About Isabel de Belgrave, of Belgrave

Sir Robert Legh, knt. of Adlington, sheriff of Cheshire, 17 and 22 Richard II. married Isabella, daughter and heiress of Sir Thomas Belgrave, knt. by Joan, his wife, dau. and heiress of Sir Robert Pulford, and left with a dam Joanna, m. first, to Ralph Davenport, of Davenport; and, secondly, to John Legh, of High Legh, a son and successor,

Robert Legh, of Adlington. It being deemed necessary that this gentleman should give up his claims to the estates of the Pulford family, in favour of Sir Thomas Grosvenor, relinquishment thereof was made with the following unusual ceremonies, devised, probably, from a wish to add to its impressiveness and notoriety. "On the 24th of April, 1412, Sir Thomas le Grosvenor, knt. Robert, son of Sir Robert Legh, knt. and Henry de Birtheles, counsel of Sir Thomas le Grosvenor, read, in Macklesfield chapel, a series of deeds relating to successive settlements, by the Pulford family, of the manors of Buerton juxla Salghton, Clavcrton, and Pulford, the adTowson of Pulford, lands in Middle Aldesey, Crooke Aldesey, and Cawartliyn, the fourth part of the manor of Chollegh, and the eighth part of the manor of Broxton. By these settlements, it appears that the said estates were settled on John, son of Robert de Pulford; remainder for life to Johanna, his mother; remainder to Robert his son, and his wife Isabella; remainder to their issue; remainder, in default of issue, to the right heirs of John.

After the reading of these deeds, it was stated, that Sir Robert Legh, and Isabella his wife, and their son Robert Legh, pretended a right to these estates, under a settlement by Thomas de Belgrave and Joan his wife (daughter of Robert, and sister and heir of Joan de Pulford); and, to settle family differences, that it had been agreed that Sir Thomas Grosvenor should take a solemn oath on the body of Christ, in the presence of twenty-four gentlemen, or as many as he wished.
