William DACRE

Born: ABT 1542, Anton, Anthorn, Cumberland, England

Died: 2 Oct 1583, Saint Bees, Cumberland, England

Notes: within ten years a double crisis overtook the Grindals of St Bees. Robert Grindal, his wife, and their only surviving son all died within three weeks of each other in 1568. Robert left the farm to his second daughter, Anne. "Her father in his testament willed her in all things to be directed by me", wrote Edmund Grindal, brother of Robert, although the text of Robert's will does not quite bear this out. Contrary to her uncle's wishes, Anne married William Dacre, although she was only eighteen and her father not a year dead. Shortly afterwards, in 1569-70, William joined his cousin Leonard Dacre in the northern rising known as "Dacre's Raid", which started as a struggle with the Howards over the inheritance of Naworth Castle and the barony of Gilsland. The Dacres were defeated and fled, and their lands were forfeited to the Crown. Leonard Dacre died three years later, and William was pardoned and settled down at St Bees. It is likely that at this time Anne and her husband had the inside northwest wall of their house decorated with griffins, supporters of the Dacre arms, and carried out other improvements, mentioned below. The painting is possibly out of the same workshop as another in the house which Thomas Dacre converted out of the west range of Lanercost Priory. William Dacre died in 1583, the same year as Edmund Grindal. Had he lived, he would have been a governor of the grammar school which the Archbishop founded at St Bees. Anne married again, into another gentry family, that of Thomas Wybergh. Although she had issue by Thomas, the Grindal estates in St Bees did not pass to the Wyberghs and thence to the Lowthers. When new leases were granted to the St Bees tenants in 1609 (close to the expiry of the 1560 leases), Anne's eldest child by William Dacre, Eleanor or Helena Dacre, was holding a messuage or fermhold called Grindall's tenement containing three and a quarter oxgangs situate in the town of St Bees, late in the occupation of Thomas Wybergh and sometime of Robert Grindal deceased. The holding had grown since 1560 to 53 or 69 statute acres, but so had others.

Thomas (Christopher) DACRE

Born: ABT 1540

Notes: sheriff of Cumberland in 1565 and 1581-2, a border commissioner, and one of the few border squires described as ‘well affected’ in 1583. His estate was then valued at £300. When his son succeeded to the manor and rectory of Lanercost, together with numerous houses and extensive lands in several neighbouring parishes, he was still a minor, and his wardship was sold to Sir Edward Norris for £110. At the time, Dacre was a student of the Inner Temple; he kept commons there at least until 28 Jul 1601, when he was barred from commons with several others until he found a pledge for his debts.

George DACRE (5º B. Gillesland/ 4º B. Greystoke)

Born: ABT 1560

Died: 17 May 1569

Notes: was entrusted to his guardian, the Duke of Norfolk. Young George shared his brief childhood at Thetford with his three sisters who were prospective co-heiresses. Fell off a vaulting wooden horse, upon which he practised to leap, aged nine and died, which meant that the vast Dacre estates which covered great tracks of the north of England- including 70,000 acres of the Barony of Gillesland, lands in Cumberland including Greystoke and Dacre, 20,000 acres around Morpeth and 30,000 acres in Yorkshire- all came under the control of the Howard family. The children's uncle, Lord Leonard Dacre, was so incensed that his claim to be male heir was filed in the court whose marshal was the Duke of Norfolk himself. The court was therefore adapted for the Duke's defence, but the final verdict prohibited Lord Dacre's descent to the barony.
