215 "Elizabeth Cummins was a strong-willed Englishwoman from London. She was raised by a maiden aunt, who upon her death left Elizabeth one thousand pounds sterling. She set off to America with her inheritance, met and married John Jackson in Cecil County, Maryland. (The legend that she fled England after throwing a tankard of ale at a King's soldier in her aunt's tavern is a little more exciting, but has been fairly well proven to be fanciful.) She is described as being rather masculine in stature, quite intelligent, and as having a great deal of courage and strong character. She fought off Indian attacks and patented 3,000 acres of land in her own name and paid for them herself." Elizabeth Cummins
 
216 Henry II (reigned 1154-89) ruled over an empire
which stretched from the Scottish border to the
Pyrenees. One of the strongest, most energetic and
imaginative rulers, Henry was the inheritor of three
dynasties who had acquired Aquitaine by marriage;
his charters listed them: 'King of the English, Duke
of the Normans and Aquitanians and Count of the
Angevins'. The King spent only 13 years of his
reign in England; the other 21 years were spent on
the continent in his territories in what is now
France. Henry's rapid movements in carrying out
his dynastic responsibilities astonished the French
King, who noted 'now in England, now in
Normandy, he must fly rather than travel by horse
or ship'.

By 1158, Henry had restored to the Crown some
of the lands and royal power lost by Stephen;
Malcom IV of Scotland was compelled to return
the northern counties. Locally chosen sheriffs were
changed into royally appointed agents charged with
enforcing the law and collecting taxes in the
counties. Personally interested in government and
law, Henry made use of juries and re-introduced
the sending of justices (judges) on regular tours of
the country to try cases for the Crown. His legal
reforms have led him to be seen as the founder of
English Common Law.

Henry's disagreements with the Archbishop of
Canterbury (the king's former chief adviser),
Thomas a Becket, over Church-State relations
ended in Becket's murder in 1170 and a papal
interdict on England. Family disputes over territorial
ambitions almost wrecked the king's achievements.
Henry died in France in 1189, at war with his son
Richard who had joined forces with king Philip of
France to attack Normandy. 
King Of England Henry Curtmantle, II
 
217 Known as 'Lex'. Lawrence Xavier Cusack
 
218 Landed in Philly in 1724 or 1725. Charles Davis
 
219 Founder of Montpelier, Vermont. Davis was a farmer and Colonel in the Worcester County militia, served throughout the Revolution, and likely took part in the crossing of the Delaware and attack on Trenton on Christmas, 1776. In 1780 he became involved in acquiring undeveloped land in Vermont, including obtaining the charter for a town he called Montpelier. In 1787 he moved his family to Brookfield, the settled town closest to his undeveloped land. For the next several years he cleared land in Montpelier, becoming its first permanent settler in 1790, and surveying most of the town and laying out its streets. Davis served for several years in the Vermont House of Representatives, and held several local offices including Justice of the Peace. In addition to operating a successful farm, Davis built a grist mill and saw mill. In the early 1800s, creditors obtained judgments against him, which he believed to be unfair, and he was sentenced to "freedom of the yard," which confined him to an area near the Chittenden County jail. Davis moved to Burlington to comply, and lived there for twelve years, refusing all attempts to settle the suits. In 1814 his creditors offered to settle on terms so favorable to Davis that he decided his honor was satisfied, so he accepted. He then prepared to return to Montpelier, but took ill and died before making the journey. Jacob Davis
 
220 Polly was the daughter of Revolutionary War hero and founder of Montpelier, Vermont, Col. Jacob Davis and his wife Rebecca. Mary Davis
 
221 from "History of the town of Montpelier": By Daniel Pierce Thompson 1860 Rebecce Davis. The efficient help-meet of the energetic man whose life and character we have been briefly sketching, is most surely deserving of a separate mention to be passed down to the posterity of the first settlers of Montpelier, with the sketch of her husband. She was born in Oxford, Massachusetts, in the year 1743, married about the year 1765, and died on the 25th of February, 1828. She lies buried by the side of her husband, in this village, where she peacefully passed the last as well as the middle portion of her useful and exemplary life. She early united with the Congregational Church after it was established in this village, and had long been considered a Christian in works, as well as faith, which would have well warranted an earlier public profession of religion. Unusually comely in person, with a sweet smile ever on her lips, kind in disposition, intelligent and discreet, she was the never failing friend of the needy and distressed, the judicious adviser of the young, and the universal object of the love and respect of all classes of the people of the settlement. Of the more than half score of her contemporaries in this town of whom we have made enquiries respecting her character, all most cordially united in affirming, in substance, what we will only quote as the warmly expressed words of one of them: "Mrs. Colonel Davis was one of the best, the very best, women in the whole world!" Indeed she must have truly been a mother in the early Montpelier Isreal, and she has left behind her a name bright with blessed memories. Rebecca Davis
