Humphrey Adderley 1132
- Born: 1512, Blake Hall, Cheadle, Staffordshire 1365
- Died: 29 July 1598, Weddington Hall, Weddington, Warwickshire aged 86 1365
Of Weddington, Warwickshire. The Adderley family was of considerable importance and antiquity in Staffordshire; it is through this connection that he probably became a groom of the wardrobe of the robes, and later a yeoman of the wardrobe of the robes from about 1530 to about 1570. The royal court had no permanent base and periodically moved on a circuit encompassing Whitehall, Nonsuch, Woodstock, St James's, Somerset Place, Oatlands, Richmond, Greenwich, Hampton Court, and Windsor. This was a journey of some 220 miles (excluding various progresses), and involved dedicated and meticulous planning, for which only a few people were intellectually suited. Adderley's service through the reigns of four monarchs illustrates his exceptional personal qualities which engendered long-lasting trust and discretion.
Humphrey married Anne North.
Humphrey next married Elizabeth Capel, daughter of Richard Capel and Unknown.
