10th. March Sunday
Sir Richard West, fourteenth baron of Manchester, is said to have died 10th March, 1476, though according to another account he was summoned to parliament in January, 1497. He was a staunch partizan of the House of Lancaster, and in 1460 had a grant of 40 per annum from the forfeited possessions of Richard Duke of York. In 1463 he had a grant authorising him to go beyond the seas.(7)
