    • Dear Group,
      I have not been watching this thread so please excuse me if this has already been covered.
      Elizabeth Lewkenor's will dated 20 February 1464 is online as ref. PROB 11/5 at <http://www.
      nationalarchives.gov.uk/documentsonline/wills.asp>
      I haven't seen it's contents but it should help with the question of whether Elizabeth Echyngham is
      the mother of Nicholas Lewkenor.
      I note Rosie Bevan posted to SGM 29 June 2001 an extract from William Bayley, Account of the
      House of D'Oyly, 1845, p.95: "SIR THOMAS LEWKNOR, aforesaid of Bradhurst, co Sussex & co
      who had previously in 5th Hen IV been found heir, through his grandmother Joane D'Oyly to the
      extensive estates of the Tregoze family at Goring, co Sussex, and elsewhere in that county, on the
      death of John Tregoze of Goring, son of Sir Henry Tregoze, Knt : on which occasion the jury
      returned that "Thomas Lewknor was the cousin and heir of the deceased (being the son of Roger,
      the son of Joan, the daughter of Margaret D'Oyly, sister of Sir Henry Tregoze) and that the said
      Thomas was 12 years of age. [Esch 5 Hen IV John Tregoze]. Sir Thomas thus acquired many
      numerous estates in Sussex ; moved his seat to Goring ; was knight of the shire for Sussex in 1 Hen
      VI (1423) and was thrice married. His first wife was Elizabeth, daughter of his maternal kinsman and
      guardian Nicholas Carew of Beddington, co. Surrey (ancestor of the Baronets Carew of Beddington)
      by Mary his wife. She died s.p. Sept 1410 and was buried in Beddington church [Manning's Surrey, II
      523-9]. He married secondly Philippa, relict of Sir Richard Berners, daughter and, by death s.p. of
      her brother Richard Dalyngrigge, sole heiress of Walter Dalyngrigge, son of Sir Roger Dalyngrigge of
      Bodiam Castle, co. Sussex, and cousin and heiress of Sir John Dalyngrigge, Knt.
      [Bayley goes on to say that Thomas Lewknor's third wife was Catherine Pelham, but on my copy he
      has realised his mistake and crossed it out. In his handwriting he has added "this relates to his
      grandson" and "his third wife was Elizabeth Echingham"]"
      >From this it would seem Elizabeth Carew died s.p. so cannot be the mother and Philippa
      Dalyngrigge was an heiress so may have had an IPM which would mention her heirs.

      > From Tim we see that the 1530 visititation of Sussex give Nicholas's parents as Sir Thomas
      Lewknor and Phillipe Dalingrigdge. And the Worcester 1569 visitation gives the same parents to
      Nicholas.
      > Martin Hollick quotes Magna Carta Ancestries by Douglas Richardson who says that the parents of
      Nicholas were Sir Thomas Lewknor and Elizabeth Etchingham. He gives a death date for her of
      before 23 Feb 1464. Goodness knows where I got 1412 from! But this certainly gives her a more
      fitting death date.
      > However, Genealogics gives the name Elizabeth Carew as both the name of Nicholas's mother
      (Sir Thomas Lewknor's wife) and also Sir Thomas's mother, Nicholas's paternal grandmother.
      > It seems therefore most probable that Elizabeth Etchingham is the mother of Nicholas now that
      Doug provides a better death date for her. Best wishes
