Notes on Isabella de Cherleton:
Isabella de Cherelton after the death of John de Sutton, married Richard (Le Fisher) Dudley, so called the 1st. "Dudleys", founder of the Clopton Dudley, Richard assumed the name of Dudley in right of his wife, the widow of Sir. John de Sutton. They held the castle and lands of Dudley; and Sir Richard Dudley by courtesy of England, styles himself "Richard de Dudleye, Seigneur de Dudley," in a charter "don a Duddley le Samady p'chain apres les utaves de Sente Michel l'Archangell, l'an de regne le Roy Edward tierce, puis la conq'st trente quartre" 1360, whereby he and Isabelle sa femme" grant and confirm to Thomas de Alleford, for the term of the life of Isabella, certain lands in King Swinford which she had by the grant and feoffment of Mons de Sutton."
When Isabella died in April 10, 1397, the post-mortem inquisitions say that she held the Castle of Dudley and the manors of Sedgley, Himley, Swinford, etc., and certain lands in Tybington, also lands in Gloucestershire in company with her husband Richard de Duddeley, chevalier, which lands, after the death of said Richard and Isabella, were to revert to John de Sutton, chevalier, and Joan his wife, and heirs of said John. Richard was probably descended from the Paganell and Somerie families which held Dudley Castle a long time.
