Footnotes

1 Feet of Fines, Lancaster, File 29, 1 to 4 Henry, Duke of Lancaster. Henry Plantagenet, son and heir of Henry Plantagenet, late Earl of Lancaster, was created Duke of Lancaster on 6th March, 1351, with Palatinate jurisdiction for life within the county of Lancaster.
2 This Fine requires some notice. Joan, dau. and heir of Adam de Pennington, married Roger, son of Richard Bradshagh, before the 30 Edward I, 1302. The parentage of Richard de Bradshagh is unknown, but he is frequently associated with John de Bradshagh and Adam his brother, who were sons of Roger de Bradshagh of Westleigh, in deeds without date of the time of Edward I. The elder Roger was probably a younger son of one of the Bradshaghs of Bradshagh, but, as in the case of Sir John de Bradshagh, who stands at the head of the pedigree of Bradshagh of Haigh, the connecting link has not been ascertained. Richard de Bradshagh, the first of Pennington, son and heir of Roger and Joan de Pennington, married first, Cecily, one of the daughters and coheirs of Richard de Lathom, of Parbold (Cf. note p. 120), by whom he had issue Thomas, a minor in 1351–2 when he was engaged in prosecuting his claim to the manor of Parbold (Duchy of Lane., Assize Rolls, nos. 1 and 3). He probably died without issue. The said Richard married secondly, Christiana, by whom he had issue (1) Richard, who died before 1351, leaving a daughter Alesia, upon whom the moiety of the manor is here settled; and (2) Roger to whom the reversion of the manor was given in default of heirs of the body of the said Alesia. According to the pedigree of Mascy of Tatton, Sir Richard le Mascy of Tatton, knight, married Alice, dau. of Gilbert de Haydock, and died 3rd September, 1370, without issue. (Ormerod's Hist. of Cheshire, edit. 1882, i, p. 441.) This however is a mistake, for he had issue a daughter Elizabeth, who, describing herself as "Elizabeth le Mascy, daughter of Richard le Mascy, knight," in her pure widowhood gave to feoffees "my manor of Pinington," by charter dated on the feast of the Invention of the Holy Cross, 4 Henry IV. (3rd May, 1403). She afterwards married Richard de Werburton of Burghes, in Coggeshull, who was sheriff of Cheshire, 1424–7, by whom she had issue an only daughter Petronilla, who married William le Mascy, son of Hamon le Mascy of Rixton. The said William and Petronilla had seisin of lands and tenements in Pennington from the feoffees of Elizabeth, mother of the said Petronilla, on Monday, after St. Hilary, 6 Henry V. (16th January, 1419), when the said Elizabeth and Richard de Werburton her husband, also received seisin of the manor of Pennington from the same feoffees. (Harl. MS., 2112, p. 106b old, 145b new). The marriage of Richard le Mascy to Alice de Haydock, which is referred to above, may be correct, but there can be little doubt that the said Richard also married Alice, daughter and heir of Richard, son of Richard de Bradshagh of Pennington, by which means the manor of Pennington passed into the families first of Mascy of Tatton, and afterwards as here described, of Mascy of Rixton.
