Hugh de Dutton, Son of Hugh, Son of Hodard, had the Lands which his father Hugh held of the Baron of Halton, confimed unto by William, son of Nigell, Constable to Randle the Second, and by William the son, did visit Hugh, the son of Hodard on his Death-bed at Kekwick; at which time Hugh, the son of Hodard gave until William the Father his Coat of Mail and his Charging Horse, and Hugh, the son of that Hugh, gave unto William the son, a Palfrey and a Sparrow-hawk. This was about the end of the Reign of King Henry the First.

This Hugh de Dutton had issue, Hugh Dutton, son and heir; Adam de Dutton, another son, from whom the Warburtons of Arley are descended and Geffrey de Dutton, another son, from whom the Duttons of Chedill in this county were propagated, who assumed the sir-name of Chedill, and continued to the Reign of Edward the Third, until Sir Roger of Chedill, (the last of that family) dying 1 Edw. 3, 1327, left his Inheritance to be shared by his two daughters and heirs, Clemence and Agnes; and out of that family de Chedill, branched Hamon Dutton under Edward the First, younger son to Sir Geffrey Dutton of Chedill, to whom his father gave Ashley, (13, Ed. 1, 1285) which he purchased for him. The posterity of this Hamon assumed to sir-name of Ashley from the place of their residence, as was the manner of the ages; which Family of Ashley's of Ashley continued to the end of Henry the Eighth; about which time Thomasin, daughter and heir of George Ashley of Ashley, Esquire, brought that Inheritance to Richard Brereton of Lea-Hall, not far from Middlewich, by marriage, who was a younger son of Sir William Brereton of Brereton in this county; in which name of Brer of Ashley it continued but four descents, and was divided among the three sisters of Thomas Brereton, and their heirs, Anno Domini 1661.
