    William le Meschin, Lord of Copeland gained the title of Lord of Copeland.1

The priory of Austin canons, afterwards moved in 1151 (fn. 1) to Bolton, was originally founded at Embsay (fn. 2) in Skipton, by William Meschines and Cecilia de Romeli his wife, lady of Skipton, in 1120. (fn. 3) The foundation charter, (fn. 4) addressed to Archbishop Thurstan, records that they had given to Reynold, the prior, the church of Holy Trinity of Skipton, with the chapel of Carleton and the whole vill of 'Emmesey,' for a church of regular canons.

By a separate charter, (fn. 5) Cecilia de Romeli granted to the church of St. Mary and St. Cuthbert of Embsay, and the canons there, the whole vill of Kildwick, and her son-in-law William, nephew of the king of Scotland, and Aeliz de Romeli his wife, (fn. 6) confirmed to the church of Embsay the church of All Saints of Broughton in Craven.

In 1151, (fn. 7) with the consent of Aeliz de Romeli, then patroness, (fn. 8) the canons were moved to Bolton, where she gave, with consent of her son William, the capital manor of Bolton in exchange for other lands. This exchange was confirmed by Henry II. (fn. 9) A charter of Aeliz de Romeli, confirming the gifts of William de Meschines and her mother, gives full details of the boundaries of the lands given to the canons 'ecclesiæ tunc apud Embesiam, nunc apud Boelton commorantibus.' (fn. 10)
