To sum

U13 briefly, I

think

we may conclude

that

there were two ratifications of deeds purporting to be

foundation charters, one in 1119, or at the latest in 1124, and the other in 1129, as recorded by Walter of

Hemingburgh

;

that about this latter there was

much

htigation during

of the founder's grandson,

but that as the

The generosity of the founder enabled the Canons make a start under very favourable circumstances.

The

position

at the end of the witnesses in No. 14, of the names of two such powerful prelates as the Bishops of

Lincoln

and Salisbury, who were amongst the most important personages of their time, needs explanation. No. 15, as given in tlie Chartulary, has no

witness to

but in a confirmation

of

These place-names referred to tracts of land, which, being for the most part uncultivated and not appurtenaut to any particular hous3, must have had very ill-defined boundaries. Ernald'spath, all to the east of wliich was reserved, would appear to have been a line from about the corner of the Guisbrough boundarv near Waterfall to the place now called Hob-on-the-Hill on tlie same boundary. This forins a triangular piece of ground running into Skelton, a very likely place to make an enclosure {haia) or cover for the garae coming from his park at Skclton. Scheldcrscoh is Skelderskew.

Considering the great power and wealth of the Bishops of Lincoln and Sahsbury, the fact of their being placed last amon<?st the witnesses throws some doubt on the authenticity of the charter. It is probably genuine, the names of these two Prelates being added to enliance the dignity of the document.

pedigree of the somewhat family of Westiby is far from clear. In No. 130 Peter Westiby speaks of liis father Nicholas, *

Tlie

obscure

which

him with

Peter, son of Nicholas de Gysebmrne, of No. 128. identifies

There we leam he had two uncles on his father's side, Alan and Mauger. He died without issue, and his nephew Roger, son of his sister and heir !Matilda, releases all right in his aunt [amita) Cristiana's gift to Guisbrough (No. 204). The relationship

between the

oft

named

and Cristiana and

Peter Westiby

Emma de Westiby

(Nos

131,

Mabilla,

132),

or

daughters

and Randulf uncertain. ExCristiana of

Westiby (No. 167) is cept in Nos. 131 and 132 the

name

is

always Westiby, and not de Westiby. Although there was a place in Redcar

Westeby (No. 1002), and there a Westonby in Egton parish, I do not think the name owes its called

is still

origin to either place, but belongs to a class which includes many similar names, such as Estiby, Northiby, Uppiby, &c., which in the East Riding assume the form Westinby, Estinby, &c.

considerable number of deeds by members of this family will be found in this Chartulary amongst the Coatham deeds. Boon-works, so called because like the Benevolences paid to the king, they could not be withheld. They were distinguished from the week-w^ork due from the tenant to his lord, because they were special century.

A

works done at request (' ad precem,' or at ben '). Both week-work and boon-work were incidents of servile tenure. It may be not unnecessary to remark that a freeman might, and '

often did, hold lands subject to servile tenure. These works were different forms of agricultural labour, as ploughing, reaping, hedging, &c., which the tenant had to do for his lord, the amount of both being regulated by custom. '^

1 Shixbum in the East Riding. In the Knights' Fees in Yorkshire 31 Edward i. (1302-3), William de Shirebm-ue is named as holding f our-

teen bovates there (Kirkbv's Inquest, 266). 2

William de Middelesbm-g, 1281-

1320. 3 The foUowing extract from the Yorkshire Assize RoUs of 1276 (N.

â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

1. 3 1. m. 4) seems worthy of insertion here, on account of the curious information it affords of the practical working of the feudal system. The power of the superior lord to tender to his tenant, to whom he ^vas guardian, a suitable marriage, or as it \vas called one without disparagement, often caused much hardship. In this case Nicholas de IMeynell of ^Miorlton, the superior lord, tried to pass off on his ward Robert, son of

Robert Guer, a natural daughter

of

his uncle John de Stote-v-ille as a suitable match. This tender Robertwas justified in refusing, on account of the illegitimacy of the lady in question but his refusal of a daughter of ;

William de Roseles, one of MejTieirs knights, to whom his wardship and man-iage had been sold, was not so fortunate in

its

issue.

The

jury, to

.

