• Manorial Estate, 1402-1441, Chalgrove Manor, Chalgrove, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX44, GB. 2 Barentin's Manor Drew Barentin (d. 1264 or 1265) was succeeded by his son (or possibly nephew) William Barentin (d. 1290 or 1291). The manor then passed in the direct male line to Drew (d. 1329), Thomas (d. c.1364), Thomas (d. 1400), Reynold (d. 1441), Drew (d. 1453), and John Barentin (d. 1474). John's son John was beset by financial difficulties, and in 1485 sold the manor to Thomas Danvers on behalf of William Waynflete, bishop of Winchester, who used it to endow Magdalen College, Oxford.
• Manorial Estate, 1402-1441, Little Haseley Manor, Little Haseley, Oxford, Oxfordshire, OX44, GB. 3 In 1391 Little Haseley was bought by the wealthy London goldsmith Drew Barentin and his brother Thomas, lord of neighbouring Chalgrove. After Drew died childless in 1415 the manor passed to the Chalgrove Barentins, who by the mid 15th century were making Little Haseley their principal seat. John Barentins' widow Elizabeth retained custody during the minority of their son John (d. 1485), who sold Chalgrove, and whose son William came of age in 1502. He served as MP and died in 1549, to be succeeded first by his son Francis (d. 1559) and later by Francis's sister Mary (d. 1581), the wife of Anthony Huddleston.
