John Wiveliscombe, John Orchard, and Richard Clopton, holders of the rest of the fee of Huntspill Verney Manor in 1408, traced their ownership from the death in 1361 of Cecily, widow of Stephen Laundy and probably a daughter of Joan Trivet.
The share of John Orchard passed on the death of Robert Orchard in 1413 to William Orchard; and through the marriage of Christian Orchard came to Philip Cary. It was granted in 1554 after the death of her husband Sir John Cary (d. 1552) to his widow Joyce, to be held for her son Wymond, a minor.
Thomas de Orchard II. married in or before 1364, Alice, daughter of Stephen Laundey and Cicely his wife. An Inquisition was taken at Taunton, 10 May 1365, after the death of 'Cicely, late the wife of Stephen Laundey '.
