Eleanor Mompesson was daughter and co-heir of Thomas Mompesson Esq. of Brewham. Her handwritten notes feature in the fly-leaf of the Newman-Rogers' Bible, in which she lists the names, dates and times of birth of her nine children. These dates have been recorded above, some of which required correction of earlier information. Most significantly, she records having only one son by the name of Thomas, born in 1693, and since Thomas Newman is recorded in Chancery Proceedings C 11/625/31 dated 23 Nov 1742, I deduce that my previous information about a baby Thomas born in 1692 dying in infancy must have been wrong. Similarly Richard Newman of Horsington is also recorded in the same Proceedings, so I have placed his date of death as being after 1742. Eleanor must have been a very fortunate lady or a very good mother, since it must have been very unusual for so many children in one family to survive childhood. Notwithstanding, at least three of her children predeceased her.
