In Jamaica Deeds, II, B, p113, Thomas Oakley conveyed to Thomas Burroughs his share in the Burroughs estate for 1400 pounds, 21 September, 1705 as the said Thomas Oakley is about to marry Mary (Higbie) Burroughs, widow of the said Edward. The license for this marriage was taken out 15 September 1705; and that he married her shortly afterward is proved by the fact that in the proceedings attendant upon the taking of the inventory of the estate of Edward Burroughs 2 March 1705/6 the widow Mary, now the wife of Thomas Oakley, sware to the correctness thereof. In a letter to Mr. Seversmith, Mr. Arthur Wardwell notes that in Jamiaca deed book B-1, page 378: Thomas Okley of Fosters meadow Hempstead and Elizabeth his wife of the one part and Charles Randall of the same place, mariner, and Elizabeth his wife of the other part for 120 pounds have sold 72 acres at Fosters meadow (and also 20 acres more).

25. Elizabeth
Information from Herbert F. Seversmith Notebooks. . Herbert Seversmith's Manuscript GS 929.273 (He lists dates, names, and relationships as indicated in these record) Seversmith notes that Mr. Arthur S. Wardwell thinks that the Thomas Oakley who married Elizabeth and the Thomas Oakley who married Sarah Whitehead were one and the same person. Mr. Seversmith disagrees and believes that Elizabeth was married to the son Thomas who also married Patience Skidmore.

[Some confusion still [Nov. 1995] exists respecting Thomas' marriage to Mary Higbie in 1705. Did Mary marry Thomas, Sr., or Thomas, Jr? Name also spelled as Okeley, Okley, Ackley, or Awkley. He was theancestor of the Long Island Branch of the mily in Hempstead andHuntington, NY. This branch was not traced in Horne's Oakley Genealogy. * * *
Notes from Seversmith's notebooks:
Thomas was probably a member of the Anglican Church in Hempstead, NY. He appears first in the Hempstead Town Records on December 11, 1667; he was in Jamaica, Queens County, NY on January 20, 1667/1668. He was listed also as a land holder in Hempstead, NY. The latter town granted him land between Little Pond and Beaver Pond in 1669/1670. He was also a Justice of the Peace. On May 29, 1674, Thomas Oakley with his (brother [-in-law]), Daniel Whitehead, and John Baylis exchange 20 acres for a meadow on the Little Neck owned by John Oldfield. He took the inventory of the estate of John Oakley, July 7, 1680. He was called Lieutenant in 1681; Captain in 1696. In 1682 he and his wife Sarah sold lot in Jamiaca and other lands to Edward White of Southhampton, and thereafter was a resident of Foster's Meadows in the southern part of the township of Hempstead. Elias Bayles of Jamaica with his wife Sarah deeded to Captian Thomas Oakley on 4 June 1696. (leber B, Jamaica Deeds, II, 237) and in a deed to Samuel Clowes, 2 January, 1706, he is termed "gentleman". He [must have] died in Jan. 1708-9. On 12 April 1709 his eldest son Nathaniel was named executor of his estate. (This is proof the Daniel his first born died before his father.) Thomas Oakley was a resident of Jamaica before his death. He married about 1665 to Sarah Whitehead, who may have died about 1694. He [possibly] married a second time to Elizabeth [or his son Thomas married Elizabeth and about 1695 and to Mary Higbie. She died in Monmouth County, New Jersey, between 1 January 1711/2 and 1 April, 1712, the dates of the making and probate of her will (New Jersery wills, liber 1, p. 346). She was the daughter of Edward and Jedidah (Skidmore) Higbie and had maried first to Edward Burroughs, whose children she mentions in her will.

96. Miles OKELEY (OKLYE)
Information from Herbert F. Seversmith Notebooks. . Herbert Seversmith's Manuscript GS 929.273 (He lists some of the dates, names, and relationships as indicated in these records). He was briefly a resident of Boston, Mass. from 1635-1638, when he had two children baptized ther under the name of Awkley. (New Eng. Gen. & Bio. Reg. 2 p. 76). A widow Sarah Oakley was united with the church at Charleston, Mass. 30 Aug. 1634, may have been related. See Salvage, III p. 304). Mary [Brown] Oakley (Salvage says probably Sarah) prob. m. (2). Robert Butcher alias Garret on 2 Nov. 1666 (her Dau. Elizabeth being then dead). (Seversmith then lists these children plus a Nicholas; Nicgheis oockle inhabitant 1673 of Westchester-Eastchester.)
Notes from David R. Oakley:

NY G&B Rec Vol 53 Pg 232 Miles Oakley, sen to son miles dec. 7, 1719 (Also Oklye -- Emigrated to America 1638-1639; per David A. Oakley..) Miles was briefly a resident of Boston, Massachusetts, from 1635 to 1638,when he had two children baptized there under the name of "Awkley." They were Elizabeth, daughter born in 1635, and Miles (Jr.; or IV) born onApril 1, 1638. Miles' mother's name is not known [Susan Maye; per David A. Oakley FGR231], but his father was probably a widower when he emigrated, and latermarried one Mary Van Nuyse of Staten Island, in 1662.

