[1109] "Notes"
Walter K. Watkins
NEHGR v64, p86 (Jan 1910)
"The Cudworths were an old Lancashire family descended from John Cudworth of Werueth, who
had married Margery, daughter of Richard Oldham, lord of the manor of Oldham. Their great-
great-great-grandson, Ralph Cudworth of Werneth Hall, married Jane daughter of Aurthur
Ashton of Rochdale. A second son of this union was Rev. Ralph Cudworth, who was a Fellow
of Emmanuel College, Cambridge."
