|Father*||Dr. Martin Culpeper of Feckenham in Astwood, co. Worc. (1540 - c 9 Oct 1605)|
|Mother*||Lettice Clarke (s 1560 - )|
|Birth*||1581||Stephen was born in 1581.|
|Death*||13 Jul 1611||He died on 13 Jul 1611.|
|Biography*||The testimonies for him are the mention in his father's will of 'my Son Sir Stephen C;' his own will (P.C.C. Wood, 62) in which he describes himself as 'Stephen C. of Campden, co. Glouc., Knight;' and the entry of his burial in Feckenham, July 13, 1611, as 'Sr. Steaven Culpep, Knyght.' Neither Metcalfe, Nichols nor Shaw records his knighthood.|
That he m. appears from the mention in his will of 'my wife, Elizabeth, ' and the probate of that instrument by 'Dame Elizabeth C., relict and executrix' (who is not otherwise identified), but it does not appear that he left issue. Not only is the reference to him in his father's will qualified 'if he have issue a son,' but his own will neither names nor makes provision for any children. That will was, however, dated July 11, 1606, and so it is not conclusive against subsequent issue. That there was no male issue in any event appears conclusively by the fact that immediately after Stephen's death, John Culpeper entered into possession of Astwood in pursuance of the provision of the will of Dr. Martin Culpeper, contingent upon Stephen's death s.p.m.
