Families covered: Arden of Cudworth, Arden of Park Hall, Arden of Radbourn, Arden of Sulgrave

BLG1952 does not mention the illustrious Saxon descent reported in the upper section of this page. It comes wholly from Commoners and is shown for its interest value rather than in the belief that it is reliable.
Siward, lord of Wallingford
1. Guy, later Earl of Warwick (d 927)
  m. Felicia (dau of Rohand, Earl of Warwick)
  A. Reynborn, Earl of Warwick
  m. Leonetta (dau of King Athelstan)
  i. Wegent, Earl of Warwick
  a. Ufa, Earl of Warwick (a 974)
  (1) Wolgeat, Earl of Warwick
  Wolgeat's "hereditary successor" was the undermentioned Wigod. We presume that Wigod was his nephew but the connection could have been more distant.
  (2) ??
  (A) Wigod
  m. ?? (sister of Earl Leofrick of Mercia)
  (i) Alwyne - continued below



Aelfwine or Alwyne, Sheriff of Warwickshire (a temp Edward the Confessor who r. 1042-1066) - continued above
1. Thurkill or Turchill of Warwick or of Arden (d c1100)
  m1. ??
  A. Siward de Arden of Cudworth, etc
  m. Cecilia
  i. Hugh de Arden (dsp)
  ii. Henry de Arden (a 1166)
  a. Thomas de Arden of Cudworth (a 1207)
  Commoners shows this Thomas as the husband of Eustachia de Pinkney. We provisionally follow BLG1952 in inserting the additional generation.
  (1) Thomas de Arden of Cudworth
  m. Eustachia de Pinkney (widow of Savaricus de Malaleone)
  (A) Sir Thomas de Arden of Ratley (a 1286)
  b. William de Arden of Radbourn
  #1# Commoners jumps from this William to the Sir John shown below as father of Rose & brother of Sir Henry, adding a note that: "For the intermediate line refer to Dugdale's Warwickshire; in which, however, apperar some discrepancies." Lipscomb shows Siward as father of (Thomas, Herbert, Letitia and) William of Redburn father of (William, 2nd son, and) Thomas ("6 Joh" so probably the Thomas of Cudworth shown above) father of (Sir Thomas of Hanwell, 2nd son, and) Sir Robert who m. Nichola. This clearly contradicts the following which comes from BLG1952. See note #2# below.
  m. Galiena
  (1) William de Arden of Radbourn
  m. Avice
  (A) Sir Thomas de Arden of Hanwell & Cudworth
  m. Riese
  (i) Thomas de Arden of Hanwell & Spratton
#1# BLG1952 says of this line only that Thomas's "male line became extinct". The following is highly speculative and is an attempt to include the data provided by Lipscomb on the ancestry of the Margaret who m. Lodowick Greville. In effect it assumes that this Thomas (as reported by BLG11952) was confused by Lipscomb with the Thomas shown above as of Cudworth, alive in 1207. See note #1# above. The following comes from Lipscomb.
  (a) Sir Robert Arden
  m. Nichola
  ((1)) Sir Giles Arden 'of Drayton'
  m. Phillip(a)
  ((A)) Margaret Arden
  m. Lodowick Greville (d 28.08.1438)

  (b) Sir Thomas de Arden of Hanwell

  m. Elizabeth Clodshall (dau of Richard Clodshall)
  ((a)) Walter Arden of Park Hall (d 05.08.1502)
  m. (c1457) Eleanor Hampden (dau of John Hampden of Hampden)

  iii. Letitia de Arden mentioned by Lipscomb, possibly a generation later
m. Geoffrey Savage
  B.+ other issue - Peter (monk), Ralph
  m2. Leverunia, heiress of Kingsbury
  D. Osbert de Arden of Kingsbury
  BLG1952 (Arden) reports that it was Osbert's granddaughter Amice who conveyed Kingsbury into the Bracebridge family but Commoners (vol i, Bracebridge of Atherstone Hall) identifies her as his daughter. As Commoners also provides details of Osbert's son and his daughters, thereby appearing to have investigated the relationships more closely, we follow Commoners.
  i. Osbert de Arden of Kingsbury
  a. Adeliza de Arden (dsp)
  m. Simon de Harcourt
  b. Amabil de Arden
  m. Robert FitzWalter
  ii. Philip de Compton (a 1204, 1235)
  Philip (and Peter) are identified as of this generation by Collins (see the continuation).

  m. Peter de Bracebridge
2.+ other issue - Gudmund, Chebelbert
