  • ID: I10769
  • Name: Adam "The Younger" de POYNINGS , Sir 1
  • Sex: M
  • Birth: BEF 1126 in Poynings, Steyning, Sussex, England 2
  • Death: BEF 29 SEP 1202 1
  • Note:
    ADAM DE POYNINGS the younger, son and heir (a), confirmed to Lewes Priory the 12 solidates of land and the messuages at a date not earlier than 1164 (b); and circa 1180 he exchanged with the priory the church of Pyecombe for that of Poynings. He gave to the same house, for the soul of Beatrice his mother, tithe of his cheeses in Poynings and Pangdean; and he frequently occurs as a witness in charters issued thereto in 1147 and the ensuing period. In 1194 he occurs as attorney for Hamelin, Earl de Warenne; he was living in Easter term 1198 (g), and died before Michaelmas 1202. [Complete Peerage X:657, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (a) Adam the elder had two other sons, John and William, who according to the deduction made "Ante", p. 656, note (c), were younger sons. John witnessed as John de Puninges a Norfolk charter of the (third) Earl to Lewes Priory, and as John de Punigges, in company with the (third) Earl, another Norfolk charter to the priory. After his death several benefactions were made to his memory. The (third) Earl made a gift to Castle Acre Priory for his soul; and confirmed the gift made to Lewes Priory by William and Adam sons of Beatrice de Puningis for the soul of John their brother, namely 10 marks, from Poynings mill. This latter gift was confirmed by Adam de Ponnynges (the younger), describing it as made by William his brother and Beatrice his mother for the soul of John his brother. Another commemorative gift was made by William de Chesney and Aubreye his wife, which Aubreye is described as sister of Adam son of Adam de Pynyngis in a charter post 1164. This evidence suggests that John died after his father Adam the elder, who must therefore have died during the tenure of the Earldom by the third Earl, and therefore before his departure for the crusade in 1147.

    Note: William de Warenne was the 3rd Earl.

    (b) The grantor is described as Adam son of Adam de Punyngis, and the first witness is Hamelin, Earl de Warenne.

    (g) It is possible that these later references are to a younger Adam, but of this there is no corroborative evidence.
