Notes for Richard Thurman

At the time of the preparation of the Doomsday Book (1086) the Thurman
(Thurmond) family owned land in Yorkshire, Essex, SUSSEX, Surrey and
Oxfordshire. Aside from the Doomsday records the earliest recorded member
of the Thurman (Thurmond) family is William in Lincolnshire in 1107.
At Oke Hundred, Littlewittenham, Berkshire, upon a gravestone in the
middle of the chancel, bearing a priest in his habit, engraven on a plate
is this inscription in Latin: "Here lies Dominie John Thurmond, some time
Rector, who died the 9th of May 1433."

Berkshire, Cookham Hundred, Binfield, is a rectory in the deanery of
Reading. In a little chapel is a fair marble with this inscription: "Here
lieth the body of Richard Thurmor and Katherine, his wife, which in this
Parish sometimes were man and wife. But now death hath them ravished.
Their lives past and gon. There Bodyes lye here covered under this marble
ston. The said Rector dyeth the 26th of Oct. 1558, and the said
Katherine dyed 13 day of April 1539." Over the man's head figured in a
long habit is a verse in Latin, as also over the woman's.
