Pension Application of Lucy Page, the widow of Carter Page of Virginia: W2161 f48VA
Transcribed and Annotated by S. T. Landuyt 12/7/2011

[p. 3]
State of Virginia, Cumberland County to Wit
On this 11th day of June 1849, before me Nelson Page a Justice of the peace, in and for said County, personally appeared Mrs. Lucy Page a resident of said County aged 72 years who being first duly sworn according to law doth on her oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the provision made by the Act of Congress passed on the 29th of July 1848, granting pensions to widows of those officers and Soldiers of the Revolutionary war, who were married prior to the first day of January 1800, and subsequent to the first day of January 1794:
That she is the widow of Carter Page dec'd of said County, who was a Lieutenant and Captain in the Continental lines of Service, and the Malitia [sic], the evidence of which service may be found on file in the Executive department of the State in Richmond, on which he obtained his 4,000 Acres of land, and also on file among his papers submitted to Congress during the 1st session of the 24 Congress, and to which the Com'r of pensions is also respectfully referred, as further proof of her dec'd husbands service. That personally she has no knowledge of her husbands service but from what she can recollect she is of the opinion that he was under Gen'l Thos. Nelsons Command and acted as his aid at one time, but, how long she can not say [note: Lucy Page, maiden name Lucy Nelson, is a daughter of General Thomas Nelson] – that he must have been in the service at the North for he spoke of the Battles of German Town [Germantown October 4, 1777], Brandy Wine [Brandywine, September 11, 1777], Princeton [January 3, 1777] &c and the extreme suffering of the soldiers for the want of provisions, shoes, Blankets &c – and the he was also at the Battle of Yorktown, and capture of Lord Cornwallis [October 19, 1781]and also at Guilford Court-House battle [March 15, 1781] – and she is not certain but thinks he was under Col Bayler [Col. George Baylor of the Virginia Dragoons] at one time; and in other service which she can not designate – but that he was only about 20 years old when he entered the service and continued after the capture of Cornwallis – and perhaps connected with the service as a supernumerary' or otherwise until the close of the Revolutionary War. That she was married to her dec'd husband Carter Page, in Yorktown in the County of York, in said state by the Rev. Mr. Evans on the 14th day of December 1799 as will appear to date by her Family Register enclosed; which is a true copy from the Register in her Family Bible – and her marriage will also probably appear by the Marriage Bond and Ministers Return, as the duty officer in the County of York as aforesaid.
That her husband the aforesaid Carter Page died in said County, on the 9th day of April 1825 – leaving declarant his widow – (whose maiden name was Nelson) and who has remained unmarried ever since the time of her husbands [sic] as aforesaid to the present time. That she was not married to him prior to the expiration of his last term of service, but that the marriage took place previous to the 1st day of Jan'y 1800 and subsequent to the first day of Jan'y 1794 – all of which will more fully appear by reference to the proof annexed.

Major by Brevet about the close of said war. I have also frequently seen him in Company with officers of the Revolution and he was always recognized as one of them, and have heard him and them conversing on scenes and Battles of the Revolution in which they were companions in arms. Especially I recollect witnessing a meeting between my said Father and General LaFayette when on his last visit to the Country , in which LaFayette recognized him as Captain Page and spoke of valuable services rendered to the Country by him in that character, during the Revolutionary War.

[A letter at pp. 12-14 dated April 30, 1940, from an assistant to the administrator summarizes Carter Page's service record, as follows:]
"Carter Page entered the service early in the Revolutionary War, place of residence at the time he entered the service not shown, and was in the battle of Princeton: no details of this service given: February 6, 1777, he was appointed lieutenant in Colonel Baylor's Regiment of Dragoons: was promoted captain March 1, 1778: resigned his commission, June 4, 1779: he was in the battles of Brandywine and Germantown: in 1780 and 1781, he served as aide-de-camp to General Thomas Nelson and was in the battle of Guilford Court House, and at the siege of Yorktown and surrender of Lord Cornwallis. It was stated that he was appointed major by brevet about the close of the war.
He died April 9, 1825, in Cumberland County, Virginia, then in the sixty-seventh year of his age."

