    • Note:
      'Sir William Brownlow was a brother of that Sir John Brownlow of Belton who recommended mares milk for conception; no such expedient was necessary in the case of his wife, Elizabeth Duncombe. William Brownlow kept a meticulous record of her child-bearing from 27 June 1626 when their first child Richard was born, who died in October of that year, down to the birth of their nineteenth child twenty-two years later; a daughter who lived - unmarried - till 1726. One third of this vast progeny survived - two sons and four daughters - which on a larger scale was something like the average survival rate for upper- amd middle-class families of the time, in so far as it can be estimated.

      At one point, between 1638 and 1646, seven children, born at almost exactly yearly intervals, died in a row; Thomas, Francis, Benjamin, George, James, Maria and Anne. William Brownlow's exclamations of grief as each new tragedy struck show some attempt at reconciliation to the workings of providence - "Though my children die, the Lord liveth and they exchange but a temporal life for an eternal one" - but absolutely no diminution in grief. Little George, for example, his fifteenth child, managed to live from October 1641 to 29 July of the following year; when he died, his father wrote: "I was at ease but Thou O God hast broken me asunder and shaken me to pieces." That was doubtless the truth. Parents, in their heart of hearts, could not reconcile themselves to a doctrine which left the little one happier in heaven - and their arms empty.'
