  • Notes 

    • Edward Toney was born in Totnes, Devonshire, England 10 Dec 1607.
      While Edward Toney is the earliest traceable ancestor to the Virginia Toney’s, the family itself goes back a thousand years. In Toney - The First Millennium Benjamin C. Toney traces the Toney family from Malahulcius the Uncle of Rollo. (Rollo is described as a "freebooting Norseman" who was given a tract of land along the river Seine by Charles the Simple, King of France and who took the title of "Duke of Normandy").
      Ben describes how Malahulcius, the ancient ancestor of the Toney family, most likely positioned himself near the city of Dieppe, and had a son Hugh, who styled himself as Hugh de Cavalcamp (ca. 870). One of Hugh’s sons, Ralph, was rewarded the domain of Tosny by his older brother Hugh who was Archbishop of Rouen. Ralph became "Ralph de Tosny". (Ben points out that the "s" in Tosny is silent in the modern French pronunciation).
      Ben goes on to trace the Toney’s in Normandy and in Britain describing their place in history, their many land holdings, involvement in battles and other Noble connections. He traces the noble line through to Robert, Baron de Toney, "Knight of the Swan" and the loss of the Baronage through his daughter's line to Henry VII.
      Ben attributes Robert Toney of Bromsberrow, Glouchestershire, England (son of Ralph de Toney VI) to be the likely ancestor of the Toneys in America, pointing out that in the 17th and 18th centuries approximately 70% of all Toneys in England lived within 15 miles radius of Tewkesbury and Bromsberrow. Edward's residency in Bristol, places him only a few miles from this concentration of probable Robert Toney descendants.
      Edward Toney had the following child:
      i. William Toney was born 1634.
