Michael held the moiety of Furness and was Lord of Aldingham in Furness, 1127,
and Lord of Urswick. He held Bolton manor, 1127, which he gave to his
daughter Godith, whose descendants in the Copeland family inherited it.
Furthermore he held the manors of Bechermet, Frissington, Waddington,
Rottingham, Waddicker, and Arlocdon. But his main property consisted of the
manors of Aldingham and Urswick. Aldingham Parish manor (now Muchland) in
Furness, co. Lancaster, consisted of 20 1/2 plowlands (2050 acres) in 1127, as
follows: Aldingham, 300; Leece, 400; Hart, 100; Gleaston, 100; Dendron, 50;
and Sunton, 100 (accounting for 10 1/2 plowlands.) Most of his property was
to descend to the Haryngton family. The other manors in Aldingham which also
descended to the Haryngton family were Bolton, 300 acres; Stainton, 100;
Fordbottle, 100; Roose, 300; and Newton, 200 making 1000 acres (the other ten
plowlands). Michael gave Fordbottle manor to Furness Abbey, 1153, and
exchanged Roose for Bardes and Little Urswick. Thus he obtained the whole
parish of Urswick and relinquished what he held in Dalton Parish.
