    Sir Ralph de Betham, knt., son and heir of Thomas and Pamel in 1335 had a grant of free warren in Beetham.
    In 1347, writs were directed to Ralph de Betham, together with Thomas de Ross of Kendal Castle, to send their prisoners from their castles to the Tower of London. - This shows the former importance of Beetham Hall, then a castle. This Ralph de Betham held his lands of Joan de Coupland by "homage and fealty and the service of 32s. a year." "The Manor of Farleton at the same time was held by Nicholas de Haverington under the Lord de Betham. The same Ralph de Betham was a witness to a grant made by Sir Walter Strickland, of Sizergh, to his son John, of certain lands etc." The de Bethams had, at some time, been connected by marriage to the Stricklands as their arms were to be seen in the stained glass at Sizergh Castle.
