The table below contains a list of the direct medieval references that we have found to Sutton Poyntz and Preston. For fuller lists of medieval references to the families that have owned Sutton Poyntz, see the following links:

These lists currently provide references up to about the end of the 15th Century (now extended with Dorset History Centre references to the end of the 17th Century). The entries are in date order, so far as is possible; where we have amalgamated a series of entries, we have placed them at the date of the first entry in the series.

For each reference, we have given: the document and (where relevant) entry number for the reference, with (if possible) a link where you can find the complete document; the date of the reference, the text as an English translation where necessary, and notes to help understand the significance of the reference.

The medieval English state was an impressive record-keeper, and most of the state records from the time exist. Many of them have been transcribed, translated, interpreted and published. Some are freely available on the internet. We have given a short introduction to what information these medieval records provide, but for a better explanation, go to the Guide in Chris Phillips' outstanding Medieval Genealogy website.

[2] Saxon land grant (Sawyer S347) [a] 2 Aug 891 Alfred, king of the Anglo-Saxons, to Berhtwulf, his faithful Count [comes]; grant of 12 hides [manentes] at Plush in Buckland Newton, Dorset, and 2 [? for 5] at Raddington, Somerset, in exchange for equal land at Sutton, Dorset This is the earliest known reference to Sutton Poyntz, and appears to record the moment when Sutton became a Royal Manor. This is certainly Sutton Poyntz - the full description is "land of equal size that the locals call Sutton next the sea shore in the territory called Dorset".
The original document is in Latin, but includes (as was customary) an Old English description of the borders of Plush (e.g. thanen over whetecombe on alden doune op bi wirtrone on an ruwe dich); it does not sadly describe the borders of Sutton.
[1] Domesday Book [b] (Entry 1.4 of Dorset section) 1086 The King holds DORCHESTER, FORDINGTON, SUTTON [Poyntz], GILLINGHAM and `FROME'. King Edward held them. It is not known how many hides are there because they did not pay tax before 1066. Land for 56 ploughs. In lordship 7 ploughs; 20 slaves; 12 freedmen; 114 villagers and 89 smallholders who have 49 ploughs. 12 mills which pay £6 5s; meadow, 160 acres; pasture 2 leagues long and 1 wide; woodland 4 leagues long and 1 league wide. [ 5 cobs; 20 cattle; 72 pigs; 800 sheep; 40 goats. ] This manor with its dependencies pays one night's revenue. Sutton is shown as part of a Royal Manor, both before and after the Conquest. Because it is aggregated with other places, it is not possible to work out the area or value of Sutton Poyntz on its own.
The text in brackets comes from the Exeter Domesday (Liber Exonensis)

Hamo son of Richard gives the king a palfrey for having a writ to summon Hugh Poinz before the justices at Westminster in the octaves of Trinity, concerning two carucates of land with appurtenances in Sutton, into which he has no entry except by the intrusion that he made in the same land after the death of Grecia, who was the wife of Robert son of Hamo, who had the land in dower by the inheritance of Hamo, and which land, after Grecia’s death, ought to descend to him. He has the writ. Order to the sheriff of Dorset to take security from Hamo for rendering this palfrey to the king. Witness as above. Meaning not very clear, but it appears that Hugh Poyntz was obstructing Hamo's access to land in Sutton Poyntz. The only earlier record of Poyntz family interest in Sutton Poyntz is from the Testa de Nevill in 1212. See the note below on the family of Hamo son of Richard

1218/19 At Sireburn, Sunday next after the octave of St Andrew the Apostle, between Hamo, son of Richard, plaintiff, and Hugh Poinz, tenent, of two carucates of land in Sutton. Hugh acknowledged the same to be the right of Hamo. For this, Hamo granted it to Hugh, to have and to hold to Hugh and his heirs from Hamo and his heirs, for ten pounds, to be rendered yearly at the Abbey of Cerne to Hamo and his heirs or their attorney at two terms, namely half at Easter and half at Michaelmas next. For this Hugh gave to Hamo twenty marcs of silver, and will acquit the land against the chief lords for foreign service. If Hugh or his heirs do not observe the aforesaid terms it shall be lawful for Hamo and his heirs to take that land and other land with the issues therefrom which Hugh has in that will, into his hands and to hold it until he shall be satisfied of the arrears. This concord was made in the presence of Margery de Boun, mother of Hamo who agreed to it.

