    Notes 
    • According to Gillian West's article included in Christopher Huffam's notes, this Mary Hougham is the daughter of Solomon Hougham who had a brother Charles, cousins of Christopher Huffam. The brothers were goldsmiths and Solomon Royes had been Solomon Hougham's apprentice. But as noted in Solomon's notes, the regular use of a middle name Mordaunt in the Royes family favours the data as we have it, since in this instance Mary's grandmother was a Sarah Mordaunt and there is no suuch instance of the name if her father was Solomon Hougham. As per the will of her uncle Charles Mordaunt Hougham she received property in Eastgate, Rochester. It is possibly this that explains Gillian West's error about which Charles Hougham was her uncle and her assumption that she was the daughter of Solomon.

      In marriage registration, described as "of Hackney, London, England"

      She is not mentioned in Solomon's will and yet she and two daughters were with him at the time of the 1841 census (6 June), so we can assume that she died between the census and the date Solomon signed his will - 25 Jun 1842. [2]
