  • Notes 
    • In previous posts here on the newsgroup, I presented conclusive
      evidence which showed that Sir Richard Pole (died 1504), husband of the ill famed Margaret Plantagenet, Countess of Salisbury, had married (1st) before 28 June 1483 a certain Alice Langford, widow of John Stradling (died 1471), of Dauntsey, Bremilham, and Marden, Wiltshire, and daughter of Edward Langford, of Bradfield, Berkshire.

      Sir Richard Pole had no known issue by his marriage to Alice Langford. Alice Langford, however, had two known children by her first marriage to John Stradling, namely one son, Edward Stradling, who died without issue 4 November 1488, and one daughter, Anne
      Stradling, born about 1469 (aged 19 in 1488), who married John
      Danvers. Evidence of these two children can be found in Cal. IPMs
      Henry VII, 1 (1898): no. 271. Anne (Stradling) Danvers is ancestral
      to the 17th Century New World immigrant, Jeremy Clarke, of Rhode
      Island.

      ...The most recent biography of Margaret Plantagenet entitled Margaret Pole which was published in 2003. Unfortunately the new ODNB account makes no mention of Margaret Plantagenet being Sir Richard Pole's second wife. Rather, it follows the standard line taken by past historians that Margaret Plantagenet was Sir Richard's only wife.

      One wonders why this should be the case when the evidence of the Pole-Langford marriage was initially presented by F.N. Macnamara in his book, Memorials of the Danvers Family, back in 1895. However, I've found that historians are notoriously bad genealogists. In this case, the author of the ODNB article missed both the Danvers book and the published abstract of the Chancery proceeding which proved the Pole-Langford marriage.

      Be that as it may, I recently found a brief mention of Alice Langford's husband, John Stradling, and their daughter, Anne (Stradling) Danvers, in the book, Llyfr Baglan, published in 1910. This work is based on pedigrees collected by John Williams in the period, 1600-1607. On pages 279, the following information is presented:

      "This Sr Edward [Stradling] had to his brothere John Stradlinge,
      knight, who ma. w'th the heire of dauncie in wilshir and had issue sir
      Edmond, who had issue John and Edmond; John had issue the ladie
      dauers, of whome the davers, hungerfordes, fynes and levets and a
      great p'genye of theme are descended, and of the said Edmond cometh
      (Carnysoyes of Cornwall.").
