About Sybil Scott, Heiress of the Barony of Bircholt

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Scott_of_Scott's_Hall

William Scott was the son of John Scott and Agnes Beaufitz, and was married to Sybilla Lewknor, the daughter of John Lewknor (killed at Battle of Tewkesbury) and Johanna Halsham. In her own right Sybilla owned lands in Appledore, Iden & Romney Marsh, including the Barony of Bircholt. Johanna Halsham who is buried at Ashford in Kent, was the heiress of her uncle Hugh Halsham of West Grinstead, and the grand daughter of the Countess of Athol. He inherited the manor of Brabourne in 1495, and had Scott's Hall elaborately rebuilt so that it came to be regarded as one of the foremost houses in Kent.

Sir William was buried at Brabourne church in Kent, England.
