William Salt 



GENERAL MEETING, 15ra OCTOBER, 1889. 



The Eleventh Annual Meeting of the Subscribers to the Society 
was held at the William Salt Library, Stafford, on Tuesday, the 
15th October, 1889, The Eight Hon. Lord Wrottesley in the Chair. 
There were also present : Major-General the Hon. G. Wrottesley, 
the Honorary Secretary Major-General E. Manningham Buller, J. 
W. Philips, of Hey bridge, Captain Congreve, the Eev. E. Parker, 
Mr. William Morgan, the Honorary Auditor, Mr. Joseph Nayler, 
Mr. W, M. Jackson, Mr. George Griffiths, Mr. Fowler Carter, and 
Mr. Mazzinghi, the Assistant Secretary. 

The following Report of the Editorial Committee was read to 
the Meeting by the Honorary Secretary : 

The Editorial Committee have to report that the Ninth Volume of 
Staffordshire Collections was issued to the subscribers early 
in the present year, and that the printing of the Tenth 
Volume is in a forward state, about three-fourths of it 
ha,ving been completed. Its contents consist of, firstly, 
Extracts from the Coram Rege Rolls of the reign of Edward 
II., which have been taken from the original Rolls in the 
Record Office by the Honorary Secretary ; secondly, a 
complete copy of the Subsidy Roll of 1332-33, which has 
been transcribed from the original in tbe Public Record 
Office by a competent paleographist, and has been revised 
and edited by the Honorary Secretary; and thirdly, a 
Chartulary of Trentham Abbey, which has been compiled 
from the original deeds in the possession of the Duke of 
Sutherland, by the Rev. F. Parker.* These comprise Part 
I. of the forthcoming Volume. 

* NOTE. Since this Report was issued, it had been found necessary through -want 
of space, to postpone the printing of the Trentham Chartulary. It will now form 
part of Vol. XL 



Part IT. of the new Volume consists of an account of the younger 
branches of the House of Dudley, written for the Society, by 
Mr. H. Sydney Grazebrook, and completing his account of 
the Barony of Dudley, the first portion of which appeared in 
Vol. IX. 

In pursuance of the resolution come to at the last General Meeting 
to devote 26 annually for two years, with a view of printing 
the wills and marriage licences at Lichfield, through the 
intermediation of the Index Library, the Committee have 
to report that five sheets or eighty pages of an Index to the 
Lichfield wills have been printed, and have been placed on 
the table for the inspection of the members of the Society. 
It is proposed, as soon as eight sheets are printed, to issue 
them to the subscribers with a binding similar to that of the 
Annual Volumes. Mr. Phillimore, the Editor of the Index 
Library, considers that two issues can be made in each year. 

During the past year the Society has lost five members, and one 
new member has joined it. The total number of subscribers 
is now 185. 

A tabular statement of receipts and expenditure during the past 
year has been prepared for the subscribers, and shows a 
balance in favour of the Society of 19 5s. 5d. 

The accounts for the past year, viz., for the period between 
15th September, 1888, and 15th September, 1889, were laid before 
the Meeting, and were passed. 

A discussion arose respecting the form in which the Calendar 
of Lichfield wills, prepared by the Index Society, should be dis- 
tributed to the Subscribers. After some debate, it was decided to 
obtain estimates for various forms of binding, and to leave the 
decision in the hands of the Honorary Secretary. 

A vote of thanks to the Contributors and Officers of the Society 
was moved and carried unanimously.

them, from time to time, and five shall be elected at an Annual Meeting of 
the Subscribers. The Council shall be empowered to delegate, if they see fit,

Chairman shall have a casting vote.

first of January in each year, and such annual payment shall entitle each 
Subscriber to the volume issued for the year of such subscription. Any 
Subscriber shall be permitted to withdraw from the Society by giving notice of

Charles, Richard de Chelle, and Hugh, Parson of the Church of Bysshebury,

upon this appeared Brother William Chalk, a mouk of the Church of West- 
minster and claimed them as Clerks in the name of the Prior and Convent, 
by a letter signed with his seal and dated 10 April, 1315. (Here follows the 
letter claiming them as Clerks in the name of the liberty of the Church, and 
appointing the said William Chalk and John de Butterle, the attorneys of the 
Prior to receive them.) And as the Court was not satisfied that the said letters 
were sufficient, the said monk was ordered to appear again at the Quindene 
of Trinity, and as regarded the other defendants, each of them being arraigned 
singly, put themselves on the country ; a jury is therefore to be summoned 
for the same date, and in the meantime all the defendants, Clerks as well as 
laics, were committed to the custody of the Marshall. A postscript adds that 
the process was continued from term to term at the suit of the said Margaret 
until three weeks from Easter in 9 E. II., on which day John, son of Roger de 
Swynnerton, Nicholas his brother, Hugh, Parson of the Church of Bysshe-

tou, Robert Knyght of Stretton, Agnes wife of Ralph de Bisshebury, Thomas 
son of Richard Pecok, and Petronilla sister of Thomas were brought before

appear as shewn on the said Roll of Easter, 9 E. II., and the said Margaret, 
being solemnly called on the first, second, third, and fourth day did not 
appear and she was the appellatrix. Therefore the said John son of Roger 
de Swynnerton and all the other defendants, so far as the suit of the said 
Margaret was concerned, were quit for ever, and the said Margaret is to be 
apprehended, and the said John son of Roger de Swynnerton and the other 
defendants both Clerks and laics being arraigned at the suit of the King, the 
said John son of Roger de Swynnerton, Nicholas his brother, Hugh Parson of 
Bisshebury, Johnde Levynton, John Charles and Richard de Chelle, stated they 
were Clerks, and John de Bittele a monk of the Abbey of Westminster and Arch- 
deacon, appeared and claimed them as Clerks, and the said Roger Personessune 
and the other laics, being arraigned at the suit of the King, stated as before that 
they were not guilty of the death of the said Robert, and put themselves on 
the country. And upon this the King by word of mouth (oretenus) com- 
manded that Henry Spigurnel, associated with a Knight of co. Stafford,

Knyght of Stretton, Agnes wife of Ralph de Bysshebury, Thomas son of 
Richard Pecok, and Petronilla sister of the said Thomas being brought up by 
the Marshall, appeared before Henry Spigurnel, with whom was associated 
John Hastang Knight ; and the Prior of Ronton, acting for the Bishop of 
Coventry and Lichfield, produced the Bishop's Letters Patent and claimed the 
said Clerks, and a jury of the vicinage appeared and stated on their oath that 
the said John and all the others named were not guilty of the deed, nor 
accessory in any way to the death of the said Robert de Esnyngton, and 
Richard Hastang, Henry de Cresswall, Roger de Swynnerton, Robert le 
Mareschal, John de Houton, and William de Chauldon, were sureties to 
produce the prisoners coram Rege to hear judgement. Afterwards at the 
said Quindene of Holy Trinity, the said John son of Roger de Swynnerton 
and all the others, Clerks as well as laics, appeared, and as it appeared by 
the above verdict that the said John son of Roger de Swynnertone and the 
other Clerks and the said Roger Personessune and the other laics were not 
guilty nor accessory to the death of the said Robert, they are quit of the suit 
of the King for the felony in question, m. 105 A, 106 and 107.

Hugh had afterwards assigned the church for the sustenance of the Canons

Scotland and Gascony, and in garrison in the town of Berewic-upon-Tweed, 
for the life of the said Robert, or shew cause why he should not supply them, 
the said Abbot despising the commands of the King, had neither provided 
necessaries for the said Robert, nor had signified to the King any reason for 
not supplying them. And the Abbot appeared and stated that his House from 
a time out of memory had been founded by one Richard Bacim, and endowed 
with certain lands in pure alms, and Ralph, Earl of Chester, had ratified and 
confirmed his grants, 1 and likewise King Henry, then King of England, and

grants to the Abbot and his successors in pure and perpetual alms, and he 
produced the Charters and confirmations of the said Richard Bacun, the Earl

burdened with divers debts, and in consequence of a great mortality amongst

pauperized that it could not find necessaries for the canons serving God 
within the house, and they had been forced to send them out to solicit 
sustenance from their friends, almost as mendicants " quasi mendicantes."

the King. A day was given to the parties to hear judgment at the Quindene

1 The King, properly speaking, could only quarter pensioners on religious houses 
of Eoyal foundation, and the Abbot's plea is to show, that his house was founded by 
a private individual. The King, however, was in possession of most of the Chester 
fief by exchange with the co-heirs of the last Earl of Chester and probably based 
his right on that.

Staff. The Prior of Trentham was attached at the suit of the King in 
a plea that whereas Richard de Whitchurch Balistar, had faithfully 
served the King and the King's father of good memory in their wars inGascony 
and Scotland and in garrison at Berwick-on-Tweed, and the King had com- 
manded that he should be supplied with necessaries from the convent for 
his life ; the Prior had refused to carry out the King's precept to the manifest 
contempt of the King, etc. 

And the said Prior appeared by his attorney and denied the contempt, etc., 
and stated that Ralph, formerly Earl of Chester, had founded the House of 
Trentham with 100s., of land annually for the support of the whole convent, 
and that one Adam le Ferour, formerly the King's servant, at the request of 
the King was supported for his life, in meat, drink and clothing in the said 
house, and the King had never intended that any other should have been 
supported in the same house, and he added that when Richard de Whitchurch 
the Balistar had brought the King's letters, " de sustentatione habenda" in his 
house the Prior had taken the letters to the King himself and had made 
excuses to the King, and the King had remitted his command to the Prior 
by writ of privy seal in these words.

COEAM REGE. EASTER, HE. II. 

Hugh le Blount, knight, appeared in court and acknowledged a deed by which 
he was bound for himself and heirs to pay to John de Stonore and his heirs a 
rent of 100 to be received from his manors of Kyngestone in co. Oxoii, 
4/6 Pencriz, in co. Stafford, and Gyngejeyberd Laundry in co. Essex. Dated from 

Kyngeston, HE. II., and witnessed by John de la Pole, Richard Doyly, 
Robert de Stoke and others. 

John de Stonore also appeared and acknowledged his deed of the same 
date by which he conceded that if the said Hugh during his lifetime should 
not implead him or his heirs for the manor of Duddecote the reversion of 
which belonged to John after the death of the said Hugh and Nicholace his 
wife, no claim would be made by him and his heirs for the said rent of .100, 
but if after the death of the said Hugh, any plea should be moved against 
the said Dame Nicholace by his heirs or by any of the heirs of Hugh, son of 
the said Sir Hugh, then the heirs of the said Hugh should be bound to pay 
the said rent to him and to his heirs for ever. m. 5. 

Derb. Roger de Okoure and Roger de Rossington were attached at the 
suit of Laurence de Okoure of Assheburn for insulting him at Assheburne and 
takinghim by force to Okoure(Okeover) in co. Stafford on the Monday before the 
Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Mary, HE. II., and imprisoning him at 
Okeover for 8 days and ill-treating him until he had made a tine with him for 
40 ; and for taking his goods and chattels, viz., gold, silver, linen and woollen 
cloth to the value of 100, and for which he claimed ,500 as damages. 

Roger de Okoure appeared in person, and Roger de Rossingtou by attorney 
and the latter denied the trespass, and appealed to a jury, and Roger de Okoure 
stated that the said Laurence was his villein and from time out of memory 
he and his ancestors had been seised of him and of his ancestors, as their 
villeins. And the said Laurence stated he was a freeman and living at 
Assheburne, in co. Derby, within the fee of the Earl of Lancaster and outside

the fee of the said Roger when the defendants took him by force and im- 
prisoned him at Okoure in co. Stafford, and as the said Laurence asserted 
that the trespass took place at Assheburne, in co. Derby, and the said 
Eoger declared it took place at Okoure, it appeared to the Court expedient that 
a mixed jury from co. Stafford and co. Derby, should be summoned for the 
Octaves of St. John the Baptist. A postscript states that at Easter term 12 
E. II., a jury came and found that the said Laurence de Okoure was a free- 
man and that he and his ancestors from time out of memory had been free- 
men and they stated that the said Roger de Okoure sent to the said Laurence 
to come and speak to him at Okoure, and when he came he claimed him as his 
villein, and Laurence said he was a freeman and if he would come with him 
to Assheburne he could prove it by his muniments, and the said Roger de 
Okoure came to him at Assheburne and having seen the muniments said to 
Laurence that they were insufficient and that he must return with him to 
Okoure, " vel de corpore suo luet" so that the said Laurence out of fear of the 
said Roger and Roger, and against his will, set out for Okoure where he was 
kept in prison for eight days and the said Laurence had made a fine with 
Roger de Okoure of 10 of which he had paid 13 marks, and he had further 
entered into a bond with the said Roger for the payment of 40 sterling with 
two sureties for security, and that the defendants detained this bond to the 
damage of the said Laurence of 70. It was therefore considered that the 
said Laurence should recover damages of 70 against the two defendants and 
the Sheriff was ordered to arrest them. And the said Laurence obtained a 
writ of " elegit " against them according to the statute. A further postscript 
states that the defendants afterwards made fine with the King as appears on 
the roll of fines of Michaelmas term, 13 E. II. m. 28. 

Warw. The Sheriff had been ordered to arrest John son of William 
Murdak and keep him in safe custody till he had made fine with the King for 
not prosecuting his appeal against Juliana formerly wife of Thomas Murdak, 
Alice la Chaumberere and Adam le Someter for the death of Thomas Murdak 
the kinsman of the said John son of William Murdak, and the Sheriff returned 
he could not be found and held nothing within his bailiwick ; he was therefore 
ordered as before to produce the said John at the Octaves of Michaelmas.

the King sent a writ to the Sheriff of Warwickshire to inform him that the 
Sheriff of Staffordshire had returned that the said Juliana had been indicted

who had been killed there and had been committed to the gaol of Stafford

King sent a writ to the Sheriff of Staffordshire to conduct safely the said 
Juliana, coram Rege at the Octaves of Hillary and to send up at the same time 
the indictment against her. A postscript states that at that date the Sheriff of 
Staffordshire returned that on a scrutiny of his rolls he could find no indict- 
ment against her, and that she had been indicted before Roger de Cheyni 
and William de Stafford custodes pads of the County, with whom the indict- 
ment remained, and that the said Juliana had never been taken and detained 
a prisoner in the gaol of Stafford, for immediately after the felony she had 
left the County ; and as it appeared that Roger Tromwyn whilst he was Sheriff, 
viz., on the 8th August, 12 E. II., had returned into the King's Chancery 
that the said Juliana was taken and detained a prisoner at Stafford and in 
consequence of which the King had ordered the outlawry in co. Warwick to 
be superseded, the Sheriff of Staffordshire was ordered to attach the said 
Roger Tromwyn and produce him coram Rege at the Qumdene of Easter to 
answer to the King for the body of the said Juliana, and a precept was sent 
to Roger Cheynduc (sic), and the other custodes pacis before whom, &c., to

appeared and the Sheriff returned they could not be found, with the exception 
of the said Emma who wa*> in the King's prison but was in such infirm health 
she could not be moved without peril of death. The Sheriff was therefore 
ordered to put the defendants with the exception of the said Emma into the 
"exigend" and if they did not appear to outlaw them, and if they appeared to 
arrest and produce them on the morrow of St. John the Baptist, and he 
was also ordered to bring up the said Emma at the same date in safe

to the custody of the Marshall, if he could be found. And the said William 
now appeared, having been bailed by the Sheriff, and the Sheriff and Coroners 
of the county returned that having made a scrutiny of their rolls, they could 
find no indictment against him for the death of the said Thomas. The said

there were no chattels there except the growing crops, which had been seised 
by the Bailiff for the payment of five marks out of the damages assigned to

Warwick at the date of it, on the prosecution of John le Hopere for forcibly

could not produce them in consequence at this term, he was ordered to pro-

with respect to the said Juliana, the King had sent a mandate to the Sheriff 
to supersede all the proceedings against her in the County, inasmuch as she 
had been committed to the Marshalsea. The defendants, with the exception 
of Juliana, were therefore to be outlawed, and the Sheriff was ordered to make

of John Hastang and others for the death of Vivian her husband, and the 
Sheriff returned she could not be found, and he was therefore ordered to put 
her into the exigend, and if she did not appear, etc. A postscript states that 
the King by Letters Patent, dated 12th November, 14 E. II., pardoned the 
said Alice for the above transgression, and the proceedings in the County 
Court were therefore to be superseded, ra. Rex, 3, dorso. 

North. The King sent his writ to the Sheriff and Coroners of co. North- 
ampton in these words, viz., that whereas Robert Rugel our late approver, 
taken and detained in our gaol of Northampton, had appealed John de Vans'

in the event that the said approver be dead, to transmit the said appeal to be 
heard before us at the Quindene of St. Michael. Dated 9th July, 14 E. II. 

In pursuance of the said writ, the Sheriff and Coroners returned that the 
said Robert, the approver was dead, and sent the appeal in these words 

The appeal of Robert Ruggele, approver, lately made before Hamon de 
Vieleston, Coroner of co. Northampton, on the Friday the morrow of St. 
Michael, HE. II. Robert Ruggele of Yelvertoft acknowledged himself to 
have aided and abetted the death of Thomas Murdak, who had been 
feloniously killed in the castle of Storton in co. Stafford, on the Monday in 
Easter week, 9 E. II., and he appealed for the death of the said Thomas, Sir 
John de Vaus, who had commanded and sent the said Robert and others to 
commit the said felony. He also appealed Juliana, formerly wife of the said 
Thomas Murdak, of abetting the death of the said Thomas, formerly her 
husband. He also appealed William, son of Richard de Bodekisham, dispen- 
ser of the said Thomas, for the said death, and stated that the said William 
struck the said Thomas on the head as he lay in bed with a certain staff. 
He also appealed Robert the Chaplain and Seneschall of the said Sir Thomas 
of the said death, and stated that he struck the said Thomas with a certain 
Bydewe up to the hilt when he attempted to rise. He also appealed Roger 
the Chamberlain for the said Juliana for the said death, and stated that he 
spitted (brochiavit) the said Thomas in the belly above the navel with a knife. 
Also on the Sunday next following, on the third day of the appeal, before the

Shene, the cook of the said John de Vaus, at that time the servant of the said 
Thomas, and Adam the palfreyman of the said John de Vaus, of abetting the

Vaus, coram Rege, and he was committed to the custody of the Marshal, and the 
said John being arraigned for the death of the said Thomas, stated that he 
was a clerk, and could not answer without his Ordinary, upon which, ex 
parte the King, it was objected that the said John was a bigamist, inasmuch 
as on the Thursday in the week of Easter, 9 E. II., at Lichfield, in co. 
Stafford, he had married the said Juliana, and up to this time had kept her 
as his wife, by which he could not avail himself of the benefit of clergy 
(privilegio clericali), and the said John de Vaus stated as before that he was 
a clerk, and not a bigamist as imputed to him. And the Sheriff was there- 
fore ordered to produce coram Rege at the Octaves of Hillary, 24 knights 
and freemen, of which twelve were to be Knights girt with the sword, per 
quos, etc., and the said John was committed to the custody of the Constable 
of the Tower ; and at the Octaves of Hillary the said John appeared again 
coram Rege and the jury aforesaid, and because the said John had been, 
elsewhere put into the exigend and had been outlawed in co. Stafford at the 
County Court held on the Thursday after the Feast of St. Martin last past 
for the said death, he was asked why judgment should not be delivered at 
once on the said outlawry. And the said John statei that the outlawry 
should not be to his injury, because on the Saturday after the Feast of All 
Saints preceding the said Feast of St. Martin he had been taken in the City 
of London, and on the morrow had been delivered to the said Constable of 
the Tower, and up to this time had been detained by him as a prisoner, so 
that he could not be present at the County Court of Stafford held on the 
Thursday after St. Martin. And because it was evident to the Court that 
the said John was in the custody of the Constable of the Tower on the day 
that the outlawry was promulgated, it was considered that the outlawry 
should be annulled, and the said John restored to the common law, (ad 
communem legem restituatur). And the jury, elected ad hoc, say on their oath 
that the said John was a bigamist, because on the said day and year he had 
married the said Juliana at Lichfield in co. Stafford, and the said John being 
asked how he wished to be acquitted of the said death, denied the felony and 
put himself on the country. A jury is therefore to be summoned for the 
Quindene of Master. A postscript states that the process was continued de 
die in diem up to the morrow of St. John the Baptist, 18 E. II., on which day 
a jury consisting of Philip de Somerville, Philip de Barynton, William de 
Boeles, Hugh de Aston, Roger de Levynton, Robert de Gresebrok, John 
Dymmok, Roger Golde, Robert son of Nicholas de Russhale, William de 
Derlaston, Thomas de Blakeleye, and Roger de Peek stated on their oath that 
the said John was not guilty of the said death, nor of sending, or procuring, 
or abetting it. He was therefore acquitted of the same. m. 31, Rex.

the said John, Oliver, and Henry had surrendered, and had been bailed by 
John Pecche, senior, John de Heyford, and Alexander de Crulefeld, and the 
said John Dunheved now appeared, and the said Edith being solemnly 
called on the first, second, third, and fourth day, did not appear. Her

them, coram liege, at the Octaves of St. Michael, HE. II., to answer the 
appeal of John, son of William Murdak, for the death of Thomas Murdak, 
his kinsman, and the said John, son of William, being solemnly called on 
the first, second, third, and fourth days, did not appear. He is therefore to be 
arrested, and his sureties for the prosecution, viz., Simon Jones, and William 
de Eyton, are in miser icordid, and respecting the said Juliana, Alice, and 
Adam, the Sheriff returned they could not be found, and held nothing within 
his bailiwick. And he was ordered to arrest them at the suit of the King, 
and produce them at the Octaves of Hillary next ensuing, to answer to the 
King for the said death, at which Octaves the Sheriff returned they could 
not be found, and he was ordered to put them into the exigend, and if 
they did not appear the said Adam was to be outlawed, and the said 
Juliana and Alice were to be waiviatce. 1 And if they appeared, the Sheriff 
was ordered to produce them coram Liege at the Octaves of St. Michael, 
12 E. II. At which Octaves the Sheriff returned that the said Juliana, 
Adam, and Alice had been exacted at five County Courts, and had not 
appeared, and the said Adam had been outlawed, and the said Alice had 
been wctyviata, and with regard to the said Juliana, as it was notified to the 
King that she had been arrested and was detained in the King's prison at 
Stafford, and as it would not be consonant to right that she should be 
wayviata whilst detained in prison, the King sent a writ to supersede the 
proceedings in the County of Warwick against her, dated from Clipstone, 15th 
August, 12 E. II. And the Sheriff of Staffordshire was ordered to produce 
the said Juliana, coram Rege, at the Octaves of Hillary following, to answer 
for the said death, and the Sheriff of Staffordshire, viz., Robert de Grendon, 
returned at that date, that the said Juliana had never been apprehended by 
him, nor detained in prison at Stafford, because, immediately after the per- 
petration of the said felony, she had left the County ; and because Roger 
Trumwyne, lately Sheriff, had testified that the said Juliana was in prison 
at Stafford, and the Sheriff now returned the contrary, the said Sheriff was 
ordered to attach Roger Trumwyne, and produce him at the Quindene of 
Easter following to answer to the King for the body of the said Juliana ; and 
the said Sheriff and Coroners, at the above named Octaves of Hillary had

(bene constitit eis) that the said Juliana had been indicted before Eoger de 
Cheigny and William de Stafford, and their fellow Conservators of the King's 
peace in co. Stafford, for the said death, and a precept was therefore sent to 
the said Conservators to return the indictment coram Rege at the following 
Quindene of Easter, at which Quindene of Easter, viz., in 12 E. II., the said 
Conservators of the King's peace in co. Stafford, returned that on a scrutiny 
of their Bolls, they found that the said Juliana was indicted for the death of 
the said Thomas Murdak, killed at Stourton, co. Stafford, but the inquisition 
made no mention of the names of those by whom, etc. (sic in orig.) and the 
said Conservators were ordered to send the indictment to the King at the 
Octaves of St. John the Baptist following, on which day they sent the indict- 
ment in these words : 

Inquisition made before Roger de Cheigne, Sheriff of co. Stafford, at the 
Great Hundred of Seysedon on the Tuesday, the morrow of the Invention of 
the Holy Cross, 9 E. II., by the oath of Henry de Morf, Robert Buffray, Ralph

John de Molesleye, Robert de Sewalle, Richard de Pycheford, William de 
Fynchinfeld, William Buffray, and John de Frees, who stated on oath that 
the said Juliana, formerly wife of Sir Thomas Murdak, Robert de Yolvetoft, 
Roger the Chamberlain of Juliana, William son of Richard, the Esquire 
(Armiger) of the said Thomas, and Matilda de Hastang had killed the said 
Thomas at Stourtou on the night following the Monday in the week of Easter, 
with the assent and procurement of Sir John de Vaus, and Elias, his brother, 
and of Robert the Chaplain of the said Thomas. In testimony of which, the 
said Jurors had set their seals to this inquisition. On account of which in- 
dictment the Sheriff of co. Stafford had been commanded to arrest them and 
produce them at the Octaves of St, Michael to answer to the King for the 
said death. And the Sheriff of co. Warwick was ordered to put the said 
Juliana into the emgend, de navo, and if she did not appear, etc., and if she 
appeared, to produce her at the Octaves of Hillary, 13 E. II. On which day 
the Sheriff made no return to the writ, and he was ordered as before, and to 
produce her at the Quindene of St. John the Baptist, on which day the 
Sheriff returned that the said Juliana had appeared at the fifth County Court 
held on the Vigil of St. John the Baptist, 13 E. II., and he had arrested her, 
and she was detained in the King's pi-ison, but was so ill and weak he could 
not produce her at the said Quindene of St. John the Baptist without danger 
of death. And he was ordered to produce her at the Octaves of St. Michael 
14 E. II. On which day the Sheriff sent the said Juliana coram Rege, and 
she was committed to the custody of the Marshall, and being afterwards 
brought up by the Marshall and questioned respecting the said death, she 
denied the felony and put herself on the country, and a jury was summoned 
for the Octaves of St. Hillary, of which twelve were to be Knights gladio 
cincti ; on which day the said Juliana was brought before the Court by the 
Constable of the Tower, and the jury stated on their oath that the said 
Juliana had feloniously and insidiously (seductive) killed the said Thomas 
Murdak, formerly her husband. Ideo, etc. [the word comburenda (to be 
burnt) appears in the margin]. She had no lands or chattels in co. Stafford, 
and it was testified she held lands and chattels in co. Warwick. The Sheriff 
and Coroners of co. Warwick were therefore ordered to return on oath what 
goods and chattels and lands the said Juliana held on the Friday after the 
Octaves of St. Hillary, 14 E. II., on which day the said Juliana had been con- 
victed, etc. m. Rex, 7. 

On the back of the same membrane are recorded the proceedings against 
the other defendants up to the date of the Roll, viz., Hillary term, 14 E. II. 
None of them had appeared at the exigend, and they had all been outlawed, 
but as it had been shown that John de Vans at the date of the outlawry pro- 
mulgated against him, viz., on the Thursday after the Feast of St. Martin, 



COliAM REGE, 14 E. II. 39 

14 E. II., was in the custody of the Constable of the Tower, a writ was issued 
to revoke and annull it, and the said John being afterwards questioned 
respecting the death of the said Thomas Murdak, at Michaelmas term, 
coram Rege, stated he was not guilty and a jury was summoned for the 
Quindene of Easter. 

After which are recorded the proceedings up to date against Roger 
Trumwyne, late Sheriff of Staffordshire for returning falsely that the said 
Juliana was in the King's prison at Stafford, by which it appears that the 
said Roger had been arrested by the Sheriff of qo, Stafford and sent coram 
Rege at the Quindene of Easter, 12 E. II., when he was committed to the 
custody of the Marshall, but afterwards released on bail, and at the Octaves 
of St. John the Baptist following, the said Roger appeared before the King 
and denied that he had made the return in question, viz., that the said Juliana 
had been taken by him and was detained in custody, and he put himself on 
the country. A jury was therefore summoned for the Quindene of St. 
Michael, and the said Roger was committed to the custody of the Marshall, 
but afterwards released on bail ; Thomas de Assheburn, William de Waleye, 
Adam de Reresby, Robert de Clifton of co. Derby, John de Cestria of co. 
Warwick, and Simon de Ruggeleye of GO. Stafford, being surety for him. 

Kancia. A writ was sent to the Sheriff of co. Kent, stating that the King 
having been informed that Richard de Tutbury and Ernald de Codenoiire, who 
had been indicted for a robbery at the Castle of Dudley had been arrested 
within his bailiwick, he was required to send them coram Rege at the Octaves 
of the Purification. Dated from Westminster, 24 January, 14 E. II. And the 
Sheriff' of co. Kent returned that he had sent a precept to John de Breideston 
the Bailiff of the Archbishop of Canterbury, who had thus answered. 

