  • ID: I22725
  • Name: Gilbert d' ATON & Malton, Sir 1 2
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: ABT 1278 in West Ayton, Yorkshire North Riding, England
  • Birth: BEF 1288 3
  • Death: AFT 10 APR 1350 in Malton, Yorkshire North Riding, England 1
  • Note:
    NOTE: I originally had Gilbert as brother of Isabel, being son of the elder William d'Aton. However CP note (g) below definitely indicates that Gilbert is the son of William who was brother another Gilbert. The CP article on John Darcy (IV:55 note (a)) verifies that this elder brother Gilbert who dsp. by 1285 was also brother to Isabel who married John Darcy. Since Isabel de Veer is mother of the younger Gilbert, this removes Isabel de Veer as mother of Gilbert's aunt Isabel d'Aton who married Roger Darcy. This is quite reasonable: had Isabel de Veer been mother of Isabel d'Aton, then Isabel d'Aton would have been a great granddaughter of Roger Bertram, d. bef. 1242; since her husband Roger Darcy was a grandson of Roger Bertram, the relationship would have been too close to allow a marriage without special dispensation.

    SIR GILBERT ATON of West Ayton, &c., co. York, son and heir of William Aton of the same, by Isabel (d), daughter of Sir Simon DE VEER, Of Goxhill, co. Lincoln, and Sproatley in Holderness.

    Following copied from Jerald L Chittenden, World Connect db=JerryC490, rootsweb.com:

    Gilbert de Aton inherited, in the 9th of Edward II, the estates of the Barons de Vesci. This Gilbert had command the year before to fit himself with horse and arms and to be at Newcastle-upon-Tyne on the feast day of the Blessed Virgin to restrain the hostilities of the Scots. In the 13th of Edward II, he was in the expedition into Scotland; and in the 17th of the same monarch he confirmed (in consideration of receiving 700 marks sterling) to Henry Lord Percie, as heir of William de Vesci, the castle and lands of Alnwick which Anthony Beke, bishop of Durham and patriarch of Jerusalem, had sold to the said Henry, although but confided to the bishop by William Lord de Vesci in trust for his bastard son, the last William de Vesci. In the following year (30 December, 1324) Gilbert de Aton was summoned to parliament as a baron of the realm, and he was so summoned during the remainder of his life. His lordship d. in 1342, and was s. by his son, William de Aton, 2nd Baron Aton.

        Text: Aged 26+ in 1314. I think he might have been very "+", especially as his son is born c. 1299. Inq.P.M.s are notoriously bad about understating how old someone is.
