Name: George Raleigh
Suffix: Esq 1
Death: 15 APR 1546 in Ogbourne St. George, Wilts
Residence: Farnborough, Warwickshire
Change Date: 8 JUL 2010
The Raleigh family, who were in considerable debt owing to their allegiance to the Crown in the Civil War, sold Farnborough Hall in 1683/4 to Ambrose Holbech (whose descendants are still there 2006).
F. N. Craig in a recent Register article, mentions George Ralegh, who died by 1546 when his will was proved (PCC, 27 Alen); married:
(1) Jane Connysby, daughter of William Connysby, knight
(2) the widow of Sir Thomas Fitzgarethe
(3) Anne Erneley.
In this will George Raleigh named Symon Ralegh his son and heir apparent, his married daughter Sibill Butler, and unmarried daughters Joan and Brygett. He mentions lands in Farnburgh (Farnborough) according to the Register article, but possibly Thornborough, co. Warwick.
Conceivably Constance Kingsmill (married Richard Fiennes in or before 1581) was born in 1562 and her mother Bridget Raleigh was born in 1541 (noting that George Ralegh of the Register article was dead by 1546). If Bridget Raleigh married Sir William Kingsmill about 1560, there are plausible intervals between the generations when each woman was married at age nineteen or twenty.
George Ralegh?s sister Bridget married Sir John Cope by whom he had among others, daughters Elizabeth Cope who married John Dryden whose descendants in the third and fourth generations included John Dryden, poet laureate, Jonathan Swift, and Anne (Marbury) Hutchinson; and Jane Cope whose daughter Elizabeth Boyle married Edmund Spenser, the Elizabethan poet.
