John, the eldest son, died in 1498 leaving a will which is reproduced below:

Will of JOHN FILMER, of Otterden

Dated 14/1/1497 Proved 4/7/1498

"In the name of God Amen the year of our Lord 1498 the 14th of the month of January I, JOHN FILMER of the parish of Ottreden being of sound mind and good memory make my will in this manner. First I bequeath my soul to Almighty God, the Blessed Mary the Virgin and All Saints, my body to be buried in the Churchyard of St. Laurence in the parish afresaid. Item I give and bequeath to the high altar there 12d. Item I bequeath to the Church of Bourseld (Bordefield) 3s.4d. to repair the chalice. Item I bequeath on the days of my burial and trental eleven masses to be celebrated and to each priest 6d. Item I bequeath to the light of the Blessed Mary the Virgin there nine sheep. Item I bequeath to JAMES FELMER one sheep. Item I bequeath to my three sisters three sheep. Item I bequeath to JOAN my sister one chest. I bequeath to THOMAS FELMER my brother 6s.8d. which same THOMAS I make and ordain my executor. The residue truly of all my goods, my debts and legacies being paid I give and bequeath to THOMAS FELMER my brother. These being witnesses: Sir WALTER BACCHELERE, his curate, BENEDICT FILMER and many others.

Item I bequeath to my two godchildren 8d. Item to JOAN SILVER 6s.8d. [presumably FILMER]".

Proved 4 July 1498. Proved before the Official of the Dean of the Arches, Canterbury 4 July, 1498 by THOMAS FILMER executor.

Notes. (1). The gift of 3s.4d. for mending the chalice shows that Bordefield Church was then in use. The title "Sir" given to the curate was then the equivalent of "Reverend". "Trental" means 'the following 30 days'.
(2). There is a copy of the will amongst the East Sutton papers, but it differs from the Canterbury record in certain particulars. Probably both are copies of the original.
(3). There are also two slightly different versions of the will: in the other copy (see below) in addition to the items mentioned above are - 'to ALICE BROCK 13s 4d, to ALICE HEYWARD 6d and YZOTE PLUMER 6d'.

"Body to be buried in churchyard of St. Lawrence, Otterden.
To the high altar there, 12d.
To the church of Boresfield to repair a chalice, 3s. 4d.
For 11 masses at months mind and at burial, to each priest, 6d.

John must have been at least eighty-five when he died and had three brothers and three sisters then still living. This is interesting in that the exceptional age to which most members of the family lived during the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries seems to infer that the living conditions for them at least could not have been too difficult despite the somewhat turbulent political and economic circumstances of the period.

It is also clear from John's will that the church at Bordefield was still then in use. The nunnery of Davington, it will be recalled, owned the advowsen of Bordefield as well as two parts of the manor and the advowsen of Monkton. The church at Bordefield had never been worth much to the nunnery from the early fourteenth century and there had been a steady decline.

This decline eventually resulted in both Monkton and Bordefield parishes being merged in 1522 with Otryngden by John, the Archbishop of Canterbury with the consent of Joan, the Prioress of Davington.

FILMER, ROBERT. Adm. Pens. (age 17) at CAIUS, Nov.4, 1586. S. of Robert, Esq. B. at East Sutton, Kent. School, Sutton. Adm. At Gray’s Inn, July 3, 1598, from Staple Inn. Brother of Edward (1584). (Venn, I. 128)

Robert, baptised at East Sutton in 1569, was admitted to Grays Inn in 1598 being then described as late of Staple Inn, gentleman. It appears that he later resided, when in Kent, at Wichling manor by leave of his brother, Edward, who had inherited the manor from his father. There is no evidence that he actually owned it. In 1600 he married Jane White (While), a widow, at St. Gregory's in London. She appears to have had children by her former husband, Thomas White and there is an interesting case brought by Robert as plaintiff before the Star Chamber concerning one of her daughters. In the proceedings Robert is stated to be 'late of Edmonton, gentleman, being married to Jane, late wife of Thomas White of London. gentleman'. The proceedings were brought against William Hickman, a miller, Ambrose Needham, Thomas Sherive (Shreeve) and Thomas Kingston, the minister in the Tower of London, alleging that they conspired together to marry Jane's daughter, Helen, to William Hickman at the Tower. (Bundle 142 James I).

