  • 1. John Waxand port d'argent une fees de goules et deux cressantz de goules en le chief (Coll. Top. et Gen. ii. 328). These arms are in the north window of Kirkby Sigston Church.
  • 2. Lund-on-the-Wolds, in the East Riding, is placed under Allertonshire, because the Bishop of Durham, who was Lord of the Liberty of Allerton, held considerable estates at Lund. The same arrangement occurs in the Nomina Villarum, which was compiled in 1315–6, when Marmaducus de Thwenge and Robertus de la More, both of whom are mentioned above, were the Lords of the place (Kirkby's Inquest, p. 341). Thweng's Inq. p. m. was taken at Stokesley on Saturday before St. Mark's Day (April 23rd, 1323), when William de Thweng, his son and heir, was aged thirty and upwards. He died seized of the mannors of Lythe, now Kirkleatham, and Kilton, held of Henry de Percy by knight service. The capital messuage and dovecotes at the former place were worth 4s a year. Two carucates of land 100s, the mill 100s. At Kilton the capital messuage (now called Kilton Castle) was worth 12d, "et in dannuo redditu xls" (Inq. p.m., 16 Edw. II., No. 51).
  • 3. Enthorpe, Lund par.
  • 4. Osmotherley. The Domesday Asmundrelac, i. e. —Osmund's ley or lay.
  • 5. Thimbleby, Osmotherley par., and Foxton, Kirkby Sigston par.
  • 6. Deighton, near Welbury.
  • 7. Birkby. Domesday Bretebi.
  • 8. Holme, in the parish of Pickhill. Howgrave refers to Sutton Howgrave, already mentioned under the Wapentake of Halikeld, to which it properly belongs (see p. 5). They are coupled together in the Nomina Villarum (Kirkby's Inquest, p. 340), at which time they both belonged to Robert de Coigners.
  • 9. Upsland (see p. 7).
  • 10. Girsby, Domesday Grisebi.
  • 11. West Rounton. The history of this small parish is but little known. The following charters, copied from the originals in the possession of the Dean and Chapter of Durham, show how the advowson came into the possession of the Priory of Durham :—Radulfus super Teysiam . . . . caritatis intuitu et pro salute anime mee et omnium predecessorum meorum . . . . in liberam puram et perpetuam elemosinam, Deo et B. Cuthberto et Monachis Dunelmensibus, ad luminare circa corpus B. Cuthberti, ecclesias de Rungeton' et de Ditneshale (Dinsdale-on-the-Tees) cum omnibus pert. suis, sicut in carta Ricardi fratris mei, quam inde habent, plenius continetur. Et in hujus rei test, presens scriptum sigilli mei munimine roboravi. Hiis testibus. Magistro Willelmo Archidiacono Dunelm., Magistris Petro, Canonico de Dernington, et Willelmo de Manefeld', Waltero de Audrey, Jordano de Dalden', Jordano Hayron, Willelmo de Hessewell', Nigello de Rungeton', Willelmo Hayron, Johanne et Willelmo de Rungeton', Roberto de Hessewell', Willelmo de Lond', Willelmo de Sciringham, Thoma et Waltero de Hurthewrth', Roberto de Nunnewich', Roberto Camerario Prioris, Johanne de Midelton', Willelmo de Estampes (Durham Charters, 2da, 1ma Ebor. No. 14). Endorsed "C. Rad' super Theysam de ecclesiis de Rungeton et Ditneshale" "datis Monachis ad luminare circa feretrum." The seal of green wax, circular, 1 2/8 in. in diameter, bears the very suitable device of a salmon. + SIGILL' RADVLFI SVP' TEIS. The grant by Richard "super Teisam" was witnessed by Heimeric, Archdeacon of Durham, Phillip (sic) de Ullekotes, Jordan Escoll (and), Geoffrey de Coigneriis, Walter de Musters, William de Yreby, Robert de Hadictun', William de Stichil, Alan de Richemunt Masters (sic), Roger de Toggesdene (Ibid. No. 17*). Seal, yellow wax, circular, 17/8 in. Knight wearing round-topped helmet, shield close to the body, sword drawn. SIGILL'V RICARDI SVP' TEISSAM. Rann' de Dyttneshale, Beatrix his wife, and Robert, their son and heir, granted and confirmed this advowson to God and the Blessed Cuthbert, and to Hugh (de Puiset), Bishop of Durham (1153–1195), "ad luminaria circa corpus B. Cuthberti in perp. invenienda." Then follows a very interesting clause, stating that the donor and his son had made