About Sir Nicholas de Beinton, Sr.

Following information retrieved January 11, 2008 from http://www.bayntun-history.com/NicholasBayntun1382.htm:

"Nicholas Bayntun was born in 1382 at Faulston House, in the County of Wiltshire. Deeds relating to him show his name listed as Nicholas Benton, however we see the spelling of the surname changing to Bayntun by the beginning of the 17th century.

"Records show he was Lord of the Manor of Fallerston (now known as Faulston) and also of part of the Manor of Compton Chamberlayne in the next valley to the North, the Nadder. Deeds dated 12 Henry IV (1411) and 9 Henry V (1422) show Nicholas de Benton in possession of lands at Compton Chamberlayne.

"His marriage, by contract, to Joan Roche (his second cousin) had an important effect upon the subsequent fortunes of the Bayntun family. After the death of her father, Sir John Roche in 1400, his property was divided among his co-heiresses (his daughters). His eldest daughter, Elizabeth received the Manor of Bromham Roches, which would eventually be inherited by the Bayntun family in 1508.

"The Manor of Whaddon was owned by Sir John Roche and was also passed onto Elizabeth and her sister at the time of their father's death, but eventually it fell entirely to Elizabeth. This Manor, like the Manor of Bromham, was later passed onto the Bayntun family after the death of Lord St. Amand in 1508.

"The Manor of Horton and the Manor of Chittoe were others inherited by Nicholas Bayntun following the death of Wilhelma de la Mare in 1411, the wife of Sir John Roche. At this time the escheator for Wiltshire was ordered to assign to Elizabeth, wife of Walter Beauchamp and daughter and co-heir of Sir John Roche, rent of 13s - 4d issuing from lands in Chittoe whereof Geoffrey Driffelde was tenant for life. Nicholas Bayntun and his wife Joan, the other Roche heiress, gave assent to this.

"A deed dated 14 Henry IV (1413) witnessed by Oliver Cervington, Henry Gilbert, Thomas Meriel and Thomas Martin shows Nicholas Benton as Lord of the Manor of Fallerston.

"Nicholas Bayntun died in 1422 and his wife Joan Roche survived him and was re-married in 1429 to William Whaplode M.P., of Chalfont St. Peter, Co. Buckinghamshire. At the time of this marriage she conveyed the Manor of Faulston to her son, John.

"There is no record of the burial place of Nicholas Bayntun, but it is thought he and his family before him, may have been buried in a square field, known as Chapel Close, which might have been either the site of a Chapel or a field attached to the Chapel which was next to Faulston House. There are no visible signs of any graves today, unless buried beneath the ground.

"When Nicholas Bayntun died he was succeeded by his eldest son and heir John Bayntun"


Nicholas de Baynton, Knight, was of baronial descent. He was of Falston in Wiltshire, England.

He was recorded as living in 1404/5.

"The marriage of Nicholas to Joan de la Roche would have a huge bearing upon the wealth of the Bayntun family in the next 100 years."

Nicholas died in 1421 at the age of 39 years.

Following information retrieved January 11, 2008 from http://www.bayntun-history.com/NicholasBayntun1334.htm:

"Nicholas Bayntun was born in 1334 at Faulston House, in the county of Wiltshire and is said to have been 24 years old when his father, Thomas, died in 1358. Land deeds indicate he was known as Nicholas de Benton, however we see the spelling of the surname changing to Baynton in medieval times and to Bayntun from the beginning of the 17th century.

"At this time he inherited his father's two-thirds share in the Manor of Fallerston (now known as Faulston), but by 1361 he also inherited Joan de Grimstead's one-third share when she died and so the whole manor house and farm of Faulston were reunited. Joan was the wife of his uncle Thomas de Grimstead who died without an heir in 1328 when the Manor of Faulston was initially divided between his widow and his father Thomas Bayntun.

"The Manor is known to have consisted of Faulston House, a messuage (ie: a dwelling place with outbuildings and adjacent land), courtyards, a pond, two gardens, pasture, fruit trees, a mill and 250 acres of arable, together with 6 acres of meadow and the Oxedowne, shared with the tenants and some land in Croucheston and Throope. There was also grazing for 300 sheep, some of it enclosed.

"Nicholas was married to Joan de Berwick and when her father, Gilbert de Berwick, died in 1361 most of his estate, including the Manor of Overwroughton, was passed onto her eldest sister, Agnes and her husband Sir John Roche. However these lands would eventually come into the hands of the Bayntun family 40 years later, when Sir John's son – also known as Sir John Roche – died in 1400 without male heir and his daughter, Joan Roche, who at the time, was married to Nicholas Bayntun (the grandson of this Nicholas Bayntun), would inherit the above estates.

"The Crown's interest in the Manor of Berwick Bassett was held by Queen Isabel c. 1330. Its estate in Berwick Bassett was in the keeping of Gilbert of Berwick and sometime before 1338 it was granted to him in fee. Like Overwroughton, it too was passed onto Agnes and her husband, and was eventually inherited by the Bayntuns in 1508. It remained Bayntun property until 1557, when Sir Andrew Bayntun sold the estate to John Goddard.

"The Manor of Chelworth was another inherited by Gilbert's daughter, Agnes, and her husband, Sir John Roche and in 1508 it became the property of John Bayntun, the sole heir of the Roche/de la Mare/Beauchamp Saint Amand estates which he inherited through two maternal grandparents. Chelworth remained in the Bayntun family until 1547 when it was sold by Sir Andrew Bayntun to Nicholas Snell.

"A deed, dated 42 Edward III (1369) – Nicholas de Benton grants land in Fallerston. It is not clear whom this land was granted to.

"By 1370 there was unrest in the county among tenants, the other Bishopstone manors altered their demands for services, or gave their tenants leases and freedom to farm for themselves, but perhaps the Bayntuns were less understanding.

"There is no record of the burial place of Nicholas Bayntun, but it is thought he and his descendants, may have been buried in a square field, known as Chapel Close, which might have been either the site of a Chapel or a field attached to the Chapel which was next to Faulston House. There are no visible signs of any graves today, unless buried beneath the ground.

"It is not known when Joan de Berwick died, but when Nicholas Bayntun died in 1372 he was succeeded by his eldest son and heir Nicholas Bayntun"


Nicholas de Baynton, Lord of Falston, was said to have been 24 years old when his father died in 1358. He inherited his father's two-thirds share in the Manor of Faulston. He inherited Joan de Grimstead's one-third share when she died--and so the whole manor house and farm of Faulston were reunited in 1361.

Nicholas was recorded as living in 1371/72.

"Nicholas Bayntun was unpopular with his tenants for failing to give them leases and the freedom to farm for themselves – this caused a lot of unrest in Faulston."
