1.4. Thomas ARCHDALE (John1), born b ca 1536, Stafford, Staffordshire, England; d testate November 1611 St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury, London, England; buried 27 Nov 1611 St. Antholin Budge Row, London; m (1) 31 Oct 1568, St. Antholin Budge Row, London, England, Mary CLIFTON, b 1545 St. Antholin Budge Row, London, England, d November 1578 St. Antholin Budge Row, London, England, d/o Richard CLIFTON and Margaret MORTON; m (2) December 29 1583 St. Antholin Budge Row, London, England, Blith WILFRED, died bef 1610. (no issue)


Thomas is listed, with no title or spouse, as a son of John, in the 1633/4 Harleian Visitations, which also include his children.
He is first found of record when he was admitted as a freeman (became a citizen of London) upon completing his apprenticeship with Thomas DUFFIELD as a Draper in 1559. It is this record on which his birth year is based (est. age 15 when apprenticed for est. eight years)


On 23 Sep 1589, one William ANDROWES of Tottenham, Middlesex conveyed to "Thomas ARCHDALE, citizen and draper of London, and to Barbara ARCHDALE, certain property in Tottenham, referring to Roger ANDROWES, grandfather, and John ANDROWES, father of the said William. (Claus Rolls, 31 Eliz: Part 29) (Waters Genealogical Gleanings)

Barbara was apparently Thomas' daughter, as the messuage, Page Green, in Tottenham, was a bequest in her 1651, Wanleip, Leicester will.

In 1597, he was named co-executor of the St. Margaret Pattens, London, will of his brother, Martin ("my brother Thomas ARCHDALE, draper, citizen of London.").

In 1599, he was named in the will of his brother, Matthew ARCHDALE.

According to the Archdale Memoirs, page 3: ..."Certain property at Tottenham [Middlesex] was conveyed to him on September 23rd 1589, by William ANDROWES Esq. of Tottenham." This was apparently the Page Green messuage given to his daughter, Barbara (see below).

The Memoirs also state that Mary CLIFTON was the "daughter of Richard CLIFTON of London, Skinner to King Henry VIII (by Margaret MORTON, of Shropshire)." No source is given for this statement.

Thomas and first wife, Mary CLIFTON had issue:
1.4.1. Margaret ARCHDALE, b abt 1569, St. Antholin Budge Row, London, England, d September 1616, St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury, London, England; m 11 Dec, 1587 St. Antholin Budge Row, London, England, John COMBE, b ca 1661, d 1610 London, England.

She is listed in the Harleian Visitations as "Margaret wife to John COMBES of London, marchant," and the 1599 will of her uncle, Matthew ARCHDALE includes bequests to "my cousins M. COMBS and Mistress PALMER (her sister Barbara having married William PALMER).

Her daughter, Mary COMBE married Randall MANNING in St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury in 1608, and her husband, John, died two years later. Following Margaret's death in 1616, her sister, Barbara, assumed administration of her estate and, apparently, guardianship of Margaret's three minor sons, John, William and Archdale (about whom, see John COMBE).

1.4.2. John ARCHDALE, christened 2 Dec 1571, St. Antholin Budge Row, London; buried there 30 Oct 1578.

The Harleian Visitations of 1633-4, London, Archdale Family, include John, listing him as having died s.p. (without issue).

1.4.3. Sarah ARCHDALE, b abt 1574, St. Antholin Budge Row, London, England; died ?; m (1) 1599-1605, Unknown SMITH; m (2) 1600-1606, Ady SARE of the Inner Temple, London, England, d aft 1631.

Not yet married in 1599 when named in the will of her uncle Matthew ARCHDALE ("To my cousin Sara ARCHDALE"). Her SMITH husband remains unidentified, and no marriage record has been located for either husband.

She is listed in the Harleian Visitations as "Sarah, wife to Ady SAYRES" (SAYERS in another transcription). According to the Archdale Memoirs, he was "of Provendery, Kent." No source is given for this statement, but the Visitations of Kent, 1619, apparently identify him ADY SAYER/SARE "of Provenders, Norton, Kent, and son and heir of Thomas SARE or SAYER of Lenham, Kent and Joanna ADY, d/o John ADY, and include his issue as of that year. (Cambridge Alumnienses)

Sarah, her daughters, Sarah (Susan) and Jane, and son, Thomas, were already born when her father named them and her husband, Ady SARE, in his 1609 will. Her daughter, Mary SMITH, is also named in the 1609 will of her father, but Sarah's first husband has never been identified, nor any record found of the christening of any of her children, whether SMITH or SARES.

It is not known when Sarah died. She was still alive in 1609 when her father's will was written and Ady SARES was still alive in 1631 when named in the Wheatley, Cuddesdon, Oxfordshire will of Abraham ARCHDALE (s/o Sarah's uncle, Barnard and Anne FERNE Archdale).

The 1629 Oriel College, Oxford University will of Sarah's nephew, William COMBE, included bequests to two of her daughters, Sarah Susan SAYER (wife of Thomas DUTTON) and Jane (wife of Henry WALLER) of Beaconsfield, Bucks.

1.4.4. Barbara ARCHDALE, b abt 1578, christened 1 Apr 1578, St. Antholin Budge Row, England; d testate 1650/1651, Wanlip, Leicestershire, England; m bef 1600, William PALMER, b bef 1580, Marston, Staffordshire, England, d testate abt 1636, St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, London, England, s/o Thomas PALMER and Joan FOX of Martson, Staffordshire, England

Barbara is listed in the Harleian Visitations, London, 1633/4, Archdale Family, as "wife to Wm PALMER of London marchant," and in the same, Palmer Family, as "Barbara da. of Thomas ARCHDALE of London." William is listed in this latter as "William PALMER of London living 1634," the son of Thomas PALMER of Martson, Staffordshire, and Joane FOX of Hopton, Staffordshire. The Palmer Visitation includes their sons, Archdale PALMER (eldest), William and John. These and other children are listed in the parish register of St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury.

No marriage record has been located for Barbara and William PALMER, but she was married by 1599 when referred to as cousin (niece) "Mistress PALMER" in the 1599 St. Michael Paternoster Royal, London, will of her uncle, Matthew ARCHDALE. Two of her sons were christened at St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury where William PALMER was buried in 1636, having died testate.

In Sep 1616, following the death of her sister, Margaret, Barbara ARCHDALE Palmer of St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury assumed administration of her estate and guardianship of Margaret's three minor sons, John, William and Archdale COMBE. In his 1629 Oriel College, Oxford University will, her nephew William COMBE, includes a bequest to "my uncle PALMER'S three sonnes," and "to my aunt PALMER his wife my dr amond ringe which I weare uppon my finger."

Barbara died testate in Wanlip, Leicestershire, her will including bequests to numerous of her relatives.
