bullet  Information about this person:

• Background Information. 1067
Dolfin of Appletreewick, son of Gospatric, had three sons, Thorfin, Swayne and Uchtred de Hebden of Coiston and Burnsall, who became the lord of the Manor of Hebden around 1145.

~ The Hebden Family

• Background Information. 1068
"The traditional pedigree of the Thoresby family was due to a Cottonian roll, compiled in the time of Henry VI and now lost, which was printed by Roger Gale in 1722. The descent given there was from Gospatric son of Archil through his son Dolfin. Both A. S. Ellis and Farrer were not satisfied of the existence of a son of Gospatric named Dolfin. A charter, however, is now available, cited in the Hebden section below, in which Gospatric is described as the grandfather of Uctred son of Dolfin."

[Hebden Section - The family descended in the male line from Dolfin son of Gospatric son of Archil. Until recently no proof had been found that Dolfin was a son of Gospatric, as stated in a fifteenth-century genealogy. But a charter is now available recording that Roger de Mowbray enfeoffed Uctred son of Dolfin of the land of Uctred's grandfather Gospatric in Ilton (par. Masham); the date being 1138-?1145.]
