2 Margaret, daughter and heir of Sir John de Longvillers and wife of Geoffrey de Nevill, lord of Hornby, jure uxoris suæ, died in the 12 Edward II., 1319. By inquest taken at Hornby on 4th April, in that year, it was found that she died seised of the Castle and Honour of Hornby with the appurtenances, and that her grandson, John, son of John de Nevill, was her next heir, of the age of 18 years at the Feast of St. Andrew last past (30th November, 1318). John de Nevill died without issue 9 Edward III., 1335, and by inquest taken at Hornby, on Wednesday after the Purification of the B.V.M., 10 Edward III. (7th February, 1336), it was found that Robert de Nevill, his cousin, was his next heir. Returning to Margaret de Nevill, she had issue by Geoffrey de Nevill—(1) John, her eldest son, named above, who died during her lifetime; (2) Geoffrey, who is stated to have held one knight's fee in Hornby in the 4 Edward III., when Henry, Earl of Lancaster, caused a reasonable aid to be levied to make his eldest son a knight (Duchy of Lancaster, Knights' Fees 1–11, mm. 28 and 31); (3) Robert, who probably succeeded to the Castle and Honour of Hornby in 1336, as heir to his nephew, and had issue, Sir Robert de Nevill, chivaler, who was summoned to Parliament as a Baron, 25th February, 1342 [The Complete Peerage, vi, p. 14, says—"Nothing further is known of him."]; and (4) Sir Edmund de Nevill, chivaler, who was knight of the shire for Lancaster, 12 Edward II., received pardon for participation in the death of Peter de Gavaston, and the same year was commissioner of array and leader of the levies for co. Lancaster; was again knight of the shire, 15 Edward II., and was summoned to the Great Council at Westminster, 17 Edward II. and 1 Edward III. He died 11th December, 31 Edward III., 1357. He occurs in the Extent of the county made in 1322, as holding with Richard de Rigmayden the moiety and the 4th part [rectius two-thirds] of the town of Middleton, near Lancaster, by the yearly service of 26s. 8d. He married Isolda, dau. and heir of Robert de Flamborough, of Leversedge, co. York, by whom he had issue— (1) William, his son and heir, named in this Fine, who married Alina, dau. of * * * de Harrington, and was ancestor of a long line of Nevills of Nevill Hall, in Ulverston, and of Leversedge, co. York. (See Foster's Visitation of Yorks., p. 246); (2) John; (3) Isabel, who married Robert de Prestcote, father of Edmund, named in this Fine; and (4) Alice, who married William del Lee, and was the father of Edmund and Henry also mentioned.
Touching the tenements in Ulverston, it appears that Lawrence de Cornwall, son of John and Joan, who are parties to a Fine levied 2 Edward II. (page 2), granted the mill of Ulverston and many messuages and tenements there to Edmund de Nevill and Alina his wife. In the 21 Edward III., there was a suit touching this gift, which is fully recorded in the Coucher of Furness (pp. 352–361). The land in Middleton was one carucate which had probably been alienated by Orm de Kellet and Eufemia his wife to Sir Edmund de Nevill, in the time of Edward II. A long pedigree of the families of Longvillers and Nevill of Hornby is given in Harrison's History of the Wap. of Gilling West, p. 444.

5 Hugh le Norreys, also called Hugh de Haigh, occurs in the Pipe Rolls in the 6 Richard I., when he paid a fine for pardon because he had taken part in the rebellion of Count John of Mortain in the spring of 1194. He had a grant about this time from William, son of Yvo, at the request of Sigerith, wife of the said William, of the estate of Eltonhead in Sutton, containing four oxgangs of land. The charter may be seen in the Cockersand Chartulary, p. 597, in notis. Hugh afterwards enfeoffed William le Norreys (who was probably a younger son) in this estate, who afterwards took the name of Eltonhead, and was the ancestor of a family who held this estate until the end of the seventeenth century. Henry de Eltonhead paid 4s. 8d. to the subsidy levied in 1332, and Alan his son put in his claim upon the levying of this Fine. It is natural to suppose that he did so as a representative in the male line of Norreys of Haigh. The interest of the Atherton family is traceable to the Fine levied in 1298, when William de Bradshagh and Mabel his wife, in consideration of the sum of 200li sterling, released their right in the manor to William de Atherton. It would be interesting to know whether this release betokened a sale, mortgage, or the delivery of the manor to William in right of his wife. There is, however, no evidence to show that Mabel le Norreys was not sole heir of her father, Hugh le Norreys. However that may be, Henry, son of William de Atherton, in 1337, recorded his claim to the manor on this Fine.
