1. Sir Reynold Malyns


  • Marriage (1): Sir Reynold Malyns
  • Died: After 1390 1


Manorial Estate, 1385-1390, Theydon Mount Manor, Theydon Mount, Epping, Essex, CM16, GB. 1 In 1322 John de Sutton leased the manor for twelve years to Henry de Malyns and in the following year released to him all his right in the property. Malyns must have died soon after, for in 1324 John de Sutton released his right in the manor to Edmund de Malyns, Henry's son and heir. In 1326 Edmund was pardoned for acquiring in fee this property which was held in chief of the Honor of Rayleigh and entering upon it without licence. In 1346 he held knight's fee in Theydon Mount.

Sir John de Sutton of Dudley (Worc.), son of the above John and Margaret de Sutton, disputed de Malyns' title to the manor, claiming that it descended to him after the death of his parents. In 1348 and again in 1350 the matter was heard before the court of Common Pleas, but Malyns evidently won his case. He was apparently alive in 1357 but had been succeeded by his son Reynold Malyns before December 1361, when the latter presented to the rectory of Theydon Mount. Sir Reynold died in 1384 holding the manor jointly with his wife Florence. His son and heir was Edmund Malyns. Florence was still holding the manor in 1390. In 1400 the manor was conveyed by Thomas Waller and two others, presumably feoffees, to Reynold Malyns and his wife Alice and the heirs of Reynold. In 1418 Reynold and Alice conveyed the manor of Theydon Mount and Hill Hall to feoffees to hold of the chief lords with successive remainders to the heirs of Reynold and then to Edmund Hampden and his heirs. In 1428 Reynold was found to hold fee in Theydon Mount formerly held by Richard de Sutton. He died in 1431. There is no specific reference to Theydon Mount in his will, nor any mention of children, and in 1434 Alice his widow released her right in the manor to Sir Hugh Halsham, kt., and others who held it by her feoffment.

Florence married Sir Reynold Malyns, son of Edmund Malyns and Unknown. (Sir Reynold Malyns died on 2 Aug 1384 2.)
