Walter Rudston is mentioned as living at Rogerthorpe in 1610 : There is a view that Walter never lived anywhere other than his family seat at Hayton. It could have been William, son of Walter and younger brother of Sir Walter, who lived there for a time, but that would not have been until the late 1620s.
After the death of his first (Catholic) wife, in 1613 Walter remarried in 1615 Elizabeth Saltonstall (of Holy Trinity, Hull) : the marriage took place at North Newbald, whose vicar at the time was Thomas Sugden, later the Vicar of Hayton, "a noted Puritan". Why Richard Sugden, then Vicar at Hayton, did not marry them is unclear.
Samuel Saltonstall (d 1612) married three wives: (1) Anne Ramsden, daughter of John Ramsden,Esq., ancestor of the Baronets Ramsden of Longley,near Huddersfield; (2) Elizabeth,daughter of Thomas Ogden and (3) Elizabeth Armine, widow of Hugh Armine, mayor of Hull.
