  • ID: I25174
  • Name: Thomas BOYNTON , of Acklam, Sir 1 2 3
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1350 in Acklam, Yorkshire North Riding, England
  • Death: BEF 6 SEP 1402 4 5
  • Note:
    The following is copied from VCH-Yorkshire North Riding in its article on the descent of the Manor of Acklam:

    Hugh son of Norman, Earl Hugh's tenant in 1086, was perhaps succeeded by Alvered, or Alfred, lord in about 1120. Roger, son of Alvered's grandson William de Acklam, had two daughters, one of whom, Joan, was sole heir to her father's lands after her sister's death without issue. She was the wife of Ingram de Boynton. William the son and heir of this marriage, who was living in 1256 and lord of Acklam in 1284-5, had been succeeded by his son Ingram before 1303. From Ingram de Boynton Acklam descended to his eldest son Walter, who died not later than 1340, when the manor was settled on his son Thomas with his wife Katherine. From Thomas, lord in 1365, Acklam descended to his son the second Sir Thomas Boynton, who was succeeded in 1402 by his son Henry, executed three years later for joining the rebellion of the Percys. The manor of Acklam was granted with Kirk Leavington (q.v.) to Roger Thornton and was in his possession in 1428, but afterwards reverted to Henry Boynton's heirs. William, his second son, is said to have held it after the death of his brother Thomas, and in 1460 or 1461 Thomas son and heir of William died lord of Acklam. From his son Henry, who was dead in 1495, the manor came in direct line to Henry's grandson Matthew, seised at his death in 1540, when he left a son Thomas, aged three. Thomas was succeeded in January 1581-2 by his son and heir Francis, lord in 1613, and, it is said, until 1617. Twenty years later Acklam was sold by his son Sir Matthew Boynton, bart., to William Hustler. From: 'Parishes: Acklam', A History of the County of York North Riding: Volume 2 (1923), pp. 221-223.

    -------------------

    From the above, I deduce the following pedigree (the main line of heirs):

    1, Hugh son of Norman held Acklam in 1086
    2. Alvered or Alfred (perhaps son of above), lord of Acklam c1120
    3. NN de Acklam
    4. William de Acklam
    5. Joan (sole heir, sister d. s.p.); m. Ingram de Boynton
    6. William de Boynton, [of age by 16 May 1250 per A2A], Lord of Acklam 1284-5
    7. Ingram de Boynton, succeeded to Acklam bef. 1303
    8. Walter de Boynton, d. by 1340
    9. Thomas de Boynton, succeeded to Acklam 1340, Lord in 1365 ; m. Katherine
    10. Thomas Boynton, of Acklam, d. by 1402
    11. Henry Boynton, succeeded to Acklam 1402, executed 3 years later (Percy rebellion)
    --. (after the execution, Acklam was granted to Roger Thornton, in possession 1428)
    --. (But sometime after 1428, it reverted to Henry's heirs)
    12. William Boynton (2nd son), held Acklam after death of his elder brother Thomas
    13. Thomas Boynton, Lord of Acklam, d. 1460-1 [m. Agnes daughter of William Normanville per A2A]
    14. Henry Boynton, d. by 1495
    15. NN Boynton
    16. Matthew Boynton, d. 1540
    17. Thomas Boynton, b. 1536-7, d. by Jan 1581-2
    18. Francis Boynton, Lord of Actum in 1613, it is said until 1617
    19. Matthew Boynton, sold Acklam to William Hustler in 1637

    From VCH-Yorkshire North Riding's article on Castle Leavington (see notes for Christopher Boynton (1415-1451)), I deduce that generation #8 above had another son:

    8. Walter de Boynton, d. by 1340
    9a. Walter Boynton, d. aft. 1356; m. Alice Meynell, heir of Castle Leavington 1349, d. 1387
    10a. Walter Boynton, of Castle Leavington, d. s.p. 1388

    From the post to SGM by Brad Verity, I get that generation #10 above had another son:

    10. Thomas de Boynton, of Acklam, d. by 1402
    11b. Christopher Boynton, of Sedbury, d. by 1444; m. Elizabeth Conyers
    12b. Chistopher Boynton, of Sedbury & Castle Leavington, d. 1451; m. Joan Strangeways

    The marriage of #13 Thomas Boynton to Agnes Normanville is indicated by the following copied from the British Public Records Office via A2A (it puts some doubt as to whether the earlier Thomas Boynton m. Isabel Normanville):
