  • Notes  Married:
    • Gyles and Elizabeth's marriage was recorded in the Iddesleigh parish register, as was the birth of their daughter Jane. The 3 sons were mentioned in Gyles's brother Hugh's will, written in 1688, but not his own, written in 1697/8, 10 years later. The daughter Jane was mentioned in Gyles's will, but only in relation to a "renunciation", whatever that meant. It is possible that the sons were dead, but that doesn't seem likely. All of Gyles's possessions were given to his wife, so that could explain why the sons were not mentioned. Jane didn't receive anything, and she was clearly alive.

    Marriage Bond:
    • It is not clear from the text of the Bond why Gyles posted it before his marriage to Elizabeth.
