This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Sir Stephen Thornhurst
m. Sibilla Crispe (dau of William Crispe, Lieutenant of Dover Castle)
We speculate (without any real evidence although we understand that some other web sites show Stephen & Sibilla in this family's pedigree) that Stephen & Sibillla were parents of the following Stephen. Stephen's marriages & sons are mentioned in www.kentarchaeology.org.uk (see here, with thanks to a contributor (DS, 06.06.09) for bringing this to our attention).
1. Sir Stephen Thornhurst ('Thornix')
  m1. Mary Gifford (d 05.1609, dau of John Gifford of Ichell & Weston, widow of Sir RIchard Baker)
  A. Sir William Thornhurst of Agney (not Agnes) Court, Kent the first mentioned by TCB
  Identified by the kentarchaeology site as 'of Ford' but assumed to be the William who was later of Agney Court. This is thought to be a reasonable assumption not least because he named his son after his mother's family.
  m. Anne Lyte-Howard (dau of Charles Lyte-Howard, son of Thomas Howard, 1st Viscount of Bindon)
  i. Sir Gifford Thornhurst, Bart of Agney Court (d 16.12.1627)
  m. Susan Temple (bur 20.11.1669, dau of Sir Alexander Temple, she m2. Sir Martin Lister of Thorpe Arnold)
  a. Frances Thornhurst
  m. Richard Jennings of Standridge (d 1668)
  b. Barbara Thornhurst
  ii. Frances Thornhurst apparently of this generation
  m. Sir Robert Napier, 2nd Bart of Luton Hoo (d 1660)
  m2. (after 1611) Dorothy Drew (dau of Roger Drew of Densworth, widow of Hippocrate de Otten)
  B. Sir Thomas Thornhurst (d 1627, General)
  Thanks to a contributor (DS, 06.06.09) for bringing to our attention the entry within BHO (The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent: Volume 11, Monuments in the cathedral) which provides the following:

Paterson (vol 1, p443) reports that the Campbells of Skeldon were "a direct branch of the Loudoun Campbells" and mentions that "Robertson says they must have branched off from Sir George Campbell of Loudoun, who was alive in 1465." However, Paterson continues with "We do not comprehend how this necessity arises." Paterson then adds "The first of the Campbells we notice is" George Campbell (a 1570). However, on 'History of the County of Ayr' (James Paterson, vol 2, 1852, p22), Paterson mentions the marriage of Janet Fullarton to ...
John Campbell of Skeldon
m. (15.02.1505) Janet Fullarton (dau of James Fullarton)
Possibly of the next generation was ...
1. William Campbell, younger of Skeldon
  m. Marion Kennedy (dau of Gilbert Kennedy, 2nd Earl of Cassillis, widow of Thomas MacLellan of Bombie (who d 1547))
  Starting with George (a 1570), Paterson lists several men who are numbered as though they may have been successive lairds but, with just a few exceptions, without narrative to confirm that. The dates given for the documents that identify them indicate that several could have been of the same generation. The following should therefore be viewed as speculative. Possibly of the next generation were ...
  A. George Campbell of Skeldon (a 1570)
  B. Charles Campbell of Skeldon (a 1571-2)
  HJHeraldry (Campbell, vol 2, 'Skeldon', p86) starts with a Charles of Skeldon, whose will was recorded 08.02.1576-7, and shows him as father (with a younger son, William (a 1620)), of David of Skeldon (will recorded 30.05.1622) father of William of Skeldon (d 03.1699) father of George of Skeldon (a 07.1712). Unfortunately, except to confirm that this Charles's successor David was his son, this appears not to support what is given by Paterson.
  i. David Campbell of Skeldon (a 1577, 1588) possibly father (or uncle/brother/cousin) of ...
  a. Charles Campbell of Skeldon (a 1604) apparently succeeded by ...
