Regarding the question of whether Barthelmew had a second wife, Anne Amyas:

Barthelmew married Parnell Green in 1566, when he was 20, and Parnell died in August 1597. Barthelmew's will was dated a year later, in October 1597 and was proved 1598. The will mentions nieces, nephews, and brothers-in-law by name, but does not mention a wife. Therefore, it does not appear that he remarried after Parnell died. See summary here.


Born / christened at Navestock 21 March 1544/45 and died 7 August 1598 as per D/P 148/1/1 in the Navestock, Essex County Parish register.

I disconnected Anne Amyas as Barthelmew's wife, since I don't see any evidence that they were married, and no objection has been made to the proposal since I suggested it a year ago.
