1131. Manchester-Swineshead
Robert, the son of Albert Gresley and second baron of Manchester, gave to the Abbey of Swineshead, in Lincoinshire, his mill at Mancestre, "at which lordship," says Dugdale, "he held his principal seat." He is stated to have died in 1135, but another account represents him as founding the abbey in 1143. Dugdale (Monasticon and Baronage) says 1134.
