The descent of the manor of Hutton Roof can be traced from Gilbert
son of Ketel de Hotonriwe, who lived in the time of Henry II and
Richard I, down to Joan, daughter and heir of John de Hotonroef,
knt., who was under age in 1350 and her marriage in the gift of
Thomas de Redemane. In 1246 the vill of Hutton Roof was divided
between Alice and Christiana, daughters and coheirs of Gilbert de
Hotonruf and their respective husbands, but only one fourth of the
vill remained to Adam Sturnel, son of Richard and Christiana,
because he alienated a fourth part of the vill to Roger de Burton
before the year 1303.
Possibly the above-named Joan married a cadet of the Cumberland
family of Moriceby, a circumstance which might arise through the
marriage of Henry de Redman, before 1359, to Margaret, relict of
Hugh de Moriceby, who died early in 1349. Henry de Redman was a
near kinsman of Thomas de Redman, who had the custody of Joan's
land and her marriage in 1350. In any case Hugh de Moriceby in
1375, and John de Moriceby in 1411 were lords of the manor. From
the later date no further mention of the lordship of the manor has
been discovered. Three hundred years later the tenants of Hutton
Roof held the manor for a rent of 13s. 4d. of the Marquis Fee.
The Burton and Sturnel interests in the vill cannot be traced later
than 1361, when Anthony de Burton possessed lands in Barbon,
Mansergh, Lupton and Hutton Roof. The Redman interest can be
traced in 1375 by the rent of 3s. 4d. paid by Thomas de Redmane,
which rent had been reduced by 1411 to 3s., which was then paid
by . . . . . Redman. Another portion of the vill, possibly that held
in 1351 by Agnes, relict of John de Doresflet, may be traced as the
tenement held in 1375 and 1411 by Simon de Heversham for 3s. 4d.
rent. In the last named year John de Bourdale appears as holding
lands in Hutton Roof for 16d. rent, which descended to Christopher
Bowerdale, who died in 1611, holding by the same rent.
