We used Ancestry.com data to verify all possible family history for the census years 1851, 1861 & 1871 - In the 320 transcriptions for each year approx 50 individuals with the surname BOVINGTON were transcribed as BEVINGTON which for Bovington researchers is an absolute disaster. This quality of workmanship should be recalled when using Ancestry.com

1881 now complete - found no errors whatsoever - suspect not the work of Ancestry.com

1891 now complete 139 transcribing errors in 565 entries that is a 24% transcribing error - the original scan is nearly always very clear.

The Publisher’s Bevington/Beavington Family Tree

 

              First Records originate at Berkerley Castle, Gloucestershire and start with Elias son of Harding who was known as Elias de Bevington. Bevington being the name of the “Bevington Hundred” an area of land granted to Elias by his father. There are records of Maurice de Bevington 1110 - 1175, Robert de Bevington 1200 - 1250 and William de Bevington 1230 - 1300. But modern viewable records start with Jeffrey Bevington 1495/1549 and Margery his Wife of Honington, Worcestershire, now Warwickshire.

 

              The Family Tree is massive, with many lines clearly defined to the present day. This particular Tree concerns itself with the BEAVINGTON Family, who descended from 1495 Jeffrey via his son c.1530 Robert, The Beavington name is first recorded in 1578 with the death of Robert the Elder’s son and from there on it is not difficult to follow the line to the present day.

            We have an estimated birthdate of 1495, and an actual death date of 1549. We will assume he married at 30 years and allow 2 years spacing for the children - it wont be accurate but very close.

 

            "Orton" claims the marriage of Jeferey 1519

 

 

These are the children:

 

WILLIAM BEVENTON 2004 Born abt. 1530 died 21 September 1584

                        married Alyse who died 25 July 1573 and Ann Shieve she died 10 April 1581

                        William Beavington married Anne Chewe 22 August 1574

ROBERT BEVENTON 2001 Born abt. 1532 died 27th January 1605

                        married Margery in Cripplegate London

RICHARD BEVENTON Born abt. 1534

                        married Elizabeth Anett 20 July 1551

JONE BEVENTON Born about 1536

ELIZABETH BEVENTON Born abt. 1538

 

THOMAS BEVENTON 2002 Born about 1540

 

CHRISTOPHER BEVENTON 2003 Born about 1542 died 1606

                        married Ellin Scarlet

JOHN BEVENTON Born abt. 1544 He died December 8th 1588 in Shipston

 

AGNES BEVENTON Born abt. 1546 she died 1582

 

ANNE BEVENTON aka Johan the younger Born about 1548

 

            In the will of the mother she calls her two surviving girls Jone and Anne, but the will of the father, both give the name Johan. We will assume "Mother knows Best"

            Also in the will of the mother a Nycolas is mentioned, certainly not her son, but could be the middle son of Christopher or a brother to her husband - we have no way of ever knowing.

We have a fair knowledge of William and his wives, but sadly lacking on his children.

                                                        

             Likely this family had girls and we cannot allocate them, but certainly William had wives.

 

             Ed: notes indicate Alyse widow of William buried Jul 25 1573

THE HONINGTON FAMILY OF

1555 NICHOLAS BEAVINGTON & JANE TYDSAL

ASSUMED TO BE THE SON OF WILLIAM AND ALYSE

3003

 

            Ed Note: This Nicholas is the son of one of the boys listed above, we have at this time no documentation on his birth, but the signs are obvious I hope. Nicholas first son is William from that we can deduce Nicolas's father was WILLIAM and the first girl was ANN that is the name of William's mother.

             Married Margaret Palmer 2nd November 1599

THE HONINGTON FAMILY OF

c.1542 CHRISTOPHER BEVINGTON AND ELLEN OR ELLIN SCARLETT

CHRISTOPHER IS THE SON OF JEFEREY BEVENTON AND MARGERY2003

 

Christopher the Elder died 20th December 1607

Ellin or Ellen will remarry - in Bishopton to Robert Bachelor on 3rd May 1610

 

Their children:

 

NICHOLAS BEVINGTON 3004 Born 10th January 1594 died August 1617

            Married Elizabeth Warkman

 

In 1594 saw the completion of William Shakespeare's earliest plays, and work was started on his first mature accomplishment the tragedy "Titus Andronicus"

 

WILLIAM BEVINGTON 3005 Born 21st August 1597 died November 1637

             Married Elizabeth Claredge in 1634

JEFFERY BEVINGTON 3006 Born 24th January 1602 died 17th April 1676

            Married Mary Claredge and Alice Curtis 24 Sept 1635 in Stratford

 

 

THE HONINGTON FAMILY OF

1594 NICOLAS BEVINGTON & ELIZABETH WARKMAN

NICOLAS IS THE SON OF CHRISTOPHER BEVINGTON SENIOR

3004

 

                        The Last will of Nicolas is in the possession of the Editor, he died very young, with one son. His wife Elizabeth Warkman is the daughter of Mark Warkman both mentioned in the will. Obviously, Elizabeth is left with a small child after the early death of her husband and she remarried - Richard Hancock, on 16th November 1619. Elizabeth died 22nd August 1669 and Richard Hancock died 22nd February 1663.

            Anne Bevington, likely a sister to Nicolas married Edward Warkman 28th February 1619.

            With the finding of this will it really helps putting a few families into line.

 

Their child:

 

MARK BEVINGTON 4004 Born about 1615

            Married Alice about 1639 In 1615 the first white man to visit the future site of Toronto was the French Explorer Etienne Brule. Later in 1720 the French established a small trading post there - you should see the town now!

SHIPSTON ON STOUR

1650

*******************

 

THE VILLAGE/TOWN OF SHIPSTON

 

 

            Honington would seem to be the beginning of the Bevington/Beavington family line for our purposes, but about 1619 the first to travel down the road to Shipston in 1619 was Mark Bevington, he would be 4 years of age, his Father, Nicolas had died in 1617 and his mother Elizabeth had married again to a Richard Hancock, a Shipston resident. About 1639, Mark married Alice and had a least 3 children namely Mark, Nicolas and Benjamin all born between 1640 and 1650, Mark married Katherine and Nicolas married Grace Cooper. Nicolas will be an Innkeeper in Shipston likely for his brother Benjamin who by the early 1700's owns the Plough Inn and other properties and land,

 

            The next to move into Shipston was Francis Bevington and his wife Elizabeth Hautin who start their family in 1675, a Tanner by trade, they have 11 children and 9 survive, only his son Francis carries on the Tanning Business and has a daughter named Mary. Samuel who uses the name Beavington, Francis's younger brother, also goes to Shipston and follows in his brother's footsteps and becomes a Tanner and has seven children, the youngest of which will be another Samuel Beavington who married Elizabeth Kilsby and have 10 chyldren, adopt the Quaker faith and move to Chipping Campden.

 

            In all from 1640 until 1761 there are a dozen Bevington/Beavington families and about 62 births.

 

            The Editor is deeply indebted to Mr. Alfred Woodward, for his extra-ordinary interest in this work and for his efforts to obtain items most relevant to our family.

 

            In the Fall 1995, Alfred Woodward sends copies of photographs of Shipston, including the Plough Inn and The Tannery all owned in the early years by the family.

 

            There was a Quaker Meeting House on the main Street, now a Public Library, today several memorial stones can be seen in the grass covered area behind the building. Peter I Drinkwater produced a beautiful booklet in Old Fashioned Script in June 1995 recalling the structure of the building over the years and after the decline in Quakerism in the latter part of the 18th Century the building was used temporarily by the local Methodists, Adult School Room. Evangelical Fellowship and today the city library. Photographs of 2 grave sites show brickwork lined graves with a doomed roof lying just 2 feet below the ground, special thanks to the Shipston Historian Mr. Alfred Woodward, for obtaining these photographs for me.

 

            In the summer of 1994 the Editor and his wife were window shopping in this beautiful little town, and stopped outside a picture framing shop. admiring a picture of Chipping Campden in the window. Realizing the picture was not within our budget we entered the store and enquired of the owner if had other pictures of Honington, Ilmington or Campden. He walked over to the side of the store and opened a large draw containing all manner of pictures, cards and photographs. He reached for a 1911 picture postcard of "The Bevington Cottages" at Ilmington which belonged to my great x 5 grandfather Robert and his brother Thomas. The postcard is now framed and hanging in our foyer.

 

             The Tannery, perhaps not the most imposing building in Shipston, is pictured as a rather austere building, and has perhaps been rebuilt over the years, but was finally pulled down in 1980 and replaced with houses, Several photographs of the Plough Inn reveal a brick faced building, and again I suspect has been modernized many times since the 1600's, one can imagine the number of "pints" pulled at the bar over the centuries, and the number of barmaids that have washed the glasses.

 

            A photograph of Sheep Street, in Shipston shows the house of John Pitway next to Akers Store, the Editor ponders whether it remained in the Pitway family and in turn was home to Edward Pitway and Mary Beavington.

Nicholas was a widower when he died and no children seem to have been in evidence except for the signatures on the Will of John and Thos Beavington but not their children I think these two gentlemen die a few years later in Shipston.

            Benjamin died 8th November 1727, Mary his wife died 5th November 1749

 

September 25th 1995. Today obtained the will of Benjamin Beavington (Bevonton).

 

            This Gentleman was wealthy, he had numerous properties in Shipston including the Plough Inn, perhaps the best way to cover the Will is to show what each beneficiary received under their name.

 

March 8th 1995, Today I received the will of Mary Beavington a document of immense value to me. The will is very legible and have selected interesting items from it.

            The rents are to be used to bring up Ann & Mary Pittway and William Thomas.

MARY BEAVINGTON 6008 Born 3rd August 1688

            Mary married Edward Pittway on Shipston on the 9th April 1710

            It seems obvious that Mary Beavington has died before the year 1742

THOMAS BEAVINGTON 6007 Born 10th March 1690 will Mary Sarah and have 11 children

1690 The first newspaper in America published it was a Boston Newsheet, Benjamin Franklin was one of the 3 publishers.

Rachell. Mary, Sarah and Alice will receive 5 pounds each from their fathers will and will share a yard of land.

 

THE SHIPSTON FAMILY OF

1685 WILLIAM BEAVINGTON AND MARY ?

WILLIAM IS THE SON OF BENJAMIN BEAVINGTON AND MARY

6006

            In 1742 it is obvious that William Beavington has died and Mary has arranged for the well - being of Benjamin his son, with an immediate payment of 12 pounds on her death , which she left with a fellow named Joseph Hunt for the benefit of Benjamin. Benjamin also gets property.

            Mary, Williams wife will remarry 30th November 1726 to William Pittway. I have sneaking hunch Mother in Law is not a happy camper over this for in her will she leaves Mary her daughter in Law 1/-.

            William the father dies 7th October 1724

Their children:

 

BENJAMIN BEAVINGTON Born prior to the death of his father in 1724

            Benjamin becomes a beneficiary in his Grandfathers Will as follows:

            Mary indirectly benefits from her Grandfathers Will she will get 130 pounds from her brother when he takes possession of certain land,

 

THE SHIPSTON FAMILY OF

EDWARD PITTWAY AND 1688 MARY BEAVINGTON

MARY IS THE DAUGHTER OF BENJAMIN BEAVINGTON AND MARY

6008

 

Mary Beavington is the daughter of Benjamin Beavington and is a beneficiary in her fathers will as follows:

             I give and bequeath unto my Son in Law Edward Pitway twenty shillings and to my daughter Mary Pitway his now wife (Who hath had her portion already paid her) five pounds for her own use in rememberance of me.

