So shall it be with my father: he shall be
called a prince over his posterity, holding
the keys of the patriarchal priesthood over the kingdom of God on earth, even the Church
of the Latter Day Saints, and he shall sit in the general assembly of patriarchs, even in
council with the Ancient of Days when he shall sit and all the patriarchs with him and shall
enjoy his right and authority under the direction of the Ancient of Days.

    • SIR HENRY TRACY was born about 1431 of Manor Toddington, Gloucestershire, England, to William Tracy IV (1401-1460) and Margaret Pauncefort (1406-1460.) He married Alice Baldington.

      His occupation was “High Sherrif.”

      Henry Tracy died 30 June 1501, at Toddington, Gloucestershire, England, age 70.

      Gloucestershire County, England

      ALICE (ANN) BALDINGTON was born about 1434 of Addebury, then Albury or Alberbury, Oxfordshire, England, to Thomas Baldington (1413-1436) and Agnes Danvers (1418-1478.) She married Henry Tracy.

      Oxfordshire County, England

      "Her first husband was Thomas Baldington of Baldington Manor, and of Aldebury, son of William, son of John Baldington. His family was allied to that of Danvers by the marriage of his sister Agnes to Thomas Denton, of Gaversfield. Thomas Baldingtondied on August 22, 1435 (Inquis. P. M., 15 Henry VI., No. 28). His inquisition, taken at Thame, in Oxfordshire, states that his wife, Agnes, was still alive, and that his heirs were his daughters — Agnes, aged eight years; Alice, aged one year; and Isabel, aged one month. We hear nothing more of Isabel. Agnes, the eldest, is said to have married five times. Her first husband was William Browne, of Halton (Oxon, Fine 116 of 82 Henry VI.), by whom she had two children, Robert and Constance who are mentioned in her mother's will. Her second (third ? ) husband was Sir Geoffrey Gate, whose widow she was when her mother made her will in the year 1478. Alice, her sister, married Henry Tracey, of the ancient Gloucestershire family of that name, and, as appears from Oxon Fine 116 of 82 Henry VI., was also married to a John Wakehurst. In Lipscumb's 'Bucks,' vol. i, p. 206, she is called 'heiress of the Baldingtons, and heir general of the Arundels.' Her eldest son, Sir William Tracey, was sheriff of Gloucester in the year 1612, and is memorable as having been one of the earliest of the men of consequence in the country to embrace the reformed religioQ (Burke's 'Extinct Baronetcies')"[1]

      Alice passed away 15 May 1506, at Toddington, Gloucestershire, England, age 63.
