Families covered: Pease of Darlington, Pease of Fishlake, Pease of Hesslewood, Aldam of Warmsworth

(1) Although the 2 families shown on this page both come from Yorkshire, their coats of arms are very different from each other.
(2) Of the firstfamily, BP1934 reports that "The Peases, of Dartington, descend, according to tradition, from Edward Pease, who was seized of lands at Sikehouse, in Fishlake, W.R. Yorks, temp. Henry VIII., younger son of John Pease, of Essex." BLG1894 provides that descent, which we show, but reports that "The Peases of Darlington, descend, according to tradition, from a West Riding family of the name, settled near Wakefield, where an old house, Pease Hall, still remains."
