    Manor of Wiston, Sussex:

    The manor of WISTON was held of Earl Godwin (d. 1053) by Azor. By 1086 it belonged to William de Braose, the overlordship thereafter descending with Bramber rape. In 1086 it was held of William by one Ralph. Ralph of Wiston, who is recorded in the mid 12th century, and his son William of Wiston who occurs locally between 1181 and 1204, were presumably his descendants. William's son Henry had apparently succeeded by 1210, and was called lord of Wiston c. 1230. Another William of Wiston, apparently Henry's son, is recorded in 1238, and held 4 fees in Wiston and West Chiltington in 1242 and later. In 1252 he was granted free warren in his demesne lands at Wiston. In 1272 he granted the reversion of the manor to Adam de Bavent, who was confirmed in free warren there in 1279 and 1285 and had died by 1292.

    Adam's widow Alice was the largest taxpayer in Wiston in 1296.
