    LAWLEY,

    There were originally two manors called LAWLEY, which had passed by 1300 into the same demesne lordship and came to be regarded as one manor. The larger manor was held in 1086 of Earl Rogerby Turold of Vesly, and of Turold by Hunnit, who is likely to have held it in 1066. As with other manors, Turold's mesne lordship appears to have passed to the Chetwynds, who evidently held their fee, following the extinction of the earldom of Shrewsbury, of the FitzAlans and whose undertenants were the descendants of the Anglo Saxon Toret. John of Chetwynd was lord of part of Lawley in 1255. By 1285, however, William of Hodnet (fl. 1300) held Lawley as tenant in chief and was the immediate lord of the tenant in demesne. That part of Lawley was accounted a member of Hodnet manor, with which the overlordship passed to William's son-in-law William of Ludlow (d. 1316) and to John of Ludlow (d.1398). The Domesday tenant in demesne, Hunnit, appears to have been succeeded by Toret. Peter FitzToret (fl. 1160-94) was lord in 1180, and his son Bartholomew Toret (fl. 1196-1229) succeeded him. Bartholomew was dead by 1235, and the estate passed, presumably through his daughter Joan or grandson Richard Corbet (III), to the Corbets of Moreton Corbet. By 1255 Robert Corbet (d. 1300) was lord, and after 1283 he acquired the smaller manor too.

    NOTE: Richard is implied to be dead by 1235, which is why the grandson is mentioned.
