Narrative

     Robert apparently inherited Barton and Witherslake from his father Roger. In 1283, "Robert de Lancastre holds Barton and Witherslak, and render yearly one niais hawk (speruarium sorum) and 1d; they are worth 301."1

     It is unclear whether this Robert was the son of Walter de Lancaster or is the Robert who was the son of Roger de Lancaster, son of Gilbert FitzReinfrid. I have repeated this Robert and his son John under Roger de Lancaster and continued his line here.

     Recorded in 1338, "Annora late wife of John de Lancaster held for her life with her husband the manor of Ridale of the grant of John de Lancaster of Holgill, remainder to Roger de Lancaster for life, reversion to John de Lancaster of Holgill, who survives; the said Roger died 10 years ago; the manor is held of the king in chief for 1/4 fee; the reversion of the manor belongs to John de Lancaster of Holgill, who is 30 years of age."6

     On 31 August 1340, "Memorandum of Assize held at Carlisle before Robert Parvyng and other justices, that John de Lancaster, kt., Richard his son, William de Lancaster and Alice his wife, William de Denton, chaplain, William Brunnyng, chaplain, William Bisshep, of Kirkeby, chaplain, Adam de Appleby, chaplain, Robert de Merton, chaplain unjustly dispossessed Elena, wife of Alexander de Fetherstrahalgh of her freehold in Skirwith (case found against her)."6
