      A conveniently ignored fact among those researching the Wiveliscombe Bennetts is that the parish records state that Thomas Bennett, son of Thomas Bennett, was buried on 23 Dec 1608. It seems safe to assume that this was the same Thomas born to Thomas in Wiveliscombe and christened on 29 Nov 1603. If this is accurate, the Thomas who married Anges Beard could not have been that person. Interestingly, there was a Thomas Bennett, son of Thomas and Agnes, christened in Bridgwater, which is located about 15 miles away, on 22 March 1606 (England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975). And we have another Thomas son of Thomas Bennett christened at Portishead, Somerset, just northwest of Bristol, on 20 November 1605 (England Births and Christenings, 1538-1975). But without knowing just when he was christened, we can't know who is father was.
