  • A child's birth date (Basset-374 born 1589) should not be before a parent is six years old (Evans-3402 born 1586).
  • A mother's death date (Vaughan-480 died 1575) should not be before one of her children's birth dates (Evans-3402 born 1586).

The dates of this line are in question - off by about a generation from the Gateway Ancestor John Bevan (Bevan-62), whose 1725 will was said to be proved (1726) when he was 80 - placing his birth at 1646. His wife Barbara Aubrey was born 1637. His parents were married 1664.

Mary is 20 degrees from George Bush, 21 degrees from Rick San Soucie and 16 degrees from Victoria of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland on our single family tree. Login to find your connection.
