Thomas Bard and Mary Gott were married by license, she being 17 years and he 25 years of age. So born about 1644 and 1636 respectively). He is given as son of Maximillian Bard.
Mary's father Samuel Gott appointed Thomas Bard as sole executor to his will in 1671.
Samuel Gott's wife Joan (Farnden) mentions her daughter Mary Bard (deceased) and husband Thomas Bard in her will dated 1680 together with five children - Maximillian, Thomas, Mary, Jacob and Elizabeth.
From the fact that Mary is ot mentioned in the following deed, which refers to the heirs of Peter Farnden, I would imagine she died before July 1674:
1 Jul 1674 [from Scope and Content]:
Between WALTER DOBELL of Street, esq., and SARAH his wife and THOMAS BARD of Cheapside, London, citizen, EDWARD POLHILL of Burwash, esq., JOHN BAKER of Mayfeild, esq., and JOHN GODMAN of Canon Street, London, citizen, to lead the use of a Recovery of the manor of Westmeston alias Stantons and the moiety of the manor of Middleton and other premises as in deed of 12 June 1665 (SAS-M/1/551). As to a part of Westmeston Common in the tenure of Michael Martin and John Beal to the use of the said W. D. As to the remainder of the premises, after the death of the said W. D. and Sarah, to the use of said Edw. Polhill, John Baker and John Godman in trust to raise portions for Sarah, eldest daughter, Peter, 2nd son, and Lucy, a younger daughter, of the said W.
