Col. Gerard 
Fowke
1606 - 1669


Col. Gerard 
Fowke
, Arms: Vert a fleur de lis argent, a mullet for difference. Crest: An Indian goat's head erased argent. The first of this family was Col. Gerard Fowke, an ex-Royalist officer, who came to Virginia in 1651 and settled in Westmoreland county, purchasing lands there in 1657 from Nicholas Meriwether. He was the sixth son of Roger Fowke of Breward and Gunston Hall, Staffordshire. He died in 1669. An old deed, now in the possession of his descendants, has impressed upon it the above arms. He was a Burgess for Westmoreland county in 1663, and in 1664 moved to Maryland, near Port Tobacco, where he took up large grants of land. In 1665 he was a member of the Maryland Assembly and Colonel of Militia for Worcester county. His wife, whom he married in England, was named Ann ---, and they have left numerous descendants in the South. 269. Issue. http://home.att.net/~c.middleton/Fowke1.html Encyclopedia of Virginia biography / Tyler, Lyon G. ed. - New York. - 1915 (5 vols) NB Does anyone know of any problems that exist in the RD 500 line for Gerard Fowke (#231)? I don't have access to that work, but have a synopsis of that line (complete with "Ida", later wife of Roger Bigod, 2nd Earl of Norfolk, not sure where this came from (Douglas?)). Thank you, Dick Ledyard Note that on page xxxvi of RD500, this line is listed as one of those which "merits further study", which might be regarded as a euphemism for "not proven yet, and quite possibly false". The lines on this "merits further study" list should be be regarded with skepticism (and not being on this list is no guarantee that the line is correct). Stewart Baldwin the following must fit in somewhere "Rev. Henry Sanders' account of "The History and Antiquities of Shenstone, in the County of Stafford" (1794) in vol. 9 of _Bibliotheca Topographica Britannica_: 9:172-73: Gerard Fowke was a captain in the royal army in the Civil War under Charles I. and afterwards was, with another gentleman of the same name, and a sufferer in the same cause, whose seat was at Batchacre Grange, obliged to compound for his estate with the usurpers. In 1643-4, the wife of the said captain Gerard Fowke suffered in the loss of her cattle, which were seized by captain H. Stone; to redeem them she was ordered to pay down 30l. January 6, and to advance 20l. more upon the 27th of that month, for a protection; not being able in those troublesome times to raise that sum, 10l. was taken; yet was she again plundered; for February 8 the committee at Stafford, on complaint being made, ordered captain Jackson and lieutenant Hall to restore a horse of hers seized at Gnowsall. On the 17th of September in the same year, four more cattle were taken from her, but restored."
