    MANOR AND OTHER ESTATES.

    Mitcheldean was presumably in those lands called Dean totalling 2 hides and 2 yardlands, exempted by Edward the Confessor from the payment of geld in return for the guarding of the Forest of Dean and held in 1066 by the thegns Godric, Elric, and Ernui and in 1086 by William son of Norman. William's estate seems to have passed to his son Hugh (fl. 1130) and later to Miles of Gloucester (d. 1143) and his son Roger, earl of Hereford, from whom William of Dean held an estate and an office in the Forest for 20s. rent. That estate became known as the manor of DEAN or MITCHELDEAN and the office was probably the woodwardship of the later bailiwick of Mitcheldean. William was described as the king's forester and his son Geoffrey of Dean held the bailiwick in 1199. Geoffrey's son William, recorded in the early 13th century as a tenant of the Crown by serjeanty, was presumably the William of Dean (d. c. 1259) who held a moiety of the manor, comprising 2 ploughlands and 6 marks rent in Mitcheldean, from the Crown for a cash rent of 10s. Custody of the bailiwick had been forfeited to the Crown in 1250. William's estate passed to his descendants, who paid the rent to the St. Briavels castle estate. The bailiwick, from which a separate bailiwick of Littledean was created before 1282, remained in the custody of others until 1319 or later, but by 1384 it was held with part of Mitcheldean manor by Joan of Dean. It apparently remained with the lords of that part until the late 18th century.

    William of Dean's moiety of Mitcheldean manor passed at his death c. 1259 to his son Henry of Dean, sometimes also surnamed of Lasborough. From Henry (d. c. 1292) it descended in turn to his son William of Dean (d. c. 1310) and to William's son William of Dean (d. c. 1319). The latter's heirs were his infant daughters Joan and Isabel and in 1320 their mother Isabel was granted his lands for their use. By 1328 the moiety of Mitcheldean manor was in the hands of William's elder daughter Joan and her husband John Esger. By 1334 Joan had married Ralph Baynham (ap Eynon), who was dead in 1366, and later she granted a rent of 10 from the manor to her son Thomas Baynham, who was probably dead in 1376 when the rent was confirmed to his wife Joan. Joan of Dean was alive in 1384 when her heir was said to be her daughter Margaret, wife of William of the hall, constable of Grosmont (Mon.), but by 1395 her share of the manor had passed to John Baynham, a minor and the son and heir of Thomas Baynham. John (fl. 1411) had been succeeded by 1418 by Robert Baynham (d. 1436), whose share of the manor was described as two thirds and by then evidently included the right to fill two of every three vacancies in Mitcheldean rectory. Robert's son and heir Thomas, a minor, by 1471 also held the other part of the manor, together with Abenhall, in the right of his second wife Alice Walwyn. At his death in 1500 his own part passed to Sir Alexander Baynham, his son by his first marriage, and from Sir Alexander (d. 1524)....
