• Background Information. 1067
William de Hebden's wife was named Cicely and the line of William de Hebdens continued with their son Sir William de Hebden. They also had a daughter named Emma de Hebden. This elder William must have died before 1294 because his widow, Cicely, married for a second time to Amadus de Surdlyal. No more is known about Emma de Hebden, but her brother William was brought up in the custody of the Abbot of Fountains.

He was chantor of the cathecral at York, and one of the king's justices itinerant. At the commencement of his provostship, he received official letters in common with the bishops and others, informing he of the situation of the royal family on the breach of the truce by the king of France [Claus. 26 Henry III] and was subscribing witness to the convention between the king and Richard his brother [Rot. Pat. 28 Henry III]. In the Hundred Rolls, William is named in answer to the enquiry, Qui alii a Rege claman, &c.? D'nt 1'd in lib'tate Sc'i Joh' Beverlaci placitatr frisca a temp'e Will'i de Eboz videlt; a t'ginta anniis D.ns de Bev'.ay h't furcas a xv annix nescitur qo war'o. [Rot.
