Families that appear in all Three Visitations

NameWikitree Comments
Coker Present, detail unknown
FilliolPresent, detail unknown
Framptonwikitree? important Dorset family lived Moreton. Involved in Swing, Tolpuddle Martyrs
Martin on wikitree (Martin Martyn) Athelhampton and Pale Park.Early dates need work. Some profiles need tidying. Family often gets odd emigrants linked to branches
Meggson wikitree but either did or still does link falsely to Churchill (Bradford Peverell
Ryves On wikitree, some important figures still need profiles(Bruno?) Watched closely by attentive member.
Strangways wikitree? v important family
Turbeville wikitree? quintissential Dorset gentry (see Hardy)
Williams wikitree? know of one female married a White of Poole

Families that appear in the 1565 and 1677 visitations

Name\wikitree Comments
Uvedale ?
White Descendants of 15th C Mayor of Poole, married Athelhampton heiress.

Possible descendants 19th C coopers. Have info from 1677 and wills but needs inputting ||

Paulet/Powlet Important family. Branches spread across other West Country counties

Families that appear on the 1565 and 1623 Visitations

Name\wikitree Comments
Cherverell/ SacheverelYes, think some dates need work
Erle? wikitree, Important family, parliamentarian in civil war (involved siege Corfe)
Grey Yes,till end of line when Lora Grey, heiress marries Pitt (might need first known generation(s)
Trenchard Yes, quite extensive, early profiles need work (lots of c and p)
Willoughby think Leonard Willoughby has a profile, family?

Families that appear on the 1623 and 1677 Visitations

Name\wikitree Comments
Bond Yes but needs further work, daughter involved with Churchill muddle
BruneYes (marries an Athelhampton heiress and next generations buried there detail unknown
Churchill A mix, some generations muddled with known false Churchill pedigree for the D of Malborough. The 'correct' one is supported by several wills and 20th C articles in Dorset Procedings. .V hard to disentangle! Doesn't help that Hutchins has both correct and incorrect versions(as pointed out by his editors) Some modern works also include the false one.
FrekeYes, quite extensive tree
Meller Yes, but problem with earliest generations : mother (Cockerham/Wolley).A place where visitation may be incorrect.
Mohun Yes , certainly some early profiles, (Moone of Bridport)

Families known to have extensive pedigrees that only appear on one Visitation

Name Notes
Tregonwell 16th C lawyer to 19 C founder of Bournemouth,think that much of this is on wikitree but some profiles have no bio
Pitt 16th C merchant to Prime Ministers, to Pitt Rivers still in County. Again quite a lot on wikitree but some profiles have no bio
Gould Goes back on wikitree to 'crusader (in Devon Visitation but ?? ) John Gould in 1195 From John 1372 sourced for a couple of generations then gap. There is one profile John Gould of Upway m Sarah Hussey with a linked son Robert (emigrant ) Robert does not exist in Hutchins, will check will of father. This is an important branch of a local family involved in running 17th C Dorchester Abranch of the family becameBaring Gould and produced the writer of Onward Christian Soldiers .There maybe Gould descendants still living locally (Goulds have a department store in Dorchester and a garden centre at Upway. A Robert Gould is the leader of Dorset council ...might just be a coincidence
