    ?See Wooler for William de Huntercomb.?
    'Chevelyngham', the original name of the manor of Chillingham on the River Till, was part of the Alnwick barony until about 1170 when it was settled as a dowry on Thomas de Muschamp, Baron of Wooler, when Maud de Vescy married him.
    For many years, both before and after this transfer, the tenants of Chevelyngham were the Huntercomb family. Prosperous farmers, they built a fine stone manor-house early in the thirteenth century.
    William Huntercomb climbed into the aristocracy by marrying Isobel Muschamp, one of three sisters who became joint inheritors of the barony when Robert, their father, died in 1250. William did rather better than he had dared hope, for the other two girls died young and he and Isobel were left in sole charge; no longer tenants, they were now the owners of Chevelyngham, with heritable rights.
    Elevation meant also that the Huntercombs were on royalty's visiting list. King Henry 111 stayed with them in 1255 while returning from a holiday with his daughter, Scottish King Alexander III's queen, and in 1298 King Edward 1 called en route for less pleasant business at Falkirk.
