  1. [S2328] "The Ayars Family Historical Association," http://ayars.com/ayars/D0091/I2.html. "The sole known witness to this woman's existence to date is her tombstone in the Newport Common Burial Ground. Located next to the graves of Stephen and Ann Mumford, Katharin's epitaph states that she was the wife of Robert Ayars. The epitaph further states that she died on the 22 February 1684/5 at age 42, which would place her birth in the year 1642. The gravestone itself was carved by William Mumford (who also carved the gravestones of Stephen and Ann Mumford and the Mumford children). Given these dates, Katharin was the mother of all of Robert's children except Caleb and Joshua. [Perhaps Stephen, also, who calls Esther Bowen-Ayars his mother in his will, 1746.]"
  2. The Ayres Family Historical Association reports that "in the records of St Marylebone Church, Marylebone, London, England, there is a record of the marriage of Robert Eyrs to Catherine Taylor on 24 October 1672. This church is located on Marylebone Road, across from Regency Park, London."
