...Appears to have been a Baptist and a yeoman of substantial means. He owned land in Marston(inherited by his grandson, also Jonathon), Potterne, Rowde, Erlestoke ("Trimnells") and Seende "Henmarsh", bought from John and Alice Stokes. The lists of 'Feet of Fines' for Wiltshire has references to transactions involving property in 1651, 1662, 1669 and 1680, all in Erlestoke. His will, proved 6/1/1686 involved the sum of £73110 shillings and 6 pence and named his children and some of his grandchildren. The later children were not baptised....

....The complicated interrelationships among these people results from the small population of the villages around Erlestoke and the fact that they were Non-Conformists (Dissenters, mainly Baptists) and tended to stick together. Thus in a list of Wiltshire Dissenters Meeting House Certificates and Registers for 1689-1852 we have typically: "12 July 1698, Erlestoke, a dwelling house now vacant of Mr. Henry Axford (Baptist),John Axford, John Alldredge, Wiliam Ball." Other names apearing at later dates include Edwarde Froude, Thomas Axford, John George, Isaac Axford the Younger (Quaker - following his marriage), Isac Aford Junior, Edward Gye, Thomas Beavor, Stephen Jones, William Axford, John Alldredge, Ballard, John Blatch, Henry Whitaker,Jeffrey Whitaker, John Gauntlett, John Eales, , ... etc.

The certificates seem to have been neessary because the Established Church was very keen to get its tithes. Thus we find Isaac Axford (the above Quaker) complaining in the Great Book of Quaker Complaints that Isaac Axford,his father would come with his servants and take away wheat, etc. which was presumably given over to the Church as tithes so that he satisfied both the Quakers and the Church of England.

Who's Who of Tudor Women
ANNE BACON (1573-November 1622)
Anne Bacon was the daughter of Sir Nathaniel Bacon (c.1546-November 1622) and Anne Gresham (c.1549-1594). Raised as a puritan, Anne was sent at the age of eighteen to a puritan boarding school in Dickleborough, Norfolk and she remained there until she married John Townshend of Raynham (1567/8-August 2, 1590) in December 1593. Anne’s husband had an “aggressive and violent” nature, made worse by the fact that the young couple were obliged to live on the charity of their parents. John’s mother, Jane (née Stanhope) (c.1547-1618) held a life interest in the Thownshend estates, even after her remarriage in 1598 to Henry, Lord Berkeley. The death of Anne’'s mother and the possibility that her father would remarry and sire a son meant she might no longer inherit her father’s properties at Stiffkey, Langham, and Morston. This did not happen, but John died in debt, having sold off most of his land to his mother. Lady Berkeley also obtained the wardship of the heir, Anne’s oldest son, Roger (November 1595-January 1, 1637). Her other children were Anne and Stanhope (c.1597-c.1620). In around 1605, Anne was being courted by Sir George Southcote (d.c. 1638) but did not marry him. She was one of a number of puritan women who supported radical clergymen. The Bacon-Townshend Collection of letters written between 1550 and 1640 is at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Biography: Oxford DNB entry under “Townshend [née Bacon], Anne.”

235 Gen-Medieval List:Thu, 18 Jun 2009 10:39:24 +1000
Leo this is what I'm showing
Thomas Knyvett, 4th Lord /Berners/ de jure died 9 Feb 1617/1618
He is the one who married Muriel Parry daughter of Thomas /Parry/ , Comptroller of the Household to E1; Knt 1558 by his wife Anne /Reade/

We can know that Muriel was *old* because Thomas her father died 15 Dec 1560, so she cannot be the wife of Thomas Jr.
The Thomas who m Elizabeth Bacon "second daughter" of Nathaniel Bacon of Stiffkey (by his wife Anne Gresham), d.v.p. and he was buried 20 Sep 1605 (at an unknown place)
according to stirnet.

They did however manage to have at least or exactly three children:
Catherine Knyvett born by 1595 (not in) married Sir Edmund Paston
"heir apparent of his father" (so-called in 9J1), who Edmund died 1632 "aged 48" and is buried at Paston.

In addition to this Catherine, Thomas Knyvett and Elizabeth Bacon had a son Thomas bap 10 Jun 1596 who was the "successor of his
grandfather" giving extra proof that his father had d.v.p. This last Thomas (the 3rd if you will) is that one who m Catherine de Burgh "fourth and youngest daughter of her father" the 6th Baron Burgh of Gainsborough.

And also, Thomas Knyvett and Elizabth Bacon had a son Nathaniel Knyvett (1598-1659) who married the intriguingly named "Margaretha Vernatti" in 1630.

