      Note by MHP

      The regs of St Alphage say William Hougham married Elizabeth Thurstone but this will and the marriage license show it was Michael. Later she married John Blaxland widower of Monkton and the registers and graveyards of Goodnestone show many Houghams and Blaxlands buried there.
