Name: Nicola De Arderne 1
Birth: ABT 1315 in Drayton, Oxfordshire
Change Date: 5 JUN 2012
Notes about her son Hugh seem to say she was Thomas?s 2nd wife and she was from Bedford.
Nichola, daughter of Sir Robert de Arderne of Drayton, Oxon., who had previously been the wife of Sir Ralph Bassett of Weldon.
Sir Ralph Basset of Weldon in 1331 settled his Drayton property on Richard his son and heir on the occasion of his marriage with Nicole daughter of Sir Robert de Arderne. Richard died childless and was succeeded by his brother Ralph.
The descendants of William Ardern of Rodburne, the second son of Henry de Ardern, were more fortunate than
their cousins. Thomas de Draiton was the elder, and William de Rodburne the younger. Thomas married
Lucia, and had Thomas de Arden of Hanwell, Sir Robert de Arderne de Draiton, and Ralph (married Alicia de Bellocampo.)
Thomas, who bore as arms Ermine a fesse chequy, or and azure, as now borne, married Rose, daughter of
Ralph de Vernon, with whom he obtained the lordship of Hanwell. He was living in 1287, and had a son,
Thomas, who presented to the church of Holdenby, 1334. This Thomas married Johanna de (?), and had an only daughter, Joan, who married Sir John Swynford.
