Patricia Boen reports that the birth date of this Bernard born in 1526 is also named Richard like his son and two further generations of Bernards. Others, however, name him Francis. Patricia reports his son Richard born "before 1590." In 1590, the elder Richard would have been 54 years old. Patricia, as several other genealogies, do not report other children, so I initially had no gauge for the range of this family and the children's births. Richard Bernard, Born 1526 in England, Died 21 Oct 1602; No Father, No Mother; Spouse Alice Haselwood 1525-1612, Child Richard Bernard b 1590 -- Patricia Boen, http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/144143/person/-2119305867 Details in a genealogy on the Barker family clarifies the range in reporting the birth year of the son Richard as 1555. Richard Bernard, Born 1555 Abington, Northampton, England, Died 1613 in Turvey, Bedford, England; Marriage 1605 in Abington, Northampton, England to Elizabeth Woolhouse b 1572; Children John Bernard b 1604, Alice Bernard b 1607, Richard Bernard 1608-1651, Mary Barnard 1610-1654 -- Barker Tree, http://trees.ancestry.com/tree/321132/person/-2095924782 More information and the names of all the children are found in a genealogy by Carla Dye. Carla reports the name of the father, husband of Alice Haselwood/Hazelwood as Francis, rather than Richard. Further, she reports no child named Richard! The child tin her genealogy that would match Richard reported by some others as born in about 1555 is here named Thomas. One son here, born in 1558, is named after his father Francis.

However, the timing is a problem. I've seen several different dates for Margaret Benard [alternate spelling for Bernard in some sources] Gaines' birth, the most common one being around 1625. However Francis Bernard is supposed to have died in 1620. Francis was married twice, the first time to Mrs. William Mercer and it is my understanding, from looking at Napier-Higgins that they had two daughters. Then he married Mary Woolhouse who was the sister to Francis' brother Richard's wife Alice. I am descended from Richard and Alice. As far as I know, Francis Jr. did not have a daughter named Margaret. Mary's father was indeed Anthony Woolhouse. -- http://genforum.genealogy.com/bernard/messages/1391.html ==================================== Kinter tells us that Francis Bernard b abt 1553 DID have a brother Richard, who was, in fact, Kinter's direct ancestor. This name Richard is left out of the long list of children we have above. But some genealogies report Richard as the only son and as the husband of Elizabeth (or Mary) Woolhouse/Woodhouse. There may also be some confusion between the names of Alice Woodhouse, married to Francis' brother Richard, and Elizabeth Woodhouse, reported also as the wife of Richard, but in the position of this Francis whom Kinter reports as Richard's brother. It seems possible that two lines of Bernards are mixed here in some of the analyses and reconstructions of this family line.

I have found one genealogy which reports more credible information about the birth and death of John Bernard, father of John Barnette. This genealogy, however reports that the father of John Bernard was Richard Bernard, not William Bernard, as virtually all the others report. (I have not found a genealogy that reports a wife of William/John Bernard, but Christopher has a birth date for her.) This genealogy, by Christopher Barnette, reports a different date for the death of John Bernard, in 1709, a more credible date. He further reports a different date of birth, and different locations in Virginia for both birth and death. Due to the gross errors, generally lack of documentation and general lack of care in the majority of the other genealogies, I am inclined to trust this genealogy by Christopher Barnette, lacking further independent documentation. Other genealogies report that the wife of William/Jon Bernard/Barnett was Jane Rolphe. There is a discrepancy in Christopher's genealogy, where he reports both John Bernard and Jane Rolphe as parents of John Barnett, but has failed to connect them as spouses! The report for each one shows no spouse, though they are both tied to John as their son. No other children are reported. Christopher follows other genealogies in reporting that John's year of birth is the same year of death of his mother Jane Rolphe. Jane must have died in childbirth, though I have seen no direct reference to that. One thing that makes me a bit uncertain about the information in Christopher's genealogy is that he says that his John Bernard was born and died in the same county, Gloucester County, Virginia. Yet he reports, as the other genealogies, that John Bernard's son John Barnette was born in Goochland County. Christopher reports the following details for John Bernard, father of John Barnett.

The information here may not be for the correct Thomas Bernard. The name is common. A few genealogies provide some of the details, but confirming sources were not referenced for every fact.

There is some uncertainity among sources anmd analysts on whether this Col William Bernard is the son of Francis Bernard and Mary (Elizabeth) Wollhouse/Woodhouse. Most commentators and genealogists cpnoclude that this is the most likey famliy relationship. "Lucy Higginson married Col. William Bernard, son of Francis Bernard and Mary Woolhouse; 2nd husband. She married Col. Philip Ludwell, son of Thomas Ludwell and Jane Cottington; 3rd husband, 1st wife. She died on 6 Nov 1675.
