Name: Roger de Bacheworth
Residence: Harefield, Middsx
Change Date: 16 OCT 2008
By a quo warranto, bearing date 1284, it appears that Roger de Bacheworth was then lord of the manor of Harefield, and that he and his ancestors had enjoyed it time immemorial, paying a small quit rent to the honor of Clare.
Sir Richard de Bacheworth, in the year 1315, granted the manor to Simon de Swanland, who married the elder daughter and co-heir of his brother Roger. This Sir Richard afterwards took upon himself the habit of the knights hospitallers, and his wife Margaret assumed the veil.
William, son of Sir Simon de Swanland, had three sons, two of whom died in their infancy, and the third left no issue. Joanna, the only daughter, married John Newdigate.
