CR, Langley 22 (1427): Writ of scire facias against William Eure, William Spence and William Hoton, for debt at the suit of the Lord Bishop.
CR, Langley 22 (1427): Sir William Bowes of Stetelam, William Lomley of Bentrove, esquire and William Hoton of Hunewyk, esquire: recognizance to the Lord Bishop for the payment of a sum of money by Sir William Eure of Woton, William Spence, clerk, and William Hoton of Herdwyk.
CR, Neville 2 (1439): Pardon for William Hoton of Herdwyk for the acquisition from Robert Bruys of the manor and vill of Heworth by Acle without license. Pardon for grant of the same by him to Master George Radclyffe, clerk, and William Eure, knight, and for the grant of the same by the latter to Roger Thornton, esquire, William Hoton of Hunwyk, John Horsley and Thomas Hoton, chaplain, without license. License to the parties last named to grant the same to Master William Blakburne, rector of the church of Stanhope, Master Richard Witton, clerk, William Raket of Durham, Thomas Thornburgh of Elvet and John Stapilton, chaplain. It thus seems that the William Hotons of Herdwyk and Hunwyk are different people. See Surtees, Vol. 3, p. 34 for some more information on the Hotons of Hardwicke.
