      From "The Family of Milton", by Hugh M. Milton: Richard Milton, son ofHenry and Agnes, was a loyal Pappist and throughout his life resisted the efforts to establish the Church of England. After Elizabeth "I" came to the throne, she strengthened the Church of England by insisting that people of all faiths attend ecumenical services. Attendance was mandatory, and Richard refused and was convicted and fined sixty pounds on two occasions in 1601 as a recusant (a recusant being one who refuse to obey an order or law). Richard's wife, Ellen, had apparently been married previously as record shows her as Jeffreys; nee Bradshaw, Caston, Haughton. The name Jeffreys appears twice in the Milton geology. First, a Ellen Jeffreys had daughter Sarah who became the wife of John (Scriviner) Milton, and secondly, a Ellen Jeffreys who showed to her son-in-law, John the poet, the Haughton Coat of Arms which caused the Milton's to refer to two such designs in Thier Coat of Arms. In the parish records of ALLHOLLOWS, BREAD STREET, LONDON, there appears this entry: The 22d of Feb AD 1610, was buried in this parish Mrs. Ellen J. Jeffries, the mother of Mr. John Milton's wife." (Ref. 4 p.30)

      (This is confusing, but I will try to explain my theory. In a previous marriage of Ellen's, Sarah was born, which made her a step sister to John (whom he latter married). Which would mean Richard was previously married and of this marriage were born his four children. There are records in England of a Richard Milton married to Elizabeth Milton. This is all speculation.)

      Richard Milton was a substantial man reportedly and under-ranger in the Shotover Forest. He is the only person recorded as being a recusant in Oxfordshire. After 1601 there is nothing recorded of Richard Milton. It is believed that he was buried at Stanton -- Saint -- John.