1232 For Ralph son of Nicholas – For 100s. per year, (previously rendered by Robert de Muscegros G., the former earl of Gloucester, as dower of his wife for land in Sutton), the king grants to Ralph son of Nicholas custody of the land and heir of Hugh Poinz that is the inheritance of Nicholas Poinz, son and heir of the said Hugh, and then of Hubert de Burgo, as long as custody of the land and heir is in the hand of the foresaid earl, to hold until the foresaid Nicholas de Poinz is of age, to whom the foresaid 100s. should revert when he is of full age.

Order to the sheriff of Dorset to take into the king’s hand the land that Helewise, who was the wife of Robert de Muscegros, held in dower in Sutton [Poyntz] and to keep it safely until the king orders otherwise. Helewise or Hawise Malet was the daughter and heiress of William Malet, Baron of Curry Malet near Taunton. She married Hugh Poyntz in about 1216, and gave birth to Nicholas Poyntz in 1218. After Hugh's death in about 1220, she married Robert Musgrove (the modern version of Muscegros) by whom she had further children. This presumably relates to Nicholas Poyntz's forthcoming inheritance of his father's lands.

[Some of the original document is damaged, but my attempt at a transcription of the extent given for Sutton Poyntz is as follows: The foresaid manor contains two carucates in lordship, valued at 40s per annum, ?? valued at 20s per annum, and pasture for ?? animals valued at 10s 8d.

This entry, on the death of Nicholas Poyntz in October 1273, lists his son Sir Hugh Poyntz as heir, and shows him as holding the manors of Curry Mallet in Somerset and Sutton Poyntz in Dorset. He had already passed the manors of Hoo in Kent  and Tockington in Gloucester on to his son Hugh.

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.

This entry marks the death of Sir Nicholas Poyntz in July 1311, just 3 years after his father's death. It lists his heir as Hugh Poyntz, his son, and shows him still to be a minor.

The entry shows that Sir Nicholas held the manors of Curry Mallet in Somerset, Hoo and Lullingstone Castle in Kent, Dullingham in Cambridgeshire, Sutton Poyntz with Culliford Tree Hundred, Stockwood and Batcombe in Dorset, and Tockington in Gloucester, as well as other lands in Somerset, Wiltshire and Dorset (including Putton and East Chickerell, Langton Herring, and Broadwey).

Between Hugh Poynz of Corymalet, querent, and Nicholas Poyntz, parson of the church of St Mary de Hoo, and Huygh de Meliplash, parson of the church of Corymalet, deforciants, of the manor of Sutton Poyntz [and the manor of Rockley in Ogbourne St Andrew, Wiltshire]. And afterwards in the octaves of St Hilary, 5 Edward III. Plea of covenant was summoned. Hugh Poynz acknowledged the manors to be the right of Nicholas. For this, the deforciants granted for themselves and the heirs of Nicholas that the manor of Sutton Poyntz which Roger de Chaundos and Matilda his wife held as Matilda's dower of the inheritance of the said Nicholas [and the manor in Wiltshire which John Godhyve held for life] on the day this concord was made and which after the deaths of John and Matilda ought to revert to the deforciants and the heirs of Nicholas, should then wholly remain to Hugh Poynz. To hold of the chief lords of that fee by the services which belong to the said manors, for the life of the said Hugh Poynz, with remainder after his death to Nicholas his son and heirs of his body, to hold as aforesaid; with remainder in default of such heirs to Hugh brother of Nicholas and heirs of his body, to hold as aforesaid; with remainder in default of such heirs to Walter brother of Hugh and heirs of his body, to hold as aforesaid; with remainder in default of such heirs to Henry brother of Walter and heirs of his body, to hold as aforesaid; with remainder in default of such heirs to Thomas brother of Henry and heirs of his body to hold as aforesaid; with remainder in default of such heirs to the right heirs of the aforesaid Hugh Poynz, to hold as aforesaid for ever. The purpose of this entry is to make sure the inheritance of Sutton Poyntz and another manor, after they return to the Poyntz family after the death of Hugh's step-mother Matilda; they are granted to Hugh for life, and then to whichever of Hugh's five sons leaves direct heirs.