3 The families of Prestwich and Pendlebury have been noticed in Lanc. Fines, pt. i., pp. 188 and 196 in notis. Other Fines relating to their estates have occurred in this volume (pp. 12 and 16). There are many difficulties in tracing he descent of these estates, but the following account is believed to be correct. Roger de Pendlebury, lord of Pendlebury, and Wickleswick in Barton, had issue two sons, Elias and William. Elias had two daughters, Matilda, who was married to Adam, son of Alexander de Pilkington, and Beatrice. Both died without issue, Beatrice having released her interest in the manor of Pendlebury to Adam de Prestwich by Fine in 1300 (pt. i., p. 188, no. 93). Probably William de Pendlebury had already enfeoffed Adam de Prestwich of this manor, as he did of the manor of Wickleswick (Trafford Charters, no. 290). In 1301, Henry de Trafford, as feoffee, settled upon Adam de Prestwich for life a messuage in Barton (which appears to be the manor of Wickleswick), with remainder to Adam's son Henry, by his wife Agnes de Trafford, and other remainders over to Henry's four sisters (pt. i., p. 196, no. 112). But the manor of Pendlebury descended otherwise, for in 1311, Adam de Prestwich settled the manor upon Alice, daughter of Richard de Pontefract, for life, with remainder to Robert her son, and other remainders over to Robert's sisters, Alice and Agnes (p. 12 supra). Two years later (1313) the manors of Prestwich, Alkrington and Pendlebury, and the advowson of the church of Prestwich, were settled by Fine upon Adam de Prestwich for life, with remainder to Alice de Wolveley for life, after her death to remain to Thomas, son of the said Alice, with other remainders over, as in the previous Fine (p. 16 supra). Further it is recorded in the Lichfield Episcopal Registers that in the year 1330, and again in 1334, Thomas, "son of Adam de Prestwich," presented to the rectory of Prestwich. An explanation of these puzzling settlements has been offered by Mr. W. H. B. Bird in no. 4 of the Ancestor (p. 217) which undoubtedly gives the correct solution of the difficulty. He sets out a pedigree showing that Adam de Prestwich, who married Agnes de Trafford circa 1290–5, had, by a previous wife, a son and heir Adam, who married Alice, daughter of Richard de Pontefract, by whom he had issue Thomas, his son and heir, named in the Fine of 1313, Robert, Alice and, Agnes. This Adam, the younger, died before 1313, possibly in 1311, Alice his widow afterwards marrying Thomas de Wolveley. The subsequent descents are as shown in Lanc. Inq. p.m., Chetham Soc., xcv, p. 53. The pedigree suggested by the editor in pt. i. of Lanc. Fines, p. 196, in notis, is manifestly erroneous. The claim recorded in the above Fine by Richard de Radcliffe and his father was based upon a feoffment made 7 Edward III., 1333, by Thomas de Prestwich (calling himself Thomas de Wolveley, the younger), of the manor of Prestwich, except certain lands parcel thereof, with the advowson of the church, to William, son of Richard de Radcliffe and his heirs.
4 No apology is necessary for the insertion of a corrected descent of the manor of Cuerdale, all the printed pedigrees of the family of the same name, who were lords thereof, being very incorrect. Alexander de Keuerdale was the first lord of Keuerdale on record, who, with his brothers John and Richard, attested the grant of Balderston by Ailsey, son of Hugh, to William, his son, before 1223. He was the father of Gilbert de Keuerdale, whose son and heir Alexander occurs from circa 1250 to circa 1300. Alexander, son and heir of Alexander, occurs until the 16 Edw. II, 1323, when Maria, his relict, releases her right to lands in Balderston, which she held in the name of dower. He had issue Robert, who probably died s.p., and Geoffrey, who held one moiety of "Ourederwent" at the death of the Earl of Lincoln in 1311 by knight's service in right of his wife, but died in his father's lifetime, for in the 7 Edward II. 1314, John de Langton, knight, granted to Alice, who was the wife of Geoffrey de Keuerdale, the custody of the lands which were formerly the said Geoffrey's in Little Derwent, and the marriage of John, son and heir of the said Geoffrey. Geoffrey and Alice had issue, besides the said John, a daughter