A family bearing the local name is early found in possession of Farington, but the whole or larger part was surrendered to the abbot and acquired by William de Meols, whose son John de Farington, by his marriage with Avice daughter of Robert Bussel *, acquired a moiety of the manor of Leyland. Their estate also was known as the 'manor' of Farington. John was succeeded by his son William de Farington [Penwortham Priory, 17-20; Assize R. 424, m. 1 d] and his grandson William [Penwortham Priory, 18 note] ; the latter in 1348 obtained a grant of free warren in his demesne lands of Leyland and Farington, and licence to enclose a hundred acres of land and wood in those townships and make a park [Charter R. 143 , 22 Edw. III, m. 30, no. 41].
