Notes for Sir Andrew WINDSOR 1st Baron Windsor
Andrew Windsor, 1st Baron Windsor (1467–1543) was an English nobleman, MP and Keeper of the Wardrobe.
He was the eldest surviving son of Thomas Windsor of Stanwell (descendant of Margaret de Bohun, Countess of Devon) and Elizabeth Andrews and entered the Middle Temple. He became a JP of several counties and sat on many commissions. He was made Keeper of the wardrobe for life in 1506 and invested Knight of the Bath in 1509.

He was elected as Member of Parliament for Cricklade in 1510 and as knight of the shire for Buckinghamshire in 1529. He was created Baron Windsor in 1529.[1]

He inherited the manor of Stanwell in Middlesex. In 1542, during a visit by King Henry VIII, he was obliged to surrender the manor to the crown. In return he was offered the lands of Tardebigge and the seat of Hewell Grange in modern Worcestershire.

He died soon afterwards in 1543 and was buried at Hounslow. He had married Elizabeth, the daughter of William Blount, with whom he had four sons, including his eldest son and heir, George Windsor, who married Ursula de Vere and predeceased his father in 1520, Thomas and William, and three daughters. William Windsor (1542–1558) succeeded him as the 2nd Baron. His daughter Eleanor was married first to Ralph, Baron Scrope of Masham, She was widowed and, sometime before 1524, married Sir Edward Nevill, brother of George Nevill, 5th Baron Bergavenny.[2] Lord Windsor's other daughter, Edith, married George Ludlow[3] and became ancestress of William Henry Harrison,[4] 9th President of the U.S.A.
