Name: Gilbert Haydock
Birth: in Haydock, Warrington, Lancashire
Death: ABT 1425 in Bradley Hall, Eccleston, Lancashire
Change Date: 11 MAR 2013
Sir Gilbert de Haydock succeeded his father at the age of 30.
On 14 Sep 1397, by deed dated at Bradley, Sir Gilbert made a settlement of his estates, in which he names his manor of Haydock, and all his lands, tenement, homages, rents and services, with their appurtenances, in vills of Haydoc, Newton, Golburne and Bold, with those in Weryngton, Great Sonkey and Burtonwood, with his monor of Bradley.
Sir Gilbert's wife was Sybil, daughter of William de Hogton. They had several daughters, the eldest of whom, Johanna, was married to Peter de Legh, and the second, Alice, to Robert Downes.
The settlements in which the Haydocks claimed a third of the Boteler estates were evidently regarded as having a questionable validity, seeing that they were very frequently made the subject of subsequent settlements by John de Haydock, while his son Gilbert also took releases from the tenants; and in the end they formed the subject of a suit by Sir Thomas Boteler against Piers de Legh in 1493. It was agreed to refer the matter to arbitration, when in 1504, on the gound of collateral warranty, the arbitrators adjudged the right of these lands to Piers de legh, as lineally representing John and Joan de Haydock; and in settlement of the family quarrel, Cecilia, daugher of Piers de Legh, was married to Thomas, son and heir of Sir Thomas Botleler. There were no male heirs of this marriage.
