Rudolph was born in 1475 in Tamworth, Staffordshire, England. At some point, Rudolph moved to London as he was an alderman (council member) of London. Rudolph married a woman by the name of Elizabeth Pyel who bore him eight sons and three daughters. i."Gentleman" Henry HUDSON born 1500 in Tamworth, Staffordshire, England, and died 1555 in Tamworth, Staffordshire, England. ii.Christopher HUDSON. iii.Edward HUDSON. iv.John HUDSON. v.Thomas HUDSON. He died June 27th, 1530 in London, England and he was placed in a tomb in the Christ Church Greyfriars, Newgate Street, City of London, England. There is evidence that some Hudson families are Saxon in origin, but given that Rudolph Hudson was a member of the aristocracy, he was likely to be of Norman descent.

The oldest known Hudson Coat of Arms consists of Three Lions and the Rampart position with three boars heads as supporting badges. The symbolism of the lions signifies rearing with strength, courage and loyalty as character traits. Three lions on a coat of arms is rare but its signficance is not known. The boars' heads were badges that suggested allegiance to the royal arms of King Richard III. King Richard III utilized boars heads as his identifying badges to signify bravery and perseverance. Possibly, the three lions rampant is significant in identifying with King Richard III also. Richard III died in 1485, when Rudolph would have been about 10 years old. Although he would have been too young to serve under Richard but perhaps his father did. Since Richard was a member of the House of York, it would be consistent with the information about the Hudson family originating in Yorkshire that Rudolph's family would have supported Richard.
