I see I have not expressed myself clearly enough:
Jeremy's youngest child was baptised in 1626, and we may therefore
posit a birth of circa 1626. If Audrey was her mother, then Audrey
must still have been of child-bearing age circa 1626.
We also know that Audrey's son John had a daughter of his own (Isabel)
who was married in 1632 - i.e. Audrey's granddaughter was old enough
to be married in 1632, so we must posit a birthdate for her of, say,
no later than 1618, but likely rather earlier. Her father, then, is
likely to have been born no later than 1601 (but again, likely
earlier), which would give Audrey a birthdate of say, 1586. This
would make it chronologically possible for her to still be bearing
children as late as 1626 - but is it likely? I suspect not, and it
would cause me to question to received genealogy.
