The Early de HAMPTON’S - continued (page 2)

    |  |  |  |  |     +-9. Thomas DE HAMPTON (living 1400) (working hypothesis as another possible son of Sir John de Hampton and Margaret)   May 3, 1400 - Westminster:   Order to Robert Poyns, escheator in the county of Gloucester - pursuant to an inquisition made by him showing that Maud late the wife of Richard de Stafford, knight, on the day of her death held for life (1) a joiety of the manor of Campeden and of the advowson of the chapel of the manor,  of the gift and grant of John Whytynton, late parson of the church of Newynton de la Wolde, and Richard de Drayton, late parson of the church of Sekynton, co Warwick, and the manor of ASTON 'under' EGGE and the advowson of the church of the said town of Aston, of the gift and grant of Hugh de HOPEWAS, chaplain, Henry De Tymmore, chaplain, and Nicholas de Yvyngho, chaplain, made by separate fines with the king's licence to the said Richard and Maud [de Stafford] and the heirs male of their bodies, with remainder in default of such heirs to the right heirs of Richard;  (2) the manor of UYLNTON, co GLOUCESTER, of the gift and grant of THOMAS de HAMPTON by a fine levied in the king's court to the said Richard and Maud and the heirs male of their bodies, with the remainder in default of such heir to the right heirs of Richard; and (3) the manor of Charyngworth, co Gloucester, of the gift and grant of John Goldyng and Maud his wife (etc).       (could this perhaps be our “missing link??”)   

     |  |  |  |  |-7. Elizabeth DE HAMPTON (dau of Sir John de Hampton of Hampshire who died about 1350 & Eleanor)  (no children) -  In April 1337, Hugh de Wrottesley mortgaged all his lands at Butterton and elsewhere on the moors for a sum of £20 to h is father-in-law, SIR JOHN de HAMPTON, the said sum to be repaid at Elderstoke (Oldstoke in Hampshire) on the following Octaves of St. John the Baptist  (1 July 1337).    ELIZABETH is mentioned in conjunction with her father's guardianship of 15 January 1325 when the young heir, Hugh, was then eleven years of age.  It was not unususal for guardians to marry their wards to one of their children.   Original deed at Wrottesley, copied 1860. On the 18 June following, the abovenamed feoffees reconveyed the manor of Wrottesley to Sir Hugh and his wife, Elizabeth, with remainder to his brother Roger, and sisters, Idonia and Elienora, as in the deed of 1334. The seal of William de Wrottesley was much defaced, but the remains of a fret could be clearly distinguished on it. The witnesses to this deed were John de Barnehurst, Richard de Ovyoteshay, JOHN de HAMPTON, and WILLIAM le Neweman de HAMPTON.

     |  |  |  |  |-7. Roger DE HAMPTON (working hypothesis-John & Eleanor’s son) Roger de Hampton is described as "scutifer" or esquire [Wetewang's Accounts, 23rd January].    The Chester Pleas of 10 Henry IV [1409], state that Thomas Barneby, the Chamberlain of Chester, produced in Court an Inquisition which had been taken before Richard de Manley, the Escheator, and which was in these words:    And Margaret, late wife of the said John, son of Thomas de Ardene, Kt., appeared by attorney, and denied that the said ROBERT de Hampton and JOHN, son of ROGER, had been seised of the manors, advowsons and rent, and had conveyed them as shewn in the Inquisition ; and she stated that the said John, son of Thomas (de Arderne), had been seised of the manors and advowsons of Aldeford and Alderlegh.

