    The following was copied from VCH-Northampton, following the descent of Burton Latimer or Ayelesford's Manor

    Manors of Burton Latimer

    In the reign of Edward the Confessor, Earl Ralph, probably the earl of Hereford, held 8 hides of land, which constituted, until the first half of the 13th century, the manor of Burton, and paid the service due from 1 knights' fees. In 1086, it was held of the king in chief by Guy de Reinbuedcurt, whose son Richard was the tenant under Henry I. Richard is said to have pledged the manor in payment of a gambling debt, to the King, who granted it, to hold at pleasure, to Alan de Dinant, a Breton who defeated the champion of the King of France near Gisors. This grant, which was continued to Alan's successors, evidently caused confusion as to the payment of scutage, and in 1173-74 an inquiry was ordered as to the fee which Roland de Dinant held of the King. Margery, the daughter and heir of Richard de Reinbuedcurt, married Robert Foliot and their descendants continued to return Burton amongst their fees. Margery, the granddaughter of Robert Foliot, brought their rights in the manor to her husband Wischard Ledet, who answered for the Foliot barony in 1210-12. In 1215, his lands were seized by King John, and his Northamptonshire holdings were granted to Hugh Neville. Ledet, however, recovered Burton, which escheated to the Crown at his death, about 1221. It seems clear, however, that at this time, or a few years later, a division of the manor was made between the heir of Wischard Ledet and the successors of Alan de Dinant. The former relinquished the overlordship of the whole manor and obtained a third of the township of Burton, which formed a separate manor, held in chief of the King in demesne as half a knight's fee. It was known as AYLESFORD'S MANOR or BURTON LATIMER. Wischard Ledet's heir was his daughter Christina, the wife first of Henry de Braybroc and then of Gerard de Furnival.) She outlived both her eldest son Wischard, who took the name of Ledet, and his son Walter, so that on her death between 1266 and 1270, her heirs were Walter's daughters Alice and Christina, the wives of the brothers William and John Latimer, and Burton was apparently assigned to Alice. In the meantime, the manor had been subinfeudated. In 1242 it was held by Henry de Aldwinkle, probably only for life, since it was given, possibly in the lifetime of Christina, to her younger son Gerard de Furnival. He gave it to his elder daughter Christina, the wife of William de Aylesford or Eylesford, and it was held of the Latimers for the rent of 1 oz. of silk or 12d. a year. The younger Christina, as a widow, apparently granted it both to Gerard de Furnival and to John Devereux and, though an ensuing lawsuit in 1283 was decided in favour of Furnival, Devereux evidently obtained a further grant of it for life as he died seised in 1316. It reverted to Christina's son, Gerard de Aylesford and passed in direct succession to Edmund, John and John de Aylesford. The last granted all his right in the manor in 1369 to his overlord William, Lord Latimer, the greatgrandson of Alice Ledet. On the death of Lord Latimer's widow in 1389 it passed to their daughter Elizabeth and by her marriage to the Nevilles, who held it till the death of John Neville, Lord Latimer, in 1577.
