I have some info on Sir William Gascoigne, knighted by The earl of Northumberland at the Battle of Wakefield in 1460. He married Margaret Percy and is buried at All saints Church Harewood, in west yorkshire. His tomb is very interesting and can be seen, with other Gascoigne tombs, all made of alabaster. Arrangements can be made via the Harewood estate office. Harewood is now on the site of Gawthorpe Hall, the home of the Gascoignes for generations. The ruins are now under the lake at Harewood!
Hope this helps, have got more info if you want it.
William Gascoigne.
