Families covered: Ludlow of Campdene, Ludlow of Hodnet, Ludlow of Moor House, Ludlow of Stokesay Castle

The family site starts its pedigree with the following Nicholas but notes uncertainty as to whether there were 2 Nicholases or just one. Provisionally we take the latter view.
Nicholas de Ludlow of Shrewsbury (a 1265, wool merchant)
m1. Marjery
1. Sir Laurence de Ludlow of Stokesay Castle, co. Salop (d 1294, wool merchant) the first mentioned by Visitation
  m. Agnes Audley (dau of James, Lord Audley)
  A. Sir William de Ludlow of Stokesay Castle (d 1316)
  m. Matilda de Hodnet (d 1347, dau of Sir William de Hodnet)
i. Sir Laurence de Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet (b 1300, d 1353)
  m. Hawise D'ervassal (dau of Sir Humphrey D'ervassal)
  Visitation inserts an additional generation here, a William.
  a. Sir John de Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet, Sheriff of Salop (b 1327, d 1382)
  m. Joan de Sibbeton (dau/coheir of William de Sibbeton)
  (1) Sir Richard de Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet (b 1361, d unm 1390)
  (2) Sir John de Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet (b 1366, d 1398)
  m. Isabel Lingen (dau of Sir Ralph Lingen or Lingayn of Wigmore by ?? Pembrugge)
  (A) Sir William Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet, Sheriff of Salop (b 1397, d 1474)
  m. Maud
  (i) Sir Richard Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet, Sheriff of Salop (b 1430, d 1498)
  The family site shows Sir Richard's wife as Alice Greville (shown as mother of John) but the Visitations identify her as Isabel Pembridge (shown as mother of John). We presume that he married twice.
  m1/2. Alice Greville (dau of Sir William Greville)
  m2/1. Isabel Pembridge (dau of Sir _ Pembridge)
  Not known which lady was mother of John. One section of Visitation shows an additional generation, a John who by dau of Sir Robert Corbett was father of the following John, and then goes on to show the John who married Elizabeth Gray (sic) as father of Sir John who (by Isabella, dau of Sir Roger Vychan) was father of Anna, Elizabeth & Maria (dsp, m. Sir Richard Corbett). That is corrected in the other section of Visitation which supports what is given in the family site.
(a) Sir John Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet
  The shorter but apparently more reliable section on this family in the Visitation adds a note to report that there is doubt about the identify of Sir John's wife, suggesting that she may have been Elizabeth, dau of Sri Roger Kynaston of Hordley by the (only) sister of Lord Powis. We provisionally follow the normal identifification which shows her as ...
  m. Elizabeth Grey (d 1466, dau of Sir Richard Grey, Lord Powis)
  ((1)) John Ludlow of Stokesay Castle & Hodnet (dsp)
  m. Mary Corbet (dau of Robert Corbet, m2. Thomas Lacon of Willey)
  ((2)) Ann Ludlow (b 1480)
  m. Thomas Vernon of Stokesay (Stocksey)
  ((3)) Alice Ludlow
  m. (1493) Humphrey Vernon of Hodnet (d 1542)
  The family site shows Humphrey & Maurice as of this generation. One section of Visitation (the one which confused the generation of the John who m. _ Corbet) shows both as sons of Sir John by Elizabeth Grey. However, the other section, which does not mention Humphrey, does show Moris as of this generation.

  (2) William Ludlow 'of Hill Deverill'
  The family site ends one pedigree with William (d 1478) and starts another with William (b c1399, d 1478). Noting that the date of birth of the William on the second pedigree is after the date given for this William's father's death, we assume that this William was father of (rather than the same person as) ...
