"He is supposed to be the same Thomas Hoard who was baptised at St. Bride's, London, 1633, who was descended from Alan Horde, Esq., of Ewell and the Middle Temple, who was descended from the ancient family of Hord, of Hord's Park"

================

"In Volume I. of Nichols' Topographer and Genealogist (pp.33-42) I printed a "Pedigree of the Family of Hord of Salop, Oxon, and Surrey," and said it was believed that "the Ewell branch of the Hords was perpetuated to the present day." The grounds for this belief were that the family of Howard or Hoard, whose pedigree follows, bore the ancient arms of the family of Hord, and that for same unknown reason the name was changed to Howard. But there was always a suspicion, indeed a belief, notwithstanding the arms borne, that this was a genuine offshoot of the Effingham branch of the illustrious family of Howard : which seemed borne out by the fact that Thomas Hoard, the Yeoman of the Tents, etc. bore an office which seemed to have some affinity to the duties of Sir Charles Howard, Knt., of the Effingham family, he being Verderer of Windsor Forest, and holding kindred office, and it was known that Charles Hoard or Howard, son of the Yeoman of the Tents, etc., was engaged in an occupation connected with deer and forests.* In addition to this, as three sons of the Yeoman, etc., lived at Guildford and Merrow, where Sir Charles Howard lived for some time, is close to that town, the proximity was suggestive of a connection. But all these fine-spun theories were shattered by a single accidental discovery. Last November, whilst looking at one of the Register Books at Somerset House (Irby), in pursuit of some Kentish wills, in the first page I turned over, my eye caught the name of Hoard in the will of Elizabeth Antill of Ewell. This, in connection with a search often instituted, and as often baffled, excited a lively interest; and, on reading through the will, I found precisely the names of the four sons and the daughter of the Yeoman of the Tents. But of course this was not conclusive. However, I had got a clue, which I followed. I examined the wills of the family of Gunn, and subsequently, turning over the pages of a register book with other objects, most luckily came across a will that I despaired to find, that of John Wood of Carshalton, whose contents elucidated the whole inquiry, and clearly established the descent (though not the precise channel) of the Yeoman of the Tents from the Hords of Ewell, and moreover showed the inaccuracy of the traditionary connection with the Waterman family.

"The wills that establish the descent in question are these:

"- 1. Elizabeth Antill of Ewell, widow (Irby, 1), dated 20 Sept. 1694, and proved 16 Jan. 1694-5, wherein she mentions her nephew Wm. Hoard - her sister Catharine Hoard - her children, Thomas, William, John, Charles, and Catharine Hoard - her brother Thomas Hoard - her mother, still living - Ann and Dorothy Gunn, her brother John's children, to whom she gives a messauge and an acre of land held of the manor of Ewell, and a messuage in Long-Ditton to her niece, Elizabeth Gunn — her nephew, Charles Hoard, "one joyned chest" - her fathter-in-law, James Antill - her nephew, Wm. Hoard, sole ex'or.

"- 2. William Gunn of Ewell, yeo., by his andated will, pr. in the Commissary Court of Surrey 4 March 1672-3, mentions his wife Santa-Maria - his d. Elizabeth [Antill], his daughter Hoard, and his two grandchildren.

"- 3. John Wood of Carshalton made his will 4 Sept. 1661, which was proved 26 Feb. 1661-2; (Land, 30), wherein he desires to be bur. in Carshalton.

"* See an account by the present writer of Sir Charles Howard of Merrow, near Guilford, his offices, parentage, etc., in the 'Genealogist,' vol. v., p."
