• Background Information. 863
Sir Walkelyn de Arderene, Knight, son and heir of Sir John, succeeded his father as Lord of Aldford in or before 1237/8. This is shown by his grant to Richard de Sondbache, who was a military tenant of Aldford, during the Justiciaryship of Sir Richard Draicote. Sir Walkelyn is recorded in the Cheshire Domesday Roll, 2 Jun 1233, as sitting in the Court of Chester with Earl John and his barons, and then had place between roger de Meinilgarin and William de Malpas. He is also recorded, Nov. 1236, as presiding in the court, "loco Comitis, eo die," the Abbot of Chester and the barons of Kinderton, Dunham and Montalt, being also present. Again in 1244/5, he is recorded as presiding along with the Constable of Chester Castle.
In 1253, Walkelyn de Arderne had a grant for a market, fair and free warren in Aldford and Alderley in Cheshire, and Elleford in Staffordshire. About 1255, Walkelyn appears to have often been in attendance to the court at Windsor, and as a witness to almost all the Charters on the Roll, and was last cited in 41 Henry III. After this, the manor of Alvandelegh was given by Sir Walkelyn de Arderne, to Peter de Arderne, his son and heir, and to Peter's heirs.