6 She was probably daughter and coheir of John, son of Hugh, son of John de Twiselton. See Whitaker's History of Whalley, edit. 1876, ii, p. 154.
7 Peter de Ashton held Ashton in Makerfield temp. Henry II., Richard I., and John. He contributed 2 marks to the tallage levied in 1202. Thomas, his son, held at the date of the Great Inquest of co. Lane., 3½ ploughlands in Ashton in thanage for 35s., and half a ploughland in Alston in Amounderness for 4s. He was one of the knights who made the perambulation of the forest in 12 Henry III., 1228. Sir Peter de Burnhull, son and heir of Thomas took the order of knighthood in accordance with the King's command in 41 Henry III., 1256, having fifteen librates of land and upwards. He occurs from 1240 to his death shortly before 1292. Alan, his son, was under age in 1292, and in ward to Sir Gilbert de Clifton. In 1300, he recovered the manor of Skelmersdale against Robert de Lathom. (See Fine no. 95, pt. i, p. 189). He held tenements in Anderton and the town of Burnhull (Brindle) of the barony of Manchester in 1320, but died before 18 Edward II., 1322, when Peter de Burnull, probably his son, was returned in the Extent made that year as holding the manor of Melling, in West Derby Hundred, by the service of 10s. Joan, daughter and heir of Peter de Burnhull, married about the 9 Edward III., 1335, William Gerard of Kingsley, co. Chester, son and heir of William Gerard of Kingsley and Catenhall, by which union this noble family became possessed of large estates in co. Lancaster, being subsequently seated at Bryn, in Ashtonin-Makerfield.
8 Seventh in descent from Waldeve de Walton, who had a grant of lands in Walton, Wavertree, and Newsham from William, Count of Boulogne and Earl of Warren (1153–1160), to hold by executing the office of Master Serjeant of the Wapentake of West Derby.

11 Ashton, near Lancaster, was a member of the Lancashire fief of the barons of Kendal, and, after the death of Sir William de Lancaster in 1246, fell to the share of Helwise, one of his sisters and coheirs. Upon the death of her son, Peter de Brus, about the year 1272, without issue, Ashton fell to the share of Laderina, the youngest of his four sisters and coheirs, who was the wife of John de Bellew. In accordance with a writ of diem clausit extremum after the death of the said John, tested at Peebles, 18th August, 1301, an inquest was taken at Ashton, near Lancaster, by which the manor of Ashton was extended at 8li. 6s. 7d. By a further inquest taken at Appleby, on Thursday after St. Luke, 29 Edward I. (19th Oct. 1301), the jury found that Nicholas, son of Miles de Stapelton, by Sibil [formerly his wife], daughter of the said John and Ladrayne, is the next heir of the said John of the moiety of his lands, and that he is of the age of 15 years; that Joan, wife of Aucher Fitz Henry, daughter of the said John and Ladrayne, aged 24 years, is the next heir of the other moiety (Inquisitions, 29 Edward I., no. 57). The said Nicholas de Stapleton is the deforciant in the above Fine. Miles, his son and heir, had issue, Thomas, who died without issue on 10th August, 1373, when Elizabeth, wife of Thomas de Metham, chivaler, was found by inquest taken at Lancaster, on Wednesday after Holy Trinity, 1374, to be sister and heir of the said Thomas. Edmund Lawrence, named in this Fine, was still holding the manor at that time for the term of his life by the demise of Sir Nicholas de Stapleton, knight, made before 1339. Sir Alexander Metham, chivaler, son of Thomas and Elizabeth, died seised of Ashton on Tuesday in Whitweek, 4 Henry V., 1416, and on January 15th following, Thomas, his son, then aged 15 years and more, was found by inquest taken at Lancaster to be his next heir. (Palat. of Lanc., Chancery Inquisitions, 4 Henry V., no. I.) The manor continued in the possession of the Laurence family as tenants of the Methams until sometime in the fifteenth century, when the latter ceased to be the mediate lords, for James Laurence at his death in 1490, held the manor of the King, as of the Duehy of Lancaster, sine medio.

