    History RICHARD DE WYDEVILL, born about 1310, was the first member of the Wydevill family of Grafton (Regis), Northants, to achieve more than local prominence. He was in possession of the family estates in 1345. He was joint collector of that county's share in the 30,000 sacks of wool granted to the King as a subsidy in 1347; in 1354, a commissioner to enforce the Statute of Labourers, and of oyer and terminer, in Northants, Bucks and Beds, 1358-62; 1360-62, acting Sheriff, 1362-68 and 1370-71 High Sheriff, of Northants; 1361-70, escheator in Northants; Knight of the shire in seven parliaments between 1362 and 1377; surveyor of the works at Moorend castle (Potterspury) in 1363 and later.
    He married, firstly, ----, and, secondly, Elizabeth, daughter of Sir John LYONS of Warkworth, heir of her brother John LYONS and widow of Sir Nicholas CHETWODE. He appears to have been living in July 1378. [Complete Peerage XI:15-6, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Note: CP does not say by which wife his son John was born. Richard Borthwick, in a post to SGM, states that CP has the son John by the 1st wife (who is not known), but I believe that Richard is misreading CP. See the CP entry in my notes for the son John: CP's statement "Presumably by his first marriage he acquired lands and interests in Beds and Bucks." refers to John's 1st marriage, not to the identification of his mother.
    ---------- Sheriff of Kent in 1334; father of Elizabeth who married Sir John Pashley. [Magna Charta Sureties, p. 146]
    The Wydvilles, who claimed descent from a Norman called William de Wydville and his wife Emma, a Saxon, were an old family of minor gentry who had settled in Northamptonshire during the reign of Henry II. Their name is usually -- and incorrectly -- spelled Woodville, but that is a rare form in contemporary documents, in which it almost always appears as Wydville, Wydeville, Wydvil and Wydevile; on Queen Elizabeth's (wife of Edward IV) it is spelled Widville. [The Princess in the Tower, p. 19]
    Son of John de Wydeville and Isabel Lyons; married Elizabeth Lyons; father of Sir Richard Woodville who married Elizabeth Mary Bodulgate. [Charlemagne, Alfred the Great, and Other Ancestors, Chart 2110] Maloney, Hendrick & Others - J. H. Maloney.