6512 Verna Lorraine Hilde, 89, Bismarck, ND, formerly of Fargo, completed her earthly journey on March 15, 2010. Cremation has taken place through Bismarck Funeral Home, and her cremains will be interred in the family plot at the Waldheim Lutheran Church Cemetery near Kathryn, ND. As she requested, there will be no memorial service.
The third child of Selmer and Betsy (Baarstad) Gilbertson, Verna was born on January 16, 1921, at Eastedge, North Dakota.
After graduating from Enderlin High School in 1938, Verna graduated from American Business College in Minneapolis. She met and married Nicholas Bernard Barr in Minneapolis, and she worked a number of years in the Minneapolis area before moving to Fargo, ND. She was employed as a medical stenographer at TNI – St. Lukes/Merit Care for 17 years, retiring in 1981. Verna moved to Bismarck in 2001 and to the Baptist Home in April 2009.
Verna is survived by nieces Rachel (Erv) Monson, Bismarck, ND, Nancy Gilbertson (Tom Prall), Prairie City, IA, and Glory (Kevin) Hougham, Dubuque, IA; grand-nieces Kris (Matthew) Jobe, Rochester, MN, and Jordan Hougham, Washington, DC; great-grand niece Laney Jobe, Rochester, MN; daughter-in-law Jane Lauf Barr, St. Petersburg Beach, FL; and a special niece-in-law Vicki (Linc) Jepson and her family, Georges Mill, NH.
She was preceded in death by her parents, son Gary, sister Margaret, and brothers James and Gerald.
Her only child, Gary Barr, died in 1998 from colon cancer at the age of 52. In spite of this tragic loss, she continued to be loving, thoughtful, and helpful. In big letters inside her address book she wrote: “Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle.” Her memory would be blessed by your reaching out to someone who could benefit from a random act of kindness.

6525 Was adopted by his Uncle Richard de Brion and inhetited the Barony of Okehampton of his Half Brother Ralph Avenell

When King William I (the Conqueror) had conquered England, he gave to those men who came over with him great estates and among them was Baldwin de Brioniis (so named from a place in Normandy) who was given many estates and the Barony of Okehampton. Baldwin was the second son of Gilbert de Crispin, Count of Brioniis, son of Godfrey, Count de Ewe, natural son of Richard, the first of that name, Duke of Normandy. Richard was the greatgrandfather of William the Conqueror. Baldwin married Albreda, niece of the Conqueror. Because he was so close in kin to the Conqueror he was given, in addition to the Barony of Okehampton, the Castle of Exeter, and the Custody of the whole county of Devon. They had issue: Richard, Adela and Emma. Adela was married to "a Kentish Knight", Emma married first, William Avenel, by whom she had issue Ralph, and second to William de Abrincis, by whom she had Robert. Robert de Abrincis was dearly loved by Richard de Brioniis, who treated him as his heir but Robert married a daughter of Godwin Dole and departed "out of England" beyond the seas. They had a daughter named Matilda who was married to the Lord of Aincourt. Baldwin was succeeded by his son Richard, a stout soldier in his young years but very devout in his later years and left no heirs. His whole estates and honors went to his sister Adela (or Adelicia). Ralph Avenel (son of her sister Emma) was heir to these estates but he refused to marry the daughter of of Reginald, Earl of Cornwall, and instead he married a daughter of Richard de Redvers, Earl of Devonshire. Reginald was so infuriated he sent for Robert de Abrincis' daughter Matilda (from beyond the seas). King Henry II , on the advice of Reginald, Earl of Cornwall, gave her to Robert, natural son to King Henry I and brother of Reginald. They had daughters Hawise and Matilda, who became the heirs of d'brioniis estates, (other sources say they were halfsisters) who married Reginald de Courtenay and his son (or brother?) William de Courtenay. Reginald de Courtenay and Hawise were benefactors of the Abbey of Ford and were buried there. This Robert husband of Matilda, who was one of at least 13 natural sons of King Henry I, was the son of Edith, sister to Ive, son of Forme, son of Segewold, who were great barons of the north. She named him Robert FitzEde and he became Earl Marshal of England and,in right of his wife, Baron of Okehampton from whom Hawise inherited the estates.Robert FitzEde died in 1172 and Matilda died in 1173 he was buried in Osney Abbey.
SOURCE NOTES for Hawise follow:
She was the eldest daughter (or granddaughter? she seems to be a daughter of Robert FitzEde and another source The Complete Peerage says she was the daughter of William Curcy dead by 1162 and his wife Maud d'Avranches and a granddaughter of Robert d'Avranches ) of Robert d'Abrincis(or Avranches), Baron of Oakhampton.

