    A window in the Pollard aisle [of Bishop?s Nympton church?] formerly portrayed the judge with eleven sons kneeling behind him, and his wife with eleven daughters. About this Prince relates a pleasant tale: That his lady, glassing this window in her husband's absence at the Term in London, caused one child more than she then had to be set there; presuming, having had one and twenty already, and usually conceiving at her husband's coming home, that she should have another. Which, inserted in expectation, came to pass in reality." (Prince, Worthies of Devon, 641.)
