• Background Information. 827
One Thomas Banastre (father or son) in 1288 held a third part of Heath Charnock; [Lancs. Inq. and Extents, i, 270]. The son Thomas married Joan de Singleton and thus acquired estates in the Fylde; he died in or before 1303; [Final Conc. (Rec. Soc. Lancs, and Ches.), i, 201]. The remainders were to William and Adam Banastre, brothers. The Adam Banastre who raised an insurrection in 1315 was almost certainly son of the younger Thomas. Thus in 1307-8 Sir Adam Banastre gave Sir William Banastre, his brother, a rent of £16 11s. 6½d. from his manors, &c., of Broughton, Salefield, Heath Charnock, Adlington, Duxbury and Shevington; [Dods. MSS. cxlix, fol. 47b].

William Banastre, son of Thomas Banastre, died in or before 1323, holding lands in Singlton, Claughton, &c.[ Inq. p.m. 17 Edw. II, no. 45]. His son, Adam, afterwards Sir Adam, was said to be sixtenn years of age.
