Woodward Family, continued (page 2)

CHRISTOPHER WOODWARD (son of Edward, grandson of Richard) was born probably about 1530, and died probably by 1575.   He is buried in the churchyard of St. Olave, Southwark, Co Surry, England.

In Register of Freemen of the City of London in the Reigns of Henry VIII and Edward VI., by the Corporation of London (England)... there is a Christopher Woodward listed, son of Edward.   That Christopher was a "citizen and vintner, of London," about 1563.    September 16, 1563, Christopher Woodward, "Citizen and Vintner of London" was one of the executors listed in the will of Henry Leke, "citizen and clothworker of London."  Henry desired to be buried in the church of "St. Olyve's Southwerke" of which he was a parishioner. The will was proved Dec 13, 1563.  

The Visitations of the County of Surrey Made and Taken in the Years 1530 states that Christopher married l) Margaret, as his first wife.

2)  Elizabeth m. 1) Thom. Langley; 2) John Saracole

Christopher married 2nd, ELIZABETH OLDBURY, daughter of John Oldbury of  com. Sallop.

Regarding Elizabeth Oldbury.   I have been unable to find any particulars about her father, John.   The last name can be spelled various ways, and this hinders my research, so far.     It is interesting to note that there was a JOHN OLDEBURY "of Suthwerk," in 1398 (much, much too early, but I think we probably could assume he is "of the family.")   Also, in Abstracts of Probate Acts in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury there is mention of a later John Oldbury - in 1635:   The will of Sir George Paule, of Water Lambeth (p. Lambeth, Surrey, Kt.) was proved April 14, 1634-5 by John Oldbury, Exor.

     Elizabeth married 2nd) Robert Feltham.    Robert Feltham, a vintner, and the parish of St. Olave Southwark where they lived, is mentioned in The Pursuit of Stability, by Ian W. Archer:  This book discusses local governments, neighbourhoods and communities, and on page 71 mentions that "select vestries were not necessarily unrepresentative of their communities.  In inner city parishes, communities typically of about eighty households, the establishment of a select vestry of twenty men hardly represented the imposition of a tiny elite.   These parishes were small enough to give bestrymen many connections, whether through friendship, employment, landlordship, credit, patronage, or poor relief, with those householders not represented on the vestry.    Most householders could therefore count on the advocacy of some member of the vestry.  The same may have been true to a lesser extent even of extramural parishes like ST. OLAVE SOUTHWARK where thirty vestrymen governed 1800 householders.”   

ELIZABETH'S WILL can be found in Abstracts of Wills in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury at Somerset House ... page 418.   She lived a long life, being a great-grandmother when she died in 1620.

In 1617, Christopher Woodward donated wainscoting for the chancel of the parish church in Lambeth, and in 1621 he donated a “frame” to be constructed about the communion table.   According to Featley, who wrote about it in the 1640's, "WOODWARD in addition to bearing some of the associated costs [of the communion table] had as churchwarden taken it upon himself to move it 'down to the middle of the chancel,' from the east end of the church.    There follows some accounts of an inconvenience this caused, and subsequent re-moving of the table.
