Descendants of John De Rugge of Seysdon, Co. Stafford, England

The following is a genealogy of the Rudge family associated with Evesham, England based on Frankford (ed.) (ca. 1910) "Rudge, The Name and The Arms", a three page pamphlet brought to my attention by Scott Rudge on 3 Aug 1998. It is clearly an extract from a much larger unnamed landed gentry published some time after 1828, but before 13 May 1841 as it contains no mention of the present esquire of Evesham 57. Edward Rudge as having remarried. The text claims to be based on "manorial grants cited in Shaw's Staffordshire." I have supplemented it with information taken from Burke's (1952) Landed Gentry (17th edition) pp. 2216-7 which takes up the story with 6. John RUGGE and a few additional sources as indicated.
