?Richardi Rugge, in comitatu Salopi? (On his son in law?s brass)
Can?t find a place called Rugge in Shropshire, but there is a Rudge.
Is anything known of the pedigree of this Sir Richard Rugge He may have been a Rudge of Rudge, co. Salop, as the arms of that family appear on a monument in the parish church of Pattenham, co. Stafford, where Jane lies buried.
(Notes and Queries. 1908.)
Is this him:
In autumn 1484, (an associate of Francis, Vct Lovell) Richard Rugge of Shropshire was added to the Berkshire commissions of array.
(Richard III: A Study of Service by Rosemary Horrox. 1989.)
The family of Rugg took their name from a lordship, or hamlet in the town of Pattingham in Staffordshire and were of good degree and eminency. The name is variously spelled, Rugg, Rug, Rugge, and even Rygge and Rigge. The younger branch of the family settled in Norfolk. In the 49th year of the reign of Edward III [1375/6], Nicholas Rugg, second son of John Rugg of Rugg, seated himself there.
Over the head of the first wife, Jane, only daughter and heir of Sir Richard Rugge, kt., is a lozenge bearing quarterly: 1) gules, a chevron engrailed between 3 mullets pierced argent for Rugge; 2) argent, a chevron engrailed between three pairs of keys in pale, the bows interlaced sable, Skeene ; 3 argent, a chevron engrailed between three popinjays vert, langued and armed or, Heath ; 4 ermine, a chief dancettee gules, Moreton.
