Mythical Vortigern was followed as king of the Bretons by Ambrosius, and yet there is distinct animosity against Vortigern by some myth writers who are gentile toward Ambrosias, suggesting that the two codes represented slightly different Brets. In one myth version, a son of Vortigern was given as "Catigern," and sure enough as per my suspicions that this code depicted the Cati holy grail = the historical Catuvellauni, another version of his name was "Catotigernus."
As Catigern/Catigirn was given a father, "Cadell," it tends to support a Vortigern = Cati equation. Note how similar "Cadell" is with "Catuvelluani," the latter being Celts living immediately north of the Atrebates of Hampshire. But more conspicuous are the Catalauni Belgics. Myth writers made Cadell a ruler in Powys (Wales), and, not surprisingly, his father in some cases was made Britu.
After learning that the Catalauni Belgics, from whom the Catuvellauni must have stemmed, "occupied the central Plain of Champagne," I had reason to do what I would have done anyway: seek Cati roots in Campania and other parts of southern Italy.
Shouldn't it be expected that Abellinum/Avellino in Campania furnished Avallon at the border of modern Champagne? As I've traced Arthurian Avalon to Wales, it just could be that this important entity belonged to mythical Cadell of Powys i.e. a branch of Catevellauni. It was only at the point of making this connection that I saw evidence for it: where the "vellauni" portion of "Catuvellauni" seems to derive from Avellino. In this picture, either the Cati were fundamental to Avellino, or there had been a Cati alliance with the peoples of Avalon and/or Avellino. As the latter passed through Avallon of Champagne en route to Avalon of Wales, it may explain why Champagne is well known for being central to the mysteries of Templar France.
Avellino was smack beside (Male)vento, which should have been the origin of the Atrebate city of Vento. One could either hypothesize that the Atrebates and Avellinians moved together to the west, or that the Avellinians were Atrebates themselves. Clues toward the reality should be forthcoming with further focus on this topic.
Avallon at Champagne was anciently "Aballo," and this does indeed support a blood root in the historical Cabalians/Cabalees/Cabaleis, a Lasonii peoples that must surely have been mythicized as the Great Mother, Kybele, the abominable whore of Revelation 17 who holds a golden grail filled with the blood of her murders. It was Herodotus who said that the Cabelees were Lasonii in particular, but he also identified them as Maeonians (often viewed as proto-Lydians). It's not a coincidence, therefore, that the Maeonians/Meoni trace to the Meon peoples who named the Meon river of Hampshire. That's where the Atrebates lived, wherefore one has reason to identify Atrebates as a branch of the Great Mother whore. That is, Atrebates were of the Lasonii, Maeoni, and/or Cabelees. From that conclusion, I can now reveal that the mythical Atrides (i.e. the Pelops>Atreus>Menelaus bloodline) were of the same Great-Mother Illuminatists.
It's amazing that the Cati were yet living in the midst of the Laz as far away from Caucasia as Britain (back in the Caucasian theater, the Laz had been "married" to Nergal, the god of the Cutha). Nergal was honored by worshipers as a lion head on the end of a mace, wherefore it seems a very good theory that the lion symbol of Britain belonged to Catuvellauni elements. But if Nergal was a representation of the Cutha/Cati grail line, how did he get that name? Until now, I have had not one good theory.
I had already written that Hercules was associated with the Lydian lion and for this reason had equated him with Nergal, but not until just now did I see the similarity between "Nergal" and "Hercules." I sent this idea by way of Greenway7, who has a much better grip on ancient linguistics than I, and she reminded me that an "H" and an "N" were indeed interchangeable, for it has been one of her persistent beliefs that the Hephtalites had been of the Israeli tribe of Naphtali. The Nergal-Hercules equation seems solid now simply because Hercules had been the special god of the proto-Lydian peoples (i.e. the Mysians especially), while it can be expected that the Laz (wife of Nergal) were those proto-Lydian/Lasonii peoples.
