  • Note:

    At the time of the Domesday Survey, the manor of Bicton, Devon, was held in demesne by William Portitor, (the king's door-keeper,) by the service, according to Risdon, of keeping the county gaol; by which tenure it continued to be held until the year 1787, when, from the parliamentary influence of his present lordship, and the payment of a stipulated sum, the lord of Bicton was exempted from that onerous burthen under the provisions of an act for erecting the new county gaol at Exeter.
    Henry the First gave the manor to John, surnamed Janitor, from his office as connected with the above tenure, and his posterity continued owners for three generations; but in 1229, Bicton was the property and residence of Ralph Balistarius, or Le Balister, (the cross-bow bearer,) from whose descendants, named Alabaster, it passed, after five generations, by successive heiresses, to the families of Sacheville, or Sackville and Coplestone. From the latter, this manor was purchased, in queen Elizabeth's reign, by Sir Robert Dennis [qv].
