Philip RUDD 1
Philip was a property owner at Waterhouses in the Parish of Asby, and was presumably a farmer. He named six children in his will of 1688. He left his property at Waterhouses to his eldest son Robert; and his property named Fellhead, close to Waterhouses, to his next son Thomas. He left money to his next two sons Matthew and William - Matthew was a schoolteacher at Ravenstonedale, but died when he was just 33. Philip appointed his two daughters, Margaret and Jane (qv) as his executrixes. Philip's wife Jane died six years before him.
Philip married Jane. (Jane was buried on 27 Feb 1682 in St Peter, Asby, Westmorland 2.)
