|Ogle pedigree from 1575 Visitation of the North|
[As published by the Surtees Society]
The Ogle pedigree from the 1575 Visitation is on p. 88-89 of Visitation of the North Part IV. It does give a daughter to the 3rd Baron "Anne maried to Humfrey son and heir to Sir William Lisle", and a daughter to the 4th Baron "Agnes", with no marriage. No mention of any marriage to a Sir John Delaval. Hedley in his Lisle article (p. 226) says that Sir William Lisle and his son Humphrey participated in several raids in 1527, freeing prisoners from the gaol at Newcastle, stealing cattle from the sheriff of Northumberland, etc. This led to Sir William's execution in April 1528, when "Humphrey and apparently his younger brother were pardoned on account of their youth". Hedley assumed Humphrey Lisle was only about thirteen years old in 1521 when the canons of Bridlington "asserted themselves and occupied the tithe corn and when sir William heard of this 'he sent his son and servant (called Jowsey) to turn them out; on which they killed him (the canon) with their swords'". No father would send a 13-year-old son to deal with a hot button issue like that. Maybe an 18-year-old son. This evidence suggests that Humphrey was born no later than 1503.
|Delaval of Seaton coat of arms|
Given that: a) the latest that Anne Ogle, daughter of the 3rd Baron Ogle, could have been born is 1513 (the year he died); b) all chronological evidence points to the children of the 3rd Lord Ogle born earlier than that, in the timespan of 1490 to 1505; c) Humphrey Lisle of Felton appears to have been born no later than 1503; d) Sir John Delaval appears to have been born a full generation later, in the early 1520s; e) so far there isn't a 16th-century original document that confirms Lisle and Delaval were married to the same lady; and f) the (presumably 16th-century) source of the 1881 Harleain Society Delaval pedigree states that Sir John Delaval's wife's first name not 'Anne' but 'Agnes', and we know that the 4th Lord Ogle had a daughter by that name who works perfectly chronologically - I'm going on the assumption in my database that the 3rd Lord Ogle had a daughter Anne married to Humphrey Lisle of Felton (c.1503-bef.1542), and the 4th Lord Ogle's daughter Agnes was the one who was married to Sir John Delaval (by 1523-1572).
[*2] The most recent pedigree of the Blounts of Mapledurham can be found in BLG 17th Edition (1952), p. 2158, sub Riddell of Cheeseburn Grange. It states that William Blount of Kidmore End (d. 1676) married "Elizabeth, dau. of Sir Ralph Delaval, Bt., of Seaton Delaval, Northumberland". Sir Ralph Delaval, 1st Baronet was born 13 October 1622, and Lyster Blount, the son of William Blount & Elizabeth Delaval, was born in 1654. It's chronologically impossible for a man born in 1654 to have been the grandson of one born in 1622. So William Blount's wife Elizabeth cannot have been the daughter of the first, or any subsequent, Delaval baronet.
|Seaton Delaval Hall, Northumberland|
Going back to the 1909 Delaval pedigree, Sir Ralph Delaval (by 1577-1628), the grandfather of the 1st Baronet, did have a daughter Elizabeth, born in 1615, but per the pedigree, she died unmarried in 1629, a month before her 14th birthday. Looking closely at the pedigree, the likeliest Elizabeth Delaval to have been the wife of William Blount, is Sir Ralph Delaval's niece Elizabeth, "baptized 11th August, 1623; living unmarried, 2nd August, 1650", a daughter of his younger brother Robert Delaval of Cowpen. This works well chronologically, as William Blount could not have been born prior to 1620 (his father's first wife died in November 1619), and Lyster Blount, the couple's elder son, was born in 1654, just four years after Elizabeth Delaval was reported living unmarried. This is how I have it in my database, with a note that further research is needed.
