BASKERVILLE FAMILY HISTORY
Supplied by Brian Erwin
Edited by Peter Baskerville Rance
[P.B.R. Madeline Hopton's account at this point appears to leave out a number of generations, which are shown on most visitations available, so I have included the missing inheritors]. Ralph (died 1148) had a son, Sir Roger [or Robert] (died 1176) who married Juliana daughter of Nicholas de Stafford, Their son, Ralph of Eardisley (died 1194) married Ann Owen, they had a son ROGER OF EARDISLEY who married BRIDGET HUNTERSTON, whose son Walter of Eardisley married Elizabeth Pembrugge. They had a son Walter of Eardisley (alive in 1277) who married Susanna Crigdon and who's first son, Sir Roger married a daughter and heiress of Rothes de Gros, knight of Orcop, which manor remained in the family till the year 1528. After Roger came three Sir Walter's in succession, the last of them left two daughters. After them the castle and manor went to Sir Walter and Susanna's second son Sir Richard. He married the daughter of Sir Solers. Another brother George, became lord of Lawton and Picthorne in the County of Salop, whose descendants were lords of Picthorne for three generations, and then ended with an heiress.
Note: According to the Eardisley Castle website, the fortified building at Eardisley became known as a castle about 1183 (must have been crenelated and expanded about this time).
