  • Name Rose BASTARD 
    Relationshipwith Teresa Ann GOATHAM
    Born Bef 1695 
    • Since Rose's baptism has not been found at Churchstow I guess she was baptised before the gap in the surviving PRs; they resume in 1695. Probably born after 1683, as not one of the 2 daughters of Bevill named in the lease of 1683/4, nor was she named in the earlier lease of 1682 when nephews were named instead of children of Bevill himself.
    Gender Female 
    Died Aft 1708 
    • Living, named as Rose Bastard suggesting she was not married, when her uncle Richard Rose wrote his will
    Notes 
    • (Research):It may have been Rose who married Thomas ROSE ( currently shown as an unnamed sister of Rose)

    Married Est 1674 
    • I suspect Bevill and Elizabeth married in about 1674. On 19 October that year Bevill, his brother William and Elizabeth were the 3 lives on a lease of land in Churchstow, as described in a draft licence to assign the lease after Bevill's death (catalogue entry). These arrangements were often made in preparation for marriage, and the lack of a child of Bevill and Elizabeth as one of the lives suggests this was one such.

      Although the earliest surviving Churchstow PR dates from 1543, there is a large gap in the C17th, from 1653 or 4 to 1694 for baptisms and marriages. At first when I could not find their marriage I thought that Bevill had probably married 'Elizabeth' in Churchstow and that gap in the PRs explained the lack of a record. Now knowing she was from Dorset, and a bit about the family, the most likely marriage place would be Wootton Fitzpaine. The marriage PRs there only survive from 1677 and BTs from 1731, so if they were married there the only hope of evidence is a marriage licence.

      Churchstow missing years probably include the baptisms of most of the children of Bevill and Elizabeth. I have looked at the surviving BTs but these cover only 5 of the missing years and neither their marriage nor a child's baptism is in those few surviving BTs.

      The lack of children named in a lease of 1682 suggests that any children born by then had not survived, or maybe were so young that the period of high mortality had not passed (I'm not sure if people took this into account when choosing the lives for leases),
      I have identified 5 children from this marriage, a son baptized in 1696, i.e. in the period for which the PRs do survive and 4 daughters, two named in a lease some 12 years earlier, the third left a bequest by her mother's brother Richard in a will written in 1708 and the 4th, Ann, from a combination of events. It seems highly likely that other children were born in the intervening years. One or two burials in Churchstow could be children of Bevill and Elizabeth (a William Bastard was buried 18 Aug 1698, Sarah 29 May 1699).
      Although I appear to show a 6th child, without a Christian name, she could be one of the children I do know of.
