    1. [PEPPER-UK] Thomas Peppers and Jane Gardiner - can anyone help with finding in Ireland?
    2. Ross Wilton
    3. I am looking for the UK roots of Thomas Peppers c 1798-1847. He was believed to be military shipping out of Dublin in 1819 but coming from Londonderry. He married a Jane Gardiner (or Gardner who may have originally been Annie Jane and lived until 1893) coming to Canada about 1819. I have just found the Pepper name and Gardner/Gardiner names in an index of Scots-Irish for a new book on the Plantation of Londonderry by Bob Forrest. It is part 2 in a series on Scots-Irish origins and can be found on the website http://www.ulsterheritage.com/forrest/londonderry.htm. Does anyone know anything about this? I need to find a birth certificate for them or a marriage Certificate. We have information for 1819 on in Canada but nothing before then. Thank you, Marie Wilton (DykemanJohnstonPeppers) mwilton@bellaliant.net

    1. Re: [PEPPER-UK] William PEPPER
    2. Hi Richard, Further to: "It seems as if William PEPPER must have died before Oct 1801 with the marriage of his daughter Mary as John HART had to be guardian"... William PEPPER, butcher, father of Elizabeth, Ann, etc., was baptized 1745, either at Hythe or Folkestone. He died 24 March 1801. He was living in Folkestone when he made a will (11 Dec 1800) and codicil (24 Mar 1801). William was married twice, to Elizabeth KENNY in 1767 and to Elizabeth MAJOR in 1769 (fourteen months after the first Elizabeth died). William?s daughter from his first marriage was Ann (1768-1768); if you look solely at the dates, it?s possible that Ann?s mother died as a result of childbirth, and the baby didn?t last more than six months after that. William?s children by his second wife were William (1771), Mary (1773), Elizabeth (1774, Mrs. John HART), Mary (1776-1776), Ann (1777, Mrs. Francis ANDREWS), William (1779), Mary (1780, Mrs. William PIDDLESDEN), Rebecca (1781-1787), Sarah (1783, Mr. Henry ANDREWS), Harriet (1784, Mrs. John BATEMAN), and John Major (1786). This is not my direct line ? my mother is descended through William?s older brother John (1741-1830). Their parents were Mary (nee COATES) and William PEPPER of Saltwood and Folkestone. Obviously, your interest is in the WHEELER family ? and our information disagrees as to the husband of Harriet, daughter of Wm/Elizabeth. You show her marrying May 1804 to James WHEELER, whereas my tree has her marrying, in January 1805, a surgeon by the name of John BATEMAN. I believe she died in October of 1805; there were no children, and John subsequently married Sarah BENNETT. Perhaps we can compare our sources off-list? Regards, Lesley Kanata, Ontario, Canada

    1. [PEPPER-UK] William Pepper 1787 Rickmansworth
    2. Emilie Bubin Green
    3. I have been researching my mother's Pepper ancestry and it has lead to one William Pepper born in 1787 in Rickmansworth Hertfordshire, son of William & Lavina Pepper. William moved to london where he married Ann jones & has numerous descendants. There was also a son James born about 1784 and baptized in Rickmansworth about whom i know nothing. I found the marriage of a William Pepper & Levina Dickens in Long Sutton, Lincolnshire on 16 June 1780 on FamilySearch.org. Most likely these were the parents of William & James and moved from Lincolnshire to Rickmansworth. Does anyone have additional information on this family?

    2. Marian Aelick
    3. Susan Pepper bc 1826 England married William or Walter Wilkinson b. 1831 -maybe Lincolnshire, England and had a son William Alfred Pepper Wilkinson who was a railway man. William Alfred married Susan Brown of Stranraer, Wigtownshire, Scotland and lived in Hamiton, Rutherglen before emigrating to Ottawa, Ontario. Hope this sounds familiar to someone.

    3. Hallo from a cold and snowy winter - it's been snowing for 3 days and S. Africa would be a good place to be this week! Although I am in the U.S. now, both sides of my family were from Essex so have loads of relatives, mostly around the Romford area which is an outer suburb slightly north and east of London. I spent many days in the countryside there when I was a youngster. I seldom hear the Pepper name in England other than in our family, and so far, never over here although there be some scattered around the country. If you have any future clues in Essex, feel free to contact me if they are in the southern part of Essex county. Good luck! Frances -------- fvinport@charter.net

