    Bourton Winslow Manor, Black Bourton, Oxfordshire:

    An estate of 3 hides, later called Bourton Winslow manor from its 15th-century owners, was held in 1086 by Pain, who also owned the neighbouring manor of Clanfield; he held of Roger d'Ivri, who held of William Fitz Osbern, earl of Hereford. FitzOsbern's right was not mentioned later, and the overlordship descended with d'Ivri's lands presumably to Reynold of St Valery (d.1163), passing thereafter with the honor of St Valery and later with that of Ewelme. Lords of the latter honor probably still held views for the manor in the 19th century.

    Before the late 12th century the manor was subinfeudated as 1 knight's fee to the resident Burton or Bourton family. Pain's mesne tenancy descended with his Clanfield manor to the Harengs, Chastillons, and Gernons, but seems to have lapsed in the 15th century. From Hugh of Bourton (fl. c. 1180) the manor passed to his son Robert (fl. 1200), to Ralph of Bourton (fl. 1230), to another Robert (fl. 1250), and to Robert's son Geoffrey (fl. 125879) and grandson Simon of Bourton (fl. 1306). Simon was succeeded before 1316 by William Poure of Charlton-on-Otmoor (d. 1316 X1317), and all or part of the manor descended with Charlton and Wendlebury to Richard (d. by 1338), William (fl. 1338), and Sir Thomas Poure (d. by 1398), the last a royal justice said to be 'of Bourton'. Some lands and rents were held in the early 14th century by John Evermond of Alvescot, who in 1328 impleaded Richard Poure to keep to an earlier agreement, and until 1385 another part seems to have been claimed by the Buckland and Worth or Wroth families, though on what basis is unclear. Thomas Poure's son Thomas, a minor and king's ward, died in 1407, and the manor passed to his sister Agnes, who married William Winslow (d. 1414) and Robert Andrew (d. 1437) and who was living in 1441. Her son Thomas Winslow settled part in 1458 on his daughter Elizabeth and her husband John Terumbere or Towker, reserving rents to himself and his wife, and on his death c. 1463 the manor passed to Elizabeth and her second husband Humphrey Seymour (fl.1479 X 1501), and to their son Simon Seymour (d.1523), the lord in 1520.
