..... this Lawrence Genge was a son of the Rev. Thomas Genge, vicar at St.Mary's, Piddleton, and the composer of the epitaph to Alice, widow of Robert Bartlett alias Hancock; whilst Edith was a daughter of Thomas & Edith who left Piddleton to make their home at Pendomer.
..... In 1551 Robert Genge of Piddleton, and unquestionably brother of Lawrence, married Eleanor Paulett, daughter of Thomas, Lord Paulett of Mosterton Manor, 5 miles distant from Pendomer. This is another link between both places and both families... and offers an interesting similarity between "Paulett" and "Paul" , the Pendomer family those ancestor Tremor Paul is buried at Piddleton and whose descendants married with Bartletts including that of Emily Dommett Paul to Robert Bartlett, the compiler's great grandfather!.