David A. Oakley reasons for Miles as father of Thomas:

(1) Miles the 2nd was born in 1638 and had his first son, Edward,in 1669 at Great Neck, Queens, NY.
(2) Miles names his fourth son Thomas in 1680.
(3) The theory supported by two genealogists at SL [Salt Lake{City?}] Library is that when Elizabeth and Miles were born in 1635 and1638, their parents were asked their birth date by clerks in Mass. andthat the clerks assumed they were born in Boston.
(4) Miles' birth month and year in England were the same as Boston.
(5) David A. Oakley searched a ten mile radius from Saffron at SaltLake Library along with correspondence to adjacent parishes. No Okleyentries were found from 1630-1660 in Saffron and 10 mile radius;indicating that Miles came over to Boston about 1639. David A. alsosearched IGI's of all surrounding counties and no Miles Okley was found;only in Essex and London Counties.

As to the Oakley Coat of Arms, the writer corresponded in 1964 with R. P.Graham-Vivian, MVO, MC, Windsor
Herald, The Royal College of Arms, QueenVictoria Street, London, England.

The Windsor Herald wrote in part on 13th May, 1964:

"Arms are, and always were, granted by the Sovereign to a particular individual and his descendants for ever. It therefore follows that there may be many families of the same name not entitled to any Arms because they do not descend from a Grantee. It also follows that to establish a right to any existing Arms, it is necessary to prove descent from either the original Grantee or from one of his descendants already entered on a Registered Pedigree in the College Records... It would be best if you tell me as much as you already know about your English ancestors, such as who was the first to settle in America, when and from whereabouts in England. From this I may be able to see whether your family links with anything here. Yours truly, R. P. Graham-Vivian, WINDSOR HERALD."

(I replied describing what I then had about Miles Oakley; one account ofwhich stated that he was born in
Cumberland, England on June 23, 1623.)

In his reply of 2nd July 1964, Mr. Graham-Vivian said:

"I have now made a search in the Records of the College regarding the family and Arms of Oakley or Oakeley. At the Visitation of Co. Salop [Shrewsbury] made in 1664, a Pedigree was entered beginning with Rowland Oakeley of Oakeley, Co. Salop, who had sons (1) Richard Oakeley of Oakeley, who married twice and died about 1652, (2) Samuel, a merchant in London, (3) John, of the City of Westminster [now a section within London], (4) Jeremya, a Divine. The younger sons are not followed out, but Richard had (1) William Oakeley of Oakeley, aged 32 in 1664, married but no issue shown, and (2)Rowland, a merchant in Hamborough (Hamburg?). The Arms claimed by the family were:- Argent on a fesse gules between three crescent gules, three fleurs de lis or. No Crest. Against this is the note:- "Respite given for proofe of these Armes, but no proofe made". As they were apparently unable to satisfy the Heralds that they had a right to them, they would have been disallowed. But about 115 years later [1779], their descendants got this decision reversed. On 27 May 1790, a Confirmation or Re-grant of the Arms was made, together with the Grant of a Crest. (It was quite usual for very early Arms to have no Crest.) The Grant states that Charles Oakley of Shrewsbury, Co. Salop, and son of the Rev. William Oakeley, M. A., Vicar of Holy Cross, Shrewsbury, represents, "that his family Pedigree is registered in the Visitation of Co. Salop taken by William Dugdale, Esq.,Norry King of Arms, Anno 1664, but through some neglect at that time the Arms are therein entered with a Respite and without a Crest. And that his family having used for their Crest, An arm embowed in armour in the hand a scimitar proper," he requested the favour of an Earl Marshal's Warrant that the same may be confirmed. He was granted the undifferenced Arms, and the Crest they had hithertoused without authority differenced by two crescents gules on the arm, issuing from each a fleur de lis or. This grant occurred on June 5,1790. An extensive Pedigree was entered in our Records showing their descent from the Visitation Pedigree. There is no occurrence of the name of Miles. It includes Sir Charles Oakeley, the Grantee above, who was later created a Baronet, and was Governor of Madras. This Baronetcy still continues, and the Pedigree can be seen in Burke's Peerage and Baronetcy, a printed work probably to be found in most American Public Libraries . (The College does not accept these printed Pedigrees as an authority, but they are usually right in the main, particularly in the modern part.) Burke's Pedigree goes back further than the Visitation, but only sketchily, to where the name was spelled Okeley and Ockley. There is nothing more in our Official Records to explain your Miles. It is, of course, not impossible that he was the son of some younger son who is not followed out on the Pedigree. On the other hand, he need not have been related. The name occurs in Salop [Shropshire] among quite humble people, whose ancestors probably acquired it by living on some estate called Oakeley. There is no parish of Oakleley or Oakley in Salop [Shropshire]. There is an Oakley Park at Broomfield near Ludlow, an Oakeley in the parish of Bishops Castle [Bishops Castle is itself a town in Shropshire], and another near Lydham. In 1934 a family history of the Oakeleys was privately printed by one of them. There is no Miles in it. It is not now certain which Oakeley was their chief seat, but it is thought to be the one in Bishops Castle. I am sorry I cannot be more helpful about your ancestor.

