Lucy was the daughter of Anthony de Luci (1283 Egremont, Cumberland-June 10 1343) and Elizabeth de Tilliol (died in 1343, daughter of Robert de Tilliol). Lucy's year of birth is an estimate.

Her father was warden of Carlisle Castle and Chief Justiciar of Ireland (prime minister) in 1331. He was the son of Thomas de Luci (born in 1250 Burgh, Cumberland) and Isabel Bolteby (born in 1254 Northumberland). The parents of Thomas were Alan Multon (born in 1189 Multon) and Alice of Lucy (born in 1289 Egremont). Alice of Lucy was the daughter of Richard of Lucy (1179 Cockmouth Castle, Cumberland) and Ada Moreville (1178 Lidel, Cumberland). Ada was a direct descendant of William, 1st Baron of Estouteville (born in 1048 in Estouteville-Ecalles, Seine-Maritime, France). She also descends from Geoffrey V (Plantagenet) Duke of D' Anjou, Bertrade of Montfort- Queen of France, several Kings of Sweden, and numerous other nobleman and women according to Sharon Fleiner Smith Kindron at Rootsweb.

Anthony de Luci fought at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314. He was captured and ransomed after the battle. In 1318, he was appointed High Sheriff of Cumberland and assigned to defend the city and the Castle of Carlisle against the Scots. In 1321 he was assigned to Parliament as the first Baron Lucy until 1342. He then served a second term as High Sheriff of Cumberland from 1337 to 1342.

In 1323 Luci arrested Andrew Harclay, Earl of Carlisle for negotiating a peace treaty with the Scots for which Harclay was hanged, drawn and quartered. He was then appointed Governor of the Castle of Carlisle and warden of the counties of Westmoreland and Cumberland during the king’s absence in Aquitaine. He had a son, Thomas who succeeded him.

Lucy married William Fitzralph Greystoke. She predeceased her husband. He died in 1359 after marrying Joan Fitzhenry, daughter of Sir Henry Fitzhenry of Ravensworth.

Her husband's widow then married Lucy's nephew, Sir Anthony de Lucy, who died during a crusade to the Holy Lands in 1368. He was the son of Thomas, Baron de Lucy (1309 Cockermouth-1365 London) and Margaret of Multon, Baroness d'Arce (1300 York-1361 Lanercost, Cumberland). His paternal grandparents were Lucy's parents listed above.

Lucy died before 1351 when her husband remarried. She had no sons.
