It was, no doubt, at the behest of his father, Sir Ralph, that Ralph Radcliffe the younger agreed, in December 1400, to the drawing up of a marriage contract between his infant son and Helen, a daughter of Sir John Massey of Tatton. Because the couple were related, it proved necessary to obtain a papal indult permitting their betrothal, which took place soon afterwards.
