Robert de Harington

of Harrington in Cumberland

Robert became lord of Aldingham by his marriage to Agnes, the sister and heiress of William de Cancefield.

Their son John was summoned to Parliament as Baron Harington during the reign of Edward II, with whom he had been invested as a Knight of the Bath.

The manor of Aldingham had previously been held by Michael le Fleming.

The fret, that is borne on the arms of the Fleming and Harrington families, shows plainly that the College of Herald acknowledged a connecting link between the Fleming and the Harington families.