59 Robert King Carter son of John Carter and Sarah Ludlow
Robert King Carter married 1680 Virginia, to Judith Armistead.From the "ENCYCLOPEDIA of VIRGINIA BIOGRAPHY" Under the Editorial Supervision of
Lyon Gardiner Tyler, LL. D., VOLUME V, 1915, pages 848-849

"The epitaph on his tomb in Christ Church, records his virtues and achievements.
Translated from the Latin, it says:

Here lies Robert Carter an honorable man who by noble endowments and pure morals gave luster to his gentle birth.
Rector of William and Mary College, he sustained that institution and its
most trying times. And he was Speaker of the House of Burgesses and Treasurer under the most serene princes, William, Ann, George I. and George II. Elected by the House of Burgesses its Speaker six years and Governor of the Colony for more than a year he upheld equally the regal dignity and the public freedom.
Possessed of ample wealth, blameless acquired, he built and endowed this
sacred edifice, a signal monument of his piety towards God. He furnished it
richly. Entertaining his friends kindly, he was neither a prodigal nor a
parsimonious host.
His first wife was Judith, daughter of John Armistead, Esq. His second,
Betty, a descendant of the noble house of Landon. By these wives he had many children and whose education he expended large sums of money.
At length, full of honors and of years, when he had well performed all the
duties of an exemplary life he departed from this world on the 4th of August,
1732, in the 69th year of his age.
The unhappy lament their lost comforter, the widows their lost protector, and
the orphans their lost father."

63 The House of Montdidier was a medieval French noble house which ruled as count of Montdidier, Dammartin and Roucy. Its earliest definite member of the family was a certain Hilduin, who died before 956 and was known as comte de Montdidier.[1]

The oldest known member of the family of some Montdidier is a Hilduin who died before 956 and was Count Montdidier.[2] A close relative, also named Hilduin, perhaps his son, married Hersende, Lady of Ramerupt and Arcis-sur-Aube.

Assumptions were exposed to clarify and complete the origin of the family, but proved unfounded or not usable. Thus:

The Manasses name, carried by a son and grandson of Hilduin and Hersende returns home from Rethel, but the relationship between the two families is not known more precisely. There is also the tenth century Manasses, father of Gilbert, count of Chalon.

Count Luçay in his book Le comté de Clermont en Beauvaisis, étude pour servir à son histoire (1878),[3] stated that the second Manasses was probably a bastard son of a William Count of Ponthieu, but whose existence is not certain. In any case, this would have been the Count William's maternal grandfather Manasses.
First generations[edit]
Hilduin Montdidier and Hersende, Lady of Ramerupt and Arcis-sur-Aube had three sons:

Manasses († 991), who became bishop of Troyes
Hugh I, Count of Ponthieu (ca. 970 – ca. 1000).[citation needed] He married ca. 994 Gisèle Capet and left two sons:
Enguerrand I, who became Count of Ponthieu
Guy of Ponthieu
Hilduin II, who became lord of Ramerupt. Hilduin II made a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 992 and left two sons:
Hilduin III, Count of Montdidier and Lord of Ramerupt, the elder branch
Calvus Manasses, founder of the younger branch, which became the House of Dammartin.
Hilduin III (died after 1031), had four sons:

Hilduin IV († 1063), Lord of Ramerupt and Count of Roucy by his marriage with Alix de Roucy
Guillaume
Manasses, Viscount de Reims in 1053, married to Béatrice de Hainaut, ex-wife of Count Ebles I of Roucy. (Béatrice and
Ebles were the parents of Alix de Roucy, wife of Manasses' brother Hildouin IV). He himself had three children:[4]
Manasses who was Archbishop of Reims,
Guy
Adele, abbess of Our Lady of Laon.
Hilduin V had several children and two of them were at the founders
of branches.
House de Roucy[edit]
Hildouin IV of Montdidier († 1063), who married in 1031 Alix de Roucy († 1062), increased the status of his lineage within the local nobility. Indeed, his new wife was descended through her mother from the counts of Hainaut and Capetian kings. Consanguinity between the parents of Alix led to the annulment of their marriage. Alix's father, Ebles I Count de Roucy had entered the orders and became Archbishop of Reims. Alix's mother would later remarry to a brother Hildouin. Hildouin and Alix gave birth to two sons:

