  From Thoresby Society Vol. 58 p. 48
  A number of abbots (of Kirkstall) were members of local families. Hugh de Grimston and John de Bridesale who had both been monks of Kirkstall before becoming abbots were almost certainly connected with local families of some importance and linked by marriage (Coucher Book pp. 137-8). The de Bridesale or Birdsall family had been lords of the Manor of Clifford at least since 1166 and were benefactors of the Abbey. John  de Bridesale accompanied Hugh de Grimston on his journey to Edward I in Gascony in 1287. During John's abbacy in 1313 a William de Bridesale granted land in Bramley to the Abbey having obtained leave to alienate a mortmain.
 
  From the MS. Chronicle of Kirkstall
 
  "To his reverend brethren the prior and convent of the Monastery of Kirkstall, John, styled Abbot of the same wishes health and grace, and that they may labour more earnestly after the things which concern religion, peace and charity.
  Beloved, we have written this letter in haste from Canterbury, knowing that an account of the success of our journey will be pleasing to you.
  In the first place, our dear brother, who was present, will inform you that on the morrow of St. Laurence we were met by letters from the king, in a very threatening style; that we were apprised of robbers who laid wait for us in the woods under a rock ; and that we were bound, under the penalty of forfeiting all our goods, to abide the king's pleasure. However  having been at length dismissed from his presence with honour, we proceeded on our way ; and, notwithstanding a delay in London, arrived at Canterbury on Monday evening, ourselves, our servants, and horses being all well. We were not without hope, therefore, that our feeble beginnings will be followed by better fortune. On Wednesday morning, the wind blowing fair, we put the horses on board a ship ......
  For the time to come we commend you, dear brethren, to GOD, and our bodily safety to your prayers.  But especially pray for the salvation of our soul; for we are not greatly solicitous if this earthy part of us be delivered into the hand of the wicked one, so that the spirit be saved in the day of the Lord, which we hope for through your intercessions ; we should wish, if it be the will of GOD, to be committed to the earth by your hands, wherever you shall dispose.
  But know assuredly that, if we return, whosoever appears to have been most humble in conversation and active in business during our absence shall receive an ample measure of grace and recompence from God, and shall every ... be more affectionately regarded by us.
  We entreat and enjoin brother R. Eckisley to prepare himself for the duty of preaching on the Nativity of our Lord, unless we return in the meantime, that so great a festival may not pass without a sermon, a thing which hath never yet happened, nor, by the grace of GOD, ever shall do.
  We wrote unto certain persons, 'abstain from every appearance of evil, and avoid it beforehand, whatever is or may be pretended in its behalf.'
  GOD shall give you the knowledge of these things.
  We adjure you, brethren, by the bowels of mercy in Jesus Christ, that, if ye hear of our departure, ye will pray for us faithfully, remembering the labours and distresses which we endured in the beginning of our creation, and of which ye are now reaping the fruits in peace.
  Ye know, dearly beloved, that worldly occupations, such as we have long been entangled in for your sakes, are not without        danger to the soul. But we derive great -hopes from your compassion, seeing that we aim at no earthly advantage, nor consume the revenues of the monastery without cause.
        Salute our dear friends :...................
       especia1!y our dearest companion,* to whom we would have some one interpret this letter.  When he hears it he will scarcely be able to refrain from tears, which he shed abundantly at our parting. We commend our poor mother to your compassion. - Salute one another with an holy kiss.
  The salutation of me, John, your minister, such as I am, and studying to do everything in my power for your advantage and honour. We commend you again and again to GOD and the B. V.
  Written at Canterbury, with many tears"
  The above was sent fom Dover while the Abbot was on a journey to the Continent partly on the King's business, but also perhaps on his way to the General Chapter. (This may have been in 1312 when the Abbot was granted royal protection perhaps to attend the General Chapter).

