About Mary Key Waller (Pomfrett)

Virginia Magazine of History and Biography Vol. 59 No. 3 (July 1951) THE POET writes of the happy return of Charles the Second. Hammers resound with the restoration of churches throughout the width and breadth of the land. This England, tired of long years of curfewed nights, tired of wineless dinners, tired of puritanical living, welcomed back the gay and gallant Charles the Second and went about with alacrity to wipe from their lives all trace of Cromwell. England's colonies changed governors and the great upper middle class gave more thought to these colonies, a rich source of revenue and expanselessterritory for the settlement of young colonists. Yea! More and more thought was given to America.This was England; and her ships plying the seven seas overwhich she was undisputed mistress. Lying in the south-centre of this land is Buckinghamshire; adjoiningLondon and bounded on the south by the river Thames. Drained by theOuse, near the centre of this shrine, referred to as Bucks, lay theHundred of Newport. Pagnell is nearly in the centre of the Hundred andthus in the heart of England. The great road to Liverpool passesthroughPagnell and is in some parts dead flat with hedgerows on eitherside;thoughoccasional glimpses of the surrounding country-side may behadand a church spire appears between great branches of English oak.TheChurch of Walton parish, dedicated to St. Michael, wasalready anold edifice, irregular and consisting of a square tower, a naveandchancelwhen our storybegins. The low ground on which the churchstands in thisflat country-side causes it to be excessively damp,giving it a sombreair. So we find Walton, Bucks, England, in 1669. On a winter day of thatyear - January 13, to be exact - came John Waller and Mistress MaryPomfrett to Walton, to be married. Of Mary Pomfrett little is known.Welearn that William Promfrett A.B. was vicar of Astwood, May 27, 1689through December 21, 1704; and thatMr. Benjamin Pomfrett, of NewportPagnell, purchased of Sir William Tyreyham, Knt., the right ofadvowson;whilelater, Robert Pomfrett was rector of Emberton fromApril 30, 1753 until1804. Apparently John Waller and his wiferesidedin NewportPagnellfor in the register of that parish we findthe births of theirnumerouschildren recorded. The family of Waller is one of the most ancient and distinguishedamong English ancestry. There is an unbroken male line from WilliamtheConqueror's time down to the present time. An English genealogistclaims to have traced the name back to the sixth century.

The English speaking branch of the Waller's was founded by twobrothers, John Henry David de Waller and Alfred de Waller, Norman's,who came into England with William the Conqueror the year 1066 andfought with him at Hastings. John Henry David Waller was given landsin NottinghamCounty; Alfred in the County of Kent. The AmericanBranch traces descent from Alfred de Waller, of Kent, who died in 1083(Domesday Book)

Mary probably came to Virginia after the death of her husband andlived with either her daughter Mary, 1st Lady of Virginia of son, Col.John Waller.

According to "The Herndon Family of Virginia.", p 8, Mary PomfrettWaller lived next to Edward herndon and Mary Elizabeth Waller HerndoninCaroline County., Virginia.

She was born about 1648 at Newport Pagnall, Buckinghamshire, England and is said to be the daughter of William & Ann (KING) POMFRETT. She emmigrated to Virginia as a widow and probably lived with her son Col. John WALLER and is probably buried at "Newport" which was his plantation.
