• Background Information. 141
Sir Walter de Faucomberge, of Rise and Withernwick in Holderness, son and heir of Sir Piers de Faucomberge, of the same (living Apr. 1230), by his 1st wife, Margaret daughter of Richard de Muntfichet, of Stansted, Essex.

~Cokayne's Complete Peerage, 2nd Edition, Vol. V, p. 267

• Background Information. 1356
Rise manor, variously said to comprise 5½ or 7½ carucates, was held by Knut [Knut may have been the son of Carl, who killed Earl Aldred in 'Rise wood', and grandson of Thorbrand: Y.A.J. iv. 391; V.C.H. Yorks. ii. 145] in 1066, then passed to William Malet and, after his deprivation circa 1070, to Drew de Bevrère by 1086. The estate, which was later part of the Aumale fee, was held in 1086 by Drew's undertenant Franco de Fauconberg. [V.C.H. Yorks. ii. 167\endash 8, 268, 295; Feud. Aids, vi. 40. For Franco and his successors, Chron. de Melsa (Rolls Ser.), i. 78; Complete Peerage. s.v. Fauconberge; Early Yorks. Fam. (Y.A.S. Rec. Ser. cxxxv), 26\endash 7] Rise was evidently later the chief manor of the Fauconberg fee in Holderness, in 1624 including holdings at Arnold, Bilton, Marton, Rowton, and North Skirlaugh, all in Swine parish, Catfoss, Great Hatfield, and Seaton, in Sigglesthorne, Bewholme, in Nunkeeling, South Frodingham, in Owthorne, Ulrome, in Skipsea, and Southcoates, in Drypool, and in the parishes of Catwick, Hornsea, and Sutton.

Walter de Fauconberg was lord of Rise circa. 1200. [Chron. de Melsa (Rolls Ser.), i. 303] The manor descended almost certainly to Sir Peter de Fauconberg (fl. earlier 13th century) [Yorks. Deeds, ix, p. 11] and by 1264 belonged to his son Walter de Fauconberg, later Lord Fauconberg (d. 1304). [Yorks. Deeds, viii, p. 74;, Kirkby's Inquest (Sur. Soc. xlix), 372; Feud. Aids, vi. 40; Cal. Inq. p.m. iv, p. 357]
