Henry II's grant of lands to Warin de Lancaster by the sergeantry of falconry was confirmed to Henry de Lancaster, son of Warin, by John, Count of Mortain (1189-1194) and soon again after John became King - from the Charter Roll, 1 John, Pt. 1, m. 5. By a charter dated 23 August 1207 the King granted to Henry the Manor of English Lea in exchange for Liverpool and Up-Litherland - from "Final Concords of the County of Lancaster: From the Original Chirographs, Or Feet of Fines..." by William Farrer. Some researchers place yet another generation between (4) William I and Henry, making him fourth in descent.