In this picture, Nergal is revealed as the Mysian/Muse Gorgons in particular, but also the Danaans, for Hercules was such in early times. As the Hercules Danaans ruled at Mycenae, one has more reason now to equate Mycenae with the Mysians. I'll bet you the two pillars at the helm of my cup-shaped yacht that the city of Argos, smack beside Mycenae, was named by/after the same peoples who named Hercules, and I'll bet the gold cords entwined around those pillars that Masons are named after Mycenae, and that Rosicrucians are rooted in the Rus of the Aras/Araxes river...who were the founders of Argos.
Vor-tigern can be identified, not only as the Catu, but as the Bor = boar bloodline = the Eburovices. The Iceni = Cenimagni = Cenomani stamped boars on their coins, explaining why the Cenomani lived next to the Eburovices. It's moreover known that Eburovices and Cenomani were two tribes of the same Aulerci Gauls ("Auleric" may per chance have been rooted in "Aval(on)"). It's therefore interesting that today, a black boar serves as the symbol in the Arms of Benevento (ancient Malevento).
I now know that the Aulerci had become kings of the Brets. Where the pro-Ambrosias writers claim that Vortigern was a usurper i.e. not a true Bret, I sense anti-Hebrew sentiments, for in some cases Vortigern is treated with the same sort of utter contempt common toward Semitism throughout the ages. That the Auleric were very closely allied to the Brets can be understood where the chief town of the Cenomani of northern Italy was Brixia. Surely, Brixia was a town named by the Ebroicum (alternative of "Eburovices"). If that makes the Brets the same as the Ebur peoples, it's no wonder that the Eburs founded York. This could make the Aryan-honoring side of the dragon cringe, but reality is reality. Bluntly, Brets stem majorly from Eburum.
As the Welsh were Brets, might they have been from the Hales river (Lucania) and the city of Velia at its mouth (very near Eburum)? Surely, these Greeks became the Veliocasses Celts living beside the Eburovices (see map of Gaul"). Now "Celt" is a term that survived among the Caledonians of Britain (in my opinion), and these stemmed from the Chaldeans (i.e. Hebrews of Babylon), wherefore I would interpret Caledonians as Hebrew Brets. If it's true what they say, that Caledonians were Picts, then the Picts need to be identified as Hebrews as well. However, it could be that Caledonians were not initially Picts, but rather married into the Pict fold.
On the map of ancient Lucania, we see the Peucetii along the Appian Way, but also along the Bradanus river, a situation that could indicate a proto-Pict alliance with proto-Bretons, in southern Italy. Then, in Gaul, we see the Pictones not far from the Eburovices, which could confirm that alliance.
One could conjecture, therefore, that "Bradanus" is to be understood as "Eburadanus," which once again suggests a Hebrew root to Britain. Then, if (as I suspect) the Bradanus inhabitants founded Bruttium, anciently Brucios, it explains why Eburovices were also "Ebroicum/Ebroicae." Plus, York is a city in the far north of England, and was therefore beside the Picts living at what is now the Scot-English border. Arthurian characters, including "old king Cole," have been traced by others to York and that northern kingdom. Since Arthur was a Bret bloodline, he now begins to appear as an Ebur entity, and of course he ought to prove to be a Cutha/Cati bloodline since he is made one of the highest mythical figures while we can count on myths being products mainly of the holy-grail cult.
The Peucetii lived where the Bari region is to this day. I am confident that Bari was settled by mythical Paris (a Trojan), as explained in a previous chapter, and these too I would connect to the Ebur terms, supported by the fact that, in Gaul, the Parisii can be seen smack beside the Eburovices. This makes it tempting to identify the Picts as a line of Peuceti > Pyxus/Buxentium > Pictones > Vaux/Baux.
A Vaux alternative, "Valibus," can then be understood as the Halybes of Velia (on the Hales river), explaining why "Welles" is yet another Vaux alternative. From this perspective, the Welles name may be essentially the same as "Wales," supported by the fact that Wales uses a red dragon symbol while the Welles Coat uses a red lion (on gold, thus in keeping with the Vaux red and gold colors).
