62. (C. p. 42; D. art. 70).—Thomas f. Cospatric, with consent
of Grecia his wife and his heirs, grants to the abbey 8 acres in
Seton, on the south and west of Aykegile, next the 32 acres
belonging to the abbey. [Date after that of nos. 55 and 55a, but
before the death of Thomas in 1201.]
63. (C. pp. 42, 43).—William f. Symon de Schefteling quitclaims to the abbey his grange of Flemingby within the bounds
named in the charter of Sir Thomas f. Cospatric. Witness [from
H. 1]—Robert de Korkebi, sheriff. [Simon de Sheftlings, according to the Distributio Cumbriae, received a moiety of Dearham
from Alan f. Waldeve. Sir Robert de Corby was acting sheriff
(C. & W. Trans. N.S. xiv, 241) in 1212.]
64. (C. p. 43).—Patrick f. Thomas f. Cospatric grants to Holm
abbey for the fishery in the Derwent four perches of land at the
head of the fishery towards the Derwent, with Wytherhoke, and
at the other head of the same fishery 20 perches with Wytherhoke.
[Canon James Wilson read 'wickerhoc' and suggested the
meaning of 'wicker-hooks'; but the dialect word might possibly
be a survival of O.N. vidar-hüggst, right of woodcutting. Patrick
dates c. 1212–50.]

grants to Holm abbey a fishery on the sea at the mouth of the
Alne [river Ellen] and leave to have a fishing-boat with appurtenances on the sea there, and to land wherever they please on the
land of Alynburgh [Ellenborough]; also a toft by the shore for
fishing. [No. 63 suggests a date c. 1212].
65a. (H. 2).—John de Danthorp, knight, confirms the charters
of William de Sceftling; one granting the grange of Flemingby
[no. 63] and the other [no. 65] a fishery on the Alne. He quitclaims all rights in Flemingby by bounds named in the charter of
Cospatric f. Orm and his son [no. 49]. Sealed on Friday after
St. Luke's day [Oct. 18], 1276. Witness—Sir Robert de Hampton, sheriff of Cumberland.
