From Ian Caldwell (Dec 2001): William Gregory (d.1765), son of William Gregory and Elizabeth Geers, married Susannah Brydges of Tyberton Court, Hereford, daughter of William Brydges Esq. and Susannah Noel, daughter an co-heir of Edward Noel of the Inner Temple, who died 1st April 1723. William Brydges was Sergeant at Law and Justice of Assize in 1734, the second son of Marshall Brydges of Tyberton, also a Judge of the South Wales Circuit in the reign of Queen Anne. William Brydges had 8 children and Susannah was the eldest daughter. He outlived his son-in-law, dying on 12th October 1786 aged 73. William Gregory was also a Sergeant-at -Law and was the owner of his hereditary estates for a period of 63 years, his father having died when he was only 2. He had his residence in Hereford and, when elderly, was excused from discharging his duties as Sheriff owing to his enfeebled health. His epitaph reads "He was a pious and devout Christian, uniform in the practice of every virtue. Amiable in his Temper, Cheerful in his Disposition, Steady in his Principles, Sincere in his Friendships. Supported by a good Conscience, he bore a tedious illness, with exemplary Patience, and an entire Submission to the divine Will. He departed this life Nov17th 1765 aged 65. He married Susannah, the eldest daughter of Wm.Bridges Esq., Sergeant at Law, by whom he had nine children. His disconsolate Widow caused this Monument to be erected to the Memory of the best of Husbands".
