About Hubert de Port, I, of Mapledurwell

The brother or other collateral relative of Hugh de Port, Domesday lord of Basing.

Father of Adam de Port (d c 1135)

[HUBERT de Port (-after 1086). Domesday Book records land held by “Hubert de Port” in Mapledurwell in Basingstoke Hundred in Hampshire[762]. This holding is recorded following the main holding of Hugues de Port in Hampshire, which suggests a close family connection: maybe they were brothers.]


Hubert & Hugh de Port were not the same person.

(Hubert and Hugh were sometimes confused before 1900 when Round, in the words of Complete Peerage, "placed the genealogy of both families on a sound basis and cleared up the confusion between the Ports of Basing and those of Mapledurwell or Herefordshire which had previously existed." See Round.)

MAPLEDERWELL, which Anschill had held of Edward the Confessor, was owned by Hubert de Port in 1086, (fn. 7) being his sole estate in Hampshire. It covered a far larger area then than it does at present, comprising as it did within its boundaries the modern parishes of Maplederwell, Newnham and Up Nately, and the extraparochial district of Andwell. The names of the descendants of Hubert de Port, lords of the honour of Kington, who must not be confused with the successors of Hugh de Port, lords of the honour of Basing, (fn. 8) can be ascertained from charters to Andwell Priory now in the possession of Winchester College. (fn. 9)
At the beginning of the 12th century Adam de Port was the lord of Maplederwell and founded the priory of Andwell in the latter half of the reign of Henry I, granting to it with various privileges £7 14s. worth of his land of Nately, (fn. 10) which up to this time had formed part of his manor of Maplederwell. He was succeeded by his son Roger de Port, who granted to the monks the mill and the miller of Andwell, (fn. 11) and was in his turn followed by his son Adam de Port, (fn. 12) who in 1172 was outlawed for treason and forfeited all his possessions. (fn. 13).

Et quia ipse ad summonitionem regis stare judicio nollet exlegatus est ab Anglia" (Gesta Regis Henrici, i, 35; Hoveden, Cbron. ii, 41), is confirmed by the contemporary Pipe Roll, from which we learn that in that year three cartloads of prisoners reached London from the west in connexion with this affair' (Gen. [New Ser.], xvi, 10).
