Hopefully the Cap Badge for the Duke of Wellington's West Riding Regiment formerly
Hawley's Foot/ 33rd Foot
Now 2nd Batt Yorkshire Regiment

11th June 1683 Winchester Cathedral

 Richard Chaloner Cobb son of Mr Thomas Cobb, and Vereana his wife, was baptizd June the 11th
[As his grandfather Richard Cobb(e) and great uncle Michael Cobb(e) sold the Grange, Swarraton in 1636 to the Paulet family, it is likely that the family lived in Winchester. The sale of the Grange occured before Richard Cobb(e) married Honor Norton who was, in turn, daughter of Amy Norton (nee Bilson). Amy was the daughter of Thomas Bislon, Bishop of Winchester who with Miles Smith edited the 1611 King James Bible, immediately prior to its publication. Today (21st Century) a much upgraded Grange is used to stage operas]

Entry in 1683 Baptism Register, Winchester Cathedral

Vereana/Veriana Chaloner, RCC_1's mother, was daughter of James Chaloner, Governor of the Isle of Man and a Regicide. Her mother, James's wife, was Ursula Fairfax, daughter of Sir Philip Fairfax of Steeton (another lost village - in Yorkshire). James's father was Sir Thomas Chaloner the Younger. He was tutor & governor to Henry, Prince of Wales, son of James VI of Scotland, also James 1 of England. Prince Henry died young and his brother became Charles 1. James Chaloner, with brother Thomas, were judges at the trial of Charles 1. Thomas actually signed the Warrant of Execution. James apparently died in Peel Castle, Isle of Man, possibly his own hand with poison, but Thomas escaped to the Netherlands to die in his bed in Middleburg there, under the name of George Saunders, or Sanders. There is a van Dyke portrait of Thomas in the Hermitage at St. Petersburg, possibly erroneosly entitled "Sir Thomas Chaloner". It was, apparently, part of the Walpole collection sold to Catherine the Great during the latter part of the 18th Century.

Ursula Fairfax was daughter of Sir Philip Fairfax of Steeton and his wife Frances. Frances was the daughter of Edmund, Lord Sheffield (Sheffeild) and First Cousin of Black Tom Fairfax, 3rd baron Fairfax (1612 - 1671), an important General in Cromwell's Army. Black Tom's mother was Mary, who married Ferdinando, 2nd Baron Fairfax (1584 - 1647). Mary was the sister of Frances, the wife of Sir Phililp Fairfax of Steeton, Yorkhsire.
