Henry L, from whom in direct succession from father to son, came Ralph, Sir Richard, Sir Ralph, Sir Richard, obt. 33 Henry III., Eobert, and Sir Ralph, who married Alice, daughter of Wolfric of Quixhall, sister of Adam Venator, by whom he was father of Richard, who by Agnes, sister of Eobert de Say of Morton Say, had a son Richard, father by Isabel, his wife, of Nicholas Sandford of Sandford, who married Alice, third daughter of William Boteler, first Lord Boteler of Wem. Ralph Butler, or Boteler of Oversley, Co. Warwick, the grandfather of this William, had married Maud, or Matilda, daughter and heir of William de Pantulph, son of Hugh Pantulph, Baron of Wemme, by whom he was father of William, who gave to the monks of Alcester 60 acres of land lying at flinstock, in Shropshire, and the advowsoD of the Church. He died in the twelfth year of Edward I., leaving by Angharad his wife, niece of James de Alditheley, (Dugdale calls her Beatrix), three sons. John the eldest, who was sixteen years old at his father's death, succeeded, and Walter de Beauchamp of Alcester, obtained from the King the right to marry him to his daughter Eleanor, but if she died to some other daughter, and if he died his next heir was bound to marry one of Beauchamp's daughters. This John died without issue 15 Edward I., and his brother Gawine, who was seventeen years old at his brother's death, succeeded him, but also died without issue, whereupon William, the third brother, and the one to whom allusion is made above succeeded, and so ingratiated himself with the King that he forgave him the debt due on behalf of the service of Maud, his grandmother, in the tenth year of King Edward's reign. He died 8 Edward III., and William was his son and heir. Bankes says—" This family took its name from Ralph Boteler, who filled the office of Boteler or Butler to Robert, Earl of Leicester. The wife of William, Lord Boteler, and mother of Alice, was, we are told, Angharad daughter of Griffin. Nicholas Sandford of Sandford, (quarterly per fess indented erm. and az), died 3 Henry V.,leaving, by Alice his wife, three sons, Richard, Griffin, and Nicholas of the Lee, near Whitchurch. The eldest son Richard, married Maud, daughter and heir of William Banaster of Hadnal, and it is worthy of remark that a Banaster of Hadnal had married Margaret, daughter and heiress of Robert Hussey, by Ellena, heiress of Lacon, (quarterly per fess indented az. and erm.) John Sandford, their son, married secondly Julia, daughter of Robert Corbet of Morton Corbet, and had a son Richard Sandford, who by Jane daughter and coheir of Humphrey Peshall of Knightley, Co. Stafford, had issue Hugh Sandford, who died in 1530, having had by Jane, daughter of John Dodd of Cloverley, and Elizabeth, his wife, daughter of Sir Ralph Egerton of Ridley, with others a daughter, Elizabeth Sandford, wife of John Barker of Coulshurst, whose son John Barker of Wolverton, had by Elizabeth, sister and coheir of Sir Rowland Hill, first Protestant Lord Mayor of London, a son James Barker of Haghmond Abbey, father, by Dorothy, daughter of Richard Clive of Styche, (where he died 1562), of a son Richard, who married Dorothy, daughter and heir of William Poyner of Beslow, Co. Salop, and by her had a daughter and elder coheir, Mary Barker, wife of Nicholas Waring of Woodcote, obt. 28th December, 1630. But to return, Griffin, the second son left issue William, and William the third son (who is also designated of Calverhall), obtained a grant of the Lee, near Whitchurch, in 1426, and was father of Thomas Sandford of the Lee, living as late as 1466, whose son William Sandford of the Lee, was the husband of Sibilla, daughter and coheir of Sir Fulke Sprencheaux, Lord of Donington and Plash, who brought Edgton, Bayston, Bomere and Alselde, (now Allfield), into the family. Their son Richard Sandford of Alselde, living as late as 1547, married Jane, daughter of William Bromley of Hodnet, whose wife Beatrix, was daughter of

Humphrey Hill of Blore and Buntingsdale. She was also sister of William Hill of Blore, and of Thomas of Malpas and Hodnet, whose only sen by Margaret, daughter of Thomas Wilbraham of Woodhay, Bowland, was first Protestant Lord Mayor of London, and who died without issue, leaving his sisters coheirs, of whom Elizabeth, was wife of John Barker of Haghmond, previously mentioned, and Johanna, was wife of John Gratewood of Wollerton, Co.
