  • Note:

    (The) notable English family name, Salkeld, emerged as an influential name in the county of Cumberland where they were recorded as a family of great antiquity seated as Lords of the manor of Great and Little Salkeld and estates in the shire. This distinguished name was considered to be one of the two greatests Clans, along with the Musgraves, defending the English West Marches of the English Scottish Border. By the 13th century the Clan had acquired Whitehall, Garbarrow, Salter, and Holtmerock in Cumberland, Rossgill in Westmoreland, Bassington in Northumberland. By the 15th century they had also branched south into Oxfordshire at Pradsey and Ruskett. Sir Richard Salkeld of Corby engraved the Arms of the family over the mantelpiece in Castle Salkeld in 1270 and can still be seen in the ruins. Notable amongst the family at this time was Sir Richard Salkeld of Corby.
