The MURRAY-TOLLEMAGHE-PARKE-DARE family tree is a complex and fascinating tree. There are links that go back to Gregory CROMWELL - husband of Elizabeth SEYMOUR, whose sister Jane was wife to Henry VIII. The tree starts with William MURRAY, the whipping boy of King Charles I. In the ensuing generations, there are stories of fortunes made and lost, of pirates, and bigamous marriages. In short, practically everything that could have happened to this family, from the noble, merchant and seafaring classes, did. The full extent of the links between them can also be seen at Rootsweb

Update July 13, 2015. I have made a significant number of updates to this family tree. Since I cannot take the time right now to totally redesign the page, I have simply added an alternate tree beneath this one. It does not include as much detail, but it does have the advantage of additional dates, and has been constructed using hperlinks. This makes it possible to link back to the rootsweb version of the tree, and see all my up-to-date source material. A fascinating novel based on the life of Elizabeth Murray aka Countess Dysart, was written by Anita Seymour: Royalist Rebel.

Updated & hyperlinked Version of tree - 2015:

Descendants of Elizabeth Tollemache aka Countess Dysart


I have highlighted beneath the one link in the family tree that I cannot prove beyond a shadow of a doubt. It is based on research done in the early 1900s by William Ball WRIGHT in a tree that he prepared for Amelia Lydia DARE.

    2 William TOLLEMACHE b: 1662 c: Feb 1662 d: 25 May 1691

      + Elizabeth BLOOMFIELD

        3 Nicholas TOLLEMACHE b: Abt 1687

It is the version of the family tree which was supported by Amy Oliver LLOYD, a daughter of Sir Thomas JACKSON (1841-1915) and Amelia Lydia DARE. The version above shows William TOLLEMACHE having a secret marriage with an Elizabeth BACON, daughter of Nicholas BACON, not with Elizabeth BLOOMFIELD, a farmer's daughter.

[3] William MURRAY . 

Charles's whipping boy was his close friend William Murray, so recorded in 1715 by Gilbert Burnet in History of his own time:

  • William Murray was the “whipping boy” of King Charles I.  SOURCE: recorded in 1715 by Gilbert Burnet in History of his own time: "William Murray of the bed-chamber, that had been whipping boy to King Charles the first”. NOTE: This custom seems strange to our modern ears, but the whipping boy was usually a close friend of a prince, hence perfect for the post. The idea being that the prince would do less wrong if the person he cared about were to be the one receiving punishment. The custom came about by a confluence of thoughts about the divine right of kings, with the Old Testament concept of a scapegoat.

·        Perhaps the beatings paid off. After all, in 1626, William MURRAY moved into the palatial Ham House, and then King Charles created the title of Earl of Dysart (pronounced "Die-z't") for him. Before then, he had represented Fowey and East Looe in the English House of Commons. William was made Lord Huntingtower at the same time, also in the Peerage of Scotland. He was succeeded by his daughter, Elizabeth, the second Countess. In 1670 she resigned the peerage and received a new grant thereof by patent with precedency of her father, and with remainder to her heirs of the body, failing which to her heirs whatsoever., SOURCE:  Wiki, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earl_of_Dysart

DESCRIPTION: Manors of Ham and Petersham: these manors were demised by the Crown to William Murray, only son of William Murray, minister of Dysart, Fife. William (the son) was introduced to court by his uncle Thomas, tutor to Charles I while Prince of Wales and afterwards his secretary. Shortly after Charles I's accession William Murray was appointed one of the Gentlemen of the Bedchamber (Manning & Bray, History of Surrey 1804, vol 1, p304). The grant of the manors of Ham and Petersham in 1636/7 was a further mark of royal favour which culminated in 1643 in the creation of the Earldom of Dysart and Barony of Huntingtower in Scotland. Since, however, the warrant was not passed under the Great Seal during Charles' lifetime, the title was never used officially by William Murray.  He was succeeded c.1654 by his elder daughter Elizabeth who had married c.1647 Sir Lionel Tollemache, 3rd bart, of Helmingham, Suffolk. Sir Lionel died 1668/9 and his wife, Countess of Dysart in her own right, in 1698, when she was succeeded by their eldest son Lionel, 4th bart and 3rd Earl (The Complete Peerage). Thence the earldom of Dysart and the lordship of the manors of Ham and Petersham descended together in the Tollemache family until the twentieth century.) died 1655.

