Note. Regarding the burial of Sir Robert de Clifford, 1st Lord Clifford at Shap Abbey. Alton Rogers received an e-mail of January 15, 2007 from Jean Jackson with the Shap Local History Society (firstname.lastname@example.org) regarding the burial of Robert de Clifford at Shap Abbey. She said "There is a book called 'Shappe in Bygone Days' which was written by our Vicar in 1898 which has a chapter on the Abbey of St. Mary Magdalene. He was a historian and the following is an extract from the chapter: Next is a presbytery. Immediately on the left is an ambry or cupboard for the service books and sacred vessels. Below is a gravestone, which may be over the body of Robert de Clifford, who fell at Bannockburn. There is no evidence except the incised sword, which indicates that the grave is of one slain in battle. A note under this says 'On Sunday June 24th 1314, in his 40th year. His body was sent to King Edward at Berwick.' Another Robert died May 20th 1345 (sic) and is probably buried here."

I'm new to English titles and such - is there a reference that would show me how "of Skipton in Craven" turns into "Lord of the Honour of Skipton" & why it should be singled out from the litany of places listed by Richardson?
