The manor of CHALE has always been held of the lord of Carisbrooke Castle. (fn. 13) In 1086 William son of Stur held the manor, having succeeded the Saxon tenant Chetle. (fn. 14) At the end of the 12th century (fn. 15) Hugh Gernon, probably as lord of the manor, built the church of Chale. Roger de Langford was holding the manor in the 13th century, (fn. 16) possibly as successor of Richard de Langford, who had died c. 1254 holding certain lands in the Isle of Wight. (fn. 17) The younger Roger died in 1309?10, and was succeeded by his grandson John, (fn. 18) who in 1318 settled Chale on himself and his wife Joan, with reversion to his son John. (fn. 19) It was probably the son John who received a grant of free warren in Chale in 1333, (fn. 20) and who died seised of it in 1342, leaving it to his son Thomas. (fn. 21) The latter, who was afterwards knighted, married Joan daughter of Nicholas de la Bere, (fn. 22) who survived him and held the manor until her death in 1393. (fn. 23) It then passed to Sir William Langford, son and heir of Sir Thomas, who was succeeded in 1411 by his son Robert. (fn. 24) The latter seems to have left a son Edward, (fn. 25) whose grandson John died in 1509, leaving an only daughter and heir Anne. (fn. 26) She married a certain William Stafford, (fn. 27) and with him sold the manor to William Pounde.
