Richard Starkey of Stretton, Cheshire (a temp Henry II who r. 1154-1189)
1. Richard Starkey
  A. Richard Starkey
  i. Randle Starkey
  m. Ellena
The above comes from various web sites. BLG1952 (Starkie of Huntroyde) starts with Randal who inherited lands from his (elder) brother Richard by 1355. Various web sites report that the senior line was 'of Netherhall' whilst the younger was 'of Overhall'. See ## here ## for the notice given in MGH that there was around this time a Galfrid Starkey of Stretton who had a son, Rafe of Stretton, by Alice de Hellesby.
