CHAPTER TWO

RICHARDS CASTLE INQUISITIONS

The Inquisition returns were usually the result of inquiries conducted by the sheriff on behalf of the crown. The purpose was almost always to determine the taxes due to the government. Inquests were either general or particular. A general inquest was taken across the entire country with every landholder obligated to make a return. A particular inquest was usually concerned with inheritance taxes due from the heir to a landed estate.

Fourteen inquests concerning the lands of Richards Castle have been found. The earliest is dated 1210 and the latest 1308. There are few surviving records in England from the period before 1200. After 1304 the Honour of Richards Castle was increasingly divided into fragments and the history of these parts has not been followed in any detail.

Between 1210 and 1308 there were at least 14 inquisitions. Seven were concerned with establishing the landholdings of deceased tenants of the crown for the purposes of inheritance and tax. Two were special taxes granted by Parliament to the king, one to provide a dowry for a daughter of the king, and the other to provide funds for a war in Gascony in France. Another seems to have been solely to compile a list of taxpayers in the country, and others appear to be fragments of inquisitions where the purposes are not obvious.

The list of inquisitions given here is:-

1210-12 An inquistion which concerns Robert de Mortimer. Mortimer had married Margery de Say, heiress of Richards Castle, and had died in 1209. The information is partial.

1211-1212 This inquistion is known as the Great Inquest of Service. The government wanted an uptodate list of taxpayers and their obligations to pay tax.

1219 This appears to be a further inquest concerning Robert de Mortimer. Margery de Say had married, or was about to marry, William de Stuteville. Stuteville was entitled to full control and profits from the lands of Richards Castle. It is possible that the Treasury was separating Mortimer's own lands from those of Richards Castle.

1230 An inquisition return, or fragment of this, possibly made post-mortem, concerns three tenants of the Honour of Richards Castle.

1235 This was concerned with the collection of an Aid for the marriage of the king's daughter.

1240 An inquisition return, or fragment of this, possibly made post-mortem, concerns seven tenants of the Honour of Richards Castle.

1242 The government was funding the war in Gascony by a general taxation called Scutage.

1243 This appears to be a supplementary inquisition. Possibly the earlier return was unsatisfactory in some details.

1255 An inquisition return, or fragment of this, possibly made post-mortem, concerns four tenants of the Honour of Richards Castle. It seems to relate to the death of Margery de Say, the heiress of the Honour. Her husband, William de Stuteville, was permitted to retain his control of the lands of the Honour until his death, by a right called the Courtesy of England. If a man held land solely in his wife's right, and they had offspring, he could continue as landholder, but on his death the land reverted to the legitimate heirs. In this case Hugh de Mortimer, as his mother's heir, was kept out of his inheritance until the death of Stuteville in 1260. Stuteville appears to have provided adequately for Mortimer in the intervening period.

1260 This inquisition was concerned solely with the lands of Richards Castle and was taken after the death of William de Stuteville.

1275 This inquisition was concerned solely with the lands of Richards Castle and was taken after the death of Hugh de Mortimer.

1287 This inquisition was concerned solely with the lands of Richards Castle and was taken after the death of Robert de Mortimer.

1308 This inquisition was concerned solely with the fragment of the lands of Richards Castle held by Joan de Mortimer and her husband de Bikenore. It was taken after the death of Bikenore, when Joan, as a widow of marriageable age, could be offered in marriage to the profit of the crown.

1330 The lords of Richards Castle held two manors of Thomas Bardulf and these appear on the inquisition return made after his decease.

The requisitions are valuable in that they provide lists of the lands held by the Honour of Richards Castle, and in many cases state who is actually holding these lands. The holders of these lands rendered services to the lord of the Honour. These services were usually military but payment in lieu of service was not uncommon. There may also have been an annual rent payable to the lord but this is not specifically stated, and may have been commonly understood.

The abbreviation 1KF means one knights fee. A knights fee was usually reckoned to be 5 hides or 600 acres, and to be worth 20 pounds per annum. The holder of a 1/4KF may have held 150 acres, and this land was nominally worth five pounds per annum. All computations were approximate only, and might not reflect the true situation.

The services of Robert de Clifton, who is entered here as one of the tenants of W de Stuteville were, in 1243, transferred by him to Hugh de Mortemer. Hugh de Mortemer of Wigmore died in 1227 and was succeeded by his brother Ralph who died in 1246. The Hugh de Mortemer referred to above was therefore Hugh de Mortemer of Richards Castle, and the transfer resulted in no change to the fees of Richards Castle.

In 1236 the Aid in Worcestershire was paid by Stephen fitzIsnard of Elmbridge who, in 1220, contributed to the carucage in respect of Coleshill in Berkshire. In 1242 he is represented in Worcestershire by Isnard fitzStephen who also held Coleshill, Berkshire, under W. de Stuteville.
