who appears to have been her maternal grandmother, Maud (de Saint

Philibert) Trussell. She married shortly after 20 August 1373 (grant

of her marriage) RALPH STAFFORD, Esq., of Stafford and Crakemarsh,

Staffordshire, and, in right of his wife, of Grafton, Worcestershire,

Grandborough, Leamington Hastings, etc., Warwickshire, and Shenington,

Oxfordshire, Knight of the Shire for Worcestershire, 1383, 1384, 1401,

Justice of the Peace for Worcestershire, 1389–1390, Knight of the

Knt., of Bramshall and Amblecote, Staffordshire, Knight of the Shire

for Staffordshire, Joint Warden of part of the Marches of Scotland, by

Margaret, daughter of Ralph de Stafford, K.G., 1st Earl of Stafford

[see STAFFORD 9]. He was born about 1355. They had three sons,

Humphrey, Knt., John, and Fulk (clerk). He accompanied his cousin,

Hugh Stafford, Earl of Stafford, in the French expedition of 1373. He

was in France in 1376, when the dean of Poitiers granted him a license

to choose his own confessor. He went abroad again in 1381, when he

was issued letters of protection as a member of the free company

commanded by Theodore, the so-called canon of Robesart. Further

letters were issued to him in 1383, on his departure to Dunkirk with

Henry le Despenser, Bishop of Norwich, for his ill fated crusade on

behalf of the rebellious townsmen of Ghent. In 1384 he and his

cousin, Sir Nicholas Stafford, were appointed to act as attorneys for

Richard Tyseo, a clerk. In 1390, he was arrested and held in the

Tower, as a result of his violent intervention in a dispute over a

prebend at the collegiate church of Gnosall, Staffordshire. He was

examined in Chancery, and released on bail of £600, raised by his

brother, Humphrey Stafford, Knt., and John Delves, Knt. In 1399 he

obtained a papal indult allowing plenary remission of sins at the hour

of death. He was a retainer for his cousin, Humphrey Stafford, Earl

of Stafford, during the rebellion of 1400, and followed the Earl on

his journey to Scotland later that year. In 1401 he was bound over in

100 marks to behave peaceably towards Ralph Merston. In 1405 William

Beauchamp, Lord Bergavenny, claimed that he and his son, Humphrey,

broke into his park at Feckenham, Worcestershire and caused

considerable damage. In 1406 he acquired lands in Longridge (in

Penkridge), Staffordshire from Simon Pykstoke and his wife, Alice.

RALPH STAFFORD, Esq., died 1 March 1410. His wife, Maud, predeceased

him.

bench, and never held office as either sheriff or escheator. Yet his

later life was not uneventful, showing signs of a bellligerent

temperament which may account for his lack of promotion.”).

10. HUMPHREY STAFFORD, Knt., of Grafton, Worcestershire, Leamington

Hastings, Grandborough, etc., Warwickshire, and, in right of his wife,

of Huncote, Leicestershire, Bourton-on-Dunsmore, Warwickshire, and

Ditchampton, Wiltshire, Knight of the Shire for Worcestershire, rider

of Feckenham Forest, son and heir, born about 1384 (aged 26 in 1410).

He married before 1400 ELIZABETH BURDET, daughter and heiress of John

Burdet, Knt., of Huncote (in Narborough), Leicestershire, by

Katherine, daughter of John Arderne, Knt. They had three sons, John,

Humphrey, Knt., and William. His youthful years were filled with

violent incident. In 1401 Thomas Beauchamp, Earl of Warwick, was

ordered to arrest him, his servant and two men from Bromsgrove and

bring them before the King’s Council to face indictment for the murder

of Richard Merston. In 1403 he entered the service of Henry of

Monmouth, Prince of Wales, as an esquire and likely fought at the

Battle of Shrewsbury under Henry’s banner. In 1404 he appeared in the

King’s Bench to answer for Merston‘s murder, whereupon he produced a

royal pardon and securities for his future good behavior. In 1405 he

was required to find sureties that he would in no way harrass John

Brace of Droitwich, one of Beauchamp’s retainers. In 1411 he took out

letters of protection to join Monmouth‘s retinue at Calais. In 1417

he enlisted in the Earl of Warwick‘s retinue for the second expedition

to France. He was heir in 1419 to his aunt, Joan Hastang, wife

successively of John Salisbury, Knt., Rustin Villeneuve, and Roger de

Swinnerton, Esq., by which he inherited the manor of Chebsey,

Staffordshire. SIR HUMPHREY STAFFORD died overseas 20 Feb. 1419. His

wife, Elizabeth, predeceased him.

11. HUMPHREY STAFFORD, Knt., of Grafton, Bromsgrove, and Kenswick (in

Knightwick), Worcestershire, Chebsey, Staffordshire, and Bourton-on-

Dunsmore, Grandborough, Leamington Hastings, etc., Warwickshire,

Sheriff of Warwickshire, etc., Knight of the Shire for Worcestershire

and Staffordshire, 2nd son, born in 1400. He was heir in 1422 to his

older brother, John Stafford. He married by license dated 2 Jan.