    3. Hi Iris: Just was going to close down for the day and saw the Pepper name, so immediately read your e mail. My mother was a Pepper, but her clan were all from Essex, actually a small village east of London called Marks Gate, near Romford. The Peppers lived in Doddinghurst, Essex , which is a few miles from Marks G. since the late l700's and prior to that, in Bobbingworth a mile or so distant. I have spent years researching my Pepper line back to the l600's. I certainly wish we could connect with our Pepper name! Have come to a complete halt for some months as there were two John Pepper's in the late l500's and I can't determine which of the two is our line! Wish people had used a few more given names in those days! Would make life easier for us genealogists! I have never researched anywhere outside of Essex for my Pepper's so they must have been there for centuries. I used to go to Marks Gate a lot when younger as my maternal family lived in that area. It has changed so much now as the local authorities ran a road right through the village about l936 or 7 so it isn't like the earlier village. My grandmother's house had a direct hit from German bomb during the war but she was in the garden shelter so wasn't killed. The house was rebuilt after the war so gran very happily moved back. I have several Pepper aunts and uncles and their offspring still around in Essex, although am not in touch with them often now as live in the U.S. and haven't been home for several years. Coincidentally, I found your e mail today - yesterday I were talking about New Zealand with my daughter and said it must be very nice place to live! If you hear of any Peppers in southern part of Essex around Romford area, feel free to give them my e mail address. fvinport@charter.net All the best and be careful walking around.

Whereas John White, John Prior, and John Pepper, of Colchester, were this Day brought to the Bar, by the Serjeant at Arms attending this House, for driving the Cattle of Samuell Quilter from and off the Grounds and Inheritance of the Lord Lucas, a Peer of this Realm, in November, 1668, contrary to the Privilege of Parliament, and uttering scandalous Words against the said Lord Lucas, derogatory to the Honour due to the Peerage of this Kingdom; which was proved upon Oath against them: This House being sensible of the Breach of Privilege, and the Injury done to the Lord Lucas, and Affront to the Peerage of this Kingdom; it is ORDERED, by the Lords Spiritual and Temporal in Parliament assembled, That the said John White, John Pryor, and John Pepper, shall be in the Custody of the Gentleman Usher of the Black Rod, until further Order of this House; and this shall be a sufficient Warrant in that Behalf. From: 'House of Lords Journal Volume 12: 4 November 1669', Journal of the House of Lords: volume 12: 1666-1675, PP. 259-260. Richard Pepper Arden, Lord Alvanley, third son of John Arden of Stockport, was called to the Bar in 1769. While at Lincoln's Inn he occupied chambers on the same staircase as William Pitt, and the friendship that resulted greatly contributed to the success of his career. In 1776 he was made judge of the South Wales circuit, and took silk in 1780. (fn. 32) Three years afterwards he entered Parliament, being returned as member for Newtown (Isle of Wight). In 1782 he became solicitor-general, in 1784 attorney-general, and in 1788 master of the Rolls, when he received the honour of knighthood. In 1801 he was made lord chief justice of the common pleas, and was created Baron Alvanley. He died in 1804, at the age of 59. He is shown as resident at No. 35, Lincoln's Inn Fields in the issues of the ratebooks for 1785 to 1787. His occupation of the house, therefore, would seem to comprise the interval between Kenyon's appointment to the mastership of the Rolls in 1784 and his own in 1788 From: 'Lincoln's Inn Fields: No. 35', Survey of London: volume 3: St Giles-in-the-Fields, pt I: Lincoln's Inn Fields (1912), PP. 39-47.

SIBERTON, alias SIBERSTON, is a manor in the north-east part of this parish, which made likewise part of the barony of Fobert before-mentioned, of which it was held by knight's service. John de Herste held this manor in the 2d year of king John, and in the 20th year of king Edward III. The heirs of another John de Herst held it by the description of lands in Siberston, of the barony of Chilham, by the like service, and the payment of ward to Dover castle; not long after which it appears to have been in the possession of a family who took their surname from it, one of whom, Richard de Siberston, as appeared by an old dateless deed of that time, demised it to John Monins, in whose descendants it continued down to Edward Monins, esq. of Waldershare, whose lands were disgavelled by the act of the 2d and 3d Edward VI. He died possessed of it in the 6th year of that reign, and by his will gave this manor of Seberston, to his second son George Monins, and he sold it to Thomas Pepper, jurat of Dover, who dying in the 17th year of queen Elizabeth gave it to Thomas, son of Richard Pepper, and he in king James I.'s reign alienated it to Moulton, of Redriff, in whose descendants it remained at the time of the restoration of king Charles II. 1660, after which it was alienated, after some intermediate owners, to Mr. Phineas Stringer, of Dover whose son, of the same name, is the present possessor of it. But this manor, by unity of possessionhas for some year since been so blended with that of Hougham, otherwise called the Elmes, above described, that it is now accounted one and the same manor.

At one time messuage supposedly had a more extensive meaning than that comprised in the word house or site, but such distinction, if it ever existed, no longer survives. A capital messuage is the main messuage of an estate, the house in which the owner of the estate normally lives. The word messuage derives from the Anglo-French mesuage (holding), probably a corruption of popular Latin mansio, whence modern French maison (house), from manere (to dwell).