    |  |  |  |  |  |-8. Robert DE HAMPTON - -Parson of Alderley -   St. Matthew, 11 Henry VI (September 1432) before Humfrey, Duke of Gloucester, then Justice of Chester.   The Record states that an Assize was formed to return a verdict whether Robert, son of Robert de Legh, and Hugh de Wrottesley had unjustly disseised Thomas de Stanley of his manors of Echéis, Aldeford, and Nether Alderley, and of eighty acres of land. Robert appeared in person, but Hugh de Wrottesley made no appearance, and the assize was taken in his absence. Robert denied the disseisin, and put himself on the assize.   The jury stated that one ROBERT de HAMPTON, the Parson of Alderley, and John, son of Roger de Motlowe, were formerly seised of the manor of Alderley, and whilst so seised had granted it to John de Arderne and Elena his wife, to be held by them for their lives, and with remainder to Thomas de Arderne, the son of Elena, and the heirs male of his body, and failing such, to Walkeline, brother of Thomas, and the heirs male of his body, and failing such, to the male heirs of the bodies of John and Elena, and failing such, to the right heirs of John de Arderne.
    |  |  |  |  |  +-8. John DE HAMPTON (poss. Abbot Halesowen 1391)  It is possibly this John who was Abbot of Halesowen in 1391 Halesowen (Worc) St. Mary and Sts. John the Evangelist, lists:    JOHN de HAMPTON, 1391 -  Cannon of Halesowen, eln pres. To bishop 13 June 1391, no reason being given for the vacancy.  Bl. 16 July 1391.    The next abbot occurs in 1395.

    |  |  |  |  |-7. Richard DE HAMPTON -Abbot of Halesowen 1369 (probably son of Sir John de Hampton & Eleanor)  Halesowen (Worc) St. Mary and Sts. John the Evangelist, lists:     RICHARD de HAMPTON 1369 - BL. 23 Sept 1369, no reason being given for the vacancy (Worcester, Reg. Lenn, pg 45).  Occurs 1370; 24 June 1383; 28 May 1391.   In 1331 John de Hampton granted the manor of Rowley (Stafford) to Halesowen, reserving to himself the right of nominating a canon who should pray daily for his soul and that of his wife Eleanor.   John de Botetourt appears to have been a great benefactor to the Halesowen Abbey of which ruins remain and are owned by Viscount Cobham who is also Lord Lyttelton, Baron of Frankley, for sometime in the year of Edward III besides the Manor of Rowley, John de Botetourt and his wife Joanna granted the Manor of Warley in the Parish of Halesowen to the Abbey.   In 1330 he also granted to the Abbey the Advowson of Clent (Worcestershire, 5 miles away) which carried with it the Chapel of Ease, Rowley.  He made his will in 1383 and appointed RICHARD de HAMPTON the Abbot of the Abbey one of his executors, and died two years afterwards.

    |  |  |  |  +-7. John DE HAMPTON -knight 1347 -  John de Hampton, knight was possibly a son who served instead of his sick father [Wetewang's Accounts].  

Mr. Fry and I are currently a bit stymied about John and his daughter JOAN.      We believe John married Joan de CARDIFF, the widow of John de WYNCOTE, by whom she had 3 daughters, Elizabeth, Margery, and Juetta or Alianor.    We further believe that John and Joan had a daughter, JOAN, an infant (new born) when her father died.      For now, I have Joan as having married twice, but would welcome others’ opinion of this!   

Joan DE HAMPTON was born calculated 1349.  It is important to note the following quote:     Richard de Hampton's heir was his niece Joan, the wife of William de Bisshebury, and daughter of his brother John de Hamptone, who was then upwards of forty years of age.   [Esch. 12 Richard II [cal 1389].  In 1 Edward III [cal 1328] a Richard de Hampton was Collector of the Subsidy in Staffordshire.

All the issue that John de Hampton left was a daughter who became the wife of Richard Long.  Which Richard Long and wife Joan, daughter of John Gervaise de Hampton, passed the manor of Tunstall to Richard Hampton for life, he paying them 105 shillings nine pence per annum.   Richard and Joan Long died without issue.”

Howard Hampton Papers, 1659-1951, mentions Joan, stating she married Richard Long, and was the daughter of John Gervaise de Hampton.

Joan married (1) Richard LONG.

Joan also married (2) William DE BISSHEBURY [BUSSEBURY] [living 1398 & 1404], son of (Sir) Henry DE BISSHEBURY [BUSSEBURY] [ladult 1313, living 1373]-knight of Stafford.
[1398]  CORAM REGE. MICH., 21 Richard II.  Staff. WILLIAM BISSHEBURY sued John, son of John de Sutton, knight, for the manors of Overepenne and Bisshebury, which should descend to him under the terms of a Fine levied in 19 E. II, and the Fine having been produced in court and read as before, William prayed execution of them.