.

whom

the question was referred, that the marriage was one befitting Guer'srank, and condemned him to pay the penalty pro\-ided by the Statute of Merton, 20 Hen, m., 0. vi, namel}-, twice the value of the marriage, which in this case amounted to eighty marcs, or nearly four years rent. The occurrence of their names so close together as witnesses to the above charter, would lead one to fancy that Guer changed his mind, and did after all marry a daughter of Roseles, rather than to pay the fine imposed by the statute " Assisa venit recognitura, si Robertus Guer, filius Roberti Guer, fuit seisitus in dominico suo ut de feodo, de duobus

From another undated charter about land in the same place by Robert, son of WilHam Bruys of Kirkby Misperton, it appears that Alexander de Bergh's father was called Bernard de Bergh

xcv. 87''). Hc was alive in 1339 when Sir William de Briiys granted him his land in Haterberge (Ibid. lxxvi. 151). The manor of IBergh is situated in Rydale, and is now known as Great Barugh. Bernard de Bergh held land there at the time of Kirkby's inquest. This property had already been given in 1323 (No. 210). The Inquisition was probably taken quite as much with the object of condoning breaches of the law of mortmain already committed as of getting a licence to acquire land under the non obstante clause in the samo statute.

confirmation of their liberties from their chief lord, Peter de Brus, were doubtless the same as those whereby the Barons of England succeeded in their struggle with King John, namely money. Henry ii. it appears had taken the vill and forest of Danby in Cleveland from Adam de Brus, Peter's father, giving him in exchange the ^ills of Bardsey, Collingham, and Rigton in the West Riding. This exchange seems to have suited the Bruses ill, so in 1200 Peter de Brus, to get the \i\\ and forest of Danby back, including no doubt the castle, then standing at Castleton, was content not only to give up Bardsey and the other two places, but also to pay the king the this

enormous sum of one thousand pounds sterling, finding sureties to the amount of seven hundred marcs (Rotuli de Oblatis, 109). Amongst the sureties were Robert de Ros and Eustace de Vesci in two hundred marcs apiece, who occur as witnesses below. In the next year he had managed to pay ÂŁ'.300 (Rotulus Cancellarii, 301), and in 1205 the king let him ofE four hundred marcs of the then debt (Rot. Litt. Claus., We may well imagine that 22, 38b). Brus was not very particular as to the means by which he wrung the money wanted out of his vassals. Suitors in the Court of the Wapontake were no longer judged by their

downbyGlanville (Lib.

xii. c. 25),

that no one was bound to answer in the court of his lord conceming his freehold (tcnementiim) without the king's writ. By this charter Peter de Brus agrees to reform all these grievances, his knights and free tenants in Langbaurgh are to be subject only to the judgment (consideratio) of the Wapontake, and to pay reasonable sums as caution

Later on tlie Faucunbergs assumed the arms of Bruce, as appears l)y the Roll published by Sir Harris Nicolas, where " ^lonsire de Faconberg port d'argent une lyon rampant d'asure," and his eldest son, IMonsire Walter, bore the same arms, differenced by a bend (basfo)i) gobony or and gules (Nicolas's Roll of Arms of

the Reign of

In

(1333-4) Sir John de Fauconberg bore the lion thus differenced at a tournament at Dunstable

(Coll.

In the

same Roll published by Xicolas (p. ]Monsire de Facomberge de 42), Sa bore, Ermine three hons passant gules. In another Roll, the reference to which I have mislaid, Sir Henry Fauconberg bore, " de argent ij barres mascle de sable." In addition to

these bearings, Henn-, son of William de Fauconberg, bore a fesse between three crescents (Dodsworth MSS. vii.

which arms were borne by Henry, son of William de Katefosse

257)

;

(Ibid. 254^), who is probably the same person, as Catfoss formed part of the Fauconberg property. In Nicolas's Roll of the Reign of Henry iii. (p. 12)

^Marmaduke de Twcnge bore, Argent a fessc gules between three popinjays vert. In Edward iii.'s Roll (p. 27) the arms are tlie samc. It is very remarkable tliat Richard le Fitz !Marmaduke bore the .same arms. except that the popinjays were white, apparently i^laced on the fcsse. The similarity of arms and names, both verv uncommon. argucs a near con-

nection between the families. Both T)uveng and Fitz Marmaduke bearthe same arms and tinctures in theRolls printed in the Arclueologia. He died Nov. 1, 1304, when Walter, his son and heir, was found to 1)0 forty years old and upwards (Walt. de Hemingburgh, ii. 240).