Richard de Tuttebury and Nicholas Arnold of Codenovere were attached 
at the suit of John Mot of Canterbury, having been taken with the manner 
manuopere), viz. : with a sum of 38 and 20 pence sterling, belonging to John 
Somery, and in the custody of John Mot, feloniously stolen from the Castle of 
Dodeleye, in co. Stafford, of which money the said Richard had .37 9s. and the 
said Nicholas 12s. 8d., and the Sheriff now sent the said Richard and Nicholas, 
who were committed to the Marshall but he did not send the said manuopus. 
The Sheriff was therefore ordered to send it at three weeks from Easter if 
in his custody, and if not, to send John deBreideston, the Bailiff, coram Rege 
to answer for it at the same term. And it was testified before the King, that 
the said Richard de Tutteburi was attached at Derteford by John Lambyn 
and Henry le Shotter, the Bailiffs of the Bishop of Rochester, with a horse 
worth four marks, and with a saddle and bridle worth 6s., and with 50, and 
16s. in money, and with a sword and bow worth 10s. And the said Nicholas 
Ernald was attached at Dertefoi-d by William de Tyngewik, and John his 
brother, Bailiffs of the King at Derteford with a horse worth 20s., and with 
26 marks in money, and with a trunk (una mala) and three yards and a half of 
cloth, worth 13s. The Sheriff was therefore ordered to make enquiry upon oath 
respecting the said arrest by the said Bailiffs at Derteford, and if it should 
appear that they had concealed the manuopus, to attach and produce them 
coram Rege, at the same term, viz., at three weeks from Easter. 

Staff. And afterwards Robert de Greudon, the Sheriff of co. Stafford, in 
answer to the King's writ returned the tenor of the indictment in these 
words, viz. : " Richard de Tuttebury and Nicholas Ernald of Codenover were 
indicted before me at the Great Tourn of the Hundred of Seysdon, held after 
the Feast of St. Michael, 14 E. II., that they had broken into the Castle of 
John de Somery at Dodleye, and had carried away from it 1,000, and more ; 
and as it appeared to the Court that the return was insufficient, because the 
Sheriff made no mention in it of the day and year of the felony, nor of the 
inquisition made respecting it, nor the names of the jury by whom the said 
Richard and Nicholas were indicted, he was ordered to return another at

mill, a virgate and a half, and thirty acres of land, and a piece of land 300 
perches in length and 200 in width in Wodecote, near Hetlihulle. 

And the said Edmund answered as tenant, and stated the assize would 
not lie, because his father William had recovered from the said Geoffrey two 
parts of the manor of Wodecote by an assize of novel disseisin before William 
de Mortimer and his Fellow Justices, and that the tenements claimed formed 
a part of the two-thirds of the manor which he had recovered at that time. 
The said Geoffrey denied that the tenements he now claimed formed any part 
of the two- thirds of the manor recovered by William, and appealed to a jury. 
The jury found that a portion of the tenements now claimed were contained 
in the two-thirds of the manor recovered by William, the father of Edmund, 
but that two messuages, the mill, and a virgate, and thirty acres of land, and 
the piece of land in question were not so contained. Geoffrey is therefore to 
recover seisin of this portion, but is in misericordia for his claim for the 
remainder, m. 19.

of them that they were unable to keep watch, and the said Roger and his

and that in pursuing the said William and other rebels from Bridgenorth, 
they found him concealing himself at Assheburne, and they had taken and 
imprisoned him as a rebel to the King, as was lawful, and as regarded his 
goods and chattels, they denied they had taken any except one horse 
which had been taken by William de Spyneye and respecting which the said 
William produced a writ of the King which stated he was not to be molested 
for taking any of the goods of the rebels. And the said William de Knyveton 
denied that he was an adherent of Roger de Mortimer, or in his retinue at 
Bridgenorth, and appealed to a jury; and the Sheriff of co. Derby was ordered 
to summon a jury of 24, and the Sheriff of Salop another jury of 24, to appear

were devolved to be heard before the King in person, coram ipso Rege, and 
the process was continued against them up to this day, viz., three weeks from 
Easter. 19 E. II., on which day Henry del He, John de la Launde and Adam 
Basset appeared by attorney and John le Blount and Roger de Bodenham 
appeared in person ; and being questioned on the subject denied they had 
taken anything to their own use or profit, and on this put themselves on 
the country, and a jury was summoned coram Rege for the morrow of the 
Ascension. A postscript states that on that day a jury appeared and stated 
on oath that none of the defendants had taken any forfeited goods or chattels 
to their own profit nor were guilty of any of the other trespasses laid against 
them. They are therefore acquitted of the same. m. 23, Rex. 



CO RAM REGE. 19 E. II. 65 

Staff. A jury had presented elsewhere before J. de Stonore and his Fellow

the King's enemy three cart-horses each worth 10s., an ox worth 4s. and meat in 
the larder worth 19s. 4d., and a cart worth 6s. 80?., and the said presentments were 
now devolved to be heard coram Rege, and the process being continued against 
the said William up to this day, the said William de Mountagu appeared in 
person and being questioned respecting them, stated that the King had 
ordained that those who were in his service pursuing the rebels, should not be 
molested for the possession of any of the goods of the rebels, and he produced 
the King's writ to that effect dated from Kenylworth, 15 April, 19 E. II., m. 
9, dorso, Rex. 

Derb. The Sheriff had been ordered to distrain Nicholas de Craunford,

forfeited in the said county, and bad been in their possession (per ipsos occupatis) 
and of which they had been indicted according to the tenor of certain indictments 
made before John de Stonore and his Fellow Justices, and none of the 
defendants appeared but the Sheriff returned certain sums which he had 
levied from the goods of those he had distrained. He was therefore ordered 
as before to distrain those who had found bail, and to arrest the others, and 
produce them at the Octaves of Michaelmas, m. 8, dorso, Rex. 1 

1 There is no further notice of these prosecutions on account of the possession 
of forfeited goods of the Earl of Lancaster and others on the Koll of Michaelmas, 
20 E. II., probably owing to the troubles and difficulties in which the King had 
involved himself, and which resulted in his deposition very shortly afterwards.

Hugh de Sheyle, Roger son of Roger de Swynnerton, Thomas de Haulton, 
Knight, John de Boulewas, John brother of James de Stafford, and William 
his brother, and others, to answer for divers homicides, etc., and he returned 
they could not be found. He was therefore ordered to put them into the 
exigend and if they did not appear to outlaw them, etc. A postscript states 
that afterwards on the Tuesday before the Feast of St. Cudbert in March,

don, John Giffart, Philip de Somerville, William de Wolseleye, Roger de 
Aston, Richard de Blithefeld, Robert le Mareschal, and Vivian de Chetewynde 
appeared and became sureties to produce him before the Justices on the 
Friday before the Feast of St. Margaret. The writ of exigend against him 
was therefore superseded. 

Staff. The Sheriff had been commanded to summon before the said Justices, 
or any two of them, Thomas de Brumpton, William de Stafford, Knight, 
James de Stafford, and John his brother, James son of Roger Trumwyne and 
Roger his brother, Roger de Chetewyude, John son of John Bozoun of

Knight, William de Chetelton, Henry de Cresswalle, John de Couleye, 
John de Picheford, and William le Valeis of Lichefeld to answer for various 
transgressions of which they had been indicted, and John de Ipstanes and 
Henry de Cresswalle appeared, but no others, and the Sheriff returned that 
James de Stafford and Richard Wolrich were bail for William de Stafford, 
Knight ; and that William de Pipe and John Put were bail for John the 
brother of the said James ; and Walter de Stafford and Thomas his brother 
were bail for James de Stafford ; and Richard de Canok and Robert de

above, the Sheriff returned they held nothing within his bailiwick, and he was 
therefore ordered to arrest them and produce them at Lichefeld on the same 
day. 

And the said John de Ipstanes, Knight, and Henry de Cresswalle appeared, 
and being questioned by the Justices did not deny that they had ridden 
armed at various tines, as stated in the indictment against them, and they 
put themselves on the King's grace, and because riding about armed, to the 
terror of the people, with a multitude of armed men in concert, in public 
places, is manifestly in contempt of the King and against the King's peace, it 
is considered that the said John de Ipstanes and Henry de Craswalle should 
be committed prisoners to the custody of the Sheriff, m. 2, dorso.

In these Pleas the same process was followed as in the case of the other 
indictments. Where a writ of capias had been issued, as in the case of those 
indicted for felony, and the Sheriff returned " non sunt inventi," he was ordered

" quod nihU, habent in ballivd sud" he was ordered to arrest them, and produce

Church of Eyton, but he denied he had done so to the terror of the people or 
against the King's peace as he then understood it, " ut tune intellexit" and he 
put himself on the King's grace. 

And the said Thomas Wyther stated that William de Ippestanes who had 
been presented to the Church of Eyton was his kinsman, and after John de 
Ipstanes his brother returned to England from Gascony, he had ridden armed 
in company with the said John to maintain the cause of the said William,

admitted he was of the maintenance of those who had done so, viz., of James 
and Roger his sons, and he put himself on the King's grace, and Philip de 
Barynton stated he had not borne arms for the last six years, but admitted 
he had assisted to maintain the cause of the said William de Ipstanes by his 
advice, favor, and help, and he put himself on the King's grace. They are

THE TAXATION OF STAFFORDSHIRE. 
TEMP. ED. III. 



THE SUBSIDY ROLL OF A.D. 1332-1333. 

This is the second Subsidy Roll of Staffordshire which is extant, 
and is the fullest and most complete of all, containing the taxation 
of several vills which were omitted in the Roll of A.D. 1327, 
printed in Vol. VII of these Collections. 

The Subsidy of 1332-33, like its predecessor, was granted by 
Parliament for the expenses of the Scotch war, and consisted of a 
tenth of all goods held on Michaelmas Day, 6 E. III., in cities, 
boroughs, and ancient demesnes of the king, and a fifteenth of the 
same in counties, with some exceptions, which will be noted further 
on. 

? he instructions for levying the aid are given on the Patent 
Roll of 7 K III., part 2, membrane 9. These state that the chief 
taxers were to call before them from every city, borough, or vill 
of the county, the most loyal men, from whom they were to elect 
four or six of each vill, or more if necessary, by whom the taxa- 
tion could be best accomplished; and having summoned these 
before them they were to be sworn on the Holy Evangelists, to give 
a true and full account of all the goods that each inhabitant of the 
said vill held on the said day of St. Michael, both in their houses 
and out of their houses, and to fairly tax them according to their 
true value, saving the things excepted. And the chief taxers were 
required to go from hundred to hundred and from vill to vill 
to see that the sub-taxers had fully taxed and presented the goods 
of all the commonalty, saving armour, saddle horses (mounture) 
jewels and robes of Knights and gentlemen and of their wives, 
and vessels of gold and brass ; and in cities and boroughs one robe 
for each man and woman was to be excepted, also a bed for each, an 
" and" a buckle of gold or silver and the silk sash, "ceynte de seye "

that they used every day, and likewise the hanaper of silver, or of 
mazre from which they drink, also all the goods of lepers " bien des 
meseaux " in cases where they were governed by a master leper, 
" sovereign meseal " shall not be taxed, but if otherwise their goods 
were to be taxed like the others ; and the goods of people of the 
counties, outside the cities and boroughs, and the King's demesnes, 
which did not exceed 10s. in value were not to be taxed, nor the 
goods of the inhabitants of cities, boroughs, or King's demesnes 
which did not exceed 6s. in gross value.

DUDLEY OF YANWATH, WESTMORELAND. 

THOMAS DUDLEY, son of Sir Edmund Sutton, alias Dudley, by 
bis second wife, Maud Clifford (see "The Barons of Dudley," 
" Staffordshire Collections," IX., part ii., p. 84), acquired the estate 
of Yanwith, or, as it is now written, Yanwath, in Westmoreland, 
in marriage with Grace, 1 one of the daughters and co-heirs of 
Lancelot Thirkeld of that place. He had issue 

1. Richard Dudley, who succeeded. 

2. John Dudley, of Stoke Newington, in Middlesex, of whom 

next. 

3. Thomas Dudley, steward to the Earl of Leicester. He 

died s.p., seised of lands in Bishop's Itchington, co. 
Warwick. His will, in which he is described as " of 
London, Esq.," is dated 16th September, 1593, and was 
proved the penultimate of October in the same year in 
the P.C.C. (68 Nevell). He gives to his nephew, 
Anthony Blencowe, Doctor of Laws, all his lands in 
Warwickshire, " or in any other place in England," and 
also all his personal estate, in trust to sell the same in 
order to discharge his debts (which, he says, " are great "), 
and he appoints the said Anthony Blencowe his sole 
executor. In the " Black Book of Warwick," a MS. 
belonging to the corporation of that town, and printed 
in the "Warwickshire Antiquarian Magazine," Thomas 
Dudley is referred to as " comptroller to my lord " 

1 Her sisters were Elizabeth, wife of James Pickering, and Winifred, wife of 
William Pickering, both sons of Sir James, and brothers of Sir Christopher 
Pickering. (Cf. Foster's " Visitations of Yorkshire in 1584 and 1612," p. 120.)

for the representation of Warwick in Parliament. 1 
i. Elizabeth Dudley, married to John Allen, of Thaxted, 

Essex. 
ii. Lucy Dudley, married to Albany Fetherstonhaugh, of 

Fetherstonhaugh, and secondly (it is said) 2 to Gerard 

Lowther. 
iii. Winifred Dudley, married to Anthony Blenco, or Blencowe, 

of Blencowe, by whom she was mother of a second son, 

the aforesaid Dr. Anthony Blenco, for forty-five years 

provost of Oriel College, Oxford. 

John Dudley, Esq., of Stoke Newington, the second son, was 
secretary to the Earl of Leicester. He acquired a lease for years 
in 1571 of the manor of Stoke Newington, which he left to his 
wife and only daughter equally. He died 29th December, 1580, 
and was buried at Stoke Newington, " where his tomb yet 
remaneth." 3 His will is dated 25th March, 1578, and was proved 
in the P.C.C., 27th April, 1581. He desires to be buried in the 
chancel of Stoke Newington church, " without any glorious vain 
pompe or shew to the worlde." Gives his lands in Kent and in 
the city of Canterbury to Elizabeth, his wife. " To the R l Hon. 
and rny singular good lord and master therle of Leicester," 100, 
" to be converted into some convenient piece of plate, upon which 
rny arms are to be engraved." Mentions his brothers, Thomas 
Dudley and Pdchard Dudley; his nephew and godson, John 
Fetherstone ; Anthony Blencowe, Edmund Dudley, and John 
Fishborne. Residue to Elizabeth, his wife, and to "Anne, my 
onely daughter," equally, and appoints them his executrixes. 
Signs, "John Duddeley." Following the will (in register "Darcy," 
fo. 15) is a note respecting its validity, etc., in which are named 

1 Dugdale (Dr. Thomas's edition), gives Thomas Dudley, Esq., as M.P. for the 
Borough of Warwick, 14, 17, 28, & 31 Eliz. From the official return of Members 
of Parliament it appears that he was first returned 21st April, 1572, 14 Eliz., to the 
Parliament summoned to meet on the 8th of May, 1572, and dissolved 9th April, 

1583. Next on 9th November, 1584, to the Parliament -which met 23rd November, 

1584, and was dissolved 14th September, 1585 ; next on 14th October, 1586 ; and 
lastly on 3rd October, 1588.

DUDLEY OF YANWATH. 5 

Thomas Dudley, of the city of London, Esq., and Edmund Dudley, 
"son of Eichard Dudley." 

Notwithstanding his desire to the contrary, as expressed in his 
will, he appears to have been buried with great pomp, if one may 
judge from the roll of his funeral expenses as printed in Brown's 
History of Stoke Newington. 1 

John Dudley married Elizabeth, daughter of John Gardiner, 
Esq., of Grove House, Chalfont St. Giles, Bucks, and by her (who 
re-married by license, dated 17th September, 1582, Thomas Sutton, 
Esq., of Littlebury, Essex, the celebrated founder of the Charter- 
house, 2 and was buried at Stoke Newington, 17th June, 1G02) 
had issue an only daughter and heiress, Anne, born 12th February, 
1574-5, who was married in 1590 to Sir Francis Popham, Knt., of 
Littlecote, son of Sir John Popham, Lord Chief Justice of the 
Queen's Bench. 

Lysous ("Environs of London," 2nd ed.,Vol. II., p. 573) thinks 
it probable that, previous to her second marriage, Mrs. Dudley let 
the Manor House, at Newington, to Robert Dudley, Earl of 
Leicester, for, he says, the arms of Dudley, with an Earl's coronet 
and the order of the Garter, were taken some years ago from a 
house on the site of the manorial residence. Brown notes a 
tradition current in the parish that the Princess Elizabeth was 
secreted in the Mansion House during the reign of her sister 
Mary ; and the house is also said to have been, in after years, a 
not unfrequent place of meeting between Elizabeth and Leicester. 
Mrs. Dudley was high in favour with the queen, and it is related 
that in one of her visits Her Majesty, taking a jewel of great value 
from her hair, bestowed it upon Anne Dudley, the daughter. 3 

It would seem from the following letter, dated "Neuenton, 
12th March, 1581," addressed to Leicester by " Elizabeth Duddeley," 

1 Nichols's " Bibliotheca Topographica Britannica," No. XTV. The schedule of 
his funeral expenses given by Mr. Brown states that he " died at London, the 29th 
daie of December, 1580, and was buried at Newington, the 17th daie of Januarie 
following." Among those present at his funeral were " my lord Dudlei's two 
sonnes," "Mr. Thomas Dudlei," "Mr. Humfrie Bowland," " Dudlei Bowland," 
" George Blincoe," " Dudlei Lilgrave," " Mr. Fetherston," &c. 

2 Among the Eutland MSS. (Hist. MSS., Com. Rep., 12, App. Pt. IV., i., 429) is 
a letter dated 10th March, 1611, from . . . Bray to the Earl of Eutland in 
which the writer says, " My Lord of Suffolk hathe soulde Charterhowse to riche 
Sotton for fortene thowsande pownes. They saye that he wile buylde an hospitall 
for pore solgiares to dweale therein."

that Jolin Dudley had in some way given offence to that all- 
powerful noble. The loss of her dear husband, she writes, and 
Leicester's late conceived displeasure against him, have grievously 
touched her. Her only earthly comfort now is his protection. 
Beseeches him to pity a poor widow's tears and to extend his 
favour to herself and her poor girl. 1 

Eichard Dudley, of Yanwath, the eldest son, married Dorothy, 
daughter of Edmund Sandford, of Askham, in Westmoreland. In 
1570 he was appointed (on the recommendation of Lionel Ducket) 
superintendent of the Eoyal copper mines in the north of England, 
and on 26th October in that year he writes to Secretary Cecil from 
" Yenwith " that he has received the Queen's orders, and twenty- 
four stamps for marking the copper at the mines (State Papers 
Dom. Eliz.). It appears from Cole's Escheats (Harl. MS. 410) 
that he died 1st January, 35 Eliz., 1593, having had issue (with 
four 2 daughters, Elizabeth, Anne, Jane, and Grace), two sons, viz. : 

1. Edmund Dudley, aged 50 at his father's death, of whom 

next. 

2. Robert Dudley who had issue a son, Eobert. 3 

1 State Papers (Domestic), Eliz., Yol. CXLVIIL, 23. 

2 Harl. MS., 1536, but the Visitation of Yorkshire, 1563-4, edited for the 
Harleian Society by Mr. Norcliffe, gives Elizabeth, Anne, Jone, Eleanor, Jane, and 
Grace. 

3 Cole's Escheats. A Robert Dudley was knighted at Newcastle-on-Tyne by 
King James I., 9th April, 1603. Thomas Sutton, founder of the Charter House, 
in his will, November, 1611, bequeathed 30 to Robert Dudley, alderman, of New- 
castle-upon-Tyne, " which 30 he oweth me ." As Sutton married John Dudley's 
widow it has been supposed that this legatee was Robert, son of Richard Dudley, of 
Yanwath, but I think it more probable that the alderman was Robert, son of John 
Dudley, of Newcastle and Chopwell, which Robert was one of the customers of the 
port of Newcastle. It should be mentioned that Sutton had a lease of the manors of 
Gateshead and Wickham in Durham, and resided for some time in the neighbourhood 
of Newcastle, and he probably had business transactions with the alderman. In what 
way (if any) the Dudleys of Chopwell were related to the baronial house has not been 
discovered. They entered a pedigree without arms, at the Visitation of Durham in 
1615. It commences with John Dudley of Newcastle, who married .... daughter 
of William Carr, and had issue a " sonne and heire," Robert, of Newcastle. He 
married Anne, daughter of Christopher Wood, alias Cooke, and had issue Ambrose of 
Chopwell (who entered and signed the pedigree), Robert, Henry, andlDorothy. Robert 
married Isabel, daughter of Richard Greenfield, of Wotton, Bucks, and had issue 
Toby, then set. 18, William, Anne, and Mary. Surtees (II., 280) gives a more complete 
pedigree of the family, from which it appears that Toby Dudley was buried at Ryton, 
30th May, 1661, having had issue by Jane his wife, daughter of Sir William Blackiston 
of Gibside, Knt. (she was buried 7th April, 1690), an only daughter and heirese, 



DUDLEY OF YANWATH. 7 

Edmund Dudley, of Yanwath, married Elizabeth, daughter and 
co-heiress of Cuthbert Hooton, of Hooton. He resided some time 
at Dufton, in Westmoreland, where several of his children were 
baptised. 1 His post-mortem inquest was taken at Appleby 15th 
September, 10 James L, 1612, when it was found that he died 25th 
September, then last past, and that his heir was his son, Thomas 
Dudley, aged 40. 2 Edmund had issue 

1. Thomas Dudley, of whom next. 

2. Eichard Dudley, a priest. 

3. John Dudley, of Gray's Inn, married at Ormside 26th 

October, 1620, Frances Pickering, a natural daughter of 
Sir Christopher Pickering, Knt., and dying s.p., was 
buried at Ormside, 7th March, 1622. 3 In February, 
1601, this John Dudley, described as "of Graies Inn 
Esquier," exhibited a bill in Chancery 4 against Thomas 
Freak (or Freke) and others as to lands in Bishop's 
Itchington, co. Warwick, which had been acquired on 
21st June, 1585, by " one Thomas Duddeley, Esquier, 

Jane, married to Robert Clavering, of Axwell, brother of Sir James Clavering, Bart. 
It appears from Dugdale's Vis. of Yorkshire in 1665, that this lady was first married 
to Edmund Norton, of St. Nicholas-juxta-Richmond, who died s.p. by her before 
21st August, 1665. With regard to the John Dudley who heads the pedigree and is 
stated to have married "... daughter of Wm. Carr," there is in the Public 
Record Office (Chancery Proceedings, temp. Eliz., Dd. 7, No. 10) a chancery bill in 
which " Henrye Dudley, gent., and George Barker," complain unto "the Queen's 
most excellent Majestic " that whereas one William Carre, the elder, deceased, being 
lawfully seised of (inter alia) certain lands in Whickham in the occupation of 
Robert Matfield and Christopher Stubbs, did by his will give the said lands to the 
seven children of one John Dudley and his wife, deceased, the daughter of the said 
William Carre, the said John Dudley and his said wife being the father and mother 
of "your said subject Henrye Dudley," and the said wife of the said John Dudley 
being the mother by a former husband of " your said other subject," George 
Barker. William Carre died about twenty-eight years past and all the seren 
children of John Dudley and his wife, " but your said subject only," are also dead. 
Such being the case, the complainants contend that the said tenement ought "wholly 
to remaine to your said subjects," but that the said Matfield and Stubbes have got 
into their hands the said will and have wrongfully entered upon the premises. The 
defendants in their answer admit the will, but say that on the complainants' own 
showing George Barker was not one of the children of the said John Dudley. They 
add that they are only servants or farmers of the premises, and hold under Thomas 
Surtees and Jane his wife, which Jane did, when sole, purchase them of one Peter 
Carre. The proceedings are not dated.

to Ei chard Duddeley, deceased, the father to Edmund 
Duddeley, father to your Orator." He proceeds to state 
that about the four-and-thirtieth year of the now Queen's 
reign (1592), the said Thomas Dudley died without 
issue ; after whose death the said lands descended unto 
the said Edmund Dudley, father unto your said Orator, 
as cousin and next heir to the said Thomas, that is to 
say, son and heir of the said Eichard, brother to the said 
Thomas. Your Orator, being one of the younger sons of 
the said Edmund (who, it is afterwards stated, " is ould, 
and dwelleth in Westmoreland"), was enfeoffed in the 
said lands for his advancement, etc., by his said father. 
The defendants in their answer state that Thomas 
Dudley, the purchaser, devised the said property by his 
will to " one Anthonye Blynco, Doctor of Lawes," and 
his heirs, for and towards the payment of testator's debts, 
and that therefore the said lands could not have 
descended, as alleged, to complainant's father.

If she were this Lucy she was getting well on to 50. It should be added that I do 
not know the dates of births or baptisms of Dorothy and Mary, though I have here 
placed them as i. and ii. It is possible, too, that there were more daughters than 
those here named. 

3 In the " Q-entleman's Magazine," November, 1819, p. 368, a correspondent asks 
whether this lady had issue, but no reply was elicited. 



DUDLEY OF YANWATH. 9 

Christopher Dudley, of Yanwath, only surviving son, was 
twice married; first to Elizabeth, daughter of Eobert Snowden, 
Bishop of Carlisle (1611-1621), and secondly to Agnes, daughter 
of Daniel Fleming, of Skirwith Hall, Cumberland, by the latter of 
whom he had an only child, Mary, who died in her infancy. 

The nuncupative will (registered 263 Nabbs) of Christopher 
Dudley, Esq., "whilst he lived, of Yanwath, in the county of 
Westmoreland," but who died in the parish of St. Giles'-in-the 
Fields, in the county of Middlesex, was made and declared 
9th September, 1660, in the presence of Margaret Sandford and 
Tobias x Donkin. He gives all his goods and estate whatsoever 
to his loving wife, Agnes ; and being asked as to legacies to friends, 
etc., he replied " he would not give one groat to his friends, but 
all to his said wife, for it was too little for her." 

I suspect he left but little behind him, for he had sold the 
estate at Yanwath, and had suffered much in the cause of the 
Stuarts. The will was proved by Agnes, his widow, in the P.C.C., 
on 29th December, 1660, and he was buried on 12th September, 
1660, at St. Giles'-in-the-Fields, where is a monument to his 
memory with the following inscription : 

" As DUDLEY lodgetli here, peace idle Fame ; 
Its epitaph enough to have that name. 
A Dudley, too, who in the basest time, 
When to be just and loyal was a crime 
Was both : and 'gainst the Rebels bravely stood, 
Unshaken and undaunted by a flood 
Of tyranny. Now his tomb's sole intent 
Shews he deserv'd, but needs no monument. 
When Rebels die, a tomb some life may give ; 
He actuates the marble, makes it live ! 
Shrines may portray our features on a wall, 
But goodness crowns them ; that is all in all. 
Statues present lives, families, and days, 
But the inward structure only merits praise. 
This shrine was rear'd by her, whose love was such 
Her charge in his concern was ne'er too much. 
So dear is nuptial zeal ; tho' th' outward part 
Turn dust, it holds impression on the heart. 
" Obiit Septemb. 9, 1660." ' 

1 Maitland's " History of London," p. 758. 



10 DUDLEY OF EUSSELLS HALL. 

DUDLEY OF EUSSELLS HALL. 

This branch of the baronial house of Dudley was founded (see 
Vol. IX., part ii., p. 91) by Geoffrey, or Jeffrey Sutton, alias Dudley, 
who died at Eussells Hall in 1571. He was a younger son of 
Edward Lord Dudley, K.G., and by Eleanor his wife, a natural 
daughter of Sir Gilbert Talbot of Grafton, co. Worcester, Knt., had 
issue, a son, Thomas, and three daughters, Elizabeth, Bridget, and 
Katherine. 1 

Thomas, to whom his father gave his lease of Yoake or Yorke 
Park, appears to have succeeded at Eussells. He is the only son 
named in the wills of his parents (who were married before 19th 
October, 1542), but I have been unable to ascertain the exact date 
of his birth, though his sisters Bridget and Katherine were 
respectively baptised in 1545 and 1548. 

