    • History of the noble house of Stourton, of Stourton, in the county of Wilts; (Volume 1). (page 6 of 62)
      ....of this John Stourton as issue of this marriage, although Hoare's copy o( the College of Arms pedigree shewed Alice to be sole issue, while Collins' Peerage (Bridges) merely implied he left issue, because that writer stated the three younger brothers died without issue. She married secondly, John Beynton, of Hampreston, Dorset. She married, thirdly, William Wadham, who died 20th March, 1473. She married, fourthly, William Carent, of Toomer, Esquire, which marriage is confirmed by Edmondson, Collins, and Harl. MS. 1074. William Carent is identified as having previously married Margaret Stourton, sister of Sir John Stourton, knight, created Baron of Stourton. William Carent was the king's escheator for Counties Somerset and Dorset, in 8-9 Henry V. and i Henry VI., then called "junior," sometime Sheriff of those counties, M.P. for Co. Somerset, and founder, 20th March, 1463, 3 Edward IV., of the obiit in Henstridge Church for himself, his wife, Margaret (Stourton) and others, he dying 8th April, 1476.

      By Catherine Payne, or Pyne, (who is mentioned in her husband's will, and whose arms were blended with Stourton and Sydenham in the book plate referred to on page 73,) John Stourton had a daughter and coheir:-
      Alice Stourton, who was aged 7 years in 1439, and from her father she inherited Pendomer Manor, &c., under his settlement and entail as before shewn under his name, which premises were eventually disentailed by her descendant, Henry Daubeney, created Earl of Bridgewater, and sold by him. She married (i) William Daubgney. Lord of Barrington, Co. Somerset, son and heir of Sir Giles Daubeney, knight, and consequently ancestor of Henry Daubeney, created Earl of Bridgewater ; and (2)Robert Hill of Houndston Manor, Co. Somerset, who died in 1493, seised of that Manor, &c., his arms, impaling those of Stourton, were setup in Dunster Church, (Harl. MS., 1559, fo. 235.) Hoare in his copy of the College of Arms pedigree, says she married, i. - William Daubeney, Esq., and 2.- Robert Hill, although Edmondson only gives the first husband, but the Visitation for Co. Worcester confirmed Hoare, calling her father Jenkin Stourton. Harleian Manuscript 1074, likewise supported these marriages, although wrongly stating her mother to have been Alice Peny, her fathers second wife, but this was corrected by the old pedigree of 1509 which added that her first husband was Lord of Baryngton.
      We find that on the north wall of Little Cheney Church, Co. Dorset, there was erected a monument to the memory of her son, George Daubeney, on which the arms of Daubeney, Stourton, dc Bosco, Moyne, &c., appeared on the dexter side. Her daughter, Alice Hill married Sir Nicholas Wadham, of Merryfield, Co. Somerset, knight, who by his will, of 25th Nov., 1539, proved [15 Spert] 30th Jan., 1542, appointed Roger Fauntleroy an executor, and Lord Stourton an overseer; and the will of his wife, Dame Jane Wadham, was made 22nd July, 1557, proved [29 Wrastley] 31st August, 1557. We read under Charles, 8th Lord Stourton, of William Fauntleroy and Cecily, his wife, Lessees of Stourton Manor, being illegally disturbed in their possession of that property by the action of this Agnes Rice, whose mother afterwards married the above Henry Daubeney, created Earl of Bridgewater. All the authorities shew that Sir John Stourton, created Baron of Stourton, Co. Wilts., married Margery, daughter of Sir John Wadham, of Merryfield, Co. Somerset, knight.

      John Stourton, and his trustees, had release, on 25th Oct., 1409, of the premises from John Duke, husband of Elizabeth, eldest daughter and coheir of the vendor, which premises John Stourton settled on his third daughter and cohier Alice, and her issue, by William Daubeney, her husband, with remainder over in favour of his two elder daughters, Mrs. Sydenham and Mrs. Kyryell, and others successively in tail, to the heirs of the body of his sister, Edith, late wife of Sir Robert Shottesbroke, knight, to John Lynde (nephew of the settlor, John Stourton), and William Carent, of Toomer;....
