IThe IGI shows the marriage of Richard Huddleston and Isabel Williams to be 1534 and that Richard Huddleston died after 1576. It shows Isabel Williams' birth to be about 1515 and her father was John Williams. Richard Huddleston, esquire of Thame who married Isabel Wenman (her maiden name was Williams). However, English Tudor History shows differently. Isabella WILLIAMS Born: 1522, Rycote, Oxfordshire, England Died: 1587, Carswell, Berkshire, England Father: John WILLIAMS (1º B. Williams of Thame) Mother: Elizabeth BLEDLOW Married: Richard WENMAN (son of Thomas Wenman and Ursula Giffard) Children: 1. Thomas WENMAN (Sir) (b. ABT 1550 - d. 22 Jul 1577) (m. Jane West) 2. Henry WENMAN 3. Francis WENMAN (We see him as Francis Weyneman in House of Commons Records and in 'Records of the Virginia Company') 4. Elizabeth WENMAN 5. Margaret WENMAN 6. Frances WENMAN. We notice that Thomas Wenman married Jane West.
Jane WEST Born: 1558 Died: 1606, Norfolk, England Notes: Sir Ralph Shelton was fourth husband of Jane West. She was about two years older than Sir Ralph. Father: William WEST (1º B. De La Warr) Mother: Elizabeth STRANGE (B. De La Warr) Jane West's brother family is interesting, too. Thomas WEST (2° B. De La Warr) Born: ABT 1556, Wherwell, Hampshire, England Died: ABT 24 Mar 1602 Father: William WEST (1º B. De La Warr) Mother: Elizabeth STRANGE (B. De La Warr) Married: Anne KNOLLYS (B. De La Warr) 19 Nov 1571, Wherwell, Hampshire, England Children: 1. Walsingham WEST 2. Anne WEST 3. Helena WEST 4. Catherine WEST 5. Leticce WEST 6. Elizabeth WEST 7. Robert WEST 8. Thomas WEST (3º B. De La Warr) 9. Penelope WEST 10. Francis WEST (Gov. of Virginia) 11. John WEST (Gov. of Virginia) (This helps to explain why William Huddleston, servant of Jamestown gets help later on.) 12. Nathaniel WEST (Lt. Col.)
John Williams was buried with great pomp at Thame on 15 Nov 1559, and his tomb remains in the church. His sons having predeceased him, the barony became extinct and the heirs to his property were his sons-in-law Henry Norreys and Richard Wenman. To his wife Williams left several manors, his house at Elsingspital and cups given by the Queen, the Duchess of Norfolk and Francis Russell, 2nd Earl of Bedford, at the christening of one of her children; she later married in turn William Drury and James Croft. To Bedford he left his personal armour and to Sir Robert Dudley a black mare called ‘Maud Mullford which mare I take to be the best mare in England’. Several rectories were assigned for the endowment of a free school at Thame and provision was also made for the restoration of the footway between Oxford and Botley and the support of Botley road upon stone arches: a bill for the amendment of causeways and highways had been committed to Mr. Williams, either Sir John or Thomas Williams, a Member for Oxford, in the Parliament of Oct 1553. The executors included Sir Walter Mildmay and the supervisors the Earl of Bedford and Sir William Cecil. Sources: Elton, Tudor Revolution in Government C. A. J. Skeel, Council in the Marches of Wales. The House of Commons clears this up by showing Isabel Williams had a husband by the name of Richard Weyneman before she married Richard Huddleston, esquire of Thame.
House of Commons Journal Volume 1 10 March 1576 (This would be nine years before Captain John Huddleston was born) Lady Weyneman, &c. Mr. Doctor Barcley and Mr. Powle do bring from the Lords the Bill touching the Confirmation of an Abitrament to be made between Richard Huddlestone Esquire, and Dame Izabell Weyneman his wife, on the One Part; and Francis Weyneman Gentlemen of the other Part; are sent up to the Lords by Mr. Secretary Smythe and others.

Captain John Huddleston's mother, Isabel Williams Weyneman (Wenman) died the year he was born and his father, 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. Richard Huddleston "Her Maj, Treasurer of War" in 1586, died three years later.
If you take the IGI information with the Tudor history it seems like Richard Huddleston married her before Richard Wenman and after Richard Weyneman. Richard Weyneman and Richard Wenman seem to be the same person.