Joan, who is named in the Fine no. 17 following, under which a life interest in the moiety of the manor of Ribbleton was limited to her, who released in the 1 Richard II., 1377–8, all her right in Keuerdale and in the moiety of the manor of Over Derwent to Thomas Molyneux and Joan his wife. Her brother, John de Keuerdale, was styled "lord of Keuerdale" in the 7, 10, and 16 Edward III. He gave lands in Walton-in-le-Dale and Keuerdale to the monks of Whalley to find a priest to celebrate masses for his soul for ever (Whalley Coucher, p. 1141; Hist. of Whalley, edit. 1876, II., p. 335). He died on Saturday, 15th October, 1345, and was buried in the new Conventual Church on the Thursday following. On Thursday, 12th April, 1346, by a mischance the manor house of Keuerdale was wholly burnt down (ibid.). He left issue Alice and Joan, his daughters and coheirs, who held Keuerdale of Lady Isabella, Queen of England, as appears by inquest taken at the Chapel of the Lawe on Wednesday after St. James the Apostle, 20 Edward III., 1346, on a writ of ad quod damnum to inquire touching lands to be alienated in mortmain to the Abbot of Whalley (Inquisitions, 20 Edward III., 2nd nos., 62). Alice married William Laurence, who died in or before 1355, having had issue a son, Edmund, who released his right in the manor of Keuerdale, the moiety of the manor of Ouerderwent, and in lands in the towns of Walton, Livesay, Preston and Hethchernock, which were formerly the inheritance of John de Keuerdale, to Thomas Molyneux and Joan, his wife, by deed dated 2 Richard II. (Keuerdale deed, no. 48). William, son of John de Merclesden of Colne, made a similar release in Lent, 1 Richard II., 1378; sealed with a seal bearing three lozenges in bend. In the year 1355, Alice gave the manor of Keuerdale and other lands to her sister Joan and her husband, Thomas Molyneux, son of Richard Molyneux of Sefton. These notes are mostly derived from the Osbaldeston deeds (Dodsworth's MS., cxlix.). The following is a copy of the will of Thomas Molyneux, as preserved in Kuerden's MS. in the College of Arms (vol. ii., fol. 256b), "I Thos. Molinex says my Wil is that my frends bein feoffed in al my lond etc. that my lond be given to Jenet my wife for life, remainder to Thomelyn the Molinex, Richard son my brother and his heirs male, remainder to Thos. Gefra son of Osbaldeston and his heirs male, remainder to John his brother and his heirs male, remainder to Richard his brother and his heirs male, remainder to my right heirs. I will that a place cald North-broc be given after the death of my wife to Raulin the Molinex and the heirs of his body male, remainder to Raulin, Richord son of Longworth and to his iongre brother after him and their heirs male remainder to my right heirs. That a place cald Harwood by [after] my wyf death be given to Jo: Jefray son of Osbaldeston and his heirs male, and to Richard his brother and his heirs male, remainder to Raulin the Molinex and to Will: Longworth sons in the same manner. I will that Jo: Benet son be fefeit [enfeoffed] in the land be woods (sic) and the land caled Thalwons in Derwent to him for life and that Paulin [Jankin?] Heari son le Molinex have a rent charge of 10li. [40s.] out of my lands in Ines, Thornton, and Crosby for his life after the death of my wif, and that Dicones lond Eli son of Ines be given to Janekyn Dykon son and to the heirs of his body goten, remainder to his brother H[enry] and the heirs of his body gotten, remainder to his yonger brother Wilkin [William] and the heirs of his body goten, remainder to Thomas right heirs the Molinex." Probably the original Will was in French. The date would be before 1387, as Thomas Molyneux is said to have been slain at Radcot Bridge, when Robert de Vere, the favourite of Richard II., was defeated there by the Duke of Gloucester. Thomas and Joan had issue Thomas, son and heir who died without issue in 1387 (Cf. Inquisition, Chetham Soc., xcv., p. 28), and Katherine, then aged forty, who was thrice married, and survived until the reign of Henry V. The estates of the Keuerdale family descended through her first marriage to the house of Osbaldeston. Numerous deeds relating to these estates are preserved in Kuerden's MS., Coll. of Arms, iv., K. 9 et seq.
