THE PREFACE. 



THE important record which for at least three centuries has 
been known to historical inquirers by the name of Kirkby s 
Quest or Inquest, was a Survey of several of the counties of 
England,, made in the reign of Edward the First, by the King s 
Treasurer, John de Kirkby, and his fellows, who, under the 
authority of a royal commission, enquired, according to the 
ancient custom by inquests or verdicts of juries, concerning the 
fees held either immediately of the king, or of others who held 
of the king in capite. The volume which contains the result of 
these inquests or verdicts is said to be in some respects ana 
logous to Domesday Book, inasmuch as it comprehends all the 
immediate military tenants of the crown/ 

The eminent author^ of the History of South Yorkshire, in 
his preface to the first volume of that valuable work, states that 
in his opinion Kirkby s Inquest, and the returns called the 
Nomina Villarum, claimed the earliest attention of the Com 
missioners of Public Records ; and he adds, cc I speak my own 
experience when I say, that no single records have afforded 
more useful and more extensive information than these have 
done. The Pipe Rolls only, on account of their high antiquity, 
and their closer bearing on the public transactions of the realm, 
can be said to surpass them in their claims on the attention of 
those Commissioners ."

VI THE PREFACE. 

the Commissioners of Public Records have only published the 
Nomina Villarum," which is printed in a bulky and expensive 
form,, the Surtees Society has undertaken to present to its 
members in the present volume as complete a copy of Kirkby s 
Inquest for Yorkshire as can be obtained from the records now 
known to exist. The volume contains also several Inquisitions 
of Knights Fees for Yorkshire, and the Nomina Villarum for 
the same county. 

The history of the record itself is involved in a cloud of 
mystery, which I regret my inability to dispel completely. The 
original returns of the jurors have not been discovered; and, 
excepting that part which relates to Yorkshire, only one copy 
of the Inquest is known to be extant. This MS., which is 
preserved in the Queen s Remembrancer s Department of the 
Exchequer, cannot be assigned to an earlier date than the reign 
of Henry the Eighth. It contains an abridgment only of the 
original survey/ and there is nothing to shew whence it was 

c Subjoined is a list of the counties and the names of the commissioners, 
the heading of the first roll being given in full.

derived. It is remarkable that the Commission authorizing the 
Inquest to be taken cannot be found. Madox, who knew more 
of the Exchequer records than any other person, and had read 
the whole of the earlier Memoranda and Pipe Rolls, never 
alludes to it either in his History of the Exchequer, or in the 
many volumes of his MS. collections now in the British Museum. 
Nor does Agard, who well knew the importance of the Inquest, 
mention such a Commission in his Calendar of the Patent Rolls. 
Mr. Hunter, also, who spent many years in arranging the 
Miscellanea of the Exchequer, never met with it either in its 
original sealed form, or in that of an enrolment. The more 
recent researches of Mr. Walbraii have been equally fruitless/ 
It is scarcely necessary to add that no copy of the Commission 
has been found in any of the MSS. hereinafter enumerated. 

Various dates/ ranging from the 5th to the 35th Edward I., 
have been assigned to this Survey. As the validity of many 
statements based on the text of the Inquest is affected by 
the question of its date, both as regards pedigrees and the 

d The preceding facts have been most obligingly communicated by Mr. Walbran. 

e Mr. Hunter says, Kirkby s Inquest was taken in 1277, the 5th Edward I. 
(South Yorks., i., preface}. A translation of the return for the wapentake of 
Holderness is given in the History of that Seigniory, by Mr. Poulson (vol. i., 
p. 40). He states that the Inquisition "was taken before John de Kirby, trea 
surer to King Edward I., and other commissioners, assigned to enquire of the 
fees holden immediately of the crown in the county of York, and the rents of 
assize then due, by virtue of the commission. It is attested at Clifton, March 5, 
1281, ninth Edward I." And he adds in a note, " it was completed in 1295, and 
is preserved in the Exchequer. It has been lately printed in Palgrave s Writs." 
Mr. Poulson is here unconsciously referring to the writ of king Edward II., 
directing the returns of the Nomina Villarum, which was tested at " Clipston, 
quinto die Martii, anno regui nostri nono" (page 301, postea). In some tran 
scripts of "the Inquest the date is referred to the 24th Edward I. (page 1, postea, 
note e). Mr. Thomas, in his Handbook to the Public Records (page 211), states 
the Inquest to have been taken in the 35th Edward I., by Adam Kirkeby or 
Kirby, then Treasurer ; and this error is repeated by Mr. Sims in his Manual for 
the Genealogist, Topographer and Antiquary.

Vlll THE PREFACE. 

tenure of estates at a certain time by particular individuals, 
and as the Inquest lias been frequently confounded with the 
"Nomina Villarum," which belongs to the 9th Edward 11., 
it is necessary that this point, at least, should not be left in 
doubt. The present volume contains ample evidence-^ that, with 
the exception of Richmondshire/ which was not surveyed until 
two years later, the Inquisitions for the county of York were 
taken in the thirteenth year of Edward I. (1284-5). In the 
return for Langbargh wapentake the exact day is named, " die 
Sabbati proximo ante Passionem Domini, anno regni regis 
Edwardi tertio decimo." The Coucher Book of Fountains Abbey 
contains several extracts from the Itinerary (as it is there called) 
of John de Kirkby, and the date uniformly assigned in each of 
these is the 13th Edward I. Even had no date been named 
in any transcript of the Inquest now extant, a tolerably close 
approximation is furnished by the Proofs of age and Inquisitions 
post mortem of persons holding lands at the time the Survey 
was taken. Two examples may be adduced. William de Aid- 
field, 7 who is certified as holding the vill of Aldfield, in the 
wapentake of Claro, did not attain his full age until the 29th 
of April, 12th Edward I. The Inq. p. m. of Peter de Gous- 
liill/ who held certain lands in Beeford, in the wapentake of 
Holdcrness, was taken in November, 14th Edward I. It is 
obvious that the Survey must have been made during the period 
limited by these dates J 

In the absence of the Commission itself, or of any copy of 
it, the special purpose for which this Inquest was required can 
only be conjectured. Probably it was to afford the king more 
ample information than he previously possessed preparatory to 

f See pp. 31, 124, 138. * See page 148. 

; See page 46. See page 74. 

J The fact that Kirkby was not appointed Treasurer until January 6th, 12th 
Edward I., of course limits the date of the Inquest in one direction, and his death 
in the eighteenth year of the same reign in the other. 



THE PREFACE. IX 

the issuing of writs of military service, and the levying of sub 
sidies. It would be analogous to that valuation of property 
which precedes the rating at the present day. How much 
money the king could get from a particular manor or estate, in 
the form of subsidy, and how many men he could raise when 
he was going out against his enemies, were questions regulated 
by the nature of the tenure and the quantity of the land, and 
it was therefore his policy to have these settled with the greatest 
exactness. 

A copy is not extant of the Capitula, or articles of inquiry 
presented to the Commissioners, which would doubtless vary 
according to circumstances. Some of them, however, can be 
recovered from the returns now printed. As the full sense of 
many of the terms used is not easily rendered by a mere transla 
tion, I give them in their original form.

Of these nineteen Articles, answers to the first three may 
be found in the returns for nearly all the wapentakes included 
in this volume ; the fifth and sixth occur only in the inquisition 
for Ryedale ; and the remainder, or some of them, are limited 
to the wapentakes of Ouse and Derwent, Skyrack, Langbargh, 
and Pickering Lythe. This peculiarity is perhaps explained by 
the fact that, with the exception of the four last-named wapen 
takes, the returns now extant for the county of York are abridg 
ments only of the original inquisitions. As an illustration of 
the nature and extent of this abridgment, I give two versions of 
the entry relating to Gate Helmsley :

of Ouse and Derwent, which is entered in one of the Registers belonging to the 
Dean and Chapter of Durham, in a handwriting which maj- be assigned to the

Inquisition is an actual copy of the original text of Kirkby.

Before I proceed to describe some of the principal MSS. 
used in the preparation of the present volume, a short account 
of the eminent ecclesiastic whose name is inseparably associated 
with the Inquest may be appropriately introduced. 

John de Kirkby was of an ancient and knightly Leicester 
shire family, which took its name from the village of Kirkby 
Belers in that county. He was the eldest son of Sir William 
de Kirkby/ 1 of Melton Moubray, by his wife Emma de Gorham. ?t 
The year of his birth has not been ascertained, and little is 
known of his early history. On the 12th of April, 1265, he 
became dean of Wimbourne Minster, in Dorsetshire. On the 
7th of August, 1268, he obtained the living of Thorpe, near 
Newark/ which he resigned on the 18th of October following. 1 ? 
On the 8th of May, 1270, Robert de Nevill presented him to 
the rectory of Burnsall in Craven/ In 1272 he occurs as arch 
deacon of Coventry.* On the death of Richard de Middelton 
in August, 1272, the king committed the great seal into the 
custody of John de Kirkby, who was then, probably, either an 
officer of the Exchequer, or a clerk of the Chancery. Six years 
later he was again placed in possession of the great seal, as the 
substitute of Robert Burnell,the chancellor, when he went abroad; 
and the same coursewas repeated on several other occasions during 
that chancellor s temporary absences/ In 1278 he occurs as

rector of St. Berians in Cornwall." On the llth of November , 
1279, he was collated to a prebend in the church of York, which 
had been held by cardinal Hugh de Evesham." On the 10th of 
January, 1280-1, archbishop Wickwaine directed that " dominus 
J. de Kirkeby, regis clericus familiaris," should not have his 
benefices sequestered.^ In 1283, being then archdeacon of 
Coventry, he was elected bishop of Rochester, but he renounced 
his right before archbishop Peckham at Michelham on the 1 7th 
of May, 1283.* On the 6th of January, 1283-4, 12th Edward I., 
he was made Lord Treasurer, which office he continued to hold 
until his deaths 

On the 26th of July, 1286, he was elected to the bishopric 
of Ely, which had become vacant by the death of Hugh de Bals- 
ham. 2 Although he had previously held s.o many ecclesiastical 
dignities, Kirkby, at this time, was only in deacon s orders. He 
was advanced to the priesthood, at Feversham, on the 21st of 
September, by the primate, John de Peckham ; on the following 
day he a was consecrated by him in Canterbury cathedral ; and 
on the 24th of December, in the same year, was enthroned at 
Ely by Richard de Ferynges, archdeacon of Canterbury. Within 
four years afterwards a violent fever terminated his career. He 
died at Ely on Palm Sunday, " circa horam completorii," 1290, 
and was buried in his own cathedral, "coram cruce, ex parte 
boriali chori, ante altare Sancti Johannis Baptistse.^ 5 By his

XIV THE PREFACE. 

The earliest copy of Kirkby s Inquest for Yorkshire now 
known to be extant,, .is preserved in the Registry of the Dean 
and Chapter of York. This manuscript is a thin folio, twelve 
inches long by eight and a half inches wide, written on parch 
ment in a uniform hand, which may be assigned to the latter 
half of the fifteenth century. It contains fifty-nine leaves, of 
which the first six are not paged, the remaining fifty-three being 
occupied by the Inquest. There is nothing to shew whence 
this copy was derived, or by whom made. From the following 
memoranda on the first page, written in a contemporary hand, 
the MS. would appear to have once belonged to Sir Miles 
Wilstrop, of Wilstrop in the Ainsty, who was living in 1484.

THE PREFACE. XV 

Miles Wilstrop was the king s escheator in Yorkshire from 
the 5th of November, 9th Edward IV. to the 5th of November 
following, and this copy of the Inquest may possibly have been 
made for his official use.^ 

The second, fourth, and fifth pages of the York MS. are 
blank. On the third page is a Latin enigma? in the hand 
writing of Richard Gascoigne, the antiquary. This is followed 
by some extracts from the Testa de Nevill, which occupy nearly 
six pages. Kirkby s Inquest commences 011 the thirteenth page 
(folio 1), and is thus entitled : Rotulus feodorum qua tenentur 
de rege et de aliis diversis in comitatu Eboracensi, secundum 
Inquisitiones inde facias coram domino Johanne de Kyrkeby, 
tune thesaurario domini regis, et sociis suis ad hoc assignatis per 
ipsum regem ; et etiam de redditibus assizes regi debitis secundum 
easdem Inquisitiones. 