1423/4 ELEANOR AYLESBURY, daughter and co-heiress of Thomas Aylesbury,

Knt., of Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, Aldbury and Tiscot (in

Aldbury), Hertfordshire, by his 2nd wife, Katherine, daughter and

heiress of Laurence de Pabenham, Knt. She was born about 1406 (aged

17 in 1423). Her maritagium included the manor of Blatherwycke,

Northamptonshire. They had five sons, Thomas, Esq., Humphrey, Esq.,

Ralph, Richard, and John, and three daughters, Elizabeth (wife of

Richard Beauchamp, K.B., 2nd Lord Beauchamp of Powick), Anne (wife of

William Berkeley, K.B.), and Joyce (wife of Marmaduke Constable,

Knt.). By an unknown mistress (or mistresses), he also had an

illegitimate son, William, and an illegitimate daughter, Jane (wife of

Guy Wyrley). In 1423 she was co-heiress to her nephew, Hugh

Aylesbury, by which she inherited the manors of Milton Keynes,

Bradwell, and Broughton, Buckinghamshire, and a moiety of Pytchley,

Northamptonshire. In 1438 he sued Robert Catesby for the manor of

Hopsford (in Withybrook), Warwickshire; Catesby quitclaimed the manor

to Sir Humphrey and his heirs in 1441. In June 1448 he and his son,

Richard, were assaulted at Coventry, Warwickshire by Robert Harcourt,

Knt., resulting in Richard’s death. This initiated a continuing feud

with the Harcourts, which resulted in the Staffords raiding Stanton

Harcourt, Oxfordshire in May 1450, burning house and church, and

driving the Harcourts into the church tower. SIR HUMPHREY STAFFORD

was slain by Jack Cade at Sevenoaks, Kent 7 June 1450. He left a

will. In 1453 his widow, Eleanor, and her sister, Isabel, were co-

heirs to their cousin, John Cressy, Knt., by which they inherited the

manors of Dodford, Northamptonshire and Oxhill, Warwickshire. In

Trinity term 1472 his widow, Eleanor, was sued by Edmund Acton

regarding the manor of Dodford, Northamptonshire, and 20 messuages and

various lands in Brockhale, Claxthorp, Flore, Hartestone, and Walton,

Northamptonshire; Eleanor claimed that the manor had previously been

demised to her for life by various trustees, with successive

remainders to her children, Joyce, Thomas, Esq., and Humphrey, Esq.

In Michaelmas term 1472 Eleanor in turn sued John Hathewick regarding

the manor of Dodford, Northamptonshire, together with 28 messuages and

various lands in Brockhale, Claxthorp, Dodford, Flore, Hartestone,

High Hayford, Honnington, Little Creton, Low Hayford, Walton,

Sprotton, Thorneby, and Yelvertoft, Northamptonshire. In June 1472

Eleanor granted to her cousin, John Hathewick and his wife, Agnes, an

annual rent of £10 from the manor of Dodford, Northamptonshire, in

return for a commutation of the said John’s interest in the manor. In

1478 Eleanor presented to the church of Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.

On 15 June 1481 the king awarded the manor of Dodford,

Northamptonshire to dame Eleanor Stafford and her son, Thomas, who in

turn were ordered to pay £200, plus £50 charges, to Edward Wydeville,

Knt., to satisfy his claim to the said manor.

daughters, Audrey and Mary (baptized at Narborough 1608). He was the

executor of the 1608 will of Ellen Butler, widow, of All Saints

17. AUDREY BARLOW, born about 1600–1603 (aged 26 in 1626, aged 32 in

1635). She married by license dated 17 July 1626 WILLIAM ALMY (or

ALMEY), Gentleman, of South Kilworth, Leicestershire, son and heir of

Christopher Almy, of South Kilworth, Leicestershire, by _____,

daughter of _____ Clarke, of Lutterworth, Leicestershire. He was born

about 1600–1601 (aged 26 in 1626, aged 34 in 1635). They had three

sons, Christopher, John, and Job, and two daughters, Katherine (wife

of Bartholomew West and Nicholas Brown) and Annis (wife of John

Greene). In 1625 Edward Clement, clerk, sued William Almey, yeoman,

son and executor of Christopher Almey, deceased, in the Court of

Requests by regarding the parsonage of Lutterworth, Leicestershire and

a bond connected therewith. He and his wife, Audrey, and their two

children, Annis and Christopher, immigrated to New England in 1635 on

the ship, Abigail. They settled initially at Lynn, Massachusetts, but

in 1637, they removed to Sandwich, Massachusetts. In 1638 he was one

of several Sandwich men who were fined “for keeping swine unringed.”

He took the oath of fidelity at Sandwich in 1639. In 1640 he received

8-½ acres in the division of meadow at Sandwich. In 1642 he sold his

dwelling house in Sandwich, Masschusetts to Edmond Freeman the younger

and removed to Portsmouth, Rhode Island. In 1643 he received a grant

of eight acres of planting ground in Portsmouth. In 1644 he was one

of three men “to have land at the wading river” at Portsmouth. In

1650 the Portsmouth town council granted that he should have the land

that lies at “the head of his farm to come to the same height that

Philip Shearman his land now runneth.” He served as Deputy for

Portsmouth to the Rhode Island General Court, 1648, 1650, 1656–1657,

and 1663; assessor for Portsmouth, 1659, 1663; and Portsmouth town

meeting moderator, 1660. In 1652 he sued John Smith, of Warwick,

merchant, claiming that Smith and his partner William Field had

detained the quantity of five anchors and a half of liquors worth £40;

the town of Providence first dismissed the case, but reexamined the

evidence and found for Almy. In 1656 he sold to Richard Bulgar of

Portsmouth a grant of eight acres of land within the common fence. In

1659, as “William Almy of Portsmouth, planter,” he deeded to his son,

John Almy, about 50 acres of land, it being part of his farm in

Portsmouth, Rhode Island “whereon I now dwell.” In 1669 the town of

Portsmouth voted to institute a suit against him for throwing a fence

across a highway which “doth lead to one of the most principal

watering places for cattle in this town.” The town subsequently won

the suit in the court of trials. WILLIAM ALMY left a will dated 28

Feb. 1676/7, proved 23 April 1677. His wife, Audrey, was living 28

Feb. 1676/7.
