Black Prince (bl c 1789). Family 21. Edgar and Bruce confused him with Black Prince (whose pedigree appears in the American Stud Book) who remained in England. However, it appears that Hutton's Black Prince ([ex-Mr. Robertson's Leviathan] 1788 bl c by Mungo, out of Dunce's dam) would fit based on dates, and that he would probably have been available for export, since his owner James Hutton died in March 1798 [Pick's Vade Mecum 1793:157, 218].

E Eagle (1796). Sire Line Eclipse. Family 2.

Eclipse (GB) (1747) Family 4-b. There is no record that this horse was brought to America, nor does any pedigree contain such a cross.

This accords with the certificate brought with the colt to America. Amaryllis raced in England, and Pick credited her to the Cub mare now cited in the American Stud Book after Eclipse had left for America.

Herod (gr.c. 1792) by Young King Herod (c. by Harpur's Herod) - Conductor - Florizel - Matchem. Harpur's Herod was known as a hunter sire. The Conductor mare was sent to Jamaica. This colt was probably a hunter.

Family 4. He was imported in 1792 and Bruce routinely confused him with Hyde's *Highflyer. Cragg's Highflyer sired Lee Boo.

Highlander Brown (br.c. before 1791) by Paymaster (b.c. 1766 by Blank) - Harpur's Herod - Eclipse - Omar - Sterling - Godolphin Arabian. Imported in 1805 and stood in New Jersey. The pedigree given for the dam is improbable by the dates. Bruce entered Harpur's Herod, a hunter sire, thus the colt is most likely a hunter.

Highlander Grey (1783) Family 26. Bred by Mr. Douglas and imported into New York in 1794 by John Harriot. His dam Tetotum won the Oaks Stakes. Racing for Mr. Douglas at the Newmarket Craven Meeting of 1787, Highlander won a Sweepstakes of 100 guineas over the Ditch-in course, beating Mr. Vernon's Mufti, Lord Derby's Wren and Sir Charles Bunbury's Young Tityrus.

Iota (1854) Family 19. Bred by Mr. J. Milner and sent to New Orleans in 1859.

J Jack Andrews (1794) Family 9. Bred by Mr. Lord and imported by William Lightfoot of Sandy Point, Virginia.

Jack of Diamonds Spotswood's (b.c. c1754) by Young Hautboy (c. by Fox). His dam has not been identified. He stood in the Rappahannock Valley of Virginia from around 1758 to 1770. He sired the eighth dam of Lexington (b.c. 1850). The American Stud Book pedigree for Jack of Diamonds was a result of confusing *Jack of Diamonds with Spotswood's *Diana, who herself was confused with Bland's Duchess, who in turn was said by ASB to have also been called Diamond.

Janus or Little Janus or Stiff Dick (ch.c. 1746) by Old Janus (b.c. 1738 by Godolphin Arabian) - Fox - Bald Galloway. Bred by Mr. Swymmer and imported into Virginia about the year 1756. He was the property of John Goode, Sr. of Mecklenburgh County, Virginia, who agreed to give 150 Virginia currency for him, provided he was safely delivered at his stable in the winter of 1779 or 1780, being in the 34th year of his age. Janus started for the stable of Mr. Goode as aforesaid and progressed as far as the stable of Colonel Haynes where he died in 1780. This colt is not entered in the Stud Book or Racing Calendar. He was foaled before the issue of either. It is proposed that the Bald Galloway mare is one bred by Mr Bartlet, a brown mare called Mandaine. She may have been bred by Lord Portmore, many of whose horses were not recorded in the General Stud Book.

John Bull (GB) (1789) Family 13. Bred by Lord Grosvenor, he won the Derby. He sired *Admiral Nelson (br.c. 1795) and Ardrossan (b.c. 1809). There is no evidence that this horse came to America, since he was in the stud in England until 1812, when he was 23. A horse noted in John Tayloe's stud book as *John Bull (ro.c. 1796) imported in 1799, of the "Flanders breed," was bred by Mr. Lowe. Randolph of Roanoke describes the horse as "coach-bred."

