2801 via Boston MELANCON, Pierre dit La Verdure (I4488)
 
2802 vient en Acadie avec son epouse et une fille comme major du gouverneurCharles de St-Etienne de La Tour et Commandant en Acadie pendant sonabsence.

d'apres Placide Gaudet, le normand Philippe Mius avait des affinites avecla famille Bourbonb et fut cree sieur d'Entremont par Louis XIV; maisd'apres un descendant, les titres de noblesse remonteraient au XIesiecle, en Savoie, et une branche de la famille savoyarde aurait emigreen Normansie au cours du XVIe siecle.

MIUS (Muis) D’ENTREMONT, PHILIPPE, baron de POBOMCOUP (Pubnico), près ducap de Sable, lieutenant-major, procureur du roi, colon, le premier desd’Entremont de la Nouvelle-Écosse, né en Normandie (probablement àCherbourg) vers 1601 (ou 1609), décédé vers 1700 (ou 1701) en Acadie.

D’après Placide Gaudet, le normand Philippe Mius avait desaffinités avec la famille Bourbon et fut créé sieur d’Entremont parLouis XIV ; mais d’après un descendant, H. Léandre d’Entremont, lestitres de noblesse remonteraient au xie siècle, en Savoie, et unebranche de la famille savoyarde aurait émigré en Normandie au, cours duxvie siècle. En 1649, le sieur d’Entremont épousait Madeleine Hélie (ouÉlie) Du Tillet, née en 1626. Il était alors capitaine dans un régiment.C’est en 1650 (Coll. de manuscrits relatifs à la Nouv.-France, II : 329)ou 1651 (R. Le Blant) qu’il fut amené en Acadie avec son épouse et unefille par le nouveau gouverneur, Charles de Saint-Étienne de La Tour, unami d’enfance, comme lieutenant-major et commandant des troupes du roi.Pour le récompenser de ses services, La Tour, par des lettres patentes,en 1651 ou 1653, offrait à d’Entremont le fief Pobomcoup à titre debaronnie. Les droits féodaux conféraient au baron un territoires’étendant du cap Nègre au cap Fourchu (Yarmouth, N.-É.). Le châteauféodal fut érigé près de l’entrée du havre naturel de Pobomcoup, du côtéest.

D’Entremont joua un rôle important dans l’histoire de la coloniesoit par ses fonctions administratives, soit du fait qu’il fut l’un desrares seigneurs acadiens à s’occuper de culture et de défrichement ; ilattira sur son domaine « plusieurs engagés et quelques familles dePort-Royal, et cette seigneurie finit par former un petit centre depopulation ».

Outre leur fille qu’ils avaient amenée de France, les d’Entremontdonnèrent naissance à quatre enfants en terre acadienne : deux des fils,Jacques, né en 1659, et Abraham, de Plemazais (ou Plemarch), né en 1661ou 1662, épousèrent les filles du »gouverneur Charles de La Tour et deJeanne Motin, Anne et Marguerite ; le troisième fils, Philippe, dont lavie est plus difficile à retracer, épousa en 1707 une fille deJean-Vincent d’Abbadie* de Saint-Castin. Quant aux filles,Marie-Marguerite, née en France, épousa Pierre Melanson, dit La Verdure[V. Charles Melanson] ; et il semble que l’autre, Madeleine, soit restéecélibataire.

Vers 1670, au moment où le traité de Bréda était mis en vigueur,le gouverneur d’Andigné de Grandfontaine s’établissait à Pentagouet (surla Penobscot). D’Entremont fut nommé procureur du roi, charge qu’ilexerça pendant 18 ans malgré son âge avancé. On connaît des rapports deMius d’Entremont et de Jacques Bourgeois* sur les frontières de l’Acadiequi furent envoyés au ministre Pontchartrain par Joseph Robinau deVillebon. Vers la fin de sa vie, d’Entremont quitta son domaineseigneurial, léguant le titre de baron de Pobomcoup à son aîné, Jacques,et vint s’établir à Port-Royal avec son épouse et deux de ses enfants.Vénérable patriarche, il décédait à la fin de 1700 ou au début de 1701,âgé de plus de 90 ans. D’après la tradition, c’est à Port-Royal qu’ilmourut, mais Léandre d’Entremont indique plutôt comme lieu du décèsGrand-Pré, où il se serait retiré chez sa fille Marie-MargueriteMelanson. Philippe Mius d’Entremont a laissé en Acadie une nombreusepostérité ; la baronnie de Pobomcoup resta à la famille jusqu’à ladispersion des Acadiens ; et, après plus de trois siècles, on compteencore à Pubnico une centaine de familles du même nom.

