  • CAPTAIN THOMAS STUCLEY was the third son of Sir Hugh Stucley (died Jan. 6, 1560), of Affton, on the river Taw, near Ilfracomb, Devonshire, by his wife Jane, daughter of Sir Lewis Pollard on of the Judges of the Common Pleas. Prince, in his Worthies of Devon, tells us that the Judge was born about 1465 and died about 1540, and had by his wife, Elizabeth Hext, two-and-twenty children, eleven sons and eleven daughters; and that the daughters were all married 'to the most potent families in the county, most of them knights, as the first to Sir Hugh Stucley, the second to Sir Hugh Courtenay of powderham, the third to Sir Hugh Pawlet of Stamford Peverel, the fourth to Sir John Crocker of Lineham, &c. .... etc.
  • It appears that Sir Lewis Pollard died, not in 1540, but on the 21st of October, 1526. That his children, who lived to be recorded in the Visitations, were eleven in all; five sons-- Hugh, Richard, John, Robert, and Anthony; and six daughters-- Grace, Elizabeth, Jane, Agnes, Thomasin, and Philippa. I cannot discover any Hugh
  • Pg.2
  • Courtenay of Powderham, or any intermarriage of the Courenays and Pollards in the generation in question. But Elizabeth, the second daughter, was married in succession to Sir John Croker and Sir Hugh Trevanion, of Carey-hayes, in Cornwall. Grace, the eldest daughter, does not appear to have been married at all. Possibly she was the nun of Canon Leigh, called in religion Margaret, to whom her father, alone of his daughter, left a legacy in his will.
  • The father of Sir Hugh Stucley was Sir Thomas Stucley (died Jn. 30, 1543), a Knight of the body to King Henry VIII., in 1516, and whose name is found on the sheriff roll for Somerset and Dorset .... etc. His wife was Anne, the daughter and heir of Sir Thomas Wood of Bingley. .... etc.
  • In Benolt's Visitation of Devon, Ao 22 of Henry VIII., the family name of the Stucleys of Affton is spelt Steretchley, and that of the Stucleys of Trent, Somerset (who were identically the same persons), Strevokley. There is also another family name, Stratcheley of Stratchley, which seems to have been originally the same. .... etc.

  • Thomas Stukley (c. 1520 – 4 August 1578) (alias Stukeley, Stuckley, etc.) was an English mercenary who fought in France, Ireland, and at the Battle of Lepanto (1571) and was killed at the Battle of Alcazar (1578). It was alleged that he was an illegitimate son of King Henry VIII.[2] He was a Roman Catholic recusant and a rebel against the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I.
  • Stukley was the third son of Sir Hugh Stukley (1496-1559) of Affeton, in the parish of West Worlington in Devon, head of an ancient gentry family, a Knight of the Body to King Henry VIII and Sheriff of Devon in 1545.[3] His mother was Jane Pollard, a daughter of Sir Lewis Pollard (c.1465-1526), of Kings Nympton, Devon, Justice of the Common Pleas, by his wife Anne Hext.[4]
  • .... etc.
  • He returned to England in December 1554 in the train of Emmanuel Philibert, Duke of Savoy, after obtaining an amnesty against his creditors' suits, possibly thanks to the Duke of Suffolk. His credit temporarily improved upon his marriage to an heiress, Anne Curtis, but he was reputed to squander £100 a day and to have sold the blocks of tin with which his father-in-law had paved the yard of his London house. Within a few months, a warrant for his arrest was issued on a charge of uttering false money and he fled abroad again, deserting his wife, to enter the service of the duke of Savoy. He then fought on the victorious side at the Battle of St. Quentin in 1557.
  • .... etc.
  • ....On landing in Morocco, Stukley objected to marching straight away against a vast force of Moors and scorned the Portuguese king's troops and tactics.[citation needed] He fought with courage on 4 August 1578 at the Battle of Alcácer Quibir, commanding the centre, but was killed early in the day after a cannonball cut off his legs. Tradition asserted that he was murdered by his Italian soldiers after the Portuguese had been defeated.[citation needed]
  • Stukley's first wife died in 1564; in 1566 he married Elizabeth Peppard, a wealthy Irish widow. He also had a brief affair with Hannah Archibald when he was 15 which resulted in an illegitimate child.
