British Kings recorded


                         TRACING OUR ANCESTORS #11

Continued from previous page:


WHO WERE THE GIANTS?

     The giants which Brutus encountered in large numbers, as
told in the Chronicles, were no doubt the earlier Aryans, who,
under the leadership of Hu Gadarn, reached the Western Isles
almost a thousand years previous - the people who piled up the
ancient mounds and erected the circles and other megalithic
monuments. It is very likely that these early inhabitants opposed
the occupation of their homeland by the newcomers. The very fact
that the ancient name of Llandin for London prevailed instead of
Caer Troia, or Tri Novantum, seems to verify it. The Welsh
records disagree somewhat with the Chronicles, and claim that
Brutus was proclaimed king at a national convention, very likely
after he had conquered the earlier occupants of the land, and
that his three sons were named after the Three Pacific Tribes of
the Cymri, Locrinus after Loegria (England), Kamber after Kambria
(Wales), and Alban after Albania (Scotland).


BRITISH TROJANS AND THE WELSH

     Was then the old English poet Spenser only romancing when he
said, "Noble Britons, sprung from Trojans bold"? And Drayton, the
Elizabethan poet:

"... Isle of Albion highly bless'd With giants lately stored ...
Where from the stock of Troy, those puissant kings should rise
Whose conquests from the West, the world should scant suffice."

     Milton also believed in the story of the Trojan founding of
London, as shown by the words:

"O City, founded by Dardanian hands,
Whose towering front the circling realm commands!"

     Another memory of the Trojan colonization is perpetuated in
the numerous Troy Towns or Mazes cut in the turf in all parts of
England and in those which still exist in the uplands of Wales,
called by the shepherds 'Caerdroia,' the city of Troy, allusion
to which is made in "Drych y Prif Oesoedd" and in other Welsh
histories. There is nothing more popular among the Welsh, we are
told, than the belief that they came originally into this island
from Caerdroia. This tradition has impressed itself so in
indelibly on the Keltic mind that we even see shepherds on the
summit of every hillock making pictorial representations in the
surface of the grass of the labyrinthine walls of ancient Troy.
     On the plains on both sides of the Solway, mazes are also to
be met with, and as in Wales herdsmen still cut labyrinthine
figures upon the turf, which they call for no reason except that
their fathers used the same expression, the 'Walls of Troy.'

"Whether the name Troy Town was used generically for all turfcut
mazes, it is impossible to say, but it is certain that many of
them in different parts of the country were so designated, and
both in name and in form take us back to classical antiquity.
Even around London the name survives; for example, at Peckham Rye
an old row of cottages built on the site which formed part of the
Common is called Troy Town. The upper garden at Kensington was
known as the 'Siege of Troy'; it was on this site William III
laid out a topiary maze, and at about the same time he restored
Henry VIII's popular maze at Hampton Court, which that monarch   
have probably founded upon a yet earlier maze of unknown
antiquity." Gordon.


BRUTUS AND BRITISH LAW

     Brutus is celebrated in the Triads as one of the "Three King
Revolutionists of Britain." He was also Great Britain's original
law-giver, introducing the common Law that has been the
foundation of British or Saxon liberty ever since. Lord Chief
Justice Cope affirms: 

"The original laws of this land were composed of such elements as
Brutus first selected from the ancient Greek and Trojan
institutions." (Preface to Volume 3 of "Report.") Lord Chancellor
Fortescu in his work on the "Laws of England" observes:
"Concerning the different powers which kings claim over their
subjects, I am firmly of opinion that it arises solely from the
different nature of the original institutions. So the kingdom of
Britain had its original from Brutus of the Trojans, who attended
him from Greece and Italy and wave a mixed government, compounded
of the regal and the democratic."


