    Sneaton, Yorkshire East Riding:

    In 1086 SNEATON, where 5 carucates of land were at geld, was a berewick of Whitby (q.v.); it was granted by the founder to Whitby Abbey. The abbots continued to be overlords, and the Cholmleys, their successors in the ownership of Whitby manor and liberty, received a quit-rent at the close of the 18th century.

    The Arundels were the under-tenants. To John de Arundel, whose father preceded him in these parts, Benedict Abbot of Whitby (1139-48) confirmed the chapel. John, therefore, presumably held the manor. Reginald de Arundel of Sneaton appears in the next generation, and was perhaps a younger brother of the William de Arundel who held a knight's fee of William de Percy in Yorkshire in 1166. This knight's fee must have been in Foston-on-the-Wolds, which belonged to William de Arundel in the time of King John. The elder branch evidently enfeoffed the younger in Sneaton, as the former were afterwards mesne lords. William de Arundel left a brother and heir Roger, a justice, whose heirs were the descendants of his sisters Maud and Agnes and possibly of another sister Cecily. Maud had daughters Euphemia and Alice, the former being mother of William le Constable of Flamborough. Agnes married a Hotham or Holme and was mother of Thomas de Hotham or Holme. In 1221 William Constable, John de Belvoir (Beauver), Thomas de Hotham, Nicholas de Ainsty and Thomas de Birkin, co-heirs of Roger de Arundel, made fine for his lands.

    William Constable and John de Belvoir quitclaimed their share of services from the Sneaton under-tenant to Richard de Percy. In 1279-81 Thomas de Hotham's grandson John sued the under-tenant for services.' The Birkins also retained their share, but these mesne tenancies are not again mentioned.

    A John de Arundel, who was perhaps the eldest son of the Reginald mentioned above, and so possibly nephew of the mesne lord, was tenant of the manor in the reign of Richard I and left a daughter and heir Joan. Joan seems to have first married Robert Engeram; she ultimately married Roger de Nevill, by whom she had a son and heir John. John's sons William and John died childless and his daughter Joan succeeded. Joan married first William de Upsall and secondly William son of William de Percy of Kildale. Her son by her second marriage, Alexander de Percy, came of age in 1302. He was lord of Ormesby (q.v.), with which Sneaton descended until in 1602 Strangways Bradshaw conveyed it to George Bolles, sen., Joan his wife and others.

    [VCH Yorkshire North Riding, William Page, 1923, vol II, pp. 532-534]

    NOTE: The Sir William who was holding Foston during the reign of King John (1199-1216) was the son of William, d. >1175. William the younger died without issue >1199 and his heir was his brother Roger the judge, who died without issue c1210, leaving his sisters as his heirs.

    NOTE: According to Rosie Bevan, SGM, 27 May 2007, Maud de Arundel, above, had only 1 daughter Alice, who m. William Tison & had 2 daughters: Eufemia m. Robert Constable & Maud m. Robert de Beauveur. However I cannot fit the extra generation into the Constable line, so I am going with VCH Yorkshire (above) where Euphemia is a sister of Alice (Rosie Bevan, SGM, 14 Jun 2003, had it as VCH Yorkshire had it, but must have changed her mind).