In a rent roll of Lord Dudley of 40 Eliz., 1598, " Thomas 
Dudley, Esquier," pays 9 os. 4d., for the year's rent of " Yorke 
Parke and Netherton grounds," and 2Qd. for " a burgess in Elles 
Lane " in the town of Dudley. In the Worcestershire Subsidy Eoll 
of 41 Eliz., 1599, "Thomas Dudley, gent., pays 12s. upon 3 lands 
in Dudley parish ; and in that of 1 James I., JL603, I find, under 
Dudley, the names of "Dorothea Dudley, vid," and Jeffrey Dudley, 
both in terris. This Dorothy was evidently the widow of a Thomas 
Dudley, for it is stated in the pedigree of Lascelles in the Harleian 
Society's "Visitations of Notts, 1569 and 1614," that Dorothy, 
daughter of George Lascelles (and sister of Sir Bryan, of Sturton 
and Gaytford), was married to one " Thomas Dudley, of JSTetherton, 

1 As stated in ray paper on the Barons of Dudley, Vol. IX., pt. ii., p. 94, this 
lady was married after 1582 to Simon Dickenson, of Bradley, near Stafford (now 
called Bradeley). He was eight years her junior, having been baptised at Bradeley 
(as son of Richard and Elizabeth Dickenson) on 24th June, 1556. The following 
extracts from the parish registers of Bradeley have been kindly furnished by Mr. T. 
J. de Magginghi : - 

" The 24th day of January was borne Edward Dickinson, y sonne of Mr. 
Syruond Dickinson, gen., and Kateren his wyfe, being Sunday, between the howers 
of one and tow, and was baptised the 28th day of the same moneth, an dni, 1584. 
The Ete honorable L. Dudley, Sir Edward Littleton, My L. Deuerax (sponsors?). 

" The 10th day of f eburary betwyxt y e houres of 10 and 12 was born Dudley 
Dickinson, and was baptised y e 13 day of y e same month, whose godfathers were 
Thomas Dudley and Kichard Dickinson, gentlemen, and Mrs. Fox his godmother, 1585. 

" The 15 day of aprill was borne Elnor Dickinson, the dowghter of Mr. Simond 
Dickenson and Mrs. Kateren his wyfe, and was baptised the 18th day after, whose 
godfather was Mr. Edward Dickinson, and godmothers Mrs. Clarke and Elncr 
Dudley, 1586." 



DUDLEY OF RUSSELLS HALL. 11 

co. Stafford." I do not, however, find in the Dudley Registers the 
burial of any Thomas Dudley prior to 1603, but on the contrary 
" Olde Thomas Dudley, Esquire," was buried 17th June, 1615, and 
" Olde Mrs. Dorothy Dudley " on 26th December, 1629. 

But the entries at Dudley of baptisms, marriages, and burials 
of persons bearing the surname of Dudley, and even Sutton, alias 
Dudley, are so numerous and so confusing 1 that in the absence of 
wills and deeds and other corroborative evidence, I find it abso- 
lutely impossible to give a trustworthy account of the branch 
before us until I reach the beginning of the 17th century, when a 
Jeffrey Sutton, alias Dudley, was of Eussells Hall, and a Thomas 
Sutton, alias Dudley (perhaps his brother), was of Netherton. 

I will first deal with Jeffrey and his descendants. He married, 
at Tipton, 29th January 1611, Elizabeth, the eldest of the natural 
daughters of Edward Lord Dudley, and by her (whom I take to be 
the " Elizabeth, wife of Jeffrey Sutton, gent." who was buried at 
Dudley, 28th March, 1647) had issue, 2 

1. Thomas, baptised at Tipton, 25th April, 1613, as son of 

" Jefferie Dudley, alias Sutton," of whom next. 

2. Edward, " son of Jeffrey Dudley, Esq.," baptised at Dudley, 

9th November, 1617, and buried there, 6th February, 
1625-6. 

3. Jeffrey, 3 " son of Jeffrey Dudley, Esq.," baptised at Dudley, 

16th December, 1619" 

1 For instance, Thomas Dudley and Kathren Wall were married 8th November, 
1557, but we do not find the baptisms of children of a Thomas until 1574, in 
which year, on 16th August, Eleanor, daughter of " Mr. Thomas Dudley," was bap- 
tised. Then in August, 1575, a son or daughter (name and sex illegible) of Thomas 
Dudley was baptised. In 1577, January 19th, Mary, daughter of Mr. Thomas Dudley, 
baptised. Same year, March 2nd, Edward, son of John Dudley, baptised. Then in 
1582, et seq., five children of a Jeffrey Dudley are baptised, viz. : 1584, John (bap- 
tised and buried same day) ; 1583, Edward ; 1585, Dorothy ; same year, Jeffrey ; 
1586, Mary. Next comes a Francis Dudley, who has a son William baptised in 1607; 
and next, on 8th February, 1608, Thomas Dudley and Mary Gregson were married. 
Unfortunately the wife's Christian name is always omitted from the earlier registers, 
which makes it next to impossible to identify the parties, and it would appear that 
there were three contemporary Thomas's about this date. Of course a considerable 
number of the Dudleys found in these registers and those of adjoining parishes were in 
no way related to the baronial house, but simply derived their surnames from the town. 

2 Dorothy, daughter of Jeffrey and Elizabeth Duddeley, was baptised at Kings- 
winford 5th October, 1615. She may have been a daughter of the above Jeffrey, 
but Margaret, daughter of Jeffrey and Mary Dudley, was also baptised there on 
16th May, 1611. 

3 Jeffry, son of Jeffry Sutton, was buried at Dudley, 9th March, 1651-2, and 
John Hinlces, son-in-law to Jeffrey Sutton, on 6th September, 1652. In 165-t, et .ieq.,

4 Robert, 1 " son of Jeffrey Dudley," baptised at Dudley, 27th 

January, 1621-2. 
5. Edward, " son of Jeffrey Dudley, Esq.," baptised at Dudley, 

15th January, 1626-7. 

Jeffrey and Ann Dudley, alias Sutton, had children baptised, and on 27tli February, 
1666-7, Anne, the wife of Jeffrey Dudley, was buried at Kingswinford. 

1 There was a Robert Dudley, of West Bromwich, gent., buried there 7th Sep- 
tember, 1682. He made a nuncupative will, 25th August, 1682, in the presence 
of Jeffrey Dudley and Eleanor Dudley, by which he left all he had to Eleanor, 
his wife. It was proved at Lichfield by the widow, 8th December, 1682, and the 
inventory, the total of which was 33 4.?., was made on 14th September, by Jeffrey 
Dudley, William Ward, Thomas Dudley, and Eleanor Dudley. I do not find the 
baptism of any of his children at West Bromwich, but I have some reasons for 
believing that he was the father of a Robert Dudley, who by deed dated 1694 
(penes me) purchased some house property in Birmingham, being then " of New 
Inne in Handsworth, gent.," which deed is witnessed among others by Eleanor 
Dudley. This Robert was afterwards of Colnian Hill, Cradley, in the parish of 
Halesowen, and the Halesowen registers record the burial on 18th February, 1704-5, 
of "Eleanor Dudley of Colman Hill, widow." Robert appears to have had two 
wives, by the first of whom he had a daughter, Sarah, who was married at Hales- 
owen, 2nd September, 1707, to Richard Baker, of Kidderminster, clothier. Their 
post-nuptial settlement, penes me, is dated 1st August, 1710, and an old endorsement 
iipon it describes Robert as " Dr. Dxidley." 

The second wife of Robert Dudley was Lydia, daughter of John Pearsall, of 
Hawne, in Halesowen, and widow of Robert Bloomer, of Colnian Hill. (See Kimber 
and Johnson's Baronetage, sub "Peshall" (Vol. I, p. 122), where she is stated to 
have been born 17th July, 1659, and to have been married secondly to " Mr. Dudley 
of Dudley.") By her he had a daughter, Lydia, baptised at Halesowen, 13th October, 
1702, probably the " Lydia Dudley, of Halesowen," who was married at Dudley, 26th 
October, 1725, to Samuel Stevens. " Lydia, the wife of Robert Dudley, of Cradley," 
was buried at Halesowen, llth November, 1725, and " Robert Dudley, of Cradley," 
was buried there, 9th November, 1726. 

There was also a Jeffrey Dudley, of West Bromwich, buried there 6th July, 1704, 
administration of whose personal estate was granted from Lichfield on 21st Sep- 
tember, 1704, to Anne, his relict, and guardian of Sarah and Eleanor, his two infant 
children. The sureties were E. Hawkes and Richard Marsh, and the inventory was 
made 31st July, 1704, by Robert Dudley, Sarah Palmer, widow, and Richard Palmer. 

I do not find any record of his marriage at West Bromwich, but it appears from 
the " Staffordshire Marriages," in the William Salt Library, that a licence was issued 
in 1686 for the marriage there of Godfrey (sic) Dudley to Anne Hawkes. She 
was buried as " Anne Dudley," at West Bromwich, 9th September, 1722, and her 
will (as of West Bromwich, widow) is dated 12th May, 1722, and was proved at 
Lichfield, 26th August, 1723. She mentions her daughter, Eleanor Saunders, 
whom she makes sole executrix, and her sister, Hester Hawkes. 

I do not find at West Bromwich the baptisms of Sarah and Eleanor, but John, 
son of Jeffrey Dudley, was baptised there 20th September, 1692. 

I may as well here note that at St. Leonard's, Bridgnorth, Salop, on 8th 
February, 1699-1700, " Jeffrey Dudley, of the parish of St. Mary Magdalen, and 
Mary Chamberlain, of this parish, were married by banns," and that at St. Mary 
Magdalen, "Mary Dudley, alias Sutton," was buried, 25th March, 1711. In the 
same church too, on 21st April, 1636, Mary, daughter of Thomas Dudley w as baptised. 



DUDLEY OF EUSSELLS HALL. 13 

6. William, " son of Jeffrey Dudley, Esq.," baptised at Dudley, 

24th June, 1630, and buried there, 25th November, 1632. 

7. Elizabeth, " daughter of Jeffrey Dudley, Esq.," baptised at 

Dudley, 15th June, 1633. 

8. Mary " daughter of Jeffrey Dudley, Esq., and Elizabeth his 

wife," baptised at Dudley, 17th September, 1635. 

When Jeffrey died or where he was buried I have not dis- 
covered, but he was probably living in 1647 and certainly in. 1641, 
for in a Subsidy Roll of the latter date, under Dudley, " Jeffrey 
Sutton, gent.," paid 8s. on 20s. in terris. His eldest son, 

Thomas Dudley of Eussells is named in the Subsidy Roll of 15 
Charles II., 1663, as " Thomas Sutton of Russells," and as paying 
12s. upon 30s. in lands. His wife's name was Eleanor, and there is 
no doubt that he was the " Mr. Thomas Dudley " who was married at 
Pedmore, near Stourbridge, co. Worcester, on 14th September, 1638, 
to "M ris - Eleanor Jevon," of the Sedgley family of that name. 
He was buried at Dudley, as " Mr. Thomas Dudley of Russells 
Hall," 24th January, 1664-5, and she, as " Old Elinor Dudley, 
widow," on 31st January, 1689-90. His will, in which he is called 
"Thomas Dudley, alias Sutton," is dated January 19th, and was 
proved at Worcester in February, 1664-5. He gives all his estate, 
real and personal, to his son Thomas, and makes him sole executor. 
Thomas and Eleanor had issue, 

1. Margaret, baptised at Sedgley, as daughter of Thomas and 

Elnor Dudley, 3rd August, 1639 ; married to Thomas 
Boucher, alias Butcher, of Newport, Salop, apothecary, 
and was dead in 1724, leaving a son and heir, Joseph 
Boucher, of Birmingham, " spurrier and founder," whose 
wife's name was Elizabeth. 

2. Anna, or Hanna, baptised at Sedgley, as Ann, daughter of 

Thomas Dudley, gent., and Eleanor, 14th January, 1640-1 ; 
married to ... Parkes, and was living a widow 
" far advanced in years," at Bilston, in 1723. She died 
before October, 1724, leaving a son, Thomas Parkes, of the 
borough of Southwark, London, shoemaker (who, I think, 
died s.p.), and a daughter, Judith Parkes, married at 
Dudley, 26th November, 1698, to Benjamin Linton, of 
Bilston, baker, by whom she had issue a son and heir, 
Thomas Linton. 1 

1 By an indenture, dated 15th January 1 Geo. II., and A.D. 1727, the Lintons 
mortgaged their fifth share of Eussells Hall and lands, in consideration of 100,

whom next. 

4. Elizabeth, baptised at Sedgley, as daughter of Thomas and 

Helena Dudley, 3rd December, 1646 ; married at Dudley, 
4th April, 1670, to Edward Marsh of Dudley, " limeman," 
and died before 1724, leaving issue. 

5. Daniel, whose baptism I have not found. He was buried 

at Dudley, 22nd April, 1682, as " Daniel Button, alias 
Dudley, gent." His will, dated 17th May, 1677, was 
proved at Worcester in April, 1683. He gives to his 
mother 20 ; to his brother, Thomas Sutton, gent., 20 ; 
to his sister, Margaret Butcher, 9 ; to his sister, Hanna 
Parkes, 9 ; to his sister, Elizabeth Marsh, 9 ; to his 
sister, Mary Price, 9 ; to his sister, Eleanor Attwood, 9 ; 
to his sister, Priscilla Sutton, 9. And the sum of 6 " for 
my funeral and the decent bringing of me home." The 
above to be paid " out of moneys now held by my brother, 
Thomas Suttou, gent." He appoints his sister, Elizabeth 
Marsh, sole executrix. Will attested by Kobert Smith 
and John Smith. 

6. Jane, baptised at Sedgley, 27th April, 1652, and buried 

there next day. 

7. Eleanor, baptised at Sedgley, 2nd May, 1653 ; married at 

Dudley, 28th December, 1675, as " Eleanor Sutton, alias 
Dudley," to Eichard Attwood, and had issue. 

to Kobert Q-reisbrooke, of Shenstone, co. Stafford, gent. Judith Linton is described 
in this deed as " the daughter of Anna Parkes, of Bilston, widdow, deceased, which 
Anna was one of the aunts and co-heirs of John Dudley, late of Eussells Hall, in 
the parish of Dudley and county of Worcester, gentleman, who dyed intestate and 
without issue, whereby the lands and premises hereafter mentioned descended to 
such his co-heirs." 

By another deed, dated 12th February, 1730, made between the Lintons of the 
one part, and John Lea, of Shenstone, yeoman, and Sarah his wife, who was the 
relict, widow, and executrix of the will of Thomas Cramp, of Longdon, co. Stafford, 
gent, deceased ; which Thomas Cramp was executor of the will of the above-named 
Kobert Q-reisbrooke of the other part, the Lintons borrowed a further sum of 50. 
The deed recites the will dated 20th July, 1728, of the said Kobert Greisbrooke, 
whereby he gave to the three sons of William and Elizabeth Smith 100 a-piece, 
to the two sons and one daughter of his sister, Jemima Winterton, 100 a-piece, 
and to the three daughters of the said Thomas Cramp, 300, to be equally divided 
between them, and appointed the said Cramp, sole executor. Also Cramp's will, 
made 20th September, 1728, of which he made the aforesaid Sarah his wife (who 
was one of the sisters of Robert Greisbrooke) sole executrix. That the said John 
had afterwards, to wit 19th February, 1729, took to wife the said Sarah Cramp, 
etc., etc,

8. Mary " daughter of Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, born 

28th August, 1657 " (Dudley Eegisters) ; married at 
Dudley, as "Mary Sutton, alias Dudley," llth October, 
1675, to Thomas Price, and was dead s.p., before 1723. 

9. Priscilla, baptised at Dudley, 16th June, 1659, as daughter 

of Thomas Sutton, gent., and Eleanor his wife. She was 
married to William Hand, of Dudley, cooper, and had 
issue. He was buried at Dudley, as William Hand, 
cooper, 5th February, 1720-1, and she, as Priscilla Hand, 
widow, loth June, 1725. 

Thomas Dudley, alias Sutton, gent., of Eussells Hall, the elder 
son, 1 was buried at Dudley, 28th August, 1684. He died intestate, 
and administration of his effects was granted at Worcester, to 
Mary, his widow, on 1st June, 1685. She was probably the Mary 
Dudley, widow, who was buried at Dudley, 28th November, 1708. 
But he appears to have had a previous wife named Sarah. His 
only known child was his son John, who succeeded him at 
Russells, but the Dudley Eegisters record the following : 

1. " Bety," 2 daughter of Thomas Dudley, alias Sutton, baptised 

8th April, 1672. 

2. Sarah, daughter of Mr. Thomas Dudley, baptised 28th 

May, 1674, and buried as "Sara, daughter of Thomas 
Dudley, of Eussells, gent.," on 25th September following. 

3. Thomas, son of Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, gent., and 

Sarah, his wife, baptised 6th October, 1676, and buried 
on 4th February following. 

4. Charles, son of Thomas and Sara Sutton, alias Dudley, 

baptised 23rd August, 1678. "Mr. Charles Dudley, of 
Eussells Hall," buried 16th March, 1719-20.

of Ketherton, referred to post,

of Thomas, inherited Eussells Hall and lands, and also a small 
estate in Feckenham, co. Worcester. No doubt "the lands and 
rents within the lordship of Feckenham," 1 which Sir Gilbert 
Talbot gave to his daughter Eleanor, the wife of Jeffrey Dudley 
(see Vol. IX., part ii., p. 91). 

He married at Chaddesley-Corbett, 2 co. Worcester, on 28th 
September, 1708, Katherine, sister and sole heiress of Daniel 
Feldon, of Warley-Wigorn, in Halesowen, gent., 3 but died s.p., 
seised of Eussells Hall and lands, and was buried at Dudley, 
22nd March, 1722-3. She married secondly, at Dudley, 31st 
March, 1725, Mr. William Winter, then of Stourbridge, and was 
buried at Halesowen, as " Catherine Winter, widow, of Warley- 
Wigorn, 30th May, 1742. By her will, dated March, 1742, and 
proved in June following, she devised her estate at Waiiey and 
elsewhere, to Eichard Bloxcidge, of Birmingham, gent. 

John Dudley died intestate, and administration was granted at 
Worcester, 23rd April, 1723, to " Katherine Sutton, alias Dudley," 
his widow. His inventory is remarkable for the large quantity of 
household goods, and for the many articles which were apparently 
of a novel character for that time. There were (inter alia) old 
swords, fowling pieces, books, rings, silver plate, a caudle cup and 
flagon, mustard pots, pictures, maps, and " landskipps," bridles, 
whips, pack saddles, three " wooden horses," a " hearth stone," and 
debts due from Eichard Chelmish and Abiathar Hawkes. The 
total value of the goods was 241 17s. 6d 

1 Described in one of the deeds as " All that meece, place, or plott or parcell of 
ground, or orchard, or parcell of land, meadow, or pasture grounds, all lying and 
being together or near together, and situate, lying, and being in the parish of 
Feckenham and county of Worcester." 

2 For some reason, which I cannot explain, Chaddesley was a favourite place 
for marriages at this date. The same may be said of Pattingham, Staffordshire. 

3 This information is derived from an abstract of the title of Eichard Bloxcidge, 
to an estate at Halesowen purchased by the trustees of F. D. Lea Smith, Esq. 
Isaac Feldon was the owner of the Warley estate in 1709. He appears to have 
died s.p., and to have been succeeded by his brother Daniel, who in his turn was 
succeeded by his sister Katherine. In 1757, Mary Brown, of Handsworth, widow, 
John Orton, of Wishaw, co. Warwick, maltster, and Eebecca his wife, Samuel 
Garbett of Birmingham, wine merchant, and Anne, his wife, and Thomas Hall of 
Wishaw, husbandman, are stated to be heirs-at-law of Katherine Winter, and 
appear to have disputed Bloxcidge's title. I have not found Katherine's baptism 
at Halesowen, but Isaac, son of William and Katherine Feldon, "born 23rd 
October," was baptised there 4th November, 1660, and Daniel, son of the same, on 
3rd November 1663. The former was buried there 19th July, 1715, and the 
latter 23rd August, 1722, 



DUDLEY OF RUSSELL'S HALL. 17 

On his death his real estate came to his five aunts or their 
representatives as his co-heiresses at law, who sold it to various 
purchasers. 

In 1738, William Lord Dudley and Ward purchased four of 
five undivided parts of the estate ; these descended to Ferdinando 
Dudley Lea, Lord Dudley, as his heir at law, and subsequently 
Lord Dudley purchased the other part. The hall has long since 
been taken down, but a quantity of carved stone ornaments were 
preserved, and now adorn the gardens at the Grange House, 
Halesowen. 

From the title deeds (penes F. D. Lea Smith, Esq.), aided by 
the Dudley parish registers, I am able to give the following 
account of some of the descendants of the five co-heirs of the last 
Dudley of Russells. 



MARSH. 

Edward Marsh of Dudley, " limeman," was father by Elizabeth 
ne'e Dudley of a son and heir, Edward Marsh, also a limeman at 
Dudley, whose wife's name was Margaret. Elizabeth wife of 
Edward Marsh was buried at Dudley, 20th March, 1720-21, and 
Margaret wife of Edward Marsh on 23rd May, 1731. These 
registers record the baptisms of the following children of Edward 
Marsh, limeman, and Margaret his wife : 

1. Elizabeth, baptised 13th December, 1711 ; buried as 

" Elizabeth, a child of Edward Marsh, junior," 22nd 
January, 1711-12. 

2. Edward, baptised 31st January, 1714-15. On 23rd August, 

1738, Edward Marsh and Sarah Shurt were married. 

3. Thomas, baptised 17th February, 1716-17. Thomas, son of 

Edward Marsh, buried 6th September, 1721 

4. John, baptised 1st January, 1718-19. 

5. Richard, baptised 10th October, 1720. 

6. Margaret, baptised 9th December, 1722. 

7. Benjamin, baptised 6th February, 1724-5. 

8. Elizabeth, baptised 20th November, 1726. 

9. Thomas, baptised 29th June, 1729. 



18 DUDLEY OF RUSSELL'S HALL. 



ATT WOOD. 

Eichard Attwood, husband of Eleanor Dudley, appears to have 
been a butcher at Dudley, for Richard Attwood, butcher, was buried 
there 26th August, 1715. Eleanor his wife was living, a widow, at 
Dudley in 1724, and was dead in 1726. She was therefore no 
doubt the Eleanor Attwood who was buried at Dudley, 20th January, 
1724-5. The issue of Eichard and Eleanor, baptised at Dudley, 
were 

1. Edward, baptised 25th January, 1676-7, and buried 20th 

August, 1677. 

2. Mary, baptised 18th July, 1678, and buried as daughter of 

Eichard Attwood, 25th April, 1709. 

3. Edward, baptised 2nd September, 1680. of whom next. 

4. Eleanor, baptised 10th December, 1682, " borne 3 weeks 

before." 

5. Eichard, baptised 20th October, 1685, " borne 3 weeks 

before," buried as " Eichard child of Eichard Attwood," 
5th March, 1688-9. 

6. Katherine, baptised 2nd June, 1691. 

Edward Attwood, the only surviving son, was also a butcher at 
Dudley. He married by licence 1 dated 2nd April, 1703, being 
then a bachelor and aged twenty -two, Elizabeth Hawkes of Dudley, 
spinster, then aged twenty- one, and was buried at Dudley 15th 
November, 1711. Their children baptised at Dudley were 

1. Mary, daughter of Edward Attwood, butcher, and Elizabeth 

his wife, baptised 26th March, 1704, married to Samuel 
Greenway of Dudley, " coal carrier." 

2. Edward, baptised 6th March, 1705-6, of whom next. 

3. Katherine, baptised 20th August, and buried 23rd December, 

1708. 

4. Hannah, baptised 5th February, 1709-10, married at 

Oldswinford, co. Worcester, 18th January, 1727-8, to 
Elisha Westwood, described in 1732 as of Broseley, 
Salop, glassmaker. They had two children baptised 
at Broseley, viz. : Ann, baptised 22nd and buried 24th 
March, 1732-3, and Sarah, baptised 16th April, 1734, and 
buried 13th June, 1735.

by the Key. T. P. Wadley, M.A., printed in the " Genealogist." 



DUDLEY OF RUSSELL'S HALL. 19 

5. Elizabeth (whose baptism I have not found), married, first 
to ... James, and secondly, by licence at Dudley, on 
6th October, 1730, to Joseph Jones, "of Dudley Castle, 
yeoman," so described in a deed of 1732. 

Edward Attwood, the eldest son, came of age tirca 1726, in 
which year he is described as of Dudley, locksmith, and heir at 
law of Eleanor Attwood, his grandmother. His wife's name was 
Elizabeth, and I take him to be the Edward Attwood of Dudley 
who was married at St. Mary Magdalen's, Bridgnorth, on 9th 
October, 1727, to Elizabeth Hardwicke, of Bobbington. Edward, 
son of Edward Attwood was baptised at Dudley, 19th November, 
1728, and Elizabeth, daughter of Edward and Elizabeth Attwood, 
5th November, 1730, but I find no further entries. 



HAND. 

William Hand, of Dudley, cooper, had by Priscilla his wife the 
following issue, all baptised at Dudley: 

1. William, baptised 23rd April, 1681, 1 , ,, ,. , 

2. Katherine, baptised 8th February, 1682-3J 

3. Ann, born 13th August, 1692 ; married by licence at Dudley, 

27th December, 1724, to William Willis, of Dudley, 
collier; and was buried 9th November, 1740. 

4. Thomas, baptised 15th March, 1695-6. 

5. Mary, baptised 28th December, 1699, married by licence 

at Dudley, 27th July, 1725, to Richard Kidson (in the 
registers called Chidsori), of Kinver, cooper. 

6. Sarah (baptism not found), married to William Butler, of 

Darlaston, and had three children, Sarah, Elizabeth, and 
James, all under twenty -one in 1727. 

Thomas Hand, the only surviving son, was also a cooper at 
Dudley, where he and Mary his wife were both living in 1727. 



Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, of Netherton, gent., (vide ante 
p. 11), made his will on 3rd February, 1046-7, and it was 
proved at Worcester in August, 1647. He gives all his lands, 
houses, cattels, chattels, &c., to "Anne Sutton, alias Duddeley," 
his wife, for life, and then to Thomas his eldest son for ever, he 
paying 100 within one year after the death of the said Anne, to

20 DUDLEY OF XETHERTON, 

" Edward Sutton, alias Duddeley," the testator's youngest son, and 
an equal sum to Thomas Baker, testator's son-in-law. Anne, the 
wife, is made sole executrix. The inventory betokens a good 
establishment, and a fair supply of furniture in hall, kitchen, hall- 
chamber, parlour, upper chamber, buttery, &c. He had " ironstone 
upon the bankes at his coleworkes," implements of husbandry, oats, 
barley, rye, six kine, five calves, thirty-five sheep, &c. He was 
buried at Dudley as "Thomas Sutton, gent.," on 6th February, 1646 -7. 

Anne, his widow, was buried at Dudley as " Mrs. Anne Dudley, 
alias Sutton," on the 15th of September, 1654. Her will is dated 
8th December, 1653, but was not proved until December, 1662, 1 
at Worcester, She describes herself as " Ann Sutton, alias Dudley, 
of Dudley, widow," and desires to be buried in Dudley Church near 
her husband. To Thomas, her eldest son, she gave her lands called 
" Scotts," 2 in the parish of Dudley, for his life, and then to Eobert 
Sutton, alias Dudley, his eldest son, and if the said Eobert should 
die without male issue, then to Thomas, second son of the aforesaid 
Thomas, and in default of male issue to him, then to " Farthinandoe 
Sutton, alias Dudley," and his heirs for ever. And when the afore- 
said Eobert inherited the said lands called " Scotts," he was enjoined 
to pay to the aforesaid Thomas, and to " Farthinandoe," third son 
of the aforesaid Thomas, 10 a piece within four years after their 
father's death. 

" I give to my son, Edward Sutton, alias Dudley, one bedstead 
which my sister Elner Smyth lyeth on, and the feather bed which 
I lyeth (sic) on, and one blue coverlet, and the bigger of the two 
lesser brasse potts, &c., &c. To my daughter, Ann Baker, my best 
petticoat. To my grandchild, Thomas Baker, 5, one half of which 
to set him 'prentice when that he is able to goe, and the other half 
when that he doth come to the age of 21. To the other three grand- 
children (sic) of my daughter, Ann Baker, each of them one dish 
of pewter after my decease. To my grandchild, Eobert Sutton, 
alias Dudley, the bedstead and all the joyne ware in the chamber 
over the hall, and one of the best dishes of pewter after his father's 
death. To Margaret Dudley, my grandchild, one of my best pewter 
dishes. To Ann Sutton, alias Dudley, the same, and one chest at 

1 During the Commonwealth all wills were proved in London. It is probably 
for this reason that probate was not applied for until after the Restoration. 