[1402] 3 Henry VI, Coram Rege:  Staff. WILLIAM, THE SON AND MALE HEIR OF HENRY, SON OF RALPH DE BISSHEBURY, sued John, son of John de Sutton, for the manor of Overpenne, which he claimed by virtue of a Fine levied in 19 E. II, by Henry de Bisshebury, and by which Fine the manors of Overpenne and Bisshebury, and the advowson of the church of Overpenne were settled on the said Henry and Amice his wife, and the heirs of the body of Henry, and failing such, the manor of Bisshebury was to remain to Ralph, the brother of Henry, for his life, with remainder to Henry, son of Ralph, and the male heirs of his body, and failing such, to the right heirs of Henry de Bisshebury, and the manor of Overpenne was to remain to Hugh the brother of Henry de Bisbhebury for his life, with remainder to the said Henry sen of Ralph, and to the male heirs of his body, and failing such, to the right heirs of Henry de Bisshebury.

John, son of John de Sutton stated that William could not claim execution of the Fine, because Ralph de Bisshebury, his grandfather in 27 Edward III had remitted and quitclaimed all his right and claim in the manor of Overpenne to Ralph, Earl of Stafford, and to his heirs and assigns for ever and with a clause of warranty, so that the said William as the heir of Ralph was bound to warrant the manors to him.

WILLIAM replied that the said Henry de Bisshebury who was named in the Fine died s.p. and his wife Amice afterwards took for husband one Richard de Hugeford and the said Richard and Amice had enfeoffed Ralph
Earl of Stafford, and the said Henry, son of Ralph his father and whose heir he was, perceiving that this feoffment was to his prejudice and likewise to the prejudice of Hugh de Bisshebury, had entered into possession in his own name and in the name of the said Hugh, and had been forcibly removed by the Earl.

John de Sutton stated that the Earl had continued in possession of the manor of Overpenne until he had enfeoffed John de Sutton, his great grandfather, Viz,, the father of John, father of John, father of the said John, son of John de Sutton, and whose heir he was, and this was done during the life-time of Ralph the grandfather of the plaintiff, The suit was adjourned till the Quindene of Easter, m. 39.

[1404] CORAM REGE. HILLARY, 5 Henry IV.  Staff. The suit of WILLIAM, son and heir male of HENRY, son of RALPH de BISSHEBURY, against John de Sutton, son and heir of John de Sutton, knight, was respited till three weeks from Easter unless the King's Justices' John Hulle and Hugh Huls, came fir&t to Stafford on the Monday in the second week of Lent, no jury having appeared coram Rege. m. 20, dorso.

He was therefore ordered to put them into the exigend, and if they appeared, to arrest them and produce them Coram Rege at a month from Easter. m. 7.  ['Plea Rolls for Staffordshire: 8 Edward II', Staffordshire Historical Collections, vol. 10, part 1 (1889), pp. 15-19]

1327, Feb 14, Westminster [Calendar of Close Rolls, Vol 24]:  Thomas de Knokyn, dean of the church of St. Mary Magdalene, Brugenorth, acknowledges that he owes to HENRY de BUSSEBURY and CLEMENT de WOLVERNEHAMPTON, clerk, 100L; to be levied, in default of payment, of his lands an chattels in co Salop.

    |  |  |  +-6. Richard (II) DE HAMPTON  was the 2nd son of Richard de  Hampton & Felize.  Remember that Richard who married Felize was an adult in 1327.    From a deposition, it appears this Richard was born about 1326, died 1388.    This Richard was the King's Squire.   Richard de Hampton, became Lord of Kinver in 1382, and there is a possibility that he was the son-in-law of Hugh Tyrell to whom Edward Ill granted Kinver 'for his better support in the order of knighthood'. Hugh Tyrell died in Brittany in 13113 (sic - 1313?), leaving infant sons, both of whom died childless, the younger, also Hugh, in 1382. However, a number of documents describe John Hampton as being 'the heir of Hugh Tyrell', so that it is possible that he was descended from a daughter of Hugh Tyrell, Senior.   Richard, John Hampton's grandfather,  belonged to a Wolverhampton family and the family had a small estate at Dunstall on the edge of Wolverhampton. Round about 1360 he held various minor offices under the Crown, but in 1365 he appears as Squire to the great General of the Black Prince, Sir John Chandos.     When Sir John Chandos was killed in a skirmish in Gascony in 1370, he became Squire to the Black Prince and on his death in 1376, became Squire to the Black Prince's son Richard, so that upon his accession he became the King's Squire. He was also Warden of Berkhampstead and Tintagel Castles. He died in 1388 and was succeeded by his son John Hampton

