In Reply to: Re: Lovey Edney Eng-NC by Peter Ednay of 602

Peter: This is great news! Unfortunately, I don't have her place of birth, but am guessing it is near the London area. She was born in 1782. Her brother, Jonathan, was born May 1780. Their father was Sir Jonathan, who held a position in English Court Jurisprudence, so I am guessing he could possibly have been a Circuit Magistrate or Barrister/Solicitor at the least. Sir Jonathan supposedly inherited his title and estate, but don't know whether from his mother, father, or what. Am assuming his father. Lovey (Lovisa?) married Samuel Jones, a native of Wales. Apparently, this marriage was not with the blessings of Sir Jonathan and Lovey and Samuel emigrated to Elizabeth City, Pasquotank Co., NC, USA around 1812. The son, Jonathan, had attended college, although no records of his attendance have been found, but quit to go to sea, which displeased Sir Jonathan. The son Jonathan never returned to England nor contacted his father afterwards and also emigrated to the same area of the US about the same time, married a woman who maye have been name Elizabeth. A descendant, Isaac Jones, contacted the British authorities in the early 1900's regarding Sir Jonathan's estate, but there were no records found and the time period for claim had expired. Perhaps the estate went back to the Crown? It is thought that Sir Jonathan disowned his 2 wayward children.
