    Manor of Norton Bravant, Wiltshire:

    Alfred of Marlborough held NORTON in 1086. Like most of his Wiltshire fief it formed part of the honor of Ewyas in the 13th century, the overlordship descending in the same way as that of Upton Scudamore. Unlike Upton no undertenant was mentioned at Norton in 1086; it was probably among the Wiltshire fees of the honor held by the Scudamores in the 12th century, but its certain connexion with the family has not been established before 1216, when it had been forfeited by Peter Scudamore. It descended in the same way as Upton to another Peter Scudamore who died in 1293 leaving as heir to most of his Wiltshire estates except Upton, a daughter Alice, wife of Adam Bavant. She was a widow then or soon afterwards, and her son Roger was still a minor in 1306. He had been succeeded by his son, another Roger, by 1338. Six years later the younger Roger granted almost all his estates in Wiltshire and elsewhere to the king. The reason for his doing this is not fully clear, but there are indications that he was estranged from his wife Hawise. Certain feoffees successfully reclaimed the Wiltshire lands in 1344 because Roger had previously granted them an estate for the life of Hawise, to pay her and her children an allowance. Roger died in 1355. After his death Hawise alleged that in fact the property was entailed upon her and her issue, but the claim was apparently backed by a deed sealed with a forged seal which Roger had disclaimed before he died, and on her son and heir John leaving for Italy to become a Franciscan friar, she withdrew it.

    NOTE: The dates for Adam & Roger I & II Bavant, above, do not always agree with CP (which I am using). For example Roger did not die in 1338, but had granted his manor to his son in 1336 (see notes for Peter d. 1220).