Keep in mind in all this that the Vaux were a branch of Cohens, though how this came to be, I don't yet know in detail. If this "Jewish" British ancestry is a little hard to believe, it's because the Celts were not Jews on their Hebrew side, and any comparison of Chaldean Hebrews with Jews is simply unjustified. Even if the Chaldean Hebrews had some Dan-tribe elements, they were from such an early period that Israel had not yet formed anything of a Jewish nature.
We read at the link above that the Welles were descended from Gilbert of Ghent (English = "Gaunt"), this city being on the river Lys in Belgic Flanders. That would seem to explain why the Welles Crest (as opposed to the shield/coat) uses a black lion, the symbol of Flanders. This then tends to verify that Wales=Welles had something large to do with the founding of Wallonia, beside Flanders. Mythical "Gawain" now comes to mind, for he was made "Waluuanii" in a French work.
Compare "Waluuanii" with "Catuvellauni," and ask if Wallonia and Avallon were named after identical peoples. I say yes.
In light of the expectation that the dragon of Ghent ought to have moved to the regions in and around the Atrebates (of Hampshire), behold that "Hampshire was part of an area named Gwent or Y Went." This location would be a good place to seek the roots of Cunedda, a ruler with ancestry at the tip of the Firth of Forth (near the Allen river), but who ruled Lothian to Gwynedd. In this picture, the namers of the Lys river at Ghent might just be the origin of the Lothians. Indeed, some trace Cunedda to mythical Lud (son of Heli), and wouldn't you known it that Geoffrey of Monmouth named the historical Cassivellaunus as Lud's brother and successor. Cassivellaunus is widely believed to have been a ruler of the Catuvellauni.
Lud's father was made "Heli," a mythical term evoking the Veliocasses. This Heli=Veliocasses theory is likely correct because a Welsh alternative of "Heli" was "Beli Mawr." It's of course possible that the Veliocasses were the same stock as the Avellinians and/or Catuvellauni, explaining how "Velio" and "Avalon" can both trace to Wales. "Lud" may have been an invention to indicate a branch of Lot, founder of Lothians. But Wikipedia is certain that Lud was the same as the Welsh Lludd. The latter, a king of the Brets, had a (mythical) brother named "Llefelys," a king of France. As soon as I saw the latter term, I saw a Levi-Lys, for I still hold out that Greenway7 was correct in her Lys = Lee > Levi theory. Then I found that a variation of "Llefelys" is "Llevelys."
The western myth writers are here interpreted by me as seeing one stock of peoples ruling both the Brets and Franks, and that these had as their symbol the fleur de lys. I believe that this Brito-Frank peoples was the bloodline of Arthur.
Because "Caesar tells us that Cassivellaunus had previously been at constant war with the British tribes, and had overthrown the king of the Trinovantes," I can now glean that mythical Vortigern depicted this overthrow of the Trinovantes. The capital of the latter was Camulodunum, and myth writers who depreciated the importance of Vortigern were likely pro-Trinovantes (also "Trinobantes").
If Geoffrey of Monmouth was correct to make Cassivellaunus the son of mythical Heli/Beli, then it would seem that Cassivellaunus (and Vortigern) was from the Veliocasses, and before that from Velia on the Hales river (Lucania). The fine distinction between the Veliocasses and the Trinovantes could then be expounded as a distinction between Avalon and Camelot (i.e. Camulodunum), not to mention a distinction between Avellino and (Bene)Vento. Taking it further back in time, I see a distinction between the Halybes and the Heneti. Ghent, Gwent, and Gwynedd would thereby belong to the Heneti line, so as to carry the same distinction to that between Wales and Gwynedd. If this confuses you or makes you yawn, ignore it and leave it for the researchers who badly want to dredge the bottom of the grail.
The red-rose cult of Lancaster was ruled by John of Gaunt (born in Ghent), and as he was a Plantagenet, couldn't the "genet" part of the code refer to Ghent? Yes, "Plantagenet" is a code, a name taken on suddenly by the Fulk bloodline, but I do not accept the standard explanation that the term derives from a sprig in a hat. I have already traced the "Planta" portion to Blanda (smack next to Laus), and have identified Blanda as the root of Flanders, wherefore it supports this new idea that the "genet" portion depicted Ghent, for Ghent was in Flanders.