2806 Walter de Lacie, elder son, paid in the 10th of Richard I, 1199,2000marks for the king's favour and to have livery of his lands, butthis being the last yearof that monarch's reign, his brother andsuccessor, King John, exactedno less than 1000 pounds for similar favourof livery. In the 9th ofthe latter king's reign, Walter de Lacieobtained a confirmation ofhis lands and dominion of Meath in Ireland, tobe held by him and hisheirs for the service of 50 knights' fees; as alsohis fees inFingall, in the valley of Dublin, to be held by the serviceof sevenknights' fees. But in three years afterwards, King John passingintoIreland with his army, Lacie was forced to deliver himself up andallhis possessions on that kingdom, and to abjure the realm. Hewassubsequently banished from England, but in the 16th of the samereign,he seems to have made his peace, for he was allowed to repossesshisCastle of Ludlow; and the next year he recovered all of hislands,except the castle and lands of Drogheda, by paying a fine of4000marks to the crown. After this we find him Sheriff of Herefordshire,in the 18th of King John, and 2nd of Henry III, and inthe 14th of thelatter king, joined with Geoffrey de Marisco, thenJustice of Ireland,and Richard de Burgh, in subduing the King ofConnaught, who had taken uparms to expel the English from histerritories. So much for the secularacts of this baron. Of his worksof Piety, it is recorded that heconfirmed to the canons of Lathonyall those lands and churches inIreland, granted to them by hisfather, Hugh de Lacie; and of his ownbounty, gave them the church ofOur Lady of Drogheda, with other valuablegifts. To the monks atCreswil, in Hereford, he was a special benefactor,having conferred onthem 200 acres of land and wood called Ham; also 600acres, with thewoods thereto belonging, and common pasture for theircattle in NewForest, and in divers pasturages. Moreover, the ninth sheafof wheatand other corn, except oats, throughout all his lordships inEnglandand Wales. Likewise the tithe of all the hides of those cattlewhichwere yearly sold at the larder of his Castle at Ewyas. In Irelandhefounded the Abbey of Beaubee, in Normandy, which was a first celltothe great Abbey of Bec in Normandy, and afterwards at Furness, inLancaster. He marriedMargaret, daughter of William de Braose, ofBrecknock, and in 1241,being then infirm and blind, departed this life,leaving his greatinheritance to be divided among females, viz., thedaughters of hissons.

2828 was of very small stature and very little is known about her early years.Being a descendant of the English King Alfred The Great was one reasonwhy William, Duke of Normandy, sought her in marriage. Apparently sherefused him as she did not want to be married to a bastard. Furious,William forced entry to her room and gave her a beating. However, thisrather unconventional behaviour resulted in her changing her mind andthey married in 1051, although they had to wait until 1059 before thepapal dispensation arrived. William relied heavily on her and she actedas regent in Normandy whenever he was absent. After the conquest ofEngland, she was crowned William The Conqueror's queen at Winchester.She went to the north of England with him and at Selby gave birth to thefuture King Henry I, probably their tenth or eleventh child. In the year1069 she went back to the Duchy of Normandy where she remained incharge. When she became ill in 1083, William The Conqueror hurried overfrom England to be with her.

Notes from Webb state that Sabina Atwater married to Morgan Connor firstand 'secondly to a Captain Wentworth and had a daughter named Mary whomarried a Taylor from Pomquet.' But see notes for Sabina and her otherTWO husbands. I have a note that says she had only a daughter whenmarried to Mr. Dunn, and that this was Tom Taylor's mom, whom I assumedfrom the context would be Tom Taylor of Bayfield, son of Aylward andMARY Taylor. In fact, this Mary by census records was b.about 1798 inN.S. [see Sabina's marriage dates!!].