BRUTUS LEAVES HIS MARKS

In the settlement of our country very often villages, towns,
rivers, and counties derived their names from the first family
that came, or from the place they had left behind in the Old
Country. In this way we will be able to trace English, German,
Dutch, French, Swedish, or Spanish immigrations to our shores in
centuries to come, even if all records of their coming have been
lost. Certain county, river, and town names in Old Virginia will
indicate forever that its first settlers were English; and
likewise in New York and Pennsylvania the early Dutch immigrants
left indelible records of their coming. Wherever there is a
Williamsburg, we may be sure that there is a William connected
with it. So also did Brutus and his Brits leave the evidence of
their settlement of Britain in place-names. Starting from New
Troy or London, we find Barat names radiating through the
counties of England, particularly along the ancient so-called
Roman roads, which, however, were not Roman, but of still earlier
British origin, although the Romans get the credit. The so-called
'Roman roads' bearing the old Briton names of Slane Street,
Walling Street, Erming Street, etc., are studded with ancient
Briton town sites, as we shall see; and thus presumably were
roads mentioned in the British Chronicles which were engineered
by the Ancient Britons in the pre-Roman period and merely
repaired by the Romans, to whom they are now altogether credited
by those latter-day writers who have erroneously believed that
the Britons were savages." - Waddell.

     Starting in a westerly direction from London, we find in
Kent Barat place-names such as: Bred-hurst, near Kits' Coty
dolmen and the "Roman" Watling Street; Bord-en on Watling Street,
near Milton; Britten-den. In Sussex: Burton, with prehistoric
barrows near the Roman Stane Street; Brighton, with old Stone and
Bronze Age remains and Briton coins. In Hants: Briton-den;
Barton, with prehistoric remains; Buriton, with prehistoric
earthworks; Brad-ing, on the Brading Downs. In Wiltshire: Bradon
Forest; Burton; Brit-ford on Avon, with prehistoric camps and
Stone Age remains; Bratton on Salisbury Plain, with prehistoric
barrows; Port-on, near Stonehenge, with numerous graves of early
Briton kings of the Bronze Age. In Dorsetshire: Brit-port or
Brute-port; Bride-head, with prehistoric barrows; Brad-ford near
Dorchester on Roman road. In Devonshire: Barton north of
Dartmooor; Brad-ford on Dartmoor, with Cromlech; Brid-ford. In
Cornwall: Bartine in St.Just parish, with Stone Circles; Pridden
near St.Buryan, with Menhir; Braddock, with prehistoric
interments.

     The Severn Valley was another early avenue of British
Civilization, and its Welsh bank remained largely free from Roman
domination. There was located the ancient capital of the British
kings and the seat of an Arch-Druid, Caerleon on the Usk. On the
south is Somerset or "The Seat of the Somers, Sumers, or Cymrys."

     The western promontory at the Severn Mouth is "Hercules
Point," the "Herakles Akron" of Ptolemy (or modern Hart-land
Point). The Upper Severn rises in Montgomery, which name seems to
be derived from Mount Comer, or Mount of the Cymry or Somers. In
the Severn Valley we have another series of Barat names. In
Somerset: Barret River, on which is located the Isle of Avalon of
sacred fame; Burton Pynsent, near Taunton Abbey, with prehistoric
earthworks; Bratton, east of Cadbury with ancient "camps";
Priddy, with numerous prehistoric barrows; Burthe, with Bronze
Age remains. In Gloustershire: Brito (Bristol), the ancient "Caer
Brit"; Bred-on Hill. In Worchester: Pirt-on; Bred-on, at the
Mouth of the Avon; Bredi-cott. In Monmouth: Byrdhin River at
Caerleon or Isca on the Usk. In Glamorgan: Briton Ferry. In
Montgomery: Brythen Hills, on Upper Severn.

     Prof. Waddell gives in his interesting book (from which
these names are taken) many more British place-names of Barat
origin. The professor also shows that a good many rivers,
particularly in the south of England, have been named by the
Phoenicians after the rivers and towns of their eastern home. He
says: 