·        Helmingham and the Tollemache family have been together for many hundreds of years. The Hall and the old oak trees that you see today have seen much of the history of England pass before them, and many generations of this family. The Tollemache family has lived in Suffolk from shortly after the Norman Conquest to the present day. Their home for the first 400 years was at Bentley, near lpswich, and although there was a proud boast, Before the Normans into England came, Bentley was my seat and Tollemache my name, it seems now certain that the family came over from Avranches on the Normandy coast. Their name was spelt Talemache, meaning 'purse bearer', and it is recorded that Hugh Tollemache was Purse Bearer to Henry 1.  They remained at Bentley as squires and knights throughout the turbulent years of those early centuries, fighting for both Henry II against the Welsh and Edward I against the Scots and quite often against their neighbours to retain their lands, Two Tollemache knights from Bentley fought at the Battle of Crécy against the French in 1346.  However, in 1487, John Tollemache married Elizabeth Joyce, the heiress of Helmingham, and his son Lionel also married a Joyce. further cementing the union, and so they moved to Helmingham where the Joyce family home of Creke Hall stood. John Tollemache and his wife proceeded to pull this down and build Helmingham, completed in 1510, as it stands today. surrounded by its deep moat, serene gardens and deer park.  It must have been some years after my family moved to Helmingham that they started work on the gardens, but old maps and drawings show that the original shape of the main walled garden predates the house by many years; it was most probably of Saxon origin and constructed to protect stock from marauders. There was a wooden palisade to protect the garden from the deer until the present garden wall was built in 1745.

Perth [S., 1643] on 4 June 1698. In 1702 he declined an English barony when Queen Anne was crowned., www.thepeerage.com

·        Lionel Tollemache, 3rd Earl of Dysart (30 January 1649 – 23 February 1727 n.s.), styled Lord Huntingtower from 1651 to 1698, was a British Tory Member of Parliament and nobleman.    Dysart was the son of Sir Lionel Tollemache, 3rd Baronet, and Elizabeth, 2nd Countess of Dysart. Educated at Queens' College, Cambridge, Lionel succeeded to his father's baronetcy in 1669. The encumbrance of his paternal estate by debt bred in him a habit of frugality which was not shed in later years. In 1673, he contested Suffolk as a Tory; defeated by Sir Samuel Barnardiston, 1st Baronet, he had the return falsified by the sheriff, Sir William Soame, and took his seat in Parliament. An election committee declared Barnardiston elected, and he obtained 1,000 pounds damages from Huntingtower in a suit before the King's Bench, but the verdict was overturned by the Court of Exchequer Chamber. Huntingtower was made a freeman of Eye in 1675. He briefly served as Member of Parliament for Orford in 1679 as a member of the Habeas Corpus Parliament. In 1685, he was again returned for that borough and made portman of Orford, an office he held until about 1709. On 30 September 1680, he married Grace Wilbraham, the daughter and coheir of Sir Thomas Wilbraham, 3rd Baronet. They had five children.

·       Huntingtower went out of Parliament again upon the fall of James II. However, he was returned for Suffolk in 1698, and generally supported Tory principles. In that year, he succeeded his mother to become Earl of Dysart. In 1702, he was appointed Vice-Admiral of Suffolk and became (until 1716) a freeman of Dunwich, and in 1703, he was appointed Lord Lieutenant of Suffolk. He was also named High Steward of Ipswich that year, an office he held until his death. As Lord Lieutenant, he purged moderate Churchmen from lieutenancy offices. He was Mayor of Orford during the summer of 1704. His support for the "Tack" of the Occasional Conformity Bill led to his removal from his county offices in 1705. Campaigning on the basis of his support for the Tack, he was returned for Suffolk again in 1705. As a Scottish peer, he was forced to leave the House of Commons by the Acts of Union 1707. He was offered a barony in the Peerage of Great Britain by Queen Anne upon her accession, but declined.[ Predeceased by his only son in 1712, Dysart remained a Tory, and was considered a possible Jacobite, until his death in 1727. He was succeeded by his grandson Lionel Tollemache, 4th Earl of Dysart.) He married GRACE WILBRAHAM 30 Sep 1680 SOURCE: Wiki, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lionel_Tollemache,_3rd_Earl_of_Dysart .

