Footnotes

1 Orm de Haydock possessed an estate in Ince and Haydock, in Makerfield, of three ploughlands. He occurs in the Pipe Rolls as early as 1169-70, when he appears to have been bailiff or steward of the royal demesne in Newton and its members. At the date of the Great Inquest of co. Lancaster taken at Midsummer, 1212, Orm had been succeeded by Alfred, his son and heir, who held Ince, and Haydock, which latter his younger sons, Hugh de Haydock and William de Haydock, apparently held of their elder brother Alfred. Alfred was the father or grandfather of Richard de Ince, who with Alesia, his wife, put in their claim to the moiety of the manor of Haydock in 1292. (See pt. i., p. 174). Hugh de Haydock was the father of Gilbert, who settled the moiety of this manor upon his son Matthew by Fine in 1292. The said Matthew had issue Sir Gilbert, his son and heir, the plaintiff in the above Fine (no. 38) and deforciant in the one previous to it, who settles the moiety of the manor upon his son Matthew, with remainders over to his other children. John, his second son, ultimately succeeded to the estates, and was a witness in the Scrope and Grosvenor trial in 1386, when he was sixty-four years of age. Perhaps Gilbert, whose claim is recorded in the Fine no. 37, was a bastard son of Sir Gilbert. The other moiety of the manor of Haydock, which was held by William de Haydock in 1212, was afterwards in the possession of the Hollands and Lovels, but by what means it descended in that line does not appear.
2 Here follow the names of sixty-five free tenants of Burtonwood and Warrington.
3 Here follow particulars of forty-five tenements granted for the term of one, two, or three lives, containing in the whole 51½ messuages, 243½ acres of arable land, 9 acres of meadow, and 114½ acres of wood in Burtonwood.
4 The said Katherine married about January, 1333, Sir Hamon, younger son of Sir Hamon Mascy, lord of Dunham Massey, and so ultimately conveyed the manor of Rixton and the moiety of the manor of Glazebrook to that family.

