(circa July 1525 - 12 October 1528)
     John Ryther was born circa July 1525. He was the son of Thomas Ryther and Agnes le Scrope.
     In Thomas Ryther's will dated 1 July 1527 in Ryther, Yorkshire, John Ryther was named as heir. He was the heir of John Ryther at the Inquisition Post Mortem held in Yorkshire & Lincolnshire on 11 October 1527.

John Ryther

(circa 1175 - before 1 July 1212)
     John Ryther was born circa 1175. He was the son of William Ryther. They was listed on a deed dated between 1192 and 1194 as a witness. William de Riha (brother & heir of William) in 1192 or 1194 gave to Nun Appleton priory a yearly rent of 5 marks for the church of Ryther; and witnessed by John, Gilbert & Hugh, sons of William de Riha, evidently the grantor's sons. The first witness Ralph, archdeacon of Hereford, occurs as a justice of Yorkshire in 1192 and 1194. Early in the reign of Richard I, a controversy about the church of Ryther had ended by a release by the prioress of Nun Appleton of all claim to the advowson, receiving a yearly rent of 5 marks from William de Ryther. The controversy had probably arisen on the succession of William de Ryther the younger, and the charter quoted in the text presumably confirmed the arrangement then made.
John Ryther married Lecia Unknown (Ryther).
     John died before 1 July 1212. William de Rither was succeeded by John his son, who died before 1212, when William de Rither, possibly son of John, granted to Lecia, relict of John de Ryther, 15 markes for her release of dower in the town of Ryther ("Rie"), which she claimed by the endowment of her late husband. He was mentioned in a deed dated 1 July 1212. In Easter term 1212 William put in his place Gilbert de Rie, described as his son & heir, in a plea of dower brought against him by Lecia widow of John de Ria (showing him to have died in his father's lifetime).
Speight states: A third part of the the manor of Ryther was claimed in dower by Lecia, late wife of John de Rie or Ryther, and this lady on her husband's decease had to prove her just dues against the heirs or successors of her husband by entering a writ in the form of a fine at the King's Court at York before the justices in Eyre on 1 July 1212, whereby she yielded all her rights to a third part of the manor of Rie, with apperturnances to William de Rie (no relationship given) on payment to her by the said William of 15 marks of silver. The said William is represented in this suit by Gilbert de Rie, no doubt the one mentioned in the grant of land at Ryther to the canons of Bolton....

John Ryther was also known as John Ryther (the Cofferer) in records. He was born circa 1500. James Ryther in 1591 described him as the son of the sixth son of Willaim Ryther, but the brother of George Ryther, James' grandfather.. He was the son of Nicholas Ryther and Margaret Scrope.

Biography: John Ryther came of an old established Yorkshire family, which took its name from its main seat at Ryther in the West Riding. It is probable that he was the son of Nicholas Ryther, a servant of John de Vere, 13th Earl of Oxford, in 1490, and of Margaret Ryther ‘the elder’, servant to the earl’s widow. In 1537 the countess left the elder Margaret Ryther, ‘for the true and faithful service that she of long continuance hath done to me’, 100 marks, two silver-gilt salts and much linen and tapestry. To her comptroller of household John Ryther she left silver worth £11 6s.8d., to his wife Margaret some linen and bedding, to her goddaughter Elizabeth Ryther £5 and to a younger John Ryther the same sum; Margaret Ryther the elder and John Ryther were among the executors of the will. By her own will of 1542 this Margaret Ryther, then a widow, appointed her son John sole executor: she made bequests of silver and linen to other named relatives and charitable gifts to churches in Wakefield, Yorkshire, and at Castle Hedingham and Earls Colne, Essex, the last two being seats of the De Vere family.3
Nothing is known of Ryther’s early years. Of an age with the 14th Earl, he was doubtless reared to service in the household and may have been the ‘John Rider’ who was a pensioner at Queens’ College, Cambridge from 1517 to 1521. The year 1537, which saw the death of the countess and the birth of Prince Edward, was the occasion of Ryther’s entry into the royal service as well as of his growing employment in public affairs. In 1539 he was commissioned to report to Cromwell on the alleged embezzlement by one of the abbot’s servants of the jewelry of Colchester abbey; it was perhaps as a consequence of this assignment that he himself purchased £25 worth of the abbey’s ‘household stuff’ at the end of that year. The fall of the minister in the following one brought Ryther his first important post: in August 1540 he was appointed receiver of all Cromwell’s forfeited possessions and keeper of his principal house. His fee for this office was upwards of £35 a year plus one per cent of the ‘issues’, and in 1543 he received an additional £200, perhaps as a gratuity on the completion of a long and difficult assignment. The John Ryther who raised a company of eight billmen to serve in the French war of 1544 was probably a namesake, for he himself must have been fully occupied with the day-to-day financing of the expedition as one of the five persons authorized in May to purchase provisions for the army on the strength of bills which the treasurer for the war, Sir Richard Rich, was instructed to honour.4
In 1544 Ryther bought land in Essex from the Earl of Oxford and the crown and in the following year a good deal more in Suffolk, some of which he soon resold. His appointment as cofferer of the Household on Edward VI’s accession was followed by considerable rewards in land and money, including an annuity of 50 marks granted in July 1550. It also brought him a seat in Parliament, the choice being evidently dictated by his own and his family’s long connexion with the earls of Oxford. He owned only a small amount of property in Essex, but the 16th Earl could certainly dispose of at least one of the Colchester seats and Ryther would not have lacked support from the court: he was, for instance, a ‘most especial friend’ of the Protector Somerset’s brother-in-law (Sir) Clement Smith, who named him an executor. In the Commons Ryther presumably looked after the crown’s financial interest, but neither of the bills committed to him, to diswarren common land and to prevent regrating, forestalling and engrossing, was of much consequence.5
Ryther made his nuncupative will on 5 Oct. 1552 and died six days later. He left £100 to each of five named children and provided for the marriage of his two eldest sons to the two daughters of a Worcestershire landowner, John Pritchard, both of whose wardships he had purchased in 1551. Among the executors were his second wife Mary and John Wiseman of Great Canfield. Ryther’s eldest son John was about 19 at the time of his father’s death: in recognition of the dead man’s services to the crown the son was granted his own wardship and marriage as free gifts and in the following reign he was awarded an annuity of £37.6
On the list of Members of the Parliament of 1547 as revised for the final session of January 1552 Ryther’s name is erased and marked ‘mortuus’. As he did not die until the following October, after the Parliament had been dissolved, the emendation must have been made late in 1552 or early in 1553 and is probably to be connected with the nomination of Members to Edward VI’s second Parliament.7

