  • Note that sources indicate that Richard was born n Ireland.  I don't know the details behind that, but it is interesting that he established the Le Strange line in Ireland.

    Eric Winstone of New South Wales, Australia, contributed this information about Richard, son of Thomas Le Strange;
    "My daughter-in-law's maiden name is L'Estrange, she is descendant from Sir Thomas le Strange (1493-1545) his second eldest son Richard, went to Ireland sometime between 1531 and 1545, and started the L'Estrange family there, living initially at Rosscommon and finally at Moystown and Kilcummin in Kings Co."

    The Familypedia article on Richard's father comments on Richard's founding  of the Irish branch of the family.

    Nicholas succeded to his father's titles and distributed the estate to his brothers.

    "[Sir Thomas Le Strange's] health begun deteriorating at Christmas time 1540, with kidney stones and made him bedridden for weeks. ... a recurrence two years later in 1545 ended his life suddenly. Aged about 51, his will was still incomplete and his natural heir, Sir Nicholas, succeeded him and executed his grants to his brothers in 1547, one of whom was Richard who founded the Irish Moystown Branch."
