Richard MARLOW 1
- Marriage (1): Elizabeth
- Died: Bef 1634 2
Richard was a tanner in Wokingham in Berkshire, and owned land in the nearby village of Hurst. (Land in Hurst was still owned 200 years later by his gg grandson Michael Marlow DD.) The early parish registers for Wokingham have not survived, so Richard's family tree has been pieced together from wills, including that of his wife Elizabeth (qv), with help from the Stevens FH.
Richard's son Clement was an apothecary in Reading, and executor for his mother in 1633. He married twice but does not appear to have had any surviving children. A disclaimer to Arms was made on his behalf during the 1665-6 Visitation to Berkshire, which may mean that he supported the Parliamentarian cause during the Civil War. Another of Richard's sons William may have been the William Marlow who was appointed Chief Constable of the Sonning Hundred (which includes Wokingham) in 1650 - a William Marlow of Wokingham also had his name crossed out from the 1665-6 Visitation. Other sons who left wills were Michael (qv) and John, who also was a tanner in Wokingham. Richard's only known daughter Ann married John Sellon, a yeoman of Elvetham in Hampshire.
