    Manor of Eaton Hastings, Berkshire:

    In 1086 Walter son of Ponz held the manor of EATON HASTINGS (20 hides) except for 3 hides which had been given by Ponz to Westminster Abbey. Walter's whole Domesday estate was subsequently held in chief by the family of Hastings for five knights' fees, described in one place as the honour of Hastings, of which Eaton represented one fee, while one was in Oxfordshire and the remaining three were in Gloucestershire. It seems probable that this Hastings family was descended from Walter son of Ponz. In 1130 John son of Walter paid 80 marks in order that the manor of Eaton should be assessed as in 1086 at 6 hides. His immediate successors seem to have been called 'de Hastings' and 'de Eton' indifferently. Ralph 'de Hastinges de Etone' paid scutage for the three knights' fees in Gloucestershire in 1160 and 1161, and appears in the Berkshire Pipe Roll of the latter year. By 1165 he had been succeeded by William 'de Hetton.' William was dead in 1189, when John de Hastings his brother owed 61 13s. 4d. for livery of his land. John is mentioned in the scutage lists from 1194 to 1201, and held 'the whole fee of Eaton' about 1212. His successor was William de Hastings, probably his son, the custody of whose land and heir was granted to Osbert Giffard in 1224. The heir in question was apparently the William de Hastings, who was tenant in about 1240. He died in 1278, leaving a daughter and heir Joan, then the wife of Sir Benedict de Blakenham. In 1297 her son and heir Benedict conveyed the manor, saving the dower of Isabel widow of William de Hastings, to Alice wife of Hugh de St. Philibert, on behalf of her husband, who was in Flanders. This Hugh de St. Philibert was the lord of Sulham, the descent of which property (q.v. in Theale Hundred) was followed by Eaton Hastings until 1353, when John de St. Philibert surrendered this manor to the king, reserving a life interest to himself and his wife Margaret. In the next year he and Margaret leased the manor to the Crown for ten years. Edward III immediately bestowed the lease upon his daughter Isabel. In 1358 it was converted into a grant in fee, and the manor was transferred to the use of Isabel. In the same year, however, she surrendered it to the king, who gave it to William Trussell of Kibblestone in Stone (co. Staff.) in exchange for Folly John, and agreed to pay 1d. yearly to John de St. Philibert and 40 marks yearly to his wife after his death in recompense for their interest.

    In 1371 the manor was settled on Fulk de Penbrugge and Margaret (Trussell) his wife in tail, with remainder to her cousin William Trussell. Margaret died childless, but her cousin and heir William son of Laurence Trussell confirmed the estate in 1407 to Fulk de Penbrugge and his second wife Isabel for Fulk's life and twenty years afterwards. Fulk died in 1409, and William Trussell was in possession in 1428. He died in 1463, leaving a son and heir Thomas. Thomas Trussell was succeeded by his son, another William, who died in 1481. Edward, William's son and heir, dying in 1499 while still a minor, left an infant son John, who survived him only a few months; the estate then devolved upon Elizabeth the sister of John. She afterwards married John de Vere, Earl of Oxford, and their son John conveyed the manor in 1544 to the king, who sold it in the following year to Sir Thomas Seymour.
