  • Notes 
    • Churchill, Oxfordshire. In the South Aisle, against the South Wall, is this Inscription:
      "Here lyeth Elizabeth Bourne wife of Anthony Bourne Esq.
      & only daugh. & heiress of Edm. Horne Esq.
      Of ye body of Amy Clarke his last wife who departed this life ye XXV of Aug in ye year of our lord 1599."


      ELIZABETH HORNE (c.1549-1599)
      Elizabeth Horne was the daughter of Edmund Horne of Sarsdon, Oxfordshire (c.1490-1553), a gentleman pensioner, and Amy Clarke. Elizabeth's mother took as her second husband Sir James Mervyn (1539-1611), by whom she had another daughter, Lucy (1565-before 1610), who later married George Touchet, baron Audley (later earl of Castlehaven). Brought up in her stepfather's household in Wiltshire, Elizabeth married Anthony Bourne of Holt Castle, Worcestershire in 1566. Although they had two children, Mary and Amy, Bourne was a womanizer and frequently away from home. He was also a violent man,... after he had stolen the wife of a London gentleman, Lord Burghley threatened to prosecute him. In 1575, Bourne fled to Calais with his mistress and their son. ... Amy Clarke Mervyn or Marvin is found on lists of ladies in 1558/9 and 1567/8. The situation dragged on, unresolved, until 1590, in spite of Elizabeth having the able advice of Sir Julius Caesar. In November 1584, Elizabeth wrote to her half sister, Lady Audley, in reply to a letter Lucy had written to her in August: "My good Sister, I give you a million of thanks, that you would vouchsafe to enquire after my well-doing. Amongst all my misfortunes, nothing had increased my grief so much as the unkindness of my natural friends, of whom I have allways deserved well, and find the contrary. When I was distressed, and forced and constrained by necessity to seek the aid of friends to resist the injuries my unkind husband offered me himself, and my children, to the utter overthrow of us all, I first sought my refuge amongst those which by nature were most bound to have yielded me counsel and comfort, friendship, succour and assistance. Being refused through no ill deserts in myself, but through want of good will in themselves, I was forced, my dear sister, and could not otherwise, to accept aid amongst strangers who had some reason to offer it, and I more to take it. . . . I live at Sarisden, where I mean to secrete myself and my sorrows, until God give me a better estate."
      ...Amy Bourne did marry Fulke Conway. Mary Bourne wed Sir Herbert Croft.
