    3-2. The Englandís Of Chideock Parish
    3-2. The Englandís Of Chideock Parish
    6 October, 1653 - Chidiock, Dorset, England:

    The two constables of Chidiock Manor stood at their accustomed places in the Chidiock Manor court which was held on a pleasant day in autumn, the sixth of October, in the year 1653. One of them, John Hodder, who had no special interest in the proceedings before the court, stifled a yawn, and his eyes glazed over as he daydreamed about more interesting places he had been or adventures he had had.

    The other constable, William Alford (usually called William Alford the Elder to distinguish him from his son) was keenly interested in the proceedings because they would affect both the lives of his children and of him and his wife, Anne. His daughter, Mary, had recently married, and she and her young husband, William England, had no place of their own to live, so they were at present staying with him and Anne and their young daughter, Elizabeth, and their teenaged son, William Alford the Younger, in their small cottage. William had thought he would be able to get his daughter a small cottage formerly occupied by John Effin after Effin had died, but there was some confusion about the deal, and somehow Effin had arranged for John Keech and his sister, Dorothy, to get a lifetime lease on the house. William had petitioned the court on behalf of his daughter and her siblings for possession of the house
