Researcher*2 Mar 2012 On 2 Mar 2012, Geoffrey Barber2 wrote:

I am researching the Nynne family in Sussex and was wondering if you have any information concerning the origins of your George Nynne.

I am related to the Barber alias Nynne family in Rotherfield, Sussex and have researched my line back to 1530 in Rotherfield. My research is on the web at www.nynne.org


The Nynne surname is very rare, particularly in Sussex. My only finds in Sussex have been your George Nynne, my family in Rotherfield, and a small branch in Ticehurst which I feel is related to the Rotherfield families but this is unproven.

I believe the name originates in Great Chart, Kent where there was a Ninne House Manor where reference is made to a John at Nin who was in one of the stained glass windows in the church. The window is no longer in the church. This reference comes from 1798:

     "NINNEHOUSE is a manor, situated on the northern side of the quarry-hill, not far from the river Stour, which was antiently the residence of John at Nin, whose figure, in armour, was with those of other eminent men formerly in the north window of the north chancel of this church; in whose descendants it continued till the reign of Henry VI. when it was alienated to Sharpe; one of whom, William Sharpe, of this place, died possessed of it in 1499, and lies buried in the middle isle of this church, with his five wives, as does his descendant William Sharpe the elder, who died in 1583." (Source: 'Parishes: Great Chart', The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent: Volume 7 (1798), pp. 497-514. URL: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=63438 Date accessed: 02 March 2012.)

My search of online documents in the National Archives has the surname spelt Nynne from the late 1200's to about 1600. It thereafter is spelt Ninn. The name is very rare and I feel that all the Nynne's in Kent and Sussex are related.

I think your George Nynne may be related to my Nynne alias Barbers in Rotherfield and would be interested to learn of any additional information you may have. My 10x great grandfather was George Nynne alias Barber of Rotherfield. He was a churchwarden and has his name on one of the church bells as George Barber 1603, but the churchwardens account book records his name as George Nynne.

Culpepper Connections Note: We had no information to help Geofrrey with his inquiry, but have published it in case someone else can help him.

Birth*18 Oct 1616 Nicholas was born at England on 18 Oct 1616. 
Marriage*1640 He married Alice Field at London, England, in 1640. Nicholas planned to marry the heiress Judith Rivers whom he had known since childhood. Their relationship developed unnoticed by their respective families. When Nicholas was sent to Cambridge they had to endure a painful separation, though they remained in touch by letter. They desired to be united by marriage however, and knowing that Judith's family would not give them their consent, they decided to elope. Their plan was to meet near Lewes, to secretly marry and then remain a while in the Netherlands until the familial animosity died down. Tragically, his beloved's coach was struck by lightning on the way to the rendezvous and she was killed. On learning the fate of his fiancée Nicholas was overcome by intense sorrow.

After his disasterous first attempt to be married, Nicholas finally found love in 1640 at the age of 24, when he married Alice Field. Alice, 15, had just inherited a considerable fortune. They met whilst Culpeper successfully treated her father for gouty arthritis. Using her large dowry he was able to build a house on Red Lion Street, next door to the Red Lion Inn in Spitalfields, now in the East End of London... By his 14th year of marriage to Alice, they had 7 children but only his daughter Mary outlived him.

(Alice afterwards married John Heydon, author of "The Evangelical Guide.")2

Culpeper's health in later years was not good. It is thought that he contracted tuberculosis from the bullet wound to the shoulder during the siege of Reading. The pressure of all his studies and writing, coupled with the ravaging effects of consumption wasting him to a mere skeleton, proved too much. Finally Cupeper died on January 10th 1654 at the age of 38, shortly after completing The English Physitian.2 
Biography* Nicholas Culpeper: English Physician and Astrologer

Nicholas Culpeper (1616-54) is a legendary figure in the field of herbal medicine.

A contemporary of William Harvey he is popularly regarded as the figurehead of alternative medicine, yet most historians of medicine simply refer to him as an uncritical quack and star-gazer.

What is the truth about his life? Nobody has yet told his story and the story is fascinating.

A member of an old noble family he was born fatherless in Surrey, squandered a fortune in Cambridge, and tried to elope with a rich heiress who was killed by lightning. He trained as an apothecary in London, and by producing an unauthorized critical translation of the London Dispensatory he became the enemy of the physicians.

In the Civil War he joined the Parliamentarian forces and was wounded. He fought a duel and was accused of witchcraft.

