A WARWICKSHIRE WILL.
'THIS will is mentioned by Dugdale ('War- wickshire,' p. 683), who gives a few items.
'The MS. from which this copy was made is in the possession of Mr. Ronald Holbech of Farnborough Hall, Banbury, Lord of the Manor of Fenny Compton, part of the lands
(inherited by Margery, daughter of Beaufitz. Another Farnborough deed shows that in 1530, Margery, then widow of Robert Bellyngham, granted the manor to Ric. Wyllys, gent., and Joan his wife. Some of the Willis family emigrated to America in
'the seventeenth century (Rib ton-Turner, ' Shakespeare's Land,' p. 293). The Prior of St. John's leased to Beaufitz the lands of
'the Hospitallers at Fletchamstead by the " indenture of St. John's " mentioned in the will ; he also farmed their preceptory or commandery of Temple Balsall. After Beaufitz' s death Bellingham seems to have taken over his father-in-law's lease ; at all
events there was difficulty in ejecting- him
when the Grand Prior of the order wished to install Robert Turockmorton, another tenant, and a writ was served on Bellingham in Erdington Church ( ' Victoria County Hist. Warw.,' ii. 101). Ralph, Lord Boitiler of Sudeley (Dugdale, 37), mentioned in the will, was standard-bearer of Henry VT. and Lord Treasurer of England ; his wife was Alice Deincourt (ib., 669).
