He says that his grandfather Thomas Southam changed the name to Sotham at the whim of Dr. Mavor, whom he understood lived in the area and who thought it a good idea to make the surname an anagram of the Christian name. William's address at the time of writing was: Durrington, Nr. Amesbury, Wilts. He signs Southam." Sotham (Southam), William Wing (I12178)

18 "Entry from the diary of George James Dew: 'April 23: Went my usual Friday's journey. - Early this morning Miss Mary Hore, aged 49 years, departed this life. She had been ailing for some years, but not to require constant medical attendance till the last two or three months; & shortly before death ate her usual breakfast. - She was the daughter of the late William Hore, a Tallow Chandler & Grocer, & for many years jointly with her surviving sister Elizh. Creek Hore kept a ladies' boarding school at Lower Heyford. As I was a scholar in their school many years, & had all the rudiments of education rooted in me while under their charge, I must give a passing notice of the sisters who were my schoolmistresses. By far the greater of my time I was taught by the elder sister, Miss Elizabeth Creek Hore, & not till two or three years before I left was I in "Miss Mary's class" as it was familiarly called. Both of them possessed unswerving firmness of character, amounting almost in some instances to stupidity, but of this trait it may be said to be a characteristic of the whole family. Both are practical Christians, in very word & deed, & neither belong to the Established Church. They always attended the Methodist Chapel, and their scholars with them, but a relative or a pupil accompanies the scholars to the parish church every Sunday morning. The late Mary Hore was I believe a Baptist, having been baptised (or rather re-baptised) when a young woman, but her view of religion must have been very gloomy for in external behaviour she had all the appearance, save of dress, of a nun; & her friends frequently stated that if she belonged to the Roman Catholic Church no doubt she would have become a most austere nun. Of her thorough & a deep knowledge of Theology there can be no doubt, but I believe the gloom which pervaded her religious life may be partly if not entirely attributed to a disease of the liver & heart from which for some years she had suffered. There is no doubt she was a good woman, & the joint care & instruction of these upright women will doubtless be yet felt through many a rising generation. While not faultless, as indeed who is faultless!, their characters are most blameless & their lives irreproachable. - It may also be noted that the deceased taught Music & French in the School. Two brothers - Wm. Hore a farmer at Upper Heyford -- & The Rev: Edmund Hore, near Manchester - are still living. - Cause of death "Disease of Liver & Heart - some years. Dropsy - 1 month".'" Hore, Mary (I16142)
 
19 "From letters of the Court dated 1711-1712 in the Archives of the Port of Rochfort, it appears that Borderlon had left his wife at Le Harvre. In 1719 Dame Magdeleine de Richouf, wife of Jean Baptiste Thomas Borderlon, successfully sued her husband for separation of assets of their community." Bordelon, Jean Baptiste Thomas (I123)
 
20 "George James Dew writes in his diary on 23 April 1875: 'Miss Elizabeth Creek Hore the eldest sister -- a very plain person in appearance -- is very deaf.'" Hore, Elizabeth Creek (I16135)
 
21 "George James Dew, the Lower Heyford diarist writes on 14 June 1865: 'Had a long conversation with Mr. F. Creek on various subjects. He is a learned & excellent man....' and again on 8 January 1867: '-- Mr. F.F. Creek preaches & is in fact dissenter because of the great laxity of the clergy & the want of sound gospel being preached.'" Creek, Francis French (I5270)

23 "Having no children, the couple [Mr. and Mrs. Gerrit Van De Brake] adopted an orphan boy by the name of Tim Van Maanen to raise until his was twenty-one; Mr. and Mrs. Van Maanen having died leaving two boys, Jake and Tim, orphans. A short time after, Mrs. Van De Brake also died, leaving her husband and young protege to face the problem of a home without a mother."

Bricks were such a necessary building material on the prairie. However, Cornelius lost everything. It took many years of the entire family's hard labor to pay back the debts and allow Cornelius by 1920 to once again see a financial future. This, too, was lost.
