    Stogursey castle was presumably in 1166 the caput of the honor, including more than 27 knights' fees, of William (III) de Curci, lord of Stogursey. (Footnote 7) On William's death in 1171 the honor passed to his infant son William (IV) who took possession in 1189 and died without issue in 1194. (Footnote 8) His sister and heir Alice had married Warin FitzGerold, who forfeited the honor before his death in 1216. (Footnote 9) In that year the Crown ordered the destruction of the castle, (Footnote 10) which therefore may have been excluded from the grant of Stogursey manor(Footnote 11) in the same year to Fawkes de Breauté, husband of Margaret, Alice's daughter by Warin. Fawkes's rebellion led to the siege of the castle, which in 1224 the constable was ordered to deliver to the sheriff. (Footnote 12) Half the honor, including Stogursey, was claimed for Joan, Alice's daughter by Henry of Cornhill.
