      The Father - WILLIAM BEVINGTON 1642 - 8th September 1721
      "He was, whilst a boy, convinced of the principles of the Friends by the preaching of George Fox. While giving thanks before supper, at Lamcoat Farm House, near Ettington in the year 1661, which was called preaching at a conventicle, he was with 10 others arrested and taken to Warwick Jail. He must have been detained there for over 10 years, as his name appears in the pardon granted on the `13th September, 1672 for those in prison on religious grounds."
