  • Notes 
    • "Alan de Windle granted to Master Adam de Walton the homage of Adam son of William de Pemberton, and this being transferred to Adam de Walton, lord of Walton le Dale, was by him granted to Thurstan de Northlegh in 1316 [...]." ["Townships: Pemberton" in VCH Lancaster (citation details below), volume 4]

      It would appear that the "Adam de Walton, lord of Walton le Dale" mentioned above was Adam de Walton of Hoole, not this Adam; see below:

      From "Townships: Ulnes Walton" in VCH Lancaster (citation details below), volume 6:

      Warine had a son Adam, known as Master Adam, who, at least ultimately, inherited the family manors and estates in Ulnes Walton, Eccleston, Leyland, and Hoole, &c. He made a settlement of the manor of Hoole in 1294, and of the remainder of the estate in 1301; by this the manor of Walton, 30 acres in Leyland, 30s. rent in Kellamergh, and the moiety of the manors of Eccleston, Heskin and Leyland were settled on Adam de Walton of Hoole and his issue, with remainders to Adam de Walton of Mitton, William de Walton and Margery de Walton. The two Adams died without issue, so that the inheritance came to William, after some disputes with the heirs of Adam de Walton of Hoole. William had a daughter and heir Maud, who married William de Bracebridge, and they, in 1347, granted the manor of Ulnes Walton and the moieties of Eccleston, Heskin and Leyland to Henry Earl of Lancaster, receiving in exchange Berleye (Barley) in Yorkshire.

      Margery sister of Adam, who married Thurstan de Northlegh, appears to have held lands in the township, for her heirs, the Radcliffes and Bartons of Smithills (fn. 20) and the Leghs of Lyme, long held lands here.
