    Corton Manor, Hilmarton, Wiltshire:

    William FitzEllis was seised of Corton in the earlier 13th century. In 1242-3 it was held by Roger Waspail of William FitzEllis, who held of the chief lord. FitzEllis was succeeded by a son William (d. 1262), and this son granted Corton to his younger son Roger FitzEllis. Roger, who died in 1302, also acquired an estate in Clevancy and henceforth the manor of CORTON and these lands in Clevancy, sometimes known as Corton Clevancy, followed the same descent. Roger was succeeded by his son William (d. 1318), and William's heir was his daughter Elizabeth. Elizabeth married John Russell of Bradenstoke, usually called simply Johnof Bradenstoke, who presented to the free chapel of Corton in 1344, 1350, and 1354. John Russell, son of John of Bradenstoke and Elizabeth, both of whom died in 1363, married first Alice Elkested and by her had a son Nicholas. He married secondly Agnes and they had a daughter Joan. After John Russell's death Agnes married secondly Walter Botiller and Corton was held by her and her husband during the minority of Nicholas Russell. On coming of age Nicholas granted Corton to Agnes and Walter but shortly afterwards he made a similar grant to John Dauntsey and great confusion ensued. After the death of Agnes, Corton should have passed by settlement to William, son of Nicholas, with remainder to John, son of Agnes and Walter Botiller. Both William and John died, however, before Agnes, and so the manor passed to Joan Russell, daughter of Agnes by John Russell of Bradenstoke.

    Joan Russell married Thomas Quatremains and they were succeeded by a son Richard. Richard died childless in 1477 and Corton passed to Thomas Danvers, son of Joan Danvers, who was the daughter of Richard's sister Maud. In 1482 Thomas Danvers sold the manor to Bishop William of Waynflete, who devised it to Magdalen College, Oxford, recently founded by him.

    NOTE: Other sources such as Tiddington (Oxfordshire) indicate that Roger was a nephew, being son of William's brother Ellis (whom he had already granted Tiddington), not a younger son of William.
