?Sir John Donne, later of Horsenden, Sheriff of Buckinghamshire (d 1503, diplomat, soldier).?
About the year 1210, Horsendon manor was purchased by the Braybrokes, and was afterwards successively in the families of Leynham and Moreton: Cardinal Moreton's nephew sold it to the family of Donne, from whom it passed by female heirs to the Cottons and Denhams. In the civil war of the 17th century, being then the property of Sir John Denham, the manor-house was garrisoned for the king
John Brecknock being possessed of both manors in Sanderton, Bucks, sold them, in the year 1474, to Sir John Leynham, of whose widow they were purchased in 1481 by bishop Moreton, afterwards archbishop of Canterbury, Lord Chancellor and Cardinal. His heir, Thomas Moreton, sold them, in 1508, to Edward Donne esq. of whose family they were puchased in 1592.
Sir John Donne acquired the Horsenden estates in 1480.
