Joan Dacre, whose ancestry is uncertain, married Sir John de Harington, Knt., 1st Lord Harington, son of Sir Robert de Haverington, Knt. and Agnes Cansfield.1

She was probably a daughter of Sir William Dacre: He was her husband's guardian, and the Dacre arms were on the Harrington tomb. A drawing of the tomb was made in 1646 by Daniel King, found in Dodsworth's Mss., lxxxviii, fo. 20. . . "From the character of the armour it is probable that he and his wife are represented by the figures on the Harington tomb there. (Cumb. and Westmorland Arch. Soc. Trans., vol. v p. 109)."1


Sir John de Harington, Knt., 1st Lord Harington b. abt. 1281, d. 2 Jul 1347
