"The surname of Latimer is remarked from an old inquisition to have been attributed to Wrenoc, the son of Meirric, who held certain lands by the service of being latimer, that is interpreter between the Welsh and English. Of this name, English history has since boasted of several distinguished personages.
William Le Latimer, in the 2nd Richard I., 1190-1, paid 100 shillings to have a trial at law with Geffry de Valoins, who had possessed himself of part of his park at Billenges, York. To this William s. another,
William Le Latimer, who, in the 38th Henry III., A.d. 1254, was made sheriff of Yorkshire, and governor of the castle at York, and the next year governor of Pickering Castle. In this sheriffalty he continued for nearly five years, during which period he had a military summons to march into Scotland in aid of (the minor) King Alexander (Henry III.'s son in-law), against his rebellious subjects : and be was constituted escheator-general throughout all the cos. of England. In the 47th Henry III., 1263, he obtained the king's precept to the conservators of the peace, in the cos. of York, Cumberland, Northumberland, Lincoln, and Northampton, to make restitution to him of all his lands which had been seized in the baronial war. He appears, however, in those contests to have sided with the crown, for we find him upon the full re-establishment of the power of the king again filling the office of sheriff of Yorkshire, and again governor of the castles at York and Scarborough. ..."
