Birth: 1395
Bedfordshire, England
Death: Jan. 11, 1446
Somerset, England

Sir Giles Daubeney (died 1445/46) was the 6th Baron Daubeney, an English knight, and a county sheriff. His effigy can be seen today in South Petherton, Somerset, England.

Daubeney was the second son of Sir Giles Daubeney and Margaret (who is said to have been the daughter of Sir John Beauchamp). He was born in Kempston, Bedfordshire, Bedfordshire; and was baptized there on 25 October 1395.[1]

During the years between 14181421 he served in the French wars. He was a Knight of the Shire for Somerset in 1424/25 and 1429; and was also Sheriff of Somerset and Dorset from January 1425 to December 1426; and was Sheriff of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire in 1431/32.

Daubeney's first wife was Joan, third daughter of Sir Philip Darcy, Lord Darcy (in Knaith, Lincolnshire). Following her death, Daubeney married, sometime before 18 May 1436, Mary, eldest daughter and co-heir of Simon Lake of Cotham, Nottinghamshire. Mary died on 17 February 1442/1443 and was buried in South Petherton, Somerset. Daubeney then took for his third wife a woman named Alice. On 11 January 1445/46, at the age of 50, he died at Barrington, Somerset. His wife re-married after his death; and died on 26 or 27 March 1455.
