In 1639, Franciscus Douthy, an English clergyman of Taunton, Mass., remov ed
to Long Island in 1641. Having come to New England, at the time of t he
persecution in England.  He betook himself under the protection of t he

freedom of conscience, which he unexpectedly missed in New England.

In 1642.  The Director granted and conveyed to him an absolute patent wi th
manoral privileges.  He added some families to his settlement, at Maspe th, L.
I., in the course of a year, but the war breaking out, they were a ll driven
off their lands, some were killed - and almost all they had w as lost.  They
fled as all refugees did, to Manhattan, and Master Douthy w as  minister
there.  He was without means and his land was seized by the D irector;  Douthy
appealed but the Director said there was no appeal, his d ecision must be
final, and for his remarks, Doughty was sentenced to impri sonment 24 hours,
and to pay 25 Guilders.  The deed was for 6,666 acr es of land, at Maspeth,

Margaret Douglas
Countess of Lennox
click for larger versionMargaret Douglas, Countess of Lennox (October 8, 1 515
- March 7, 1578) was the daughter of Archibald Douglas, 6th Earl of An gus,
and Margaret Tudor, (daughter of Henry VII of England and widow of Ja mes IV
of Scotland) Margaret was born at Harbottle Castle, Northumberlan d. Because
of her nearness to the English crown, Lady Margaret Douglas w as brought up
chiefly at the English court in close association with the f uture queen Mary
I of England, who remained her fast friend throughout lif e. She was high in
the favour of her cousin, King Henry VIII of England, b ut was twice
disgraced; first for an attachment to Lord Thomas Howard, w ho died in the
Tower of London in 1537, and again in 1541 for a similar af fair with Sir
Charles Howard, brother of Queen Catherine Howard. In 1544 s he married a
Scottish exile, Matthew Stewart, 4th Earl of Lennox (1516-157 1), who was
regent of Scotland in 1570-157I. During Mary’s reign, the coun tess of Lennox
had rooms in Westminster Palace; but on the accession of El izabeth I, she
moved to Yorkshire, where her home at Temple Newsam beca me a centre for Roman
Catholic intrigue. She succeeded in marrying off h er son Henry Stewart, Lord
Darnley, to Mary I of Scotland. In 1566 she w as sent to the Tower, but after
the murder of Darnley in 1567 she was rele ased. She denounced Mary, but was
eventually reconciled with her daughter- in-law. In 1574 she again aroused
Elizabeth’s anger by the marriage of h er other son, Charles, Earl of Lennox,
with Elizabeth Cavendish, daught er of the Earl of Shrewsbury. She was sent to
the Tower with Lady Shrewsbu ry, but was pardoned after her son’s death in
1577. Her diplomacy large ly contributed to the future succession of her
grandson, James VI of Scotl and, to the English throne.

The Lennox jewel, made for Lady Lennox as a memento of her husband, was bo
ught by Queen Victoria in 1842.
