About Farleton Manor from british-history.ac.uk

In 1066 FARLETON was one of the manors held by Chetel in Bentham. (fn. 1) Later it was added to the lordship or barony of Hornby, (fn. 2) and was included in a grant of six plough-lands made by Adam de Montbegon to GeofFrev de Valoines. A small portion, assessed as I oxgang ofland, was given to Ellis de Wennington. The tenure in each case was by knight's service. (fn. 3)

The former grant, the manor proper, descended like Cantsfield fora time, (fn. 4) but soon after 1300 came to the Harringtons of Aldingham, and in 1306 the manor was in dispute between John son of Robert de Harrington and John son of Walter de Cansfield. (fn. 5) This manor was granted to a younger son, who made it his residence, (fn. 6) and was known as Sir John de Harrington of Farleton; by his wife Katherine he had portions of the manors of Bolton-le-Moors, Chorley and Aighton. Sir John died in 1359 holding the manor of Farleton of John de Harrington of Aldingham by the service of a rose yearly and performing suit at the court of Hornby from three weeks to three weeks, the manor being held of Robert de Nevill of Hornby by knight's service. (fn. 7) Robert de Harrington, the son and heir, died abroad in 1361, his heir being a younger brother Nicholas, aged sixteen years. (fn. 8) William son of Nicholas by his marriage acquired the lordship of Hornby, but in 1411 made a settlement of the paternal manors of Farleton, Chorley, &c. (fn. 9) From this time the manor is recorded among the Hornby manors, as in the Mounteagle inquisitions and later (fn. 10) ; it also was claimed and apparently held by the heirs male of the Harrington family.

6 John younger son of Sir John de Harrington of Aldingham is named in 1336; Final Conc, ii, 195.
