1592 - sonne and heire (of John Lennard)

GENEALOGY: An Account of the Families of Lennard and Barrett; chapter III

page 215.........John Leonard's eldest son Samson was born about 1545, and he married, some twenty years later, the Hon. Margaret Fynes. Camden, in his 'Britannia,' speaking of the death of her bother Lord Dacre, says: 'whose sister & heir Margaret, Sampson Lennard, a person of extraordinary worth & civility, took to wife, and by her hath fair issue.' They had a considerable family, and if we may estimate the appearance of the rest of their children from the portrait we have at Belhus of their eldest son Henry, Camden's eulogy would not seem to be misplaced. Lord Dacre speaks of there being eight children, but his copy from the parish registers of Chevening and Sevenoaks shows there to have been ten baptized in those churches; according to the inscription on Samson's tomb there were in all seven sons, of whom Henry, Gregory, and Thomas survived him; and six daughters, of whom five survived.

(page 218) - Samson was admitted a member of Lincoln's Inn on May 9th, 1564, by 'special admission.' I might here remark that in all the documents I have seen signed by Samson he spells his names as I do here, but in Lord Dacre's writings, and indeed in almost every reference to him which I finde, his name is spelt with a 'p'.

In the 33rd of Elizabeth (November 1590 to November 1591 ) Samson was High Sheriff of Kent; and he was elected a member of several Parliaments: in 1586 for St. Maws; in 1588 for the borough of Christchurch, Hants; in 1592 for St Germans; in 1597 for Rye; in 1601 for Liskeard ; and in 1614 for the county of Sussex. In 1586 he appears to have wished to be elected for Southampton, as among the archives of that borough there is the following letter from a Mr. William Butler to the Mayor of that place:

Oct 12, 1586. Mr Maior I have become an earnest sutor to you to have your favour & furtherance to make choyse of a Friende of mine to be one of your burgesses of your Towne in this parliament. The gentleman is a very sufficient man, and if you make your election of a burgess, that is noe Townesman, you can not make choyse of a better, his name is Mr. Sampson Leonarde, dwelling in Kent, but yf yt please you, & the rest of your aldermen to grante me my sute, ye shall heare of him at my house at all times when you shall have cause to use him, who is a very sufficient gentleman in any matter for your Towne, & myself shall thinke myself greatly beholding to you.

(page 218-219) - Samson was as public-spirited in taking part in the patriotic movements of that day for the defence of the country against the aggressions of Philip of Spain as he was in political matters, and in 1588, when the Spanish Armada was launched against England, we find Samson more than ready to take his part in repelling the invader. Among the MSS. of the Right Hon. Saville Foljambe there is a book in vellum covers endorsed 'The Book of Musters, 1588'; this refers to the warlike preparations then being made throughout England to ensure the safety of the country. It gives a list of the 'chief captains' in the different counties of the kingdom, and among the list for Kent the name of Samson appears with fifty light horse; and eight years later, when Spain again appeared to be likely to attack England, we read that on November 10th, 1596, very careful preparations were made to guard the Medway from foreign aggression. A carefully thought-out system for sending the first alarm of the enemy's approach was adopted ; a chain of stations was establishcd whence signals were to be sent one to the other by beacon fires and gun firing, and places which were so situated as to be beyond reach of these signals were to be warned by means of hoblers' sent from Rochester by the Deputy Lieutenants. The Mayor of that town was to send notice to Sir J. Leveson, Thomas Walsingham, Mr. Style, Mr. Mayor of Maidstone, Mr. Lennard, and Mr. Rivers, and each of these captains was to give notice to the rest. On November 12th these five (sic) captains were to repair to Upnor Castle with 1,080 men, and there be distributed in the five ships next the chain.

The following letter from a Mr. Rowland Whyte to Sir Robert Sydney shows that Samson was active in doing magisterial work in his neighbourhood, and is also somewhat interesting, illustrating as it does the necessity that existed then, as now, for members of Parliament to conciliate their supporters :-

(page 219-220) - Euen now Mr. Lovelace of Kent came vnto me & desired me to procure hym some answer from your Lordship to a letter he sent you; yt is about a Colt he says is vnduly detained from hym in Oteford park. His sute unto you is that you will direct your Lettre to Sir Thos Walsingham, Sir John Lcvison, Mr Leonard, Mr Sidley or any two of them to examine thc cause. I promised to write vnto you about yt for he is one of them that gaue you his voice in the Election, and I haue thanked hym for yt.