     |  |  |     |-7. John DE HAMPTON (son of Richard who died 1388 & Maud)  -of Stourton & Kinver (died 1433)   [From History, Gazetteer and Directory of Staffordshire, William White, Sheffield, 1851]   John Hampton Senior and his wife Hawise had at least two sons, John born about 1392 and Bevis; John and Bevis appear to have been very close and affectionate, so that one wonders if they were twins. They also had a sister, Goda. it seems likely that Bevis was named from a romantic fancy of his mother after the hero of a popular verse romance concerning one Bevis de Hampton; in the story he was the son of Guy, Earl of Southampton, whose wife, after she had procured the murder of her husband, sent her son Bevis as a slave to the Court of the Saracen King; after many adventures Bevis escaped with the Saracen's daughter, fled to Cologne and there they were married.    John Hampton Senior does not seem to have done anything noteworthy, except that in 1411, he was ordered to appear before the King because he had led away by guile and forcibly detained as a lay person, one Margaret Veal, who had been a Nun of the Priory of Nuneaton for the past nine years. At this date, Hawise was still alive but by 1420 she was dead and John Hampton Senior was married to a wife named Margaret so that it looks as if somehow he had got round the accusation. He died in 1433 and Margaret survived him and to provide for her the rents from Compton and Hyde Meadow (then called Steramoor), Gothersley and two other pieces of land were assigned to her for life. There is little doubt that the Hamptons lived at Stourton Castle; this was the Manor House for Kinver which they held by the Tenure of being Wardens of the Royal Black Prince. When Sir Forest of Kinver, for which they had to pay £9 yearly to the Crown, as a result of which rent in 1433 it was said that the Wardenship was worth nothing.   Repeated quote:   1385, Dec 9 - Westminster; Calendar of Patent Rolls:  License for William de Pakyngton, clerk, Simon de Burley, John Clanvowe, William de Nevill and William de Faryngdon, knight; William de Walshale and Richard Cokkes, to grant to RICHARD de HAMPTON, for life, at the  yearly fee farm of 9L, payable to the king, the manors of KYNEFARE (Kynesare) and STOURTON, with the custody of the forest of Kynefare (sic), co Stafford, whereof the said Richard enfeoffed them at that yearly farm payable to the king; with remainder to JOHN, son of Richard de Hampton, in tail male, and ultimate remainder to the right heirs of him, the said Richard.  By p.s. and by fine of 5 marks.     First wife was Hawise, second wife was Margaret who survived him.

