• Background Information: 859
There appears to be no record as to the means whereby the manor of Burton came into the possession of Roger de Burton, younger son of Roger de Aston of Ashton under Lyne, co. Lancaster. There is evidence that Roger de Burton, son of Roger de Aston, married a daughter of Roger de Croft, lord of the adjoining vill of Dalton. (Victoria Hist. of Lancs., VIII, 183) See the reference in the records of Burton under the date 1292. Consequently Burton would appear to have come to the local family by the marriage of Roger de Aston to the heiress of the previous owner. The only possible light as to the identity of this family of earlier owners is contained in a fine of lands in the Lancashire vills of Wrightington, Parbold and Dalton, made in 1202, by which Margaret, formerly the wife of Richard de Lancastre, released to Robert son of Bernard (of Goosnargh), Orm son of Roger (de Aston) and his brother Roger (de Burton), her right of dower in those places. (Lancs. Fines (Record Soc.), pt. i, 18) In 1195 Robert son of Bernard had made partition of an inheritance of five carucates, to which he, Roger de Burton and Orm de Aston had recently succeeded, by releasing to Roger and Orm his claim in half the vill of Wrightington, one carucate in Parbold and half a carucate in Dalton. (Feet of Fines (Pipe Roll Soc. XVII), p. 50) It is not altogether impossible that the wife of Roger de Aston and mother of Roger de Burton was sister and coheir of Richard de Lancaster, who died before 1195.

1195-1210 Roger de Wrightington, son of Orm de Aston, gave to the canons of Cockersand a parcel of land in Wrightington, co. Lanc. [Chartul. of Cockersand (Chetham Soc.), 504].

1200-16 Roger son of Roger de Burton in Kendale, for the health of the soul of Helewise de Lancastre, gave to the same canons 2 a. land and a messuage on the west side of Holstorth, an assart (or ridding) between land of the church and land of Robert son of Waldeve towards the north, with common of the vill for six score sheep, 32 beasts, eight horses or mares, and 48 goats or swine. Witnesses: Henry de Redeman, Ralph de Bedum, Thomas his son, Gilbert de Crott, Henry his son; ib., 1004.

• Background Information. 827
The vills of Wrightington and Parbold were probably from its formation members of the barony of Manchester, and the connexion was recognized down to the 17th century [Court Leet Rec. iv, 148, &c.]. Albert Grelley the elder, who died about 1162, gave them, together with the adjacent Dalton in West Derby Hundred, to Orm son of Ailward in marriage with his daughter Emma, to be held by the service of one knight's fee [Lancs. Inq. and Extents (Rec. Soc. Lancs. and Ches.), i, 55; in 1212 'the heirs of that Orm held' the land]. From Orm descended the family of Kirkby of Kirkby Ireleth [Farrer, Lancs. Pipe R. 405], of whom Wrightington continued to be held, at least in part. The Kirkbys granted it out, and in 1195, probably by marriage with co-heirs, the group of manors was held in moiety by Robert son of Bernard de Goosnargh and by Roger de Burton and Orm de Ashton, his brother.
