Katherine Banastre, daughter of Sir Adam Banastre, Knight, beheaded 1314, and Margaret de Holand, sister of Sir Robert de Holand of Upholland, co. Lancaster, and widow of Sir John Blackburn; in Sep 1352 Henry, Duke of Lancaster, granted to John de Harington of Farleton a lease of the manor of Hornby.

    In 1066 FARLETON was one of the manors held by Chetel in Bentham. Later it was added to the lordship or barony of Hornby, and was included in a grant of six plough-lands made by Adam de Montbegon to Geoffrey de Valoines. A small portion, assessed as I oxgang of land, was given to Ellis de Wennington. The tenure in each case was by knight's service.

    The former grant, the manor proper, descended like Cantsfield for a time, but soon after 1300 came to the Harringtons of Aldingham, and in 1306 the manor was in dispute between John son of Robert de Harrington and John son of Walter de Cansfield. This manor was granted to a younger son, who made it his residence, and was known as Sir John de Harrington of Farleton; by his wife Katherine he had portions of the manors of Bolton-le-Moors, Chorley and Aighton. Sir John died in 1359 holding the manor of Farleton of John de Harrington of Aldingham by the service of a rose yearly and performing suit at the court of Hornby from three weeks to three weeks, the manor being held of Robert de Nevill of Hornby by knight's service. Robert de Harrington, the son and heir, died abroad in 1361, his heir being a younger brother Nicholas, aged sixteen years. William son of Nicholas by his marriage acquired the lordship of Hornby, but in 1411 made a settlement of the paternal manors of Farleton, Chorley, &c. From this time the manor is recorded among the Hornby manors, as in the Mounteagle inquisitions and later; it also was claimed and apparently held by the heirs male of the Harrington family. Thus Sir James Harrington in 1479 had licence to build towers, &c., at Farleton, and to inclose and empark all his lands, woods, &c, there. In 1521-2 the king granted to James Harrington the manors of Farleton in Lonsdale. Farleton in Kendal and Brierley in Yorkshire, formerly belonging to Sir James Harrington, and on his attainder granted by Henry VII to Sir Edward Stanley, afterwards Lord Mounteagle, except certain portions (including Hornby); but these portions were to revert to James Harrington if Lord Mounteagle had no heirs male. This right or claim appears from time to time, and in 1664 the manors of Tatham and Farleton forfeited by James and Robert Harrington were granted by the king to the Earl of Cardigan, who also purchased the lordship of Hornby. In this way the manor of Farleton seems to have become annexed to Hornby finally, and it has since descended with it.

    Manor of FARLETON, Westmorland:

    The mesne manor of Farleton appears to have been given by Thomas de Bethum in the time of Henry III to his daughter, Eleanor, who held it in 1254. It appears to have passed to Eleanor's sister, Hawise, the wife of Thomas Banastre of Bretherton, co. Lanc., who had received a considerable maritagium in Beetham. Thomas Banastre their son, was father of Adam Banastre, whose daughter Katherine married John de Harrington, younger, of Farleton in Lonsdale.

    ------------------

    1342 William de Coucy and William Fowler were summoned to answer to John de Haveryngton, younger, knt., of a plea wherefor they took the said John's cattle, namely six oxen and four cows, and unjustly detained them in Bethum, in a place called Kirkebrek. William de Coucy says that one Ralph de Bethum holds of him the manor of Bethum by homage and fealty and by certain services which are in arrears. The said John says that he and Katherine his wife in the right of the said Katherine hold 24 messuages, a mill etc. in the said manor of Bethum. (10) William says that Thomas de Bethum greatgreat-grandfather (triavus, sic) of the said Ralph was seised of the manor of Bethum, which he held of Walter de Lyndeseye, and the said Thomas granted the tenement which John and Katherine hold to Hawise his daughter, from whom the right descended to Thomas son and heir of Hawise and from the said Thomas to Adam Banastre, father of the said Katherine.

    (10) Probably Farleton.
