    Manor of Wilton, Yorkshire North Riding:

    Like Ellerburn, WILTON (Wiltune, xi cent.; Wilitun, xiii cent.) was soke of Pickering in 1086. Until the 14th century the Bigods held a mesne lordship, Wilton being said to be a member of their manor of Settrington; in the 14th century it was adjudged to be a member of the honour of Pickering. Roger de Clere was tenant of Wilton as of Sinnington in the reign of Henry II, and his descendants had a mesne lordship here throughout the 13th century. Roger enfeoffed John Maunsell, provost of Beverley, who died without issue in about 1264-5. Roger Bigod claimed the fee as escheat on the ground that John was a bastard, but it was also claimed by Richard and Alice de Bruys, who granted it to William their son. William was returned as tenant of 7 carucates here in 12845, but in the summer of 1285 the case came into the courts and was decided in favour of Earl Roger. In 1293 Alice endeavoured to recover the manor on the pretext that the first jury had sworn falsely, but the former judgement was upheld. Roger Bigod in 1302 alienated Wilton to John Lovell, who afterwards conveyed it to John de Heslerton (knighted in 1331), Margery his wife and their heirs. John settled the manor on his son Walter, also a knight, who married Eustacia, a congenital idiot, daughter and heir of Peter de Percy, and died in 1349, leaving a son and heir Walter, a minor. Until the point as to the overlordship was settled Edward III gave the custody to Walter's uncle Thomas, eldest son of John de Heslerton. Alice widow of Thomas had dower from the manor three years later, and Walter, nephew of Thomas, died seised in 1367, when his heir was his uncle Sir Simon de Heslerton, kt. Simon and Katharine his wife in 1375 settled the manor on themselves in tailmale with successive remainders to Sir John de Hotham of Scarborough, kt., and John de Driffield of Lund in tail-male. They evidently left no male issue, and the distinguished Yorkshire family of Hotham have held the manor of Wilton until the present day.
