Note: N13230 “Richards Castle was the possession of Richard Fitz Scrob; thence it passed to the Says, from whom it went by marriage to Hugh de Ferrers; he left a daughter and heiress Margery; she married Robert de Mortimer, and brought him Richards Castle. On his death she married William de Sutteville, who died in 1259. At the Inquisition on his death he was found to hold in his wife’s right the Manors of Wychbold and Cotheridge; on his death they passed to Sir Hugh de Mortimer, who was then of age, the son of Suttefille’s wife by her first husband. He died in 1275, and in the Inquisition taken on his death was found to be seised of Wychbold, Cotheridge, and Home Castles, all parts of the Barony of Burford.
…The heir was Robert Mortimer, who was then 22; he married Joyce, daughter of William, 2nd Baron Zouch of Ashby, and died in 1287. By the Inquisition taken on his death the Worcestershire possessions of the Mortimers were found to be considerably increased…
There is no finding as to who were the heirs of Robert Mortimer, but from a subsequent Inquisition, with regard to land at Sutton Sturmey, it appears that Robert de Mortimer let to William de Mortimer of Hamme, probably Home Castle, for life, certain lands which on his death went to the heirs of Hugh Mortimer, and that the heirs of Hugh Mortimer and William Mortimer were Joan, aged 17, wife of Thomas de Wikenor, and Margaret, aged 14 1/2, wife of Geoffrey de Cornwall.”
