||Separate manors, as in Kirkby's
Inquest (p. 149), where Mr. Scaife
suggests that Kirkby Hall, near the
parish church of St. Mary, about one
mile north, of Kirkby Fleetham, probably
occupies the site of the lost vill of
Kirkby. They appear also as separate
manors in Domesday. On Jan. 1st,
1303–4, the king "intuitu laudabilis et
diutini servicii quod idem Milo nobis
impendit, et de die in diem impendere
non desistit," confirms at Dunfermelyn
to Milo de Stapelton the grant made by
Henry III. to his father, Nicholas de
Stapelton, of freewarren in all his
demesne lands of Stapelton, Kirkeby,
Wath, and Oustwyke, and also makes a
similar grant to him in all his demesne
lands of Kirkeby Fletham and Fletham
(Charter Roll. 32 Edward I. No. 100).
July 21, 1304. Strivelyn. Milo had a
grant of freewarren in all his demesne
lands of West Hathelesay, Suth-Duffeld,
and Wykenthorp (Ibid. No. 52).
||Feb. 1, 1311–2. York. Grant to
Henry le Scrope of freewarren in all his
demesne lands of Fletham, Fencotes,
Est Boulton, Little Boulton, and Pathorn
(Charter Roll. 5 Edward II. No. 27);
and on August 3rd, at Boroughbridge
(apud Pontem burgi) of the same in his
demesne lands of Coverham, Caldebergh, and Aglethorp (Ibid. No. 36).
||Newton-le-Willows, Patrick Brompton par.
Strdton. Scrafton, Coverham par.
||This must be one of the earliest
occurrences of the now popular name
of Metcalfe. No Metcalfe pays tax in
Nappa, nor indeed is the name men
tioned elsewhere in this roll. [It
effectually disposes of the fables touching
the origin of the name, as given in
Lower and elsewhere, by directly
suggesting the true derivation.—J. C.A.
||Oct. 5, 1296. Durham. Licence to
Peter de Thoresby, parson of the church
of Aykesgarth (Aysgarth), that he may
hunt at all times of the year, except in
the fence month, the hare, fox, and cat,
with his own dogs, throughout the chace
of John de Britannia the elder, of Wen
sladale, which is in the king's hands;
provided that he take none of the
king's great game, nor course in the
king's warren (Calendar of Patent Rolls,
1292–1301, p. 207).
||Danby-on-Ure, Thornton Steward par.
||Now called Cowling only, a hamlet
in the township of Burrill-cum-Cowling,
parish of Bedale.
||Brough, Catterick par.
||Hackforth, Hornby par. Jan. 7th,
1304–5. Lincoln. Grant to Thomas,
son of Philip de Burgo, of freewarren
in all his demesne lands of Hakford
and Walton (sic for Walden.) (Charter
Roll. 33 Edw. I. No. 69.)
||Burrill, near Bedale.
||Stainton, Downholme par.
||6 John Haunsard, Lord of Evenwood
(in Com. Dunelm.), used as his arms
three mullets of six points. The deed
to which the seal bearing these arms is
attached is without date, but he occurs
as a party to another deed dated 1294
(Dodsworth MSS. lxviii. 10).
||Aysgarth. Domesday Echescard,
the garth or enclosure of oaks, contrasted with Askrigg (Ascric), or the
Ash Ridge, higher up the valley. Cf.
||Nappa, Aysgarth par., afterwards
the chief seat of the Metcalfe family.
||Shaw or Shaw Cote, in the same
||Clifton-upon-Ure, Thornton Watlass par.
||Ilton-cum-Pott, Masham par.
||Aldborough, in the same parish.
||Scruton. In 1308 Thomas de
Waddeslay, parson of the church of
Kilvyngton, Unfrid de Aystanby, and
Walter Scot, were tried and acquitted
on a charge of breaking into the house
of Lady Joan de Curwenne at Scurueton
(York. Assize Rolls. N. I. 19-4, fo. 9).
March 29, 1252-3. Wautham. Grant
to Avice de Lascell' of freewarren in all
her demesne lands in Fulestouue, co.
Lincoln, and Escrike, Schorueton, and
Cyrneton (Charter Rolls. 37 Hen. III. m. 4).
||Thoralby, Aysgarth par.
||Low Ellington and High Ellington,
||Firby, Bedale par.
||Feb. 20th, 1306–7. Lanercost.
