Notes for Francis BERNARD

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,

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,

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.

Francis Jr married Mary Woolhouse and they had several children. 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.

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.

Many genealogies appear to have copied each other in the error of reported
John/William with the same death date as his son John, the date when John's
will was probated, 21 September 1756.  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

Notes for Thomas BERNARD

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.  Details fit with what is know about his
parents.  Dates for his birth vary from 1555 tro 1557.

Notes for William BERNARD

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. She died
on 16 Nov 1675 at Virginia."
