Sir Roger Hillary of Bescot was receiving 20 s. rent from free tenants at Goscote, Walsall, Staffs in 1356. ( Footnote 76 ) The estate descended with Bescot until 1411, when William Mountfort obtained seisin. ( Footnote 77 ) In 1411 or 1412, however, the estates of the younger Sir Roger Hillary (d. 1400) were divided and Goscote was assigned to Robert and Joan Roos, Margery, widow of Frederick Tylney, and John Gibthorp. Joan and Margery were Hillary's great-nieces and John was their nephew.

In 1393 Margaret Tilney gave a house and land on the east of the river and in 1447 Henry VI.