2853 When Bardanes Turcus and Nicephorus I were fighting over the Byzantinethrone in 803, Leo at first joined Bardanes but later sided withNicephorus. Leo distinguished himself as a general under Nicephorus Iand Michael I and became 'strategus' (general) of the Anatolikondistrict of the empire. He took part in the campaign of 813 against theBulgars but, when Michael unwisely refused the peace terms they offered,the Asian troops under Leo deserted at the Battle of Versinkia, nearAdrianople. Leo then deposed Michael I and, in July 813, replaced him.Meanwhile, Krum, the Bulgarian Khan, had reached the walls ofConstantinople. Leo succeeded in drawing him back and concluded a treatywith Krum's successor, Omortag, that determined the boundary between thetwo countries and provided a 30-year peace. In March 815 Leo deposed theOrthodox patriarch Nicephorus and convoked a synod for the followingmonth that reimposed the decrees of the Iconoclast synod of Hieria of754, which had opposed the use of icons (religious images). Leo wasassasinated during a Christmas service in the church of Hagia Sophia byfriends of Michael the Amorian, whom Leo had condemned to death the daybefore on a charge of treason. After the murder Michael ascended thethrone as Michael II. Leo V 'The Armenian' Emperor of Byzantium (I5438)
 
2854 When he was ten years old in 1798, the British entered Enniscorthy. Hismother was already dead. His Grandmother, who was still quite young atthe time, put flour in her hair, which was still black, to made it lookwhite, and put him on her back. She told James that if the soldiersasked him any questions to say:'This is my grandmother and she speaksIrish'. She said to him: 'I am not asking you to tell any lies, becauseI do speak Irish.' When the soldiers were going past them, he cried out:'This is my grandmother and she speaks Irish.' The soldiers let them go.She was bent over and her hair was grey. O'BRIEN, James (I1061)
 
2855 When his father died, in the divison of his lands Chilperich I receivedthe poorest region, the kingdom of Soissons. However, when hishalf-brother Charibert died, he received the better parts of his lands.He repudiated his wife to be able to marry the Visigoth princessGalsvintha, but then murdered the latter to marry Fredegunde, hismistress. This sparked a family feud as his half-brother Sigebert I wasmarried to Galsvintha's sister. Attacked and defeated by Sigebert I, heseemed vanquished until Fredegunde had Sigebert I murdered. Chilperichthen tried to take his lands but was prevented by another half-brother,Guntram, King of Burgundy. First he tried to form an alliance withChildebert II, son of Sigebert I, but this lasted about two years andthen he made peace with his half-brother Guntram. A year laterChilperich fell victim to an unknown assassin, leaving a four-month-oldson, Chlotar II. Ambitious, brutal and debauched, Chilperichnevertheless had pretensions of being a man of learning; he wrote poorpoetry, became involved in theological matters, and ordered four lettersto be added to the alphabet. Regarding the church as a major rival tohis wealth, he treated the bishops with hostility and contempt. At thesame time, he had a reputation for injustice toward his subjects atlarge and imposed heavy taxes.

Chilperic I b. c. 539 d. , September or October 584, Chelles, FranceMerovingian king of Soissons whom Gregory of Tours, a contemporary,called the Nero and the Herod of his age. Son of Chlotar I by Aregund,Chilperic shared with his three half brothers (sons of Ingund, Aregund'ssister) in the partition that followed their father's death in 561,receiving the poorest region, the kingdom of Soissons. To this wasadded, however, the best part of Charibert's lands on the latter's deathin 567 or 568, so that Chilperic's kingdom corresponded in large part tothat later known as Neustria. In 568 he repudiated his wives in order tomarry Galswintha, sister of the Visigothic princess, Brunhild, who hadherself recently married his half brother, Sigebert I; but he soon hadGalswintha murdered and immediately married Fredegund, an earliermistress. The consequences of this crime constitute virtually the onlyclearly discernible thread in the tangled skein of Frankish history overthe next four decades, as first Sigebert, whose relations with Chilperichad in fact been bad from the start, and then his descendants, incitedby Brunhild, sought revenge for Galswintha's murder upon the persons ofChilperic, Fredegund, and their family. Saved from apparent disaster bythe assassination of Sigebert I in 575, Chilperic was prevented fromseizing the lands of the dead king's young heir, Childebert II, by theaction of Guntram, his third half brother and the king of Burgundy.Although Chilperic succeeded in forming an alliance with Childebertagainst Guntram by recognizing the young king as his heir (581), thiswas short-lived; in 583 Childebert and Guntram again came to terms. Ayear later Chilperic fell victim to an unknown assassin, leaving afour-month-old son, Chlotar II. Ambitious, brutal, and debauched,Chilperic nevertheless had pretensions to being a man of learning; hewrote poor poetry, became involved in theological matters, and orderedfour letters to be added to the alphabet. Regarding the church as amajor rival to his wealth, he treated the bishops with hostility andcontempt; at the same time, he had a reputation for injustice toward hissubjects at large and imposed heavy taxes.

