83 Probably William the Poictevin, elder brother of Roger, of Altofts, near Normanton, ancestor of the Peytefins, of that place. Before 1100, he gave two garbs in Skellow to St. Clement's chapel in Pontefract castle. Thomas le Poitevin held property in Headingley in 1199; William le Poitevin was living in 1207; and in 1284-5, William Petevin held one knight's fee in Headingley of the Earl of Lincoln (Kirkby's Inquest, ed.

85 The same Herveus, perhaps, who was the tenant, under Odo, Bishop of Bayeux, of four manors in Oxfordshire, which, after the Bishop's bauishment, became part of the Honour of Pontefract. In the time of King Henry III., these manors were held by William de Scalebroc, and formed part of the Honour. His descendants or successors, styled "Pincerna," or "le Boteler," were the ancestors, it is supposed, of the Butlers, Marquesses of Ormonde, in the peerage of Ireland.

"Hanepol" is now called HamphallStubbs, between which place and Hampole (see Honepol," under the "Land of Roger de Busli." postea), where there are the remains of a priory, a supposed Roman road, or British way, crosses "The Beck" at "Stubbs-bridge." See Journal, xiii., p. 307, and accompanying map.

So The second half mill is reckoned with Hampole in the fee of Roger de Busli, postea. It is curious that Ilbert de Laci's half of Hampole is called "Hamphall" Stubbs, while that belonging to Roger de Busli retains the name of "Hampole."-R. H.

This Robert was probably the father of two sons, Gerard de Ramosville, who gave half the tithes of Kirk Smeaton, before 1088, to the chapel of St. Clement in

Pontefract castle, and Ilbert de Ramosville, who gave two garbs from his demesne in Campsall. This family occurs subsequently as de Rameville or Rainville, and probably came from Ranville, near Caen (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, v., p. 324).

88 Before 1088, Ralph (Pincerna) gave two garbs, and the tithe of the mill at Thorpe, to St. Clement's chapel, in Pontefract castle (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, v., p. 320). Mr. Holmes adds: -"Ralph Pincerna was not the same as Ralph son of Edelina, for the two are named separately in the History of the Foundation of St. Clements. A pedigree from this Ralph is given in the Journal, xiii., p. 139.

91 Gilbert son of Dama gave two garbs to St. Clement's chapel in Pontefract castle before 1090. He was probably the same Gilbert who held the manor of Thorpe Stapleton, in the parish of Whitkirk, under Ilbert de Laci (see page 18, antea). These two manors were afterwards in the possession of a family who took the name of Stapleton, but were distinct from the Wighill Stapyltons. In 1166, Robert de Stapleton held two knight's fees of Henry de Laci, and, in 1255, another Robert had a charter of free-warren in his demesnes in this place (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, v., 305).

In 1284-5, the heirs of Robert de Stapylton held two carucates in

"Thorp sub Rothwelhaght," of the Honour of Pontefract, by military ser vice (Kirkby's Ing., ed. Surt. Soc., p. 34). Rothwell Hague, or Haye (par. Whitkirk), was an ancient park of the Lacies. In the 31st Ed. I., the collectors of the Aid granted to the King received 6s. (part of 88.)" de hær' de Thorp Stapelton, pro ij car. terræ in Thorp Stapelton" (Ibid., p. 288).

93 Umfred de Villeio gave, before 1100, two garbs from the harvest, yearly, in Snydal and Newton to the chapel of St. Clement in Pontefract castle. He came, doubtless, from one of the places called Villy, in the department of Calvados, in which Lassy is also situated.

94 The same Malger, I believe, who held several manors under William de Perci, amongst them Hazlewood, which became the principal seat of the Vavasours. Mauger le Vavasur, a benefactor to Sawley abbey, who died in 1168, was very probably his grandson, and ancestor of William le Vavasour, a justice itinerant in the reign of Henry II., from whose younger son, Malger, the Vavasours of Askwith and Denton were descended.

95 See note 88, supra.

96 Ernulf gave two garbs in Purston and two in Rowden to St. Clement's chapel before 1100.

97 The church of All Saints, Featherston, was given by Hugh de Laval to Nostel priory, temp. Henry I. There was a chantry chapel at Preston Jaglin, dedicated to St. John the Baptist.

98 Gerbodo, probably a Fleming, gave two-thirds of the tithes of one carucate in Fryston to St. Clement's chapel before 1100. He was, perhaps, the same Gerbod who gave three bovates in Warmfield to Nostel priory; and he may have

been ancestor of William fitz Gerbode and Robert, his brother, who gave land in Braithwell to Roche abbey (Yorks. Arch. and Top. Journal, v., 305). Gerbodo also held Crofton under Ilbert (vide postea, page 31).

99 The church of St. Andrew at Ferry Fryston was given to the Vicars Choral of York by Sir Henry Vavasour. There was formerly a chapel of ease at Wheldale.

100 Perhaps he was the same Hamelin, who, when the Survey was taken, had one mansion in York, in the city ditch (page 323, vol. xiii.). The name occurs also in 66 The Claims," where it is stated that Hamelin detained until now, by force, two carucates and five bovates of land in Middleton-upon-the Wolds, the soke of which belonged to Driffield. Mr. Holmes adds In Pontefract, Fryston Mill was called Hamelin Mill, as Stump Cross (one of the boundary crosses between Pontefract and Ferrybridge, see Journal, xiii., 561) was styled Ralph's Cross from Ralph Grammaticus at Knottingley.