Previously, I traced the "genet" portion to Genusia (see map of ancient Lucania), but this may yet be correct. Here's how. Venusia (modern Venosa) and Genusia are off the same river (Bradanus), and moreover due to the similarity of terms they are likely named after the same stock of peoples. Assuming that they were also the stock which named Venice/Venetia -- the latter known to be from the Heneti/Eneti -- the conclusion is that Venusia and/or Genusia were Heneti settlements.
"Ghent" can likewise be viewed as a form of "Heneti." If one wanted a code to disguise roots in the Heneti, he might use "genet, you see, by which I mean to say that the one who used the "genet" code knew he was from both Ghent and the Heneti, thus making this link for us.
Because the first Plantagenet (Geoffrey) was not, on one side, from Flanders (but rather from Fleche, Normandy), it's compelling to root the other side of the Plantagenets, i.e. the Fulks, to Ghent of Flanders. I'll keep an eye out for verification, but the implication is that proto-Fulks were from a Blanda-Genusia mix.
Pelops was ruler of the Eneti peoples. He was the father of Atreus, so that if the theory above is true, Atreus should have been the founder of Genusia and Venusia, and a branch of Atrebate Celts should therefore have been the namers of Ghent. This could explain why Vento and Vindomis (in Britain) were Atrebate cities, or perhaps even why the Atrebates were situated beside Kent. Surely it can't also be a coincidence that the Atrebates of Belgium were smack-on Ghent!!
It's likely that the entire Veneti stock of peoples were from Atreus, and to support a Troy identity for him, we find that the mythical leader of the Heneti, Antenor (read as Eneti-nor), was indeed a Trojan ruler. This is now more evidence that Agamemnon and Menelaus -- the Atrides -- depicted Trojan peoples even while they were leaders against Troy (in the Trojan war).
The Heneti were among Paphlagonians of Asia Minor. Wikipedia says that all Paphlagonian rulers used the title, "Pylaimenes," and that the Iliad uses the same term to describe a king of Paphlagonia. The "menes" portion of the term should be identical with the same in "Menelaus"...which I have identified as the Mani peninsula in Laconia (where Laas is situated). I can now assume that the "Pylai" portion refers to the land west of Mani, Messenia that is, for it was ruled by mythical Pylas, depicting the city of Pylos...the capital of what is now Pylia Province. Wikipedia: "In the Homeric poems, eastern Messenia is represented as under the rule of Menelaus of Sparta, while the western coast is under the Neleids of Pylos..." I am therefore confident that the Atrebates belonged to the Paphlagonian Pylaimenes, and that they came to Britain through Messenia.
Have I mentioned yet that Lac(onia) and Luc(ania) could be hard-c variations of Laas and Laus? For example, could not "Lasoni" have evolved into Laconi/Lagoni? If so, Paphlagonians were majorly Lasonii. But what about the "Paph" portion? On the map of ancient Messenia, see Alagonia on the Mani peninsula, very near to Pephnos, this supporting a Mani interpretation of the Pylaimenes term while at the same time verifying that Paphlagonians were on Mani and encroaching onto the Pylos region of Messenia.
Alagonia was made a mythical daughter of Zeus and Europa, revealing that these peoples were part of the holy grail bloodline, yes the Cati. It also suggests that Minos, the son of Zeus and Europa, was of the Phoenicians of Mani. See "Phoenicus Port" south of Pylos and Methoni. Couldn't this port have been named after the particular Phoenicians which included the Aegyptus Danaans come to Methoni?
As Vor-Tigern depicted the Catuvellauni, I'd expect his Cati bloodline to have been on/near Phoenicus Port, which is why I'll mention Theganussa smack next to that Port. I've already mentioned that Theganussa and neighboring Acritas moved to the Aciris river (Lucania), because the town of Tegianum can be seen near its source.
