  • Sir John Stourton, by Catherine, daughter of Henry, Lord Beaumont, had issue an only son and heir : —
    • i. — Sir William Stourton, Lord of the Manor and Advowson of Stourton, held of the Castle of Cary, Co. Somerset, father of Sir John Stourton, created Baron of Stourton, Co. Wilts., and of whom afterwards.
  • Sir John Stourton, by his second wife, Jane or Joan, daughter of Ralph, Lord Basset, had issue : —
    • ii. — John Stourton, of Brimpton and Preston, Co. Somerset, of which Manor of Brimpton he was Lord. The Armorial Seals at Wells, Co. Somerset, shew the seal of this John Stourton, to be only a Griffin's head between the letters I. S., as appended to Letters of Attorney, of 26th January, 1432, in which he, and his nephew, Sir John Stourton, knight, afterwards created Baron of Stourton, Co. Wilts. ; his relative, William Carent ; and his brother. Master Richard Stourton, clerk, had seisen of lands in Melesburgh and Wokey-Hole, in Wells Forum, Co. Somerset, granted to them by John Palton, Esquire, by deed of 5th January, 1432(*). In the agreement, dated at Wells, 29th September, 14 Henry VI., relating to the building of Bishop Bubwith's Almshouses in Wells, this John Stourton, was a party as "senior" and "Esquire," which follows the description in his will, the senior being presumably used to distinguish him from his nephew. Sir John, afterwards Lord Stourton(f), for he had no sons. From two Inquisitions(+), which passed between the 7 and 8 Henry VI. , he, and others, gave and granted to the Dean and Chapter of the Cathedral Church of St. Andrew's, in Wells, the Manor of Bishop's-Kingsbury, with 14 messuages. Dovecote, 160 acres of land, 12 1/2 acres of meadow, 10 acres of pasture, and 5s. rent, in Estlangbroke ; 2 tofts [4 tofts in one Inquisition] 4 gardens, 12 acres of land, 4 acres of meadow, and 30 acres of pasture, in Hethorne, Co. Somerset. He was called John or Jenkyn Stourton(§), In 1402 John Stourton witnessed a composition then agreed to between the Dean and Chapter of Wells, and
      • (*) These deeds are also given in the Genealogist, new series, Vol. VIII., from a careful research by Arthur J. Jewers, F.S.A,, who wrongly identifies him as younger son, instead of uncle of Sir John Stourton, created Baron of Stourton, Co. Wilts.
      • (f) At this date it is presumed John Stourton, son of Roger Stourton, was dead.

    • .... All John Stourton's landed property he had previously settled on his daughters, in his lifetime, and when his Inquisition was taken after his death, at Yeovil, in 17 Henry VI., 1439, he was called John Stourton, Esquire, of Preston, not Brimpton, and it was proved and found by the Jurors that he then held no lands, hereditaments and premises within the County of Somerset, his three daughters, (1) Cecily, wife of Thomas Kuriel, knight, aged 34 years ; (2) Johanna, wife of John Sydenham, Esquire, aged 21 years ; and (3) Alice Stourton, aged 7 years ; were his coheirs at law. These daughters were respectively children by each of his three wives, and the Inquisition is important as deciding the priority of their births. In Harleian MS., No. 1074, his first wife was erroneously given as his second one, with her name in blank, and his second wife was consequently placed as his first one, and in a pedigree prepared in 1509, there was also some confusion made in his three wives, although more care was used in ascertaining the child by each marriage, excepting as to their priority of birth. John Stourton's first wife was Joan, daughter of William Banastre, Lord of the Manors of Wheathill, Radstock, &c(*)., widow of Robert Aff'eton, living in 1395(!). He founded an obiit to "Pray for the soul of Joan, sometime the wife of John Stourton(+}." By her he had one daughter and heir, eventually a coheir : — .... etc.

