Not sure where I got his parents from, although they would be consistent with his desciption in VCH as ?John Young of Worcester? assuming that Worcester means Worcestershire.
Young, or Yonge, of Croome D'Abitot. The pedigree of this family is given in the Harl. MS. 1566; it commences with John Yonge, of Croome, living in the reign of Henry VII., who married Anne, daughter of Richard ...
(The heraldry of Worcestershire. 1873.)
In the reign of Henry VII, Croome D'Abitot came into the possession of John Young ; and from him it was sometimes called Young's Croome.
(An historical and descriptive account of Croome D'Abitot, the seat ...William Dean (gardener.) 1824. Page 10)
It seems probable that these three portions of the manor and advowson of Croome D'Abitôt were purchased by John Young of Worcester about 1486, when he presented alone to the church, being styled John Young of Croome D'Abitôt in the Visitation of 1569.
This property was sometimes called Young's Croome, and in 1523 John's son Humphrey held the patronage of the church jointly with Simon Rice, who at that date owned the chief portion of the manor (see above), and Edward Young, the son of Humphrey, held it in 1545 with Rice's successor, Simon Clare. In 1549 Edward Young quitclaimed his interest in the manor to Conan Richardson, probably as security for a debt of £300. Four years later William Sheldon, Edward Grevill and Anthony Ashfield leased the manor for sixty years to Edward Young, and he (as stated above) in the following year obtained a lease of the Clares' part of the manor from Simon Clare. After this time the descent of Young's Croome has not been traced.
