kF this place there is no particular mention in
cheConq"'. Survey, it being then involved
with CWl^MfcOton, and poffeft by Harold^ the
fon of Raphe Earl of ^ercfOJft ; whofe poftericie
took the firname of Sudley , yet fometimes made
their refidence hcre.Whirft the male line of which
Family lafted, it continued theirs ; but afterwards
came to Boteler, Norbury, and Bray^ fucceffively,
as theDcfccnt on the next page inferted will fhew.
This RaphEit\oii$ttt((tlh, was fon f to iral-
terde CH'ti*nt, by Coda fifter to K. f^w.thc Con-
feflbr ; but of him there is little obfeiveable, other
f AMalm. ^^^^ ^■^^ pufillanimitie, whereby he lufFered ' the
tjln^iQ, ' Cicie and Countie of ^crcfOJD to become a prey
t * ' to the Welch, in the year 1055. (13 E^w.Conf.)
It feems that he was difpofleft cf his Earldome, in
•R.Hoved. the firftyear ofK. iVill. the Conq"', reign; for
/.z j8,«.». will.fti, Osberne then had it conferred " upon him;
*°* but found favour to enjoy fomc of his inheritance,

wDomcfd. y,hich defcended to Harold, his fon ": whereof


this Lordrtiip was part. To this Harold fucceeded
John, firnamed de Sutlei ("from his refidence at
^tlQlcp in com . Gloiic . ) Of whom I have
fecn no more mention, than that he was a witnefs
" to the Q\\zrx.zx oiLM^rgaret Countcfs of ©Uar-
tofcb (widow to Earl Hcf.ry') made in K. Stephen's
time to the Canons of JSenilVDOJtft. And to John,
luccecded Raphe, who gave ■ divers lands lying
in f^CrOlBlbe ( jttxta SDCtfet ) to the Knights
Templar J, as alio founded ^ the Priorie of CtDbU-
X\t, adjoyning to this Lordfhip, and left iffue,Of-
vel, " and Raphe^ ; which Raphe, by his brother's
death, became heir to the efiate, and rcfiding here
at (SriflFe, had a pecniiar Chapell in his Man-
nour-hoiiie , wherein he had a fpeciall Licenfe
from ' the Canons of CrOburfCto have divine fei-
vice celebrated,at fuch time onely.as himfelf or his
heirs, their wives, or mothers, fliould be pcrfonal-
ly there prefenr, excepting Chriflmafs'diy,Eafier'
day, mhitfunday. All Saints-day, Candlemafs-day,
and the Feaft-day of the Church its Dedication,
on which there fliould be no folemnitie kept
therein, unlefs by fpeciall Licenfe obtained • and
that in cafe of their disabilitie to come unto the
Mother-Church , by reafon of ficknefs or other
good caufe : And provided that all Oblations made
in the laid Chapell, fhould be delivered to the Vi-
car of CljfltJCrBCfcOfC, for the time being, fo that
no indempnitie thereby , nor in any thing elfe
might accrue to the laid Mother-Church of CWl-
t)ertierC0f e by means of the laid Chapell.

Which Raphe had ilfue Raphe, concerning
whom I have no more to fay, than of his marri-
age and death, and therein, for brevities fake, do
refer my felf to the Pedegree. To thislaft Raphe,
fucceeded * Sir Barth deSudle Kt. who in 54 H.
3. being conrtituted ^ Shiriff of ^erefojD-fliire and
Governourof l^erctojO-Caftle. and in 7 £. I. a
Juftice "of AfTize in this Countie, gave ^theM -inks

John de Stith ley Yit. aged about xxiiii. years at

Langton Bifliop of COtj« and ilfC^. in I 5 £. 2.
grant a fpeciall Indulgence '',releafing XL. days
of their enjoyned Penance, to all fuch as fliould,
with a devout mind, fay a Pater nofler, and an

Which Sir Jff/'w in i 3 f . 1. claimed 'a Court

H. 3. Charter for the iFree=iDarretl, and pleading
Prefcription for the reft : All which were allow-

afmuch as he ought to partake with the Hundred
