John's son, Warine, appears to have succeeded in or about that year. In Dec 1288, John de Clayton and Warine his son attested a local charter [Add. MS. 32109, fol. 22] Then followed Robert de Clayton 1302, and John (perhaps a brother of Robert), who died in 1312, holding lands, &c. in Clayton of Sir Henry de Lea by knights' service and payment of 6d. a year in the name of 'sake, bode and fode,' and 12d. for castle-guard [Lancs. Inq. p.m., i, 3].
