""I. Eustace, who was probably bora about 1140, and was the first of four successive Lords of Watford, in Northamptonshire, bearing the same name of Eustace, and given above, seems almost indisputably to have been the Eustachius de Arderae who granted Watford Church to the Abbey of St. James, at Northampton (Bridges, i, 501, from the Register) ; which grant was followed by donations to Sulby Abbey by Eustace, son of Eustace de Watford. (Ibid, i, 557 ; and Mon. Ang. \i, 90-1, from Pat. 9, Edw. II.)

n. Eustace de Arden, or de Watford, the next in Yiucent's Pedigree, was in possession 1 John, 1199, when he impleaded Wilham Fitz Adam, his tenant, at Watford (Curia Reg., i, 400 ; ii, 42, 100) ; and occurs 3 John, as paying scutage for one knighfs fee in Northamptonshire (Rot. Cancellar., p. 87),-Eustace de Arden and Eustace de Watford occurring previously, in the second and third scutage of Rich. I. He was deceased in 1213, as by writ of Nov. 7, 15 John, to the Sheriff of Nortliampton, to set out the dower of his widow, Hawysia, in Watford and Silvesworth, the Earl of Chester being security for her not remarrj'ing without license. (Clause Rolls, 1213.)

The said Eustace had issue, Eustace, son and heir, and John de Arden, or Arderne, afterwards Lord of Aldford. ""

""The first Charter fixes John de Arden as son of that Eustace de Arden, Lord of Watford, who was dead in 1213, namely the second Eustace, and as brother of the thu-d Eustace, who died in or about 1221. To this last Eustace John de Arden re-grants land in Wat- ford by the third Charter (1209-1228), and is identified as the Lord of Aldford, not merely by the locality w'here it was executed, as shewn by the Cheshire witnesses of it, but by that seal of the three garbs being attached, with which John de Ardcrne successively seals his confirmation of Thornton, ^'part of Aldford Fee, to Peter, the Earl of Chester's Clerk, and to Ranulph son of Peter. "^ ""

""his marriage, it appears from a fine at Chester,

28 Hen. Ill, that Walkelyn de Arderne then made partition with Fulco de Orreby of his wdfe's family estates, ha\'ing release from the said Fulco to him and Agnes his wife, and their heirs, of the vills of Uptox, Fkaxkby, "Willavestox, and Alvaxdelegh.* This lady was daughter and heiress of Philip de Okreby the younger, by his wife Leuca de Moxtalt, ""
