In the prior thread concerning Lathom of Lathom, it was noted that Sir Robert de Lathom (Sheriff of Lancashire, 1249-1255, 1264-1265) was ancestor of the late Queen Mother and others by his wife Amicia de Alfreton. In the Commendations of Beauchief Abbey, we find particular mention' Of Robert Fitz-Ranulph, canon and founder of this place, who gave us four churches, namely, Norton, Alfreton, Wymmdeswold, and Edwalton, for whom a solemn service shall be said in the convent, ...' [1] Robert fitz Ranulf de Alfreton is best known (so to speak) for his donations to Beauchief Abbey in expiation for his involvement in the murder of Thomas Becket, Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1170 [2].


Following is a pedigree which shows the descent of Lathom of Lathom, and Chaworth of Alfreton (later of Wiverton) from Robert fitz Ranulf. The descents from these families lead to a myriad of well-known descendants, both emigrants (Jane Lowe for one) and non-emigrants (the late Queen Mother for example).
