EVA de Briouse (-20 Jul 1255). A manuscript which narrates the descents of the founders of Lanthony Abbey names "Isabella, Matildis, Eva et Alianora" as the four daughters of "Willielmus de Brews quartus" and his wife "Evam filiam domini Willielmi Mareschalli", adding that Eva married "Willielmo de Cauntello". The Chronicle of Tintern Abbey, Monmouthshire names "Matilda, Alianora et Eva" as the three daughters of "Willielmo de Brewes" and his wife "quinta filia…Willihelmi Marescalli…Eva", adding that "Eva tertia filia" married "Willielmo de Cantilupo", by whom she was mother of "Georgius" who died childless and "Johanna nupta Henrico de Hastings et Milisannt de Monte-alto…uxor Ivonis de la Zouch". A charter dated 26 May 1250 records the restoration of property, granted to "Margaret Countess of Lincoln", to "William de Vescy and Agnes his wife, Reginald de Moun and Isabel his wife, William de Fortibus and Matilda his wife, Francis de Boun and Sibil his wife, William de Vallibus and Alienor his wife, John de Moun and Joan his wife, Agatha de Ferrers in the king's custody, Roger de Mortimer and Matilda his wife, and William de Cantilupe and Eva his wife". Heiress of Abergavenny. The Annals of Dunstable record that "domina Eva uxor Willelmi de Cantilupo" died "circa festum Sanctæ Margaretæ" in 1255.

[Complete Peerage I:22-3]


The rump was probably granted c. 1199 to Fulk de Cauntelo, who in the early 13th century held it at a fee-farm rent of £15. It was later called CALNE manor, at Calne apparently consisted of little more than a mill and the right to hold courts and receive customary rents and payments, and was held with Calstone manor by Fulk from 1201-2. The two manors descended together mainly in the Cauntelo, Zouche, and Duckett families, and from 1763 they were held by successive owners of Bowood House. Calne manor, unlike Calstone manor, was held in dower by Eve de Cauntelo (fl. 1255), the relict of William de Cauntelo (d. 1254), and was not held by the relicts who held Calstone manor in dower in the late 14th century and the 15th. The combined estate was often called the manor of Calne and Calstone.
