  • ID: I39450
  • Name: Robert de CUNLIFFE , of Billington & Anderton 1 2
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: AFT 1298 in Billington, Blackburn, Lancashire, England 2
  • Death: AFT 1350 in Ladyhall, Anderton, Lancashire, England 2
  • Note:
    The Penwortham fee included ANDERTON, which was together with Brindle granted to the Grelleys, lords of Manchester, and in 1212 both were held by Robert Grelley, who performed no service for them. Of the Grelleys they were held by the Burnhull and Gerard families, whose lordship continued to be recognized in the inquisitions down to the 17th century. Of them the manor of Anderton appears to have been held in moieties from an early time by families named Anderton and Cunliffe, a rent of 9s. 6d. being payable to Manchester, with puture of the serjeants and suit of court.

    Of the origin of LADYHALGHor Ladyhall, the Cunliffe portion of the manor, nothing is known (33). About 1400 a moiety of the vill of Anderton together with Cunliffe in Billington and Wilpshire and other lands came into the possession of Adam de Lever of Great Lever in right of his wife Margaret sister of Roger de Cunliffe. It was sold in 1629, together with Great Lever, to Bishop Bridgeman, whose son Sir Orlando in 1663 sold it to Francis Anderton of Lostock. The moieties were thus reunited in the one lordship.

    (33) Robert de Cundecliffe or Cunliffe, as already stated, is mentioned as a former tenant in 1320. In the preceding year the guardian of the land and heir of Thomas de Anderton claimed to be guardian also of the heir of Robert de Cunliffe as tenant by knight's service. The Cunliffe moiety was in later times said to be held of the Andertons in socage.

    Manors of Billington, Lancashire:

    Robert de Cundeclyve held estates in Billington and the adjoining township of Wilpshire before 1246, and attested local grants to Stanlaw Abbey during the time of Henry III. He derived his name from a small estate in Rishton called Gundeclyf or Cundeclive, which he held of Edmund de Lacy in 1258 for 2s. rent. Robert his son occurs in 1276, and appears to have held for life the manor of Lostock in Deane parish, in which he had acquired an interest before 1288, probably by marriage. Another Robert succeeded and died before 1319, when the wardship of Robert his son was claimed by Simon de Holand in respect of half the manor of Anderton. The last-named Robert had been married in his father's lifetime to Alice daughter and heir of Stephen de Hamerton of Tadcaster, the patrimony in Billington, Wilpshire and Salesbury being settled upon them and their issue (86). He held a parcel of land in Billington of the Abbot of Whalley in 1347 (87), and settled his mesne manor of Ladyhalgh, or Ladyhall, in Anderton upon his son Robert and Margery his wife.

    (86) Stephen de Hamerton gave Robert and Alice lands and tenements in Tadcaster in 1329. In 1319 Simon de Holand demanded from Stephen de Hamerton custody of the land and heir of Robert de Cundeclyve which belonged to him because the land and heir of Thomas de Anderton, of whom Robert held by knight's service, were then in his hand.

    (87) Robert son of Robert de Cundeclif released lands in Wilpshire to Adam de Clitheroe, kt., in 1327. In 1337 he exchanged lands in Wilpshire with Robert son of Sir Adam de Clitheroe, kt. Robert son of Robert de Cunliffe, with his brothers Henry and John, was presented at a county court held at Wigan for riotously assembling with a multitude of armed men at Clitheroe on Saturday before St. Mary Magdalene, 1350, to the terror of the people.
