Roger de Doncaster first occurs in the Wakefield manor court rolls in 1327. He is referred to sometimes as Roger de Doncastre (or similar), sometimes as Roger, son of William de Doncaster (as per titles in list below).

The De Doncaster family in Sandal

We find the De Doncasters established in Sandal already in 1275, about a year after surviving court rolls begin.

Raymond de Doncaster

Reymond de Donecastre is recorded in Ravenesfeud (Ravensfield) in 1274, the first year covered by the surviving records. He occurs once more same year.[1] In 1298 we learn that he had a daughter named Alice.[2] He figures again later that year.[3]

Alice de Doncaster

Alice de Doncaster, the daughter of Raymond figuring in 1298 (cf. preceding) was married to William de Cardoil, who died no later than 1298.[4] She figures in 1297 and 1298 as Alice wife/widow of William de Cardoil.[5]

Robert de Doncaster

In 1275, 'Robertus de Donecastre' pays for taking over land from another tenant.[6] He figures in the court rolls later same year and in 1284, 1289, 1297 and 1298.[7]

John de Doncaster

John de Doncastre, perennial chief steward of the manor of Wakefield, seems to have been appointed in 1296.[8] He figures in the court rolls in 1297-98,[9]. in a charter dated 1307 and in the rolls for 1307-1308.[10]

Elias de Doncaster

Elias son of Robert de Doncastre pays for license to take land in Sandal in 1297. He figures twice more in the roll for that year[11] and in 1307, 1308 (Elias de Danecastre)[12]

William de Doncaster

William son of Robert de Donecastre pays for license to take land in Sandal in 1297, Elias being pledge.[13] In addition to both being referred to as sons of Robert de Doncaster we have an entry in 1333 referring to 'Elias de Donecastre and William his brother'. A similar entry occurs later that year.[14] William figures again in the rolls in 1307[15] In view of 18th century West Riding of Yorkshire traditions to the effect that Little John was surnamed Nailor, it is worth noting that land surrendered to the lord of the manor by a John le Nailer in 1329 was demised to William de Doncaster.[16] William figures in the rolls in 1307[17]

Nelle de Doncaster

Nelle de Donecastre occurs as a pledge in 1297.[18] Her Christian name may have been Eleanor, Helen or Cornelia. In view of the period and social context Eleanor seems most likely.

Thomas de Doncaster

Thomas de Doncaster figures only once in the manor court rolls, in 1309, when 'Thomas de Danecastre' pays for taking over land in Crigglestone.[19]

Roger de Doncaster

18 Sep. 1332, William de Donecastre surrenders land in Crigglestone.[20]
