The Descendants of Adrian de Lucy
Published by Norman Lucey
Content dated 4th May 1999
The ancient family of Lucy can trace their origins back to William the Conqueror and the invasion of England by
the Normans in 1066; almost a thousand years. Few families have such a well documented history. This webpage provides
an index to various articles written by the author regarding this ancient family and it's pedigree.
Table of Contents
The earliest known de Lucy is Adrian de Lucy (born approx. 1064) from Lucé, near Domfront, Normandy,
France and it is probable that the Norman families of this name are all descended from him. Only the early individuals
are listed here, however I do have records linking the families down to the present day in the full pedigree charts;
probably one of the few ancient families able to do this with any level of certainty. Three main family trees exist:-
(a) For Richard de Lucy (about 1089-14th July 1179) Chief Justiciar of England and excommunicated by Becket in
1166 and 1169, Anthony de Lucy (1283-10th June 1343) Chief Justiciar of Ireland and Godfrey de Lucy (about 1124-11th
September 1204) Bishop of Winchester.
(b) For Walter de Charlecote who married Cecily de Lucy (born about 1180), who are the ancestors of Sir Thomas
Lucy of Charlecote (24th April 1532-7th July 1600), Justice Shallow in Shakespeare's "The Merry Wives of Windsor".
(c) For the American Lucy family descended from Daniel Lucy who sailed to Jamestown, Virginia on the ship 'Susan'
The de Lucys are related to Hugh de Montfort-sur-Risle who accompanied William the Conqueror at the Battle of Hastings
in 1066 and Richard & Geoffrey de Lucy signed the Magna Carta. It has not been possible to illustrate such
a large family tree here. However, if you are searching individuals or have a general interest in this historic
family please contact me for further information.
An illustration of the earliest Lucy arms at Petworth House:
"This 1st Earl of Northumberland took for his 2nd wife, Maud Lucy Inheritrix of Thomas,
Lord Lucy, and Relict of Gilbert de Umframville, Earl of Angos etc.
Her Armes were Quarterd and She settled several Honours and Mannours in Cumberland and Northumberland in the 8th
of Richard 2nd." (1381)
