James Ryther, in common with other landowners of the day, was seeking to turn to his own advantage the legislation which favoured the enclosure of waste land. Litigation records show that in the course of 1579-1580 Ryther bought a case relating to common rights against one Robert Hopwood and others before the Star Chamber. Only Ryther's Bill of complaint survives, but Hopwood's name occurs again the next case and the two may be part of a single episode. The second case reputed in August 1580, sparked off by Ryther's enclosing "one parcel of ground lately called the Long Wood and now called the Spring'. In that month Thomas Wentworth of Wentworth Woodhouse, husband of Margaret Gascoigne, heiress to the manor of Gawthorpe which adjoined Harewood, supported by Robert Hopwood and 25 others assembled "in riotous manner" and pulled or cut down Ryther's enclosing hedge and turned their cattle into the place. Ryther brought proceedings, which lasted from June 1581 to September 1582, but the results are unclear.
In 1580/81 James Ryther purchased property in Yorkshire in 1580/81. Hilary Term 23 Eliz. Plaintiffs: John Manners, esq., James Ryther, esq., Edward Herne, esq.

One of the experts called in an enquiry into Dover Haven in 1581 was James Ryther.
Thomas Wentworth, armiger, won a defamation case against James Ryther, armiger, between Jan & August 1582. James was admitted to Gray's Inn in February 1581/82, London.
     James was a plaintiff in a civil court case in February 1581/82 in London. 1581-2: Bill of complaint in the Star Chamber of James Rither of London, Esq. administrator of the goods and chattels of William Atherton of Harewood, gent, deceased, during the nonage of Robert & John Rither, the plaintiff's sons, executors appointed by William Atherton's will. Atherton in his lifetime delivered to Anthony Mawde of Helthwayhill £100 to be safely kept for Atherton's use, and to be paid to him or his assigns on demand, and by his will gave all his goods, etc. not otherwise bequeathed (and therefore including the £100) to the said Robert & John Rither, and made them executors. John has since died, but Robert is alive and still under 21. The plaintiff, as adminstrator, demanded the £100, but Mawde refused to repay it. The plaintiff, about two years ago, complained before the Council of the North at York, when Mawde appeared, and falsely swore that the £100 was a gift. He asked for a supoena against Mawde for perjury. Mawde demurred, on the ground that the cause of complaint arose before the Council of York, and could therefore be best tried there..

Biography
By his own account Ryther was born in Kent and brought up in Northamptonshire. In 1563 he succeeded to the moiety of the manor and castle of Harewood which his father had inherited on the death of a distant cousin, and eventually moved back to Yorkshire. He was descended from Thomas, son of Sir Thomas Ryther (or Ryder) of Ryther in the West Riding, and related through the descendants of Thomas’s brother Sir Ralph to the Constables of Flamborough and the Ashes of Aughton, who in turn were related to the Cliffords, earls of Cumberland, the nominal patrons of the borough of Appleby. That he owed his election directly to his kinship with the 3rd Earl is not unlikely, but he was also known to several members of the Russell family and to Lord Burghley.2
In a short sequence of letters beginning in 1587 when he had lived in Yorkshire for 20 years and was one of its justices of the peace, Ryther described to Burghley the condition of the county and the district around Kendal. York was very badly governed; the poor committed great disorders which might be prevented if gentlemen were forbidden to dismiss their servants; there was too much engrossing of corn; the number of alehouses had increased because the justices’ clerks were making money out of licensing them; the justices were inadequate and too few; and the common people, though courteous and tractable, were attached to custom and not readily disposed to accept the high authority of Parliament; the only northern gentleman worthy of his calling was the Earl of Cumberland; the further north one went, ‘the less the truth’; the borderers sold horses to our ‘back friends’ the Scots; Scottish faults were spreading into England, and so on. In one letter, dated 7 Apr. 1588 but endorsed 7 Apr. 1589, he enjoins Burghley to bear with Christian fortitude the death of the ‘late weak lady’ who had been lent to him by divine providence for longer than human reason could have expected. Though always respectful, these letters from Ryther to Burghley seem to claim a degree of acquaintance bordering on the familiar; they suggest that Burghley had known him for some years, as indeed he would have done if, as has been asserted, Ryther had been an esquire of the body to the Queen as his father had been to Queen Mary.

