Note: N9365 Bulwick seems to have descended to him from his 7 g grandmother Millicent de Cantilupe de Monte Alto de la Zouche (Inq. taken 27 Edw. I (1299)), who obtained as her pourparty the manors of Haryngsworth and Bulwick, Northants, Totnes, Devon and considerable estates in Beds. Som. and Wilts.
William Zouche of Bulwicke, co. Northants, "frater D'mi Zouche".
At Bulwick a Chantry, founded by Geoffrey Cappe, Henry Duke of Lancaster, John of Gaunt and Lord William Zouche, was dissolved in 1547. The chantry chapel stood in the churchyard and was built in honour of St. Anne and our lady. An old document records that in 1526 W. Zouche Esq., left “to the chantry priests at Bulwich for lying in St. An Chapel xvis and viid. And to the same priests for remembrance of me in their bede roll vis. and viid.”
Is this his will, dated 9 April 1526: William Zouche, the elder, of Bulwick, esq.
