  • Pg.226
  • The Right Honourable William, Lord Stourton, 2nd Baron of Stourton, Co. Wilts, in the peerage of England, son and heir of Sir John Stourton, knight, of Stourton aforesaid, who had been created Baron of Stourton by Letters Patent on the 13th May, 1448, by Margaret, (or Margery) his only wife, daughter of Sir John Wadham, knight, of Merryfield, Co. Somerset, one of the Puisne Judges of the Court of Common Pleas.
  • Lord Stourton succeeded his father in the Stourton peerage on St. Catherine's day, 25th November, 1462(*). He inherited the vast estates which his father succeeded to, some of which descended paternally, as coming from Sir William Stourton, and some through his wife, Elizabeth Moigne ; and those which John, Lord Stourton, inherited under the charter of John Hame, and by purchase, as well as by favour of Henry VI. He was born about 1432, and was aged 30 years on the 25th November, 1462, and in the same year he had livery of his fathers estates, but his homage was respited, .... etc.
  • Pg.227
  • This estate was settled as the jointure of Margaret, Lady Stourton, who after the death of her first husband, William, 2nd Lord Stourton, presented with her second husband. Sir John Cheyne or Cheyney, knight. Lord Cheyney, K.G., who died sine prole on the 30th May, 1499. .... etc.
  • Pg.228
  • He married Margaret, eldest daughter and coheir of Sir John Chidiock, knight, of Chidiock and Caundle, Co. Dorset, .... etc.
  • Pg.234
  • With him at Salisbury were included Sir Maurice Berkeley, knight of his body, who was undoubtedly the father-in-law of his son, John, 3rd Lord Stourton.
  • Sir Maurice Berkeley, whose daughter, Katherine, became wife of John, 3rd Lord Stourton, was father of Sir William Berkeley, of Beverston, who died in 1486 sine prole, and Katherine, Lady Stourton, was his sister and heir.
  • This Sir William Berkeley married Katherine, daughter of William, 2nd Lord Stourton, and was heir of his father (among other estates,) to the Manor of Great Kingston, Co. Dorset, which was holden of George Plantagenet, Duke of Clarence. After his death Katherine (Stourton,) his widow, became wife of William, or we think Henry, Lord Grey, of Codnor, and she, as Katherine, Lady Grey, was Lady of the above Manor, and as such she, about the 18th November, 1503, granted to her brother, William, 5th Lord Stourton, the right of patronage pro hac vice, who then presented William Turner to the rectory there.
  • Pg.235
  • The Other royal commissioner, with William, Lord Stourton and Sir Maurice Berkeley, was John Cheney, then one of the Esquires of the body of King Edward. We are inclined to think he became eventually the second husband ot Margaret, widow of our William, Lord Stourton, and consequently identical with the John, Lord Cheyney, K.G., who died sine prole on the 30th May, 1499.
  • Pg.239
  • Lord Stourton, had, by Margaret (Chidiock,) his wife, the following issue : —

    • iii. — The Right Honourable Edward, Lord Stourton, who succeeded his brother, William, 5th Lord Stourton, as 6th Baron of Stourton, Co. Wilts, in the peerage of England, and of whom afterwards.

    • x. — Katherine Stourton, whom both Collins and Edmondson placed as the third daughter, and Harleian Manuscript 1074 as the eldest living one. She married (1) Sir William Berkeley, of Beverston, Co. Gloucester, son and heir of Sir Maurice Berkeley, of Beverston, one of the knights of the body of Edward IV., by Anne, his wife, daughter of Reginald West, Lord de la Warre. .... etc. Sir William Berkeley, of Beverston, died in 1486, having made his will 4th June, 1475, and a codicil 27th September, 1485, and Katherine (Stourton) his wife, was one of his executors, and proved them on 1st July, 1486(+). In these records he mentioned particularly William, 5th Lord Stourton, who had at that time succeeded to the peerage. He also named his own sister, Katherine Berkeley, as Dame Katherine Stourton, who was then the widow of John, 3rd Lord Stourton. She married (2) William, or, as we think, Henry, Lord Grey of Codnor, and as Katherine, Lady Grey, she was, as widow and executrix of her first husband. Sir William Berkeley, Lady of the Manor of Great Kington, which he had held as heir to his father in 1474, and about the 18th November, 1503, she granted to her brother, William, 5th Lord Stourton, the right of patronage, pro hac vice, who then presented to that rectory. The premises at Great Kington and other lands and Manors passed afterwards through Warburga Brereton and her descendants.

She married James Chudleigh, of Ashton, Co. Devon. On her marriage in 1476, her father, William, Lord Stourton, gave her under her marriage settlement a portion of 100 marks, which Prince, in his Worthies of Devon, thus curiously commented on, when he said it was "a portion held so very small in this (his) age, that a very ordinary farmer, or shopkeeper, would be loath to give it with a daughter, or take it with a wife." .... etc. James Chudleigh, by Margaret (Stourton) his wife, left issue, and they were ancestors of the now extinct house of the Baronets Chudleigh, of Ashton, Co. Devon, .... etc.

She married John Philipot or Philpot, Esquire, who was Sheriff of Hants in 16 Henry VII. He was son and heir of Sir John Philpot, knight, citizen of London, and was aged 31 years when his father died in 2 Richard III. .... etc.
