From A History of the County of Lancaster: Volume 6, pp. 102-108, Within the footnotes, there records that connect the two Thomas Banestres with Joan de Singleton and Sir Adam Banastre:

Margery daughter of Henry son of Sweyn gave to Thomas Banastre land in Bretherton held in part from Adam Banastre and in part from the Knights of St. John, in exchange for lands in Scarisbrick which Thomas held of the Abbot of Cockersand; [MSS. cxlix, fol. 45].

Richard son of Richard de Thorp in 1293 granted Thomas son of Thomas Banastre lands in Bretherton and Thorp; [MSS. cxlix, fol. 37b].

Maud widow of Thomas le Boteler gave to Thomas son of Thomas Banastre land in Hillcroft in Bretherton formerly held by Adam his brother; [Dods. MSS. cxlix, fol. 44b]. Thomas son of Thomas le Boteler also made a grant to him in 1293; [Dods. MSS. cxlix, fol. 44b]

One Thomas Banastre (father or son) in 1288 held a third part of Heath Charnock; [Lancs. Inq. and Extents, i, 270]. The son Thomas married Joan de Singleton and thus acquired estates in the Fylde; he died in or before 1303; [Final Conc. (Rec. Soc. Lancs, and Ches.), i, 201]. The remainders were to William and Adam Banastre, brothers. The Adam Banastre who raised an insurrection in 1315 was almost certainly son of the younger Thomas. Thus in 1307-8 Sir Adam Banastre gave Sir William Banastre, his brother, a rent of £16 11s. 6½d. from his manors, &c., of Broughton, Salefield, Heath Charnock, Adlington, Duxbury and Shevington; [Dods. MSS. cxlix, fol. 47b].

Thomas de Bethum gave his daughter Eleanor the mesne manor of Farleton, and Eleanor was recorded as holding it in 1254. It seems that this manor passed to Eleanor's sister, Hawise. Hawise de Bathum was married Thomas Banastre of Bretherton, Lancashire. Their son was also named Thomas and his son was Adam Banastre, whose daughter Katherine married John de Harrington, younger, of Farleton in Lonsdale.
