Some corrections and additions to the Complete Peerage: Volume 4: Darcy of Darcy (PROPOSED CORRECTIONS)

DARCY (of Darcy or of Temple Hurst)

See also main section

Volume 4, page 74:
He [Thomas Darcy, Lord Darcy (d. 1537)] m., 1stly, Dowsabel, da. and h. of Richard TEMPEST, of Giggleswick, in Ribbesdale, co. York, by Mabel, da. of Walter STRICKLAND, of Sizergh, Westmorland. She was living 1503. He m., 2ndly, before 1520, Edith, widow of Ralph NEVILL, styled LORD NEVILL, sister of William, 1st LORD SANDYS OF THE VINE, Hants, da. of Sir William SANDYS, of the Vine, by Elizabeth, da. of Sir John CHENEY, of Shurland.

The statement that Thomas Darcy's first wife, Dowsabel, was still living in 1503 seems to be incorrect, as he was married to Edith by 7 December 1499 (see Westmorland, volume 12, part 2, page 553).
