1. John BLOUNT (Sir Knight)

The property of John Blount in Deddington (following Colvin, p. 108) consisted of 5 messuages, 300 acres of arable, 16 acres of meadow, 50 acres of pasture and 2 acres of wood in Deddington, Clifton and Hempton. Other sources say that in 1430/1 a John Gilbert gave to John Blount and his wife Alice a tenement called Tankervilles and various lands in Deddington, all bought of Roger Draper's son John. In 1432/3 John Blount owned 12 cows in Deddington (VCH, Oxon).

Colvin believes that John Blount's property in Deddington may have gone to his wife in dower after his death, and that "the Deddington property was certainly held in dower by a later lady of the family" (Colvin, op. cit., p. 108 note)


From another source (VCH Oxon.?) after the death of John Blount (1443) "Blount's manor" went to younger son John (II) and in 1489 the estate was sold by a Charles Blount to John Bustard and John Billing.

John Blount I was also in possession of Balterley, Staffs. at this time.