    |  |  |     |  |-8. John DE HAMPTON (died without issue) (d.1472) of Kinver.  (son of John & Hawise) KINVER'S CHURCH and tomb of John Hampton:     Visitors to Kinver Church who are able to go into the Choir Vestry will observe that they are in a fine 15th Century Chapel. In it they will see the limbless trunk of the effigy of a man in armour; this is all that remains of what was probably a striking tomb which once contained the bodies of John Hampton, Esquire of the Body to King Henry VI, and of his first wife, Ann, who died in 1444 and for which John Hampton built the Chapel of St. Katherine and St. Anne so that Masses might be sung for his wife and himself.   The tomb was still in existence in the 18th Century, but seems to have been removed subsequently to provide a private pew for the Foley family.   On his father's death, one of the first things John and Bevis had to do was to confirm a settlement which their father had made in about 1401 with the villeins of Kinver; in 1398 they had refused any longer to carry out the customary services of ploughing and hoeing the Lord's demesne land and getting in his hay and they were apparently imprisoned for this; ultimately, however, a settlement seems to have been arrived at under which instead of performing the services, each villein paid the Lord thirty-seven shillings a year. There is a deed in existence setting this out and Bevis joined in as John Hampton's heir.    John Hampton also gave Dunstall to Bevis to have for his life together with property at Lichfield which seems to have come to his father as Hawise's dowry.    In the meantime and during his father's lifetime, John Hampton had begun to rise at the Court; in 1421 he was in charge of Henry V's armour in the Tower and was authorised to engage artificers for that purpose; in 1428 he was described as Squire of Henry VI and Usher of the Chamber and in 1430 he was made responsible for the operational movement of ordnance (artillery). He must have been well regarded by the Council who were ruling the Country (the King was only born in 1420), since by 1433 he had been appointed waterbailly of Plymouth and Sheriff of Merioneth, besides which he received £50 from the Exchequer and was entitled to take the £9 rent for himself payable for Kinver.    John Hampton, being part of the King's household was very close to the King and after the King in 11,36 (sic) became of age he became Esquire of the Body to the King. He was appointed Constable of Chester in 1436 and the same year Bevis was appointed Constable of Shrewsbury, surely by his brother's application to the King. In the course of the next few years John was granted annually £10 from Pendleston Mill, Bridgnorth, £50 from Coventry, £20 from Worcester and, jointly with Bevis, £8 from Wrockwardine in Shropshire; he also arranged that Bevis should be waterbailly of Plymouth jointly with him.   Numerous other grants were also made to him. Perhaps John's most important appointment however, was when he was appointed with the Bishop of Salisbury, the Earl of Suffolk and others in charge of the foundation of Eton College and there is little doubt that he fulfilled more than an honorary position. This was in 1442 and it was in 1444 that his first wife, Ann died. Could it be that the Chapel of St. Katharine and St. Anne was designed and built by the same people as designed and built Eton College?    In 1444 the King married Margaret of Anjou and John was made her Master of Horse and thus was in charge of all the transport arrangements to bring her to England and held this office until 1449.   Neither John nor Bevis had any children but in the past few years he had met John and Thomas Hampton of Stoke Charity in Hampshire and they had associated together.   In 1449 (possibly on the occasion of his marriage to another Ann), he settled his estates so that if neither he nor Bevis had children they should go to John Hampton of Hampshire and his heirs. They do not seem to have been related at all. (that sentence is part of the quote, but yes, they were related)    In 1451 however, disaster struck, for the King became insane and the Duke of York took over the rule of the country. One complaint against Henry VI was that he had frittered away the Royal estates by gifts to his courtiers and an Act of Parliament was passed cancelling all gifts made since the King came to the throne. John and Bevis lost all grants and offices, even those made before the King came of age.    However, when the King recovered next year they were restored. The same thing happened in 1454 when the King again became mad (but John was allowed to keep an annual grant of 40 marks); again they were restored next year.    By 1459 John was an old man and the King made final grants to him; but next year Warwick, the King Maker placed Edward IV, the Duke of York's son on the throne and John and Bevis loyal Lancastrians were on the wrong side. Exactly what happened next is not clear but it looks as if John was forced to transfer Kinver to Feoffees (Trustees) for the King but that he was allowed to continue for his life to live at Stourton Castle. At the same time Bevis had to transfer his Lichfield property to Halesowen Abbey to pray for the King, the Queen and Bevis and their souls, a most unlikely voluntary settlement by a Lancastrian. As a result, the Hampshire Hamptons never got Kinver although after Ann Hampton's death they got Dunstall.    There was a short-lived restoration of Henry VI in 1470 and John Hampton seized Kinver from the Feofees but at the Battle of Tewkesbury, Edward IV recovered the Kingdom and Henry VI was put to death shortly after.   John Hampton died in 1472 and was buried beside his first wife in his Chantry Chapel in a tomb inscribed: 'Hic jacet corpora Johan Hampton Armig et Agnet Conjugis ejus qui dies suos extremos clauserunt Johan an 1472 Agnes vero an 1444'.   (who was Agnes?!)
