    • He is recorded on the Knights Visitation of Kent which was taken 1619-1621 by John Philipot Roughe Dragon Marshall and Deputy to Wiilliam Camden Clarenceaux. It was made to establish the ancestry and pedigree of those at that time entitled to bear the arms tricked. The official copy is in the college of Arms and bears the press mark c16.In it the pedigree for Hougham has added to the coat of Arms a quartering which was sometime quartered afterwards by the decendants
      He is given as father of Solomon
      He is recorded as son of Robert de Hougham.

      Heralds College of Arms gives descent from Robert of Robert

      Irelands History of Kent records a John Hougham as his father, given the above, this is almost certainly incorrect

      A forgotten past gives John and Christian as parents of William without any proof..

      MHP - I have on file William Hochem of Elmstone mentioned in Will of John ST Nicholas, also I have Elizabeth Hucham or Hugyham - widow- of St Marys Canterbury bur 1473 Seeing that Elizabeth was of Sandwich and St Marys is at Sandwich (and the approximation of b abt 1496 supplied by UTAH never did fit) I believe the foregoing references apply here also John St Nicholas was a friend probably a relative and his figure appears in stained glass window at Ashe next to Solomon son of William and Elizabeth Hougham, AS to different spelling of surname it has been spelled 19 ways. It was spelled two ways in will of Eluzabeth shown above

      Weddington lies not far from Chilton, and was formerly accounted a manor. The family of Hougham were in early times owners of it, who were descended originally from the Houghams, of Hougham, by Dover, who, in allusion to the arms of their superior lords the Averenches, or Albrincis, lords of the barony of Folkestone, of whom they held their lands, bore for their arms, Argent, five chevronels, sable. And from these Houghams, of Weddington, these now of St. Martin's, near Canterbury, branched off, before king Henry VII.'s reign, as appears by their wills in the Prerogative office, Canterbury. In this family of Hougham, Weddington continued down to William Hougham, who resided here in the begining of king Henry VIII.'s reign, whose descendant Richard Hougham, gent. son of Michael, marrying Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Sanders, gent. of Norborne, his descendants, in memory of it, assumed the arms of Sanders, viz. Or, on a chevron, between three elepbants heads, gules, as many mullets, argent; whilst those of St. Martin's, near Canterbury, retained their original bearing of Hougham. Their son Michael Hougham resided at Weddington, and dying about the latter end of king Charles I's reign, was buried with his ancestors in this church. Soon after which this family became extinct here, and the estate alienated from them, which, after some intermediate owners, passed into the name of Garret, of the Isle of Thanet, in which it remains at this time, John Garret, esq. being the present possessor of it.
