 did not existaccording to this author. The Hearn family take of Bowman Leslie must have referred to 1831 hurricane, NOT 1833.

From 1839 to 1843, the West India Archipelago was visited by three terrific and devastating earthquakes.

Page 69 "Who could picture to himself the scene where that earth on which we dwell oepns at our feet and engulfs in its insatiable bowel the devoted victims! Flames and suffocating vaours rise from the depth, and increase the terror and confusion of the moments. The surface is in an undulating motion like a sea of boiling liquid."

End The History of Barbados by Sir Robert H Schomburgk

HMS Albemarle was a 28-gun sixth rate frigate of the Royal Navy. She had been built as the French merchantman Ménagère and was subsequently purchased for service in the French Navy. She was captured shortly afterwards by a British squadron, and was commissioned into service with the Royal Navy, where amongst her commanders in her short career was Captain Horatio Nelson, who would later win several famous victories over the French.

Ménagère was duly commissioned into the Royal Navy on 22 November 1779 under the command of Captain John Thomas, who brought with him the officers and crew from his previous command, the sloop HMS Barbadoes.[1] An additional 44 men were transferred from Hotham's flagship HMS Grafton and Albemarle was duly assigned to serve off the Leeward Islands.[5] Thomas was succeeded on 12 June 1780 by Captain Thomas Taylor. Under Taylor, Albemarle was part of Sir George Rodney's fleet during the Battle of Martinique in April 1780, but did not take part in the battle herself.[6] Albemarle remained in the Caribbean and was in Carlisle Bay, Barbados when she was damaged by a hurricane that began on 11 October.[7] Taylor remained in command while repairs were carried out that allowed her to sail for Britain as a convoy escort, and until she was paid off in February 1781.

No Relationship here, yet Richard did have a son George who died in the Hurricane, then another
The next publication did not appear until 1840, when a collection of the Acts for the reign of William IV (1830-7) was printed in the Island. This work was compiled and prepared for the press by George Nelson Taylor, a member of Assembly (afterwards Speaker,) acting under the direction of a committee of the House. It comprises a complete table of the public Acts, those in force being starred ; a table of the private Acts ; the text of the public Acts in force, with the number of the sessional chapter of every Act of which the text is not given inserted in its proper chronological place, and lastly an analytical index, and the ordinances for the government of Bridgetown. A compilation on similar lines of the Acts for 1837-1841 was produced in 1842 under the direc- tion of a similar committee by Samuel Taylor their clerk.

The next undertaking was a more important one. In 1844 a similar committee published under the editorship of their clerk, Samuel Taylor, the seventy public Acts still in force out of the total of three hundred and fifty nine that had been passed between 1800 and 1830. The work consists of two hundred and thirty small octavo pages comprising...

...The well-known edition of 1855 was the outcome of a joint address of the Houses. By an Act of 12th April 1854 — the schedule of which is to be found in the supple- mentary volume of 1863 — a large number of Acts -were repealed; and in May 1854 George Nelson Taylor (then a member of Council) and Charles Packer, the Solicitor General, were appointed to bring out the new edition, for a remuneration of three hundred pounds. The work, in one volume of six hundred and thirty five royal octavo pages, was printed in England. When stamped with the seal of the Island, it was to be the only lawful statute book with regard to the laws inserted therein.

"Old churches, ministers, and families of Virginia"
At my request, a worthy friend — most competent to the task — has searched these records, and though unable to specify who were the vestrymen of the parish, yet, in giving the following list of magistrates from 1680 to 1695, has doubtless furnished us with the names of far the greater part of the vestrymen, if not the whole of them, during that period. We cannot determine to which side of the river they belonged, as both the county and parish were on both sides. They are as follows : — Henry Aubrey, Major Henry Smith, Captain George Taylor, Mr. Thomas Harrison, Colonel John Stone, Colonel Leroy GriflBn, Major Robinson, Colonel William Loyd, Cap- tain Samuel Bloomfield, William Fauntleroy, Samuel Peachy, Wil- liam Slaughter, Cadwallader Jones, Henry Williamson. My friend adds that " the character and habits of the early settlers, so far as can be ascertained from their wills and the records, indicate intelligence and a high state of morals for the times.*' This section appears to have been settled chiefly by those coming from the lower counties, — the names of the principal men being those of families in the lower country. There are some, however, whose names are rarely met with in other counties ; and there is evidence that they originally settled here. They are such as Latane, Waring, Upshaw, Rowsee, Rennolds, Micou, Roy, Clements, Young.

