Footnotes

1 Baldwin de Brume held four oxgangs in Poulton in Amounderness of Matilda de Worsley, circa 1220, who released her right therein to the Priory of Lancaster (Register of Lancaster Priory, p. 417). He had two sons, (1) John, who had William, Nicholas, and John; and (2) Robert, father of the defendant above named, who by this concord settles two and a half oxgangs of this estate upon his daughter Joan.
2 These estates descended to Joan, daughter and heiress of Alan de Singleton, as heir to her brother Thomas, who died young. She married Thomas Banastre of Bretherton, great-grandfather of Sir Thomas Banastre, K.G., who was drowned at sea, 16th December, 1379.
3 Ellen, widow of Henry de Torbock here called Lathom, was lady of Turton, and was so returned in the survey of 1320 (Mamcestre, p. 339). By this concord she obtains recognition of her title to an estate in Turton. It is therefore possible that she may have been of the family of Turton. In the pedigree of Torbock it is suggested that she was a Holland.
4 Reserving the rights of Sir John de Langton, as chief lord of the fee of Makerfield.
5 A concord to establish a settlement of lands in Pemberton by Adam de Pemberton upon his son Hugh.
6 Cf. note to No. 118, p. 198. The claim made by William de Standish was to the advowson of the church of Wigan, respecting which he had a suit in 1312 against Sir John de Langton.
7 Sir Alan de Copeland, Knt., is said to have married the sister of Sir John de Kirkby, doubtless the deforciant in this concord. The manor of Bolton in Furness had been given to Furness Abbey by the grandfather of this Alan, but Sir John de Kirkby having acquired it from the Abbey, under circumstances recounted in the Furness Coucher Book, appears to have settled it upon the said Alan and Margaret in fee. The above concord confirmed this settlement.
8 See No. 144, p. 208.
9 A concord establishing a settlement of the manor of Eccleston upon Alan de Eccleston, by his grandfather Robert. Alan le Norris, of Sutton, reserves his title as mesne tenant between Robert de Eccleston and the Earl of Lincoln.
10 Probably Mearley.
11 William de Greystock married Joan, daughter of Richard, son of Adam de Hoghton. After the death of her brother Richard without issue, her children succeeded to that portion of the Hoghton estates described above, which did not pass to Sir Richard de Hoghton, her cousin, in whose descendants the bulk of the Hoghton estates descended.
12 A concord to establish a settlement of the Clifton estates upon the sons of William de Clifton and Aline, his wife, successively in tail. Eustace de Codesbeck seems to have been either mortgagee of these estates, or trustee under a prior settlement.
13 A concord to establish a settlement of an estate in Bretherton and Walton upon John, son of Richard Banastre and Agnes, his wife (?), daughter and heir of Adam, son of William de Bretherton, for life, and upon William their son in tail, with remainder to John, son of Adam Banastre, brother of the first named John Banastre in tail, remainder to the right heirs of Master Richard Banastre.
This concord, and No. 135 antea, give the following pedigree. Richard Banastre of Bretherton, had issue Richard, of Bretherton, called Master Richard in this concord, who probably married Isold, daughter of Richard Wolf (Ulf) of Wyresdale, and had one oxgang of land in Garstang in marriage with her. He had issue (I) William, who probably died young; (2) John Banastre of Bretherton, who by his wife (? Agnes, daughter of Adam, son of William de Bretherton), had issue a son William; (3) Adam Banastre, who had issue a son John; (4) a daughter Alice. It is probable that Master Richard Banastre had a Brother Adam, who in 1298 settled one carucate of land in Tarleton upon his sons, in tail; and one carucate of land in Bretherton in like manner, in 1300 (Cf. Nos. 82 and 96 antea). He had issue (1) John, (2) Thomas, who was probably ancestor of the Banastres of Bank; (3) William, and (4) Robert. This family was wholly distinct, and probably unconnected with the family of Banastre who acquired Broughton, Singleton, and other estates in Amounderness by marriage with the heir of Alan Singleton of Broughton and Singleton.
14 Possibly this is a mistake of the clerk, and that the year should be 35 Edward I., 1307. The regnal year ended on November 20th.
15 Hugh de Atherton held two oxgangs of land in Glodwick in chief of the King, after the death of Edmund, Earl of Lancaster, by the service of 3s. 2d. for all service. (Birch Feodary). This render probably included the service of the other moiety of the hamlet, which had formerly been a member of the Montbegon fief in Salford Hundred.
16 This concord seems to suggest an error in the Trafford pedigree printed in Baines' History of Lancashire, edition 1893, iii., p. 236. Henry de Trafford, living temp. Henry III., had issue by Lora his wife (Cf. No. 43, p. 170), Henry, his heir, Richard (Ibid.), and John (Ibid.). This Henry is the deforciant in this concord. At Lancaster Assizes, 20 Edward I., he claimed against his cousin the manors of Chadderton and Foxdenton, referring in the pleadings to their common grandfather Richard de Trafford. The said Henry, by Margaret his wife, had issue Henry, his heir, Richard, Robert, Ralph, and Thomas, all named in the settlement, which this concord established. He died in 1334, when he was succeeded by his grandson Henry, son and heir of the Henry, son of Henry of this concord. This concord was probably made after the death of Margery, mother of Henry, son of Henry, upon whom the manor of Clifton appears to have been settled, in order to establish a settlement upon her eldest, and other sons successively in tail.
17 John de Hyde is named in the Survey of Manchester, A.D. 1320, with others, as possessing a rateable share of the waste in Denton, containing 240 acres. Cf. pedigree of Hyde of Urmston, Baines' History of Lancashire edition 1888, vol. iii., p. 311.
18 According to the survey of 1346, Isabella de Urswick held the third part of one and a half carucate and one oxgang of land in Over Kellet, rendering yearly 2s. 6d. It is not unlikely that her husband, Adam de Urswick, was father of Sir Robert de Urswick, who was Escheator in co. Lancaster, temp. Richard II., and grandfather of Sir Robert, who was Sheriff of Lancaster in 1415–1418.
19 In the pedigree of Ashton, of Ashton-under-Lyne, the above-named Thomas de Ashton, living circa 1280–1310, is made to be grandson of Orm, son of Ailward, who lived 1135–1160! He appears to have been actually the fourth in descent from Orm.