The first-mentioned Nicholas Poyntz (parson of Hoo in Kent) is, probably, the younger brother of Hugh. The Nicholas mentioned later is Hugh's oldest son.

Order to remove the king's hand and meddle no further with the manor of Radeweye, a messuage, one carucate of land, 20 acres of meadow and 21s. of rent at Fydoke in Taunton, a toft, one carucate of land and 10 acres of meadow at Dameselem in Staple, delivering up any issues thereof taken; as it is found by inquisition, taken before Richard Virgo late escheator, that John Roges at his death held the premises at Fydoke and Dameselem of others than the king, and that Richard Averay otherwise called Careweye, being son of Maud sister of John Roges father of the deceased, is his cousin and next heir, and of full age; and it is found by another inquisition, of his office taken before the said late escheator, that the deceased hold the said manor in chief by knight service; and upon petition of William Manyel, son of Edmund Manyel, shewing that John Roges the son, by name of John Rokys of Fydoke, gave the said manor, by name of all his lands, moor etc., common of pasture, rents and reversions of all his free and villein tenants in Radeweye, to Philip Gybbe chaplain and John Forde of Taunton, their heirs and assigns, that they by another charter gave the same to the petitioner, his heirs and assigns, that he was a long while in peaceable possession thereof, until unlawfully thrust out by colour of the second inquisition aforesaid, without that that John Roges the son had any estate therein at his death, or that the manor is held in chief as thereby supposed, the king ordered the sheriff of Dorset to give the said Richard notice to be in chancery at a day now past to shew cause wherefore the king ought not to remove his hand and deliver the issues taken of that manor to the petitioner; and the petitioner that day appearing in chancery in person, and the said Richard by John Asplioun his attorney, the petitioner alleged that the said Philip and John Forde were seised of that manor long before the death of John Roges the son, and continued their seisin until they gave the same to him, and that he was thereof seised until thrust out by the late escheator, without that that John Roges at his death had an estate therein or in any parcel thereof, or that it is held in chief, but said further that it is held of Guy de Briene and not in chief; and granting that it is held of the said Guy, the said Richard said that John Roges the son was thereof seised at his death, as he was ready to prove; and William de Hornby suing for the king said that the manor is held in chief, and that John Roges the son was thereof seised at his death; and the parties craving that inquisition should be made by the country, a day was given them at a day past, and it is found by inquisition, taken before the king, that the manor is not held in chief, but at the date of the second inquisition was held of Guy de Bryen knight, now deceased, as of his manor of Sutton Poyntes, and now of Alice Bryen lady of Sutton, and that John Roges the son was thereof seised at his death. An entry showing that Alice Bryen has inherited Sutton Poyntz from her father-in-law, Guy de Bryen.

This entry gives details of how Sutton Poyntz came to Alice. It was granted to Guy the younger and Alice and their heirs male, with remainder to male heirs of Guy senior, or failing that to the heirs of Guy senior. As Guy senior had no male heirs, Elizabeth now inherits as his only granddaughter.

Guy senior seems to have used three clerics to enact this transfer - I believe he used the same three for the manor of Puncknowle. I think the name Dedewith may perhaps be "de Dewlish"

