    Great & Little Bourton, Oxfordshire:

    The mesne tenants of both the Chacombes and Seagraves were members of the Danvers family from Auvers in the Cotentin, whose fortunes originated in kinship and service to Alexander, Bishop of Lincoln. Simon Danvers is the first of the family known to have held land in Bourton, though an ancestor Robert witnessed a grant of the advowson of the nearby Aston-le-Walls (Northants.) before 1222. Simon is recorded as a tenant of Bourton land in 1272 and Robert Danvers was holding the Seagrave manor in 1279. Another Simon Danvers of Bourton occurs from 1316 to 1333 and held the Seagrave manor or a part of it as fee in 1325. John Danvers of Bourton occurs in 1339 and held the fee in 1346; his son Richard held land in Little Bourton in 1369 and his grandson John held part of the fee in 1428. This John, son of Richard Danvers, also held a moiety of the former Vipont manor in Great Bourton. Part of his grandfather's fee, however, had been alienated, for in 1428 the priors of Chacombe and Clattercote held lands in Little Bourton which were said to have been held by William (rectius John) Danvers.
