    HORNBY,

    At the close of the 12th century the tenant in demesne was Conan son of Ellis, lord of East Cowton (q.v.), who held one fee in Ainderby and Holtby, this probably including his land in Hornby. He died without issue, his heirs being the three sisters of his father Ellis, Beatrice, ancestress of the family of Hornby, Parnel, who married a Lascelles, and Constance, ancestress of the family of Crakehall. Avis, widow of Conan, afterwards married Alan de Multon and held Hornby in dower. At her death it reverted to Ellis de Crakehall, William Lascelles and Robert de Hornby, sons of the co-heirs. In 1286 Robert Lascelles, brother and heir of William, held 2 of the 6 carucates in the vill. Peter de Crakehall, son of Ellis, also held 2, while of the other 2 Thomas deOttrington, nephew of Robert de Hornby, held one, and the other was in the hands of Richard Barton. The share of Thomas de Ottrington subsequently reverted to his aunt Sybil de Hornby, and it seems probable that this family gradually acquired the whole vill. Thomas de Hornby was the chief tenant here in 1316 and Robert de Hornby in 1327. Four years later mills and tenements in Hornby were settled on Robert and his wife Christina and their issue, with contingent remainder to Thomas St. Quintin and his heirs. In 1332 Christina, widow of Robert, and Thomas St. Quintin were holding jointly. Ather death the manor came into the sole possession of the family of St. Quintin, a younger branch of the St. Quintins of Harpham. Thomas was succeeded by his nephew William, who had a son and heir John. Anthony son of John died at the end of the 14th century, and left a daughter and heir Margaret, whose wardship and marriage belonged to Richard Lord Scrope. He married Margaret St. Quintin to John Conyers, 'a servant of his own,' who became the ancestor of the Conyers of Hornby. He was succeeded by a son and heir Christopher, who purchased more lands in Hornby. Christopher was alive in 1459, and was succeeded by his son John, who became Sheriff of Yorkshire 'at the king's special request,' but received none of the accustomed issues and profits. As a reward he had a pardon of all offences committed by him and all accounts due to the king. His son Sir John Conyers, who married Alice the daughter and co-heir of William Lord Fauconberg, predeceased him, and on his death in 1490 he was succeeded by his grandson and heir William, created Lord Conyers in 1506 or 1507.

    NOTE: John Watson, SGM, found that Thomas St. Quintin (above) had a son John (not just a great nephew), and since he has found no evidence of the extistence of an Anthony, surmises that the descent went simply Thomas => John => Margaret m. John Conyers. John Watson also found that John Conyers, himself, had purchased Margaret St. Quintins marriage contract.
