• Background Information: Articles from the Transactions of the Thoroton SocietyThe Family of Willoughby.
Radulphus Bugge, of Nottingham, "the original ancestor of divers good families as in Willoughby on the Wolds may be observed" [as Thoroton, p. 222, tells us] was a wealthy merchant of the staple, and purchased lands, in 1240-41, at Willughby-on-the-Wolds. He was probably buried at St. Peter's, Nottingham. He had two sons, viz., Richard Bugge de Wiluby and Radulphus, father of Richard de Bingham. The former bore for arms, Or, on two bars gules, three water bougets argent, and the de Bingham branch took for arms Or, on a fesse gules, three water bougets ar. This adoption of water bougets as their arms, seems to suggest that they pronounced their name Booge. Richard Bugge's son, as owner of the Willoughby property, became known as Richard de Willubi, Knight (temp. Edw. II.), he also "increased his patrimony exceedingly and was a lawyer and very rich, as by his will made 31 Edw. I. appeareth, wherein he appointed his body to be buried in the Church of All Saints in Willughby before the altar of St Nicholas."- [Thoroton, p. 35]. He died 1325, and a stone effigy, representing a knight in mail armour and his lady, which most probably is his [Godfrey's Churches of Rushcliffe, p. 318; Vide Notts. Visitations, Harleian Society], is still in the chapel of Willoughby Church. He founded, in the year 1304, a chantry at St. Peter's "for the soul of Richard Bugge, his father, and of all the faithful dead" [Calender Patent Rolls, 1301-1307].
