41 According to a family tree copied from a Johnson family Bible, which is generally believed to be accurate, Phene's surname was Newton; however, it says her given name was Ida and according to the 1880 census, Ida was the given name of her daughter. This family tree is incorrect with respect to Phene.

According to the 1880 census, Henry's wife's given name was "Phene," although the writing is very difficult to read. It could be spelled "Phane", but it was probably just a short form of her given name.

Phene's given name was actually Tryphena Elizabeth and her surname was Arbuthnot. 
Tryphena Elizabeth Arbuthnot
42 Arnulf I of Flanders (c.890-March 27, 965), known as Arnulf the Great, was the third count of Flanders.

Arnulf was the son of count Baldwin II of Flanders and Ælfthryth, daughter of Alfred the Great. He was named after his distant ancestor, Saint Arnulf of Metz; this was intended to emphasize his family's descent from the Carolingian royal house.

Arnulf greatly expanded Flemish rule to the south, taking all or part of Artois, Ponthieu, Amiens, and Ostravent. He exploited the conflicts between Charles the Simple and Robert I of France, and later those between Louis IV and his barons.

In his southern expansion Arnulf inevitably had conflict with the Normans, who were trying to secure their northern frontier. This led to the 942 murder of the Duke of Normandy, William Longsword, at the hands of Arnulf's men.

The Viking threat was receding during the later years of Arnulf's life, and he turned his attentions to the reform of the Flemish government.

In 934 he married Adele of Vermandois, daughter of Herbert II of Vermandois. Their children were:

Baldwin III of Flanders
Luitgard, married Wichmann, Count of Ghent
Egbert, died 953
Elftrude, married Siegfried, Count of Guines
Arnulf made his eldest son and heir Baldwin III of Flanders co-ruler in 958, but Baldwin died untimely in 962, so Arnulf was succeeded by Baldwin's infant son, Arnulf II of Flanders.

Through his descendants Matilda of Flanders and Henry I of England, he was an ancestor to the present-day British royal family including Elizabeth II of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Count Arnulf, of Flanders I
43 Arnulf II of Flanders (960 or 961 - March 30, 988) was Count of Flanders from 965 until his death.

He was the son of Baldwin III of Flanders and Matilda of Saxony. Baldwin III died in 962, when Arnulf was just an infant, and with Arnulf's grandfather count Arnulf I of Flanders still alive. When Arnulf I died three years later (965), the regency was held by their kinsman Baldwin Balso.

By the time Arnulf attained his majority in 976, Flanders had lost some of the southern territory acquired by Arnulf I. The latter had given some parts of Picardy to King Lothar of France to help assure his grandson's succession, and gave Boulogne as a fief to another relative. Then early in Arnulf's minority Lothar had taken Ponthieu and given it to Hugh Capet, and the first counts of Guines had established themselves.

He married Rozala of Lombardy, daughter of Berengar II of Italy, and was succeeded by their son, Baldwin IV.

46 The name Ashcom (and its variants--Ascham, Askham, Ashcomb, Ashcombe, etc.) may either (i) be derived from the villages of East Ascham and West Ascham in Yorkshire, England, or (ii) be a be a compound derivation of "ash," as in the tree, and "comb," which is common word for valley in southeast England.

A Roger de Askam is mentioned as early as 1313. Hammond Askham was Master of Balliol College, Oxford in 1317 and resided in Kirby Wiske, Yorkshire, England. William Askham was Yoeman of York in 1390. William Askham was Lord Mayor of London in 1403. Walter ASkham was Sargeant at Law in 1510.

A Roger Ascham, born 1515, was educated at St. John's College, receiving a B.A. Degree on February 18, 1533. He was admitted to fellowship at St. John's on March 23, 1533, where he was a scholar of Greek and Latin and an accomplished musician. He was know for his beautiful handwriting. He was the author of a number of books and treatises, including, in 1544, a famous treatise on archery and, between 1563 and 1568, his famous "Scholemaster." He became an orator at the Universtiy of Cambridge. Then, in July 1548 he became tutor to Princess Elizabeth. In 1553, he became Latin Secretary to Queen Mary. He married margaret Howe, a niece of Sir Henry Wallop on January 1, 1554. For his service to the Queen, he obtained a grant of Salisbury Hall at Walthamstow, Essex in 1567. A month before he died, he sat up nights to complete a Latin poem which he desired to present to eh Queen on November 17--the anniversary of her accession. He died on December 30, 1568, of a "wasting disease." On hearing of his death, Qeen Elizabeth is reported to have exclaimed that she "would rather have cast L10,000 into the sea, than to have lost her Ashcam." Scholars in England and on the Continent expressed their grief at his death by composing Latin verses to his memory. 
47 According to his Birth Certificate, Charles (his given name on his Birth Certificate) was the illegitimate son of Fred Aschom (note spelling), age 22, and Annie Blough, age 20. Annie later married Arthur Arthurs and together they raised Charles with the name "Roy Charles Ashcom".
