On the pronunciation of Wriothesley, see Akrigg's book on Shakespeare
and Southampton.  He addresses the issue in the first few pages.  And he
thinks it should probably be said: Risely or Rosely, but I don't have
the book in front of me now and might be mis-remembering these details.

Rose Lee, I believe.

William Ringler maintained that "Wriothesley" was pronounced RIZLY (just
like the bear).  He was so knowledgeable about things Elizabethan that I
never asked him how he knew--I didn't dare.

As no doubt everyone has written in: According to Katherine
Duncan-Jones, it is pronounced RISE-LY.

An initiate in that pronunciation myself, (and wondering how in the
world it happened),
