    Further BECHER GENEALOGY……………... The following was contributed by BOB ELLIOTT who is a
    descendent of Fane Becher

    REV.HENRY BECHER was ordained in1883 for the curacy of Lislee cum Kilsillagh 1883/1885. He was
    curate at St Johns, Sunderland, 1885/88. curate at Houhgton Le Spring 1888/91 and came to Ireland in
    1891 where he was Rector at Castlehaven 1891/1914. Rector at Ross 1914/26 and Dean of the St Fachtna’s
    Cathedral here in Rosscarberry and Canon of Holy Trinity 1922/26. He died in 1929 and is buried in Ross.

    Additions to BECHER GENEALOGY supplied by Bob ELLIOTT descendent of BECHERS.

    Gravestone Ward 12BB Sunderland cemetery, Ryhope Road Sunderland reads
    “In loving memory of ALFRED GEORGE MILBANKE HUDSON Died March 12 1908 Aged 52. Come unto
    me all ye that are weary and I will give you rest”

    He was married to Amelia Maria Becher, grandchild of ELLEN JERVOIS and HENRY OWEN BECHER. I
    believe that Ellen Jervois was the sister of Elizabeth Jervois of Brade House, daughters of Samuel
    Jervois, and in case of Elizabeth, my 3rd great grandmother. Correct me if I am wrong.










    BEECHER/BECHER NOTES.



    Elizabeth Beecher/Becher. Born 1637. Elizabeth married Captain Horatio Townsend. son of Colonel
    Townsend.

    The story goes that Horatio landed on Sherkin, and on his way to visit the Beechers/Bechers, he saw
    Mrs Beecher combing the long hair of her daughter, Elizabeth.. It was a case of love at first sight. He
    was only the 4th son and his suit was not welcomed. Finally he married Elizabeth. He died of fever on
    his ship “Lynn”, not long after. leaving his wife and one daughter. Elizabeth eventually became the
    3rd wife of Bishop Dive Downes. Elizabeth was daughter of Thomas Beecher/Becher md to Elizabeth
    Turner.,and niece to my 7xtimes great grandmother Susana Beecher/Becher. She was also sister to
    another Susana Beecher who married Samuel Jervois, another relative..

    I have, also, a history of much interest of the BEECHERS (BECHERS) located for many years at CASTLE
    MARTYRS (CASTLE MAHON) in South west part of Ireland, occupying 3 large estates of which CASTLE
    MARTYRS(CASTLE MAHON) is the largest. Miss O’Neill, contemporary with Edmund Keene and Mrs
    Siddons was on London Stage then, under management of Kendalls. In 1819 she was married to SIR
    WILLIAM BEECHER, an Irish member of Parliament. Sir HENRY WRIXON BECHER, BARONET, now
    occupies the estate, having two hundred tenants and much more of like history and biography, much of
    which is new and of interest to you. No published “BEECHER GENEALOGY” exists so far as I know.

    PHANE BEECHER.. Sources I.G.I History of Bandon and C.LD.S.



    There are many descendents of PHANE BEECHER today. A comprehensive ged. Com. is available on
    World Connect. In my case he would be approx. 9th great grandfather. Both my great grandfather
    RICHARD HENRY RADLEYand his wife ELIZABETH JANE ARMSTRONG RADLEY are, each in their own
    right, his great grand children.ELIZABETH JANE was granddaughter of REV.GEORGE ARMSTRONG,
    Chancellor of CORK College. The Anglo/Irish relationships are very complicated. For instance, SUSANNA
    BEECHER, my 7th Great Grandmother, was married to WILLIAM FIELD, Mayor of Cork, about 1676 She
    was sister of THOMAS BEECHER, of SHERKIN, who was also my 7th Great Grandfather through another
    line, and his daughter (another Susanna, my 6th Gt.Gm ) was married to SAMUEL JERVOIS, of BRADE
    HOUSE, LEAP,CORK. So I have 3 Great grandparents in one family! Makes you wonder. One of William
    Field and Joanna Beecher’s daughters, Alice Beecher Field also married another one of my relatives.
    THOMAS CROOKE. See Crooke/Ronayne page.Elizabeth Beecher was daughter of Thomas and Niece of
    first Susanna and sister of 2nd Susanna The second Susanna(md to Samuel Jervois my gt gfr) was at first
    married to Thom. Hungerford, so we are aso related to, through issue, the HUNGERFORDS (and just
    about everyone else in Cork!!).



