Name: Roger de HERDEBURGH , of Hartwell & Harborough 1 2
Birth: ABT 1198 in Hartwell, Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire, England
Death: AFT 1253 in Harborough Magna, Rugby, Warwickshire, England 2
In Domesday Book HARBOROUGH is rated at 8½ hides, 4½ being held by Richard the Forester and 4 by Anseis, in each case directly of the king. Richard's holding had before 1066 been held freely by four thegns, that of Anseis by Bruning.
Hugh de Loges, a descendant of Richard the Forester, quitclaimed 16 virgates in HARBOROUGH MAGNA to Roger de Herdebergh in 1232. This Roger was in 1253 exempted from being put on assizes, juries, or in quests, and from being made sheriff, verderer, or coroner....
Roger de Herdebergh, son of Hugh mentioned above, died in or before 1284 leaving two daughters as coheiresses, Ela, wife successively of Walter de Hopton and William le Boteler, and Isabel wife of John de Hulles. In 1305 Ela, after the death of her first husband, granted her (half of) the manor to her sister and brother-in-law to hold from the chief lords. John de Peyto, husband of Alice, daughter and eventual heiress of John and Isabel de Hulles and previously wife of John de Langley, settled the manor on his son John in 1326, when John de Watevill is mentioned as holding a moiety of the manor for life; he was brother-in-law of Alice de Peyto. In 1339 John de Peyto the elder granted the reversion of the manor, after the death of John de Peyto the younger, to Sir Walter de Hopton and Joan his wife. The younger John, who was involved in a lawsuit with the Abbot of Combe over waste committed in the manor of Harborough Magna in 1370, survived till 1373, when the reversion came to John de Hopton, Sir Walter's son. The Hoptons continued to hold an interest in the manor, sometimes described as a full share and sometimes as a moiety, till the death of Walter Hopton in 1461, when it passed to the Corbet family of Moreton Corbet (Salop.) by the marriage of his sister Elizabeth to Roger Corbet. His great-grandson, another Roger Corbet, who died in 1538, apparently settled the manor on Jerome and Robert, two of his younger sons, who with Robert's wife Jane passed it in 1569 to their eldest brother Sir Andrew Corbet.
