Philippe de Neville is a descendant of Magna Carta surety barons Roger le Bigod, Hugh le Bigod, Richard de Clare, Gilbert de Clare, John FitzRobert, John de Lacy and Saher de Quincy.



Philippe (Neville) Dacre was a member of aristocracy in England.


Father Sir Ralph Neville, 1st Earl Westmoreland, 4th Baron Neville[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] b. bt 1364 - 1367, d. 21 Oct 1425.

Mother Margaret Stafford[1][2][3][4][6][7] b. bef 1364, d. 9 Jun 1396


Richardson makes no statement regarding the date or place of Philippe's birth.[8] Since she married before 20 July 1399, a broad estimate of her birth year might be 1380, making her about 19 at her marriage.

Her husband was born at Naworth Castle, Cumberland, 27 October 1387. [8], making him 12 or younger at the time of marriage. This is a reminder that marriages were often arranged as matters of economic and political alliance between families well before the children were of age.

Their second child, Thomas, was born 1410, suggesting that their first child, John, was born 1408, further suggesting that they began living as man and wife in 1407. Her husband, born 1387, would have been 20 that year, and if she were 17, her birth year would be placed as 1390. At this point 1390 appears to be the best estimate for her birth year.


She married Sir Thomas Dacre, 6th Baron Dacre of Gillesland, of Englewood Forest, Cumberland, England, son of Sir William de Dacre, 5th Lord Dacre of Gilsland and Joan de Douglas, before 20 July 1399.


They had [1][2][3][4][5][6][9]8 sons and 2 daughters: [8]

  1. Sir John, living 1439, dead by c. 1454 [8]
  2. Sir Thomas, b. 1410, Brampton, Cumberland; d. bt 1453 - 5 Jan 1458.[10][3][6]
  3. Sir Randolph, 1st Lord Dacre of the North [8]
  4. Sir Humphrey, b. 1424, Naworth Castle, Brampton, Cumberland. 2nd Lord Dacre of the North, Governor of Carlisle Castle, Warden of the West Marches. Died 30 May 1485.[1][3][6]
  5. Ralph[8]
  6. Richard[8]
  7. George[8]
  8. John (again)[8]
  9. Joan or Jane, b. 1415, Brampton, Cumberland; wife of Thomas de Clifford, 8th Lord Clifford. Died before May 1453.[11][1][5][6]
  10. Margaret, wife of John le Scrope of Masham. Living 18 Sep 1452.[12][1]

The following unproved child was also linked on WikiTree, but has been delinked pending obtaining documentation:

  1. Elizabeth Dacre, b. 1408, Halton, Lancashire; married Harrington


Philippe Neville died between 8 July 1453 and 5 January 1458.[1][3][6]

Verified this profile as being on a project-approved trail (from Peyton-434 to Clavering-13 & Quincy-226, following "Magna Carta badged" profiles to those surety barons). The project account for the Magna Carta Project will be added as a manager later this month to meet WikiTree guidelines (see Help:Project-Managed_Profiles). Give me a holler if you have any questions. ~ Liz, Magna Carta project member

Hi! This profile is in the Magna Carta trail between the Gateway Ancestor Robert Peyton and Magna Carta surety baron Saher de Quincy.

See Magna Carta suggested lines for the profiles between Robert and Maud, de Quincy's 3x-gr-granddaughter. This trail has just been placed in the queue for review. For more information about the Magna Carta project, see the project page. To see information about the 800th Anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta, see Magna Carta 800th.
