Biography* She was bur. in Feckenham, June 2, 1612, as 'Ursula, the weiffe of John Culpep' Esquier.' Her recital on the MI. in Hollingbourne as dau. of Thomas Woodcock is a confusion of her father with her brother. She was bapt. in St. Lawrence Jewry, London, January 27, 1565/6, as 'Ursula, dau. of Ralph Woodcock;' and the will of that Ralph, dated September 1, 1580 (P.C.C. Windsor, 47), reciting himself to be 'citizen and Alderman of London,' describes her as 'my daughter Ursula, now wife of Solomon Pordage.' The identification is completed by an inquisition held at East Greenwich, October 23, 1599 (Chancery inq. p.m., Series 11, 256; 38), which found that Solomon Pordage of Rodmersharn had died September 12, 1599, having made a settlement on the occasion of his m. in 1581 with Ursula, dau. of Ralph Woodcock. Solomon Pordage's will (P.C.C. Kidd, 74) commended his wife to his kinsman, William Stede of Harrietsham, and it was through the Stedes that the widow Pordage met her second husband.
