Peter, who evidently kept his step-mother for several years after Edmund's death [ SLR1:89]..BIRTH: About 1575 based on date of marriage..DEATH: Hingham 8 March 1646[/7] "father Hubbeard died" [ NEHGR 121:18]..MARRIAGE: (1) Hingham, Norfolk, 7 September 1600 Margaret Dewey.

BIBLIOGRAPHIC NOTES: In 1951 Clarence Almon Torrey summarized the family of Edmund Hobart, with inclusion of all the English records known at that time [ TAG 27:94-95]. Rev. Peter Hobart maintained a record of many of the vital events occurring in Hingham during his lifetime, and this was published in 1967 [ NEHGR121:3-25, 102-27, 191-216, 269-94].

The Peerage of England:  FROM Sir James Hobart, Knight, Attorney general, and of the Privy Council to Henry VII do the several branches of the Hobarts owe their principal rife; yet the family was of genteel extraction in Norfolk for many generations before JOHN Hobart is a mentioned in deeds to be owner of lands at De la Tye in the said county, in 1389, his son GODFREY of the same place is also mentioned in 1407, and son John in 10 Henry VI who had issue Thomas Hobart of the Tye and Gedford street in the said county and deceasing in 1458 37 Henry VI, left issue by his wife Eleanor daughter and heir of Robert At Church (by his wife Eleanor daughter and heir of John Taylor alias Amfrey of Kellefey) William his son and heir living in 1478. Which WILLIAM was father to THOMAS Hobart who re- at Leyham and had issue two sons William and James whereof the eldest had the estate at Leyham and having married Anne daughter to Sir Philip Tilney and heir to her mother from them descended the Hobarts of Monks Illegh afterwards of Lindfey and the Hobarts of Milding and others who fettled in London. JAMES the youngest son by his prudent acquisitions left a fine estate to his posterity. He was says Fuller in his Worthies of Norfolk "a right good man of great Learning and wisdom Being entered at Lincoln's Inn for the study of the laws, he made such proficiency therein that in 18 Ed.  IV he was elected Lent reader of that society and in the same year was one of the governors thereof and so continued till 23 Hen. VII also in 2 Hen. VII was constituted Attorney general to the King and afterwards sworn of his Privy Council and continued Attorney general till his decease in 1507 and was buried in Norwich cathedral.  On February 18 1502-3 he was made one of the Knights of the sword at the creation of Henry Prince of Wales and was in the highest esteem. Dr Holland in the additions to Camden gives this account of him. "The river Yare (faith he) receiveth a brook which passeth by nothing memorable but Hailes Hall and that only memorable for the ancient owner Sit James Hobart Attorney general and of the Privy Council to King Henry the Seventh by him dubbed Knight at such time as he created Henry his son, Prince of Wales........ From Weaver's Funeral Monuments p 862 we are informed that he was buried in Loddon church near his wife Margaret daughter of Peter Naunton Esq who died before him AD 1494 and there yet remains in the north chapel next the chancel a raised tomb which was inlaid with brass and two portraitures thereon but the inscription is defaced but according to Dr Blomefield's History of Norfolk and Dr Browne's Repertorium he was buried in Norwich cathedral. He rebuilt the parish church at Loddon and the bridge at St Olave's commonly called St Tooley's bridge and made the causeway by it. They had issue two sons Walter and Miles Hobart. WALTER the eldest son succeeded at Halles Hall and having been knighted was Sheriff of Norfolk and Suffolk in 27 Hen VIII. From him and Anne his first wife daughter to Sir Henry Heydon Knight descended the Hobarts of Halles Hall and Blyford in co Suff and from his second wife Ann daughter to John Ratcliff, Lord Fitzwalter, and sister to Robert Earl of Suff are derived the Hobarts of Morley in co Norf. MILES second son of Sir James was seated at Plumfted in Norfolk and having married Eleanor youngest daughter to John Bleverhasset Esq of Frense in Norfolk had issue two sons Thomas and John who married Anne daughter of Sir Philip Tilney Knight and settling at Wayte in co Norf became the founder of that branch. THOMAS the eldest succeeded to the estate at Plumsted by his wife Audrey daughter and heir of William Hare of Beefton in com Norf Esq he had two sons Miles who received the honour of knighthood and inherited the estate at Plumsted and Henry who had the estate of Intwood in Norfolk also two daughters Mary and Ellen. Which HENRY fifth Baronet applied himself to the study of the laws and being entered at Lincoln's Inn attained such knowledge therein and grew into such esteem that in 39 Eliz he was elected one of the governors of that society and in the parliament which met the same year was returned one of the Burgesses for Yarmouth.........
