Manorial Estate, 1350-1361, East Stoke (or Stokett) Manor, Stoke-sub-Hamdon, Somerset, TA14, GB. 5 The manor of EAST STOKE or STOKETT was held by Alwin T.R.E. In 1086 Mauger de Cartrai held it of the count of Mortain. By c. 1284 Ralph de Huppehull or Opehulle held it of Maud de Multon, lady of Ashill, and she of the countess of Aumale. Mauger was also Domesday tenant of Ashill, and it is therefore probable that his holding at East Stoke may have descended like Ashill.

Ralph de Huppedhull's estate at Stokett c. 1284 was fee. By 1297 Ralph de Hull, possibly the same man, had apparently leased his lands there which became the subject of a legal dispute. The property seems to have descended like the manor of Child Okeford (Dors.), to the Latimer family. Robert de Hull held that manor in 1317. His daughter and heir Catherine married as her first husband Sir Andrew Turberville, who was in possession of Stokett by 1350. As her second husband Catherine married Sir Robert Latimer of Duntish (Dors.). When she died in 1361, shortly after her second husband, she was succeeded by her son William Turberville. By 1381, however, William had died without male issue, and Robert Latimer, his halfbrother, succeeding John Rocheford, had taken possession of the property.

The estate then descended through the Latimer family. Sir John, son of Catherine's son Robert, died in 1460, and was succeeded by his son Sir Nicholas (d. 1505). Nicholas's daughter and heir Edith married Sir John Mordaunt (d. 1504), of Turvey (Beds.), speaker of the House of Commons, and Stokett and other lands were settled on them. By 1560 it was held by John, eldest son of John, Lord Mordaunt (d. 1562), though the capital messuage was in the hands of John Buckland of West Harptree. John's heir Lewis, Lord Mordaunt (1538-1601), sold the property to Thomas Freke in 1597. In 1627 John Seward died holding the manor, described as a capital messuage, a farm called the farm of East Stokett, and named lands. He was succeeded by his infant son, also John. John Seward and Elizabeth his wife made over the manor in 1649 to two feoffees. From that time no trace has been found of the manor; the estate centred upon East Stoke House, created in the late 18th century by the Chaffey family, never claimed manorial status, but was built up piecemeal from scattered holdings in the area of the original manor.
