RICHARD TRATTMAN, Great VIII Grandfather of Richard Barton

Son of Nicholas Trattman and either Susannah (nee Longden) or Jane {?}

Husband of Margaret Hurne

Father of Nicholas Trotman

Also Father of Samuel 

Also Husband of Martha Wimboll

Also Father of Nicholas, Thomas and Katherine

Richard Trattman was probably born before 1605. His father was definitely Nicholas Trattman I but there is a burial of Jane, the wife of Nicholas Tratman, at Hawkesbury on 4th December 1604 and this could be his mother. The family genealogist, F.H.Trotman, wrote in 1983, ‘I cannot place Jane Trotman, wife of Nicholas Trotman, buried 4 Dec 1604’.However, there is no other reason to question his mother being Susanna Longden. Richard is mentioned in the will of his Grandfather, Father and Mother.

Richard married Martha Wymboll, the sister of Margaret who was later to marry his brother Thomas Trattman. Martha and Margaret were daughters of Matthew and Mary Wimbole, Yeoman of Hawkesbury. The wedding took place at Hawkesbury on 8th June 1626 and Richard and Martha Trattman had three children. Nicholas was the eldest and he was baptised on 6th May 1627 and was possibly buried on 2nd November 1639 both at Hawkesbury. He must have died before 1642. Martha died and was buried at Hawkesbury on 31st December 1650. In 1642 her father, Matthew Wimbole made his will and left her a legacy and also Martha’s two children – Thomas and Kathryn (??). By this time the elder child, Nicholas, had died.

Richard Trattman then married Margaret Hurne at Hawkesbury on 29th September 1653 and had at least two more children. The elder child was Nicholas who was baptised on 8th March 1657/8 and the younger was Samuel who was baptised on 20th November 1662.

A Margaret Herne, daughter of Nathaniel Hurne or Hieron, was baptised at Alderley on January 11th 1628.

It is very likely that their mother, Margaret remarried as there is a wedding recorded at Hawkesbury for Nicholas Horwood and Margaret Tratman on 5th July 1675. The poor law rates may also support this as well as a Richard Trattman was paying Poor Rate from 1644 until 1673: 3-4d in 1644, 2-0d in 1644, 2-8d in 1645, 8-0d in 1673. Widow Trotman was paying 8-0d in 1674, Nicholas Horwood was paying 9-0d in 1675 and 12-0d in 1677.

This evidence would indicate that Richard Trattman probably died in 1673 and he may well have been a clothier like his brother, Thomas, who was active in the Kilcot and Tresham valleys. His brother Edward had been left a broad loom by their father.


MARGARET HORWOOD, Great VIII Grandmother of Richard Barton

Married Richard Trattman

Mother of Nicholas Trotman

Also Mother of Samuel

 

Also Wife of Nicholas Horwood

Margaret Hurne married Richard Trattman, a widower, at Hawkesbury on 29th September 1653 and had at least two children. The elder child was Nicholas who was baptised on 8th March 1657/8 and the younger was Samuel who was baptised on 20th November 1662.

A Margaret Herne, daughter of Nathaniel Hurne or Hieron, was baptised at Alderley on January 11th 1628.

Nathaniel Herne was buried on 16th May 1669 at Wotton-under-Edge and Elizabeth, wife of Nathaniel Hieron of Wotton, was buried at Alderley on 16th January 1655.

Their children included the following who were baptised:

Margaret (or Hieron), 11th January 1629, Alderley

Elizabeth (or Hieron), 13th December 1630, Alderley

Mary, 6th April 1640, Wotton-under-Edge

Nathaniel (or Hieron), 25th March 1643, Alderley, son of Nathaniel of Wotton

 It is very likely that Margaret remarried as there is a wedding recorded at Hawkesbury for Nicholas Horwood and Margaret Tratman on 5th July 1675. The poor law rates may also support this as well as a Richard Trattman was paying Poor Rate from 1644 until 1673: 3-4d in 1644, 2-0d in 1644, 2-8d in 1645, 8-0d in 1673. Widow Trotman was paying 8-0d in 1674, Nicholas Horwood was paying 9-0d in 1675 and 12-0d in 1677.

A Nicholas Horwood was buried on 18th December 1691 and a Margaret Horwood, almswoman, was buried on 28th August 1700 both at Hawkesbury.

 


NICHOLAS TROTMAN II, Great VII Grandfather of Richard Barton

Son of Richard Trotman and Margaret (nee Hurne)

Husband of Susannah Long

Father of Nicholas Trotman III

Also Father of Richard, Nicholas, Mary, Giles and John

Nicholas Trotman II was almost certainly the son of Richard and Margaret Trattman of Hawkesbury. He was baptised on 8th March 1657/8 at Hawkesbury. (There is a slim possibility that he was the son of Richard’s nephew Henry Trattman who married Alice Longden and had a son Nicholas who was baptised at Hawkesbury on 9th November 1658.)

Nicholas Trotman II was a Yeoman of Hawkesbury and he married Susanna(h) Long at Horton on 27th December 1680. Their eldest son, Richard, was baptised at Horton on 22nd October 1681. They had at least six further children who were baptised at Hawkesbury between 1683 and 1694/5. Their elder child Nicholas, born in 1683 died before 1687.

Nicholas Trotman II was buried at Hawkesbury on 4th August 1728 and administration was granted to his son, Nicholas, at Gloucester in 1729. Susanna was buried at Horton on 29th May 1731.

 

F.H. Trotman wrote on the 30th June 1983:

‘We now come to the problem of Nicholas who married Susanna Long at Horton on 27th Dec 1680. Had it not been for the fact that Henry had a son Nicholas baptised 9th November 1658, I would have said you had definitely proved that Nicholas who married Susanna Long was the son of Richard by his second wife Margaret. I do however feel certain that he was this Nicholas and not Henry’s son because as you point out it is very significant that Nicholas and Susanna had sons named Richard and Samuel. As there is no further record of Henry’s son, it seems likely that he died young, did not marry or moved elsewhere. I feel now that I can rewrite the Hawkesbury tree including the new information you have given me and more importantly combine the two trees by adding Nicholas who married Susanna and all his descendents as Richard’s son. I will be glad to have your comments on this.’
