Families covered: Lathom of Lathom

Many thanks to a contributor (OWC, 13.08.09) whose schedule on this family, supported by sources, enabled us to provide a more comprehensive work on this family than we would otherwise have been likely to produce (in our first attempt, at least).
1. Siward of Lathom, Lancashire (a temp Henry II who r. 1154-1189)
  A. Henry 'of Lathom' the first mentioned by CTG's pedigree although CTG does contain a note that he may have been Henry FitzSiward
  i. Robert FitzHenry of Lathom (d by 1199)
  m1. ?? (dau of Orme FitzAilward by Emma, dau of Albert Greslie)
  a. Richard de Lathom of Lathom (d c1220)

  m. Roesia
(2) Sir Robert de Lathom of Lathom, Sheriff of Lancashire (d 1290)
  m1. Amicia (or Joan) de Alfreton (sister/coheir of Thomas son of Robert de Alfreton of Alfreton)
  CTG shows Amicia as Robert's only wife and mother of his children. VCH reports that Joan/Amicia probably dsp as the manors she had inherited did not pass into the Lathom family and suggests that Joan de Milliom was mother of his children. However, BHO (Magna Brittania, vol 5, Derbyshire, Parishes: Alfreton) suggests that a moiety (interest) in Alfreton did pass into this family but was purchased by Amicia's nephew, Thomas de Chaworth. Accordingly, we show Amicia as mother of ...
  (A) Nicholas de Lathom of Lathom (d by 1298)

  (a)+ 4 daughters
  m2/1. Eleanor de Ferrers (dau of Sir John de Ferrers)
  (e) Sir Thomas Lathom of Lathom & Knowsley (d 1382)
It appears that there were various stories about the descent of Lathom into the Stanley family involving a legendary 'Sir Oskell de Lathom'. VCH identifies this Sir Thomas as that Sir Oskell.
  m. Johanna Venables (dau of Sir Hugh Venables of Kinderton, sister of Hugh)
  ((1)) Thomas Lathom of Lathom (d 1383)
  CTG, which shows Thomas as his father's son but not by Johanna Venables, identifies this Thomas as the Sir Oskell of legend who had a (younger) son who was ancestor of the Lathoms of Irlam but lost out from inheriting Lathom when it was claimed by Sir John Stanley.
