     BIRTH     1610, Bethersden, Ashford Borough, Kent, England
     DEATH     Jun 1652 (aged 41–42), Lancaster County, Virginia, USA
     Anne Lovelace was born about 1610 in Bethersden, Kent, England. She was the daughter of a knight, Sir William Lovelace (1583-1627) and Katherine Ann (Barne) Lovelace (1587-1633). Anne was also the sister of at least 2 brothers who became known, Governor Francis Lovelace of New York. Appointed Deputy Governor of Long Island and in 1668 became Governor of New York 1668-1673, until the city was captured by the Dutch 30 July 1673. Served as a Colonel for forces loyal to Charles I during the English Civil War. He died in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, United Kingdom. Another famous brother was Sir Richard Lovelace Richard Lovelace was an English Nobleman and poet. His "Lucasta" poems brought him fame., English poet, a country gentleman and a justice of the peace. He died in London, England. She was also the sister of Thomas Lovelace who died in Staten Island Plantation, New York, Colonial America. William Lovelace, VI died in Carmarthenshire, Wales, United Kingdom. Capt. Dudley Lovelace died in Woolwich, Kent, England, United Kingdom. Anne also had 2 sisters: Joanna (Johanna) Lovelace died in St Catherines, London, England and Elizabeth Lovelace who died in England.
     Anne married Rev. Dr. John Gorsuch in Wicocomico, Northumberland, England in 1628. John was the son of Daniel Gorsuch and Alice (Hall) Gorsuch. John and Anne set up home in London. John Gorsuch received his Doctorate of Divinity Degree from Cambridge University and became the Rector of Walkern. John Gorsuch became Rector of Walkern (Walkhorne) Parish (in Hertford Parish), Hertfordshire, England July 28, 1632, his father having purchased this rectory for him. Four years after their marriage the young couple settled at the new parsonage house in Walkern. John Gorsuch subsequently received his Mandate for Presentment, instituting him as Rector, signed and sealed on behalf on King Charles.
     Rev. John and Alice (Lovelace) Gorsuch were the parents of the following known children: Katharine (Gorsuch) Whitby, David Gorsuch, William Gorsuch, John Gorsuch, Jr., Robert Gorsuch, Anne (Gorsuch) Todd, Richard Gorsuch, Joanna Gorsuch, Frances (Gorsuch) Sisson, Elizabeth (Gorsuch) Howard, Charles Gorsuch, Lovelace Gorsuch and Mary (Gorsuch) Keene.
     In the book "Ancestral study of four families, Roberts, Griffith, Cartwright, Simpson: covering lineal and collateral relations of my child", it states that Anne is the daughter of Sir William and Ann (Barne) Lovelace of Woolwidge, England and the granddaughter of Sir William Lovelace of Bethersden, Kent, England. States that she married Rev. John Gorsuch D.D., and their daughter, Ann Gorsuch married Captain Thomas Todd. Page 854 in this book.
     In the book "To Maryland from Overseas" on page 85, it states that Anne was the wife of John Gorsuch, Rector of Walkorne , Hertfordshire as a widow with her children emigrated to the America colony of Virginia.
     Notes on ancestry.com: She received under her father's will, dated 1622, "all my adventures in the East India Company with all the profits to be paid to her at the age of 21 or marriage". By her mother's will, dated 1v-32, there is left to "Anne Gorsuch my daughter my third suit of diaper which I made in the Low countries". She went to Virginia, probably about 1650 and soon after the death of her husband, with her younger children and died there (Va. Mag. xxiv; 90). ... She had issue by her husband Rev. John Gorsuch, eleven children whose fortunes and descendants have been traced by the writer in the preceding volumes of this magazine; viz.: (i) Daniel; (ii) John; (iii) William; (iv) Katherine married William Whitby; (v) Robert; (vi) Richard; (vii) Anna married 1st Capt. Thomas Todd, 2nd Capt. David Jones, 3d Capt. John Oldton; (viii) Elizabeth married Howell Powell; (ix) Charles; (x) Lovelace; (xi) Frances) Of these, Katharine, Robert, Richard, Anna, Elizabeth, Charles and Lovelace settled in Virginia or in Maryland, married, and with the probable exception of Robert, left numerous descendants (Va. Mag. xxiv-xxvii).
     Anne and her family are also mentioned in the book "Pedigrees of Some of the Emperor Charlemagne's Descendants. Volume I" on page 189-190.
     Anne died 1652 in LancasterCounty, Virginia, at age 41 early in the year.