" These lands would appear to have been her own freehold. She would 
seem therefore to have been an heiress (or rather a co-heiress, for she had a sister, 
Eleanor Smith), but I have in vain endeavoured to ascertain her maiden name.

my bed's feet, and one fine flaxen towel. To my grandchild, 
John Sutton, alias Dudley, one of my best dishes of pewter. To 
my daughter-in-law, Margery Dudley, wife of the aforesaid Edward 
Dudley, one ruff." Her son Thomas to be sole executor. 
The issue of Thomas and Anne were 

1. 1 Thomas, of whom next. 

2. Edward. He appears to be the Edward Dudley, alias 

Sutton, who was deforciant in a fine of lands in Dudley 
in Hilary, 1657, John Parkes being complainant. By 
Margery his wife (who was buried at Dudley, 14th June, 
1665, as wife of Edward Dudley) lie had issue a son 
John, baptised there (as son of Edward and Margery 
Sutton) 31st December, 1648. An Edward Dudley, 
whom I suppose to be this Edward, was buried at Dudley, 
27th January, 1668-9. 

i. Anne, married, as "Anne Sutton," 30th January, 1643-4, 
to Thomas Baker, by whom she had issue a son Thomas. 
Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, the eldest son, was twice married, 
first to Katherine, who (as wife of Thomas Sutton) was buried at 
Dudley, 25th June, 1653; and secondly, in 1656, to Bridget 
Rhodes. Their banns were published at Dudley, 3rd August, 1(556, 
and two Sundays after, and they were no doubt married before a 
Justice of the Peace, but there is no note of their actual marriage in 
the Dudley registers. The will of " Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, 
the elder, of Netherton, in the parish of Dudley, gent.," is dated 
23rd December, 1682, and was proved at Worcester in February 
following. He gave his lease of " Mr. Jeaven's 2 land," as also his 
personal estate (except the long table in the hall, and the wainscot 
there, and the back behind the kitchen fire) to Bridget his wife, 
during her life ; but if she married again it was to be equally 
divided' between his five daughters. To his son, John Sutton, 
alias Dudley, his dwelling-house and buildings at Netherton, and 
the land belonging thereto called " Merry Hurst," also the " long 

1 Thomas, son of Mr. Thomas Dudley, gent., was baptised at St. Thomas's, 
Dudley, 21st November, 1616 ; Edward, son of Mr. Thomas Dudley, at St. 
Kdmund's, 16th March, 1616-17, and Anne, daughter of Thomas Dudley, gent, 
at St. Edmund's, on 4th March, 1618-19. Probably these were the three children 
of Thomas and Anne, but it is difficult to say, for there was more than one Thomas 
Dudley at this date. 

2 There is a final concord of Michaelmas, 18 Charles II, 1666, in which 
Thomas Jevon, gent., is complainant, and Thomas Dudley, alias Sutton, and others, 
deforciants, of lands in Dudley.

table " before mentioned, he paying to his two brothers and five 
sisters as follows: "to my sons, Thomas and Ferdinando Button, 
alias Dudley, 5 each; and to my daughters Mary,Katherine,Bridget, 
Susanna, and Elizabeth, 6 each." His wife Bridget to be sole 
executrix, and his goods and chattels to be equally divided among 
his above-named children after her death or second marriage. To 
his son John the benefit of the lease of Jevon's land after the 
widow's death, and to his son Eobert 2s. 6d. only, he being already 
otherwise provided for. His well-beloved kinsmen, 1 Henry Dixon 
and Richard Dixon, to be overseers, and to have twelve pence each 
for their trouble. Bridget, the widow, proved the will, and as 
" Bridget Dudley, widow," was buried at Dudley, 24th October, 
1687. She died intestate, and administration of her effects was 
granted at Worcester, in November, 1687, to Mary Dudley, alias 
Suttou, spinster, her daughter. By Katherine his first wife Thomas 
had issue 

1. Robert, "son of Thomas and Catherine Sutton, baptised 

(? born) 21st December, 1640, about 5 o'clock in the 
morning " (Dudley Register), Of him next. 

2. Thomas, " son of Thomas Sutton, gent., and Catherine his 

wife," baptised 8th June, 1642 (or 1643). He had issue 

two children, Thomas 2 and Elizabeth, both living in 1694. 

3. Ferdinando, " son of Thomas and Catherine Sutton," 

1 They were probably kinsmen of his wife Bridget, for the Dudley registers 
show that Henry Dixon married 22nd September, 1639, Margaret " Koode," and that 
they had issue (inter alios) Henry, baptised 8th February, 1642-3, and Kichard, 
baptised 25th, May, 1644. " Old Henry Dixon was buried 7th July, 1678." 

2 Thomas, son of Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, gent., was baptised at Dudley, 
6th September, 1674, and "Bety," daughter of the same, 8th April, 1672. On 5th 
November, 1680, Margery, the wife of Thomas Dudley, gent., was buried. 

Thomas Dudley and Esther Pitt were married by licence, 14th December, 1696. 
Esther, wife of Thomas Dudley, was buried 7th March, 1728-9, and " Thomas 
Dudley at Springmore " (almost identical with " Scotts ") was buried 10th 
September, 1729. It would seem from the Dudley registers that Thomas and 
Esther had the following issue, though it is of course possible that Thomas 
Dudley and Thomas Sutton were two different persons : 

1. Katherine, daughter of Thomas and Esther Dudley, baptised 14th March, 

1696-7 (just three months after marriage !). Katherine, daughter of 
Thomas and Esther Dudley, buried 26th May, 1724. 

2. Margaret, daughter of Thomas Sutton, nailor, and Esther, born 13th April, 

1699, and baptised 1st February, 1701-2, ou the same day as her 
brother Thomas. 

3 Thomas, son of Thomas Sutton nailor, and Esther, baptised 1st February, 

1701-2. 



DUDLEY OF NETHERTON. 23 

baptised 19th December, 1 650. There is a licence at 
Worcester, dated 21st August, 1681, for the marriage of 
Ferdinando Dudley, of Dudley, aged about twenty-five, 
nayler, and Joan Dixon, 1 of the same place, about forty, 
widow. This marriage is recorded in the parish registers 
of Halesowen as having been solemnized there on 2 1st 
August, 1681. The age of the bridegroom, it will be 
seen, is understated: he was upwards of thirty in 1681. 
He had issue by this lady, a daughter, Anne (mentioned 
in her uncle Robert's will, 1689), who was baptised at 
Dudley, as daughter of Ferdinando Dudley, alias Sutton 
on 16th July, 1682. 
i. Eleanor, " daughter of Mr. Thomas and Catherine Dudley," 

baptised 8th July, 1645. 

ii. Anne, " daughter of Thomas Sutton, gent., and Mrs. 
Catherine," baptised 26th December, 1647. She was 
unmarried in 1680, when she proved the will of her 
sister Margaret, and (with her son Nicholas) is referred 
to in the will of her brother Robert as " my late sister, 
Ann Gilberts." It appears from the parish register of 
Rowley Regis that " Nicholas Gilborde and Ann Dudley 
of Dudley" were married there 30th January, 1680-81. 

4. Ferdinando, son of Thomas Dudley, nailor, and Hester, baptised 17th June, 
1705. 

The latter may, I think, be identified with the Ferdinando Dudley who was 
married, 3rd August, 1724, to Phoebe Eolinson, and had a son Ferdinando, baptised 
30th October, 1726, and buried 1st June, 1727. Phoebe, wife of Ferdinando 
Dudley, was buried 22nd March, 1727-8 ; and on 1st October, 1730, he married 
Ann King, by whom he had the following issue, all baptised as children of 
Ferdinando and Ann : 

1. Salway, a daughter, baptised 15th August, 1731. 

2. Judith baptised 14th January, 1732-2; married 2nd November, 1751, to 

Titus Newcomb, and had (with other issue) a son, Ferdinando Dudley 
Newcomb, baptized 8th May, 1757. 

3. " Elizabeth, daughter of Ferdinando Dudley, buried " 14th March, 1734-5. 

4. William, baptised 18th April, 1736. 
6. Ferdinando, baptised 3rd April, 1738. 

6. Catherine, baptised 31st August, 1740, and buried 15th December, 1742. 

Anne, the wife of Ferdinando Dudley Dudley (tc), was buried 6th March, 1741-2, 
and on 8th January, 1750-51, he married a third wife, Phoebe Henley, by whom he 
had no further issue. He was buried 25th May, 1752, and Phoebe Dudley, probably 
his widow, was married to Thomas Bagley, 1st October, 1753. 

1 She was the widow of Oliver Dixon, of Dudley. By him she was mother of 
an only daughter, Mary, married to Christopher Robinson of Dudley, ancestor of 
Brooke Robinson, Esq., M.P. for Dudley. 



24 DUDLEY OF NETHEHTON. 

iii. Margaret, whose baptism I have not found. She appears 
from her will to have resided at Islington, but she died 
at Dudley and was buried there 18th May, 1680, as 
"Margaret Sutton, alias Dudley, spinster." Her said 
will, in which she is called of the parish of St. Mary, 
Islington, spinster, is dated 13th April, 1680, and was 
proved at Worcester by her sister and sole executrix, 
Ann Dudley, in the following August. She gave the 
said Ann Dudley all her wearing apparel, &c., and 
divided the rest of her effects between her and her 
brothers Robert, Thomas, and Ferdinando. The inventory 
was made by Margery Dudley and Mary Dixon. 
The further issue of Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, by his second 
wife Bridget were 

1. John, son of Thomas and Bridget Dudley, alias Sutton, 

baptised 10th January, 1659-60. 

i. Mary, daughter of Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, born 
28th August, 1657. Administratrix of her mother, 1687, 
and then unmarried, 
ii. Katherine, daughter of Thomas and Bridget Sutton, alias 

Dudley, baptised (July ?) 24th, 1659. 
iii. Bridget, daughter of Thomas and Bridget Sutton, alias 

Dudley, baptised 29th March, 1663. 

iv. Susanna, whose baptism I have not found. She is men- 
tioned in her father's will, and was party to the adminis- 
tration bond of her mother, 1687, and then unmarried, 
v. Elizabeth, mentioned in her father's will. She is probably 
the Elizabeth, daughter of Mr. Thomas Sutton, alias 
Dudley, who was baptised at Dudley 23rd August, 1667. 
Robert Sutton, alias Dudley, the eldest son of Thomas and 
Catherine, inherited the lands called " Scotts," and therefore, as his 
father puts it in his will, was " provided for." He married (being 
then in his forty-sixth year), at Dudley, 21st November, 1686, as 
"Robert Sutton, alias Dudley," Mary, widow of John Hill, of Dudley, 
but died s.p., and was buried at Dudley, 13th February, 1689-90. 
In his will, made in January, 1689, he calls himself " gentleman," 
but the inventory describes him as a nailor. He gives to Nicholas 
Gilberts, son of his late sister, Ann Gilberts, os. " to make up the 
money of his which I have in trust for him; to my brother 
Ferdinando, for the use of the said Nicholas, my chest with three 
locks and tw r o drawers, when lie shall come of age, or at the death 



DUDLEY OF NETHEUTON. 25 

of Mary my wife. To Ann Sutton, alias Dudley, daughter of my 
brother Ferdinando, two joined chairs which were mine before I 
was married, to be delivered to her when she is of age, or at the 
death of my wife. To Mary, my wife, the third part of all those 
four closes of land called ' Scotts' Farm,' or ' Scotts' Tenement,' in 
the manor and foreign of Dudley, for her life." He also gives his 
residue to his said wife, and makes her his sole executrix. The 
will was proved at Worcester, in March, 1689-90. 

Mary his widow was buried at Dudley as Mary Sutton, alias 
Dudley, widow, 3rd December, 1698. She also made a will dated 
7th January, 1694, and proved at Worcester in April, 1699. What 
she had to leave she chiefly bequeathed to her two daughters, 
Honor, the wife of William Fieldhouse, and Lydia, 1 the wife of 
Koger Clifton, nailer, and their children. She gives certain dishes 
of pewter to " Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley, son of my brother-in- 
law, Thomas Sutton, alias Dudley," and to Elizabeth, daughter of 
her said brother-in-law, " the pewter dishes which were the property 
of my late husband, Robert Sutton, alias Dudley." 

Male descendants of this branch no doubt still exist in " illus- 
trious obscurity," but I dare not attempt to trace them out. 

I think it probable, however, that John Dudley, eldest son of 
Thomas by his second wife Bridget, may be identical with " John 
Dudley, alias Sutton, of Coseley, nailor," who was buried at 
Dudley 26th December, 1684. Administration of his goods was 
granted at Lichfield on 1st May, 1685, to " Hester Dudley, alias 
Sutton, widow," his relict. Nicholas Persehouse, Cornelius White- 
house, and William Whitehouse made his inventory. Thomas, 
son of John and Hester Dudley, alias Sutton, of Coseley, was 
baptized at Sedgley 31st July, 1684, and a John Dudley was 
married to Hester Hickman at Halesowen on 25th October, 1683. 



DUDLEY, ALIAS TOMLINSON. 

An account of the natural issue of Edward Lord Dudley by his 
" concubine " Elizabeth, daughter of William Tomlinson of Dudley, 
certified by Dud Dudley, was recorded at the Visitation of Stafford- 
shire in 1663-4, and has already been printed, with notes by the 
present writer, in Vol. V, part 2, p. 114, of these " Collections." 

1 Lydia, daughter of John and Mary Hill, was baptised at Dudley, 23rd April, 
1657, and married there to Roger Clifton, 25th July, 1677. 



26 DUDLEY, ALIAS TOMLINSON. 

But it is thought desirable here to repeat that pedigree, with 
the addition of such further information as the writer has been 
able to procure since the publication of the aforesaid Visitation. 

These children were 

1. Eobert Dudley, of whom hereafter. 

2. John Dudley, who died young. 

3. Edward Dudley, who died issueless before 1638. He had 

lands in Tipton settled upon him with remainder, in 
default of male issue, to his brother Eobert. 

4. Dud Dudley, " Colonell of a regiment in the Army of 

King Charles I, and Generall of the Ordnance to Prince 
Maurice for his said Ma ties . Service." He entered and 
signed the pedigree at Wolverhampton on the 10th 
April, 1663, being then of Tipton. Of him next, 
i. Elizabeth Dudley, married in 1611 to Jeffery Dudley, of 

Russells Hall (vide ante p. 11). 

ii. Jane Dudley, married at Tipton (as " Jane Button, alias 
Dudley") on 19th October, 1609, to Eichard Parkes, 
Parkeshouse, or Persehouse, of Sedgley (one of the 
esquires to Sir Ferdinando Dudley when he was made 
Knight of the Bath), and had, with other issue, a son, 
Edward Parkhouse, or Persehouse, of Nether Gornall, in 
Sedgley, one of the coroners for the county of Stafford, 
who died 13th May, 1685, aged 75, leaving issue. (See 
Vis. Staff., 1663-4, in Staff Coll., V, pt. 2, p. 236.) 

iii. Catherine, married to Thomas Dudley of Tipton. (For 
their issue, &c., vide post.} 

iv. Alice Dudley, married at Tipton 13th October, 1612, to 
George Gest, or Guest, of the Hole, co Worcester. 

v. Dorothy Dudley, married to Thomas Brookes, of Sedgley. 1 

vi. Susan, died young. 

vii. Martha Dudley [Qy. baptised at St. Edmund's, Dudley, as 
" Martha, daughter to Lord Dudley," 12th March,! 603-4 ?] 
married to Thomas "Wilmer, Esq., of Dudley, eldest son 



1 There was a Chancery suit temp. Charles I., wherein Dorothy Brookes, widow, 
was plaintiff, and Thomas Dudley defendant ; hut unfortunately the only document 
that I hare been able to find in the Public Record Office is the undated replication 
of Dorothy Brookes, which is very short, and simply states that all the allegations 
in her Bill of Complaint were true, and that she was prepared to prove their 
accuracy (Bb. 170, 35).

of Thomas Wilmer, Esq., by Aime, widow of Francis 
Throckmorton, Esq., and only daughter of Edward Lord 
Dudley, by his first wife, Katherine Brydges, daughter of 
John Lord Chandos. (See IX, pt. 2, pp. 105, 106). 
Thomas Wilmer was buried at Dudley 30th March, 1680, 
and his wife Martha, 21st June, 1651. They had issue 
three surviving daughters and co-heiresses, viz. : 

1. Elizabeth, baptised at Dudley, llth August, 1623, married 

to Gilbert Gellians, or Jellians, of Dudley, 1 and was 
buried 9th May, 1709. 

2. Anne, married to Thomas Brettell, who died at Upper 

Arley, co. Stafford, when administration of his effects was 
granted to her from Worcester, llth May, 1681. 

3. Martha, baptised at Dudley, 17th September, 1629 ; married 

there 5th January, 1658-9, to Eev. John Taylor 2 , Vicar 

of Dudley, and died without surviving male issue. Mr. 

Taylor married secondly, 24th October, 1666, Mary, 

daughter of Thomas Payton of Dudley, and had issue. 

Administration of the effects of Thomas Wilmer was granted 

from Worcester to his daughter, Anne Brettell, on 20th May, 1681.

1643 ; married 2nd July, 1663, to Oliver Dixon of Dudley, and was buried 5th 
March, 1715-16, leaving issue ; (2) Elizabeth, baptised 9th February, 1645-6,

petitions presented by him to the King, and preserved in the 
Public Record Office, are set forth by Dr. Smiles in his "Industrial 
Biography." From this and other sources I abridge the following 
narrative. 

He was born about the year 1599, and was studying at Balliol 
College, Oxford, in 1619, being then, he informs us, twenty years 
old, 1 when he was sent for by his father to " look and manage " three 
ironworks in the Chase of Pensnet. Finding wood scarce in the 
neighbourhood, his attention was directed to the employment of 
pit coal as a substitute, and, as he tells us, he " made iron to profit " 
therewith. Finding his invention a success, " I wrote (says he) 
unto my father what I had done, and withall desired him to obtain 
a pattent for it from King James of blessed memory." He inserts 
a copy of his father's reply dated 19th March, 1619. It commences 
" Son Dudley," and is signed, " Your loving father, Edward 
Dudley." The request was readily granted, and the patent, dated 
22nd February, 1620, was taken out in the name of Lord Dudley. 

In the aforesaid letter Lord Dudley mentions that as the King 
was then at Newmarket, he had sent Parkes thither to some friends 
of his " to move the King's Majesty for the patent," and Dud 
informs us that the Parkes referred to was " Richard Parkes & 
Parkes-house, Esq.," the author's brother-in-law. He subsequently 
speaks of Edward Parkshouse, his nephew, his "brother 
Folliott, Esq." in another place called his "brother Aymore 
Folliott, Esq." and his " kinsman, Master Francis Dingley." I am 
quite unable to say how Mr. Folliott was his " brother, 2 " but Francis 
Dingley was related to his wife, whose mother was a member of 
that family. 

His fortunes and misfortunes in trade are fully set out in his 
book, to which the reader is referred, but his military career is not 
so well known, and to that I now turn. 

It appears from a petition presented by him to Charles II, just 

London, printed by T.M. for the Author, 1665." A reprint of this curious work 
was issued in 1854 by the late J. If. Bagnall, Esq. 

1 In another place in his book he informs us that he was sixty-one years of age in 
1660. His age is left blank in the Visitation "JLt. . . . ann. a 1663." 

2 Sir John Folliott, of Pirton, co. Worcester, knighted 1603 ; married Elizabeth, 
daughter of John Aylmer, Bishop of London, by whom he was father of Aylmer 
Folliott, who married Barbara, daughter of Edward Smalbroke, of Yardley, and had 
issue (according to Nash, " Hist. Wore.," II, 158) a son of the same name who 
died unmarried. Aylmer Folliott, Esq., was of Blakesley Hall, Yardley, co. 
V"orcester, in 1638. 



DUDLEY, ALIAS TOMLINSON. 20 

after the Eestoration, setting forth his sufferings in the Eoyal 
cause, and praying to be restored to certain offices which he had 
enjoyed under Charles I, that as early as the year 1637 he had been 
employed by the King on a mission into Scotland in the train of 
the Marquis of Hamilton, the King's Commissioner. Again in 
1639, leaving his ironworks and partners, he accompanied Charles 
on his expedition across the Scotch border, and was present with 
the army until its discomfiture at Newburn, near Newcastle, in the 
following year. 

"He was sworn Surveyor of the Mews or Armory in 1640, but being 
unable to pay for the patent, another was sworn in his place. Yet his loyalty 
did not falter, for in the beginning of 1642, when Charles set out from 
London, shortly after the fall of Strafford and Laud, Dud went with him. 
He was present before Hull when Sir John Hotham shut its gates in the 
King's face ; at York when the Eoyal Commissioners of array were sent out 
enjoining all loyal subjects to send men, arms, money, and horses, for defence 
of the King, and the maintenance of the law ; at Nottingham, where the royal 
standard was raised ; at Coventry, where the townspeople refused the King 
entrance, and fired upon his troops from the walls ; at Edgehill, where the 
first great but indecisive battle was fought between the contending parties ; 
in short, as Dud Dudley states in his petition, he was ' in most of the batailes 
in that year, and also supplyed his late sacred majestie's magazines of Stafford, 
Worcester, Dudley Castle, and Oxford with arms, shot, drakes, and cannon ; 
and also became major unto Sir Francis Worsley's regiment, which was much 
decaied.' 

" In 1643, according to the statement contained in his petition above referred 
to, Dud Dudley acted as military engineer in setting out the fortifications of 
Worcester and Stafford, and furnishing them with ordnance. After the taking 
of Lichfield, in which he had a share, he was made Colonel of Dragoons, and 
accompanied the Queen with his regiment to the royal headquarters at 
Oxford. 1 The year after we find him at the siege of Gloucester, then at the 
first battle of Newbury, leading the forlorn hope with Sir George Lisle, after- 
wards marching with Sir Charles Lucas into the associate counties, and present 
at the royalist rout at Newport. 

" That he was esteemed a valiant and skilful officer is apparent from the 
circumstance that in 1645 he was appointed General of Prince Maurice's train 

1 On 1st July, 1644, when the royalist forces, under Lord Hastings, were 
defeated by Lord Grey at Bosworth on the very spot where Richard III was 
slain a " Lieutenant-Colonel Dudley " was present with the royalists, and among 
those taken prisoners was "Cornet Thomas Dudley " (see Nichols's "Leicestershire," 
IV, 558). Who the latter was I do not know. He could hardly have been 
Dud's brother-in-law, Thomas of Tipton, who would then be in his fifty-third year, 
for he was evidently a Roundhead. I may here mention that in May preceding a 
" Captain Dudley " is reported to have been slain by the Roundheads under Fox, 
" the Tinker," in a skirmish near Birmingham. (See Willmore's " History of 
Walsall," p. 316, quoted from the " Parliamentary Scout " of 23rd May, 1644.)

of artillery, and afterwards held the same rank under Lord Ashley. The 
iron districts being still for the most part occupied by the royal armies, our 
military engineer turned his practical experience to account by directing the 
forging of drakes of bar iron, which were found of great use, giving up his 
own dwelling-house in the city of Worcester for the purpose of carrying on 
the manufacture of these and other arms. But Worcester and the western 
towns fell before the Parliamentarian armies in 1646, and all the ironworks 
belonging to royalists, from which the principal supplies of arms had been 
drawn by the king's army, were forthwith destroyed. 

" Dudley fully shared in the dangers and vicissitudes of that trying period, 
and bore his part throughout like a valiant soldier. For two years nothing 
was heard of him, until in 1648, when the king's party drew together again, 
and made head in different parts of the country, north and south. Goring 
raised his standard in Essex, but was driven by Fairfax into Colchester, 
where he defended himself for two months. While the siege was in progress, 
the royalists determined to make an attempt to raise it. On this, Dud Dudley 
again made his appearance in the field, and, joining sundry other counties, he 
proceeded to raise 200 men, mostly at his own charge. They were, however, 
no sooner mustered in Bosco Bello Woods, near Madeley, than they were 
attacked by the Parliamentarians, and dispersed or taken prisoners. Dud was 
among those so taken, and he was first carried to Hartlebury Castle, and thence 
to Worcester, where he was imprisoned. Recounting the sufferings of himself 
and his followers on this occasion, in the petition presented to Charles II in 
1660, he says, ' 200 men were dispersed, killed, and some taken, namely, 
Major Harcourt, Major Elliotts, Captain Long, and Cornet Hodgetts, of whom 
Major Harcourt was miserably burned with matches. The petitioner and 
the rest were stripped almost naked, and in triumph and scorn carried 
up to the city of Worcester, and kept close prisoners with double guards set 
upon the prison and the city.' 

" Notwithstanding this close watch and durance, Dudley and Elliotts con- 
trived to break out of gaol, making their way over the tops of the houses, 
afterwards passing the guards at the city gates, and escaping into the open 
country. Being hotly pursued, they travelled during the night, and took to 
the trees during the day-time. They succeeded in reaching London, but only 
to drop again into the lion's mouth ; for, first Major Elliotts was captured, 
then Dudley, and both were taken before Sir John Warner, the Lord Mayor 
(A.D. 1648), who forthwith sent them before 'the cursed committee of insur- 
rection,' as Dud calls them. The prisoners were summarily sentenced to be 
shot to death, and were meanwhile closely imprisoned in the Gate-house 1 at 
Westminster, with other Royalists. 

" The day before their intended execution, the prisoners formed a plan of 
escape. It was Sunday morning, the 20th August, 1648, when they seized 
their opportunity 'at ten of the clocke in sermon time ;' and, overpowering 
the gaolers, Dudley, with Sir Henry Bates, Major Elliotts, Captain South, 
Captain Pares, and six others, succeeded in getting away, and making again 
for the open country. Dudley had received a wound in the leg, and could

only get along with great difficulty. He records that he proceeded on 
crutches, through Worcester, Tewkesbury, and Gloucester, to Bristol, having 
been ' fed three weeks in private in an enemy's hay -mow.' Even the most 
lynx-eyed Parliamentarian must have failed to recognize the quondam 
royalist general of artillery in the helpless creature dragging himself along 
upon crutches ; and he reached Bristol in safety. 

" His military career now over, he found himself absolutely penniless. 
His estate of about 200 per annum had been sequestrated and sold * by the 
government ; his house in Worcester had been seized, and his sickly wife 
turned out of doors ; and his goods, stock, great shop, and ironworks, which 
he himself valued at 2,000, were destroyed. He had also lost the offices of 
Serjeant-at-Arms, Lieutenant of Ordnance, and Surveyor of the Mews, which 
he had held under the king ; in a word he found himself reduced to a state of 
utter destitution. 

" Dudley was for some time under the necessity of living in great privacy 
at Bristol ; 2 but when the King had been executed, and the Royalists were 
fioally crushed at Worcester, he gradually emerged from his concealment. 
He was still the sole possessor of the grand secret of smelting iron with pit 
coal, and he resolved upon one more commercial adventure, in the hope of 
yet turning it to good account. He succeeded in inducing Walter Stevens, 
linendraper, and John Stone, merchant, both of Bristol, to join him as 
partners in an ironwork, which they proceeded to erect near that city. The 
buildings were well advanced, and nearly 700 had been expended, when a 
quarrel occurred between Dudley and his partners, which ended in the 
stoppage of the works, and the concern being thrown into Chancery. Dudley 
alleges that the other partners ' cunningly drew him into a bond,' and ' did 
unjustly enter staple actions in Bristol of great value against him, because he 
was of the King's party ;' but it would appear as if there had been some twist 
or infirmity of temper in Dudley himself, which prevented him from working 
harmoniously with such persons as he became associated with in affairs of 
business." 

At the Kestoration Dud Dudley petitioned the King for a 
restoration of his patent, as also for compensation in respect of his 
heavy losses during the civil wars ; and he asked to be restored to 
his former office of Serjeant-at-Arms, Lieutenant of Ordnance, &c. 
In another petition he solicits the appointment of master of the 

1 The purchaser of his sequestrated estate was one Major Wildman, who, he 
says in his " Metallum Martis," " more barbarous to me than a wild man (although 
a minister) bought the author's estate, near 200 per annum, intending to compel 
from the author his inventions of making of iron with pit-cole ; but afterwards 
passed my estate unto two barbarous brokers of London, that pulled down the 
author's two mantion houses, sold 500 timber trees off his land, and to this day 
are his houses unrepaired" (Reprint, p. 18). 

2 While in concealment he for some time passed as a physician under the name 
of " Dr. Hunt," as appears from the depositions of Bridget Stephens, in 1661, who 
adds that, hearing that he had "skill in physick," she sent for him to attend upon 
her. (Ex inf. the late C. H Bayley, of West Bromwich.)

