  • Notes 
    • Robert Young, son and heir of Sir John, was born on 1st July, 1570. His grandfather John Wadham, the father of Dame Joan, his mother, in his will dated 1st April, 1577, mentions all the children of "my son Sir John Yonge,"- Robert, Jane, and Margaret Younge.
      On attaining the age of 21 years in 1591, he proved his father's will, and afterwards entered into possession of his father's real estates, except the Manor of Hazelbury and the Advowson of the Rectory of Abbotsbury, which Sir John in his will states he had purchased to his wife in redemption of her jointure, and which Sir Robert inherited after his mother's death.
      When knighted in April 1604 he was living in Somersetshire. Earlier he was of Haselbury, Wiltshire. Robert Younge's lifestyle was dissolute and resulted in him mortgaging family property in the 1590s and being forced to sell it in 1603.
      He may have been twice married.
      His half-sister, Ann Bridgman, of Badminton Magna, Gloucester, widow, nee Strangwayes, in her will dated 10 th February, 1606, names "Elizabeth Young, daughter of Sir Robert Young by his first wife." She also names Peregrine Young, son of my brother, Sir Robert Young, and also Nicholas Young, son of Sir Robert Young. This difference of description between Elizabeth and her brothers seems to imply children by differnt mothers.

      No will of him, nor of his sons Nicholas or Peregrine have been found to date. Peregrine Young, son of Sir Robert, married Theophila, daughter of John Butcher, or Bowcher, Alderman of Bristol, and widow of a Thrupp. He is named in the will of John Bowcher in 1620.