 

Their children:

 

The parents were married on 9th April 1710

EDWARD PITWAY Born about 1711 eldest son

            In the Will of Edward's Grandfather Benjamin Beavington this young fellow will be a beneficiary as follows:

            ITEM: I give and bequeath unto my Grandson Edward Pitway, Eldest son of my Daughter Mary Pitway One Shilling (Now this child got the shilling - must have been in Grandpa's bad books).

JOHN PITWAY about 1717 £5 was given to John in his Grandfather Will to go as an apprentice

STEPHEN PITWAY about 1719 £5 was given to Stephen in his Grandfather's Will - apprentice.

ELIZABETH PITWAY about 1721 £10 in Grandfathers Will to be paid 2 years after his death.

ANN PITTWAY Born after the death of Grandpa Benjamin i.e. after 1727

MARY PITWAY Born after the death of Grandpa Benjamin i.e. after 1727

            I think Benjamin Pitway must die young because Jarretts Leys originally willed to him is given to his sisters Ann & Mary in Mary Beavington's will.

 

THE SHIPSTON ON STOUR FAMILY OF

1690 THOMAS BEAVINGTON & SARAH

THOMAS IS THE SON OF BENJAMIN AND MARY

6007

            In his grandmother Mary's will, Mark will get a bunch of household effects leaving me to believe he may be still resident in Shipston in the 1740's.

 

            In 1761 Mark is Living in Barcheston and handles the paperwork relating to the death of his father.

THE SHIPSTON AND BARCHESTON FAMILY OF

1719 MARK BEAVINGTON & MARTHA KNIBB & ELIZABETH JARVIS AND MARY THOMAS HIS FIRST COUSIN

MARK IS THE SON OF 1690 THOMAS AND SARAH

7006

 

 

            Mark married Martha Knibb 28 Dec 1747 in Shipston, she died 15th January 1754

            Mark the father married Elizabeth Jarvis 11 Feb 1755

Tysoe: Martha, wife of George Knibb died 23rd June 1725 age 72 years, This must be Martha's grandmother.

            Mark handles the paperwork relating to the death of his father Thomas Beavington in 1761, I am not sure whether or not he takes possession of all the effects which are:

Deceased wearing apparel and ready money 1 pound

A Copyhold (I think this is a leasehold) ---- ---- in Shipston consisting of 5 tenements held under the Dean of Worcester for four lives in which are 3 only 160 pounds

The --- of a piece of ground called Jarretts Leys holding under the Dean and Chapter etc for 4 lives

One Cottage the same tenure only 2 lives in being 12 pounds

Another cottage the same tenure after the decease of an old life for one life only 8 Pounds

Rent due to the decease at the time of his death 5 Pounds 18 Shillings Total 216 Pounds 18 Shillings

            I am sure Mark lives in Shipston having moved from Barcheston after his fathers death.

Their children:

 

Mark & Elizabeth have a baby in London in 1766

AT THE MATERNITY HOSPITAL IN HOLBORN LONDON MARK BEVENTON AND ELIZABETH HAVE A CHILD AND RECORD THE FACT THAT MARK IS FROM SHIPSTON.

THIS FAMILY FITS THE BILL

WILLIAM BEAVINGTON 20th December 1766 Bapt on the 24th.

This family went to London likely knew William and Susanna there.

            I think this Mark is a devil for punishment, in all my searching this really is the only family that lives in Barcheston, Mark gets married a third time to Mary Thomas his first cousin.

THE ASHBY DE LA ZOUCH FAMILY OF

c.1750 WILLIAM BEAVINGTON AND MARY

WILLIAM IS THE SON OF 1715 BENJAMIN BEAVINGTON AND SARAH BULSTRODE

8002

 

 

                        There is a marriage between Mary Beavington and Thomas Cantrell in 1796 in Ashby de la Zouch - I don't know at this stage but it looks like maybe this William died and Mary remarried. This is the only available Mary in Ashby.

A Mary Beavington is a Wine and Spirit Merchant in Market Place in 1841 - It looks like we may have 2 Marys here somehow.

            Death of Mary Beavington Ashby de la Zouch in Dec 1850 15/4

 

Their children:

 

ELIZABETH BEAVINGTON 23rd Jun 1779

            Elizabeth Beavington of Ashby married John Clarkson 9th Feb 1804

 

            THE I.G.I. GIVES THE FOLLOWING BEAVINGTON AND HANNAH ELIZABETH HAVE JOHN CLARKSON 8th September 1826

              JOHN 1st June 1828

                        I'm scratching my head over this one. - But it looks like John Beavington's real name is John Beavington Clarkson

BENJAMIN BEAVINGTON recorded birth in the 3rd quarter of 1837 but sadly to die in the next quarter of 1837. But the name is most important and gives continuity to the "Benjamin" name.

            It is possible that Benjamin is the son of William and Sarah below, I guess we could get a birth certificate and find out.

Alice the daughter of wealthy Benjamin Beavington will do well by his will, although it is probable that her husband is not among one of Benjamin's favourite in laws.

Items from the will include:

 

I bequeath to my Son in Law John Thomas, one Guinea to buy him a ring (For the benefit of those who do not know 1 guinea is £1 and 1 shilling)

 

The Will further states that the Plough is to be given to Mark Beavington son of Thomas, but the paragraph continues to the benefit of Alice Thomas. And as for the remaining, All that other part of the Messuage or tenement belonging to the Plough next and adjoining to the Sign of the Black Swan now in the possession of John Thomas and Alice his wife together with the cellar the boarded room and Chambers over the Same I give etc after the death of my loving wife Mary Beavington unto my Daughter Alice Thomas for and during the form of her natural life only, together with free passage to and from the pump at all times for the water. Then after Alice's decease the property will be divided between her children but with the exception of Mary - for reasons I don't know yet.

 

I further my will and desire is that all that flatt Building belonging to that part of the plough as I have in this my will given to my daughter Alice Thomas shall be kept in good and sufficient tennantable repair by her, and I further will and desire is that my daughter Alice Thomas shall pay her part and proportion towards the repair of the pump when and as often as there shall occasion.

 

According to Alice's father John Thomas is a Barber in Shipston

Alice will get title to property on Sheep Street, Shipston from Benjamin Alice's father.

            In his will Mark also recognizes Robert BEAVington and Alice Bevington to be his children but Robert was adopted for reason unknown but likely because their father died when his children were young and I suspect the mother also died,

 

Their children:

 

MARK BEVINGTON 18th July 1677

ELIZABETH BEVINGTON 8th May 1680

ELIZABETH BEVINGTON 2nd April 1684

            1684 Bermuda became a British Colony, first discovered in 1503, settled 100 years later

            Married a Pilkington

JOANNES (JOHN) BEVINGTON 18th June 1686

NICOLAS BEVINGTON 16th June 1693 died October 1696

ROBERT BEAVINGTON Born 1676 S.A. 1996 died 27 January 1755 in Ilmington

ALICE BEAVINGTON Born 6th February 1696

            At the age of 22 according to the will of Mark, Alice lives at home and is bequeathed the bed she now lyes on, with the blankets, coverlid, curtain, bedstead and two pairs of sheets.

            Robert's biological father died 23rd April 1700, the mother I have no data on at all.

            To add to the story, Ben Beventon (Benjamin Beavington) witnessed the will of Mark, Benjamin Beavington was the brother of Mark and would die the following year.

TANNER

JEFFERY IS THE SON OF CHRISTOPHER BEVINGTON SNR. & ELLEN SCARLET

.                                                                          3006

 

Marriage Registered 30 Oct 1627

Most of the children of this marriage will become Quakers and we will call them the Ettington & Shipston group.

 

In 1720 all the local meeting houses contribute towards the publication of a book called, William Jewels, History of the People called Quakers.

 

            The Will of Jeofrey Bevington dated 8th April 1676 - Proved 4th June 1676 at Worcester by Samuel Beavington one of his executors (his son)

 

            I Jeofrey Bevington of Honington, In the County of Warwicke, Tanner, being of perfect minde etc, I give unto my son Samuell Bevington all those closes which I have in Shipston upon Stower, in the County of Worcester called the hoame Closes otherwise known by the name of the Tythe Barne Close which is now in the occupation of George Parker and likewise the barne called the Tythe Barne and orchard there unto belonging, together with the lease which I have thereof.

            Unto my youngest sonne Jeoffrey Beavington all that my Quarter of one yard Land with the appurtenances which I have in Shipston upon Stower now in my own possession. And likewise all that Closse of inclosed ground in Shipston aforesaid which I bought of Thomas Mancell, together with the lease I have thereof. Unto my youngest daughter Hannah Bevington £100

            I give unto my eldest sonne Christopher Bevington all that part of my messuage and lands in Honington wherein I now dwell which I bought of my Father in Law Robert Batchelor

(actually his step father his Mother remarried in 1610) late of Honington deceased. If my said sonne Christopher shall die without issue I give the said messuage and lands unto my said youngest sonne Jeoffrey Bevington and his heirs.

            I give unto my kinsman Jeoffrey Neale sonne of my sonne in law Robert Neale £5 and to Margarett the daughter of my son in law William Gunn £5. to my sonne in law John Greene 10s. to my Goddaughter the daughter of my son Francis 5s.

            I give the rest of my goods unto my wife Alice Bevington and I make my wife and my sonne Samuell Bevington my Executors

            Lastly, I give unto the poore people of this Towne of Honington 20s.

Witnesses Richard Brandis, & William Horne - Total value £531. 6s. 10d.

 

Their children:-

 

ANNE BEVINGTON 8th November 1629 * married William Gunn about 1650

            Anne Gunn at the time of her fathers death would be 47 - if she was still living - but I think she has died.

 

CHRISTOPHER BEVINGTON Born 18th October 1631

            Christopher will be 45 years of age at the death of his father and he will inherit buildings and land in Honington - But the will said if he should die without issue then the property will go to Jeoffrey his youngest brother - I guess father knew that Christopher was a confirmed bachelor

Christopher will not become a Quaker, and I can find no record of a wedding, he does

stay in Honington, and died on March 27th 1696. in 1682 he will be a Churchwarden at the Honington Parish Church.

            Christopher is not blessed with great wealth, at the time of his death admin 16th June 1696. his estate was valued at £10. 15s. 0d. His assets were given to his brother Francis Beavington, of Shipston.

 

ELIZABETH BEVINGTON [Quaker] Born 6th July 1634 Quaker

            Elizabeth married John Greene on 15th May 1665, but it looks like John Greene married again to Elizabeth Weftley in 1671

 

MARGARET BEVINGTON [Quaker] Born 19th June 1636 married John Washborne 27th August 1669

            Jack V. Wood book "Some Rural Quakers" mentions John Washborne as a Banbury Quaker.

             Margaret is not mentioned in her fathers will.

 

SARAH BEVINGTON Born 13th March 1637 married Rob Neal 14 July 1652     Sarah is not mentioned in her father's will but her son is.