    • ii. — Roger Stourton is not shewn in the old pedigree of 1509, or Harleian Manuscript 1074, nor by Edmondson. Hoare's copy of the College of Arms pedigree points to him as being prior of Winton, although Collins merely mentions him as third son and having died without issue. It is very possible, as we shew on page 64, there were two Rogers living at this time, both sons of Johns, and if so it is likely that the Roger Stourton, prior of Winton, was really son of John Stourton, whom we have found was son of Roger Stourton, Lord of Horningsham. Therefore we assume Roger Stourton, with whom we are now dealing, not to have been prior of Winton, and identify him as Roger Stourton, of Preston, who married Alice, daughter and one of the three coheirs of John de la Bere, who was Lord of Thornton, in Gillingham, Co. Dorset, by Alice, his wife, afterwards wife of John Winford, from whom John Stourton, of Preston, elder brother of our Roger Stourton, acquired Brimpton Manor, Church, and Chantry, as shewn under his name. In 5 Henry V., Roger Stourton, and Alice, his wife, convened to trustees and their heirs the reversion of a third part of the Manor and Advowson of Thornton, as also in 40 acres of land and 20 acres of pasture in Thornton, as well as in 60 acres of land, 12 acres of meadow, 40 acres of pasture, and £12 rent in Great and Little Kington and Weston, which John Wynford, and Alice, his wife, widow of John de la Bere, then held for the life of Alice Wynford, which premises after her death ought to revert to the said .... etc.

    • iii. — Richard Stourton, is not shewn either by the old pedigree of 1509, Harleian Manuscript 1074, or Edmondson. Hoare and Collins both shew him in their pedigrees of the family and as having died sine prole. He appears to have been in Holy Orders and instituted to the rectory of Gillingham, Co. Dorset, by the Abbess of Shaftesbury, on the 8th Feb., 1405. It is, however, alleged he married Eleanor, daughter and coheir of Richard de Bosco, which appears in part confirmed when we call to mind that the arms of de Bosco were actually blended with those of Daubeney, Stourton, and Moyne on the dexter side of the monument in Little Cheney Church. As Master Richard Stourton, rector of the Prebendary Church of Gillingham, he had grant ad. cum test., as administrator of Morgan Googh, of his brother, Sir William Stourton's will, 23rd Sept., 1413, which had been proved alone

    • Pg.91
    • by his and the testator's brother, Sir John Stourton, of Preston, the preceding day, as Morgan Googh, another executor, had predeceased the testator. He is found in the deeds .... , but Mr. Jewers wrongly described him as a younger son, instead of as uncle of John, 1st Lord Stourton. His death can be fixed somewhere about the 13th May, 1437, on which date the next rector of Gillingham was instituted on his death in his place. This was 11 years before the barony of Stourton was created by patent. His aunt, Mary Stourton, was a nun at Shaftesbury, and his sister, Margaret Stourton, was Abbess there, having been confirmed and received the benediction, 9th December, 1423, and died 30th October, 1441. So she was actually the Patroness of Gillingham during a portion of the time Master Richard Stourton was rector there. His sister, Anastatia Stourton, was, like her aunt, Mary Stourton, also a nun at Shaftesbury. Under their names mention is made of the Stourton arms having been found in the ruins of Shaftesbury Abbey. See under Sir William Stourton for Morgan Googh.
    • iv. — Huskin Stourton is neither mentioned in the old pedigree of 1509, Harleian Manuscript 1074, Edmondson nor Collins, but only in Hoare's copy of the College of Arms pedigree, and as having died sine prole.
    • v. — Edmund Stourton is not mentioned in any of the above pedigrees, excepting in that of Collins, who says he died without issue. Possibly Collins wrongly identified him, for he might really have been a son of that John Stourton, who was son of Roger Stourton, Lord of Horningsham.
    • vi. — Edith Stourton, whom the Visitation for Co. Beds, erroneously called daughter and heir of John, Lord Stourton, although the Visitation for Co. York leaves his name in blank, but from an inscription(*) it was recorded, "Hie jacet Editha soror' Will'i Storton, quondam uxor' D'ni Joh'is Beau- champ, militis, et post uxor' D'ni Roberti Shottesbroke, militis, qui obiit xiii. die Junii anno domini 1441(!), cui' a'n'e p'pi'etr Deus." Edmondson
    • https://archive.org/stream/historyofnobleho01mowb#page/92/mode/1up
    • Pg.92
    • erroneously placed her as a child of her father's first marriage, but Haare and Collins both mentioned her as part issue of the second marriage. She and both her husbands were recorded in the Visitation for Co. Beds., and in Harleian MS. 1074, a fuller account is given of her, shewing the inscription to her first husband and that inscribed to her own memory, wherein she was called sister of William Stourton, sometime wife of Sir Thomas Beauchamp, knight, and after wife of Sir Robert Shottesbroke, knight. Under her brother, John Stourton, of Preston, it is seen that the heirs of the body of his sister, Edith, called late wife of Sir Robert Shottesbroke, knight, had the next remainder in certain of his property, contingent on his three daughters dying without issue, which they did not do. She married (1) Sir John Beauchamp, knight, of Bletsho, Co. Bedford, sometimes called Lord Beauchamp, but he was never summoned to Parliament ; he had livery of his lands in 1406-7, and died in 1412, and (2) Sir Robert Shottesbroke(*), who was shewn to be the then husband of Edith, late wife of John Beauchamp, chivalier, in an Inquisition taken at Sherborne, Co. Dorset, on 30th April, 9 Henry V., after the death of her only son, John, son and heir of John Beauchamp, relating to the Manor of Ashmore in that county. It will have been seen that her issue by her first husband. Sir John Beauchamp, of Bletsho, Co. Bedford, was given in the old pedigree set out on page 74, as : — .... etc.

