About Sir Richard Yorke, Lord Mayor of York

Lord Mayor of York, 1469, and Merchant of the Staple. Knighted by Henry VII, 1487.

He appears to be the founder of Yorke of Gowthwaite. http://ingilbyhistory.ripleycastle.co.uk/ingilby_3/YORKE%20of%20Gowthwaite.pdf

The Mauleverers were a prominent North Yorkshire family, neighbors of the Mallorys, Plumptons, Conyerses, Constables, Tempests, and so forth. It must have been a feather in Richard Yorke's cap to get to marry even a junior daughter of the house.
