Manor of HONILEY,
Before the Conquest HONILEY was held by Alwold, a free man. In 1086 it belonged to the Count of Meulan, and it passed with his other Warwickshire estates to Henry, Earl of Warwick, and his descendants, who were still overlords in 1386.
Part of the manor was given by Waleran, Earl of Warwick (1184-1204), to Ralph de Grafton, who obtained other land at Honiley from Hugh FitzWilliam of Hatton. Ralph died about 1204 and his lands became the subject of a dispute between Ralph Boteler and Henry de Bereford. Henry proved his claim to be heir of Ralph de Grafton, and undertook that when the land had been delivered to him he would give Petronella widow of Ralph one third of the land and a reasonable share of Ralph's goods. In 1207 Petronella was disputing the ownership of land in Honiley with Margaret de Grafton, Ralph's sister. Petronella by a former husband Geoffrey Pecche had a son Richard Pecche, who on his marriage with Hawise daughter of William de Arderne acquired land in Honiley from his father-in-law. In1208 Henry de Bereford granted to Richard Pecche half the lands of Ralph de Grafton and the reversion of the other half after his own death, and at the same time Petronella released to Henry all her demands upon the chattells of Ralph de Grafton. Richard undertook to keep in repair the fence between his land and that of the Earl of Warwick and of Hugh Fitz William. Margaret sister of Ralph de Grafton quitclaimed to Richard Pecche all her rights in this land, and Margaret's daughter Felice confirmed this. After Richard's death his widow Hawise granted certain land at Honiley to Richard de Gimescote, who had married her daughter Petronella. The manor passed to Richard's son John, whose son Sir John Pecche granted it in 1318-19 to his younger son Nicholas for his life. Sir John confirmed this gift to Nicholas in 1334. Nicholas was collector of a fifteenth in co. Warwick in 1348, and presented to the church of Honiley in 1354. On his death before 1366 the manor passed to his nephew Sir John Pecche, who died seised of it in 1376, leaving a son John aged 15. John died ten years later, and his two infant daughters Joan and Margaret were his heirs. Katherine, mother of the two children, married Sir Kinard de la Bere, and he and Katherine presented to the church on three occasions between 1396 and 1410. In 1411 Honiley was settled on Katherine for her life, with remainder to her daughter Margaret and her husband Sir William de Mountfort of Coleshill. Sir William survived Margaret and died about 1452, when his son Sir Baldwin succeeded. Sir Simon son of Baldwin was indicted of treason in 1465, but was pardoned in the following year, and in 1480 Honiley manor was settled on him and his wife Emily. Sir Simon was attainted for rebellion in 1495, and the manor passed to the Crown. From: 'Parishes: Honiley', A History of the County of Warwick: Volume 3: Barlichway hundred (1945), pp. 120-123.