Order to the escheator in the county of Dorset; pursuant to an inquisition taken before him showing that Robert Dedewith, William Plusch and John Moure, clerks, being seised of the manor of Sutton Poyntz, with the hundred of Culifardestre, in their demesne as of fee, gave and granted the said manor and hundred to Guy de Bryene, knight, the younger, and to Alice then his wife, and the heirs male of their bodies, with remainder to Guy de Bryene, father of the said Guy, in tail male, and remainder over to the right heirs of the said Guy the elder, by virtue of which gift the said Guy the younger and Alice were siesed thereof in their demesne as of fee tail; and that the said Guy died so siesed jointly with the said Alice without heir male of his body by Alice; and that the said Guy the father died without heir male of his body; and that afterwards Alice died seised of the said manor and hundred in her demesne as of fee tail by virtue of the said gift, after whose death the said manor and hundred now of right pertain to Elizabeth late the wife of Robert Lovell esquire, (who is of full age), the daughter of Guy the son of the said Guy the father, as the kinswoman and heir of Guy the father, by virtue of the aforesaid remainder; and that the manor and hundred are not held of the king; to cause the said Elizabeth, whose fealty the king has ordered to be taken by the escheator in the county of Suffolk, to have full seisin of the said manor and hundred, as the king for a certain fine paid in the hanaper has respited until a certain day now past [sic] the homage due from her for certain lands in the county of Suffolk which the said Alice held of the king in chief on the day of her death.

[38] Dorset History Centre D/WLC/T 157 16 Oct 1437 16 Edward III. Writ. Cites final concord of 1330 in which Hugh Poyntz of Corymalet (Curry Mallet, Somerset) querent, and Nicholas Poyntz, parson of the Church of the Blessed Mary of Hoo (Kent) and Hugh de Melyplassh, parson of the church of Corymalet, deforciants, agreed concerning the manor of Rocklegh in Wiltshire (held by John Godhyve ? for his life), and the manor of Sutton Poyntz, (held by Roger de Chaundos and wife Matilda as her dowry from said Nicholas). Remainder to Hugh's sons Nicholas, Hugh, Walter, Henry, Thomas. Writ states that Matilda and Hugh Poyntz are now dead, also their son Nicholas, and that certain men called Richd. Neuton, Robt. Caundyssh, Robt. Corf, clerk, Peter Dormun (?), clerk, and William Ketyll now hold the manor. They are to appear at Westminster to state why John Neuburg senior, kin and heir of Nicholas Poyntz, should not have the manor of Sutton Poyntz The Dorset History Centre index dates this to 1342 (16 Edw III), but this date does not make sense in the context (Nicholas Poyntz had not died, and John Newburgh junior had not yet been born). The description of John Newburgh as "senior" makes it is almost certain that this dates to 1437 (16 Hen VI). The document itself is not clear.

This references the agreement dated 1330 (see above), whereby the manors of Sutton Poyntz and Rockley in Wiltshire are granted eventually to the next heir of Hugh Poyntz. At this stage, Hugh and his son Nicholas have both died. The writ concludes that the manor of Sutton Poyntz should therefore go to Nicholas's grandson John Newburgh.

Between John Neuburgh, Junior and William Jerrard, querents, and Thomas Wilton and Joan his wife, deforciants, of one messuage, eighteen and a half acres of land, three acres of meadow, and a moity of one acre of land and pasture and four oxen, two cows, two young oxen, one heifer, one hundred and twelve sheep in Sutton Poynez. Plea of covenant was summoned. Thomas and Joan acknowledged the tenements and pasture to be the right of William as those which he and John have by their gift, and they remitted and quit claimed the same for themselves and the heirs of Joan to John and William and the heirs of William for ever. Moreover they granted for themselves and the heirs of Joan that they will warrant the said tenements and pasture to John and William and the heirs of William against all men for ever. For this John and William gave to Thomas and Joan twenty pounds sterling. Six documents in the Dorset History Centre, D.1815/40 to 43 and D.1815/46 to 47, dated 1438 and 1440, probably refer to the same transaction

