    The chapel at Bolsterone here appears to have been founded as early as 1412, by Sir Robert Rockley; originally a private chantry of that family, though it came at length to be used as a place of public worship by the inhabitants of the manor, living at a great distance. At the time of the foundation of this chapel, the Rockleys were owners of the Manor of Bolsterstone, which it appears they had obtained by the marriage of Robert de Rockley with Alice, the sole daughter of Sir Thomas Sheffield. Robert de Rokeley lived in the time of Richard II. and was the chief of an ancient family residing at Rockley, in Worsboroughdale, where they appear to have been seated as early as the reign of Henry II. (From Hunter's Hallamshire.)
    BOLSTERSTONE, in the township of Bradfield, and parish of Ecclesfield, upper-division of Strafforth and Tickhill; 9 miles from Penistone and Barnsley.
    Thomas Sheffield was living Jun 1402 when he sold the Manor(s) of Balderstone (Bolsterstone) and Penisall.
    I have not been able to assign any details to Thomas's immediate ancestry, other than that he descended from a 13th century second son of the senior Sheffield line.
