      Note:
      This branch of the family were Catholics and were in constant trouble with the authorities on account of their failure to attend upon the services of the Established Church of England. The family of Brent divided at this time in their religious adherence the same as the Horsley-London branches of the Horsley family of Pershall. In the Royalist papers (State Papers, Domestic, G 72, pages 231, 276 and 285) appears the following:-January 25, 1654-5. Order for search to be made in the old books as to the sequestration of the manor of Larkstoke, Co. Gloucester, for the Recusancy of Richard Brent the elder, deceased, or of Foulke Brent, Richard Brent the younger, Edward Brent, George Brent, Anne Brent and Jane Brent, children of said Richard Brent the elder...When the children were summoned to take the [loyalty] oath there appeared only Mrs Anne Brent and she refused to take it. The estate was therefore continued under sequestration, all of them being known papists. Dated at Gloucestor May 10, 1653. It was an important fact in our family history that this branch of the Brent family were Roman Catholics and the friends of the Calverts and the Lords Baltimore." (Pearsalls pp 994-996)
