{117} Edward IV Descents for Sir Redmond Watt (b. 1950)

Gen. Sir Redmond Watt, KCB, KCVO, CBE
(b. 1950)
Tracing the descendants of Lady Anne (née Townshend) Hudson led me to General Sir Redmond 'Reddy' Watt. He "was educated at Eton College and Christ Church, Oxford University, where he read Law. He joined the British Army in 1972 and served for 36 years before retiring in 2008. In his last appointment as Commander-in-Chief Land Command between 2006 and 2008 he was responsible for recruiting and training the Army, and preparing it for operational deployments. His early military service was with the Welsh Guards, and his operational experience was in Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Bosnia. After leaving the Army he was President of Combat Stress, the mental health charity for ex-servicemen, for 6 years. He is now the Governor (Chairman) of the Royal Hospital Chelsea; a non executive director of the NAAFI and chairman of its audit committee; a non-executive director of Linguistica-Global Ltd. During 25 years playing polo, he represented Oxford University, the Army, Young England and England B. He is the President of the Army Polo Association" [Bio, Thyssen Petroleum]. He was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire, then promoted to Commander in 1996. Watt became Major-General commanding the Household Division and General Officer Commanding London District in 2000, in which capacity he had a significant role in the funeral of the Queen Mother in 2002. He was appointed a Knight Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in 2004 on relinquishing his appointment commanding the Household Division. He was appointed a Knight Commander of the Order of the Bath in 2008 ['Redmond Watt', Wikipedia].
Lady Suzanne (née Baggs) Watt
In 2012, he was appointed one of the 29 Deputy Lieutenants of Berkshire. To top it off, Watt's wife, Lady Suzanne 'Suzie' Watt, née Baggs, is originally from Pasadena, California, which makes me, a native Angeleno, proud.

Sir (CHARLES) REDMOND WATT of Hurst House, Berkshire, KCB, KCVO, CBE, b. 1950 Oxfordshire, son of Maj. Richard James Andrew Watt of Hurst House (1917-2002, descended from Edward IV - see Generation A16 below) and Margery Teulon Porter (b. 1920); m. 1993 Berkshire, SUZANNE DENISE BAGGS, b. 1963 Los Angeles County, California, dau. of Ralph C.

John Starkie turns out to be erroneous, so the next blogpost will be the Edward IV descent for General Sir Redmond Watt, KCB, KCVO, CBE, DL]

{115} Ruvigny Elaboration: Mortimer/Percy Descent for J.P. Chamberlain Starkie (1830-1888)