     Sir William (V) Lovelace of Woolwich, Kent was born before 12 February 1584 at co. Kent, England.2 He was christened on 12 February 1583/84 at St. Alphege, Canterbury, co. Kent, England.2,6 He married Anne Barne, daughter of Sir William Barne and Anne Sandys, circa 1610;
Her 1st husband.7
Sir William (V) Lovelace of Woolwich, Kent died on 12 August 1627 at Siege of Grolle, Grolle, Netherlands;
Per Genealogics: "died in battle"
From Wikipedia:
     "The Siege of Grol in 1627 was a battle between the Army of the Dutch Republic commanded by Frederick Henry, Prince of Orange and the Spanish controlled fortified city of Grol (now known as Groenlo), during the Eighty Years War and the Anglo–Spanish War in 1627. The Spanish army led by Hendrik van den Bergh came to relieve Grol, but it came too late. The siege lasted from 20 July until 19 August 1627, resulting in the surrender of the city to the army of the United Provinces.[2]
     "During the siege, a-16 kilometer-long circumvallation line was made around Grol in order to prevent the enemy from leaving and to prevent liberation of the city from the outside. Ambrosio Spinola had used a similar technique during the Siege of Breda (1624), and after the successful siege of Grol Frederic-Henry would later use it in other sieges in the Netherlands, such as at the Siege of 's-Hertogenbosch. The success at Grol provided the first serious victory on land for the Republic after the Twelve Years' Truce.
1. About Grol[3][4]
     "Even though it was only a small city, Grol was of military strategic importance. Grol was a flourishing trade center, well fortified and armed, and it had a strategic position on the Hanseatic trade route to Germany. The area around Grol was marshy and difficult to reach, and anyone in control of the city was in control of the region. Maurice of Nassau had taken Grol in 1597, after an unsuccessful try in 1595, and Spinola retook it in 1606. Maurice tried to take Grol again, later during the same year, again unsuccessful, after which Grol remained in Spanish hands until 1627.
     "Grol provided a defensible place to garrison troops and a freehaven for Spanish raids. Heavy taxes and import duties were collected here from the whole of the Achterhoek and Veluwe, which provided a steady source of income for the Spanish war treasury. Together with the fortified towns of Oldenzaal, Bredevoort and Lingen, Grol could provide a base for attacking the republic from the east. After Oldenzaal had been captured in 1626 by Ernest Casimir, the States-General chose to invest in an army to capture Grol, instead of concentrating solely on sea battles with the Spaniards (which the powerful states Holland and Zeeland wanted).
2. Prelude[5]
     "The Dutch Army of Frederic-Henry, totaling over 15,000 footmen and 4,000 cavalry, traveled by foot and boat via the Rhine and unloaded behind Emmerich. As was common practice in those days, the army consisted mainly of mercenaries from all over Europe, including Scottish, English, High-German, Frisian and French troops. English forces were under the command of Edward Cecil.[6] The army arrived at Grol on 20 July 1627. Immediately all major roads leading to Grol were blocked by front runners of the cavalry. 1,000 carts brought gunpowder, bullets, 75 guns, food and all the equipment necessary for besieging and taking over a city.
2.1 Circumvallation
     "The 'Engelse Schans' (English fort) built by English troops during the siege of Grol
The next day, thousands of soldiers and hired workers began to speedily build a continuous earthen wall around Grol, 10 feet high, 16 kilometers long. Wooden and earthen ramparts, entrenchments and other fortifications were built along the line, including fortified defenses for the troops (Dutch: Schansen).
     "Frederic-Henry used to let troops of the same nationality work together, so that an English fortification (Engelse Schans) was built by and for the English troops, as well as one for the French, the Frisians and one for the troops from Holland. Guns were placed strategically so that the circumvallation line could be defended from all sides. The reach of the guns placed in Grol was taken into account: they couldn't hit the line which was 2 kilometers from the city. In just 10 days the work was done, though the circumvallation was continually reinforced during the siege.
     "Frederic-Henry was aware that a large Spanish army was stationed in the south of the Netherlands, commanded by Hendrik van den Bergh. To distract the Spanish army and delay its arrival, and thus avoid a battle in the open field where he would be outnumbered, Frederic-Henry carried out a feigned attack; he sent a part of his own army towards the German town of Gogh. Neighbouring villages around Grol were taken by commanders to prevent the Spanish obtaining a foothold in the neighbourhood. Sentries were placed all around the area and supply lines were set up to Deventer and Zutphen, to feed and supply the massive army now lying around Grol.
3. The Siege
3.1 The situation in Grol
     "Matthijs Dulken, a seasoned and wily commander, was the head of the Spanish army occupying Grol. He had available to him 1,200 foot soldiers (not accounting enlisted citizens) and around 100 cavalry, commanded by Lambert Verreyken. Food and supplies aplenty, Dulken ordered his troops to reinforce the defenses of the already fortified city, and specifically: "...by musket or cannonball, to hurt or damage the enemy any which way". With the circumvallation line ready, Grol was being bombarded by the Dutch army while groups of Dutch, English, French troops dug saps towards the city. Damage done to the city's defenses were continually repaired by the besieged. However, 200 incendiary "fireballs" were shot into the city, causing heavy damage to buildings and people. Dulken himself was wounded in his shoulder by a musket bullet and gave command to Verreyken. Verreyken and his cavalry raided the attackers positions, mainly the trench digging positions and the rampart of Ernst Casimir of Nassau-Dietz, without causing many casualties. In Grol, due to the carelessness of a soldier, two barrels of gunpowder exploded, causing forty bystanders to perish.
