Extracted by Combs Researcher Peter Archdale from "Memoirs of the Archdales:"

"Richard ARCHDALE, the only son, was a merchant vintner in Dowgate Street, London, having connection with Bordeaux and Lisbon. He is mentioned in the will (April 17th 1603) of his kinsman Francis BARKER, who was also a London vintner.

On June 22nd 1604, he purchased the Manor of Loakes, or Lokes, at High Wycombe, Bucks, from John RAUNCE; and on August 28th 1628 the same John RAUNCE conveyed to Richard ARCHDALE the Manors of Temple Wycombe, and Windsor or Chapel Fee.*

In 1631, Richard inherited certain "household stuff" at Whateley, Whateley [Wheatley], Oxfordshire, from Abraham ARCHDALE, his cousin-german (double first cousin).

In 1636, a petition was addresses to Archbishop LAUD by the Mayor and townsmen of Chipping Wycombe, concerning the endowment of the parish church. The petition bears twenty signatures, the 17th and 18th being "Ric. ARCHDEDALE" and "Edm. WALLER", the poet.**"
