Lordship Title of Donnington ID14259

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
The king held the manor of Deritone, which may probably be identified as the later DONNINGTON, at the time of the Domesday Survey, and seems to have attached it at a later date to the honour of Wallingford, of which it was held in the 13th century. With this honour it passed to Edmund Earl of Cornwall, who died seised of rents here, with pleas of court and view of frankpledge, in 1300, when it passed to the Crown. The overlordship was held by the king as parcel of his duchy of Cornwall in 1334–5.
