The following is part of a post to SGM, 2 May 2004, by Rosie Bevan:
Gayburton, or Gate Burton, and Lea were part of the Trehampton holding of two knights' fees of the honour of Richmond and they descended with Margaret Trehampton, wife of John Brewes d.1342. [EYC 5 p. 242. The Honour of Richmond].
After Margaret's death in 1354, six inquisitions concerning her holdings in Lincolnshire were held [CIPM X no. 211]. They record that she was holding the manors of Lea, Gate Burton, Scothern and Herlaxton being the sister and heir of John son of Ralph Trehampton, and she married Sir John Brewes by whom she had a son, John, an idiot. After Sir John's death she married Sir Norman de Swynford who took advantage of John's idiocy and sold land, expelled tenants and committed waste in all of the manors except Harlaxton which was occupied by Edmund de Swynford.
In 1357 there was an inquisition to ascertain what had been in Sir John Brewes' possession on account of the escheator taking in his son's lands because his idiocy. [CIPM X 390] records that both Thomas de Brewes, Mary Countess of Norfolk and John, earl of Warenne, from whom the lands were held, periodically held his manor of Wauton and tenements in Reigate in Surrey after the escheator took his lands on account of his idiocy.
