Biography Sir Cheney Culpeper of Leeds Castle, 1601-1663
Sir Cheney Culpeper's family origins were in Kent, and as an eldest son he expected to inherit the large estate of his family. He trained as a lawyer, with, amongst others, Sir Robert Honeywood, and was knighted in 1628. In the late 1620's and early 1630's he became engaged in supporting the cause of Continental Protestantism, through promoting the Palatinate and serving Queen Elizabeth of Bohemia. This connection was probably instrumental in leading him towards the circle of Samuel Hartlib, in the early 1640's, of which he soon became an integral member. In 1641 he was already helping to finance Hartlib's intellectual and educational activities.

Throughout the 1640's, Culpeper's letters to Hartlib indicate his sympathy with the diverse areas of reform and activity which engaged the Hartlib circle. These included education and learning, exemplified by the Office of Address, as well as technological innovation and scientific experimentation. His contact with Benjamin Worsley was mainly based on their shared interest in chemistry, alchemy, and husbandry, all of which were aspects of Worsley's saltpetre project. Worsley was in fact one of many innovators whom Culpeper was interested in, one other prominent example being William Wheeler.

Culpeper's letters also contain much commentary and opinion on the political events of the day. Culpeper was always on the side of parliament, but throughout the 1640's his opinions became increasingly radical until he came to adopt a strongly anti-monarchical outlook, which combined with his distrust of episcopacy and presbyterianism to associate him clearly with the 'Independents'. However, like most others of this political leaning, Culpeper was not a doctrinaire republican. He interpreted political events in an apocalyptic sense that could encourage him to use rather extreme language and imagery in his judgements. Unfortunately, Culpeper's support of the parliamentarian cause in the 1640's and '50's caused him to be disinherited, and he thus never attained the riches at one time he had expected.

Although he was never became an active politician, like Worsley, he was associated with the 1650 Council of Trade, of which he was a member along with Sir Robert Honeywood. We have no record for his precise activities on this body, but probably at this time Hartlib published an anonymous discourse probably by Culpeper, attached to another pamphlet, supporting William Potter's proposal for a land-bank, An Essay upon Master W. Potters Designe. His longstanding interest in agricultural improvement and technological innovation would also have been likely interests when on the Council.

After the dissolution of the Council of Trade, Culpeper remained an associate of Hartlib and his circle. Throughout the 1650's his main interest seems to have been in agricultural issues, specifically innovations in methods of husbandry. He never managed to regain his familial inheritance, and died, indebted, in 1663.5 
Death*circa 1 Apr 1663 He died circa 1 Apr 1663. 
Burial*2 Apr 1663 His body was interred on 2 Apr 1663 at Temple Church, London, England
Biography* O.s.p.m.s.

He was baptized in Hollingbourne, July 15, 1601, as 'Cheanye, filius Thomae Culpeper;' matric. at Hart Hall, November 6, 1619, 'aged 17' (Foster) ; admitted to the Middle Temple, May 7, 1621, as 'only son' of his father (Hopwood, ii, 662). When he came of age in 1623 his father purchased Wigsell for him from Sir John, afterwards first Lord Culpeper (Close Roll 21, Jac. I, pt. 26). Knighted by Charles I, September 8. 1628, at Farnham (Metcalfe, p. 189), on July 9, 1629, he was sent to the Hague to carry a letter of condolence to the Queen of Bohemia on the death of her eldest son (Cal. State Papers, Dom. 1629-31, pp. 7, 509).

In October, 1632, he m., in London, his cousin Elizabeth, dau. of Sir John Stede of Harrietsham (the marriage license read 'The Rt. Worshipful Sir Cheney Culpeper, Kt. bach., 28, and Mrs. Elizabeth Steede, spr., 18, her parents being dead, consent by Lady Steede, her mother-in-law, and Dr. Steede, her uncle,' Harl. Soc. Pubs., xxiii.208; xxvi, 308). His first three children were baptised in Harrietsham.

