Stephen de Meinill, the Second, son and heir of Robert de Meinill, the Second, was mentioned in a charter, dating around 1189-1199, as Stephen son of Robert son of Stephen de Mainello. In 1176, he owed 20 marks for forest trespass. He granted to Rievaulx Abbey woodland in Greenhow for the health of his soul and that of Hoan his wife. He also made a grant to Fountains Abbey of sand and land in Eston for the making of fisheries. He added to the gifts ofhis father and grandfather to Scarth in Whorlton by granting thereto the churches of Rudby and Whorlton and the chaplaincy of his his house. After his death, Hugh, his chaplain and executor and rector of the said churches, handed over Scarth and it endowments to Guisborough Priory. Stephen was married to Joan de Ros and he apparently was dead by 1188. This marriage can be fournd when Walter de Ros is described as uncle of Robert de Meinill the Third. Walter de Ros's grant to Kirkham Priory was confirmed by his brothers Piers, and by Robert de Ros, the chief lord.