"Certain it is, I find, that the majority of the chief
river-names from Totnes to the Thames, including the latter
rivername itself, are clearly transplanted namesakes from the
rivers of Epirus, whence Brutus sailed, and rivers of Troy and
Phoenicia. These Phoenician, Epirus, and Trojan names were,
presumably, bestowed thereon by Brutus or his early descendants;
just as a similar series of such names has been applied to the
Cornwall coast to the west of Totnes, and just as modern British
colonists transplant the cherished name of their old homeland to
their new colonies. Similarly, from Totnes to the Thames the
coast is studded with such Asia Minor and Hellenic Names ... The
next large river on the way to the Thames is the modern Exe,
called by the Romans under its old Briton name of 'Isca,' also
written 'Sca' which presumably preserved the old sacred name of
the river of Troy, the Sca-mander or Xanthus. That the front name
'Sca' was a separate and super-added name, and possibly a
contraction of 'Ascanios,' seems evident from the modern river
being called merely 'Mendere.' For the Sca-mander (or Sca-mandros
of Homer) was presumably also called 'Asc-anios.' This title
therefore of 'Isca' for the Exe, appears to disclose the Trojan
source of the name of the numerous favorite residential rivers in
Britain called Esk, Usk, Exe, etc. Thus the river at the site of
the Briton King Arthur's capital of Caerleon in Mommouth was
called 'Isca' by the Romans, the modern 'Usk.' And just as there
are several Isca, Esk, Usk or Exe rivers in Britain bearing this
favourite name, so there were others in the Troad and Thrace." 


ANCIENT BRITISH KINGS

     The British Chronicles give us a complete systematical list
of the kings of Britain, beginning with Brutus, and also the
length of reign of the various kings. A careful study of them
will show to any keen observer that they are perfectly reliable
and far from fictitous.  Prof. Waddell remarks: "Those lists
contain no supernatural length of reign such as disfigure some
ancient chronologies, which nevertheless, are generally accepted
as 'historical.'"   
     The following list is an extract from Prof. Waddell, who
compiled his from the British Chronicles, with the help of Dr.
Powell's and Harding's lists. Seventy-three British kings in all
are listed, of which the author selects only the following
paramount rulers of ancient England:

     Approx.   
     
     Accession

     No.   Date     Name
 
     1.    1103    Brutus

     Son of Brutus.

     3.    1069    Gwendolen       
     Regent, wife of No. 2, 
     daughter of Duke Corineus.

     5.    1014     Mempricius     

     6.    944      Ebrauc

     8.    942      Leir           
     Builds Carlisle (Caer Leil).

     9.    917      Hudibras

     and Caer Wyn or Winchester.

     11.  858       Leir II        
     (Shakespeare's King Lear).
     Built Caer Leir (Leicester).

     18   600       Kymar
     (Nebuchadnezzar comes against the Jews).

     21   473       Dunwall Molmutis
     Codefies the British Law.

     22   433       Belinus
     Ruled jointly with Brennus, his brother,
     The latter sacks Rome in 390,
     Billingsgate commemorates Belin's name.

     23   407       Gurgwin
     Meets Part-olon his kinsman and agrees
     to the latter's occupation of Scotland.

     27   351       Danus
     Pythes, Phoenician navigator, visits Britain.

     67   110       Beli 11
     or Beli Mawyr (the Great). Has three sons,
     Lud, Nennius, Cassibellaunus.

     69   59        Cassibellaunus
     Caesar invades Britain in 55 and 54 B.C.

     70   40        Tenuantius


     71   29        Kymbelin
     (Shakespeare's "Cymbeline").

     72   7 A.D.    Guiderius
     Eldest son of Kymbelin

     73-35 A.D.     Arvi-ragus
     Caradoc of Caractacus, son of Bran,
     king of Siluria. Betrayed to the Romans by
     the queen of Brigantes. 
     Clauduis invades Britain.



     R.W.Morgan gives in his book, "St.Paul in Britain," from the
Pantlivydd MSS. of Llansonnar a list of the kings of Wales and
Siluria residing at Caerleon, from Brutus through Camber to Bran,
king of Siluria. The latter, Bran the Blessed, resigned his crown
in favor of his son Caradoc to become Arch-Druid of the college
of Siluria. Caradoc became pendragon or chief king of Britain to
resist the threatening Roman invasion under Claudius. Our list
gives the kings of Loegria (England) residing in Caer Troia
(London) through Locrinus to Guiderius, whose son Caswallon also
resigned his crown in favor of Caradoc or Arviragus. It is this
line of Cambrian kings, from Brutus through Camber to Bran and
Caradoc, that Milner gives in his genealogical list.


