  General Notes:

Agnes Hussey had as temporary assignment of dower August 27, 1290 Standen Hussey manor, according to "History of Berkshire." She was afterwards dowered in Tidworth manor, Wiltshire; Moreton manor, Berkshire; Missenden manor, Buckinghamshire and 1/3 of Freefolk manor, Hampshire, having renounced her rights in Harting manor and other manors. She had license June 6, 1300 to marry Piers de Brewes, "if she would."

Apparently Sir Piers de Brewes was the father of Sir Thomas de Brewes who was summoned to Parliament in 1348. In 1307 Piers de Brewes was shown as holding North Tidworth manor "holding in the right of Agnes Husee, his wife" in an inquisition taken at Upavene, Wiltshire. She received an order May 3, 1324 to "replevy to her, her woods of Shottewode and Heywode in Savernake Forest, taken for trespass." Agnes Hussey de Brewes continued to live April 8, 1326 when she "had respite of scutage on lands held in dower" in Buckinghamshire.
