Anna Catherina Grubbe-Stjernfelt

(1635? - before 1695)
      "A History of the County Dublin" states: She was a native of Sweden, of which country her first husband was a noble, and is said to have been possessed of a large fortune and to have been of very high birth. She married, in addition to Baron Hamilton and Captain Shore, two other husbands, an ancestor of the Archdalls of Fermanagh, and Montgomerys of Tyrone, and an ancestor of the Summerville family, now ennobled under the title of Athlumney. Captain Shore's death occurred about 1668, and ten years later there were legal proceedings between his representatives and Thomas Radcliffe, the only son of Sir George Radcliffe, with regard to the lands of Rathmines.
The Ulster journal of Archaeology v. 4
quotes: Lady Hamilton's father, Lars Grubbe Stjernfelt, was Swedish Resident in Hamburg in 1635 > Deputy-Governor in Stockholm, 1637 ; Commissary-General of the Swedish army in Germany, 1640; at the same time colonel of a regiment of soldiers, and District Judge in Sjahundse and Trihundsee counties in Upland. He was shot to death in the battle of Leipsic, 1642. He left a large fortune to his daughters, Anna Catherina and Ingebord. The latter was married to Landrath Stackelberg of Liffland. Their grandfather, Peter Mattson, had twenty children, six by his first and fourteen by his second wife. Anna Catherina Grubbe-Stjernfelt was born in 1635? In Sweden.

Anna Catherina Grubbe-Stjernfelt married Lewis Hamilton Baron of Deserf, son of Malcolm Hamilton Archbishop of Cashel and Jane Crawford, on 30 July 1651 in Sweden.
Anna Catherina Grubbe-Stjernfelt married Richard Dunbar as her second husband, before 1666. He was described as an English knight and Scottish Captain of Horse.
     Anna Catherina Hamilton married Capt William Shore as her third husband, before 1667 in Ireland. He was a widower having been married to Ann Dockwra who died 22 Dec 1657. T1089/50 states that Capt William Shore married Anna Catherina, widow and relict of Lodowick Hamimlton, late Lord Baron of Leng in Sweden, dec'd .... they had a son Gabriel still living in 1677. William Shore being since dead, Anna Catherina is now married to James Somerwell of Tullykelter, gent.
He was called Magnus Schor in the Swedish pedigree.
Ball states: Captain Shore was connected with the County Fermanagh. His first wife was a daughter of Henry, Baron Dockwra, of Culmore; and Sir Henry Brooke, ancestor of the baronets of that name, who had married another daughter of Baron Dockwra, had also an interest in the house and demesne of Rathmines.

     Anna Catherina Grubbe-Stjernfelt and Richard Dunbar, Sir John Dunbar and Catherine Dunbar were mentioned in a court case on 24 May 1671. Chancery bill, between Irwin pltf & Callwell & Somerville defts: Christopher Irwin of Edinburgh, Doctor of Physic, sheweth that William Cathcart of Bardonagh, co. Fermanagh, was about 1614 possessed of Dromcroe, Drumborony, Courtloone and Turnagowan in the proportion of Dromcroe, together with the barrs of the mountains in the barony of Magheraboy by lease of 61 years to him made by John Dunbar kt, at £10 per acre. About 1639 William Cathcart did sell the said lands, together with the barrs of the mountains thereto belonging for the remainder of the term for the sum of £300, paid to him by Christopher Irwin of Lowtherstown, dec. father of your orator. He further sheweth that Geo Dunbar of Braugh in the said county, gent. brother of the sd John Dunbar, being seized of one great tate of land called the Braugh, together with Killybeg and ? Comehill, being barrs of the mountains thereto belonging, did jointly with his brother John Dunbar, enfeofe Christopher Irwin of the same in 1637. Your orator's father in 1639, in consideration of the marriage of your orator, with Margaret Wishart, daughter of James Wishart of Glenteverin in the said county, settled said lands and said lease on your orator, who continued in quiet possession till the rebellion of 1641. Orator's father had some years before his death become bound to Sir Gerard Lowther for a debt of £50 due by Mary Callwell, widow, afterwards married to Henry Longford of Enniskillen, which he (Irwin) had to pay. Some controversy having arisen between Longford and himself, the whole matter was referred to Dean Bartley of Clogher, and Mr Hugh Bartley of Lifford co. Donegal, clerk, who ordered Longford to repay to Christopher Irwin, the £50, which was accordingly done, yet in 1653 Longford made his complaint to one Colonel Barrow, a colonel under the usurped powers, who committed Chr. Irwin to gaol, till he should either repay the £50, or give surety to abide by an arbitration. Thereupon Chr. Irwin did about the 10 June 1653, did engage the quarterland great tate and the premises to Henry and Mary Longford & James Callwell, son of the said Mary, with the condition that if Christopher Irwin should not bring his arbitrator, Major Hugh Ross, to Enniskillen, to end all differences between the said parties, and to stand to certain arbitrators not named in the deed, or to an umpire to be chosen, the the said deed of mortgage to remain in full force. No award was ever made; yet Henry and Mary Longford, (who took the management upon her), got possession of the said lands; and Henry being deceased, she made them over to James Callwell, who sold them to Richard Dunbar, late of Derrygonnelly, grandchild to said John Dunbar; who left the four great tates or quarterland of Drumcroe & Drumborony, Callone, Turmagowan and Barwinlahorke, with the barrs of the mountains, between Dame Anna Catherina Hamilton alias Dunbar, his widow and relict, since married to James Somerwell of Tullykelter and Catherine Dunbar, an infant of about 3 years of age, daughter of Sir Richard & Anna Catherina; and the other great tate of Braugh to William Dunbar of Kilcow, co. Fermanagh. He therefor prays that they may be put upon their title by oath etc.

