Com.), 258] probably his son. Richard Darches, who was holding in 1284, [Feud. Aids, i, 84; See also Chan. Inq. p.m. 28 Edw. I, no. 44; Feud. Aids, i, 93, 118; Chan. Inq. p.m. Edw. II, file 88, no. 10; Abbrev. Rot. Orig. (Rec. Com.), i, 290] died about 1308 [Chan. Inq. p.m. Edw. II, file 9, no. 7.] and was followed by his son Simon. [Ibid.; Feud.
