E 152/446, no.2

Manorial Estate: Hilperton Manor, Hilperton, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14, GB. 2 In 1086 there were two tenants at HILPERTON holding of the king in chief. Ansger the cook held 4 hides, 1 virgate, and 6 acres; William Corniole 5 hides, 1 virgate; Godwin 'Clec' 1 virgate, and Eldild 1 hide, 6 acres formerly held by her husband. (fn. 19)

In 1242 there were two overlords of the manor: the Earl of Salisbury who held 1/5 of a fee as part of the honour of Trowbridge (q.v.), and Ralph Mortimer who held 1 fee. (fn. 20) The overlordship of the Salisbury fee descended with the honour of Trowbridge which became annexed to the Duchy of Lancaster. The overlordship of the Mortimers' fee descended in that family to the Mortimers, Earls of March, and was merged in the Crown on the accession of Edward IV. (fn. 21)

Under the two overlords of 1242 both parts of the manor were held by the same terre-tenant. Humphrey de Scoville held the Salisbury portion directly of the earl, and the Mortimer portion of Alan de la Zouche, who held it of Ralph de Mortimer. (fn. 22) It is likely that Humphrey's father, Ralph de Scoville, had also held both parts, for in 1205 Humphrey paid a mark for the enrolment of the grant made to him by his father of the manor of Hilperton. (fn. 23)

In 1282 Baldwin de Scoville, Humphrey's son, conveyed the portion of the manor held of the honour of Trowbridge to John de Taney and Gwenllian his wife. (fn. 24) In the following year John and Gwenllian conveyed it to Walter de Bareville and his brother William for their lives in exchange for property elsewhere. (fn. 25) By 1303 Hilperton had reverted to John de Taney, who that year conveyed it to Walter de Paveley, Joan his wife, and their son Walter. (fn. 26)

In 1274 the Mortimers' moiety was held by Baldwin de Scoville under Roger de la Zouche who held it of Roger Mortimer. (fn. 27) The sub-tenancy of the Scovilles seems to have ceased soon after this, for in 1304 Alan de la Zouche was holding of Edmund Mortimer, and there is no mention of any other sub-tenant. (fn. 28) In 1323 it was conveyed to Walter de Paveley by Richard de Pevensey and Ella his wife. (fn. 29) The two portions were thus united under Walter de Paveley.

Walter de Paveley was followed by his son Walter who died in 1375. (fn. 30) The property passed to Edward son of Walter the younger who also died in 1375 only a few months after his father, and was succeeded by his brother Walter. (fn. 31) This Walter appears to have died childless, for Hilperton passed to the heirs of Walter de Paveley, grandfather of Edward and Walter, by his second wife Alice. (fn. 32) One of these heirs, Joan, wife of Sir Ralph Cheyney, received the moiety held of the Earl of March, (fn. 33) while the moiety held of the honour of Trowbridge was divided between Eleanor wife of Richard Seymour and Joan wife of John Chidiock. (fn. 34)

Joan Chidiock's share of the manor of Hilperton passed to her grandson John. John died in 1540 leaving two daughters as coheiresses. (fn. 35) Hilperton went to the younger of these, Margaret wife of William Stourton, and passed to Margaret's grandson William, Lord Stourton. (fn. 36) In 1543 Lord Stourton sold Hilperton along with other property to Thomas Long, clothier, of Trowbridge. (fn. 37)

This part of the manor now became known as HILPERTON STOURTON and passed in the Long family until 1640. In that year Edmund Long and Dorothy his wife sold it to Sir John Danvers. (fn. 38) Sir John was attainted as a regicide in 1661 and Hilperton Stourton with other property was granted to Henry Hyde, Lord Cornbury, and others, who were to act as trustees to pay off Sir John's debts. (fn. 39) Before the beginning of the 18th century Hilperton Stourton passed to John Eyles. (fn. 40)

Eleanor Seymour's share in Hilperton passed after her husband's death to Nicholas de Seymour for life with reversion to Eleanor's grand-daughter Alice, wife of Sir William la Zouche. (fn. 41) Alice was followed by her son William, Lord Zouche, who died in 1468 and was succeeded by his son John, aged 8. (fn. 42) In 1539 John's son, another John, conveyed it to his youngest son George. (fn. 43) George Zouche sold it in 1543 to Thomas Long who had bought Hilperton Stourton. (fn. 44) From this date these two parts of Hilperton follow the same descent.

Joan Cheyney's moiety of the manor of Hilperton passed to her daughter Cecily, who died in 1430. (fn. 45) It then passed to Cecily's youngest son John, of Pinhoe in Devonshire. (fn. 46)
