13 This fine is extant; see abstracts of Pedes Finium in Vol. III. It is dated 12th May, 1209.
14 Robert fitz Noel died, according to Eyton, circa A.D. 1171. See also Vol. II., p. 256, of "Collections."
15 Thomas Noel died A.D. 1206. See the Pipe Rolls in Vol. II. of "Collections," p. 144.
16 Alice, the eldest daughter and co-heir of Thomas Noel, married William de Harecurt, A.D. 1200. See Vol. II., p. 105, of these "Collections." She was a widow A.D. 1221, and was dead A.D. 1235.
17 Joan, second daughter of Thomas Noel, the other co-heir, married first Thomas fitz Eustace, A.D. 1201. See Vol. II., p. 105, of "Collections." She married for a second or third husband Alexander Bacon, and survived him. See the deeds near the end of this Chartulary.
18 William de Harecourt, who married Alice Noel, was son of Robert de Harecourt ; Robert de Harecourt occurs in the "Liber Niger" of A.D. 1166 as a sub-tenant of Ivo de Harecourt, who held seven Knights' fees of the Earl of Warwick. In the same Feodary, Richard, son of William de Harecourt, is returned as holding Stanton in Oxfordshire of the King. William de Harecourt who married Alice Noel seems to have succeeded to the possessions both of Ivo de Harecurt and of Richard de Harecourt, but the exact mode of descent is involved in mystery. This William de Harecourt was a person of considerable note during the reign of King John, holding many public employments. In 1218 he joined the Crusade, and was dead in 1221.
19 Richard de Harecourt died A.D. 1258, leaving William his son and heir, then thirty years of age. The inquisition on his death is extant. The writ of diem clausit extremum is dated 2nd April, 42 H. III., and the inquisition states he held of the King in capite one-fifth part of a Knight's fee in Stretton in Leicestershire, which was worth £16 annually; one Knight's fee in Bosworth, held of the Earl of Wynton, and worth £50; and a Knight's fee in Ayleston, held of the same Earl, worth £30; a Knight's fee in Kybeworth, held of the Earl of Warwick, and worth £30; a Knight's fee in Newton and Sheynton (Shenton) (fn. 40) held of the Earl of Warwick, and worth £20, all in the county of Leicester.
He also held a Knight's fee in Morton, co. Warwick, of the Earl of Warwick, which was worth £20, and half a Knight's fee in Braunstone of William Burdet, which was worth £20; a Knight's fee in Shepe (Sheepey, co. Leicester), of Richard de Canvill, which was worth £10; and that he held Staunton in Oxfordshire in capite by service of three Knights' fees, which was worth £43, and Ellinhale and Ronton in co. Stafford. All the above manors at this date appear to have been held in demesne.
20 Orabel was daughter of Saer de Quinci, Earl of Winchester. Her father gave to Richard de Harecourt in marriage with her two Knights' fees, consisting of Market Bosworth in Leicestershire, Shenton, and Aylestone.
21 William de Harecurt and Hillaria his wife occur in a suit at the Northampton Assizes of A.D. 1269. He was dead very shortly afterwards, for on the Patent Roll of the same year Justices are appointed to try a plea which the Prior of Ronton arraigned against Illaria, widow of William de Harecourt, respecting a hedge thrown down in Ellenhale.
22 This Richard de Harecourt was a minor at his father's death, and proved his age A.D. 1278. (Inquisition No. 109, 6 E. I.) He died at the early age of 36, leaving John his son and heir then 18 years of age, a curious illustration of the early marriages of the heirs of great families who are in ward, for his eldest son must have been born when Richard was only 18 years of age. The writ of "diem clausit extremum" is dated 1st March, 21 E. I. The return to it differs in many points from the Inquisition of A.D. 1258. It states that Richard held Boseworth of John, Earl of Bowham, one of the heirs of Roger de Quinci, Earl of Winton, for the service of one Knight's fee, and the vills of Stretton, Kynelingworth (North Kilworth), and Guldemorton (Gillmorton), appurtenant to Bosworth. Also the vills of Shepeye and Muth (Mythe); and in Oxfordshire he held Staunton of the King for the service of one Knight's fee, an assart also of the King for certain services (specified) appurtenant to Woodstock Park; and that John de Harecourt, son of Richard, was his eldest son and heir, and was 18 years of age at the last Feast of all Saints. Also that Richard six months before his death had enfeoffed his son Henry and his wife Alianora of £24 of annual rent from the manor of Bosworth. This Henry although married could not have been above 16 years of age.
23 John de Harecourt died A.D. 1330, leaving William his son and heir 30 years of age (Inquisition p.m.). It was during the era of this John that the Chartulary was compiled, for the original pedigree of the Founder's descendants terminates with this John de Harecourt, and this date corresponds also with the character of the handwriting.
24 The widow of Roger fitz Henry of Haughton.
25 Frankeville, from the deeds which follow, appears to have been a member of Ellenhall; but if so, the name is now obsolete.

40 The inquisition on Roger de Quinci, Earl of Winton states he died seised of two Knights' fees in Bosworth, Sheynton and Ayleston, held by William de Harcurt.