Starkie of Huntroyde coat of arms
[Argent, a bend sable, between six storks proper]
When Chamberlain Starkie died in June 1888, two weeks shy of his fifty-eighth birthday, of blood poisoning incurred from a cut on his finger a month previous, there was a tremendous outpouring of grief in Lancashire. "The news spread through the town very rapidly, and on every hand, amongst all classes of society, regardless of creed or party, there were expressions of sorrow and grief that a gentleman so highly beloved as a neighbour and friend should have been suddenly cut off in the prime of life ... By the mere force of his personal character and rare qualities he became the most popular county gentleman in North Lancashire, and he well deserved that distinction ... There was no one—however humble his position—residing in Ashton township, who had any hesitation in approaching Mr Chamberlain Starkie to ask advice or assistance ... He was a ready and courageous exponent of the political faith he held, but on no occasion did he utter anything that would wound or give personal offence to an opponent. And this charitable and sensible side of his nature assisted greatly in establishing his popularity. He was always listened to attentively at a political meeting; and the most extreme Radicals would give a patient hearing to ‘Chamberlain Starkie.’ They admired the man, and as a consequence tolerated the politician" ['Death of Mr. Chamberlain Starkie, J.P., of Ashton Hall', The Lancaster Gazette, Saturday, June 16, 1888, p. 5].
Ashton Hall, Thurnham, Lancashire
Ashton Hall, three miles south of the city of Lancaster, lies on the east bank of the River Lune, in the parish of Thurnham. In 1853, the hall was sold by the Dukes of Hamilton to Chamberlain's father, the wealthy Le Gendre Nicholas Starkie (1799-1865) of Huntroyde Hall, who had it largely rebuilt in 1856. Chamberlain, a second son, attended Eton and Trinity College Cambridge, where he studied law, and was admitted to the Inner Temple in 1852. In 1861 he married Anne Hudson, sister of the young squire of Bessingby Hall in Yorkshire, the wedding ceremony performed by her stepfather, Rev. Arthur Fane. Ashton Hall was gifted to the newlyweds by Le Gendre Starkie, and they soon had three children there. In 1865, Chamberlain was made a Justice of the Peace for the county, taking particular interest in Lancaster Castle, and in the County Asylum, which was a pioneer in the humane treatment of the mentally ill. A devoted member of the Conservative Party (he took part in the formation of the Lancaster Conservative Club), Chamberlain was elected in 1874 to represent North East Lancashire in Parliament, and sat for six years, until 1880, when the Tories lost the seat to the Liberals. In 1867, Chamberlain joined the Central Committee for the Royal Albert Asylum, which had been established in Lancaster to provide care and education for children with learning disabilities between the ages of 6 and 15, and remained an active Committee participant for the Asylum for the rest of his life. On receiving news of his death, the Asylum flew their flag at half-mast.
Ruvigny's account of Chamberlain Starkie and his children
on p. 306 of his 1911 Mortimer-Percy volume

Chamberlain Starkie is included in the 1898 Starkie of Huntroyde pedigree in the Visitation of England and Wales series, in the Starkie of Huntroyde article in the Burke's Landed Gentry series, and on p. 306 of Ruvigny's 1911 Mortimer-Percy volume. Below is an elaboration of Ruvigny's account of Chamberlain and his children, and of the 21-generation descent from Edward III for Chamberlain outlined by the marquis.

{114} Edward IV Descent for Buckeye Blake (b. 1946) & son Teal Blake (b. 1978)

Buckeye Blake (right) with son Teal Blake on his Weatherford, Texas ranch
"I think their marriage is the perfect blending, between the sagebrush and the hallowed hall. I got both of those educations between my parents: pedigree and the stain of pedigree."
---Buckeye Blake ['What History Has Taught Me: Buckeye Blake', True West Magazine, September 8, 2008]

I attended UCLA for two years, and only two courses had any lasting impact on me, neither one of which had to do with my major (psychology). The first was Urban Geography, and the other was The American West. Growing up in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, my experience was entirely suburban, but thanks to television, the Old West was never too far away. Chatsworth Park, where I would go hiking with high school friends, had been used frequently as a location by the Hollywood studios for their westerns, and Little House on the Prairie, a show my sister and I watched every week growing up, was filmed in neighbouring Simi Valley (where my sister and her family now live). But it wasn't until my parents took us on trips outside of Los Angeles, into Arizona when we were young, and then into Montana and Wyoming when we were teens, that I got a real sense of the American West - the vast and beautiful natural landscapes were breathtaking. The UCLA course put it all into perspective for me: the history of the frontier, and the history of the mystique and myth which sprang from the frontier. A couple months ago, when I began tracing the descendants of Regency-era British aristocrat Lady Anne (Townshend) Hudson, the last people I expected to find amongst them were authentic American cowboys in Texas, who not only compete in rodeos, but who, through their paintings and artwork, interpret their experience and share their vision of the beauty and mystique that is the American West.
Fire on the Mountain by Buckeye Blake
James Coke Blake was born in 1946 in Fullerton, a town in Orange County, California, twenty-five miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. His father 'Bud' Blake was a bull rider and roper who rodeoed with Richard Farnsworth, Walt LaRue, and other actors and stuntmen making westerns for the Hollywood studios. At a rodeo in Buckeye, Arizona, baby James called out the name of the town as his first word, and was called Buckeye ever since [Angela Howell, 'Headliners: Buckeye Blake', American Cowboy, August 1994, pp. 52-55]. When not on the rodeo circuit, Bud Blake was a government trapper, and the family lived on the Mexican border (Buckeye went to kindergarten in Mexico), down in the Jacumba Mountains in California, and in Ajo, Arizona, where Bud trapped bobcat. In 1956, Buckeye moved with his family to a ranch outside Carson City, Nevada. His father built a rodeo arena, and his mother, to earn money, painted murals in dance halls and also did portraits. Inheriting his mother's artistic ability, Buckeye won many school art contests. He left school in his junior year and went back out to Hollywood where he made cartoons and movie backdrops. After a year, he returned to Nevada and started selling his fine art in galleries. He married Tona Freeman, a fellow artist and photographer in 1978, and the newlyweds attended a rodeo in the tiny Rocky Mountain town of Augusta, Montana (pop. 315). Impressed with the natural beauty, the couple moved there, had a son Teal, and continued their artistic careers.
James Coke 'Buckeye' Blake
(b. 1946)

