Noted events in his life were:
• Manorial Estate, 1499, Iping Manor, Midhurst, West Sussex, GU29, GB. 3 IPING, which was held of the Confessor by Oualet, was not included in the lands given to Earl Roger, but in 1086 was held directly of King William by Eldred (of Winchester). It was rated at 4 hides; there was a mill, a quarry worth 9s. 4d., and extensive woodland; one haw in Chichester belonged to the manor, and 40d. was received from circet, or church-scot. Towards the end of the 12th century the manor was in the hands of Richard Musard, who gave to Lewes Priory 'the hide of Trepeham with croft and meadow' in Iping. In 1212 this gift was confirmed by Richard's son and heir William Musard, who subsequently added 'the land which is called Hooe' in a charter to which his wife Joan and his heir William gave their consent. The manor evidently descended in the family, as in 1330 William Musard died seised of the manor of Iping, then said to be held of Herbert de St. Quintin, whose connexion with it is otherwise unknown; William's son and namesake was 'of Iping' in 1339, in which year Sir Henry Husee of Hastings acknowledged a debt to him of 100 marks. It seems probable that this was for the purchase of the manor, which is next found, in 1370, in the hands of Sir Henry Husee, and in 1390 in those of Ankarette his widow at the time of her death. In 1412 Henry Husee held 2/3 of the manor, the other being dower of his mother Margaret, and he and the Prior of Lewes held jointly ½ knight's fee in Iping in 1428. Henry Lovell, who had married Constance, one of the two daughters and coheirs of Nicholas Husee (d. 1472), in 1499 quitclaimed all right in the manor and advowson to John Goring, whose father John (d. 1495) had probably purchased them some years before, as he was patron of the church in 1483. John's great-grandson George Goring sold in 1576 to John Selwyn of Friston.
John married Joan Hewster, daughter of Humphrey Hewster of London and Joan.