Unfortunately we have no correspondence from Samson, except three drafts of letters to agents concerning his property at Horsford, Norfolk; but these are sufficient to show that he could express himself with great clearness and considerable dignity. There are in the British Museum two letters from Samson to a Mr. Hicks; I have not been able to identify the 'most vnhappye kynsman,' on whose behalf the following of these letters was written, which are addressed :

To the Worshipful my very lovyng frend Mr Michael Hicks
Good mr Hicks I vnderstand by my brother how much we are all bound vnto yov for your frendship in procuryng the reprie of my most vnhappye kynsman for the wch I most heartylye thank yov. By a lamentable letter sent vnto me this nyght from some sisters of myne that remayne ther I am informed that the Quene hath lately sent Mr Wade to the Kyng of Portyngall to require hym to leave his sute for Raulins (?) and that she is purposed the law shall haue his course for his execution, wch if it be true We have small hope our kynsman shalbe spared, I beseech yov affourd your best helpe at this pinche and I shall never forgett your kyndnes but ever be redye to requite to the vttermost of my power. And so wt my most harty commendations in hast I leave yov
Knoll this xvij of May 1592.
Your very lovyng frend
SAMSON LENNARD

In the second letter, also dated from Knole, but some two years later, Samson expresses a hope that Mr. Hicks 'wyll one day gett leasure to cum wt your bedfellow to Knoll where you . shall fynd the best welcome I can giue you.'

(page 221) - Within a few years of his father's death, which, as I have said, took place in 1590, Samson received a very considerable addition to his fortune by the death of his brother-in-law, Gregory Fynes, Lord Dacre. The estates which came to Samson through his wife by Lord Dacre's death were those of Herstmonceux, and many others which were settled upon her..........

Hurstmonceux Castle, Sussex

(page 226-227) - At the time that Lord Dacre (Samson's grandson, Richard Lord Dacre) wrote his Family History there existed in the possession of Sir Thomas Rider,of Boughton, Kent, a MS. account written by his ancestor, Sir Francis Barnham,of his own family, of which Lord Dacre obtained a copy. I give the following quotation from it, as Sir Francis mentions his marriage with Samson's daughter Elizabeth, and he also refers to his father-in-law's mode of living and to his character :-

In the fortieth year of Queen Elizabeth my Father Martin Barnham served the Office of High Sheriff for the County of Kent and during his Shrievalty married me to the daughter of Mr Sampson Lennard and the Lady Dacre in which match his goodness sought rather to give me a Wife that might bring me a Noble alliance and promise the happiness of a good Wife (as being borne of a Mother that abounded as much in worth & Virtue as in honour) than to enrich himself or his other children by so great a Portion as it is probable he might have had in divers places, if that had been his Chiefest Ayme in my Marriage. . . . Within less than two years after my Marriage, I came to live in my Father's House tho' I had then by Covenant one Years Being more with my Father in Law (Mr.Sampson Lennard) who tho' he kept a very honourable House and lived in all respects in so brave a Fashion, as might make the being there very delightfull, especially to me, who had always from all hands a very loving & Noble treatment, yet the happiness promissed myself in the comfort of my Father's kind & familiar usage, & in his Advice & instructions &c made me hasten my coming to live with him.

(page 229)- I have a deed, dated May 17th, 1599, whereby Samson, described as of Knole, agreed to sell the manor of Scorton, Yorks, for 2,000l. in money, and the purchaser agreed also to 'give my Ladie Dacres his wife a good ambling geldinge' on the following All Saints' Day. I have also three deeds, dated in June 1602, in which he was still described as of Knole, whereby he sold parcels of land in Otford to three different persons.......in 1611 by a deed in which Samson is described as of Herstmonceux, he sold the manor of Wickhurst in Sevenoaks for 1,200l. These lands had all been bought by John Lennard in 1533 for 100l........

(page 232)- I am not able to say when Samson parted with the lease of Knole, but it was probably in 1603. We have seen that the lease to Thomas Rolf was for ninety-nine years, from February 1565/6, and that John Lennard obtained the residue of that term about 1570, when he granted a sublease of it to Samson for twenty years. John's will, which is dated 1587, was made at Knole, and Samson appears to have lived there in I602, and rents from Knole are credited in his rent accounts in 1598 and 1599, but not in I605, which is the next year for which we have these accounts. As he had inherited the freehold of Chevening, which is only three or four miles from Knole, and had also Herstmonceux since his brother-in-law's death, it is not to be wondered at that he was anxious to avoid having upon his hands another large country house so close to Chevening.

I do not find he had any house in London, but we have letters addressed to him there at the following addresses :-.

At the Sygne of the Catte & fidle in flete Strete nere St. Dunstone Church.

At his lodging in fleetstreete.

At Mr. Johnson his house neare the Horne in Fleet Street right over against Serieants Inn London.

To the latter place we have letters addressed on various occasions from 1604 to 1615.

(page 238-239)- Samson.............survived his wife about three years, dying in September 1615. At some period after his wife's death he appears to have transferred most of his property to his eldest son, as, in an undated draft of a letter concerning the Norfolk property, he says: 'I have departed with the greatest part of my estate to my sonne Dacre.'

