  • ID: I71699
  • Name: Leising de Farnworth
  • Sex: M
  • Residence: Great Lever, Lancs
  • LVG: ABT 1200
  • Note:

    Not far from the year 1200 Leising de Lever, apparently the lord of Little Lever, granted to Leising de Farnworth a moiety of the vill of Great Lever, with common of pasture in Little Lever; the moiety to be held of Roger de Middleton by the service of the fortieth part of a knight's fee. Descendants of the grantor?Henry, William, and Henry?who appear to be described sometimes as ' of Little Lever,' but usually as 'of Great Lever,' continued to claim the lordship during the 13th century, after which no more is heard of them in this connexion. Leising de Farnworth probably adopted the local surname, and seems to have been the father of Emma de Lever, with whose son John the more detailed history of the manor begins in the third quarter of the century.
