> In the 17th Century there were three generations of St. George heralds, of
different order. First it was Sir Richard St. George (died 1635)
(Clarenceux), then his son Sir Henry St. George (1581-1644) (Garter), and
finally his grandsons (Henry's sons) Sir Thomas St. George (1615-1703)
(Garter), Sir Henry St. George (1624-1715) (Garter) and Sir Richard St.
George (born 1631) (Ulster). I find this noteworthy in itself.
> The family's home was at Hatley Park in Hatley St. George in
Cambridgeshire, where the family lived for centuries. In the local church
here, there shall be a group of 15 shields painted for Sir Henry St. George
the elder in 1627.
> Some of these St. George's are connected to the published "visitations".
Henry St. George, then Richmond herald, was involved in the visitations of
Cambridgeshire in 1619. And I would suppose the family is mentioned in the
visitations of that shire. (There are no example of this visitation in
Norwegian libraries, so I have not consulted this, yet.)
> Can anybody out there give me further informations about this family? My
concern is the couple John Docwra and Ann St. George, allegedly a daughter
of Thomas St. George of Hatley St. George. The couple were parents of Thomas
Docwra of Putteridge in Offley, Cambs. (1519-1602) and Humphrey Docwra
> In a contribution to the "Continental genes" whim, Henry Sutliff says that
a granddaughter of Sir John Hawkwood, the "condottiere", Mathilda
Coggeshall, married John St. George, and their descendant was the above
mentioned Sir Richard St. George, Clarenceux King of Arms.
> As an apropos to another recent exchange of words on this list: according
to Burke (25. ed. - a book that is available in Norwegian libraries) the
first St. George in England, Baldwin, of course was one of the Conquerer's
companions. I suppose that may be due to the contribution of one of the
heralds in this family.
