About Barbara Hudson (Watson)

From Ian Chadwick's information on her grandson, Henry Hudson (the explorer):

http://www.ianchadwick.com/hudson/hudson_00.htm

His grandfather seems to have died in December, 1555, in London, of a "malignant fever." Six other aldermen died of it that year. A record of his funeral, December 20th, 1555, says the service was held at the Church of the Grey Friars in London. An inscription in that church notes the burial of Rudolph Hudson, husband of Elizabeth, on June 27, 1530. These may have been great grandparents of the explorer.

Henry's widow (the explorer's grandmother), Barbara, married the alderman Sir Richard Champion, who became Sherriff in 1558, then Lord Mayor in 1566. She died in 1568 (Magna Britannica says 1561, but her monument says 1568). She died "without issue" (childless from that marriage). --------------------
