Offices Held


Alnwick is first mentioned in March 1390, when he served as a juror at an inquisition ad quod damnum regarding the endowment of St. Mary’s church, Scarborough. So far as is known he sat in only one Parliament and held no municipal office. His financial dealings were, however, fairly impressive, since in 1395 he was pardoned a sentence of outlawry incurred for failing to appear in court when being sued for a debt of £60. He may have been the father or elder brother of the William Alnwick who was made bailiff of Scarborough in 1399. At all events, the two men were named together shortly before this date as jurors in a property dispute involving William Harom*.
