Name: William de Hesketh 1
Residence: Great Harwood, Lancs
Change Date: 21 JAN 2013
William de Hesketh, whose parentage is unknown, was apparently a 'landless man,' the possessions of the family in Rufford, Great Harwood and Tottleworth being acquired from his wife, Maud Fitton, or by purchase. He had two sons, John, who succeeded, and Adam.
I have a generation between William and John that VCH doesn?t refer to.
