Brody Info Over the course of generations the family name has been spelt as BRODIE, BROADIE, BRODY and BROADY, today we find the original spelling of BRODIE and BROADY throughout Norfolk.  The family tree and history has been carefully researched by a number of people, but we still have a few gaps to fill, but with a little help we may be able to complete the picture.
Cushing Family The remote ancestry of the CUSHING family has been the subject of a number of investigations, which have succeeded in tracing the family to very early times. The first work of importance was undertaken by the Hon. Caleb CUSHING. He traced the family to Norfolk County, England; and finding himself unable to give the necessary time to the research, engaged the late H . G. Somerby of London, a well known genealogist, to continue it. Mr. Somerby entered on the task with enthusiasm, as evidenced by his letters, some of which are in the writer's possession. During the years 1851-1853 he examined the ancient manuscripts in the British Museum, the Subsidy Rolls and Heraldic Visitations for Norfolk, the parish registers and ancient deeds and wills connected with various estates and manors in Hardingham, Hingham, and other places. His efforts were crowned with unexpected success; he established the fact that the CUSHINGs were one of the leading families in Norfolk County during the 15th and 16th centuries, being lords of numerous manors, and he published his results in several important papers before historical and genealogical societies in Great Britain.

The Ripley Family

In1574, William RIPLEY( glover) married Margaret THOMSON at Wramplingham,Norfolk.  The glover appears as a "selected person" (what does it exactly means?) in a 1577 muster roll of Wramplingham,hundred or Forehoe.  He also left a will dated Aug 31,1619, and was buried in Wymondham Jan 28,1620.  His son William RIPLEY was living with him in the same house in Wymondham, where his 4 children where baptized between 1621 and 1627.  I did not find a trace of his marriage and do not know the name of his wife, who is probably the one who accompanied him and the 4 children in the voyage to New Hingham, Massachussets in 1638.