 

ALICE BEVINGTON Born 3rd November 1639 married John Crow 15 May 1674

            Alice was known as Alice of Eatington

FRANCIS BEVINGTON 4005 Born 26th March 1645. married Elizabeth Hautin 3rd October 1674

             Francis at the time of his father's death is 31 years of age, I am pretty sure that Francis's father is the godfather of Alice, Francis's eldest daughter.

            In 1696 Francis inherits the estate of his brother Christopher - only £10

 

MARY BEVINGTON [Quaker] Born 25th April 1647 she married Richard Tredwell of Sibford 22 Aug 1675 Sibford is in Oxfordshire I think, has a large Quaker population - a school maybe.

 

HANNAH BEVINGTON [Quaker] Born 11th March 1648

            Hannah was 28 years of age at the death of her father - she received £100

Hannah married Thomas William Noall (likely his name is Wall a W looks like a NO) married in the Friends Meeting House in Shipston on Stour on the 8th day of March 1687.

            Present at the wedding is William Beavington her brother.

            Mary Beavington her sister Jeffery Beavington her father - No it can't be her father, this is her brother, we have no record of his birth but we know he is alive in 1721, because his brother William will leave him 10 pounds in his will.            She will have at least 2 children, Jeffery and Robert

 

SAMUEL BEVINGTON 4006 Born 15th January 1650, Samuel married Mary

WILLIAM BEVINGTON 4007 [Quaker] Born 14th August 1642,. Quaker died 7th August 1721

             William married Mary Stanley in 1677, Mary died on 13 June 1694

            Ann, William's second wife died 7 Mar 1719            William is a tanner by trade.

     (From this time forward he will be known as 1642 William, for he has a very long family line in front of him).

 

On August 22nd 1642 the English Civil War started, in fact it was really 3 wars, the first between King Charles I and Parliament, allied with the Scottish Covenanters, lasted until 1646. The second, in which a Scottish Army fought for Charles I against Parliament took place in 1648, and the last, in which the Scots were led by Charles II as their king lasted from 1649 to 1651.

 

JEFFERY BEVINGTON Born about 1652- still alive after 1721

            Jeffery does not show in the Honington Church Records, but is the youngest son so about 1652 would appear to be a reasonable guess.

            This lady is a very strong Quaker, much like her late husband I suspect, from all the money given in the will she was a wealthy lady.

            But the question why didn't she give money to her children ?

            Just no information on this family

            Editors Note, these children were born to [Galfredus] which I read is the alternative name for Jeffery, and they were born in Church of England, without any doubt Margaret is a Quaker, but it appears that none of the children survive according to the will, maybe that is so but!

He was the leader of the Quakers at Broad Campden.

 

Who is the following chap? he was recorded in the Quaker book, he was must have been a member of someone's family.

 

JOHN born 1733 died 8th March 1779 at the age of 46 years he was not a Quaker but buried in the Quaker burial ground.

 

            This is confusing but eventually will figure it out,

 

 

 

            June 21st 1994, on film number 0811750 - Quakers in the Cotswolds. part of the film deals with Broad Campden, and the major family involved is the Beavingtons of course. Maybe it will close a few gaps for me.

THE WORCESTER FAMILY OF

1765 JOHN BEVINGTON AND CATHERINE

 

JOHN BEVINGTON IS THE SON OF 1733 JAMES BEVINGTON AND SUSANNAH HODGKINS UNPROVEN

 

 

Their child:

 

JOSEPH BEVINGTON Born 14th September 1783

 

            August 27th 1996, Suddenly while connecting the 1881 Worcester Census to the biographical sheets for the Worcester Bevingtons, things started to fall in place.

 

            First it became obvious that the family lines in Worcestershire were very identifiable, The Worcester City group in the 1800's were all Glovers by trade, and I recalled that John Wheeley Bevington leather merchant of Bermondsey, Quaker, had a branch in Worcester, and sure enough John Wheeley B. lived in Worcester in 1840, so it must have been that John Wheeley was dealing with relatives, the Joseph Line in Worcester had c.1770 John Bevington as a start, and I felt he must have been a relative, but could find no trace of him in the Quaker File, But checking the index in the Beavington File, there he was, John Beavington 1765 son of James and Susannah Hodgkins of the Broad Campden, Quakers, and James was a cousin of John Wheeley Bevington - it fitted especially when 1765 John proved to be the son of a Tanner.

 

            Now Back to Worcester, Worcester City had 2 lines of Bevingtons, Joseph as mentioned and C. 1773 Peter Bevington and Ann Strain who were also Glovers by trade. It is obvious that the 2 lines are related, but Peter does not appear come from the Broad Campden - so more detective work, must get films for Worcester, etc.

 

            August 30th 1996. I am now rereading the Book Bevington & Sons, large leather factors in, before 1837, Bevingtons and Sons owned or leased two premises in Worcester known as Clapgate and Three Springs, these enterprises were mainly aimed at the glove trade. Worcester was a centre of the glove business and had their own trade association. 1726 Tim Bevington was involved with the company in Worcester 1795/96

 

            Timothy Bevington 1726 - 1802 was a glover and leather dresser in Worcester and a Minister in the Quaker Religion, he was a man of some note. He had two sons Joseph and George and daughter Hannah.             - JOSEPH and GEORGE surely left their mark somewhere, but according to R..G. They never married, so this family is not responsible for any of the Worcester Population

 

            There is another major line in Worcestershire, The 1740 Daniel Line, This is in the northern part of the County. Belbroughton, Droitwich, Dodderhill - This Line too needs research.

 

Excerpt from the Book Bevingtons & Sons, by Geoffrey Bevington

 

            The next sign of things to come was the decline of the glove leather business and the disposal of the Worcester factories. As far back as 1879 Worcester had been causing concern, and it was suggested that it might be used for dressing Kid Calf; in March 1881 Messrs Fownes were enquiring about the Clapgate Yard as a warehouse for gloves and Mr JBB agreed to let the yard for 90 or 95 pounds. In September 1882 it was decided to give up glove manufacture which had been carried on at Worcester without much success and in April 1883 Clapgate was sold for 1,080 pounds. Fives years later the Three Springs Yard was sold to Mr Roberts who had been previously been running the business for Bevingtons and had started on his own, for 18,000 pounds.

 

Sept 1996: Now looking at the Worcester Quakers - Glovers everywhere you look BANGHAM, DARK, WHITEHEAD, HOLDSHIP, BARRETT, BURLINGHAM. and lots more.

ALFRED FREDERICK SEFTON BEVINGTON Born 6th October .1885

           *1901* Alfred Bevington a stepson to Henry Baker age 38 a widower (Likely this family)

           Married Kaziah Chopin

           1998 Deirdre Tainton nee Bevington Alfred’s Grand-daughter recalls family history: My Grandad was orphaned quite young and was sent to an Aunt in Sutton, Surrey. He stayed with her until he was 14 or 15 then moved to London where he worked in a Pawnshop. He slept under the counter because he was homeless. He later married Kaziah Chopin and they ran a shop together called Bevington and Son in Deptford, London, it was a newsagent/sweet shop and he subsequently served in the army in W.W.II.

 

Ed Note: Its is sad that Alfred Sefton did not know his very rich relatives living in Bermondsey - The leather Works Bevington & Sons, also the musical aspect should not be considered unusally because Henry Bevington was a Professor of Music and with his sons were the proprietors of Bevington & Sons Organ Builders in London.

Recollections of Lawrence Cahill.

 

 Alfred Bevington owned a newsagents and tobacconist shopat 3 Church Street, Deptford, which my parents bought from them. I was born above the shop. The Bevingtons moved to a house in Rookmill Road, Deptford, quite close to the old shop. Grandfather Augustus Henry Choppin lived with them (Kezia was the youngest daughter) until his death. He was the only grand parent I ever knew.

Robert s referred to as Robert the Elder.

            He is alive and well in 1600 when his sons kids are being born.

 

            Now we are getting into solid data The existence of Robert is confirmed both by the births of his children, and on the death of his wife.

 

His Children:

 

FRANCES BEVINGTON born Feb 24th 1574 she married Richard Kilbee Oct 21 1615, this seems late but this is the only Frances we have found.

RICHARD BEVINGTON born April 5th 1578 and died 21 Jun 1578

ELIZABETH BEVINGTON born Aug 7th 1579

CHRISTOPHER BEVINGTON born November 14th 1583 - Sir Ernest felt this was in his family line, but dates prove his Christopher was born approximately 1573.

ROBERT BEVINGTON born 27th August 1570, born in London, Cripplegate. I guess that is where Robert found his wife Margery.            In 1613 he is churchwarden for Thomas Brownment, the Vicar of Honington

 

THE KILBEE FAMILY OF HONINGTON

 

Richard Kilbee married Frances Beavington October 21 1615 in Honington

 

His father was also Richard and he had these children.

ROBERT KILBEE December 17th 1606

We have Joane Kilbee dying May 11 1594 this must be the grandmother, I don’t know Richard's Mothers name yet Also we have a Marg W. Kilbee dying 26 Dec 1606.

            Now we start having trouble, records for Honington are excellent at this time but there are so few births, maybe this is because of the Plague or some other reason, one of the 2 boys above will carry on the line but I think he married very late and my guess it will be Robert.

            July 7th 1994 - I know why now, many of our kin have turned to Quakerism - and we find the births in the Quaker records

Editors note: What a dogs breakfast, the wives of these two boys are unknown, but suspect something like they both had the same wife, could be Thomas died young and Robert took the children, anyway to make everything easy we will call it one family.

            The father Robert Bevington, referred to in a deed of mortgage as being in possession of a cottage in Ilmington. Ref: Shakespeare Birthplace trust, DA 5625

 

            The present owners of "The Bevingtons" are Nigel & Fiona Tustain, The Bevingtons, Ilmington, Nr. Shipston on Stour, Warks, England. Telephone 0608-682263. Their most beautiful thatched home is really the consolidation of 3 cottages, that once rented for a total of Four Pounds Ten Shillings a year. The writer by strange coincidence while window shopping in Shipston managed to buy a 1911 postcard of the cottage which when mounted was Fourteen Pounds - now that’s inflation.

 

Films: 0504445 Ilmington "Bloom"

Today March 19th 1994, this is the farthest back I have gone.

Where Robert & Elizabeth come from I don’t know, but I will.

March 21st: more data: having found his death it states that Robt Beavington aged 81 years died 27 Jan 1755, now I figure that means he was born on or about 1676.

 

Elizabeth his wife died Oct 9 1747. The record states wife of Robt Beavington Snr - Oct 9th 1747. That means that his son is alive in 1747

 

ELIZABETH BEAVINGTON 4 Feb 1713 - She married Nathan Pleyden 17 Oct 1743.

                               Nathan will be a farmer in Ilmington

                               (See Nathan Pleadon family record)

 

JOHN BEAVINGTON Born 30 Sep 1703

            Married Alice Sutch in Ebrington on 17th October 1726

 

ROBERT BEAVINGTON Born 26 Jan 1709 died 5 May 1711 - corrected.

 

ROBERT BEAVINGTON Born 16 Apl 1719 * Our line continues

                          Robert will be a farmer - good data coming.

