Marmaduke Thirkeld, Esq., son of Christopher Thirkeld, Gent., was born about 1531, being age 24 and more at his father's death (1555).1,2 He died 10 March 1592/93.3,4,5,2

Marmaduke married Elizabeth Hylton, daughter of Sir William de Hylton, Knt. and Margaret Metcalf, before 4 June 1566 when he and his wife were named in her mother's will.3,6

Marmaduke died intestate and administration of his estate was granted 20 April 1593. Following that, it appears there was at least one Inquisition post mortem: 29 Oct 35 Eliz (1593). No other relevant IPMs have been found in print, nor found on Discovery, but Surtees gives a date of 10 Feb 38 Elizabeth (1595/96).

Jackson abstracted the IPM: "Inq. taken at Pocklington co. York after the Death of Marmaduke Threlkeld Esq. decd. Seized of the Manor of Easthorpe &c., &c. By Indenture dated 20 June, 11 Eliz. (1569), (between the said Marmaduke Thirkeld of Easthroppe Esq., of the one part and Anthony Langdaill of Santon of the other part) it was agreed that Richard Langdaill son and heir of the said Anthony and Joyce Thirkeld daughter of the said Marmaduke should marry together. The marriage took place and they had issue William Langdaill and both are dead. Marmaduke Thirkeld died 10 March last and William Langdale son of Richard by the said Joyce is his next heir and is aged 16.
     Inq. P.M., 36 Eliza. Part i., No. 104."

Surtees reports the three other daughters, citing the 10 Feb IPM, but they are not mentioned in Jackson's abstract of the IPM.2,5,7,3