During the Troubles, alone of his family, he adhered to the Commonwealth. On October 21, 1651, the Council of State voted to restore Leeds Castle to him as 'the proprietor, a gentleman well affected to us' (Cal. State Papers, Commonwealth, xvi, 589). Meanwhile, in August, 1650, he had been appointed one of the Commissioners for regulating Trade, and in June, 1659, served also on the Commission for the Militia of the City of Westminster (Acts and Ordinances of the Interegnum, 1642-1660, ed. Firth, ii, 403, 1290). Although during the remainder of his life he was known as 'of Leeds Castle' (e. g., on the pedigree of his daughter's husband 'Cage of Bersted,' returned at the Visitation of Kent, 1663), he was ruined by the Restoration, and when he died in 1663, without a will, his estate was administered by his creditors (P.C.C. Admon. Act Book, 1663, and again, 1691, d.b.n.) He was buried in the Temple Church 'at the entrance into the north isle the second of April, 1663 (Inderwick, Inner Temple Records, iii, 445). His widow survived until 1674, when her will (P.C.C. Bunce, 74) was proved.

His only son, Thomas, was baptised in Harrietsham, March 9, 1636/7, and buried in Hollingbourne on February 8, 1637/8. He had also four dau. of whom the youngest m. her cousin german, Sir William Cage of Bersted.6

Her first appearance is, therefore, in her mar. lic. at Canterbury, June 14, 1617, 'Walter Harlackenden of Funstall and Paulina C. of Hollingbourne, virgo. at Hollingbourne or elsewhere in dioc. Cant.' The Hollingbourne register records the in. June 16, 1617, 'Mr. Walter Harlaccenden, generosus, and Pelina Collepeper;' the baptism October 4, 1624, Of 'Thomas, the s. of Walter Harlackenden, Gent;' and the burials, November 26, 1625, of 'Paulina, the wife of Mr. Walter Haerlackenden, ' and December 20, 1628, of 'Walter Harlackenden, Esq.'
.
While owning property in Kent, the Harlakendens were a family long established in Essex. See their full pedigree in Topographer and Genealogist, i, 228, 395; ii, 215, where it appears that it was the son of Paulina Culpeper, whose baptism is recited above, who (as noted infra) m.

In May, 1651, 'Dame Judith Culpeper' appeared before the Committee at Goldsmiths Hall to attempt to secure release of some of her husband's estate (Cal. Com. Compounding, 1643-60, pt. ii, p. 1289) and a few weeks later had a pass to go to France (Cal. State Papers, Dom. 1651, p. 527). There she joined her husband, and, as she is not referred to in her husband's will, must have died before the Restoration.

Biography On 24 Mar 2006, Bob Ford wrote:
     ""Sir Thomas FREKE is especially important to we American FRAKES because he was named one of the Council for Virginia in 1607. He later was a member of the Virginia Company. More on this later. He had vast holdings, which included the manor of Shroton and of Hinton St. Mary. He was very generous to the churches, ten of which he was responsible for. He built churches and added to several. He was greatly loved by his children. His two surviving sons, Raufe and William (both of whom married CULPEPER sisters, the CULPEPER family for whom the county in Virginia is named), built a very beautiful memorial to him and their mother in the Church of Shroton. I include the memorial here, as it not only is beautiful but it also shows their love for their parents.

     Remember, John Ford and John Freke were business partners.
     From the MA Archives I was informed that the documents are now on microfilm at the LDS, and the archives can no longer make copies.

On the north side of the (Westminster Abbey's South Choir) aisle is a monument which Dame Frances Norton, d. 1731, widow successively of Sir George Norton (d. 1715) of Abbotts Leigh, Som., of the latter's cousin Colonel Ambrose Norton (d. 1723), and of William Jones, Esq., erected to her two sisters: (Mrs) Elizabeth Freke, b. c. 1650, d. 1714, wife of her kinsman Percy Freke, Esq., of West Bilney, Norfolk; and (Mrs) Judith Austin, d. 1716, widow of Robert Austin (or Austen), Esq., of Tenterden, Kent. The three sisters, who are all buried in the nave, were daughters of Ralph Freke, Esq., of Hannington, Wilts., and of Cecily, his wife, daughter of Sir Thomas Colepeper of Hollingbourne, Kent. Next is a monument to Lady Norton's daughter Dame Grace Gethin, d. 1697, aged twenty, wife of Sir Richard Gethin, 2nd Bt. After Dame Grace's death a book of devotions was published, purporting to be reflections noted down by her'with a pencil at spare hours, or as she was dressing'; it was prefaced by a poem written in her honour by Congreve. The work, in fact, is a compilation from Bacon and others. An anniversary sermon is preached in her memory in the Abbey every Ash Wednesday. Buried at Hollingbourne, where there is a similar monument.

