Lewis Courtney, b. 1793 in Virginia, emigrated to KY>MO

address1=9802 West 131 Terrace
city=Overland Park

ancestor=Lewis Courtney, b. 1793 in Virginia, emigrated to KY>MO

comments=I'm interested in corresponding with anyone with a connection to my Courtney line.

Lewis Courtney, born 1793 in VA, emigrated to Winchester, Clark Co., KY at a young age. (I suspect Lewis is related to Thomas Courtney of K&Q Co. VA, but haven't substantiated it). Lewis's son Caswell was born 1812 in Clark Co., KY. They emigrated to Howard Co., MO around 1825. Caswell eventually established himself in Keytesville, Chariton Co., MO, while Lewis moved on to Pettis Co., MO. Caswell had a son Commodore, of Keytesville MO. Commodore had a son Walter, of Lincoln, Benton Co., MO, who had a son Lynn of Kansas City, MO.

de Courtenay SPAIN

On Sat, 2004-12-11 at 06:10,

name= andrew
lname= de courtenay
address1= faro park 160
city= Playa Blanca, Yaiza
state= Las Palmas
country= SPAIN
zip= 35570
ancestor= Courtenay
comments= Hello from Lanzarote. I came upon your website by chance today and I am very interested in finding out about the (de) Courtenay family. I have no idea of the origin of the name, apart from what is written on this site. The "de" part of my name tends to indicate that we are of French origin, although I have no information about this, unfortunatly my mother suffers from Alzheimers disease so it is almost impossible for me to get any information from her. Can you enlighten me on anything?

Courtenay family history

fname=Christopher John
address1=32/1-3 Funda Place
state=New South Wales

comments=I am interested in tracing my Courtenay family history. I live in Sydney, Australia and was born in 1982. I have the full names and dates of birth of some of my relatives including my father, grandfather and great grandfather however are having some difficulty now trying to locate information/records thereafter.

Particularly, I would like to find my Courtenay family history to before 1788 so that I can ascertain who was the first Courtenay to come to Australia.

Can you help me do this, or can you point me in the right direction by giving me the contact of a geneaology person that you may know of who has perhaps already traced this history back.

Look forward to hearing from you.

Kind Regards

Christopher John Courtenay

Margaret Courtenay, supposed daughter of Sir Hugh of Haccombe & Maud Beaumont

address1=51 Bridge rd

ancestor=Margaret Courtenay, supposed daughter of Sir Hugh of Haccombe & Maud Beaumont

comments=I am desperate to find somehting on Margaret Courtenay, Married to Sir Thomas Grenville, I have not been able to find anything on her on any site that I have come across.

From what I see, she cannot possibly be the daughter of Hugh & Maud.

Her "brothers" were born in 1417 & 1427 so one would presume that should be born between those years...

Can anyone help me please with something definite....

I note that on the offical Powderham site there is nothing that would solve the Mystery...
