  • Note:
    Manor of Willey, Shropshire:

    ...in 1255 Willey was said to be held of the prior of Wenlock. In 1338 Robert of Harley acknowledged that he held Willey by the service interalia of carrying the prior's frock in Parliament, a serjeanty that must have been invented when the prior was first summoned.

    Warner was perhaps lord c. 1115 and, if so, had probably been succeeded by 1120 by Hugh of Willey. In 1180 Warner of Willey was lord. A leading figure in county government and undersheriff 1198-1200, Warner had been succeeded by his son Nicholas by 1231; Nicholas, similarly prominent in county government, was undersheriff in 1241 and dead by 1255. He was succeeded by his son Andrew, a minor. Andrew died at the battle of Evesham in 1265; his estate was forfeited, and only in 1276 was seisin delivered to William of Stapleton, whose son Philip had married Andrew's infant daughter and heir Burga. By 1283, however, Burga had married Richard of Harley (d. 1316), and thence forward until 1618 Willey descended with Harley (of which, with Willey, Joan of Harley was evidently still lady in 1410); Willey, however, did not belong to the lord's son and heir 1462-75.
