Name: John Atwood

Eycot, an ancient manor along the river Churn in the county of Gloucester, belonged to Thomas Burton who died in 1375 leaving his estate to his son Thomas, a minor.
In 1385 John Atwood claimed the manor was his because of a grant made by John Russel to his ancestors Robert and Margery Crook in the reign of Edward II. John Atwood was awarded seisen (ownership under rightful title) from Burton. The following year the land was granted to John Pouger who died in 1405. In 1410 his son John settled an ownership dispute with John Warre, nephew and heir of the younger Thomas of Burton. The land returned to the Burton heirs. By 1421 the land was in the possession of the Abbey at Winchcombe. Warre's sister Catherine and another Burton heir, Robert Andrew challenged the Abbey who had to settle with them for ownership. It appears this John Warre was possibly a son of Richard Warre and Joan Atwood.
