1306, 34 Edward I. - Hugh son of John de Eland released to Thomas de Langfield and Ellen his wife, Jordan de Insula and Isabel his wife, and John de Sayvile and Margery his wife, daughters and heirs of Henry de Rishworth, the rent of 10 marks for the moiety of the vill of Barkesland (Harley MS. 797, fo. 6 (Dodsworth's Yorkshire Notes); Watson, Halifax, p. 85).
This document establishes the fact as to the three daughters and coheirs of Henry de Rishworth. Thomas and Ellen de Langfield seem to have been dead in Michaelmas Term, 1322.
Margery was one of the three daughters and coheirs of Henry de Rishworth, who were all married before 1306, when Henry himself was dead. He was, as to part of his lands, a tenant of the manor of Wakefield, and his name occurs frequently in the Court Rolls. The earliest extant date is in 1275, and the last in 1298; his widow, Alice, occurs in 1307 (\Yakefield Court Rolls, Record Series., vol. i, p. 108; vol. 2, pp. 48, 88). He was clearly of age in 1275, which gives 1250 as the approximate date of his birth. The three daughters who survived him (there may have been other children who died young) were therefore probably born between 1270 and 1275, or thereabouts.
