^Militibus and terras interlined.

-From no. 1434 it would seem
that it was not without much
ditficulty the archb. was able to
secure the service of John de
Lythegreyns as liis steward or
seneschal. He was a man of very
considerable experience in public
affairs. His name frequently
occurs in different commissions
entered on the Patent Rolls during
the latter part of the thirteenth
century. He occupied the im-
portant ofliccs of sheriff of North-
umberland (3-6 Edw. i) and York-
shire (1280-1285). Nothing, how-
ever, is known of his origin or
whence he derived his name. His
arms, gules, an orlc silver, over all
a bend gold (Archceologia ^liana,
3rd series, vi, 120),, implies some
close connection with house of
Balliol, which bore the same coat
unditferenced by the bend. The
earliest, and, indeed, the only other
person of his name, occurs in
27 Henry iii (1242-3), when it was
lound tliat Robert de Lithegraincs
had been murdered in the wapen-
take of Sadbcrge in south Durham,
very probably near Barnard Castle,
the chief scat of the Balliols. His
murderers were outlawed at the



suite of fiis widow Isoude (Two
Thirteenth Century Durham Assize
Rolls (Surtees Soc. cxxii), p. 6).
On June 10, 1282, the king ratified
a demise for nine years by Nicholas
de Meynil to John de Lythegrayns
of a moiety of the lands, etc., of
Andrew de Feugers in Castelleving-
ton, late the pledge of Hagin the
Jew, which pledge the king had
granted to the said Nicholas tor his
late services in the army of Wales,
until he should raise 200 marks
from the aforesaid lands (Cal. uf
Pat. Rolls (1281-1292), p. 25). On
Feb. 19, 1290, Lythegreyns had
licence to assign liis manor of
Lazenby, near Northallerton, to six
chaplains to celebrate in the chapel
of St. Mary there (Ibid., p. 347),
and Yorkshire Inquisitions, ii, 90).
On 17 kal. Nov. (Oct. 16), 1293, the
bishop of Lincoln, Oliver Sutton,
granted an indulgence of forty days
to all persons going to that chapel
for devotional purposes and con-
tributing to its support. The in-
dulgence says the chapel had
been lately built by Sir John de
Lythegreyns, knt., in a hospital at
Leysingbv near Northalverton
[Reg. Sutton. Mem. fo. llOd). On
Aug. 17, 1295, he was appointed
