A moiety of the manor of Dilworth, Lancs, was granted by William Moton of Ribchester to Richard son of Alan de Singleton (Alan living abt about 1200), and seems to have become part of the main family estate, being held in demesne. The lordship descended regularly from Singleton to Banastre of Bretherton
The Singleton heiress Joan widow of Thomas Banastre made a settlement of her estate [at Dilworth] in 1303; Final Conc. (Rec. Soc. Lancs. and Ches.), i, 201.
In 1306 she allowed the beasts of Robert de Dilworth within her wood and pasture in return for a rent of 6d. to be levied on all Robert's tenements within Ribchester; Add. MS. 32106, no. 122.
Heir to Adam de Singleton and heir to her brother Thomas
How, if at all, does this fit in?:
?Sir Thomas Banastre, an early Knight of the Garter, yet remains to be noticed. This knight, the son of a Sir Adam and Lady Petronilla Banastre, of Claughton, the heiress of Singleton, did good service in the engagement against the Spaniards, under the Earl of Lancaster, and in 1360 he attended the king in his wars in France.?
