About Elizabeth Radcliffe

Lancelot Threlkeld's children were most likely by his wife Elizabeth Ratcliff although some speculate that their mother was Margaret Neville. (see below: Margaret Neville "had no issue")

Three daughters, co heirs of Lancelot Threkeld:

  • a. Elizabeth Threlkeld or Thirkeld m. James Pickering (son of Sir James by Anne Moreseby)
  • b. Grace Threlkeld or Thirkeld m. Thomas Dudley (aka Sutton)
  • c. Winifred Threlkeld or Thirkeld m. William Pickering (son of Sir James by Anne Moreseby)

“Sir Lancelot Threlkeld had three daughters, co-heiresses; one was married to Thomas Dudley, Esq., who with her received Yanwath; the other two married two brothers, sons of Sir Christopher Pickering of Killington, Knight, by his wife Anne, who was daughter and sole heiress of Sir Christopher Moresby, Knight.”

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.
