Lancaster and Farleton in Kendale, co. Westmorland. He married (lst) before September 1369, Isabel English, daughter and heiress of William English, Knt., of Appleby, Little Strickland, and Hasket, Westmorland, Knight of the Shire for Westmoreland, by Margaret, daughter of Richard le Brun. She was born about 1345. They had three sons, William, Knt., James, Knt., and Nicholas, and five daughters, Isabel (first), Margaret (wife of Richard Huddleston, Knt.), Agnes (wife of Richard Sherburne), Mary (wife of John Redman), and Isabel (second). Isabel was co-heiress c. 1369 to her uncle, Robert le Brun, by which she inherited the manor of Drumburgh (in Bowness), Bowness, Cardurnock, etc., and a one-third share in the manors of Bothel (in Torpenhow), Beaumont, and Brunskaith, co.
