    Manor of Lapworth, Warwickshire:

    About the end of the 12th century Ralph Marshal granted virgate of land in Lapworth to Geoffrey [Prat] son of Alexander, and when Ralph's son Geoffrey confirmed this grant to Henry, son of Geoffrey Prat, he is styled dominus terre. The Marshals continued to hold land in the parish, but apparently the lordship passed to the family of Pipard. Ives Pipard,son of Sir Robert Pipard of Bishampton (Worcs.), granted to Henry Palmer and Agnes land in his waste of Wolvernewode, 'with all liberties and free customs existing in the territory of Lapworth'; his deed being witnessed by Geoffrey Marshal and Robert Pipard. In 1236 John Comin, with Geoffrey Corbezun and Juliana his wife, conveyed to Henry Pipard and Nichole his wife and her heirs 2 virgates in Lapworth, and about the same time Sir Henry Pipard is called chief lord of the fee there. He died c. 1258 leaving two daughters, of whom Denise was wife of Sir Robert de Harecurt and Cecily wife of Sir Thomas de Bishopsdon. The main manor seems to have been assigned to Denise, as in 1265 Simon de Montfort, Earl of Leicester, held the manor of Lapworth, valued at 24, during the minority of the heir of Robert de Harecurt, whose marriage he had granted, with a lease of the manor, to Peter le Porter. Robert's son William de Harecurt granted most of his demesne land, including part of his court and chief mansion, and also his bond tenants to Master Henry de Brandeston. Henry, who is presumably the Archdeacon of Dorset who became Bishop of Salisbury in 1287, conveyed Lapworth to his brother Hugh and his wife Margaret in tail. This must have been in or before 1282, in which year Ives Pipard, rector of Lapworth, granted all his lands in the manor to Sir Hugh de Brandeston, as did Leger Pipard, son of the late Robert Pipard, and his mother Margery. Hugh had a grant of free warren in his demesnes at Lapworth in 1292 and died in 1299 seised of the manor with 3 carucates of land, held of the Honor of Leicester as half a knight's fee. His son Henry was then aged 16; he in 1317 settled the manor on himself, his wife Pernel, and their son Hugh, reserving a life interest in certain estates to his daughter Lettice. Hugh is mentioned as lord of Lapworth in 1348, at which date his wife was Christine, and in 1359, and1361, when his wife's name was Sybil. He died in 1362 leaving three daughters, of whom one, Beatrice, was a nun at Wroxall; his estates were therefore divided between the other two: Rose, who married Richard de Montfort, and Agnes, who married first Philip de Aylesbury and afterwards John Buckmore. The two coheirs and their husbands agreed in 1364 to bring a joint suit for the manor against Sir John [?] and John Page (presumably Hugh's executors) and on its recovery to divide it....

    Hugh de Brandeston's other daughter Lady Rose de Montfort survived her husband and was still living at the end of 1420, but in 1427 a settlement was made by which her moiety of the manor of Lapworth was conveyed to Margaret, the elder of her two granddaughters, and John Catesby her husband in tail, with contingent remainders to Richard Merbrook, formerly husband of Margaret's sister Ellen, and his son William. Margaret, as a widow, was lady of the manor in 1439 and with her son Sir William Catesby made a lease of crofts in Haseleholt, to be assarted, in 1451. In 1458 Sir William was dealing with the moiety of the manor. He married Philippa, daughter and eventually heir of Sir William Bishopsdon, and thereby acquired another manorial estate in the parish.

    As already stated, Henry Pipard's younger daughter Cicely married Sir William de Bishopsdon. Their grandson Sir John made a contract for the building of a gatehouse at his manor of Lapworth in 1313 and had a grant of free warren in his lands here in 1319. In 1320 Henry de Brandeston granted his manor of Lapworth to Sir John, who held a court there in 1334. Apparently, however, Hugh's grant was in the nature of a settlement, as the manor was to revert to him and his heirs on Sir John's death, and meanwhile Sir John leased the estate to him. Moreover, in both 1330 and 1361 the Lancaster fee of Lapworth was held by Hugh de Brandeston 'and his parceners' (i.e. the Bishopsdons). Sir John's great-grandson Sir William Bishopsdon made a settlement of the manor in 1439 and died in 1447, leaving two daughters: Elizabeth, wife of Thomas Palmer (who apparently died without issue), and Philippa who, as already mentioned, married Sir William Catesby.

    By this marriage the manor of Lapworth was reunited. Sir William's son William forfeited his lands for treason in 1487, but they were restored to his son George in 1495.