Charter House in Smithfield, and prays that a dwelling-house in 
Worcester, belonging to one Baldwin, " a known traitor," may be 
assigned to him in lieu of Alderman Nash's, which had reverted to 
that individual since his return to loyalty. The result of these 
petitions was that he was re-appointed to the office of Serjeant-at- 
Arms, but was unsuccessful in his application for the mastership 
of the Charter House. 

" A few years later (says Smiles) he seems to have succeeded 
in obtaining the means of prosecuting his original intention, for in 
his ' Metallum Martis,' published in 1665, he describes himself 
as living at Green's Lodge in Staffordshire ; and he says that near 
it are four forges, Green's forge, Swin forge, Heath forge, and 
Cradley forge, where he practises his ' perfect invention.' " 

Dud was engaged in several chancery suits, both as plaintiff 
and defendant, and in some of them he appears in a less favourable 
light than in Dr. Smiles's narrative. I do not propose to give all 
these proceedings in extenso, but some of them are so interesting 
that I venture to give copious extracts. The first in point of date 
is a bill of complaint dated 23rd May, 1631, addressed by " Dudd 
Dudley of Tipton, gent.," to Lord Keeper Coventry. 

" Your Orator " sets forth that whereas he is or ought to be 
lawfully entitled to divers messuages, lands, ironworks, and works 
of stone and coal in Tipton, Sedgley, Kingswinford, Rowley Regis, 
and Oldbury, in the counties of Stafford and Worcester, those in 
Tipton called " Tipton Park " or " Parkfield," of the yearly value 
of 28, which were purchased by Elizabeth Tomlinson, your said 
orator's late mother, from divers persons, and conveyed to him and 
and his heirs (as by the writings, if the same might be produced, 
would fully appear), and of and in a certain farm called " Priory 
Lands " in Sedgley, heretofore demised by the Right Hon. Edward 
Lord Dudley to Richard Perkshouse, Esq., deceased, for divers 
years yet to come, determinable on certain lives yet in being, at 
a yearly rent of 40. Also " Green's Farm," in the parish of 
Wombourne, demised to Robert Dudley, brother of your orator, 
for divers years yet to come, determinable on certain lives yet in 
being, in trust to and for the use of your orator who hath paid 
valuable consideration for the same. Also certain waste ground 
called " Pensnet Chase," lying in Sedgley, Kingswinford, and 
Himley, and containing 2,000 acres, heretofore demised by the 
said Lord Dudley to one John Smallman for divers years yet to 
come, to and for the use of your orator to dig and open mines, 



DUDLEY ALIAS TOMLINSON. 33 

make pits, &c. And your said Orator, at great costs and charges, 
hath erected a furnace and ironwork and divers coal works upon 
the said last-mentioned premises, so as, by his great labour and 
industry, the same are much improved and now become of the 
yearly value of 400, or thereabouts. 

And whereas the said Elizabeth Tomlinson was in her lifetime 
possessed of a great personal estate in ready money, plate, &c., 
amounting to 600 or more, and she, being thereof so possessed 
and having other children besides your Orator which were all 
sufficiently provided for, did by her deed on or about seven years 
past, upon and tor your Orator's maintenance and preferment, or 
marriage, give the said goods and chattels to your Orator; and 
afterwards, that is to say about two years past, the said Elizabeth 
died. 

Now so it is, that sithence her decease one Thomas Dudley and 
Henry Jevon, by the procurement and instigation of the said 
Edward Lord Dudley, and by combination had between them the 
said Lord Dudley, Thomas Dudley, and Henry Jevon, have given 
out and published that the said Elizabeth Tomlinson made her last 
will and testament and did thereby give and bequeath her said 
personal estate to the rest of her children contrary to the aforesaid 
deed, and that she made the said Thomas Dudley and Henry Jevon 
her executors. 

And albeit the said Dudley and Jevon have made no proof of 
the will, yet by colour thereof they have taken possession of the 
said estate with the intention of defrauding and defeating your 
Orator of the same. And not contented hereof, the said Lord 
Dudley, Thomas Dudley, and Henry Jevon, by the like combination, 
have in a most violent and outrageous manner entered upon the 
said lands and expelled your Orator out and from the same ; and 
have also, about a year ago, wrongtully entered into your Orator's 
dwelling house at Tipton and possessed themselves of all his deeds, 
evidences, and writings, and also forcibly carried away his stock of 
ironstone and coals, with the tools and implements belonging 
thereto, and at sundry times have dangerously assaulted, hurt, and 
beaten your said Orator, or caused him to be so assaulted and 
beaten. 

In the joint and several answers of Thomas Dudley and Henry 
Jevon, sworn at Walsall 5th September, 7 Charles I, 1631. before 
William Wilson and Eobert Howell, these two defendants admit 
that Elizabeth Tomlinson had a personal estate, but of what value 

c 



34 DUDLEY ALIAS TOMLINSON. 

they know not, but say not of such great value as alleged in the 
Bill. They add that the said Elizabeth being visited with sick- 
ness whereof she afterwards died, did by word only, without 
writing, will and declare how and in what manner her said personal 
estate should be disposed of after her decease, which was to the 
purpose and effect following, that is to say, she did will and 
bequeath to her six daughters all her wearing apparel, the best of 
them to have the best, and the rest to have as much in value 
allowed unto them. Also she did will and bequeath to Edward 
Bagley, son of John Bagley, 30, and to Dud.de Bagley his brother 
20, to be paid so soon as her executors of her said will could pay 
the same. Also she did then will and bequeath to Thomas Bagley 
and Eobert Bagley, sons of the said John Bagley, 20s. a-piece, and 
to the poor people of Dudley all the money to her belonging which 
was then in the hands of her son Dudd Duddeley the now com- 
plainant. And further she willed that Gilbert Gyllians and Ann 
Eodes should be paid all that was then by her due unto them. 
And further she willed that her son, the now complainant, should 
not see her writings, because, as she said, he might do something 
wrong. And all the rest and residue of her goods, catties, and 
chattels, as well moveable as unmoveable (her debts and legacies 
being paid, and her funeral charges defrayed and disbursed), she 
then gave and bequeathed to her eight children to be equally 
divided amongst them. And of the same her will and testament 
she, the same Elizabeth, did then ordain and make these now 
defendants, Thomas Duddeley, her son-in-law, and Henry Jevon, 
her servant, her executors, and shortly afterwards died. After 
whose death these defendants, willing to perform the said will, 
took upon them the charge of executorship, but as yet have not 
proved the will, but are willing to prove the same when they shall 
be thereto called by the Ordinary. 

They add that they had called together the children of the 
testatrix at her house in Tipton, and arranged for a division in 
accordance with the terms of the will, and that they had paid the 

following debts of the deceased, viz. :

Benjamin Hodgetts 14 6 

Edward Jevon .... 056 



DUDLEY ALIAS TOMLINSOX. 35 

Besides these sums paid, there be divers other debts demanded 
by divers other persons of these defendants as such executors for 
money due to them by the said testatrix, as namely, by Mr. Gefferey 
Duddeley 14, by Mr. Eobert Duddeley 40, and by the com- 
plainant himself. The reply concludes with an inventory of the 
deceased's effects comprising live and dead stock both at Tipton 
and Hiinley. 

Some five years later, viz., 14th January, 1637, the church- 
wardens and overseers of the poor of the town of Dudley exhibit 
their bill against "Dudd Duddeley alias Tomlinson, gent." The 
bill recites that Elizabeth Tomlinson, late of Tipton, died about 
live or six years ago seised of a " great p'sonall estate consisting of 
ready money, plate, Jewells, rings, debtes due unto her," &c., to 
the value of 1,500. That she made a nuncupative will in the 
presence of Thomas Dudley, gent., and Henry Jevon, whom she 
made her executors, and that by her said will she bequeathed 
(inter alia) the sum of 50 to the poor of Dudley. And the said 
executors did faithfully promise that they would perform her said 
will, and would pay the 50, and they caused the said gift to be 
published in one or both of the churches in Dudley. But in 
combination with one Dud Dudley, alias Tomlinson, they have 
converted the whole of the said estate to their own private use, 
and do utterly refuse to pay the sum so bequeathed, or to prove 
the will. 

Dud in his answer, sworn 15 Feb., 1637, admits that the said 
Elizabeth Tomlinson was so seised, but he does not know when she 
died or whether she made a will (for he had not been in her house 
for some time before her death) but Thomas Dudley, gent., and 
Henry Jevon ' tould him soe/ and said they were executors, and 
they entered upon the said goods and estate as such executors, 
contrary, as this defendant believes, to all right and good confidence. 
For they, or one of them did bear witness to a deed of gift, which 
the said Elizabeth made to this defendant by which she provided 
and settled all her children at that time. 

He adds that Thomas Dudley and Henry Jevon told him that 
the said Elizabeth had acknowledged to them that she had made 
the aforesaid deed of gift of her personal estate to him this 
defendant. And he has preferred a bill in this Honourable Couit 
against the said Dudley and Jevon to obtain possession of the said 
personal estate. The bill had accused him of having cut timber 
upon the estate, and in reply he says that Thomas Doughtie, gent., 

c2 



36 DUDLEY ALIAS TOMLINSON. 

being partner with this defendanc in an iron work, had cut wood 
for the use of the same, but that this wood was defendant's own and 
was fallen upon lands in Tipton belonging to him. His brother 
Eobert Dudley, he adds, hath acknowledged to have in his hands 
30 value of timber. 

By an inquisition, taken 24th September, 1638, it was found that 
Elizabeth Tomlinson by her nuncupative will dated 3rd July, 1629 
(she was buried at Dudley on the following day) had given between 
40 and 50 which Mr. Dudley owed her, to the poor of Dudley, 
and that it had been agreed that a certain horse of the testatrix 
should be sold to make up the sum for the use aforesaid. By a 
decree made in pursuance of the said inquisition the 50 was 
ordered to be paid to Richard Foley, the elder, and by him invested 
for the benelit of the poor. Mr. Foley added " something of his own " 
to this 50 and with it founded a school in Dudley for 50 boys and 
" built a convenient school house," the famous Richard Baxter being 
the first master. 

In 1631, Bill dated 21st November, " Dudd Dudley of Tipton " 
was in suit with this Richard Foley, described as " a great dealer in 
iron." Dud states that about four years since he was lawfully 
interested and possessed of and in certain mines, or delfes, of sea 
coal and pit coal in Sedgley, and that about the month of November, 
3 Charles I., 1627, Foley agreed to take a lease of the said mines, at 
a minimum royalty of " 12 pence each for 1000 bloomes or loades 
of iron stone to be yearly gotten." Under this lease, it may be in- 
teresting to note, Foley was to pay the annual rents of "80 for the 
furnace and 40 for the cole works, and 12 pence the bloome de claro." 
Foley's answer is dated 1st December, 1631. It is a mere matter 
of account, and therefore of no historical interest. 

In 1635 we find Dud actually claiming the manor of Himley. 
I have not found the Bill of Complaint, but from sundry answers 
preserved in the Public Record Office to evidently the same bill, it 
appears that in or about the year 1625 Edward Lord Dudley had 
made a deed to Thomas Dudley and William Coxe of the manor of 
Himley in trust for Dud. In March 1635 the said Lord Dudley, in 
consideration of 20 paid by Thomas Harcourt, gent., by the 
direction and appointment of Thomas Parkes, Esq., leased Himley 
Hall for a year to the said Harcourt. 

The latter entered and was in quiet possession for four days in 
trust for Parkes, when Dud Dudley and divers unknown persons, 
on 2nd April, 1635, forcibly entered upon the premises, ejected 



DUDLEY ALIAS TOMLINSON. 37 

Harcourt, and had since retained possession of the said Manor House 
of Himley under colour of the aforesaid alleged conveyance of 1625. 
Humble Ward, who was one of the defendants, in his answer dated 
30 June, 1635, saith that he doth not conceive that the complainant 
hath any right to the manor of Himley, for that the said Lord 
Dudley, under whom complainant pretends to claim, had settled 
the estate upon this defendant on his marriage with Frances the 
said Lord Dudley's grandchild. 

William Cox and Thomas Dudley, however, admit that Lord 
Dudley, for the love and affection he had for complainant, did 
about the month of October in the 20th year of the reign of the 
late King James (1622) by deed give to the said Dudley and Coxe 
the said manor in trust to convey it to the complainant. How this 
matter ended does not appear from the records, but it is certain 
that Dud was unsuccessful. 

Dud Dudley married at St. Helen's church in the city of 
Worcester on the 12th of October 1626, Eleanor daughter of Francis 
Heaton of Groveley Hall, Worcestershire, by Mary his wife, daughter 
of Francis Dineley or Dingley of CJiarlton, in Cropthorne, co. 
Worcester ; which Francis Heaton was the second son of Francis 
Heaton, citizen and goldsmith of London, and a member of the 
family of Heaton of Winkell, co. Lincoln. 1 She was buried at St. 
Helen's, 3rd December, 1675, and he 25th October, 1684. 2 

I have searched in vain for Dud's will ; yet he appears to have 
made one, for among the charitable bequests to the parish of St. 
Helen's, stated by the Commisioners to be lost, is one of 40 " left 
by Dod Dudley." Nor have I been able to find the baptisms of any 
of his children although it is clear that he had issue, for in 1651, 
his wife speaks (Eoyalist composition papers) of ' her many small 
children.' As there is no trace of his having left any descendants, and 
as no issue is mentioned in the Staffordshire Visitation, I presume 
that these " small children " all died young. 3 

1 See a pedigree of Heton or Heaton in the Harl. MS. 1463, folio 21, 
purporting to be the Visitation of London, A.D. 1568, and printed as such bj the 
Uarleian Society.

8 There was a " Dud Dudley, gent.," at Tipton in the early part of the last 
century, whose parentage I have been unable to discover. By Ann his wife, he had 
the following issue : Elizabeth, bnptised 4th January, 1704-5, Ann luried, 21st

Dud's monument, or rather what remains of it for one may 
almost say " perierunt etiam ruince" is affixed to the south wall of 
St. Helen's church in Worcester. I carefully examined it some six- 
teen years ago. At the top is an escutcheon displaying the double- 
tailed lion 1 impaling six trefoils slipped, arranged two and one, two 
and one, for Heaton, and surmounted by two crests, first Dudley, 
A lion's head in a ducal coronet, and second Heaton A pelican, 
vulning. At the base of the monument, below the inscription (which 
has entirely perished) are two halberts in saltire, and the motto 
" Non spirans sperabo." There were also formerly (according to 
Nash) ten bezants, or rather cannon balls. The long inscription in 
two columns is fortunately preserved by Nash (Worcestershire, vol. 
II, appendix p. 149) and runs as follows : 

" Pulvis et umbra sumus. 2

Eobert Dudley, called in the Staffordshire Visitation " of 
Netherton Hall," Dud's eldest brother, exhibited a Bill in Chancery 
in 1638, against his brother Dud, Henry Addenbrooke, and Oliver 
Amlett, being described in the record as " Robert Dudley, alias 
Tomlinson." I have not found the Bill, but the following is an 
abstract of the joint and several answers of Addenbrooke and Amlett 
dated 8 June 1638. 

It is true, they say, that there are divers closes, &c., called 
" Parkfields," in the Bill mentioned, situate in Tibbington, alias 
Tipton, co. Stafford, between the lands leading from Tipton Green 
to the workway through lands called Tipton Park, the land late 
Mrs. Wyrley's (divided into two parts, one called Smythe's and the 
other Hall fields,) and land late of Richard Whitehouse ; but whether 
the same was heretofore in the tenure of Gilbert Jelians of Dudley 
or that he was ever lawfully seised thereof, these defendants know 
not, but say that some part thereof is in their occupation as tenants 
unto the defendant Dud Dudley, alias Tomlinson. Nor do they 
know that the said Gilbert Jelians did by indenture convey the 
said lands to Richard Alchurch of Stourbridge, co. Worcester, and 
Thomas Wilmer, Esq., or to Edward Tomliuson, since deceased, or 
to Robert Tomlinson, or to Dud Tomlinson, as by the Bill is set 
forth. But these defendants do believe that Elizabeth Tomlinson, 
mother of the said Edward, Robert, and Dud, did for the most part 
of her lifetime receive the rents of the said lands. Deny combina- 
tion with the other defendant Dud Dudley, alias Tomlinson, or 
with any other person, but say that for many years they have been 
tenants to the said Dud. 



40 DUDLEY ALIAS TOMLINSON. 

And Henry Addenbrooke for himself saith that he paid his rent 
to the said Elizabeth Tomlinson, during her life and that she died 
in or about the year 1629 ; but after her death he paid his rent to 
her son, the said defendant Dud, on the days named in a certain 
lease for twenty-one years made and sealed by the said Elizabeth 
and the said Dud with him this defendant at least sixteen years 
since. And the defendant, " Ollif er Hamlett," saith he hath a lease 
for seven years from the defendant Dud made in or about the year 
1634. 

Robert Dudley was twice married, his first wife being a lady 
named Margaret, 1 by whom (who was buried at St. Thomas's, Dudley, 
24th January, 1619-20) he had issue. 2 

1. William Dudley.

Robert's second wife was named Anne, and by her he had. the 
following further issue : 

2. Edward baptised at St. Thomas's as son of Eobert Dudley, 

Esq., llth January, 1625-6. He was sole executor of his 
mother's will 1659, and of the parish of Kingswinford, 



1 "William Orme of Rowley Regis, gent., buried there 8th March, 1610-11, in 
his will dated 27th February, 1610-11, and proved in London, 6th April, 1611 (38 
Wood) gives to his kinswoman Margaret Dudley for her life, the house called the 
Brick-house in Rowley, with lands, meadows, pastures, etc., and also a farm called 
Martin's farm, and a meadow, called Green Lunte meadow. After the said 
Margaret's death these lands were to go to William Dudley, her son, and his heirs 
male, and in default of such heirs, to the heirs male of the body of the said 
Margaret. He also gave her and the heirs of her body an equal part of " all 
my free lands, with the co-heirs." Among the witnesses to the will is Robert 
Dudley, and from a list of the debts due to the testator, it appears that Edward 
Lord Dudley owed him " one hundreth and three sore poundes," " Widdowe 
Dudley," 9, and Sir Ferdinando "Dudley, 10. Whether this was Margaret wife of 
Eobert I am unable to say, and indeed it is very doubtful, for her son William 
must, if he existed at that date, have been a very young child. William, son of 
Robert Sufton, gent., was baptised at Tipton, 19th February, 1610-11, a few days 
before the date of the will.

yeoman, at his death. He made no will, but administration 
of the goods of "Edward Dudley, alias Tomlinson "of 
Kingswinford was granted from Lichfield llth February, 
1677-8 to Eleanor his relict, and to Thomas Coxe of

September, 1677, by the said Thomas Coxe and Edward 
Wannerton, value 10 16s. Neither his burial nor that 
of Eleanor his widow is recorded at Kingswinford. She 
was living in 1681, in which year on llth May, 
administration de bonis non of Anne the widow of her

John and Elizabeth Dudley, alias Tomlinson) 28th March 
1653. She died young and was buried at Dudley as 
"Elner Dudley, alias Tomlinson," 10th January, 1659-60. 
Eobert Dudley was buried at Dudley as " Robert Tumlinson, 
alias Dudley," on 16th June, 1653. The will of " Robert Duddeley, 
alias Tomlinson, of the Parish of Dudley in the County of Worcester, 
Esquire," is dated 28th January, ] 652-3, and was proved in London 
(357 Brent) 29th July, 1653. He desires his body to be buried, 
" near unto my father," in St. Edmund's Church, Dudley, " Whereas 
my brother Edward Duddeley, alias Tomlinson, had an estate tayle 
of and in divers lands in Tipton, alias Tibbington in the county of 
Stafford, to him and the heirs of his body, and for want of such 
heirs to mee and the heirs of my body, and the said Edward having 
died without issue, and the said estate belonging to mee, I give and 
devise all the said lands in Tipton to my son William Dudley, alias 
Tomlinson, and to my daughters Elizabeth Porter, Alice Jennens, 
and Jane Duddeley, alias Tomlinson and their heirs. To each of his 
other children 20s. a piece. The interest he had in the house in 
which he then lived called " Caryes lodge," and also the interest he 
had in certain lands in Meriden, in Warwickshire," lately settled on 
me for 99 years by a decree in Chancery," he gives to his dear wife 
Anne Duddeley, alia* Tomlinson, whom he appoints his sole 
executrix. Signed " Robert Dudley," and attested by John Manning, 
Robert X Dudley, Robert X Brookes, and Edward Parkshouse. 

The will of Anne his widow bears date 22nd December, 1659, 
and was proved in London 24th October, 1662 (126 Laud). It 
runs thus : 

I Ann Dudley, otherwise Tomlinson, of Dudley, iu the county of Worcester, 
widow, being of perfect memory (praised be God) doe make this my last will 
and testament in manner and form following. First I commend my spirit 
to the merciful hands of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ : and concerning 
my worldlie estate, as it shall be recovered and received out of the [blank] 
and out of the hands of my adversaryes, first, my mind and will is, and I doe 
hereby give and bequeath to my grandchild Eleanor Dudley (my sonne John's 
daughter), ,10 to be sett out by my executors for her benefit out of the first 
moneys that can be raised out of my said estate, after my lawful debts and 
funerall charges are paid, and if she chance to dye before she hath received, 
and [blank] the said 10, and leave no child or children of her body, that 
then the said 10 shall be equally distributed among my six children. And as 
concerning the rest of my said estate, my minde and will is that from time to time 
as it shall be received, it shall be equally divided into eight partes, two partes 
whereof I give and bequeath unto my sonne Edward Dudley(whom I nominate 
and appoint executor of my will and testament), other two partes thereof 



DUDLEY ALIAS TOMLINSON. 43 

I give to my daughter, Jane Dudley, and the other four parts thereof I give 
to my other four sonnes, viz. : "Ward Dudley, Eobert Dudley, Walter Dudley, 
and Thomas Dudley, to be equally divided amongst them. And if it happen 
that any of my said children dye before he or they have received what shall 
fall due to him or them as aforesaid, and leave no child or children of his or their 
bodies to enjoy the same, that then the part or parts of such child or children so 
dying shall be equally divided amongst my surviving children. And further, 
that if my son Edward do claime or take any part of my estate than that which 
is given as aforesaid by vertue of any bond or otherwise, that then the two 
parts of my estate given (as aforesaid) unto him, shall cease as unto him, and 
I doe hereby give the same amongst the rest of my children. Also I give 
and bequeath unto my two daughters-in-lawes [i.e., step daughters], Elizabeth 
Porter and Alice Jennens, 2s. 6d. a piece, and to my loving cozens Mr. John 
Taylor and Edward Parkshouse (minister and steward of Dudley), 5s. a piece, 
whom I make overseers of this my last will and testament. In witness 
whereof I, Anne Dudley, otherwise Tomlinson, have hereunto put my hand 
and seale the day and yeare above written. Signed " Anne Dudley," and 
witnessed by John Taylor, Edward Parkshouse, and John Wilkinson. 

On 10th May, 1681, administration de lonis non was granted to 
Eleanor Dudley, alias Tcmlinson, relict and administratrix of 
Edward Dudley, alias Tomlinson, the natural and lawful son, and 
one of the executors named in the will of Ann Dudley, alias 
Tomlinson, relict and executrix of Eobert Dudley, alias Tomlinson. 

Walter Dudley, alias Tomlinson, and Jane Male, children of the 
said Eobert, are named in the administration. 

I cannot continue this pedigree with any certainty. The only 
further notice I have found of Dudley alias Tomlinson is the burial 
at Tipton on 28th January, 1692-3, of " Susanna Dudley, alias 
Tomliuson, widow," but whose widow she was I have been unable 
to discover. 



DUDLEY OF SEDGLEY, &c. 

IT has already been stated ("The Barons of Dudley," Staffordshire 
Collections IX., pt. ii., 58) that Sir Eichard Dudley, Knt., husband 
of Isabella (nde Charlton), widow of John de Sutton ii., Baron of 
Dudley, had issue two sons Eichard and John, and that the latter, 
who was living in 6 Eichard II., was the ancestor of a family of 
Dudley seated at Sedgley. 

I have quite failed to discover the ancestry, or even the 
parentage, of this. Sir Eichard. It is possible that he styled himself 
" de Dudley," in consequence of his tenure, jure uxoris, of the 



44 DUDLEY OF SEDGLEY. 

castle and lands of Dudley, in which case it was almost impossible 
to ascertain from what family he derived his paternal descent ; or 
he may have been a member of that family of Dudley which we 
find holding lands in Lichfield, temp. Edward I. and Edward III. 1 

The history of the Sedgley Dudleys from the end of the 
14th to the beginning of the 16th centuries, may be gathered 
from the following abstracts of certain deeds preserved at 
Wrottesley (for which I am indebted to Gen. the Hon. George 
Wrottesley), and from some printed by Shaw in his History of 
Staffordshire, the whole of which I here arrange chronologically : 2 



No. 1. 

6 E. II., Thomas Cook of Trysull grants to John, son of 
1382-3. Eichard de Duddeley, Knt., and his heirs a messuage 

called Springwalle and other lands in Orton, which he held by the 
feoffment of Eichard Spryngwall. Witnessed by William Buffrey 
of Penn, and others. 

1 See the Coram Rege Eoll of Easter, 12 E I, 1283, in Staffordshire Collec- 
tions VI, part i, p. 153, where we read that John, son of John de Duddele, sued 
Agnes de Duddele and Richard, her son, for two messuages and seven acres hi 
Lichfield, of which William de Duddele, the grandfather of John, whose heir he 
is, was seised as of fee. Agnes stated that she only claimed the wardship of Eichard 
who was under age, and the suit was accordingly ordered to remain until the full 
age of Eichard. 

In 27 Edward I, Hilary, A.D., 1299 (7J. yii, pt. i, p. 50), one Eichard de 
Duddelegh sued Walter le Franceys, and his wife, Isolda, and her sisters Joan and 
Christiana, for two acres in Lichfield as his estate and inheritance, but as the de- 
fendants did not appear, we learn no further particulars. Next in the Staffordshire 
Subsidy Eoll of 1 Edward III, 1327, Eobert de Duddelye appears under Lichfield 
as paying 2s. 

In 1283 is a grant of 3s. for the Cathedral of Lichfield from the messuage of 
Agnes de Duddeley (probably the above Agnes) and a quit-claim from her of a mes- 
suage in Lichfield in favour of the Dean and Chapter for the fabric. (See Staffordshire 
Collections VI, pt. ii, p. 144.) An Agnes, wife of Thomas de Duddele, appears on 
the Patent Eoll of 1 Edward I, 1272-3, where is enrolled the appointment of two 
judges to take an assize of mort dancester, arraigned by one John G-ambun against 
the said Thomas and Agnes touching lands in " Donnebrugg " (Doveridge ?), co. 
Derby. There is also the appointment of the same judges to take an assize arraigned 
by Eadulph del Boys against Eobert de Dudele, Vicar of the Church of " Donne- 
brugg," touching a foss destroyed there. The same Eobert was also in suit with 
Eadulph de Bosco, or del Boys, touching common of pasture in "Dunebrugg."

Eecords, pp. 542 and 543).

wyvre or. They are given in Sir John Feme's " Glorye of 
Generositie." as an example of the charge called " a wyvre." In 
a roll of arms of the reign of Henry III, Matthew de "Hayersegge," 
bears them without the " wyvre/' viz., " Pale d'argent et de goules, 
un chief d'argent." This Matthew had two sisters and co-heirs, 
Cecilia and Matilda, the former m. to . . Longford and the 
latter to . . Goushill, whose representatives in 16 E. I., 1288, were 
John de Longford arid Walter Goushill. The Goushills appear to 
have assumed this coat, for I find it attributed in Glover's 
" Ordinary," to " Sir Walter Gousell," and in other collections to 
" Ealph Gousile," " Le Sire de Goushill," &c., &c. 

Longford also bore a variation of the same coat, viz., Paly of 
six or and gules, over all a bend argent. (See " Herald and 
Genealogist," II. 274, Staff. Coll. VI., 172, VII., 74, &c., and 
" Eeliquary," (N.S. 1, 165.) 

The fact of John Dudley sealing with these arms, seems to 
indicate some connection between his family and that of Goushill or 
Longford

of Wombourne and Orton. Joan, daughter and heir of John Buffrey, of Penn, 
Wombourne, and Orton, married John Burnett, and had a son, Thomas, who 
claimed, through his mother, these manors. Thomas Burnett had a son, Robert, 
and in 10 Henry VIII, 1518-19, Eobert Burnett petitions the King and Council 



DUDLEY OF SKDGLEY. 49 

No 23. 

