Excerpt from The Registers of the Parish of Askham: In the County of Westmoreland From 1566 to 1821

The Parish of Askham is situated in that district of North Westmore land which formed part of the ancient kingdom of Cumbria, and was therefore subject to the incursions of the Scotch, on whose claim to this part of the country a new light seems to be thrown by the recent discovery at Lowther, by the Rev. F.W. Ragg, of an interesting deed or charter, from Gospatrick, the probable ruler of the district in the reign of William the Conqueror. Whether the county did, or did not, belong to the kingdom of Scotland, it is certain the Scotch vigorously maintained their claim to it, which was as vigorously resisted, leading to much unrest and continual fighting in the disputed territory, in which Askham doubtless participated, as in the time of Edward III. the country south of Penrith suffered very considerably for two or three years from an incursion of the Scotch, before they were again driven back across the Solway; and a reference to the Alien Rolls shows many Scots settled in the district.

The Parish apparently contained two manors, Askham, and Helton Flechane or Fleckett. The latter belonged to Robert de Morville in the reign of Edward I., and seems to have been divided between his daughters and co-heiresses, Margaret, who married a Wessington, and Idonea, the younger, who married Robert English lord of the manor of Little Ashby. The Wessington moiety was held by them in the reign of Edward III. On March i8th, 1523, one half was granted by the Prior and Convent of Mount-Grace in Yorkshire, to Sir John Lowther, and amongst the monks of Mount-Grace who were pensioned at the dissolution are two local names, Henry Ayreye and Geoffry Hodgeshon.

On March 1st, 1526, the other half was exchanged by Sir John Mallory, for lands at Sedbergh, with Sir John Lowther.

The English family held the other moiety till the marriage of the heiress of the family, Idonea, with Edmund de Sandford of Warcop, in the reign of Edward Iii.

In 1340 Thomas English obtained a grant of free warren at Helton Flechane, with licence to impark the wood of Satron, on the south side of which, much of the old park wall is still standing.
