Grant by Albreda Reryng and Alice Toppynger to Alex. son of William de Kiueton of a toft in the town of Tatevick, between the toft of the Abbot of Roche on the North and the toft of the Prior of Wirkeop on the South, abutting at the West end on the highway and on the east on the croft, with 4 roods of land whereof 2 roods lie in the east field between the land of Wm. son of Gregory on both sides, abutting at the north end on the king's highway and at the south end on the headland (forera) of Robt. Grym, 1 rood between the land of Thorald the Cobbler (Sutor) on the east and the land of the Abbot of Roche on the West, abutting as the previous rood, and 1 rood between the land of William son of Gregory on the east and the land of Robert Grym on the

78 Todwick near Rotherham. See Hunter's S, Yorks. ii., 158. In D. B. Tatewic, and so spelt in a deed given above as late as 1316. The St. Pauls had lands here which came to them from Cassandra, the youngest of the three d.'s and co-heirs of Symon, son of Thorn, married to William de S. Paul. This is from a descent of the manor drawn up about 1300, and copied by Dodsworth from the original among the muniments of Roche Abbey, in S. Mary's Tower at York (Mon. Angl. I., 838). Symon is made lord of the manor before the time of William the Bastard! William de S. Paul by Cassandra, had Nicholas, whose son, Gilbert, left a daughter and heiress, Alice, wife of Gregory de Tadewyke. They had William who took the name of S. Paul, and was living when this document was drawn up during some law-suit. These persons occur in the deeds given above. Wastenays, Edward in the descent, had bought the manor of Sir John Horbiry. William de Tortmayns, grandson of Matilda, Symon's second d., sold it to

Sir John's father, Sir Ralph. The will of William de S. Paul of Tottewyke, dated 4 May, 1391, was proved at York 13 June following. It is probably the Inventory and distribution of his effects given above. Although the family became extinct here, branches subsisted and corrupted the name to Sanpaul. John St. Paul of Campsall, 1585 (Visit. p. 307), had either forgotten his arms, or could not satisfy the heralds. Yet in S. Giles Chapel at Pontefract they are given as a lion rampant to his father (ib., p. 472). The St. Pauls', however, seem to have borne, like Kirkstall Abbey, 3 swords in pale, points to base; the seal above given used by William appears by the legend to have belonged to a Henry. The sword of course is associated with S. Paul, being the emblem of the Apostle. Paulett bore 3 swords in pile. Hunter observes that the church at Todwick is dedicated to S. Paul, but this may have been a Norman family who brought the name over with them.

Keueton, Hugh son of William, Thos. Banting, Nic. son of William, of