The problem is, I see no Cati-like term on the Lucania map, nor in Apulia, and yet the term survived all the way to the Catuvellauni. In the Cadmus bloodline, the Cati were not called by a Cati-like term historically, but rather came to be the Thebians and Spartans, two terms that look rooted in a common Seba/Sheba-like root. I therefore see some Cati elements in the Sybarites and their Laus sister, but also in the Sabatus river that flowed through Abellinum/Avellino. Yet I cannot connect the Catu portion of the Catuvellauni to southern Italy, even though the "vellauni" portion is likely from Avellino, because I seek a Cati-like term moving across Europe virtually unchanged. I would tend to define the Catuvellauni as a distinct Cati peoples allied to the Avalon bloodline. As the Atrebates of England are known to have lived among a Jutish tribe of Anglo-Saxons, I would seek the Cati/Catu name in the Jutes/Goths/Getae.
The entry of royal Anglo-Saxons into Celt bloodlines looks like an innate ingredient in Freemasonry. For one reason, I've found that America-founding Freemasons trace also to Saxons. The Saxon-Celt alliance apparently began as a red versus white dragon mortal conflict...that was a major theme in Arthurian myth. Vortigern is credited with inviting Saxons to England in an alliance, but Arthur is afterward depicted as the red-dragon Brets who had to fight that white dragon off. The alliance is depicted, I believe, in the red and white colors of the Hohen checks, but also in the red and white of England/Canada and the United States.
Sorbs in Lusatia (Germany) are not permitted to study/announce their ancestry. The Wends of Lusatia who migrated to Texas called their first town, Serbin, and it happened to be in Lee County, which tweaked my interest enough to dig deeper, for I seek evidence that "lee" and "lys" are identical terms. This is extremely important if true, for it identifies the fleur de lys as a Sorb/Wend entity. With the Wends in view, the Lys river at Ghent comes to mind.
I found that Lee county was named after Robert E. Lee, but, the question is, where did that surname come from? Although the Lee Coat at houseofnames.com displays a red lion on gold (same as Welles), Wikipedia displays another Lee-Family Coat at the article on Robert's father (Henry). Can it be a coincidence that, many chapters ago, I at Greenway's suggestion of a Levi connection to the fleur de lis had tied the Lee name to Cohens, while on the Lee Coat displayed at Wikipedia we see blue and white checks, the very symbol of the Stewarts but also of the German Cohens?!
[Update July 2007 -- It's interesting that in one rebellious plot to replace queen Elizabeth I, one plotter was a Thomas Lee and another a Robert Devereux. The latter, as earl of Essex, had wormed his way into the affairs (and bedroom) of Elizabeth before being tried for treason (in 1601) against her. Says Wikipedia:
"Some days before execution of sentence [against Devereux], Captain Thomas Lee was apprehended as he kept watch on the door to the queen's chambers. His plan had been to confine her until she signed a warrant for the release of Essex [i.e. of Devereux]. Lee, who had served in Ireland with the earl and acted as go-between with the Ulster rebels, was tried and put to death the next day."
I added this piece here due to the implication that Lee and Devereux had a close relationship, and because the latter surname seemed possibly to be a version of "Evereux." Then when I checked houseofnames.com to see if this was a correct deduction, there it was: "This [Devereux] family was originally from Evreux, in Eure, Normandy..."
The possibility therefore exists that the Devereux surname belongs to the Eburovices/Ebroicum Celts (i.e. founders of Evreux) that had colonized and named York. The Devereux of the Elizabethan period had been friendly with Stewarts, and it is believed by some that the Robert Devereux above was attempting to replace Elizabeth with the Stewart, James VI of Scotland (who did in fact replace her in 1603 as James I of England, two years after Devereux's execution). End Update]
Houseofnames.com reports that "Some of the first settlers of this [Lee] family name...came to Virginia in 1607; 13 years before the arrival of the Mayflower..." Henry Lee was born in Virginia, and then became governor of Virginia. He was son of major Henry Lee II of "Leesylvania,"and of Lucy Grimes (I don't usually make much of first names but in this case I will). Henry II was "first cousin once removed to Richard Henry Lee, sixth President of the Continental Congress," also born in Virginia. He in turn was son of (another) Thomas Lee (1690-1750) and Hannah Harrison Ludwell.
