Name: Joan Osgodby
Change Date: 29 AUG 2012
Joan was not an heiress it would seem:
In 1204 the manor of OSGODBY was held in demesne by Jordan de Hameldon, otherwise known as Jordan of Osgodby. By 1223 it had passed to Jordan's daughter Denise, who married Sampson de la Pomeray, and it subsequently passed to Adam of Osgodby. In 1284-5 Robert of Osgodby held the manor and he was followed by his son, another Robert. Its ownership was subsequently in dispute and a settlement was reached only in 1460, in favour of Thomas Babthorpe.
The Babthorpes claimed that Robert of Osgodby the younger had two daughters, Emme, who married John Rabace, and Cecily, who married Hugh Turnyll, and that Hugh's son Ralph conveyed the manor to William Kettering. From Kettering it passed to the Babthorpes, apparently about 1440. The rival claim of the Hagthorpe family was that the manor passed to them by the marriage of Robert of Osgodby's sister to Thomas Hagthorpe.
The Babthorpes retained Osgodby until 1622, when Sir William Babthorpe sold it to Sir Guy Palmes.
