Hi Steve,

You wrote that the earlies Dilke came from Maxtoke Castle in Warwickshire.

Actually Sir Thomas Dilke was the son of Thomas Dilke, who was a (the?) farmer for Leicester Abbey in Leicestershire. He had the manor at Kirkby Mallory, and I believe he was born in Stafforshire in the late 1400's. The abbot granted him many long-term leases for abbey lands before the dissolution.

Regards,
