Note: N7476 Bredenbury, where she was married, is 17 miles from Shobdon. It is 3 1⁄2 miles W. of Bromyard, 8 1⁄2 E. of Leominster, and 14 N.E. of Hereford.
The IGI has no other event in Bredenbury for any Woodhouse, other than this marriage, so it would seem Milborough was not born there.
It would seem that the first son was named after his paternal grandfather, the second after his father, and the third after his maternal grandfather.

Yatton Court, Aymestrey, Herefordshire, is set in the most glorious park which was created in the late 18th century by the then owner, John Woodhouse (1716-1792). In the early 1800s Yatton Court was owned by John Woodhouse who was a Governor of Bridewell and Bethlehem Hospitals, and was for many years one of the Directors of the East India company as well as a major landowner in Herefordshire (he also owned Aramstone House in Kings Caple). He was outlived by his wife Elizabeth, who died in 1817 aged 93 “in full possession of her faculties”.
Yatton Court, Aymestrey, on the South Shropshire/North Herefordshire border, was completed in 1790 by John Woodhouse of Ledicot, who bought the site from the Weaver family, and has remained in the family since it was built.
Aymestry and Ledicot are 3.5km apart.
The original Aramstone House dated back to the early 17th century, when it was owned by the Marrett family, then it passed to the Woodhouse family through marriage. Francis Woodhouse rebuilt the house in around 1730.
