Richard Mattingly - Yeoman of Baughurst - 1688-1769

Richard Mattingly senior whose Will of 1695 records the following: I give to my son, Richard, thirty pounds to be paid to him at he age of one and twenty years by Executrix hereafter named”. It is this ancestor who was briefly living at Kingsclere, before moving to nearby, Baughurst on the marriage to Hannah Tyler in 1708.

His settlement certificate in the Hampshire Archives records this move. Both villages are but a short distance from Tadley where his family came from. Below is a burial record for Sarah Mattingly being buried in the Quakers burial ground in Baughurst. She may well have been their daughter as it is only a small village and they would have been the only family with that name in it.
Richard Mattingly is shown here marrying Hannah Tyler on the 6th January 1708 at St. Michael`s Church  in the nearby town of Basingstoke, even though both bride and bridegroom lived in Baughurst. They had at least six children  according to the surviving Parish Records – Hannah (born in 1718), Elizabeth (Born in 1720), Richard (born in 1710),James (Born in 1712), Thomas (Born in 1709).  T
he family may have been Quakers as their son, James marries Mary in their Chapel and have a child, Sarah, baptised there. Richard senior appears on the list of Voters for the village in 1734 and dies In Baughurst in 1769.
The village today is still very pretty and unspoilt with a village Inn – The Wellington Arms, named after the famous General, whose descendants still own the 7000 acre estate at Stratfield Saye Estate nearby.