The gold phoenix of the Harrison Coat exposes the dragon cult, as does the green serpent coiled around a pillar in the Harrison Crest. "Some of the first settlers of this [Harrison] family name...settled in Virginia in 1607; 13 years before the 'Mayflower'..." Quite apparently, Harrisons and Lees sailed together to Virginia, for they arrived in the same year.
The Englander, Thomas Lee (same as above), whose portrait starts to look like the long-haired Rosicrucians of England, was for a short term governor of Virginia. As "His ancestors had immigrated from Coton, Shropshire, England to Virginia in 1642," it now possibly explains the Stewart checks in the Lee Coat. Thomas' mother was Laetitia Corbin, what evokes the Sorbs of Lusatia. So I checked the Corbin Coat and found that the Scottish-branch was "First found in Shropshire where they were seated from very early times...Some of the first settlers of this family name or some of its variants were: Alexander Corbet who sailed on the Lucy to Canada..." The Corbet Crest uses an elephant (the symbol of the Republicans).
[Update July 2007 -- The mother of the executed Thomas Devereux above was Lettice Knollys, born in Oxfordshire; the Arms of Oxford uses an elephant for a symbol. This now seems important because on the one hand the Veres were rulers (earls) of Oxford from very early times, and because on the other hand I've traced Veres back to Lusignan > Lusatia. This is strong evidence that America-founding Freemasonry/Rosicrucianism also traces back to Lusignan and/or Lusatia. After writing the above, I checked the Knolly Coat and found that the Crest is an elephant!
The surname ruling Essex (as earls) previous to the Devereux surname was "Bourchier," which itself seems merely another version of "Evreux/Ebroicum." In fact, the Bourchier surname is said to originate from Bouchier, Normandy. As evidence that the surname was Cohen/Hohen-related, the Bourchier Coat uses red and gold checks (used also by the founders of Flanders, the Flemings). A Bransford-surname website (below) claims that the Boucher/Bourchier surname derives from "Bransford," and the latter looks very much as though it could be related to "Brandenburg," the Hohen-ruled region where Lusatia is found. In fact, the website goes on to show that the Bransford surname was also "Brandon," a surname that houseofnames.com claims to be from the Anglo-Saxons of Britain (who lived at Brandon in Essex). In the next chapter I share excellent evidence for tracing the Saxon founding of Essex (and Sussex) itself to Lusatia! Note the similarity between the Brandon Coat and the Washington Coat.
It may be a bull's eye, in the face of what I had written below on the Burgess surname some months before this update, that "Bransford, the Elder, had a son, Robert, who...was also known as “Lord Bourgch”...some of the descendants...were called Boursier, Burcer, Bourchier, or Bowser, but they were, in truth, Bransfords" (italics mine). Dismissing what others say about the origin of this surname, one may see that it could have been from the Burgh/Berger surname (that married the mother of the Claro, William the Conqueror), a very important point if true because the Burghs used a triple-red-chevron-on-gold symbol (shared by the "Strongbow" Clares) that, with a white background, came to be a major symbol of the America-founding Freemasons.
I don't think it's a coincidence that the first counts of Evreux were from "an illegitimate son of Richard I, duke of Normandy," the great-grandfather of the Conqueror and therefore a Claro. In light of my tracing the America-founding Freemasons to the Montfort surname, I'll add that a Claro countess (Agnes) of Evreux was the wife of Simon de Montfort (11th century), and that Evreux then passed to that Montfort family.
The question for a sharp researcher to answer is whether the Rollo Danes (from whom Richard I descended) were themselves from Ebroicum Celts. Yorkshire was ruled by Brigantes Celts before the Romans arrived, a term looking much like the makings of "Burgh/Bruges," and therefore quite likely being a branch of Ebroicum. It was the Romans who called their city "Eboracum," but the question is, why?
