  • ID: I25398
  • Name: Ralph PERCY , of Acton & Leconfield, Sir 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: 11 AUG 1425 in Leckenfield with Arran, Yorkshire East Riding, England 2
  • Death: 25 APR 1464 in Battle of Hedgeley Moor, Northumberland, England 1
  • Note:
    Ralph Percy (Sir) 7th son, b. 1425, a reasonably steadfast supporter of the House of Lancaster in the Wars of the Roses, changing over to Edward IV (head of the House of York) only late 1462 to early 1463, a leader of the Lancastrians in their defeat by Yorkists at Hedgeley Moor (Northumberland) 25 April 1464, where he was killed (another monument called "Percy's Cross" being erected to commemorate the place where he fell); said to have been unmarried, but was claimed as ancestor of what purported to be a Worcester/Salop branch of the Percys by Thomas Percy, Bishop of Dromore, a branch which it was claimed culminated in: [Thomas Percy, an 18th century descendant]. [Burke's Peerage, p. 2120]

    Note: Ralph, died at the age of 39, when he would have been expected to have married and had children. The "said to have been unmarried" probably refers to some visitation where he was listed unmarried and without children. The words "said to have been" are quite often used when a statement is based on a visitation where no evidence had been presented. I would suspect that this was due to a lack of interest in Ralph and his offspring, rather than a statement that he was unmarried and without issue.
