|Notes for Sir Robert de Reydon|
|m. (1) Alice, (2) Margery.|
It is not certain that he was the son of William de Reydon but he did inherit the estates of his uncle (Sir) Robert.
He is to be found on a pedigree of 1620 signed by William Segar, Garter, William Camden, Clarenceux and Ri St George, Norroy. This was prepared for the Twysdens but the research by E B Royden in his Three Roydon Families, pub 1923, supplants this pedigree.
He had an IPM: Cal Inq p.m. vi. 247. and as he held nothing of the king, nothing was done: Cal. Close R. 1323-27, p. 1
He held wide estates around South Suffolk:
The manor of Raydon,
Demesne lands at:
Raydon, Vrent Wenham, Hadleigh, Holton, Stratton, Layham, Hintlesham, Wherstead, Freston, Wolferston, Badingham and Framilngham all in Suffolk,
Ramsey and Wrabness in Essex
Nowthorp in Norfolk
Figheldean and Alton in Wilts.
|E B Reydon, "Three Royden Families", p. 20: |
Chequy argent and gules, a cross azure
These were possibly adopted from the feudal lord's arms, Vaux, which were Chequy argent and gules.