Robert, Compte de Mortain
  ROBERT, COMTE DE MORTAIN AND EARL OF
  CORNWALL
  The Conqueror and His Companions by J.R. Planche, Somerset Herald. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1874.
  Robert, Comte de Mortain and Earl of Cornwall, the exact date of whose birth is as much a question as that of Odo, who, if his age at the time of his death be correctly stated, must have been the elder of the two; but, whether or not, there was probably not more than a year or so's difference between them. Our first knowledge of him is obained from the fact of his being made Comte de Mortain in the Cotentin (not to be confounded with Mortagne in La Manche), by his uterine brother, Duke William, on the banishment of William the Warling, son of Malger, and grandson of Duke Richard the First, on suspicion of treason - for it really amounted to nothing more - the wily tyrant availing himself of an opportunity to advance, under a pretence of justice, another of his mother's family. This was just previous to Duke William's visit to England in 1051, and Robert, I conclude, might at that period have been nearly of full age, being born, as I take it, circa 1031.
  In 1054, on the invasion of Normandy by Henry, King of France, we find him joining the army of William, with his knights and retainers; but he was not in the battle of Mortemer, being in the Duke's division, and consequently had no opportunity of distinguishing himself.
  We next hear of him at the council called by William on receiving the tidings of Harold's assumption of the crown of England, and subsequently at the great meeting at Lillebonne, when he promised to contribute to the invading fleet no less than one hundred and twenty vessels, according to the curious Latin record published by Taylor; [A Roberto de Mortoleio, c. et xx.] an enormous number, but the size has to be taken into consideration, and the list may be held to include boats of every description.
  In the great battle of Senlac, Wace tells us he never went far from the Duke, and commanded the chivalry of the Cotentin, but he is not conspicuously delineated in that portion of the Bayeux Tapestry. His share of the spoil is said to have been the greatest. He was created Earl of Cornwall, in which county alone he possessed two hundred and forty-eight manors at the time of the compilation of Domesday; fifty-four in Sussex, besides the borough of Pevensey; seventy-five in Devonshire, forty-nine in Dorsetshire, twenty-nine in Buckinghamshire, thirteen in Hertfordshire, ten in Suffolk, ninety-nine in Northumberland, one hundred and ninety-six in Yorkshire, and twenty-four in other counties, amounting altogether to seven hundred and ninety-seven, with two castles in his county of Cornwall, one at Dunhever and the other af Tremeton.
  In 1069, the Earl of Cornwall and Robert Comte d'Eu were left by King William in Lindsey to watch the Danes who had landed at the mouth of the Humber and invested York, but alarmed at the approach of the Royal forces retreated to the opposite shore, and took shelter in the fens. Availing themselves of the opportunity afforded them by a festival at which the disaffected inhabitants liad invited the invaders to be present, the two Earls fell upon them unexpectedly, and pursued them with great slaughter to their very ships. We hear little of him from that period till we find him beside the death-bed of the elder William, supplicating for the pardon and release of his brother Odo, which the King, with great reluctance, at length conceded to the urgent and incessant entreaties of the Earl and his friends. "My brother Odo," said the dying monarch, " is a man not to be trusted-ambitious, given to fleshly desires, and of enormous cruelty. There is no doubt that if he is released he will disturb the whole country, and be the ruin of thousands." The petitioners pledging themselves for the Bishop's reformation, the King yielded from mere weariness, observing, " It is against my own judgment that I permit my brother to be liberated, for be assured that he will cause the death or the grievous injury of many persons."
  He was too true a prophet. His son Rufus had scarcely ascended the throne when the pestilent priest commenced, as we have seen, to sow dissensions amongst his subjects, and succeeded in involving the generous brother, to whom he was indebted for his freedom, in a conspiracy to depose the nephew who had restored him the possessions he had deservedly forfeited. Imposing on the duller nature, and working on the affection of Robert, he beguiled him into a rash attempt to hold his Castle of Pevensey against the King, which failing might have cost the Earl his life or liberty, and the confiscation of all his estates. The Red King, however, made a judicious distinction between his uncles, banishing for ever the arch-traitor Odo, and accepting the submission of Robert, allowed him to return to his allegiance. This event occurred in 1088, and after that time his name disappears from the pages of our historians.
  Brooke, in his Catalogue of Nobility, says, without citing any earlier writers, " This Robert was slain in Northumberland in the year 1087." Vincent, in his "Discoverie," points out the error of the date, but is silent respecting the account of the death, which he certainly would not have been if he could have contradicted it. Dugdale was equally ignorant on the subject. "When he departed this world, I do not find," he tell us; "but if he lived after King William Rufus so fatally lost his life by the glance of an arrow in New Forest from the bow of Walter Tyrrell, then was it," he continues, "unto him that this strange apparition happened, which I shall here speak of;" and then he relates the story told by Matthew Paris, how that, at the very hour the King was killed, the Earl of Cornwall, being hunting in a wood at some distance, and left alone by his attendants, was met by a huge black goat bearing Rufus all black and naked with a wound in his breast. The Earl adjured the goat by the Holy Trinity to tell him whom it was he carried, and was answered, "I am carrying your King to judgment. Yea, that tyrant William Rufus, for I am an evil spirit, and the revenger of his malice which he bore to the Church of God, and it was I that did cause his slaughter, the proto-martyr of England, St. Alban, commanding me so-to-do, who complained to God of him for his grievous oppressions in this Isle of Britain which he first hallowed - all which the Earl related soon after to his followers." What a pity the goat did not reveal the name of the individual he had caused to do the slaughter!
