Confusingly there is a hamlet called Knighton in Beer-Hackett parish, Dorset.
John Gilbert married Joan, daughter of John Hackett, and thereby gained the manor of Knighton Gorges and other large estates in Hampshire.
In 1462 Sir Theobald Gorges was in possession of Knighton, Isle of Wight and probably died without issue as the manor of Knighton reverted back via the Russell family to John Haket(d.1498), 1st cousin & heir of Thomas Russell(d.1431) son of Sir Maurice Russell(d.1416)
Knighton Gorges was then passed on to the Hacket family of Wolverton in Bembridge. John Hacket, (who was Sir John Gilbert of Whitecombe in Somerset) married Joan Gilbert, who passed away in the year 1502. John was buried in Quarr Abbey in 1563.
Part of the manor of Wolverton, IoW, passed with the manor of Brook to John Roucle or Rookley, and in 1431 the estate was held jointly by him and John Haket, to whom Mortaine's holding had reverted before 1428. John Haket was said to be in sole possession of the manor in 1438, and it passed with a moiety of Brook to his daughter Joan wife of John Gilbert.