In the absence of the original rolls it is impossible to say 
whether these Inquisitions embraced the whole county. All 

For some particulars relating to this family, see page 27, postea. 
P Of the subsequent history of the York MS. little is known. Sometime 
hefore the close of the sixteenth century it came into the possession of Francis 
Bunny, rector of Eyton, co. Durham, and archdeacon of Northumberland, whose 
name, written in a bold Elizabethan hand, on what is probably the original bind 
ing, I accidentally discovered on removing a portion of the present outer cover 
of the book. The rector of Eyton was the third son of Eichard Bunny, esq., of 
Newlands, near Wakefield, and died without surviving issue, April 16th, 1617. 
His heir-at-law was his elder brother, Edmund Bunny, rector of Bolton Percy, 
and canon of York, who died s. p. February 6th, 1617-8, and was interred in 
York Minster. His epitaph records that 

" Yasa sacra(ta) librosque dedit post funera templo, 

Et bona pauperibus csetera ; seque Deo." 

A list of the books bequeathed to the church of York by the " aged Edmund " 
has not been preserved, but there can be little doubt that this copy of the Inquest 
was one of them.

Anser ovem maculat, cui potum vacca ministrat. 
Expone et redde sensum." 



XVI THE PREFACE. 

the transcripts that I have seen are more or less imperfect, and 
the York MS. contains the returns for the following wapentakes 
and liberties only, which are arranged without any regard to 
their proper classification in Ridings : Strafforth, Staincliffe, 
Dickering, the Ainsty, Ouse and Derwent, Morley, (the town 
of) Driffield, Birdforth, Allertonshire, Buckrose, Hang, Holder- 
ness, Hallikeld, Bulmer, Ryedale, Gilling, Skyrack, (part of) 
Harthill, Howdenshire, Claro, Byland liberty, Barkston, and 
(part of) Harthill. 

Two of the MSS. mentioned below contain the returns for 
Langbargh and Pickering wapentakes, but for those of Agbrigg, 
Ewcross, Osgoldcross, Staincross and Whitby- Strand, and the 
liberties of Aldborough, Knaresborough and Eipon, none have 
been discovered. Perhaps Osgoldcross and Staincross were not 
surveyed on account of all the manors being held by one 
person, as appears from the Nomina Villarum; Aldborough 
with its dependencies was ancient demesne in the hands of the 
crown ; and with regard to the other wapentakes and liberties 
not included in the returns now extant, the Commissioners may 
have met with similar treatment to that experienced a few years 
later by the jurors appointed to enquire concerning Knights 
Fees : 

" Ballivi Comitis Warenni non permittunt nos intrare libertatem 
Comitis, unde praejudicate vos " (page 227, postea}. " Tcnentes 
Comitis Warenni neque in Halomshire nee Donecastre, cum socagio, 
corani nobis noluerunt respondere nee venire, ideo de eis nihil possumus 
respondere" (page 231, posted). 

Although it is occasionally corrupt in its nomenclature, the 
York MS. appears upon the whole to be more correct than any 
other copy of the Inquest that I have had the opportunity of 
examining. It has on this account, therefore, been selected for

the wapentake of Ouse and Derwent and the liberty of Rich-

long by 7} inches wide, lettered on the back, KIRKBY QUEST, 
ETC. DOM. CAP. WESTM. Class-mark, B., i., 11. Hand

Nomina Villaram for Yorkshire. This is followed by Kirkby s 
Inquest for the same county, which agrees in general arrange 
ment with the York MS., and comprises the same wapentakes. 
The remaining portion of the book is occupied by Inquisitions 
of Knights Fees, taken in the 31st Edward I., for the wapen 
takes and liberties of Claro, Skyrack, Knaresborough, Aid- 
borough, Ripon, Barkston, the Ainsty, Morley, Agbrigg,

B., iv., 24. Handwriting, about the middle of the sixteenth

for the same wapentakes as the York and A. MSS., but there is 
a slight difference in their arrangement. In addition to the 
Inquisitions of Knights Fees, 31st Edward I., as given in the 
MS. last described, this volume contains a valuable return of a 
similar nature, and of the same date, for the wapentake of 
Staincliffe. 

* There is another copy of Kirkby s Inquest in the Eegistry of the Dean and 
Chapter of York, which agrees generally with the MS. just described. It is 
contained in a Feodary s Book, written in the reign of queen Elizabeth, the 
class-mark of which is 31. This MS. also comprises transcripts of Inquisitions 
of Knights Fees and the Nomina Villarum for Yorkshire. It is hereinafter 
referred to by the letter F.

wide. Class-mark, No. 52. T. G. 15,644. Handwriting, about 
the middle of the sixteenth century. Besides a transcript of the 
Inquest for the county of York, which agrees generally with the 
MSS. already described, except that the wapentake of Harthill 
is placed between those of Strafforth and Staincliffe, this book 
contains copies of Rolls of Fees abstracted from Inquisitions 
taken by John de Kirkby and his fellows in other parts^ of 
England. It likewise contains a mass of matter, derived chiefly 
from the accounts of the escheators in the time of Edward I. 
and Edward II., and comprehending facts possibly not to be 
found elsewhere. The following is a sample of the entries, 
taken from the compotus of Thomas de Burgh, escheator ultra 
Trentam, 15th Edward II. : 

" QUIXLE. Terrse ibidem mine Johannis Crokedayk tenentur de

John de Kirkby in the wapentakes of Langbargh and Pickering, 
which are not found in any of the above-mentioned MSS. It

writing most of the MSS. seem to be." Nicholas Wanton was the youngest son 
and heir of Thomas Wanton, esq., of London, by Joan, only daughter and 
heiress of John Laxton, esq., brother and heir of Sir William Laxton, knight. 
He died unmarried, March 2nd, 1617-8, and was buried in York Minster.

includes, also, two versions of the Inquest for Skyrack wapen- 
take. One agrees generally with the abstract given in the York 
MS. The other is entitled, " Wapentagium de Skyrack alio 
modo/" and appears to be a transcript of the original return. 
That these two versions may be compared, I have printed both 
on the same page. 

(S.)Addit. MS., 26,729, in the British Museum. A Feo- 
dary s Book/ partly written in the reign of queen Elizabeth, 
and partly in the seventeenth century. This MS. comprises a 
portion of Kirkby s Inquest for Yorkshire, and includes the 
return for the wapentake of Pickering, of which only one other 
copy is known to be extant. It likewise contains transcripts 
of the Inquisitions taken by John de Kirkby in Richmondshire, 
which differ in several important particulars from the MSS. 
already described, and also from the Register of the Honor of 
Richmond (Cott. MSS., Faust. B. vii.), whence the text for this 
portion of the Inquest is derived/

Smyth, esq., of Heath Hall, near Wakefield.

* A copy of the Inquest is preserved in the Library of the Leeds Grammar 
School. It is thus described in the printed Catalogue : " An Inquisition taken 
by John de Kirkby and his associates, Commissioners assigned by the writ arid 
order of king Edward I. Copied from the originals by T. Wilson, 1747, in folio." 
This manuscript, however, was not " copied from the originals." According to 
the title-page, it was " Transcribed from an Antient MS. belonging unto the 
Bight hon. Family of the Percys, Earls of Northumberland., by John Hopkinson 
of Lofthouse, Gent., Clerk of the Peace for the West Biding, 1656 ; which Tran 
script was generously communicated by Bichard Bichardson of Byerley, Esq., the 
very good Friend of T. Wilson, anno 1747." The volume comprises the Nomina 
Villarum for Yorkshire, an abridged version of Kirkby s Inquest, and several 
Inquisitions of Knights Fees, but it contains nothing which may not be found 
in the MSS. already described, and the text is exceedingly corrupt. 

I would take this opportunity of thanking Dr. Henderson, the Head Master, 
for his kindness in allowing me to examine this MS. 



XX THE PREFACE. 

Langbargh, Pickering and Skyrack, all the so-called copies or 
transcripts of the Inquest that have just been described must 
be considered as abstracts only of the original Inquisitions ; and 
from the fact that in all the above-mentioned MSS. the entry 
relating to the town of Driffield, in the East Riding, is placed 
between the returns for the wapentake of Morley, in the West 
Riding, and that of Birdforth, in the North Riding, there can 
be little doubt that these abstracts were originally derived from 
a common source. 

As nearly all the above-mentioned MSS. were found to 
contain copies of Inquisitions of Knights Fees, taken in the 
31st Edward I., for the wapentakes and liberties of Claro, 
Skyrack, Knaresborough, Aldborough, Ripon, Barkston, the 
Ainsty, Morley, Agbrigg, Strafforth, and Tickhill, some of 
which were not included, and others only partially surveyed, in 
Kirkby s Inquest, and more particularly, also, as these Inquisi 
tions, with others mentioned below, appeared to afford a valuable 
means of testing its general accuracy, it has been considered 
advisable to print them in the present volume. To these have 
been added similar Inquisitions, of the same date, for the wapen 
takes of Langbargh, Pickering, Howdenshire, Holderness, Dic 
kering, Harthill, and Buckrose, and the returns of the Aid 
granted to king Edward I., all derived from the original Subsidy 
Rolls preserved among the Miscellaneous Records of the Queen s 
Remembrancer in the Exchequer, which I obtained permission 
to transcribe through the kind offices of Mr. Walbran, who was 
the first to point them out as useful for this work. 

Although the " Nomina Villarum " for the county of York 
has already appeared in print under the editorial care of Sir 
Francis Palgrave, yet since the work y in which it is included is 
not accessible to students of Yorkshire topography generally, 
and is inconveniently cumbrous in its bulk, it has been thought 

" Parliamentary Writs, vol. ii.., div. iii. 



THE PREFACE. XXI 

expedient to append this document to a record, of which it is a 
valuable illustration. Except where otherwise stated, the text 
now printed is derived from the Harleian MS., 6281, which 
was one of those used by Sir Francis Palgrave. A description 
of this MS. is given at page 302, posted ; and to what is there 
stated I will only add that no pains have been spared to correct 
the errors of a corrupt text. 

The illustrative documents printed in the Appendix have 
been chiefly derived from the archiepiscopal registers at York. 
Among them will be found some valuable Inquisitions of Knights 
Fees in the wapentakes of Buhner and Holderness, containing 
particulars relating to several places not named in Kirkby s In 
quest; similar Inquisitions of Fees held of the see of York in the 
counties of York. Nottingham, Lincoln, Leicester and Glou 
cester ; a List of all the Homages rendered to the archbishops 
for lands in Yorkshire held of the see ; and several early grants 
of wardship and marriage. The Appendix concludes with some 
tables of Land Measure, etc., taken from a Rental of Henry, 
earl of Northumberland, which are valuable as being calculations 
on the subject of carucates and oxgangs, made while the feudal 
system was in existence. 

The corrupt and irregular nomenclature of Kirkby s Inquest 
and the Nomina Villarum has partly rendered necessary the 
preparation of a somewhat elaborate Index Locorum, which, it 
is hoped, will prove not the least valuable portion of this work. 
As far as they can be identified, the Domesday names and the 
modern names of all the Yorkshire vills mentioned in the text 
are given in parallel columns, references being added to the 
facsimile edition of Domesday Book, and to the sheets of the 
Ordnance Survey on the 6-inch scale. 

