  • Notes 
    • Educated at Lincoln College, Oxford 1584, BA 1588. Middle Temple 1589. Member of Parliament for Andover in 1589.

      From the History of Parliament:

      Reade was a lawyer, granted chambers in the Middle Temple soon after his admission, which he did not relinquish until 1626, three years after his father's death. When he was called on as a reader in 1616 he preferred to pay a fine of £10 for non-performance. Between 1597 and 1599 he was constantly fined for being out of commons during readings; in 1604 his chamber was assigned to another member of the society, as he had ceased to live in it, but this order was later revoked.

      Reade return for Andover in 1589 was probably obtained through the patronage of the Sandys family. Lord Sandys of The Vyne had influence in the borough, and Edwin Sandys I (Member for Andover in the previous Parliament, and son of the Miles Sandys who had used his influence to gain Reade a place at the Middle Temple), had married Lord Sandys' daughter.

      Reade was an overseer of his father-in-law's will in 1606, and when Sir Thomas Windebank's eldest son Francis entered the Middle Temple in 1603 he was one of the sureties for his good conduct. Sir Thomas purchased lands in Berkshire and Wiltshire in conjunction with Reade, and at his death Anne and her husband inherited a house at St. Martin-in-the-Fields.

      On his father's death Reade did not succeed to the family property, receiving only an annuity of £60, though if he were forced to vacate the parsonage house in Faccombe, in which he was then living, either before or within a year of the testator's death, he was to be allowed half of the manor house at Faccombe for a year, provided he did not contest the will. Reade died in 1647, being buried in Faccombe church, where his son Francis erected a monument to him.
