PEERAGE OF ENGLAND.




WODEHOUSE, LORD WODEHOUSE.



There have been several families of ancient extraction of this
surname, that have been denominated, according to the custom of
former ages, from their possessions ; the pedigrees of t^is family
deduce them from Bertram, of Wodehouse-Toiver in Yorkshire;
but hardly any accounts are to be depended on.

Mr. Wotton, however, is of opinion, that they were surnamed
WoDEHOusE, from a tenement and lands now in Windham,
called Wodekouse, lying in Silfield, Norfolk. That they were
gentlemen of goou rank in the time of King John, Peacham in-
forms us, which appeared to him by many ancient grants and evi-
dences of the family, which he had seen, and from which the
pedigree was collected ; but the following account of this an-
cient family is the only one which stands supported on sufficient
authority.

First, Sir CoNSTANTiNE r>E WoDEHousE, who married Isabel,
daughter and heir of Botetort, in the beginning of Hen. I. who
was succeeded by his son and heir,

Second, Sir Geokge de Wodehouse, who flourished in the
time of Hen. L whom he accompanied into Normandy, and
was at the burning of Baieux, and taking of Caen castle. He
married Winifrede, daughter and heir of Lacy, by whom he
had,

daughter of the Lord Say,

of Clervaux, and died about 126/ , 52 Hen. III.

Sixth, Francis Wodehouse, Esq. son of Sir William, married
the daughter and coheir of Sir John Peeche, and was succeeded

daughter and heir of Humphry Luttrell.

Ninth, Sir Richard de Wodehouse, son of Sir William, was

Emond, of Cranworth, Esq. who married Maud, daughter and
heir of Sir Baldwin Botourt, of Cranworth, Knt.

Eleventh, Sir Edward de Wodehouse, son of Sir Thomas,
married a daughter and coheir of Erpingham. I have not met
with any account of his sons or daughters, besides.

jieaux« On the decease of Henry IV. his son King Henry V,
chosft him esquire of his own body 3 in 1414, he was admitted
one of the chamberlains of the Exchequer for life.

In 1415, he attended the King's person to the battle of Agiit-
COURT in France, where he won great renown by his valiant
prowess.

For his g3llant behaviour the King granted him an annuity of
ten marks a year, out of his manor of Thetford, and made him
steward of all the dominion of the duchy of Lancaster in Norfolk,
and Cambridgeshire, with a salary of 10/. per annum j and, as a
perpetual augmentation of honour, assigned him the crest of a
hand, issuing from the clouds, holding a dub, and this motto,
Frappe forte, Strike strong ; and the savage, oriDild man, holding
a club, which was the ancient crest of the family, was now
omitted, and two of them placed as supporters to the arms, which
had a further augmentation of honour added in the shield, viz. ox
the chevron, gutte de sang, as they are borne to this day.

He served no less than four times in parliament for the county
of Norfolk, viz. in 1409, H Henry IV, with John Winter, Esq.;

by whom he was recommended to Henry VI. At his father's
death he lived at Bocking-Ash in Sutfolk, and dying the next
year without issue, his estate went to his brother John.

Fifteenth, John Wodehouse, Esq. his brother, succeeded him,
who, when the commissioners were appointed, 12 Hen. VI. to
summon all persons of best note, and tender them an oath for the
keeping the peace, and observing the King's laws, for themselves
and retainers, was returned as one of the principal gentlemen of
Norfolk ; and because he would not take the honour of knight-
hood, was fined accordingly. He married Constance, eldest
daughter and coheir of Thomas Geddynge, of Icklingham in
Suffolk, Esq. relict, first, of Henry Pooley, Esq. and after that, of
John Aleyne, Esq. one of the Barons of the Exchequer, by whom
