• Family Background. 1031
Broughton was given by William, count of Boulogne and Mortain, and Earl of Warren, to Ughtred, son of Huck, to hold by the service of 8s [Dodsworth MSS., cxlix, f.49]. It descended to Richard, son of Ughtred, who was put out of seisn by Theobald Walter. King John afterwards seized it, upon the death of Theobald, and in the Survey of 1212, it was described as being in the King's hands [Testa, ii, f.822]. Aterwards the King gave it to William le Sauser, but it was restored to Alan de Singleton, son of Richard, by Henry III, and was in the hands of Alan's son and heir, William de Singleton, on 22 Mar 1261, when it was found by inquisition that the manor ought not to be tailaged [Escaeta, 45 Hen. III, no. 37]. He was the father of Alan de Singleton, and probably of Thomas, both named in the concord.
