    • "I give to George Somerschalles my son the house that I dwe
      ll upon, with all such appurtenances thereto belonging, of the yearly rent of 4s.

      "And if the said George will not be ordered when he shall come to lawful age, and then to be good and fruitful to his mother and to follow her fancies in all her doings, then I will that the said George shall have his portion of my goods at the discretion of my wife and my recorders

      George was the brother of Thomas of Stockdale and Richard the clerk (vicar). He was born late in the life of his father Robert and we know from his father's will that he was underage when he died in 1553. George did not leave a will, his son Robert (died 1597) was looking after him at that time and left him well provided for.

      George did inherit one (or perhaps 2) messuages in Settle and up to 14 acres of land there from his father. This seems to have been part of the "parsonage lands" rented for 4s annually

      George married Janet, their first child recorded in the parish records was Matilda (28th May 1560) followed by Anna (26th May 1564); Margaret (12th Dec 1566); Jane (21st March 1569); Elizabeth (29th July 1571 - 9th July 1572); Thomas (20th Dec 1572); Ellena (25th August 1575); Henry (27th February 1577); William (6th September 1578); George (1st April 1584).

      It seems unlikely that his first wife would be able to have children for more than 25 years but it is just possible. There are some records of very young marriages and his wife could have been just 15 or 16 when their first child was born. His eldest surviving son Robert does not appear in the registers but has to have been born prior to early 1559 he shares his grandfather's name and so is probably their first child (unless there had been a daughter) and is certainly their first boy.

      When Thomas (his brother) died in 1576 he left two ewes and two lambs to each of George's two sons and asked that if George had not used the saddle he left him before he died, his son Robert should have it. Thomas left sheep to each of George's daughters. The two sons were Robert and Thomas. Henry, William and George junior were born after Thomas's death.

      George's daughter Anna married Anthony Brown when she was 14 (11th May 1578)

      Matilda married either Thomas Nesfield 24th November 1574 (aged 14, in this case unlikely) or John Proctor on the 5th June 1578 aged 18, which is more likely. There were subsequent marriages between George's grandchildren and the Proctor family.

      Jane married Milo Wilson on the 19th June 1589 (aged 20). Robert married Margaret Wilson but we do not have a date for the wedding.

      Margaret married William Lund on the 23rd May 1596 aged 30.

      Ellena married William Iveson in 1609 aged 34

      In 1570 George Somerscales and Robert his eleven year old son bought the manor of Little Newton and 12 messuages and 4 cottages with lands there from Henry Tempest esq and Isabel his wife (YASRS vol. 2 Feet of Fines for the Tudor Period vol 1 1887 p381)

      This was Robert's inheritance and consisted of the lordship and manor of Little Newton, 12 messuages, 4 cottages, 15 tofts, 15 gardens, 15 orchards, 300 acres of land, 150 acres of meadow, 200 acres of pasture, 20 acres of wood, 500 acres of heath and furze, 50 acres of moorland and 200 acres of turbary; all 1420 acres held from the earl of Cumberland.

      George's sons (Robert's brothers) Thomas, Henry, William and George have proved difficult to pin down, only William and George are mentioned in the will of 1598 and therefore sure to have been alive, but perhaps they are the only two to have married by then (although no record remains) or maybe the other sons were in some way treated as black sheep.

      There are no further entries for the Henry born 1577 but he could have remained unmarried in which case there would be no parish record.

      Thomas (born 1572) could have married Margaret Maskew at Clapham in 1604, their first son was William, born in 1605 who died very young. The second child was George baptised 22nd June 1606 and Anna the daughter was baptised 14th August 1608.
