Oliver’s great-great-grandfather, Morgan Williams, had married Thomas Cromwell’s sister Katherine in 1497. Their three sons, Richard, another Richard and Walter, began the practice of calling themselves Cromwell in place of their true surname of Williams, in honour of their famous maternal uncle. Most of their descendants, in turn, used the surname Cromwell, or occasionally Williams-alias-Cromwell. After the Restoration, when it may have been unwise to be seen to have close links with Oliver Cromwell, some members of the family reverted for a time to calling themselves Williams, though generally just as a temporary measure.

The elder of the two Richards who were the sons of Morgan Williams and Katherine Cromwell was later knighted
