    Perching Manor, Fulking, Sussex:

    This knight's fee may be identified with the Domesday lands of Tezelin in Fulking and Perching. William son of Tezelin was holding land at Perching at the end of the 11th century. Tezelin's lands evidently followed the descent of his manor of Addington in Surrey, held by the kitchen serjeanty, coming by the beginning of the 13th century to Bartholomew de Chesney. His daughter and heir Isabel married Peter eldest son of Henry Fitz Ailwin, Mayor of London. They were holding land in Perching in 1199. Their younger daughter Joan married William Aguillon as her second husband in 1212, and in 1242-3 William was holding 1 knight's fee in Perching. He died in 1244. His son and heir Sir Robert was granted free-warren in his demesne lands in the manor in 1248, and in 1264 he was allowed to inclose his manorhouse at Perching with a ditch and a stone wall, and to crenellate it. In 1281 he acquired all the tenements of Philip de Percyng in Perching, and in 1284 he was returned as holding the vill. At his death in 1286 his manor of Perching with its member 'Homwode' was said to be held as 1 knight's fee, doing suit at Lewes, and paying 20d for fencing the earl's park at Ditchling, together with 2 bushels of wheat, and paying to Roger Wasp 12d. yearly. This was the main manor of Perching. Robert's heir was his daughter Isabel wife of Hugh Bardolf, to whom the manor descended. Hugh died in 1304 and in 1308-9 his widow settled a manor of Perching on herself and her second son William, with contingent remainders to her daughters Nichole and Margery. Isabel was still holding Perching in 1316 but was not seised of it at her death in 1323.

    The manor appears in the hands of Sir Robert de Arderne, who had land in Perching in 1327 and who was given licence to crenellate his manor-house there in 1329. His wife Nichole was presumably the elder daughter of Isabel Bardolf; she subsequently married Sir Thomas Wale, who was the chief landowner in Perching in 1332 and held the fee. In 1338 John de Molyns appears as the owner of a manor of Perching, and in 1346 Sir John de Molyns and Giles son of Robert de Arderne brought an assize of novel disseisin against William Botevilleyn and others concerning tenements in Perching and elsewhere. When in 1349 William Botevilleyn conveyed the manor of Perching to Michael de Poynings, Thomas Wale and Nichole put in their claim. Michael was holding at his death in 1369 a manor of Perching which appears to correspond with PERCHING MAGNA held by his son Thomas, who died in 1375. Thomas had settled this on his wife Blanche for her life. She died in 1409 and her nephew, Robert de Poynings, was holding the manor in 1412. From that time it followed the descent of Poynings (q.v.), the two manors being held together as half a knight's fee by Sir Anthony Browne of the king in chief.