[34] Dorset History Centre D.1815/50 24 Nov 1447 Arbitration award over a disagreement about the manor of Sutton Poyntz. 1447
[To all men to whom] these present writings shall come, William Brownyng, esquire, John Battescombe, Robert Tourges, and Thomas Husee send greetings.
Whereas discord has arisen between [John] Neuburgh, esquire of the one part and James Ormonde, knight and Amicia his wife of the other part, over the title to and possession of the manor of Sutton Poyntz in Dorset. Now at last the said parties and their friends have intervened to peacefully and tranquilly submit the said discord to the decision of William and John Battescombe, arbitrators for James and Amicia, and Robert Tourges and Thomas Husee, arbitrators for John Neuburgh.
The said James and Amicia and John Neuburgh have each entered into bonds for the sum of £1000 each to observe the decision.
The arbitrators have produced evidence and muniments concerning the said premises and after deliberation, judge the matter thus:
The said James and Amicia and John Neuburgh shall before Easter 1453 go before a Justice of the Kings Bench and recognise the said manor to be the right of William Selke, chaplain and William Combe, who are now enfeoffed of the said manor which they hold by the gift of James, Amicia and John, and they have released and quit-claimed the same to the said John Neuburgh.
The said John Neuburgh shall on cognisance before the Justice grant the said manor to William Selke and William Combe and a fine shall be engrossed within one month after Easter, between James, Amicia and John to the care and charge of James, William Selke and William Combe paying an annual rent of £50 out of the profits of the said manor to the said John Neuburgh and his heirs, to be paid four times a year.
And there shall be other clauses in the said fine about remainders and reversions in the event of failure of heirs on the part of James, Amicia or John, illegal entry into the title of the manor and provision to protect the succession to heirs from this, stipulations about the amount of rent to be paid each quarter and the days for paying, which are to be overseen by John, Abbott of Cerne.
Dated at Cerne, 24 November in the 26th year of the reign of Henry VI. [1447]
The original court record is held in the Dorset History Centre (index number D1815/50). It is in Latin, and has suffered some damage. The History Centre index states that this document  includes a history of the manor of Sutton Poyntz, but on examination, this is not so.

It is clear that in 1447, the manor was held by James Butler, Earl of Ormond and his wife Amicia. The arbitrators awarded the manor to James and Amicia, with remainder (should James and Amicia die without issue, as indeed happened) to John Newburgh. The rights of the existing sub-tenants (Revd William Selke and William Combe) were recognised.

Thomas Garrett of London, son and heir of Sir George Garrett, Alderman of the City of London, deceased, Edward Garrett of London, gentleman, second son of Sir George Garrett, William Northey of the Middle Temple, London, William Hitchcock, citizen and draper of London, William Hawkins of London, merchant, Eliab Harvey of London, Roger Clarke of Kingston upon Thames, Surrey, gentleman, and Christopher Barry of Oxted, Surrey, gentleman (1), to Heneage Finch of the Inner Temple, London, and John Prestwood of London, merchant (2). The stated purpose of the lease is for Heneage and John to take a grant or release of the reversion and inheritance, in accordance with the Statute for the conversion of uses into possession. Mechanisms such as this were used in order to remove legal complexities in the ownership of property caused by earlier grants. The likelhood here is that some earlier conveyance of the manor of Sutton Poyntz had created an unwanted reversion (in the event of a death of an owner). Heneage and John were 'sold' the manor for a period in order to 're-lease' it back to its owners at the end of the period without the reversion.

Notes:

1.    Sutton Poyntz and Pentridge
Part of Sutton Poyntz appears to have been held with Pentridge in north-east Dorset. Pentridge was held (for one-third of a knight's fee) by a family whose surname is not known, and whose members alternated between the name Richard and Hamo. We have found the following references to this land unit (none of which helps to establish which bit of Sutton Poyntz it is):

2.   The le Walsh Family
A number of early references that mention Sutton Poyntz relate to a family called Walsh or le Walsh, who owned, among other things, land at Putton and Chickerell, towards Abbotsbury to the west of Weymouth. (The Walshes and their descendents also held land in Somerset from the Newburghs - see the Newburgh references). Putton was part of the 'liberty' of Sutton Poyntz; the owners had regularly to attend the liberty court at Sutton Poyntz. We have so far found the following references to this land at Putton:
 