Robert d' Avranches , who held the fief of Macey, south of Avranches (Loyd, 'Origins', pp. 11-12); who married, firstly, a daughter of Gelduin de Dol, and, secondly, Maud de Monville, daughter of William d'Arques and Beatrix Malet, daughter of William Malet and Hesilia Crispin. By either he was the father of Denise d'Avranches, who married Hasculphe de Subligny, from Subligny, in canton Haye-Pesnel, held by Hugh d'Avranches as 'tenant-in-chief' (Keats-Rohan; the Prosopography, p. 11). 
d'Averanches, Robert Viscount of Devonshire, heriditary Sheriff of Devonshsire, Castalan of Exeter (I18)
6526 was born with flu five days after his sister Bertha had died of it. He was undersized and weight from birth and for a long time not expected to live. But he did and he remained small and thin and they said he looked like a mosquito hence he became known as "skeeter"

Although he started in the hayfields at age 8, Skeeter's diminutive size may have contributed to his being allowed to complete 8 years of school before being kept busy doing farm work for his dad or brother Lewis. His exceptional mechanical aptitude led him into automobile repair and in turn to moving northwood towards better pay. He was working in an auto repair shop just north of Minneapolis in December 1941 and by April 1942 he was in the Army Air Corp. He spent the rest of WW2 in the southwest pacific assembling fighter planes that were shipped there in pieces

After the war, Skeeter returned to north of Minneapolis, built his own home in a grove on a piece of land with a small lake or large pond. His civilian life was spent as a welder in a factory, for those things and places automated welders cant do.

The price of Skeeters life work was damaged lungs. His emphasema has for a number of years required the almost constant companionship of an oxygen bottle which has slowed his activities but neither his sense of humour or good nature.

6537 We are placing this woman here as George's 2nd wife based on data from the 1870 US/FL census. That census shows George as head of the family, age 47, with Mary R (Davis) listed as "keeping house." Also, in addition to George's children by the 1st wife, there is a new entry for John W. Davis, age 4, so born in 1876. Later , in the 1920 census, we see a Mary Davis listed as a widow, age 70 (some discrepancy here, but maybe an error), and living in Madison County in the household of a daughter, who was born in 1877. Mary R.

