Biography Little is known about Dymoke: he may have practised as a lawyer. He was on a list of Inner Temple Catholics in 1577, though he presumably conformed before being returned to Parliament for Lincoln in 1593 through the influence of his nephew Sir Edward Dymoke, the hereditary champion. He promised to look after the corporation’s interests and agreed not to claim burgess money. Seemingly through the malice of Henry Clinton, 2nd Earl of Lincoln, he became involved in the Earl’s quarrels with Sir Edward Dymoke, and, about 1595, was sued by the Earl in the Star Chamber. In Parliament, Dymoke appears as serving on the committee for the relief of the poor and the punishment of rogues and sturdy beggars on 12 Mar. 1593. He died in 1611. In his will, dated 3 Mar. of that year, he asked to be buried in the church of St. Andrew, Howell. Sir Edward Dymoke was executor.