  This absurd story, one of the many circulated at the time of the King's death, and tolerably well proving a guilty foreknowledge, is only quoted here as bearing on the question of the decease of Robert Earl of Cornwall, for the narrator does not distinguish the Earl by his baptismal name, and therefore leaves it uncertain whether he is alluding to Robert or to his son William, who had undoubtedly succeeded to the earldom of Mortain and Cornwall before 1103, as in that year he had left England for Normandy, and was in open rebellion against Henry I, whom he hated from childhood, and by whom he was consequently deprived of his titles and estates for treason.
  In the absence at present of any reliable information, I am inclined to believe that Robert's death preceded that of his brother Odo, as the monk of Malmesbury tells us that, "not content with the two earldoms of Mortain in Normandy and Cornwall in England, his son William demanded from King Henry the earldom of Kent which his uncle Odo had held, and petulantly declared that he would not put on his robe or mantle till the inheritance he derived from his uncle should be restored to him," a terrible threat, which must have alarmed the King amazingly.
  Without presuming to fix on an exact date, I consider then that Robert Earl of Cornwall died between the years 1089 and 1097; and if there be any foundation whatever for Brooke's statement, that he was slain in Northumberland, it is possible that he was there with his nephew King William on the occasion of Robert de Mowbray's rebellion in 1095. It is not the less remarkable, however, that the death of so important and wealthy a personage should have occurred without its being recorded by a single historian.
  Robert Earl of Cornwall had taken to wife previously to the Conquest, but at what period we are ignorant, Matilda, daughter of Roger de Montgomeri, Earl of Shrewsbury, and by her left one son, William, of whom I have just spoken, and three daughters - Agnes, first offered in marriage to William de Grentmesnil, but afterwards the wife of Andre de Vitry, Denise, married in 1078 to Guy, 3rd Sire de La Val, of whom more hereafter; and Emma, wife of William Count of Toulouse.
  Of the three sons of Herleve, William, Odo, and Robert, the latter alone appears to have possessed some kindly feeling. He is described by William of Malmesbury as a man of a heavy, sluggish disposition, but no foul crimes are laid to his charge. He had evidently the courage of his race, and his conduct as a commander is unassociated with any act of cruelty. Scandal has not been busy with his name as a husband. No discords are known to have disturbed his domestic felicity. With the exception of the one occasion when ensnared by the artful representations of Odo, he had joined in the rebellion against Rufus, no trace is seen of his having been involved in any of the revolts and conspiracies which were continually convulsing both Normandy and England, and his fidelity to the elder William was never for an instant shaken. We have seen him beside the death-bed of that William, pleading urgently for the pardon of their worthless brother, and pledging himself generously but rashly to his reformation; and the distinction made by the second William between his two uncles upon their surrender at Pevensey, shows that he believed in the contrition of Robert, and thoroughly estimated the amount of dependence he could place upon the word or oath of the faithless, treacherous, turbulent Odo.
  He was a great benefactor to the Abbey of Grestain in Normandy, which had been founded by bis father, Herluin de Conteville, and his appropriation of the possessions which belonged to the Priory of St. Petroc at Bodmin, in Cornwall, founded by King Ethelstan, appears to be justified by the fact that they had been taken from the Priory, and were illegally enjoyed by canons secular. By a charter to the monks of St. Michael in Peril of the Sea, on the coast of Normandy, giving to them and their successors in pure alms for ever the monastery of St. Michael on the Mount in Cornwall, and which must have been executed before 1083, as the name of Queen Matilda occurs amongst the witnesses, we learn that the standard of that saint had been carried before him in battle, and may fairly conclude that it was in the decisive one at Senlac. This charter appears to have been subsequently confirmed by him in 1085 at Pevensey. [Mr. Freeman appears to have mistaken this date for the original one of the Charter, and consequently demurs to its authenticity; but it is clear from the names of the witnesses that it must have been executed in Normandy, and the note appended to it in the Monasticon refers merely to a confirmation some years afterwards, -- "Firmata atque roboratur est haec carta anno millesimo octagesimo quinto apud Pevensel," in Robert's own castle.]
  Meagre as are the materials which we are enabled at present to scrape together for a memoir of Robert Earl of Cornwall, his character stands out in honorable distinction from those of his brothers, neither surrounded by the "guilty glory" of the King, nor blackened by the baseness of the Bishop.

