The elder daughter [of Thomas [Traheron/Traherne, Master of King's College School, Cambridge], Jane, was born on Friday 16 May, and baptized on Thursday May, 1679. On 12 June 1718 she married, rather late, Rawlin Raven 'Gent.' at Wimborne Minster, and, a little surprisingly, gave birth on 4 March to a son called Rawlin.

Thomas [Traheron/Traherne, Master of King's College School, Cambridge] was born on Monday 4 July, and baptized on Sunday 17 July, 1681. He attended Eton, and King's College, Cambridge, where he died of smallpox on 3 December 1710.

Susanna was born at Salisbury on Tuesday 13 March, ...