    Fane BEECHER married SUSAN D’ABRIDGECOURT about 1572 and had eight children. One of his
    children HENRY married MARY, daughter of REV.WM.LYON, BISHOP OF CORK,CLOYNE AND ROSS. They
    held CASTLEMAHON. Apptd LORD PRESIDENT OF MUNSTER in 1604. His son HENRY, married MISS
    ELIZABETH NOTTES of AUGHADOWN. Two of their children were THOMAS md to ELIZABETH TURNER
    and SUSANNA married to WILLIAM FIELD. Both 7th gt grandparents through different lines. The daughter
    of Thomas was also a Susanna(7 gt gma) md Samuel Jervois 1719.

    It would appear from this chart that Alice Field and Joana Field were both my great grandmothers
    through different lines and that Crookes were cousins of Baldwins through these marriages and that
    William of Dereen and Eliz Hawes Crosse were 2nd cousins. And all are PHANE BEECHER ‘s direct
    descendents. The same situation applies in JERVOIS line. I have a great gdtr and gt gt gdtr of PHANE
    BEECHER both of whom are my gt grandmothers through different lines. Also Col.THOMAS BEECHER of
    SHERKIN and ELIZABETH TURNER are my 8(?)x great grandparents . The Anglo/Irish society seemed to
    be a very close knit community.




    STRATHFIELDSAYE HAMPSHIRE


    In 1572 PHANE BEECHER married SUSAN D’ABRIDGECOURT, youngest daughter of GEORGE
    D’ABRIDGECOURT of STRATHFIELDSAYE, HAMPS. (Seventh in descent from Sir SANCHET
    D’ABRIDGECOURT . founder K.G ).


    Susan was sister of SIR THOMAS D’ABRIDGECOURT, who married MARGARET

    BEECHER (sister of PHANE) Source BURKES IRISH FAMILY RECORDS.


    THE D’ABRIDGECOURT ARMS comprise Ermine, 3 bars,gules cut off at end.& the names Delamare and
    Penris.

    ALICE, wife of ELLIS DE BOELES is called the heiress of STRATHFIELD. She married 2ndly ROBERT DE
    SAY. The land of Robert De Say is mentioned in charter of 1227. He was succeeded by WILLIAM DE SAY
    and name changed to STRATHFIELDSAYE. Before 1370 estate had passed into D’ABRIDGECOURT family
    by marriage to ELIZABETH SAY (died 1404) to NICHOLAS DABRIDGECOURT, who passed it on to JOHN
    DABRIDGECOURT who married AGNES dtr of William BECKINGHAM.. Source Brit.Hist.online.

    SAY …. A branch of family of AVENAL. They were Lords of SAIC near ARGENTAN and used the names
    SAY and PIGOT. They had land in many counties and frequently affixed their name to their possessions
    as at STRATHFIELD SAYE, HANTS., HAMMERSAYE now HAMSEY in SUSSEX. SELE and SAYE are thought
    by some to be the same family.


    PICOT DE SAY…… Source THE CONQUERERS and HIS COMPANIONS by J.R.PLANCHE.

    The name of SAY is most prominent in Anglo/Saxon History. ENGUERRAND DE SAY was a warrior in the
    reign of STEPHEN. WILLIAM DE SAY, born 1100. by his marriage to BEATRICE ( whose Father was
    WILLIAM DE MANDEVILLE, Mother MARGARET DE RIO) sister of GEOFFREY DE MANDEVILLE increased
    wealth of both families.

    The Says of Strathfieldsaye might have some connection to Picot De Saye. Perhaps a branch of that
    family.

    .......... In DAUNT papers, the source for identification of MARTHA TURNER, who married GEORGE DAUNT,
    was Philimore Indexes to Irish Wills., stating MAJOR HENRY TURNER,BANDON BRIDGE, Probate 1653, was
    Martha's father. Martha was one of Henry's and Dorothy Turner's daughters and sister to my 6th great

    enrolment certificates, and although he lost 774 pounds and 500 pounds by reason of rebellion, yet so
    obnoxious he was to Government of Charles II they never gave him a foot of land nor paid him arrears of
    pay. I think it likely this Henry was father of Sgt Major Henry Turner who married Dorothy Boyle in 1647.
    Henry Turner jr. Was born 1620, so Major Henry Turner Provost 1627 must have been his father.. Mother of