Mount Ferrant Castle Birdsall
  After the rebellion that followed the death of the Conqueror, in 1088, the lands that had belonged to the Count of Mortain were
  forfeited. These included 7 curacates in another Leavening. The Count's land in the area went to Nigel Fossard, who had been a
  subtenant of the Count. In the late 11th or 12th Centuries, he built a castle at Mount Ferrant on a headland on the escarpment of
  Birdsall Brow. Theses early castles were built of wood, some later being rebuilt in stone.
  There are several legends, but history tells a different story. It was Henry II who ordered the destruction of Mount Ferrant, for William's
  support of the rebellion of 1174 and that it was Robert de Stuteville, Sheriff of Yorkshire who carried out those orders and sent the
  wood to Meaux Abbey.
  On his journeys through England and Wales between 1535 and 1543, John Leland, the Tudor antiquary noted that:
  "Mount Ferraunt castelle stood 2 miles from Malton, in the lordship and paroche of Byredeshaul. It is now
   clerely defacid, and bussches grow where it stoode".
 
  

Henry Percy
 
 
  Henry Percy, 5th Earl of Northumberland. K.G., (1489 - 1527),
 
 
 
 
  known as 'The Magnificent' on account of the splendour of his establishment and
  his love of display, was eleven years of age when he succeeded. In 1503 he
  escorted Queen Margaret of Scotland, daughter of Henry VII, to Berwick, after
  her marriage to James IV. She stayed two days at Alnwick Castle. It is recorded
  that on her way through Cawledge Park, the Earl's Deer Park south of Alnwick,
  she killed a buck with her bow.
 
  In 1513 he took part in Henry VIII's expedition to France and was present at the
  sieges of Therouenne and Tournay and the Battle of the Spurs. In this year
  hostilities with Scotland were resumed, and Alnwick was the headquarters and
  place of assembly of the English forces. The Earl of Surrey, in command of an
  army of 26,000 men, marched north and halted at Alnwick on September 4th, where
  his son Thomas joined him with reinforcements. From Woolerhaugh he sent a herald
  challenging the Scottish King to join battle with him in five days' time and on
  9th September 1513 the English gained a decisive victory at Flodden. The Earl of
  Northumberland was absent in France, but his two brothers, William and Lionel,
  took part in the battle. In 1520 he was one of the ten earls appointed to wait
  on Francis I, the King of France, on the Field of the Cloth of Gold. He was a
  typical nobleman of the Renaissance, extremely cultured for his time, and,
  unlike his predecessors, preferred the life of the Court to that of Border
  warfare. He declined the appointment of Warden of the Marches, but this was
  probably on account of the expenses entailed by that office, which his own
  extravagance had rendered him unable to meet. In 1523 Surrey was Lord Warden,
  and Alnwick again formed the place of assembly for a large army. The Earl joined
  Surrey at Alnwick with a force of 876 men, but as the Scottish army, which
  threatened invasion did not advance, the English forces were disbanded.
  He married Katherrine Spencer co heir of Sir Robert Spencer K.t.,. They had 3
  sons and 2 daughters. They were,
  Henry Percy.
  Sir Thomas Percy K.t., had issue.(see 7th Earl)

Robert d'Estouteville
  Robert d'Estouteville:
  The Conqueror and His Companions
  by J.R. Planché, Somerset Herald. London: Tinsley Brothers, 1874.
 
