    A John Loreng was holding land in Stapleford in 1295, (fn. 62) but the manor later known as Gobions appears shortly afterwards to have been acquired by Henry Gobion, who was holding half a knight's fee in Stapleford in 1303. (fn. 63) There was also an Anselm Gobion holding part of a fee there at the same date. (fn. 64) This family held the manor for over a century and gave it its name, but very few records of them exist. The manor appears to have come to William Gobion, whose son William was holding it in 1389.

    The earliest known tenant in fee of the manor of Gobions in Stapleford, Herts, is William Loreng, who was holding half a hide of land in Stapleford of Baldwin Wake in 1282. A John Loreng was holding land in Stapleford in 1295, but the manor appears shortly afterwards to have been acquired by Henry Gobion, who was holding half a knight's fee in Stapleford in 1303. There was also an Anselm Gobion holding part of a fee there at the same date. This family held the manor for over a century and gave it its name, but very few records of them exist. The manor appears to have come to William Gobion, whose son William was holding it in 1389. He was then in financial difficulties and had to raise money on his manor of Stapleford. In 1390 he conveyed the manor to Simon de Burgh and William Ashwell.
