The Elland Feud



The Elland Feud took place from 1317 to 1354 between the Lacy family, who were the Earls of Pontefract, and the Warren family, who were the Earls of Wakefield.

The story is told in a narrative entitled Revenge upon Revenge, which appears in The History of the town & parish of Halifax, and Watson gives an anonymous poem of 124 verses describing the History of Sir John Eland, of Eland, and his Antagonists.

The major events of the feud include:
