Humphrey Radcliffe (Sir)
 
Born: ABT 1509, probably Edgworth, Lancashire, England
Died: 13 Aug 1566
Notes: During the reign of Henry VIII, the Earl of Sussex and his son and a party of friends rode out of London to take part in a tournament. In the village of Kensigton, a girl, Isabel Harvey, who with her father happened to be visiting some friends, leaned out so far in her eagerness to see the gay cavalcade that she droped her glove. Sir Humphrey dipped his lance, impaled the glove, and returned it to her owner. Isabel beauty had cast such a spell upon Sir Humphrey that he contrived toleave his companions. Edmund Harvey and his daughter were about to set off for London, and as the road thence bore an evil reputation, the merchant readily acquiesced in the knight´s (represented himself as a squire in service with Earl of Sussex) suggestion that he should bear them company, and so agreeable did he make himself that when they reached Harvey´s house in Cheapside he received an invitation to come in to supper. Friendship with Isabel soon ripened into love, nor did her father raise any objection when asked to give his consent to their marriage. Isabel Harvey came to her husband a richly dowered bride, but they have been married some time before she learned the fact that her husband was the son, not the servant, of Robert of Sussex, Lord High Chamberlain of England. They settled at Elstow, in Bedfordshire.