OF THE FRANKS, Chilperic King of the Franks (I437)
 
2856 When his father died, Poland was supposed to be ruled jointly by Boleslawand his brothers, but he disposed of them and became its single ruler.He stopped the Bohemian and Ruthenian invasions, defeated thePommeranians and conquered the Baltic seacoast. In 999 he annexed theold city of Krakow and, after repulsing the Hungarians, addedTrans-Carpathian Slavonia to Poland. He involved himself further withthe Western civilization and expanded the Polish territory as far eastas the Dnjepr river in Russia OF POLAND, King Boleslaw I Chobry (I4820)
 
2857 When his father was killed in 972 he was a contender for the rule ofKiev, together with his elder two brothers. Yarapolk, the eldest brotheralready established in Kiev, disposed of Oleg the other brother andforced Vladimir to flee the country. Vladimir went from Novgorod toScandinavia, from where he returned with an army of Varangians, attackedand killed Yaropolk and in doing so became the sole ruler of Rus. In hisearly years as a ruler he was brutal, bloodthirsty and dissolute. By hisfirst wife, Rogneda of Polotzk, he had four sons and two daughters; by aGreek woman he fathered one son; by a Czech woman one son; two more sonsby a different mother; and by a Bulgarian woman two more sons.Apparently he had three hundred concubines at Vyshegorod, three hundredat Belgorod, and two hundred at Berestovo. He had married women broughtto him and as well deflowered virgins. At the beginning of his longreign he continued attacking the Byzantine Empire. However, he soonrealised that it was better to be on good terms with his neighbours andadopted Christianity for himself and his people. This happened around988 when he also took as his third wife the sister of the ByzantineEmperor. However, the Pechenegs continued to harass him and he had tofight them continually until the end of his reign. After his conversionVladimir became a changed man; he became mild towards criminals,generous to the poor and supported the Greek missionaries. This resultedin a picture of him that caused later generations to look on St.Vladimir and his grandmother, St. Olga, as the first-born of the newChristian people of Russia and her borderland. They were esteemed to besaints and Vladimir became the subject of a cycle of folklore and heroicpoems.

Vladimir was a semi-barbaric Viking tribal chief of great leadershipabilities; conquered and then was first ruler of a unified Russia; wasbaptised at Kherson in the Crimea in 988 and 'converted' his subjects toChristianity, and formed many alliances (many sealed with marriages ofhis children) with the other leaders of Europe. His father sent him togovern Novgorod in 970 despite his youth. He became Grand Duke, i.e.leader of his people, by killing his brother Yaropolk, uniting Novgorodand Kiev. After becoming a Christian, Vladimir built churches, promotedcharity, established Orthodox canon law and married Princess Anna,sister of Byzantine Emperor Basil II and daughter of Romanus II (Emperor959-63) and his second wife Theophano. 'From the reign of Svyatoslav'syoungest son, Vladimir, the Norman dynasty was definitely settled inKiev.' His feast day is July 15th. 
SVYATOSLAVOVICH, Saint Vladimir I Grand Duke of Kiev (I257)
 
2858 When in 1015 his father died, strife occurred between Jaroslav and hisbrothers. Svyatopolk, the eldest, murdered Boris, Gleb and Syvatoslavand then was driven out by Jaroslav. Of the other brothers, Izyaslavremained safe in Polotzk, Sudislav was imprisoned while Mstislav inTmutorokan prevented Jaroslav, until 1036, from being an absolute ruleras their father had been. Boris and Gleb were venerated as the firstRussian saints. Jaroslav, like his father, ruled for thirty-five years.He brought prosperity while the arts and literature flourished and inKiev the cathedral of St. Sophia was built. In 1030 he conquered Estoniaand a year later, with his brother Mstislav's support, attacked Poland.Mstislav died in 1036 leaving Jaroslav as the sole ruler. At last hedefeated the Pechenegs and in the ensuing peace Christianity flourishedand new monasteries were built. Before his death he divided his landsbetween his five sons. AV VLADIMIROVICH, Yarosl I Grand Duke of Kiev and Russia (I254)
 