5 The early history of the manor of Huyton is somewhat obscure. The Lathoms were the superior lords, and under them the Knowsleys or Huytons were the holders of the manor. Robert, son of Henry, founder of Burscough Priory, took to his second wife one Amabel, daughter of Simon, known as the Canon of Burscough. Upon Robert's death, in or before 1199, Amabel had her dower assigned to her in Knowsley (Cf. Lanc. Fines, pt. i., p. 8). The issue of this marriage was three brothers, Richard, Adam and William, who all three attested a charter of William de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, to Stanlaw Abbey, c. 1240 (Whalley Coucher, p. 520). Richard, the elder brother, gave Wolfall mill pool to Burscough, and farmed the mill under the Priory; which his brother Adam afterwards held under a demise for thirty years from 1245 (Reg. of Burscough, f. 44). Richard de Huton or Huyton and Adam, his brother, attested a Garston charter about this time (Whalley Coucher, p. 581). Richard probably died s.p., for the manor passed through Adam's issue. By Godith his wife (Cf. pt. i., p. 114) he had issue Henry and Richard, called "de Huyton." Henry appears to have had a son William, who occurs temp. Edward I. Thurstan de Huyton (probably another son of Adam and Godith) held lands in Winstanley in 1326 (Subsidy Roll. Cf. pt. i., p. 114). Robert, who was probably son and heir of Thurstan, held this land in 1332, and was also lord of Huyton. He died before 23 Edward III., leaving issue Katherine, his daughter and heir, afterwards in ward to Katherine, relict of Sir Robert de Lathum, and Margery his widow, who had her third part of the manor in dower. William de Huyton, kinsman and heir of Robert, succeeded. By his first wife Almarica he had issue Avice, his daughter and heir, who married William de Stoklegh (of Knowsley ?), plaintiff in this Fine; by his second wife Emma he had Robert, his son and heir, who died s.p. The heir of the said Robert was his kinswoman, one Margery, daughter of Henry and wife of John Bullyng or Billinge. She was said to have been abducted by John, son of Alan le Norreys of Speke, and by him detained until she alienated the manor of Huyton to him. The abduction may have been a fiction, but the alienation, at any rate as regards two-thirds of the manor, was a reality, for Norreys subsequently alienated that estate to Henry de Walton, Archdeacon of Richmond (Cf. no. 23 post). The Walton family subsequently acquired the other third part from Avice de Bretargh (no. 56 post), in whom we appear to recognize Avice, daughter of Robert de Huyton, and previously wife of William de Stoklegh. There are numerous references to suits touching the manor of Huyton at this time in the Duchy Assize Rolls (nos. 1 to 3) and in the De Banco Rolls.
6 Richard, son of Henry, lord of Torbock, a younger brother of Robert, son of Henry, the founder of Burscough Priory, gave a ridding called Old Torbock to Cockersand Abbey. He also gave land in Childwall called Rudgate for the maintenance of lepers who should be received there. Richard de Torbock, son of the said Richard, held the mill of Torbock under the Prior of Burscough (Reg. of Burscough). He was the father of Henry de Torbock, who held the fourth part of Dalton. At Lancaster Assizes in 1246, William de Bradshagh obtained a verdict against Henry de Torbock and another in a suit touching the third part of the mill of Turton (Assize Roll, no. 404, m. 2). In another suit he is called Henry de Torbock, the elder. As Sir Henry de Torbock he attests several important charters to Stanlaw Abbey in 1246, 1251 and 1262 (Coucher of Whalley, pp. 547, 499, 77 and 32). After his death the manor of Torbock appears to have reverted to the superior lord, viz., Sir Robert de Lathum, who granted it to his younger son Henry. There are, however, good grounds for supposing that Sir Henry de Torbock was grandfather of Elena, the wife of Henry de Lathum, and that the manors of Torbock and Welsh-Whittle and the fourth part of the manor of Dalton were her inheritance. At the Assizes held at Lancaster in Trinity Term, 20 Edward I., 1292, "Robert de Lathum conceded for himself and all his people (pro omnibus suis) that henceforth they will not meddle with any esplees (or profits) issuing out of the town of Turbok nor with any thing to be collected or taken from the tenants or tenements of Henry de Turbuk whereby Elena, wife of the said Henry might be unable to freely take other esplees to the use of the same Henry and her