  B. Sir John Rudston, Lord Mayor of London (a 1528)
  (1) Sir John is sometimes shown as son of a Walter, presumably the Walter we show as his brother. For example, that view is supported by BHO (History & Topographical Survey of Kent, vol 5, Parishes: Boughton Monchensie) & Visitation (Kent, 1574, Rudston). Provisionally, we follow Commoners, BEB1841 & Foster in showing him as of this generation.

  v. Anne Rudston
  Foster, presumably reporting Visitation (1584/5), shows Emma (m. Martin Hildyard) as of this generation but with a note that Visitation (1612) suggests that her name was Anne. FMG (Continuation, p95) shows Emma, m1. Martin Hildyard m2. William Husthwaite, as dau of Lord Mayor John. However, Commoners shows Emma (m. Martin Hildyard) in the next generation which is supported by the Hildyard record.
