In Alvreton, Flodberg, and Dallington, there was of the Soc of Stauntune, of the Fee of Walter de Ayncurt, as much as paid the Geld for six Bovats. (fn. 1) The Land two Car. There twelve Sochm. had three Car. and one hundred acres of Meadow: this Malger held, as in Staunton may be observed. Another Part here was Soc to Sibthorp, of Ilbert de Lacie's Fee; and another to Kilvington, of Hugh Fitz-Baldrick's Fee, which Augur held, and afterwards the Family of Morin, as in Kilvington is noted.

(fn. 2) John, the Son of Robert Morin, of Carcolston, 17 E. 3. passed a Mess. here to John, Son of William Morin, of Kilvington, and to Alice his Wife.

(fn. 3) Simon de Leek, named before in Kilvington, 1 H. 6. made a Letter of Attorney, to take Seisin of Agnes, who had been the Wife of William, Son of Roger de Thurverton, in one Moiety of a Toft, and three Bovats of Land, seven Acres of Meadow, &c. in Alverton, which descended to the said Agnes, by Right of Inheritance after the Death of John Morin, of Kercolston, her Father; and in the Reversion of the other Moiety after the Death of Raph de Bingham, of Kercolston, who then held it by the Law of England, after the Death of Elizabeth, late his Wife, all which the said Simon had of the Gift and Grant of the said Agnes, according to the Force and Effect of a certain Instrument or Chartel thereof by her made to him.

This went with Kilvington to the Family of Staunton, as there is shown; and William Staunton, Son of Robert, who made the Exchange, falling into the Hands of Henry Hewyt, Citizen and Cloathworker of London, for whom he proved too weak, gave him Possession of Alverton, and inclosed Part of Kilvington, 10 Dec. 1590, 33 Eliz. with whose Family, viz. Sir Thomas Hewyt, Son of William, it still continues.

William Wright, elder Brother of Josuah, the Grazier, had a Freehold, and built an House there, now the Inheritance of John Dickinson, of Claypole, in Lincolnshire.
