    Tiddington, Oxfordshire:

    TIDDINGTON was held by Sawold, a royal official, in 1086, having been held freely by Alwi in the Confessor's time. No further trace of the tenancy in chief has been found until 1208, when, in a case concerning it begun in the king's court between Ralph de Bray and William Fitzellis, it was successfully claimed by Henry d'Oilly. Tiddington must therefore have been part of the great d'Oilly estates, then comprising 32 knight's fees in Oxfordshire. In 1232 Henry d'Oilly died, and his honor went to his nephew, Thomas de Newburgh, Earl of Warwick, but Tiddington had been separated from it by 1242-3, for Peter son of Herbert then held it in chief, and Reynold son of Peter held it in 1279. This family also held land in Waterperry, but it is not mentioned again in connexion with Tiddington. Probably the overlordship lapsed; in 1428 a jury stated that the overlord was not known.

    Domesday Book records no under-tenant at Tiddington. In the late 12th century the manor was almost certainly part of the lands of Emma, daughter of Fulk de Bray, whose husband, William Fitzellis, had entered Newburgh Priory in about 1180. Their son William Fitzellis was at law about the property with Ralph de Bray in 1208, and in 1227 Richard de Bray gave up any claim to it. The genealogy of the Fitzellis family, who also obtained Waterperry from Emma de Bray, is rather confused. William (II) Fitzellis died in 1227, and in 1242-3 his widow, Rose de la Rokele, was the lady of Tiddington. They had at least two sons, William (III) Fitzellis and Ellis.

    In 1279 Roger Fitzellis was holding Tiddington; he may have been either a younger son of William (III) Fitzellis, or the son of the younger brother Ellis. The latter is more likely, for William Fitzellis is known to have granted Tiddington to his brother Ellis in fee at a quit rent. This grant was probably made in the second half of the 13th century, but before 1279. Roger Fitzellis had a son William, also known as William de Corston, from his property at Corston (Wilts.), who is recorded as lord of Tiddington in 1316 and died in 1318. His daughter and heiress Elizabeth married Sir John Russell of Bradenstoke (Wilts.) and in 1377 their daughter Joan, who inherited Tiddington, married Thomas Quatremain, a member of the important Oxfordshire family, whose chief seat was Rycote. Thomas Quatremain died in 1398. He was succeeded by his three sons: John (d. 1403), Guy (d. 1414), and Richard, the most prominent member of the family, who played an important part in the 15thcentury history of Oxfordshire. He had commercial interests in London and was a Yorkist supporter. On his death in 1477 his property was divided between the descendants of his two sisters. Tiddington went to his great-nephew, Thomas Danvers, who was already lord of the neighbouring manor of Waterstock. His father was John Danvers, the husband of Joan Bruly, daughter of Richard Quatremain's sister Maud and John Bruly of Waterstock