The testator’s mother, Margaret Ryther (d.1542?), had been for many years in the service of Elizabeth (nee Scrope) Beaumont de Vere (d.1537), Countess of Oxford, as evidenced by this bequest in the Countess’ will:
Item, I give and bequeath to Margaret Ryther th’ elder, for the true and faithful service that she of long continuance hath done to me, one hundred marks in ready money, 2 salts of silver and gilt with a cover and a Garter in the midst of them, weighing 26 ounces; item, 2 of my best featherbeds not before bequeathed; item, 4 pair of my best sheets, 2 bolsters, 2 pillows, one long, and 2 mattresses, 2 counterpoints, the one having the pictures of Saint John the Baptist, Saint Peter and Saint Giles of counterfeit arras, used to be laid upon my
bed, the other like unto the same of counterfeit arras; item, 2 pair of fustians; item, all my tappets of tapestry of damask-work, the ground green, with the Garter and my Lord’s arms in them, used to be hanged in my chamber; item, 2 brass pots of 3 gallons, 2 small pans of brass, and one garnish of counterfeit vessel largest of pewter.
For the will of the testator’s mother, Margaret Ryther (d.1542?), see TNA PROB 11/29, ff. 63-4.
According to Higges, the testator’s father had been in the service of John de Vere (1442-1513), 13th Earl of Oxford, although the testator’s father is not mentioned in the latter’s will, and the testator himself had served as controller of the household of the 16th Earl of Oxford. See Higgs, Laquita M., Godliness and Governance in Tudor Colchester (Ann Arbor: University of Michigan Press, 1998), pp. 49-50, available online:
More obviously a protégé of [the 16th Earl of] Oxford than were either [John] Lucas or [Anthony] Stapleton was John Ryther, who served with Lucas in Edward VI’s first Parliament in 1547. There is no indication that Oxford dictated the selection of Lucas and Ryther, but it is quite possible that Oxford, as an active supporter of the Protestant Reformation, wanted the right people elected and used his influence to get them elected.
Ryther’s father had been a servant to the thirteenth earl, and Ryther began his service to the de Veres as comptroller of the household of Elizabeth, dowager countess, and after her death, comptroller of the sixteenth earl’s household. Probably the Oxford connections helped bring Ryther to the office of cofferer of the household of Prince Edward and then of the royal household, but even earlier Ryther would have come to the attention of Colchester when he was appointed by Thomas Cromwell to report on the alleged embezzlement by one of the abbot’s servants of the jewelry of Colchester abbey. Ryther served only in the 1547 Parliament for Colchester, as he died before another Parliament was elected.
It would appear that the testator and his parents were members of the family of Sir Ralph Ryther (b. about 1451, d. 2 October 1520) of Yorkshire, and were thus family connections of Elizabeth (nee Scrope) Beaumont de Vere (d.1537), Countess of Oxford, although the precise relationships have not yet been determined.
Sir Ralph Ryther (b. about 1451, d. 2 October 1520), was the second of the six sons of Sir William Ryther (d. 19 July 1475) and his wife, Eleanor Fitzwilliam, a descendant of Geoffrey Plantagenet (1113-1151). Sir Ralph Ryther married, firstly Katherine, the daughter of Sir Robert Constable of Flamborough, Yorkshire, and by her had two sons, Robert (d.1508?) and Thomas, and a daughter Eleanor. Sir Ralph Ryther married, secondly, Maud Percy, the daughter of Henry Percy, Earl of Northumberland, and by her had a son, Henry, and a daughter, Elizabeth. His status as a powerful member of the Yorkshire gentry was confirmed by the marriages he arranged for his children. His elder son, Robert (d.1508?), was contracted to marry Elizabeth, the daughter of Sir William Gascoigne of Gawthorpe and his wife Alice Frognell. They were children, and the marriage terminated with the death of young Robert Ryther, probably around 1508 or so.
Little Elizabeth Gascoigne was then married (by 1510) to Robert Redman (d.1545), the son and heir of Edward Redman, who shared the lordship of Harewood Castle with Sir Ralph Ryther. The younger son, Thomas Ryther, then became his father's heir and a marriage was arranged for him by marriage settlement dated 2 April 1510 with Agnes, one of the younger sisters of Henry, 7th Lord Scrope of Bolton.
