Thomas de Radclyffe of Winmarleigh (a 1385)
m. Elena de Tyldesley (dau of Hugh de Tyldesley)
1. Thomas Radclyffe of Winmarleigh (d 1440)
  BLG1952 identifies Thomas's wife merely as Margaret. A contributor (RS, 07.10.05) kindly advised us that the IGI identifies her as ...
  m. Margaret Tempest (dau of Sir Richard Tempest of Hertford)
  A. Thomas Radclyffe (dsp)

  m. Ellen Balderstone (dau of Richard Balderstone)
  a. Thomas Radclyffe (dvp 1473)
  m. Margery Radclyffe (dau of Richard Radclyffe of Chadderton)
  (1) Richard Radclyffe (d 1500)
BLG1952 does not name Richard's wife but, according to a contributor (RS, 07.10.05), the IGI identifies her as ...
  m. Anne Lawrence
  (A) Thomas Radclyffe 'of Winmarleigh' (b 1483, d 1521)

(b) Anne Radclyffe
  m. Sir Gilbert Gerrard of Brynn (Master of the Rolls)
  (ii) Cecily Radclyffe
  m1. Thomas ffarington
  m2. Edward Radclyffe of Great Mearley
  There is some inconsistency here. BLG1952 says that Cecily and Edward had a daughter Joan who married Ralph Assheton of Leaver. However, that Joan is also shown in that article as daughter of the following whom we assume to fit here not least because such is consistent with BLG1886 (Assheton of Downham) which reports that Joanna was "co-heiress through her mother of her kinsman, William Radclyffe, of Wymbersley" who was probably the William shown above as dsp 1562.
