Humphrey Dayntrie

Died 1580

Father John Dantre
Mother  
Wife Jane
Children Thomas, John, Anne, Tristram, Elizabeth(?)


Humphrey was probably born in Hatton in the parish of Marston in the 1520s, the son of John. He had five brothers, seemingly all older, and one sister (1).

He married a woman named Jane, probably in the late 1540s (2). Jane probably originated from Fauld in the parish of Hanbury, a couple of miles west along the River Dove, and they settled there at some stage (3), and had at least four children - Thomas, John, Ann & Tristram, and possibly a daughter named Elizabeth too (5).

Humphrey and Jane sold some property in Hanbury and Fauld in 1576 (4) and then he wrote his will the following year (5). He died in 1580 (6).


Brief details of his children:



Sources:

  1. Humphrey's date of birth is estimated in relation to his elder brothers John and Thomas, and his place of birth is assumed to be where his father lived in 1549. See his father's page
  2. Jane's name is found in a final concord of 1576(4), and in Humprey's will the following year(5). The estimated date of their marriage is based on only a single child being mentioned in Humphrey's father's will in 1549, and on Humphrey's estimated birth date in the 1520s.
  3. Jane's inclusion in the final concord of 1576 implies that the lands Humphrey was selling were either hers or came to him via her. If she held lands in Fauld, and they settled there, then it seems likely that Jane originated there.
  4. Collections for a History of Staffordshire, Vol XIV, 1893, page 184, amongst a collection of extracts from final concords lists one as follows:
    On the Quindene of Easter. 18 Elizabeth.
    Between Ralph Adderley, complainant, and Humphrey Dayntre and Jane his wife, deforciants of 7 acres of land, 10 acres of meadow, and 10 acres of pasture in Hanbery and Fald.
    Humphrey and Jane remitted all right to Ralph and his heirs, for which Ralph gave them 40.
