ROBERT RAYNSFORD (Richard, George, John, William, Henry), Esquire, of Staverton, co. Northampton, was baptized at Epping, cc. Essex, 7 February 1566/7 and died at Staverton, 15 April 1629.
He was twice married according to the pedigrees, first to GEORGINA POPE, daughter of John Pope, Esq., of Wroxton, Co. Oxen, by his wife Elizabeth Brockett (Oxfordshire Visitations, 15 1-2). Georgina was baptized at Wroxton, 3 January 1563/4 (letter from R. E. L. Walker, incumbent, who states her marriage is not recorded there nor are there any Raynsford entries in this period).
Robert married second at Croydon, 14 December 1602 Mary KIRTON (Collectanea Topographica et Genealogica 4 11837]: 93; confirmed by letter of A. 0. Meakin, Chief Librarian of the Central Library, Croydon, which holds transcripts of the parish registers). The Kirton pedigree presented by Baker shows she was daughter of Thomas Kirton of Thorpe Mandeville, cc. Northampton, whose marriage to Marie Sadler is recorded in the London parish of St. Andrew Undershaft on 19 February 1559/60 (microfilm of parish register, no. MS 4107 at Guild-hail Library, London). Mary Kirton was a granddaughter of two Aldermen of London, Stephen Kirton and John Sadler (The Aldermen of London. [London, 1913], 2:30, 110, 345), great-granddaughter of a Sheriff of the city, Nicholas Leveson, and was both niece and great-niece of Lord Mayors: Sir Nicholas Woodruff and Sir William Hewett. Her baptism is not among those of children recorded to her parents at St. Andrew Undershaft between 1560 and 1567 or at Thorpe Mandeville between 1573 and 1577, but the. pedigrees show she was mother of Robert s children as listed below, and she was alive on 20 April 1634 when named in the will of her son John Raynsford as "my loving mother Mary Raynsford, widow" (PCC 105 Seager).
Robert Raynsford of Staverton, Esquire, made his will 10 October 1628 and it was proved by his son John 1 May 1629 (PCC 39 Ridley). To wife Mary he left life interest in the Staverton property with reversion at death to eldest son John, a half-part of his tithes and duties in the County of Warwick to be held in common with eldest son John, and various movables. Second son Richard was left £40 yearly during the life of his mother, to be paid by brother John, and third son Edward was to have

Edward Raynsford of Boston 237

£100 when twenty-one. A legacy of £300 was left to youngest daughter Anne, £200 to be paid when she was twenty-one and the remaining £100 when she was twenty-two. To "ungratious daughter Jane Awbery" he left 3 shillings, 2 pence, to be paid "within three months, on demand," and he named son John as executor.

Richard RAINSFORD [Parents] 1-2763 was born about 1557 in Gyles, Epping, Essex, England, United Kingdom. He died on 14 Feb 1603. Richard married (MRIN:1547) Anne MEADE-2764.

5. Richard RAYNSFORD (George, John, William, Henry), of Epping, cc. Essex, where he was buried 17 February 1603/4 (microfilm of parish register transcript at Essex Record Office, no. hR 57). Philip Morant s History and Antiquities of the County of Essex (1767), 2:50 says the manor of Cues in Epping passed to Antony Browne in 1566, then was held by Richard Raynsford, Esq., "who dyed 14 Feb. 1603." His inquisition post mortem, held at Stratford, 3 July 1604, states he died 14 February 1604 holding the Manor of Gilles, lands at Epping Bury and Epping [faded wordJ in cc. Essex, lands at Sabredyworth, and in the manors of Pisho Bury, [faded wordj Bury, and Shinglehall, co. Herts., and that his son and heir was Robert Rayns ford, more than twenty-one (PRO 665/59). The Victoria County History of Essex, 4:295, notes that Richard Rainsford of Epping, who died in 1604, left £5 to found a charity in the parish of North Weald Bassett, the income to be applied for relief of the poor.

He was twice married, first to ANNE MEADE, the only wife mentioned in the pedigrees, and second at St. Gregory-by-St. Paul, London, 6 July 1585, as "Richard Rainfford of Epping in Essex, gent.," to ELIZABETH REVELL (parish register, no. MS 10,231 at Guildhall Library, London). The first marriage is probably that marriage recorded at North Weald Bassett on 8 November 1559 between Richard Raynsford and Anne God-den [sic 1. Anne is called a daughter of Thomas Meade of Berdon, cc. Essex, in the pedigrees, but her father has not yet been sufficiently identified among several of the name. The will of Joan Mead of Berden, widow, dated 28 August 1557 (Essex Record Office no. B/ABa 1/103 Reel 1, xerox copy provided by Archivist) names sons John, Edward, Thomas and Richard Mead, son Richard Bennett, mentions unnamed wives of all sons, names daughters Joan, wife of Thomas Pelham; Elizabeth Wright, and Agnes Goddaye, and leaves unnamed children of

Edward Raynsford of Boston    235

Agnes cash legacies at their day of marriage. The will of Edward Mead of
Berdon, dated 10 September 1577 and proved 19 November following
(PCC 44 Daughtry) names his ten children, brothers Thomas and
Richard Mead, sister Jane Pelham but not sister Agnes/Anne, who was
perhaps then dead.

On 4 December 1558 Robert Gocidaye of Sabrythesworth, alias Groves, cc. Hertfordshire, was licensed to alienate the same and land in Sherying, cc. Essex, to his son Thomas Goddaye, and on 12 June 1560 Thomas Gooddaye and Joan his wife of Sabrigeworth, co. Hertfordshire, were licensed to alienate lands in Shering, cc. Essex (Calendar of Patent Rolls: Elizabeth I, 10:136, 363). The Hertfordshire "Feet of Fine," Trinity Term 8 Elizabeth 11566 (The Herts Genealogist & Antiquary 1 [18951: 345) shows "Three messuages and lands in Sabrygeworth, The. Goddaye & Benedict Averyll; Rich. Raynsforde & Agnes his wife." Much later, at Hilary Term 34 Elizabeth I, 1591/2, there was an action regarding messuage and lands in North Mymmes, Herts., between Henry Knowlys, gent., vs. Rich. Raynesford, gent., Elizabeth his wife, and Elizabeth Marvyn, widow (ibid., 3 [1898]: 97).

George Baker, History of Northamptonshire (1822-1830), 1:348, states that in 1602 Richard Symes alienated his manor of Drayton in Northamptonshire to Richard Raynsford, Esq., and Robert his son and heir apparent in fee, "which Robert, in 6 iac. (1608) his father being then dead," conveyed to Richard Farmer, Gent., and Edward Farmer his second son.

The will of Richard Raynsford of Epping, Gentleman, was made 22 August 1599 and proved 5 June 1604 (PCC 59 Ha.rte). By it he left wife Elizabeth various personal and household goods she was to forfeit if she remarried. He left £500 apiece to "my sonnes two daughters Marye and Jane" when they married or at age twenty-one; £25 to be paid within three years to "Phillippa Marshe the child of my late daughter deceased," and the balance of his estate to son Robert Raynsford who was also nominated executor. His "loving nephew Richard Bugge, gentleman, and my loving brother-in-law Richard Meade, yeoman" were to be supervisors and each was to receive a gold ring worth forty shillings when three months. The will was witnessed by John Mules, Edward Stauemont and Roger Numan.
