    3951 XV.-John Huyshe or Huish, of Doniford, aged seven years at his fatherís decease. By inquisitio post mortem, taken at Sowton, 2nd April, 4 Charles I (1629), it appears he died 2nd November, 3 Charles I (1628).

    3952 XV.-John Huyshe or Huish, of Doniford, aged seven years at his fatherís decease. By inquisitio post mortem, taken at Sowton, 2nd April, 4 Charles I (1629), it appears he died 2nd November, 3 Charles I (1628). He married Joan, daughter of JOHN MANNINGE, of Hackland, in Cullompton, Devon, by Dorothy, daughter of Sir John Strangeways,
    of Melbury, Dorset, and Dorothy, daughter of Sir John Thynne, of Longleat, Knt.). She had licence to re-marry from the Court of Wards and Liveries, 30th November, 5 Charles I (1630), a liberty she does not appear to have availed herself of, for administration of the effects of Joan Huish was granted 15th April, 1649, by the P.C.C. to her son, Edward.

    Will of Joane Huish, Widow of North Petherton, Somerset 09 February 1639 PROB 11/179
    NOTE: There is the will of a Joan Huish, of Tuckerton in North Petherton, widow, dated 12th September, 1638; proved 9th February 1638-9 by Henry Bidygood. To be buried at West Monkton. My sister Margaret Bidgegood; my children, Margaret, George, and William; Robert, son of William Huishe; Winifred, daughter of Roger Huishe.
    Will of John Huish, Gentleman of Doniford, Somerset 04 May 1649 PROB 11/208
    XVI.-John Huysh or Huish, aged six years, ten months and twenty sevendays at his fatherís death. He was baptized at St Decumanís, May, 1621. His will is dated 27th November, 1648, and proved 4th
    May, 1649. He makes no mention of either wife or issue; but from a monument at St.Decumanís Church, which is much defaced, it appears probable that he had a wife,Dorothy, who was buried 27th April, 164-.
    NOTE: By his will, dated 27th November, 1648, proved 4th May 1649, by his brother Edward. To be buried in the south aisle of St.Decumanís church. Mentions his brothers William and Lewis, and twenty shillings to his cousin, Ann Lucas, for a ring.

    Edward Huish, of Doniford, Esq., baptized at St. Decumanís, December, 1622; buried at St Cuthbertís, Wells, where his monument, a flat stone in the south aisle, yet remains. He died 16th August, and was buried the 19th, 1669. The arms on the stone are Huysh impaling, a chevron between three mullets pierced.
    NOTE:-The flat stone still exists in the south aisle of St. Cuthbertís, but exceedingly worn and frayed, and it was with the utmost difficulty the following portion of the inscription could be recovered:-
    ďHere resteth the body of Edward Hvish, of Doniford, Esq., who departed this life here at Wells the (16) day of Avgvst, 1669
    . ....................... to live with me.
    and I not good enovgh to dye with thee.
    Behold thy life by me,
    Who sometime was as thov,
    And thov in time shalt be,
    But dvst as I am now.Ē
    Above the inscription is an hour-glass, etc., and faint traces of the shield bearing Huish impaling a chevron between three mullets, or cinquefoils. At the base of the stone another and apparantly later inscription has been cut, but too denuded to be made out. There is a mournful cadence apparent in the inscription and epitaph, which seems to point to the adverse fate then awaiting this, the main stem of Huyshe, not only by the disposal of the family patrimony, but its extinction also on the deaths of his two brothers, William and Lewis, of whom no further particulars are recorded.
    The impalement on the gravestone is similar to that of Sambourne, of Timsbury-argent, a chevron sable, between three mullets gules, pierced or. XVIII.
    William Huish, baptized March, 1623, at St Decumanís.
    According to Mr Palmer, he it was who sold the family estate to the Wyndhams in 1671. But this is certainly a mistake, for, according to the late Mr. Tripp, Lord Egremontís steward, the Wyndham title shows that John was the man who alienated the old paternal property.

    Will of Robert Nicholas, Gentleman of Cannings, Wiltshire 23 December 1670 PROB 11/334
    Mentions Robert Nicholas of Roundway in the Parish of Canning Epiose. Son and heir Robert, daughter Anne, (minors) wife Joane.

    3955 Year: 1679 Age: Forenames: Henry Surname: ST JOHN Place: Lydiard Tregoze County: Wiltshire Country: England Reference: 105657
    Tandragee Castle was owned, in the early 17th C, by Sir Oliver St. John, Viscount Grandison and Baron Tregoz. The castle passed to Lord Grandison's great nephew, Captain Henry St. John (born 1628, murdered 1678), a son of his nephew Sir John St. John, 1st Bt., of Lydiard Tregoz. Captain Henry St. John, of Tandragee, married Catherine St. John, daughter of Cromwell's ally Lord Chief Justice of the Common Pleas Sir Oliver St. John, of Longthorpe. Henry St. John's only son predeceased him and I'm not sure who succeded him in the Tandragee estate.

    While this is more than a little outside the topic era of this group, I can report that Mark Noble's "The Protectorate House of Cromwell" reports, Vol II, p. 29, that Catherine St John indeed married that Henry St John. Noble even quotes from a letter from Oliver St John, the Chief Justice, to Cromwell on the matter.

    Noble concludes his account of this family by saying of Henry that "By Cath. he left Ann, an only child, who married to Anth. Bowyer, of Camberwell in the county of Surrey, esq.".

    In May of that year landowners in Arrnagh, Down and Monaghan raised a force of thirty men and put up the money to pay them 9d. a day for three months to patrol the country. This force kept up a relentless pursuit, and O'Hanlon had a number of officially recorded narrow escapes. As part of this concentrated effort to capture him O'Hanlon's favourite place of retreat, the Glen Woods south of Poyntzpass, were cut down. But in August O'Hanlon was robbing on the other side of the country in Fermanagh. From there he was hunted into Connacht and then lost.
    The following month a crime occurred that increased Redmond O'Hanlon's notoriety though he himself was not personally involved. At least two London newspapers reported the story of how a party of O'Hanlon's men killed Henry St. John, grand nephew of Oliver St. John, Lord Deputy of Ireland from 1616 to 1622. Henry St. John had publicly defied the local tories, denouncing them as 'a pack of insolent bloudy outlaws.' They had 'so riveted themselves in these parts, what by the interest they had among the Natives and some English too, to their shame be it spoken, that they exercise a kind of separate Sovereignty in three of four Counties...' St. John had himself suffered losses at the hands of the outlaws, but he refused to have any dealings with them. On the contrary, he waged an open war against them and paid the price of defiance. In his sermon at St. John's funeral the Reverend Lawrence Power, rector of Tanderagee, urged his listeners to rouse themselves and rid the land of this shameful plague. 'I must make some reflection upon this country too concerning these skulking scoundrels that are the disturbers of the best planted country in the Kingdom, no part of Ireland having so many inhabitants, yet no place so pestered with these vermin.'
