  • Notes 
    • [Doc Johnson]

      Nicholas Girlington was the son of Nicholas Girlington and Elizabeth Hansard. He became legal heir to the family holdings at Hackforth following the death of his brother Christopher sometime before 1550. Nicholas, IV was identified as Lord of Hackforth and was living in 1585. Nicholas died intestate in the 38th year of Elizabeth I (1597).

      Hornby Parish records show his date of burial as 28 May 1597 and his estate Inventroy appraisal proved on 18 Nov 1599

      1568 - Mentioned in his brother-in-law's will (Sampson Wyvill)

      The Gyrlyngtons of Hackforth recorded their pedigree in 1584

      Nicholas purchased lands from his borther-in-law, Geroge Pudsey, in 1585. George was the second husband of Faith Gyrlyngton. George died about 1590 and Faith in 1617.

      In 1590 it was noted that Nicholas Girlington, the last but one of the Hackforth pedigree, was living at Sandhall, in the parish of Howden. This estate is in the township of Skelton and lies near, and is almost enclosed by, the banks of the Ouse river; and is opposite the port of Goole. In Johnstons MSS, relating to the county of York, it is stated that the widow of Sir John Girlington (fourth son and successor of Nicholas) sold Sandhall to Mr Walter Blakiston of York.

      Howden parish records show Nicholas was buried on 28 May 1597. The parish records only record the burial date, not the location of burial. He had died intestate (without a will) so there is no written record as to where he had requested to be buried.

      Hackforth, in the parish of Hornby, wapentake of Hang East, and liberties of St. Peter's and Richmondshire; 1 miles ESE. of Hornby, 4 miles NNW. of Bedale. (North Rding)

      Sand Hall, (the seat of William Sholfield, Esq.) in the township of Skelton, and parish of Howden; 3 miles SSE. of Howden, 13 from Selby. (East Riding)

      Skelton, in the parish of Howden, wapentake and liberty of Howdenshire; 2 miles SE. of Howden. This village lies close to the river Ouse, and near the Howden Dyke Ferry, where passengers are landed from the steam packets from Selby to Hull about noon. (East Riding)
