My Grandfather was John Henry Puddephatt born in Bellingdon, Chesham on 19th Sept.1875. His father was Walter Puddephatt b 15 May 1854 and Walter's father was Matthew Puddephatt who married Elizabeth Glenister. I must confess that I don't know of a Richard but as the Puddephatts had large families it is quite possible that there is a link. I haven't as yet looked at Matthews siblings and their families. Our Matthew had quite a few acres of land.
I have just discovered my Grandmother under the name Puddlephot.
