Edward 5th Lord Dudley LNAB Sutton or Dudley?

+8 votes
This issue seems to radiate throughout this family, but specifically for Edward was his and legitimate children's LNAB Sutton or Dudley?

Cokayne v4 2nd ed. says "Sutton, or Dudley", which is hard to put in WT.

Similar to the G2G for Fiennes de Clinton - I think for WT purposes they are all LNAB Sutton, OLN Dudley (?)

Thanks Kirk, I would agree that Sutton seems to be the best option for Last Name at Birth (LNAB), based on The Complete Peerage, and also the British History Online has a few examples of where they were summoned to parliament under "Edwardus Sutton dominus Dudley".

Dudley then could be an Other Last Name (OLN).

According to my research and a book I have in my possession, Derek Wilson wrote "The Uncrowned Kings of England, The Black History of the Dudleys and Tudor Throne" pg. 4, "Their family name was Sutton but from the mid-fifteenth century they began to call themselves the Lords of Dudley, Worcestershire after the manor which formed the basis of their power and wealth. Dudley Castle in Worcestershire, the impressive remains of which can still be seen, was begun soon after the conquest, and testifies that these landowners had been men of substance for centuries. The man who may be regarded as the founder of the Dudley greatness was Edmund's grandfather, John, sixth Baron Dudley."
