  • William HARRINGTON (5º B. Harrington of Aldingham)
  • Born: ABT 1390, probably Aldingham, Lancashire, England
  • Died: 10 Mar 1458, Gleaston Hall, Aldingham, Lancashire, England
  • Buried: Urswick Church, Lancashire, England
  • Notes: 2d son, succeeded his brother John, then ae. 26, and is by some believed to have built, or rebuilt Gleaston Castle, a mile and a half from Aldingham Church. Like his brother, he fought in the French wars, and there has naturally arisen some confusion between him and his kinsman Sir William Harington of Hornby, Lancs. He crossed to France in the Duke of Gloucester's train before Agincourt, and probably took part in the battle. In the next campaign, in 1417, he attended his brother John, being distinguished as Sir William Harington of Somerset; and, as Lord Harington, fought in the Sieges-of Rouen 1418-19, Melun 1420, and Meaux 1421. He was summoned to Parliament from 26 Feb 1420/1 to 26 Sep 1439, by writs directed Willelmo de Haryngton'. In 1428, as William Harington, Knight, of the diocese of Exeter, he had Papal licence for himself and his wife Margaret to choose a confessor. Later he seems to have resided in Furness; and in 1431 he made an agreement, being styled "William lord of Harington," with the Abbot of Furness concerning the bounds between Leese and Dalton; and two years later, as " William Harington, lord of Aldingham," obtained leave for a passage way from his castle of Gleaston to Barray across the abbey's land. A feoffment of his Cumberland estate was made in Sep 1448, and another of his Lancashire manors and the castle of Gleaston in 1450, Sir William Bonville being one of the feoffees. He married, in or BEF 1423, Margaret, daughter of Sir John Hill, of Hill's Court, near Exeter, a judge of the King's Bench from 1389 to 1407. She predeceased him, and was buried at Conishead, as appears by her husband's will. He died s.p.m., 3 (or 10) Mar 1457/8. (Complete Peerage VI:318-9).
