I finally found out who the parents of Increase Nowell are.They are Alexander Nowell and Sara Smythe of Sheldon, Warwickshire, England.They were married there in 1592 and Encrease (as it lists in the parish records) was born in August 1593. Alexander was born in 1571 and died in 1596 when Encrease was three and is buried in Sheldon.Alexander's mother was either Elinor Shuttleworth or Julianne Glassgill. Alexander father was Christopher Nowell. Christopher's father was Roger Nowell mother was Grace Townley.They all came from Lancashire.Alexander may have been in Sheldon because his cousin there was Lawrence, Dean of Litchfield, Nowell. If anyone would like to talk about this or share information, please e-mail me at email@example.com I have source numbers for the film and book I found this information in.
