Rixton with Glazebrook
Over the course of 132 years, the Rixton family may have been in possession as early as the beginning of Henry I's reign. Little can be discovered concerning them; the name Alan de Rixton occurs from 1200 to 1332, so that several successive lords of the manor must have borne it.
If one reads footnote 8 under Rixton with Glazebrook and breaks it down it appears that there were at least 6 Alan de Rixtons.