Same date. John Dudley, of Sedgley, demises to Robert Smith, of 
Wombourne the moiety of those lands (called Caldwalls) which John 
Kendale, vicar of Wombourne and John Cooke of Overton late 
held by demise of John Dudley, Esq., his father. See also Shaw 
ii, 215.

No. 27. 

33 H. VIII., License under the great seal to Sir John Dudley, Knt., 1 
to alienate the rectorial tithes of Wombourne, Orton, 
and Swindon to Hugh Lee. 2 

These deeds very clearly show that John, son of Sir Eichard 
Dudley, married Elizabeth Buffrey, daughter, it would seem, of 
Thomas Buffrey and Joan his wife, and that he had issue by the 
said Elizabeth three sous and a daughter, viz., Eichard, John, 

that Edward Sutton, Lord Dudley, had taken from him by force his corn and 
chattels, had ousted his tenants, &c., and so threatened him that his life was in 
danger through the malice of the said lord. Lord Dudley had apparently taken up 
the quarrel on behalf of the Dudleys. These manors eventually vested in Thomas 
Burnett, who, by fine of 6 James 1, 1608, conveyed them to Hugh Wrottesley, Esq., 
and his heirs for ever. (Ex inf. Hon. Q-. Wrottesley). 

1 This was John, afterwards Duke of Northumberland, whose father, Edmund 
Dudley, was also lord of Perton. 

* Hugh Lee died 28 Elizabeth, 158G, when Hugh Wrottesley (son of Walter,) 
was found by inquisition to be his cousin and next heir, viz., son and heir of Mary, 
daughter and heir of the said Hugh Lee. (See Shaw ii, 170). Hugh Wrottesley 
was then under age.

50 DUDLEY OF SEDGLEY. 

William, and Elizabeth. Of Eichard and William we find no 
further trace in Staffordshire, but John the second son, was of 
Sedgley, and bore for arms a chevron between three lion's heads 
erased, being the same coat that was borne at nearly the same 
date by Eichard Dudley, Esq., of Clapton in Northamptonshire. 
John Dudley married a lady named Joan, and was dead in 1456, 
leaving a son John Dudley of Sedgley, Esq., who in 1478 was 
father of a fourth John living certainly in 1495 and probably in 
1505. 1 

It may be that Eichard, the eldest son of John and Elizabeth 
Dudley of Sedgley died without issue, but I feel pretty sure that 
either he or his uncle of the same name (eldest son of Eichard and 
Isabella), was ancestor of the Dudleys of Ciopton, or Clapton, in 
Northamptonshire. 

The exact affiliation of the Clapton Dudleys is not known, but 
nearly every writer who has dealt with the family asserts their 
descent from the baronial house. 

Wotton ("English Baronets," ed. 1727), informs us that the 
first of the name who settled at Clapton was " Thomas de Dudley, 2 
second son of Sir John de Sutton, who in right of his wife was 
made Baron of Dudley about the year 1340." " This Thomas de 
Dudley (he continues) was one of the lords of Clapton manor, and 
his grandson married Agnes Hotot in 1395. She afterwards proved 
heiress to the ancient family of the Hotots ; and he thereby became 
sole Lord of the manor of Clapton." He then passes to "his 
(Thomas's) lineal descendant," Sir William Dudley, who was created 
a baronet in 1660. This account may, I think, be dismissed as 
being merely a family tradition and quite unsupported by any 
documentary evidence. 

Bridges in his History of Northamptonshire 3 (Vol ii, pp. 367, 
370, etc.), enters more fully into the history of the Dudleys of 
Clapton. He states that the lordship of Ciopton on the Wold was 
formerly the property of the family of Hotot or Hotoft, and that 



1 One of these Johns seems to have married an Aston of Tixall, for the second 
daughter (name not given), of Sir John de Aston, who was Sheriff of Staffordshire 
in 16 E. IV, 1476, and died in 1483, is stated in the pedigree to have been married 

to " Dudley, of Sedgley." This John de Aston had in all three sons and 

nine daughters. His eldest son John died in 1523. 

2 He probably means Thomas, 2nd son of John de Sutton ii (husband of Isabella, 
nee Charlton) summoned to Parliament, 1342. 

3 By the Eev. Peter Whalley, 2 vols, fo. 1791. 



DUDLEY OF SEDGLEY. 51 

it passed to Richard Dudley of Barnwell, 1 in the same county of 
Northampton, by his marriage with Joan, the daughter and heiress 
of Robert de Hotot. 

This Richard Dudley, he adds, was the son of John Dudley of 
Dudley in Staffordshire (sic), living in 1360, and "appears to have 
been possessed of Clopton manor in 1395. He had issue a son 
and heir, also named Richard, who was seised of this lordship in 
13 H. VI. , 1434." This last-named Richard " was succeeded by 
William Dudley, his son (Esch. 21 H. VII., 1505-6, No. 127) 
who at his decease left it to his grandson William (son and heir of 
Lawrence Dudley, who died in his father's life- time), a minor 11 
years old. 

" From this William in course of descent, this manor, called 
Hotofte manor, in Clopton, came to Thomas Dudley, Esq., who left 
it at his death in 1 Elizabeth to Edward Dudley his son and heir. 
By the inquisition then taken (1 Eliz., No. 148), it was certified to 
be held of the Crown by an unknown service. In 1660 it was in 
the hands of William Dudley, Esq., who by letters patent bearing 
date 1st August the same year was created a baronet." 

The arms 2 of the Clapton Dudleys were Azure, a chevron or, 

1 It appears from the Inq.p. mortem of Anne, widow of Sir Richard Stury, 
knight, taken in 1414, that the manor of Barnwell, Northamptonshire, had been 
settled upon her for life. Sir Richard Stury died in 1395, and one Richard Dudley 
was executor of his will. In 1386 he had enfeoffed Richard " Dudele " and another 
in his manor of Lee, Kent, as trustees. (See " Ilistory of the Hundred of Black- 
heath, Kent," edited by Henry H. Drake, 1886, p. 215). 

2 The crest borne by the Dudleys of Clapton, as recorded, with the pedigree 
among the Archives of the College of Arms (from a sketch certified by Mr. Beltz, 
Lancaster Herald, in 1826), was On a wreath of the colours, a woman's bust in profile 
wearing a helmet of leaves, and wreathed round the temples with alternate leaves 
and roses, all proper. But Wotton (Baronetage, ed. 1741) describes it as On a ducal 
coronet or, a woman's bust (affrontee), her hair dishevelled, bosom bare, a helmet 
on her head, with the stay or throat-latch down proper." This is engraved (with 
the arms) in a scarce work published in 1803, called " Historical and Allusive 
Arms, collected by an Antiquary," and is copied into Lower's " Curiosities of 
Heraldry," but I am not aware of any good authority for this variation. The 
tradition respecting the origin of this singular crest (which seems to have been that 
of Hotot, or adopted by the Dudleys in memory of their descent from that family) 
is variously narrated. "Wotton's version is and he quotes from a MS. in the 
possession in the family said to have been written by a monk about the year 1390 
that the father of the Hotot heiress (afterwards married to Bichurd Dudley) having 
a dispute with one Ringsdale about the title to a piece of land, they agreed to meet 
and decide it by combat. 

Hotot, on the day appointed, was laid up with the gout ; but his daughter, 
rather than he should lose his land, or suffer in his honour, armed herself cap-d-pie 
and mounting her father's steed, went and met Ringsdale, whom, after a stubborn

between three lion's heads erased argent, quartering (for Hotot), 
Azure, a cross pattee throughout argent, between four cinquefoils 
or; which arms, Bridges tells us, are represented in the hall 
windows of the Manor House at Clapton, and also over the porch 
in two separate escutcheons. 

As, according to this account, the Richard Dudley who married 
the heir of Hotot was the son of a John Dudley, he would at first 
sight appear to be identical with Richard the son of John and 
Elizabeth Dudley of Sedgley ; but if so Bridges's dates must needs 
be wrong. For if Sir Richard Dudley, Knt., father of John of 
Sedgley (party to the deed of 6 R. II., 1382-3), were the Sir 
Richard who married, circa 1360, Isabel, nee Charlton, the said 
John, if his son by her, must have been under 35 years of age 
when his (assumed) son Richard was a married man and lord of 
Clapton. 

But the pedigree recorded by Edward Dudley of Clapton at 
the Visitation of Northamptonshire in 1618 differs in some respects 
from Bridges's account, and gives different dates. 

According to that pedigree Richard Dudley, of Barnwell, who 
married " Johanna, et in aliis chartis Jana, fiT et hseres Rob'ti 
Hotofft de Clopton in com' North'ton," was the son of another 
Richard whose locus is not stated. Richard the younger is stated 
to have made his will in 146 5, x and Joan his wife to have been 
living 21 E. IV. (1481). They had issue, (1) William living 1481 
and 1505, who married Christiana daughter of Dayrell of Lillingston 
Dayrell, co. Bucks, and had issue; (2) "Walter, " cui pater legavit 
Barnwell"; (3) John ; and (4) Thomas. William had issue Lawrence 

fight she dismounted ; and when he was on the ground she loosened her throat- 
latch, lifted up her helmet, let down her hair about her shoulders, and disclosing 
her hosom, discovered to him that he had been conquered by a woman. In memory 
of which heroic action the Crest has been used by her descendants together with 
the motto, " G-alea spes salutis." 

Bridges does not relate this story, nor does he describe the Dudley crest, but 
he gives a somewhat similar legend concerning one of the G-rauntkort family, who 
anciently possessed the manor of Clapton. " Of Dionysia," [sister of Alice, who 
married Robert de Hotot, and daughter of Walter de Grauntkort ; which Dionysia 
was afterwards the wife of Eobert de Hofford], he says, "it is recorded that when 
a maiden, clad in a tunic, with a hat upon her head, and armed only with a hollow 
shield, about the 17th of King Stephen, she attacked a certain knight, with one 
blow of her spear bringing him to the ground, and carried off his horse." Another 
version is that the lady, whoever she was, was armed with a helmet of leaves and 
roses. 

1 This will has been unsuccessfully sought for at Peterborough, Northampton 
and London.

and Robert. The former married Frances, daughter of William 
Lexham, of Lexham Burnham, co. Norfolk, in the year 1495 (11 
H. VII.) as it would seem, for though in the original visitation 
this date is simply attached to his name and that of his wife, it is 
asserted in the Harl. MS. 1187 (purporting to be a copy of the same 
visitation) that their "conventio maritag'" was dated in that year. 

Laurence and Frances were the parents of an (apparently) only 
child, William Dudley of Clopton, who married Elizabeth, daughter 
of Augustine Porter, of Belton, co. Lincoln, and was ancestor of the 
subsequent Dudleys, of Clapton and of Harrold, Beds. 

Now, if, as Bridges tells us, Richard Dudley was lord of Clapton 
and a married man in 1395, it is obviously impossible that he 
could have made a will in 1465, and leave a widow who was living 
so late as 1481. 

On the whole, however, I am inclined to think that Bridges's 
is the more correct version, the confusion being between the two 
Richards. This will be best understood by giving the two versions 
in parallel columns.

54 DUDLEY OF SEDGLEY. 

It will be observed that there is one material difference between 
Bridges and the Visitation, viz., that according to the former it was 
the first Eichard who married Joan Hotot, while according to the 
latter it was the second Richard ; and I feel pretty sure that in this 
Bridges is correct, for in the original Visitation Book there is a 
trick of an impression " ex antiquo sigillo argenteo Ricardi 
Dudley Armigeri," exhibiting the arms of Dudley quartering those 
of Hotot. 

Unless, therefore, Richard Dudley quartered the arms of his 
wife, this must have been the personal seal of another Richard 
Dudley, descended from the Hotot heiress ; and I unhesitatingly 
identify the Richard of the seal with the Richard Dudley who, 
according to Bridges, was son and heir of Richard and Joan, and 
was lord of Clapton in 1434. 

This, too, was undoubtedly the Richard who made his will in 
1465, and whose widow Joan was living in 1481, the explanation 
being that the wife of Richard junior was also named Joan, 1 and 
hence the confusion in the pedigree. 

The ancient silver seal which (or an impression from which) was 
produced by Edward Dudley of Clopton to the Heralds in 1618 is 
still in existence. It was found among the effects of Thomas 
Dudley, Esq. (b. 1749 d. 1825), the then representative of the 
Dudleys of Tipton, and is now the property of his grand-daughter, 
Miss Dudley, of Broom e, near Stourbridge. Its possession has not 
been traced beyond Mr. Thomas Dudley, and how he acquired it, 
whether by descent from his ancestors or otherwise, is not known.

It is of solid silver, very massive, weighing nearly 2 ounces,

and I am enabled to here annex a woodcut carefully engraved 
from a wax impression. 

That it is the identical seal of which a trick is given in the 
aforesaid Visitation book is absolutely certain, since it agrees with 
it in every particular. It seems pretty clear therefore that it 
belonged in 1618 to Edward Dudley of Clapton, but by what 
means it passed to the Tipton branch is a mystery. 

It would be interesting to ascertain Bridges's authority (he 
cites none) for the statement that the first Eichard Dudley of the 
Clapton line was the son of a John Dudley of Dudley living in 
1360, for that was the very year in which Sir Eichard Dudley 
writes himself " Seigneur de Dudley," (see IX., part 2, 56), and it 
appears to me probable that for John we should read Richard in 
other words that the husband of the heiress of Hotot was the son 
of Sir Eichard and Isabella, for we know from her Inq. p. m. that 
she had a son so named by her second husband. Adlard asserts so 
much, but as he gives no reason for arriving at that conclusion, it 
is pretty evident that it is merely a guess on his part. 1 

As the Clapton family belonged to Northamptonshire, I do 
not propose to pursue its further history here. The ascertained 
fact, however, that Eichard Dudley of Clapton, who died about 
1465, bore the same arms as those set up at Bilston for John 
Dudley of Sedgley, who lived at the same date, is to my mind 
conclusive evidence as to both being of the same family. 



DUDLEY OF FUNDESLEY. 

At a place in Sedgley (or perhaps Hirnley) called Fundesley, 
Funsley, or Funleys, formerly resided a family of Dudley, whose 
origin I have not been able to discover, and to which I think may 
have belonged Henry Dudley of Sedgley, gent., to whom, and to his 
wife Margaret and son Edward, certain lands in Himley were 
demised in 27 Eliz. 1585, by Edward Lord Dudley (see IX, pt. 2, 

1 " The Sutton-Dudleys of England." In his introductory remarks, p. iii, Mr. 
Adlard writes, " On page 5 of the present work I have shown the only connection 
that existed between these families [Sutton of Dudley, and Dudley of Clapton] 
which was simply the marriage of Richard Dudley, in or about 1359, with the widow 
of John Sutton, lord of Dudley, leaving issue by that marriage, a son Richard." 

On p. 5 he does not " shew " this connection, but simply asserts his presumption 
that the Clopton Dudleys were descended from Sir Richard. 



56 DUDLEY OF FUNDESLEY. 

p. 108, foot-note). The exact whereabouts of this place I cannot 
discover, for its very name is forgotten ; but I find it stated in an 
old MS. 1 that the said Henry and Margaret held in 1585 (inter alia) 
under Lord Dudley " one half Fundsleyes," containing about eight 
acres, with a cottage built thereon, at an annual rent of 4s., and 
that about the same date the Rector of Hiniley held a pasture 
called " Fudsley leasow " at 8s. rent, and Thomas Eussell a pasture 
called " Fundsley " at 6s. 8d. rent. 

On 6th Sept., 2.9 Eliz., 1587, the same Henry Dudley demised 
certain lands called " Penny Lands " in Himley to Eleanor Overton, 
widow, for 70 years, if the said Henry, Margaret his wife, and 
Edward their son should so long live, yielding to the lady Mary 
Dudley, 2 or to the heirs or assigns of the Lord Dudley, one red rose 
and 10s. rent per annum. And it is noted that the original lease 
(from Lord Dudley) bears date 4th Feb., 27 Eliz., 1585. 

Edward was no doubt a child at the date of the lease, and it is 
probably to him that the following entry in the parish registers of 
Sedgley refers : 

" 1639, June 4, Edward Dudley of Founlees was buried, with 
my consent, at Himley with his ancestors." 

This seems to indicate that he belonged to the baronial family, 
but unfortunately the Himley parish registers commence too late 
to be available. 

As stated in " The Barons of Dudley " (IX, pt. 2, p. 108), a Henry 
Dudley, gent., had three children baptised at Sedgley, viz., Henry 
on 29th Aug., 1590, a daughter on 19th Dec., 1591, and Ambrose 
on 10th March, 1592-3, but if these were brothers and sisters of 
Edward of Eunleys they were much his juniors. 

Edward Dudley, gent., had the following children baptised at 
Sedgley, viz., Margaret on 2nd July, 1615, Harry on 25th Nov., 
1622, and Humble (called in the register son of Edward of " Fun- 
leys ") on 14th Jan., 1635 ; and Edward Dudley, gent., and Elizabeth 
his wife had a daughter Mary, baptised 6th June, 1639, two days 
after the burial of Edward of Funleys. 

On 6th Oct., 1660, Humble, the son of "widow Dudley of 
' Fudles,' mason," was buried ; on Jan. 18, 1664-5 " M ris Dudley of 
the "Fundlesse" was buried; and on 8th Aug., 1674, is recorded 
the burial of Willian Dudley of " Fundless."

z This was Mary, nee Howard, widow of Edward Lord Dudley, and wife of 
Richard Mompesson, Esq. (see "Barons of Dudley," p. 106). 



DUDLEY OF FUNDESLEY. 57 

An undoubted (I think) member of this Funleys family was 
William Dudley of Elstree in Herts, Esq., whose will, dated 14th 
July, 1670, was proved in London 2nd Feb., 1672, and is registered 
at Somerset House, 18 Pye. 

The testator gives to his son Eleazar Dudley " all the estate of 
inheritance in houses or land which I shall die possessed of, or 
have right unto, in the county of Stafford at the time of my decease." 

In the event of Eleazar dying without issue he devises the same 
to his (testator's) daughter Deborah Coghill 1 and her jounger 
children. 

All other his lands and tenements he gives to his dear wife 
Lucy Dudley, in consideration (inter alia) of the large portion he 
had with her in money, goods, and leases, viz. (inter alia), his 
dwelling house at Elstrey alias Idelstrey in Herts ; and certain lands 
at Edgworth, Middlesex, which he had purchased. He gives 20s. 
for a ring to Richard Sydenham, Esq., and legacies to the children 
of John Dudley of Funsley, not naming any relationship, nor the 
county in which " Funsley " is situate. Gives legacies also to Mar- 
garet, sister of the said John Dudley ; to the two daughters of Jane, 
another sister of the said John Dudley; to the children of Katherine 
Smith, kinswoman of the said John Dudley ; to the daughters of 
William Walker, 2 cousin of the said John Dudley ; to Ambrose 3 
Dudley, brother of the said John; to William Dudley "one 
other of his brothers ;" and to William Wilkes " his two children." 
Appoints his wife Lucy sole executrix. 

The son Eleazar appears to have died s.p., whereupon his sister 
Deborah became his sole heiress. She was the wife of John 
Coghill, Esq., of Aldenharn, Herts, and she was buried, according to 
her monument in Aldenham Church, 4 3rd September, 1714, he 
surviving her just one month, dying on 3rd Oct. in the same year. 
On this monument are the arms of Coghill impaling Or, two lions 
passant azure, the old feudal coat of Dudley. 

1 It is curious that a " Mr. Coghill " appears as paying Qd., chief rent in Himley, 
or Kingswinford, in a rent roll of Edward, Lord Dudley, and Ward, 1701, privately 
printed in 1882 by the late Mr. C. H. Bayley, of West Bromwich. 

2 Roger Walker and Mary Dudley were married at Sedgley, 16th October, 1617. 

3 Ambrose Dudley, of Cotwall End, gent., who was buried at Sedgley, 3rd 
January, 1684-5, was perhaps the person here referred to. It is of course possible 
that this was Ambrose, son of Henry, but if so, he would be in his 93rd year, and 
I think some note as to his advanced age would appear in the registers.

58 DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

In the same church is a monument to Lucy, relict of William 
Dudley, Esq. She died, it is stated, 1st March, 1684-5, in her 
80th year, but her parentage is not stated. 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

I now pass to the Dudleys of Tipton, undoubtedly of the same 
stock as those of Sedgley, though I am unable to indicate the precise 
line of descent. 

" In Sedgley (writes Erdeswick 1 ) is a large goodly park of my 
Lord Dudley's; and in the same lordship is the ancient seat of a 
gentleman that beareth the same surname of Dudley, who (as I 
take it) descends paternally from the Someries, lords of Dudley, for 
he beareth blue, a chevron between three lions' heads erased gold." 

According to Shaw (Hist. Staff, ii, 136) Erdeswick here refers 
to a mansion called " The Green House " in Tipton, the remains of 
which, " shaded by a small grove of trees," then existed, and for- 
merly belonged, he says, " to the ancestors of the present Thomas 
Dudley of Shutt End, Esq., and his brother the Eev. John Dudley, 
rector of Himley." 

He adds that as this old mansion was on the borders of Tipton 
parish adjoining to Sedgley, Erdeswick might easily suppose it to 
be "in the same lordship." " It was taken down," he continues, "and 
the middle part of the present house built of the materials." 

He then refers to " an old visitation-book of this county," and 
proceeds to give a short account of the family from that and other 
sources. 

This "old visitation-book" is no doubt the Harl. MS. 6128 
where, on folio 25 b , is a pedigree of Folliold and Wells alias Clarke, 
shewing that Thomas Dudley of Tybyngton married a co-heiress of 
that family, and by her had issue two children. 

But he appears to have overlooked another pedigree, written in 
a different hand and probably at a later date, 2 in the same manu- 
script, of which the following is a verb, et lit. copy : 

1 Erdeswick's " Survey " was written between the years 1593 and 1603. 

2 It occurs upon a blank page following the index and immediately preceding 
folio 152, which contains the list of Staffordshire gentlemen summoned by Glover 
to appear before him and record their descents in 1583. It is ill-written, and the 
ink is brown and faded.

Some sixty years ago the late accomplished genealogist, G. M. 
Beltz, Esq., Lancaster Herald, was officially employed by the Rev. 
Edward Dudley, the then head of this family, to investigate his 
pedigree. Mr. Beltz succeeded in constructing from Mr. Dudley's 
family papers a very fair genealogy, but he could not trace the 
descent beyond John Dudley of Tipton living in 1435. He, how- 
ever, inclined to the opinion that this John was identical with 
John, third son of Eichard Dudley of Clopton (vide ante p. 52). 
In a letter dated 9th Nov. 1827, Mr. Beltz writes " Although it is 
not stated in the Clopton pedigree recorded in 1618, that the said 
John Dudley had issue, the fact that he did not die issueless may 
be inferred, partly from the absence of any note to that effect, and 
partly from the custom of the Heralds at that period to omit the 
names of the younger sons of a family when there had not been 
any issue from them." 

" The possession of the silver seal, (he adds,) is a curious feature 
in the case ; though you have not been able to ascertain how it came 
into your family. Under all these circumstances, and with such 
strong probability of connexion, I cannot blame you if you continue 
to use the arms described on the seal ; although in the absence of 
evidence, I could not, as an Officer of Arms, give you my official 
sanction for that purpose." 

I must confess I have very grave doubts as to the identity of 
John of Tipton with John son of Eichard of Clopton. It is possible, 
but I think a careful comparison of dates will show its im- 
probability. 

In the following narrative pedigree I have of course used all 
the information supplied by Mr. Beltz, as well as that obtained by 
my own researches. 



60 DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

John Dudley of Tibinton, otherwise Tipton, married before 
14 H. VI., 1435, Margery, daughter of .... Turnpenny and 
Katherine his wife, by whom he was father of a son, Thomas 
Dudley, of Tipton, on whom, and Joan his wife, and the heirs of 
their bodies, the lands called Barnfield within Tibington were 
settled in 9 Edward IV., 1469. This Joan was the elder of the 
two daughters and co-heirs of John "Welles alias Clarke 1 of Tipton, 
and by her Thomas Dudley had issue a daughter Margaret married 
to John Phillips 2 of Birmingham, and a son, Cornelius, or Cornes, 
Dudley of Tipton, who died before 29 Henry VIII., 1537-8. With 
Edmund Eingley, he was petty collector of the subsidy for Tipton 
in 15 Henry VIIL, 1523, and married (Harl. MS. 6128) AnneHoo, 
sister probably of John Hoo of Bradley, living 16 H. VIII. (Vis. 
Staff. 1614), and by her he is stated in the pedigree in Harl. MS. 
6128 to have had two sons, Thomas and Eichard, the former of 
whom married Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Swinnerton, and had 
issue Edward. 

But according to the pedigree compiled by Mr. Beltz " Thomas 
Dudley of Tipton, gent., son and heir of Cornelius Dudley, deceased," 
(so described in a deed of 29 Henry VIIL,) had a grant of the 
lands of Over Barnfield in Tipton from Eeginald and Ealph Colle 
by deed dated 28th Jan. 19 Henry VIIL, 1528 ; and his wife, who 
was living in 29 Henry VIIL, was named Agnes. He was alive 
in 38 Henry VIIL, 1546-7, and by the said Agnes was father of 
a son " William Dudley of Tipton, Yeoman," living 22 Eliz., 
1579-80. 

Mr. Beltz, who was evidently unacquainted with the pedigree 

1 John Wellys, of Clinhurst, a 22 R. II (1398-9), afterwards, viz., subsequently 
to 3 Henry IV (1401-2), and prior to 8 Henry IV (1406-7), described as "John, 
Clerk of Tibinton," married Ellen, daughter and heir of William Hawkys, of Tipton, 
and was father of John Welles, alias Clarke, living 14 Henry VI (1435-6), the 
father of Joan Dudley. (Beltz from deeds penes Rev. E. Dudley) Joice, the 
other daughter and co-heir of John Welles, alias Clarke, was married to Humphrey 
Gravenor or Grosvenor of Farmcote, Salop, ancestor of the Grosvenors of Bushbury. 
(See Vis. Staff. 1583 and 1614). 

According to a pedigree in Harl. MS. 6128, fo. 35 b , the mother of these two 
co-heiresses was Alice, sister and heir of Clement Roberts, and daughter of Roger 
Roberts, of Tettenhall, by Joan, his wife, daughter and heir of Henry Folliolde ; 
which Henry was son of John Folliolde, and grandson of Richard, living 1 Edward 
II (1307) ; which Richard was brother of John de Folliolde, " dns. de Astley in 
com', Salop," and son of Roger de Folliolde, with whom the pedigree commences. 

2 John Phyllyppes, of Birmingham, and Margaret, his wife, are mentioned in a 
record of 1506. It was an old and influential family there. See the " Survey of 
Birmingham in 1553," p. 50, note. 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 61 

in Harl. MS. 6128, was quite unable from the evidence before him 
to affiliate Edward who next occurs. 

With regard to the Swinnerton match, Canon Bridgeman, in his 
account of that family in Staff. Coll. VIT. pt. 2, p. 87, supposes 
Elizabeth Dudley to have been a daughter of Edward Swynnerton, 
of Eccleshall, by his first wife Frances, daughter of Sampson Erdes- 
wick, and sister of Hugh Swynnerton, who is said in the MS. 
pedigrees of Swynnerton to have married " Joan, daughter of the 
Lord Dudley." And he refers in a footnote to a suit calendared in 
the " Proceedings in Chancery, temp. Elizabeth," Dd. 7, No. 27, in 
which Thomas Dudley, Randolph Machin, and Hugh Swynnerton 
were defendants, as throwing some light on this connection. 

I have examined these proceedings at the Public Eecord Office. 
They throw no light on the alleged marriage of Thomas Dudley 
with Elizabeth, daughter of Edward Swynnerton, but they show 
that Hugh Swynnerton, son of Edward, married Thomas Dudley's 
sister, and not, as stated, the daughter of Lord Dudley. The Bill is 
dated October, 1586, and John Dodde, of Eccleshall, complains that 
whereas one Thomas Dudley being lawfully seised in his demesne as 
of fee of and in two pastures containing about 18 acres, and a 
meadow of 8 acres in Eccleshall, did by his feoffment about the 
12th or 13th of Her Majesty's reign (1569-1571) demise the same 
to Randolph Dodde and to Jane his wife, complainant's father and 
mother, and to complainant himself for 21 years or more. Com- 
plainant's father died, and Jane, the widow, took for her second 
husband one Randolph Machin, and about two years last past died. 
Immediately after her death the original lease came into the hands 
of the said Randolph Machin and one Thomas Dudley, son and heir 
of Thomas, the lessor, and one Hugh Swynnerton, which Hugh had 
married a sister of the said Thomas Dudley. And " confederance " 
was had between the said Machin, Dudley, and Swynnerton, that 
the said Machin should marry a sister of the said Thomas Dudley, 
when it was agreed that Machin should have a new lease of the 
said premises in consideration of such marriage. The marriage 
took place, and the defendants are keeping complainant out of the 
said lands and refuse to give up the said lease. 

