John SCUDAMORE (Sir)

Born: Kentchurch, Herefordshire, England

Died: 1434, Kentchurch, Herefordshire, England

Notes: married one of the daughters of Owain Glyndŵr or Glendower, Alys. When this marriage, to a Welsh woman and the daughter of the rebel himself, came to the notice of King Henry VI in 1432, he summarily stripped Sir John Scudamore of the honours he held at that time as steward of the castles of Monmouth, Grosmont and White Castle. It has been postulated that Sir John Scudamore and Alys were the harbourers of Owain Glyndŵr after his disappearance after 1412 and kept him in his final years in secret on their estates. Their ability to keep their marriage and Alys's identity secret from the wider world for over twenty years gives credence to this possibility.

John Skydmore, called a husbandman, alienated these premises to Thomas Barnard of Denham on 10 Febr 1483. On 31 Mar 1502 John Skydmore “of Denham” gave a deed to Thomas Jordan of the same place of a parcel or meadow at Southmede called Spertmede. He was dead before 12 Oct 1505 when Thomas Bannister and Margaret (the widow of John Skydmore) gave a bond in the sum of £10 to John Miklowe to protect him in his possession of certain lands in Denham that were once the property of John Skydmore, deceased. His heir was his first son, also John Skydmore, was the first of the name at Kingsbury. A younger son, Thomas, was recruited by the Abbess Agnes Jordan as a lay brother for Syon.

James SCUDAMORE of Holme Lacy (Sir)

Born: 1568

Died: 19 Apr 1619

Notes: Described by William Higford as ‘a brave man at arms, both at tilt and barriers’, he served on the 1596 voyage to Cadiz and the Azores expedition the following year, ‘wherein he performed very remarkable and signal service under the conduct of the earl of Essex’. His prowess was such that Spenser used his name for a knightly character in The Faerie Queene. However, he retired from the Court and the tilts in 1600 and returned to Holme Lacy, where he and his father trained warhorses.

Scudamore first stood for the county in 1601 with his cousin Sir Herbert Croft, but was defeated by Sir Thomas Conningsby. In 1604 he stood again, as did Croft, with whom he probably joined forces, and this time he was returned, apparently without a contest.

Scudamore’s relations with his second wife were troubled from at least 1604. They were briefly separated in 1607 and in the following year Mary left Holme Lacy, claiming her father-in-law had driven her out. She was persuaded to return, but as Sir John would not let her back she was sent to live with a kinsman of the Scudamores. There, according to Hannibal Baskerville, her son by her first marriage, she was clapped in irons and starved into submission, despite being pregnant. Thanks to the intervention of her mother, Lady Throckmorton, she escaped, and in Nov 1608 Scudamore agreed to allow her £100 a year. When he stopped making the payments the following year he was hauled before the Privy Council, whereupon Scudamore prosecuted his mother-in-law in the court of High Commission for doing ‘many evil offices’ between him and his wife. Lady Throckmorton was subsequently gaoled for contempt of court, although she was bailed on appeal in 1610, and Scudamore apparently stopped all payments to his wife in 1612 or 1613. In 1614 he had his stepson declared a ward of the crown, and purchased the wardship himself for £20. He also forged a lease to keep the Baskerville estates permanently in Scudamore hands, an offence not discovered and remedied until after his death.
