SANDYS, OF GRAYTHWAITE.



309



Mr. Sandys is a captain on the half-pay of the army, and a deputy lieutenant for
Lancashire.



ILtmagt.



The family of Sandys, or Sandes, was
anciently seated at St. Bees, in Cumber-
land. In 1377 Richard del Sandys and Sir
Robert Moubray were returned knights of
that shire. And subsequently other mem-
bers of the house of Sandys enjoyed the
same honor.

William, or John Sandes, espoused the
daughter of Bonham, and was father of a
daughter, Margaret, the wife of the Right
Hon. Richard Bray, and mother of Sir Re-
ginald Bray, K.G. standard bearer to King
Henry VIII. and a son,

William Sandys, who wedded Margaret,
daughter and heiress of William Rawson,
of the county of York, and had, with two
younger, whose issue is now extinct, his suc-
cessor,

George Sandys, who m. Margaret Cur-
wen, and was *. at his demise, in 1584, by
his son,

William Sandys, who espoused Marga-
ret, daughter of John Dixon, and had issue,

1. George, slain fighting against the
Scotch in 1547.

2. William, who resided at Colton
Hall until he removed to the priory
of Conishead, which he purchased
from the crown, in the 2nd of Ed-
ward VI. He d. in the first year of
Elizabeth, and was s. by his only
son,

Francis, in ward to the Queen
until the 13th of her majesty's
reign, when he sued out livery
of his estates in Furness, and
elsewhere. He d. s. p.

3. Edwin, in holy orders, D.D. and
eventually Archbishop of York.
This very eminent prelate died in
1558, and from him lineally descended

Samuel Sandys, esq. chancellor of
the Exchequer in the reign of
George II., who was elevated
to the peerage, as Baron San-
dys, of Ombersley, in 1743; a
dignity that expired with his son
and successor, Edwin, Lord
Sandys, in 1797, when the es-
tates of the family devolved upon
the last lord's niece,
Mary Sandys, then consort
of Arthur, second Marquess
of Downshire. Her lady-
ship was subsequently (in
1802) elevated to the peer-
age herself, as Baroness
Sandys, of Ombersley, (see
Burke's Peerage).
4. Christopher, of Graythwaite, which



estate he removed to in 1555. He d.
in 1590, and was s. by his son,

Adam, of Graythwaite, from whom
lineally sprang

Myles Sandys, esq. of Gray-
thwaite, High Sheriff for
Lancashire in 1708. This
gentleman m. Mary, daugh-
ter and co-heir of William
Knipe, esq. of Fairebank,
in Westmoreland, and dying
in 1715, left two daughters,
viz.

1. Anne, m. to her kins-
man, Thomas Sandys,
esq. of Esthwaite, and
had a son,

Braithwaite, esq. and
d. s. p.

5. Myles, ancestor of the Lords San-
dys, of the Vine, and of the pre-
sent Sir Edwin Bayntum-Sandys,
bart.

6. Anthony.*
The youngest son,

Anthony Sandys, esq. of Esthwaite,
living about the middle of the sixteenth
century, wedded Anne, daughter and heiress
of Robert Mann, esq. of Bullinbrook, in
the county of Lincoln, and was s. at his de-
cease by his only son,

Edwin Sandys, esq. of Esthwaite. This
gentleman espoused Grace, daughter of
Robert Wyvell, esq. of Great Burton, in
Yorkshire, by whom (who d. in 1612) he
left an only son, Samuel. In 1600, Mr
Sandys had a release from Robert, son of
George Sandys, the eldest of the six sons, of
his grandfather, of all title, claim, and right
in the lands of Esthwaite. His will bears
date 8th June, 1625, and was proved the
second of the ensuing month. His son and
successor,

Samuel Sandys, esq. of Esthwaite, who
was left under the guardianship of his uncle,
Solomon Wyvell, wedded Dorothy, daugh-
ter of Gavin Braithwait, esq. of Ambleside,
in Westmoreland, and had issue,

but the present account of the Sandys family
differs in many points from that authority.
