  • Note: 1

    Dunning does no explicitly say that Ralph was the son of William:
    ---
    The occupiers of the later [ie after the Bluets, with whom the de Yeoviltons seem to have no connection] manor of Yeovilton, begin with Hugh, son of Richard, who held a fee there from 1179 at least until 1183. He may have been the ancestor of the Yeovilton Family, a Hugh of Yeovilton having granted some meadow there to the canons of Bruton, early 13th century.
    Hugh's grandson William held the property by 1251.
    William died c.1280 and was succeeded by his son, also William. In 1284-5, the holding at Yeovilton was assessed at 2 fees, of which William of Yeovilton held three parts; by 1303, the assessment was only 1 fee, of which William of Yeovilton held three quarters.
