  • Name Richard HALKE 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born Abt 1562 
    • I estimated Richard was born about 1574 based on my estimate of the date of his marriage to Alice Pemble. However, I suspect he was the Richard Halke of Hastingleigh who gave evidence in dispute over some Duchy of Lancaster land in 1609-10 when he was said to be aged about 48.

    • 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.

    Father John HALKE,   b. Abt 1520,   d. 28 Mar 1604  (Age ~ 84 years) 
    Mother Amy,   b. Abt 1526,   d. 16 Feb 1596/97  (Age ~ 71 years) 
    Married
    • A John was clearly father of Sarah and Amy (from their baptisms).
      Relationship between Thomas, Joane, William and Richard (as siblings) from wills.
      That the father of the 4 siblings was also a John is from Joane's father being named in marriage register when she married (from Hastingleigh website, data transcribed from ATs) and a Court of Chancery case (1593 or 5, C 2/Eliz/D5/6, I've phototed but not yet had time to read) in which the defendants were 'John Haulke of Hastingleigh, Kent, yeoman and his son Richard Haulke' seems likely to refer to this John and his son and so agrees with the marriage entry for Joane, and more conclusively Richard refers to his father John in his will.

      The age of Amy suggested on the brass in Hastingleigh Church means it was probably a different John who was the father of Sarah and Amy. I do not know which family the John who died in 1576 belonged to.

    Family Alice RAYNES,   bur. 5 May 1647, St. Mary and St. Eanswythe’s Church, Folkestone, 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 
    Married Abt 1599 
    • In Bill of Chancery case dated 1 Feb 1609 Richard Halke (the orator) refers to his marriage as being about ten years before, and to Alice, the daughter of Thomas Raynes. (C 2/JasI/H24/42)

      Hastingleigh website shows Alice as a PEMBLE, I don't know where this is from, but it seems to be incorrect.

      When he died Richard's wife was Alice, but he may have been married more than once and she need not have been mother of all (or any) of his children
