• Background Information. 826
In 1212 Hugh son of Gilbert held the manor of Culchet, by knight's service, of William le Boteler, as four plough-lands paying 4 marks a year. A certain Reynold had held it of Pain de Vilers, and as nothing is said as to the origin of his tenure, he may have been in possession when the Warrington fee was granted to Pain. (fn. 7)
Gilbert de Culcheth, probably a son or grandson of Hugh son of Gilbert, held the manor in 1242. He was killed in 1246 by unknown malefactors, and the township was fined because it made no pursuit. As Gilbert de Culcheth is named as defendant in the same roll, he must have been killed in or just before 1246. His widow, Dame Cecily de Layton, in 1275 at Thornton in the Fylde demised to Richard de Culcheth, her son-in-law, her dower in the mill at Culcheth, and granted that her tenants should grind there as in Gilbert de Culcheth's life.
Gilbert de Culcheth left four infant daughters as co-heirs, Margery, Elizabeth, Ellen, and Joan, who became wards of the lord of Warrington; and in course of time William le Boteler granted their marriage to Hugh de Hindley. Hugh married them to his own four sons, and Culcheth was divided among them, its four quarters becoming the manors of Richard de Hindley, who took the name of Culcheth; Adam, called de Peasfurlong, and later de Hindley; Robert, called de Risley; and Thomas, called de Holcroft.
To Elizabeth, the second daughter of Gilbert de Culcheth, was assigned Peasfurlong. By her husband, Adam de Peasfurlong, she had two daughters, Margery and Beatrice, the former of whom carried this quarter of Culcheth to her husband, William son of Richard de Radcliffe of Radcliffe.
