• Background Information. 772
Richard de Bayley de Stonyhurst was of full age by 2 Richard II, or 1379. He married Margaret de Sherburne about 1377, and died during the life of his father, John de Bayley. Richard's grandfather was Jordan de Bayley. Jordon had Stonyhurst by deed without date as a gift of Henry de Wath and his wife Margaret.

Richard and his wife Margaret had a son also named Richard who was born at Stonyhurst on the Feast of St. Wilfred, 5 Richard II, or 12 Oct 1381 and was baptized in the church of Mitton. Margaret was a widow in 11 and 12 Richard II, or 1388/89, and about that date her son succeeded his father, taking the name of Sherburne and becoming Richard de Sherburne.

• Web Reference: The family de Mitton.
Stonyhurst in Aighton was part of the original manor granted to Ralph the Red by Robert de Lacy in the Nov. 23, 1102 charter. Stonyhurst descended through Richard Bailey's grandfather, John, who received it by deed from his cousins Emma and Cecily Mitton in 1362. The Baileys were all descendants of Otto de Mitton, the grandson of Ralph the Red. Otto received the manor of Bailey from his older brother Hugh, then Lord of Mitton manor, around 1200. Otto de Mitton took the name de Bailey to differentiate his own sub-feuded manor. The de Bailey surname lasted until the death of his great, great, grandson Richard Bailey in 1388. That Richard Bailey was the founding father of the Shireburnes of Stonyhurst through his son only Richard Shireburne who took his mothers surname.

"A History of the Parish of Mitton in the West Riding of Yorkshire" by Frederick George Ackerley, 1947

"Otto's grandson, Jordan de Bailey, had a son Walter who was living in 1292 to 1323. His son John, who died in 1271, left a son Richard. This Richard de Bailey married Margaret Sherburne and assumed the surname of his wife. From this pair descended the Sherburne's of Stoneyhurst, who played a prominent part in the subsequent history of Mitton until the male line became extinct in the year 1717 (Sir Nicolas Sherburne's death). Thus the later Sherburnes were directly descended from the original grantee of the Manor, Ralph the Red.

Richard married Margaret de Sherburne, daughter of Sir Richard de Sherburne Knight and Alice de Plumpton, in 1379 in Cheshire, England.772
