    • Will of Thomas Strangways of Stynysford, Dorset 24 March 1484 PROB 11/7
      "Thomas Strangwayes (or Strangsyash), Esq., eldest son of Roger Strangwayes (by Alice, da. of Robert Orrell, Esq.). Born 1430. Mar. 1 Edw. IV. (1460). Died 1484. Will dated 18 Dec. 1484; proved 24 March 1484-5 by Alianor the relict (Logge, 21). Buried at Abbotsbury."

      Giles Strangways’s grandfather was the first of the family to settle in Dorset, having been persuaded to leave Yorkshire by Thomas Grey, 1st Marquess of Dorset. Melbury Sampford, which became the family residence, was acquired by Giles’s father Henry through his second marriage to the widow of William Browning of Melbury; five years after Henry’s death his son had a house in London and property in eight counties and the Isle of Wight. The estates in Dorset were to be further increased by a grant in 1543 of the dissolved abbey of Abbots-bury and the manors of Abbotsbury and East Elworth, for which Strangways paid nearly £2,000.4
