    ---
    The manor of Toft appears to have come into the sole possession of John Meppershall, whose heir was his daughter Joan, who married John Butler.
    Their son John Butler died seised of the manor in 1482. His elder daughter Joan received Toft as part of her share of the inheritance. She married first John Leventhorpe and secondly John Stamford. After Joan's death in 1489 Stamford held the manor until his own death in 1493 when Thomas Leventhorpe, son of Joan and John Leventhorpe, succeeded.