Erin Cottage February 17, 1909 Wynberg."),

  • CAPTAIN TOLLEMACHE was born 1663 the youngest son of the Duchess of Lauderdale by her first husband. Sir Lionel Tollemache of Helmington, Suffolk. When in Paris in 1681 he had a duel with the Hon. William Carnegie and wounded him mortally with his sword. Arrested by the French authorities, he was tried at the Castalet leger and only escaped by a fine of £2,000 paid by his mother. He was outlawed and seems to have made his way  to Genoa, and after a couple of years joined the Fleet at Tangiers, which had gone to take away the Garrison and hand the place over to the Sultan. His outlawry having been  reversed, he was pardoned by the House of Lords and came home.

On January 4th 1685 he deposed (c.f. Colonial s.p. vol. IV 33.1.11) before Governor William Stapleton, that a month past he went with others from Barbados on private enterprise in trade, and in sight of "Saltertudas" (a French sloop) ordered them to strike and plundered the vessel - after a few days discharged.

On August 20th 1685 Stede the Deputy Governor of Barbados wrote:

"Mr. W. Tollemache, son of the Duchess of Lauderdale, who killed the purser of H..1.S. Diamond, is here on bail and begs to be brought to trial as soon as possible. I therefore granted. a special commission and summoned two juries. With due respect to his quality and to the justice of the cause. He was found guilty of manslaughter only. He was allowed benefit of clergy and he chose to be burnt in the hand to save him from being appealed. to England."

Colonial State Papers, letters to Lords of Trade and Plantations.

The King granted him a commission as Lieutenant of the "Woolwich" on October 5th 1688. He became Captain of the "Lark" the following December, and of the "Berkeley Castle" in 1689. As Captain of H.M.S. Jersey -8 guns - he went to the  West Indies in November 1690. On May 16th 1691 he accompanied the expedition under Admiral Laurence Wright against Guadaloupe. He seems to have been attacked by yellow fever on the way back, and died on May 25th at the age of 28 either at sea or at Antigua. The arrears of pay  were paid to Mr. Cox by letter of the Duchess of Lauderdale 1693. SOURCE: Amy Oliver LLOYD.

  • The father (or grandfather) of SARAH PARKE - GEORGE DARE had obtained all proofs of the legitimacy of the secret marriage, and all other descendants, and was on his way to London to put it in the hands of a lawyer with every chance of being given his lawful inheritance of both property and money. When on the way back by coach, he and his wife were  taken ill with smallpox at Saffron Walden, and both died. The Landlord of the inn, fearing infection, had all their luggage burnt, and with it all the irreplaceable legal documents.
    His son was so disgusted that he would no longer remain in England and went to South Africa and settled on a farm with his wife, nee Bush. But he had to leave as  Kaffirs rose and killed everyone and destroyed the whole place. In escaping he was thrown out of a cart and badly injured from which he never properly recovered.

·    Oct 23 email from Edward Walthew, Anna Maria PARKE was William Parke’s (b. 1790) sister born at Saffron Walden in 1788. She married William KIDSON of Staindrop, Durham, at St Pauls, Shadwell London about 1807. Then she and their family emigrated to south Africa in 1819 with the WILSON Party, settling at Bathurst in the Cape province. they were later joined by her younger brother William ... One of their daughters has Tollemache" as her second name. There are also a number of other interesting second names given to their children which I suspect is more likely to have come via the PARKE family

[42] William KIDSON See entry under his wife, Anna Maria PARKE.

[43] William Tollemache PARKE

·        Amy Lloyd's Family History, In the Saffron Walden baptisms, he is listed as a carpenter.,

·        2007 Oct 23 email from Edward Walthew, It is interesting that:  Samuel Parke is listed as  a Brandy and wine merchant  William Parke establishes a hotel in Cape Town  William Kidson is listed as a Wine merchant as well as a farmer in the Cape  Elizabeth Parke married John Pilcher who appears to have been running a pub in Stepney.

·         Heather McAllister email: he and his wife became the owners of Parkes Hotel which eventually became the famous Grand Hotel in Cape Town 

·        PARKE   William Parke was the son of Joseph Parke, born 27.11.1742 Stoke by Nayland, and died  3.9.1821 Saffron Walden. Reg. Parish Churches; and of his wife Elizabeth daughter of John  Talmash of New Place (formerly Gyppeswick Hall) Ipswich, who died 19.5.1777 aged 66.   Reg. Parish Church Stoke by Nayland.  

