    • Now South Pool PRs only survive from 1664/5; Vivian cites the PRs, presumably in his day they did survive, giving the date of the marriage as 21 Apr 1635. Only about a quarter of the BTs survive and these do not include 1634 or 5.
      Fortunately a contempory record concerning the marriage does survive in a marriage settlement which is accompanied by various documents, mainly letters between William's great uncle William Bastard (to whom this younger William was heir) and Johanna's father Sampson.  
      Children
      An entry was slipped in in the PR amongst records of 1657 births, recording an Agnis daughter of William on 17 Oct 1657 - this William or another? Not looked thoroughly at what Williams there were at the same time, but a Joan buried in 1662 was shown as the daughter of William Bastard Glover; this could well be Agnis' father.

      Were there really two sons called Julius? Vivian shows 2, but only has a baptism for one, and I haven't found a second baptism either. So I'm not sure, though there clearly were 2 Juliuses. If they were brothers they must both have been living at the same time; not unknown at this time but not common. The will of the one for whom probate was granted in 1692 is said to have been brother of Walter; since this will appears not to survive we can't check this. Although there were several Bastard families in West Alvington at this time only the Garston clang were referred to as gentry etc. The 1665 burial of a Julius does describe him as 'gent' - I wonder if he could have been a young son of William, the son of William and Johane? On the other hand perhaps they did give the name to two sons, perhaps because the first was sickly and not expected to survive.
    Marriage Settlement 3 May 1634 
    • Catalogue entry shows the Marriage settlement was for the marriage of William Bastard to Johan Hele, for lands in Stockingham.
      The parties to the settlement were:

      1 William Bastard of Gerston, West Alvington, esq, Nicholas Gilferd of Bowringsleigh, esq and William Bastard of West North, Cornwall, esq

      and

      2 Sir Francis Glanville of Tavistock and Sampson Hele of Gnaton
