    Manor of Sharples, Lancashire:

    One Roger de Sharples in 1315-16 granted to Sir William de Holland, ancestor of the Denton family, his manor of Sharples and all his land there, together with his goods, movable and immovable, in the manor and his share of the waste (19). Sir William at once granted it to Thurstan son of Margaret de Shoresworth for life. Thurstan in 1332 made a feoffment of his lands in the hamlet of Sharples in the vill of Great Bolton and in Harwood; and in 1335 granted the manor of Sharples to his mother, together with the homages and services of Jordan son of Adam de Sharples and others. The Holland family acquired other lands in the hamlet or township, and in 1429 Thurstan de Holland made an agreement with Sir Ralph de Radcliffe touching part of a field called Rodenhey, adjoining the road leading from Smithills.

    From the rental of 1473 it appears that the rent of 3s. 2d. was contributed by three occupiers: Richard Sharples, 18d.; Robert Sharples, 10d.; and Richard Holland of Denton, 10d. The Holland manor therefore was rather more than a fourth part. It continued to descend with the Denton estates, and the Earl of Wilton is now reputed to be lord of the manor.

    (19) There are three charters, and Adam de Sharples attested one of them. John son of Roger de Sharples at the same time released all his right. The Pendlebury family had had an estate in Sharples, which was acquired by Sir William de Holland and his son Thurstan. William son of Roger de Pendlebury granted to John de Prestwich, rector of Whitwell, all the lands in Sharples coming to him on the death of Maud daughter of his brother Ellis de Pendlebury. Lettice, another daughter of Ellis, released to the same John de Prestwich in 1301 all her interest in the lands in Sharples and Great Bolton granted by her uncle William son of Roger de Pendlebury. Beatrice, a third daughter, in 1331 released all her right in Sharples in the vills of Great Bolton and Harwood to Thurstan son of Margaret de Shoresworth. In the meantime, apparently in 1307, John de Prestwich had granted to Sir William de Holland all his lands in Sharples, with rents, homages, wards, reliefs, &c. Roger de Bindloss of Sharples at the same time released to Sir William all his claim to the lands, rents, &c., including the homage and service of Alexander de Turton. Another ancient estate also seems to have come into the Hollands' possession - perhaps that of the Alexander de Turton named above. Ellis son of Gamel the White (Albi) of Turton granted all his land in Sharples and the Boothstead to his son Alexander; and in 1307 Margery the widow of Ellis son of Gamel released to the same Alexander her right in Sharples in the vill of Bolton.
