  • Note:

    Thomas de la River had a son and heir Thomas, on whose son Walter he settled the manor of Brandsby in 1527. Thomas, the father of Walter, however, came into possession, and the latter laid violent claim to his rights. Thomas complained that Walter and others entered upon his land, broke the windows of his cottages 'and such poore Implements and household stuf as the said poore tenants had in the said houses . . . the said ryotous persons in most vyolent manner dyd cast out of the said houses uppon the Donge hepe and other vyle places.' Walter denied the violent entry and pleaded the settlement, but it seems never to have been executed.
    In 1557 Thomas de la River the younger made a new settlement of the estates ar Brandsby. He had four illegitimate daughters, Jane, Thomasina, Eleanor, and Elizabeth. Of these Jane was married to Roger Cholmeley, Thomasina to his brother Richard, and Elizabeth to Francis Thynne.
    Brandsby was given by the Conqueror to Roger de Mowbray, and was held of that powerful baron by Nicholas de Riparia or de la Ryver, and by the latter name the family became known in later times.
    The Riparias were of Norman extraction, and first came into England with William the Conqueror. They were seated here from an early period.
    Richard de la Ryver was lord of Brandsby in the latter part of the 13th century, as we learn from Testa de Nevill, and in 1279, gave to the monks of Byland and their men, free passage through his wood of Brandsby. The manor and estate remained in the possession of this family until the reign of Queen Elizabeth, when Jane, daughter and co-heiress of Thomas de la River, conveyed the Brandsby and Brafferton estates in marriage to Roger Cholmeley, Esq.
