Footnotes

1 Katherine, wife of Sir Robert de Lathum, lord of Lathum, is said, on the authority of the pedigree in the College of Arms, to have been dau. and heir of Thomas de Knowsley. So far as the pedigree of the Knowsley family can be deduced there appear to be some grounds of substituting Robert for Thomas, as the name of Katherine's parent. The Knowsleys, like the Wolfalls and Huytons, appear to have been a very early offshoot from the parent stock of Lathum.
2 This family was a younger branch of Norreys of Haigh and Blackrod, which manors passed by the marriage of Mabel, dau. and heir of Hugh le Norreys, to William Bradshagh. Cf. no. 85, pt. i., p. 185; and no. 86, Edward III. post. It was in no way connected with either Norreys of Sutton, Eccleston, and Rainhill, nor Norreys of Heaton.
3 The family of Bartail were long settled at Bartle, in the townhip of Wood Plumpton. Cf. pt. i., p. 123.
4 Nicholas de Longford was chief lord of Withington. Robert de Birches, his tenant, of Birches. Cf. History of Birch Chapel, p. 71.
5 This Fine proves that Dodsworth's pedigree of Hesketh (MS., vol. cxlii., fol. 110) is correct as regards these three generations, and that be Heralds' pedigree in the "Hesketh Roll" is incorrect.
6 Probably Claughton, in the parish of Garstang. Ralph de Stirzaker, who puts in his claim, was of Stirzaker, in the neighbouring township of Catterall.
7 The Extent of 1322 records that "Baudewyn de Gynes holds the moiety of the manor of Wyresdale with the appurtenances Great Eccleston, Little Eccleston, Great Carleton, Uprauclyffe, Caterall, Rowall with Sowerbye, by the service of 2s. 6d. yearly for[ward of] Lancaster Castle at the term of St. John the Baptist and by the service of half a knight's fee. John de Riggemayden and Marmaduke de Tweng hold the other moiety of the said manor with the appurtenances by the service of 2s. 6d. yearly for ward of Lancaster Castle at the same term and by the service of half a knight's fee." (Lansd. MS. 559, fol. 14). It does not appear how the moiety of the manor came to John de Rigmayden. In the Fine no. 107 supra, the reversion of both moieties was vested in Baldwin de Ghisnes, and it would therefore appear that he enfeoffed John de Rigmayden of one moiety. The following inquests bear upon this Fine :—
Writ of ad quod damnum to Thomas de Burgh, escheator citra Trent. Dated at Knaresburgh, 5th March, 16 Edward II. (1323). Inquisition taken before Thomas de Burgh, Escheator, at Gairstang, co. Lanc., on Monday in the feast of St. Ambrose the Bishop, 16 Edward II. [4th April, 1323], by John le Tailliour, John de Mirsco, Roger the clerk, Richard de Crauen, William del Bonk, John de Hegham, Gilmyn de Hegham, William de Cotome, Edmund de Wedacre, Thomas de Balrig, William de Wetyngham, junior, Richard de Morilegh, and Henry de ffetherby, jurors; who say that it is not to the injury or prejudice of the lord King or others, if the King grants power to John, Son of John De Riggemayden, to give and grant to Gilbert de Singelton and John de Plesington the moiety of one mill in Vproutheclif and the moiety of the manor of Wyresdale, except two carucates and 100 acres of land and the moiety of one mill and 500 acres of wood in the said manor, which are held of the King in chief as of the Honour of Lancastre; to hold to the said Gilbert and John de Plesington and his heirs, of the King and his heirs by the services therefor due and accustomed in perpetuity; so that they, having full seisin thereof, shall be able to give and grant the same to the said John, son of John, to hold for his life as aforesaid; remainder to John de Hornebi, and Thomas, son of John, son of John, and Joan his wife, and the heirs of the bodies of the said Thomas and Joan, to hold as aforesaid; remainder to the right heirs of the said John, son of John, to hold as aforesaid, in perpetuity. The third part of the aforesaid tenements is held of the King in chief as of the Honour of Lancaster, by the service of ward of the Castle of Lancaster, and rendering for the said ward yearly 20d., the which ward of the Castle gives custody and marriage (quæ quidem warda castri dat custodiam et maritagium), and the said third part is worth yearly in all issues 4li. Two parts of the said tenements are held of William de Tweng by the service of one sparrow-hawk yearly, and worth in all issues 8li. yearly. No tenements remain to the said John, son of John, beyond the said gift and concession. (Inq. ad quod damnum, 16 Edward II., no. 78).
Writ of ad quod damnum to Thomas de Burgh, escheator citra Trent. Dated at Knaresburgh, 5th March, 16 Edward II. (1323). Inquisition taken at Gairstang, co. Lanc., before Thomas de Burgh, escheator, on Monday in the feast of St. Ambrose the Bishop, 16 Edward II. [4th April, 1323], by John le Taillour, etc. [as in the other inq. of the same date]. It is not to the injury or prejudice of the King or others, if John, Son Of John De Rigmaidene gives and grants to John de Horneby, Thomas, son of John, son of John de Rigmaidene, and Joan his wife, and the heirs of the bodies of the said Thomas and Joan, two carucates and 100 acres of land, and the moiety of one mill and 500 acres of wood in Wyresdale and Gairstang, which are held of the King as of the Honour of Lancaster; to hold to the said John de Horneby, etc., of the King and his heirs by the services due and accustomed, with reversion to the said John, son of John, and his heirs, to hold as aforesaid in perpetuity. The third part of the said tenements is held of the King as of the Honour of Lancaster, by the service of ward of the Castle of Lancaster, and rendering for the said ward yearly, 10d., the which ward gives custody and marriage; and the said third part is worth yearly in all issues 66s. 8d. And two parts of the said tenements are held of William de Tweng by the service of one sparrow-hawk yearly, and are worth yearly in all issues 6li. 13s. 4d. There remain to the said John, son of John, the moiety of one mill in Vproutheclif and the moiety of the manor of Wyresdale, held, etc. [See the other inq.] Total, in all issues, of this inquisition, 22li. [torn] to John de ffaucomberge and his heirs yearly 10li. (Ibid., no. 78b.)
The Heralds' pedigree introduces a Marmaduke between John de Rigmayden, the father, and Thomas, the son, who married Joan named in the Fine. Thomas was obviously the son and heir of John, son of John de Rigmayden. Cf. no. 154 post. This family possessed the manor of Wedacre, which probably came to John de Rigmayden, senior, by marriage with an heiress of that estate.
8 This Fine may be compared with no. 149, pt. i., p. 210, and no. 168 post. Somewhat similar entails of property upon the sons of Henry de Trafford occur among the Trafford muniments in deeds dated in the 9th, 11th, and 12th years of Edward II. A correction which should be made in the Trafford pedigree gives Henry, son of Henry de Trafford, eight sons in the following order of seniority:—John the eldest, who died during his father's lifetime, circa 12 Edward II., upon whose son and heir, "Henry, son of John, son of Henry de Trafford," the last-named Henry settles the manors of Trafford and Stretford and lands in Withington by Fine of 27th January, 1325; Richard (2); Robert (3); Ralph (4), who died young; Thomas (5); Nicholas (6); Geoffrey (7); and Henry (8). It would appear that Agnes, Cecily, and Joan were sisters of Margaret, wife of Henry, son of Henry de Trafford.