"Buckeye is known as a painter of landscapes and Western scenes. He is also known for his posterlike works, paintings with lettering that recalls the classic tourism posters during the early days of Western railroads. But Blake is a fine-art sculptor as well. His life-size bronze of Kit Carson resides in front of the Supreme Court Building in Carson City, Nevada, while a similarly scaled sculpture of Charlie Russell and his horse, Monte, can be viewed in Great Falls, Montana. His graphic designs appear on soda bottles and dinnerware; he’s even designed iron gates for a private ranch. Represented by many galleries, in 1994 he was the subject of a one-man retrospective at the Whitney Gallery of Western Art at the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming" [Chase Reynolds Ewald, 'An Integrated Life', Western Art & Architecture, Fall/Winter 2010]. Eventually, the Blakes went down to Texas with their horses for the winter months, and discovered the historic town of Weatherford, twelve miles north of the Brazos River and twenty-five miles west of Fort Worth. They now live there year-round on a 13-acre ranch. Weatherford is known as the cutting horse capital of the world, and in addition to his art, Buckeye also raises horses and trains them for cutting competitions. His son Teal Coke Blake, who grew up in Montana surrounded by Hereford cattle, cowboys and horses, first tried his own hand at art at age six, when he drew bucking horses and made little buttons from them, which he sold at the rodeos for 50 cents a piece. But bull riding was a stronger passion for him in his youth, and he left Montana State University to rodeo full-time. In 2002 at age 23, he picked up art again and began pursuing it full-time the following year. In 2009, Teal won Best of Show and took first place in watercolors at the prestigious 34th Annual Phippen Western Art Show in Prescott, Arizona for his painting of saddled horses in a red trailer, becoming one of the youngest western artists in the industry [Tonya Ratliff-Garrison, 'Western Son', The American Quarter Horse Journal, January 2009]. In 2011 Teal created an art show held in Fort Worth, celebrating the memoirs of Teddy 'Blue' Abbott. Blake’s work appeared on the cover of the Big Bend Saddlery catalogue in 2012 and 2013, his painting 'Morning Gather' was used for the cover of a new 2013 edition of Some Horses by Thomas McGuane, and the following year Teal was invited into the renowned Cowboy Artists of America organization.
In the Valley of the Sun by Teal Blake

