JOHN AT HECCHE, of Sellinge, in the hundred of Street, co. Kent, the testator of 1464, was born probably about 1415 and died not earlier than 15 Nov. 1464. He married AGNES , who was living when his will was made. He was probably a miller. He was undoubtedly descended from some of the Atte Hacches found in the hundred of Calehill, in the subsidies of 1327/8 and 1372/3. These subsidies do not name the parishes in which the persons assessed lived; but the hundred of Calehill comprised the parishes of Charing, Westwell, Egerton, Little Chart,, and Pluckley, as well as parts of several other parishes. Contemporary with the above John at Hecche of Seliinge were several of the name in Charing, probably his brothers and causins, who left wills not given in this article. The mention of his lands in Westwell and Charing places his origin in that ancient Atte Hacche family, and he is the first of the name in Sdllinge or vicinity of whom record has been found. His will names his wife Agnes and three sons.