     Anna was a plaintiff in a civil court case on 24 June 1688. Somervill, plaintiff v. Dunbar. This chancery bill shews that Lady Anna Catherina Somervill alias Dunbar, about 21 years since, being married to Richard Dunbar, he being sickly, made his last will and testament (being seized in fee of Drumcroe etc) and devised unto oratrix, who then his wife & big with child, the proportion of Drumcroe during the minority of the child, and half to the child when of age, and half to herself for life, with remainder to the said child in fee. That he soon after died, being seized of the lands. Oratrix entered into the said lands, and was soon after delivered of a child which happened to be a daughter, and was christened Catherine. Oratrix continued quietly in possession, till John Dunbar, esq. about five or six years last past, commenced a suit against James Somervill, deceased & her then husband, herself and the said Catherine, endeavouring to prove that Richard had only an estate tail, to him and the heirs male of his body, with remainder to him the said John Dunbar. A commission sat at Belleek in the said county Fermanagh, to which Jas Somervill took Richard Dunbar's will, and left it on a table. It was taken up & removed by Thomas Hardcastle and Andrew Hamilton, commissioners for the said John Dunbar, who gave it to him. She prays that they may be called to answer certain queries about the will. [The researcher could not find this will in the PRO]..

Madog ap Gruffudd Maelor

(1191? - 1236)
      Both J Y W LLoyd in his work The History of the Princes...of Powys Fadog (1881) [vol. I, p. 162] and Frederic Seebohm in his work The Tribal System in Wales (1904) [pp. 151-152, A105] contradict Bartrum's later work by stating Madog's wife was Isotta ferch Ithel. Seebohm in his Appendix D [pp. A101-A105] provides documentation to support this lady's given name as Ysota, a variant of Isolde. On those pages he reproduced in full the 1270 IPM concerning the lands of Griffini fil Madocii de Brumfeld [Chancery Inquisition post Mortem, 5 Edw. I., No. 78, PRO], and this document clearly identifies Gruffudd ap Madog's mother as Lady Isotta, "dna Ysota." Neither of these sources (Lloyd & Seebohm) provide documentation for identifying her as a daughter of Ithel ap Rhys ab Ifor of Cantref Selyf (styled 'Frenin Gwent'), but they both accepted her as such.
Regarding Emma de Aldithelegh, wife successively of Henry Tuchet and Gruffudd ap Madog, Cokayne in Complete Peerage (1959) [XII:56] stated that her first husband died shortly before 8 Jan. 1241/2, and that she was alive as late as Feb. 1264/5. From the Patent Rolls we can add that she had married her second husband by 1 Jul. 1244 [Henry III, 3:430] and that she was alive as late as Nov. 1278 [Edw. I, 1:282-283]. Also the 1270 IPM cited by Seebohm clearly identifies her as a legitimate daughter of Henry de Aldethelig'. Transcripts of the Welsh Rolls reproduced on pp. 182-188 of vol. I of his opus, confirm her presence in Maelor Saesneg in 1278. At that time she seems to have retired to England, Edward I having granted her rents from the farm of the town of Derby, Claverle manor, Shropshire, and Tottenhale manor, Staffordshire.
A little biographical note overlooked by Lloyd is that the brother of Gruffudd ap Madog (d. 1269) named Hywel ap Madog was a priest at Myddle, Shropshire, who was favored by Henry III. See the 1232 charter transcribed in Patent Rolls, Henry III, 2:457-458 where he is desribed as "Hoheli filio Maddoc filii Griffini de Bromfeld, persone de Mudle..."
. Madog ap Gruffudd Maelor was born in 1191?. Lord of Northern Powys (called Powys Fadog after him) 119 -1236 (ruled jointly with brother Owain, 1191-1197, joined Llywelyn ap Iorwerth in league against England, 1212 (Brut y Tywysogion)
'Maddoc filius et heres Griffini de Suttun', held lands of Sutton in co. Salop.: he fined in 1221 to have the lands of his father in Shropshire (Excerpta e Rotulis Finium I:59)
It is certainly possibly that Madog ap Gruffydd (d. 1236) was married twice. I have his wife as a daughter (unnamed) of William de Braose (d. 1211) and Maud de St. Valery, based in part on Janet Meisel's documentation identifying Madog's daughter Angharad as a niece of Walter de Lacy (d. bef 24 Feb 1240/1), Lord of Meath: 'There are two surviving letters from this period, one from Fulk (FitzWarin) and one from Walter de Lacy, asking the justiciar, Hubert de Burgh, to forward the marriage of Fulk's son and the daughter of Madoc ap Griffin, the prince of South Wales....
Walter began by asking Hubert to expedite the marriage of his niece, Angareth (Walter's wife and Madoc's wife were sisters), and Fulk, son of Fulk FitzWarin - a marriage which Llewellyn was trying to prevent.' (Meisel, Barons of the Welsh Frontier, p. 43)
If Ysota/Isolde can be identified as this daughter, that would be a nice fit
. He was the son of Gruffudd Maelor ap Madog and Angharad ferch Owain Gwynedd.
     Madog died in 1236 in Wales.