Hostage to Fortune
The Troubled Life of Francis Bacon
By LISA JARDINE and ALAN STEWART
Hill and Wang
...For Nicholas Bacon, the social rise which had begun with his education in the liberal arts and the law was consolidated by marriage. His first wife was a Suffolk merchant's daughter named Jane Fernley, who was to provide him with an important family link to the influential London merchant banker (and financial agent to the Queen) Sir Thomas Gresham, who married her sister Anne. Jane bore him seven children, then died suddenly in late 1552. With six surviving offspring, all under twelve, to be cared for, a second marriage had to be arranged as a matter of urgency: Sir Nicholas took a new wife within weeks. In spite of the speed with which the marriage contract must have been negotiated, it was an equally shrewd move in terms of the bereaved Sir Nicholas' future prospects within the Tudor gentry.
Sir Nicholas' second bride, Anne Cooke, came from the intellectual milieu he took such pleasure in frequenting. The suspicion with which his first wife's family always regarded her suggests the possibility that she had already taken his fancy even before the ailing Jane died. Anne was one of the five daughters of Sir Anthony Cooke, widely esteemed from their youth for their erudition and piety.
...Nathaniel, three years younger than Nicholas, was destined to lead Norfolk society from his estate at Stiffkey. His wife was another Anne, the young illegitimate daughter of Sir Nicholas' brother-in-law Sir Thomas Gresham. Acknowledged from birth by her father, she too brought a considerable fortune to her marriage. Building out from Stiffkey, Nathaniel's estate soon included four Suffolk manors settled on the couple by Gresham and two Norfolk manors bought up by his father. The Bacon daughters, too, were well set up. The eldest, Elizabeth, married the courtier Sir Robert Doyly; Ann married Henry Woodhouse of Wraxham, son of a prominent Norfolk family; and the youngest (confusingly also named Elizabeth) married the recorder of Norwich, Sir Francis Wyndham, who later became a Judge of Common Pleas. Each had a substantial marriage portion (£800 in the case of the elder Elizabeth; one thousand marks each for the two younger sisters). .....In the summer of 1569, as noted above, Nathaniel Bacon married Anne, the illegitimate daughter of Sir Thomas Gresham by a Mistress Dutton, one of his household servants who had been married off by her master to Thomas Dutton, a factor employed by Gresham in Antwerp and Hamburg. Anne's education naturally left much to be desired, and as the bride of Sir Nicholas' son she had to be turned into a lady at speed. Nathaniel knew exactly how this was to be done. Immediately after the marriage he arranged for her to join his much younger half-brothers in the schoolroom at Gorhambury.
Sir Thomas Gresham's wife Anne was not entirely comfortable to see Anne Dutton-Gresham under Lady Bacon's roof. Nathaniel wrote first to one of Sir Thomas' servants, asking him to put the case to his parents-in-law: `I require no great time for my wife to be with my Lady [Lady Bacon], half a year or a quarter, more or less as my father[-in-law] shall appoint the time certain, and within that space if upon any occasion he shall mislike of her usage, I will undertake it shall be so.' To Lady Gresham herself he wrote reassuring her that the cost at least would be met elsewhere: `In my talk had with your Ladyship I perceived you were not minded, if my wife were placed here, to be at any charge with her. I shall undertake that shall be so rather than any let [hindrance] shall thereby grow; only I require that you and my father[-in-law] will show a good liking of her coming hither, for otherwise I know my Lady [Lady Bacon] will not have her.'
Some years later Nathaniel recalled the circumstances, and acknowledged his debt to his stepmother:
Your ladyship knoweth how, being matched in marriage as I am, it stood me upon to have some care of the well bringing up of my wife, for these words of Erasmus are very true: plus est bene instrui quam bene nasci [it is better to have been well instructed than well born]. If she should have had the want of both, I had just cause to fear what might befall. Hereupon, being not able to remedy the one, I did as much as in me lay to provide for the other, and therefore I sought by all the means I could to have her placed with your ladyship. This is it for which I think myself so greatly beholding to your ladyship, in that you were content to trouble yourself with having my wife, and not that alone, but during her being with you to have such care over her and better to use her than I myself could have wished. Yea, I often said, and yet say, a more strait manner of usage would have wrought a greater good. Yet such was your ladyship's goodwill, which I will not live to be unmindful of: for the care had of her, I account it had of me; the good done to her, I account it done to me, for I persuade myself it was done in respect of me.
Anne Gresham Bacon herself was fulsome in her acknowledgement of the pains Lady Bacon had taken with her, and retained fond memories of those shared lessons, sending warm wishes, when she wrote to her mother-in-law, `to my brother Anthony and my good brother Frank'.

The details in this biography come from the History of Parliament a biographical dictionary of Members of the House of Commons.
Educ. Trinity Coll. Camb. 1561; G. Inn 1562. Married first Anne, illegit. dau. of Sir Thomas Gresham , of whom he had one son, d.v.p., and three daughters. Married second Dorothy, dau. of Arthur Hopton of Witham, Som., widow of William Smyth, s.p. Kntd. 1604. After leaving Cambridge without graduating, Bacon proceeded to Gray's Inn where he shared the lord keeper's chamber with his brothers Nicholas and Edward, and his half-brother Anthony. Bacon's two periods as Member for Tavistock were no doubt the result of religious affinity and family friendship with Francis Russell, 2nd Earl of Bedford , his own local standing explains his membership for Norfolk and King's Lynn. J.p. Norf. from 1574, q. by 1577, sheriff 1586-7, 1599-1600, dep. lt. by 1601; ancient, G.

