THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, ELANNOR DARE, AND THE LOST COLONY
THE HOLY ROMAN EMPIRE, ELANNOR DARE, AND THE LOST COLONY
The Holy Roman Empire was the largest empire of the ancient world that lasted well over 1000 years. At its peak, its territories stretched far and wide from north-western Europe, to North Africa, and into the Near East. By its very design, the Roman Empire was multicultural. Through trade, logistical or military movements, civilian migrations, people traveled within the Empire, making their way to Britain.
In the course of his Gallic Wars, Julius Caesar invaded Britain twice: in 55 and again in 54 BC with over 32,000 Roman troops. Lucius Septimius Severus was a Roman emperor, he was born in present-day Libya in the Roman province of what is today known as North Africa. Severus traveled to Britain and in AD 209 he invaded Scotland with an army of 50,000 Roman troops. He later died outside of London, in York, England.
British geneticists have found that some men with certain surnames, which originated outside of London, in Yorkshire, carry a genetic signature previously found only in people of West African origin. All of the men belonged to Haplogroup A1a (M31), a subclade of Haplogroup A which geneticists believe originated in Eastern or Southern Africa. The men are not regarded as phenotypically African and there are no documents, anecdotal evidence, or oral traditions suggesting that they have African ancestry. It has been conjectured that
JULIUS CAESAR LUCIUS SEPTIMIUS SEVERUS
the presence of certain haplogroups may date from the Roman era when Romans from North Africa are known to have settled in Britain. The haplogroup T has been observed among ancient Egyptian mummies excavated at the Abusir el-Meleq archaeological site in Middle Egypt. Some non-basal haplogroup T clades are also commonly found among the Niger-Congo of West and Central Africa. Fossils excavated at the Late Neolithic site of Kelif el Boroud in Morocco, North Africa, which have been dated to around 3,000 BC, have been observed to carry a T2 subclade.
In 1901 in York, England, a skeleton, who would later be called the “Ivory Bangle Lady”, was discovered and subsequently dated to the second half of the 4th century AD. Buried in a stone coffin her remains were found with ivory bracelets, earrings, pendants, and other expensive possessions indicating that she held a high-ranking position within Roman York. Isotope analysis showed she had spent her early years in a warmer climate whilst her skull shape suggested she had some North African ancestry.
Bryan Sykes, was a British geneticist and Emeritus Professor of human genetics at the University of Oxford, reported "although the Romans ruled (Britain) from AD 43 until 410, they left a tiny genetic footprint." The genetics of some visibly Caucasian people living in England suggests that they are "descended from North African, Middle Eastern and Roman clans".
Geneticists have shown that former American president Thomas Jefferson carried a Y chromosome marker T (formerly called K2). This is typically found in East Africa and the Middle East. Its Y-STR (short tandem repeat) haplotype shows that it is most closely related to an Egyptian T haplotype. Thomas Jefferson's home at Monticello is located just NW of Jamestowne, Virginia.
EXCAVATIONS: JAMES FORT, JAMESTOWNE, VIRGINIA
In 1997, the skeletal remains of a female known as archeological object JR156C were excavated from within the James Fort. She was found to have been wrapped in a shroud and buried in a gabled coffin. Burial within the fort compound, gabled coffins and shrouds were reserved for those of the highest stature. Testing performed on 156C, by the Smithsonian Institute, revealed her DNA to be closest to West African descent. The female was unknown and little information was available as to who this very important female was to have had a burial of such high stature.
In the 16th and 17th centuries, a part of the English diet was what is known as Old World wheat (carbon 3 = Old World wheat). Old World carbon 3 was not available in America until after the arrival of the Jamestowne Colony in 1607. From stable isotope analysis testing that was performed on the remains of 156C, those results show Old World carbon 3 in her diet prior to her arrival at Jamestowne in 1608. JR156C was then reported to be that of Mistress Forrest.
In the 16th and 17th centuries, a part of the American Native Indian diet was what is known as New World corn (carbon 4 = corn). New World carbon 4 was not available in England until after the arrival of the Jamestown settlement in America in 1607. From 156Cs stable isotope analysis testing, those results also show New World carbon 4 for over 15 years prior to the Jamestowne arrival in 1607. The only English female in all of North America prior to 1607, was a female from the 1587 colony at Roanoke. The Lost Colony arrived at Roanoke Island in 1587 and void of any ships for supply, the colony then began their New World carbon 4 diet. Recent carbon testing on 156C, shows her to have died between 40 and 55 years of age. From the skeletal remains of 156C, a reconstruction of her face was made. The reconstructed face (below) is that of Elannor White Dare, daughter of the governor of the 1587 colony, John White, a leader of the Lost Colony, and according to the Dare stone, the only female survivor of the 1587 colony at Roanoke.
