Who was Humphrey Belt ?

home

Lets start with who he wasn't. An email from Marilyn on the 15 June 2012 reminds us of this.
Here's proof that Humphrey Belt was not a son of Grace Foxcroft (1590, Halifax -  bu. 11 Aug 1664, Bossall) and Robert Belt, married 17 June 1609, Halifax, West Riding, Yorks.
Robert Belt (bpt. 22 Feb. 1575/6, St. Crux, York - 4 Sep. 1656, Flaxton, North Riding, Yorks., bu. Bossall.  Will pr. 9 Oct. 1656) first married Jane Hudson and had a dau. Jane.  
Both Janes died in June 1607. Robert & Grace's children, all baptized at All Saints, Pavement, York, North Riding, Yorkshire.  

Marie (bpt. 20 Nov. 1610, bu. 11 Apr. 1627)
Leonard (bpt. 1 Apr. 1612 -  4 Apr. 1662)
Robert (bpt. 24 July 1614 -  bu. 7 Jan. 1615)
Daniel (bpt. 6 Aug. 1615 -  7 July 1696, Putney, Middlesex).
Grace (bpt. 17 Oct. 1616 -  bef. 6 June 1620, when next Grace was bpt.)
John (bpt. 8 May 1619 -  bu. 9 May 1619).
Grace, bpt. 6 Je. 1620, m. 9 Sep. 1641, Bossall, Richard NELSON
Sarah (bpt. 10 Feb. 1622, bu. 22 Mar. 1693, Bossall)  m. 6 Feb. 1648, Joseph OLEY; m2. Thomas BAWTRY.  
Anne (bpt. 23 Mar. 1623, bu. 27 Mar. 1623).
John (bpt. 18 Je. 1624 - 31 July 1632, Bossall)
Jasper (bpt. 31 July 1625 - bef. June 1661, Allerthorpe by Pocklington, East Riding, Yorks.
William (bpt. 22 Dec. 1628 - 6 Oct. 1631)
Robert (bpt. 30 Nov. 1630 - 1664).  

If we keep this list handy and show that Robert, Daniel, & Grace were b. 1614, 1615, & 1616, and the others were born too close together to allow
for a Humphrey, we MIGHT convince a few people not to list Humphrey as son of Robert & Grace.
