iii.RICHARD MUCKLESTON, b. 05 Feb 1579/80, Oswestry Shropshire; d. 01 Oct 1591, Oswestry Shropshire.

Notes for RICHARD MUCKLESTON:

Check date of death due to the fact that the register gives his fathers occupation as a Fletcher not Scrivenor.

iv.MARGARET MUCKLESTON, b. 10 Oct 1585, Bap Oswestry; m. ROBERT LLOYD, 11 Feb 1615/16, Oswestry, Shropshire..

Children of SIR WILLIAM MUCKLESTON are:

i.RICHARD10 MUCKLESTON, b. 05 Apr 1580, Bap Oswestry Shropshire; d. 26 Jan 1637/38, Bur Ludlow; m. DAME ELIZABETH AUBREY; b. 1583, Ludlow.

Notes for RICHARD MUCKLESTON:

He was left the estates of Trebonne in Carmarthen (of which his wife was heiress). he was charged with the minimal payment of 40 shillings to the poor of Oswestry

There is confusion as to whether or not he had a daughter Katherine. A Catherine married a Randal Allen in1602 and died in1619 and could not therefore be HIS daughter. In his will he leaves much of his estates to Muckleston Allen Gent. His will also mentions nephews and cousins called Allen. The Catherine who married Randal Allen would therefore appear to be his cousin. I have left the Katherine attached until evidence shows exactly who her parents are. His will was written on 23 January 1638.

1638
