Family: Margaret Unknown

Main Events

  • Biography: On 28 January 1373 at Westminster, there was a commission to the mayor and bailiffs of the city of Lincoln, Walter de Kelby, John de Sutton, John de Welton of Lincoln, Roger de Tiryngton, Ralph de Thresk, John de Hudilston of Lincoln, Nicholas de Cameryngham and William de Snelleston, appointed to distrain all and singular of the said town for the making of a barge which the King lately commended the mayor and others to have made at their charges by 1 April next.
    In 1376-77 he was involved in a dispute along with many other corn and wool merchants of Lincoln and the port of Boston with factors, proctors and fellows of the city of Florence in Italy. On 10 March 1378 at Westminster, licence was issued for the alienation in mortmain by William de Snelleston of Lincoln, John Lee Chaplain, Simon de Thorneton chaplain, Richard de Lyndesey, Robert de Ledes of Lincoln, and Peter de Leggesby chaplain, for a fine of 26 marks by them paid, of six messuages, a shop, garden, and 21s 4d of rent in Lincoln and its suburb, held in free burgage, and the reversion of other messuages there similarly held, which, on the death of the respective tenants for life, revert to them, viz: one messuage upon the deaths of John son of Christiana Guest (?) and Joan his wife, two messuages upon the death of Agnes, late the wife of Roger de Tatesdale, and a shop upon the death of Ciceley de Blaunkney, to a chaplain to celebrate divine service daily in the church of St. benedict, Lincoln, for the souls of Roger de Tetesale of Lincoln, John Lucas, Agnes his first wife, and Agnes, second wife of the said Roger, his father and mother, according to the ordinance of then said William de Snelleston and the rest.
    In 1383 there was a strange order made to the Sheriff of Lincoln that 40 marks be paid to William de Snelleston and John Norman and 20 pounds to Robert Messyngham and Alexander Herle because a previous Mayor of Lincoln, Hugh Garwelle had made exemptions in exchange for 40 marks in the case of Mayor and 20 pounds in the case of bailliff that they should never be made mayor or bailliff and be dicharged for the rest of their lives and that they were afterward put in office contrary to those exemptions. Evidently Hugh argued that the money had been put to the public purse not into his own, and this was found to be true. So, the Westminster Council made the order as above with the proviso that William and the others shall by election be put in any office in the city, those exemptions not withstanding. ( This all sounds like corruption to me ! ).

    In 1383, he is named as the current Mayor of Lincoln, on the occasion of the King ( Richard II ) ordering the Mayor ( William de Snelleston ) and coroners of Lincoln to arrest Simon de Messyngham for, while being Mayor himself, discharging divers citizens of bearing the offices of mayor or bailiff, taking from them sums of money and bonds ( Close Roll 7 Richard II m.36d ). In 1384, William was granted 4 pounds expenses ( Close Roll 7 Richard II M.1d ). In the same year, William and others were commissioned to levy and collect the tithe - according to the Fine Roll 8 Richard II m. 18. In 1385, there is a record in the Close Roll 8 Richard II m.20 of an order from the king to William de Snelleston and other commissioners to collect a tax ( the tenth ) granted to the king by the citizens and burgesses in the parliament. The order includes an instruction
    or the commissioners not to interfere or meddle in the collection. [:CR:].
  • Residence: William De Snelleston resided in Lincoln about 1373.4
  • Occupation: He was a merchant in Lincoln in 1376.5
  • Occupation: He was a Mayor/Bailiff.
  • Probate: The estate of William De Snelleston was probated on 23 February 1394 in Stowe Park.
  • Death: He died in 1394.
  • Burial: William De's remains were buried in 1394 in the parish church graveyard, St. Botolph's, Wykford, Lincoln.
  • Marriage: William De Snelleston and Margaret Unknown were married in an unknown place.

Apparently the lands were being released to hold in mortgage. I am not quite sure of who is releasing ( release or re-lease ? ) the lands to or from whom. Any bright ideas anybody ?

William Snelston1

M, #6695, Deceased, b. before 1505, d. after 1530

Main Events

  • Birth: William Snelston was born before 1505.
  • Biography: Accordig to Earwaker, a deed dated 21 Henry VIII (1529-30) a recovery was suffered against William Snelston "of the manor of Snelston" 6 messuages, 4 cottages, 100 acres of land etc in Snelston, Rostherne, Peover, Chelford and Marthal. It has been stated by whom I know not, that an heiress of this family married an ancestor of the Parkers of Astle who came to hold the greater part of these lands at various times; no evidence of a marriage of the Snelson heiress to the Parkers has survived.
    On the other hand, Earwaker ( page 363 Vol II ) thinks that Dr. Ormerod has made a mistake her, as no evidence has been found. [:CR:].
  • Residence: He resided in Snelston Manor, Cheshire, about 1530 [ITAL:]A recovery was suffered against William Snelston of the Manor of Snelston, 6 messuages, 4 cottages, 100 acres of land &c in Snelston, Rostherne, Peover, Chelford and Marthal.[:ITAL].2
