    Will dated 10 , proved 31 Oct 1391.
    From the Everinghams their Lepton fee at Kirkheaton passed to Sir William Elys of Parlington whose son Robt Elys of Everingham died without issue, having previously granted part of his Lepton estate to his kinsman [Richard Elys of Lepton?]
    The other portion fee reverted to a surviving branch of the Everinghams and decended to Sir Henry Everingham Kt, Lord of Birkin who sold his lands to Richard Beaumont of Whitley Hall.
    [See Thomas Ellis b abt 1488, and possible Lepton conection.]
    In 1379 Willelmus Elys, Esquier, & uxor was the highest tax payer in the Subsidy Rolls (Poll Tax) for Parlington. They paid vj.s. viij.d. [ie 6 shillings and 8 pence). The next was Thomas de Ledes, ffranklań, & uxor, paying iij.s. iiij.d. [3s 4d), and the rest were less than a shilling.
    Evidently the family remained at Kiddal for another 300 years:
    A prominent Barwick landlord was William Ellis, the owner of Kiddal Hall. Although he was described as 'of London' and he married there, some of his children were baptised at Barwick between 1691 to 1696, so perhaps he lived at Kiddal during this time. In 1672, the house was taxed for nine hearths. His financial problems led eventually to the renting out and ultimately to the sale of the Kiddal estate by the Ellis family.

    The Gascoignes were of Parlington.
    Richard GASCOIGNE married the dau & heir of Henry ELLIS or "ELYS". Their dau Elizabeth married Thomas EVERINGHAM (b.~1314)Page: v.3, p 275
