I am searching for information or anecdotal reference relating to the 17CRev. Thomas Temple DCL & LLD (Oxon), 'of Bourton-on-the-Water' (Qu. was he really made Bishop of Bristol after the Restoration, as I have read? Did he take up this appointment? ) I am looking for the dates & dates & names of descendants of this third son of Sir Thomas Temple of Stowe. In particular,w h owas his wife? How many children did he have & their dates?
We find him mentioned in the Will of his mother, Lady Hester Sandys Temple. His line & descendants are carefully outlined in the Will of his nephew Sir Richard Temple of Stowe, dated 1687, with later Codicils. This Willthrows up the names ofseveral Thomas Temples = Thomas Temple of Old Street - Thomas Temple of Weymouth, Thomas Temple of Sarum. Can Thomas Temple of Old Street (presumably in London) be identified?
It is Thomas Temple of Weymouth whose wife Elizabeth - and, specifically, hisy o u n g children - mentioned in Codicils, who receive special attention in the above Will. Are there further mentions of this family in later, 18C Temple Wills? Is there any reliable documentation [birth, baptismal & burial records or history] that follows the descendants of thisRev. Dr. Thomas Temple through subsequent generations?