Ebles II, who inherited Roucy,
Andrew, who had Ramerupt and is the founder of the younger branch, and many daughters,[5] married into the local nobility; except Beatrice, wife of Count Geoffroy II du Perche and Felicie, daughter of Ebles II married King Sancho Ramírez I of Aragon.
Ebles Roucy II († 1103) was frustrated in his struggle for increasing his domain. Indeed, in 1063, he led an army into Spain and took part in the crusade of Barbastro. After taking the city, he still fought in Spain and helped the king of Aragon Sancho Ramírez to conquer the throne of Navarre. On this occasion, his sister Felicia married King. Then again he faced the Moors. He had taken part in the affairs of Spain in the hope of receiving an important stronghold, but could not get it, all these having been filled. He then went to Italy lend a hand to Robert Guiscard, prince of Salerno, but history repeated itself: he won the prestigious family alliances, since married the daughter of Robert Guiscard, but had no important fiefdom. Probably tired of these distant adventures or maybe just mellowed by age, he did not participate in the first crusade launched by Pope Urban II in 1095, just as his son did not. He took advantage of the absence of his neighbors by seeking to expand his domain to Champagne. Unable to tolerate his looting, the Archbishop of Rheims called for help the king, who sent his son and heir Prince Louis to restore order. After a short siege, Prince Louis was able to defeat Ebles II in 1102.

He was succeeded by his son Hugues Cholet († 1160) who founded several religious institutions and married Richilde Hohenstaufen, niece of Emperor Henry V and sister of the future Conrad III.

Hugues Cholet's son Guiscard[6] went to lend strength but left the Crusaders in 1170. He died in 1180, and was followed by his eldest son Raoul in 1196, and then his younger son Jean, marking the extinction of the elder branch of the family.

Cadet branch de Ramerupt[edit]
Count Hilduin IV of Montdidier and Alix de Roucy married and produced six children:

André Count Ramerupt, born about 1040, died about 1118.
Hugues Ramerupt
Olivier Ramerupt
Ebles Ramerupt
Alix Ramerupt, married to Count I of Brienne Erard, who died around 1125, son of Count I. Gauthier de Brienne, and Eustachie de Tonnerre.
......(first name unknown) Ramerupt, whose first husband Jean Viscount of Mareuil-sur-Ay (about 1095-around 1127), Viscount of Mareuil, Lord of Montmort, son of Dudo Viscount of Mareuil-sur-Ay and Lady Adelaide of Chalons Vidame. Her second husband in 1151 was Guy Lord of Bazoches, son of the Lord Hugues de Bazoches and Basilie. 
Heiress of Roucy, Adelaide (Adele)(Alice) (I283)

67 Walking through the rooms of this house transports you back in time over two centuries to the days of the American Revolutionary War. Originally, 142 and 144 Prince George Street was one residence. The core of these two residences started as a double-pike, center-passage dwelling erected in the 1770s. With the growth of Annapolis in the late 19th century, a number of lots and dwellings in the older section of the city were subdivided to provide more housing and commercial stock. Such was the destiny of this two-story brick dwelling in the mid-1880s as the owner added an entrance bay to the northeast and partitioned the old section of the house to create two side-passage residences. The break in the brickwork caused by this radical reconfiguration of the house was masked on the exterior by stucco that obscured the header bond of the original section.

Mr. Thomas Rutland was the builder and original owner of this building. It was during the 1770s that Mr. Thomas Rutland constructed this 50 by 32-foot, five-bay, brick dwelling on the northeast side of Prince George Street. The front elevation was laid in header bond while the rear and sidewalls were faced in English bond, a mid to late 18th-century decorative fashion characteristic of the region. The division between the first and second floors is demarcated by a four-course header bond belt course along the rear façade, a treatment that was almost certainly repeated originally on the front as well. The two-story walls rise above an English bond foundation with a stepped water table.

The original plan consisted of a center stair passage with a pair of flanking rooms on each side. Unlike many Annapolis houses of this scale, the two principal entertaining rooms faced the street front while the two smaller rooms were located to the rear. Internal chimneys located on the gable walls heated all four rooms. Little is known of the original finish of these rooms as they were completely renovated by a subsequent owner in the second quarter of the 19th century. The only surviving interior element from the first period of construction is an enriched plaster cornice on the first floor entertaining rooms and the original center stair passage similar in style to other late colonial examples in the city. The cymatium features an egg-and-dart band while the soffit of the corona consists of alternating modillions and pateras. The bed molding as a fret and rope motif along with a torus-shaped picture molding.

Apparently, Mr. Rutland faced financial reverses and was forced to sell the house to Dr. James Murray in 1785. For part of his career, Dr. Murray was the physician to President Thomas Jefferson. Several of his sons-in-law were signers of The Declaration of Independence. Yes, they did sleep here! ; The 1798 Federal Direct tax assessed Murray $1,200 for this lot which contained the dwelling, a one-story brick kitchen measuring 16 by 32 feet, a 16 foot square brick medical shop, and an 8 by 10 foot brick smokehouse.
