John. Westcote, a part of the Lordship of the Barons of
Stafford, was by them enfeoffed to Eobert Fitz Otes, to hold
of them at a certain rent, ante 38 Henry III. Subsequently
to this, the name is found variously spelt, Otts, Oates, anil
Oattes, and the manor of Otes, in the parish of High Laver, co.
Essex, is stated to have been so called from John Otes, who
with others, held the manor of Little Laver, in the same co.
in the time of Edward II. At what precise period the Otes-
family first settled in Yorkshire in uncertain, but ic is of
considerable standing in that co. The title deeds of the
Shibden Hall Estate in Southowram, show that it belonged.
12 Henry IV., to John Otes, who resided there at that time,
and to his descendants till the reign of Henry Vlll., whilst
his kinsman Bryan Otes, some of whose descendants held
property in Northowram, possessed considerable estates at
Halifax, 21 Henry Vlll. About this period others of the
family appear as landed proprietors in the same district of
the West Hiding, amongst whom are found the immediate
ancestors of the present family.
