and maybe Francis. According to Harold Biggs, Francis Scott drowned in the Thames on 28th Jun 1699, together with his cousin John Oxenham. Or could it have been Frances rather than Francis?

Notes: Much of the information given above comes from the 1695 Codicil to the Will of Richard Newman (1620-1695). See also transcript of the Codicil and summary of the transcript.

Elizabeth's name first came to me from Tony Newman's "GEDCOM" file: Fifehead.ged. It was subsequently confirmed by Di Clements who came up with "Somerset Wills Sixth Series Will of Sir Charles Harbord 1678: My daughter, Elizabeth Warre. My son-in- law Richard N." and also from Somerset Wills Fifth Series, the will of Thomas Warre of Shepton Beauchamp 1694, whose inheritors were his "son and heir Thomas Warre, his grandfather Richard Newman, my wife Cicely Warre".

An additional reference in Somerset Wills Fifth Series gives the name Dorothy to Elizabeth's daughter in reference to the Will of her cousin Richard Newman of Evercreech.

Another reference (Anne Harbord's will?) indicates Elizabeth's children were Anne, William(?), Elizabeth and Thomas (but no mention of Dorothy - why?).

According to Harold Biggs' researches, Elizabeth died before her husband, and was buried in Shepton Beauchamp Church, Co. Somerset, leaving four children Anne, William, Elizabeth and Thomas Warre. Her husband's will is dated 24 Oct 1685 and administration was granted 26 Jan 1686. A second wife, Cicely, survived him. This is contradicted by the evidence of Richard Newman's will which indicates that Thomas Warre died before Elizabeth, leaving her to remarry Edward Scott.
