  • Their benefactor, Sir John Cheyne, who desired in 1489 to be buried in the Lady Chapel at the conventual church near Dame Elizabeth, his first wife, was sufficiently important for his name to be written (as was that of his father) into the calendar at the beginning of the Liber Memorandorum. (fn. 245) The tomb for Sir John and his wife was to be made 'after the form of the sepulchre of my father Laurence Cheyne'. (fn. 246) These were perhaps the two marble tombs expressly mentioned at the Dissolution. (fn. 247)

  • Pytchley then followed the descent of Weldon (q.v.) (fn. 28) until 1408, when, on the death of Richard Basset, the property was divided between his cousins, Weldon passing to John Knyvet and Pytchley to Sir Thomas Aylesbury, who died in 1418 seised of a manor of Pytchley, composed of the manor of Pytchley called Engaynes (q.v.) and of this manor, then called BASSETS and later on known as STAFFORDS. (fn. 29) Bassets, held by him of the abbey of Peterborough, had been granted by him in 1416–17 to Sir Thomas Chaworth, the husband of his daughter Isabel, (fn. 30) but was assigned for life to his widow Katharine. (fn. 31) Katharine, who had inherited the Engayne manor as the daughter of Lawrence de Pabenham, died on 17 July 1436, leaving as her heir her son Laurence Cheyne, aged 40. (fn. 32) . . . .
  • . . . . The manor of ENGAYNES, DENGAYNES, or GEYNES, though . . . . . This Sir John Dengayne of Dillington (Hunts.) died in February 1358, seized of 14 virgates in Pytchley held of the king as parcel of the serjeanty of Laxton, with 10 virgates there held by free tenants of the Abbot of Peterborough for one-fourth of a knight's fee, and rendering for each virgate 2s. 4d. for ward of Rockingham Castle; Sir John, it was said, had received nothing therefrom except two attendances yearly from each tenant at his court at Pytchley, the profits of which were worth nothing. (fn. 53) When his son Sir Thomas died s.p. in 1367 the lands passed to his three sisters and co-heirs: Joyce, the wife of John de Goldington; Elizabeth wife of Sir Lawrence de Pabenham; and Mary wife of William de Bernak. (fn. 54) In 1368 John de Goldington and his wife Joyce transferred their third to William Bernak and his wife Mary. (fn. 55) In 1377 a conveyance of Laxton, Pytchley, and other manors was made to John de Goldington and his wife Joyce by the other two sisters and their husbands, (fn. 56) and a second conveyance finally left this manor of Pytchley, then held in dower by Katharine, widow of Sir Thomas Engayne, the property of Elizabeth and Lawrence de Pabenham. (fn. 57) Elizabeth predeceased her husband, and at his death in 1399 their heir was their daughter Katharine, aged 27. (fn. 58) Katharine married first Sir William Cheyne of Fen Ditton (Cambs.), (fn. 59) and secondly Sir Thomas Aylesbury, in whose hands the two Pytchley manors are consequently found at his death in September 1418. (fn. 60) The manor of Engaynes then consisted of three parcels, one being held by the hunting serjeanty, another of the Abbot of Peterborough, and the remainder of John Knyvet as of his manor of Weldon. (fn. 61) On the death of Katharine Aylesbury, in 1436, her son Lawrence Cheyne inherited the manor, (fn. 62) and in 1449 settled it on himself and his wife Elizabeth, with remainder to their son John. (fn. 63) Sir Thomas Cheyney, son of the last-named Sir John, in 1503 granted the manor of Pytchley to Ralph Lane and Katharine his wife, kinswoman of the said Sir Thomas Cheyney, for life, with remainder for life to John Dockwra, son of the said Katherine. (fn. 64) In 1511, when a marriage was proposed between Elizabeth, the daughter and heir of this Sir Thomas Cheyney (of Irtlingborough), and Thomas Vaux, son and heir apparent of Sir Nicholas Vaux, the reversion of the manor was settled in tail on Elizabeth. (fn. 65) Sir Thomas Cheyney died seised of the manor on 13 January 1514, his daughter being then 9 years old. Her subsequent marriage with Sir Thomas Vaux conveyed Pytchley to the Vaux of Harrowden (q.v.), who did not long hold it however. Sir Thomas Vaux, Lord Harrowden, with William Vaux his son and heir, sold the manor of Pytchley called Geynes in 1555 to Gregory Isham, citizen and merchant of London. (fn. 66)

  • In 1425 the Laxton property passed to Thomas de Bekering's daughter Alice, who had married Sir Thomas Rempston, of Bingham, Notts. Sir Thomas was a soldier, who went to France in 1415, under Henry V, and was at the siege of Harfleur and the Battle of Agincourt. He was with Sir John Fastolf at the Battle of the Herrings in 1429, and was taken prisoner by the French under Joan of Arc, but a large ransom was arranged for him by the English Parliament. After the defeat of the English and the end of the Hundred Years War, Sir Thomas returned to England, where he supported the Yorkist cause at the beginning of the Wars of the Roses, and died in 1458.
  • Once more the property passed in the female line, Sir Thomas Rempston leaving three daughters, Elizabeth, wife of John Cheyne, Isabel, wife of Sir Brian Stapledon, and Margaret, wife of Richard Bingham. Elizabeth Cheyne had the Laxton part of Sir Thomas's property, and in 1515 it passed to her granddaughter, another Elizabeth Cheyne, who married the son of Lord Vaux of Harrowden. Some time in the sixteenth century Lord Vaux sold the Laxton property to Sir Thomas Broughton, who had married Mary Roos, sister of Peter Roos, the lord of the chief manor. When his son, Gilbert Roos, sold the manor to the Marquis of Buckingham, he reserved about 100 acres for his cousin Mr. Peter Broughton. These lands remained with the Broughton family until the eighteenth century, when they were bought by the Earl of Scarborough, of Rufford. In 1867 Earl Manvers acquired the property, in exchange for land in the parish of Eakring.
