Family notes:

·         The records favor Margaret not being the d/o William Ludlowe of Salisbury (d.1478). The various pedigrees appear to mix the records of at least 2 other persons of the name “William Ludlowe” contemporay with this William, 1 in Shropshire, and another in the King’s service. [They cannot be in Shropshire, Wiltshire, and France all at the same time.]

Child of William and ?:

i. Margaret Ludlow (475269), born ~1425 in England.

Margaret 1st married ‘John Erley’ of Ludgershall, Wiltshire.
