A moiety of the manor; which moiety was sometime in the seisin of Philippa de Fay, sister and one of the heirs of John de Fay, who held that moiety of Sir Henry sometime king of England, great-grandfather &c. by service of a knight’s fee and a half, and in the said King Henry’s time gave the said moiety, and other tenements which were held of other lords, to William de Wyntershull and Beatrice daughter of the said Philippa and the heirs of their bodies, but the jurors know not for certain whether they were given in fee simple or in fee tail, or whether they were given to hold of the said Philippa or of the said King Henry; which said Beatrice survived the said William de Wyntershull, and in the time of King Edward I gave the said tenements to Walter her (?) son to hold to him and his heirs. In their judgment the said Beatrice was heir of the said Philippa but they know not for certain whether the said Philippa had a son or not, because they never saw any issue of the said Philippa but the said Beatrice, who survived the said Philippa. From the said Walter all the said tenements descended to the said Thomas de Wyntershull as son and heir, after whose death no lord intermeddled with the said moiety of the manor nor claimed anything there on the ground of lordship.

The said William de Nevill and his heirs relinquished lordship, if they had any, in the moiety of the said manor, and utterly refused to receive services therefrom in the full county (court) of Surrey, because they were unwilling to be charged towards the king and his progenitors with the service of a knight’s fee and a half for taking a profit of 6d. yearly from the said moiety of the manor. There are levied in the moiety of the said manor 10l. of yearly rent, to be received from free tenants in Bromlegh, 32s. 4 1/2d. from works called ‘stente’ (?), 9s. 8d. from certain fines of the court of view called ‘worthsilver’ (?), and 26s. 8d. yearly from perquisites of court, heriots and reliefs, by estimation.

Burgham by Gildford. The manor held of Thomas de Seyntmore by service of half a knight’s fee; which manor the said Henry and Alice have occupied from the time of the death of the said Thomas de Wyntershull &c. claiming to hold it for the life of the said Alice.
Polstede. Lands &c. worth 66s. 8d. yearly held in service because at the time of the said Thomas’s death William de Wyntershull, his brother, held the same for his life of the inheritance of the said Thomas. The said William died on 16 May, 16 Edward III, and Richard atte Welle, of whom the said tenements are held by homage, fealty, and 18d. to the king’s scutage when it shall happen at 40s., has occupied the said tenements from the time of the said William’s death by reason of the minority of the said heir.