Grant to James de Wandesleye, for
service in Scotland, of a market on
Wednesdays at his manor of Wandes
leye, and of a fair on the eve, day and
morrow of Trinity, also of freewarren
in all his demesne lands there (Charter
Roll. 35 Edw. I. No. 47).
||Aiskew, Bedale par.
||Ilton, Masham par.
||Preston-under-Scar, Wensley par.
||Kirkby Fletham par.
||Aynderby Myers with Holtby,
||Jan. 28, 1306–7. Lanrecost. Grant
to Thomas de Coleville of freewarren in
all his demesne lands of Holteby Fencotes (Charter Roll. 35 Edw. I. No. 63).
||Harmby, Spennithorne par.
||Some of these granges can be identified. Dalegrange marks the original
site of the abbey, then called Fors, but
now Grange, to the west of Askrigg;
Forescoter, now Yoroscote; Brocholm'
Cote, Brockhill Cote; Skalgayl, Skellgill; Cambehous, Cams House; Sotebush', Sedbush; Simoundstane, Simon
Stone; Foresdale, Fossdale; Coterdale,
Cotterdale; Holbecklundes, Helbeck
Lunds, are places lying to the west of
Askrigg. Arkelthwayt seems lost, unless
commemorated in Thwaite on the Ure,
south of Cotterdale. Mossdale may
give a clue as to the site of Musetwayt'.
Bleyng survives in Blean, on the east
side of Semmer Water. Kepewyk' not
identified. Wytton' is probably East
Witton, in which parish Jervaulx is
situated. Rokewyk', Rookwith in
Thornton Watlass; Kilgrenhou, Kilgram
Grange in East Witton; Mariford',
Marriforth in Thornton Steward; Rysewyk', Ruswick in Fingall; Fynegale,
Fingall; Newestede, High and Low
Newstead, near Jervaulx, and Braytwayt,
Braithwaite Hall in the East Witton,
can be identified with a fair amount of
certainty. Aigkesg' (unless Aysgarth),
Nova domus, and Colserdale, both
probably near Jervaulx, seem to have
disappeared. Many of these names,
with much interesting matter, occur in
a confirmation by Edward I., dated at
Carlisle, March 20, 1306–7, of a charter
of John, Earl of Richemund, son of
the Duke of Britany, to the monks of
Jervaulx. (Charter Roll. 35 Edw. I.
No. 15.) Feb. 20, 1306–7. Lanercost.
Grant to the abbot and convent of
Jervaulx (de Jerovalle) of a market on
Mondays at their manor of Eastwitton,
and an eight days' fair on the eve and
day of the Assumption of the Blessed
Mary (Aug. 15) and the six days following (Ibid. No. 46).
||Perhaps a mistake for West Scrafton.
||Hutton Hang, Bedale par.
||Carperby, Aysgarth par. March
13th, 1304–5. Westminster. Grant to
Gilbert de Wauton of a market on
Thursdays at his manor of Kerperby,
and of a fair there on the eve, day and
morrow of St. James the Apostle (July
25th), and of another fair on the eve,
day and marrow of St. Andrew the
Apostle (Nov. 30th). (Charter Roll.
33 Edw. I. No. 59.)
||Query, Brouune; uu=w. Probably
under Thorneton Steward, John Browne.
||Swinton, Masham par.
||West Scrafton, Coverham par.
||High Burton, Masham par.
||Downholme. Not mentioned in
||The vill of Ulveshowe has disapappeared. Its position is marked by
Ulshaw Bridge, near Middleham, and
about three miles and a half E.S.E. of
Wensley (Kirkby's Inquest, p. 158n).
||Fearby, Masham par.
||Low Bolton, near Redmire, Wensley
par. In 1328 Galfrid le Scrop had a grant
of freewarren in his demesne lands in
Masham, Bellerby, Gertheston, Hunton,
Silton, Thirne, Aglethorpe, Upsale,
Thornbergh, and Kilvyngton, Com.
Ebor., and Muskham in Com. Notingham; a market on Wednesdays at
Masham; and two fairs in the year,
lasting four days, one on the eve and
day of St. Barnabas the Apostle (June
11th), and the other on the eve and
day of the Assumption of the B.V.M.
(Aug. 15th). (Rot. Cart. 2 Edw. III.

||A grange of St. Mary's, York. This
abbey held eight bovates here at the
time of Kirkby's Inquest (p. 163).
||Swinethwaite, West Witton par.
||At his death, about 1302, he left
two daughters, his co-heiresses, Matilda
and Katherine (Calendarium Genealogicum, ii. 619). There seems some reason
to believe that the first-mentioned
daughter's name was also Agnes. She
is so called in the Calendar of Inquisitiones post mortem (ii. 213), where she
occurs as the wife of Sir Gilbert
Stapleton, second son of Sir Miles
Stapleton, of Carlton (Kirkby's Inq.,
343n). She remarried, as in 1328 a
grant was made to Thomas de Shefeld
and Agnes, his wife, "qui medietatem
manerii de Bedale, de hereditate ipsius
Agnetis, et Johanni de Gray, qui alteram
medietatem ejusdem manerii, per legem
Anglie, post mortem Katerine, uxoris
sue, de hereditate Johannis, filii sui,
necnon filii et heredis ipsius Katerine,
jam tenent," of a fair at Bedale for three
days, namely, on the eve, day and morrow of St. Michael, instead of on the
eve, day and morrow of the Ascension,
as before (Charter Roll. 2 Ed. III.
