From North division: Withernwick', A History of the County of York East Riding: Volume 7: Holderness Wapentake, Middle and North Divisions (2002):


William le Gros, count of Aumale (d. 1179), was said to have given 8 carucates in Withernwick to Peter de Fauconberg, whose son Walter had inherited by 1202 and whose grandson (Sir) Peter de Fauconberg defended his title in 1231. (fn. 75)

The Fauconbergs, Lords Fauconberg from the late 13th century, (fn. 76) retained the estate, usually called a manor but sometimes reckoned part of the neighbouring manor of Rise. (fn. 77)

Much of the land had apparently been alienated by c. 1300, when Walter, Lord Fauconberg, (d. 1304) held in Withernwick c. 2 carucates in demesne and had bond tenants with 1½ carucate. (fn. 78)

In 1316, in the lifetime of his son Walter, Lord Fauconberg, (d. 1318), the lords of Withernwick were said to be Anastasia, widow of that Walter's son Sir Walter (d. 1314), and John de Fauconberg, presumably Sir Walter's brother and later Lord Fauconberg (d. 1349). (fn. 79)

The "Fauconberg" family connection Following the death of Peter de Brus III in 1272, his four sisters became co-heiresses of the de Brus estates. Agnes, the eldest, married Walter de Fauconberg and took, as her share, the manors of Skelton, Marske, Upleatham and Kirkleatham [5] Lucia, the second sister, married Marmaduke de Thweng taking with her the manors of Yarm, Danby and Brotton. Margaret, the third sister, married Robert de Ross and had, as her share, the barony of Kendall; whilst Laderina, the youngest, married John de Bellew and had for her share the lordship of Carlton amongst other holdings. Thus the estate was split up and Skelton Castle passed into the hands of… Walter de Fauconberg (died 1304) = Agnes de Brus [6] The estates now passed in direct line through the Fauconbergs. Walter de Fauconberg (died 1318) John de Fauconberg (died 1349) while the castle and estate were in the hands of John, in the 13th year of the reign of Edward II, John obtained a licence from the king to move the market from Sunday to Saturday. [6] Walter de Fauconberg (died 1361) Sir Thomas de Fauconberg He inherited two-thirds of the estate, while his mother, Isobel, received the other third. In 1403 the estate, by reason of Sir Thomas's insanity, was put into the custody of King Henry IV who, later, placed it in the custody of Robert and John Conyers. In 1407 the estate was settled on… Walter de Fauconberg (died 1407) He was the son of Sir Roger de Fauconberg, who was a brother of Sir Thomas. William died in the same year that he inherited the estate, which then passed to his daughter, Joan. [6] Joan Fauconberg (died 1490) = Sir William Neville (died 1462) She inherited the estate as an infant. She was described as an idiot from birth. The castle passed, via her marriage, to her husband who was honored with the title Earl of Kent by Edward IV in 1461. They made alterations to the castle in 1428. [6]
