Jump to: navigation, search

Henry Bourchier, 5th Baron Bourchier, 1st Viscount Bourchier, 1st Earl of Essex (c. 1404/c. 1406 – 4 April 1483), was the eldest son of William Bourchier and Anne Plantagenet. His mother was a granddaughter of Edward III and, through her mother, great-great-granddaughter of Edward I. He was thus a great-grandson of Edward III.

He inherited the title of Lord (or Baron) Bourchier from his cousin Elizabeth on her death in 1433, became 1st Viscount Bourchier in 1446, a Knight of the Garter in 1452, and was finally created Earl of Essex in 1461.

He was Lord High Treasurer from 29 May 1455 – 5 October 1456, 28 July 1460 – 14 April 1462, and 22 April 1471 – 4 April 1483. He also became Justice in Eyre south of the Trent in 1461, holding that title till his death.

Origin of Names – Example

Filed under: Uncategorized — weavercat @ 9:13 pm

Where do names originate from?

A quick example off the ‘top of my head’ —


Franklin = has a Middle English origin, meaning “Free landowner”.

Delano = de la Noye:[is of Old French origin][meanings: Of the night|Alder grove.]

* Respelling of French De la Noye, habitational name, with the preposition de, for someone from any of various places called La Noue or La Noë.

Roosevelt = [Dutch origin] meaning, from the ‘rose field’ [or field of roses]:

* An Anglicized version of the Dutch surname VAN ROSEVELT, meaning “of the rose field.”

From reading this you can see that Franklin D. Roosevelt had a varied genealogy — English, French, and Dutch (or German).

Also, from the readings I have been doing about various European Protestant groups, Scottish Crypto-Jews, Sephardic Jews, and French Huguenot surnames. Many of whom were ‘forced’ to leave Europe because of the differing religious or political views.

He could/can have very well had genetic/ancestral “ties” to many of these cultural/genetic groups.

I do know that he is a very distant cousin on my tree — plus he is related to many of the other (previous) presidents of the United States; either by blood or by marriage.

Just a quick note of what you can find out about historical figures (you did not already know) by doing extended family tree research, and surname origins.

More later.

A better definition of “yeoman”

In 1086, William the Conqueror took his final Domesday Book Census of England, enumerating heads of households, tools, livestock and weapons.

Yeomen were defined as free men who owned property and owed allegiance to the King, but were above serfs and laborers. They held other men as share croppers and tenants to their property and were just below the landed gentry, who were in turn just below nobility and royalty in social status. Many of the yeomen held positions of authority in the community, such as sheriff and educated staff in the service to a local lord, but still they were free men.

In Reply to: Durham Parish, MD info / pictures by Rob Clinkscale     of 434

Rob & Deborah:

I know nothing of the Clinkscales history, but do know something about societal positions during this time period.

A “yeoman” was a person whose family had been in service to a family of another, often for centuries. A yeoman was a free man, and was often in charge of others who were still indentured to the landowner. He was more like what what we would now call a “foreman” or a “chief groundskeeper” or sometimes he was in charge of of all workers on a large estate. The first yeomen appeared in the early Middle Ages, especially in England, when certain peasants (serfs) were given their freedom and put in charge of others on the estate, because of services they may have performed for their master (fighting, for example). In this case, Adam may have worked for Mary’s father on an estate, or for someone else on a nearby estate.

The problem with Adam and Mary was that, if her family were indeed of the nobility, or were the owners of an estate, they would have been horrified that she would marry “beneath her station in life”. By doing so, she brought shame on the family itself and showed that her father could not impose his will upon her. In the early 18th century, this was more than enough reason to disown her, which seems to be what happened here.

In Reply to: Re: 4 CLINKSCALES AT ROBT.E.LEE’S SURRENDER by J Clinkscales of 434


The book, “The Appomattox Roster”, can be found in any good school or college library. I am not sure if it is in book stores, although surely you could order it. I found it in the Athens College Library, in Athens, Alabama. Also, there is a reenactment unit that portrays Co. “C” of the Palmetto Sharp-Shooters, which is the company the four Clinkscales are in. Here is their website:”

They have the rolls of all in the unit that surrenderred at Appomattox, company by company. By the way, my g.g.grandfather was in Co.”K” of the PSS. He and your Clinkscales ancestors in Co.”C” might have known each other.

I hope this little bit of info has been of some help or interest.

Take care,
