    The father of Elizabeth, wife of John Gunter is given as Walter in Manning & Bray.
    Utworth Farm, the old manor house, is about 1 1/4 mile SW of Cranley.
    Given as Richard in the Visitation.
    UTWORTH Manor, which extends into Wonersh and Dunsfold parishes, (fn. 56) was held of Bramley. In 1234 John de Fay, lord of Bramley, granted the Abbess of Fontevraud 2 marks rent from Utworth in exchange for an annuity due to her. Other rents were due from the manor to Beatrice, mother of John de Fay. Roger de Clare confirmed the grant of a rent from Walter of Utworth to the Abbess of Wherwell towards the support of a chaplain in the chapel of the Garden of St. Mary.
    Walter son of Elias of Utworth laid claim to Chilworth Church in 1224, and was probably the Walter of Utworth who conveyed the manor to his son Thomas in return for a life annuity in 1247?8. There is a late 13th-century agreement between Edmund and Lawrence of Utworth as to land in Bramley.
    They seem to have been succeeded by Thomas of Utworth, who witnessed many charters at Cranleigh.
    In 1394?5 Walter Utworth witnessed a grant to John Redinghurst.
    William Utworth was living in 1462. In 1580 William Morgan, who is said to have been a descendant of William Utworth's granddaughter Catherine, held the manor, which he settled on his son John, afterwards Sir John Morgan.Page: Gunter
