Family notes:

·         In 1993, the Leon Levy Expedition, under the direction of Prof. Lawrence Stager of Harvard University, made discoveries at the site of ancient Ashkelon, which is located 40 miles south of Tel Aviv on the Mediterranean coast. In 1156 the city fell to crusaders under King Baldwin III of Jersulem; but eventually retaken by the Moslems. In 1192, Richard the Lion rebuilt the military fortress at the site. The wars continued and in 1241 the Earl of Cornwall refortified the site. During one of these crusades, as discovered in 1993, a knight made multiple carvings of his heraldic shield over arabic works inscribed in stone – the heraldic shield of Sir Hugh Wake, likely this Hugh.
