BARONY OF HYLTON 5 (title not recognized by CP)
SIR WILLIAM (DE HILTON), LORD HILTON, son and heir, born at Alnwick Castle, Northumberland, and baptized in the church there, 7 November 1355. In 1378 his purparty of his mother's inheritance was released to him. He was a knight by 1380. He is frequently styled "the Baron of Hilton" 1380-i401, and in 1391 is called banneret. In 1381 an enquiry was ordered as to two ships bound for Scotland which had been seized by him and others and the goods taken, in consequence of which the Scots were making reprisals. He accompanied the Bishop of Norwich in his "Crusade" to Flanders in May 1383, and afterwards had a dispute with the said Bishop in the Court of Chivalry about his service in that expedition. On 16 April 1386 he was granted 50 marks a year, having agreed to remain with the King for life, and to serve him in peace and war with 20 men-at-arms and 20 archers. In April 1386, and also in 1408 and 1415, he was a Commissioner in Chester Ward, Durham. In 1388 he was about to go to sea with Richard, Earl of Arundel, Admiral of England. In June 1404 he was about to go to sea on the King's service. He was one of the Lords temporal who gave their assent, in Parliament, 23 October 1399, to the secret imprisonment of Richard II. In 1411 he was bound over to keep the peace.
He married Denise, daughter of Sir Robert DE HILTON, of Swine in Holderness, by Constance, daughter of Piers, 4th Lord Mauley, by Constance, 1st daughter and coheir of Sir Thomas DE Sutton of Braunsholm Castle and Sutton, also in Holderness, [3rd Lord Sutton of Holderness]. He died 25 May 1435, aged 79. His widow, whose dower was ordered to be assigned 13 September 1435, died 31 July 1436. [Complete Peerage VII:25-7, XIV:400, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]
NOTE: John Ravilious cited several sources in stating that Denise's mother was not Constance de Mauley, but Robert's 1st wife Isabel (who was mother of all of his children). Constance & Robert were married far too late to have children.