·        William Parke and his wife had, besides Mary Bush who married Captain James Sedgwick, five other daughters: Elizabeth - John Tyars, whose descendants live in the Union.   Anne Buncher - Captain Henry Wilson of the Mercantile Marine.   Sarah Shrive - Captain Dare of the Honbl. East India Company. As far as I know there are no descendants in the Union. Their daughter married Sir Thomas Jackson, Baronet, General Manager of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank.   Eliza Lake - Captain William Walker Ball of the Honbl. East India Company. A pleasant account of her and of Captain Ball may be read in the Memoirs and Reminiscences of Sir John Kotze. Many of their descendants remain in the Union. Two of their daughters married overseas: Anne Elizabeth to Major Archibald Arbuthnot son of Sir William Arbuthnot, Bt., and of his wife Gertrude Sophia daughter of Viscount Gough. And Emily Lydia to Charles Francis Henry Spencer, grandson of Viscount Churchill. Lydia Hurst - John Philipson Stowe (uncle of the first baronet, who also married a Capetonian,  Florence Henchman). They have descendants in the Union. William Parke and Elizabeth also had an only son, Joseph. He ran away, it was surmised  to sea, and was not again heard of.   When William Parke brought his family back to the Cape after the disaster at Grahamstown he had intended to take ship for England, his small capital having been expended. He was, however, persuaded to stay, and in order to make a livelihood he and his wife took in paying guests. This venture developed into their launching forth into the hotel trade, and they opened Parke's Hotel at the corner of Strand Street. This hotel became known in course of time as the Grand Hotel, which still exists.  
An amusing story is told of William Parke, amusing at this long distance of time, but it gives some idea of the terror that prevailed in Grahamstown. His daughters were handsome young women, or rather girls, and it was brought to his ears that the Kaffir Chief then besieging the town had made it known that he would have his choice among them when he got into the town. William Parke ordered his six daughters to accompany him to the powder magazine where he made them kneel down in a row and swear to accompany him there again to be blown up with the magazine should the Kaffirs succeed in entering the town. Fortunately this histrionic effort proved to be unnecessary.

·        The DARE family have a slightly different version of the story of the PARKE family under siege than the one from Heather McAllister - but the core of it is the same. The father feared for the safety of his daughters and would rather see them dead than abused at the hands of assailants.  The DARE family version is that a gun was given to the eldest daughter and should they be overrun, that she was to shoot her sisters and then herself rather than be at the (less than mercy) of their assailants. At the time, they were on the other side of the river from the relative safety of the white settlement, possibly outside Elizabethville.  William PARKE was injured while escaping and went down to Capetown and bought property outside Capetown.

[50] James SEDGEWICK

·        James began his career as a mid-shipman in the Honourable East India Company and commanded his first ship in 1833. At the time of his marriage he is described as of the ship Addingham and an additional reference to a Captain Sedgwick of the three masted schooner The Osprey may relate to him. His last command was of the Lady Valiant in 1856. The merchant service of the East India Company ceased in 1834 so it must be assumed that James worked in another capacity. He was the author of two books - "Golden Hints to Young Mariners" and "The True Principle of the Law of Storms" both used at 'Greenwich Nautical College'.    He settled in Cape Town and in 1859 he founded James Sedgwick and Company which traded in wines and spirits.    In 1851 Mary and the children are living in Bootle, Lancashire

·        Of Sedgwicks Wholesale Wine and Spirit Merchants. One can still today buy Sedgwicks Old Brown Sherry. Captain James Sedgwick, father of Arnold Wilhelm Spilhaus's wife, and founder of the Cape family of Sedgwick, was descended from the Sedgwick's of Dent in the West Riding of Yorkshire, where the family had been identified with the district for several centuries. An account of the family will be found in the Life and Letters of Professor Adam Sedgwick, Fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge. Professor Adam was also of Dent, and cousin to Captain James. Professor Adam Sedgwick, junior, nephew of Professor Adam, senior, visited the Cape in the last generation, bent upon scientific enquiry. The son of Professor Adam, junior, Mr. Romney Sedgwick, recently held office as Deputy High Commissioner in the Union of South Africa for His Majesty's Government.

