  • William de Greystoke, 2nd Baron Greystoke, (6 January 1321 – 10 July 1359) was an English peer and landowner.[1]
  • Greystoke was the son of Ralph de Greystoke, 1st Baron Greystoke, and his wife Alice, daughter of Hugh, Lord Audley.[1] He was born at the family home in Grimthorpe, on 6 January 1321.[1] Greystoke's father died while he was still a child and he became a ward of his mother's second husband, Ralph Neville, 2nd Baron Neville de Raby,[2] until he reached his majority in 1342.[1]
  • .... etc.
  • His first wife was Lucy de Lucie,[3] daughter of Thomas, Baron Lucy,[4] but the marriage was childless,[2] and they divorced.[3] During this time, his stepfather, Ralph Neville, unsuccessfully proposed that Greystoke should name his half-brothers, Ralph, Robert, and William Neville, as his heirs.[2] Greystoke married, for a second time, to Joane, daughter of Lord Fitzhugh, by whom he had four children; Ralph, his heir, Robert, William and Alice.[3]
  • In October 1353, Greystoke was given permission to crenellate 'his dwelling place', which would later become known as Greystoke Castle.[5] He was also responsible for renovations on Morpeth Castle which he also owned.[5]
  • Greystoke died on 10 July 1359, at Brancepeth Castle, the seat of his step-father,[4] and was buried in the parish church of St. Andrew's in Greystoke, Cumbria,[1] with a mass conducted by Gilbert de Welton, Bishop of Carlisle.[4] Those who attended his funeral, which took place with 'great pomp and solemnity', included his step-father, and first father-in-law, the guardian to his heir, Ralph, Roger de Clifford, 5th Baron de Clifford,[6] as well as, Henry Scrope, 1st Baron Scrope of Masham, Thomas, Baron Musgrave, and the abbots from the monasteries at Holmcultram and Shap.[4]
