BLG1858 reports that this family "originally came from the town of Dunkirke, in Flanders" and suggests that the purchaser of the estate of Provender (in 1633) was James, father of Sir William. BLG1858 then jumps from Sir William to Mary, dau/coheir of William Western Hugessen (by Thomasine Honywood), identifying her as 5th in descent from Sir William. BHO ('The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent', vol 6, 'Parishes: Norton') indicates that there was (at least) one additional generation, with the father of William, being son of the following James, but does not provide the number of generations indicated by BLG1858. CountyGen (Kent), which spells the family name as Hugesen, provides the connection from the 1st James to John (dvp). We presume to show the following.
