Genealogical Account ^lumley-sa

THIS noble and ancient family (which derive their surname from Lumley, a castle with a paik round it, situate on the bank os the river Were in the bilhoprick of Durham) deduce their origin from Osbert de Lumley, whose son Liulph was a nobleman of great reputation in the reign of Edward the Confessor. He married Algitha, daughter to Aldred, earl of Northumberland, whose mother was the youngest daughter of king Ethelred II.

Marmaduke de Lumley, another of the ancestors of this noble earl, was prior of Sr. John of Jerusalem; and Sir Ralph his son was made governor of Berwick upon Tweed, in the tenth year of the reign of Richard II. Two years after he obtained leave of thai king to fortify his manor-house of Lumley, and was knighted. He fat in parliament as lord Lumley, from the eighth year of Richard II. to the first year of Henry IV. inclusive, when he and his eldest son Thomas were both attainted of high treason, but the same was reversed by act of parliament in the first year of the reign of Edward IV.
