John de Clayton, likely brother of Robert de Clayton and son of Gerald de Clayton was in possession of the Manor of Clayton-le-Woods and was living in 1288, when it was found that he paid 12d. yearly to the lord of Leylandshire for castle-guard [Lancs. Inq. & Extents, i, 279]. John's son, Warine, appears to have succeeded in or about that year. Then followed Robert de Clayton 1302, and John, who died in 1312, holding lands, &c. in Clayton of Sir Henry de Lea by knights' service and payment of 6d. a year in the name of 'sake, bode and fode,' and 12d. for castle-guard.
