On 17 May 1569 George Dacre 5th Baron Dacre Gilsland 9th Baron Greystoke 1561-1569 (8) died. There was a dispute as to whether his uncle Leonard Dacre -1573 should inherit Baron Dacre Gilsland 3C 1473 which would be the case if it was created by letters patent, or whether the Barony was in abeyance between the 5th Baron's (8) three sisters which would be the case of the barony had been created through a writ of summons. Such decisions would normally be referred to the Duke of Norfolk (33) in his capacity as Earl Marshal but he, Thomas Howard 4th Duke Norfolk 1536-1572 (33), had married Elizabeth Leybourne Duchess Norfolk 1536-1567 (33), the mother of the three daughters although she had died in the meantime; he was not impartial - the three daughters were now his step-daughters. The matter was referred to Commissioners who decided the Barony had been created by writ between and was, therefore, abeyant between the three daughters who were now the step-daughters of Thomas Howard 4th Duke Norfolk 1536-1572 (33). He, Thomas Howard 4th Duke Norfolk 1536-1572 (33) subsequently married his eldest son Philip Howard 20th Earl Arundel 1557-1595 (11) to his eldest step-daughter Anne Dacre Countess Arundel 1557-1630 (12).
