Alexander de Cuerdale
son of Gilbert occurs from 1246 to 1284. He acquired various portions of the township from his kinsfolk, the most important acquisition being that of half the manor from Ellen daughter of Adam son of Gospatric de Cuerdale in 1285 [Rec. Soc. Lancs. & Ches., Lancs. Assize R, 187]. A few years earlier, and whilst Gilbert de Clifton was seneschal of Blackburnshire, he obtained from the Earl of Lincoln remission of the yearly service of 10s., which appears to have been paid as farm of the fishery within the manor [ibid, K 9]. Alexander his son occurs in 1296, 1305 and 1311 holding the manor of the Earl of Lincoln by the rent of 10s. at St. Giles [Chet. Soc. Ii, De Lacy Compotus, 107; Inq. p.m. 4 Edward, no. 51]. By his wife Mary he had sons Robert and Geoffrey, and died before 1323. On 17 Oct. 1321, at Balderston, he settled his lands in Balderston upon Richard de Balderston and Alice his wife, sister of the grantor. [Dods. MSS. cxlix, fol. 41]
