(Fourth Generation - Stuckley Family)


BIRTH Nicholas was born circa 1451, as estimated from the fact that he was 16 years old in 1467[33]
DEATH He died on 27 May 1488; he was 37[33].
FAMILY STATUS Nicholas was the son & heir of his father, Hugh[28,33].
RESIDENCE & REAL ESTATE He was the lord (with a small "L") of the manors of Affeton, East & West Wolrington, Bradford Tracy, Huntshaw, and Meshaw -- all in Devonshire, England; Trent & Chilton Cantelowe -- both in Somerset, England; as well as Preston, Halfhyde & St. Mary Blanford -- in Dorset, England[28,33].
LEGAL MENTION Nicholas was mentioned in the Inquisition post mortem of Thomas Stukeley on 17 Edward IV (1477/8). [Chancery File 63 (49)]. Given the dates, I believe that Thomas was a brother or cousin of Nicholas.
