Scuthions or banners according to the use and Custome of Heraldry hanging over mee.' The “ marble stone ” of Francis Pincke, as well as most other monuments, have long since disappeared from Winslade Church.

Note 8. References in Wills indicate earlier marriage connections between Pincke and Wither. Joane, daughter of John Love of Basing and Margaret Pincke (? sister of the first Henry Pincke of Kempshott), married John Wither of Manydown (ob. 1620), the uncle of Gilbert Wither, the grandfather of Anne Pincke née Wither. Another connection was formed by the marriage of Henry Pincke's niece Elizabeth Hall with the Rev. Gilbert Wither.

Note 9. Another of the coheiresses of Robert Stocker married John Pincke of North Waltham. The Will of “Robert Stocker of Illesfield, co. Southampton, Gent.," was proved at Winchester 19 January 1670-1. He appears to have been twice married, and left six daughters, viz. 1, Elizabeth, married to Rev. Williarn Cobden of Illesfield or Ellesfield ; 2, Jane, wife of Thomas Pincke of Kempshott; 3, Amy, married to John Pincke of North Waltham ; 4, Rebecca, married to Nathaniel Cranford ; 5, Mary, married to William Molgar of Sherfield-upon-Loddon ; 6, Anne, wife of William Molins of Sherfield Court, Hants.

Note 10. The Rev. Henry Pincke thus married his cousin. Nathaniel Cranford by his wife Rebecca, da. and coheir to Robert Stocker, had a son Nathaniel (named in the Will of Anne Stocker, widow of Robert, as being 16 years old in 1676), and Rebecca, wife of Rev. Henry Pincke. There would seem also to have been a second daughter who also married a cousin, the Rev. William Cobden (eldest son of William Cobden of Illesfield and Elizabeth Stocker), both Henry Pincke and William Cobden styling one another in their Wills “brother-in-law."

Note 11. The inscription in South Damerham Church reads thus :-“H.S.E. Henricus Pincke, Vicarius de Damerham, Aust., obijt 4° die Novembris, ætat 54, Anno D'ni 1723.” Over the inscription are the Arms of Pincke impaling Cranford, the latter being two lions passant crowned (tinctures not apparent).

Note 12. There are monumental inscriptions to Henry Pincke both at South Damerham, Wilts, and Winslade, Hants.

Note 13. The Haskers were located at Bramley for many generations. Numerous entries of them appear in the Bramley Parish Register.

Note 14. The Lees of Woolley Firs, Maidenhead, Berks, have been seated there for more than two centuries. They traditionally descend, with every appearance of probability, from a branch of the Lees of Querendon, Earls of Lichfield, and bear similar Arms.

Note 15. Mr. and Mrs. John Lee sold the manor of Kempshott to Philip Dehany of Farleigh Wallop, Esq., who pulled down the old manor house and built a large brick mansion in its stead. By Mr. Dehany this was sold in 1787 to James Morley, Esq., an East Indian Merchant, whose wife died there in the same year, and was buried in Winchester Cathedral. Mr. Morley sold the manor in 1788 to J. C. Crook, Esq., of Stratton, in whose tenancy the Prince Regent made use of Kempshott as a hunting box, and in 1795 kept his honeymoon there. In 1832 Edward Walter Blunt, Esq., purchased the estate, and quite transformed the appearance of the house by alterations of an Italian character. From Mr. Blunt Kempshott was purchased by the late Sir Nelson Rycroft, Bart., and is now the seat of the present Baronet. The late Sir Nelson Rycroft made extensive additions to the house, and in 1875 found a slab (evidently a remnant of the original house) in the foundations of the present mansion, bearing the Pincke Arms. This he caused to be placed over one of the entrances to the building. (See ‘Notes and Queries,' 5th Series, iii., 187.)
