    • Note:
      From The History and Topographical Survey of the County of Kent: Volume 3. Originally published by W Bristow, Canterbury, 1797:
      Sampson Lennard, the eldest son, married, in his father's life-time, Margaret, daughter of Thomas, and sister and heir of Gregory, Fynes, Lord Dacre of the south, at which time his father delivered up to them Knole manor, where they afterwards resided.
      On her brother's death, anno 36 queen Elizabeth, without issue, she not only inherited a great fortune from him in this and several other counties, but became entitled to the barony of Dacre; which, on her laying claim to it, was adjudged in the 2d year of James I. to her and her issue, to be held and enjoyed in as full and ample a manner as any of her ancestors had enjoyed the same.
      Margaret lady Dacre died in 1611. Her death prevented the king's intention of calling her husband, Sampson Lennard, up to the house of peers, as lord Dacre. However, he granted him, by his patent that year, the like place and precedence during his life, that the eldest son of the late lord Dacre of the south, formerly had and enjoyed. He had been sheriff of this county in the 33d year of queen Elizabeth, and dying in 1615, lies buried in Chevening church, with the lady Dacre his wife, under a stately tomb of alabaster, on which are both their effigies in full proportion, with their children kneeling round.
