Geoffrey Colman of Morton, Worcestershire

  • Marriage (1): Unknown

   Another name for Geoffrey was Geoffrey Colmon.1


Manorial Estate, 1357, Morton Underhill Manor, Inkberrow, Worcester, Worcestershire, WR7, GB. 2 MORTON UNDERHILL (Morton-next-Inteberg, xiii cent.; Comynes Morton, xiv cent.; Mourton Underhill, xv cent.) was held of the manor of Great Inkberrow.


The tenant under the lords of Great Inkberrow in the middle of the 13th century was perhaps Adam le Boteler, as he granted to the hospital of St. Wulfstan a load of corn annually at Thorne. In a return of knights' fees belonging to the manor of Inkberrow taken in 1375\endash 6 it is stated that James de Boys had held Thorne, and, as a James de Boys paid a subsidy of 4s. 6d. at Inkberrow in 1280, he was probably holding Thorne at that time. Part of the manor passed before 1346 to Christine de Boys, for at that date she held it jointly with John Gerard, Nicholas Somery, Philip le Freeman and Geoffrey Colman. The last-named had been dealing with land in Thorne in 1330\endash 1, and was evidently a descendant of Roger Colman, who paid a subsidy of 2s. 6d. at Inkberrow in 1280. In 1357\endash 8 Geoffrey Colman seems to have transferred his interest in the manor to Thomas son of John [must be Robert] de Throckmorton.


The Throckmortons seem to have retained the interest in the manor acquired from Geoffrey Colman in 1357\endash 8, for, though no deeds have been found relating to this part of the manor from that time until 1581, Sir Robert Throckmorton then died seised of the manor, which followed the same descent as Throckmorton until 1604\endash 5, when it was sold by Thomas Throckmorton to Edward Turvey and John Surman.

Geoffrey married.