10 See no. 148 supra.
11 This Fine appears to ratify a mortgage of the manor of Barton in Amounderness, and not an alienation, for the family of Barton held this estate for three centuries after the date of this agreement.
12 This would be the estate of Risley. Cf. Genealogies of Culcheth and Risley, by J. P. Rylands, F.S.A. The manor of Culcheth was parted among the four daughters and coheirs of Gilbert de Culcheth, one of whom was the grandmother of Robert, the plaintiff; another, Margery, married first Richard, son of Hugh de Hindley, by whom she had issue; secondly, William de Radcliffe, by whom she had Richard, who with his said mother and father "puts in his claim"; a third daughter, Joan, married Thomas de Holcroft, by whom she had issue Adam, who also, with his said mother, "puts in his claim"; the fourth daughter had issue an only daughter, and therefore puts in no claim. [N.B.—Her mother's pourparty descended through her, so that it is not possible that Hindley of Hindley could have descended from a reputed brother of hers.]
13 This appears to be confirmatory of a sale by Simon Tueson and Alice, his wife, to Sir Robert de Lathom.

17 Margery and her sisters were probably the daughters of an only son, then being deceased, of Richard de Penketh.
18 Alice and Joan, the wife of William, son of Thomas le Clerk, were daughters and coheirs of Robert de Loxhum.
19 She was daughter and heir of Nicholas D'Ewyas, lord of one moiety of Samlesbury, and brought her husband the moiety of the said manor of Samlesbury.
20 Cf. no. 167 supra. An account of the connection of the Scrope family with this township will be found in the Coucher of Whalley (Chetham Society, vol. xx.), p. 952 et seq.
21 op. cit., p. 992.
22 She was probably the daughter of Adam de Bury. Peter de Risley is not named in the Risley pedigree.
