      • ....This moiety evidently passed from the Norton family to the family of Okedenin the latter half of the 16th century and in 1604 wasconveyed by Sir William Okeden to Sir WilliamDodington of Breamore.(fn.10) By 1624, however, it had been again acquired by William Okeden under conditions appointed in the conveyance,(fn.11) and in 1670 his descendant, also William Okeden, pleaded before the justice seat held at Lyndhurst, though apparently without warrant, the right to claim estovers, and to be quit of the expeditation of his dogs in the New Forest by virtue of the charter of Henry III mentioned above. (fn. 12) From this date Linwood is not mentioned by name, its existence being merged in the Okedens' manor of Ellingham (q.v.).

        William Parry Okeden, Esq., of Turnworth, Dorsetshire, is the representative of that branch of the Uvedale family, being descended from Elizabeth, sole daughter and heiress of George Uvedale, who married,. in 1598, William Okeden, Esq.(See pedigree.)

        Like Ellingham(q.v.) the Punchardon moiety of Harbridge passed to the Okedens, (fn. 33) and in 1604 William Okeden sold it to Thomas Worsley,(fn.34) who died seised in 1620,(fn.35)
        ...At his death in 1558, Henry having predeceased him, John Okeden left the manor to his grandson William son and heir of his son Philip. (fn.50) In 1604 William Okeden son of the last-named William sold the manors of North Ashley and Somerley to Sir William Dodington of Breamore, (fn. 51)

        In 1598 Philip Okeden diedseised, as tenant in chief, of the manor of North Ashley and Penn, which may perhaps be identified with Somerley. William Okeden junior was his nephew(? grandson) and heir (Chan. Inq. p.m.[Ser. 2], cclii, 50).
