He was an Archer in the Hundred Year War serving at Crecy, Calais and Poitier. He has a wife and child in England and a mistress in France who has psychic powers. He loses his wife and much of his family in the Black Death. He finds a new wife, goes back to war and rejoins his French mistress. He improves his social position and lives to a good age for the times. Mary Jones born in the 15th Century seeks a quiet life as a Cook for the local gentry. Her marriage breaks down and she falls in love with her cousin. They become involved with the Lollards and Mary suffers at the hands of a perverted priest. She becomes reconciled to her husband and is then killed in a domestic accident. Adam Simpson is a Fisherman born in the 16th Century, his mother has psychic powers. He has a long and successful marriage but commits adultery with his friend's wife. He witnesses the violence of the Reformation era. He dies of a heart attack.
