Excerpt from Two Compoti Of the Lancashire and Cheshire Mars of Henry De Lacy, Earl of Lincoln: XXIV. And XXXIII. Edward I The very interesting and valuable accounts here printed relate to the Lancashire and Cheshire estates of Henry de Lacy, Earl of Lincoln, one of the most conspicuous and powerful barons of the realm, whose influence on the history of the two counties Palatine was of high moment. He was Lord of the Hor of Clitheroe, Baron of Halton, and hereditary Constable of Chester; moreover, it was he who suggested to the monks of Stanlaw Abbey to remove into the valley of the Calder. He owned great estates in Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, and elsewhere; and it was in reference to him and his ancestors that Camden said that Lincolnshire glorieth in the Earls which have borne title thereof. His parentage and ancestry may be seen in the annexed pedigree. He was a Ward of Henry III., and was brought up at his Court.
