Interesting Finds

List interesting finds to share with the guest at the end of the week
Farewell ye friends whose tender care
Has long engaged my love;
Your fond embrace I now exchange
For better friends above
  • https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hankinson-306 we know he was in a gun club because they wrote a newspaper report and claimed the scores were bad that week because of...wait for it...defective pigeons!
  • Hugh Vaughan Knight (abt.1500-abt.1536) is Devon’s 13 great grandfather - from the profile...” Sir Hugh Vaughan, also known as Vaughan of Litleton, was a Welshman, apparently of low birth. He fought the last judicial duel sanctioned by the Court of Chivalry in front of King Henry VII in 1492 and held several roles in the English Royal Court during his life in service to the Crown.” When he died in 1536 he was buried in Westminster Abbey. [Note the birth date on the profile is currently set at 1500 to enable England Project members working in it even though they are not pre-1500 certified, please don’t change it!]
  • The new parents of Joane (White) Townley (1615-1674), also on the Townley line by marriage, give Devon a relationship to English royalty through this chap William Boleyn KB (abt.1449-1505) who is Elizabeth I’s great grandfather and Devon’s 14th great grandfather. There are also at least three MPs (Members of Parliament) in the Sackville line. This found by a new WikiTree challenge participant Ann (Browning-5288).
  • Mary Ellen Hankinson (1850-1884) is probably the Helen Hankinson, “a patient in the Insane Asylum from Licking County, crawled through the bars of a window in the fifth story to-day and fell to the ground, receiving injuries from which she died In five minutes.“ She is the only sibling (of ten) who had died before their family reunion in 1900 (see free space page below, space:Family_Reunion-2 Hankinson family reunion in 1900)
  • Silas Fickel was the grandson of Joseph Fickle (the fourth great-grandfather of Devon). He served in the Civil War, and had his leg amputated after being shot. He married, had a daughter, adopted a son, and took in a granddaughter. He was a shoe maker by trade. He lived to the age of 86.
  • Simeon Hankinson (1817-1888) and Susannah (Collingham) Hankinson (1814-1893) moved from New Jersey to Licking County Ohio in the early 1800s. They had 11 children whose descendants and their legacy continue in the area until the present. They had 43 grandchildren. Hankinson's legacy

Brick Walls

Please make sure you have a source for every step back from the great grandparents before adding profiles...DO NOT COPY PROFILES FROM OTHER FAMILY TREES, even the comparison tree. This is our WikiTree year of accuracy and we need sources.

Needs Work

  1. The Hankinson line is different - WT & FamilySearch disagree in a number of places (WT correct). Careful sourcing is needed.
  2. Margaret (Goble) Hankinson b 1764 in ?? needs research, locations and sources. She most likely died in New Jersey, United States.
  3. There are a number of lines going back from US to UK and far back in time. They need careful checking and sourcing - see above under “Brickwalls”
