||On November 7th, 30 Edward I.,
Alexander de Cave was appointed
one of the collectors, in Yorkshire,
of the aid for marrying the king's
eldest daughter (Parl. Writs, i. 133).
In 2 Edward II. he obtained a charter
of free warren in South Cave, Ripplingham, Holm, and Kiplingcotes (Cal.
Rot. Chart., 141). In 1311 he was
one of the keepers of the lands and
tenements which had belonged to the
Templars in the county of York (Fasti
Ebor., i. 376). On Sept. 24th, 1314,
Bishop Kellawe, of Durham, granted
an indulgence of forty days in behalf
of the chapel of the Blessed Virgin
Mary in the church of South Cave, for
the good estate of Alexander de Cave
and Joan, his wife, and for the souls of
Peter and Ellen de Cave, his parents,
who are buried in the church of All
Saints at South Cave (Ibid., 413). In
1316 Alexander de Cave was returned
joint lord of South Cave, North Cliff,
and South Cliff. He occurs as a commissioner of array for the wapentake
of Harthill in 1318, and was elected
knight of the shire for the county of
York in the same year (Parl. Writs.,
ii. 651). To this account, given by
Mr. Scaife in his edition of Kirkby's
Inquest (p. 264n), I can only add that
Alexander de Cave was Sheriff of Yorkshire in 30 Edward I., the year in which
this tax was levied.
