16164 Rev. William SQUIRE, 11G Grandfather. Born abt 1520. Died in Charlton Mackrell, Somersetshire, England, abt 1567.

According to Bartlett,89 Rev. William Squire, "born as early as 1520, was rector of Charlton Mackrell, Somersetshire, as early as 1545, as appears by the will of Rev. George Levermore, vicar of Charlton Adam, dated 21 Sept. 1545, proved 11 Dec. 1545, which left certain goods to 'William Squyre, parson of Charleton Macarell.' (Wells Probate Registry, vol. 12, p. 104.) During the reign of 'Bloody Mary' (1553-1558) a list was made of all the married clergy in England, and they were ordered to divorce their wives to conform to the Roman Catholic law of clerical celibacy. At the annual ecclesiastical visitation of Charlton Mackrell in 1554, the church wardens presented that 'William Squyer was marryed and doth mynister ageyne, not separated.' He is not mentioned in Weaver's 'Somerset Incumbents,' in which the roll for Charlton Mackrell is imperfect from 1503. But he probably died in 1567, as on 15 Sept. 1567, John Sprynt was inducted to the rectory of Charlton Mackrell, 'made vacant by the death of the last incumbent.'"

Bartlett does not identify a wife for William Squire, but various websites give her name as Margaret Mar. The basis for this identification is not known.
