    Manors of Urswick, Lancashire:

    Although Urswick is not mentioned by name in Domesday Book, it is probable that all the land in it is accounted for in manors held in 1066 by Earl Tostig and Turulf of Ulverston. The former held Bardsea, four ploughlands, and Stainton, two plough-lands, while the latter held Bolton as six plough-lands. (fn. 13) The assessments became reduced by half. Bolton and Stainton were afterwards held with Aldingham by Michael le Fleming, (fn. 14) and by an exchange he acquired Bardsea from the monks of Furness, who had received it as part of their endowment in 1127. (fn. 15) Thus the whole parish came into the hands of the lord of Aldingham, and has since remained within the lordship of Muchland, (fn. 16) the courts of which are now held at Bardsea.

    In 1212 it was found that five separate grants had been made by Michael le Fleming and his son William, these no doubt being the origin of the subordinate manors which come under notice in later times. The descent of these manors cannot be described completely, owing to the paucity of evidence.
