  • ID: I27675
  • Name: John Rawden 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1474
  • Residence: Rawdon, Guiseley, Yorkshire
  • LVG: Hen VII & VIII 1
  • Note: 1

    John Rawdon of Rawdon in the parish of Guiseley Co York during the reign of Henry VII and VIII married the daughter of Thomas Fenton of Crake, Co York. In the book Rawson of Rawson published in Dublin 1870 it states that John married the daughter of Robert Thornton of Denby. I cannot say which is correct but from the marriage he had two sons, John and Ralph.
    This is where the pedigree splits, the elder branch attaining titles in the peerage of England, Scotland and Ireland, the younger gaining wealth and fortune by trade.
