There is a short pedigree for Scargill in William Wheater; 'History of the Parishes of Serburn and Cawood'; page 177 @ http://books.google.com/books?id=G2cuAAAAMAAJ&pg=PA177 stating that Jane Scargill m. John Frobisher, she being a dau of William Scargill and Margaret Gascoigne. But the pedigree dates are incorrect, confuses several generations of William Scargill and omits others, thus raising questions about any portion of it. It is likely based on Thoresby/Whitaker, and one suspects may originally have come from Hopkinson.
The 15 Aug 1480 will of William Scargill Esq. of Lede, probate 5 Aug 1484, names sons William and John, provides money for the marriage of daughters Jane and Sybill, and makes his wife Margaret his executor. [Testamenta Eboracensis; Vol III; in Surtees Society; Vol 45 ; page 256 @ http://books.google.com/books?id=rzA8AAAAIAAJ&pg=PA256]. She was alive 27 Nov 1490 based on a Plumpton letter, when son John was then dead but William was still alive ['Plumpton Letters and Papers'; Joan W Kirby ed.; p. 99 @ http://books.google.com/books?id=x4K7ymaBPS8C&pg=PA99].
His dau Jane/Joan married aft 5 Aug 1484 John Frobisher Sr. of Altofts (living 1517, d. aft 15 Apr 1521), g grandfather of Sir Martin Frobisher.
Lead was recognised as a deserted medieval village as early as 1968 and possibly earlier. It is situated in North Yorkshire (previously the West Riding), in the district of Selby and lies about one mile west of the village of Saxton. The area today contains the medieval chapel of St. Mary?s, Lead Hall Farm, the Crooked Billet pub and a number of earthworks.
