About Richard Hale of King's Walden

RICHARD HALE, was the eldest son of Thomas Hale, of Codicote, Herts, and his wife Anne Mitchel. Richard was a citizen of London and a grocer by trade. He married first, in c.1550, Mary Lambert, an heiress and they had a son, William who became his heir. He married second, Dyonisia Giffard of Somerset, and they had two documented sons, Richard and Robert and a possible third son, John. Richard's date of birth is not verified but is estimated to be c. 1536. He lived to an advanced age, dying in 1621.

Richard Hale purchased the estate of King's Walden, Hertfordshire from William Lord Burgh c. 1576. He died in 1621, leaving the property to his second son Richard and his heirs. The estate, however, came eventually to William, the eldest son. The property remained in the Hale family until 1884. There are monuments in the King's Walden church to members of the Hale family.

Richard Hale did not purchase King's Walden until 1576. Be cautious about sources that have his siblings or his children born at King's Walden prior to 1576.