              ROBERT married Hannah Paxton on 4 Oct 1743

 

            In the film number 0206986 Overseers accounts for Ilmington Robert starts appearing on the committee in April 1765 at that time he would be 46 years old and a farmer. There are many entries all verifying accounts of the Overseers (Maybe I better explain: The church had the responsibility to look after the poor of the parish and the 2 Overseers were responsible for raising the money on a levy against landowners and paying out on a weekly basis to the poor on average about 2 shillings a week.)

            Robert is very active in the 1770's on the committee and obviously gets involved with other village duties, In the extracts file you will see a letter sent from him to a Mr Wells concerning an indenture obviously, an apprenticeship for a local boy.

 

THOMAS BEAVINGTON 19 Aug 1705 * Our line continues sideways

                            Thomas becomes a Weaver and the owner of cottages

Thomas married Mary Hulston, Norton & Lenchwick 19 May 1725.

 

     The first record on Thomas's doings are on Oct 22 1758. when the Overseers pays to him £1. 10s which is rent for a cottage for 1 year at first I thought the church was helping Thomas but soon realized he owns several cottages and rents them through this committee - Politics !! In 1768 Thomas is one of the two Overseers, another entry I thought was priceless was - Paid Thos Beavington 10s 11¼ for "out of pocket expenses" - good going Thomas. There are many entries for Thomas but I will leave the film for one dark winter's day. Before I forget. Thomas sold 7 ells of cloth for 10/6, so what is an ell? July 5 1994 - An ell of cloth is about 45" long I guess by the size of the loom wide. That’s a lot of work for 10/6.

 

            In film 0504448 Thomas's 3 cottages are mentioned in a transaction between a fellow named Townsend and a Geo Adams on Sept 4th 1773. - Possible Thomas has died recently he would be 68 years at this time.

 

            Thomas Beavington, 26 January 1770, Assignment for 1000 years by the executor of Charles Goodwyn to Thomas Beavington of Ilmington, weaver, for £60 of "all that new built messuage near the dwelling house of Samuel Clarson in Ilmington and all that bay of old building called the stable now adjoining the new messuage with half a little garden adjoining". first reference to this property 31 October 1688.

            But I should remark that the women are not involved in any village business - things have changed over the last 250 years.

 

April 27th 1994,

            BINGO!          Today saw the L.D.S. film No. 0990094 and in a section at the end of the film if a copy of 100 page book called The History of Ilmington, written by Gardner and Ibbotson in 1974 reprint 1975 Truexpress Oxford. Certain passage from this book will be included in this work.

 

            There is a section on the government of farm land public and private, The authority is the Court Baron with 12 jurors and Robert Beavington and his brother in Law Nathan Pleadon are members of this jury. Also quoted in this book is Thomas above a weaver.

The film indicates that the Beavington Family is resident in Ilmington for the whole 1700's

            On July 27th 1994 at the L.D.S. I viewed a film taken of a book called "The History of Ilmington" by S. M. Gardner and E. M. H. Ibbotson published in 1745 and reprinted in 1975 by Truexpress, Oxford. The family name is mentioned twice in the film and gives a wonderful view of life in the 1700's. I have selected passages from the book that might illustrate how our kin lived. The film number is 0990094.

            Farming operations were governed by the court baron, Records of this have been found only for the second half of the 18th Century. Those for 1756, 1763, 1767, 1769 and 1775 have been examined and they have been collected from Birmingham, Stratford, Warwick and Gloucester.

P.33    Crops other than wheat for which there is evidence from wills and inventories were barkley, peas, beans, vetches and hay. From the Court Baron it seems that mustard was grown. The number of animals allowed for each yard land has already been given, before 1698 this number had been larger, 4 horses, 4 cows, and 40 sheep. Since the pasturing of geese was forbidden in 1769 it would seem that these had been provided for at an earlier date. Though the rules must have been very limiting it seems clear that renting commons for those who wished to keep extra animals was possible, and maybe on a small scale for those without land. Map 3 (on page 34) shows the distribution of arable, meadow and commons of preclosure Ilmington. Not all the land showing ridge and furrow was necessarily arable at this time, though it must have been either before that time or more recently.

 

                        A Furlong - a group of strips all the same length.

                        A Hadeland or Headland - The land needed for the plough team to turn

                                  ploughing had been completed.

                        Butts- The irregular shaped areas at the and of some furlongs.

                        Leys or Lease - Areas of grassland

Chapter VI

P.38 Wills & Inventories

                             of the 17th and 18th Centuries

            Fourteen inventories of the 17th century among wills and inventories at Worcester Record Office have been examined in detail. It is admitted that some of these are very difficult to read,and some inventories have no wills attached. but even where wills are also present they add little to the inventories. The information given in both wills and inventories is varied that they are difficult to compare. But, the comparison, when made, shows such astonishing gaps and differences that it seems worth quoting.

 

1602 Yeoman £368 47 cows 8 horses

1647 Miller £180 ? cows 3 sheep 4 pigs

1647 Yeoman £675 37 cows 11 Horses 105 sheep 109 pigs

1660 Yeoman £204 12 cows 8 horses 60 sheep 4 pigs

 

            The same situation is found in kitchen equipment, and phrases such as "iron stuff" in the kitchen and earthern pots and pans occur. Perhaps wooden equipment was too cheap to mention, though trenchers occur 3 times. Spoons were mentioned only twice, once of pewter and once of silver. the later belonging to a Yeoman of 1694 whose total estate was £25. He had eight silver spoons valued at £1. 14. There was no mention of forks, but neither was there of knives. There was actual mention of spits and their support 4 times, hooks were more frequent. Of cooking ware, kettles, dripping pans, frying pans and unspecified pots and pans were the most common. There was one cullender, two mentions of basons, possetts and porringers. "Barrells" were common, flaggons occured 3 times, tankards once and a mug once. Some may perhaps have been included in small items of pewter. There was one mention of leather bottles. Pewter plates were mentioned only once, but there was numerous cases of pewter dishes, large and small. Candlesticks were of iron, pewter and a few of brass. Occurring only once were a grill iron, chafing dish, "salts" a clock and a looking glass. Two households possessed chamber pots. Furnaces, usually old, were mentioned four times and a churn only once. Though the yeoman of 1602 had "implements pertaining to the dairy" A bill which has been found for the repair of a furnace at a later date suggests that these furnaces were brewing coppers.

 

P. 40 & 41 items of interest.

 

            Twenty Eight wills and inventories of the 1700's have been examined but there are many more to be seen. Their dates lie between 1700 and 1773. The earlier are the more informative. They are so varied that detailed comparison seems almost impossible, but the light they throw on a number of topics makes them of interest.

 

(Editors note: I would like to get my hands on this stuff!)

 

            Two of those are labourers, 1747 and 1773. Both appeared to have owned their cottages and the later one mentions also his garden and orchard. The estate of the earlier one was valued at £4. 15s. and his goods included a spade and stocking axe 3/-, 4 pewter dishes 4/-, a dozen of trenchers and earthernware 1/-, 6 chairs and a grate 4/-, 2 tables and a grain tub 4/-, This labourer had 4 sons and 2 daughters all of whom received a shilling. One daughter however received in addition the cottage and the remainder of all money and goods.

 

            Provision for the womenfolk often occurred even if only in part of the house as in the case of a yeoman who left his daughter £5 a year and 2 rooms in the house.

 

            Other examples of the sharing of a house are found as in the will of 1728 - "that part of my house now in possession of Richard Newland".

 

            In one instance a yeoman of 1706 left to his brother the profits and rents of a house and two yard lands, the land in tenure of John Dunn. He left to his nephew the house where he was living.

 

            Some of the inventories gave the price of animals. No doubt this varied with the age and quality of the animal. In 1724, 68 sheep were valued at £47. 12s. and 14 Cows £38. In 1729 4 horses and 2 colts were valued at £33 and 5 Cows at £20 and 75 sheep and 35 lambs at £37.

 

            A crop of corn on two yard lands in the common fields was valued in the same inventory at £60.

 

 

            In another case where a husband and wife had died within a month of each other the husband being a husbandman, there was an old mare 15/- an old cow 25/-.

 

            Occasionally the proportion of the land under a particular crop is given as for the yeoman with one and a half yard lands (about 60 strips) who had 26 under wheat. This man's land was well stocked with 60 sheep, 4 mares, 2 colts, 4 cows. 3 heifers and 2 calves.

 

            The belongings of an unmarried woman in 1706 were as follows:- "a bed and belongings, 3 pairs of sheets and pillow cases, 3 coffers, 1 trunk, 1 box, 1 warming pan, 2 pewter dishes, a little table, a form, a wheel and wool, a barrel".

 

            A widow in 1756 left to her widowed niece her messuage and tenement with outhouse, backside and orchard, and all the furniture and equipment. However, this was provided that the niece did not marry again, kept all in good repair, and did not cut down trees or apples "except the sap ash" for use on the premises. Further conditions make it clear that the niece was really holding the premises for her son.

 

            The tangle of village relationships emerges from these wills, also the names of some of the craft and tradesmen of the time. Richard Hixon, a tailor, died in 1728. Thomas Bradford wheelwright in 1735. Thomas Newman was a butcher in 1756, William Newman was a joiner who died in 1772 and left money to his nephew, another Thomas Newman was a cabinet maker in Oxford. Thomas Beavington as a weaver at this same date.

(Editors note: When I read the last sentence it was better that winning the lottery - well almost.)

 

 

            An instance of a husband and wife dying within a month of each other has already been given. In another case 4 wills of one family were proved on the same day. Though this does not mean that they died on the same day, it is clear from the appointment of executors that they died within a very short time of each other. This was in 1678, which was not a year in which smallpox was mentioned but was a year with low number of burials. The following year had a higher number.

 

            The inventory of William Howe (gent) of Foxcote who died intestate in 1707 was found. This maybe the William Howe who replaced Arthur Rowney as High Constable of the Kington Hundred in 1685.

(Editors Note: The Kington Hundred is an area of land that had 100 families more or less, and in the Ilmington Case it also included the area of Foxcote. I am not sure if there is a reason but the name KINGTON is a well known Surname in this part of the Cotswolds) The inventory included quantities of parchment, stamped and unstamped, perhaps connected with his duties. His total estate was valued at £60. 14s. 7d.

 

            A second William Howe (gent) of Foxcote died in 1724, presumably his son, He left bequests to his friends Francis Canning of Foxcote and Baptist Hicks of Stretton. His inventory included one pair of gold braclets valued at £3 and this is the only mention of such luxuries to have been found. His total estate was valued at £364. 13s. 6d.

 

 

 

 

 

P.18 Referring to Births and Deaths:

 

            Except for the decades ending in 1657 and 1733, baptisms always exceeded burials. The average excess over the 17th Century is 44.6% and over the 18th Century is 51.5% which may indicate a steady rising population. No explanation for the variation in numbers of baptisms can be offered except for the decade ending in 1657 immediately after the civil war. No reason has been for the increased number of burials 1637 - 1647, although a number of years were cold and stormy and wheat reached a very high price in 1647 and 1648. Although the number of burials 1657 - 1667 was not unduly high, 21 of them occurred in 1667 and were probably due to a visitation of plague. The high total for 1677 - 1687 was not due to a large number in any one year but again weather records suggest exceptional; cold, in some places great enough to cause splitting of oak trees. There were also both drought and floods.

