||Deepdale, on the east side of Weaponness (Oliver's Mount), extends from one
to three miles south of Scarborough.
||Throxenby, Scalby par. At the
time of Kirkby's Inquest (p. 140)
William de Morers was the tenant here
under Henry de Percy. He resided at
Elvington in the Wapentake of Ouse
and Derwent, and is mentioned below
as one of the taxpayers there. As his
Inq. p.m. (8 Edw. II., No. 65b) chiefly
relates to Throxenby, I give extracts
from it here. It was taken at York on
Saturday after the feast of St. Hilary,
8 Edward II. (Jan. 18th, 1314–5), when
the jurors found (inter alia) that William
de Morers held certain lands and tenements in Thurstanby of Sir Henry de
Percy deceased, for the term of his life,
of the grant (ex dimissione) of the same
Henry, made in 2 Edw. II., namely, a
manor in Thurstanby worth 5s a year;
40 acres of arable land of the demesnes
(dominicis), at 12d an acre, 40s; 5 acres
of meadow in the demesnes at 2s, 10s;
a certain park, the agistment in which
was worth 13s 4d; a certain wood, from
which the sale of wood was worth 6s 4d;
9 tenants at will holding 16 bovates of
land, at 4s the bovate, 64s; 5 cottars
holding 5 cottages and paying 6s 8d;
and a certain halmote court (quoddam
Halmotum) worth 60s a year. Sum in
all, 7li. Henry, son of the same Sir
Henry (de Percy), was William (de
Morers') next heir, and would be the age
of 15 on the feast of St. Agnes, 8 Edw.
II. (Jan. 21st, 1314–5).
||Now Loftmarsh, about two miles
west of Marishes Station. Called Loftemarres in 1535 (Rievaulx Chart., p. 353).
In Domesday (ff. 5b, 16b, 84b) it appears
under the forms Loctemares and Loctemersc. Loftus-in-Cleveland, called in
Domesday Loctehusum, presents an
instance of a similar change of Domesday Locte- into the modern Loft-. The
grange here belonged to Rievaulx Abbey.
||Cayton, Osgodby, and Killaby.
||Newton, near Pickering.
||Burniston, Scalby par.
||Sawdon, Brompton par.
||Probably a corruption of the placename, Ugglebarnby in Whitby Strand.
||Irton, Seamer par.
||A mistake for Cloughton, Scalby
par., which is not mentioned elsewhere.
In 1299, Adam, son of Adam de Dugelby,
gave a capital messuage in Clocton, with
three oxgangs of land and four crofts,
to the Canons of Bridlington (Burton's
Mon. Ebor., 221).
||Kekmaresse, Lownde in le Marres,
Selley Brigge, and Newhouse are all mentioned in the Ministers' Accounts (1538)
for Rievaulx (Rievaulx Chart., p. 325),
and were situated near Marishes Station.
The two last are still existing, the last
being the Newehusum of Domesday
(fo. 16b). Kekemarrays (the Domesday
Ghigogesmersc or Chigomersc) has
disappeared. The district along the
Derwent seems to have been as subject
to floods in early times as it is now.
Besides Loftmarsh and Kekemarrays
which appear in this roll, Domesday
(fo. 84b) also mentions Parvum Mersc,
Ouduluesmersc, Aschelesmersc, Chiluesmersc, and Maxudesmersc, all in this
||Newby, Scalby par.
||Hutton Bushel. Preston has not
quite disappeared. It is represented by
what is hardly a hamlet. It is mentioned
in Kirkby's Inquest, which was taken
in 1284–5, but not in the Nomina
Villarum, dated 1315–6. Still known
in 1560 (Yorks. Fines. Tudor. i. 242).
||On 10 Kalend. Nov. (Oct. 23rd),
1320, Maud de Bruys had licence from
the archbishop to have divine service
celebrated "in honesto oratorio suo infra
manerium de Preston in par. de Hoton
busshel" (Reg. Melton, fo. 234b).
||Newbigging, Filey par.
||Aislaby, Middleton par. Domesday
Aslachesbi, Aslachebi, the first half of
the word depending on the Scandinavian
personal name Aslac, A. S. Oslac.
Aislaby, in the parish of Egglescliffe,
near Yarm, is the same name, but
Aislaby near Whitby has a different
origin, appearing in Domesday as
Asuluebi, that is the by of Asulf, or as
it would be in A.S., Oswulf.
||Farmanby, Ellerburn par.
||The site of Roxby Castle is marked
about one mile and a half west of
||Otherwise Braioa. It had nothing
whatever to do with the somewhat likesounding name Brus. Curiously enough,
both families bore a lion rampant as their
arms. Egidius, or Giles de Breus, inherited the manor here from his mother
Alice, wife of Richard de Breus and
daughter and heiress of William le
Rus, and Agatha, daughter and heiress
of Roger de Clera (The Genealogist, v.
318). The manor had passed into the
hands of William le Latimer before
1308 (Guisbrough Chart. ii. 307). Dec.
12th, 1303. Dunfermelyn. Grant to
William le Latimer junior of a market
on Mondays at his manor of Syvelington, and a fair on the eve, day, and
morrow of St. Martin in winter (Nov.
11th), and of free warren in all his
demesne lands there (Charter Roll. 32
Edw. i. No. 80).
