    • Also called Thomas Daniers, Daniell.

      In the church of St. Wilfred at Grappenhall, now a suburban village in Warrington, Cheshire, is a nineteenth-century plaque that reads:

      In memory of Sir Thomas Danyers of Bradley, within Appleton, who died A.D. MCCCLIV. He was present at the Battle of Crescy, the XXVth day of May, A.D. MCCCXLVI, and there rescued the Standard of Edward the Black Prince, from the hands of the enemy, and made prisoner of the Comte de Tankerville, Chamberlain to the King of France. To preserve the memory of a gallant soldier, this monument was placed here, A.D. MDCCCCLXXVI.

      Note that contrary to the plaque, the Thomas Danyers who fought at Crécy died in 1352. It was his father, also Thomas Danyers, who lived to 1354.

      According to Ormerod (citation details below), "For this service the Black Prince, as earl of Chester, settled on him an annuity of 40 marks per ann. issuing out of his manor of Frodsham, until a convenient grant of land of the value of £20 per ann. could be made."
