From a letter of Rachel Ann Huffam,daut.of Christopher Huffam-Uncle to Wm Henry Huffam,a first cousin of Rachel & Grandfather to I.W. *
Elizabeth daughter to Earl of Beverley, and wife of Solomon Hougham was buried in the Vaults of St Anne', Limehouse,BUT under her MAIDEN NAME which is not known. She is said to have been a Baptist and the daughter of the Earl of Beverley-attainted for his Jacobite tendencies." Miss Rachel Huffam has a copy of the "London Daily Post & Advertiser" dated 1 Dec.1737 which her Grandmother has told her
was her Grandfather's birthday—her Grandfather is Solomon Huffam-the Rigger.——The Earl's family mansion was in St Jame's Square-his title and lands were confiscated for not taking the oath of allegiance to the reigning
sovereign-King George I.-They were believed to be Roman Catholics." TRADITION,Christopher Huffam once found papistical papers in his Mother's drawers and destroyed them."

The reason why we believe the chandler's wife to be an Elizabeth Beverly,because some one of that name was pay­ing rates in Parish of Limehouse in 1732-3,and in 1734 the name stops,but ELIZABETH HUFFAM is mentioned in­stead.Besides E. Beverley was always known and spoken of in the family—-but after all these years things get forgotten and the old generation who could have told us everything,have all passed on."

DEC 2009 It has been pointed out that the dates of the first Earl of Beverley 1750 - 1830 are too late for the Earl to be Elizabeths father. However the Earls father Hugh Percy married an Elizabeth Seymour and as the Seymour part of the name is used several times by the family there must be a connection somewhere. 
Beverley, Elizabeth (I501)

From Mullins family history - General Notes: Solomon II, born in 1736, established himself in Narrow Street as a ship's
rigger. When Solomon II made his will in 1802, his wife, Rachel, and six of his children -
Christopher, William Henry, and Seymour; Rachel, Loretta and Carolina - were living. His
eldest son, Solomon III, had died at the age of 26, and another son had died as a baby. In this
sixteen-page will, Solomon mentions properties in several locations in Limehouse, including
his own house, his warehouse, at least one wharf, and buildings rented out to other
tradespeople. He owned, however, only a third share in the family business; the other two
thirds being owned by Christopher and William Henry. Solomon II had taken his now-eldest son, Christopher, as a partner in about 1794, and, in the
trade directories, advertised as HUFFAM & SON. Even after Solomon's next son, William
Henry, became a third-share partner in the firm, and even after Solomon's death, the
directories frequently retained the old name, and to the family's twentieth-century descendants
the firm was still HUFFAM & SON. Christopher clearly re-created the business during the
1790s, and it was his determination that allowed them, at a time when England's survival
depended on the efficiency of her fighting ships, to boast themselves 'Riggers to His Majesty's
Navy'. The Huffam family must have felt they had played an important role in England's naval
victories over the French. Solomon II, however, did not live to learn of Trafalgar, nor to watch
the funeral barge as it passed by Limehouse. Nor did Christopher's wife long enjoy the firm's
success; she died in 1806.
After their father's death, Christopher and William Henry continued as partners. The firm,
however, began to fail. In 1811 both brothers were declared bankrupt and each spent some
months in the King's Bench Prison, between them owing debts of several thousand pounds.
After William Henry died in 1814, Christopher moved into new premises at 4 Garford Street,
Limehouse Hole, but, perhaps because the firm could not recover from the disaster of 1811 or
perhaps because their services were no longer in demand, in 1824 Christopher again
suffered the humiliation of bankruptcy. He seems to have been spared imprisonment for a
second time, however, and he managed to continue in trade for another 10 years.
William Henry and Seymour, were both members of Lloyd's, and Seymour was well known as
a stockbroker in the 1820s
Solomon was a rigger to the navy dueing the Napoleonic wars.He managed to rig a Man-OWar
in one day and King George was said to be so happy that he offered to knight Solomon.
He owned several tenaments and warehouses in Stepney and Limehouse." 1828- From