6 Lea and Old Lea Hall, adjoining the township of Clifton, is probably the township here meant. It is not possible now to distinguish the division between English Lea and French Lea, formerly two separate townships.
7 The history of the manor of Allithwaite in Cartmel is very obscure. It appears to have been granted to Ketell, son of Eldred, in the time of William Rufus, and to have descended to his great-grandson Thomas, son of Gospatric, son of Orm, who gave 5 acres of arable land in the town fields of "Hailinethait," and a toft, an acre of meadow and pasture sufficient for ten cows, to the monks of Furness, by charter attested by Norman de Redeman (of Levens), William de Boivill, Henry, brother of the said Thomas, Ralph, son of Orm, son of Thore, and Gilbert de Boivill. This would be between 1160 and 1180. Subsequently the Copeland family had lands here, for Richard de Coupland gave to Peter, his son, "all my land in Kertmell both in demesne and service, to wit in Neuton and in Alefthwayth," by performing forinsec service belonging to 6 oxgangs of land. Duchy of Lanc., Anct. Deeds, L. 559—61.
This charter passed between 1225 and 1245. In the last-mentioned year the said Peter gave to the canons of Cartmel "all my land of Kertmel both within the town of Neuton and without, and all my land which is called Flemingfeld," which latter he held of the Priory of Conishead. An agreement about these lands made between the prior of Cartmel and Sir Alan de Copeland, circa 1272–8, refers to the above-mentioned land of Flemingfeld as being in "Alyphtwait." But the estate which Peter de Copeland gave to Cartmel Priory was only an estate parcel of the manor of Allithwaite. The name, "Flemingfeld," however, suggests that the Fleming family had held the manor, and if so the tenure by Harrington in 1334 becomes apparent.
8 The above estates passed to Sir Richard de Hoghton, chivaler, through his marriage with Sibilla, sister and heir of Sir Henry de Lea, who was also lord of Mollington Banastre, co. Chester. She probably died before 1334, whereupon Sir Richard gave them to Sir Adam, his son and heir.
9 Cf. no. 36 supra. Agnes de Blackburn possessed the third part of this manor as one of the three daughters and coheirs of Sir Adam de Blackburn. By this fine she settled her third part of this manor upon her nephew, John de Arderne, son of Thomas de Arderne and Joan, her sister. See nos. 76, 80, and 97, post. Agnes had no issue by her second husband, Sir Robert de Hornecliffe.
10 Cf. Transactions of the Lanc. and Chesh. Antiq. Society, vol. xvii, p. 39.
11 Some account of the family of Middleton may be found in the Transactions of the Lanc. and Chesh. Antiq. Socy., vol. xvii, p. 32, et seq. To this may be added the following notes. Roger de Middleton, the last of the family of Middleton, married Agnes, daughter of Adam de Hulton, and died 16th August, 1322, leaving issue, Matilda, his eldest daughter, and four other surviving daughters. The said Agnes is the plaintiff in this Fine. She married, secondly, John de Barton, of Friton, in Rydale, who died before 1329, and, thirdly, John de New Malton, who probably died before 1335. Matilda, her daughter, married John, son of Robert de Ainsworth, to whom John, son of Henry de Stakehill, by deed dated on Friday after St. Barnabas, 16 Edward III. (14th June, 1342), granted all his lands and tenements in Stakehil (Stake Hill) in the town of Midleton, to hold to them and the heirs male of their bodies, in default to remain to Robert, son of Thomas de Barton and his heirs male, in default to remain to Richard, brother of the said Robert and his heirs male, in default to remain to Joan, daughter of the said John and Matilda (Towneley's MS., GG., no. 1755—Addit. MS., 32,107). They had issue, John de Ainsworth, to whom John de Ainsworth, the father, gave his manor of Middleton, by deed dated at Medowcroft, on Sunday, the feast of St. John the Baptist, 21 Edward III. (24th June, 1347). By another deed dated at Midleton, on 2nd May, 21 Edward III. (1347), Alice, daughter of Roger de Middleton, granted to John de Anysworth and Matilda, his wife, and the heirs male begotten between them, all her lands and tenements in the hamlets called Hindgrandchadir, Berdsill, Birkehill, Asheworth, and Anysworth, in the town of Midleton, which after the death of the said Roger, her father, and of Robert de Midleton, brother of the said Roger hereditarily belonged [to the said John and Matilda], in default of issue male of their bodies to remain to Robert, son of Thomas de Barton for the term of his life, and after his decease, to Richard, his brother, for life, and after his decease to John, brother of the said Richard and Robert, for life. With warranty (Ibid. no. 1,759). By another deed of the same date, the said Alice gave to John and Matilda, and their heirs male, all her lands and tenements in Linnall, called Hing and Hage, which formerly belonged to her said father, Roger de Middleton, and to Robert, his brother (Ibid. no. 1,927). In 1367 the manor of Middleton was committed to the custody of John, Duke of Lancaster, being in the King's hand, because John de Aynesworthe, who held the said manor by the law of England, after the death of Matilda, his wife, was outlawed for the death of Adam, son of Ellis Knowles. In 1368 the lands in Medowcroft, Birkhill, Assheworth, and Lynales, in the King's hands for the said outlawry, were committed to the custody of William de Barton (of Rydale). About the 7 Richard II., the last-mentioned lands were restored to John, son of John de Ainsworth, but the manor was never restored, and the King probably gave it, to William Barton, by whose heirs it was afterwards held. John de Ainsworth, the younger, married Ellen, who had lands in Mellor, in Glossop. They had issue, John and Alexander, and a daughter, Katherine, who married Robert Pilkington, of Rivington, in 1382. The bulk of the Ainsworth estates ultimately descended to the heirs of Robert and Katherine.
12 The author of a History of the Chapels of Didsbury and Chorlton has confused references to Chorlton-upon Medlock with those relating to Chorltoncum-Hardy. The former, originally of thanage tenure, was afterwards granted to the barons of Manchester, who held it as mediate lords of the lords of the Honour of Lancaster. The latter was a member of the manor of Withington and, as regards one moiety of the township, was granted out to the ancestor of Barlow before the reign of King John.
13 A deed expressing the same limitations as the above Fine is quoted in the History of the Chapels of Didsbury and Chorlton, p. 249.

15 Agnes de Blackburn, widow of Sir Robert de Hornecliffe, by this Fine settles her fourth part of the manor of Bolton-le-Moors upon herself for life, with remainder to the eldest and second sons successively of her half sister Katherine Banastre, wife of John de Harrington. The said two sons, Robert and Adam, appear to have died young, as Thomas Harrington, presumably the third son, who proved his age in 1359, succeeded his father.
