  • Little is known of the personal or domestic history of the family, and that little commences with the first Sir Lancelot. He seems to have been, at one time, at variance with his father, but the cause of this does not appear. He married Margaret, the only child and heiress of Henry Bromflete, Lord Vescy, and widow of John, Lord Clifford, who fell at Ferry Bridge, in 1461, at the early age of twenty-six, and from the terms of Inq. P.M., held on Lord Vescy in 1470, Margaret, then the wife of Sir Lancelot Threlkeld, must have been very young, although the mother of two children, at the death of her first husband. If she brought an accession of fortune and of consequence to her second lord it was not unaccompanied by care, for her sons had to be secreted from the vengeance of the Yorkist faction. Lord Clifford having incurred their special hatred by slaying the young Earl of Rutland, whom they always described as a child compared with his adversary, whereas there was, after all, no great disparity of age between the two.
  • http://www.archive.org/stream/transactionvol9no2cumb#page/311/mode/1up
  • That Sir Lancelot strove not unsuccessfully to preserve the lives of his stepsons, the not unworthy words of Wordsworth bear record—
    • " Give Sir Lancelot Threlkeld praise,
    • Hear it good man old in days,
    • Thou tree of covert and of rest
    • For this young bird that was distrest ;
    • Among thy branches safe he lay,
    • And he was free to sport and play
    • When falcons were abroad for prey."
  • It is a curious fact, which one cannot help associating; with Sir Lancelot and the concealment of the young Cliffords, that there is a secret chamber or nook at Yanwath Hall, only discovered within the last few years. Sir Lancelot had three sons ; Lancelot his successor, James or John, of whom nothing seems to be known, and Christopher, of whom more hereafter. He had also four daughters ; Margaret, who married Sir Christopher Moresby ; Johan, who became the wife of Sir Brian Stapleton ; Anne, who married Sir Hugh Lowther ; and Elizabeth. Sir Lancelot probably died before 1492. He was buried in Crosby Ravensworth church, where the Arms of Threlkeld, impaling the cross of the Vescys and the bend fleury of the Bromfletes in a manner not strictly in accordance with the rules of heraldry, may be seen on the massive tomb, in the vault beneath which, Sept. 20, 1745, was also laid Robert Lowther, the eccentric and tyrannical father of the sole Earl of Lonsdale of the first creation, who, in both characteristics far exceeded the paternal example.
  • His wife no doubt survived him, for she died at her ancestral estate in Londesborough, April 14, 1493.
  • http://www.archive.org/stream/transactionvol9no2cumb#page/312/mode/1up
  • The eldest son of Sir Lancelot, and the second of that name, married firstly, Elyn Radclyffe, as I find briefly stated in a pedigree attached to my papers on the Lowther House, in Penrith. Writing at Naples, without being able to refer to my authority, I cannot give my proofs, but I am sure the statement is correct. I think she would be the mother of his children. His second marriage was, like his father's, calculated to bring eclat and a good dowry to his house, for Margaret was the illegitimate daughter of Richard Neville, the great Earl of Warwick, and widow of Richard Hudleston, K.B., eldest son of Sir John Hudleston, of Millom, whom he predeceased. By Sir Richard she had a son and two daughters. Sir Lancelot was created a Knight of the Bath at the marriage of Arthur, Prince of Wales, in 1501 ; he was also one of the escort of the Princess Margaret when she went to Scotland to marry King James the IV. of that kingdom. I am unable to state when he or his second wife died, or where they were buried ; but he was dead before 1513, the date of the partition deed of his estate amongst his three daughters. Elizabeth, who had married James Pickering, took Crosby Ravensworth ; Winifred, who married William Pickering, the brother of James, (both younger sons of Anne, the heiress of Sir Christopher Moresby by their aunt Margaret Threlkeld, which Anne had married Sir James Pickering of Killington and Winderwath,) took Threlkeld ; and Grace, the eldest daughter, whom Dugdale and some other genealogists erroneously call Sarah, brought her husband, Thomas Dudley, the beautiful domain of Yanwath, the descent of which I propose to follow till it became merged in the wide-spreading possessions of the Lowther family.
  • I forbear attempting to connect any special members of the family of Threlkeld with the various dates at which Yanwath Hall was built, added to, or altered. The able paper by Dr. Taylor in the first Vol. of our Transactions, gives the periods approximately from the Architectural features ; but I must protest against the statements made in Parker's Domestic Architecture, Vol. II, p. 216, where it is asserted that " the original structure is believed to have been built by John de Sutton who married Margaret, heiress of the De Somerie family, in 1322."

