Other Known Beckingham Pedigrees
Other Beckingham Pedigrees that have been found and not yet linked to one of the others are : -
The earliest reference to Beckingham that I have relates to a John Beckingham who was in London in 1261.
Elias de Beckingham, died 1305, was said to be the only honest Judge in England during the reign of Edward I. There is believed to be a Lincolnshire connection with this one. He does get a mention in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography in 2004.
Robert Beckingham, died 1509, left a legacy to found "a free schole at the towne of Guldford". (Guildford, Surrey in England). Robert is known to have had a brother, Richard, but little else is known as yet. He may be tied in to the Salisbury Pedigree, but we are still working on this.
There are a group of Beckinghams around Charlbury, Oxfordshire in the late 1500's. Charlbury is not too far from Pudlecote which is mentioned in the Salisbury pedigree. There must be a link somewhere.
There is a Honeyborn Beckingham born about 1811 in St Dunstans, Middlesexto a William Beckingham and Anne Warkman. , He went from London to New Zealand in 1863. The present day family are in New Zealand and the UK. Honeyborn was "of St Andrew's Court, St Dunstans" when he married Sarah Rock in 1838. It is interesting to note that her brother, GEORGE ROCK married a HARRIET BECKINGHAM of Tilehurst, Reading. Could this mean that this group are part of the Great Hidden pedigree?
Several families originated in Ireland and are found in the USA, one being Patrick Beckingham who emigrated in 1888 and raised his family in Dover, New Hampshire.
There are also many families that I have in my records who are sometimes just parents and a child or children waiting to be added into a pedigree. Places mentioned in these range from the Isle of Wight, to Lincolnshire, to Essex as well as the USA.
