About Robert d'Anvers of Bourton, Ipswell & Chiselhampton

Robert d'Anvers of Bourton was the son of William d'Anvers and wife Matilda Thalmasche. He was born c.1225 in Oxfordshire, England, most likely at Tetsworth or Bourton. He married before 1260 and had at least two children, Petronilla and Simon.

Robert was the heir of Peter Thalmasche, his uncle, who died without heirs. He was a Commissioner for Banbury Hundred in the Rotuli Hundredorum. His brother Richard held a similar position for the Thame Hundred. Robert was appointed Commissioner of the Peace under the Statute of Winchester in 1285.

One of Robert's colleagues on the Banbury Hundred was Sir William de la Lee. One of Sir William's granddaughters married one of Robert's grandsons.

His marriage must have happened not later than 1260, based on the records for his children. His daughter Petronilla held property in Swalescliffe for her father at the completion of the Hundred Rolls. From the Hundred Rolls we also learn that Robert was one of the largest land owners in the Banbury Hundred. In addition to his father's estate at Bournton, and the estate at Swalecliffe, he also held manors at Eppewell (later Ipswell) and Tetsworth, and land at Cheselhampton and Fanflore. He made his principal home at Bourton, the ancient seat of the family, while his brother lived at Tetsworth.