13 The premises were clearly the inheritance of Agnes, and were herein settled upon her son and his issue, but her parentage does not appear to be ascertainable.
14 Walton was one of the three Domesday manors in Cartmel. In 2. Edward II., there is mention of Henry de Walton and Christiana, his wife, who held lands in Ulverston. Robert de Walton and John de Walton contributed to the subsidy levied in 1332 from the township of Holker. Alexander de Walton was a juror in an inquest taken at Ulverston in 1367, and Alexander de Walton was Abbot of Furness from 1347 to 1367.
15 Among the names of the tenants of the manor of Wyresdale who held under William de Coucy at the time of his death in 1347, are "Thomas Gentil," who held of the said manor two oxgangs of land in Wymmerle by knight's service. (Inquisitions, 20 Edward III., pt. ii., no. 63). There are some grounds for the belief that Robert de Pleasington and Thomas le Gentil had acquired the estates of the Winmarleigh family, probably by marriage, and that this and the following Fine ratified a division of the estate.
16 These premises are described in the preceding Fine as in the moiety of the manor of Winmarleigh.
17 By charter dated at Sorham, June 18th, 1199, King John confirmed to Adam, son of Orm de Kellet, the serjeanty of the "Wapentac" of Lonesdale, with three ploughlands in Kellet pertaining to that serjeanty, to hold to him and his heirs, as the King had confirmed the same whilst he was Count of Mortain. (Charter Roll, p. xl.). Adam had issue Orm, who found surety for his relief upon succeeding to his father's office July 16th, 1222. Orm was the father of Adam de Kellet, who gave 10 marks on January 4th, 1229, to have livery of the lands and serjeanty of Orm, his father. On April 24th, 1228, Henry III. addressed letters patent to Orm de Kellet, as follows:—"We command you to be attentive and answerable to the abbot of Furness and his bailiffs touching the office of serjeanty within Furness, as you have been attentive and answerable to us and our bailiffs of co. Lancaster before we granted to the same abbot the homage and service of Michael le Fleming, who holds of us within Furness," etc. (Patent Roll, 12 Henry III., m. *). He was the father of Adam, who by the style of "Adam filius Adæ filii Orm de Kellet," gave for the souls of his father and mother, Matilda, to the monks of Furness, licence to get mill-stones in his part of Kellet. (Furness Coucher, vol. ii, Addit. MSS. 33,244, fol. 44). He was succeeded by Orm de Kellet, who as "Orm filius et hæres Adæ de Kellet," gave to the monks of Furness all the moss and turbary in the territory of Over Kellet which he had of the gift of Thomas de Coupmanwra, which charter was witnessed by Adam, his brother. (Ibid., fol. 45b.) By another charter he gave the monks free passage through all his lands for themselves, their conversi, men and cattle, and "Baytyng," except in his corn and meadow land. (Ibid., fol. 46b.) He married Eufemia, who brought one ploughland in Middleton in Lonsdale to her husband. (Lanc. Fines, pt. i., p. 174). In Trinity term, 1292, he was summoned to show by what warrant he claimed to be the King's bailiff in the wapentake of Lonsdale, and to make and execute summonses, attachments, distresses, and all other things pertaining to the office of the lord King's bailiff in the said wapentake. He came and proffered the charters of John, when Count of Mortain, and also when King, confirming the said serjeanty to his ancestor with three ploughlands in Kellet appurtenant thereto, and further stated that from the time of King William the Conqueror all his ancestors from heir to heir had been seised of the said bailiwick together with certain tenements as of fee and right. Judgment is not recorded. (Placita de quo ware., page 384). In 1299, Orm alienated his manor of Nether Kellet to Thomas Banastre of Broughton. (Lanc. Fines, pt. i., p. 186). Shortly afterwards it passed into the possession of Sir Robert de Holand, who had a charter of free warren here in 1307. In the 17 Edward II., 1323, the manor of Nether Kellet and a yearly rent of 9s. 4d., of which 3s. 4d. was a service called "Cowemale," was in the King's hands by the forfeiture of Robert de Holand (Rentals and Surveys, no. 379, m. 4), but it was soon after restored to his son, the Sir Robert of the above Fine. The statement in the pedigrees of the Holland family that this manor came to that family by the marriage of the daughter and heir of Adam de Kellet to Thurstan de Holand, is altogether improbable and inconsistent with the known facts.