The American West comes naturally to the father and son artists. Per Buckeye, “If you’re raised in it—I was, Teal was, my father was—it’s the West and it’s what you know. It helps to paint what you believe in; that comes across in the finished work. You’re emotionally connected” ['An Integrated Life', op cit]. The Blakes certainly have horses in their paternal heritage. Samuel Blake (1818-1878) immigrated from the Isle of Wight to the U.S. at some point before the Civil War, and settled in Arkansas. His son S(amuel) Coke Blake (1862-1951) started up a ranch in Oklahoma in 1898, where he started raising Steeldust horses. Blake bought four White Lightning mares to cross with his Cold Deck stallions, a cross which contributed greatly to the emergence of 'The Blake Horse.' He was one of the few breeders in the early 1900s to keep pedigrees on the horses he raised, which were particularly renowned throughout Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri and Kansas for their speed on the track and their ability for ranch work.
S. Coke Blake (1862-1951)
The 1930s brought the Depression, and hard times forced an eventual sale of all of Blake’s holdings, but it did not ruin the mark his horses left on the Quarter Horse breed, and in 1986 S. Coke Blake was posthumously inducted into the American Quarter Horse Hall of Fame. Blake married Georgia Anna Pharris (1866-1946), whose maternal grandmother Margaret Wa-Kee (née Downing) Gore (c.1800-c.1879) was of the Cherokee Nation. One of Coke and Georgia's sons, James Fenlon Blake (1894-1968), moved his family out to California, and James's only son 'Bud' Blake was Buckeye's father.

From his mother, Buckeye inherited his artistic ability, and from his mother's mother he inherited a descent from Britain's peerage, landed gentry, and Plantagenet kings. Violet Bond (1898-1965) was born in Dorset, England, the eldest daughter in a family of five children. At age 14, she immigrated with her parents and siblings to Arcadia, Florida, where her uncle had a large farm. It was there that she met Coleman Richard Walls (1897-1977), an intelligent young salesman who had served as a driver with the 94th Aero Squadron during World War I, and who had ambitions that went beyond his father's Arkansas farm. Violet married him in 1920 at age 19, and he moved her to New Castle, the seat of Lancaster County, the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, where their daughter Genevieve 'Dee' Walls (1921-2005) was born. The Walls went back and forth to the UK frequently to visit Violet's relatives in the early years of their marriage, and their son Richard Walls was born in Dorset in 1924. When the Great Depression gripped the U.S., Coleman Walls moved his family out West in 1934, to Whittier, a city in the San Gabriel Valley south of Los Angeles.

He continued working as a salesman. In 1939, 18-year-old Dee married William Arns, a 22-year-old farmer's son. Arns bought a farm in Okanogan County in northern Washington State on the Canadian border. Like many young married couples when World War II broke out, the Arns marriage didn't survive the War, though it did produce a daughter. Dee moved back to Los Angeles with her young daughter, and in Hollywood met cowboy Bud Blake, whom she married as her second husband and had two more children, another daughter, and a son, Buckeye. Dee's parents had loved the beauty of Okanogan County so much that they purchased a hay farm in 1941. Their son Richard Walls joined the Seabees, the Naval Construction Battalion when the U.S. entered the War, while Coleman entered local politics. He was elected County Audior. The couple lived in Okanogan County for twenty years, until 1965, when Violet Walls died. Coleman travelled a lot after his wife's death, and eventually went to live with his daughter Dee in Carson City. Dee and Bud Blake had divorced some years back, and Dee, remarried to Nick Tagliamonte, owned an art gallery. Coleman Walls died there in 1977, leaving behind his two children, five granddaughters and a sole grandson, Buckeye.

Edward IV would no doubt be pleased to number the father-son artists of the American West among his descendants. Edward was himself an expert horseman, and his winning the field at Towton (the largest and bloodiest battle ever fought on English soil) and being crowned king of England shortly afterwards, at the age of only 19, qualifies him as a kind of medieval English cowboy. Perhaps that's a stretch, but there's no doubt that Edward IV, though not an artist himself, appreciated artwork, as demonstrated by his collection of beautifully illuminated historical and literary manuscripts. Though five hundred years and seventeen generations may separate Edward IV and his descendant Buckeye Blake, a love for art, and for horses, unites them.
