They "never die" but like to dine

Old soldiers never die," but
they are not at all averse to dining,
especially when they are going to
be able to talk over old times, in a
cordial atmosphere, with men who
have shared with them the good
and bad times of war. Many
Walsall ex-servicemen renewed
acquaintance with wartime
comrades at the reunion dinner of
the Staffordshire Yeomanry at the
Victoria Hotel, Wolverhampton, on

The dinner was attended by a
total of 251 people, including 70
officers. Colonel G. H. Anson,
honorary colonel of the regiment,
presided and congratulated the
organisers on attracting such a
representative gathering.
The present Commanding
Officer, Lieut.-Colonel J. A. Dene

Walsall Observer 05 October 1956 
Dene, Lt-Col John Anthony (I3280)
Philip Howard, the son of Thomas Howard, 4th Duke of Norfolk, and Lady Mary Fitzalan, was born on 28 June 1557 and baptised a few days later with a pomp and circumstance rarely the lot of a commoner. Queen Mary was present and Philip of Spain was his godfather. But his mother did not recover from the birth and died shortly afterwards.

At the age of twelve Philip was betrothed to Anne Dacre, the eldest daughter of his deceased stepmother, and two years later they were married. By this time his father was in the Tower and, in 1572, executed. After his father's beheading and attainder, he lost the title of Earl of Surrey.

In 1572 he went to Cambridge and spent two years there, receiving the degree of MA. At the age of eighteen he went to Court where he fell for 'the allurements of corrupted immodest young women wherewith the Court in those days did much abound'. With this came the ill-treatment of his wife, whom he more or less abandoned. When his maternal grandfather died in 1580, he inherited the title of Earl of Arundel and the increase of his responsibilities may have been the reason which sobered him.

He became a practising Catholic, but at first kept his conversion secret. However, his wife, his favourite sister, an aunt and an uncle had preceded him. Aware of the dangers, he resolved to escape from the country and live quietly abroad. He sent his secretary, John Momford, to Hull to enquire about engaging a ship for Flanders. However, before Momford could get a passage, he was arrested and brought back to London.

Queen Elizabeth then invited herself to Arundel House where Philip provided a sumptuous banquet, at the end of which the Queen declared her satisfaction, 'gave him many thanks for her entertainment there and informed him that he was imprisoned in his own house'. The next day he was interrogated by the Privy Council on the matter of his religious beliefs.

After he was released, he tried again to leave for the continent but was betrayed by Walsingham's agents. Boarding a ship which was intercepted, he was committed to the Tower. On 15 May 1586 he was called to the Star Chamber and arraigned on three specific points: that he had attempted to leave the realm without licence of the Queen, that he had been reconciled to the Church of Rome, that he was plotting with foreign powers in order to be restored as Duke of Norfolk. The latter accusation was dropped as there was no evidence but he did not deny the first two charges, neither of which were treason. He was fined £10,000 and imprisoned during the 'Queen's pleasure', which turned out to be a life sentence.

Aged thirty-eight he died of dysentery in 1595, a prisoner of conscience, having lost everything: his titles, his estates, his houses, all his worldly possessions; having never seen his son and having been forcibly separated from his wife for over ten years. 
Howard, Philip Earl of Surrey (I18521)
Thomas (1406) of Loxley Esq married Dorothy, daughter of Sir Phillipp Draycott (or Draycote) Kt of Paynesley, Staffordshire., by whom he had eleven children On the death of his grandfather in 1539 he took over the Manor of Marchington, near Loxley, and died in 1592. Presumably this happened at Badger, as it was recorded on a white marble slab in Badger church, which is no longer visible. In 1577 he granted his son Anthony the Manor of Badger with other local properties to the use of his wife Dorothy; the settlement was witnessed by his brother George. Interestingly, this was the earliest Kynardesley of Loxley recorded in the 1663 Visitation of Staffordshire, although the family were at :Loxley from at least the 14th century and the Tree purports to go back to the Conquest.

Issue of Thomas Kynardesley (1406) and Dorothy Draycott:

Elizabeth (1301) was married to John Combes (or Comes) of Stafford and died without issue. From a portrait of her (or her sister Ellen) dated 1596 when she was 47, she could have been born in 1549.

Anthony (1302) of Loxley married Isabell, daughter and co-heir of Lewis or Lodowick Walker of Bramshall, near Loxley, who died in 1624 or 1626. There were three children of the marriage. Anthony’s will was dated August 1622, when he was sick, and he died in that year. He wished to be buried in the church at Uttoxeter.
Anthony was recorded in the 1583 Visitation of Staffordshire, for the Hundred of Totmanslow, as a gentleman whose Arms were ‘Argent, a fesse vaire or and gules between three eagles displayed of the last’ These Arms were borne by the Dethicks of Lee, Derbyshire, and were not those of the Kynardsleys of Herefordshire from whom the Family Tree claims descent.
CSK has a portrait in the style of George Gower (c1540-1596) which is said to be of him, showing a man in Elizabethan dress with big legs walking with a sword in hand, aged 46 in 1596, so born in 1550. On the reverse of a photograph of the portrait it is described as of Anthony Kynnersley of Loxley and Badger, born 1580, died 1621, a great pedestrian, and because he was descended from the Baggesoures was commonly given the alias Baggesowwre; the date 1580 should surely read 1550, as above. He was said to have walked from Badger to Loxley, some 28 miles in a bee line, in a day; perhaps that was why he carried a sword?
Above his portrait are the arms of Dethick and Petitt, under the Kynnersley greyhound crest. Although his grandmother Dorothy Petitt was armigerous, his Dethick ancestor was Joane, who was married to John (2002), seven generations earlier, and all the intervening ancestors’ wives were also armigerous, so why portray the Dethick arms, and more especially why not show those of Kynnersley of Herefordshire? The explanation may be the same as that proffered above on the arms and crest of John (1409), his first cousin once removed, which are the same as those in the portrait.

Edward (1303) of Cleobury, Shropshire, married Jane, daughter of Richard Johnson of Chester, at Cleobury North in 1610, and they had eight children. He was the progenitor of the Kynnersleys of Cleobury, for whom see Annexure C.

Nicholas (1304) and Phillip (1305) died without issue.

Ralph (1306) of Bridgenorth, Shropshire, married Ellen, daughter of Edward Hayward of that town, by whom he had a son.

Ellen (1307), Hellen (1308), and Margaret (1309) died without issue.
Ellen may not have married, according to a note on the back of a photo of the portrait dated 1596 which is attributed above to her sister Elizabeth; it also shows no wedding band.
Anne (1310) was married to John Aron or Avon of Drayton, Shropshire. She may have been born about 1577.

Mary or Margaret, (1311) was married to Thomas Woodcock of Newport, Shropshire.

He left a will executors Thomas Woodcocke son in law and Edward K his second son