Activities outside Grol
3.2      "Meanwhile, the English digging team had managed to first reach the canal which lay around Grol and was supplied by the river Slinge. In order to facilitate a crossing, the lock north of the city was blown up, resulting in the lowering of the water in the canal by five feet, which left just nine feet. After that, the Dutch army tried to cross the canal by building a dam, but they were under heavy gunfire from Grol and the dam was fully destroyed by burning oil poured from the city. Finally, with the support of two artillery pieces the attackers managed to build two dams, although casualties were great, including two English officers, Ram and Proud. Having crossed the canal, they could now begin to undermine Grol's outer defensive walls, even though regular attacks were made from out of the city.
3.3 The arrival of Van den Bergh
     "In the meantime, Van den Bergh and his formidable Spanish army had arrived near Groenlo after taking in another 1,800 German mercenaries, now outnumbering the army of his cousin, Frederic Henry. However, due to lack of funding they were short on supplies and had arrived too late for a head to head battle in the open field. They fired their guns for Grol to hear that help had come. After a failed plan to cut the supply lines of the Dutch army, due to quarrels between Spanish and Italian troops, he decided to attack the circumvallation line and try to break through to Grol. His attack on the Scottish rampart seemed to succeed at first, but a fierce counterattack by Officer Morre drove the Spaniards away, erasing all hope for a victory for Van den Bergh.
3.4 Negotiations
     "Frederic-Henry now tried to negotiate with Dulken, by convincing him the Spaniards outside the city could no longer save him. Dulken, who had healed from his wound, proudly denied their entreaties. The siege went on. English troops crossed the canal and managed to put a mine under one of Grol's outer defenses (faussebray). The mine was blown up on August 18, creating a huge hole in the defenses. English troops rushed in, climbing the city's earthen walls behind, but Verreyken lay waiting with hundreds of muskets and burning tar, and he repelled the English three times, causing a massacre. Dulken however, intelligent enough in knowing that soon his city would be attacked from three sides, and realizing that he was short on men and guns, called for an armistice and sent for negotiators.
3.5 The Treaty
     "A treaty like the one used after the Siege of Breda was signed 3 days later, handing the city to the army of the Republic. The Spanish troops in Grol and its citizens were allowed to leave, taking arms and loot with them, but only 2 guns could be taken. Frederic-Henry loaned 200 carts for the defenders to carry their equipment, as was negotiated. He stationed foot soldiers and horsemen in Grol, as to defend it from future attacks. The complete circumvallation line was destroyed and all trenches filled, to prevent them from being used by future attackers. Archbishop of Utrecht Philippus Rovenius, who resided in the city during the siege, was allowed to leave. Grol was now under the Republic and would remain so until the end of the war.
The victory was celebrated greatly in the Republic. The Spaniards had finally been beaten after many losses. Hugo de Groot wrote all the details of the battle in his 'Grollae Obsidio' and Joost van den Vondel wrote a 738 verse ode to the siege. The saying Zo vaste as Grolle (as sturdy as Grolle) came into being, as a reference to the difficulty of taking the city.

     Death:      May 16, 1867, New Castle, Lawrence County, Pennsylvania, USA
     An Aged Citizen Gone,
     We are called upon to chronicle the death of Mr. Robert Reynolds, senior, which took place on Thursday morning of last week, (May 16, 1867) after a long and useful life. The deceased was a native of Hagerstown, Maryland, and immigrated to this section in 1804, when there was but a cabin or two where New Castle now stands. In 1816, he removed to the farm on which he died, in Hickory township*, about two miles east of this borough. The deceased was a good good citizen, a kind neighbor, and an examplary Christian, having been a member of the Methodist Episcopal church for over sixty years and died in the full assurance of a glorious immortality.
     On Wednesday, the 11th of April, 1865, there was a family re-union of all his children, at the old homestead - eight sons and four daughters - met with their venerable father, whose hairs were whitened with the frosts of ninety winters. His oldest child then was sixty-seven, and the youngest forty-one; at that time he had 85 grandchildren, and 55 great-grandchildren, and at the time of his death he had great-great-grandchildren.
     He has gone down to the grave fully ripe for his Master's use. His remains were deposited in Greenwood Cemetery on Saturday, followed by a large concourse of relatives and sympathising friends.