In conclusion, the editor begs to offer the thanks of the 
Surtees Society to the Dean and Chapter of York, for their 
liberality in having placed at its disposal an early copy of 
Kirk by s Inquest, which has furnished the text of a considerable

portion of this work ; to Messrs. Buckle and Hudson,, for per 
mission to extract from the archiepiscopal registers what might 
be necessary for the purpose of illustration ; to the Rev. H. O. 
Coxe, keeper of the Bodleian Library, for the unrestricted use 
of the Dodsworth and Rawlinson MSS.; and to Joseph Munby, 
Esq., of York, for the loan of the Percy MSS. 

The editor desires, also, to tender his personal acknowledg 
ments to Professor Max Miiller, H. A. Hudson, Esq., and C. A. 
Thiselton, Esq., for their unvarying courtesy and attention ; and 
to T. Burton, Esq., C. Jackson, Esq., and Dr. Sykes, for their 
obliging communications. 

Above all, the writer must express his grateful thanks to 
his kind relative, Robert Davies, Esq., to the Rev. Canon Raine, 
and to J. R. Walbran, Esq., for the aid and counsel they have 
at all times afforded, and for their valuable assistance in secur 
ing the general accuracy of this his first literary essay.

a Except where otherwise stated, this text is printed from a Manuscript, 
written in the latter part of the fifteenth century, which is now preserved in the 
Eegistry of the Dean and Chapter of York. Torre s reference to it is P.y. 

A description of this MS., as well as of other copies of Kirkby s Inquest with 
which it has been collated, has been given in the Preface, and it is only necessary 
here to supplement what is there stated by a few explanatory remarks. 

Although, upon the whole, the York MS. is, apparently, the most correct of 
any of the so-called transcripts of this Inquest which I have had the opportunity 
of examining, the names of places and persons are occasionally so corruptly 
given that considerable difficulty has in consequence been experienced in their 
identification. It has on this account, therefore, been considered inadvisable to 
perpetuate in every case the errors in the text now printed ; but no alteration has 
been made where the slightest doubt has occurred as to the place or person 
intended. The more minute variations between the York MS. and some of those 
mentioned below are not recorded, and the bracketted portions of the text, in the 
instances unnoted, are supplied by conjecture. In the different readings given 
in the attendant notes, the several letters appended refer to the following MSS. : 

A. A book marked B., i., 11, in the Treasury of Receipt of the Exchequer 
Department of the Public Record Office. 

B. A book marked B., iv., 24, in the same Department. 

C. A book numbered 52 in the Queen s Remembrancer s Department of the 
Exchequer.

Edwardi primi, A. Even if we possessed no other evidence, the fact that John 
de Kirkby died on Palm Sunday, 18th Edward I. (Calendarium Genealogicum, 
i., 416), would prove this date to be incorrect. The Coucher Book of Fountains 
contains, however, several extracts from this Inquisition, which are thus headed : 
" In Itinere Johannis Kyrkby, anno regni regis Edwardi primi xiij, habetur 
sic." It appears, also, from the Rawlinson MS. (450 B, 84) that the Inquisition 
for Langbargh wapentake was taken " apud Ormesby, coram domino Johanne 
de Kirkeby, thesaurario domini regis, die Sabbati proximo ante Passionem Do 
mini, anno regni regis Edwardi tertio decimo." The surveys for the wapen- 
takes of Skyrack (. Ibid., 43) and Ouse and Derwent (Reg. apud Dunelm.) are also 
stated to have been made in the same year. There was a separate Inquisition 
for Richmondshire, which was not taken until the 15th Edward I. (Cott. MS. 
Faust., B, viii., fo. 90). 

d This wapentake, which also comprises a portion of the liberty of Tickhill, 
has been collated with MSS. A. and C. This note belongs to the preceding page. 

* Isabella and Idonea de Vipont, the daughters and co-heiresses of Robert de 
Vipont, were the widows respectively of Roger de Clifford, junior, and Roger 
de Leyburn. Idonea re-married John de Cromwell, and died s.p. about 1333. 
In the Inq. p.m. of the above Roger de Clifford, taken in the llth Edward I., 
the jurors say that " ipse Rogerus de Clifford et dominus Rogerus de Leyburne 
tenuerunt manerium de Maltheby ; et hoc ratione uxorum suarum quse erant 
filise et hseredes domini Roberti de Veteri Ponte " (Cal. Gen., i., 331).

of Tickhill then belonged, gave Laughton to Geoffrey de Lusignan (S. YorJcs..

" The historian of " South Yorkshire," in his description of Bolton-upon- 
Dearne, says (vol. i., p. 381), " that it appears not to have been the site of one 
single Saxon, surrounded by his villains and borderers, but of four different lords, 
whose names, in the time of the Confessor, were Osulf, Ligulf, Turchil, and 
Ernui. In the new distribution which took place at the Conquest, Osulf s por 
tion was given to De Busli, and the rest to William de Perci. Before the date 
of Domesday, Percy had placed two subinfeudatories in all his lands in this part 
of the kingdom ; viz., Malger in Edlington and Barnby ; and E/ozeline in Bolton, 
Thribergh, and Dalton." That Mr. Hunter has, in this account, mistaken the 
entry in Domesday Book relating to Bolton Percy in the Ainsty for that refer 
ring to Bolton-upon-Dearne, both of which formed part of the great possessions 
of William de Perci, and are described on the same page of that record (^Domes 
day Booh, edit. 1862, p. 48), but in different columns, will, I think, be evident 
by comparing the entries there given with the Eecapitulatio (Ibid., pp. 81 1, 82 b), 
and also with the Clamores (Ibid., p. 79), where " Homines de Anestig wapentac. 
testificant [quod] in Bodeltune habet Willelmus de Perci v car. de terra Ligulf." 
Moreover, the eight carucates which Ligulf, Turchil, and Ernui held in Bodeton- 
upon-Dearne, according to Mr. Hunter, is the precise quantity allotted to Bolton 
Percy in Kirkby s Inquest : another instance of " the exact correspondency of 
those two noble records."

This William was the son and heir of Sir Nicholas de Ebor., brother to 
"William, provost of Beverle} r and bishop of Salisbury. Without vouching for 
its accuracy, I place on record the following scrap of genealog} r which, with other 
curious matter, is appended to a MS. copy of the Beg. Honor, de Bichmond., 
written temp. Hen. VIII., now in the possession of the Bev. Canon Baine, of 
York : " Memorandum quod fuit quidam, nomine Willelmus, filius Symonis de 
Hebden in Craven, qui genuit filiam Elenam, nuptam primo Boberto de Cham- 
blayn, de quibus exiit Bobertus Chamblayn, junior, qui obiit sine prole. Mortuo 
vero prsedicto Boberto, seniori, prsedicta Elena secundo nupta fuit cuidam 
Nicholao de Ebor., fratri Willelmi Whitte (?). De quibus Nicholao et Elena 
exiit Willelmus secundus, vocatus Willelmus filius Nicholai de Ebor., qui fuit 
dominus de Hebden in anno Domini rnillesimo cc mo iiij ix vj to . Et de eodem 
Willelmus exiit dominus Willelmus de Hebden, tertius. Quo mortuo Wil 
lelmus Hebden iiij tus , miles, filius et hseres dicti domini Willelmi, militis, successi 
in hsereditatern. Qui Willelmus iiij tus fuit sub custodia et warda Adse Bavenesword, 
quondam Abbatis de Fontibus, domini sui. Qui quidem Abbas dedit eidem 
Willelmo in uxorem Isabellam filiam Willelmi de Yeland de episcopatu Dunelm. 
De isto Willelmo iiij to exiit Bicardus de Hebden filius suus et hscres. Et de 
dicto Bicardo exiit dominus Bicardus de Hebden, secundus, miles, quern Wal- 
terus Abbas de Fontibus recuperavit de Petronilla matre sua in curia domini 
Begis Edwardi secundi, anno regni ejusdem xvij. Cujus wardam et maritagium 
dictus Abbas dedit cuidam Galfrido, et ille Galfridus maritavit ipsum Bicardum 
cum filia domini Galfridi Luttrell." 

Sir Bichard de Hebden, son and heir of the last-mentioned Bichard, married 
Joan, widow of John Chaumond, esq., of Colton in the Ainsty, and daughter 
and heiress of Bichard de Wateby, bailiff of York in 1356-7, and mayor in 
1365, by whom he had two sons, Thomas, dean of the coll. church of Auckland 
and rector of Welton, etc. (Durham Wills, i., 82), and John, who succeeded to 
Hebden. Sir Bichard died about 1385, and was buried in the church of St. John 
the Evangelist, near Ouse Bridge. His widow re-married William Newsom, Esq.,

b All traces of the village of Bustardthorpe have long since disappeared. It 
stood, I believe, a little to the north of Middlethorpe, and near the road leading 
to York. In 1484, the manor of Bustardthorpe is described as extending in 
length from the village of Drynghouses on the west, as far as the river Use on 
the east : the common pastures of Knasemyer and Middilthorp forming, respec 
tively, portions of its northern and southern boundaries (City Records, lib. A, 
368). c sed, A. B. 

d Called Thorp Aton in the 31st Edward I., and now Middlethorp, which 
name it acquired, before 1316, evidently from its position, being situated between 
Bustardthorpe and Bishopthorpe.

annual rent of twenty marks (Reg. Magn. Alb., pars ii., 85 b. Fasti JEbor., i.,

changed to its present one of Bishopthorpe. iiij or car., A. B.

z One of the lost vills of the Ainsty, and the Haghendebi of Domesday Book, 
which Mr. Stapleton, in his account of the Holy Trinity Priory, York (p. 140), 
supposes to be Angram in the parish of Long Marston. The following extracts 
from the Healaugh chartulary shew this supposition to be incorrect, and that 
Haggenby was situated within the present township of Tadcaster East. About 
1230, Robert de Lelay (Leathley) granted " domui Sancti Johannis Evangelists 
de Parcho et canonicis ibidem Deo servientibus, totam villam de Hagandeby, in 
qua continentur tres carucatse terrse" (Cott. MS., Vesp., A., iv., fo. 14 Z gt;). Bar 
tholomew Turet gave to the same canons " sex bovatas terrse in territorio de 
Esedic, propinquiores campo de Haggendeby " (Ibid., fo. 18 J). By an undated 
charter the Prior and Convent of Healaugh convey to Sir Wm. de Percy " decern 
acras terrse in territorio de Haggandeby ; illas, scilicet, quoo jacent propinquiores 
aquae de Fosse versus boscum de Catherton, et inter boscum de Haggandeby et 
moram et campum de Tadcaster " (Ibid., fo. 56). By an Inquisition tatron 5th 
Edward III., it was found " quod Prior de Helagh Park et prsedecessores sui 
habuerunt piscariam in Quarfe, sicut terrse et prata de Haggandeby se buttant 
supra dictam aquam, usque ad filum aquso " (Ibid., fo. 151). 

