  Mr. Marshall Kirk, of the New England Historic Genealogical Society, has conducted a thorough review (as yet unpublished) of the *SIX* previously-published theories of descent of Gov. Thomas Dudley's father from baronial Sutton-Dudleys (which include the one you have mentioned).
  Mr. Kirk offers a seventh choice, which (like the others) has not been proven by recovery of definitive documentary evidence of paternity, but which (unlike the others) appears to corroborate all the known circumstantial evidence for these Dudleys' connections with the baronial sytem. This line also appears in the most recent edition of Gary Boyd Roberts' _Ancestors of American Presidents_ (1st authoritative ed., Baltimore, 1993), pp. 200-201. Briefly, Marshall's theory of the governor's descent is as follows:
  Sir John Sutton, alias Dudley, 1st Baron Dudley, d. 1487, m. Elizabeth Berkeley
 Edmund Sutton, alias Dudley, d. v. p. 1483/7, m. Joice Tibetot
 Edward Sutton, alias Dudley, 2d Baron Dudley, d. 1532, m. Cecily Willoughby
 John Sutton alias Dudley, 3d Baron Dudley, d. 15 Sep 1553, d. Cecily Grey
 <lord John was a half-wit and died penniless, so there is no will or ipm,
 but he had at least five sons, including:>
 Capt. Sir Henry Dudley, d. 1568/70 (who has been at times confused with
 two other contemporary Sir Henry Dudleys), m. __, dau. or stepdau. of
 Christopher Ashton
 <Capt. Sir Henry was exiled for treason and later restored, but d. deep in
 debt, leaving no will or ipm. His issue unproven but (for var. reasons
 argued by Marshall) prob. included:>
 Capt. Roger Dudley, m. Susanna Thorne
 Gov. Thomas Dudley
  These findings are presented in typescripts entitled 'The Filiation of Capt. Roger Dudley: a Terse Summary of Points Made in Marshall K. Kirk's Talk, 20 Nov. 1993' and 'Sutton-Dudley, 1380-1649: a (Partially) Corrected Pedigree by Marshall K. Kirk (updated 14 December 1995)'. Serious researchers who share an interest in this question may wish to contact Mr. Kirk through the New England Historic Genealogical Society in Boston. I cannot presume to say whether copies of these MSS are distributed freely by the Society.
