Designer Jeans has found the following references to the Berdesly/Beardsley family, though she admits that they are all probably rather late

Hello, can anyone verify this IGI found by Designer Jeans for John, baptized on January 22, 1577, in North Wingfield, son of Richard Fowke? These Fowkes would be a couple of generations ahead of Thomas Fowke/Foulke (c1624-1714) and his father, also Thomas, of Holmgate, North Wingfield. Any identification of these Fowkes and their possible relationship to the Thomas Fowke father and son of Holmgate would be much appreciated.

Can anyone please identify Thomas Fulkes, minister of Boulsover in 1649, from John Charles Cox, "Three Centuries of Derbyshire annals: as illustrated by the Records of the Quarter Sessions of the County of Derby", Volume 2, page 146.
Also, probably the same person as above, Thomas Foulkes, who held the vicarage of Bolsover in 1650, and was returned as "disaffected", from "Notes on the Churches of Derbyshire", Vol.1, "the Hundred of Scarsdale", page 105, by J Charles Cox.
This man was contemporary with Thomas Fowke/Foulke (c1624-1714) and his father Thomas, of Holmgate, North Wingfield.

Hello to all. Marp, Designer Jeans, and I have recently been examining the will of Thomas Fowkes, Clerk of Bolsover, proved Feb. 1, 1656, and so far we have found that, besides being a clerk, and possibly the same as Thomas Fulkes minister of Bolsover 1649, and Thomas Foulkes the "disaffected" vicar of Bolsover in 1650, that he was a wealthy landowner, and, of course, contemporary and close by to Thomas Fowke/Foulke (c1624-1714), of Holmgate, and his father Thomas of Holmgate, also. He has a brother Simon listed, yeoman and one of his executors, daughter Mary, sons John (with wife Martha), Thomas, and Francis. Some of the other executors and some of his land appear to be in the East Cambridge/Norfolk/Suffolk area, where there is a recorded ffolkes family, not to be confused with the Falke/Faux family also living around there. Would anyone please have a complete transcription of that 1656 will listed in The National Archives, and know anything further about the relatives and ancestry of Thomas of Bolsover, Thank You so kindly.

Have found that Thomas Fowkes, Clerk of Bolsover, in his will proved Feb. 1, 1656, left his son Thomas all of his corn, cattle, closes (?), ploughed and other ...fees of husbandry, and all the manure (!) in the several fields belonging to him, besides the right of tenanting.
Nothing is heard of son Thomas after this date, but in 1659 my Thomas Fowke/Foulke (c1624-1714), of Holmgate, is conveyed land in North Wingfield, could there be a connection between him and son Thomas ffaulkes of Bolsover, or just the coincidence of having the same name?

HEARTH TAX, from Derbyshire Archaeological Society publication by David Edwards, entries for

BOLSOVER 1670- Widow Foulkes taxed on 4 fireplaces. (Appears to be Martha, the widow of John, son of Thomas Fowkes, Clerk of Bolsover, will proved Feb. 1, 1656. Of his three sons, John, Thomas, and Francis, by 1670 in this area of Derbyshire, John and Francis are not mentioned at all, and only one Thomas is mentioned nearby, below,)
 
STRETTON 1670- Thomas Fouke taxed on 1 fireplace. (Appears to be Thomas Fowke/Foulke, (c1624-1714), of Holmgate). Any connection to Bolsover ffaulkes family? Would appreciate more information on both of these Fowkes families, of Bolsover, and Holmgate, North Wingfield, to see if this is possible, Thank You.
