  • Two of the offspring of that union were Robert and Ellen. Robert* married Katherine, daughter of Sir Thomas Haryngton, of Brierley, and Ellen was first wedded to Sir Richard Molineux, son and heir of Sir William, who was son and heir of Sir John Molineux, living in the reign of Edward the 3rd. By Sir Richard, Ellen had two sons and three daughters, and becoming a widow in the year 1397, was afterwards married
  • Pg.40
  • to Sir James Haryngton, a younger brother of Sir Thomas of Brierley. On the occasion of this her second marriage Ellen seems to have been well dowered, .... etc.
  • The only issue of this second marriage, of which we have any note, was Richard Haryngton, who afterwards married Mabel Bradeshage, or Bradshaw, of Bradeschag, .... etc.
  • Pg.182
  • (A1) Of Sir Nicholas Haryngton, of Farleton, we have nought of interest to relate, and his brother John having already been spoken of, we will pass on to his son,
  • (A2) Sir James Haryngton; and as, at different periods, we have four members of the family similarly named, care is necessary to avoid confusing them. This first-mentioned Sir James was the knight who married HELEN, daughter of Sir THOMAS URSWICK, of Uprawcliffe and Badsworth, about the year 1406, and by that union obtained lands in Quassington and Bermingham, and a moiety of the Badsworth property which had to the the Urswicks from the Hertforths. His brother, viz.,
  • (B) Sir William Haryngton, knight of the noble order of the Garter, and "knight banneret" or standard bearer at the battle of Agincourt, where he fought and fell, married Margaret, daughter and heiress of Sir Robert Nevile, of Hornby. .... etc.