Elannor Suzan (White) Dare
Within the following pages, many period-made images of Elannor Dare have been discovered. The image (below) is from a period, chart of images titled: A Description of Part of the Adventures of Capt. Smith in Virginia. Note the resemblance to the reconstructed face of 156C (left), as well as the resemblance of her wide jaw to that of Thomas Jefferson's (above, and images below).
From the Zuniga Map, it reveals 2 different images of Elannor Dare. Note the wide jaw line in both images are similar to the jaw line in the images above. In the image (at left), Elannor Dare was in her late 20's. A later image of her, as well as her name is written on the map and is translated (at right).
To have been buried within the James Fort compound and in a gabled coffin was reserved for the highest leadership at Jamestowne. In 1526, 500 Spanish men, women, children, and African slaves settled along the Cape Fear River. Unless a female descendant of one of those African slaves held a position of the highest leadership at Jamestowne she would not have been buried within the fort compound. Unless any of the female South African slaves that arrived at Jamestowne in 1619 held a position of the highest leadership she would not have been buried in the James Fort. Elannor Dare was of the highest leadership of the 1587 colony at Roanoke. The Lost Colony and the early Jamestowne Colonists were a very unique group of people and more about just who they really were will be posted here shortly within future chapters.
Elannor Dare, aka JR156C, shows Old World carbon 3 (wheat) on top of New World carbon 4 (corn) prior to the Jamestowne arrival in 1607. How can that be? According to multiple record sources (see Chapter V), she was rescued by Capt. John Smith in 1603 where she returned to England at that time. She then returned to Jamestown in 1608 with her maid Ann Burras. Ann Burras was possibly her Weapemeoc or Powhatan Indian maid. This is why JR156C shows carbon 3 on top of 15 years of carbon 4 up until 1608. Elannor Dare was Mistress Forrest, it could be no other.
The solving of the map known as the Zuniga map, reveals much of the story of the Lost Colony. When asked the fate of the Lost Colony, 8 out of 10 people responded that "If any survived, they assimilated with the Indians and melted away into the tribes". The Zuniga Map reveals that is exactly what happened. There were also 4 men from the Lost Colony that survived the attack in 1591 and lived along Kendrick Creek on the south bank of the Roanoke River with the Tuscarora, according to the map. The Virginia Company's reports also confirm this. Reports also show that from the Tuscarora village of Hocamawanack, they sent Elannor Dare along with two Lost Colony boys to the Chowanock tribe, the Arrowhead Beach, and the Bandon property were the lands of the Chowanock. Indian burials have been found in that area and also is where the Lost Colony Chapel was located. From a section of the original map, the Indian tribe name "Paspahage" is written (below, blue circle). But upon the period, traced copy of the map, the name "Elenboys" is written instead (for Elannor and the 2 boys saved in the attack) (below, gold border, gold circle).
On a survey map, made in 1770 by Churton-Collet, the map includes the Indian Creek area (below), it also shows "Elan Boys" within the same area as it shows on the copy of the Zuniga Map. The back of the upper case letter 'E' (below left, in blue, in green circle) runs along the Chowan River shoreline where Indian Creek branches from the river. Below that is an upper case letter 'L' (in red). Then (in blue) the Roman letter 'a', then 'n', and then 'Boy s'. Below that is 'L White', for L-annor (White) Dare. That is also where the White Ferry ran during the 18th century.
According to the Zuniga Map, Elannor Dare was the king of the Paspahegh tribe. History tells us that the Paspahegh's were incorporated into the Powhatan chiefdom in 1596, about the same time King Powhatan claimed Elannor Dare from the Chowanock tribe according to the Edward Bland report. The map also shows that Elannor Dare's middle initial was 'S'. It has been discovered that the 'S' stands for Suzan. Also on the map, there appears written by the maker, in an area of the islands in the Roanoke River the following: "Suzan the King of Paspehay's reports one man to be went to see (below, right, translated in red)". A Paspehagh tribe did exist within the Powhatan tribe prior to 1596 and possibly it was that Paspahegh tribe that attacked the colony in 1591. On the chart of images titled: A description of part of the adventures of Cap: Smith in Virginia, there shows an image of Capt. Smith fighting the Paspehagh chief, the chief was taken prisoner in that fight according to the image caption. Within George Percy's publishing A True Relation, he describes a raid he led on the Paspahegh tribe with the Jamestowne Militia. Although King Powhatan did starve and kill many of the colonists prior to the attack, it may be that the attack led by Percy, against the village of Paspahegh was also in retaliation for the attack against the 24 Lost Colonists. According to the message on the Dare stone, Elannor's husband, and daughter Virginia, the first English birth in the New World, were both tortured and murdered in the 1591 attack along with 15 of the other colonists thus making that massacre by the Powhatan's the first of four Anglo-Powhatan Wars.
