    Notes:

    Sheriff of Lincolnshire 1535-36, 1547-48, 1555-56. Knight of the shire for Lincolnshire, 1547, Apr 1554, 1558. Treasurer of Boulogne 1546-47.

    Hereditary Champion of England at the coronations of Edward VI in 1547, Mary in 1553, and Elizabeth in 1559. Knighted March or September (records vary) 1546.

    From the History of Parliament:

    The first Dymoke of Scrivelsby, Sir John, established his right to act as champion of England at the coronation of Richard II on the ground that the office was attached to the manor of Scrivelsby. Sir Edward Dymoke carried out his hereditary duty at the coronations of Edward VI, Mary and Elizabeth. He sued out a pardon in October 1553 as Sir Edward Dymoke of Scrivelsby alias the King's champion.

    Dymoke's status had earlier been put to a more than symbolic test. It was during his first shrievalty of Lincolnshire that there took place the rising of 1536. The rebels came to Scrivelsby on 3 Oct. and forced the sheriff to assume the leadership of their host; moreover, until the banner of the Five Wounds was prepared one belonging to the Dymoke family was used. It was while Dymoke was nominally at the head of the insurgents that the chancellor of Lincoln was murdered at Horncastle, but a week later he and three of his kinsmen joined the royal forces under the Duke of Suffolk at Stamford. Many of those examined after the rising claimed that the gentry, and in particular the sheriff, might have (as one of them put it) 'stayed the rebels with a white rod', but whatever was thought of his conduct he suffered no punishment or disgrace.

    Dymoke's brief tenure of the treasurership of Boulogne lasted from the autumn of 1546 until the following spring. His appointment was mentioned by Sir Philip Draycott in a letter of 4 Sept. 1546, on 30 Sept. his precursor (Sir) Hugh Paulet spoke of expecting him by 1 Nov., and the Privy Council began sending him instructions in October; his successor, Sir Richard Cotton, was appointed on 17 Mar. 1547. It is not clear why Dymoke was appointed to the office, the only one of its kind which he was to hold, or why he relinquished it so speedily. If he went to Boulogne he must have returned before the coronation on 20 Feb. Both the lustre of this occasion and his recent knighthood may help to account for his election in the following autumn as senior knight of the shire in the first Parliament of the reign. He was, in any case, well qualified by birth, fortune and experience, while his marriage linked him with the governing group in the county which was headed by Edward Fiennes, 9th Lord Clinton, who married his sister-in-law, and included his fellow-knight Sir William Skipwith.

    Dymoke was to be re-elected to two Marian Parliaments when he sat with another kinsman-by-marriage, Sir Robert Tyrwhitt II, but there is no indication of the part which he played in the House or of his attitude towards the religious changes in which he became involved there. He was to remain in favour and employment under Elizabeth, and his appointment to a commission to impose the Acts of Supremacy and Uniformity shows that he must have conformed to this further settlement. In 1564, however, he was described as 'indifferent' and his eldest son, Robert, as a 'hinderer': Robert became an open recusant and died in prison for his religion in 1580.