John Bull (1833) Family 4-b. Purchased for Captain R. F. Stockton and imported in 1834 when a yearling. The General Stud Book does not credit his dam with a foal in 1833. Her last foal was by Sultan in 1831, and a note states that she was sent to Germany.

Jolly Roger (GB) or Roger of the Vale in England (1741) Family 2. He was bred by Mr. Craddock from a mare bred by Mr. Crofts. This colt was not exported.

Jolly Roger (ch.c. 1743) by Stamford's Mogul (c. by Godolphin Arabian) - Partner. He was imported by John Spotswood and his brother-in-law Colonel Bernard Moore with Creeping Kate in 1751. The Partner mare is as yet unidentified. *Jolly Roger stood the seasons 1752-58 at Spotswood's farm in Spotsylvania County, 1759-65 at Wormeley's farm in Middlesex County, 1766 at Charles Harrison's in Prince George County, 1767 at Freeman's Brook in Sussex County, 1768-69 at Allen's Mill, Brunswick County, all in Virginia. He sired the unnamed mares who became the taproots of two American mare families: A26 and A 51. *Jolly Roger died in 1769. *Jolly Roger was a distinguished sire and appears as a frequent cross in old Virginia pedigrees. The American Stud Book erroneously shows *Jolly Roger to be Roger of the Vale, an English horse. However, in a letter by John Baylor dated 2 August 1761 (ten years after *Jolly Roger's importation), Baylor describes *Jolly Roger, formerly owned by the Duke of Kingston, as running well in 1749, as is described in the Racing Calendars of the day. The pedigree given in the Racing Calendar reads by Mogul - Partner, which is the source of the pedigree given here. Another certificate gives the horse's importer as John Spotswood and his brother-in-law Bernard Moore in 1751. When the American Stud Book was being compiled the letters were unknown, and at the time, Randolph of Roanoke attempted to match *Jolly Roger with a horse in the General Stud Book. The only colt he could find who corresponded with the date was Roger of the Vale, and an explanation for his name change was never provided.

Jonah (1795). Sire Line Highflyer. Family 4.

Jordan (1833) Family 5-a. Bred by the Duke of Cleveland, his dam won the St. Leger Stakes.

Lofty (GB) Vane's (1753) Family 4-b. Bred by Mr. Panton, he was first called Deputy. This colt was not exported.

Lofty Hutton's (1760). This colt is probably the imported Lofty, however, he is not positively identified. He was imported in 1773. Harrison suggests the possibility, by race dates, that his dam was Hutton's Stately (ch f 1750) Family 8, however, since she raced through July 1759 (racing for Sir Richard Grosvenor beginning in 1757) and she also had several known foals for Grosvenor, it appears as if she went into the Grosvenor stud after her race days.

Lofty (bl.c. circa 1764) by Old Snap (br.c. 1750 by Snip) - Vane's Lofty. The colt was bred at the Leedes Stud in Yorkshire and was imported in 1769 into South Carolina. He stood at Mr. Arthur Middleton's on Ashley River in 1772.

Monarch  or Republican  (c.) by Wentworth's Ancaster (b.c. 1768 by Blank) - Old Royal - Changeling - Bethell's Arabian. The Old Royal mare isn't identified as yet, as there are probably one or more dropped crosses between her and Bethell's Arabian mare. It is quite possible the horse was a hunter. The American Stud Book erroneously gives Republican as a separate horse. *Monarch was imported in 1793, and stood at Norfolk Virginia in 1795.

Mosco (GB) (1746) Family 4. Bred by Mr. Williams, Mosco, whose pedigree is recited in the American Stud Book, was still in England at age 17 and isn't noted as being exported. It is possible Edgar confused him with Billup's Moscow.

Mousetrap (GB) or Jack Rapp  (1787) Family 8-b. Bred by Mr. Hutton, this gelding was not exported.

Even the eldest would be rather old at the time Oberon was foaled. It is possibile that the Sweepstakes mare had a sister which foaled a Ranthos filly later, or the pedigree is false.
