About Grace Wentworth

  • The Wentworth genealogy, comprising the origin of the name, the family in England, and a particular account of Elder William Wentworth, the emigrant, and of his descendants (1870)
  • http://www.archive.org/stream/wentworthgenealo01inwent#page/n162/mode/1up
  • (19) Sir Thomas Wentworth, who was knighted for his bravery at the battle of Spurs, 16 August, 1513. It will be seen that down to this period, the successors to the estate of Wentworth-Woodhouse were almost invariably only sons, and as invariably married heiresses or co-heiresses.
  • By this, time, therefore, the wealth of this family had become enormous, as may be judged by the fact, that this Sir Thomas bore the sobriquet of "Golden Thomas." He paid at one time a heavy fine to be excused from accepting the Order of the Bath, and in 1528 abtained a license* from Henry VIII. to remain covered in the royal presence. The reason alleged was his infirmity arising from old age. But, as he lived twenty years longer, (he died 5 Dec., 1548,) the presumption is, that the license was purchased at a great price for the purpose of gratifying a whim or some feeling of personal pride. He married Beatrix, daughter of Sir Richard Woodruff, Kt., of Woolley, in Yorkshire, and widow of John Drax, Esq., of Woodhull, by whom he had five sons and three daughters, viz: William, Gervase, Michael, Thomas, Bryan, Elizabeth, Isabel, and Beatrice.

    • Thomas was of Scoreby, in Yorkshire, and married Grace, daughter of John Gascoigne, Esq., of Lasingcroft, in Yorkshire, by whom he had an only son, Thomas, and three daughters, Mary, Grace, and Elizabeth.
