Commoners reports that John was ancestor of Sir Ralph Woodforde, Bart. BEB1841 Woodford of Carleby provides the following information, starting with the following Matthew. The dates indicate that he was probably son rather than grandson of John but, if that was the case, this makes it strange that the connection is not more clearly spelt out in BEB1841 and/or Commoners.
