Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Matilda (daughter of John Oldcastle and Katherine ferch Richard ab Ieuan); died between 8 Oct 1457 and 4 Nov 1457 in Ash-juxta-Sandwich, Kent, England; was buried in St. Nicholas, Ash-juxta-Sandwich, Kent, England.

    Notes:

    Richardson's Royal Ancestry (volume 4, page 268) calls her "Katherine." He may be right, but we can't discern his basis for doing so.

    The History of Parliament entry for her father-in-law Richard Clitheroe (d. 1420) says that his only son, Roger, married Joan, Lady Cobham's "stepdaughter, Maud Oldcastle", i.e., the daughter of Lady Cobham's husband John Oldcastle by his earlier wife. The History of Parliament entry for her father John Oldcastle says that his daughter Maud "married Roger, son of Richard Clitheroe I of Ash-next-Sandwich, Kent."

    The 7 Mar 1455 will of Roger Clyderow, esq., abstracted by Arthur Hussey in "Ash next Sandwich Wills", Archaeologia Cantiana 34, 1920, pages 58-59, calls his wife "Matilda." The abstract of her own will, dated 8 Oct 1457, in which she calls herself "Matilda, relict of Roger Clyderow", appears on pages 59-60 of the same article.

    Matilda married Roger Clitheroe before Aug 1414. Roger (son of Richard Clitheroe and Alice) was born in in of Ash-juxta-Sandwich, Kent, England; died between 7 Mar 1455 and 8 Oct 1457 in Ash-juxta-Sandwich, Kent, England; was buried in St. Nicholas, Ash-juxta-Sandwich, Kent, England.

    The place of his execution is the intersection of Oxford Street, New Oxford Street, Tottenham Court Road, and Charing Cross Road. Centre Point rises from the northwest corner of this intersection.

    From Wikipedia:

    Sir John Oldcastle (died 14 December 1417) was an English Lollard leader. Being a friend of Henry V, he long escaped prosecution for heresy. When convicted, he escaped from the Tower of London and then led a rebellion against the King. Eventually, he was captured and executed in London. He formed the basis for William Shakespeare's character John Falstaff, who was originally called John Oldcastle.

    The detailed account of him in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography can be read here. His History of Parliament entry is here. A casual account of him is here.