Manor of Shelving



Four years after the taking of this survey, the bishop was disgraced, and all his estates were confiscated to the crown; after which the seignoryof these estates was granted, among others, to the family of Crevequer, and made a part of their barony, which consisted of lands assigned by the Conqueror, for his assistance in the defence of Dover castle, and were held of the king by barony.
Of the Crevequers, as chief lords of the fee; these estates were again held by the family of Malmaines, who were succeeded in one part of them, afterwards called the manor of Woodnesborough, by one of the name of St. Ledger; and in the other, then called Selinge, by owners of the same name; and at the latter end of king Henry III's reign, Nicholas de Selinge, and the heirs of John St. Ledger, as appears by the book of knight's fees in the Exchequer, held them by knight's service; the arms of St. Leger, being Azure, a fret, argent, a chief, or, were formerly in the windows of this church, of Hamo de Crevequer; the part of the formerdescended to John de Shelving, for so the name as well as the estate was then called, and he erected a mansion on it for his residence, which afterwards bore the name of Shelving, and died possessed of it in the 4th year of king Edward III. leaving the possession of it to his wife Benedicta, daughter and coheir of Robert de Hougham, of Hougham, near Dover. The part of the latter descended to Edward de St. Ledger, on whose death, his son Thomas de St. Ledger succeeded to it, who with Benedicta de Shelving possessed this estate in the 20th year of that reign. From St. Ledger the manor of Woodneshorough afterwards passed by sale into the name of White, one of whom, Robert White, died possessed of it in the 12th year of king Henry VIII. and from Shelving, the estate of Shelving was afterwards alienated to Dynely, or Dingley, as the name was variously called and spelt; and in king Henry VIII's reign Henry Dynely was in possession of it; at which time it paid ward to Dover castle. After which their respective heirs joined in the sale of both to Knight; from which time I find no further mention of the manor of Woodnesborough, but of the manor of Shelving only, which in the beginning of king Charles I.'s reign was the property of Edward Knight, gent. who died in 1632, leaving two daughters his coheirs, who seem to have divided this estate between them; that part, with the manor and court-lodge, still retaining the name of Shelving; the other, from its situation, taking the name of Churchgate sarm. This latter estate afterwards came at length into the possession of Christopher Ernest Kien, esq. lieut. colonel of the horse guards, who died possessed of it in 1744; upon which it descended to George Cousemaker, esq. whose widow Mary marrying Sir Thomas Pym Hales, bart. he became possessed of it, and died in 1773; upon which his widow, dame Mary Hales, above-mentioned, is now again possessed of it for her life; after which it will descend to her son by her first husband, lieut. colonel George Cousemaker.
The manor of Shelving was very soon afterwards sold to Solomon Hougham, gent. of Sandwich, who died possessed of it in 1658. He was a younger son of Richard Hougham, of Weddington, in Ash, by Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Sanders, gent. of Norborne; from whose youngest son Henry, descended the Houghams, of St. Martin's, in Canterbury, which branch of the Houghams bear for their arms, Or, five chevronels, sable. Solomon Hougham above-mentioned, was succeeded in it by his eldest son Richard Hougham, gent. of the same place, who died possessed of it in 1662; not long after which, it appears to have passed into the possession of John Grove, gent. of Tunstall, in right of Mildred his wife, who died in 1677. (fn. 1) After which it descended to his grandson Richard Grove, esq. formerly of Cambridge, but afterwards of the Temple, London, who dying unmarried a few years ago, and having no near relations, devised it, with the greatest part of his estates, to Mr. William Jemmett, gent. of Ashford, and William Marshall, the latter of whom, on a division of these estates, is now become the sole possessor of it. A court baron is held for this manor.