Date Source Reference
1292/3 Inquisitions post mortem Nicholas Walsh [le Waleyss] dies, holding Huish Champflower in Somerset (previously held by a member of the Newburgh family), land at Athelardstone in Somerset [Atherstone, near White Lackington], land at West Chickerell held of the Hering family, and Putton, held of Hugh Poyntz viz: "Poditon. A knight's fee (extent given), including a pasture called Gormere, held of Sir Hugh Poinz by service of 40s. scutage when it shall happen; whereof Nicholas de Strode holds a fourth part by royal service, and Sir Ingram le Walleis holds a fourth part by royal service and by service of a pair of gilt spurs, price 6d., and the said Nicholas ought to do suit at the said Hugh's court of Sutton [Poyntz] every three weeks; and one Geoffrey de Baris holds a virgate of land in Sutton freely of the said Nicholas by service of 1lb. cummin".
1311 Inquisitions post mortem The Inquisition post mortem for Nicholas Poyntz shows that John Walsh [le Waleys] holds 3/4 of a knight's fee at Putton, Langton [Hering], Broadwey and somewhere called Radeslo.
1333 Inquisitions post mortem John Walsh [le Walisshe] of Putton dies, holding 3/4 of a knight's fee at Putton (now held of Roger and Maud de Chaundos), land at West Chickerell held of the Hering family, and land in Somerset at Huish Champflower (held of Robert Newburgh) and Athelardstone (formerly held by the Newburgh's). John's heir is his son Nicholas Walsh.
1339 Inquisitions post mortem Nicholas Walsh [le Walisshe] of Putton dies, holding land at Huish Champflower and Athelardstone in Somerset, both held of the king, land at West Chickerell still held of the Hering family, and land at Putton still held of Roger and Maud de Chaundos. Nicholas's heirs are his two baby daughters, Joan and Elizabeth.
1342 Patent Rolls Commission of inquiry concerning lands in Athelardestone, Huish Champflower and Putton, previously held by Nicholas Walsh, partly of Walter Heryng and partly of Roger and Matilda Chaundos, which have been in the king's hand since Nicholas's death despite not being held in chief by Nicholas.
1350 Inquisitions post mortem Joan and Elizabeth Walsh [le Walssh] die, on the same day, still minors. They hold basically the same land as their father held at his death, although the land at Putton is now shown as held of Nicholas Poyntz. The land is now spilt between multiple heirs, inheriting through Joan and Elizabeth's four aunts:
Maud (who has died and whose son Simon Brut or Brit inherits her share);
Alice Malet;
Joan le Frere; and
Elizabeth Salmon (who has died, leaving as heirs her grandson John (son of a daughter who has died) and her three daughters Joan le Swon, Lucy Chriket and Christina atte Hulle).
1360 Inquisitions post mortem Maud Clancy (widow of Nicholas le Walssh) has 32 acres of land plus 20d of rent at Putton held in dower of Nicholas Poyntz, and 14 acres plus 12d of rent at West Chickerell held of the lord of Winterborne Heryng. This entry gives a little more detail about the heirs of Nicholas Walsh; the fourth sister is shown here as Edith, Lucy is now married to Richard Malet, and John's mother is given as Elizabeth.
1362 Inquisitions post mortem Joan le Frere dies, still owning her share of the properties. Putton is shown as held of Nicholas Poyntz, and Huish Champflower of Thomas Newburgh of Winfrith. Joan also has land at West Chickerell and Athelardstone. Joan has no surviving children, so her heirs are shown as Simon Brut (son of Maud), Alice (her sister, shown here as Alice le Walisch), and Christina atte Hulle (whose mother is shown here as Edith Sender).
1362 Inquisitions post mortem Rose, widow of John Walsh, dies. Her name is shown as le Walyssh, le Walisch, or Walsch. She evidently was granted part of the family property for life after her husband's death.
1365 Inquisitions post mortem An enquiry into the share of the lands that Elizabeth Salmon would have had, showing that her grandson John (described here as her son) has come of age. The same lands are shown.
1386 Inquisitions post mortem Christina atte Hulle dies. Her share of lands at Putton and West Chickerell are listed as "Two messuages, 1 curtilage, 84a arable, 6a meadow, 3a pasture and 5/4 rent" , held of Alice de Briene and William Filoll respectively. (N.B. When William Filoll dies in 1416, his manor of Langton Herring is shown as held of Alice de Briene, as part of her manor of Sutton Poyntz, as is his land at Winterborne Houghton and Winterborne Whitchurch. Parts of the latter two are later shown as held of Alice by William's widow Joan at her death in 1434.)
This entry gives a short family history repeating the 1350 entry, but again giving Edith for Elizabeth as the fourth sister.
