  • Notes 
    • Tristram Bolling, the eldest son of Robert Bolling, the attainted possessor of Bolling Hall, married Beatrix, daughter of Sir Walter Calverley, of Calverley. He was a man of great courage, and was most loyal to the Lancastrina party, so much so that he appears to have idolized Henry VI.

      In his behalf he fought alongside his father at Towton, but, being young, escaped further consequences than the disastrous defeat of his party. He died at Chellow, near Manningham, leaving an heiress, Rosamund, who had become the wife of Sir Richard Tempest, of Bracewell.

      We give a copy of his will on account of its quaintness of spelling and the information it contains:--
