Harriet Beecher Stowe's family trace their lineage to the Becher's of Kent England. The Irish Bechers also come from Kent originally, but they all descend from Fane/Phane Becher, son of Henry Becher from London. He went to Co Cork in 1586/7 after being given a grant of land by Elizabeth I. Many Becher's and Hungerfords intermarried in Co Cork, living in Sherkin and Aughadown. Quite a few did emigrate to the USA.