According to the Ordnance Survey (6 inch scale, sheet 190) there is a tract of 
land in the adjoining wapentake of Barkston Ash, and about half a mile to the

* Wilstrop, a township in the parish of Kirk Haramerton, was for several 
centuries the seat of a family of the same name, of which some few notices may, 
perhaps, be considered interesting from there being reason to suppose, as I have 
shewn in the Preface, that the manuscript which forms the text of the greater 
portion of this volume, formerly belonged to one of its most distinguished mem 
bers, Sir Miles Wilstrop, the king s escheator in Yorkshire in 1470-1. Eobert 
de Wiuelstrop was living temp. Henry II. (Plump Corr., xv.). Sir Richard de 
"Wiuelestorp, his son (Cott. MS., Vesp., E., 161), was one of the witnesses to a 
charter made between 1216 and 1221 (Cott. MS., Vesp., A., iv., 85). Eobert de 
Wiverestorp was instituted to the rectory of Hutton "Wansley, 5th kal. Oct., 
1226^ on the presentation of Ei chard de Wiverestop (Rot. Archiep. G-ray, No. 
48). John, son and heir of Eobert Wilsthorpe, esq., was living in 1354. Mar 
garet de Wilsthorp was elected prioress of Nun Monkton, Nov. 13th, 1365 
(Sari. MS., 6978, fo. 2 5), and died Aug. 17th, 1376 (Ibid., fo. 7 6). Eobert 
Willesthorp, esq., was living in 1418. His brother, " Mr. Henr. Wilsthorp, in 
utroque jur. baccal.," was instituted to the vicarage of Catterick, Oct. 29th, 1430 
(Ibid., 23 ft), and occurs as rector of Brafferton in 1443 (City Records). Kathe- 
rine Wilsthorp, prioress of Arthington, died about 1484 (Reg. Rotherham, fo. 
119 a). Sir Miles Wilstrop, son and heir of Eichard, and grandson of the last- 
named Eobert, acquired the manor of Bustard thorpe in 1484 (City Records, lib. 
A., 368). He married Eleanor, daughter of Sir Guy Fairfax, of Steeton, recorder 
of York, by whom he had a son and heir, Guy, living in 1519, whose son and

[proved April 2nd, 1584] desired to be "buried in the quere of the parishe 
churche of Hammerton (Reg. Test., xxii., 512). Charles Wilstrope, "myne

was found to be his next heir, and of the age of thirty years and more (Cal. Gen., 
ii., 706). " Thomas de Pontefracto de WMlesthorp " was living Dec. 21st, 1315

probably, of the same famity, was elected M.P. for the city of York, Oct. 6th,

4 This inquisition, which has evidently been derived from a transcript of the 
original return made by Kirkby, occurs in the Rawlinson MS., and also in MS. 
Dodsworth (vol. xxvii., ff. 42 5-52 5), immediately after the abridged survey of 
this wapentake as printed in the text. Although not free from errors and omis 
sions, this inquisition " alio modo " confirms, with two or three exceptions, the 
statements contained in the abridgment, and, in addition, gives some account of 
the vills of Lofthouse, Bramhop, Neusom, Berwyk, Kypas, Wooddeshom, 
Berdesay, Collyngham, Wyke, Grigton (?), Wriglay (?), Eltofts, Thouhouse or 
Tofthouse, Creskell and Stubbs. That these two versions of the Inquest may be 
compared, I print both on the same page.

justiciar from 1269 to 1271 (Foss s Judges, iii., 143), and bailiff of Sherburn in 
1290 (Reg. Eomanus, fo. 95). In 1294 John de Reygate, junior, did homage to 
the archbishop for lands in Steeton, Micklefield, Lumby, and Milford ; and either 
he or his father was a commissioner of array in 1300 (Parl. Writs, i., 345).

* Sir Eobert de Everingham, the eldest son of Adam de Everingham, and 
grandson of the above Isabella and Eobert, died about two years after the date 
of this Inquest. By Inq. p. m., taken 15th Edward I., his son Adam was found

believe, his younger brother.

In 1731 the township of Awburn is described as having " been so washed 
away by the sea," that " there are only one messuage and two cottages " left 
therein, containing fifteen persons, six of whom were Quakers. The chapel is 
also stated to have then " become ruinous and scarce fitt for publick use," for the 
want of inhabitants within the said chapelry for many years last past to contri 
bute towards its repairs. (Reg. Blackburn, ff. 113., 114). f vj car., A. B.

a To the kindness of the Rev. Canon Raine I am indebted for a transcript of 
this valuable document, which is entered in one of the Registers belonging to the 
Dean and Chaper of Durham, in a handwriting which may be assigned to the 
commencement of the fifteenth century. There can be little doubt that this 
Inquisition is an actual copy of part of the original text of Kirkby. The head 
ing, however, does not appear to have been taken from that record, as it is not 
drawn in a form used in Kirkby s time, and there is neither day nor month given, 
nor the names of the jurors. See Langbargh wapentake, postea. 

b The Durham MS. apparently reads viii., but this, doubtless, is a clerical 
error for xiii. the date usually assigned to this Inquest. See p. 1, note c. The 
scribe has also ~by an error included Howdenshire in the wapentake. 

c Gate Helmsley is in the wapentake of Bulmer, in the North Riding. 

rf In the York MS. hitherto used as the text, and referred to in the 
following notes by the letter Y, and also in the versions distinguished by the 
letters A, B, C, D, and R, the two preceding paragraphs are omitted, and an

ritum. Dicit etiam quod quidam Henricus filius Conani, avus prsedicti 
hscredis, tempore nativitatis prsedicti hseredis manens fuit apud Leverton, et 
quod post nativitatem prsedicti hseredis venerunt nuncii ad prsedictum Hen- 
ricum filium Conani nunciantes ei de nativitate prsedicti hscredis, et supplica- 
runt ei quod ipse veniret ad prsedictum hseredem baptizandum, qui infirmitate 
detentus ibidem venire non potuit, sed mandavit quod imponerent prsedicto 
hseredi nomen suum sive mascuhis fuerit sive fcemina." William le Cerf, of 
Catherton in the Ainsty, corroborated the preceding witness, and " requisitus 
qualiter hoc scit, dicit quod Conanus pater prsedicti hseredis fuit tarn tenerse 
actatis tempore quo mater prsedicti hseredis fuit de eo prsegnans, quod dicebatur 
communiter quod ipse Conanus prolem suscitasse non potuit ; propter quod post 
nativitatem prsedicti hseredis maxima locutio fuit inde per patriam " (Cal. 
Gen., ii., 597).

2 A family of the surname of Louth (de Lutlia or Luda) was settled in York 
at an early period, and resided for several generations in a street called Brete- 
gate, in the parish of St. Mary, Walmgate. Nicholas de Brettegate was bailiff 
of York, with Thomas Palmer, before 1219 (Cott. MS., Nero, D., iii., 221 6). 
Robert de Lutha, living in 1220, had a brother John, who was bailiff about 1235 
(Ibid., 186). "Domina Elena de Bretegate " and Jeremy her son were living 
in 1250 (Dodsworth MS., ix., 78 V). The latter was a wealthy goldsmith, and, 
as "Jeremy de Luda de Bretegate," occurs as bailiff about 1263. By his 
wife Agnes he had a son, John de Luda, living in 1315, and a daughter, Ellen, 
the wife of Thomas de Tlmrkilby. Gilbert de Luda was bailiff in 1274-5, and, 
in 1278, being then a knight, was elected mayor vice Walter de Stokes, and he 
filled the same office during part of the year 1282, and again in 1284. On the 
7th kal. May, 1282, he had the archbishop s licence to erect an oratory " infra 
septa scdium tuarum de Ebor., in parochia Beatse Marise in Walmgate " (Reg. 
Wiclcwaine}. In the same year he and Sir John Sampson and other citizens of 
York lent King Edward 1040 marks (Parl. Writs, i., 826). Sir Gilbert de 
Luda, who was patron of the church of Stillingfleet (Reg. Romanus), lord of the 
manor of East Ness in Ryedale, and also possessed property in Grimsby and 
other places in the county of Lincoln (Col. Inq. p.m., i., 95), died in 1288, and 
was buried in the conventual church of the Friars Preachers, York ( Coll. Topog., 
iv., 76), leaving a son and heir, Nicholas de Luda, then aged ten years (Cal. 
Gen., i., 388), and a daughter who afterwards^married a son of Sir John de Potthou 
(Fasti Ebor., i., 338). William de Luda, who was prebendary of Ampleford at 
York 1287-1290, and afterwards bishop of Ely, may have been related to Sir 
Gilbert. After an interval of more than a century, the name of Louth again 
appears on the roll of our civic magnates. Robert de Louth occurs as chamber 
lain in 1387, and filled the office of bailiff in 1388-9. He died in 1407, leaving 
five sons, William, John, Richard, Robert, and Nicholas, of whom John was 
chamberlain in 1414, sheriff in 1424-5, M.P. in 1432, an alderman in 1433, and 
died in 1435, and Richard the last of the name who filled any of the higher 
municipal offices chamberlain in 1423, sheriff in 1425-6, and M.P. in 1434.

w Alderais, A. Aldereyes, C. A lost vill. Dr. Burton, in his account of 
Watton priory (Mon. Ebor., 412), says, " These nuns had lands in Aldergee, but 
where that place is, I know not." It may have been identical with the Alderges 
mentioned in the text, and also with Halderghes, where the same nuns had 
lands, given to them by William, son of Alexander de Santon, which are described 
(Ibid., 416) as " reaching from the ditch in Hungerhill to the boundaries of 
Etton and Gherghton, in length, and from the division of Herghes to the boun 
daries of Helesco." Gherghton is an error, doubtless, for Gerthum, now depo 
pulated, which stood about two miles W.S.W. of Etton ; while Herghes and 
Helesco will be the neighbouring hamlets of Arras and Heslesskew, each about 
one mile to the west of Gerthum.

i Eichard, son of Eichard de Bentele, had a charter of free warren in Bentele 
and Gildusdale in the 9th Edward I. (Gal. Rot. Chart., 109). 

* William de Feryby, prior of Wartre, 1364-1380, " emit dominium gillsc de 
Gildhousdale, cum omnibus pertinentiis, a domino Johanne Beritley, rectore

probably indicated by Millhouse Dale, a narrow "gill " or glen, about half a mile 
south of the village of Warter.

e Beresby, A. Borelby, B. Torowby, H. The place intended is probably 
Bordeby or Bordelby. In 1316 Geoffrey de Hotham was returned lord of " Her- 
leysey and Bordeby." And, about 1396, Thomas de Holland, duke of Surrey, 
founded a Carthusian priory within his manor of " Bordelby prope Cleaveland in 
comitatu Eboracensi, quam vocamus et vocare volumus, in futurum, domum 
Montis Gratise de Ingelby " (Mon. Angl., vi., 23). Mount Grace is about two 
miles E.S.E. of East Harlsey. 

f The Inq. p. m. of John de Blaby was taken in the 30th Edward I., when 
his daughters, Joan, wife of Adam de Horreworth, Alice, wife of Robert de Pot- 
howe, Christiana, wife of William de Snaynton, Elizabeth, wife of John de Alta 
Ripa, Cecilia, wife of Robert Gower, and Eustachia, then unmarried, were found 
to be his next heirs (Cal. Gen., ii., 601).

Sproxton, Robert de Flaynburgh, constable of Helmsley Castle, and others, 
bequeaths to his brother, William de Harum, rector of Acaster Malbis, " totum 
jus et clameum et terminum meum quod habeo, vel habui, vel habere potero, in 
manerio de Botholom (Beadlam) in Ridale," as specified " in quadam indentura

mentum meum, cum shopis, celariis, solariis, sedificiis, et omnibus aliis perti- 
nentiis suis in vico de Marketskire (Pavement) in Ebor." (Reg. Zouche, 339). 
The above-mentioned William de Harum \vas instituted to the rectory of Acaster 
Malbis Aug. 20th, 1349 (Ibid., 35), resigning it in 1358. His will has not been 
preserved ; but I find that his executor, John de Norton, clerk, by a deed dated 
Dec. 21st, 1362, conveyed the propert3 r in Marketskire to four spicers and citizens 
of York, members of the Guild of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin in Foss- 
gate, afterwards called the Confraternity and Guild of the Blessed Trinity, and 
united to the Fellowship and Mystery of Merchants and Mercers of the city of 
York. Robert de Harum, mercer, was made a freeman of York in 1352, and 
filled the office of bailiff in 1370-1. He died about 1392, leaving a son, William 
de Harum, then a monk.

tt His grandfather, Alan de "Wilton, had a charter of free warren "apud 
Wilton cum pertinentiis, scilicet Cothum et Laisingebi et Lacnebi in feodo suo,"

the Malbis pedigree. Sir Richard Malbis, of Acaster Malbis, was the head of 
the family at the date of this Inquest. On Aug. 28th, 1179 (25th Henry II.), 
Roger de Molbray and Henry de Munford released the capital messuage " et

Perhaps Northmanby is the place intended. 

