From memory Solomon's window appears in the South Transept
He is recorded in the Knights Visitation of Kent 1619 as son of William Hougham (Note "de" dropped) and as father of Stephen. [2, 3]
He is pictured in stained glass in St Nicholas Church, Ash, but it is not the original. A drawing of the original is in the British Museum as additional MSS no 5479. It should be noted that on his tabard are the arms newly acquired for quartering with the original coat of Hougham, and that he is depicted with spurs signifying that he had received Knighthood. It was so customary for the Knights to qualify for Knighthood that special use of title was seldom used in documents.
His will is in the Archdeaconry Register of Canterbury Vol 13 folio 172. It was proved in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury in 1518. He describes himself in it as Solomon Hougham of Preston (near Ash). He asks to be buried in Preston Church. He leaves stock to the church of Ash to keep an obit once a year on 5 Aug. The will records that he owns the Manor of Weddington in Ash, estates at Ware estates in Nell parish. He names his children as Stephen, Thomas, William, Solomon, Joan.
KGR and Greta Gordon have wife as Agnes but I cannot find any other support for this. RY has wife unknown. RY has another Solomon who died same year as this one, son of another Solomon, son of John (and Joan Blameter)