M.D. Nash 1987 - Settler Handbook

"No. 43 on the Colonial Department list, led by George Dyason, a wine merchant of Ramsgate, Kent, whose London address was 12 Old Cavendish Street. George Dyason was the nominal head of a party consisting of six equal partners - the four brothers George, Isaac, Robert and Joseph Dyason, Samuel Bennett and Hougham Hudson - and 14 indentured labourers. The party was recruited in Kent; in his memoir, 'Rough outlines of the life of a British settler', Isaac Dyason junior called it 'the Isle of Thanet party'. He claimed that it owed its selection to the influence of Sir William Curtis, one-time Lord Mayor and Member of Parliament for London, and Stephen Lushington, MP for Canterbury, after whom the party's location in Albany was named. The Colonial Department received other recommendations for the Dyasons from the Ramsgate parish authorities and a well-connected acquaintance of the family who involked the interest of Henry Clive, MP for Montgomery, on their behalf.

Deposits were paid for 20 men, and after an unsuccessful attempt by Robert Dyason's creditors to prevent him from leaving the country, the party embarked on board the Zoroaster at Deptford in December 1819. Departure was delayed for several weeks by the freezing of the Thames, and until a thaw set in the ship was unable to drop down the river. She finally sailed from the Downs on 12 February 1820, arriving in Simon's Bay on 30 April. The Zoroaster's charter terminated at this point, and the party was transshipped to the Brilliant for the voyage to Algoa Bay, which was reached on 15 May. The 3-year-old son of Henry Gray died at sea in the Zoroaster.

The party was located on the right bank of the Torrens River and named its location Lushington Valley. After complaints about inadequate food and clothing on the one part and insubordination and idleness on the other, most of the labourers deserted their masters or were dismissed, and the partnership was dissolved in June 1821".

1 "From: Russell Hudson Subject: Re: HOUGHAM HUDSON Date: Sun, 22 Mar 1998 21:54:10 +0200 Hi Lorraine and other cousins, I am descended from a line of Hougham Hudsons (pronounced Huffam) and am naturally looking for any additional information. My ancestors start with Hougham Hudson who married Ann in the U.K. on the 19th March, 1769. Their son was Hougham Hudson who married Mary Hugget on the 16th February, 1792 - she died in 1813, probably in Broadstairs near Canterbury, Kent in England. They had the following children: Sarah Hudson Mary Hudson Ann Hudson Thomas Hudson Hougham Hudson born 10th May 1798 died in South Africa 5th July, 1860 he married Elizabeth Ann Walker. Richard Hudson William Hudson born in Broadstairs, Kent, England in July 1809 died in South Africa 6th April 1854. Hougham and William emmigrated to South Africa in 1820. I am William Hudson's Great Grand Child."

There is obviously a connection between the Hougham and Hudson families but I have not yet establised where it lies. I have an extensive family tree for the Hudsons which I will post to the Hougham family tree when the link is found - RY

Matric. pens. from MAGDALENE, Easter, 1617. Doubtless s. of Richard, of Ash, Sandwich, Kent. Bapt. there, Jan. 1, 1599-1600. Mayor of Sandwich, 1639. Married, at Birchington, Kent, Dec. 6, 1619, Mary Beake, of Northbourne. Died 1659. (Vis. of Kent; Hasted, IV. 231; H. G. Harrison.)


Ireland has him as son of Michael and Judith Austen. Given that Michael died 1583 and Solomon was born 1599
. This is impossible.

A solomon is clearly included in the will of Richard 7 Oct 1606 - RY

Mayor of Sandwich 1639.