Hugh Swynnerton, in his answer, sworn 20th Oct. 1586, admits 
the lawful seisin of Thomas Dudley, sen., and the demise to Dodde, 
and says that the said Dodde died in possession, and that on his 
death the widow Jane entered into possession, but he denies com- 
plainant's right as survivor. 



62 DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

A further light is thrown upon the matter by the will of Thomas 
Swancote of Eccleshall, yeoman, dated " the xxiijth day of Aprill 
in the yere of our Lorde God a thousand, fyve hundred, fyvety, and 
seaven." After the usual religious preamble, the testator proceeds 
as follows : " Item I geve and bequeth all my landes at Tonge to 
Thomas Dudley the younger, my wiffes joynter, except after the 
deathe of my doughter his mother. Item I geve and bequeth to 
Agnes Dudley, my daughter, my best mare .... Item I geve 
and bequeth to Jane Dod xxs .... Item I geve and bequeth 
to Robert Dudley the cupborde in the house wholy as it standeth, 
and all the fyttyngs in the house . . . . Item I geve and 
bequeth to Thomas Dudley, the younger, the great pott and the 
best pan or basen, and a laver after the death of his mother Agnes 
Dudley, the which ben the heyre lomes of Tonge .... Item 
I geve and bequeth to each one of Thomas Dudley's children xls, 
except Thomas Dudley his son and heyre the which I geve and 
bequeth a gowne clothe and all the best of my wearing apparell 
. . . . Item I geve and bequeth all the rest of my goodes, my 
debtes paid, and my bequests performed, to my wiff, &c," but if she 
marry again she is only to have one half and her joynture, and the 
other half to Agnes Dudley and her children. He appoints as exe- 
cutors Sir Geoffrey Gostling (priest), Thomas Dudley, the elder, and 
Agnes Dudley his wife, and 'orders and makes' Francis Broughton 
of Broughton, gent., and Thomas Dudley the younger, his overseers. 
From a schedule of debts attached to the will, it appears that 
testator's son-in-law Thomas Dudley owed him 8, and among the 
debts which testator himself owed, appears 20s. owing to " Randull 
Dod." The will was proved 13th Nov., 1557, by Joan the relict. 

Now these documents clearly show that a Thomas Dudley who 
was living in 1557 and dead in Oct., 1586, married Agnes, dau. of 
Thomas Swancote of Eccleshall and Joan his wife, and by her had 
issue Thomas son and heir; Joan married to Hugh Swynnerton 
(she was buried at Eccleshall 3rd March, 1602. See Staff. Coll., 
VIII, pt. 2, 871) ; a daughter married, after 1584, to Randolph 
Machin, whose first wife Jane was widow of Randolph Dod ; query 
Robert Dudley; and, I suppose, the William Dudley, yeoman, 
who was of Tipton in 22 Eliz., 1580. My idea is that a generation 
has been omitted from the pedigree given in Harl. MS., 6128, and 
that the Thomas Dudley who married Elizabeth Swynnerton was 
the son of Thomas and Agnes, and the father of Edward. 

I find from the parish registers of Tipton that Elizabeth Dudley, 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 63 

widow, was buried there 22nd Jan., 1612-13, and though I do not 
tind the baptism of Edward or the burial of Thomas his father, I 
find the baptisms of four sons of a Thomas Dudley agreeing with 
the ascertained names of Edward's brothers. The issue of Thomas 
and Elizabeth therefore, were, I take it : 

1. Edward Dudley. 

2. William, baptised at Tipton as son of Thomas Dudley, 16th 

Jan., 1574-5, mentioned in his brother Edward's will, 
1652. 

3. Thomas, baptised at Tipton, 27th July, 1578, living and 

apparently unmarried in 1652. 

4. Hugh, baptised at Tipton, loth July, 1579, probably died 

young. 

5. Henry, baptised at Tipton, 3rd Oct., 1585, living at Greet 

Bridge in 1652. 

And (it would seem) a daughter, who probably comes in between 
Hugh and Henry, married to Edward Perry, of Bilston (described 
in Edward Dudley's will as his " brother-in-law,") and by him 
mother of Elizabeth Perry married at Tipton, llth July, 1637, to 
William Dudley. 

Edward Dudley, the eldest son, was of the Green-house, in the 
parish of Tipton, gent. On 16th November, 1620, he was summoned 
to appear at Lambeth to answer before the Commissioners on causes 
ecclesiastical. According to Shaw and the pedigree compiled by 
Mr. Beltz, he married " Isabella, dau. of .... Shelton, Esq., 
of Wednesbury Hall." But the only authority for this is a mem. 
of Thomas Dudley. He really married, at Wednesbury, 23rd 
November, 1591, Elizabeth, daughter of Richard Sheldon, of 
Wednesbury, yeoman, in whose will, dated 1st December, 1610, 
and proved at Lichfield, 25th November, 1613, she is referred to 
as having a son Thomas Dudley. 1 

1 Isabel, wife of Richard Sheldon, yeonian, was buried at Wednesbury, 26tli 
May, 1607, and Richard Sheldon, yeoman, on 10th September, 1613. In his will 
Richard Sheldon mentions his daughter's son, Thomas Dudley ; the children of his 
son-in-law, Roger Hawkes, late deceased ; the children of his son-in-law, Richard 
Nightingall, late deceased ; his daughters-in-law, Agnes Wightweek, and " Tymosen " 
Nightingall ; Catherine Burnell, " my daughter's daughter " ; Agnes Syddowne, 
"my daughter's daughter"; Thomas Burnell, "my daughter's son"; Richard 
Hawkes and Alice, his wife ; his son, Thomas Sheldon ; and Richard, Thomas 
William, and Elizabeth, children of his sou, lle:;ry Sheldon. 



64 DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

Edward Dudley was evidently a man of means, and of some 
social importance. His name appears in the list of those Stafford- 
shire gentlemen who were fined for not taking the order of 
Knighthood at the coronation of King Charles I., the amount of 
his fine being 14. He lived to an advanced age, 1 and was buried 
at Tipton, 2nd March, 1653-4, leaving issue a son Thomas 
(apparently his only child), who was baptised at Tipton, 3rd 
September, 1592. Elizabeth, his wife, is not once referred to in 
his will, and had evidently long been dead. I take it that she was 
the Elizabeth Dudley who was buried at Wednesbury 9th October, 
1592, in which case she must have died in child-birth. 

Edward Dudley's will was proved at Westminster, 27th April, 
1654, and is registered in " Alchin," fol. 117, from which I extract 
the following copy 

In the name of God Amen. July 1, 1652, I Edward Dudley of Typton 
al's Typington in the county of Stafford, yeoman, beinge growne aged and 
knowing and considering that all flesh is borne to dye, but the tyme 
uncertayne ; and in a good and perfect niinde and remembrance, God be 
thanked for itt, doe make this my last Will and Testament in manner and 
forme followinge : First and principally I doe gyve and bequeath my Soule 
unto Almighty God, my Creator, my Redeemer, and Sanctyfier, and my 
body to be buryed in the chaucell of the parish [church] of Typton aforesaid. 

To my sonne Thomas Dudley one chayre, a musterd milne, a buffet 
stoole, the bedstead in the soller over the buttry, with the head and teaster 
thereto belouginge, the iron bound coffer, the longe forme in the hall house, 

1 It appears from his answer (sworn at Tipton, 21st October, 1651) to an 
Exchequer Bill that he had then been " for many years last past very lame," and 
" now ys become very aged." From the same record it appears that lie had pur- 
chased Greet Bridge meadow, with a close or moor adjoining in Tipton, to him and 
his heirs for ever, from Katherine, widow of Edward Hussey, Esq., and Edward, 
her son and heir. (Exchequer Bills, Commonwealth, 1651, No. 8). 

These, and other lands in Bilston, Bradley, Sedgley, Tipton, &c., had been 
acquired, by deed dated 20th February, 4 Elizabeth, 1562, from Margaret, widow 
of Humphrey Rugeley, of Longdon, and Francis, her son and heir, by Richard 
Hussey, of Albright Hussey. co. Salop (see Shaw, 1, 212, and II, 172) ; and according 
to a pedigree of Rugeley in Harl. M.S., 1241, Margaret ^described in 1558 as " of 
Tipton, widow,") was the "daughter of Dudley." I have been unable to 

discover her parentage, but she seems to have borne for arms the two passant lions 
of Somery. For these arms, together with several shields of the Rugeley alliances 
are represented upon a handsome monument in the Church of the Dominican 
monks at Bruges, erected to the memory of Francis Rugeley, Esq., who died in 
1652, described as " fils de Fra^ois, gentilhomme Anglois, qui quitta biens et patrie 
pour la foy Catholique." See an account of this and other sepulchral memorials of 
the English at Bruges, in Nichols's " Topographer and Genealogist," vol. ii, p. 487, 
where is also a pedigree of this branch of the family of Rugeley, in which Margaret 
is called " daughter of Sutton."

my executors of this my last Will and Testament. 

I appoint Mr. Thomas Lane, of Bentley, Esq., and my cozen John Allin, 
of Wolverhampton (my kinsman), and Colborne Brinley, 1 of Wolverhampton, 

1 Collborne Brinley was a member of the family of Brinley or Brindley of 
Willenhall, and of the Hyde in Kinver. He was the son of another Colborne 
Brinley, of Wolverhampton, by Katherine, his wife, who appears to hare married 
secondly one Roger Darby. By Susannah, his wife, Coleborne Brindley had issue 
three daughters and co-heirs, viz., Katherine, unmarried ; Anne, wife of Francis 
Richardson, of Wolverliarnpton, apothecary ; and Elizabeth, married to Thomas 
Richardson, of Ashborne, co. Derby, apothecary. These co-heirs are described in 
two deeds, dated respectively 1682 and 1699, as daughters and co-heiresses-at-law 
of Coleborne Brinley, gent., deceased, and grand-daughters of one Katlierine Brinley. 
These deeds relate to a farm in Rowley Regis called " Colborne's Farm" which, 
it ia stated, had been leased by indenture dated 30 Elizabeth, 1588, to John, son 
of Roger Coleborne, of Rowley. Robert Brinley, of London, merchant, a native of 
Wolverhampton or Willenhall, who left the interest of 100 for the support of an 
evening lecture in the parish Church of Wolverhamgton, refers, in his will dated 
28th November, 1658, to his " cousin Coleborne Brinley." 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 67 

Overseers of this my last Will and Testament, hopinge they will see the 
same honestly and sufficiently performed and executed. And I give to the 
said Mr. Lane, my cozen Allen, and Colborne Brinley, 40s. a piece for their 
paynes to be taken in the premises. And for further confirmation and 
approbacon that this is my last Will and Testament, I, the said Edward 
Dudley, have hereunto putt my hand and seale 1st July, 1652. 

(Signed) EDWARD DUDLEY. 

Sealed and confirmed, published and declared, to be the last Will and 
Testament of Edward Dudley in the presence of Mary Cookes, John Jukes, 
William Mallin, Will : Shyrt, Eichd. Baker, Eichd. Eodes, Colborne Brinley. 

Of William and Henry, younger brothers of Edward Dudley, I 
have learned very little more than is to be gathered from their 
brother's will. The former, we learn, was of Tipton, and had issue 
William, Eichard, Edward, John, and a daughter Elizabeth Deane. 
William and Richard were executors of their uncle's will. Among 
the title deeds to an estate in Tipton belonging to Col. T. W. 
Fletcher, is an indenture dated 8th May, 1673, made between 
Richard Dudley of Tipton, yeoman, " surviving executor of the will 
of Edward Dudley of Tipton aforesaid, gentleman," of the one part, 
and Edward Dudley of Tipton, gentleman, of the other part. It 
recites a mortgage from the said Richard Dudley to the said 
Edward Dudley deceased, of a meadow or parcel of land in Tipton, 
part of Potter's tenement, and it was agreed that the said meadow 
should not be forfeited for ten years if the interest was duly paid. 

It appears, therefore, that William Dudley, jun., was then dead, 
and the Tipton registers record the burial of a William Dudley, on 
29th November, 1656, who may have been he, if indeed he was not 
William the father, but I am inclined to think the latter was dead 1 
at the date of his brother's will. Richard Dudley may possibly be 
the Richard Dudley of Wednesbury, who by Frances his wife had 
several children baptised at Tipton, arid who was buried there 25th 
October, 1680, but I have no evidence to offer in support of this 
conjecture. Of Edward and John, the other sons of William, sen., 
I am unable to supply any information, though I presume the 
former was the Edward son of William Dudley, who was baptised 
at Tipton, 1 7th November, 1616. Of Elizabeth Deane, his daughter, 
I find at Tipton the baptism on 9th January, 1619-20, of Elizabeth, 

1 A William Dudley of Tipton, nailor, made a will on 29th May, 1643, by which 
he leaves all he has to Eleanor, his wife. It is witnessed by Henry Dudley, William 
Dudley, Edward Dudley, and Elizabeth Dudley, and was proved at Lichfield, 16th 
April, 1649. I do not find his burial at Tipton, but " Eleanor, widow of Mr. 
William Dudley," was buried there 15th April, 1656.

daughter of William Dudley, the marriage there on 7th June, 1649, 
of Edward Dowries (?) to Elizabeth Dudley, and the burial on 15th 
February, 1653-4, of Edward, son of Edward and Elizabeth Deane. 

Henry Dudley, as we learn from his brother's will, was living 
with his wife Margaret at Greet Bridge, in 1652, and had issue 
three sons, William, Edward, and John, and a daughter Jane Bydle. 
Jane, daughter of Henry Dudley was baptised at Tipton, 15th 
August, 1613, William, son of the same, on 7tli March, 1618-19 ; 
and (say the registers) " Henry Dudley, an aged man, dyed and was 
bury d on y e 4 May, 1663." William was perhaps the man who 
married Elizabeth Perry in 1637, but with nothing to help save the 
confusing entries in the Tipton and adjoining parish registers, it is 
impossible to decide. 

Thomas Dudley, the (apparently) only son of Edward, was 
baptised at Tiptop, 3rd September, 1592, and buried there 9th 
January, 1674-5, aged 83. It appears from some Exchequer 
proceedings dated 1622 that he was keeper of the Conigree park 
of Dudley, he having acquired from the then Lord Dudley a lease 
of the " lodge within the park " in consideration of keeping the said 
park and " looking to y e deare, &c." In this capacity he got into 
hot water with the sequestrator of my Lord's estate for resistance 
and contempt of his. commission. It is added that "the said park 
is disparked and there are no deer there." Thomas Dudley married 
(on 16th November, 1612 1 according to the pedigree compiled by 
Mr. Beltz) Katherine, one of the natural daughters of Edward Lord 
Dudley by Elizabeth Tomlinson, of whose will, made 3rd July, 
1629, he was one of the executors. 

I have not found his will, but that of his widow " Katherine 
Dudley of Tipton alias Tibbington, widow," is dated 27th October, 
1675, and was proved at Lichfield, 30th October, 1676. She was 
buried at Tipton as " Mrs. Kathren Dudley, aged about 87 years " on 
31st October, 1675. In her will she mentions her sons Cornelius 
Dudley and Humble Dudley ; her daughters Katherine Keelinge 
and Anna Sheldon ; her grandchild Hannah Dudley, " daughter of 

1 There seems to be no authority for this date save the ipse dixit of Thomas 
Dudley, who died 1825. The marriage is not recorded in any of the parish registers 
that 1 hare searched, and I have therefore no means of ascertaining its true date ; but 
seeing that William their second son was not born till 1625, I cannot think they 
were married so early as 161-'. Edward their eldest son, may be the Edward, son 
of Thomas, bapt. at Dudley, 24th March, 1621-2, as I have suggested in the text, 
but it is by no means certain, as there was more than one Thomas Dudley at that 
date. 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 69 

my son Cornelius Dudley"; her grandchild Katherine Dudley, 
" daughter of my son Humble Dudley," (to whom she gives, inter 
alia, "a flaxen cloth which her mother fetched from William 
Whitehouse"); Thomas, "son of my son Edward Dudley"; and 
her grandchild Edward Woodward, " now son-in-law to my son 
Richard Keelinge" ; and finally she appoints his said son-in-law 
Richard Keelinge sole executor. 

The will is attested by William Keelinge, Elizabeth Hincks, 
and Joseph Hincks, and the inventory, dated 10th December, 1675, 
was made by Jeremiah AVhitehouse. Thomas and Katherine had 
issue : 

1. Edward, (probably the " Edward, son of Thomas Dudley, 

gent," who was baptised at St. Thomas's, Dudley, 24th 
March, 1621-2) of whom hereafter. 

2. William, baptised at St. Edmund's, Dudley, 19th April, 

1625, as " son of Mr. Thomas Dudley of the Conigree." 
He probably died young as he is not mentioned in his 
mother's will. 

3. Cornelius, baptised at St. Edmund's, Dudley, 30th May, 

1627, who appears to have resided at West Bromwich. He 
had a daughter Hannah, living in 1675, whose baptism I 
have not found; and it appears that he also had the 
following further issue: An unnamed child buried at 
West Bromwich, 3rd November, 1663 ; Katherine buried 
at West Bromwich, 7th August, 1667; Peter, baptised at 
Tipton, 3rd December, 1674, as son of " Cornelius and 
(blank) Dudley of Bromidge," and buried at West 
Bromwich, 6th January, 1680-1; "Leeny" (a son), 
baptised at West Bromwich, 1st February, 1676 ; 
' Markber " (a daughter) baptised at West Bromwich, 
30th October, 1680. On 18th January, 1680-1, "Sibi" 
and Martha, daughters of Cornelius Dudley, were buried at 
West Bromwich. Finally on 12th July, 1685, Cornelius 
Dudley was himself buried there ; and on 25th November, 
1685, administration of his effects was granted at Lichfield 
to Dorothy Dudley his relict. Humble Dudley was 
surety, and the inventory, dated 13th July, 1685, was 
made by Richard Sheldon, Humble Dudley, Moses Bird, 
and Mary Dudley. 

4. Humble, baptised at St. Edmund's, Dudley, as son of 

1 She also mentions Richard Hincks of Tipton, but not as a relative. 



70 DUDLEY OF TIPTOX. 

Thomas Dudley "of the Cunnigree," 20th August, 1629. 
Of him next. 

5. Katharine, baptised at St. Edmund's as daughter of " Mr. 

Thomas Dudley of the Cunnygrey," 15th December, 1631, 
married to Richard Keelinge. 1 It would appear from 
her mother's will that she was first married to .... 
Woodward and by him had a son Edward Woodward, 
whom she calls " son-in-law," (i.e. stepson ?) to Richard 
Keelinge. 

6. Hannah, baptised at St. Edmund's as " daughter of Thomas 

and Katherine Dudley of Cunnygree," 20th August, 1635, 
wife of Richard Sheldon of Walsall. Their banns were 
published at Tipton for the last time on 19th August, 
1660, but there is no record there of their actual 
marriage. 

Humble Dudley, the fourth sou of Thomas and Katherine, had 
by Mary his wife the following issue : 

1. Thomas son of Humble and Mary Dudley, born 20th 

May, 1654. (Tipton Register). 

2. Katherine, " daughter of Humbell and Mary Dudley, born 

1st January, 1656-7," (/&.). Her birth 011 the same day 
(as daughter of Humble and Mary Dudley of Tipton) 
is also noted in the parish registers of Dudley. 

3. Matthew, baptised at Dudley, as son of Humble and Mary 

Dudley of Tipton, 3rd March, 1658-9. Of him presently. 

4. Humble, baptised at Tipton, 22nd November, 1663, as son 

of Humble and Mary and then " aged 2 days." 

5. Mary, baptised at Tipton, 3rd February, 1666-7. 

1 Richard Keeling of Brierley (in Sedgley) was buried at Tipton, 10th January, 
1694-5, and Katherine Keeling of Brierley, on 28th August, 1705. Their son 
Richard was baptised there 4th November, 1675. The will of Richard Keeling the 
elder " of Brayerley in the parish of Sedgley yeoman " is dated 3rd December, 
1694, and was proved at Lichfield, 18th June, 1697. He mentions his "now loving 
wife Katherine," his mother " Timozin " Keeling, his kinswoman Martha Jevens, 
daughter of my brother-in-law John Jevens," and his " well-beloved son Richard 
Keeling." He appoints the latter his sole executor, and his (testator's) brother 
Thomas Keeling overseer. Richard Keeling of Brierley, apparently the son so- 
named of Richard and Katherine, was married to Mary Squire at Sedgley on 29th 
November, 1701. They had three daughters, Katherine, Frances, and Mary, the 
two first baptised at Sedgley on 10th September, 1702, and 25th May, 1704, 
respectively, and the last at Tipton, on 6th June, 1706, as daughter of Richard 
Keeling of Brierley. 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 71 

6. Esther, baptised at Tipton, 6th June, 1669. 

7. Edward, born 13th, and baptised at Tipton, 31st December, 

1671. 

8. "Annye," daughter of Humble and Mary Dudley, born 

about 27th February, and buried 27th March, 1676 
(Tipton Registers). Perhaps buried is an error for 
baptised, for on 2nd October, 1676, Anne, daughter of 
Humble and Mary Dudley was buried, " aged 7 months." 
Humble Dudley, who made no will, was buried at West Brom- 
wich on 9th October, 1687. Of his sons and their descendants I 
have no certain information, but there was a Matthew Dudley 
buried at West Bromwich, 30th April, 1714 (or 1715), who maybe 
identified with the third child of Humble and Mary. In 1691 
Matthew Dudley of West Bromwich, obtained a licence from 
Lichfield to marry Elizabeth Brooks. This Matthew died intestate, 
and administration (he being described as a husbandman of West 
Bromwich) was granted at Lichfield, 3rd May, 1715, to Elizabeth 
Dudley his relict. The inventory was made 2nd May, 1715, by 
Humble Dudley and Richard Sterry. Elizabeth, his widow, was 
buried at West Bromwich, 21st January, 1725-6, having made a 
will, (wherein she is described as of West Bromwich, widow) on 
14th January, 1725-6. Of this will, which was proved at Lichfield, 
18th February, 1725-6, she constitutes John Oakley, of West 
Bromwich, sole executor. It is. attested by Humble Dudley 
senior, Joseph Firkin, and Job Wiggin, junior. She mentions her 
sons Humble, Thomas, and Matthew, and her daughters Mary, 
Hannah, Elizabeth, and Anne. The West Bromwich registers do 
not record the marriage of Matthew and Elizabeth, but they show 
the baptisms or births of the following children of "Matthew 
Dudley " : 

1. Anah, baptised 2nd November, 1691. 

2. Humble, baptised 16th July, 1693. 

3. Mathew, born 18th September, 1695. 

4. Mary, born 27th (? August), 1697. 

5. Thomas, born 12th January, 1700-1. 

6. Anne, born 2nd September, 1703. 

7. Anne (sic), born 7th February, 1705-6. 

It may be mentioned that the West Bromwich registers also 
record the marriage on 5th August, 1703, of Humble Dudley to 
Ann Harper, and the burial of Humble Dudley on 5th August, 



72 DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

1728. Also the baptisms of children of Matthew Dudley, 
apparently the Matthew born in 1695, as follows : 

William, baptised 30th May, 1719 ; Elizabeth, baptised 12th 
February, 1720-1; Mary, baptised 10th February, 1722-3. On 
5th April. 1728 " the wife of Matthew Dudley " was buried ; 011 
3 1st January, 1730-1, Matthew Dudley and Elizabeth Turner 
were married. Next we find Rebecca, daughter of Matthew 
Dudley, baptised 12th December, 1731, and James, son of the 
same, baptised 6th January, 1731-2. 

Edward Dudley, the eldest son of Thomas and Katherine, is 
referred to by Shaw as having lent money to the Parliament 
during the Civil Wars, and as holding a Captain's commission 
under Cromwell. The original commission here referred to is still 
in the possession of the family. It is addressed by " Charles 
Fleetwood, Esq., Commander-in-Chiefe of the Armies and Land 
Forces of this Commonwealth," to " Capt. Edward Dudley," and 
constitutes the said Edward " Captaine of a Company of Foot 
raised and to be raised in the countie of Stafford in Colonell 
Crompton's Regiment." Dated Wallingford House, 1st November, 
1659, and signed by Charles Fleetwood. Capt. Dudley died a 
short time before his father, having been buried at Tipton as 
"Edward Dudley, gent.," on 15th August, 1674. Administration 
of his effects was granted at Lichfield llth September to Mary his 
widow. Humble Dudley was surety, and there is a bond for the 
guardianship of the intestate's children Thomas, Sarah, and Mary, 
who were minors. The inventory was made 20th August, 1674, by 
William Haughton and Jeremiah Whitehouse. He appears to have 
had two wives, Sarah and Mary. I have not discovered the family 
name of the former, but the latter was the daughter of William 
Steward of Rowley Regis, gent., and their settlement before 
marriage is dated 20th September, 1658. "Sarah, the wife of Mr. 
Edward Dudley," was buried at Tipton, 24th July, 1655 ; by her he 
had a daughter Priscilla, born 1st May, 1654, and an unbaptised 
son, born 3rd July and buried 9th July, 1655. Mary, the second 
wife, was buried at Tipton, 26th November, 1707. Her will as of 
Tipton alias Tybbington, widow, is dated 10th June, 1705, and 
was proved at Lichfield, 12th November, 1708. She mentions her 
son Thomas Dudley ; her grandchildren Martha Dudley, Edward 
Dudley, William Dudley, and Joseph Eccleshall Dudley; her 
grandchild Mary Sterry, "daughter of my son-in-law Richaid 






DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 73 

Sterry;" her (testatrix's) daughter Mary, "now the wife of 
Eichard Sterry "; and her "other two grandchildren, viz.: Eichard 
Sterry and Edward Sterry." Her friend John Chambers, sen., of 
Tipton, nailor, is made sole executor. The will is witnessed by 
Jacob Hyde, Hannah Edg, and Alexander Whitehouse, and the 
inventory was made by John Chambers, Eichard Nightingale, and 
Edward Grice. Edward and Mary had issue : 

1. " Thomas, son of Edward and Mary Dudley, borne " at 

Eowley Eegis, 9th March, 1660-1, of whom next. 

2. Sarah, " borne" at Tipton, 4th September, 1661 ; married to 

Eichard Dipple, called in Beltz's pedigree, " of Mounches 
Hall, near Bromsgrove, co. Worcester," and it is added 
that she " died of consumption, and left no family." At 
Worcester is calendared the will of " Sarah Dipple alias 
Dudley, late of the parish of Bromsgrove," proved 4th 
June, 1681. She describes herself as " Sarah Dudley of 
Typton, co. Stafford, Spinster, eldest daughter of Edward 
Dudley, late of Typton aforesaid deceased, and Mary 
Dudley, widow, relict and sole executrix of the said 
Edward Dudley." The will is dated 28th December, 1678. 
It recites that whereas her said mother, since the death 
of her said father had permitted her to redeem and take 
up a mortgage of certain lands and tenements in Tipton 
alias Tipington, called Dedgferd, Colepitt Leasow, and 
Cockshutt, and heretofore mortgaged to Henry Gough, 
Esq., for the sum of 100, which mortgage or sum of 
money, together with all advantage thereof, was granted 
and assigned to the said Sarah Dudley for and towards 
her portion ; and there being, by God's permission, a 
marriage intended to be specially had and solemnized 
between her and one Eichard Dipple of Bromsgrove, 
butcher, she, the testatrix, therefore gives and devises to 
the said Eichard Dipple the aforesaid mortgage, with full 
benefit thereof, and appoints him her sole executor. The 
marriage no doubt took place, but the young lady did not 
long survive it, for the Tipton registers record the burial 
on 27th June, 1680, of " Sarah Dibble of Bromsgrove." 

3. Hester, baptised at Eowley Eegis, 29th December, 1662, 

and buried there 2nd February following. 

4. Miraim, baptised at Eowley, 12th October, 1664, and buried 

at Tipton, 21st October, 1669. 



74 DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

5. Mary, whose baptism I have not found. She was married 
by licence at Tipton 18th April, 1699, to Mr. Eicbard 
Sterry, 1 and, as appears from her mother's will, had issue 
Richard, Edward, and Mary. 

