In the War of 1812 the US Frigate Chesapeake was taken by British in 1813 an eventually turned into a Mill.
Notice the other name on the building. Not too far from here is Winchester Cathedral buiult by the first Norman Bishop Walchelin. Two other Bishops with the name of Wyekham or Wickham were all supposedly my ancestors.
During the War of Independence and the US Civil War my ancestors were split on both sides. In the history of my family the shield of my family had been put aside for that of the Tankervilles ect. Supposedly my ancestors are related to William the conqueror.
