    From the History of Parliament:

    As a younger son, Henry Brydges appears to have had to make his own way in the world. The general pardon which he received on 15 May 1509 throws some light on his early life: styling him esquire or merchant, it describes him as of Newbury in Berkshire, Faulstone, Ludgershall and Salisbury in Wiltshire, Poole in Dorset, and finally London. Such locations make it all but certain that he dealt in cloth: Newbury in particular was an important centre in the manufacture of kerseys. Here Brydges had as a contemporary the famous clothier whose son and namesake John Winchcombe alias Smallwood, was to witness Brydges' will in 1538. Like the clothier, Brydges appears to have furthered his fortunes by marrying a local widow, for Margery Bedford was doubtless the relict of one or other of two Newbury residents, John and Richard Bedford, whose wills were proved in 1494, and of whom at least one was a 'clothmaker'. John Bedford of Poole, who in 1509 bequeathed £10 apiece to his mother Margery Bedford and to Henry Brydges, was probably Brydges' stepson. [...]

    Between 1533 and 1538 Sir William Gifford, whose son John had married Brydges' daughter Joan, brought a suit against Brydges in Chancery; Gifford had lost his copy of the indentures containing the marriage settlement and Brydges refused to let him see his copy. Brydges' will of 5 Dec. 1538 was proved on the following 28 Jan. His son Richard was residuary legatee and executor.

    Henry married Margery about 1500. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    The History of Parliament calls her "wid. of one Bedford of Newbury." Royal Ancestry calls her "said to be daughter of John Hungerford, Esq."
