Wilts., by Catherine, his wife, daughter of Henry, Lord Beaumont, confirmed by Hoare's copy of the College of Arms pedigree and by Edmondson. Collins placed him as eldest son of Sir John Stourton, by his second wife, Jane, daughter of Ralph, Lord Basset. Harleian MS. 1074 shewed him as eldest son of John Stourton without giving his mother's name. John Stourton, of Preston, senior, described himself in his will as brother of William Stourton, son and heir of John Stourton, sometime Lord of Stourton. In the inscription to Edith Stourton's memory she is called "Editha Soror' Will'i Storton." He appears to have been one of her trustees of the Manor of Ashmore, Co. Dorset. Sir William Dugdale started his pedigree of the Stourton family with this Sir William Stourton, stating that the family was of great antiquity in Wiltshire, taking its denomination from the town of Stourton, and it from the river Stoure, on the bank whereof it was situated.

  • It was found by the Inquisition taken after the death of Sir William Stourton, in 1 Henry V., at Dunmow, Co. Essex, that Sir John Moigne, knight, had been seised of the Manor of Estanes ad Montem, Co. Essex, with the advowson of the church there, in his demesne as of fee, as being settled to him and his heirs for ever, and being so seised, he had granted that Lordship, Manor and Advowson to Elizabeth, his daughter, then wife of Sir William Stourton, to hold of the said Elizabeth and the heirs of her body lawfully issuing by her husband, William Stourton, and that on the 20th May, 21 Richard II., a license had been obtained from the King confirming the said grant, and the Inquisition proved that John Stourton was son and next heir of the said Elizabeth by Sir William Stourton. .... etc.
