Spouse: Mrs. DeGuylpyn

Biography Notes...

In 1206, during the reign of King John of England, the Baron of Kendal gave the Manor of Kentmere to Richard DeGuylpyn for his valor in slaying a wild boar which infested the forests of Westmoreland and Cumberland. From this circumstance, Richard took his armorial device: A field, or, a Sanglier or Boar, Sabled, armed, Tusks Gules. The name DeGuylpyn is no doubt of Norman or French extraction.