 

            The exceptional number of deaths in the decade ending 1733 was due to a large number in 1729 and 1730. Professor Hoskins states that these were years of severe epidemics of influenza. In 1729 Ilmington appears to have had much wetter weather, for in the churchwardens accounts is found the statement "streams more than usual were running through the churchyard and the rector agreed that drainage channels should be dug through his adjacent orchard. The years 1755, 1756, 1757 and 1763 were disasterous years for agriculture and in some places food riots occurred in 1756. Of the diseases smallpox, typhus, typhoid and influenza, said by Professor Hoskins to be the most important time for, only smallpox mentioned by the overseer and deaths from this cause are not marked in the registers. Cases needing isolation occurred in 1762, 1763, 1766, 1774, 1776 and 1778.

 

P.19 Talking about the sale of land.

            In 1698, a sale by the Earl of Essex to Joseph Archer excludes "All those cottages now erected on the waste ground" A dispute conerning the erection of a cottage on the waste is reported in the section on Quarter Sessions. It is believed that these were squatters cottages, and it appears that, the Lords permission was needed, the case later quoted shows that the inhabitants of the village would successfully dispute this. It is of some interest in the much later uncertainty of the Parish Council on the subject of village greens.

 

            The following is just one example of the many, showing alterations in the building and the compulsion to attend the court baron, which 50 years later was to become obsolete at the time of the enclosure. In 1699 Richard Salmon, shoemaker ... sale of two little plots of ground adjoining their houses, reputed to have been part of the Bury Orchard for £10 "1732" all that tenement... lately two tenements ... a lease for 21 years at 5/- a year and suite at court baron.

 

 

P.20    The deeds occasionally throw light on the craftsmen and tradesmen of the community before the days of directories and the census. In the 17th century a mason, a miller, a tailor, a butcher , a weaver and a shoemaker are mentioned . In the 18th century are found mason, tailor, weaver, woolman, carpenter, collarmaker, baker and tanner. These cannot of course be regarded as complete lists, as the survival of deeds is so much a matter of chance. Among the records very few examples of apprenticeship have been found, two are quoted below.

 

            James Hickson of Ilmington to William Walker of Ilmington carpenter, in consideration of £5, allowing Hickson sufficient meat, drink and lodging and other necessities during the term of seven years, wearing apparel and washing excepted. This is dated 1763.

 

            In 1777 is found: Walter Wells of Inkborough to Thomas Newman of Ilmington, butcher for seven years in consideration of 20s. Walter Wells to provide for himself meat, drink, washing and lodging and all other necessaries, during the term. On the back of this is a note:- Seven years board £35. Consideration £1. Total £36.

 

 

            It is usually assumed that the community of this date was reasonably stable. that people remained in their own village or within walking distance , and indeed a number of Surnames reappear in the documents examined over long periods as is shown in the following table. This, of course, meant that a large number of house holders had the same name, which is shown particularly in the Hearth Tax. However, one example of a family, some of whose sons had left the village was found in the will of a Southam in 1729, which mentions one son as an ironmonger in Birmingham and one in London, and the two family studied given later suggest a considerable amount of coming and going between the villages of the district.

 

            Editors Note: The new arrivals into the village in 1700 are the following families: Slater. Samson, Keyte, Ballard, Hobstay, Woodward, Malins, Southam, Batchelor, Wells, Bevington, Underhill, Green, Snow.

Newman, Webb, Hands, Freeman, Hawkins, Crosley, Dumbleton and Handy.

It doesn,t say in the record but we know Pleadon is there also.

 

            The Following were Lords of the Manor in the 1700's. 1700 John Mills, 1702 Nevill Ridley and Richard Young were selling and letting parts of the manor. 1720 Richard was selling and letting parts of the manor 1726 Hon. Robert Shirley. 1739 George Shirley. 1764 Francis Canning Robert Canning.

 

P. 48 Law & Order

 

            The village officers consisted of the constable, overseers of the poor and churchwardens. Behind the church wardens lay the full authority of the Bishop and the Church. The Constable and the Overseers of the 17th and 18th Centuries, before the police force and Poor Law Institutions came into being, had behind them the authority of the Justices of the Peace. As the volumes of Warwick County Records for the years 1636 - 1698 make clear, the work of the Justices was not confined to the Quarter Sessions. They made orders for the relief of poor , ensued that the national and county levies were paid, and in the latter part of the time seem to have been active in ensuring that the Catholic and Protestant dissenters from the established church were "Presented". It is stated with few exceptions they were responsible for appointing the overseers. Ilmington appears to have been one of these exceptions, where they were appointed by the churchwardens. The Justices were also responsible for signing the accounts of the overseers, but here again only the later accounts bear thedir signatures. The Court Leet was responsible for appointing the village Constable, but during the period of the Civil War , these courts were somewhat disorganized, and here agin the Justices exerted their authority. The background of that these volumns fill in especially valuable for such a village as this for which nothing but the account books for a limited period exist, and the records of the court leet are particularly obscure. Among the Commissioners of the Peace (or the Justices) for the county, the only Ilmington names included are Sir Henry Capell, who was also a Privy Councillor, Robert Brent for a short time, and William Howe of Foxcote.

 

 

 

The Court

 

            This was a court held periodically in a Lordship or Manor, before the Lord or his steward, having jurisdiction over petty offences and civil affairs of the district. According to H.S. Bennett in "Life on the English Manor", the court leet and view of frank pledge were originally two quite separate things. In the course of time, the two became associated one with another and the court at one and the same sitting, held both the view and the leet.

 

            Records said to be of the court leet and court baron for Ilmington, combined with other villages and hamlets of the district, for the years 1683 - 1691 exist among the Shirley Papers at Warwick Record Office. The other villages concerned were Foxcote, Quinton, Millcoat, Luddington and Radbrook. Other records of the court leet, only one example of which has been examined are the P.R.O. among the Duchy of Lancaster Court Rolls. The court, the records of which are in the Shirley Papers, met under the auspices of Lord Ferrars, who was not Lord of The manor at Ilmimgton, but it does appear to have met in Ilmington. It appointed the village constable and tythingmen and received the money for the licences of those who sold bread and ale. Though the heading of these documents includes the words court baronm at no time do they set out rules for the use of the land., as do some of the 18th century records of the court baron.

 

 

 

 

A few other matters arising are as follows:-

1683    Nathaniel Rose and William Southerne fined 1/6d for not doing the highway duty for last year, unless done by November.

 

1684    Nathaniel Rose was fined again.

 

1686    The inhabitants of Ilmington "that did not appear this day to do their suit and service" were             presented and fined 6d each.

 

1687    William Rose and his wife were fined 5/- for taking a colt out of the pound and not making             satisfaction for the damage done by the said colt.

 

1689    Again offenders were fined for removing cows and calves from the pound. Richard Sansum has not scoured his ditch at the lower end of his close to the damage of the highway in Meadow Street, and William Rose Junior's ducks had abused the common stream of water running through Ilmington.

 

            The court met with a jury of thirteen, no appointment of a hayward has been seen in the records, but, according to H.S. Bennett the hayward at times did the duties of the village constable. The tythingmen were the men responsible for ten families of the hundred to which the community belonged and attended the hundred court on their behalf. This is now the Kington hundred, but at an earlier date was the Barcheston hundred.

 

 

 

 

 

P. 49   The Village Constable.

 

            The office sens to have been one of some importance. The Constable's accounts 1652, 1737 held at Warwick Record Office include a list of constables from 1651 - 1678 , and here occur names familiar in the 17th and 18th century Ilmington Records. Rose 5 times, Coldicott 3 times, Eden, Southerne and Smith twice, Hurlestone, Archer, Petty and Rowney once. Rowney was constable in 1658 and is commemorated in a farm house with his name, Petty in a piece of land still holding his name.

 

            It is through the constables accounts that the relation of the village to the outside world is see. He was responsible for collecting the levies, the equivalent of modern rates and taxes. They were raised as required and varied from year to year, being used to pay the village contribution to national subsidied, for the repair of bridges, for the equipment of men required to join the militia at Warwick, for the transport of the kings carriages, and for diverse expenses incurred in the general maintenance of order in the village. The levies were made on the holders of the yardlands, including those of Foxcote and Compton Scorpion. Whether the constable was sufficiently literate to write his own accounts is not clear. In one case it is quite clear that he was not, as he pays 4s. at Will Allin's to have them written. The accounts were presented each year to a meeting of certain landowners who signed them, and it is interesting to note that very few of these were unable to sign their names and therefore had to make their mark. The following extracts, some but not all verbatim, will illustrate his many duties.

 

P. 50 Relating to the Accounts of the Village Constable.

 

1651    A levy made for our portion of draft horses employed about the train of artillery being at 6d. the yardland.                                       £2. 14s. 6d.

                        Quarteridge money 2. 3

 

1659    Expended at Warwick when we were called in concerning the militia.

                                           £1. 15s 0d.

1660    Expended at Warwick when we mustered.

                                           £2. 10s. 6d

            2 Pikes 16s. on a musquett 14s.

            A levy made for the charge of the trayne of soldiers when they were called in to Warwick concerning rising at London.

1699    ....forst to carry his Majesties Carriages from Shipston to Alcester.

            2 horses, 2 wagons. £2. 0. 0.

 

            In 1654 a payment of 10s. was required for Wixford bridge. In 1659 payment to Stratford bridge 10s. and Halford bridge 5s. Payments were also made to the house of correction and to the gaol,. presumably when Ilmington inhabitants were in residence there.

 

            Within the Parish, the following payments reflect some of the ordinary life, and some of its excitements.

 

1652    Paid to John Bayliss for the statutes.. Court Leet held in Ilmington - 6s. 8d.

            Write the window tax assessment

 

            On September 9th 1994 the following letter is received from Mrs S.M. Gardner of Ilmington, I am sure she will not object to its publication.

Thomas died 8th December 1796 he died intestate and the only next of kin of Thomas did the paperwork which is written clearly but very difficult to under stand because the inventory is done in Latin. The only obvious item is that the Lord Bishop of Worcester got 200 pounds.

 

            Documents say that John is the only next of kin, so if I read that right the line finishes here.

 

 

Thomas married Mary Hulston in Norton & Lenchwick, Worcestershire, 19 May 1725.

 

The family will always live in Ilmington.

 

ELIZABETH BEAVINGTON Born 22nd December 1739

ELIZABETH BEAVINGTON Born 20th December 1728 died 21st December 1738

JOHN BEAVINGTON Born 8th July 1733 died 4th June 1810

MARY BEAVINGTON Born 1st January 1730 died 22nd June 1755

ROBERT BEAVINGTON 4th December 1726 - died 16th January 1798 aged 72 years old, he is also the Town Clerk of Ilmington,

THOMAS BEAVINGTON Born 20th June 1736

 

            March 21/1994: This is so tragic: The wife Mary died in 1740, soon after her last child. Her husband Thomas does not remarry, but does stay in Ilmington for the rest of his life - so I think Thomas's mother raised the children

 

             Mary his wife died in 1740

 

            April 19th 1994: Well THOMAS the father will go down in History, In the book The History of Ilmington, written by S.A. Gardner & E.M.H. Ibbotson, printed in 1974 and reprinted in 1975 by Truexpress Oxford. to quote the sentence referring to the year 1772, "Thomas Beavington was mentioned as a weaver at the same date.