f The text reads " Sochefanghetoll et tenement." corruptly. King Henry I. 
granted to the prior and canons sac, soc, thol, theam, and infangentheof, and 
also allowed them a market at Guisbrough every Monday, and a fair every year 
for three days, viz., on the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, and on the day 
before and after. He likewise granted them free warren in the demesne lands 
of Guisbrough, Ugthorpe, Bernaldby and Lounsdale (Orel s Cleveland, 187).

h The Camisedale of Domesday Book. Mr. Ord (Hist. Cleveland, 244) sup 
poses this place to be identical with Cornniondale, a township in the parish of 
Guisbrough, which, according to Graves (page 435), should more properly "be 
written Colmandale," having been " so called from the venerable Column, bishop 
of Lindisferne, who had formerly an hermitage or place of residence here." The 
canons of Guisbrough had lands in " Colmandale " (Mon. Angl., vi., 275), which 
would be included in the original donation of the founder, Robert de Brus. 
Commondale, however, can scarcely be considered "juxta Greneowe," from which 
it is distant more than six miles. In the llecapitulatio of the Domesday survey 
Camisedale is placed between Engelbi and Broctun. Ingleby-Greeuhow is only 
two miles from Broughton.

following notes by the letter S. This wapentake does not occur in any of the 
other copies of Kirkby s Inquest. There is, however, in the possession of Joseph

hundred pound lands, John de Eshton released the earldom and barony of 
Skipton" (Ibid., 226). This account is partly corroborated by the following 
extract from the Plea Eoll of the 35th Edward I. : " Thomas de Multon et 
Thomas de Lucy, qui dicunt se esse hseredes Avelinse, quondam filise Willelmi 
de Fortibus, petunt quod dominus rex respectum habeat ad jus suum, quod 
habent in maneriis de Cokermewe in com. Cumberland, Skipton in com. Ebor., 
et Eoddeston in com. Northampton. Petitio mittitur hie, etc. Et Johannes de 
Cestria, qui sequitur pro domino rege, et servientes regis dicunt pro rege quod 
in Parliamento regis tento anno iiij regni sui quidam Johannes de Eston petiit 
prsemissa, simul cum aliis terris de quibus dicta Avelina obiit seisita, etc. Qui 
quidem Johannes ilia tenements remisit domino regi pro C lib. terrse quas idem 
dominus rex eidem concessit in manerio de Thorneton prope Pykeringe, et 
Skipton in com. Ebor., etc. Ideo Johannes de Eston, consanguineus et hscres 
dicti Johannis, sum per vicecomitem, etc., antequam procedatur," etc. (Abbrev. 
Placit., 261). It appears, also, that John de Eston, in consideration of the 
manor of Appletreewick in Craven, released his claim to the estates of Aveline 
de Fortibus in England and Normandy. A copy of the acquittance is entered 
in the Liber Rubeus Feodorum in the Exchequer, fol. 249 b. J. R gt;. W. 

In 1279, John, son and heir of Sir John de Eston, granted to the prior and 
canons of Bridlington exemption from suits of court at Thorneton (Mon. Ebor., 
232). In the 9th Edward I. John de Eston had a grant from the king of a 
market and fair in Thornton juxta Pickeringe (Cat. Rot. Chart., 109). The 
Inq. p. m. of John de Eshton, alias Eston, was taken in the 29th Edward I. 
The jurors say that " Johannes filius Eoberti de Eston, quondam fratris dicti 
Johannis de Eston, est hseres propinquior tarn prsedicti Johannis de Eston quam 
prsedicti Roberti quondam fratris Johannis de Eston. Dicunt etiam quod est 
setatis viginti quirique annorum" (Cal. Gen., ii., 601). 30th Edward I., "Mand. 
magistro Ricardo de Havering, escaetori regis citra Trent , quod accepta securi- 
tate a Johanne filio et hserede Roberti de Eshton dudum defuncti, de rationabili 
relevio suo de omnibus terris et tenementis quse etiam de rege ut de honore de

" The text of the Inquest for the whole of Richmondshire is derived from 
the original Register of the Honor of Richmond, a beautiful manuscript of the 
early part of the fifteenth century, now among the Cottonian MSS. in the British 
Museum. The Register, as is well known, has already been printed by the 
learned Gale (Eegistrum Honoris de Richmond. Folio. Lond., 1722); but that 
portion of his text which comprises Kirkby s Inquest has some inaccuracies and 
omissions. These, with various readings from the A. B. and Y. MSS., will be 
found recorded in the following notes. 

b A. B. and Y. omit this title. 

c Wapentagium de Hang, A. B. Y. The Register has " Incipiunt feoda de

* Now called Cowling only, a hamlet in the township of Burrill-cum- 
Cowling, and parish of Bedale. At the date of the Domesday Survey there were 
five carucates in Borel, and four in Torneton. According to Gale (Reg. Hon. de 
Richmond, pp. 25, 240), Thornton Collynge was called Southorneton (South 
Thorneton) in the 30th Henry II. This is somewhat singular, as Cowling and 
Burrill are due north of Thornton-Watlas, and east-by-north of Thornton-

Monasticon : "Robertus Clarevaux tenet in Athowcowton, aliter East Cowton, 
duas partes decimarum de dominicis quondam "Wymari Dapiferi." I believe, 
however, that Atlowe Cowton was not identical with East Cowton. In 1316 
Edward Charles and Robert de Lasceles were certified joint lords of " Suth Couton 
et Atelou." The hamlet of Atley Hill, and Atley Hill Farm, are within the

Probably Dalton Michell was adjacent to the other two places called Dalton. 
I suppose, at some time, the township had been divided into three parts on 
the occasion of it coming to co-heiresses, and that the husband of each gave his 
name to his share. J. R. "W.

(Reg. Hon. de Eichm., 2-13). Robert, son of Robert, son of Warin de Travers, gave

" A younger son of Bobert de Clarevaux (a wealthy citizen of York, and 
grantee of lands in Croft, before 1246), by Eve, daughter of William Fairfax of 
York. He married Matilda, daughter of Adam le Cerf, alderman of York, by 
whom he had, with other issue, William, his son and heir. John de Clarevaux, 
by will dated at Stivetun (Steeton, near York), Nov. 15th, 1283, desired to be 
buried in the cemetery of All Saints in Usegate, if he died at York or Stiveton, 
but if at Croft, then to be buried there (Long staffers Hist, of Darlington). 

n de Thoma fratre suo, et Thomas, S. de Thoma de Clervas, et idem Thomas, 
A. B. Y. Sir Thomas de Clervaus, knight, Simon, John, Bobert and Peter, his 
brothers, were witnesses, with Adam le Cerf, mayor of York (who held that office 
for the last time in 1270), to an undated charter by which Nicholas de Neusom 
and Agnes, his wife, quitclaimed to Eve, late wife of Bobert de Clervaus, a mes 
suage in the parish of St. Mary in Walmgate, which formerly belonged to his 
father, Thomas le Paumer (Original charter at Merchant s Hall}. Nicholas de 
Neusom was probably the same person whose heirs held two carucates at Neusom 
in Byedale, as mentioned at p. 122, antea. Thomas Palmer was mayor of York in 
1219. Sir Thomas de Clarevaux, who was living in 1298, had an only child, 
Katherine, who died s. p. (Longstajfe s Darlington). 

In 1322 John le Breton, son and heir of Sir Philip le Breton, mortgaged 
the whole vill of Walmire to the above-mentioned William de Clarevaux and his 
sister Matilda, and subsequently released it to them (Longstaffe s Darling 
ton, Ixiv.). P A .B. and Y. omit this entry.

divisas de Esseby," and in another of the twelfth century mention is made of 
" fossatum quod est divisa inter Balderby et Eseby."

u An error, probably, for " eadem villa." The Chartulary of Fountains 
contains upwards of twenty charters relating to Sutton-Hougrave, all very early 
and before the date of Kirkby s Inquest, and in all these the place is called 
" Sutton hougrave." At the time of the Domesday Survey there were four 
carucates in Sudtone and five in Hograve.

daughter of King Edward the First, and left at his decease in 1295, a son and 
heir, Gilbert, then aged five years (Dugd. Bar., i., 215). It appears from an 
extent of the manor of Preston in Craven, which was taken in the 33rd Edw. I. 
( Cal. Gen., ii., 697), that the aforesaid earl held four carucates of land in Wykeles- 
worth (Cal. Inq. p. m., i., 202). 

Many lands scattered in different parts of England were held of " the Honor 
of Clare," which belonged to the earls of Clare, as they were often styled, until 
they became earls of Gloucester ; but, as it has been said, not after that period. 
This point is, however, not settled to my satisfaction, and this earl may have 
been called so, popularly, after the death of his father, Gilbert, 7th earl of 
Hereford, and before he was summoned to Parliament in the 1st Edward II. 
Still, as he had not paid his relief, the land could not legally be said to be held 
of him. J. R. W.

a Son and heir of Thomas Bustard, and grandson of Robert son of Osbert de 
Torp. By Inq. p. m., 30th Edward I., Robert Bustard died seised of the manor of 
Bustardthorpe, and of one carucate of land there (Cat. Inq. p. m., i., 173), John 
Bustard being his son and heir (Col. G-en., ii., 617). Sir Thomas Widdrington, 
in his MS. History of York, says, "I fynd a Deede of Davyd Lardiner w th out date 
by w ch he granted to Osbert de Thorpe and his heirs a carucate of land in Thorpe, 
being his fee, to w eh Deede there are many witnesses. And it appeareth that y e

y e sonne of Wimund and Robert Bustard, before Godfrey de Lucy and Josceline, 
archdecon of Chechester, and W m Vavasour, A 33 H. 2" (York Corporation 
Papers, ii., 839). " Osbertus de Torp, pater Roberti Bustard," gave land in 
Littelgate, York, to the canons of Malton (Cott. MS. Claud. D. xi., 198).

m Sir John Sampson, knight, mayor of York in 1279, 1281-83, 1285, 1299 
and 1300, and knight of the shire in 1298, was the son of Alan Sampson, alias 
"Alanus filius Sampsonis," who was bailiff of York in 1253-4. By an undated 
charter, witnessed by Sir Simon de Kime, Sir Richard Waleys, Sir Robert Ugh 
tred, Sir Mauger le Vavasur, and John, son of Sir Richard Malebis, Richard, son 
of Philip de Fauconbergh, granted to Sir John Sampson of York, knight, and to 
Mary, his wife, " totum manerium meum de South wod in Apelton in Aynsty " 
(Dodstvortk MS., clix., fo. 204). On the 6th id. Sept., 1309, Sir John Sampson 
had licence to have an oratory within his manor of Appleton (Reg. Greenfield, 
pars i., 74 b). He died not long after, having had issue four sons, John, Henry, 
Thomas, and William, and, I believe, a daughter Constance, who married Sir 
John Sutton, of Sutton in Holderness. Of the sons, John appears to have died 
s. p. during the lifetime of his father ; Thomas became a canon of York, and was 
much employed in state affairs (Fasti Ebor., i., 430) ; William was living in 1348 
(Reg. Zoucli) ; and Henry, the eldest surviving son, was certified joint lord of 
Appleton, with Walter de Fauconbergh, in 1316, and was living in 1338 (Rot. 
Scot., i., 528). "Johannes Sampson, filius et hseres Henrici Sampson," by will 
dated "apud Appelton, in manerio meo," August 29th, 1369 [pr. Oct. 31st, 1369], 
desires to be buried within the conventual church of St. John the Evangelist at 
Nun Appleton. He left a son Robert, and a widow Emmeria (Reg. Thoresby, 
88 b). Probably Maurice, son of Alan Sampson, who was instituted to the rectory 
of Edlington in 1252 (S. TorJcs., i. 94), and Matthew Sampson, bailiff of York in 
1288-9, were brothers of the above Sir John Sampson.

a The Knights Fees in the wapentakes of Langbargh, Pickering, Howden- 
shire, Holderness, Dickering, Harthill, and Euckrose are printed from the original 
Subsidy E-olls which are kept among the Miscellaneous Records of the Queen s 
llemembrancer in the Exchequer. The rolls for Yorkshire are as yet unarranged, 
and consequently inaccessible to the general enquirer, but through the kind 
offices of Mr. Walbran of Ripon, who was the first to point them out as useful 
for this work, I obtained permission to transcribe these valuable documents, as 
well as others which will be found at a subsequent page. I have not given the 
particular references to these rolls, as the present class-marks are only provisional. 
The Inquisitions for the above-mentioned wapentakes form a roll of eight 
membranes. 