In 1652 he wrote his famous herbal, The English Physician and before that the first English textbook on midwifery and childcare, The English Midwife. In this first modern biography Culpeper emerges as one of the most significant physicians of the English speaking countries in the 17th century.

Today, the name Culpeper is found around the word in connection with shops selling herbs and spices. There is a chain of such shops in England. Such shops have been reported not just all over the old British Empire, but even in Japan! (The spices banner shown is of an Irish Linen towel purchased in Jamaica circa 1970 as a gift to Royce and Becky Culpepper, who provided the photograph.)3 
Biography A Culpeper Antidote
Bezoar: A supposed antidote against poison.

The bezoar is a hard ball of hair or vegetable fibre that occurs in the stomachs of cud-chewing animals such as goats (though humans get them, too). If you feel like categorising them, a trichobezoar is a hairball, while a phytobezoar is one that contains mostly vegetable fibres.

The word is Persian (pad-zahr, counter-poison or antidote) and the bezoar’s fame as a cure for poison spread westwards from there in medieval times. You swallowed it, or occasionally rubbed it on the infected part. In A Voyage to Abyssinia, written by Father Lobo in the eighteenth century, he says: “I had recourse to bezoar, a sovereign remedy against these poisons, which I always carried about me”. Belief in its near-magical properties was then common.

Old herbals are full of recipes using it, such as this one from Nicholas Culpeper’s Complete Herbal of 1653: “Take of Pearls prepared, Crab’s eyes, red Coral, white Amber Hart’s-horn, oriental Bezoar, of each half an ounce, powder of the black tops of Crab’s claws, the weight of them all, beat them into powder, which may be made into balls with jelly, and the skins which our vipers have cast off, warily dried and kept for use”. Culpeper remarks that “four, or five, or six grains is excellently good in a fever to be taken in any cordial, for it cheers the heart and vital spirits exceedingly, and makes them impregnable”. Don’t try this at home!

(It’s not quite as bad as it sounds; scrapings of hart’s horn were frequently used as a thickener for jellies, and crab’s claws was a common British water plant.)4

