After the chaos of King Stephen's reign "we find William son of Gilbert de Lancaster fully established as baron of Kendal and Lord of Warton, Garstan," - from "The Yorkshire Archaelogical Journal." He changed his surname to de Lancaster on the orders of the King, Henry II, and was summoned to Parliament.