If true that the Brigantes were named after the goddess Brigantia, then these Celts were also in the Austrian city of Bregenz/Brigantion (where Brigantia was worshiped as well), for which reason I will keep eyes open for Hohen/Brandenburg origins there (since I have reason to trace Hohens (and Washingtons) back to Swiss-Austria). This Austrian city is in the state of Vorarlberg; note the similarity between the Arms of Vorarlberg and the Devereux Coat, and then compare the Vorarlberg stripes with those on the proto-Washington Wassa Coat. Not at all conclusive, but interesting. Brigantia connection to Brandenburg can be made by this: "The rivers Brent in England, Braint in Wales, and Brigid in Ireland are all related linguistically and maybe religiously to the root Brig/Brigant..."
Not only has the city of York been attributed in part to the Parisii Celts, but the Parisii have been viewed by some as a branch of Brigantes. Having found that the Parisii of Paris (France) used Gorgons on their coins, I can now add that a bas-relief of Brigantia has been found (webpage below) with a Gorgon head inscribed upon her breast. With this I am all the more confident that the Brigantes Celts did derive from the Pari Muses of Phrygia, and that they were the ancient Bryges/Brigia peoples of Phrygia. Not surprisingly, others have had the same conclusion: "It was thought by Baudeu that this particular tribe of Brigantes were actually the Phrygians of Gaul" (I don't know who this Baudeu (or is it "Baudeau") fellow is).
I then found that Thomas Lee attended the College of William and Mary, the same college that was infested with pro-Stewart Rosicrucians bringing Thomas Jefferson to power as governor of Virginia. Thomas Lee's grandfather (born in Shropshire) became "colonial Secretary of State, member of the King's Council." Thomas Lee, like his father and grandfather, "became a member of the House of Burgesses" (1723).
What was the House of Burgesses? For starters, it was proto-America i.e. Independence:
The House of Burgesses was the first elected legislative assembly in the New World established in the Colony of Virginia in 1619...In 1624, the Virginia Company lost its charter, and Virginia became a royal colony. The House of Burgesses continued to meet, but its influence was severely restricted. Despite limitations on its actions, the assembly listed within its later ranks such notables as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry, and would assume a major leadership role in the movement toward independence."
When I tell you the following, it won't be a dream: the English Burgess Coat is almost fully of red and white Hohen checks. I didn't make that up. I had suspected that Hohens were a part of Freemason American Independence, and there is the first solid evidence.
The Irish Burgess Coat uses the red and gold checks that were on the Arms of the Counts of Angouleme. Angouleme was meshed by marriage to Lusignan! As explained earlier, Lusignan (France) was surely a branch of Lusatia in Hohen-infested Prussia!! So there we have the Illuminati that founded America.
The red lion acting as the Burgess Crest is likely the same as the red lion on the Lee Coat, meaning the families were related. It may even be that the House of Burgesses chose officials only of the same blood. I explained earlier that, due to the Leigh/Legh variations of "Lee," the surname could stem from Liege of Belgic Wallonia. As houseofnames.com says that the Irish Burgess surname is "Brugha," is it a coincidence that the city of Bruges/Brugge is just on the other side of Brussels from Liege? Remember, Brugge is where the Bruces started off, and Brugge is smack beside Ghent. At the following website, where Wikipedia has the genealogy of the Lee line (under discussion) going back to the Conqueror (1066), we find that the surname in those days was "Lega."
As the German version of Liege is "Luttich," remember that Lusatia is "Luzica" in German. One could conclude that Lusignan, Liege, and Lusatia were all domains of the same Laz peoples, some of whom honored their heritage in surnames such as "Lys" and "Lee." In Dutch, the Lys river is called "Leie."
Now the ancestry of Charlemagne was in Liege, and he named his first son, Ludwig (Louis de Pious). Ludwig in turn named his son Lothair. If that's not enough, Charlemagne's mother was from Merovingians of Laon. This surely does seem like the mythical Lludd and Llefelys known to the Welsh.
