About Gospatric Fitzarkyl

Gospatric de Rigton ~ The Publications of the Thoresby Society, Vol. IX, p. 113, Gospatric the son of Arkil married a daughter of Dolfin son of Thorfin and was the father of Dolphyn , who had three sons: Torphyn, Swayn, and Ughtred. Gospatric was the son of the than Arkill. In 1068, Arkill, being the most powerful chief of the Northumbrians, made a treat of peace with the Conqueror, who accepted his son, Gospatric, as a hostage for his fidelity. At this time Gospatric was already of age and a had been a landowner in the days of king Edward. Arkill joined Edgar Atheling in a desperate attack on the royal fortess at York where William Malet was governor. They were surprised by the king, many of them slain or taken prisoner, but Arkill was among those who excaped. Arkill's estates were undoubtable forfeited, and Gospatric, likely still a hostage, would have been sacrificed had Gospatric not found favor with the king. Gospatric was the only Englishman in Yorkshire to have sufficient favor with the Conqueror to be allowed to keep any of his private estate. His lands were divided among his sons, who sunk to be under-tenants of what they retained. Gospatric married a daughter of Dolfin, son of Thorfin. Their sons were Gospatric, only mentioned by Simeon of Durham, but perhaps the father of Thurstan; Uchlred of Allerston and Kayton, and Dolfin of Staveley and Thoresby.~ Yorkshire Archaeological Journal, Vol. IV, pp. 384-387
