Henry Wrickson 1596

The Henry Pomeroy alias Wrickson breakthrough

6 Jan 2021

Good morning, afternoon, and evening everybody.

I had a wonderful breakthrough day on my Family Tree yesterday. A full day, 8am to 2am, with some breaks in between, but very worthwhile.

Somebody from the Pomeroy Family Association and Guild of One Name Studies told me about Henry Wrickson 1596 being an alias for Henry Pomeroy,

Before that I had a clear path to my 4th great-grandfather and I knew about a couple of more generations.

George Pomeroy
1779–1831
BIRTH ABT. 1779 • Broadwindsor, Dorset, England
DEATH DEC 1831 • Childhay, Broadwinsor, Dorset, England
4th great-grandfather

There remained however a gap between George and the published tree of the Pomeroy’s who came from Normandy.

Henry De La Pomeroy
1416–1481
BIRTH 1416 • Berry Pomeroy, Totnes, Devon, England
DEATH 7 JUL 1481 • Berry Pomeroy, Totnes, Devon, England
16th great-grandfather
Henry goes straight back to 1066 and all that, and that trace was already in by tree.

Back to;

Radulphus DeLaPommeraie
1044–1100
BIRTH 1044 • Saint Sauveur De La Pommeraye, La Manche, Normandy, France
DEATH 1100 • Lidefort, Devonshire, England
28th great-grandfather

Radulphus had a grandson who married a granddaughter of William the Conqueror. This had already brought English royalty into my tree, albeit in a circuitous route via

Roger De Mortimer 3rd Baron Mortimer, 1st Earl of March
1287–1330
BIRTH 25 APR 1287 • Wigmore Castle, Ludlow, Hertfordshire, England
DEATH 29 NOV 1330 • Tyburn, London, England
spouse of wife of 4th cousin 24x removed

and a very questionable and alleged liaison between him and the wife of King Edward II,
Isabella Capet de France
1292–1358
BIRTH 1 JAN 1292/17 MAR 1292 • Castle Rising, Paris, Ile-de-France, France
DEATH 22 AUG 1358 • Hertford Castle, Hertfordshire, England
wife of 4th cousin 24x removed

That liaison allegedly gave rise to issue, a boy, who was raised outside the family. If any of this is true, it might account for Rodger’s place of death, Tyburn.

Back to the Wrickson link. After adding Henry Wrickson 1596 to my tree, but before closing the link between elements of my tree the Ancestry trace to me was the first list below. The second list is after filling the gap and Henry Pomeroy alias Wrickson goes from being, 4th cousin 12x removed of husband of 16th great-grandmother of wife of 2nd cousin 4x removed of husband of 1st cousin 1x removed to 10th great-grandfather. Much simpler and more direct. This also provides a direct line to my 28th Great Grandfather and on to my 30th.
