    --------------

    LONG WITTENHAM,

    Yet another holding, subsequently called a manor, must have been part of the Plessis fee. Hugh de Plessis gave land to his daughter Margaret during the reign of Edward I, and she married William de Barforth (Bereford) and left a son Edmund and three daughters. Edmund died seised of tenements, including a passage over the Thames and a fishery therein, in 1354, when his heirs were his sisters Joan wife of Sir Gilbert de Elsfield, kt., Margaret wife of Sir James de Audley, kt., and Agnes wife of John Mautravers, both Edmund's sons, John and Baldwin, being illegitimate. In 1362 John Mautravers and Alice, Gilbert de Elsfield son of Joan, and William de Audley son of Margaret called Baldwin de Barforth to warrant to them lands here which Eva widow of John de Barforth, then wife of John Roklee, claimed as dower. In 1397 William Elsfield, son of Gilbert, leased all his lands here to Thomas Barentyne, as did Thomasine his widow in 1399 to Joan widow of Thomas Barentyne and Edmund Hamden. In 1401 Sir Baldwin de Barforth, kt., quitclaimed all right in the manor to Drew Barentyne, to whom Sir Philip Seyntclere, kt., Sir lvo Fitz Waryn, kt., and Maud his wife, Sir Baldwin Seyntgeorge, kt., and the co-heirs of William Elsfield, viz., John Hore and Joan his wife, and Thomas Loundres and Joan his wife, quitclaimed the manor in 1401. It was then settled by Drew Barentyne and others on Sir Baldwin de Barforth and Elizabeth his wife in fee, with remainder to John Hore and Joan his wife in fee. Some subsequent arrangement must have been made for it was not delivered to John Hore with the manor of Wishaw, co. Warwick, in 1423. Drew Barentyne died in 1453 seised of the 'manor,'held jointly with his wife Joan and Christopher Preston and Elizabeth his wife, Joan and Elizabeth being daughters and heirs of John Drayton. He left a son and heir John. Elizabeth afterwards married John Wenlock, who became Lord Wenlockin 1461, and the whole estate was settled on them in 1463, John Barentyne having apparently given up his claim. In March 1465-6 Lord Wenlock sold the manor to Alice Duchess of Suffolk, who died in 1475 From: 'Parishes: Long Wittenham', A History of the County of Berkshire: Volume 4 (1924), pp. 384-390.
