Fourteen months after, my second daughter Fanny was given to us a son followed in a year and a half, and a little daughter Amelia, a very sweet little creature, Spiritual and bright she also was snatched from us at nine years. My hopes rested on two when we left Wendover to settle at Melksham.
In 1792, Mr. Smith had written to Scrope Bernard asking his advice concerning the offer of a living in Lincolnshire - the name is not mentioned: his difficulty being that it would involve the renunciation of Wendover, and perhaps of Aston Abbots also, there being, even then, rules against holding livings above a certain value at great distances from each other. His work in Bucks was laborious, Since, in addition to Wendover, he officiated at Aston Abbots and also at the little church of St. Leonard's in Aston Clinton during a considerable number of years. In 1801 Melksham in Wilt Shire was bestowed, as Julia states, through the inﬂ:uence of Bishop Barrington, who had then quitted Salisbury for Durham, but had probably obtained a promise from the Dean and Chapter of his vacated See before his departure. At the instance of Thomas Bernard they added the Prebend of North Grantham in Salisbury Cathedral. This piece of preferment was worth only 30l. Per annum, and was there fore valuable mainly for the Slight increase of dignity it conferred.
