• Background Information. 730
The family of Pincerna took the name of Pincerna from the office of Butler, which they held under the earls of Chester. The office of Pincerna, seems to have been one of great honor. They appear for the first time in a written record in the Domesday survey, 1086. Through the marriage, the family acquired Warrington sometime after that.

Richard Pincerna appears in the Domesday Survey as holding the manor of Pulton near Pulford in Cheshire. It reads "Richard Pincerna holds of the earl Poytone. Edwin held it, and was a free man." His name again appears, in the time of Hugh Lupus earl of Chester, as a witness to William Malbedeng's gift to St. Werburgh's. His name appears as "Pincernarius." In 1119, he also gave to St. Werburgh the church of St. Olave in Chester and two houses in the market-place of that city.

Richard left two sons, Robert, his heir and William, who witnessed a charter of earl Hugh Lupus in 1093 and another charter of earl Randle Meschines to the city of Chester.
