Early Origins of the Renecker family

The surname Renecker was first found in Lancashire. One of the first records of the family was found in the year 1246 when Alan de Runacres held estates in that shire. "The Renacres family have been mentioned; they appear to have been closely related to the lords of the manor [of Bickerstaffe], and on one occasion 'put in their claim' at a settlement of the family estates. From cases cited above it appears that Stephen de Renacres was a prominent personage in Bickerstaffe about 1290, and that he was succeeded by his son Simon, who occurs in the reign of Edward II. In 1348 Richard, son of Simon de Renacres, granted to his father a rent of 2s. 4d. issuing from lands in Bickerstaffe, and in 1391-2 Ellen (Walsh), the widow of Richard de Renacres of Bickerstaffe, granted to Hugh le Spencer of Ormskirk certain lands which had come to her after the death of her husband." 1
