    Notes:

    Sheriff of Yorkshire 1366-67. One of the executors of the will of William la Zouche, Archbishop of York, his father-in-law's brother.

    Called in error "William Constable" in The Visitation of Yorkshire in the Years 1563 and 1564.

    "By 1351 Marmaduke had the resources to undertake rebuilding at Flamborough and obtained licence to crenellate the manor. Alongside this suggestion of growing prosperity Marmaduke was taking on a larger public role. In 1349 he was appointed an executor of Archbishop Zouche, he was added to the commission of the peace in 1351, and was sheriff of Yorkshire in 1360–62 and 1366–7. He was discharged as commissioner in May 1370, which seems to mark the end of his public career, although he did not die until 21 May 1378. His last months were overshadowed by the murder of his kinsman John at Holme-on-Spalding Moor in June 1377 by two men identified as the cousins of the parson. There had been trouble there in 1365, when a commission of oyer and terminer had been appointed to investigate Marmaduke's complaint that the residents had attacked his manor house, and John's death was perhaps linked with continuing local unrest." [Oxford Dictionary of National Biography]

    Family/Spouse: Joan la Zouche. Joan (daughter of Roger la Zouche and Felicia) was born in in of Lubbesthorpe, Blaby, Leicestershire, England; died before 1376; was buried in All Saints, Holme upon Spalding Moor, Yorkshire, England. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Notes:

    Knight of the shire for Yorkshire, Feb 1388 (the "Merciless Parliament").

    Sheriff of Yorkshire, 20 Oct 1385 - 18 Nov 1386; 11 Nov 1394 - 9 Nov 1395.

    "[H]e married Margaret, the widow of Alexander Surteys, who had died young in 1380 barely a few months after succeeding to family property in North Gosforth. Surteys had, however, by then produced an infant son, who became a ward of Margaret's father, William Skipwith. Since she herself had remarried without first obtaining the necessary royal licence, the Crown demanded a fine of 40s. before dower could be assigned, although in February 1384 Skipwith was ordered to be present when a suitable allocation of property was made to her out of the child's patrimony. Sir Robert was naturally anxious to gain control of the rest of these estates as well, and in October 1385 he finally obtained a lease of the town of North Gosforth at an annual rent of eight marks payable at the Exchequer." [Complete Peerage]

    "His return to the Merciless Parliament of 1388, in which the Lords Appellant removed King Richard's most unpopular favourites and asserted control over the government, does, however, underline the strength of his connexions in the upper ranks of the nobility, for both Thomas of Woodstock and Gaunt's son, Henry of Bolingbroke, were active as Appellants, and clearly relied upon the support of friends like Constable among the shire knights." [History of Parliament]

    From the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography:

    Sir Robert [ii] Constable [...] continued the family's slow rise into a more than purely local prominence. During his father's lifetime he had begun a military career, campaigning in Brittany in 1373 with John of Gaunt, duke of Lancaster. This was the family's first known association with the house of Lancaster since 1321, and it is unclear whether the connection had been maintained in the intervening generations. It may have been for his service on that campaign that Robert was knighted. His military activity continued as head of the family (he served in Brittany under Thomas of Woodstock in 1380 and in Scotland under Gaunt in 1383) alongside involvement in local government. He was a justice of the peace for the East Riding and sheriff of Yorkshire in 1385-6 and 1394-5, and was returned to parliament in 1388. He acquired land in Butterwick in Ryedale, Yorkshire, in 1395, and it may also have been Robert who forged the links with the Percy family that were to be of such importance to the family in the next century. By 1405 (but not in 1378) the Constables held land of the earl of Northumberland in Nafferton, Yorkshire, and elsewhere.

    Robert was unmarried at his father's death, but within three years had married Margaret Skipwith, the widow of Alexander Surtees (d. 1380) of North Gosforth, Northumberland. They were pardoned for marrying without licence in January 1384, but the marriage must have taken place earlier, since Robert's heir was old enough to inherit at his father's death, which occurred in late 1400 or early 1401.

    Robert married Margaret Skipwith before 20 Jan 1384. Margaret (daughter of William Skipwith and Alice Hiltoft) was born about 1360; died after Jan 1401. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Sheriff of Yorkshire 1461-3; Sheriff of Lincolnshire 1466-7; Justice of the Peace for the East Riding of Yorkshire 1453-88. Possibly Mayor of York at some point (not confirmed).

    Joan Kirby, in The Plumpton Letters and Papers (Camden Society, 5th Series 8, Royal Historical Society, 1996), says of him "A political trimmer, he remained on the East Riding bench throughout every revolution from 1453 until his death." Another source calls him an "administorial 'Vicar of Bray'."

    In an odd side note, he was part owner of a pirate ship in 1473, which we know because he was ordered to pay compensation for its attacks on Scottish shipping.

    Fought at Bosworth. Commanded the left at Flodden Field. Died after accidentally drinking a glass of water with a live frog in it, thus disproving the widely-repeated saying that if you eat a live frog first thing in the morning, nothing worse will happen to you all day.

    Family/Spouse: Joyce Stafford. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]



Generation: 8

  1. 9.  Robert Tyrwhit Descendancy chart to this point (7.Anne7, 6.Robert6, 5.Robert5, 4.Marmaduke4, 3.Robert3, 2.Marmaduke2, 1.Katherine1) was born about 1482 in of Kettleby, Lincolnshire, England; died on 4 Jul 1548 in Kettleby, Lincolnshire, England; was buried in Wrawby, Kettleby, Lincolnshire, England.

    Notes:

    Sheriff of Lincolnshire 1519-20, 1523-4, 1540-1.

    Entertained Henry VIII and his court in Kettleby on 8 and 9 Oct 1541. According to Notices and Remains of the Family of Tyrwhitt (citation details below), Tyrwhit "hanged the trees on the way from Kettleby to Brigg with carcases of sheep and beasts (oxen), to show that he could feed all comers."

    He is said by some to have been a vice-admiral of England under Henry VIII, but as Robert Philip Tyrwhitt (citation details below) points out, he is more likely to have been one of many titular "vice-admirals" for a piece of his nearby Lincolnshire coast, a distinction shared by many armigerous men whose seats adjoined important pieces of coast.

    Family/Spouse: Maud Tailboys. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]
