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

    We have no evidence of who succeeded Philip, (except that it was not Robert), so the lineage either goes HUGH DE DRAYCOTE (IV), or RICHARD DE DRAYCOTE (IV). One or other of these was father of the next Draycott we hear of, RICHARD DE DRAYCOTE (V).

    This Draycott is indeed well documented and one of the most famous of the family. He was Justice of Chester and in 1244-50 he was a Knight. He also acquired land in Calton, (Derbs.), and Tillington. He died between 1260-8. Sir Richard certainly married twice and maybe three times. His first wife was Aliva or Alina de Legh of Leigh near Uttoxter. Although there is no reference too her, W. Fowler Carter reckons that Sir Richard had a second wife, and his third wife, who survived him was Orabilis or Orabella, (modern day "Arabella"), who was sister of Sarra de Thene (Tean). She was previously married to a Robert de Bek, and obviously was not married to Richard long, for in 1272 we hear of her as wife of William Wyther, who was a Knight and described as a "distinguished man-at-arms". Sir Richard had issue Philip, Roger and Richard, (who was probably by his second wife).
