Here is a list of all the medieval references that we have found for Hugh Poyntz, the 1st Baron Poyntz of Curry Mallet. He inherited the family lands on the death of his father Nicholas in 1273, and acquired some additional lands during his life. At his death in 1308, he held lands in Glucestershire, Somerset, Dorset (including Sutton Poyntz), Kent and Cambridgeshire, which were inherited by his oldest son, Nicholas. According to Burke's Peerage, Hugh married Margaret, daughter of Sir William Paveley. He became a Baron on being summoned to Parliament.

The references are listed in date order. Actual quotes are in italics.

1287/8 At Westminster, in the octaves of St Hillary, between Hugh Poyntz, plaintiff, and Milentsa who was the wife of Eudo la Zuche, tenent, of a messuage and land in Stokes St Edwald and the advowson of the Chapel. Hugh acknowledged the tenement and advowson to be the right of Milentsa and remitted it for himself and his heirs to Milentsa and her heirs for ever. For this, Milentsa at the instance of Hugh granted the tenement and advowson to Nicholas Poyntz and Elizabeth his wife. To have and to hold to them and the heirs Nicholas should beget by Elizabeth, of the chief lords of that fee by the services which to the tenement and advowson belong, for ever. Should they die and in default of such heirs, the tenement and advowson whollt will remain to the right heirs of Nicholas. To hold of the chief lords of that fee by the services which belong to the tenement and advowson for ever. Moreover Milentsa granted for herself and her heirs that they would warrant the tenement and advowson to Nicholas and Elizabeth and the heirs of the body of Elizabeth against all men for ever. The effect of this is to transfer a house and some land at Stockwood (Stoke St Edwald), along with the advowson of Stockwood's church, to Nicholas Poyntz and his wife Elizabeth, and their heirs. The property was previously owned by Nicholas's father Hugh. Eudo (deceased) and Milentsa (Millicent) la Zouche were Elizabeth's parents. This almost certainly records a marriage settlement.

Nicholas Poyntz was no more than about 10 years old when this happened
