#919 1493 offering evidence of the baptism of William
RE: William Temse (s) (h) Robert Temse:
Wiltshire: He was born at Netherhavyn and baptised in
the parish church there on the Feast of St Lucy The
Virgin 13-Dec-11 Edw IV (1472)
John Bulkeley (A juror age 50 and more), William
Cosen, and Joan Bulcley widow being gossips. The
godfathers disputed which of them should give the
child his own name, and William Cosen to have the
naming agreed to give the said John Bulkley a gallon
of wine which he paid;
And because there was no wine in Netherhavyn, Richard
Couchyn (A Juror age 52 and more), rode a black horse
to Ambresbury to fetch it, was thrown on his way back,
and a jug full, or nigh half a gallon, was spilt etc.
His lands of inheritance were, by grant from King
Edward IV in the custody of John Boteler.
The name of Bulkley being spelt three different ways
within a short document is a reminder of the problem
of identifying individuals with certainty.
