Edward Seward and Anne Lister were married in Adel Parish, Yorkshire in 1626. A child was born to them in 1627, but was a daughter named Elizabeth. This is also found in the records of Adel Parish. No other child named Seward was recorded. I have been looking for several years and have found no records (other than his own assertion), birth, baptismal, or otherwise, to confirm Lt. William Seward's birthplace or parentage. The records of St. Leonard's Parish, Bristol, which might have contained these data, have apparently been lost.