He is recorded on Knights visitation of Kent 1619-1621 as son of Richard.
He is recorded on Knights visitation of Kent 1663 as Solomon Hougham of Ash " with his marriage to Mary Beake
and his son Henry of Ash who signs the statement.
He is recorded in register of Baptisms of Ash church 1600 Jan 1 Solomon son of Richard Hougham.
He is recorded on the allegation for his marriage licence, Canterbury thus "Solomon Hougham of Northbourne , gentleman bachelor about 20 years and Mary Beake of same parish maiden about 21 years her parents being all of them dead married at Birchington, 4 December 1619
He purchased the manor of Shelving (Alias Woodnesbury) in Eastry in 1632 and died of the plague in 1658. He was succeded by his eldest son Richard.
He is recorded in the will of his sister Ann which was proved 21 Jan 1661. She also mentions his son Henry father of his grandson Solomon. Thus" Solomon Hougham, son of my nephew Henry Hougham"
He is recorded on the will of his son Solomon of Barton Court Canterbury dated 7 July 1694 who desires to be buried near" my late father and mother in the chancel of the parish church of St Mary;s Sandwich" The will which covers five sheets mentions the other children of Solomon and Mary thus" I give unto my nephew Charles Hougham son of my brother Henry Hougham deceased ?1000 To my brother ijn Law Thomas Harvey and to my sister Ann his wife" etc.
The will shows the course by which Barton Court was inherited by Charles, the son of Henry

His memorial is a monument in St Marys Church Sandwich and reads" In memory of Solomon Hougham mayor of this town 1639 who dyed 27 Nov 1658 age 59. and of Mary his wife buried 19 January 1641 also of Richard Hougham his eldest son buried 26 Apr 1662 and lastly of Solomon Hougham Esq 2nd son, merchant of London and High Sherriff of Kent 1696 who died a bachelor 16 March 1697 in his 73 rd year of his age" " Both the Indies both the poles nay both the worlds knew his traffic, justice and his country too. Giving all on earth the heavenly pearl obtained he lived with profit and he died with gain".

Died of the plague at Sandwich. As no victim of the plague was allowed to be buried in a church the law was hedged a little by placing him in a doorway in St Marys Church. After bricking up the inside of the doorway into the church his remains followed and then finally the outside of the doorway was bricked up leaving him buried neither inside or outside the church. Evidence remains today as does a brass plate inside the church

The part of the latter descended to Edward de St. Ledger, on whose death, his son Thomas de St. Ledger succeeded to it, who with Benedicta de Shelving possessed this estate in the 20th year of that reign. From St. Ledger the manor of Woodneshorough afterwards passed by sale into the name of White, one of whom, Robert White, died possessed of it in the 12th year of king Henry VIII. and from Shelving, the estate of Shelving was afterwards alienated to Dynely, or Dingley, as the name was variously called and spelt; and in king Henry VIII's reign Henry Dynely was in possession of it; at which time it paid ward to Dover castle. After which their respective heirs joined in the sale of both to Knight; from which time I find no further mention of the manor of Woodnesborough, but of the manor of Shelving only, which in the beginning of king Charles I.'s reign was the property of Edward Knight, gent. who died in 1632, leaving two daughters his coheirs, who seem to have divided this estate between them; that part, with the manor and court-lodge, still retaining the name of Shelving; the other, from its situation, taking the name of Churchgate sarm. This latter estate afterwards came at length into the possession of Christopher Ernest Kien, esq. lieut. colonel of the horse guards, who died possessed of it in 1744; upon which it descended to George Cousemaker, esq. whose widow Mary marrying Sir Thomas Pym Hales, bart. he became possessed of it, and died in 1773; upon which his widow, dame Mary Hales, above-mentioned, is now again possessed of it for her life; after which it will descend to her son by her first husband, lieut. colonel George Cousemaker.
The manor of Shelving was very soon afterwards sold to Solomon Hougham, gent. of Sandwich, who died possessed of it in 1658. He was a younger son of Richard Hougham, of Weddington, in Ash, by Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Sanders, gent. of Norborne; from whose youngest son Henry, descended the Houghams, of St. Martin's, in Canterbury, which branch of the Houghams bear for their arms, Or, five chevronels, sable. Solomon Hougham above-mentioned, was succeeded in it by his eldest son Richard Hougham, gent. of the same place, who died possessed of it in 1662; not long after which, it appears to have passed into the possession of John Grove, gent. of Tunstall, in right of Mildred his wife, who died in 1677. (fn. 1) After which it descended to his grandson Richard Grove, esq. formerly of Cambridge, but afterwards of the Temple, London, who dying unmarried a few years ago, and having no near relations, devised it, with the greatest part of his estates, to Mr. William Jemmett, gent. of Ashford, and William Marshall, the latter of whom, on a division of these estates, is now become the sole possessor of it. A court baron is held for this manor.