            William disappears from Ilmington, However I believe he moved to St. Andrews Parish in the City of London, He married Anne Newitt on 10th June 1785 - in Bourton on the Water

            May 5th 1994, Well we found a goldmine in Hannah and Thomas, The Newland family well established in Ilmington.

                                                            (See Newland Tree & Record)

 

Hannah Paxton came from Hidcote and died 31 March 1795, the only problem I haven’t found

her birth yet. But, I would think she was over 70 when she died.

 

            After looking at the film of the Ilmington Church Records, Robert proves to be a very active layman in the church. He is a witness to many marriages.

 1744 RICHARD BEAVINGTON & ALICE (NEE HARWOOD)

RICHARD IS THE SON OF 1719 ROBERT BEAVINGTON AND HANNAH PAXTON

8001

 

 

 

 Richard Beavington of Ilmington married Alice Harwood October 6th 1771 in Mickleton

            The editor has a copy of the wedding licence dated 25th of October 1771, signed by the Vicar of Mickleton, Benja Field. shows Richard to be 24 and Alice to be 23 years old.

                 Editors Note: Richard and Alice the parents have not left a trail, where these two are buried is unknown, Their son John is buried in Ilmington , their son Thomas is buried in Ebrington.

ALICE HARWOOD BURIED IN EBRINGTON IN 1744 - bet its the mother or grandmother!

 

HANNAH BEAVINGTON (BEVINGTON)

            Born in Hidcote, christened 2 Aug 1772 in the Mickleton Church, single line entry in the Baptism record.

WILLIAM BEAVINGTON #9016

Born in Hidcote, christened 9 Jun 1775 in the Mickleton Church, single line entry in the

Baptism record.

*1851* shows that William is 76 years old and staying with his nephew William Bevington & wife Jane

also records William to be a retired farmer of Cleeve - he must use the name Bevington.

            Looks like he married Sarah Bennet, of Tredington 30th March 1819

 

RICHARD BEAVINGTON #9001

            Born in Hidcote, christened 29 Mar 1778 in the Aston Subedge Church (about 3 miles from Mickleton) not viewed the Baptism film record yet, but does show in the L.D.S. record fisch.

            Richard married Edith Mansell of Blockley on 31st October 1806 and he builds a good line for himself.

 

THOMAS BEAVINGTON (BEAVONTON) 9002

 

            Born in Hidcote, Born 26th December 1782, christened 20 Jan 1782 in the Mickleton Church, single line entry in the Baptism record.

 

            Thomas married Elizabeth Jarvis

 

            Colin Jarvis is a descendant of Elizabeth Jarvis - and sends this email:

            How does Gordon connect me to my gggrandmother Elizabeth Beavington (nee Jarvis ) without trawling to find my previous info' sent ?

At age 19 Elizabeth gave birth to my ggrandfather Israel Jarvis at Blockley.

Israel was baptised at Ebrington 22nd April,1810.

Israels wedding certificate shows his father as Richard Howse a miller of Blockley, one of the witnesses at the wedding was Robert Beavington Israels half brother and first child of Thomas and Elizabeth Beavington.

 

 

            Thomas was a witness at a wedding between Robert Tomes (Tombs) and Sarah Kitchen on 11 Oct 1819, his handwriting looks educated but suspect it was written by someone else. Ref Mickleton Marriages Page No. 12 Entry No. 36.

 

            Thomas died November 28th 1858 and was buried in Ebrington Dec 3 1858 aged 75 years - he left a fabulous family line.

 

JOHN BEAVINGTON (b) ?? died Jun 22 1802.

The record states in Ilmington Burials "John son of Richard & Alice Beavington June 22 1802" buried in Ilmington. I guess that is logical because there are none of our family buried in Mickleton that I can find. Ilmington seems to be the resting place.

Record of Thomas & Elizabeth wedding on 13th March 1819 in Brailes

                            

            Elizabeth the wife of Thomas a very hard working woman all her life will be buried in Ebrington April 19th 1871 at the age of 79 - my hat is off to this lady. In 1994 we had the pleasure of visiting Ebrington and seeing the family house #15 in Lord Fortesque holdings, on the left side of the road just down the hill from the pub. I would like to know more about the "Roberts" family of Pudlington Mill.

 

            *ECR* Thomas is a baker at the time of the marriage of his son Robert to Mary Roberts daughter of John Roberts a miller who lived at Pudlicot Mill.

 

            *ECR* The gravestone of Thomas shows his death on November 28th 1858 at the age of 75 years, Elizabeth date of death shows as April 15th 1871 aged 79 years also in the grave are 2 of their infants Catherine and Eliza the tombstone is as follows:-

April 12th 1994

 

            Today viewed 1841 census of Mickleton and what do you know the 2nd family on the census was Thomas and Elizabeth and the entry is as follows:_

     Thos Beavington Age 55 Farm Lab.

     Elizabeth age 50

     Robert age 20

     Alice age 13

     Elizabeth age 9

     William age 7

 

That also means that Elizabeth had William when she was 43 years old, and Thos was 48. Also the record shows this family living in Mickleton - now am I wrong when I said Hidcote above? further checking necessary.

 

April 13th 1994

 

Looked at the film again this morning, now we have more data. the family lived in "Paul's House" which was next to Paul's Tollgate where Richard Smith 55 and his wife 65 were the Toll Collectors. The location must have been close to Mickleton hill or that is the way it reads in the census description of the locality. but certainly in was in the district of Hidcote Bartrim. - wonder if the house is still there.

 

*1851* Thomas is living in Ebrington he is aged 68 years and his wife is 60 years the records show him to be a shepherd at this time. Also living with the family is a 19 year old servant an Ag Lab. named Stephen Blakeman

 

1861 - Thomas must have died because his wife Elizabeth and his son Richard are living together in Ebrington, close to Robert who has made it on a farm, Robert is no doubt helping financially

 

CATHERINE BEAVINGTON The only record we have is the death on 25th April 1819

 

ROBERT BEAVINGTON

 

Born in Hidcote, Born on 4th March Thomas Henry in the Mickleton Church, Page 17 Entry # 130. married Mary Roberts (we don’t know where yet) died 7th Sep 1870. We have a copy of his Last Will & Testament. We are really fortunate we have a lot of data on Robert as a father .

 

                        Robert is buried in Ebrington August 22nd 1869 his achievements are many but alcohol maybe was the cause of his death - refer to the family page for more details

 

MARY BEAVINGTON (BEVINGTON)

 

Born in Hidcote, christened 29 Jan 1826 in the Mickleton Church Page 31 Entry #244.

Because Robert left her nothing in his will I suspect maybe this lady died before Sept 1870

 

                        Mary is buried January 26th 1846 aged 20 in Ebrington *ECR*

HANNAH BEAVINGTON 10,008

Born in Hidcote 30 Dec 1821 and christened 24 Feb 1822 in the Mickleton Church, her date of birth is recorded with her baptismal record Page No. 21 Entry # 161.

 

            In the *1851* census Hannah is living with her brother Robert on his farm in Ebrington.

                                                                  

    In the 1861 Census Hannah bless her heart comes shining through, she is the Cook at the Rectory at Stretton on Fosse, one of about 5 servants. The Rector obviously is responsible for reporting all his "live ins" and in true female style Hannah fudges her birthdate a trifle, she should be 40 at the time of the census but somehow she lost 4 years.

 

            *ECR* Hannah married William Baylis on 23rd October 1861, he is a labourer of Stretton on Fosse and his father is a grocer. Subsequent events will point to Mickleton where William is a farmer and Hannah hosts her niece at the 1891 census time.

 

             *1871* William Baylis head age 69 born in Stratford and his wife Elizabeth age 67 a Midwife born in Mickleton - Perhaps the parents of William Baylis.

 

RICHARD BEAVINGTON 10,007

 

            Married KEZIA WEBB but it was a short marriage she went back to family and he went to the workhouse.

            1824. 4th October Mexico became independent after 300 years of Spanish Rule

            Born in Hidcote on 12 Nov 1823 and christened 16 Apl 1824 in the Mickleton Church, his date of birth is recorded with his baptismal record Page 27 Entry # 210.

 

            In the *1851* Census Richard is living with his Father Thomas and his mother Elizabeth in Ebrington he is unmarried and aged 26 at this time

             The *1861* shows Richard living in Ebrington with his mother, Richard is 37 years old but no apparent wife.

  

            The *1871* shows Richard continuing to live with his mother in Ebrington. Also living at #15 Ebrington Street, is Hannah Wheatcroft who is Richard's sister's daughter who lives close by in Ebrington and Anna N. Beavington aged 9 a niece to Richard - Anna was born in Basingstoke. Now that means that Anna must be the daughter of the 3rd boy in this family namely WILLIAM now we know where to look for William.

             In *1881* Richard does now show in the census. - maybe he died.

            Also his mother Elizabeth does not show.

 

            NOW I KNOW WHERE RICHARD IS IN *1881* AT THE AGE OF 58 HE IS AN INMATE AT THE UNION WORKHOUSE IN SHIPSTON

 

Richard married Kezia in about 1858. But the marriage must have been a failure Kezia lives

with her brother in law for the next 30 years - and her husband isn't with her.

            *1881* Kezia still has the name Beavington

            *1881* Richard is an inmate at the Shipston on Stour workhouse. - likely that is where he died.

            Spring 1997 *1881* censuses records - in the miscellaneous section idicates that Richard is severely mentally handicapped.

 

            Kezia Webb was born about 1808 in Stourton she has a sister Ann who married Edward Rouse.

:          In the 1861 and 1871 censuses she shows in Cherington now we can do some detective work.

 

            In the 1861 census she is with her Brother in Law Edward Rouse and I figured she was just visiting but now in the 1871 census she is still there, but Edward is now gone and just Kezia's sister is there. However the record shows that Kezia is not yet a widow and in fact a labourers wife and is married. also we know that her sister's name is Ann and she of course married Edward Rouse.

 

            1881 Kezia is still in Stourton, with her sister Ann

 

Ebrington Records show that Kezia was married to Richard Beavington in 1856-8

Kezia nee name was Webb.

 

In Whichford tombstones state: Edward Rouse son of John and Mary Rouse of Stourton died November 23rd 1771 aged 15 years

            Mary Rouse wife of John Rouse of Stourton died September 22nd 1804 aged 88 years

            St. Catherines Death records show that Richard died age 71 in 1884 same period as Mary Beavington widow of !820 Robert Beavington Kezia Richard’s wife died 1881 registered December

 

ELIZABETH BEAVINGTON 10,004

 

Born in Ebrington, christened 25 Dec 1830 (Christmas Day) in the Mickleton Church Page No 42 Entry # 210.- When her brother Robert died in Sep 1870 she is alive and the wife of Alfred Wheatcroft, she is 39 years of age. Her marriage 5th October 1854

 

*1851* Elizabeth is living with her brother Robert in Ebrington she is 20 years old, and I suspect she is helping on the farm.

 

*1861* At the time of the census Alfred Wheatcroft is the next door neighbour to Robert and his kids, and I didn't remember the name of Alfred's wife when I looked this morning - so next Tuesday I will check again.

