Arthur Beverley
of Bickley, co. York, d. 1682.

Date of birth or baptism: say 1630.
Place of birth or baptism: Unknown.
As the eldest son of a 19 January 1628/9 marriage which had at least five children by 1640, Arthur Beverley must have been born fairly early in his parents' marriage.

Date of burial: 26 February 1681[/2].
Place of burial: Ebberston, co. York.
[Ebberston PR]

Father: Peter Beverley, b. say 1605, bur. Rillington, 16 April 1667.

m. soon after 10 November 1660, Mary Trott, who m. (2) Christopher Tyson.
On 10 November 1660, Peter Beverley of Rillington, gent., settled one oxgang of land in Rillington on his son Arthur prior to Arthur's marriage to Mary, daughter of Robert Trott of Bickley [HUMAD, ref. DDLG/29/35].

On 12 February 1682[/3], Mary Beverlay administered the estate of Arthur Beverlay of Bickley, deceased, whose minor children were Mary Beverlay, Phillip Beverlay, John Beverlay, and Isabell Beverlay [Dean of York peculiar, FHL film #99,352]. Some older children who died young appear in the Rillington parish registers.

Arthur Beverley, bp. Rillington, 5 February 1664[/5], evidently d. young.
[Rillington PR] See the comment under Peter Beverley.

Peter Beverley, bp. Rillington, 27 January 1666[/7], evidently d. young.
[Rillington PR] A son of Arthur Beverley whose name is illegible was buried at Rillington on 20 July 1670, and was presumably either Arthur or Peter. As neither Arthur nor Peter appears among the list of Arhtur Beveley's minor children on 12 February 1682/3, they both presumably died young.

Mary Beverley, b. say 1668;
m. soon after 12 April 1690, Thomas Frier, of Hackness.
On 12 Apr. 1690, Thomas Frier of Hackness, intending to marry Mary, daughter of Arthur and Mary Beverley, requested that Thomas Taylor pay Mary's share of 20, part of 60 owed by said Thomas Taylor to Philip, Mary, and Isabel, children of Arthur and Mary Beverley [HUMAD, ref. DDLG/29/17]. The parish registers of Ebberston show the marriage on 29 April 1690 of Thomas Freer and Mary Consit. Could Mary Beverley have previously been married to a Mr. Consit?

Philip Beverley, bp. Rillington, 16 December 1669.
The Rillington parish registers and bishop's transcripts both give 16 December 1669 as his date of baptism [Rillington BT; Rillington PR], but the YPRS transcripts wrongly give 17 December [Rillington PRT].

John Beverley, b. say 1671.

Isabella Beverley, bp. Rillington, 16 February 1672[/3], bur. Ebberston, 20 December 1715;
