Subject: Bedford Dudleys
> I was pleased to find your website. Since you said on the site to email you if related to ANY Dudleys in Bedford, I ventured to try. I am trying to find information on Roger Dudley who married Susanna THORNE [F15113] on 8 JUN 1575 at Lidlington, Bedford, England. In fact, this marriage record in Bedford is the only solid thing I can find about Roger. That makes me think that the next step would be to investigate further in Bedford. Do you have any suggestions. I know many better researchers than I have tackled this same problem, but this is my attempt. I am inclosing what I have below so you will know what state my research is in and where I am stuck.

Capt Dudley's marriage to Susan is the ONLY reference in Bedford there is. It is supposed by some that Capt was hiding (for whatever reason..there are many) in Bedford. There is no death date recorded there, and no other records currently exist.
Sorry I could not be of more help.
