About Grace Hatfeild

Hatfeild Hall

Gervase Hatfeild, son of Henry of Wilford ... appears to have been the first who came to Hatfeild Hall at Stanley. On one of the tablets he is described thus :-Gervase Hatfeild, of Stanley, son and heir of Henry, married Grace, daughter and sole heir of Edward Savile, of Midgley, alias Stanley Hall, Esq., descended from Sir John Saville, of Thornholl, Kt. Built this house, Anno 1608.” Arms of Saville, and Hatfeild above. On one of the coloured squares Gervase is again mentioned with a slightly different inscription:- “Gervase Hatfeld, Esq., son of Henry, Married Grace, sole daughter and at length heir of Edward Saville, of Midgley, Esq. By her he had John and others. Built Hatfeild Hall on the site of Woodhall in Stanley. Anno Dom 1598.” It is difficult to say which of the two dates is correct, but Gervase Hatfeild is entered in the earliest Wakefield Church registers.

John, as son of “Jarvis” Hatefeild, was baptised September 1602. John Savile resided at Midgley, alias Stanley Hall. His son Edward married Catherine, daughter of Alverey Copley, Esq., of Batley, on 22nd November 1574, and by her had Grace, only daughter."
