Part of this Village was of R. Earl Moritons Fee, in the time of the Conquerour, which before was Ælayns or Aluins, who had one bovat for the Geld. The Land was two bovats. There was pasture wood, eight qu. long, half — broad. (fn. 1) This was 2s. value in the Confessours time, in the Conquerours but 12d. But the better part of this Township was William Peverells Fee, wherein before he had it was a Mannor or two, which Grunchel had, one whereof was rated to the Geld at 5 and an half bovats. The Land being half a car. In the Conquerours time this was waste, and but 2s. In the Confessours it had been 5s. Another was taxed at five bovats to the Geld. And the Land of it was also half a car. and had a Berew in Chinemerley, where were two bov. waste. William Peverell gave what he had here to his Priory of Lenton, as in that place may be seen; (fn. 2) and Robert, son of John de Newthorp, gave to it something in Folewoode.

(fn. 3) Earl Moritons Fee it seems came very anciently to the honour of Leicester, and was held of the Lords of Goteham. Sir John de St. Andrew, 28 E. 3, (fn. 4) gave 8s. Rent, issuing out of a mess. and virgat of land in Neuthorp, to find a light in the conventual Church of Lenton, as he should order it. John of Gaunt confirmed to Robert de Teversalt Vicar of Greseley (who had it for, and conveyed it to, the Priory of Beauvele) one mess. seven tofts, two bovats, and sixty acres of land, and 12s. 7d. yearly rent, with the appurtenances, which he held of Julian the relict of Sir John de St. Andrew, Chr. and John Samon in Newthorpe by the Service of 2s. per annum, and they of the honour of Leicester. (fn. 5) Robert de St. Andrew of Goteham, granted licence to the said Vicar of Greseley, to give it to the Priory of Beauvale, and so did John Samon of Nottingham for a third part, according to the division mentioned in Goteham. This Land was most of it held by William Ferrour of Neuthorp, who passed it to the Vicar also, and his son John Ferrour confirmed it, being all the Land, Rents and Services, which the said William had in Neuthorp, except the mess. he dwelt in, which was not passed at that time.

William de Hickeling Rector of Thornore, referred a controversy between him and the Prior of Beauvale, concerning a certain Rent of 6s. 6d. issuing out of a mess and two bovats of land, and one cottage of his inheritance in Neuthorp, which was held by Wm. Ward of Kymerley, husband of his sister Maud, to Sir Nicholas Strelley, William Babington, Thomas Hunte, and William Wollaton, to arbitrate, who determind the rent to be due to the Priory, seeing the Land was held of Robert de Kemerley, as of his Mannor of Kemerley, whose right the Priory then had.

(fn. 6) Beatrix, sometime wife of Robert de Watton, gave to the Priory of Lenton two bovats in Nenthorp, reserving 2s. a year rent by the consent of William de Heriz, her son-in-law, and her daughter his wife.

Robert, son of Robert de Kynmerley, and Roger Prior of Lenton, agreed that there should be a division made between the woods of the said Priory, and the wood of the said Robert in Neuthorp. Robert le Vavasur of Chyppeley, was to fence the Priors wood, which lay next a certain Holme in Newthorp, which Roger the Prior of Lenton gave him and his heirs, from any loss or damage it should (sustain or) have from his millers, or people coming to his mill, or else suffer the Prior to shut it up close.

The Prior of Lenton enfeossed Hugh, son of Peter de Halum, in one bovat in Newthorp for the sum of four marks and an half, which William and Raph his sons returned to the Monastery again.

John, son of Thomas Leech, [medicus] of Neuthorp, 22 E. 1, released all actions and demands to William Prior of Lenton, who was his guardian when he was under age.

William le Ferrours, 25. E. 3, released to the Prior of Lenton all his right and claim in the lands and tenements of Raph de Neuthorp, and all his own goods which were in his own house where the said Raph dwelt.

(fn. 7) Raph de Annesley the elder, and Agnes his wife, 17 E. 2, recovered their seisin of one mess. twenty-one acres of land, and two parts of a mill in Neuthorp against Peter de Cressey, and others, and twenty marks damage, for which they desired execution, and had it granted.

(fn. 8) The Mannor of Newthorp, and diverse Lands there, late belonging to the Monastery of Lenton, 13 July, 37 H. 8, were granted to John Mylle, and George Mille.

(fn. 9) As those belonging to Beauvall were, 8 July, 33 H. 8, to William Hussy.— The Land of Sir William Hussy, Knight, who died 10 Jan. 2 and 3 Ph. and Mar. descended to Richard Deisney, and Neile his wife, and Francis Columbell, and Anne his wife, daughters rnd heirs of the said Sir William, who held in Newthorpe and Underwood, seven mess. twenty cottages, one water-mill, two hundred acres of land, thirty of meadow, one hundred and fifty of pasture, thirteen of wood, and 14s. 6d. rent, besides lands and tenements in the County of Lincolne, in Leake, Leverton, Skerbeck, and Halowell, and the Rectory of Bouby and Saxby, and the Mannor of Stratton in Rutland. That which was granted to Milles, 37 H, 8, was the same year sold to William Bolles.
