Sir John Byron, Knight #52ancestors

This weeks post is about the 9th great grandfather of the poet known as Lord Byron...

  • Sir John Byron was born in 1387 at of Clayton, Lancashire, England. He married Margaret Booth, daughter of John Boothe, Esq. and Joane Trafford, circa 1400.3,5 Sir John Byron died in 1442 at of Clayton, Lancashire, England.
  • BYRON, Sir John (1386-1450), of Clayton, Lancs. and South Stoke, Lincs.
  • b.c.1386, s. and h. of Sir Richard Byron (d. 7 June 1397) of Clayton by his w. Joan Colwick (d. 8 Oct. 1426) of Colwick, Notts. and South Stoke. m. Margery (d.c.1460), da. of John Booth I*, at least 5s. (1 d.v.p.), 5da. Kntd. by 1415.1
  • At the time of his death, in June 1397, Sir Richard Byron owned land in the Lancashire villages of Butterworth, Royton and Ashton-under-Lyne, as well as the ancestral manor of Clayton which (with its extensive appurtenances in and around Manchester) had belonged to the family for at least three centuries. Through his wife, Joan, he had moreover gained possession of widespread estates in Lincolnshire centred upon the manors of Gedney, South Stoke, Croxton and Obthorpe, some of which he had previously, in 1383, settled upon trustees. Joan retained these properties, together with her own family seat at Colwick, until her death many years later, leaving her young son, John, to inherit whatever holdings in Lancashire had not already been assigned to her as dower. The wardship and marriage of the boy were given by Richard II to Sir Ralph Radcliffe*, but in September 1400 Henry IV rescinded the grant in favour of his ‘trescher et foial chevalier’, Sir John Assheton II*, who agreed to pay an annual farm of 80 marks to the Crown. We do not know when Byron married Margaret, the daughter of John Booth I, but the couple’s own child, Elizabeth, was betrothed in 1415 to Assheton’s son, Thomas (‘the Alchemist’), thus strengthening further the connexions between these three powerful Lancashire families.              

Sir John Byron, Kt. is my 18th great grandfather.