  The "Sire d'Estoteville" of the Roman de Rou (l. 13,561) was in all probability
  Robert, surnamed Fronteboeuf, Granteboef, or, according to the French
  antiquaries, Grand-bois; but whether he was of Estouteville-sur-Cailly or
  Estouteville-sur-Mer may be an open question. There was a knightly family
  deriving their name from the former (at present a commune in the canton of
  Bouchy, arrondissement de Rouen), one of whom, Nicholas d'Estouteville, the
  great-great-grandson of Robert, married Gunnor or Gunnora, daughter of Hugh IV
  de Gournay, and widow of Robert de Gant, in the 12th century, and received with
  her in dower the manors of Beddingfield and Kimberly in Norfolk, which remained
  for many generations in the family of Stuteville, as it is called in England.
  This Estouteville was formerly a mouvance, i.e, a dependency on the fief of La
  Ferté en-Brai, of which the Gournays were the lords, and it is therefore likely
  that Robert d'Estouteville followed Hugh II de Gournay to England in the
  invading army.
  Dugdale's account of him and his son is very meagre and incorrect, and neither
  M. le Prévost nor Mr. Edward Taylor has taken any trouble on the subject,
  although some information has been furnished us by Orderic which enables me to
  correct Dugdale and answer the observation of M. le Prévost, echoed by Mr.
  Taylor, that he (Robert) must have been very young if he was the same who fell
  forty years after at Tenchebrai, in 1106, by the simple assurance to them that
  he was not the same.
  Some ten or eleven years previous to the Conquest, Robert I d'Estouteville was
  governor of the Castle of Ambriegrave;res, and stoutly defended it against
  Geoffrey Martel until relieved by the approach of Duke William. He could not
  therefore have been very young even at that time-say between twenty and thirty,
  and in 1066 he would have been between thirty and forty. Of his exploits at
  Senlac we hear nothing, and his name does not appear in Domesday, so we are in
  ignorance of the reward, if any, which he received for his services. The latest
  mention of him is by Orderic, who records him as a witness to a confirmation
  charter of William son of Fulk de Querneville, Dean of Evreux, to the Abbey of
  Ouche or St. Evroult, before the year 1089.
  The date of his death is unascertained; but he was succeeded by his son Robert
  II d'Estouteville, altogether omitted by Dugdale, but in connection with whom
  the following strange story is told by Orderic (lib. xi, cap. xiii.): --
    " The same year (1106) the following occurrence happened in Normandy: --
    Robert d'Estoteville, a brave and powerful baron, was a strong partizan of the
    Duke (Robert Court-heuse), and superintended his troops and fortresses in the
    Pays de Caux. It chanced on Easter-day (9th of April, 1105/6), as his chaplain
    was administering the holy sacrament to the baron and his household, that a
    certain knight having approached the altar for the purpose of reverently
    receiving the Eucharist, the priest took the consecrated wafer in his hand for
    the purpose of putting it into the mouth of the communicant, but found that he
    was quite incapable of lifting his hand from the altar. Both parties were
    exceedingly terrified by this circumstance, but at length the priest said to
    the knight, 'Take it if you can; for myself, it is out of my power to move my
    hand and deliver the Lord's body to you.' Upon this the knight stretched his
    neck over the altar, with some effort reached the chalice, and received the
    Host in his open mouth from the priest's hand. This extraordinary occurrence
    covered him with confusion, and apprehending some misfortune, but of what
    nature he knew not, he distributed in consequence the greatest portion of his
    wardrobe and other property amongst the poor and clergy. He was slain soon
    after Easter in the first battle fought at Maromme, near Rouen.
    " The chaplain, whose name was Robert, related to me what happened to him and
    the unfortunate knight, as I have stated, during the celebration of the
    lifegiving mysteries."
    The effect of this alarming miracle on Robert, the Lord of Estouteville, and
    his family, who were witnesses of it, is not recorded, but it is possible they
    might have some gloomy forebodings as respected themselves, which were
    speedily verified; for Robert, the son and heir of this Robert II, was taken
    prisoner by King Henry I a few months afterwards, at the storming of Dive, and
    his father also at the battle of Tenchebrai, closely following. The son was
    liberated; but the elder Robert was sent a captive to England and immured for
    life in a dungeon, and the whole of his estates were seized and bestowed by
    King Henry on Nigel de Albini, ancestor of the second race of the Mowbrays.
    It was Robert III de Stoteville, or Stuteville, the young knight who was taken
    at Dive, who distinguished himself in the battle of the Standard (temp.
    Stephen), and was made sheriff of Yorkshire by Henry II, in the sixteenth year
    of his reign, and who was in possession at that time of seven or eight
    knights' fees in England, how acquired does not appear, but as he was twice
    married, his second wife being Sibilla, sister of Philip de Valoines, it is
    probable that some of the lands came to him with his wives. Thorpenhow, in the
    county of Cumberland, he certainly had in frank marriage with the latter. He
    also it was who, with Ranulph de Glanville and Bernard de Balieul, defeated
    the Scots near Alnwick (20 Henry II), and took their king prisoner. He then
    laid claim to the barony of Roger de Mowbray, which had been given to Nigel,
    Roger's father, by Henry I, as above mentioned, and would therefore seem to
    have been held by his father and forfeited by his adherence to Robert
    Court-heuse. A long suit, during which we are told the country in general
    favoured Stoteville's title, terminated in a compromise, Roger de Mowbray
    giving up the lordship of Kirkby Moorside, with its appurtenances, to Robert
    de Stoteville, to be held by the service of nine knights' fees.
    This Robert de Stoteville founded two monasteries in Yorkshire, one at
    Rossedale and the other at Keldholme, and was a benefactor to the monks of St.
    Mary's Abbey in York. He also gave to the monks of Rievaulx all the lands
    between Redham and Kirkby, for the health of the soul of Robert his
    grandfather, and for the souls of Robert his father, and Erneburga his mother,
    as also for the souls of Helewisa his wife, and William his son, Sibilla his
    second wife surviving him.
    It is singular that although Dugdale has recited the provisions of this
    charter, and printed a pedigree which corresponds with it, he should have
    confounded the first Robert with the second, the second with the third, and
    invented a fourth, to whom he attributes the charter to the Abbey of Rievaulx.
 
