  • The Bernards of Abington and Nether Winchendon: A Family History, Volume 1 By Sophia Elizabeth Higgins
  • Pg.24
  • John, the eldest son of John Bernard and Margaret Daundelyn, was only in his eighteenth year when he lost his father, and in all likelihood he had already lost his mother. Even if placed under guardianship for a short time, he must have achieved complete independence with his majority, and would seem to have taken advantage of his liberty to 'marry for love' — a rare event in those days. Or perhaps, while fancying that he was asserting his rights, the young squire was really captured by designing parents. His chosen wife, whoever chose her, was Cicely,1 daughter of John Muscote, of Earl's Barton. Muscote is styled 'gentleman,' 2 not esquire ; this, however, denotes inferiority in estate rather than in blood.
  • .... etc.
  • Pg.28
  • In the record of John and Cicely Bernard's children there is no longer any difficulty about the names of daughters. They were the parents of four girls as well as of two boys.
  • Pg.33
  • John Bernard died in 1549, early in the reign of Edward VI. ; Cicely, his wife, in 1557, towards the end of Mary's reign. Some remains of their tombs are still to be seen in Abington Church. .... etc.
  • Francis Bernard, the eldest son of John and Cicely, was probably turned thirty at the time of his father's death, and perhaps already married to Alice, daughter of John Haslewood of Maidwell, Northants, Esquire.1 His only brother John married her sister, Mary Haslewood. The mother of these ladies was Alice, daughter of Sir William Gascoyne, Knight. Their paternal grandfather, John Haslewood, is styled 'Master of the Fleete Prison' ; he married Katherine, daughter and heir of William Marmyon, of Kington, Lincolnshire, .... etc.
  • Pg.35
  • .... he escaped trouble by dying in 1559, the year following Queen Elizabeth's accession. But there is some likelihood that Mr. Bernard himself did not yet delight in the new order of things, which at its commencement had rendered his sister Dorothy an outcast, .... etc.
  • Francis Bernard and Alice, his wife, became the parents of twelve children, who lived to be men and women and married. They had also two daughters, who apparently died in their cradles. .... etc.
  • Pg.39
  • The alliances of Francis Bernard's daughters are subjoined seriatim in a note,2 as being too numerous and complicated for a more prominent position.
    • 1 .... etc.
    • 2 1. Catherine, married Ambrose Agard, of Broughton, gent, (meaning Broughton in Northamptonshire ; see Visitation).
    • 2. Jane = Richard, son and heir of Sir Richard Saltonstall, knight. This is probably a mistake for Saltonston. In the same volume Baker chronicles the marriage of Sir Richard Saltonston of 'Wardon' with 'Jane, dau. of . . .' and this couple had a son baptized 'Barnard.'
    • 3. Anne = 1. John Doyley, of Marton (or Merton), co. Oxon. = 2. Sir James Harrington, of Ridlington, co. Rutland. = 3. Sir Henry Pode, of co. Wilts.
    • 4. Elizabeth = 1. Thomas Harrison, of Northampton, gent. This family is called in the Visitation Harrison of Gobion's Manor. The manor was in the town of Northampton. = 2. Henry Favell, of Coventry.
    • 5. Magdalen = Thomas Danvers, of Banbury, co. Oxon, gent.
    • 6. Dorothy = Thomas Charnock, of Wellingborough, Northants, gent.
    • 7. Prudence = Richard Winhall, of co. Warwick.
    • .... etc.
  • Pg.40
  • As already stated, Francis Bernard had five sons ; but John, the eldest, was not living when his father sold Little Brington. He probably did not long survive his marriage with Dorothy, daughter of Francis Cave, of Baggrave, in Leicestershire, esquire,1 and died childless. .... etc.
  • .... Francis died in 1602 — just before the close of Queen Elizabeth's reign — at a ripe age, since he survived his father fifty-three and his mother forty-five years. Alice was living in 1610, at which time she had to bear a second great trouble alone, the death of her son Baldwin.
  • The five sons of Francis Bernard were :
  • 1. John, who predeceased his father, childless.
  • 2. Baldwin, the next lord of Abington Manor, and father of the last lord of his family.
    • .... etc.
  • Pg.41
  • 3. Francis of Kingsthorpe, ancestor of the Bernards of Huntingdon, and of Brampton, in Huntingdonshire.
  • 4. Thomas of Reading, ancestor of the Bernards of Nettleham, Lincohishire, and Nether Winchendon, Buckinghamshire.
  • 5. Richard of Astwood, Bucks, who, according to the pedigree, left no issue.1
  • .... etc.
