Thomas Bere
m. Ann Flamock (dau of Richard Flamock of Bucarne)
1. Thomas Bere
  m. Elinor Clements (dau/coheir of Thomas Clements, widow of John Roscarrock)
  A. William Bere of Trevedo
  m. ?? Bond (dau/heir of John Bond)
  i. Thomas Bere of Trevedo
m. Sibell Doyngell (dau/heir of John Doyngell of Benethwood by Jane Corington)
  It seems that either there must be some missing generations or there has been some other confusion. It appears that Sibell's grandmother lived around the end of the 14th and/or beginning of the 15th century. However, the next generation below shows people who died early in the 17th century. It could well be that the problem lies within the record of the Doyngell family rather than here but something looks odd.
