About William Hale, Esq., High Sheriff

William Hale was the son of Richard Hale of King's Warden and his first wife Mary Lambert. He was born c. 1551 at Codicote, Hertfordshire, England. He married Rose Bond of Watton-at-Stone, Hertfordshire. Rose was born c. 1555, the daughter of Sir George Bond, Knight. They were the parents of eight children. He died Aug. 1634.

William Hale was named High Sheriff of Hertfordshire in 1621, during the reign of James I.

William was the primary heir of his father, Richard Hale, however, King's Walden was bequeathed to William's brother Richard. Eventually, the property ended up coming into William's estate.

I have seen sources stating a first wife name Martha but cannot find sources for her or for the children she bore. There are several Hale families in Hertfordshire, with similar names, so I am sure there is confusion among families. I have NOT included Martha or her children in this profile overview.

  • Richard Hale, b. 1596, Herefordshire,England
  • William Hale, b. 1597, Hexton, Hertfordshire, England
