    Manor of Frobury, Kingsclere, Hampshire:

    The manor of FROBURY (Frolleberi, Frolebyr',Frollesbyr', xiii cent.; Frollebury, xiv cent.; Throlbery, xv cent.; Frowbery, Froylbery, xvi cent.) is not mentioned in Domesday Book by name, and is probably represented by one of the estates in the hundred of Kingsclere held of the king in chief, perhaps by the 2 hides which Ravelin had been holding for twenty years and more. The history of the manor for some time is obscure, but in the middle of the 12th century it was probably held by Ranulf de Broc, usher and chief marshal of the household to Henry II, its tenure being attached to the serjeanty of being usher to the king. On his death about 1187 it was probably assigned in dower to his widow Damietta, the lady of Chetton, Eudon and Berwick (co. Salop), who held it until her death in 1204, in which year the sheriff of Hampshire was ordered to give seisin of the manor to Stephen de Turnham and Edelina his wife, the daughter and heir of Ranulf and Damietta. Stephen held the manor in right of his wife until his death about 1214, when it passed to his widow, who as Edelina of Frobury was returned by the Testa de Nevill as holding 6 worth of land in the vill of Frobury of the king in chief by the serjeanty of guarding the king's door. Edelina survived her husband about six years, leaving by him five daughters and co-heirs, Maud or Mabel the wife of Thomas de Bavelingham, Alice the wife of Adam de Bending, Eleanor who married Roger de Leyburn, Eleanor who married Ralph Fitz Bernard and Beatrice the wife of Ralph de Fay. Frobury fell as her share to Beatrice, probably the eldest daughter, and passed from her to her daughter Philippa the wife of William de Nevill, who in the middle of the 13th century was stated to be holding half a hide in Frobury of the old enfeoffment by the serjeanty of guarding the door of the queen's chamber. In 1249 Philippa de Nevill granted it in free marriage to William de Wintershull, who had married her daughter Beatrice, and from this date Frobury continued in the Wintershull family for about two centuries.

    NOTE: Instead of Stephen de Turnham & Edelina having 2 daughters named Eleanor (as indicated above), the Eleanor (Alianore) who m. Ralph FitzBernard was the daughter of Clemence de Turnham (who was the dau. of Stephen & Edelina) and her 2nd husband Wandril Curcles (per Rosie Bevan in a post to SGM).
