    William Babthorpe, of Osgodby, Yorkshire, younger brother of Sir Ralph Babthorpe, of Babthorpe.
    The demesne lords of BABTHORPE manor were a family taking their name from the township. The first member is thought to have been Ralph of Babthorpe (fl. c. 1190), who had earlier been known as Ralph of Hunsley. (fn. 34) The Babthorpes enjoyed unbroken ownership until the death of Sir Ralph Babthorpe in 1490; his daughter Isabel had married Sir John Hastings [brother of Bryan Hastings and Anne Portington, qv] who was in possession of the manor in 1492. Hastings died in 1504 and the estate passed to Isabel's cousin, another Isabel, wife of William Plumpton. At Isabel and William's marriage in 1496, however, it had been agreed that the manor should be assigned to William Babthorpe of Osgodby. Disputes over its ownership were not finally settled, in the Babthorpes' favour, until 1565.
    William Babthorpe (d. 1501) arranged his niece's marriage, securing to himself and his heirs the entail of Babthorpe and other family lands in Yorkshire and Lincolnshire, but the Plumptons dishonored the agreement and laid claim to those exempted estates, which resulted in a 60-year ongoing feud between the two families.
