marriage not found. It would seem possible that the "Margaret Spenser, widow," who was buried at Stotfold 19 Dec 1635 was the widow of Thomas, but the Rev. Mr. Holding identifies her as the daughter of Thomas who had married a Spencer.
i. Anthony, m. at Stotfold, 7 Feb 1632/3, Katherine Hills.
ii. Gerard, bapt. at Stotfold, 20 Sept. 1601; m. there, 4 Aug 1628, Joan Hills, who was bur. at Stotfold, 12 Aug 1649.
iii. Thomas, received by will of his uncle Richard lands near St. Albans, Herts.
iv. Richard, according to Mr. Holding was named in the will of his uncle Richard, but he does not appear in the detailed abstract given by Mr. Waters (supra); hence the existence of such a son in the family of Thomas remains to be verified.
v. Margaret, named as deceased in the will of her uncle Richard in 1646. According to Mr. Holding, she m. 22 Nov 1629, Simon Spencer, son of Thomas and ___ (Halliday) Spencer, of a different Spencer line; left two children, mentioned but not named in the will of Richard Spencer, of whom one was Anna, bapt. 20 Oct 1630. She may be the Margaret Spencer, widow, who was buried at Stotfold 19 Dec 1635, but the entry may conceivably probably pertain to her mother, whose given name is not known.There's a marriage in Bedford St Mary on 22 Oct 1629 between Simon Spencer and Margaret Syemds or Symonds. Did the Rev. get it wrong?
