Division Into Two Manors

I have discovered nothing as yet about the history of the next Century but it would appear that by the end of the 1100's the whole of Worlington was held by one Agnes de Rivill. Under the feudal system of the time, nobody actually owned land in the modern sense but held it of another Agnes de Rivill probably held directly from the King. She had two daughters, one of whom married Ur de Wichenton and the other of whom, another Agnes, married Roger de Scales. It would seem that her holding was divided between her two heirs as, from the early 1200's, two separate estates or manors can be traced.