VWW Backstage: Jazzmin Rhysm
by Branded-Curse, Feb 4, 2017, 6:47:04 AM
Literature / Prose / Fiction / General Fiction / Introductions & Chapters
1. Jazzmin Rhysm is of Jamaican descent, but was born in the United States and grew up in New Orleans, Llouisiana. Her real name is Jasmin Keira Danvers ( née Huffam ).

2. She has been with VWW since its inception in late 1999/early 2000 and wrestled on its first event on January 16, 2000.

3. Jazzmin has a sister-in-law, who is also a wrestler and occasionally wrestles for VWW and PFA under the ringname "Double D" Darcy Danvers. Since her real name is Carol Danielle Danvers, she sometimes also wrestles as "Marvelous" Carol Danvers. Only on occasion though, for obvious reasons.

4. Jazzmin Rhysm has held VWW's International Title six times, more than anyone else.

5. Having a dancing background, she was considered a showact for most of her career, usually being in the opening contests. Her dance-offs with the likes of Aisha and "Disco Queen" Harley D. are legendary. Still, even though being a show saver, it took Jazzmin 14 years to be considered for the main event and 15 years to break the glas ceiling.

6. Jazzmin had a career-long feud with now retired Canadian wrestler Jill Bentley, with whom she had the best and most intense matches of her career. In fact, it were her later matches with Bentley, who convinced Robert Schütze to put her in the main event. Behind the scenes Bentley was a mentor to Rhysm.

7. Even though she returned to in-ring competition in August 2016, Jazzmin seems to have lost some of her aura as of late. She seemingly never fully recovered from the massive blow that was her inopportune injury that cut short her World Title run in 2015.

8. Jazzmin has been dubbed "the Iron Woman of VWW" by her peers, because she has the best stamina in the locker room. She's known for going the extra mile and being able to wrestle long matches seemingly without even breaking a sweat. She had a 45 minute epic with Malice Malenko at Clash of the Vixxen IV in 2014, Jazzmin's first Clash of the Vixxen main event ever. After the match Malice dragged herself into the shower and was visibly baffled when Rhysm skipped past her on the way there. This resulted an Malice's famous locker room quote: "You do realize we were in the same match, right?".

A Fred Hougham born 1887 is listed as a carpenter in the RAF in 1915

Since my last email I have found written information of my mother's that Frederick Hougham was a corporal based at St Omer. St Omer was at the centre of RFC operations in France during the Great War. The fact that he was a corporal perhaps maybe explained by the fact that the RFC did not become RAF until 1918, and army ranks were used for personnel, unless they had brand new roles, like pilots.

Commemorative Information
Memorial: BASRA MEMORIAL, Iraq
Grave Reference/
Panel Number: Panel 12

Location: The Basra Memorial was originally sited within Basra War Cemetery but in 1997 the Memorial was moved by presidential decree. The move, carried out by the authorities in Iraq, involved a considerable amount of manpower, transport costs and sheer engineering on their part, and the Memorial has been re-erected in its entirety. The Basra Memorial is now located 32 kilometres along the road to Nasiriyah, in the middle of what was a major battleground during the Gulf War. The Memorial consists of a roofed colonnade of white Indian stone, 80 metres long, with an obelisk 16 metres high as the central feature. The names are engraved on slate panels fixed to the wall behind the columns. More than 40,000 British, Indian and West African dead who died in the operations in Mesopotamia from the Autumn of 1914 to the end of August 1921, are commemorated on the Memorial.