·        Captain James was one of a large number of brothers and sisters. Three of his brothers also made some mark. Thomas, in the service of the Honourable East India Company, died in Bombay at the age of 28, "but not before he had earned the thanks of the Honourable Company for his services in promoting the growth of mulberry trees, and thus encouraging the production of silk." Charles went to Boston, U.S.A., where his descendants still live, and became prominent in the journalistic world. William entered the medical profession, and was a medical student at the then new University College Hospital where, by the particular desire of the great surgeon Lister, he was appointed Lister's dresser, and as such assisted him at the first operation in London performed under anaesthetics, December 21st, 1846. As a result of impaired health he made several voyages to the East, via the Cape, as surgeon to the troops. It gave him the opportunity of studying cholera in its worst forms, and when in 1854 London was visited by an epidemic of cholera he gave distinguished service. He made a number of important contributions to the medical literature of his day. After Captain James Sedwick had retired from sea and settled in Cape Town he founded the firm of James Sedgwick and Company, wholesale wine and spirit merchants. He was the author of The True Principle of the Laws of Storms and of Hints to Young Mariners. SOURCE: Heather McALLISTER.

[78] George Julius DARE

·        Captain George Julius Dare was a well known Singaporean. He had been a navigating officer, in those days called the master in the Navy, and married at the Cape when on the Station. His grandfather, Mr. Julius, then helped him to build a vessel of his own, and he afterwards built others, trading out to China with three different vessels of his own. In this year he was passing through Singapore, on his way from Bombay to China, and left his wife on shore at a boarding house kept by Mrs. Clarke at the south west corner of North Bridge road and Middle Road, where the baby Julius, who has been mentioned, was born. About two months afterwards Mrs. Dare left in the unfortunate Viscount Melbourne for Macao, with the two children, to join her husband there. Captain Dare sold his vessel for a very handsome price, remitting home the money at the exchange of about six shillings to a dollar! In 1845 he went home, and returned and settled down in Singapore in February 1848. These particulars are found in the evidence he gave in favour of Sir James Brooke, on the famous enquiry related under the year 1854. He commenced business in Singapore as a shipchandler and commission agent in the Square. There were then four shipchandlers' firms, namely, W.S. Duncan, John Steel & Co., Whampoa & Co., and Mr. Dare.
…In 1855 Mr. Dare went to England, leaving a man in charge, whose name there is no necessity to mention. He was a very plausible man, with a particularly pleasant manner, but he turned out untrustworthy and ruined the business, as well as his employer. Mr. Dare died in London, 50 years of age in 1856. He had a family of nine children, one of his daughters married Mr. William Ramsay Scott; another Captain C.J. Bolton, very well known and a great favourite in Singapore, who commanded Jardine Matheson & Co.'s crack opium schooner, and when steam came, the Glenartney. He is now living in Essex. Another daughter was married to Mr. Whitworth Allen who was in Singapore and Penang for many years, now retired from business. Another to Mr. Jackson, now Sir Thomas Jackson K.C.M.G., of the Hongkong and Shanghai Bank; and another daughter to Dr. William Hartigan of Hongkong.

·        George Julius Dare married Sarah Shrieve Parke in 1839. He was in the Royal Navy and when his ship was in Capetown, met Sarah Parke of Newlands, Rondebosch. She and her sister were married on the same day, the sister to Captain Sedgwick of the ship "Addingham". Among the visitors present were Sir Harry and Lady Smith. Soon after his marriage, George Julius left the Navy to command a ship in the fleet of his uncles who were trading in the East. He became a partner and his headquarters were in Singapore. When they had two children, his wife went out to join him in the sailing ship "Viscount Melbourne", she was the only woman on board. A few days out from Singapore the ship was wrecked on the Luconia Shoal in the China Sea. Everyone abandoned ship in rive boats. They were attacked by pirates but managed to get away, and after great hardships in an open boat for thirteen days, were picked up and brought to Singapore. The youngest son, Julius, was thought dead and nearly dropped in the sea but the ship came just in time. Years after in Japan she died nursing him of cholera end both were buried in the Cemetary at Yokahama in 1879. The family returned to England from Singapore when Captain Dare was suffering from severe blood poisoning of the hand. They lived at Upper Clapham till he died. His widow then went back to South Africa with seven of her children, leaving George and Julius the two eldest who were at school, with their Aunt Pell. They afterwards went out to Singapore in business , and later to Japan where their mother and remaining unmarried children joined them. SOURCE: Amy LLoyd's notes:
