  1. 8.  Warine de Lancaster was born in in of Kendal, Westmorland, England.

    Notes:

    "Warine de Lancaster [...] was royal falconer, and ancestor of a family known as 'de Lea' or 'de Lee'. He was contemporary with Henry II. That he belongs in this family [the family of Gilbert and his son William I de Lancaster --pnh] appears to be undisputed, but how? In one charter concerning Forton in the Cockersand Chartulary Henry his son speaks of the land granted to his father Warine by "'his uncle' William de Lancaster, which another charter makes clear to have been William de Lancaster I. Was it Henry's uncle or Warine's? Here we presume Warine's, as he was active in the late 1100s, so the same generation as William de Lancaster II. Henry Warine's son granted Forton to the monks of Furness for the souls of William de Lancaster, Warine de Lancaster and Mabel, Warine's wife, Richard Fitton father of his own wife Margaret, &c.; Harl. Chart. (B.M.) 52 I, 1. But these sources do not name Warine's father. (The source of Farrer's assertion that his name was Gilbert is unknown.) It appears that he already possessed the demesne and wood of Forton in the time of William I, which he then passed on to a son Roger, who in turn passed it on to another son Adam. Might Warine have been a son Gundred de Warrene and William? This might explain his importance despite not being the main heir?" [Andrew Lancaster, citation details below.]

    Of the Lancashire branch of the Fittons; not to be confused with the Richard Fitton who died in 1245, or that Richard's father Richard.
