(16) HENRY DARELL of Scotney and Lamberhurst, Kent (1465-1536)
Born 1465; died 1536 (Will dated 1 February 1536, proved in PCC 3 July 1536); buried St Katherine’s Chapel in the parish church of Lamberhurst (as per his will); Son of Thomas & Thomasine (15, above)
(married 1490, at Cralle Place, Kent, ELIZABETH CHENEY or CHEYNEY, daughter of William Cheney of Cralle) .

Arms the same as his father.
He was recorded as “Master Henry Darrell” on the Visitation pedigree of 1530/1, and in his will of 1536 he described himself as “esquire”. He bequeathed six shillings and eight pence to the high altar in Lamberhurst church, and a further five shillings each to the high altars of the neighbouring churches at Goudhurst, Ticehurst and Wadhurst. Forty shillings were reserved to pay for repairs to Lamberhurst church, and the testator decreed that a trigentall mass be said or sung by an honest priest for his soul and for all Christian souls after his decease. He constituted his widow and his son Thomas to be his executors, and they were to receive the residue of his estate.

1. Thomas, see below.
2. Richard , clerk in Holy Orders. From his brother’s will (1557) he was bequeathed the bed wherein he used to lie - which stood in the room over the New Parlour at Scotney - and all the clothes and apparel to it. He also received the mare colt of his brother’s sorrel mare that was suckling on her that year.
3. Stephen 19, who had given white damask for a rope for Lamberhurst church that was stored in his brother’s coffer. From Thomas Darell’s will he was granted the remaining years of the lease that his brother had in a certain woodland called “East Wood”, paying to his nephew Thomas Darell junior the sum of ten shillings a year in rent, which he had been previously paying to the testator. His daughter Mary lived with his brother since her youth, and Thomas Darell left her a heifer bullock aged one year and more in his will.
4. (Sir) George , who died without issue. It appears that he died before his brother Thomas.
5. Edward 20, who died without issue. It appears that he died before his brother Thomas.