18 In the latter part of the twelfth century Bernard de Parbold was lord of the manor of Parbold. There are grounds for the belief that he was a younger son of Henry, son of Siward, lord of Lathom. Bernard had issue Henry, who was lord of Parbold temp. Kings John and Henry III. The said Henry, and Roger, son of Henry, who was probably his first cousin and also held lands here, presented to the church of Flixton between 1198 and 1208 (Duchy of Lanc., Anct. Deeds, L. 616). Henry de Parbold was a benefactor to Burscough Priory, but appears to have died without issue, when the manor reverted to the lord of Lathom. Sir Robert de Lathom, knight, who died before 1286, probably gave the manor to his younger son Richard, who married Dionisia, daughter and co-heir of Sir Hamon de Mascy of Dunham, co. Chester. By deed without date, but of the time of Edward I., Richard, son of Robert de Lathum, gave to Alexander de Lathum and his heirs, for his homage and service, lands in Parbold bounded, which Richard son of Cherburn (? Thorburn) gave to Richard, son of Simon, with Avice his daughter in marriage, and an acre which Richard, son of [? Robert] the Taylor formerly held, and 1½ acre which Roger Banastre held, and 6½ acres which Nicholas de Holle formerly held, and 2½ acres near four acres lying towards the house of Bimme of the Lighthurst, and 6 acres which Henry de Lathum, the grantor's brother, formerly held of him; rendering yearly 9s. at the Nativity of the B.V.M. Witnesses— Sir Robert de Lathum, Sir Robert de Holand, knights, John le Waleys, Richard de Bradshagh and others. (Kuerden's MS., Coll. of Arms, III, W. 26 b). By his said wife Richard de Lathum, of Parbold, had issue four daughters, viz. (1) Alice, who married Richard de Urmston; (2) Lucy, the wife of Thomas Lestrange of Knokyn; (3) Katherine, wife of Thomas de Hackford; and (4) Cecily, the wife of Richard de Bradshagh of Pennington parish of Leigh. Lucy, who with her husband is plaintiff in this Fine, and Katherine died without issue. Dr. Kuerden noted a charter by which "Lucy, who was the wife of John de Warburton gave to John Moun, chaplain, her manor of Parbold, together with wardships, reliefs, &c., to hold of the chief lords of the fee." No date is recorded in the abstract (Kuerden's MS. Chetham Library, folio vol., p. 140). Subsequently the manor reverted to Sir Thomas de Lathum, knight, who gave it to his younger son, Edward, from whom descended the line of Lathom of Parbold. At the Assizes held at Lancaster in Whitweek, 1352, the heirs of Alice and Cecily Mascy sued Edward, son of Sir Thomas de Lathum, knight, for the manor of Parbold (Duchy of Lanc., Assize Roll no. 2, pt. i, m. viij). No judgment upon the plea has been found.
19 At the death of Lady Margaret de Nevill, in the 12 Edward II, Gilbert de Wenington held the manor of Wenington as of the Honour of Hornby.
