["Robert Awdons ? yeoman, Hutton Bushell, and Elizabeth Wilson, spinster, 21, Scarborough - at Hutton Bushel." Paver's ML (1630-1714), 40: 134; "Awdons" should alomst certainly be read as "Awdous"]

This second marriage is proven by the probate act of Robert Audas on 14 November 1661, in which the will was proved by Elizabeth Jordan alias Awdus, relict of the deceased, now wife of Francis Jordan [Dickering Act Book, FHL film #100,000]. Further proof is given by the will of the younger Robert Audas [transcribed on the page of the elder Robert Audas], naming the younger Francis Jordan as a brother, and by the burial record of William Audas ("Oadis"), where he is called a "son" of Francis Jordan [Reighton BT].
