About Sir Payn de Turberville

One of twelve Knights who accompanied Sir Robert Fitz Hammon to the aid of Jestyn ap Gurgant, king of Glamaorganshire, against Rhese, prince of South Wales, about the year 1090. Once Rhese was dead, however, Fitz Hammon turned his forces against Jestyn and conquered his whole dominion. He divided the land amongst his followers, giving Sir Payn de Turberville the castle and lordship of Coyty. Sir Payn confirmed his right by marrying the heiress of the last possessor of land and castle, a descendent of Jestyn ap Gurgant. He had three sons with her, and was succeeded by the eldest, Sir Simon de Turberville. Sir Simon died without issue, leaving his brother, Sir Gilbert, as heir to both the lordship of Coyty, and of Crûg Howell (now Crickhowell). Sir Gilbert had a son by his wife, Agnes, whom he named Payne. Sir Payne (the younger) had two sons- the eldest, his heir, named Gylbert/Gilbert, and the younger named Ermerod. Sir Gylbert became lord of Coyty Castle, while his brother, Sir Ermerod, became lord of Crûg Howell.
