Name: Agnes de Verli
Change Date: 7 DEC 2010
Sister and co heir of Hugh de Verly..
The first known tenants of Swine were Richard de Verli (fl. 1115) and Hugh (fl. later 12th cent.). The same or another Hugh de Verli (d. by 1227) left as heirs two sisters, one of whom, Agnes de Verli, wife of Sir Alexander of Hilton (d. 1242), was succeeded by her son (Sir) Robert of Hilton. Robert, who was granted free warren in Swine in 1256, was then co-tenant with Nicholas de Piselegh, who had married Verli's other sister Amabel. He evidently later succeeded to the whole manor, and entailed it on a younger son Sir William of Hilton (d. c. 1290) and William's wife Maud.
