Historical records

1593 to 1611HistoryMargaret Lennard [Fiennes], 11th Baroness DacreChevening churchVenables' Herstmonceux
Gregory [Fiennes] … died without issue in 1593; when his sister Margaret, who was married to Sampson Lennard, Esq., of Chevening in Kent, inherited his estates, and was recognised as Baroness Dacre by a commission in 1604. This Sampson Lennard, who is mentioned with much regard by Camden in his 'Britannia,' as a person of great worth and politeness, and the Lady Dacre his wife, lived much at Herstmonceux, where they were remarkable for their noble housekeeping and splendid hospitality; they embellished the castle with costly chimney-pieces, ornamented, according to the fashion of the times, with their armorial bearings, and erected the grand staircase. They had seven sons and six daughters, and are buried in Chevening church, under a noble monument, on which are both their effigies in full size, with their children kneeling round.
