The barony was granted as a reward for his support of William the Conqueror in the invasion of England. Sir Ranulph is followed by his son Sir William who had also fought at Hastings and had been granted over 100 lordships in his own right. When Sir William dies all his lordships in then eastern counties escheat to the Crown including Sudbury. In 1141 King Stephen grants Sudbury to Geoffrey de Mandeville, Earl of Essex. With King Stephen's defeat at Lincoln Geoffrey acknowledges Empress Maud as his sovereign. She confirms his constableship of the Tower of London, which he should have inherited but had not. He is also appointed High Sheriff of Essex, Hertfordshire, Middlesex and London. Geoffrey plays King Stephen and Empress Maud off against each other in order to increase his wealth. King Stephen arrests him and threatens to have him executed. He is forced to surrender Pleshey and Saffron Walden Castles and the Tower of London. As a result he launches a rebellion against King Stephen. He becomes a bandit in the fen country, using the Isle of Ely and Ramsey Abbey as his base. He is besieged by King Stephen and is wounded by an arrow in a skirmish. His son Ernulf is disinherited for supporting his father's revolt and Sudbury reverts to the Crown. Part of Sudbury is granted to William de Longspree (illigitimate son of King Henry), the other part to Isaac (son of Josce, the Rabbi) a prominent Jew and his sons. In 1189 after anti-Semitic riots Isaac's portion returns to the Crown. It is then granted to Henry de Cornhill.

Lordship Title of Ashwells

History from: 1234

History to: 1643

Of interest…

The first lord of Ashwells is an example of how many surnames originated. He was Stephen de Eswelle which is written in French due to the strong influence of the Normans. In English this is Stephen of Ashwell so his surname derives from where he lives. In 1250 it is recorded that Stephen does not pay his rent in money but by the supply of a sparrow hawk. This was also common during the early centuries after the Norman Conquest. In the sixteenth century we also have another common occurrence where two family members dispute who is the true owner of Ashwells. Today if chains of ownership had survived this would represent a very costly legal battle. Luckily there is no surviving chain of ownership and we are able to now offer this interesting title for sale.
