Collections for a history of Staffordshire, Volume 2 By Staffordshire Record Society


By virtue of this entail the manor of Raunton will have devolved on Sir Roger Lewknor the son of Joane D'Oyley. This Roger Lewknor, who resided at Bradhurst, Co. Sussex, married Margaret, daughter of Sir John Carew, of Molesford, Co. Bucks, Knight, and died 1401. Their eldest son, Thomas Lewknor, was then 19 years of age. They had also a younger son, John, from whom the Lewknors of Acrise, Co. Kent, were descended, and I suppose Eleanor Harcourt to have been the daughter of the same Sir Roger. Sir Thomas Lewknor, the eldest son, was in 1403, found heir, through his grandmother, Joane D'Oyley, to the extensive estates of the Tregoze family, at Goring, Co. Sussex, and elsewhere in that county, and removed his seat to Goring. He was thrice married, first to Elizabeth, daughter of Nicholas Carew, of Beddington, Co. Surrey, by whom he had no issue; secondly to Phelippa, relict of Sir Richard Berners, and daughter and eventual heiress of Walter Dalyngrigge, son of Sir Roger Dalyngrigge, of Bodeham Castle, Co. Sussex, Knight. His last wife, Catherine, survived him, and her inquisition p.m. was held in 21 Edw. IV. Sir Thomas Lewknor left six sons, between whom his large estates were divided. The eldest son, Sir Roger Lewknor, however, succeeded to Stoke D'Oyley and the principal estates, and died in 1475, leaving six sons and three daughters, of whom Thomas, the eldest son, succeeded to Stoke D'Oyley. .......
