  • Note:

    Geoffrey de Wirce, from the Anjou-Britanny border, was the first Norman Lord of the Manor of Melton. 1077 provides written evidence of Melton as a market town ? though it is probable that Edward the Confessor (1042 to 1066) granted it market status. Its market status is re-affirmed in a charter from 1324.
    Robert de Molbrai, one of William the Conqueror?s noblemen, seems to have inherited Melton Manor ? though he was subsequently imprisoned after revolting against Rufus. In this manner the town became known as ?Melton Mowbray?.
    The lineage continued through his wife, Matilda, who had two sons by another husband. The eldest son was Roger, who participated in the Crusades, returning to endow the Leper Hospital at Burton Lazars. The second son was Hamo lived in the hamlet of Eye Kettleby, and seems to have taken the name ?Belers? -- as a result of which the hamlet of 'Kirby' became known as 'Kirby Bellars'.
