  • 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

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • Sir Lewis Pollard (c. 1465–1526) of King's Nympton, Devon, .... etc.
  • He married Agnes Hext, daughter of Thomas Hext, a prominent lawyer[16] of Kingston (in the parish of Staverton, near Totnes), by his wife Florence Bonville. Westcote stated her to be the heiress of Dunisford (or Donesford).[17] By her he had eleven sons and eleven daughters, including:
  • The Heralds' Visitations of Devon[18] lists the following sons of Sir Lewis Pollard:
    • Sir Hugh Pollard, eldest son and heir, great-grandfather of Sir Lewis Pollard, 1st Baronet of King's Nympton. He was Recorder of Barnstaple in 1545[19] Through the influence of his brother Richard he obtained the wardship of Richard Bury (1516–1543), son and heir of John Bury (d.1533) of Colleton, Chulmleigh, whom he married to his daughter Elizabeth Pollard. Richard Pollard obtained as his own wife John Bury's daughter Elizabeth, as promised him in her father's will.[20]
    • Sir Richard Pollard (1505–1542), 2nd son, MP for Taunton (1536) and Devon (1539, 1542), of Putney, Surrey. King's Remembrancer of the Exchequer and a law reporter[21] He was an assistant of Thomas Cromwell in administering the surrender of religious houses following the Dissolution of the monasteries, and was employed particularly as a surveyor who visited the premises and made a detailed valuation of the house's assets and income.[22] In 1537 he was granted by King Henry VIII the manor of Combe Martin in Devon[23] and in 1540 Forde Abbey.
    • John Pollard, 3rd son,[24] Archdeacon of Wiltshire, Archdeacon of Cornwall, Archdeacon of Barnstaple (1544–1554),[25] Archdeacon of Totnes and Canon of Exeter Cathedral. His full biography is included in Hooker's Synopsis.
    • Robert Pollard (d.1576), 4th son, purchased from the crown the manor of Knowstone,[26] where he was buried on 26 September 1576. He married Anne (or Agnes) Chichester (d.1541), daughter of Richard Chichester of Hall, Bishop's Tawton by his wife Thomasine de Hall (d.1502), heiress of Hall.[27]
    • Anthony Pollard, 5th son.
    • Sir George Pollard, 6th son, knighted at Boulogne for his role in the defence of that English outpost.[28]
  • The Heralds' Visitations of Devon[29] names five daughters of Sir Lewis Pollard:
    • Anne Pollard, wife of Humphrey Moore (d.1537) of Moorehays in the parish of Burlescombe, in the church of which exists his monument.[30]
    • Jane Pollard,[31] wife of Sir Hugh Stukley (d.1559) of Affeton Castle and mother of the mercenary Thomas Stukley. A heraldic stained-glass roundel survives in the south window of the Pollard Chapel in the south aisle of King's Nympton Church showing the arms of Stucley impaling Pollard, with quarterings of each family. The arms are as follows: baron, quarterly 1st azure, three pears pendant or (Stucley); 2nd Argent a chevron engrailed between three fleurs-de-lis sable (de Affeton[32]); 3rd Argent a chevron gules between three roses of the second seeded or (Wood?); 4th Gules, three lions rampant or; femme quarterly 1st & 4th Argent, a chevron sable between three mullets gules pierced or (Pollard of Horwood); 2nd & 3rd Argent, a chevron sable between three escallops gules (Pollard of King's Nympton)

  • PRIDEAUX, John (by 1520-58), of Upton Pyne, Devon and the Inner Temple, London.
  • b. by 1520, 1st s. of Thomas Prideaux of Ashburton, Devon by Joan. educ. I. Temple, adm. 15 Nov. 1537. m. by 1549, Mary, da. of Sir Hugh Stukeley of Trent, Som., 3s. 3da. suc. fa. 22 Jan. 1548.2
  • Offices Held
    • Bencher, I. Temple 1550, Summer reader 1551, Lent 1552, Autumn 1555.
    • Commr. chantries, Devon 1546, 1548, relief 1550; counsel to Exeter 20 Oct. 1548; j.p.q. Devon 1554; serjeant-at-law 1555; King and Queen’s serjeant-at-law 23 Jan. 1558.3
  • John Prideaux the serjeant had a number of contemporary namesakes but it was certainly he who was knight of the shire for Devon in 1554. Whether he also sat for Plymouth in the Parliament of 1547 is less clear: it is possible that he was the John Prideaux assessed towards a subsidy at Plymouth during 1543-4 on goods worth 20s., but although the serjeant was related to the influential Edgecombes he is not known to have had a more personal link with the town. The Roger Prideaux who sat in this Parliament for Totnes was doubtless related to him: it is not clear which of them was the ‘Mr. Prideaux’ to whom a bill for decayed houses was committed after its first reading on 30 Jan. 1550, but John Prideaux was presumably the ‘Mr. Pridioke skilled in the law’ consulted at the Temple by the advisers of the 16th Earl of Oxford over the measure which became the Act for frustrating assurances to the Duke of Somerset made by the earl (5 and 6 Edw. VI, no. 35).4
  • With Exeter, Prideaux did have a close connexion: in 1548 as ‘John Prideaux of Bramford Pyne’ he was granted an annual fee of 20s. for his counsel. He progressed steadily at his inn and became involved in local administration in Devon. He was caught up in an affair of greater moment when in January 1554 he and Sir Thomas Denys, the sheriff, got wind of the plot to raise Exeter against the Spanish marriage: the declaration which he made on 24 Jan. is the chief source of information on the episode. It can hardly be a coincidence that two months later he was elected, for the only time in his career, one of the knights of the shire for Devon: his friend Denys was doubtless of help to him as sheriff, but the court may well have intervened on behalf of so trusty a watchdog. Twelve months later he was made a serjeant, and with his promotion to King and Queen’s serjeant in January 1558 he was clearly heading for the bench before his death on the following 29 Sept. A knell was rung for him at Ashburton, whose churchwardens he had advised in legal matters for many years.5
  • Prideaux had added considerably to his patrimony. The chantry lands in Herefordshire worth £55 a year which he and Roger Hereford had bought in 1549 he divided with Hereford, and a year before his death he and his wife paid nearly £1,200 for the reversion of a number of Devon manors held by the Duchess of Suffolk for life. Not only did he buy property himself but he also advised others about their land transactions. Prideaux left no will and administration was first granted to Thomas Stukeley, his brother-in-law, who was also granted the wardship of his son and heir Thomas. Thomas Prideaux had licence to enter on the lands on 17 May 1571 and 12 months later shared administration of the goods with a sister.6

  • 'Stukeley1'
  • It appears to us that the name of this family varied more than most. Nevertheless, BP1934 uses "Stucley" throughout whilst Vivian mainly uses Stewkley for the early generations but moves to "Stucley" for the later generations of most of its branches. When we first prepared this page we used "Stukeley" as that was probably the most common version used in references to the family from elsewhere. This page was reviewed in July 2012 using Vivian. At that time we considered renaming the page "Stucley1" but decided to retain it as above.
