  • Note:
    NOTE: The following article on Walworth gives us the origin of the family of Hansard, and also has a family tree which gives the descent through several generations. It states that Gilbert was a brother of Robert FitzMaldred, Lord of Raby, who m. Isabel de Neville. However this has been debunked since that time.

    Manor of Walworth, Durham;

    The ancient manor and estate of Walworth, lies three miles to the South-west of Heighington.

    The Hansards are the earliest owners on record; but it is evident that the founder of the line was a cadet of the house of Raby, Gilbert le Halsart, son of the younger Meldred, and brother of that Robert Fitz-Meldred who married the heir of Neville. His descendants held Walworth in long lineal succession. In 1466 an escheat describes the manor as including,

    One chief messuage, with divers outhouses, two granaries, a stable, and sheepfold, value per ann. xiiis. iiiid.; twelve cottages, xxxs.; 400 acres of arable land, xxiiiil.; 200 acres of pasture, cs.; 20 acres of meadow, xxiiis. 4d..

    There were two great courts held in the year, viz. at Easter and St. Michael the Archangel, with other lesser courts held from three weeks to three weeks, of which the profits were 2s. per annum.

    Cardinal Wolsey granted the wardship of Elizabeth, heiress of the last William Hansard, to Sir William Ayscough, of South Kelsey, in Lincolnshire, Knt. who married her to his own son, Sir Francis Ayscough.

    [The History and Antiquities of the County Palatine of Durham, Robert Surtees, 1823, vol 3, pp. 303-24]

    NOTE: Gilbert Halsart/Hansard was a half-brother of Robert FitzMaldred, both being sons of Joan de Stuteville by different fathers.

    Hornby Manor, Great Smeaton, Yorkshire North Riding:

    HORNBY (Horebodebi, Horenbodebi, xi cent.; Herneby, Erneby, xiv cent.) was land of the Bishop of Durham in 1086, and it was held of the manor of Northallerton in 1573. Before the Conquest Aschil held 2 carucates here. In 1086 the soke of this land was in Sessay, and it was waste. Hugh, Bishop of Durham, granted the vill of Hornby for his services to Gilbert Hansard, who made a grant of land in this territory to St. Mary's Abbey, York, in 1184. Gilbert was succeeded by his son Gilbert, to whom King John confirmed the vill in 1199; his Durham lands descended to his son Sir John Hansard, kt., but another branch of the family must have been in possession of Hornby, for in 1281 one Gilbert Hansard settled a messuage and lands here on John Hansard, jun., and his heirs with remainders to Gilbert brother of John and his heirs, and contingent remainder to Gilbert's own right heirs. Gilbert Hansard held 4 carucates here in 12867 and in 1316 was returned as sole lord.

    Manor of Newton Hanzard/Hansard, Elwick Hall, Durham:

    It seems probable that the manor of NEWTON HANZARD (Hannsard, xiv cent.; Hannserde, xv cent.; Hansell, xvi cent.; Hainsaid, xvii cent.) was acquired with Embleton (q.v.) by Gilbert Hansard from John de Laci, Constable of Chester.) A later Gilbert Hansard granted it in 1290 to his son Robert, with the vills of Embleton and Swainston, to hold of Sir Henry de Laci, Earl of Lincoln, on condition that Robert paid him an annuity of 71 marks. In 1348 Alice Countess of Lincoln, who held the overlordship, died without issue, and the tenant, Sir Roger Hansard, was called upon to do homage to the bishop. He granted the manor in 1351 for fourteen years to Sir William Dacre.

    Manor of High Worsall, Northallerton, Yorkshire North Riding:

    In 1086 4 carucates in HIGH WORSALL (Wercesel, Wirceshel, xi cent.; Werkeshal, xii cent.; Magna Wyrkesale, xiv cent.) which had belonged to Altor and Elfi at an earlier date were in the hands of the king. The overlordship soon afterwards came into the possession of the Bishops of Durham, with whom it remained until at least the 16th century.

    William de Vesci and his relative John, the Constable of Chester, held High Worsall in the 12th century, and granted it to Gilbert Hansard, whose son Gilbert obtained a confirmation of the vill from King John in 1199. John Oliver obtained a writ of right for 4 carucates here in 1207, but the fee seems to have been retained by the Hansards, for in 1284-5 it was held of Gilbert Hansard by John Hansard, whose father Gilbert had settled it upon him and his wife Maud and their heirs. John Hansard was succeeded by a daughter Joan, who probably married the Gilbert de Toutheby, or Thorneby, to whom the Bishop of Durham granted the manor of High Worsall in 1310.
