  • Born by 1505, second but first surv. son of Edward Stourton, 6th Baron Stourton, by Agnes, dau. of John Fauntleroy of Marsh, nr. Sherborne, Dorset; brother of Roger. Married by 1524, Elizabeth, dau. of Edmund Dudley of Atherington, Suss., by whom he had at least seven sons, inc. Charles, William and Arthur; and two daughters. By his mistress, Agnes Ap Rhys, he had one illegitimate daughter. Kntd. 1 Nov 1523; suc. fa. as 7th Baron Stourton 13 Dec 1535. Servant of Charles Brandon, Duke of Suffolk by 1520; j.p. Dorset 1528-d., Som., Wilts. 1529-d.; commr. benevolence, Som., Wilts. 1544/45, musters Wilts. 1546; lt. army in Scotland Oct. 1545; dep. Newhaven (Ambleteuse) Jun 1546-d.
  • William Stourton began his career in the household of the Duke of Suffolk and his wife, Mary Tudor, ‘the French Queen’. In 1523 he went with Suffolk's army to France and was knighted at Roye. When in 1524 his father, Edward, succeeded as 6th Baron Stourton, he became heir to estates in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire. Made a justice in these three counties in 1528-9, in the autumn of 1529 he was a natural choice as one of the knights of the shire for Somerset. His Membership was, however, to prove a heavy commitment, and on 31 Dec 1531 he wrote to Cromwell asking that both his father, an aged and feeble man, and he should be excused attendance at the third session. Four years later he succeeded to the barony and took his seat in the Lords for the last session of this protracted Parliament. Whether he was replaced in the Commons is not known.
  • Beyond leading 200 men against the northern rebels in 1536, bearing the towel at the christening of Prince Edward and giving regular attendance in the Lords, he is not known to have taken much part in public affairs during the late 1530s and 40s. He was probably a conservative in religion, for he was a friend of Viscount Lisle and in Jul 1539 he wrote in favour of the Abbot of Glastonbury before his execution. He seems to have been foremost a soldier. On the outbreak of the war with Scotland in 1544 he joined the Earl of Hertford with the Wiltshire levies and fought in the Border campaigns of that and the following year. Commended for his good service by the commander, in 1546 he followed Hertford to France, where he was soon appointed deputy of Newhaven. His letters reflect his diligence and thoughtfulness in this office, which he was still holding when he died there on 16 Sep 1548.
  • The Stourtons were not among the wealthiest or most powerful of noble families but they loomed large in their own country. Between 1541 and 1545 the 7th Baron made large purchases of lands in Dorset, Somerset and Wiltshire, for which he paid some £4,500 to the crown and the 3rd Lord Ferrers. He was not on good terms with either his wife or his eldest son, Charles, whom in 1539 he angrily described to Cromwell as a ‘false hypocrite’ and worthy of the King's Bench or Marshalsea, a verdict which fell short of the 8th Baron's eventual fate.
  • By his will of 8 Sep 1548 he left nothing to his wife or to his younger sons, and little to his eldest, whom none the less he named executor. The greater part of his goods and household stuff he bequeathed to his mistress Agnes Ap Rhys, dau. of Catherine Howard, Lady Bridgewater, by her first husband: Agnes, who bore him a daughter, claimed that a legal marriage had taken place between them in 1545, at Stourton Chapel, even though Stourton's wife was living, but this was rejected in several legal actions and the will itself was quashed by probate act of 1548. Administration of his father's goods was then granted to Charles, the new Baron Stourton.

Wilts., by Catherine, his wife, daughter of Henry, Lord Beaumont, confirmed by Hoare's copy of the College of Arms pedigree and by Edmondson. Collins placed him as eldest son of Sir John Stourton, by his second wife, Jane, daughter of Ralph, Lord Basset. Harleian MS. 1074 shewed him as eldest son of John Stourton without giving his mother's name. John Stourton, of Preston, senior, described himself in his will as brother of William Stourton, son and heir of John Stourton, sometime Lord of Stourton. In the inscription to Edith Stourton's memory she is called "Editha Soror' Will'i Storton." He appears to have been one of her trustees of the Manor of Ashmore, Co. Dorset. Sir William Dugdale started his pedigree of the Stourton family with this Sir William Stourton, stating that the family was of great antiquity in Wiltshire, taking its denomination from the town of Stourton, and it from the river Stoure, on the bank whereof it was situated.

Nevertheless, the marriage is said to have taken place January 6th, 1545-46. Lord Stourton, in leaving her a legacy under his Will (as will be seen later), describes her, however, as "Mrs.
  • https://archive.org/stream/historyofnobleho01mowb#page/313/mode/1up
  • Pg.313
  • Agnes Ryse, dau. of the Countess of Bridgewater."(*) Lady Stourton was then (in 1548, when the will was made) living, and, in fact, survived Lord Stourton, not dying until 1560. Agnes Ryce (or Ryse) sued Lord Stourton's son in her maiden name after the death of Lord Stourton, and continued to so use it in all the proceedings. It has been stated, however, that, as "Agnes Stourton," widow, she administered to the will of William, 7th Lord Stourton, in July, 1557. It will, however, be shortly seen from the will itself that probate was granted of this same will on two occasions, viz., November 25th, 1548, immediately following upon the death of William, 7th Lord Stourton, and again on July 15th, 1557, after the execution and attainder of Charles, 8th Lord Stourton. Anne (not Agnes) Stourton, named in the later act of probate, was the widow of Charles, Lord Stourton, not of his predecessor. When Agnes Ryse married Sir Edward Baynton after Lord Stourton's death, she married him in her maiden name. The assertion in Collins's " Peerage " (taken from the Gentleman's Magazine) that she married Lord Stourton is certainly not proved by the evidence he brought forward to substantiate his contention. The allegation in the deed of 9th October, 1573, of Richard Gore, who had married Mary, daughter of Agnes Ryse, is hardly evidence admissible in law. There was nothing to prevent Richard Gore describing his wife Mary as a daughter of William, Lord Stourton, by Agnes Ryse, his wife. And although under the deed he appointed (nearly thirty years afterwards) Richard Askew as his lawful attorney, to enter on the lands of Lord Stourton and take possession for Mary Gore as the alleged daughter and sole heir of the 7th Lord, it is known that this had no effect. This Mary was the only issue of Lord Stourton and Agnes Ryse, and it is worthy of note that, in a pedigree recorded in the College of Arms (I., ix., p. 83), in which she appears as the wife of Richard Gore, no suggestion of bastardy is made, though her legitimacy is almost impossible. Charles, 8th Lord Stourton, moreover, undoubtedly succeeded his father as son and heir, inheriting the Peerage and all Lord Stourton's estates. The mere fact that the Court of Probate granted the 8th Lord Stourton Letters of Administration, with his father's will annexed, would seem to be prima facie evidence that Lord Stourton must have been the "natural and lawful son" of the testator. When Charles, Lord Stourton, sued Agnes Ryse, witnesses tried, but failed in the attempt, to prove that she was the legal wife of Lord Stourton. In the Inquisition Post Mortem of William, 7th Lord Stourton, Sir Charles Stourton, Knight (afterwards 8th Lord Stourton), was found to be the next heir. This was a complete answer in support of the validity of
  • https://archive.org/stream/historyofnobleho01mowb#page/314/mode/1up