1 Richard Sterry appears to have been the son of Richard Sterry of West Brom- 
wich, and grandson of Richard Sterry of the Swan Inn (whence "Swan Village") 
by Alice his wife. Mary, daughter of Richard Sterry (and sister I presume of this 
Richard, though I have not found her baptism), was married at West Bromwich, 
29th October, 1700, to Thomas Dudley of that place. The West Bromwich registers 
record the birth, on 16th October, 1655, of " Richard, son of Richard Sterry of the 
Swanne and Alse his wife," and on 29th January, 1678-9, that of Richard, son of 
Richard (junr.). A few days afterwards, viz., on 2nd February, 1678-9, "Richard, 
son of Richard Sterry of West Bromwich, was baptized at Wednesbury, no doubt 
the same child. 

The above-named Thomas Dudley was a wheelwright at West Bromwich, and 
son of another Thomas, also a wheelwright, who purchased a portion of the Shelton 
estate. He was buried at West Bromwich, 5th October, 1711, having made a will, 
dated 23rd June, and proved at Lichfield, 7th November, 1711, wherein he mentions 
his wife Mary, his father-in-law Richard Sterry, his mother Margery, and his 
children Thomas, Joseph, Mary, and Martha. One of the witnesses to the will is 
"Jo. Grove," and it is sealed with the following arms, three leaven, two and one, on 
a canton as many cresents two and one, the same coat as that impaled, for Grove, 
on the monument in Aldridge church, of Katherine, wife of Samuel Leigh, gent., 
and daughter ol Thomas Grove of Rowley Regis, gent., who died 8th June, 1711. 
(See Shaw ii, 101). "Mr. Samuel Lee of Aldridge, and M rig . Catherine Grove," 
were married at Rowley Regis, 14th July, 1692. Thomas Dudley, the father, was 
buried at West Bromwich, 19th November, 1696 ; his will is dated 22nd May, 1695, 
and was proved at Lichfield, 2nd March, 1696-7. He mentions his wife Margery ; 
his son Thomas ; his brother-in-law George Symcox ; his daughters Frances, wife of 
William Hawkes ; Ann, wife of John Hodgetts ; Sarah, wife of John Ranns ; Mar- 
gery, wife of John Dabbs, alias Dobbs ; and his grandchild (under 21) William 
Hill. From the fact of his having a brother-in-law George Symcox, it is pretty 
clear that he was one of the sons of Edward Dudley of West Bromwich, cooper, 
buried at West Bromwich, 2nd January, 1692-3, who, according to his will, dated 
2nd November, 1687, and proved at Lichfield in January, 1692-3, had a wife Mary, 
three sons, Edward, Thomas (who had a son Thomas), and William ; and six 
daughters, viz., Sarah, wife of William Stamps, who had a son John ; Eleanor, 
wife of Richard Hill, who had a son Richard ; Margaret, wife of Samuel Adden- 
brooke, who had a son Samuel ; Elizabeth, wife of Edward Hargreave, 
wife of George Symcox (her baptismal name is not given, but Judith, daughter of 
Edward and Mary Dudley, was baptised at West Bromwich, 21st July, 1639, and 
George Symcox and " Judde" Dudley were married there 23rd April, 1668), and 
. married to ... Langley, who had issue Thomas Langley, and Ann 
Langley. 

In what way, if any, these Dudleys were related to those of Tipton, I have not 
ascertained ; but the name frequently occurs in the West, Bromwich registers, 
which commence in 1608 ; and the earliest will I have found is that of William 
Dudley of West Bromwich, yeoman, dated 8th May, 1596, and proved in London, 
23rd August, 1598. This William had a " cousin " Edward, who was perhaps 
Edward of Tipton. His son and heir Thomas Dudley was under twenty-one, and 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 75 

Thomas Dudley, the only son, was of the Greenhouse, Tipton. 
Col. T. W. Fletcher, of Lawneswood, has a bond dated 23rd March, 
1708, from Humphrey Wyrley, Esq., to " Thomas Dudley alias 
Somery, of Tipton, gent.," for performance of covenants contained 
in a certain indenture of lease bearing even date therewith. He 
married by licence at Sedgley or Tipton (for the marriage is 
recorded in the registers of both parishes 1 ) on 3rd October, 1689, 
Martha, daughter of the Eev. Joseph Eccleshall of Coseley in 
Sedgley parish. 2 The bond on their marriage (penes Col. Fletcher) 

he had another son William, and two daughters, Elizabeth and Mary. He also 
names his brother-in-law Robert Salter, and the will is attested by Richard Dudley, 
Edward Dudley, Symon Rider, and John Nock. 

There was also a " Thomas Dudley the elder " of West Bromwich, yeoman, 
possibly the above testator's son, whose will was proved in London, 30th June, 1652, 
but whose burial I do not find in the registers. The will is dated, 26th October, 
1650, and is registered in " Bowyer," fo. 131. He mentions his wife Ellen, his 
eldest son Edward Dudley, and his fourth son John Dudley, and gives cottages, etc., 
at Rowley Regis to his second son Thomas and his third son Richard. He also 
mentions Thomas Chambers, alias Ireland, John Chambers, William Chambers, 
Richard Chambers, and Ellen Chambers, all under twenty-one, children of his 
daughter Mary Chambers deceased. His wife and son Thomas to be executors, and 
"Mr. Thomas Grove of West Bromwich and my brother William Dudley of 
Rushall " to be overseers. 

1 Sedgley. " Thomas Dudley of Tipton, al's Tibbington, gent., and Mrs. 
Martha Eccleshall of Coseley were married, 3rd October, 1689." Tipton (same date) 
" Mr. Thomas Dudley and Mrs. Martha Eccleshall, married by Mr. Janns, by 
licence from Lichfield." The Rev. Thomas Janns was then Vicar of Sedgley. 

2 Joseph Eccleshall was an eminent Nonconformist minister. Shaw (ii, 222), 
quoting Palmer's " Nonconformist's Memorial," states that he was invited from a 
lectureship at Dudley by the inhabitants of Sedgley to assist their Yicar, Mr. 
Parkes, who was old and infirm. Mr. William Parkes, who was Yicar of Sedgley 
for twenty-eight years, " dyed" (say the Sedgley registers), 12th September, 1656. 
Two years before this, viz., 27th October, 1654, " Joseph Eccleshall, minister," was 
chosen register for the parish. " When it became necessary, Mr. Eccleshall 
studied the terms of conformity" (says Shaw), but he was evidently removed, 
for we read that he " preached his farewell sermon, 17th August, 1662, to a 
large congregation all in tears; and on August 24th, none coming to officiate, 
he went into a pew, prayed, and read the Scriptures, expounded, and preached." 
After this he officiated for several years at two meeting houses, the parish being a 
large one, and dying in 1692, his funeral sermon was preached by Mr. Oasland 
(probably Henry Oasland, who was a minister at Bewdley, and died, 19th October, 
1703, aged eighty, at Kingswinford where he has a memorial). " Mr. Joseph Eccles- 
hall, of Coseley, who was formerly minister of Sedgley," was buried at Sedgley, 
22nd December, 1692; and in the Tipton registers are the following entries: 1669, 
'' Martha, wife of Joseph Eccleshall, clerke, died at Coseley and was buried at Tipton, 
10th January"; and 1670, April 13th, " Henry Eccleshall, of Coseley, father of Mr. 
Joseph Eccleshall, buried." It is probable that Thomas and Martha Dudley were 
likewise Nonconformists. 



76 DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 

is dated 14th June, 1689, he being described as " Thomas Dudley 
de la Greenhouse," gent. Mr. Eccleshall thereby covenants to 
surrender and assure a messuage at Coseley, then in his own 
occupation, with certain lands and premises, to the use of the said 
Thomas Dudley, his heirs and assigns, according to the custom of 
the manor of Sedgley. 

" Martha, wife of Mr. Thomas Dudley," was buried at Tipton, 
24th November, 1704. He survived her and was buried there 
26th February, 1722-3. His wiU, as "of Tipton Green, gent.," 
is dated 2nd May, 1722, and was proved at Lichfield in May, 1723. 
He refers to his real estate at Tipton and at Ettingsall in Sedgley ; 
mentions his son Edward Dudley and Anne wife of the said 
Edward ; his son-in-law, Charles Elwell and Martha his wife ; his 
grandchildren, Charles Elwell, Thomas Elwell, Miraim Elwell, 
Martha Elwell, and Sarah Elwell ; his daughter, Miraim Dudley ; 
his "loving and obedient son and daughter, Joseph Eccleshall 
Dudley and Miraim Dudley," to whom he gives real estate, and 
whom he appoints executors. He had the following issue : 

1. Edward Dudley, of whom next. 

2. Joseph Eccleshall Dudley, who " died unmarried 1722, 

aged about 24 " (Beltz pedigree). " Joseph Eckellshall 
Dudley " (parentage not given) was born at Tipton 3rd 
May, 1701, and " Mr. Joseph the son of Mr. Thomas 
Dudley & (sic) Summary" was buried there llth August, 
1722, some seven months before the death of his father. 

3. William Dudley, mentioned in the will of his grandmother 

Mary 1705, but not in that of his father. Probably 
therefore he died s.p. before 1722. He is omitted from 
Mr. Beltz's pedigree. 
L Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Dudley, gent., and Martha 

his wife, buried at Tipton 4th April, 1700. 
ii. Martha, married before 2nd May, 1722, to Charles Elwell, 
and had issue, Charles, Thomas, Miraim, Martha, and 
Sarah: 

iii. Miraim, daughter of " Mr. Thomas and .... Dudley, 
borne 8th September, 1702 " (Tipton registers). She was 
married at Wednesbury (as " dau. of Mr. Thomas Dudley 
of Tipton") on 1st July, 1723, to the Eev. Edward 
Egginton, Vicar of Wednesbury. Their marriage articles 
(penes Col. T. W. Fletcher.) are dated 29th June, 1723, 



DUDLEY OF TIPTON. 77 

the parties being Thomas Egginton of Doverdale, co. 
Worcester, gent, and Edward Egginton of Wednesbury, 
clerk, of the first part ; Miraim Dudley of the parish of 
Typtoii alias Tibbington, spinster, of the second part ; 
and John Egginton of Eobaston, co. Stafford, gent., 
Thomas Aston of Broome, in the said county, gent., John 
Fellow of Woodsetton, in the parish of Sedgley, and 
Edward Dudley of Tipton aforesaid of the third part. 
" The Eev Mr. Edward Eginton, Vicker of this parish," 
was buried at Wednesbury, 30th December, 1743, and 
"Miraim Eginton, widow of the late Edward Eginton, 
clerk, who was 25 years vicar of Wednesbury," was 
buried there 14th March, 1748-9. 

Edward Dudley of Tipton Green Hall, or the Green House, 
the only surviving (as it would seem) son of Thomas and Martha, 
was born, I suppose, in 1690, for in the Tipton registers is this 
entry, " Edward, son of Mr. Thomas Dudley and Martha his wife, 
was buryed y e 12th day of September, 1690." I feel pretty sure 
that for " buryed " we should read born, 1 though it is of course 
possible for Thomas and Martha (who were married on 3rd October, 
1689) to have had a first born child of that name who died in 
his infancy. Mr. Beltz states that Edward Dudley made a will 
bearing date 16th January, 1745. I suspect, however, it was 
never proved, for no record of its probate is to be found at Lichfield 
or London. 

Edward Dudley married Anne daughter of John Eellow of 
Woodsetton in Sedgley (whom I take to be the "Ann Dudley, widow," 
who was buried at Tipton, 8th March, 1749-50), and was buried at 
Tiptou, 6th Feb., 1745-46 as " Mr. Edward Dudley, gent." He 
appears to have adopted tae alias of Somery, by which, as has been 
seen, his father was occasionally known. By the said Anne, his 
wife, he had issue : 

1. Thomas, bapt. at Sedgley, as " son of Edward Dudley of 

Tipton, gent., and Anne his wife," 8th July, 1716; of 
whom next. 

2. William, bapt. at Tipton, as sou of " Edward Dudley & 

(sic) Summery, gent., and Ann his wife," 5th March, 
1718-19. He was a surgeon at Dudley, and (according 
to the "Gentleman's Magazine") married on 1st Sept. 1751, 

1 But iu 1694 there is this entry interlined, " May 29th, Edward Dudley was 
born."

Miss Keeling, a lady of agreeable fortune and fine 
accomplishments." She was Anne sister and co-heiress 
of John Keelinge, Esq., and sister of the wife of his elder 
brother Thomas. She died his widow, and was buried at 
Kings winford, 20th Feb., 1784, having by her will left the 
interest of 40 to the poor of that parish. He was buried 
at Kingswinford, 19th Sept. 1761, having had issue by 
the said Anne three children baptised at Dudley, and 
buried at Kingswinford, who all died s.p., viz. : 

1. Anne, baptised 27th March, 1753, buried 26th 

December, 1755.

April, 1758. 

3; Eichard, baptised 18th January, 1757, and buried 
26th April, 1785, aged 28. He is described in 
1775 as being the only child of his parents and 
over 18 years of age, but under 21. The Beltz 
pedigree states that he " died unmarried at the age 
of about 26." 

3. John, baptised at Tipton, 9th March, 1720-21. Mr. Beltz 

states that he was married but died s.p. I have not dis- 
covered the name of his wife, but according to the Tipton 
registers " Mr. John, son of Mr. Edward Dudley," was 
buried there 23rd January, 1744-45. 

4. Joseph, baptised at Tipton, 3rd March, 1722-23, " married, 

but died s.p." (Beltz). 

5. Martha, baptised at Tipton, llth July, 1725, and buried' 

there 13th February following.

Katherine Dudley (vide ante p. 70), but I do not know how. He was the second 
son of William Keelinge of the Lodge, Sedgley, gent., by Eleanor (nee Gibbons) 
his wife and was baptised at Sedgley, 5th November, 1688. He married at 
Pattingham, 23rd September, 1710, Patience, daughter of John Hodgetts of Shutt

winford, 14th April, 1758, having made a will dated 3rd August, 1757, 
and proved in London, 28th January, 1762 (9 St. Eloy). To his 
loving wife Hannah Maria he gives his household goods and a 
legacy of 100. Also 200 to be equally divided among such of 
his brother William's children as should live to be 21. He appoints 
Joseph Green of Dudley, glassmaker, and John Bridgewater of the 
same, spinning-wheel maker, his trustees, and they were to raise 
out of his personal estate 4,500 for his children when 21. He 
devises his landed estates in Tipton and elsewhere to his eldest son 
Thomas for life and then to the heirs of his body in tail male with 
remainder, in default of male issue, to his second sou John and his

heirs, remainder to his brother William and his heirs. His wife 
and the said Joseph Green and John Bridgewater to be his executors

was passed by which the entailed estates were vested in John 
Keelinge, Esq., of Summerhill, and John Gibbons, of the parish of 
Kingswinford, ironmonger, in trust for sale. The Act recites that 
the testator died soon after making his will, leaving three only 
children .all then (1775) of full age, viz., Thomas, John, and Hannah 
Maria, the wife of James Male of Birmingham, ironmonger. His 
children (all baptised at Tipton as children of " Mr. Thomas and

134 EXTRACTS FEOM PARISH REGISTERS. 

TIPTON EEGISTEKS. 

These registers are not well kept, nor are the entries quite 
consecutive, one reason for which is that the books have been 
rebound and some leaves misplaced. They purport to commence 
in 1513, but it is certain that the true date should be 1573. It is 
no doubt the mistake of the early transcriber. 1 The entries are 
here arranged in chronological order. 
1514 Dec. 12, Edward Cuffin and Margt. Dudley, m. 660

1 Mr. Or. F. Beltz, Lancaster Herald, in a letter to the late Rev. Edw. Dudley, 
of Broome, of 3 July, 1827, writes concerning these Registers: "I had entertained 
some doubt respecting the accuracy of the report previously received that the 
registers of this parish [Tipton], were of so early a date as 1513 the Canon for 
keeping parochial registers not having been issued until 1538, and the instances 
being extremely rare of registers of an earlier date than the Canon. The entries in 
the first page purport indeed to begin in 1513 ; but upon a closer inspection I have 
satisfied myself that they commence in point of fact in 1573."

FURTHER ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS TO "THE 
BARONS OF DUDLEY," VOL. IX, PART II. 



P. 107, lines 4 and 12, from bottom, " Doctor Lopns " and " Eoger Lopper." This 
person was probably Dr. Eoger Lopez, who at that date was physician to Queen 
Elizabeth. 

P. 114, Footnote z , line 9. There is no doubt that Alice Dudley was, as here sug- 
gested, betrothed to Sir Ferdinando Dudley. She died 31st May, 1621, aged 
24, and on her monument in Stoneleigh Church, Warwickshire, it is expressly 
stated that she died " ante nuptias," which the anonymous Author of a " Memoir 
of Sic Robert Dudley, Knt.," says "implies that she was betrothed at the time of 
her death," though he was not aware to whom she was so betrothed. She would, 
had she lived, have been Sir Ferdinando's second wife. 

P. 121, line 23, "Ferdinando Dudley, the sonne of the R*. Hon ble . Edward Warde, 
and Katherine (sic) his wife" was baptised at Kingswinford 23rd August, 
1665. 

P. 121, line 28. " Katherine, daughter of Edward Ward, Esq., and Frances his wife " 
was baptised at Kingswinford, 23rd May, 1662. 

P. 122, line 1. " Humbletta daughter of the Hon. Edward Ward, Esq., and Frances 
his wife " was baptised at Kingswinford, 31st March, 1664. 

P. 123, et seq. [Lea family. Since my paper in Vol. IX., part 2, was printed, an 
opportunity has been afforded me of obtaining further extracts from the parish 
registers of Halesowen, and I am thereby enabled to supply several additions 
to, and corrections of the account of the Lea and Smith families.] William 
Lea, (? the testator of 1612) was buried at Halesowen, 16th March, 1617-18, 
Brydgett, daughter of William " Ley " was baptised there 18th July, 1591 (see 
p. 125), and Joyce Lea, widow, was buried 12th May, 1642. Of the issue of 
John and Anne Lea (p. 126) the following were bapt. at Halesowen : William on 
20th September, 1634, Joice on 17th July, 1636, Thomas on 14th June, 1643, and 
Mary (born 4th May) on 6th May, 1654. The other children were no doubt 
also bapt. there, but there are no records now existing between 1643 and 1653. 
" John Lea de Grange " was buried 24th March, 1657-8, and Anne, his widow, 
on 22nd January, 1689-90. On 2nd January, 1654-5, " Humphrey, son of Widow 
Lowe, spinster l (sic) and Joice, dau. of John Lea, yeoman," were married ; and 
their daughter Elizabeth, afterwards the wife of Jacob Smith, was bapt. 30th 
April, 1676. 

P. 126, line 17. Thomas Lea, " de la Grange," was buried at Halesowen 1st 
December, 1705. The registers do not supply the parentage of Thomas Lea's 
" cousin " Hugh Lea (line 29) but they record the marriage on 24th June, 1681, 
of Hugh Lea to Isabel Batch, the baptism on 2nd April, 1684, of William, son of 
Hugh and Isabel Lea, of the Town, and the burial on 9th September, 1714, of 
" Hugh Lea, of the Town." 

1 There are other examples of a widow being described as spinster. 



176 FURTHER ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS. 

P. 126, line 7 from bottom. " Mrs. Elinor Lea, of the Town," was buried 3rd January, 
1711-2, at Halesowen. 

P. 127, I have here described William Lea as a physician, on the authority of sundry 
family papers at Halesowen Grange in some of which he is called " Dr. William 
Lea," and in others " William Lea, physician ;" but it would appear from the 
following curious entry in the Diary 1 of Mr. Justice Rokeby, who went the 
Oxford circuit the year in which Mr. Lea was Sheriff, that he was not a duly 
qualified practitioner : " Worcester, Wednesday, 5th August, '96. William Lea, 
Esquire, Sheriff, an aged p'son, [he was 62] who is a sort of physician (as I am 
informed) and by his goeing from market to market with his medicines hath got 
a great estate, and for it was put into this office." 2 My Lord is not strictly 
accurate, for a large portion of Mr. Lea's " great estate " was certainly inherited. 

P. 127, line 3. Thomas Cowper and Grace Sergeant were married at Halesowen, 
9th July, 1699. They had issue William, baptised 9th June, 1700, Thomas 
baptised 14th December, 1703, and Eleanor baptised 2nd October, 1707. Grace, 
the widow of Thomas Cowper, was buried, 26th June, 1726. The " cousinship " 
came no doubt via Sergeant, for Sarah Perrey " cousin and god-dau.," of 
William Lea (see p. 128, line 2) was the daughter of George Perry by Alice 
Sergeant to whom he was married at Halesowen, 15th January, 1678-9. 

P. 127, line 10. Thomas Palmer and Anne Lea were married at Halesowen, 28th 
January, 1681-2, and Anne dau. of Thomas and Anne Palmer " de la Grange " 
was baptised there 14th November, 1682. 

P. 128, line 3. Penelope Hadeu, legatee of Will. Lea, was the dau. of Thomas and 
Eleanor Haden, and was baptised at Halesowen, 26th December, 1690. Mr. 
Haden then occupied " Dove-house Fields " farm, near the Grange. 

P. 128, line 5, from bottom. Here is a mistake. I followed the Peerages of Collins 
and Jacob in stating that Mary Lea (nee Deeley) died in 1720, but it was really 
her husband, John Lea, who died in that year. It appears from the Halesowen 
Registers that " Mary, wife of Mr. John Lea " was buried 17th April, 1682, 
and that " Mr. John Lea " was buried 2nd December, 1720. Of then* issue I find 
that William was bapt. 19th August, 1678, and Anne on 27th December, 1676. 
Margaret's baptism I have not found. They had also a son John baptised 8th 
March, 1679-80, and buried 29th January, 1682-3. Mr. Alan Garway (line 2 
from bottom) was buried 17 th May, 1715, and Anne, his widow, on 3rd July, 1721. 
They had issue Alan, buried 12th September, 1710, William baptised 2nd July, 
1706, Anne baptised 22nd November, 1708, and Thomas baptised 14th 
December, 1711. 

P. 129, line 16. William Lea, Esq., of the Grange, was buried 13th February, 
1741-2, at Halesowen. 

P. 130, line 8. The settlement of 1737, was post-nuptial. I have not discovered 
where they were married, but their eldest child was baptised in 1734. 

P. 130, line 16. Mary was baptised 19th June, 1723, was married to Dr. Joseph 
Harvey, at St. Kenelm's, 2nd August, 1741, and was buried, 29th May, 1742, 
(Halesowen registers). 

P. 130, line 24. For 14th July, read 14th May. William Lea Briscoe was 
baptised at Kingswinford, 20th April, 1760. The Eev. B. Briscoe and 
Elizabeth had also a daughter who must have died young. I copy the fol- 

1 Privately printed in 1883 by Sir Henry Peek, Bart., from the MS. in his 
possession. 

2 The Judge adds that "Jo. Jcvon" was Mr. Lea's under-sheriff.

lowing from the Kingswinford registers : " Frances, daughter of the Rev. 
Benjamin Briscoe and Elizabeth his wife, was born and baptised on y e 24th of 
July, 1765, at y e Grange in y e parish of Halesowen, in y e county of Salop." 
Elizabeth, "wife of y e Rev. Mr. Briscoe," was buried at, Halesowen, 29th 
August, 1765. 

P. 131. In addition to the children here given of William and Frances Lea, the 
Halesowen registers record the following : Frances, baptised 4th May, and 
buried 16th May, 1713, William, baptised 10th February, and buried 12th 
February, 1713-14, and Diana, baptised llth November, 1724. I do not find 
the burial of the latter, but it is certain that she died young and unmarried. 

P. 139. It appears from the Halesowen parish registers that William Smith of the 
Breach, was buried 27th December, 1684, Jacob, son of William Smith, junr., 
and Sarah his wife, was baptised 10th March, 168U-1, and Mr. Jacob Smith 
and Mrs. Elizabeth Lowe, of Warley-Salop, were married 23rd October, 1709. 
The children of Jacob and Elizabeth, baptised at Halesowen, were Jacob, 
baptised 13th June, 1711, who died unmarried, William, baptised 4th April, 
1713 (husband of Anne Lea), and Mary, baptised 14th April, 1716, married 
22nd December, 1746, to " the Rev. Mr. Richard Chambers, of the parish of 
Cradley " (co. Hereford). 

P. 140, line 6. " William Smith, Esquire," was buried 14th (not 19th) May, 1784, and 
Anne, his wife, 30th April, 1762. Notwithsianding her assumption of the title 
of " Baroness Dudley," she is simply called in the Halesowen registers " Ann, 
wife of Mr. William Smith, of Ridgacre." Their children, baptised at Hales- 
owen, were Harry, baptised 6th August, 1734, buried as " Mr. Harry Grey 
Smith," 31st March, 1760 ; Frances, baptised 30th January, 1735-6 ; Anne, 
baptised 24th March, 1737-8; Mary, baptised 4th January, 1739-40, died 
unmarried ; and Ferdinando, baptised 23rd January, 1746-7. Anne, (line 14) 
was married at Halesowen, 5th Novemb-r (not " in March," ) l 1766, to Edward 
Baker, and on 14th July, 1769, " Edward, son of Mr. Edward and Mrs. Anne 
Baker, born 4th July," was baptised there. 

P. 140, line 20. " Ferdiuando Smith of the Grange, in this parish, Esquire," was 
buried 13th, not 16th January, 1794, and Elizabeth (nee Lyttelton), his widow, 
on 19th February, 1801. 

P. 141, line 1. Elizabeth Smith was baptised 22nd March, 1776. She was the 
second (not first) wife of Mr. Joseph Carruthers, and was buried, 31st May, 
1806. Mr. Carruthers (see foot-note) was married to Jane Crane, on 6th May, 
1790, and she was buried 5th April, 1799. 

P. 141, line 5. Anne Smith was born 5th March, 1778, baptised 8th May, 1778, 
and buried, as " Miss Anne Smith, of the Grange," 14th March, 1791. 

P. 141, line 6. Frances Maria, though born as stated in 1778, was not baptised till 
23rd August, 1780. 

P. 141, line 8, et seq. Amelia was baptised 24th September, 1780, Harriet, on 1st 
December, 1781, and Frances Caroline, on the day of her birth, viz., loth 
April, 1783. 

P. 141, line 18. Matilda was baptised (as Matilda Sophia) 23rd July, 1784, Louisa 
was baptised on 1st June, and buried on 26th October, 1788, and Selina was 
baptised on 7th May, and buried 13th August, 17a9.

1 Dr. Prattinton (MS. Collections for Worcestershire) was my authority for 
the date March.

178 FURTHER ADDITIONS AND CORRECTIONS. 

P. 142. "Walter Woodcock, senr., Esq.," was buried at Halesowen, 7th March, 
1794, and "Mrs. Frances Woodcock, widow," on 14th March, 1800. I do not 
know the parentage of Mr. Woodcock, but I think it probable that he was the 
son of another Walter Woodcock who was Churchwarden of Halesowen in 
1727, and who was buried there 18th March, 1736-7. Thomas, son of Mr. 
Walter and Mary Woodcock, was baptised at Clent, 29th September, 1723, and 
Joseph, son of Walter and Mary Woodcock, at Halesowen, on 5th April, 1726. 
There are also entries at Halesowen of baptisms of children of William and 
Elizabeth Woodcock in 1723, et seq., and the burial of Elizabeth Woodcock, 
widow, on 27th August, 1726. 

P. 143, line 3. The date of the birth of Walter Woodcock, junr., here given, is 
taken from the Chancery papers referred to in p. 142, but it must needs be 
incorrect, for Walter, son of Walter and Frances Woodcock, was baptised at 
Halesowen, 19th October, 1741. The dates of the baptisms of their other 
children at Halesowen are as follows : Ferdinando, 15th July, 1743, Frances, 
29th July, 1745, Catherine, 19th July, 1749 (she was buried as " Miss Catherine 
Woodcock," 2nd December, 1775), Mary, 4th October, 1751, Anne, 9th January, 
1754, Elizabeth, 26th November, 1755, and Sarah, 6th July, 1763. 

P. 144, line 6. Joseph, son of Benjamin and Mary Smart, was baptised at Hales- 
owen, 23rd April, 1786. 

P. 145, line 12. Pynson, son of Mr. William and Ann Wilmot, was baptised at 
Halesowen, 3rd May, 1775. 

P. 146, line 8. George, son of Mr. William and Ann Wilmot, was baptised at 
Halesowen, 28th December, 1776. 

P. 147, line 1. "Joseph Fereday, of Dudley, bachelor, and Catherine Wilmot, 
spinster, of this parish," were married at Halesowen, 18th May, 1805. 

P. 150. Hughes : " The Eev. Thomas Hughes, of the parish of Colwell, bachelor, 
and Sarah Woodcock, spinster," were married by licence at Halesowen, llth 
January, 1788.
