From the New England Historical and Genealogical Record, volume 64, 1910, page 86, in the section entitled “Notes” by Walter K. Watkins:
The Cudworths were an old Lancashire family descended from John Cudworth of Werneth, who had married Margery, daughter of Richard Oldham, lord of the manor of Oldham. Their great-great-great-grandson, Ralph Cudworth of Werneth Hall, married Jane daughter of Arthur Ashton of Rochdale. A second son by this union was Rev. Ralph Cudworth, who was a Fellow of Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He held the living of Cudworth, near Chard, Somerset, and was rector of Aller, Somerset, 1609, where he died in 1624. He was chaplain of James I, and married a nurse of Henry, Prince of Wales, by the name of Machell.
In Jun 1611 Ralph married Mary Machell (1703) , daughter of Matthew Machell (662) (ca 1542-23 Aug 1593) & Mary Lewknor (ca 1550-), in St Mary Newington, Southwark. Born ca 1582 in Hackney, Middlesex. Mary died in Dec 1634.

From the New England Historical and Genealogical Record, volume 64, 1910, page 86, in the section entitled “Notes”:
On the death of Dr. Cudworth his widow married Rev. John Stoughton of Aldermanbury, London,who also succeeded Cudworth at his death as rector of Aller. He is referred to in the extract from the “Diary of John Rous” (Register, voI. 21, p. 250). Dr. Stoughton’s will is given in Waters’s Gleanings, p. 179. He there mentions two daughters, Jane his wife, and her father John Browne of Frampton, Dorset. Cudworth’s widow must have died between Dec. 1684 and 1635, and Stoughton then married in 1685 a second wife, Jane Browne, who was then the widow of Walter Newborough, rector of Simondsbury, Dorset. After Stoughton’s death she married, in 1659, Thomas Burwell, M.D., of London. Mary, daughter of Dr. Stoughton, was buried at Frampton in 1640, and his widow Jane, then wife of Dr. Burwell, was buried in Frampton Church in 1679.
