Notes:

In "Traces of a Heritage" by Peter Bond, he quotes the following from the 1911 Encyclopedia Britannica under "Dymoke": The name of an English family holding the office of king's champion. The functions of the champion were to ride into Westminster Hall at the coronation banquet and challenge all comers to impugn the king's title. The earliest record of the ceremony at the coronation of an English king dates from the accession of Richard II. On this occassion the champion was Sir John Dymoke."

    Dymoke, the name of an English family holding the office of king's champion. The functions of the champion were to ride into Westminster Hall at the coronation banquet, and challenge all comers to impugn the kings title. The earliest record of the ceremony at the coronation of an English king dates from the accession of Richard II . On this occasion the champion was Sir John Dymoke (d. 1381), who held the manor of Scrivelsby , Lincolnshire , in right of his wife Margaret, granddaughter of Joan Ludlow , who was the daughter and co-heiress of Philip Marmion , last Baron Marmion. The Marmions claimed descent from the lords of Fontenay , hereditary champions of the dukes of Normandy , and held the castle of Tamworth , Leicestershire , and the manor of Scrivelsby. The right to the championship was disputed with the Dymoke family by Sir Baldwin de Freville , lord of Tamworth, who was descended from an elder daughter of Philip Marmion. The court of claims eventually decided in favor of the owners of Scrivelsby on the ground that Scrivelsby was held in grand serjeanty , that is, that its tenure was dependent on, rendering a special service, in this case the championship.