     Prof Waddell, working the given reigns backward, fixed
thereby the coming of Brutus in 1103 B.C., which date is in
perfect agreement with the events following the fall of Troy in 
1183 B.C., as given by Eratosthenes. Prof. Waddell states in
defense of the British king-lists: "Their authenticity is
attested not only by their own inherent consistency and the
natural length of each reign in relation to the events recorded
in the Chronicles, and by their general agreement with the few
stray references by Roman writers to some of the later kings, and
with the royal kinsman and occupation of navigator, visits names
stamped upon early Briton coins, but also by their being
confirmed by the royal names on several Early Briton coins, which
names are unknown to Roman and other history; and these ancient
coins had not yet been unearthed, and thus were unknown, at the
period of Geoffrey and other early editors of these Chronicle
lists of the Early Briton kings."

     Another independent witness to testify to the coming of
Brutus and the approximate date is supplied by an inscription in
the vestry of the church of St.Peter-Upon-Cornhill in London,
which gives us 1120 B.C. for the coming of Brutus, which differs
only seventeen years from the dates fixed by the Chronicles:

St.Peter-Upon-Cornhill: 

"Bee it known to all men that in the year of 
Our Lord God 179 Lucivs the first Christian King 
of this Land, then called Britaine founded ye first 
Church in London that is to say ye Church of St.Peter 
Upon Cornhill and he founded there an Archbishops 
See and Made that Church ye Metropolitane and 
Chiefe Church of this Kingdome and so it indured ye 
Space of 400 yeares and more, unto the coming of 
St.Austin the Apostle of Angland the which was sent 
Into this land by St.Gregorie ye Doctor of ye Church in 
the time of King Ethelbert and then was the Arch 
Bishops See and Pall removed from ye for said Church 
of St.Peter-upon-Cornhill unto Dorobernia that
Now is called Canterburie and there it remaineth
To this day and Millet a monke which came into this land with 
St.Austin [Augustine] hee was made the first
Bishop of London and his see was made in Pauls 
Church and this Lucivs king was the first founder 
of St.Peters Church upon-Cornhill and
Hee reigned king in this land after brute (Brutus) 
1245 yeares and in the yeares of our Lord God 
124 Lucivs was crowned king and the yeares
of his reigne were 77 yeares and hee was
Buried (After some Chronicles at London and after 
Some Chronicles hee was buried at Glocester in that 
Place where ye Order of St.Francis Standeth now").

     The evidence produced so far regarding the colonization of
Britain by the Phoenician Barats or Israelites allows us to view
in a better perspective the naval enterprises of Hiram and
Solomon, who ruled one hundred years after the coming of Brutus.
(Solomon reigned from 1010 to 970 B.C). That Spain, the ancient
Iberia, was a Hebrew-Phoenician colony is well known, and now it
is evident that Britain was also a part of that splendid colonial
empire of Tarshish, supplying the mother-land with tin, silver,
iron, amber, and other products. If Britain was not tributary to
Solomon, then it was at least an independent part of an early
British commonwealth of nations held together by the bonds of
blood relationship, common laws, institutions, and ideals, like
the present great commonwealth of nations, the British Empire and
the United States.

     Pascoe Goard in his book "The Kingdom of God" speaks of this
period of Solomon's maritime expansion: 

"The probability is that the origin of the Trinity House
organization, the beginnings of which are shrouded in the mystery
of early days, must be assigned to this time, as indeed tradition
does so assign it. There may be found many enlargements of the
charters of Trinity House, but not one has found its beginning.
Perhaps if there shall be found by the Palestine Exploration
Society, or otherwise, the archives of Solomon's reign, the
origin of the Trinity House Charter will be found among the
documents of that reign. We are more intimately connected with
the past, back to three thousand years ago, or more, than most
people imagine, or will be prepared to admit. This will no doubt
become more and more clear as the years go by."

     In these chapters it is the author's intention to coordinate
some of the findings of the various authorities on the origin and
antiquities of the Celto-Saxon or British-Saxon Race, and to lay
them before our intelligent reading public in the hope of
arousing their interest in the noble heritage that is theirs. In
order to lend authority to my work it was necessary to quote to a
large extent from the authorities themselves. The term of
"Anglo-Saxon" does not properly express the origin of our Race,
as the Angles were but a small group of emigrants to the British
Isles; in fact, they were only a sub-clan of the Saxons, as will
be shown later. Large numbers of Celtic, Saxon, and Gothic people
remained on the continent, and are therefore descendants of
Israel of old. However, the early British or so-called Celtic
element of our ancestry is by far the largest. Although we of
America do not call ourselves British and have had several
quarrels with the mother country, yet we are part, and today a
very important part of God's Covenant Men; and we cannot deny the
Hebrew/Phoenician roots of British.