     Thomas Culpeper
     Signed , Sealed and published in the presence of Sir John Shiloon, Rob Wood, Lydia Chillmar.6,7 
Death*circa 26 Sep 1697 He died circa 26 Sep 1697. 
Burial*27 Sep 1697 His body was interred on 27 Sep 1697 at Hollingbourne, co. Kent, England
Biography* He was baptised in Hollingbourne, November 3, 1625, as 'Thomas Culpeper, s. of Sir Thomas Culpeper,' and matriculated at University College, Oxon, April 27, 1640, 'aged 14,' being almost contemporaneously elected to a fellowship of All Souls; from which the Parliamentary commissioners ejected him in 1649 (Foster). He proceeded B.A., February 8, 1643/4, and M.A., May 26, 1653. Meanwhile, on December 1, 1647, he was 'specially admitted' to the Middle Temple as 'Mr. Thomas, second son of Thos. Culpeper of Hollingbourne, Kent, Knt.' and on November 22, 1661, 'Sir Thomas Culpeper [was] called, of grace, to degree of the Utter Bar' (Hopwood, iii, 958, 1167).

The last entry shows that he was knighted by Charles II soon after the Restoration, but he is not recorded by LeNeve or Shaw.

After his father's death he retired to Hollingbourne and devoted himself to editing, republishing and enforcing his father's works against usury, publishing, incidentally, Moral Discourses of his own (See the bibliography in Athanae Oxon, iv, 447; D. N. B. re-issue, v, 287).

In 1679 he was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant for Kent and served that office until 1693, when his commission was withdrawn in consequence of his tory politics (Cal. State Papers, Dom., 1679-80; 1693).

He was buried in Hollingbourne, September 27, 1697, as 'Sir Thomas Culpeper, Kt.' and left a will which was proved as P.C.C. Pyne, 274.1 
Biography The third son, Sir Thomas Culpeper the younger (1626-1697), inherited Greenway Court. He entered as a commoner of University College, Oxford, in 1640; received a B. A. in 1643; traveled abroad, and was subsequently elected probationer-fellow of All Souls College.

He was knighted soon after the Restoration; retired to his estate on his father's death in 1661, and died there in 1697. His will, dated March 1696, was proved 7 Dec 1697. He was married, and left three sons (Thomas, William, and Francis) and three daughters. Besides editing and writing a preface for his father's tract on usury (1668), he published many pamphlets on the same subject, repeating his father's arguments. In 1668 appeared his Discourse showing the many Advantages which will accrue to the Kingdom by the Abatement of Usury, together with the absolute necessity of reducing interest of money to the lowest rate it bears in other countries, and later in the same year he issued a short appendix to this treatise.

Thomas Manley controverted Culpeper's view in Usury at Six percent examined, 1669, and as anonymous writer argued against him in Interest of Money mistaken, 1669.

Culpeper replied to Manley in detail in The Necessity of abating Usury reasserted, 1670. Culpeper also issued Brief Survey of the Growth of Usury in England with the Mischiefs attending it, 1671; Humble Proposal for the Relief of Debtors, and speedy Payment of their Creditors, 1671; Several Objections against the Reducement of Usury... with the Answer, 1671.

Culpeper was likewise the author of a collection of commonplace reflections entitled Essayes or Moral Discourses on several Subjects. Written by a person of honour, 1655 and 1671, and a tract Considerations touching Marriage, is also attributed to him.