   

William de Percy
  The name of Percy, strange to say, does not occur in the Roll of Battle Abbey; for I cannot agree with my old friend Sir Bernard Burke in his discovery of it in Percelay, a form in which I have never found it in any authority. Strange, because in view of the numerous interpolations it contains, one can scarcely imagine the omission of a name so distinguished in Anglo-Norman history. But for those manifest additions the fact of the absence of the name of Percy would go far to establish the genuineness of the Rolls, as no member of that family appears to have fought at Senlac, and William de Percy must be placed in the list of those noble Normans who "came over with the Conqueror" on his return to England in 1067, amongst whom I have already mentioned Roger de Montgoineri and Hugh d'Avranches.
  William de Percy was the sworn brother-in-arms of the latter, and accompanied him to England, *[Mon. Ang., vol. i, p. 72.] and who on being made Earl of Chester transferred to him the lordship of Whitby, with the extensive domains attached to it in the East Riding of Yorkshire. By what service he obtained the vast possessions held by him at the time of the general survey we have no information, an old manuscript, quoted by Dugdale, simply saying that, "being much beloved by the King," he enjoyed them through his bounty, and it is not till we arrive at the reign of Stephen that we hear of any remarkable actions attributed to his descendants, when his great-great-grandson, William de Percy, distinguished himself by his valour in the famous battle of the Standard.
  The name of this ancient and noble family was derived from their great fief of Perci, near Villedieu, in Normandy, and according to tradition they were the descendants of one Mainfred, a Dane, who had preceded Rollo into Neustria. Geoffrey, the son of Mainfred, followed him in the service of Rollo, and was succeeded in rotation by William, Geoffrey, William, and Geoffrey, all born in Normandy, the latter Geoffrey being the father of William de Percy, the subject of this notice, and of Serlo, his brother, the first abbot of Whitby, a monastery founded by William on the site of one called Skinshale, which had been destroyed by Inguar and Hubba.
  Upon this abbey William bestowed the towns of Seaxby and Everley; but resumed and regranted them to Ralph de Everley, his esquire, who had been in his service many years.
  Abbot Serlo, his brother, feeling injured by this proceeding, made his complaint to William Rufus, with whom he had been on terms of intimacy during the reign of his father, and the King ordered restitution to be made. Serlo, however, was not satisfied with the restoration of the towns, and having no confidence in his brother, determined to quit Whitby and establish himself where he should hold under the King only, and be out of his brother's power. He therefore begged of Rufus six carucates of land in Hakenas and Northfield, and translated thither part of the community of Whitby.
  William de Percy married a lady named Emma de Port, "in discharging of his conscience," says our ancient writer, she being "very heire" to the estates given to him by William the Conqueror, and in 1096, having joined the first Crusade in company with Robert Court-heuse, died at Montjoye, near Jerusalem, the celebrated eminence so named by the Christian Pilgrims, because from there they first caught sight of the sacred city. His body was brought back to England, and buried in the chapter house at Whitby.
  This Anglo-Norman race of the Percys became extinct in the male line at the close of the 12th century by the deaths, without issue, of the four sons of his grandson William, when this great inheritance was divided between their two sisters and co-heirs, Maud, wife of William de Mauduit, Earl of Warwick, who died without issue, and Agnes, on whom the whole possessions of the Percys in England devolved, and passed with her hand to Joceleyn de Louvaine, brother of Adeliza, Queen of Henry I, who assumed the name of Percy, retaining the arms of his own family.
  From the issue of this marriage descended those great Earls of Northumberland and Worcester, whose deeds and fortunes are interwoven with the most important portions of our history from the reign of Henry III to that of Charles II.
 
 

Stuteville Family
  The earliest recorded member of the Stuteville family is Robert de Stuteville I. The name, Stuteville or Estouteville, is derived from Etoutteville-sur-Mer. He was granted several holdings in England after the conquest, including those lands of which Hugh, son of Baldric, had been tenant-in-chief at the Domesday survey.
  In 1158 Knaresborough had been granted to Hugh de Morevill, possibly as compensation for lands ceded to the King of the Scots. Morevill forfeited the lands in 1173, according to "Early Yorkshire Charters": "... not apparently for his participation in the death of Becket <../town/partone.htm>, but for complicity in the rebellion of the young Henry.". Knaresborough, together with Aldborough, were given in custody to William de Stuteville in the same year.
  William, his father Robert, sheriff of York, and his uncle, Roger, aided the king (Henry II 1154 - 1189) in the capture of William King of Scots on the 13th July 1174 at Alnwick and were duly rewarded in 1175 by the official grant of these lands and others, and Robert was "..to take credit for the reception of the farms of these manors by William his son, since Michaelmas 1173...".
  When Richard I (1189 - 1199) came to the throne he levied a fine on William of 2000m. for confirming the land of Knaresborough to him. Knaresborough was further confirmed to William on 22nd April 1200 by King John (1199 - 1216), and, after William's death, to his son Robert de Stuteville IV on 9th July 1203.
  Robert de Stuteville IV died, under age, in 1205. William's brother and heir, Nicholas, offered 10000m. for the inheritance which was subject to the condition that the king retained the castles of Knaresborough and Boroughbridge until the fine was paid. The lands, in effect, reverted to the crown after William's death. The fine being unpaid, Henry III (1216 - 1272) granted Knaresborough, along with other holdings, to Hubert de Burgh, earl of Kent, and Margaret his wife, for life with remainder to their heirs. They were also granted the debt of 10000m. due from the heirs of William de Stuteville!

