The following is a slightly amplified version of the abstract:—"Albert Gresle, to all his friends, as well French as English, sendeth greeting. Know ye that I have given and by this my charter confirmed to Roger, son of Horm, all my lands of Haistune with the appurtenances, and land called Osoluescrouet, and all Hetune, with large liberties, easements and free customs." (Harl. MS. 2042, f. 42, carta g). This Roger appears to have been the father of Orm de Ashton, who occurs as tenant with others in a concord made in 1202, respecting lands in Dalton, Parbold and Wrightington. (Cf. No. 26, temp. John, p. 18). Orm had issue the above named Thomas de Ashton. On the death of Robert Grelley, 15th Feb. 1282, the custody, during the minority of Thomas Grelley, of land to the yearly value of £6 15s. 11d. in Barton, was given to Adam le Boteler (Patent, 10 Edward I., m. 11). The said Adam died about the end of the year 1282, when this custody appears to have passed to Sir John de Kirkby, of Kirkby-Irleth. He appears to have been enfeoffed of several of the Grelley fees, and also of estates held of Grelley. Consequently we find him holding two and a half fees in Barton, Wrightington, and Parbold in the Extent of the Barony of Manchester, made 13th Sept., 1282 (Mamcestre, p. 169). He and his successors thus became mesne tenants of Ashton, under Grelley and de la Warr, and over-lords of the Ashtons of that place. The pre ent concord was probably the result of proceedings by Thomas de Ashton against Sir John de Kirkby, to secure a recognition of the said Thomas' title as tenant of the manor under Kirkby.
5 Cf. note, s. t. Inschip, Cockersand Chartulary, p. 184. A pedigree of the family will be found in the History of Craven, 3rd edit., p. 205, where it is stated that Ellen, wife of Sir Henry de Kighley, Knt., was the daughter of Sir Hugh Venables, Knt. This concord suggests relationship between the said Ellen, and Alice de Carleton, widow of Sir Richard le Boteler, Knt. See No. 78, p. 182.
6 This concord was made to establish a settlement of the Haydock estates by Gilbert de Haydock, upon Matthew, his son and heir.
7 William, son of William de Anderton, and Ameria his wife held Rumworth and Lostock for one-third of a knight's fee in 1282. (Mamcestre, p. 154). The said William held this fee of Robert Grelley in 1302, when he contributed to the Aid to marry the King's daughter. Probably Ameria was the daughter and heiress of Richard de Pierpont, who held this fee in 1242. (Testa ii., f. 791). This concord was made in order to confirm some previous feoffment of Lostock to Robert de Cunliffe.
8 Penketh was a late infeudation by the lords of Warrington to Roger de Sankey, who held it in 1242 for one-twentieth fee. It had formed part of the Demesne of Warrington. Richard, son of Gilbert de Penketh, was probably a near relation of Roger de Sankey.

10 Assizes were held at Lancaster during the fortnight, which commenced 8th June, 1292, before the following Justices in Eyre—Hugh de Cressingham, William de Ormsby, John Wigan, Mr. John Lovel and William de Mortimer. The proceedings of this Eyre are recorded upon the Assize Rolls, Nos. 408–416, containing in the whole 299 membranes, preserved in the Public Record Office.
11 In the year 1290, the Hospitallers of St. John of Jerusalem in England held estates, or had territorial rights in over one hundred hamlets and townships in Lancashire, acquired almost entirely in the twelfth century. It was, however, the habit of this institution, doubtless dictated by convenience, to promptly enfeoff others in the lands given to them at a fee-farm rent, the trifling amount of which proves the great antiquity of these infeudations. Little Woolston, in the parish of Childwall, had probably been given to the Hospitallers by one of the early Barons of Halton, but had been re-acquired by one of the donor's successors before the date of its bestowal upon the Abbey of Stanlaw by Roger, Constable of Chester. The object of this concord appears to have been the recognition of the Hospitallers as mesne tenants between the Earl of Lincoln and the Abbey, and doubtless, the acknowledgment of the fee farm rent due to them.
12 A concord to establish a settlement of a moiety of the Manor of Little Leaver by Elias de Leaver upon his son William.
13 Grimbald de Ellel had a grant of two carucates of land in Ellel from William de Lancaster II. (1170—1184), to hold by the service of one-twelfth knight. (Testa ii., f. 808). He was succeeded by his son Herbert (Cf. No. 46, temp. John, p. 26), who had issue Grimbald and Richard. Grimbald II. had issue Grimbald III. and Walter, sometimes called "de Sowerby," who, for ten marks, sold to Sir Richard le Boteler the custody of his eldest son Richard, with his marriage and inheritance in Ellel and Sowerby. (Dodsworth's MS. liii., f. 91). Grimbald III. had issue three daughters, who were his heirs, (1) Ameria or Alina, wife of Robert de Holland, son of Adam de Holland of Euxton, who died s.p.; (2) Juliana, wife of Roger de Sline; (3) Laderina, wife of William de Catherton.