To the labours of another friend, on the other side of the river, we are indebted for information gotten from the records of Rich-


mond county after the year 1692, which can nowhere else be found, as we have no vestry-book of that county, except that of North Farnham parish, from the year 1787 to 1804. The first justices of the peace were Captain George Taylor, William Underwood, Cap- tain William Barber, James Scott, Captain Alexander Swan. From that time to the Revolution, the principal families in the county were Stone, Glascock, Deane, Donaphun, Colston, Thornton, Travis, Peachy, Tuyloe, Conway, Brockenbrough, Gwin, Tarplay, Down- man, Slaughter, Parker, Sherlock, Davis, Robinson, Beale> Smith, Woodbridge, Jleale, Barrow, Taverner, Barber, GriflSn, Fitzhugh, Fauntleroy, Gibson, Taliafero, Ingo, Bellfield, Tomlin, Grymes, Metcalf, Newton, Barnes, Sydnor, Jordan, Hornby, Hamilton, Car- ter, Mountjoy, Flood, Plummer, Beckwith. Of all these, my in- formant says, a very few have descendants in the county at this time who are called by these names. Not related to Roy's knowledge

Bridgetown, Barbados is above left ship to left of the bay.
Relation: Caribbean Views. Collect Britain [Roy forgot he had this map online in pieces and just completed it]
Description: This is the earliest known map exclusively of the island of Barbados. It appeared in A True and Exact History of the Island of Barbados written by Richard Lignon
and published by Humphrey Moseley in 1657. Lignon is believed to have redrawn the map from an original, now lost, made by John Swan, the island's leading surveyor of the time
The map identifies 285 plantations by name of owner, the majority along the island's coast. According to the map much of the interior of the island is overgrown with forest and still
virtually inaccessible, for the roads leading inland from the coast quickly peter out. Four churches are shown along the coast, with fortifications at Carlisle Bay protecting the island's principal town,
Bridgetown. Vignettes depict planters hunting wild hogs and chasing runaway ...

. rjN the death of the second Baronet, Sir S. R. B. Taylor, who died unm. i8th May, 1815, his extensive estates descended to his eldest sister, Anna Susanna, whose husband, George Watson, Commissioner of Excise,
assumed the name of Taylor, and soon ran through his fortune. (See BURKE's " Dormant and Extinct Baronetage.")

" Simon Taylor," says Dr. Miller, " probably exercised greater influence in Jamaica, and for a longer period than any other individual,
not even excepting the Prices. His father is said to have been a Scotchman, who came to Jamaica to follow his trade as a carpenter, which he did with such effect, as to leave ;^20,ooo to each of his two sons. Simon Taylor died at Port Royal,
leaving behind him the greatest fortune which, per- haps, any West Indian had ever accumulated. He was buried at his pen in Liguanea, where his brother had been previously interred, but from a subsequent sale, it was thought proper to remove
the bodies afterwards to Lysons, in St. Thomas in the East. This was done in not a very decent manner, on a common mule cart." — Memoir of Lt. Gov. Morrison, in Kingston Chronicle newspaper.

There was another, and distinct, family of this name in Jamaica,
descended from one of the Pilgrim Fathers, and which intermarried with many well-known old families in the island.