Arrived in US 7 June 1836 aboard the Union Is this David D the recipient of this letter the reference to ? Franklin County: A Brother to David D. Hougham, August 4, 1863 SUMMARY: This letter to Hougham from a family member describes Union troop movement from Philadelphia to Reading, Pennsylvania. Pottsville Schuylkill Co. August 4 1863 Dear Brother I reseived your letter yesterday about 10 minutes after reaching here. We left Phil. friday eve at 7 oclock and marched to Norristown 16 miles stoped 2 hours and fed and started again and went as far as [unclear: Trappe] and fed again there and then left and made another halt at Pottstown got there at 9 Sat eve and stayed till Sunday eve at 10. When we left for Reading where we arrived at 7 in movng here we took the cars for Pottsville the weather during the march was the hottest of the season. We left Franklin Palmer and one other fellow on the road sick every where along the road and here we had every thing we could eat. this morning a lot of ladies brought up enough for us all to have breakfast. we had a good trip, but it was an awful hard one. the trip from washington to Phil. was rather long. we ran an extra train and had to wait for orders at every station so as to miss other trains. We are up in the coal mine region and we expect to have business there is 16000 miners to oppose the draft, 800 were drilling 4 miles from here yesterday having left the mines for what purpose we dont expect to stay here long but are going 5 or 6 miles up into the mines or mountains for it is all mountains here there is a mine about 100 [unclear: rods] from here have not had time to go to it yet they are raising a Brigade and we shall probably go to the front when we go from here I did not receive the letters you spoke of only Sarahs and that I answered just before I left Phil. here and got here before I did the trip from w to P was about the same as when we went down only we got quite hungry and stoped at a station where there was 5 gal. cans filled with milk and I [unclear: just took] one of them and it happened to be filled with cream and we had a big feast and have got the can yet and keep it to put water in it is quite handy I dont know as there is any thing more at present all the boys are well and with us except [unclear: Orb] we left him in Phil Gray and [unclear: jap ] was left but came all the way by RR and got here. [illeg.] we [unclear: shall] leave this Co. probably so write to Pottsville
On a board found in the Landmark Tavern building and now on display to the left of the modern tap room: “This window cased by David Douglas Hougham on this 17th day of October 1851. Four carpenters now work on this house. Written by D.D. Hougham. Chartered by Coolidge Brothers & Company, Bouckville. Isaac Forward and his son, Hougham and Henderson – joiners. A great day – not a cloud to be seen. A frosty morning – just the same through the day.” When construction reached the cupola level, Mr. Coolidge used a six-sided design, the entire cupola being about 12 feet wide. Legend states that each side was dedicated to one of the six wives that he married during his lifetime. His fifth wife was alive during the initial construction of the building but died before the structure reached the height of the cupola. Coolidge married for a sixth time in 1851 (Mary Coburn Smith) and this may have prompted the six-sided design. You can see the entire area around Bouckville from each of the diamond-shaped cupola windows. The result of four years of labor was a building unlike any other in the U.S. It has been featured in numerous articles and books and is also listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Each side of the front of the building is 24 feet wide, for a total of 96 feet of road frontage. The frontage faced the Cherry Valley Turnpike, the Chenango Canal and after 1850, the Rome to Hamilton Plank Road, which ran alongside the canal. The stores on the ends of the building were rectangular in shape, while the two stores in the middle were more pie-shaped. It became the first mini-mall of its day with a different type of store eventually occupying each section. Each store entrance can be visibly seen today. The Post Office for Bouckville was housed in the Cobblestone Store for many years and the first telephone exchange for the community was also headquartered there.

6547 West Cowes Isle of Wight

His maternal grandfather was also a brewer, living in Cowes, in the Isle of Wight. A quaint paper, framed behind glass, was brought out for my inspection. It reads:

"These are to Will and Require you forthwith to swear and admit the bearer hereof, Thomas Blake, of West Cowes, Isle of Wight, into the place of Purveyor of Ale and Beer in Ordinary to her Majesty. He is to have and enjoy all the Rights, Profits and Privileges and Advantages to the said place belonging during my will and pleasure, and for so doing shall be your warrant. Dated this 10th day of March, 1848, in the 11th year of Her Majesty's reign".

The signature is indecipherable. Brewing in those days, Mr. Huffam told me, was carried out with malt and hops only. Sugar was not permitted. If a brewer was detected using sugar he was heavily fined. The customs officials, excise men in those days, had keys to the breweries and could walk in any time of the day or night.

6548 Westley Hougham, the brother of John Hougham, was born March 3, 1820, in Highland County, Ohio. He was always a moral boy, and never cut up capers or shines. He came to Funk’s Grove in November, 1831. He had no particular adventure on the way, except difficulties with the mud, which delayed the family for some time, as they were obliged to make a great many bridges. On his arrival he immediately commenced farming and shaking with the fever and ague. Sometimes he farmed for his mother and sometimes for himself. When he became a “chunk of a boy” he ran wolves and deer and turkeys, and sometimes was successful in catching them and sometimes they won the race. When t he sudden change in the weather in December, 1836, came, he was chasing turkeys about four miles from home, but made good time back, as may be supposed. He was obliged to swim Sugar Creek.
He married, September 5, 1845, Miss Ellen Smith, and by this marriage has had four children, of whom three are living. His wife died in 1854. He married, February 18, 1857, Margaret Ross, and by this marriage has had four children, of whom three are living. Two of Mr. Hougham’s children are married.

James Thomas Hougham, who lives within half a mile of his father’s house.
Mrs. America Ann Boler lives within a mile of her father’s house.

Mr. Hougham lacks half an inch of being six feet in height, when measured in his stocking feet. That was his measurement at Springfield, when he went to see if he would do for a soldier. He weighs three or four hundred pounds, he does not know precisely which. He is stout and pretty active.