own, saving always to the same Robert ten pounds yearly and other reasonable services which the said Henry owes to him therefor" (Assize Roll, no. 408, m. 96b). Kuerden has preserved an abstract of a deed wherein "Robert, lord of Lathum, gave to Henry my son and his heirs for his homage, the whole town of Quithul and Wodacre and the appurtenances both in homages, services, rents, reliefs, wardships and escheats" (Folio MS. in Chetham Lib., p. 140). During the Shrievalty of Sir Robert de Lathum (probably between Easter, 1249, and Michaelmas, 1254), Robert, son of Jordan de Sonky, gave to Henry de Turbock the manor of Walsh Quithul and the underwood of Fulwood, together with the homage of John son of Felicia, the homage of Thomas de Perpont and the homage of Robert de Heskin (Kuerden's MS., Coll. of Arms, vol. iii., W, 26b). Many years later Robert, son of Roger de Sonky, released to Elena de Turbock all the right which he had in Walsh Quithul, together with all homages and reliefs (Ibid.). In the year 1283 the Bishop of Coventry and Lichfield exemplified the charter of Henry de Turbock and Elena his wife confirming to Burscough Priory the land of Rudgate, which they had by the gift of Richard, son of Henry, formerly lord of Torbock, "our ancestor" (Reg. of Burscough, f. 45b). Henry de Torbock died before 1302. The lady Elena long survived her husband, and was living in 1332. She was usually styled "Elena, formerly the wife of Henry de Lathum." Richard de Torbock, or de Lathum, son and heir of Henry and Elena, was suing John de Werberton for the manor of Parbold in Mich. Term, 6 Edward III. (De Banco Roll, no. 292, m. 53). The said Sir Richard de Torbock, chivaler, had issue by his wife Margaret three daughters—Emma, Elena and Alice, who were unmarried in 1342 (Assize Roll, no. 1424, mm. 8d and 9). Emma subsequently married Sir William Careless, knight, who is joined with her in the above Fine as plaintiff. Ultimately these estates descended to Henry de Torbock, who was found in 1365 to be son and heir of Sir Richard de Torbock by Matilda, another wife, supposed to have been a Standish (Vide Genealogist, N.S., vol. xvii., p. 206).

8 The Extent of 1322 states that Lawrence Travers and William Laurence hold the moiety of the manor of Assheton in right of their wives by the service of 5s.; and that Roger de Ethelston holds the town of Ribbleton by the yearly service of 8s. and suit to the County Court of Lancaster and Wapentake Court of Amounderness. From this it appears that William Laurence, the plaintiff in this Fine, was son and heir of William Laurence by his wife, a daughter and co-heir of Roger (?) de Ethelston.
9 This and the following Fine, together with no. 90 of the 12 Edward III. (p. 108, supra), relate to the estates of the two important families of Burnhull and Windhull, which, after becoming united in the family of Burnhull by the marriage of Avice, daughter and heiress of Alan de Windhull, to Peter de Burnhull, about the end of the reign of Edward I., subsequently passed to the family of Gerard by marriage with the heiress of Burnhull. Sir Peter de Burnhull and Avice his wife had issue Peter, who died s.p. before the 7 Edward II., and Alan de Burnhull, who by charter dated at Wyndhull on the eve of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, 8 Edward II., 1315, confirmed to Ralph Banastre the grant of land in Rainhill which Sir Peter de Burnhull, father of the said Alan, made to the said Ralph (Dodsworth's MS., cxlii, fol. 228). Alan was the father of Peter de Burnhull, who married Katherine, daughter of Richard de Hoghton of Hoghton (who afterwards married Hugh de Venables of Kinderton), but died without issue before the 4 Edward III., and two daughters:—Joan, who married William, son of William Gerard (see note, p. 109), and Agnes, who married David de Egerton, a younger brother of Philip de Egerton of Egerton, who died without issue before August, 1383, when his wife's pourparty of the estates of Peter de Burnhull, her brother, devolved upon Thomas Gerard, grandson of William Gerard and Joan de Burnhull, elder sister of the said Agnes (Cf. Fine of 7 Regality, post). At the date of this Fine (A.D. 1354), the manor of Windle and a moiety of the manor of Rainhill were held in coparcenary by Joan and Agnes and their respective husbands, except the third part held by Katherine and Hugh de Venables of the dower of the said Katherine. Mention is made of these estates in the latter part of the note to Fine no. 154 (part i, p. 126).