 

*1861* Well Now we know Elizabeth married Alfred Wheatcroft about 1854 and take up residence at the "Summer House" in Ebrington. Alfred Wheatcroft is born in Ditchford in the Parish of Stretton on Fosse Alfred is born in +/- 1828. In 1861 they have 3 children and their names are Thomas, Hannah and Mary Elizabeth I would think a person could guess that. We will look at some later census and see how they make out.

 

                        *ECR* Elizabeth married Alfred Wheatcroft October 5th 1854, Alfred's father is

Edward Rouse Wheatcroft a Relieving Officer at this time.

 

Well Hannah Wheatcroft in *1871* is now a companion to Grandma, "Elizabeth" she is 13 years old.

 

ALICE BEAVINGTON

 

Born in Hidcote, christened 25 Dec 1827 (Christmas Day) in the Mickleton Church Page No. 35 Entry # 276.

            Because her brother Robert left her nothing in his will I suspect she died before 1870 - No she didn’t

*1851* Alice is a servant to Robert Edwards, Edgbaston, Birmingham - but where she goes from there - I dont know

 

WILLIAM BEAVINGTON (BABINGTON) 10,006

 

Born in Ebrington on 30 Sep 1833 and christened 26 Jan 1834 in the Mickleton Church, his date of birth is recorded with his baptismal record Page No. 50 entry #398. The official who did this baptism misspelled his and his parents name so the L.D.S. record shows him under the name BABINGTON.

 

*1871* Well we are on the trail of William, Elizabeth has Anna Beavington a grandniece staying with her and Richard, There are only 3 boys in the family so she must be the daughter of William and because Anna was born in Basingstoke in 1862 - now we know where to look for William.

 

Today May 31st 1994 I find William, all because he sent his daughter to see Grandma in 1871 at the time of the census and the daughter Anna was age 9 was shown as being born in Basingstoke, Hampshire, near Southampton Sure enough in the Basingstoke record 28th February 1863 Anna was baptised.

 

The record also shows that William is a Railway Porter and his wife's name is Mary Ann. Still looking for the marriage details and will look at the 1861 census too.

 

June 7 94 Well William and Mary Ann were not married in Basingstoke - but will keep looking.

 

*1871* Basingstoke, No record of William and kin, but studied this film lots of railway people living in one area of this town. The railway porter is a popular occupation. It maybe till I can read the *1881* before I find this family again.

 

                        William is buried in Ebrington August 27 1869 aged 35 years with the sudden bursting of a blood vessel.

            The following is the death announcement card.

 

IN LOVING MEMORY

OF

ELIZABETH

The dearly loved wife of Alfred Wheatcroft.

(Summer House, Ebrington)

who died

AUGUST 27th 1898

Aged 68 Years

________

 

Her end was piece

 

            *ECR* Alfred married Elizabeth Beavington October 5th 1854 the entry shows that both are of full age - Alfred is a farmer of Ditchford where his father Edward is a releiving Officer.

 

            Summer 1994 - we now have hope of really expanding this family tree with the help of Alfred's descendants.

 

            *MF* Edward Rouse Wheatcroft and his wife Mary Ann are recorded as living at Ditchford., attached to Blockley Parish. Their children where baptised at Stretton but there is no mention of Alfred being baptised . There was Henry, Mary A. & William all about 1818 -24,

 

            Henry married first to Sarah, second to Ester and it looks as if he moved to farm in Stretton Village itself. He is also overseer of the poor from 1857 to about 1871. There is a field in Stretton called wheatcrofts Orchard.

 

            The baptism of Edward and Mary Ann I checked with a friend in Stretton who has register copies as Alfred is missing , they would need checking again as he could have been baptised at Blockley.

            *1851* Alfred shows in the Blockley Census he is 23 years old and has a brother named Henry aged 33 years. His father's name is Edward Rouse-Wheatcroft he is aged 64 and if I remember correctly he is the Chief Returning Officer in the 1841 Census for this area. Edward's wife's name is Mary Ann also 64 years old. Edward and Mary Ann were born in 1828.

 

            *1861* Elizabeth and Alfred are living in "The Summer House" Ebrington next door to her brother Robert. My guess is that they marry in 1855.

 

            *1891* Alfred & Elizabeth both alive aged 65 and 60. In *1861*

 

THOMAS EDWARD WHEATCROFT. aged 5 Born about 1856

            *1881* aged 26 and married - he now gets his own page.

            *1891* age 36 gardener

MARY ELIZABETH WHEATCROFT born 1860 or 1861

1. She married William Jarvis of Ebrington in 1884 and lived in Paxton for a time and then returned to Ebrington . see Appendix for newspaper clipping on her funeral.

*1881* age 20 Unmarried Domestic Servant

The William Jarvis shown is the grandson of my gggrandmother Elizabeth Jarvis's brother William.

 

HANNAH WHEATCROFT aged 3 Born about 1858

             *1881* What happened to Hannah?

             

KATE ELIZA WHEATCROFT in *1871* is 8 - *1881* Age 17 a domestic servant

                        "Under the Oaks" Kate Wheatcroft hired as a pupil teacher in the school in about 1876 she works with Miss Newcombe and Lucy Beavington

 

WILLIAM WHEATCROFT *1891* first we have seen of this chap shows his age as being 22, he is single and a Ag. Lab.

 

            *MF* Extracted from the Evesham Journal of Saturday June 25th 1938

 

            We regret to report the death of William Wheatcroft in his 70th year, the youngest and last surviving son of Alfred Wheatcroft of the "Summer House" in Ebrington. He was an expert in the pruning, budding and grafting of fruit trees for many years he was an active member of the Old Ebrington Cricket Club and a bowler of considerable ability.

 

            *MF* I have some reports of cricket matches of 1886 in which W. Wheatcroft is listed .At my calculation he was only 18 years old, at this point he was last to bat and usually made one or two runs but also caught some of the opposition out.

 

            *MF* From Ebrington Reading Room Minutes October 3rd 1907

            F. Wheatcroft was allowed to be a member FREE on the condition that he looked up and brought the papers from the station.

            *MF* Kelly's directory for 1885 lists Alfred Wheatcroft as a Nurseryman

 

                        *1871* Also staying at the house is a boarder Frederick Southam aged 50 a butcher.

 

                        Editors note: The Father of Alfred Wheatcroft was Edward Rouse Wheatcroft - he was a returning officer for the *1841* census I believe - but then I was running into an Edward Rouse Beavington in Cherington / Stourton - Rouse is a common surname.

 

                        Editors note: *1891* in Blockley John Wheatcroft age 71 a gardener and his

wife Mary Ann 65 born Bourton on the Hill, must be a relative.

*1891* Alice is alive and well but the Census shows her as a daughter to William & Mary Jarvis in Ebrington, but I think they mean grand-daughter - it fits. That would mean that Leah's surname is Jarvis - we can check that out easily enough

            His tombstone in Ebrington Churchyard reads as follows

 

IN MEMORY OF

WILLIAM BEAVINGTON

WHO DIED

22ND AUGUST 1869

AGED 35 YEARS

 

MAN IS BORN TO TROUBLE

            We lose him for many years until his daughter shows up a grandma's house in Ebrington at Census time in 1871, we were able to determine that she was born in Basingstoke, Our search for her parents is almost complete now.

 

            *1861* in Basingstoke, Willm Barrington age 27 is married to Mary aka Mary Ann age 22 years, they live at 225 Ready (Redding maybe?) Road, Basingstoke, he is a Railway Porter.

 

            We now must find the wedding, The birthplace for Mary the wife looks like Marston or Matson, in Gloucestershire.

 

            Trying to put this particular family together has been like a fishing trip now in the summer of 1994 we have the story.

            *ECR* William married Mary Anne Sansom (Now in that name there is a family tree to beat all family trees) May 1st 1858 he is of full age and she 19 years, he is a farmer of Ebrington and William Sansom her father is also a farmer at Ebrington Ed: the possibilities here are fabulous.

            *Ebrington Church Records* William and Mary Ann of Misterton, Somersetshire, a Railway Timekeeper.

            1863 The family now live in Langley Green, Oldbury, near West Bromwich. This is where the son Thomas Henry was born on the 16th November.       In 1863 Williamis a Timekeeper on the Railroad.

Their children

 

MARY ANN ELIZABETH born November 13th 1859 *1861* age 1

                                      In *1871* Mary Beavington aged 12 years is a nurse/domestic servant for Mr. Alfred Coldicott a farmer with 146 acres in Admington. The address is #17 Admington Road, her birth year should be 1859 according to the census. She was born in Ebrington

THE MOST NOTABLE EBRINGTON FAMILY OF

1820 ROBERT BEAVINGTON AND MARY ROBERTS

ROBERT IS THE SON OF 1782 THOMAS BEAVINGTON & ELIZABETH

10,005

 

 

This family has left a fabulous history, Robert was born to Thomas Beavington of Hidcote Bartrim on 4th March 1820 and was the eldest son. He married Mary Roberts born 3rd January 1823 an Ebrington girl from Pudlicote Mill and undertakes the tenancy of a Farm in Ebrington.

Mary died 28th December 1884 in Stratford on Avon.

 

            Ebrington Church Records show that Mary Roberts married Robert Beavington October 23rd 1845. I now have a storehouse of information on this lady thanks to Mrs Margaret Fisher of Charringworth and Ms. Anna Baron of Ampthill, Beds.

 

            In *1851* ANN GREEN 1835 is a servant in the house and she is the daughter of Joseph & Sarah Green of Ebrington. Ann is the eldest daughter in a family of 7 children - so I guess she went out to work, her father was a Waggoner. (later: Sarah Green proves to be the sister of Mary Roberts)

 

            *ECR* show that Mary who moved to Stratford for the last few years of her life will be buried in Ebrington January 2 1885 at the age of 62 again my hat is off to this fine lady who must have suffered unbearable hardship bringing up a family and handling a massive farm and having a husband who liked the bottle. A little further on there are a few pages entitled "The Times and Trials of Mary Beavington"

 

            *1851* The family is resident in Ebrington, and Mary, Roberts wife has her mother staying with them. Her name is Sarah Roberts a widow aged 70 years and was born in Oxhill in Warwickshire. - We don't know too much about the Roberts family but we will later. (Must find this Roberts family I think they are Ebrington people).

 

            *1851* Robert the father is now a Grocer, Baker and farmer and this time he has 176 acres, but that will increase considerably. - I get the idea this guy is a workaholic. - Only later I find he was an alcoholic.

            This beer mug was given by W. Thomas Allard, Maltster, Evesham and presented to Robert Beavington for the best 100 bushels of barley sold to him and grown within 15 miles of the Boro of Evesham. June 29 1864,

Passed on to his son Henry Robert Beavington January 1876 - November 1958

Passed on to his son William James Beavington June 1901 -

Passed on to his son James Henry Beavington July 1944 -

 

 

 

 

His children are as follows:

 

RICHARD ALBERT. BEAVINGTON 11,003 Born 16th October 1863 (BIBLE)

  

             *1871* Now Richard shows in the family group as a 7 year old therefore he was born in 1863. 

*1881* Now we know that Richard's other name is Albert. still living at home with mother Mary

aged 17 and is a "Farmer's" son.

            *1891* Richard Albert has moved with his sisters to Preston on Stour where he is a baker and grocer.

