    Plaintiff in a case brought against William Wotton 
    • It seems that William was in debt, Stephen yielded to pleading to help William out - and then William was dishonest about what had been agreed.
      However, I have only found the bill of complaint, not a reply, so we don't know William's view of things.
      Nor (as yet) have I looked for any decrees or orders.

    Goldsmith 
    • Stephen is described as a goldsmith of Dartmouth when he brought a complaint in the Court of Chancery against his brother-in-law William Wotton in 1652. However, his own son Joseph who also became a goldsmith was apprenticed to Stephen's brother George, a goldsmith in Exeter.

    Father Stephen KNOWLING,   b. Est 1580,   d. Yes, date unknown 
    Married
    • Children from this marriage:
      I have gone thro St Saviour's PR for baptisms Oct 1604 - Jan 1616-7, only extra found (over using FMP search) was son Stephen.
      Still to find: Sarah and Mary - and possibly others
      Maybe born elsewhere before Stephen and his wife moved to Dartmouth St Saviours? Could simply be another Dartmouth parish - St Clements and St P etrox PRs don't survive from this time.
