Generation 1: Richard Of Newport1 O'Dell was born 1490 in England. He married Catherine Mangus. Notes for Richard Of Newport O'Dell: BIOGRAPHY The following information from Andrea O'Dell;,07/30/04: Early Odells from England 1400-1600:For listers interested in the Royal Ancestery of the O'Dells, I'll share what I have soon, and it's quite lengethy. The Royal ancestery is very disputed, however. There are many published accounts authenticating it - which I'll share -- and a few published accounts which refute it (which I'll also share). I'm leaning toward the royal ancestery being legitimate.
