«i»Note:«/i» Several different theories of the Dudley linea ge have been proposed. Marshall W. Kirk of the New Englan d Historic Genealogical Society carefully reviewed the vari ous arguments and evidence for the Dudley ancestry and offe red a plausible, but not proven, paternal ancestry, with ro yal descents (from Edward III, I think). His work has has n ot been published by itself, but it has been abstracted i n the *most recent*edition of Gary B. Roberts' Ancestors o f the Presidents and (I think) in David Faris' The Plantage net Ancestry of Seventeenth Century Colonists. Marshall sug gests that it is likely that Capt.

Roger Dudley (between 1535/45 - 1590) was a British soldier.
Roger Dudley was born in London, England, but is said to ha ve been baptised in Yardley Hastings, Northamptonshire. H e was the son of Captain Sir Henry Sutton Dudley, who marri ed an unnamed daughter of one Christopher Ashton between 15 45 and 1550. Ashton's daughter died sometime after Octobe r 29, 1588, but before 1590. Henry Dudley was himself the s on of John Sutton, 3rd Baron Dudley, "Lord Quondam", who wa s married to Cecily Grey. Roger may be the Roger Dudley wh o was matriculated as pensioner at Christ College, Cambridg e, in 1566, but left without a degree.
It is believed that he married, on June 8, 1575, at Lidling ton, Bedfordshire, Susannah (née Thorne), herself recorde d as having been born on March 5, 1559/60 in Northamptonshi re, and baptised at Yardley Hastings, the daughter of Thoma s Thorne and Mary Purefoy. Dudley is said to have been "i n financial difficulty" when he was married under the incon spicuous title of Mr. Roger Dudley. His wife's family claim ed descent from Charlemagne.
He is reported to have been a Captain in (the Earl of Leice ster)'s militia, fighting with a commission from Elizabet h I, and under the banner of Henry of Navarre. He is though t to have died at the Battle of Ivry, France in 1590. Yet i n 1586, four years earlier, the Reverend Cotton Mather of B oston wrote: "Thomas Dudley's father was Captain Roger Dudl ey, -- slain in the wars, when -- his son, and one only dau ghter were very young".
Marshall K. Kirk suggests that Roger made his home after hi s father's death with Peter Grey, a "Queen's servant", whos e manor of Segenhoe was two miles from Lidlington, (Bedford shire), where Roger was later married.
Roger and Susannah Dudley raised at least 5 children, liste d as:
1. Thomas Dudley. (second governor of Massachusetts) 2. Mar y Dudley . 3. Richard Dudley. (b. 1583 - d. 20 Aug 1603). 4 . Dorothy Dudley. 5. David Dudley.
Susannah is recorded as having died in 1585 during childbir th, at St. Dunstan's, London and again three years later i n a will, dated October 29, 1588, (Probate 9th May 1589), w hen Thomas Thorne bequeaths... "to the Children of Susan Du dley, my Daughter..." (etc.)
William Dudley, a son of David, was the first of this lin e in the family of the lords of Dudley to move to Connectic ut, and founded the settlement of Guilford, on the shores o f Long Island Sound. He emigrated to New England sometime b etween 1636/43.
Three of William Dudley's great grandsons were to give thei r family name to their new home in the Cornwall hills, whe n they moved to Owlsbury from Guilford in the mid C17. Owls bury was renamed Dudleytown, and thereafter the persisten t legend of America's most haunted town was born.
