Robert de Gresley, Baron of Manchester was one of the peers who demanded Magna Charta from King John, at Runnymede, June 12. When the barons again rose in arms Gresley incurred the anger of the King, who committed his castle to Adam de Yeland, probably as sheriff and afterwards granted Greslet's lands to William Maresma the younger and Hugh de Vivian. These orders were never executed, and Johnís death in 1216 left Greslet undisturbed.
Adam de Radcliffe disafforested by King Henry III.(9)
