From http://cybergata.com/roots/2221.htm :
Michael married Agatha, a daughter of Henry, Lord Ravensworth, and succeeded his father as lord of Aldingham. This Michael le Fleming did not get along with his religious neighbors who looked with longing eyes upon his possession, and to have whole peninsula of Furness. Shortly after the accession of Henry III, the abbot paying a fine of 400 marks to the King to have the confirmation of Stephen's charter, "and to have the homage and service of Michael le Fleming for all the land which he held of the King for ten pounds yearly." Michael le Fleming objected to the lowering of his social status from a tenant in capite to that of a vassal of the abbots of Furness so he petitioned the King. The king issued a writ to the sheriff to make inquiry into the circumstances, "because we have been given to understand by our faithful, that we have been deceived in the concession which we made to the abbot of Furness, of the homage and service of Michael Flandrensis."