The following extract is taken from the Register of St. Mary de Pratis:—"We (the Abbot and canons) have there (in Ellel) by the gift of Roger de Sclene, for ourselves and our tenants dwelling upon the following lands, to wit, upon the land of Elhale Chapel, and lands of Hesselrig and Elmesthweyt and Hallestude, common of pasture in the whole common pasture belonging to the town of Elhale for the tenants own cattle, with all liberties and easements; and acquittance of pannage for our tenants' pigs reared upon those lands; and sufficient husbote and heybote of dead or other suitable wood standing in Elhale wood. He also granted common of pasture throughout Elhale, as in charter xxj. We have the same grant and confirmation in all things from William de Catherton, as in charter xxv." (Bodleian Lib., Oxon., MS. Laud, H. 72, f. 46).

15 Roger de Samlesbury and Alexander de Harwood held one carucate of land in Harwood, near Bolton-le-Moors, of Robert Grelley in 1212, by military service, where six and a half carucates make one knight's fee (Testa, ii., f. 822). Roger de Samlesbury had issue Sir William, eldest son and heir (Cf. note to No. 161, temp. Henry III., p. 130), who had issue three daughters (1) Margery, married Robert de Hampton; (2) Cecily, married Sir John d'Ewyas; (3) Elizabeth, married Sir Robert de Holland. Perhaps Matilda, wife of William de Blackrod was dau. and heir of Robert and Margery de Hampton. William de Bradshagh held Blackrod in 1282, at a fee farm rent of 20s. (Mamcestre, p. 173).
16 At Lancaster Assizes, on the Octave of Holy Trinity, 20 Edward I. [8th June, 1292], Richard de Urmeston and Sitherilda his wife gave one mark for licence to concord with the Prioress of Wallandeswelles, in a plea respecting the advowson of the Church of Westelay, in Legh. They shall have a chirograph. They also acknowledged that they owe 30 marks to the aforesaid Prioress, and found pledges therefor to her, to wit, John de Byron, Henry de Kyghlee, Richard de Bradeshawe and Henry de Tyldeslee (Assize Roll, No. 408, m. 1 dorso).
It does not appear how the Nunnery of Wallingwells, in co. Notts, acquired an interest in the advowson of the Church of Leigh, but it was probably through the family of Norris of Haigh, of whom, I suppose, the Urmstons held this manor temp. Henry III. In the 24 Henry VI., the Priory of Erdbury, co. Warwick acquired the advowson of the rectory (Patent Roll, 23 Henry VI., Pt. 2, m. 21).
17 This concord records the settlement of a considerable estate brought to Henry de Trafford (Cf. No. 5, p. 153) in marriage, by his wife Lora. It does not appear who she was, but I would suggest that she was the heir of the estate in Clifton, held in 1212 by Robert de Clifton, probably one carucate (although the Testa gives it as four oxgangs) held by the yearly service of 8s. She also seems to have brought her husband one-third part of Edgworth, viz., two oxgangs, held of the Honour of Lancaster by the yearly service of 7s. 4d. Crompton, an estate apparently of one carucate, had probably been acquired by the marriage of Richard de Trafford, with an heiress of the Chetham family, as suggested in the note to No. 5, p. 154. Henry de Trafford, the tenant, only held one moiety of Crompton, which he herein settled upon his brother Richard, with remainder to a younger brother John, and reversion after the death of the survivor of them to himself and heirs. The other moiety had been given by Richard de Trafford, who died before 1278, to his son Geoffrey de Chadderton (Ibid). If the surmise that Richard de Trafford and his son Henry both married heiresses, is correct, it explains the sudden rise of this family from a comparatively unimportant position at the beginning of the thirteenth century, to the position of one of the first families in Lancashire at the end of that century.
18 "Adam de Prestwich holds ten oxgangs of land in Prestwich and Failsworth in chief of the King in thanage by 24s." yearly service. "Adam de Heaton holds of this Adam four oxgangs [in Great and Little Heaton] by 10s. Gilbert de Notton holds of this Adam two oxgangs in Failsworth by 4s." Prestwich, Great and Little Heaton were therefore assessed at one carucate, and the yearly thanage service was 20s. This is confirmed by the Birch Feodary. Thomas de Heaton was evidently the successor in title of Adam, who was living in 1212. (Testa, ii., fol. 826).
