Lordship Title of Woolhampton ID14183

Title Type:
Previous Lords:
The manor of WOOLHAMPTON belonged to Godric the Sheriff in the time of Edward the Confessor, and in 1086 was in the possession of Henry Ferrers, whose descendants held it in demesne or overlordship until 1266. When Robert Ferrers, sixth Earl of Derby, forfeited his lands for rebellion in that year, the overlordship of Woolhampton seems to have been granted with his other possessions to Edmund Earl of Lancaster, whose grandson Henry Earl of Derby and Duke of Lancaster died seised of it in 1361. There is apparently no further mention of the overlordship, which must have passed to the Crown on the accession of Henry Duke of Lancaster to the throne as Henry IV.
