Wyndham, Wadham -1736)

Wadham Wyndham, of St Edmund's College, Salisbury, was the fourth son of Sir Wadham Wyndham of Norrington in Wiltshire, and Barbara, daughter of Sir George Clarke of Watford in Northamptonshire. His father was the ninth son of Sir John Wyndham of Orchard Wyndham in Somerset and Joan, daughter of Sir Henry Portman of Orchard Portman. He married, 23 June 1662, Sarah, daughter of William Hearst of Canterbury. In 1657, his father became owner of the house at Salisbury known as St Edmund's College, which he left in his will to Wadham in 1668. The library of Wadham Wyndham (including that of Henry Penruddocke Wyndham) was sold at auction by Sotheby, Wilkinson & Hodge 9 April 1872. Henry Penruddocke Wyndham was the grandson of Wadham and Sarah Wyndham. Clements's conjecture that these are the stamps of Thomas Wyndham, the son of Thomas Wyndham of Hawkchurch in Dorset must be deemed doubtful, given the presence of Wadham Wyndham's bookplate in The history of the life of Edward II.