"* Captain Bridges Watkinson Taylor, of the Apollo frigate, was drowned in 1814, by the upsetting of his boat off Brindisi, in the Adriatic, where he had previously
caused the destruction of the French frigate Uranie, by threatening to enter the harbour and attack her. His exem- plary conduct and amiable character obtained him
universal respect. He was the youngest brother of Major-General Sir Herbert Taylor, the present Military Secretary to H. R. H. the Duke of York." source

he noted Elizabeth Taylor granted a power of attorney 2 Nov 1725 to Charles Fisher, master of the ship Mary Gallye, to sell her tobacco and to transact other
business for her in England. But Prince George records show that that Elizabeth Taylor lived in Barbados and was the wife of Richard Taylor:

Mother may have been Jane-maiden name
possibly was Jones (his mother was a
member of the Duke of Norfolk family (the Howard family) head of the Catholic Church of England-his mother excomunicated for having married to a Protestant,
but now that religious freedom had returned to England she had rturned home to give birth to this child in the family home (Arundel Castle.)
The Norfolk dukedom is the highest Dukedom in England next to the Royal Family. Two members of the Howard family have been beatified for Sainthood in 1929 (one was named Philip).
Anne Bolyne & Katherine Howard (two wives of Henry VIII) were of this family

Reading this over, and keep in mind, Sig could be mistaken or given wrong info, Sig says Richard married ??, we know it was Elizabeth. We know his father was suppose to be George.
Sig says his mother's name was Jane JONES Taylor.

"Some info. about Jones name in Barbados:
The earliest date is 1628. A group of London Merchants obtained from the Earl of Carlisel a grant of 10,000 acres in Barbados.
This group sent out a ship called the Marygold. The master was John Jones, with Capt. Charles Wolferstone, and Capt. John Swan.
They arrived Carlisle Bay, 5 July, 1628. Jerry. jonesgenealogist@aol.com. see web site; thegoldenlionbb.com."

This would prove that what GF Kay told Sig was incorrect. Richard DID NOT HAVE 600 SLAVES. Now having one is one too many.
This has been discussed under Taylor RnD.
Proof: Bayleys plantation is important in the history of Barbados. It was created by Joseph Bayley between 1719 and 1738 and by
1812 covered 444 acres.
Together with Wiltshires, another plantation managed by the same family, they represented two of the largest plantations in the
St. Philip parish,
with a total slave population of 350 slaves.

Dear Mr. Christopherson,
A basic search was facilitated on your behalf but unfortunately, Elizabeth/ Eliza Mehetabel
Jones was not found.
Sources checked: 1. Baptisms solemnized within the Anglican Church, RL1/58 2. Baptisms in
Churches other than Anglican Churches, RL1/84
The Archives has a policy whereby records are checked for a given year, plus 2 years prior and
2 years subsequent.
This approach was undertaken and the baptism was checked between 1795-1799, in both indexes,
but she was still not found
Moreover, this Department conducts basic searches only. In order to pursue a more in-depth
search, you may have to consider
employing a researcher from the list attached to this letter.

The Librarian of Barbados replied with a long document with all the Taylor's indexed in their own genealogy .... old volumes done
50-100 years ago.
The names all match and a Richard has about 15 mentions. They said his wife's name, Elizabeth Mehetabel JONES Taylor does not
show in any birth records.
THFS's book has all the children of Richard and Elizabeth Taylor birth info. It is my belief that her name was Jane Jones and mothers
surname was Leslie
belonging to the Rector in Barbados with his lineage to the well known Leslie family in Scotland.

John Taylor to his sister Henrietta in Barbados, St. Helier, Jersey, 1844
"...redacted see my cousins here or rather in London, redacted", [31]., [70]
Have not seen anything written about who any family was in England. We do not know if Richard was an only child, nor what
happened to his mother. It is possible that unlike Boarding Schools, Richard was sent to Barbados to become a man. Possible his
mother passed away, then his father drowned. It looked like only John went to England, and his mother and William being born there.
All we could do is piece the puzzle together, one piece at a time. This would also indicate that family lived on St. Heilier, which is an island south of England. So John was certainly not broke.