15 Orm, son of Ailward, the lineal ancestor of the Kirkbys of KirkbyIrleth, was enfeoffed of one knight's fee in Dalton, Parbold and Wrightington by Albert Grelley, baron of Manchester, in the time of King Stephen (Lancashire Pipe Rolls, p. 405). Before 1242 the Lathoms had become the superior lords of this fee, for we learn from the inquest taken respecting the Scutage of Gascony that Robert de Lathom held the fourth part of a knight's fee in Parbold, and three parts of a knight's fee in [Dalton and] Wrightington (Testa de Nevill, p.. 397b). In the inquest taken after the death of Robert Grelley in April, 1282, it was found that Robert de Lathum, Adam de Hoghton, William le Boteler, Ralph de Catterall and Geoffrey de Wrightington held Parbold, Dalton and Wrightington for one fee. Of these five persons, Robert de Lathum represented the superior lord of all three manors; Adam de Hoghton (who had purchased the estate of Henry de Athlakeston, or Ellaston) and Ralph de Catterall represented the heirs of Robert, son of Bernard de Goosnargh, who probably held a moiety of the manor of Wrightington in the time of Richard I.; Geoffrey de Wrightington represented a younger branch of Ashton of Ashton-under-Lyne, who probably held one-fourth of the manor (Cf. Fine no. 26, pt. i., p. 18. In the note to this Fine two statements require correction (1) The three defendants of the Fine were not heirs of Orm, son of Ailward, but tenants of the manor under Orm's heirs, viz., under Kirkby of KirkbyIrleth; (2) Henry, son of Bernard, was not a brother of Robert, son of Bernard, nor any relation, but his father Bernard was a brother of Robert, son of Henry de Lathum, founder of Burscough Priory). It is not known how William le Boteler of Warrington acquired an interest in the manor. Possibly he was custodian of the lands of one of the Kirkbys of that time. According to the extent of the barony of Manchester made in 1322, Robert de Lathum and John de Kirkby held the moiety of a knight's fee in Wrightington (Mamcestre, p. 404).
16 Then Rector of North Meols and perhaps also Vicar of Leyland.
17 Henry de Bolton, of Little Bolton, near Pendleton, was the last member of a family who had held the manor of Little Bolton from the twelfth century. Cf. Cockersand Chartulary, p. 704 in notis. The Gawyn or Gawen family continued here until the time of Elizabeth.

21 In the twelfth and the first half of the thirteenth century "Ordeshale" was a member of the royal demesnes in the Wapentake of Salford. According to a rental in the Pipe Roll of 10 Henry III., the assized rent of this manor was 32s. yearly. The same record shows that the farm of the moiety of Flixton was 10s. yearly and 1s. 6d. for Sakfee. It is probable that Pendleton was included in the assized rent of 32s. under the above title of "Ordeshale." In the 13 Henry III., Ranulf Blundevill, Earl of Chester, had a confirmation of the land between the Ribble and the Mersey, including the Wapentake of Salford and all its demesne lands. In the 17 Henry III., William de Ferrers, having married Agnes, one of the sisters and co-heirs of the said Ranulf, rendered relief for her lands, and the year following had livery of her pourparty, viz., the land between the Ribble and the Mersey. By charter dated at Hecham (Higham Ferrers) on the feast of the Translation of St. Thomas the Martyr, 35 Henry III., 1251, William de Ferrers, Earl of Derby, son of the last-named William, gave to his seneschal between the Ribble and the Mersey, viz., David de Hulton, his land in Flixton and the manor of Ordeshale for his homage and service of two marks of silver at the four usual terms of the year and for the sixth part of a knight's fee; which charter was attested by Sir Robert de Lathum, at that time Sheriff of Lancaster, Sir Adam de Bury, Sir Geoffrey de Chetham, Sir John de la Mare, Sir William de Clifton, Sir Thomas Maskerel, Sir Robert de Punchardon, Sir Robert de Umfravill, knights, Adam de Blakeburn, Richard de Trafford, Henry de Ryston (Rishton), Richard de Meluer, Alexander de Birches, Robert de Cundeclive, and others. Richard de Hulton, son and heir of David, succeeded his father before 1292, and duly appears in the account of the aid levied in 1302 as rendering 6s. 8d. for the sixth part of a knight's fee in "Hordesale and