THE HABHISTORY PAGE

David has all the information on the Habershon roots and will be sending me bits and pieces to put on this page.   Meanwhile, I found this clipping from the Savannah  Evening Post dated September 30th, 1981.

Update from David. 

"The Yorkshire branch of the family is descended from Robert Habergham, of the Lancashire pedigree.  In 1553, first year of the reign of Tudor Queen Mary, in an account of the muster of soldiers in Lancashire, the name Habergham is spelt Haberiam.  In that official document the place written "Haberiam Eaves in the Hundred of Blackburn" had to raise six men of the required four hundred; and spelt Haberiam is the Richard Habergham of the pedigree in Whitaker's "History of the Parish of Whalley," who was then possessor of the Manor, and who died in 1590.  In 1567 in the record entitled "The Visitation of Lancashire", to be seen in the British Museum (in the Harleian Manuscripts, Vol 1468, page 97) "Haberiam Eaves" is appended to the shield of the family described "ar.3 crosses couped sa".  The ninth and tenth letteres of our alphabet having the same significance, Haberjam was the way the Handsworth ancestors of the Habershons spelt and pronounced the word Habergham."
