  • ID: I8948
  • Name: Robert Aguillon
  • Sex: M
  • Death: 15 FEB 1286
  • Residence: Watton At Stone, Hertfordshire
  • Note:

    Robert de Aguillon [and ...] had four daughters, one of whom, Ela, married Thomas de Ponings and had a son Luke.
    Patricia Junkin wrote:
    Sir Philip de la Beche b. 1250 d. 1329 married Lady Joan de la Zouche [have not established her parentage]. Their son, Robert, m. Idone Frethnei, sister to Margery who m. Robert de Aguillon.
    Treasury of Receipt: Ancient Deeds, Series A Grant by Robert de Beche and Idonea his wife, daughter of William de Frethnei, to the nuns of St. mary of Wikes, in frank almoin, of all the land that William de Frethnei assarted in Swineland and a tenement in the same place. Witnesses:- Robert de Aguillon.
    That's interesting, although I think there must be something wrong with the dates you give for Sir Philip. Idonea was involved in a law suit in 1239 - I wonder if these dates could belong to a different Philip?
    "The ancient manor of Nutburn lies at the east end of Pulborough Parish also in West Chlington---occurs in Domesday possessed by Earl Roger under Nordborne and descended through Hugh de Albini and from him to Robert Tatteshall; owned next by la Zouche and Seznt Cleres who held manors under Earls of Arundel....
    Alan la Zouche had free warren in Nutborne, 48 Hen III (1264)and from the Testa de Nevel .... Alan la Zouche held one fee in Nutborn of the Honor of Arundel. In the Inquisition held on the death of William la Zouche of Mortimer, it is stated that the Manor was held of Isabella, Queen of England as of the honor of Mohunt/Mahant by the service of the knights fee. In the 9th year of Hen IV, (1408) Philip St. Clere appears to have held the manor...A History of the Castles, Mansions and Manors of West Sussex by Dudley George Cary Elwes.
    I'm not quite sure whether this is the same manor that the Aguillons held, which according to the Victoria County History (vol.4, p.128) was in Westbourne parish. I made some brief notes yesterday on the Aguillons, who according to VCH occur in connection with this manor from 1180 down to the early 14th century.
    Paget beings his account with a Robert "Aculeus (or Aguillon)" , Lord of Marden and Nutbourne at the time of Domesday. This is a bit puzzling, as VCH says the first of the family on record is Manasser Aguillon, in the time of Henry I. Keats-Rohan (Domesday People I, p.395) gives only a Roger Aculeus (whose byname also appears as French Aiguillon [sic]), a Domesday tenant in Devon, together with occurrences of Osmund, Richard, Roger and Landric Aculeus in Normandy.
    Anyhow, Paget traces the descent of Nutbourne and marden in a rather odd manor [manner!], to Manasser, who he says is the common ancestor of the two 13th-century Robert Aguillons, and who he says is the son and heir of "Robert Aculeus".
    Then he says Nutbourne and Marden passed to Manasser's 2nd son Manasser, then to the latter Manasser's 2nd son Robert. he says Robert presumably died without issue, as Nutbourne passed to his nephew Richard (son of Robert's elder brother William). Then to Richard's son William, then to William's son Richard, and finally to Richard's granddaughter who died sp in 1312.
    Finally, he says it passed to the heirs of William's 3 sisters (that is, the sisters of the final heiress' great grandfather).
    VCH also gives an account of the descent of Nutbourne, which is not at all committal about relationships, and indeed some of the evidence doesn't look entirely compatible with what Paget says. VCH finishes off by saying that it was discovered that the 3 sisters had a brother John who had left issue, to whom the inheritance went, so on that point VCH seems to be better informed than Paget.
