      Catharine's brother Robert Darcy, died in 1414, leaving Harraton to John, the son of Catharine (who must have been dead by then), according to a posting by Kevan L Barton, 8 Aug 2000, to soc.genealogy.medieval.

      However an earlier posting, 6 Feb 2000, by Kevan indicated that Catharine was alive in 1416 and her husband John was "of Harraton", as copied below:

      From: Kevan L. Barton (kevanbarton@earthlink.net)
      Subject: Darcy of Harverton?

      I note in a msg dated 3/27/1999, that Lloyd King asks if anyone has tried to tie the Darcy of Nocton family to Katherine Darcy who married John Hedworth esq of Harraton.

      Katherine was the sister and coheir of Robert Darcy Esq of Harverton in 1416. This is according to surtees "History and Antiquities of the County Palatine of Durham."

      I too am interested in this line, but the archives does not provide a responce. Was there a response? I do, however, have a bit more information that might be of interest, but if you've the lines that take the family back, I'd be very thankful.

      According to the 1562 Visitation of Lincolnshire, Katherine, Mary, and Isabel were the daughters of John Darcy (arms: Argent, three roses Gules, a label of three points Sable). It appears that the above Robert Darcy must have died without heir as the sisters all carried the family arms into their marriages.

      Katherine married John Hedworth and their daughter Joane (c. 1400) married Richard Hansard. Mary married John Seymer (arms: Ermine, two chevrons Sable) and their daughter Alice married Thomas Delamore (arms: three chevrons). Isabel married a Thomas Darcy (c.1380). Isabel's grandaughter Margaret Darcy married a Robert Conyers (c. 1420).

      Both Katherine's and Mary's lines disappear in the male lines and marry into the Hansard family. Their coats of arms can be seen quartered with the Ayscough arms on the Ayscough escutcheon at the parish church of St. Paul in Stallingborough, Lincolnshire. I've been there and taken pictures.

      I'd appreciate any leads you folks might have in extending any of these lines: Darcy, Seymer, Delamore.

      Thanks,
      Kevan
