This is again Frances Wray (d 1634) sister of Isabel who was married first to Sir George St Paul of Snarford (c 1562-1613) but then became the second wife of Robert Rich, the first Earl of Warwick (1559-1618) two years before his death.

I am always amazed what is all available on the internet. A few years ago, I wrote a paper for Dr. Richard A. Muller on Richard Bernard's exposition of Ruth in light of his theoretical work on preaching, etc., and now I find a whole blog dedicated to him!

Glad to find someone else out there interested in Bernard. I discovered him in a similar way doing some work under Jeff Jue at Westminster. I have several blogs and poor RB has been rather neglected of late. I must get back to it.
