About Richard ll Waller, Esq.

Notes for Richard Waller, Esq. and Alice Brudenell from:

Will, In his will, written 7 Oct 1457 (36 Henry VI), Edmond Brudenell gave "To his daughter Alice, his piece of silver plate, with the cover chased with gold; also to his said daughter, wife of Richard Waller, Jun. Esq. of Kent, and to the heirs of their bodies, his manor of Woodmandelse, to be settled on him and her, when Richard Waller the elder settles on the said Richard Waller the younger, and Alice his wife, and the heirs of their bodies, lands of the yearly value of 40 £." [1]

1457 Richard and Alice (Brudenell) Waller, were married by 7 October 1457, the date of the will of Alice’s father, Edmond Brudenell. The language of the will, as abstracted by Arthur Collins, suggests a fairly recent marriage, as Edmund’s manor of Woodmandelse is to be settled upon Richard and Alice when Richard’s father, Richard Waller the elder, settles on them lands of the yearly value of 40 £. [2]

1460 John, the son of Richard and Alice (Brudenell) Waller, was aged 21 and more when Alice died on 12 July, 21 Edward IV [1481]. [3]

1471 Richard Waller died before 1 December. "William Est, yeoman, administrator of the goods ... of Richard Waller, receiver of royal lands in Kent, Surrey, Sussex and Hants., who died intestate ... son and heir of Richard Waller late of Groombridge, Kent, gent." [4]

1481 Alice (Brudenell) Waller died on 12 July. [5]
