Dave Calladine , from Yeovil, Somerset, UK, has been a Family Tree Circles member since Jan 2006. is researching the following names: CALLADINE, LAUNCHBURY, FULLER and 22 other(s).
I found a family tree with these names and dates. Is this too much of a coensidence? They have Hercules father listed as thomas. I guess they could be wrong since the name is spelled differently. Let me know what you think?

Herculese is the son of "John Lanchbury Chadlington Carpenter", and ths information comes from the will of John Launchbury 1627, "I give to my Sonne Hercules Lanchbury apeare of Carte bridel Eyes"
the family land cna be traced from the will of his grandfather "Richard Lanchepraye of Chadlington in the county of Oxon husband man" in 1570, when he divided it between his three sons - "my goodes to be equallye devided Amongest my iij sonnes that is to saye Willm John and Robert Lanchepraye"
the same land is passed by Herculese wife, mary, in a will of 1654, "Mary Lainchberry of Chadlington in the County of Oxon widow", gives the majority of her land to the eldest sons, with only a small portion to william, who nmes his eldest son, Herculese, and gives him most of the land, but writes him out in 1735 giving it to his grandchild william.
T wills are more accurate than the badly written church records which were transcribed in error by the LDS. Thomas, may be the village priest Thomas Lander?
Thomas may alo be the son of his Grandfather Richards, Brother Robert, thus his 1st cousin onced removed, I will add the 1601 will to these pages, and you can see that he has no children named Herculese, but he does mention his cousin John, Herculese's father, "to John Lanchbery my cousin? 40/-,"
I had a problem with his son living for so many years, which I have resolved today, bu inserting another generation. William 1625 was not the owner of the will relating to my folks, but Esay's (Isaac), son william born 1635. Thus Herculese becomes my G9 grandfather.
