Joan Haydock another wealthy landlowner from her heritage!       

The manor of HAYDOCK was a dependency or member of the fee of Newton. The first distinct notice of it is in 1168, when Orm de Haydock had paid two out of the 10 marks due from him to the aid for marrying the king's daughter. He granted land called Cayley to the Hospitallers.  His son Alfred took a surname from Ince, in which his demesne lay; and Haydock was divided between Hugh and William de Haydock, who were in possession in 1212.

The manor was held in moieties from an early time. The later Haydock family  descended from Hugh. William's descendants died or sold their interest in the middle of the 13th century  to Thurstan de Holland, whose son Robert held also, as it seems, a mesne lordship over the whole of Haydock.  This manor descended to the male heirs of Thurstan and his son Sir Robert, and lapsed to the Crown by the forfeiture of Henry, Duke of Exeter, in 1461. 

Hugh de Haydock had a son Gilbert, who married Alice daughter of Matthew de Bold, and received lands in Bold with her. Their son and heir was named Matthew, and in 1286 ten messuages, eight oxgangs and 4 acres of land in Haydock and Bold were settled on Matthew by his father, (fn. 15) and the moiety of the manor of Haydock was granted in 1292. Some other acts of Gilbert's are known; (fn. 17) he seems to have died about 1300. 

Matthew de Haydock lived till about 1322;  a number of his charters are extant, showing that he acquired fresh properties; one of these, in Walton le Dale, he gave to his son Hugh. His son Gilbert succeeded. 

He had a grant of free warren in Haydock and Bradley in 1344; also leave to make a park in Haydock. (By his wife Emma  there was a numerous offspring, but elder sons, named Matthew and Gilbert, seem to have died young,  and the heir to the manor was John de Haydock, who was in possession by 1358. 

He married Joan, daughter of Sir Thomas de Dutton,  and died 12 December 1387, holding the moiety of the manor of Haydock and lands there of Sir John de Holland of Thorpe Watervill in socage by a rent of 17s.; holding also various lands in Newton, Golborne, and Bold

His son and heir Gilbert was thirty years of age. 

 Of Sir Gilbert's children the heir was his daughter Joan, who carried this and other manors to the family of her first husband, Peter de Legh of Lyme in Cheshire. 

She afterwards married Sir Richard de Molyneux of Sefton, and her tomb is in Sefton Church.
