(fn. 6) Worsley, as half a plough-land, was held of the kingby the Barton family in thegnage, (fn. 7) and of them by afamily which took the local name. The earliest knownmember of it is Richard de Worsley, who in 1203was defending his right to twenty acres of wood inWorsley, (fn. 8) and as Richard son of Elias in 1206 gave amark for a writ. (fn. 9) Six years later he held a plough-land of Gilbert de Notton and his wife Edith deBarton, half of the land being in Worsley. (fn. 10) Itappears that Hugh Putrell had granted 'to Richardson of Elias de Worsley the manors of Worsley andHulton, i.e. half a plough-land in Worsley, whichwas the whole of Worsley, and half a plough-land inHulton, rendering for all services 10s. for Worsleyand 6s. 8d. for Hulton,' these being the rents paidby Hugh to the king or chief lord.

WARDLEY, the possession of Jordan de Worsleyin the first half of the 14th century, has been mentioned above. Jordan held part of Wardley of theHospitallers by a rent of 8d.; (fn. 78) he had otherlands in Wardley and Worsley, held of the lordof Worsley. (fn. 79) He left an only daughter Margaret as his heir; she was a minor and in ward toRichard de Worsley. In November 1330 a numberof the neighbours carried her off from Richard'shouse and married her to Thurstan son of Richardde Tyldesley. (fn. 80) She was still living in 1401, whenin conjunction with her son Thomas she made asettlement with the Masseys regarding her estate inWorsley.

WALKDEN, down to the 15th century, appears tohave had a wider meaning than at present, spreadinginto Farnworth and Little Hulton. (fn. 123) It also gave asurname to a local family. (fn. 124) Northdene in Worsley—probably 'the Deans' in Swinton, north of LittleHoughton—was another estate. (fn. 125) Many of the neighbouring landowners, as appearsfrom the inquisitions, held estates also in Worsley andSwinton. (fn. 126)Until the end of the 17th century allthe farms in the district were held on life leases;somewhat earlier it was customary for the leases tocontain a provision that the tenants should rear oneor more hunting dogs for the lord. The principal landowner in 1786 was the Duke ofBridgewater, owning apparently over half the land;Samuel Clowes had a large estate at Booths, and thesmaller owners included the Rev. Walter Bagot,James Hilton, and — Starkie. (fn. 127) In 1686 an agreement was made as to the inclosureof Swinton Moor and Hodge Common in the parishof Eccles. (fn. 128) Wal...
The chapel of ELLEN BROOK (fn. 130) owes its foundation to the lords of Worsley, and has remained to the present daya donative in their gift. The Abbot of Stanlaw, asrector of Eccles, between 1272 and 1295, granted hislicence to Richard de Worsley to have a free chantryin his chapel of Worsley, provided that no loss wascaused to the mother church, to which 6d. was tobe paid yearly as oblations. (fn. 131) There is no continuous record of the chapel's existence, but in 1549Sir Richard Brereton complained that his son Richard,among other lawless deeds, had recently taken achalice from his chapel in the manor of Worsley,which chalice the inhabitants had purchased for usein divine service. (fn. 132) The fate of the chapel in theReformation period is uncertain, but as the lords ofWorsley appear to have conformed to the Elizabethansystem without difficulty, service was probably continued in it with but little interruption. DameDorothy Legh in 1638 left the interest of £50 for itsmaintenanc...
