    Notes 
    • William Squire was rector of Charlton Mackrell, Somerset (3 miles south of Barton St. David), as early as 1545, when he was mentioned in the will of Rev. George Levermore, vicar of Charlton Adam, one mile away, 21 Sep 1545, proved Dec 1545. During the reign of "Bloody Mary", the Catholic Queen (1553-1558), a list was drawn up of all married clergymen in England and they were ordered to divorce their wives. In 1553 Rev. Squire refused.

      A record has been found dated 10 April 1554, drawn up at the time of his being deprived of his benefice. By this William "Squyer", rector of Charlton Mackrell, was described as aged 52, as having married Alice Skarlett three years before and was ordered to be deprived of his parish. Squire may possibly be identified with the William Squyer/Squyre recorded as minister at Wellington, Somerset in 1524 and 1532, but he was evidently not a graduate and it is unlikely that his ancestry can be traced further.
