"Warcop, Warthe-coop, or Warthecupp, a Village famous for giving a Name to an antient and genteel Family of Warcops, who 'tis probable were Lords of it at that Time, but was alienated in Aftertimes; for Roger Lord Clifford 4th died possessed of it 13 Rich. II. and left it with his other great Estates to his Son and Heir Thomas; yet 'tis probable, that the Warcops still continued Men of Estates and Note, because we observe, that Thomas de Warthe-cupp was Knight of this Shire 8 Hen. V. The Maidenway lies near this village.
Sandford, a Lordship of Roger Lord Clifford 4th, who died seised of it 13 Rich. II. with divers other Manors before-mentioned, and left it to his Son and Heir Thomas, as above."
