Research Notes

Removed birth date of 24 Oct 1650 from birth field. There is a baptism for sister Anne (Punchard) Bardwell (bef.1650-abt.1726) on that date at Wingfield but not Catherine. The Visitation of England and Wales gives a baptism date for Catherine of 8 February 1663/4 at Bedingfield.

Catherine Punchard died in July 1680 in Bedingfield, Suffolk, England, when she was 29 years old. (Source needed)