His three daughters, who had married John Townshend , Robert Gawdy and Thomas Knyvett, were named as executrices, the estates being shared between them and his wife, with provision for his grandchildren. Bacon apologised for giving ‘no greater legacies’, since he was heavily in debt to his elder step-son, Owen Smyth, the profits of whose lands he had used during Smyth's minority. He had, moreover, given his second wife ‘£400 a year more than I assured her before marriage’ Bacon died in Nov 1622.

Ordinary's Account, 23rd November 1757. Reference Number: OA17571123
THE ORDINARY of NEWGATE'S ACCOUNT of the Behaviour, Confession, and Dying Words, Of the NINE MALEFACTORS, Who were executed at TYBURN, On WEDNESDAY the 23November1757; and on FRIDAY the 31March1758, BEING THE First and Second EXECUTIONS in the Mayoralty OF THE Rt. Hon. Sir CHARLES ASGIL, Knt. LORD-MAYOR of the CITY of LONDON.

?
On Thursday, March 23, the report of 11 other malefactors was made to his majesty, when eight were ordered for execution on Friday 31st of March, viz. William Green, Jeremiah Bailey, Joseph Wood, Joseph Wheely, Alice Davis, Samuel Ong, John Davis, John Allen, who were executed according to their sentence. Richard Benham for sheep steeling, Elizabeth Allen for a felony, and Edward Humphrys for a burglary were respited, and also Elizabeth Tomkinson and Margaret Larney being found pregnant by a jury of matrons, on the day of sentence being past.
...3. Jeremiah Bailey was indicted for that he, on the king's highway, on Ann Roystan widow , did make an assault, putting her in corporal sear and danger of her life, and taking from her person, one serge gown, value five shillings, six linnen aprons, five linen-caps, value two-shillings, one ivory comb, two ribbands, two ounces of worsted, two pair of worsted stockings, two pounds weight of sugar, one quarter of a pound of tea, one half pound of butter, two linen handkerchiefs, one half guinea, and eight shillings in money number'd, her property, 18November.
On the trial the fact was proved very strong against him, so far as the evidence of Ann Royston can go; confirmed by the circumstance of William Weaver coming up to her immediately after the fact, on hearing a woman's voice, and finding her stamping and crying; and that she told him the matter, as deposed in court, describing the man, but naming no name: Confirmed also by the evidence of Thomas Stanley, who gave the prosecutrix a good character, she being nurse to his wife, and had left his house that evening with the money and goods of which she was robb'd; that he has known the prisoner about ten years, that within two months past,....He was born at Ashwell in Hertfordshire; but has lived about Edmonton for twelve years past: he lived partly by labouring work , and partly by higling , was wholly illiterate, and being deafish it was no easy matter to instruct him, and bring him to a right disposition....
In the account of Jeremiah Bailey, it was omitted to be mentioned, that after evening service on Easter-day he desired to speak with me, and said, he had endeavoured to make his peace with God to the best of his power, and forgave all the world, as he hoped on be forgiven; (particularly his prosecutrix, which he found very difficult, and could not do before) but declared solemnly, as he was a dying man, he was innocent of the fact for which he was to suffer; and begged earnestly that all juries might be warned against rashly finding persons guilty who may be innocent: he repeated the same request to mr. Akerman before he was carried out to execution, and begged the caution should be given to courts and juries. He had often been told that great caution was used by them in taking evidence and detecting false witnesses, that the ought to have produced his witnesses in his defence, Etc. And being again pressed to a confession, if guilty; he answered do you think I could stand out in a lie after all the good words I have heard? He was resigned, and expressed a lively hope of his salvation....
The hurry and surprize, occasion'd by Wood's death (for he died about 8 o'clock) and Wheely's hiding himself, delay'd their setting out 'till half an hour past the appointed time, which was 9 o'clock, when they were carried out: Six in two carts, viz. William Green; Jeremiah Bailey and Joseph Wheeley in the first; in the second, Samuel Ong, John Davis, and John Allen; and on the sledge Alice Davis, and the body of Joseph Wood.
At the place of execution, they were again ask'd singly, if they had any thing particular to say, or farther confession to make Bailey still asserted his entire innocence of the fact for which he died, as he had done ever since his sentence, he repeated his request, that jurries might be warned from him, to be very careful. what evidence they believed. for as he often said, " Other poor men may be in my case."...
After this, poor Bailey, made his, last request, that as he was friendless the Ordinary would take care to have him buried, which by help of a small contribution made for that purpose by the humane and compassionate beholders, was carefully performed.
