Norman Settlement: lll. - Barony of Kendal.

Gilbert FitzReinfrid and Helwise, his wife, had one son, William, who took his mother's name and called himself William de Lancaster; he married Agnes de Brus, and died without issue. He had three sisters: Helwise, who married Peter de Brus of Skelton; Alice, who married William de Lindesay, and Serota, who married Alan de Multon, and dying without issue goes out of the story. The barony of Kendal was thus early divided into two moieties, one of which was " heired " by the De Bruses and the other by the De Lindesays. The descent of these moieties we must now briefly trace, leaving the curious in the minutiae of pedigrees to refer for further information to Nicolson and Bum, or Hodgson. The moiety inherited by the elder sister, Helwise, became presently further subdivided into two quarters, known for reasons which will appear presently as the Marquis and Lumley Fees. The moiety inherited by the younger sister, Alice, remained more entire, and acquired the name of the Richmond Fee ; we will take it first.

Alice de Lancaster married William Lindesay, and carried her moiety into that family; including her husband, four De Lindesays in direct succession enjoyed it, the last of whom, also named William, left an only daughter, Christian, married to an alien, Ingelram de Guisnes, Lord of Coucy in France ; by him she had two sons: William the elder, born in France, and therefore an alien incapable of inheriting landed estates in England; and Ingelram the younger, born in England, but who died without issue; this moiety of the barony of Kendal therefore escheated to the Crown.

Research Notes

NOTE: Some claim that William III de Lancaster and Agnes de Brus had NO ISSUE.[3] If this is to prevail over Scots Peerage, there is still an issue with parentage, as that source claims Hawise married a second time to Peter de Bruce-1130 and had Alice and another daughter Sarot.