Samson and his wife lie buried under a remarkably fine tomb in Chevening Church, upon which are their life-size effigies, with the following inscriptions:

Gloriosum Domini nostri Jesu Christi adventum expectans hic requiescit Sampson Lennard armiger, una cum charissima uxore Margareta Baronissa Dacre (sorore et proxima haerede Gregorii Fienes militis Baronis Dacre de le South) cui 47 annos, 4 menses, et supernumerarios aliquot dies, conjugali vinculo ligatus, suaviter et beate vixit; suscepitque ex eadem 7 filios, Henricum, Baronem Dacre, Gregorium, et Thomam superstites, reliquis quatuor in infantia extinctis, et 6 filias quarum una periit infantula quinque supersunt; Pietatis, comitatis, hospitalitatis, laude celebris et in commune bonus, praepropera nobilissimae uxoris morte ampliorem Regis gratiam anticipante, honore primogeniti filii Baronis Dacre de le South, diplomate illustrissimi Regis Jacobi decoratus, anno aetatis 71, ineunte salutis 1615, Sept. 20. ex hac vita migravit

On the other side :-

Margaretae Fynes, Baronissae Dacre, Filiae Thomae Baronis Dacre, Filii Thomae Fienes militis, Filii Thomae Baronis Dacre, Et Annae uxoris ejus filiae Humfridi Bourchier Militis, filii Johannis, Baronis Bourchier de Berners, filii Gulielmi Bourchier comitis Essexiae et Ewe, et Annae uxoris ejus, filiae Thomae de Woodstock, Ducis de Glocestriae; ex materna stirpe filiae Mariae, filiae Georgii Nevile Baronis de Bergaveny, fiii Edwardi Nevile, Baronis de Burgaveny, filii Radulphi Nevile comitis Westmorlandiae, et Johannae uxoris ejus filiae Johannis de Gaunt Ducis Lancastriae. Amoris et honoris ergo posuit charissimus, idemque moestissimus conjux, quem cum felici prole beasset, exemplarque pietatis in Deum, obsequii in maritum, charitatis in pauperes, humanitatis in omnes, supra sexum exhibuisset; tandem die Martii 10, anno Salutis 1611, aetatis 70, cum summo bonorum omnium desiderio; Supremum Spiritum libens lubensque Patri Spiritum, exhalavit.

This is a very amature attempt at a translation of the above.

Came to this awaited rest in our Glorious Lord Jesus Christ
Sampson Lennard soldier, together with his loving wife Margaret Baroness Dacre (sister and recent heir of Sir Gregory Fienes Knight Baronis Dacre of the South) whom was happily married to her husband 47 years, 4 months and several days; she bore him 7 sons three of whom are still living, Henry Baron Dacre, Gregory, and Thomas four having died in infancy and 6 daughters five surviving of which we know. He had a sense of duty and responsibility to the court with praise and honor and good hospitality. With the sudden death of his noble wife his son and heir became Baron Dacre of the South by official letter from our illustrious King James. At age 71, 20 Sep 1615 he passed from this life
Margaret Fiennes, Baroness Dacre, daughter of Thomas Baron Dacre, son of Thomas Fiennes, knight, son of Thomas Baron Dacre, and Anna his wife daughter of Humphrey Bourchier, knight, son of John Baron Bourchier of Berners, son of William Bourchier Count Essex of Ewe, and Anna his wife daughter of Thomas of Woodstock, Duke of Gloucester; and on her maternal side daughter of Maria, daughter of George Neville Baron of Bergaveny, son of Edward Neville Baron of Burgaveny, son of Ralph Neville Count of Westmorland and Joan his wife daughter of John of Gaunt Duke of Lancaster. Love and honor therefore with sorrow to my loving wife, and with happy descendants, model of mercy in God, obediant in marriage charitable to the poor, kind to all, an example to all women, 10 March 1611, age 70, she took her last breathe and died.

GENEALOGY: An Account of the Families of Lennard and Barrett

Thomas, 23rd May, 1577

(page 242) I have been unable to discover much about either of Samson's sons Thomas or John. An ancient MS. pedigree states that the latter died without issue, but does not give the date of his death. The same pedigree states that in 1628 Thomas was unmarried, and the Gray's Inn Register shows that he was admitted a member of that Inn on May 18th, 1596. We have some papers in a lawsuit brought more than a hundred years later against Thomas Earl of Sussex by which it appears that Samson bought a farm in the parish of Sundridge called Oveny Cakett's, and this farm and twenty acres of land in Brasted he settled on Thomas, whom it there refers to as his 'youngest son,' and makes no mention of the existence of John, so I think we may assume tbe latter died while still a child.

An ancient copy of this Thomas's will describes him as of 'Eveuns Green in the parish of Sundrish Kent.' He appointed his 'loving brother in law' Sir Francis Barnham his executor, to whom he left a legacy of 2ol, and all the residue of his property to his godson Thomas Lennard, who was his greatnephew, being second son of Richard Lord Dacre. Sir Francis Barnham was granted probate of this will in November 1638; and the parish register of Herstmonceux records the burial of Thomas on November 6th in that year. · ·
