    Heir of father, and of Westenhanger.
    ---

    ---
    The ancient name [of Westenhanger] as it appears by the register of the monastery of St. Augustine was Le Hangre derived from the Saxon word "angra" meaning a wood. When the estate was later divided, the two parts were called Ostenhanger and Westenhanger until they became re-united under Sir Edward Poynings in 1509. The property in the 12th century belonged to the Auberville family who were descended from Willam de Ogburville mentioned in the Doomsday Book, a knight who came over with William the Conqueror.
    -
    Through marriage Westenhanger Castle passed into the de Criol family and Sir John de Criol was allowed in 1343 to crenellate (embattle and make loop-holes) and two years later obtained a licence to found and endow a chantry in the Chapel of St. John in Westenhanger.
