    Notes:

    From A History of the Church of St. Giles Northampton, citation details below:

    Richard Gobion added largely to his estates by marrying the daughter of Roger de Merley, the powerful Baron of Morpeth, who brought in frank marriage the manors of Knaptoft in Leicestershire, Shilvington in Northumberland, and Yedingham in Yorkshire.

    He was only a simple knight, but writers of later days persist in speaking of him as "Earl Gobion," and even as "Earl of Northampton," to neither of which titles had he the slightest claim.

    Thus the Heralds who visited Leicestershire in 1562-64, and who ought to have known better, left the following record of him:--"It ys to be remembered that the forenamed Rychard Gubbyon, Erl of Northampton was also Lord of Knapthorp, where he remeaned as apereth before proved by Sundry evydences. And for manyfest proff that this same was he that was Erl of Northampton he had in the said towme of Northampton, one manner called by the name of Gobyon, and the most parte of the towne, and also his tenents few or none reserved but paid rent to the said manner, And he gave goodly comons and sundry lybertyes on Gobyon's [Manner]. And this manner was throwne by descent from the name of Gubbyon to Pannell, and from Pannell to Kynesman, and so to Turpyn."

    The gift of the commons and liberties above mentioned, is thus explained by Henry Lee, a seventeenth century Town Clerk:

    "Earl Gobion, who lived in ye farme house in Abington street in this Town killed a man [in an election riot]. And he gott his pardon, and to quiett the Town granted to the poor liberty to follow syth and sickle in ye fields of Northampton, called Gobion's farme to this day."