Elannor Dare (left) weroance (leader, chief) of the 1596 Paspahegh tribe, is standing on the west bank of the Chowan River just across from the Lost Colony chapel (inset windows, white borders). She also is shown there wearing tattoos of a weroance on both her arms and legs. Upon the map (above, right) it is written "Suzan the King of Paspehays". In this picture, Elannor is in her early-mid 30s.
"What do we really know of the accuracy of the recording of events that took place in America prior to the American Revolution and the free press?"
The 1587 colony of English families was the biggest cover-up in American history, thus known as the Greatest Mystery in American History, and it happened at the dawning of America. The Lost Colony surviving beyond Roanoke Island was covered up not because someone was going to "get into trouble." The colony was covered-up for 2 reasons that have been found thus far, the 2nd reason was probably the key reason and can be found here within later chapter publishings.
It must be taken into account that a female from the Lost Colony gave birth about every year or so. The Lost Colony males could have fathered countless children within the colony and with the Indians. The 1587 colony had 3 main objectives in America: 1) To find precious metals and gems. 2) To etch in stone the English ways of life in America. 3) To populate the New World. If any of the colonists were not able to have children they would not have been on the 1587 voyage to Roanoke.
In the Fall of 1591, the colony was attacked and 7 of the colonists survived that attack. How many kids the colonists had already with the Indians, following their landing at Roanoke and up until the time of the attack (over 4 years), is not known. How many of those English or mixed English/Indian kids died in the attack is unclear. However, the number of kids that died in the raid on the Paspahegh Village is possibly the same number of kids that died in the 1591 attack.
following years of living with the Indians and upon the arrival of the Jamestowne Colony, the survivors from the Lost Colony were rescued by Captain John Smith, Christopher Newport, and other merchant investors of the 1587 colony. When the English Royal Crown found their colony along with their kids, this is what they found (below, center), living mostly naked and covered with tattoos and under the rule of King Powhatan. This does not bode well on the World's stage for the English, or with the English, thence this is one reason the survivors from the 1587 colony were covered up.
KING JAMES I
CHOWANOAC VILLAGE (The Blond Town)
QUEEN ELIZABETH I
Note the many caucasian people in this original, period artwork (above).
From period artwork (left), it has been discovered that the artwork is that of the Chowanoac Village (The Blond Town). It was also the fort that Edward Bland plotted on his map in that area. It would also be the area that he named "New Britain" as that is where the British (Lost Colonists and their kids) were living. Within the 4 white circles (left, at bottom), those 4 annomalies match-up exactly with the 4 annomalies that still appear upon the landscape (below images, left, and right). The area in which the annomalies appear was plowed over and covered years ago for building sites. The Chowanoac Village (left) in the past has been labeled as being the Pomeiooc Village, and although upon a period map there is a village named Pomeiooc, near Roanoke Island, this artwork is not of that village. This village (left) was located on the west bank of the Chowan River, across from the Lost Colony chapel, according to those anomalies.
The artwork above shows 5 different anomalies that are identical to the 5 that appear in the image at right. Anomalie #3 is about 70 ft. in length with about a 9 ft shelf, for scale.
Image courtesy of Google Earth, Dec. 2013.
In the upper right corner of the artwork (2nd image above, #6, and below, left), there appears a small pond. That pond is located in the area where the Chowanoac Village once stood. The area within the blue outline (below, left) shows a darker shading representing the water as seen within the blue outline (image below, right). That 'T' shaped area is shallow and not always filled with water as seen in the low water level of the pond (below, left). At the blue arrow (below, right), appears a "tab" of land, that same tab appears in the image (left) where people are filling water on that same tab of land. The white line (below, right, lower corner) appears the same shape of the bank as the bank line in the image (left).
Within the full page artwork of the Chowanoac Village (3rd image above, top, left #7), in the white circle, there appears Elannor Dare. Image #7 can be seen below in the white circles. She is standing at a side-view and wearing a full-length, 16th century, English dress. Her head is within the pink outline and is turned. Her hair is blond and she is looking directly at you. It appears that she may even be blowing a kiss your way!
AMERICA, A NEW ROME
by Jon Sinatra
They sailed into a new horizon to begin a New World the Lost Colony said...The first to be born Virginia was named after the Queen they both were the same. Hard times befell no different than home the work that they did to build a New Rome. Houses they built the natives they learned they carried it on and helped with New Rome. On both sides they died that's just how it is but more kids were born a mixture they did. New towns arose just like old Rome the mixed blood of past saved our new home. We all still are here as those from the past they began a new home and still it does last. A new town arose north just off the bay they did it the same but found a new way. On both sides they died that's just how it is but more kids were born a mixture they did. This new town arose like Roanoke Her mixed blood of kids gave us new hope. The New World awoke to heaven above they look down on us and still see there's love. Four centuries have passed they still see their Rome and into the future it still will be home. They sailed new horizons they found our home there, our new Roman leader was Elyanor Dare!
