  • MAUNSER, Michael, of Midhurst,, Suss.
  • Offices Held
    • Tax collector, Suss. Sept. 1431.
  • Biography
  • Maunser came from a local family, one of whose number, Roger, had been assessed at Midhurst for the poll tax of 1379. He himself served as a juror at two coroners’ inquests held there in January 1402, then indicting the lord of the borough, Sir John Bohun, together with his servants, for the murder of William Baggele*. Bohun’s men took their revenge a month later by lying in wait to ambush Maunser and John Ive II*, a fellow juror, but they apparently escaped.1
  • Maunser witnessed a deed at Midhurst in March 1422 on behalf of Thomas Westlond*. Another close associate was Michael Baggele* (son of the man murdered in 1401): together, in 1428, they acted as trustees of properties at Midhurst, West Dean, and Easebourne, which were then settled on John atte Wode and his wife; and they both attested the enfeoffment made by Sir John Bohun and his wife, Anne, of their manors of Midhurst and Easebourne in September 1430. Evidently, they were now reconciled to Sir John. Maunser was a member of the jury which at Midhurst in October 1431 gave evidence to the escheator about the landed possessions of Thomas Baggele, Michael’s brother, who had been burnt at the stake as a convicted heretic earlier that year. He and Michael were among the eight leading burgesses of Midhurst who, in April 1432, reached an agreement with Sir John Bohun whereby the town’s liberties were confirmed and enlarged.2

  • After the entire estate had been remitted to the Bohuns, Franco's grandson John died without children, and was succeeded by his brother James, who married the heiress of Wm. de Braose, of Bramber. Their only child was the most distinguished of the family, fighting at Cressy, in 1346, endowing the Benedictine Nunnery of Easebourne, and dying

  • in 1367, after having been summoned to Parliament, from 1363 to 1366, as Lord Bohun of Midhurst. His second wife, Cecilia, was another heiress, and she brought the good estates of the Filiols, of Essex. Their only child, another John, lived for 57 years after his father's death.
  • This John seems to have been a troublesome person, for among the Bills in Chancery, perferred to Thomas Arundel, Archbishop of York, whilst Chancellor (15 to 20 Rich. II.) is one from the Burgesses of Midhurst, praying that he might find fresh securities in L40, to keep the peace, the sureties already given, viz., John Bramshote and William Tailard, not having tenements of that value.
  • When he died, he left Midhurst for his feoffees (men of note in Sussex) to grant to his widow Anne, which they did on 4th January, 1440 [18 Hen. VI.]

  • That he married late in life is clear, for his eldest son, Humphrey, was only 14 when his father died. This Humphrey died about 50 years old, for his will was made on 2nd Nov., 1468, and proved ten days after. .... etc.