Flixton," which he held of the Earl of Lancaster (Lanc. Lay Subsidies, 130–3). Richard, his son, is named in the Extent of 1322, thus: "Richard de Hulton holds Ordesall and Flyxton for a teamland and a half by the service of 26s. 8d. yearly at the four terms and by the service of the sixth part of one knight's fee" (Dodsworth's MS. cxxxi, fol. 38). The knight's service and 6s. 8d. yearly was for Ordsall; for Flixton 20s. yearly was rendered. Richard de Hulton rendered to the aid of 4 Edward III., to make Henry, Earl of Lancaster's eldest son, a knight, for the sixth part of a knight's fee in "Hordeshale" (Duchy of Lanc., Knights' Fees, 1–11, m. 28). According to the Hulton pedigree, the last named Richard would be great grandson of David de Hulton. But it does not appear to be quite certain that he was not his grandson. He married Matilda, whose parentage is not known, and died s.p., having demised the manor of Ordsall and the moiety of Flixton to Robert, son of John de Legh, of Booths, co. Chester. The said Robert afterwards married the said Matilda, the widow. This appears from a plea at Preston, on Thursday after St. Nicholas, 5 Henry, Duke of Lancaster (1355). Another plea in the year following mentions a demise of a moiety of a mill in Flixton, made by Richard de Hulton to John, son of Richard de Radcliffe, the elder. Robert de Legh also appears to have made a release to Robert, son of Roger de Radcliffe, of his right in the manors of Ordsall and Flixton by deed dated at "Ordesale," 5th October, 13 Edward III. (1339). Robert de Radcliffe of Ordsall is said to have been a bastard son of Richard de Radcliffe of the Tower, but it will be noticed that he is here described as son of Roger de Radcliffe, who was an illegitimate brother of Richard de Radcliffe of the Tower. Robert's estate in the manors of Ordsall and Flixton devolved upon his nephew John de Radcliffe, the plaintiff in this Fine, which evidently embodies an agreement made in settlement of a long continued suit between Robert de Legh and Matilda, his wife, and the said John de Radcliffe. Although the Duchy of Lancaster Assize Rolls show that these estates passed from Richard de Hulton of Ordsall to Robert de Radcliffe, who was Sheriff of Lancaster in the 14–15 Edward III., and after his death without issue, to his kinsman John de Radcliffe, there appears to be some uncertainty whether the estates passed by gift, alienation or by reason of some undiscovered relationship between the families of Hulton and Radcliffe.

23 Wennington was a member of the lordship of Hornby, and was rated to Danegeld in 1066 at two ploughlands. Adam de Montbegon, who died circa 1189, enfeoffed Henry de Rokesby of this manor, to hold by knight's service, where 14 ploughlands make one knight's fee. (Inquest of co. Lanc., A.D. 1212, Testa de Nevill, p. 406b.) This Henry de Rokesby appears to have been of Rugby, co. Warwick (Pipe Roll, 3 John, s. t. Warw. and Leic.). Subsequently the manor reverted to the chief lord, and one moiety fell into the demesne. The other moiety of the manor was held in 1202 by Elias de Wenington, who recovered two oxgangs here by Fine levied at Lancaster that year (Lanc. Fines, Pt. i, p. 12). He attested a charter of Roger de Montbegon to Lancaster Priory, between 1217—1220 (Reg. of Lanc. Priory, p. 21). Adam, son of Elias de Wennington, gave to Cockersand Abbey the toft which Adam, son of Steinchil held, and 4 acres in the townfields of Wennington (Cockersand Chartulary, MS. f. 133). According to the inquest taken in 1242–3, touching the Scutage of Gascony, Adam de Wennington held the 14th part of a knight's fee of Hubert de Burgh, of the honour of Horneby, and he of Henry de Muneden (Monewden), and he of the King in chief (Testa de Nevill, p. 398). The immediate successors of Adam are not known, but Gilbert de Wennington held the manor at the death of Lady Margaret de Nevill, about January, 12 Edward II., 1319, and he is said to have been the father of Margaret, who, by her marriage to . . . de Morlegh, carried this manor into that family. (Cf. no. 122, p. 122, supra.)
24 Palatinate jurisdiction having been granted to Henry, Duke of Lancaster for the term of his life only, after his death on March 24th, 1361, the jurisdiction reverted into the hands of the Sovereign.
