Richard is the son of William Atte Wode and Juliana Unknown.

Richard became a Sergeant at Arms to King Edward III.

This is likely the same Richard atte Wode mentioned, in 1341, in a petition to the King where he "request letters be sent to the abbot of Ramsey (in Huntingdonshire) commanding him to allow them to live in that country in peace, and to return to them their tenements and lands which he has ousted them from and falsely purchased, and make redress to them for the trespasses done to them by his people." This petition names his wife as Alice.[1]

In 1345, Richard, as a King's Sergeant-at-arms, is mentioned in the London Letter Books[2] in an order to move the London fleet to he Isle of Wight in preparation for the invasion of France during the 1346 campaign in the Hundred Years' War.

Sir William and both of his sons (Geoffrey and Richard) accompanied the army on their invasion of France.
