Footnotes

1 The premises here conveyed to Henry, Earl of Lancaster, by William de Bracebrigge and Matilda his wife, were the inheritance of the said Matilda, daughter of William de Walton by his wife Margery de Clayton. This William was brother of John de Walton, whose daughter Margery married Thurstan de Northlegh, and between these two cousins, Matilda and Margery, the estates of Sir Adam de Walton, of Hoole, and Emma his wife, were divided. These estates embraced the manors of Ulneswalton and Much Hoole, 30s. of rent in Kellamergh and the moieties of the manors of Eccleston in Leylandshire, Heskin and Leyland. William de Bracebridge and Matilda his wife gave their moiety of these estates to Henry, Earl of Lancaster, in exchange for the manor of Barlow, parish of Brayton, co. York. The Earl's deed, ratifying this exchange, was dated at Kenilworth, 20th April, 21 Edward III, 1349. There are a number of documents relating to the devolution of these estates in the Great Cowcher of the Duchy of Lanc., vol. ii, f. 87 b to f. 97 b.
2 Cf. no. 110, pt. i, p. 194; no. 124, p. 43, supra.
3 Emma was the widow of Sir Adam de Walton, of Hoole.
4 See note to no. 99, p. 33 supra.
5 The lordship of the manor of Westleigh in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries appears to have been vested in more than one family. It is stated in a pedigree of the Bradshagh family, given in Chetham Soc., vol. xcv, p. 111, that William de Bradshagh and Mabel his wife, daughter and heir of Hugh le Norreys, settled the manor of Westleigh by Fine in 5 Edward II. upon John de Bradshagh and his issue. From other references to this manor we appear to be justified in assuming that the Bradshaghs were mediate tenants of a manor there. Certainly the Urmstons were the superior lords, having acquired the estate by marriage in the time of Edward I. Adam de Westleigh was lord of Westleigh from before 1242 to circa 1272. Sigrith or Sigreda, his daughter and heir, married Richard, son of Richard de Urmston, and was the mother of William de Urmston, son and heir, and Richard. These two brothers alienated the advowson of the church of Westleigh to Sir Robert de Holland in the 11 Edward II. Richard married Alice, one of the four daughters and coheirs of Richard de Lathom of Parbold (Cf. note p. 120), and had issue an only daughter, who married Henry de Trafford, here described as of Prestwich. This Henry was the son and heir of Robert de Trafford (Cf. note p. 133), of Prestwich, and was not the ancestor of the Traffords of the Garrett, as is generally alleged. The manor of Urmston continued in the descendants of William de Urmston, who was lord of Westleigh in 1322 and 1346, for several centuries.
6 The Tyldesleys were lords of the manor of Astley from the thirteenth to the sixteenth century. Hugh de Tyldesley, son of Henry, held one ploughland here in 1212. Henry de Tyldesley held it in 1242, and Henry his son in 1271, who was the father of Hugh, who held the manor at the death of Henry de Lacy, Earl of Lincoln, in 1311 (see pt. i, p. 197) and also in 1322. The Tyldesleys continued to be the superior lords until the time of Elizabeth, but either in the time of Edward II or Edward III, Hugh de Tyldesley enfeoffed Emma (? his sister) and Adam de Trafford her husband of the manor. After the deaths of Adam and Emma, which appear to have occurred shortly before 1353, Ellen and Cecily, their daughters and coheirs, released their right to Richard de Radcliffe, under circumstances which point to the belief that Richard de Radcliffe, father of Robert named in this Fine, had married another sister of Hugh de Tyldesley, by whom he had issue Robert, born ante nuptias to whom Adam de Trafford and Ellen his wife conveyed the manor of Astley by this Fine on 6th June, 1344. Upon his death, before 1353 without issue, the said Ellen and Cecily released their right in the manor in consideration of 100 marks to Richard de Radcliffe, as kinsman and heir of Robert, in accordance with the limitations declared in 1344.
