An heiress, Joan, (youngest) of the three daughters of John Hampton, and widow of Thomas Choke the Elder (d 2 August 1487). Joan married as her third husband Sir Edmund Gorges of Wraxall* [d 1511] and died 21 August 1506.
* Edmund Gorges was son of Walter, the son of Theobald G and Joan Hankford (qv).
In 1403 Walter Catcott was tenant of the Romsey fee [of the manor of Catcott]. Walter died in 1405 when his heir was his daughter Alice, wife of William Hampton. (fn. 38) Philip Hampton had an interest in the former Trivet fee in 1412, and in 1429 Philip and his wife Alice settled what was called Catcott manor on Elizabeth, evidently Alice's daughter, and on her husband William Viel. Philip was the ancestor, possibly great-grandfather, of Lucy (d. 1504) and Joan (d. 1506), coheiresses of the Hampton family. Joan's heir was her son (Sir) Thomas Newton, although her surviving husband Sir Edmund Gorges held the manor by curtesy until his own death in 1511.
Sir Thomas Newton, married Lucy, d. and co-heir of John Hampton, and so obtained Richmont, a ruined castle, and Barre's Court in Harptree.
John Bitton of (the manor later known as) Barr?s Court had a daughter Elizabeth who married a Hampton, and ?Memoirs illustrative of the history and antiquities of Bristol? seems to suggest thatThoams Newton?s Hampton wife was her descendant. My line does not show this.Page: Catcott
