Winterborne St Martin
Lordship of the Manor..?

I must emphasise that in relating this story, I have no wish to offend the current Lord; Gerald Duke.

I have recently discovered that I may have a direct line of descsnt, on my mother’s side, from an early Lord of the Manor, Hawise de Lincoln. In 1232 she inherited the position from her brother, Renulf de Blondville, who died in 1217. He died in 1217, the first Earl of Lincoln and 6th Earl of Chester. He had been the Lord of the Manor of Winterborne St Martin. Hawise was reputedly a wealthy lady due to her property holdings. The father of Hawise and Ranulf was Hugh de Kevelioc.

My mother was originally Miss Bostock, from a family of middle level Knights in the north and mid Cheshire; there is much information on this family on the Web. My mother’s ancestor was Sir Warin de Bostoke (or Bostock). He married, in 1220, Hawise the Countess of Lincoln who lived from 1180 to 1243. Before her 2nd marriage she was the widow of Robert de Quincy.
The de Lincoln family had connections to the Earls of Chester, a position now held by the Prince of Wales. They also had Royal connections and with Simon de Montfort. The Lordship of Winterborne began with Alured de Lincoln and remained with his family until 1264. Other connections of the de Lincoln family include Lady Godiva, the Earls Marshal and President Lincoln of USA. A much more recent Lord of the Manor was Lord Alington who shared with King Edward VII, the services of Alice Keppel - who was mistress to both of them! This assumes that he was Humphrey Sturt, the 2nd Baron.

Do these relationships suggest that, perhaps, my eligibility for the Lordship of the Manor of Winterborne St Martin should be considered?

Waste Watch Scheme
- operating in the village.

Although papers can be separated and recycled with the bi-weekly refuse collection this scheme means that the local parish can financially benefit from separate treatment of newspapers.

There are two collection points each located at the Parish Office and the car park of the Village Hall by means of a green bin or box.

Your used newspapers and magazines can be bundled into manageable piles and securely tied with sturdy string. Newspapers and magazines should be bundled separately but can be placed in the same boxes and are regularly collected.

Please use this method of recycling where possible as credit is received via the current scheme to the parish for use towards local matters.
