  • Thomas Darcy, 1st Baron Darcy of Darcy or of Temple Hurst, KG, PC, (c. 1467 – 30 June 1537)[1] was an English nobleman, the only son, and heir, of Sir William Darcy (1443 – 30 May 1488) and his wife, Euphemia Langton, the daughter of Sir John Langton.[1] Darcy was opposed to the Dissolution of the Monasteries and for his role in the Pilgrimage of Grace, was convicted of high treason for delivering up Pontefract Castle to the rebels.[2] He was executed on Tower Hill 30 June 1537.[3]
  • The Darcy family had held lands in Lincolnshire since the Domesday survey, wherein it appears that one Norman de Areci held thirty lordships in that county by the Conqueror's gift. A little later the name became d'Arci, and finally Darcy. In the reign of Edward III they acquired by marriage other possessions in various counties, among which was the family seat of Templehurst (or Temple Hurst), near Selby in Yorkshire. Sir William Darcy died on 30 May 1488, leaving his son and heir Thomas over twenty-one years of age.[3]
  • He married as his first wife, Dousabella Tempest, (died before 1500),[4][5] daughter and heiress of Sir Richard Tempest of Ribblesdale, North Yorkshire and Mabel, daughter of Walter Strickland.[2] They had three sons and a daughter:[6][7][8]

    • Richard Darcy
    • Sir Arthur Darcy (died 3 Apr 1561) married Mary Carew, daughter of Sir Nicolas Carew.[11] He was knighted in 1523.[12]

  • A letter signed "D. Darcy", believed to have been written by Dousabella to her husband in January 1537,[13] appears to have been written by Dorothy, the wife of George Darcy.[14]
  • He married in or before 1500,[4][5] Edith Sandys, (died 22 August 1529),[2][15] daughter of Sir William Sandys and Elizabeth Cheney and widow of Ralph, lord Neville, (died 1498), son of Ralph Neville, 3rd Earl of Westmorland.[2][3] *They had a daughter:[6]
    • Elizabeth Darcy (c. 1501 – ) married 26 Apr 1514, Sir Marmaduke Constable (c.1498 – 20 Apr 1560)[6][16][17]
  • Through this marriage, Darcy became stepfather to Ralph Neville, 4th Earl of Westmorland.[1]
