About Roger Lane


  • While some people would like to believe that Roger Lane was a son of Sir Ralph Lane and Maud Parr, there is absolutely no evidence for this. In fact, the evidence suggests otherwise: Ralph Lane was from Orlingbury, Northamptonshire, and Maud Parr was from Kendal, Westmorland, while Roger Lane spent his entire life in Herefordshire. The pedigree of Maud Parr is well known, since she was a cousin of Catherine Parr, Henry VIII's last wife. There is no evidence to suggest she bore a son named Roger in Herefordshire. We do not know who Roger Lane's parents are. I found a baptismal record for a Roger Lane in Madley, Herefordshire, in 1572; his parents were Walter & Aloicia. This could be our Roger Lane, although the date is a bit late, and Roger Lane seems to have been a common name at the time. - comment by Keith Riggle, 25 Feb 2012.
  • Ralph Lane (1509-?) married Maud Parr (1507-59) in 1523. Their only three sons were Robert, Ralph and William. Roger born Hereford 1569 was categorically not their son.
  • Sir Ralph Lane, Knt., of Orlingbury, and of Hogshaw, Bucks, j.u.; his will dated 26 Sept., 1540, pd. 17 Nov. following, to be bd. at Hogshaw, having had, with 3 sons, 7 daus.
