  • Note:

    By 1279 the Thorntons' heiress Mary had brought that manor, then apparently without demesne in Fordham, to her husband, Humphrey of Bassingbourn. In 1298 the widowed Mary settled on her younger son Matthew property at Fordham, including a water mill and 20 a. of resumed tenant land, once Maud de Kemesek's. The whole was called from c. 1400 BASSINGBOURNS manor.
    Matthew of Bassingbourn, twice sheriff of Cambridgeshire and knighted by 1329, died c. 1334?5, having in 1324 settled over 280 a. in and around Fordham on his son and heir John's marriage.
    John, who in 1344 settled over 220 a. of his lands there in reversion upon his son Richard, died, by then a knight, after 1348. Sir Richard Bassingbourn (kt. by 1370) had at Fordham c. 168 a. of demesne arable, probably into the early 1380s. The manor presumably passed to his son, the impoverished Robert Bassingbourn (fl. from 1374, d. 1391), after whose death half came to his sister Joan and her husband Walter Reynell, in possession in 1412.