6 The portions of the text within brackets are taken from a duplicate roll of 
one membrane, comprising the wapentakes of Langbargh and Pickering only.

a The wapentake of Howdeushire is not co-extensive with the liberty, and 
of the twenty places hereinafter mentioned only two Ellerker (a detached

compared with the " Libertas de Houeden " of the Nomina Villarum, which will 
be found at a subsequent page, and also with Kirkby s Inquest for the wapen- 
takes of Howdenshire and Ouse and Derwent. 

* Holme-on-Spalding-Moor. 

r Robert de Percy, parson of Gisburgh, son of Henry de Percy, gave half a 
carucate of land in Holm to the nuns of Appleton ; and Sibilla de Percy, with 
her corpse, gave them thirteen oxgangs of land here, which was confirmed by 
Henry III. in 1240 (Burton s Hon. Elor., 277). 

d Eichard de Averinges had a charter of free warren in Skipwith and Bolthorpe 
in the 32nd Edward I. (Col. Rot. Chart., 135). 

e Probably this is North Burton, commonly called Cherry Burton, in the 
wapentake of Harthill. For this suggestion I am indebted to Mr. Burton of 
Turnham Hall, near Selby, who has also obligingly favoured me with an extract 
from a fine, attributed to the 1st of King John, from which it appears that 
Philip, bishop of Durham, granted to Eichard de Averinges " ij car. in Scippwic, 
iiij car. in Bolethorp, [et] j car. in Norb ton," to be held by military service as 
half a knight s fee. The following entry in Domesday Book (ed. 1862, p. 19) no 
doubt relates to this place : " In Burton est soca de Welletone de j carucata ad 
geldum. Nigellus tenuit, sed modo dimittit." Welton belonged to the bishops 
of Durham.

" Gilbert de Aton had a grant of free warren in Bardelby, Holme juxta 
Seleby, Wellome and Knapton in the 2nd Edward II. (Cal. Rot. Chart., 141). 

h Neuton and Gerthum have been previously mentioned. Gerthum stood 
about one mile S.AV. of the present village of Gardham, which doubtless occu 
pies the site of the " New Town near Gerthum." 

Son of Adam de Osgoteby (Burton s Mon. E~bor., 109). In the 30th 
Edward I. Eobert de Osgoteby had a charter of free warren and licence to hold a 
market and fair within his manor of Osgodby (Cal. Rot. Chart., 133). Sir Adam 
de Osgodby, Keeper of the Rolls of Chancery, was probably his son. 

J In the 32nd Edward I., his son, Miles de Stapleton, the first baron, had a 
charter of free warren in South Duffield, of which town his grandson, Nicholas 
de Stapleton, w r as certified joint lord, with the bishop of Durham, in 1316. 

* Ralph, son of Ealph de Babthorpe, gave land in Brakenholm and Babthorpe 
to the canons of Drax, which Eobert, son and heir of Ealph de Babthorpe, con 
firmed in 1313 (Burton s Mon. Elor., 100). 

1 Ealph, son of Ealph de Babthorpe, when his brother Martin took the habit 
and became a canon at Drax, gave to that priory an annual rent of 4s. 4d. pay 
able out of his land at Eisceby ; and afterwards gave 10s. per annum more out of 
ten oxgangs of land in the same territory (Burton s Mon. JSbor., 110). 

" Probably some forgotten place near the river. Cornesandes is not men 
tioned in Kirkby s Inquest or the Nomina Villarum.

c In the 30th Edward I. inquisitions " de statu Willelmi Berchaude, et de 
terris suis," were taken in the counties of York and Cumberland. The Yorkshire 
jurors say that " Willelmus Berchaunde est idiota continue a nativitate sua, neo 
compos mentis suse, nee sufficiens est ad regimen terrarum suarum." To this 
the men of Cumberland add, " super sacramentum suum, quod Johannes de 
Danethorp, qui fuit idiota a tempore nativitatis suse, fuit avunculus prsedicti 
AYillelmi, cujus Johannis idem Willelmus filius Alicise, unius sororum prsedicti 
Johannis, et Johanna filia Margaretse, alterius sororum dicti Johannis, quse est 
plense setatis et discreta, sunt propinquiores hseredes " (Cal. Gen., ii., 636). 

d 21st Edward I. " lExtenta terra in manu regis existentis ratione fatuitatis 
JoJiannis de Danthorpp : et de parentela et gente dicti Johannis. Dictus Johannes 
de Danthorpp fuit filius et hseres domini Johannis de Danthorpp, militis, et idem 
Johannes fuit filius domini Alani de Danthorpp, militis. Et mater dicti Johannis 
fuit filia domini Robert! de Carlaton, militis" (Cal. Gen., ii., 477). The Inq.

(Cal. Gen., ii., 554). Isabella Ughtred, his widow, re-married Brian de Burdon

z This entry probably refers to Sunthorp, where Thomas de Sunthorp held 
one carucate of land at the time of Kirkby s Inquest. In a note on the 76th 
page, I have supposed this place to have been identical with Southorpe, which 
stood on the south side of Hornsea Mere (Paulson s Holderness, i., 340. Ord. 
Survey, 6 inch scale, sheet 197). Sunthorp, however, appears to have been one 
of the lost towns on the Humber, and its site is very clearly indicated in the 
following extract from the Meaux chartulary : " De situ ergo dictse villse de 
Ravenser Odd, vestigium minime reperitur, quse quidem villa de parochia ecclesia 
de Esington existens quasi 4 milliaria distabat, inter quas villas de Esington et 
Odd villa de Kilnesey, villaque de Sunthorp, et manerium de Aid Ravenser in

" In 1308 Henry de Percy obtained a licence to fortify his castle at Leckon- 
field (Oliver s Beverley, 473). 

w The vill of Raventhorp has disappeared. It stood about one mile south of 
Leckonfield. 

* Sir Henry Theys, or Tyes, was lord of the manor of Chilton, co. Wilts 
(Parl. Writs, i., 865). The writ of " diem clausit" taken upon his death bears 
date 8th Oct., 1st Edward II. His son and heir, Henry Tyes, who was aged 22, 
or thereabouts, at his father s death (Ibid., ii., 1509), died seised of the manor of 
Bracken in the 1st Edward III. (Cal. Inq. p. m., ii., 3). 

* Of this family, which sprung from the village of Bolton, near Yapham, a 
few particulars have already been given (pp. 109, 112). Robert de Bolton was 
certified lord of Bolton, and also of Appleton in Ryedale, in 1316. Thomas de 
Bolton, son of Robert, brother and heir of John de Bolton, held the manor of 
Hutton-upon-Derwent in 1300 and 1316, and also possessed property at Sandburn 
and Carlton in the vicinity of York. It is not improbable that he was the

York (Eeg. Melton, 157). He held the office of mayor from 1322 to 1333, and 
again from 1338 to 1341. In 1342 John de Langton, son of the last-mentioned 
Nicholas, did homage to archbishop Zouche for lands in Huddleston (Reg. Zouche, 
300 a). He was bailiff in 1346-7, and mayor from 1352 to 1363. In 1373 the

c In the 31st Edward I., Sir John By god, of Stockton, obtained a charter 
from the king confirming the manor of Settrington to him and the heirs of his 
body (Cat. Rot. Chart., 134). It appears from his Inq. p. m., which was taken in 
the 33rd Edward I., that he held " manerium de Seteryngton cum pertinentiis 
de domino rege in capite, quod manerium Rogerus le Bygod, Comes Norfolc et 
Mareschallus Anglise, dedit per chartam suam prsefato Johanni le Bygod de 
Stoketon et Isabellse uxori suse." His son Ralph, then aged upwards of twenty 
years, was his next heir (Cat. Gen., ii., 690).

honorabilis domini Eoberti comitis de Kingston super Hull, 10 May, 1632." 

6 In the 2nd volume of the Memorials of Fountains Abbey (p. 35), Mr. 
"Walbran gives the following account of this Aid : " On the 1st June, 18th 
Edward I., 1290, the Parliament granted an aid of 40s. from each knight s fee 
in the kingdom for the marriage of the king s eldest daughter. When his sister 
was married to the king of Scotland, her father had received only 2 marks from 
each fee, but on this occasion it was conceded quod dominus rex percipiat et 
habeat de quolibet feodo militari quadraginta solidos, hac vice, plenarie et 
integre : ita fcamen quod alias non cedat eis in prsejudicium vel consuetudinem 
(Rotul. Parl., i., 25. Parl. Writs, i., 20). The aid was not, however, collected 
until the king by letters patent, dated 7th November, 30th Edward I., after 
reciting the grant, and that the collection had been hitherto graciously suspended 
for the greater ease of the commonalty, empowered the sheriffs and others to 
collect the same (Rotul. Parl., i., 266)." 

One moiety of this aid was to be paid into the Exchequer on the octaves of 
the Purification, and the other moiety on the morrow of the Ascension (Parl. 
Writs, i., 132). By the above-mentioned letters patent, the sheriff, Alexander 
de Cave and Geoffrey de Hotham were appointed collectors in the county of York 
(Ibid., 133). Of the two last-named persons some notices have alread} r been 
given (pp. 259, 264). 

c That portion of the roll which comprises the wapentake of Staincliffe is so 
much injured by damp that I did not attempt to transcribe it. And this was the 
less necessary, as the " Inquisitio do feodis militum," printed at page 189, is of 
the same date, and contains similar information.

c Son of Reiner le Fleming. In the 21st Edward I. he was called to shew by 
what right he claimed to have gallows and infangtheof at Wath, when he pleaded 
that all his ancestors had enjoyed that privilege (S. YorJcs., ii., 65. Plac. de Quo 
War., 203). William le Fleming died in 1307, leaving Reiner, or Reginald, his 
son and heir, then between thirty and forty years of age (Cal. Gen., ii., 735). 

d Wortley, in the parish of Tankersley (S. Yorks., ii., 307). 

e In the 21st Edward I. William de Cantilupe and Emma, his wife, were 
summoned to shew by what right they claimed to have free warren in all their 
demesne lands in "Aston, Kereby, Ravenesthorp, Bolteby and Trilleby," and 
infangtheof and gallows in the same towns (Plac. de Quo War., 225). William 
de Cantilupe died about the 2nd Edward II. (Abbrev. Rot. Orig., i., 161), and 
shortly afterwards the lands of Aston were claimed by T. de Outhenby, or de 
Auuby, and William de Ergham, as the representatives, the one of Christian, 
the other of Joan, sisters of Osbert de Arches, while Edmund Mansel claimed a 
third part, as son and heir of Alice, another sister. He brought his action, and 
the cause came to a hearing in the 5th Edward II., when the jury found that 
Alice was a bastard, and the plaintiff in mercy (S. Yorks., ii., 161). In the 
Knights Fees in the wapentake of Strafforth (temp. Edw. II.), mentioned at 
page 230, note h, it is stated that " Wiilelmus de Ergham et Thomas Anesley 
(sic) ten unum feodum de (sic) Aston de feodo [de Luterell]." In the Nomina 
Villarum, however, Thomas de Aunby is returned sole lord of Aston in 1316, 
and, as Thomas de Outhenby, he occurs as patron of that rectory in 1321 (Reg. 
Melton, 150 J).