Reading letter from John Taylor on an island between Eng and France to his sister Henrietta, who took a trip to ST. Vincent. I looked it up
and it is direct west of Barbados.
This was 1844. What intrigued me is he mentions wanting to see cousins there or in London;
"I should like to see my cousins here or rather in London, but that will depend upon circumstances you know."
Too bad Taylor is such a common name. As of May 2015 any Taylor cousins are unknown! This would prove George had sibling's
children Known to John.

I did find this of interest and decided to see if Taylors were on this island with John.
Right off the top gal's last name is Dora Louisa Taylor. Again, common name.

History of Trinidad and Tobago (Wiki)
Trinidad remained in Spanish hands until 1797, but it was largely settled by French colonists. In 1889 the two islands were incorporated into a
single crown colony.[1] Trinidad and Tobago obtained its independence from the British Empire in 1962 and became a republic in 1976.
Christopher Columbus re-discovered Trinidad.

[I cannot help but compare these indians to the U.S. population. History does repeat itself and her the peaceful indians (or current
U.S. Citizen who is disarmed against our constitutional right) leads to slavery, or today, a faciast government asking their police and
military if they will shoot civilians.]

"Trinidad and Tobago is reported to have been densely populated at the beginning of the colonial period. Although in 1510 Trinidad and Tobago
was said to have the only "peaceful Indians" along the whole South American coast, demand for slaves to supply the pearl-fisheries in nearby
Isla Margarita led to them being declared "Caribs " (and thus, fair game for slavers) in 1511"
1783 was less than three thousand
1777 there were only 2,763
By the time the island was surrendered to the British in 1797 the population had increased to 17,643: 2,086 whites, 1,082 free people of colour,
1,082 Amerindians, and 10,009 African slaves.

The first announcement from Whitehall in England that slaves would be totally freed by 1840 was made in 1833. In the meantime,
slaves on plantations were expected to remain where they were and work as "apprentices" for the next six years.
Full emancipation for all was finally legally granted ahead of schedule on 1 August 1838.

There is a letter from John Taylor to sister Henrietta. It references Soufriere. I believe the trip just refers to going up a mountain as opposed to
some other geographic location. See la Soufriere. La Soufrière (volcano). A Volcano on the island of Saint Vincent [NW of Barbados]in the

Having read many books on Barbados and Slavery, this was the first found written about "Branding a slave". The Taylor mentioned in 1st paragraph is not related, that Roy knows of. It is impossible for us in this day and age to comprehend much that went on in the 1600's. Roy has come across the London Printer Rochard Taylors name many times. He is unrelated to our knowledge.

Roy found a PDF document "buried" in the archives of the University of Iceland. A Briem Descendant donated family letters of Halldor and Susie TAYLOR Briem. One name out of two pages (20% family for sure) was John Richardson Taylor. Not sure if following is related. A letter was written 25.5.1884 from John Richardson Taylor from St. Augustine to Susie Briem in Iceland. Here is bad Icelandic to ENG synopsis "Fits stay well . Says travelogues there and of the people of those he visited and jobs . Also of their potential ."
Keep in mind that Yellow Jack fever his Jacksonville FL and most of the population fled at this moment in time. None of the Taylor cousins of John & William are known. What I am looking for is a tie in from this fellow to Richard Taylor's family. This felow with matching name was born 1884, so obviously he did not write an 1884 letter in question.

Roy discovered the reason William and Jane TAYLOR Hearn left their Orange Grove in FL.

One family letter mentions that John Taylor attended the Coronation 28 June 1838 of Queen Victoria, and that this must mean they had connections (Find quote).
Decided to search, ticket to queen victoria Coronation 28 June 1838 and "john Taylor"
This lead to this ticket by someone else, yet shows what our John Taylor might of received in order to attend.

Could John's actual ticket be in the Catalogue of the Earl Marshal's papers at Arundel Castle?
