      • JOHN LORD SCROPE, OF UPSAL.
        He was summoned to Parliament from 7th January, 4 Henry VI. 1426, to 26th May, 33 Henry VI. 1455, and on the 26th February, in the 10th year of that reign, 1432, was constituted Treasurer of the King's Exchequer. Dugdale states, that he died November 15th, 34 Henry VI. 1455, which is followed by Blore in his elaborate pedigree of this family in the History of Rutland. Seger, in his MS. Baronage, however, fixes his death on the 15th November, 37 Henry VI. 1438, but from Cottonian MSS. Claudius C.vin. it appears, that Thomas le Scrope was found son and heir of John Lord Scrope of Masham, 34 Henry VI. which corroborates Dugdale's account.

        ... The contradictory pedigrees of the descendants of this Lord Scrope will be noticed in notes to the other wills of the family, and it is only necessary to remark here that the clause in the codicil to his testament renders it nearly certain that it was his son Thomas who married the daughter of Lord Greystock, and which Blore states to have been the case.


        Will of John Scrope, Knight, Lord of Upsal, 1st July, 29th Henry VI. 1451.

        My body to be buried in a new tomb made for me and Lady Elizabeth, my wife, in the Chapel of St. Stephen, commonly called Scrope's Chapel, within the Cathedral Church of St. Peter at York; ...John my son and heir, Thomas my younger son, and Master William le Scrope my brother, my executors.
        CODICIL TO THE SAID WILL. Dated March 18th, 1453. To Alianore, my daughter, ... to John, son and heir of Henry Lord Scrope, of Bolton, ... and whereas John, my son, whom I appointed in my will to be one of my executors, has departed this life, ... that if before my death, Thomas, my son, marry the daughter of the Lord Greystock, ...
