"Richarde Riches" married "Mrs. Jane Machell" on 13 Dec. 1574 at St. Mary Aldermary Church in London.[1] "Mrs." doesn't mean she was a widow, but rather that she was of the upper class.

Children of Richard Riche baptized at St. Clement Danes, Westminster (per English parish records at familysearch.org):

Penelope, 15 Mar. 1592 (father just listed as "Riche").
Isabella, 30 Jan. 1594.
Scipio, 8 Dec. 1597.

"RICH, Sir NATHANIEL (1585?–1636), merchant adventurer, born about 1585, was probably eldest son of Richard Rich, an illegitimate son of Richard, first baron Rich [q. v.] His mother was daughter of John Machell, sheriff of London."[2]
