    • Biography

      Richard Sherburne Esq. was a member of aristocracy in the British Isles.
      "Richard de Sherburne of Stonyhurst, was born in 1381 (the son of Richard de Bayley and Margaret de Sherburne)[1][2], and married Agnes, daughter of William Stanley of Hooton, Cheshire. Richard attended the Parliaments of 8 and 9 Henry V, 1420-21, at Westminster, for Lancashire. In 8 Henry VI (1429-1430), we find Richard Sherburne settling certain quarrels that had arisen between half-a-dozen women as to where they should kneel in Church. [Cuerdon MS.; W., ii. 494] He is also mentioned in Sir H. Nichols, Proc. Privy Council, iii. 327, on 4 Jun 1429.

      "Richard de Sherburne died 19 Henry VI or 1441. His will is an early specimen of English, is dated 3 Jan 1436, and was proved 7 Jun 1441. The inquisition post mortem was taken at Lancaster on Thursday the Feast of St. Lawrence Martyr, 19 Henry VI, or 10 Aug 1441. The jury said that Richard died seised of the manor of Aghton and Hamilton, lands in Baggerburgh and Frekleton, land in Leylond, a quarter part of the manor of Bolton, a moiety of the manor of Wiswall, two burgages in Clitheroe, and together with his wife Agnes of the manor of Lonton, and that said Richard died on Monday before the Pentecost 19 Henry VI (29 May 1441), and that Robert, aged six years, son of Richard, son of the aforesaid Richarch, is the grandson and next heir. " (Ref: A History of the Family of Sherborn, pp. 12-15)

      Richard was only 9 at his grandfather's death in 1391, and he became the ward of Sir Nicholas Harington and the subject of a child marriage.

      "Richard Bayley, alias Richard Shireburn, adopted his mother's surname. He was born at Stonyhurst on the Feast of St. Wilfrid, 5 Richard II (12 Oct 1381), and baptized at Miltton Church. In 1420, and again in the following year, he was returned to the House of Commons by electors of Lancashire. Richard lived to the year 1440 and was buried before the altar of St. Nicholas at Mitton. His widow survived to 1444. Their son was Richard, who died before his parents." (Ref: Stonyhurst Hall, p. 49)

      The 1437 will of Richard Sherburne was published in TESTAMENTA EBORACENSIA Part II, at 75-76, in vol. 30 (1855) of PUBLICATIONS OF THE SURTEES SOCIETY. After bequests to the parish church of Mitton and to religious orders, he left the residue of his estate "to Agnes my wyffe," and named "Robert of Haryngton, knyght, Thomas of Harington, squyer, brother of ye same Robert," among his executors. No one surnamed Stanley is mentioned.

      Marriage & Children
      He married Agnes Harington, daughter of Sir Nicholas Harrington, Sheriff of Lancashire and Isabel English, before 4 August 1391. They had 5 sons & 4 daughters:[1][3]
      Richard [1]
      Robert [1]
      John [1]
      Nicholas [1]
      James [1]
      Alice, wife of Sir John Tempest [1]
      Isabel [1]
      Elizabeth [1]
      Mabel [1]
      Their eight children named in Agnes' will were: Alice, Robert, Isabel, Elizabeth, John, Nicholas, James, and Mabel.

      About Richard Sherburne

      Married Agnes Harrington 1391 when he was 9 years old. He was a Knight of the Shire of Lancaster and is entombed in the Shireburne Chapel at All Hallows Church, Mitton commonly known as Mytton Church. He was given his mothers surname Shireburn rather than his fathers Bailey. Being of the Bailey line he was the 4th. great grandson of Otto de Mitton whos own family then began to use the surname Bailey after their manor granted to Otto de Mitton by his older brother Hugh de Mitton circa 1200. His son is the next Richard Shireburne and lived until 1494. He was married at 12 years old and lived at Stonyhurst. He is also entombed in this chapel. https://thefamilydemitton.wordpress.com/shireburne-shireburne-and-more-shireburnes/

      Margaret Sherburne conveyed all her Shireburne estates and assets to her husband Richard Bayley (descendant of Ralph the Red) to be left to their only son and heir Richard. He was however given the more predominate surname Shireburne to perpetuate the mothers family name and secure the Shireburne inheritance. Margaretís father in law John de Bailey (descendant Mitton) was the possessor of Stonyhurst at the time. He was the grandfather of Richard Shirburne. Richard Bailey, father of Richard Shireburne never had possession of Stoneyhurst. Richard Bailey died 3 years before his father and eventually his son Richard Shireburne inherited Stonyhurst directly from his grandfather John Bailey in 1391.

      He built the aisle to Mitton Church and was the first of the Shireburns of Stonyhurst Hall. His effigy is at Mitton Church with his Shireburne family successors. https://thefamilydemitton.wordpress.com/the-baileys-and-the-shireburnes-are-all-de-mittons/