/ Sir Geoffrey Luterell, son and heir of Sir Eobert, was 21 years old on the 
1st of June, 25th Edward I. (Cal. Gen., ii., 536). He married Agnes, daughter 
of Sir Eichard Sutton, of Sutton, co. Notts., and died in 1345 (Stcvpleton s Trinity 
Priory, 160). 

z In 1314 John de Haringel was a commissioner of Array in the wapentake 
of Strafforth (Parl. Writs, ii., 974). 

* He is called Danyell at page 231. Peter de Eotherfield, who held the vill 
of Hickleton at the date of Kirkby s Inquest (p. 4), had a son William, who left 
four daughters his co-heirs, of whom one married William d Eyvile, who is said 
by Dodsworth to have held Hickleton (S. Yorks., ii., 133). 

" Egidius, films personse de Hekelton," married another of the daughters 
and co-heirs of William de Eotherfield (S. Tories., ii., 133).

THE 

NOMINA YILLAEUM 



FOE 



YORKSHIRE. 

9TH EDWARD II. 



THE 

NOMINA VILLARUM FOR YORKSHIRE 

9TH EDWARD II. 



THE Nomina Villarum have already been printed with the Parlia 
mentary Writs (vol. ii., div., iii.), edited by Sir Francis Palgrave, 
and published by the Record Commissioners in 1834. I have 
explained in the Preface why it was considered advisable to re 
print in the present volume that portion of the document which 
relates to the county of York. The following account of the 
record itself is derived from Sir Francis Palgrave s valuable 
work. 

The " Nomina Villarum " is a document consisting of the 
returns made to writs tested at Clipston, 5th March, 9th Edward 
II., severally addressed to all the sheriffs throughout England, 
stating that the king wished to be certified how many and what 
hundreds and wapentakes there were in the sheriffs bailiwick ; 
and how many and what cities, boroughs, and townships there 
were in each such hundred or wapentake, and who were the 
lords thereof; and the sheriff was therefore commanded dili 
gently to inform himself of the premises, so that, at his next 
proffer at the Exchequer, he might give full information to the 
treasurer and barons thereupon ; and the sheriff, for this reason, 
was to appear in person at the proffer, unless he should have 
licence to be absent : these returns being required in relation to 
the military levies granted in the Parliament at Lincoln, in the 
quinzaine of St. Hilary, 9th Edward II., when it was directed 
that one man-at-arms should be raised from every township. 

It will be observed that the writs require the sheriff to 
attend in person to give information ; and it is therefore possible 
that, when the sheriffs appeared before the barons, the returns 
were drawn up from the materials which they had obtained. 
Being of considerable length, the returns assumed the shape of 



300 THE NOMINA VILLARUM FOR YORKSHIRE. 

rolls, as appears from such of the originals as are yet extant, 
which consist of the writs and returns for the counties of 
Devon, Middlesex, Salop and Stafford, and Southampton, pre 
served amongst the records on the side of the Lord Treasurer s 
Remembrancer. 

In the 1st Henry VII. it was noticed that these rolls or 
returns, in consequence of the very frequent searches made upon 
them, being, as the record says, in daily use, had become so 
blind and frayed that they could be scarcely read or understood : 
by which it was apprehended that great detriment would ensue 
to the king and the crown. Upon inspection accordingly of 
the rolls, by the barons, it was ordered that the same should be 
transcribed in quires, and made up and engrossed in a book, to 
remain for ever in the Exchequer. 

For this purpose John Snede, writer, was appointed, and 
admitted by the barons of the Exchequer, and he was to receive 
three shillings and fourpence per quire for his labour. When 
completed, the book contained twenty quires and one half, for 
which he was paid at the stipulated rate. This book was de 
posited with the Lord Treasurer s Remembrancer, but it has 
long ago disappeared. Transcripts, more or less imperfect and 
corrupt exist, however, in different repositories. 

To this account of the "Nomina Villarum" Sir Francis 
Palgrave adds the following extract from a communication 
received from Mr. Hunter, the historian of South Yorkshire, 
respecting the application of the document : " The value to 
topography of the Nomina Villarum lies chiefly in this, that we 
find in it direct evidence of the persons who held the smaller 
subdivisions of the great tenancies at a particular period. With 
out its assistance, I know not how this information is to be 
arrived at, in any direct manner, where the correlative record 
called Kirkby s Inquest (which belongs to the preceding reign) 
is not to be found, and where no information of the place is to 
be gathered from the Testa de Nevil or the Hundred Rolls. 
One fixed period of this kind is of great importance, inasmuch 
as a single name is an indication of the line in which the lord 
ship is passing, and may very often be the means of guiding an 
inquirer to a series of lords before and after the date of the 
record itself; and the determining in whom the possession lay 
is one of the chief points in the history of the rural parishes of 
England."

a This title is also taken from the A. MS. The heading in Harleian MS. 
6281 is simply " Comitatus Ebor." 

6 Except where otherwise stated, this text is derived from the Harleian MS. 
6281, in the British Museum, which is thus described in the catalogue (vol. iii., 
352) : " A Folio, containing the Cities, Boroughs, Villages and Hundreds, their 
Names, and who were the Lords of every Manor throughout all the Counties of 
England from the Year of our Lord 1316 to 1559, entitled A transcript of the 
book called Nomina Villarum kept in the Office of the Treasurer s Remembrancer 
in the Exchequer." This transcript appears to have been made in the early part 
of the reign of Queen Elizabeth. It is supposed to be the best text of the 
Nomina Villarum that is now known to exist. Judging, however, by the returns 
for the county of York, its nomenclature is very corrupt, and it also contains 
several errors and omissions. Save in the occasional permutation of the letters 
n, u, and v, the text, now for the first time printed in extenso, is a faithful tran 
script of this MS., so far, at least, as I was able to decipher the handwriting, 
which is extremely perplexing. The Harleian text has been collated with MSS. 
A. and F. (see pp. 1, 124, antea), but the more important variations only are 
recorded in the notes, where will also be found such matter corrective of the text 
as I have been able to collect from Kirkby s Inquest, the Feoda Militum, and 
other sources. The modern names of nearly all the places mentioned in the 
Nomina Villarum are given in the Table incorporated with the Index Locorum.

of age of " Lucia, filia et hseres Robert! de Twenge, et consanguinea et lucres 
Marinaduci de Twenge, defunctoruni," was taken March 17th, 1294-5. The 
jurors say that " prsedicta Lucy a nata fuit apud Kylton in Clyveland die Veneris

Dominica proxima sequente baptizata in capella Sancti Petri ejusdem villse per

first, Sir William le Latimer, junior, from whom she was divorced about 1312 
(Dugd. Bar., ii., 37), secondly, Robert de Everingham, and, lastly, Sir Bar 
tholomew de Fanacourt. Some curious particulars relating to this lady, who

{ An error for Moreby. In 1318 Robert de Moreby, lord of Stillingfleet, 
"maritus domirise Margaretge, relictse domini Johannis de Gray, militis, de- 
functi," did homage to the archbishop for lands held of him in Sculcotes (Reg. 
Melton, 593 a). Margaret, relict of Sir John Gray, of Rotherfield, who died in 
the 5th Edward II., leaving John his son and heir, was the youngest daughter 
of William de Odingsells, of Marstock, co. Warwick, and one of the four co 
heiresses of her brother Edmund. She was 18 years old in the 23rd Edward I. 
(Gal. Gen., ii., 511). J Willerby, in the parish of Kirk Ella. 

* Newton stood a short distance south of Cottingham. About 1322, Thomas, 
lord Wake, of Lyddel, began to build a religious house on his manor of Cottingham, 
which he furnished with canons of the order of St. Augustine. But because a 
perpetual title could not be made to this site (Mon. Angl., vi., 519), the pope 
granted a licence, which was confirmed by archbishop Melton on the 3rd March, 
1325-6, to translate the monastery "quod vocatur Hautenprise de Cotingham ad 
alhmi locum " (Reg. Melton, 568 a). This other place was Newton, which there 
upon changed its name to that of Hawtemprice (Mon. Angl., vi., 520).

n The Gilbertine priory of St. Andrew, York. 

The Grays were a wealthy and distinguished family in York. On Sept. 
14th, 1308, "Willelmus Gra et Johannes Gra de Ebor., qui in obsequium regis 
in comitiva Johannis filii Marmaduci profecturi sunt ad partes Scotise," had 
letters of protection which were to remain in force until the following Easter 
(Rotuli Scotia, i., 57). John le Graa was elected M.P. for York 8th Aug., 1311. 
In 1333 Thomas, son of William Gra, of Skelton, near York, granted to Robert, 
son of Hamo de Harum, and Alice his wife, for their joint lives, certain tene 
ments in Marketskire, York, which he had of the gift of Mr. Thomas de Gra 
(Original Charter at Merchants Hall}. William Graa was bailiff in 1345-6, 
mayor in 1367, and eleven times M.P. between 1347 and 1372. Before 1403, 
John, son of Richard Graa, of York, founded a chantry in the church of St. 
Mary, Castlegate, for the soul of William Graa, of which Sir John Gra, knight, 
of Ingleby in the diocese of Lincoln, was patron in 1426 (Reg. Kemp, 307). 
Thomas Graa, son of the above-mentioned William, was mayor in 1375, lord 
mayor in 1398, and eight times M.P. between 1376 and 1399. He died in 1105, 
leaving three sons, John, Robert, and Thomas, of whom Robert was chamberlain 
in 1431, sheriff in 1437-8, and died in office June 22nd. Thomas Gray, gold 
smith, master of the archiepiscopal mint " w l in y e Palace Garth," was chamberlain 
in 1482, sheriff in 1488-9, M.P. in 1495, and lord mayor in 1497. In 1514, 
having fallen into decay, he resigned his gown, and the Council granted him a 
yearly relief. 

r See page 220, note/. 

The Prior of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem. 

r Probably Mr. John Gower, S.T.P., rector of Wheldrake, who died in 1338 
(Reg. Melton, 2645). On Jan. 14th, 1315, he had a commission to preach at 
Northallerton on Monday, the feast of S.S. Fabian and Sebastian, before the 
army on its way to Scotland (Fasti Ebor., i., 385). Walter Gower, chamberlain 
of York in 1305, and bailiff in 1306-7, and Simon Gower, chamberlain in 1324, 
and bailiff in 1325-6, were, I believe, members of the Stittenham family.

that see in 1296, and died seised of the manor of Knapton in 1322 ( Cal. Inq. 
p. m., i., 300). 

* John de Belkethorp was probably the son and heir of William, son of 
Thomas de Marston, who held the manors of Berghthorp and Marston in 1278 
(pp. 28, 221, antea). About 12 10, the father of this Thomas de Marston, Sir 
William, son of Thomas de Belkerthorpe, knight, gave lands in Gouthorpe to 
the church of St. Peter of York (Mon. Angl., vi., 1189). Belthorpe House, 
where there are some remains of a moat, is one mile east of Gouthorpe, and in 
the parish of Bishop Wilton.

222, antea. In the 16th Edward II., Henry, brother and heir of Robert, son of 
William le Vavasor, granted the manor of Bilton to Thomas Davyll and Isabella, 
his wife, and the heirs of their bodies lawfully begotten (Cott. MS., Vesp. A., 
iv., 169 a). 

/ "Whihale and Estak are Wighill and Esedike. " Hemelak," which has not 
been previously mentioned, is probably an error for Hagenby, now depopulated 
(page 26, antea, note z). In the 4th Edward II., the Prior of Healaugh had a 
grant of free warren in "Wighale, Hagenby and Esdyke" (Gal. Rot. Chart., 
143). 

" Ranulph de Blankmonstre, alias de Albo Monasterio, held Wighale and 
Calveton in the 32nd Edward I. (Cal. Rot. Chart., 136). See page 119, antea. 

A Isabella de Beaumont., widow of John de Vescy. 

Some account of this family has been given at page 218. 

J Sir William Malbis died about 1365, and was succeeded by his younger son, 
Sir Walter Malbis (York Corporation Papers, ii., 988). The eldest son, Sir 
Thomas Malbis, died about 1360, leaving a daughter and heiress, Elizabeth, who 
became the wife of Adam de Bekwith (Ibid., 996). 

h Sir Gilbert Stapleton, second son of Sir Miles Stapleton, of Carleton, mar 
ried Agnes (or Maud), eldest daughter and co-heir of Sir Brian Fitz Alan of 
Bedale. Catherine, the younger daughter, married Sir John Gray of Rotherfiekl, 
who died seised of a moiety of the manor of Askham Brian in 1359 (Cal. Inq.

1 Before 1244, Walter Gray, archbishop of York, granted lands in "Dreng- 
huses" to his brother Robert (Drake s Elorac., append., Ixiv), whose grandson, 
Robert de Gray, held here at the date of Kirkby s Inquest. Sir John Gray, of 
llotherfield, grandson of Robert, had a charter of free warren in Dringhouse in 
the 4th Edward III. (Cal. Rot. Chart., 163), and died seised of that manor in 
1359 (Cal. Inq. p. m., ii., 213).

* The A. and F. MSS. read : " Thorenour. Simon de la Roche, "Walterus

The Poitevins were lords of Headingley, where William de Patefyn held half a 
knight s fee in the 31st Edward I. (p. 207, antea), but they do not appear to have 
had any interest in Thornor. In the 4th Edward II. Simon de la Roche obtained 
a charter for a market and fair at Thornor (Cal. Sot. Chart.., 142). The text 
should probably stand thus : 

THOEENOUK Simon de la Roche. 

HEDDYNGLEY Walterus de Heddyngley et Thomas Peytevyn.

in the south choir of Batley church" (Loidis and Elmete, 236). I believe, how 
ever, that " Hopp " is an error for " Oxenhoppe." By charter dated at Batley, 
18th October, 1334, and witnessed by Sir John de Eland, Sir Brian de Thornkill, 
Adam de Hoperton, John de Calverley, and others, "Adam de Oxenhoppe, dominus 
de Bateley," having erected " sumptions suis " an oratory in honour of the Virgin 
Mary, " navi ecclesise de Bateley contiguo," founded therein a chantry " pro 
anima mea et anima Marjorise, uxoris mese, et pro animabus Eoberti patris et 
Matildis matris mese, Willelmi de Coppeley, Johannis, Willelmi, Thomsc fratrum, 
et animabus domini Johannis de Thornhill, Briani filii ejus, Thomsc de Thornton

" From a Feodary s Book (temp. Eliz.} in the possession of J. R. Walbran, 
Esq., of Ripon. 

* This account of the Knights Fees in Holderness appears from internal 
evidence to have been compiled during the latter part of the reign of Henry III. 
It contains particulars relating to several places not named in Kirkby s Inquest. 

c Mr. Poulson, in his History of Holderness (vol. i., p. 153), sa,ys, " The 
wapentake is divided into four parts, or districts, according to the titles of the 
bailiffs, viz., that of Moijs, Tunstall, Helpston, and Dunsley. It has been gene 
rally supposed that the bailiffs take their titles from the names of places, but 
from ancient entries in the books of the Court it seems probable that these titles 
are taken from the names of four bailiffs, who served in these offices, called Peter 
Moijs, Richard Tunstall, Richard Helpston, and Thomas Duncely." 

d 24th June, 1280. Sir Robert de Scures, knight, grants to Robert Hildyard 
and his heirs the homage and services which Peter de Gousle did for his manor of 
Little Colden (Paulson s Holderness, i., 369). Robert Hildyard married Joan, 
daughter and heiress of Sir Robert de Scures, of Long Riston (Ibid., i., 341). 

p Bernard de Araynes. His son, Thomas Dareins, held here at the date of 
Kirkby s Inquest (page 75, antea).

c Aike, four miles north of Beverley. Mr. Poulson, in his History of Holder-

to the see of York. He says (vol. i., p. 477), " By an Inquisition of knights 
fees, taken in the reign of Edward I., it is found that Roger de Woodhall held 
in Asche and Molescroft the fourth part of a knight s fee of the archbishop of 
York." According to Domesday Book the archbishop held two carucates in Asch 
(Eske), and six bovates in Ach (Aike). In Kirkby s Inquest (p. 79), Roger de 
la Wudhall is returned as holding six bovates in Ayk. In 1343, Simon de 
Ileslarton did homage to the archbishop for the manor of Wodehalle, and for six 
bovates in Ake, which he held " de hscreditate Johannec, filisc et hscredis Willelmi

y The places intended are Tetford and South Ormesby, in Hill hundred. At 
the date of the Domesday Survey the archbishop held three carucates in Tesforde, 
and half a carucate in Ormesbi (Domesday Book, ed. 1783, page 139). Ilylle

~ Perhaps this is Worlaby, an extra-parochial hamlet about one mile north

(Domesday Book, ed. 1783, page ~\3fy.Kille wap. "Willelmus de Perci tenuit

Alworth (Alford ?), Stouyeby (Toutheby), Sutton et Aleby," which were held 
" per servitium feodi unius milit. " (Reg. Newark, 17 t). In 1300, Sir Thomas 
de Riggesby did homage " pro ten. in Riggesby, Lissington, Stalingburgh, et 
alibi " (Reg. Cartridge, 103 b), and again in 1318 (Reg. Melton, 595 6). In 1326, 
" Eadulphus de Eiggesby, films et hpcres domini Thomso de Eiggesby," did 
homage "pro feodo et di. unius milit. in Eiggesby et Lissington, cum suis mem- 
bris Bleby (Aleby ?), Walle, Houtou, Aleford, Toutheby, Sutton, Swaby, Amby, 
Sauthorp (Sausthorpe), et Eoldeston juxta Suwell" (Ibid.). In 1332, " Thomas 
de Eyggesby, filius et hseres Eadulphi de Ryggesby," rendered homage " pro

warth ij car. et iij bov. Et idem archiepiscopus dedit illas Osberto de Panton

e In 1299, " Johannes filius Hugonis de Paunton fecit homagium pro ten. 
de Paunton, juxta Wrageby, et West Barkeworth, et respondet pro feodo j 
milit." (Reg, Newark, 18 a). In 1301, the archbishop received the homage of 
John de Paunton " pro ten. in Paunton et Weste Barkeword " (Reg. Cartridge, 
103 t). The Inq. p. m. of John de Paunton, " qui tenuit de rege, archiepiscopatu 
Ebor. vacante," was taken in the 33rd Edward I., William de Paunton, " frater 
pr^dicti Johannis," being his next heir (Col. Gen., ii., 680). " Willelmus, 
filius (sic) Johannis de Paunton," did homage for the same lands in 1306 (Reg. 
Greenfield, ii., 221 a), and, as " dominus Willelmus de Paunton, miles," in 
1318 (Reg. Melton, 594 b). In 1334, " Willelmus filius Willelmi de Paunton, 
juxta Wraggeby," rendered homage " pro terris et ten. in Paunton et Barkworth 
et alibi in com. Line. " (Ibid., 595 b), and in 1337 " Robertus de Paunton, frater 
et hscres Willelmi de Paunton," did homage " pro maneriis de Paunton et 
Barkesworth in Lyndesay" (Ibid.). In 1344, the archbishop received the 
homage of Hugh de Cressy " pro iij tia parte j feodi in Paunton et West Barkworth 
in com. Line. " (Reg. Zouclie, 300 d). 

f Hille tvap. Eobertus de Hesela tenet in Teford feodum unius milit. de 
feodo archiepiscopi Ebor., quod Hugo de Nevill tenet de eo, et archiepiscopus de 
domino rege in capite (Testa de Nevill, 336 b). See page 393, note y. 

s An error for Teford, now called Tetford. In 1298, " dominus Philippus 
de Teford fecit homagium pro ten. in Teford et Ormesby " (Reg. NeivarJc, 16 b), 
and in 1301 " pro ten. in Theford et Hornesby," which he held " per feod. j 
milit. " (Reg. Cartridge, 103 b). On August 4th, 1303, " venit dominus Thomas 
de Brayboef, miles, ostendens se paratum facere homagium domino Thomsc, Ebor. 
archiepiscopo, pro proparte sua tenementorum quse fuerunt domini Philippi de 
Teford in Teford " (Ibid.). The Templars held certain tenements in Wetherby 
of Sir Philip de Tefurth (antea, page 204, note e}. The archbishop received 
the homage of William de Ouneby""pro ten. in Teford et Ormesby " in 1303 
(Reg. Cartridge, 103 t), and that of Thomas de Ouneby, or Ounesby, for one 
knight s fee in " Tetford et Ormesby in com. Line.," in 1318 (Reg. Melton, 595 1). 
Perhaps he was the same person as Thomas de Outhenby, or Aunby, who held 
Aston in 1316 (antea, pages 281 n, 358). In 1332, " dominus Thomas, rector 
ecclesise de Thetford, Lync. dioc.," did homage " pro j mesuagio et j bov. in villa 
de Thetford " (Reg. Melton, 595 b). In 1351, the archbishop received the homage 
of Sir William de Totheby, knight, " pro terris ct ten. in villis de Tetford et 
Eiggesby in com. Line. " (Reg. Zouclie, 300 b).

Benin g worth," which he held " pro xx ma parte feodi, reddendo per annum ixs. " 
(Reg. Greenfield, ii., 222 a). In 1319, "Willelmus filius Thomse de Benyng- 
worth " rendered homage " pro xx ma parte feodi j milit. in Benyngworth " (Reg 
Melton, 5955). 

J This entry is evidently corrupt. Willelmus filius Petri tenet [de archi- 
episcopo Ebor.] unum feod. milit. in Billingey et Walecote de veteri feoffamento 
(Testa de Nevill, 306 b). Archiepiscopus Ebor. habet in Billingeie et Walecote

quod Matilda de Gynai tenet in dote (Ibid., 341 a). Sir Thomas de Eos, brother 
of Sir William de Eos, junior, of Ingmanthorpe, did homage for the manor of 
Dousby in 1298 (Reg. Neivark, 17 b), in 1300 (Reg. Corbridge, 103 b), in 1309

take). Hscres Oliveri Leyncurt (Deyncurt) habet feodum unius militis in Hane

* An account of the rents and services due to the archbishops from their 
tenants within the liberty of Bipon. This document, which is without date, 
occurs in the York MS., and also in the book marked B. iv., 24 (fol. 136 b), in 
the Public Record Office, immediately after the " Feoda militum libertatis de 
Bipon," of the 31st Edward I., and is followed by Kirkby s Inquest for the 
wapentake of Staincliffe, taken in the 13th Edward I. 

Studley Royal. " Probably Copt Hewick. 

n The township of Aismunderby-with-Bondgate adjoins Bipon on the south. 

A John de Clotherham was living in the 23rd Edward I. ( J. B. AY.) Boger 
de Clotherom held Clotherom in 1316, and another John de Clotherum occurs in 
1328 (Reg. Melton, 427 a). 

P Thomas de Burton held Ingerthorpe in the 31st Edward I., and Nicholas 
de Burton in the 9th Edward II. Nicholas, son of Nicholas de Burton, did 
homage for this manor in 1339. 

9 In the 31st Edward I., John, son of William de Bipon, held Markington 
for the fourth part of a knight s fee (page 212, antea). In 1323, William, son 
and heir of John de Merkyngton, rendered homage " pro terris et tenementis in 
Merkyngton prope Bipon." 

William de Wyvill, of Slingsby, was living in the 13th Edward I. In 
1298, John de Wyvill did homage for lands in " Nunewyk et Nunewyk-Thornes." 
By Inq. p. m., 29th Edward I., he died seised (inter alia) of the manor of 
Slingsby, and of lands in Nun wick -Thornes (Cal. Inq. p. m., i., 167), being 
succeeded by his son, William de Wyvill, who, in 1321, being then a knight, 
rendered homage "pro terris et ten. in Nunwyk et Nunwyk-Thornes," as did 
also his son and heir, John de Wyvill, in 1335.
