Stephen Agard, Esq. of Broughton, Northamptonshire, was born about 1513 and died shortly before 13 Oct 1562, when he was buried in Broughton. He was probably the second born surviving son of George Agard (~1486? – 1522) and his wife, Elizabeth Middlemore (~1487? – ?). The family consisted of three surviving children that I know of: eldest son John, Stephen, and, I would argue, their sister, Katherine. As Stephen held Broughton by 1546, I am guessing that John died young without surviving heirs.
