    p. 63: 'GEORGE KEMPTON, ... perhaps married second St Botolph Bishopgate, London 11 June 1589 MARY JERSEY, perhaps the Mary Jersey baptized Enfield, Middlesex 28 February 1573/4, ... perhaps daughter of JOHN and MARY (HODGE) JERSEY.'
    p. 64: 'The parentage of Mary Jersey is not yet established. She may well have been connected to the family of Jersey of Enfield, Middlesex; the surname is quite rare. John and Mary (Hodge) Jersey of Enfield were parents of a daughter Mary baptized there 28 February 1573/4 (no parents' names on the parish register's entry of the baptism), but this child would have reached only the age of fifteen by June 1589.'

    MARRIAGES

    1589 11 Jun. George Kempton = Mary Jersey'
    p. 64: 'The move from St Botolph Bishopsgate to Berwick is not immediately easy to explain. That George's son Manassas was baptized just six [sic] months after the marriage and that Mary was perhaps just 15 may have provided some motivation.'

    Manasseh was actually baptized 8 months after the marriage. Presumably the math was done at an earlier point in the research when one of the dates was assumed to be 2 months different, due to old style vs. new style dates.
