Notes

Ewence seems to be mixed in with Ewens as a surname, so this name is worth looking up too.

    HISTORY OF THE CHURCH OF ST PETER & ST PAUL, KINGS SOMBORNE (Hampshire)
    ...
    "In 1536 Thomas Cromwell ordered parishes to keep a record of births, marriages, and deaths, an order that was widely disregarded; in 1597 it was enacted that earlier entries should be transcribed into parchment books. In this parish the entries go back to November 1567, all the entries till 1597 being made at one time. There are 24 entries for 1568: from then until 1600 the number fluctuates between 22 and 24 with a marked preponderance of births, except in 1587, when there were 10 baptisms, 2 marriages, and 10 burials, five of them in one week in May. Whether famine, pestilence, or chance accounted for this is a matter for speculation. Some names, such as Ewence, occur that are still well known in the village. A note in the register book says that on October 23rd, 1620, Alice Higgins Sturt of London, born in this village, gave the sum of 4 to the church for the poor of the parish. This first register ends in 1631; its successors are missing so there is no record of whether the village was struck by the plague that afflicted Winchester but touched the surrounding villages lightly.
