Name: Thomas Ringwood
Residence: Cridlestyle, Fordingbridge, Hants
Change Date: 18 FEB 2013
The so-called manor of CRIDLESTYLE or EAST MILL (Cridelestrowe, Credelstowe, Estmylne, xiv cent.), held of the lord of the manor of Nether Burgate, belonged in the 14th century to John de Breamore, who settled it on himself and his wife Geva, with reversion to his son John and Joan his wife and their heirs.
Eventually in 1377 the manor passed to Joan daughter of the younger John by his second wife Margaret and wife of William Bayford or Byford. She settled her property on her second husband Thomas Chapeleyn in 1401, and on his death in 1415 it passed to her daughters by her first husband: Joan wife of Thomas Ringwood and Amelia Clemence wife of Richard Devereux. The latter, however, either died childless or gave up her claim, since Thomas Ringwood, apparently son of the above Thomas, died seised of Cridlestyle in 1474?5, leaving a son of the same name, who was succeeded in the following year by his son Charles. The latter was succeeded in turn by his son John, his grandson Charles and his great-grandson Henry, who, after holding Cridlestyle for over forty years, sold it about 1592 to William Dodington.
Thomas Woodlock, who obtained Sherfield English, Hants, after the death of his mother Eleanor, apparently left no issue, for in 1428 the Manor was in possession of Thomas Ringwood, as husband of Joan Bayford, a distant kinswoman, and heir of Thomas Woodlock.
