      The Story of Purton
      ...As far as we know, West Marsh was the first Purton home of the family, and there George and Jane Maskelyne lived in the days of Queen Elizabeth. The touching story of Jane is told in the chapter about the Church, where allusions are made to her grandfather Richard Pulley, and to her aunt Isabel Joy (nee Pulley), who lived at that time at the Manor House, close to the Church and Great Tithe Barn. The endless quarrels arising from the length of the conventual leases given to the Pulley family, which overlapped Lord Chandos' purchase of the Manor, are also described in Chapter iv. After the dissolution of the Abbey, the church lands x originally given by pious benefactors for the maintenance of church light were let by the Church- wardens to George Maskelyne of West Marsh, for the benefit of the Church.

      After the death of George and Jane Maskelyne, their son Edmund, who was a member of the Inner Temple and a Feodary of the Duchy of Lancaster, added largely to the land belonging to the family He was lord of the Manors of Cricklade and Chelworth and of Slaughter (Co. Gloucester), and M.P. for Cricklade in 1625. As a lawyer he was greatly interested in the very early enclosure of Purton Common, agreed upon by Lord Chandos and his Purton neighbours in 1596-97.