A very different picture of Ryther was given by Archbishop Sandys in his report of September 1587 on Yorkshire justices. To the archbishop he was ‘a sour and subtle papist’, who had been put into the commission for that very reason, ‘ready to hinder any matter that shall touch any papist’, ‘a man unprofitable for the commonwealth and full of contention’, dependent on
Sir Thomas Fairfax ‘to make good his evil causes’. To another he was ‘a man profoundly studied in Macchiavelli’. He remained in the commission, but his unpopularity in the county contributed to a curious change in his fortunes. In January 1592 he was petitioning Burghley, ‘his singular good lord and patron’, to secure his release from Newgate, whither he had been sent by order of the court of wards because of a debt to the Queen which he claimed he had paid. It was being said of him that he was ‘a troublesome man’ to the gentlemen of the county, which was untrue, and that ‘I will pay no man his due, a thing far from me’. He was ‘a gentleman not meanly descended, a poor servant to her Majesty’, to whom he had given good service in his county and who had promised to protect him. As for the allegation that he was at variance with the Fairfaxes, the fact was that he was very closely tied to them by blood and friendship. The end of this affair is not known.4
By mid-July 1594 he was a prisoner again, this time in the Fleet. The Countess of Cumberland, writing to an unnamed correspondent, begged him to move Sir Robert Cecil on Ryther’s behalf; she herself had spoken in his favour to the Queen. He was still confined on 17 Dec., when Stanwardine Passy, servant to the keeper of the Gatehouse, reported in French to
Richard Topcliffe that there was ‘no news but a letter from Mr. Ryder in the Fleet’. A later letter, to Archibald Douglas, the Scotch ambassador in England, from ‘you know who’, tells more: ‘Mr. Rydder was loosed out of prison yesternight and is to be troubled with strait watching which hinders all his business’. The writer had given him £80 and had agreed ‘to pleasure’ him with £65 more.5
Ryther died 4 Sept. 1595. Four years after his death his heir was compelled to sell Harewood to pay his debts.

     James Ryther was mentioned in September 1587 in Harewood In Sep 1587 the Edwin Sandys, Archbishop of York told Lord Burghley that James Ryther of Harewood, a J.P. was a soure, subtil papist, and brought into commission [of the Peace] in respect thereof. Ready to hinder any matter that shall touch any papist. He dependeth upon Sir Thomas Fairfax [of Denton] to make good his evil causes. Wentworth and Ryther were both considered to be Sir Thomas Fairfax's 'men'. In 1588 James wrote a description of Yorkshire among his letters to Lord Burghley.
James Rither's complained to Lord Burghley of the great increase of Ale-houses in Yorkshire. Another undated paper outlined Mr James Rither's scheme for a free school and relief of the poor, in the parish & manor of Harwood, Yks.
     James Ryther in Harewood sent a letter dated 17 July 1588. From Mr Rither, 1588 Ag: ye Scots, to the right honorable, my very good Lord the Lord High Treasure of England: .... My Lord, I was born in Kent, brought up in Northamptonshire, dwell now in Yorkshire and am often conversant with the people of Kendall .... Jame Rither, Harwoood xvij July 1588.
     James Ryther sent a letter dated 4 January 1591. James Rither, in Newgate to Lord Burghley, that he is thrown into that vile prisn for a debt to the Queen that he has already paid.
On 14 October 1591 he attested: I, James Ryther of Harwood Castell, in the county of York, Esquire, have caused this discent of kindred to be sett downe according to myne owne knowledge and view of writing, with other matters of evidences; also by credible reports of auncient men, to be true, in maner and forme as abovesaid; and that Wiliam Ryther, gentleman, now Sheriff of London, is descended from my auncestor Sr Wm Ryrher, of Ryther, in the county of Yorke, Kt., in maner and forme as is above sett downe. In witness whereof I have hereunto sett my hand and seale, the 14 day of October in the year of our Lord 1591 - by me James Rither. He was imprisoned from Jan 1591/2 in Fleet Prison & Newgate, London. January 4 1591/2: He writes to Lord Burghley "his singular good lord and patron" from Newgate, stating that he has been thrown in there by order of the court of wards for a debt to the Queen which he claimed to have paid. It was being said of him that he was "a troublesome man" to the gentlemen of the county, which was untrue, an that "I will pay no man his due, a thing far from me". He was a gentleman not meanly descended, a poor servant to her Majesty", to whom he had given good service in his county and had promised to protect him. As for the allegation that he was at variants with the Fairfaxes, the fact was that he was very closely tied to them by blood and friendship. The end of this affair is not known. On the 17th of the same month he wrote again begging that his accusers may be brought to justice.
25 June 1592. James Ryther from the Fleet to John Tamworth re sending money.
By mid July 1594 he was a prisoner again, this time in the Fleet. The Countess of Cumberland, writing to an unnamed correspondent, begged him to move Sir Robert Cecil on Ryther's behalf; she herself had spoken in his favour to the Queen. He was still confined on 17 December when Stanwardine Passy, servant to the Keeper of the Gatehouse, reported in French to Richard Topcliffe that there was "no news but a letter from Mr Ryder in the Fleet". A later letter, to Archibald Douglas, the Scotch ambassador in England, from "you know who", tells more: "Mr Rydder was loosed out of prison yesternight and is to be troubled with strait watching which hinders all his business". The writer had given him £80 and had agreed "to pleasure" him with £65 more.
The Castle was eventually, on 11 April 1593, occupied by Hare's men, but only after a clash between 30 & 40 on either side. Bows and arrows, guns and stones, armour, shot and munition were called into use. One of Ryther's men was killed and John Savile himself was "struck on the breast with an arrow shot out of a bow by a very strong archer to the great peril of the loss of his life". The defence, if it is the right term, was headed by James' son Robert Ryther, supported by a faithful servant Ralphe Conystone. Robert was conspicuous by his violent language, saying that if any durst approach he "would make hold in their flesh and kill them and hang their skins on the hedge".
