William II de Lancaster1,2

#15315, d. circa 1184

Major Life Events

     William II de Lancaster married Hawise de Stuteville.3 William died circa 1184.2

Children of William

Narrative

     William died 1 Richard I (1184) leaving his wife and only daughter Hawise, who was married by King Richard to Gilbert, son of Roger FitzReinfrid. Hawise de Stouteville, the widow, married secondly Hugh de Morvill, a brother of Richard de Morvill who had married Avice, William II's sister. The fee held by the family of de Lancaster, within the county of Lancaster, was of abnormal size, consisting of twenty-four carucates, in addition to twelve and one half carucates held in demesne, or granted in franklamoign.2

     There was a grant from William de Lancaster II to Gilbert, his son, of a moiety of the manor of Sockbridge, witnessed by his wife Helewise, Elias de Stiveton, Will. de Loncastre. Was this an illegitimate son or was he referring to his son-in-law Gilbert FitzReinfrid? The latter makes sense as the Sockbridge manor descended via the illegimate son of Gilbert FitzReinfrid's heir, William III.2 My analysis indicates that the latter does not make sense as William's daughter was not given in marriage to Gilbert FitzReinfrid until after the death of William. Her marriage took place in 1189.

     William de Lancaster II granted land in Tover to Augustine de Heaton, and this charter was before 1199 confirmed by Gilbert FitzReinfrid to Roger, Augustine's son.4

     1170-80, William de Lancastre II grants to Gervase de Ainecurt £15 worth of land for the service of ¾ fee in Natland and Bothelford [extending] to the brook of the gallows and to the bounds of Hoton and Stainton, with Sizaritherge, Winderg and the other Winderg, the grantor's part of Lander and that part of Socabret which Waldeve held, all which he gave for £ 10s. worth of land; and for 50s. worth of land in arrears he delivered to the said Gervase the service of Hacatorp in pledge for 50s., until he perfected teh said £15 worth of land. Witnesses: Norman the sewer, Jordan the grantor's son, Gilbert the grantor's son Grunebald, Robert de Heriez, Anselm, Orm son of Tore, Roger de Crof, Roger son of [Adam, Orm son of Bernu-]lf, Robert Mustel, William parson of Warton John the clerk, Richard the Chamberlain, W[illiam Pultyngton]; orig. D. at Sizergh.5

     1184, the men of William de Lancaster of Kendale render 10 m. for some plea by the hands of Ranulf de Glanville.6

     William de Lancaster II gave Levens to his seneschal, Norman de Hieland, otherwise de Redman, shortly before his death in 1184. Henry de Redman, son of Norman, succeeded his father before 1188, in which year he made an agreement with the English owner of the vill, Ketel son of Uchtred, whereby Ketel gave to Henry half the demesne land of the vill and in return Henry granted that Ketel should hold the other moiety of Henry by the same service that Henry was required to pay the chief lord for the whole vill, namely 8s. yearly. Ketel was teh ancestor of a long line of owners of Nether Levens, who bore the name of the township.7

     1184-89, William Marshal (Marecallus) confirms to Gervase de Eincurt his tenements which William de Lancastre gave him as his charter testifies, "to hold of the said William Marshal and his heirs in fee and inheritance." Witnesses: Thomas son of Gospatrick, Gilbert de Lancastre, Roger de Croft, Roger son of Adam, Henry son of Norman, Geoffrey de Prestun, Geoffrey son of Robert, William Waler[an], Matthew Gernet, William de Kettovill, Richard son of Alard, William de Befill, Gamel the for[ester]; roig. D. at Sizergh.5
