About Robert Boteler, of Englebi


“St Edith of Polesworth and her cult“ by NIGEL TRINGHAM Keele University and VCH Staffordshire. link

Polesworth abbey was certainly the means by which Church Eaton church in the west of Staffordshire was dedicated to St Edith, following the grant of the church by one Edelina, a relation of the manorial overlord, Robert de Stafford, who in his confirmation noted that she had wished to become a nun (vitam mutare et habitum religionis assumere querit vel intendit). Either the Edelina whose son Hamo (d. by 1166) inherited the manor or a daughter of the same name, she must have been the Edelina whose brother Robert the butler gave the Polesworth nuns some land on condition that they celebrated anniversaries for the souls of ‘her lord’ Walter de Somerville (a close companion of Robert Marmion) and (his son) Roger. Edelina was to be buried at Polesworth, the nuns having promised that when she died they would carry her body to their house (ad domum suam) and honourably bury her with due exequies in their cloister (in claustro).
