Excerpt:

 

In an old parish register belonging to the Sé I found «Dalemcastro» and «Dalemcrastos». The modern Portuguese rendering is «Lancastre» and «Lencastre».

 

The first, and I am much inclined to think, the only real Lancaster in this country, was Philippa, - daughter of John of Guant, Duke of Lancaster, son of Edward III of England - who married John I of Portugal, and died in 1410. Her sister married the King of Castile. I should like to know if the name still exists in Spain.
