http://minerdescent.com/2011/12/28/sir-thomas-reade-v/ Sir Thomas Reade V Posted on December 28, 2011

WARNING: There is a considerable amount of conflicting information about this couple, especially dates of birth and death, yet many have concluded this is the correct lineage for sons Esdras, William, and Thomas. However, there is very little documentary evidence I have seen. Most seem to rely on LDS records, which may be fraught with error. Mary M. Zashin cites A Record of the Redes of Barton Court, Berkshire, by Compton Reade, which seems to contain fairly reliable information. This source puts Thomas birth at 1606/7, making it impossible for he and Mary Cornwall to be the parents of immigrants William, Esdras and Thomas Reade.

Sir Thomas Reade was buried at Dunstew, December 2oth, 1650. MARY, wife of Sir Thomas Reade, was the fifth daughter and co-heiress of Sir John Brocket, Knight, of Brocket Hall, in the parish of Hatfield, Herts, Lord of the Manor of Symonds Hide (with Almeshoebury), and jure uxons, of Minsden, both in the same county, High Sheriff of Herts, 1566 and 1581, by Helen, his first wife, eldest daughter and co-heiress of S1r Robert Lytton, Knight, of Knebworth, Herts, and of Shrubland Hall, Suffolk, High Sheriff of the counties of Herts and Essex, 1545.t

Their first son was

THOMAS READE, of Appleford, in the parish of Sutton Courtney, Berks, and Ipsden, Oxon, the heir presumptive of Sir Thomas Reade, was born at Barton Court.

The Parish Register of St. Helen's, Abingdon, contains this entry: "Bapt. the 22 daye of February, 1606/7, Thomas, the son of Thomas Reade, Esquire, and of Marye his wife, and was born the second daye of the same monethe, Sir John Morrice, Sir George Tipping, Knights,* and Mris Isabell Brocket gossupes at the Baptism."

He matriculated Gen. Com. at Magd. Coll., Oxford, 2nd July, 1624, aged 17, and married without his father's consentt at Burford, Salop, 8th September, 1624, Mary, daughter of Sir Thomas Cornewall, Knight, Baron of Burford, being six and a half years younger than his wife. Possibly owing to the displeasure of his father he resided continuously with his wife's relatives at Burford Castle.t The Burford Registers show that his children were baptized there. By her he had five sons and four daughters:

  • Sir Compton, First Bart., of Shipton Court;
  • Edward, of Ipsden;
  • Thomas, of Appleford
  • Cornewall;
  • Geoffrey;
  • Anne, who married Thomas Cornewall, Baron of Burford, eldest son and heir of Sir Gilbert Cornewall, Baron of Burford;
  • Beatrice;
  • Catherine, who married Bridstock Harford, M.P.; and
  • Mary, who married John Cornewall, third son of Sir Gilbert Cornewall.

He was buried at St. Mary's, Burford, Salop, 14th December, 1634, in the lifetime of his father, Sir Thomas, who survived until 1650.

MARY, wife of Thomas Reade, was the second daughter of Sir Thomas Cornewall, Knight, Baron of Burford, Salop, called the "Great Baron" (by Anne his wife, daughter of Sir Gilbert Lyttleton, Knight, of Franckley, Worcester), and sister of Sir Gilbert Cornewall, Knight, Baron of Burford, who married Mary's sister-in-law, Elizabeth Reade.

Mary Cornewall was baptized at St. Mary's, Burford, Salop, 16th September,|| 1600, and married there 8th September, 1624 (Parish Registers).

In the will of her mother (nee Lyttleton), proved 1657, she is bequeathed ^20. She is also mentioned in the will of her younger brother, George Cornewall, merchant, at Aleppo.
