i have been looking for the dawnay line too. i have guy dawnay, knight abt 1463 married to a jane darnell. then son , john dawnay , knight married to Dorothy Neville (b march 27,1496 of snap hall, Yorkshire. d Oct 23 ,1592) her parents were baron Richard Neville and Ann Staford( also spelled with 2 f or DE Stafford). they had a daughter Ann dawney. she married john conyers and had a son john conyers. there is much around on the nevilles ( spelling can be DE Neville , or with out the last le at end). the conyers and Nevilles are lines well documented .families going back to the Plantagenet's kings. i don't know any more after sir guy dawnay or more about this family, or if this Jane or jean Darnell was in fact his wife . then ,if so, who her family was.those are the dawneys in my line and i have not gotten to looking into them as yet.
