This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Thanks to a contributor (DCS, 11.03.22) for drawing our attention to the fact that the excellent site 'Genealogics' (by the late Leo van de Pas) has a good record of this family (see here). We will investigate this further in due course.
John Wichingham
1. William Wichingham
  A. Nicholas Wichingham (or Wynchingham of Wynchingham, Norfolk)
  i. Edmond (or Sir Edward) Wichingham or Wynchingham 'of Wood Rising'

Visitation (Alexander) provides the first few generations (to that of Bishop Thomas & Amy), identifying the first Arnold as "Borne in high Germany". Wikipedia ("Thomas Bilson") says of Bishop Thomas that "his parentage was German. He was related to the Duke of Bavaria and William Twisse was his nephew."
Arnold Bilsonn
1. Arnold Bilsonn
  A. Harman Bilsonn
i. Thomas Bilson of Mapledurham (in Buriton, Hampshire), Bishop of Worcester then Winchester (b 1547, d 18.06.1616)
  VCH reports that Mapledurham passed to his son Thomas (b c1592, dsp 1649) and then to his brother Leonard and then to Leonard's son Thomas who m. Susan Legge. However, Visitation (Hampshire, 1686) shows that Leonard, father of the Thomas who m. Susan Legge, was son of Sir William Bilson of Mapledurham (the first mentioned in that Visitation). Furthermore, Wikipedia mentions that Bishop Thomas's son Thomas lived 1579-1630. We presume that VCH made a mistake on the sons of Thomas. The following has yet to be confirmed.
  a. Sir William Bilson of Mapledurham (b c1591, a 1614)
m. Susanna Uvedale (sister of William Uvedale of Wickham)
  (1) Thomas Bilson (b c1612, dsp 1649)
  m. Edith Betsworth (dau/heir of Peter Betsworth of Fining)
  (2) Leonard Bilson of Mapledurham (b c1615, a 1686, 3rd son)
  m. Eleanor Lewis (dau of Sir William Lewis of Borden, Bart)
  (A) Thomas Bilson (b c1658, a 1686)
m. Susanna Legg (dau of Colonel William Legg, sister of George, Lord Dartmouth)

  (B) Lewis Bilson (b c1651, d 20.10.1715)

  b . Sir Thomas Bilson (b 1579, d 1630, lawyer)
  c. Amy Bilson (d before 1655) probably of this generation
  m. Sir Richard Norton, 1st Bart of Rotherfield (b 1582, d before 27.08.1645)

VCH reports that the half-brothers William & James were "members of London's Dutch community". Joanna was half-sister of William. We presume that she was full sister of James (rather than daughter of a 3rd marriage of their father). BP1934 identifies Ann as "dau. of Andrew Boevey, and sister of James and William Boevey, of Flaxley Abbey, co. Gloucester".
Andrew Boeve or Boevey
m1/2. ??
1. William Boeve or Boevey of London & Flaxley (d 1661)
A. Mary Boevey possibly of this generation
  m. Francis Courtenay, younger of Powderham Castle (b c1651, dvp bur 12.05.1699)

  m. Abraham Clarke (d by 1654)
  A. Abraham Clarke of Flaxley (d 1683)
Uncertain of which marriage was ...
4. Ann Boevey
  m. David Bonnell of Isleworth, Middlesex
  BP1934 identifies David as "son of David Bonnell of Norwich, and cousin of the celebrated James Bonnell, accountant-gen. of Ireland".
  A. Mary Bonnell (d 04.1718)
  m. (1667) Thomas Crawley of Lodnon (b 1638, d 03.1714)
