  • Name William HALKE 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born
    • There was an inquisition post mortem for William's father Sampson Halke; this gave William's age as 24, suggesting he was born in 1577 or 1578. If this was accurate clearly the baptism could not be his.
    Baptised 9 Oct 1575  St. Mary’s Church, Brabourne, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • From PR entry (thanks to Tim Treml for obtaining image of this)
      "Willm Hauke the sonne of Sampson Hauke the ixth daye of October"

      This does not quite agree with the age in his father's Inquisition Post Mortem, but I've read that the ages in these documents could be a bit approximate.
    Gender Male 
    Property 1609 or 1610  Brabourne, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    Depositions concerning three pieces of land 
    • There seems to have been some disagreement about whether three pieces of land, Lampland, about an acre and a half, Churchland, about six and a half acres and an acre and a half of meadow called either Landsmeed or Heddenborough 'belonged' to the Church or was land William Halke or one Sampson Barrow had the right to. Ultimately it must have been part of the Duchy of Lancaster, and so a series of questions were put by representatives of both the Attorney General of the Duchy and of William Halke to a number of local people.

      These deponents included Richard Halke of Hastingleigh.

      (Please note: while the above is a very brief summary of what I think the case is about, I am still in the process of transcribing and getting to understand the depositions so it may be slightly wrong)

      The depositions can be seen at the National Archives, ref. DL 4/55/24. I am seeking permission to put my transcription of them on this website. 
    Executor / Trustee From 1625 
    For the will of his cousin Richard Halke 
    • Quite a bit of work seems to have been required in the execution of Richard's will. It seems to have led to a few disputes. With most of the documentation in Latin I haven't yet discovered what they were all about.

    Father Sampson HALKE,   b. Abt 1539,   bur. 1 Mar 1601/02, St. Mary’s Church, Brabourne, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location  (Age ~ 63 years) 
    Mother Mistress Jane MUSCHAMP,   c. 3 Aug 1548, All Saints’ Church, Carshalton, Surrey, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location,   d. Jun 1618  (Age ~ 69 years) 
    Married Bef 1566 
    • Jane was described as 'Jane now wief of Sampson Hawke' when her aunt Mary Muschamp wrote her will, on 16 Oct 1566.
      That Jane was a Muschamp was suggested by Sampson's will describing a sister of Jane's as Elizabeth Muschamp, wife of John Grey - the only reason for giving another surname for Elizabeth seemed to be to show the link to Jane. Hence I am confident that the reference in the will of Mary Muschamp is to the right Jane and Sampson Hawke.

    Family Elizabeth LYSTER,   c. 24 Mar 1582/83, St. Peter and St. Paul’s Church, Appledore, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location,   d. Aft 15 Jul 1642  (Age ~ 59 years) 
    Married 9 Oct 1599  St. Mary’s Church, Brabourne, Kent, England See the place on a map and other information about it - if available (many more will be in time); also all individuals with events at this location 
    • From the Parish Register (m/f images, viewed at the CCA, July 2015)
      "Willm Hawcke and elyzebethe Lister were maried the 9 of october ao 1599"
      These show that the bride's name for 2 consecutive entries is given as Elizabeth Lyster. 
      Were there really 2 marriages running for an Elizabeth Lyster? I was at first suspicious that an error had been made, but it would seem there were.
      Lyster was not a Brabourne name, but the marriage licence for the previous entry (for a marriage to a John Carpenter) shows that Elizabeth was a widow from Appledore.
      I speculated that maybe the 2nd Elizabeth was a relation who met through the first marriage occuring. Now I have seen the will of a William Lyster of Appledore who died in 1599. He left a daughter and a widow Elizabeth; it seems these were the two Elizabeths who married in Brabourne. A note has been added alongside the probate statement for the will, dated 27 Nov 1600, which mentions William Halk, confirming a link between a William Halk and the Lysters in the will.
      Further evidence is that Elizabeth Lyster of Appledore had a sister Agnes, who fits as the one who married Boys Ower, with references to the Halkes in their wills.