Child of Owain Cyfeiliog ap Gruffudd and Gwenllian I ferch Owain Gwynedd

Owain Gwynedd ferch Gruffudd Prince of North Wales

(circa 1100 - 28 November 1170)
      Davies 1987; Walker 1990 : The death of Henry I in 1135 was the signal for more vigorous and more hostile policies by the Welsh, though firm action by Stephen (the king who succeeded Henry) and the marcher lords held the promise of successful defence. Henry II succeeded Stephen in December 1154, determined to restore authority to the kingdom and to repair the damage caused by civil strife and the lack of a strong central administration. By 1157 he was ready to turn his attention to Wales.
Two princes carried Wales through these difficult years, Owain Gwynedd in the north and Rhys ap Gruffydd in south Wales. Both were aware of the complex problems to be faced: to deal with rival Welsh dynasties, to deal with marcher lords, and to live in the shadow of a rich and powerful neighbor. Owain gauged the political realities of the day quickly and, however often he had to yield, he did not lose the initiative.
Owain Gwynedd, Prince of Gwynedd 1137-70, was born circa 1109. In 1137 he succeeded his father Gruffydd ap Cynan (1081-1137) to the kingdom of Gwynedd, which covered most of north Wales. While England was engaged in civil war, Owain used his skill as statesman and soldier to extend his frontiers. In 1157 Henry II led his first campaign against Owain, but it ended in a truce. He was required to do homage to Henry but it was not long before Owain was acting with complete independence. When Madog ap Maredudd died in 1160, he attacked Powys and extended his influence to the east. Six years later, the Council of Woodstock attempted to reduce the Welsh princes from client status to that of dependent vassalage, and the subsequent uprising was led by Owain and Rhys ap Gruffydd of south Wales. Henry's second attempt at subduing Wales failed ignominiously and left Owain free to capture Basingwerk and Rhuddlan castles (1166-67). In 1168 he set foot on negotiations with Louis VII of France to build an alliance between Gwynedd and France against their common enemy. It was a course which required great finesse and firm judgement. In one direction it pointed to a policy which would be used to good effect by later rulers of Gwynedd, the search for recognition and an alliance in Europe. Having openly defied Henry in 1168 by offering to help Louis, Owain maintained his independent position until his death. He left behind him a reputation of wisdom and magnanimity.
The reign of Owain Gwynedd marks the most peaceful period of Welsh independence, when the native princes absorbed many of the current European reforming ideas and adapted the more effective structures of both church and state to their own society. Monastic foundations were encouraged, diocesan boundaries defined, and many stone churches built. Motte-and-bailey earthwork castles identical to those built earlier by the Norman invaders were now erected by the princes as the centers of many of their personal estates. Two of Owain's sons are credited with building the first stone castles in Gwynedd towards the end of the 12th century. The tragedy, recurrent in Welsh history, was that Owain was not followed immediately by a strong ruler. Upon his death in 1170, open warfare broke out between his sons: Dafydd and Rhodri killed their elder half-brother, Hywel, and for the next 20 years Gwynedd was divided between them and their kinsmen. Gwynedd and Wales would not see another strong leader until Llywelyn the Great extended his control over most of Wales in the later part of the century.

Susanna ferch Gruffydd ap Cynan

     Susanna ferch Gruffydd ap Cynan married Madog, ap Maredudd, Prince of Powys Fadog, son of Maredudd Lord of Powys ap Bleddyn. His wife was possibly Susanna ferch Gruffudd ap Cynan (sister of #4), who was wife of Madog ap Maredudd, but Madog is known to have had children by other women also, and Bartrum does not list a mother for Margred in his charts in BWG, indicating that the early sources do not identify Margred's mother. PF, vol. 1, pp. 119-124 states that Margred (Margaret) was daughter of Madog by Susanna, but this source also gives Madog a chronologically impossible second wife Maude who md. 2nd, John Fitz Alan, d. 1268, earl of Arundel, who lived a hundred years later, and PF cannot be considered reliable on this matter.
