About Hugh de Windsor

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. Some ten years later Hugh de Windsor bought the right of common pasture in eighty acres of land in West Horsley. In 1271 Hugh son of Hugh de Windsor granted the manor to Ralph de Berners and Christina his wife in return for an annual rent of £10 during the life of Hugh. This Christina was probably the daughter of Hugh de Windsor; most of the old historians agree in asserting that the manor passed to the Berners family by reason of the succession of heirs female. The manor still continued to be held of the main line of the Windsor family.