In the work, "Naissance du Chevalier au Cygne," a character encoded, "Elioxe/Eliouse" has seven children with King Lothair, and these terms certainly smack of the historical Louis and Lothair. The seven sons of the mythical characters are turned into swans. Very interesting. Freemasons wish us to believe that these swans, and especially their "Swan Knight," depict the Davidic/Messianic bloodline of Israel. But I now know much better, and if I'm correct where I identify the swan symbol as Gogi-Rus of Armenia migrated to Liguria and then to France, so would I identify the ancestry of Charlemagne and mythical Lud/Lludd of Britain.
Can we see the possibility that "Lega/Leigh/Lee" was a surname in honor of the Ligurian elements that named Leiden/Leyden (Holland), said by some to be named after mythical Lug? In olden times, Leiden was "Leithon," what could surely have become Lothian and the mythical Ladon dragon. One may suspect that, as Meons lived in Hampshire, who in Asia were the proto-Lydian Meonians, so Lothian (also "Lowden") alongside "Lludd/Lud" evokes the Lydians (Biblically "Lud").
Because the myth writers made the Lothair swan line the father of the mother (Ida) of Godfrey de Bouillon, the trickery is obvious: to make Godfrey (first Templar king of Jerusalem) appear as the true Messianic bloodline. The other side of Ida was made Regnier of Saxony, if that helps to solidify the Gogi-Scythian nature of this bloodline. Regnier of Saxony no doubt depicted the counts of Hainaut named, Regnier. Hainaut was on the south side of Ghent and the east side of Artois (see map of Hainaut).
I've shown evidence that the Lee and Burgess surnames are related, because, for example, both use a red lion. Houseofnames.com says that "The Burgess family lived in Sussex...originally the family was from Bourgeois in Picardy, France." In the Arms of Picardy, we first of all see three red lions and three fleur de lys. But we also see that the coat is quartered in blue and white, perhaps in honor of the Stewart checks found in the Lee Coat. Or, Hainaut uses blue and white diamonds.
While the Stewarts who become royals had moved from Shropshire to Scotland, one could reason that some pro-Stewart Freemasons of America were of the Stewarts remaining in Shropshire until the advent of the Virginia Company brought them to America. At the Wikipedia article on the Lee family under discussion, we find that the Shropshire Lees were in high places at a very early time, for "John de la Lee I (ca. 1209)...was the son of Reginald de la Lee I, High Sheriff of Shropshire." At this website, we see that the grandson of this High Sheriff, Thomas de la Lee I, had married a Corbet, daughter of Thomas Corbet, sheriff of Shropshire. Is it possible, therefore, since we know that "Stewart" was not a proper surname in Dol, Brittany, that the Stewarts there were Lees, Burgesses, and/or Corbets? After all, the Dol Stewarts had themselves become sheriffs of Shropshire at about the same time; for example: William Fitzallen was sheriff until 1202.
I'll mention again that "Corbet," because I suspect the Lee surname to stem from Lusatia, is a take on the Sorbs of Lusatia. Now the Sorbs are classified as Slavs, and this coincides with my new theory that "Salop," the alternative name of Shropshire, derives from the same that produced "Slov/Slav." Interesting enough, but more than that I can't say at this time. Beside Shropshire was, as long ago as the Conqueror, a place called "Ludlow," and while it is said today that this place was named "Loud Hill" after a loud steam, I dare say that the town belongs to the Lud/Lludd terms of mythology. The Ludlow surname today uses a black lion on gold, the symbol of Flanders and the Hohens.
Saxons of Saxony lived anciently in Westphalia and Eastphalia, but see what the terms are said to mean: "The name 'West-phalia' probably means 'West-Plain'. The second word, 'Falen', is related to the Germanic words 'Field', 'Flat'..." If true, these terms could have furnished "Flaad" and even "Flanders." Phalia seems an appropriate term to describe whatever historical Spartans were depicted by mythical "Phalantos."
