About Alice Readshaw

Note about parents:

While the parents of the Gunpowder Plot Wrights are officially not known, they were known to have been born and raised in the East Riding of Yorkshire, and tradition has it that they were born in Plowland Manor, which is in Welwick, outside of Hull. Given their birth dates, that means they would have to have been the offspring of one of the Wright owners of that manor. Some web trees make them children of Robert Wright, Esq, Sheriff of Yorkshire, and Ursula, his second wife. Robert remarried in around 1555, so presuming Ursula was about 20 at that time, the dates work out pretty well for this hypothesis.
