WILLIAM LE SCROPE, son and heir; of Wensley, was a witness in 1280 and 1285. Sir Thomas de Roos of Kendal and Sir William Aton, both more than 80 years of age in 1386, deposed that Sir William Scrope, father of Henry the chief justice and his brother Geoffrey, was the most noble tourneour, or bohourdeour, of his time, even before he was knighted. He held in East Bolton in 1284-85 of the Earl of Richmond, in 1285-86 in Yafforth, in 1286-87 in West Bolton, Little Bolton and East Bolton; and in 1296 obtained for himself and his heirs a grant of free warren in East and Little Bolton, Fencotes and Yarnwick. In September 1296, with Henry, he witnessed a grant by the abbot of Fountains to Harsculf de Cleseby. In 1298 he was knighted at the battle of Falkirk. He appears to have transferred the manors of East and Little Bolton to his son Henry, since by deed dated 4 June 1303 Henry granted these manors to his father William for life. He almost was dead before 1 February 1311/12.
