About Otho Gilbert

  • http://www.tudorplace.com.ar/CHAMPERNOWNE.htm#Catherine CHAMPERNOWNE2
  • Catherine CHAMPERNOWNE
  • Born: ABT 1519
  • Died: 1594
  • Notes: during the reign of Henry VIII, she converted to Protestantism and refused to give up her beliefs when Mary Tudor was queen. She sat with the martyr, Agnes Prest, the night before her execution. She does not, however, seem to have been prosecuted herself. Under Elizabeth Tudor, through the influence of Catherine’s relative, Kate Astley, Catherine’s son Walter was introduced to court and made a success of himself there. Catherine continued to live in the West Country, where she kept liveried servants and a waiting woman, but she was in debt when she died. She made her will on 18 Apr 1594. She was buried in Exeter with her second husband.

  • Sir Humphrey Gilbert (c. 1539 – 9 September 1583) [1] was an English adventurer, explorer, member of parliament, and soldier from Devon, who served the crown during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I of England.[1]. One of the pioneers of English colonization, he also claimed what is thought to be the first English property in North America. He was a half-brother (through his mother) of Sir Walter Raleigh.[1]
  • Early life
  • Gilbert was the second son born to OTHO and KATHERINE CHAMPERNOWNE GILBERT of Compton and Greenway, Galmpton, Devon. His brothers Sir John Gilbert and Adrian Gilbert, and half brothers Carew Raleigh and Sir Walter Raleigh were also prominent during the reigns of Elizabeth I and / or James I. Katherine was a niece of Kat Ashley, Elizabeth's governess, who introduced the young men at court. His uncle, Sir Arthur Champernowne, involved Gilbert in efforts to establish Irish plantations between 1566-1572.[2]
