2) Sir Richard Page, who acquired the manor of Beechwood,
Hertfordshire, during the Tudor dissolution of the religious houses,
appears to have a connection to the Burgh (or Borough) family who were
Lords Burgh of Gainsborough. A pedigree of the Burgh family in
Foster's edition of the visitations of Yorkshire says that Sir Richard
Page was son of Sir Henry page and his wife Margaret Daniell. Sir
Henry in turn was son of another Richard whose wife was beatrix,
sister of Thomas, 1st Lord Burgh. I don't know how reliable this
visitation pedigree is, but it's worth considering.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, John. I now have the
pedigree in front of me. It would appear to have been taken in 1584.
It's not clear who the informant was, but it may have been William,
4th Lord Burgh, who died in September of that year, and whose eldest
son is described in the pedigree as "Henricus, primogenitus aetatisque
15". The pedigree begins with Elizabeth Stathbogie, wife first of Sir
Thomas Percy, then of Sir John Scrope. The husbands of her two Scrope
daughters are given accurately; the marriages of Elizabeth Bardolf,
the wife of Sir Henry Percy of Atholl, are given correctly (though the
first name of her first husband is given in the pedigree as 'Rogeri
Dom. Scales', when he was actually Robert, Lord Scales (son of
Roger)); the marriages (two each) of Sir Henry Percy of Atholl's two
daughters are given accurately; and the generations down to William
4th Lord Burgh are also given accurately.
The line for Sir Richard Page runs,
1) "Elizabeth, Dna. Lacy, mater Thomae Burgh, militis, 34 Hen. VI. =
Thomas Burgh" and were parents of
2) "Beatrix, primo nupta ...... Strickland, qui obiit sine prole;
renupta Ricardo Page armigero" who were parents of
3) "Henricus Page, miles = Margareta, dau. and heir of ... Danyell"
who were parents of
4) "Ricardus Page, miles = Elizabetha, soror Johannis comitis
Bathonia" who were parents of
5) "Elizabetha, filia et haeres Ricardi Page, militis = Willielmus
Skipwith, miles" who were parents of
6) "Ricardus Skipwith, miles"
Part of generation #2 above is confirmed by the following marriage
19 Sept. 1462, Westminster. "Pardon to Richard Page and Beatrice late
the wife of Richard Stirkeland, esquire, tenant in chief of Henry VI,
for their trespass in intermarrying without licence."
Beatrice's first husband was Richard Strickland of Haversham,
Buckinghamshire (died 9 March 1458):
Both of her husbands Richard Strickland & Richard Page have bios in
Wedgwood's HOP which I can't read because the online version thru the
BYU Library is completely blurry.
One chronological red flag is the generation of Sir Henry Page. The
marriage of Beatrice to Richard Page may have taken place a couple
years before they received the pardon in 1462, but even if they
married later in 1458 (Strickland died in March that year), the
earliest their son Sir Henry Page could have been born is 1459.
Elizabeth Bourchier had to have been born by 1479, the year her father
Lord Fitzwarine died. It's always possible Sir Richard Page was a few
years younger than her, but that still doesn't leave a lot of time
between his birth and his grandparents' marriage. Hopefully the bio
of Richard Page in Wedgwood's HOP will provide further clues.
