  • Notes 
    • Called by Ormerod (actually Helsby, editor and expander of the second edition of the History of Chester, citation details below) "John fitz Warin de Waleton."

      "Robert de Legh of Adlington and William de Radcliffe of Smithills married respectively Maud and Katherine, daughters and co-heirs of Thurstan de Northlegh in Pemberton, by his wife Margery, daughter and heir of John de Walton [...]." ["Townships: Pemberton" in VCH Lancaster (citation details below), volume 4]

      "In 1311 Robert del Clough and Joan his wife claimed two-thirds of certain messuages, &c., in Eccleston and Ulnes Walton against Margery daughter of John de Walton, and it appeared that Joan, Margaret and Margery were the sisters and heirs of Adam son of John de Walton. Margery had married Thurstan de Northlegh before 1315, when the suit was continued. From a continuation of the suit it is shown that John de Walton was brother and heir of an Adam de Walton. Afterwards (1320) Thurstan de Northlegh and his wife appear to have purchased the rights of Joan and her husband [...]." ["Townships: Ulnes Walton" in VCH Lancaster (citation details below), volume 6]
