Kon Gilbert),

Makgaret de We.vnington, conveyed the lands in marriage,
about 4 Edward HI., to her husband, Richard de Merlet, or
MoRLET, of Great and Little Morley, co. Lancaster. In the
descendants of this alliance Wennington continued until the
year 1673, when, on their removal to Beamsley Hall, West
Rilling, CO. York, it was sold to the Mardens, of Gisburn, and
is now possessed by William Allen Francis Saunders, Esq.,
who is married to the dau. of a descendant of the ancient
possessor, Josias Morlet, Esq. of Beamsley.