Kirkstall Abbey Coucher Book
   Translation of memorandum CXCII,The Coucher book of Kirkstall Abbey (undated).
  
  THIS MEMORANDUM WAS WRITTEN IN A DIFFERENT HAND TO THOSE MEMORANDA BEFORE AND AFTER IT AND APPEARS TO BE OF A LATER DATE (CERTAINLY AFTER 1290) AND TO HAVE BEEN INSERTED AFTERWARDS - PERHAPS DURING THE ABBACY OF JOHN DE BIRDSALL (1304-1311)
 
  Sir Robert De Birdsall, one time lord of the manor of Clifford, had one daughter named Sara, his heiress, who married Anketin Mallory and bore two  sons and four daughters viz. Anketin, Nicholas, Marjory, Avice, Nichola and Sara. Anketin died without heirs, Nicholas died overseas, whereupon heirship of Clifford was shared between  the four daughters. A certain Ralph Salvayn married Marjory, William Birdonn [married] Avice, Nicholas de Okelthosthorp (now Oglethorp near Bramham) [married] Nichola, Walter de Grimston (married) Sara, and after him [she married] a certain William De Glenton; this William and Sara sold all of their share to Adam de Potterton the Rector of Barwick,  and this Adam gave the share to the Duke of Clifford with his daughter. (this probably means that the land formed part of the dowry of Adam's daughter when she married the Duke.) This Duke and his heirs being held to  guarantee the Abbot and convent four shillings wherefore the Abbot would customarily return the four shillings to the heirs of Anketin, and when the holdings were divided between the four daughters the returned  four shillings derived  from one toft  would revert to the hands of the Duke.
  Be it noted that there was agreement and harmony between us (the Abbot and convent) and Anketin at that time that Anketin, the son of Anketin and Sarah, was the true master. Be it noted that Sir Robert had many brothers to whom he gave lands before the statute to hold for themselves and to carry on the name of Birdsall. Thereafter they sold these lands and for that reason Sir Robert could not be considered to be true master any longer.

     At the Survey Nigel Fossard held underthe count of Mortain in Birdsall
  (and Sutton) Chilbert's late manor of 13 carucates (and a half). In addi-
  ^,to hL and there was soc of the archbishop's manor of Weaverthorpe
  2 1/2 car., and Ulchil, the king's thegn, had a manor in Birdsall and Sutton
  (3 1/2 car. ), which he had held T.R.E. The land in Stearsby which Robert de
   Brideshale gave to St. Mary's was not included in the Survey of the land
  of the count of Mortain, but 2 carucates there were assigned to the count in
  the summary of the Survey. It is probable that there were 18 car. in
   Birdsall.   In 1303 there were 11 1/2 carucates of the fee of Maulay (Fossard)
   4 carucates of the archbishop's fee, and the canons of Watton had 2 1/2
   carucates belonging to the fee of Ros. The 11 1/2 carucates of the Fossard
   fee were  held in the l2th century by the local family, and formed part of the
   3 fees held in 1166 by Robert de Brideshale of William Fossard. This
   Robert may have been the Robert son of William de Brideshale who gave
  5 marks in 1166 for relief of land held of the crown in the wapentake of
   Harthilll. Two vears later he owed 5 marks for an agreement by duel
   with Walter Percehaie touching land, and paid the fine in 1169. From  that
  time nothing  more seems to be known about this, the elder, line of the family,
  and it is  evident that their demesne in Birdsall, amounting to at least 6
  carucates, escheated to William Fossard  It descended to the younger
   W lliam who had a wooden tower here known as " castrum de Mount-
   feraunt"  which was destroyed in or about 1176 by the Duke of Albermarle.
      The Brideshales had, however, sub-infeuded a considerable part of their
   land in Birdsall and Wharram-le-Street to a local family named Barkethorpe,
   of whom was Robert de Barkethorpe, the vendor to Adam first abbot of
  Meaux (1150-1160), of 2 bovates in Wharram. William de Barkethorpe, in
  the time of Philip, second abbot of Meaux (1160-1182), recovered against
  the monks a right of pasturage in the land around Wharram Grange, known
  as Thornlund, and about the year 1200 gave the monks his land of Hall-Garth
  in Wharram, near a mill called Schyrreve, and land between the York road
  trending towards Crandale and the bounds ofWharram Percy and between
  the water-course in Wharram-le-Street and the headland belonging to the
  Hospital of Jerusalem, in exchange for other land.  A few years later he
  renewed a former  agreement with the monks, limiting the right of pasturage
  of his rustics, dwelling on the west  side of Wharram, to 4 oxen and 4 horses
  in Wharram  Grange and excluding them from pasturage in Thornlund.
  The next  link in the descent is wanting, but in 1243 John de Barkethorpe
  held of the fee of Maulay 1 fee in Birdsall and 1/2  fee in Wharram ; in 1279
  William de Barkthorpe held 1/2  fee in Wharram.
 