their gift on the altar of the Blessed Cuthbert in his church, and Beatrix on the altar of the Blessed Mary in the west part of the same church, called the Galilee. "Et hanc donacionem nostram fecimus et obtulimus propriis manibus nostris, ego Rann', et ego Ricardus, super altare B. Cuthberti in ecclesia sua, et ego Beatrix super altare B. Marie in occidentali parte ejusdem ecclesie, que Galilea vocatur." This is the earliest mention of the Galilee, which had been built at the west end of the Cathedral by Bishop Hugh Puiset about 1175, a few years before. The line of darkcoloured Frosterley marble, lying between the two piers immediately west of the north and south doors of the nave, still marks the limit, east of which no woman was allowed to go. Witnesses, G(erman), Prior (1163–1186), and the Convent of Durham, William, Archdeacon of Northumberland, Simon the Chamberlain, Mr. Richard de Coldingham, William, son of the archbishop, Mr. Steffan de Lincolnia, Ernald and Simon, chaplains of the bishop, Mr. Hamo, William the Almoner, Henry de Puteaco, Gillebert Hansard, Roger de Coisneres, and Robert his son, Michael, son of Brien, Richard de Parca, Walter de Walton, Gillebert de Leia, Robert de Walsant, Geoffrey de Parca, Godfrey Bayard and Rolland Bayard (Ibid. No. 16). Endorsed:—Carta Rannulfi de super teisam de ecclesia de Rungetona. Seal, yellow wax, circular, 2 ins. Knight wearing conical helmet with two straps behind, shield raised above the level of the eye, short housings on the horse, but long dress on the rider. + SIGILLVM: RANVLFI: FIL II WILLELMI. There is a further confirmation (Ibid. Nos. 17, 19) of this advowson by Roger de Coisneres and Robert his son and heir, to Bishop Puiset, who was to hold it, "sicut Rann', quondam Dunelmensis Episcopus (1099–1128), illud plenius et melius habuit, antequam villam de Rungeton' patri nostro Rogero de Coisneres daret."The Witnesses the same, with omissions as in the last, with the addition of Ralph de Cestria. The seal bears a maunche, perhaps the earliest representation of the well-known Conyers bearing, Azure a maunche or. Legend almost destroyed. There is one other Rounton charter (No. 15), in this series. It is sealed with the seal used in No. 16, and by it Rann', son of William de Super Teisam, granted to God and the church of St. Oswald of Rungeton "unum masuagium quod est inter cimiterium ejusdem ecclesie et viam que ducit ad molendinum, et gardinum quod situm est in aqua de Wisc subtus ipsum molendinum." Witnesses, Sir (dominus) Simon the Chamberlain, Master William of Blois (Blesensis), Mr. Richard de Coldingham, William, son of the archbishop, William de Houeden', Adam and Simon, chaplains, Philip the Sheriff, Gilbert de Leia, Robert de Watevilla, Rann' de Fisseborn', Jordan Escollant', Henry de Broc, Roger Burdun, William son of Thomas, Osbert de Laton', Geoffrey de Torp, and Alexander de Hamelton. The manor of West Rounton remained in the possession of the Conyers family until the second quarter of the fourteenth century, when, with the manor of St. Helen's, Auckland, in Durham, it passed to Sir Robert de Colville of Arncliff and Dale on his marriage with Elizabeth, daughter and heiress of Sir John Conyers of Sockburn. After the extinction of the Colvilles, early in the fifteenth century, West Rounton fell to the share of the Wandesfords of Kirklington, the representatives of Isabel Colville, the senior co-heiress.
  • 12. Ellerbeck, Osmotherley par.
  • 13. Over Dinsdale, Sockburn par. Domesday Digneshale, Dirneshala, Dineshale. Called Dineshale in 1196, and Dytneshale and Dytineshale in 1239. (Yorkshire Archæol. Journal, xi. 179, 180.)
  • 14. Knayton and Brawith, Leake par.
  • 15. There is no total for the wapentake, but low down these figures occur (part of a larger sum), iiijli xvjs ijd; which may possibly represent part of the total, but whether with or without the usual incrementum it is impossible to say, as the membrane is in such bad condition.
