Note on Wife: Harriet Amy Cook (1) - shared note

My mother's family were all sturdy conservatives. Her eldest brother, Thomas, changed his name to Pugh, which was his mother's maiden name. One "Pugh of the Hill" was a Welsh archer who had been given a small estate near Presteign in Radnorshire for gallantry at the Battle of Agincourt in 1415. The estate had been passed down for over five hundred years and came into the possession of my uncle Tom, who was not in the least interested in it and sold it. We have the family tree from "Pugh of the Hill" right down to the present time. The coat of arms included a stork, the motto being "Hoc pro labore ferro".
