Afternoon Smartypants and dobfarm ;)

Cumb(e)y Hood born 14 Aug 1717 Boston Massachusetts son of Joseph Hood and Rebecca Cumbey.

In American biographies Cumbey was captain of a vessel and lost at sea.

He married twice in Boston Mass, firstly in 1739 to Lettice Begood and secondly Sarah Nolans daughter of a ‘gent’ from Wales.

Hello All

Thank you Claire, I think you are the "Smartypants;D  ;D Absolutely brilliant, for spotting a US Hood - Scarborough, Yorkshire connection, in my Scarborough Muster Roll photo (Reply #88)!

So Cumby Hood sailing in and out of Scarborough, Yorkshire, age 30, 29th September 1747, looks to be "Cumb(e)y Hood born 14 Aug 1717 Boston Massachusetts son of Joseph Hood and Rebecca Cumbey."

Apart from the crew member from Cork, Ireland and Aberdeen, the Master and other Crew are local to Scarborough and Yorkshire


Why couldn't my George Hood, have a rare name like that!! I only tried England, thinking Cumby Hood was Boston, Lincolnshire!!

Please keep digging Claire!

 ----------

Although we had various propositions. Apart from John Hood, we always thought George Hood of Selby, seemed a loner!

Or is this US / Yank HOOD at Scarborough, Yorkshire, just a cruel coincidence, or one that has no proven link back to Yorkshire, England?

Mark
"George HOOD of Selby" Before 1812?

Born about 1785 (Yorkshire per 1841 Census)

Married Sarah RUSSELL at Selby 1815 newspaper - "both of that place".

Buried in the Quaker Burial Ground at Selby as "Not in Membership" in 1845, aged 60 years.

George HOOD of Selby was refused Membership of the Quakers in 1836.

Elected Overseer of the Poor of Selby in 1838.

Had both known (Selby) and unknown (some not stated 1846) property interests.

Possible (but unknown) links to COOK and/or PEARSON names.

By the 1680s, King Charles II (restored 1660 by General George Monck, Col. Hood & Other supporters), had allowed the Quakers to leave Britain and William Penn chartered 13 Ships.

Apparently the 13th and last of William Penn's ships, was the Providence, of Scarborough, Yorkshire.

I'm left wondering if my Hood ancestors had some involvement in this Quaker escape from Scarborough and perhaps some of their descendants who wished it, were favored with "Not in Membership" Quaker Burials.

When I was a boy it was said our Hoods were loyal to the Crown.

King Charles II gave the lands to William Penn (Son of a Vice-Admiral) and Pennsilvania / Pennsylvania got its name from William Penn, a Quaker.

 -----------

William Penn, was a Dutchman

Penn had to settle a dispute with GRUBB in Pennsylvania
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Grubb

Well there's a surname, both sides of the Hood of Selby gap, have both married into the Grubb family, with either a reference to Railton Grubb in a child's name, or descent from Railton Grubb.

You might be interested to know in East Riding Property Registers that some property of Wm Hood at Middleton in 1775 went to surname Railton.

Also some property at Catwick 1793/4 of Richard Hood went to Railton.

There are numerous HOODs in the E.R. Property Indexes, lists acquired. (You can't order a Registration Copy without the reference from the Index).

Scarborough Property must be in the N.R. of Yorkshire Indexes and Registers at Northallerton.

There was also emigration from Hull and Scarborough to Halifax and Fort Cumberland in Nova Scotia, in 1774.

A little paragraph about this in April 1774 and it is no wonder that some didn't leave a Will.

Hello

For anyone with a later 18th Century Navy ancestor in one of the two Royal Hospitals, I came across a David Hood, under a list on the Resolution whose Effects were at the Royal Hospital, Haslar.

There are two lists of names (one for each Royal Hospital), with names of Ships, on the front page of The Caledonian Mercury, 27th October 1792, under ...

Office for Sick and Hurt Seamen.
The Office for Sick and Hurt Seamen, Somerset Place, London.

Referring to those named and those authorised to claim their effects, who lately belonged to His Majesty's Ships, to get in touch with either the Office, or the Steward and Agent at the Royal Hospital, Haslar, near Portsmouth or the Royal Hospital, Plymouth.

Hello All

I don't think there is a cruel coincidence here, regarding Cumby Hood aged 30 / Cumbey Hood born Boston [U.S.] appearing just the once in those 1747 Scarborough Muster Rolls (of those Rolls checked so far).


The 1851 Census for nearby Cloughton, Newlands, has an Aley Hood, Daur, aged 43, born Stainton Dale, Yorkshire, in the Household of John Hood and Jane Hood, Freehold Farmers of 40 acres.

Earlier, on 15th May 1839 Alley Hood was in attendance at the death of William Hood, aged 66 years (born about 1773), dying at Peak Hill, Stainton Dale, Near Scarborough.

 ----------

When looking for Cumbey Hood who should I find in the same US book, published 1912 ...

Rebecca Hood marrying Hugh ALLEY of Lynn, Weaver, in December 1681.

There is a question and answers regarding HOOD American genealogy (attached).

Hello

Following on from the emigration theme, I was interested to learn about the ancestors of Bingham Hutchinson Esq., (not because he was related), whose ancestor William Hutchinson emigrated in 1633 from the neighbourhood of Boston, Lincolnshire and became one of the founders of Boston, America, where the family held various offices until the American Revolution in 1776.

When the American Revolution began Hutchinson's Great Grandfather was Governor of Massachusetts and Hutchinson lost his estates due to fidelity to the Crown.

Some British went to Nova Scotia (New Scotland) and formed a fighting force to return to America.

Some others became US Prisoners of War, or came back to Britain and some possibly back to the same Counties where their ancestors left, or their ancestors descendants now lived, or elsewhere.
