William Huddleston, third son of Sir John Huddleston of Millom and Mary Fenwick, married Lady Isabel Neville youngest daughter of Marquess Montague (killed at the battle of Barnet 1471) He lived most of his life, when not fighting in the Wars of the Roses, in Cumberland. He and Isabel had two sons: John born c.1488 d.1530 who eventually inherited Sawston, Cambs. and Richard born. c.1490. William died c.1508, and his widow married 2ndly, Ralph Dacre of Carlisle, and 3rdly. Sir William Smythe/Smith of Elford, by 1511, and other manors in Staffordshire. Isabel d.1516 and is buried at Elford, Staffs. with her last husband. Richard (born c. 1490) married Margery Smythe, his stepsister, who inherited Elford, where apparently they had two daughters, Lucy (born 1540 IGI) who married John Brookes) and possibly Elizabeth who married Bowes. Also a son, Richard who was born at Elford c. 1514 (IGI). It is possible that Lucy was the daughter of this Richard, as there is too long a time gap between the dates. However, Richard (of Elford) married Isabel Williams daughter of John Lord Williams of Thame. So far I have been unable to trace any children of this marriage, and Isabel Williams married 2ndly Sir Richard Wensman (?)of Witney. Be that as it may, I found in the PCC Richard Huddleston Esq. of Thame Park, Oxon, the administration given to Henry Norris Kt. Lord, of Rycote Park, Oxon (near Thame) in 1590 and again 1598. I also found mention of Richard Huddleston "Her Maj, Treasurer of War" in 1586. He could and indeed probably is, the same as Richard Huddleston of Thame. I have not followed up any descendants, but surely there must have been some? Oxfordshire records, Staffordshire records and also Essex would be useful as Radcliffe, was in Essex.
