Corrections:
DOCKWRA; the Cumbrian place-name is now Dockray, though it was spelt Docwra in the 12th century.
QUARTON/WHARTON: the place I was thinking of is in Westmoreland, not Lancashire. It was recorded as Querton in 1292, when a Gilbert de Querton lived there. There are other places in England called Wharton.
Never rely on your memory when the written sources are available - a lesson I might learn one day.
