• Background Information. 910
Dame Alice de "Aynecurt," who circa 1260 was demised property at Sizergh by Robert son of Matthew de "Syzittsergh" which Sir Ralph de "Aynecurt," her late husband, had granted to the said Robert in exchange for land called "Ewode" [Dodsworth MSS, Vol. 149, f. 137d]. It appears probable that it was this Dame Alice who brought to the d'Eyncourts as her maritagium half of the manor of Blecarn, Cumberland, as well as half the manor of Carnforth in Warton, Lancastershire, both holds which were later in the possession of her grandson, Sir Walter Strickland, as part of his maternal inheritance [Cal. Inqs., 5 Edward II, p. 183]. In a claim regarding a moiety of Blencarn, initiated by Juliana widow of Adam Ireby against William de Thursby, it is stated that said moiety was then held by Alice de "Eincurt" [Abbrev. Placit., Rec. Com., p.78] The other moiety belonged to William de Thursby, whose daughter and heiress married Guy de Boyville, together with his wife Alice, sued Walter de Lindsay (one of the co-heirs of the third William de Lancaster, last lord of Kendal) that he keep the agreement which he had with them concerning a messuage, two bovates, and fifty acres of land in Carnforth [Curia Regis Rolls, Michaelmas, 45 Henry III, no. 171, m. 44d.] The paternity of Alice, wife of Sir Ralph d'Euncourt, is difficult to determined, but it is possible that she was an heiress of the Thursby family.
