      Lord of the Manor of Broadhurst, Sussex. When «b»Arthur«/b» died, his mother did not wish his widow to remarry, and so deprive the family of her great fortune. «u»«b»Margaret Pole, Countess Salisbury«/u»«/b» and her son, «u»«b»Henry Pole, 1st Baron Montague «/u»«/b», bethought themselves of a good way out of the difficulty. They forced the widow to become a novice. The lady had no wish to proceed farther in the religious life, so she betook herself to «b»William Barlow«/b», the new Bishop of St. Asaph, who was residing in his priory of Bisham, where the Poles had one of their country houses. She said to «b»Bishop Barlow«/b», '«i»Can I leave the veil at pleasure?«/i»'; '«i»Yes, for all religious persons have a time of probation. You are only a novice and could leave your nun's weeds at your pleasure. I bind you no further...«/i»', he said. The lady took the bishop's advice, and married «b»Sir William Barentyne«/b». A few years later (1543), in fear of being prosecuted under the Act of the Six Articles, she and her husband were obliged to procure an Act of Parliament to declare their children legitimate.
