Hello All,

An interesting agreement dated 1420 settled the division of
the lands of Isabel (Woodhall) Barley between her grandson William
Bosvile, son of John Bosvile of Ardsley, and her surviving daughter
Margaret (Barley) Drax:

' This agreement made at London in December 1420, in the presence
of James Stranwaise, Serjeant of Law of our Lord King (Henry V).
Between John Bosville, Esquire, and William his elder son for
the one part; and John Drax, Serejeant at Arms of our Lord King,
and Margaret his wife for the other part.
That is, John Drax and Margaret will have without any
liabilities, the Manor of Wodhall, by Wombwell, and also all the
lands, tenements, rents and services in Derfeld, Wombwell,
Hymlingfeld, Wodhall, Smethley, Wykerburgh, and Bylynglay, which
once belonged to Isabell, wife of Thomas de Barlay, and John de
Wodhall, father of Isabell.
Also, John Drax and Margaret will have all the lands,
tenements, rents and services, which the Prior of Monk Bretton
holds of the Manor of Wodhall; excepting for one year, afield in
Derfeld called Giles Place, which, after one year will revert to
John Drax and Margaret, for an annual payment of ten shillings to
John Bosville and his heirs begotten by Mary, sometime his wife.
And, John Bosville and his aforesaid heirs, will have the
Manors of High Melton and Wath, called Thornhall, and all the
lands, tenements, rents and services in High Melton, Wath, Little
Melton, Brampton, Hickleton, Grisbro, High Burton, Gaytford, Selby
and Brayton.
Also, according to the practice, John Bosville and his
aforesaid heirs, will have the roads of the Manor of Newhall, from
a bridge called Aldambrigge in the village of Wombwell, in the
demesne of Wodhall, according to the terms of an old agreement
And also, John Bosville and his aforesaid heirs, will have from
John Drax and Margaret, an annual rent of six pounds from the
lands, tenements, rents and services of the Manor of Wodhall;
excepting the Manor itself and the gardens surrounded by an ancient
wall; to be paid at the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord Jesus,
and at Saint John the Baptist, by equal portions. But the aforesaid
rent to cease for all time, if John Bosville or his son William,
should recover or buy certain lands or tenements in Derfeld, called
And, if anything should be written differently, from or against
this Agreement, it will be corrected by the aid of James and
Richard Wynteworth. ' [1]

John de Woodhall, father of the above-named Isabel, was in fact
a male-line descendant of the FitzWilliams of Sprotborough. His
grandfather was Sir Roger fitz Thomas, of Woodhall, younger son of
Sir Thomas fitz William of Sprotborough (d. aft 1252) and his wife
Agnes Bertram [2].

Through this family, there is a previously unidentified descent
from Geoffrey Plantagenet, count of Anjou to the emigrant William
Farrar (d. ca. 1637). A detailed pedigree of this descent is given
