  • Notes  Married:
    • From Ancestry and Descendants of William Harrington or Herrington 1718-1794:

      Robert, Osulf's son, married Christiana, heiress of the Seaton lands which bordered the Manor of Flemingby,. The REGISTER of St. Bees records that:

      I, Robert of Hafrincton, with the consent of my wife, Christiana, have granted ... to God and Saint Mary, to Saint Bege of Coupland and the Monks living there ...... the Church of Hafrincton and duabus bovatis of land (this would be what a pair of oxen could plow in two days, or about two acres.)

      Ian Grimble states that this church is the Old Harrington Parish Church previouslly described. Since that time it has been repaired and partially rebuilt.

      Robert and Christiana, their son, Thomas, and their grandson, Michael, lived in Harrington since the REGISTER calls them de Haverington. Their great-grandson, Robert, lost all but about 380 acres of the Manor of Flemingby in litigation with the Abbott of Holme Cultram, whose lands were north of the Manor. However, by marriage to Agnes, daughter of Sir Richard Cansfield, he secured the rich manor of Aldingham on Morcambe Bay in Lancashire and moved south to that location.
