  • Note: 2

    In 1066 THAKEHAM in Sussex was held by Brixi, probably the Kentish noble Brixi cild ; by 1086 it had passed to William de Braose. The overlordship descended with Bramber barony until 1361 or later. ( Footnote 38 ) In 1086 Morin, perhaps Morin of St. André, held 5 hides in Thakeham of William de Braose, and a knight held 1 hide of Morin.( Footnote 39 )
    Morin's estate seems to have descended to the Power (le Poer) family.
    Ranulf Power was mentioned 1141 X 1163, (Footnote 40 ) and may be the Reynold of 'Felkham' who obtained seisin in 1175 or 1176. ( Footnote 41 )
    A David Power died in or before 1208 leaving as heir Stephen, then a minor.
    Stephen [Power] was disputing ? knight's fee in Thakeham with Robert le Savage in 1213, and obtained seisin of David's land in Thakeham in 1218.( Footnote 42 ) In the same year he agreed with Robert le Savage to hold the estate, assessed at 4 knight's fees, from Robert as he had previously held it of Reynold de Braose. ( Footnote 43 ) The mesne lordship thus established descended with Robert's manor of Broadwater until 1606. ( Footnote 44 )
    Stephen or a namesake was still undertenant in 1242, (Footnote 45) and successive Stephens held the manor apparently until 1357 or later. ( Footnote 46 )
    Nevertheless Isabel, widow or mother of the last Stephen, allegedly held the manor, presumably in dower, in 1355-6. She was still alive in 1362. It later passed to her daughters Margaret and Joan; they married respectively Stephen or John Apsley and John Clothall. Stephen Apsley and John Clothall had partitioned the manor by 1377.
