      ..... EDMUND - CHAMBERLAINE [Thomas ^] of Maugersbury, co. GIouc. ob. circa 1634. 1st wife: Anne, dau. of and widow of Moulton of Surrey, s. p. 2d wife: Grace, dau. of [John] Strangeways of Melbury, CO. Dorset. [He purchased the manors of Stow and Maugersbury in 1603, and indulged in a long litigation with "the Stow people as to market dues and other manerial perquisites in which the latter lost their cause and were mulcted heavily in costs." (Bigland.) These manors lie eighteen miles northeast of the city of Gloucester. "He was high-sheriff of Glocestershire 39 Eliz." (At- kyns.) In 1608 he had ten men servants "fit for His Majesty's service in the Wars." He died April 12, 1634. His wife Grace survived him. He was possessed of the manor of Stow, alias Stow on the Old (Wold), alias Stow St. Edward, and the manor of Malgersbury, alias Mawgersbury, both of which he held of the King in chief by knight's service, each by the twentieth part of a knight's fee. Three "mes- suages and 6^ virgates of land," - that is, three homesteads and about 200 acres, - belonging to the manor of Maugersbury, w^ere settled upon the second son, Ed- mund,'^ for the term of eighty years. Of the manors of Stow and Maugersbury, one-third was settled upon the eldest son John ^ and his wife Elizabeth, and two- thirds were settled upon the widow Grace for life with reversion to the son John."^ This was by indenture dated Oct. 12, 1631, executed in anticipation of John's marriage. Edmund ' was, also, at his death, "seised in fee-tail of one capital mes- suage in Presbury with a garden, orchard, yard, etc., thereto belonging," which he "held of the King as of his manor of East Greenwich ... in free and common socage and not ... by knight's service"; also a reversion of "one CHAMBERLAINE OF MAUGERSBURY 73 house or tenement in Stowe and the lands thereto belonging lying in the common fields of Netherswell and Overwell," and "one close in Stow called Gill Stevens," in both of which Joan Freeman held a life interest. These lands were held of the King by the same tenure as the house in Prestbury. {Abstracts of Gloucestershire Inquisitiones post mortem, 1625-36, ed. by W. P. W. Phillimore and George S. Fry, pp. 208-211. British Record Society, Index Library, vol. 9.) Presumably this did not represent all of his estate, as lands owned by his father. Sir Thomas, and his elder brother, Sir John, of whom he was the heir, are found later in the possession of his great-grandson, - for instance the manors of Church Down and Shurdington. A view of the manor-house of Maugersbury (about 1700), and the coat of arms of the family, appear at p. 365 of Atkyns.]
