Ivelchester, 5th April 1749.
Thomas AMESBURY and High Littleton.
Upon reading an Order under the Hands and Seals of George HODGES and Roger LYDE, Esquires, two of his
Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County of Somerset (whereof one is of the Quorum) made for the
maintenance of a Male Bastard Child born of the Body of Mary PARSONS, Singlewoman, in the Parish of
High Littleton in the said County, wherein Thomas AMESBURY of High Littleton aforesaid is adjudged to be
the real Father of the said Male Bastard Child and ordered to pay unto the Churchwardens and Overseers of the
Poor of the said Parish of High Littleton, for and towards the maintenance of the said Bastard Child, the Sum of
one Shilling and six pence Weekly and every Week from the date of the said Order (which was made and dated
the Seventh day of March in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and forty eight) and so long as the
said Child should Live and be chargeable to the said Parish of High Littleton, with which Order the said Thomas
AMESBURY hath been duly and timely Served before this present Sessions as appears on due proof thereof
now made unto this Court. This Court therefore, on the Motion of Mr GOULD, as Counsel for the said Parish
of High Littleton, doth order that the said recited Order be confirmed, unless sufficient cause be shewn to the
Court by the End of this present Sessions and the same is hereby so confirmed accordingly.
SRO Q/SO12-64.

[Note: Mary dau. of Richard PARSONS & Sarah bapt. at High Littleton 8 Feb 1717/8.
John a base born child of Mary PARSONS by Thomas AMESBURY of the parish of Timsbury bapt. at High Littleton 24 Feb 1746/7.
In a list of Bonds etc. copied into the Poor Book started in 1754/5, it is recorded that Thomas AMESBURY gave a Bond to the Overseers
of High Littleton dated 12 March 1742, that an Order was made on Thomas AMESBURY in 1742 for the maintaining a Bastard Child and
that a Confirmation of the above Order from the Sessions was received in 1749. The 1742 dates are believed to be an error and 1748 was
probably intended.
Mary PARSONS was buried at High Littleton 21 Oct 1761.]
