Charles DYMOKE 1667-1703
Son of Sir Charles Dymoke of Scrivelsby, Lincolnshire, members of a gentry family long established there and which continues to the present day. Successive members of the family have held the title of King's Champion since the late 14th century; it is now a ceremonial role at coronations. MA Magdalene College, Cambridge 1682. MP for Lincolnshire 1698-1703.
Dymoke used an engraved armorial bookplate dated 1702 (Franks *320), though the extent of his library (some of which is likely to have been part of a multi-generational family one) is unknown. His will has no explicit mention of books.
