Notities bij Robert Keyes

"More Keys" by Paralee Keys Hoot, 1983. CT State Library, Hartford, CT929.2 K251ro ho From the Forward, "No one whose blood flows from the wonderful people in this account can fail to be proud of such a heritage. They were good men and women, patriotic, honest, industrious, and , sometimes a little stern and formal. [Probably weren't stern and formal as this is a modern notion about our Puritan ancestors.] They have done much to help make America great, our schools better and they have supported America's religions and the free enterprise system." The name of Keys/Kayes is to be found in several counties inEngland, Scotland, and Wales. English counties of York, Kent, Oxford,Cloushester and Lincoln abound with the name, many of whom were surnamed,"Robert." In Almondbury, Yorkshire, England, lived a Robert Keyes (often foundas Keyes and Keies) who married Anna Flowers whose mother was in directline from King Edward III and others of royal lineage. The daughter of Robert Kayes and Anna was Grace Kayes who married RichardSaltonstall and, by him, had several children, most of whom were born atthe Kayes Manor in Almondbury, York. We have found among DAR recordsthat some American Keyes gave this Robert Kayes as progenitor, claimingthat he was the one who came with Sir Ricahrd Saltonstall in the WinthropFleet to settle Watertown, MA in 1630. Such is NOT the case. The RobertKayes here mentioned died in England some ten years before the Americantrip. The first mentioned Kayes'Keyes in England was found in the earlyyears of the fifteenth century. Recorded history of the family of johnKeyes of that early date brings the family down beyond the date of theAmerican departure of our Robert of Watertown. They were of landedgentry in England. Our Robert must have been a gentleman, also; for hewas granted land adjoining the granted property of Saltonstall on thebanks of the Charles River. The place may never be located per se, butwe know it was near what is now Brattle Street at Harvard Square inCambridge, MA. The name of Robert Keies is to be found at the base of the monumentto Sir Rioachrds Saltonstall at Watertown. There, too, are the names ofthe other first settlers who came in 1630 on the Arabella. A court record in Watertown cites Robert Keyes as having to sit inthe stocks at the town square for having "acted unseemly" towards Mrs.Goody Newell. She, too, was made to sit in the stocks for one hour.When on realized that the behavior of persons was watched with sternsuspicion even to forcing one to sit in stocks for having fallen asleepin church, one may conjecture that Robert's crime must have been no worsethan to have smiled a bit too friendly. It was, however, in 1633 thatsuch punishment was meted out, and Robert had taken a new wife, Sarah, in1632; so the "friendly smile" was less than permissable. The fact that Richard Saltonstall, (later knighted) gathered "somefifty of his family and neighbors" for the American trip somewhatindicates the relationship between Robert and the English family whichruns back to King Edward III. "Robt Key haueing misdemained him self towards Goody Newell byuseemly behaueours & actions towards hir, ye Court ordered him to be settin stocks at Linn an hower with the former and also to sitt in stocks anhower before Lecture att Cambridge upon the fourth day the next month . .. " (From p. 186, Essex Institute Historical Records). Grace, the daughter of the English Robert Kayes, died prior toRichard's sailing for America; so the Saltonstall sons, who came withtheir father, were motherless. Could Robert - possibly a cousin of grace-- have brought motherless chidlren, as well? Was that the bond betweenthem?> Robert was a free man (he had to be to own land). What was hisEnglish background? Was he the Robert who married Elina Coke in KentCounty? (As reported in Vol 1 of the Family Keyes?) When did he partwith the land he owned by grant Watertown? Did he move from Watertown toNewbury in order to be near his son, Solomon? Did he marry francisReynolds, 14 Jan 1589, Dover, Kent, Egnland, Marriage entry #712594868? Names were, at first, descriptive of a man's occupation or place ofresidence. The spelling of the name depended upon its localpronunciation. Thus, the name of Keyes, having originated in England,especially near Almondbury in Yorkshire, indicates that the family livednear a "quay" and the English pronunciation rhymed with "eyes." The namewas spelled "Kayes" or "Kayes" and sometimes found as "Keys" or "Keyes."Upon coming to America, the name sounded the same - K-eyes, and,depending upon the person who was writing it, it was spelled as it washeard. Throughout this work, one can find a trace of name change, thatis to day, a change of spelling. Names such as Keys, Keyes, Keies, Kyes,Keese, or Kayes may descend from the same person. Evidence that Robert arrived on the Ship Arabella in the WinthropFleet is seen on the base of Sir Richards Saltonstall's monument inWatertown, MA, naming those men who were granted land for their part inthe founding of Watertown. The Town Clerk is in possession of theoriginal map showing the land of each. Robert's parcel lay north ofRichard's Saltonstall's. both in the area of brattle Street near HarvardSquare in Cambridge, much of the original Watertown land having beenceded to Cambridge at an early date. Possibly came to America in the Winthrop Fleet with Sir RichardSaltonstall in 1630, along with some fifty of Saltonstall's family andEnglish neighbors. These were the settlers of Watertown, MA. Heprobably married, in England, the mother of the two sons, Solomon andJoseph. She may have died in England or during the trip to America. On the original map of Watertown land owners, Robert Keies is shownowning. A late descdendant, Robert Kyes of Wollaston, MA., located theinformation that Robert bought this land from a William Wilcox. There is a record of Robert's marriage to Sarah in Watertown in1632. He moved to Newbury, MA, supposedly after disposing of the landupon his arrival in the new country. The children were likely reared inNewbury. The births of the last two children are recirded in Newbury, MA.Robert's death is recorded at Watertown, Newbury, Plymouth, and Sudbury.Robert moved to Sudbury, MA 16 July 1645. He d. there in 1647, accordingto Watertown record. His widow m. John Gaye in 1658. Ms. Hoot assigned Solomon and Joseph, both born in England to Robertas sons. There is no proof.
