Walter De Grey was a firm favourite of King John of England and was appointed Lord Chancellor in 1205. Ten years later in 1215, York welcomed De Grey as Archbishop of the See of York. It was de Grey who purchased the village of Bishopthorpe in 1226, paving the way for him to build what remains today as the Archbishop of York’s home – the beautiful Bishopthorpe Palace.