    • vii. — Margaret Stourton, Abbess of Shaftesbury, was confirmed and received the Benediction, 9th December, 1423, and died 30th October, 1441. She was succeeded by Edith Bonham, as Abbess, on the 15th November following, and when, in 1817, John Dyneley, the proprietor of the site of Shaftesbury Abbey, permitted Charles Bowles to make searches, it was discovered that the floor of the Conventual Church there, was composed of Roman tiles on which were the arms of Stourton and Bonham in painted shields.
    • viii.— Anastatia Stourton, a Nun at Shaftesbury, who is mentioned in the will of her brother, John Stourton, of Preston and Brimpton. She was living as a Nun at Shaftesbury when Edith Bonham was elected Abbess thereof after the death of her sister, Margaret Stourton, and was living in 1460, when Margaret St. John was elected, as successor to Edith Bonham.

  • 'Stourton01'
  • TCP Stourton) refers to a pedigree of this family that commences with Botolph and says that it "was long ago disposed of by Round." The pedigree we show comes from BP1934 (Mowbray) and is assumed to be the one that is deemed by TCP to be insecure down to the Sir William who was alive in 1325.
  • Botulph de Stourton (a c1070)
  • m. Anne (dau of Godwin, Earl of Wessex and Kent)
    • 1. Sir Robert de Stourton
    • Collins reports that Robert's father was Sir Ralph (de) Stourton who "when William the Conqueror entered into the West, was among those who broke down the Sea-Walls of the Severn".
      • A. Sir William de Stourton
        • i. Sir Michael de Stourton
        • m. Mary Mauduit (dau of John, Lord Mauduit)
          • a. Sir John Stourton (dvp)
          • BP1934 suggests that Sir John's wife, Gracia, was daughter of Thomas, Lord Hungerford. However, as was kindly brought to our attention by a site visitor (APH, 19.03.06), the dates for any such Grace Hungerford do not match with Sir John's likely dates. Collins identifies John's wife merely as ...
          • m. Grace

              • (B) Sir William Stourton of Stourton (a 1325)
              • TCP reports that this William may well have been son of Ralph and that from this William "thereafter the pedigree is clear", although (as noted) there are some queries regarding some of the wives.
              • m. Joan Vernon (dau of Sir Richard Vernon of Horningham) named by TCP as just Joan
                • (i) Sir John Stourton of Stourton, Sheriff of Dorset and Somerset (a 1381)
                • TCP identifies John's wives as Lettice (probably mother of William) and Alice.
