Alexander de Standish (Lord of the Manor 1434-1445)

There is not a great deal of documentary evidence about how Alexander carried out his tenure of the manor, just a deed or two recording legal squabbles. In 1440 he accused several men of trying to murder him at Langtree. We do not know the outcome. His father evidently married twice for in 1441 he sued his stepmother, Joan, for the recovery of a sealed chest. Then, in 1445, the old quarrel between Standish and Langeton flared up again. James Langton sued Alexander de Standish for the return of a bond. This was a bond given by Laurence, Alexander's father, to James Langeton in which he bound himself in £1,000 to James, to abide by the award of Alice Gerard. James Langeton had given the bond to Alice Gerard, who acted as arbitrator in the dispute. Alice, however, had died and the bond had come into the possession of her daughter, Constance, and so into the hands of Alexander de Standish, for, it will be recalled, Constance was his wife. James lost the case.

Alexander de Standish died in 1445, leaving his son, Ralph, to succeed him in the manor and to his other possessions, including land in Shevington and a tenure in Ormskirk.

Among the Standish deeds of the period is a rent roll of Ughtred de Dokesbury, dated 1444/1445, which is of interest as typifying the kind of rents paid, although we do not know here the size of the holdings. It was itemised:

The holding of Hugh Cowper 29s 6d and services of three days shearing.

The holding of Roger Holynce 17s Service 4 capons and 4 days shearing.

The holder of Alexander Grene 15s Service of 4 capons and 4 days shearing.

The holding of Nicholas Cowper 17s 6d, Service 3 capons, 3 days shearing and 4d of silver.

The holding of Ralph Graystand 6s 8d.
