(c) Alexander went on pilgrimage to Jerusalem in 1241 and never returned. He was son and heir of William de Helton (who d. before 20 Apr 1208, by Bone, daughter of German Tison, of Shilbottle, Northumberland.
(e) Hugh was dead in 1227. On 9 Aug 1227 the Sheriff of York was ordered to take over all the goods of Hugh de Verly into the King's hand and to restore them to the executors with reservation for the debt Hugh owed to the King. Agnes's sister and coheir was Amabel, wife of Nicholas de Piselegh in 1233, at which time Agnes seems to have been dead. The possession of his wife's inheritance explains why Alexander de Hilton was called upon to pay off a Crown debt due by Hugh de Verly. This was accomplished by 1244.
