6552 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)
6553 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.

6564 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.

6574 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.

6575 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.

He entered the Army in 1876; became Captain, ISC, in 1887; served with the First and Second Miranzai Expeditions (Despatches; Medal and clasp). He again saw active service in Waziristan, 1894—95, and was present at the action of Wano. He was mentioned in Despatches; received a clasp, and was created a Companion of the Distinguished Service Order [London Gazette, 27 August 1895]: "Herbert Wharry, Captain, Indian Staff Corps.

6581 When I heard of Sarah-, daughter of-Keziah(Hougham) Hawkes ,1 was sure- -that- I had found my Grandfather's sister Keziah but after much further correspondence and research,found it was my Grandfather's cousin,same name of Keziah, born same village and same year,but about five months difference in ages.Nevertheless-I had found a staunch friend.Our correspondence began about 1925-6,but the extracts are few for the following reason.on

1934.Dec.l0."We never knew the Hougham's,only Uncle Jack,-and the Ovendens.There is only Tom Ovenden living now Annie died a year ago,and Polly has been gone several years.Tom lives at St Nicholas with his son_Tom.— My brother in law Mr Foade died 27 June 1932,on my birthday,he left my sister Annie well provided for."

Sarah's son Jack Dove took up the correspondence,and often sent me extracts from books in the Canterbury library, so the extracts will be from the letters of Jack Dove, son of Sarah and Grandson of Keziah (Hougham)Hawkes.Grandson of Keziah(Hougham) Hawks.

1941 Nov 18 " We do not get much chance to concentrate or write, we have to blackout at 4 P.M. we are having some very noisy nights now,old Jerry has just been over and unloaded some of his bombs ,the explosions shook the house terrible , but they were a long way off. We had, them three nights running.We will be glad when this war Is over.

1943 June 13.Every week we have a drive for something-this week it is gathering scrap iron,and the need is so great that we are told to even pull down the iron railings around the graves.It seems a shame to destroy our church yards that way,but after all they are not doing any good rusting away,they are not lovely,and it seems too bad to fence our dead in,we know that no fence in the world will retain their soul and their poor bodies have wasted away years ago".

1944 Oct 8."My brother has had the roof of his house blown off and all their windows blown out from a flying bomb,but fortunately none of the family were hurt."

1945."Aunty Foade passed to her long rest Sunday May 5th age 83 and was laid to rest May 9th by the side of Granny and Granty Keyes in the Stourmouth Churchyard.In that corner there is now nine of our family all
close together.

NOTE BY M.H.Pratt.-Jack and his Mother kept up a steady correspondence from 1925 and right on through the war, but there was nothing of genealogical value.The letters described the war,and told where the bombs fell which churches or villages suffered from bombs,and especially described old Canterbury and it's Cathedral. The various organizations and ohurch duties that Jack is engaged in. In 1937 I spent a week in their home and enjoyed their company very much,and they are prominent in the Parish Church work,and they showed me through the church and explained it's ancient parts,also the grave-yard-but at that time I did not know that my second grt grd father and his wife were buried there,or that he had 13 children baptised there. The reason that Sarah or Jack could not give me much information was that Keziah Hougham's father had died young and the wife had married again,so the children were raised by the Measday side of the family,and did not know their Hougham relatives.They"knew their Uncle Jack " he was the father of Harriet (Hougham) Elvery, and was their Mother Kesiah's brother,and the Ovendens were the children of their Mother's sister Mary. Added to that scanty knowledge it was not the custom for people in those villages to visit far from home, a few miles was a. long way to them,so family connections were not kept up*

187. Some Merchants of Nevis to their Correspondent in London. Wee lay before you the prosseedings of our Councill and Assembly, that you may plainly see what sinister ways and means they take to resetle the Island again, etc. All their publique meetings has cheifly tended to make acts for puting a stop to the due currancy of the Law, without any exceptions of poor or rich, that they may have time to recrute their estates, without any regard to us here, that were fellow sufferers with them. Wee have laboured under great dificulties in oposition to their passing their Act. H.E. has a great regard for the merchants' interest boath at home and here; he will not pass any of their Acts, notwithstanding he intends to send them home without the broad seale. After they made their first Act, which the Generall would not pass, Mr. Fowler went up to Antegua with a petition to the Generall; H.E. very readily granted a Commission for houlding the Courts, notwithstanding the Councill and Assembly put a stop to [that] proseeding, and sent Mr. Bevon, Mr. Goar, Sp., and James Symonds with an Address to the Generall [for] stoping the law. This put a demur till the Generall came down [to] St. Christophers, and then wee proferd another petition, which went down by Dr. Semple; the Generall on sight of the petition promised to come up himselfe and compose matters between planters and merchants, which in two days he did. At his coming up, the Councill and Assembly mett, the Generall entered some Minnuts in the Councill Book with his own hand, that a bill should be prepared by a Commity of two of the Councill and four of the Assembly, and the [? same] number of merchants. The bill was to oblige planters to ajust with and give bond for what was justly due those that were not able to make prompt payment, a time should be allowed them, and those that were able and not willing, [the] Law should proseed against them, and that all debits contracted since our misfortune shou'd be payd. The Generall had a conference of the Councill and Assembly and merchants in the Councill Chamber, and made the above proposals, which the Councill and Speaker agreed to, but as soon as the Generall was gone, they prepared this bill. We heard Coll. Abbott and Thomas Bridgwatter and Mr. Horn was goeing down with the bill to gett the broad seale to itt; Mr. Huffam, Mr. Washington, and Dr. Semple went downe before, and acquainted the Generall with their bill and left some proposals with him, which he aproved of, and when Col. Abbot shoud the bill, the Generall altogither refused to pass any such bill, and dd. to Coll. Abbot the proposalls left with him, and signed the same, and told him he would pass no other Act, but what was agreeable to the proposalls. The publication [? is] up for holding the Courts, but it's so late in the year the Generall thinks itt conveniant to pass it over till the Spring, and then intends the Courts shall be open. In the [? meantime the] planters are using all their interest both here and in England to gett an Act past [? for put]ting a stop to the Law for some time, till they can think of some more effectuall means either to make former debts altogether voyd, or downright to defraud their creditors by private conveyances of their estates to their relations, or one to another, and they to make itt over to their children again; and all this is acted through a pretence of poverty; ther is some of them will not stand to say they are in a better condition then, before the misfortune. Wee hope you will use your uttmost endeavours that the Law may have its due currancy, and that the Courts may be open in the Spring, that we may be able to oblige them to ajust accompts, etc. Signed, Samuel Browne, Chas.
