About Barbara Babthorpe

Barbara Constable was born around 1525, the daughter of Sir Robert Constable and Catherine (née Manners).

She married William Babthorpe around 1541 and died before 1564. William married his second wife, Frances Dawney that year.

The 1541 will of her grandfather Marmaduke Constable mentions a marriage made between Mr. Babthorpe and Barbara, daughter of his son Robert Constable.

William died in 1581 and died intestate (but see note below). A grant of letters of administration was made at the Prerogative Court of York on 8 June 1581.

T. Burton, The History and Antiquities of the Parish of Hemingbrough in the County of York, (1888) p.314, states that “Sir William, died in 1581, leaving a will, which does not now exist, in which he desired to be buried in his chapel at Hemingbrough, near the body of Barbara his wife.”
