About Hugh de Windsor

According to ancestry .. HUGH DE WINDSOR

Birth: 1101 - Pembrokeshire, Wales
Death: West Horsley, Surrey, England
Parents: William FitzWalter de Windsor, Mrs William DeWindsor

at the time of the Survey it was in the possession of Walter son of Other, from whom the family of Windsor descended. Hugh de Windsor, grandson of Walter, held a knight's fee in West Horsley in 1166. Hamo de Wudecote in 1232 brought a suit against Hugh de Windsor, who seems to have been a younger son of the Hugh last mentioned, concerning services which Hugh claimed from him.

Beaconsfield Church is first mentioned in 1238 as the right of Hugh de Hodeng and Thomas de Lascelles from the inheritance of their ancestor HUGH de WINDSOR.

John, the parson of Burnham, wrongfully claimed the right of presentation, alleging that Beaconsfield was only a chapel to Burnham Church, to which it paid 40s. a year. Ralph, his predecessor, had agreed to pay the money to William son of Hugh de Windsor.

The Lascelles evidently quitclaimed their right in the advowson to the Hodengs, as it henceforward descended with the Hodengs' manor in Burnham afterwards known as Huntercombe, until 1566, when Ralph Scudamore alienated it to Thomas Handford. The latter appears to have transferred his right to his brother George, who had obtained a lease of Gregory's for Laurence, George's son, received livery of the advowson at his father's death in 1580. In 1629 he conveyed the church to Sir Marmaduke Darrell, who died seised of it in 1632, when it passed to his son Sir Sampson, who in the following year granted the first vacancy to Sir William Ashton
