Gunpowder Plot

I’ve just come across a ‘Hellen Wintower’ listed as a householder on the 1664L-65M hearth tax return for Worcestershire and suspect that this relates to Helen Wintour, who was related to the gunpowder plotter Robert Wintour!

She is recorded as the householder of an eleven-hearth property in the parish of Upton Warren and I wonder if this might be Badge Court?

All very interesting!
