About Alice Mayhew

was born before 1570 in Tisbury, Wiltshire, England. (755)(753) McKay has birth year of "bef 1570." Conover has "02 OCT 1540" which is very possibly an error. If birth years of parents herein given are correct, her mother was 10 years old at Alice's birth in 1540 and her father was 14. Also Alice would have been about 52 or 53 when Thomas, the 3rd of 7 children, was born. She died in 1614 in Tisbury, Wiltshire, England. Banks said he could not with complete satisfaction designate beyond doubt the particular branch of the Barters of Wiltshire to which Alice belonged but the pedigree I have entered he felt was her probable parentage. The will of James Barter of Fovent, Wilts, is dated Sept. 1, 1565, and in it he mentions among others his eldest son Edward and his daughter (in law) Edith, wife of Edward (Arch Sarum, P.C.C. IV, 210) The will of Edward Barter, his son, of Haxton, Wilts, of the parish of Fydleton, is dated Oct. 6, 1574, and mentions among others, his wife Edith and his daughter Alice. (Arch. Sarum, P.C.C. V, 231) The will of Edith Barter, widow, of the same parish, is dated Aug. 9, 1576, and mentions among others her daughter Alice to whom she gave "halfe an aker of wheat and half an aker of barley my best cowlett, my white pety coat, my kercher, my canvas apron a platter and porringer" (Arch. Sarum, P.C. C., V. 273) This was the only Alice Banks found in his searches of Wiltshire wills, and as the name of Edward was bestowed on the third son of Matthew and Alice, presumably in honor of her father, as Thomas had been given in memory of his father, this origin of Alice Barter, the mother of Thomas Mayhew, is offered as the probable solution of the question of her ancestry.
