    Notes:

    Also spelled Clederowe, Cliderawe, Clytherowe. Sheriff of Kent in 1403 and 1418.

    He may have been a son of, and was certainly related to, Roger de Cliderow, who lived at Little Betshanger, Kent, in the 1300s. From Villare cantianum, or, Kent surveyed and illustrated, etc., by Thomas Philipott (1659): "Little Betshanger was a Seat relating to the Family of Cliderow, which in elder Times was of eminent Account in this Track [...] Roger de Cliderow flourished here in the Reign of Edward the second, and Edward the third, and as appears by Seals affixed to old Evidences, which commence from the last Kings Reign, bore for his Coat Armour upon a Cheveron between three Eagles five Annulets, his Successor Richard Cliderow was Sheriff of Kent the fourth and most part of the fifth year of Henry the fourth; he was constituted soon after Admiral of the Seas, from the Thames mouth along the Saxon Shore to the West; for in those Times the Admiralty was divided sometimes into three, and most commonly into two Divisions, one beginning at the Thames mouth was Admiral of the Northern Seas, the second was Admiral from the Thames mouth Westward, and the third had the command of the Irish Seas; but in this man's Time King Henry the fourth, in the eighth year of his Reign, reduced it under one Person, and granted it with more ample and wide Authority under his Brother John Beauford Earl of Somerset." Richard Clitheroe was indeed sheriff of Kent in the fourth and fifth years of Henry IV, and just a few years later was Admiral of the Southern and Western Fleets.

    Richard married Alice before 1400. Alice died about 1417; was buried in Charterhouse, Smithfield, London, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 3.  Alice died about 1417; was buried in Charterhouse, Smithfield, London, England.

    Notes:

    She may have been the widow of a man named Mountford, of Hackforth in Yorkshire and Riby in Lincolnshire.
