Barrett – Blampied – Clarke – Hackett – Howell – Wheatley

These families are the main research branches of Our Family History.  There are hundreds of other last names in the tree too.

There’s also a One-Name Study of the unusual name “Ferberd” and its many variations.  It’s a first name in our family but may be derived from a last name.

Ferberd "Fred" Barrett

Barrett

From Historic Berkshire – in particular the area south west of Oxford, England which was part of Berkshire before the 1973 boundary changes. 

The Barretts of the 17th to 19th centuries were the labouring class, mostly working the fields as agricultural labourers. 

By the 19th Century some had become carpenters and wheelwrights, with several publicans. The 20th and 21st centuries saw a steady improvement in their descendants’ fortunes.

Irene Blampied
Irene Blampied

Blampied

The name Blampied has a very strong Jersey connection, where the name is as common as Smith elsewhere.
 
There is a Canadian link also and was pronounced Blanc Pied in Canadian French which means “White Foot”.
 
The link between the two countries probably comes from Cod Trawling.
Elias Blampied, Alan’s Great Grandfather, was born in Newfoundland in 1851, but it is not known where his father, Joseph was born.

Frank Clarke

Clarke

The Clarkes’ origins are similar to the Barretts’, rooted in the labouring classes, and steadily improving over the centuries.
 
David Clark was one of the first migrants to New Zealand, where he made his mark.
 
No study of the Clarkes of Bagshot can be carried out without referring to the Chapman, Hammond and Hockley families, as their relationships with the Clarkes are a complex web of cross-marriages.  And there are plenty of Postins, Postans, Postens, Postings in the mix too.

Dorothy "Dot" Hackett

Hackett

The Hackett Family from Basford, Nottinghamshire, England were a family with an artistic leaning and extraordinary names.

Cyrus John Hackett and William Henry Hackett were both lithographic artists. The even more extravagantly named Walter Garcia Hackett was not (a lithographic artist.)

Those artistic skills have passed down through the generations

Kathleen "Kath" Howell

Howell

The Howell Family from Potterne, Devizes, Wiltshire, England could potentially have roots in North Wales – Howell is, after all, a Welsh name.

Current research is trying to prove those roots

Wheatley

The fortunes of the Wheatleys follow through from a Cordwainer about 1788 and various labourers, to the 20th Century and an Art Director of C & A.

Linked to the Wheatleys are the Blampieds including a Kings Police Medal Fireman; the Marrisons, amongst them a private detective; and the Galey’s with William Galey who went to America in 1870 and eventually founded a textile company with Charles Lord, called Galey-Lord Inc,.

Also in the pot of family genes are the McGarrells, Mustos and Slemmings – who owned a Removal and Depository firm in the East End of London- and the Sweetings, Hartleys and Quinns.

Ferberd One Name Study

 

We have been trying to find the origin of the name Ferberd for years.  We know how it came in to our family, but we are still trying to trace its source.  This is why we have chosen to create a tree that is dedicated to all Ferberds, regardless of whether they are related to us or each other, or whether it’s Ferberd as a first or last name.

 

The Guild of One-Name Studies focuses entirely on last names and, from an initial contact on their Facebook page, they suggest that most unusual forenames are usually derived from last names.  Recent research of the Berkshire Family History Society’s CD Archives has in fact revealed many last name uses as the timeline shows.