  From Early Yorkshire Charters No.354 1156-1157
  In a confirmation by Henry II to the monks of St. Mary's ,York, of the gifts made to them by William I, William II, Henry I and various barons is mention of the gift to them by Robertus de Bridshala of the church at Birdsall and 2 carucates of land in Stearsby. (His gift of the church of Birdsall proves that he held a considerable part of the vill of Birdsall under Nigel Fossard, who had 12 carucates there. He also held the 2 carucates at Stearsby of Nigel Fossard, as of the escheated fee of the Count of Mortain, whose tenement in this vill is only recorded in the summary of The Survey.)

Adam Birdsall  tenement Clifford circa 1175

  Herbert Fitz-Herbert, tenant of the archbishop, succeeded his brother,
  Robert Fitz-Herbert the chamberlain, upon the latter's death without issue
  in 1165. In the following year he was returned as holding 3 knights' fees   
  under the archbishop. He died in 1204. The 2 bovates given to Watton   
  were held of him by William, son of Hugh de Bridesale as part of a    
  knight's fee consisting of 6 carucates of land.
  Gilbert de Bridssale occurs in the Pipe Rolls for 1167 and 1176.
   This charter is difficult to date, but it seems to belong  to the period 1175-1195.

Stephen Birdsall Vicar Warter 1427
  Canon Stephen de Birdsall was vicar of Warter nr. Beverley in May 1427.

Robert Birdsall land Terrington 1166
      Robert de Brideshale held a knight's fee of William Paynel
  in 1166. This lay in Terrington, wap. Bulmer, and in Wiganthorpe
  and Mowthorpe, both in the parish of Terrington.  Although
  there are no twelfth-century charters available to prove this
  identification the subsequent interest held by the Luterels makes
  it reasonably certain.
        At the Domesday survey the count of Mortain held a manor
  of 3 carucates 6 bovates in Terrington and Wiganthorpe, and 3
  carucates in Mowthorpe. Although Richard [de Surdeval] is not
  mentioned as the count's tenant, it is probable that as at Slingsbv
  and elsewhere  Ralph Paynel acquired an interest as his successor.
        Robert de Brideshale, who took his name from Birdsall in
  the East Riding, also held 3 knights' fees of William Fossard in 1166,
  part of which lay in Birdsall.  He was probably the grandson of
  Robert de Brideshale who gave the church of Birdsall and land in
  Stearsby to St. Mary's, York, in the period c. 1110-1125; and the
  son of William de Brideshale, being the Robert son of William de
  Brideshale who owed 5 marks for the relief of his land in the
  wapentake of Harthill at Michaelmas 1166;10 and the Robert son of
  William de Brideshale who issued a charter relating to Bramham,
  held of the Fossard fee, in the period 1160-80. Farrer gave some
  further details about him in his account of the Fossard fee, and
  suggested that the demesne in Birdsall held by the main line of the
  family escheated.
        In 1213 the king granted to Robert de Neville, his clerk, the
  custody of all the land and of the heirs of Adam de Muletorp, with
  their marriages and that of Mabel their mother, for 100li. and a
  palfrey. As in 1219 the son of Adam de Briddeshale was in the
  king's custody, mag. Robert de Neville having him of the king's
  gift, it is likely that Adam de Muletorp was the same person and
  a member of the Birdsall family.
        In 1226-28 William de Mulethorpe, who was alive in 1227,
  had held 2 carucates of land in Octon, wap. Dickering and 10
  bovates in North Dalton, wap. Harthill, as a serjeanty held of the
  king by the service of an archer, finding a serjeant for the custody
  of York castle in the time of war for 40 days and also a serjeant for
  leading the king's treasure through the whole county. In 1230 the
  king pardoned Anketil Mallore, who had as wife the daughter and
  heir of William de Mulethorpe, (disputable, The Kirkstall Coucher Book
  says that Anketin Mallory was married to Sarah, daughter and heiress of
  Robert de Brideshale) his scutage of a knight's fee which
  he held of Andrew Luterel of the fee of the said William. It may
  be deduced that it was this knight's fee which Robert de Brideshale
  had held of William Paynel in 1166. In 1275 Nicholas son of Sir
  Anketin Malore had held 3 carucates of land in Mowthorpe of the
  heirs of Sir Andrew Luterel, and land and rent in Terrington and
  Wiganthorpe, with the advowson of Terrington; and in 1288 one
  of his heirs had held land and rent in Mowthorpe, Wiganthorpe and
  Terrington of Robert Luterel by knight service.
