    : Re: Joane Hookes --- Johanna Hookes
    Message: The Pedigree of the Ancient House of Benjamin runs back to the time of William the Conqueror, under him, and among the many Barons of that period was Walter de Lacey (1074). This family, through its descendents has come to be known as the Benjamins, which includes the great family of that name now in America. After Walter de Lacey came Roger in 1095, Ilbert in 1137, and John in 1222. Henry III was then king. It was in this reign that the confederacy of Barons was dissolved and the landed gentry became the leading caste in politics and society. In the reign of Edward III, the de Lacey appears as landed gentry under the name or Beryton of Stoke-Lacey, and a few years later as the Berington of the same place. Tradition says that it was about 1484 that the name Berington became changed to Benjamin and it is now practically certain that John Berington II, the next John after de Lacey of 1222. of the ancient de Lacey stock is the ancestor of the American Benjamin family.

    Frank Everett Benjamin, researching the John and Richard lineage in Engand, found Wills from Lewes, East Sussex, England. These were transcribed from the Old English or Latin and show John Benjamin's father married Joane (Hookes) Benjamin on January 18, 1584. Their children were listed as follows: John (1585), Susan (1586), Thomas (1587), Joane (1589), Gyles (1591), and Richard (1602). John Benjamin, Sr. died on September 4, 1606 and Joane died on May 20, 1619