     It seems more than strange, perhaps uncanny, that the people
of Britain and the United States have interested themselves so
little in the antiquity of their race. Their scholars and
explorers have gone far afield to explore ancient Babylon,
Assyria, Egypt, Greece, and other ancient countries. Their
civilizations have been unfolded before us, their languages have
been deciphered, and the names of many of their kings are
familiar; but in antiquities of their own race our scholars are
not interested. Stonehenge and other British monuments the
average Eglishman walks around. The treasures of Tut-ank-amen's
tomb excite the admiration of the world, but the equally fine
workmanship of Celtic, Saxon, and Gothic ornaments, utensils, and
weapons, collected in the British Museum and in the museums of
Copenhagen, Stockholm, Gothenburg, and other northern cities are
entirely unknown to the race to whose ancestors they belonged.
     Many a British or American Ph.D. has earned his Doctor's hat
by his dissertation on the idiosyncrasies of the Latin, Greek,
and Hebrew languages, but it would be interesting to know whether
any of our Ph.D.'s know how many of our English words have
Hebrew-Phoenician roots. How many learned Doctors could tell
whence the term British or Saxon, came? How many English college
graduates could tell the origin of the names Cornwall, Avebury,
London, Colchester, Bristol, Canterbury, Dunbarton, York, Keith,
Casey, Scott, or Avon (there are no less than ten British rivers
by the name of Avon)? 
     Any who studied Greek will know the names of Greek
battle-fields and rivers, but it is very doubtful whether any of
them would know that the Thames got its name from the Thyamis in
Epirus, and the Esk, Usk, and Axe rivers of Britain derive their
names from the Scamander of Troy, as Prof. Waddell has shown.
     Uncanny it is indeed that the British or Celto-Saxon race
takes so little interest in its past; but it is part of the
program of "modern thought" and "higher education" that the
natives of Britain before the Roman invasion must be "Painted
savages roaming wild and naked in the woods," like the natives of
New Guinea and the Congo do today. Prof. Waddell remarks: "So
universal is this capricious attitude of modern writers, the one
following the other often presumably without having examined the
texts, that even the editor of the commonest English Edition of
these Chronicles, Mr.Giles, loses no opportunity in preface and
footnotes to disparage his text."

(This was indeed the sate of historical writers of England when
Haberman wrote this book. Fortunately, this is not the state of
things today, as the Welsh and Scotish, especially the Welsh have
proved their recorded history is true, hence the English and
British now admit the true history of the B.C. Britton. The Welsh
tourist store are full of the riches of Welsh history, hence the
history of the British before the Romans managed to gain a foot-
hold on that Island - Keith Hunt)


     Once our "broad-minded" critics admit the existence of
British civilization before the Romans and British descent from
the Hebrew/Phoenicians and other eastern Aryan tribes, the whole
artificial structure of our evolution from primates collapses
like a cardboard house, and some of our theology also. Every
evidence is on our side, and only a rigidly enforced program of
keeping the reading public in ignorance upholds this pre-Roman
British "Savage Story."

     Strabo, the Greek geographer, and the contemporary of
Kymbelin, left us a good description of a Briton of his time:

"He came, not clad in skins like a Scythian, but with a bow in
his hand, a quiver hanging on his shoulders, a plaid wrapped
about his body, a gilded belt encircling his loins, and trousers
reaching from the waist down to the soles of his feet. He was
easy in his address; agreeable in his conversation; active in his
despatch; and secret in his management of great affairs; quick in
judging of present accuracies; and ready to take his part in any
sudden emergency: provident withal in guarding against futurity:
diligent in the quest of wisdom; fond of friendship; trusting
very little to fortune, yet having the entire confidence of
others, and trusted with every thing for his prudence. He spoke
Greek with a fluency, that you would have thought he had been
bred up in the Lyceum, and conversed all his life with the
Academy of Athens."
