    II. 2. WILLIAM [DEINCOURT), LORD DEINCOURT, grandson and heir, being 2nd but 1st surviving son of John DEINCOURT, who was son and heir apparent of the last Lord, but died v.p. The King took his homage and he had livery of his grandfather's lands, 7 February 1326/7, being then aged 26 and more. He did homage and fealty to the Archbishop of York for his lands in Burnby, 11 February 1326/7. On 20 February 1327/8, after the death of Joan, wife ot Hamon de Mascy, he obtained possession of the messuage, &C., in Elmton, as the right heir of Edmund Deincourt, his grandfather. He was summoned for Military Service against the Scots from 5 April 1327 to 23 December 1355 to Councils from 24 August 1336 to 20 June 1358 and to Parliament from 20 July 1332 to 1 June 1363, by writs directed Willelmo de Eyncourt, Deyncourt, or Dayncourt. Appointed a justice in cos. Notts and Derby, to hear and determine the oppressions committed by the King's ministers and others, 10 December 1340: he was then a banneret. A commander at the battle of Neville's Cross, 17 October 1346, being one of those who were thanked, 20 October following, for their services. On 14 May 1347 he was summoned to join the King before Calais. He was the principal warder of the King of France when that monarch was a prisoner in England, 29 July 1359 to 4 May 1360, at Somerton Castle, co. Lincoln and afterwards at Berkhamstead Castle the King being removed to the latter place in March 1359/60, by order of the Council, there being a scare of a French invasion.

    He married, before 26 March 1326, Milicent, 1st daughter of Sir William LA ZOUCHE, of Harringworth, Northants [LORD ZOUCHE], by Maud, daughter of Sir John LOVEL, of Titchmarsh, Northants, and Minster Lovell, Oxon [LORD LOVEL]. He died 2 June 1364. His widow's dower was ordered to be assigned, 5 July 1364. She died 22 June 1379. [Complete Peerage IV:120-2, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]


    William, 9th Lord d'Eyncourt, s. his grandfather when twenty-six years of age, both as heir by descent as well as by virtue of the licensed entail. He was an eminent warrior and active servant of King Edward III through the glorious period of his reign, participating in the immortal achievement of that era in France and Scotland, and on 17 October, 1346, he was one of the commanders in the famous battle of Neville's Cross, near Durham. He is particularly mentioned as an object of the king's gratitude in his letter of thanks dated 20 October, written on the occasion of that celebrated victory when David, King of Scotland, was taken prisoner. King Edward being then before Calais, his queen, Philippa, is stated by some writers to have been present at the battle. At any rate, it is clear she was in the field prior to its commencement, when she rode in front of the army on a white courser and, in the words of the historian, "sweetly exhorted them." She was attended by Lord d'Eyncourt at the head of her guard, a post of honour and responsibility, which shows that he was deemed one of the first gentlemen of his day. This is further evidenced by the circumstance that John, King of France, taken prisoner at the battle of Poictiers -- who, during his captivity in England, was treated with that respectful and generous which shed a lustre over those times -- was consigned to Lord d'Eyncourt's custody and so remained until the period when he passed out to Lincolnshire, under Lord d'Eyncourt's charge, to the metropolis and thence to France, King Edward himself conducting him to the sea-side, and the Black Prince attending him to Calais, having felt his durance so little personally irksome, that he afterwards returned on a visit to King Edward, and died in England before it was completed. On 14 May, 1347, Lord d'Eyncourt was commanded to attend the king before Calais, and was present at all the interesting scenens there enacted and, at the final surrender of the place, followed by the heroic self-devotion of six of the inhabitants, who, with Eustace St. Pierre at their head, were saved by the gentle but urgent intercession of Queen Philippa, who, after the battle of Durham, had joined her husband at Calais. Lord d'Eyncourt d. 2 June, 1364, aged sixty-four. He m. Millicent, dau. of William, Lord Roos, of Hamlake. William, his eldest son, m. Margaret, dau. of Adam de Welles, and d. v. p., leaving an only son, who s. his grandfather as William, 10th Lord d'Eyncourt.