            In 1892 Richard married Elizabeth Ann Paxton. of Atherstone born Whitchurch, Warwickshire

 

THOMAS HENRY BEAVINGTON 11,004 Born 22nd May 1848 (bible) as JOHN HENRY but this is the eldest boy so he was called Thomas after Robert's father - that’s my guess anyway.

 

            February 12th 1865: a letter from William Robert to his brother Thomas Henry, who is at West Buckland School, North Devon.

 

            Liz Lyne ponders! West Buckland School was opened by Lord Fortesque who also had estates in Devon, but why was Thomas Henry sent there.

 

            William writes to say he is glad his brother has young lambs near him - they don't expect any lambs for 3 weeks and have not had a calf yet. He misses his brother and will be happy to have him as a bedfellow in midsummer. He states further that he has not been to school since he left as the children have got the whooping cough.

            *1871* Well what do you know, Thomas got himself a wife named Alice and now living with mother. Alice is 21 years at this time - Where did you find her Thomas? Local girl ? don't think so, also Thomas where have you been for the last 10 years

           *1881* Lots more information now. Thomas married Alice and she comes from Kidlington in Oxfordshire, so should be able to pickup that marriage. she is now a Farm Bailiff's wife (what is the meaning of "Bailiff") - Farm Manager I'm told. Ed.

 

            *1881* Thomas has another name Henry - so we will add that. It looks like he is owning or running the farm now.

 

            *1881* He has started a family so we will give him a page to himself.

 

            *1861* 12 year old Student at Tideport Farm School in Devon.

 

LUCY ANN BEAVINGTON 11,005 Born 4th July 1856 (bible) and died 21st February 1954 in her 98th year.  

            Lucy married Richard Dyer in Mickleton 1st August 1892

 

*1871* Lucy Ann is alive and well, she now is 14 years old.

 

            *1881* Lucy Ann is still living in Ebrington with her mother Mary she shows as being 24 now and unmarried.

 

            The following letter is unsigned, it is dated April 1881 from the College Farm.

            It is from a Thomas Henry Child and by looking at the writing I would guess it being Bertha Mary age about 11 years.

 

My Dearest Aunt Lucy,

            I have just though of what I promised you before I came away. I promised you that I would write to you so I have just done so. I have been to school today I like it very much, our teachers name is Miss Helter she is very nice person. We have got four teachers but the one who teaches me is name Miss Helter, will you please see if my potatoes are coming up they are in the drying ground. I hope you did not make yourself tired cleaning the house it was very kind of Kate Wheatcroft to help you clean the new house. I was so very glad to hear you had got a house. I think poor Grandmama won't like cleaning house but God will make it all right, tell her not to fret, Arthur gave me such a pretty scarf, It is pale pink. Florrie and I have planted some orange pips but they are not come up yet we have got them in the shop. I shall be pleased to have a letter from you it is a long walk to school but it does us good. we start about 10 minutes to nine and we go in at half past nine, everybody takes me to be Katie's Cousin and the children at school think I am Florries sister but they make a great mistake. I heard that Mrs Burrlel's baby has been christened. I wonder if I shall make up my times I hope I shall when you see Mary Ellen Stanley, tell her I shall be very glad to hear from her. Tell Uncle Dick I shall be glad to have a letter from him too. I am writing a long letter to you but I have just thought of a lot to tell you. we have to take our own work to school but they have found me something to do this week. I think I shall take some work this week, Florrie has got over the garden wall, it is a set of quadrilles it is very pretty. Tell uncle Dick I shall want to see the blue room.

  Regrettably the rest of the letter is lost.  

                        *1891* Lucy Ann is a visitor to William Baylis's farm in Mickleton at Census time,             she is 34 years and is an organist. Well that makes sense William Bayliss's wife is the ex Hannah Beavington of Stretton on Fosse fame and Lucy Ann is her niece

 

            The following as submitted by Dr. Frank Beavington BA, PhD. M.Sc. in a letter to Margaret Fisher in Ebrington dated 2nd March 1993.

 

            Lucy Beavington held a teaching post at Ebrington School, also an organist at Ebrington and Alderminster. Lucy kept a meticulous notebook of hymns sung in Ebrington Church from 1874 to 1880, presently in the possession of my cousin Anna Barron the Great Gran-daughter of Lucy..

                        Lucy subsequently married Richard Dyer they had 2 daughters one of these Maud who married back into the Beavington Family - Martin Richard Beavington her first cousin and a grandson of Robert and Mary.

  

SARAH ELIZABETH BEAVINGTON 11,006 . Born 5th December 1858 (BIBLE) at the Manor House in Ebrington.

            The following letter is from Sarah Elizabeth's male cousin so it is a son of John Roberts or Henry Roberts and by deduction it is written to Sarah Elizabeth.

 

            We have the address so perhaps someone can check the Census for 1871 and 1881 for #42, Grafton Street, Cambridge to see who we have here.

 

Letter dated 1877:

 

My Dear Cousin,

 

            I am sorry that I have been so neglectful in writing to you, but I have kept putting it off. Dear Cousin you did not say how your own health was. I hope it has improved. I was very sorry to hear that Tom had been so unwell but I hope he is getting on all right now. I hope that your dear mother's cold is better. I expect she works very hard as usual.

            I must tell you that we are all quite well now. I have been suffering from a very bad cold. Little ? Kate ? was delighted with her present. She is always talking about her grandmother but I don’t suppose she would hardly own her but that don't make any difference we must impute that to her ignorance. I don't think I was ever treated in such a cold manner by a friend let alone a mother. Dear Cousin I was pleased to hear that your harvest was a success and that you got the wheat crop in all right. You must let Dick (aged 14) have a good education nobody can take that away from him. I daresay he is getting quite the young man now. I hope he will be a good boy to his dear mother and sisters. Dear Cousin you must please give my best love to Tom (aged 29) and his dear wife (Alice aged 27) wishing them a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please give my love to Aunt Green (Sarah Green nee Roberts) and her family. I should very much like to see you all but the journey is too much for my wife. I must Conclude with my best love to Lucy (Aged 21), yourself (Sarah Elizabeth aged 19) and dear Mother. Please remember me to Mrs Baldwin (Elizabeth Baldwin would be the writers Aunt) from your affectionate cousin E. ROBERTS

                   Buried in Ebrington Nov 16th 1864 aged 12 years *ECR*

 

            The following letter is sent by Liz Lyne: It is from William Robert sent from Evesham July 9th 1864, and according to my information that is just a few months before his death in November 1864.

                        Your affectionate son,

                                    William Robert Beavington

 

Note: Must have been a very delicate child.

**********

            Lets carry on about this family, The film was not too clear but it would appear he was the tenant of a 346 acre farm which employed 21 labourers and 3 boys.

 

            Robert rents the farm from Lord Fortesque, after Robert's death in 1870 Mary runs the farm with the help of her boys, but crops are bad and prices low and by 1881 she is in rent distress and must sell. See the story The Times and Trials of Mary Beavington.

 

            Robert on his Last Will and Testament leaves £10 to his sister Elizabeth and £10 to his brother Richard and 4 shillings a week to his mother.

 

The *1861* reveals that his mother Elizabeth Beavington and his brother Richard are

living together in Ebrington at this time, Elizabeth being 69 years old and Richard her son is 37 years and a farm labourer. The question is he working for his brother?

            In *1861* living with Robert and Mary are the following people:-

 

     Richard Keeble Apprentice from London age 16 years

     Ann Bachelor Servant age 27 a dairy maid

     Sarah Green age 15 a house girl

     John Green age 19 a groom

     Jacob ---- age 42 a labourer

 

            *1871* Now we can look at this family again. Father Robert died in 1870 so now his wife Mary is a recent widow, She continues with the farm now of 320 acres employing 10 men and 5 women and 4 boys (Editors note: I see we now have female employees!!!) Mary is 48 years old. There is a servant named Dinah Green ( Mary's niece) aged 16 years.

 

            The family now lives in the MANOR HOUSE in Ebrington.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Times and Trials of Mary Beavington nee Roberts ( 1822 - 1884)

The wife of Robert Beavington 1820 - 1870

 

            I have great admiration for this lady, I have set a few pages aside to build a story on her, her parents John Roberts a Miller and his wife who I have recorded as Sarah nee Hobbins come from Pudlicot mill in Ebrington, - data from Frances M. Lane of Salford Priors

 

 

1780 Mary's mother is born in Oxhill her name is Sarah (she was likely a Weston)

 

1822 circa Mary Roberts is born - have not seen the church records yet for an exact date.

 

1823 Letter from Charlton to Lord Fortesque; Poor John Roberts of Pudlicote Mills is dead, he left an excellent character behind him, as a truly honest man, his widow continues the business with the assistance of her eldest son (about 18 yrs) she is likely to do well

 

1844 September 10th: The following letter is received by Mary from Robert Beavington,

Dear Mary,

Having heard you suggest some very doubtful opinions respecting my sincerity I hereby again promise to marry you the very first opportunity that occurs, and I never will slight you on any occasion providing you never give me an occasion and then I will tell you the reason why I do so, but I hope hereby to confirm our love to each other more than ever.

                                                I am Dear Mary

                                                            Yours Most Sincerely,

Ebrington Sept 10th 1844 Robt. Beavington

1846 October 16th Sarah Hannah Mary's first child is buried aged 5 weeks.

 

1847     Elizabeth Roberts daughter of John Roberts a Miller of Puddlicot Mill married John Baldwyn - Elizabeth must have been the sister of Mary. - I guess this is a small town because John Baldwyn will be the executor of Robert Beavington's estate in the year 1870.

 

1847    Ebrington Parish Registers record that both John Baldwyn and his father Thomas Baldwyn were gardeners by trade.

                 

1848 July 16th Mary gives birth to John Henry his name will change to Thomas Henry before 1851

1865 Letter from H. Ford to his Lordship.

            "I have not troubled you with the details of the expenses of the new road and Beavington's new yard because I take it for granted that you knew all about both.

            The cost of the road is about £107, of Beavington's new yard and shed £100 of which he will pay 5 per cent. The drainage necessary in consequence of the fever amounts to £34-6-9.

 

1867, June 29th In a letter to Lord Fortesque Mr C. Randall states in a paragraph

            1st Beavington - and the farmers do talk that I shouldn't like for him to hear it if I consider that it was likely to do him good. But he had one attack of Delerium Tremors and his life is a bad one. It makes in no R------ to his family to make any addition to his holdings.

 Ed Note: Mr Randall was recommending someone to take over the Stanley farm because he couldn't pay the rent and the farm was disgracefully foul. Actually Coldicott got the place

 

1868 20th November This was a busy day for Mary, Robert hosted The Duc and Duchesse d'Aumale, accompanied by numerous and most august cortege met at residence of Mr. Robert Beavington for the purpose of having a days run with the Duc's harriers. The morning was fine and clear. Ebrington Hall is pleasantly situated on a gentle sloping hill, its noble white front forms a fine relief to the woodland and meadow scenery with which it is surrounded. The Duc and party refreshed themselves at Mr. Beavington's residence - Evesham Journal.

 

1868 February 8th Mr Samuel Keyte recently deceased - His furniture etc is auctioned off. His farm Oakham Farm is auctioned off at the "Ebrington Arms" a couple of months later.