  • Now the Suttons or Dudleys, for the younger branches chose to take the title as a surname, had no connection with Westmerland or Cumberland until Edmund Sutton, eldest son of John, 4th Baron Dudley, married to his second wife, Maud daughter of Thomas, 8th Baron Clifford (and sister of John, 9th Lord, first husband of the Bromflete heiress), and it was the marriage of Thomas, son of this Edmund and Maud, with Grace Threlkeld that brought about the Yanwath connection soon after 1500.
  • I have no wish to disparage a very valuable work, but probably this utterly baseless assertion was foisted upon the unsuspecting Parker by the same individual who led him to insert a statement in Vol. II. p. 225, that "in the first year of Edward II, Licences were granted to Willelmus de Dacre and Richardus le Brun to crenellate their houses, both described as situated at Dunmalloch, in the Marches of Cumberland, (Dunmalloch in Marchibus). There seems good reason to believe that these two houses are Dacre Castle and Brougham Hall, which are within a few miles of each other, and both near to a hill called Dunmaloch." There is no reason to believe any such erroneous assertion. There were three licences to crenellate granted in the first year of Edward II. One was to Robert de Tylliol for mansum suum at Scaleby ; another to Willelmus de Dacre for mansum suum near Dunmalloght, which refers clearly to Dacre Castle ; and the other to Richardus le Brun for mansum suum at Drombogh which is undoubtedly Drumbrugh, and has no reference whatever to Brougham Hall which, it is well known, has every claim to beauty of site and architecture, but none to antiquity. I do not know at what degree of fortification a licence to crenellate became necessary ; certainly Pele Towers in the Border districts were exempt; but Yanwath had a fortified area, and was situated at a most important ford, and yet it is not amongst those enumerated in Parker's List.

  • With regard to Threlkeld Hall, there are doubts about its actual site, the very stones having been taken away.
  • The Hall of Crosby Ravensworth still stands, though many of its original features have vanished ; enough, however, I think, yet remain to enable a well-qualified member of our Society to give us an interesting article on a dwelling in which Sir Lancelot Threlkeld took great delight ; for, in the oft-repeated quotation, he was wont to say he had " three noble houses ; one for pleasure, Crosby in Westmorland, where he had a park full of deer ; one for profit and warmth, wherein to reside in winter, namely, Yanwith, nigh Penrith ; and the third, Threlkeld, well stocked with tenants to go to the wars."
  • Over the main entrance of Crosby Ravensworth Hall are eight Coats of Arms :
  • 1st. A Lion rampant, for Pickering.
  • 2nd. 3 Chaplets, for Lascells of Eskrigg.
  • 3rd. A Cross, with a Cinquefoil in the 1st quarter, for Moresby.
  • 4th. Party per fess 6 Martlets, counterchanged, for Fenwick.
  • 5th. A Lion rampant, debruised with a bend, for Tilliol.
  • 6th. A Cross, probably for Vesci (?)
  • 7th. A Lion rampant, for (?)
  • 8th. A Maunch, for Threlkeld.
    • Crest a Paw (?) displayed.
    • Supporters, dexter a Lion, sinister a Unicorn.
  • The singular way in which Crosby Ravensworth passed from Sir John Lowther, father to the 1st Bart., who had purchased it from the last of the Pickerings, and ultimately reverted to the house of Lowther, is worthy of notice. Sir John gave it as a marriage portion to his daughter Frances, the wife of John Dodsworth ; after several transfers, it was bought by Robert Lowther, a scion of the house, whose son became, on failure of the stem, the head of the family, and ever since it has formed a portion of their accumulated estates.

THE THRELKELDS OF ESTHORPE, YORKSHIRE, AND PENSHER, DURHAM.

  • Of James Threlkeld (or John, as he is called in the Rawlinson Manuscript Pedigree in the Bodleian Library), the second son of the first Sir Lancelot Threlkeld and his wife the Vescy heiress, I find no record beyond the doubtful name.
  • Christopher, the third son, married Johan, heiress of John Carliell, and acquired with her estates in both Yorkshire and Durham, and their male line was continued, as is indicated in the pedigree, to the third generation, but I find nothing to characterize these descendants individually. The outline of life sketched by Barry Cornwall might have been the moan of this offshoot —
    • " We are born, we laugh, we weep,
    • We love, we droop, we die ;
    • Ah! wherefore do we laugh or weep ?
    • Why do we live or die ?
    • Who knows that secret deep ?
    • Alas ! not I."
  • 'Christopher Thirlkeld' 4th Bp. Sherwood, 1486-7), Jan. 10. Inq. at Bishop Auckland after the death of John Carlile. Johan aged 21 wife of Christopher Thirlkeld is his daughter and next heir.

  • A branch of the Dudleys lived at Yeanwith, in cumberland.* Thomas Dudley, younger son of Edmund Dudley, and half brother of Edward, (second) Baron Dudley, and nephew of William, Bishop of Durnham, married Grace, daughter and co-heir of Sir Launcelot Threlkeld, of Threlkeld, in Co. Cumberland, and had the manor of Yeanwith by his marriage; he died in 1530. Among other issue, he had John Dudley, Lord of the Manor of Stoke Newington, near London, married to a rich heiress, Elizabeth, daughter of John Gardiner, of Grove Place, in Co. Bucks. This John Dudley was in high favor with Queen Elizabeth; he died in 1580, and was buried in the Church at Stoke Newington, where a handsome monument was erected, and is still to be seen in fine preservation.* In Nichols's Bibliotheca Toptgraphica Britannica, is a history of Stoke Newington, containing the following account: --
  • "In the chancel is a handsome monument fixed against the south wall, consisting of pillars of different marbles, forming two compartments, in one of which kneels a gentleman with a helmet behind him, and in the other, facing him, a lady with a daughter behind her; over him is inscribed --
