About John Alleyne, Knight, of Outwell
- From A Hisory of The Beck Family By Charlotte Reeve Conover 1907
"The Alleyne family originated with Sir Alans de Buchenhall, who held lordship of Buchenhall in Straffordshire in the reign of Edward 1. From him are descended the families of Allen, Allyn, Alleyn, and Alleyne. The crest is a horses's head out of a duel coronet, and the motto, " Non tua te moveunt, sed publiea vota" "Not thine own but the public wish," or, "Let not thine own desire, but that of others, move thee."
"The line can be traced directly back some three hundred years, with all collateral branches. The family includes names in high repute in English history and politics. They were lords of English manors, good English gentlemen, loyal to their king and their country, and equally to their own integrity and high purposes. You will find members of Parliment, vicars, scholars, philosophers, and military commanders."
- Buckinghamshire, England
The name Buckinghamshire is Anglo-Saxon in origin and means The district (scire) of Bucca's home. Bucca's home refers to Buckingham in the north of the county, and is named after an Anglo-Saxon landowner. The county has been so named since about the 12th century; however, the county itself has existed since it was a subdivision of the kingdom of Mercia (585–919).
The history of the area, though, predates the Anglo-Saxon period and the county has a rich history starting from the Celtic and Roman periods, though the Anglo-Saxons perhaps had the greatest impact on Buckinghamshire: the geography of the rural county is largely as it was in the Anglo-Saxon period. Later, Buckinghamshire became an important political arena, with King Henry VIII intervening in local politics in the 16th century and just a century later the English Civil War was reputedly started by John Hampden in mid-Bucks.
