    The following is copied from "The History of the Draycott Family" website at http://www.geocities.com/Athens/Agora/3542/draycott.html:

    Here the family split, with Philip de Draycote taking over the estate at Leigh. This however, is of no concern to us, and the next Draycott of the Draycott lineage is RICHARD DE DRAYCOTE (VII). He is perhaps most memorable for his notable military services. In 1294-5 he was in the Welsh War, accompanying Edmund the Baron of Stafford, both of them being in the retinue of firstly the Earl of Norfolk and later the Earl of Warwick. In 1297 he appears on the "Almain" Roll of the knights of Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire summoned to the unsatisfactory campaign in Flanders. In 1298 he shared in the Scottish campaign which included the defeat of William Wallace at Falkirk, (as immortalised in the 1990s Hollywood classic "Braveheart"), and in 1301 he was summoned to take part in another Scottish expedition which ended in a truce. That he was personally summoned for at least two of these expeditions shows his importance. Richard married a Lettice de Bek, daughter and heiress of Robert de Bek of Tene (Tean), and is notable since her mother was Orabella, (Richardís step-grandmother). She died before Richard, (around 1280, he 1321-2), though together they had issue, Robert, Philip and Roger.
