I have come to the conclusion that John Applewhayte son of Bartholomew baptised 27 November 1569 is indeed the 'illegitimate' son of Bartholomew Fenne.
1.There is no other Bartholomew with children baptised in Eye
2.There is no sign of a Bartholomew Applewhayte or family living in Eye
3.Bartholomew Fenne had a son Nicholas baptised in Eye 26 Aug 1570 and was buried 23 September 1570 two weeks after his mother Joan who probably died from the after effects of childbirth. You suggested earlier shall remayne above indicates Bartholomew was living with his father Robert & step mother Margery in Kenton 1573 which would not be unusual if he was a widower. I imagine that this would include the 'illegitimate' John Applewhayte for whom Bartholomew Fenne had taken responsibility supported by his father Robert who became John's godfather and included him in his will. (I need to look at bastardy records on my next visit to Ipswich).
4.The clincher for me is that a John Applewhayte was buried in Thorndon 23 March 1629 the parish in which all the children of Robert (c1520-1574) and Agnes Palle were baptised and three were buried.
5.We have not as yet found a date for the burial of Bartholomew Fenne. There was a Bartholomew Fene buried in Mendlesham 18 Mar 1637. Mendlesham is 7.1 miles from Eye the latter being the burial place of his wife Joan in 1570. There is no other candidate in the Suffolk Burial Record so I think this must be him although he would have been quite elderly at abt 98 years of age.
Bartholomew married UNKNOWN  [MRIN: 11599].
Bartholomew next married Jone  [MRIN: 9258] on 15 Sep 1558 in Thorndon SFK. (Jone  was born circa 1539 and was buried on 15 Sep 1570 in Eye SFK.)
