: Wroth of Durance, Wroth Wrothe of Enfield, Wrothe of London, Wroth of Loughton, Wroth of Yongs
The part of the upper section of this page that is in italics was sourced from web sites which, insofar as they identify a source, indicate that it was the IGI. Those early generations should therefore be viewed with caution.
Richard de Wrotham

1. Richard de Wrotham
A. John Wroth or Wrothe, Sheriff of London a 1331
m Margaret de Enfield
i. John Wroth or Wrothe, Mayor of London a 1361
Visitation Middlesex and Visitation Essex start with this John but the latter then misses out the next 2 generations. The next few generations are supported by Visitation Rutland, 1618-9, Durant.

a. William Wroth or Wrothe of Enfield d 1407-8
1 William Wroth or Wrothe of Enfield b c1385
m Avery or Avecia
A John or Robert Wroth or Wrothe of Enfield
Visitation Middlesex & Visitation Rutland identify him as John and his wife as Elizabeth, dau of Roger Lewknor. Visitation Essex identifies him as Robert and his wife as a daughter of Sir Thomas Lewknor. The latter is consistent with Visitation Sussex, Lewknor. We suspect that there is some confusion here given that Visitation Rutland shows the next generations somewhat differently, perhaps indicating that John & Robert were different people. We will review this in due course.

m Susan Stonard dau of Francis or Jacob Stonard or Stoner of Loughton
a. Sir Robert Wroth of Durance and Loughton, Sheriff of Essex d 1614
Although Commoners vol i, Lane of King's Bromley identifies Sir Henry of Durance who married a Maynard as great-grandson of this Robert, we disregard that as, whilst Visitation Middlesex suggests that Robert dsp sb. dsps?, Visitation Essex shows him as having just one child, James dsp, and various web sites including some which focus on the history of Loughton confirm that Sir Robert had only one child who died in infancy. We follow Visitation Kent in showing Sir Henry as Sir Robert's nephew.

A web site on the history of Loughton reports that Loughton passed from the above Sir Robert to his brother John and then to John, son of the former John's brother Henry and then on for another two generations of Johns.

ii. John Wroth of London
a. John Wroth
iii. Thomas Wroth of London d 1610
Visitation Essex identifies this Thomas as married to Margaret, dau of Richard Rich of Loehall shown by Visitation London as wife of his son Thomas, but Visitation Kent identifies him as married to a daughter of Bulman of London whilst Visitation London identifies her as Joane, dau of Thomas Bulman of London. The following is supported by "Abstract of Somersetshire Wills, Etc" which starts with this Thomas, describing him as "of Blenden Hall, in Bexley, Kent", and identifes his wife as ...
m Joanna Bulmer dau/heir of Thomas Bulmer of London
a. Sir Thomas Wroth of Newton Placey & North Petherton dsp 1672
m Margaret Rich dau of Richard Rich of Lee
b. Sir Peter Wroth of Blenden Hall
The pedigree shown by "Abstract of Somersetshire Wills, Etc" is confusing, showing a Sir John as brother of Sir Thomas & Sir Peter with an indication that it was Sir John who was father of the 1st Bart. However, TCB specifically refers to this, infers that the mention of a Sir John was an error, and makes it clear that it was Sir Peter who was father of the 1st Bart by the following Margaret. BEB1841 Wroth of Blenden Hall supports the following but starts with the 1st Bart.
m Margaret Dering dau of Sir Anthony Dering of Pluckley
1 Sir John Wroth, 1st Bart of Blenden Hall b 1626, d c1672
m by 1651 Anne Caulfeild d 1682, dau by Mary King of William not Toby, Lord Caulfeild, widow of Sir Ralph not William Gore & Sir Paul Harris
A Sir John Wroth, 2nd Bart of Blenden Hall bpt 16.11.1653, d c1674/7
m Elizabeth Palmer dau of Col. Peregrine Palmer of Fairfield by Anne, dau of Nathaniel Stephens of Gloucestershire
i John Wroth
BEB1841 identifies the successor to the 2nd Bart as his son John and does not mention a Thomas. TCB reports "An elder brother, John, is sometimes said to have succeeded as the 3d Baronet, and to have d. unm. shortly afterwards, but there seems to be no authentic record of such fact."
ii Sir Thomas Wrothe of South Petherton, Sheriff of Somerset, 3rd Bart b c1674, d 27.06.1721
