Help with Thomas Bernard d. 16 May 1680 - Burke's 107th Ed.Pg 489
« on: Monday 11 June 18 06:32 BST (UK) »
I am hoping someone would be able to help find information on Thomas Bernard (wife Sybil Brackstone I believe) died  16 May 1680 and it seems that he is mentioned in Burke's Peerage 107th Edition  Page 489. 

Unfortunately I cannot retrieve anymore information.  He is my 10th Great Grandfather so very keen to learn more about him and his family line.

Any help will be gratefully received.

Thanks,
Karen > DEFINOS

Hello
I also descend from the Bernard/Barnard family.
Through my 11th grt grandmother Eleanor Barnard.
She married Samuel Cotton Esq of Dadlington.
She was the daughter of Sir John Barnard of Abington, Northamptonshire 1604-1674 and his wife Elizabeth Edmondes daughter of Sir Clement Edmondes.

Are your Bernards of Northamptonshire? I know one branch were Baronets.
Have you checked Visitations for the county Thomas is living in?
Dudley of Cosby/Odstone - Gentry Land Owners
Bent of Cosby - Lords of the Manor and Gentry
Swynfen of Sutton Cheney- Gentry Land Owners
Cotes of Aylestone - Gentry Land Owners
Halford of Wistow - Baronets & Gentry Land Owners
Cotton of Dadlington - Gentry Land Owners
Elkington of Wistow - Yeoman & Gentry Merchants
Barnard of Abington - Gentry & Lords of the Manor
Billings of Rolleston/Cottingham - Gentry & Yeoman
