About Sir Nicholas de Beke

Birth: 1320 Checkley Staffordshire, England Death: 1369 Staffordshire, England

Nicholas was the son of Sir Robert Beck of Tene. He married Jane, daughter of Rafe Stafford, Knight of the Garter and first Earl of Stafford, and Katherine Hastang. He served in the famous Crecy campaign, and was probably in the great fight of the feudal lord, Ralph, Baron Stafford being attached to the King's division, and it is certain that he took part in the seige of Calais, because he had during its progress letters of attorney dated March 20, 1347, describing him as of the retinue of Ralph, who was abroad in the King's service. In 1359 he was again in the retinue of Ralph, now Earl of Stafford. In 1261, Prince Lionel of Clarence (son of Edward III) was appointed Lieutenant of Ireland and was accompanied thither by a body of men at arms commissioned by Ralph Stafford. Nicholas Beck was a knight with him. He left two daughters, Elizabeth and Margaret.
