• Background Information. 826
Gilbert, the eldest son of William and Cecily, was a minor in 1220 at the death of his grandmother Edith, but had livery of his lands two years later [Rot. Lit. Claus. (Rec. Com.), 438; ; Fine R. 6 Hen. III, m. 7]. He adopted Barton as a surname, and was made a knight. He fell into the hands of Aaron, the Jew of York [Whalley Couch. i, 41], and parted with large portions of his lands [Final Conc. (Rec. Soc. Lancs. and Ches.) i, 62, 88], and finally sold his great lordship to Robert Grelley his feudal superior. This sale was confirmed by his son John [Whalley Couch. iii, 881]. Gilbert retained or regained the manor of Barton, but this was given to his daughter Agnes [Dods. MSS. cxlix, fol. 150], perhaps in view of her marriage with a Grelley, and her daughter and heir Loretta by marriage with John del Booth, about 1292, carried it into a family which, as Booth of Barton, retained it for 300 years.
