    BASKERVILLE FAMILY HISTORY

    Supplied by Brian Erwin

    Edited by Peter Baskerville Rance.

    His [James Baskerville's] eldest son SIR WALTER, who was created a knight on the marriage of Prince Authur in 1501, succeeded Sir James. SIR WALTER married twice and had nine children. His first wife ANNE MORGAN of Pencoyd, was mother to his son James, who took to wife Elizabeth, heiress of John Breyton, whose wife Sibella was third daughter of Symon Milbourne. They had five sons, James Baskerville the eldest had no issue by Catherine daughter of Walter, Viscount Hereford, so the second son John Baskerville, became knight of Eardisley. Burke writes, "This male issue terminated upon the demise of his grandson, Sir Humphery Baskerville in 1617, whose wife was Elizabeth, daughter of Sir Thomas Coningsby of Hampton Court", but Robinson in his,"Mansions and Manors of Herefordshire" gives, in the Baskerville pedigree, two more generations. Robinson also in "Castles of Herefordshire and their Lords," writes of Sir Humphrey Baskerville in the Civil War, ". Though he took the King's side, he was not actively engaged in the struggle." The importance of the family declined, find [ran receiving 3,000 a year, they were reduced to 300. The castle was burnt to the ground, leaving only one gatehouse standing, in which, the representative of the family was living in 1670 as a comparatively poor man. There is certainly no mention of the family in Webb's "Memorials of the Civil War in Herefordshire". [1990. P.B.R. This is not correct a James Baskerville was one of seven men who surprised the defenders of Hereford's Bishops gate in 1645 and captured the city for the Parliamentary army .See Appendix 'A'.]