2859 When Prince Henry revolted against his father in 1173, Sir Robert deBohonwas one of his associates. In the next year, the situationbecamecritical when Prince Henry persuaded William, the Lion King ofScotland,to join him in war against his father in return for thepromise ofNorthumberland, the northernmost Shire of England.Humphrey, third baronde Bohon, led the English King's army, which metand repulsed the rebelsat Fordham in Suffolk in 1173, and along withSir Richard de Lacy, metthe forces of Scotland and Prince Henry onJuly 13, 1174. The battleended in the complete rout of the rebelliousforces. King William wascaptured and imprisoned. Sir Robert de Bohonfled to Scotland and PrinceHenry was forgiven. King William's sister,Princess Margaret of Scotlandand the widow of Conan IV of Bretagne,Earl of Richmond, (d. 1170), wasmarried to Humphrey de Bohon, theyoung Earl of Hereford was who heir ofthe third Baron de Bohon. Sir Robert le Bon died in 1183, four yearsbefore his father BaronHumphrey de Bohon's death. Consequently, whenHumphrey the third Barondied in 1187, he was succeeded by his 12 yearold grandson, Henry(1176-1220) as fourth Baron de Bohon. Upon coming ofage, Henry wasknighted and made High Constable of England and held manorhouses andcastles at Caldicot, Haresfield, Oaksey and Walden in additionto themain Hereford holdings. A number of months after Sir Robert deBohon fled to Scotland, KingWilliam signed the humiliating Treaty ofFolaise and was released fromhis prison in Normandy. Upon returning toScotland, he awarded some ofhis followers including Sir Robert de Bohon,some land south ofGlasgow. Sir Robert spent little time on his land ashe was withPrince Henry who had been forgiven by King Henry II.Unfortunately forSir Robert de Bohon, young Henry the crown prince, diedsix yearsbefore his father. Sir Robert was with him at Martel inAquitaine onJune 11, 1183 when it happened. As far as it is known, SirRobert de Bohon never returned to Englandbut lived out his life (d.after 1210) on his Scottish land and becamea highly respected manoriallord. Legend has it that he was called 'leBon' ( the good). His son andheir had similar characteristics so thathe too was known as Sir Richard'le Bon' de Bon. DE BOHUN, Robert Le Bon (I6222)

2862 while the king and queen were in Acre, Fulk was killed in a hunting accident. His horse stumbled, fell, and Fulk's skull was crushed by the saddle, "and his brains gushed forth from both ears and nostrils", as William of Tyre describes. He was carried back to Acre, where he lay unconscious for three days before he died. D'ANJOU, Foulkes V (I6478)
 
2863 Wife of Boriwoi, the first Christian Duke of Bohemia, b. at Mielnik, c.860; d. at Tetin, near Beraun, 15 September, 921. She and her husbandwere baptized, probably by St. Methodius, in 871. Pagan fanatics drovethem from their country, but they were soon recalled, and after reigningseven more years they resigned the throne in favour of their sonSpitignev and retired to Tetin. Spitignev died two years later and wassucceeded by Wratislaw, another son of Boriwoi and Ludmilla. Wratislawwas married to Drahomira, a pretended Christian, but a secret favourerof paganism. They had twin sons, St. Wenceslaus and Boleslaus the Cruel,the former of whom lived with Ludmilla at Tetin. Wratislaw died in 916,leaving the eight-year-old Wenceslaus as his successor. Jealous of thegreat influence which Ludmilla wielded over Wenceslaus, Drahomirainstigated two noblemen to murder her. She is said to have beenstrangled by them with her veil. She was at first buried in the churchof St. Michael at Tetin, but her remains were removed to the church ofSt. George at Prague before the year 1100, probably by St. Wenceslaus,her grandson. She is venerated as one of the patrons of Bohemia, and herfeast is celebrated on 16 September.

St. Ludmilla and her husband, Borziwoy I, founder of the Bohemian dynastyof Premyslid, entered into the Christian Church. Her religious andpolitical influence over her grandson Wenceslas (Vaclav, Wenzel) angereda semi-pagan party among the nobility and, in 927 during the regency ofWenceslas's mother, Drahomira, Ludmilla was murdered.

2865 Will proved Oct. 5, 1484 Of Royton, Kent, England. Another sourcementions Royton in Lenham, Kent, which makes sense since the RandMcNally Atlas has a Lenham in Kent, but the only Royton I could find wason the west coast of England, no where near Kent.

He was killed byfollowers of Arnulf while at a meeting to settle their conflict. Duc de Normandie Guillaume I 'Longue épée' (I120)
