Richard Lygon, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Richard Lygon might describe his life as follows.

The eldest son of Thomas Lygon, I inherited all the Lygon estates. I was fortunate to marry Anne de Beauchamp, coheir of Richard Beauchamp of Powyck. When he died without male heirs about 1502, all the Beauchamp property became mine, too. I now owned manors at Madresfield, Warmedon, Bracy’s Leigh, Holfast, and Farley. Warmedon near Worcester in Worcestershire, now known as Warndon, was built in 900. 
Anne and I were anticipating the birth of the first of our eight children about the same year Christopher Columbus discovered the New World.
Because I outlived my father only a few years, not many family records have my name in them. I was serving as justice of the peace in Worcester in 1509 and 1510.
I died 1 May 1512 at Madresfield and Anne, 22 July 1534.