.
Although S.A.C., Vol. VI., p. 140 et seq., gives the respite of the homage of Edward Culpeper for Naylands and Hilland until 24 Jun 1603, and ascribe the reason to the badness of the Sussex roads, there appears to have been another and probably more potent reason, in the fact that Sir Edward Culpeper (who was knighted at Whitehall before the Coronation of King James, 23 Jul 1603), had to bring a lawsuit before he could obtain possession of the premises, of which, as referring to the history of Thomas and Joan Culpeper, a short abstract is given here of the Chancery Proceedings, dated 24 Apr 1604:
-----start of abstract------
Sir Edward Culpeper, of Wakehurst complains that whereas Thomas Culpeper his father died in your orator's minority and putting great trust in Thomas Culpeper late of Balcombe, Esq., his natural brother entrusted him with the dealing with his goods and profits until your orator should attain his full age. This Thomas Culpeper received great sums during the minority which he ought to account for. It was agreed between your orator and Thomas Culpeper and one Johanna whom he the said Thomas intended to marry that he, your said orator, should release to the said Thomas Culpeper divers great sums of money with which the said Thomas stood charged and also that your orator should by fine and recovery join in the assurance of divers lands so that Thomas Culpeper might sell some to pay his debts and settle something more as jointure for his wife, which by reason of the weakness of his estate the said Thomas could not have assured without your orator joining with him: also that he should enfeoffe John Threele late of Hurstpierpoint and Johanna Fynes of certain lands called Naylands, which Thomas Culpeper purchased out of money he received from your orator to the use of the said Thomas and Johanna for their lives with remainder to their right heirs, with remainder to your orator, whereby Naylands should be in your orator's inheritance at the death of the said Thomas in lieu of money owing to him.
.
But so yet is your orator is informed that Thomas Culpeper and Johanna his wife had agreed to execute some former estate of inheritance in Naylands to Johanna Culpeper's use and he did fraudulently make over his estate to her. The said Johanna since the death of the said Thomas Culpeper gives speeches and greatly menaces and threatens your said orator that she has the inheritance of the land called Naylands. She hath the deeds etc.
.
Johanna Culpeper in her answer says that the said Thomas Culpeper for divers years together carried a most loving affection for her being a gentlewoman of an honorable descent of the honorable house of the Lord Dacres, and daughter and sole heir of John Fynes of Claverham, Esq., and finding no probable mean of marriage during John Fynes lifetime, and the said Thomas, that notwithstanding, being still desirous to gain her this defendant’s further love, the said Thomas knowing that such a marriage to be a great preferment unto him, the said Thomas himself being a gentleman of a younger house and of small possessions, and the said Thomas having at the same time great occasions of discontentment offered him by his two brethren then living, yea so great that he the said Thomas would disinherit either of them, came and said he would make her his heir and give her his house lately purchase at Naylands. The defendant then said "What will the world say if you should give me your land having two brethren" and the said Thomas said it would far better be bestowed on her than on them. When John Fynes died (? John Fenis, of Arlington. Will proved at Lewes, 8 May 1584, but now undiscoverable. B. 1, 128.), Thomas Culpeper came to Johanna and said if she did not marry him she plight undo him for that he the said Thomas had given her the fee simple of his land which would then descend to the Fynes... without which she would never have married him. After her marriage Thomas Culpeper carried her to see her house at Naylands where the said Thomas said he would dwell. She found no convenient house thereon and absolutely refused to dwell there unless he would build thereon. The said Thomas wanted her to advance the requisite means on the ground that it was her own, whereupon the said Thomas condescended and built a fair house with part of her substance, and by selling part of her substance in amount of five hundred marks, and she advanced five or six hundred pounds (a mark equals 2/3 of a pound), whereas the land only cost four hundred hounds.She the said defendant meanly lied for the accomplishment thereof even until her husband Thomas died, a little before o whoso death it was cruelly spoken about that her house and land called Naylands was mortgaged to the said complainant. She went to her husband to inquire the truth who said he owed not a penny and hoped he was not so dishonest a man as to say that he owed him anything for that the said complainant was rather in his debt and that all the money that the said complainant ever could demand of him he paid the said complainant in Ardingly church porch in good gold (as this defendant now remembers). He said further that the said complainant had been a costly nephew and unkind to him, he wished her therefore to look well to her writings. She further said that she settled the manor of Lewsham (known in 1999 as Leasam) in Susses value, £100 per annum, on her husband. She conveyed the manor to John Threele reserving £66 per annum to herself and her husband, with this the said Thomas was to buy land near Naylands so as to make it equal to Lewsham, but he died before doing so or furnishing the house.
-----end of abstract------
.
Thomas Culpeper and Joan, his wife, were defendants in another Chancery suit concerning the estate of her father, John Fynes. The proceedings, though undated, must leave been after 1587, as mention is made of Elizabeth Fynes having enjoyed the Manor of Claverham four years after her husband's death (1583).
.
The complainant was John Fynes of Claverham. He says his uncle John Fynes of Claverham was seized of the Manor of Claverham in the parishes of Arlington, Selmeston, Chiddingly, Hellingly. and Chalvington, being the ancient inheritance of John Fynes and his ancestors. This John Fynes, having no sons and only one daughter named Joanne Fynes, intended to prefer your said orator with the inheritance of the said manor and to leave the residue of his said lands unto his daughter. By Indenture 1 Jan 1580 (22 Elizabeth), between John Fynes and Elizabeth his wife of the one part, John Lufford of Hoathly and John Threele of Hurstpierpoint, Executor of the last will of Edward Fynes, father guardian and keeper of your said orator of the 2nd part, James Thatcher of Preysthawes, Herbert Pelham of Hellingly, and Thomas Culpeper of Balcombe, Esq., the said John Fynes made a settlement of his manor of Claverham. He then says that the parties came to Lewes at the Assizes which were held about six miles distant from the dwelling house of the said John Fynes, and then and there the said Indenture was sealed and delivered, and John Fynes and Elizabeth his wife did acknowledge a fine of the manor unto the said James Thatcher, Herbert Pelham and Thomas Culpeper since which time John Fynes the uncle died and his wife Elizabeth enjoyed the manor for fewer years. And so it is that Joanne Fynes, having now married Thomas Culpeper, they perceiving that the said fine was acknowledged after the day limited in the said Indenture have given forth in speech that the said fine and Recovery were to the use of the said John Fynes the uncle, and his heirs and not to such uses as in the said Indentures were expressed. Whereas, in truth the said Thomas Culpeper and Joanne do well know that the said Fynes the uncle agreed that the said fine and Recovery should be to the uses in the said Indentures expressed. He asks for a writ of subpoena to be directed unto Thomas Culpeper and Joanne to appear and make answer.o.