Yours truly, R. P. Graham-Vivian, WINDSOR HERALD"

Miles had 4 Wives (which kept dying on him) 1st Elizabeth 1579,2nd Dorothy Dyngley 1586,3rd Agnes Bell 1589,& Jane Bleuet 1593. The Oakley Surname came from cutting down Acleian Oak Trees about 1087 A.D. The 1st surname Aceli later changed to Ockley after 1200. There was another Main Oakley Line that started up about 1220 AD from Phillip Plowden (grandson of Richard the Lionhearted (1157)--) who changed his name to Philip Ockley, whom it is more likely that I come through because his descendants came to London abt. 1525 from Oakley Parish near Bishops Castle in Shropshire,England. It is believed that one of the 4 sons of owland Ockley came to London about 1525 to 1540 ;Rowland being a descendant of Philip. The son of Rowland was first believed to be John but he would be born in 1535 (too late too be the John that goes to London and has his first child in London in 1540. It became apparent that the correct John, would be the John Oakley who is the son of John Roger De Okeley (born 1510). A Son of Miles recently found in Merchant Taylor Book of London shows a Harry Okley Merchant Taylor in 1583, which appears to be his baptism date when compared to Timothy's entry which is identical. Miles Okeley's 4th wife found in book 942.1/L1 V26 all Vol.1 (All Hallows,London Wall Parish 1559-1675) shows burrial of Jane Ockley wife of Myles 15 Feb 1594 who died in Child Birth (pg. 129).

Sources:
1. 1994 IGI
2. Will of John Atcheley dated 18 Oct 1586 in London: SL film 91969 Names 2 Cousins Edward and John which agrees with 2 males from Francis Okeley brother to his Father Rowland.(Cousin refering to relative) Also it said Cousin John came from Onibury,Shropshire,England to London. Oniburry is down by the border of Herford just 7 miles away from Bishop Castle. The will names John Atcheley's Brother as Edward which also checks out to be correct. Also John has the same occupation as Miles (Merchant Taylor), Although Miles birth approx. 1554 could not be found in London Parish Registers it appears most likely that John is his father. John's wife was Margaret which Miles names one of his daughters Margaret.
3. Oakley Pedigree Book 929.242/Oa40 pgs: 7,12,13,37,38-42. Pedigree on pgs 12 & 13. Note: The pedigee of descendants of Philip Oakley also had Samuel & John b. 1593 & 1598 sons of Rowland Oakley/Mary Crowther who came to London & became Merchant Taylors. However, Rowland's son John (born 1535) cannot be the correct John, because the correct John is having his first child in London in 1540. John Oakley, son of John Roger de Okeley is more correct with a birth of 1510, and also as per the Will of John Atcheley, John also has a brother Edward, to agree with the will. There were 2 other Pedigrees besides the one of Phillip but the latest they went up to was 1400's and could not be connected up (also no proof these lines came to London).
4. All 70 Parishes from 1538 to 1600 in the City of London were searched for Myles Okeley's birth and came up negative (Most had Print Outs-already searced or extracted). A 5 mile radius into Middlesex from border of London – yeilding no birth of Myles or Marriages & 10 Parishes close to Bishops Castle in Shropshire were searced again negative for Myles birth.
