Here is a list of all the medieval references that we have found for Nicholas Poyntz, the second Baron Poyntz of Curry Mallet. From Burke's Peerage, Nicholas married twice, firstly to Elizabeth, daughter of Eudes la Zouche. His second wife, Matilda (or Maud) de Acton held Sutton Poyntz for a number of years until 1361, as part of her dower after Nicholas's death in 1311. Her second husband was Sir Roger de Chaundos, a Herefordshire landowner. Matilda was an heiress in her own right, and Nicholas Poyntz's son by her, John, inherited from her the manor of Iron Acton and other lands in Gloucestershire. The main lines of the Poyntz family extant now are descended from John.

Nicholas inherited his Poyntz lands on his father's death in 1308, but died himself three years later in 1311. His oldest son, Hugh. was still a minor, but inherited the Poyntz lands when he reached 21 in about 1313.

References to Nicholas Poyntz are listed here in date order. Actual quotes are in italics.

Volume 5, Page 205, Entry 79
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 looks like the recording of a marriage settlement.

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

It is likely, but not clear without looking at the original entry, that this entry only referred to parts of Culliford Tree Hundred, not the whole.
