Hi all -
I wonder if anyone has any information about my ancestor?
He was Henry Charles Hiscocks (the family also seem to have used Hiscock and Hiscox) born about 1815 at Frome in Somerset. He was a royal servant at Buckingham Palace. Family tradition has it that he was "a descendant of Baron Delamere of Nunney Castle, Froome, Somerset" (the castle was built by the Delameres in the fourteenth century).
I've found a few occurrences of Hiscox and Hiscocks at Nunney during the 18th century, but have not been able to connect them to Henry. I have found one possible baptism for him at Frome in 1815 - Henry Charles Hiscox, son of Charles Hiscox and Elizabeth.
Does any of this sound at all familiar?
Many thanks for any help,
