  • Notes 
    • Lieutenant of the Tower of London.

      Arthur Darcy and Mary Carew were both descendants of Edward III and Philippa of Hainault, he as a 6Xgreat-grandson and she as a 5Xgreat-granddaughter. By those descents they were, to one another, sixth cousins once removed. But in fact they were slightly more closely related than that: fifth cousins once removed by shared descent from Ralph de Greystoke and Katherine Clifford, and fifth cousins twice removed by shared descent from John de Welle and Maud de Ros.

      Arthur Darcy (1505-1561) = Mary Carew
      Thomas Darcy (d. 1605) = Elizabeth Conyers
      Conyers Darcy (1570-1654) = Dorothy Belasyse
      Conyers Darcy (1599-1689) = Grace Rokeby
      Conyers Darcy (1622-1692) = Frances Howard
      John Darcy (1659-1689) = Bridget Sutton
      Robert Darcy (1681-1721) = Frederica Schomberg
      Robert Darcy (1718-1778) = Mary Doublet
      Amelia Darcy (1754-1784) = John "Mad Jack" Byron (1756-1791), father of Lord Byron
      Augusta Maria Bryon, known as Augusta Leigh (1783-1851)
