    Copied from the Stradling family website "":
    "Victoria County History of Warwickshire."

    Certain lands in Losley were sold with the manor of Walton Mauduit by the Earl of Warwick to Simon de Wauton, Bishop of Norwich (1258-66). The bishop conveycd them to John de Wauton, who was probably his great-nephew.

    In January 1246 Mr. Simon de Wauton (or Walton) received a grant of a weekly market on Wednesday and a fair on the eve and day of SS. Peter and Paul at his manor of LITTLE WELLESBOURNE. This Mr. Simon, who bought property in Walton Deyville, became Bishop of Norwich in 1258 and died in 1265. His successor Sir John de Wauton died in or shortly before 1277,

    His successor, Roger Deyville, became heavily indebted to the Jews and sold the manor to Simon de Wauton, who granted it to his son John. This Simon may have been identical with the Mr. Simon who held the manor of Welles-bourne Hastings (see above) and who in 1240 bought from William Mauduit and Alice his wife 6 acres in Walton called Litlemede lying beside the Portwey. Mr. Simon was elderly when he became bishop and may well have been married when young.


    Note: I believe that the above indicates that Simon may well have been more than "Uncle" to John, but was his father while he was married before taking the bishopric.
